pleaded their aue, a granite stone
marks the spot, says a Quincy special
dispatch to the St. Louis Globe-Demo-
crat For ages this stone ha rested
a a ravine in Melrose township,
Adam county, about six miles south-
east of Quincy. It is fifty-three inchesla
thfk, sixty inches wide and seventy
labes long. It weighs about six tons.
On the evening of the first day of
the year 1906, a mot desolate night,
when a cold, wintry rain was falling
In torrents, men 'and horses by violent
exertions splashed their way through
halt frozen mire and deposited the
granite bowlder in the southeast cor-
ner of Washington square, Quincy.
About one-third of the bowider was
submerged below the surface of the
earth. Later on the committee, con-
lsting of Dr. J. B. Shawgo, Dr. Jo-
seph Robbins and George M. James,
acting for the Historical society of
Quincy, had the legend, "Lincoln-
Douglas Debate, Oct 13, 1858," chis-
eled on the top of the bowlder.
In two other places outside of Quincy
a granite bowlder has been selected as
a marker In commemoration of the de-
bates which, by reason of the national
principle they involved and the mag-
nificent intellects of the debaters, are
of such enduring memory to the Amer-
lean people as to make granite a pecul-

The historical value of the debates
has also been brought to the direct at-
tention of the rising population by
means of a forty page pamphlet pre-
pared by a committee from the advi-
sory commission to the board of direct-
ors of the Illinois state historical libra-
ry. The pamphlet has been issued by
F. G. Blair. state superintendent of
public instruction. The object of the
pamphlet Is to. furnish material for
programmes for the schools of the
state at the time of the anniversary
celebrations this summer and fall and
also to provide material for the pupils
for essays In connection iilth the cele-
bration or in token of the debates.

The programme for the anniversary
celebration at Qulncy Oct. 18 Is yet in
a frmative stage. but a distinct organ-
latloa has been formed for the pur-
pose of arranging for the celebration
and is hard at work. The name of the
association is the Lincoln-Douglas
Semlentennial society.
The list of orators is not yet corm-
pleted. One speaker will deliver the
Lincoln address and another the Doug-
las address. Judge George Imnnds
of Carthage, Hancock county. III, an
Intimate friend of Douglas and Ln.
coln. will speak on "Personal Reminis-
cences of Lincoln." Judge Edmunds
Is now in his eighty-seventh year.
H. Collins delivers the opening a-
dress. A feature of the musical pro*
gramme will be singing of 1858 cam-
paign songs and fife and drum music
by a contingent of the civil war mu-
sicians. Invitations will be sent out to
all persons known to have attended
the debate and for whom special seats
will be reserved.
It is the intention of the society to
reproduce as far as possible the varl-
aus public features of the original de-
bate, which would include processions,
typical banners and special illumina-
tlons at night. Quite a number who
attended the debate survive, and some
still reside in Quincy.
The last of the seven debates be-
tween the intellectual giants occurred
Oct. 15 at Alton. The speaker's stand
was on the east side of what was then
the new city hall. which is still stand-
ing and used for the same purposes.
The programme at Alton for the anni-
versary celebration will Include a
homecoming feature, beginning on the
14th and ending the 10th.

New Lease of Life Per Heoter, Who
Went a Mile in :35 In W174.
Believed to be the oldest horse in the
United States, Hector, the pet of Fred
Dusell's stable an Kane county. Il.,
will be fitted with a complete set of
false teeth as a birthday present, says
a Bloomington (Ill.) dispatch. Dusell
asserts the hose was thirty-nine years
old the other day, and several men
corroborated him, saying they remem-
ber that In 1874 Hector, then four
years old, stepped a mile in 2"35, at
that time a fast performance.
The Dusell family dentist will make
the teeth. Hector has only a few
stumps and for six months has lived
on soft mashes. Duzell had planned
to have the horse destroyed, but his
wife and children prevailed upon him
to revoke the sentence and instead to
invest In false teeth for the old cam-
Hector won a hard trotting match
when he was fifteen years old. For
seventeen years he jogged between the
shafts of the Duzell family buggy, and
for seven years he has lived a life of
leisure as an honored pensioner. Hec-
tor's teeth are to be of gold, and they
will cost more than Hector was worth
in his palmiest days.

Posies For Veteran Policeman.
Some strange woman, veiled most of
the time, has been keeping the veteran
policeman Maurice Noonan of Water-
bury, Conn.. in flowers for his button-
hole. The other day her gift was a
bouquet which he was forced to give
to friends amid deep blushes. Noonan
is very popular, and because of this e
was selected some time ago for street
crossing duty where the crowds are
greatest at midday. He has the best
record for rough and tumble fighting iu
the department.

Ceiling and Cieling.
The frequent occurrence of e before
1 in certain words in manuscripts and
printed books of the seventeenth and
eighteenth centuries in place of the
now customary spelling is a feature
which has often forced itself on my at-
tention. It seems to me that the mod-
ern way is in these older writings
comparatively seldom met with. I
have observed the following among oth-
er instances: Felld, nelce, atchelve-
ment, releif, relelfe, greife; also, as
proper names, Felld. Purfelld, Felld-
Ing. etc. The causes which have led to
the change might furnish an Interest-
ing subject for discussion. In some
eighteenth century writings (the Bur-
rell manuscripts, for instance) occurs
the word cleled.-London Standard.
The Elephant's Feet.
Accustomed to the dry climate of the
Indies, the elephants imported to tem-
perate and rainy countries are subject
to many diseases of the flesh and skin
to which the veterinary surgeons of
national and municipal zoological gar-
dens are compelled to give the closest
watch. The smallest scratch on the
sole of an elephant's foot is apt to be-
come serious unless immediately treat-
ed with an antiseptic, and the horned
substance of the feet, not being ex-
posed to thle wear Iproduced Iy roam-
ing through a wilderness, grows in
captivity as rapidly as the finger nails
of a human tling. The veterinary sur-
geon trims these nails or horned sub-
stances with a chisel and mallet.
Confederate Capitol of Missouri.
The old Masonic hall at Neosho. in
Newton county, has been fitly termed
"the Confederate capitol of Missouri."
It was there that Governor C. F. Jack-
son convened a small fraction of the
Twenty-first general assembly, ten
members of the senate and thirty-nine
of the house. In special session Oct. 21.

On account of the new 8-hour law
passed by congress in the interest d
telegraphers, and also on account of e
many new railroads being built and old
lines extended, an unusual demand for
operators has been created. Comnerm-
tive estimates have placed the number
of additional operators that will be re-
quired during the next ten months at
approximately 20,000.
PORTUNITY! Enroll in our school
NOW and in only four to six months we
will haveyou qualified for splendid po-
sitions. Telegraph operators receive
from $50.00 upwards. Our school has
been established twenty years;its equip-
ment is perfect; instruction thorough
and practical; positions positively puar-
anteed our graduates. Board in New-
nan is very cheap; the town is health-

Apparel tly there is some friction
betwem Chairman Hitchcock and
Secretary Dover, of the Republican
mtldml committee, which would in-
dia that the old Hanna machine
b hanging back in the traces.

Next month three state elections
wil be held, but they will not fore-
dledow the result of the presidential
election. The states to elect officers
are Maine, Arkansas and Vermont.
Weetino in these states will be held
on the 14th.

The people of Brevard county will
decide at the polls next WedanesdOy
whether they want to saddle upon
themselves a bonded indebtedness for
a term of years, or a heavy special
tax for at least five years for the
erection of a new court house in some
other part of the county.

And now it is given out that to
nominate Hughes for governor of
New York would cost the Taft ticket
thousands of votes and that Roosevelt
has accordingly called hands off and
Hughes will not be nominated by ac-
clamation or in any other manner.
It looks like a split off in any event.

To Willam Randolph Hearst, greet-
ing and a tip: If the October indi-
cations are favorable to Bryan's elec-
tion you won't have enough of your
independence league left in line to
furnish election inspectors in Novem-
ber. Your hired-man party will skip
like harvest hands to the dinner horn.

If $40,000 could be expended ju-
diciously upon the public roads of
Brevard county it would be of great-
er benefit to us as a community than
ten new court houses. Give us some-
thing that will benefit every man,
woman and child in the county and
let the $40,000 court houses stand
down for a few years until we have
10,000 or 15,000 population.

The citizens of Brevard have in
sight on the part of Cocoa for the lo-
cation of the county site there the
bum of $5,360 and a small lot (not a
square) which is merely a drop in
the bucket to what the county must
spend if they make the change of site
to that place. Eau Gallie has made
a better offer than Cocoa and a dis-
interested person so decides between

those two places, but the people that
do a little thinking for themselves
must see that it is best for all the
whole county to retain the site at Ti-
tusville and be prosperous.

The county site removers were too
eager. They sprung that question
before they found out how much the
county actually lost in the tire. They
did not wait for the embers to cool
off. After they discovered the loss
was not great they would not admit
their error and endeavored to bolster
up their forlorn hope with a promise
made on the part of the edit;) of the
Cocoa and Rockledge News that the
people of Brevard will not be taxed
one cent for county buildings if they
vote to put the county seat at Cocoa.
There has been no proposition made
that will justify such an assertion.
and if it is made in the way of a last-
hour promise, remember, voter, that
it is not holding, as THE STAR of July
24th cited the law that holds that
such promises or even bonds for per-
formance of same cannot be enforced
in a case of this kind.

Site at Titmille


If is being argWed through the press
by partisan of Cocoa theatre is only
$10,000 worth of county property at
Titusville, and that Cocoa either has or
will raise $10,000, so that a change of
the county site to that place would not
involve any additional taxation. The
statement is so wide of the facts that it
will carry its own reputation in the
minds of most taxpayers, but a con-
servative statement of the facts may be
The county buildings at Titusville
consist of a courthouse, the clerk's of-
fice, the county judge s office, and the
foundations, cement floor and walls of
the first story of the jail recently burn-
ed; also a pump-house, with engineand
pump, an outhouse with plumbing, and
the county's interest in the sanitary
sewer leading from the jail and out-
buildings to the Indian River.
The courthouse lot is well fenced and
drained, and considerable county money
has been expended upon it, and some
outhouses are not mentioned in the
above inventory.
It has been the policy of the County
Commissioners to keep the valuable
records of the Clerk's office and of the
County Judge's office in separate build-
ings, so that in case the courthouse was
destroyed by fire these records would
be preserved. That this policy is wise
is shown by the destruction of the rec-
ords of the United States Court in
Jacksonville when that building was
burned some ten years ago; by the de-
struction of many valuable records in
St. Augustine when the courthouse was
destroyed by fire there, within the
memory of all of us; by the complete
wiping out of the records both of the
Circuit Court and the Probate Court in
the Jacksonville fire, and by other fires
which will occur to the reader.
When it is known that indictments
are kept in the courthouse there is al-
ways a temptation to burn it. The
offices of the Clerk of the Circuit Court
and of the County Judge, in Titusville,
are both brick buildings, and the rec-
ords are kept in fire-proof vaults built
into these buildings. The buildings are
detached from other exposures and the
records are safer by far than if they
were put into the courthouse building.
The present courthouse at Titusville
is ample for all of the needs of the
county for years to come, and there is
no movement on foot at Titusville for
the erection of a new building, nor
could a new courthouse be erected here
by increasing the taxes except in two
ways-one by imposing a special build-
ing tax, and the other by issuing county
bonds. A building tax could nut be im-
posed without first advertising for 30
days that the Commissioners proposed
to consider the imposition of the tax at
a meeting specified in the notice, after
hearing citizens and taxpayers as to the
propriety of such increased taxation.
Such hearing and notice is especially
provided for by the last legislature of
lorida, and as the Commissioners come
from different districts in the county
the taxpayers may rest assured that no
building tax would be imposed against
the wishes of the taxpayers.
To build a courthouse by the selling
of county bonds would require an elec-
tion. at which the bonds would have to
be approved by a majority of the vo-
ters of the county. The taxpayer is
therefore pretty well secured against
increased taxation if the county seat re-
mains at Titusville.
I have hearn it stated on reliable au-
th<,rity, and the fact is confirmed by my
own observation, that for some years
past there ha.- been less crime in Bre-
vard county than in any other county in
the State of Floridla. so that the neceNs-
sity for a new courthouse at Titusvlile
is not apparent. The court has very iit-
tl. to do at its terms here.
N,ow as to the value of the county

is worth that amount. It is said that

,urdetnsorrne to the freeholders, who al-
ways uinel the taxes coming due when
money is hard to raise or they have
theirr uses for it. but it tends to lower
values and retard sales, and thus dimin-
ish the capital of the land owners, for
by far the greater part of the capital of
our people is invested in their lands.

$Zo4. BO, wnicn ine county will e out
of pocket by the abandonment of Titus-
ville as the county seat.
Now as to the county's expenditures
at Cocoa, which would be involved in
the establishment of the county seat a4
that place:
It has been proposed that the jail,
courthouse and all county offices should
be put in one fire-proof county building,
and as the lot upon which it is proposed
to put the county building at Cocoa is
not large it would be necessary to make
such a combination if the courthouse is
erected on that lot.
At Kissimmee, in Osceola county,
the same plan was carried out, the jail
being put under the courthouse; but
the results have been very unsatisfac-
tory. There is always an odor from a
jail no matter how cleanly the custo-
dian may be. It sometimes happens
that noisy persons are confined there.
Not many years since we had a person
convicted of murder in the Titusville
jail who insisted on singing psalms
throughout the day and most of the
night, and there seemed to be no rea-
sonable way to prevent it. But the
most serioa:s objection is from a sani-
tary of view. the court and med-
ica authorities having at times inter-
fered in the case of the Kissimmee jail
in the interest of humanity. The base-
ment of a courthouse is not the proper
plae, in this climate, to continue human
Another objection is that if the build-
ing should Lurn out not to be lire proof
the valuable property anti county rec-
ords might be destroyed; but. waiving
all of these objections, if one fire-proof
building is to be put up at Cocoa capa-
ble of accommoltating the court and all
county officers as well as the jail, and
is to be absolutely tire proof, what will
be the cost of such a structure''
Is it unreasonable to say that by the
time this structure was completed, and
all the county olfiers housed in it, that
the county would be out at least S25.-
(Mn O.OW? the people of Cocca woull nat-
urally be anxious that the building.

practically a total loss. The same is
true of the vault in the County .Judge's
building. This vault cmnpri-,es mor-
than half of the building itself.

The water tanks, p'unlp hc,use, and

be thrown away.

while the front upstairs washed a

and found to be in good e.-lt-n The
floor of the jail itself i of cment, and
of course is uninjured, and this is true
of the steel cages, as there was very
little heat in the lower part of the
building at the time of the fire. A re-
sponsible contractor has offered to
strengthen the present walls and restore
the present jail as a one-story structure,
which is all there is need for now a
there is no occasion for an armory, for
the sum of $2,900. The building, when
restored, not counting the value of the
steel cages, will serve its purpo as
well as ever and will be worth, at a : ..: .
conservative estimate, $7,000; and as ...
$2,250 insurance money has been col-
lected on the sheriff's house, the restor-

Let Us Be Honest
In the Melbourne Times of August
8th thde appears a very keen and
sensible article on the expense to the
taxpayer if the county site is re-
moved to Cocoa from Mr. Farley, of
Malabar, after printing which, the
editor attempts a reply.
The gist of this reply (?) is the fol-
lowing: "We make the emphatic
statement to Mr. Farley that the peo-
ple of Brevard will not be taxed ONE
CENT for county buildings if they
vote to put the county seat at Co-
coa." In the next column of the
same paper there appears a certifi-
cate of Mr. R. B. Holmes, the cashier
of the Brevard County State Bank,
at Cocoa, that only $5,360 cash has
been raised by that place towards
the expenses of removing the county
site. The deficiency, it appears, is
to be made up of "EMPHATIC
Mr. Farley, in his article, refers to
the claim that Cocoa has donated a
lot for the county buildings worth
$2500, and remarks that "this seems
a great deal of money for a lot at
Cocoa." It is obvious that the tax
payers are not to be deceived by wild
Why don't the Cocoa people let
the voters know where the lot is they
propose to give, so that we may have
its size and location, make a reason-
able estimate of its value and inves-
tigate the title? Are the voters
ready to accept this lot in the air for
$2,500 ? Are they willing to accept
"Emphatic Statements" that they
will not be taxed ONE CENT if the
county site is removed to Cocoa, in
lieu of the cash ?
Brothers, why not be honest? It
takes a "smart" (?) man to be a
rogue. G~Eo. 1M. M[oBBINS.

James J. Hill Is part owner of these

price In excess of that for which the
entire property was offered him fif-

discovery and development of these
auines would fill a book in Itself. About
lerty-five years ago a young pros-
pector of the name of Fernie left

the things he had found. Every one

worthless without a railroad, and for
many years little or nothing was done
with It. Fernle went to Hll and of-

Remarkable Mechanism That Shows
All the Earth's Movements.
All the movements of the earth are
represented by a remarkable astronom-
ical clock which was recently placed
on public view at the American Mu-
seum of Natural History in New York
city. It was designed by Dr. Herman
C. Bumpus, the director of the institu-
tion. and is the result of months of
patient experiment.
It not only shows the daily rotation
of the earth upon its axes. but the mo-
tion about the sun, and also demon-
strates through all the year the
changes which cause the march of
the seasons.
The earth is a globe of paper ,com-
position four feet in diameter, while
the sun is a stereopticon placed at a
distance of ten feet. The light from
the stereopticon shines upon the sphere
in such a manner as to Illuminate half
of it at a time. The shadow of a wire
which Is back of the lens c,,rresponds
to the meridian of New York.
The earth is caused to revolve by
meaus of a shaft which derives Its
power from a small Howard steeple
clock. This shaft passes through a
wooden tunnel and communicates its
power to bevel gears, which cause the
sphere to be always changing its poise..
By watching the meridian shadow the
observer can always tell the time of
day with mathematical! ac,'urac~y.
No device of its kind has ever bIeen
exhibited in a museum for the instruc-
thin of the public, and this astronom-
It A:1 clock rivals in Its accuracy and In-
the painstaking way in which It Is
constlrcted the most dell.ate iinstru-
ments to be seen In well c'iquiplud ol h-

oua and surrounded by an under-
growth which would make a fire that
weld burn like an Inferno Any one
who has not seen a forest ire In this
kind of timber has no conception' of
the rapidity and fierceaes with which
it burns.
"The fir undoubtedly was started
by carelem fishing parties or by sparks
hrom pasting locomotives. The forest
regulations are very strict, and the
mounted police patrol the territory
carefully. This Is the first time a fire
of such magnitude ever occurred li
the district, and my only explanation
of It Is that several fires must have
been started simultaneously from dif-
ferent causes and then burned to
gether. I do not put any faith in the
Incendiary theory. Any one who would
have cause for starting such a tire
would know that it would simply in-
jure himself and his own people. Once
such a flre gvt. under way no human
agency can bend it off.
"The measures employed in praiirie
fires, starting another blaze to meet It.
riding with wet blankets and digging
trenches, are of no avail in the big
woods. Such a fire can only be extin-
guished by a heavy rain or by burning

hWsiN About His Oret Cau-
"'Kim as aa Mediater at Cel-
- l .of His Disesestnees In
wmag e*me Pminted Questioen.

r WUlliam Bod Allison, dean
O the m-atW, who mently died at his
beme l Dubuqu, la.., bad the reputa-
tlUa ao beig the most cautious man In
public life. He took no chances, but
always qualified his statements. This
was never more clearly shown than
when a citizen of Dubuque made a bet
that be could force the senator to say
"Yes" to a direct proposition. Half a
doen friends went along to see the
miracle p*formed. They entered All-
on's office and chatted on various top-
le. Presently a lock of sheep, newly
sheared, came by.
"Those sheep have Just been sheared,
amator." said the man who had made
the bet winking at his companions.
enator Allison gCaed earnestly at
the sheep. Then he softly replied. "It
looks like it on this side."
One day In the senate this anecdote
was duplicated after a fashion. There
had been discussion about the wisdom
of appropriating a lump sum annually
for keeping the sidewalks and streets
of Washington free from snow and lee.
Mr. Allison was drawn into the discus-
"Snow has been falling on the streets
and sidewalks of Washington for many
years past," observed Mr. Allison.
"And will for many years to come,"
lntorposed Senator Spooner.
"As to that," replied Senator Allison.
"I will not propbea."
At college some of the traits of char-
aeter which have since been observed
to Senator Allison were conspicuous.
An old classmate of his once said of
him: "Allison was a born politician.
He never gave offense. I was at col-
ege with him and in his class. He
was known then as the mediator. It
there was a difference between stu-
dents Allison was the arbitrator. He
always commanded the respect of his
teachers and the confidence of his
classmates. He was one of the few
young men I have known who had in
a very remarkable degree the power of
reerve. He had very many cordial
friends, but no special intimates, and
even to the select few be gave no un-
limited insight Into the workings of
his heart and mind. He was even then
self reliant and discreet."
"The great pacificator of the senate"
was the name given to Senator Allison
by his colleagues, and the history of
some of the misunderstandings whic'li
Senator Allison smoothed away anl
some of the compromises he effected
shows? that the title was d~served.

All the blood in your body passes through
your kidneys once every three minutes.
The kidneys are your
blood purifiers, they fil-
l) ter out the waste or
impurities in the blood.
If they are sick or out
of order, they fail to do
VJ their work.
Pains, aches and rheu-
Smatism come from ex-
Scess of uric acid in the
Blood, due to neglected
kidney trouble.
SKidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in pumping thick, kidney-
poisoned blood through veins and arteries.
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin-
ning in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild
