Origin ot Christmas Gifts.
Now York Mercury.
At the tiie ot the RomanI atur-
la!ia friends, masters and sla ves
easted together, and gifts were ex-
hatiged in a manner similar to the
,resent time. in fact from tlhe
arliost times the giving and receiv-
ng of gifts and the offerings to the
ia r have been the way in which
people have expressed thanks and
hovwn their joyful ness. It is the
Thought and not the xtpe-nse ot the
lihristItas gift that pleases the recip-
aent.
In giving presents at this season
hey should be chosen with love in
he heart and the thought .of suit
bleness.


Secretary Morton shows that Great
Britain is our best customer. Our

Dout's lor Christmas.
Don't pay more for the Christma
tree than you do for the 'ruit. This
is for everybody.
.Don't expect too .mnughc.u the way
of Christmas gifts. You mlay hav
to put your foot in your stoekimng be-
fore you find anything in it. This
is foi those of s-ilgninp tem perament.
Don't buy presents until after you
pay your debts. Give your creditors
a chance to celebrate a merry Chr at-
mas before you perform that duty for
any one else. This is for wholnso-
-ver the coat fite.
DYni't give your boy a drumn anIl

will ti-ke the i.nt antd then you'll
have a sur lusii and have to start a
stlre to reaidu it. Thi- is for a large
and highly amusing class.
Don', Link that the spirit of, good
will, the impulses of genero-sity, and
the jolly latiglh of good fellowship are
thlings that aie less necessary to yol'r
being truly happy all the ye r round
than they are oil Christnmas delay. By
hearing this in mind you may be ahile
to enjoy 1896 as yon have enjoyed
no Ithelr year. Like the fil.-t ",don't,"
this is lor everybody.

Old Christmas Customs.
One custom that has come to uss
troum across the sea is that ot hanging
up stockings on Christinias eve.-Ilit-
tie children are taught that St.
Nichhla,-. biangs in gifts to them
hroiuuKhl closed windows, anid it is

How the Greek Celebrates
Christmas.
It is more than likely that many
)f our Chri t.-tas customls were born
i Greece, more particularly the dec-
arations. lights anl1 games. IHere

to admit that there was nothing for it
but to accept Vickery's confession, and
be satisfied with a solution of the mys-
tery of the locked doors which Inspector
Briggs offered them, namely, that it
was quite possible-though he insisted
he did not urge it as a theory, or a be-
lief of his own-some one had entered
tlie house after the murder, or was con-
cealed in the house all night, and had
secured the doors in order to give him-
self ample time to carry out some plan,
the nature of which was not yet known.
"Of course," added the inspector,
"your business, gentlemen, is concerned
with nothing but the murder of Mrs.
Davorn. I have no desire to confuse you
with secondary matters. "
The 15 jurymen left the house thor-
oughly discomfited. Their visit had
taught them little or nothing. There
was no mystery in the case which had
not been cleared up by Vickery's con-
fession. The mystery of the stolen m6n-
ey did not concern them. It was a mat-
ter for the police.
Having made up their minds so far
the jury and its guardians sought out a
decent restaurant and there discussed a
liberal meal.
When the court was reopened at 8
o'clock the coroner, who seemed to have
got rid of a good deal of his weariness,
informed the iurv :hat Dr. Percival was

mer nonchalance had disappeared, and
he listened with breathless attention to
the doctor's evidence concerning the
chloroform.
Vickery, who had been seated at the
back of the court after it had reassem-
bled, had polished his way forward when
he heard Dr. Percival make his opening
statement. When the witness gave it as
his emphatic opinion that Mrs. Davorn
had not succumbed to the effects of
chloroform, a low cry escaped from him,
a cry which might have been produced
by overwhelming amazement or might
have been a cry of intense relief.
Maurice Leclero seemed hopelessly
puzzled as he stood in the court listen-
ing to the evidence of his friend. Just
as the court adjourned for luncheon Dr
Percival had appeared in the small room
where Inspector Briggs had directed
Ethel Rodney to sit. Leclerc was with
her when Percival-profuse in his apol-
ogies to every one for being late-ar-
rived. The worthy doctor somewhat
flurriedly dispatched Ethel home in his
brougham and then turned to Leclerc.
"I think it will be all right," said
he, pinching the young doctor's arm.
"And now I'm hungry, and I am sure
you are. Let us forget the unfortunate
business we are here to give evidence
about and join our common friend, the
house surgeon, in the hospital He has
promised me a luncheon, and I'll take
the liberty of inviting yoat to join us.
But not a word about the other affair,
if youplease. Norton is going to give
evidence too. He conducted the post
mortem with me."
Leclero was fortunately not aware
that among other documents which In-
spector Briggs carried with him was a
warrant for his arrest, a warrant which
the inspector had decided to put into
operation as soon as the court was over
for the day. When Inspector Briggs
heard the confession of Bernard Vickery,
he was puzzled to decide whether or no
he had better abandon two of the three
warrants he held. As he listened to Dr.
Percival's evidence he had an. uneasy
feeling that the third warrant was in
jeopardy. It was a bewildering case.
lHe would give a good deal to know
what was Goringe's opinion of the
whole matter. But anyhow the self
condemned man had better be put under
lock and key
Dr. Percival did not take long to re-
sume the thread of his narrative. He
knew he had electrified the court, but
his face showed no sense of triumph.
"My impression," he continued, in
a calm and measured tone, "that Mra

now in attendance, and woula at; once
proceed to give h;s evidence.
Dr Stanley Percival was then called,
and approached the table, where the
oath w;ui administered to him. He gave
his edirenc .rapidly and with ease, his
kindly f-c-e lighted up with a look of
intelligence which r i'dt tile jury to a
mani f-eel they were IL: It :'ug to the evi-
dence of oui, in whom they could place
implicit countldence.
Dr Perciv.l testified to his having
been sumurnoued to 13 Felspar road
shortly after 6 o'clock in the morning
by Miss Rodney; to his finding Mra
Davorn dead' in bed-quite cold and
rigid, explained the doctor-and to his
subsequent discovery of the sponge un
der the bed.
He was here interrupted by the fore-
man.
"Can you tell us, sir, at what time--
about what time-in your opinion, the
sponge had been used to chloroform the
deceased?"
The doctor smiled at the question,
the coroner looked up from his notes,
directing a curious glance at the fore-
man, and the foreman himself instantly
collapsed.
S "I can give youno information on
that point," said Dr. PercivaL "All I
tan say is that the spoi6ge contained un-
mistakable traces of eaioroform-traces
that would be apparent to" any one who
had ever used the drug. There was in
the room, as I entered it. the sweet,
fruity, sednerive odor, and to the best
of my bIbelief, judging from this and
from tho cnudlition of the sponge when
I picked it up, the spom'e bad contained

tionl an hour or two lprlious to mv rli -


"Yoar husband just w'nt up in
the elevator. I think he is looking
fir you."
The lady took the next elevator
up. Just then her husband came
down. He looked all around, and
then inquired of the elevator man:
"Have you seen my wiee here?"
"Yes, she jdst went up this mimt-
ute."
The man took the next elevator,
and he was no more than out of
sigltt till his wife came jdwna again.
"Yout husband has just gone up
again," said the elevator man.'
"I guess he'll wait for me this
time, so I'll go up." And up she
went.
Down came her husband a second
aflterard.
"Did my wife come down again?"
he inquired.
"Yes, and just went up agait. She
thought you would wait for her."
"Well, I'il wait here."
He waited about five minutes, and
then, growing impatient, took an
elevator up stairs. She had been
waiting for hiim, and came down
again just as he disappeared.
"Well, I will wait fori him and
catch him this time," said she.
After kt ending in thle corridor sev-
eral minutes she decided to go up
stairs and find him. As she whisked
out of sight he stepped out of another
elevator.
'*Your wife has just gnhe up." said
the elevator mali.
The husband swore a little undef'
his breath and started to leave the
building. At the door he hesitated,
changed his mind and took the next
elevator tip. Down came his wife at
the-same moment.
"Hle's just gone up again," was
tlhe elevator man's answer to her
,weary look ol inquiry. "and he'a
nmad as a hornet."
-Then I had better go right up
and catch him,"' said she.

elevator nman.

on the 9th of October and 2 o'clock on
the morning of the 10th."
There was a profound stillness iii the
court as Dr. Percival delivered himself
of his opinion as to the exact cause of
Mrs. Davorn's death.
The coronerBas the first to speak.
"Then, your opinion, doctor," he
said, "is that this chloroform had noth
ing to do with the death of the deceased,
Martha Davorn?"
"That is certainly my opinion.'

The death of Rev. Hayden Ray-

moves from earth the best known
pioneer preacher in the Middle W\ t.
He was in his 84th year, and hadI
been engaged in the minis ry for
sixty years. He was known in In-
diana as "the much marrying preach-'
er," and as a matrimonial agent lhe
had a record not surpasied in Amer-

Pensacola Times: It will be re-
membered that some time ago
Surveyor-General W. H. Milton,
Jr., .*f Tallahassee, made a demand
on Circuit Clerk Jno. de la Rna for
the old Spanish records of Escamibia
county. This was refused on tie
ground that they belonged to this
county. The refusal was carried
before the in rior department, ai.d
the department ruled that they were
the property of the state and the
records, consisting of five volumes,
were .o yesterd-, sent t, Tallaha.see.
Mewsrs. Malloriy~ nd IBlount made a
S, .1 i'
strong appeal ti te nautioritiesn ifo
them to remain n the custody of the
clerk, but it ws refused. The boo ks
look very old, and have been in use a
hundred years or more. Some of the
records are written in Spanish, andl
to an ordinary person would be very
hard to understand.

We wish all pur readers a merry
and happy Christmas and a prosper-
ous New Year.

CATARRH
Cisstrictly a
T40OCAL DISEASE
,d is the recsut of sud-
den climatic cLanges.

S]ly's Gream Balm
is acknowledged to be the most thorough
cure for Nasal Catarrh. Cold hi the Head
and Hay Fever, of all remedies. It opens
and cleanses the nasal passages, allays
pain and inflammation; heals the sores,
protects the membrane from colds, re-
stores the senses of taste and smell. The
Balm is applied directly into the nostrils,
is quickly absorbed and gives relief at
once. The results that follow catarrh,
due to the dropping of poisonous matter
into the throat, are irritation of the bron-
chial tubes and soreness of.lie lungs ac-
companied by a cough. In all such
cases we recommend Pineola Balsam to
he used in connection with Cream Balm.
FLY'S PINOLA BALSAM will be found ex-
cellent for all throat and lung inflamma-
mations and for
asthma. Con-
Ssumptives will in-
varially derive
(f benefit from its
a use, as it quickly
abates the cough,
pectoration easy,
assisting nature
in restoring wast-
ed tissues. There is a large percentage
%f those who suppose their cases to be
consumption who are only suffering from
a chroniii cold or deep-seated cough, often
aggravated by catarrh. Both remedies
are pleasant to use. Price of Cream Balm,
50c. perbottle; Pineola Balsam, 25c. InI
quantities of $2.5 Qwe will deliver free of
express or postage, on receipt of amount.

Pensacola Times: Pensacola has
gotten the goby again; so we learn
frim a private note today. Whole-
sale merchants can not use the rail-
road in competition with our sister
cities, and now the "Gulf City" on
the line between Mobile and Apalachi-
cola, has given us the slip. Now if
there is any "git up and git" among
our merchants, Board of Commerce
and Young Men's Business League
in our town, it is time for them to
unite, in securing a share in the
trade,


Not an Xmas.
It had been a Very hard week in the
street and Tom Sellshort was feeling
poorer than a millionIire with personal
taxes due. Conseqneitly he felt like
running for the door when his wife
greeted him with a cheery, "I'm making
out a list of Christmas presents, dear,
and you're just in time."
D "Time-that's what I'll need if I pay
for them," thought Tom, but he kissed
his wife and sat down to assist her.
"How much have you spent already
on paper?"
"Well, it's $200," she admitted slow-
ly, "but you see that buys presents for
four-four people. I don't think that's
very bad. Do your dear?"
"No-o-o-o," Tom replied a little
doubtfully, "but how-how many are
we going to remember at $50 per re-
member?"
"'There are only eight more expensive
presents, dear, but here is another-an-
other little list of about-about 30
presents, dear"-Mrs Sellshort began
timidly.
"What! Another list?" Tom exclaim-
ed. "Never mind the items. How
much are we short?"
The pretty woman beside him buried
her face in her kerchief and sobbed,
"I-I think you-you are very unkind,
after I've worked so hard pre-prepar-
ing the 1-1-lists"-
"Theie, there, dear," Tom said sooth-
ingly, patting her shoulder. "Never
mind. It's all right. My credit's still
good at Starcy's. What's the total of
your little list?"
"Six-six hundred and th-thirty dol-
lars," was the faint reply from the
depths of the handkerchief.
"Let me see," thought Sellshort.
"Six hundred and thirty and two hun-
dred is eight hundred and thirty dollars,
and that added to the eight hundred
dollar piano I have promised the little
girl here makes sixteen hundred and
thirty dollars for merry Christmas
presents, eh? Never mind, little girl,"
he added aloud. 'Get them all at
Starcy's and have them charged. They
sell everything there from a hairpin to
a house and lot. So .don't cry any
more. "
It was cold weather, but Sellshort
paused a moment to mop his prespiring
brow. "I'll get the piano of Beethoven
Bros.," he thought, "and hang them up
for it, temporarily, I hope. And so they
call Christmas Xmas, do they? Well, if
things don't brighten up pretty soon it
won' be an Xmas for Starcy and Bee-
thoven Bros. ihis year. It will be just an
SMDCXXXmas, sure pop'!"
A Notable Trademark Declsioi.
MADISON, Wis Nov. 28.-Specidl.-
Judge Roianzo Bunn, U. S. Circuit
Judge for the Western District of
Wisconsin has decided for defendants
in the case of the Sterling. Remedy
,-Co.,i trroprietrn of '"Noto Bac,"
against the Eureka Chemical &f Mfg.
Co., proprietors of "Baco-Curo."
Suit was brought by the former April
3rd last, asking $20,000 damages and
an injunction restraiining defendant
from using the na:ne "Baco-Curo,"
from advertising-the same and from
using boxes, racks, etc., which, it
was claimed, were niifiingments upon
those used by "No-to-Bac," Judge
Bunn decides for defendants 0n the
ground that no marked similarity
exists, that no infiingment has been
made and that "Baco-Curo" by its
injunction, "Don't Stop Tobacco,"
shows itself to be entirely distinct
from "No-to-Utac," in that the latter
requires the patient to cease using
tobacco when commencing the
remedy. By the terms of the order
the complainant's bill is dismissed
and costs are taxed in favor of defend-
ant. The case has excited especial
interest inasmuch as it is the first of
like character ever heard in the
Wisconsin Federal courts and the
decision, it is believed, will govern
in all similar cases, Judge Burn being


noted as an able jurist both in Wis-
consin and elsewhere.

DIAR SIRS:-I have been a tobacco fiend for many years, and during the past
two years have smoked fifteen to twenty cigars regularly every day. My whole
nervous system became affected, until my physician told me I mus give up the
use of tobaooo or the time being at least. I tried the so-called "Keeley Cure,"
"No-To-Bac," and various other remedies, but without success, until I accident-
aly learned of your "Baco-Curo." Three weeks ago to-day I commenced using
yaur preparation, and to-day I consider myself completely cured; I am in perfect
health, and the horrible craving for tobacco, which every inveterate smoker
fully appreciates, has completely left me. I consider your "Baco-Curo" simply
wonderful, and can fully recommend it. Yours very truly, C. W. HORNIC.

ORGANTZ ED JANUARY. 9, 1892.

The purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.


'" lC aecomplisli this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
r- r-eion of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will euhance the
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
AS TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
Seaition reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
tio make improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost, of
the sanie with- any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own Irome to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
Ihe Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilffrels
for damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plifutation n.,the St. Andrews Bay country a few f"iurcs are given:
Price of ana per acre, say$25 to $50; cost of c:enring, say $-20; ost of planting st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year there;ater, $20
It is not extravagal:> to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longej, some of then, in coming into profitable hearing may be named p'ars, apricots,
Ceetarine p1'n ern ,Iull r ,l>it-" olives, Japan tn. r-tumon," :llnu. ]n \'l-I ]
--"irinits, .la.p ,i. > h .tiu r., p ,.anii-, na il ,.,any other vani i:ri, : ,, r I i'l' ,' iints. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, th ugh not con-
sidered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular atteirtion to an-
awering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
ower all questions asked it.
R REM E M BE R, the Association Lands will be sold on Easy

The Man for the Occasion.
Not long since Sando ,. was going
from Kansas City to Ow)aha, and tlhe
strong ma had occasion to go into
the day oanao, says tle St. Louis
Retublic,' Iin passing through the
oar he was accosted by a tlal gentle,
man with long side whiskers, a la
Taffy.
"Excuse me, sir," he said, "but
are you not Mr. Sandow?".
"Yes,"' said the strong main.
"IYon can lilt three tons ini har-


ss?" 4Alexander's "Burial of Moses," etc.,
"Yes, sir, that is my record," the etc. The efforts of such as tlhese-


Hercules returned.
"You can hold 2i0 weight at arms'
length?"

"'And put up 800 pounds with one
arni?"
"Yes."
".iand 600 with two?"
"Yes "
"Well, then, wnuld you kindly
raise this car window for me?"
A Christina. Legend From the
SAlps.
Kansas C ty Times.
Here and there prevails the strange
belief that horses and cattle cak in
hunmiii language o Ilthe night pre-
ceding Christmas day. It is a sin to
li. ten to w-hat the animals say, oi in
any way to try to hear tlien. Not
to believe that they talk is also a
sin.
An Alpine story is told of a fa:rm-
er's servant who did not believe that


the cattle could s:-csk, and, to make


sure, he hid in his master'.' stable
on Christmas eve and listened. When
the clock struck 12, he was surprised
at what he heard.
"We shall have hard work to do
this day week," said one hose.
"Yes; the farmer's servant is
heavy," answered the other horse.
"And the way to the churchyard
is long and steep," said the first.
Tle servant was buried that da.
week.

I am prepared to issue more to-

Thlie war in Cuba will cut off tlie sup-

Interesting' and Usetiil.
Our recent offer of that exception-
ally clarminig work. "Fireside Gen.s
of Art, Poetry an'i Prose,"' has struck
the key-note of popular approval in
the manv ones this paper reaches.
The class of boiks to lhich the
"Fireride Gems' series belong is
necessary in eve:v nmlerlN literature,
and in none so neceHsary as in En-
glish literature, which in extent and
variety surpasses all othePi literatuires
put together. Such books containing
thlie best of everything will not become
o:ut-of-date and obsolete. There is a
positive and continued reasonI for
there existence, since they carry a
knowledge of Engglisl literature where
it would not otherwise go, aiid make
readers familiar with many writers,
