probably no school in Floriua has
made greater progress, rigidly ad-
hering to its standard of scholarship
and deportment itquired of its stu-
dents, or has revered more practi-
cal and real benifit to the students
who have placed *themselves within
reach of its advantages than this
State College. The Institution does
not however arrogate to. itself that
greater good has been done here for
the Florida youth than that accom-
plished by other (State Institutions.
But facts justify the statement that
this -Seminary hasi, with less money
per capital, and with unequal -advan-
tages in other particulars, main-
tained a greater average of attend-
ance, and, possibly, with one ex-
ception a larger enrollment than
any other State school can claim.
The figures upon whica this statement
is base,. do not include pupils of prim-
ary grades.
In the sub-collegiate department
the age and status of scholarship are
as advanced as the same in the pre-
paratory classes of the other State
Colleges. No one is admitted who is
under twelve years of age, and he
must be able to read, write and spell,
must know elementary arithmetic ana
higher arithmetic through fractions. U.
S. history, political geography and the
elements of English grammar. When
admitted, the pupil must pass through
three years of hard study to be fitted
for the collegiate courses, which ex-.
tend over four academic years. Dur-
ing the three years of sub-collegiate
study the pupil is carefully taught
and drilled in subjects of a practical
nature, for it is here recognized that
many do not go on through the col-
legiate courses to the degrees. Many,
even a very large proportion of the
youth of the country, do not go even
beyond the higher interniediate
grades. More soften this is tor rea-
a?-beyo"d tht eir a ditldBH'
And so the Seminary takes upon It-
self, at no extra expense to the State,
the burdens of a high school depart-
ment. Here the students are taught
English Grammar, Rhetoric and Lit-
erature, Business and Higher Arith-
metic, Algebra, Elementary Geome-
try, Bookkeeping and Commercial
Law, Civil Government, Elementary
Physics and Chemistry, Physiology
and Hygiene, Botany, Physical and
Political Geography, History and
Latin including two books of Caesar.
In many places the commercial
courses form the only curriculum or
is set off in a department of its own.
Here the course is affiliated with
the general curriculum of the High
School; and in one year, by this ar-
rangement, one is well fitted to keep
a correct set of books in ordinary
Thus it may be seen that the sub-
collegiate classes are somewhat com-
plete in themselves affording, as they
tuo, a well rounded, fairly good En-
glish education. Those who
complete the course are enabled to
pass a first grade teacher's examina-
tion; and many have gone from this
department into the work of instruc-
tion and are succeeding as teachers.
Others have entered business and are
giving satisfaction to their patrons.
Speaking of the collegiate depart-
ment, the word Seminary in the title
has caused many strangers to think
tihat only the work of an institution
between the high school and the col-
lege is done here. This is an error
from which the Institution has uf-
fered in many ways, besides, by rea-
son of it, the State does not havy;
credit abroad for having this really
high grade college within its bound-
aries. the Seminary was the acad-
emic department of the Univer-sty of
Slorida a:id even prior to thit time,
liberal college co-uirs's have been of-
fered. (- d(i the Institution can par-
dor: i:. ,.;ast of its graduates who
have taken high rank in society and
State, and of those who, having large-
ly been trained within its wall, .l-
cupy useful and important positions
in life.
But the present curriculum is
based upon such as that of Amherst.
or Bowdoin in the East. or that Cf
Wofford, Emory, or the University 'of
Tennessee in the South. To jiutify
such comparison it might be stated
that the graduates of the -Seminary,
upon presentation of their dip omas,
are admitted without examination t
the senior class of Boston ITnivers-
Iy-and this year one of the graduates
of the class of 1900 was admitted with-
out examination to the medical depart-
ment of Johns Hopkins University
-the same condition under whica
the graduates of the highest and
most renutable colleges are admitted.

The enrollment in 1896-97 was 122
students from eight Florida counties;
in 1897-98, 144 students from ten
counties were enrolled; 1898-99, 177
students from sixteen counties of the
State were in regular attendance;
and the'session 213 students from twen-
ty-one counties, and three States are
matriculated. The scientific course
has been established and the B. S.
degree added to those regularly con-
ferred by the college. This course led
to the establishment of a Biological
and Physiological laboratory second
to none in the State. Six courses in
Biology are required, and six option-
al. The purpose of the course is to fit
students for teaching science in the
high schools of the State, and for
successful pursuits of the science of
medicine and pharmacy.
The chemical laboratory has been
enlarged, and four courses in Chem-
istry are required and four are elec-
tive. The Physical laboratory has
been better supplied with fine appa-
ratus, and three courses in Physics
are required, and four are mad6 op-
tional. The Geological Museum has

Last spring a Normal department
was Inaugurated. Forty teachers
from sixteen counties were enrolled.
This spring the Board re-opened this
department with forty teachers pres-

ida counties have matriculated, of
these about .22 are from this (Leon)
county. Seventy are now in regular
at, is self-evident that this Normal
feature is a most successful and
helpful department, and in attend-
ance, surpasses that of any other
school in the State. Its record speaks
for itself. Ninetyfive per cent. of
those who attended the Normal last
year secured the certificate for which
they applied, and as a rule occupy
better positions this year than those
Formerly held by them.
The teachers are instructed by
each member of the regular Semi-
nary faculty, including eight special-
ists in their respective lines. Every
effort zs put forth to aid the teachers,
not only in branches upon which
they are examined, but are also thor-
oughly drilled in the latest theories
of education and the most approved
methods of instruction-advantages
which are not afforded at the usual
summer schools. Then, too, one of
mtne principal causes of Lie great pop-
ularity of the Normal department.
besidess its high grade of instruction
and fine facilities, is the fact that the
Seminary excells in low rates, i. e,
it gives more and better instruction
-for the amount of expenditure per
capita-the cost being from ten to
twelve dollars per month. Over three
months of Normal instruction here
costs the teachers no more than two
months of such instruction at other
-In reference to the progress of the
Seminary Senator Carson, in his ad-
dress before the students a few days
ago, said that he visited the institu-
tion four years ago. He was then
member from the Senate of the joint
committee to visit State Institutions.
He said "I congratulate the students
before me on the ogressss that this
Institution has made since that
time." "I am '-:d." said he "to note
this, for we must not retrograde. Our

Washington, D. C., March 15.-Rice
is the principal cereal product of the
South Attantic and Guit States. Its
cultivation began first in South Caro-
.,na and Georgia nearly two hundred
years ago. Wiuhin the last decade
Louisiana and Texas have engaged
in growing rice on a very large scale,
and to-day these States furnish
nearly three-fourths of all the pr
uct of the country. .
Recognizing the important
agricultura l proft, *Vr*
fornls tne principal food of one-hall
of tue population of the earth, the Di-
vision of Agriculture CL the Twelfth
Census is making a special effort to
collect and tabulate important data
rela.-ng to rice, ana the various
methods of irrigation which are prac-
ticed in its cultivation on the delta
lands and inland marshes of South
Carolina and Georgia, the alluvial
lands of Louisiana, Mississippi, and
other States, and the broad prairies
oL southeastern Texas and south-
western ouisiana.
The schedule now being mailed to
the rice planters contains a number
of important questions covering
methods, costs, etc. From the data
thus collected together with the statis-
tics gathered by the census enuimera-
tors, it is hoped to compile a bulletin
which -will comprehensively show
the extent and value of the irrigation
plants, acreage cultivated under
them, the many other important facts
connected with this .ndustry.
As the volume and value of these
statistics will depend upon the inter-
est shown in the inquiries by those
engaged in the cultivation of rice,
the Director earnestly requests that
all to whom the schedules are ad-
aressed will make prompt and care-
ful reply.
Owners of plantations and secre-
taries of companies who do not re-
ceive the inquiries within a reasona-
i .e time are requested to write to L.
G. Powers, Chief Statistician in
charge of Agriculture, Census office,
Washington, D. C., and blanks will
be mailed to them at once.
A comprehensive compilation of
the facts relating to this rapidly
growing branch of agriculture will
have no small influence on the future

On the first page of this issue of
the TAILAHASSEEAN is enumerated
Iome of the results accomplished by,
and the present needs of the Sem-
mary West of the Suwannee River-
better known as the West Florida
Seminary. As will be seen by ref-
eMnce to the article mentioned, this
institution is doing a great work, ac-
complishing much good in the edu-
cational field, and is capable of more
than doubling its usefulness, if the
State will only supply the funds nec-
Only a few days ago the Legisla-
ture appropriated $2,500 for a gym-
masuin at the Florida Agricultural
College-that being to supplement
the donation of the' public spirited
Flagler, of the East Coast, for the
same .purpose-and the act was
applauded by many as the proper
thing'to do.
The late Judge Westcott be-
queathed quite a handsome sum to
the West Florida Seminary, but he
failed to make it a condition that the
State should appropriate an equal
.sumin order to get thii endowment.
As a consequence Legislatures pre-
ceding this have been stingy with
their appropriations and the institu.
fion has all alog been cramped for
This is a condition that should not
exist. The West Florida Seminary
is one of the really meritorious
educational institutions in the
State, and the benevolence
of the late lamented Wescott should
be supplemented by a State afppro-
priation large enough to secure dorm-
itories for the school and provide all
1he other things necessary for carry-
ing on the great work the institution
Ias undertaken. It is confidently
loped that the members of the pres-
ent Legislature will recognize the
.-wisdom of supplying these iecessi-
ties, and govern themselves accord-
YFor several weeks preceding the
:assembling of the Legislature there
were rumors and counter rumors
.concerning the leasing of the con-
wicts held in the custody of the State
authoritiess. It was but natural,
therefore, that the Legislature should
take the matter up and insist upon
;an investigation. Had it failed to

-do so the

consequence would

have been an almost universal con-
-demnation of the members thereof
-for direliction of a duty which
seemed imperative to those into
-whose ears these various rumors
lad been poured.
That mistakes have been made in
,the management of the matter there
is no room to doubt. But that ad-
vantages will accrue from the muddle
into which it has fallen if the con -
wicts are leased, is equally as evident.
For instance, the Board of State In-
stitution., in submitting to the Legis-
lature a record of their doings rela-
tive to the leasing of the State con-
.victs, for the nextfour years, says:
"In 1893, all the State prisoners
were leased for $21,000 per annum.
In 1897, all the State prisoners-were
eased for $21,000 per annum."

"In response to the said published
notice that Commissioner of Agri-
culture reports the he has received
and now has in his custody fourteen
sealed, separate bids that have not
been opened purporting to be in
compliance with the terms of said
aloice and conpiring certified checks
as required therein.
"It is the opinion of the Board that
leases made under the terms of the
published notice at not less than
4180.00 per capital per annum will
Shield an average of of $180,000 per

Mr. Palmer of 14th introduced the
following: "We, the undersigned wo-
men ol the State of Florida, responding
to the action by the State Federation of
Women's Clubs. January 31, 1901, and
realizing that the laws of Florida do not
offer that protection to women which
good morals and justice demand, hereby
memorialize and petition that the age
of protection for girls te raised to that
time-when they are no longer infants in
the eye of the law; viz: tighten years,
and that the Legislation on this subject
be carefully considered and reformed? by
Mr. MacWilliams introduced the fol-
lowing: "We, the un8ersigned, believ-
ing that the foundation of education
must be laid in early childhood, before
the school age as now fixed by law in

that a school wherein children at an

Write A. 0. MacDonell, A. G. P. A.,
Jacksonville, Fla., for information re-
garding schedules and sleeping car res-

yesterday,by introducing a measure
providing for the annexation of the
State of Alabama to West Florida
"with the consent of the Legislature
of Alabama and the Congress of the
United States." Of course the meas-
ure was tabled at once, but it has
served to renew the talk about the
Alabama scheme to annex West
Florida, and the fact is developed
that West Floridians regard that
proposition as a collosal joke. They
are perfectly satisfied where they
are, they declare, and do not want to
be annexed to Alabama or any other
State in the Union.
Commenting on the subject last
night to the editor of the TALLA-
HASSEEAN, a prominent resident of
Pensacola who enjoys also a more
than local reputation as a political
prognosticator, said: "If it should
ever come to a vote of the people, I
venture the assertion there would
not be two hundred votes cast for
annexation in Escambia county."
Verily, the whole matter seems to
have been either a huge joke or a
piece of political buncombe on the
part of certain West Florida persons
in need of an "issue." The most
surprising part of it all is that Ala-
bama should have played her part in
it with such earnestness.
Hon. Robt. F. Rogers, State In-
spector of Convicts and Convict
Camps, is in the city this week,

I want to see," he declares, "is the
searchlight of a full investigation

orators ahd will draw immense
crowds to both places.

Africa Has a Bird Whose Plumage
Will Not "Wash."
"The man who devotes his life to the
study of color in all its remarkable
phases occasionally comes across some
queer facts," recently said the senior
partner of a well known firm of artists'
color men. "The printing of a newspa-
per color supplement sets thousands of
unsuspected toilers in motion. The nat-
ural earth of Sienna and Umbria, in It-
aly, produces the raw colors, and the
same material fused the familiar 'burnt
sienna' and 'burnt umber.' 'Turkey red'
comes from the Indian madder plant
'Carmine' and the 'lakes' are squeezed
cochineaL 'Sepia' is, of course, taken
from the cuttlefish. 'Gamboge' is the
yellow sap of a Siamese tree. 'Ultra-
marine' is, or should be, made from the
priceless lapis lazull, while 'prussian.
blue,' which was stumbled upon by- ac-
cident, is the burnt product of horses'
hoofs and impure potassium carbonate.
India ink' is made in China, 'blue
black' is the charcoal of the vine stalk
and bisterr' is made from ordinary
wood ashes.
"As you are probably aware, the dis-
tinguishing feature of India Ink is its
refusal to 'run' when subsequently cov-
ered with tinted washes. It is what the
drapers call a 'fast' color, and for this
reason is exclusively employed by en-
gineers, draftsmen and others.
"Most persons imagine that all nat-
ural colors, such as those of birds'
plumage, are 'fast.' This Is erroneous.
The well known African touraco (plan-
tain eater) is a case in point If this
bird is caught in a shower of rain, the
brilliant crimson found in his plumage
will 'run,' leaving the erstwhile crim-
son feathers a species of dirty white,
notwithstanding that his green feath-
ers will remain perfectly 'fast' Inquiry

into this curious 'running' trait reveals
a marvelous provision of nature. A
careful analysis of the crimson feath-
ers shows that the brilliant coloring Is
due to the presence of a large quantity
of copper."-Fiber and Fabric.

SInlavestliator's Discovery of What
am Eaormous Bouquet of the Flow-
r e f ableh Adoras te o Da.ta
Speeekh of the Average Mortal.

"Do you know that the average Amer-
hlan Is a hopeless and incorrigible and
unmitigated liar?" said an amateur
cynic of Baronne street. "I don't mean
be lies viciously, but suave mendacity
glides off the endof his tongue as eas-
ily as molasses flows from a spigot on
a warm day in summer. He does it un-
consciously, habitually, automatically
-just as his lungs expand and his
heart palpitates and his hair grows,
without any special attention from the
rest of his system. He does it because
he can't help it The thing has become
a second nature.
"I had all this brought home to me,"
continued the amateur cynic, "by a
very simple little experiment which I
tried on myself and a few others no
longer ago than yesterday morning.
Did you ever see a pocket counting ma-
chine? Well, It's a little device shaped
like a watch. Whenever you press the
stem the needle on the dial jumps a
point, and it registers in that way up
to several thousand on the principle of
a cyclometer. They are used by any-
body making long counts and are very
handy, because they never forget where
they leave off.
"But, to come to the point, some-
thing happened to remind me of our
national vice of untruthfulness as I
was getting up yesterday, and I deter-
mined to 'keep tab' on myself and as-
certain, if possible, how many actual,
out and out lies I put into circulation
In the course of the day. I chanced to
have one of the little counting ma-
chines I have just mentioned, so I slip-
ped it into my pocket and started out.

door. Smithson was passing and stop-
ped to shake hands. 'Hello, old man!'
said 1. 'Delighted to see you,' when as
a matter of fact 1 was deuced sorry to
see him. because I owe him ten. I
gave the counter a squeeze and hur-
ried on, but before I got to the office I
had jogged it nine times.
"What did I jog it for, did you ask?
Oh, trivialities, mere trivialities, but at
the same time point blank lies, every
one of 'em. Whenever I opened my
mouth out dropped some confounded
hyperbole. I told Jones the joke he in-
sisted in springing on me was the 'best
I ever heard' and then made a double
tally In assuring his wife she was Iook-
Ing remarkably well when she was
looking exactly like a scarecrow. I
told another friend I never laughed so
much in my life as I had at something
or other. I don't remember now what,"
and still another that I hadn't slept a
wink for three nights when I had neu-
ralgia lately-all lies. bald lies, in spite
of their harmlessness.
"When I reached the office and look-
ed at the dial, I was horrified. 'Good
heavens!' I said to myself. 'It seems
to be physically Impossible for me to
speak the plain truth In the paltriest
matters. I'll. just remain perfectly
quiet for half an hour and keep check
on Boggs.'
"Boggs is our head bookkeeper and
a pillar in one of the suburban church-
es," continued the amateur cynic. "He
wears rubber overshoes In wet weath-
er, cultivates sandy side whiskers, car-
ries a gingham umbrella, belongs to a
building and loan association and has
all the other marks of severe respecta-
bility. I had supposed him to be the
quintessence of cast iron veracity, but
when I sat down in cold blood to put
him on record I was astounded at the
blase fashion with which he frivoled
with the truth. I pushed the button
on him 15 times in 27 minutes; then he
got into a whispered conversation with
a caller, and I lost the thread of his
remarks. But I am certain if I had
been in earshot the counter would have
had hard work keeping up with the

and later on, when I made a quiet test

office, I came to the conclusion that I

me to push the indicator up exactly 22
times in 15 minutes. During the last
part of the stretch, however, he was
trying to trade off a secondhand bley-

Prospers by War.
Few people know that more than half
the banjo and drum heads sold in the
United States are: made on Long Is-
land. Near the railroad station at
Cold Spring is a little red building sur-
rounded by frames, in which skins are
stretched for drying, while near by is
an artificial pond, with wooden sides
and bottom, filled with a chemical mix-
ture. It is an unpretentious establish-
ment, but in our two wars and in the
peace between it has fathered a great
deal of noise. The business was estab-
lished in 1800, and success was almost
Immediate. Competition was strong
after the rush of war orders was over,
but the business has advanced in im-
portance until now there ar bhut three
factories in this country whose opposi-
tion can be felt. Two of these are in
Brooklyn and the other at High View,
New York markets furnish the salt-
ed raw skins froi i which the drum-
heads are made. ''he hair is removed
from the skins by.a chemical bath in
the artificial ponds. and the skins are
then stretched on hle racks and dried.
A thorough scrapitig removes any par-
ticles of fat or IIsh that may have
adhered to the died skin. which is
then the thickness .of parchment. The
skins are thoroughly bleached in the
drying process ani are then ready for

How the Offaprila. of Our First Colo-
nists Were Christened.
It is an interesting study to trace the
underlying reason for many of the cu-
rious names which'are given to the off-
spring of the first colonists. Parents
searched for names of deep signifi-
cance-for names appropriate to con-
ditions, for those of profound Influ-
ence presumably on the child's life.
The Rev. Richard Buck, one of the
early parsons in Virginia, in days of
deep depression, named his first child
Mara. This text indicates the reason
for his choice: "Call me Mara, for the
Almighty has dealt very bitterly with
me. I went out full, and the Lord has
brought me home empty." His second
child was christened Gersbom for
Moses' wife "bare him a sou and called
his name Gershomi for he said I have
been in a strange l'4nd."
Many names have a pathos and sad-
Sness which can be felt down through
the centuries. Dame Dinely, widow of
a doctor, or barber surgeon, who had

died in the snow while striving to visit
a distant patient, named her poor babe
The children of iRoger Clapp were
named Experience, Waitstill, Preserv-
ed, Hopestill, Wait, Thanks, Decide,
Unite and Supply. Madam Austin, an
early settler of old Narragansett, had
15 children. Their names were Parvis.
Picus, Piersus, Prisemus, Polybius,
Lois, Lettice, Avis, Anstice, Eunice,
Mary, John, Elizabeth, Ruth, Freelove.
All lived to be threescore and ten, one
to be 102 years old. Edward Bendall's
children were named Truegrace, Re-
form, Hoped For, More Mercy and Re-
store. Richard Gridley's offspring
were Return, Believe and Tremble.-

The bakery not only has to be kept

sum of money as a surety for the prop-

The law also looks after his weights

places him in the same position as the
British baker, but in addition the law
regulates the price at which bread can

A Sympathetic Memory.
In a western Massachusetts town
lives a young woman who Is blessed
with both discrimination and tact.
The first of these admirable qualities
she has displayed by her two mar-
riages. Her first husband was a minis-
ter, a most delightful man. He died,
and after a lapse of five or six years
she was united to his only brother, who
was a successful lawyer in New York.
On her library desk stands a picture
of the first partner of her joys and sor-
rows. and one day a curious caller ask-
ed whom the photograph represented.
"That." said the hostess, with evi-
dent emotion. "is a picture of my hus-
band's brother, who died eight years
ago and who was very dear to u?
both."-Youth's Companion.
"What's your fare?" asked old Flint-
skin of his cabby the other day and
was met with the stereotyped reply:
"Well st. I will leave that to you."
'Thank you: you're very kind," said
ld F.. buttoning up his pockets and

Aa Expert In Pawnbroklng Who la [
His Regular Customers.
In the neighborhood where pawn-
shops abound the soaker flourishes.
The soaker acts as middleman between
the pawnbroker and his customers. He
explains his mission and accounts for
his usefulness thus:
"The people down here employ me,"
said he, "not because they are asham-!
ed to be seen going into a pawnshop
themselves, but because I can get more
for the goods ftan they cqin. There's
an art in pawning a ooat or a ring, just
the same as in everything Ulse.
"I've known people to go into a
pawnshop with some old article to
pawn and -to look the proprietor over
with a supercilious air, as if they con-
sidered themselves so far above him
socially that he couldn't touch them
with a 40 foot pole. Naturally, for'
sheer spite. the broker offers them only
about half as much as they would get
If they approached him properly. flav-
ing had a wide experience of my own,
I know how to avoid sueh difficulties.
I am not servile, but I am polite and
respectful, and as those ltwo qualities
touch the most generous chord in the
broker's bosom I get all I want on the'
proffered chattels.
"As recompense for my services I
charge my customers 10 per cent com-
mission. I have regular customers,
and then. of course. I do many odd
jobs for occaslonals. There are fam-
ilies down here for whom I pawn the
same things over and oyer again, one
week after the other. On pay day they
take their things out of soak. Three
days later they put them in again, and
the next pay day they take them out
again. And so it goes. month after
month. I canvass the houses just like
a book agent or corn plaster peddler or
Insurance solicitor.
"'Anything to be pawned today?' I
"And If there Is I take It around to
some shop and raise the necessary
dough and take it back and get my
commission. Once in awhile I come
across somebody who abuses me and
calls me a shark, but I'm nothing of
the sort. I'm earning a decent living
at a legitimate business."-New York

A Point at Issue.
Several of the lawyers had told their
stories. some of which ridiculed the
continued use of legal verbiage and the
absurd lengths to which members of
the profession sometimes go in taking
advantage of technicalities.
"A rank outsider," announced the
member of the profession who had
been a good listener, "a client of mine,

terpretation that ever came to my
knowledge. Re was executor under a

husband pleasantly. "I've thought once
or twice from the number of times I
had to ring up before getting any
answer that you didn't enjoy It."
"Oh, no, George," said little Mrs.
Morse earnestly, "but you know soare-
times when you ring me up I'm busy
about my housework with my old
apron on, and of course, knowing how
particular you are, I always like to
unpin my skirt and put on a clean
white apron before I begin to talk to
you, don't you see?"-Youth's Compan-
How Flags Wear Out.
It costs money to fly even two small
flags every day in the year. The two
small ones on the east and west fronts
of the capitol, each about three yards
long, which is small for such an im-
mense structure as the capitol, fray out
so fast that it costs $100 a year to re-
place them. They are darned every
day and on windy days probably two
or three times. Even with all these
economies $100 worth of fine wool
floats off into the air in such fine parti-
cles that never a trace of it can be
found even at the foot of the two flag-
staffs.-Pittsburg Dispatch.

A Dude of 1770..
From a newspaper printed in the
year 1770 is the following description
of a dandy: "A few days ago a mac-
aroni made his appearance In the as-
sembly rooms at Whitehaven, dressed
In a mixed silk coat. pink satin waist-
toat and breeches, covered with an
hloeant silk met. white tilk atockinte

without putting in her ctalm. On her
retur she went in person and demand-

"The conscientious executor got out'
the will. studied It, scratched his head
and finally handed down his opinion:
"'Madam. you are alive now. There
can be no reasonable question as to
that, for I have the conclusive evidence
of my owni eyes. But I am possessed
of no legal proof that you were alive a
year ago. I am, as you know. within
the restrictions of the will. I will pay
the annuity for this year. but must in-
sist upon satisfactory affidavits that
you were not dead when the preceding
annuity was passed.'

Mason-How about the naming of
that baby of yours?
Gilbert-My wife gave way to me In
a very proper and wifely manner. She
said she didn't care what name I gave
the little fellow so long as it was Hen-
ry. So that's the name I gave him.
You know I felt, after the hearty man-
ner in which she deferred to me, I
ought to yield a single point merely
out of appreciation tf her humility.-

Janus Was Stumpeq, So lie Conclud-
ed to Return t*e Property.
"I was in Mississilppi during the car-
petbag days," said the Pittsburg story
teller, "and one night at a hotel I was
robbed of watch and money. I found
out next day that it was one of the
colored servants, and I went to a jus-
tice of the peace anq swore out a war-
rant. The justice was also a colored
man, and he didn't si'eti anxious to do
the right thing. I tlfnk hle was in with
the thief, though wll:~g to give me a
show. When the p)ri:,-or took the
stand, he declared hl:!:t if he had stolen
anything it was while he was walking
around in his sleep. The statement
caught his honor, and he said:
'How yo' gwine to hold a pusson
'sponsible fur what he does in his
sleep? Dar ain't no law 'bout dat. If
Julius dun took dat watch an money
an didn't know whtt be was doing, den
he's got to be discharged from ens-
"I was pleading my own case," con-
tinued the Iron City man, "and I re-
plied to the judge that the rule ought
to work both ways If Julius had tak-
en my property In 1is sleep; he ought to
return it while he 'as in the same con-
dition. I wasn't blaming him for being.
a somnambulist anId was willing I[t;
should go free. but'I should expect hiil.
to enter my room in his sleep that very
night and leave my lost property on ;)
chair. That was a stumper cn judtdg
and prisoner, and after scratching their
heads and wigglidg around his honor
"'Julius, dis yere case has dun got
mixed up. 'Cordin to law yo' got away
wid de stuff an can't be held. but 'cord-
in to de white mpn's dreambook yo's

an put yo'r steali"i's back in his room.
Dat will leabe everything jest as it
was befo', an it 'pears to me dat yo'd
better tackle some older man an do it
wid yo'r eyes wide open.'
"Julius didn't wait to walk in his
sleep again, but handed me my proper-
ty before we left the courtroom."-
