A Hkrs Eye of the Colored

Rev. Mr. G. Ga ner, merchant
and farmer, of Bradfordville, would
have been liable to an indiotrent be-
fore the grand jury of Leon county
for the killing of fifteen or sixteen
hogs on Friday, the! 25th inst., but
inquiry into the casq would make a
grand jury laugh a"d any court of
justice smile, for they were all his
raising from his brood sows, and fed
from his own crib. He is one of the
prosperous and most successful farm-
ern and business men of this county.
Listen at the argument by Messrs.
G. W. Rollins, Isaac Palmer and
Wilson Jackson, our leading market
men, about buying pork for their
customers. One asked, "Did you
hear about Mr. Gardner's hog-killing
time?" Palmer said, '-Yes; I am on
my way there." Mr. Rollins replied,
"1 am experienced in this business.
You will pay his price."
Newbern-Wallar.-Mr. Robert
Newbern, of this city, returned Fri-
day with his bride,' formerly Miss
Mamie Wallar, of Os ola.
Mrs. Peggie Coo tney is doing
business at the same place, and is as
pleasant and polite al ever. A gen-
tleman, after eating a nice dish of
fish, asked her if shd had sprinkled
sugar on it. "No, it deed, sir, it is
the way they are fried."
Florida State Normal and Indus-
College will conduct the semi-annual
examination this week.
Prof. H. P. Butler a graduate of
Lincoln University, Penn., who is in
charge of Natural Science will intro-
duce himself on this occasion. The


students say we know 'Prof. Samp-
son because he has had us tangled in
the solution of problems of equations
involving more than one unknown
quantity.
Miss Willa M. Hac ley is making
her mark upon the students by
teaching the science Iusic.
The students seem qo be unusually
polite this week, smili g and bowing
to the different instructors. Mrs. F.
R. Keyser who by virue her useful-
ness and proficiency ts principal of
the Academic Deparment has be-
come a potent factor Jhi this institu-
tion. She says to herself as she sees
them smile and bow,I I appreciate
your politeness, but you must stand
the examination.
A large number of persons are
seen on Saturdays on the street be-
tween the opera house and court
house looking for Messrs. A. R. S.
Twine, who knows bow to give a
man a good sole on his boots; S. J.
Miller, who can make a good suit of
clothes, and Shad Pilloon, who pos-
sesses the happy faculty of preparing-
a nice dish of oysters and other
things, if you desire the proof you
can have it for a dime.
The man who went down the
street Saturday evening smiling was
asked *-what's the matter"'? said, "I
am simply delighted with the fine
oysters 1 bought of Mrs. 0. D. Jones
at 25 cents a quart.
Faithful and polite porters like
Messrs. William Robinson and Guy
McPherson will add to the populari-
ty of any public house, even the
Leon Hotel.
Mr. J. L. Johnson and wife with
their sister, Miss Eugenia, are enjoy-
ing themselves in their newly fur-
nished home. .
House building and contracting is
done by Mr. E. W. Hall, of this city.
Real estate owners can save money
by dealing with him.
Mr. W. G. Stewart, the popular
city barber is looking for the return
of his better half who has been away
from home for a short while.
Mr. Robert Branch reminds one of
that branch that never goes dry be-
cause he continues to go to his place
of employment when it is wet or
dry.

shop ot this city Mr. Tony Williams

was seen b-andling the bind feet of a
large male; the passer by inquired
why was he taking such a desperate
chance? For the dollar there is in it.
On Wednesday night,January 23,
between 10 and 11 o'clock, a large
number of the members of Bethel
A. M. E. Church stormed their pas-
tor, Rev. R. J. Holloway, in such a
manner that gives him an insight in
the noble-heartedness of the people
whom he serves. And therefore ex-
presses in this his most grateful ap-
preciation and his thanks to all.
The minutes of the Orthodox Zion
Primitive Baptist Association, of
which Rev. C. Sneed is Moderator,

The colored citizens are grateful

forts to ri,-e. We have always be-
lieved that the true mission of the

ing, known to foreigners as the Boxers.
"This society embraced men of all
ranks and all ranges of intellect. from
the low cooly to the high official.
Kung's father, so the story went, had
once been a person of some conse-
quence at Peking, but having fallen
under the displeasure of the Son of
Heaven he had been duly decapitated.
Kung's family had therefore to fly to
avoid the imperial wrath, and Kung,
being a man who neither forgot nor
forgave, took to plotting.
"Little by little the importance of
this society increased, and Kung was
willing to prove to me that its power
dominated six provinces. His own
freedom from arrest was proof of the
power he wielded. Indeed he played
upon me to such an extent that I al-
ready saw him seated upon the dragon
throne dispensing provinces to his
trusted servants. In those days It was
anything for a merry life and a short
road to fortune. I was promised both.
My western intellect would prove of
incalculable service to the cause. In
Europe, Australia. America. the society
numbered many white men. but none
in China, for none who might have
joined could speak Chip se with any
fluency. Therefore I might count upon-
ten thousand advantages. I duly be-
came a member of the Society of the
Hidden Meaning.
"Shortly after my inauguration.

and mysteries. I was offered the con-

mand of a vessel which traded up and
down the coast. and I soon found that
my new associates were as good as
their word. Many an excellent piece
of business came my way. and nothing
more was exacted of me than that I
should occasionally carry cargo of
which it was not necessary for me to
see the bill of lading and passengers of
Whom I knew not the legal status.
This I found extremely profitable and
somewhat inclined to my way of think-
ing, for it enabled me to fulfill the
dream of my life and marry your moth-
er. But it so happened that I was no
longer my own master-as what man
is? Hence my frequent journeyings
and long stoppages abroad. Then came
the climax and the subsequent cause of
all my misery.
"I had just concluded a trip from
Chemulpo. in Korea, to Tien-tsin and
was about to betake myself ashore In
the due course of business, when a cooly
advanced across the deck to me and
without speaking a word slipped a pa-
per into my hand. It was not the first
time such a thing had happened, so
that upon opening the paper I was not
at all surprised to see the symbol of
the society. This was that elliptical,
egg shaped sigp seen on your mother's
forehead, on the gateposts, on the sta-
ble door at the killing of the horses. It
is the sign that you may one day see on
my forehead unless I can elude the
emissaries of the society. Why such a
symbol was chosen is no doubt obvious
to you. It is meant to represent an egg
and is symbolical of what may be in-
side the shell .unseen by human eyes.
Simple as it appears, it is an allegory
of deep mea*niug and justly illustrates
the title of the society. When you see

good for a nman. Fools bandy the word
'experience' as though it possessed no
fine distinction 'experience is good
for a man' and such like vague expres-
sions. Aye. good experience is good.
but bad experience is bad.
"Now though you do not know Chi-
na personally I am well aware that
your book knowledge of it is compre-
hensive. for since you have been with
me I have marked your decided predi-
lection for the literature pertaining to
that country. Yes, yes. I have seen
through your subterfuges and have in-
wardly applauded your many vain ef-
forts to surprise me of my secret. 1 do
not blame you. It was fair enough. I
think also that you guessed enough to
insure you a clew to the right road.
But it was only conjecture. was it not?
And that is exasperating. Yet your
stoicism under defeat has not passed
unrecognized. I have no words to ex-
press my admiration of your splendid
silence, of the strength of your will. In
that you are my son. I, too, had it
once. though it is more than possible
you will never fully realize the state-
ment.
"In your readings of China you could
not fail to come across some mention
of the secret societies of that country.
of' which the number is legion. You
will likewise have read of their far-
reaching power and influence. Indeed
such things are universally admitted.
but even those who talk and write so
glibly do not really guess the extent of
that power. Not alone does it extend
over the east, near and far, but the
west is also brought within its influ-
ence. These societies absorb men of
every grade, and, had he cared to
speak, it is highly prQbable that the
Chinese embassador could have ex-
plained the meaning of the egg shaped
sign. Of course if you were to ask him
he would shake his head.. for the Chi-
naman, like all orientals, is a natural
liar. He will lie even when he gains
nothing by it. Imagine then what he
would do when the truth might injure
him. It is curious how in all these
years our rulers seem to have learned
nothing of the Chinese character. I
grow furious when 1I read of them
treating the yellow monkeys with gen-
tlemanly forbearance and conciliation.
There are times -when to stand too
much upon the gentleman is a bad
thing. As a rule people who do that
sort of thing have nothing else to stand
upon. The oriental respects no one but
his master. Conciliation is but a sign
of weakness. No man bothers much
about conciliation when be knows he
can thrash his opponent Peking la
not London. It is not.even St. Peters-
burg. You will presently see what the
gentlemanlike conduct of the Russians
will accomplish.

,turned to the man who had I
brought this misitve who was stand- b
Ink watching me from the stprn of the v
vessel. and, waving him to me. learned c
from him the spot chosen for the as- f
signatlon. Up to that moment I had t
no knowledge of Kung's presence at t
Tien-tsin, believing him to be still at i
bis place in Fuchau. nor could the mes- t
singer offer an explanation or give me i
the slightest information. Like all the
members of the society, he spoke with
the utmost reserve, a commendable
habit in a community where each man
was a spy upon the other.
"However. late that night I put in an
appearance at the appointed place and
was received by Kung and some score
of the chief members of the society. I
could not help wondering what busi-
ness had brought him so near the capi-
tal. though had I known that the stout.
surly looking fellow on his right was
the governor of the imperial province
of Pe-chl-Hi, I might have guessed that
something of the utmost importance
was In the air. As It was. I knew that
It was for no ordinary business I had
been summoned.
"Nor was it The plot, briefly ex-
plained, was the capture of Peking. the
deposition of the emperor and the set-
ting up of a Chinese as against a Mant-
choo dynasty. I fairly gasped for breath
as this scheme was unfolded, foresee-
ing certain failure in such a gigantic
undertaking. But this did not seem to
disconcert Kung and his friends. A
thousand men had been secretly armed.
The Tartar governor of the capital was
one of the revolutionists. He would
open the gates; the rest was easy. The
Imperial family were to be put to the
sword, wiped out root and branch-the
only way to prevent trouble with pre-
tenders in the future. The populace,
once assured of the end of the Mant-
choo dynasty, would rally to,the new
order of things.
"As Kung deliberately unfolded this
gigantic scheme, which from time to
time was met with a 'wah' of approval
from his listeners. I thought that he
addressed more of his remarks to me
personally than I cared to receive.
Round and round the stolid faces of his
council wandered his piercing eyes. but
as I came within their radius they
seemed to fix and glitter into mine. I
tried hard to think that this was only
fancy. that he paid no more attention
to me than to others present, but my
instinct had not erred. Kung had ac-
cented some of his remarks especially
for my benefit.
"After he In no ambiguous language
had outlined the principal features of
this gigantic scheme some whispered
conversation took place between the
leaders, and to my gradually increas-
ing dismay I saw that their looks were
constantly centering upon me. Then
after a few preliminary remarks Kung
disclosed the part I was to play in the
conspiracy.
"The success or failure of their plans
rested upon the attitude of Lowan, the
taotai, or chief magistrate of the capi-
tal, a vigilant guardian, an incorrupti-
ble official. He had already been ap-
proached, the result of which was that
the would be corrupter was now lan-
guishing in prison. Therefore Lowan
had to be suppressed., and. to make a
very long story short, I had been cho-
sen by the council as the instrument of
its vengeance. So far. as Kung ex-
plained with rather a mischievous curl-
ing of the mouth. I thought. 1 hed not
been called upon to prove my loyalty to
the cause. Not that it was ever doubt-
ed-this he explained quite re dily-
but this was an undertaking w ch re-
quired a clear brain and a firml hand.
and the council had done me th honor
of Intrusting me with this most mpor-
tant mission.
"I listened steadily enough, t my
heart was black with rage. hat a
state my folly had brought me o. It
was one thing to give the cau my
moral support, another to go an com-
mit deliberate murder. But t e fiat

of returning to the hotel, which I al-
most dreaded to enter, I wandered
about the streets until I thought there
was time to get a reply. Then I went
back; but it was not until another hour
had elapsed that the message came for
me. Imagine my despair upon a peru-

Waring, and ran thus: "Your uncle is

-that he had done away with himself.
But on this point I need not dilate. The
coroner's jury pronounced a verdict
against some person or persons un-

Mr. Waring, who had previously re-
ceived full Instructions from my uncle
to attend to any communication I
might make, came down to Chichester,
bringing with him a telegram he had
received from Brussels which said that
my uncle had gone to the Ardennes,

a sympathetic and amiable gentleman.
and he undertook all the business in

that I made no attempt to control my
feelings, and though, like most young
fellows of my age, I already imagined

far he has eluded me. but we shall

bard as death. The easy going. retired

must not forget it."

age. I had a wholesome dread of this
yellow man with his mysterious ways.
The thought of him filled me with hor-
ror. Open enmity seemed natural
enough. a fight by daylight was a thing
to which my nature rather inclined.
but this awful underhand cunning, this
stabbing in the back, frightened me.
"But now." said I "surely, surely he
is content"
My uncle shook his head.
'Perhaps, but I doubt it. These peo-
ple pursue a vendetta to the end. They
are not content with revenge on the
culprit They exterminate the brood.
What your father did to bring this
curse upon himself and his family I
know not. but of one thing I am cer-
tain. It will not end with him."
"Will there never be an end to this
horrid state of suspense?"
"Yes." he said: "one day."
I did not like the gloomy look on his
rfce. the gloomy utterance. Neverthe-
less it sent a throb pulsating through
my fear and set the blood coursing des-
perately.
"Can we do nothing? Is there no
way of putting an end to this doubt?"
"There is but one way." he said. "and
only one. Instead of being hunted we
must turn hunters. I have tried and
failed, possibly because I do not know
the man. You, on the contrary, are
sure of him. Together we may accom-
plish what I singly have found impos-
sible. Prudence might counsel a policy*
of noninterference. You know the
adage of the wisdom of letting sleeping
dogs lie? But is this a sleeping dog or
will he sleep now that he has accom-
plished his object?"
How could I say? To me this yellow
man was the very incarnation of mys-
terious and awful death, and I feared
him as one fears a mystery which defies
solution. Child of the night, clothed in
the parent shroud, he stole secretly
from the four corners of the earth, and
no man might say whence he came or
whither he went If it was his inten-
tion still to pursue his revenge, I fear-
ed that the earth was not big enough
to hide me. For I had learned to fear
his power and dread his vengeance,.
and I no longer believed that it was
possible to escape his awful vigilance.
After the funeral we left for London
and lived at bhis old rooms in Dover
street, Piccadilly, neglecting, 1 need
scarcely say. no precaution which
would insure us against the attacks of
our mysterious assailant Then I
wrote to my father's lawyers, Messrs.

quainting them with his death and of

my uncle and I set ou- for the city and
upon our arrival thvre were imme-

The senior partner of the firm was a

extreme affability. abd after sundry
well chosen expressions of grief con-

we proceeded to business, as they say.
First of all he extracted my father's
will from a black tin box which bore
the initials "R. K." This was very
brief and to the point and bore a codi-

I became the sole heir of the aforemen-

OUR MAIL SERVICE.
The people of Florida do not yet,
in all probability, understand the-
convenience of the new mail service


now in operation between'this city
and all points in South and East
Florida. For several years we have
had an early morning mail from the
east,' but it was a through pouch from
Jacksonville, and of course only
brought such mail as had accumu-
lated there during the afternoon.
Then again it was brought up by the
conductor, who was only human,
with all the frailties of the human
family, and if, that official happened
to be overworked and sleepy when
he reached here, as was often the


case, the pouch was carried on
through and returned on the next
train.
Now, however, there is a regular
mail service, with a railway messen-
ger on the night train. He takes
mail from all trains coming into
Jacksonville in time to connect with
the Seaboard Air Line train which
rea ches here at 1 o'clock a. m. Com-
menting on this service, the Times-
Union and Citizen of last Saturday
said:
"By this means letters from the
lower portion of the State reach Tal-
lahassee from twelve to twenty-four
hours sooner, and the same schedule
is true for mail out of Tallahassee.
"This move has been long con-
templated by Chas. S. Beaver, chief
clerk of the Railway Mail Service,
who has been most active and
was finally successful in having it
adopted.
"Train No.3 is west bound, leav-
ing this city at 7:30 p. m. and reach-
ing Tallahassee at 1 a. m. Train
No. 4 is scheduled to leave Talla-
hassee at 315 a. in, reaching here at
8:45 a. min, and making connection
at this point with all trains north
and all points in Florida. The ser-
vice is one of the best in and out of
this city as it takes out of here all
the accumulated mail for all the post
offices for western Florida, and also
enables pouches to be sent through
to Leesburg, Ocala, Tavares, Waldo
and Starke, reaching all these va-
rious towns late at night or early
in the morning, giving at each point
an early mail, a condition which
heretofore has not existed.
"In addition to this early morning
delivery, the people of nearly the en-
tire State have the opportunity of
corresponding with the officials at the
State capitol early one morning, with
the knowledge that the mail will be
delivered on the following morning.
Formerly as there were no mail clerks
on No. 3, this mail arriving here dur-
ing the forenoon, in the afternoon and
evening, had to lie over at this post-
office until the following morning,
reaching Tallahassee from twelve to
eighteen hours later.
"Since the inauguration of this ser-
vice has been so timely and successful,
it is hoped that the arrangement may
prove to be a permanent one.
-There are now twenty-two trains
arriving and departing with mails.
Another improvement in the mail ser-
vice has been the putting on of a
closed pouch service on. the night
train, leaving here at 8:25 o'clock, for
Miami. The mail is made up at the
transfer clerk's room at the Union
Station, and is for all prominent
points on the east coast".

It will be seen by studying the
schedules that this city can corre-
spond with Jacksonville by mail and
receive a repdy in less than 24 hours
and vice versa, If the answering party
is prompt. All mail put in our office
now before 6 p. m. goes east at 3:15.


If the service is made permanent, the
probabilities are that our post office
will be given a night clerk, which
would enable us to mail letters up to
12 p. m. and get them off on the early
morning train. Our people should
aid Mr. Beaver in every way possible
to get the service made permanent.

ng away" that they would rather
rear some tawdry, out of date and
nferior quality and style, than to be
better dressed by the home dealers.
For instance, the other day a vis-
tor said, "beg pardon, Mrs. ,
where did you get that beautiful
gown? It's the swellest I've seen
since I have been here."
"Bought it of Mr. on the
12th street."
%'On 12th street," she cried in as-
onishment, "do you mean here, in
Miami?'
"Why yes, why not?"
"), I'm so sorry I didn't know.
It is so unsatisfactory and so expen-
sive to have to send way off for ev-
erything, but Mrs. and Mrs.
-- assured me I would never be
able to either get the material or to
have anything made that would not
be quite out of date, and so, being a
stranger, I just sent the money back
home and told them to get my old
dressmaker to do the best she could
for me. But (mournfully) of course
she never can make them hang and
fit like yours do." .
Now, the husbands of both of
these ladies, between them, supply
the merchants of Miami with several
lines of domestic supplies, and make
their living off this community.
Suppose the merchants in turn
should send away for their printing
buy only foreign papers, send to Jack
sonville for their hardware, New
York for their furniture, Savannal
for their groceries, etc, etc. This ii
really a matter for serious persona
consideration. It is not the amount
sent away by one person at one time
but tie aggregation that is lost to th
community. All estimate based ona
list of y'hat a few ladies themselves
have boasted that they sent away las
year-making due allowance for fern
nine unexactness in keeping account
-places the amount of money sen
out of Miami by them for goods tha
could have been obtained through
Miami business men at a discount o
5 per cent, at the sum of $3,846.18
This estimate, includes only such pui
chases as have been reported b
those few who sent away for shoe
dry goods and clothing, which o
course is only a fraction of the amount
really sent away. The only comfoi
that the nuerchants'can get out of th
matter is that not a single article cos
less than' they could have supplies
them for, and in a majority of case
the goo sent not only cost moi
but were pf inferior style and qualil
to those furnished their own cust

aurn. Our merchants have fortunes
invested in their stocks, and these
stocks are selected with a desire to
please the home people. They are
as fresh and up-to-date as the stocks
in much larger cities. Not a man,
woman or child but can be dressed
as handsomely, as fashionably and
as expensively or as comfortably,
substantially and as cheaply in Mi-
ami as they can anywhere else. We
are all anxious to see our town pros-
per, because our individual prosper-
ity depends on the town's but we are
not all doing our -part. It is not
enough to get up in public and ad-
vise each other to not send our
money away but to keep it at home,
while we, individually, send most of
ours away. It is useless to try and
get other industries to come here
unless we support those already
here. The Metropolis recognizes
every man's right to bestow his pa-
tronage to suit himself, but at the
same time each of us has civic du-
ties that cannot be successfully ig-
nored, since others in turn may ig-
nore their duties, too. There
is rarely a good reason for send-
ing away from home for any
kind of goods sold in Miami
Every live merchant takes pleasure
in sending to the best markets for
any article in his line which he may
not have in stock if it will oblige a
customer. Moreover, he will not
charge any more, often not as much,
as the same article would cost the
customer, quality and quantity being
the same, freight or postage included.
Few women will admit it, but all in-
telligent women know that sending
for catalogues and buying from cheap
illustrations is risky and unsatisfac-
tory business. But. notwithstanding
the fact that the money must always
be sent or sent back at the buyer's
loss when dealing with distant
houses, while the home merchant is
expected and does comply with all
reasonable and many unreasonable
demands as to credit, return, ex-
change, etc, there are women who
seem to have such a mania for "send-


buckles.
The last time that I saw him he
was in Richmond, walking down
the street leading to Trent's bridge
across the James river, where he had
a small farm-a pet affair-which
served, together with the pedestrian-
ism to which he always resorted in
those visits, as a wholesome relax-
ation from his judicial labors. On
those occasions he carried, as on the
one I mention, a flask of liquor,
which was plainly shown to tne by
its contour in one of the pockets of
his swallow-tail coat, as a treat
to those of his servants' who
had evinced faithfulness iu the dis-
charge of their duties.
In the western suburb of Rich-
mond was a fine grove, and n it a
delightful spring, known as Buahan-
an's spring. Here a suitable struc-
ture, open on all sides, with a long
table down the center, had been con-
structed, in which barbacues,ifrom
time to time, were enjoyed.: At
stated periods a club composed of
the members of the Richmond and
Henrico county bar and other promi-
nent citizens, resorted to this pleas-
ant place on Saturday, spending the
day in social communion and relax-
ati'a- anminatin in a hnihan.na t.oas-


al5o throughout our beautiful. South-'
land.
It is a matter of local pride that
out of fifty chilIren of the great
"Mother Chautauqua," the one lo-
cated at DeFuniak, is acknowledged
the most successful.
It presents the finest lists of enter-
tainments ever presented to Western
Florida. It is fitting that the Chau-
tauqua, the first held in the New
Century, should contain the best
musical attractions ever given on
any platform. The Saturdays are
especially unique, and include
the foremost glee clubs, quar-
tettes and concert accompan-
ists in the. country. The favorite
Rogers' Goshen Band, the Vander-
bilt University Glee, Banjo and Man-
dolin Clubs, consisting of twenty-
four members; the Chicago Glee
Club, the Interstate Grand Concert
Company, Oriana Belle Murphy, the
sweet Soprano of Georgia; Donna
Adair, the popular singer of Chi-
cago, and many other soloists; *nine
superb readers, impersonators and
dialect humorists; a fine list of
speakers; the most beautiful 'illus-
trated lectures, and unrivalled mov-
ing pictures, make every Saturday
worth a trip to DeFuniak.
Cheap round-trip tickets, are is-
sued from far and near, and'the Sat-
urday excursions are at the same
nominal rates as previous years.
Send to the President, Secretary
or any DeFuniak friend for a copy
of the detailed program giving the
entire seven weeks' entertainment
from February 14th to April 12th.
Resolutions of Respect
At a meeting of the Anna Jack-
son Chapter of the United Daugh-
ters of the Confederacy, held at Mrs.
W. D; Bloxham's, on January 19th,
1901, to commem rate the anniver-
sary of the birth of Gen. R. E. Lee,
and for the selection of officers, the
following resolutions were offered
and adopted:
Whereas, Since our last iassem-
blage death has claimed our oldest
member, Mrs. Sallie Smith Custis,
widow of Dr. Peter Bartow .Custis,
of the Confederate army. She died
on the 10th of July, A. D. 1900, at
Cape Charles, within two miles of
Arlington, the home of the Custis
and Lee families, to which her hus-
band belonged. She was 'also a
charter member of this chapter, be-
loved, faithful, zealous and full of
good works, and a woman of rare
ability, though from feeble health
restricted from taking her place in
the front, buC pleasant and kindly
disposed, with ever a cheerful word
for one and all.

cmniinisceces of Chief-Justice Mar-
shall
It having been suggested to me to
aote reminiscences of my early life in S
his connection, I do so, thinking that
i sketch of what I may be able to re-
call may be of interest and apropos t,
to the occasion. I suppose that most
probably, I am the only one in this t
community, and most probably in a
much wider field now alive, who
knew Chief-Justice Marshall with
some degree of personal acquain-
tance. My father, Colonel John
Grattan Gamble, was most intimate
with the old Chief, who,.as General .'
Marshall, had served with my grand-
father, Colonel Robert Gamble,
through the war of the Revolution.
In 1797 Marshall, Gerry and Pink-
ney having been sent by President
Adams as Ambassadors to France,
then under the "Directory," my
father, who had just graduated at
Princeton with the first honors of his
class, went with General Marshall as
his private secretary.
The figure of the old ohief as I
write rises before my mental vision-
his tall, slender figure clothed in the
costume of .preceding generations,
wearing his hair in a queen, a long '
grey swallow-tailed coat, short knee-
breeches, long grey stockings reach-
ing above the knee, and low-quar-
tered shoes secured with silver

CHAPTER VII
WAN~DERmn.
Notwithstanding the sensations of
the day and the novelty of my sur-
soundings I slept exceedingly well that
flght, once sleep had seized the brain.
The day had been full of wearying,
range surprises, but I possessed in
Ull the superb quality of youth. A
thousand trains might have whirled by
at express speed without arousing me;
He man with the strange eyes might
lave picked the lock with impunity.
SBut none of these things happened,
and when I finally awoke I beheld my
bkther, already dressed, sitting on the
edge of his bed watching me.
"You sleep soundly," he said.
I smiled. "Always."
"Ai easy conscience?*
"I think so."
"Sabbee." He had a way of using
add words, chiefly of the pigeon Eng-
Nah variety, which he had picked up in
*he far east Other words also. which
were pure Chinese, he used in moments
4t great excitement, but of them I
could only guess the meaning. "Do
you know," he continued. a troubled,
earnest look playing about his eyes, "I
have not slept soundly for 20 years."
"That, I suppose, 4s why you look
m pale and Ill?"
He shook his head slowly as though
balancing some matter in his mind.
"So I look pale and ill, do I? Yes, I
suppose I do, but a man is apt to think
ttle of that to which he is accustom-
ed. And I've had some cause," he
added as if speaking to himself; "I've
bad some cause."
I did not doubt him for an Instant.
Ws face, his suspicious manner, the
mdden starting at a sound, the peer-
lag at people from beneath the brows-
were these things to be associated with
a man of clean reputation? I would
aot have had my father's conscience
bOr a king's ransom.
I went below to breakfast. leaving
him in his room. He was going to
have a little of something brought to
kim, professing a dislike to crowded
public places. I thought it rather fas-
ldilous of him, but beyond that it trou-
bed me nothing. If a man wishes to
eat alone and can pay for the priv-
lege, there is nothing more to be said.
I preferred the stir of life and the view
of people.
As I lounged about the vestibule
smoking an after breakfast cigarette
eariosity led me to look at the visitors'
book, which lay open on a desk a lit-
tie to the right of the office. On the
page for that day there were already
two entries, but on the page of the
day before I failed to see my father's
name. And yet I had most assuredly
seen him advance to the book. take up
& pen and write. What he had written
I was in total ignorance of, but that he
had written something I felt perfectly
certain.
There had not been many entries that
day, only some nine or ten, but among
them there was no name resembling
ours. The two last. written in the same
hand. were "R. Martin" and "D. Mar-
tin." and I knew that these must be
the names which my father had insert-
ed. An indefinable shame seized me. I
hastily turned the page and quitted the
desk, hoping that no one was watch-i
Iag. I slunk away from the lynx eyes
of the young man in the ofltice-slunk
away in thesthadow like oneu who had
been caught doing a discreditablh
thing.
Mounting to our room. I knocked up
on the door and almost at the sam4
moment turned the handle, but to my
surprise the door was locked.
"Who's there?" cried my father.


"I."
"Oh !"
I heard him limp across the room; the
lock went back with a click. Then the
door was but partly opened, and hf
beetling brows filled up the aperture.,
"I was Just going to change," he e4-
plained in answer to my look of Intet
rogation. Probably, but the room w4
full of tobacco smoke, and a book wa
turned face open on the table.
I went to my bed and sat dowi. L*e

As I left the town the rain began to
descend with renewed vigor, but as I
ras already well saturated It did not
affect me in the least, albeit it did not
add to the cheerfulness of my sur-
oundings. Once wet a second or third
deluge mattered nothing, and I had no
fear of a cold, given the exercise of
pedaling. That was why I should
have feared to train to Chichester
even if I had had the money, which
was not the case. My father rarely
seemed to think that I might like a
killing or two in my pocket, and as a
consequence he saw. no necessity to
burden me with the dross. I believe it

for my lamp had gone out. I discover-
ed, to my dismay, that the front wheel
would not budge. Feeling in full the
horror of the situation, I succeeded aft-
er several vain attempts in lighting my
lamp. when an Investigation of the
front wheel disclosed the fact that the
fork had been twisted and that the rim
of the wheel pressed against the side.
There was nothing left now but to
run the thing on its back wheel and
trundle it before me, and this I did,
feeling my misfortune very keenly.
The rain came down in torrents, and
the road was gradually transformed
Into a series of miniature lakes. Into
which I splashed with disconcerting
regularity. But I plodded on sturdily.
and presently the lights of the town
opened up, a glad sight to the eyes of
the weary wayfarer.
Then began the trying search for a
repairer's shop, and after the shop was
found another expedition had to be
formed to go in search of the repairer.
Eventually he was run to earth in a
neighboring public house, and with a
very bad grace he consented to see
what be could do.
When I at length left Emsworth,: I
found that it was after 11 o'clock.
Save for the street lamps the town was
in complete darkness, and a melan-
choly and uninspiring sight it presented.
But I was glad to see the rain had stop-
ped, for that had seemed to make the
darkness more profound. It was, how-
ever. a melancholy outlook, and I set
forth feeling in a marked degree the in-
fluence of the night
I passed never a soul upon that drea-
ry road. Occasionally a belated light
shone dimly from a window. The trees
towered above me like gloomy phan-
toms; the wind whistled in an uncanny
manner through the hedgerows. I fan-
ciled I saw men plodding before me in
the dark: I even thought I could hear
the swish of their boots as they rose
and fell in the mud. A thousand
strange thoughts kept me company.

ing time, as it were. with the crunch

I suppose most people have experi-

quite a common thing for me to find a
verse of poetry running through my
head while my mind was deeply en-
grossed with other matters.
In this manner I carefully pursued
my way. of necessity going slowly, un-
til I came within a mile and a balf of
Chichester. Then I began to breathe
freely. The way bad seemed never end-

Consumption Threatened.

Ill.. writes: "I was troubled with a

.--:rm food and clothing, when a turn
in the road disclosed the lamps of a
carriage. I saw by a glance that it was
coming swiftly and somewhat erratic-
ally, and I at once took my proper side
of the road. Fortunately my lamp was
burning brightly. so that I had no fear
of being run down-that is, supposing
that the driver was neither mad nor
drunk.
Presently the clatter of hoofs pro-
elahined Ihabt the horses were coming at
a gallop. and I edged over still nearer
to the gutter, not that I had the least
fear of being run down,. but the bicy-
cle. bIxing the weaker vessel, always
goes to the wall. However, the advanc-
ing. carriage, nmeh to my dismay. In-
stead of drawing aside, came toward
me. and instantly I realized my Imme-
diate danger. I shouted, but my voice
was unheeded or was drowned in the
clatter of hoofs, the noise of the
wheels. Instant annihilation seemed
mine. There was no way of escaping
that dreadful rush. The great eyes of
the carriage glared into mine. I saw
the figure of a man rise up. and I heard
the crack of the whip,. as he lashed the
horses onward. Then when it seemed
as though the maddened animals must
bear me down. when I almost fancied I
could see the hoofs raised to hatter out
my brains. I suddenly swerved to the
left. drove hard on, the pedals and
found myself flying headforemost into
the ditch.
It was a desperate move. but it saved
me. A f.*w moments later the carriage
thundered over the very spot which .1
had so precipitately vacated, and as it
dashed by I caught the momentary
glimpse of a man as he leaned forward
in the glare of the lamp. It was but a
glance, inconceivably rapid, but rapid
as it was it enabled me to distinguish
the outline of the face. It was the yel-

again, and my soul was full of fear.

with intolerable conjecture. What
could it mean? I scarcely heeded
where I went, but rushed on. on

rhyme bugaing in my head like an in-

Sprang straight at Astur's face.

CHAPTER X.
CAPTAIN KINGSTON SETS SAIL FOR FOR-
EIGN PARTS.
Reaching Chichester without further
mishap, I at length drew up before the
door of our hotel, the windows of
which were in complete darkness. The
good folk had evidently retired for the
night, but a clamorous ringing of the
bell soon brought a sleepy servant on
the scene. Pushing by him, I left the
dripping machine in the ball and flew
impatiently toward the stairs, up
which I stumbled in the darkness. But
having trodden them so often I knew.
as it were. every stair by heart, and in
a few moments I was vainly endeavor-
ing to turn the handle of our room, for.
as I have already said, we always used
one room when it was impossible to get
two which were connected by a door.
I next knocked loudly and. waiting.
knocked again. Then impetuously I
shook the handle, the rattle resounding
through the quiet house. But still no
answer. "Father! Father!" I whis-
pered through the keyhole, but I might
as well have spoken to the air. No
sound, no movement. The ominous
stillness set 'me shivering painfully.
My wet clothes clung icily to my limbs.
My body was frozen, but my brain
burned like fire.
Beat Out of an Increase of His Peasion
A Mexican war veteran and promi-
nent editor writes: "Seeing the adver-
tisement of Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy, I am reminded
that as a soldier in Mexico in '47 and '48
I contracted Mexican diarrhoea and this
remedy has kept me from getting an
increase in my pervion, for on every
renewal a dose of it restores me." It is
unequalled as a quick cure for diarrhoea
and is pleasant and safe to take. For
Wale by Wight & Bro. and all medicine
dpalors.
Fearing that something was amiss
and acting upon a sudden impulse, I
hurled myself violently against the
door, and the lock gave way. For a
moment I stood upon the threshold and
called to my father once more, but re-
ceiving no reply I made my way
through the dark to the mantelpiece,
where I knew I should find the candle
and matches. Striking one. I instinc-
tively turned toward his bed. and in the
dim light created by the match I dis-
tinctly traced the outline of his figure
there. I called again, "Father!"' but he
did not move. Tremblingly I applied
the flame to the candle and then turned
to make a closer investigation.
He lay perfectly still, entirely envel-
oped in the bedclothes, and for a little
while I stood staring at him. not hav-
Ing the courage to Ulft the sheet from
his face. But the sound of footsteps
in the passage outside suddenly recall-
ed me to my senses, and with a desper-
ate movement I flung back the cover-
ing.
At first a horrid mist seemed to blur
my sight; but. quickly passing, it show-
ed me a deathly pale face with wide,
distorted eyes and a brow scared with
the purple sign of the egg. It was the
same sign as that which I had seen up-
on my mother's forehead.
With a cry of horror I turned aside
and confronted the landlord, who. can-
dle In hand. had come to Investigate
the meaning of the noise caused by my
breaking down the door.
He began to splutter, as a landlord
naturally would, but my ghastly face
arrested the outburst.
'"God in heaven!" he cried. "Have
you seen a ghost?"
I beckoned for him to advance, and
he came cautiously toward me.
"My father." I gasped, "my father
has been murdered. Look!" and I held


the light over the pale face and showed
the projecting eyes and the vivid sign.


carcely heeding the meanings of the
landlord. though I seemed to hear as
through the noise of the surf roaring
afar off his whining of the misfortne
that had befallen his house. But I
could now look on the face and think
,despite the awful coldness which en-
veloped me, the deadly weight about
the; heart, and some mention of "sui-
cide" in the landlord's lamentations
caused me to loosen the collar of the
dead man, and I saw that his neck was
encircled by a ghastly purple line. and
I thought that the fumes of ether or
chloroform rose from his beard.
The landlord saw and realized. He,
too, smelled the heavy, sickly odor of
the anaesthetic, and in a dull way he
continued to call upon the Deity. Like
most godless wretches, the name of
God was always on his tongue. And so
he wrung his hands and continued to
ask blankly what he should do.
"The police must be communicated-
with at once." I said. "though they will
never lay their hands on the man who
did this."
"Why do you say that?"
"Because I know him."
"You know him ? The landlord open-
ed his eyew-a wide, Incredulous look.
"Well. I saw him tonight. He is a
dark faced, foreign looking man of me-
dium build, with black hair and strange
little slits of eyes."
"Heavens!" cried the landlord once
again, and his florid face turned pale,

early, as he was going up to London."
"There will be no necessity to call
him. He has gone already."
No. 22 was the next room to ours. and
though the landlord instantly ran and
knocked upon the door no reply was
vouchsafled. He turned the handle on-

and found exactly what I expetc'd. It
had been opened, and though duly
closed with a care which showed the
cool callousness of the murderer it told
Its own tale. Despite' my father's wan-
derings and his precaution the enemy
had trapped him at last.
Our room was on the first floor, over-
looking the back of the premises, and
the window above mentioned led on to
a small balcony which encircled the
rear of the building. Passing out upon
this structure. I immediately made for
the window of No. 22. As I firmly an-
ticipated. It was open. but the stranger
was not in his room. nor was there any
sign of him save for the portmanteau.
which upon examination was found to
contain nothing more valuable than a
couple of pairs of wornout boots and a
piece of linen which looked like the
part of a shirt. This upon a closer ex-
amination was found to retain an odor
of the anaesthetic.
Dangling from the balcony was .a
rope. which told its own tale. To open
the gate of the back yard was evident-
ly an easy task for the murderer.
When examined in the daylight, the
lock showed no suggestion of rough
usage.
I shivered with dread as 1 contem-
.plated the future. How could I hope
to avoid the fate which had overtaken
my parents? My extermination was
the order, and my turn must come. I
might hide myself in the nethermost
parts of the earth and yet be not be-
yond the reach of these yellow fiends
and their mysterious power. No man
could have been more careful than my
father, have made more use of ingen-
lona subterfuge or rne wiles or Intelli-
gence, and yet he had succeeded in
eluding his enemy but for a few years.
What more had I to hope? A haunted
life with never a moment free of the
shadow of the Terror and then defeat
at last. Truly there seemed no peace for
me this side the grave, and I felt so de-
spondent that I cared not how soon the
end came.
But with the morning I regained
some courage, though the day broke
gray and dull and with a coldness that
touched my heart. As soon as the of-
fice opened I telegraphed to my uncle
at his lawyer's. for he, fearing that 1
might want him some day, had left in-
structions to that effect But instead

bought a bottle and to her delight found

continued its use and after taking six

The following article, written fr tho*
Brooklyn Eagle by its editor, should bo
of interest to all our readers. Too little
is known of this institution for the un-
fortunate. Mr. W. B. Hare, Superin-
tfndent of the Institute, has promised

earliest convenience.-EITORs.
This old city has very many inter-
esting sights for the northern visitor.
There is one exhibit, however, which
is probably seen by very few visitors,
yet is full of interest, and; I take the
liberty of describing it for the benefit
of people in the North who are in-
terested in the education of the un-
fortunate members of the human
family. I refer to the school for
mutes and blind, located a few miles
from St. Augustine. The school has
two departments, one for the whites,
and one for the blacks. The school
was founded in 1885, ind is sup-
ported by the exceedinglyismall au-
propriation from the Stqte of $10,-
000.00 a year. The school is poorly
equipped as to facilities fqr working,
yet it is doing a magnificent work.
It has a faithful and earnest bo 'y of
teachers, and the beneficiAlt results of
their efforts are plainly viable to the
most casual observer. The school is
greatly in need of a library. Books
sent to W. H. Carter, the Librarian,
would be very much appreciated,
and would do a vast amount of

One of the moat inter ing feat-
ures of the school is the printing
office, which is conducted by Mr.
Guy L. Bonham. Mri Bonham
is a graduate of a Northern
deaf and mute school, 'and is a
splendid example of the wonder-
ful progress whichh has been made


R.EAT. ESTATE


in receAt years in the. education
of mutes. Mr. Bonham is entirely
deaf, and while not a born mute, yet
lost his hearing at the age of three
years. He is able to converse flu-
ently, having learned the lip lan-
guage, and to anyone who was not
aware of the fact that he was deaf, it
would be impossible to detect that he
was without the sense of hearing.
Mr. Bo"ham is in charge of the
printingoffice, and au der his instruc-
tion the boys publish every mopth
the Florida School Herald, a very
creditable publication of eight Dages,
equal to many similar publications
issued by schools and colleges. Their
equipment is'very poor. having only
a small press and a few fonts of type.
They make the most, however, of the
material at hand, and succeed most-
admirable.
Mr. Bonham is quite a remarkable
young man, and is thoroughly de-
voted to his work. He has been of-
fered po-itions of trust and emolu-
ment in banks and other institutions,
but he has preferred to devote his
life to the instruction of the deaf and
mute. Mr. W. B. Hare is superin-
tendent of the school.. He ha as
head teacher Mr. W. H. Carter and
his instructors of the deaf are Miss
Bessie Blaker and Miss Nellie Tak-
lor. Miss L. B. Johnson is instructor
of the blind. Contributions, not only
of books, but of supplies for the
printing office, would be very wel-
come. People who are interested
in the education of the deaf and
mute wil find that this is a school in
which they can well afford to take
an interest. Even a subscription to
the Florida School Herald which is
only 50 tents, would be an encour-
agement:to the students and faculty.
