important meeting in this city 0

presentatives from all the leading

OasIications, embracing in all about U
re hundred articles. They were
ken up, one at a time, and disposed f
in regular order, occupying the
hole of the lengthy day and night (
esions until the whole lot had been
posed of.
At the beginning of the session P
ie railroad people took the ground
t the Commission had no right to
ake classifications, that their prov-
ce was only to revise the specifica-
Ds made by the roads. This con-
tion and other similar ones being
erruled, the merits of the case 1

State Senator Rouse's condition is
such now. that the attending physi-
cianv-Drs. Gwynn and Philbrick-
consider every symptom favorable,

through, and one that in some re-
spects has surprised the physicians.
He was shot on the 20th of Decem-
ber, he ball a 38 pistol ball, enter-
ing the left side of the stomach and
rai)lng downward.
Dr. Gwynn was summoned to the
wounded man's home near Sopchop-
py, and -went down on a special
train. The wound was one that
might either heal quickly, giving
very little trouble, or terminate fat-
ally almost :w quickly. The doctor
dressed it, the only thing to be done
until further developments, and re-
turned home.
Two days later the patient had a
bad turn, and telegraphed for the
doctor. Hie had several dangerously
sick patients in the city whom he
could not leave, and sent Dr. Phil-
brick. The latter found the patient
in a bad way, and at once brought
him to this city. Then followed a
tussle between medical and surgical
skill and the grim monster, which
but for the serious possibilities,
would have been exceedingly inter-
esting. Dr. Philbrick gave the pa-
tient almost continuous attention,
and Dr. Gwynn went down to ad-
vise with him as often as necessary.
On the second or third day treat-
ment seemed to have gained the

mastery, and the patient appeared to
be recovering rapidly. But about
the 10th:or 12th day sluffing of the
wounded parts inside the stomach set
in so rapidly that an operation was
made necessary-and quickly at
The patient was then taken to Miss
Blake's Private Sanitarium on Mon-
roe street, and the above physicians,
assisted by their fellow practitioners
in this city, made anincision (neces-
sarily large) in the stomach, re-
moved the decomposing parts,
washed him out and dressed the
wound again.

On Sunday January 14, 1901,:
Ca-pt. James Weir Inglis died at
"Live Oak," Leon county. Capt.
liglis was borp in ,Edinburgh, Scot
land, about sixty-three years ago.
Hlis father was a noted professor of
the University of Edinburgh. Cap-
tain Inglis himself was a man of ed-
ucation and culture. Hle could
speak seven different lan-
guages and was well versed in the
Latin and Greek classical literature.
He was a retired British army officer
on half pay. He first served as first
lieutenant of the Royal Marines and
subsequently as captain in the same
corps. His first active service was
under Garibaldi in Italy, afterwards
he served in the British navy in
China and Japan, where he was twice
wounded, once by a sabre cut across
the head and again in the leg with a
bullet wound. He was retired
on half pay during the Glad-
stone administration. He came to
Florida about sixteen years
ago, and after living in this county
for a number of years, he went to
the Gulf Coast, in Wakulla county,
where he lived until this fall. The
immediate cause of his death was ca-
tarrh of the stomach.
The following gentlemen acting as
pall bearers, bore his body to the
grave in the city cemetery last Tues-
day-morning: A. G. Goodbody, Geo.
McNess, Bert Radford, John Craig,
.1oh .McDougall and Alex Jacobs.

testant Episcopal church, read the

Gloreious News
.Comes D-rom Dr. D. B, ,g,
tle4 of El-ctfiec Bitters has cured Mrs.
Brewer of s--ofula, which had caused
her great suffering for years. Terrible
sores would break out on her head and
face. and the best doctors could give no
help; but her cure is complete and her
health is excellent." This shows what
thousands have proved-that Electric
Bitters is the best blood purifier known.
It's the supreme remedy for eczema,
better, salt rheum, ulcers, boils and run-
ning sores. It stimulates liver, kidneys
and bowels, expels poisonous substances,
helps digestion, builds up the strength.

Fine Sport For Visitors.
One of the finest hunting places
at this season of the year is
the country surrounding Panacea
Springs. There is a 25,000 acre
preserve, where quail, turkeys and
doves are found in abundance, and
miles and miles of seacoast and
grass islands in the bay, on any of
which the very best of duck and
wild geese shooting can be had.
The latter can be seen in flocks of
thousands any day, and with a
proper guide it is an easy matter for
an experienced hunter to bag sev-
eral of them on a day's hunt.
Guides, boats, calls, decoys and in
fact, all the paraphernalia used in
hunting on land and water can be
secured at the hotel.
It is indeed a splendid place for
sportsmen, and is easily accessible.
Hacks meet all trains at Sopchoppy,
and teams can be provided to take
parties out hunting. New gaslights
have recently been put in all rooms
at the hotel, hot and cold baths are
furnished at all times, as well as fires
and all other conveniences that add
to the comfort of the guests. The
present management claim and can
substantiate it, too, that no such
table fare is given anywhere else in
the State for the very low rates
charged. In fact, it is as good as
the best, and at about half the usual

T- Leoonora Jackson Concert.
It ot often that this city has
nity to hear such an ag-
of talent as the trio of ar-
gmePB _10DOW M

with Leonora Jackson, the famous
violin virtuoso, as the bright partic-
ular star. She ranks amongst the
world's leading violinists to-day, and
the fact that she is an American
should also assure her a hearty wel-
come. -Her playing will afford a
treat which none should miss. The
soprano, Josephine Elburna, a pro-
tege of the famous opera singer.
Mme. Lilli Lehmann, has won hei
laurels abroad, and this autumn in
forty concerts with Miss Jackson
proved everywhere a great favorite.
Her voice is said to be of rare range,
dower and sweetness. Selden Pratt
the third member of this brilliaul
trio, appeared in eighty concerts last
winter with Mme. Emma Nevada
and this autumn, like Miss Elburna
shared the honors of forty ngage-
ments with Miss Jackson. An honor-
graduate of the Royal School ol
Music at Berlin, he ranks easily
among the foremost American pian
ists, and as an accompanist has nc
superior. The combination of these
artists is an exceptionally strong one.
and the concert in question is certain
to be a rare musical event.

Discovered by a Woman.
Another great discovery has been
made, and that too, by a lady in this
country. "Disease fastened its clutcht-t.
upon her and for seven years she with-
stood its severest tests, but her vital or-
gans were undermined and death seem-
ed imminent. For three months she
coughed incessantly, and could not
sleep. She finally discoveredd a way to
recovery, by purchasing of us a bottei
of Dr. King's New Discovery for
Consumption, and was so much relieved
on taking first dose, that she sept all
nihlit;and with two bottles, has b-,en


parts. Tallahassee will. appreciate'
another visit by them next season.
Tried Five Doctors.

trouble for years, had tried five doctors
without benefit, but three bottles of Fo

The installation of the Rev. S. L.
IcCarty as pastor of the Preslyt.-
rian Church in this. city, on last Sal-
bath morning, was exceedingly inter-
esting. The church w:is crowded,
the Methodist congregation in kindly
interest attending.
The sermon was preached by Rev.
E. P. Mickel of the Madison Church,
whose text was taken from the Sa-
vior's parable of the "Talents:" "Well
done, thou good and faithful ser-
vant," and was delivered with earn-
est, forceful effect. The charge to
the pastor was given by the Rev. L.
Baker of the church at Monticello,
and the Rev. N. G. Quarterman of
the church or Quincy delivered the
charge to the congregation.
During the services the music ren-
dered by the choir was appropriate
and exceedingly beautiful.
Don't bolt your food, it irritates your
stomach. Choose digestible food and
chew it. Indigest on is dangerous sick-
ness. Proper care prevents it. Shaker
Digestive Cordial cures it. That is the
long and short of indiwestioo. Now,
the question is: Have you got indiges.
tion? Yes, if you have pain or discom-
fort after eating, headache, dizziness,
nausea, offensive breath, heartburn,
langour, weakness, fever, jaundice,
flatulence, loss of appetite, irritability.
constipation, etc. Yes, you have indi-
gestion. To cure it, take Shaker Diges-
tive Cordial. The medicinal herbs and
plants of which Shaker Digestive Cor-
dial is composed, help to digest the
food in yourstomach: help to strengthen
your stomach. When your stomach is
strong, care will keep it so. Shaker Di-

Now, skill in any line comes only
through practice. "Practice makes
perfect," and perfection in reading
enables your child to take in a line at
a glance, whereas a poor reader gets
his ideas a word or two at a time. A
few minutes suffice the bright pupil
to cover the ground over which his
unfortunate classmate plods with "la-
borious pains" for an hour.

To Parents:
Reading atter for your children
is a matte of great importance.
Good books nd good papers are the
best of frien a. Very few are mak-
ing any eff rt to introduce these
would-be friends to you. These facts
constrain us to beg a few minutes of
your time. You want your children
educated. Many of you are sacrific-
ing much to send them to school.
But many of them make slow pro-
gress, from flack of ability to read
well. They are wrestling with the
big words of their school books,when
they cannot read a short article'in
the daily paper well enough to keep
you awake. Twenty minutes a day
in a reading class at school never
made a good. reader. Could a boy

Cigarette Smoking
Dr. C. A.Clinton, of the San Fran-
cisco Board of Education has made a
special study of the effects of cigar-
ette smoking among the school
children of that city, and in the
Midland Methodist expresses him-
self as followsE
"A good deal has been said about
the evil of cigarette smoking,- but
one-half of the truth has never been
told. I have watched this thing
for a lonk time, and I siy calmly and
deliberately that I believe cigarette
smoking is as bad as opium smoking.
I am now talking of boys, remember.
The effect upon grown men is not,
of course, so marked.
"A cigarette fiend will lie and
steal, just as a morphine fiend will
lie and steal. Cigarette smoking
blunts the whole moral nature. It
has an appalling effect upon the sys-
tem. It first stimulates and then stu-
pefies the nerves. It sends into con-
sumption. It gives them enlarge-
ment of the heart, and sends them to
the insane asylum. I am physician
to several boys' schools, and am often
called in to prescribe for palpitation
of the heart. In nine cases out of
ten it-is caused by cigarette smok-
ing. Every physician knows the
cigarette heart. I have seen bright
boys turned into dunces, and straight
forward honest boys made into mis-
erable cowards by cigarette smoking.
I am not exaggerating. I am speak-
ing the truth, and every physical,
and nearly every teacher knows it."

committee or Hopkins bill, to 386.
The result was largely brought about
by the influence of certain Senators
from several of the larger States, who
threw the weight of their influonpe
in the scale in favor of the larger
When it became apparent .that
these factors were at work against
his bill, Mr. Hopkins attempted to
cRmpromise by giving an additional
Representative each to North Da-
kota, Colorado and Florida, but ad-
versaries refused to compromise
after complete victory was assured.
The Crumpacker proposition to re-
commit the, bill for the purpose of
ascertaining what states abridged the
right to vote to an extent which
would entail reduced representation
was defeated-130 to 110. There
was no roll call on the vote, but a
number of Republicans voted with
the Democrats.
Under the bill, as passed today, no
State loses a Representative, and the
following make gains: Illinois, New
York, Texas, three each; Minnesota,
New Jersey and Pennsylvania, two
each; Arkansas, California, Colorado,
Connecticut, Florida, Louisiana, Mas-
sachusetts, Mississippi, Missouri,
North Carolina, North Dakota,
Washington, West Virginia and
Wisconsin, one each.
The bill provides that whenever a
new State is admitted the Repre-
sentative assigned to it shall be in
addition to the number .provided in
the bill. It also adds a provision,
never hitherto incorporated in a re-
apportionment bill, to the effect that
Congressional districts, in addition
to being "contiguous," shall also be
"compact." States which are allowed
additional Representatives by,tIbe bill
shall by its terms elect them at large
until the Legislature shall redistrict
the States. .6

Florida Members Pleased.
Washington, January 8. The
Florida members are well pleased
over the vote on the reapportionment
bill, Florida now being assured of
three instead of two Congressmen.
The Florida members of the House,
if the secret be told, did not really
stand to1 lose even by the Hlopkins'
bill, an amendment to that measure
(increasing the House membership
to 360 and thus including Florida
among the States to gain a member)
having been made and adopted just
prior to the substitution of the Bur-
leigh bill, which had a like effect for
Florida. The bill as passed is the
Hopkins' bill, amended to embrace
Mr. Burleigh's views. The vote was
really a Burleigh victory. The
measure provided for a House mem-
bership of 386.
Messrs. Sparkman and Davis,.
while they did not participate exteni-
sively in the exciting debate, watched
closely the measure, and by judicious
management assured to Florida,
without making enemies of either

"Oh. sir," replied Rocky mendacious-

in the country developed. He staid at

are necessary to t4 purpose of
the work, and rules:-of evidence
and forms of prjoejure in both
civil and criminal cases. It

braces the numerous d anges which
legislation subsequent to the Re-

necessary to an understanding
of our statutes. 1 The Man-
ual will, therefore, to bhe extent con-
templated by the act iinder which it
was framed, supply 4ur statute law
in one book.
Providential and other causes, over
which no one had anr control, have
delayed the book months beyond the
expectation of those engaged in get-
ting it out. But it iJl bP the
less serviceable on tht account.
On the patent freoit page of the
Monticello Tribune oi January 11th
we find the following startling arti-
"A special from NMadison, Fla,
says Thursday night two legroes,
Jim Denson and a hilfbrother, were
taken from the county jail,- by per-
sons unknown;, criei into the woods
about a.half mile yom towniaud
hung. The bodies were also riddled
with bullets.
"They are the per ns, who a few
weeks ago, were rged with the
killingmg ,of F 'Redding, a
farmer residing in northern part
of Lbon county. T y ed to Geor-
gia, were arrested, turned to Flor-
ida and confined in he Leon county
jail. -n
"While attending a'entertain-
ment a- the of :i ume Thursday
night, given by the Knights of Py-
thias, the Sheriff wa informed that
some one wished t see him. On
reaching the street he keys of the
jail were demanded f him. He re-
fused, stating that e did not have
them, but several min seized him and
succeeded in getting them. To re-
pair to the jail and ecunte their pur-
pose was the work f a short time.
The night was cold nd rainy.
"There was no n eor excitement
and but few of the itizens knew of

the lynching until riday morning.
The sound of the fi ng of guns was
heard by many, bu no notice was
taken of it, as during Christmas and
New Year holidays, the explosion of
fireworks in town ad the firing of
pistols in the subur waq of nightly
occurrence. From te number of
empty cartridges o nd at the place,
it is estimated thi the number of

members of the River and Harbor
Committee are from these States.
"Naturally the harbors and rivers
which need improving, with the ex-
ception of the Mississippi river, are
in the coast States. That explains
why it is that the bulk of the appro-
priations go to less than one half of
the States of the Union. And it is
but natural that the members of the
River and Harbor Committee should
be from those States. They know
more about the needs of rivers and
harbors than do members who live
in interior States.
"But because the coast States get
the bu|k of the river and harbor ap-
propriations it does not follow that
the interior States do not get any
benefits from them. The products
of the interior States, those of the
farms as well as those of the factories,
have to go to the seaboard on their
way to foreign markets. The ocean
freight rates depends largely upon
the condition of the rivers leading
to the sea and the harbors. Good
harbors mean lower rates from the in-
terior to the sea. Lower ocean and
river rates mean higher prices to the
producers in the interior. Therefore
interior States are about as deeply
interested in river and harbor appro-
priations as are the coast States. The
only advantage the coast States have
over the interior States in the matter
of river and harbor appropriations
is that improved harbors contribute
to the growth of the seaport cities.
"Evidently Mr. Cushman, in attack-
ing the River and Harbor bill, aimed
to get an opportunity to make a
speech rather than to complain of
injustice done interior States. It can
hardly be otherwise than that he un-
derstands the situation thoroughly.
If there were real force in the point
he made it would have attracted the
attention of the interior States long
before Mr. Cush man made it the sub-
ject of a speech."

During the debate on the Hopkins
reapportionmeafbtlb a vote was taken
incidentally which may be considered
approximately a test of the strength
in the iHouse ,of the proposition to
reduce the representation of those
States that have adopted constitu-
tional amendments which disfran-
chise a large part of-the negro vote.
A motidh'to embody the principle
of the-Crumpacker bill in the reap-
portionnient act was defeated by a
vote of 115 to 85.
It seems to be generally conceded
that the Crumpacker bill is dead, for
this session, at least, and that the
prospect of its revival is dim.
It cannot be denied that there is
constitutional authority for such leg-
islation, but the more level-headed
Republicans are convinced that even
its agitation is impolitic.
President McKinley is known to
be opposed to any attempt to reduce
the proportionate representation of
the South, and to have used his in-
fluence to discourage any tendency
in that direction. Like efforts have
been made by other Republicans
high in power and influence. It is
probable that the Republican party
is not displeased with the elimination
of a large part of the negro vote in
the South, as it will relieve them of
much of the pressure of the negro
politicians of the South for official

The idea of building up a white
Republican party in the South is
gaining favor with the Republican
leaders rapidly, and it is admitted
that such an attempt will be utterly
hopeless so long as the negro is the
recipient of his present share of offi-
cial favors, or anything like it-At-

ance, but, One of the notable disclosures of
name of the recent census is the great in-
d inform crease in the population of Florida,
for such which has increased 45 percent. in
nity.. ten years, the gain of Florida be-
tween 1870 and 1890 being at an al-
,CIL most identical ratio. At the close of

capital to the development of the
horticultural, phosphate and lumber
interests, and to the popularity of
some Florida cities as places for win-
ter residence. Much of the area of
Florida is under water, some of it is
marshy, and these obstacles to its de-
velopment have had to be overcome.
Yet no other American State, except
a few of the sparsely settled Terri-
tories newly admitted as States since
1888, has increased more rapidly in
population than has Florida.-New
York Sun.
The next Legislature of Florida
should make an effort to equalize
taxes. The member or members
who can reach a proper conclusion in
this direction will deserve, and un-
undoubtedly receive, thanks of a suf-
fering people. If the taxes of Flor-
ida were equalized, assessments
would be lowered, the revenue would
be increased, and the material wel-
fare of the people as a whole would
be greatly advanced. The people's
representatives should legislate2 for
all the people. The rich should not
be favored at the expense of the
poor.-Gainesville Sun.
Carolina's Gold Mine.
The phosphate beds of South Car-
olina have yielded an immense reve-
nue to that State, as will be shown
by the following statement.
Royalties paid into the State Treas.
ury from 1870 to 1900, inclusive,
amounted to $3,242,968.53. The
smallest amount paid in any one year
was in 1870, when the State received
$1,989. The largest amount in any
one year, 1889, was $237,150. In
the early days of the industry the
State virtually had no competition in
the markets of the world, and the
companies mining received from $6
to $8 per ton for the rock.
This price stimulated the compa-
nies to put forth every effort to se-
cure rock, and the result was that
from 175,000 to 235,000 tons were
put upon the market each year, and
the State received $1 per ton royalty
for all rock sold. Now, owing to the
great depreciation in the value of the
South Carolina rock, caused by the
development of the phosphate beds
in Tennessee and Florida, and the
opening up of phosphate deposits in
foreign countries, the State receives
only 25 cents per ton royalty where
the selling price does not exceed $3
per ton.

ited number of rounds in Florida.
The Governor replied that prize-

On the Inauguration.
Ex-Governor Bloxham, in retiring
from the Gubernatorial chair, can
have the consolation of knowing that
it was perhaps only a constitutional
provision that prevented him from
being able to be his own successor,
as two successive terms in that office
is unconstitutional in 'Florida.-

The inaugural at Tallahassee Tues-
day was a red letter day in the Cap-
ital City's history. It is now Gover-
nor Jennings and ex-Governor Blox-

saying that Judge Jennings will

complimentary manner of the Demo-

the military and civic parades made
up a spectacle not soon to be forgot-
ten. The inaugural address was a
masterful effort, and foreshadowed
his message to the next Legislature.
The new Governor comes in loaded
with honors and the responsibilities
of office, and ex-Governor Bloxham
retires from active politics, carrying
with him the love and esteem of all
Floridians. We predict a prosper-

William S. Jennings, who was on
Tuesday, with fitting ceremony, in-
augurated Governor of Florida, en-
ters upon his important duties under
extremely auspicious circumstances.
He begins hisr administration with
the State upon the threshold of an
era of progress and prosperity that
promises to be unequaled in all its
history. He was the choice of an
undivided party, and he assumes
office *ith the question of the right
of the white man to rule, which has
distracted the South so many years,
forever settled. Thus the way is
smooth, and the future full of possi-
bilities. Governor Jennings will
have ample opportunity to advance
the interests of his State, and we
doubt not that he will make full and
good use of it. Our congratulations

Gov. Bloxham's Peculiarity.
The Florida Journal, in referring
to one of Governor Bloxham's pecu-
liarities, which retained for him
thousands of friends in all sections
of the State, says:
"William D. Bloxham can now
write an X before his name. He
has made the best governor that
Florida has ever had by all odds, and
he will be remembered as the only
man who thus far served the State
twice in that capacity. Urbane, pol-
ished' and dignified, Mr Bloxham is
a fine specimen of the southern gen-
tleman of the good old school, and
one, moreover, who is gifted with an
eloquence peculiarly his own. Those
who enjoyed the governor's ac-
quaintance will not fail to recall one
of his peculiarities, and one which
doubtless contributed much to his
popularity. He never forgot a face
or the man that went with it. He
may have met you but once, and that
may have been, let us say, two years
ago, but encounter him on the streets
of Tallahassee, of Jacksonville or
Tampa-it mattered not where-
and that cordial greeting, properly
labeled and addressed, was certain
to ring out. The instinctive power
of memorizing names-and faces, is a
great gift-especially for a politician,

cerely regret your going away and
that our love and very best wishes
for your happiness, peace and plenty,
here and hereafter, be another souv-
enir kept in the jeweled casket of
your memory.
I now offer in view of the general.
feeling of regret among the leaguers,
and at their request, the following
resolutions, asking at the same time
that a copy-be spread upon-the min-
utes of the league, a copy to be
delivered to the subject, and a copy
printed in spch paper as the league
shall design te:
1st. Be itiresolved that it is the
sense of th4 League of Tallahassee
that the parking with our pastor and
leader, Brother W. J. Carpenter,
gives cause for regret to the mem-
bers. | -
2d. That we appreciate his hard
working eff&ts to upbuild this body
and assure him of our intention of
continuing in the house which "looks
up and lifts up."
3d. That it is the sense of the
League th"t our best wishes be
offered for: his happiness, and that a
continuance of his power for good
among all alike be long accorded to
him, and that when the Master calls,
as call some day he surely will, our
retiring minister will find his
"election sire," and that absent faces
at the gate to greet him from the
Tallahassee League will all be made
complete in the years that are to fol-
low after.

On Wednesday evening of Christ-
mas week a free entertainment of
stereopticon pictures was given by
Prof. Clark to the colored people of
"Schitz-u-o-ka" plantation. Sev-
eral hundred people and crowds of
children from the neighboring plan-
tations congregated and viewed the
dissolving pictures with great ex-
pressions of delight. The scenes in
the life of Christ, such as "Christ
preaching in the Synagogue," "Christ
at Lazarus' Tomb," etc., by Tissot-
seemed to impress them almost with
superstitious awe.
A musical entertainment followed,
and the distribution of garments and
other Christmas gifts from three
barrels and a box full of things sent
by one of the churches at Kingston,
N. Y, where Prof. Clark made an
appeal for the colored people at one
of his reoeni services.

Being more or less of a dutiful son
it is with no little compunction that 1
begin this narrative, for it nearly con-
cerns my father, and I fear he will
come none too well out of the ordeaL
!Yet what I have to relate is so remark-
able that for its singularity alone' I
*ay hope to be pardoned any lack of
Sial piety. And perhaps, when all is
aid and done, my father, though he
may not cut an Irreproachable figure,
may appear' not quite a contemptible
,oe. It must not 'be forgotten that I
,aOly knew the wreck of him; the stout
ship that had battled with so many
mp t*** In so many seas was to me
pactically unknown. Yet, from what I
have since heard, there was a time
when the name of Captain Bob King-
at= was respected in very strange
mmlpany-when his mere entrance into
a public place caused men to nudge
each other and whisper low, when
from Hakodate down to the -Torres
tralt his name was common proper-
ty. But that was long ago, long before
the Terror had seized him.
My personal knowledge of him up to
any seventeenth year was extremely
dight, for, with rare intervals, he spent
the whole of that period at sea. Some-
times he was-away for two or three
years, together, and once he staid
abroad for 4ve years at a stretch. To
me his absence meant little or nothing.
Had It not been for my mother's talk
of him I should have forgotten his very
existence. To my Imagination be seem-
ed almost a myth. a sort of Flying
Dutchman, who was forever battling
with stormy seas. But to her, of course.
eK was still the man to whom she had
lighted her troth, and often had I
aaght her poring over her album, in
whlch were at least'a dozen portraits
st him. And though at first I did not
knW. what her hasty closing of the
took meant. I have still a vivid recol-
Section of her great, sad eyes as she
tuned them up to me-eyes full of a
pitiful, inquiring pathos. Sometimes I
thought the scrutiny satisfied her, at
others she turned away with a sigh
'which I failed to .read. Perhaps In
those days I did not try very hard-for
what has a boy to do with the Inner
thoughts of women?-but It all comes-
back now, and I read the meaning of
those looks as I would a written page.
But, boy as I was, I soon knew that
his long absences preyed upon her
mind. Never once did I hear her mur-
mur a word against him, and whenever
abe spoke of him It was always with a
glowing satisfaction, just as one sees
a face light up at the resurrection of a
pleasant memory. But it was a faroff
u.memory and one charged with ineffa-
ble sadness.

Now he was in Japan, now in Java
and now at Thursday island. It seems
be had a boat of his own and used to
trade between the China seas and the
northern coasts of Australia. That be
was a shrewd business man as well as
a capable sailor I had no doubt, for.
though we did not live in luxury, we
had never a monetary trouble. No. it
was not the want of money that grad-
ually paled my mother's cheek ai.l

was not for money that she watched
the postman come down the road week
in and week out.

No Longer Used to Reeord the Joys
and Sorrows of Humanity.
The solemn and impressive custom of
announcing death by the tolling of the
church bell will soon be but a vague
and distant memory. "The passing
bell" has itself passed away, and its
slow measured accents no longer tell
the story of the departure of one more
soul. The brief notice in the daily pa-
per. while it conveys explicit informa-
tion, fails to give something that the
bell's tolling carried with it. The sol-
emn rhythmic tones awakened a mo-
mentary vibration in the breast of each
listener and bade each pause for sym-
pathy and meditation. The bell ad-
moqished the sinnes to repent and
warned the thoughtless that time was
flying while it spoke clearly and con-
prehensively and bade all scattered
and preoccupied inhabitants attend its
The bell's voice is identified with nill
the deepest and most sacred human
emotions. It has bespoken the Joys and
sorrows of all mankind for centuries.
Is its voice to die away and have no
part in the life of the future? The

in some song or story. The Christmas

Although almvit absolute immunity
is secured for ap period of six months

that its effects'will continue beyond
that time. In tlie majority of cases it
does. but the !4erval for which this

The Addres He Get.
A Russian gentleman tells a funny
History of his first encounter with the
englishh language.
The day after his arrival in London
he made a call on a friend in Park
lane, and on leaving the premises In-
Ieribed in his notebook what he sup-
posed to be the correct address.
The next day, desiring to go to th6
amne place again, he called a cabman
and pointed to the address that he had
written down. The cabman looked
him over, laughed, cracked the whip,
and drove away without him.
This experience being repeated with
two or three other cabmen, the Rus-
.san turned indignantly to the police,
with no better results. One officer
would laugh, another would tap his
head and make a motion imitating the
revolution of a wheel.
Finally the. poor foreigner gave it up,
and, with a great deal of difficulty,
recalling the landmarks which he had
observed the day before, found his way
to his friend's house. Once there, and
In company with one who could under-
stand him, he delivered himself of a
hot condemnation of the cabmen and
the police of London :for their imperti-
nence and discourtesy.
His friend asked for a look at the
mirth provoking address, and the
mystery was solved. This was the
"Ring the bell."
The Russian had with great care
copied, character for character, the
legend of the gatepost. supposing that

Mustngt "Own" Their Engines.
The railroad engineer who "owns"
his engine is not in favor with his su-
periors. Complaints about trivial mat-
ters are likely to be made against him,
and soon he finds himself without a
berth, The.phrase "owning an engine"
does not mean that the engineer has
acquired title to his iron horse. The
expression is used of a man who has
been with a certain engine so long that
he becomes a part of it. He knows its
every peculiarity. he feels its every
protest against a heavy load. and he
nurses it and coddles it as If it were
his child. He dislikes to run the en-
gine at top speed for fear something
will happen to it. and in consequence
his train is frequently behind time. He
takes a grade at half the rate he should.
and he runs cautiously down hilL In
a word. he "owns" his engine.
Of course .this is all very nice and
Idyllic, and it is, the kind of thing a
person likes to read about in stories of
the railroad. But plain, practical rail-
road men look at it differently. They
argue that the best engineer is tbc- man

Took a Mean Advantage.
A supernumerary in Richard Mans-

was informed that a near relative of
his had departed this life and had left
him a competence, so he decided to
leave the dramatic profession and, to
quote him, become respectable. Before
leaving he determined to take his re-
venge on Mansfield for the attacks on
his amour propre that gentleman had
The play was "Richard III," and the

In due time Richard remarked, "Off

touched his helmet in the style of a
footman and replied loudly and genial-
"That'll be attended tQ, old chap.
We'll take care of old Buck. It'll be
all right!" and retired gracefully. When
the infuriated Mansfield came off to
commit murder, he found the super had
fled.-Chicago Chronicle.

Peeallarities of X Rays.
There are many curious things about
X rays which seem to puzzle even the
scientists. Signor Briguiti, who has
been making experiments with theit at
Rome. says that the visibility of a sub-
stance to the eye is no criterion ofits
visibility to the X rays. The rays can-
not see through glass, which is trans-
parent to the eye. whereas aluminIum,
which is opa4ue to the eye. Is transpar-
ent to the X rays. The rays can see a
splinter of glass in the hand. but not a
splinter of wood. Most inks are trans-
parent to the rays, including printer's
Ink. but some of them are opaque. The
rays can see through a postoffice direct-
ory. but if a paper with words written
on it be put in the middle'of the direct-
ory the rays will reveal these words
and nothing behind them.

"Do you subscribe to this statement
that a woman ought to lock up to her
husband?" inquired Mr. Meekton's
"Well, Henrietta." he answered cau-

duty to assume the position of perilous
responsibility at the top of the step-
ladder."-Washington Star.

Where Stone For Pyramids of the
Desert Was Proe red.
On the- way to Philw and the head of
the cataract, a short distance south of
Assouan, we come upon the ancient
quarries which supplied the granite
for the columns, statues and obelisks
throughout Egypt for many centuries.
An obelisk which we saw lies in Its
native bed. It is 95 feet In length, and
three sides have been carefully cut,
but for some unknown reason it was
never, separated entirely from the par-
ent rock. The surface bears the tool
marks of the workmen. The grooves
In it show that it was to have been re-
duced at the sides. It was supposed
that the stone was split from its bed
by drilling holes in the rock and filling
them with wooden wedges, which were
afterward saturated with water, the
swelling wood furnishing the power.
, From illustrations in the temples it is
clear that these great monuments were
floated down the river on flatboats and
rafts and then carried Inland by arti-
ficial canals or dragged overland by
thousands of slaves. In one of the
tombs at Beni-Hassan is a picture il-
lustrating the process. The great stone
is loaded upon a huge sled drawn by a
multitude of workmen. One man is en-
gaged in pouring water upon the run-
ners to prevent friction; another stands
at the left of the statue and beats time.
that the men may work in unison.
while overseers, provided with whips,
urge the laborers to their task. What
king desired to extricate this block
from the quarry. why it was left here,
what it was to commemorate, we can
never know. The riddle of the sphinx
is solved, but the riddle of the obelisk
in the quarry will no doubt remain
with us forever.-Chautauquan.
