SWe take Issue with the CryAtal
River News on its suggestion to the
county commissioners to invite a
government expert to this county to
to demonstrate the government's
plan or idea of road building and re-
spectfully advise our esteemed con-
temporary that this would put a
black eye on hard road building in
this county. We favor the sugges-
tion to have the roads properly laid
out, profiles made, and also that the
work of construction should be done
under the supervision of a competent
engineer, but we do not want a
government expert and our reasons
for this is the fact that several of the
Florida counties have had a half
'mile of road constructed hinder
government supervision and the ex-
pense was enormous. The govern-
plan was adopted at Gainesville sev-
eral years ago and we have reliable
information that the half mile of
road built there cost upward of $8,000.
-Inverness Chronicle.
The Crystal River News is dead
right. (Jet the governmentt expert by
all means. The Inverness Chronicle
is minlstaken in the cost of the half
mile built at Uainesville. The (yov-
ernnent mian's business is road build-
Ing and they do it all over. The
government mian the Putnam County
Bond Trustees have at work near
Palatka now building a sample
stretch of road, for all we have the
best County engineer and road ex-
perts from near by counties, has
shown them all more about building
the Sand Clay road in the past mouth
than they over knew before.
Mr. Baslow has built roads In sev-
eral of the Southern States, and de-
pending on labor and distance in
gWtng the material, he says the
eoot per mile has varied from $0 to
about JlM,&0. He bhas eompletd

Brastus White Drops Dead.
Erastus E. White, aged 82, of 4602
Twelfth avenue north heat, was found
dead yesterday on his ranch at
Vashon Island. He had gone onto
the island and had been working In
the garden when he was strieken
with heart failure. He leaves a cOIl,
Henry Kirk White of Owesso, Mich.,
and a daughter, Mrs. Wililam Bhel-
ton, of this city. He had been a
resident of Seattle for three yeasm
and formerly lived at Natick, M .

Mr. White ba speneit q ae.

We have Just received fr6m the
Florida Chair Factory at Jackson-
vile a copy of their new summer
catalog in which isa illustrated some
very attractive things in porch
chairs. The cover of this catalog ia
decidedly different from anything
we have seen before and is very at-
tractive, as well as the prices men-
tioned on the chairs illustrated.
This factory hIas established a
very large trade throughout the
South and that their goods are satis-
factory is proven by sie hundreds of
complimentary letters they receive.
This new catalog will be sent to
any address upon receipt of a postal
card card. Every person who ex-
pects to buy a hair of any kind this
year should be sure and send for it.

Shell hal been ordered and the
work of connecting the East End
shell road and the new road to
Dunn's Creek with the shell road on
St. Johns Avenue will be pushed
ahead. These two roads to be built
are something over onenmile long.

Tallahasseer Fla--The conference
for education in Florida, under whose
auspices has been carried on a vigor-
oue educational campaign .during the
past several months, is now onceen-
trating the results 6f Its work into a
general organization of women, hav-
Ing many local branches throughout
the. state. These school improve-
ment associations will carry on ano
perfect this work by establishing lit-
erary sociletles, and school libraries,
and by beautifying school grounds.
It will also be their endeavor along
all lines to make the "school the cen-
ter of gravity of community life," ac-
cofding to the fundamental thesis of
the conference. They will co-operate
with the teachers in awakening tht
children to a keener sense of privi-
lege, a higher ambition and a real
love for their work. They will use
every device to make this work pre-
sent to the child a pleasant and al-
luring aspect, well worth the effort
necessary to be extended in its ac-
colnplishment. They will endeavor to
arouse in the parents and guardians
of these children a greater sense of
obligation and responsibility, not only
to' their own offspring and charges,
Wut to those little ones of more un
fortunate environment.

Baby Sleepless With Awful itching.
"When our baby was seven weeks
old he broke out with what we
thought was heat, but which gradual-
ly grew worse. We called in a doctor.
, He said it was eczema and from that
time we doctored six months with
three of the best doctors in Atchison
but he only got worse. His face, head
and hands were a solid 'sore. There
was no end to the suffering for him.
We had to tie his little hands to keep
him from scratching. He never knew
what it was to sleep well from the
time he took the disease until he was
cured. He kept us awake all hours
of the night and his health wasn't
what you would call good. We tried
everything but the right thing.
"Finally I got a set of the Cuticura
Remedies and I am pleased to say
we did not use all of them until he
was cured. We have waited a year
and a half to see if it would return
but it never has and to-day his skin
is clear and fair as It possibly could
be. I hope Cuticura may save some
one else's little ones suffering and
also their pocket-books. John Lesson,

An officer of the mounted police ti
not an exponent of the law; he is the
law itself, says Agnes Deans Ceameron
in the Century. When he rides his
cayuse to-foothill camp or threads on
snowshoes the worn north trails of
the trapper he goes clad with the
authority of courts. lie preserves or
der, but he also makes arrests; he
tries offenders in his own courts, and
then escorts the man upon whom
sentence has fallen to a prison of
his own making, where the law-
breakers may be incarcerated for ten
days or thirty years.
1iack of that light, silent, steel-
nerved rider is the strong arm of
England and the whole of Canadian

It is as one with authority. In ex-
treme cases, when the death penalty
has to be enforced, one mounted
policeman may hna e to art as clergy-

tal evasion, equivocation or secret
reservation. So help me, God"" With

that tempts a man to become an em-

ice, poor her payment."

With a better understanding of the transient nature of the many physi-
cal ills which vanish before proper efforts-gentle efforts-pleasant
efforts-rightly directed. There is comfort In the knowledge that so many
forms of illness are not due to any actual disease. but simply to a consti-
pated condiCion of the system. which the pleasant family laxative. Syrup
of Figs and Elixir of Senna, promptly removes. That is why It is the only
remedy with millions of families, and is everywhere esteemed so highly
by all who value good health. Its beneficial effects are due to the
fact that it is the only remedy which promotes internal cleanliness,
without debilitating the organs on which it acts. It is. therefore. al-rnm-
portant, in order to get its beneficial effects, to purchase and note tbet
you have the genuine article, which is manufactured by the California
Fig Syrup Co. only.
It is pleasant and refreshing to the taste, and acts gently yet promptly
on the kidneys, liver and bowels, cleanses the system effectually, dispels
colds, headaches and fevers and assists in overcoming habitual constipa-
tion permanently, also biliousness and the many ills resulting therefrom.
The great trouble with all other purgatives and aperients is not that they
fail to act when a single dose is taken, but that they act too violently and
invariably tend to produce a habit of body requiring constantly augmented
doles. Children enjoy the pleasant taste and gentle action of Syrup of
Figs and Elixir of Senna, the ladies find it delightful and beneficial
whenever a laxative remedy is needed, and business men pronounce it
invaluable, as it may be taken without interfering with business and does
not gripe nor nauseate. When buying note the name. California Fig
Syrup Co. printed on the front of every package. Price. 60 cents a bottle.

The greatest advantage that the
Overland has lies a l ts matchless
simplielty. Every part is so simple,
so automatic that the car is almost
"trouble proof." This model operates
by pedals alone; one toot pedal push-
es back for reverse, the same pedal
pushes up for low speed and another
pedal simply pushes up for high
speed. A 10-year-old ahild can aae-
ter the car In Ave minutes. A nov.

for Itself. The simplicity and Its low
cost of up kepe appeal to both experts
and amateurs. A woman 'can op
rate it as easily as driving a horse.
This year, through reduced cost of
production, we are offering this car
for $1,000. It Is a better car thaa

Decline and Fall of the

S"High hat," -silk htit," "stove-

slang call, it. "hult reflets"--what-
ever the cr'.rect namen may be, the
thing itself is unmistakable and
unique. There Is nothing else In art
-and still less, assuredly, is there
anything in nature-that is in the
least like what its adversaries regard
as the abomination of civilization,
the hat which Is still the regulation
headgear of a gentleman upon all
ceremonial occasions in every coun-
try In (Chrlstendom. Upon all cere-
monial occa~lons, but not on others;

politics. but of personal comfort ant
of protest against what Is regarded
as Idle, expensive and unnecessary
pomp and circumstance. That Is em
Inently characteristic of an age whici
frequently forgets to 'be dignified, but
never forgets to be comfortable. To
'be sure, there was a brief, and rath

binatlon of ease with dignity when

Now, in this attitude of public opin-
ion toward the tall hat, we have a
distinct example of the tendency of
history to repeat Itself. The modern
silk hat is the successor of the orig-
inal beaver, which beaver was the
hallmarks of the gentleman-or, at
all events, of the man who consider*
ed himself a gentleman, who meant
to be so considered, and who could
afford to pay (or owe) his hatter the
price of sucg consideration. A beaver
used to cost a couple of guineas, and
any mere member of the common
herd who should have sported a beav-
er in the early years of her late Ma-
Jesty's reign would have given rise
to the same sort of protest which the
civilian Josh Sedley's military mus-
tache elicited from Capt. Rawdon
CraWley. Like Tennyson's "grand
ole name of gentleman," the high hat
has lost something of its pristine dig.
nity by "ignoble use" on the heads
of the many; but it has now recov-
ered no slight measure of its social
importance. And, with a greatness

The Moral indlan.
We are so accustomed to think of
the law-abiding Indians as abjeotly
dependent upon the bounty of Uncle
8am, and as deprived of their Initla
tive by a paternalistic government,
that it is somewhat surprising to be
told of the earnest assistance they
have lately given to the endeavor of
the officials resident upon Indian
reservations to extirpate gambling
and reduce the consumption of ardent
spirits-the besetting sins of the red
man, partlkxlarly when be Is not giv-
en enough to do.
It has been reported to the aslsis
sat Indian commlssloaer that seven
hundred Navajo Inadians recently
brought to the "white .father," their
superintendent, -a reat collection of
gambling paraphernalia of all sorts,
of their own volition ourrenderolg

strength dominated her even while
she resented his attitude. She had
opened her lips to utter a sharp re-
buke, but Bretton's words carried a
conviction which was filling her with
a steady, overwhelming dread, and
when she spoke it was in a low, re-
pressed tone.
"I will go with you to Cl&yville,"

eyes shot forth a steady, strengthen-
ing candor.
"What can I do?" she asked at

She thought for a moment, then
her face settled Into new, determined

Rat Clube In Indiana.
Secretary Wilson of the Depart-
ment of Agriculture will be rejoiced
to hear that the farmers of Warwick
County, Ind., are forming rat clubs.
The anti-rat movement is in line with
a suggestion made by the Secretary
some months ago. The scientists
and statisticians of the department
have been figuring on the damage
caused by rats. They have discov-
ered that a good deal of the surplus
products of this country which should
go to the enhancement of general
prosperity is being eaten by rats.
The Warwick County farmers are
organizing rat clubs in every county.
They say every township is overrun
by the pests. They purpose to make
it unhealthy for rats in Warwick
County from this time forward. They
are polishing up their trusty shotgun
and accumulating a large stock of
well seasoned hickory sticks. Armed
with these reliable weapons and well
supplied -with dogs, they are to meet
In forces of from fifty to one hun-
dred where rats are most numerous.

The notion that women teachers
and girl schoolmates weaken a boy's
character and vigor and manliness is
based on an entirely superficial and
erroneous idea as to the outward in-
dlcastons of those qualities, submits
the New York Presse. The fact that
a boy is polite, well bred, does not
swear like a trooper-in short, is not
a confounded nuisance to every
grown-up tf his immediate neighbor-
hood-is no argument against his
manliness. A man is never more
manly than when his heart has been
captured by a woman. There is just
as much reason for believing that as-
sociation with sweethearts and wives
is disastrous to iianlinoss as that
feminine companionship and control

women of America are fast fill-
the ranks of our fanciers and
keepers, and it Is only a ques-
So time when women will be just
el satively engaged In poultry keep-
UgS as men. The raising of poultry
an a business that is peculiarly adapt-
4 to women; thqir hereditary edu-
cation has fitted them for It and to be
the best of caretakers. In the ris-
, lag of poultry, the strictest attention
to the minute details of the business
Is necessary to the attainment of any
great degree of success, and here is
where women easily excel men. A
woman will go out in the rain and get
soaking wet in order to see If the
chicks are dry, while a man -will stay
In the house until the rain is over
*and let the chicks take care of them-
selves during the rain.
Then again, women are naturally
mpore gentle in disposition than men.
and since gentleness is very conduct-
ive to good results with poultry, wom-
on are better fitted to look after the
fowls. If the fowls get to "scrapping."
a woman will gently part them before
they have injured themselves or per-
haps trampled upon and injured a
number of little chicks, while a man
a ill stand by and watch the "fun"
go off., and he will let them fight It
out if It takes all summer and kills
or iajure a lot of his little chicks.
J Mt then, it is just as well that be

Sand one branch will pay better In one

eggs for market. with carcasses as

eggs, as adjuncts; c, fancy stock, with
a few market eggs and carcasses as
adjuncts- will, each and every one,

profit to every one if managed proper-
, ly. Of course, the branch that best
fits a person's own individual make-up
and conditions is the one that will
pay that person the best profit all
. other things being equal.

As an exclusive business poultry
raising offers excellent inducements
to ambitious beginners. According
to the amounts invested there Is no
other business which is nearly so prof-
Itable as the poultry business, and
there is no other business that can
be started on so small a capital, which
pays such handsome profits; and

Few persons would think of entering
Into a business or mere tile pursuit
without a air knowledge of the princi-

persons attempt the poultry business
under supponition that "anybody can

We anYv feed anything the a
4 hours, then commerce by giving
them new milk. After feedlna milk
a day we add moistened broad
crmnbs, and clabber cheese mixed
with sand; sand is also kept on the
floor of their houses and runs.
We let them out of the house the
third day and commence giving them
water and add corn meal, bran and a
very little beef scrap to their feed,
and feed in 'this way two weeks.
Always give ducks a wet feed, and
never feed cora meal alone, as it will
kill them.
After they are two weeks old wo
give them plenty of green food, such
as cabbage and lettuce. It is a good
idea to sow a small patch of rape
for them. This bulky food rushes
their growth and reduces the feed
Plenty of fresh water must be pro-
vided them, but they must not get
very wet when young; later on it will
not hurt them. It Is not necessary
to have a stream of water to raise
ducks; If you allow young ducks to
-wash and swim all they want to you
will lose them.
We feed five times a day for the
first two 'weeks; until the fifth week
four times and from then throe times
each day. We feed coarse meal, add-
ing more bran and beef scraps, never
forgetting water and plenty of green
food. Continue this system of teed-
Ing and management and you will

Meat is highly nttrogenous, and
supplies the hen with elements that
are lacking in grain. Lean meat,
such as waste scraps from the butch-
er, liver. etc., will cost but little, com-
pared with the increased number of
eggs that may be secured. When
only grain is allowed the ensqhey
will be unable to convert it into eggs
unless -balanced by a food of a more
nitrogenous character. Although
the price of meat Is apparently high,
yet one egg more a week from each
hen will be sufficient to pay for the
luxury afforded them.-National

"ALter a delberate aim our hunter
fed," says Mr. CObb, "If I may use
seeh a word for the little puff, searee-
ly heard by us, and entirely unaudible
above the rustling corn leaves at the
distance of the dear. The animal
gave a slight start as it felt the
prick of the arrow on its flank and
turned partly around, sniffing the
air for a scent, and looking about as
it searching for the insect that had
bitten or stung it. Detecting noth-
ing, it stood still and unalarmed. At
the end of a minute, or a minute and
a half at most, its head dropped a
little, as if It was sleepy.
"When the hunter saw this he
arose and stepped out In plain sight.
The deer turned his head and look-
ed at him, and moved forward, not
away from him, a few steps and stop
ped. It showed no fear, @ut simply
curiosity. After another minute the
professor pad I arose, and all three
walked quietly to within reach of it.
It made no movement to run away,
but watched us latently, and shifted
Its position a little. Its movements
seemed perfectly easy and natural.
Absence of fear was the only ob-
servable bange, until at the end of
three minutes more; then It lay
down, not fallag, but as naturally as
a cow or sheep when ready for sleep.
"We alS approached its side, and
the hunter laid a hand on Its shoul-
der. It looked up at him, but showed
ao rese tment or fear. Eves Its
braatblng smed easy sad natural,
