partment as at present.
This, it was thought, would be a
great advantage to property owners
throughout the State, whose land
had been sold for unpaid taxes.
Since the passage of the act re-
ferred to above, the force of clerks
in the Treasury Department has
been largely increas.4, so as to get
the tax sale certificates now on file
there classified and divided so that
they could be turned over to the var-
ious County Clerks on September 1.
Already a number of the County
Clerks have arrived here ready to
take over the certificates of their re-
The law, however, as passed by
the Legislature, is very complicated,
a great deal more o than than the old
law, and tlhe experts in the Treas-
ur ry Department fear that a great
deal of confusion will thereby be
broht about throughout the
State, due to the attempts of the
clerks to carry out its provisions. To
prevent this, as far as possible,
Comptroller Croom hlis had an "ex-
ample" prepared by the experts in
his department, showing how the
act is to be construed, and how the
various calculations of the amount of
delinquent taxes due the State, to-
gether with interest on same, is to
be -worked out. This "example"
has been mailed to the various coun-
ty clerks and if carefully studied
4nd faithfully followed will tend to
greatly reduce the confusion that it
is feared will be produced by in-
dividual construction of the act.
- Of course every day, as the clerks
become familiar with the workings
of the haw, uncertainty will Ibecome
less and less, and will no doubt
eventually cease altogether. But for
a time at least a great many mis-
takes will no doubt le made unless
the clerks are guided by the ex.-
ample mailed to them from the

anniversary of the great naval vic-
tory won by Commodore Oliver
Hazard Perry, of Rhode island,over
the British fleet in Lake Erie, Sep-

forgotten that a Virginia officer, the
late Capt. Hugh Nelson Page, of
Norfolk, Virginia, distinguished him-
self in the battle of Lake Erie. Capt-
Page was promoted by the President
for bravery in this engagement, was
presented with two jewel-hilted
swords, one by the Congress of the
United States, the other by the Leg-
islature of Virginia. It is to be
hoped the Perrys, the Pages and
many other descendants of men who
won the fight that day will be rep-

the deeply ungrateful, revengeful,
treacherous element that Spain tried
in vain to civilize; and now are wait-
ing only for the declaration of in-
dependence to "drive every Amer-
ican off the island."
This, together with the experience
of Spain, has led the United States
to promise the world that Cuba shall
have a stable government, and that
she will keep control of the island
even to annexation if that is neces-
sary to protect the lives and prop-
erty of American citizens, as well as
the capital of all other people now
seeking investments on her prolific
At the present time through war
and famine she lies desolate and
practically depopulated. Only a
rim of country comprising the cities
and adjacent country are, properly
speaking, inhabited. There are thou-
sands of plantations whose owners
have been exterminated, and thou-
sands of acres of grazing, coffee andi
tobacco land for sale by Spaniards
who have returned to their own
country; besides thousands of other
plantations for sale by resident own-
ers because they have no capital.
There is a vast field for many
bright business men in opening up
hundreds of enterprises so necessary
to the development of this rich coun-
try. The establishment of the Na-
tional Bank of Cuba, organized with
a capital of $1,000,000, U. S. gold,
is calculated to bring into harmon-
ious association all intesests-com-
mercial, political and agricultural-
and is a happy augury of immediate
development and prosperity of the
island. There are practically no
manufacturers; and land and prop-
erty of all descriptions can be pur-
chased at extremely low prices. Of
its 35,000,000 acres but 3,000,000
acres are under cultivation; while
16,000,000 are virgin forests contain-
ing most valuable timber-mahog-
any, ebony, rosewood, redwood, blue
cedar, logwood, eucalyptus and six-
ty-five varieties of softr woods.The
soil is black or red loam, 16 to 18
inches deep; can be cropped for sev-
eral successive seasons without re-
newal even on tobacco lands, while
cane is planted once in. a lifetime.
Sugar, tobacco and coffee are the
present chief exports, but the quick-
est returns for the least capital are
found in buying and stocking the
grazing lands. Such land can be
bought from $2 to $5 per acre, and
stocked at a cost of about $15 per
head. Mining is yet in its infancy,
but very profitable. There are large
deposits of magnetic ore of an ex-
tremely fine quality, great beds and
seams of fine coal and good evidence
of gold, silver, antimony, mangan-
ese, nickel, ochre, kaolin, Fuller's
earth, salt and petroleum; while im-
portant industries in the mining of

had nothing about them. Then one of

them. The light was now turned down
a little, and in a moment the woman's
face began to be illuminated by a
ghostly light that extended quickly
over her entire body.
She then began to move around and
around, uttering a low, murmuring
sound the while, gradually quickening
the pace until she was whirling about
like a top. A moment of this, and the
light that had clung alout her seemiedl

her. As soon as this was accomplish-

mold the light with her hliil, and.
though I could distinctly see her indsils
move through the light as if it wire a
cloud, it began to assume human form.

T'- E KUKLUX KLAN.
Where and How the Famous Body
When the civil war ended, the little
town of Pulaski, Tenn.. welcomed a
band of young men who, though they
were veterans of hard fought fields,
were for the most part no older than
the mass of college students. In the
general poverty, the exhaustion, the
lack of heart, naturally, prevalent
throughout the beaten south, young
men had more leisure than was good
A southern country town, even in the
halcyon days before the war, was not
a particularly lively place, and Pulaski
In 1866 was doubtless rather tame to
fellows who had seen Pleckett charge
at Gettysburg or galloped over the
country with Morgan and Wheeler. A
group of them assembled In a law office
one evening in May, 1866, were discuss-
ing ways and means of having a live-
lier time. Some one suggested a club
or society. An organization with no
very definite aims was effected, and at
a second meeting, a week later, names
were proposed and discussed. Some
one pronounced the Greek word kuklos,
From kuklos to kuklux was an easy
transition-whoever consults a glossary
of college boys' slang will not find it
strange-and klan followed kuklux as
naturally as "dumptyf' follows "hump-
ty." That the name meant nothing
whatever was a recommendation, and
one can fancy what sort of badinage
would have followed a suggestion that
in six years a committee of congress
would devote 13 volumes to the history
of the movement that began in a Pu-
laski law office and migrated later to a
deserted anti half ruined house on the
outskirts of the village. Atlantic

Work of the Earthworm.
When we behold a wide. turf covered
expanse, we should remember that its
smoothness, on which so much of its
beauty depends, is mainly due to all
the inequalities having been slowly
leveled by worms. It is a marvelous
reflection that the whole of the superfi-
cial mold over any such expanse has
passed and will pass again every few
years through the bodies of worms. The
plow is one of the most ancient and
most valuable of man's inventions, but
long before he existed the land was, in
fact, regularly plowed by earthiforms.
It may be doubted whether there are
many other animals which have played
so important a part in the history of
the world as have these lowly organ-
ized creatures. Some other animals,
however, still more lowly organized-
namely, corals-have done far more
conspicuous work in having construct-
ed innumerable reefs and islands in the
great oceans, but these are almost con-
fined to the tropical zones.

It Is not that the mole is born blind,

may be no such thing as a mole that is

ricultural State in the Union, when
as a matter of fact she is the best,
and I say that after traveling and
investigating' all of them." This is
true. A majority of the outside
world looks upon Florida as a coun-
try of swamps, low lands and sand
hills, too poor or two wet to grow
anything successfully outside the
orange belt. This opinion must be
overcome. A State Fair helps to
do this overcoming. Many people
from other States desiring to come
South to locate will attend the fair
to see what she has to offer. That
helps. Besides this, every metropol-
itan and agricultural newspaper of
any importance in the country has a
correspondent in Jacksonville. They
will write up the fair in an extended
manner, declaring to millions of peo-
ple the absolute fallacy of the opin-
ions above referred to. This helps
more. Leon county cannot afford to
lose this opportunity to advertise
herself to the world.
Upon first blush one would think
from recent occurrences that the
usually staid and imperturbable ed-
itor of the Morning News is seeking
a new reputation-for sarcasm. Here
is the way he comments on a recent
event: "A company has been or-
ganized in Springfield to fight the
coffin trust. It announces it will so
arrange matters that those of us con-
templating an early retirement from
this field of strife may make our
exit in greater peace, with hearts
consoled by the reflection that our
funeral expenses will be forty per
cent. less than they have been in the
past. We hail and welcome the ad-
vent of the new company. Nobody
can tell how many persons have been
prevented from departing this life
because of the feeling, representing
in their-breasts the lingering rem-
nant of a forgotten decency, that
their friends would not be able to
afford the expense of their burial
at the current rates. There are some
in the path of whose departing foot-
steps we would be the last to throw
an obstacle, and we cherish the hope
that the organization of the new
company, with the fulfillment of its
promises, will remove at least one
stumbling-block from their way."
The Tallahasseean Pan-American
Club is about the most popular thing
going now. From- the surrounding
towns every mail is bringing in new
members, while the home list is
growing faster than was expected.
Two. coaches will be needed (and
perhaps three if it keeps on growing
at -ihe present rate. The "more the
merrier," and the cheaper the rate.
Hurry up, you who want to go and
have not yet sent in your name. We
must close up soon. The Tallahas-
seean wants to get the best rate.
For years we have been excep-
tionally fortunate in escaping the
disaster of big storms. They have
come as near as Jacksonville on the
east (last year and the year before)
as near as Carrabelle, only fifty
miles distant (year before last) and
Pensacola (this year), but fortu-
nately for.us heavy rains and light
squalls only have struck us. Let us

garden. Plant now and let these
August rains germinate your seeds
and give them a good send-olff. Plant
turnips, ruta-bagas, beets, cabbage,
etc. A hardy English garden pea
planted now will make well unless
we have very early frost. A variety
known as the Mclntosh pea is very
hardy, stands a good deal of cold,
and will pretty certainly give you
peas for New Year's. Irish pota-
toes also can be planted with sonie
certainty of making a crop for win-
ter use. If we have a late wet fall
they will certainly make well.
Another vegetable that can be tried
is the tomato. Put out cuttings from
the old plants. They will readily
take root and with a favorable sea-
son produce as many tomatoes as
those planted in the early summer.
A gentleman two ears ago had some
of the best tomatoes we ever saw
for his Christmas dinner produced
in this way. A fall garden is really
of more importance than the spring
garden, because of the scarcity of
all green vegetables at this time.
Now is your chance to plant.

An interesting meeting of promi-
nent local leaders of the Young Peo-
pile's Society of Christian Endeavor
was held last night at the hospitable
home of Miss Mattie E. Race, No.
1542 Main street, Springfield.
The object of the meeting was to
consider the invitation of General
Manager Healy, of the Florida Ag-
ricultural Fair, to the Endeavorers
of the State to hold their annual
meeting at the grounds one day dur-
ing the fair, to be called Christian
Endeavor Day. E. S. Upham, of
Lake Weir, Fla., the able president
of the State Union of Christian En-
deavor, was present and made an
interesting address The organiza-
tion in Florida is very strong, and at
the meeting last night it was decided
to accept the invitation extended,
and to organize in order to have the
meeting the largest of its kind in
the history of the State.
The members of the local organi-
zations will perfect arrangements
to make the stay of the visitors de-
lightful. With the cheap transpor-
tation which is assured it is thought
that a large number will come to the
city to be present at the State Fair
and Christian Endeavor gathering.

Millet and "The Angelus."
It was only after long years of strug-
gle and dire poverty, through which
Millet was consoled and supported by
his wife, that the peasant painter was
able to take the three roomed cottage
at Barbizon and "try to do something
really good." It was then that lie be-
gan to paint that most beautiful "poem
of poverty," the "Angelus," which is
today one of the most valuable pic-
tures in the world. Again and again he
threw aside the picture in despair of
ever finishing it to his satisfaction, and
as often his wife replaced it on the
easel and induced him to continue.
On one occasion he was so incensed
at not being able to produce a certain
effect thit he seized a knife and would
have destroyed the canvas and ended
the matter once for all had not his wife
fortunately seized his hand and in-
duced h'm to give the picture another
trial. Thus it was that at last the
"Angelus" found a place on the walls
of the Iouvre. The success it won en-
couraged Millet to paint many more
pictures and thus place himself among
the immortals in art.

Sores and Ulcers never become chronic

When this has been accomplished the dis.

of the trouble. S. S. S. does, and no mattel

necessary to heal the sore and nourish
the debilitated, diseased body.

The Celebrated "Leaf Ant."
One of the oddest little creatures in
all animal nature is the "leaf uit" of
Central America. Although different
species of this oddity are known to in-
habit the Ameriecal continent from
Brazil to Mexico, the real home of the
true leaf ant is in Nicaragu:. To all
outward appearances this little insect
is a common ant., but one of gi:-autic
size, it must be admitted, when com-
pared with the ants of our temperate
regions, being on an :avrag over nan
Inch in length. The habit for whk!h
these ants are so celebrated, and one
which we could hardly belikve were it
not for the testimony of reputable nat-
uralists, is that of carrying a leaf for
a sunshade, just as our wo<:iien aud
men carry pr.rrso!s and u:'.ellas for
the same purpose.
When at work. the leaf carrying ants
look like a little anmy in which each
individual member is protected from
the sun's rays by a little banner of
green. Another remarkable fact in con-
nection with the leaf carrier is that
only those at work carry the little leafy
protection. When a long tile of burder-
bearers have deposited their budgets.
they discard their parasols and return
for a load without the leaf which
made them such conspicuous objects
when on the "up trip."

Swing Done by Ants.
Ants aTr credited with so many mar-
Telous acnomplislinecnts that a new one
must be remarkable to the noteworthy.
Mr. E. G, Green of Ceylon, an authori-
ty upon insect habits, has, however,
made an observation which is well
worth putting on record. IIe has watch-
ed red ants holding grubs 'in their
mouths and using the web they spin to
repair a went in their nest.
Some haves which had been fastened
together iy the ants were separated by
Mr. Gree,. and in a short time after he
saw small white grubs being passed
backward and forward across the gap.
Closer observation showed that each
grub waC held in the jaws of one of the
worker ants, and its movements were
directed as required. A continuous
thread of silk issued from the mouth of
each grub and was used by the ants to
sew up the rent in their shelter.
There were no grubs in the neighbor-
hood, and those used were obtained
from a nest at some distance. This de-
liberate use of a naturally formed web
as a sewing thread is as astonishing as
any instance of the intelligence of ants

Pingree and Mosby.
When Hazen S. Pingree was coming
Into prominence in Michigan politics,
he was in Washington one night and
strolled through the corridors of Wil-
lard's hotel, which he had not visited
since war times, when it was the popu-
lar rendezvous of the city, political
military and otherwise. A friend intro-
duced him to Colonel Mosby, the old
"Why, hello, colonel," said Pingree in
his bluff, offhanded way. just as if he
was in the habit of meeting Mosby ev-
ery day. "I have not seen you for 25
years, but I'remember very well the
last occasion when we met."
"Ah," said the Virginian politely.
"what incident recalls it to your mind?
I really fail to remember you, much to
"Oh, well," said Pingree, "you would
not be so apt as I to remember the day.
I was captured by your men. and, hap-
pening to be wearing a very good, near-
ly new uniform, you confiscated it on
the spot and gave me your old ragged
butternuts. But that's all right All's

She Was the Ghost.
"A certain lady and her family," says
Sir Mountstuart- Grant-Duff in his
"Diary," "hired a place in Scotland
which was haunted by the ghost of a
woman who was to be seen constantly
at night wandering through the rooms
and passages. When the family arriv-
ed, the lady was much struck with the
place and said, 'I most have been here
before, for I know this place so well,
only there ought to be two rooms here,
and there is only one.'
"The agent replied that within a few
weeks the owner had caused a partition
to be taken down and made the two
rooms into one. Still the lady was puz-
zled at her knowledge of the place, till
she remembered that it was a house
she used to go to In her dreams.
"Well, some time passed, and the
agent was up at the house again, when
the lady complained that one part of
the contract had not been fulfilled.
They had hired a house and a ghost for
the summer, and no ghost had she seen.
The agent replied: 'Of course not, be-
anne von are the ghost. We recognized

A Remarkable Suicide.
One of the most remarkable cases of
suicide was that of the king of Falaha,
on the west coast of Africa.
The king was attacked by a Moham-
medan force, and. finding resistance
impossible. he assembled his family
and principal officers, and after ad-
dressing them and intimating his de-
termination never to accept Mohamme-
danism and inviting those who did not
agree with him to go away he applied
a light to a large quantity of gqnpow-

ought to be so borne in mind that the
practice of them becomes habitual:
Always keep the label uppermost
when pouring from a bottle, so that if
any liquid trickles down the side the
label misses it. Result-your labels
keep clean and legible for much longer.
Secondly, if you want to deliver

How High Was the Trower of Babe!"
The actual height at which the last
stone of that famous structure, the
Tower of Babel, rested cannot, on ac-
count of the remoteness of the times at
which it is said to have existed, ever
become more than a matter of merest
conjecture. Herodotus, who lived about
1,700 years after that "great spiral way
to heaven" is said to have been at-
tempted, says that he saw at Babylon
a structure consisting of eight towers
raised one above another, each 75 feet
in height, but whether this ruin was
the remains of the Tower of Babel it
was even then impossible to ascertain.
Herodotus, usually minutely exact in
his writing, leaves us in ignorance as
to how the upper level of each of these
75 foot towers was reached from the
As might be expected, even in tradi-
tion.a wide difference of opinion exists
as to the height of the tower. Most ori-
entalists maintain that God did not put
a stop to the work until the tower had
reached a height of 10.000 fathoms, or
about 12 miles. In Ceylonese tradition
it is said to have been as high as 20,000
elephants, each standing one above the
other. St. Jerome asserts on the au-
thority of persons who had examined
the ruins that itdid not reach a height
exceeding four miles. Other state-
ments are still more still more extravagant.
Bill Nye on Life Insurance.
The late Bill Nye's endorsement of
life Insurance is probably the most
characteristic paragraph to be quoted
from his writings:

gineer goes groping his way at 25 miles
per hour, these days of tumbling signs

pleasure in certifying and saying to
whom these presents may come that

THE HOME GOLD CURE.
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
"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 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 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

After suffering untold agonies for-
one year, Charles A. Mundee, a well
known and popular transportation
official, died at his home this morn-
ing at No. 1441 Hubbard street. Mr.
Mundee was true to every trust plac-
ed upon him, an upright, manly citi-
zen, true friend and a devoted father,-
husband, son and brother
The deceased was a native of Kan-
sas,havingbeen .born in Leavenworth,
in that State, December 29, 1854.
When he was 11 years of age, his
father, General Charles Mundee, re-
moved v :th his family to this State,
locating at Tallahassee. Young
Mundee later on was chosen assist-
ant postmaster at Tallahassee, and
held this position for fourteen years.
In 1877 he came to Jacksonville,
and the following year became chief
clerk for Walter F. Coachman, who
was the local freight agent of the
Florida Central and Peninsular in
Jacksonville. When 3Ir. Coachman
was appointed assistant general
freight agent of the road, Mr. Mun-
dee was appointed to the position of
local freight agent and retained it
until the consolidation with the Sea-
board Air Line.
About one year ago a serious
throat affection caused Mr. Mundee
to go to Baltimore and enter the
Johns Hopkins Hospital as an oper-
ation was necessary This operation
was performed, but it did not give
the relief hoped for, and Mr Mun-
dee returned home. Notwithstanding
his intense suffering he would from
time to time give his attention to the
duties of his office. It has been quite
apparent to his family and friends
for the past few weeks that the end
was near, but he bore his pains with
splendid courage and never for a
