Of all classes of men, these who tol-
low the sea are probably the most
pione to superstion. Afloat upon
the black waste of waters, at the mer-
cy of wind and eas, with vast depths
and strange features below them, a
belief in the supernatural Is easier
than ashore, under the cheerful gas
lamps. Strange stories of the sea are
plentiful,, and an Incident which hap-
pened within my own Oxperionco has
made me somewhat chary of dubbing
a man fool or ooward because he has
encountered something ho cannot ex.
plain. There are stories of the super-
natural with prosaic sequels; there
are others to which the sequel has
never been published.
I was fifteen yoars old at the time,
and as my father, who had a strong
objection to the sea, would not ap-
prentice me to it, I shipped before the
mast on a sturdy little brig called
the Endeavour, bound for Riga. She
was a small craft, but the skipper was
as fine a seaman as one could wish
for, and. In fair weather, au easy man
to sail undor. Most boys have a rough
time of It when they first go to sea,
but, with a strong once of what was
good for me, I had attached myself to
a brawny, good-natured Infant, named
Bill Smith, and it was soon under-
stood that whoever hit me struck Bill
by proxy. Not that the crew were
particularly brutal, but a sound cuf-
fing occasionally is, held by most seas-
men to be beneficial to a lad's health
and moials. The only really spiteful
fellow among them was a man named
Jem Dadd. He was a morose, sallow.
looking man, of about forty, with a
strong taste for the supernatural, and
a stronger taste still for frightening
his fellows with it I have seen Bill
almost afraid to go on deck of a night
for his trick at the wheel, after a few
of his reminiscences. Rats Were a
favorite topic with him, and he would
never allow one to be killed if he
could help it, for he qlaimed for them
that they were the souls of drowned
sailors, hence their love of ships and
their habit of leaving them when they
became unsesworthy. He was a firm
believer In the transmigration of souls'
some idea of which he had, no doubt,
picked up In Bastern ports, and gave
his shivering auditors to understand
that his arrangements for his own Im-n
mediate future were already per-

Two Practical Men Who Saw Its Possibilities Twenty-
five Years Apart and Said the Same Things About Them
When Hantlal, 3O vanrs before
Christ. saw the Alps standing between
his army-and the fteA plains and spoil
laa cities of Italy, he did the se-m
Ingly Impossible thing, led his army
When Napoleon, another-man who
could iee thioa, saw In his turn. 1900
years later, the same Alps separating
H111 half starved, poorly clad army
from the spoil laden cities of the same
Italy, HB performed the seemingly
Impossible feat of crossing the Alps,
even In the dead of winter.
Given two men with the capacity to
grasp what lies before them and
place them in position to see the same
thing, and they are DEAD SURE TO
BAY THB SAME THING about It and
to undertake the SAME MEANS to
accomplish the SAME OBJECT.
James M. Kreamer, engineer and
man of iffaire, who had the good for-
tune to hold the friendship and the
confidence of capitalists, chief among
whom was Hamilton Disston, made an
investigation of the Evergladea coun-
try, grasped the possibilities of devel-
opment, and in a pamphlet bearing
date-June 8, 1881, addressed to the
Atlantic and Gulf Coast Canal and
Okeechobee Land Co., of florida, cap.
ital $10,000,000, said:
"Taking Into consideration the
great quantity and quality of lands
that are to sacrue to this company by
providing an outlet to Lake Okeecho-
bee-the ownership and exclusive con.
trol of a line of Inland steam naviga-
tion for 800 miles-the large land
grant attaching to the canal-the Di-
rectors confdently recommend the
present Issue of shares and accom-
panying land certificates as possess-
ing not only a safe and sure invest-
ment, but offering probabilities of
greater returns in the future than
any 'enterprise that has been brought
before the public for years."
Napoleon B. Broward, Governor of
Florida, by virtue of being able to see
point as to net only overflow
banks, but to cause the waters of
rivers to be backed up, so that
country becomes submerged until

waters find the ocean and gulf
through the tortuous and inefficient
channels of widely separated streams.
It is proposed to provide against
these periodical overflows by the
opening of canals from Okeechobee
to the St. Lucie (on the Atlantic) and
Caloosahatchee (mo the gulf) Rivers
that will not onlt, PERMANENTLY
LOWER THE LEVEL OF THE
LAKE, but at all times furish a safe
outlet to the gulf and ocean for the
waters of the lake and confluent
streams. * The vast terri-.
tory included in and south of the
Halpatiokee Flats Is described as pos.
sessing remarkable productive pow-
ers and is PARTICULARLY ADAPT-
ED TO THE CULTIVATION OF SU.
GAR CANE, which may be considered
as a measure of the fertility of the
fertility of the soil, as it is grown
without rotation, and one of the most
exhaustive crops known.
"The choice sugar lands of Lou-
isiana are rated at from $100 to $150
per acre, similar in character to those
Just described, which mature the cane
to perfection, and are located below
the frost line.
"The terms of the contract with the
Board of Internal Improvement of the
State of Florida give to this company
one-half of all the land reclaimed by
the lowering of the waters of Lake
Broward, after Investigating by per-
sonal inspection on two different oc.
"Lake Okeechobee is 21 feet above
tide water. Fed by the streams which
are swollen by the rains, this lake at
different 'periods overflows its banks
and spills the water contained In it
over an area approximating 8,000,000
acres. By cutting canals from Lake
Okeechobee to the sea the waters of
Lake Okeechobee can be lowered so
that these periodical overflows will
not take place and these eight mil-
lions of acres cam, by a system of
cross ditches leading Into the main
drainage canals, he reclaimed for cul.
tivatioi. The lands are similar in
character to the Louisiana cane lands
and are peculiarly adapted to the rais-
ing of sugar cane."
Kreamer said in 1881: "Lake Okee.
chobee can be lowered by cutting a
caeal to the St Lucie River."
Broward, in 190., said: "Okeecho.
bee can be lowered by cutting a se-
ries of canals, one to the St. Lucle
River, one to New River, and others
to the South."'
Kreamer, in 1881, said: "The Im-
port duties on sugar for manufactur-
ing purposes from the year 1847 to
1879 varied from 2 3-4 to 4 cents per
pound. We paid out for sugar and
allied products, during -this period,
$1,800,000,000. Our western mines-
produced $1,700,000,000, or in other
words, during a period of 32 years, as
a nation, we paid out in round num-
bers $100,000,000 IN EXCESS OF
THE TOTAL OUTPUT IN BULLION
OF OUR FAMED BONANZAS OF
THE WEST, FOR AN ARTICLE OF
CONSUMPTION EVERY POUND OF
WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN PRO-
DUCED FROM THE SOIL OF
Broward said in 1895:
"Then let us look at the agricul-
tural reports of the United States.
What do they show? They show that
we consume in the United States
2,767,162 tons of sugar per annum.
The statistics show that the total
amount of sugar produced in the Uni-
ted States from domestic molasses is
15,000 tons; sugar cane, 232,649 tons;
maple, 12,000 tons; beet, 170,185 tons;
making a grand total of 521,095 tons.
Imported sugar. 2,246,068 tons.
Domestic sugar, valued
at $.03 1-2 per pound.$ 86,476,640.00
Imported sugar, valued
at $.03 1-2 per pound. 157,224,760.00
"Imported sugar more than equals
all of the following exports, which
last year amounted to:
Wheat ...... .........$ 47,446,921.00
Wheat flour. .......... 3,905,579.00
Naval stores. .......... 18,106,641.00
Beef. .... .......... 34,858,857.00
Total. .... ..........$144,494,154.00
"This is $12,730,606 less than the
value of sugar brought in from foreign
countries. The same papers will say,
'But what about it? We know that
statement is true.' Every one that
knows anything about sugar cane
knows that South Florida is the home
of the sugar came in the United
States. A half million acres of the
Florida Everglades will produce cane
enough to supply the entire amount
of sugar imported here from foreign
countries, athout being in a ompetil-
tion with any other cane growers In
Florida, or In fact in competition with
any other cane growers In the United
States, until we had produced mere
than the total amount imported, which
amount exceeds by more than twelve
million dollars the amount now re.
ceived by the citizens of every State
In the Union, for exports of corn,
flour, wheat beef, and naval stores.
and, as Is understood by sugar ex-
perts and others who have investigat-
ed sugar cane growing and manufac-
turing, to be able to economically pro.
duce sugar, the cane must be near
enough to the mllt, so that It can be
placed In cars by machinery, run into
the mill on one side as cane. and go
out at the other side as granulated
sugar, and the supply of cane must
be great enough to furnish not less
than three hundred tons per day. In
the, Everglades we have millions of

bilities of the development of this
great area; went over, in 1905, the
same ground that James M. Kreamer

aig In the field. Broward received
his training solely in the school of
practice. Both of these men had
minds developed su0oiently to be
able to grasp the situation presented
to their eyes. Kroamer said, in 1881,
nl the pamphlet above referred to:
'Lake Okeechobee, situate about
the centre of this 8,000,000-acre tract,
is upwards pf 40, miles nl length by 16
miles in width, or covering an area of
over 1,000 square miles. It has no
outlet, but receives the drainage of a
number of lakes intercepted by the
Kissimmee River, also the waters of
Fish Eating, Taylor's and Mosquito
Creeks, which vary from 10 to 160
feet in width. During very heavy
falls of rain this lake rises to such a
rorld, and millions of acres suitable
or cane, where it can be grown in
olid bodies to meet the requirements
or sugar manufacturing. To clear
nd make fit for. cultivation a hali
million acres In any other part of the,
united States, would require from
fteen to thirty million dollars."
To show that Mr. James m.i.
Creamer, engineer and man of ai-
airs, who saw the possibilities of the
;verglades country" and who descrit,-
ed them in almost the identical word.
sred by Gov. Broward, was not an im-
practicable dreamer, and in order to
shut off criticism which might be rais-
id, and to satisfy all questioners who
would come at this proposition with
he questions, "How do we know that
these things could be done as Krearn-
>r said? Why should we accept his
statements?" A little more from tli,
pamphlet issued by Kreamer in 18IS
is quoted. Mr Kreamer said.

waters, lying adjacent to and general-
ly parallel" with the east coast of
That canal, at this writing, HAS
BEEN DUG, with the exception of a
nine-mile strip from thq head of the
North River to Pablo Creek. The
only thing Ito. the way of realizing
Kreamer's prediction, made a quarter
cf a century ago, IS THE DIGGING
OF THAT NINB-MILE STRIP OF
CANAL,-AND THIH DREDGING OF
PABLO CREEK. This shows that J.
M. Kreamer. was not a dreamer and if
a prediction made by him twenty-five
years ago has been so nearly fulfilled,
it is reasonable to suppose that Mr.
Kreamer's Judgment was equally
sound on the matter of Everglades
Gov. Broward now goes a little
further than did Col. Kreamer twenty-
five years ago. In explaining the plan
for canals for Everglades drainage he
shows that these canals will open up
the whole of the southern peninsula
of Florida to water transportation to
the north all the way to Jacksonville.
The St. Lucie cut will connect Lake
Okeechobee with the canal along the
East Coast. Steamboats NOW PLY
through the drainage canal connect-
lang Lake Okeechobee with Lake
Hickpochee. and from Lake Hickpo-
chee to the head of the Caloosahat-
ehee River and down the Caloosahat-
chee to the gulf. This system of ca-
nals is built 1 the St. Lucie cut pro-
posed by the present Trustees, and a
similar out connecting North River
with Pablo Creek will connect ALL
OF THE WEST COAST OF FLORI-
DA WITH ALL OF THE EAST
COAST OF FLORIDA, and will bring
about water transportation across the
State and up and down almost its en-
tire coast line. It will not be many
months now before the feasibility of
the dralnagep blan proposed by the
Trustees will be tested. The dredge
"everglade" floated up New River the
early part of this week, and com-
menced eating Its way across the 23
miles of mud which separates New
River from Lake Okeechobee. The
work has beun and all that the
critics will have to do will be to
posses their souls nto patience for
they will soon see th.e actual accom-
plishment of the thing which they
pronounce a wild dream.

farmer in Florida felt himself unable
to take more than one monthly maga-
zine, in addition to THE SUN and his
county papers, that magazine should
be Watson's Magazine, nlow running
in its fourth volume. This, for sev-
eral reasons; while claiming some
merit as to the character of the lit-
erary matters priAted In its cnlumns,
It is the one monthly having a clearly
defined and excellent editorial depart.
ment and nothing comes from the
able pen of Tom Watson but is read-
able, clear and resonant In tone and,
as a rule, devoted to the Interests of
the greater mass of the people, those
who Inhabit the rural districts, who
earn their living by honest labor in
the fields and factories of the South.
Take, for instance, his editorial on
the Tobacco Trust, In the June issue.
The growers in Georgia and Tennes-
see, at least; If not those In Florida,
as well, will appreciate the work Mr.
Watson and others have done in the
last year or two, to secure for them
equitable rates for their produce.
Other editorials might be mentioned,
but this will suffic for the present.
One hundred and twenty-four pages
of reading, aside from the editorials
are given; some are good stories, but
such topic as the "Abuse of the
Homestead Law," "Phases of the
Liquor Question," "The Common
Roads," show the general character
of the magazine. Ten pages of let-
ters from the people show how close
he Is In touch with them: The News
Record keeps those who do not take a
daily paper well up In what has hap-
pened the preceding month. So it
would seem as though Watson's Mag-
azine. as the monthly for the people,
should be patronized by the people.

What People Ought to

far and wide by their saliva and spu-

sufferer from lung tuberculosis
sneezes in your presence he may cut
short your life unless you take pre-
cautions at once.
But there are numerous cases
where the family and servants of suf-
ferers from tuberculosis of the throat
and lungs escape the menace, though
living In its midst for years. Reason:

cleanliness and well-to-do enough to

be better to rest on the bare floow

of love. In the excitement of this
masterpiece Tamossfus Kusslelka be-
gins to edge in between the tables,
making his way toward the head,
where sits the bride. There is not a
foot of space between the chairs of
the guests, and Tamossius is so short
that he pokes them with his bow
whenever he reaches over for the low
notes; but still he presses in, and in-
slets relentlessly that his companions
must follow. During their progress,
needless to say, the sounds of the
'cello are pretty well extinguished;
but at last the three are at the head,
and Tamosszus takes his station at
the right hand of the bride and begins
to pour out his soul in melting strains.
Little Ona is too excited to eat.
Once in a while she tastes a little
something, when Cousin Marija
pinches her elbow and reminds her;
but for the most part she sits gazidg
with the same fearful eyes of wonder.
Teta Elzbieta is all in a flutter, like
a humming-bird; her sisters, tco, keep
running up behind her, whispering,
breathless. But Ona seems scarcely
to hear them-the music keeps call-
ing, and the far-off look comes back,
and she sits with her hands pressed
together over her heart. Then the
tears begin to come into her eyes;
and as she is ashamed to wipe them
away, and ashamed to let them run
down her cheeks, she turns and
shakes her head a little, and then
flushes red when she sees that Jurgis
is watching her. When in the end
Tamoszlus Kuszlieks has reached her
side, and is waving has magic wand
above her. Ona's cheeks are scarlet,
and she looks as if she would have to
get un and run away.
In this crisis, however, she is saved
by Marija Berczynskas, whom the
muses suddenly visit. Marija is fond
of a song, a song ot lovers' parting;
she wishes to hear it, and, as the
musicians do not know it, she has
risen, and is proceeding to teach
them. Marija is short, but powerful
in build. She works in a canning
factory, and all day long she handles
cans of beef that weigh fourteen
pounds. She has a broad Slav!c face,
with prominent red cheeks. When
she opens her mouth, it is tragical,
but you cannot help thinking of a
horse. She wears a blue flannel shirt
waist, which is now rolled up at the
sleeves, disclosing her brawny arms;
she has a carving fork in her hand,
with which she pounds on the table
to mark the time. As she roars her
song, in a voice of which it is enough
to say that it leaves no portion of the
room vacant, the three musicians fol-
low her, laboriously and note by note,
but averaging coe note behbed; thus
they toll through stanza after stanza
of a love-sick swain's lamentation:
'"Sudiev' kvietkeli, tu branglausis;
Sudlev' ir laime, man Btednam,
Matau-paskyre telp Aukssczslausis.
Jog vargt ant avieto relk vienam!" '
When the song is over. It is time
for the speech, and old Dede Antanas
rises to his feet. Gradfather An-
thony. Jurgis's father, Is not more
than sixty years of age, but you
would think that he was eighty. He
has been only six months in America,
and the change has not done him
good. In his manhood he worked in a
cotton mill, but then a coughing spell
came unot him. and he had to leave:;
out in the country his trouble disap-
peared, but he has been working in
the pickle-roms at Durham's. and the
breathing of the oo'd damp air all day
has brought It back. Now as he rises
he is seized with a coughing fit. and
holds himself by his chair aid turns
away his wan and battered face until
Generally it is .the custom for the
speech at a veselija to be taken out
of one of the books and learned by
heart; but in his youthful days Dede
Antanas used to be a scholar, and
really make uo all the love-letters of
his friends. Now it Is understood
that he has composed an original
seewh of contratulation and benedic-
ticn. and this is one 6f the events of
the day. Even the boys, who are
romping at out the room, draw near
and listen, and some of the women
sob and wipe their aprons In their
eyes. It is vary solemn, for Antanas
Rudkus has become possessed of the
idea that he has not much longer to
stay with his children. His speech
leaves them all so tearful that one of
the guests, Jokubas 8sedvilas, who
keeps a delicatessen store on Halsted
Street, and is fat and hearty, is moved
to rise and say that things may not
be as bad as that, and then to go on
and make a little speech of his own,
in which he showers congratulations
and prophecies of happiness upon the
b:.'de and groom, proceeding to partic.
ulars which greatly delight the young
men,, but which cause Ona to blush
more furiously than ever. Jokubus
possesses what his wife complacently
describes as "poetisksk valdlntuve"-
a poetical imagination.
Now a good many of the guests
have finished, and, since there is no
pretence of ceremony, the banquet
begins to break up. Someof the men
gather about the bar; some wander
about, laughing and singing; here and
there will be a little group, chanting
merrily, and in sublime difference
to the others and to the orchestra as
well. Everybody Js more or less rest.
less-one wculd guess that something
is on their minds. And so it proves.
The last tardy diners are scarcely
given time to finish, before the tables
and the debris ari shoved into the
corner, and the chairs and the babies
piled out of the wa), and the real eel.
ebration of the evening begins. Then
Tamoassus Kusslelka, after replenish.
ing himself with a pot of beer, re.
turnq to his platform, and, standing
up, reviews the scene; he tape au-
thoritatively upon the side of his
violin, then tucks It carefully under
his chis, then waves his bow in an
elaborate flourish, sand finally mites
the sounding strings and close his
eyes, and floats away nla spirit upon
the wings of a dreamy walt.
