concerning the same.
Flerida Beys at Grant.
The affectionate regard in which Prof.
H. E. Bierly is held m Florida is abun-
dantly exemplified by the large number

summer vacation, spent on the Connect-

For several reasons we refrain from
comment in this issue on the matter of
the employment of teachers for the Tal-
S ahasee High School-a matter which
has excited unwonted interest among
the patrons of the school and citizens
generally._^,_____ J,

On the 15th ints., according to ached-
ale, the competition heretofore adver-
tised by Duval Bros. for the best article
showing why the business of the firm is
successful closed with ten entries for
the $5 chek offered by this enterpris-
ing establishment. All were good. and
some much more than good, and the
prize was awarded by the committee to
the following, by Mies Nina Bigham,
the ingenious and meritorious rhymes
bein regarded by the committee as
worthy of the prise; and the check was
accordingly delivered to the successful
competitor yesterday:
"DUVAL BROTEIRS."
Why Their Besiness is a Saccees.
On February 8, when birds do mate,
Of the good year 1902,
The Messrs. Duval, with prospects small,
Began business on South Monroe.
These rules they've made and observed
in trade,
Of buying and selling for cash,
With courtesy to all, both great and
small,
And dry goods warranted to wash.
It is worthy of mention that prompt
attention
Given to all their trade,
Selling reliable stuff, of value enough,
Great success for them has made.
None are suffered to wait, either lowly
or great,
Their wants being supplied,
The large and small, by Messrs. Duval,
In buying, are satisfied.
Their up to date store,
With dry goods "galore,"
In variety and styles complete,
Afford a supply for all who buy.
And with their prices none can com-
pete.
They enter no charge, and prices enlarge,
In order to make up for loss,
But cash on the spot scoops in the whole
lot,
As near as possible, to cost.
When that maid, with a blush,
Comes to buy "on the hush,"
Her "trousseau" of daintiest kind,
Of laces and mulls, lingerie and frills,
Her ideals at Duval's she'll find,
When the funeral dir
Requires crepe and serge,
And the sable fabrics for pall,
The soft winding sheet, and shrouding
complete,
With gloves, you will find at Duval's.
Their line of fine shoes
From which you can choose
Is ample for both sexes.
Ladies and gents, and children in pants,
At prices that never perplexes.
Their clothing for boys
Fill mothers with joy,
While their charming suits for youth,
And garments for men. with money to
spend,
Are always represented in truth.
Each buyer receives full value for what
he gives,
And no one is cheated or "flammed."
And this is the reason, that in and out
of season,
With customers their store is jammed.
The way to success is to earn it, I guess,
And Duval's have certainly won it,
By courtesy and truth for the aged and
youth,
With reliable goods, they've done it.
They will farther succeed
By taking good heed
To the rule they've long observed.
"As ye would that men should do unto
you, so do ye unto them,"
And thus won the success they deserve.
Incredible IBrtality.
It would have been incredible brutal-
ity if Chas. F. Lemberger, of Syracuse,
NY., had not done the best he could
for his suffering son. "My boy." he
says, "cut a fearful gash over his eye,
so I applied Bucklen's Arnica Salve,
which quickly healed it and saved his
eye." Good for burns and ulcers too.
Only 25c at all drug stores.
Bingen, Ga., July 26, 1906.
This is to certify that I have used the
Home Comfort Range for 16 years.
It cost me one joint of pipe. I think
the Home Comfort Steel Range is the
finest range made. It gives me perfect
satisfaction and is in good order to-day

Our cers.
Tallahassee's Itary officials have
shown the to be fully entitled
to the entire and approbation
of every res by their unwearied
devotion to e arduous and not al-
ways pleasant duti. They have not,
however, received from some of the
citizens that consideration which their
work, and their performance of it, so
justly deserves.
Indifference to notices, carelessness
in the carrying out of instructions, and,
in some few cases, open defiance of
their authority, are some of the means
adopted to make their difficult task
harder, and only a thoughtful forbear-
ance on their part has prevented the
application of some of the penalties of
a very stringent city law.
We sincerely hope that such indul-
gence as has been shown will no longer
abused, and that all will unite in
giving our efficient health officials that
confidence and co-operation without
which a clean and healthy city will be
an impossibility.
Neglected Celds.
Every part of the mucous membrane,
the nose, throat, ears, head and lungs,
etc., are subjected to disease and blight
from neglected colds. Ballard's Hore-
hound Syrup is a pleasant and effective
remedy.
W. Akendrick, Valley Mills, 'fex
writes: I have used Ballard's Horehound
Syrup for coughs and throat troubles;
it is a pleasant and most effective rem-
edy." For sale by all druggists.
Mr. Richard Scarlett is in the city
visiting friends.
See Mr. Cay before you purchase your
horse flesh. He has a nice lot to select
from.

cashier and rental manager of the Jack-
sonville Development Co. is circulating

throt reached home yesterday, after a

North Carolina mountain region with
their fine boys, who have returned to

Sere Neeth I Cattle.
After the third page of this issue.
containing a reference to the prevailing
cattle disease, went to prees we re
ceived the following from Dr. Dawson:
The cattle disease which has been
prevalent in this and some other sec-
tonsof the State for the past few weeks
has been investigated by the State
Board of Health through its veterina-
rian, Dr. C. F. Dawson, who states
that the disease is "mycotic stomati-
tie," or sore mouth produced by the
animals feeding upon acrid plants. The
climatic conditions of the season have
been productive of this class of forage.
Affected animals are taken with slob-
bering. The mouth parts and throat
swell and finally ulcerate. Later the
feet become affected, and, if the ani-
mals remain untreated, some die from
inability to swallow. Adult cattle only
are affected.
As treatment, it is ra~jtnmnded that
the mouth be washed out several times
a day with alum water or weak tannic
acid solution or oak bark tes. When
ulcers form they may be painted with
Lugol's solution 9f iodine, or with iodl-
form dissolved in ether. Similar a-
tringents or sugar of lead water may be
used upon the feet to cure the lame-
ness. The feed should consist of soft,
unirritating liquid, or semi-solid mate-
rials. Disturbances of the digetive
mp -, whtois, aia n to oe m a
course of the disase, should receive
appropriate treatment.
he animals should, of course, be re-
moved from the offending pastures.

Havana, Fla., August 7, 1906.
This in to certify that I purchased a
Home Comfort Range 16 years ago and
used it 12 or 14 years when my house
was burned down on the range; but to
my great surprise I found the body of
the range damaged but very little. I
used the Range on for a long time every
thing in good order. A few months ago
a Home Comfort Steel Range salesman
drove up to my house and I bought one
of the Improved Steel Ranges and it
gives perfect satisfaction. Don't be
afraid to buy a Home Comfort Steel
Range. H. M. WOMACK AND WIPE.

you think I ought to bear.
"Taere are two or three considera-

keep before your minds In coming to
a conclusion as to the proper type
of canal. I hope that ultimately it
will prove possible to build a sea

doubtAidly be best in the end if feasi-

The arrival was Manuel Encalade,

At first the lumber intended for a
new house was used to make boxea to

bodies were simply wrapped In

Mr. Encalade brought a lHat of

It was not Improbable that numbers

NEW YORK LIFE


GAVE UP $48,000


To Aid In Defeat of Dem acrs n
Natio0 Election.


FEARED FOR ITS ASSETS


Check Was G:ven Trfusaer of Repub-
1:can Campaig3 Fund--Sam: Was
Done ia Bryan Cmpaigns.

George W. Perkins, member of the
firm of J. P. Morgan & Co., a1i
first vice president of the New York
Life Insurance company, was thestar
witness at Friday' a sesioa in New
York of !.he ;special legislative com-
nittee probing life insurance corn-
panies' methods and his testimony
was replete with revetatons in the
development of finance es applied by
insura.Ice (ompinies.
The climax came when Mr. Per-
kins was aske.l concerning an entry
of $40,702 In a ledger marked "Or.
dered ppid by the president." Mr.
Randolph, treasurer of the New York
Life, who had been on the sand ear-
lier in the day, had been sharp!y
questioned as to the purport of this
entry, but he was unable to explain
it. iHe thought no one except the
president could. Mr. Perkins had been
called to testify as to some other
transactions and, afer a reccas, he
waA asked to produce the check., it
was made out payable to J. P. Mor-
ran & Co. and Mr. Perkins frankly
stated It was a contribution to the
xlational republican campaign conven-
tion and had been paid to Cornellus
Eliss. Mr. Perkins said:
"'Thi payment was made after
very careful deliberation. It must
not be considered an ordinary con-
iribution to the campaign fund. It
was paid because we felt that the
a&setls of the New York Life Insur.
ance company would be jeopardized
by a democrat."
Mr. Perkins said contributions were
also made in 1900 and In 1896. As
an EIlustration, witne-, said the first
contributlwon was made in 189( by
l'reshlcer.t McCall, who 1:4 a demo-
