This is how a Kansas newspaper
man criticised Paderewski:
"We heard the Polander Paderewski
play the piano in Convention hall. Kan-

makes you think all the time he is go-
ing to play a tune, but he never does.
He flirts all around a tune. but. never
touches it. His hair looks like a wig.
but it isn't. He deceives you in a hun-
dred ways. He makes the sweetest
sounds you ever heard that were not a
tune. He has his piano so trained that
the doggone thing will keep right on
playing when he is not touch-g it.
He reaches out slowly and stro. es it.
drawing back his elbows like a man
brushing a girl's hair. You s'e the
moonlight, and you're there with your
girl. but somehow she doesn't love you.

President lliot of Harvard told this
story at a dinner:
"A friend jof mine. a college pro-
fessor, went fito a crowded restaurant
in New York city for luncheon one hot
day last summer. The negro in charge
of the big corridor where the hat
shelves stood! was an intelligent look-
ing fellow, an!d his bow and smile were
not of the obsequious, stupid kind so
often affected by colored waiters and
doormen in hbtels. He took my friend's
hat and gave'no cheek for it in return.
An hour later. when the professor
came out of the dining room. the negro
glanced at him in a comprehensive
way. turned to the shelves andehanded
him his hat. j
"My friend is a man who prides him-
self on his powers of observation, and
the negro's ability to remember to
whom each article of clothing belonged

rose and saw a damp spot on the seat.
Supposing that a few drops of water
had been accidentally dropped upon the
seat before he sat down to his work.
he folded an old newspaper and placed
it and sat comfortably down to resume
his work. But the moisture seemed
strangely persistent Rising again, he
found the paper becoming soaked with

time to get in harmonious working

There are so e. seeds which "literal-
ly corksnerew themselves into the
ground." Thd most remarkable in-
stance is perhaps that of the Spina
pennata. a beautiful south European
grass. The actual seed is small, with
a sharp poini and stiff short hairs
pointing back -ard. The top end of
the seed is pr nduced into a fine, twist-
ed. corkscrewt Ike rod, which is fol-
lowed by a plin cylindrical portion.
ending in a long. delicate feather, the
whole being more than a foot in length.
Owing to this. feather the seed falls to
the earth poiit downward and sticks
in the ground
But even if the seed should settle on
its side. damp. by acting on the hairs
attached to it. causes it to rise up till
its point is downward. If a shower
comes on or dow falls, the spiral un-
winds. elongating itself upward. Be-
ing covered, like the seed. with back-
ward pointing hairs, it usually presses
against somn blade of grass or other
obstacle. with the result that the seed
is pressed into the ground.
On the spiral becoming dry again, it
curls up. and the seed is not drawn
out of the ground owing to its back-
ward ointitiij hairs. but the spiral and
the feather Are easily drawn down. On
the return of damp the spiral again un-
winds and. acting azs b4lbore. drives the
seed still fartlhr down until at last it
is quite buried.

: The manufacturers Record says
that the State Capitol of South Caro-
lina is just being completed. At the
last session of the Legislature $175,-
-000 was appropriated, with which.
amount it was hoped the building
could be finished--a sum by the
way nearly double the amount prom-
ised by Jacksonville. With the above
appropriationp the tax-payers of South
Carolina will have spent $2,300,000
on their new Capitol. And, judging
from the cut of the building shown in
the Record, it is no larger than the
Capitol at Tallahassee. The tax-
payers of Florida will not let them-
selves be fooled into beginning an un-
dertaking the cost of which (before a
single plan has been drawn) has been
estimated would be $1,200,000, to

"inaugurated andpursued primarily
for the purpose of advancing Jack-
villes best interests."
A well-known young Jacksonville
man in this city last week, made
some interesting comments on the
pending Capital location issue.
Among other things, he said: "Jack-
sonville is my home, and I shall, on
account of local pride and loyalty
to my home town, vote to have the
State Capital moved to Jacksonville;
but if I was a large tax-payer, I
would never think of piling on the
great additional burden of taxation
which this Capital movement is sure
to make necessary. One can form
an idea as to how much the first ap-
propriation for removal will be, but
how are we to know where the cost
will stop. It would be a fine thing for
Jacksonville, but mighty tough on
the tax-payers of the rest of the the
lion. Henry E. Day, Chairman of
the Railroad Commission of Florida,
has been in attendance upon the Con-
vention of Southern .Railroad Comn.
sioners at Lookout Mountain. He
took a very prominent part in the va-
rious discussions which came up and
advanced the idea of a uniform clas-
sification for the Southern States.
A committee of prominent Commis-
sioners was appointed by the meeting
to take the matter up and Mr. Day
made chairman of the committee.
Mr. Day is well posted on railroad
rates, classifications, etc., and we are
not surprised that he should become
one of the most conspicuous figures
at such a meeting as the one men
tioned. He- is expected home to-
morrow or Saturday.
The Times-Union of August 28th
announces a condition of affairs in
Jacksonville that does not present a
very encouraging outlook, for the
payment of that $100,000.00 bonus
offered as an inducement for getting
the Capital removed to that enter-
prising city. It seems from the state-
ment of that paper that there is due
to the 'city by property owners, on
account of paving, about $66,000.00,
a part of which has been due for
about ten years, and that legal steps
are about to be taken to compel pay-

It has always beeh oonside ed the
highest duty of the Chairman of the
Democratic State Executive Com-
mittee to harmonize conflicting inter
ests within the party, and-to promote

we find the Chairman taking the lead
in creating divisions in the party and
actively engaged in separating' the
party into conflicting factions. Can
the integrity of the party be pre-

A New Capital.
At the State Convention a section
of the platform declared the present
Capitol not commodious enough for
the present demands of the State, and
demanded that ample accommoda-
tions be provided.
Now the white Democratic voters
of the State are called upon to decide
whether Tallahassee or some other
place shall be the Capital. When
the voters come to the polls to cast a,
ballot let them ask the following
First. Do 'the present needs de-
mand a removal of the Capital?
Second. Will it be profitable to
the tax-payer of the State to move
the Capital and incur a bonded in.
debtedness of $1,000,000.00, an
pay interest on it at the rate of *40,j
000.00 per annum, to satisfy thq
whims of a few politicians? "
Third. Will it not do as well td
spend a nominal sum in repairs o
the present building and not try t<
raise $1,000,000.00 on $94,000,000.09
worth of property, thus adding
largely to the burdens of the taxes
payer who has no business at the
Capital and does not go there more
than once in a life time?
Fourth. Is it for the interest of the
dear people of the State or what
Jacksonville can get out of it, th t
its.papers are howling so about ? _t
is not the burdens of the people or
the convenience of anyone, it s
'simply what will the Capital
worth to that city.
Fifth. Are the voters of Taylor
county ready to vote for a measure
that will increase their taxes and 1 e
of no material advantage to anyone ?
It is to be hoped that every De i-
ocratic vote in the county will be cst
against a measure that is not fai ly
placed before the people. a
SIt is a question that should be s b-
mitted to every tax-payer in the
State and not a part of them. That
a part of the citizens should vote to
settle an indebtedness upon the
whole State is not in keeping 'ith
the spirit of our Constitution.-g'he

Instantly killed by inhaling one whiff

Pure prosaic acid is never sold or

fatal. It kills not in three minutes or
half ani hour, but the instant it enters
the lungs as a gas. The mixture or-

In this form it is very deadly. A 20
per cent mixture of the acid would kill
nearly as .quickly as If pure.

would adhere to the end of a moistened
forefinger would instantly cause death.

About the middle of the seventeenth
century the tulip became known In
Germany, and a scientist named Ges-
ner gives the first, description of this
flower. First only the yellow variety
was known, and then other colors were
produced by crossing. The Dutch, par-
ticularly the citizens of Haarlem. pro-
duced the most wonderful varieties of
this flower and obtained enormous
prices for them.
In 1634 the trade in tulips assumed a
peculiar turn. It degenerated Into a
sort of a game of chance, so that in
1673 the authorities felt called upon to
Interfere and to issue edicts against
extravagance in tulips, as they former-
ly had against trains and laces. This
interference would seem to be justified
if one reads that in 1006 a single flower
of this sort, called the Viceori. was
paid for with two cargoes of wheat.

was paid for with 4,600 gold guilders
and a coach with ai double team of
horses. In Haarlem the tulip craze
reached its height in thdecado from
1630 to 1640, when a price of "12.000
gold guilders (about $9.000 American
money) is recorded for a single bulb.
A Joke of Sydney Smith's.
On the occasion of a dinner Sydney
Smith was the guest, and when the
evening was over the host thanked
the wit heartily for the entertainment
he had afforded. "I shall not forget
you, Mr. Smith." he added. "Thank
you. Take care you don't forget your-
self tomorrow (it was Saturday) in
church." rejoined Smith. whereat the
host. Kershaw by name, rather bridled
"I hope, sir. I know how to behave
myself in church!" "Well." said Smith
good temperedly, "if I catch you smil-
ing I will call you by name." "You
may," rejoined the visitor. "The thing
is absurd. I will give you a donation
to the York hospital If it happens."
On the ensuing morning Smith read
the prayers reverently, as he always
did, tnen ascended the pulpit, looked
around the church and rested his eye
on the visitor whose name was Ker-
shaw. That gentleman said afterward
that he did not know what possessed
him. but so It was he gave a broad
smile. Thereupon the preacher .was
seized with a violent inclination to
sneeze, and, applying his handkerchief
with suitable action, he sounded "ker-
ker k-ker-shaw" three times over.-

Her Timely Gift.
In common with other women. Mrs.
Brown delights in a bargain, and when
she observed the advertisement of a
great fire and water sale in one of the
department stores she repaired there
without delay. There were many fine
works of seleneg, travel, history, re-
ligion and fiction to be had for a song
each, but her eyes rested on a hand-
somely bound copy of "The Life of
General Grant," and she bought It for
her brother. Of course, It would not
be fair to tell what she paid for it.
"The next day her brother came over
to thank her. "It's fine." he said. "I
haven't got very far in it yet, but I
know It's going to be good. When lit-
tle Jane gets along a little further in
her German I'm going to have her
read me a bit of It every evening. I

In German, a mighty handy thing to
have around the house." Since then
Mrs. Brown has never bought a fire or
water book without looking carefully
on the inside of it.-Worcester (Mass.)
Indigestive poisons are the bane of the
dyspeptic's life. When sick, see if your
sickness is caused by indigestive poisons.
If so, take Shaker 'Digestive Cordial.
This is the only certain way of being
permanently cured, because it is the
only way that gets rid of the poisons.
You know that fermented food is poi-
sonous. You know that poison is un-
healthy. Shaker Digestive Cordial
clears the stomach of fermenting food,
and purifies the blood and system of in.

SJleke on Offenbach.
M. Erest Blum told a Joke Which
he andl sme friends played on Offen-
bach w en "La Belle Helene" was
about toW; be produced. The composer
was most anxious-that'his airs should
not get bout before the first night ard
had askqd all his company to be most
careful hot to let any one hear them,
but his 'tunes were so catchy that it
was impossible to help singing them.
One d*y Blum and his friends were
sitting opposite Offenbach in a cafe
when one of them began to hum a lead-
ing air 9f "La Belle lhelene."
"Who taught you that?" cried Offen-
bach in; a rage.
"No one." replied Blum. "I have
known it for ages," and they all agreed
that their nurses used to sing it to
them when they were children. Pres-
ently Albert Wolff. who was one of the
party, began to sing another 'of the
"What!" cried Offenbach, "you know
"I composed it myself," said Wolff.
Offenbach then saw tLat they were
playing a practical Joke on him and de-
mandod the name of the singer who
had spng them the opera. They re-
fused.'and so the composer threatened
that he would fine every one in the
theater unless they told him. So Blum
and bhis friends stood up and oegan
the first chorus of the first act and de-
clareG they would sing the finale before
the -whole cafe unless Offenbach re-
lenteq. The composer. in terror for
his tr usic, gave in. beaten by his own
facility in writing inusic.

An elastic play of the muscles of the

the face as well. Next to the eyes. the
mouth has the greatest significance in
the play of the features. When all
the muscles of the mouth are in nor-

; The Place of the Duel.
Mrs; Minnie Walter Myers. in het
"Romiance and Realism of the South-
ern Gulf Coast." gives an account of
one of the last challenges to a duel
which occurred' in Louisiana. The af-
fair was between M. Marigny. who be.
longed to one of the oldest families of
Louisiana, and Ai Mr. Humble, a sturdy
ex-blaiksmith of Georgia, who had be-
come man of political consequence.
M. Marigny took offense at some re-
marks of the Georgian and sent him a
challenge. The big ex-blacksmith was
"I Iknow nothing about this dueling
business," he said. "I will not fight

gentleman can refuse."
"I &im not a gentleman," replied the
hones son of Georgia. "I am only a
"But you will be ruined if you do not
fight.' urged his friends. "You will
have the choice of weapons, and you
can eooose so as to give yourself an
equally chance with your adversary."
The; giant asked time In which to
consider the question and ended by ac-
cepting. He sent the following reply
to M. Marigny:
"I gt. and in the exercise of my
pril g I stipulate that the duel shalB
take place in Lake Pontehartraln. In

Always iacee the EnUKne.
In his prime the late Mr. John. Cook,
the great tourist agent, was a man of
iron frame. But when years of rail-
way traveling, which averaged annual-
ly some 40.000 miles. produced certain
alarming symptoms, he made a dis-
covery that may be worth giving to
the public. He found that the threat-
ened trouble. something spinal, dis-
appeared when he no longer sat with
his back to the engine. He always
thereafter faced it. and that the prin-
ciple is sound will be borne out by
others whom he advised to do the
same. All who are called upon to do
much railway traveling will be wise to

A Cold Night In Canada.
The sky at night is a deep dark blue,
and the stars are like dropping balls of
fire. so close they seem to be almost
within reach. The northern lights look
as If a titaiie paint brush had been
dipped in phosphorescent flame and

As you pass the electric lamps you
see very fine particles of snow caught
up by the wind and glittering high in
the air like diamonds. But it is a cold
night, and you are not sorry to get into
your room. First of all. you take a
blanket or so from the bed, for there
are people in Canada who sleep all the
year round with only a sheet over
them,. to such a pitch of perfection

The fpar of poison in, a lacerated

Ini quite sufficient to- give a

lands lately added to the empire used
polsoneC arrows and many white men
shot by them died in tetanic convul-
sions, including one very horrible; case
of a commander in the navy wh bhatl
made a speciall study of tetanus.
At length the French governor of
New Caledonia, noticing that the symp-
toms exhibited were not consistent
with thq use of any known poison, ap-
pointed a medical commission to in-
quire into' the affair, when it was dis-
covered Athat the arrows of the natives
were no" poisoned at all, although con-
structe in such a way that a small
piece on the bone point almost always
remained in the wound. The irritation
produced by this prevented the wound
from heling quickly, and the mental
disturbance produced by fear and per-
haps ch ge of climate did the rest.
It waq discovered at, the same time
that th. natives of other Islands who
firmly believed in the' poison theory
seldom suffered much Inconvenience
from the arrow wounds, because they
believed that the spells given them by
their own sorcerers prevented the poi-

On Friday a. m. Aug. 24, death
invaded the home of.Mr. and Mrs.
S. A. Cox and bore away the spirit
of Mr. Cox.
Death is always sad, but consider-
ing the circumstances surrounding
this one, it is peculiarly so.
The subject seemed such a strong,
[robust man. But "last Friday two
weeks ago he was taken with a burn-
ing fever, quickly followed by con-
gestion. The disease rapidly devel-
oped into typhoid malarial, attacking
the brain, and he became violently

and friends were done, b'it it seems

pressibly sad that he passed away
not recognizing even a member of
his family. But God is just.
Mr. Cox's presence will be sorely
missed here. He possessed a very
Sjovial disposition and everybody
liked him, these are the friends so
much needed to smooth life's rugged
pathway and dispel the gloom.
In the capacity of nurse he was al-
most unexcelled. When a friend of
his was very ill he remained almost
constantly by his bedside trying to
nurse him back t4 health and
strength; and when the end came
still rendered.valuable aid. A beau-
tiful trait in his character.
But it was in his home that his
virtues shone most clearly. Being
devotedly attached to his family he
made a tender, loving husband and a
dear father. He leaves a heart-
broken wife and three, sons-the old-
