ed. colored. The federal government does not
permit the coloring of oranges unless
they meet the test of eight to one.
Marion county Parson Browns meet
the requirements early and with the
new process of coloring will be able
to take full advantage of the early
market, with a much more attractive
appearing fruit than has up to this
time been possible. i
A most valuable feature of the new
coloring process is its small cost. The
process will add very little to the cost
of packing a box of oranges.
In view of the hundreds of thou

Unless it could fill a sidetrack with

THE FACE ON THE
BAR ROOM' FLOOR
i (From the Amaroc)
Twas a happy summer's evening:
And a goodly crowd was there
That well nigh filled Joe's barroom
On the corner of this square.
As songs and witty stories
Came through the door
A vagabond crept slowly in
And posed upon the floor.
"Where did it come from,' some one
cried. .. :
(The wind has blown it in)
"What does it want?" another said
"Some whisky, beer" or gin?"
''Here, Toby seek it ;
If your stomach's equal to the work
I wouldn't touch.it with a fork.
It's as filthy as a Turk."
This badinage the stranger took
xWith good and stoical grace.
In fact, he smiled as tho he thought
He'd struck the proper place.
'Come, boys, I know there's ;
Kindly hearts among so good a
crowd, I J
To be in such good company
Would "make a deacon proud.
"Gimme a drink! That's what I want,
I'm out of funds, you know;
When I had cash to treat the gang
This hand was never slow.
"What! You laugh as. tho you thought
This pocket never held a sou.
I was once fixed as well, my boys,
' As any one of you.
"Fill 'er up, Joe,
I want some life hi this old frame.
Such little drinks to a bum like me
Are miserly and vary tame.
"Five fingers, that's the scheme,
And corking whisky, too.
Here's luck to 'you boys, and landlord
My best regards to you.
"Now, you've treated me pretty kindly
And I want to tell you howt
I came to be the dirty sot
You see before you now.
"As I said once before,
I was a man of muscular frame and
health : j;. -:
And but for a woman
Would have made considerable
wealth. - ;
I was a painter, not the
Kind that dabs on bricks and wood,
But an artist, and in my time
Was rated 'pretty rood.'
"I worked hard at my canvass
And was bidding fa;r to rise,
I could see the star of fame
Shining before my eyes.
f'I made a portrait perhaps you've
'; seen, 1 .v ' ' ;
Twas called the Chase of Fame,
It brought me fifteen hundred pounds
And added to my name.
"And then I met a woman,
(Now comes the funny part)
With eyes that petrified my brain
And sunk into ray heart.
"Say, boys, did you ever see a woman
For whom your soul you'd give
With a form like the Milo Venus,
Too beautiful to live?
"With eyes that would beat a Corona
And a wealth of chestnut hair.
If so, twas she for there never was
Another half so fair. r :
"I was working on a portait v
One afternoon in May
Of a fair haired boy a friend of mine
Who lived across the way.
"And Madeline admired it
J. A 1 A -.
Ana inucn to my surprise,
b&ia she d lip to meet tne man
That had those dreamy eyes.
"It didn't take her long to know him
And before the month had flown
My friend had stolen my darling
And I was left alone.
"And ere a year of misery
Had passed over my head,
The jewel T had treasured so
Was tarnished and was dead.
"That why I took to drink, boys,
.Why I never saw the smile.
I thought you'd be amused
And laughing all the while.
"What's the matter, friend,
There's a tear drop in your 70?
Come! Laugh like me; tis only
Babies and women that should cry.
"Another drink, boys
And I'll be glad
And you can see the face right here
That drove me mad.
"Give me that pieec of chalk
With which you mark the baseball
. score :
And you will see my lovely Madeline
Upon the,barroom floor."
i ? V
Another drink and chalk in hand
And the vagabond began to sketch
A face that well might buy.
The heart of any man.
And as he placed another lock
Upon (the shapely head
With a fearful sshriek he leaped and
Fell across the picture dead.

"Joyce, said a man's kind voice
close beside him. He recognized the
voice rather than the distressed .face
of an old friend and neighbor! "Joyce,
my dear fellow, he urged affectionate affectionately,
ly, affectionately, "tell us what we may do and well

you everything else.
'Thank you, Fred, Peter answered
after a moment. Thank you. Will
you help me take my wife home?"
"You wish it .that way? the other
man said anxiously.
"Please," Peter answered simply.
And Instantly there was moving and
clearing in the crowd, a murmuring
of whispered directions.
After a while they were at the moun mountain
tain mountain cabin, and Kow, with tears run running
ning running down his yellow face, was helping
them. Then they went Into the old liv living
ing living room, and Alii was lying there,
splendid, sweet, untouched, with her
brave, brown forehead shadowed soft softly
ly softly by her brown hair, and her lashes
resting upon her cheeks, and her fin fingers
gers fingers clasped about the stems of three
great, creamy roses.
There were other flowers all about,
and there were women in the room.
White draperies fell with sweeping
lines from the merciful veiling of the
crushed figure, and Alix might have
been only asleep, and dreaming some
heroic dream that lent that secret
pride and joy to her mouth and .filled
those closed eyes with a triumph they
had never known In life. 4
Peter stood and looked down at her,
and the men andwomen drew back.
But although the muscles of his mouth
twitched, he did not weep. He looked
long at her, while an utter silence
filled the room and while twilight
deepened into dark over the cabin and
over the mountain above It.
"So that was your way out, Alix?"
Peter said In the depth of his soul.
"That was your solution for us all?
You would go out of life, away from
the Sunshine and the trees and the
hills that .you loved, so that Cherry
and I should be saved? I was blind
not to see it. I have been blind from
the very beginning."
Silence. The room was filling with
shadows. Onthe mantel wa a deep
bowl of roses that he remembered
