Important Decision Constrsintg
Pension Clanmants' Rights.
An important decision construing
the lights of pension claimants in
line of duty cases was rendered on
the 12th inst., by Assistant Secretary
of the Interior Webster Davis. The
issue is made in the case of Henry
Miller, private in Company K, 101st
Ohio Infantry. After being relieved
from guard duty one day, Miller vol-
untarily assisted a teamster in water-
ing mules, and while so occupied, was
fired upon and injured. The depart-
ment heretofore has rejected such
cases as not in line of duty. Assist-
ant Secretary Davis, however. revers-
es the pension bureau action, holds

but was aiding a comrade in protect-

Told her? Told her what.? All Maj,.r
Wayne said to her about Willy was that
he was almost frantic with impatience
to meet her, but he'd-he'd have to take
his bath first. What did he mean by
sending such ridiculous stuff? What
were they all laughing-crying at?
Isn't here? Couldn't cross? Can't he
swim? Why, the man she thought he
was would swim Niagara rather than
miss his wedding day! And then-oh,
day of days-perhaps her words an-
nihilated space and reached the ears of
the maddened lover, for at the very mo-
ment came an Irish howl from the porch
without. "Oh, fur the luv of God, shtop
him! Don't let himl Oh, mother of
Moses, it's drownin he is!" And then,
all shrieks and terror, did most of the
party scatter for the balconies, while,
all shrieks and terror and protestations
that she'd never speak to him again if
he dared to, Kitty collapsed upon a sofa.
Was ever there a wedding day to
match it? Soaked to the skin, dripping,
but triumphant, Will Farrar rode out
of the floods and up the heights amid the
frenzied acclamations of the garrison,
and throwing himself from the saddle
at the colonel's gate demanded to see,
if not to squeeze, his bride. There wore

In that one day there clam crushing in
upon him the consequences of a genera-
tion of misdoing.
It was enough that he should have
failed to explain matters to Kitty. It
was worse when he took the first oppor-
tunity to explain matters to Jack. His
way of doing it was somewhat as fol-
lows, and they were dressing for the
ceremony, and Jack, gorgeous in his
full dress uniform as a lieutenant of the
Seventh, was sick at heart over the cold,
constrained greeting accorded him by
"Why, of course, old fellow, you
didn't impose silence on me, and I s'poso
I let out about your engagement"-
"My what?" says poor Jack aghast.
"Your engagement. You said, even
to attend Kitty's wedding, you couldn't
get away until yours was fulfilled-on
the 10th, wasn't it?"
"Certainly, our annual inspection.
No man in the Seventh would miss that
for love or money. "
"But, Jack, don't you know? I'm
sure you told me a lady was in the case.
You told me her name, and-indeed,
you did-that Effie and you were to be
'You transcendental idiot! I told you

were tied for place and neither dared

And then, instead of smashing
Wayne, as was his first thought, Jack
fled down stairs in search of Ellis and
found her and told her Wayne's story
and then his own, breathlessly, eagerly,
imploringly, and there were blushes and
tears and soft laughter and soft, happy
murmurs, and-and how horribly those
big epaulets get in the way and service
medals and soutache braid scratch at
such times! And at last did Jack uplift
his voice again to say, "Ellis, I'm in
heaven," and then did she uplift a
blushing, tear stained, kiss rumpled face
to archly inquire, "A Seventh heaven,
Jack?" and then digl old Fenton come
blustering in to take a veteran's share
in the engagement. It was known all
over the house before the wedding party
Then came the next scene in Mad
Anthony's play. Amory and the chap-
lain dcl.are to this day that when the
party was duly marshaled at the altar
the major clicked his heels together and
raised his hand in salute and began,
"Sir, the parade is"- when Ormnsby
caught the hand and brought it down.
But when it came to the ring there was
consternation. To the horror of the
groom, the despair of the bride, but to
the marked and tremulous emotion of
Aunt Lucretia, the circlet produced for
the occasion by the dazed best man was
an old fashioned brt beautiful cluster
of flashing gems. Only by a miracle
did it happen that the other ring was
in his possession. How the mixture oc-
curred there was no time to tell, until
later, when allwere gathered, for there
were two whose fortunes we have fol-
lowed through these long, long chapters
who were absent from the ceremony,
who, in fct, were having one of their
own, and to these two, while the Land

with which it had "trooped" the wed-

though in ac..'cmpaniinont to the cere-
mlony jest beginning and to the sweet
romance ilnr-ady throbbing here, the ex-
quisite strains of the "Traumerei"
softly thrilled upon the fragrant air.
"Helenl" he spoke, his deep voice
trembling, as did the hand that still
clung to hers. "You know that for me
the lights wvut out before ever that
powder flash crossed my eyes." She
strove, hardly knowing why, to release
her hand. "No, dear," he wenton gen-

darted iuto the adjoining quarters while
the laughing guests came tripping up
the stops in the wake of the bride, who,
totally ignoring Helen and Lealu now,
who were gazing into each other's eyes
in the deep bow window, rushed at her-

An OduJos Taz,
The tin plate makers wish to boom
their baiheess by increasing the duty
on imported til 1i ate, to the injury of
the canning-industry and other indus-
tries that flourish by reason of cheap
tin plate. Another blow is struck at
business by abolishing the rebate on ex-
ported tin cans. Now banned goods ex-
ported in cans made of imported tin are
allowed a drawback of the duty paid,
and thus an export business has been
built up in canned fruits, oysters, vege-
tables, petroleum, eto. Over 4,000,000
tin cans are sent abroad annually, con-
taiing oil which competes with that of
Russia. When Russia can buy tin plate
at $2.70 a box, while we have to pay
$8.50 for it. it is evident that our com-
petition will be rendered difficult. Mr.

The corporations and wealthy indi-

tariff to increase their gains. Design-
ing politicians will support it to concil-
iate their favor and to obtain the means
for profuse expenditure for the purpose
of purchasing influence in other quar-,
ters. Do not allow yourselves, my fel-4
low citizens, to be misled in this sub-

persisted in will lead to corruption and!

implies, including communistic and
chimerical schemes for a 'social de

much clamor for class legislation;
there is too mucii inculcation of
the idea that men can become richl

Hit the Wrong Party.
A Great Democratic Harmonizer.
"The Dingley bill has done more in
three days to reconstruct and strengthen
the Democratic party than all the har-'
monizers and conciliators and managers
could have done in a year," the Balti-
more News (Dem.) says.

It is unecoalomic, unscientific, suicidal
The statements upon which this schedulE

men claiming to' reprise-n the people
will permit such a Cmf-:-,,rf to have the
force of law. If-th y ,,, it will cease
to be folly and become iniquityy.'
Admits Prices Will Be Higher.
With regard to Chairman Dingley's
admission that the duty n wool will
increase the price of wool, the Kansas
City Times says: "The consumer and
not the foreigner, therefore, pays the
tariff tax. It concedes also that the
home producer puts up his prices arbi-
trarily. Mr. Dingley's own words are a
LConfession that the DiDgley bill is a

Punctures the Theory.
The opposition of the protected inter-
ests of Massachusetts to a duty on hides
looks like an abandonment of the favor-
ite protectionist theory that "the for-
eigner pays the tax. "

SAME OLD CHESTNUTS.
By making the foreigners contribute from $150,000,000 to $200,000,000 an-
nually to get into our market we enable our own people to run their business at a
profit.-American Economist, Organ of Protective Tariff League, March 26, 1897.
Uncle Sam: "Say, Dingley, you might as well come dowp. You're not
getting any chestnuts, and you're not fooling voters. McKinley had some ex-
perience up that tree-it's a horse chestnut-in 1890. He pretended that he
was making the foreigner pay the tax, but he soon found out what the peo-
ple thought of him and his bill. The bulk of Americans are both honest
and intelligent. The intelligent voter knows that you can't make the foreigner
pay his taxes, and the honest voter prefers to pay his own taxes. You can never
make your bill popular by such tomfoolery."

Admit That High I)utips nl- Vouseqeut
High Prices Wi!l restrict the Use ol
Some of tho severest criticisms not
only of special duties and clauses, but
of the whole accursed protective sys-
tem, come from the protected mnanufac-
turers themselves in their struggle with
opposing interests. Mr. S. N. D. North,
secretary of the Woolen Manufacturers'
association, is now and always has been
a stanch prolcctionist. As such he be-
lieves that the 70,000,000 consumers of
this country are legitimate subjects for
plunder and that the manufacturers
are the proper persons to enjoy the pro-
The free wool experiment which we
have been trying for three years, besides
being an object lesson in the way of
cheap woolens, has taught the woolen
manufacturers that they can make as
much or more profit with free wool and
moderate protection, which permits peo-
ple of moderate means to wear real
woolen goods, than with high duties on
both wool and woolens, which restricts
the use of woolens to people in good cir-
cumstances. The manufacturers there-
fore display more than their usual mod-
esty and patriotism in the advice which
they are giving to congress. Mr. North
is in Washington to voice the manufac-
turers' patriotism. Here is part of his
advice as taken from the Washington
correspondence of The Dry Goods Econ-
I am free to say the bill is far from satisfac-
tory to the woolen manufacturers. The chief
fault is to be found with the raw wool duties,
which are so high that our manufacturers will
find themselves sorely embarrassed. It is true
the committee has provided compensatory
duties which are probably sufficient to offset
the duties on raw wool, but the difficulty will
be, in my opinion, that the very considerable
increase in price which must be made to cover
the additional cost of raw material will have
the effect of cutting rl d,).n eonAiuIAplion to an
extent that will 1.(o diastroou. to tLo nl. nufa:

This is practically saying to Dinglcy,
Aldrich and the cthelr ecrvants of the
protected manufacturers at Wash ington:
"Go slow with your high duties and
don't try to protect too many. If you
let everybody into the protection rihgj;
there will be nobody outside to prey
upon and we will have to prey upon
each other. Don't make the mistake of
taxing raw materials too high. We
wouldn't mind it if we could sell our
goods and charge the tax over to the
consumer. But when the tax is so high
that we have to make our prices almost
out of'sight we have found that we can-
not sell so many goods, because the peo-
ple can't afford to wear clothes-that
is, woolen clothes, which are the only
ones worth considering because they are
the only ones which we manufacture.
Our solicitude for the dear American
consumer is such that we do not wish
to compel him to clothe himself in the
skins of beasts, which are neither fash-
ionable nor healthful. Let us not tax
him to death. Let us be reasonable and
encourage him to live and to wear
clothes. By so doing we can keep our
mills running and give employment to
American workingmen at American
wages, which, after all, is the chief ob-
ject aimed at by us protected manufac-
turers. "-Byron W. Holt.

There is comfort in the knowledge so
often expressed, that Dr. Kilnier's Swamp
Root, the great kidney remedy fulfils ev-
ery wish in relieving pain in the back,
kidneys, liver. Ladder annt every part of
the.urinary passages. It corrects inal,il-
ity to hold uritie and scalding pain in pass-
ing it, or bad effects following the use of
liquor, wine or beer, and overcomes that
unpleasant necessity of being compelled
to get up many times during the night to
urinate. The mild and the extraordinary
effect of Swamp-Root is soon realized. It
stands the highest for its wonderful cures
of the most distressing cases. If you need
a medicine you should have the best. Sold

Te purpose of this Association is to Improve the Country
Andrews Bay and to
adjacent to St
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 a.oh 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-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to makeimprovemonts may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
she 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.
Fwm a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
pl tation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price of;ano per acrn, say $'5 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; ost of planting 1st
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each-year thereafter, $20,
It is not extravagant* to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $100 worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
tLe same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coining into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japat. chestnuts, pecans, and ,,any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which

The'Secretary of the Asso-li:tiin will give particular attention to an-
twering letters of inquiry, nid the BUOY will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.

savanna, which it really is, occation-
ally goes dry, the water passing out
through a subterranean passage call-
ed the sink. Where the v water goes
to has never been determined. When
the sink is open the lake goes dry,
and when the outlet becomes gorged
or clicked, a lake from five to seven
miles wide and eighteen miles long is
formed. When the waters of tlhe
h.ke suddenly leave it, thousands ot
alligators, snakes fish and turtles are
left with nothing but mud for their
place of abode. The fish and turtles
perish, but the saurians and reptiles
seek and find other quarters. For
miles along the northern border of
the lake there is a succession of
sinks, averaging in depth all the wry
from twenty five to one hundre:o feet.
Subterranean passages run in every
direction, leaving the ground in the
shape of a honey-comb. The ground
is liable to give way at any time, cre-
ating a new sink. Thle scenery
around the lake, especially .on the
north side, is unique and grand, and
is an attractive feature to strangers
who visit tlis city. The sink has for
yeais been a popular resort for citi-
zens of Gainesvile, who go there to
fish, boat ride and in other ways en-
joy themselves. It is said that this
vast area ot land could be drained at
trifling expense, and were it drained
it would be the largest as well as the
best tract ot productive land in Flor-

The last time it was floode.l was

Inns In Hungary.
Wayside inns in Hungary generally
rejoice in very quaint titles. This one
was called the Dropperin, and had the
usual sign outside-viz, a long pole,
with a wooden ring and a gigantic wine
bottle suspended from it. The system of
keeping the scores is primitive, but
practical. The regular customers and
the innkeeper each have a bit of wood
called rovas, with the name of the
person written on it, and every liter of k
wine consumed is marked by each mak-
ing a notch on his respective bit of
wood. When the score is paid off, both b
the rovas are burned. Consequently you
hear the peasants inviting each other to M
ingyonroviasmora, literally, drink on i
my "knotch stick," which sounds most
comical.-H. Ellen Browning in "Wan-
dorings In Hungary."
A lady passenger in a Great Western
train in England was much disturbed
in her attempts at a nap by some one
singing in the next compartment, so she
asked theguard to interfere. That offil-
cial did so and got laughed at for his r
pains, and the singing went on. At the
next station the lady sent for the sta- t
tion master and requested him to suc-
ceed where the guard had failed. The a
station master went to the next com- b
apartment, and immediately returned to t
apologize. "I am very sorry, madam," f
he said, "but I really cannot ask your d
neighbor to stop singing. She is Mme. a

with them. Th ese litle baby monkeys
sat upon the thigh of the mother, while
her hand was placed around them in a
very human fashion, but the. sermon
was evidently ton high for these little
folks to comprehend. Glancing up, I
saw one of the little onniolk..- cautiously
reach his hand around, and, catching
bold of another baby monkey's tail,
give it a pull.. The other little monkey
struck back, but each molth'r monkey
evidently disappro~:d of" this levity in
church, and eaoh gave its own baby a
box on the ears, as though saying: "Sit
down! Don't you know how to behave
n church?" The little monkeys, thus
reprimanded, turned the most solemn
faces toward the preacher and seemed
;o listen intently to what he was saying.
With the csreptii.:n of a monkey now
nd then trying to catch a flea that was
)iting him in some tender spot, they
;hus sat demurely until the preacher
finished his sermon and until we had
distributed gospels and tracts among the
tudionce and had started for our tents.
Our "celestial audience," seeing oar
'terrestrial audience" dispersing, then,

eImurely walked back and sprang upon

OPEN AIR CONGREGATION WHICH
THEY VOLUNTARILY JOINED.
Some of Them Brought Their Babies With

Showed Signs of Levity-Experience of
Missionaries In India.
The most singular audience that I
ever saw gathered to listen to preaching
was an audience of monkeys, says an
India correspondent of the Boston Gold-
When I commenced work in the re-
gion which I have now occupied for
more than 30 years, I asked two fellow
missionaries to join me in a preaching
tour in the adjacent talk, or county.
We first went with three native assist-
ants to the taluk town, or county seat.
Our tents were pitched in a grove ad-
joining the town. We usually on our
tours went two and two to preach in the
villages; but, this being the talk town,
and the first of our preaching the gospel
in that region, we went in a body into
the native city.
Walking through the cloth, spice,
grain and iron merchants' bazaar streets,
and then through the goldsmiths and
silversmiths' street, around through the
temple street, and then through the
street of Brahman residences, to adver-
tise our presence and incite curiosity to
know what we were about, we finally
took our stand in, the Br:,hnan street,
ald all joined iu silg'ing one of the
benuriful Telugu Chiistian lyrics and
gathered an audience of iuterebt-cd lis-

story, joined togeth r like a ciby block,
with flat roofs an'J a low parapet along
the front of the-rof. One rf our native
assistants read a portion from the gos-
pels, and another preached briefly; then
one of my fellow missionaries followed,
preaching more at Ic ngh, while I
watched the audience, to study the coun-
tenances of the people among whom I
expected to work.
I had noticed that behind the houses
on the opposite side of the street there
was a long row of trees growing in their
back yards, the branches' of which
stretched out over the flat roofs.
Changing to raise my eyes, I noticed
many branches of these trees beginning
to bend downward toward the roofs and
saw the faces of some old jack monkeys
peering out through the foliage. Soon
some of them jumped down and came
forward to see what their "big broth-
ers" in the street were about, as they
stood gazing so intently at these white
men standing on the platform. _pring-
ing upon the parapet, they seated them-
selves, with their hind feet hanging
over in front, and gazing with fixedness
at the preacher, as they saw the people
In the street doing.
Other monkeys followed, until there
was a long row of them thus seated on
the parapet. The late comers I could see
walkfhg along behind the parapet, look-
ing for a place wide enough to get a
seat. Failing to find a wide enough
place between two already seated mon-
keys, they would put up their hands,
and, pushing each one sidewise, would
seem to be saying, "Sit along a little,
please, and give a fellow a seat," until
the "bench" was crowded.
The audience in the street, standing
with their backs toward that row of
houses, did not notice the monkeys, and
so their attention was not distracted by

WORDS WITHOUT A RHYME.
English Language Contahis cveral Whlich
Are Hard to Riu. Against.
There are a dozen words in the Eng-
lish language in everyday use for
which enterprising people have de-
spaired of ever finding a rhyme. The
word "month," for example, is one of
these. "Silver" is a word it seems
very easy to secure a rhyme for, but as a
matter of fact, trying to find something
to rhyme with "silver" nearly drove a
London writer of verse insane long ago.
As a last resort he advertised in the
newspapers and received but one reply.
It came from the master of verbal con-
tortion, W. S. Gilbert, Sir Arthur Sul-
livan's erstwhile partner, who submit-
ted the word "chilver." He wasn't
quite clear, he said, as to what a chil-
ver might be, but he had seen the word
in advertisements of sales of farm stock
and had an idea, which is correct, that
it'described a species of sheep.
"Orange" is another word without
rhyme. "Gulf" is also without an Eng-
lish partner, and culmm" and "cusp"
are alike solitary. Many poets who have
sought in vain for rhymes to "revenge"
and "avenge" will not be appeased
when they learn that but two exist-
"penge" and "Stonehenge." "Coif"
is now, happily for versifiers, growing
obsolete, for there is no word which
rhymes with it. "Scarf" has been dar-
ingly linked at the end of a line with
"half or "calf," but this is a practice
to be discouraged. "Scalp" rhymes only
with "Alp," but, like "babe" and
astrolabee," it would require much in-
genuity to find an excuse for bringing
these words into juxtaposition. "False"
iLa en several occasions, by an abuse of
poetic license, been associated with
'valse," though the correct French pro-
nunciation of the latter word would de-
stroy the rhyme.
Of the names of places the African
town of Timbuktu has long been fa-
mous for being without rhyme. The
nearest success that any poet has ever
attained in this respect was when in
some old verses describing a desert hunt
"cassowary" was made to rhyme with
"missionary" and "Timbuktu" with
"thin buck too. "-New York Press.
She Suspected It.
"Why, Mrs. Parvenu, this unmis-
takably an old master," said the entbu-
"That's just what I told John. I'll
send it back to have it repainted and a
new frame put on." -
