Why is This Thus?
A baseball went around a curve,
A bat went :n a Str:k<,
A tooth from sheer f! 'ght lost its nerve,
A pike pole lost its pike.
A football raised a mighty kick,
A needle hurt its knee,
A sickle died from being sick,
An eyelet couldn't see.
And once a bulldog barked his .hhin,
A fish weighed. with his scales,
A dinner made an awful din,
A nail keg trimmed its nails.
A tree had just as leaf as not,
A polecat polled its votes,
A garden made a garden plot
To make goatees of goats.
A sidewalk fell and hurt its side,
A coal mine caught a cold,
A chipmunk ate a chip and died,
A bowlder grew more bold.
A crematory made ice cream,
An "houri" told the hours,
All seams are not what they seem,
All bloomers are not flowers.

Notwithstanding the dangers at-
tendant upon railroading on this
winding mountain road, but few ac-
cidents have occurred. At intervals
trains are stopped for the purpose of
testing thi iri iirake., and the ut-
most care is taken to prevent dis-
asters. On the entire thirty-one
miles of road there is not more than
two or three hundred feet of contin-
uous straight track.

The trade relations between the,

ported commodities as all the other

a wonderful cave in Japan:

Was it a jimmy? No, decided the in-

The stranger worked with the turnscrew
for a couple of minutes. Then he went

Extraordinary Kai road into the
Black HIills.
A remarkable piece of engineering
is to be seen on what is known as the
Spearfish blanch of'the great BUirling-
ton Railroaii system in the Black
Hills. over which a Chicago Record
reporter recently traveled. This
branch runs from the little town of
Englewooi, ten miles south of Dead-
wood, in a northwesterly direction, to
the town of Spearfish, a distance of
thirty-one miles. For a greater por-
tion of the distance after leaving
Englewood the road is steep up-grade
the grade being at several points
three and four feet in the hundred,
finally reaching the very sunimit of
the Black Hills, after passing around
innumerable curves of so abrupt a
nature that passengers are led to
wonder how the train can keep the
track, and through numerous cuts
that have been blasted out of the
solid rock.
At one or two of the most danger-
ous places on this remarkable road
safety switches are in use. In de-
scendting the giade, should the train
get beyond control, these switches
will carry it around the points of
mountains and up a steep grade, en-
abling the engineer to regain contr 1
of the train. The roat is ballasted
with broken rock, not evi'n a shovel-
ful of dirt being visible on the entire
roadbed.
The cost of constructing the thirty-
one miles of road was $1,750,000.
The engines in use are 100 ton en-
gines, but, owing to tha steep grades,
they are unable to haul more that:
three loaded ore cars.


ton, Our total exports foi the year
were $1,015,000,000. In 1893 Ent-
land took $421,124,000 out of total
American- exports of $831,000,000.
This is close to the average propor-
tion. Nearly always Great Britain
buys more than half of all our ex-
ports.

The Largest Oak Board.
St. Louis Republic.
The largest oak board ever sawed

was rippled froin the body of a mam-
moth tree which formerly stood near
Scottsburg, Ind. The tree was 27
feet in circuinference, and was said tio
be the largest perfectly round oak
tree in the state. It was purchased
by H. Hermann, the New York lum-
ber dealer, for the sum of $75, and
was cut down and sawed int( boards.
The largest of these boards was 10
inches thick, 5 feet 21 inches wide aL
tlie butt and five feet exactly at the
top. It was 35 feet long, and re-
quired tl e combined strength of two
yoke of oxen nd eight horses a whole
day to move it 1 miles on a 'broad
tread" wagon front the sawmill to the
depot. Lumbermen say that this
was the largest oak board ever sawed


At one point the road makes a in America.


In the aanager's--office in large
wholesale houses there nearly always
hangs a map of territory surrounding
Chicago which is stuck full of pins
with red, blue, green or yellow glass
heads. At first glance there seems
t,1 lh little method in the madness
witii which the piins are placed, but
t, the merchant they are eloquent and
tell exactly the sort of goods orquan-
tity sold in a certain territory. In
leaving out routes for salesmen in
s i:utioins are issued according to tJie
ti tld by the pins, and when a cer-
tainl section remains sparsely settled
with the pins a plan of campaign is
laid out and the drummers areas, nt in
to capture it. Circulars,posters,local
advertimnlents aind every sort of com-
mercial gun is turned on the territory
until it capitulates. So general is
the use of these pins in wholesale
houses that firm makes a business of
supplying them, with other office fix
tures.

ready not only to the opportunities,
but to make them.

"Tear open his collar first," said he,
"and then pull off his wigand theblack

He beld'theo'andle on high.
"Steinwort-h, by all that's good!"
gasped iinspector Bripga as he followed
out Goringe's instruct ions and stared at
the helpless man on the bed.

CHAPTER XXII.
A STRANGE CONFESSION.
It was about a quarter of an hour be-
fore Albert Steinworth had recovered
sufficiently to utter an articulate sound.
In the meantime Goringe had fetched
and lighted the lamp from the dining
room and had drawn down the blinds of
the bedroom window, while Briggs, aft-
er divesting Steinworth of two heavy
overcoats which he wore inside the long
brown surtout, tried to bring the sense-
less man back to life.
When the two officers considered the
young man was sufficiently restored,
they propped him up in an easy chair,
and then placing a small table in front
of him Goringe turned the lamp up to
its full
Steinworth seemed utterly nerveless
as he glanced slowly round the room.
Then making a strong effort to pull him-
self together he muttered, disclosing un-
der his mustachcless lips a set of long,
white, fanglike teeth:
"I see I am trapped. You are very
clever," he added after a brief pause,
glaring at Detective Goringe and ignor-
ing the imposing figure of Inspector,
Briggs. "It was of you I was afraid--
not of the poor creatures in uniform."
"Recollect," said Inspector Briggs,
with dignity, "that whatever you may
say now will be taken down in evidence
against you."
"I belie;.e that is the formula," said
Steinvworth, grinning. "\Why should I
mind what I say to you now? Mr. De-
tective there can tell you all that has
happened. He has discovered the secret
of my little r.:1.1-. It was so simple it


to oe regaroea as a iturere or an aA*
oessory to a murder.
"Yes. I will tell yo all," he said,
With painful deliberateness.
"You will go slow, if you please,"'
said Goringe, "for my friend and I had'
better help each other in taking a note of
the principal part of your statement."
Inspector Briggs sat down at the ta--
ble near Goringe and took out his note-
book. He was a mine of pent tip anger.
Steinworth's contemptuous reference td
him and to the Clayflelds police comr
polled the inspector to be silent, lest it
he did speak his anger might beoomd
volcanic.
"I learned-to begin at the beginning
.-that Mrs. Davorn had taken the momn
ey out of the bank, by an accident-the
accident of my being in the bank and
being close tohter as the cashier was pay-
ing over the notes to her. This was eug-
gested in the coroner's court, as you will
rameme ber"
"One for you, Briggs," said Goringe.
"That was your discovery-or opinion,
shall we call it?"
"An opinion," said the inspector, A
smile curving his lips. I don't aspire
to certainties now."
"Ahl" was Steinworth's only com-
ment as he gazed from the detective to
the inspector. "I was, to put it shortly,
in desperate need of money, and the
sight of Mrs. Davorn holding in hef
hands the bits of paper that would savE
me from hopeless ruinfired me. Besides
I will tell you-though I donot see how
it will help you very much-that I had
some excuse for my greedy fit. I hoped
-and I thought it was no foolish hoped
-that I should have been able to sup4
plant that currish young Dr. Leclerom
whom I loathe--and that, having hin
once out of my way, Miss Rodney would
turn from him to me. I did not know
on Wednesday last that matters had come
to such a pass between them."
"A fact worth noting," said Goringe
to Briggs, observing that the inspector
had ceased to write and was gazing
somewhat stupidly at Steinworth.
"Certainly," said he, setting to work
again.
"Just a moment, Mr. Steinworth."
There was a pause for a few moments,
and then Goringe, lifting his head, nod-
ded at the pale, bedraggled young man
in the armchair.

SHADES OF ITAMT,T'S
FATHER
Are Seen Again in the Pursuit
of Pleasure-This Time They
Direct Their Steps Toward
the Hotel Swan Crest.
On Thursday evening, January 16,
about thirty couples gathered at 'the
Swan Cieat Hotel to participate in a
few hours of innocent recreation in
the form of a social sheet and pillow
case masquerade ball.
As the hands on the dial gradually)
neared the hour of eight, the musi-
cians were summoned, and they
readily responded with elegant music,
furnished by W. R. Wilcox with
violin and Edward Hand with auto-
harp. About five figures were called
while the participants were behind
their hideous masks. At the expi-
ration of which all adjourned to a
splendid repast prepared by tihe
proprietress, sulpplrmented with cake
ani chocolate.
After dancing several more figures
the desire for a le) .ar. dance was
expressed on the part of some, which
was readily responded to.
As the hours began to run into the
early morning all took their depar-
ture, well satisfied with the night's
enjoyment.

Mention has been made in these col-
umns of the new launch the Mess. Do-
ty of this Ilace were having built ex-
pressly for them at St. Joseph, Mich.
Last week the boat arrived by freight
in Pensacola and Messrs, Webster
Doty and J. C. Gwaltney went over
on the Jessie P. to bring it to the
bay. It was takenfrom the cars and
successfully launched and with the
assistance of supposed experts Mr.
Doty proceeded to put the machinery
in motion preparatory to the voyage
here; but despite all their efforts the
machinery refused to work, and at
about 5 o'clock p, m, some one light-
ed a match which ignited the naptha
that had accumulated in the boat
and a flash and incipient explosion
followed; an alarm of fire was turned
in and the department quickly re-
sponded and by turning on a stream
soon extinguished the fire, but not
until the boat and all its appointments
were badly blackened by the heat
and smoke, but the extent of the

the manufactory Saturday morning,
and it is to be hoped an examination
will prove that the boat is not ruined
by the casualty. The lbix was prob-
ably the most beautiful boat ever in-
tended for these waters, and every
one will regret the accident, both on
account of the loss to the owners, and
the improvement it would have been
to the nmaratime acquipment of St.
Andrews Bay.

We Have Been Judged Arig'ht.
We thank all our St. Andrews,
friends who have given us such a
substantial surprise and so much
sympathy, and turned our sighs into
smiles by presenting us with welcom-
ed provisions and money. Their
mission was a pleasant success and is
gratefully appreciated by us both,
Mrs. Pettis had placed in Mr. G. W.
Surber's wagon forty packages and
they came to our house free of charge.
Miss Lillie Pettis handed us $6.75 in
cash, and to the end of our time we
shall remember this great and kind


act, and to all we send our heartfelt
thanks.
May you be reward l as your
kindness deserves, is the wish of

"I was troubled with heart disease
for six years, severe palpitations, short-
ness of breath, together with such ex-
treme nervousness, that. at times I would
walk the floor nearly all night. We
consulted the best medical talent.
They said there was no help for me,
that I had organic disease of the heart for
which there was no remedy. I had read
your advertisement in The Graphic and
a year ago, as a last resort, tried one bottle of
Dr. Miles' New Cure for the Heart,
which convinced me that there was true
merit in it. I took three bottles each of the
Heart Cure and Restorative Nervine and
Xt completely cured me. I sleep
well at night, my heart beats regularly and
I have no more smothering spells. I wish
to say to all who are suffering as I did;
there's relief untold for them if they will
only give your remedies just one trial."

the ground is well seeded. Better to
mark off spaces with a stick about four
feet wide. Sow with thumb and two
fingers, when no wind is blowing, and
leave a little to sow across the other
way, to insure uniform stand. Don't
rake the seed in, as some will be too
deep, but rather use a long stiff switch
and sweep lightly, and then with a pair
of quickly extemporized snow shoes
(made by nailing a strap for the foot on
a piece of board 10 by 12 inches), tramp
the bed over evenly. Leave the margin
slightly raise, to run off surplus water.
For protection from frosts, cold winds,
flea beetles,etc., it is safer to cover with
thin, cheap cotton cloth. This also se-
cuers greater uniformity of moisture
and temperature. While a covering of
straight, leafless brush may suffice, the
canvas is far better, for it will insure
earlier plants. But the canvas must be
removed at least ten days or more be-
fore the time of transplanting, other-
wise the plants would be too tender.
Always aim to have twice as many
plants as you need.

REPORT
Of the Board of Public Inittuction for the Month Ending
December 31, 1895.


Tobacco Seed.
The BUOY has at considerable ex-
pense secured a quantity of genuine
Havana Tobacco seed to distribute
among its patrons, and a package will
be given gratis to every new or old sub-
scriber who is not in arrears for sub-
scription who wishes it. Those wishing
the seed sent by mail must send 2-cent
stamp to pay postage on same. The
unsettled condition of affairs in Cuba
makes the present Florida's opportun-
ity for producing a staple crop that will
command the cash at a fair price at
any time if it is properly grown and
prepared, and it has been proven that
when so grown and cared for Florida
tobacco cannot be distinguished from
that grown in Cuba. As our supply is
somewhat limited, and the time is at
hand when the seed should be planted,
no time should be lost in securing and
planting the seed.

The following from the Times-Union
gives full instructions how to plant the
seed for
RAISING TOBACCO PLANTS.
Prof. F. B. Moodie, of Lake City, has
long been known as one of the most re-
liable authorities and instructive writers
on tobacco growing in Florida. His
latest treatise on the subject is styled
"Bulletin No. 30," of the "Florida Ex-
periment Station" (a specimen of the
easy subterfuges by which that institu-
tion is enabled to draw $15,000 a year
from the national treasury.) The re-
marks on distinguishing perfect from
imperfect seed, on the time for sowing
and on the location and preparation of
seed-beds, being of timely interest, are
here reproduced, as follows:
Put a few seed on a clean, hot tin or
stove, when, if the seed are dead, they
will quickly burn black, otherwise they
will remonstrate by an apparent endeav-
or to jump off. If, however, only a few
complain of the intense heat, double the
quantity to be sown on the bed. But
better get fresh seed.
In the northern counties of Florida
sow the first beds from the 1st to the
10th of January. Then sow one or more
beds every week or two until the last of
February, to insure a sufficiency for a
large crop. It is not safe to rely on one
seed-bed. Farther south seed may be
sown earlier, the object being to trans-
plant just as soon as danger of late
spring frosts is past; for tobacco, like
tomatoes or other vegetables, should be
in the field as soon as safe from frost.
TOBACCO SEED-BEDS.
Select a rich, moist place, near as
possible to water and if sloping to the
south the better; not one much shad-
ed-must have sunlight. Onthenature
of the seed-bed soil depends the nature
and worth of the plants. It must be
borne in mind that foliage and not fruit
is the objective crop. If seed are sown
in very light, sandy loam, dry and
thirsty, the roots will descend deep into
the ground for moisture, and there will
be no surface lateral rootlets. but only
a large taproot, with a very few brach-
es, On such a plant the leaves will be
short and very far apart, lige a mullein
stalk. Whereas, the seed sown on
moist and closely compacted land will
produce stocky seedlings, with abund-
ant surface rootlets, whieh will devel-
op en umgrageous, spreading plant,
with abundant and more valuable
fuligae. I must admit that have learn-
ed this important fact after fdry years'
observation.
Virgin soil is better for the'seed-bed
than old land, unless the old land has
been well mulched the previous summer
thereby destroying much of the seed of
grass and weeds, which is the chief ob-
ject of burning the ground. Through
mulching also restores measurably the
virgin properties to old soil.
It is important to burn the seed-bed
well, in the following manner: Rake
off leaves and trash, lay green poles
four to six feet apart, pile on brush
uniformly for kindling, if you have it
convenient. Then throw on heavy
sticks of wood at right angles, with old
rails or dry wood between, across the

the margin by a small ditch to carry off
surplus rain.

companied by frightful dreams and are
al ays distressing to a degree, caused

troubles as

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.

ORGANIZED JANUARY. 9, 1892.

The purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources Ps a Fruit-Growing Country.
Tu 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.
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 entrubstcd to its kCelpiig. guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for darm.tges fruin any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful entitrate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price oflana per acr*., say $25 to $50; cost of clearing,. s; O $20; *ost of planting 1st
year, say $ 31; c.,t oft1ulti i.ion each year thereafter, *.-l

Starting an Orchard.
The ground for at orchard should
be well and deeply cultivated, and free
from weeds, well drained, if the soil
requires it, and most soils are better
for draining, except sandy or light
gravelly soils with a light subsoil.
Such .lnd may not require draining,
but in eveiy case it should be well
worked and pulverized ard enriched
before planting. The work of pre-
paration must be done during the
summer, so as to be ready for fall or
spring planting. Planting in the
spring is preferred,which will enable
the trees to take firm hold of the
earth and to resist the frost of next
winter, but planting may be done
successfully in the autumn by pro-
tecting tee tfeeP so as to present the
frost from heaving or misplacing
them.
Select young, healthy and vigirous
trees, and from a reliable nurs-
eryman, and if possible from a soil
similar to that in which you intend
to plant your orchard. The differ-
ent kinds of apples will depend upon
your own choie and the suitability
of soil and climate. .1 should advise
that the selection be made from the
old, tried and reliable kinds.
The distance apart should not be
less than thirty feet, so as to allow
the trees room to spread from a low
and spreading head. Close planting
has a tendency to force the trees to
run up, and preventing the fruit from
obtaining its proper coloring from the
sun,and making it more difficult to
gather the fruit. At this distance of
thirty feet apart it will require
twenty-nine trees to the ac'e. Be-
fore planting the tree, remove all
bruised and broken roots by cutting
clean with a sharp knife. Lay out
your ground in straight lines, so that
yur trees will be in line each way
and at equal distarces, thirty feet
apart.
A New Way of Paying One's
Debts.
Liverpool Mercury.
"Now, sir," said the shoemaker,
"pay me my bill or I shall lose my
temper. I have waited long enough."
"My good man," the debtor replied,
"I have nomoney, but I will give you
an order on Mr. H., who has been in
my debt forever o long. Here, take
this sealed packet, but don't let him
perceive that oou know anything of
it.- content.?." .
The shniemaiker, in great glee, be-
took himself to Mr. H., and handed
him the missive, which ran as fol-
lows:
