Next Monday night at 8 o'clock
there will be rendered at the opera
house a very interesting program of
the third anniversary exercises of
the Platonic .Debating Society of
the West Florida Seminary. The
speakers on the debate are among
the older members of the society,
and the question to be discussed is a
live one and one of importance to
every citizen just at this time.
Besides the debate, the society has
extended its program somewhat in
having the acceptance of the Hon.
W. N. Sheats to address the mem-i

A Gift to Give.
It is often difficult to decide what
aet your friend for holiday gifts. He n
. is -a suggestion:
"Good morning. Jennie. I havE
brought you a nice present," said Ger
trudeas she handed her friend a. neatly
wrapped package. ... .
The pale, weary looking girl, who was
slowly recovering from severe illness,
Sopened the bundle and held up a large
bottle of clear, rich medicine.
"Hood's Sarsaparilla'" she exclaimed
"I have been reading about it today and
, wished I had a bottle.
On New Year Day Jennie was able tc
be out o the street, and to her friend,
who remarked how well she was look-
ing she simply said, "Hood's Sarsapa
riua," and every one of them knew ii
was this great medicine thathad giveE

may increase to 100,000. The Dem-
ocrats made no attempt to prevent'
its passage, knowing it to be useless.
By a parliamentary trick, the bill was
sent to the Senate as a substitute for
the artillery bill passed by the upper
House last May, and thus would not
ordinarily come up for general de-
bate in that body. By this means, it
was hoped to prevent a full discus-
sion of its clauses, and to force the
Seniate to vote outright on its accep- i
tance or rejection. It goes without
saying that this was a very doubtful
subterfuge, as the bill as passed bore
absolutely no resemblance to the'
original one that passed the Senate,
and it was very properly sat down
upon in the upper body, where it is
announced, it will be fully debated.
The Senate it i- hoped, will insist on
restoring the staff provisions recom-
mended by Secretary Root and
stricken out in the House Commit-
tee on Military Affairs by the influ-
ence of the bureau chiefs. In the
Senate are two Ex-Secretaries of
War, Senators Proctor and Elmins,
both of whom declare positively that
the bill shall either pass with the
staff propositions or not at all. Al-
though they may not exactly mean
this, their influence makes it proba-
ble that the provisions will bh incor-
porated in the bill as signed by the
The discussion of the Hay-Paun-
cefote treaty in Executive session in
the Senate has shed new light on the
subject and has shown more plainly
than before how absolute is the sur-
render of Secretary Hay ,to the
-wishes of Great- Britain. It is now
admitted that if the'treaty be ratified
as submitted and without -amend-,
ment, it will permit free passage of.
the canal to an enemy of the United
States which can get within the three
miles limit and will preserve that
enemy from all attack until it; gets
three miles beyond the other termi-
nus.. To this the honor of the Uni-
ted States will be pledged. Even
the Davis amendment will not per-
mit fortifications, as most people be-
lieve, but it will allow the United
States to send its fleets to hover off
the mouths of the canals and engage
any enemy that tries to enter. As
the treaty stands, this is prohibited.
What is probably the most outrag-
eous bill of its kind ever proposed
was reported favorably by the House
Civil Service Commiittee, by snap ac-
tion, sometime ago and will soon come
up for consideration in the House.
The bill is simple enough on its face
and until its provisions are explained,
would seem reasonable enough. It
provides that all veterans, for what-
ever cause they left the service, shall
have priority of appointment an I
promotion in all grades of the civil
service, no matter how much more
useful and able others may be. The
viciousness of the bill lies in its dis-
regard of the State apportionments
in making appointments and propor-
tions. At present, government
clerkships are apportioned amonn
the States according to their popula-
tion. That is to say each- State has
whit is called its .iuota of appoint-
ments. When vacancies occur in a
State's quo'a they are filled by exam-
inations held in that State. This
new bill disregards. this plan of appor-
tionment. For instance, if there is a
vacancy for apportionment or pro-
motion in Losisiana's quota, and a
Union veteran from Maine who
served for thiee months in the war

President MSKinley and Sedretary
Gage are letting it be known, that
y are very mnch opposed to the
p qfotio adopted by the House
.oiNV ee on Waypqand Means to
cut down the war taxes by 440,000,-
0)0 per year. A reduction of $30,-
0000,000 wais recommended by the
President amd this would have been
easily arranged, had it not been for
the brewers. But the cut of nearly-
$10,000,000 in the tar on their pro-
duct is'the rub. However, this will
stand, .whatever else has to be taxed
to make up the difference. The
strength of the movement for the re-
duction of this tax may be under-
stood from the fact that the sudden
conversion of the Ways and Means
'Committee is generally credited to
Speaker flenderson himself, and it is
significant that the- change was not
made until after the Speaker's-most
recent appointee, Mr. Babcock, of
Wisconsin, came into the committee.
Mr. Babcock, it will pe remembered,
was Chairman of 4h. Republican
Congressional Camp4igir Committee
and no doubt "touched" the brewers
for their subscriptions. Now he is
repaying the debt. The brewers

thing which struck my eyes was the
quaintness and -unquestioned age of
the old inn. It was a relic of the days
when feudal lords still warred with
one another and the united kingdom
was undreamedt of. It looked to be
300 years old and might have been
more. From. time to'time it had un-

by. thick rowp of untrimmed hedges
and was partly concealed from view
by oaks and chestnuts. The gardens
were full of roses all In bloom, and
their perfume hung heavy on the
moist air. And within a stone's throw
of the rear- the Danube noiselessly slid
along its green banks. All I knew
about the Inn was that It had been by

was made to feel at home. From the

"Ah." I thought. "a barmaid! If she
is pretty. It will be a diversion."
In the course of my wanderings I
had seen few barmaids worth looking
