The Quarantine question.
Times-Union and Citizen Special.
A paragraph in the sundry civil

cusaion of the quarantine question in
the House a few days ago, and Con-
gressnmatt Davis took advantage to
compliment the Florida health offi-
cials on their good work last sum-

expenditure of certain enami hereto-
fore appropriated to aid state and lo-
cal boards of health in the event of
an epidemic. Mr. Bailer of Texas,

proposition to police arbitrary and

Virginia gladly hurried away upon
an errand which she knew promised
the speedy release of her lover.
As oon as Virginia had departed Mr.
Barnes re-entered the secret chamber,
passing, as before, through the ceiling
of the closet.
His first endeavor was to learn how
this man had taken his life. This was
not difficult. A small charcoal furnace
and the strong odor of gas permeating
the place for some time after he had
opened the skylight, which was the on-
ly means of ventilation and light,
plainly suggested suicide. This point
being settled, he examined the other
things lying about These were neces-
sarily few, as the place was very small
The only articles of furniture were a ta-
ble and a chair unless account be taken
of a small closet nailed against the
wall, in which was a stock of provi-
sions. He also found a suit of clothes.
Mr. Barnes pondered over this for a few
minutes, and then the idea occurred to
him that it was to bring these, the gar-
ments which Lewis had worn on the
night of the crime, and for which, it
will be remembered, Burrows had
searched in vain, that the man had en-
tered the secret room on the night when
Burrows was disturbed by his move-
It will also be recalled to mind that
the younger detective had a theory
which would in a measure be substan-
tiated if these were found to be perfo-
rated by a bullet, as that would tend to
show that the deceased had been shot,
that he had then undressed and retired
to bis bed, to be afterward awakened
and killed by a second shot Mr. Barnes
examined these articles with interest
If there were any bullet hole, it would
not fit his own theory of thecase. It
was therefore with much satisfaction
that he soon determined that there was
none. Next he turned over the papers
with which the table was littered, and
soon an ejaculation of surprise and
pleasure attested the fact that he had
made an important discovery. He held
in his hand a bundle of manuscript
bearing the ominous heading, "My Con-
fession," followed by the words, "For
Mr. Barnes, should he find this first."
With impatience and curiosity Mr.
Barnes sat on the one chair and read
the following, occasionally emitting a
grunt of satisfaction as point after point
in the mystery was explained and all
fitted in with his own theory of the
crime. The confession is here given

was the supper, the outceme of which
encouraged the ladies immensely, for

who contributed to make the whole af-
fair a success.

-Taxes for the year 1897 are.now
due and will become delinquent. April
1, 1898, unless the time for payment is
extended before that time, which it is
not likely to be. All those who expect
the BUOY to attend to the payment of
same are advised to make certain that
they have a credit on our tax book
sufficient to meet the amount, which
will mean that the tax will certainly be
paid, as heretofore; but if such.credit
is not shown, even though the amount
seems insignificant, they just as cer-
tainly will not be paid unless some sue-
cial arrangement is made to that end.
The tax this year is 17i -mills, as com-
pared with 121 mills last year; hence
in providing for payment this year, add
about 33 per cent., or one-third more
than the amount shown upon your re-
ceiptfor 1896. This notice shall be
deemed sufficient for all patrons of the
BuoY who wish it to attend to the pay-
ment of their taxes,

libraries, in which the history, tradi-
tions and customers of the pi ',,!e v(w-re re-
corded. All these books that the Span-
ish priests could lay their hand. upon
they burned. Four only have come
down to us-priceless relics that in
some unknown n anner found their way
into European libraries, where they lay
hidden until unearthed by scholars of
recent years. The books of the Mlaas
consisted of long strips of paper made
from maguey fiber, and folded after the
manner of a screen so as to form ages
about 9 by 5 inches. These were Cover-
ed with hieroglyphic characters, very
neatly drawn by hand, in brilliant col-
ors. Boards were fastened on the outfilo
pages, and the completed book looked
like a neat volume of largo octavo size.
The characters in which they are -writ-
ton are tho same as thoso found upon
the stone tablets and monuments in the
ruined cities of Paleuque and Copan.

Lord Alvanley followed Sheridan and
Brmmell as- a sayer of good things, but
those most generally quoted have a
touoh of sarcastic malice, for cynical
talk was a fashion of- the time. When
Brummell made his midnight flitting to
Boulogne at thejuit of the Jews, he re-
marked oanpplaoently, "Brummell has
done quite right to be off; it was Solb-
mon's judgment." He was a kindheart-
ed man and gave many proofs of gen-
erosity to acquaintances in distress. One
of those he had assisted was the well
known Jack Talbot, a reckless prodigal,
who had repeatedly borrowed of him.
When Talbot was beggared and lying
on his deathbed, Alvanley met his doc-
tor and inquired about the invalid. The
answer was: "My lord, I fear he is in
a bad way. I had to. use the lancet."
"You should have tapped him, doctor,"
aiid Alvanley coolly. "I fear he has
more claret than blood in his veins."
Much more excusable, considering the
man and the circumstances, was Alvan-
ley's expostulation when he had been
persuaded to dine with the eccentric
millionaire Neeld in his new mansion
in Grosvenor square. The host, with
the vulgarity of a nouveau riche, was ex-
patiating on the sumptuous decorations
of the apartment and, in the words of
Milton, "letting dinner cool." "I don't
care what'your gilding cost," said Al-
vanley bluntly, "but I am mot anxious
to make a trial of your carving, for I
am famished. "-Cornhill Magazine.

a very illegible hand, once sent an un-

latter studiI 1 it a minute, gave it up in
despair and .hen sat down and wrote in
reply: "I shall be most happy to dine
with you tomorrow at 6. Kindest re-
gards to your wife," etc. In less than
half an hour his friend appeared breath-
less at his door.
"There's some misunderstanding,"
he said anxiously. "I wrote you a note
asking you if you could play the piano
part of the trio at Brown's recital, and
here you've sent me an acceptance of a
dinner'invitation, but I didn't invite
you to dinner."
"Well," returned the other blandly,
"I didn't suppose you'd really sent me
an invitation to dinner, but I couldn't
tead a word of your nitote, and in tliat
case hereafter I mean always to take it
for granted that you're asking me to

The Treating Habit.
It was Pope Telcsphorus, who died
before the ar 150 A. D., who institut-
ed Christmas as a festival, though for
some time it was irregularly held in
December, April and May. But for cen-
turies before there had been a feast of
Yule among the northern nations, whose
great enjoyment was in drinking the
wassail bowl or cup. Nothing gave
them so much delight as indulgence in
"carousing ale," especially at the sea-
son of short days, when fighting was
ended. It was likewise the custom at all
their feasts"for the masterof the house
to fill a large bowl or pitcher, to drink
out of it first himself and then give to
him that sat next, and so it went
around." This may have been theorigin
of that popular American custom known
as "treating." It is certain that upon
our Christian observance of this glorious
day have been ingrafted habits taken
from rude and barbarous people.-St.

A Rainfall of Seeds.
Some days ago the province of Ma-
cerata, in Italy, was the scene of an ex-
traordinary phenomenon. Half an hour
before sunset an immense number of
small blood colored clouds covered the
sky. About an hour later a cyclone
storm burst, and immediately the air
became filled with myriads of small
seeds. The seeds fell over town and
country, covering the ground to a depth
of about half an inch. The next day the
whole of the scientists of Macerata were
abroad,in order to find some explana-
Professor Cardinali, a celebrated
Italian naturalist, stated that the seeds
were of the genus cercis, commonly
called Judas tree, and that they belong-
ed to an order of leguminossse found
only in central Africa or the Antilles
It was found, upon examination, that a
great number of the seeds were actually
i. the first stage of germination.-

There is ample authority for the
statement that before the introduction
of tobacco it was customary to inhale
the smoke of burned herbs for medici-
nal purposes. There is, however, so far
as I know, no authority for supposing
that pipes at all resembling our tobacco
pipes were used for this purpose. Lyte
says of coltsfoot:
"The perfume of the dried leaves
ledde upon quicke coles, taken into the
mouth through the pipe of a funnell,
or tunnel, helpeth such as are troubled
with the shortnesse of winde, and fetche
their breath thick or often, and do (sic)
break without danger the impostems
of the breast.''
This is the usual form of the direc-
tions given in suoh cases, and jcGrard

INCORPORATED OCT. 13. 1897.
#r- ' i ;
The purpose of this Company is to Improve the Country adjacent toS t
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
To accomplish this the Company proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
Und-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will improve them by the
rsotiont of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of eash tract so disposed of, und 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
S Source of Revenue to its Owner.
As TO RELIABILITY OF THE COMPANY
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Com-
pany. reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Company
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 Company .shall satisfacto-
ialy show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Company will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
allproperty 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
ptantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price or ;ano per acre, say $2Sto $50; cost of clearing, say $20; -oat of planting lst
year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter,$20,
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard willon the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $'O) worth of fruit and of peaches nearly or quite
the sine, while figs should do even better than that: Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnut., Japan. chestnuts, pecans, and many other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
s' idered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss
The Secretary of the l( company will give particular attention to an-
wrring letters of inquiry, and the Buor will in its answers to correspondents an-

It is necessary, then, that oui
natural love of play should have
fuller and wiser development in
youth, und that schools should be as
composite as the pupils. The word
"school" originally meant a state ol
ease, a place of leisure and retire-
ment from work, and not a workshop
for forcing young brains to their ut-
most powers. Our youth have so
much to learn in a briet period that
they have no time to think. Rote
and cramming take the place of re-
flection. Competitive examinations
are destroying individuality, and re-
ducing all to the same dead level.
No more un philosophic mode was
ever devised by educational quack-
ery, and in time we may rival the
Chinese, who by long ages of com-
pe itive examinations have become
mentally and morally stunted and
stereotyped to the same dull pat-
The school should be a place for
play, and for mental and manual
work combined. Bodily exercises
and games should be as carefully
taught as grammar, and the fingers
and brains trained together. Play,
work and book-learning might be
taught in turn, and schools be made
delightful and useful. As it is, chil-
dren attend them for years and learn
comparatively nothing, because they
are pedantic prisons where they are
immured without interest or healthy
excitement. If we except cricket and
football, which do not suit every one,
can only be played at certain times
and are dangerous in themselves,
there is absolutely nothing to inter-
eat the majority of children. Many
of the rich schools, it is true, have
workshops, but tho schools for the
middle classes and poor should have
them also. The power of observa-
tion is so rare because in the train-
ing of the young it is so seldom ex-
ercised. If schools included play and
manual work as important parts is
their curriculum, observation and in-
telligence would be quickened all
around, and the pupils would soon
find whit they were most fit for. All
this should apply equally to girls as
well as boys. None should be ex-
cluded from want of fees, for the cost
would be borne as that of the Board
school is now. In a few years it
would be ret u rned'to the nation forty
fold by an increase of health, happi.
ness and prosperity. The adults
who shall have been brought up un-
der this course of compound instruc-
tion will know how to make the best
use of such leisure as they may be
able to command. In the time for
work they will be more contented and
more intelligent workers, and in play
time will enjoy more real and ration-
We know all this will not be just
yet, but it will come. Our sanitary
improvements during the last few
years have increased immensely.
Others must soon follow. It would
be absurd to suppose that the pres-
ent irrational and high-pressure sys-
tem of education can continue forever.
Weak chests, ophthalmia, and grow-
ing insanity, will speak tor them-
selves and compel us to better meth.
ods. For assuredly, education to be
complete must recognize the wants of
a progressive humanity.

church writing at the end of the
second century, said: "For what

nmay be sanctifiedi to sacred purposes
as well as to secular; that it may be
an act of true worship as well as of
Personal enjoyment. It is not for
nothing that man is a laughing ani-
nal, nor is wholesome mirth inferior
to grave demeanor. Work is good.
Play is good, also. Both are neces-
sary to complete the would-be perfect
tman. Let all our faculties, then, be
fairly indulged. Let there be a time
for work and a time for play, so that
each be a help to each and a foil to
the evils of the other.
A Freak of Nature.
The Thampson Lake, two miles
north of Grand Ridge, Fla, perform-
ed its periodic freak of emptying it-
self through its subterranean passage
one day last week, says The Florida
Times Union. As soon as it wa:s
known that the water was running
out, the whole country was on the
lookout and ready to capture the fish
that were to be left oh dry land.
Wagonloads were carried away.
This lake embraces several ac.es
and had a mean depth of about
twenty feet. It has no settled time
for running out, but has performed
the strange feat beverel tiuies in the
memory of the old settlers. Its last
emptying was a year ago, when it rc-
mained dry for several weeks, hence
the presence of such quantities of fish
adl of such large sizes is a mystery,
An Armor-Plated Fish.
Dr .A. C. Pailton, of Portland, Ore,,
has received from a friend who is
wintering on the coast of the Gulf of
Mexico the skin of a fish the like of
which has never been seen there be-
fore. The scales are diamond shaped
and are of bone, the edges being as
sharp as lsharks' teeth. In fact, the
skin looks as if it was covered with
small sharks' teeth fitted neatly to-
gether. The fish was about fifty
inches in length. No fish with coin-
mon scales could stand a ghost of a

Iis wife, at the doctor's orders, pre-

she stated to put it on it proved to

be a fine tub lined with celluloid,
which served as a sort of cuameol
The heat of the poultice started the

THE COLUMBIA GARDEN PLOW,
Thi s the latest and most complete
Isad low for working plants in the garden. It
is s1elt-adjurstable; the weight the block to
which the blade is attached keeps it in the
ground, and the depth of plowing is regulated
by lifting the handles. A boy or girl of ten
Years can handle it with perfect ease. It has a
24-in.h steel wheel, the height of which makes
Sthe plow light of draft. It has five blades: 1 is
a turning mold, 2 a shovel, 3 a sweepor weeding
blade, 4 a bull-tongue, 5 a rake. Wrench
with each plow.
SWe have made arrangements b3

the factory price, $3,.75, with
freight to St. Andrews Bay about 75 cents, making the plow, delivered
$4.50. But the Buoy proposes to do better than this and will send the BuoY
