Light and Darkness as Remedies.
"Light is good for toothache. Dark-
ness Is bad for it. If you are a
toothache suffered, haven't you of-
ten noticed how the pain in your
jaw Increases when, late at night,
you turn off the lamp and try to
sleep?"
The speaker was a doctor. lie
went on.
"Light, you see, is good for the
toothachr. There are a number of
diseases it is good for-asthma, cold
in the head, earache. These diseaseJ
in the dark all grow worse.
"Darkness is good for a sick head-
ache and for neuralgia and for nau-
sea. Haven't you noticed it?
"Light and darkness-they are
remedies recognized at l.st, and to-
day we prescribe them the same as
we do quinine of nux."--New Orleans

Location.
9B Mateo, Putnam County, is alt-
"atod on the cakt bauk of the St
Jebas River, and 90 feet above It
Tho highest point In Florida, east of
the St. Johns river, which is one-haid
-mile wide at this polLt.
Five miles from Palatka, our county
met, (city of 4,000). miles from
tL Augustine and about 76 miles
from Jacksonville.
The terminus of a branch of the
Florida tast Coast Railway. The doe
pot being three-quarters of a nu;e
from the river whart.
Advantages and Attractions.
San Mateo has good shtll~,d roads
and mile of hard sidewalks. Beauti-
ful wateroaks line both sides uf

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
gencroJity of the citizens and pulling
toget?,er. The state and county taxes
are about 20 mills on about one-third
valuation.
Good hunting and flNhing, deer, tur-
key, ducks and quail, black bass and
other Florida fresh water fish.
GooJ 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 Sea
Mateo enjoys isa transportation; being
on both river and rail is an advantage
that few Florida points enjoy. The
past season, for inFtaxce, 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 Jacksonville,
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 out of Jacksonville
on the Clyde ship the next. This lit-
tle matter this season alone was
worth thousands of dollars to the San
Mateo growers and the homeseeker
will do well to bear in mind trans-
portation and cheap rates that come
with competition, in selecting a Flor-
ida location.

came mostly from the northern states.

STATE TROOPS' UNIFORMS

Will Be Same as Those Worn By
United States Regular Army.
Tallahassee, Fla.--On or about Jan.
k vary 1, 1909, the different organita-
tions of the Florida state troops are
to be supplied with the olive drab
service uniform. General orders cover-
ing the Issue of the new clothing
have been issued from the general
headquarters of the troops.
This will be good news to the offi-
cers and enlisted men of the troops,
as the subjevt of clothing for the
troops has always been a serious one
for commanding officers of the vari-
ous units. The new clothing will en-
able the troops to make a much neat-
er appearance when turned out for oc-
casions of ceremony.
Under a recent act of the national c
congress, the organized militia of the i
several states in the country must
comply in organization, clothing and
equipment, with the war depart- t
S ment's regulations governing the reg-
ular army of the United States.
In carrying out the provisions of e
this act, all states in the country are I
receiving the same clothing, arms and 1
general equipment as Is prescribed for I
the regular army.

Trees Can Be GrewIs i Fleida I One
Year. IE Brepe h Requlres
Three Years.

Jacksonville, Fla.-That the soil of
Florida is peculiarly, adapted to the
cultivation of the mulberry tree for
the production of the silk worm and
that the manufacture of silk will
eventually prove one of the leading
Industries of the state, is the firm be-
lief of Dr. V K. Osiglan, the Ameri-
can silk culturist.
Relative to silk manufacturing and
the advantage Florida offers to this
Industry, Dr. Oslgian has the follow-
ing to say:
Gold trees or mulberry tdees grow
as much in Florida in one year as
they do in Europe in three years.
Florida is the Eden of the mulberry
tree, and paradise of the silk worm.
The silk producing season fn Florida
may be extended over a period of
six to eight months, while in Europe
it only lasts as many weeks. In Chi-
na the mulberry is called the golden
tree on account of the great renumer-
ation it has brought her people. We
can and should raise our own silk and
keep at home more than $150,000,000
that we pay to foreign countries each
year for our silk.
"The time required to raise a crop
of silk or silk season is from April
5 to May '14, forty days, or one-ninth
part of a year. while for a cotton
crop forty-nine weeks are required.
"The work is nearly all indoors,
light, pleasant and Interesting. A
family of five persons, including say,
three children 10 or 15 years of age,
dan, in six weeks, care for a crop of
six ounces of silk worm eggs or
seeds.
"Cost for eggs at $1.50 per ounce,
$9. A good average production of an
ounce of eggs is one hundred and
twenty to one hundred and fifty
pounds of fresh or forty to fifty
pounds of dry cocoons.
"Dry cocoons are those after the
chrysthlls are killed by heating or
steaming and cocoons are thoroughly
dried, six ounces of eggs should pro-
duce them, as a good average crop,
two hundred and forty pounds of co-
coons.
"Food required for six ounces of
eggs will be about 1,000 to 12,000
pounds of any kind of mulberry
leaves, the white mulberry being the
best variety to use. At two or three
years old they will produce thirty-
five to fifty pounds of leaves, or, say,
three hundred two-year or three-year-
old trees would be necessary to pro-
duce the 12,000 pounds of leaves
needed. Mulberry trees are properly
planted about twelve feet apart, and
at this distance it means three hun-
dred trees to the acre. So that one
acre will furnish enough trees for this
crop, but as they grow, they rapidly
Increase in food furnishing capacity.
A five-year-old tree will furnish eigh-
ty-five to one hundred pounds; an
eight~year-old tree, one hundred and
forty to one hundred and fifty
pounds, and a fifteen-year-old tree,
two hundred pounds.
"If to the work above required is
added the work of two grown persons
for the last two weeks of feeding the
worms, and two more workers during
the last week of feeding, the crop can
be doubled and twelve ounces of
hands can be handled. Using six hun-
dred three-year.old trees and two
acres of land, and the returns would
be between $450 aad $5600.
"The only care the trees require


during the year is to trim them and
keep down the weeds, bat for pasture
the mulberry orchard will be worth
more than all cost for Its care, and
until the trees are averal years old
some garden truck or crop can be

trees.

opening the November term of the
Dade county criminal court of record,
Judge W. I. Mecalf announced his In-
tention of sending to the chalngang
every one convicted of carrying a con-
cealed deadly weapon.
Osceola county has been called
"Sportsman's Paradise." Thirty?five
deer and a great quantity of smaller
game were killed in that county one
week in November, so far as known,
and there were other parties of
sportsmen out who did not report
how many they killed.
A young man named Ed Windham,
working at one of the sawmills at
Cantonment, north of Pensacola, was
cut in half by one of the saws in the
mill Where he was employed.
Game seems to be abundant in
Florida this season. Quail are so
plentiful around Miami that it is said
to be a diicult matter for the farm-
ers to get a seed bed started, as the
little birds help themselves to the
seed about as often as they are plant-
ed. Steamboat captains plying on
the smaller streams report seeing
many deer along the banks and other
stories are told of the abundance of
game in the state.
What purports to be a complete,
though not official, return of the re-
sults of the late general election, ex-
cept as to presidential electors and
also omitting the figures for congress-
man in the First district, shows
great increases in the vote for the
democratic and socialist candidates
for governor over 11904, while the re-
publican vote has hardly more than
held its own. The socialists nearly
doubled their vote for that office over
that of 1904, a4 follows Healey, 1,270;
Pettigrew, 2,437. The increase in the
democratic vote was more than 4,000.
The official canvass may alter these
figures, more or less.
The Seabreeze city council has
granted a 30-year contract for a
trackless trolley system in the city.
Doubtless this will stir the others of
that cluster of fair cities to emula-
tion.

DEAFNESS CANNOT BE CURED
qo local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf-
ness, and that is by constitutional
remedies. Deafness Is caused by an
inflamed condition of the mucous lin-
Ing of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube is inflamed you have a
rumbling sound or impefect hearing,
and when it is entirely closed, Deaf-
ness is the result, and unless the in-
tiammation can be taken out and this
tube restored to its normal condition,
hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases out of ten are caused by
Catarrh, which is nothing but an in-
flamed condition of the mucous sur-
faces.
We will give one hundred dollars
for any case of Deafness (caused by
catarrh) that cannot be cured by
Hall's Catarrh Cure. Send for circu-

I sat in my office in New York, one
afternoon late in November, with a
letter on my de.ik. It was from my
sister.
"Come home," sihe sali, "and sllpnd
Thanksgiving with us. You have
made excuses before, but don't do so)
this time. I)rop busing( ss for a few
days. and write that you will be here.
Let us have an old fahlion'd Thanks-
giving once more."
How eculd I go? I would have to
start on the day before the holiday,
and, with us, that was always a busy
day. Then there were other reasons
why I should remain ht New York.
But the more I reflected, the more
plainly I pictured in my mind the
old home. Some one could take my
place for a day or two; the engage-
ments could be put over for a time.
I felt a longing for the scenes of my
childhood. I had stayed away too
long. I resolved to go home.
The morning before Thanksgiving
Day found me a passenger on the day
express for Boston. I had calculated
to arrive there about mid afternoon.
and to reach Beverly, my destination,
about six o'clock. Then for a brisk
drive, or sleigh ride. three miles over
the hills to the well remembered
farmhouse.
As the train whirled along I set-
tied back in my seat, and. forgetting

the cares of business, gave myself up
to pleasant anticipation. A fine, driv-
ing snowstorm had set in, and bid
fair to continue all day.
A tall man, wearing glasses, and
having a scholarly appearance, occu.
pled the seat across the aisle from
me. My attention had been drawn
to him by his asking me for a match
just before the train started, as he
made some remark upon the snow-
storm. After we had got undrr way,
I noticed him two or three times re-
garding me Intently, as though anxi-
ous to engage in conversation.
I lay back in my seat, with my
head resting on the cushions, lazily
watching the driving snowflakes, and
S lUaenlag to the humming of the

"This Is my laboratory," said my
host, with pride. "This is where my
Idea first came to me. and where I
have worked out all the details. See
here Is the 'T)e-troyer' itself. That's
the name I hiv e given my invention.
I have perfected it, so that It only
requires the addition of the contents
of this bottle to start it," he explain-
ed. at the same time taking a bottle
filled wih some liriuld from a shelf.
"Three minutes after this is added
nothing can stop an explosion, which
would have force enough to totally
demolish this entire building."
"But, professor" I said, "you have
not given me the names of the ingre-
dients which go to make up the ex-
plosive."
"And you could hardly expect me
to do that-yet. I must first protect
my patent right and in the meantime
must keep my secret," replied the
professor.
As he spoke, he walked toward the
machine, which appeared similar to
a large clock, and was constructed of
heavy iron. lie still held the bottle
In his hand. Suddenly, his foot
catching in a torn place in the car-
pet. he was thrown violently; thr
bottle fell from his hand and was
dashed to pieces against the top of
the machine.
Hle arose, pale as death, and ap-
peared to be terribly excited.
"Go! Get out of here!" he cried.
"The contents of that bottle have
gone In with the rest. Come! No
time to explain now-run for your
life! This building will be a wreck
In three minutes!" And without
waiting to see whether I followed or
not, he dashed from the room, slam-
ming the door after him.
I started to follow, but found to
my horror that the door on which
was a spring lock was fast. It was
of solid oak-I could not force It. I
was locked Into the room with an
explosive about to go off, and had no
power to hinder the catastrophe.
I turned to the machine. It was
Iron covered and resisted my every
effort to reach the inside. If the pro-
fessor poke the truth, I had less than
two minutes to live.
The old farmhouse, the meadows,
the brook where I used to fish, the
schoolhouse, all came back to me in
that short time. I thought of my
parents and my sister, waiting, look.
ing forward to the holiday, and the
family reunited. Wculd they irvcr
hear what had become of me? The
newspapers would, no doubt, have en
account of a fatal explosion, but with-
out the details.

clety or sociological expert wnhic we
shoi'ld suppose must be certain to
take place, we venture to suggest one
probable conclusion of such investi-
vation, and to submit the question of
its soundness to those of our readers
who a3 a result of Christmas are in
a position to observe the varying
effects of the different kinds of toys
upon the temper, happiness and gen.
eral wefl-belng of the victims-we
rmcran the re lpients.
The conclusion which we thus sub.
mit is that what children want I.,
toys and not fizz-jig.-things that
they can play with, not things of the
song and dance variety, sole artists
that need to be wound up and then
(o all the playing for themselves.
What a child wants from his toys is
not primarily entertainment, but ex-
pression; the expression of his own
ideas through the use of his own
faculties, not the expression of th,
ingenuity of the clever man who
made the toy. Toys are accordingly
welcomed to him are treasured, and'
become( a part of hi- life. In propor-
tion as they are plastic to his hand
and mind. in proportion as he can
build with them or use them in tlhe
drama of which so great a part of
his play consists. Sand is the most
popular play material with very
small hlhildren: then come block,
then a variety of objects, but always
such as the child can do things with,
up to the football or baseball of co!.-
lege sport.
A doll that could dance ragtime
and whistle "Hall, Columbia," would
not be so popular, after the first five
-minuties, as a clothespin dressed in
a bit of rag. The mechanical marvel
is good when ragtime and "Hail, Co-
lumbla," are wanted-that ib. fairly
good. not quite so good as she would
be if she did not provide the music
and dancing for herself. All the rest
of the time she is wholly and per-
fectly useless. The rag doll on the
other hand, has endless possibilities.
Like the American girl, she is fit for
any part and will adorn any station
in life,. 'from cook to princess as
If she had been born to It. And such
must a real doll be, or lose her job.
for life is varied and exacting, and
one doll in her time plays many
parts.-Boston Evening Transcript.

He Had Figured It Out.
A negro who lived in Maron, Ga,
was suddenly bereaved cf his wife.
who had relatives in Augusta. l)ur-
Ing the completion of the funeral ar-
rangements the widower had gone to
the railroad station and asked th,"
price of round trip tickets to Augus-
ta-two tickets, one for himself and
one for the remains. The azent ex-
plained that while the widower m!ght
need a round trip for himself it
would be necessary to purchase only
one-way ticket for the late lamented,
the agent taking It for franted that
the Interment was to be at Augusta.
"I knows what I'm doing lprotest-
ed the negro, somewhat heatedly. "I'se
got a definite Idea what I wants! Mah
wife has got more's eighty-nine kin-
folks down to Augusty. an' all o'
'em wants to see her befo' she's

Talk.
We are told that It is harder to
make talk than it used to be. Yet
talk was never cheaper than now.
Probably nothing has happened ex-
cept what is all the time a ha:ppen-
Ing in every kind of manufacture-
ancient processes have been super-
seded. A woman who, in this day
and age, expects to make talk by
hanging out her winter furs to a!r
will most likely be disappointed. But
what were she to drink cocktails
and smoke cigarettes in the princi-
pal restaurants, or, if her womanly
lellcacy shrinks from that, to over.
draw her husband at the bank to
pay her losses at bridge?
We are so exacting a generation
that almost any sort of worthy
achievement is conditioned about as
much on the employment of ttrietly
modern methods, as on whole-hearted
endeavor.-Puck.

which is sure to shrink when washed.,
use No. 200 thread on bobbin and top

-Boston Post.


TO EXTRACT A SPLINTER.
"When a splinter has been driven
deep into the hand," says the Wom-
an's Home Companion, "It can be ex-
tracted without pain by steam. Near
ly fill a wide mouthed bottle with
hot water, place the injured part over
the mouth of the bottle and press
tightly. The suction will draw the
Qesh down, and in a minute or two,
the steam will extricate the splinter
and the inflammation will disappear."'
CARE OF SILK GLOVES.
To prevent the destruction of whitn
and light colored silk gloves by wash-
1lg, they should be hung with the
tips up. To accomplish this, pin each
finger to a cloth, then bang the cloth
'with the arms of the gloves down.
This lets the water run into the por-
tion of the gloves which received the

ly mad prevents the destructive ac-
tion of water on silk.-Boston Post.


USES FOR BORAX.
No one should be without borax in
the home. For the hands and face
tee one teaspoonful to a basin of'
water. It is fine for cleaning teeth,
and false teeth should be kept sweet
and healthy by standing over night
la a glass of water to which has been
added a little 'borax. For the head
one cannot find a better scalp cleans-
er. Use half a cupful for the bath.
A teaspoonful to a pint of boiling
stardh adds to the gloss and lessens
the sticking. For moths-before lay-
lag carpets sprinkle borax around the
edges and crevices. To drive away
vermin, water bugs, etc.-Sprinkle

. altdeans enjoy the well-earned
repUtation of being one of the most

pertstition exists wherever there is a
human being, but Mexico seems to
be the place where all human super-
stitlns are centred. To.such an ex-
tent is this true that superstition has
become almost a kind of religion, ov-
erning every act of the people.
Take the arerage Mexican of the
poorer classes and you may hear from
his lips hair-raising stories of ghosts
and fairies and devils. He will tell"
you of the rare qualities of many ani-
mals, plants and stones, of the things
you can do and those you cannot do
on certain" days of the week or the
month, and, finally, he will Invite you
to make the sign of the cross to drive
away the devils and the ghosts that
may have been attracted by the con-
versation you have had,
From their earliest childhood the
peons are taught to make the sign
of the cross before going to sleep at

indlins abhor owlets; they say:
"When an owlht sings on Indlan dies;
It may be untrue, yet It always hap-

Butterflies are good or bad omens,
according to th Ir color. White ones
bring ha;)pincss; yellow ones advise
us to maintain alive our hopes of lova
or fortune, and black ones announce
that death Is stalking around us or
our relatives.
The dog is the greatest friend of
man. no doubt about that. as he is
endowed with the power of seeing
ghosts, devils and death. When yod

that he is warning you against some

A Resourceful Witch Doctor.
Sir Joseph Ward, -premier of New
Zealand, says that there are few tight
places from which the Maori witch.
doctor cannot extricate himself,
thanks, in a measure, to his devotees'
credulity.
Runa, a local power in magic, once
claimed that he could walk on water
and went to the beach with a num-
ber of natives who were anxious for
him to perform the feat.
"Do you truly believe that I can
walk on the water?" he asked them.
"Yes! Yes!" his followers cried,
with one voice.
"Then there is no need for me to
do it," the chief coolly replied, and
he turned away. followed by the awed
natives.-St. James's Budget.

The Tallest Actress.
This distinction belongs to Miss
uone Smith, who plays Ia Bebe Bax


in the new Drury Lane drama. She
stands 6 feet 1% inches in her stock-
Ings.
It seems somewhat incongruous
that she should wear high heels, her
hair brushed high over a pad and a
Aigh hat in order to give a greater
Impression of eight. That is, how-
ev(r, what she does, so as to realize
the description of being 6 feet 4
inches in height in accordance with
thke design of the authors.


Fighters from Babyhood.
An Indian boy begins to handle a
light bow as soon as he toddles. Hisi
bow is then taller than himself.
By the time he attains the age of
twelve he is permitted to us sharp
arrows. At the age of eighteen he
is strong enough to use a man's bow.
A white man, when he takes an
Indian bow for the first time, finds ihe
can hardly bend it. But to shoot a
full sized Indian bow requires knack
as much as anything.--Home Notes.
They Had 80o Many.
Mr. and Mrs. Oldwed had so many
children they didn't know what to
do: so they took the whole pack
off to a picnic on the river and let
them run riot.
'Suddenly a small boy ran up to air.
Oldwed and cried out:
"Papa! papa! Archibald has fallen
into the water!"
"Archibald? Archibald?" repeated
the father. Tlwhen ho turned to his
wife. "Mary." ho inquired, anxiously,
'nave we an Archibald ?"-Tit-Bits.

This 1 Ph4lele4n ye B itelly
TM t it e Meet VirWuent
Is sdoool a Oleaob to the salmaj
orgfabmn 'ads Dr. Henry Smlth Wil-
liams in MoClare's Magalune. 4
poison beleg, to the ordinary Macep0
anee of the word, an agent that may
Injuriousty affect the tissues of the
body, and tend to shorten life.
Studerits *of pathology answer this
question with no uncertain voice. The
matter is presented In a nutshell
by the professor of pathology at Johns
Hopkins University, Dr. William H.
Welch, when he says: "Alcohol In suf-
flcent quantities .is a poison to all liv-
ing organisms, both animal and vege-
table." To that unequivocal pto-
nouncement there Is. I believe, no dis-
senting voice, except that a word
quibble was at one time raised over
the claim that alcohol- in exceedingly
small doses might be harmless. The
obvious answer Is that the same
thing Is true of any and every poison
whatsoever. Arsenic and strychnine,
in appropriate doses, are recognlzeJ
by all physicians as admirable tonicq;
but no one argues in consequence
that they are not virulent poisons.
Open any work on the practice of
meircilne quite at random, and wheth-
er you chance to read of diseased
stomach or heart or blood vessels or
liver or kidneys or muscles or con-
nective tissues or nerves or brain-
It Is all one; .In any case you will
learn that alcohol may be an active
factor in the causation, and a retard-
ing factor in the cure, of some, at
least, of the Important diseases of the
organ or set of organs about which
you are reading. You will rise with
the conviction that alcohol is not
merely a poison, but the most subtle,
he most far-reaching, and, Judged
)y its ultimate effects, incomparably
ht most virulent of all poisons.
