False or True.
Written for the Buor.
A low, broad brow and laughing eyes,
And darkly waving hair,
That hangs, half curling, 'round a face
Bewitching and so fair.
A winning voice, like music's tone,
Beguiling every fear--
As soft as winds on April morn-
Yet toned in accents clear.
Ahl bright, sweet face, whose winsome
Has thrilled me through and through;
Ah! blue eyes like a summer s'ky;
Will she be false or true?
On a Sunset.
Written for the Buor.
There are clouds of amber and gold in
Beautiful clouds are they,
When the sun has softly cradled to rest
At the close of this golden day.
But they fade and they die, those gor-
They fade to a leaden hue;
As ev'ning comes down with her sombre
And bids the parting day adieu. e
The soft winds sigh like an unseen i
And the glit'ring stars I see;
As the night, with its shadows chill and
Enshrouds the world and me.

DeFuniak Herald: The St. Andrews
BuoY is greatly wrought up over the
proposed county, Kirby. If the BuoY
is in the same road it traveled previous
to last November, we should say Kirby
county must be a good thing.
The above surreptitious thrust at
the BUoY's support ot sound money
is somewhat surprising, coming as it
does from a publication whose record
is widely known; with whose reason
for change the public is too thorough-
ly conversant. Should the Buoy
prefer it could reply at length, but
the growing drama has outgrown
such toys, and the remark will suf-
fice, that the BuoY's reader, at least
always know the attitude which it
holds upon public issues, which, to
say the least, marks a forcible con-
trast to the reputation of the esteemed i
The Arbitration Bill's Defeat.
Some surprise may be expressed
when the action of the United States
senate upon the Aibitration Bill is
learned, from the fact that a:l who
held the peaceful and amicable rela-
tions of great powers in reverence
were almost a unit in its support.
The spirit of jingoism that fre-
qnently asserts itself in the senate,
has again manifested iti presence to
a most disgusting degree; those old
prejudices that conservative people
presumed long buried again arose to
the surface and caused the defeat of
one of the most beneficient proposi-
tions maie n modern tiines, wnich
had as its object the settlement of
national disputes without the loss of
life. England's friendly attitude
toward the question appears to have
been the sole provocation which
caused ita defeat, as the fact is well
known that there exists in the United
States senate a contingency who are
unreasonably averse to any question
to which Great Britain exhibits a
The Railroad Commission.
Combination of populistic ideas
have prevailed in the present session
of the legislature to the extent of (
reacting a railroad commission, and
t is to be sincerely hoped that those I
vhose object it was to curtail the C
progress of the state both financially
,nd industrially will be gratified to the l
highest possible degree.
Surprising facts have crept to the t
surface during the consideration of d
he measure, in each of the respective )
ranches of the state congress. Men r
ave demonstrated by the support ct o
his piece of malfeasance, that they g
refer to sacrifice the interest of their o
usitess in order to reap individual w
While the proposals of the present tl
aw are moderately fair, owing to the b
act that Florida possesses a conser- c
ative chief executive, the fact yet e
remains that there is ample margin ti
r injustice to be meted upon tie d
scension to supremacy of a governor o
s severely afflicted by populistic
leas as are several present legisla-
ors who pose as democrats.
It has never been the ambition of u
be democratic party to antagonize ta
business until their attempted pacifi- tl
action of populists by lending an ear ol
o their incessant cries of oppression ii
nd injustice, and the more readily tc

Recent dispatches from Greece in-
icate that the little nation is con-
ending against too formidable oppo- th
tion, and that in a few da s she
ust eyacuate Crete, and leave the

Truly the valor demonstrated by cis
reece is commendable, yet her lack di
policy is not such as to merit
aise. Patriotism in Greece is ap-
irently one of those bygone glories, of
id now only remains in the odes of

n histories. While the poet Byron u

a ecstacy. The troops of King he

the political arena ever since those
old historic days when it discussed
the rigft ,f unconditional emancipa-
tion of slavery; through the stirring
times of reconstruction has the Reg-
ister been a constant servant of the
best class of American society. Yet
events shaped themselves so as to
cause a slight variation in that
course to appear imperative and un-
,ioidable, thus Alahania's great
jou-nal, with many other southern
publications, at least, ostensibly
chased the Bryan shadow across the
desolate silvery 'escrtiif.~-t ludiatiui,
which has at the end resulted in
nothing more than a pursuit for the
end of the rainbow, and after return-
ing, breathless and disappointed, has
eventually learned the lesson taught
those who follow mirages-that of
expiation-the retribution has been
meted in the form ot an unalloyed
illustration of true democracy; not
the democracy of Bryan, Tillman and
Altgeld, nor that of Kolb or John-
son, but the democracy for which the
Register had labored so incessantly
luring those long months preceding
the convention of the democratic
coleseum into a populist revival.
Yet "mercy endureth forever," man's
probationn is not limited at a pro-
lestined point; what has gone wrong
nay be righted by an irrevocable reso-
ution of reform.
It is is to be devoutly hoped that
he errors of the Florida legislature
luring the present session may be
productive of equally as beneficial
results; i. e., by forcing upon several
f the prodigal journals an undis-
guised designation of the principles
f true democracy, and thus restore
within the folds of the primitive party
hose who have lately deviated from
he path of rectitude, lured thither
y the evanescent dazzle of the silver
Ihimera. A ready welcome will be
extended to the truants, and their
transgression will be gunEiruoul c A

hos. Jefferson to be universally d

The Gillie's Excuse.
It is well known that the queen has a
dislike to the smell of tobacco, and even
such a constant smoker as the Prince of
Wales is careful to deodorize himself as
much as possible before being received
by his royal mother. Perhaps the late
John Brown took her majesty's aversion
more coolly than any one else, for his
sporran was always crammed with a
mixture peculiarly black and strong.
On one occasion the late Duke of
Sutherland sent some live deer to Wind-
sor under the charge of his head keeper,
who, having seen his charges safely
housed, foregathered with Brown, and
smoke and whisky speedily combined in
no small quantities. While the carouse
was progressing John was hastily sum-
moned to the queen's presence, and
away he went without changing his
clothes. His sovereign lady soon detect-
ed the peccant odor and reproached
Brown with it.
"Hechl Your majesty," said Brown,
"it's nae my fault. It's joost 'contact'
with the duke's keeper." He was for-
given on the spot.--London Telegraph.
Queer Language. *
The Saturday Review says that when
he was in Egypt Mark Twain hired two
Arab guides to take him to the pyra-
mids. He was familiar enough with
Arabic, he thought, to understand and
be understood with perfect case. To his
Consternation he found that he could
not comprehend a word that either of
the guides uttered. At the pyramids he
met a friend, to whom he made known
his dilemma. It was very mysterious,
-Twain thought. "Why, the explanation
is simple enough," said the friend.
"Please enlighten me, then," said
Twain. "Why, you should have hired
younger men. These old fellows have
lost their teeth, and, of course, they
don't speak Arabic. They speak gum-
A WonAerful Scholar.
Antonio Magjiabeechi, the famous
Florentine scholar, was remarkable not
only for the amount and variety of his
knowledge-for he knew accurately 60
different languages-but also for his in-
cessant labors as a student and libra-
rian. "He usually passed the whole
night in study and when exhausted na-
ture demanded rest a straw chair served
for a couch and an old threadbare cloak
for a coverlet."'
The people living at Peak's island,

Mr. James Rowland, of this village,
states that for twenty-five years his wife
has been a sufferer from rheumatism. A
few nights ago she was in such nain that
she was nearly crazy. She sent Mr.
Rowland for the doctor, but he had read
of Chamberlain's Pain Balm and instead
of going for the physician he went to the
store and secured a bottle of it. His wife
did not approve of Mr. Rowland's pun-
chase at first, but nevertheless applied
the Balm thoroughly and in an hour's
time was able to go to sleep. She now
applies it whenever she feel an ache or
a pain and finds that it always gives re-
lief. He says that no medicine which
she had used ever did her as much good.

The Modern Babel.
Professor Mahaffy, in The Nineteenth
Century, explains how French might
have been the international medium of
language, but bow commerce in a cer-
tain way has banged all this:
If the old Frenoh monarchy and aris-
tocracy had ndt been swept away by
the terrible revolution, if France had
"- u~.m.l~ned her primacy in courtliness
and had not for a time become the
dread and the horror of all Europe, it is
quite possible that French might have
become the exclusive international me-
dium. But the mercantile preponder-
ance of England and the national an-
tagonism of Germany raised up rivals
to her supremacy. And since the asser-
tion of nationality was identified with
the speaking of a special language all
hope of any agreement has disappeared.
When I was young, it was fairly as-
asumed that a working knowledge of
English, French and German would
open to the student all the stores of Eu-
ropean learning. Nothing can now be
further from the truth. Not only are
there scientific and literary works of in-
ternational importance-I exclude mere
poetry and small talk-in Italian and
Greek, and far more in Dutch, but there
are mines of knowledge only to be
reached by acquiring Russian and Hun-
garian. I am told that the geological
and zoological observations over the
huge 'area of Asiatio Russia are now
published in Russian Transactions. I

The Case of State Treasurer
The investigation instigated by
the legislature in the case of State
Treasurer Collins, with regard to the
loss of state funds through the fail-
ure of the Merchants National Bank
of Ocala, has resulted in the develop-
ment of several strange facts.
It appears that Mr. Collins was
thoroughly conversant with the un-
sound condition of the bank long
prior to its failure and that he (Col-
lins,) MeConnell and J. N. C. Stock-
ton were united in the attempt to
bear up the unsound institution, and
that Mr. Collins appropriated state
funds for this purpose, with the con-
stant knowledge that the bank might
close its doors at any time.
The legislature investigation conm-
mitte has found Mr. Collins guilty of
a shortage of $50,981, and conse-
quently request his resignation. In
the failure of Mr. Collins to comply
with this demand the legislature is to
take immediate steps toward his. re-

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.
Tu accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of each tract so' disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
As TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION
The first question which will naturally be asked will be: "ls 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 attheir 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 ofana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; *ost of planNng 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 $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, Japan. chestnuts, pecans, and many other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buor will in its answers to correspondents an-
Swer all questions asked it.
.R E M E M B E R the Association Lands willbe sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that the work has been performed. CO0 RRE S PO NDEN C E SO LIC ITE D.

WThat we Inherit
We are not to blame for. We can
not be held responsible for the dispo-
sitions and tendencies which we de-
rive from our ancestors, nor are we
responsible for the germs of disease
which may manifest themselves in
our blood as a heritage from former
generations. But wt'are responsible
if we allow these rniss to develop
into serious diseases 'which will im-
pair our usefulness ard destroy our
happiness. We are responsible if
we transmit to our descendents the
disease germs which it is possible for
us to eradicate by the use of Hood's
Sarsaparilla, the one true blood puri-
fier. This medicine has power to
make rich, red blood and establish
perfect health in place of disease.
How Bees Gather Honey.
Bees gather honey by the aid of their
"trunk," "lower lip" or "tongue,"
which is used as an instrument for ex-
tracting the nectar from flowers. The
"tongue" of a bee is not, as was once
thought to be the case, a tube through
which the juice is sucked, but is built
more after the fashion of a fine broom.
With this broom the bee brushes or laps
the honey or honey material from the
flowers, leaves, etc., and passes it down
a groove in the upper surface of the
tongue to the mouth proper. From that
point the juice is conveyed through a
minute orifice into the "first stomach,"
vulgarly called the "honey bag." The
"honey bag" is a real chemical labora-
tory, where, by some mysterious process
which has not yet been explained bJ
science, the juices are converted into
pure honey. When the chemical process
of transforming their nectar into viscid
honey has been completed, the bee dis-
gorges it into one of thecells made for
the purpose of a receptacle.
For years the microscopists and the
entomologists have been studying the
bee's laboratory, but its workings are
at present among the unexplained mys-
teries.-St. Louis Republic.

The Ways of Indian Medicine Men.
Major A. E. Woodson, agent of the
Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians of Ok-
lahoma, says that the reign of the med-
icine men is one cf ihe greatest outrages
of the present day, and as a direct re-
sult of their pernicious practice one-third
of the children born of Indian parents
die every year.
Two of Black Coyote's children were
taken sick, and, instead of taking them
to the government hospital, he sent for
the medicine man, who blew a green
powder into the lungs, ears and the
nostrils of one of the little patients.
That medicine failing, the medicine
man made all incision with his knife
under the tongue of the child, with the
result that death soon followed. When
the green powder failed to restore the
child to health, the medicine man de-
clared that there was a ghost under the
child's tongue, and it was to kill the
ghost that he made the incision.
The medicine man then adopted he-
roic measures in order to save the other
child. He took it into a tent, stripped
it naked and laid it on a cot. He then
heated a big pile of rocks in the tent
and when they were hot he threw water
on them, filling the tent with steam
and causing the child to sweat copious-
ly. When the child was covered with
perspiration, he took it out in the cold
air and sent it home without having
taken any precaution to keep it from
getting cold. Next morning the child
was dead. This is only one of the hun-
dreds of such outrages against the health
and life of innocent people. The big
medicine man of the Cheyennes is Little
Man, who lives near Cantonement. He
makes his medicines every year and dis-
tributes them to the other medicine
Abuse of the Eyesight.
In the waiting room of an up town
physician sat, one morning, a dozen
persons trying to read. The windows
were draped with heavy lace curtains,
the dull yellow shades were drawn
down to within about a yard of the bot-
tom of the long windows, and as the
day was cloudy the light in the room
was a very subdued twilight. Finally a
late comer had the courage-it required
some, everything was so very quiet and
irreproachable-to go to the hall and
ask the dress suited dooropener to come
and raise the shades. This he at once
did and turned on as well the electric
lights in the back part of the room, to
the great betterment of the reading
light. Which little incident is cited to
emphasize what an oculist characterizes
as the reckless abuse of the eyesight
which in these days has assumed the
proportions of an evil.
"On street and railway cars, in libra-
ries, schools, offices, homes, everywhere,
eyes are unnecessarily tried," he says,
Switch the result that half the world is
in glasses years before the need should
arise. It is so usual a thing now for
persons to be afflicted with ocular head-
aches, that when a physician's advice is
sought for a persistent and unexplained
headache the patient is first turned
over to an oculist. Nine times out of
ten defective vision sufficient to produce
the disturbance is found, and seven
times out of ten the sufferer is the vic-
tim of his own want of care in the use
of his eyes. Women are frequent sinners
in this respect; they protect their com-
plexions in every possible way, while to
the delicate organ of sight they give
never a thought till the mischief is
done.'"-New York Post.
Didn't Understand English.
A Chinaman was once "hauled up"
before a magistrate in Sydney, New
South Wales, and charged with some
offense. In reply to his worship's usual
query as to whether he pleaded guilty
or not, he would only answer:
"Me no sabeel Me no talkee Eng-
The magistrate, however, who was
quite accustomed to the proceeding on
the part of many Celestials who came be-
fore him, turned d to him and said:
"That answer won't do for me. > You
know English well enough, I'll be
"Me no sabee-me no sabee!" were
the only words to be drawn from obsti-
nate Ohinkey, and, no Chinese interpre-
ter being in court, the magistrate, tak-
ing the matter into his own hands, di-
rected the case to be proceeded with as
if the accused had pleaded not guilty.
After hearing the evidence of the
witnesses the accused was fined $10 and
The clerk to the bench, who was a
bit of a wag, called out to the accused:
"John, you are fined $25 and costs."
"No, no!" promptly replied the non-
English speaking Chinese. "He say me
fined only $10 and costs."-Chicago
Settling a Bet.
The quiet of the room in which the
answers to queries editor sat was dis-
turbed by the entrance of two half
One of them ,pulled off his hat and
addressed him: .
"Me and this felier have made a bet,"
he said, "and we've agreed to leave it
to you. He bets that if all the turkeys
that was ett last Christmas was placed
in a line they would reach around the
world, and I bet they wouldn't. Who's
"You have, my son," answered the
man in the chair. "They might be
placed a mile apart and they would still
be in a line, you know. "
As they turned and went out of the
room the boy who had acted as spokes-
man was seen to hand a small coin over
to the other with great reluctance, and
distinctly heard to say:
"Well, I can lick you, anyhow."
"Bet you a nickel on that, too," re-
plied the other boy.-Chicago Tribune.
Won't Find Him.
"Buy your wheel from me, sir," said
an enterprising dealer to a prospective
customer, "and I will make you a pres-
ent of a cyclometer."
"You are not the man I am looking

to find a seller of cyclometers who will
throw in a bicycle. "--Harper's Bazar.
