Gainesville Wins the Fight.
Palatka ball players and rooters
have probably gone to Gainesville
to play ball for the last time.
The Palatka boys and and several
hundred rooters went to Gainesville
on a special train last Thursday.
The game of ball up to the 9th in-
ning was a shuti-put on both sides.
In the first half of the 9th Palatka
got two runs. Gainetville then got
busy to win or get the game. The
decisions ot the umpire, a Onines-
ville man, were such as to guarantee
the desired result beyond a possible
doubt. Palatka's pitcher could
throw nothing but balls, according
to the umpire's eagle eye, until the
bases were filled, and measly singles
resulted fn three runs and the game
for the umpire's team. So punk and
unfair were the decisions that a
hired player on the Gainesville team
protested the raw deal that was be-
ing given Palatka, and in conse-
quence became involved in a lively
scrap with one of his own team
mates. But the limit is yet to come.
When the game (?) was over sev-
eral Palatka people walked out upon
the diamond, and not getting off
when commanded to do so, a general
mixup ensued, in which the Gaines-
'villk bunch, by reason of over-
Swhelming numbers, came off with
"Show 'em the way to play ball" Is
Galnesville's slogan, and this is the
way they show 'em. This Is (Games-
ville's entertainment f frriendtr with-
in her gates-her treatment of a ball
team which has played with nearly
every team in Florida without a
row or "quit" except-the "Show
'em the way to play ball" crowd.

In an Irish garrison town a theat-
rioal company was giving perform-
ances, and some soldiers from the
local barracks were engaged to act a
supers. Their duties included the
waging of a fierce fight In which, af-
ter a stirring struggle, one army was
defeated on a given signal from the
prompter. For a few nights all went
well, but on the Friday evening a
special performance of the piece was
to be given under the patronage of
the Colonel and other officers of the
garrison. The two armies met as
usual at the end of the second act,
when they foughtand fought and kept
on fighting, regardless of the agon-
ised glare in the eye of their (actor)
general, who hoarsely ordered the
proper army to "Retreat, confound
you!" But the fight still went on,
and soon the horrified manager saw
the wrong army being driven slowly
off the stage, still fighting desperate-
ly. Down came the curtain amid
roars of laughter, and the fuming
manager hastened to ask the delin-
quents why they had failed to retreat
on hearing the signal.
"Retraite," roared a burly fusilier,
whose visage had been badly bat-
tered, "and is It retralte ye'd have us,

BUILT OF SAND AND CLAY
Clay is Feuad Amuene IIBaket in Flat
SWoeds-Chef Esutive Wa
Tallahassee, Fla.-In an interview
with Governor Gilchrlut, a piece of
Information valuable to roadmakers
was gained. This information the
governor received from 8. II. Owens,
road commissioner in charge of the
public roads near Columbia, 8. C., at
which place the governor stopped
over to -ee his mother.
The roads near Columbia, built of
sand and clay, for the most part, run
through sandy stretches of land cov-
ered with growths of "blackjack."I
The Pand is several feet deep, and'
there sla no evidence of clay any-
where about, except to those who
know how to look for it. The gov-
ernor was astonished to learn that
the clay, used so abundantly through-
out all that section in roadbuilding,
was found here and there in pockets,
whose location is betrayed by the
presence of a few round-leaved black-
Jacks, and angular-leaved variety.
There Is also growing in the soil
above these pockets a little, running
briar, having dark green leaves.
The governor is convinced that
similar pockets of clay exist through-
i out the sandy, blackjack sections of
Florida can be utilized in making
good, hard roads.
la making the roads above mention-
ed, the commissioner told the govern-
or that only a road machine was used.
SBy moans of this machine the sand
was arched in the center, and upon
It about six Inches of clay was laid.
Ovr the clay more sand was spread,
:theo amount varying according to the
ua1utlty of sand already contained
Itaih clay. After the roads had been
for a time, the road machnlae

The foal year eRodtg June .M
has bees ompited andI forwarded to
the engineer's depart for Its ac-
tion at Washingtoun. The report Is
an able document, voluminous, and
covers details of the work. commerce,
finance and other valuable tatustles
of the port of Jacksonville. There ft a
complete review of the ntire work,
which has been done on the rivers
Is now under way and which Is con-
templated and which In needed. All
work, between Jacksonville and the
sea, is minutely covered In a most
comprehensive manner, and the re-
port altogether will have a most Im-
portant bearing on future Improve-
It shows that under existing proj-
ects of Improvements, appropriations
In the amount of $2,655,130.26 have
been made since June 8, 1896, which
Includes the present available funds.
-There appears many details of the
present harbor work which Is under
way, the raising of the jetties at the
mouth of the river, nature as to the
formation of the bottom of the river,
and suggestions as to the best meth-
od of .keeping it in condition after Im-
provements are made.
In reference to the twenty-five foot
and thirty foot channel from the city
to the sea, the report states that the
Increased lengh and draft of vessels
now entering the port, indicated that
the widening is needed at several
bends in the channel, notably at the
upper end of Fulton and Browns
creek and at the New Berlin bend.
The increased size and speed of com-
blned passenger and freight steamers
plying the river has caused a consid
erable washing of banks at several
places, and indicates the necessity of
bank reventment at these points, and
of increasing height of some sections
of the training walls.
This is all very Important, but the
commercial part of the report, con-
taining statistics of the wonderful
growth of the port, hand in hand with
increased water depth from the city
to the sea, is far reaching, and will
have great influence on the future
action of the government In the bet-
terment of harbor conditions.
MUST Sill FEIfA g OF ALCO L
Many Liquor Dealers Have Failed to
Comply with State Law.
Tallahassee, Fla.-The Florida pure
food law which went into effect Sep-
tember 1, 1907, provides that all bev-
erages of whatever nature, containing
any percentage of alcoholic spirits,
must have the exact amount printed
conspicuously upon the label of the
bottle. While some of the local liquor
dealers, particularly those who sell
beverages bottled in the city or state,
have complied with the law, a great
majority of them have not.
oIn this connection, Colonel A. P.
Jordan, the state inspector, who is
now in Jacksonville, says that he is
finding a considerable quantity of li-
quor which is not labeled in require-
ment with the pure food law, which
tact renders all such liquors liable to
be seised and sold by the sheriff, and
the proceeds derived therefrom, turn-
ed Into the state treasury.
"The state law," says Col. Jordan,
"has been operative for nearly two
years, and there is absolutely no ex-
ecUe why local dealers have not con-
pled with its provision." He states
that If all the liquor in Jacksonville,
which is not rly lab w
selsed and sold It would entaIl an
immense los.O t the dealers. They
have been warned, repeatedly, but so
far have failed to hoed the warn.

Remarkable Slaughter by a Plucky
Inverness, Fla.-Mrs. C. B. Brooks,
who lives on N. M. Ruff's place on
Gospel Island, in Citrus county, had
an exciting experience last week,
which doubtless she will not care to
have repeated at any time in the nears
future. According to the Inverness
Chronicle, she had just finished dress-'
lug her baby, and put the child on.the
ground in the yard and resumed her
household duties. When she ap-
proached the child a few minutes la-
ter, she discovered a monster moc-
casin snake crawling toward it. With
wonderful presence of mind and re-I
markable nerve she seized an axe
lying nearby, and with one stroke sev-
ered the reptile's head from its body,
when thirty-eight snakes about six
inches long, emerged from the inside
of the mother snake, and they, too,
lie in the low, marshy bottoms of
the Potomac, the breeding ground of
malaria germs. These germs cause
chills, fever and ague, biliousness,
Jaundice, lasltude, weakness and gen-
eral debility and bring suffering or
death to thousands yearly. But Bloc-

and cure malaria troubles. "They

Th Greeks, Romans, Egyptians,

tion of high culture form only ap.
parent exception to the rule that the
CvllUsation of a people is proper-
tUoal to Its consumption of soap, for,
although these nations used little
sOWp nl the strict sense of the word,
.hey empplooed several other sub-
stance of shmilar properties.
Two of these cleansing agents are
mentioned nla the Bible. "borith" In
Jeremiah 1 i, , and (Malachl 111, 2 and
"nether" in the same passage of Jere-
miah and nl several of the Proverbs
of Solomon. In the English Bible
these Hebrew words are translated
by "oap" land "niter."
Borith was an alkali obtained from
the athes of plants, in other words,
crude potash. The nether of the Bible
was probably the native sodium car.
bonate, or natron, the nitrum of the
Romans, which sl found in Egypt,
around the Caspian Sea, and In oth-
er desert regions and which Is still
collected for laundry use in Egypt.
"Alkali," the Arabian equivalent of
nether, appears also to have been Im-
pure soda for, although it was ob-
tained from the ashes of a plant, this
plant was probably the samphire or
saltwort (Salicornia) which, like
many other seashore plants, contains
soda but not potash.
The ancients also used as a cleans-
lag agent the mucilaginous sap of cer-
tain plants, probably species of
Another ancient detergent was p1i-
trid urine, which owes its cleansing ;
properties to the ammonia which it
contains. At the commencement of
the Christian era the Roman laundry-
men (fullones) possessed the privi-
lege of maintaining public urinals In
the streets, and, two centuries later,
their business was so lucrative that
It was subjected to a special tax. In
Roman laundries the garments were
tfrst washed with lye and then laid
la. shallow earthen vessels, sprinkled
with urine and trodden with the feet.
They were afterward rinsed in water
and exposed to the air to remove the
odor of urine. The laundries were
so offensive that they were placed
outside of the city or in outlying quar-
ters. Putrid urine is still used in
washing in many parts of the world.
Soap made by combining grease and
alkali appears to have been first men-
tioned by Pliny in the first century.
It Is described, not as a detergent,
but as a pomade employed by the
Gauls to give the hair a fine gloss
and a reddish tint. Both hard and
soft soap were made from goat's fat
and beech ashes. The soap must also
Save contained coloring matter, but
this Is not mentioned. The Romans
adopted from the Gauls the use of
soap, and employed it extensively on
the hair. Pliny says that the Gauls
invented soap, but it is more prob-I
able that they adopted it from the
Genmans, who, In turn, may have ob-
tained the knowledge of It from the
The use of soap In washing is first
mentioned, nla the second century, by
Gales, who adds, however, that the
Romans used various earths in wash-
ibag the face. Probably soap remained
an artilel of luxury, employed as a

DAHLIA PLANTING SEASON.
Present Day Types Brought to Ex.
eollence by Culture.
In 1784 Vincent Cervantes, director
of the botanical garden In the City
of Mexico, sent to Cavanilles, the di-
rector of the Madrid botanical gar-
den, a plant unknown to botanists. It
was a tall. spindly affair, with nod*.
ding little flowers, each of which had
I a yellow central disk surrounded by
five or six red or orange petals. Ca-
vanilles called It dahlia. In honor of
the recently deceased Swedish botan-
ist, Dahl. But when the plant came
to Germany, where the name dahlia
had already been given to another
plant, the botanist Wildenow confer-
red upon the newcomer the name
Georgina, by which name It has been
universally known In Germany until
within recent years. This name was
given In honor, not of George III of
England, as has been commponly as-
sumed, but of a Russian explorer
named Georg'. Dahllas were great
rarities in Eurepe until lHumboldt
and Bonpland brought back a quan-
tity of seed on 'heir return from Mex.
Botanists and gardeners Bsoon,
noticed the extraordinary facility with
which the co'or of the flowers could
be varied, and their interest increas-
ed when tho first double dahlia was
produced in 1808. Then arose a keen
rivalry in the production of new va-
rieties of form and color among the
English and German florists. Prizes
armountins to hundreds of dollars,
were offered for the finest ne-w sorts.
In Germany as recently as the sev-
enties three or four dollars was some-
times paid for one flower.
The English florist took the lead l
the development of the dahlia until
about 1835, after which they were
hard pressed by the Germans. In
1836 one of the latter exhibited 200
varieties, mostly of his own produc-
tion. Alexander Von Humboldt, who
had watched the dahlia's triumphal
progress with keen Interest, was as-
tounded by the effect of cultivation on
the one-time modest field flower of
The florists' lists of thirty years
ago contained about 2,000 varieties
of dahlias, and the whole number of
varieties produced up to the present
time is between 5,000 and 6,000 These
are not all in existence, however, as
many even of the most celebrated
soon die out. Today the different
types of dahlias have reached a higher
degree of perfection than ever be-
fore, and the present-day dahlias are

An expedition dispatched by A.
Lawrence Rotch, of the United States,
and a Prench expert. Telsserenc de
Bort, last summer tried to make
soundings of the atmosphere over the
Atlantic near the equator at a con.
siderable height. Though some of the
balloons sent up by this party rose
nearly ten miles, they failed to reach
the isothermall lawyer," where the )old
would not Increase. Their theor-
mometers contlo'ed to register lower
temperatures the higher. they rose.
Mr. Rotch was confident that the iso-
thermal layer really existed, but sus-
pected that it was at A greater eleva-
tion than was reached by the instru-
ments. It now appears that a Ger-
man expedition sent out to East Africa
by Dr. Assmann found that at a level
considerably above that to which bal-
loons went over the Atlantic not only
was almost unprecedented cold found,
but above it there was a con'paratlv'e-
ly warm stratum. This was discot-
ered last I)ecemhber over Lake Vic-
toria, near the equartor. The change
from intense cold to moderate tem-
peratures was observed twice-once
at an elevation of 5G,060 feet above
(about eleven miles) and once at 65,-
000 feet (barely thirteen miles).
Especially remarkable, says Dr.
Assmann, is the great average de-
crease of temperature with altitude
found over Lake Victoria; the lowest
temperature encountered at 65,000 feet
was 119 below zero, Fahrenheit, with
a tenrmperature at the ground (3,800
feet above sea level) of 79 above zero,
a difference of almost 200 degrees!
The variability of the temperature at
high levels is enormous in equatorial
as well as in higher latitudes. Two
ascents gave readings at &6,000 feet
of 105 below zero, respectively.
In addition to the ascents of sound-
ing balloons a number of small pilot
balloons were sent up to great alti-
tudes to explore the direction and
velootty of the upper air currents, and
these showed the presence of an up-
qpermost current of air blowing near-
ly from due west, and flowing above
the regular easterly current of the
equatorial region. A similar discovery
w'is made somne timni ago at Cairo,
Egypt, .by B13. F. E. Keeling.
The ascents over Iake Victoria
were made from a low powered
launch, and would have yielded better
results had a faster boat been avail- |
able. It is stated that with a vessel I
having a speed of some twelve miles
an hour this lake is the best place
in the world for sounding balloon as-
Dramatic Humor In China.
At most towns we have caned at
theatricals formed one of the sflghts.
The din and discord of the band at-
tracted us more than once even If
the play had no 'fascination. It mat-
ters little or not at all to a foreigner
what the plot is all about, as this
drags on for two or three days, some-
times longer. We witnessed a scream-
Ing act which was evidently the pun-
ishment Inflicted on the villains of the
drama. Three men in almost a state
of nudity were being soused with
buckets of water and making many
grimaces as the cold douche was
dashed in the!r faces. Judging by
the frantic shouts of the audience this
"altuablon" was evidently the height
of dramuAic humor, and as we stroll-
ed away the poor villains were still

Ironworkers to watch, and to keep

When A rivet reaches the required

bellows with the tongs. He draws
his arm back as far a. he can and
with an underhand slink sends the
redhot rivet forward. The man with
the keg watches the rivet and has
the keg placed In such a position that
the rivet flies into it and hits the
bottom with a bang. Then he re-
moves the rivet with tongs and
passes it to a waiting ironworker.
The most spectacular feature of all
is to see a linger send one of the
redhot rivets up through the building,
from one floor below to another. This
requires special accuracy because
the man with the keg above can
only move a certain distance to either
side. In most cases ho is sitting

practice the men who do the slinging
are so accurate that they never waste

CONCERNING FISH EGGS.
Simple Means by Which the Hatching
of Them May Be Expedited.
The Aquarium received lately from
the United -States Fisheries Bureau 5,.
000,000 white perch eggs-the eggs of
this species are very small-which
have been placed in hatching Jars In
the Aquarlurmfs model fish hatchery.
The period of Incubation of fish
eggs depends largely on the temper-
atute of the water In which t*y
are spawned or placed. Whitefish
eggs in water of a temperature of 58
degrees would hatch out In about three
days; in water of a temperature of
53 degrees, that being about the pres-
ent temperature of the Croton water
as it flows into the Aquaium's tanks,
whiteflsh eggs require #for hatching a
period of from fifteen to twenty days.
The sustoptibility of fish eggs to
temperature makes it possible to do
things with them that could not be
done otherwise. .If in such a hatch-
ery as the Aquarium, for instance,
with its limited apace, It should be
desirable to expedite the hatching of
a bath of eggs to make room in Jars
or troughs for other eggs. this can
be done by the simt)le expedient of
raising the temperature of the water.
When the eggs are In the hatch-
ery water is all the time kept run-
ning into the Jars or troughs and run-
ning off, in constant circulation, to
give the eggs aeration; but this cir-
culation can be suspended for a com-
paratively btrlef time without Injury.
By shutting off the inflow aof new
water the temperature of the stand-
ing water in wh'ch the eggs would
then remain would be in an hour or
two perceptibly raised by the warmth
of the surrounding air into the building;
and by the increase of warmth in the
water the hatching of th, eggs would
be accelerated. When little fishes are
about ready to come out a hatching
that might have extended through a
week can by this means be complet-
ed In a day.-New York Sun.

MORALITY OF THE STAGE.
It is the women today who make
the success of the Individual theatre
and the individual play. If any
doubt as to that exists Ina any one's
mind, witness the attendance of these
very theaters when Immoral plays
are running. Out of six such In New

one-third to one-half of women. And

hearts or friends, it stands to reason
that the men would accept the dic-
tate of the woman as to what play
she would wish to see.
We repeat what Mr. Charles Burn-
ham, president of the Association of
Theatre Managers, says, "No play can
exist that is not patronized by worn

TO IMPROVE YOUR ('ARRIAGK.
Every woman can possess a sup-
ple, agile body under perfect control.
The first essential is to learn to
stand properly, with the head erect
and the shoulders flat, not pressed
backward. To acquire this, balance
an object on the head, in Imitation
of the peasant woman, and stand
against a solid wall, the heels, trunk
and back of the head touching it.
When you feel that you are "in po-
sitlo," step forward, retaining the
object (It may be anything-a small
pillow or a weislt) upon the head.
Now relse the heels slowly, press-

Mrs. Cal Remy, a thrifty houewife
of this place, recently had an experl-
ence with some poultry which wMA
unusual, to may the leat. One of her
hens hatched a brood of chickens, all
of which were white but one.
The hen attempted to kill the one
black chicken and was prevented
from doing so only by Mrs. Remy
transferring the black chick to anoth-
er hen. This hen, however, also had
a brood of white checks, and she too
objected to the black chick to the ex-
tent that she tried to kill it.
Finally, Mrs. Remy took the de-
spised black chicken, more *'ead than
alive, and placed it In a cage with a
Here the chick was not molested,
but was permitted to peep to its
heart's content. The peeping, how-
ever, finally got on the nerves of the
canary and now he has ceased to sing
and makes no noise save that of peep-
Ing, in imitation of his cage mate.--
