An inspection of the tales for
Florida in the bulletin soon to be

of $1,275,000 in 1890. This was
reduced to $1,193,000 in 1901; in

been received for 1900, 1901 and

floating debt fluctuated from $4,000
in 1903 to $18,00 in 1912.
In the case of funds and invest investments,

a general increase during the period.
The securities increased from $1, $1,-062,000

1912. The cash, though changing

The sinking fund assets decreased
from $243,000 in 1S90 to $160,000
in 1901, disappearing altogether in
1903; hence the debt less sinking
fund assets was the same as the
total debt from 1903 to 19-12.
The decrease in the debt and the
increase in population during the 30 30-year
year 30-year period brought about a marked
decrease in the per capita debt.
In 1880 the total debt of Florida
at the close of the fiscal year, Dec.
31, was $1,323,000; in 1890 it was
$1,375,000; in 1903, $605,000; an!
in 1912 it amounted to $619,000.
The population of the state increas increased

In 18S0 the per capita debt wa3
$4.36; ten years later it. amounted
to S2.SS; in 1900 it was $1.95; and
in 1912 it had decreased to .$0.77.
In contrast with the state of Flori Florida,
da, Florida, we find that taking the entire
debt (less sinking fund asset) for
the 4S states, the average per capi capita,
ta, capita, according to the latest report, is
$3.52, or nearly five times as great
as the per capita debt of Florida. In
ratio of decrease the per capita debt
of Florida fell from $4.36 in 1SS0
to $0.77 in 1912, whereas the per

states is considered, fell onjy from
$5.48 to $3.52.
At the present time -wrrtl.S per

United States will be found in the
state of Florida, and 0.2 per cent, of
the total debt (less the sinking fund
assets) is attributed to that state.

years before our civil war seceded

question of national rights which
much resembled the Southern doc

first against the Austrians, they were
conquered when Russia flung her
sword into the scale.

treated with extreme rigor. All their
leaders who were not able to escape
were executed or imprisoned for long
terms. Kossuth, their leader, found
refuge in the United States. Another

of becoming an American citizen

Authorities agree that the remote
ancestor of Easter was a ceremony of
pagan worship. Distant as are the
origins of the old religious forms and
intertwined as are the threads, con connecting

not now easy to disentangle them, so
that it may be said that Easter ob observances
servances observances among the people include
remnants of the ancient worship of
the sun, the moon and fire and water.
The keynote of the festival has been
from the very beginning resurrection,
the re-awakening of the vernal world.
The name is that of a goddess of
spring, and certain of the emblems
have had a. co-relation that is remark remarkable,
able, remarkable, and through thirty centuries
they have come down to us together,
preserving the early significance of
resurrection, although the faith that
originated the ideas had ages ago
been forgotten. The idea of Easter
sprang truly from a tomb; that tomb
was, however, the tomb of winter.
The strong angel that rolled away the
stone from the door of the sepulcher
was the April sun.
Although. Lent has the claim of
Christian origin, there are antiquar antiquarians
ians antiquarians who assert that it is of far more
Ancient origin. It arose, as nearly as
has yet been determined, in the fast fasting
ing fasting that was customary among the
Babylonians, whose worship formed
the starting point of Easter. The fast
was one of sympathy with the goddess
of reproduction, who mourned her con consort,
sort, consort, and the period was marked by
fasting and an abstinence from mirth
and social festivals. Fasting has been
a widespread custom, Humboldt not noting

enough, the invading Spaniards found
the natives practicing baptism, with

Easter was at first a continuation
of the Jewish Passover and came on
the fourteenth of the month Nisan.
When the revulsion of feeling In the
church against the Jews occurred it
was changed and deliberately fixed
so that it could by nr possibility fall
on the same day as the Passover.
This matter wqs settled i A. D. 325.
Easter was set for the first Sunday
following the full moon that comes
after March 21. This relation to the
vernal equinox brought it to the time
of the pagan festival of the goddess
of spring, dating back to the Astarte
worship of Babylonia. The name,
Easter, is comparatively modern, but
the principle of the story and the
emblems 'and observances are of this
"Easter fires continue even now in
northern Europe," wrote Grimm a
generation ago. On the Weser a tar
barrel was tied to a fire tree and
lighted in the evening and the men
and the maidens sang and danced
about it. There was a fire on every
hilltop. There were processions to
these fires and hymn singing and the
bearing of white rods were features.
The people liked to carry the fire
home with them; it was a sacred fire
and embodied elements of the old
fire worship. It was produced by
friction, a natural method, and to kin kindle
dle kindle it two boys were selected who
knew nothing of the vanities 'of the
world. Within a quarter of a century
in Hildesheim the Easter fire has
been struck with the steel. Here the
people take the fire home to rekindle
their extinguished hearths. The old
sacred fires were lighted by natural
means, some of them by concentration concentration-of

to stare up at me as if half doubting

of his silence. "You have my story

but you furnish a clue; perhaps if we
put the ends together we may make
a tale. A French negro, hey! 'T would

treacherous whiskered dog. But how
ever did he come to be here? Ay! I
have it! The fellow must have trailed
me from the council at Sandusky, sus suspecting

hate between them."
"Then 't is likely he killed the man."
"Xo doubt of it, if he really be
killed. Listen to what I know; in
truth it is not much other than rumor;
D'Auvray had the fellow lashed by
Wyandot squaws for some dirty trick,
and Picaud that's his name swore
vengeance. Saint Denis! That was a
year ago, and Picaud has ever since
been in his own country. 'T was the
coming of war that brought him back.
I thought I saw him at Sandusky as
we held council there, but his presence
wa3 nothing to me."
"He had no quarrel with you, then?"
"No; I saw him whipped; he was
like a snarling cur. Listen, and I'll
tell all I know. I am not proud of my
job, understand, but out here in the
wilderness, we work under a double
set of orders one open and above

"And it was easily enough carried

"To win her, ycu mean?"
"No, no! There was but one way of
doing that, and it chances I possess a

Wyandots to our scheme. T was Ham Hamilton's
ilton's Hamilton's plan; that I suggest to her a
visit to the Wabash tribes, for she was
ready for any sacrifice to spread her
faith among the red-skine. Ay! and by
good luck the scheme worked."
"That then was what took her
south?" I asked, deeply interested.
"Yes; I fixed up a fine story, and the
priest gave her his blessing. Oh, it
was safe enough; no Indian would dare
lay hand on her in evil. Where did
you meet the girl?"
"What!" in surprise. "She got eo
far? She ventured there? What was

"Of that I know nothing, jet it was
there we met first, and she mistook me
for you. Go on; I would hear the rest
of your tale; It is growing dark."
"The rest is short enough, but the
girl's actions puzzle me. Once we
were rid of her, the father had to be
attended to. T was no easy task, for
D'Auvray was a chief, and quick to
quarrel. 'T is small odds now how
the trick was played, but I knew of
this cabin, and once here I held him
prisoner, while Hamilton used his
disappearance as a whip to drive
the Wyandots to war."
