speciall Correspondence.)
Buffalo, Sept. 12.-This morning the
Governor of Florida, accompanied by
his star and a number of visiting
Floridifis, entered the exposition
grounds, escorted by a company of
Florida! troops. They halted in front
of their Illinois building, which had
been placed at their disposal for the
day. e Illinois building has a suite
of dra ng rooms connected by a wide
hall, w ich makes an admirable place
for ex ises of this kind. It was
crowd when the Governor and his
party r ached the rostrum. The meet-
ing w called to order by Colonel
Thomas M. Wier, one of the Commis-
sioners from Florida, who presided.
The opening prayer was made by the
.Rev. JJ B. Lay, of Tampa. After
prayer,i Mrs. F. W. Taylor sang as a
..solo a "Song of Thanksgiving," by
.Alettsep. The Director-General then
,delverea an address of welcome. The
response was made by Governor Jen-
nngs he orator of the day, who
spoke at length on the resources of the
'State of which he is 'Chief Executive.
In concluding his remarks, Gov. Jen-
nings ,deprecated the attempted as-
:sassination of the President of the
,United States, and advocated the most
'-stringent measures in dealing with
anarchists in the future. He recom-
mended the deportation of all such
people from our shores. His remarks
mwere loudly applauded. The Gov-
ernor and his staff were then escorted
to the Stadium restaurant by Messrs.
Wier and Pheifer, the commissioners
from Florida, where dinner was serv-
ed. At 5 o'clock they attended a tea,
-given in the Woman's Building on the
Pan-American grounds, at the invita-
tion of Mrs. John Miller Horton, the
-cbairman of the Committee on Enter-
.tair-::erats and iCeremonies. Mrs Hor-
ton always extends a most courteous
welcome to the visiting Governors and
the ladies of their families, and has
been foremost in her efforts to make
their stay at the Pan-American Expo-
sition pleasant. She is the social lead-
er of Buffalo; is immensely wealthy,
but no one has worked harder tor the
success of the exposition or contribut-
ed more to the pleasure of the visitors

E. H. Butler, of the Buffalo Evening
News, will address the meeting on
,"Journalism, North and South." This
will be followed by an address by
Frank E. Harris, bsq., of Ocala. His
subject is "Twentieth Century Jour-
nalism." Mr. Painter, of tne Florida
Agriculturist, and Mr. McCreary, of
the Gainesville Sun, will also speak.
Past Grand Chancellor Sumter L.

Tampa, will speak on "Fraternal Pub-

Miss Sara L. Harris on "Women in
The Florida people are thoroughly
enjoying their visit to the explosion,
and are gratified to know that al-
though Florida Day has been changed
four times, the ceremonies to-day were
most successful.

As the exposition draws to a close
the need of a larger building for the
Louisiana and Texas rice kitchen be-
comes every day more apparent. It
nas been a conspicuous success from
every, standpoint. 'a ne place has been
kept .scrupulously clean, the fare ad-
mirally cooked, and rice has been ex-
ploited in every possible way. The
first "course has always been chicken
gumbo fille soup, and this Creole dish
has become so popular that it w..-
probably be introduced on Noruiern
'tables in the future. Another innova-
tion will be the use of rice flour in
the blace of corn starch in ice cream.
The rice flour is more nourishing, and
its presence cannot so readily be ue-
.tecteil. Rice has entered into the
dressing of the roast chicken served in
the fice kitchen very extensively, afnt
has become popular both as a sepa-
rate disa and as an accompaniment to
-other viands.
Colonel Eggleston and his corps of
assistants have done all in their power
to make everything pleasant and
agreeable for -their numerous guests.
Though hundreds have been turned
away every day they have been treat-
'ed with universal courtesy and kind-
ness. It is very much to be regretted
that more space was not given to this,
the most successful experiment that
has -been tried on the Pan-American
grotuds. It goes without saying that
every exposition in the future will
have a rice kitchen. The sale of the
cereal has increased fifty per cent.
throughout this section of the country
and it has been advertised through the
medium of the press from San Fran-
isco to New York.

A few statistics will give some idea
of the condition of the temperance
reform in the South. In New York
State there are 2,000 more saloons than
in all the fifteen States of the Sou.....
In the Southern States there are 27,-
000,000 people,. and 17,000,000 of them
are living under absolute prohib,.-on.
In Georgia there is one saloon to
every 1,830 people; in New York there
is one saloon to every 276 people.
In Mississippi there is one saloon to
every 2,780 people; in New Jersey
there is one saloon to every 230 peo-
ple. There are 137 counties in Geor-
gia, and 119 of them are under abso-
lute prohibition. In kentucky, the
land of fast horses, beautiful women
and old Bourbon, there are 116 coun-
ties, and 76 of them are under abso-
lute prohibition. Two-thirds of the
population of the South and four-fifths
of the territory have already abolished
the liquor traffic, and it looks as if the
friends of temperance were determined
to run it out of the whole territory.

Mr. Cook, who had commenced to
teach school at the W. J. Dickey school
house, near Bethany Church, Thomas-
ville, Ga., was thrown from his wheel
and hurt internally about the 25th of
August and has not -since then been
able to teach any more. He had com-
menced the school and had taught
about three or four weeks, and was re-
turning from 'i'homasville, where his
mother lives, when this unfortunate
event befell im. Hie had only gone
as far as Henry Quarterman's and had
to stop there and take to his bed. He
became able to return home to his
mother in Thomasville last week. It
is not known when, if ever, he will
be able to resume his school. We are
very sorry for him, his mother, and
the Bethpage folks, wih whom ue is,
very popular. Mr. Cook is an intelli-
gent gentleman, and we do hope that
he will be enabled by returning health
to teach the Bethpage school again
The patrons of the aforesaid school
have just erected a new school house
of plank, from 30 to 40 feet long, and
of breadth in proportion. This house
being in Georgia, was built by private
enterprise. This is the way some of
our quarrelsome patrons of Leon
county ought to be made to do-bui,-
their own school houses or pay for the
bunming of them.
There's a great deal of sickness-as
bad colds and fever-scattered around.
People are picking and carrying their
cotton to the steam gins about through
the country.
Mr. Blount Strickland, Sr., and
grandson, Edgar, and Mr. Bascom
Dickey went to the bay last week, and
we guess are at this %time "getting
fat" on fish and oysters.
The public road leading from Sunny
Hill to lamonia has at last been work-

worked again soon, if it should hap-
pen to rain excessively.
We would have sent more "Dots"
but we have been sick and could not
go abroad to hunt for news. Will do
better next time, we hope.

Mr. H. A. Pass, Bowman, Ga., writes:
"One of my children was very delicate
and we despaired of raising it. For
months my wife and I could hardly
get a night's rest until we began the
use of Pitt's Carminative. We found
great relief from the first botde."
Pitt's Carminative acts promptly and

the taste, and children take it without
coaxing. It is free from injurious

Educational Department, State of

Editor Tallahasseean: Will you kindly
make the following announcement
Though your columns to all who may
be interested:
The scholarships in the State Nor-
mal School, at DeFuniak Springs, not
yet having been awarded for Monroe,
Polk, Citrus and Sumter counties,
therefore, in pursuance of Section 4,
of Chapter 4996, Laws of Florida (1901)
I will hold an examination at Talla-
hassee for the purpose of awarding
these scholarships, and any others that
may then be vacant. The examination
will be open to any eligible person res-
dent in this State, and wil begin at 9
a. m., Friday, September 27th, in the
Senate Chamber. Four or more
scholarships worth $100.00 each per
annum will be awarded for two years.
Very respectfully,

The display of Paine's fireworks in
the evening was very fine. The Gov-
ernor and party viewed it from the top
of the Ohio Building, where the meet-
ing of the Florida Press Association
was also held. The "bombs bursting
in air" were superb in their effect, and
finer than anything of the kind ever
before seen in this country, or any-
where else. The electrical lighting of
the exposition grounds (as the lights
glowed from a faint glimmer to their
full effulgence rivaling the mid-day
sun in its splendor) called forth ex-
clamations of astonishment and de-
light from the Florida visitors, who
now beheld it lor the first "Ame. All
agree that in the combined effect of
illumination, architecture, fountain-
jets, fire works and search lights, it
transcends anything ever seen at the

September 12th was "'lorida Day"
at the Pan-American, and was a great
success. Governor Jennings and his
party accompanied by the State troops
from Tampa, arrived the day previous,
and a goodly number of persons rep-
resenting all parts of Florida assem-
bled in the parlors of the Illinois Build-
ing at 11 o'clock on*Thursday morn-
An appropriate prayer was offered
by Rev. J. E. Porter, of Ocala. An ad-
dress of welcome was given with much
cordiality by Director-General William
E. Buchanan. rne welcomed the Gov-
ernor of Flor..a with special interest,
he said, as one among the first of the
State executives to personally pay a
visit of sympathy to the wounded
Governor Jennings responded in an
address of muen feeling, and -.ien pre-
sented the best array of facts and ag-
ricultural statistics concerning the
Late of Florida to which we ever &s-
tened. It was a strong paper, anut a
universal desire prevailed for its pub-
lication and uaistrubution. As the Gov-
ernor stood on the little platform,
under the beautiful drapery of the il-
linois Building, with the members of
his staff around him it presented a
very graceful picture.
Seated at the end of the sofa was
little Bryan Jennings, who applauded
his father's closing eulogy of McKin-
ley as heartily as any of the enLaIusi-
astic sons of Ohio and Illinois.
Governor Yates, of Illinois, gave a
reception to Governor Jennings anu
his lorida friends just after the ex-
ercises were over. The Illinois Gov-
ernor is a most affable man, and chat-
ted with some of us on Lne porch in a
most confidential way. We thanked
him that Illinois had given us suca a
good Governor, and presented him our
"Florida Hill Country" pamphlet, with
the picture of an Illinois girl orna-
menting its cover.
In response to an urgent invitation
to "come to Florida," Gov. Yates said
he hoped that he might be able to
visit the land of flowers next winner.
Something of a sensation was created
by Mr. T. M. Weir, Florida Commis-
sioner, declaring in his closing address
that if the President's assassin had
attempted his deed in Florida, he
would not have known the next morn-
of the earth" so quick t.iat people
would not have known tue next morn-
ing what he had for breakfast, what
his pedigree was, or even hat time to
spell his name (Czolgosz).
Mr. Weir thenl conducted the Gov-
ernor and party through some of the
attractive features of the exposition,
showing them the splendid live stock
display of cattle and the mammoth
model of Minnesota's $3,000,000 capitol
in butter.
This beautiful model is 25 feet long,
i feet wide and 5 feet high, and is
kept in shape by an elaborate cold-
storage apparatus. One of the big Hol-
stein cows exhibited gives 90 pounus
of milk per day.
After t-.e Agricultural and Horticul-
tural Halls were visited, an elaborate
dinner was served to tue governor and
party in the Stadium by the Florida
Commissioner. -
The dinner was well arranged, and
greatly enjoyed by about forty guests.
After this, a few friends accompanie.A
the Governor to the famous Bostock's
menagerie on the Midway. Little
Bryan Jennings was greatly impressed
at the wild beast show as he saw the
man sitting in a den of twenty-four
ferocious lions, with the huge beasts
piled up like kittens about him, and a
young lady fearlessly facing a dozen
lionesses; while great elephants walk-
ed over the prostrate body of their
keeper. "The Land of the Aidnight
Sup" was also visited, the scenic ef-
fects of which were the most marvel-
ous triumphs in electrical science and
illumination. Aiter this came the great
Cyclorama of Jerusalem and the Cru-
cifixion. Here the scene is darkened
the earthquake and darkness were re-
produced with startling realistic ef-
fect. The courtesy of all the notable
exhibits of the Midway are extended to

to take the people into the confidence
of the management, and as affairs ro-

ers who are making this fair. Corty
after county has come forward with
appropriations and donations, Vitil
twenty have indicated their deter in-
ation to exhibit, and it is mbre an
probable that thirty will be -.ere
when the doors open. Private e ib-
itors will be there in force, an we

P. S.-Dear Friend Trice: This vera
meagre sketch of "Florida Day" exer-
cises is written under difficulties.
It is now the morning (Saturday) of
the announcement of the deatu of th4
President I am seated alone on tho
terrace of the great esplanade, facing
the electric tower, the mammoth
buildings and the most beautiful wae
way of fountain jets and statuary
the world.
The now famed "Temple of Music
is within twenty-five feet o, me as
write, wine two American Indian
(real ones) sit on the steps and I ai
scribbling on the arm of a bench.
From where I now sit I can look in
through the window to the very spot
where the President was shot. (H
stood on the main floor, just to th
right of the organ.)
But what a transformation seen
from yesterday Last night I sa
50,000 or 75,000 people passing like
flowing tide through this great court
of honor and magnifeense. To-day
scarcely see one. Even the
guards are gone or invisible..
The lights are out, the fountains
stopped, and the scene is that of d
serted magnificence.
Where the hum of tens of thousand]
of voices was heard yesterday, silent
now reigns supreme. Even the flag;
on the apparently neglected uuildinVs
droop and flutter at half-mast.
Onty from the great Temple of M
sic does any soundscome. The building
itself is a poem in architecture- an
from the great organ within there no
comes the solemn strains of almost
funeral dirge. The notes of the orga ,
now playing, were Lte last heard b!
President McKinley until he himself
repeated the lines of the hymn last
night, "Nearer, My God, to Thee." Ife.
was shot standing near the organ.) i
As I conclude, a full regiment \f
sol,.ers just passed me, powerless
their strength, and I will follow the
now to where the deau President ln.

Isaac Posey, a colored boy, and will
known to the citizens of Tallahassle,
was operated on for appendicitis bY
Dr. Henry E. Palmer, last Thursday
morning, about 11 o'clock. The bpy
had been sick for about three da s,
and was suffering acutely at the tigie
of the operation. Dr. Palmer was &s-
sisted by Doctors Charles M. Ausloy,
E. M. Brevard, E. E. Philbrick aid
George W. Betton.
It was seen from ,the first that e
boy was suffering from a bad caseoft
the disease, and the moment the bt-
domenal cavity was opened it -ias
found to be full of pus and virus A
large calcareous secretion was foiud
completely stopping up the cavity of
the appendix, which would in itplf
have made the case a dangerous oae.
It had gradually developed into a gin-
eral inflammation instead of alo1al
one and finally ended in what is called
septic peritonitis, .
Although given the best of care aid
treatment Posey died in the after n
(Monday) at about 3 o'clock. A


their next annual meeting on the
grounds during the progress of the
fair in Jacksonville. A meeting of
the leading spirits of the society was
held Tuesday night in Jacksonville,
at which was present E. S. Upham, of
South Lake Weir, to consider the in-
vitation. It was accepted. It was
agreed to invite the Epworth League
and the Baptist Young People's Union
associations of the State to meet with
them and the attendance is expected
to be very large.
"The object of this gathering on the
fair grounds is to show to the good
christian people of the State that this
aggregation of agricultural resources
will be conducted on a high moral
plane, and should have the encourage-
ment and support of all good people."

At a meeting of the Directors of the
University Library, held Friday night,
the 15th inst., the following memorial
notice was ordered spread on the min-
utes, and the secretary was ordered to
furnish a copy for publication in the
local papers:
Conscious of the loss which the ,i-
brary has sustained in the death of
Miss Lizzie Cotten, the librarian, and
Board of Directors wish to put on rec-
ord their appreciation of her long and
faithful service. For over twelve
years-since her election on April od,
1899-she has worked earnestly for the
prosperity of the library. Courteous
and pleasant with all, she made many
friends and no enemy; her most anx-
ious thought seemed always to be what
was best for the interests of the li-
brary; and thus knowing aer faithful
zeal, we can the more earnestly sym-
pathize with those who have been call-
ed to grieve over the broken ties of
relationship, as well as of friendship;
and we wish the expression of our sen-
timents placed upon the minutes as
some evidence of our recognition of
her long continued faithfulness.
By order of the Board of Directors.

have not yet visited this marvelous
Wonderland are reminded that the
time is growing short.
In order to permit every citizen in
the territory traversed by its lines to
take this trip, the Seaboard Air Line
Railway has placed in effect a rate of
practically one fare for the round trin

September 3 to October 20, inclusive;
tickets good to return within twenty
days from date of sale. This liberal
concession should meet' with a nearly
response on the part of the traveling

themselves of the opportunity of at-
tending this last and largest of na-

President McKinley is dead-the
whole world mourns. Whaz ,u an-
ing there is in this short sentence!
At the climax of the celebration of
the President's visit to one of the
greatest expositions the ingenuity .of

on foot, the hilarity of the mutlitudes
is turned to mourning by the flash of a
small weapon in the hands of an an-

sorrow prevails throughout the world.
Mr. McKinley was pre-eminently a
man of the people. v nile he was at
times misguided, by his official advis-
ers, nevertheless, he helu the confi-
dence of the masses as few people
have done since the establishment of
the Republic. i
The country breathes a sigh of re-
lief at the announcement that the new
President wail endeavor to carry out
the policy inaugurated and so success-
fully pursued by Mr. McKaley.

The winding-up of a enoperative col-
ony in a South Georgia county is one
more triumph of the individual over
any effort to curb him. One of the

members of the colony says:

commonwealth destroys the individual
by demanding too great a sacrifice
from the competent man and putting
too great a premium upon incompe-

upon, but mankind is not ready to put
.it into practice.

Atlanta Constitution says: "In this first
principle of life we have the best as-
surance that the man can never.,-be

from the Leesburg Commercial is just

The number of murders and crim-
inal assaults in West Florida is be-
coming very alarming. It is notice-
able, too, that nearly all of them are
committed by turpentine negroes im-
ported into that section. One seldom
escapes the fury of a mob or the
vigilence of the officers but neither
seems to have a restraining effect upon
the culprits.

We chronicle two cases of rattle-
snake bite, both occurring last week,
one here and the other at City Point.
One was treated by Dr. Holmes and the
other by Dr. Wilson, and both patients
are now out of danger.
Drs. Holmes and Wilson use the
same treatment for snakebites, viz.:
the hypodermic injection of a three or
four per cent. solution of permangan-
ate of potash in or near the wound,
and the internal administration of
echinacia in teaspoonful doses every
half hour until five or six doses are
taken, then less frequently, and they
both use strychnine and glonon hy-
podermically to strengthen and sustain
the heart, and also morphine to relieve
the pain.
Persons bitten by a poisonous snake
should at once cut off the circulation
in the limb bitten by tying a hand-
kerchief or other ligature above the
w7und, and then should make a free
intihion including the wound and get
treatment as outlined above by a
physician or if one cannot be secured
*at once, by themselves or their neigh-
bors. As soon as possible after the in-
jection and internal administration of
echinacia the ligature should be re-
moved from the limb, for if it is re-
tained there too long the limb will
mortify and amputation of the limb
becokne necessary.
The subsequent treatment of the case
must be left to the judgment of the
physician as no positive treatment can
be outlined for -every case, as no two
P ill be expttly alUke Every family
should keep on hand a good hypoder-
mic syringe and a bottle of perman-
ganate solution, and enough echinacia
to treat a case should a physician not
be obtainable in a short time.'-Titus-

The Boys' Social Club held a picnic
last Wednesday at Lake Hall, and had
a most enjoyable time. Tully's big
wagons were filled with the merry-
crowd of boys and girls who had pre-
pared and brought their lunch baskets
for the occasion. Those present were:
Mr. R. Alford and Miss Lucille Stock-
ton, Mr. Clyde Evans and Miss Hattie
Perkins, Mr. Julius Evans and Miss
Claude Bowen, Mr. Kent Johnson and
Miss Ebie Quaile, Mr. Ray Household-
er and Miss Susie VanBrunt, Mr. Jo-
seph Shutan and Miss Marion Bowen,
Mr. Edgar Bowen-and Miss Susie Mc-
Griff, Walter McLin and Miss Blanche
Paret Messrs. William VanBrunt,
Flagg Rawls and Ross Bryant had to
go as stags, ah their young ladies were
not allowed to go on account of the
weather. After a jolly ride and good
time getting ready for it, lunch and
lemonade were served.
Mrs. Bowen and Miss Edna Evans
acted as chaperones, and made the
young people have a very pleasant
time. In the afternoon Mr. Cluff, an
honorary member of the club, came
out with Miss Kate Mickler and Mr.
W. N. Sheats, Jr., wih Miss Lucille

Stockton. All had a jolly and very
pleasant time singing, laughing and
merry-making generally. Five boats
were hired for a row on the lake, but

the boy had to row alone, as the chap-
erones would not let the young ladies

"Have by some surgeon Shylock on
thy charge to stop his wounds lest he
do bleed to death." People can bleed
to deatn. The loss of blood weakens
the body. It must follow that gain of
blood gives the body strength. The
strengthening effect of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery is in large
part due to its action on the blood-
making glands and the increased sup-
ply of pure, rich blood that it pro-
duces. It is only when the blood is im-
poverished and impure that disease
finds a soil in which to root. The "Dis-
covery" purifies the blood and makes
it antagonistic to disease. When the
body is emaciated, the lungs are weak,
and there is obstinate, lingering
cough, "Golden Medical Discovery"
puts the body on a fighting footing
against disease, and so increases the
vitality that disease is thrown off, and
physical health perfectly and perma-
nently restored. It has cured thou-
sands who were hopeless and helpless,

and who had tried all other means of
cure without avail.

Miss Maggie Williams was elected,
at a meeting of the Board of Directors
last Friday evening, to be the new li-

Miss Williams is well known to Tal-

elected unanimously among nearly a
dozen applicants for the position.

cessful Year for the Institution.
The forty-fifth annual session of the
Florida State College, at Tallahassee,
begins next Thursday. The old stu-
dents will find many changes on the
campus that will give a new air to the
old college, and the new students will
find many more comforts in the new
dormitories than have been spoken of
through the papers, says a correspond-
ent of the Times-Union and Citizen.
Notwithstanding ,ae continued rains
during the summer, it is expected that
the new buildings will be ready for use
by the 26th.
President Murphree has recently re-
turned from Thomasville, where he
made full arrangements with the ma-
tron of the boarding halls.
Mrs. M. J. Howe, the matron, is not
unknown in Florida, being a native of
Gadsden county; and her husband a
graduate of Brown University, Rhode
Island, was, during his life time, one
of the ablest ana best known educators
in Florida and South Georgia. Mrs.
Howe is a christian lady, pronounced
in culture and re-nemerlt, and a grad-
uate of Wesleyan Female College. For
several years she has resided in Thom-
asville, Ga., and during the paseo. eight
years has kept a high-class boarding
house in that city. The college is lucky
to secure Mrs. Howe for the position..
of matron, and the new session will
open with every assurance that the
management of the dormitories will be"
ProfessorWilliams, the new profes-
sor of English language and literature,
and his family, will arrive next Sat-
urday. Professor Williams was prin-
cipal of a large teachers' summer
school at Arcadia this summer, and re-
signed the principalship of the Sum-
merlin Institute, at Bartow, to accep,
the chair of English in this college.
Professor Buchholz, the new prin-
cipal of teachers' training school, is
expected on the 24th. Professor Buch-
holz is one of the best known teachers
and schoolmen in Florida. He is the
author of the teachers' normal arith-
metic. He was principal of the larg-
est State teachers' summer .school in
the :ate this summer. This school
was conducted at DeLand, in Stetson
University. In addition to directing
the training school, Professor Buch-
holz will be professor of philosophy
and pedagogy in the college.
Other professors will come in dur".
ing the first of next week. During thi
summer Professor Murphree has beet
superintending the construction of th4
new buildings on -ie grounds. Prol
fessor Bierly has been studying if,
Chicago University, and visiting the
laboratories of the largest universities
in the North and East. Miss Millei-
has spent thet best part of the summer
at Buffalo, N. Y. Professor Long spent
the summer with relatives and friends
in Tennessee, spending a season at
Monteagle. Professor Calhoun was a4
Chicago the #greater part of the sur
mer. Professor Calhoun is regarded
as one of the finest linguists in thp
country. At Chicago University he
was called on by the professors iu
charge to address the classes in,
French and German, a compliment to
the ability of Professor Calhoun and to
'the standard of the Florida State Col-
Miss Provence has spent the summer
at Richmond, Va., with relatives.
It is expected that the college will
enroll many more students than usual
at the beginning of the new year.Laau
year 206 students attended. In this
206, twenty-tour counties and five
Southern States were represented.
The college is becoming better
known, and with the unsurpassed fa-
cilities for taking care of the non-
resident students, it is no exaggeration
to say that the patronage will be aug-
mented at least 50 per cent. during the
next two years.

In the early part of this year the
directors of the Water Works Company
adopted a resolution fixing a minimum
rate of $2.50 a quarter for meter wat r
consumers. The effect of this was
to about double the rate for water in
the residence part of the city. Tte
City Council asked for an injunction
in the chancery department of Judge
Malone's Court. The matter has just
recently been decided in favor of the
water company, and they are sending

out-a circular this week requesting all
meter consumers to call at the oijce
and sign new contracts.
The Council proposes to carry the
matter still further, and has instructed
the City Attorney, Hon. Geo. P>.
Raney, to t ke an appeal to the S-
preme Court. Whether or not the ap-
peal will operate as a supersedeas
against the! enforcement of the new
regulation ve are not informed.

owner of the doe, while he and hi:
companion got out of the buggy, has
tily loaded their guns, and stealthil:


The President Oun-Classed by the
Meek-Eyed secretary.
The Tallahase liars' Club was in
regular weekly seUon. The conver-
sation drifted to d s and the man;
remarkable feats performed by then
under excitement o the moment.
"Why" said the blear-eyed presi
dent of the club, "IC nce owned a dof
that was all right Xitil he saw a tre
falling. The darnm fool seemed t
think it his bounder duty to get unde
every one that felliaround the plac*
and in the spring +ien I went out to
split rails I always chained him se-
"One day I was cutting down a very
large tree, and jus as it commenced
falling I heard old "fowser coming and
yelping like the de il had u.m by the
tail. I tried to stop im, but the blam-
ed fool was so excIed that he rushed
by me and right unper the falling pine.
"I saw it fall squire across his back,
and did not even gqrto see, for I knew
he was mashed intisausage.
"Half an hour lair I saw him going
limping off towardithe house. Know-
ing the tree had fallen on him, I went
to investigate. Suri enough there was
where he had been mashed into the
ground just enough to make his im-
print in the sand, but a small log, not
more than four to si inches, had save.,
him. He happened to be parallel with
it, and had pulled himself out. I sup-
pose he was stunnpd at first, or he
would have made esme outcry."

"That's nothing,"taid the weak-eyeC
secretary. "I once Awned a dog named
Lion. He was a tig black cross be-
tween a cur and a Jewfoundland. Hi
was the devil for running rabbits, ano
if they gave him Ohalf a chance he
would run them do;rn.
"One day I was io the field plowing
and heard him aftq a rabbit down in
the branch near by; At noon he fail-
ed to show up for Sinner. The whole
family became alartned, he being a
great pet, and upon returning to work
I went down wheti I had heard him
to investigate.
"There was an old cypress stump,
twenty or twenty-five feet high, and it
was hollow. I saw-where he had been
scratching around he roots, but there
was no dog in sigh .
"Thinking perhaps he had been
snake-bit and started home I pulled
out my whistle anl gave one or two
"Well, sir, that blamed dog com-
menced whining Vom the cy-
press stump.
"I stuck my heid inside, and sure
enough there he was, not more than
eight feet up. B-t it was a pretty
close fit, and the splinters let. by the
decaying tree all stuck up. He could
not drop back for splinters sticking
him. .*
"It is well know that a dog is more
afraid of a bear than anything else,
and realizing that only one thing re-
mained, and that one thing for Lion
to go out at the top of the stump. I
scratched on the sides of the hollow
and growled like a bear.
"Well, sir, old Lion gave a little
whine, and rotten- wood fell all over
my head. As he reached the top it
broke off with him and he hit the
ground running.
"When I reached home at nig-.. it
took all sorts of coaxing to get him
from under the bed, where he had lay
curled up all afternoon.
"It was a mean trick to play on
Lion, but what could I do?"

The president's face by mnls time
had assumed a terribly disgusted ex-
pression. It was evident that he did
not care to prolong the meeting, and
a wink from the vice-president to the
chaplain brought a motion to adjourn
before the past grand master liar could
get the attention of the club.

Two Tallahasseans were out quail
shooting with the,"finest pointer that
ever flushed a jcovey." They were
making next to tie world's record
drive along the public road, where
"Dick," the faith Il bird dog, came t
a point that told hem as plainly as it
the birds were in pen view, that the

approached the birds from opposite di-.t.
Dick's nose showed slight animation
but the remainder of him was as Stold
as an Egyptian mummy and as flrM a
the rock of ages, so bent was he upon
holding them until his master gave
the word.
Carefully the hunters approach
with an occasional warning to each
other "not to shoot in this direction
when they get up."
But no quaiL
"See them?" called out one of the -
"No, but I hear Them," replied his
[ -ompanion.
Stuil no birds got up.
The dog's master knowing that the
birds were therq, else the dog would
not point that *unch of bushes, and
wishing to get 4he first shot, ranged
away at the spotuwhere they were sup-
posed to be.
"Quack, quacki quack, 'chuck, chuck,
chuck," came fr m an old siting hen
"Wha' to yo' shootin' my chickens
you ornery white buckra," yvleed an
old black aunty, as she.emerge-d front
a cottage right at them, but which had
heretofore been :unnoticed.
It is hardly worth while to stat' that
the hunters suddenly discovered that
they had business elsewhere. Nor did
they tell the story upoa reaching town.
It has only just leaked out from the
parties themselves the incident hav-
ing become! old.

Several days ago a dead child was

How News of President's Death

Was Received


Other Interesting Items

of News

About the Capital.

Washington, Sept. 14.-The attack
on the President, his illness and un-
expected death has monopolized the
attention of Washington this week to
the exclusion of almost all other
news It is not too much to say that
President McKinley was the most pop-
ular President who had been in
Washington for a good many years
-probably since the era of good feel-
ing in Monroe's time, three-quarters
of a century ago. Even those who
were opposed to his methods and to
his aims were fond of him as a man,
and realized that his course would al-
ways be conservative and directed by
a high sense of duty. Hence, his in-
juries came home to the people here
with greater force probably than they
did to the people of any other section,
with the possible exception of his
neighbors at Canton. Further, there
are more people here who had a selfish
interest in his life than in any other
part of the country. Mr. Roosevelt's
civil service record made it certain
that no backward step wil be taken in
that direction, but this is small conso-
lation to the thousands-of higher of-
ficers who do not come within the
protection of the laws, and who wihi
inevitably be changed sooner or later
by the new President. Among these
are the Cabinet officers, who will, of
course, promptly tender their resigna-
tions. President Roosevelt-may ask
some of them to remain, or he may
make a clean sweep, as President Ar-
thur did.
To confirm his new appointees, an
extra session of the Senate will be ne-
cessary, but there will be no need of
convening both Houses unless Mr.
koosevelt wishes to do so. The law
provides that in case of the death of
the President and Vive-President, an
extra session must be called within
twenty days, but so long as either sur-
vives, one is not essential. It may be
mentioned that in case of Mr. Roose-
velt's death, Secretary Hay, or rather
the new Secretary of State, would suc-
ceed, to be followed in turn by the
other Cabinet officers.
One result of the assassination of
President McKinley will undoubtedly
be the passage of a -law excluding or
banishing anarchists. Seven years ago
an attempt was made to amend the
immigration laws so as to exclude
these. The bill for the purpose passed
both Houses, but on going to the
House for the second time on account
of amendments added in the Senate,
failed to receive consideration before
the end of the session, and hence fail-
ed to become a law. Under it, if it
had been adopted, Emma Goldman
could have been excluded and her
pernicious teachings prevented from
reaching the ears of Czolgosz. Now
once again the idea has been taken up,
and will undoubtedly be considered at
.ne next session of Congress. Mean-
while, Major Sylvester, chief of police
of Washington, has circulated a plan
which has met wimt the approval of
all the members of the Board of Gov-
ernors of the National Association of
Chiefs of Police of the United States
and Canada providing for a bureau of
the Deparment of Justice to be known
as the Bureau of Criminal Identifica-
tion, whose employes shall work in
consonance with the foreign police in
keeping track of anarchists.
Admirals Dewey and--Benham, of the
Schley Court of Inquiry, have given an
excellent illhistration of their impar-
tiality by the proper manner in which
they decided that Admiral Howison
was disqualified for sitting as a mem-
ber of the court. Their decision is re-
garded as a rebuke to Secretary
" Hackett, whose course in refusing
even to investigate the Admiral's bias,
when the facts against him were
brought to his attention, has had such
a marked !fect on the feeling of the
uantry. From present appearances,
S-case against Schley is falling to
by its own weight, and unless
^Deirtment has something up its
will result not only in a tri-
acquittal of Admiral Schley,

hbim officially all the credit of

venues of the government--common
decency might. seem to demand at
least that no further demands should
be made on-a patient people. But
probably a universal cataclysm woui,
not. prevent the Grand ._rmy of the
Republic from demanding more pen-
sions and denouncing every official of
the government who insists upon an
honest administration of the laws.That
is the only crime which can be charged
against Commissioner Evans, yet
..ational Encampment of the Randd
Army has heartily applauded a re-
tiring Commander who alleged that
ne is guilty of "malfeasance in office"
and insists upon his removal from the
position of Commissoner of Pensions.
In the presence of a national calamity
It might be thought that --e Grand
Army would have been more con-
cerned about the welfare of the coun-
try than about the success of pension
grabbing schemes. That does not ap-
pear to be the case, however. rom
the point of view of pension grabbers,
any official who does not strain the
law and open the Treasury doors to
applicants for the Government's
bounty is guilty of "malfeasance."
What to these Treasury looters ap-
pears to be a crime will be regarded
by honest men, regardless of party, as
a signal service to the people. The
Grand Army may still be a political
factor to be reckoned with, but if the
raids upon the Treasury continue, the
time may soon come when the ques-
tion of pensions will cease to be a
political one, and when both parties
will combine to protect the people
from exorbitant demands.

Smith was captured, however, and
taken away from the angry mob who
followed him, by Robert Godwin, who
kept him until Friday morning, when
he turned him over to Sheriff Pearce.
Smith wa raised at a place between
Station 1 and 2 on the Leon county
side of the line. He claimed to have
fought in the Cuban War, and has
been working in the turpentine bus-
iness for the past year. He lived with

He was working on Mr. Fleming's
turpentine farm at the time of the
trouble. He was at work when a boy
and young girl came by who were
roaming the woods in search of bark
and one thing and another. Smith
sent the boy off for a drink of water,
it is said, and then attacked the girl,
who was only a young girl of twelve
years, and committed the act for which
he was arrested.
Sheriff Pearce brought him before
Judge Whitfield Monday morning for
trial. As the evidence was clear, and
the .girl herself was present and ,es-
iaied at the trial Smith was convicted.
In fact, he admitted the deed and plead
In default of bail, he was commit-
t'd to jail until the December term of
the Circuit Court.
Smith may consider himself lucky in
escaping from the fury of his own peo-
ple, who would surely have lynched
him but for the efforts of Godwin.

A great many women are subject to
spells of dizziness, spots before the eyes,
and a ringing noise in the head. These
symptoms are commonly associated with
liver trouble as the result of a diseased

Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discov-
ery cures diseases of the stomach and the
allied organs of digestion and nutrition.
It cures through the stomach diseases
seemingly remote from that orgar., but
which have their origin in :. diseased
condition of the stomach and digestive
and nutritive system. Hence, cures of
heart, lungs, liver, kidneys, and other
organs are constantly effected by the
use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Dis-

A meeting of me Tax Committee was
held on Thursday, the 12th inst, at
the Court House, to hear complaints
by property holders on tue recent de-
cision of the Commissioners on prop-
erty valuations raised by them. In
many cases the valuation of the prop-

The Commissioners present were as
follows: Messrs. E. C. Smith, WV. J.
Johnson, W. L Moor, W. D. .,Louta-
mire and L. C. Yaeger. The number

what the Commissioners had expected,
and were soon settled with very little
difficulty or controversy.

From Its

Humble Beginning In
a Small Town to the
Presidency of
the United

Long and honorable was the
public career of William McKin-
ley. It extended from the time
when, as a mere stripling, he held
sway in a log cabin country school
to the tragic moment when, as
chief executive of the nation, he
was felled by the assassin's bullet.
During all that time his record
suffered neither blot nor blemish.
He was tested as a soldier, as a
lawyer, as a politician, as a states-
man, as the head of the nation.
In each case he stood the test.
In private life he began by be-
ing a manly boy, a dutiful and obe-
dient son. Hie continued as a
faithful and loving husband, one
whose example has had its good ef-
fect on the national character.
His life was typically American,
the life of an American of the best
type. And through it all he was
a patriot. Above personal ambi-
tion were ever in his mind his
country and his country's good.

William McKinley came from that
dominant race that has furnished this

of its greatest sol-

state not in a great public way. but
simply as faithful and devoted citi-
zens, not striving for particular emi-
nence, but notable for sturdiness of
character and integrity.
It was among such people and of
them that William McKinley was born
at Niles, in Trunmbull county. 0.. Feb.!

an excellent edu-

cation when a girl, spent some time
abroad and became her father's assist-
ant in his bank, where it was said that
her fair face attracted bouquets and
bank notes to the window. "She must
be trained," said her father, "to buy
her own bread if necessary, and mot .to
sell herself to matrimony."
She had many suitors, but Major Mc-
Kinley. then a rising young lawyer,
vanquished all rivalry, removed the
young woman from the cashier's win-
dow and won from honest James Sax-

No less than his at-
tention to his wife,
his thought and
care for his moth-
er, particularly
since his father's
death In 1892, have

auttracte comment.
It had been his custom while at home
in Canton to take his mother to church
each Sunday morning. When he went
to Columbus as governor, he determin-
ed to keep up the practice as much as
possible, and unless the press of public
business was very great he always
slipped quietly'over to Canton from the
state capital on Sunday mornings and
walked to church with his mother on
his arm. .The next train would carry
him to Columbus, where his wife
awaited his coming. .

result of the elec-

after fourteen
years' continuous
the Ohio statesman

was defeated for re-election.
During his gubernatorial campaign
in 1893 McKinley visited eighty-six of
the eighty-eight counties of Ohio and
made 130 speeches. lie was elected by
a plurality of 80,YJ5. up to that time
the record in Ohio.
The policy which Governor McKin-
ley pursued during his four years of
occupancy of the gubernatorial chair
was outlined when In his inaiurln ,
address he said: "It is my desire to co-
operate with you in every endeavor to
secure a wise, economical and honora-
ble administration and, so far as. can.
be done, the improvement and eleva-
tion of the public service."
From the day of his inauguration
Governor McKinley took the greatest
Interest in the management of the pub-
lic benevolent institutions of the state,
and he made a study of means for their
betterment. During his first term the
state board of arbitration was created,
and he made the workings of the board

the entire four years of his administra-

with labor problems would be complete',
without some mention of the tireless,
energy which he displayed in securing
relief for the 2,000 miners in the Hlock-'
ing valley mining Jistrict who early in
1895 were report-d out of work and
destitute. The news first came to the
governor one night at midnight, but be-
fore 5 o'clock in the morning he had
upon his own responsibility dispatched
to the afflicted district a car containing
$1,000 worth of provisions. Later he
made appeals for assistance and finally
distributed among the 2.732 families in
the district clothing and provisions to
the amount of $32.790.95.
McKinley's nomination and election

events of 1897, culminating in 1898 in
the war with Spain, and the acquisi-

dent Hayes, and up to the timq of the
latter's death he recognized the ex-
president as his adviser and counselor.
He was in General Hayes' regiment
during the civil war. General Hayes
knew him and his father well, and saw
in the dashing young cavalier the germ
of greatness. He needed a counselor,
an adviser, a friend, and General
Hayes watched over him with the
filial love, devotion and pride of a
The war ended. McKinley still re-
mained an object of hope, of interest
and pride to General Hayes. McKin-
iey became a candidate for congress
and was elected. When Hayes was
president. McKinley was In the house
of representatives. The major was a
frequent welcome visitor at the White
House. One day the president gave
McKinley advice, which made McKin-
ley the foremost champion of a pro-
tective tariff. President IIayes thus
spoke to the young representative:
"To achieve success and fame you
must pursue a special line. You must
not make a speech on every motion
offered or lill introduced. You must
confine yourself to one particular
thing. Become a specialist. Take up
some branch of Il gislation and make
that your study. V'hy not take up the
subject of tariff? Being a subject that
will not be settle for years to come.
It offers a great fteld for study and a
chance for ultimate fame."
With these words ringing in his ears
McKinley began studying the tariff
and soon became the foremost author-
ity on the subject.
The day upon which the "McKinley
tariff bill" was passed in the house
must always stand as the supreme mo-
ment of McKinlef's congressional ca-
reer. The bill. by ~idroit parliamentary
generalship whicl had prevented it

Things had gone on quietly in the
Spilkins family for a .week, since the
events in our last chapetr. Mr. Spil-
kins had his troubles, to be sure, "al-

in," as Mr. Spilkins grumbled out
when the office and house rent, as a
last annoyance had been paid and sent
away for another six months. Mr.
Spilkins always paid his rent in ad-
vance and once in six months.
"There," exclaimed Mr. Spilkins.
"$5.73- left from that brand new $500
bill Mr. Sheldon gave me last week in

Before the week was over, however,
he had renewed his bank account with
$100 from Mr. Jessup from a real es-
tate transaction, $250 for sale of a
building lot in Hubbardstown and sev-
eral smaller sums for various deals
with several parties, swelling the sum
to nearly the amount which he had
expended the week previous, and so
Mr. Spilkins smiled once more. mArs.
Spilkins smiled, for Pete had cut
another tooth, though Mr. Spilkins had
not lost one or troubled himself fur-
ther about the false set.
Pete did not smile, he was cross,
shut his eyes and bawled, and seemed
to be wondering where he came from
and what he was alive for. things
were going along very quietly in the
Spilkins family, when an event hap-
pened that upset, this. time, Mrs.
The hired girl had, the day before,
gathered up the hall matting of straw
shaken it, swept it and rolling it up,
had placed it beneath Mrs. Spilkins'
bed until the hall should have been
washed or scrubbed, and dried pre-
vious to putting it down again. Mrs.
Spilkins did not know tnat the mat-
ting was beneath her bed. All was
quiet as usual, that night, and both
Mr. and Mrs. Spilkins had reared with
Pete at an early hour.
But Pete didn't want to retire so he
pretended to sleep, growled a little oc-
casionally, no doubt frowned often, if
he could have been observed, and be-
came rather restless. Pete wankeu his
milk bottle. He didn't know exactly
how to tell Mrs. Spilkins this, so he
turned ano tossed, to and fro, growled
and did a number of things that babies
do to get what they want. But it
was no go. Mrs. Spilkins was sleeping
soundly, likewise Mr. Spilkins, and nis
actions produced no other effect than
to get himself more fully waked up
than ever. At last he kicked Mr.
Spilkins in the pit of the stomach
and yelled. That fetched it sure
"Eh! Hey! Hello! What's the mat-
ter," said Mr. Spilkins, waking up sua-
denly and then awakening his wi.e.
After realizing the situation, Mrs.
Spilkins thought of a number of
things, but rejected each in its turn,
until she thought of the milk bottle.
This was on a chair near the bed, and
she easily reached it. In bringing it
over, however, from the chair s-e .lit
the end on the corner of the bed and
dropped the stopper or rubber on the
floor, which rolled beneath the bed.-
"There,' said Mr. Spilkins, "if you
had got up first and got the bottle as
you ought to have done, it wouldn't
have happened."
After this sort of an Irish bull, Mr.
Spilkins turned over and went to
sleep again.
Mrs. Spilkins patiently got up out
of bed, stooped down to reach the
stopper, ran her arm beneath the -ed
for this purpose, and straightway en-
countered the bristly end of the mat-



arms and fainted dead away upon the
Of course, all was confusion in
an instant.
Mr Spilkins jumped up, grasped the
broom, and poking beneath the bed
cried: "Come out from beneath there,
you villain!"
The servant, meanwhile, aroused by
the noise, rushed in and began to try
to bring Mrs Spilkins to.
It was some time before the lamp
was lit, order was restored, and all
hands discovered tne burglar in the
shape of the roll of matting, and quiet
reigned once more.
"Well, you did it that time," said

"Who wouldn't have done it, sir?"
said Mrs. Spilkins.

to sleep again, as did both Mr. and

For ms ny reasons inspection of nur-
series has been a rather perplexingz
busin-ess or many years- Asmost every
State has a law of its own 4nd in the
interpretation and execution -of such
law theofficial inspector, usually and
for the most part for good reasons,
further insists upon the right of being
a law unto himself. efforts have been
made at various '..des to secure the
passage of a n-t onal law that would
give some uniformity or requirement
and usage but because of supposed
conflicts of interest between tree sell-
ers and tree buyers all attempts of the
kind have failed.
Realizing the standard oft,,require-
ment demanded by the purchasing
public in a certificate of freedom from
insect and fungous pests and the con-
stantly increasing danger of frictionn
between inspectors and their; constit-
uent nurserymen as well as between
the inspectors of different States ow-
ing to such diversity of practice a
considerable body of State inspectors
met in conference in Chicago last Jan-
uary and took all steps possible to
reach a basis of uniform practice and
common understanding. With this
movement I am in hearty sympathy,
and wish to give as wide publicity as
possible to their proceedings. All cer-
tificates already issued or which shall
be issued by me this year will be
found to conform to the regulations
adopted by this Society of Official Hor-
ticultural Inspectors. I regard it as
very fortunate that Dr. Forbes, of Il-
linois, was the prime mover in effect-
ing this organization, as his well-
known reputation for care and con-
servatism will ring a confidence to
both public and nurserymen, the value
of which can hardly be overestimated
at his stage or accomplishment. It
is to be hoped that the principles
which have been emphasized in the
birth of the society will continue to
guide it, and that its right to general
confidence will never be forfeited by
indifferent regard for the rights of
any of the parties at interest The cir-
cular sent out by Dr. Forbes is as
Chicago, January 4, 1901.
t.t a conference of horticultural In-
spectors of the States of New York,
Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Ken-
tucky and Tennessee, held at the
Palmer House, Chicago, January 4,
1901, the general sunoject of the meth-
ods and objects of nursery inspection
was broadly discussed, with special at-
tention to certain details, in which a
comparison of views was thought to
b? particularly desirble.
1. Difficulties having been made by
certain State officials with respect to
the acceptance of inspection certifi-
cates from other States, this subject
was discussed at length, and the opin-
ion was unanimously expressed by the
conferene,- that State insp actorss

In States having a considerable busi-

deemed necessary that vineyards from
which cuttings were sold should be in-
spected and certified as nurseries.
6. It was generally agreed with re-
spect to the wooly aphis that gradually
increasing pressure should be brought /
to bear for the reaction of this in-
sect in nurseries, but that no uniform
practice could be established because
of wide differences in its abundance
in different States. The New York
practice of requiring the rejection and
destruction of trees sufficiently infect-
ed to show knots on the roots was
commonly approved. It was also
thought well to require insecticide
treatment, with kerosene emulsion, of
nursery trees whitened by this insect.
4 similar policy of gradually increas-
ing pressure of requirement was also
recommended with repsect to those
States where it is not now generally
and uniormly distributed. It was held
at present to be unwise to require the ,
destruction of trees exposed to infec-
tion with crown gall, but not visibly -
so infected. Trees actually bearing "
this gall either at the crown or on the ,
