Palatka Public Library.
The Public Library at Palatka is
open every afternoon, except Sun-
day, In the City Hall. Saturday it
remains open all day. An invitation
is extended to the citizens of Putnam
County to make the Library their
resting place when in Palatka. The
current magazines, weeklies and

be accepted by many who wish a
comfortable place to rest after the

The Library is one of the highly
appreciated public institutions of
Palatka. It is not a "Carnegie,"
but is maintained by a healthy list
of subscribers who pay $1.00 a year

tary contributions are also often ten-
dered for its support.

WORTH QUOTING t


It Is easier, thinks the Boston Poae,.
to rest too much than it is to work
too much.
Chicago boy, 'because he broke a
street lamp, sent twenty-five cents to
the city hall. Boys will be boIys, but
this one is a marvel, to the Atlant
Journal.
It's easy enough, contends the At-
lanta Journal, to put suffragettes in
jail, double padlock the doors and
use other precautions to keep her
safe; but you can't shut her up.
Some love affairs would seem to in-
dicate, to the Boston Post. that Cupid
ought to drop his bow and arrow
and get a gun.
The Louisville Courier-Journal
poet warbles:
Of all sad words of ,ngue or pen
The saddest are: "There ain't no
men."
A bill passed in Oregon prohibits
hat-pins in excess of tei inches In
length. Here is a step toward a
higher olvilzation which the Now
York World avers, might perfectly
well have gone at least an inch
further.
It it is true that the first oil kias
lived 300 B. C., we must admit con-
fesses the Louisville Courier-Journal,
that he hadn't the advantages oL a
good example that should have kept
the present oil king from behaving
like a famished aaconda.
"Keep house slcentioally," says a
New York exchange. But, objects
the tlanta Constitution, all the

sower.

The taoneiat auScees of the m*del

%


man beings, in the long run, prophes-
les the New York Journal, will learn
the truth put before them years ago
by Charles Fourier, that men are
governed by their attractions, and
that the success of the Individual and
of the race depends upon giving full
play to the attractions or passions.
Thwarting them or coercing them
means failure.


"Happily, the frost all over Russia
was attended by an ample snowfall,"
reported Consul John Grout, from
Odessa. "The snow effectually pro.
teeted all the crops which had suMff-
ciently developed to be in a condition
to pass with safety over the winter,
which condition, however, 'had not
been fully attained by some of the
crops in the north and in the south.
east. aThe plants here were in many
instances too young and too tender,
and usually favorable circumstances
were required to carry them through
the usual rigors of a Russian win-
ter. The snow cover which, except,.
ing in the extreme south and south-
east. extends all over Russia, did this

LecatIon.
Baa Mateo, Putnam Couaty, Is it.
mated on the east bank of the St
Johns River, and 90 feet s atve it
The highest point in Florida, east of
the St. Johns river, which is onehalf
mile wide at this point.
Five miles from Palatka, our oounty
Jeat, (olty of 4,000), 38 mile trom
St. Augustine and about 76 mtle
from Jacksonville. *
The terminus ,of a bUanch of tho
Florida East Coast Railway. The de-
pot being three-quarters of a mie:
from the river wharf.
Advantages and Attrsetlorft.
Ban Mateo has good shelled roads
and miles of hard sidewalks. Beauty.
tful wateroaks lHe both sides of
streets, and meet overhead nla many
places.
Two churches, public and private
schools, telegraph, telephone, express,
money order postoice, three mails
dally, meat market, two 'general
Stores, who take orders and deliver
goods at your door, weekly paper.
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
generosity of the citizens and pulling
together. The state and county taxes
are about 20 mills on about one-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 weelf; $2.00GO day.
Six thousand people went through
the San Mateo Fruit Company's grove
here last season.
One of the best advantages Ba
Mateo enjoys Is transportation; being
on both river and rail is an advantage
that few Florida points enjoy. The
past season, for InFtaxoe, railroads
and terminals at. Jacksonville were
more than congested and frult ahip*
ped from points down the central
part of the state was, in some oases,
three weeks getting to Jacksouville,
on route to northern markets, and
did not bring enough to pay frolght,
while San Mateo shippers, at same
time, would ship from here one day
and have fruit go out of Jacksoafllle
on the Clyde ship the next. This Ut-
tie 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 oome
with competition, in selecting a Flor-
ida location.
The population is about M0, who
eame mostly from the northern states.
As a class they are men of means,
progressive and sociable. Have a' bet-
ter class of home than can be found
in any place in the south of its lisse.
The buildings kept painted and
grounds mn good order.
Healthfulnesa.
On account of Its high altitude,
there is no healthier spot In Florida
for all the year round or for the wla,
tsr visitors. For those who come to
Florida on account of health, many
$ad this higher altitude, dry and
balnsy air is better than the lower,
more harsh air found in salt water
motions.
Business.
The principle business lai orange


growing. Some 400 arWs In giro
are here, and as this proves proli
able, thort i not much attention pa"
other crips, although there are o
-~etablee grows for lphelmat ad

"I suffered from pains in my head, shoulders,

/ .Burns Gas From Oil.
A new form of oil lamp has been
recently brought out for use where a
moderate illumination is desired. It
makes use of no wick In the ordinary
I


sense of the word and performs its
mission without either compression
or gas storage, rendering the lamp
quite safe. The vaporizing la auto-
matic and instantaneous, and takes
place in the burner, which is th'e es-
sential feature of the invention and
which is made entirely of glass, all
in one piece. At the top is a bulb,
about one Inch in diameter; below
a tube, the lower end of which
should always be submerged in the
hole. A small round wick passes up
through this tube and througL tne
centre of the bulb to a small circular
opening in the top of tho bulb. When
the wick takes fire the flame com-
pl4tely seals the opening through
which the wick passes. The heat im-
mediately vaporizes the oil In the
wick Inside the bulb, and the vapor
or gas thus formed is consumed at
te top of the wick, burning wRhd a
clear, steady flame. On account of
the convenient shape of the burner
the device can be made entirely self-
eontalaed, In the shape and siWe of

Seir.Loading Cart.
In the Illustration below Is shown
a self-loading cart, the most recent of
the many devices designed to do away
with hand labor. A Pennsylvania
man is responsible for the compli-
cated piece of mechanical ing.inuity,
which, he says, will gather up dirt or
any article and deposit It autoimati-
cally in the cart. The apparatus is
placed in the rear of thet art, and
consists of a collector which cunnfects
with gears, wheels and other operrat-
ing paraphernalia. The collE tor
gathers up the dirt, etc., as the (art
is moving, raises It over the dash-
board and dumps It. Any ordinary
cart equipped with the apparatus can


collect a load ia a very few minute'.
Of course, it is uinei( tisary for tho
driver to dismount during the opera-
tion. When tho cart is filled levers
are disengaged and (he apparatus
temporarily put out of commission
until the cart is emptied and ready
for the next load.

FLOSIDA NEWS NOTES.


Indications are that there will be
half a hundred or more in the party
of Florida orange ,growers who will
leave April 20 for California to study
the methods that prevail In that state
In gathering and marketing citrus
fruits.
Some recent cases In Florida and
elsewhere suggest tbat the Scotch
verdict of "not proven" as a medium
between a verdict of guilty and one
of not guilty would .be a great relief
to the consciences of Jurors.
Palm Beach and Daytona seem to
be still crowded with tourists to their
full hotel capacity. Miami and St.
Augustine tell similar stories. Down
on the west coast, St. Petersburg at
least has as many tourists as it can
well care for, and Tampa is not com-
plaining of a dull season. Apparent-
ly every tourist resort In the state is
still full of winter visitors. This
season has been a remarkably suc-
cessful one and promises to last later
Into the spring than usual. Then
when the summer comes every tour-
let resort in Florida will begin car-
rying into effect the plans that are
already formed for adding to their fa-
cilities for housing crowds against
another season.
There is one thing the tourist who
hurries north before April misses-
the song of the mockingbirds, day
and night. They are beginning to be
heard already, soon they will be sing-
ing in every grove.


boI a bw hom w MWt SM U
-aph of the wi reu sysotema a ad.
Jaet to oo esa aviation is Thus re-
corded.
The report feom St. Auguatine is
that there will be about four times
as many Indian sand Spaniards to
take part In the Ponce de Leon cele-
bration this year as there were a
year ago.
Pensacola is not the only city In
Fl6rida which harbors loan sharks,
although It is the one which is curs-
ed with an unusually large number.
It is to be hoped that the Dscambla
member who promises to introduce in
the legislature a bill to muppress the
scandalous usery by which these men
ruin the unfortunate workingman who
has the Ill-luck to fall Into their
clutches will perfect his measure so
that It will pase the scrutiny of the
courts. If some of these human vam-
pires could be made for once In their
lives to do some honest work by be.
Ing sentenced to the chaingang., It
would be poetic Justice. The law de.
fines usury and the legal rate of in-
terest, but the loan sharks know how
to get around It, and every means of
evading the law should be guarded
against in the proposed measure.
The teachers who devote a lifetime
to making the children of the country
better citizens and giving them the
means of living happier and more
useful lives than If they had grown
up In Ignorance, deserve as well' of
their country as t pse who suffer
wounds and Inclur disease In fighting
itq battles. They are generally under-
paid and connot hope to save against
the privations of a dreary old age.
Some of them might have done this
and even hay eacqulred a competence
had they gone into some other profes-
sion or into some line of business.
Therefore the resolutions adopted hv
the State School Superintendent's
convention, tn. session at Lake City,
looking to the pensioning of teachers
who serve in that capacity for thirty
years are worthy of careful consider-
ation on the part of the legislature.
The warning conveyed by the Uni-
ted States geological survey in a re-
cent bulletin is one that should be
heeded. It Is to the effect that ob-
servations made by that survey in
connection with the Florida geological
survey show that artesian wells are
not inexhaustible. A comparison of
some wells that are shut off when
not In use with others that are al-
lowed to flow continuously shows b
decline in the head or volume of wa-
ter from the uncapped wells afer a
few years, the bulletin says. The
same result from reckless misuse Is
shown in Florida as in Indiana and
California, where wells have ceased
to flow when allowed to waste for
years. -Considering 4he usefulness of
artesian wells in Irrigation as well
as in supplying homes with potable
water, it might be well for owners
to heed the advice to see that the
wells are capped or otherwise shut
off when not In use.

Cadiatem Pamle Meo -.sdmal'
Wil Iet Have te oUderge de
Oerd Test
Tallahssee, Fla.-In a recent let-
ter recelit by Dr. A. A. Murphree,
president of the Rhodes scholarship
commission la Florida, from Dr.
Geeorge R. la"kin, agent for the
Rhodes Scholardlip trust, attention
was called to the fact that next Oo-
tober is the time specified for compet-
Itive examinations to be held for this'
scholarship. Dr. Parkin 'also stated.
that an Important concession had
been made by the examining commit-
tee relative to these examinations
which will hereafter make it easier
for a candidate to win out. Hereto-.
fore the test has been on the making
of a certain grade in the examina-
tions held In mathematics, Latin and
Greek, and in numerous cases where
brilliant records have been made by
young men in the two first named
studies, failure to pass in the Greek
requirements has disbarred them
from entering the English university.
Now, however, while the same ex-
aminations and grading are still re-
quired, the candidate, if he should
pass in mathematics and Latin at the
home examination, may, In the nine
months intervening between that ex-
amination and his departure for Eng-
land, take a special course in Greek
to make up his deficiencies. Then,
if he passes the examination given
him at Oxford before entrance he will
be admitted as a Rhodes scholar to
the university.
In case of a candidate passing the
home examination in all three stud-
ies, there will, as heretofore, be no
second test required of him at Oxford.
The candidate for this scholarship
must have passed his nineteenth

supervision of Dr. James N. Anderson,
professor of Latin and Greek at the
state university, but now the candi-

test are arithmetic, algebra, or plain
geometry, Greek and Latin grammar,
Greek and latin composition, and
sight translation from these languag-

words were spoken to Geo. E. Ble-
Vens, a leading merchant of, Spring-

one a lung specialist. Then was
shown the wonderful power of Dr.
King's New Discovery. "After three

was as well as ever. I would not
take all the money In the world for
what it did for my boy." Infallible

Reasonable Auto Speed

L&ws Needed
By Sidney S. Gorman.
9, the use of the motor-car became more general, the speed limits
were gradually increased, and the recognition of motor-cars as'
Si"ng-d'istance vehllc( has resultell in uniform speed limits
applicable throughout the State, being fixed by statute in practl-
A B Cally all of the States where automobiles are in general use.
In Illinois and, indeed, in nearly all of the States, the driving
of a motor vehicle at a rate of speed faster than the limits named
In the statute Is prohibited, without regard to -the conditions existing at the
time of the violation; and it is usually provided that nothing In the act
contained shnall be construed as authorizing the driving of the motor-c&r at
a rate of speed greater than is reasonable, having regard to the Iraffle and
the use of the highways, or so as to endanger the life or limb or Injure the
ifroperty gd any person. It therefore follows, and properly so, that an these
states a penalty may be imposed for driving a motor-car at a rWte of ten
miles per hour in a twenty-mile district If the conditions existing make the
teu-mile rate unreasonably fast.
In Mas.iachusetts, however, the statute provide tthet no person saall
drive a motor vehicle at a rate of speed faster than is reasonable, having
-proper regard to traffic and the use of the -way and safety of the public,
and makes the driving of a motor-oar In any highway outside the thickly
settled or hiu.4iness portion of a city or village at a rate in excess of twenty
ailes per hour for a distance of one-quarter of a mile prima-facle evidence
that the op irson operating such motor-car is running it at a rate of apeed
greater than is reasonable, etc. Similar provisions are made with reference to
the thickly settled or business portion of olties and villages, turning corners,
etc., where running at a rate of speed in excess of a lesser number of miles
per hour is made prima-facle evidence of a violation of the law. This primas,
face evidence may be overcome by proof that the accused was not, under
the conditions of the highway then existing, guilty of driving his car at a
rate of speed greater than was reasonable.
It must not be understood that under the provisions of the Massea
L chusetts statute, in order to sustail a conviction, a person must be shown to
l., have driven his car faster than twenty miles per hour in the district where
I, driving at a rate in excess is made prima-facle evidence of a violation of the
I' law, for the only test is that of raonableness. and, as In Illinotis, the proof
need show only that the rate of speed, without regard to the number of miles
S per hour, was unreasonably fast.-Leslie's Weekly.

It can thus be conveniently and easily
transported by the members oPthe

ble value to troops, huntsmen and
campers generally The tent shown
here is composed of a number of de-
tachable triangular sections, each sec-
tion being adapted to be folded upon
Itself and secured at the edges, to
form a poncho. For couvectl-g the
aeoUtons of the tent together buttons
and buttonholes are employed. When
using the tent section as a poncho the
arms are passed through the con-
nected edges between the buttons,
and any device, such as a string, is
tiUd about the walst. The device thus
applied gives the wearer free use of
his arms and provides a garment flt-
ting with closeamne for comfort and
protection for the wearer. By join-
Ing two sections a shelter tent can be
made. The pole is constructed of a
number of convenlent-tIsed sections,
which can be distributed among any

Some New Words.
A correspondent welcomes the new
words "aviator" and "aviation," but
asks whether, if "navis" gives "navi-
gator" and "navigation," "avs"
should not give "avigator" and "avi-
gation." However, he adds tolerant-
ly, we must not have too great a re-
gard for such niceties after having
allowed such words as "chlorodyne"
(literally "green pain") to become
current.
Another new word; which I noticed
on the boardings of a neighboring
town, is "picturedrome," which, be-
ing strictly interpreted, would be a
picture racecourse-not a bad name
for a cinadnatograph bhow. And this
naturally leads me to the skating rink
advertisements, which announce that
there are "three sessions daily,"
which, sinoe it presumably does not
refer to skating accidents, gives us
quite a new meaning for au old word,
remarkably different from its original
one.-Manchester Guardian.

Blind.

%NO m b-m, 1- Twomw


A short time ago the Baroness Von
Kranlchfeld (nee Miriam Gatdner, aa
Bnglish womnh, died in Bucharest.
This lady, who was one of the Queen
of Roumania's personal friends, was
writing a poem one day when a mist
suddenly spread over her eyes, and
she thus became In her fiftieth year
totally-blind. In spite of her adv.noed
age, however, the Baroness attended
an English school to learn the alpha-
bet and the use of the typewriter,
and In the end triumphed over her
affliction to the extent of being able
to make her own clothes and hats
without any aid whatever.
The story of this sightless Baroness
reminds one that there are quite a
number of blind people in the world
today who have earned name and
fame in spite of their affliction. Thou-
sands of sightless beings owe a debt
of gratitude to Dr. F. J. Campbell,
the blind principal of tho Royal Nor-
mal College for the Blind at Norwood,
who lost his sight in his fourth year.
While at play a thorn ran into his
eye, and by the carelessness of a doc-
tor he lost the sight of both eyes.
Nevertheless he became a splendid
musician and ultimately e3tabl!shed
the Royal Normal College for those
similarly afflicted as himself. At this
college pupils may learn how to earn
a good livelihood and enjoy life in
spite of the dark world in which
they live. Dr. Campbell himself not
only indulges in rowing, riding andt
cycling, but is such a skilful and ar-
dent mountaineer that Prof Tyndall
once said to him in Switzerland.
"Look here, Campbell, are you really
blind or only a humbug?"
The blind pianist Mendel, who has
appeared with such succei on the
London and provincial stage, won a
scholarship of 40 a year at the
Royal Normal College. Mendel has
a repertory of over 1.000 pieces, in-
cluding all the classics and modern
compositions, and bis reproductive
and extemporizing powers are not the:
least wonderful of his faculties.
For the past seventeen years the
-Middlesex Chronicle has'been edited
by a blind journalist. Mr. John Wha!l,
who occupies the editorial chair of,
thlI paper, is now 55 years old, and
has been blind since he was 13. He
was formerly an organist, but became
associated with journalism about
twenty years ago. He has long been
a familiar figure at the meetings of
municipal bodies, and his reports are'
noted for. their accuracy as well as
for theiv high'descriptive qualities.
Mr. W. Wolstenholme, who Is
known throughout the country by his
organ recital, has been blind from
birth, and tool his degree at an earlier
age than any one previously. One of
his musical tutors was Sir Edward
Elgar, who afterward showed his af-
fection for his pupil by acting as his
amanuensis when he took bis Mus.
eBae. at Oxford.
In America there la a remarkably
large number of blind men and won.-
en holding positions of prominence: I
Apart from the wonderful case of
Helen Keller-who has become so
learned in spite of the fact that when
a baby she suffered sa Illness which
rendered her not only blind, but also
deaf and dumb-one might mention
Miss Fanny Crosby (Mrs. Alexander
Van Alstyne) of Connecticut, who has
written over 5.000 hymns, including
that rand old favorite, "Bate in the
Arms of Jesus."

at Cohnmbia Uftlversdty. and J. D.
Herreso, the famous yacht designer
who modelled the last two defendoia
of the Amerlea's Cup. are all men
w'ho have triumphed over blindness.
Ha'reshoff, who lost his sight when
he was 15. has declared that his suo
ceq as a yacht builder rests largely
.m' the fact that he can picture so
pivilly in his mind the boats he saw
INd the models he owned duritig the
first fifteen years of his life. Prof.
(ampbell, by the way, thinks nothing I
of wo'sdng out Intricate chemical
formulae In his mind- while perform- i
Ing 'before his class experiments
which a chemist with two good eye"
undertakes with some anxiety.
The Irony of fate Is well Illustrate1
by the case of Dr. Emile Javal, the
famous French oculist, who became
sightless at the age of 62. .and who
now devotes- his time to teaching oth-
ers how to perform the operations

MR. MACBLINK ON BOOKS.


Ht Finds Gems In All, Though Ofter
With a Good Deal of Setting.
"It is some satisfaction to me te
think," said Mr. MacIlink. "that ;f,
ever I should be cast away on a lone
desert island I could get along very
comfortably if I had any books at all.
"I say any books. with the emphasis
on tha any advisedly, because I have
never yet seen any book that did not
have at least something in it wortt
reading for the pleasure conveyed
by it or for the knowledge it con-
tained. The dullest of ns have'
happy thoughts that please ourselves
and sometimes we have fancies bright
enough to please others; and we may
,be able out of our experience to iput
into a lush(e! of chaff a grain of in-
formation that will be of real value.
"I have never yet talked with any-
body from whom I did not learn some-
thing; and I have never yet real 'i
book, whoever dull or apparelintl
hopeless, from which I dlii not gain
&ome pleasure or profit.
"Lately I have read a long stry'
that was all talk and ruffles. nothin-4
to it, but having started I travelled on
and in the middle of it I camoi upon
five lines that contained a wise sug-
gestion for our guidance, something
really worth knowing, and I felt that
I had been far more than repaid.
"This is not a method of reading
that you can, as you miglit say, apply
baolkward. For Instance, I remember
reading once two lines of poetry that
Impressed me greatly, and I thought
to myself that the man who coul.i
write poetry like that must be a noble
poet; and so I bought his complete
works, in two volumes, but with some
few exceptions I found his lpoemis
pretty dry reading.
"So it may be that in many books
we uhalll find but a very small gem
and a good deal of setting; and I
would not counsel reading poor books
for th- i sake of what we may fin, in
them; we hall do better than that if
we can get good book-s, be't I do say
that if I were cast away on some
lono desert island 1 tould get along
very comfortably if I had any books-
at all; for 1 have never yet seen any
book that did not contain omie-.
thing."-New York Sun.

Sometimes I'm having grown folks

While they tell pleasant things about
how fast the children grow.
My grandma's real, you know, and
so they never speak to her-

A garrulous old lady might get hung

for an hour talking about the chil-
dren with the measles and the ohick-
ees with the pip. During all of which
time another neighbor, who desired
to send In an urgent eall for the

caused confusion and discontent
among the subscribers, because there
are times when a man needs the tte-
phone and needs it quick, says Harris
Dickson in "Ringing Up Rural Amer-
lca" in Hampton's Broadway Maga-
site. For Instance, ,Milly Hawkins,
the red-headed daughter of the dairy-
man, had been talking for one-half
hour, when the voice of a Dutch
farmer broke In:
"Hello, central, I vant -"
"Aw, cut It out," said Milly, "I'm
using this line." .
'IBut-" protested Hans.
"No but about It," said Milly. "I'm
talking; you shut up."
"I vant to speak to Insisted
Hans.
"No matter who you want to speak
to; keep off. I want you to understand
I'm a lady."
"But I vill reimburse you, madam,"
said Hans.
"I don't want to be reimbursed; I
want to talk."

Almost Lost His Head.
During one of the banquets of the
Church Congress in London, a certain
bishop had as his left-hand
companion a clergyman who
was completely 'bald. During des-
sert the bald-headed vicar dropped his
napkin and stooped to pick it up. At
this moment the 'bishop, who was
talking to his righthand neighbor,
felt a slight touch on his left arm.
He turned, and -beholding the vicar's
pate on a level with his elbow, said:
"No, thank you, no melon. I will take
some pineapple! "-Success Magazine.
On a Fool's Errand.
A Carlisle schoolmaster was one
day greatly annoyed by not getting
satisfactory answers to the questions
he put to one of the schoolboys. At
.last he called the dunce to the front,
and, handing 'him twopence, said,
"Here's some money; away you go
and buy some brains."
The master felt rather small when
the boy turned round with the query:
"And will I tell the shopkeeper they're
for you?"-Tit-Bits.

He was addressing a crowd one Sun-

Any methods adopted by the own-

the service and shorten the time re-
quired to fill the customers' orders
are always welcomed. The busy busi-
ness man has no time to spare for
his noonday meal, generally forcing


It down as quickly as possible. To
fcilitate matters a Philadelphian has
devised and patentnted an Ingenious at-
tavhmat for coffee urns which saves
a greafrdeal of time and annoyance.

Electric Cream Separator.
It is now possible to separate cream
from milk by the employment of elec-
tricity, the process requiring much
less time than with the costly cream
separators now in use. The process
consists in passing an electric current
through the milk to be treated, the
passage of the current causing the
separation of the cream from the
milk. The apparatus necessary is
shown in the accompanying illustra-
tion, the invention of a Kansas City
man. The milk is poured into the
funnel at the top and drops through
the tub onto the inclined chutes, ar-
ranged one above the other. Current
is supplied from adjacent storage bat-
teries. On its passage down the
chutes the milk will alternately be














subjected to positive and negative
currents, causin the rapid separation
of the partlqclb Of cream. The uilk
