from all Sections of State.

Inauguration Day at the Capital.
.s one of the fairest that ever
awned-blue skies, sparkling sun-
ie and balmy breezes all contribu-
ed to the general feeling of enthn-
iasm. As early as Sunday the
rains arrived filled with visitors and
militia, and by Monday night the
streets were thronged with. hand-
0ome soldiery in bright uniforms
ind lovely women from all sections
of fair Florida. On Tuesday at 10
o'clock the parade formed on Mon.

preceded by Grand Marshal R. A.

ily cheered. The oath of office
was then administered by Chief us-
tice Fenwick I. Taylor, and Gov.
Jennings then delivered his inaugural
address, which was received with
great applause by the large gather-
ing of enthusiastic citizens. lie
said:
FRIENDS. Axi FETJALW CITIZENS-Be-
fore entering upon the duties of the first
executive of our state, to which I have
been elected by the deliberate and tran-
quil suffrages of the electors of Florida,
it is meet that I should avail myself of
this occasion to express my gratitude'to
nasy fellow citizens for so distinguished
a rank of confidence. It iis impossible
to express this gratitude in mere words,
aod I can best Iefect my sense of the
honor and its obligations by pledging to
the people of our state my most sincere
purpose to perform the duties of the
office of governor of Florida with all the
abilities that I possess, to the end that
the people may enjoy the best possible
administration of the laws of the state.
SI recognize with pride the presence of
tae Florida state troops, who have so
uanerously enlisted and stand ready to
fend the state and its citizenship and
enforce the law, and I bespeak a liberal
policy to this organization as well as to
the Florida naval militia during my
administration. This great and grow-
ing state spreads over a territory greater
than that of any other state east of the
J1ississippi river.
For more than 250 years the territory
was in the grasp of a power far away;
Sa monarch despotic and cruel, hence
We find that the early history of Florida
*as not one of rapid and encouraging.
development.
SIn 1822 congress established a territo-
rial government, which continued until
1b45 when Florida was admitted to
statehood. The census of 1840 shows a
population of 54.467; that of 1870 a pop-
ulation of 189,995, at which time our be-
loved state was just emerging from the
effects of a terrible war, without funds,
and its people reduced to poverty, which
condition was aggravated and mads
more desperate by the reckless bonding
of the state, and the extravagant and
wasteful expenditures of the people's
money extorted by Republican adminis-
trations, which condition was ended in-
1878 by the election of a Democratic
chief magistrate of Florida. Since then
our state has grown and prospered in
population and in wealth.
During the past three decades our
population has increased from 189,995 to
-:68,542; our assessed valuations have in-
creased from less that $.0000,000 to up-
ward of $85,000,000 on the tax books, be-
sides more than $200,000,000 not on the
tax books, with exports from fields, gar-
dens, mines, manufactures, forests,
lakes and rivers, amounting to millions
of dollars annually.
Railroads and Ports.
Three thousand miles of railroads and
great ports have been constructed as
RlnnnmlntA of our progress.
Our edvcfwio11 facilties have grown
during this period toaocornaoelwte the
enrolled seholarsip of more tha" 100,-
000 students. Churches have been erec-
ted in every city and hamlet as monu-
ments of the people's generosity and of
the high civilization attained.
Honor to Predecessors.
Much credit is due to my immediate
Sredewessors, and it is proper that I
should express the well unigh universal
sentiment of appreciation of their faith-
ul performanceof duty. We congratu-
late ourselves that Providence has given
0is wise, able and judicious governors,
*nd to Governor Bloxham I express the
(incere hope' that after his retirement
from the office of chief executive of
florida that he may live long to enjoy
the delightful memories that cluster
thickly around his public life.
The New Century.
With assumption of high responsibili-
ties on this occasion it might become me
better to be silent. Yet, standing as
we do on the threshold of a new cen-
tury, closing the door of the old with
the historian reveling in its wonderful
achievements; opening the door of the
new the imagination can see a century
whose possibilities are as yet unparal-
leled in history, and we appreciate and
realize that there are "other steps to
climb;" we see the steps leading up-
ward, but the topmost one is far beyond
our view. We can but look up and
press onward, striving as we go to do
our whole duty to God and to our fel-

About 12 M.--returned by east
front of the Capitol, and the troops
presented arms as the carriages con-
taning (Gov. Bloxham and Gov.-elect
Jennings passed through the grounds
to the portico of the Capitol, accom-
palied by Mrs. Bloxham and Mrs.
Jennings, and followed by the Cab-
let, the Justices of the Supreme
Court and the ladies of their fami-
Se.- Here were already assembled


tung decisions amounting to practina
denial of justice." The supreme curt
was established by the constitution of 4
1845, no change was made in the n-.
stitution of 1868 nor in the constitutiGon.
of 1885. The supreme court, as first

constituted, is the supreme court of to-
day. From 1345 to 1891, 40years, the
court issued 21; volumes of reports, as
which time, 1891, the court was six and
one-half years behind with its work.
During the past nine years the court
has issued 16 volumes of reports con-
taining more matter than the former 26
volumes; and yet the court is five years
behind with its work.
This should convince all reasonable
men that it is impossible for three judges
to perform the work devolving upon
this court under the existing circum-
stances and our complex system of.
practice. A comparison of the condi-
tions, the wealth and population of
Florida, when this court was created
with that of the population, development
and wealth of today, should appeal to
the lawmaking power for its best
thought and action which I begto urge,
to.the end that a temporary commission
may be created to adjudicate apd dispose
of certain cases to be allotted by the jus-
tices, to enable the court to dispose of
accumulated cases and clear the docket-
speedily, and to provide by constitu-
tional amendment for the establishment
of another division of the supreme
court.
Circuit Courts.
The circuit judges are likewise unable
to perform the duties devolving upon
their courts in several of the circuits.
These courts were established by the
constitution of 1868, and although our
population has more than quadrupled
and the business of these courts more
than six times as great, we have the
same number of judges that we had in
1858.
The criminal dockets in several of the
counties require all the term period,
thus depriving litigants on the civil
side of their rights and leaving them
without a remedy. These conditions
demand correction, and must appeal to
every patriotic legislator to provide a
constitutional amendment creating ad-
ditional circuits or judgships. There is
a great necessity for a provision for ad-
ditional circuits and circuit judges.
State's Attorneys.
From the great increase in homicides
and other cases of felony appearing on
the dockets of our circuit courts, the
time of the state's attorney being re-
quired in court work, it appears impos-
sible for a state's attorney to acquaint
himself with all the cases in a circuit
and prepare for the prosecution as the
interest of the state demands. The
lawmakers having the power to bring
about a correction of these evils I sug.
gest that the subject be investigated by
them, with a view of providing by con-
stitutional amendment for a state's at-'
torney for each senatorial district, to be;
paid out of fees to be prescribed by law.
Taxation.
section 1, article 9, of the constitu-
tion reads: "The legia ar a pro-
vide'i,for a unifmt ul Oiatte of."
taxation, and shall present such regula-
tions as shall secure a just valuation of
all property, both real and personal,"
exempted property excepted. This is a
subject that has perplexed the most ex.
verienced minds from time immemorial,
and will continue to do so while the
subject lasts. It has been ascertained
that under our present system of valua-
tions, property in some counties is as-
sessed at 90 per cent. of its value while
in others it is a< low as 20 per cent. In
1871 the he-ri-larure created a sta'e board
of equalivirion to (iltrerminie the relative
value ou ri:t' ai est-;r. in thle ditlerent
couities.. 'hi-s iourd 111 ,i| its report to

Since LhUA rnile. In-a:lyi ;:'i years there
has been te powe)rir tiou to deTrminile is Irelartive value of
the real estate in the different counties
resulting in a policy of local depression
of valuations, whiic has placed our
state in the awkward position of main-
taining an uneven burden of govern-
ment, and a higher rate of taxation than
would have otherwise been required.
That a remedy should be provided to re-
lieve those who are bearing an unjust
burden, and to provide for a uniform
and equal rate of taxation, must be ap-
parent.
Board of Health.
I heartily approve the state board
f health as constituted, and be-


low man.
As some expression of purpose is ex-
pected of me on this occasion I venture
to express some views based on observa-
tion of a general character, with the
hope that I shall be enabled to more
Specifically set forth my views in mes-
sages to the legislature. In contem-
plating the exercise of duties, it is
proper you should understand what I
aeem essential principles of our state
government, and, consequently, those
which ought 'to shape its wiministra-
tion for you; retain the sovereign power
and guard your rights with a jealous
care. Our declaration of rights, our
fundamernt9 law declare that "all men
are equp before the law, and have pcer-
sain inp** *ble rights, among which are
those of enjoying and defending life
and liberty,, acquiring, possessing and
end protecting property, and pursuing
happiness and obtaining safety; that all
political power is inherent in the people;
that the right of trial by jury shall be
secured to all and remain inviolate for-
ever; that all courts in this state shall
be open, so that every person for any
injury done him in, his lands, goods,
person or reputation, shall have reme-
dy by due course of law, and right and
justice shall be administered without
saae, denial or delay." These I deem
essential principles of our state govern-
ment.
Judiciary.


lieve that our only safety lies in our re-
taining supreme sanitary control Since
the enactment of the law establishing
our state board of health, the employ-
ment of a competent state health officer
ten years ago and the enforcement of
the law our state has been immune from
yellow fever epidemics, save during the
year 1899, when our state control was
practically suspended by federal author-
ity. Our state being immune during
the entire period of the operation of our
state control, enabling our port cities to
increase in population and in wealth
during this period over 50 per cent and
our state to increase, under adverse cir-
cumstances, more in population in the
past decade than any other state in the
union convinces me that we should sus-
tain our health laws.
Education.


I am in favor of the most liberal sup-
port and development of the public
school system, and contemplate with
pride the record made in our state, and
hope to see an advance commensurate
with the necessities before us, extend-
ing, if necessary, to the establishment
of night schools in such places as are
found advisable to meet a growing de-
mand, and the adoption of the free
school book system in each of the coun-
ties of the state.
These and other important matters

the fountain of justice, the protector of
liberty and dispenser of right, continue
his blessing upon this state and give it
all possible success consistent with the
ends of his providence.
The State seal was then delivered
to Gov. Jennings by ex-Gov. Blox-
ham, who with his ascus'omed grace,
congratulated all Floridians on th-ir
new Governer. lie said:
Governor Jennings:
Called by the people to the exalted
position of Chief Magistrate of Flor-
ida, and having taken the oath pre-
scribed by the. Constitution, it be-
comes my duty, as it is my pleasure,
to place in your custody the Great
Seal of Sate.
In doing so permit me to congrat-
ulate you upon entering upon the
discharge of your official duties, at a
period of great and growing pros-
perity, and to assure you that you
will have the best hopes of all Flor-
idians that the administration over
which you are to preside will add to
the glory of Florida and witness a
strifeless and increasing progress to
the end, that peace and prosperity
will continue to hover, as a benign
benediction, over our fair State.
Accept, sir, the Great Seal, the
emblem of the State's sovereignty
and highest Executive authority.
And now, fellow-citizens, all hail
to Governor Jennings, and Godspeed
to the new Administration.


This closed the official ceremony
of inauguration.
Ex-Gov. Bloxham then conducted
Gov. Jennings to the Executive Of-
fice, where all callers were informally
received by Gov. and Mrs. Jennings.
After the inauguration the troops
were invited to partake of a barbe-
cue, served on Wayne Square,where
over 600 were served with a variety
of barbecued meats, coffee, sand-


wiches, pickles, etc.

especially, it is believed a fes-
tering mass of corruption exist in
Cuba, and if the administration de-
liberately withholds official reports it
is a matter for the whole country to
know. The determination of the
President to cut off all information is
shown by the fact that Mr. Lawshe,
whose report the Secretary declines
to make public, has been suddenly
hurried to the Philippines to till a
$6,900 position as auditor. If lie had
remained in Washington, he could
have been summoned before the Con-
gressional Committee to describe the

While th ball was going on t ose

half-past 16 until 2 a. m., and ere
much appreciated by the dancers and
the public generally.
The ball continued until the early

and was greatly enjoyed by all the
participant. It was one of the ost
magnificent balls Tallehassee has
ever witnessed, and will not sooi be
forgotten.

came to the surface three times dur-
ing the three days that Congress wa.s
in session this week, and held sway
in both Senate and House. This was
the more striking because the pre-
holiday sessions were marked by the
entire absence of anything of the
kind. The game was inaugurated in
the House promptly on reassembling
by A resolution called up by Repre-
sentative Olmsted, of Pennsylvania.
providing for an investigation by tht-
Census Committee as to whether the.
franchise was restricted in the South.
in such a way as to call for a reduc-
tion of representation under the 14tl::
amendment to the Constitution. 'Thc*
resolution stirred the Southern mem-
bers, who have been aroused before
by the steps taken by Representative
Crumpacker, of Indiana, in the amc
direction. It directs the Census
Committee to ascertain where the
vote has been restricted and to make
full and complete reports to the
Ilouse. This involved to a certain
extent the consideration of the ap-
portionment bill.' The whole sub-
ject was gone over thoroughly in the
ninth census. The committee could.
of course, bring the information
down to date, and perhaps it would
be a good thing to have that done.
It would satisfy the public and show
something< of what the situation

cause of this .State law. Mastachu-
setts has an educational (qualificatiol
and Rhode Island has a poll tax.
Other States of the North also have
suffrage qualifications which would
bring them within the scope of the
ccistitutional amendment. Even the
inmates. of the insane asylums and.
similar institutions would have to be-
counted in reckoning the restriction,
of suffrage. So there is likely to bhe
strong opposition t anything definite
being accomplished under Mr. 1hni-
sted's resolution, which was tinaall
referred to the committeee on C(en-
sus.
In the Senate politics was played
by no less a personage than tht
President himself, who sent to tha.
lodly a refusal by the Secretary o
War to transmit the report of A. I
Lawshe, who investigated the Ceuba:
postoffice frauds, demanded from the
Secretary of War by resolution of
the Senate. The P'resident declared
curttly that he did not deem it corn
patible with the public interest t(-
make public the report. Tihe truth
of the matter .seems to be that the
report shows gross negligence and
possibly corruption on tLie part of
high officers of the Government-
whom the President and Secretary
of War hope to be:able to shield.
The refusal is a direct defiance of the
Senate's right to inquire into Govern
ment matters. To say that an exec-

&ate of Old Overftots.
"Where do the old overcoats go?"' is a
,query that is a natural successor to the
old riddle, "Where do the flies go In
winter?" The old overcoats seem
-somehow to fade away, no one knows
just how. The overcoat starts its ca-
:reer on the back of its owper, who paid
:$4U for it. It keeps hin -warm and
shelters him from cold winds and from
storms until it commences to get fray-
ed at the edges and the pockets are
torn down the sides. Then the owner
uses the coat for rainy diys only. and
no more does he take it :o call on his
fiancee or to recline on 1_he back of a
chair whfle,he is reading at the club.
He keeps it another sun mer. and the
moths get into it. and when he takes it
out In the fall it has hales here and
there. So the owner gives it to the
janitor, if the janitor is not a cold,
"haughty man, and the ja itor wears it
awhile until his wife gikes it to the
tramp who wheeled out he three'" bar-
rels of ashes. The tramp wears it until
the old coat conimenees to fall apart.
Then he gives it to another tramp. and
it Calls apart still more. And then
some day the coat has entirely disap-
peared. No one knows $ow or when.
The coat just simply faded away.
That's all anybody knows about it.-
Chicago Tribune.

Trylig to Keei Out.
A sick man who was reallyy near to
death could not resist the !temptation to
have a little fun with his spiritual ad-
viser. He had a lingering malady, but
his days were certainly i itniered hv a


few weeks at the most.


lie *had1 not


.s"t *nown ,as a man of strong rell-
gious convictions. and yet there was
little if anything which could be said
agalnsthim. It was one of those deli-
cate cases in which it is hard for the
minister to do anything. Some one
suggested to Rev. Paul Weyand. then
.stationed at Morningside. toiat he make
a call upon the patient -
Going to the house. he found the man
propp Ml up ifi bed to relieve a smother-
Ing sensation. The sick man could
scarcely talk above a whisper, and Rev.
Mr. Weyand began to make subtle in-
quiries about his spiritual welfare.
The invalid's answers were all non-
committal and evasive, and finally in
despair the pastor asked;
"Do you really want to go to heaven.
Mr. Blank?"
"Do I want to go to heaven?" repeat-
ed thle dying man in a hoarse whisper.
"Why. that's the place I've been fight-
ing so hard to keep out of for the last
two years!"-Pittsburg News.

Met on a Screen.
One of the happiest uses served by
that wonderful and many named in-

Music Hall.
A party of gentlemen were watch-

South African scenes they recognized
an officer friend. The wife of the
officer, on being told of this. wrote to
the manager and asked that this pic-
ture might be put on on a certain
evening when she would purposely
journey from Glasgow.

What Prightened HIne
While crossing the isthmus of Pana-
ma by rail some years ago the conduct-
or obligingly stopiwil the train for Mr.
Campion to gather some beautiful
crimson flowers by the roadside. It
was midday aiil intensely hot. In his
"On the Frontier" Mir. (ampion tells a
peculiar story of this flower picking
experience.
I refused offers of assistance and
went alone to pluck the flowers. After
gathering a handful I noticed a large
bed of plants knee high and of delicate
form and a beautiful green shade. I
walked to them, broke off a fine spray
and placed it with the flowers.
To my amazement I saw that I had
gathered a withered, shriveled brown-
Ish weed. I threw it away. carefully
selected a large, bright green plant
and plucked it. Again I hiad in my
hand a bunch of withered leaves.
It flashed through my mind that a
sudden attack of Panama fever, which
was very prevalent and much talked
of, had struck me delirious.
I went "off my head" from fright. In
a panic I threw the flowers down and
was alout to run to the train. I looked
around. Nothing s.eemned strange. I
felt my pulse. All right. I was in a
perspiration. but the heat would have
made a lizard perspire.
Then I noticed that the plants where
I stood seemed shrunken and wilted.
Carefully I put my finger on a fresh
branch. Instantly the leaves shrank
and began to change color. I had been
frightened by sensitive plants.

A Bit of Red Tape.
The absurdities of officialisin have
perhaps never been better illustrated
than by the incident in the career of
Lord Shaftesbury which the author of
"Collections anid I collect ions" relates:
One winter evening in 18;7 he was
sitting in his library in Grosvenor
square. when the s-ervant told him

ing antiseptic application for any pur

TALLAIiASsEE, Jan. 3, 1901.
COUNTY S',oH L )FFiKri:S Ei.ET:
I)DEAR Sm s-ThijA medium is employed to acquaint you with the following opinion of the Attorney- Gen-
eral, and, while doing so, to call attention to other matters.
Whether the retiring or the incoming County Hoard of Public Instruction will be the lawiul one for the
transaction of business ,and entitled to compensation for Tuesday after the first 11 mday in January after a eral election, being askeil by many, the question was submitted to the Attorney-G'eneral for his opinion, wThich
find below, as follows: "
HON. W. N. SH.ATS. January :, 1901.
ST.\TE SI'Ur. P1 INSTv Ir'T"'N.
S TALLAIIASSEE, FLA.
I)EAR Si--I h;tave your inquirv of the :,lst ult. In my opinion the te-rnm of the niml)t'r-s of the Couinty Boar'ls of
Public Is-truction lately elected an I commissioned begin on next Tuesday. January r.h. 1901. The term : of their pre.deces-
sorsin :'whose sterns of office shall begin the first Tuesday after the first Monday."etc. The termn ine-lu les th- whole of Tuesday.
B 4h boards" can not be in office at the same time. The members of the lately elected Boards of Public Instruction have
already ,lualihfil for their terms of office. Very truly.
WV. B. LAMAR, Attorney-General.
In view of tli opinion, it appears that where there is unfinished business requiring a meeting of the old
IHoard it should be called upon some previous day.
In this same communication -permit me to further add:
1st. That a copy of the last compilation of the School Laws is mailed each of you this date, and it is
urged that you speedily acquaint yourself with its provisions. Your attention is now directed to Section 35,
prescribing a primary duty. To aid you in the uniform and proper discharge of this, two blanks have been
mailed to each incoming County Superintendent.
2d. To fix the compensation for the services of the County Superintendent of Public Instruction will be
another one of your early duties. It is hoped that you will pardon the suggestion that you make his salary as
liberal as the amount of service required to properly supervise the schools of your county, as the size and state
of your county school finances, and as the individual interest in the work and known ability of the officer, will
justify. Properly pay him, then insist that he devote his time and capabilities to the zealous and faithful
discharge of the varied and responsible duties of the office. His services, properly rendered, are invaluable.
No money expended for public education yields such large returns. The value of your schools and of your
own services largely depends upon his faithfulness, zeal and painstaking in executing your demands. His
greatest worth results from his suggestions to the Board, if he be given the opportunity and is inclined .to inform
himself on school questions generally and the real educational status of his own county. That he may give
his best services and vital interest, his very oul, to the office-otherwise, he is of little value-you must
pay him enough to enable him to devote his undivided attention to the work. The final outcome of pub-
lio& education is not so dependent upon any other agency as upon the constant and undivided attention of a
,capable an.d enthusiastic County Superintendent. p
The County Board will be largely defeated in spite of itself, and the children and parents are to be pitied
where an improper County Superintendent has been elected, or one that will make the duties of the office of sec-
ondary consideration. Hence, you can render no greater service to the educational interests of your county than
-by suiting the salary to the requirements of the office and then insisting that every dollar! of the same be well-
earned. ,
3d. It is sincerely hoped that every one elected to assume a school office at the beginning of this new
century is thoroughly imbued with the spirit necessary to keep step with the rapid progress of the age. I covet
the privilege of addressng you as a body and regret that the small compensation allowed tou renders -it impos-
sible and unreasonable to expect that you should assemble for conference. I contemplate, however, nflicting
up6n you in the immediate future a printed address of such length as would not be justifiable in a circular of this i
nature. It proposed in this address to outline the changes proposed, with the reasons therefore, for bettering I

see him. The man wa 'shown in and
proved to be a laborer from Clerken-
, well and one of the Innumerable re-
cipients of the old .earl's charity.
He said. "My lord, you have been
very good to me, and I have epme to
tell you what I have heard." It ap-
peared that at the public house: which
he frequented he had overheard some
Irishmen of desperate character plot-
ting to blow up Clerkenwell prison.
He gave Lord Shaftesbury the in-
formation, to be used as he thought
best, but made it a condition that his
name should not be divulged. If it
were, his life would not be worth an
hour's purchase.
Lord Shaftesbury pledged himself to
secrecy, ordered his carriage and drov.
Instantly to Whitehall. The authori-
ties there refused, on grounds of otffi-
cial practice, to entertain the informa-
tion without the name and address of
the Informant. These, of course. could
not be given. The warning wis re-
jected, 'and the jail was blown up.-

As her eyes ran over those six words
she blushed.
"Hernmann." she said. "you have be-
trayed mae."
"And when will your higlness order
me out to Ie. shot?" ask'd lie, smiling.
"At sunrise. Hut I shall blindfold
the soldiers and take the charges from
their guns. I forgive you."
"Now. IIermiaiinn," said 1. "fill mie up
.i stein." I held it high above imy head.
"A health! Long live the king! Long
live her serene highness the Prin-
c ss" -
"Elizabeth." said Gretchen gently.
"I fear slive has lost something which is
never to ble found again."
I drained the stein, and as I set it
down I thought, Phyllis is so far away
and Gretchen is so near!
"Let us go into the garden." said 1.
For a long time we wandered here
and there, saying nothing. I was
thinking that I Liad found a castle at
last which neither tides nor winds nor
sudden awakenings could tumble
down.
"Gretchen. you must never take up
the sword again."
"Only in my lord's defense," From
the movement of her arm. which clung
to mine. I knew that she was laughing.
The moon had risen, the round and
mellow moon of summer. The silver
mists -of night wavered and sailed
through the aisles of the forests, and
from the river came the cool, fresh
perfume of lthe river rush.
"And so you really love me?" I
asked.
"I do."
"Why do you love me?"
"PBeo.ase," said Gretchen.
THE END.
A Sure Thing for You.
A transaction in which you cannot
lose is a sure thing. Biliousness, sick-

before. The visit passed off pleasant-
ly, but at Its close the host gallantly,
but none the less to her surprise and
chagrin, kissed the lady as he said
goodby. The sculptor was an elderly
man. but nevertheless it was a liberty,
and she was not astonished to hear her
husband ejaculate: 'Why. 1 never heard
of such check! I've a good mind to go
back and tell him what I think of him.!
'After two or three remarks of a
similar tenor. In which the note of an-
ger was rising, the wife decided to
pour oil on the troubled waters and so,
laying her hand on his arm. said: 'I
know. dear. he shouldn't have kissed
me. but what does it really matter?
What does a kiss count In a woman of
my years? Hie is a very old man. and
probably he was following the fashion
of the country.'
"Her husband turned anit astonished
face. 'Of course I don't mind his kiss-
ing you.' he raged. 'but.' and his voice
rose. "it's his having kissed me that has
hurt my feelingsg'
"The sculptor had followed the Ital-

husband."--New York Tribune.

Sot the Baos Viol Man's Fault.
A capital story relating to good old.
times is still told in the Fen district
of the eastern counties. As is well
known by many and even now remem-
bered by some.. a bass viol was often
procured to help the choirs in parish
churches.
One lovely Sunday morning in the
summer while the parson was droning
out his drowsy discourse and had about
reached the middle a big bull managed
to escape from hi/ pasture and march-
ed majestically down the road. bellow-
ing defiantly as he came. The parson,
who was somewhat deaf. heard the
bull bellow, but. mistaking the origin
of the sound, gravely glanced toward
the singers' seats and said in tones of
.reproof:
"I would thank the musicians not to
tune up during service time. It annoys
me very much."
As may well be imagined, the choir
looked greatly surprised, but said noth-
ing.
Very soon, however, the belligerent
bull gave another bellow, and then the
aggrieved parson became desperately
iindignant.-Cassell's Magazine.

Couldn't See the Humor.
"I can't for tihe life oft me see," re-
marked' an iunglishinan during the
course of conversation with Nat Good-
win once, "what people mean by Amer-
ican humor. To me all humor is alike,
whether it be of American or English
origin. Perhaps you can explain to me
just what distinguishes American hu-
mor from any other sort?"
"Well," replied Mr. Goodwin, "I think
the American type of humor is rather
more subtle. it doesn't always fully
impress itself upon you at once. The
more you thinly, about it the funnier it
seems. I can perhaps best illustrate
my meaning with a little story.
"A-man was walking along the street
one day when hle passed another man
who was carrying a letter in his hand.
"'Pardon me.' said the man with the
letter. 'Do you know where the post-

'Yes,' said the other man and pass-
ed on. On second thouiirht he decided
that lie had been rude and went back
to where the man with the letter was
still standing.
"'Do you wish to know where the
posto!fice is?' lie asked.
'No.' said the other man."

Land of Flowers.


JOnO C. Tia. editor and Proprietor.
In our Washington correspondence
today will be found two statements
that may surprise some of those who
have voted for Bryan and hoped for
McKinley's election; though they
should not be surprised. That the
Republicans should attempt now to
perpetuate themselves in power -is
no surprise to the TALLAIIASSEAS.
Such a sweeping condemnation of
Bryan's honesty and endorsement of
McKinley's usurpation of power as
was given by the American people
in November, is all that is necessary


to make such men as Hanna (who
controls the President) arrogate to
themselves the -right to carry the
policy of usurpation to its logical
conclusion in all branches of the
National government. It is no won-
der then that we find them attempt-
ing to reduce congressionalrep resen-
tation in the South to perpetuate
themselves, in power, and the Pres-
ident refusing to comply with the
SSenate's request for information rel-
ative to the rottenness of the admin-
istration of public affairs in "our for-
eign possessions." It would be more
truthful and more consistent, though,
'for the President to give, as a reason
for such refusal, that it is "incompat-
iable with" the perpetuation of the
'Republican party in office.

1Bloxham Receives a Cup.
Just before the inaugural ceremo-
mies Tuesday, the administrative offi-
cers at the Capitol quietly got
together and, going into the execu-
tive office, Gov. Bloxham was sent
for, and on his arrival, State Treas-
urer, Jas. B. Whitfield read the fol-
lowing resolutions:
"Resolved, That we do hereby
acknowledge, with gratitude, our
obligations to the Hon. William D.
Bloxbam for his unfailing courtesy
and generous kidness to each and
all of us during a erm of most pleas.
ant officiation. re shall ever be
mindful of the g eat assistance he
has rendered us min our official duties
by his wise and kibdly counsel. In
common with all the people of Flor-
ida, we wish for him every honor his
high character and distinguished ser-
vices so justly entitle him to receive
at the hands of "the State among
whom his entire life has been spent
in devotion and usefulness to their
best interests."
This resolution was neatly inscribed
and signed by all the members of the
Cabinet. Then AttOrney.General W.
B. Lamar, in a few 4ell chosen words,
presented to Gov rnor Bloxham a
silver goblet as a ;ark of the affec-
tion and esteem in which he was
held by them. general Lamar's
.address was as follows:
-Governor. BloxAam, the official
relations between you and the ad-
:jinistrative officers of the Executive
Department will sonii cease by lim-
itation of law.
"BHt by the lhig est of laws, per-
sonal regard for nu, our grateful
appreciation of all you have done
for each of is, our liersonal relations
will en ure forever.' We do not say
goold-hye, or even an revoir. We
will meet from day to day in this
,-ity of your residence where you
have long been lov, d, and continue
,hose friendly relations. We havt
had the pleasure at] times of a C('abi.
net meeting at your home. We dc
not frget its hospitality, dispense]

successful and brilliant career she to(
has ever been in the hearts of tli<
people of Florida.
"Today we witness a rising sun
-without the spectacle of a setting
one. Your two administrations wenr
successful and redounded greatly t
the benefit of the people of Florida
Your career, as Governor, is full
orbed and resplendent.
"Your administrative officers pre
sent to you this goblet in token o
their great regard and esteem fo


yOL. .
Governor Bloxham was taken
completely by surprise and was a
much effected by this new evidence
of the sincere regard with which h
*is held by his old Cabinet that h
broke down completely, and it wa
with great difficulty that he was abI
to say a few faltering words in rep!
to General Lamar. He said, "Ge

"William N. Sheats, Superinten-
dent of Public Instruction.
"Lucius B. Wombwell, Commis-
sioner of Agriculture."
The pedestal of the goblet bears
this inscription:
"Tallahassee, Fla., January 8, A.
D. 1901."
The whole made a scene that will
go down as one of the most feeling
and pathetic incidents of the kind in
Florida history.
The Retiring Governor.
Wm. D. Bloxham was born in
Leon county, Fla., July 9, 18'35.
His father was one of the pioneer
settlers of this county, having moved
from Virginia in 1825. Young
Bloxham was placed at school in his
native county, but at the age of thir-
teen was sent to a preparatory school
in Virginia, and afterwards to Wil-
liam and Mary College, where he
graduated in June, 1855. He grad-
uated in the law course at that insti-
tution, but his health failing him hb
never practiced. IHis profession was
given up for the more active life of a
planter. JIis fondness for politics
led him early into political life, and,
notwithstanding his youth, he took
an-active part in his county's politics
in the election of Buchanan. In
1861 he was elected to the Legisla-
ture of Florida without opposition.
He ( pposed the reconstruction meas-
ures of Congress after tde war, and
was a Presidential Elector in 1868.
In 1870 he was unanimously nomi-
nated by the Democratic Convention
to fill a vacancy then existing in the
position of Lieutenant-Governor of
the State. His election to that
position, after a spirited canvas,
was the first Democratic triumph in
Florida after the war. In 1872 he
was nominated for Governor with-
out opposition--General Robert Bul-
lock of Marion county being tlhe
candidate for Lieutenant-Governor,
and Hon. C. W. Jones, U.S. Senator,
and llon. S. L. Niblack, being Con-
gressional nominees. Owing to a
severe storm that swept' the penin-
sular part of the State on the day
of election, a small vote was polled,
and the ticket was defeated. In 1876
Mr. Bloxham served as a member of
the State Democratic Executive Com-
mittee, and took an active part in
that campaign, which resulted in the
election of lion. Geo. F. DI)rew, as
Governor. Mr. Bloxham was ap-
pointed Secretary of State under the
new administration, which position
he held until the Summer of 1880,
when lie was again nominated for
Governor. Resigningthe position of
Secretary of State, hlie made a most
active canvass of the State, and was
elected by over five thousand majpr-
ity. iHe was inaugurated in the
presence of both houses of the
Legislature on January 4, 1881.
Sand served as G(overnor until Janu-
ary 6i, 1885, when his successor, Gov-
Sernor E. A. Perry, was inducted into
office. His administration was a
' great success, and under it Florida
developed more rapidly and satisfac-
torily than in any. period of her his.
tory. The convention that nomina-
' ted his successor pronounced it the
| "Most brilliant in the history of the
SCommonwealth."
S- In May, 1885, President Cleve.
Island appointed Governor Bloxhaim
Minister to Bolivia, but he declined
, the position, and in November, the
f same year. accepted the appointment
of United States Surveyor-General


" for the District of Florida, which of.
n lice he held for four yeais.
0 Subsequently Comptroller Barnes
o resigned to accept the Circuit Judge.
a ship in the First District, and ex.
e Governor Bloxham was appointed by
s Governor Fleming to succeed him

In Memoriam.
On December 23d, as the closing.
hours of a beautiful Sabbath day*
were changing into scenes of night-
fall and the .canoplied heavens were
resplendent witli the lovliness of a
winter night, there passed with these
scenes into the realms of eternity the
spirit of Isaac J. Wilson, after a brief
illness from pneumonia.
Until within an hour of Mr. Wil-
son's death it was not realized that
his condition was so critical, as he
had talked with friends who had
called at his bedside during the after-
noon, and seemed to be improving.
At 6 o'clock, however, he grew worse
and with everything that was done
for him their seemed to be no hope,
and at half past 6 o'clock he passed
away as peacefully and quietly as one
going off into a gentle sleep.
Mr. Wilson was well and favor-
ably known by a large circle of
friends here and in Wedgefield, S.
C., his former home. lie leaves a
widow and six children, all of whom
have the sympathy of the entire com-
munity in their sad affliction. liHe
was a man of excellent char-
acter, and commanded the re-
spect and esteem of all who
knew him. A most devoted
husband, father and friend. Integ-
rity and uprightness in all the affairs
of life had placed him in the confi-
dence of his associates. Quiet, un-
ostentatious, generous and kind to
all. lie bore these characteristics
with a genuineness that impressed
their virtues upon the hearts of all
that knew the man. In all, lie pos-
sessed those rich qualities which ever
characterize a true man.
Truly it is sad, that one endowed
with such attributes, should in the
midst of life's activities, be taken
away; but it is a decree from Heaven
and though it may perhaps seem to
us unjust, it is born of infinite wis-
dom, and we can but submit to. His
will.
May this exemplary life of this
good husband and father, be tabu-
lated upon the memories of the
young lives that now remain within
the widowed mother's care; and may
God alike in His bounteous mercy,
administer to, and relieve their sor-
rowing hearts. May Ile keep them
ever in mindful touch of thief untar-
nished history that proved for their
father a pathway to that brighter
and better world beyond the skies,
and while loving hands keep fresh
the flowers that mark the spot where
this loved one now sleeps, let the
heart's most cherished thought be,
that his niemoiry still lives.

Resolutions.
P'as.ed iby the Tallahassee Orange
Blossoms, Jan. 6, 1901.
The earth has grown old with its burden
of care.
But at Christnmas it always is young;
The heart of the jewel burns lustrous
and fair,
ALd its soul full of music breaks forth
on the air
When the ziongs of the angels is sung.
On the "-.d- of December, 1900,
God called another one of our mem-
bers, Mabel Woodward, to a higher
life to join her voice with that of the
Christ child who tells out with de-
light "that mankind are the children
of God." We humbly bow to His
will in all things. Be it
Resolved (1) That we strive to be
prepared when God calls us, to meet
her on the "other shore".
(2d.) That we extend to her be-
reaved loved ones our loving sympa-
thy.
She will ever be sadly missed from
the home circle where she was ever
helpful and much beloved. She will
be missed by her school-mates, and
a large circle of friends but she has
gone to sing with the angel bands
where are joys forever more,

needy and suffering. The proprietors of

"Jack, you are hiding something from
me. Are you going to leave the city to
search for her?"
"No." said I. "The truth is," with a
miserable attempt to smile, "I have
an engagement tomorrow morning, and
it is impossible to tell how long it will
last. Good night."
Fate played loose with me that night.
As I was turning down the corridor I
ran into tlie prince. He was accompa-
nied by Von Walden and an attache
whom I knew.
"Good evening, said the prince.
"Do you not prefer the French opera,
after all?"
"All good music is the same to me,"
I answered, calmly returning his amus-
ed look with a contemptuous one.
"Wagner, Verdi, Gounod or Bizet, it
matters not."
"Till we meet again," he said as I
continued on. "Shall I add pleasant
dreams ?"
"I ;nm obliged to you," 1 answered
over my shoulder, "but I never have
them. I sleep too soundly."
"Cousin," said 1 later, "what was
that opera ?"
"1 forgot to bring along a pro-
gramme," said Pembroke.

CHAPTER XXIII.
When Pembroke and I arrived at the
Strassburg inn, on the north road, nei-
ther the prince nor Von Walden was
in evidence. I stepped from our car-
riage and gazed interestedly around
me. The scene was a picturesque one.
The sun, but half risen, was of a rusty
brass, and all east was mottled with


purple and salmon hues. The clearing,
a quarter of a mile away, where the
prince and I were to settle our dispute,
was hidden under a fine white snow,
and the barren trees which encircled it
stood out blackly. Pembroke looked -at
his watch.
'lThey ought to be along soon. It's
five after G. How do you feel?" re-
garding me seriously. -
"As nerveless as a rod of steel," I
ansve-red. "Let us go in and order a
small breakfast I'm a bit cold/'
"Better let it go at a cup of coffee,"
lihe stiggested.
"It will be more consistent, that is
true," I said. "Coffee and pistols fo'
' two."
"I'm --lad to see that you are
bright," said Pembroke. "Hold out
your hanl."


was without expression. As for the
prince, he still wore that banterig
smile. He was confident of the end.
He knew that I was a. tyro, whereas
he had faced death many times. I
sighed. I knew that I should not aim
to take his life. I was absolutely with-
out emotion There was not the slight-
est'tremble in my hand as I accepted
the pistol'. There is nothing like set
purpose to still the tremors of a man's.-
nerves. I thought of Ilillars. and for
a moment my arm stiffened; then I re-
called Gretchen's last letter. I fell to
wondering where the bullet would hit
me. I prayed that his aim might be
sure.
"Many persons think that I am a
man without compassion." said the
prince, as we were about to step to our
places. "I have an abundance of it.
You have everything to lose. and I
have nothing to gain. If it is your de-
sire, I shall be happy to explain that
you wish to withdraw. But say the
word."
lie knew what my reply would be.
"Withdraw." said I. "and have yon
laugh at me and tell your friends that
I acted the poltroon? Really, you do
me injustice."
"And do you hate me so very mueh?"
mockery in his eyes.
"Not now. I did hate you. but hatred
is a thing we should not waste any
more than love. I have taken the bird
and the nest from your hands; that is
more than enough. You are merely anl
object for scorn and contempt and in-
difference now. No; I have no wish to
withdraw."
"You read between the lines," lie

I .tood ('-cing the prince. I lifted the
pistol and tired. Had the prince been
ten feet to the right he must have been
h1t. I threw the smoking pistol aside,
let my arms fall and waited. I could
see that Pembroke was biting his lip to
hide his anxiety and disappointment.
Slowly the prince leveled the weapon
at my breast. Naturally I shut my
eyes. Perhaps there was a prayer on
my lips. God, how long that wait seem-
ed to me! It became so tedious timt 1

of the prince appeared to have frozen

it at my feet. The rest of us looked on
dumfounded.

"They would be dangerous as a nation
were it not for their love of money."
Then to me. "Go tell your princess that
I have given your life to you."
"The. devil take you!" I cried. The
strain had been terrible.
"All in good time." retorted the
prince, getting into his coat and furs.
"Yesterday morning I had ever inten-
tion of killing you. This morning it

What We Eat
Is intended to nourish and sustain us,
but it must be digested and assimilated
before it can do this. In other words,
the nourishment contained in food must
be separated by the digestive organs
from the waste materials and must be
carried by the blood to all parts of the
body. We believe the reason for the
great benefit which so many people de-
rive from Hood's Sarsaparilla lies in the
fact that this medicine gives good diges-
tion and makes pure, rich blood. It re-
stores the functions of those organs
which convert food into nourishment
that gives strength to nerves and mus-
cles. It also cures dyspepsia, scrofula,
salt rheum, boils, sores, pimples and
eruptions, catarrh, rheumatiem and all
diseases that have their origin In impure
blood.


was frrthest from my thoughts, though
I did hope to see you waver. You are
a man of courage. So was your friend.
It is to be regretted that we were on
different sides. Devil take the'vomen!
Good morning!"
4fter the count had gathered up the
pistols the two walked toward the inn.
Pembroke and I followed them at a
distance.
"I wonder if he had any idea of what
a poor shot you were?" mused Pem-
broke. "It was a very good farce."
"I aimed ten feet to the right," said
1.
"'What?"
"Yes."
"Then you knew"-
"Pembroke," said 1, "I had no inten-
tion of killing him or even wounding
him. And I never expected to leave
this place alive. Something has occur-
red during the last 24 hours which we
do not understand."
"He was taking great risks."
"It shows the man he is," said I, and
the remainder of the distance was gone
In silence.
The carriages were in the road a
short way from the inn. Pembroke
and I got into ours. As the prince
placed a foot on the step of his be turn-

"Pardon me," he said, "but I came

The chancellor gave imy baek a

"Cheerful, my son: be cheerful! You
are a favorite already."
"You bewilder me." i
"You have powerful friends, and if
the king is angry you need have no

"I should like to know"- I began.
"Ah," interrupted the chancellor,

whispered as a gray haired main passed

"So do 1, your majesty," I replied
honestly. I
The chancellor shook with laughter,
and the king glared at him furiously.
"What is your name?" asked the
king in a milder tone. He was holding
a missive in his-hand.
"John Winthrop," I answered. I was
wondering what it was all about.
"Were you born in America?"
"Yes, your majesty."
"Is your family an honored one In
your country ?"
"It is," I answered proudly.
"Then why in heaven's name do you
scribble?" cried the king.

knees. Al. what was your life com-
pared to the joy of her humiliation!
Not in the figure of speech-on her liv-
ing. mortal knees, my friend-her liv-
ing knees!" The carriage door banged
behind him.
It was only because Pembroke threw
his arms around me that I did not leap
out of the carriage.
"Sit still. Jack. sit still! If she beg-
ged your life. it was because she- loves
you."
And, full of rage. I saw the carriage
of the prince vanish. As the carriage
vanished, so vanished the prince from
the scene of my adventures.
Arriving at our rooms, we found
them in possession of a lieutenant of
the guard hussars. He was drumming
on the hearthstone with thl4 end of bli
sword scabbard. As we 'entered he
rose and briefly saluted us.
"Which of you twio gttlemen is

My kn es began to knock together.
"I should be-willing." I answered, "if'I
should never be called upon to bear
arms against the country in which I
was born"
."I should never ask you to do that,"
replied the king.
"Yes, your majesty."
"Then marry the Princess Eliza-
beth." he said, tossing the missive to
me.
"Yes, marry her," said the Irrepressi-
ble chancellor, "and some day the king
will put a medal on your breast and
make you a baron of the realm. Your
majesty, come and help me with this
-last pane."
The Princess Elizabeth? I glanced
at the writing on the envelope. It was
Gretchen's. "And, your majesty," I
read, "it Is true that they love each
other. Permit them to be happy. I
ask your forgiveness for all the trou-
ble I have caused you. I promise that
from now on I shall-be the most olbedi-
ent subject in all your kingdom. Hilde-
garde." I dropped the letter on the
table.
"Your majesty." I began nervously,
"there is some mistake. I do not love
her highness, the Princess Elizabeth."
The king and his chancellor whirled
around. The d-ecorations on the panes
remained unfinished. The l-ing re-
garded me with true anger and the
chancellor with dismay.

o all our reveries, when the old days

her that she might-be mine! A-hier I
thought.
The lights of the Inn cheered me and
lifted the gloom. Should I enter by
stealth or boldly ? I chose the second
method. Gretchen and the innkeeper
were in the old hall. I entered and
threw my traps into a corner. As they
turned and saw me consternation was
written on their faces.
"I have found you at last," I said.
holding out a hand to each of them.
The innkeeper thrust his hands behind
his back and sauntered leisurely to-
ward the window. Gretchen showed
signs of embarrassment, and her eyes
were studiously fixed on the cracks
which yawned here and there in the
floor. My hands fell unnoticed.
"You have been looking for us?" she
asked in even tones. "Why have you?"
Vaguely I gazed at her. at the inn-
keeper, then at my traps in the corner.
It was apparent that I was an intruder.
I struck my forehead in anger and de-
spair. Triple fool that I was! I was
nothing to her. She had told me so,
and I had not believed.
"Yes; "why?" asked the innkeeper.
turning around.
"I believe," said I, my voice trem-
bling, "that I am an unwelcome guest.
Is It not so?"
"Oh, as for that," said the Innkeeper,
observing Gretchen, "this is a public
inn on the highway. All wayfarers
are of necessity welcome."
"Go, then, and prepare me a supper,"
said I. "I am indeed hungry, having
journeyed far." I wanted him out of
the room.
The innkeeper, a puzzliflg smile on
his lips, passed ont.
"Gretchen," I burst forth. "In heav-
en's name what does this mean? I
have hunted for you day after day,
week after week. month after month.
I have traveled the four ends of the
continent. I have lived-oh, I do not
know -how I have lived! And when I
do find you it is for this." My voice
broke, and I was positively, on the
verge of tears.
"And was all this fair to her?" asked
Gretchen coldly.
"To her? I do not understand."
"I mean. was all this fair to my sis-
ter?"
"Gretchen." a light piercing the dark-
ness. "has she not written to you?"
"A long time ago. She wanted to see
me on an important matter, but I could
not change my plans at the time. I
shall see her at the palace next week.
Ought you not to be with her instead
of here?"
"Why should I be with her?"
Gretchen laughed, but the key was
false.
"Are you not going to marry her?
Surely it is easy after the king has giv-
en his permission. Have you already
fallen out of love with her after all
your efforts to make her a princess?
Truly man is as unstable as sand and
water. Ah. but you fooled us all to the
top of your bent. You knew frouv the
first that she was a princess, but you
could not find the proofs. Hermann
and I were the means to the end. But
who shall blame you? Not I. I am
very grateful to you for having given
to me a sister. And if you fooled me I
returned measure .for measure. It Is
game and quit. Time hung heavy on
my hands. and the victory, however
short, was amusing."
"I never loved her!" [ cried. Where
were the words I needed?
"So much the worse for you," dis-
dainfully. "But here comes Hermann
to announce your supper."
"I shall not break the bread of inhos-
pit:lity." said I in the bitterness of my
despair. I gathered up my traps and
then I let them tumble back. The
need(led words chine with a rush to nim~
lips. I wenit close to her. "Why did

you humiliate yourself in begging my
life of the prince? Why if my life was
nothing to you? Answer. Why did
you stoop to your knees to that man if
I was worthless to you? Why?"
Her cheeks grew red, then white.
Her lips formed words which she could
niot speak.
"Herr Winthrop's supper is ready,"
announced the innkeeper.
"Go and eat it!" I said childishly.
"Your appetite is gone then ?" imper-
turbably.
"Yes. and get you gone with it!"
The innkeeper surveyed for a space.
"Will you kindly tell -me from whom
you received the information that her
highness was at the inn ?"'
I produced the unsigned letter. He
read it carefully. while Gretchen look-
ed oq nervously.
r "Ach." said the innkeeper, "that
Stahlberg! He shall be dismissed."
Unhappily for him that Individual
was just passing along the corridor.
The innkeeper signaled him to ap-
proach.
"How dared you?" began the Inn
keeper, thrusting the letter under
Stahlberg's nose.
"Dare? I? Herr," said the big fel-
low, "I do not understand. What is
It you accuse me of?:'
"This!" cried the Innkeeper. "You
have written to Herr Winthrop and
told him that her highness was at the
inn. And you *ere expressly forbid-


S n -T"You know that you
wrote this."
"Stahlberg," I cried excitedly. "tell
me why you wrote this note to me and
I'll see that you are taken care of the
rest of your days."
"I forbid him!" commanded Gretchen
in alarm.
"As God hears me. herr." said Stahl-
berg stoutly. "I wrote not a line to you
or to any one."
"Oh!" cried the innkeeper, stamping.
"And you deny that you have written
here that you saw her highness in the
garden three nights ago?"
Gretchen was beginning to grow ter-
rified for some reason. I myself was
filled With wonder, knowing well
enough that nothing about a garden
had Ion written in the note I had re-
ceived.
"Do you dare deny." went on the im-
placable old man. "that you have writ-
ten here that you saw her highness Ie
the garden and that she was weeping
and murmuring this man's name?"
"Oh!" cried Gretchen. gazing wildly
at the door.
The innkeeper suddenly took the be-
wildered giant by the Ahoulders and
pushed him from the room, following
him swiftly, and the door closed noisily
behind them.
My heart was in flames. I under-
stood all now, though I dare say Gret-
chen didn't All at once her head fell
on the back of the chair from which
she had but lately risen. She was
weeping silently and deeply. I did not
move, but stood watching her, drinking

mine! The innkeeper had not really
known her heart till the night in the
garden to which he so adroitly refer-
ted. Then he had made up his mind
that things were not as they should be
and had sent me that anonymous note.
Mine at last. I thought Somehow for
the first time in my life I felt what is
called masterful-that is to say, not all
heaven and earth should take her away
from me now. Softly I passed over to

the hem of her gown and pressed it to
my lips.

"I love you better than all the world."
I made her a princess, that all my ef-
forts were to make you free to wed.
Gretchen, you will not send me away
this time, will you? You will be kind
and bid me to stay?"
"She loves you," whispered Gretchen.
This admitted no reply. I simply
pressed my lips to her hair. The sobs
were growing audibly less.
"I read it in her eyes," persisted
Gretchen.
"Gretchen, answer me.' Io you love
me'?"
"Yes."
I placed my hands against her tem-
ples and turned her head around so
that those blue green eyes. humid and
tearful, looked into mine.
"Oh. I cannot deny it. If I wrong
her in accepting your love. it is be-
cause 1 cannot help it. I love you bet-
ter than all the world. So well do I
love you that"- Her head sank on my
heart. and her sobs began afresh.
"That what. Gretchen?' I asked.
"Nothing." By and by she said:
"Keep faith with me, and I promise to
love as few women can."
Then I kissed her lips. "Gretchen?"
"What is it?"'
"I have an idea that we shall be very
happy. Now let us go and make terms

The opening up of transportation
over the South Eastern Railroad is
going to give the winter visitors to
Tallahassee and the local sportsmen
some of the finest opportunities that
they have had for many years past.
For the small sum of $1.25 they can
go down to and return from the
Wacissa river country. There they
can find ample accommodations or
camp out, as they choose. The
train goes down on Tuesdays, Thurs-
days and Saturdays, leaving the Bell
Air crossing (this city) at. 3 o'clock
p. m. Parties can go down and
have a whole day's hunt and return
here by shortly after 9 o'clock on the
following day. The Wacissa section
is taid by those who have just been
there to be one of the best hunting
grounds in the Southern States to-
day. Quail, ducks, turkeys and cat
squirrels are found in abundance.
Bear and deer are also to be found
in the swamps. Besides this it is
given up to be one of the best fishing
places in this section. In short, it is
said to he a veritable "Sportsman's
Paradise."

Lake City, Jan. 2.-The Stone-
wall Chapter, Daughters of the Con-
federacy, of this city, after hard and
faithful labor, have succeeded in rais-
ing sufficient funds to place head and
foot tones and a modest granite shaft
above the resting place, in Lake
City's Greenwood Cemetery, of those
brave and courageous heroes who
fell in the battle of Olustee, and will
have the unveiling ceremonies on
Friday, January 4th, at 10:30 o'clock
in the forenoon, and have arranged
for the occasion an interesting pro-
gramme. *
The speakers are to be Judge
Washington M. Ives, Col. E. 1Brown
and Capt. David L. Geer, on the part
of the E. A. Perry Camp of Confed-
erate Veterans, and M. Maurice
Soarborough, Jr., who will speak on
behalf of the Gen. Jesse J. Finley
Camp, Sons of Confederate Vete-
rans. These gentlemen are all bril-
liant and fluent speakers, and will no
doubt well entertain the expected

borough, Jr, who speaks for the
Sons, is one of Lake City's leading
attorneys, and has a flow of lan-
guage seldom possessed by a young
man of 24 years, and he is undoubt-

When threatened by pneumonia or
any other lung trouble, prompt relief is
necessary, as it is dangerous to delay.
We would suggest that One Minute
Cough Cure be taken as soon as indica-

It cures quickly and its early use pre-
vents consumption. All dealers.

"whieh will ru (pr thirty years. The
Treasury Department declares that
these transactions show a great sav-
ing for the Government, estimated
to amount tW some *10,000,000, this
being the amount saved by the re-
duction of interest to the date of
maturity of the old bonds. No ac-
count is taken of the fact that the
new bonds have to run some twenty-
two years longer than the old ones.
Two per cent; interest on say *450,-

$9,000,000 por annum, or *198,000,-
(000 for twekity-two years, all of!
which will bd a dead loss if the gov
ernment should be able to pay off
these bonds At or before their matu-;
rity. The lojs will be in proportion
to the amount that might be paid off
at or near maturity. However, the
Treasury Department treats the
American people as infants by assur-
ing them that they have made a
great saving when they have actually
made a loss..
