trust-worthy account of actual condi-

than such phenomenal advantages of lo-

industries, the only causes of growth
and improvement that usually attend
the betterment and upbuilding of com-
munities, is by means of inlividal ef-

The marriage of Miss Marcia Stock
ton May to Mr. Asa Bushnell Clarke o
Tallahassee, an event in which society
has been intensely interested for sever
al weeks, was a very brilliant affair a
the Presbyterian church Thursday even
Ing. Mr. Clarke as superintendent o
Quincy's public school, has many warm
friends here and has chosen a bride
from oneof Quincy's prominent families
and who as a young lady has been ex
ceedingly popular. The church wai
elaborately decorated for the occasion
and the color schemeof green and white
always a delightfully cool and charming
one m summer, was fully carried out.
The walls were festooned with smilax
and the aisles was spanned with green
arches suspending from which the let-
ters M. and C. wrought in white roses.
Under a cool canopy of green was sus-
pended a wedding bell of white roses,
while huge banks of palms and begonias
formed a rich background to the lovely
dust before the ceremony, "0 Prom-
ise Me" was beautifully and impres-
sively sung by Miss Lelia McFarlin.
Mrs. Ross Harris accompanied by Mr.
Gus Burt on the violin, played the
march from Lohengrin and the ushers,
Messrs. V. C. Brewer. Julian Howard,
Will Starke and Perry May took their
places near the altar. Then came two
of the bridesmaids Misses Lelia Wood-
ward and iHellen May and Dr. Uondu-
rant and Mr. Guy Winthrop of Talla-
hassee. Then came Misses Buena
Crawford and Lelia McFarlin, and
Messrs. E. C. Love and Frank May.
The bridesmaids wore exquisitely
dainty lingerie gowns with slippers and
gloves and girdles of green and carry-
ing bouquets of mainden hair fern. Mrs.
Geo. Massey, the matron of honor, a
sister of the bride, entered with Mr.
John Clarke, of Tallahassee, a brother
of the groom. Mrs. Massey wore a
lingerie gown elaborate with lace over
green silk and carried pink roses.
attie Broom May was the daintiest of
little flower girls with her basket of
fragrant flowers to strew along the
bride's path. The bride was a vision of
youthful beauty and charm as she en-
tered in an elegant bridal gown of white
chiffon cloth over silk, bearing an arm-
ful of bride's roses. She was met at
the altar by the groom, and Rev. N. P.
Quarterman pronounced the words
which made them man and wife.
A reception for the bridal party and
members of the family was held at the
home of the bride's parents. Very
many elegant presents were received
by the young couple.
Mr. and Mrs. Clarke left on the mid-
night train for the mountains of North
Carolina where they will spend their
honeymoon.--Quincy Times.
The Danger of the Rich.
A year or two ago the Times, in one
of its preachment moods, made the re-
mark that it was just as easy tor the
big rich man to overload himself and
break down as for the little poor man.
At that time prosperity was running
wildtwith an open throttle, and there
*eomed no limit to the game or the
gains. It so fell out that last year came
he discovery that a good many big rich
men had overloaded and come to a break-
Jown. The panic ensued. Just now

Opposition to this sordid and menacing
regime. To be effective that opposition
must be powerful. To be powerful it
must be grounded in principle. To be
grounded in principle appeal must be
made not so much in behalf of a man as
in behalf of a cause. That cause must
be not false but True Democracy. If
Democratic candidates chance now to
be identified with this cause, as they al-
ways should have been, so much the
better for them.
The World has sharply disagreed with
Mr. Bryan and the Democratic party in
the past. It has upheld them whenever
they represented True Democracy. It
has opposed their Populism and Social-
ism. It has nothing to retract, defend
or excuse. In common with the Demo-
cratic millions, as distinguished from
the Democratic politicians, it responds
now to the merits and demands of a
cause rather than to the claims of any
man or any machine.
Independently and firmly, voluntarily
and conscientiously, and with a keen
appreciation of its own responsibility to
the public, The World, confronted on
one side by Rooseveltism and Roose-
velt's Proxy and on the other by De-
mocracy and Mr. Bryan, hap no hesita-
tion in saying that within the limits of
True Democracy, the Democratic ticket
is entitled to the full Democratic vote.
There are planks in the Democratic
platform which we repudiate now and
as always. There are phases of Mr.
Bryan's career and there's articles in his
political creed of which we disapprove
now as always. But in the essentials of
opposition to Rooseveltism we are in
hearty accord with the Democratic plat-
In these things part and candidate
have come openly to The World's his-
eic position, to The World's well-
pwn principles, to The World's oppo-
p--on to Republicanism- opposition to
privilege and Plutocracy.
It is because The World is a truly in-

appears to have recovered to a conuid-
, rabpie degree from its long infatuation
qd to be once more in a poeltim to
render efficient service to the Republic.
Without scanning it too closely for im-
iperfections we believe that it deserves
Meoragement and is entitled to Demo-
cratic sympathy and support.

nee are sound in their opposition tojin-

tual benefit perhaps, and we are sure it
will pay you to advertise.
Senator Joseph H. Humphries, also
editor of the Manatee River Journal,
was in the city Saturday and Sunday
and made our sanctum pleasant visits.
He is a candidate for President of the
Senate, and is fully qualified in every
respect for the position. We hope he
will be the next president of the Flori-
da Senate.
In an incendiary fire at Perry, Taylor
county, last week, Editor J. E. Pounds'
Taylor County Herald was burned out,
with some insurance on the outfit and
building. The last issue was gotten out
presumably at Live Oak as nothing was
saved but an office desk and the sub-
aeription book. Brother Pound will put
in a new plant as soon as it can be pur-
chased and delivered at Perry.
Many a fiery upstart has cut off his
mose to spite his face in this good and
glorious, as well as wicked world of
ours. Would it not be well for us all to
remember 'the world to us, is just what
each one of us makes it.' And that it
weald move on if any one of us were to
be called hence, in a moment, in the
twinkling of an eye. There is no posi-
tim held, but another just as good could
be found to fill it!
One of the newest and neatest of the
Florida exchanges came to our table
this week, a weekly "The Sanford Her-
aid," Vol. 1, No. 1, E. J. Holly, man-
aging editor. It is made up like the
Tree Democrat, 12 pages, 5 columns to
the page, and is well filled with adver-
tisements and a choice selection of read-
ing matter. Success to the newest one,
and may it live long to do good work
for its home people and Floridians.
We published the article referred to
lat week. Lake City Index did the
same this week, with the following com-
ment: "The first prize article in the
Southern Ruralist, which is printed else-
where is a remarkable showing of what
a Northern man. or any other man with
mtealgmenme and industry can accom-
pli in a few years in the South. It is
a graphic proof of how independent we
are of cotton if we would only half try.
It is a powerful demonstration of what
em be accomplished by one man using
modern farm machinery. It is full of
practical value."
All cases of serious commission of
crime should be quickly punished and
justice administered to all alike,
whether the person committing such
crime be of the very highest or lowest

From the first issue of the True Dem-
ocrat it has been our polly to publish
in these columns as little of outrageous
and scandalous happenings of a general
nature as possible, believing such being
for the best interest of all concerned
and that such matter is not fit to be
sent broadcast in to the homes of this
newspaper's readers. Hence in the sev-
eral cases of outrages committed in this
State, and of such cases and trials as
the Thaw case, etc., it has been very
notable and favorably commented on by
our readers, that our newspaper had
been clean of such stuff and we have
often times been congratulated on it,
and for our clean newspaper.

Largely attended and enthusiastic
was the convention last evening of
Monteflore Lodge No. 2, Knights of
Pythias, which was presided over in an
able and graceful manner by Vice-
Chancellor William H. Tucker. The
Hon. J. Emmett Wolfe, of Pensacola,
Judge of the First Judicial Circuit, and
Grand Chancellor of the Grand Lodge of
Florida, met with a most cordial and
hearty reception. On behalf of Monte-
Gore Lodge he was welcomed to the
city by Deputy Grand Chancellor Wil-
Miam H. Sebrming and Vice-Chancellor
Tucker ; on behalf of S. S. Davis Lodge
No. 15, by Chancellor Commander El-
lott B. May, and on behalf of Dixie
Lodge No. 102, by Past Chancellor Or-
m J. Hill.
The address of the Grand Chancellor
Wolfe was eloquent and masterly, he
d.masling various subjects of interest
to the order. He praised the local
lodg for the great good they are se-
pahing on fraternal lines, for the
Impressive manner in which
their teams confer the ranks of the or-
der and for the bond of unity which
his them in close touch with each
other. Judge Wolfe is a lawyer of
meh ability, and has thousands of
warm friends in all parts of Florida.
He is accomplishing wonderful results
for Pythian Knighthood.-Jacksonville

Cured Hay Fever and Summer Cold.
A. 8. Nusbaum, Batesville, Indiana,
writes: "Last year I suffered for three
aniths with a summer cold so dis-
tresaai that It Interfered with my
belaeass. I bad many of the symptoms
of hay fever, and a doctor's prescrip-
tUaa did not reach my case, and I took
sweral medicines which seemed only
to aggravate It. Fortunately, I insisted
upon having Foley's Honey and Tar.
It quickly cured me. My wife has since
and Foley's Honey and Tar with the
eame success." Sold by all druggists. *

Thomas J. Appleyard no more thai
justice, we believe, when it says
"Hon. Thomas J. Appleyard. editor of

It is doubtful if there is another man
in the State so well qualified for the
position, and the Senators will make no
mistake if they restore him to the posi-
tion that he filled so efficiently for ten
or twelve years." The Gainesville Sun

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is Catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure is
the only positive cure now known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a consti-
tutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is taken internally, acting direct upon
the blood and mucous surfaces of the
system, thereby destroying the founda-
tion of the disease, and giving the pa-
t ient strength by building up the consti-
tution and assisting nature in doing its
work. The prop tore have so much
faith in its curative powers that they
offer One Hundred Dollars for any case
hat it fails to cure. Send for list of

PFardet of American Federationes
New York World 22d: Labor organi-
zations in this city and throughout the
country last night received an appeal
from Samuel Gompers and the Legisla-
tive Committee of the American Feder-
ation of Labor It reads in part:
"We believe that the time has now
arrived when the working people of our
'country and their friends should arouse
themselves from the lethargy that has
surrounded them for years and place
the responsibility for the lack of reme-
dial legislation where it rightfully be-
"Those responsible will strain every
effort to beguile the people because
Congress begrudgingly passed a make-
shift of a law giving Government em-
ployees engaged in hazardous occupa-
tions some semblance of relief in case
of injury or death. This act was fairly
wrung from the Sixtieth Congress in
the closing hours of the session in order
that some abor campaign thunder might
be manufactured.
"Questions of personal rights, human
liberty and economic righteousness were
ignored by the dominant party in the
session ot Congress just closed.
"The time eas arrived when the toil-
ers of our country should rise to the oc-
casion; to meet the momentous condi-
Lions which confront not only them but
ill our people, and exercise their full
rightn as workers, as Aen and as citi-
zens of our common country."
The appeal virtually calls upon work-
ngmen to support Bryan for President.
The Yonkers Federation of Labor by
vote of 21 to 2 indorsed the position
of Samuel Gompers at its meeting last
night respecting William J. Bryan and
he Denver platform. The Federation
s also preparing to make a campaign
contribution, as suggested by the A. F.
of L. head. The local federation repre-
sents about 6.000 labor men in Yonkers.
