You who judge by what you see,

In the azure, one by one.
So the daylight of a smile
May but veil the human face
Hiding for a little while
Doubt and care and sorrow's trace;
So, when shadow clouds of woe
O'er a happy face arise,
Still beneath the shadows glow
Stars of joy in gentle eyes.
Life is arched with changing skies,
Rarely are they what they seem;
Smiles we have, and also sighs-
Much we know, but more we dream;
Look beneaththe outward show,
To the shadow or the light,
Ana from what you surely know
Learn to see and jndge aright.

of those fearful opinions. You fancy

come the next time with a key to open
the lock of this door."
"That is my very humble opinion.

"Matran of a Benevolent Home
and knowing the good Dr. Miles' Nervine
has done me, my wish to help others, over-
comes my dislike for the publicity, this
letter may give me. In Nov. and Dec., 1893,
The inmates had the "'LaGripr e,"
and I was one of the first. Resuming duty
too soon, with the care of so many sick, I
did not regain nly health, and in a month
I became so debilitated and nervous
from sleeplessness and the drafts made on
my vitality, that it was a question if I could
go on. A dear friend advised me to try
Dr. Miles' Besforative Nervine.
I took 2 bottles and am happy to say, I am
tn better health than ever. I still continue
Its occasional wse, as a nerve food,
as my work is very trying. A letter ad-
dressed to Milwaukee, Wis., will reach me."

1y'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 abs,rhbed and gives relief at
once. The results that follow caiarrh,
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 PINOLA BALSAM will be found ex-
cellent for all throat and lung inflamma-
mations and for
sumptives will in-
w variably derive
t benefit' from its
Suse, as it quickly
abates the cough,
renders the ex-
.N pectoration easy,
in restoring wast-
ed tissues. There is a large percentage
of those who suppose their cases to be

a chronic cold or deep-seated cough, often

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 a:l. ,t,'.d, 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,"
"NQ-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
our 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.

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.
Tv 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*Fcpces 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.
As TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to make improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show 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 iana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; ost of planting Isl
year, say $301: :j-ot ot'rf cltivation each year thereafter, $20
It is not oxtravagnrt t" -ti, -.i- th.I- 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
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable nearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japan chestnuts, pecans, and many other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered 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-
awer all questions asked it.
R EM E M BE R, the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Yayment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. C ORRESPONDEN C E SOLICITED.

The Coming Railroad Engine.
"The railroad engine of the future
will be a very different machine fr' m
those now in use," said T. C. Wil-
loughby. "In the first place, it will
be so arranged that it will run in a
vacuum by means of air pumps. It
will be of torpedo shape, in order to
offer the least possible air resistance,
and the air which goes into the pumps
will be utilized as an additional mo-
tive power to that obtained from the
steam or electricity used. Such an
engine could be constructed to make
at least 200 miles an hour and would
wear longer than any now used, for
the reason that friction would be re-
minced to a minimum. A combina-
tion of the principles of the preheilnt
locomotive and of the Pennoyer air-
ship would result. in a revolution in
the mechanical world. I am nut an
inventor, but I know that such a
machine is feasible and will some day

WHAT A PROMINENT SILVERITE'S

Prescriptions of Diffe9ent Ratios to.Be
Continued During Life of Patient.
Governor Stone of Missouri is an ar-
dent advocate of cheap dollars and de-
nounces all who favor our present finan-
cial system as being guilty of "unre-
lenting hostility to silver." In a speech
at Sedalia, Mo., he declared in favor of
the immediate opening of the United
States mints to the.free coinage of sil-
ver at 16 to 1 and said: "If after a fair
trial it is demonstrated that we cannot
on that ratio maintain both metals in

and selows clearly the lack of any well
defined principle in the 50 cent dollar

Stone to say that his plan of establish-

the weight of the gold unit would mean
a debasement of the currency similar to
increasing the quantity of cheap metal
used as alloy in coins.
It cannot be too often pointed out that
in their last analysis all cheap money
schemes, and especially the free coinage
of silver, involve positive dishonesty
oin tieo part of the government. Goods
having been sold, capital loaned or con-
tracts for payment of wages made or a
standard of value established by con-
gress it is coolly proposed that the value
of goods, capital or wages shall be cut
down by d .. :ia: the measure of val-
ues. Such action might be popular with
some creditors and employees, who
would be atle to escape from a part of
their obliga ions. But every principle of
common honesty and justice would
stamp legislation for that purpose as
fraudnliet :ud opposed to the best inter-
ests in the Ling run of debtors as well
as creditors. Civilized societies have
long lpa~.ed the stage when it was
thought ju t and expedient to repudiate
Governor Stone's alternative proposi-
tion to increase the amount of silver in
tho "dollar" is not open to the charge
of dishonesty if he means that the coins
should contain as much silver as would
be worth a gold dollar. But if this plan
i,- honest it is also 'absurd and would be
er.tireiy uusnilte(i to t-l'e ilt d. Oef a great
coUnnicorcial nation Ike tlhe United
btate:is. Our present silver dollar is too
bulky and inconvenient for general use.
A coin twice as large, as a dollar worth
its.face as bullion would necessarily be,
would not be used at all. Besides the
continually changing value of silver,
owing to incrCased or decreased produc-
tion or consumption, would require its
constant recoining at great expense in
order to adjust the coin value to the
commercial vulue. There is no need of
such a coin, and as neither silverites nor
sound money advocates want it its dis-
advantage need not be seriously discuss-
ed. The Ajme; ican people want neither
11 3-5 grains gold dollars or 742
grains silver (idolars, and agitators for
either are merely disturbing business to
no purpose. Neither do they wish to
risk the great dangers of experimenting
with different ratios unless it is abso-
lutely certain that they will be benefit-
ed by the change.
Result Wouid Be Disaster.
The Richmond Dispatch (Dem.),
which favors international bimetallism,
declares that unlimitedd free coinage
at a ratio of 16 to 1 of all the silver
which would under~ the operation of such
a ratio be carried to the mints for re-
coinage would result in universal disas-
