The Nation's Loss.
In the sudden death of ex-Gov
Russell, which followed so shortly
after the exciting scenes of the Cli-
cago coiIvention, the country loses
one of, if not its ablest and n.ost
promising young statesmen.
If ever in thlie history of tlie conn-
try it stood ip need of the wisdom of
great minds, now is that time,and the
loss of the giant mind ot Mr. Russell
is no less than a calamity, and think-
ing men will mourn as they sellonm
have before.

never spoke the bitter things he might
have read in her face, for there she
found herself at the end of her force,
and burst into tears. And what wonder
if she did after all she had suffered?
The violence of her spirits had kept her
up for awhile, but now the reaction
had had time to work, and there was
nothing for it but tears.
"There, there!" said Farochol in an
uncertain tone, that he must have meant
to be soothing, but the sobs came thick
and fast. "I saved your mother," he
went on; "that's something, isn't it?"
But that only seemed to make bad
worse, for she cried more bitterly than
before. He got up uneasily, and began
pacing to and fro, a turn or two, at his
wits' end. Presently he went to a lock-
er and took out a jolly, fat bottle. First
he took a pull, and a good one, himself,
and then, reaching out, so as to keep as
far from her as he could, he set it on
the edge of table nearest her.
"There, there," he said, "have a drop

where a blow would not serve, for,

A BUSINESS IN


GREAT _IATERS.

By JULIAN CORBETT,
Author of "Tle Fall of AsjaIrd," "Cophet-
ua XIII" and "For God and Gold."

[Copyright, 1895, by American Press Associa-
tion.]
[CONTINUED.]
"No, sir."
"What for, then?"
"For herself, sir."
There was something almost ludicrous
in the crestfallen look that came into
his face at what Curtis said. Hitherto
he had believed the countess meant the
pistol for himself, and his savage na-
ture had admired her resolution. It was
clearly no small shock to his boorish
vanlity that her mind had been to use it
on herself rather than play the wife to
him. So plain was his chagrin written
on his face that the lieutenant could
not but come to the same conviction
that the American had had reason al-
ready to form, and that was that Faro-
chol had conceived some brutish kind of
affection for the countess, and that this
perhaps had been the spring of his con-
duct all along.
At any rate, on this occasion, there
was no time for Curtis to pursue the
idea to any conclusion, for Farochol
turned sharply to the American and
said:
"Take the men away and leave the
wench to me."
Curtis and Dunk exchanged glances
that said unmistakably, each to the oth-
er, that come what might she should
not be left alone with him. Each stood
his ground without an offer to move.
The American, too, in his own way,
was equally determined, and did not
stir from the seat he had resumed.
"Would it not be more regular, cap-
tain," he began, with an intention of
trying a taste of that diplomatic ability
in which his faith seemed quite unsha-
ken, but Farochol, who was looking
from the lieutenant to the skipper, cut
him short.
"What I" he cried with a very dark
look, as if he had taken deep offense.
'~Pthat it? Not leave a daughter alone
with her father! Stamp me black, but
you shallI Charge your pistol. D'ye
hear I"
Not a little startled at the order, Cur-
tis obeyed with deliberation, wondering
what was coming, and with half a
mind, in his desperation, not to stop at
loading. But when he h'id carefully
primed it and closed the pan hb set it
on the table again.
"Nol" said Farochol, "not there;
give it to her."''
It was impossible for Curtis to.keep
the unwilling admiration he felt for the
man's extraordinary resolution out of
his face as he obeyed. As for Lucile,
she took the weapon like one in a dream.
"Now, gol" cried the captain, and
there was a sort of triumphant mockery
in his voice.
CHAPTER XXIII
IN THE CAPTAIN'S CABIN.
When the sentry closed the door on
the men there was silence for a time,
Lucile hanging her head, and the cap-
tain looking at her. He must have been
very much embarrassed, for when she
glanced up he turned away his eyes
hastily. She could not but feel he was
shy, a little afraid of her, in fact, and
with a woman's instinct for advantage
she left him to begin.
Some minutes went by before he could
find his tongue, and when he did it was
only to stop and clear his throat. Then
he started afresh and said gruffly:
"I'm your father, you know."
"You!" she cried, flaming up. "You
killed my father !"
"Aye," he answered, "and that's the
worst of it."
It was said with a lugubrious growl
that conveyed the queerest suggestion of
regret. Why she did it is hard to say,
but now she was moved to put the pistol
away from her hurriedly, and so she
shuddered back into silence.
"I couldn't help it, you see," he la-
bored on again presently, "not after
what he had done."''
"He had done nothing," she cried.
"Ho! ho!" said he. "How's that?
What was taking Pitt's gold to give up
Fangeport? What was that?"
"It was a lie," she exclaimed with
great heat. "My father could never be a
traitor. It is Jacobins like you who are
the traitors."''
"That's the way," he said, rubbing
his hands. "That's how it should be.
She's my daughter now."
She looked at him once more, but


"Pass the word for Colonel Pococke,"'
he said with all the old rasp in his
voice, and then came back to stare at
the sobbing girl, the picture of a baffled
man.
He had adopted what was his only
possible expedient. For, like most men
who are lifted quickly from the lowest
step, he had little notion of maintain-
ing his position beyond keeping his sub-
ordinates at a distance. Hitherto no one
but the American had been so much as
admitted to his table. There was not
another soul on board to turn to in a
difficulty. Indeed, he would hardly have
admitted his necessity even to the colo-
nel but for his ingratiating behavior
since he had joined.
With Farochol his note was a digni-
fied affability, and so nice a stickler was
he by birth and nature for just distinc-
tions of rank that the suspicious cap-
tain could receive his approaches with-
out fear.
V"o doubt, too, there was sometbjv.
in the American's deportment that had
a good deal to do with it. Too ill bred
to feel the vulgarity of its exaggeration,
Farochol seemed to find in it the model
for a great man's bearing, and began to
affect a crude replica of the colonel's
accomplished bearing.
But now comes the rattle of the sen-
try's firelock as he saluted, and then
the American, with a quicker step than
ordinary, and a very serious face, when
he showed it in the door.
Farochol eyed him suspiciously, like
a man half afraid of ridicule, as no
doubt he was, at his collapse before the
girl, but being soon satisfied at the oth-
er's grave demeanor he jerked his thumb
significantly toward Lucile, and then,
with his hands clasped behind him and
his great hat cocked over one eye, went
on, looking hard at his counselor.
So, for a good space, they stood at
arm's length. It was the American who
spoke first.
"We must get her away from here,"
he said oracularly, and not without a
clever assumption of merely echoing the
captain's thought.
The suspicious look was in Farochol's
face at once, but passed away directly,
as if he accepted the interpretation of
his ideas.
"How?" says he, with a harsh snap.
"There's the prize," suggested the
American. "You would naturally be
sending her into Brest with the prison-
ers."
"But she is registered American."
"Is she?" said the American inno-
cently. "Then there's a difficulty."
At that Farochol gave him one of his
cunning leers.
"You are deep," he says; "deep as
the pit. You know well enough 'tis a
false register, and, neutral or no neu-
tral, she has been harboring aristocrats
and escaped prisoners. She's lawful
prize. ou know that aswae as I do."
"I said send her in, from the first."
"So you did; but, sink me, what's
the good of that talk? You know what
will happen if they clap hands on t"'em
again. There's the Englishman; ne'll
be shot out of hand. I owe him a turn.
She would have put a hole in my head
if it hadn't been for him, and how am
I to break the black luck that's on mo if
I don't pay up? And then there's those
other two. A Brest prison is no place
for her, though the lad may rot for all I
care. But her, that's different. I want
her-she's a credit to a man."
"I can see only one thing for it."
"Out with it then."
'Tis simple enough. To oblige you
I will take the prize in myself and see
that they come to no harm. I may say
that my credit with, the representative
is more than sufficient to insure their
safety."
"What?" said Faroohol, growing
very cunning again. "Send home my
commandant of marines in the first prize
I pick up. What would they be saying
to that?"
"Important information which you
had obtained concerning the movements
of the Chounus would naturally require
you to dispatch a confidential agent to
inform the representative. In view of
the very serious condition that affairs
are now in, it is not a matter you would
intrust to the first comer."
"You are deep-deep as hell," said
Farochol with an ugly saturnine grin,
and then, with a change, burst out fu-
riously. "No, stamp me, no I You shan't
set foot in France again till I do.,"
"Have you further orders for me,
Captain Farochol?" was the American's
answer.
Without answering, the seaman be-
gan again uneasily tramping up and
down the cabin.
'Twas black luck to take her," he
growled, half to himself. "But a man
couldn't throw away such a.chance of a


"Shall I let it be known?" said the
American, about to go.
For a little time longer the captain,
in a great disturbance of mind, went o'-
unsteadily pacing up and down, and
then he turned in a shamofatced nianne
to give his answer.
But he never gave it. I don't know;
what Lucilo saw in his face or what
glow of feeling caused her to do what
she did, but all at once the low cabin
was full of the music of her voice-
clear and level and scornful.
"The old captains, it said, "used to
command their ship. "
Farochol swung round on her with a
very wicked look, but she was in a
higher mood than his could touch. Sh6e
saw the Englishman was in danger, and
in a burst of that glowing generosity
that covered all her sins she was re-
solved to save him. The woman in her
was quick enough to divine the value
her rough captor set upon her admira-
tion, and perhaps it was the very heat
of her sudden impulse that (Curtis must
not lie ;sacririd that tau::ght her that td
insult Farochol, to -ting him in the ten-
der pl:co of his pridle, was the way of
all others at that ninme t to spur hin
into a. Aic:l.

not one of them but would burn in
brimstone for a skinful. I send along
with you a report of this hanky-panky
of yours with the Englishman. So, eyes
open for squalls if you ever reach Brest."
"But, my dear captain," began thd
American with an affectation of hearti-
ness, which his alarm was far from let:
ting him feel.
''Stow that," broke in Farochol, "and
take your orders. I'll have no more
Shanky-panky. I am going to send an old
hand with you to see you safe. Stampl
me black, if I don't. I'll send Lemai-
tre."
At that the American started like i
man at a light flashed in his eyes, and
looked sharply in Farochol's face. For
the space of a minute, it might be, the
two stared, as it were, right into each
other to make sure there was no mis-
take. It was the American whose eyes
dropped first.
"I am at your service," he said aind
-. lten slowly and with, peculiar dis-
tinctness of utterance, "I will have a
very particular care for your instruc-
tions-that is, if you will be permitted
to put them into execution."
"Permitted I" cried Farochol, with a
big oath. "That is no word for me."
The American caught sight just theti
of Lucile. Sho had loft off crying, and
lest she should hoar lie made his answer
in a low tone at the captain's ear. It
threw him into a fury whatever it was.
"Shoot the EnglishmanI" he roared
out. "Shoot himl MustI? D-n my
blood, we'll see about that!"
Lucile, who all this time had taken
no note of what they had been saying,
looked up, and the American, who saw
her face and the expression it wore, put
his finger quickly to his lips to give Fa-
rochol a hint for silence. He paid no
attention at all, but went ranting up
and down, raving about mutiny and the
insolence of his crew, and how he would
break their hearts, and all in a most
foul stream of blasphemy.
Having thus delivered himself of the
worst of his humor he cooled almost ad
suddenly as he had taken fire.
"Whose doing is this?" he growled
between his teeth as he turned sharp on
the American.
"That is more than I can tell," an-
swered the colonel. "The whole ship's
company has been in a ferment since
you opened the sealed orders. They
don't seem to fancy the west coast of
Africa at alL 'Tis no place, they say,
for the nation's '-hips, when the English
are coming to join the brigands. Yort
see they cannot quite understand the
new system of cruising against the ene-
my's trade and colonies. Their fixed
idea is that Pitt's gold is at the bottom
of it-at least so I gather-and they
swear 'tis all part of a plot to get the
frigates away from France, and so leave
the coast clear fpr thie invasion. 'Tief
absurd euo'- b ut .l.ued not tp.lll a
man of your e perience how difficult
these panics are to control just now."
"Never mind that," broke in Faroo
ahol. w~ith a surly growl and a shifty
glance at Luoile.
"The sight of the Englishman, thd
American went on, "and the two Chon-
ans, as they call them, seems to havd
brought things to a head. And I ami
afraid the talk is not confined to the,
forecastle either. There's a world of
grumbling in the wardroom. The offi-
cers have no more stomach for a west
coast cruise than the others. I fancy
they are not sorry to see the state thd
crew is getting into. There's no deny-
ing it is very serious. The best of then
say that if you want to keep hold on the
ship you must execute the English-
man."
"Why, what do they take me for? Dd
they think to bully me?"
"It will be a difficult thing to refuse
if they demand it."
"Demand it I That's no word for md
either. ''
"Of course not," pnrr:"-ed the Amerin
can. "No man of spirit would listen to
such insolence for a moment if it were?
not for that unluchky decree of the con-
vention. 'Tis no longer lawful to take
an English prisoner.''
"No more it is," said Farochol
He had become very grave during the
American's talk, continually giving fur-
tive glances at Lucile, and at each of
them he made his fierce outbursts as if
a fire were smoldering within him,
which the sight of her kept blowing td
a blaze. He was plainly very irresolute,
and had begun his fuming to and frd
again.
"I fear," the Americani went on, "if
we are to save this lady and-er-your
son from this unreasonable spirit it
would be best not to let it grow too far.
Would it not be well to check it at once
by proclaiming your decision about the'
Englishman?"
"So it would."''


bit of practice with a crew of swabs
like mine. 'Twas death black luck. If
I had only known they were on board
I'd have burned in brimstone before I'd
have run out a gun. "
So he said, but no one will ever know
whether Farochol really recognized the
Control or whether it was indeed a de-
sire to exercise his raw crew that made
him grow so hot over the chase. He had
hunted the lugger like a starved hound,
and now he had caught her it was clear
he would have been glad enough to get
his fangs out again. The American
would never believe but that the man
knew well enough what he was chasing,
and that was why he was so fierce when
the lugger outsailed him. It was Lucile,
so Pococke always maintained, who
changed his mood.
"See here," said Farochol, turning
suddenly upon his officer, "I am going
to send you to Brest all the same. "
The American bowed, but without
unbending.
"And, see here," the captain went on
in his roughest style, "I can't spare you
much of a prize crew; I am too infer-
nally short handed as it is. You'll have
to make shift with half a dozen of those
mutinous dogs that I have got in irons.
They are no good to me. I shall never

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to lear'o that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con-
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting direct-
ly upon the blood and mucous surfaces
of the system, thereby destroying the
foundation of the disease, and giving
the patient strength by building up the
constitution and assisting nature in do-
ing its work. The proprietors have so
much faith in its curative powers that
they offer One Hundred Dollars for any
case it fails to cure. Send for list of

o DISEASE has ever presented so many
.peculiarities as LaGrippe. No disease
leaves its victims so debilitated, useless,
sleepless, nerveless, as LaGrippe.
Mr. D. W. Hilton, state agent of the Mut-
ual Life Insurance Co., of Kentucky, says:
"In 1889 and '90 I had two severe attacks
of LaGrippe, the last one attacking my ner-
votis system with such severity that my life
was despaired of. I had not slept for more
than two months except by the use of nar-
cotics that stupefied me, but gave me no
rest. I was only conscious of intense mental
weakness, agonizing bodily pain and the
fact that I was hourly growing weaker.
When in this condition, I commenced using
Dr. Miles' Restorative Nervine. In two days
I began to improve and in one month's' fime
I was cured, much to the surprise of all who
knew of my condition. I have been in ex-
cellent health since and have recommended
your remedies to many of my friends."

The Kola nut has been used for centur-
ies hiy Africans as a renewer of the tissues
and a preventer of fatigue.
Dr. Charcot, the eminent authority on
nervous diseases, prepared a presetiption
from Kola which he vouched for ae 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 pie-
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, nrevent fatigue,
renew failing vigor, give tone to the whole
system.
K9ja Nervine Tablets cure sleepless-
nes and the nervous troubles from which
fsleeplesntss 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 atonce.
Hundreds of letters say: '-One package
of the Tablets, costing '$1.(I, has done
for me what physicians, who cost me $100
failed to do." t.
We absolutely guarantee that no harm-
ful or secondary effects art 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. Ile writes:
"Hotel Pelhani, Boston, Dec. 6th, 1895.
--Gentlemen; I anm prescribing Dr. Char-
cot's Kola Nervine Tablets for Nervous-
ness, Insomnia, Dyspepsia and Neuralgia,
with excellent results. I have no hesita-
tion in stating that they are. infallible in
all forms of nervous diseases. Thi-ir 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 Commotn-
wealth, and later in a personal letter,
wrote thus:
"I am assured by a careful inquiry
among leading physicians and personal
friends who have used them and in whom
I have the utmost confidence-that Dr-
Charcot's Kola Nervine Tablets are in-
valuable in insomnia and all nervous dis-
eases. EDw. E. HALE.

Reply to Visitor.
Correspondence of the Buoy.
ED. BuoY:-In your last issue some
person of hidden identity under the
fictitious cloak of "A Visitor," takes
me to 'task for being too zealous in
the temperance lecture of Saturday
night, the 15th, to weigh well all
that I said.
Not knowing to which sex "Vis-
itor" belongs, for convenience I will
dub it a he.
It is quite evident from the trend
of "Visitor's" article that he attend-
ed the lecture more to criticise than
to speak well of, and hence bent the
straight truths presented to fit the
meanderings of his own mind. He
plays upon the words "consumed"''
and "produced." I had learned a


Come Home, Poo, Come Homie.
Written for the IBuoy.
There is a man in our town
By the name ofG. A. S.,
Who was a candidate for county judge
At his own expense.
He has been on a ten days trip
Through this county wide;
He ripped and raved and pulled his hair,
But the pops could not decide.
He was one of the pop's candidates,
Though that is all the same;
Poor fellow, he should have stayed at
home,
And forever there remain.
He is a third-grade pedagogue,
And a U. S. pensioner, you know;
To put such men in office,
With the pops it's all the go.
The pops are mighty people
Whenever they begin;
They say "to put the old one's out
And put some new one's in."
The pops they think they know it all,
But there's one thing in the way,
For the democratic party
Is in the field to stay.
So take down your sign, pops,
And go in for reform,
For the democratic party
Has "free silver" in it's platform.
For that you have been fussing,
For lo, these many years;
So haul down your colors, pops,
And wipe away your tears.
Come home! pops, come home!
Come back to the home of your birth;
To the grandest and greatest party
That ever graced the earth.
To the grand old democracy
That has and will ever stand-
The people's glorious freedom
It has at it's command.
So lay aside your popism
And not be led astray;
Come back pops, come back!
And try the good old way.

intemperance.


But no, there are


too many pharasaical temperance
people like our sleepy-headed "Vis-
itor" a-straddle the fence, nodding
one second on the side of temperance
and the next on the side of intemper-
ance.
True, *education is about the only
way by which any change will ever
be brought about, and of course that
change will be slow in coming," for
there are so many people with their
ears half shut to the truth, whose
minds aie incapable of forming fair
and consistent judgment. They
need to be educated. That prince of
educators, Col. Francis W. Parke,
says, "education is life."

fres Coinije vrona Drive Gold On
This country has now over $1,250,-
000,000 in metallic money in nearly
equal amounts of gold and silver. The
free coinage advocates propose that the
government should coin all the silver
brought to the United States mints at a
ratio of 16 to 1. As the commercial
ratio is over 30 to 1, the result of such
free coinage would be to force out of
circulation all the gold now in use.
This always has been and always will
be the effect of laws making a cheaper
money a legal tender for the same
amount of value as a better money.
There can be no escape from the c6oh-
clusion that so long as the bullion in a
silver dollar is worth less than that in
a gold dollar the dearer coin will not
circulate.
The real question, therefore, which
the American people are called upon to
answer is whether they wish to continue
the present system, by which over $600, -
000,000 of silver money is kept at a
parity with gold, or to adopt a 16 to 1
ree coinage law which will give ua .l-
ver money only. All who want the per-
manent use of both metals should vote
for a sound currency based on the gold
standard. The men who are shouting
for free silver may call themselves "bi-
metallists," but they are in reality
working for the contraction of our
money to the single silver standard.
The Gresbam Law Demonstrated
Because in all ordinary business mat-
ters the best quality of goods sold at a
certain price invariably drives out an
inferior qual-ty sold at the same price,
the silverites deny that if under a 16 to
1 free coinage law silver forced gold out
of use it would show that the silver
money was worth less than the gold.
"If," they ask, "a good quality of flour
or tea drives out inferior goods, why
does not the same rule apply to money?"
That it does not is due to the fact that
whereas goods of all kinds are sold on
their own merits, a cheap kind of money
is forced on the public by laws which
make it legal tender. This is clearly
shown in the operation of the Sherman
silver purchase law, under which legal
tender notes representing silver bullion
were issued. The effect of that law on
the kind of money used in paying cus-
toms duties at the principal port of en-
try in the United States is stated as fol-
lows by ex-Secretary of the Treasury
Charles Foster in a recently published
letter: "The Sherman law alarmed the
financial centers as to the disposition of
the government to maintain gold pay-
ments.
"Then, in the financial centers, the
quality of our money was critically con-
sidered. While gold, silver and treasury
notes are a legal tender, yet the fact is,
silver is the least valuable, and treasury
notes not so valuable as gold.
"Under the alarming conditions re-
ferred to the Gresham law was put to
a test under the severest possible condi-
tions, and was found to be infallible.
Customs dues were paid in silver, in the
main, and in treasury notes. Gold pay-
ments for customs dues practically
ceased."
For the fisoal year 1890-i the gold re-
ceipts at the New York custom house
were $110,800,000; for 1891-2 they
were $81,600,000, and for 1892-8 6nly
$9,400,000. The cheaper money was
used instead of gold, the dearer, as it
always will be.


number of years since that there is a
distinction bet'even the two words;
also that the gallons of liqor lpro-
dunced a:ndl consumed were approxi-
mately equivalent. I stated that
there were 1,140,000,000 gallons of
liquor consumed during the fiscal
year ending June 30, 1895, and this
is the record of the United States
statistics. So it is plain to a fair-
minded person that I have not
"painted the country even blacker
than it is." Statistics will not up-
hold "Visitor's" statement about
Iowa prohibition.
"Visitor" makes me say, "A saloon
keeper is like a bull dog, always nip-
ping at one's heels." I made no
such statement. 1 called attention
to the flimsy assertion offered by
some people that a saloon makes
lively times; anl to show that there
were kinds of life not to onr best in-
terests, referred to a bull dog's run-
ning out after you when passing
along the public thoroughfare.

ORGANIZED JANUARY.


9, 1892.
c^j aQQ*?


To purpose of this Association is to'Improve the Country adjacent to St
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Coiuntry.
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 thiv
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 s,'h tract shall be a
Source of Ro' venue to its Owner.
As TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION
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 tile 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 ;ana per acre, say *,-:h to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $ ~0
It is notextravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $-200 worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable clearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persnimons almonds Engli.sh
walnuts, Japar. 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-
sidered certain yield large returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodliation 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 B E R the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must hie paid for as satisfactory proof in given
that the work has been performed. C 0 RR RE S P0 NDEN C VS 0 LiJT ITE D.

A Square Meal In New York.
I saw a -stranger who seemed to be
from the agricultural districts looking
into a Broadway restaurant one evening,
and as he seemed to be undecided in his
mind I asked if I could help him out.
"Look a-here, friend," he replied as
ho turned to me, "I'm jest a-longin fur
a squar' meal. "
"Well, why don't you go in there and
get it?"
"Like all the rest of 'em-too much

the right kind of a place over sence
noon, but can't find it. I'm no folde-
rol man. I'm jest plain everyday, and
those 'ere stylish eatin houses don't fit
me 'tall."
"What kind of a place do you want?"
I asked.
"Waal, something homelike," he sigh-
ed. "Somethin without scollops. I want -
a place whar I kin go in and hang up my
coat and hat and sot down to corn beef
and tators and squash and real solid
nurvishuns fur the stomach. I don't
want no waiter foolin around me, and I
want to eat with my knife and take it

other and pintin me out. There ortor be

"'Ys, there is."
"'Waal, you tell me-whar to find it,
and I'll fill up and be your friend fur

to take off my coat and eat. jest as I

SKETCHES BY M. QUAD

Truth Comes Hard.
Ho was a young man of 19 or 20, and
as he entered the smoking car everyone
regarded him with lively curiosity. He
had on a coat trimmed with bearskin;
his pants were tucked into his boot legs,
and the belt around him carried a
"gun." A: sort of hunting bag slung
over his shoulder was decorated with
beads, and lie had long hair, a big hat
and a buckskin shirt. As he sat down
near me I took a sharp look at his face
and soon concluded.that he was a truth
loving young nma u.A-littlo later on,
whln lie asked. me for a light for his
pipo, I queried:
"You probably never saw an Indian
in warpaint?"
"No-o, I never did," he answered aft-
or a brief mentalstruggle.
"And you are not a western terror
from Terrorsville, with five or six.tal-
ly marks on the slock of your six shoot-

"Well, no."
"You are not even a cowboy, I take
it?"
"No, not a regular cowboy."
"The fact is," I continued, "you live
in Iowa, Illinois or Wisconsin and are
going home, and you assume this dress
to attract attention. You anticipate
creating quite a sensation when yoa
reach home?"
Ho blushed and.moved about uneasi-
ly, but was silent.
"You anticipate sitting on the crack-
er barrel in the grocery and telling the
boys how you wiped out Indians, shot
grizzlies, rode at the head of stamped-
ing herds and hunted bad men out of
town."
He looked up at me in a shamefaced,
appealing way, but I went on :
"You haven't had any of those togs,
except the hair, over three days, and
none of them is a decent fit, anyhow.
The idea among the passengers is that
you belong to some side show and got
left behind. When we get to Kearney
the intercepting committee will take
you in hand for an overhauling."
"What is the intercepting commit-
tee?" he anxiously inquired.
"Why, a committee of three men

"Plum Creek! All out for Plum
Creek!" shouted the brakeman at that
instant, and the young man rose up,
gave me a long, lingering look of re-.
proach, and scrambled out of the car in
such haste that he fell over a squaw
and her papoose seated on the platform
and had his legs tangled up with a lot

igger Than Uncle Sam.
An hour after midnight the other
night a patrolman found a man seated
on the steps of the postoffice with his
elbows on his knees and his head in his
hands, and giving him a shake the offi-
cer said:
"Come, old man, this is no lodging
house!"
"No, sir," replied the man as he
roused up, "this is the postoffice. I
knew it when I sat down here. It is
seldom I mistake a postofilcefor a lodg-
ing'house. Did you suppose I was labor-
ing under the impression that I had
turned into a cheap room on the fourth
floor back and left orders to be called at
7 o'clock in the morning?"
"You'll have to move on," replied
the officer.
"Isn't this a government building?"
"Yes, sir. ''"
"Owned and run by the government
of the United States?"
"Yes, sir. ''
"And has Uncle Sam ordered me to
move on?"
"No, sir, but I have, and you don't
want to linger over an hour."
"My dear sir," said the night hawk
as he looked up, "aro you a bigger man
than Uncle Sam?"
"I am, sir," replied the officer as he
dallied with his club.
"Then I bow to circumstances and
will move on. Could you spare me a
photograph?"
"No, sir. "
"Will you give me your autograph?"
"No, sir."
"Then let me gaze at you for half a
minute to indelibly impress your fea-
tures upon the tablets of my memory.
That will do, and I thank you. I have
met a bigger man than Uncle Sam, and
I shall be able to describe him to the

all physicians.
It is no less certain that the condi-
tion cf trade and indus-ry depends
largely on the opinions of manufactur-
ers and other employers of labor as to
the prospects of a good demand for their
products. Owners of capital will not
invest in new industries unless they
think they will be successful- When the
busin~cs outlook is dcubitul, there is no
encouragement to enterprise, and trade
and production lan1guish.
During tha past few years a lot of
office seeking agitators have been howl-
ing il cCoigress a:.d in calamity newspa-
pers that fbhs grena country was on the
verge cf ruin for lack of 50 cent silver
dollars. In season nrad out of season
have they cried "Hard times!" and
'Business stagnation!" No nmtter what
the c:udition of trade might be they
have insisted that everything was going
to eternal smash unless a free and un-
limited coinage law was adopted by
congress. They are still keeping up the
rachet, and are doing their level best
to show that the country is practically
bankrupt.
Even though it is known that the as-
scrt'ons cf the silveritc-s are unfounded,
their constant preaching of blue ruin
and despair has had the result of scaring
investors ard l:usincss mrncn generally,
and thus bringing about some of the
evils which it was alleged free silver
would cure. It would be difficult to
overestimate the widespread injury
caused by the senseless clamor of theC
prophets (f gloom who worship the sil-
ver pig. If the American people who
want good times and permanent pros-
perity are wise, they will in Novembez
bury the calamity wailers so deep un-
der sound money votes that they will
never again rise to vex the country with
their doleful strains.-Whidden Gra-

Bland a Honesty Not Disputed;
Tho Washington correspondent bf the
St. Louis Globe-Democrat sends this
good story to his paper:
"Shortly before he went out of con-
gress Mr. Bland was a guest at a dinner
given to several Missouri members by
ex-Senator John B. Henderson.
'Bland,' said Genera'l Henderson,
'some eastern people ere discussing
you in my presence the other evening.
They were wondering whetIher you were
honest in your profession, whether you
really believed what you talked about
free coinage. They wanted to know
what I thought about it.'
'What did you tell them?' asked
Mr. Bland.
'I told them,' said General Hen-
dorson, 'that you believed all you said
about free coinage.'
'I am much obliged to you,' said
Mr. Bland.
'I told them,' General Henderson
went on after a moment's pause, 'that
you were honest in your silver profes-
sions because you didn't know any bet-
ter. '
'I don't know that I am so much
obliged to you, after all,' said Mr.
Bland good humoredly."
