The contract, as most of our read

having directly accused Mr. Gage of
bad faith in taking precipitate ac-

that "ample warning would b

Status of the Hay-Pauncefote Treaty.
The British Government has re-
fused to accept the Hay-Pauncefote
treaty as amended by the Senate.
As the treaty was not in force until
ratified by the Senate it has never
existed as an agreement between the
Governments and the Clayton-Bul-
wer treaty stands as the last agree-
ment between them as tointeroceanic
canals. This treaty was made in 1850,
and provided for the encouragement
of the building of a canal through
Nicaragua, or elsewhere, connecting
the two oceans and guaranteeing its
The Hay-Pauncefote treaty was
intended to take the place of the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty, but was con-
sidered by the Senate as incomplete,
and amendments to it were proposed
for the purpose of settling questions
that it left open. One amendment
was a simple declaration that the
Clayton-Bulwer treaty had ceased to
exist. To this the British Govern-
ment objects on the ground that the
repeal of the treaty is a matter of
importance that should not be de-
cided without conference between
the two Governments and careful
consideration by each.
The Hay-Pauncefote treaty was
so worded as to bind the United
States ,if engaged in war, to permit
a hostile fleet to pass through the ca-
nal unmolested if it once succeeded
in getting within the three-league
limit. This is a promise that no na-
tion would have kept, and the
change in the treaty so as to strike
out this promise was made in the
interests of truth and fair dealing.
Another amendment strikes out
the clause in the treaty inviting
other nations to become parties to
it. No treaty limitations bound the
United States to consult any nation
except England as to the construc-
tion of this canal, and there'was no
reason why others should have been
invited to become parties.
While Great Britain refused to
accept these amendments about
which she was not consulted, they
being added by the Senate, and not
while the negotiations were pending
between the representatives of the
two Governments, it is not certain
that she would refuse to accept sub-
stantially the same propositions if
submitted to her 'by the United
States. What she would do under
such conditions is uncertain, though
it is safe to say that the Senate
amendments only provide such pre-
cautions as she would take if she
were in the position that the United
States occupies. England herself
holds the same rights as to the Suez
canal .that the Senate amendments
propose as to the Nicaragua canaL
. When the Suez canal was, construct-
ed Turkey was not bound to permit
a hostile fleet to pass through it un-
molested after it had succeeded in
getting within the three-league lim-
it Rv rmniiih n of the charun that
above all others. Now, with more
than 76,000,000 people, there is no
need to consult any other Govern-
ment. Our country is fully able to
stand alone. The conditions under
which the Clayton-Bulwertreatywas
made have changed, the reasons for
it have ceased to exist, and in abro-
gating it the United States would
only do what any other nation would
do, circumstances being the same.
England has answered. Now our
government should proceed with
arrangements for the construction of
this canal. If it should be con-
structed at all every year of delay is
a year lost. It will take a number
of years to complete it. The canal
will be as necessary in 1905 as in
1901. It is essential to the proper
growth of American industry and
American commerce, and it should
be constructed and opened with the
least possible delay.-Florida Times-

A good Autericana had been making
some soul stirring remarks about the
glorious star spangled banner when an
Englishman who is pretty well Ameri-
eanized told a little story apropos: "I
remember once to have seen the stars
and stripes applauded uproariously on
t peculiar occasion. It happened many
years ago when the British flag wasn't
as popular in the United States as it Is
now and a party of us Englishmen
were at a theater in New York consid-
erably farther down town than thea-
ters are now to be found on Broadway.
The play was 'Richard I,' and if you re-
member there is a scene in the play
where Richard, after pitting his foes
to flight in terrific style, mounts the
walls of Acre and plants the British
colors there. Evidently the manage <
ment knew the temper of the audien,
end felt that even under such circurn.
stances the British flag would not be ti
good thing, so what did they do but
give Richard the star spangled banner.
and, by all the gods. he took it with
him in the charge and planted it on
Acre's walls. It was ridiculous, of
course, and we Englishmen laughed.
but the audience took it quite as the
correct thing, and the way the people
stormed and shouted and clapped was
enough to have made Richard turn
over In his grave. Historically it was
away off, dramatically it was open to
criticism, but patriotically it was a
howling success."-Washington Star.

"Few people know." said Dr. J. C.

In which th,- bullet or foreign sub-
stance is deeply imbedded a mathemat-
ical computation is necessary to show
Just how deep the bullet is. The X
rays make the flesh transparent, leav-
ing only the bones and foreign sub-
stance visible, so that you see just
where the bullet is, and yet you don't
know where it is. You know its lat!-
tude and longitude, so to speak, but
those measurements are surface meas-
urements. and you don't known how
deep the object is beneath the surface.
The point on the surface of the body
beneath which the bullet is can be
readily located, but how far beneath
that point is the bullet?
"This is the question that trigonome-
try has to answer, and by knowing the
answer a great deal of unnecessary
cutting may be saved, and what might
otherwise be a difficult and dangerous
operation may be rendered compara-
tively safe and easy. If the bullet en-
ters one side of the body, for instance,
and lodges within an inch or two of
the skin on the other side, the other
side of the body would be the one from
which to operate."-Kansas City Jour-

Why Bees Work In Darkue a.
Bees go out all day gathering honey
and work at night in the hive. b Iding
their combs as perfectly as if a; elec-
tric light shone there all the time.
Why do thej prefer to .-work the
dark? Is often asked. Every one knows
that honey is a liquid with na solid
sugar in it. After standing it gdual-
ly assumes a crystalline apple r ce
or granulates and ultimately bx ies
a scild mass. .
Honey has been experimental. in-
closed In well corked flasks, s.4 of

while the others were exposed 7othe
light. The result was that the on
exposed to the light soon cryst l ,ed.
while that kept in the dark retraAed
Hence we see why the bees re so
careful to obscure the glass widows
which are placed in their hives The
existence of the young depends t the
liquidity of the saccharine fo! pre-
sented to them. and if light were Ilow-
ed access to this it would It a I&ob-
ability prove fatal to the inm4er of
the hive.-Weekly Bouquet.

BY DIRECT VOTE.
Referring to the resolution recent-
Ily passed by the Pennsylvania Legis-
Ilature, calling upon Congress to pro-
wide for a Constitutional Conven-
ttion with a view to adopting an
:amendment making provision for
tthe election of United States Sen-
mators by direct vote of the people, the
3New York Journal says:
'"On the 6th of last month the
.Legislature- of Pennsylvania unan-
5imously adopted a resolution re-
questing Congress to call a conven-
.tion for the purpose of proposing an
amendment to the Constitution of
ithe United States providing for the
*election of United States Senators
fby the people.
"This differs from the many other
resolutions on the subject passed by
%other State Legislatures in being
mot merely an expression of opin-
.ion, but the initiation of a legal pro-
-,cess which, if followed up, will pro-
cduce results. The House of Repre-
-sentatives at Washington has voted
if our times in favor of popular elec-
-tions of Senators, but the Senate has
invariably administered knockout
tdrops to the reform. But if two-
ithirds of the State Legislatures call
tfor a Constitutional Convention the
:Senate will have no choice. Con-
:gress will be compelled by the Con-
.stituton to call the convention.
"The Pennsylvania joint commit-
tee in its report shows that twenty-
seven State Legislatures have gone
oan record within a few years in fa-
wor of this -eform. The list in-
kcludes the Leislatures.of Arkansas,
WCalifornia, Colorado, Florida, Ida-
Tho, Indianal Illinois, Iowa, Ne-
%braska, Nevada, New Hampshire,
'North Caro'ina, North Dakota,

The superintendent of the Du-

ployes of the company to pay their

One of the greatest curses to the
business world to-day is the apparent
indifference of large institutions and
corporations to these two things-
and it is all wrong. The conduct of
an employee affects the business of
his employer, and the time is not far
distant when all of them will require
soberness and honesty of people who

In the death of ex-State Senator
Ziba King, of DeSoto county, which
occurred at his Arcadia home last
week, the State loses one of her most
active and influential citizens. He
was widely known throughout the
South as the "cattle king" of South
Florida. Many years ago, when this
section of the State was almost a
wilderness, Ziba King went exten-
sively into the stock raising business
and by perseverance and keen fore-
sight he succeeded beyond the aver-
age--amassing a fortune estimated
by his home papers at $100,000.
For years he had been quite active
iil the politics of his section, and
served with distinction in both
branches of the Legislature. A
wife, five sons and one daughter
(Mrs. E. A. Houstoue) survive.

A Pretty Weddiag.
A Chaires correspondent sent us
the following amount of the poyles-
ton-Snipes wedding, which' reached
us too late for last issue:
It was a very pretty wedding
which joined together in the holy
bonds of matrimony Mr. James Cot-
ton Boyleston and Miss Sadid Louise
Snipes, Chaires, Fla., at 8 o'clock in
the M. E. Church Thursday evening.
Long before the appointed hour
friends began to gather and the
house was filled.
The green decorations within the
church contrasted beautifully with
the pure white background. At the
chancel was a beautiful evergreen
arch, within which hung a wedding
bell of japonicas, ferns and parcis-
Precisely at 8 o'clock, the wedding
march, skillfully rendered by Mr.
Arthur Cox, was begun and the brid-
al couple entered the church from
the left entrance, marching down the
centre aisle and stood beneath the
wedding bell. They were preceded
by little Miss Myrtle Gramling as
flower girl, dressed in white and car-
rying a basket of violets and white

eean: it is with regret that I perform
the- painful duty of informing the
readers of your paper of the sad
death of Council C. Ashley, late pri-
vate CompanyF, 4th Infantry, and
a native of our home State, Florida,
also of your county.
Council C. Ashley was known
among his comrades as a brave and
faithful soldier, one who was always
ready and most willing to perform
his duties whenever called upon.
His service in the 4th U. S. In-
fantry was not the first which he
performed for his beloved country.
When the Spanish-American War
broke out in the Spring of 1898,
Council C. Ashley was among the
first young patriots in the State of
Florida to offer his services to his
This service he performed as only
a faithful solder can do, and when
mustered out of the 1st Florida Vol-
unteer Infantry, he spent a short
time with his friends, and then en-
listed, December 20, 1898, for the
4th U. S. Infantry.
When the regimental scouts were
organized Ashley was one of the men
chosen for this duty.
Recently a number of large, five-
inch shells have been brought to this
post and as they were considered
very dangerous in their original con-
dition, several men were detailed to
extract the powder from them and
by so doing render them harmless.
Ashley was one of the number de-
tailed for this work, and it was
while performing this duty that the
horrible accident occurred which one
day later caused his death.
One of the huge shells exploded,
and Ashley received a number of
wounds, wounds which mangled his
body and wounds from which he
could not recover. All that could
be done for a faithful soldier was
done for him, but all efforts were
fruitless, and at exactly 3.50 p. m.,
, January 23, 1901, another of Amer-
ica's faithful servants was called to
his last resting place.
His loss will be felt by all of us
and long will we remember him.
Ilis parents and friends in far away
. Florida have the sincere sympathy
" of the entire company and especially
- of his devoted friend.

Story of a Slave.
To be bound hand and foot for years
by the chains of disease is the worst
form of slavery. George W. Williams,
of Manchester, Mich., tells how such a
slave was made free. He says: "My
wife has been so helpless for five years
that she could not turn over in bed
alone. After using two bottles of Elec-
tric Bitters, she is wonderfully improved
and able to do her own work." This
supreme remedy for female diseases
quickly cures nervousness, sleepessness,
melancholy, headache, backache, faint-
ing and dizzy spells. This mirascle-
working medicine is a godsend to weak,
sickly, run down people. Every bottle
gwnteed Only 50 cents. Sold by

those persons who seem to know ev-

and, seeing that we fell readily into
his wishes, informed us that on the
morrow the Foochow would sail for
Shanghai and advised a passage by
her. Knowing no reason why we
should delay our departure, we at once
accepted this proposal, and Jim there
and then handed the carpenter suffi
cent money to enable him to purchase
a few necessaries and his passage.
Then, overwhelmed with thanks and
compliments, we were shown down
stairs and out through the shop, and
thankful I was to taste again the com-
paratively fresh air of the street.
"Tomorrow," said Koon-Si as he
peered up. blinking, from his cellar,
"we shall meet on board the Foo.

down the narrow street, and as we
reached the bottom we ha.tfted for ~

Jim hesitated for a moment, and I
saw by his face that the question. put
him on his guard. He fixed Mr. Yon
with a.keen look, but the imperturbable
Chinkmnan bore the scrutiny with an in-
difference which was most reassuring.

should lose the valuable series of

cleared a way for us whenever our
progress was liable to receive a cheek
from the masses of people which chok-
ed the streets.
At length we left the worst part of
the native quarter behind, and as Ah
Yon still continued to pace ahead my
uncle and I busied ourselves with dis-
cussing the remarkable carpenter,
"He's not exactly the sort of fellow
I should choose for a traveling com-
panion," said Jim, "but I'm glad we
met him. It is evident that without his
;id there would not be the remotest
possibility of our ever coming in con-
tact with Kung-that is, unless he were
to seek us."
"Instead of which we seek him. But
tell me, Jim, if by any chance Kung
falls into our power-what then?"
I asked this question, apparently so
superfluous, because hitherto our
threats of vengeance had been of an in-
definite kind. or at least mine had. for
I was not one who could contemplate
murder with any equanimity. My plan
was to seize Kung and hand him over
to the government. There would be
nothing more for me to fear or to do
As I spoke Jim swung around and
laid a heavy hand on my shoulder. His
blue eyes sought mine, and they were
hard, cold, repellent.
"I shall kill him."
Never was a man more in earnest.
The bitterness of years was crowded
Into that moment. There was no hesi-
tation here, no doubt I knew now that
the easy going city man, who had hith-
erto concocted nothing more deadly
than an Ingenious piece of reasoning in
the shape of a prospectus, had gone
about for years with murder in his
heart. I saw it now as I had never seen
it before, and though I could not gain-
say the frightful justice of the contem-
plated act, 1 would have given much
not to have seen that awful look in my
Farther on we stopped again to
watch the shipping in the bay, the
landing of some square boxes from a
launch also receiving a little of our at-
tention. Ah Yon, seeing this, drew
"You no sabbee what belong inside?
"It well bad for poor plecee China-
man. It allee same belong opium.
Welly fine t'ing for trade, you sabbee,
but no well good for Chinaman. That

. "So I've heard," said Jim. "Where
has this lot come from?'
"India. Englishyman make glow,
you sabbee; collupt poor Chinaman. It
come by ship Foochow," and he point-
ed to a long, low steamer with one fun-
nel which lay at her buoy some little
way out in the stream.
"So, so," said Jim, who, like myself,
had immediately turned to inspect the
vessel, "that's the Foochow, is it?"
"Yes, cap'n. She comes from Calcut-
ta thlee day ago. Tomollow she make
We watched the ship for a few min-
utes longer and then passed on, while
Yon, who had taken It tor granted that
we were In need of his company, kept
beside us and pointed out this and that
object of interest and expatiated on
matters in general with an uncommon
ability. Presently Jim stopped and
beckoned to him closer.
"Tell me. Have you ever been in
Yon hesitated a moment, and a cur*i-
ous. searching look crept into his little
black eyes. Then he smiled. It was a
pleasant smile, but somewhat oily and

"Do you know it well?"

was something that concerned him on-
ly. We were quite satisfied that our
confidence had not been misplaced.
The journey northward proved en-
tirely barren of incident, and in due
course of time we arrived at Shanghai
Here, that very night, Ah Yon brought
my uncle a letter, which, he said, had
been left at the hotel by a messenger
and which upon opening we found was
a communication from Koon-SL It
was very short and very untidy, but it
conveyed the Information that the
steamer-Chungking would leave early
on the following morning for Hankow,
and it advised a passage by the same,
adding: "It is my intention to go by
this ship, for not a moment should be
lost In the pursuit of our mission. He
strikes twice who strikes first."
That it was excellent advice and
backed up by an excellent maxim and
one for which I duly notched a point in
favor of Mr. Koon-Sl, may be at once
admitted, and I could discover no rea-
son why such excellent advice should
not be followed up. Nor could my un-
cle, when put tq. the test, though he
needed no spur to his endeavor. His
one object In lite was to stand face to

fellow. "Yon. he belong first chop
I could not help smiling at this quaint
eulogy of self. The rascal had a Ce-
lestial sense of humor.
RE STRIKES TWIE WHO ThiKES FIRST.
Upon our return to the hotel we made
a few necessary inquiries concerning
Mr. Yon more Is a Pop to our con-
sciences than aught else, for so that he
proved not an absolute scamp we cared
little for his reputation. For the work
we had in hand intelligence and nerve
were of more iniportance than a good
character. That he had the one we did
not doubt, that he possessed the other
time alone would show. At all events
we were not long in deciding to take
him with us. This Journey we contem-
plated was a strange one, and out of it
much might come.
The following morn ing he presented
himself at the hotel and was duly en-
gaged, and later on in the day we. went
off together to join the Foochow. Yon,
who held the proud position of our boy,
took advantage of that privilege and
carried our things below and otherwise
displayed a conspicuous ability to
please. Then there followed the shriek
of the whistle, a warning to imprudent
sampans, the shouting and the bustle,
and presently the Foochow stood up

through which we Lad entered not a

almost fancied I could hear the walling

With an exclamation of anger I shook
the cold claw from me and drew back
a pace. Mr. Koon-Si smiled, and I was
fearful lest he should understand the

"Excellency, the future is In the

I should say them yea or nay?"
"My worthy Koon-Si, the future is
also somewhat in our hands. How

"Nay. excellency, I know not. It
may be even as you say; the gods move

I would spit in the face of Kung."
"First meet him, my illustrious car-

slipped from our side and disappeared
in the gloom, and friend as he was, and
avenger, too, -I was glad that he had
gone. But I felt to the full our impo-
tence and the 'horror of being depend-

was like a bad exhalation of the night,
and 1 almost wished that he would dis-

At daybreak of the following morn-

"cordance with' our prearranged plan
followed the worthy carpenter from
the ship, our invaluable Ah You bring-

suddenly branched off to the left, and
presently we found ourselves before a
house, upon the door of which the car

and I saw our guide give two or three
uneasy glances over his shoulder ai

HIS FIRST RECOGNITION.
1%.o trawmi Point Is the Career ef
The first reading of "The Scarlet
Letter" has been told In T. W. Hig-
ginson's book of essays, "Contempo-
raries." The reading was given to
the author's dearest critic, his wife.
During the entire winter when he was
at work upon the book he seemed op.
premssd by some secret anxiety.
"There was a knot in his forehead
a the time.4 said Mrs. Hawthorne.
Finally one evening he went to her
and said that he had written something
which he would like to read aloud.

The next day the manuscript was de.
slivered to the publisher, and,. on the
following morning. Mr., fn es T. Felds,
the publisher, appeared "t the author's
door. When he was a dmitedlhe caught
the little boy of the family In his arms
and asked, "You splendid little fellow.
do you know what a father you have?"
He, had sat up all nigM t to read the
manuscript and had ppsted out to
Salqm In the early morning. After his
interview with the publisher Haw-
thorne came down stairs with a firm
step and walked about, .his face llu-
mined by new hope and vigor. The
world had found him ant Recownitlnoa
was at the door.
"See here!" exclaim'edhe shopper,
excitedly, "there's a ma ..aust dropped
dead in that bargain crus_'' ..
"How inopportune!" cried the floor-
walker. "We have pot 'yet opened our
