Rev. A. I.. Woodward's Eloquent
Oration at Unveiling Ceremonies.

Suniday afternoon, at Bethel Ceme-
tery. the Woodmen of the World un-
veiled a monument to the memory

Jackson. A large attendance of Wood-
men and tbhir friends from this city

'onltisl Commander, Sovereignsl
andl Frienls-We learn from the sa-
cred writings that from time immem-
orial it has ieeli the custom of man-
kindi to buih altars antd erect mon-
ul'einld, to coinmemorate great and
important events. and to transmit to
posterity the record of mighty
a.hiev.iments. Thus Noah, after he
had been miraculously preserved by
the interposition of God himself
from the great deluge which had
drowned an entire world, erected an
altar unto the Lord anu offered sac-
rilice thereon, "and the Lord smelled
a sweet savor." and .ae offering of
Noah was well pleasing in His sight,
so lie flug with Ills Almighty fin-
gers Lne glittering bow of promise
Thwart the clearing skies, and as-
sured the children of men that He
would never more curse the earth
with a deluge.
And Abraiham, the father of the'
faithful, after God had made him that
wonderful and well nigh incredible
promise, that his seed should be as
the sand of the seashore in numbers,
and as theft uncounted host of the
starry firmament in multitude, build-
ed an altar to the God in whom he
trusted to teach to his children and his
children's qhildreu the sublime lesion

sf the stones which had formed his
pillow and builded therefrom an altar
to testify to succeeding generations
his belief in the promised Redeemer.
Turning from sacred history to pro-
fane, we find that fromi t-e earliest
uawn of time it has been a favorite
pastime of kings and emperors to
erect colossal monuments of solid
granite or enduring marble to com-
memorate the mighty deeds of their
royal ancestors, or to perpetuate their
own glory and renown to ages yet un-
born. Hence for well nigh five thou-
Uand years the sad-eyed Sphinx has
gazed in hopeless silence across the
tawny-desert sands, and the massive
Pyramids have reared their hoary
summits in Egypt's rainless sky,
striving to tell in long forgotten lan-
pguage to the awe struck visitor the
wondrous deeds of those whose mum-
mies sleep below; while the slender
column of Cleopatra's needle points
upward to the unknown eternity to
which these mighty ones have gone.
But it was only the great, the royal
and the rich for whom such moun-
ments were made to stand. The hum-
ble and the poor died like the beasts
die, "unwept, unhonored and unsung,"
and their names perished from off the

LI ai SuI IU ormiMUUonutay aiternooniUU, a ne-
gro girl was struck and instantly killeJ
by the lightning. She was sitting by an

standing In the street near Mr. W. R.
Wilson's residence. The stroke knock-
ed him senseless, and tore one of his
shoes (which were new ones).from his
feet. ie was at first thought to be
paralyzed by the stroke, but has since
recovered. The sqm3 flash followed the
telephone wire into Mrs. A. C. Spiller's
residence and destroyed the telephone,
knocking off part of the weather
boards of the house in its passage out.
Mrs. Spiiler most fortunately was not
injured. The telephone at Coi. "Hen-
derson's house was also burned out.
All of which goes to saow that we can-
not be too careful to safeguard our-
selves during an electrical storm.

The announcement of the death of
Mrs. E. A. Brokaw last Friday morn-
ing brought sorrow to the entire com-
munity, mingled with a feeling of con-
solation that he who doeth all things
we'l had r-lieved her of earthly suf-
ferings and taken her home, to enjoy
throughout eternity the reward of an
earnest, faithful Christian life.
Few. women enjoyed a wider ac-
quaintance of, could claim a larger cir-
cle of friends, yet time had not dealt
kindly with her, as we mortals view it.
Reared and maintained in luxury
through the span of an average life,
her declining years were constantly
menaced by illness and affliction.
Through it all she was the same
charitable, loving soul that former
generations had known, always having
more regard for the woes of others
than her own distress.
While death -as in this instance
removed from us a life worthy of em-
ulation, it certainly must have been a
blessing to her.

This body held a meeting this morn-
ing in Judge W. S. Bullock's office and
accepted the resignation of Mrs. M. J.
Turner, a teacher in the primary de-
partment of the Ocala Graded High
School, and elected in her stead Miss
Ettie L. Cam, of Cenlreville, Leon
county, Fla., who comes recommended
very highly as a successful teacher,
and one who has attended the DeFu-
niak Normal and was a brilliant grad-
uate this season of the Peabody Nor-
mal, at Nashvh..e, Tenn.-Ocala Daily

Keeping pace witn the general ten-
d6ncy of our business men to spread
out and enlarge their business, Munro's

the right of the Filipino to self-gov-

address to the graduating class of
Radcliffe College the other day to
disparage self-government for wo-

warned the college girls against wo-

of Hon. Dudley Foulke at a recent

"If you have any friends who are

ty, the enterprising prospectors of this
section have worked quietly, prosecut-
ing their investigations with certainty
of existing oil. For years geologists
have believed that the oil could be
secured in this county, and when the
oil fever burst in all its fury in Marion
county this assertion was renewed
with more interest and activity.
Within a few miles of ihis city, so
a gentleman yesterday informed the
reporter, about four years ago he had
a well sunk upon his property. He
noticed a strong evidence of oil upon
the water, and on one occasion act-
ually thrashed a colored boy for
pouring kerosene into the well, be-
lieving it to be one of his mischievous
acts. The thrashing had little effect,
however, for the oily surface and taAte
remained intact, and the party finally
was compelled to abandon the well,
when he sank another within a few
hundred feet with the same result.
There being a number of colored peo-
ple in the section, he finally gave up
his effort in disgust, as he felt positive

This prospector filled a five gallon
jug with the water and sent it to an
expert foranalysis when Thursday he
received a report. He would not en-
lighten us as to the analysis, but ex-
nibited a letter from the chemist as-
suring him that the contents of the jug
contained an unusually high percentage
of petroleum.
The owner of this property, who
does not desire yet that his name be
made public, is one of the best known
busniess men in this county, a gentle-
man prominent in manufacturing cir-
cles. He believes confidently that he
can strike a "gusher" within 3,000 feet
which will yield a bountiful stream,
and proposes within mte course of the
next thirty days to begin operations
of boring.
It is believed, and the theory has
been advanced by geologists, that Flor-
ida is composed of what might be
termed a "backbone" of the Apalachee
system of mountains. This "backbone"
is composed of flint rock and other
composiuons which go to produce min-
eral, and from which the petroleum
and natural gas is extracted. This de-
posit is formed on an incline of about
fifteen degrees, and extends through
the centre of the State, the main body
of which is about five miles to the

In discussing the use of beer as a
substitute for the stronger alcoholic
liquors, the Scientific American em-
phasizes its injurous effects as follows:
For some years a decided inclination
has been apparent all over the coun-
try to give up the use of whisky and
other strong alcohols, using as a sub-
stitute beer and other compounds.
This is evidently founded on the idea
that beer is not harmful, and contains
a large amount of nutriment; also that
bitters may have some medicinal qual-
ity which will neutralize the alcohol it
These theories are without confir-
mation in the observation of physic-
ians. The use of beer is found to pro-
duce a species of degeneration of all
the organs; profound and deceptive
fatty deposits diminished circulation,
conditions of congestion and perver-
sion of functional activities, local in-
ifammations of both the liver and kid-

changing all the higher faculties into
a mere animalism, sensual, selfish,
sluggish, varied only with paroxysms
of anger that are senseless and brutal.
In appearance the beer drinker may
be the picture of health, but in reality
he is most incapable of resisting dis-
ease. A slight injury, a severe cold or
a shock to the body or mind will com-
monly provoke acute disease, ending
fatally. Compared with inebriates who
use different kinds of alcohol, he is
more incurable and more generally dis-
eased. The constant use of beer every
-ay gives the system no recuperation,
but steadily lowers the vital forces.
It is our observation that beer drink-
ing in this country produces the very
lowest kind of inebriety, closely allied
to criminal insanity. The most dan-
gerous ruffians in our large cities are
beer urinkers. Recourse to beer as a
substitute for other forms of alcohol
merely increases the danger and fatal-

Superstition That .In Rife EvTe
Among the Educated Fair Sex.
It doesn't seem possille that in this
enlightened age supers tion could be
rife among the educated, but there are
nevertheless a number of young wom-
en who converse fluently, if not elo-
quently, in three languages, and who
read Spencer and Browning and Emer-
son. but who place a dreambook with
their Bible on the table beside the bed
and consult it in the morning the first
With a credulity worthy of a negro
manimy, if their sleep has been visited
with unusual visitors they seize this
volume as soon as their eyes are fairly
open and. look for an (Xplanation. If
misfortune is foretold by It, the seeker
after knowledge assumes 'a bravado
she is far from feeling. "I don't care,"
she says to herself, by way of bolster-
ing up her courage. "I am not super-
stitious, anyway, and I don't believe in
such arrant nonsense." But she's nerv-
ous just the same for days until her
troubles have driven this mythical one
out of her mind.
There's one young woman known to
the writer who never dreams of a
young child without shivering and
shaking for'days after in fear of some
dreadful thing happening to her. She
has not consulted a dreambook on the
subject, and so she doesn't know how
Infants and bad luck became connected
In her mind, but nevertheless, after she
has had a visit of this sort while sleep-
ing, she says prayers of unusual length
and then makes up her mind to be pa-
tient under afflictions sore.
She is an intelligent woman, mind
you, but she doesn't attempt to explain
the terror that besets her at this par-
ticular dream. She doesn't call herself
superstitious-of course no woman
does, not even tlhe one who wouldn't
walk under a ladder-but her friends
do and make light of her until she ex-
poses s.ome fetich of theirs. when the
subject is carefully avoided afterward.

Japanese Legend of Emperor Chual
and Hi Valiant Wife.
Seventeen centuries ago the Japanese
Emperor Chual was playing his lute
in the presence of his wife and prime
minister. Whether oi account of the
music or from some ther cause, the
empress became inspired with a divine
afflatus and began to utter the thoughts
put into her mind by the deity. "There
is &. land to the westward," she ex-
claimed. "and in that land is abun-
dance of treasure, gold and silver, daz-

says 0. W. Wakefield, of Columbus, Ga.

bottles of it to my customers to their
entire satisfaction. It affords a quick

The emperor pushed away. his lute.
"If you go up to a high place and look
toward the west," said he, "there is no
land to be seen, but only. the great wa-
ters. They are lying spirits who have
spoken to you."
Then the good god was filled with
anger, and again he moved the empress
to prophesy. "You are not fit," she
said, "to rule this empire. Go the one
But the prime minister trembled
when he heard these words and said to

The Slowness of Starvation.
During a prolonged fast the loss of
weight is unusually rapid at first and
decreases as the time goes on. Death
ensues when a certain percentage of
the loss has been reached, and this per-
centage varies according to the origi-
nal weight. Fat animals may lose half
their weight, thinner ones perhaps two-
fifths. A man or woman of rather
spare build weighing 143 pounds
might, therefore, lose about 55 pounds
before succumbing. Children die after
a fast of from three to five days. dur-

An Idea of Mars.
"As for me." said M. Flammirion,
speaking of the inhabitants of Mars in
The National Magazine, "I rather envy
themi-a land where it is always beau-

nor cyclones, where the years are twice
as long as ours. where the kilogram is
of 376 grams and where, therefore, men
and women who here weigh T0. kilos
there weigh only 2G.6 and where, In a
word. everything Is lighter, more deli-

And in another place he goes fur-
ther. pointing out that if the Martians
wished to communicate with us they
would have doubtless made the effort
many times in the past and probably
long ago abandoned It, deciding it a
hopeless business to attempt communi-

makes her right hand talk to her left."

saying the Landlord.
The proprietor of one of the new
apartment houses near Fifth avenue
has paid a rather heavy penalty for
having a cartoonist as one of his ten-
ants. The artist wanted some changes
made in the decoration of his apart-
ment, and the proprietor declined to
make them. The proprietor's features
are pronounced, and he wears long,
flowing side whiskers. .His face. dis-
torted to suit the cartoonist's fancy,
has appeared nearly every week in one
of the comic papers. Sometimes the
proprietor figures as the villain and
again as the countryman who is bun-
koed every week in the pages of this
publication. The cartoonist lets the
whiskers grow from week to week;
then. just as his victim imagines that
they will grow so long that his friend
will not recognize him, the artist trims
the whiskers down again. The propri-
etor of the apartment house has con-
cluded that the only way in which he
can get even with the cartoonist is to

The Ohio Democracy maae a e-
tacle of itself by hiring the men ion
of W. J. Bryan's name and tram ing
upon a picture of him which some n-
thusiastic supporter was ind ieet
enough to display at an inoppor ne
moment In return for such trea ent
at the convention's hands, Mr. Biyan
Protests against the desire of his fol-
lowers to bolt, and urges them to up-
port the nominees on the State ticket.
Mr. Bryan had already repeatedly
announced 'his intention not to be a
candidate for the Presidency again,
and therefore could not in any sense
be an issue before the convention.iThe
action en, under the circum-
stances, wts, to say the least, inex-

The platform deals with both State
and national issues. It charges the
Republican State administration wiLd
mismanagement, extravagance and
corruption, especially in the disposal
of valuable franchises, with subserv-
ing to corporations and trusts .ind a
general disregard of the rights and in-
terests of the people.
It demands- .&e abolition of the pro-
tective tariff system and the substi-
tution of "a tariff for revenue so lev-
ied as not to burden' one industry for
the benefit of another." It demands a
strict enforcement cf all laws against
combinations in restiraint of trade and
recommends the most practical of all
preventive and remedies of trusts,
namely, that all trust products shall be
placed upon the free list.

"Florida Day" at Ute Buffalo Expo-
sition will be September 7th. This
- date has been agreed upon by the nian-
* agement of the exposition in response
to a personal request from Editor B.
B. Tatum, of the Miami i.ietropolis,
who,. as president OL the Florida Press

Association, went to Buffalo to arrange
an outing for the "press gang."
It is now proposed that instead of
going alone as they have been nereto-
fore doing, the editors arrange for a
special train and take with them their
friends. It is thought that a rate so low
for the round trip will be secured that
many Floridians will take advantage
of it to visit the exposition.
This is certainly as it should be.
Florida is fairly well represented at tue
exposition in the matter of exhibits.
But every other State in the South is
.having a special day on which its at-
tractions are especially called into
notice and on which its citizenship is
conspicuous for its attendance.
Florida cannot afford to be left out.
Then we have an excellent opportunity
of getting our attractions before the
public, not only by means of the ex-
hibits themselves, but through the
hundreds of press representatives on
the grounds. Get ready to go along
with your local newspaper man, and
help "whoop 'er up" for Florida Sep-
tember 7th.

Pensacola, and in fact, a large slice
of the South, is rejoicing over the es-
tablishment of a new steams-ip line
from New York City to Pensacola. The
first ship is scheduled to sail from New
York next Monday, and regular weekly
sailings both ways will follow.
The difference in freight rates .to be
established by the new line for At-
lanta, Ga., it is said is as follows:
First-class, standard rate, $1.14; new
line. 99c.; second-class, standard, 98c.;
new line, l5o.; third-class, standard,
86c.;' new line, 73c.; fourth-class,stand-

The man wno obeys the laws of the
id seldom ever finds it inconvenient

A sneaking evasion of the law is not
considered honorable by Cnristian
people, and an open repudiation of it
has been adjudged by the courts to be
anarchy. Even if such a law is bad
it is better to obey it until the law-
making power can be importuned to
repeal it. That is the most honorable
as well as the safest way to get around

It is an easy matter to make up one's
mind that the law is a force, --e offi
cials down upon the community, and
the obligation upon humanity to obey
them not binding. But trouble is like
ly to grow out oi such a decision in the
long run.

The report of the Emergency Hos
pital in Jacksonville will be found be
low. It will be of special interest t
many of our readers, because Majo
Dunham was ably assisted in thi
work by Dr. E. E. Philbrick, oa thi

be seen from a glance at the report
itself, as follows:

other scientific divisions of the U. S.
Department of Agriculture were to be
advanced to bureaus. This was pro-

gress, which appropriated for .ae ex-
penses of the Bureau of Forestry dur-

These figures show how rapidly the
forest work of the Government has ex-
panded of late, and also now well it
has commended itself to Congres..
--..ere was a time when the practical
value of the scientific investigations
carried on by the Government was not
lully under stood, and farmers were
inclined to think that the money spent
on experiment stations and chemical
laboratories was of very little benefit
to them. Now the case is very differ-
ent The improvements in agriculture
due to tie work of the Department of
Agriculture have increased the value
of the farm products of the country by
many millions of dollars annually. As
this kind of work has proved its prac-
tical utility, Congress has shown it-
self generous toward it. The readi-
ness with which Congress has increas-
es the appropriations for the Division
of Forestry is the best evidence that
forestry has proved its importance
from a business standpoint. '
ne change from a Division to a
Bureau, and the larger appropriation,
wil make possible both an improved
office organization and more extended
field work. The Bureau will be pro-
v.ded wi.- a much larger office force
and will be organized in three Divis-
, ions. But field work, not office work,.
is what the Bureau is organized fir.
This work has been going on during

The U"barens Practlee of "Cap-
pin" Suektlmg Humanity Still Ha
Its Adherent. -The Operation a
, 8 what Delleate One.
One hundred years ago the sovereign
balm for every ill, from fainting to fe-
ver. was bleeding. The wonder is that
a human, race was left to admit the
folly of the practice. It was the cor-
rect method of the day, recommended
and employed by the best physicians of
the time. The surgeon who attended
George Washington in his last Ill:ess
first set about bleeding his august pa-
tient. The story is that he took several
cups of blood from the vigorous arm of
Washington and then diagnosed the
case. Washington died. Some say hat
If he ha# not been bled he probe bly
would have lived.
The cry comes, But that was a en-
tury ago! In sharp contrast stand the
wonderful advances made by mm ern
surgery. Thankfully it may be did
that such is the truth. But some es
customs die hard, and today the ioc-
trine of "cupping" has devotee as
faithful as those who gave up eir
life sustaining fluid in Wash 1n's
time. This is a startling state et.
The writer would have been ske cal
if he had not learned its truth hielf.
In the seventeenth and eight nth
centuries this grewsome form of t at-
ment was the work of the barber. hat
guild has maintained its prerogati in-
to the twentieth century. In a certain
little side street in New York, crushed
between two towering brick buildings,
stands a timid story and a half fame
house. The suggestive striped pole
which emblazons the art of the dwller
within juts over the walk. In the .win-
dow hangs a sign bearing the word
"Cupping." If today were set back to
1700, the pole alone would tell the sto-
ry. Times, they say, have changed,
and so the sign. I
The barber is a German. He was
much surprised at the question aiked.
Everybody knew that cupping was a
necessity, especially in the spring, he
said. Sometimes, he added, he wits so
busy that little time remained for his
shaving and hair cutting of customers.
"Ach, yes," said the barber, "it feeps
me a busy man. How strange yoi say
that you thought it no longer was
practiced. People come here mon ting,
noon and night every day, but nfostly
do they come here in the spring and
alL It is then that the blood peeds
drawing off. If you have a pain in
your head, you come to me. I take my
little cup, burn the air in it out. push
down my little knives just behind your
ear on the neck, and when the cup is
full I take it away. If your headache
is not better yet, I take another cup. so
be it that the bleeding stop not,,upon
the other side. Maybe your back pains;
I cut you a little on the side. Your arm
pains; I draw the blood from'your
The barber bared his arm. The skin
was crossed with tiny, paie nicks, like
those one sees on the wrist of a, mor-
phine victim.
"Twelve is the number of caps I
draw at one sitting," the barber said.
"It is a bad pain that will not be gone
then. If you cqme again the next day
with the pain. I draw off more until the
ache has disappeared completely"/'
The cups look like sherry glasses
with the stems removed. The knife,
or lancet, is arranged like a name
stamp. Pressure on a spring plunger
drives the little blades, which are ar-
ranged in pairs or triplets, into the
skin. It is here that the skill of the
operator comes into play. When the
incisions are made in the neck too vio-
lent, a tap on the plunger might mean
the severing or wounding of an artery.
Pressure too light would not let the
blood flow fast enough. The barber
must have a trained touch.

Upon the condition of the cup much
depends. The air is exhausted by
means of a tiny. alcohol flame. This
makes a vacuum. The cup is pressed
on lightly, but firmly. The blood rush-
es under the skin beneath its rim; then,
like a flash, the little knives are pushed
down, and the bleeding begins. The
operator never takes more than 12 cups
at one sitting. That would mean per-
haps a half pint of blood.
This system of bleeding for human
ailments harks back to the earliest
times. All through the middle ages it
was the healing balm for the sufferings
of mankind The ancients firmly be-"
Jleved that the loss of* blood in this
manner drew from their systems the
"noxious humors" which afflicted them.
The advent of the modern school of
medicine and surgery did away with
the process as a universal therapeutic
-measure. It was not until the nine-
teenth century was nearly half com-
pleted, however, that physelians aban-
doned it as a practice.-New York Trib-

A Trait of the Sex.
A traveling man who had been ab-

There isn't a man who would be seen
running through the street munching a
piece of pie. Why not? Because it
would mean dyspepsia and stomach
trouble? Not at a1; but because it
wouldn't look well. As a matter of fact
many a business man snatches a lunch
in such a hurry that he might as well
take it on the run. That is one reason
for the prevailing "stomach trouble"
among men of business.
There is a certain remedy for diseases
of the stomach and other organs of
digestion and nutrition. It is Doctor
SPierce's Golden Medical Discovery. The
worst cases of dyspepsia and catarrh of
the stomach have been cured by thip
medicine. It cures where all other
means have failed to cure.
"I took two bottles of Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Dicovery for stomach trouble," writes

Winding Timepieces.
"I have been doing a Uttae figuring
on time," remarked an erratic citizen
yesterday, "and I have reached some
rather interesting conclusions. I want-
ed to find out how much time man con-
sumed in keeping tab on time, and 1
found that, if the whole world is con-
sidered in the computation, years
would be crowded into a second of
"To illustrate what I mean, take a
city where 100,000 watches are wound
up every day. Now, it takes probably
an average of 15 seconds to wind a
watch. It would take, then, 1,500,000
seconds to wind 100,000 watches. This
would mean 25,000 minutes or 530
hours and 10 minutes, or 25 days and
16 hours. I suppose there are in the
city of New Orleans 100,000 watches
and clocks to be wound up every day,
so that nearly a month is spent in the
city every day in winding watches and
"One man in a year's time would con-
sume 5,475 seconds in winding his
watch if he is prompt about it and is
willing to give 15 seconds every day
to this useful article. This would
mean several hours during every year
that he kept up the practice. Allowing
35 years as the average life, a man
would spend 191,525 seconds, or 3,190
minutes and 41 seconds, or 530 hours
and 10 minutes, or 22 days and 20
hours, in winding his watch."-New
Orleans Times-Democrat.

Wbat She Saw.
It was at the Normal school that this
happened, and the class laughed. It
was a laugh on the teacher, too, but

he didn't get angry, although it did
break fmto the serious contemplation of
serious studies with which he was tvy-
ing to interest the students.
It was in the study of psychology,
and they were discussing what ideas
first entered the human mind when cer-
tain words were spoken or written-
whether the mind thought of one cer-
tain object designated by the word or
the whole general class which is em-
bodied In that word. To experiment
on this mental phenomenon in order to
bring it more' clearly to the attention
of the students the professor said he
would write a word on the board and
then let one of them tell Instantly what
impression wts made upon her mind.
He called upon one of the pupils to
be ready to think quickly and tell ex-
actly what her first thought was after
she saw the word which he was about
to write. He stood close to the board.
so that the word was hidden by his
shoulders until he turned. He wrote
the word "pig." and all of the class
saw It except the girl who was stand-
ing ready to make reply. When he
turned, he didn't get out of her way.
and she couldn't see the word. In re-

Europe's lee Supply.
Few perhaps among the tourists who
visit Norway for the pleasures of its
scenery are aware that here they are at
the headquarters of Europe's ice sup-
ply. To the mountain lakes of that
country the continent looks for ice.
The ice is of the finest quality, for the
lakes are of crystal clear water, high
up In the mountains, and are surround-
ed by very tall pines. The ice supply
Is controlled by syndicates.
After having been cut into great
squares by plows the blocks of ice are
sent down the mountainside on slides.
On the way they acquire amazing ve-
locity and plunge into an inclosed pool
beyond which are the ice ships await-
ing their frozen cargo.
It sometimes happens that through
delay in the starting of the vessels or
the cutting of unusual quantities from
the lakes to supply exceptional de-
mands the supply runs short. Then it
is that Ice becomes dear and even in
winter time is a luxury that must be
indulged in sparingly. But ice is used
in Europe far less commonly than in
America, and a deficient supply does
not occasion the sense of loss that it
would cause in this country.-Youth's

Gilbert Islands Tipple.
Neither tea nor coffee is drunk in the
Gilbert Islands, but liquor named kar-
afee, or toddy. It is the juice of the
cocoanut tree, from which it is drawn
daily at sunrise and sunset. To ob-
tain it the natives climb up the tall
trees and while extracting it keep up a
constant, yelling to let those below
know that they are at work. The sap
when fresh Is a harmless and delicious
beverage, but after it has been kept a
day or two fermentation sets in, and it
becomes intoxicating. Karafee does
not, however, fly to the head, but a
man who drinks it to excess loses the
control of his legs. However, when
this befalls a native he has sense
enough to remain indoors and shows
his face to no one, for if his chief

The Inventor of the Flouring Mill.
About the year 70 B. C. M1ithridates.
king of Cappadocia, one of the most
Ingenious and able princes of the time,
invented the first mill driven by water.
This triumph of his skill and ingenuity
he caused to be erected in the Imme-
diate vicinity of the royal palace. In
the course of time the Cappadocian
bakers became celebrated and were in
great demand throughout all parts of
the world as then known.
These mills were usually placed up-
on boats on the river, being so elevated
and contrived as to be easily driven by
the water, and the millers were thus
enabled to move from place to place,

A Professional Blunder.
"I am satisfied now that I have made
a professional blunder in your case,"
the physician said, noting the symp-
toms of his patient.
"A blunder, doctor? Don't I seem to
be improving fast enough?"
"You are Improving too fast. Your
malady had begun to interest me ex-
ceedingly, and I wanted to see what it
would develop into if allowed to run,
but I stupidly gave you a prescription
that has knocked it entirely out of your
system."-Chicago Tribune.

A Startling Sermon.
Once when Father Ilonore, a cele-
brated Capuchin of the seventeenth
century, was preaching on the vanity
of the world he suddenly produced a
skull, which he held up to view.
"Speak!" he cried. "Were you not per-
haps the head of a magistrate? Si-
lence gives consent." Then, clapping
upon the skull the cap of a 'judge, he
continued: "Ah, ha! Hast thou never
sold justice for gold?. IIast thou never
been snoring many times duri-!g a hear-
ing, etc.? How many magistrates have
sat under the fleurs-de-lis only to put
virtue at a disadvantage?"'
Casting aside the skull, he held up
another, which in like manner he ad-
dressed, "Wast thou not perhaps the
skull of one of those beautiful ladies
who occupy themselves only with
catching hearts after the manner of
bird catching?" Then, arraying it in
a headdress, he continued: "Ah, ha,
Empty head! Where are those lovely
eyes which cast such fascinating
glances, that pretty mouth which shap-
ed such gracious smiles, that made so
many unhappy ones to weep In hell?
Where are those teeth which chewed
upon so many hearts only to make
them more tender for the devil's eat-
ing?" and so on, bringing forth skull
after skull and appropriately decking
them to receive his reproofs.

Dates at Which These Birds Were
W Imported into This Country.
I have been asked several times late-
ly at what d(late the common English
sparrows were imported into the Unit-
ed States and by whom.
It sectn ; that the first attempt was
s de in 18.S by a private citizen of
* ]r tland, Me. In the fall of that year
Se liberated six sparrows, and they im-
mediately made themselves at home
in his garden and outbuildings. For a
few years these birds and their de-
seendants were seen in and about the
town in small squads. These birds
multiplied until in the winter of 1871
& flock of them appeared in every near-
by town, thus showing their tendency
to spread over adjoining territory.
About 18600 12 birds were imported
and liberated near Madison square,
S New York city, and this was repeated
te for several seasons.
SIn 1864 the commissioners of New
York liberated 14 birds in Central park.
About this time numerous persons re-
I touring from abroad brought a few
birds home and set them at liberty in
Sal about Jersey City.
S The craze for importing these birds
spread, and in 1868 the city govern-
Sent of Boston imported a great num-

sad others were brought over. The
ids which survived from these va-
rios importations were carefully fed
l d looked after by the city govern-
In 1869 a thousand were Imported
amo liberated in the city of Philadel-
pial, and soon the birds spread over
all adjacent territory.
About this time the Smiths~nlan In,
titution became interested in bringing
tue birds to this country, so they im.
listed 300, but most of them (lied. In
1871 the same Institution brought over
another lot, and they were successfully
tared for.
From this it is seen that toe birds
have started from a number of points
and were not one or two implrtations
to New York, as is usually su posed.-

During last May an infant child of our
neighbor was suffering from cholera ic-

hopes of recovery. I took a bottle of
Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diar-

I felt sure it would do good if used ac-
cording to directions. In two days time
the child had fully recovered. The
child is now vigorous and healthy. I

from the manager down, being able to
supply a legible equivalent for the
mysterious characters, a messenger
was sent into the barber shop with the
screed. .
Waking with a start, and supposing
that the boy had brought an answer to
his dispatch, Mr. Greeley took the
paper, scanned it for a moment, and
then, with a look of deep disgust, piped
out: "What blamed idiot wrote this?'

Diplomacy aF Pine Art. ,
Diplomacy is a fine art, and in I's
successful practice much depends upon
the observation of social conventions.
Some of the most successful diplomats
seem to spend most of their time at
dinners and parties, apparently doing
nothing .but enjoying themselves, but
in reality serving well their countries.
In truth, the reputation of a country at
a foreign court and ofttimes its wel-
fare in important issues depend very
largely upon the social abilities of its
minister, for the man who is popular
socially is very likely to drive a better
international bargain than his unso-
ciable brother. This Is well understood
at Washington, and the selectica of a

Burn on the hearth before me bright;
The fire their captive spirit frees:
Musing, I watch it take its. flight.
Bow swift the flames of gold and blue
Up from the glowing logs aspirel
There yellow bird and bluebird flew
And oriole, each with wings of fire.
Now in the hearth light, on the trees,
Stirs something they and I have heard.
Ah, is it not the summer breeze
Come back to us with sun and bird?
Poor summers, born again-to diet
Quickly as they have come they go.

The Games That Were Played In the.
Eighteenth Century.
After the advent of the house of Han-
over the favorite games at court were
t"quadrille," an improvement of "om-
bre," and "commerce." The gains and
losses of the kings and queens were, as
a rule, restricted to 100 guineas, but on
Twelfth Night it was customary for
thousands to change hands. On one
occasion Lady Cowper, a lady in wait-
ing, refused for the sake of her chil-
dren to take part in the game, as none
sat down to the table with less than
About the year 1740 a rage, for
"whisk," or whist, set in, but at first
it was considered too wise a game for
ladies to join in. IIume, the historian,
never went to bed without his whist,
and even the great Johnson regretted
that he had not learned to play cards.
In 1742 "Hlorry" Walpole finds it abso-
lutely necessary to learn "whisk,"
"having waited in vain for its being
left off." We find him in another let-
ter threatening to build an altar to
"Pam" to commemorate the escape of
his charming Duchess of Grafton, who,
It appears, had been playing cards in
Rome when she ought to have been at
a cardinal's reception, where the floor
fell in and all the monsignores were
precipitated into the cellar!
Cards were so very much in evidence
in his time that even invitations were
frequently issued and notes written up-
on the backs of playing cards, which
on that account were Usually plain,

ladies of title, Mordington and Cassells,

order to intimidate the peace officers

the public gaming houses by them.-

Greeley's Awful Writing.
It is interesting to recall the fact that
Horace Greeley left behind him a very
frank criticism of the legibility of his
own chirography. Being up town in
hNew York one day, and wishing to
send a telegram and also to get shaved,
he entered a hotel and sent his dis-
patch. Then, passing into the barber
shop. he sat down in a chair and (ac-
cording to custom) was soon sound
Meantime the telegram bad created

this story of him:
Once a wine agent intruded upon a

The agent told Barrymore he was a
man of good taste, and all that, and
wound up by saying:
"When you want a bottle of wine in
future, will you not gratify me by ask-
ing for my wine?"
"Why, of course," answered Barry-
more most graciously. "I shall be de-

An Ingenious Treatment by Which
Drunkards are Being Cured Daily
in Spite of Themselves.

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
"hMMh 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.
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 Lea 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-
;)arent and misleading improvement.
Drive out the disease at once ana 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 $25 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.
