FOR THE STATE CAPITAL! Tributeof Respect

He Reviews the Situation and Con-
cludes it Should Remain Here.
Plant City, Fla., July 30, 1900-
.To the editor of the Times: In re-
grard to the (Capitol removal question
now before the people, I ask permis-
:ion to offer through the columns of
ihe Times a few observations.
J hope to see the Capitol remain
at Tallahassee. I think this the-ideal
1ilace in Florida for its location.
While it is some distance from South
Florida, yet it is worth a trip there.
1: is a delightful transition from our
South Florida scenery.
In all probability, within the next
few years, there will be built a rail-
road from Tallahassee southward
into South Florida, skirting the Gulf
coast, and when this is done we will
bet- much nearer.
The citizens of Jacksonville seem
to be the leading and primary agita-
tors of this movement, and they are
very much concerned because the
people of this portion of the State
are so far from the seat of the gov-
ernment, and at first view this might
occur as a weighty argument why
the people of this section should de-
sire the Capital removed to Jackson-
But if anyone will stop to consider,
it will be readily seen that the aver-
age citizen has no occasion to visit
the Capital every day in the year,
consequently, cannot be concerned
where it is located, so far as distance
is concerned. About the only class
of citizens who at any time are com-
pelled to go to the Capital are mem-
bers of the Legislature and attor-
neys. Members of the Legislature
receive mileage for their traveling,
and as many of them go there- on
passes any amount paid them.for
mileage is that much supplemented
to their salaries,; there should be no
kick from them in regard to distance.
Attorneys, except perhaps when-pur-
suing" smine extraordinary remedy,
are not usually required to atjnd the
Supreme Court, being pe n*Wd by,
the rules to file briefs in all appellate
matters before the said court. *
This being the case, what differ-
ence can it make where the State
Capitol is located? and as it is in
Tallahassee, why not let it remain
there? Let the State provide there,'
which I think it ought to do, suita-
ble accommodations for the transac-
tion of the public business. This
can be done at much less cost to the
State than to remove the Capitol,
even though Jacksonville should pay
the bonus they promise, and. this is a
mere promise of theirs. There seems
no way to bind them, even though
the people by their votes direct the
change. They are not legally bound.
Very few States ever change th;
Capitol site. Kentucky tried to do
so a few years back, when Louisville,
the metropolis of the State, tried to
wrest the prize from Frankfort, and
.o with Missouri, but the people
failed to ratify the proposition in
either State.
Tallahassee has been the Capital
since thie organization of the terri-
tory, and there has grown up around
it a halo of memories of the State's
past glories which I think we should
not forget. None of the places now
v: working for the prize are doing so
from patriotic reasons, but from sel-
fish motives.
Tallahassee is healthy and free
from epidemi cs, Jacksonville, as
well as all coat cities, is liable to ep-
idemics, more so than interior cities,

and in case of .epidemic in the Capi-
tal City there would be great dis-
turbance to the public business.
At Tallahassee the Legislature will
be freer from the influence of the
pernicious lobby, while Jacksonville
is said to be a hotbed of politics, and
if the State Capitol was located there.
no doubt they would feel it their duty
to influence and shape State legisla-
tion, as far as possible.
The Jacksonville bar association
seem to be actively engaged in the
campaign for the removal of he


Therefore, as a token of our love,
esteem and respect, and in memory
of our deceased worthy brother,
Resolved, That, as a Sunday
School, in the death of B. A. Megin-
niss we have sustained a great loss,
and while we mourn his departure,
and will miss his familiarface among
us, we feel that our loss is his gain.
Resolved, That we cherish his
memory as a faithful Sunday School
worker, and cordially commend his
example as worthy of imitation.

AMr. H. Andrews, Megmnniss was
born in Kent county, Maryland, 9th
March, 1550 HIls parents were
Methodists, regular in their attend-
ance at the stated services of their
church, sending their children to
Sunday School and early teaching
them the duty of systematic giving.
When children are thus trained it is
not surprising that. our -brother-in
his-after life, in ripe manhood and to -
the day of his death, should continue
in the way in which he was brought
up- it showed the effect of his early
training. In the fall of 1866( he
came to Tallahassee as clerk for his
uncle, the late Geo. II. Meginniss.
On the first Sunday after his arrival
lie was enrolled as a pupil in this
school and was assigned to the class
of J T. Bernard by the Superintend-
ent, the late T. J. Perkins. As a
pupil he was punctual in his attend-
ance, modest in his deportment and
took great interest in the lessons
In the summer of 1V66. there was a
gracious revival under the ministry
of 'ev. J. 0. Branch, and among the
many converts of that memorable
year was B. A. Meginniss, the Sun-
day school scholar. Ile immediately
joined the M. E. Church, South, at
this place and soon thereafter was
promoted to the charge of a class.
For upwards of ten years he was a
faithful, painstaking, noble teacher.
And when about 1887 the Superin-
tendent, Thos. J. Perkins, resigned
on account of the infirmaties of age,
such was our friend's zeal and his
peculiar fitness for the position that
lihe was appointed Superintendent of
the school, and soon was the wisdom
of this selection made manifest.
Teachers and scholars increased in
numbers and interest, -the zeal he
showed being imparted to- others,
and the Tallahassee Sunday School
was in a more prosperous condition
than ever before. But his inate
modesty would not permit him long
t' contine in this position. ie said
there were others more competent
-11 nst the protests friends,
-W-. 7ned to serve longer.-. Thus
after an incumbency of five or six
years as Superintendent he again en-
tered the ranks of teacher. In this
role he was beloved and esteemed by
his pupils as the resolutions presented
by his class show. They were reg-
ular in their attendance, correct in.
their deportment, interested in the
lesson and systematic and liberal in
their contributions. Thus for a
period of near thirty-four years (ex-
cept during a twelve month's ab-
sence in his native State) he had
been connected with this Sunday
School as pupil, teacher and Super-
intendent. Always at his post
except when hindered by
Providential causes, and with
the lesson well prepared, he im-
parted the interest he felt to those
with whom he came in contact, and
so his efficiency and zeal provoked
others to good works. But God in
His infinite wisdom has seen fit to call
him hence. Cut off in the prime of
life and in the midst of usefulness it
seems strange to our mortal eyes that
one who could so ill be spared should
be called away from us, and natu-
rally we ask who can fill his place.
'But infinite wisdom never errs and
we bow with humble submission to
thie Almighty fiat. May the mantle of
him who so long and faithfully la-
bored among us fall upon others!
But though no longer among us he is
still with us in his example of a faith-
ful, zealous, upright Sunday School
worker, and as such we cherish his

Washington Expecting Definite
Information Soon


And the flembers of the Organization
will vote for Bryan.

Washington July 28-It is be-
lieved here that something definite
will be known in regard to China by
the end of next week. Earl Li has
declared that the ministers are safe
and on their way to the coast, and
this statement should be proved o0
disproved before long. At present..
the State Department does not know
what to think. Officially, it acceWpt-
Minister Wu's reports as accurate(
and-continues, to send troops to-
China and to urge an advance or
Pekin by the allies. There is n i
doubt that what news has been re-
ceived recently tends to discredit
Chinese representations, which offe?
po proof and may depend entire l\
on mere assertion. Admiral Kem ft
has cabled positively that the Im-
perial authorities are in sympathy3
with the Boxers, and that, anyway:.
they are powerless and incapable tf
controlling the situation. This is thi
first official declaration to reach the
Vpited States Government contra-
dictory of the Chinese representa-
tions that the Imperial Government
had steadfastly and from the first
opposed Boxer movement. Ex-
changes in constant progress be-
tween the powers are tending morc
and more to cast suspicion upon the
genuineness of the many communi-
cations that have come from Pekin
through Chinese government sources.
If it should be established that there
has been an attempt on the part of
'the Chinese to practice a gigantic
fraud upon the wqrld, this fact may
call for a change of attitude on the
part of the United States Govern-
merit toward China. This would not
affect the military policy already
under way, but merely the technical
relations between the two govern-
ments, which would closely approxi-
mate a state of formal war.
The. official- determination ,of the
Gold Democrats not to put a ticket
in the field this fall is a great triumph
for the Democratic party, as it is evi-
dent that nearly all those who voted
for Palmer and Buckner in 1896 will
this year return to their old allegi-
ance. Some few Gold Democrats.
may vote for McKinley, but they wili
nearly all be men who supported hbrr
in 1896, and not those who put up at
the half-way house in that year. As
everyone knows the Palmer and
Buckner movement was engineered
with the indirect intention of getting
votes for McKinley and not for it-
own ticket. Senator Palmer, him-
self, towards the end of the campaign,
advised his supporters to vote for
McKinley instead of for himself, and
his appeal, coming from an alleged
Democrat, was specious enough to
lead away many men who wouldhi
never have yieled to lIepublican
representations. This year their,
will be no chance to repeat that sort
of thiing. The leaders of this faction,
who have been continually breaking
into print with the boastful claim
that they are D)emocrats, and that
they cannot support the party, can do
so no longer. They have shouted
this from the hustings whenever they
were favored with an audience, andi

which showed how little the novelist

him. Air. Leeds got off a train at Del-

He looked like a farmer's boy. His
trousers were baggy, his coat battered
and his hat rowdy.

The Hard Work of Congrensmell.
Let those who are blissfully ignorant
laugh at congressmen for the easy time
they have at Washington. Only those
who. have been through the mill know
how hard a congressman must work if
he is to fulfill his public duties. A
hardworking senator said to me, "I
might have made $50,000 during my
term in the senate if I had given as
much attention to my private business
as I have given to the public business."
The amount of work wflTch is laid up-
on a member or senator is simply enor-
mous. What with the demand for pen-
sions, postoffice documents, applica-
tions for promotion or discharge in the
army and many other things, a mem-
ber's time may be taken up with the
exactions of his daily mail. A good
clerk may be of immense help, but
some senators employ two or three
and then find there is a great deal
which they must answer or attend to
in p i.
Thb -..ily sessions from 12 to about
5 take up half a day, and committee
meetings often take up the other half
for two or three days in the week. It
is hard to tell when the busiest mem-
bers, who are never absent from a ses-
sion or from a committee meeting, find
time to prepare the elaborate speeches
which they sometimes deliver. It is
not strange, then, that so few members
of either chamber are found in the
reading rooms devoted to them in the
Congressional library. When they want
books from that or any other deposi-
tory, they have them sent to their

Weight of Women's Brain..
The woman's brain is always less
than the man's. From Boyd's figures
we can pick out 102 men and 113 wpm-
en between 64 inches and 06 inches
high. averaging close on 65 inches, for
each group. But the brains of the men
average 46.9 ounces, while those of the-
womed are only 41.9 ounces, which
gives the men an advantage of 12 per
cent. There are 21 &mall men whose
height averages 62 inches, and there
are 135 women of the same height. The
brains of the men weigh 45.6 ounces,

Encouraged to Hope.
When the Empress Ftederick, eldest
daughter of Queen Victoria, was a lit-
tle girl, her disposition, to the great
grief of the queen, was haughty and
arrogant Once; when about to embark
on the, royal yacht Victoria and Albert,
she was lifted across to the deck of- the
boat by one of the sailors, who, as he
was putting her down gently, said,
"There you are, my little lady."
"1 am not a 'little lady;' I am a
princess!" was the prompt and indig-
nant reply. The queen, who had over-
heard the conversation, detained the
man with gesture, and. turning to her
spoiled little daughter, said:
"Tell the kind sailor that you are
much indebted to him for his civility
and that, although you are not a 'little
lady' yet, you confidently hope to merit
the title before long."
According to a celebrated anatomist
there are upwards of 5,000,000 little
glands in the human stomach. These
glands pour out the digestive juices
which dissolve or digest the food. In-
digestion is want of juice, weakness of
glands, need of help to restore the
health of these organs. The best and
most natural help isr that given by
Shaker Digestive Cordial.' Natural, be-
cause it supphes the materials needed
by the glands to prepare the digestive
juices. Because it strengthens and in-
vigorates the glands and the stomach,
until they are able to do their work
alone. Shaker Digestive Cordial cures
indigestion certainly and permanently.
It does so by natural means, and therein.
lies the secret of its wonderful and un-
varied success.

"Oh. the snore, the beautiful snore, fill-

over the cov-rlet, under the sheet, from
her wee dimpled chin to heP pretty
feet; now rising aloft like a bee in

The Last Chinese Actrwco..
Many visitors to the Celestial king-
dom have noted the absence of women
from the stage. All the roles in a Chi-
nese play are taken by men. This sin-
gular custom is traced back to a wom-
an's whim. The Emperor Yung
Tsching married an actress at the be-
ginning of the eighteenth century,
when women were allowed on the
stage. The emperor died and the em-
press dowager ruled the country for
her son, the Prince Kim Sung.
To satisfy her vanity this shrewd
and most peculiar woman issued a
decree in the year 1736 forbidding, un-
der penalty of instant death by the
sword of the executioner, any member
of her sex to appear on the Chinese
stage. "After me, no one," said the
empress dowager, and since her day no
woman within the reach of Chinese
law has dared to test the strength of
her decree. In Hongkong (a British
colony) women have played in Chinese
theaters. but never as yet, we believe,

A Proftable Deposit.
I remember the .case of an old lady at
E. who usually .had froln 13,000 to
15,000 standing to her credit, and,
needless to say, as she Iid not ask for
any interest thereupon, none was al-
lowed her. "The manager whenever
she entered the office was always most
particular to step forward and inquire
most tenderly concerning the state of
her health, and if she replied that she
was suffering from a sligHT cold the
expression upon the man's face grew
quite sad. No wonder, when he re-
membered that even a slight cold might
carry off an old lady who was handing
his company at least 300 a year.-

"I had a severe attack of bilious colic,
got a bottle of Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera Diarrhoea Remedy, took two
doses and was entirely cured," says Rev.
A. A. Power, of Emporia, Kan. "My
neighbor across the street was sick for
over a week, had two or three bottles of
medicine from the doctor. He used
them for three or four days without re-
lief, then called in another doctor who
treated him for some days and gave him
no reliet, so discharged him. I went
over to see him the next morning. He
said his bowels were in a terrible fix,
that they had been running off so long
that it was almost bloody flux. I asked
hi in if he had tried Chamberlain's Colic,
Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and he
said. -No.' I went home and brought
him my bottle and gave him one dose;
told him to take another dose in fifteen n
or twenty minutes if he did not find re-
lief, but he took no more an4 was en-

Cross Words Kill a Bird.
A bird which -receives a scolding Is
made as miserable and unhappy there-
by as a child would be. To illustrate
this Our Dumb Animals tells the fol-
lowing story:
A Massachusetts woman had a few
years ago a beautiful canary bird
which she dearly loved and to which
she had never spoken an unkind word
in her life.
One day" the church organist was
away, and she stopped,.after church to
play the orgin for the Sunday school.
In consequence of.this the dinner had
to be put off an hour, and when she got
home her good husband was very an-
gry, and he spoke to her unkindly.
The things were put on, and they sat
down in silence at the table, and pres-
ently the biitl began to chirp at her as
it always had-to attract her attention.
To shame her husband for having spo-
ken so she turned to the bird and for
the first time in her life spoke to it in a
most violent and angry tone. In less
than five minutes there was a flutter-
ing in the cage. She sprang to the
cage. The bird was dead.
Mrs. Hendricks, the wife of the late
vice president of the United States,
said that she once killed a mocking
bird in the same way. It annoyed her
by loud singing. To stop it she spoke
in a violent tone and pretended to
throw something at it, and within five
minute it was dead-

maglish Red Tape.
At the present time. when the system
of red tape is being attacked and rid-
iculed, the following somewhat amus-
.ing methods of dealing with matters
are still adopted in one of the great
government departments.
For instance, a hairbrush and comb
must be purchased under the head of
service "clothing," whereas a tooth-
brush is under "fuel" and spectacles
under "medicines." A clothesbasket
is "clothing," but clothes pegs are "in-
cidentals." The funniest of all. how-
ever, are guano and straw, they being
purchased under "victualing."
A good instance of red tape is told in
connection with the excise. An officer
had entered in the inquiry column of
his return: "March 13. Dog dead."
This did not satisfy his superior, who
told him to inquire again, which the
obedient officer did, recording: "April
10. Dog still dead."-London Stand-

one occasion very nervous, she told

"It's very odd," said Dr. W.. "but
that's the very thing that I was going
to recommend to you. I will write the
particulars of your case to a very clev-
er man there, in whose hands you will
be well taken care of."
The lady. furnished with the letter,t
set off. On arriving at Bath, feeling, as
usual, very nervous, she said to a con-
"Long as Dr. Walter has attended
me he has never explained to. me what
ails me. I have a great mind to open
his letter and see- what he has stated
of my case to. the Bath physician."
In v-ain-.her friend.represented to her
the breach of confidence this would be.

send her back again.

"This case also illustrates the pecul-

Rules which obtain in other cities are
impracticable here. Most of the corre-

and command good salaries. But one
of their most important functions is to
make acquaintances with men in of-

important element in his profession to

by Washington Correspondents.
They were all newspaper ueti. and
they were all so united on the proposi-
tion under considerationn that they did
not interrupt the man who was doing
the talking.
"Scoops," said the sharp nosed re-
porter to the others, "are the baue and
the nightmare of a newspaper man's
life, from the proprietor and managing
editor down to the Maltese office cat.
Many a man occupies a 'desk' today
because of a good "beat,' and many an-
other man is engaged in a more humble
occupation because lie failed to see
one. Scoops .constitute the seesaw of
journalistic life.
"A newspaper man is as touchy on
this subject as a woman on her back
hair; justly so, because a standard is
formed by which, his journalistic tal-
ents are largely rated and his salary
in accordance. If the city editor asks
him too often why he 'didn't get it,' he
finally 'gets it' where the fowl gets the
ax, and a new mian appears on his for-

A Joke on Offeabaeh.
Offenbach. the famous opera bouffe
composer, had an insatiable thirst for
success and fame combined with a
vanity that occasionally played him a
sorry trick.
Onrde he was going down the Rhine
on a steamer, among whose passengers
was iihe Duke of Nassau, a fact of
which the composer was in blissful ig-
As the steamer approached its last
stopping place the bank of the river
was seen to be covered by a dense
throng of people who were shouting
and waving their hats. A band on the
pier was playing a march from one of
Offenbach's operas.
As the boat touched the pier Offen-
bach .stepped -to the rail and bowed and
waved his hat to the people in ac-
knowledgment of this flattering ova-
"It is glorious to be received in a
foreign land like this!" he remarked to
his companions.
But his self complacency received a
rude shock the next instant when the
duke's adjutant appeared and said, in
a rough and unfeeling manner:
"Get out- of the way, will you. and
let his highness- show himself!"

A Famous Penrl.
The beautiful pearl known as 4the
Great. Southern Cross was found in
Western Australia- in the year 1SS4. -It
consists of nine pearls joined together
in the form of a cross, in which shape
it was found by a man named Clarke.
It is said that the tinder and the first
purchaser of it buried it for some time,
superstitiously regarding it as a heav-
enly miracle. It was, however, ulti-
mately taken up from its "burial place
and sold for $1,A000, since which time it
has frequently changed hands and is
now valued at $50.000.- At the Colonial

The expenditure of a large
sum of the people's money to
remove the seat of government
and erect a handsome, extensive
and costly Capitol building-
which is not needed for the
transaction of the people's busi.
ness-would be a most radical
and grievous departure from
the time-honored and oft-ap
proved policy of economical
management of the State's affairs
which has been consistently fol-
lowed by the several Democratic
administrations in Florida from
1876 to the present time.
For twenty-four years Demo-
,cratic government in Florida has
stood for economy, low taxes
and opposition to every form of
extravagance. The State's pub-
lic debt has been reduced, the
burden of taxation for State
purposes has year by year been
made lighter and unnecessary
expenditures have been discon-
tinued and disallowed.
There is now no branch of the
State government which could
be safely dispensed with, and in
each branch the strictest econo-
my of administration prevails.
No complaint has been heard as
to the manner in which the work
of the several departments is
conducted, and it can not be
claimed that any of them are in

any way embarrassed in the
proper discharge of their duties
by lack of accommodations in the
present State-house.
The present Capitol building
at Tallahassee is sufficient for all
the needs of an economically
administered State government.
A large expenditure for a new
State-house will necessitate a
material and unnecessary in-
crease in the State's bonded
debt. It would be an extrava-
gance, pure and simple-a viola-
tion of the most fundamental
and most important principle
upon which has rested the claims
of Democracy for the confidence
of the people of Florida..

intention of voting against the plot-
ters for empire. They still love their
party. They hope to see it re-
claimed from the error of its ways.
They pray that it may be brought
back to the true American faith. In
the meantime they will so vote as to
prevent that betrayal of liberty
which is now sought by the men
who have already made the Republi-
can party an unamerican party.
There is something. of a surprise
in store for the arrogant plotters who
count so confidently on the blind
obedience of the rank and file of the
Republican party. The imperialists
have apparently forgotten that many
thousands of these voters are Amer-
icans first and Republicans after-
wards. It is their Americanism
which will be heard from on Novem-
ber 6 next. And it is in the volume
of this protest against Empire that
will be found the surprise in store for
the imperialist.

Dunn's R ing July 28 is full of the usual Re-
publican prosperity bluster, but when
it comes down to facts and figures
here is the first assertion: "Payments
through clearing houses at all points
outside this city for the week are 5.3
per cent. below last year's, and at
New York 13.7 per cent. smaller."
To the uninitiated this looks like a
falling off in business for that period.

Yes, the TALLAIIASSEEAN is down
on that list--and will be on every
other one of a similar nature for as
many dollars as it can afford. If
every other person in town had sub-
scribed as. liberally, and uncondition-
ally (except of course that the work
should be done) there would have
been no trouble in securing the

few, such as "A penny saved is two-
pence gained."-Bill Arp in Atlanta

the last half dozen years, the
greater portion of the tax-payers
of Florida, exerting, as they are,
all of their resources to recover
their losses, are even now carry-
ing as heavy a burden of taxa-
tion as they. can reasonably be
expected to stand. It is not fair
to this large class, which has
suffered severe losses instead of
reaping large profits, to make an
immense addition to the State's
public debt, which will consid-
erably increase their taxes, and
which can inure -to the benefit
of only a comparatively few peo-
ple in one of the already pros-
perous cities now seeking to be-
come the Capital.
The farmers and fruit-growers
of Florida-the bone and sinew
of the State-should be given
every chance to get on their feet
again and resume their forward
march to prosperity before 'the
State government launches out
into new and unnecessary and
extravagant expenditures of the
public money-and such the
proposition to erect a million
dollar Capitol building in a place
where the cost of running the
State government would be mul-
tiplied, most certainly is.-

It is not at all strange that con-
sistent Americins be unable to
follow President McKinley into
the paths of empire, abandoning an
overthrown republic to the fate of
all betrayed governments. When
President McKinley's dream of em-
pire first began, to develop, following
the tempt,.tion created by the results
of the war with Spain,. it'
alarmed and dismayed some of the
soundest thinkers among the Repub-
lican leaders. A very notable group,
comprising such men as ex-Speaker
Reed, of Maine, 'Senator Hoar, of
Massachusetts, ex-Senator Edmunds,
of Vermont, Congressman Burrows,
of Michigan, and others of equal dis-
tinction, opposed the President's im-
perial policy on principle. They

This plain perception of the peril
now confronting the American sys-

eminent Republicans through the
rank and file of the party. With

Governor Roosevelt's description,
by the way, applies to General Law-

Were those men "dishonest at home
and cowards abroad?"
A wise old man in the Democratic
party remarked when Roosevelt was
"We can safely rely on that young
man to make more kinds of a fool of
himself than any man has ever done
in public life."
Governor Roosevelt seems to be
rapidly verifying the prediction.-

Mr. R1. II. Buford, who has been-

Hon. Fred T. Myers, of this city,

canvass his county (Calhoun) for the

ous, bright young man and if nomi-
nated and elected will make his
county a valuable representative. His
associations here will give him the
advantage of gaining an early and
favorable acquaintance with the law-

gained as to State affairs in the course
of his stay here will also stand him

Tallahassee already feels that she
owes a lasting debt of. gratitude to

busted and laid low when his pride is
greatest. It may not pay above 3 per

They Took Chances.
[Copyright, 1900, by C. B. Lewis.]
It was Moses lIar!)er who begun it.
Some one told him that a circus ad-
vertisin wagon was slowly l)but surely
approaching the town of Jericho, and
he let it be known that he would show
up at the postotie 'in the evening and(
have sunthin to say to interest the hull
United States. Nobody could guess
whether Moses had found a new way
of gittin a hired man up at 4 o'clock in
the morning or was goin- to experiment
on growing broomsticks, nnd the crowd
was holding its breath when he showed
up. Moses didn't lose no valuable time
trying to find out whether Porto Rico
belonged to the United Statr-s or to a
tobacco trust, but put on his spectacles
and said:
"Citizens of .Tericho--T!', tocsin has
sounded, and w'. are l'her tonight to
counsel together ia th! e- se of moral-
ity. Last year, as most of you know.

Jonas Teachout, whose barn faces the
highway a mile outside of this town,
allowed the circus wagon to paste up
pictures on three sides of the building.
How many tickets for the circus he
got in exchange I do not know, and it
has nuthin to do with the question.
What I'm sayin is that them pictures,
in my solemn belief, shocked the mor.
als of this community fur worse than
as if ten saloons had been opened in
the town. The circus wagon is ag'in
approaching. It is creepin along in its
sly, insiduous way, leaving the blight
of destruction In its path, and if sun-
thin ain't done Jonas Teachout's barn
will ag'in be enwrappe.d in the allurin
colors of vice and degradation. I move
that it is the sense of this meeting, and
of the community in general, that Jo.
nas be struggle wita.-
Pitta' Carminative aids digestion, reg-

summer complaints it is a specific. Per-
fectly harmless and free from injurious
drugs and chemicals.

"It appears to me," says ifeacon
Spooner as Moses sat down, "that a
p'int has bin made. When Moses talks
of allurin colors of vice and degrada-

There is an amusing English defini-
tion of "gentleman." It Is "A man who

title insists upon having 'Esq.' added to
his name when letters are addressed to

The west end Londoner of social

He also expects to have the distinc-

if he finds on the envelope the prefix
"Mr." As a matter of fact the num-

A Famous Prison.
The celebrated Mamertine prison fur-
nishes an important scene in Sienkie-
wiez's story, "Quo Vadis." It is locat-
ed on the slope of the Capitoline, in
Rome, and, according to tradition, It
was begun by Ancus Martius and later
enlarged by Servius Tullius. Jugurtha
is said to have been starved to death
here; the accomplices .of Catiline stran-
gled by command of Cicero and Seja-
.-nus, the minister and favorite of Tibe-
rius, executed. Church tradition has
consecrated this prison as the place
where St. Peter and St. Paul were con-
fined by order of Nero. Historian Hil-
lard says of it:.
"The Mamertine prison is a hideous
vault divided into an upper and lower
portion scooped. out of the solid rock
and lined with massive blocks in the
Etruscan style of architecture. .A more
heartbreaking. place of confinement it
is not.easy to imagine. According to
the traditions of the church, St.- Peter.
was imprisoned here by order, of Nero,.
- tnd the pillar to which he was bound
.and a fountain 'which sprang up mirac-
ulously to furnish the water of baptism
to his jailers, whom he converted, are,
shown to the visitor. There is no rea-
son -to doubt that Jugurtha was starv-
ed to death in these pitiless vaults.
- Here, too, the companions of Catiline
.were strangled. It is a curious fact
that the chances of literature and his-'
tory 'should have carv ed two such
names as those of Sallust and Cicero
on these Cyclopean walls."

Roselle and Its Uses.

(From the South Florida Sun. )
This plant was grown in India
long before Avon Park was planted
upon the map of Florida, and we are
fortunate indeed to have it now
growing in Avon Park, though by
transition of a letter it is called s ,-
relle"-Jamaica Sorelle-a sorrow
substitute for euphonious "roselle,'
while all agree that it deserves the
best of names.
Roselle can be depended upon to
make the best of its situation. Leave
it in a corner totally neglected,
choked- with grass and weeds, it
grows a few inches high, tipped with
a single bud, while with a little at-
tention it makes a good sized bush;
but plant it in mellow sandy soil in
June, with no neighbors nearer than
a dozen feet. Scatter a pound of
fruit and vine fertilizer wide about it,
give it frequent shallow cultivation,
and it is interesting to observe its
rapid growth from week to_ week.
In October it will be six to ten feet
high and twenty to thirty in circum-
ference. A pleasing sight at all
times, but especially so in November
with its bright red branches and buds
covered with hundreds of cream
white, crimson eyed blossoms as
large as a silver dollar.
The chief interest in roselle is that
it is food for the hungry, and drink
for the thirsty. Its praises have been
sung in every home -in Avon Park,
and the writer who has been engaged
for the past three years in distribut-
ing roselle seeds and plants through-
out the State, has heard nothing but
a good report from them.
The first use of. roselle is for
greens of which it makes the very
best. Sow the seed thickly in rich
soil. "All Fools' Day" or any other
day tilL.September, give it partial
shade and plenty of water. If you
don't like greens give the hens a
chance and they will take every leaf.
The buds are forming the last of
October and before blooming make
excellent sauce. In November the
blossoms appear new every morning
and drop next day leaving the seed
capsule and the fleshy calyxes or
whorl of leaves that surround it to
develop rapidly. These last are used
for food, and the seed capsules
thrown away.
The calyxes are used for sauce and
salad, pies, pickles and tarts, marma-
lade and butter, jam and jelly, wine
and vinegar; also mixed with other
dried fruits with good results. A
hot water infusion makes a delicious
beverage, and a sour wine resemb-
ling claret is made for a few cents
per gallon. .
Thirty days after blooming the
calyxes should be picked and ex-
posed to the sun for three days, after
this they will keep indefinitely and
can be used for all purposes as be-
fore. These dried roselles have a
commercial value, and are quoted at
one dollar a pound in New York.
The state of Florida is favorably
situated for supplying the whole
country with Roselle, and can prof-
itably use immense quantities at
home. Our State Department of
Agricultural, Horticultural Society
'and experimental station have given
much attention to the culture of
citrus fruits, pineapples, tobacco and
cassava. Now let them take under
consideration a crop that may prove
no less valuable to all the people for
every man or woman that has any
land can grow "Roselle."
Roselle is quite sensitive to cold
and frost, but a partial crop at least
may be had -in every county, and

some years a full crop. The writer
does not assume to know all about
roselle, but submits these few items
from personal experience, hoping that
it may interest and benefit the peo-

An Ocean Hotel.
Some idea of what a big hotel a
transatlantic liner is may be gained
from the following from Ainslie's Mag-
azine: "Everything about the kitchen
of a great steamship is on a most clab-
orate scale. The range weighs many
tons; the various soup caldrons are
constructed to hold 20 gallons; loaves
are baked by the hundred, joints roast-
ed by thle dozen, each in a separate and
specially constructed compartment To
serve the Pmeals thousands of plates,
pieces of sin er, cups and saucers and
napkins are required, and the average
breakage in the galley of a big ship
amounts to a barrel of china every day.
"The amount of stores required for a
single voyage by a great liner is copn-
parable only to the commissariat of an
army. Here are a few figures furnish-
ed by. the chief steward of one.of the
big German ships from the order sheet
;or a recent trip: Sixteen tons of fresh
beef, five tons of lamb and veal, 3,500
head of chickens, ducks, geese and
game, four tons of salted meats, 1,000
dozens .eggs, three tons of sugar, 100
barrels of flour, 700 bushels of pota-
toes,. 2% tons of butter, 2,000 quarts of
milk and 500 gallons of ice cream. Of
course this .is not an exhaustive list,
but it will serve to give an idea of the
enormous appetite which the store-
rooms of the ocean liner must satisfy."

Americans are known as a dvs-
peptic people. The extent of this
disease may be inferred, from the
multitude of so-called "medicines"
offered as a. remedy. -They are often
in tablet form and have no Yvlue ex-
cept as palliatives of the immediate
effects of dyspepsia..' The mnan who
used them may feel better but is
surely getting worse. They do not
touch the real cause of the disease.
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis-
covery is a medicine specially pre-
pared to cure diseases of the stomach
and organs of digestion and nutri-
tion. It is not made to give tempor-
ary relief but to effect permanent
cure. In ninety-eight cases out of
every hundred it cures perfectly and
It has cost Dr. Pierce $25,000 to
give away in the last year the copies
of his People's Common Sense Med-
ical Adviser, which have been ap-
plied for. This book of 1008 pages
is sent free on receipt of 21 one-cent
stamps to pay expense of mailing
only. Address Dr. R. V. Pierce,

"FrIeamseed Nightmare."
God has given us a capacity to enjoy
food. That is not the principal object
in eating. One goes to a dinner and
after eating all that he really desires
and more than is beneficial thinks he
will add a little of the compounds they
call dessert-the Invention of the dev-
il-and becomes uncomfortable and
wretched. Most of the desserts we
have might be called "fricasseed night-
mare" or "escaloped indigestion." Eat-
ing becomes idolatry if it becomes un-
fitting for higher service. It is a crime
to gorge and be uncomfortable or to
induce a headache. I once attended a
dinner at the Invitation ;of a parish-
ioner and was asked to accompany a
lady to the table. I did not need to
eat, but I offered to help her to what-
ever she desired, and she asked for
chicken salad, remarking, "It always
gives me a wretched headache, but I
-am going to have some," and I replied,
"Then you may help yourself, for I
will not."-Address by Dr. Pierson.

When Poor WritIno Is Best.
A popular author whose handwriting
was none of the best used to maintain

him not to write too welL He declared

thirds full. Parenthetically I say 'she,'
because this is a task that requires
more energy than any male Nicara-
guan was ever known tq possess. The
jar is made of lbaked clay, and, not be-
ing glazed, is partially porous and soon
becomes moist on the outside. Two
leather straps are firmly attached to
the neck, and, seizing these in her
hands, she begins to rotate-the jar
swiftly in the air. The mouth is wide
open, but centrifugal action keeps the
liquid from flying out.
"The average native woman is frail
and listless in appearance, but the en-
durance which they exhibit at this sort
of calisthenics is marvelous. It is
about the same as swinging IndiAtn
clubs, and I am afraid to say how long
I have seen them keep it up, lest you
might set me down as a prize liar.
Generally the lord and master lies in
one corner of their 'jacal,.' or hut.
smoking a cigarette and watching the
operation languidly. When the wom-
an thinks the water is sufficiently cool,
she stops with a dexterous twist of the
wrist and hands him the jar.
"Usually he takes a gulp, growls out,
'Moocha calora!' which, is native pa-
tois -for 'blamed hot,' and she begins
again, patiently, describing pinwheels.
I have never made a test with a ther-
mometer, but 1 assure you they can re-
duce tepid water to the temperature of
a very cool mountain spring."-New
Orleans Times-Democrat.

The Belief In Charms.
A belief in charms has existed in all
ages and has been shared by all peo-
ples. It is a natural result of supersti-
tion. The phylacteries worn by Mo-
hammedan and Jewish women on the

Many great men were believers in
talismans and wore them constantly.
Napoleon especially was very supersti-

given to him by an Egtyptian priest,
which he. regarded as being responsi-

Settled Out of Court.
A barrister riding his bicycle on a
path was caught by a policeman. The
gentleman at once came off the path
and tried to reason with the policeman.
"You aren't really going to run me
in for this?" he asked.
"Yes, sir. I can't help it."
"Well, come in here (a public house
close by), and we will talk about it."
The policeman followed the gentle-
man, who ordered two glasses of beer,
one for himself, the other for the po-
liceman, both of which were finished
.before he again remarked:
"Surely you are not really going to
make a fuss about this?'
"I must, sir. It's my business."
"Ah! Then at the same time it will
be my business to report you for drink-
ing beer while on duty."
The policeman's expression sudden-
ly changed.
"You're a lawyer, I suppose, sir?"
"And a sharp one, too," he said as
he went out and left the gentleman
to continue his ride.-London Answers.

time I have thought of writing to you
to let you know of the great benefit I
have received
from the use of
MISe Jolhnson Lydia E. Pink-
Saved ffrtom ham's Vegeta-
Insanity by ble Compound.
Soon after the
Mrs. Pinkham birth of my first
child, I com-
menced to have spells with my spine.
Every month I grew worse and at last
became so bad that I found I was
gradually losing my mind.
The doctors treated me for female
troubles, but I got no better. One
doctor told me that I would be insane.
I was advised by a friend to give Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a
trial, and before I had taken all of the
first bottle my neighbors noticed the
change in me.
"I have now taken five bottles and
cannot find words sufficient to praise it.
I advise every woman who is suffering
from any female weakness to give it a
fair trial. I thank you for your good
medicine. "-M Is GERTRUDE M. JOHN-
MrFr. Perkins' Letter.
"I had female trouble of all kinds,
had three doctors, but only grew ivorse.
I began, taking Lydia E. Pinkhamn's
Vegetable Compound and Liver Pills
and used the SanativeV Wash. and can-
not praise your remedies enough."-
Business was dull, and the vessel had
been in the same port for some tinie,
and the captain wrote, "We are in
statu quo." The owner for the next
week was engagedd in searching the at-
las of the West Indies trying to find
out, as he put it, "where in thunder
this 'ere statu quo is!"

"I am going to sea," the young, man
said and paused.
The young girl gasped, "0 Harry-er

the tears in her voice.
Then be knew what he had feared to
ask in so many words.
"I am going to see," he repeated,

me permission." Then she fell upom
his bosom.-Philadelphia Press.
