"heFEaxle Got the PFih.
At this Junction of the thoroughfare
and Island lake on a dead pine more
than 100 feet high sat a white headed
-eagle. In the air a large fishhawk was
-sailing over the water looking for his
dinner 2(X) or 300 feet below him.
What penetrating orbs of vision na-
ture has endowed this bird with!
There, he gives his lightninglike shot
to the water, seems almost submerged,
only to reappear with a four pound
pike in his talons. Slowly he rises,
going toward the woods, where he
hopes to enjoy his well earned meal,
but he has reckoned without his host.
The king of birds has been watching
his every movement and, if found sue-
-.cessful. is in readiness to exact that
tribute which the stronger always de-
mands and compels from the weak.
Almost quick as thought the eagle is
pursuing the hawk, and for a little
while a merry chase it is. But the
eagle is the master, and the hawk in-
stinctively feels it, as after a sudden,
violent swerve, only just to evade the
terrible claws of the now enraged
eagle, he drops the prize and slowly
flies to the other end of the lake.
There is no need for haste now, as
'The master was after tribute, not the
hawk. Payment having been made by
relinquishing valuable property, the

activity by catlflnfg the pike before it

An Ingenious Toper.
An eminent tragedian, given to in-
toxicants, was once locked up in a
room at the rear of the theater to keep
him in proper condition till he was call-
ed to go on the stage. One door of the
compartment opened on the street, and
while looking through the keyhole he
saw a man passing.
Calling him up to the door, he pushed
some money through a crack and in-
structed him to go to the public house
at the opposite corner and procure a
pint of gin and a clay pipe, promising
to reward him for his trouble.
The man did as directed, and when
he returned with the articles, the actor
told him to put the stem of the pipe
through the keyhole and pour the gin
carefully into the bowl.
These instructions the accommodat-
ing individual also followed, and the
result was that when the manager call-
ed to notify him of his turn he found
him in a very happy frame of mind,
but not at all in a condition calculated
to add to his fame as an actor.-Lon-

Horses In Bettle. *
One of the most curious sights to be
seen In a cavalry charge Is the various
riderless horses galloping in the line in
perfect order. At the charge of Bala-
klava the front rnatk of one regiment
was composed to a great extent of rid-
erless animals, their masters having
dropped one by one. It would seem
that in the excitement of thepaoment
the horses lose all conception of what
Is happening around them and proba-
bly fail to notice the fall of their rid-
The return of riderless horses to
camp is an almost certain sign of de-
feat. When a cavalry charge is suc-
cessful, the horses will, as I have said,
all keep up together, even though they
have lost their riders, but when a force
is routed the first news of ill omen to
those in the rear will be the return of
the horses with empty saddles and
stirrups dangling free. No more sorry
sight can be imagined. To illustrate
the callous feeling these animals have
under fire a case which happened at
Ladysmith during tlhe siege may be
cited. A farrier sergeant was engaged
In shoeing. an otli(er's horse in the open,
ground behind the stables of a hotel
and had already put one or two nails
into the shoe when a shell came scream-
ing through the air. The next mo-
ment the missile burst five or six yards
away from where the sergeant and the
horse were standing, and the splinters
flew around both, but failed to touch
either. When the smoke had cleared,
the horse was to ie seen with its foot
still in thi man's apron, quite undis-
turbed by the Incident. 7'earson's

no relief, so discharged him. I went
over to see him the next morning. He

him if he had tried Chamberlain's Colic,

Curlous African Cuatoms.
Among the human sacrifices of the
delta of the Niger, says Count de
Cardi, young girls occupy the most
honored place. They ar:e at regular
periods offered r. to the g-cds. and in-
st(ead of slii-l ...g from this horrible
(loom lhyeyacc(-)t it with pride and
gratitude. Nothing is refused to these
girls while they are alive. If one of
them sees a handsome dress or orna-
ment on a womnin and expresses a de-
sire to have it, tlhe woman must give it
to her. Men are also sacrificed, though
not for religious reasons, and they
welcome death as eagerly as the girls.
Count de Cardi once tried to save one
of these victims, hut instead of thank-
ing him, the man reviled him so bitter-
ly for interfering and scolded the by-
standers so heartily for delaying to
carry out the sentence that they
promptly stopped his mouth by killing

her. It is not superstition which Im-

tempt at deception .the Jacksonville
Capital League on the first page of
its pamphlet has the boldness to de-
liberately mistate the important ques-
tion now before the people of Flor-


The truthful statement of the
Capital removal issue sent out to
Florida voters by the Tallahassee
Capital League, has made the irre-
sponsible agitators angry. They
are writhing in agony, and talking
and acting wildly. They know the
people are on to their peculiar
methods, and that the people will
administer to them a mighty solar
plexus blow at the coming Capital lo-
cation primary, which will retire
thelm-to well deserved oblivion.
The Capital removal cry is the
onO and only political asset of a few
men. Six months ago they were
generals without armies, having
nothing to lose and all to gain.
Fatty degeneration of the consci-
ence having relieved them of all
scruples or sense of fairness, they

hunted up an issue which would
enable them to yell themselves into
notice by the most easily deceived
of heir immediate constituents, and
so iintoxicated were they made by
the temporary foothold which they
gained in the party's council as the
result of a Duval county factional
contest, that they have tossed reason
and argument to the winds, and
are now busily, though unwittingly,
engaged in destroying whatever
merit may lie in their side of the
unnecessary and undesired issue
wlich they have forced upon the
voters of Florida.
these voters are a fair-minded
and intelligent people. They know
thq origin and object of this Capital
removal agitation, and there is very
lite danger that they- will allow
their pockets to be fleeced anid their
homes mortgaged to gratify and en-
rich a scant handful of politicians
who have never contributed a nickel
towards fighting Democracy's hard
battles in past years, and whose
names appear on the tax books of
no county in this State.
The people of Florida are to be
congratulated upon their quick ap-
preciation of the danger which a
few discredited expounders of bad
law and worse politics had at-
tempted to. foist upon them. The
deliberate misrepresentations which
this ignoble -crew have spread over
the State are an insult to the intel-
ligence of Floridians, and all citi-
zens of the State who beleive in
eoonomical government and careful
preservation of the interests of the
tax payers, find much comfort in
contemplating the unmistakable re-
bake to greed and proposed ex-
tiavagance which the voters of
Florida-will administer to the reck-
less and irresponsible leaders of the
Capital removal chorus when the
primary'is held on the sixth of No-

It is with a feeling of profound
t.hnHrfnlness that the American peo-
ple will receive the glad news of the

eigneris were beleaguered in the.
British Legation compound, that they
were in continual danger of massa-
ore, being fired on night and day and
subject to a final and overwhelming
assault at any moment. In this time
of nervous strain there was but jone
thing certain-that if China permit-
ted the slaughter of the envoys she
must be made to pay the penalty to
its fullest limit.
The rescue of Conger, however,
lifts this duty of revenge and
bloody reprisal from the American
people. We have now to settle
with China on a basis of money
indemnity for the damages aris-
ing from the Boxer rebellion. It is
not legitimately our policy to take
advantage of the opportunity to seize
Chinese territory and to plant our
flag permanently on Chinese soil. If
land-grabbing is attempted by the
European Powers, as is most certain
to be the case, we have the right to
insist upon a full protection of
American trade rights in whatever
settlement may be effected. This
should be done, but beyond this the
United States Government should

We admire the push and enter-
prise of Jacksonville, and the united
energies of her citizens toward mak-
ing her the metropolis of the State.
Such laudable efforts will surely
bring a rich reward to any commu-
However, while we admire their
progressive strides, we no not forget
that there are other interests in Flor-
ida which should have consideration
besides that of making a great me-
tropolis of Jacksonville.
At present there are no factions in
the Democratic party of Florida,
while Jacksonville seeks to make the
Capital removal a political question
in every convention. The Democ-
racy is asked to join in the wrecking
of the present Capitol at Tallahassee
in order that Jacksonville may grat-
ify its ambition in having the
seat of government located there.
This would mean expenditure of
at least one million of dollars to the
tax-payers. Of this amount Nassau

than twenty thousand anllam wn,ril.

Especially ought we to refrain
from acting as the ally and tool of
England against Russia, France and
Germany. The matters in dispute
between those Governments are mat-
ters in which we are not vitally con-
cerned-certainly not to the extent
of becoming involved in the general
European war which may result
therefrom. If this -war must come,
principle and wise policy alike de-
mand that the United States shall
stand clear. Commercially, we have
everything to gain by such a course.
Politically, we have no right and no
business to interfere in Europe's
quarrels. It is to be hoped that the
traditional American policy shall
prevail in the settlement of the4
Chinese problem in so far as sucei
settlement affects us. -St. Louis Re-

Bryan as in Stregt Evry Day.
The New York World, which has
been ,considered antagonitic to
Bryan, in its issue of last Saturdayy
contains the following editor a
"The action of the Indt apolis
Convention is one of the of an
intellectual and moral movement
which is to the advantages of the
Democratic candidate.
"There is a great contrast between
the situation today and that of four
years.ago. In 1896 the independents
were practically all for Mr. M.Kin-
ley; this year many of them are for
Bryan. Any change, -indeed, must
have been favorable to the Demo-
cratic candidate. The mere allay-
men of excitement, the indecision of
some conservative men in choosing
their candidate, the willingness of
many more who supported Mr. Mc-
Kinleyin 1896 to consider calmly the
issues and the candidates of this year,
show that something has driven from
Mr. McKinley some of the most in-
telligent, the most unselfish and the
most patriotic of his supporters of
four years ago.
"The men who have turned away
from him are intellectuallyi among
the strongest men of an exceptional
class of citizens. They are the lead-
ers of those who put their country
above their party. Some -of them
were the glory and strength of tfhe
Republican cause in 1896. They are
now the glory and strength of the
Bryan cause.
"Call the roll of the InMnapolhi
convention, and mark the striking
loss in intellect and character which
Mr. McKinley has sustained and the
resultant gain to Mr. Bryan. Mr.
Schurz is now against the Republi-
|can candidate, and no one knows
better than Mr. McKinley himself
that here he has lost and Mr. Bryan
has gained the most eloquent and
potent toator who spoke for the Re-
publican candidate iu 1896. If any
other speaker approached Mr.
Schurz in interest and effectiveness
it was Mr. Bourke Cochran. He is
for Mr. Bryan because, as he says in
bhis letter to the Indianapolis conven-
tion, he believes that Mr. Bryan's
election of itself would put a quietus
on the imperialistic venture, while if
the Republican party succeeds, 'at
the end of four years imperialism
will be so firmly imbedded in our
political life that it can never be ex-
pelled.' The venerable George S.
Boutwell, ex-senator and ex-secre.-
tary, says: *In my age, I leave the
Republican party now that it has
surrendered itself to despotic and
tyrannical motives.' Moorfield
Storey, Charles Sumner's private
secretary and biographer, declares
against Mr. McKinley. Edward M.
Bhepard, one of the ablest of the
Qold Democrats of New York, and
one of Mr. McKinley's ardent sup.
porters four years ago, announces
that he will work and vote for Mr.

at the bebtst of their party, isan-
other of me commanding figures
whom Mr. !McKinley has lost and
Mr. Bryan -as gained.
"These aie but the names of some
of the leaders. They are not isolated
thinkers. 'They stand for many
thousands the best citizens of the
Republic, ioese thoughts and pur-
poses they )re expressing.

"What j the meaning of the
change? marily it is due to Mr.
McKinley himself. He has deceived
and disapp inted and angered many
of the mei who four years ago,
deemed it he duty of all patriotic
and honest men to vote for him.
Now they ,egard hmn as a menace t&
republican, institutions. They are
still gold standard men.. They have.
not change their principles. They
have counted the cost of electing
Mr. Bryan J They are willing to pay
it, whatever it may be, in order to rid
the country of McKinleyism and its
dangers. They are against imperiil-
ism, against the denial of the princi-
ples of thejDeclaration of Independ.
ence, against executive or legislative
rule outside of the Constitution,
against thl greed which surrounds
the country with that atmosphere of
corruption which is inseparable from
money-seeking politics.
"But while Mr. McKinley's con-
duct explains the change which has
taken plaOe during the four years,
Mr. Bryan himself has grown since
his nomination six weeks ago-first
by reason' of his wise silence on
the silver question, and second
by his remarkable speech accepting
the Democratic nomination. -The
speech will go down in histcrv alone
of the most effective utterances ever
made by a candidate. Besides its
thoughtfulness, its eloquence, its able
marshalling of arguments, we must
recognize; the fine sagacity which
caught the public imagination and
satisfied t.e public mind by full ac-
ceptance of its uppermost thought.
His silence on the silver question
has the sasie quality of sagacity. If
be had nlc maintained it so studi-
ously and steadfastly since his nomi-
nation at ansas City the action of
the India polis convention might
have beei different, and he would
undoub y have driven off much
support t t he has now attracted.

Some Ink and a Shirt.
I once remember having a noted Lon-
don doctor out at sea for a little ama-
teur fishing. He would like to see a
1ligo cuttle caught, he said. I warned
him of what was likely to happen when
gaffing was on, but he did not care.
"Surely," he said, "I can dodge such
guesswork as this must be for so short
a time."
I felt dubious as to the result, seeing
his white shirt was a prominent object
through his having such an open vest.
Finally a cuttle took the bait, and as I
drew it toward us the doctor lost all
thought of himself and his adornments
in his admiration of the movements
and the beautiful eyes of the creature
when in an instant, as I gaffed it, the
whole ink charge struck him in the
throat and sadly blackened his white
habiliments.-Contemporary Review.

Costly Violins.
The current value of Stradivarius
violins in London is said to range from
80 to 800. In Stradivarius' own time
one Cervetto of London received a con-
signment of the master's instruments
which he was commissioned to sell for
4 apiece. But he was obliged to send
them back, as no Englishman at that
time would buy them at any such fig-
ure. Stradivarius himself is said to
have asked a price of 4 louis d'or for
each of his violins.

Under Water.
Strange acquaintances are to be
made under water. H. Phelps Whit-
marsh, who for a time adopted the
calling of pearl fisher in Australian
waters, tells this story of meeting a
submarine monster:
"It was a muddy day, and every-
thing in consequence looked blurred
and exaggerated. In the yellow dista":-e
I saw an-immense dark object mov ;
slowly toward me. As it came nearer
I made out a central body with several
great arms, or feelers, waving rhyth-
-mically. My heart was in my mouth.
"I felt sure it was an octopus. Then,
when I was about to stir up the mud
at my feet to avoid being seen, I dis-
covered that the enemy was nothing
more than a fellow diver. The feelers
I had imagined were his arms, legs and
"A shadowy giant about 12 feet
high; with huge hands and a head like
a small barrel, was approaching. He
walked slowly, his heavy boots raising
the mud behind him like a cloud of
dust, and his great central eye gleamed
darkly. Although I knew him to be a
man, it was with difficulty that I re-
frained from taking to my heels. At
sight of me he, too, was startled, but
he quickly recovered, and we shook
hands. Then we nodded, grinned,
showed each other the state of our
bags aJL< :tart~_."

"I am a switchman," writes A. J.
Jennesse, of 9201 Butler St., Chicago.
"and am out in all kinds of weather. I
took a cold which settled in my kidney
and was in very bad shape. I tried sev-
eral advertised medicines with no benf-
fit until I was recommended to take Fo-
ley's Kidney Cure. Two-thirds of a
bottle cured me. Wight & Bro.

,Tre Disputed Name of the War.
The Confederate Veterans, in their
annual convention in Louisville. decid-
ed that the war of 1861-5 should be
known as the "war between the
states." This is the name that Alexan-
der H. Stephens favored, and it is the
one generally used by the people of the
south in speaking of that war, the
northern people calling it the rebellion.
Strange it Is that neither name is a cor-
rect definition of the event All. know
that there was no rebellion. States that
had sovereignty could not be guilty of
rebellion. Neither was it a war be-
tween the states,' but actually a war,
between two governments made up of
states. Some writers call it a civil war,
yet it was not a war between citizens
in their civil capacity, but, as before
said, a war between regularly organ-
ized governments. There is, in fact, no
concise way of naming the conflict;
hence these misnomers. Possibly the
best title would be the simple one of
calling it by the years of Its beginning
and close-namely, the war of 18G1-5.-

Couldn't Resist.
An eccentric clergyman in Cornwall
had .been much annoyed by the way
the members of the congregation had
of looking around ;o see late comers.
After enduring it for some time he
said on entering the reading desk one
day: "Brethren, I regret to see that
your attention is called away from
your religious du es by your very
natural desire to ee who comes in
behind you. I pr ose henceforth to
save you the troupe by naming each
person who may co e late."
He then began, I"Dearly beloved,"
but paused half way to interpolate.
, "Mr. S., with his w4fe and daughter."
Mr. S. looked rather surprised, but
the minister, with perfect gravity, re-
sumed. Presently he again paused.
"Mr. C. and Williagh D."
The abashed congregation kept their
ey studiously beat on their books.
The service proceeded in the most or-
derly manner, the parson interrupting
aimself .every nowj and then to name
some newcomer. At last he said, still
with the satne perfect gravity:

for years. The date of the letter found
in the forecastle showed that the brig

century before. The two sailors got
out the furs, which eventually brought
them 84.000, and two barrels of beef
and then set fire to the wreck. No trace
was ever found of its name or owners.
A Jolly Funeral.
An Italian doctor named Louis Cor-
tusio, who died In the eighteenth cen-
tury. left some curious Instructions as
to the manner of his burial This gen-
tleman, by his will, forbade his rela-
tions to weep at his funeral on pain of
being disinherited and appointed him
or her who should laugh the longest
and loudest the principal heir and leg-
atee. Not a stitch of black was to be
displayed either in the house in which
he should die or in the church in which
he should be buried. They were both
to, be strewn with flowers and green
boughs on the day of his funeral. -In-
stead of the tolling of bells lively mu-
sic was to accompany his body to the,
church, and 50 minstrels were to march
with the clergy sounding their flutes.
trombones and trumpets. The bier
was to be carried by 12 marriageable
girls clothed in green, to each of whom
the testator bequeathed a sum of mon-
ey for her dowry. Lastly, no one in,
the procession was to wear black. All
these orders were absolutely carried
into affect.-Household Words.

This Man Knew a Steamboat When
He Saw One.
The agent of one of the ocean steam-
ship lines, says the Chicago Tribuue.
told the following story of a St. Louis
man who got into New York the day
after the maiden arrival of a great
After gazing at the vessel from the
pier the St. Louisan said'to the uman at
the gangplank:
"Purty good sized steamboat."
"She's a liner, ocean liner," was the
lofty reply.
"She's purty high up, ain't she?"
"Ocean liners have to be. But when
she is under way she doesn't look so
"Her chimneys ain't very high,
"You mean her funnels. No; they
never make them high for liners."
"Hinges on 'emr?"
"Never heard of hinges on a funnel."
"How does she get under the
"What bridge?'
"Why, any bridge. Steamboats out
our way have hinges on their chim-
neys, and when they come to the
bridges over the river they lower the
chimneys, and she scoots under like
she was greased."
The man at the gangplank observed
the St Louis man with lofty indiffer-
"She ain't got any wheelhouses on
her sides nor none at her stern," re-
marked the St. Louis man after he had
made further inspection.
"Liners have propellers," said the
man at the gangplank, and his nose
turned up visibly.
"Well, I'll bet she can't run. It takes
two wheels and a bow like an arrow-
head and a scant hold to give a steam-
boat speed, sonny, and don't you forget
it. If this steamboat was to get into
the Mihsissippi, she'd go hard aground
first clip."
"I have tolt'you this is not a steam-
"Shucks! You can't gimme that I
saw a picter of her in one of our news-
papers before I left home, and the
printin under it said 'steamboat.' Do
you think a St. Louis editor don't know
a steamboat when he sees one? You're
not on to your job yet."

It Is a Loan, Strogr Sword, the
Bpee de Combat, and WIth It,
Were the Coibatants Seo IellUed,
Serious Imjrles Could Be ^nflited.

Persons other than French are wont
to maintain in spite of the occasional
pin pricks that the French duelists in-
flict on one another that French duel-
ing is a French face. But Frenchmen
and sometimes other persons in*sym-
pathy with them insist upon being tak-
en seriously. They insist that dueling
with swords, which is the real thing in
French duels, is not child's play and
that compared with it the old fashion-
ed Anglo-Saxon resort to a "pair of
fives" is brutality not to be thought of
by the scraping smirker of the boule-
The French habit of settling disputes
by resort to duels with swords has de-
veloped a national dueling weapon, the
epee de combat, a long and strong
blade with three triangular grooves
tapering to a keen point, with edges
that never are used save for defense.
The hand is protected with a broad,
round guard shaped like the gong upon
an alarm clock. The handle is straight,
with no other incumbrance, and bal-
anced by a heavy pommel which pro-
jects beyond the root of the thumb
when the weapon is held ready for a
It is a modern development of the
rapier with which Cyrano de Bergerac
fought the bullies of Paris. It shows
traces of its descent through the ele-
gant court sword which was coming
into being when D'Artagnan became a
field marshal In the "Due de Brage-
lonne." But its hilt makes It impossi-
ble for ordinary wear in its present
shape, and the epee de combat is the
weapon of the French duelist and of
him alone.
In 1888 General Boulanger and M.
Floquet found it necessary to settle
their differences at the sword's point.
The critics had not much difficulty in
picking the winner between a civilian
president of the chamber of deputies
well advanced in years who had limit-
ed his practice to sparrow shooting
with a pistol and a brave general" in
the full ardor of his life whose sword
was the symbol of his profession. Yet
they were utterly mistaken.
If M. Floquet was no swordsman, he
was full of quiet pluck and common
sense, and he practiced one stroke only
the night before the fight. A dozen
times, though not too many to make
his old limbs stiff the next day, he
might have been seen in a well known
sales d'armes straightening his arm
and raising his wrist until he could
only just see the point of his sword
above and beyond the ball of his
thumb. The next day Boulanger made
a furious attack, with many stamps
and flourishes. The little president
stiffened his back, threw out his point.
and the unlucky general impaled his
neck upon the blade. Boulanger recov-
ered. to die by his own hand after
"Bonuangisni" had been discredited.
"Harry Alis" of the Debats suffered
much more quickly from the effects of
the epee. His real name was Hippolyte
Percher. and In fighting a captain of
infantry on the lie de la Grande Jalte
about certain scandals connected with
the French Kongo he was hit in the
right armp't and bled to death.
The duel fought by Catulle Mendes
in May of 1899 was almost as serious,
and it was caused while Bernhardt
was playing "Hamlet" by some fatu-
ous quarrel over the physical develop-
ment of the prince of Denmark. M.
Vanor, Mendes' opponent was a fine
swordsman and, sportsmanlike enough
to recognize the double advantages he
enjoyed, contented himself with parry-
ing correctly. Catulle Mendes threw
himself on his adversary's point and
was severely wounded in the stomach
on almost the same ground where
Percher had been killed several years
It often is urged outside of France
that French dueling consists in merely
pricking your man in the hand or fore-
arm, as the least disablement is held to
"satisfy the honor" of the combatants.
But the hand and arm of an adversary
are those parts of him which are near-
est to you and which you can reach
with the least exposure of your own

The wound that is produced by trans-
fixing a hand. which may be protected
only by the ordinary kid glove of social
custom, is not only totally disabling,
but also extremely painfuL Soldiers
who have been shot in the palm inva-
riably collapse for a time with the
acute agony produced by the rupture
of so many delicate nerve centers. A
,thrust in the forearm is equally effect-
ive, for it disables all the muscles and
ligaments that enable a man to hold
and manipulate his sword.
But though a fine duelist Is always
capable of these particular thrusts--
and they are far more various than
would be imagined at first sight-he
has by no means exhausted his strokes
when these have all been., parried. At-
tacks in what is called the "lower line"
are frequently successful and Invaria-
bly produce an awkward wound when
they succeed. The throat is as vulner-
able and as often attacked as is the
chest, and it must be remembered that
