The B3eltlo *of 1848.
In March, 1848, I had to go over to
Paris to finish up some work there and
Jtst came in for the revolution. From
my windows I had a fine view of all
that was going on. I well remember
the pandemonium in the streets, the
aspect of the savage mob, the wanton
firing of shots at quiet spectators, the
hoisting of Louis Philippe's nankeen
trousers on the flagstaff of the Tulle-
ries. When the bullets began to come
through my windows, I thought it time
to be off while it was still possible.
Then came the question how to get my
box full of precious manuscripts, etc.,
belonging to the East India company,
to the train.
The only railroad open was the line
to Havre, which had been broken up
close to the station, but farther on was
intact In order to get there we had
to climb three barricades. I offered
my concierge 5 francs to carry my box,
but his wife would not hear of his
risking his life in the streets. Ten
francs; the same result. But at the
sight of a louis d'or she changed her
mind and, with an "Allez, mon ami;
alles, toujours," dispatched her hus-
band on his perilous expedition.
Arrived in London, I went straight
to the Prussian legation and was the
first to give Bunsen the news of Louis

Meoteuma's Well.
One of the most pleasing natural
curiosities in the territory of Arizona
is the pool of water known as Monte-
zuma's welL It is situated 15 miles
northeast of the old abandoned mili-
tary post known as Camp Verde. It is
250 feet In diameter, and the clear,
pure water is about 00 feet below the
surface of the surrounding country.
Some years ago certain military offi-
cers sounded the pool and found that
A hearty appetite does not always
indicate a healthy condition. It is not
the quantity of food which is eaten but
the quantity which is assimilated,
which determines the actual value of
the food consumed. If the stomach and
organs of digestion and nutrition cannot
convert the food into nourishment, and
into blood, then the food is an injury
instead of a benefit. For all disorders of
the stomach and its allied organs of di-
gestion and nutrition, there is a certain
remedy in Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical
Discovery. It removes c!o.-ging ob- It strengthens the stomach,
nourishes the nerves, enriches the blood
and builds up the body. It is a flesh-

making firm flesh instead of flabby fat.

kind, and is equally free from opium,
cocaine and all narcotics.
it had a uniform depth of 80 feet of
water except in one place, apparently
about.six feet square, where the sound-
ing line went down about 500 feet
without touching bottom.
The well empties into Beaver creek
only about 100 yards distant, the wa-
ter gushing forth from the rocks as
though it were under great pressure.
The well is undoubtedly supplied from
subterranean sources, possibly through
the hole sounded by the army officers
years ago. The sides of the well are
honeycombed with caves and tunnels,
permitting sightseers to descend to the
water's edge.
Montezuma's well contains no fish.
The flow of water from it is the same
throughout the season. Popular opin-
ion has attributed the origin of the
well to volcanic action, but as the rock
surrounding it is limestone it is more
than probable that the action of the
water is responsible for its creation.-

Rock=a-Bye Baby
Theae are sweet words, but how much
pain and suffering they used to mean. It's
different now. Since Mother's Friend has
become known expectant mothers have
been spared much of the anguish of child-
birth. Mother's Friled is a liniment to be
applied externally. It is rubbed thoroughly
!nto the muscles of the abdomen. It gives
elasticity and strength, and when the final
great strain comes they respond quickly and
easily without pain. Mother's Friend is
never taken internally. Internal remedies
at this time do more harm than good. If a

woman is supplied with this splendid lini-
ment she need never fear rising or swelling
breasts, morning sickness, or any of the
discomforts which usually accompany preg-

There was a moment of suspense.
The wind was very light now. The
powder smoke drifted away, and the
Sapping sails sounded loud overhead.
Would the admiral answer back or
would he treat this bold challenge like
a handkerchief waved at him from a
pleasure boat? Some of the officers on
the Ranger looked incredulous, but
Paul Jones still held his letter in his
hand. There was a puff of white
smoke, and the great guns of the
French flagship began to shake the air
-one, two, three, four, five, six. seven,
eight, nine-and then were still save
for their echoes from the low hills
about Carnac and the great Druid
Mount of St. MichaeL
"Henry Gardner, you may tell the
men that this was the salute of the
king of France to our republic and the
first high honor to our flag." said'the
captain proudly to his steersman, but
they were all huzzaing now along the
Ranger's decks, that little ship whose
name shall never be forgotten while
her country lives.
The captain lifted his hat and stood
looking up at the flag.
"We hardly know what this day
means, gentlemen," he said soberly to
his officers, who came about him. "1
believe we are at the christening of the
greatest nation that was ever born into
the world. The day shall come when

of the 6th inst. we find the f allowing

as candidates or permitted it to be
understood that they are, feel that
it is but just to my frien to make

This is characteristic of he man.
There is no misundersta ing his
motives or intentions in p blic mat-
ters. He is a self made m success-
ful in all his undertakings nd Geor-
gia could do no better an elect
him Chief Executive. If ?loridians
had a voice in the matter tere is no
doubt but that this State would be
solid for him.

"Potatoes are becoming a luxury
here," says a dispatch ftbm Phila-
delphia." "A year ago thly sold for
$1.50 a barrel; now the rice is $4
a barrel with every proslpct that it
will go still higher, probaly to *5."
The same sort of inform'on is be-
ing sent out from New (York and
various New England cites. There
is a shortage of supply, ofing to va-
rious causes, chief nmong which was

Every word of the above applies
to Florida farmers with as much
force as it does those of Georgia.

South Florida papers are having a
friendly quarrel over which place is
and will be the gateway to Cuba.
Here is a few samples of the way it
is being carried on:
The Jacksonville Metropolis speaks
of Tampa as the gateway to Cuba,
and of attempts to divert it else-
where. We do not know that any
"attempts" are being made. We are
just leaving things to nature. Travel
and freight go to Havana via Miami
as the shortest and best route.-
Miami News.
There need be no equal on this
point. Key West will soon settle it
by handling all the freight from both
sides of the State.-Key West In-
Granting you that railroad,
Brother, your own claim backs up
the statement, "Miami is the short-
est and best route," in as much as
your railroad (if you get it) will be
from this place and not from Tampa.
However, if you don't get the rail-
road, M. Santos Dumont has just
made a success of the flying machine,
so you are all right any way.-
Miami News.
See here, you fellows keep cool.
The time is not far distant when
Boca Grande and Punta Rassa will
have been reached by railroad, and
either of these points will be hours
nearer to Cuba than Tampa or
Miami, and Key West will be the
half way stopping place.-Fort
Myers Press.
Tampa is in a great stew. Re-
sistencia, the controlling cigarmakers
union, started out with a high hand
to boycott all unfriendly merchants
and compel their employers to
abandon branch houses at Jackson-
ville and Pensacola. A strike was
ordered, the business men objecting
to have their affairs controlled that
way, and general stagnation in busi-
ness followed as a natural conse-
quence. Finding themselves unable
to settle the differences peaceably,
the business men of that city are
now kidnapping the leaders of the
strike and taking them away-the
public knows not where. These are
desperate measures, but according to
the stories told by the business peo-
ple of Tampa they are justified in
anything almost, except the taking
of human life, to bring an end to the
conditions prevailing there.

Tallahassee is not the only city
with a market complaint. Atlanta
people are complaining of "sinful
milk and vicious beef. We have one
advantage over them. Our milk is
good. The worst any milkman in
this community has thus far learned
i a too free use of water, but they
say "cows cannot be prevented from
drinking too much this hot weather."
Really though, as a rule, our milk is
rich, and wins the praises of all who
use it.

Take all the staple dress goods for
granted. We always have the prettiest of
seasonable dress goods in summer-every-
thing from the plainest white muslin, the
prettiest dimities, the least conspicuous
ginghams, all the way through the organ-
dies and mousseline de soie, up to the ex-
quisite novelties that we bring each year
from Paris.
In winter time the same is true. The
broadest variety, all the way from the
simple 35c serge-or, if you want it, half-
wool and half-cotton dress goods-up to
the richest novelties that Europe turns out.
But the novelties are peculiar. Each
year a man goes to Europe, particularly to
Paris, where he sees the best that the world
has made; he chooses from what he sees,
and occasionally has beautiful things made
aftpr his own designs. These things, of
course, nobody else in America gets, so
that much of our dress goods is exclusive
as well as novel.
But that doesn't account for the price of
it. It is a notable fact that we undersell
all of the stores in Philadelphia, and in
New York our store undersells the New
York stores.



It comes from the vast quantities that
we are able to buy and sell-which gives us
rarely small cost. We pass it on to you at
just the same profit as other people-buy-

Experimenting on this line in an
effort to verify, the theory, Warren
nd Storer took menhaden oil and
through distillation produced kero-

The theory has been advanced as
to the origin of the Pennsylvania oil
fields that the petroleum of lPenn-
ylvania owe their origin to the ef-
ect of heat upon the underlying
imestones and shales of the silurian
ge. It is claimed that the same
force which caused- the Appalachian
hami to uplift, passing through the
imestones and shales of the silur-
an age at a modified temperature,
distilled the oil already contained in
hese shales and conglomerate sands
of the Devonian age, where it was
ondensed and filtered, and found its
home in the open, porous conglom-
erates which characterize the Cats-
kill, Portage and Chemung periods
of the Devonian age.
It therefore seems to be an open
question as to whether oil is of min-
eral or animal origin, and it will
doubtless remain open for some tii
to come.

he Farmer.

m Fanumera Bulletin, No. 124, 8.'Dept. of Ag.)
Th r"eslts? of two years' feeding experim ts with cows to de-
of, the .value of cotton seed to the f r are reported in a bulletin
fTl- "mssM ppI Station, of which the fol ing is a summary:
The fact as demonstrated are: (1) A und of cotton seed has a
t value for feeding cattle than.a po d of corn; (2) a pound of
ctton-seed meal has a feeding value about equal to 2 pounds of corn;
(3) that at least 85 per cent. of the fe tli g 'ingredients in the feeds
Secreted by the animals fed, and may be vered in the manure; (4)
tt nearly half of the fertilizing ingredie excreted is found in the
urine; (5) that both cotton seed and cotto -seed meal may constitute a
ery important part of the grain feed of title without injury to their
health; (6) that cotton seed and cotton-seed eal, when fed to dairy cows
in proper quantity and pkoperly combined th other feeds, do not injure
the quality of either milk or butter.
With corn at 40 cents per bushel (about e average price in this State)
a ton of cotton seed is worth $16.70 as a'Weed, for either beef cattle or
dairy cattle. At present prices for commercial fertilizers nitrogen costs
about 12 cents per pound and phosphoric acid and potash each 5 cents
per pound. Allowing these prices for th same ingredients in manure,
we have 49.09 as the fertilizing value of manure for each ton of seed
fed, making for a farmer a total value pe ton .of $25.79. Farmers sell
their seed for $4 to $6 per ton. Some of em sell for $2 per ton.
In a similar way we find the feeding alue of a ton of cotton-seed
meal to be $28.56, and the manure to be north $19.13 for every ton of
meal consumed, making a total value of $ .69 that a farmer might de-
rive per ton by first feeding the meal to _cttle and applying the manure
to his land. *
'The cotton crop for the South [in 1897 98] was 11,200,000 bales and
5,600,000 tons of seed, having a combine feeding and fertilizing value
of $144,424,000. At $5 per ton the seed Iwould have brought *28,000,-
000. The farmers of the cot En belt lost $116,424,000 [on
this one crop].
The present disposition of the cotton- ed crop secures to the farmer
a very small part of its real value, and m st of necessity give place to a
practice that will secure to the farmer, he maximum benefit which he
may derive from this product.
The time will come when the South farmer will realize that the
fertilizing value in cotton seed must st on the farm to maintain its
fertility and productiveness.
He will not always regard the matter hauling as of no consequence
-as something which he can do without cost. If the best disposition
of cotton seed is finally demonstrated to to extract the oil for human
food and other commercial purposes, an let the meal and hulls go back
to the farms to serve both as feed and fertilizer, then most likely there
will be a small oil mill at each gunnery a d oil and lint will be the only
products of the cotton crop sent to the market.
The Southern farmer, however, need ot wait for oil mills. lie may
get the full value of his cotton seed by judicious system of fe ding, ac-
companied by the most careful saving a proper use of the manure.
Legume Ma during.
To the farmer or planter the word l e means simply any plant be-
longing to the clover family, such as th various clovers, cow peas, Cana-
dian field peas, beans, lucerne or alfalf etc. All these plants possess
the power of taking nitrogen from the air and changing it into such a
form or condition that it becomes av ilable as plant food. Legumes
store this nitrogen in their substance o y. They enrich the soil simply
by making a growth of substance fair y rich in nitrogen as plants go,
and directly or indirectly this substance finds it way back to the soil as
Legumes or clovers enrich the soil oply in fertilizer nitrogen, as this
class of plants, or any other class for iat matter, cannot add to the soil
a single pound of potash or phosphori acid not already taken from the
soil in the shape of the crop itself. T ere is no potash in the air in the
form of gas, nor any phosphoric acid. 1he nitrogen which legumes con-
vert into plant food exists in the air, in inert forms-that is, in such form
that it is useless as plant food. The Llover plants, through the aid of
certain lower organisms, take this nit gen from the air and combine it
with oxygen making thereby a substae which is suitable as plant food.
So far as it is nowiknown, only the let me family of plants possess this
From the above, it follows that nit gen may exist in such a state or
condition that though it may be present in abundant quantities, plants
cannot make use of it. In effect, muh the same maybe said of potash
and phosphoric acid. As these two pant food elements exist in the soil
naturally, they are of little Use to gr -ing plants. Plant food must be
soluble in the water of the soil, in order to be available as the plant food.
Now the natural soil may contain eno gh potash and phosphoric acid to
grow a hundred crops, as shown by chemical analysis, yet fail to grow
one. This is because this potash and 1phosphoric acid is locked up in the
soil in rock particles which are inso uble in water, hence the fertilizer
cannot take such form as to be useful i plant food.
The importance of this latter poin is that legumes or clovers cannot
assimilate nitrogen gas unless certain quantities of potash and phosphoric
acid are present in the soil in available form. As legumes store up nitro-
gen, they form vegetable growth-th nitrogen is a part of. this growth
and the quantity of nitrogen stored epends directly upon the quantity
of this growth. But this vegetable owth cannot be made without the
proper amount of potash and phos1 oric acid needed. The following
table shows the pounds of potash an phosphoric acid required for every
100 pounds of nitrogen stored up by he legumes.

Every 100 pounds of nitrogen requires:

Clover . ....... .... .

It will be observed at once that

show quite .the opposite proportio

tainly it is important to note that this legume nitrogen is not all gain. It
costs something and if the potash and phosphoric aci4 are lacking or im-
properly proportioned, growing legume fertilizer very easily becomes un-
profitable. The farmer or planter must do his own thinking on this sub-
ject and mix it with a good grade of common sense.-R. Garwood in

said that his work as an evangelist left
him no time for reading he wrote:

to Ascertain and Promulgate It Isa
"What time is it?" Few questions
are more common than this, and yet
each day the United States government
goes to a great expense in giving it an
official answer. To ascertain the in-
stant when it is noon on the seventy-
fifth meridian and tc send that inf%r-
mation all over the country is a great
and a costly task. The astronomical
observatory in Washington computes
the true time, which is thence trans-
mitted by electricity to every important
city and town.
About five minutes before the Wash
Ington noon the telegraph companies
cut off all their regular business except
on lines where they have more than
one wire. They then connect all im-
portant points, from which there may
be numberless ramifications, with an
electric wire going into the great clock
in the observatory so that all over the
country its tickings may be heard. For
the ten seconds just before 12 o'clock
there Is silence, which is broken by the
"noon beat." Regular business is the:,
In some cities the wires connect with
a time ball which drops with the noon
beat. The time ball in Washington
over the state, war and navy depart-
ment building is three feet in diameter
and can be seen from all parts of the
city. Crowds frequently gather about
to see it fall, a distance of 21 feet, high
in the air. The man whom some of the
spectators suppose to be dropping the
ball Is merely there to hoist it again to
Its place.
In the building beneath are 23 clocks
which are each day automatically cor-
rected by it. A; electrical device "sets"
them, placing hour, minute and second
hands exactly vertical at the instant
the ball drops. The hands that are too
fast are pushed back, and those that
are slow are thrust forward.

"AnIngenious 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 lintoicpting liquors, requires an
antidote capable of neutralizing and
eradicating this poison, and destroy-
ing the craving for intoaTrintia. Suf-
ferers may now cure themselves at
home without publicity or loss of time
from business by this wonderful
"HOME 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 drutkards 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 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 and 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.

Since the Pennsylvania hospital first
opened its doors about 140.000 patients
have been admittecL Probably 95,000
of these were poor and had to be sup.
ported at the expense of the institution.
For almost 90 years the hospital has
been the home of the most famous
painting in Philadelphia, Benjamin
West's "Christ Ilealing the Sick In the
Temple." It was in 1801 that West pro-
poned painting the picture for the hos-
pital. On Aug. 2. 1817, it was shipped
to Philadelphia and was received by
the managers of the hospital as a con-
tribution from Benjamin West. -
For 30 years this painting was open
tn the public and exhibited in a build-
Inc specially erected on the Spruce
street front of the hospital grounds
from plans designed by the artist. The
painting while exhibited was viewed
1-* more than 100,000 persons. The
actual profit, above all expenses, was
more than $15,000.
In 1876 it formed part of the col-
lection of the pictures in the Centen-
nial exhibition. Recently it was dis-
overed that the ravages of time neces-
sitated considerable repairs, when.
through the liberality of a friend of the
hospital, the painting was restored to
its original condition and placed in the
clinical lecture room of the Pine Street
At the present time there is being
built for its reception a new building,
and in the interval the priceless can.
vas is stored in a Chestnut street galI

The systematic examination of more

some Interesting conclusions. For one
thing, it is ascertained that the .ear
continues to grow in the later decades
of life. In fact, it appears never to
stop growing until death. A woman
who has small, shell-like ears at 20
years of age will be very apt to possess
medium sized ears at 40 years and
