The Musician for August, published by the well
oewn hbose of Ditsoa & Co., Boston l as more
than the usual number of pieces of musie In its
supplement, six vocal sad Ia trnmental pieces be-
Ing gives. In sheet form they wold cost about
,the priW e of a year's subserlptiMa yet each month

there are from four to six pieces given. Techli-
cally devoted to the profession there is a vast
amount of interesting reading of general Interest
to all music lovers. The price, $1.50 per year,
puts it within reach of all who touch the keys of
the piano, while to the teacher it would seem to
be indlspensible.

A have known and met for many years at the
National Editorial Association, Frank P. Holland
of that excellent Texas agriculture weekly Farm
and hanch of Dallas, but it was only recently that
I knew he was publishing a monthly magazine of
purely literary and artistic character, called Hol-
land's Magazine, at $1 per year. The August ie-
sue has reached me and I find its contents equal
to most of the dollar magaslines now in the field
for readers. The fact tnat it is a Southern ven-
ture should commend it to the patronage of the
magazine readers of the Sunny South. A peculiar
feature of the business end is the guarantee of
the reliability of every advertisement appearing
in its columns and if through any appearing in It
a subscriber should be swindled or dishonestly
dealt with, the publishers will make good the fual
amount of the loss, provided they are notified
within 30 days after the transaction occurs and
provided, further, tnat the subscriber shall always
mention Holland's Magazine in writing to adver-
tisers. I do not recall any similar instance of
guarantee by any other journal, monthly, weekly
or daily, and it would seem to be a big contract
taken by Holland's. As a brother N. E. A. mem-
uer wish Frank such measure of success as will
make his venture the welcome guest in a hundred
thousand homes South of Mason and Dixon's line.

As an editor for a fashion magazine, Ralph
Tilton of The Delineator, stands in the front rank,
and A opine there is a woman well versed in fash.
ion's frills and furbelous, in close touch for coon
salvation and advice, as to feminine lingerie "and
sich,' whether of tue peek-a-boo order of other-
wise. And then, the magazine is so early in its
issue for the succeeding month that one wonder
at the aptness of illustrations, suggestions and
the dictum of those who are said to control the
tashions. One hundred and seventy pages 'Af
laustrations of style, colored plates, patterns for
young and old (if their are any women who moy
be ed old), stories and serials and depart.
ments covering the kitchen, the nursery, needle
work, millinery, styles of the month at home or
abroad; all these and other items coming monthly
for only one dollar per annum, should make it wel-
come in a million or two homes In the land. The
difference between the Delineator of to day and
Godey's or Petersons of the days gone by is so
marked that one wonders at the progress made in
the adornment of the "human form divine." But
we accept it as we do all the other signs of devel.
opment shown in this age of progress.

"Bvreybody's" forAtr gtst Is mainly a fiction
number, containing ten short stories, based nl
love, adventures, danger, oxeltement, dog nature,
etc. Besides these Obhas. EdWard Russell in this
month's installment of "Soldiers of the Common
Good," gives a study of Japan's economic fore-
sight, sound statecraft and commercial initiative;
a third article on Bucket Shop Sharks makes a de-
tailed and exhaustive exposure of this class of rob.
bers ana their methods; of course, no number is
complete without something from Mr. Lawson,
who tells us what a muckraker is, so vividly that
the reader will wonder If Th omizas W. is (or was)
one himself. A notable midpwqmer contribution
is George Gibbs's six drawings In color, of "The
Mermaid." These are aro ani tle most effective
and pleasing reproductions of; .he; year. In adait
tion to the stories already deibed, this notable
Issue contains a stirring 1 "11o story" of lov3
and adventure, "The Betrothal of Juanita Casas,"
by William Bulfin; "Whistliag Sandy," a power-
ful picture of a hero in the desert, by Roy Norton;
"A Return," a charming and unusual love story by
Arthur E. McFarlane; and Parker H. Filmore's
delightfully sympathetic child story, "The Lam.
Lady's Pansies," and there are three "Little Sto-
ries of Real Life;" "The Sent Wire," by Mary
Heaton Vorse; "The Fidaler of Thundred Bank,"
by T. Jenkins Hains, and "The Rejected Suitor,"
by Dorothy Canfield.

Just as Watson's Magazine for August reaches
my exchange table, appears the -anouncement in
the daily papers that its publisher and editor an-
nounces that he has become a Democrat; but, as
this department is barred as to political comment,
the tact is simply mentioned as perhaps account-
ing for the twenty-two pages of an editorial ent'
tied "The Cow and the Socalst," an which the
ever entertaining Thomaq deals out some heavy
blows to Socialism as he understads It and to ltd
leaders. The second chapter of "Life and Times
of Andrew Jackson" is given, the paper on the
next constitutional convention is concluded, there
are several partly good bits of fiction and the arti-
cle "What Is Money" printed as an editorial, but
written by Mr. Morgan, editor of the Buss-Saw of
Arkansas, is a very complete epitome on a most
important subject. $1.60 per year, Tom Watson'd
Magazine, New York city.

He sd,4 that many o,f the newspapers in teis
State were deceive4 by people ho were paid to
deceive them, but they had been unable to cor-
rupt or to deceive either one of theitwo newspa-
pen in Peoeacola because the editors of these pa-
pers eould not be corrupted and had not allowed
themselves to be deceived.
Taking up the question of practicability of
draining the Everglades the Governor said that
it was entirely practical and that the abundance
of profiles and maps of the region In possession
of te, Trusties 'convinced them that it was not
only entirely feasible but that it could be done at
a comparatively small cost. Referring to the
rihneass of the land when drained the Governor
said that two head of cattle could be raised on
1 acre of It and that all the sugar used in the Uni-
ted States could be produced in a portion of the
Bverglades so Insignificant In sise that one would
have to ride around all day to find the patch.
He said that the first thing the people of the
Mtate of Florida did was to put on foot the plan
to reclaim the rich lands of the Everglades, pro.
during the original document known as Resolu-
tion No. 1, asking for a survey, passed by the
Legislature which convened the year that the
State was admitted into the Union, to back up his
statement. The very next Legislature, he said,
passed a resolution asking the National Govern-
ment to grant the swamp and overflowed land to
the State so that it might be reclaimed. He then
read the Act of Congress of 1850, known as the
Swamp and Overflowed Lands Act, which granted
to Aranesas and to other States, including Flor-
ida, the swamp and overflowed lands. He next
referred to, sad read in part, the Act of 1855,
pa d by the Legislature of Florida, creating the
Board ofTrustees of the Internal Improvement
Fund and vesting in them irrevocably the title to
the lands, which were to be used, as far as neces-
ary, for, the purposes of drainage and reclama-
tion and the residue to be used for the purpose
of education. "This is the authority," he said,
"under which the Trustees are acting now."
Tne Governor then said that he would antici-
pate somewhat the argument that Mr. Beard
ou l make, because of the quotation made from
a former sp.eeh of Mr. Beard's, and answer in
advance the question Mr. Beard would probably
Walse ai to the granting of too much power to the
TrUasIea. His answer to this argument was that
the dinag law and the proposed Constitutlonal
Amendment would not give the Drainage Commis-
alones say more power than that given to the
Tax Assessors in every county and to every towh
ouna l in the State, and if anything that te pre.
pond eane of power lay with the Tax Assessors
and Town Councils, because they could not only
collect the tax, butuld x they could the assessment
of theland, while the power of the Trustees was
limited to the imposition of a tax not exceeding
0 ants per acre on the lands to be drained.
Directing his attention to the proposed Consti.
tutlonal Amendment the Governor said that If
this amendment were adopted t would settle the
case now In Court, being prosecuted by the syn.
dicated land owners in order to escape the pay-
ment of the drainage tax; tha tthe Trustees did
not easo tas thltax order to carry on their work

As to tho eear that the railroad ompanles who
have legislative giants for ore land than there

when drained, the Governor afat at the dei l o
of the courts wasaso strongly ti favor of the oon-
tention of the Truat.ea f the ntpeds and
other corporations claiu e wohed nee oet
them. In support of tls pof he p out
thte thn otamaae h o tn wer not thle the
sui they had aa the in the Truteeh; tat Judge
Malone had decided on two odeasins in favor of
the Trustees, and the claimants In this case were
compelled to amend their bill; that her* was
now a suit pending In Judge Swaae's court
which was not being pushed. In view of these
facts the Governor gave it as his opInion that the
olelmnntl to the land were afraid of thle asue,
teat tey were dodging It, and that they consid-
e that their only chance for 8ueoeus ws to Im.
Ii the work and defeat the Ocuetional
Amendment and try to elect other Trustees who

would take a different view from the present
ones. He said that he and the present Board
could become popular at once by sending a tele-
ram to the grantees asking them to come to
Tallahassee and get deeds to the land, in which
event he would be heralded by their newspapers
as ..e greatest Governor Florida ever had, but
-that he would not gain popularity at the people's
Mr. Beard's speech, like that of the Governor's,
was divided into two parts:
rlrst-That the railroads woud get the lands
after, the Trustees had drained them.
Second-That the proposed Constitutional
Amendment put too much power in the hands of
the Trustees.
In his opening remarks he announced that he
wou.. not differ with Governor Broward as to
the feasibility and practicability of draining the
Everglades and as to the value of the lands when
drained, but that it was his sincere conviction
-that the railroads would get the lands after they
were drained, and that he was opposed to giving
them the lands and draining them too. He said
that during his whole life, since he reached his
majority, he had been a consistent, insistent and
persistent opponent to corporate greed, and that
he would continue to oppose it; but that he believ-
ed he was Aghting the battle of the people when
he asked the people to vote down the proposed
Constitutional Amendment; that he was opposed
to giving the railroads any more of the people's
property add, that itf this amendment were adopt-
ed, the people of the State would be taxed for the
purpose of draining lands of which the railroads
would be the sole beneficiaries. In support of his
contention that the railroads would get the lands
he quoted three decisions of the United States
Supreme Court to the effect that the acceptance
by the State of the grant by Congress of the
bwamu and Overflowed lands was not a contract,
but a direct gift of the Federal Government; and
that the Legislature was supreme and its grants
were valid. He referred to Governor Broward's
citation of the decision of the United States Su-
preme Court in 1862, known as the Mathis v. Mo-
Gee case, in which the Court held that the accept.
ance by the State of the grants of land by the
United States with conditions attached constitu-
ted a contract, and designated this decision as
obiterr dictum," whica, being translated, he said,
meant that the Judge was gabbling, because there
was no issue involved, uo case to be decided.
"But." he said, "the decisions on which I base
my contention that the railroads will get the
lands are later decisions and are decisions on
eases actually at issue.. They were handed down
by Justice Bradley and Justice Blatchford, who
wrote the unanimous opinion of the court."
The language of thee decisions, Mr. Beard
paid, was so plain that there could be no mistake
about it. Justice Bradl6y said that he once was
of the opinion that the transaction between the
United States and the States in the matter of the
Swamp and Overflowed Land Act did constitute a
contract, but upon more mature reflection he was
of the opinion that it was a direct gift and no
power could review the disposition of the State
by these lands except Congreess, and Congress
could review it only by revoking the grant. Jus
tice Blatehford, he said, held that the grant by
the National Government was a direct gift and
that the conditions attaching, to drain and re-
claim, could be interpreted by the States them-
elves, and that the disposition of the lands by
the States for other purposes could be construed
as the declaration by the States that the lands
were not needed for drainage and reclamation,
in which event the act of the State ino carrying
out Its declaration could not be reviewed. Thero
fore, as It was his opinion, based upon these Su-
preme Court decisions, that the railroads would
get the lands, he was opposed to oarryont on the
work of drainage until the title tothe lands wa
fully decided. He sad that there was no immeg
diat or pressing need of drainage; that the pro

officer received It from the Tax Collectors, and
that even then no maey could be spent except
by the ippropriati of the legislature which re-
quired the warrant of the Qomptroller, another
bonded offer, to Issue befot the funds carried
by the appropriation were disbursed. We have,
he dad, honorable hntlemen at present who are
Trilstees. No one thinks that these men will be-
tray their trust, but we may Upt always be so
fortunate, and under the proposed drainage
amendment it would be posalile for designing
men to get themselves elected and squander the
people's money. He said that the amendment
was loosely drawn; that it Was unwise, undemo-
cratic and not in accord with the spirit of the age
which was to put proper safeguards and restric-
tions on public offers, and for these reasons it
should be voted down.
He said that the Trustees did not have suffi-
cleat data to go upon lan the prooecution of their
drainage plans; that Mr. Keller had estimated
the cost to be ton million dollars, and that the
whole people would be taxed to raise this money,
of which the railroads would get the benefit, and
that when the suite were ended and judgment
made the people would find themselves without
their lands and without their money too.
As to Governor Broward's proposition to sell
land to small parties and drain with the money
derived and to sell the lands thus drained to other
parties, and so on, Mr. Beard maid that that was
entirely impractaoal because the Trustees could
not give a good tue to the land in the face of the
legislative grant which were out for them; and
that if Jim Smith or Bill Jones did buy lands from
the Trustees and go into possession of them that
as soon as the suits were decided the railroads
would eject them, and the State of Florida thus
find itself in the position of taking people's money
for lands which they could not deliver; and he
did not believe there would be many Jim Smiths
or Bill Joneses to buy the land as long as these
suits were pending and undetermined and likely
to vest in the railroads.

Replying to Mr. Beard's argument Governor
Broward said that he was not afraid of the rail-
roads getting the Everglades; that these were
primary times and the Judges who would decide
these questions were elected by the people. As
to the contention of Mr. Beard tuat the railroads
would eject all small purchasers who bought
lands from the Trustees the Governor said that
the purchaser of these lands would get his title
from the Trustees and that that was where the
railroads would have to go for theirs; that it is
written in nearly all of the grants that the Trus-
tees must agree before the t is of any effect;
that all grantees had recoe d the power of the
Trustees to decide as to whether or not the deed
should issue, because they were willing in the
past and ARE WILLING NOW to take whatever
th Trustees will give them. In asking for deeds
from theTrustees the grantees have not raised
the point of priority but have waited patiently
while the Trustees were deeding lands under
grants later than theirs for the Trustees to come
baVk to them and deed them some. It the rail-
roads do not haveto go o to the Trustees for title,
and if they do not have to accept the decision of
the Trustees as to what lands they shall have,
why have not the railroads gotten out a manda-
mus proceeding?
These legislative grants to railroads are for
lands somewhere on the earth, and are for a
given number of acre of the public lands which
tees sell the lands to private parties and give
them a deed, THENB PARTICULAR LANDS will
be disdosed of* and not subject to the grants even
if the courts should hold them to be valid, which,
he said, was the very thing that he believed the
courts would never do
Answering more fully Mr. Beard's contention
that there are no safeguards on the Trustees the
Governor repeated what he had said before about
the Truatee having no more power tha that of
Tax Jsareson and Town Qoqnlla, and added
that every check carfUin L L money had to be
signed by all the Trustees and that it would be a
hard matter to get five men to agree to steal the
samre amount at the same time.
Refeorring to Mr. Beard's figures of ten million
dollars for the cot of the work Governor Brow-
d readl part of the report of J. Kramer to
the canal compa that employed him, in which
he put the ost f oonstructing canals similar and
Identical In maeo tamose proposed by the Tru-
te at twelve hundred dollar per mil He mald
tuat Mr. Kramer was the boess of Mr. Keller
whom Mr. Beard quoted for his ton million dollar
In closing the Governor said that the damage
to crops cased by overflow last Deembeor, was
enough to cover the coat of the etire drainage
plan, which would make oerlow IamiMe.

Shaking the Old Plum Tree

Friends of Attorney General William H. Bllis
are wondering Just about now if this is the sua.
plolous time to launch his gubernatorial boom.
They are mindful of the fate which overtakes
plants and flowers which bloom prematurely, and
although they are very much impressed with the
necessity for getting their candidate before the
people for consideration by them as early as poe-
slble they hesitate to make a formal announce
ment for him at present. But as it is the duty of
political "dope" writers to grind out about so
much of it, every now and then, I will take the
liberty of saying that Florida's present Attorney
General will have to be reckoned with by several
early birds who have already launch4e their
booms for Governor. Attorney General Eills is
young and has always been poessqed of that deo.

could serve the people for the people's good. If
thli can be cooitrued as political ambition Gen.

a ine opportunity to test his popularity two years
ago, when he made the race for his present poal
tion in the primaries, against Alred ft. Clar-
Abrams, and the auspicious reeut of this es"ay
can by no means be considered as a check on any
political desires the Attorney General may have.
Judge Bllis, as he Is ,ometlmees sealed, has an-
other spur In case his spirit ahoeld Ahow sines of
Sagglin, that should be quite NdWenst to eaue
him to enter the race with determination to win.

can also be written down.
Happy Is the political writer to whose lot it
falls to record a bran new thinly in the political
cards, so, happy am I, for I am able to write down
the fact that John Beard will be a candidate for
United States Senator to succeed senator Mallory
when the primary campaign open up about if-.
teen months from now. Mr. Beard is Demorat
nominee for State Senator from the Second Flor-
ida District, will be duly elected and will take his
seat on the Idea of April. He has a bill up his, or, rather, I should may heo)A figured out
a bill, because he hasn't yet drawn It, which he
believes will be almost unanimously passed, and
when passed will achieve for him so much fame
as to erve a a campaign cry for United State
Senator, and a winning cry at that. It is not peu
mitted that I should tell what this bill ls. It was

Florida's New Fuel
Written for THB SUN by Robert Reason, St
Augustine, Florida.
For the past two or three years some uneasi-
nes has been felt on account of the growing
scarcity of fuel. The ubiquitous iglhtwood knot
of our youth has about disappeared, while the
sawmill refuse is so eagerly bought up by stem
using plates as to make the fuel problem In our
towns an villages a serious one. More and more
oal has been Imported from Northern and Wae-
tern iee till we have become entirely depen-
dant on thee sources for all railroad and manu-
factulng eUtterprises of any considerable *sle.
Just as the last llghtwood knot is disappearing
from our ken, we are Introduced to a vast store
bouse of combustible material which a compea-
sating providence has been keeping In readiness
for our needs.
We are not asked to dig thousands of feet In
the bowels of the earth, or mine it at the expense
of hundreds of human lives and employ great pow-
er to raie't to to t surface, but we find it geom*
ly rtpolg la sIales and bogs, or In lakes and
rivers waiting for the dredge or steam shovel to
coverO ity cldevtors, to comparatlvely i'abple
machines In which It is converted into compact
form for all use Ia which tel s needed.
My attention was first seriously attracted to
this posamle fum supply in December 187, whila
xamining the so called muook lands lying between
Lake Worth and Miami. The following year par-
tle In Canada brought out a machine for eam*
presig peat Into a very compact form and aftWe

to the notice of the officials of varioem ralrads

ertaina people who, for ton or fifteen yea ft

matches were invited, and quite oovaon yet,
preferred to chip the skin off their knuckles by
using a flint and steel every time they wanted a
fire. I think I muat have been dealing with the
direct descendants of these people. As time and
means allowed I continued to search for suppplte

and found it alonq the Atantio Coast as far as
Wilmington, N. C.- Reports from nMarly all the
Northern States show a wonderful awakening to
the value of peat a a fuel and I have reports

Our tist pictorially presented our idea, 1nd we believe that this
magnet matt be gotten In working order too -A Thr the good of the State.

We E rtOrn a ,auck Raker.
We are glad to welcome to this State Mr. Richard Barry, special repre-
sentative of ubnlure's Magauine, who announces that his mission is to find
out the trUth about white men being held in bondage in this State.
We think the minleon of Mr. Barry is a good one and as he is a courteous
entaftan we extend to him in full measure that hospitality for which the
South is deserveay famous, both on account of himself and his mission.
To get at the truth about all conditions In this State is the particular
pecialty of this journal, so that we have a third reason for extending a wel-
come to Mr. Barry.
This gentleman spent three days of this week in Tallahassee and gave to
us some ox the facts which he had gathered in his two weeks' investigation
In diftrest bpart of the State.
We are not at liberty to use these facts because they were gathered by
the representative of another publication and were discussed with us In a
professional way, which precludes us from making any mention of them in
advance of their publication in McClure's Magazine.
It was not necessary for Mr. Barry to tell us, however, that white men
have beeo held In bondage in this State by their employers and in several
eases have been grossly ll used.
This is a great evil and brings A JUST AND WELL MERITED RE.
We know that the State authorities have been endeavoring for some
time past to get Information about this breach of the laws so as to punish
those who are guilty of these outrages.
.The flies In the Executive offloe show that the Governor wrote to the
peace ofloers of the counties In which the scenes of the outrages were laid,
Up to this time no prosecutions have been commenced in the State courts,
but we are quite certain that prosecutions WILL COMMENCE it the stories
which ave been printed In the Northern newspapers are true.
What strikes U forcibly about this visit of McClure's representative is,
the freny that the people of the North are thrown into whenever the word
slavery or bondage is mentioned in connection with the South.
Ever since that New England woman, Mrs. Stowe, wrote that outrag-
eously overdrawn story of the horrors of Southern slavery, known an "Uncle
Tom's Cabin," the people who live In the North have been so based on this
question that they are utterly unable to view it with calm judgment
It has BEOM THE FASHION for the Northern people TO GET
FRANTIC over any mention of Southern slavery.
Admitting that the stories printed in the Nortnern papers about the abuse
of a few sapnslees white men whose own admission showed them to be un-
worthy to be ranked with American bahood, in that they submitted to abuse
and ill treatment without reeenting It are all true. Admitting that there are
a few Isolated cames of A VERY BAD FORM OF SLAVERY in Florida, we
are struck with the unneeeary trouble undertaken and the distance traveled
by the representative of McClure' Magazine to get a slave story, when slav.
In the South or whica COUULD EXIST In the South, can be found within ten
minutes walk of the place where MeClure's Magazlne is edited in New York
When we asked Mr. Barry: "How about the slavery on Grand Street
In New York," he confessed that h did not know where Grand Street was,
and the slavery that exists on Grand Street In New York City is a form of
the evil compared to which the slavery that exists in Florida Is liberty itself.
We asked Mr. Barry why he didn't write about the slavery in Jefferon
Market Court, where friendless women are ground to body and soul destruoS
tion between the policemen who arrest them and the saloo keeper prte
alonal bondsman, who keep them from golag to jail in order that they may

The editor of McClure's uMagaine attempts to remove the met& that is In
our eye, and completely ignores the beam that is in his ow.
Tom Appleyard seems to be terribly agitated about the legality of the

ise not to do so. Leigh fell into an-
other dumber lasting longer than the
first one. When he awoke e hsat for
a.oe time turning things over In his
mind. Through the drunken haseI
came memories of a fracas; there had
been a scream, and then something '
hit him. His hand felt the bruise on
hia fase-who did It? Who? Who?
W wuas he herewith that brakeman
sit"ng opposite? All at once there
came the memory of a young man
with dark hair and complexion and
two steely gray eyes. He was the
man that had humniatea him. Twice
that aay had he reduced him to senso-
leness. It wasn't a time for fists;
sometning stronger must be used. He
renscued in his pocket and out came

he had never been beaten; he was
always the bully. Everyone in that
train was afraid of him, except CMe-
ney. Apparently the brakeman was
watching him, had been put there by
the conductor for that purpose; but
when that man remonstrated Leign
felled him with a blow. Drawing his
revolver, he started beak. .

ta. In those days the view of the in-
terior of a Pullman was not obstruct-
ed from each end as now. The gentl-
men's smoking room was in the rear,
and the ladles' room, a small cubby
hole, at the forward end.
Leigh could see the entire car, an4
whisky had utterly dethroned hise rea-
son. All he wanted was to kill Che-
ney, to avenge the blow that hal
caused the big lump on his chin. Ho
hadn't any more sense than a mad
dog. Not waiting to open the door,
he commenced firing through the
glus window at the top. At the flret
shot everyone in the sleeper got down
behind seats, and the women scream-
ed, that is, those that didn't faint.
Cheney heard the shot and crash of
glas. He had full command of his
faculties the minute ie opened his
eyes, and knew the "bad man" was
again on the war path. He grabbed
hil revolver, Jumped up and saw out-
lined behind the glass in the door the
blear-eyed Leigh wildly firing his gun.
There was no whisky in Cheney'a
veins to disarrange his aim. The
train was lurching from side to side
as he fired, once, twice, and then the
face of Leigh disappeared. "Thin
might be a rue," thought Cheney, "to
enable him to reload his six-shooter."
He seled the bell rope and brought
the train to a standstill The oonduo-
tot came back and found Leigh on the
freat platform of the Magenta with a
bullet wound through the fleshy part
of his pistol arm. It was more pali-

to drop his revolver. He was help-

Lelgh was taken up in the bai&gace

gone, so was his revolver; that made
him,tame, and he was not ah object

conductor wire a complaint to the
chief of police In New Orleans, asking
him to hy a detail meet the train

"Mr. Galiatin, are you armed, sir?"
"Why no, not now. Why?" asked
"Fred Leigh has been in here and
made some ugly threat against you.
I don't want any man murdered in

"Thank you," said Cheney, with his
inevitable smile. 'll get my own

That afternoon while Oheney was
in his room a card was brought to

"Show him up," was the terse or-

Cheney was standing in the middle
of the room, his right hand resting
carelessly in his coat pocket But
at the same time he he was grasping his
revolver, and when Judge Emery
came in he was covered. Cheney
was ready for any emergency.
The judge was a typical Southerner,
and occupied a place on the city
bench. He was not long in maklag

"You are Mr. Galatin, I presume,

have friends in time, and then the
friends would talk about it.
They must not give up what was
right for a little money-tf they did.
the money would never do them any
good, they could depend upon that.
And Elsblets would call upon Dedo
Antanas to support her; there was a
fear In the souls of these two, lest this
-Journey to a new country might som.-
how undermine the old home virtues
of their children. The very first Sun-
day they had all been taken to mass;
and poor as they were, Elsblets ha,I
felt it advisable to Invest a little of
her resources in a representation of

Though it was only a foot high, there

and shepherds and wise men bowlnUl
down before him. It had cost ffty
cents; but Elsbleta had a feeling that
money spent for such things was not
to be counted too closely, It would
come bank in hidden ways. The piece
was beautiful on the parlor mantel,
and one could not have a home with.
out some sort of ornament.
The cost of the wedding feast
would, of course be returned to them;
but the problem was to raise it even

negborhood so short a time that
they could not get much credit, and
there was no one except 8Sedvtls
from whom they could borrow even a
little. Evening after evening Jurgls

manage it decently for less than two

Since the publication of my article on "Cotton
Raised From Trees," published on page 7 of Au.
gust 4th issue of THE SUN, I fina the following
paragraph in a recent bulletin from the Depart.
ment of Commerce and Labor:
"Herbert J. Webber, chief of the Plant Breed-
ing Laboratory in the Agricultural Department,
is quoted by the Washington Post as ridiculing
the cotton tree in India, concerning which Mr. J.
R. Spenoe, a well-known Englishman, recently
wrote to the London Commercial Intelligence, a
part of whose letter was reprinted in Dally Con.
sular and Trade Reports. Mr. Webber aid:
S 'For seven or eight years the Department has
been making experiments with cotton trees, and
none of them has amounted to anything. The
trees will not stand the severe climate in this
country and always trese. I have seen them
grow as high as this room, but never have they
put forth a Lngle boll. We have tried hybrids.
Ia these foreign trees with our native plants,
thinking that in this way we might secure a plant
that did not require so long a time to rch the
blooming age, but all of the efforts have been
uaavallng. It takes two years to bring a cotton
plant to the period when it will bear and several
more to make It a paying investment. Coon.

quently, a tree from a tropical country stands no
chance here. The only successful result that has
attended our endeavors along this line of breeding
Is to have increased the length of the plant's sta-
ple. Our agent in India has secured some of the
seed from this new tree of Spence's, and we shall
make experiments with them. I am not at all
optimistic of the outcome.'
"Mr. Spence did not claim to have discovered
something new, but rather to have availed himself
of something long known but not cultivated to any
extent. This so-called "tree," Mr. Spenace said,
grows to the height of from 4 to 5j feet."
I remember that about four years ago a Ten.
nessee Cotton Gin Co. sent out broadcast through
the South, packages of seed from Persian tree
cotton, said to have been grown on trees about 15
feet high, two crops a year, replanted every seven
years. I do not recall seeing any printed state-
ment of results elsewhere, but I was fortunate
enough to receive three or four packages of seed
and planted a few on my experimental grounds at
Pabor Lake. The seed germinated in good shape,
and a bush (for it scarcely deserved the name of
tree) grew about six feet highland yielded a little
cotton. The tallest bush was grown inside my
pinery sheds, but other bushes grew fairly well in
the open, but will not be sure that they went
safely through the severe weather of two winters
ago. The busu inside the pinery did. Not feel.
