And so forcibly realizing this con-
spicous fact, the BUOY beleives it to be
its duty to make short auxilary
There are, confronting the demo-
crats of the state at large, four promi-
nent and exhalted positions, to which
that party must select suitable men as
occupants; those offices are, that of
Governor, Attorney-General United
States Senator and Representative to

there are others, but these are the four
in which the most responsibility lies,
so tothem should be paid particular
The nomination of Governor is vir-
tually conceded to Hon. W. D. Blox-
ham, a gentleman who will grace that
honor with a dignity which will reflect
pride upon the party. The next named
is that of Attorney-General. This posi-
tion is one in which all people anc.
voters who expect any legal proceed
ure are supremely interested, and
must consequently be filled by one
who knows and can exercise legaldis-
cretion. The gentleman to whom
the BUoY has made frequent refer-
ance, Chas. A. Choate, of Jackson-
ville, is, be it said with the utmost
veracity, the most fitted to fill that
position, of any one whose name has
appeared before the public gaze; hav-
ing had an experience of twenty years of
legal practice, and severalyears spent in
journalism, his ability cannot be ques-
tioned, and as far as private record is
concerned, none could say ought to
impgun him.
The election of U. S. Senator is
merely a fight between the people's
best interests, headed by Hon. W. D.
Chipley, and the kicking and object-
ing element, led on by a wild extremist
who has for some .years past dis-
graced Florida's intelligence by rep-
resenting her in that body, and that
individual's name is Wilkinson Call of
Jacksonville. So, little need be said
regarding it, merely rely upon the
common wisdom of the people, who
are, as whole intelligent.
The office of Member of the House
of Representative will probably fail to

Sparkman, at least all democrats trust
that it may.
Attention, moreover should be paid
to the instruction of delegates on the
financial question, to which the BUOY
has devoted columns for its ellucida-

As a sequence attention is at once
directed toward Hon. W. D. Chipley
of Pensacola as the logical candidate
and by the indications now manifest
he will have no opposition other than
that which naturally arises as the re-
sult of some personal friendship to
another would-be candidate.
Col. Chiple)'s election is assured
and his few opponents may as well
accept the ultimatum gracefully ar.d

As the time draws near for the
state convention to c nvene at Ocala,
all those who are interested in any
particular nomination look forward
with suspense; and more especially
do the voters and friends ot Chas. A
Choate anticipate the approaching

fore the convention at Ocala on the 16th,
and that individual is no other than Mr.
So Mr. Fisher may as well content
himself with his legal practice at Green
Cove Springs and throw what little fol-
lowing he has to the nomination of
Choate and be content to see him the
choice of the convention and successful

The statement has been given out
by some friend and close official asso-

effect that, if he were to be tendered
the nomination at the Chicago con-

ducement strong enough could be
brought to bear upon him to induce
him to alter his mind.

'"Tere wasn't much amiss with the
last shot, let be how 'twill," said the
skipper. "There were a gunner invalid-
ed to the fort from Brest a week or two
back, and sure they won't be leaving
the like of him behind this day. Heave
her to, Ben."
"And now, Mr. Curtis," the skipper
continued as his order was sullenly
obeyed. "Now, 'tis for you to take com-
mand and get us out of the bogglement.
You be on secret service for the repub-
lic, I'm thinking, and you put to sea
this way for fear of spies, and you'll
want to know which of 'em it is has
taken Pitt's gold to stop 'ee. And as for
the lady and the young gentleman"-
"They must not be seen, "interrupted
Curtis. "I have arranged for them.
Have the goodness to get the heads
knocked out of those two casks. They
must come and hide there You will
tell them so."
While the hiding places were being
prepared with a briskness that contrast-
ed sharply with the way the lugger had
been hove to, the skipper, not a little
uneasy at being taken so promptly at
his word by Curtis, went back to the
cuddy. Lucile was sitting beside a bunk
on which her brother lay and holding
her hand.
"What was the matter?" she asked as
soon as the skipper appeared.
"Everything's the matter, miss," an-
swered Dunk lugubriously; "the fog's
the matter, for 'tis cleared; and the
guardboat's the matter; 'twill board us
in a quarter of an hour."
"Board us I" exclaimed Aymon, start-
ing up on his elbow. "My God I what
will become of me? Why don't you run?"
"Ask the wind, sir," answered the
skipper; 'tain't tobe done."
"What will become of me?" criedAy-
mon, sinking back on his pillow, while
Lucile bit her lip that Dunk should see
him so abject
"Take heart, sir, take heart," said
the skipper, resuming his natural cheer-
iness; "there's no call tobe afeard; we
be going to hide ye both i' the new wa-
ter casks."
"Hide '" cried Lucile, risia.. "No1 I
have b* Ld enough cf &ab --Z h4l6 no
more. '
"Them be Mr. Curtis' orders," said
"We aren't under Mr. Curtis'orders,"
she answered.
"Fegs, miss I You may besaying that
now,"' said the skipper, shaking his head
in sage resignation, "but you will be-
sooner or later."
She flushed up with indignation and
stared at the skipper with set lips.
"Massy, miss," he went on in his
coaxing tone, "I know young leddies
should have their way-a deal of it, too,
when they're handsome ones, like you,
my lady-but just this once I'm think-
ing 'tis better to do 'cording as he says;
'tis no more than we be all doing this
"Tell the gentleman," said Lucile in
a firm voice, "I will not hide."
She was resolved to make a stand
against his domination. "Under his or-
ders-sooner or later." The idea was
already haunting her.
"Why will you be so proud, Lucile?"
whined Aymon. 'Tis madness to think
of resistance. You must come out and
hide as the man says He knows best."
So it had to be done. She came out
with a brave attempt to save her dig-
nity, holding herself erect and returning
Curtis' reverential bow with a proud in-
clination of her head.
"I must ask you to stoop," said Cur-
tis, "as you go forward, lest they see
you from the gnardboat."
"Do you hear?" cried Aymon, as she
gave no heed to what the lieutenant had
said. "We must stoop."
Before she could think of any escape
they were crawling together along the
deck, under the shelter of the low bul-
warks, Curtis following them, erect. It
was a little help to kneel on the deck
beside her brother, and dispose him easi-
ly. It was at least a saving of dignity
to be the last to hide.
But that only made it worse, for when
the men had pushed the open end of the
cask close against the forward bulkhead

At first the altercation that ensued
was so sharp that, from where she lay,
Lucile could not tell how the thing was
going, but presently it was plain that
the commander of the shallop was be-
ing cowed into a sullen explanation of
his conduct, and when it came to acous-
ing Ourtis of abetting the flight of aris-
tocrats he burst out again, daring the
man to make such a charge ashore, and
embroidering his defiance with patriotic
sentiments of the most florid revolution-
ary patterns.
She could not but warm a little to
him for his fine resistance, though its
very brilliance made her chafe the more
that his was all the action and hers to
skulk and be protected.
And then came a new smart of anxi-
ety. For, in spite of all he could do, the
men in the shallop doggedly insisted on
a search, and when she heard them
climbing into the lugger a dread seized
her that Aymon would betray himself
with a fit of coughing.
"Search then if you will," were Cur-
tis' last words. "But remember you are
searching a vessel on secret service. Do
it at your peril, and wait for what comes
down from Brest when I report it."
"But why did yon gooff so secretly?"
some one asked.
"I have told you," wasCurtis' reply,
and indeed he had said all that Dunk
had suggested, and a great deal more I
besides, so as to make his stealthy em-
barkation appear plausible enough.
"Yes," said another, "that is very
well But there were more tracks in the
sand than yours. You don't persuade us
you were alone."
"We were not alone," answered Cur-
tis. "Two strangers were there, who
begged a passage, and Captain Dunk re-
fused to take them," which was true,
though scarcely the whole truth.
"Well, we will see," was the dogged
answer, and now all was silent except
for the tramp of feet up and down the
deck, the opening and shutting of the
cuddy door and of such lockers as were
large enough to deserve the p Tey

into the forecastle.
Having rummaged there for l
they came out and stood muttering to-
gether in low tones. With a thrillof
joy she heard them resolve to be gane,
when, as it were in an idle gesture, one
of them kicked the barrel in which she
lay. Her heart stood still, for, hearing
the hollowness of the spund, the man
cried out, "What's in here, captain?"
If she could have seen urtis' face at
that moment, perhaps she would have
changed toward him then and there, but
all she knew was that something flashed
through the bunghole and her arm was
transfixed with the thin blade of a small
sword. It pinned her to the staves with
a sharp score of pain, but her only idea
was to make no sound or movement.
The steel was not immediately with-
drawn, and the reason was plain.
"What is that pistol for?" a voice
cried out.
The reply came from Curtis "If you
draw your weapon, friend," he said
carelessly, "I draw mine."
Had the man been a moment less
quick in probing the barrel there is no
oubt he never would have done it. The
crack of Curtis' pistol would have given
the signal for a fight, the end of which
must have been the end of all

time to think that her blood on the
sword would betray them, and when in
another moment it was withdrawn the
blade was bright and clean as it came
from the scabbard.
"Now go!" cried Curtis in his most
compelling tones. "Youhave done your
And the men from the shallop, being
broken in spirit by their failure, obeyed,
as it were, mechanically. With no more
ado they re-embarked, and with a sulky
"Godspeed I" headed for the harbor.
During the search the breeze had some-
what freshened, so that as soon as the
Content filled again on her old tack she
drew rapidly away from the shallop.
It was well she did, for Curtis, brrst-

ing with impatience, could hardly wait
till a safe interval was between the two
boats, before he dashed at Lucile's hid-
ing place and out it loose with his jack-
knife. With careful haste he slewed the
cask round, and then-there she was dis-
played in her beauty, lying still and
senseless and stained with blood.
It was more than he could do to hold
back a cry at the sight. Straightway he
fell gn his knees and began to draw her
forth. The skipper, little less distressed
than himself, came to his aid, and the
two men, with awkward gentleness, sat
her up against the bulkhead. The blood
burst out again in a new flow, and she
opened her eyes.
They fell at once on Curtis, but 6
without resentment. He was opening[
his knife again, and she watched him
while he ripped up her sleeve to search
for the wound. The hands had gathered
in groups near by, and the color came
back faintly to her cheeks when she saw
her arm bare to the shoulder. But still
she watched Curtis dreamily. He was
tearing his handkerchief into strips.
"I fainted," she murmured.
"And small wonder, my lady, "cooed
the skipper. "Bide still awhile, my
dear, and we'll set 'eo to rights. The

with the pain, and at that the lieuten-
ant flushed and twitehed like a nervous
child, and the perspiration was in beads
upon his face.
"How was it, honey?" said ti1i Alkip
per, to dra* her attention, while the
lieutenant, in an igony, forced himself
to wind the bandage firm. "Therewasn't
no blood on the sword."
A smile that was full of a kind ao
triumph played on her lips as she ad-
'I wiped it," sie siid, "ashe drew

She lifted a corner of her dress as shd
spoke, still smiling. It was cat and

CARRABELLE, FLA., May 25, 96.
DEAR Buoy: Iwrite to let you know
that Carrabelle is still here and
things are running as usual.
In midwinter there were twenty-
four large vessels in port as against
nine at the pe pre"it time. This ir
pAUrly dA... t t -f vramast
load now and get out more quickly.
'The mills are now running at full
capacity, while they yet have a good
quantity of lumber on hand and the
town about holds its own-some go
and some come, and it is a curiosity
how so much business is transacted
on so little money; still we are trying
to enjoy ourselves,and occasionally at
excursion goes out to the Red Snap-
per Bahks. which are near by, and
the catch of late, has been quite sat-
isfactory. :
Nor does there appear to be "any
flies on the colored- folks," either, for
on the 20th, which yon know wa'"
Emacipation day, they came out in
regalia. A party of them went upl
the river onuthe Hill. By explana-
tion, I would say that our Hill here
is not one of the black cones of the
earth, but on tli contrary is a steam-
er which runs in Ilhe water, and id
owned an.l c,niiniiintded by Capt.
Yent. Well, whleni those American
citizens of Afiican decent started up"
on the Hill they had a number of
bottles full of emancipation; but,
when they g,,t back they were full1
themselves. In fact, the steward of
the boat gi t so lull of emancipation'
that he lodged all night in the bat
cave, coler, sweat-box or whatever
you are pleased to call it, presided
over by the marshal of the' town.
So you see if Carrabelle is not in
civilization it is in the borders thereof.
Perhaps some of the friends may
like to know about my book on "*Ear-
ly Life and Adventures in the moun-

tains." Therefore I would say that,
after corresponding with twenty ptby-
lishing houses, I found one-Harper
Brothers of New York-who conde-
scended "to submit it to their reader'
with a view to publication." bSo' it.
is now in the critic's hands; no do I
know if those old stories will pars
muster while so many n'w things are'
offered in this fast day and dage. So'
I will not subscribe ifyseit an autho'v
with a big A, but Wilt make it very'
small until we hear farthet.
As for the money question; tee are
glad to get hold of any kind of money
n Cartabelle, and never stop to ask
iwhethet a dollar has one hnndred
cent% worth of rawv material iff it of
not-of gold of silver or of paper.
The only question we ask is, will it
buy one hundred events worth ot
goods or liquidate that match debt.
With the best wiKlhs amimrkhindest
regards to all the friends I am
Yours truly, v J, 1V: 'ss.

to attend the tax sale at Vernon on July
6, and should any of its patrons feel in-
clined to bid in any of the property of-

tend to the matter, and charge only a
few cents to each to help defray expen-
ses, provided funds are placed in his
hands to make the purchases.
The Farmdale and Wetappo tele-
phone outfit has arrived, and as will
be seen elsewhere a meeting of the
directors is called at Farmdale for to-
morrow the 5th inst., when steps will
be taken for the immediate erection
of the line. The BUOY is advised that
arrangements to extend the service to
Cromanton are progressing and an
effort will be made to induce the eiti-
zens on the north side of the Bay to
get a crossing at Ferry Point and con-
neot Parker Pittsburg and St. An-
drews with the line. The first ex-
pense having been met, ihe cost of
extension will be comparatively small,
and the BUOY seconds the motion for
extension .
-Mistakes will sometimes occur and
while the utmost care has been taken
both by the BUOY and the tax collector
to have the delinquent tax list absolutely
correct, it is just possible that an occa-
sional error may have escaped correc-
tion and every owner of property should
examine the list carefully and compare
his deeds with the descriptions and if
any property is advertised upon which
taxes for 1895 have been paid and a re-
ceipt is held, the fact should be reported
at once to the tax collector or to the
BUoy and the same will be stricken
from the sale sheet. A little prompt
attention to this atter will prevent any
unpleasant consequences resulting from
the sale.


The iron grasp of scrofula has no
mercy upon its victims. This demon
of the blood is often not satisfied with
causing dreadful sores, but racks the
body with the pains of rheumatism
until Hood's Sarsaparilla cures.
"Nearly four years ago I became af-
flicted with scrofula and rheumatism.

Running sores broke out on my thighs.
Pieces of bone came out and an operation
was contemplated. I had rheumatism in
my legs, drawn up out of shape. I lost ap-
petite, could not sleep. I was a perfect
wreck. I continued to grow worse and
finally gave up the doctor's treatment to

take Hood's Barsaparilla. Soon appetite
came back; the sores commenced to heal.
My limbs straightened out and I threw
away my crutches. I am now stout and
hearty and am farming, whereas four
years ago I was a cripple. I gladly rec-
ommend Hood's Sarsaparilla." URBAN

of live oaks and overlooking the waters
of the bay, Mr. Sheppard has, with his
own hands built, finished and furnished
a model establishment, with nothing
particularly grand, but everything ar-
rangedwith an eye to convenience and
comfort. IEis large library is so arrang-
ed that any book can be referred to with-
outtrouble or delay; the office desk is
provided with plenty of pigeon holes to
preserve papers and prevent confusion;
comfortable seats and couches are ar-
ranged both for himself and his guests;
but perhaps the most interesting among
the appointments of the office are the
decorations adorning the walls. While
in active service Lt. Sheppard visited
many of the noted places of the world,
and numberless sketches were execut-

arranged as to be constant reminders of
the scenes they portray, while dozens of

Ready to Break Party Tios to Vote Against
Free Coinage-They Form a Large Per-
centage of the Voters of This Country.
Mr. Gustav H. Schwab is president
of the German society of New York
city and is therefore in touch with
Germans and German-Americans in this
country. Being also a prominent bus
iness man, he is familiar with the views
of Germans on the financial question. In
an interview on May 14 he said:
I am convinced from my knowledge
of my German-American fellow citi-
zens and their ways of thinking that
the vast majority of them in the coming
political contest will entirely disregard
party ties and will vote for that party
which declares for the maintenance, be-
yond a possibility of doubt, of the gold
standard of value, and that they will
not give their suffrage to any candidate
who may be suspected of a leaning to-
ward free silver coinage or toward any
compromise with the silver people.
They consider that the paramount
question before the country at present is
the integrity of our monetary system,
and their votes will go to that party
which they believe will uphold the
country's financial honor, regardless of
what their views may be on other polit-
ical questions. Previous experience has
shown that German voters on questions
relating to or affecting the standard of
value have always stood for common
honesty, and that they have uniformly
opposed all forms of financial heresy.
When, 20 years ago, the paper money
inflation question was agitated in Mis-
souri, the Germans of that state were
arrayed on the side of sound money.
The Germans of Illinois are on record
as always having been on the right side
of the money question, and as never
having been led astray by cheap money
propaganda at any time. A German
business man, cashier of a large bank in
Chicago, who has a wide acquaintance
with the small bankers and merchants
throughout the west, tells me that he
has had occasion to hear expressions
from his German countrymen for years
past on the question of a monetary
standard, and that he has never yet
found one who was not in favor of the
gold standard and opposed to the free
coinage of silver.
His opinion is that the German citi-
zens of Illinois are unanimously opposed
to any impairment of the present gold
It is a fact, universally known, that
the sound money victory in Ohio in the
gubernatorial campaign of 1875, in
which Rutherford B. Hayes ran on a
Republican hard money platform
against William Allen on a Democratic
paper money inflation platform, was
due to the firm stand taken by the Ger-
mans, who, disregarding party-lines,
turned the scale in the election in favor
of honest money. This fact was conced-
ed at the time by the Republican press
of the state, and the Democratic candi-
date voiced the sentiments of his party
leaders when he gave utterance to his
lacerated feelings after the election by
exclaimin, ''The Dutch are d--d un-
,reliable. The Gprnani vote are cer-
tainly no4 to be relied upon when they
are ask'd to prostitute the country's
financial honor at their party's bidding.
In the state of Wisconsin the Germans
have taken the same united stand in
favor of sound money, and the same
may be said of Michigan, Iowa and
The entire German newspaper press in
this country, with few exceptions, is
emphatically for sound money, as it has
been in the past, and can be depended
upon to pronounce in favor of the main-
tenance of the present standard of value
and for the party that represents this
principle, regardless of previous party
affiliations. Several important German
Democratic papers in the western states
have already threatened to bolt their
ticket if a free silver plank should be
adopted. As an indication of the gen-
eral sentiment of the German press I
refer to the position taken by the largest
and oldest German newspaper in the
south, The Demokrat of Louisville, in
the last state election in Kentucky. Al-
though always Democratic up to that
time, this paper bolted the Democratic
free silver candidate and urged the elec-
tion of the Republican sound money can-
didate for governor.
The importance of the German vote
will be apparent when the numerical
strength of the German-American popu-
lation in the pivotal states is consider-
ed. The returns of the census of 1890
show that tho state of New York then
contained 912,603 German-Americans,
Ohio 541,4C7, Illinois 690,588, Penn-
sylvania 472,423, Michigan 276,258,

Wisconsin 531,834, Minnesota 244,684,
Iowa 269,603 and Missouri 297,095.
Whatever may be the decision of the
national conventions on the money ques-
tion, this issue will be fairly, squarely
and most thoroughly placed before the
German voter in the course of the cam-
paign, and as to the nature of his re-
sponse I do not entertain any d ubt.
The Tall Too Small to Wag the Dog.
The total population of the silver
mining communities, including all those
who are directly or indirectly dependent
on silver money for a living, cannot ex-
ceed 700,000. Why should the interests
of the 70,000,000 people of the United
States be sacrificed to the supposed in-
terests of this small fraction of their
number? Isn't it a pretty insignificant
tail to wag such a stupendous dog?-St.
Paul Pioneer Press.
Willing to Correct Mistakes.
About the only argument the free sil-
ver papers offer in advocating the is-
suance of fiat money is that Secretary
Carlisle and The Courier-Journal have
changed their views on the money ques-
tion. To their credit, be it said, The
Courier-Journal and Secretary Carlisle
argue the question.-Lexington (Ky.)
California Must Remain a Gold State.
California was a gold state when it
was admitted and has remained a gold
state since. None of its debtors has
anything to gain by a radical change of
standard, not even the banks, which,
under a silver standard, would be able
to pay all depositors 50 cents on the dol-
lar. The derangement of business and
temporary destruction of credit that
would result from such a change would
probably break most of the banks in

must Consider the German Vote.
It may be in this crisis that the Ger-
mais will play a specially important
role. In the east they are altogether
sound upon the silver question, and in
the west the preponderance of German
sentiment is sound. If the conventions
perceive that they will have to reckon
with the German vote, the influence of

& Free Silver Kindergarten Lesson For
the Benefit of Those Who Need It.
What is it makes some people poor?
The crime of 1873.
How did that "crime" cause poverty?
By striking down one-half of the mon-
ey of the country.
How much silver money was there in
the United States in 1873?
Less than $80,000, 000.
How much have we now?
Six hundred and twenty-five million
Does this increase of about $550,000,-
000 look like a reduction in the volume
of our silver money?
So Senator Stewart says.
What causes floods, cyclones, droughts,
weevil, bollworms, grasshoppers, go-
phers and other evils which injure the
farmers' and planters' crops?
The gold standard.
What will make the cows give more
milk, the sheep grow more wool, the
hogs weigh twice as much and the hens
lay bigger eggs?
The silver standard.
Name some of the silver standard
China, India and Mexico.
Are the people of those countries more
prosperous than the American farmers
and workers?
No; they are a great deal poorer.
Why has not their silver money made
those countries rich?.
Ask something easier.
If there are more poor people in silver
standard countries than in gold using
nations, how would free coinage of 50
cent dollars abolish poverty in the Unit-
ed States?
That is one of the things that nobody
can find out.
Silver and the Fall In Prices.
The Philadelphia American, a paper
published in a sound money city, but
devoted to the cause of free coinage, re-
peats, in a recent issue, the stale old as-
sertion that it is the adoption of the gold
standard which has caused such a mark-
ed decline.in prices. Without going into
the general question of the effect which
the quantity of money in a country has
on the prices of goods, it is only needful
to point to the fact that prices have fall-
en just the same in countries on a silver
basis as in those using gold. Wheat is
cheaper in America than it was some
years ago. It is also cheaper in India
and Russia, both silver standard coun-
tries-in fact, it is largely the competi-
tion of their low priced wheat which has
brought down the price of American
Can The American explain why the
cheap silver of Russia and India has not
kept up prices in those countries? If
using more silver would benefit our
farmers by giving them higher prices,
why has it not done so where silver is
the only money used? How can we ex-
pect that a bushel of wheat will buy
more goods,if measured by silver dollars,
when it is found that in countries which
have always had the silver standard
wheat brings no more than in America?

These are questions which the be-
lievers in sound money have been asking
ever since the present agitation for free
coinage was started. Is it not about time
that the silverites tried to answer them?

Dangers of the Compartment Car.
The beauties of the compartment car
plan are illustrated by the following oc-
currence to an excursion train in
France: "After passing Amiens it was
noticed that the roof of a compartment
containing nine passengers was on fire.
The passengers tried to draw the atten-
tion of the driver and guard, but found
the communication cord broken, and as
the flames were every second obtaining
a firmer hold of the woodwork one- of
the occupants, at the risk of his life,
went along the footboards to the guard's
van, only to learn that the latter had
no means of communication with the
engine driver. Meanwhile, as the train
rushed on, the flames increased in vol-
ume, and the passengers, in a panic,
fired revolver shots to attract the atten-
tion of those on the engine. Even this
failed, however, and the condition of af-
fairs was becoming most serious, when
the guard succeeded in scrambling across
the carriages to the engine. The train
was stopped and the fire eventually sub-

The Kola nut has been used for centur-
ies by Africans as a renewer of the tissues
and a preventer of fatigue.
Dr. Charcot, the eminent authority on
nervous diseases, prepared a presctiption
from Kola which he vouched for as a true
specific in all nervous diseases and a sure
invigorator for the blood.
Dr. Charcot's Kola Nervine Tablets are
prepared upon the above mentioned pre-
scription from the fresh nuts especially
imported from Western Africa.
Kola is not a cure-all. It is a food for
nerves, brain and muscles and a tonic for
the blood.
Kola Nervine Tablets are absolutely cer-
tain and speedy in their effects. They
cure all nervous diseases, prevent fatigue,
renew failing vigor, give tone to the whole
Kola Nervine Tablets cure sleepless-
ness and the nervous troubles from which
sleeplesntss comes. They are specific in
cases of nervous dyspepsia.
The druggists say the demand for the
Tablet is astonishing. Kola is what the
debilitated want.
Thousands of packages have been sold.
Good effects were felt at once.
Hundreds of letters say: "One package
of the Tablets, costing $1.00, has done
for me what physicians, who cost me $100
failed to do."
We absolutely guarantee that no harm-
ful or secondary effects are felt from the
use of the Tablets.
Can you, injustice to yourself, refuse to
pay 3 cents a day for sure relief from neu-
ralgia, bloodlessness, brain fatigue, sleep-
lessness, nervous dyspepsia. loss of vigor,
melancholia and all the evils resulting
from a nervous condition? Ask yourself
the question with all seriousness.
Dr. A. C. Shrewin is one of the best
physicians in New England. He writes:
"Hotel Pelham, Boston, Dec. 6th, 1895.
-Gentlemen; I am prescribing Dr. Char-
cot's Kola Nervine Tablets for Nervous-
ness, Insomnia, Dyspepsia and Neuralgia,
with excellent results. I havt no hesita-
tion in stating that they are infallible in
all forms of nervous diseases. Their in-
vigorating properties are wonderful.
Yours truly, A. C. Shrewin, M. D."
Edward Everett Hale, D. D., the famous
author of "The Man Without a Country",
in an editorial in the Boston Common-
wealth, and later in a personal letter,
wrote thus:
"I am assured by a careful inquiry
among leading physicians and personal
friendss who ha~e used them and in whom
I have the utmost confidence-that Dr-
Charcot's -o'a Nervine Tablets are in-
valuable in insomniau rnd all nervous dis-

'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.
'1 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 e disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
rT the end that-in the shortest practicable time every su;h tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question which 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 arc given:
Price of ana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; *ostofplanting lst
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
It is not extravagant to estimate that a I-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 bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japain chestnuts, pecans, and .uany 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-
*' aswer all questions asked it.
R E M EM B E R the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CORRESPONDENCE SOLICITED.

For a State Democratic Conven-
tion at Ocala, Tuesday, June
16, 1896.
The Democratic party of the state
of Florida will hold a state conven-
tion at Ocala on Tuesday, June 16th,
at 12 m. for the following punposes:
To choose delegates to represent
the state in the national Democratic
convention to be held at Chicago,
iuly 7th, 1896; to nominate candi-
dates for the offices of governor, one
justice of the supreme court, a secie-
tary of state, attorney general comp-
troller, treasurer, superintendent of
public instruction, commissioner of
agriculture, four presidential electors
and four alternates, to be voted for at
the next regular state election; and
to transact such other business as
may come before the convention.
The different counties in the state
will send delegates to the conven-
tion upon the following basis of rep-
resentation: "One delegate for each
100 votes cast for the candidate on
the state ticket who received the
highest number of votes at the gen-
eral election of 1892, and one addi-
tional vote for the fraction in excess
thereof when it amounts to 50 or
more. The counties under this rule
will be entitled to representation as

But if any county increased its
Democratic vote for any state officer
at the general election in 1894 over
that of 1892, the Democratic county
convention assembled for the purpose
of electing delegates to said state-
convention such additional del-
egates on the basis heretofore fixed
for the action of said convention,
which shall pass upon the question
as to whether such additional repre-
sentation shall be allowed said
The counties will select their dele-
gates in any manner which may be
considered best by the people acting
through the party organizatioPs as
recognized by the last state conven-
tion. All Democrats are invited to
participate in 1he selection of dele-
gates thereto, including those who
inv hpo'eomp %lifid to otp sin
t'e Tast e-ctmon.
Arrangements are bei.ig made by
a committee appointed for such pur-
pose to secure reduced rates of trans.
portationu to and from the conven-
tion, and this committee will give
the county committees due notice of
the result ot its efforts at an early
The chairman and secretary of
each county convention held for the
purpose of electing delegates to the
state convention will confer a favor
upon the state committee by send-
ing to S. M. Sparkman, chairman,
Tampa, Fla., a written or printed
copy of the proceedings of such con-
ventions together with a list of the
names of the county executive com-
nittees appointed, on which should

retaries of such committees.

The following resolution was
adopted by the state Democratic ex
ecutive committee during its session n
at Tampa on the 24th:
That it is not the sense of the state
committee to prevent any democrat
forn participating in the selection
of delegates to the state convention
who in good faith, and to the satis-
faction of the county Democratic
committee, and under such rules as
they may prescribe, agrees to support
the nominees of the state convention.
