message to a brother officer, whom he
as. selected to represent him in
Vashington on this occasion, he has
requested that both Sampson and he

Work to Commence To-morrow on
Former- Latter Changes Hands.

Mr. Wfllagis, the President of the
Georgia Pine R. IL., is daily expected
to arrive in this city-to give out
the contracts for the work on the
Georgia Pine R. R., between this
place and Bainbridge.
Mr. Brutor, of Bainbridge, a prom-
inent official of the Georuia Pine R.
R, together with Mr. Wright of M1a-
con, Ga., and Mr. flardaway of Ala-
bama, railroad contractors, have
been in the city several days waiting
to see Mr. Williams-and as soon as
he arrives we confidently Jook for
the contract to be signed at once' and4
for the work to be then vigorously
pushed forward to completion.
Grading will be begun March 1st,
near the acre tract bought of Mr. Woodward,
and donated to the company.
A rumor is current on the streets
to the effect that the Tallahas-
see South Eastern has changed
hands, Mr. Bennett selling out his
interest. The new owners have
ample capital to push the road and
will do so at once. In fact, this they
are compelled to do or lose their
charter and land grants, for the last
Legislature only extended the
charter under the agreement that
the road would be completed as far
as the Suwannee river by June 1st,
of the present year.

An Animated PareeL
Duncan Ross, the Scotch athlete.
brought to New York with him some
years ago a valuable bull terrier, fa-
mous for the blue ribbons he had won
in India. Mr. Ross lived across the
Harlem river, but his business took
him daily to the lower part of New
York. Invariably he was accompanied
to his office by the bull terrier. As it
was known that he always came down
town on the elevated railroad, his
friends wondered, knowing the embar-
go placed upon dogs, how he procured
transit for the bull terrier.
Their repeated questioning finally
persuaded himr to reveal the secret, and
he invited them all to the office one
evening just as he was starting for
home. He took out of his desk a stout
piece of wrapping paper and. opening
it out flat spread it on the floor. Then
he whistled to the dog. and the bull
terrier walked to the center of the pa-
per and curled up in a limp lump. Mr.
Ross then produced a piece of stout
cord and made a very neat parcel of
his pet and tucked it under his arm.
"I have carried this parcel up and
down town for two years." he said.
"and no one has ever had the faintest
suspicion of its animated contents.
Clive is so well trained that he never
makes a sound or moves a muscle. I
leave a little opening at one end of the
package, so that he has plenty of air."
The Cagle and the Turkey.
The turkey is our great national bird
instead of the eagle. which I don't take
much stock in. Turkeys are good to
eat. Eagles are only fit to put as
stamps on coin. The eagle is a raven-
ous. vicious thief. There is nothing
brave or good about the eagle. The
eagle cannot be tamed and is of no
earthly use to any one anywhere at
any time or place. A hawk is braver
than the eagle. If the eagle bad the
courage in proportion to his size of the
sparrow, he would be a wonder.
It was a mistake-a rad. pitiful blun-
der-to make the eagle our national

CloArrakf SMOKING.
A patron of our public schools has
recently, called the attention of the
TALLAHAiSABEAN to the cigarette
habit, and its almost universal pre-
valence among the small boys in this
city who attend the public schools.
The patron in question found the
cigarette habit pretty well established
with his own progeny and very sen-
sibly adopted drastic measures to
uproot it, or rather eradicate it. But
he thinks that if the teachers devoted
more time to teaching the dangers
that lurk in the cigarette it might
have'a more satisfactory effect. This
is the view of a modest man, who
looks for better results from the
teachings of others than from the in-
structions he imparts to his own
children, perhaps.
The TALLAHASSEAN is strongly
inclined to the belief that through
the co-operation of the parents and
teachers much good can be accom-
plished in the desired direction,
whereas neither one nor the other
might be able to do as much
alone. It is the duty of every parent
during the evening talks around the
fireside, as well as by their own ex-
emplary lives, to impart a knowledge
of the right from the wrong to the
little ones gathered there. Then
when they get to school, if the same
things are told them in the "Class
room talks" so common in the
schools and colleges, it puts them to
thinking, and the beneficial results
may be lasting. It isthe deliberate
opinion of the TALLAHASSEEAN, that
in this way more real good can be
accomplished than by all the anti-
cigarette smoking literature that
could be printed. The parents cer-
tainly have more at stake, but the
teacher in this way can be made a
valuable lieutenant, and we believe
that all of them would willingly enlist
for duty if approached by the pa-
A circular letter from Secretary
Applevard, announces that the date
for holding the 1901 session of the
Florida Press Association, has been
settled upon and March 20-23
named. The association will be held
at Miami, and promises to be one of
the most interesting in the history
of the organization. Everything
points to a very large attendance,
too, says the Secretary. One thing
is certain, viz: Editor Tatum, of the
Metropolis, and his able and very ex-
cellent assistant, Miss Nellie E. Beck,
will do all that lies in their power to
make every one have a good time.
The Royal Palm hotel will be head-
quarters for the Association, and will
be prepared to'take care of all mem-
bels who desire to stop there, at
$2.50 per day. Many of the mem-
bers of the Association will remem-
ber the excellent treatment tLhey re-
ceived at the Royal Palm en route

and will take advantage of this low

rate to again become guests of that

her by the arm as if .to support her,
when, to my surprise and delight, I
found that she was treading water.
"You can swim ?" I gaspe,
"Yes," she answered.
"Good! Courage!"
I turned to look after the ship; but,
save for its lights, it was invisible, and
those I could only see as I rose on the
crest of a wave, for, though viewed
from the high decks of a big liner, the
sea that night was nothing terrifying,
it was a dreadful chaos of waters when
one was down in It.
The brave girl by my side never
muMurmed, and, though it was too dark
for me to see her face, I thought that
the light from the white, curling tips
of the waves caught the glow of her
eyes, and in them I seemed to see the

A Convincing Answer.
"I hobbled into Mr. Blackmon's drug
store one evening," iays Wesley Nelson,
of Hamilton, Ga., "and he. asked me to
try 'hamberlain's Pain Balm for rheu-
matism with which I had suffered for a
long time. I told him I had no faith in
any medicine as they all failed. He
said: 'Well if (hamberlain's Pain Balm
does not !help you you need not pay for
it.' I took a bottle of it home and used
it according to the directions and in one
week I was cured, and have not since
been troubled with rheumatism." Sold
by Wight & Bro. and all medicine deal-

ter some arstance to the right of us.
For the moment I scarcely remember-
ed that ships nowadays use buoys with
a flare attached to them and that these
things, thrown into the sea, burn
brightly and act as a beacon to those in
the water and to those on board. I
felt overjoyed, for-ft proved that my
cry had been heard and meant that if
we could only keep afloat we should

sionally as We rose on the. crest of a
wave-I could see it burning brightly in
spite of the water that dashed about it
and all over it. But it was terrible
work attempting to swim in such a sea,
and, realizing this, I quickly divested
myself of everything but a pair of
trousers.' Foreseeing what was to

tinted the object with its glow, and a
mpdden thrill of happiness put new life
nto my lrogd muscy enfeebles. It was no

With a few strokes I had reached It,
and though the sea tried to tear it from

had no fear now, and my eyes stung
with something more than sea water
as I looked up at the great lights and
thought of the branye hearts and the
willing hands which were coming to

my rescue.
Miss Hurst during all this time re-
masuched unconscious.but I had no great
difewer :ulty in keepinoug her head above
water, for with the new hope had come
a new strength, and I already looked
upon the whirling mass of dark seI
around me as a monster who had bees stung

said. "We have many nervous people

the door of the cabin.
"Mr. Gray." sh said. and the false
name struck me as contemptible under
Oseh conditions. "I thank you with all
my- heart. My daughter Is all the
world to me. anq you have brought her
back from the grave. God blues youF"
She drew me to her and kissed me on
the forehead. and I was seized with a
great longing to throw my arms about
her and kiss her as I would have kiss-
ed my own mother. But I drew back.
mumbling stupidly that it was nothing.
that she was to think It nothing I had
done. that I was glad I had been of
ervice-a mixture the Idiocy of which
appealed to me even In the midst of-
my embsahwtuent. for eumrbaeaeod I
was. and deeply. for over the mother's
shoulder two. great gray eyes set in a
sweet, pale face were watching me
from the top berth. People had spo-

thblag to do, but I certainly hadn't the
courage to face the wide. Inquirleg
eyes of this delicate girl.
S"Mr. Gray." she said. "I hope you do
not think me unkind or remiss. I want-
ed to send for you before, but I am
supposed to be under the doctor's or-
dera. though why I can't Imagine. Be-
lieve me, I am perfectly well but be

Let me thank you now."
She held out her wee white hand.
which I pressed with a nervous clasp.
and I looked into her face. right Into
her eyes. and I knew that this pale girl
held my destiny in her hands.
"Don't thank me," I mumbled

"Don't say anything more about it. It
is enough for me to know that I have
been of service to you."
"And It is enough for me to know,"
she repeated slowly, a world of mean-
Ing In her look and tone. "that you
have saved my life."
"I am glad." I said.
"And I" she answered in a low voice.
I looked her straight in the eyes. and
she returned the look frankly, without
flinching. dnd I believe we each strove
to read the deeper thoughts that lay
behind. To me she seemed a living
piece of pale perfection, for whom I
would have leaped into 50 raging seas
or the deadly maelstrom itself.
The doctor appearing at that moment
and cautioning me not to excite his
patient, we talked but a little while
longer, and as I shook hands with her
she said. "I suppose you are going
"It is very probable."
"You will be careful?" There was al-
most a tone of entreaty in her voice.
"I promise you."
They were only little.common words.
but they were full of meaning. I knew
now that there was some one who took
more than a passing interest in me.
Well. nothing of any moment hap-
pened at Colombo. and the next day
when we were well at sea once more

Miss Hurst came up on deck and duly
received the congratulations of the pas-
sengers. Naturally people expected to
see me monopolize the greater part of
her time. but in this I think they were
disappointed. Indeed I purposely kept
aloof from her,. though it might have
been an act of charity if I had stood by
to warn off some of the more foolish
people However. In the afternoon she
sent for me to come and take tea with
her and her mother in their cabin. and
my reply to the invitation, which was
as delightful as it was unexpected. was
a hasty brush up and a flurried appear-
ance. I thought it-hard that poor old
Jim should have been left out in the
cold. and I apologized to him before
going: but, dear old fellow, he never
looked for the slight and consequently
failed to find it. Moreover, they had
not seen much of him, and they were
quite Ignorant of the fact that Mr.
George Carter was the u cle of Mr.
Frederick Gray, who w- .not Mr.

I was received with the utmost cour-
tesy by the widow and her daughter,
and though we strove hard to talk of
many things I knew we were rigidly
eschewing that subject which of all
others Was the most unt-resting. In-
deed during my previous visit to this
cabin I had been struck by the fact
that neither mother nor daughter had
referred in any way to the assailant or
the sttemOted murder, but instead In-
dulged in vague reneralities, as though
the lamentable occurrence had bee"
the result merely of accident. From a
perhaps mistaken sense of modesty I
also refrained from directly broachlnr
the subject, but at the time thought
it strange, and I almost thought it
s**anger now
We solempuly drank our tea and wrnde
a pretense of eating biscuits, but all
the time there was a feelin' in the air
of an ImpendLng outbreak, and present-
ly it came.

what this danger was which seemed to

"You know?"
Both women uttered the exclamation
in the selfsame breath, and as I looked
at their white, scared faces I saw that
the Terror had as strong a grip upon
them as It had upon my father In his
worst days.
"Yes., I know. The mark upon his
forehead was that of the Society of the
Hidden Meaning."
The ladies rose panting from the set-
tee and confronted me with faces
which were now ghostly In their pallor.
"How do you know? How do you
"I1 will tenl you. I saw It once upod
my mother's forehead. I saw it later
upon my father's. It would have been
seen upon mine long before this but
for the love of Providence. It Is called
the writing of Kung and is the symbol
of death."
"How do you know? Who are you?"
The girl pronounced these words
tremblingly and yet defiantly, as
though even I were not above suspi-
cion. I thought though it might have
been only my fancy, that she even. per-
haps unconsciously, crept nearer the
door. Certainly she eyed me in a way
that was anything but complimentary.
Her mother,' poor soul sat pale and
trembling, too much amazed to speak.
"I will tell you. My name Is not Gray
at all, but Kingston. and I changed it
for precisely the same reason that you
changed yours. I look upon myself as
a marked man. and I fear that if any
one heard my name he might remem-
ber the great Windsor mystery or the
Chichester outrage. They killed my
mother first, then my father, and they
have followed me with a like intent ev-
er since. That is why I am here aboard
this ship under a false name."

men led strange lives in those outposts

when the latter asked an explanation
>f the absence of his p)ut barber.
"Wihy ?"
"Well, he Insisted on raising whisk-
"Raising whisk ers? Great Scott!
isn't this a free country, where a man
may raise whiskers if he so chooses?"
"Yes, this is a free country, and a
man can do pretty much as he likes,
but there's one thing lie can't do and
work fo: me, and that's it."
"Why do you object ?
"For three reasons. The first Is that
he was a rather cross looking fellow
anyway. Whiskers would make him
look crosser. In the second place, to
raise whiskers it would be necessary
for him to look like a Weary Willie
for two or three weeks. In the third
place--and this is reason enough, even
If there were no other-if he should
succeed In raising a good looking
beard, he would set an example that
might be followed by some customers.
The result would be that instead of
getting shaved three or four times a
week, or even every day. they wou!d
content themselves with getting their
whik.ers triummn d once a fortnight or
once a week. Such a move would seri-
ously affect the cash box and for that
reason is not to be tolerated.
