The rain did not stop the ball
game, apd in spite of mud and
weather.the home club met the Chip-
ley club: at the park and played a six
inning game; then the rain set in
and oh how it did rain! The players
and spectators ran for the grand
stand like sheep, and climbed over
the railing like a company attacking
a Philippine fort.
The game did not begin until late
and it was nearly 4 o'clock before the
umpire called "play ball," owing to
the fact that the guests and rival
nines were late in arriving, due
largely to the weather and bad roads
between the city and Camp Ilender-

At length amid hootings and all
sorts of cries the clubs got them-
selves together and the game started.
The make-up was as follows: Talla-
hassee--Page, right field; Willianms,
left field; McLin, third base; Bron-
son, catcher; Costa, second base; El-
liott, centre field; Sheets, first base;
Taylor, pitcher and Wilson, short
stop. The Chipleys were Hawk,
catcher; B. Ferrior, third base; Ket-
chimi, second base; Liddon, short
stop; II. Farrior, first base; Sessons,
right field; R. Hedgeboom, left field ;
R. Farrior, centre field and 1I.
Ilolg(-boom, pitcher. .The umpire
F. B. Calloway, of Chipley, and Mr.
('arltr, of Marianna, made the ofli-
4al score.
'Th,. whole game was a very good
and (lose one. That is the teams were
Swell matdchd. It took some time for
the home clubto getonto the"sneak"
gainme of the Chipleys but when they
did they IK'gan to forge ahead. If
the ga ine had been played to the fin-
iih, ihe home team would have no
dloul won. As it was the score stood
6 to 5 in favor of the Chipleys at
the eid of the sixth inning, when-the
rain Vamine down in such torrents as
forced the umpire to call the game.
There was much fine playing sev-
'ral times throughout the game.
MeLin's two curious fowls and fine
fly strike caused a shout and a yell.
Of thle Chipleys, Hawks and IIH.
,Ilogbioom made fine strikes and did
well. Page made the finest catch
in tjhe game, and Bronson, Costa and
Sh neI, made fine plays. Page made
I w,, .,ores, on, in the first and an-
,,1,Ir in the third inning. Bronson
','oirt'd in the sixth as did C('osta also.

SlShiets scored in ilie fourth inning.
(ff the Chipleys, Hawks made a' in the fourth; B. Ferrior in the
l1hiil; Ketchum in the fourth; R.

club deserves all praise as they did
their best under the circumstances.

Last Thursdayy the editor 'of the
Tallahasseean was called to Carra-
belle on business, and by special re-
quest, when business was done, re-
turned to Lanark and spent the re-
mainder of the day with the excur-
sionists who went down for an out-
ing on the Gulf. At leaving time in
the morning the weather was threat-
ening, and on this account very few
from the city who had arranged to go
showed up at the depot.
About thirty-five or forty, mostly
newcomers who reside a short dis-
tance in the country, were on hand
and to say they spent a very pleasant
day only mildly expresses it.
General Passenger Agent Arm-
strong, of the CarrabeJle, Tallahassee
& Georgia Railroad, and Mr. Thomas
Lloyd, brother of Mrs. Bond, who
conducts the inn at Lanark, were
along to look after the party and did
everything that would add to their
comfort and enjoyment.
Some of the crowd were somewhat
skeptical about the dinner, on ac-
count of the cheapness-$1.00 for
the round trip ticket and dinner.
This skepticism was, however put at
rest by the menu, served in abun-
dance and with all the skilled atten-
tion found at four-dollar-a-day ho-

This question put at rest by the
actual test, everybody felt in fine
condition for a trip to Dog Island.
Captain Sanborn, with the "Sego,"
was on hand and at an invitation
from the crowd that he could serve
them was soon under way with about
as merry a party as is ever seen.
Everybody went. Everybody car-
ried bathing suits, and everybody
enjoyed themselves in the big swells
that roll in on the outside of Dog
Island. Then they saw the big ships
loading with lumber for foreign
ports, and returned in time for sup-
ler at the inn, which was equally as
good and bountiful as dinner.
Immediately on leaving the din-
ing room from the supper table de-
lightful waltz music was wafted
across the -hall from the large par-
lor, and in less time than it con-
sumes to write about it many cou-
ples were enjoying the mazy dan-
ces. This kept up until Capt. Pen-
nill's "all aboard" warning hurried
us off to the car waiting to convey
us home.
Just a few minutes past 8.30
good-bys were all said and we were
speeding Tallahasseeward. Ten
o'clock found us at home, after a
very pleasant day, notwithstanding
it had started in a rather foreboding
manner. Here we found a heavy rain
had fallen, but save a little shower
run through between the Sopchoppy
and Ocklockonee Rivers,we had seen
no rain all day.

Hearing that Messrs. Saxon &
HIanks, the contractors of the Geor-
gia Pine Railroad, which, by the
way, is now known as the Geargia,
Alabama & Florida, had commenced
track laying in earnest, our reporter
walked out to the scene of operations
yesterday to see with his own eyes
the work in progress. The old say-
ing that "seeing is believing" is a
very true one, and what he saw out
beyond the city limits convinced him
that very soon our fair city will have

Arriving at the yard, part of the
Woodward tract, donated by the peo-
ple of Leon county to the company,
our reporter fortunately found Mr.
Hanks and Mr. Gansley, the en-
gineer-in-chief, from whom he was
able to obtain such information as
he desired.
There is now six miles of steel
rails on the ground, that will be laid
down as fast as men can do it.
Another shipload of rails will be
here by the first of September, and
that will complete the contract of
Messrs. Saxon & Hanks.
Their contract is to grade, cross-
tie and lay the track for thirteen
miles from this city, that is to say,
to a point one mile beyond the Ock-
lockonce River. The bridging of. the
river also comes in their contract.
At present they have some thirty-
five hands at work making connec-
tion with the C., T. & G. R. R.They

Last Monday afternoon there pas-
sed by St. Teresa a party, consist-
ing of a man and wife and two chil-
dren, bound for San Marco, Fla.,
which we under stand is below Char-
loece Harbor. They had started in,
a little 0at-bottomed boat from ai
pint up tle Flint River, within sixi
miles of Atlanta, Ga., and had beenA
one month last Sunday on the way.-
The boat was hardly fifteen feeq.
long, and had a small sail to hel]f
it along whenever the wind happen-.
ed to be favorable.
As stated above, the party consist
ed of a man, wife and two litttl
children, the oldest just able to wall

A few days ago Dr. J. M. Camrn, of

this section, and for which a profit-
able market is seldom found.

J. B. Eggleston invited the Governor
and his staff, the Commissioners and
"about twenty of their friends to an
elegant luncheon in the main hall
,of the Louisiana and Texas rice kit-

'dishes was sered, and a number of
toasts were drank and responded to.
It is needless to say that Louisiana,
her accomplished Governor and his
brilliant staff, her efficient Commis-
sioners, her wonderful resources,
came in for their share of eulogy
while these toasts were being drunk.
'The luncheon closed about six
o'clock, when the Governor and his
party proceeded to "do" the Mid-

had been ararnged for them. They

of the 23d the local Virginia Com-

the Governor and his party, who are
stopping at the International Ho-

the elegant white marble New York

purpose by the Hon. Daniel Lock-

'State Commission. This building
is of white marble, surrounded by
porticoes supported by Corinthian
columns. It stands on a bluff over-
looking Mirror Lake, and is the
handsomest of all the State build-
ings on the gounds. The local com-
mnittee was assisted in receiving by
the beautiful and stately Mrs. John

committee on ceremonies. The (Gov-
ernor's military escort was thle fa-

form closely resembles that worn by
the Continentals. The universal
verdict here is that the Blues have
surpassed in appearance every other
company seen here since the exposi-
tion opened. This superb military
organization is accompanied by the

William 1. Buchanan, who is fa-
cile princeps by this time at that
sort of thing. He averages three a
week, and if there is anything in
having a glib tongue, a good vocab-
ulary, a pleasing manner and a great
deal of experience, the Director-Gen-
eral of the Pan-American Exposi-
tion ought never to be out of a job
of this sort. He owned up very
willingly to being of Virginia de-
scent himself.
The first speech was made by the
Governor of Virginia, lion. J. HIoge-.
Tyler. His effort was worthy of the
Chief Executive of the Mother of

States and Presidents. Hlie was fol-
lowed by MAr. Joseph Bryan, of the
RIiclhmond Times, whose speech bris-
tled with statistics as to the resour-
ces of his State. Mr. Bryan is .
forceful speaker. The final speech
was made by Dr. George Miles, the
scholarly president and founder of
the school of St. Albans, Radford,
Virginia. After the exercises an el-
egant luncheon was served in the
New York State Building.

(Editor Farmer and Fruit- Grower.)
To describe the Jersey cow in
plan language, she must be called
"an improved churn with a leg at
each corner," and-thereby hangs a
When she poses, however, as a
decoration, she claims her dainty
belongings, which have attained
p4ifection since nature first issued
th4 edition de luxe, bound in calfi
Jn her "right little, tight little
island," she has been protected by
certain laws prohibiting the importa-
tio of other breeds, thus persist-
ently keeping her patrician blood
inviolate from mixture -with the
commonn herd." Her surroundings
hake been like unto that "divinity
thst doth hedge a queen," until her
pedigree is unquestioned and her
blood is as Hue as that of the Plant-
agenets or Tudors, constituting her
the creme de la creme of *cow aris-
She is unrivaled as an ornament to
a shaven sward or picturesque park,
and in form and color leaves nothing
to be desired. In outline she is more
beautiful than any "counterfeit pre-
sintment" the chisel of Phidias could
hive essayed,. and more decorative,
in the eyes of her lover, than the
celebrated Warwick vase from Ha-
drian's villa.
She appeals to the esthetic sense
and fil!s the measure of our eye with
a scheme of color embracing all the
tones in fawn, cream and gray, with
composite tints of orange, mulberry
and ashes of rose. Like harmonies
in music, these acord with the pal-
ette nature has prepared for the set-
ting of the picture, and the finishing
touch is given to the landscape.
At any season of the year she
lends her quota of charms to the en-
vironment, but seems particularly
suited to-summer scenes and the en-
joyments peculiar to the odorous
hush of drowsy noon, when

'Returning from the open glade.

The Jerseys are so deer-like in ap-
pearance that a group at a little dis-
tance might easily be taken for a
herd of their counterparts; and it
only needs a little obliquity of vision
to convert the waxen horns into
branching antlers and the resem-
blance is complete.
'When crested leaders proud and higfl
Toss their beamed frontlets to the sky."
If our queen is so regal at a dis-
tance, a nearer view but (nhances
her attractions; and it would be im-
possible to imagine anything more
interesting in the way of a dilemma
than that lovely dished face between
the amber, ebony-tipped horns. The
soulful eyes are so large and velvety
that their prototype gave to Juno
the pseudoDym of the "ox eyed god-
dess;" the muzzle of snowy outline
serves to accentuate the mouth,
where we catch glimpses of a tongue
which, though black, is guiltless of
venom, while her breath 8s as sweet
as the clover-blooms she so delicately
treads with her dainty feet. Her
coat is a wondrous texture, neither
fur nor silk, whose lining is sure to
peep out somewhere and show its
tinge of gold; and as for her switch,
she can make the proud boast denied
many a belle, that her hair is grown
on the premises.
The Jersey can adapt herself to
any situation, and refines and digni-
fies her abiding-place by a seeming
consciousness of work well done.
Her disposition being gentle, she.
readily responds to affection; and
whether she constitutes herself the
playmate of the children or the pet
extravagance of the "lord of the
manor," she fills the niche to perfec-
tion. She is not out of place teth-
ered on a princely domain sur-
rounded with caressing admirers;
neither is she dwarfed in the small-

Speaking of the Christie-Groover
Drug Company, the only wholesale
drug house in Florida, with head-
quarters at Jacksonville, the Way-
cross Journal of recent date says:
"Flavius T. Christie, the President
of the Christie-Groover Company; is
a duplicate of William Jennings
Bryan in appearance. His features
are almost identical with the states-
man's, except that he is not so large.
He is often reminded of the striking
appearance by new acquaintances,
and, although he is not a political
admirer of the would-be-president,
he is not ashamed of being his
double in looks.
"Mr. Christie is a native of Leon
county, Fla. He was reared on a
farm, and after leaving school at 19,
he continued to folio his native
pursuit, adding a mexcantileybusiness
in Tallahassee to his vocation, which
he continued until be went to Jack-
sonville in January, 1900. At 20 he
married a Miss Heir, of Tallahassee,
and one son is a result of their
"Mr. Christie started life a poor
boy, and his keen business sense and
fine judgment, his fine character and
unrelenting energy have brought him
a snug fortune. He owns 6,000
acres of fine farm lands in Leon
county, and has extensive farming
interests there. -He is also a mem-
ber of the wholesale grocery house of
Whi'e, Walden & Co, Jacksonville,
and owns quite a lot of realty in that
"Frank C. Groover, is vice-presi-
dent of the Christie-Groover Com-
pany. He is a native of Groovers-
ville, Ga., and is a member of one of
the oldest families in South Georgia.
"Mr. Groover has been a citizen of
Jacksonville 18 or 20 years. He is
38 years o!d, and his wife was a Miss
Bernard, of Tallahassee, Fla. He
has four pretty children-two boys
and two girls-and resides in his
own beautiful home in Jacksonville.
"He, too, started a poor boy, and
by his own resources has accumula-
ted a nice fortune, possessing, be-
sides his business interests, some
valuable property in Jacksonville."

Pitt's Carminative is pleasant to the
taste, acts promptly, and never fails to
give satisfaction. It carries children
over the critical time of teething, and is
the friend of anxious mothers and puny
children. A few doses will demonstrate
its value. E. H. Dorsey, Athens, Ga.,
"I consider it thebest medicine I have
ever used in my family. It does all you
claim for it, and even more."

Some time ago W. J. McCracKen,

The milkmaid is an important ad-
junct, and, in a decorative point of
view, not to be despised. In rural
England she is on her native heath,
under hedgerows 'mid the .sent of
hawthorn blooms as fragrant as the
lacteal tribute paid the flowing pail.
It is to be regretted that in -this land
of the free the "pretty maid" who
goes "a-milking" is generally a boy,
devoid of that subtle sympathy the
wise little Jersey appreciates. Then
in the substitution of the male sex,
who shall compass the less to our ar-
tistic sense in the marring of the pic-
ture as Shakespeare painted it, when
the "pretty chopt hands plied their
Small as is the Jersey, she com-
bines in her economy more admirable
qualities than all other "cattle upon
a thousand hills;" and, as "pretty is
who pretty does," besides being
matchless, she is a mint of money to
her owner: in her butter-making ca-
pacity, and quite as phenomenal in
her gilt-edged exploits as her feath-
ered friend of the barnyard who
"shelled out" out the golden eggs.
She is emphatically the "cow with
the crumpled horn," who has,tossed
more dogs that worried more cats
that killed more rats of unbelief and
prejudice in the house of every Jack
who did not love her appearing than
any known quadruped. Jerseys are
they that have come up through
great tribulation, and have fought
their way step by step until their po-
sition is as impregnable as Gibraltar,
because it is founded upon the estab-
lished truth that they are as useful
as ornamental.-Mrs. W. A. Mullin,
in the Farm and Fruit-Grower.

is very much like the blossom-
ing of a flower. Its beauty and
perfection depends entirely
upon the care bestowed upon

should have the tenderest care.
They should be spared all worry

Mr. McCracken's experience opens
a wide and inviting field of business

A judge, says the Philadelphia
North American, who had not been
on the Bench long enough to have
worn Holes in it was attempting to
do the Learned Decision stunt,when
a Bad Break provoked a Langh from
an impetuous young Lawyer.
"Youne man!" roared His Honor,
ruffling his Judicial Ermine, "you
are fined $1 for contempt of Court."
As the Poor Unfortunate stepped

Farmer was observed to leave the

ground waving a ten Dollar bill in
his hand.
"What brings you to the bar of
this Honorable Court, interrupting

Honor with great severity, fixing his
Supreme Court gaze upon the
White-Haired Figure before him.
"Only trying to Settle up," was
the old fellow's Cheerful Reply:

tempt for this 'ere Court than I hev."
Moral: Don't Crawl under the Can-

The Stockman, published at De-
Funiak Springs, has this to say:
"Five years ago the velvet bean
was regarded as merely an orna-
mental plant, and its use as. forage
was almost undreamed of. Now we
know that it stands at the head of
the list in the estimation of our best
agriculturists. For twenty years the
farmers of the west have been fight-
ing our common morning glory as a
noxious weed, and now it has been
discovered that it is one of the most
valuable forage plants. Verily, the
world do move."
It might have been added also
that it will not be long before the
despised coffee weed will be held in
the same high esteem. Nothing
will touch it while green, but horses,
cows, and, in fact, all stock will leave
any kind of forage for cured coffee

The Tallahasseean has secured the
Services of Mr. W. A. Steams, of At-
lanta, Ga., an experienced and prac-
tical newspaperman, who will assist
&he management in such manner as
may be necessary from time to time.
Any courtesy shower him will be duly
appreciated by the editor.
It is our intention, as soon as some
";rush"'book wor* now on hand
(which consumes nearly all the time
of the linotype machine) is finished,
to give Tallahassee the best news-
paper she has ever had..To that end
nothing will be spartt, and it is for
this purpose that practical help is
broughtlieie from other cities.
Ta4ahamsee is now entering upon
a .period of the greatest prosperity
it ihas eter enjoyed, aqd needs more
Than er-ai live newspaper to keep

peo.e. The Tallahassecan proposes
to fulfill that mission .in every par-
'On our first page this week will
be found a call, signed by the presi-
,dent 'of the Leon County Farmers'
'Institute, for a meeting of the peo-
ple of the county on the 7th day
of September for the purpose of ar-
ranging for a county exhibit at the
-Sate Fair, to bei held at Jackson-
wille in October alext.
While the call is by,the president
,of the Farmers' Institute, it is not
addressed to any qne particular class,
but to all the people in the county,
who are interested in building up
this section. The landowner, be-
cause he has property to sell, the la-
borer because he is interested in new
enterprises comilig in and bringing
with them more employment at bet-

er wages.
Our interests aie common in this
matter, and we .should all put our
.shoulder to the wheel and give it a
.bin and keep it turning.
The development of a new indus-
try will follow the opg di-
rect trade with the: n6'hweat by the

We can say without boasting that
-the flavor 'of theiLeon county melons
will equal if not surpass that of any
other section. The lands in some
parts of our county are too light
for some of the staple crops, like cot-
ton, and the farmers need Some-
thing to make up for this deficiency,
and since these light'lands produ,
the finest melons it is easy to con-
clude that great benefit will be de-
rived from this source.
The melon industry in Georgia is
simply immense; and many farmers
we are reliably informed, have
grown rich from this crop alone.
All this time our farmers have
been shut off for lack of transporta-
tion. Let them save seed and look
forward for more than a local de-
-nand, now that we are sure of quick
low transportation for the next

We take especial pleasure in call-
ing attention .to an article in this
issue from the "Florida Farmer and
. 'Fruit Grower," published in Jack-
sonville, for thle reason that the
Writer most beautifully, classically
-and ruthfully describes the source
,of one of Leon county's leading en-
Aterprises, to-wit, the Jersey cow.
The picture, while beautifully
. drawn; is literally true, and- is an
evidence by the numerous. dairies
and stock farins of the county. We

Leon Co., Fla., Aug. 22, 1)01.
Mr. Editor-At a recent visit to
the city we were surprised at the ap-
pearance of solid improvement and
progress in evidence on every hand.
The prospect of an early comple-
tion of the Georgia Pine Railroad,
giving us direct connection with the
North-west, in fact, with the outside
world, has infused new life in "the
old land," and verily the spirit of
progress is rife. The enlargement
of stores, the erection of magnificent

mercantile establishments, the build-
ing of whole brick blocks, fine resi-
dences and cottages, all tend to open
the eyes of the old timer and we are
simply amazed. Then look at the large
dormitory additions to the Florida
State College,, now" under construc-
tion, to be followed soon by the en-
largement of the Capitol, now being
placed under contract, and we can
hardly realize so much good at once.
Truly,Joo, the people in the county
eteryw~lere are looking on and wak-
ing up. A few years ago these con-
ditions were but prospects lingering
in doubt and uncertainty, and the
tumble in the price of cptton brought
gloom and despondency and we
groped, as it were, in the sad appre-
hension of a paradise lost; but with
the encouragement of the city's bus-
tle and confidence, the introduction
of new crops of tobacco, alfalfa, cas-
sava, ramie, broom corn, etc., the
establishment of fibre plants, factor-
ies, and creameries, with herds of
thoroughbreds grazing "on a thou-
sand hills," a new vision lies before
us, the dawn of a new and brighter
day is upon us, and the glad heart
looks upon its fullness and splendor
with bright anticipations of a para-
dise regained. FELIX.

Mr. Strickland, of lamonia, who
owns a pack of fox hounds, has been
down this week hunting two miles
south of the city on the Trice and
Quail plantations. He was accom-
pawied by S. K. Wallace and C. Q.
Skipper, on his hunts, and in two
days 'they captured five foxes. Mr.
Strickland's dogs cut themselves

There are other breeds as evi-
denced by the administrator's sale a
few days ago, when thirty head of
heifer calves of the Guernsey strain
(registered stock) were sold in a
bunch from one farm.
But the Jersey is the most prom-
inent and considered the most valu-
able. We have the finest grasses and
the best grazing lands in the State.
The cream is separated immediately
after the milk is taken from the cow
by machinery and converted into
butter, chece, etc.

Another instance of the rotten-
ness of the Navy Department's man-
agement during the Spanish War,
and of the enormous sums that fa-
vored parties were allowed to make
by means of the exaggerated prices
paid for vessels, appears from the
selling price of the transports Terry
and McPherson, which were bought
for $350,000, cost $500,000 for re-
pairs and alterations, and were sold
the other day for less than $40,000
for the pair. Obviously, somebody
profited by these extortionate prices.
If the Government had chosen to
exercise its right of eminent domain
which extends over ships in port, it
could have taken these vessels at its
own price, and could still have been
generous without being lavish. But
then, the members of the ring would
have lost their commission.

At a late hour last Thursd.a af-
ternoon, after the Tallahasseean had
gone to press, Governor Jennings
made the following important ap-
Senator L. G. Reeves, of DeFu-
niak, Judge of the First Judicial
Circuit, vice Judge R. E. Maxwell,
resigned to accept the position of
Supreme Court Commissioner.
Senator B. H. Palmer of Lake
City, to be Judge of the Third Cir-
cuit, vice Judge J. W. White; de-
Hon. W. S. Bullock of Ocala, to
be Judge of the Fifth Circuit, vice
Judge re-
signed to accept the position of Su-
preme Court Commissioner.
Dr. J. H. Colson, of Waldo, to be
physician at the State Hospital for
the Insane, at Chattahoochee, vice
Dr. L D. Blocker, resigned to enter
upon private practice.
All of these rate among the most
important appointments Governor
Jennings has been called upon to
make. The appointees are all very
competent gentlemen, and as far as
our information goes these selec-
tions give entire satisfaction.

The next term of the Uni'.ed
States Court for the Southern Dis-
trict of Florida when it meets in
Jacksonville will have before it for
trial a case of world-wide interest.
Of course most of our readers al-
ready know that we refer to the trial
of Col. and Mrs. Post and Mr. Berg-
man, who will be put on trial for
practicing what is known as menial
science, or healing by science. They
were arrested last Friday by the U.
S. authorities, given a preliminary
hearing in Jacksonville, waived an
examination and will appear for
trial at the time mentioned, each be-
ing under a five thousand dollar
bond to be present.
The specific charges against them
are using the United States mails
for fraudulent purposes, and it is
along this line that the cases will be
prosecuted, but to offset the claims
of the government the defense' will
make known many things not here-
tofore generally understood about
the art of scientific healing. Mrs.
Post, also known as Miss Helen Wil-
liams, is the founder of the pro-
fession, and claims among.her cor-
respondents many people said to be
the most prominent of all classes
and conditions of life.
All of the parties mentioned live
at Seabreeze, this State. Seabreeze
is the home temple of mental
scientists. Helen Williams, founder,
is the national president, Charles F.
Burgman is its national secretary,
and other, members of the central ex-
ecutive committee are C. C. Post, C.
Eldredge, A. F. Sheldon, M. F.
Knox and Eugene Delmar. Branch
temples are located at New York,
San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle,
Portland, Chicago, St. Paul and
The evidence collected by the au-
thorities is very interesting reading.
Mrs. Post, it seems, directed all the
patients to select a certain hour of
the day at which they were t. -ab-
sent themselves from every distract-
ive surrounding and fix their mind
upon her, "so that her mind could
connect with theirs and work a
cure." The authorities seem tp.,think
this specially lhrmnful testimony
against Mrs. Post, especially w. they
propose to ahow that she w*ild at
that time be engaged with,t'enter-
taining friends, fishing or.ot.'nvjse
enjoying.horself. ;. 'J :, ,
The -,business has been" 'qn1tt a
profitable one .to Col. and Mrs. Post.
It is said to have brought .hem at
least $20,000 a year, and they have
become quite lavish with spending
it in and about Seabreeze. They
are in fact now erecting a iall for

Mr. E. 11. Moody one of our most
enterprising farmers raised last year
one bale of short staple cotton on one
quarter of an acre of land weighing
about 500 pounds. One stalk of this
cotton had on it 500 open boils of
cotton, a bolls of Nankeen cotton, 2
bolls of long staple cotton and 2
pods of okra (the last three having
-been grafted on the stalk while in
.the bloom state) and was taken to
the Valdosta Exposition or Georgia
State Fairi, but was ruled out on ac-
count of State lines. That scared 'em.
Florida will have to get up an inter-
State affair with those Georgia fel-
lows to get to knock 'em out.

Washington, August 24.-The de-

serve to draw much attention, the
prevailing interest being in wait-

latest in this line is the act of As-
sistant Secretary Hackett, who,
prompted by Admiral Crownin-
shield, Schley's bitterest foe, refused
a day or two ago to inquire from
Admiral Howison whether he did or
did not make the statements at-
tributed to him in a recent sworn-to
interview in a Boston newspaper. In
his nmst extraordinary answer, re-
fusing to submit the qestion, Sec-
retary Hackett most ingeniously put
Cchley into a position where he can
hardly fail to giveoffense toAdmirnmi
Howison, thus prejudicing his cast

M. Wier, the Florida Commissioner
from Tampa, Fla., has been busy for
several days arranging the program
for Florida Day. Governor Jennings

welcome made by the Hon. William

a short address on the resources of
Florida. Col. Charles Parkhill, of
Pensacola, Fla., one of the most elo-
puent speakers of that State, will be
the orator of the day. The presiding
officer will be Col. Wier. Appropri-
ate music will be rendered between
speeches. It is expected that a large

Among the special guests of honor
on this occasion will be "the most
popular newspaper man" and "the
most popular teacher" in Florida,
now being voted for by ballot by the
readers of the Florida Times-Union

a witness of several of these bird In-
quest and had noted the delight the
old men took In discussing a new
found specimen. One day it occurred
to him to provide the Hannibal orni-
thologists with a real circus in the
form of a bird. He killed a crow and
also a barnyard rooster. Plucking out
the tall feathers of both the crow and
the rooster, he substituted the rooster's
tall feathers for those of the crow, pro-
ducing a unique effect. When he had
the specimen nicely prepared, he went
to his father and, handing it to him,
"Here, father, is a very curious bird
I shot. I thought you would be inter-
ested In it"
The old gentleman gazed upon the
specimen with astonishment. That
evening the ornithologists of Hannibal
were assembled in Mr. Clemens' par-
lor. The rare specimen was put before
them. The discussion was long and
learned. The opinions expressed were
various. One thought the bird was an*
offshoot of the bird of paradise fam-
ily; others had equally ridiculous no-
tions as to Its ancestry. But there was
one who refused to be swerved by the
peculiarity of the bird's tall from the
Judgment that it was of the crow fam-

"Why, just look here," he said, lift-
ing the bird by Its tall feathers. He
got no further. The feathers came
out. There was a quick "closing of a
door. Mr. Clemefjs started to leave
the room.
"Gentlemen," he said, "please excuse
me a few moments. I will see Samuel

The writer once spent a Saturday
afternoon in the study of a dignitary of
the church while the ecclesiastic strug-
gled in vain to frame an argument
against gambling to be presented to the
congregation on the morrow. He aban-
doned the attempt Far be it from a
literary journal to assert powers the
possession of which the professionally
religious are fain to disclaim, yet with
submission we even venture to believe
that at least one cogent and effective
argument lies against all forms of gam-
bling-one. namely, based on the truth
that wealth, great or small, is a trust
'and therefore may not be put in risk.
The moralist may declare that the
gambler gets, or at least wants to get,
something for nothing. Men will laugh.
They know better. The winner gave
his chance to lose for his winnings.
For his losses the winner got his
chance to win. But ask the speculator
whether he would gamble with trust
funds held by him for orphans and
then suggest to him the one great truth
that Is seizing hold of men's conscience,
the most hopeful sign in these perplex-
ed days of social unrest, that men are
trustees of all that they call their own.

Posing as a Model.
A curious feature of a model's occu-
pation is her posing for an artist who
Is painting some one else. Wealthy
people are capricious and often do not
care to give long sittings. Therefore,
after the artist has caught the expres-
sion of the face, he will call in a model
to pose for the figure. Some models
do not care to do this, as part of their
enjoyment of their occupation consists
in seeing themselves reproduced on
canvas, but there are others who are
quite willing to help fill out.
Various models have various points
of excellence, and often a painter will
employ at different stages in the prog-
ress of his work from three to four
models for one figure on his canvas.
One model is known for her coloring,
another for her hands, another for her
hair. An artist generally notes in his
address book the characteristics of a
model after her name. These quota-
tions are taken at random from an
artist's address book: "Fine young
Jewess," "English, tall and slim, blond,
costume;" "Good back," "Good figure,
short legs, ivory tone."-Cosmopolitan.

Shoving the Queer.
The game of counterfeiting in this
country Is played by people of all na-
tionalities, and, although some women.
and children are used as tools, men
take the principal parts. After having
made the coin the great problem is how
to convert it into good money. The
maker rarely takes part id that opera-
tion. It is the business of gangs, which
consist usually of two persons, known
as the "holder" and the shoverr."
The holder carries a stock of the
counterfeit money, and the shover has
one piece. T9is he takes to a store or a.
saloon and buys something for a small
amount, and when he comes into the
street the holder sees him from his po-
sition a block away, joins him, receives
the good money and hands him another.
The object is to work so that the
shover, if detected, may plead Inno-
Scee and prove that.the piece Is the
yone that he has and that he has no
er money. Some clever operators
so far as to mix good coin with the
bad. .
To GauWe His Wife's Temper.
"I heard about a peculiar case of hen.
Decked husband recently." said a young
wnman the other dav.

and at other Ome*--wefi, be rather
thinks that married life is a failure.
"He has a peculiar manner of finding
out the state of his wife's feeling to-
ward him. In the evening when he re-
turns home from work he never steps
into the house without going through a
sort of ceremony. First he throws his
hat in the house, and then he seats
himself on the steps and waits. If five
minutes pass without the hat being
thrown out again, he enters and gener-
ally finds his wife very agreeable.
However, if the hat is thrown out
again the unfortunate man seeks hos-
pitality for the night somewhere else
rather than brave the anger of his help-
meet."-Cleveland Leader.

Curing a Mule.
A mule in a pack train which was
usually loaded wit'n salt discovered
that by lying down when fording a
certain stream and allowing the salt
to dissolve he could lighten his burden.
The muleteer once loaded him with
sponges instead, which absorbed water
when he lay down in the stream and
made his burden fourfold heavier. The
mule was cured of his smartness.

Playing It Down Low.
"I haven't much use for Blithersley,"
said the proud papa.
"Why?" asked the proud mamma.
"I listened to him for an hour today
while he told me about what his baby
had said or tried to say, and just as I
was about to tell him about ours he
left me. saying he had to catch a train."

". Truly True Dog Story.
Here is an Australian dog story from
the back blocks: A sheep dog had been
brought from a station into a small
township and fretted after the sheep.
One day not a child was to be seen
about the place, and as evening came
the township became alarmed. Search
was made. and the juveniles were
found huddled up in the corner of a
paddock, where the dyg had rounded
them up. He had no sheep to look aft-
er, so he took the children. The nar-
rator of this lie guarantees it as a fact.

Rather Venomous.
A tenderfoot who visited the Yosemi-
te in the old days thus related his ex-
periencei The stage driver found out
that he was seriously afraid of snakes
and immediately proceeded to make his
hair stand on end.
"Venomous reptiles? You bet. I don't
know what reptiles is, but them snakes
you can just bet your life is venomous.
Why, one day I was coming down here
drivin a wagon, when I catches sight of
a snake in the brush all ready for a
spring. My horses starts, an I whips
'em up fast to clear the snake, don't
you see, afore he could spring. He
makes one clear spring, the snake does,
an-he misses the horses."
"That was lucky. But you-you"-
"Lucky? You bet your life it was
lucky. Hanmissed the horses, the snake
did, but he stuck his fangs clean
through the wagon."
"You don't say!"
"I do say, and maybe you don't be-
lieve it, but it's a fact. He stuck his
fangs clean through that wagon, an
that wagon is swelled up so bad that
we bad to leave it by the wayside and

Rheumatic pains are the cries of p st
and distress from tortured muscles, aching
joints and excited nerves. The blood has
been poisoned by the accumulation of
waste matter in the system, and can no
longer supply the pure and health sustain-

feels the effect of this acid poison; and
not until the blood has been purified and
brought back to a healthy condition will
the aches and pains cease.

In this city the other night one of the
speakers said:
"What has become of the old fash-

of pomposity which was like the divin-
ity that hedged a king in the time when

This feeling which underlies the Ma-

his sight a man who calls on the au-

Geographieal Distribution of Hair.
The geographical distribution of the
hair over the habitable world is, as re-
gards the color, very precisely defina-
ble. The xanthocomic or light haired
races are to be .found north of latitude
48 degrees, which cuts off England,
Belgium, the whole of northern Ger-
many and a great portion of Russia.
Between this parallel and latitude 45
degrees, Including northern France,
Switzerland and part of Piedmont and
passing through Bohemia and Austria,
there is a sort of debatable land of
more or less dark brown hair, and be-
low this line we come gradually upon

Queer Land Tenures.
Sbme of the tenures in England are
very curious. A farm near Broadhouse.
in Yorkshire, pays annually to the
landlord a snowball in midsummer and
a red rose at Christmas. The manor of
Foston is held by a rental of two ar-
rows and a loaf of bread. An estate in
the north of England Is held by the ex-

years of a certain vase owned by the
family, another in Suffolk by an annual
rental of two white doves.

What Once Happened to an Old Pva.
Dealer's Hand.
Were you ever paralyzed? said the
old timer.
"No, and may the"- began the other.
"Well, you see that right hand? It
looks pretty good and strong and it is,
but for about three days once it was
leafler than a frostbitten tomato plant.
S r"You know of course that I used to
make my living playing cards, chiefly
dealing bank. There wasn't a day I
didn't deal bank or in other games six
to eight hours a day. Many a time I
have dealt or played longer.
"One night I was deas 9l;l bank. 1.I
was a good, big game. All at once
when I went to slip a card this old
S right refused to work. I looked at it
f and the fingers were kind of twisted
S inward and the hand from the wrist
was bent downward.
"This stopped the deal for me, and I
told the lookout 'to get busy,' for tae
l players were getting a little queeredd.'

Mrs. S. H. Allport, Johnstown, Pa.,
says: "Our little girl almost strangled
to death with croup. The doctors said
she couldn't live but shff was instantly
relieved by One Minute Cough Cure. All

"I rubbed my right, but It wouldn't
straighten out and it kept this way
until the next day, and then I went to
a doctor. He didn't know me as well
as you do, but the first question be
asked waste.
"'Deal cards a great deal, don't you?'
"'Do you deal with an elbow move
ment or with finger and wrist move-
"'Why, I don't work my elbow.'
"' That explains it. You have card
players' paralysis.'
"This hit me center, and I showed It.-
but the doctor was good and said:
"'Now, don't get flurried. I'll
straighten you up. Just quit dealing
awhile, and I'll give your hand a few
doses of electricity, and you'll be all
"He did it, -nd in about three days
my hand was straight as a string. But
I haven't dealt so much since. There's
many an old timer whose dealing hand
has quit him. And you say you were
never paralyzed?'
"Well, you ain't played cards much."

Bome of the People of the South Hid
Behind Trees In 1833, When the
Iron Hoeme Went By-Th& Countryr'
arnlest Raltroad.
America cannot lay claim to. the.1irst
locomotive or the first railroad. That
great honor lies with England. Yet.
Yankee genius was not very far behind
her, for, when George Stephenson
launched his first real locomotive, the
Rocket, on the Liverpool and Manches-
ter road in 1829, the first spike had been
driven on. the Baltimore and Ohio rail-
road, July 4, 1828, by Charles Carroll
of Carrollton, the last surviving signer
of the Declaration of Independence.
This was the first road started in the
United States, and in 1830 it had reach-
ed Ellicott Mills, 13 miles from Balti-
But the south can claim the honor of
completing the longest railroad in the
world at that date, being the old
Charleston and Hamburg road, now a
part of the South Carolina and Georgia
system, which was begun in 1830, and
by October, 1833, it had 137 miles of
track In operation. In a letter from
Mr. Samuel C. Clarke of Georgia, a
kinsman of the writer, who attained
the extreme age of 91 years and who
had seen-the beginning and the comple-
tion of this road, he thus gives his ex-
perience upon first sight of a locomo-
"One day while going down to
Charleston with a party of gentlemen
to attend the races as we approached
the city we saw in the distance the
new railroad, finished some 10 or 12
miles out of Charleston. It was built
upon piles, longer or short, according
to the nature of the ground. Sometimes
in crossing a ravine the rails were 20
feet from the surface. Our track ran
near this elevated road, and soon a
horrid shriek as from 20 panthers was
heard in the woods. By this time we
were nervous. Elephants and lions
we had heard of, and some of us had
seen them, but what monster was this
whose screams we lIzard? Presently
it came in sight, flying aloft through
the air and breathing fire and smoke,
and our frightened steeds became un-
manageable, and in fact I think that
some of our party were as badly fright-
ened as their horses. If any of my
readers are old enough to remember
the Introduction of locomotives and
how they felt at first sight of them,
they will perhaps understand our sen-
sations that day in the Dine woods.

The laws of health require the bowels
move once each day and one of the pen-
alties for violating this law is piles.
Keep your bowels regular by taking a
dose of Chamberlain's Stomach and
Liver Tablets when necessary and you
will never have that severe punishment
inflicted upon you. Price, 25 cents. For
sale by Wight & Bro.

"A mile or two farther on we came
to a broken waion by the side of the
road, and near it sat a Georgia cracker
smoking his pipe.- On being asked
what was his trouble he replied, 'Well,
stranger, I've often hearn tell of null-
fication, and now I reckon I've saw It
for true.'"
It is somewhat amusing now to read
of the superstitious dread with which
the inhabitants looked upon the build-
ing of these first railroads. Some
thought the smoke of the continual
passing trains would cause a pestilence
or destroy all the crops along the road.
Others were afraid to ride on the cars
for fear of having their breath taken
away, and the people In the cities ob-
jected to the railroad being built be-
cause they feared the smoke from the
engines would soil the clothes which
were hung out to dry.
Many are yet living who looked upon
the terrible, screeching iron monster
with awe and trepidation. Mr. Nat Mc-
Gee of Ivy, Albemarle, tells a joke upon
himself that when he heard the train
coming he jumped from his horse and
got behind a tree, where he viewed it
for fear of being run over. Mr. W. T.
Prout, who was taking a wagon load of
produce to Richmond, When he reached
Gordonville heard the whistle and ter-
rible noise of the approaching train,
and he and his companions were so
scared that they sprang out, leaped the
fence and ran across the field to a safe
distance, leaving the wagon and team
to its fate, but when the train appeared
it was only an engine and one coach.
The first roadbeds were formed, as
has been stated, by driving piles in the
ground, upon the top of which were
placed wooden stringers, in which were
cut a groove for the wheels to run.
These were called "wooden railroads"
and at a distance appeared like the ele-
vated railroads In the cities of the pres-
ent day. The honor of this invention
was contested between John Hartman
of Scottsville, Va., and John Williams,
an engineer of Ohio, but it did not
prove a bonanza to either, for the
wheels were constantly bouncing out of
the groove, and the piles soon after
gave place to solid dirt embankments,
and strap iron rails were substituted
fpr the wooden groove. But the grad-
ing was very imperfect and uneven,
which made riding on one of these
primitive railroads like going over a
corduroy road in a springless wagon,
with the cars bouncing over these
rough rails to the Jingling music of the
windows.-Richmond Dispatch.

An Ingeniou 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 Drnnkentness 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.
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.

The Drones In a Beehive.
To the drones nature has certainly
been very bountiful. They are very
large and strong, have a helmet made
of enormous black pearls, two lofty
quivering plumes, a doublet of irides-
cent, yellowish velvet, a heroic tuft and
a fourfold mantle, translucent and
While the workers have 12.000 facets
to their eyes, the drones are gifted with
26,000; while the workers have 5,000
olfactory cavities in their antennae, the
drones have over 60,000. While the
workers are laboring for the benefit of
the community the drones sail off every
bright morning into space, irresistible,
glorious, and tranquilly make for the
nearest flowers, where they sleep till
the afternoon freshness awakes them.
Then. with the same majestic pomp
and still overflowing with magnificent
schemes, they return to the hive, go
straight to the cells, plunge their heads
to the neck in the vats of honey and fill
themselves tight as a drum to repair
their exhausted strength, whereupon,
with heavy steps, they go forth to meet
the good, dreamless and careless slum-
ber that shall fold them in its embrace
till the time for the next repast-Mae-
terlinck's "Life of a Bee."

Bullighters Afraid of Cows.
It will probably not surprise our
readers to hear that most Spanish bull-
fighters object to fighting cows. The
real reason may, however, astonish
them. A sportsmanlike objection to
persecuting a female animal has noth-
ing whatever to do with it. The fact is
that the average toreador Is sincerely
afraid of a cow.
And he has good reason. The cows of
the half wild breed used for the arena
are much quicker in their movements
than are the bulls. Their horns are
more pointed and more formidable.
They do not lower their heads to the
ground, shut their eyes and charge like
a locomotive upon the rails, but are
*alert and ready to follow every move-
ment of their persecutors. Their war-
like tactics have been adapted not to
blind, bovine frontal attacks, but to the
strategy of active and cunning beasts
of prey, of which the human bullfighter
is only a feeble mimic. If these cheap
Idols of the Spanish populace would
face young and active wild cows which
had just been robbed of their calves,
they might perhaps forestall the butch-
er, but they would, at any rate. do
something to earn their laurels.-Pear-
Am Eoltor and a Golden Hair.
"One beautiful spring morning an
editor found a golden hair lying be-

Flushed with excitement, the editor

Holden describes in The Scientific
American as one of the sights of Cali-
fornia. The salt is first thrown into
ridges by a peculiarly shaped plow,
drawn by a dummy engine with ca-
bles, and then is piled into conical
heaps before being carried to the dry-
ing house and crushing mill The ex-
panse looks like a field of snow. About
2,000 tons of salt are removed each
year, but the supply Is perennially re-
newed by the deposits of salt springs
which flow into the basin. In June the
temperature of the air reaches 150 de-
grees. and only Indian workmen can
withstand the beat and glare.
Tiger's Make Believe Eyes.
Mr. Beddard- of the London Zoologi-
cal society calls attention to a pecul-
iarity of the ears of tigers which he
thinks may be classed under the head
of "protective markings." On the back
of each ear is a very bright white spot.
and wben the ears are directed for-
ward these spots are conspicuous from
the front. Mr. Beddard suggests that
when the tiger is sleeping in the dim
light of a cave or thicket the spots on
its ears may appear to an enemy, look-'
Ing In. as the gleam of Its watchful
eyes, and thus save the sleeper from an
unexpected attack.

Twenty-five years ago this theory was used

The English "Society for the Pre-

by the rince of Wales, was recently
addressed by Sir William Broadbent,
who stated that it was definitely
known that every case of consump-

from some case. There is no such
thing as inherited consumption. There
may be local weakness which tends
to consumption, but the germ has ab-
solutely to be planted in that weak

ambition and aching bones. The blood is
watery; the tissues are wasting-the door is
being opened for disease. A bottle of Browns'
Iron Bitters taken in time will restore your
strength, soothe your nerves, make your
blood rich and red. Do you more good
than an expensive special course of medicine.

"Something New Under
The Sun."

All Doctors have tried to cure CA-
t ARRH by the use of powders, acid
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
storm. Their powders dry up the mu-
cuous membranes causing them to
crack open and bleed. The powerful
acids used in the inhalers have en-
tirely eaten away the same mem-
branes that their makers have aimed
to cure, while pastes and ointments
cannot reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has for
many years made a close study and
specialty of the treatment of CA-
TARRH, has at last perfected a Treat-
ment which when faithfully used, not
only relieves at once, but permanently
cures CATARRH, by removing the
cause, stopping the discharges and cur-
ing all inflammation. It is the only
remedy known to science that actually
reaches the afflicted parts. This won-
derful remedy is known as "SNUF-
CURE," and is sold at the extremely
low price of one dollar, each package
containing internal and external me l-
icine sufficient for a full month's treat-
ment'and everything necessary to its
perfect use..
