In the Sunshine.
Ah! we never miss the sunshine
Till the stoim clouds roll apace,
And we never miss the dear love
Till we see the cold, dead face;
And our hearts are seldom melted
Till the voice is hushed and still,
Of the loved one we have walked witl
Up the pathway of life's hill.
Let us linger in life's sunshine
Till the last glad ray departs;
Let the twilights and the dawnings
Link the closer trusting hearts;
Then each morrow will be brighter
For the sunshine that hath been,
And life's burden be the lighter
For the sympathies between.
Ohi to speak some words of kindness
In the ear of human woe
Is like eyes to stony blindness
Of the groping ones below;
So the touch of tender fingers
On the throbbing brow of pain
Is the sweet of life that lingers
Ere we turn to earth again!

Egypt as a Comp *litor.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17.-United
States Consul Panfield, at Cairo,
Egypt, has made a report to the state
department which will from its im-
portance be made the subject of a
special publication, calling attention
to the rapid growth of Egypt as a
competitor with the United States for
the cotton markets of the world. He
says that his former representations
appearing to have failed to secure the
attention which the subject demand-
ed, he is induced to once more strong-
ly urge the United States cotton
producers to make efforts to meet this
At present Egyptian cotton is sold
at Alexandria for 2 cents per pound
more than the price of American cot-
ton, and or ing to the superiority of
the Egyptian product it is being pur.
chased in quantities for export to the
United States. The sales which ten
years ago amounted to but 3,815
bales, have increased until from the
best estimates it is believed that dur-
ing the year beginning Sept. 1, 1895,
no less than 50,000 bales will be
shipped to the United States, and as
these Egyptian bales are 50 per cent
larger than the American, the exports
to this country will really amount to
75,000 bales according to our stand-

r Mr. Panfield urges that efforts be
f made by our planters to grow the
e Egyptian long staple cotton ii this
Country, holding that there must
certainly be some section adapted to
its growth, probably the Mississippi
valley or the Brazos river section in

New Yearos in Ancient Rome.
The Romans offered sacrifices to
Janus and were very careful how they
conducted themselves for the first
few days, as upon their behavior de-
pended their good or ill luck for the
coming year. The Saxons celebrated
the advent of the new year with
special rites, and mistletoe cut in pe-
culiar forms was a favorite gift.

Can Cats Count?
A friend has several cats which
have been taught t' :make their
homes in a barn, says a writer ii, Oc-
tober Meehan's Monthly. One of
the workman in the establishment
has been for a number of years in the
habit of bringing the food from his
house, after every di iner time, for
these cats A remarkable fact is
that they go from the barn to the
entrance of the gate property always
about 15 or 20 minutes be ore the
workman makes his appearance.
Jnst how they come ito learn this
exact time of day is not clear, al-

to some extent. Strange to say that
although this has been going on for
several years, th- cats do not seem to
know that every seventh day is Sun-
day, and that the workman does not
make his appearance at the gro-nds
on that day, yet regularly every Sun-
lay, for all these many years, they
come to meet him, only to be doomed
to disappointment. It would seem
from this cat. have not the power to
count,, or they surely wonld be able
:o kn,.w by this time that there is a
seventh day when they would be
loomed to disappointment in their
daily meal.

What Happy New Year Means.
A happy New Year? What does
t mean? Are not these words often
hrown out as a greeting without
thought or depth of meaning? It is a
rear in which to ourselves come
health and health, prosperity and
friendship; one spent in the pursuit
f fleeting pleasure and filled with
elf centered interest? No! Rather
et the wish be to each and all, as
he new year dawns with all its op-
>ortunities, that the days of 1896
nay be well spent-filled with
bought and sympathy for those
round, that in self forgetting and
:indly deeds the happiness of others
nay be ever sought, ahd then most
ruly will each act rebound again in
oy and blessing to the heart from

which it springs.

Ad your inference'is that if chloro-
was administered it must have
been administered after death?"
'"That is my opinion, if I may ven-
ture on an opinion in such matters. "
"We shall now let you have the evi-
dence of Dr. Norton, who assisted Dr.
f Peroival in the post mortem,' said the
Coroner, with a briskness which almost
alarmed the 15 jnry3en.
The coroner had scarcely concluded
'his sentence when a strange hoarse cry
ledrtl the court
very eye earned in the direction
m which th came.
Albert Steinorth was seen to throw
up his arms, and before Constable Met-
calf, who stood near, could grasp the
young man, Steinworth had fallen down
in a fit.
Detective Goringe smiled again.

"Here's a pretty kettle of fish I" said
Inspector Briggs to Detective Goringe,
as the pair sat in a room in the police
station at Clayfields
It was the evening of the 12th of Oc-
tober, and the coroner's inquiry had
been adjourned to the following Mon-
"Vickery confesses to murder,"
growled the inspector; "doctor swears
the woman died a natural death. Stein-
worth, whom I had fixed upon, clears
himself completely, yet he falls down
in a fit wltn he hears that the chloro-
form was administered a little too late.
Leolerc seems to be out of it altogether,
and yet all through he has been as nerv-
ous aa a cat. Come, now, Mr. Goringe,
it is only fair to ask you for your views
at this stage. Whatever we do, we
mustn't get hold of the wrong sow by
the ear."
"I don't think it is sovery difficult,"
said the detective, "to'reconcile Vick-
erv'r confetmion,with tho rrFctor's tate-
ments as to the absolute cause of dkath.
But as I have frequently told ou I
don't deal in opinions. I still possess

you see now how rash it would have
been to fix upon any one so early in the
day-before we had the medical evi-

somewhat sour smile. "I have no doubt
I see how you mean to reconcile the
man Vickery's statement with the doc-
tor's as to the cause of death. In fact,
old Percival himself ventures on an
opinion in the matter. Vickery could
have attempted to chloroform Mrs. D.
at the time he stated, only he was in ig-
norance of a rather important fact--
namely, that he was operating on a dead
"But then we get back to those
locked doors, and that's what fixes me
and confuses the whole business, for I
am wholly of your opinion"--
"Please don't tie me down to opin-
ions'," interrupted Goringe.
"Well, of your conviction, if you like
the word better, that no outside aid
was brought into requisition."
"Dear me, dear me l" said the detect-
ive, with a sigh. "Is it not a dreadful
thing to contemplate how a man's
words may get distorted? I have never
declared I possessed any such conviction.
What I did say was that the front par-
lor window was not opened from the
"I stand corrected," said Inspector
Brigg. "But I must confess you don't
help me much."
"I give you all the help I possibly
can. In the first place, remember our
bargain. I was to have the thief-you
the murderer. Now haven't I done my
very best to keep you from jumping to
conclusions? I consider I have done
really good and useful work in that di-
rection. I have made you cautious and
prevented you from arresting an inno-
cent man Atthe same time-don't look
so glum, inspector-I am ready now to
Listen to any new views of yours, with
the new light that has been thrown
apon the whole case, and to discuss
hem with you openly."
"Thanks Well, then, here are three
men in desperate need of money"--
"No uncommon want," interrupted
the detective. "But you Will pardon me
for saying that you are not quite correct.
Steinworth probably wanted money.
Vickery, with some insane project in
his head, thought he did. Leclero doesn't
mow what he wants. He belongs to
that order of young man who, if you
etched the moon for him at his own
request, would tell you the planet was
worn out and of no use, and that the

'arthest fixed star was really the thing
which he thought would suit his require'
ments. But I interrupted you."
"A useful interruption, perhaps, but,
aS usual, a sort of a damper. Well,
whatever you may think, or say, or ad-
rise, I will confess that I have not been
ble to shift my first impression out of
ny head."
"Your first suspicion was Stein-
"Yes. And his behavior in court to-
Lay, notwithstanding Vickery's candid
onfeasioai and the doctor's evidence,
ias cbnfirmed me in my impression that

sible that he is sub3jet to tantintg na,
and the fit he had in court this after-
noon may have been absolutely uncon-
nected with anything that ever hap
opened at 18 Felspar road."
"The damper again."
"No-the brake, or the caution sig
nal, if you like. People of 9ur cloth
must learn to work on the block system
with a continuous brake."
"I think yon puzzle me quite as
much asthe case itself. But let me re
sume. Steinworth was certainly locked
into his room at 6 o'clock in the morn-
ing, and did not get in or out of his bed-
room window. Vickery was also looked
into his room at 6 o'clock in the morn-
ing. Yet his statement-which was a
most clear and straightforward and oon-
vincing statement-is that he attempted
to chloroform Mrs. D. and that he stole
the 1,800. He did not get in or out ci
his bedroom that night."
"On that point I admit I now have a
conviction. Vickery did not get in or
out through his window."
"Then you think it possible that
Vickery, for some reason which we
can't fathom, has falsely accused him-
self. There is conclusive evidence that
his sponge-he identifies it-was ds
covered in the dead woman's room. 1
am forced to admit that fact is very
strong corroboration of his confession,
and yet I amstill of opinion that if
Steinworth didn't do the job hie knows
who did."
"I was about to give you my views
definitely on that point when we start-
ed, but I now think I shall wait. It
will be better for both of us."
"I am afraid we are waiting rather
long as it is. Losing valuable time."
"I am not losing any time. I have
concentrated my whole attention on the
discovery of the thief and the recovery
of the money, and though I cannot at

this stage report any progress which
would satisfy so exacting a person as
you, inspector, I know I am neither los-
ing time nor making any steps back-
"Then you have some definite theory
about the theft?"
"I have. But it is not in a form yet
which will bear discussion. If I put
you in possession of my theory"-
"I thought you didn't deal in such
things," interrupted Inspector Briggs,
"I don't put my theories into shape
until I am certain they are capable of
demonstration. As I was saying, if I
laid my mind open to you now it might
possibly hamper you in your search for
the murderer."
"Anyhow you will pardon me for cor-
recting you. There has been no murder,
and therefore there is no murderer to
"You need not beso precise about
your terms with a pal," said Goringe,
a little nettled at Briggs' interruption.
"I should, of course, have said your
search for the man who attempted to
murder Mrs. Davorn."
"But there is neither a murder nor
an attempt to murder. It is a relief to
find you tripping," observed Briggs
with a laugh.
"You mustn't let the absence of a
murder discourage you," said Goringe.
"I know it is an unpleasant thing to
find out that a murderer has been rude-
ly snatched from your grasp just as you
felt you had the barnacles on him, but
you must bear in iind that if a thief in
the act of committing a theft seeks to
chloroform a person who' is afterward
proved to have died a natural death he
aggravates his offense very ionsiderably
and rises to a somewhat high rank in
our criminal brigade. Didn't I wart'
you in the beginning that this murder
business was full of pitfalls?"
"The warning hasn't helped me
much," said Inspector Briggs, gloom-
"Base ingratitude, sir," said Detect-
ive Goringe, with a sigh. "I sympa-
thize with you, I am sure I know the
state of your feelings now. Something
like the French ideal of an Englishman
-one who wants to go out and kill
something. You are eager now to go
out and arrest somebody for murder.
All this disappointment comes of taking
a violent interest in people who commit
capital offenses-a class of people upon
whom it is difficult to place the least
dependence. My lesser delights in track-
ing thieves-who are usually as sane as
company promoters-have, after all,
their corresponding advantages. What-
ever you do, inspector, please don't lose
your temper with me.
"I'll try not to-but this i9m't any
tim for chaff. WA shall s a intn a nroe.


Here is Vickery arrested on his own u:i

was marching toward them with
7,000 or 8.000 men. Thiss was eln.

the news came that Gen.'ral H6'vw

What could he do? To ritrea't was to

-The St. Andrews Bay Horticul-
tural and Improvement Association is

en them. It will pay all persons to buy
a trac from them and have itimproved.
-The store building at Parker
now occupied by W. H. Shands will be for

if not the very best business locations on
the whole bay, and a splendid opportunity
is open for a successful enterprise.
-For Rent-A Smith Grubder or

rfactory and will rent it to responsible

-If you are thinking of buying
property in St. Andrews or immediate vi-
cinity, you cannot afford to purchase until

wapt to buy on your own time 'or actual
settlemrent you cav be accommodated.
-On account of the heavy storm
in the gulf last week the steamer Gulf
City did not arrive from Mobile until
Sunday morning. She left Mobile on
time but had to put into Pensacola for
harbor, where they remained until qatur-
day. She is expected to arrive again the
last of the week.
-Did you ever stop to'think how
important it is always to be on time' and
that in order to be so you must possess a
good timepiece, and this leads to the sug-
gestion that T. C Danford has in his store
a large stock of clocks, ranging from
sm ll inexpensive ones to larger and more
elaborate ana costly timepieces, all war-
ranted to keep good time and sold at
prices as cheap as are consistent with re-
liable articles.
-We are informed by Mr. G. W.
Surber that some one is killing liogs in
the northern edge of town, and burying
the hides. He says while hbe has lost
none himself, that his neighbors are
suffering from such depredations, and
that Mr. Braxton has lost nearly his
whole stock of hogs. It is pretty nearly
known who the parties are that is doing
the killing, and with a little more evi-
dence some one will have to take a trip to
the county seat. Better be careful and
save considerable trouble.

-A feeling of joy pervaded the
entire community when the schooner
Nettie landed at Ware's wharf Monday,
having been thoroughly overhauled and
put in first-class condition since going
ashore on Santa Rosa island some nine
weeks ago. The Nettie has so long at-
tended to the wants of the people of St.
Andrews that every one feels an interest
in her, and congratulate themselves and
the owners that the accident did not
prove more serious. With a little more
fixing up in the cabin she will be in as
good condition for the accommodation of
passengers as ever, and as before the
crew will be found courteous and willing
to accommodate and assist passengers in
any way possible.
-By reference to advertisement
elsewhere in this issue, it will be seen
that the Peachwood Nurseries of State
Line, Miss. are again in the field for the
benefit of horticulturists and all who ex-
pect to plant out fruit ani ornamental
trees, plants and vines. The Buor is as-
ssured that the stock. which every one
who has ever bought from them knows,
has always been first class in every par-
ticular, is better and more extensive this
year than ever before and an inspection
of Mr. Coles' new catalogue will convince
one of the truth of the claim, and
those intending to plant should look it
over before ordering. A copy of the cat-
alogue can be had at this office, or Iby ad-
dressing the proprietor at State Line.
Clubs will b. forming at the Buor office
from now on throughout the planting
season and by joining one of these, trees
.ay be got at catalogue prices and con.
siderable can be saved in the -ay of
freight by the clubbing system, and the
sooner the orders go in the better are the
chances fer the choicest stock-.

Christmas in St. Andrews.
Christmas day dawned bright and
pleasant, with the thermometer at
66. The day was passed very quiet-
ly by our citizens, the only thing that
distinguished it from any other day
was thesmall boy with his tin horn,
and flags were flying from the vessels
in the bay.
At night there was a grand ball
and supper at the Swan Crest hotel,
which was attended by about forty
couple. Mr. Bondirant had been
preparing for this occasion for some
time, and everything was conducted
-in first-class style, and the supper,
was all that any one could wish.
All present expressed themselves as
having an excellent time, and we
congratulate Mr. Bondurant and his
good lady on the success of the occa-
Christmas eye there was a-Christ-

distributed from the tree.

The Nicaragua Canal.
Pursuant to call of the chairman
of the Nicaragua Canal Society of
Florida the earns e mt in con-
vention in Jacksonville o n
Dec. 18th, in view of the purpose
of suggesting to congress the appro-
priation of a sufficient amount to
afford an early completion of the
Convention was called to order
precisely at noon, with Francis P.
Fleming as president, and Benjamin
Harrison, of Ocala, as secretary.
The introductory remarks were
made by the chair as follows:
"Mr. Fleming said that the canal
would save upwards of 10,000 miles
of water navigation to a large propor-
tion of the commerce of the world;
that the greatest good would result
to the United States; that it would
enable this country to share the com-
merce now almost monopolized by
Great Britian through the Suez canal
and wonu p en up an unlimited
market fiW Anmerican cotton, and that
the increase int commerce would re-
vive atd sttimulate shipbuilding and
create a demand for labor and materi-
al. Florida, he said, would especi-
ally be greatly benefited by the canal,
inasmuch as her geographical posi-
tion is at the gateway of the propos-
ed new inter-oceanic highway. He
recommended that the convention me-
morialize congress and urge the same
course upon other states."
Immediately following the address
of Mr. Fleming a resolution was
introduced by Hon. W. D. Chipley,
of Escambia, expressing sincere ap-
proval of the policy of Piesident
Cleveland, in regard to the Vene-
zuelan question, as treated in his
special message.
The secretary then read the min-
utes of the preceding session held in
Tallehassee Jan. 3d. The minutes
were approved and the roll of dele-
gates by counties was called, also
the iames of the various committees
were called. They were with very
few exceptions represented by author-
ized delegates.
The main debate in the conven-
tion was the outgrowth of a resolu-
tion introduced by Mr. McNamee, of
Lake, requesting of congress the ap-
propriation of a sufficient amount to
dredge a f6w of the harbors and riv-
eV of thleltate. The proposal was
IfrincipallM o 5elcirlr'"sy Mr. En-
slfow, of t. Augustine, who had for
the foundation of his remarks the
fact that the consideration of that
recommendation :..as not germane to
the purpose for which the convention
was called. Not withstanding the
opposition tendered by the gentleman
from St. Augustine the resolution
was adopted by acclamation. At
about five o'clock the convention
adjourned to meet in Jacksonville in
November to elect delegates to the
National Canal convention.
SIt is apparncut, judging by the
nonclhalent attention given by Wash-
ington county to all subjects which
come before it, having for their pur-
pose the promotion of our welfare,
the people do not fully appreciate the
grand possibilities which lie before
the section for which nature has
done so much. Tihe Buoy, to say the
least, was surprised to learn that
Washington county was so unfortun-
ate as not to be represented by
authorized delegates. They were
appointed,as in other counties. It in
.not the intent to criticize the ability

and integrity of the gentlemen by
whom them proxies were voted.
It is not our belief that Washing-
ton county. apart from all others, is
so heavilyIengrossed in public busi-
ness as to-Ae unable,to spare a few of
hIr citizens for so momentous an
occasion. Nevertheless the hearty
sympathy of the Buoy i:; extended to
the oproglfohrs of this project, and it
hopes that their ambition may be
early gratified.

"I had heart disease for 8 yearve,
my heart hurting me almost continually.

New Year's In 1790.
Philatelphia Times.
New Years day, 1790, was one of
special interest to those who delight
in tracing facts concerning this
method ot celebration. President
Washington, then in the first year of
his first term, lived at the Franklin
House, in Cherty street, New
The city was then a little Dutch
town of cobblestones aind gardens,
cmitaining about 1,400 houses and
20,000 people, must of whom were
tradesmen and mechanics of every
limited means.
The president had lived among
them several months, but most of
them had held aloof through the awe
inspired by his great character and
his high office. But on this New
Year's day a great number of them
put on their best cocked hats, their
Sunday wigs ar.d all their bert
cl,,thes and called upon the piesi-

conspiracy to assassinate George M.
Pullman and Phillip D. Armour has
just come to light, and every effort is

No One Nation Can Maintain the Relativ
Values of Two Metals.
Question.-Can the United States
alone maintain bimetallism?
Question.--Why not?
Answer.-Because no one nation in
the world can fix and maintain interna-
tional values, and certainly none can fix
and indefinitely maintain the relative
values of any two metals. If we put ar-
bitrary relative values on gold and sil-
ver, the one we valued below the price
fixed by supply and demand in the
world's markets would seek other coun-
tries, where its values and purchasing
power would be greater, while the one
we valued above the market price would
remain with us and become the standard
of value by which we conduct our busi-
SQuestion.--Are you in favor of the
independent free coinage of silver by
the United States?
Answer.-No; for the reason that
that would infallibly mean silver mon-
Question.-Why so?.
Answer.-Because gold is worth 82
times as much as silver in the markets
of the world today. In other words, an
ounce of gold is worth as much as 82
ounces of silver, and the United States
cannot change that relative valuation
and permanently maintain such change
by simply passing a law that an ounce
of gold shall b-' worth 16 ounces of sil-

ver and no more, and as one can obtain
in any of the markets of the world to-
day more than 800 grains of standard
silver for -5 8-10 grains of standard
gold our passing a free coinage law that
any one from any part of the world who
brings 412% grains of standard silver
to our mint shall receive $1, which, by
law, shall pass current the same as $1
containing 25 8-10 grains of standard
gold, would instantly cause gold to be
withdrawn from circulation, and 412%
grains of silver would thus become the
standard by which the worth of our dol-
lar would be measured.-"Merchant"
in Charlotte (N. C.) Observer.

All That Will Circulate.
The people have in their pockets all
the silver that will circulate, and w)
have, counted as cash silver in the
treasury, $518,000,000, or nearly 15,000
tons. That is theway we have "demon-
etized" silver.-Marat Halstead..

St. Andrews Baptist ChurCh.
Correspondence of the Buor.
A very unusual event took place at
the Baptist church la-t Friday night.
By the aid rende,-red by some benevo-
lent christian ladies of Peoria, Ill., the
society were able to cancel some notes,
and Mrs. L. Harrison was delegated to
burn them, which she did with great
pleasure. She also read a note as
follows: "I enclose $5 in response to
your request, with many kind wishes.
May you and I, and all who love the
Lord, be found of him in peace when he
shall come."
The society now own a lot and build-
ing; the building is small and unfin-
ished, yet it presents to the world the
rare spectacle of a church free from
debt. The Baptists have no confession
of faith or discipline, but take the New
Testament as their rule and guide and
there find the command, "owe no man
anything, except to love one another."
A vote of thanks was passed by the
church for the gift of the Peoria ladies,
and Mrs. Harrison was authorized to
convey the same to them. A vote of
thanks was also extended the manager
of the Georgia Stove Works for the gift
of a beautiful Electric Heater,, one of
the best of the kiind manufactured. It
is of sufficient power to warm the build-
ing, affording genial warmth without
dust or smoke, and requiring no outlay
for a chimney. It is a gem in its own
The building is a protection from the
rain, but not from the cold, as it is
neither plastered or ceiled, yet this lit-
tle society at the close of the year has
much to be thankful for. By the gift
of the Baptist Southern Convention it
has literature until June. They also
have a very good supply of bibles, tes-
taments and song books for the use of
the Sabbath school. It enters upon the
new year with renewed courage, and a
determination to keep its light trimmed
and burning. L. H.

lly's Cream Balm
is acknowledged to be the most thorough
cure for Nasal Catarrh, Cold in 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 the lungs ac-
companied by a cough. In all such
cases we recommend Pineola Balsam to
be used in connection with Cream Balm.
FLY'S PINOLABALSAM will be found ex-
cellent for all throat and lung inflamma-

DEAR 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 must give up the
use of tobacco for 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
-your 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.

^ -Assoieation.

ORGAN '1 "t 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.
1u. accomplish 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
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance 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.
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
clation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to miake improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the sam- with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Hank at their own Ihome to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily shoa that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
the Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping,guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price of aun pe acrp, say $25 to $50; cost of Ilearing, say $20; ost of planting Ist
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $-20
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
yonr, if proporly.cultivated, yield $U00O worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do green Ietter than that. Then, thongh perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in corning into profitable Dearing may le named pears, apricots,
nectarines, .lumis, prunes. mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and ...any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con.
eidered certain yield large returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
R E M E M BE R, the Asociation Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must Ie paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CORRE SPONDENCE SOLICITED.

A Happy New Year.
Emily Marhmallow was spending
the holidays with her dearest friend,
and on the first morning of the new
year they were discussing their faults
and turning over enu.agh fresh leaves
to fill a b~ok. From this they fell
upon the failings of their mutual
"If I were as jealous as Jessie,"
observed the blonde Emily, "I should
turn oyer a new leaf in regard to that

brunette Lucy, "she has decided not
to taste candy for a whole year."
"It always did ruin her complex-
"Yes. Jealousy is so foolish, isn't
it? Charley always says I have
"Nor 1. Ja'k thinks it is won-
Just then the maid appeared, bear-
ing a box.
"Miss Lucy, here is a box of flow-
ers for-"
"For me?"
"For Miss Emily."
When it was opened, on top of
the roses was a card, bearing the
name of 'Charles Brownsmith," and
"New Year's greeting."
"Oh, how lovely of him.'"
"Who, Jack?"
"No; Charlie."
"Very nice, indeed, to pay my
guest some attention. Of course I
don't care, but I think it unneces-
sary for him-"
"You surely are not jealous, dear?
For my part, I thliuk an engaged
man has a perfect right to send flow-
ers to any girl whom he admires."
Another knock and another box of
flowers. This time the roses were for
Lucy, with the card of "Jack Van-
style," and "Best wishes for a Hap-
py New Year."
"How kind of Jack. Do look,
dear Emily,."
"Very nice, of course; he only
wished to please me, but I-"
"Why. you know, dear, you just
said you thought an engaged man
had a perfect right to send flowe.'s to
any girl whom he admired."
"Whom he admired, yes, but-"
"Don't be jealous, dear; it is

door, "I knocked, but you didn't

he exchanged the cards in those

Origin of New Year's Customs.
New Year's cuPtoma in the United
States are evidently the result of so-
cial evolution of that law the scient-
ists call "natural selection, and sur-
vival of the fittest." In other words,
each set of thi. early immigrants
brought or deyihed its own customs,
and those best suited to the nature of
the country and genius o: the people
have become general, while all others
have been quietly dropped. It is
not easy to trace the origin of the
Knickerbocker custom of gentlemen
trailing on their lady friends and
-aking refreshnients, hut it in evi-
iently one of the "fittest," for it is
becoming national.
Its-progress westward and south-
ward can be traced as certainly as
any other social or any political de-
velopmtent, and it seems subject to a
curious law of action and reaction. A
western village or small city takes
up the fashion, and its observanc-
becomes more general tor some time;
then it falls into disuse for a year or
two, only to, revive again with more
style and more general observance.

Final's Cave.
Fingal's cave is one of the most re-,
inarkable natural grottoes in Europe.
ft is situated on the Island of Staffa,
about *even miles off the west coast
of Mull, Scotland. The cavern is
227 feet deep, 42 feet wide at the
entrance and 62 feet high at the
opening at the time of low tide.
Tide has a great deal to do with the
size and dimensions of Fingal's cave,
because it is eminently a sea grotto.
The ocean's waters are always the
floor of the cavern. At time of very
lowest tide there is 20 feet of water
in the cave. It can be readily enter-
ed by means of snall boats at any
time except at the hour of extreme
high tide. In Europe Fingal's cave
i) considered the greatest British
