Death of John L. Beauchain.
John L. Beauchain, secretary and
superintendent of the Moxie Nerve

of the concern.

The above notice of the death of
Mr. Beauchain, which occurred in
Boston on the 26th, though not un.-
expected, will cause sincere regret to
his many friends here. He came to
Ban Mateo three winters ago tor his
health and purchased the Webb
-property where he had planted a 12
acre orange grove.. He came again
this past winter but his health did
not improve and he gradually failed
till the first of April when he return-
ed to Boston. Mr. Beauchain was a
quite unassuming man but a true
friend, ever ready to do a kind act,
public spirited and held in the high-
east respect and esteem by hisle bus-
lness associates and friends.
The rates given by the F. E. C. Ry.,
on pineapples from Cub iin conm.
potion with the Mallory and Ward
lines are kicking up a rumpus from
the Florida growers and with mighty
good cause. It is reported that the
rate on Cuban pines to Cincinnati,
for Instance from Miami Is 81c per
crate while the rate on a crate of
Miami pines Is 79c. If there is ino
remedy for the Florida pineapple
grower its all up with the business.
As at the p-st time the difference
in rate 47c is Just about what tbe

acedunt sale last week of 2.4 boxes

The Rural New Yorker gives the
cost of laying a box of oranges from

all expenses from the tree, cartage
and commission In New York at
$1.78 per box. As Cuban oranges ell
from $1.60 to $3A0 per box in New

for growing them. The moral is
plain. If you want to grow citrus

Orange Growers at Tampa.
The Orange Growers Convention
called at Tampa Wednesday and
Thursday this week to hear the re-
ports of the California Committee
and to take action as to the for-
imation of a Union through which to
market our citrus fruit, was certain-
ly an enthusiastic assembly with
about 800 of the Florida Orange
Growers present. These 800 men
must have represented the past sea-
son an out-put of two million boxes
of fruit and millions of capital.
The Item will publish some of the
more important reports in later is-
sues. About $4,600.00 was raised in
a few minutes In the convention to-
ward expenses of organization of a
Florida Citrus Growers Union to be
as near along the lines of ,the Cali-
fornia organisation as is practicable
Ito appIy n Florida. A committee
ofO was appointed by the chair to
appoint a committee of 84 to perfect
this organisation. All citrus grow.
Ing counties with possibly the ex-
ception of St. Johns was represented
on this committee.
This committee, of 84 will per-
fect by-laws rules etc., regarding tihe
organization of the Florida Citrus
Union and Its sub or local Unions.
The report of this committee is ex-
pected in about two weeks and until
then Florida growers will not know
on exactly what terms or conditions
they may join or organize the local
Unions except as before stated these
rules will be practically as near as
possible like those of the California
Mr. W. H. Cook, of Pomona, was
appointed as Putnam's represent-
ative on the Committee of 84 of the
Florida Citrus Union at Tampa. Mr.
Frank Sampson was the Marion

successful business men and orange
growers in their sections and results

that come up where it may be alright
for members of the legislature to

But, alas and lack, waiting for a

been sadly disappointed, for instead

Beggars of Bombay.
The nuisance caused by beggars In
Bombay has assumed unbearable pro-
portions. The orientals practice char-
ity as a religious obligation and re-
lieve poverty where they find it. Re.
citals from Kebit and Marabal never
fall to touch the innermost chords
of the natives with their kinate rev-
erence for spiritualism, and the fakir
baoks up 'his appeal for alms with
profuse quotations from the poets.
Then there are lay beggars and re-
ligious beggars, the ash besmeared as-
ceties who practice mendicancy as a
hereditary profession. Last and not
least are the unfortunate sufferers
whom the loss of limbs or eyes or
some fell disease disables for work
and drives them to beggary as the
leat resource. These latter have a
genuine claim on our charity, but as
there are so few asylums in India
for the halt, the mahn and the blind
the streets and byways of towns are
flooded with beggars, pitiful types of
suffering humanity.-Raoh Gaftar.
Attitude Toward Death.
The normal attitude of men toward
death seems to be one of inattention
or evasion. They do not trouble
about it, and they resent its (being
called to their notice. On this point
the late Frederiok Myers used to tLll
a story which I have always thought
very illuminating. In conversation af-
ter dinner he was pressing on his
host the unwelcome question, what he
thought would happen after death. Af-
ter many evasions and much recalcit-
rancy the reluctant admission was ex-
torted: "Of course. If you press m',
I believe 4hat we shall all enter IntWo
eternal bliss; but I wish you wouldn't
talk about such disagreeable sub,
Jeots." This I believe is typical of the
normal mood 9f most men. They don't
want to be worried; and though prob-
ably, If the question were presse.l
they would *bleot to the idea of ox.
tintlon, they can hardly be said to
desire Immortality. Even at the point
of death, it would seem, this attitude
Is often maintalned.-Atlantie.

patience and of practice. Wild anl-

mees, the King of Oorea decided
eVn centuries ago that he would
ad a fitting token of his respect to
tmort, the powerful leader of the
elke clan, on the west coast of the
boutherm island of Kiuahlu. He order-
ed the royal bell founders, many and

rThe bell was successfully east and
wase loaded on a mammoth Junk at
the Corean town of Masampeo. The
Ounk and a fleet of convoys sailed for
the coast of Chikuzen In Japan, when
11 of the royal augurs had agreed
upon an auspicious day. The augurs
were not up in their business, for
bout half a mile off the Japanese
aven a heavy sea tipped the junk and

; No attempt was niade either by the
emissaries of the King or the retain-
ers of the Prince of Heike to fish for

esoendants of the Prince were cross-
Ing over the sunken bell In war for-
ays against the Kings of Corea and.
the Junks of the Coreans ravaging the
coasts of Klushlu.
But among the folks of the Japanese
island there sprang legends and rainy
night tales about the sunken bell of
the Corean King. When the sea rag-

asp a prodigal- barvet froa the sale of cotton goods deped
teon America for the raw supply.
The American people wave begun to realise the signicance
nla the fact that alien nations that never saw a cotton plant have
long site entered the kingdom of cotton and now divide doml0Ion
O sme themselves,. excluding the United States, where the cotton to grown.
'The contest among the Powers today Is for trade, and cotton -I some

fem t quantities outside of the United States and which they could not mants

An analysis of this trade in cotton goods reveals that of our exports

It is a grotesque and almost unbelievable Item In the commerce of this

rBtATERNALISM Involves mutual respect of class for olass, race

one's neighbor, a desire for his prosperity, a regret for misfor-
It involves rejoicing with those who rejoice and weeping
with those who weep. It involves pity for their sorrow, mercy for their er-
rors and their sins. sharing wilt 'hem their misfortunes, bearing for them
their burdens. It Involves helping the lame, the halt and blind, and endeav-
oring to redeem and recover from their wrong-doing the criminal.
Fraternalism Is co-operation, combination, fellowship, uniting with one's
fellows In government, in philanthropy, In industry, in order to promote the
Fraternalism Is the parable of the Faithful ,Steward, the parable of the
Good Samaritan, the parable of the Prodigal Ron-for fraternalism is Illus-
trated in that parable, antithetically, by the spirit of the elder ,brother.
Fraternalism is to do unto others as we would have others do unto us.
It is to love one's neighbor as one's self. It is to give 'with simplicity, to
rule with diligence, to show mercy with cheerfulness, to be Inspired with a
love that Is without false pretense, to be kindly affectionate one to another
with brotherly love, in honor prefer ring one another. It is to be of the same
mind one toward another; to mind not higher things, but to condescend to

Grasses As Soil Builderx..
By R. B. Rushing.
1 tASSIDS are the agents employed by nature to cover bare spots,
o| | protect the lands from the washing of torrential rains, and
from the baking, burning and sterilizing sun, and finally to make
the land fertile. Wherever the natural conditions arc sufficiently fa-
[J vorable to atkmlt of the growth of any green plant, the surface soil
is first covered and protected by grasses. They are the agents
that serve to build up fertile 'beds of loam. They gradually form
turf, and the rotting turf makes humus, which is, from an agricultural stand-
point, the most important and most valuable constituent of the soil.
The presence of humus In a soil is a necessity. The richest soils, those
that can sustain continued cropping the longest without the addition of art-
ficial manures, are always those that are rich in humus.
Solla containing a high percentage of humus will absorb or so.k up more
S water and will hold it longer than soils sufcient in organic matter. It
changes the physical condition and gives that fineness and tilth so characteris-
tic of rich soils. It makes the soil less susceptible to abrupt bcanges of tem-
perature, absorbing aald radiating heat more slowly. Humus takes up nitro-
gen, phosphoric add, potash, lime and other organic plant foods, thus retarding
the loss by leaching. Turf is indirectly a valuable reservoir of nitrogen, and
to cover a Geld with tur-forming srasses is one of the best ways of Increasing
the amount of bumus Ia the soil.

What Music Does For Us.
There is a certain member of Con-
Teas, a lover of music, who had the
misafortune not long ago to encoun-

person of a colleague from a Missouri

tag upon the beauties of Puccini's

tainly possess i die'lnetive decoro*ive
value. In the old days every eslifo

In the poor man's garden abroad
a trained fruit tree finds its greatest
usefulness. No garden is too small
for a few trees. Tho peasant. with
a scant six Inches rr a foot between
r, walk and his neighbor's fence,.
st11l has room to pint a tree and
train it against a Iqttice. While the
necessity for maximum returns from
minimum acres is not a part of our
national point of view, the possibility
'of the training of trees as a hobby
has been very much overlooked.
In Germany you can bay a tree to
measure to fill in any apace on your
garden wall or house. Just as wo
buy a ready made suit of clothes.
While the training of fruit trees has
become popular only within ten
years, the Formobslbaumachulen, o
schools where trees are trained, are
now to be found everywhere in Gscr-
many. There are commercial nura.
erlea where experts in espalir work
are a'nstantly making new forms and
creating new marvels. Certain shapes
have become standard, such as p:ra-
mids, cordonms, palmettos an.l so on.
There are practically no nurseries
in America that have taken up the
*propagation and sale of trained fruit
trees in a serious way. and there ii
almost no American literature on the
subject; consequently one who wish-
ed to take this work up as a hobby
will be forced to look to Germany,
France or England for his inspimtlon
and for #his stock.

Expensive Garmente Worn on State
Much of the splendor of any of hlp
Majesty's courts would be making It
It were not for the dassling uniforms
of the high officers of state and the
great officers of the royal household
who assemble at these Impressive
There are always five or six differ-
ent grades of gentlemen in atton4-
ance present when his Majesty holds
a court, and each has its distinctive
dress, the difference usually being In-
dicated by the trimming, either go!d
or silver, or the number of buttons
worn. The complete outfit of a first
class court official runs up to 200,
the Jacket alone costing 80 to 100.
It Is made of the finest royal blue
cloth lavishly embroidered with gold
lace of a highly elaborate design.
The waistcoat and knee breeches are
made from white kerseymere silk
richly embroidered, set off with but-
tons and buckles of gilt, and white
silk stockings, sword, ocked hat and
white kid gloves make a complete
costume as rich as it is dignified.
An Ambassador or foreign diploma-
tist wears a special distinction-black
velvet collar with a gold embroidered
floral design. The uniform costs the
wearer about 115.
Lord Lieutenants are dressed in a
coat of Poyal red cloth cut swallow-
tall aid adorned wmth silver buttons
and the collar embroidered with sil.-
ver lace. Silver laced trousers are:
worn with a cocked hat without
plumes. The uniform is very hand-!
some and costs the wearer 100 guineast
simply for the privilege to wear it,
let alone the making of it
To the Duke of Norfolk, as the Earl
Marshal. however, faqjls the enviable
distinction of wearing the most cost-
ly apparel of all great officers of
state. The dress Is absolutely unique,
and for sheer magnificence has no
parallel In any country. Nearly throe
miles of the finest gold thread is useIl
in the embroidery on (the coat, collar,
front and on the lappets of the
sleeves. Eaoh suit costs 250.
All Cabinet Ministers and other
high state officltal are expected to
have at leaet one state uniform. A
complete court outfit will cost from
130 to 170.
There are of course many others,
such as the Captain of the Yeomen
of the Guard, the Captain of the Gen.
tlemen at Arms, the 6Master of the
Horse and the squires and pages of
honor, who have to possess a distinc-
tive dress for special occasions, cost-
ing from 20 to 50. Court dandles
will only wear these uniforms once,
wbille noblemen sometimes make the
skme uniform last a lifetime. It has
been computed that on these great
state occasions the value of the uni-
forms worn exceeds 30,000.-From

TH AESTHETIC OYVTERMAN.
Shwked by the Manner In Which
Two Boys Were Opening Oysters.
"You know," said an oysterman

by smashing them.
"The two boys had, I fancy, swiped
these two oysters, one each, from the
baskets standing out in front of some
restaurant, and now they wanted to
eat them, but they had no knife with
which to open them, and they found
no loose stones lying ashout with

Thp chief difference between the
average hotel cell and the average
prison cell, viewed from the stand-
point of social.psychology, is that one
is locked on the Inside to keep out-
siders out, while the other is locked
on the outside to keep !nslders in.
The occupant of the hotel cell Is
afraid that something will be done to
him or that something will be taken
from him by some one who ought to
be In a prison cell. That Is the the-
cry of It.
"Lock your door and leave your
valuables at the office," cautions the
obliging innkeeper. "If you had valu-
ables you wouldn't be here." observes
the witty prison keeper. That is to
say. the question of valuables seems
to enter largely into the matter.
It would be great to have a civlliz*i.
tion which considered valuable only
those things which could not be
stolen, such as mental and moral
equipment, skill and goodfellowship.
Then we could be a little more so-
cliable. We could talk to each other
without buttoning our coats or feeling
for our diamond studs every few
minutes. Then the man who willingly
se.-luded himself in a stuffy hotel cell
could be locked In and made to stay
there, on the ground that something
terrible was the matter with him.-
One thing sure that It is better to
give than to receive-and that's a

THE BEGGAR'S APPEAL.
Old, but Man Who Heard It Respect-
ed Iluslons of Youth.
"Now this," said the town traveller,
"was a revival, a renewal, a renas.
cence, a recrudescence, a reversion, a
return to old ways.
"'You inlht as well look for gold
here as work,' the beggar said. 'I've
been tramping the town for a week
and haven't found it; and I haven't
bad anything to eat and I'm hungry.
I don't ask you to give me any
money, I don't want a cent; but I
want you to take me to a restaurant
and give me something to eat.'
"That's what the 'beggar said yes-
terday. A few years ago, when it
was first invented, this appeal, this
'I don't ask you for any money, but
take me to a restaurant and give me
something to eat. I'm hungry' busl-
ness, commended itself widely to
beggar sand It was widely used ani
with proftable results. It looked rea-
sonable, and many a man gavo tlp a
nickel or a dime to this call rather
than take a chance of overlooking
a man who was really hungry or
rather than spend the time it would
take to go and see him eat.
"There were tales, too, of men
thus approached who doubted sad
who said to the bear, 'Well, come
on, then, and. Ill fix you up,' only
to find themselves left at the restau-
rant door or to find themselves sit*
ting at a table oppose a man who
had to work hard to get food down,
he had already eaten so sakh; ,and
then here was the cap lheaf story
of the man thus sooosted who had
said 'Come on!' and found himself

TORE HIS SKIN OFF IN SHREDS
Itch Wg Was Inteas-Bleep fs Of*
te Impeelble-Cured by Cu-
tieum tia Three Weeks.
"At first an eruption of small pustules
eia..w4aced on my hands. These spread
later to Qther parts of my body, and the
itehing at times was intense, so much so
that I literally tore the skin off in shreds
in seeking relief. The awful itching inter-
fered with my work considerably, and also
kept me awake nights. I tried several doc-
tors and also used a number of different
ointments and lotions but received rae-
tically no benefit. Finally I settled own
to the use of Cuticura Soap, Cuticura Oint-
meat and Cuticura Pills, with the result
that in a few days all itching had ceased
and in about three weeks' time all traces
of my eruption had disappeared. I have
had no trobule of this kind since. H. A.

Ith 'the statistics of former years
*- rleprt for the year 1907-08, shows
S att wonderful increase In acreage
valshue of crop.
e te following data concerning
| .reage and values is taken from the
ba t annual report of the commls-
sioner qf agriculture of Florida, and
Is therefore official:
"The acreage of field crops for
1907-08 does not appear as great as it
W Ot&uld' have, had all the counties re-
ported, although the present acreage
of 1,085,941 Is greater than that of
1906., by 156,144. a substantial In-
crease, It is true, but not What it
should rightfully be.
"The acreage of field crops for
1907-08 shows an increase over that
of 1905 of 6,075 acres, and of 10,194
F: acres over that of 1906; the acreage
S. of 1907-08 being 42,357.
"It will be noticed that although
there is an increase In the acreage
I, 'of field crops, and the tables also
sh' ow an increase in the volume of
products that there Is' a decrease in
thetr -value of $686,069. Hut we do
^ not. hive to look far for the cause;
4t is fonud, of chbures, in. the effect
of' the pailc, so called. suddenly cre-
ated for political reasons in the fall
I of 1907. The necessity for money
aind the failure -'in the "demand for
* arm supplies, forced the farmer,
vegetable and fruit gorwers to accept
less for their products; thus we see
a loss of nearly three-qurters of a
S million dollars on one class of prod-
ucts alone. The greateF portion of
the loss referred to fell upon the
Short staple growers of the state."
In the crop year of 1907-08, the to-
tal acreage in field crops in Florida
f was 1,086,341; vegetable and garden
The' total value of field crops was
$11,860;340; value of vegetable and
Garden crops, $3,928,657; value of

uatlon of faim products $46,371,320.
In 1898 the total value of farm
products was $17,906,060.
