After Four Days' Suffering he
Passes Away


TestimPoial of the Highb Esteem in
Which He was Held.'

Friday night at 8 o'clock death
came to relieve B. A. Meginniss of
earthly sufferings. The news spread..
over the city rapidly and everywhere
there was the deepest sorrow.
On Sunday morning .before he
went with his family to St. Teresa.
]etprning Monday he was slightly
indisposed, but would, not, leave the
bank. Monday night he had a chill
and was'real ill, but returned to -the
bank at the regular hour Tuesday
,ainst the protest of his physician
who felt alarmed about him. About-
2 o'clock p. m. he had to go home in
a carriage and send for the physician.
When the latter reached him he was
suffering with a congestive chill.
This was relieved, but a complication
of other troubles set in and from the
first there was no hope.
Mrs, Meginniss was sent for, and
came with all possible haste from St.
Teresa. Then the children were
next sent for, and all reached him in
time. to be recognized, except Mrs.
Arbuckle, a married daughter, who
re.sides ih Virginia. She reached here
in time for the funeral.
Three physicians and a trained
nurse were with him all the time, and
everything that human kindness and
medical skill could suggest was done,
but to no avail. After four days of
the most intense suffering he passed
When there was no lingeting hope
the family physician, Dr. Palmer,
felt called upon .to infoim him, but
as soon as the subject was broached
th patient relieved- the embarrass-
ment of the situation .jby saying that
he realized his condition. In fact
the carefulness with which he ar-
ranged-all hi. business before taking
to bed leaves the impression that he
was the first to know it.
"Everything is clear, not
before me," were about the last
words uttered by him, unconscious-
ness soon coming oh, from- which he
never rallied. -'
The deceasec had many warm
friends throughout the State.
Among the telegrams and letters of
condolence received by Mrs. Megin-
nies were deep expressions of sorrow
from United States Senator Talia-
ferro, State Senator and Mrs. C. B;
Rogers, Mrs. and Mrs. B. B. McCaa,
of Jacksonville, and innumerable
others from nearly every section of
the State.
Something of the esteem in which
he was held at home will be seen by
the following expressions which have
been sent to this office for publica-
tion. .

Smith, of North Carolina, and after
his death went to New Berne and
married Dr. Peter Barton Custis,
who had just graduated in medicine
from the University of Pennsylvania,
and was barely of age, his bride be-
ing a year younger. Five children
were born to them, two died in in-

six years old, and two sons survive

Republican Party in a Great Stew Ov-
er Campaign Fund.

Washington, July 21-The Presi-
dent seems to be sticking to his op-
portunist policy in regard to China,
hoping against hope that something
will turn up which will free himr
from the responsibility of callin-
Congress in extra session. Even.
Minister Conger's dispatch begging
aid to save him against the "Chinese
troops," has had no effect. lie fol-
lowed a somewhat similar policy ir
regard to the Philippines last sum-
mer, when he put off calling the
troops authorized by Congress inte
service until the "rebellion" their<
had gathered such tremendous head--
way. At present, he is following
the lines laid down in Mark Hanna's
interview, alleging that no extra ses-
sion of Congress was necessary. It
is alleged by his supporters that he
has plenty of money with which to
conduct imperial military operations
in 'hina, in conjunction with hi:-
1brother sovereigns, and that the
number of troops needed to make up
the American quota can probably be
spared without increasing th(
strength of the army. In regard t(.
the first excuse, it is, of course, an
historical fact that there have beer
several periods in Anglo-Saxon his-
tory when only the need of money
caused the king to call parliament in
session. The question of the num-
ber of troops required is still doubt-
ful. but it is surely the privilege as,
well as the duty of Congress to con-
sider the question and to decide.
whether or not an increase is needed
in order to enable the Occident tco
meet the appalling outbreak of the-
Orient. When the climax has finally
Leen reached, and the President is
driven to resort to Constitutiona!, as
compared with Imperial action there
,must. be. long and 'disastrous delay.
before anything effective can be ac-
complished. But it is evident that.
any risk of that kind will be taken,.
and that the lives of ojir little- formeT-
in China will be held lightly, rather
than that*anything shall be allowed
to interfere with the play of politics
on the front porch.
The Republicans are a good dear
worried over their lack of campaign
funds. A number of leading menr
on the campaign committees 'have
been out upon political foraging ex-
peditions, and it is hinted that they
have not met with the success whiLeb
they expected, or which they thought
was really necessary. Certain
sources of campaign funds, which
have been tapped before and' have-
flowed freely, have this summer
given forth at best but a meagre and
attenuated stream, not sufficient in
volume to furnish' the desired motor-
power to turn the wheels of the ma-
chine. There have been complaints
among the leaders of an indifference
on-the part of many whilom contrib-
utors, which, they feel, smacks oi
base ingratitude. The trusts and
manufacturers who are flourishing
under the Dingley bill are loth, in
many instances, it is said, to ren-
der due thanks to the party which
made their prosperity possible. See-
ing no immediate'prospect of a repeal
of that act, they are inclined to with-
hold their contributions and to lose
interest in the campaign. The
banks also, having received much
desired financial legislation, and be-
lieving it is secure for sometime to.
come, are backward in putting up>
cash ,for political purposes. Alto-
gether, it is probable that the Repub-

How One Was Started In the Na-
tional Zoo at Washington.
In The Century Ernest Seton-Thomp-
son, who used to be known as "Wolf"
Thompson from his familiarity with
this particular form of wild animal,
tells how he started a wolf serenade -at
the National zoo in Washington.
While making these notes among the
animals of the Washington- zoo I used
to go at all hours to see them. Late
one evening I sat down with some
friends by the wolf cages in the light
of a full moon. I said. "Let .us see
whether they have forgotten the music
of the west." I put up my hands to
my mouth and howled the hunting
song of the pack. The first to respond
was a coyote from the plains. He re-
membered the wild music that used to
mean pickings for him. He put up his
muzzle and "'yap yapped" and howled.
Next an old wolf from Colorado came
running out, looked and listened -ear-
nestly, and. raising her snout to. the
proper angle, she took up the wild
strain.. Then all the others came run-
ning out and joined In. each according
to his voice, but all singing that wild
wolf hunting song, howling and yell-
ing, rolling and swelling, high and low,
in the cadence of the hills.
They sang me their song of the west, the west;
They set all my feelings aglow;
They stirred up my heart with their artless art
And their song of the long ago.
Again and again they raised the cry
and sang in chorus till the whole moon-
lit wood around was ringing with the
grim refrain-until the inhabitans in
the near city must have thought all
the beasts broken loose. But at length
their clamor died away. and the wolves
returned, slunk back to their dena, si-
lently, sadly. I thought, as though they
realized that they could indeed join In
the hunting song as of old, but their
hunting days were forever dor.-

"There were seven of the 12." said

wouldn't let the rest of us sleep. When-
ever we dropped into a doze, they came
around and shook us till we were wide

"And-,you had to submit, I suppose.
for they constituted the majority?"
"Yes. they were the rousing majori-

a pensive attempt to be facetious.-Chi-

Moon Views From the Grant Tomb.
Persons of romantic temperament
have discovered that the best place in
New York from which to watch the
moon rising in the east Is the porch off
General Grant's tomb. Standing, as it
does. away from all other buildings,
at the highest part of the Riverside
drive, with the beautiful Hudson river
flowing softly along a hundred feet be-
low, the noble edifice in which lies the
hero is as full of poetical charm as.the
Alhambra itself.- As the moon rises
one can see the rays touching column
after column of tie mausoleum, throw-
ing into deeper shadow the recesses
and giving the whole building an ethe-
real aspect which Is strikingly beauti-
ful. Young couples who are strolling
along the drive make It a point to go
up to the tomb to watch the moon rise,
and the idea Is becoming so popular
that the charm of solitude at least has
certainly departed.-New York Letter
in Pittsburg Dispatch.
IM Supposition.
A -philanthropic lady of Pacific
Heights, one of the sort of superior
alum raisers shown up In "Fables In

tle boy who was swearing roundly.
She seized him at once and gave him
a good shaking, adding: "You ought to
be ashamed of yourself! I never heard
such language since the day I was
born!" The boy into whose desolate
home she had just been bringing light
pulled himself loose. "Yes'm," he said,
"I spose dere was a good deal o'
cuisin de day yqu was born."-San

Pllkerton Won the Race.
At one of the regaftas of the Nation-
al Association of American Oarsmen
during the early nineties James Pilker-
ton, for many years the champion scul-
ler of America, was matched to row
double against another team. He and
his mate were the champions; and the
general belief was that they would win
without effort. But the night before
the regatta public opinion suddenly
and mysteriously changed. Mr. Pil-
kerton knew that this was not caused
, by any new development of strength
in his opponent or any loss of skill on
his own part. After making some quiet
inquiries he discovered that there was
talk of his rowing tnate having been
bought up by the other side and of an
arrangement to throw the race.
He didn't say anything about his sus-
picions, but when the two men were
seated in the shell and were well out
into the deep water he leaned over to
his mate and said:
"Look her, you blooming cutthroat!
You've got to swim, drown or win this
race! You know me!" H-Ie won.-Sat-
urday Evening Post.

The Fearfal Devil of the mioes-
and HIMl Prinelsal Wife.
Siva Is both typical of destruction
and of reproduction. But the latter at-
tribute was doubtless a later addition
to the sum of his qualities. The orig-
Inal conception of this deity was that
of a power delighting in destruction,
In the achievement of physical eviltand
wrong and In hurling death and-devas-
tation upon thie people and their land.
He is represented in-the sacred books
of the. Hindoos as "the terrible destroy-
er," "the one who delights in the de-
struction of men." But-in all this -there
is no whisper as yet of any moral qual-
ities of eviL The conception is entirely
one of physical power, Used with the
utmost malevolence and injustice
against men. -
Along with his principal wife, who
Is variously called .Devy, Durga, Uma
and Kali, he is portrayed as the incar-
nation of physical .evil. wrong, .injus-
tice or misfortune. In the "Puranas"
Siva is described as wandering about
surrounded by ghosts and goblins, in-
ebriated, naked and with disheveled
hair, covered with the ashes of a fu-
neral pile, ornamentedd with human
skulls and bones, sometimes laughing
and sometimes -crying. Devi, his con-
sort, is represented with a hideous and
a terrible countenance streaming with
blood, encircled with snakes, hung
round with skulls and human heads
and in all respects resembling a fury
rather than a goddess. The only pleas-
ure which Siva and Devi feel is when
their altars are drenched with blood,
which, of course, could not be shed
without the destruction of some form
of life.-Westminster Review.

An Italian Who Dem.anded Music of
the Street Car Conductor.
The conductor ot a Brooklyn trolley
car had a peculiar; experience with an
Italian one night last week. The
Italian wanted to ride with music
thrown in for his 5 cents. A passenger
described the incident:
"I boarded the car with six other pas-
sengers, including an Italian, at the
suburban end of the ruad on one of the
late trips. The car had gone a shert
distance when the conductor began to
collect the fares. The Italian was on
the rear seat, and his money was col-
lected last. Everything went well.for
about half a mile, when the Italian
jumped to his feet and waved his
hands at the conductor. -The icoaductor
went to the excited man arid asked him
what the trouble was. The Italian
"'Me want n:y fiva cenfa back.'
"The conductor told him that he
could not have.the molley. The Italian
'Every boda getta' music for a fiva
centa; me no got.' .
- "The conductor grasped the situation
at once, and, seeing that he was ac-
cused of 'nickeling,'. started to clear
himself. He showed the Italian that
. there were seven. passengers o-a the
car and that that number of fares wese
registered.. He also explained why the
Italian did not get any music for his
nickel. He said:
"'While collecting the fares in the
front part of the car I rang up one
fare too much, and if I rang-up yours I
would be out 5 cents.'
"While this explanation was going on
the man from Italy was still shouting
for his 'fiva cents,' and did not stop
until he got off the car farther down,
still jabbering at the conductor."-New
York Sun.

A Quarter Which a Beggar Was Not
to Spend For. Drtmk.
"For God's sake give a hungry man a
little money to buy something to eat,"
entreated a beggar of a woman in
.West Third street. The beggar was
by no means absentminded, but the in-
div.idual to whom he spoke was. .She
passed on several yards without.notic-
ing him, when it suddenly occurred
to her that to a man, perhaps starving,
who had asked bread she had given a

stone, or at least a stony .stare. So
she took 25 cents from her purse and,
turning quickly, hurried after a man
passing down the street'
"Here," she said, touching him on
the arm; "here is a quarter for you,
and I hope you will not buy liquor with
Before the astonished person to
whom she had'"given the money could
utter a word she had departed.
"I am sure I don't know why young
women should run after me on the
street to give me money," ejaculated
the man, "but I will spend it for drink
since she particularly requested me
not to."
A few steps farther on he was met
by a seedy looking fellow who began,
"For God's sake, give," etc.
"Yes, my man, I think this was in-
tended for you. A young woman sent
it to. you, but you are not to spend it
for drink." And he passed on with a
light heart, while the beggar tested
the quarter suspiciously, casting an
eager glance ahead at the nearest sa-
loon.-New York Press.

There is a young man In Brooklyn
who needs a tonic of some kind, else
-he would not have failed to embrace as
attractive an opportunity as ever
comes to one. He accompanied a
charming young woman to a church
wedding on the park slope and arrived
at about the time the bride and groom
were due. The young woman with
him was dressed somewhat as the
bridd was expected to be lad, and as
she walked up the main aisle of the
church with her escort the organist
began to play the wedding march. The

The Real Jan Ridd.
A writer, giving some personal mem-
ories of Mr. Blackmore, says he could
not bear with patience any praise of
"Loma Doone." All the world has been
told.that "Lorna Doone" is his greatest
work;- the work in which his fame will
live, "but," says the. writer, "strange
to say, in as far as his gentle nature
w;s capable of irritation he almost
resented the mere mention of the book.
Once I inquired of him was there a

"'Oh, yes,' he said, filling his pipe
"'And was he the glorious chap he's
made out to be in "Lorna Doone?"'

The question of the removal
,of the State Capital from Talla-
bhassee is now engaging the at-
tention of the people of the
'State of Florida, and the tax-
-payers should become fully ac-
.quainted with the facts as to the
actual condition of the valuable
,Capitol Building now owned
.by the State, in order that they
may act advisedly.
A true statement of the ex-
isting conditions will be suffi-
,cient to convince the tax-payers
''of this State of the utter lack
.of necessity, at this time, for a
,-new State House, and that it
Should be a useless waste of the
Shard earned money of the toil-
,/ ing masses of Florida to erect
an unnecessary building, at
great expense, which would
'have to be met by- the issue of
interest bearing State Bonds.
The Constitution of Florida
provides that "The seat of gov-
,ernment shall be at the City of
"Tallahassee, in the County of
,Leon." Tallahassee was estab-
,ished as the Capital of the
'Territory of Florida in 1823, the
location having been chosen by
a commission, consisting of Dr.
:W. H. Simmons and John L.
i Williams, who were appointed
Iby the Government for that pur-

tractive ,sections of the State.
The building is of brick, all the
oeutide walls being more than
two feet thick and the inside
partition walls are of solid brick
~ --e .- -

this floor there is an immense
absolutely. fire-proof vault, built
by one of the leading Safe Com-
panies, in which is stored all of
the valuable land records. On
the second floor, which has a
wide hall and rotunda, there
are nine offices, and the Supreme
Court Room and Library, the
latter containing over 8,000 val-
uable books, with space for sev-
eral thousand more in the con-
sultation rooms. In the Treas-
urer's office, which is situated
on this floor, there is a large ab-
solutely fire-proof vault, se,,
curely built from the ground up,
containing a splendid chilled
steel safe, with time lock, which
affords ample protection for all
the funds and securities of the
State: The third floor contains
a large open hall or rotunda,
two large offices, a large library,
divided so as to be .sed for
committee rooms, and in addi-
tion the Senate Chamber and
Hall for the use of the House of
Representatives. There are also
-in use in the building fifteen
fire-proof safes which are suffi-
cient for the security of the val-
uable records and papers of the
different offices. 'These. offices
and rooms afford ample accom-
modations for the State Officers
and the Supreme Court. The
Legislative Halls are more than
large enough for the two delib-
erative bodies to use with every
The surroundings and environ-
ments at Tallahassee are healthy,
elevating and delightful. Three
hotels and numerous private
boarding houses furnish ample
accommodations for all demands,
at very moderate rates. No
more appropriate and' satisfac-
tory place can be found in the
State for the Capital.' To re-
move the seat of government
will cost the tax-payers at least
a million dollars, for which
amount at least, and perhaps
much more, State Bonds will
have to be issued, the interest to
be paid on which amount for
the first year. alone, properly
expended for improvements to
the present building, would give
the Legislature all the committee
rooms desired. If bonds are
issued by an amendment to the
Constitution the interest and
principal would in the end
amount to double the amount of
the issue of bonds, all of which
must be paid by the tax-payers.
If the Capital is to be removed,
the heavy expense incident
thereto and the erection of a new
building with suitable grounds,
will have to be met by issuing

State Bonds, orby the'levy of a
tax to raise the amount. If it is
to be raised bp'taxation a levy
of at least $300,000.00 per annum

from the tya payers. This will

reason for

abandoning and destroying the

State, and meeting all her 'de-

rooms may be desired for two

needed these rooms can be sup-
plied at small cost, without in-
curring a heavy burden, and
without giving up the present
valuable property of the State.
It should be evident from the
foregoing statement of the actual
condition of the Capitol Build-
ing that there is absolutely no
foundation for the claim that the
building is inadequate and un-
safe, or that the books and rec-
ords are in danger of destruction

find some real ground upon

Tallahassee is in mourniLg! Her
sorrow is deeper than it has been for
a long time. And the mourning is
not confined to this city, for Benjamin
Andrews Meginniss' influence was
bounded only by the limits of his
wide acquaintance, and wherever
that influence (always for good) has
been felt.there today is mourning.
He was unostentatious, but firm in
his convictions. He never urged his
views upon others, but there was an
irresistable attractive force about the
man that carried conviction to his
fellow men and inspired in them the
utmost confidence. On their death
beds, when casting about for an ab-
solutely reliable man in whose hands
to leave the property of their wives
and children, they. turned to him
with a .wonderful unanimity, and
never .was the trust betrayed or
in the slightest abused.
In the mercantile business for
himself years ago he failed. Hlis
sympathetic nature and goodness to
others simply overwhelmed him and
drove his business to the wall, but
every obligation was subsequently
met. In managing the affairs of
others, however, his efforts were
everywhere crowned with success.
When the Capital City. Bank wag
organized he was made cashier.
People had every confidence in him
and it was a success from the start,
doubling its capital in a few years.
He held that position until, his death.
He was also a member and president
of the City Council for a number of
years, and served in the same capac-
ity on the Board of Public Instruc-.
tion until he resigned. lie was also
a prominent Odd Fellow, being
Grand Treasurer for the State organ'
ization and Secretary of the.Grand
Encampment of the same society.

Under the above caption the
Times-Union and Citizen of recent
date contains the following sensible
and forceful expressions:
"Really, we are getting a little bit
weary of having those ghastly, starv-
ing Hindoos thrust upon our obser-
vation at every turn, in circulars,
handbills, envelopes. The hapless
wretches are not a subject for wit or
merriment, and hartless, indeed,
would he be who could view their
sufferings without ,concern. But we
protest our inalienable right to sleep
through the night without awaken-
ing at midnight to behold those
grinning, fleshless specters of starva-
tion, in all the attitudes perpetuated
by the remorseless photograph.
"Charity begins at home was not
written in the Bible, but it is one of
the soundest maxims of human con-
duct. There are millions today in

land factories, the Pennsylvania
mines, who, though they have food

in arithmetical ratio. Arhe toiling,

any obligation to oppose, by gifts of
their hard-earned substance, the.
working of the inexorable laws of
population and political economy?
"The English Government monop-
oly of- opium grinds the faces of the
poor. The hapless ryots who pro-
duce and sell the opium to the gov-
ernment for less than half its value
are as truly slaves as. ever were the
negroes of our Southern States. But
it is opium or nothing. They are a
feckless race. With a soil of fabu-
lous fertility, but without the enter-
prise and self-helpfulness of the Chi-
nese, they starve like 'dumb driven
cattle;' lie down and breathe out their
inoffensive, helpless lives in the rich-
est country on the footstool. They
have not even force enough to clear
up the jungles and kill off the tigers.
With a population four times as
dense to the square mile as the Uni-
ted States, they have not rid their

Is difficult to. explainM A few dozen
logs will baome wedged for an instant

less time than it takes me to tell it
hundreds of others will come swooping
dawn and pack themselves in an intri-
cate, close knit span,. reaching from
bank to bank, and almost as solid as
a rock. The force they exert is some-
thing marvelous.* During one jam in
my section I saw a lqt'of logs plunge
under the edge of the blockade, and a
few seconds later they pushed 'their
way up through the very middle of
the pack., tossing timbers as big-
around as a man's waist into the air
like so many toothpicks. The' noise
they made as they drove through the
mass was simply deafening. :It sound-
ed as if the solid earth was being torn
up by Its foundations. When the logs
passed under the'jam, they were evi-
dently caught in such a way as to
still further obstruct the imprisoned
stream and were hurled upward with
all the irresistible'energy of millions of
gallons of rushing water.
"The breaking of a jam Is a very
ticklish operation- and .seems to be
largely a matter of instinct with old
rivermen. The lines and angles of

plicated that the best engineer in the
world is apt to go wrong in indicating
-the proper point of attack. A veteran
lumberman, on the contrary, will often
take a long look- at the mass and then
point out the 'key log.' The key log
is the timber on which the strain cen-
ters, and when it is blown out or pried
out, the pack, in almost every instance,
will break up of itself. I had an old
'fellow in my employ a few years ago
who could locate a key log nine times
out of ten. He couldn't read or write,
knew nothing about engineering and
was unable to explain how he arrived
at his conclusions. He said it 'came

JULY 26,



walking in the twilight about the
prison yard, Damon with a few-
friends strolled to the edge of the
ditch opposite the point he had se-
lected and sat down. The janitor a
few minutes before had finished
lighting his lamps and gone out. No
other blue uniformed man would
"enter the gate before the next morn-
Not long after they had taken their
seats-the guard going east and the
one going west started from the gate
at the same time, of course their
backs were turned to each other.
This was what Damon was waiting
for. When they had nearly reached
the other end of their beats Damon
jumped into the ditch, which here
was about six feet deep, and hugged
the apposite banks. -There he dug
some holes with his case-knife to fa-
cilitate climbing out, and awaited the
signal which one of his comrades was
to make. As soon as it came he
sprang out of the ditch and made a
zish to the fence. There; was a
wheelbarrow near the fence and Da-
mon thought he could lie under it and
dig. To his consternation he found


section. The next week he, with
Captain John B. Castleman, of whose
company, in the Second Kentucky,
he was a member (the same Castle-
man who was colonel of the First
Kentucky in the war with Spain),
and Lieutenant Mumford were on
their way to Evansville, Ind, to per-
fect an organization there. By the
,merest accident they were arrested
at Sullivan, Ind., their true charac-

4S^ aanytl4u of interest that

Sseewith end you an ac-
S b-apes from two Northern
S Rnhme--th. first of which came
w"un my personal knowledge.
1-was a member of company C,
Fortieth Alab ma infantry, and, with
O3&ersof my regiment, was captured
ea Lookout mountain Tennessee,
)November, 1863, and carried to
Rock Island prison, where, with
abo;t 10,000 other prisoners, I re-
mained until General Lee on the
eastside had surrendered, "when I
was exchanged with 1000 others for
Yankee prisoners on the west side
of the Mississippi river. In June,
1864, the prison gates opEned to re-
ceive a lot of Morgan's men, who
were captured on his last raid into
Kentucky, among whom was Henry
G. Damon, a boy just from Tallahas-
see, Fla., who is now a resident of
this town, Corsicana, Texas.
It is a fact, about which there is
not much dispute, that Rock Island
was one of the strongest prisons in
the North. Although probably at
Jeast 25,000 Confederates were from
first to last confined there during the
last two years of, the war, be-
lieved that not more than ten ever
escaped. -Among them were two
others, one another Florida boy, C.
C. Heming, now a banker in Gaines-
ville, Texas, who walked out in
broad daylight, clad in a Federal
soldier's uniform. The other was an
Alabama boy, John. T. McInnis, of
Sumter county, Alabama, who also
walked out with a Federal uniform
on, while the Federals were return-
ing to their quarters one evening
after roll call in the prison. He is
a very prominent citizen now in
Eastern Mississippi, and I think his
postoffice is Meridian.
The prison was a rectangular in-
closure, covering about twenty acres,
surrounded by a whitewashed fence
twelve feet high. Guards were sta-
tione-.l on a platform attached to the
fence on the outside three feet be-
low the top. The dead line was a
ditch about twenty feet from the
fence, and from four to eight feet
deep, in most places dug down to the
solid rock. The prisoners had to
stop on their side of the ditch on
penalty of being shot. Various
plans of escape were concocted,
nearly all of which came to grief.
Tunneling for awhile was the favor-
ite method, but that always ended
in failure, for the reason that the
tunnel had to be not less than sixty
feet long and extend under the ditch,
which as above stated, was nearly
everywhere dug down to the solid
rock. A charge might have been
successfully attempted, but getting
off the island was the- great trouble.
After duly considering all the
chances, Damon .concluded he
would try the simplest plan, which
was toget to. the fence and dig a
hole under it. This plan had all the
charms of novelty, for out of that
host of prisoners up to. that time no
one had ever made their escape that
way, except into. eternity. He chose
for his attempt a point near the
south gate, about fifteen feet from a'
large reflecting lamp that threw a
bright light all around. This seemed
to make the attempt more hazardous,
if possible, but Damon had in his fa-
vor the fact that the guards on the
fence had longer beats near the gate
than elsewhere. One evening in
September while the prisoners were

for you, said four different phys-
cis, but I still had sufficient left to
try Dr. Miles' New Heart Cure, as it
was highly recommended to me. I
had suffered for years with heart
trouble; so bad was my case I was
given up to die several times. Had
severe palpitation, short breath and
muclt-pain about the heart, fluttering
and smothering spells, but Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure gave me prompt relief
and finally a permanent cure.

it too low for such a purpose, so while
the guard was above him, like an os-
trich he concealed his shoulders un-
der-the wheelbarrow, and when the
guard was at the far end of the beat
he came out and dug. In about half
an hour the hole was large enough
and then he disappeared from the
view of the friends who were watch-
ing him.- The next morning, when
from the prisoners' side of the dead
line I saw the-, hole that Damon had
crawled through. around which were
gathered several Yankee officers and
privates, I wondered was pos-
sible for a man to squeeze through so
small an opening. I afterward as-
certained that the man was a boy of
18, five feet four inches high, whose
weight had:been reduced by sickness
to ninety pounds.
After I met Comrade Damon in
Corsicana he told me that on the out-
side the danger seemed to have only
fairly begun. He found himself fifty
feet from the guard house, in front of
which was a large lamp, and not more
than ten steps away soldiers were
passing, who, if they had glanced inm
his direction, could easily have seen
him against the whitewashed fence.
Hastily crawling down -the fence, he
soon came to a large bush,, behiv*
which he crouched until the beating
of tattoo. This, was the signal for
all soldiers to get to their quarters,
and then he breathed more easily.
The next problem was to get away
from the fence. The moon was at
its full, and walking the platform
above him was a sentinel, whose slow,

Damon stole away from the fence.
One of them, however, heard him,
and turning round and seeing a man
walking off, brought his gun down
and cocked it, but fortunately did not
carry out. his intention to shoot.
Damon, pretending not to notice him,
leisurely pursued his way, and had
the satisfaction of seeing the senti-
nel, after irresolutely pausing a few
seconds, replace his gun and resume
his walk.
To give in detail Damon's account
of his subsequent adventures would
make this article too long. Suffice
it to say that on the second morning
after his escape he was in Chicago,

Sawdust Graduates.
Most of the circus acrobats and not a
few of the rough and tumble come-
dians of the stage who have graduated
from the ring were reared and learned
the rudiments of their business in the
lumber towns of the northwest. In the
"business" these are known as "saw-
dust towns" on account of the saw-
mills, which are their chief industry.
There arn many of these in Wisconsin
and Michigan and several in Iowa that
have turned out the bulk of the acro-
bats and tumblers in the business.
In the "sawdust towns" the small
boys have exceptional facilities for
learning to turn somersaults and hand-
springs in the great beds of sawdust
that surround the mills. Soon they be-
gin to try the more difficult feats they
see done in the shows that visit the
towns. After school hours they tum-
ble until It is time to go home and do
the "chores." From out of them all
there generally rise two or three boys
who get the knack of the acrobatic
feats, and these work in constant ri-
valry, each trying to excel the other.
One day along comes a circus, and
the best boy tumbler applies for a job
and shows what he can do. Perhaps
he is given a chance as a "top mount-
er," or the-top man in a pyramid act,
because he -is light and active. When
he gets older, heavier and -stronger.

The Center of the Earth.
Of late years Ithe general view has
been that the. Interior of the globe,
though partly liquid, is for the most
part solid. Some have considered that
a section through the earth would
show the following:
(1) An outer solid envelope, (2) a
semifluid envelope, (3) a fluid envel-
ope, (4) a smeifluid envelope, (5) a solid
nucleus. No. 1 results from a reduced
temperature only, No. 2 from a pres-
sure and temperature not quite suffi-
cient for liquidation, No. 3 from a tem-
perature sufficiently high to produce
complete liquidation, No. 4 from a
pressure so great as to prevent even
the terrific heat which most certainly
exists deep down in the earth from
completely liquefying the material on
which it works, and No. 5 from a pres-
sure which overcomes completely the
liquefying power even of the mAxi-
mum heat of the interior.
This pressure is estimated to be at
the center of the earth 7,180,593,750
pounds to the square foot, a pressure
so enormous that no known substance
coul4%.use beneath it. Even hydrogen
at t .'i*higbest possible temperature
would under :-Sch conditions become
as hard as a d aUnd. Hence it seems
probable that, fAr firomi there being a
vacuum at the- center" of the earth,
there is a basis of intensely solid mat-
ter there.-I'earson's Weekly.

It Can Be Made Valuable as a Dairy
The usefulness of the goat in clearing
foul lands and the profitableness of the
animal for its hair, skin and even car-
cass are becoming pretty well under-
stood. But the goat is valuable as a
dairy animaL If the cows, for ii-
stance, are being used for supplying a
city milk trade, the keeping of goats
for the home milk supply would be an
excellent policy. The goat will live
where a cow would starve, and, while
it, like every domestic animal, will do
best on good pasture, it will live and
yield milk on astonishingly little food.
The animal and its milk are almost
entirely exempt from disease. The
milk is more nutritious.than that of the
cow and agrees with stomachs that
cow's milk frequently offends. The
animal requires only the cheapest kind
of shelter, but it needs shelter from the
storms and in winter. If by reason of
drought soiling is necessary, leaves,
vegetable refuse, peelings of the apple
or potato, bread crusts or stale bread,
if they are sweet and clean, will be all
the feed that is needed.
All goats, however, will not eat the
same food, and the feeder will have to
study the appetites of the individual
animal. Frequent feeding and a va-
riety of food in winter will be found
beneficiail. Roots, oimheal, oats, corn
(of the latter in the whole state the
goat is very fond), are proper feed, es-
pecially for the milking goat. Rock
salt is greatly relished. The flavor of
goat's milk cannot 1e distinguished
from that of cow's milk if it is proper-
ly cared for. From three to four pints
a day is the average yield of a good
milker. The milk is so rich. and of
such a character that in making pastry.

Tolstoi's Sense of Honor.
At one music party at Count Tolstoi's
a lady's singing displeased the count's
boys, and they adjourned to another
room and made a noise. Their father
lost patience and went after them, and
a characteristic admonition ensued.
"Are you making a *alise on pur-
pose?" he asked.
After some hesitation came an an-
swer in the affirmative, "Y-y-yes."
"Does not her singing please you?"
"Well, no. Why does she howl?" de-
clared one of the boys, with vexation.
"So you wish to protest against her
singing?" asked Lyeff Nikolaevitch in a
serious tone.
"Then go out and say so or stand in
the middle of the room and tell every
one present. That would be rude, but
upright and honest. But you have got
together and are squealing like grass-

Men Who Could Dress Well on Mon-

"It's a curious thing how some peo-
ple will sacrifice themselves to their
whims," said a man who prides him-
self upon his study of human nature.
"I don't mean wealthy people, for they
can usually afford to do as they like.
I am speaking now of people in moder-
ate or less than moderate circum-
stances. I have in mind a young man
whose tastes run to expensive neck-
wear. He wouldn't think of wearing
a tie that costs less than $2, and he
has stacks of them. Now, he can't af-
ford this luxury, so he has to stint him-
self by wearing $3 shoes and $15 ready
made suits. He doesn't. realize the in-.
congruity of his attire and is perfectly \
happy if his tie is all right.
"Another chap I know doesn't pay
the slightest attention to his personal
appearance and is usually rather fray-
ed looking. That's because he spends
his money on expensive cigarette. He
smokes only the highest priced import-
ed Egyptian brand, and they cost him
4 cents apiece. He is a fiend and
smokes probably 40 a day. You could
not hire him to smoke a domestic cig-
arette which costs half a cent, yet if he
did he could afford to dress himself as-
he should. I could cite numerous in-
stances of this tendency to one extrav-
agance which have come under my per-
sonal observation. I can only explain
it as a lack of mental balance."-Phil-

"Well,. the dachshund reached the

A Salty Tale.
The old saying that the way to catch
& a bird is to put salt on its tail has been
verified by little' Jimmy Belew;' who
lives in Naudain street. Jiimmy was
sent by his grandmother for 'two bggs
of salt for some domestic. operation
already in progress. After .an ho-tr's
absence he returned in a high. state of
excitement, crying, "I've got the bird!"
Sure enough,.he had a' sparrow clutch-
ed tightly in his-"fist. "But where's
the salt?' asked his grandmother.-
"Oh, the salt!" said Jimmy. "Why,
that's around the corner in the middle
of the street."
Investigation showed that the boy,
returning from his errand, saw some
sparrows on the car trick. He opened
one bag and poured out the contents,
which the birds proceeded to investi-
gate. Then he threw the contents of
the other bag. on-top of the sparrows,
submerging them sufficiently to cap-
ture one before it could extricate itself
from the avalanche of salt-Philadel-

In Memoriam.
William T. Duval was born in
Leon county, Florida, about four
miles west from Tallahassee, in the
year 1825, and died in Crawford-
ville, Wakulla county, Florida, in
April, 1900, being seventy-five years
In the year 1843, young Duval,
with his father Ferme Duval, moved
to Wakulla county, and settled near
the famous Wakulla .Springs, where
he engaged in farming and stock
raising. He soon afterwards married
Miss Sarah L. Tucker, of Wakulla
county, a young lady of great amia-
bility and belonging to one of Wa-
kulla's oldest and most honored
families, whose mother was a sister
of one of the pioneer and older
families of the Wakulla Walkers.
Mrs. Sarah L. Duval died in June,
1897, at the age of sixty-seven years.
She was a member of the Mission-
ary Baptist Church, and was an in-
telligent, affable and lovable woman.
She died as she had lived, a consist-
ent christian. Four children, all
boys, survive them. Frank, the
eldest, is a leading merchant and
business man in Crawfordville. a

Death of Col. T. S.-Lutterloh.
The Fayetteville Observer of the
16th inst. contained the following
account of the death of Col. T. S.
Lutterloh, father of Mr. R. B. Lut-
;erloh, of this city:
Yesterday morning about mid-day
Col. Thomas S. Lutterloh passed'
away-his death was quiet and
peaceful-his passing away was as
gentle as the sleep of a little child.
Mr. Lutterloh's death was not unex-
pected, for days he was on the eve
of' death--old age had worn out the
bodily frame. He was born in
Chatham county July 16th, 1816,
and today is the anniversity of his
84th year, a good old age, yet he was
not the oldest of those who connect
the present with the past, but his life
has been so bound with the interests
of this town that we feel that a great
link has been broken. Mr. Lutter-
loh came to Feyetteville when quite
a lad, and, for several years, lived
with the late James Kyle. After
that he entered the store of Charles
T. Haigh. Hie remained with Mr.
llaigh until he went into business on
his own account at the Lutterloh
corner now occupied by the Atlantic
Coast Line. as a passenger depot. lie
was a very successful business man,
one of the largest cotton buyers in
14 ayetteville. He built and operated
the first turpentine distillery in Fay-
etteville, and was owner of one or
two boats that plied daily between
this town and Wilmington. In 1855
he was elected by 'the Know Noth-
ing party Mayor of Fayettevilile. In
fact "his life was a marked one in the
business community.. He was an
honest, fearless man, very quiet in
all his ways, but determined in all.
acts. Since the war Mr. Lutterloh
has devoted more of his time to pol-
itics than to -business; lIe repre-
sented this county in the Legislature,
was Clerk of the Superior Court,
and was very active in all political
matters. He leaves a. wife, the
daughter of the. late Jarvis Butixton,
one daughter, Mrs. Fanny Utely, and.
two sons, Ralph and IHerbert.- All
of these were with him .in his last
hours. When the reaper came to
gather in the ripened grain we feel
that there is naught to lament, but
the vacant chair, so long occupied,
will be a memorate of. the love-and
care he bestowed on those, he loved.
The funeral takes place this after-
noon at 5 o'clock from St. John's
Episcopal church.
Mayor Cook this morning issued
the following notice:
Fayetteville, N. &., July 16, 1900.
In the death of Colk T. S. Lutterloh
we have lost one of our oldest citi-
zens and one who for years was
prominently identified with our bus-
iness interests, and he had many
offices of trust, and among them

kulla, viz: to be justice of the peace
for tliree terms of four years each; to
be county treasurer for four terms of
two years each; to be superintendent
of public instruction for tw6 terms of
two years each. Hle was pointed
to the office of county.juidge ad ihete-
ri;n for an unexpired term-of about
two years, and at the. expiration
of the said unexpired term was reap-
pointed for the full te;A of four
years. lie was appointed notary
public for the State at large for four
years, and was once elected to the
House of Representatives of the
Florida Legislature, in which body
he served with distinguished ability.
IHe was a lawyer by .profession.
IIe bean the study of ,w late in
life, and without a sufficieSt library
or a preceptor. Thompson's Digest
and the subsequent sesi44n laws of
Florida, together with tql Constitu-
tion of the United States and of
Florida, constituted the basis of his
law library. Ile studied Jhe law at
irregular intervals, as lie could spare,
the time from his official-duties, but
by close application and perseverance
lie stood a creditable examination
and was admitted to the.Jar. Being
a farmer, and a mercha 'also, he did
not give undivided tntiou to his
profession; however he made his
mark as an orator, being aided by a
brilliant- imagination an*l great com-
mand of language. He was a power
before a jury. For the want of
.timely advantages, as a lawyer, he.
was not the peer of Ben Hill nor of
"John'A. IIenderson, and. yet a dis-
tinguished lawyvei of Tallahassee once
said to the writer that he was the best
advocate in the Second Judicial Cir-
His chief characteristics .were be-'.
nevolence, good will, hospitality and
charity. A better neighbor never
lived near the writer.
He was a Missionary Baptist min-
ister, but by reason of failing health
he seldom .preached or went from
home for many years, and a
severe attack of -sciatic rheumatism
entirely deprived him of locomotion-
for many months before his death..
He was a great sufferer, but he bore
his prolonged and painful illness with.
patience, fortitude and resignation.
As the hopes of continued life faded
away the light of immortality
gleamed upon his latter days with the
assurance of peace and eternal joy,
and when death was upon him he
called two of his sons, Frank and
Joe, who were with him at the time,
to his bedside and exhorted them, as
brothers, to love each other, and to
do unto others as they would have
others do unto them, etc., bid them
farewell and said that he hoped to
meet them again by and by.
His way was clear and his death

and never stick your fork in your eye?
You always stick your fork in your
mouth. If you ate in the dark, it
would be the same thing. You would
never put out your eye by putting your
fork in it. Why? Because your sub-
conscious mind is doing its automatic
duty and knows very well that you eat
with your mouth and not with your
Many other actions are automatic.
For instance, 20 people have gathered
on a street -corner to board a passing
car. The very fact that they are there
means that the car will stop. The first
man has already signaled the motor-

same thing happens if ten people
gather to descend in an elevator. The

other nine-merely automatically. The

this sign to himself and rings.

Tp allahasseean-As not all
the people know the base figures au-
thofizing a Legislature to redistrict
its. counties into an. additional Con-
gressional District, and the manner a
basis was fixed iand works out, the
facts are here offered. "The ratio
of representation simply means the
ratio between the whole population
of the United States, and the whole
number of their Representatives in
the Lower House:of Congress; and
this of course includes the ratio be-
tween the people of any individual
State, and the Congressmen it is en-
-titled to; both being estimated on the
game .basis and determined by the
same rule." "The adjustment of this
matter is provided for in the Federal
Constitution, that is, in the general
features; but Congress, after every
tenth year's census, may.readjust and
reapportion their Representatives, ac-
cording to the population of each
State." The Constitution provides
that "the actual enumeration shall be
made within three years after the
first meeting of the Congress of the
United States, and within every sub-
sequenti term of ten years, in such
manner as. they shall by law direct.
The number of Representatives shall
not exceed one for. every thirty
thousand, but each State shall have
at least one Representative."
"In 1870 the ninth census
was taken, and in 1872 Congress de-
cided that after March 3d, 1873, the
Representatives should comprise 292
members, being one Representative
for every 135,239 of the population."
"Congress adopted this plan of per-
manently fixing the number of mem-
bers of Congress, to save the trouble
of doing it, as heretofore, every ten
years." "In case the number of
Congressmen allotted to a State is
larger than the number of districts
existing in it at the time, the Repre-
sentatives in excess are voted for byv
the State at large." "The foregoing
statements will show the general
plan upon which the House of Rep-
resentatives is constituted, and how
the several States are constantly
changing the number of their Repre-
sentatives, and their relative power
and influence in Congress." For ex-
ample, when this plan was adopted
Georgia was given 9, and New York
33 Congressmen, on the basis of a
national population of :8,558,371;
and in the next Congress had 11 and
34 respectively. Florida had 2 Rep-
resentatives based on a population of
187,748, in 1870, which increased by
135,239 amounts to 3"2,9S7; but
these figures were not reached until
.The Stat9 census of 1895 showed
a population of 464,600. If to this
is added ljer cent. for the rate of
increase forTeeding 5 of the
10 years, thlWpulation will be
raised to nearly 530,000, which will
add one to Florida's representation
in Congress.
'In 1890 to 1895 the white popula-
tion increased from 224,949 to 271 ,-
561, a gain. of 46,612. In the coun-
ties .west of the Suwannee, the whites
aggregated 79,462; blacks, 78,229.
In the residue of the counties, the
whites aggregated 192,099, and the
blacks 114,810.
Increase of population, in the five
years above designated, in the coun-
ties west of the Sawannee, whites
over 15,000, blacks about 8,000. In
the remainder aggregated increase
