He was married three sanes. ires,
to Miss Adee Posey daughter Judge
Wa. Poasey of Warwha, worth Couaty,
S Goorgian to whom three rm were
born, two of whom urvlve him, to-wit:
Hon. J. H. T. Byoum, of Uve Oak,
Pla., and J. W. Bynum, of White
Sprtngs, Fla.
His second wife 'was Miss Mary J.
Brinaon, of Suwannee county, Florida,
and his third wife, who survves him,
was Miss Fannie P. Anderson of Dan-
bury, Ga.
SIn 1864 he moved to Lafayette
f' county, Florida where he practiced his
profession till the outbreak of the Civil
War, when he enlisted in Company
Tnird Florida regiment, and waselected
second lieutenant, and roae to the rank
of captain. He was continuously in
the service until the war closed, being
severely wounded in 1864 in east Ten-
nessee.
Upon learning in April, 1866, that the
army was to be surrendered, he declar-
ed that he would ever sjg a parole.
On communicating his determination to
the fourteen men, who tituted the
remnant of his company, hey decided
to a man to stand by him, and he led
them from North Carolina to Florida by
avoiding the towns garrisoned by Fed-
eral troops, and traveling by country
roads, and all reached home safely,
where they disbanded.
He moved to Suwannee county and
settled near the site of the present town
of Live Oak, before the railroad located
the station there, and commenced the
practice of medicine. He was soon told
uy a Federal revenue officer that he
could not follow his profession unless
he took the oath of allegiance to the
Uuited States. He replied: "All right,
then, I'll throw my saddlebags under
the bed and quit.' This he did and
turned his attention to farming.
When the town of Live Oak sprang
up around the railroad station, he en-
tered into the drug business, which he
continued until his death. For a few
years he sold drugs at White Springs.
He was elected chief clerk of the
Houseof Representatives at the session
of 1864, securing a furlough from the
army that he might serve. He served
continuously until his death, except one
term of carpetbag rule, in which hewa
reading clerk, and one term when he
was incapacitated for performing the
duties by a severe attack Of rheuma-
tiasi.
He always took an active part in pol.
itics, and, as he was a gzood jude of
men, his services were very valuhble to
his party in the many campaigns, espe-
cially in those during the reconstruction
He was a prominent and consistent
member of the Baptist denomination
for fifty years.
As chief clerk of the House of Repre-
sentatives he was useful and efficient,
having performed th a duties until they
were as familiar as the implest duties
of everyday life. His popularity was
so great that he seldom had apoA ent
for the office, and it was regard as t a

In an article reproduced elsewhere
from the Tampa Times, under a head-
ing relating to the insane hospital, will
be found some rarely incisive remarks
on the subject of the State printing.

The friends of the dear "littlest peo-
ple" will rejoice in the fact that, thanks
to the efforts of Mr. Gillen, of Colum-
bia, in the Senate, and Mr. Wells, of
Hillsborough, in the House, bills have
passed both houses authorizing the es-
tablishment of Kindergartens in the
public schools of the State.

The United States revenue authorities
now require Federal license for the
sale of cider. In Gainesville a few
days ago the dealers In cider were re-
quired to pay the revenue tax, although
some had been handling the apparently
harmless beverage without restriction
for years. Doubtless the officials dis-
covered some crookedness or loading of
the cider with whiskey, or alcohol in
some other form, and that the beverage
is now regarded as intoxicating.

One of the most finished specimens
of forensic oratory heard during the
present session in the Senate was the
speech of Hon. James E. Crane, of
Tampa, Senator from the eleventh dis-
trict, Wednesday morning, on the mo.
tion to indefinitely postpone the Senatve
bill providing for State uniformity of
s..huol text books. The motion was de-
feated by Senator Crane's eloquent
plea for the bill; and many of his fel-
low-senators and others gathered about
his desk after adjournment to congrat-
ulate him


A distinguished jurist, whose name
in familiar as household words in all
sections of the State, was entertaining
a group of legal friends at the Leon the
other evening with some humorous
comments on a bill now pending in the
Legislature, providing that under
certain circumstances boards of county
commissioners may, in their discretion,
call upon circuit judges to hold special
terms, and making It the duty of such
judges to obey the call. The absurdity
of subjecting a Judicial officer to the
authority of local county officials
seemed to strike the entire group as a
sample of the supremely ridiculous in
In the business of legislation,

The announcement by the President
that supplies and material for the con-
struction of the Panama canal will be
purchased In the open markets of the
world, wherever they can be procured

and indignation among the' greedy tnrst
managers, who Imagined that because
they belonged to the Republican party,
and generally make generous contribu.
tions to its campaign fund, they would
be permitted to rob the United States
In the same manner that the nikluitous
Republican tariff laws permit them to
rob the people. The President and his
advisers have taken due notice of the
fact that steel rails, for example, are
sold very much cheaper abroad, with
the freight added, than they are to con-
sumers In the United States; and there
are hundreds of other articles subject
to the same conditions.

The splendid argument of Hon. H. H.
Buckman in the House last week on the
"Buckman bill" to consolidate the State

special order for Thureday.

literature which will enlighten the
masses as to the State's resources and
attractions, and the opportunities
within its borders for either labor or
capital, is a vast undertaking and the
sporadic efforts of individual commun-
ities cannot do justice to the task. The
State itself should take the initiative
in furnishing truthful and reliable in-
formation which will induce immigra-
tion and invite capital to aid in its de-
velopment.
From the Quincy Times: The measure
introduced in the Senate provides for
an appropriation of $15,0uO per year, it
is true, but with the revenue coming
from such a source it will scarcely be
missed, and the good it will do will be
so apparent the expenditure will not be
regretted. It is a common thing for
taxpayers-legislators, as well as oth-
ers-to frown down any measure carry-
ing with it an appropriation, and in the
majority of cases they are quite right;
but we know from experience that we
are in great need of emigrants; and we
know from still greater experience that
we are unable to obtain them when we
economize to such an extent as to con-
ceal from all outsiders the advantages
offered settlers by our State.
In 1891, when the law providing for a
special tax for the support of the im-
migration bureau was repealed, there
was a balance of the special fund thus
raised remaining unexpended in the
State treasury. This fund, produced
by special taxation for a speeAie par-
pose, should have remained inviolate,
and subject only to the dispoeltion of

for the next fiscal year, the United
States Department of Agriculture hav-
ing recently ruled to that effect."
Concerning the farm property the
committee's report is very full. and
only meaire extracts are possible.
The "model farm" in declared by the
committee to be "a model only of what
should be avoided; that It is not adapted
to the purposes intended by the Legis-
lature; that it has not been used in the
manner specified by the act of appro-
priation, and showv incontestable inef-
ficiency of management." On the
"experiment farm" conducted under
the. act of Congress. the committee
found "almost no crops of experimental
value now grown;" and found but one
student, a resident of Columbia county,
studying agriculture.
Considering the fact that the board
of trustees of this institution is com-
posed of such citizens as J. D. Callo-
way and L. Harrison, of Lake City;
Geo. W. Wilson and J. R. Parrott, of
Jacksonville. C. A. Carson, of Kissim.
mee; Frank E. Harris, of Ocala, and
E. D. Beggs, of Pensacola, it seems
strange that the conditions, so patent
to the committee, should not have ap
pealed to them for correction and lm-
provement, as well as for report to the
Legislature and to the people.
Elsewhere we reproduce from the
editorial columns of the Jacksonville
Times-Union "the other side, "as it ap-
pears to the editor of that paper, who
is a member of the board of trustees.


AS TUO "15CIAL UCOUNSL.
The debate, on Saturday last, on the
bill of Mr. Persons, of Columbia, pro-
hibiting the employment of special coun-
sel by the Governor, the trustees of the
internal improvement fund, the rail-
road commission and other boarls and
departments of the State government,
developed the fact that misapprehen-
sion existed as to the real situation, as
well as to the alleged position of At-
torney-General Ellis on the question.
The broad statement made on the floor
of the House that he is opposed to the
employment of special counsel scarcely
does him justice. Before the commit-
tee Mr. Ellis defined his position to the
effect that if the Legislature would
give him an assistant he could attend
to all of the legal business of the State
in the several departments of the gov-
ernment.
The Obstacles in the way of employ-
ing the sew ces of the several State at-
torneys in the transaction of the State's
general legal business will readily occur
to any one at all familiar with their
constitutional duties, which might re-
quire their Immediate attention at the
very time when they might be called
upon to serve the State as assistants to
the Attorney-General; in which event
one class or the otherof the duties thus
imposed upon them would necessarily
have to be neglected or postponed.
Attorney-General Ellis' suggestion is
a good one, and it is to be hoped that it
is not too late for the aame to prevail
when the House bill again comes up,
either in that body or the Senate.


Befoe thisa appa in print the fate
of the Backman educational bill, which
passed the Hose of Representatives
last Saturday by a vote of 86 to 22, will
be known.
No measure presented for the con-
deration of this Legislature has ex-
cited sueh wide-spread interest and
comment, and its passage through the
Howe was marked by an extended,
earnest and exhaustive debate.
One of the strongest arguments, per-
haps, in favor of the changes contem-
plated in the bill was afforded in the re-
port of the Joint committee appointed
to investigate and report upon the Uni.
versity of Florids, which was submit-
on the 18th Inst.
The committee began its report by
noting a loss of something like 75
students since the beginning of the
year, "some on account of sickness and
others left because of irregularities and
failure to keep their work." Of the
140 students attending, 72, or more
than 61 per cent, are residents of Co-
lumbia, the county in which the Uni-
versity is situated. Of the entire num-
ber, 138, or more than 98 per cent, are
in preparatory and commercial clases"
studying branches properly belonging
to public county high schools and private
commercial colleges, thus depriving the
young people of the State, in a meas-
ure, of the facilities for education the
institution was intended to provide."
For these 140 students there are 20
instructors, or one to every even stu-
dents, receiving salaries ranging from
$1,000 to $1,500, the president receiving
$2,250.
Of the buildings and equipment, the
committee reports that the chapel hall

In addition to the above, the steam boilers at the
State Insane Asylum at Chattahoochee are insured
for .28,000 against explosion for three years. The
premium paid was $150.
Answering the request of the resolu-
tion for information concerning "the
amount of money paid out for any ser-
vice in connection with said insurance
affairs of the -State to any one for any
servicee whatever connected therewith,
and the name of such person receiving
said sums of money," etc., Governor
B reward says:
"There has been no 'money paid out
for any service in connection with said
insurance affairs of the State to anyone
for any services whatever connected
the,'with,' and there is no agreement
or tnderstanding now existing whereby
any money will be 'paid out for any
service in connection with said insur-
ance affairs of the State to anyone for
*:y services connected therewith.'
"The only payments made, or to be
made are the regular premiums charged
by each insurance company for inauing
Me property of the State, as shown by
the above itemized statement and the
authority for the payment of such pre-
minms ia contained n ection 1 of chap-
ter No. 5116 of the Laws of Florida, ap-
proved May 12th, 1908."
It could not be expected that the in-
quiry contained in the resolution, or the
answer thereto, would disclose any pay-
ment or payments made by the present
administration, for thee have been
none; but, unfortunately, the language
of the resolutkn did not require inves
tigation and information aatosuch pay-
ments as may have been made by the
administration immediately preceding
the present one; had it done so, and had
the information thus soght been aces-
sible to the present admlaItaotlIF the
renit of the inquiry might have been
different.

General Wood Reports Cleaning
Up Piratical Moro Band.


ALL ARE EXTERMINATED

Troops "Behaved Welh" While Annihil-
ating the Enemy--Report Reaches
War Department,

A Manila dispatch, under Friday .,
date, is u follows: The Moro out-
laws, against whom General Leonard
Wood has been campaigning, have
been killed in action together wit-h
all principals. The outlaws were sup-
porters and followers of the Sultau
of Sulu. The large chiefs of the
Island of Jolo were also involved.
The outbreak was an aggregation of
piratical outlaws and disorderly char-
acters of Sulu and the other islands
stretching down to Borneo.
The position selected by the out-
laws for the battle was an almost im-
peone'rable Jungle and exceedingly
strong, prohibiting the use of artil-
lery and necessitating close contact
and an assault in two instances. Gen-
eral Wood's forces sustained a lose of
nine killed and twenty-one wounded.
The wounded are doing well. The
constabulary had two killed. Tho
latter were highly praised by General
Wood, who said:
"The troops behaved splendidly and
performed this difficult service in a
highly creditable manner."
General Wood has returned to Zanm.
boanga with the troops.
Wood Sends Report.
The war department at Washington
has received the following cablegram
from General Corbin, transmitting a
report from General Wood regarding
the engagements in the island of
Jolo:
"Following just received from Gen-
eral Wood via Dumaguete: May 14
returned to Zamboanga yesterday.
9f Troops sent to Jolo are-being returned
to stations as rapidly as possible. The
outlaws who have been raiding and
killing In Borneo, were killed in ac-
tion together with all their principal
supporters and followers of sultan,
with all large chiefs, but the island
in no way involved, purely an aggre-
gation of piratical outlaws, disorderly
characters from Sulu and other isl-
ands stretching down to Borneo. Posi-
tions selected by outlaws for defense
were surrounded in almost impenetra-
ble jungles and were exceedingly
strong, prohibiting use of artillery,
necessitating close contact and assault
in two instances. Casualties nine en-
listed killed and twenty-one enlisted
wounded; two constabulary killed,
\ three wounded during the ten days
operations. All wounded doing well
and all expected to recover; bulk of
wounds not serious. Troops behaved
splendidly and performed this most
difficult service In a highly creditable
manner. Full report will be forward-
ed. General breakdown of the cable
combined with use of water transpor-
tat.on at Jolo and in aiding Bufaord
prevented sending dispatch earlier.
"Following lls of killed reported by
General Wood in.'addition to those re-
ported May 17:
"Samuel Weaver, company G, twen-
ty-second infantry; Ell Howell. com-
pany ri, twenty-second Infantry; Dan-

China will oppose to Chinese exclu-
sion its boycott of American goods.
This was announced officially Thurs-
day by the Chinese legation in Wash-
ington.
Asked what was meant by the ac-
tion of China in decided not to pur-
chase American goods, the Chinese
minister said:
"It means business. Chhna will not
buy a yArd of American goods while
America violates her treaty obliga-
tions by excluding or deporting Chi-
nose."
The Chinese diplomat explained that
the treaty of 1868 between China and
i America gave America full freedom
of intercourse. Chinese, under that
treaty, could come to America, and
America could trade with China. This
treaty was modified by the truety of
1ts, which provided that the United
States and China might make an
agreement excluding Chinese labor-
eis. This was done in 1S94 by a
treaty limited to 10 years, which trea-
ty expired last year. The expiration I
of this treaty, the Chinese diplomat
asserts, places the two countries in
the position In which they were
Ipaced by the treaty of 1880. Ev-

is excluded or deported in violation
of the treaty obligations of the Unit-
ed States to China. The only way in
which there can he any such exclu-
s!on, the Chinese hold, is by a treaty
providing for it. No such treaty is
now in force.
Among other interests which will
suffer severely from the boycott are
the cotton growers and millers of the
south, China being a large consumer
of American cotton and cotton goods.

Fitting Chlima to Great Metiig in
Atlanta of Ken Who Hold Helm

The annual convention of the Na-
tional Association of Manufacturers
of the United States was brought to
a close in Atlanta Thursday night
with a brilliant address by Hon. Vfo-
tor H. Metcalf, secretary of the doe-
partment of commerce and labor.
After reviewing the growth of Amer-
ican trade and after calling attention
to the fact that European manufac-
turers are obtaining possession of
markets that belong to the American
manufacturer. Secretary Metcalf be-
gan his peroration with:
"The time, gentlemen, is ripe for
American invasion of foreign mar-
kets, especially the markets of the
Pacific, and it will be your own fault
if you do not at once start an ag-
gressive and determined campaign for
the purpose of securing these mar-
kets."
President Roosevelt was given a,
round of hearty applause by the splen.
did audience when. in presenting Sec-
retary Metcalf, Congressman Living-
ston said:
"Secre.ary Metcalf is In Atlanta as
the personal represcnitativo of that
man who !s winning his way Into
the heart of the people of the north,
and of the south-"
A burst of applause interrupted
Colon-I Livinvston, and upon Its con-
cluson:t he completed his sentence.
"And of the east and west."
Regarding the progress of the south,
Mr. Metcalf said:
"It Is highly fitting and proper that
this, the tenth annual meeting of the
National Association of Manufactur-
ers should be hold in the city of At-
lanta. In which city, as I am inform-
ed, the first Impetus was given to the
birth of tbo association. It Is also
proper that at this time and before
this audience I should say something
about the industrial growth and de-
velopment of the south and a few
words also as to the part which the
great state of Creorgia has taken In
that development, I, for a long time,
have taken a deep interest in the
southern states and have been more
than gra'lfled at the wonderful prog-
ross made by those states. There I s
no section of the country today more
prosperous than the south and the
signs all points to a continuation
of that prosperity.

THE TRUE DEnlOCRAT.
JOHN &. COLLINS, Propretort.

Published Every FRIDAY Morningf.

President Wilson of Princeton says
the proper way to deal with the trusts
is to moralize them.

The farmer doea not know his pow-
er and seems slow to recognize his Im-
portance, declares Up-to-Date Farm*
Inc. These will both dawn upon him
one of these days-in fact, be has rec'
ognlsed them already, and then he
will take his proper poslUon among
the people of the world-will come to
the front


Henry Clews Is earnest and grave
In his advice to the speculating public
at large to be very cautious In Its
stock Investments In those days of un-
rest abroad and of prospective anti-
railroad, anti-trust, and anti-tariff leg-
islation. Mr. Clews' advice should be
heeded, as he has all the logic on his
side, admonishes the Cleveland Lead-
er.


State Labor Organlzer Smith of In-
diana In a recent speech at Logans-
port announced the news that Oyama
and Oka, the Japanese generals, are
both Irish, says the Pathfinder. The
former's original name was O'Yama
and the latter's O'Keougb. according
to him. Kuropatkin's name also has
an Irish smack to It. but It Is hardly
to be supposed he will be claimed by
Hibernians as a fellow-countryman.

It has been estimated by Dr. John M.
Clarke, New York State Geologist, that
when 80,000 cubic feet of water per
second have been taken away from the
present flow "the Canadian channel
will still be an Interesting object, but
the Ameotcan Falls will be wholly
gone." The reason why the Ameri-
can Falls will go first is that their
sill la more elevated than that of the
Canadian Falls, says the New York
Times.

Human nature is much like It was
centuries ago, when the poet wrote of
the very rich of the Augustan era of
Rome: "The covetous man Is always
In want." He Is in want. he has the
longing of the beggar, though he Is
the possessor of tens of millions. And
thus did Horace, Ignorant perhaps of
the Sermon on the Mount, picture In
satire a trust magnate of the Ameri-
can republic of our day, relates the
Washington Post. Solomon would
have added some of our trusts to the
things that "say not it is enough." If
they had existed In his day.

Farmers should be especially partic.
ular to see that their boys have a
chance in lite, says the Weekly Wit-
ness. If the boy shows any inclina-
tion whatever to attend an agricultur-
al college get him there by all means,
even If it Is at a sacrifice. Lucky In.
deed is the boy who Is fortunate
enough to secure an education ttat
will at him for his life's work upon
the farm. Give the boy a chance, an?
If he does not then succeed as a farm-.
er the greater part of the blame will
be because he made the huge mistake
of neglecting to profit by the oppor-
tunity of securing an agricultural ed-
ucaion when it was offered to him.

A famous physician upon being
asked recently what Is the chief cause
of III health replied: 'Thlnking oand
talking about it all the time."

The British war department Is
alarmed at the hours outlook. The
development of the auto to diminish-
Ing the horse-breeding| business, the
class of horses demanded for war puP
poses is deteriorating, and foreign
purchasers are draining the available
supply,

Mr. Israel Zangwill, telling a Lon.
don interviewer about his trip to the
United States. says he was impressed
by the way "Little Poles and Rouman-
lans and their kindred are taught to
sing paens to the spirit of American
liberty. They are, as It were, star-
spangled into Yankeelsm." Pretty
good phrase, that, the New York
World comments,


A remarkably large number of
I yachts is to cross the Atlantic In
competition for the prize offered by
the German Emperor, states the New
York Tribune. In fact, It will be the
greatest oceanic struggle which has
yet taken place among pleasure ves.
sels, and will be watched with the
keenest interest and concern. There
will be no contest for the America's
cup this year, but it is possible that
we shall have In 1906 another Inspir-
Ing battle for this trophy. Our yachts-
men certainly have occasion to rejoice
in the golden age of their splendid
sport.

Contrary to the experience of Chl-
cago and Buffalo after their exposi-
tions, St. Louis. to quote The Globe-
Democrat, "has a building boom, a
boom In postal receipts and a busi-
ness boom generally." As one of the
Incidents of this booming spirit and
the rejuvenation of the city by the big
bridge, a Million club has been organ-
Ized, whose object, as its name Im-
plies, Is to Increase the population of
the city to the million mark, and the
time limit set for this accomplishment
Is that of the next decennial census of
the United States, say the New York
Tribune. To achieve this aim, which
seems a desirable thing to ambitious
and enterprising St. Ilouls people, The
U(lube-Democrat says only two things
nre necessary: "Make the advantages
of the city known and make the city
worthy of its advantages."

The organizing secretary of the mis-
sion to lepers In India and the East
informs us that treatment with lepro.
lIn, the now wsrum prepared by Capt.
tost. 1. M. H., is being tried (n several
of the Indian asylums of the mission
to lepers, states the Iiondon (Eng.)
Globe. At Parulla, In Ilengal (where
the society supports 600 lepers), three
cases are declared by the deputy san-
itary commissioner of the district to
be "to all Intent and purpose com-
pletely cured." Others show less fa- I
vorablo results. If found to be of
lasting benefit the society will adopt
the treatment In others of Its forty-
two asylums. in India and the East.
Meanwhile Dr. Wilson of Miraj, Bom-
bay presidency, has expressed the
opinion that Capt. Roat has made a
very great discovery and again opened
the door of hope to the lepers.


Commandant Jan l.ouw, the Doer of-
ficer, who refused to lay down his
i arms when hie fellow-countrymen sur-
rendered to the British, and who fled
to the' laonghorg mountains on the
borders of German West Africa with
his land of burgher fighters, has been
successfully resisting the combined
English and German forces In South
Africa for more than two years. In
June, 19012. when the Boer army capitu-
lated. lAuuw fled with only about 300
men. Within the first year, however,
this number was Increased to 2000.
and today be ls said to have a com.
blned force of 8000 sturdy warriors
under his command. Many Doers still
believe that their country can be re-
claimed, and many of them look to
Louw as the man who will start the
next rebellion, the Argonaut states.
There exists an understanding among
the Boers and their sympathisers that'
the next uprising will be in 1904, ad
it is also stated that 11,000 men have
agreed to respond to the commandant's

The girl wbo whts to get d pf a
persais et ad Ursoeme caller usually
does everythlag eke can to show him
he is uswekeome without openly tell-
Ing him so. Her performances are
many and Interesting.
First she pleads other engage
ments.
Her next dodge Is to "big brother"
him.
The third scheme Is to act natural,
so horribly natural that anybody but
a born idiot would take the hint.
That falling abe takes to palming
him off on her family.
Then she gives away his flowers
and insists upon her small brother
gobbling up his chocolate creams un-
der his very nose.
Next she abuses him. She makes
appointments with him and takes
paine not to keep them. She gives
his dances to some one else. She
goes off rowing with a rival when she
has promised to go driving with him
When she shuts herself up In her
room and refuses to see him the de-
sired result Is generally accomplished.
even where all other methods have
failed.
if be still comes, she can either
ask her father to hit him In the bead
with an axe or she can ask him why
he d;:esn't get married, so he will
have some place to spend his even-
Ings. Then he will either propose or
quit. If he proposes she can refuse
him, and he is sure to come no more
-at least for a while.-Pittsburg Dis.

The cost of locomotivoE has in

In their construction, states the New
York Sun. Where te'n years ago the
average cost of a locomotive fully
eqtulppe:l for service was $12,500, It is
now $15,000, and the heavier train-
load carried by American rall-odals
necessitates a higher grade of freight
locomotives, with more strength and
lees speed than passenger k,0mo-
tives.

A Short Lesecn in Platitudes.
We notlrc that fun is being poked
at Vice President Fairbanks for the
platitudes of his speeches, of which
we seem to be in for a long series.
Hut we must bear In mind the simple
I distinction between the solemn and
the strenuous platltune. Mr. Fair-
banks is easily the master of the for-

political parties "should stand for
those measures which are wholesome,'

which inspires general gloom. But
how easy it would be for 'him to add
the little more and how much it is!

Timee Have Changed.
In thene days, whea the health aque-
tion is the first thing considered in a
child's upbringing, it Is curious to
read the following letter written by
a mother In the early thirties of the
last century, and quoted by Mrs.
Kirby In "Years of Experience." The
lady Is in correspondence with a dear
friend.
"Why, my dear, Charles has a great
friend, a physician in the city, who
po:sitively forbids bLs wife putting
stays on her little girl, or making her
sleeves so they Interfere with any
movements of her arms. Now she Is
fourteen, and It is entirely too late to
Pavo her figure. It is a perfect shame
to wrong a girl so. One can hardly
imagine a an sacrificing a daughter's
Interets to his own erratic notions
when the mischief can never be un-
done."
Short-s gbted father! Perhaps he
was the same physician who gave the
unreai(mable dirtrtioni to two small
boys who were down with chills and
.lever. The doctor was called. Ho
prescribed quinine, ar.n gave strict or-
ders that the small patients should
have neither meat nor coffee wbiie
the attack lasted.
"We only want jait a quail and one
cup of coffee apiece," piped up the
younger of the twain, aged five. "And
we're going to have them, too."
It sl sad to say that they did have
them.-Youth'A Companion.
