Miss Marion Russell, of Jackson-
ville, Miss Ella Fromme and Mr.
Hans Mutzeibecker, of Hamburg,
Germany, and Mrs. C. S. Uowen, of
Crescent City, were a pleasant party
making us a visit Tuesday. The
party had been Mrs. Gowen's guests
at Crescent City and paid us a little
visit en route to Jacksouville.


We had the pleasure of a call re-
cently from Mr. Fred. N. Dickey,
representing Geo. B. Long & Co., of
Buffalo, N. Y.. whose ad. appears on
page 4. Messrs. Long & Co., have
both as to capital and credit, a fine
rating, and they claim, with their
branches and main offloe, they can
handle all elases or sises of oranges
to good advantage to the shipper.
Their Pennsylvania branch takes
$be smaller *sies nicely, and the
fancy fruit is wanted for the Buffalo
house. Write the house for stenoll
and rates on through oar shipments. i


hMesrs. A. W. Davison, M. E. Lit-
tie, H. Morris and L. 8. Ford, from
Hardwick, Vt., arrived at the Byr.
lyn Tuesday afternoon. Messrs.
Davison and Morris left-Wednesday
afternoon for Florahome and will
spend some time with relatives
there. They expect to return to
San Mateo later.

Oranges and grapefruit are cer-
tainly moving from the Cresceint
City section. The boats average
about 2,000 boxes per day, and nearly
the same quantity is goinf out by
the A. C. L. Ry. Christmas will see-
the crops nearly cleaned up at Cres-
cent City unless the market bustA
and the packers iet up.

The K. of P. Home Minstrel at Pa-
latka last Tuesday night was a won-
derful success. This is a yearly oc-
currence and gets better every time.
The boys played to a house so filled
that standing room only could be
had. Every reserved seat in the
house was hold. The receipts were
$315.00.


F. M. Leonard & Co., of BOSTON.
have an ad. on page 4 this week.
Messrs. Leonard & Co., need no in-
troduction to shippers in this section
of Florida. They are located in the
heart of the fruit district, opposite
old Fanueil Hall Market, at 52 Clin-
ton St., and should be able to get top
prices. When you have anything
going to Boston give F. M. Leonard
& Co. a trial. Send for a stencil if
you haven't one.

greatest distribution and ooti g
centre Is Conestantisople. A Vienna
'syndicate controls the output d#4
prices. The average retail price of
a fez Is 50 cents.
In order to estimate the total fes
trade In Turkey one may reckon
about one and' a half every year to
every male Ottoman subject It is
true that in the towns most of the
men belonging to the better classes
buy as many 99 three or four ttes
each year, but this Is offset, on the
other hand, by many in the country
districts who do not tuy more than
this number during a whole lifetime.
Ninety per cent of the total fezes
worn in Smyrna are manufactured In
Vienna and imported from that city.
1 no remaining 10 per cent Is import-
ed from other towns in Austria and
from Germany, the latter country scp-
plying, as I have been Informed, a
rather cheap quality.
There 's a movement now on toot
to establish tez factories in Turkey,
In order to render the trade less de-
,pendent upcn Austria. Several fac-
tories have already been established.
and from all reports are doing well.
The fezes placed on the market by
these home factories are of an in-
ferior quality to the Austrian make,
but they are cheaper and also avoid
the necessity of paying an entrance
duty of 11 per cent. The moulds for
pressing fezes into shape are import-
ed from Germany.
In the large sea coast towns of the
Turkish Empire all foreigners, and
even many Ottoman subjects of non-
Moslem religion, do not wear fezes,
but in the interior of Asia Minor
nearly everybody, without distinction
of nationality, wears them.-Consu-
lar Report.


HIRED HEADGEAR FOR
DINGS.


WED-


In a little shop near Clement's Inn
there lives a veteran hat maker of
82 summers who hopes that the day
of the top hat will come .again this
year.
Piled against the panes of the win-
dow fronting Houghton street are
rows of silk hats of varying shapes
end degrees of glossiness. In front
two handbills, bearing the imprint
of an old time printer of Bouverie
street, announce that Christopher
Clarke has for sale a variety of silk
bats, ranging in price from 4s. Gd
to 10s. 6d. each. On a circular board
hung over the door it Is stated that
silk hats may be "hired for wed-
dings and funerals."
"Trade is nothing like what It was,"
he confided- recently to a member of
our staff, "and orders for silk hats
are not nearly so plentiful as they
were when I started in the business
In 1834. A good hat doesn't wear out
every day, and it can be remade
quite equal to new."
The lending of hats. he added, is
not a very Important or lucrative
branch of the business, and it was
only adopted three or four years ago
to assist in retaining some of the
trade that was slipping away. On?
shilling per day is charged for the
loan of a smart, up to date hat for
use at a wedding or other social
function.-Londoit Dally News.
A Reasonable Objection.
A Philadelphia lad, who had been
reading a book of his father's on as.
tronomy, wished to Inspire his sis-
tar, aged five, with a due respect
for his recently acquired knowledge,
and so, pointing to a star, said:
"Bee that star, AdaT That's blager
than our whole world!"
"No, it isn'tV" emphatically denied
Jhe *ister.
"Ye", It Is, Ada," rejoined the
brother. "I've read about it.&

Mals Sophia Kittlesen, Evanston, Ill.,
*rites:
"I have been troubled with catarrh
for nearly twenty-five years and have
tried many cures for it, but obtained
very little help.
"Then my brother advised me to try
"Pcruna, and I did.
"My health was very poor at the time
I began taking Peruna. My throat was
very sore and I had a bad cough.
,Peruna has cured me. The chronic
caterrh Is gonc and my health Is very
much Improved.
"I recommend Peruna to all my
friends who are troubled as I was."

for the Visitor or Henm


seeker.
Location.
Baa Mateo, Putnam County, la sit-
mated on the cast bank of the St.
Johns River, and 90 fogt above it.
The highest point in Florida, east of
the St. Johns river, which is one-half
-mile wide at this point.
Five miles from Palatka, our county
Jest, (city of 4,000), 28 miles from
SL Augustine and about 76 miles
from Jacksonville.
The terminus of a branch of thu
Florida Cast Coast Railway. The de-
pot being three-quarters of a nu:e
from the river wharf.
Advantages and Attractions.
Ban Mateo has good sh#'led roads
and miles of hard sidewalks. Beauti-
ful wateroaks line both sides of
streets, and meet overhead in many

The place Is incorporated, but no
town taxes have been collected for
over ten years; the many public im-
provements are made by the push and
generowity of the citizens and pulling
together. The state and county taxes
are about 2,) mills on about onw,-third
valuation.


Good hunting and fishing, deer, tur-
key, ducks and quail, black bass and
other Florida fresh water fish.
Good boarding house, Byrlyn Place,
open winters; rates eight to ten dol-
lars per week; $2.00 day.
Six thousand people went through
the San Mateo Fruit Company's grove
here last season.
One of the best advantages Baa
Mateo enjoys is transportation; being
on both river and rail is an advantage
that few Florida points enjoy. The
past season, for InFtance, railroads
and terminals at Jacksonville were
more than congested and fruit ship-
ped from points down the central
part of the state was, In some cases,
three weeks getting to Jack.;onville,
en route to northern markets, and
did not bring enough to pay freight,
while San Mateo shippers, at same
time. would ship from here one day
and have fruit go cut of Jacksonville
on the Clyde ship tho next. This lit-
tle mnattr this season alone was
worth thousands of dollars to the San
Mateo growers and the homeseeker
will do well to bear in mind trans-
*I portation and cheap rates that come
with competition, in selecting a Flor-
ida locatUon.
The population is about 850, who
oante mostly from the northern states.
As a class they are men of means,
progressive and sociable. Have a bet-
ter class of homes than can be found

CAMPHOR TREE PROVES.
To Be Cultivated Where Frosts Have
Ruined Orange industry.
Washington, D. C.-That the culti-
vation of the camphor tree Is being
seriously considered as a substitute
for orange cultivation In those sec-
tions of Florida where the frosts have
made the latter Industry an unprofita.
ble one. is one of the facts that have
been brought out in connection with
the hearings being held by the ways
and means committee of the house of
representatives preliminary to the In-
troduction of a new tariff bill at a
special session of congress next
March.
As a result of the hearings on the
schedule providing for chemicals, oils
and paints, an amendment In para-
graph twelve of the Dingley bill, cov-
oring refined camphor has been made.
The courts have held that synthetic
canmhor, a product. of synthetic chem-
istry made from oil of turpentine,
should be admitted free of duty as
crude camphor.
It is proposed to restrict the free
admission of camphor to the crude
natural article, as a result of experi-
ments conducted by the department
of agriculture with camphor growing
in Florida, the announcement by two
concerns of their intention of cultivat-
ing camphor to a considerable degree
that article may be taken off the free
list altogether within a few years.

"Gratitude for the wonderful effect of
Electric Bitters in a case of acute indi-

am fully convinced that for stomach

JD BMANCE SF POWER

By Gi Ther Elestoral Voteto the
Party Granting Greatest Benefits.
New York Now Pivotal State.


Pensacola, Fla. Hon. John S.
Board. at present state senator from
this district, and recently a candidate
for the United States senate, and one
of the Inost prominent politicians In
this section of the state, created much
discussion In an interview, when he
advocated the south leaving all par-
ties and standing solidly together with
Its electoral vote pledging Itself to
no party, but going uninstructed and
casting its vote to the party guaran-
teeing the greatest benefits to the
south. He urged that the south should
attend no more conventions, be bound
by no ties but elect their electors and
hold them as a balance of power to
determine the election of candidates
of that party which will accord the
south its entire measure of constitu-
tional rights. In his interview he
says:
"What is the solid south and what
will remain the solid south, eleven
states, have 120 electoral votes. New
York, with thirty-nine votes, is pivotal
In nearly every election. The south,
with nearly four times as many, can
be the deciding factor in every elec-
tion.
"While the southern states believe
In the eternal, Indestructible princi-
ples of democracy, they should recog-
nize the fact that a political party is
not an end, but only a means to nn
end. The south can enforce those
means of democracy, which had their
birth in the constitution by holding
the balance of power. She can hold
the balance of power in this way, and
only in the way indicated. The east
and west, with such diverse and con-
flicting Interests, will soon be at each
other's throats If they have not the
south as a common target. They would'
be pretty nearly equal in strength.
"The south, holding the balance of
power, can decide elections in favor
of the party or section which hews

the circuelation of the slertf WStm
"showing bow poison and diea0e
germs are transmitted from one gland
to another" adorns the front page of
the International Tuberculosis Bule-
tin by Dr. M. Souville of Jacksonville,
formerly of the Paris and London hos-
pitals and a member of the Interna-
tional Congress on Tuberculosis; Dr.
Georges Petit, general secretary of the
International Society of Tuberculosis
and senior physician of the anti-tu-
berculosis dispensary of Paris, and
others. This photograph brings out
clearly the larger blood vessels of the
entire chest. The same bulletin,
among other articles, describes Dr.
Souville's Invention for the preven-
tion of contagious and all germ dis-
eases. Dr. Souville was sent to the
recent meeting of the congress as a
delegate" by the Jacksonville board of
trade and was made a member of it
immediately upon his arrival, deliver-
ing an address at one of the sessions.
Tampa will have another state fair.
The dates set are February 3 to 27
inclusive, next year. The Florida
State Midwinter Fair Association, af-
ter mature consideration, have decid-
ed that the demands for another fair
are too urgent to .be resisted and that,
in fact. the prospects for success were
never brighter. Exhibits in every de-
partment promise to be larger than
ver before, the race meeting to be
one of the best ever conducted in the
state, more notable visitors in attend-
ance, more days on which special fea-

tures can be arranged. Governor Gil-
christ, as he will be then, will open
the fair and deliver a speech. W. J.
Bryan. late the democratic candidate
for president, has promised an ad-
dress for the second day, February
4. These two events, especially the
latter, ought to start off the fair with
the biggest crowd ever. Certificates
redeemable when the state makes that
long deferred payment of money ap-
propriated for the last previous fair
will be paid out for the overdue pre-
miums. It is a good thing for Florida
that this fair is to be held. The
very name, "Midwinter Fair," is an
advertisement of the state and the
tide of winter visitors is likely, from
all indications, to mount higher this
season than ever before.
One of the most wide-spread of Flor-
ida .building operations in the immedi-
ate future will doubtless be the erec-
tion of school buildings. From every
part of the state comes the report that
the children of school age have in-
creased so greatly in number recently
that the present school houses are not
adequate to receive them oil. Several
cities are preparing to build large
school houses, large enough not only
for present needs, but for those of
the Immediate future. The most no-
ticeable feature is that most of these
new houses are designed to be archi-
tectural ornaments to the respective
cities. There is a solid moral and in-
tellectual benefit to the youog in being
educated in a handsome building and
the city indulging in such luxury ex-
presses at once its wealth, its taste
and culture and its regard for the
value of education.
The Marion county fair will be held
December 16,l7 and 18. Marion ought
to be able to make a good display of
farm products, especially in live stock.
In no state that had representatives
at the recent convention of the Gulf
Coast Inland Waterways Association
are the benefits promised by the ob-
jects that association has in view
greater or the scope 6f country that
will gain by that promised Joining of
the Gulf and the Atlantic larger than
in Florida, and the interest felt is cor-
respondingly wide-spread. These facts
were recognized when, having changed
Its name to the Mississippi-Atlantic
Inland Waterways Association, it


chose United States Senator-elect
Duncan U. Fletcher for its president
and G. A. Waterman, secretary of the
Pensacola board of trade, as its treas-
urer. ,Both selections were Judicious,
each being particularly fitted for the
offce to which he was assigned and
both being warm advocates of the
general plan.

A serious condition seems to prevail
almost all over Florida. There are
very few towns or cities In the state
that do not complain that vacant
dwelling houses are very scarce in
that municipality. It would be a pa-
triotic as well as a profitable thing
for local capitalists to build more
houses for rent in most of Florida cit-
ies. All Immigrants can not be ex-
pected to buy farms and build.

There is more Catarrh in this sec-
tion of the country than all other
diseases put together, and until the
last few years was supposed to be in-
curable. For a great many years doc-
tors pronounced it a local disease and
prescribed local remedies, and by con.
stantly failing to cure with local treat-
ment, pronounced it incurable. Sci-
ence has proven catarrh to be a con-
stitutional disease and therefore re-
quires constitutional treatment. Hall's
Catarrh Cure, manufactured (by F. J.
Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the
only constitutional cure on the mar-
ket. It is taken internally in doses
from 10 drops to a teaspoonful. It
acts directly on the blood and mu-

offer one hundred dollars for any
case it fails to cure. Send for circu-

S.ffty to three hundred, acre, of "bottom" fl'ored preferably with
g good clean sand or broken rock or shell, yet frequently devoid at the start
of all kttural growth of the oysters.
On the natural beds the oysters spawn tremendously in the first warm
months of coming summer. The spawn attaches itself like millions of freckles
to anything affording a foothold-anything sharp, like broken shells, old bot-
ties, other oysters, and rocks. With incredible rapidity these freckles expand,
becoming "spats"-small finger-nail oysters, alr'aily houied In walls of lime.

with oyutermen proper, who go down to dredge out a three-year-old crop for

They are dredged from the beds just as rapidly as men and machines can

Bad Meals an? Divorces.
By Winifred Black.
VERY time I see a woman going home with a bag of baker's rolls,"
said a clever clergyman the other day to his congregation, "I
feel as if I had had.'At home' cards from the devil."
Poor man! I wonder if he has ever tried any of the home-
made bread that some of our aunts and cousins make right
now.
A woman who will buy baker's bread, when she knows how
to bake the real article at home, is a goose.
But, oh! You can eat crackers, or even Imported English biscuit, rather
than some of the bread I had to pretntd to (at at a nice, clean, orderly house
the other day.
I went to the house on business. The mistress of it was In the yard, with
her elbows on the back fence. It took me two hours and a quarter to get
her to tell me what she could just as well have tolt in ten minutes. She tried
hard enough, but she couldn't seem to fix hert inhid on any one subject.
Well amoag other diversions and interruptions, she insisted that I stay
to lunch-and I stayed.
The children came home from school and she gave them a banana and
a piece of soggy bread' and told th&'mi to run a!'oig.
They didn't run. Hlow could th-ey, with such a meal as that to give them
strength? And then we sua down aind had some fried meat and half-done
potatoes, and some soggy breal, and sol lme pie that was a crime against tho
Innocent.
'lMy husband would get a divorce from me If I bought baker's stuff," said
the mle.tress of the house. "lie gets awful mad whenever I try to do it.
My, but he Is cranky about things to eat!"
Cranky! I should think a: man who hadl to live, on su1c'h food as that poor
woman provided would go ravin;' crazy and be done \\ith it.
Now, that woman spends three-f(,ouths of her day in trivial gossipy Idle-
ness.
* Why on earth doesn't she put her mind to K and learn how to cook a
decent meal and serve it decently?
Whenever I read In the papers of w!'fe-beatings and wife-desertions I think
of that luncheon and wonder whether the me n in the published cases have
to eat that kind of stuff.
If they do, I don't blame them for the desertion. Do you?-New York

Is the only .iafr position when at.-
tempting to call a turkey, for the
background of tihe trees s(ems to
prevent the turkey from seeing the
hunter, anil often the bird will walk
up to within a few feet of the man
if the latter will only remain quiet.
My (o:n Ipan ion now began to call
again. and )(x)n, from several dlirec-
lions, he, secure an wearingg calls.
Then we he-ard the beating of mighty
wings as a distant turkey, presumably
(of great size, fluttered its ponderous
body from the limb where it had
roosted through the night to the snow-
coverel ground. It was a most ex-
(iting and neirve-rac(king sound, and-
it put us both upon the keen edge of
expectancy, for often a turkey will
fly straight from its roosting place
to the gunner with his wing-bone
ca(:ller.
Far through the woods I caught a
glimpse of the dark body of the tur-
key selling toward the ground and
my heart went up in my throat and
my pulso beat like a railroad engine
climbing a heavy grade. However,
the bird lit some two or throe hun.-
dred yards away In a clear space, and
I could seo it leisurely making its
way toward us, standing out bold and
prominent In the sea of whiteness.
*Slowly It approached, and. when Just
about 150 yards away, there came a
roar of wings, and, sailing out of a
cypress brake, a big turkey came
straight for my position, flying
through the trees with the speed of
a Moe horse. Without a turn or curve

Oathertng up tih dead bird, the two
of us made a rapid detour through
the woods In the attempt to head off
the other bird, aad, after mainas
some four hundred yards, making a
circuit around the patch of anse, we
took stands In an open glade In the
general direction the turkey had head-
ed. Then my friend began calling
again and It was not long until the
turkey answered him. It came closer,
as we coulI tell from Its calling, until
as we could tell from its calling, until
and shaking as It made Its way
through it. We were scarcely more
than twenty yards from the edge of
the cane, our positions about seventy
yards apart, and, from the way the
turkey was coming, it looked as If
it would come out into the glade ex-
actly between us. But It topk one
df those strange frealts so edmmon
with turkeys, and, when almost out
of the cane, turned to the left, to-
ward my position, and, still keeping
out of sight In the protecting mass
of cane ct*eled toward me. On it

THE STRENGTH OF AN EAGLE.

Weight the Bird Could Carry In
Flight-His Strong Claws.
While I cannot give any positive
proof of how much a bald eagle can
carry, I should suppose that he could
carry at least as much in propor-
tion to his weight as a hawk or a
horned owl. I have the recorded
weight of a male bald eagle weighing
nkte aud one-quarter pounds and a
female weighing twelve pounds.
A horned owl will weigh from four
to five pounds, and I have several
times known one to carry off a large
house cat. One was a very large
one and the owner, told me he could
bear the cat cry as he was being
carried off. Now, any one who will
weigh a large house cat will find it'
to wrigh at least ten pounds.
I have seen a goshawk carry off
a hen fully twice its own weight, and
I have taken from a marsh hawk a
very large chicken which would weigh
more than twice what the hawk
would. The marsh hawk is one of
our weakest hawks, but he had car-
ried this chicken over a quarter of a
mile. My belief is that if a hawk
or horned owl can carry more than
twice Its weight (and I know posi-
tively that they can) that an eagle
could, if occasion required, do as
much In proportion to his weight,
which would be to carry eighteen
or twenty pounds.
Once when an eagle, shot through
the body with a rifle ball, lay on its
back, I upended a long road skid and
dropped it on him. Before It reached
him he stretched up and caught it in
his claws and held it up the length
of his legs above him. I walked up
on the skid and stood above him and
he easily held me and the skid, which
I should judge would weigh more
than twenty pounds. I took pains to
be weighed the same day and weighed
119 pounds. Put a stick in the claw
of a wounded eagle and let him grasp
a .small tree with the other and a
man must be stronger than I ever
was to take the stick from him.--

You must never walk barefoot on

or an odious worm, called a "jigger,"
wi1li ontcr your foot to raise a nuim-
erous family and a painful swelling..
On the other tand, be sure when
you put on boots or thoes that, how-
ever hurried, you turn them upsidel
down and look inside, l(st a scor-
pion, a small snake, or a perfectly
frightful kind of centipede, may be
lying In ambush. Never throw your
clothes carelessly ulpn the ground,
but put them away at on,. In a tin
box, and shut it tight. or a perfect
colony of fierce-biting creatures will
beset them. And., above all quinine.

Why Coral Is Popular.
The dealer he!d up two strings of
coral. They were of equal size, but
one wan dark and dull in 'hue. the
other beautifully pink and translu-
cent.
"The dark one," he said, 'Is w..rth
50 cents, thi pink one is worth
$500.' That is what makes coral so
popular. It suits all pocketbooks.
"All the worhl over it goes. These
strings of rough, uncut beads are f r
the dead, the dead of India. They
are put around the necks of the
bodies about to be burnt in the ghat.4
"These large and blood red beads
go to Africa. They are much liked
by the natives, whose, lark skin they

perfectly suit.
"Here are a lot of ceral hands with
fingers extended in a V. the gesture
that wards off the evil eye. The coral
hands are for Italy, where the belief
in their emeacy is wilis)prcad."-
New Orleans Times-Democrat.

Kenvon Cox's Criticism.
Kenyon Cox had little to say con-
cernlng the 1lorglum article, and that
little was far, far from complimen-
tary.
"The article doesn't, amount to n
row of pins," he declared. Then, at
ter a short pause, he aided:
"No art that has amounted to any-
thing in the history cf the world has
been an original art.
"Art must borrow. Only a silal?
Infusion of the artist'; personality la
called for in works of art.
"American artists are as genuine,
andI sincere as any cther artists any-
where."
And, after another short )ausle:
"Of course, I am tempted to sn.v
a lot of things about Mr. llorgluin
himself, but-well, that's all I have to
say."

there is a good market for their plum-

Trade in these feathers has already

Europe.
The flora is tropical, but the islandd
seems to be fairly healthful. No rep-

Petroleum Production Is Large.


The petroleum production of the
United States in 1907, says the Geo-
logloal Survey report was character-
tzed by a total output far in excess
of any previous year, an unparalleled
sacumulation of stocks, In spite of
whioh the price of all grades of oil
was kept at A high level. Sensation-
al developments were the great In-
crease in the new Illinois field and
the phenomenal yield of Oklahoma,
together with increase in both quan-
tity and price In California. The
total product was 1CG,095.335 barrels
in,1907, an increase over 1900 of 39,-

The Perky Sparrow.
They are declaring war against the
sparrow, who Is ald to annex 10 per
cent. of the yealty harvest of corn.
But why not---4f he be obnoxious-
turn him Into food?
Australia bad its plague of rabbits;
and finally began to shoot, tin and
export rabbits. And the rabbits could
hardly keep up the record of popula-
tion.
Now the sparrow has three genera-
tions In a year, and increases (if not
dbouraged) at an amazing rate. Eat

Sharing His Celebhrtles.
The management of the various
children's libraries tave taken a letf
from the Arabian Nights. At any
rate, each library now boasts a mod-
ern Scherazade In the person of a
professional storyteller, whose mis-
sion it is to entertain the small bor-
rowers at stated intervals by the re-
cital of tales wise and otherwise.
On one of these occasions recently
the story was Mrs. Peary's Snow
Baby. The narrator must have been
more than ordinarily vivid inher de-
scriptive passages, for at the end of
the ceremonies a little Italian boy
came forward and made his modest
plea. "Mrs. Peary," he began, win-
ningly, "please come around to my
nouse with me? I'd like my mother
to look on a lady that had lived in
such cold places."-'New York Press.
Well Named
"The only thing that kept me from
being furious," said the woman, "was
the title of one of the pictures. It
was called 'The Unexpected Return.'
My husband's cousin bought the pie-
tures from us, 'The Unexpected Re-
turn' and five others, for next to
nothing. When abe got the pictures
home the rest a the family did not
like them, so whmout a word of warn-
ing she packed them up and express-
ed them back accompanied by a po-
lite Mittle note requesting me to re-
fund the toney. What amused me
was the appropriateness of that title,
'The Unexpected Return.' That struck
me as being so funny that after I
got through laughing about it I for.
got to be angry."-New York Press.

When the little girl returned her
mother asked if she had done as she
told her.
"Not zactly, mamma," was the re-
ply. "Marian took the biggest piece
of apple end spilled lemonade on
my new dress, so I couldn't asy what
you told me* but I told her mother
good night, and said I guessed Marian
had a very pleasant time."-Judge.
