Exposition and the South's

Interest in it


In Securing Places of Honor in the
Big Show's Management.

Continued from last week.
Six car loads containing the
exhibit from the state of Louis-
iana arrived a few days ago.
The exhibit excites a great deal
of interest here, and is being in-
stalled by the efficient commis-
nisisioners, Major J. C. Lee,
and Dr. W. C. Stubbs, in the
15r o square feet reserved for it.
The location of the Louisiana
exhibit is one of the most con-
spicuous in the Agricultural
Building. It occupies the first
space to the right of the main
entrance. It is enclosed within
three arches supported by four
columns. The first column is
made of cotton, the second of
sugar cane, the third of corn
and the fourth of rice. On the
pedestals of these columns are
splendid palm and palmetto
trees that reach nearly to the
ceiling. The wood work of the
exhibit is of Louisiana cypress,
enameled in white and border-
ed with gold leaf. In golden
letters on the two larger panels
is a list of the resources of the
state. On the central arch is a
shield bearing the coast of arms
of Louisiana, on which is em-
blazoned the white pelican, fas-
tened in a cluster of palm
branches. The effect must be
seen to be appreciated. The
large palms and palmettos which
were brought from the horticul-
tural gardens of New Orleans
are very .beautiful. Major Lee
F ---ys the state of Louisiana real-
izes an average of $96.000,000
per annum from its agricultural
crops alone. There are four
large cases containing rice in ev-
ery form. As many more con-
tain a fine exhibit of corn and
cane. There are several kinds
of cotton, with the manufacture
ed products in other cases. Ev-
ery product of the resourceful
state is here in good shape.
Some of the sugar cane is so tall
that it almost reaches to the
top of the space in which the
Louisiana exhibit is installed.
I noticed boxes of gumbo fili.
Major Lee tells me he is going
to give these people up here
something good to eat, when the
Louisiana cooks make the gum-
bo in the rice kitchen, which is
another part of the grounds
There were several huge bales
of cotton and three bales of the
prepared grey moss, out of
which the best hair matresses
can be made. The appropria-
tion by the state of Loisiana was
only $10,000.
500 square feet in the Fores-
try Building has been reserved
for the forestry exhibit from
the Pelican State. This con-
sists of a magnificent display of
fifty of the handsomest woods
from Louisiana highly polished,
and in the rough. Another
beautiful feature of this exhibit
will be a profusion of the fresh
grey moss, a graceful growth
which hangs from our trees,
unfamiliar to the people of this
section but seen everywhere in
The handsome cases in which
many of the products are in-
stalled were made in New Or-
leans of the exquisite fine grain-
ed cypress wood. I confess to
feeling a personal pride in this
comprehensive exhibit from a

southern state, and regret more
than ever that every one of them

The Niagara, which has here-
tofore been used as a large fam-
ily hotel is one of the most aris-
tocratic sections of Buffalo. It
is within five minutes of the
business center of the city and
fifteen minutes of the Exposi-
tion grounds. One side of it is
a superb view of Lake Erie and
on the other a large park, the
U. S. barracks and a number of
smaller parks. The location is
very retired and salubrious. A
fine band plays every afternoon
in the park and cool breezes
from the lake sweep over the
entire building. The rooms are
newly furnished, and a great
many distinguished people have
already engaged suites of rooms
in it. Among these are the
President of the United States,
a number of prominent army
and navy officers, the diplo-
matic corps, many Mexican and
South American officials and
several New York millionaires,
who demand suites of rooms,
and of course, are prepared to
pay for them. Prices for board
will not be exorbitant. Re-
ports to the contrary are erro-
neous. Besides, there are a
large number of suburban towns
in easy reach of Buffalo, where
provisions and fruits of every
description are cheap and the
sanitary condition perfect. Buf-
falo itself has long been noted
for its exceptionally good hy-
genic conditions.
The Great Falls are accessible
either by trolley, steamboat or
steam cars. The Canadian fron-
tier can be reached by a charm-
ing ride across Lake Erie on a
fine line of steamships. This
line makes connection with a
scenic route on the Canadian
side that is equal to any in the
world. At least fifty beautiful
suburban towns are within half
an hour's ride of the Exposition
In the face of these facts,

IHe Kept His Leg.
Twelve years ago J. W. Sullivan, of
Hartford, Conn., scratched his leg with
a rusty wire. Inflammation and blood
poisoning set it. For two years he suff-
ered intensely. Then the best doctors
urged amputation, "but," he writes, "I
used one bottle of Electric Bitters and
1 1-2 boxes of Buckleo's Arnica Salve
and my leg was sound and well as ev-
er." For Eruptions, Eczema, Tetter,
Salt Rheum, Sores and all blood disor-
ders Electric Bitters has no rival on

Iron Expected Daily.
Messrs. Hanks and Saxon are
progressing nicely with their
contract on the Georgia Pine
Railway. They are a consider-
able distance out with the grad-
ing now, and are expecting iron
daily, with which to commence
laying track. Everything points
to an early completion of the
road. in fact the Comnanv's de-

state, and she has representa-
tives here who will make the
most, of her splendid resources.
A con-iderable degree of pub-
licity has been given to the
misleading rumor that the hotel
and boarding house accommo-
dations of Buffalo will not, be
adequate to the crowd who will
visit the Pan-American Expo-
sition. Investigation shows
that nearly all the private house
holders in the city will be will-
ing to take roomers or boarders
at reasonable rates. Several
new hotels are now nearly com-
pleted. A great many board-
ing houses are in good shape to
entertain large crowds. These
have also made preparations to
have cots ready in case of an
Among the new hotels is
Statler's on which the finishing
touches are now being put, just
outside the Exposition grounds.
Near this several other hotels
are rapidly going up. In town
the Genesee house, the oldest
and best known in the city, has
been undergoing extensive re-
pairs. Here elaborate arrange-
ments have been made to put a
number of people in one room,
should necessity arise, and the
price will be $2.0( a night. The
Tifft house stands on about the
same footing. The Iroquois has
just finished a large and hand-
some cafe and is prepared to en-
tertain hundreds of guests on
the European plan only. Here,
too, two people can occupy a
very comfortable room at $2.00
a night a piece. For exposition
times these rates are consider-
ed very reasonable.
There are many other hotels
in the city of Buffalo, among
which are the Broezel, the Buck-
ingham, the Marlborough, the
Roanoke, the Aberdeen, the
Kenilworth, and others in which
the rates vary according to the
location of rooms.

Build More Houses.
That Tallahassee needs ii.o.
business houses and needs th'
bad. has been repeatedly note
by the TALLAIIASSEAN, but we
are sorry to say our monied
men are slow to take hold of the
situation. Within the past six
months we have known several
small enterprises to seek other
locations because no building
could be secured here. This is
a state of affairs that will not be
allowed to last long. If home
people will not grasp the oppor-
tunity for profitable and safe
investment, outsiders will-just
as soon as the facts become
known to them. By the way,
this same scarcity of houses for
rent exists in the residence part
of the city, too.

$25.0000 Given Away.
In the past year Dr. R. V. Pierce has
given away copies of his great work,
The People' Com:nmon Sense Medical
Adviser, at an expense to him of $25,000,-
00 exclusive of postage. This standard
book on medicine and hygiene, coa
taines 1008 pages and more than 700
illustrations. It treats of the great *s
and gra,-est problems of human hie in
simple English, from a common sense
view. It answers those questions of sex
which linger unspoken upon the lips of
youth and maiden. It is essentially a
family book. aud its advice in a moment
of sudden illness or accident may be the
means of saving a valuable Ffe. This

for this season was run last Sun-
day to Lanark and Carrabelle.
by the management of the Car-

soon put on a regular Sunday

S4-he W. C. T. U. of Florida
Joined hands with the sa-
4r, keepers and beer distillers
and with one voice, all have
cried out, "Lord. save us from
the Dispensary." The former
were trembling in their boots
for reasons wholly personal and
entirely selfish; not so with the
latter. The motive which gave
birth to their petitions and cries
-of protest was solicitude for the
fair name of our virgin State.
Did this organization forget the
sons and daughters of her State
and the network of snares and
temptations which the bar-rooms
ever weave about their feet?
Did they forget the social drink
where hundreds and thousands
of our youth take the first step
downward? Did they forget
the carousals, gambling, shoot-
ing affrays, murders and other
nameless evils which are born
behind the blind-doors of these
diabolical dens of destruction?
Do ruined homes, wrecked
lives and broken hearts count
naught in the contemplation of
the State's fair name? Why so
much consideration in behalf of
the State? Why so much fear
lest the State of Florida should
go into a business she is already
into, and deal in something she
is already dealing in?
Another plea which these
friends of temperance bring be-
fore us is that thee Dispensary
would put whiskey into the
hands of politicians, Better far
to have it in the hands of poli-
ticians than in the hands and
down the throats (f our prec
ions young men! Besides, do
we not entrust the highest and
best interests of our State in the
hands of politicians? If we en-
trust the best, may we not en-
trust the worst?
The W. C. T. U. has practi-
caly said: "If we can't get rid
,of EVERY DROP of whiskey, then
6.we don't want to get rid of any.
-We prefer to drown in it rather
Man havethe.greaer part of it
a onedff. We iojd to our
principles and aimn at prohibi-
tion, and if we cqn't get that,
we won't have aijything. No,
not even a measure* that means
a great step toward it. Such is
the principle upon which these
petitions were built, the pivotal
point around which the senti-
ment resolved. Just as if we
are not further from Prohibition
now than we would have been
had the Dispensary Bill passed.
It would have been at least one
step forward. Yet it was held
back by champions of Temper-
ance who called in ministers of
the gospel to help them! We
want perfection, and this Bill
isn't perfect, they say. True, it
isn't, but all must admit that it
is nearer perfection than the
present system. Perfect meth-
ods and perfect Jaws are not
reached at a single leap. If we
can't get best, we must take
next best, and be thankful for
even a small advance.

resent the Alkahest Lyceumn
System of Atlanta, Ga., in
Florida. Ie will begin the or-
ganizing work in Tallahassee at
once before the people leave for
summer resorts, which very
much handicapped the work
there last summer.
I was very sorry for the out-
come of the lyceum course which
I organized for you last sum
mer but it was not my fault nor
the adult of the system or the
c )nm)any that it was not carried
thr ugh. Most of you know
the eason it failed which is not
nee ssary to discuss here.

The people of Tallahassee can
hear eight of those attractions
selected by their local officers
provided 100 members are se-
cured, paying $4.00 each for a
double season ticket, the same
as was offered this year. Mr.
Moor will see the members that
subscribed last summer first,
and they will be given a chance
to remain a member for the
next season. Those that do not
secure tickets and attend half
of the attractions will pay as
much as those that have tickets
to all.

Is It but selfishness? The optimist who
goes through life whistling and singing
songs of cheer Is not entitled to any
special credit, because it is a pleasure
to him to be haLppy. If it didn't make
him glad to be happy, he wouldn't be
that way. So you see selfishness lies
at the bottom of his good cheer.
"Then there is the pessimist. Is he
discouraged because lihe thinks it is his
duty to mankind to paint dark pic-

case of selfishness. He gratifies him-
self by being unhappy and trying to
make others so. Love, too, is selfish-

The Way He Spent It Preparlas P e
His Death.
"Billy Bolton, the Lansingburg brew-
er, was a very rich man and one with a
host of friends," said an up state man
to the New York Sun. "His brewery
In Lansingburg was a profitable con-
cern, and he lmractically owned about
all the saloons in that town.
"One day after a consultation his phy-
sicians told him that he had Bright's
disease and that he surely would not
live more than a year. Billy took their
word for it and made up his mind to
make the fur fly while life was left.
He had never traveled much. and so he
decided to go around the world.
"He took with him a congenial friend
and plenty of money, and away they
went. They left a trail of fire and ash-
es through all the capitals of Europe
and the queer and strange places of
Asia and Africa. After nine months
they came back, and Bolton brought
with him the most marvelous collection
of souvenirs and presents tilat any
man not a professional collector ever
brought into this country. The duties
amounted to $3.000.
"Arrived in Lansingburg, Billy hired
the town hall, sent his packing boxes
filled with these oriental and European
treasures up to the hall and had them
all taken out and put on exhibition as
though for a church fair. Upon each
article he marked the name of some
friend whom he wished to remember
with a gift. There were hundreds in
this category, but Billy had presents
for them all.

"On the day appointed for the pres-
entation he invited his army of friends
to the town hall. To each he turned
over the present-selected for him, and
amid the cheers of his grateful and ad-
miring fellow townsmen the hall was
stripped of its beautiful things.
"When the last present had been
placed in the hands of its recipient,
Billy went back to his home and lay
down to die. Within the year his phy-
sicians' prophecy came true, and the
town gave him the finest funeral that
any man ever had."

The True Mission of Lsxnry.
Np luxury is Justifiable that ends in
simple enjoyment. It must be turned
to good account by adding to our pow-
ers of usefulness. It we enjoy reading,
are we enthusiastic for the public libra-
ry? If we enjoy outdoor life, are we
anxious for parks and pleasure
grounds for the people? If we revel in
art or music. do we long that picture
galleries he thrown open or good music
be attainable by all'- Do we strive
whenever possible to share our luxu-
ries. whatever they may be. with those
less favored than ourselves, or are we
satisfied with our own enjoyment as an
end instead of using it as a means to
bettering the lives of others also?
Truthful answers to those questions
will speedily tell us also whether our
own special luxuries are building up
character and life or whether they are
the means of lowering the one and
narrowing the other.-Philadelphia

Queer Timepieces Owned by Two of
England's Queens.
Among the treasures of a Swiss mu-
seum. inserted in the top of an old fash-
ioned pencil case, is the tiniest watch
ever constructed. It is only three-six-
teenths of an inch in diameter, and its
little dial not only indicates hours, min-
utes and seconds, but also the days of
the month. So perfectly formed is this
lilliputian watch that it keeps excel-
lent time and is a marvelous piece of
mechanical workmanship.
Two of the most elaborate and curi-
ous watches which the world has ever
seen belonged to Queen Elizabeth and
her unfortunate contemporary, Mary,
queen of Scots. Good Queen Bess had
a watch made for her in the form of a
duck, with beautifully chased feathers,
the lower part of which opened. The
face was of silver, with an elaborate
gilt design, and the whole was kept -in
'a case of brass, covered with black
leather thickly studded with big silver
The ill fated Mary was the possessor
of a watch in the form of a skulL The
dial was introduced where the palate
should have been, and the works occu-
pied the place of brains in the crani-
um. In the hollow of the skull, more-
over, was a bell which had works of its
own and by means of which a hammer
struck out the hours upon It.
One of the choicest rarities of the
Bernal collection was a book shaped
watch. This curious time indicator was
made by order of Bogislaus XIV, Duke
of Pomerania, in the time of Gusta!us
Adolphus. On the face of the book,
where the dial of the watch is set,
there is an engraved inscription of the
duke and his titles and armorial bear-
Ings, together with the date, 1627. On

Some strange tales have been told by
old timers in the stage business about
the Keans, both the elder and the last
to be seen on the American stage.
Some have said that hard study made
them a little wrong at times, and some
of the things they did certainly looked
It is told by an old New Orleans
horseman, who is here from the Cres-
cent City, that when Kean the youn-
ger was playing there he nearly scared
a super to death and came near "pink-
ing" him.
It was In "Ricpard III," in the scene
where he sees the ghosts. The stage
manager was a bit the worse for drink
and determined to have some fun. He
did not like Kean, as he was a hard
man behind the scenes. Among the
supers was a raw Irish lad who had
never seen a stage before. The man-
ager told this fellow that if he would
run across the stage when he gavehim
the tip he would stand to earn $2. The
poor fellow was broke, and a two spot
looked to him like a national bank.
He agreed, and the stage manager gave
him a gaudy oilcloth banner bearing
these words, "Smoke General Jackson

Nearly Every Known Means of Leeo-
motion Is In Use.
Everywhere up the Volga and its
hundred tributaries ascend the iron
barges of the Caspian sea oil fleet,
while through the canals to St. Peters-
burg alone pass annually during the
215 days of free navigation thousands
of steamers and barges bearing mil-
lions of tons of freight. Every known
means of locomotion is used, from
men who, like oxen, tramp the tow-
paths, hauling the smaller barges, to
powerful tugs that creep along by
means of an endless chain laid in the
bed of the canals and minor rivers,
dragging after them at snail pace great
caravans of heavy barges.
From the greater streams Immense
craft nearly 400 feet long, 15 feet in
depth, carrying 6,000 tons of freight,
drift down to the Caspian, where they
are broken to pieces to be used as fire-
wood on the steamers going up stream.
In all there are 8,000 miles of naviga-
ble waterways in the valley of the Vol-
ga, or if the streams which float the
giant rafts that form so large a part of
the traffic of the rivers are included
the mileage is increased to nearly 15,-
000, or as much as that of the valley of
the MississippL.
Fifty thousand rafts are floated
down the Volga annually, many of
them 160 feet long by 7 thick, and this
gives but a faint idea of the real traffic
of the river, for in addition there are
10,000,000 tons of produce passing up
and down the river during the open
season. Much of this centers at NIJnl
Novgorod. To this famous market
steamers and barges come from all
parts of Russia. bringing goods to be
sold at the great annual fair. over
$200.000.000 worth of merchandise
changing bands in a few weeks. Thir-
ty thousand craft, including rafts, are
required for this traffic. They come
from as far north as Archangel, as far
east as the Urals, from Astrakhan In
the south. St. Petersburg and Moscow
to the west. while great caravans of
ships of the desert arrive daily from
all parts of Asia.-Engineering Maga-

A Pompous Reeeptlon That Amused
President Grevy.
M. Severiaro de Heredia, the minis-
ter of public works in the Rouvier cabi-
net during the presidency of M. Grevy,
belonged to the famous naturalized Cu-
ban family, of which another member,
the Comte de Heredia, is one of the im-
mortal 40 of the French academy. Most
of the family have dark spins, suspi-
ciously mulatto, and other negro char-
acteristics. This has, however, in no-
wise interfered with their standing in
Paris, where several of the family have
long been prominent. The former min-
ister had also been president of the
municipal council of Paris and a depu-
ty from a Paris arrondissement.
His dark skin led to a curious mis-
take at the Elysee the day after he had
been appointed a member of the Rou-
vier cabinet. According to immemorial
custom the new ministers called singly
on President Grevy to pay their re-
spects. On the same day, as it hap-
pened, an official visit was expected
from the president of the republic of
Haiti, who was to present his letters to
the president. When M. de Heredia
arrived in the court of the palace, the
minor officials stationed there, who
were not familiar with the new minis-
ter's features, judged from his com-
plexion that he was the Haitian- igni-
tary. The courtyard became very ani-
mated with guards hurrying to and fro
to their places, while one of the officers
of the president's military household
went to inform M. Grevy of the dis-
tinguished visitor's arrival.
M. de Heredia received all this with
dignified composure, for, never having
been a minister before this, he thought
this ceremonial was probably the usual
one. Finally, with the beating of
drums, he was ushered into the recep-
tion room. where the chief executive
stood ready to receive him. "What,"
cried he, "it's only you, Heredia!"
"Why, yes, M. le President," replied
the puzzled minister. Grevy began to
laugh. "Well," he cried, "you have
been minister only 24 hours and have
succeeded in turning my house upside
down. What will you do later on?"-

It Was Up to Lieutenant Farrow
Onee to Emulate Their Example,
but the West Pointer Used His Wits
and Eaeaped the Ordeal.
The Indian scouts that joined forces
with the United States army In 1878
to make prisoners of the Sheep Eaters
In western Idaho were skeptical at
first of Lieutenant Farrow's abilities
to lead them into battle. They had
never seen his courage tested and
plainly Intimated by word and action
that they had no intention of obeying
his orders unless he should prove him-
self braver than any chief, subehief or
buck in ithe command.
First they gave themselves up to all
kinds of physical torture as a lesson
to him. They slashed their bodies
with knives without showing pain.
They slit the skin on their chests, ran
skewers thereunder and jerked off
cutaneous and fleshly strips while smil-
Ing happily In his face. They split
their ears, pierced their noses, lacer-
ated their cheeks, butchered their arms
and legs. Their stunts were so far
beyond anything Farrow could inflict
upon himself that the poor young lieu-
tenant thought he "saw his finish."
Suddenly, while rivulets of cold per-
spiration trickled down his spine, the
West Pointer recollected that in his
schoolboy days he was an adept at
driving a pin into the thick of his
"vastus externus" without feeling pain
and the joyful Inspiration to thus illu-
minate his courage seized him.
The necessary pin was in the lapel
of his fatigue jacket. Ruthlessly he
slit the front of his breeches leg from
pocket to knee, then his drawers till
the front of the thigh was exposed to
the wondering gaze of the Indians
gathered close around. Then dramat--
ically exhibiting the pin, an affair of
an inch and a sixteenth, he reached
for a flat stone and drove the harmless
bit of wire down to the head in the
unresisting muscle. His handsomn
face was as unclouded as when he
helped to haze his first plebe.
The red men nodded approvingly,
grunted, looked wise and sat down on
their haunches. They had seen some-
thing new, but wanted something more
convincing. Farrow realized this and
was in the seventh heaven of despair
as he smilingly pulled out the pin and
held it aloft for inspection.
To show the white feather meant In
that hostile country lUsubordination
and treachery, involving Farrow's
mysterious death. It was a moment to
try a soul-and to fry it. The lieuten-
ant whispered to his trusted sergeant:
"I am going to take a desperate chance.
I am going to shoot myself through
the head with my revolver, but you
stand beside your horse, and just an
instant before I shoot you fire your
rifle, yell 'Si-wash!' mount and make
off through the woods as fast as you
can ride. Don't forget to fire before I
do, else I shall be a dead man."
Sitting upon a jagged rock, he ex-
plained to the Indians what he was
about to do, and with great delibera-
tion and some fine theatricals he cock-
ed the pistol and placed the muzzle
against his temple. The Indians were
wrought up to a high pitch. They had
never seen a man shoot himself through
the head and live. Surely here was
the bravest of all brave leaders. They
would follow him through helL

"S1-wash?" The Indians knew what
that cry meant. In less time than it
takes to tell it Farrow was alone. His
forces had scattered to the four winds.
In the course of a few hours all were
united again, but the courage test was
not renewed.
Twenty-two years after this exciting
Incident, on a certain evening in 19(0,
Farrow occupied a box in the Madison
Square Garden when Buffalo Bill's
Wild West was in full blast Chief
Joseph, the celebrated commander of
the Nez Perces. whom Farrow had cap-
tured 22 years previously and whom
be had not seen in the Interim, led a
wild, whooping, yelling, screeching
mob of painted Indians out into the
arena for a dash around the circle.
But the charge was interrupted-cut
short. When Joseph reached the curve
near the Madison avenue end of the
amphitheater, he pulled his horse sharp-
ly to the right, cutting across the first
file of warriors in most dangerous fash-
ion. In a mad gallop he poked his
charger's head into an arena box.
straightened up In his stirrups, held
out his hand and cried: "How! How!
How!" The old fellow had caught
sight of Farrow, and nothing could
prevent him from riding up to salute

A Big One.
An octopus which had been in a fight
with some other monster once drifted
ashore on the Malay peninsula. He had
feelers, or arms, which were from 12
to 17 feet long and weighed altogether.
550 pounds. It was calculated that
he was big enough and strong enough
to drag a two ton fishing boat under
the surface by main strength.

and satisfaction that I recommend
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Di-

W. Sawtelle, '.of Hartford, Conn. "A
lady customer, seeing the remedy ex-
posed for sale, on my show case, said
to me:'A really believe that medicine
saved my life the past summer while
at the shore,' and she became so en-
thusiastic over its merits that I at
once made up my mind to recommend
it in the future. Recently a gentle-
man came into my store so overcome
with colic pains that he sank at once
to the floor. I gave him a dose of
this remedy which helped him. I
repeated the dose and in fifteen min-
utes he left my store smilingly in-
forming me that he felt as well as

An Early Georgia Monster.
In the fore part of August, 1812, a
party of hunters found In a mountain-
ous region now known as Rabun coun-
ty, Ga.. a being nearly eight feet high
covered with bluish hair and having a
human face adorned with Immense
ears resembling those of an ass. The
creature was ste", deaf and on that
account seemed T'uolly unconscious of
the approach of the men. This mon-
ster seems, from old accounts, to have
been seen upon several occasions dur-
ing the next four years.
In 1816 a number of adventurers
from Virginia, most of them surveyors
working up the unexplored portions of
Georgia and the Carolinas, formed
themselves into a party for the express
purpose of capturing the uncanny be-
ing if possible. They scoured the hills
and valleys for several days and at last

EvII Deeds Are Not Eany to Do With
the Aid of These Drugn.-Some Pvp-
lar Misinformation on nthe Subject
A curious case of rol bery under
ehloroforiii which was deeded in Lon-
don not long ago was fo lowed with
great interest by writers on medical
jurisprudence. IIitherto many such
writers have expressed ijrreat doubt
about these cases, for the process is by
no meaus so easy of uso as people
Very extravagant idl is prevail
among the public as to tie power of
anesthetics, owing perha s to the li-
cense employed by novelistI when they
describe "fancy" cases in their books.
One reads, for instance of a man
In a railway carriage wav ng a hand-
kerchief before the face .,f a fellow
traveler and producing instantaneous
Unconsciousness. This is absolutely
impossible. Another imaginative writ-
er recently described a murder carried
out by pushing a towel saturated with
a powerful an;-sthetic unmier the bed-

so many people have of th- inilhalation,
and they suni up the results, showing
that very rarely can chloroormn be ad-
ministered to a sleeping person without
awakening him. Grown people are,
with the rarest exception, awakened by
the irritating fumes. If a man were
tired and if his nose were naturally in-
sensitive to unpleasant odors, and es-
pecially if he were under the influence
of drink, it might be possible to make
him unconscious while asleep. But not
even every doctor could do it. The op-
eration would require the highest skill,
and the most skillful administrator

If we take the case of spilling the
chloroform in a room and thus impreg-
nating all the air of the room. the thing
is out of the question. Yet not only do
novelists assert that this can be done,
but many people have been actually
charged in real life with doing it-for
the purpose of blackmailing them, for
injuring them or perhaps to throw off
suspicion from the pretended victim
who has committed the robbery him-
self. If the room measures, pay, 12 feet
square and is 9 feet higl4 It would
probably take a gallon of -hloroform
spilled on the floor to makela man un-

A N uBookForMen

Arrangements Whereby a Free

eder of This Paper.
For weeks the presses
havebeen busy turning
out the enormous edit-
Ion of Dr. J. Newton
Hathaway's new book-
*"Manllness, Vigor,
Health"-- necessary to
satisfy the public de-
mand. Dr. Hathaway
has reserved a limited
number of these books,
and thesehe hasspecially
arranged to send free by
mail tc all readers of this
paper who send names
and flul address to him.
For a -ears Dr. Hathaw-.y has confined hi:
practice :mot exclusively to diseases of men.
and dur that time he has restored more nien
tc health vigor, usefulness and happiness than
anv ten d ter doctors in the country combined.
Dr. ila baway treats and cures by a method
entirely is own. discovered and perfeted by
hiu-elf id used exclusively by him. Loss of
Vitality. arico-ele, Stricture, Blood Poisoning
in its ;d frent stagcs,'Rheumatism, Weak lack,
all mann# of urinarv complaints, Ulcers. Sore:,
and Skin Diseases. Blrights Disease and all forms
of Kidnel Troubles. His treatment for under-
toned mc restores lost vitality and makes the
patient al trong. well. vigorous man.
Dr. Ha1hawav's success in the treatment of
Varicocet and Stricture without the aid of knife
or cautery Is phenomenal. The patient is treat-
ed byv thlbmethod at his own home without pain
or loss of time from business. This is positively
the only treatment which cures without an oper-
ation. l) Hathaway calls the particular atten-
tion of su erers from Varicocele and Stricture to
paiIes :7. r ,. 29.30 and 31 of his new book.
Every ,,se taken by Dr. Hathaway is specially
treated a.i-ordinm to its nature, all under his gen-
erald pirs4.alsul)ervision,and all remediesused by
him are prepared from the purestand bestdrugs in
his own laboratories utinder his personal oversihlit.
I)r. lIataaway makes no charge for consulta-
tion or adi "le, eitter at his offiMe or by mail. and
when a (e eJs taken the one low fee covers all
cost of melie'ines and professional services.
lDr. llattaway always prefers, when it is possi-
ble, to hale his patients call on him for at least
one Interview, but this is not essential. as he has
cured scoit-, of thousands of patients in all sec-
tions of tlt- world whom he has never seen. His
System ofl Home Treatment is so perfected that
he can hr s about a cure as surely and speedily
as though he patient called daily at his office.

recalls no investment which ever yield-

certain little pocket match safe, which
tpost 2-, ,-ents. lie gave it to a little
monkey, Nellie by name, after putting
into it a small key to make it rattle
and some: bits of candy. -
She rattled the box and found much
pleasure in the noise. I showed her
how to press the spring in order to
open the ibox, but her little black fin-
gers werfa not strong enough to release-
the spring.
However, she caught the idea and
knew that the spring was the secret
which held the box closed. When she
found that she could not open it with
her fingens, she tried it with her teeth.
Failing lq this, she turned to the wall,
and, standing upright on the top of
her cage,, she took the box in both
hands and struck the spring against
the wall intil the lid flew open.
She wais perfectly delighted at the
result, and for the hundredth time at
least I closed the box for her to open
It again. .
The next time Nellie received the
match safe she was in her cage, and
through its meshes she could not reach
the wall. She had nothing against
which to strike the spring to force It
After looking around and striking the
box several times against the wires of
the cage, she discovered a block of
wood about six inches square. She
took this and mounted her perch. Bal-
ancing the block on the perch, she held
It with the left foot, while with the
right foot she clung to the perch. With
her tail wound around the meshes of
the cage to steady herself, F4 care-
fully adjusted the matchbox in such a
manner as to protect her fingers from
the blow. Then she struck the spring
against the block of wood, and the lid
flew open.
She fairly screamed with delight as
she held un the box.

JOHN C. TRICE, Ed. and Propr.

The Times-Union and Citizen
warns laborers not to flock to
Jacksonville at present. There
is no demand for their services
until the work of rebuilding
the city is well under way, and
it promises to let them know in
ample time when they are

Our merchants are following
their usual custom of closing at
six o'clock p. m. this year, and
on and after June 3 all shop-
ping will have to be done before
that hour, except Saturday's
and railroad pay days. This is a
perfectly proper course to pur-
sue. Clerks are human, the
same as other people, and need
a tittle recreation during the
long summer days.

Elsewhere in this issue will
be found a call for a meeting of
the Johnson's Island Prisoners
at the Re-union to take place at
Memphis. It will be an excel-
lent opportunity for these fel-
low-sufferers to get together
and exchange greetings, and
we predict that every man who
was confined in Johnson's Is-
land that attends the re-union
will avail himself of the oppor-

This has been the quietest ses-
sion of the Legislature held in
Tallahassee during the past fif-
teen years. But for the Dispen-
sary Bill and the Tampa Charter
Bill-both of which were kill-
ed-there would have been ab-
solutely no excitement at all.
Perhaps that is why we have
heard more complaints this time
than heretofore about Tallahas-
see being "a dull town." As a
matter of fact the town is not as
dull as it has been in years gooet
by-not by long odds.-

That Chicago physicians "salt
treatment" for preserving life
when all other remedies fail,
discovered about a year or so
ago and then allowed to follow
the well beaten path to oblivion
for a time, has received a new
bosst. It is said that this renme-
dy is what saved Mrs. McKin-
ley and pulled her through her
San Francisco illness, when all
hope had been given up. Thel
improvement is said to have
been marked and almost instan-
taneous from the time the treat-
ment was administered directly
into the system. This incident
suggests the querry. Why wait
until "all other remedies fail?"

It nmay be truthfully said of
this Legislature l hat ir has done
its work with less ostentation
and in a more business-like man-
ner than any session hais witlini
the knowledge of the write.
The Senate has adjourned over
from Friday to Monday every
week since thle Legislature met,
and kept right up with its cal-
endar. The house, being a lar-
ger body, has not done quite
that well, but it has found it
necessary to hold very few af-
ternoon and night sessions and
yet instead of the closing days
being characterized by a perfect t
bedlam of confusion in an effort
to rush through delayed meas-
-urers, it is doing, and has to do,
only very little more work than
has been done at other sessions.
The printed Journals will bear
out this statement.


until he has got the consent of
his colleague, Senator McLau -
rin, and they have, both resign-
ed their beats and will go before
the people asking for re-election
at a primary. This action is the
result of some trivial disagree-
ment among them, and viewed
from this distance is a piece of
By the terms of the agree-
ment the primary is not to be
restricted to Tillman and
McLaurin, the idea being that
they shall receive the full en-
dorsement of the people on
their respective positions. Pri-
mrries and elections are expen-
sive things and when officials
get to thrusting them upon
their constituents to satisfy a
personal whim it is a pretty
good time to change officials.
South Carolina may take her
que from this and elect Gov-
ernor McSweeney, who has
already announced that he will
probably be a candidate. There
are, by the way, several other

candidates already announced.

Tallahassee will now enter
upon a genuine boom-not one
of those magic growths brought
about by speculators in real es-
tate, which usually leave a
country worse off than it found
it. but a steady growth that
will in a few years make this
one of the principal cities in
the State.
The cause is' visible to the
most casual observer. The con-
struction of the Georgia Pine
and The Tallahassee South Eas-
tern Railway will open a new
route from the Southern part of
the State. Instead of going
around by way of Atlanta and
Jacksonville travel from the
West and Northwest will shift
to this route, and Tallahassee
will reap many investments
thereby which never would
have come -under the old trans-
portation regime.
Again, the competition which
these roads will naturally cre-
ate in the handling of freights
will soon establish rates for Tal-
lahassee, which our sister cities
have enjoyed for years, and
which will enable ug to convert
our thousands upon thousands
of acres of waste lands into
profitable homes for a progres-
sive industrious class of immi
grants that will come this way
as soon as the new condition of
things is known abroad.
Those members of the Legis-
lation who fought us so hard in
the House when the capital ap-
priation bill was up will be sur-
prised when they come back
two years hence-if they come
back--to see how things have
changed, how we have emerged
from the conditions they com-
plained of to a progressive,
prosperous city.

As was anticipated .the Sn-
prene Court of the United States
has sustained the administra.
tion in the Porto Rican tariff
cases-that is, in the most im-
portant of them, We say, as
was anticipated, because it does
seem that the politics of the
country have reached that stage
where the courts-even the high-
est courts of the land-are ex-
pected to sustain the power
that created them.
The cases here referred to as
the Porto Rican cases, all well
posted readers will understand
to be actions brought in the
courts of New York to test the

Women As Treasurers.

An interesting fact brought out
by the recent election in Colora-
do is the marked tendency of
Colorado men to elect women as
city treasurers. Mrs. Margaret
Robinson was unanimously
chosen city treasurer of Idaho
Springs. At Aspen, Mrs. E. A.
Kenny was re-elected to the
same office by a large majority.
Mrs. Jennie Gale was elected
city. treasurer at New Castle,
Mrs. Emma C. Palmer in Cree-
vly Mrs. Clara A. Clark at Alma.
Mrs. Mary Shanks at Ouray,
Miss Nellie E. Donahue at Vic-
tor, and Mrs. A. N. Frowine at
In several other towns women
came very near being elected
city treasurer, running ahead
of their tickets; and in a num-
ber of cities in Kansas women
were chosen to the same posi.
tion, In almost all these pla-
ces, the men outnumbered the
women; so if women are put in
office, it is because the men wish
to have it so. In these days of-
bolting bank cashiers and man-
ifold emnezzlements, perhaps
the men feel that this particular
office is safest in the hands of
the sex that is least given to
stealing and stock speculation.
Whatever may be the explana-
tion. there can be no doubt of
the fact that in the Western
States, women are in favor as0
city treasurers. A number of
women were also chosen city

There is no disease more uncertdn in ite
nature than dyspepsia. Physicians say that
the symptoms of no two eases agree. It is
therefore most difficult to make a correct
diagnosis. No matter how severe, or under
whatdisguisedyspepsia attacks you Browns'
Iron Bitters will cure it. Invaluable in all
diseases of the stomach, blood and nerves.
1-owns' Iron Bitters is sold by all deaLeri,
Biliousness is a condition charac-
terized by a disturbance of the digest-
ive organs. The stomach is debili-
tated, the liver torpid, the bowels
constipated. There is a loathing of
food, pains in the bowels, dizziness,
coated tongue and vomiting, first of
the undigested or partly digested food
and then of bile. Chamberlain's
Stomach and Liver Tablets allay the
disturbances of the stomach and cre-
ate a healthy appetite. They also
tone up the liver to a healthy action
and regulate the bowels. Try them
and you are certain to be much
pleased with the result. For sale by

A D Sg CutMHis C-e--
A writer In the Boston Transcript
giv. ths reminhiscence of the Rev. Dr.
0Ula Kellno of Harpswell, Me.:
O Sunday before his sermon the

member of the congregation will be

VWeight Of nearly 250 pounds. 'Par-
mon,' said be as they were working up
* the field near each other, TI'm goin to

"Now. Dr. Kellogg was a little man,
weighing scarcely more than 130
pounds, but he knew how to handle
a scythe, and, as he told me, with a lit-
tle shrug of his shoulders, 'he didn't
cut my corners that morning.' More
than that, the man who had thought
he could beat the parson at mowing

The Worst Paved iCHy.
Moscow is probably the worst pav-
ed city in the world. Great cobble-
stones driven by hand into a loose bed
of sand form a roadway which is al-
ways dusty In summer and muddy in
autumn, and in many of the roads
there is no attempt at a roadway of
any kind. The streets are badly wa-
tered and cleaned.
The city is regarded by the Russians
as "the holy city," probably because of
the large number of monasteries it con-
tains. It was once the capital of the
empire and still enjoys the distinction
of being considered the capital of the
interior, but there does not seem to be
any particular desire on the part of
the authorities to make it more worthy
of its title.

It Was a Thanksglving Day. and the
Cause Was Urgent.
One of the most famous of the old
Puritan divines was Dr. Mather Byles,
who was born in Boston in 1706 and
who was the first pastor of the Hollis
Street Congregational church, to which
be ministered for more than 40 years.
Dr. Byles was famous as a humorist
and wit, and Innumerable anecdotes
are related of his clever quips and re-
torts. He was a zealous Tory and
warmly advocated the cause of "the
mother country" against the colonies.
In November, 1777, he was arrested as
a Tory, tried, convicted and sentenced
to be confined on board a guard ship
and sent to England with his family
within 40 days. The sentence was aft-
erward commuted by the board of war
to confinement In his own house, a
guard being placed over him with in-
structions not to permit him to leave
his residence for a moment under any
On Thanksgiving morning, observing-
that the sentinel, who, like many of the
colonial soldiers, was a simple rustic,
had disappeared and that Dr. Byles
himself was pacing up and down be-
fore his own door with a musket on his
shoulder, the neighbors crossed the
street to Inquire the cause of this sin-
gular spectacle.
"You see," said Dr. Byles. "I begged
my guard to let me go out to procure
some cider with which myself and
family might celebrate Thanksgiving
day, but he would not permit me to
stir. I argued the point with him, and
he has now gone to get the cider for me
on condition that I keep guard over
myself during his absence."

Its Manufacture Was Practiced by
All Northern Indians and Was
Known to Those Living as Far
South as Florida and Texas.

Very few of the people to whom ma-
ple sugar is an entirely familiar and
commonplace thing are aware of the
fact that the method of making sugar
was taught to the white people by the
Indians and that they made sugar long
before the discovery of America. This
is only one of the many things that the
white people learned from the Indians.
Others were the weaving of cotton, thG
cultivation of Indian corn and the use
of tobacco.
Some of the early writers tell us that
the French were the first to make this
sugar and that they learned how to
make it from the Indian women. The
sap was collected in a. rude way, a gash
being cut in the tree, and into this a
stick was thrust, down which the free-
ly flowing sap dripped into a vessel of
birch bark or a gourd or into wooden
troughs hollowed out by fire or the ax.
Then into larger wooden troughs full
of the sap redhot stores were thrown,
just as in old times: they used to be
thrown into the water in which food
was boiled, and by constantly throwing
in het stones and taking out those that
had become cool the sap was boiled
and evaporated, and: at length sirup
was made, which later became sugar.
This manufacture of the sugar was
not confined to any ope tribe, but was
practiced by all northern Indians and
was known to those lIving as far south
as Florida and Texas. Among the
sugar making tribes a special festival
was held, which was called the maple
dance, which was undoubtedly a re-
ligious festival In the nature of a
prayer or propitiatory ceremony, ask-
ing for an abundant flow of sap and
for good fortune in collecting it.
Among many if not all the Indians
inhabiting the northern United States
maple sugar was not merely a luxury.
something eaten because it was tooth-
some, but was actually" an important
part of their support. Mixed with
pounded, parched corn, it was put up
in small quantities and was a concen-
trated form of nutriment not much
less valuable In respect to its quality
of support than the pemmican which
was used almost down to our own
Among all the older writers who had
much familiarity with the customs of
the Indiansaccounts are given of the
manufacture of sugar. and this custom
was so general that among many
tribes the month in which the sap ran
best was called the sugar month. By
the Iroquois the name Ratirontaks,
meaning tree eaters, was applied to the
Algonquin tribes, and an eminent au-
thority, Dr. Brinton, has -suggested
that they were probably "so called
from their love of the product of the
sugar maple." On the other hand,
A. F. Chamberlain has very plausibly
said "that it is hardly likely that the
Iroquois distinguished other tribes by
this term, if its origin be as suggested,
since they themselves were sugar mak-
ers and eaters."
A more probable origin of the word is
that given by Schoolcraft, in substance
as follows: "Ratirontaks, whence Adi-
rondacks, was applied chiefly to the
Montagnals tribes, north of the St.

dicautg a well imown nauw, t,, *.
tribes of eating the inner bark of trees
in winter when food was scarce or
when on war excursions."
This habit of eating the Inner bark of
trees was, as is well known, common
to many tribes of Indians, both those
who Inhabit the country where the sug.
ar maple grows and also those in other
parts of the country where the maple
is unknown.
On the western prairies sugar was
made also from the box elder, which
trees were tapped by the Indians and
the sap boiled down for sugar, and to-
day the Cheyenne Indians tell us that-
It was from this tree that they derived
all the sugar that they had until the
arrival of the white man on the plains
something more than 50 years ago.
It Is Interesting to observe that in
many tribes today the word for sugar
is precisely the word which they ap-
plied to the product of the maple tree
before they knew the white man's sug-
ar. It is interesting also to see that
among many tribes the general term
for sugar means wood or tree water-
that is to say. tree sap. This is true of
the Omahas and Poncas, according to
J. 6. Dorsey. and also of the Kansas,
Osage and Iowa. Winnebago, Tuscaro-
ra and Pawnee. The Caeyennes, on
the other hand. call it box elder water.
A. F. Chamberlain, who has gone with
great care into the question of the
meaning of the words which designate
the maple tree and its product, is dis-
posed to believe that the name of the
maple means the tree-in other words,.
the real or actual tree or the tree which
stands above all others.-Forest and

Wrote Sermons In iia Sleep.
Narrating "Some Remarkable Cases
of Double Personality," Dr. R. Osgood
Mason cites in The Ladies' Home Jour-
nal the case of a "young ecclesiastic
in the seminary with the Archbishop
- of Bordeaux, France, who was in
the habit of getting up at night in a
condition of somnambulism, going to
his study and composing and writing
his sermons in the dark. When he had
finished one page, he read it over and
properly corrected it A broad piece of
cardboard interposed between his eyes,
and his writing made no difference to
him. He wrote, read and corrected
just the same as if there had been no
obstruction. Having completed his
work to his satisfaction, he returned
to bed, and in the morning he had not
the slightest idea of what he had done
in the night and had no knowledge of
It until he saw the manuscript in his
own handwriting."

Deleseles Out of Season.

dered. "What if I do get to use ice in

Found the House.
The late Sir Frederick Gore-Ouseley,
professor of music at Oxford, was once
going to call on a friend In London and
asked a fellow musician the number In
which he lived in a certain street.
"I don't know his number," answered
the other, "but the note of his door

Bow the Man Shlte. For Assoelate
Justice of New Mexico's Supreme
Coert First Got a Surprise and Aft-
erward the Ofice.
Late in the year 1900 it was decided
by the powers in Washington that Mr.
Daniel H. McMillan, iex-state senator
of New York and for Piany years gen-
eral counsel in the -ity of Buffalo for
the Vanderbilt system of railroads, was
to be appointed associate justice of the
supreme court of New Mexico.
This appointment had been urged not
only by those who knew Mr. McMillan
in the state of New York. but by law-
yers of Santa Fe and of other cities in
New Mexico who knew of him and de-
sired to see him obtain; the place.
Toward the close of :1900, with Gov-
ernor Otero of the territory, Mr. Mc-
Millan was on a Lake Shore train
speeding toward Waslington. When
the train stopped at Painesville, 0.,
newsboys boarded it, nd one of them
called out: "All about tie new supreme
court judge of New I Mexico. Silas
Alexander appointed.", The governor
of the territory and MIr McMillan look-
ed at each other, and they bought a
paper, and in that paler they read in
glaring headlines that Silas Alexander
of Santa Fe had received the appoint-
ment to the vacant judgeship.
Mr. McMillan the morning of his ar-
rival in the capital wei t at once to the
office of the secretary or war.
"How did it happen I was not ap-
pointed'?" he asked.
"Why," said Mr. Rolt, "you are ap-
"Why," said Mr. MIcMillan, "you are
mistaken." And he 4lrew from his
pocket the Cleveland nvwsliaper of the
day before. Secretary kItoot turned all
colors. "This is a mnitake." lie said:
"an absurd, strange mistake. for I have
it from the president', own lips, cor-
roborated by Mr. Grigg. attorney gen-
eral, that your name was sent yester-
day to the senate for actionn and that
the recommendation was duly signed
by President McKinley.'
Then the men went to the state, war
and navy building and found Attorney
General Griggs.
"But you have been! given the ap-
pointment," said Mr. Grjggs.
"Then what does this newspaper re-
port mean?" was the reply.
The attorney general was dumfound-
ad. "I cannot conceive what it means,"
he said. He tapped his bell. and when
a messenger came in response he re-
quested the attendance of the clerk in
confidential relations with him, whose
duty it is to fill in upon appointment
blanks the names of those who are de-
signed for appointments by the execu-
The clerk appeared. "Mr. Blank,"
said the attorney general, "find out at
once whose name was sent yesterday
to the senate with the recommendation
by the president that he be appointed
associate justice of the supreme court
of New Mexico."
"I will look," said the clerk. He soon
returned with a memorandum slip in
his hand.
"Mr. Alexander," he said-"the man
from Buffalo."
Then a glimmering of the truth
dawned upon the group. "Are you
sure." said Attorney General Griggs.
"that the name was not MeMillan?"
"Certainly." was the reply. "The
name was Silas Alexander."
The situation was remarkable, and
time was important
The president of the United States
had inadvertently, by the error of a
subordinate, been made to set aside the
man whom he had intended to name.
There came a pause. Mr. Griggs
broke the silence.
"Well, gentlemen," he said, "the fat
Is In the fire, but we must get it out.
My subordinate has made this mistake,
and I must do my best to get it recti-

mine, for I told him to fill In the name

seeing the name Alexander and identi-
fying It with the congressman of the

Washington as coming from Buffalo,

And so the three men went to the

bWho knioked and would not be denied
And threw the rusted easements wide
And entered with the wind and sun.

gat a Little Disagreement Between
the Peppery Lovers.
"See here, Daniel," began the old
farmer when he had cornered his son
S gt by the corncrib, "what's this here
drealatin round amongg the neighbors
'bout you and Patience breaking off yer
management ?"
"Nuthin to it 'tall," with a sullen tone
and look.
"Blamed funny. I never see so much
smoke where there wasn't some fire.
Did you and her have some words?"
"I said there wasn't no breaking off,
didn't I? What's the use of cross ques-
tionin a feller like he was on the wit-
Vess stan' ?"
"Lots of use, my young man. Hain't
I tole you more times 'n you've got
Fingers and toes that my mind and ma's
mind is sot on this here marriage?
Don't our farms jine, and Isn't she a
.ely chile, and hain't you a only chile?
Hain't you got no gumtion nur com-
.non sense?"
"She said not. She said I didn't
know enough to peel b'iled pertaters
afore eatin 'em or to keep awake when
I was a-courtin of her."
"She hain't so fur wrong, either. And
what did you say?"
"I tole her she didn't have interleck
enough to talk so's to keep nobody
awake and that ef I was a-pickin and
a-ehoosin fur beauty she'd be at the
foot of the class. That's what I tole

"She ordered me to git out and said
ef she ever see me on that farm from
bencefor'ard she'd set the dogs on me,
and I tole her the dogs would have a
confounded easy time of it so fur as I
was consarned. But there was no
breaking off."
Then the old man informed the boy
that if the engagement wasn't renewed
within 24 hours he'd leave every
durnedd dollar to a sannytorium fur
fools."-Detroit Free Press.

World's Longest Stairway.
The Philadelphia city hall contains
the c ugtlest continuous stairway in the
world, and tourists who have boasted
of their muscular ability in climbing
the stone steps of the Bunker Hill
monument at Charlestown, the Wash-
ington monument or the monument to
General Brock near Queenstowu, On-
tario, will tell their friends of their
feat of ascending the ."IS steps which

which runs an electric elevator. To
reach the tower stairway the climber
may mount 245 granite stairs in the
stairways at the northern end of the
building, thus making a total climb of
743 steps.
Tower climbing is one of the fads of
tourists. Hitherto the Bunker Hill

Renurkable Power.
A dear old lady was taken one day
to a musical service In a Boston church.
She had heard much about the fine
voice of the soprano and was prepared
for a treat
She sat In rapt enjoyment until the
service was over and then turned a ra-
diant face toward her escort, who was
a young grandson.
"Dear boy." she said, "you've given
me a great treat. Hecivblee is perfect-
ly beautiful. It made ,old chills run
all up and down my spine."
"It's too bad, granlmnAmma," said
the boy, "but she didn't sing today,
though she was there. The gentleman
next me says she's beensuffering from
a bad cold, and one of th chorus had
to sing the solos for her."
"What, dear?' said the old Iady, look-
ing momentarily distressed. Then her
face cleared, and she patted his arm
"Never you mind," she said. "We
can come again some time. But, after
all, if she can make me feel that way
without singing I don't know that it
would be wise for me to:hear her. Now,
would it?"-Youth's Corppanion.

Too Profuse.
Managing Editor-Quiller writes more
than twice as much as any other man
on the staff. He realy deserves to

he ought to have it reduced. Just think
of the money he costs us in a year in
the matter of pens, ink and paper!-

itnique Methods employed to Over-
eeome Certain Disesses.
Freezing, baking, lllminating, tor-
turing, frightening and bruising are
among the accepted ways of curing cer-
tain diseases, says a writer in the Phil-
adelphia Times. For example, the bak-
ing cure: When one has a well devel-
oped rheumatism, he is placed in a spe-
cies of stove and the crystals of uric
acid are literally melted out of his body.
Another odd cure bnce tried for
rheumatism was burial in damp,
warm clay. The first rheumatic burial
took place at Menominee, Mich. The
treatment was not a success, and this
form of cure has been given up.
The freezing cure: This was first In-
troduced by a Swiss doctor, Paul Bur-
deyront. He placed his patients in
sheets immersed in ice water, packing
the patient all about With crushed ice.
This treatment is today used in typhoid
fever cases.
Or the patient is plunged into an ice
water bath. The treatment saves many
lives. Raging fever above 105 degrees
F. has been brought down by these
means to normal-98 2-5 degrees-in
less than ten minutes.
Neither of these modes of treatment
actually freezes one. A physician of
Paris. M. Figeau, introduced in 1890 an
ammonia vapor method, which really
froze the patient. The body was placed
in a chamber into which certain chem-
icals were introduced.- Ammonia gas,
by sudden evaporation, then produced
Intense cold, and the blood in the body
lost most of its heat.
M. Figeanu's method did not meet
with success. Some of his patients
suceumbld to the drastic measures,
and the practice was abandoned.

But by a little thought It will be dis-
covered that the bottom oe the wheel

In an opposite direction to that which
the carriage is advancing and is con-

Colder In Houses of the Rich an
Than In Open Sunshine.
"I suppose that the American people
and the Russians are the only western
races that really keep warm in winter.
Still those who dwell in other countries
admit that they have the same ideal by
their Inefficient effort to attain to it,"
writes Anna N. Benjamin in Ainslee's.
"The Japanese winter is most trying on
account of its continual dampness, but
the Japanese are content to remain
cold. They make almost no effort to
overcome it. The old bushidoo' (chival-
rous) idea of the 'samurai' (knights)
was that it was effeminate to feel cold,
and such is their severe training that
they do not really feel it as we do. The
wearing of some extra 'kimonos' and
the use of a 'hibachi,' or brazier, in
which are a few tiny sticks of lighted
charcoal, are the inly concessions to
winter weather. With the 'hibachi'
they never pretend to heat more than
their finger tips, which they hold over
the coals. It is used when the house is
entirely open.
"The houses, as every one knows, are
built of thin, light wood, and the slid-
ing panels which serve for doors and
windows have paper panes. They are
as apt to be open as closed during the
day. When I took my first jinrikisha
ride through the streets of Nagamiki, I
forgot my own sufferings in my sym-
pathy for this unhappy nation, which
as surely as the cold came endured such
misery from it. The coolies wear thin
blue cotton clothes and are always pad-
dling through the mud. The storekeep-
ers sit out in their open booths, and the
women go bareheaded about the streets.
In the houses of the rich the still cold
behind the closed panels is often more
intense than that outside in the sun-
shine, where the air is stirring. The
schools and public buildings are equal-
ly frigid.
"It seemed to me that the only warm
things in Japan were the babies, who
looked like bundles of gayly colored
crape. their round heads covered by
knit caps. They slumber peacefully
tucked down their mothers' backs. The
attempt to keep warm in winter is not
entirely a'modern improvement,' though
it goes with western civilization. The
Koreans do it very thoroughly, the Chi-
nese to ascertain extent. The Japanese.
as a race. continue to scorn it as they
always have done. and this is merely
one of a hundred examples which prove
that the Japanese are still true to their
traditions in their daily life and as yet
little affected in the ordering of their
homes by the ideas adopted from the

A Story Teld of AbeIl ranms. the
Beer, oad Lord Weoleley.
A good story is told of the old Boer,
Abel Erasmus, and Lord Wolseley,
then Sir Garnet Wolseley, in connec-
tion with the part Erasmus took in
Wolseley's campaign in 1879 against
Bekukuni, the chief of the Bapedis, on
the border of Swaziland. After the
capture of Sekukuni he was immedi-
ately brought before Sir Garnet Wolse-
ley, who asked him how he, a misera-
ble Kaffir, living in a cave, dared to
defy the great queen of England. The
chief replied that he had been Insti-
gated to do so by Abel lPamus.
Sir Garnet In describing the scene at
a public dinner given to him at Preto-
ria on his return from the campaign
said that he wished there and then to
let Abel Erasmus know that if ever he
found that Erasmus had been inciting
any chief to levy war against England
and he was able to lay hands on him
Abel Erasmus would hang as high as
A few days after the dinner Sir Hen-
ry Brackenbury. Sir Garnet's military
secretary, was sitting in his office
when a tall. bearded Boer entered and
asked permission to speak with him.
"I am Abel Erasmus," he said. "and
I l:ha:ive very important business to do"

the. sui;ject. Sir Garnet, however, hap-
pi,',ei to be too busy at the moment to
see anybody. and Sir Henry after re-
flection persuaded his angry visitor to
take his leave and allow the hanging
to stand over for the time.

A difficult operation was performed
the other day at the zoological gardens
at Hanover. An elephant was suffer-
ing great pain from a growth on the
lower part of one of its hind feet. and
it was deemed necessary to cut this
malformation away. In order to rern-
der the animal insensible a dose of 600
grains of morphia In six bottles of rum
was administered. This dose took
about an hour before any visible effect
was produced. The elephant then felt
over in a kind of sleep, and the opera-
tion was successfully carried out with-
out any further ado. The operation
lasted in all three days.-London Globe.

Barrymore and Modjeska.
Maurice Barrymore earned a reputa
tion as a wit and really deserved it
His style could be less suecessfu!lv
transferred to the stage, as his efforts
at comic writing showed, but in its
spontaneous phases its effect always
told. One of the stories told was about
his experiences with Mme. Modjeska.
with whom lie acted for several years
He had been as careless as he often
was on the stage, and Mme. Modjeska,
with all the conscientiousness of a
great artist, protested that he had no
right to take his calling so lightly and
that if be did not owe it to his reputa-
tion to do his best he at least owed it to
her. because she had done so much In
his behalf and had put him before the
public in a dignified and serious line of
"Why. madam," he said, "it is not
you who brought me before the public
and made me known. People had
beard of me all over the United States
when they thought that Modjeska was
only the name of a tooth wash."

A Crushed Lawyer.
Some time ago a well known San
Francisco attorney, who prides himself
upon his handling of Chinese witnesses,
was defending a railway damage case.
Instead of following the usual ques-
tions as to name, residence, if the na-
ture of an oath were understood, etc..
he began: "What is your name?"' "Kee
Lung." "You live in San Francisco?"
"Yes." "You sabble God?" ."Mr. At-
torney, if you mean 'Do I understand
the entity of our Creator? I will sim-
ply say that Thursday evening next I
shall address the State Ministerial as-
sociation on the subject of the 'Divinity
of Christ' and shall be pleased to have
you attend."
Needless to say. a general roar of
laughter swept over the courtroom at
this clever rally, and it was some min-
utes. much to the diseomiture of the
lawyer for the defense, before order
was restored and the examination pro-
ceeded upon ordinary lines.-Argonaw"

some time before. Mr. Hanks sent
Mr. C. H. Russell, the night guard,
to look the prisoner up. On reach-
ing Mr. John P. Roberts' dairy
farm, Mr. Russell learned that the
prisoner had passed through the
back yard, and asked for an axe to
cut off his handcuffs, and that he
had gone on towards town.
After that Mr. Russell had no
difficulty in tracing him from farm
house to farm house until at last he
saw him getting over a fence. He
rode up and ordered Phillips to halt,
but on grabbing him, he pulled loose
and struck at Mr. Russell. As Mr.
Russell has only one hand, he was
at great disadvantage, especially as
Phillips had succeeded in getting
rid of his handcuffs.
Phillips showed fight and struck
at Mr. Russell, who was compelled
then to use his pistol. Plhillips be-
came frightened and ran again,
when Russell shot a second time
without effect. The negro kept on

refused to help Mr. Russell capture

The popularity of Panacea
Springs will be still further en-
lianeed the coming season through
various improvements recently made
by the managers.
Among these the most noteworthy
is the new tram-way just completed,
seven miles from Sopchoppy to Pan-
acea The tourist and visitor can
now step from the railroad station
directly on the tram-car which lands
him promptly at the door of the
Panacea Springs Hotel.
The old stage ride is thereby
avoided. The new pumping machin-
ery for the large mineral pool has ar-
rived. It will be placed in position
this week, and will insure an abund-
ant supply of fresh mineral water.
A new balcony has been built
around tle( Bay View Hotel, and af-
fords a delightful place to sit on
summer evenings, as the Gulf breeze
is wafted over the water.
A new steam launch is building,
fitted up with comfortable cabin and
all modern convehiences.It is 31 feet
long, wil be run by an improved gas-
oline engine, and is intended for ex-
cursions and pleasure trips.
A bathing-beach, one-fourth mile
in length, is being prepared, where
ladies and children may have a
shelving, sandSy Leac for their sum-
mer sport.
Quick transit will lbe assured be-
tween the hotel and Rock Landing,
by means of an improved tram-way,
and on Saturdayl evenings there will
be an opwn-air ovster-bake or crab
boiling on thie ,,ach at Rock Land-
Preparations have been made for
an abundant supply of fish, oysters
aind cralbs, during tlc season from
the Gulf.
A few cottages have been built,
and others are contemplated. A
physician of experience will be on
the grounds during thle summer.
The new management has
planned numerous improvements
for the comfort and convenience of
the guest.s. Rates, however, are still

at the reasonable figures of $7 to
$10 per week, according to room.
Thle most economical investment
a person could make in the summer
season is to come to Panacea, enjoy
the change of air, the delightful
sea breeze and bathing, and deriv(
the benefit from: these health-giving
waters, rather than stay at home and
pay out money for medicines

"in the midst of life we are in

aecustomied pathway to the sza., andl
listening to this mournful symphony
of the pines, we became ('ons0sious of
the fact that one so recently here has
now exchanged the shores of time for
the shoores of eternity; or, as F. W.
Faler so beautifully expresses it-
"So not alone we lan.ild upon that

some of us also. hailing from North-
ern climes, the puzzle has been how
such splendid products of man hood,
combined with gentleness of char-
acter, could have sprung from con-
dlitions existing in ante-bellum days,
which we had Ib'en taught were little
less than seimi-lirlarous. The hest
kind of men codilnlg out from comni-
tions thie North Ihs never vet been
able to understand. As with the mas-
ters, so with the slaves: the

tionably. are those brought up) under

war, cannot compare with the faith-
ful old servants of ante-bellum davs.
How paradoxical the changes that
have occurred came to mind as with
uncovered head, we stood and saw
Genii. 11oustoun's casket carried by
(embosomed with flowers), followed
by the Confederate battle- flag fes-
tooned with a wreath. Nothing ap-
peared to us now inappropriate in
this. Yet the time was when we
could not possibly have mentally as-
