A, SWEET BABY- AT REST.
Eunice Christie, Atfant daughter of
Dr. and Mrs. E. Cfiristie, of Miccosu-
kie, Florida, died Tuesday, October 1,
1901, aged two years.
A short little life, but one full of
sweetness and light; and one that
made home and all around her bright
For two weeks the little sufferer bat-
tled with the fell destroyer, but alas!
the storm proved more than the frag-
ile little flower could brave.
Everything that adoring parents andl
sympathizing friends could do proved
of no avail, and she yielded up her
young life to Him who gave it. The
home on earth is sad without her
cheery little life. For the little one
had laid a strong hold upon the pa-
rents and..fyiends .w,ho had fondly
hoped that they were seeing the dawn-
ing of a long bright life. During her
stay with us little Eunice had made
many friends.whose names shewas just
beginning to call: Their names lisped
by those baby Mps was a sound they
never tired of hearing. To know her
was to love her. She was a great fa-
vorite in the little village. 0 how these
friends felt for this dear little child
during those long days of suffering,
and for the heart-broken parents, who
watched beside the couch and saw the
life of their dear darling baby amidst
great suffering, slowly slipping away'.
The heart of the community goes
out in sympathy to the bereaved pa-
rents and little brothers.' May the
Giver ameliorate their grief and may
they find comfort and solace in the
fact that her pure soul has only pre-p
ceded them to that haven of: rest.
Alas! clouds'gateredlquickly. and the storm
Fell without warning on our tender bud.

The %tar that set upon our earthly home,

S*TE LIFE ASSURANCE.
Mr. Editor: In the last isaie of your
paper there was an article crg tLe sub-
ject eo a State Bureau of lo e Assur-
ance. This article was fori.fled with
arguments and facts which wouldd not
well bt" gainsaid, but they.were not
the only good words which 4)uld have
been said in behalf of such tn institu-
tion and its beneficent effelet.
For instance, when the avenue of
the bureau shall have so increased as
to lead to successive reductions in the
cost of its policies, with eaci reduction
a class of citizens who co ld ill af-
ford to purchase at the predl ing high
rate of purchase, would aail them-
selves of the privileges uitil finally
the class of humblest capital sts would
he able to do so. Conceive the condi-
tion of the man with a fami in what-
ever grade of social life sti ggling to
maintain his loved ones an oppressed
with (easpless labor. care and fore-
bodings, haunted with the tar of his
taking off. leaving them sildenly be-
reaved and without resources. Such
a man, his policy from his State sure
of solvency, his mental power relieved
from itfdepression, as thou h a moun-
tain weight had been hurlet4off, woulu
labor with an energy b ced with
happiness; suen a man wou't be saved
from immorality, from intemperance,
from crime, all of which, ,*eset with
temptation, the average laborer suf-
fering under the above co litions. In
such communities crime w Id dimin-
ish, and thereby a great bu len on the
State would be lightened, nd intem-
perance also, the great tteway to
crime and immorality, woIld fail to
seduce such men. The benefit which
would accrue to any community where
such inhuences are at wor would be
obvious to all. and would )ie as near
as may be a fairly good rel4 esentation
of a heaven on earth. G.
COTTON CROP SH RT.
That the cotton crop wo d be short
has been expected all aloe since the
heavy rains began last spri.ng. It was
therefore surprising to maiy that the
fleecy staple opened at th4 beginning
of the season at such a low price.
Concerning the conditions now exist-
ing in the market, the Savasnah Morln-
ing News of a few days ag~ said:
"It was to be expected that there
would be a sharp advance rn the price
of cotton on the showing i ade by the
Agricultural Department i its report
yesterday. The departme 's estimate
*is a 10,000,000 bale crop. I seems that
cotton has suffered a gre deal from
one cause or another in :bot all of
the cotton States. In our Ltlanta dis-
patches yesterday it was stated that
the Agricultural Departn nt of this
State had received reliable information
from Texas that the crop i that State
would be from 800,000 to 1O,000 bales
below that of last year.. V
"The information from Washington
which we publish this morning does
not come as a surprise. It .imply con-
firms the information thatcotton men
have had in their possessabn for sev-
eral nays-information 'Which was
thought to be correct, but vhich need-
ed confirmation to justify an advance
in the price of cotton. t
"Assuming that the crorwill not go
above 10,000,000 bales, a, least not
much above it, there is no ood reason
why the price of cotton should linger
around S cents a pound. $!t ought to
go to 9 or 10 cents very soon. The
price was above 10 cen* last year
when the outlook for a b.sk demand
for cotton goods was not f. promising
as it is now."

WHAT GOVERNMENT IS DOING
FOR THE RIVERS.
It is not generally known that the
Goveribment, through the United States
Geological Survey, has been making a
careful study of the rivers and the un-
derground 1iater supply of the country.
So important has this work become.
and so helpful to many widely divers-
ified interests, that a special branch,
known as the Division.of Hydrography.
has been organized to conduct it. This
division has been in existence since
188l, aiIl- pushing fts inv6-i4yuON&
as rapidly as the appiopilatlon will
admit. Broadly speaking, its work con-
sists of a careful insption of th hab-
its and behavior of rivers, i. e., the var-
iation of the amount of their flow
throughout the year and from year to-
year. This entails a study of theit
drainage basins and an accurate meas-
urement of their discharge. The know-
ledge thus obtained is the necessary-
foundation on which all enterprises
contemplating the use of rivers must
depend, In the East many rivers valu-
able as a source of water supply are
under examination. In the West for
these purposes also and for irrigation
they are being measured. The very
important matter of river pollution is
one which demands the same initial
investigations, and the Government is
rendering its assistance to check and
avert this growing evil. Out on the
great plains, where the rivers are few
and the rainfall is light, the under-
ground well waters, so necessary to the-
inhabitants, are mapped anm thus made
A number of States in different parts
of the country have seen the value of
this work and have made appropria-
tions to have it continued within their-
own borders more rapidly and fully
than the Government could afford to
conduct it The country's water re-
sources, which are among the greatest
it possesses, are practically inexhaust-
ible and have but just begun to be de-

GOVERNOR ON THE FAIR.
En route to Brooksville last Friday
evening the Governor was interviewed
by a Times-Union and Citizen reporter.
Among other things he is quoted, by
that paper as saying:
"We cannot estimate what splendid
results will follow from the holding of
the fa;r and the carrying of it through
in t. successful manner. AlD Florida, i.
it ter, sted in the project, andL& I-
thit .1 klsonville will be' crowded with
visitors. I am heartily in fav6r of the
fair, and I will lend every effort to aid
in its success. I believe that if every.
county were fully impressed with the
importance of making an elaborate
exhibit we would have one of the most
unique and interesting displays of pro-
ducts ever seen at a State exposition.
Florida's resources are rich and varied,
and in interest they are not to be sur-
passed in the world."

laneous products the same holds good.
An examination of the actual report
of the crops for the year 1899, as con-
tained in the volume before me, shows
this to be true in the fullest sense of
the word; and I am assured that the
- unpublished report of stock and crops
for the year 1901, so far as received,
not only corroborates this statement,
but shows that the people of Florida,
the farmers all over the State, are be-
ginning to open their eyes to what is
called "method in farming," "scienti c
farming," or "brains in agriculture,"
as it has been variously termed-in
fact to "brains" and "common sense."
If we can once get an old time farm-
er to thoroughly understand what fer-
tilizer to use and when and how much
for ea'"h especial soil and crop, mil-
lions of dollars will be added to the
crop va.ues of that section. If we can
once make him thoroughly understand
that rotation of crops means some-
thing more than potatoes, corn, hay;

Now we come special to the ques-
tion- "What part is Leon county tak-
ing in this great question of advanced
agriculture?" Let us examine the
tables for the year 1899, as shown in
the report before us, and see for our-
selves by one farmer's own statements
what she is doing. We will take each
product in its order and carefully ex-
The State reported 88,073 acres sown
in cotton, which produced 27,662 bales,
valued at $780,984. Of this amount,
Leon county reported 31,300 acres sown,
.,370 bales produced, valued at $251,-
100. One county alone, namely, Jeffer-
son, outdid her in productiveness by
less than 800 bales. This gave Leon
county an average of very nearly %
bales to the acre at a valuation of 30.
The State reported 480,672 acres sown,
4,654,774 bushels harvested, at a value
of $2,438,862. Of this Leon county
sowed 46,970 acres, produced 453,260
-bushels, valued at $226,600, or about
one-tenth of all produced in the State
and the yield was nearly ten bushels
to the acre, and valued at 50 cents a
bushel. No county produced more than
. TheState reported 480,672 acres sown.
. 379,418 bushels raised and valued at
j M223,2, of this Leon county sowed
4,13 acres; 37,440 bushels were raised,
valued at $22,464. This gave 12 bushels
-to the acre valued at 60 cents a bushel.
:;Only three counties raised more than
The State reported 24,642 acres sown,
2,268,788 bushels raised, and valued at
$855,649. Leon'county gave the great-
est yield but one county (Pasco),
through a greater acreage being 5,260
acres, yielding 251,300 bushels, valued
at $75,390. Pasco gave 1,286 acres,
yielding 290,950 bushels, valued at
only $40,975. Leon county grew better
potatoes and received a higher price
for them. Of course various conditions
affect both the yield and the prices of
this, as of other commodities. We in-
fer, however, that the carefully gath-
ered statistics from so many sources
give us an average that can be in a
great measure depended on. They are,
moreover, all the reliable data that we
have at present to found our conclu-
sions upon. In this case Leon received
more for a fewer number of bushels
grown on a larger area than Polk
county. The prices quoted, however,
may have been valued at different sea-
sons of the year.
In cane growing, again, Leon and
Gadsden counties sowed respectively
867 and 908 acres, out of a total of
9,209 acres in the State, or nearly one-
fifth the entire amount, yet Leon's 864'
acres gave more barrels of syrup
(6,160) worth more ($46,100) than
Gadsden's 908 acres, which gave only
5,341 barrels, worth only $43,100. Gads-
den reported no sugar made, Leon
quotes 5,800 pounds, worth $290. This
gi-es a value of nearly $7.50 a barrel
for syrup and 5 cents a pound for
Leon county not being a rice county,
reports only 21 acres grown, yielding
480 bushels valued at $480, or $1 per
bushel. In this commodity she evident
ly falls behind some of her more fa-
I FIELD PEAS.,
Here again Leon county's small
acreage of only 710, producing only
7,100 bushels, valued at $7,100, is far
behind the enormous yield in Bradford
county of 7,100 acres, and 6,557 in Put-
nam county, yet the former raised only
35,500 bushels, while the latter raised
47,468. In all these cases the price per
bushel was the same, but the number
of bushels raised to the acre still gives
Seon the prize, as she raised more
bushels to the acre than either Brad-
ford or Putnam.
In hay Leon county ranks third;
Pasco gave 5,661 acres sown and 6,525
tons raised; Putnam 3,186 acres sown
and 1,573 tons. raised. Leon gave 1,360
acres sown and 1,600 tons raised; yet
Putnam's hay was poor, worth only a
little over $6 per ton. Bradford's hay
brought $11 a ton, and Leon's hay $12
Leon county sowed 78 acres. Pasco
125, and Putnam 191. Yet Leon pro-
duced 242 tons. Pasco 251 and Put-
nam only 96, and comparing the val-
ues, Leon's millet was worth
$12.40 a ton and Pasco's $11.20, about.
Here again Leon's product is more val-
uable, for some reason or other, than
her more fortunate neighbors. It is
enough, however, to show that she
only needed to be encouraged to win

Here Leon county sowed 13,860 acres
out of the State's 183,186, or a little
over one-thirteenth the whole amount.
She raised 415,800, or one-third of all
raised in the State, for whoch she re-
ceived 50 cents a bushel, about.
" Leon's 51 acres sown look small be-
sides Gadsden's 1,216, which is the only
county which has excelled her. all in
all. Pasco's yield gave a value but
little above that of Putnam, whose
yield was less than half of hers, so
neither of these would count for prizes,
and as Leon's yield was nearly equal
to Putnam's, so according to statis-
tics Leon's condition would come next
to Gadsden's in quality and value.
In cassava growing, Leon did not
compete in 1899, as her reports give no
Here Leon's returns of 308 acres
sown, 10,890 bushels, show that her
raise was nearly as valuable as Cit-
rus', who cultivated 193 acres, yielding
10,990 bushels, valued at $12,190. Mar-
ion county received a small value for
a larger crop; this might infer an in-
ferior crop or a poorer quality.
Leon sowed 101 acres, raised 4,580
barrels, for which she received $9,100;
while Citrus sowed 240 acres, raised
12,295 barrels, worth $15,470. "lnus
Leon's crop was very much more valu-
able than that of Citrus-Citrus cab-
bages brought about $1.20 a barrel,
and Leon's $2.00 a barrel.
Proportionately in the value of the
crop, Leon can hold her own here, al-
though Lee must be considered the
banner county on tomatoes
Here again Leon gets a' bigger yield
and value on fewer acres than any
other county. Her 53 acres sown yie&,-
ed 5,130 barrels worth $7,180, while
Marion's greater acreage, 130, produces

somewhere, especially as the acreage
is very nearly the same in both cases.

Quality alone, we think, would not
make so great a difference. At any
rate, erro or no error. Leon county can
hald her own raising beans excepting
the winter variety (sown in the winter
and crated for early spring sales).
Leon county grew none of these
fruits such as oranges, lemons. limes,
grape fruit, pineapples, bananas, avo-
cado pears, guavas, etc., at least, none
are credited to her in the report.
Leon county raised 1,400 trees, which
lwre 980 bushels, valued at $2,040, or
about $2.00 a bushel. The total for the
State was 1,223 bushels.
Leon did. not evidently try to raise
many strawberries, her production be-
ing only four acres, bearing 15,000
quarts, valued at $1,500, or 10 cents a
quart, yet only 7 counties prgluced
more tnan she.
Leon county reports 9,000 trees, bear-
ing 3,000 barrels, valued at $3,000.
Clay county reports 20,000 trees (young
probably mostly), bearing only 500
barrels, valued at twice as much, or
$1,000; probably smaller or younger
trees bearing a choicer variety of
fruit. Putnam county reported a ratio
similar to that of Clay county. Pasco's
3,575 trees bore fruit valued at about
90 cents a barrel, and DeSoto's 223
trees bore 30 barrels, valued at $110,
or nearly $4 per barrel. With these
exceptions, for the e-edent quality of
the fruit raised, Leon holds her own
as to pear raising. No doubt better
fruit will be raised with a little more
The peaches grow, at least is report-
ed very unequally. Washington re-
ports 16,164 trees (probably mostly
young or unproductive) growing only
500 bushels, valued at about 75 cents a
bushel; Baer 15,709 trees, bearing 8,752
bushels (probably older or unproduct-
ive somewhat) worth 50 cents a bushels
A few counties evidently bear choice
fruit, which ranges from $1 to $2 a
bushel. Leon county's 5,500 trees, giv-
ing 2,000 bushels, worth $2,000, or $1 a
bushel, holds their own at a fair aver-
age crop and at a ratio of fifth any-
way perhaps fourth best in the State.
We now come to Leon's live stock
and miscellaneous products.
Leon county reported 1,560 horses,
worth $96,890, or about $65 a head. A
careful examination of the table fails
to reveal what per cent of the horses
raised in the several counties are fine
stock or high grade animals. Several
counties raise a greater number, and
several counties command high prices
for what the*r do raise. Leon's aver-
age price per horse makes her sixth
or seventh best, and is a fair average
of the general average.
Leon's 835 mulea. valued at $38,920,
gives a value of about $46 apiece for

Leon county's three asses, valued at

last statement, and we hope that it
does. The writer cannot withstand
the conviction, from thetables alone.
that he is correct in his estimate, and
that Leon produces better average
horses than average or high priced
Leon county produces good stock
cattle, but she evidently does not half
try. The writer will wisely refrain
from commenting on her present stat-
us or her possibilities, as the table
gives him no clue to her possibilities.
SHEEP AND GOATS.
These are also difficult to estimate
on. Leon county reports 450 head of
sheep, valued at $900, and 327 goats,
valued at $300. A study of the table
shows that she raises better sheep as
a sheep raiser than goats as a goat
raiser. I mean, that among sheep rate-
ers she would be called a fairer sheep
raiser than among goat raisers she
would be called goat raiser. In other
words, her sheep would take a prize
among sheep when her goats would
not take a prize among goats. These
tables are like all the other stock-
tables, misleading in many respects.
They imply that more attention has
been expended in horse and mnle rais-
ing than in cattle raising in Florida.
We come now to plainer sailing, a4d
can see our way to better results than
in cattle raising. Leon county's 29.-
100 hogs, valued at $51,520, would eas-
ily give her first prize as a hog raiser.
at $2.50 per hog average; for while sev-
eral other counties raise numbers 01ot
$2.50 hogs, none raise so many as Leon
Leon's 86.210 chickens, valued at
$17,460, is a walkover. Putnam's 79.-

Leon's 1,200 ducks, valued at $370,
and Walton's 1,827, at $606. stand in
much tWe same proportion. Florida's
million chickens are worth about 2o
cents apiece; her 6.839 ducks are worth
$2,868, or about 42 cents apiece. Flor-
ida's duck raising is still in its in-
Leon county is not a goose county.
Her 760 geese, worth $380, represent
50 cents apiece for the value of her
geese. Many counties raised a greater
number of 50-eent geese, a few raise
a smaller number of select $1.00 geese.
Leon county nas another walkover
on turkeys, with 6,900, worth $4,700,
or about 70 cents apiece. Many coun-
ties raise a small number of $1.00 girds
and Polk leads these with 1,061, while
Walton alone approaches Leon, with
4,901. but they are mostly 50-cqnt
Leon county furnishes 278,880 dozen,

a little more than 10 cents a dozen, aind

ATTENTION, POULTRY RAISERS.
Preventatives an( Remedies for Poul-
try Pox, Sore-Head and Warts.
In all warm countries there prevails
a poultry disease which attacks fowls,
turkeys, pigeons and geese, the young-
er animals being most susceptible. i his
disease is quite common in the Gulf
States, and is somewhat of a scourge,
in Florida. It is characterized by the,
appearance of wart-LhAe bodies, which.
form upon the head, eyelids, neck, beak
and nostrils, where they attain the
largest size. These warts or tumors
may, in mild cases, remain localized, or
they may spread to the comb, wattles,
feet and wings, the latter being par-
ticularly the case in pigeons. After
one or two weeks' development, the
warts burst and discharge a fluid whicn
is at first watery, out which later be-
comes viscid, yedlow and malodorous.
In mild cases where the disease re-
mains local, the warts dry up, form
crusts which fall off, and the case ends
in spontaneous recovery. This is the
exception, however; tne rule being
that the bird dies of exhaustion, es-
pecially in those cases where the dis-
ease invades the mouth and nostrils.
It being a contagious disease, the
introduction of a single case is suffi-
cient to infect ..-e whole premises. An
infected fowl roosting beside another
may cause the disease in the latter by
simple contact. Poultrymen state that
the disease results from the bites of in-
sects. This is likely true to a certain
extent; but we go a step further and
claim that fleas, mosquitoes, ticks, lice
or flies may be the agency through
which the disease germ is inoculated
into the fowls, as is the case of the dis-
semination of yellow fever, malaria,
Texas fever, anthrax and probably
other diseases of man and animals.
"Sore-head" or "warts" is caused by
a parasitic tungus belonging to the
group known under the name blas-
tomycetes. The most favorable con-
ditions for an outbreak of this disease
are over-crowded poultry houses in
which excrement is allowed to accu-
mulate, dampness caused by leaky
roofs, bad drainage and wet seasons;
it being most common irk poultry
hatched late. Hence, an important
phase in its prevention is cleanliness
and, perfection in the poultry house.
Excrement should be removed fre-
quently and the floor sprinkled wa.a
lime. Leaky rooLs should be repaired.
Frequent purification of the interior
by whitewashing is advisable. Old
nests should be removed and burned.
The shelves and feeding troughs also
should be regarded with suspicion and
drenched with scalding hot water. The
affected fowls should no longer stay
wit., the well ones, but should be con-
fined, fed well and treated medicin-
Treatment consists in the use o,
germicidal ointments or solutions ap-
plied directly to the warts. There is
a long list of such agents to choose
from, and any one of the following
should be effective: Carbolic salve;
glycerite of carbolic acid; sulphate of
copper in 2 per cent solution; spirits
of turpentine; tincture of iodine ap-
plied with a camel's hair brush, so as
not to get the iodine into the eyes or
nostrils. Creolin may also be used. In
employing this remedy, it is necessary
to slice off the end of the wart, ana
tofh it with a drop of the remedy
daily for several days. Mr. Jefferies
of the Horticultural Department,
claims to have used the petroleum pro-
du-t, axle grease, with good results in

OUR VOTING CONTEST.
The voting contest goes merrily on.
As promised last week, the first count
is given this week, but the result is- by
no means indicated by this contest
The contest has some time to run, and
it is possible for names not yet men-
'toned to come In and win. In fact,
such a thing is riobable.
Hereafter, we will count the votes
each week, on Wednesday night. If
you want wore votes the newsdealers
have papers for sale and will be glad
to supply (ur wants.
Remember this is not the final count.
The one for the most popular man in
Leon county will run until the State
Fair opens, and the one for the most
popular student until the State College
closes for the holiday recess. So you
%mve some time yet to work for your
candidates. Go at it-and go in to
'win. Nothing is easier, with proper
-work and persistency.
The vote now stands:

but to no avail, and finally the pater
families in despair Introduced some
frogs as a last resort. Now, frogs, as
is well known, look upon all worms
and bugs which enter frogdom as their
natural food and regard their kiiiing
as justifiable homicide in frog law.
The battle was short, and all frog-
ward. Messrs. Frog sat on their
haunches and between winks and
blinks shot out their tongues with
marvelous accuracy and rapidity and
then began to ruminate. The result
was that Mr. Cockroach and all his
minions were safely stowed
"where the woodbine twineth."
In the last issue of the Tallahasseean
Major Robert Gamble had an able ar-
ticle on the subject of State life as-
surance. Several years ago this sub-
ject was favorably mentioned by ex-
Governor W. D. Bloxham, who was
acting as Comptroller at the time. It
was subsequently given considerable
prominence in these columns, and was
favorably received in many sections of
the State. In fact, it seemed to be
in a fair way to become an issue at
the following session of the Legisla-
ture. When that body met, however,
it refused to take uold of it. The ar-
guments advanced by the Major in
his communication in our issue of the
4th inst are all practical and his
theory plausible. The subject is des-
tined, we believe, to receive better
treatment, or the law-makers than ic
has in the past.
Tampa has been receiving consider-
able unenviable notoriety out of the
recent eigarmakers' strike in that city.
The strikers were so unreasonable in
their demands that the whole country
was against them, and their cause
could not have been bolstered up for
- 'ery great length of time. But the
business men of Tampa, smarting un-
der injustice, took the law into their
own hands. Strike leaders were ab-
ducted and, it is claimed, left on a

KIND WORDS AND A STICK.
President Roosevelt's initial policy
of saying little and of quietly consult-
ing with .the leaders of his party as to
the most desirable developments of the
near future is doubtless something of
a surprise to those who-expected his
temperamental impetuosity to domi-
nate him from the outset of his occu-
pancy of the White House, says the St.
Yet it must be remembered that Mr.
Roosevelt is peculiarly a man of his
'word and that he has given his word
as to what he will do while filling
nmexpired term of the la"easident
McKinley.'-'He has deflnitelyjpledged
'himself to carry out the policies of his
predecessor. It would seem, there-
fore, that the new President must of
necessity devote his time to consul-!
tations with the late President's ad-
visers, learning precisely what is ex-
pected of him.
For the instruction of those who
may be disposed to believe that the
Roosevelt personality will be entirely
eliminated from Republican national
policiesdiuring the Roosevelt adminis-
tration it is well, however, to note the
-news announcement that President
Roosevelt guides himself largely by an
old Congo proverb which he cherishes
as containing a. deep wisdom. "Speak
softly and carry a big stick and you
-will go far," says this old African pro-
verb. President Roosevelt is speak-
ing softly just now. The big stick may
be brought into evidence later.
HOW TO PREVENT ANARCHY.
The question of how to effectually
suppress anarchy in this country has
be n receiving a good deal of attention
since the assassination of President-
McKinley. Of all the remedies sag-
gested, the following from the New
York World seems to us to be the
"(1) Punishing with death any at-
tempt upon the President's life,
whether such attempt fails or suc-
"(2) Providing for the banishment
,of every avowed or clearly proved An-
archist to some island in the Philip-
pines, just as France used to-exile her
desperate felons to Cayenne and Eng-
land'hers to Botany Bay.
"(3) Making'alt Aharchist societies
unlawful and providing for their de-
struction by suitable penalties for all
their offers and&members.

THE FLORIDA STATE NORMAL.
Wednesday evening, October 3, wit-
nessed the informal opening exercises
in the chapel of the young ladies' hall
of the Florida State Normal and In-
dustrial College. There were gathered
in response to an invitation extended
by President loung, Superintendent
Win. N. Sheats, and several of the pas-
tors of the churches in the city and
President N. B. Young In a few well
chosen words outlined the policy which ,
the school means to follow. The reg-
ular work in the literary courses will
be carried on as usual.
However, a student is not to receive
only a literary course, but in the in-
dustrial departments they will have
opportunity for the training of tne
haids, the young men in the depart-
ments of agriculture, architectural
drawing, painting, printing, black-
smithing, arpentty and tailoring; the
young ladies in sewing, millinery, cook-
ing and Jaundertng.
In all these departments most effi-

MURDER IN MADISON.
A fearful and terrible series of mur-
ders occurred in Madison, Madison
county, on Tuesday last, which excited
the town to the utmost. The perpetra-
tor being one Will Williams, a negro
belonging to a turpentine camp situ-
ated between Lee and Higden, about
8 miles from Madison. Williams was
jealous of a negro woman by the name
of Mary Bevins, whose husband was
Richard Bevins. Williams had wanted
to marry Mary, but she preferred Bev-
ins and married him, which had oc-
casioned Williams in a fit of jealousy
to threaten to kill her at the first op-
On Tuesday morning Mary went to
the woods to carry her husband his
breakfast. Williams saw her going,
and followed her with a double-bar-
rel shotgun. He came up with her
as she was giving the breakfast to her
husband and immediately fired at and
wounded her. Then he turned upon
Bevins and shot him, killing his in-
stantly. He then turned again and
shot Mary a second time, killing her.
Williams then took to the woods and
The people in the neighborhood.
hearing the shooting flocked around,
and quickly sent for Sheriff Arm-
strong, who with a man named Stock-
ton Smith, botn with their shotguns
and their dogs, came immediately to
the scene. They quickly found Wil-
liams in Higden, a turpentine still,
where he had taken refuge in a house
near-by. When the Sheriff and Smith
reached the house they separated, one
going each side of the house so as to
surround it. Armstrong then went to
the door and ordered Williams to open
it. Instead of doing so he first fired a
shot through the door, which tore the
clothing of Armstrong pretty badly,
and then opening the door he rushed
out and made for the woods. Both
Armstrong and Smith shot at the ne-
gro as he ran away, hitting him in the
soles of his feet as he ran. The negro
escaped them that nigiLt. Armstrong
stopped at the house mnat night, and at
early day on Wednesday he put Lte
dogs on the track and came up with
the negro about two miles and a aalL
When he saw that he was overtaken
Williams ran behind, two oak trees that
had grown together, and formed a
natural breaskworks, and waited to see
what would be done. Armstrong and
Smith came within about sixty yards
of the trees and then called Williams
to come out Instead of replying Wil-
liams opened fire upon them.
Smith was shot in the arm and Arm-
strong in the legs and body, the small.
snot simply stinging the flesh but tear-
ing the clothing baoly. Only one shot
hit Armstrong under the eye, which
caused the bloou to flow, so that he
was soon unable to see from either eye.
oy putting up one hand, however, and
holding the uninjured eye open, he was
able to shoot the negro, after which he
was surrounded and captured.
The negro fired eleven shots before
he was finally captured, but as: h4y
were only small bird shot they did lit-
tle damage, excepting the one which
hit the Sheriff beneath the eye, and
which had not been extracted Thurs-
day. The .charge of buckshot which

negro claimed that another shot struck
him in the head, but no signs of it
could be found.
Wiliams was taken to the butgy,
which was near by, and thence to the
jail, where a doctor soon arrived anu
examined the wounds. ne was aept
in the jail until dark, with a strong
guard, when he was slipped away by
the Sheriff, Mr. I. H. Denton and an
assistant, Mr. Henry -Raines, who car-
ried him to Greenville. Raines then
took the buggy back, while Denson
took the prisoner to the train and came
to Tallahassee, where he arrived early
yesterday morning. He delivered his
prisoner to Deputy Hopkins, who
lodged him in the Tallahassee jail. .
While in the woods Williams met a
white man by the name of Anderson,
who was out after squirrels and who
did not even know of the affair; the
negro, thinking that Anderson was
looking for him, shot him also, killing
aim instantly. Further on he met an-
other negro with a pistol, whom he
also supposed was hunting for him.
Williams shot him also.
Williams is a South Carolina negro.
While the prisoner was in the jail a
large crowd gathered and going to
Denton demanded the keys of the jail.
Denton said that he would not give
them the keys, but he would go to the
jail and, open' it and let them go

AN ESCAMBIA HAY FARM.
The following article is- going- the
rounds of the papers, and shows very
conclusively what energetic and enter-
'prising farmers can do it they try. It
will be a good lesson to. those farmers
who are all the time finding' fault with
their poor land, those who cannot do
anything because they have no capital
to work with, etc. Let them put thr
shoulder to the wheel, and in a few
years laugh at their less fortunate
Those who have never ridden over
the new tram-road that leads from the
railroad station, at Sopchoppy, to the
hotel at Panacea Springs, have missed
a new sensation. A ride over this
route combines the feelings caused by
a trip on a toboggan, a "shoot-the-
chutes," a merry-go-round and the
cross-town horse cars of the West Sid2
of New York.
The tram-car resembles one of the
floats frequently seen in industrial' pa-
rades, only it is not decorated. The
pair of mules amble along between the
rails at a gait befitting the dignity of
animals that have the honor of draw-
ing the only tram-car in this section
of the State--possibly even in the
The motion of the car at first is
pleasant, and the level country lead-
ing. from the station affords the mules
a chance to ;do their best. Then a
curve appears, and the car goes around
it in a manner that causes the pas-
sengers to cling to their seats. After
that first curve the passengers get ac-
customed to the motion, and the
speculation on their part-if it is their
first trip-as to what will come next
gives the trip to the hotel a flavor of
The road winds through pine for-
ests, odorous of turpentine, and with
the trees disfigured with traces of the
axe of the turpentine negro; through
dense swamps which have been made
passable by building long bridges; up
sandy hills and down again. The
mules labor slowly up the hills, and
the creaking tram-car follows with its
load of passengers.
Once the summit is reached and the
descent begun, the passengers could
easily imagine that a "shoot-the-
chutes" had been added to the atrac-
.tions. The heavy car moves forward
at a rate that causes the mules to hump
themselves to keep clear of it The
loquacious driver ceases telling his
passengers how many thousand feet of
lumber have been used in building the
road, and throws his weight on the
The swift speed almost takes one's
breath away and before one recovers
the car has reached the bottom and
*the mules settle into their normal gait.

Political Gossip A 0ot Iash.
ington and Elsewhere
PRESIDENT TO CONSULT
With Conservative Sojthern Demo-
crats as to Distribution of Offices.
Washington, Oct. 5.-Scarcely had
President McKinley been placed in his
tomb when the Republican office seek-
ers here began to play a game of
"grave yard insurance," based on Pres-
ident Roosevelt's spontaneous decla-
ration that he would carry aut all se-
lections made by his predecessor- for
appointments to Federal office. Fol-
lowing the example of the Ohio Repub-
licans, who declined to accept the Dem-
ocratic offer to pretermit their political
campaign out of respect to Mr. McKin-
ley, the politicians here all began to
take advantage of the dead. During
the last few days scarcely a Senator
or Representative who has gone to the
White House to ask for an appoint-
ment for a constituent has failed to
assert in the most positive manner
that President McKinley had prom-
qsed it to his man. No doubt many of
these men were honest in their asser-
tions, but that some of them, at least,
had been deceived by their constitu-
ents is evident from the fact that in
some cases as many as three and four
qDen have claimed that they received
positive promises for the same office.
The result of this state of affairs is,
of course, inevitable. President Roose-
velt has shut down. When it can be
proved that a promise has been made
and that it is reasonably recent, he
will carry it out; otherwise, no.
There is excellent reason to believe
that Mr. Roosevelt intends not only to
adhere to, but also to improve upon
the southern policy of his predecessor,
so2espite the storm of abuse that is sure
to alight on his head when the politi-
cians of his party discover that he was
in earnest and not merely talking
through his hat when he declared his
intentions on tne subject It is ru-
mored that he intends to consult with
conservative Southern Democrats, such
S,;.as Margan, McEnery, Clark Howell,etc.
and with their assistance to construct
a plan for the distribution of patron-
age in the South, so as to make a title
to Federal office down there a claim to
respect instead of the reverse, as it
now is. Mr. Roosevelt, it- is well
known, holds, as Mr. McKinley did,
that the average Southern Republican
has done nothing to entitle him to the
recognition of his party beyond ac-
cepting favors from it in the past.
Unlike all former Republican Presi-
dents, whose nominations were as-
sured uy the Southern delegates, Mr.
Roosevelt owes absolutely nothing to
any of these, and is therefore free to
strike out a radical course, and at-
tempt to build up a respectable white
Republican party in the South, un-
hampered by the complications that so
obstructed all his predecessors.Whether
the South will respond to this course

The readers of this paper will be
pleased to learn that there is at least
one dreaded disease that science has
been able to cure in all its stages, and
that is catarrh. Hall's Catarrh Cure
is the only positive cure known to the
medical fraternity. Catarrh being a
constitutional disease, requires a con-
stitutional treatment. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is taken internally, acting di-
rectly upon the blood and mucous sur-
faces of the-syftem, thereby destroy-
ing the foundation of the disease, and
giving the patient strength by build-
ing up the constitution and assisting
nature doing its work. The proprie-
tors have so much faith in .ts curative
powers, that they offer One Hundred
Dollars for any case that it fails to
cure. Send for list of testimonials.

Representative Babcock has seen the
handwriting on the wall and has prac-
tically decided to abandon his hope-
less task of persuading his party
friends to adopt revenue reform legis-
lation that will prevent the trusts, to
some small degree, from further milk-
ing the people. He now says that
while he still favors his bill as intro-
duced in the closing days of the last
session, and while the principle con-
tained" in it finds favor in his section
of the country and the northwest gen-
rally, still he may decide not to push
it at present This abandonment was
only what was to have been expected.
The Republican party is something of
a trust itself; it lives and has won of
late almost solely by the favor of tue
trusts; and it is obviously impossible
for it to turn upon us protector, pre-
server and paymaster. Mr. Babcock
has been warned off the course by the
American Protective Tariff Asociation,
which now claims that it is esesntial
that Americans should pay for their
goods more than they are worth, so as
to enable these to be sold to foreign-
ers at cost, and he has heeded the
warning. He hints that in case re-
ciprocity-which is a scheme to re-
duce the tariff solely at the expense of
the farmera--falM through, he will

into the conduct of other officers who
have confessed openly their grave der-
eliction from duty in not keeping him
informed of crucial intelligence.
A draft for a new subsidy bill pre-
pared at Boston is now being consid-
ered by Senators Hanna and Frye,
Representative Littlefield, President
Griscom, of the International Naviga-
tion Company (which will be the chief
beneficiary under the bill) and by a
few others. From private information
received here, the new bill does not
differ in any radical manner from the
old one. though certain omissions and
additions have been made in the hope
of winning western support for it. The
principal change is in regard to paying
subsidies to foreign built ships boug.--
by Americans, against which so strong
a fight was waged last session. So
far as can be learned the changes in
this clause are more apparent than
real, the same facts being wrapped up
and sugar-coated in different language.
The bill will be introduced as soon as
Congress meets and will have the ear-
nest support of the new shipbuilding
trust, and of the many Republicans,
despite the fact that our shipyards are
now overcrowded with work.
The ifiestand Hemp scandal inquiry
is so complicated that it is difficult to
disentangle the facts. It seems to be
evident, however, that a number of
high army officers arranged to corner
the hemp market and then have the
tariff altered in their favor. Dispatches
to and from Manila arranging for this
seem to have been regularly transmit-
ted at Government expense.
"One day last winter a lady came to
my drug store and asked for a brand
of cough medicine that I did not have
in stock" says Mr. C. R. Grandin, the
popular druggist of Ontario, N. Y.
"She was disappointed and wanted to
know what cough preparation I could
recommend. I said to her that 1
could freely recommend Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy and that she could
take a bottle of the remedy and after
giving it a fair trial if she did no. and
it worth the money to bring back the
bottle and I would refund the price
paid. In the course of a day or two
the lady came back in company with a
friend in need of cough medicine and
advised her to buy a bottle of Cham-
berlain's Cough Remedy. I consider
that a very good recommendation for
the remedy. It is for sale uy Wight &
Bro. and all medicine dealers.
MARRIAGE OF MISS HUME.
The marriage of Miss Jane (Jennie)
Hume, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
S. Hume, of Elvet Bridge, Durham,
and Mr. 'Walter Holdsworth, of Bur-
ley House, Wombwell, .Yorks., was sol-
emnized at St. Nicholas' Church, Dur-
ham, on Wednesday morning. The
service was choral, Mr. F. E. Leatham
presiding at the organ, and as the
bride entered the church played the
"Wedding March" from "Lohengrin."
The bride, who was given away by her
father, was attired In cream Irish pop-
lin, with court train, trimmed with
silk and embroidery, with a toque to
match. She carried a beautiful shower
bouquet, and was attended by two
bridesmaids, Miss J. Atkinson, of West
Hartlepool, a friend of the bride, and
Miss Holdsworth, of Wombwell, sister
of the bridegroom They wore dresses
of cream, rimmed with silk and em-
broidery and the former wore a brace-
let and the latter a diamond ring, the
gift of the bridegroom. The bride-
groom had for best man Mr. Albert
Curry, of Castle Eden Colliery, cousin
of the bride. The presents were nu-
merous and costly, that of the bride-
groom to the bride being a gold ex-
panding bracelet. The ceremony was
performed by the Rev. Canon Brace,
at the close of which the hymn, "Thine
-for Ever, God of Love," was sung. As
the happy pair left the church the
"Wedding March" was played by the
.organist. Aluncheon was afterwards
partaken of by the numerous friends at
the house of Mr. S. Hume. Mr. and
Mrs. Holdsworth left by the 2.05 train
for Keswick and the Lake District for
their honeymoon. They will take up
their residence in Doncaster.-Chroni-

it seemed as if he never could get

that the part of the Tallahassee and
South-Eastern Railroad near that place
was being pushed on rapidly. They

RODE INTO A DIRT PILE.
Tom and Joe Duncan and a Mr. Mul-
lins rode into a large pile of dirt
which was piled up in front of .the il
Provedo Cigar factory one night last
week. It had been neglected to put
lights about the pile, which extended
pretty far into the street, and the par-
ties in question did not know it was
there. One of the men was thrown
from his horse, and the other two rode
directly on to him. No serious dam-
age took place, beyond a few bruises
and sore limbs.

The evidence of the prosecution in
the Schley Court of Inquiry is nearly in
and next week sometime the defense
will have a chance to be heard. So
far, however, the proceedings have
been entirely satisfactory to Schley
and his friends. By the evidence of his
foes themselves, it has been proved to
the satisfaction of all unprejudiced
men that everything in his conduct
was entirely justifiable with the pos-
sible exception of his retrograde move-
ment towards Key West for coal. The
specification in regard to this is the
only one that still holds water-and
the defense is yet to be heard; all who
have followed the testimony concur
admitting this. Even if Schley should
be found guilty of an error of judg-
ment on this point-and it is clearly
impossible for tne court to adjudge
him guilty of more-the verdict woula
amount to a triumphant acquittal, as
there would still appear no justifica-
tion for the campaign of abuse and
vilification to which the Navy ring
for two years has subjected him. It
is a great pity that the length of time
that has elapsed since the war makes
it impossible to hold any investigation

There are people who say that the
benefit derived from the use of put-up
medicines is imaginary. It is not the
case with Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescrip-
tion, which makes weak women strong
and sick women well. A woman may
imagine she's weak, or may fancy she's
sick, but her imagination can't add forly
pounds to her weight. The positive
proof of the curative power of "Favorite
Prescription" is found in the restoration
of health which is recoiled in face and
form, of strength which can be tested.
and weight which can be registered in
pounds and ounces.
The general health of women is so
intimately connected with the local
health of the womanly organs that
when these" are diseased the whole bodv
suffers loss. Dr. Pierce's Farite Pre-
scription cures womanly diseases. It
establishes egularity, stops weakening
drains, heals infiainniation and ulcera-
tion and cures f--male weakness.

The develop nt of the Louisiana
Purchase Expos on along many lines
during the last ,w days has been quite
appreciable. definite statement of
the sizes of the rncipal exhibit builb-

be devoted to culture and allied in-
dustries. Five other buildings will
cover about 1 acres each, and four
others about 9 acres each. The total

ItETURNED FROM PHILIPPINES.
Dr. A. D. Villiams passed through
Pensacola this morning en route to
Jacksonville, hibis home, says Monday's.
Dr. Williais was attired in the-uni-
form of a r4ular army surgeon and
was in a tall tive mood when seen in
a passenger by a News reporter.
The train ped only ten minutes,
or long enou h for a transfer of mails,
baggage and passengers, and the gen-
tleman could not say much. He was
regaling hi Ielf on a cold chicken
sandwich, b between bites spoke as
"I am on y way home from Ma-
nila, where have been stationed for
t.e past with the medical depart-
ment of tbe regular army. My desti-
nation and ome is in Jacksonville,
and I am to visit that city for the first
time since e big fire. in which I lost
my home a effects. I think I may be
able to find y people."
When as ed about the conditions
in the Phili ines, Dr. Williams said:
"Judge T has about succeeded in
establishing civil government in the
city of an a and the Luzon, but for
myself 1 th k it is premature. It will
be effective n that vicinity, but when
it comes to forcing it among the ouit-
lying island it is a very n.derent mat-
ter. It is (fficult to get around with
Boles, Moh mmedans and Zulus.
"'The tro s are weel satisfied, and

Leon furnished 626 stands of bees,
which gave 9,100 pounds of honey,
worth $610. This makes honey worth
very little under 7 cents a pound, but
Escambia had 760 stands of bees, which
gave 7,600 pounds of honey, valued at
$760, which made their honey worth
10 cents a pound; Liberty county had
40,419 pounds, valued at $1,045, which
on the other hand reduced the price
to about 2% cents a pound; and Wash-
ington nad 1,000 pounds valued at $500
which made their honey worth 50 cents
a pound. Just what regulates the price
in each county is, therefore, hard to
tell. All these comomdities are some-
times in towns where there are few re-
sources and everything is accordingly
high. No regular market price,
but what one neighbor exacts
from another may also enter
into the cause of this difference.
The amount on hand very seldom af-
fects the price as does the quality of
the material The presumption is that
all these articles are "tame" produc-
tions. and every bee-keeper knows that
the food and the distance to food
makes good or poor honey and more or
less quantities of it
The broom corn industry is still in
its infancy, it can be made to yield a
good as well as a good paying harvest
all over Florida. It is one of the crops
that wili net a considerable income to
the grower. Leon county on 2 acres
raised 3 tons, worth $180, or $60 a
GRAPES AND WINES.
Leon county reported no grapes
raised, but did report 7,640 gallons of
wine, worth $8,500, or about $1.11 per
gallon, and prices range from 50 cents
to $1.50; according to the quality and
the caprice of the seller.
Figs were raised in Leon county
to the extent of 200 bushels, worth
$200; Polk had 24 bushels, worth $75;
and Wakulla 11 bushels, worth $63.
A careful cultivation of the fig, there-
fore. must produce good results.
Leon is the only county which re-
ported the moss industry. She claims
175 tons, worth $7,000 or $40 a ton.
In summing up we find that Leon
county had under cultivation 104,317
acres of land, or about one-tenth the
acreage of all the rest put together,
which was given as 1,068,897 acres.
The value of her crops were as fol-
lows: Field crops, $904,373, or about
one tenth of the total State valuation,
which was $8,173,547; vegetables and
garden products, $70,610, or about one-
eleventh of the total of the State,
which was $856,308; fruit crops, $9,140,
or about 1-147th of the total of the
State, $1,349,132; live stock, $220,420,
or about 1-30th of the total for the
State of $6,503,408; poultry, $52,770, or
a little more than 1-11th of the total
for the State of $705,828;dairy products
$161,864, or 1-5th of the total-products
of the state, $811,671; miscellaneous
products, $16,690, or a little more than
1-7th of the total products of the
State, $125,634. Giving the final total
of Leon county s productions a value
of $1,435,M7, while the total valuation
of the btate's production was $18,525,-
628. Leon county, then produced in
the ratio of the year's productions in
the while State as given in the re-
port for 1899-1900, just about 1-13th
of the total valuation of the State
Just think of it a moment The
productions of the whole State of
Florlda were only thirteen times as
great as that of one county, namely
Leon. No wonder she Is called the
banner county* This leads us In
another point. The population of
Leon county must be very large for
such a tremendous showing. Letus
see. In 1900 the population of Florida
was 528,542 (for fifty years at least
it has never decreased but con-
tinually increases), the population
of Leon county for the same year was
19,887, or 1-27th of that of the whole
State. There are six counties larger
than she in population, and, altogether,
twenty-one counties with a populaIO
of ten thousand or over. The Monthly
Bulletin issued by the Department of
Agriculture shows only the coMWdtiw.
of tie crops in each county for one
month, hence do not come Into col-
lision with this summary of a year's
progress. ._,.,_ _..,

AGRICULTURE IN LEON COUNTY.
(Continued irom second page.)
Leon county's 3,400 cows, valued at
$56,980, show her to be the prize cow
raising county in the State. The price
at which she values her cows would
average $16.75. This is a fair but
small average. Of course there are in-
dividual animals of a high value, but
dividing the total value by the total
number of animals gives the average.
Pasco's cows, valued at $9,255, gives
her a valuation of $36.43 per head.
Leon records the most milk sold and
used, or 416,820 gallons, valued at $65,-
580, an average of about 19 1-3 cents
per gallon. The milk of the Orange
county's cows appears to be worth
about 30 cents per gallon. In Taylor
county it appears to be worth over 50
cents a gallon, in Jackson county near-
ly 40 cents a gallon, in Baker the same.
In butter Leon county produces 162,-
980 pounds, worth $38,980, or an aver-
age of 24 cents a pound. In Levy coun-
ty, butter appears to be somewhat
higher, as in Lee also, and approaching
*;0 cents a pound. In Hillsborough 800
pounds, worth $490, would give an
average price of 61%4 cents a pound,
and in Alachua over 40 cents a pound.
Leon county produced but 360 fleeces
weighing 1,000 pounds, and valued at
2400, a small showing, but then she
had but 450 sheep, valued at $900, or
only about $2.00 each.

that should go to support the body atIl'
sustain life being absorbed and thrown

its natural course, is to cure. This is
accomplished by Gooch's Mexican

ONI SOLITARY WOMAN.
A woman has been arersted in I)ein-
ver on a charge of fraudulent voting.
The dispatches say it is the firs, case
on record. Women have been voting
in Colorado for eight years, in Kansas
for fourteen, in Idaho and Utah for
five, and in Wyoming for thirty-two.
If during this time only one woman
has been charged with fraudulent vot-
ing it is a preity good record.
A great many men in Denver are
charged with having voted fraudulent-
ly at the same election: 201 men are
under indictment for election frauds
in St. Louis alone; while at a recent.
election in Philadelphia the number
of fraudulent votes cast is said to have
mounted up into the thousands. There
is hardly a large city in which more or
less illegal voting does not go on. This
is not regarded by anyone as a proof
