(CONTINUED FROM LAST WEEK.)
But we must retrace our steps before leaving East Bay and take a
stroll up Laird's Mill Bayou; first however, looking in at the new general
merchandise store of the Poore Brothers. opposite the mouth of Wetappo
Creek, near the head ot East Bay. These gentlemen located at this point
about two years ago, and have built up a flourishing and quite profitable
business and are apparently well satisfied with their venture.
To the east. of Barnt Mill or Laughton Bayou there is a plat which ex-
tends about 300 yards inland from the sore line and about a quarter of a
mile along the shore, and then comes Little Boggy, and next Big Boggy
Bayous. These two bayous drain the country for six miles north of East
Bay, ard ever go to Mr. Gillespie's homestead. They are crossed by the
road from St. Andrews to the Dead Lakes. The shore from Boggy to the
mouth of Laird's Mill is all sand and is about a mile in extent, and on
the west sid3 of Laird's Mill is another flat called Bald Point; the east side I
is guarded by Sand Point and has a good landing for a schooner. This
point has the deepest and best landing east of Long Point. It is the home-
stead of Mr. Fowler, who is an expert fisherman and a good farmer. The
Laird Mill Bayou is a surprise in itself; you do not dream ol any break in
the shore as you pi! c ra t f'rm .. ,- ; y'ou ,1' f",!t tlh '. .rken.
shore from the angle of Pickleen Bayou to Mr. Tipton'. oiiuse and on to
Piney Point; but as you round the flat of Bald Point you are suddenly con-
froited with an opening-a large cave, while inside there is a perfect cross,
made by three distinct bayous uniting with each other. One points north,
another south and the third east, with the bay as a base. This bayou
drains the land for five miles to the north of East Bay, while the elevation
is gradually increased as you go inland.
Next to J. J. Fowler's is the lived-out homestead of C. P. Lynch and
further to the east are the homes of William Oliver and Isaac But-
ler, while the west side is cultivated by a Mr. Brown, Mr. B. Swear-
ingen, and the Mrs. Sylvani police, and the old Dr. Jansenius place,
since sold to a party in Birmingham, Ala., upon which the Doctor expend-
ed large sums in improvements. On the same side and east of the Janse-
uins place is the well cultivated home of A. T. Collom, who has expe.;ded
a small fortune upon his plate, North of Collom's is the plantation of
Emil T. Schmidt, a most progressive man, and an evidence of Mr. Schmidt's
and Mr. C llorn's enterprise is the fine new school house-one of the best
in the county, built a year or two ago.
The site of the old mill is on the west side near the mouth of the bayou.
There was a salt factory next to the mill, the pit of which is still there,
filled with strong brine. About three miles up the bayou there used to be
another mill, which used water for a motive power. There is a large,
strong stream of fresh water there; it i3 sixteen feet deep and about one
hundred feet wide. The site of the mill is upon land formerly belonging to
J. J. Calloway late of Chipley, and the banks of the stream are in some
places ten feet higher than high water mark, and are composed of good red-
brick clay.
Should a railroad be built from the north to the Dead Lakes, St. Joseph
and Apalachicola, it must of a necessity run over this bayou. 'Thee is
an abundance of heavy pine timber all around, and ve y good boards, ten
feet long have frequently been made here by the old process of splitting. It
is well drained by this most extensive waterway, which is formed by the
conjunction of ten fresh-water streams, all pouring down from increasing
elevations, and some coming eighteen miles from their source.
Smaller boats can go up the Laird Mill for about six miles and the larg-
est boats that touch St. Andrews can easily navigate it for one mile.
It is about twelve miles trom St. Andrews by land in a direct line and
eighteen by water.
There ae several fine oyster bars in this bayou, and more than 100,000
oysters were taken from one bar within two months and were not missed.
There is a fine shelter here for the oyster' he is at home between fresh and
salt water, and here the opportunities for his development are admirable.
There are many deep holes in the bayou where the fi h collect during the
two winter month,; of December and January, and when the water in the
bay is low and fish scarce, the angler can fill his basket, and when the bay
is in bad humor the wild duck will be found by hundreds in the many
streams contributory to Laird Mill Bayou. It is an established fact that
the children will catch fish enough for the family table at their very doors,
and when tired of tiout, the father's cast-net will, in an hour or two cap-
ture enough mullet for a two days supply.
NORTH BAY.
No less pronounced have been the changes and improvements now seen
along North Bay. Rounding Dyer's Point a picturesque scenery greets us
as we progress, and passing Big Oyster Bar, one of the most famous depos-
ites of the luscious bivalve, houses and homes are reached at short inter-
vals. Opposite Fanning Bayou, on the south Pide of the bay, Mr. Jno. Ste-
phens, who divides his time between fishing and farming, is making for
himself a comfortable and pleasant home. Across the bay is the mouth of
Fanning Bayou and near its head is Anderson with one store, postoffice,
school and several dwellings, the finest of which is the elegant mansion


Death is Kind.
Written for the Buor.
Sweet lies the little child; his day is
gone;
Whispered his prayer and lain him
down to rest;
He fell asleep, our well beloved one,
Upon death's peaceful breast.
Death closed his eylids down all ten-
derly,
And left him with his dear face all
ashine,
Lit with a heavenly radiance, that we
Might know death was divine.
He fell asleep in mother nature's lap;
The happy son, with pure and stain-
less neart,
Oh! patn t, death-safe is be-no mis--

Ca' touch him where thou art.
He was a little child, most innocent,
In love's own .keeping; therefore it
were mete
That he should thus go wandering con-
tent,
Into the dreamland sweet.
He is not dead! for children never die,
Until the lips of summer winds grow
mute; i
Their songs still tinkle softly down the
sky,
Like lyrics of a lute.
Nearer to earth shall heaven hence-
forth seem;
Since somewhere yonder his dear face
shall be;
Oh, death, thou -must be kinder than
we deem,
Else were he spared by thee.
-E. A. EMMONS.

Do It Now.
Written for the Buoy.
If you have a kind word, say it;
Throbbing hearts soon sink to rest.
If you owe a kindness, pay it;
Life's sun hastens to the west.
Can you do a kind deed, do it,
From despoir some soul to save;
Bless each day as you pass through it;
You are marching to the grave.
If some great thing for tomorrow,
You are planning, do it now;
From the future do not borrow;
Frost soon gathers on the brow.
Speak thy word, perform thy duty;
Night is coming with its rest;
Stars will gleam in fadeless beauty,
Grasses waver o'er thy breast.

REPRESENTATIVE Spencer of Cal-
houn county has introduced a bill-
No. 389: An act defining the bound-
ary between Calhoun and Washing-
ton counties.

SENSATION was created in the
state senate one day last week by the
preferring of serious charges against
President Clute, of the State Agri-
cultural College at Lake City.

A CORRFSIONDENT from Verlnon
takes the populist party to task for
attempting to indict democrats before
the grand jury for frauds in last fall's
election. Never mind them, brother;
every little by-play like this by the
populist leaders only helps to weaken
their )anks and teach the democrats,
as the Buoy has all aonig contended
that, it was not wise or safe for the
democratic party to use populistic
bait if it wished to catch wholesome
fish.


JOHNSON county is only another
name for Kirby county and it will
probably meet the same fate that be-
fel its unfortunate predecessor.

WHATEVER iray be the outcome of
the Triay-Chipley-Stockton letter,
no stigma can possibly lie against Col.
Chipley, who never saw, read, or
acted upon its suggestions.

THERE is one ray (f hope left for
"Florida's prosperity and that is that
the courts will decide that the new
railroad commission law interferes
with inter-state ciiiiiIierce ani is
T 1i | | * .t .. t .' ~

CITIZEN: Mr. Stockton says an "of-
ficer" handed him the letter. Who
is the officer? What kind uf an offi-
cer? The people of Jacksonville
want to know his name and position
it: the community. If lie belongs to
the police force the commissioners
owe the public an immediate investi-
gation. It is due to the police force,
too, for there are many honorable po-
licemen who want to locate the man
among their number who would be
guilty of such an act. The innocent
should be believed as soon as possible
of the slightest suspicion.

Soundr Money Sentimernt in the
South Growing.
Former Congressman W. D. By-
nnm, chairman of the Sound Money
Democratic National Committee, who
has been speaking in the south against
flee silver, said in Columbus, S. C.,
that he had met with great encour-
agement.
"I have been surprised" he declar-
ed, "at the magnitude of the sound-
money sentiment in the south. The
free-silver sentiment is by no means
as strong as in the west. I shall
perhaps make a more extensive tour
through the south in the fall. I shall
return to Indianapolis from here, and
shall probably remove the headquar-
ters of the national committee to
New York about June 1."

Working for Tariff Reformn as
Opposed to the Dingley Bill.
New York World.
The Tariff Reform committee of
the Reform Club, of which former
Congressman John DeWitt Warner
is the leading spirit, has determined
to open headquarters in Washington
at once and conduct a short and vig-
orous campaign against the Dingley
tariff bill.
Their principal idea In attacking
the pending measure is that it is a
trust protector rather than a protec-
tion to American industry, or a bill
to raise neeseaary revenues. Theii
statisticians are already P;reparing
figures to show that monopoly will
get far more benefit from the measure
than will the people.
One of the purposes of the commit-
tee is to get together a body of rep-
resentative,business men and appear
for various trades and manufacturers.


built a yeai or two ago of Capt. S. W. Anderson, while that of his son, J.
W. Anderson, near the mouth of the bayou, while not quite so prominlet a
feature, is nevertheless a roomy modern dwelling and standing fronting the
bay, as it does, every boat that passes is in full view. Leaving Fanning
Bayou and passing Grassy Point and the farms of R. W. Gay and L. C.
Gay, we reach the handsome home of ex-County Assessor A. J. G. Gay,
and here as at Anderson we; find a commodious modern home, with all the
conveniences and conditions to make life there desirable. Mr. Gay, when
he has time to farm does so upon scientific principles, and evidences of his
remarkable success have often been exhibited in St. Andrews. Here it was
that t\o years ago the finest and largest peaches ever seen by the writer
(and his observation has niot been limited) were producAd, and samples
sent to Atlanta and still to be seen in the WeSt Florida exhibit in Pensa-
cola, surpass anything in thi collection of peaches shown there. A near
neighbor and relative of Mr..G.ay, rThomas Collier, lives jnst across a small
bayou, and he also is one of the thrifty farmers and prosperous men of tihe
county, and his home r1I.ting the bay presents a pretty picture. From Gay
after a mile or two of tl:;i\el \\o pass the home of Mr. Spiva, another farm-
er who is carving a fine honwi out of the piney woods, and there seems no
good reason why in the no distant future his pIl:ice slhiould not be a valua-
ble one. Our next point of particular interest. is a-cri.,- the bay at the set-
tlement and sawmill plant of the North Bay Lumber company, owned anid
operated by C. Tompkins & Co. These gentlemen are enterprising noithi-
erners from away back in Connecticut, and with correct business principles,
genuine Yankee grit and universally courteous treatment of patrons and
everyone an extensive business is being conducted.
In sight of this mill and just across the bay, diagonally is Bayhead and
here the wilderness has within the past few years been converted into a
thriving businie's mart. L. M. Ware & Co., of St. Andrews, realizing that
by establishing a branch of their store here they could more easily accom-
modate their large and growing fish industry, built a large and commodi-
ous store building and surrounded it with enclosures, fish houses. barns
and sheds for the accommodation of their patrons, and. as many miles of
travel are saved to haulers of fish, they were quick to take advantage of the
opportunity and the business of the firm has. been highly satisfactory from
the start, and Bavhead as an attractive point of interest ranks second to
none in the whole county.
[CONTINUED NEXT WEEK.]


lies and whisky, others were scurrying
up and down the valley, routing out the
ranchmen, settlers and "hustlers" and
warning them to be in readiness to
gather at the given signal, for there
was no telling what would be the first
consequence of their diplomacy. If Big
Road simply broke camp and started
with his whole village in the dead of
night in hopes of leading the soldiers a
stern chase to the Big Horn, they could
stumble in his way, impede his flight
and bring on a row in which, with vast-
ly superior numbers, they could at least
rob the red men of their pony herd.
That would be part satisfiution for the
death of Laramieo 'ote. '.'hen, when tt ~


CONTINUEDD]
"Big Road's compliments-I mean,
the lieutenant's compliments, sir-and
Big Road sends his delegation for three
wagon loads of meat, flour, sugar and
coffee, sir, and says as the colonel hasn't
bome to see him he's going to move."
The colonel laughed-the first laugh
since Christmas, somebody remarked at
the time. "Are you sure there's no mis-
take, Fallen?" he asked the messenger.
"That's what the lieutenant asked
the Indians, iir, but we have two of
'L' troop with n--what's left of 'em
-one Brule and t'other Ogalalla, and
they both translate it the same-way, and
Bat is with us, too, sir and he says it's
like Big Road when he gets liquor in
him. He thinks he's lord of the earth.
Bat says he's drunk now, and believes
the colonel will be glad to do as he de-
mands for fear of him."
"Well, who brought the message?
Who's that big buck in the lead there?"
"That's One Eyed Bull, sir-him
that was nursed in the hospital here
after the fight three years ago. "
"Bull? He ought to kn(v better than
to bring any such message," said Fen-
ton reflectively. "I presume he dare
not refuse, however. Mr. Adjutant,
mount Fallon's horse, gallop out there,
and tell Bull to tell Big Road to go to
the devil. That's all on that head. Cap-
tain Farwell, as soon as your men have
had supper let them saddle and be ready
for night work. Orderly, have my horse
sent up in half an hour. That's all for
the present, gentlemen. Come, Jack-
Lou's waiting dinner for us. "
It was the first time that any one had
seen Fenton mad, as Amory put it,
when the group broke up. "Either Big
Road will come down off that high
horse or the old man will snatch him,
and within the next few hours too.
Ormsby brings us luck. He never comes
out here that we don't have a shindy of
some kind."
Moru than on:, (ifc'er was thinking of
this remark .of Amury's as they scattered
co their hlome. Many a dinner was kept
waiting and many a house ifa had to
be placat.t-d v.h.eu the lord and master
hurried iu, and tongues that were primed
SX'itI wif 'lv eiIrr'onl r rr ifle-td l .y th- .
tidings that quickly F-rend from door to
door. Big Road had made an insolent I
demand and coupled with it a defiant I
message. Big Road was drunk and had
threatened to move with his village,
and then it would become the duty of
the Twelfth to surround and herd him
back. Under the stipulation of a late
treaty he was allowed for his winter
range only the south bank of the Platte,
from Frayne to the breaks of the Medi-
cine Bow. If he crossed the Platte and
struck out for the Big Horn, he invaded
the cattle lands and laid himself open
to attack from the hustlers. If he
dove into the mountain range to the
south, he left his reservation and for-
feited the rations and supplies which
the agent at Fetterman Bend was bound
to issue at regular intervals. He had
quarreled with the agent and moved his
village up stream to within ten miles of
Frayne-which he had a right to do.
He had quarreled with-and on good
grounds-the cowboys and then been
taken under the wing of Uncle Sam for
safety, and now be proposed quarreling
with his benefactors and launching out
on forbidden territory, and that meant
business for all at Frayne.
But One Eyed Bull was no truculent
warrior. He had delivered his message
in accordance with his chief's demands,
and in far more civil tone and terms
than it was consigned to him, then had
waited in dignified silence, confronting
the somewhat flippant bluecoats from
the fort, refusing to make any response
to the jocularity and ridicule in which
some of their number indulged or to
enter into any discussion with Bat or
the two Indian soldiers as to the prob-
able inspiration of Big Road's bombast.
Well enough he realized when the adju-
tant arrived upon the scene that the
"bluff" had totally failed, and before a
word was spoken read contemptuous re-
fusal in the young officer's face. They
were indeed cold and hungry over in
the village, and h himself and the war-
riors with him would have been glad of
a feast on armray rations.
Nor were the warriors at all satisfied
with the judgment and discretion of
their chief, but one and all the Indians
were now imbued with the warning of
their medicine men and expected
nothing less than some sudden act of
hostility on the soldiers' part. If there
ever was a time in Big Road's history
when a clear head and cool brain were
needed, it was now, just when he had
succeeded in getting drunk, and well
had the cowboys reasoned. While some
of the number lured the chief to the
banks of the Platte andl plied him with


"Well, that's just it. Those fellows

solalers came up, they could sail in aft-
er them and claim such spoil as was
worth having and all the credit of hav-.
ing brought the chief to bay. If, on the
other hand, Big Road became so crazed
with their firewater as to go down and
beard the lion in his den and defy th4
cavalry at the fort, then there might
be a pretty scrimmage right over on the
flats when the colonel ordered' the
chief's arrest, and when the soldiers
were tackling the warriors in the open
and having a nip and tuck fight of it
the frontiersmen could surround the vil-
lage and help themselves. There would
be only old men and women and children
to defend it. There was gloom, there-
fore, in Bull's sole remaining optic as
he received in majestic silence the adju-
tant's indignant rendering of the colo-
nel's message, and, motioning to his
blanketed braves to follow, he turned
about and rode away.
"What do you think they'll do?" was
the eager question asked the adjutai;'
on his return to the post. "Is he mad
enough to mean fight?"
"He is, if he doesn't get any drunk-
er," was the answer. "More whisky
would be the surest way of settling,the
question now, but it would rob us of
the pleasure of knocking him out-and
be d----d to him for spoiling my din-
ner!"
At 8 o'clock that night, with oqe
platoon in dispersed order well to the
front and others in reserve, while the
garrison of Fort Frayne stood by their
arms within the fort, Captain Farwell's
troop moved slowly up the dark valley,
along the snow covered flats, out beyond
the point where the delegation was met
at dusk and held at bay, and, though
the stars were glinting in the frosty skt
and not a bvteath of air was stirring
and the night was still as solitude it-
self, not a whisper could be heard from
the direction of the village, not a spark
of fire could be seen. Over against them
on the nortlhirn shore were sounds at
times as of rai,i l hoof beats muffild by
the snow. Half a mril- ,nut a lirsemau
loomed up at thr. fr'nl a:l iu a moment-.
was mierged in thli' tdvaning line.
S-'tVhat is it, sergeant? What news
hav\ youa?" asked the yong platog

S,-j iey're off, sir! A wvjo'le gang of
oldlt Lks and women on ponies and
travois has started across the Platte;
The warriors are all there yet. You'll
hear Big Road shouting in a minute.
He's fighting full and is urging on some
deviltry. I can't make out what, bul
from all we can understand of it he
wants to lead a rush through the stables
to capture or kill the horses. He's just
drunk enough to try, but the OtherN
won't let him. They declare they won't
follow him. They know too much.
What they want to do is to get out and'
reach Trooper creek tonight, I reckon."
"Ride back, then, and let the captain
know. Who else are out at the front onf
watch?"
"Only Rorke and two or three of the
Indian troop, sir. They are taking care
of themselves, though."
And then for a moment the forward
movement ceased. "Halt, halt!" were
the low toned orders of the noncommis-
sioned officers dispersed along the line,
and under the twinkling stars, dim,
ghostly and silent, the extended rank of
riders seemed as one l~an to rein in and
wait. Here and there an impatient
charger began to paw the snow, and
others sniffed suspiciously and cocked
their pointed ears in the direction of the
unseen village. Some young troopers,
tremulous with excitement and cold
combined, began to slap their fur gloved
hands on breast or thigh and had to be
sternly called to order. Presently a
muffled horseman came riding up from
the rear, a trumpeter in his tracks.
"That's right, Martin. You did well
to halt a minute. I've sent back word
to Colonel Fenton. He had wired to the
agency before we pulled out."
"Can't we turn 'em back without his
authority, sir?"
"No, even when we know they mean
to cross the Platte. But orders will
come tonight. The wires are working
well."
"Captain, did you hear what Captain
Amory said this evening?" asked the
youngster as he edged in closer to the
i elder's side, "that Ormsby never came
out here that we didn't have a shindy
with the Sioux?"
"Yes, but poor Jack is out of the
dance this time and can't be with us
Sas he was before."
"I don't understand," said Martin;

having some vague theory that the ill-
ness of Miss Farrar was at the bottom
of Ormsby's inability to tako part in
the promised chase. "I didn't suppose
anything could keep him from taking a
hand in soldier service."

Mr. Isaac Horier, proprietor of the
Burton House, Burton, W. Va., and one
of the most widely known men in the state"
was cured of. rheumatism after three
years of suffering. He says: 'I have not
sufficient command of language to con-
vey any idea of what I suffered, my physi-
cians told me that nothing could be done
for me and my friends were fully con-
vinced that nothing but death would re-
lieve me of my suffering. In June 1S94,
Mr. Evans, then salesman for the Wheel-
ing Drug Co., recommended Chambe,--
lain's Pain Balm. At this time my foot
and limb were swollen to more than
double their normal size and it seemed to
me my leg would burst, but soon after I
began using the Pain Balm the swelling
0f- &en to dereae, the pain to leave m,

cured. For sale Ly L M. Ware, & C'

In Feeble Health

Unable to do Her Work- Nervous
and Tired- All These Troubles
Cured by Hood's Sarsaparilla.
"Foi the past four years I have been in
feeble health, and for two years past,
owing to change of climate, I have not
been able to do my work. I was nervous
and had a tired feeling and was under the
treatment of physicians, but I continually
grew worse. My husband insisted on my
trying Hood's Sarsaparilla and I finally
consented, and began taking it the first of
June, 1896. The first bottle did me so
much good that I continued with it, and
after taking four bottles and one bottle of
Hood's Pills I am able to do my work,
and the tired, nervous feeling is entirely
cured." MRS. G. N. HOSEA, Suwanee, Ga.

Honie Again from Vernon.
Correspondence of the Buoy.
The last of St. Andiews Bay's con-
ingent to the circuit court, returned
friday night gl9d to get back to the
ivigorating gulf irees. Tile
climate of Vernon did not agree with 1
is at all, some of our party were
ick most of the time. The water
s very bad, said to contain an alkali
whichh causes sickness to all not ac-
ustomed to it. The place lias imn-
'rovedsomewhat since our last visit,
several new business houses and
substantial homes have been erected,
lut there is yet abundant room for
improvement. The new court house
'ith its massive brick walls and
oof is a great step in advance of the
Id rIcketty shell in which we used
O meet.
The interior is large and roomy
nd well fitted for the purposes in-
ended, and were the workmanship
keeping with the spaciousness of!'
ic building it would be a credit to
ie county; but in this respect "some
ne has bluudereu," and it is a pity
iat so much brick, mortar and
unber should have been put togetl.er
so unworkmanlike a manner.
The conduct of Judge Maxwell on
ic bencli won for him the esteem of


1. We were sorry to find Maijor
ilion indisposed and unable to con-


compensated for by other advanta-
geons considerations which inevitably
enter the question of a location for
the "city of the dead." A good side-
walk to the cemetery would shorten
thle distance for tired and impetuous
pedesteiians, and to this end all our
citizens should mutually unite to
cure our diseased fancies.
Thlie writer purchased the forty
acres east of town on which tlie old
ccmotery is located, and stops are
being taken to have all the graves
removed. This should be done. not
alone from a business point of view,
but sacred as well. It is simply a
"squatter" cemetery, no plat of lots
,r deeds, ever having been made.
The graves are unprotected atnd
neglected. All person. having
friends buried there shoulnl, and no
doubt will feel it their duty to place
their remains in a spot of ground
they can call their own. A deserted,
cemetery is a blotch upon the filler
sensibilities ofany community. Tihe
state of Gorgia has been saciiligious
in neglecting her ex- governor's grave
at Old Town.
lThe proprietors and owners of lots
should awaken and impiove the new
cemetery. The main street through
its center, at least, should be graded
and shelled tile coming year, and a
summer house erected a ro-und the
well to shelter in case of Iain d ur-
ing interlnent or decorative ser-
vices. J. C. LIPLs

Haste In Courtship.
Among the many faults of the nine-
teenth century is often reckoned haste.
The world, one says, is full of hurry
and bustle. Time is outrageously dear, *
yet in the business of courting men are
marvels in patience and leisureliness
when compared to what they were in
the middle ages. They liked then to
commence a courtship by what is re-
garded now as the next to the last word
in it, "Will you marry me?" and they
had little use for preliminaries. If the
gentlewoman was wise and virtuous,
she, of course, knew immediately what
to say, for she previously had been in-
formed of her suitor's fortune, as he of
her dowry, and a few minutes only were
necessary for the young people to see
whether they were mutually agreeable
or not.--Emily Stone in Lippincott's.
Swiss experts have come to the con-
clusion that more harm is done than
prevented by roping climbers on gla-
ciers. Tourists saved from a crevasse
are often fatally injured by the rope
cutting into the body. It is now propos-
ed to obviate this by means of specially
constructed broad belts.

The Dance Dictator.
The large private dances given in
New York afford a means of livelihood
to a number of women whose work does
not appear conspicuously in the results
as important as it really is. The lists of
many of the hostesses that entertain in
this way are taken charge of by young
women who make a business cf sending
out invitations, ovcrlookiig lists and
generally superintendi:;g the entire dis-
tribution of the invitations. Thisneces-
sitates a revision of thl nam'.~ns and the
omission of all who happen to be no
longer available for social entertain-
ments from one cause or another. The
women who attend to work of this kind
relieve the hostess of all further respon-
sibility than the delivery to her of the
invitations. This is a particular relief
to the people in society who happen to
spend any considerable part of their
time in Europe and are unfamiliar with
the changes that take place in New
York. One young woman and her moth-
er have for several years made a very


good living out of work of this kind,
and there are a half dozen or more who
devote their time to it. At many of the
large balls a hostess never expects to
know personally all the people she in-
vites. Some of them play no more im-
portant part in her acquaintance than a
place on her visiting list, and, that dis-
tinction having once been gained, it is
likely to be secure until something very
serious happens: One of the duties of
the women who make a business of this
sort of thing is to see that invitations do
not go to people whose friends would be
grieved by the suggestion of their at-
tending a ball.--New York Sun-

5 Grand Jury Presentment.
The grand jury of the circuit court
5 for W\ashlington coulint3 completed its
labors on tile evening of the 26th ult
and submitted the following
P'lETENTMENT:
To the H1,n. E. C. Maxwell, Judge o
the First Judicial Circuit of Florida.
S We, tle grand jury drawn andi ini
pannelled to serve in and fori \ash
S ingto'r county for tlie spring term o
A. D. 1897, respectfully submit this
our fiial presentment:
We regret to report that we have
had to investigate an unusual amount
Sof crime of a serious nature- the reck.
less use of firearms, and assault ant
l battery, and hope that some mealni
Scan be devised for diminishing the
S 1 Ie.
) The pernicious practice of carrying
firearms is much to be regretted, ant
Swe hope that some means can be de
5 vised to lessen the evil.
5 We have examined the books and
Records of the county judge's office,
the county superintendent of public
Sinlstruc lon, county clerk, and the
treasurer, and found them correctly
kept, as far as we could judge, aind
the books neatly kept, except in the
county judge's room, where they are
soilel with ink stains.
The cash exhibit is satisfactory.
We find no record of any license hay-
ing been issued to peddlars, yet it
has eome to our knowledge that sev-
eral of such have been doing business
in tila county, andl woull call tie at-
tenition of the proper officers to the
tact.
In our inquiries into tile condition
of the roads andl b;ri.ges of the coun-
ty, we find tlat in Omtie parts of tihe
county the roads have been well
worked and the bridges in good con-
dition; but there is one district (tlhe
Sixth) that failed to have any work
performed,t though tie neglect of the
road commissioner to appoint a su-
pervisor, which we hope will be at-
tended to by the proper authorities,
We have visited tihe poorhouse and
find a good, substantial building, fin-
ished in a workmanlike manner, well
suited for the purposes intended.
We can compliment ourselves on
having a large brick building coim-
pleted-one of the latest designs, aind
comprising all of thie modern improve-
ments and accommodations, which,
will serve \ashington county for
llmaniy years to come as a ccurthlouse.
All the departments are sufficiently
largee for the transaction of such bus-
iness as they are designed, with three
large fire-proof vaults for the safe
keeping of all records ani papers of
record.
We reconmlend the paying for this
courthouse, with such an amount of
extras as the county commissioners
and contractors can agree upon.
W\e are pleased to note that the
recommendations embodied in thlialast
general presentment of this body
was adhered to by the connuy coum-
missioners in regard to the construc-
tion of a securely' built jail, where all
prisoners can be confined in safety,
without fear of escape, thereby re-
ducing the heavy expenses heretofore
incurred in transporting the crimi-
nals to and from other county jails.
It contains onie Pauley cell, appar-


ently strong and substantial; also
one Diebold cell for the safe keeping
of the worst criminals, with all the
modern appliances and combination
doors.
We recommend that this building
be paid for as contracted for, with
such amount of extras as the county
commissioners and contractors can
agree upon.
It has come to our knowledge that
one of the members of the board of
ciiunty commissioners was hired by
that body to supeiintend the con.

We recommend, providing it canl

possible, fJr tie purpose of paying off

of such be used to take up tile script

bears interest .t the rate of eight per

W\e recommend that copiies of this
presentment be forwarded to the

We would call tile attention of the
county officers to the section of the
law requiring tile various officers to
keep their offices at tile county seat.

A Travelinfg Library.
An insatiate reacdr on his travels,
Napoleon complained, when at Warsaw,
in 1807, and when at Bayonne, in 1808,
that his librarian at Paris did not keep
him well supplied with books. "The
emperor," wrote the secretary to Bar-
bier, "wants a portable library of 1,000
volumes in 12mo., printed in good type
without margin, and composed as near-
ly as possible of 40golumes on religion,
40 of epics, 40 of plays, 60 of poetry,
100 of novels, 60 of history, the remain-
ler, to make up 1,000 of historical mem-
oirs. The religious works are to be
the Old and New Testaments, the Ko-
ran, a selection of the works of the fa-
thers of the church, works respecting
the Aryans, Calvinists, of mythology,
etc. The epics are to be Homer, Lucan,
Tasso, Telemachus, 'The Henriade,'
etc." Machiavelli, Fielding, Richard-
;on, Montesquieu, Voltaire, Corneillo,
Eacine and Rousseau were also among
the authors mentioned.--Lew Rosen.

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.
To 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 su'h 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-
tlation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
Io make improvements may deposit, an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
bhe same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
Ill property entrusted to its keeping,guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
Ar damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
P iama careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plmt'htonin the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
PrtiofF;ait'per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ost of planting 1st
yWasay $30'; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
r;,-if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, wh4le figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, incoming into profitable'bearing may be named pears, apricots,
aectarines, tplums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, peanws, and ,many other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
ree mostt certain to ffourish 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-
oering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
over all questions asked it.
R E M E M B E R the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
'ts of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
tbehthe work has been performed. CO RRESPONDENC E SOLICITED.

upon reliable information and belief,
that the person who holds and uses
the said letter, as aboye set forth, is
J. N. C. Stockton, a member of the
house of representatives from Duval
county.
I ask to have this statement and
protest spread upon the minutes of
the senate.
Mr. Hartridge moved that the doc-
ument be spread upon the journal,
which was agreed to.
Mr. Stockton, upon a question of
privilege, in the house, declared that
the letter in question was not sealed
and contended that lie had a perfect
right to make use of it in ths inter-
est of good citizenship. But up to
this writing no explanation has been
made as to how he came to be in pos-
session of the burglarized letter.
LATER-MR. STOCKTON'S LAME EXPLAN-
ATION.
it has been questioned Low I came
in possession of this letter. \Veli
my friends, every man and woman in
the state of Florida knows that 1 was
firmly impressed with the fact that
the election of the party to whom tihe
letter was addressed wonld be not
only a blow to a republican form of
government, but a disgrace to the in-
telligence, manhood and honesty of
the people, and especially the Florida
legislature. Think of the methods
used by this candidate for United
States senator. Free passes, free


Consternation in tie State Sen-
ate.
On the 25th nlt.. Senator W. D.
Chipley caused consternation in the
state senate by sending to the clerk's
desk and having read the following
racy renirks, which, however need
some explanation. The letter, it
seems was written by E. J. Triay re-
ferring to political matters, with the
intention of sending it to Col. Chip-
Icy, but while yet in Mr. Triay's pos-
session had been stolen together witt
the coat in tlhe pocket of which it was,
by a burglar who entered his house.
vMr. Chipleys statement follows:
I am reliably informed that a niem-
ber of the legislature of Florida, of
winch this senate is a part, and of
which I am a member, holds in his
possession a letter addressed to me;
which 1 have never seen or read, it
having been piocnred without. the
knowledge or consent of the writer or
myself
I am further informed that the
present unauthorized holder of my
property has shown said letter to
members of this legislature for the
purpose of doing me an injury, and
has said to others that he held such a
letter, and that it would injure me.
This property, feloniously taken,
and unlawfully held, has been se-
cretly used as documentary evidence
to influence members of the legisla-
ture in the discharge of their official
duties, and I feel it to be a duty I
owe to the members of both houses,
and but fair and just to myself as a
senator, that I be permitted to state
within my privilege and have' spread
upon the minutes of the senate this
statement and protest.
The letter now illegally held by a
member of this legislature was writ-
ten to me by a friend in Jacksonville,
under the sacred confidence of a close
and intimate correspondence between
friends. Many letters written under
such circumstances, under skillful
and malicious perversion, might be
used to mislead and deceive, but in
this instance I am assailed, aun am
held responsible for the contents of a
letter written to me and which I have
never seen.
The letter was written to me by
my friend, placed under the protce-
tion of a United States postage stamp
and then deposited in the writer's
coat pocket, that he might mail it in
the postal car at the terininal station
at Jacksonville, it being his inten;
tion to depart front that station the
next morning. During the night tlie
private home of my friend was invad-
ed by a burglar, and he was robbed of
money and clothes, and also of the
letter addressed to myself, which was
in his pocket. In all ages a thief
has been despised and execrated by
honest men; yet there is a lower and
viler criminal than a thief, for a thliiet
at least has the nerve to risk his life
when invading his sleeping victim's
home; but the beneficiary of the theft,
who secretly receives the stolen goods
to his own profit or to further his
own interest and purposes, is recog-
nized by the law, and the judgment
of all honest and brave men as a
worse and more dangerous criminal
than the cringing thief himself.
I protest against this unlawful and
surreptitious possession of my proper-
ty by a member of this legislature.
1 protest against the nefarious and
secret use of that letter, in an effort
to impair my usefulness, and defame
my character as a senator. I state


they take and some of them putting tho
stamp of their own individuality on the
papers and acts which make up an ad-
ministration.
When a president elect, facing the
chief justice, has repeated the constitu-
tional oath, "I do solemnly swear that
I will faithfully execute the office of
president of the united States and will,
to the best of my ability, preserve, pro-
tect and defend the constitution of the
United States," he has indentured him-
self for four years of the heaviest servi-
tude that ever fell to the lot of any mor-
tal. By comparison the "hired man"
talked about in the last canvass would
lead a pampered existence, and a consti-
tutional monarch is a man of leisure. A
president equal to his oath is both king
and premier. He reigns and he rules.
He is bowed down by the crown of au-
thority and is encompassed by the man-
tle of care.
Lincoln and the Widow.
During all that dreadful period when
the civil war was ravaging the country
Lincoln held the reins of the govern-
ment, and, although worn out with un-
ceasing toil, he never neglected an op-
portunity to help those who suffered.
One day a poor woman, whose tears
had worn furrows down her cheeks gain-
ed an audience with Lincoln, and in a
few words related the sad tale of her
husband, who had fought in the Union
army only to lose his life, and of her
three boys, whowere then fighting. She
requested the discharge of her eldest
boy, that she might have some one to
support her. Lincoln's heart responded
to the appeal, and he replied, "Cer-
tainly if you have given us all and
your prop has been taken away you are
justly entitled to one of your boys."
The poor woman went away light of
heart, only to return later, tearfully
begging the release of her second son.
The discharge of the first son had come
too late. He was killed before it reached
him. Sadly Lincoln sat down and wrote
the requisite order for the relc;ase of theo


telegrams, free whisky, free cigars,
free hotel bills, free gratification of
the sensual appetites of weak men,
together with the powerful corpora-
tion influence, not only in this state,
but throughout the nation, backed by
unlimited money and the promise of
future political preferment, until well-
nigh every office in the gift ol a Unit-
ed States senator, and even in the
gift of the people themselves, had
been parceled out in advance to the
hungry horde of political inercenaries
with which this man had surrounded
himself.
Tihs letter was handed to me by
an officer without solicitation on my
part, by a party who had been in
sympathy with the member who made
the statement reflecting upon me;
This party made the statement at the
time that he did not believe in such
methods, and felt it his duty to put
the letter in my hands. The letter
was handed to me without postage
stamp and was unsealed.
DETAILS OF THE BURGLARY.
Citizen.
The burglary of the Triay resi-
dence at 324 West Duval street,
which has now become historical,
since reference to it is spread upon
the journals of the Florida legislature,
bears some peculiar features. In the
room first entered, the burglar found
Mr. Triay's yest and coat, wLich he
took. Passing up the staircase ihe
entered Mr. Triav's room and took
only his trousers, although valuable
jewelry was upon the bureau in plain
view. Hie seems to have entered no
other room although a gold watch,
valuable clothing, the family silver
and bric-a-brac showed through open
doo s.
The loss was discovered at 6 a. im.,
the police were notified, and a list of
the missing articles furnished. With-
in two hours the clothing was re
turned, but the police declared that
no papers, money or other articles
were found in the pockets.
One of the articles supposed to
have been carried off by the burglar
is now found in the possession of Mr.
J. N. C. Stockton. With his help
the police should be able to supply
the link hitherto missing in the chain
leading directly to the burglar and
thl fence in the case. From whon
did Mr. Stockton get the letter?
T.he detection and punishment of
one of these burglars may lead to the
arrest of tlie lawbreakers who have
hitherto defied the police force of the
city. The officials employed to exe-
cute tle law cannot afford to neglect
tie new information now supplied
them.- ;

Drudgery Required of the President.
In The Century C. C. Buel has sa p.-
per on "Our Fellow Citizen of the White
House," in which he writes of the offi-
cial cares of the president. In opening
his article Mr. Duel says:
A president who should not carry in-
to the White House a relish for drudg-
ery, business habits cf the nicest dis-
crimination and a constitution of iron
would be president only in name, even
as regards his more important duties.
His signature on the papers which he is
told will not otherwise be legal might
be as good as the custodian of his bank
account would require, but within the
meaning of the law it would be as often
as not a moral forgery. Yet no com-
plaint should be offered on this account.
Presidents are made for better or for
worse. Such as they are in natural facul-
ties and strength, so they must serve,
some of them leaning on official advisers
and bureaucratic clerks in every step

per to the afflicted --:oman, saying:
