Congressman Sparkman, on his recent
visit to Tamps, was greeted by a large
assemblage of his admiring friends and
fellow citizens, with "music by the
band." Now itis in order for Congrese-
man Davis' Palatka friends to give him
a fitting demonstration of their regard
on his return to abide among them.
1 Referring to the Florida hand-book
recently prepared by Chief Clerk Elliot
for the Agricultural Department, the
Jacksonville TimetJnion says: "In
the absence of a State bureau of Immi-
gratlon, no pains should be spared to
put such immigration machinery as we
possess in good working order; and,
whatever else the next Legislature
may do, It should certainly see to it
that the widest publicity possible is
given Commissioner McLin's admira-
ble hand-book.
The recently discovered instance of a
reversion to paganism by a native-born
African who had been brought to Amer-
ica In Infancy, carefully reared and
highly educated by white church people,
and sent to his native land as a mission-
ary, should not operate as a discourage.
iment to the race In this country. The
case of this man, the victim of that sys-
tern of forcing which so delights many
excellent people in the North who are
utterly Ignorant of the characteristics
of the negro race, cannot be identified
with the experiences of the millions in
the South who, with the aid of the white
people, are making haste slowly in the
acquisition of learning and substance.
The following from the New York
Press, a Republican newspaper, may
serve as an Indication of Republican
sentiment on the Bwayne case: "By its
verdlctas a court of impeachment the
United States Senate gives Judge
S Swayne a bill of health as clean as the
United States Senate can give. Several
members of the tribunal that acquitted
him have been Indicted for far worse
than the worst charged against the
judge. In view of the general suspi-
clon that perhaps many of Judge
Swayne's Judges ought themselves to
be degraded and banished from public
life, the verdict acquitting him will have
little weight with the country. It is as
.i If an offer accused of conduct unbe-
coming a gentleman shouldd receive a
vindication from a court composed of
green goods and gold-brick operators."
An exchange thus wittily paraphrases
Shakespeare's "seven ages of man" as
applied to the average career of the
newspaper man: "The stork disappears
and we look Into the cradle and behold
a male child. After running the gaunt-
let of measles, mumps and chicken-pox,
he enters school. At the age of 10 he
is a red-headed, freckle-faced boy and
the terror of the neighborhood. At 12
he is an apprentice In a printing office.
At 18 he has acquired two cases of long
primer and an army press and is the ed.
S tor of a country newspaper. At 20 he
S is married. At 80 he ls bald-headed,
stoop-ehouldered, and the father of a

A Isi a n mry e of th
Mci-i~lfuy md ameraely.de
pi leadh hretests of th
political boss-that unsavory aad pm
titerous species of ladMvidM l w hich
become a prominent fatureof the mud"
em political environment of many Amer
lean governments, Federal, Stte and
manicipal. This particular boes, having
enjoyed a long and g aeeaful lease ol
local power in one of the Iargest citie
of the Union, bad a mind to retire and
live on "easy street" and the results of
his consecutive manipulation of the p-o
Mtiesl kingdom which he had governed,
and had imparted to his secretary the
name of the fortunate follower whom
he had chosen as his successor.
The secretary, Impressed with the pos-
sibility of losing his job, hastened to be-
tray his chief to a fellow officeholder
with whom he was intimate, and the
two proceeded to "put up a Job" on the
"old man," by cunningly prompting hi
chosen favorite, the mayor-elect, to a
course of independent defiance of the
boss, by the removal of certain subor-
dinates, the appointees of the bows, to
make room for others who were his own
particular adherents. The inevitable
breach between the mayor and the boas
settled the question of succession against
the mayor and in favor of the secre-
tary and his friend, both of whom re-
mained long in power and feathered well
their nests, as their predecessor had
done-at the expense of the governed.
Fortunately for the people in this see-
tion of our great country, the full reali-
sation of the conditions existing in other
regions, where bossism is practiced as a
fine art, is as yet somewhat difficult.
We have our political bosses-or would-
be bosses-it is true, but they are merely
amateurs, blunderers, seekers after lo-
cal political power, who scarcely com-
prehend the most rudimentary elements
of genuine, finished and successful boss-
ism as It is practiced elsewhere.
"The man with a pull" which enables
him occasionally to control a fat con-
tract or a few petty offices is not a boss.
His "inflooence" belongs to a very dif-
ferent class. He may succeed in misin-
forming those in authority to the extent
of wreaking a petty personal spite
against those who have been slow to
acknowledge his political supremacy, or
who have been so reckless as to defy
his authority; and he may even succeed
In so hoodwinking the voting public as
to achieve his own election to some small
office; but the really thoughtful and ob-
serving elements of the community upon
which he seeks to inflict himself have no
difficulty in sizing him up at his true
value, and it is merely a question of
time for those upon whom he relies as
his staunchest supporters and adherents
to discover his real character, with his
ignominious downfall as the inevitable
result of their enlightenment.
The South is not a wholesome or con-
genh latitude for the cultivation of
bossim as It is known in other lands.
The southern people including those
estimable and welcome strangers who
have migrated from boass-ridden regions
elsewhere to east their lot among us-
do not possess the temperament which
would enable them to bow submissively
to the behests of any Individual citizen
no wiser or more intelligent or more vir-
tuous than themselves, whatever might
be his pretensions. That easy indiffer.
ence to the course of public affairs which
we are prone to Indulge in at times, and
upon which the would-be boas so confi-
dently calculates as one of the prime
factors of the success for which he
strives, frequently gives place to an
alert and Indignant activity, the prove-
cation to which is the unpardonable as-
surance and fatuous self-confidence of
the amateur boss, and the result of

But it feels impelled to caution the ad-
vocates of temperance against the dan-
ger of going to extremes.
The prohibition against the public eale
of intoxicating drinks under existing
laws is effected solely by the will and
the votes of the people themselves.
Thus far, more than thirty of the forty-
five counties of the State have "gone
dry." ..The simple issue of abolishing
the open saloon has been decided in
those counties in the affirmative by the
registered voters thereof. 4q many of
them the matter is still in its experi-
mental stage. Under the law a re-
newal of the controversy every two
years is possible, and, in fact, almost
inevitable. Might not any attempt to
create' and enforce new and additional
restrictions result disastrously to the
temperance cause in such future con-
Let us adopt for a motto: Festina
lente. Let us make haste slowly. Let
us be satisfied, for a time, with the
abolishment of the open saloon, and ap-
ply our energies to the still waiting
work of holding on to the "dry" coun-
ties and causing the "wet" counties to
"go dry" if we can. When that is ac-
complished, the time may come for a
law, only much more tar-reaching-a
law forbidding the importation of liquors
into the State.
The fact that Mr. W. J. Bryan has
again been defeated, in the supreme
court of Connecticut, in his effort to
realize upon the alleged bequest of
$50,000 by his former friend and ad-
mirer, Philo S. Bennett, should not be
regarded as an evidence that the would-
be legatee is not as good a lawyer as he
thought he was. Many a better one
has made worse mistakes--but they
occurred in the management of other
people's affairs.
The death, on the 8th inst., of Senator
Wm. B. Bate, of Tennessee, caused
by exposure during the inauguration
ceremonies, revives the much discussed
proposition for a change in the date of
of that important event to a season
more propitious and less dangerous to
the participants, officials and others.
Florida long ago, and wisely, changed
the date of the meetings of the Legis-
lature because of the probability of in-
element weather in January, and it
would seem that such a change could
almost as easily be made in the date of
the inauguration, even if it does re-
quire an amendment to the Constitu-.
tion. -
Soon after the reorganisathn of the
State Democratic Executive Committee
last summer, a committee was ap-
pointed by Chairman Fletcher to con.
side and present amendments to the
primary election law, many of which
were then regarded as being vitally
necessary to the future well being of
the party. The committee was as fol-
laws: Charles D. Tutemof Jasper, W.
W. Farmer of Yalee, and D. U. Pleteher

The (dainesville Roard of Trade, fol-
lowing the lead of the Jacksonville pro-
moters of the scheme, recently adopted
a resolution favoring the establishment e
of "a State bureau of Immigration, a 2
separate and distinct institution, con-
ducted on practical business lines, with e
location at some central point, where i
Florida homescekers and investors may t
obtain information of an official nature 0
relative to the State, its pleasures and t
health resorts, transportation facilities, i
industrial opportunities, health and other 1
statistics, lands and general resources,"
and urging the Legislature to make an e
appropriation therefore. This resolution a
opens up the whole project. The appro- d
priation of the people's money to create c
a local institution like the one so unwit-
tingly described in the resolution is one u
of the last things the Legislature will
be likely to do. a
Jacksonville push and enterprise chal- r
lenge the admiration of the entire pop- l
elation of the State, and the rapidity c
and style in which the destroyed city t
has been rebuilt constitutes a veritable a
marvel of wonderful activity. But a t
part of that city's tremendous success e
has depended upon the assurance with if
which its people are in the habit of
claiming "the earth and the fullness c
thereof." They wanted the State Cap-
Ital, and when the people of the State .
denied their demands, they endeavored
to secure the location of the Railroad
Commission headquarters. They now I
meek to "establish" the State bureau c
of immigration at Jacksonville; and
they began agitation for a "State fair," t
at Jacksonville, but when the Tampa h
people commenced making arrange- h
ments for a "State fair," the Jackson- a
villians changed their song and dance
to "a great exposition." The whole l
population glories ;n Jacksonville's i
pluck and enterprise, but a bit of cau-
tion, not to ask or claim too much,
might be timely.

Governor Vardaman of Misssielppi
addressed a long, open letter to the
peace oscers of the state la whtch
he starts out with the proposition that
the white people of the state are eo.-
fronted with a grave problem, taking
as his text the recent assault case
to Jackson. He says that what oc-
curred nl the capital city Is liable to
occur in any city or town la the state
and he calls on the ofeer@ of the law
to eafores the v grasey laws of the
state. Among other things he says:
"Much has been said about closing
the door of hope In the face of the
black man," unless the officers of the
law do their full duty nl suppressing
the increasing criminal tendency of
the negro it looks to me like the prob.
ability is that the door of hope wilt
be closed la the face of the white man.
I want the law enforced. I want the
negro protected in his enjoyment of
life, liberty, the product of his labor
and the pursuit of happiness. I want
the mob spirit discouraged In every
way, and the only way to do It is to
enforce vigorously the law against va-
grants particularly, sad all criminals
Of both races if this *hall be done.
I feel safe In saying that crime among
the negroes In the state of Missislsippi
for t he year 1905 will decrease 75 per
per cent.
"Offlers of Mississalpp, I expect you
to do your duty. The peace and order
of your respective communities have
been committed to your keeping. Most
of the crimes that have been commit.
ted by negroes upon white women
are traceable to your neglect of duty.
The governor concludes by saying
that he has to hear of the first negra
who makes his living by honest toll
being guilty of this crime.

It has been said that the present Con-

this be so, we demand that this "do

argy and get its ear to the ground that
It may hear the groaning of the land
under the burdens of them barbarous

people-the burden bearers-to make
bricks without straw, and then we ask
them to look up that they will be wise
enough to hear and heed the demand
of the people and forthwith pass a bill

Department of Agriculture carrying a
sufficient appropriation so that those

vested In agriculture may be relieved

they are justly entitled.

where shall the beginning be made?

When this great highway shnll have
been so constructed, It will stand
through the age as an enduring monu-

Mile Ann Maria Parker, of Parka-
bury, kept a cat--a gray Thomas cat,
with white feet and face, and, as Miss
Parker was wont to observe, "a very
amlable expresdon of countenance."
Mlss Parker was a single lady of
about forty-plump, fair and generally
attractive, and in all probability she
would have been somebody's wife long
before if there had been anybody of
the male persuasion in the vicinity who
had not already a wife.
But Parksbury had only three eligi-
ble men within its precincts. Peter
Hooper, who had only one eye, and was
doubled up like a jackknife with the
rheumatism, stood first on the list.
Peter was a widower, and the first Mrs.
Hooper had never done anything in all
her life that pleased him until the day
she bade him farewell and enjoined
It upon him to put a silver plate on
her coitn, and be sure and have a no-
tice of her death in the Parksbury
Chronicle, stating that she was a good
wife, and was much lamented by all
K 1 her heart-broken friends, and had been
an advance-paying subscriber to the
Chronicle for more than thirty years.
Peter's faith in woman was not very
S/pP. and there seemed little likell-
A''obod that there would ever be a sec-
ond Mrs. Hooper.
The second eligible man was Thomas
Dunbar, and Thomas stuttered so bad-
ly that he had never been able to pro-
pose to any lady. He had made sev-
eral attempts to do so, but had never
succeeded in getting through with the
Job in one day, and the next day his
courage would be gone, and so he had
never been made happy.
Lastly, there was Jethro Turner, but
Jethro had a mother and seven sslaters
to support, so there was not much
chance of his taking a wife at pres-
Miss Parker had always lived In
Parksbury, so you will understand that
her chances for committing matrimony
had been exceedingly small.
She lived alone with her cat, whose
baptismal name was Dick, and was
very strongly attached to the animal,
which was not strange, seeing he was
all the family she had.
One luckless day Dick failed to put
in an appearance at dinner time. Miss
Parker was strongly exercised over his
remissness, but consoled herself with
the thought that there were rats in
her neighbor Thompson's barn, and
probably Dick was displaying a Uttle
strategy In capturing one of them for
a lusch. But when night came, and
Dick was still absent, her anxiety in-
creased, and she could not knit on the
gray stocking she was doing for the
missionary society-her eyes were so
full of water.
A Morning dawned, and Dick came not.
Miss Parker put on bher boaet sad
jacket, and went round to all the neigh-
bors' barans nd eled him, and then
she weat to all the house* sad in-
quired for him. But nobody had set
eyes on him.
One of the neighbors suggested that
perhaps he had gone over to the Hea-
son place. This farm had long been
managed Dy as agent, and the house
had stood vacant, but only a few days
before it had bees purcdeed by a ma"
by the name of PayMa, ad PayaoU
had already takes pqpesiao.

old man., *hem straps and buckles'll

But Miss Parper kept her hold, and
her companion waxed angry and kick-
ed. That kick was fatal. There was a
sound of cloth tearing, apd tailor's
truck going to ruin generally, and the
next moment the unlucky pair were
floundering in the water. Fortunately
the river was not deep, and they onlyI
got a very thorough wetting. Both
crept ashore, looking very limp and
very much subdued.
Miss Parker opened the bag and s-
cured her cat.
"I beg your pardon, ma'am," said the
old gentleman, "for what I was going I
to do to your cat I supposed he was
a stray one, and he ate ten of my
choicest chickens. My name is Payson,

blushing, and beginning to notice that

and a very nice-looking man.

roster than ever.

Mr. Payson, stroking Dick's back-

ly couldn't think of it. You will take
cold in your wet-wet-clothes."
But Mr. Payson laughed at the Idea
of wet pantaloons, and walked home
with Miss Parker, though Dick wiggled
out of his hands at once and trotted
behind with a very self-satislfied air,
as if thoroughly conscious that he had
brought it all about.
Of course, you know that Mr. Pay-
son married Miss Parker, else I should
never have written this story, and

Jail Life in Japan.
Imagine a park or garden in the Jap-
anese style, with dwarf trees, sur-
rounded by a hedge Instead of a wall.
in this park a group of Japanese
houses, like those occupied by the
peasants. The prisoners are all at
work proportioned to their physical
ability. Some are threshing and grind-
Ing rice; others are weaving coarse
cloth of a dark red color, of which the
prisao uniforms are made; the old
and tIarm are separating leaves of
paper. All of them receive a percen-
tage f thgir earnings. The younger
prisoners are in school. The didci-
pline Is military In form, but ton its
spirit, reformatory.
There are few evasions, notwith-
standing the ease w;it which theq
could be effected. One reason for this
la the *efclency of the Japanese po-
lice, which is said to be the best in
the world. The prisaoers are divided
Into three grades. and are delrently

John Barrett as a Milker.

porter in San Francisco, and now
United States minister to Panama,
having In the meantime held the of.
fices of minister to Slam and Argen-

tina and comamlissonergeneral for the
Louisiana Purchase exposition-had a
unique experience during the cam-
paign. While speaking toin a New Eng-

he knew well what It was to work on
a farm. A young rmer nla the crowd,
made sceptical by the speaker's

"You work on a farmf Bet yer nevar

"I take your bet," aaid Barret "I

evelanf Romulus did not appear at
supper sad, for the first time in his
life, he was literally "out sll nlght."
Next mornlag early, a farmer drove
up to the door In a sleigh. Some one
suggested that he had come to wish
us*a Happy New Year, but this proved
to be a mistake. He had come to In-
form me that my wolf had, in the cold
gray dawn, attacked his flock of tur-
keys, and had killed the bligget gob-
bler nla the bunch.
HasUlyj sappla, on a pair of snow-
shoe, I hurried off across lots to the
scene of the tragedy. It was some-
thing over a mile from my house, in
a swamp, and there I saw a sight
wbh:h recalled descriptions of the Bat-
tle of UIaoyan. For more than an
acre, the snow was strewn with feath-
ers, and there was scarcely a square
yard in all that space which was not
splashed or streaked with blood. Near
the centre of this grewsome field, lay
the body of the old gobbler, famous
for miles around, and said to be the
largest turkey in Sullivan county, N.
H., who weighed more than twice as
much as the coyote, and had dragged
that animal back and forth through
the snow for a long distance before
his strength had departed and he had
succumbed to the attacks of hie per.
sistent little foe. The latter, whom I
specially sought, was nowhere to be
seen, and though I followed his trail
for upward of two miles, I did not
get so much as a glimpse of his gray
My next move was to visit the out-
raged farmer, and discover to what
extent I was indebted to him. I found
him discussing the affair with his
wife, and by the way they were both
smiling. I Judged they were more
amused than angry. Wherever I
have lived and kept "varmints" to
study, I have been blessed with most
forbearing neighbors, and Meriden. N.
H., proves no exception. When we
finally came to the question of the
damages-a question they seemed in
no hurry to thrust Into the conversa-
tion-they admitted that turkeys of
that weight and appearance usually
sold for $5 at this season, and even
offered tu "hitch up" and deliver that
particular bird at my door; an offer I
gratefully declined.
As I approached my house, there
was a flurry of snow, a streak of
gray, and Romulus lay at my feet,
whining and wagging his tail, as I
stooped to pat his head. He's rather

wolf for all that.-Ernest Harold

Of all the diseases known, with
which women are afflicted, kidney dis-
ease is the most fatal. In fact, unless
early and correct treatment is applied,
the weary patient seldom survives.
Being fully aware of this, Mrs. Pink*
ham, early Io her career, gave exhaust-
ive study to the subject, and in pro-
ducing her great remedy for woman's
ills-Lydia Plnkhasm's Vegetable
Compound-was careful to ee that it
contained the correct combination of
herbe which was mare to control that
fatal disease, woman's kidney trouble&.
The Vegetable Compound sets in har.
mony with the laws that govern the
entire female system, and while there
are many so called remedlee for kidney
troubles. Lydia B. Plnkham's Veg-.
table Compound Is the only one eapes
clally prepared for women, and thou-
sands have been cured of serious kid ney
dersangerente by It. Derangements of
the feminine organs quickly affect the
Kidneys, and when a woman has such
symptoms pain or weight in the
loins, backache, bearing down paIns,
urine too frequent scanty or high ol-
e ed, producing scalding or burning,
or deposits like brick dust In It; un-
usual thirst, swelling of hands and feet,

Pe-ru-na for Colds and Catarrh.
The following interesting letter ves one
young woman's experience with Feruna:
Miss Rose Gerbing, a popular society
woman of Crown Point, Ind., writes:
"Recently I took a long drive in the
country, and being too thinly clad I caught
a bad cold which settled on my lungs, and
which I could not seem to shake off. I
had heard a great deal of Peruna for colds
and catarrh and I bought a bottle to try.
I am pleased that I did for it brought
speedy relief. It only took about two bot-
tle, and I consider this money well spent.
"You have a firm friend in me, and I
not only advise its use to my friends, but

have purchased several bottle. to et? to
those without the mean to buy, am have
noticed without exception that ft hi
brought a speedy cure wherever it has bees
used. '-Rose Gerbing.
P m-ru-na Contains No Waroeti.
One reason why Peruna has found per-
manent use in so many homes is that it
contains no narcotic of any kind. Perans
is perfectly harmless. It can be useddany
length of time without acquiring a drug
habit. Peruna does not produce tempora1ry
results. It is permanent in its effect.
It has no bad effect upon the system.
and gradually eliminates catarrh by remov-
ing the cause of catarrh. There are a mul-
titude of homes where Peruna has been
used on and off for twenty years. Such a
thing could not be possible if Peruna con-
