that the Cramps of Philadelphia are

Express Car Robbery.
An express car on the L. & N rail-
road was held up by a robber be-
tween Nashville and Clarikville,
Tenn., on the night of June 23, and
between $2,000 and $4,000 in booty
obtained. Passengers were not nio-

All but the United States, and possi-

States badly need the canal to
bring their eastern and western
coasts together for purposes of pro-
tection or trade.
If Hawaii is annexed to this
country, the necessity for the Nica-
ragua canal would be increased, and
with this canal the Hawai:an islands
would constitute a really important
possession as the half-way station of
an important commerce. The trade

eastern coast of Asia has increased

stricken daughter, heard with straining
ears the excited tones of the servants at
the back doors and but for Helen Daun-
ton's vigilance would herself have gone
to ascertain the cause. Stipulating that
her friend should not go down stairs,
Helen had hastened forth, finding their
own kitchen deserted, and, as the colo-
nel's house was but a few rods awav and
Lucretia was there at the gate in vehe-
ment recitative with Mrs. Amory and
certain of the younger belles of the gar-
rison as listeners, Helen hastened thith-
er, only to se the party scatte.-r at her
approach. This in itself was ominous,
but it was no time for hesitation. Some
of the party were evidently in tears.
The old chaplain was rapidly approach-
ing from his quarters on the westward
side; the doctor, fieldglass in hand, was
studying the snowy expanse to t~e north
from the edge of .the bluff. With him
stood the sergeant of the guard, and an-
other noncommissioned officer was has-
tening toward him up the sentry post
of No. 5. It was to them she appealed,
and in their faces she read the first in-
timation of ill news,
The doctor turned as though he had
been expecting her and held forth his
hand. "Iam glad you are here," he
said, "for I have reason to disbelieve
the news that has been frittering in ever
since dawn, but I wish it kept from
Mrs. Farrar as long as possible. "
Helen's face had turned white as the
snow. He saw it and drew her arm
within his own. "Stragglers from Big
Road's band say-those that were left
at Trooper creek, at least-that there
was a fight last night. Part of the vil-
lage was captured and part of the band
broke through and got away. The In-
dians claim to have killed several of
our people, but they are the biggest
boasters on the face of the globe. The
cowboys over yonder believe it, because
they hate Fenton and the Twelfth and
wouldn't be sorry to have them worsted,
because that would bring on a big war
and lots of troops. We would have heard
it by this time in some way had there
been serious disaster."
"But, doctor, Miss Fenton and others
with her hastened away when they saw
me coming, and they were in tears."
"Oh, they've got hold of some silly
story that the servants have been gab-

said he, scowling' malignantly at Jim-

Daunton," he continued as she seemed
to shiver and tremble. "Ishall need all
your strength if there be trouble com-
ing. But, if my opinion is not suffi-
cient, let me tell you what Captain
Leale thinks. He says that the Indians
wouldn't fight in the dark except at
long range, and the story is that Will
was tomahawked. Keep everything from
her, therefore, for the present. Colonel
Fenton will be here by noon."'

No one can conceal from Mrs. Farrar

let go his key and sat listening to the
quick beating of the "tinyhammer of
the instrument, then seized a pencil and
began to write just as a faltering step
was heard on the creaking woodwork of
the piazza. The door burst open, and in,
with wild eyes and disheveled hair, a
heavy cloak thrown about her, but with-
out overshoes, without gloves, all oblivi-
ous to the bitter cold, Marjorie Farrar
rushed in upon them.
"Toll me instantly," she began, but
the Citor, an inspiration seizing him
as he read the operator's face, turned
with uplifted haud, with reassuring
smile as Helen opened her arms to re-
ceive her friend. There was a moment
more of breathless, harrowing suspense,
of swift clicking at the table, of swift
skimming pencil, and then Kurtz sprang
to his feet and placed in Mrs. Farrar's
trembling hand the yellow brown sheet.
With eyes that seemed starting from
their sockets, she read. Then, with one
glad cry, "Thank God! Oh, thank
Godt" threw herself on Helen's breast.
The doctor seized the fluttering paper
ere it it reached the floor and read aloud:
My congratulations on Will's gallant bearing
in his maiden fight. He merits the name he
bears. Expect us home tomorrow night, very
hungry. GEonGE FENTON.
But that was only a part of the story.
What Leale said was true enough.
The Indians would not fight in the dark
except at long range, but that did not
prevent their taking advantage of the
dark for a sudden rush that would en-
able them to burst through what they
well knew could only be a thin and
widely dispersed line. It was easier to do
it in the dark, as the warriors well

learning from their vigilant scouts
about where Farrar's men were deploy-

until close upon them; then at given
signal and with full understanding that
no one was to stop fp anything they
dashed forward over the snow at head-
long speed.
The few shots fired whizzed by their
ears without checking them in the least,
though two Sioux saddles,' by great
good luck, were emptied, and when the

others following behind raced through
just as he was scrambling to his feet,

Commbiaatto and Wales.
In what lines of industry are the,
wages lowest and the abuses greatest?
Is it in those where modern methods
have been most extensively employed'.
and where machinery, with its attendant
concentration of power, has made the
most progress, or is it in those whose
methods are survivals from an earlier
stage of industrial order?
To this question there can be but one
answer. The lowestwages, the most un-,
sanitary conditions, the grossest abuses
and oppressions are not to be found in
factories, but in tenement house indus-
tries. It is among the cigar makers, ol
among the workers in certain branches q
of the ready made, clothing trade that
these matters are at their worst. Yet it
is just here that the conditions of em-
ployment are most like those which pre-
vailed in earlier industrial periods.
The sufferers under the sweating sys-
tem are not, as is so often charged, the
victims of the present industrial order.
They are the victims of a survival of
past labor conditions into an age which
has become familiar with better ones.-
Professor Arthur T. Hadley ini Atlantic.

Why?
Why is it that a common poet, when
he wishes to compose a beautiful poem
on any subject, as Venice or youth, al-
ways instinctively begins, "O Venice,"
or "0 youth," when it is well known
that no line beginning in that way is
worth a'eent?
It is strange, too, that when a begin-
ner at story writing wishes to make a
sad scene, he always brings in bitteri
tears" and "breaking hearts," when it
has long been known to the trade that
the reading public can read about bitter
tears and breaking hearts all day and
never miss a meal.--Detroit Free Press.

And trilled his happy lay.

Rose on the frigid air.
He praised with sighs his darling's eyes
And the color of her hair.
He sang in mellow monotone
Of her form with grace bedight
And prayed that she with ecstasy
, Would dream of him that night.

He saw the worlds, "For Rent."

Placing thle Censure Where It
Shouildi Be.
After the contract was let for the
building of the new court house at Ver-
non, the question of a suitable man to
superintend the work arose. There
were two applicants-a Mr. Smith of
St. Andrews and Mr. Dean. Mr. Dean
was a member of the board of county
commissioners. I questioned the legal
right of the board to employ a member
and then later would be called upon to
receive the same. Mr. Dean said it
was done in other counties and he had
consulted legal authority and it was all
right. Well, he was to have recom-
mendations by the next meeting, Next
meeting there were none. The people
began to talk and criticise the board
till it got to where they were ready for
a change and agreed to leave the mat-
ter with me; soI came ho:: e and told
Mr. Smith, the other applicant, to be
ready to go to Vernon with me on the
following Monday, when the board had
to meet to attend to special business.
So we were there, and during the
day I saw sentiment was growing in
favor of Mr. Dean. On Monday night
Mr. Gainer left; his brother having car-
ried him news that one of his children
was sick, and next day when the ques-
tion was called p, one vote was cast for
Mr. Dean, one for Mr. Smith and one
member refused to vote-that made a
tie vote, and Mr. Dean remained on the
work. I don't mean to say that he vot-
ed for himself; but he remained on the
work.
After the criticism of the grand jury
in their fi3al presentment, I feel that I
must let my friends know that I oppos-
ed tne appointment of a member of the
board to superintend the building, af-
ter he had practically acknowledged to
the board that he was no brick mason
while the other man who furnished us
with letters of recommendation from
every man for whom he had worked in
Dothan, Ala., and other places was sent
back. Very respectfully,
J. R. THOMPSON.

March 6th, 1895, as follows:
"Five years ago I became so nervous that
mental work was a burden. I could not rest
at night on account of sleeplessness. My
attention was called to Dr. Miles' Restora-
tive Nervine, and I commenced to use it
with the very best effect. Since then I
have kept a bottle in my house and use it
whenever my nerves become unstrung, with
always the same good results. My son also

It is free from narcotic, perfectly harm-

ON OCEAN'S BED.
What Becomes of Ships Which Sink to
the Bottom of the Sea.
What becomes of the ship that sinks
in midooean? If it is of wood, it takes,
in the first place, considerable time for
it to reach the bottom. In 100 or more
fathoms of water a quarter of an hour
will elapse before the ship reaches bot-
tom. Itsinksslowly, and, when the bot-
tom is reached, it falls gently into the
soft, oozy bed, with no crash or break--
ing.
Of course, if it is laden with pig iron
or corresponding substances, or if it is
an iron ship, it sinks rapidly and some-
times strikes the bottom with such force
as to smash in pieces, Once sunken, a
ship becomes tle prey of the countless
inhabitants of the ocean.
They swarm over and through the
great boat and make it their home. Be-
sides this they cover every inch of the
boat with a thick layer of lime. This
takes time, of course, and wheu one
generation dies another continues the
Sork, until finally the ship is so laden
with :a.ivy iuicrustations. corals, spouc-E
and barnacles that, if wood, the creak-
ing timw'lc-s fall apart aud slowly but
surely ta'o absotrbd in the waste at the
sea bott llm.

Sanitation In Asia.
The appearance of plague at Bombay
and Calcutta has produced one good
effect at all events. Before its advent
those prosperous cities had come to be-
lieve that they had nothing to learn in
regard to sanitation. There was a time
when they were open to reproach in
such matters as open sewers, polluted
water, and what not. But by dint of
liberal expenditure of money and energy
they had made matters right and could
even challenge comparison with Paris,
Berlin and Vienna. When, however, the
awful eastern scourge, after striking
firm root at the western capital, flew
across the peninsula to the eastern, the
public became a little doubtful as to
whether sanitary precautions had been
duly observed. First came inquiry, then
dismay, indignation, wrath, as discov-
ery followed discovery, each more ap-
palling than the last. We refrain from
giving particulars. Even to read these
horrors is sickening. But a still more
terrible question presents itself, If the
two most cultured and wcalrhiest cities
in Hindustan are in this dreadful con-
dition, what must be the state of less
favored centers of population in districts
where there are few whites and many
blacks? Were the plague to penetrate
inland, it would, we fear, find many
towns only too ready for its reception

the followers of the Darwinian theory
of evolution was made n6t long since
near the little village of Sinaloa,

sisted of hundreds of skeletons of what
some believed to be a prehi-torio peo-

Each of the skelatorus is provided with

Exploring the Upper Niger.
After an absence of three years the
expedition under Lieutenant Hourst has
safely returned to Europe from the Ni-
ger. The party ascended the Senegal
river and then carried the sections of
an aluminium boat overland to the up-
per part of the Niger. On reaching this
river the pieces of the boat were put to-
gether and two native boats purchased.
In those the expedition sailed down the
Niger to Timbuktu, where a stay of
ten months was made. The voyage
from Timbuktu to Lokoja, at the con-
fluence of the Niger and.Benue, seems
to have been arduous, but from that
point the expedition was towed by a
launch belonging to the Royal Niger
company to the coast at Wari. How
much fresh topographical information
Lieutenant Hourst's party has obtained
is not yet stated. This will -depend on
the highest point reached on the Niger.
Reuter's message states that the expedi-
tion "first met the river Niger at
Kayes," but that town is on the Sene-
gal river. There can be no doubt, how-
ever, that much valuable scientific in-
formation was obtained, for the expedi-
tion traveled slowly and was admirably
equipped. One novelty was the use of a
phonograph for reporting the native war
songs. The expedition kept peace with
the natives throughout the journey, in
which it differs greatly from some of
those previously conducted by French
explorers in that region.-Nature.
The common cocklebur of the coun-
try is simply the seed case of a plant.
Its thorny books give it a hold upon fur
or wool bearing animals or upon the
clothes of men, and thus cause it to be
j transported to considerable distances.

HELLO.


AFTER THREE YEARS.
When They Returned Their Pon's Language
Seemed Weird and Inoomprehensible.
Albert's father and mother left him
when he was 10 years old for an exten-
aire tour through Europe. After three
years spent abroad they returned a few
mornings ago, and in their eugerness to
kinow how things had gone during their
absence they draggdl that young gentle-
pman from his bed, where he was calm-

commenting on his growth und apparent
good health they began to catechise
him, and the conversation was about as
follows:
"Why were you not down at the
wharf to meet us?" asked the father.
"Well, I did intend to come down
and give you the glad hand, but I sup-
pose I overslept myself."
A look of astonishment swept over
the faces of his parents, but the mother
was too eager for news to -pay any at-
tention to the slang and said: "I notice
you have a new house girl, Albert.
What has become of Molly?"
"Flow the coop."
"What?"
"Jumped the game."
"Look here, young man, explain
yourself" said the exasperated father.
"I mean she took a skate, and I have
not seen her since."
"Did she drown?" anxiously asked
the mother.
"Naw; just sloped."
"How singular," said the mother.
"But what has become of dear little
Puggy?"
"Croaked."
"What?"
"He croaked, I said," answered the
young hopeful.
"This thing has gone far enough,'
said the now thoroughly aroused father.
"Tell your mother what became of her
dog."
"The dog died. Can't you under-
stand?"
"Oh, me, I knew it would happen!"
sobbed the mother. "Where is that
stable boy, .William? I told him to take
good care of poor little Puggy."
"Bill joined the white wings"-
"Oh I- Do you mean that he is dead,
too?" asked the mother, softening her
tone.
"Naw. I mean he joined Waring's
white winsi. He -ot f Abdinky dint for
rushing the duick, and he's on the hog
now."
"I don't understand what the boy
means at all," said the father, growing
alarmed. "I think"-
"Say," put in Albert, "you people.
have been in them dago countries so
long you have forgotten your own lan-
guage. Iam going to chase myself baok
to bed. So long," and the young mail
hurried to his room.
After his departure the father and
mother looked at each other and won-
dered if it were so.-New York Sunday

Climbing.
Selfish ambition may help us to climb
to the point where we may be seen, but
it never aids us in climbing to where
we can see. The higher a man gets in
the world in pursuit of selfish aims the
narrower his field of vision becomes.
The higher he gets in the pursuit of un-
selfish aims the farther he can see
around him. It matters little whether

ORGANTZEn 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.
lu accomplish this the Association proposesto 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: "Is this Asso-
elation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to make improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
for damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures arc given:
Price of ;ana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; 'ost ofplanting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20,
SIt is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
y ear, 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
lbager, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
*Irtarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
wvlnuts,.Japau chestnuts, pecans, and ,.any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
ar* almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
eidered 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 Buor will in its answers to correspondents an-
weer a'l question asked it.

THE TRUSTS HAVE THEIR INNINGS.


Swapping Free Hides For Dutiable Sugar.
"The senate tariff bill as a whole,"
says ex-Congressman John De Witt
Warner, "is a notice to eastern manu-
facturers of what they may hereafter
expect. Hitherto they have considered
protection as a sort of providential ar-
rangement by which they were enabled
to feed on the rest of the country. Now,
like Polonius in 'Hamlet,' they are in-
vited by 'a certain convocation of politic
worms' to a supper'not where they eat,
but where they are e-.ten.' The manu-
facturers of New England, New York
and Pennsylvania are to take their turn
at being mulcted for the benefit of oth-
ers who now control legislation. This
applies especially to the hide schedule."
"Cannot the New England senators
secure favorable changes in that sched-
ule?"
"I think not. The bill as it stands is
satisfactory to the Sugar trust and prob-
ably cannot be kept so except by the
totes controlled by the Cattle trust of
the west. Were the New England sena-
tors willing to risk offending the Sugar
trust, they tould doubtless defeat the
duty on hides, but the fact is that Bos-
ton and Providence, in proportion to
their size, are far'more thoroughly sat-
urated with Sugar trust influences than
is any other part of the country, and,
however much Senators Aldrich, Wet-
more, Hoar and Lodge may bewail the
fate of their boot and shoe mannfac-
turers, there is no prospect whatever
that they will sacrifice the Sugar trust
interests to help them."


.Seator Huor-That (free) hide has:
been in the family 25 years, and it al-
most breaks my heart to part with it.
Senator Allison-You needn't snivel.
Keep your old hide if you want to, but,
yot don't get any sugar (profits) See?
Sugar Trust Exists No Longer."
We are assured by The Sugar Trade
Journal of May 13-organ of the Sugar
trust-that "if ever a monopoly existed
in the sugar refining business it exists
no longer, and it is not likely that it.
will ever be renewed." This is delight-i
ful news. The Journal was discussing
an amendment to the senate bill to have'
refined sugars pay the same duties as
raw sugars in cases where the manufao-1
ture is controlled by a monopoly. If this
"visionary proposal" should pass the
senate, it would jeopardize the tariff
bill and the Sugar trust's tens of
millions of surplus profits, which are so
near at hand that the mouths of Have-
meyer and Searles are watering for them.
The Sugar trust trembles at the prospect
and tries to keep up its courage by hav-
ikg its organ inform the world that "A
lot of such visionary proposals will, no
doubt, be introduced while the bill is
under discussion, but in the end the
sound judgment men will control and a
tariff bill be passed without very much
change from the senate schedule."
The trust may be right. It usually is,
for it can predict what will happen to
the sugar schedule of the senate bill. It
knows what-demands will be made by
its agents and tools in the senate, and
it also knows the power of those who
make demands to enforce them. It puts
$70,000,000 against the interests of 70,-
000,000 people, and it knows from ex-
perience which has most weight in the
senate, where two or three hold the bal-
ance of power.
No, there is no sugar trust and never
was one.
"When the devil was sick, the devil a
saint would be."
Sugar Trust Profits Cinched.
The trusts have a cinch on Dingley
bill profits. Of course they will make
many times more if the bill becomes
law in anything like its present shape,
but they are already engaged in taking'
part of their profits.
Sugar has risen considerably in antic.
ipation of greatly increased duties,
and merchants all over the country are
laying in stores because still higher
prices are expected. The Sugar trust is
consequently busy and rolling up profits.
In April it imported 757,799,527 pounds
of raw sugar, valued at $14,747,139. An
extra profit of one-half cent per pound
on this amount-which is already real-
ized or guaranteed-means nearly $4,-
000,000 to the trust.
If the bill is two months longer in its
passage, the trust will surely pocket
$10,000,000 extra profits before the bill.
becomes law. Who says protection is,
not a good thing? And why shouldn't
Senator Aldrich push it along and in!
turn get his street railway syndicates,
pushed along by the Sugar trust? Isn't
this reciprocity? Wouldn't Aldrich bN
an ingrate if he should desert his frien,'f
and backers when he has an opportuni-
ty to help them?


SUGAR TRUST PROFITS.
John De With Warner Makes Some Esti-
mates and Scores the Trust.
Ex-Congressman John De Witt War-
ner is one of the best posted men in this
country on sugar tariffs, When in con-
gress, he carried the house for free sug-
ar. In a recently published statement
he estimates the net protection to the
trust given by'the 'Aldrich schedule at
from 85 cents to $1.14 on every 100
pounds of refined sugar.
Without attempting to give his argu-
ment as to each of the ways in which
the trust would be protected we give
his summary of trust profits as follows:
Specific differential............. $0.13@$0.40+
Thirty-five per cent ad valorem
differential ...................... 0.14@ 0.21
Countervailing duty, say ........ 0.08@ 0.85
Additional by substitution of 75
per cent ad valorem for specific
duties in low grades............. 0.09@ 0.18
Total .............................0.35@1.14
In the vast majority of cases, however, the
actual result is between 45 and 60 cents per 100
pounds net protection to the trust, and it is
impracticable so to combine circumstances as
to bring this below 40 cents or above 60 cents
for any considerable amount.
As an item of tariff taxation the sug-
ar schedule is ideal from the protection-
ist standpoint. Sugar is the one article
used by poor and rich to an equivalent
extent, and a tax on which therefore
falls most heavily on the.poor in pro-
portion to their ability to pay it. Its
production and distribution are control-
led by a concern which is at once the
greatest of our mean trusts and the
meanest of our great ones.
It is consistent therefore that on this
one article there should be levied more
than one-third of our total tariff taxa-
tion, and that our people should be bur-
dened by a tax of more than $90,000,-
000 that realizes less than $70,000,-
000 for the treasury and more than
$20,000,000 for the sugar refining com-
bine, while the samecombine is enabled
to net an additional $10,000,000 by the
opport unity given it to import at present
duty rates raw sugars from which it
can make refined to be sold by it under
the enhanced price assured it by the
proposed Aldrich schedule. The net
"pI:ttetilun" of from 46 to CO cents per
100 pounds given the triat on its rbfin-
ing prorr-su altb e~htet be considered
as sufficient when we remember that
the labor cost of this process 1i slightly
less than 6M% cents per 10l pounds-that
is to say, Senator Aldrich, in behalf of
American labor, proposes unduly to tax
wage earners in order to give the trust
from five to seven times as much "pro-
tection" as it pays for all the labor in-
volved.
Next to the wage earner the farmer
is dear to the protectionist heart, and
he is therefore equally favored by the
sugar schedule. Of late years through-
out the eastern and middle and many of
the central states the competition cf the
far west has driven our farmers from
grain raising into fruit culture. This
has now so developed that except for
exports of canned goods-jams, pre-
serves, etc.-in which we ought to sup-
ply the world, the business of fruit rais-
inghas, in its turn, become almost profit-
less. And poverty is now assured to
those who are dependent upon fruit cul-
ture by the proposed tax of two cents
a pound on sugar. This increases
by from 50 to 75 per cent the article
which would make up from 40 to 75
per cent of the total weight of the jams,
etc., the export of which might insure
living prices for the surplus fruits, but
which is now practically prohibited.
And this is "a government of the
people, by the people and for the peo-
ple." Who are "the-people?"
The Infamous Wool Schedule.
The senate computations of the equiv-
alents for Dingley bill rates on woolen
goods only need to be stated. They
make opposing argument unnecessary
in the mere reading. For example, the
rate is 55 per cent on second class wool,
289 per cent on garnetted waste, 386
per cent on shoddy, 171 per cent on
woolen cloths valued at not more than
60 cents per pouud, 167 per cent on
blankets more than three yards in
length and valued at not more than 50
cents per pound, 212 per cent on shawls
valued at not exceeding 40 cents per
pound, 151 per cent on knit fabrics val-
ued at not exceeding 40 cents per
pound, 257 per cent on hats of wool val-
ued at not more than 30 cents per
pound, 419 per cent on felts of the
same value, 147 per cent on plushes
valued at not over 40 cents per pound,
and 64 per cent on the aggregate of
woolen carpets.
The people of the United States could
better afford to buy every sheep in the
country and to put every shepherd on
the pension list than to submit them-
selves to such shameless plundering -
