iExaminiation Frauds in Duval
ST ATESUPTSPROMPT ACTION
Results in Laying the Whole Rotten
Things Bare to the Public.
lion. W. N. Sheats, State Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction for Flor-
ida, is receiviDg the congratulations of
his many friends throughout the State
this week upon his successful ruse in
establishing beyond a reachable
doubt the existence of fraud in the
examination of colored teachers in Du-
val county in June.
For years there has been to the
practiced eye of the Superintendent, in
connection with his knowledge of af-
fairs down there, evidence of trbud in
conducting these examinations, but
when it came to securing evidence of
the fact, which under any known rules
of procedure, would convict any one of
complicity in or even knowledge of
the frauds, it became "a horse of
This time it leaked out, however, as
murder will, and before very many
people knew anything was suspected,
the evidence was in the hands of the
State Superintendent, who very care-
fully guarded it, without breaking a
seal or looking at a paper, until the
whole thing in all its rottenness was
unfolded in the presence of the County
Superintendent of Duval and a commit-
tee of investigation selected partly by
the County Superintendent and partly
by the State Superintendent.
It was so glaring that there could be
wo disputing the fact, and after only a
short resistance the County Superin-
tendent agreed to having the examina-
tion for colorel teachers declared ille-
gal and void, and all applicants for
certificates at said examination di-
rected to appear at the September ex-
maination-that is, if they still want
the story of how it was all done,
briefly told, and without going into de-
tails is as follows:
Tom. F. McBeath, well known to ed-
ucators in this section of the. State,
having formerly lived here, wa chair-.
man of the grading committee. Going
over the papers flied with the commit-
tee as those of the colored 'examinees
he found so much similarity in
the verbiage of the answers In certain
awhas and so many exact copies of
the book answers in others that he
and the other members of the commit-
tee were convinced that an organized
plan of fraudulently answering the
questions had been successfully worked
all through the examinations.
The grading committee, through Mr.
McBeath, communicated these facts to
Mr. Sheats, who, suspecting that a
demand would be made upon the com-
mittee for the papers, at the first indi-
cation of an investigation, directed
that they be sent to him here.
Sure enough, a demand was made,
but the papers being beyond the jur-
isdiction of the County Superinten-
dent, he could do nothing.
The latter part of last week State
Superintendent bneats went to Jack-
sonville and summoned the grading
committee before him. The papers were
then opened and the irregluarities and
impossible similarities pointed out to
The Duval County Superintendent
was then called in, a committee of in-
vestigaion selected by him 'and Mr.
Sheats and the merits of the case taken
When fifteen papers presented by as
many examinees were shown to be
exact copies of each other as regards
spelling, punctuaion, capitalization
and paragraphing, the State Superin-
tendent proposed to the County Super-
intendent that if he would bring in two
or three of the fifteen examinees who
had answered exactly' alike, and they
could re-write in the presence of the
investigating committee even the sub-
ject mater of the answers, he would
Stop the examination and allow the
certificates to be given, if the County
Superintendent would accept the prop-
: sition of fraud if they failed.
The County Superintendent had all
along contended that the similarity of
the answvprs was a mere coincidence,
due so(lyv to the wonderful memory of
the negro race, and their ability to re-
Peat verbatim book answers. This,
therefore, was a proposition he could
not very well refuse to accept.
A messenger was sent out for the
examine-s, but could find only one of
them-a negro woman. She responded,

LIEUT. PHILBRICK SICK.
Lieutenant E. E. Philbrick, who, to
gether with Major C. A. Dunham, was
in charge of the relief Emergency Hos-
pital ,on Adams street, was taken sick
yesterday, and was obliged to take to
his bed. The duties imposed on the
physicians at the relief hospital were
arduous, and Dr. Philbrick's illness is
not thought to be serious, and it is
hoped that his recovery will be rapid.
Dr. Philbrick is quartered in the tent
he formerly occupied, together with
Major Dunham, who is giving him at-
tention. All the patients have been re-
moved from the other tents, and the
canvas will come down. The last pa-
tient was removed Saturday afternoon.
He was Frank Jackson, the negrc
whose spine was dislocated. A most
successful operation was performed on
Jackson by Drs. Dunham and Philbrick
and the man is now expected to gel
well. The tenth and eleventh verte-
brae of the spine had been knocked out
of place, but by a process of corseting
with plaster the injury was almost
completely remedied. Jackson was
taken to his home.

credit of his deciding to locate in this
city. Mr. Papy assisted him to find
desirable quarters to begin his work

rented the new "hose" house recently
erected by the City Council near the
city market, and will temporarily oc

Onht the Ocala House porch Tuesday
nightte of discovery was the chief
Seouvers0tion. Among the
Personliam gathered there was Dr. Wil-
liam Anderson. The doctor has spent
most of his life on the seashore, and
is a lover of old ocean. He has a
brother in the navy and is himself an
excellent sailor. He says that when he
trst came to Florida he was told that
there was an "oil slick" off Cape Ro-
mano covering such a large area that
ituring the most tempestuous storms
t never becomes disturbed, and the
Sponge fishers flock there fn great
numbers, and however wild the waters
may be raging around them on the
bosom of this "slick" they always find
a haven of perfect safety.
Joseph A. Reynolds and his son,
Henry LI Reynolds, living about two
miles south of Ocala, believe they are
living directly over an oil or natural
gas deposit. Some years ago they
dug a well to the depth of eighty-five
feet In a few hours an oily scum
would form on the top of the water
drawn from the well. It was undrink-
able for man and beast. The well had
to be abandoned. The man who dug it
was from the oil regions of Pennsyl-
vania, and declared it as his belief that
this scum was oil. which could be
struck if the well coul4 be bored deep
Another story is told that the late
Dr. Daniel A. Vogt, an uncle of Al-
bertus Vogt, was having a well dug
on his plantation not far from the
Reynolds place by a colored profes-
sional well digger. The man lived
some distance and knocked off work
Sone Saturday at noon and did not be-
gin operations again until the next
Tuesday morning. He was let down
into the well and before reaching the
bottom gave the signal to be hauled
up. Ere this could be done he was
completely asphyxiated, or to use the
term then in vogue, "was overcome
with foul air." When the man was re-
suscitated and before going down
again, a bundle of fodder was set on
fire and thrown into the bottom of the
well to purify it. The "foul air" ig-
nited and burned for a considerable
time. It is now believed that this
"foul air" was natural gas.
Still another story comes from Port
Tampa. It is said that the Plant Sys-
tem artesian well there was bored by
a man who had had great experience
in boring wells in the oil regions, and
when -a flow of water was obtained
the oil indications were so great he
tried to persuade the management to
permit him to bore four or five hun-
l-red feet further down, giving it as his
belief that a genuine oil gusher would
be the result. But the management-
stated that they were after water ani1
And yet another story is told by
Editor C. Y. Miller, of the Dunellon
Citizen. He says he was driving two
Pennsylvania Dutchmen from Dun-
ellon to Gulf Hammock, and when
crossing a small stream one of them
got out of the vehicle and made a
superficial examination, and remarked
to the other one, "John, if there is
not oil here, then I am very badly mis-
taken." The other one replied that the
"indications certainly looked that
who are putting out their good money
In securing options on supposed oil
lands, are receiving the commissera-
tion of a good many of their friends.
It may be history repeating itself. In
the early days of the phosphate ex-
citement the same state of feeling ex-
isted. Many of his friends believed
that the late and lamented John F.
Dunn had "lostjhis head," and was
recklessly .throwing away his money;
that he would wreck his bank and fi-
nally end his career in disgrace and.
ruin. Being a close friend of many
years' standing, the writer was selected
to hold a conference with him and try
and "check him in his wild career."
We cornered him one day in the rear
of the Ocala House and plead with him
with tears in our eyes almost as big as
horse apples. He was very much
amused. In a few days afterwards the
Dunellon Phosphate Company was or-

Washington, June 29.-It is stated
on authority which leaves little doubt
of its accuracy, that Secretary Hay
will not leave the Cabinet at pres-
ent, desirous as he may be to return
to private life, but will remain until he
has again submitted to the Senate a
treaty for the construction of the Ni-

is known that Mr. Hay is by no means
satisfied with the attitude of the Ad-
ministration on a number of points,
and would have resigned during the
last campaign had it not been feared
that his retirement would have inured
to the injury of the Republican party.
At present he is seriously disgruntled
by the light-hearted way in which Sec-
retary Gage has embroiled the United
States with Russia (with which coun-
try Mr. Hay has striven so hard to
cultivate the warmest relations), and
has then stepped from under, leaving
it to the Sate Department to straighten
out the tangle. At the same time Mr.
Hay is very desirous of having his
name linked wih the building of tne
Nicaraguan Canal, and has at last
reached a basis of agreement; within
Great Britain which will, he thinks,
be acceptable to that country and will
also pass the scrutiny of the Senate.
This treaty, it is understood, does not
differ materially from the amended
Senate Treaty, except that it offers re-
ciprocity with Canada as a quid pro
quo for surrendering her alleged rights
under tht Clayton-Bulwer treaty.
The neglect of Congress to continue
t-e "48-hour provision" of the post-
office appropriation bill has resulted in
causing a good deal of trouble to the
department, trouble which, under a
recent decision of the Postmaster-
General, will now be transferred to the
people of the country. According to
this, the postoffice now goes back on
the old eight-hour day for carriers for
six days in the week. This means that.
under no circumstances can a carrier
be worked more than eight hours a
day. It he is out on his route deliver-
ing his letters and finds his eight
hours are up, he must return to the
-office with his mail anI notify the su-
perintendent of carriers. Under the
present law .a carrier can be worked
48 hour; a week, so that all routes are
covered, the overtime oeing charged
in. Ueder the new law mail not de-
livered: in eight hours will go over
until -.e next day. This action has
upset the schedule in every office in the
country, and especially in large of-
fices like those of New York, Pniladel-
phia, Boston, Chicago, Baltimore and

Secretary Gage has been addressed by
Senator Lodge anI others'in reference
to the removal of the Democratic Sec-
retary of the Board appraisers in New
York and the appointment of Mr.
Lodge's Private Secretary in his place.
One of Mr. Lodge's colleagues recently
wrote a "peremptory" letter to Secre-
tary (age ordering him to make this
change and Senator Lodge himself
called the Secretary up on the 'phone
and "demanded" to be informed why
the change *had not been made already.
'I he letter and the telephone message
were insolent, going far beyond the
line of permissable haughtiness and
contempt Possibly if Secretary Gage's
column of vertebrae had been thicker
and more rigid he would have resented
the affronts. He shrunk frontm the quar-
rel with either Senator, for :it is noto-
rious that a spoil-hunting Senator

Mark anna'ss efforts to secure har-
mony in Ohio differing so radically
from his usual methods, have started
a.. sorts of conjectures as to whether
he is already laying his wires to have
a solidly harmonious state behind him
when the National Convention names
a candidate for the Presidency in 1903.
If hq is not after this, Waphington is
at a loss to know what he is after.
He is not noted for being a forgiving
person, yet he went out of his way to
bury the hatchet with his old enemy,
Ex-Mayor McKisson, and caused his
convention to praise Senator Foraker
up to the skies and endorse him by
name for re-election. The 'only expla-
nation that Washington can think of
is that Mr. Hanna intends to be the
candidate of Ohio in 1903, and to se-
cure fair treatment at the hands of the
Foraker faction, consents to bury old
animosities and tie Foraker to his
chariot by making the senior Senaor
his candidate for re-election. Without
the help of Hanna every one knows
that Foraker could not get back to the
Senate. If re-elected with Hanna's aid
common decency will compel him to
help send a Hanna delegation to the
convention of 1903 and probably go
there in person to make a nomination

SYSTEM IS ALL WRONG.
Prince Murat Plantation,
Leon county, Fla., July 1, 1901.
Editor Tallahasseean: Please allow
me the space to show wherein you are
wrong in trying to defend the city gov-
ernment in the unjust discrimination
against the farmer, and show you
what a great evil it is both to the
buying public of Tallahassee and to
the farmers. It has but one redeeming
feature, it helps to pay your taxes, for
the market house stalls are rented
for about four times the amount that
would be asked for the same floor
space accommodations by a private
individual, a clear profit to the city
of 300 per cent. on the investment.
This the farmer has to pay, for the
butcher must buy his meat on foot
cneap enough to meet this terrible rent.
It amounts to about *i2 per beef, when
it ought not to exceed 50 cents, mak-
ing the "unjust discrimination" cost
the farmer $1.50.
It has nmade the butcher the monarch
of all ae surveys. .ere are only so
many stalls, and no more, and the
half dozen men who rent them run
your market pretty much as they
please. There is no competition,
either in price or quality outside this
They pay what they please to the
farmers and sell what they choose to
you. You are like the boarder when
the servant used "Rough on Rats" to
raise the biscuit; you can eat it or
leave it. You must buy your beef
there. The city fathers say you are
not capable of telling good beef ana
mus- e protected! The State Board of
health h gives you ample protection. If
there is any protection in the pres-
ent market system the farmers have
not seen it Last winter I took the
pains to fatten two beeves very nicely,
out the syndicate of butchers would
only give me $12 each for them. If
I had the privilege of an open market
they woula have brought twice that
amount, but the butchers knew I must
either accept their offer or let my stock
die of old age. The local stock mar-
ket has a black eye, and cannot re-
cover from it under the present system.
v hen a piney woods steer will bring
as much as a stall-fed one that cost
twice as much to produce, who is go-
ing -o raise good ones?
We believe the consuming public
know good beef and are willing to pay
what it is worth were tney permitted.
Three-fourths of the beef offered by
your market comes from the piney
woods. Now, a ewe-necked, cat-
hammed, wire-grass, pine-straw-fat-
loss, a fair grade at a fair profit, and
a first-class thing at a good profit, and
is -satisfactory to all concerned. Leon
county is capable of producing as good
beef as any county and the farmers
would gladly supply it. We can give
you as nice beef as Armour or as
Swift, but we can't do it for $8 to $12
per head, and have grown so tired that
many of us have looked for a more
friendly market than the syndicatee"
offers. This gives Thomasville and
other sister towns a territory of five
to ten miles more than the distance de-
mands, and causes more money to
pass through your postoffice to buy
goods out of town than goes into the
till of any one concern in Tallahassee.
A man generally buys where he
sells. If he must hunt a foreign mar-
kei.he will buy at one. It is not the
lack of the home customers, but that
the home customers are prohibited
from buying from us. He bought Mr.
Billingsley's hams and woulu have
I know of a Tallahassee merchant
sending thirty miles for a Georgia
farmer to bring him hams. Tallahas-
see is a good ham market. It will
be just as good a beef market when
our erring city dads see the error of
their "unjust discrimination." It
would have been just as easy for the
Georgia farmer to have sold hams with
maggots at the bone as to sell "rotten
beef." The rascality lies in the man,
not in the article he sells. Ask any
boarding house or motel man why he
prefers to buy his poultry and vege-
tables directly of the farmers. He will

Every woman loves t tohik of the
time when a soft little body, all her
own, will nestle in her bosom, fully
sati-sfying the yearning which lies in
the heart of every good woman. But
yet there is a black cloud hovering
about the pretty picture in her mind
which fills her with terror. The
dread of childbirth takes away much
of the joy of motherhood. And yet it
need not be so. For sometime there
has been upon the market, well-known
and recommended by physicians, a
which makes childbirth as simple and
easy as nature intended it. It is a
strengthening, penetrating liniment,
which the skin readily absorbs. It
gives the muscles elasticity and vigor,
prevents sore breasts, morning sick-
ness and the loss of the girlish figure.

to hitch stock to, I have been forced
to go to the back yards of stores to

In a case that came before a famous
lord justice some time ago the counsel
for the prosecution in the evidence had
to mention a "blouse."
The judge asked what a blouse was,
and it was explained that this was part
of a lady's dress. But the case came to
a dead stop for the time. for the jrdge
did not know which part. and after
some hesitation the barrister admitted
that he wasn't sure. Several learned
brothers gave their opinion, some opin-
ing a blouse was the upper half of a
lady's costume, while others insist l it
must be the lower half. The entire
court, filled with learned celebrities
whose heads held all the laws of Brit-
ain, from pitch and toss to manslaugh-
ter, argued it out. but nobody was sure.
The judge thought it was the lower
half, but a junior barrister who .atd
lately been married said he th;uglht
that that half was called kiht lbut
did not feel certain. At h a lady
was called, who set the con. right.
Another odd dilemma happened not
long ago when in the Hobson "horse
faking" case the word "fetlock" arose.
A fetlock, as everybody knows, is the
ankle of a horse. The court asked
what it was, however, and the prose-
cuting counsel was nonplused. The
witnesses were out of court save one.
and he knew nothing. The judge
thought a fetlock was a sort of hind
knee. otherwise "hock," but one learn-
ed brother was quite certain it was the
lock of hair that hangs over a horse's
forehead. The defendant's solicitor
opined it was that part of the harness
which slips over the tail, the crupper,
and another legal celebrity agreed with
the judge. Finally the court bhad to call
a stable groom to clear up the mystery.
In a case that was settled some years
since the recorder was brought up
short by a phrase used by the counsel
for defense, who spoke of a transaction
concerning a pound of blackleadd."
This is a common and useful article.
but the counsel on being asked to ex-
plain its nature said it was a black
substance used for boot polishing. The
recorder thought it was a mineral used

In inviting Governor Jennintags to de
liver an address before Tammany Hall
to-day-July FOurth-the great city of
New York has extended to Florida ax"
honor never before enjoyed by this
State. It is also a distinction for
which our talented young chief execu-
tive will be envied by many- an old
"war horse" throughout the country.
The Governor has accepted, and will,
'of course, acquit himself in a manner
befitting the high station he occupies
and ingratiate "the land of flowers" in
4the hearts of his hearers.
The casava product of Florida bids
lair to become one of its staple articles
'of commerce. It is a valuable article,
whether produced for manufacturing
_purposes or stock feed, and the
farmer who grows it can make prof-
itable if time Is taken to provide its
use in one way or the other or both.
-As an article of commerce its value is
known. As a feed crop it is worth as
much or more consumed on the farm.
'The bulk of the cassava crop of Lake
'county is grown at Grand Island,
"where the former are satisfied with
the success they have achieved in
:making and selling this valuable pro-
'The home merchant is the man who

you to pay the taxes that run your

merchant is the man to whom you ap-
peal in time of distress for favors.
Then why should you ignore him
when you desire to make a purchase?
He sells goods at as low figures as the
-man wao does business in the big city.

is to the home paper you must look to

Senator Mallory announces that he
has entirely regained his health, and
will stand fot re-election to the United
States Senate for a second term, and..
one of his home papers, the Journal,
referring to this fact says: "There is
an unwritten law in politics that when

In another column is a notice of the
Florida State Fair and the things ne-
,cessary to make it a success. It goes
without saying the progressive people
-of this section do not have to be re-
minded a second time about a thing of
so much importance to them as indi-
viduals and the State as a whole. They
will, we are confident, spare no pains
or expense in getting up a creditable
exhibit. Only in that way can we ex-
pect to keep pace with other sections
in the race for the location of invest-
ors who are seeking just such places to
.make their homes and develop the
waste places. Let every farmer, while
harvesting his crop, save and carefully
preserve the very best of everything
to send to the Fair.
It is a well-known fact that a great
many .people who never gave the sub-
ject of law-making an hour's study in
their lives think they can direct the
government of affairs better than those
who have devoted time, research and
hard study to it. It is in fact, but un-
fortunately so, a popular hallucination,
for the reason that prejudices are cre-
ated thereby that become harmful to
communities. The trouble is they only

thenceforward become less frequent-
that it will be possible to pick up a
Florida daily paper without seeing two
or three accounts of murder.
We devote considerable space this
week to the reproduction of articles
from the State press relative to the
discovery of oil In Florida-or more
properly speaking, the discovery of al-
leged surface indica*ons of oil. It may
be that nothing will be developed fur-
ther than these small local hubbubs, but
that is not certain, .et, as much as
many are scoffing the idea of a Florida
oil gusher. Only a few years ago th
thought of extensive phosphate mines
in this State seemed just as ridiculous.
There is nothing like investigating
these things. Natu '. has done much
for us that is yct unknown. Future
generations, vhile enjoying the frui:s
of nature's bounteous stores of inex-
haustible wealth in this State, will
wonder that we lived so long in the
m.-st of them without attempting to
develop many of them. Let us get all

was, and within the memory of the
present generation, too, when the day
was ushered in by the booming of
cannon In every city or town of any
importance, and the firing of smaller
guns at every cross-roads or other
place of public gathering.
Every youngster 'was up by the first
dawn of the day, joining with his
wee, small voice and other noisy in-
struments, such as fire crackers, etc,
in making the welkin ring with some-
thing like the hilarity that greeted the
announcement one hundrel and twenty-
five years ago that America was free-
that the well-organized soldiers who
had crossed the seas to make tyranny
over our forefathers complete, were
returning, a dejected, whipped army.
But with other changes which time
has wrought has also come a change
in our methods of celebrating the day.
In many places now the booming of
cannon and the pop, pop, pop of the
fire cracker are no longer heard on this
occasion. True, the day and its signifi-
cance is still impressed upon every
youth in the land, from infancy to the
end of earthly existence, but instead
of the noisy celebrations that formerly
'made it as memorable as Christmas, a
few of us now retire to some shady
spot on the lake or seashore and en-
joy a day of picnicking, and, others
stay at home and attend to business
the same as,#ether days.
The latter is, we believe, regrettable.
Nothing can so impress occasions like
this upon rising generations as the ol
way of celebrating, and then, too, gen-
eral holidays, when all the people
"shut up shop" and get together for
a day of recreation and intermingling
with each other are becoming entirely
too scarce. It is true that we have
more holidays now than before. That
is really our trouble. Legal holidays
have become so common in law that
entirely too few people pay any atten-
tion to them-except bank, postoffice
and other public men. They all re-
member them. and observe them, that
is they abstain from all labor on all of

the laws were strictly enforced.
It is not the fault of the Council that
they are not enforced. Like a Legisla-
ture, it is the duty of the Council to
maxe laws, and the duty of the muni-
cipal executive officers to enforce them.
We do not know who is at fault in
this instance, but we do know that if
the city ordinances were strictly en-

FAIR PLAY'S A JEWEL.
The St. Louis Republic thinks there
is certainly good cause for the aston-
ishment and indignation of the Italian
Government, due to the action of Sec-
retary of the Treasury Gage in im-
posing a countervailing duty on Ital-
ian sugar on the ground that "it ap-
peared highly probable that sugar pro-
duced in that country received indirect
Italy has, continues the Republic,
equally good cause to join with Rus-
sia in a protest against this action,
and in threatening a retaliatory war
on American goods and products ship-
ped to Italian markets. Through the
Italian Embassy at Washington a for-
mal notification has been made to Sec-
retary Gage that Italy pays no bounty
on her sugar. This information could
have been obtained by the Secretary
of the Treasury, and to much better
advantage, before he took the foolish
action which precipitated the present
trade crisis. The next step on the part
of the Italian Government will be the
filing of an official protest against
The chief menace of the situation is
that the Secretary of the Treasury is
himself doing all in his power to
strengthen that hostile sentiment
which may yet lead to a European
trade alliance against this country cer-
tain to prove most costly to American
exporters. On behalf of the Sugar
Trust Mr. Gage seems to have taken
up weapons against the world. It will
be strange indeed if the Governments
thus discriminated against shall fail
to strike in return as effective a blow
as is possible to them.. And a very ef-
fective blow is possible.
It will be encouraging to pqee the
next Congress manifest towardaEurope
a spirit of greater friendlini- a .nd
willingness for a just recipro ty witch
may tend to overcome the bad spirit
created by Secretary Gpge's .foolish
policy. We are now more than able
to compete with the world on even
terms. What Europe objects to is an
American policy of tariff discrimina-
tion against European products and
manufactures coincident with an Am-
erican entry into European markets
relieved of anti-American discrimina-

The English are wonderful people in
many respects, and in many ways the
english press is entitled to the same
distinction. Here is an article from
the London Spectator of recent date,
which perhaps more fully sets out this
fact than anything we could say:
"In the matter of truth speaking, as in
wine drinking, no one can define what
moderation means, though we all be-
lieve that in our own persons we illus-
trate the word. But, granting this
vague moderation, we are prepared to
maintain that a certain number of
false formulas are necessary for the
defense and maintenance of the spirit
of sincerity and truth. We all have
entered into a tacit agreement that
under certain circumstances we will
deceive each other for our common
comfort, and if any large number of
people took to avoiding these defens-
ive forms and spoke on all occasions
nothing but the naked truth then social
world would have to be made over
again ,and we think the new one would
be worse and less ingenuous than that
in wnich we live.
"After such a revolution society
would have to revise its list of penal
offenses, and at he 3ead of the new cat-
alogue would stand, we imagine, cur-
iosity. The rules about not asking
questions, which now only .apply to
royalty, would hai e to be universally
observed. "I shat't tell you," is a
phrase which will pot always defend a
secret, and, apart from that, if con-
stantly resorted to, would be apt to
produce social friction. One would
hardly dare to ask a friend to dine in.
so many words if it were not permis-
sible for him to make the false reply
that he was sorry but he was engaged
and could not come. Ordinary social
intercourse, instead of becoming more
direct, would have to be carried on by
an elaborate system of hints; other-
wise society would become, metaphori-
cally speaking, a bear garden in which
sensitive persons would be battered .o
death. It would be impossible to get
used to being told "I do not like you,
and your friends bore me," or "I could
come quite easily but I do not care to
identify myself with the very second-
rate people among whom you live."
Neither could we improve matters by
allowing guests to invite themselves.
The rebuff of being refused hospitality
would be almost unbearable."
We ought certainly to feel grateful
to our London cousins for this piece
of information. We had always labor-
ed under the impression that truth was
the one thing that, if practiced in all
walks of life, would not only emanci-
pate the peoples of the earth, but build
for them castles in the great beyond.
And, joking aside, we cannot say that
we are yet convinced of this new doc-

HOW TO REDEEM STAMPS.
With the expiration of this month
the present revenue law wul go out of
effect and the law enacted by the last
Congress will become effective. The
result will be many changes in the
use of documentary and proprietary
stamps and a general reduction in rev-
enues. The public has a very good
understanding of the changes which
are to be made in the use of stamps,
but there is considerable doubt in the
minds of those who have stamps to
redeem as to how the government will
rule upon the matter. A circular

thought when she withdrew from the
post of president of the Cambridge
Women's Liberal association that she
was going to retire from public work,
so her acceptance of the position in the
settlement is received with much grat-
ification. Miss Gladstone and her fa-
ther were the closest friends, and she
often served as a "special private sec-
retary"' to him.
Girls With Poor Velee.
The most noticeable defect in an oth-
erwise excellent dramatic performance
recently given in this city by a set of
college girls was in the matter of
voices. Of the large cast there was
just one young woman who possessed a
voice of anything like requisite quality.
Her was both rich and carrying, and
It was an added pleasure to listen to
her lines as she spoke them from the
-contrast with the others.
Thin, throaty tones or, worse, those
with a distinct nasal intonation are bad
enough to the sensitive ear when used
In the key of ordinary conversation.
When It is .needed to expand such
voices to the declamatory point, then
lack of volume, displacement and mel-
biinb are painfully evident.
aithful practice may do much to
correct faults of emphasis and inflec-
tion, but the most sanguine coach will
not undertake to make over a poor
voice in the course of three or even six
weeks' rehearsals. The possibilities of
the speaking voice are beginning to be
understood. Parents are discovering
that it Is a wise plan to cultivate in
their daughters and their sons, too, for
that matter, an agreeable voice for the
speech of life.
Instructors in the art of developing
the exquisite mechanism and wonder-
ful capability of the human speaking
voice are springing up on every side.
It cannot be long before it will be a
positive reproach for a woman of edu-
cation at least to speak in shrill. nasal
or unplaced tones.-New York Sun.
A Lovely Nuraery.
Quite unique in the women's section
of the Glasgow exhibition is the model

No one needs to be told to try to cem
a cough. But any one will be glad to
be told of a means of cure which will
be thorough and lasting. Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is a medi-
cine which can be confidently relied
on to cure diseases of the organs of
respiration. It cures obstinate, deep-
seated coughs, bronchitis and bleeding
of the lungs. It cures when nothing
else will cure, and the local physician
says: "There is nothing more that we

The dealer, tempted by the little more
profit paid by less meritorious medicines,
will sometimes try and sell a substitute
when the "Discovery" is asked for. No
substitute medicine will satisfy the sick
like "Golden Medical Discovery." It
always helps. It almost always cures.
"Two years ago a severe cough started on me
and I was also bothered with catarrh," writes
Mr. P. Skjod, of Danewood, Chisago Co.. Minn.
"I could not sleep nights, as the cough was
worse at night. I tried several cough medi-
dcines. bat to no avail, until a year ago, when I
got so bad I could not breathe through my nose
at times. I then tried Dr. Pierce's Golden Med-

Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, and at
the same time using Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy,
I am a well man. I can thank Dr. Pierce for my
Zod health, and will recommend his medicines
to any one suffering from the same trouble."

The GolJ Girl's Shoes.
The smart girl who golfs is wearing
a pigskin shoe. This takes the place
of russet leather and is more durable,
says the Milwaukee Sentinel. It is a
light skin shoe and is'stitched with tan
or with black. The latest wrinkle is
to have the stitching match the shoe-
laces or the laces match the stitching,
so that with a shoe stitched with black
there are black laces, while the shoe
stitched with tan has tan lacings.
Cruase Amonor te Fiords.
Queen Alexandra dearly loves the
-Aa, and she has planned a yachting
cruise among the fiords for her smnmer
holiday. The king's engagements will
forbid his accompanying her, but the
Princess Victoria and possibly the
Princess Charles of Denmark will
share the trip.
Last summer two little girls in a
College ave-nue family were repeatedly
remonstrated with by their indulgent
mother for playing bareheaded in the
sun. "You will be burned so badly,"
said she to them finally, "that people
will think you are black children." Her
warning had little effect, however, and
she gave up trying to keep their hats
One day she sent them to a neighbor

quiries concerning a washwoman. Mrs.
S.. the neighbor in question, mistook
them for tie children of a Mrs. Black
who lived in another street nearby.
"You are -the little Black children,
are you not?" she asked.
"Oh, no." came the prompt response
from the elder. "Only sunburned."-

BOTH OF THE PARTICIPANTS WERE
QUICK ON THE TRIGGER.
An Enforeed Parade Preceded the
Gu* Play. Which Was on the Pull

Glad He Lost His Right Hamd.
"The wost affectionate looking two

a Colorado gentleman In one of the
house committee rooms, "was the one
that happened at La Junta, in my
state, between 'Big Divide Jim' Brat-
ton and George Gannon, as piszenish a
pair of real bad men; of the type that
has now passed away. as ever fanned a
.45 or twisted a Bowie.
"Gannon was the proprietor of the
Gilt Edge honkatonk In La Junta, and
it was at this place that he had some
trouble with Bratton. The argument
ended by Bratton backing out of the
door with his hands up, Gannon having
the drop. Gannon didn't shoot then be-
cause his gun wasn't loaded. He had
been cleaning it and had forgotten to
replace the cartridges. He'd have killed
Bratton otherwise as a matter of
"That same night Bratton sent word
to Gannon that he meditat"d shooting
him up some on the foll I ng day.
Gannon wasn't a man to tane to the
cliffs or the cactus, having plenty of
notches on his gun barrel himself, and
be walked around the next afternoon
like a light battery pf artillery. 'Big
Divide Jim' Bratton bulged him. how-
ever, by turning a corner suddenly as
Gannon paraded down the main street.
and then it was Gannon's hands that
went up for a change. Bratton had
two guns covering him, and Gannon
knew his gait.
'This,' said Bratton. 'is where I get
Ian even break for my coin. Now, you
like me so much. Gannon. that I want
you to sort of show your appreciation
of me by walking around town linked
arms with me for awhile.'
"It was up to Gannon to comply with
this peculiar request. 'Big Divide Jim'
Bratton jabbed his guns back into his
belt. and then he clutched Gannon's
left arm and passed it through his
right. The disadvantage of this ar-
rangement accrued to Bratton. It left
Gannon's gun arm tfee. while in case
of argument Bratton would have to use
his left gun. But 'Big Divide Jim'

THE PIANO AT ITS BEST.
Four Times a Year None Too Often
to Have a Piano Tuned.
"There are plenty of people." said a
piano tuner, "who let their pianos go
one. two. three years without tuning,
and In some cases pianos thus neglect-
ed may not get very. very woefully off.
but a piano should be tuned every three
months. Thit would be none too often
to keep It in order.
"As a matter of fact, a piano begins
to get out of tune again at once after
It has been tuned. How could it be
otherwise? Nothing stands still This
difference would at first be so slight as
scarcely to be perceptible to any but
the practiced and sensitive ear of an
expert tuner, but it is there. Doesn't a
clock begin to run down as soon as it is
wound up? Four times a year a piano
ought to be tuned, but only a compara-
tively small percentage of people give
their pianos that attention which is
needed to keep them in their most per-
fect loveliness of tone. Piano makers
and dealers of course are looking after
the tuning of their pianos in stock
scrupulously and carefully all the time.
You don't hear pianos out of tune In a
piano wareroom. They never let them
get out of tune there. They aim, in
fact. at keeping them as near perfec-
tion as they can.
"We are pretty sure to find in every
new piano something pleasing aud at-
tractive. Some share at least of t
pleasing quality comes from Its being
in perfect tune. In fact, to keep any
piano at its best it must be kept ji
tune, and to attain the results most sat-
Isfactory to all, to the owner and the
neighbors alike, a tuning tonic should
be administered to every piano not less
than four times a year."-New York

Drunkards are Being red Daly

No Noxious Doses. No Weakening of
the Nerves. A Pleasant and Posi-
tive Cure for the Liquor Habit.
It is now generally known and
understood that Drunkenness is a dis-
ease and not weakness. A body filled
with poison and nerves completely
shattered by periodical or constant use
of intoxicating liquors, requires an
antidote capable of neutralizing and
eradicating this poison, and destroy-
ing the craving for intoxicants. Suf-
ferers may now cure themselves at
home without publicity or loss of time
from business by this wonderful
"h-JMIJ GOLD CURE, which has
been perfected after many years of
close study and treatment of inebri-
ates. The faithful use according to
directions of this wonderful discovery
is positively guaranteed to cure the
most obstinate case, no matter how
hard a drinker. Our records show the
marvelous transformation of thou-
sands of drunkards into sober, in-
dustrious and upright men.
WIVES CURE YOUR HUSBANDS!!
CHILDREN CURE YOUR FATHERS!
This remedy is in no sense a nostrum,
but is a specific for this disease only,
and is so skillfully devised and pre-
pared that it is thoroughly soluble and
pleasant to the taste, so that it can be
given in a cup of tea or coffee with-
out the knowledge of the person tak-
ing it. Thousands of drunkards have
cured themselves with this priceless
remedy, and as many more have been
cured and made temperate men by
having the "CURE" administered by
loving friends and relatives without
their knowledge in tea or coffee, and
believe to-day that they discontinued
drinking of their own free will. DO
NOT WAIT. Do not be deluded by ap-
parent and misleading improvement.
Drive out the disease at once anu for
all time. The "HOME GOLD CURE"
is sold at the extremely low price of
one dollar, thus placing within the
reach of everybody a treatment more
effectual than others costing $26 to
$50. Full directions accompany each
package. Special advice by skilled
physicians when requested without
extra charge. Sent prepaid to any part
of the world on receipt of One Dollar.

Bergen bad spent 48 hours in a Turk-
ish bath, eating nothing whatever.
When he reached the track, he was so
weak that a stimulant was necessary.
The one drink of whisky he took so
demoralized his faculties that he could
scarcely keep his seat In the saddle.
"Such a violation of physical devel-
opment at the age when a boy should
be most rapdldfy maturing makes It'dlf-
ficult for a Jockey ever to become ro-
bust. Moreover, the mere riding of a
race is a terrible drain on the nerve
force of a Jockey. A boy may lose a
pound of weight in a hard race."
Did Not Speak With Knowledge.
On a clear and beautiful Sunday
morning in a parish not far from Mil-
waukee a priest was pleased to note
the presence at service of an unusual-
ly large number of the male members
of his congregation, and. since he had
been Informed of considerable trouble
in his flock, he considered it an oppor-
tune time to give those present a
friendly, yet pointed, sermon on for-
bearance. He charged the men, par-
ticularly the married men, to be ever
kind, courteous and considerate to wo-
men, to overlook all' opportunitiUes for
trouble, to be good' to them and so-
licitous of their welfare, and finished
with a masterly peroration relating to
connubial decency on the part of hus-
Shortly after he met an old and re-
spected member of the church and

STwo men zigzagged unsteadily down
Long street the other morning shortly
after midnight. It was a case of "unit-

course was trying to steer the other
safely home. At length No. 1 came up
against a pole and held fast. No. 2
tried in vain to pull him forward. Then
No. 1 became Impatient at the other's
obstinacy and spoke very frankly:
"Shay, you're-hie-you're a shump-
thash what you are! I've seen worse
men 'n-hie-you In Jail!"
This was more than No. 2 could
stand. He felt that his honor as a gen-
tleman had been sullied, and, bracing
himself stiffly, he replied, with spirit:

Don't Belleve All Yo Hear.
A man In a railway carriage was
snoring so loudly that his fellow pas-
sengers decided to awake him. One
particularly sensitive old gentleman
shook up the sleeper with a start.
"What's the matter?" he exclaimed.
"Why. your snoring is annoying ev-
ery one in the carriage," said the old
"How do you know I'm snoring?"
"Why, we can't help but hear it."
"Well, don't believe all you hear."

friend of mine had a little clock that
had behaved itself and kept good time
for years. One day it took a notion to
lay off for awhile, and they couldn't
get It started again. My friend's wife
was cleaning the room several days
afterward, and she took the clock and
laid it down flat on its back on a chair.
It started to go at once and ticked
away at a great rate, but as soon as
she placed It on end It stopped again.
Well, they set it. and for a time it act-

its back. But It soon got cranky again
and refused to go. The other day. Just

Sleeping Car Ethile.
It seems that there is an unwritten
code of sleeping car ethics which has
its fine distinctions. The International
says: "The seasoned traveler enters
the Pullman as if it were a room in a
club with which he is familiar, but
which he has not visited for some time.
He stows away his belongings, accord-
ing to his habit, puts on his traveling
cap and a pair of light shoes or slippers
and overgalters, gets out his newspa-
pers and book and. not forgetting his
smoking outfit, is ready to be com-
fortable. Be it remembered that if
slippers be donned they must always
be accompanied by overgaiters for
without these latter the slippered foot
is not permissible under the unwritten
law of sleeping car travel."
When California Was Uukxown.
In an old geography printed in 1815
appears the following: "California is a
wild and almost unknown land.
Throughout the year it is cover4!with
dense fogs, as damp as unhealthfuL
In the interior are volcanoes and vast
plains of shifting snows, which. some-
times shoot columns to great heights.
This would seem nearly incredible
were It not for the well authenticated
accounts of travelers."

How thankful we should be for one

much we've lost during the past week
and then go cheerfully to meeting.-
