The Grandest Creed.
Written for the Buoy.
They have some truth, whatever creed
professing,
Who follow in the way that duty
leads;
The simple souls and faithful find a
blessing
In all the creeds.
He has the noblest faith, no creed con-
fessing,
Who writes his faith in deeds.
We still, with vision prone the truth di-
vining,
Read what the letter, not the spirit,
saith;
Still in the old, time-honored creeds is
hiding,
Fear's awful wrath;
Yet human hearts may find a peace
abiding,
Safe in the ampler faith-
That all earth's pilgrim souls. not un-
forgiving, 1
Whatever devious ways their feet have
trod,
Purged of each base desire; by sorrow
shriven-
Love's chast'ning rod;
Or soon or late, in the just courts of
Heaven,
Shall find their home in God.
-E. A. EMMONS.

MAN praises generally only to be
praised.

HYPOCRICY is the homage which
vice renders to virtue.

THE desire to appear qble often
prevents our becoming so. .

IT is easier to be wise yor others
lhan te be wise for one's self.


To praise noble actions heartily is
in some ni1f take part in them.

IF we did not flatter ourselves th<
flattery of otIheis could not Ihurft

\V f I. t l eidilte pi, pl,' ,le enxcep
those who are of our way oI think
ing.

WE often forgive those who lovi
us, but we cannot forgive those whon
we love.

To praise egotists for virtues they
have not, is to insult them with im
punity.

OUR enemies come nearer ~le trutl
in the opinions they form of us, thai
we do ourselves.

AN honest man who says ")r
:t .odtiis char-
no, deserves to be
acter swear
j i? would often be ashamed of
heir best actions, if the world saw
the motives which prompted them.

WHY should people have memory
enough to retain even the smallest
particulars of what has happened to
them, and yet not have enough to
remember how often they have told
them to the same individual.

OCALA Banner: The Buoy didn't
want to say but does say that Sena-
tor Call is "an insurmountable ob-
ject." Well?
The Banner's imagination must
have been exceedingly elactic to infer
that tae Buoy would even insinuate
that ex-Senator Call was "an insur-
mountable object," or an object that
could not easily be rejected.

Chicago Election.
The true significance of the elec-
tion of Carter Harrison as mavor of
Chicago, remains as yet a problem
or future development. As is well
known, Mr. Harrison was promoted
by ex-Gov. Altgeld and his followers
upon an endorsement of the Chicago
national platform, when committed
nationally, and against the more
peaceable element of Chicago as a
ocal issue. Whether this action of
the voters of Chicago is a reversal of
he verdict given for sound money at
he November election, or rather a
vindication of those who were insti-
gators in the famous labor dispute is
'et a matter which will explain
itself.
'here can be no doubting the
act that the result threw into con-
ternation all who felt an interest in
he overthrow of the anarchlistic ele-
nent of Cook county politics, and(, in
act, even a great surprise to the
ion-interested who awaited the result
s a criterion to. future national po-
itical decisions.


Duties Before the Present Leg-
islature.
Probably never since Florida's ad-
mission as a state in 1846, has she
witnessed a legislature which had so
many imminent duties and as heavy
responsibilities confronting it as does
the present organization. It is the
task of this legislature to elucidate
perplexing political conundrums
which have, through mislegislation,
been years in maturing. It must
strive to please the constituents of
each individual member without
neglecting the several interests of the
state as a commonwealth, and vice
versa.
The legislature of 1897 must for-
ever bear in mind that great maxim
of Benjamin Franklin, "that which
is time enough, always proves little
enough," and not consume valuable
time in the idle discussion of national
questions which are in no manner
germane or bear significance upon
the issue before the body as an in-
dividual parliament entrusted to the
discharge of questions which exercise
their pait in the constitution of this
great aggregation of states that
forms the grandest government of
modern times. They must never,
through temporary enthusiasm, neg-
lect the fact that their course during
this sixty days will be observed by
an anxious people, whose destiny de-
pends upon their discretion and di.
plomacy, and that the course pursued,
whether it be good or evil, will be


charged or credited to them by those
who have placed in them the tr
to dispense that whrchi tt~1,1hre.-
selves.o,,ulil discharge were our
state a strict democracy.
Above all they must pay little
heed to the backward-looking and
dissatisfied pessimists who are eter-
nally clamoring for the immediate
destruction of the few bui.-iness


projects that now strugg l. for exist-
e ence, ir \\ lierever business i., assas-
sinate ,l; alb,,r i i. k .-tineil to crel
ileatji l, st'i'".t,..ni. 'VW itlI -t tr
i nii.fi, Itfe in view they should see
-and knqw that to foster business em-
barkments is to invite into our state
e an influx of prosperity that will
Surprise even the most exultant opti-
mist, and be the stiiletto in the heart
of the pessimist.
S One of the most conspicuous duties
Consigned to this honorable body is
" the election to the United States
senate of a man who is competent
and has a kpiwledlge of practical
busl well as being a versatile
arciaand thus manifest a desire
to expiate for the wrong which Flor-
ida has been dealt, as an outcome of
the delusions which their prodeces-
Ssors have been laboring under at
each succeeding senatorial election
for the past eighteen years, as shown
by the repeated reelection of Senator
Call. It is impossible for Florida to
expect prosperity while hcr highest
representative continually antago-
nizes her in all elevating efforts.
Should this legislature adjourn
without having paid attention to tlhe
mandates of its constituents, tlhe
penalty which will follow can scarce-
ly be anticipated, as people expect
much and they are not to be disap-
pointed without exciting righteous
indignation.
Itis hardly necessary to add that
the very first duty of this legislature
should be to provide a reformatory
for youthful criminals; the demand
has gone forth from every section of
the state and shoulbl not go unheeded.

The Situation in Crete.
The political situation in Crete
at present attracting the gaze of the
mighty powers of Europe, may be
viewed fro .- several different stand-
points, and the point from which it
is viewed will in a degree be a solu-
tion to the apparently perplexing
problem.
Greece stands proof against in-
fringements and intrusions upon her
social and political rights, and is yet
an object of censure from many ava-
ricious and greedy nations who would
invade and acquire by conquest that
little strip of territory in the far
M1ideterrian whichhas in days of past ,
supremacy held at bay the countless
1
armies ot kings seeking to destroy t
her grandeur. In fact when the
comparative strength of Greece and
Turkey is closely considered, and her
unwavering courage displayed in


taking the stand which she at pres-
ent maintains is fully credited, the
belligerency of Greece is a notable
continuation of that which so cun.
spicuously characterized it in the
time of A iatides, Leonidas and Philip
and Alexander of Macedon.
In the instance of Turkey the con-
dition of affairs is indirectly reversed.
Turkey stands to-day one of the
strongest riatioii of the second order,
and it may be said to equal many of
the first order, when the prestige she
controls as a leadler of tlhe blliill-
man is duly considered. The shrewd
powers of Europe are ostensibly fos-
tering her moves with the aame mo-
tives :n view that the wolf has when
he coquets with the lambkin, to en-
tice him upon thegreen in order that
he may at the proper moment devour
the unwary and innocent creature.
Not considering that Greece is classed
as a Christian nation, England is
steadily in a deceptive manner sup-
porting the outrages of the Turks by
furnishing capital to detray expenses,
Should the imminent dispute me-
tamorphoseinto an active and serious
war, it 'would ultimately result in
materially altering the political map
of Europe. It would in a great
respect be a repetition of the Crimean
war of the fifty's, with the probable
exception that Russia would result
as a gainer instead of a loser. The
neutrality maintained by some Eu-
ropean powers is only an exceedingly
discreet specimen of diplomacy ia
e-ri -,t. .too forcibly exhibit a
desire to share the soils which
.w&aud follov an active dispute ema-
nating from Greece and Turkey as
instigators. There is no possible
means by which either Turkey or
Greece could extend their dothinion,
hemmed as they are by encroaching
powers, but on the other hand they
both can los._e materially by allowing
a di.,pute to ali se which w'oull dle-
tt'act tie attention of Irine 'ho are

The Dingly TarifftBill.
Were one to confine himself ex-
clusively to a discussion of the mer-
its of the bill at present before con-
gress, familiarly known as the Dingly
Bill, his comments would undoubted-
ly be amazingly brief; yet it is never
expected that any proposal should
rest entirely upon its redeeming
qualities, for if it did the foundation
would be unable to sustain the castle
which its friends propose to erect
thereon.
While in some respects the Dingly
bill is a modification of the McKinlcy
bill of 1890-for which its supporters
were so severely punished at the
election of the following fall-con-
sidered as a whole the aid of an ex-
pert would be required to detect the
variations between the two measures,
is both were drafted for the express
purpose of placing as heavy a burden
as possible upon the consumer for the
benefit of a few producers.
Had Mr. McKinley and the repub-
lican party declared their intention
)f enacting increased protection in so
'adical a style as is exhibited therein,
hey would have severely jeopradized
hlie credit and integrity of tlhe na-
ion by making probable the election
>f Bryan and his followers
In fact the bill is one that would
abusee the protectionists of our early
lays to stand aghast with wonder-


naent, and would have excited uni- t
versal condemnation, such as should
all upon the advocates of the i
measure.

Spring Requires i
That tEe impurities which have ac- I
umulated in your blood during the

Florida to be the Utopia.
How could a y wish for more that
Florida afford! Even Naples would
yield her famous inheritance of beau-
ty, could she gaze upon that of
Florida. Nature, herself, seems to
have exercised unpardonable par-
tiality in its distribution of splendor
by allowing to Florida the amount
she possesses. Even the birds seem
to pause with jealousy- while holding
communion with inanimate nature
as they see its glories rivaling their
plumage in splendor. On summer
evenings, even the zephyrs coquet
with the songsters as they soar
gently across the glimmer of the dis-
tant disappearing sun. Surely, Lord
Lytton had in mind Florida's super-
lative beauty when composing 'fel-
notte's description of a home upon
the banks of a "clear lake margined
by fruits of gold and whispering myr-
tles." Where else could his poetic
imagination have been wandering as
lie mused that "every air was heavy
with the sighs of orange groves and
music from sweet lutes, and mur-
mars from low fountains that gush
forth from the midst of roses."
Certainly it would require one with
language as profuse as Lytton to
do justice to Flordia's grandeur.
Rains sometimes fall to mar the
peace of Florida life, but in our sun-
ny state showers are only as tears of
joy. It is with difficulty that it can
be realized an hour after, that the
fine day has been rainy. The ground
itself is soon dried as the check of a
saddened child.
In tropical Florida even the light
of the lull moor. is, so to speak.
piercing. It siezes upon everything.
it applies itself and spreads itself
over the earth with a sort of suction.
One would almost say, at these times,
that the moon was thirsty. In our
lanil a shower is as a glass of water;
a rain is swallowed iinni.eliately.
III the morning all is streaming with
A* *V4." tt0 1


afternoon all is ili.-ty. Nothing is
so admirable as a Florida flower,
washed by tile rain and wiped by the
sunbeam; it is warm treshneiss. The
gardens and the meadows, with
water at their roots, and sunshine in
their blooms become vases of incense,
and exhale all their perfumes at
once. All these laugh and sifig and
proffer themselves. We feel sweet
intoxication. Spring is a provisional
paradise; summer helps to make man
patient.
Why should the most exacting ask
more? The happy lark that nestles
neath the blue sky says "it is
enough." Oar contented dreamers
who are absorbed in this marvel draw
from the idolatry of nature an in-
difference to want and misery, they
are contemplators of the cosmos
radiantly diverted from man, they do
not understand how anybody can be
afflicted with hunger, with thirst,
with cold in winter, with the home in
the dingy garret or hovel, when they
are so happy peaceful and content.
To our happy citizen, the infinite
is sufficient. The great need of man,
the finite, which admits of embrace,
they through contentment ignore.
The infinite, which admits of priva-
tion, hunger and distress, they do
not think of. The indefinite, which
s born of the combinations human
and diyine; all escape them, as they
are, themselves face to faMe with
nature's immensity. All is loy, all is
ecstacy, they even lose themselves in
.heir pleasant life. They forget all
past sorrows and indulge only in the
beauties of the future, they grow not
pessimistic from mourning bygone re-
verses, but optimistic anticipating
Prosperity. Surely if America
s to have a Utopia, it will be in
Florida.

PERHAPS some who were so enthu-
iastic to entice Mr. Bryan to address
lie Florida legislature would feel
somewhat piqued were his regaling
of the silver fad to result in the re-
lection of Senator Call.

to street-urchin)-"Little boy,
don't you know smoking is sinful?
Who learned you the vile habit?"
Swipesey Guttersnipe (puffing a
igarette)-"Sir, the habit is no
iler than your illiteracy; but, over-
ooking that, I will say that I taught
myself."


"Hesi with his' mother in the parlor
and just too miserable for anything,"
said Kitty, who, now that she could nee
for herself the preparation for a march,
began to feel far more sympathy for her
lover, if not actually to wish that she
were a man and could go too. Ellis,
quick to notice Ormsby's coming, had
slipped back within the hall and par-
tially closed the door. Glancing over
her shoulder, she could See that her
mother had left her reclining chair and
was bending fondly over Will, smooth-
ing his tumbled hair and striving to
soothe and comfort him, but it was evi-
dent that Will was sorely hurt, for he
turned away in irrepressible chagrin
and distress and covered his face with
his hands. Helen Daunton, forgetful
for the moment of her own bitter trou-
ble, had sought to aid her friend in con-
soling the boy, but it was her first expe-
rience in such a case. She had never
realized what it meant to a proud and
ambitious young soldier to be held in
garrison when his comrades were being
sent to the field, and, finding presently
that she could be of little aid, she drew
away toward the window to join the
chaplain and his wife, who were gaz-
ing out upon the parade, when the stir-
ring notes of adjutant's call came trill-
ing through the hazy moonlight, and,
with a groan that seemed to rise from
the depths of his heart, poor Will threw
himself face downward upon the sofa,
utterly refusing to be comforted.
"Come," said the chaplain in a low
tone, "they will be better left to them-
selves, Let us go out and.see the troops
form line," and, hastily quitting the
parlor, they came suddenly upon Ellis
lingering at the outer door.
"Mr. Ormsby was saying goodby to
Kitty," she nervously explained, "and
I remained here for a moment. ,e is
still there."'
Yes, still there, although he had said
adieu to his little sister, and the squad-
ron was rapidly forming on the parade.
Still there and looking now l

lace, clouded with a trouble altogether
new to it. Still there, and longing for
a sight of the face he loved as he did po
other despite all its coldness and Naer-
sion. Then they came hurrying forth-
the old dominie and his faithful help-
meet, the two young and beautiful
women-and at sight of them Ormsby
suddenly dismounted and passing the
reins to his orderly ran nimbly up the
steps and extended his hand. "Good
night, chaplain-good night, Mrs.
Ransom. We count on eating our
Christmas dinner here despite the night
march. Good night, Miss Farrar," he
added gravely, gently. "We still hope
to be here to wish you merry Christmas.
Please extend my sympathies to Will. I
know how hard it is for him to stay.
Good night, Mrs. F-Mrs. Daun-
ton," he stumbled on, and extended to
her the hand which he had withheld
from Ellis. "Oh, pardon mel Did Far-
rar give you a note I intrusted to him
for you?"
"Not yet, Mr. Ormsby. He has hard-
ly thought of anything but his grief at
being retained here."
"Well, ask him for it before 10
o'clock. It"-and he was halting pain-
fully now, for Ellis, withdrawing a
pace from the group, was gazing straight
into his face-"it-it explains itself.
You'll understand it. Good night; good
night, all. I must hurry." And with
that he ran down the steps and oiut of
the gate, mounted quickly, and without
a backward glance rode quickly away
to take his place by the colonel's side.
Another moment and the adjutant, gal-
loping out in front of the long line of
horses, had presented the squadron to
Major Wayne, and that distinguished
officer, unexpectedly awake and lively,
lost no time in preliminaries, but broke
his command at once into column of
fours, and with the band playing its
joyous march music, and with old Fen-
ton himself in the lead, away they went
down the winding road to the flats to
the east.
Once out of the garrison the band
wheeled out of column and played the
troopers by, then trotted back to unsad-
dle for the night. Men, women and
children, the populace of Fort Frayne,
gathered along the eastern edge of the
plateau and silently, and in not a few
cases tearfully, watched the column out
of sight in the dim, ghostly light, and
then little Trumpeter Meinecke came
out from the guardhouse and trilled the
martial curfew that sent them shiver-
ing homeward-an ominous Christmas
eve tattoo.


CHAPTER XL
Ten o'clock and no one yet came rid-
ing back from the column with later
news. Almost as soon as the command
had disappeared from view Mrs. Farrar
had gone home, Helen, Ellis, Kitty and
Will in close attendance, and there they
were presently joined by Aunt Lucretia,
whose volubility even calamity seemed
powerless to check, and then, to the re-
lief of all the women, Captain Leale
knocked and was promptly admitted.
"I am in search of my right hand
man," said he, with his bright, cordial
smile. "They tell me he is playing
Achilles and sulking in his tent, but I
have work for him to do," and then
once more did Kitty look remonstrance, I
for she could form no idea of work for
him that did not involve deprivation for
her. l
"You are not going to send Mr. Far-
\ .


rar away after all," 0she began, but
Leale laughingly checked her.
"Far from it," said he. "I need himn
at the guardhouse and mean to put him
in charge of the prisoners when they
come in. The chances are that the
colonel will have to arrest not a few of
those fellows, and he'll do it in the in-
terest of peace and good order, despite
the fact that he has no warrant. Are
you ready, sir?"
"I'm ready and Willing to do any
duty, Captain Leale," answered Will
ruefully. "But I was the first to volun-
teer for that courier ride to Big Road,
and I think the colonel ought to have
given it to me. I'll be officer of the
guard tomorrow anyhow, and would
just as lief begin now. Shall I come at
once?"
"Yes, the second relief goes on in a
few minutes, and you would better in-
spect them. Everything i started right,
You have a capital sergeant of the
guard. I want the sentries on the north
and east bluffs instructed to listen fori
all sounds from the east and to keep a
close watch on that plant of Bunko
Jim's. Watch every movement in that
rowdy town over yonder, though I be-
lieve most of the populace has already
ridden away at the bidding of the so
called cowboy king."
Will bent over and kissed his moth,
er's forehead. "I'll get my sword and
go at once," said he, "and I'll be lbaok

second relief. I suppose nobody here
means to turn in for an hour yet. We
ought to have news of some kind before
midnight." With that he quickly left
the little parlor and, vaulting the low
%nce, let himself in at his own door in
the adjoining bachelor roost. lrs.
Daunton, who had been occupying heri
self close to Mrs. Farrar, presently arose
and stepped into the hallway, took a
heavy wrap and noiselessly quitted the
house. Surprised, Oaptaiu Leale looked
about him for an explanation. Ellis had '

was Mrs. Parrar who spoke.
"This has been a trying day for Helen.'
She is not strong, I fear, and tonight
she is so nervous and unstrung that she
seems to shrink from company or con*.
aviation. I have never known her so
detracted. I fancy she wants to be
albne a few minutes and to take th
fresh air on the gallery." Ellis moved
impatiently, but said not a word. ShS'

on the gallery, Helen 1Daunton had
hastened through the gate, and, turning
to Will's quarters next door, was there
awaiting his reappearance. The boy
came out in a moment, his sword at his
side and wrapping his cloak about him,
and stopped short in evident surprise at
sight of Mrs. Daunton.
Ellis well understood the purport of'
the conversation that ensued, though
she could hear no word. Will searched.
one pocket after another, then ran back
into the house, came forth again in
less than a minute, handed a square,
white envelope to Mrs. Dauntoni, and,
raising his forage cap in farewell, has-
tened away across the parade. Ashamed
of her espionage, yet fascinated, Ellis
lingered at the window and saw Helen
tear open the envelope and draw forth
a little packet or roll, which she closely
inspected and rapidly counted over.

turned away. She cared to see no more.
Over at the guardhouse the second re-
lief was being formed as Farrar reached
the spot--seven soldiers in their fur
caps and gloves and heavy winter over-
coats and arctics. The corporal had just
reported them all present, and the lieu-
tenant quickly yet closely inspected
their equipment, then stepped to the
front again.
"In addition to the usual orders,"
said he, "Nos. 6 and t are cautioned to"
keep a sharp lookout and- to listen at-
tentively for anything at the eastward.
In the event of any unusual sight or
sound, call for the corporal at once. Who
Ie No. 5?"
"Graice, sir," said the corporal.
The young officer's face darkened a
bit. He had no trust in the man what-
ever and knew well his evil reputation.
"Graice," said he, "you have double
functions tonight. You have not only
the same orders as Nos. 6 and 7, but
the commanding officer directs that you
keep a special watch over the settle-
ment across the river, particularly of
the plant of Bunko Jim. I believe you
know it."
'There are plenty of others that know
it as well," was the surly and unexpect-
ed answer.
"That will do, sir," was the stern
rejoinder. "You were asked no ques-
tions and will keep silent until you are.


Do you understand your instructions?"
"I am not deaf," was the sullen re-
sponse.
"Answer my question, GGraice," said
Will, tingling with indignation, but
keeping his temper. There was a mno t
ment's silence, then-
"I s'.se I do."

THE ONLY True Blood Purifier
prominently in the public eye to-
day is Hood's Sarsaparilla. Therefore
getHood's and ONLY HOOD'S.
A King and His Crown.
The sovereign who makes use of his
c&own most frequently is that most
simple, unaffected and democratic of all
monarchs of Europe, King Oscar of
Sweden, who dons it each time that he
opens parliament at Stockholm or at
Christiania.
It scarcely adds to his appearance,
for it comes down too far over his nose,
and somewhat gives one the impression
of a derby hat worn on the back of the
head and pulled down over the ears.
Indeed it is only the king's majestic
stature and dignified bearing that pre-
serve him from looking ridiculous when
he has got it upon his head.
Americans are the most inventive peo:
ple on eirth. To them have been issued
nearly 600,000 patents, or more than one-
third of all the patents issued in the
world. No discovery of modern years has
been of greater benefit to mankind than
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhea
Remedy, or has done-more to relieve pain
and suffering. J. W. Vaughn, of Oakton,
Ky. says:
"I have used Chamberlain's Colic, Chol-
era and Diarrhea Remedy in my family for
several years, and find it to be the best
medicine I ever used for cramps in the
stomach and bowels.. For sale jby L M.
Ware & Co., St. Andrews and Bayhead,
and all medicine dealers.

The oldest tree in England is the yew,
tree at Braburn, in Kent, which is said


tobeA8,000 years old, while at Fortig-
1al, in Perthshire, is one nearly as old.
At Ankceryke House, near Staincs, is
a yew tree which was famous at the
date of the signing of Mauna Charta.

Twoyears ago R. J. Warren, a druggist
at Pleasant Brook, N. Y., bought a small
sunDly of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy.
Ee sums up the result as follows: "At
tfhat time the goods were unknown in this
section; today Chamberlain's Cough Roea-
edy is a household word." It is the same

Bodies Found.
Pensacola Morning Star April 9th.
Capt. George Perry and Fred
Reilly ot Perdido Bay, found at the
entrance to Perdido Bay two bodies
last Wednesday. Doubtless the
bodies are those of the small chil-
dren of John Constantine, of the
Amelia. The bodies were buried on
the beach as they had not heard of
the drowning. The infant's body was
on the east side and the older one on
the west side of the bay.
Capt. John T. Morricvy is in re-
ceipt of a letter from Mr. Henry D.
Pillichody, of Mobile, stating that a
body supposed to be Miss Neta
Stephuns, of the wrecked Amelia
was found on the beach near Ft.
Morgan and was interred in t. e mili-
tary grave-yard there. It was badly
decomposed. A finger ring and ear-
ring and some of the clothing was
sent to the probate Judge of Blald-
win county.
Capt. Morrisey notified Mr. Ben
Moates of the discovery, and he said
that it is probably the body of the
wife of John Constantine, as she
wVs the only one on board that wore
earrings.
Mr. Stephens is not in the city,
and is searching the west side of
Perdido Buy.
Personal
I. Godard of Carrabolle was an
arriving pa senge.i on the Alpha.
., (,,ard comes
in accordance notification frlm
the land department to defend the
charge made by some msalcious
minded persons that lie had abandon-
ed his honistead before making his
final proof. The Buoy opines that
Mr. Godard will have no trouble in
proving that lie acted in entire good
faith, and intended and does intend
to make it his home as soon as con-
ditions are such that lie can sustain
himself and family while so doing.
Mrs. L. Harrison who spends her
summers in Pcoria, ill., and her
winters at St. Andrews departed on
the Alpha, Saturday for the for.imer
place, being accompanied by Mrs.
Van Normand, a lady who ihas been
her guest during her stay here the
past winter.
Pensacola News: Capt. L. M.
\Vare of St. Andrews Bay, is in the
city, as guest of Alderman C. J.
Heir.berg.......Mr. William Stephens.
of St. Andlrews Bay, has gone to
Fort Morgan to-examine the body of
the lady found on the beach near
there a few days since. It is prob-
;able that the body is that of his wife
or daughter, who were drowned on
the sloop Amelia.


Deainess Cannot be Cured
by local applications as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the
mucous living of the Eustachian tube.
When this tube is inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and
when ii is entirely closed, Deafness is the
result, an- unless the inflammation can be
taken out and the tube restored to its
normal condition, hearing will be de-
stroyed forever; Line cases out of ten are
caused by Catarrh, which is nothing but
an inflamed condition of the mucous sur-
faces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for
any case of Deafness (caused by Catarrh)
that cannot be ci.red by Hall's Catarrh

Mrs. A. Inveen, residing at 720 Henry
St., Alton, Ill suffered with sciatic
rheumatism ior over eight months. She
doctored for it nearly the whole of this
time. using various remedies recommend-
ed by friends, and wos t.eatcd by the phy-
.'cians, but received no relief. She then
used one and a half bottles of Chaim
lain's Pain Balm, which effei ""
plete cure. This is .-'at her re-
quest, as she1 ra"rs similarly af-
flictedt .-nat cured her. he 2?5

Clock Inscriptions.
In former times it was the custom of
clockmakers to inscribe on the dial-
plates of their clocks quaint verse, one
of the most common being the follow-
ing:
I aerve thee here, with all my might,
To tell the hours by day, by night.
Therefore example take by me
To serve thy God as I serve thee."
Another favorite inscription was
"Tempus fugit," or "Time flies," and
thereby hangs a tale. A well known
English clockmaker who flourished to-
ward the close of the last century, on
being asked by a customer whether a
certain clock was of home manufacture,
replied: "Oh, certainly. Don't you see
the name, sir-Tuinmas Fugit? I often
have his clocks through my hands." -
Not exactly right is the way thousands
of people feel. It is because the blood is
poor. Hood's Sarsaparilla, the One True
Blood Purifier, will promply set them
right.
Hood's Pills cure nausen,sick headache,
indigestion, billiousness All druggists.

Incongruity.
The Mississippi river flows up hill.
Its mouth is higher than its source--
that is, farther from the center of the
earth, on account of the bulge of the
earth toward the equator.
Way will you buy bitter, nauseating
tonics when Grove's Tasteless Child Tonic
is as pleasant as Lemon Syrup. Your
druggist is authorized to refund the mon-
ey in every case where it fails to cure.

ORGANIZED JANUARY. 9 1892.

Te purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
T 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.
iThe 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 $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $,00 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, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and imany 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-
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 be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CO RRESPO ND EN CE SOLICITED.

The Governor's Message.
Governor Bloxham in his message
to the legislature of 1897, presents in
a concise and candid manner the
situation of affairs in the state, as-
sociating with it ample recommen-
dations for legislation, which if obey-
ed, will without doubt result in much
material good to the state. He ever
bears vividly in mind, and endeavors
to im} ress upon the members of the
legislature, that Florida is asoverign
state, and that her legislators are re-
sponsible to the people for any devi-
ations to which they may permit
themselves to fall victims.
The Governor expresses an earnest
desire for the legislature to make an
early and thorough investigation in-
to the cause which has resulted in the
loss of $30,000 by the failure of the
Merchant's National Bank of Ocala,
and extends the hand of hope to the
despairing who have become too
deeply alarmed by the long silence on
the part of those whose duty it is to
reader a suitable report concerning
the embarrassment.
lie also warmly commends the
state upon the progress she has made
with regards to education and the
universal advancement of her citi-
zens.
Should the legislature heed the
advice offered by Governor Blox-
ham, there can be little doubt that
Florida will do herself a living honor
by the legislation enacted by her
solons.

NOT HIS KIN.
How Davis Knew' the Other Davises Were
Miserable Impostors.
After supper, when the old man and
I had lighted our pipes, I remarked that


he was the fifth man of the name of
Davis whose hospitality I had enjoyed
in that locality during the week, and
after describing them I asked if they
were his relations, but he shook his
head, chuckled grimly and said:
"Right in this county, stranger,
thar's at least ten families named Da-
vis, but not a durned one of 'em is any
relashun to me 't all."
"Do you know them all personally?"
I asked.
"Yes, but we hain't onspeakin terms
now, and I'll tell you why. 'Bout five
y'ars ago, when I wuz mighty well
fixed, all the Davises in the world, it
seemed to me, begun to settle around
yore, and not a day passed that sum cf
'em didn't call and claim relashunship.
"And all of them impostors, oh?"
"Fur shore!" he exclaimed, warm-
ing up to his subject. "At fust I wuz
mighty glad to see 'em and reckoned
they mought be related to mo, but when
I'd bring up our family history they
knew nothing about it. They jest beat
around the bush until my last drap of
licker wuz gone and then took a scoot.
Why, it got so arter awhile that I had
to stand outside with a club all day
a-drivin Davis families away."
"How did you finally got rid of
them?"
"By jest tirin 'em out, I reckon.
When the Davises as hadn't bin yere
cum along, I'd shut 'em up with family
history, and when the Davises as bad
bin yore cum back fur more licker I'd
use the club. What convinced me more
than anything else that they wuzn't my
relashunswuz this: I had about a dozen
suckin pigs and seven or eight fine
calves on the place, and every time a
Davis went he took one of those pigs
with him."
"And that proved it, ch?" I asked as
he paused there.
"In course" he snapped. "Do you
s'pose one of my relashuns would stoop
as low as that? Waal, I reckon not,
stranger. One of my relashuns would
have taken a calf every timel, '


SKETCHES BY M. QUAD
An Ace Better.
One day there arrived at Prairie City
a man from Grizzly Gulch-a bold, bad
nan, with long hair, a voice like the
roar of a lion and a terrible thirst for
ich red blood. He stood on the public
square and whooped till he drew a
crowd. Then he flung down his hat and
cried out that Grizzly Gulch was full
of b'ars and rattlesnakes and centipeds
and alligators, but that every varmint
and reptile fled in terror at sound of his
footsteps. He said he had been scalped
by Indians, run over by wild horses,
struck by lightning, pursued by a prairie
ire and drawn down by quicksands, but
he still lived and was hungry for hu-
man ears fried in bacon grease. When
things went his way, he was as good
natured as a baby and would go a mile
out of his way rather than disturb a
sleeping coyote, but when things went
wrong, then look out! He could remem-
ber the names of 21 men he had buried,
and he had a poor memory at that. He
was naturally a peaceful man, but once
aroused he could not hold himself and
would not be responsible for damages.
The stranger continued talking in this
strain for a quarter of an hour, by
which time the crowd had taken his
measure. He had stopped for breath and
was getting ready to jump on his hat
again when a man who had been lean-
ing against the front of a shanty saloon
lounged over to him and drawled out:
"Stranger, whar did ye say ye hailed
from?"
"From Grizzly Gclch, sir, and Griz-
zly Gulch is the beginning of Fightin
creek '"
"And ye've killed men?"
"Acres of 'em."
"And held towns?" "
"A dozen of 'em."
"And yer name? What might yer
name be?"
"My name? Whoop! Thar ain't a crit-
ter in this hull kentry what don't trem-
ble when he hears it! My name, sir, ar'
Three Ace Jim."
"S-o?" drawled the Prairie City man.
"Waal, I'm sorry fur ye, really sorry."
"Don't f'o fur to rile me!" shouted
the stranger as he flung his arms about.
"Who be ye that ye ar' Eorry fur Three
Ace Jim!"
"I'm Four Ace Jack," replied the
other as ha pulled a gun and touched
the stranger's nose with the muzzle,
"and as four aces allus beats three I
reckon ye'd better travel I"''
"Say," said the man from Grizzly
Gulch after a long look around, "I've
got pressing bizness over at Cedar City,
and if this yore crowd will kindly ex-
cuse me I'll be going "
We watched him until he was half a
mile away-watched him, with no man
speaking a wcrd. Then the man with
the gun restored it to its holes lf
started back for the saloon uit i c
muttered exclamation:
"Bah He was only a duffer."
Obuging a Schoolmaa'am.
A schoolma'am had arrived at the
frontier town to begin her duties, and
the dozen men who saw her get out of
the stage and enter the hotel agreed
that she w.s young and good looking;
also that she was probably nervous,
and that the boys hadn't ought to do
any shooting on that first night and
keep her awakp. The girl was at supper
when Bill Green entered the room, cap
in hand, introkoed himself, and added:
"Thar's a cr d r in town named Joe
Goss, and I'veisaid I'd shoot him on
sight. Being t-s it might disturb ye,
however, I'll put the shooting off fur a
day or two."
The schoolma'am thanked him with
all her heart, and he withdrew, but she
had only retired to the sitting room
when Bill reappeared'to say:
"Thar's a duffer in town who says he
kin make me eat dirt. Hev ye any ob-
jeckshuns to my standing up to him?"
"Would there be a quarrel?" she
asked.
"Sartinly, ma'am."
"And shooting?"
"'Of course."
"Then I wish you wouldn't."
"All right, ma'am, all right. Fur
yer sake I'll let him bluff me tonight
and pop him tomorrer. "
She expressed her deep sense of obli-
gation, and he retired, but ten minutes
later he re-entered to say:
"A galoot named Jim Whoelan has
lent me word that he kin break me in
two and will be along purty soon to do
it. Would ye mind if I lit on to him?"
"Would it be a fight?" she asked.
"Yes, a powerful fight. "
'.'Then, I hope you won't."
"All right, ma'am, all right. I've
allus bin a gentleman and allus hope to


be."
She thought she had seen the last of
Bill for that night, but she hadn't. She
was being shown to her room when he
met her in the hall and anxiously said:
"Thar's a wall eyed heathen out
yere who needs shooting, but I won't do
it tonight on account of ye. I'd lke
to ax yo, however, if I might take three
drinks at the bar?"
"But you might get drunk."
"Oh, no. I'll take three drinks and
then fling my hat down and jump on
it."
"But no quarreling."
"No, ma'am. I'll jump on my hat
and hoot, and some cuss will tackle me,
and I'll chaw his ears off and gouge his
eye out, and ye won't hear a sound or
lose a wink of sleep. All right, nma'a m,
all right. I'm a gentleman an ye ar' a
lady, and things shall go off as slick
as grease, or I'll kill five or Eix mten
and know the reason why."

appropriately appeared last week with

oversight in the mechanical depart-
ment that arrangement was not carried
out.]
ILatin and Italian.
Several hundred writers on the sub-
ject claim that the Italian, with such
changes as naturally come about in the
course of ages, has always been the lan-
guage of the common people living in
the boot shaped peninsula. Those writers
assert that Latin was the language of
literature, the law and the educated
clasCes, while Italian was spoken by the
people.
