ship steamship service between New York and

Panama canal, has begun, and two
steamers have already passed through
the canal with cargoes of general
manufactured goods and merchandise.
The new line is 10,100 miles long but
it is 3000 miles shorter than the route
from New York to Vladivostok by
way of the Suez canal. Consequently
a ten-knot vessel saves twelve and
one-half days at sea.

Mr. Hyne regarded Caleb narrowly,

"F'r pity sake, Caleb," he remarked,
petulantly, "if you've got anything to

"Trouble is with you, Hyne', you

him. You know that clerk the new

Mr. Hyne nodded his head assent assent-Ingly.

about as much chance in. a fuss with
Galfup as a sneeze in a gale of wind!"
Mr. Peaslee smiled, but offered no
remark. "That's the fellow," he
agreed. "I thought you'd seen him.

looked at the clerk as If he'd reduced

My auto, 'tis of thee--
Short cut to poverty
Of thee I chant.
I blew a pile of dough -For
thee two years ago
And now you quite refuse to go,
- Or won't, or can't. J
Through town and countryside
You were my joy and pride-
.Ah, happy day. -'
I loved thy gaudy hue,.
Thy nice white tires so new;
Now you down and out for true ;
In every way.
Came many bumps and knocks
For thee1 1 grieve,
Frayed are thy seats and worn,
Badly thy top is torn,
Whooping cough affects thy horn,
I do believe.
Thy perfume swells the breeze,
While good folks choke and wheeze
As we pass by.
I paid for thee a price
Twould buy a mansion twice .
.Now everybody's yelling, "Ice!"
I wonder why.
The motor has : the grippe,
The sparkplug has the pip,
And woe is mine;
Gone is my bank roll now, j
No more 'twould choke the cow,.
As once before. '.
Yet, if I had the yen,
So help me John amen,
I'd buy myself a car, agdin
And spend some more.

A man possessed of a very charm charming
ing charming wife recently moved into a bouse
near the outskirts of the city. The
coupLe were very much pleased with
the neighborhood and were soon on
intimate terms with most of their
neighbors. The only drawback was
that before they had lived there very
long the husband saw that the lord
of the next door house was showing
marked symptoms of being infatuated
with the new arrival's wife. His at attentions
tentions attentions were as odious to the wife
as they were to the husband, but
neither desired to create a disturb disturbance
ance disturbance and nothing was Bald. Even the
wife of the second husband was aware
of the desire of her lesser half to be
near his neighbor's wife as much as
.possible, but she, thinking that the
others had not noticed it, kept quiet.
Things ran along smoothly on the sur surface,
face, surface, but there was an undercurrent,
which boded no good for any one
caught there, until the Fourth of July.
Then the first husband put into ac
tion a plan he had evolved. He in invited
vited invited his next-door neighbors to pic picnic
nic picnic with him and his wife; and they
accepted. After the dinner the first
husband made the casual remark that
he had not had a chance to practice
pistol shooting since he had moved
to the city, and proposed a little
shooting match. When he drew ms
gun the second husband began to be
afraid that he had suspected some something,
thing, something, but the first husband merely
adjusted a target and sent five shots
within an Inch of the bull s eye. Tnen
he passed the gun to his wife and she
almost duplicated the performance.
Neither of their neighbors were awe
to hit the target. The first husband
calmly proceeded to toss up some
wooden plates and broke four out of
five. His wife was not so sure ana
broke only three out of the five, and
each apologized for the other not oo oo-ing
ing oo-ing any better by stating that they
were badly out of practice.
'Where did you learn to do all oi
that shooting?" the neighbor asked.'
O, we just practiced when we uvea
in the country," the husband or tne
attractive wife replied. "You see, my
wife had to be prepared to guard
herself against tramps and other un undesirables
desirables undesirables who might bother her
when I was away. She got so in the
habit cf having, her revolver nearher
that she still keens it around since
she has moved to town. We really j
should have done better, and could
with a little more practice."

Marie Legoff, then fourteen years
old, was the housekeeper of her fa father,

the,, turbulent waves of the British

found the wreckage on the sands went
to Marie Legoff and told her about hit
"Poor girl," he concluded, "what are
you going to do now?" Then with
Briton brusqueness, "You'd better go
to an orphan asylum. Do you want me
to do anything about it?"

That time had come with her mar marriage.
riage. marriage. Husband and wife having some
money, put it together to buy 'a sloop
of about fifty tons burden, and they
went to sea, doing a coasting trade.
If the husband had he brevet, the
wife was the acting captain, and no
one on board would have chanced to
say a word about it. People" from dif different
ferent different ports of the coast have still
that vision of a sloop coming into
port crowded with sails, speeding in
solently amidst, an anchorage full of
moored ships, and steered by a tall,
straight, energetic woman, a veritable
picture of determination and daring.
At the very moment when onlook onlookers,
ers, onlookers, breathless; anticipated a crash
against pier or wharf, Marie Logoff
uttered a sharp order, staysails and
anchor dropped at the same time, and
the ship, veering sharply, came quick quickly
ly quickly stern to windward and rocked her herself
self herself on her cable. '
After years of high-spirited life, the
end came. One day as the sloop, purr
sued by a maddened sea, was feeling
her way through a snowstorm and
trying to enter, the river of Morlaix,
the boom broke, the spanking power
of the fore and aft mainsail slackened,
and she was driven helplessly. against
Between the ship and the shore was
a rocky reef, a veritable wall, over
which" the sea broke, raging furiously.
Only one thing could save the crew
from certain death, and it had to bo
done quickly. It was to swim ashore
with a line.
Who would dare to attempt the
perilous undertaking? The sailors
shook their heads and, muttered:
"That is a sure death."
Without a word Marie Legoff seized
the end of a rope and-began to fasten
it about her waist, when her husband
sprang to her and shouted:
"What are you doing, Marie ? There
Is just a blanket of foam on the rocks;
you can't get across."
But the acting captain had not yet
him with her Intrepid lock and said:
"Who told you that there was no
more than a blanket of foam on the
rocks? Not I! I only say that I will
carry the rope!"
Without listening to further pro-
I testation, she sprang overboard and
dived Into the raging waters. After
an age she gained the surface. Si Silence
lence Silence prevailed on board. Straining
eyes watched her. She was dashed
forward by a violent surge drawn
back and buffeted by another, but still
swimming anti struggling she made
her way, dragging with her the rope.
Suddenly a huge wave hurled her on
the top of the reef, another one tossed
her to the other side, toward the shore.
She seemed then but a floating thing
with her clothes bagged by the wind.v
Finally she stranded, still clasping
the rope of salvation. She was seized
by the fisher folk who had gathered
and watched her audacious act, but
she was lifeless, crushed and toro by
the sharp teeth of the reef. '.

IN THE CIRCUIT COURT
Evidence in Defense in the Hough
Case is All In
' Circuit court held a session last
night, and the testimony of' Dr. Dame
of Inverness in the Hough case was
taken. About two hours was consum
ed with his testimony after which
court adjourned until this morning at j
During the forenoon today Dr. John
Reeves and George M. Davis of De De-Land
Land De-Land were on the witness stand as de defendant's
fendant's defendant's witnesses. Their testimony
was on a line with that which has
been heard for the past few days, all
going toward proving the insanity of
Hough at the time he killed his wife
in 1912. :
When court reconvened after din dinner
ner dinner the defense ; announced that their
evidence was all in. The first state
witness, Deputy Sabotti, of St. Johns
county, was then called to the stand
and was still there at 2:30.
Assistant State Attorney Davis
thinks that the Hough case will prob probably
ably probably go to the jury late Thursday aft afternoon,
ernoon, afternoon, as he believes that the state
can get in all its rebuttal testimony
by noon on that day. Judge Bullock,
when asked whether the court would
adjourn for Christmas day, said that
if the present case was disposed of by
that time it would, otherwise he saw
no reason for temporary adjournment,
as the witnesses in the case who live
at a distance would be unable to
spend the day at home with their
families, and the jury would, neces necessarily
sarily necessarily haye to remain together also.
So, he said taking everything intq
consideration he could not see hlat
taking a recess would enable anyone
except the immediate court attend attendants
ants attendants to enjoy much of a holiday.
Night sessions will likely be called
for tonight and tomorrow night in
