eow the Treasury Vaults at Wash.

Not a dollar has ever been taken
from the United States Treasury by
force. Perhaps the nearest approach
to looting the vaults of the treasury
was the time Martin Broadfoot had his
plans about perfected. This was hack
in the eighties, and the plan was to
get into the building by means of the
great sewer which runs under and near
the treasury and is known as the Fif-


teenth street sewer and which grow
larger as it enters the Potomac abou
three-quarters of a mile from the Whit
House.
Broadfoot's plan, as developed after?
his arrest, was to get into the building
crack the safes and place the money i
large rubber bags and float therm dowi
the sewer to the Potomac, where hi
pals would be in waiting. These bag
were found in his room when he w:i
arrested, and secret service men na'

river the journey to the treasury coulh
be made by keeping a sharp lhokl

M oeeW This was the only
si' y well laid plot ever made to loot
the treasury, and just why Broadfool
was never given a trial has never beer
known to the public.
He was an intelligent man, and sus.
icion was first aroused against him by
his frequent visits to the money room@
and vaults and by the questions he ask-
ed watchmen and messengers as to the
hours of duty. when the time locks
closed and what time they opened, and
all such questions. That he could have

who say that it would have been easy
work. The most difficult part of the loe
would have been in getting away with
the money and bullion, for it would
have required hard work to secure it
and ot away. About the only chance
woo have been to bury it somewhere
in Virginia, for if it had been placed on
boats it would have been easy to recov-
er it.-
It is the opinion of the secret service
men that many celebrated cracksmen
have from time to time contemplated
the conversion of a few million treasury
notes to their own use, but after care-
ful study they have decided that the un-
dertaking was too colossal in character.
Secretary Folger when he assumed
bhis duties was not slow in deciding that
the treasury was not properly guarded.
There was not an electric alarm in the
building, the watchmen were isolated
and had no facilities for calling help, and
the safes were of the old-time lock and
0.key sort, scattered almost all over the
big building. The secretary went to
work to bring about a proper condition
of affairs. He had the watch system
completely changed and re-organised,
puttt them under the strictest discip-
line. Elaborate and extensive alarm
systems were installed. The old safes
were replaced by modern steel affairs
with time locks and intricate combina-
tio The gold and silver vaults were
fitted with steel casings and time locks,
different parts of the combination being
dstributed among various officials, so
that the vaults could be opened only
with the coeerted action of all of them,

Town Better Than Any One Pan.
"Every town has a few disgruntled
fellows who delight to adversely criti-
cise everything and everybody. It never
occurs to such people that they are liv-
ing in a town that is infinitely better
than they are. It also seems never to
occur to them that there is a wide-open
exit through which they may pass. and
forever shake the dust of the good old
town from their feet. A village in Illi-
nois had more than an abundance of this
class of slanderers, and decided to get
rid of them, or to at least seal their
tongues. The mayor ordered this pla-
card printed: 'This town, as a whole, is
better than any man in it; it is a
good and the who says it is
not is er a llar or' ftIt. If you hear
anybody speaking in an evil tongue of
this dear old place which was estab-
lished by our forefathers please report
to the mayor's office and his name will
be sent to every good citizen of the
town whose duty it shall be to look upon
the slanderer with contempt.' These
placards were placed in all public places,
and it is needless to say that they pro-
duced a most wonderful effect tor (rood.
The individual who says mean things
about the town or community in which
he lives is usually of that class whose
'words are doubted' by the people who
know him, but when he turns his bat-
teries of profanity loose in the presence
of strangers, and denounces his home
town, it leaves a bad impression, and is
often detrimental to the commercial in-
terests of the town. "--ernandina Re-

The average attendance at roll calls
(luring thelpast year was 77 1-2 per cent,
about two per cent better than
last year, and it would have
been better if our individual fire bells
had been in better shape. The large
bell could not be heard well for some
time and was the cause of several mem-
bers being absent from fires. We have
had the large bell raised and now it can
be heard more distinctly. Several mem-
bers average is lower than usual, owing
to the fact that fires occurred while
they were out of town, which counts
against them just as if they were here
and did not attend.
There were 55 roll calls since last re-
port; from fires, 29; from called meet-
ings, 3; from practices, 11. from regu-
lar meetings, 12. At no regular meet-
ing during the past year was there less
than a quorum, 6 men and 1 officer,
present and at only two *regular meet-

By percentage of attendance such as

tendance of 56 the member was present
at 64 roll calls. 27-37 means that there
were only 87 roll calls after the member

'Taint no use o' looking' blue,
Other folks have trouble, too.
Though you haven't got a cent,
Lookin'blue don't pay the rent.
Lookin' blue is mighty mean,
Though somebody's got a lien
On the house you're livin' in,
Looking' blue is an awful sin.
Looking' blue wont pay the debt,
Shake yourself, get up and get!
'Taint no use o' looking blue;
Other tolks worse off than you.
Keep your trouble out o' sight.
Other folks hain't got no right
To be afflicted with your g;roan,
They have troubles of their own.
Lookin' blue keeps sunshine out,
Dwarfs your life from inside out,
Never helped mankind a bit,
Don't you think you better quit?
Give your better self a place,
Show the world a smilin' face;
Then you soon will feel it too,
That the world has smiles for you.


Lookin' blue won't help you higher.
Lookin' blue will not inspire,
Looking' blue shuts up tho scroll,
Hides the music in your soul
Let the sunshine break the ties,
Then the music will arise;
Then the world will catch the strain
Echo back to you again.

Why Publisher Are Always Rich.
The Miami Metropolis tells one reason
why as follows:
It has always been a great mystery
to people who don't understand the
newspaper business, how the publishers
always gft rich quick-if not quick-
sure. We'llexplain how that as, just
for the enlihhtment of our many read-
ers. In the first place, a child is born
in Miami. The standing physician gets
$2"5, the editor gives the youngster and
the "proud parent" a send-off in the
paper for which the editor gets $0. It
is christened. The minister gets $10,
the editor gets his $00 It grows up and
marries; the editor publishes a long-
winded, flowery article, and tells a doz-
en lies about the blushing bride; the
minister gets $10 and a piece of cake
and the editor gets $000.
In the course of time the once child
dies, the doctor gets from $25 to $100
anyhow, the editor publishes a death
notice and an obituary twocolumns lone,
lodge and society resolutions by the
bushel, a lot of poetry and a free card
of thanks and gets $0,000. And up
then, ye who read, and see all the edi-
tor got out of that one baby from the
time of its birth till its death, and then
wonder why editors are always rich.
Add up the number of births and deaths
and judge for yourself what our income
is.-Miami Metropolis.

Rev. J. Edgar Wilseon Peaded
As this is Mr. Wilson's last year on
the Tallahamsee District, and he will
have to leave Tallahassee in December,
the Methodist of the city, wishing to
manifest to him and his family some ex-
pression of the love and esteem in which
they are held, decided to give them, as
the children would sa a "surpse
party." So on Tuesday afternoon about
orty ladies gathered at the District
Parsonage to welcome Mrs. Wilson
tome after an absence of several
month; They spent a delightful after-
noon in conversation and the singing of
iymns, Miss Onie Zachary, presiding
at the organ, after which Rev. Mr. Wil-
on made a neat little speech express-
ng the appreciation felt by himself and
ine. andin which he said many nice
things of Tallahassee and its people. He
closed v t'l a prayer invoking God's
blessings upon them.
Everyone went home happy, leaving
at the parsonage a substantial evidence
if their esteem.

Dear friend:
Chipped beef is nice to buy, mama
says, because there is no bone in it.
Last night mama was real tired, and
didn't feel like building a big fire. She
sent me to the grocery for a can of chip-
ped beef. and when I got back she had
some bread and butter and sweet milk
on the table, and we had a real nice
supper, and it didn't cost very much.
A whole 1 pound can of chipped beef
costs only 25 cents.
Your friend.

Kodol will digest it.


You need a sufficient amount of
good wholesome food and more than
this you need to fully digest It.
Else you can't gain strength, nor
can you strengthen your stomach if
it is weak.
You must eat in order to live and
maintain strength.
You must not diet, because the
body requires that you eat a suffic-
lent amount of food regularly.
But this food must be digested,
and it must be digested thoroughly.
When the stomach can't do it,
you must take something that will
help the stomach.
The proper way to do is to eat
what you want, and let Kodol di-
gest the food.

Nothing else can do this. When
the stomach is weak it needs help;
you must help it by giving it rest,
and Kodol will dlo that.


Our Guarantee
Go to your druggist today, and
purchase a dollar bottle, and if you
can honestly say, that you did not
receive any benefits from it, after
using the entire bottle, the drug-
gist will refund your money to you
without question or delay.
We will pay the druggist the price
of the bottle purchased by you.
This offer applies to the large
bottle only and to but one in a
family.

We could not afford to make such
an offer, unless we positively knew
what Kodol will do for you.
It would bankrupt us.
The dollar bottle contains 2% time
as much as the fifty cent bottle.

The Old Nan.
Bow low your head, do reverence to
the old man once like you. The vicissi-
tudes of life have silvered his hair, and
changed the round, merry face to the
visage before you Once the heart beat
with aspiration, crushed by disappoint-
ment as yours, perhaps, are destined to
be. Once that form stalked proudly
through gay scees of pleasure, the
beau ideal of grace; now the hand of
Time that withers the flowers of yes-
terday has bent that figure and destroy-
ed that noble carriage. Once. at your
age, he possessed the thousand thoughts
that pass through your brain, now wish-
ing to accomplish deeds equal to a nook
in fame, anon imagining life a dream,
that the sooner he awoke the better.
But he has lived the dream very near
through; the time to awaken is very
near at hand, his eye never kindles at
old deeds of daring andthe hand takes
a firmer grasp of the staff. Bow low
your head, boy, as you would in your
old age be reverenced.-The Fraternal
Record.

Jacksonville, Fla., July 24, 1908.
BOMBAY VAPOR CO., 408 W. Forsyth St., City.
Gentlemen: I beg to advise that I have used the Vapor
which you manufacture and find it to be one of the finest
things I have ever used for polishing furniture, floors, etc. A
It also acts as a splendid insecticide and the odor is not J DC A VY
at all offensive. I have alw found it useful for spraying into
chicken houses and on live stock to keep the flies away. I
predict it will have a big sale in this city. Tallahassee, Fla.
Very truly, H. H. RICHARDSON.
