DeLand Hotel Rumor
The Orange City correspondent of
the De Land Record says that there
is a rumor that a popular DeLand
hotel will soon be added to the Flag-
ler hotel system, and that the Titus-
ville branch to Sanford, of the Flori-
da East Coast railway system, will
be extended north from Enterprise,
via Orange City to DeLand, "and no
one hears how much farther." Such
a road would do a great passenger
and freight business from the south-
western part of the state north.
Thursday Half Holiday
We, the undersigned merchants of Ti-
tusville, Fla., hereby agree to closeour
places of business one-half day Thurs-
day of each week to close at 12 noon
and remain closed until the following

the first day of May until the first day
of September, 1909. We further agree
to pay to the committee the sum of $2

Jenneo as an Eater.
Dr. Jenner, the famous English
physician, was a great tea drinker
and very abstemious, never taking
any stimulant except a measured
glass of brandy when he had indi-
eSt ion. Once for that cause he
lved on stewed chops and rice for
luncheon and dinner, with tea, for
a couple of years, but ordinarily he
was a great feeder.
"I recollect," said his friend, Dr.
Cooper Bentham, "on one occasion
Reynolds came to see him. Jenner
was at dinner. He had soup, fish,
the greater part of a chicken,- and
he was in the middle of a huge rice
pudding when Reynolds entered and
asked him ho# he was. Jenner
drew a pitiful sigh and replied, 'I
am not at all well-no appetite.'"
The Last of the Judicial Preoeutlent
and Exeoutions.
Sir Matthew Hale, it is true, had
hanged two poor women at Cam-
bridge in 1664, but a few years later
Lord Chief Justice liolt set him-
self strongly against such charges.
and in. every case tried before him
directed the jury to bring in a \er-
dict of acquittal. In a celebrated
trial at Guildford in 1701 not only
was the supposed witch found not
guilty, but her false accuser, one
John Hathaway, was condemned tn
a year's imprisonment and to stand
in the pillory three times. Yet,
horrible to relate, a woman named
Hicks and her daughter, a child of
nine, were hanged together at
Huntingdon on July 28, 1716, for
raising a storm of wind in league
with the devil.
h.'Ie last judicial sentence for
witchcraft in England was in 173G,
one Jane Wenham being actually
found guilty, according to the in-
dictment, of "conversing familiar-
ly with the devil in the form of a
cat." The judge, however, procured
a reprieve for poor old Jane, and
she was ultimately released, to end
her days in peace.
Last, the witchcraft act was ro-
pealed for the United Kingdom in
the same year. It wa.< quite time.
for only nine years earlier, in 1727.
a woman was brought before Cap-
tain David Ross, deputy sheriff of
Suitherlanl. charged with "causing
her daughter to be shod by the dev-
il," and so making her lame both in
IlandV andl feet. The fact having

Ponoinet in ome of his comedies
represents a young mnir s enter-
ing a room where two fair damsels
are embroidering. One is working
a pi of dress ftrinmi&g, the other
a Marly flounce. The beau examines
the embroidery with the eye of a
connoisseur, point out here and
there the pecally good touches and
is too polite to notice any defects.
He takes little gold tube out of
the pocket of his richly decorated
waistcoat and selects a dainty gold
needle. He goes to the frame at
which Cidalise is working and fin-
ishes the flower which she had be-
gun. From her he moves to the
sofa and, seizing one end of the
flounce, assists Ismene, to whom he
ays special attention, to complete
er task.
At this time it was the custom of
the ladies invariably to carry their
workbags with them to the evening
receptions, in which they had not
only their embroidery materials, but
the last novel, the popular songs,
their patch boxes and rouge pots.
Gentlemen also carried deftly em-
broidered little bags into company,
which held "a whole arsenal of cut-
lery and fancy articles, such as
boxes of different shapes filled with
lozenges, bonbons, snuff and scent."
At another period the fashion of
the day was to cut out drawing
from books and pamphlets and to
paste them on screens. lamp shades,
boxes and vases. The skill in this
was to so arrange the drawings or
parts of different drawings as to
produce a curious or amusing ef-
fect. Then there came a season
when all the ranie was for charades
and riddled, which gave a peculiarly
good opportunity to exercise tlhe
light and rapid wit so conspicuous
in the French. Every evening the
drawing rooms were converted into
impromptu charades. Some lafly
would surest a word or phrase. and
forthwith it would be converted into
the subhiet of a sprightly little play.
Many of the word games now cur-
rent with :-i in America had their
noriin in the necessity the French
alone were mtier in the last cen-
tury to divert themselves. In some
of the salons the fashion of keep-
ing a (dilly chronicle of news. which
was too often a mere chronicle of
candeal, was adopted. rme. Dou-
blet de Persan issued bulletins
which she called "nouvelles a In
main." In her apartments two reg-
isters were kept. one of the authen-
tic news receivel here and there by
her guests, the other of floating ru-
mors and on dits, and from these
the budget of her chronicle was
made up and circulated throughout

When the stomach can't do It,

The proper way to do Is to eat

lNothing else can do this. When
the stomach is weak it needs help;
you must help it by giving It rest,
and Kodol will do that.

The surface of the earth can be
compared to the top of a barrel of
asphalt, hard and rigid through and
through, seamed and cracked on the
surface by the elements. For ten
miles in a straight line below the
surface the earth is probably dry
and hard, of a rock substance. The
pressure of this substance upon the
heated center of the earth keeps it
from getting hotter than it is, just
as you can keep water from boiling
by an appropriately sufficient pres-
sure. The fact that there is steam
in volcanic eruptions is the leakage
of the interior pressure of heat in
the earth. The character of matter
in the center of the earth or its im-
mediate environment must be some-
thing like pumice stone-spongy,
porous, light-because when the
earth's interior matter is melted in
the high temperatures that are
there it dissolves, and there is con-
siderable water in it that escapes
through volcanic craters in steam.

Minnesota Professor Claims to Utilize
Sawdust Also.
A chemical discovery which is ex-
pected to make wood pulp and paper
products many times more plentiful
and much cheaper than they are at
present was recently announced at the
State university In Minneapolis, Minn.
The discoverer is Dr. George B.
Frankfurter, dean of the College of
Chemistry, who has worked on the
process for more than twelve years.
The discovery makes possible the man-
ufacture of paper from fir trees, saw-
dust and waste timber.
The pulp for paper at present is
made only from spruce. The supply of
fir is 100 times greater than the supply
of spruce, and Dr. Fraukforter and
those associated with him say the new
pulp process will be more economical.
As proof of the value of his discov-
ery Dr. Frankforter shows a table re-
cording his experiment with one cord
of fir wood. The wood cost him $7.50.
and from It he obtained .wood pulp
worth $89. turpentine worth $41.00 and
byproducts of a lesser value. The
waste that is now burned or thrown
away. Dr. Frankforter says, can be
used as well as the fresh cut wood.

knew that it was "mderstood," md
evening after evening John talked
to Molly on the front porch, often
nmgering after the other Nelsons
had retired.
The surprise of the two was con-
sequently great when one evening a
shuffling step was heard in the hall,
and presently Mr. Nelson appeared
in slippers and dressing gown, can-
dle in hand. Quite evidently he
had gone to bed and then got up--
for some purpose.
"Why, father, what is the mat-
Molly's cheeks were burning, as
her father stood there hesitating
and eying John closely. John, lean-
ing against the doorpost, where he
had stood for the last fifteen min-
utes saying good night to. Molly,
felt decidedly uncomfortable under
Mr. Nelson's gaze.
In fact, it was embarrassing all
around. But John is a young man
who goes straight to the point.
"Is anything wrong, Mr. Nel-
son ?' he began. "Am I to infer
that you object to my- being here?"
"Well, no, not exactly, John."
Mr. Nelson coughed slightly, hesi-
tating. "It's only that mother and
I would like to get a little sleep."
"Father," cried Molly, quite in-
dignant, "we couldn't have been dis-
turbing any one! John has been
talking very low"-
"I don't doubt that, my dear.
Mr. Nelson was beginning to enjoy
the situation. "It's not that, nor
have I any objection to John's talk-
ing to pu. In fact, I haven't an
objection in the world to John nor
to his conduct, except"-
Mr. Nelson is open to suspicion of
having prolonged the matter unnec-
esarily at this point.
-"except in one thing. Mrs. Nel-
son and I do object seriously, my
dear John, to the habit you seem to
have formed this evening of leaning
against the bell push. Our bed-
room is next to the kitchen, and
this continuous bell ringing is mot
conducive to repose."

"It cannot be," sighed the maid.
"I respect you highly, Mr. Hunter,
but we are incompatible."
"Well, I suppose it cannot be
helped," the young man replied,
pocketing his chagrin and looking
about for his hat, "but it defeats all
my cherished hopes. I had planned
a house in which I fondly imagined
we might be happy. It was to have
had a pantry twice as large as the
ordinary size, with a roomy closet in
which to stow away the new cooking
utensils and things that a woman
naturally buys when a peddler
comes around."

usually of more importance to tiem

following unequivocal reply is the
kind that makes glad the hearts of
his justice loving constituents both
enfranchised and disfranchised.
"I am supporting and shall contin-
ue to support any legislation looking
to the curtailment or crippling of the
business of dealing in intoxicating
liquors. I am also supporting and
shall continue to support any legisla-
tion looking to the prohibition of the
shipment of liquors into prohibition
"I shall also oppose the importa-
tion of opium, except under the
strictest regulation. I have always
been opposed to the sale of cigarettes'
having introduced the bill which was
enacted into law by the Florida legis-
lature, prohibiting such sales."
Important Legislative Bills
Senator Dayton, of DadeCity, will
introduce a bill providing for the re-
districting of the eight judicial cir-
cuits of the state. In support of this
measure, Senator Dayton, who by
the way, is rapidly becoming one of
the most influential members of the
upper house, finds that the increase
of population makes a redistricting
absolutely necessary. The great vol-

"Don't you recognize me?" asked
the opportunity pleasantly.
"No, and I don't care to. You

the man as he limped away.

"Brown was knocked down and re-

An Ihntenpted wedding es.
While a wedding breakfast was in
progress in the village of Novery,
in Savoy, the floor gave way, and
the guests fell through into a cow
house below. The bride dropped on
the neck of a cow, which took fright
and dashed out into the field with
the bride clinging to its horns. The
bridegroom went off in pursuit and
found the bride hanging byher hair
from a branch beneath which the
cow had passed. She was rescued
in a badly bruised condition.

with him at the time there was talk
of an action against them and his
father for conspiracy. Our agency

He did not know I was a detective.

him a New York publication was
having the affair written up and il-
"I said I had seen the picture of
the fight which had been prepared
for it. He was pleased at the pub-
licity that the fight was to get, for
the story of the affair at the club
had been printed, and he wanted it
known that his son had avenged the
insult. I intimated that if he cared
to see it I thought I could get him
the picture that had been prepared
for publication. He was eager to
see it.
"I had a friend, a newspaper art-
ist, who made me a picture. He
made a faithful copy of the street
scene where the fight occurred, and
he made a fair likeness of the fig-
ures in it. The picture showed one
man stealing up behind another and
striking him from the rear. Behind
him were two other men, who were
supposed to have accompanied him
to see fair play. The father was
thought to have been in the neigh-
borhood, but as he wasn't seen he
was left off the picture. He exam-

St. Yves was a waiter in a Londod
restaurant a year ago without a dol-
lar. Falling a victim to the Marathon
fever, be took up running and quickly
demonstrated that he possessed ster-
ling qualities. Al Copland. Princeton's
athletic trainer, heard of St Yves a
few weeks ago and brought him to
the United States, but as nobody hau
seen him In action and as Copland pre-
pared him for the race In compare
tive secret at Princeton he did not re-
ceive serious consideration by the gin
eral sporting public in calculating thr
respective merits of the six starters.
In appearance St. Yves Is not a run-
ner. le is short in stature, built likt
a wrestler, with powerful legs. broad
shoulders, deep chest and
arms. His hair Is light, and his small
mustache does not hide an excellent
set of teeth.

Net Afraid of a Ghot.
In a village in England a man
went running into an inn at 9
o'clock at night and cried out that
there was a ghost in his back yard.
There were fourteen men in the
inn, and not one of them dared to
go home with the man and investi-
gate. There was a person who
dared, however, and that was the
landlord's daughter, a girl of four-
teen. Some of the men followed
her at a distance, and she went into
the yard and up to the ghost, flap-
ping its arms about, and discovered
a man's white shirt flapping on the
clothesline in a strong breeze.
That's about the way all ghosts turn

thiap have been placed under the
bed af the protests of the fam-
ily, if they are patiently moved
every Cleaning day and clung to
through a ovi, then their own-
ern hare the attic istinct to such an
extent that there is not the slight-
at hope of their ever being cured.
They will think from an attic point
of view for the rest of their lives,
and their family might as well be-
come reigned.
When people are willing to make
themselves disagreeale over a bit
of string and absolutely objectiona-
ble on the subject of stray pieces of
brown peper they should not be ac-
cused of having bad dispositions,
nor should thq be suspected of do-
ing it to annoy one. They are
merely suffering from the attic in-
stinct and cannot help themselves.
Their characters were formed and
have now hardened for a scheme of
life where certain things were al-
ways kept in the cellar, others in
the wood shed, others in the pantry
and the cupboard on the first floor,
still others in the closets on the
next floor, and everything and- any-
thing that overflowed from any of
these places was just taken up to
the attic. And now these poor dear
souls live with a cellar, three stories
and an attic still lodged in their
minds, and, though they will in
'time disappear, like all unnecessary
members-seventh toe, tails, an ap-
pendix-in the meantime they are
having trouble with them, they are
suffering and fighting for them, and
it takes a serious operation to re-
move so much as one scrap book if
the owner thinks he may like to
read it over in his old age.-Har-
per's Weekly.
Gtret Lightlng.
The streets of New York were
first lighted in 1697, the lighting
being done by a lantern suspended
from a pole stretched out from the
window of every seventh house.
The lighting of streets with gas
was first tried in 1816 in Baltimore.
At Philadelphia a theater was thus
lighted on Nov. 25, 1816, the first
place of amusement in America il-
uminated in that manner.
Gas was first used for lighting
houses in Boston in 1822. It had
been used thirty years before at
Cornwall. England.-Scran Book.

Five Years

of Heart Trouble Cured by
Dr. Mil' Heart Remedy
"Before I began taking Dr.
Miles' Heart Remedy I had been
suffering from heart trouble for
over five years. I had pains in
my left side, and under my
shoulder blade, could not sleep
on the left side, and was so short
of breath the least exertion

would bring on the most distress-
ing palpitation. I had scarcely
taken a half bottle of the Heart
Remedy before I could see a
marked change in my condition.
When I had taken six bottles I
was cured."
Northfie!d, Va.
If there is fluttering or palpi-
tation it is an indication of a
weakness of the nerves and mus-
cles of the heart. It is not neces-
sarily diseased-just weak from
over-work. The heart may be
weak just the same as the eyes,
stomach or other organs. You

Dar Sir:-Replying to your copmmni-
atm of the t in wh you ask if
the whole county can be made into a
special school district, I would say that
hi my opnon, iteannot. Theeonstitu-
ton:-Art. 12, See. 10 authorizes the
Ilature to provide orthedivision of
athe t into convaeniet school dis-
trict the laying ofaspecial school tax,
etc. This sems to exdude the caseof the
ntire county being erected into school
I understand that the school board
has under onsiderstkm the indebted-
ness eased by the failure of the state
to 'make goad' on account of the re-
emt supreme court decision. I would
u.tfest, that instead of creat spe-
iaehol dstr to rae funds, that
appeal levy be made to pa oustatnd-
AetsoflMT. Tms would have to be
ar ian coJunction with the county
mns, as there is no doubt that
the school warrants en-ctitute "county
idebtednes." I donot advise this as
a precedent, but because I understand
that the present indebtedam is not due
to extra aance or lack of foresight on
the part of the school-board.
Yours truly,
Gao. M. ROBsINS.
The matter was thoroughly dis-
cused and the board decidedto adopt
the suggestion of the opinion.
A communication from Prof. E. E.
Macey was read and laid over for fu-
ture action.
'Gators Catch His Hogs
B. L Griffin, of Enterprise, Fla.,
a correspondent of the Times-Union
"In your issue of March 30 I read
Mr. A. V. Hiscock's letter about the
dangerous alligator. Yes, he is dan-
gerous and he gave three statements
where it is known facts that they
have caught two boys and one girl.
I can add two more cases of singular
occurrence to three Mr. Hiscock has
given. I know where they have
caught men. If you do not think so
try one of the brutes when he is hun-
"They are one of the worst brutes
to catch hogs in the world. In one
summer they caught five sows for
me. One of the sows had seven little
pigs and one had nine, and all of them
starved to death. I can give a true
statement that they catch as many as
fifteen to twenty head of hogs for
me every year, to say nothing of my
neighbors' hogs. They also catch
cows as well as hos., and no matter
