FOR COTTON FACTORY
Councilman Ball Wants, Citizen
Meeting Called at Once
HE ALSO FAVORS SEWERAGE
And Thinks Tallahassee should be
Bouded for This Purpse.
"How to boom Tallahassem is a sub-
ject that should be uppermost in the
milds of eveiy citizen of the.city" said
Councilman Julius Ball, to The Talla-
hassean. Monday afternoon, Mr. Ball
is one of the Capital City's; most en-
terprising citizens, and his 0(iggestions
are worthy of consideration
"It is all well enough eio people to
talk." continued Mr. Ball. 'i)ut unless
their talk is followed by .something
more substantial, little will come of it.
In my opinion the establishment of
a cotton factory in Tallahassee will do
more towards attracting capital -and
other enterprises than anything else.
"It will also bring laboP here and
put large sums of money in circulation,
to be spent among our merchants and
business men. This is a cotton growing
section The land produces as prolifi-
cally as any in the South, 4nd I can't
see the economy of shipping the staple
to other points, to be mqiufactured
into'cloth and then sol? to ur people
at exhorbitant prices
"We can manufacture it eight here,
and keep the profits at hon where it
ought to be. The right w- to do is
for the moneyed men of Ta ahassee to
organize a stock company fpr the pur-
pose of erecting and operating a cot-
ton factory. It can be done 'and when
it is done the town will spring into
commercial prominence with a bound.
I will take stock in such antenterprise,
and feel that it would be awpaying in-
vestment. It would open up .ore lands
in Leon county to cultivation. It will
give a large number of hanis .employ-
ment, and will greatly ehbance the
value of every farm in the county.
"I would suggest that a meeting be
called as soon as possible t formulate
plans, not only for erectix a cotton
factory, but for the purpose of raising
funds to build up the town nd Induce
manufacturing enterprise to locate
here. When this meeting s c lied, every
business and citizen who h the wel-
fare of the Capital City at h rt, should
attend. Not only should thqy give the
movement encouragement by attend-
ance, but they should lend a more sub-
stantial encouragement. They should
subscribe for stock.
"By working in harmony we can
make Tallahassee an importlat manu-
facturing center. Now is the time to
'work. This city is on a decided upward
movement. It has a healthy growth,
and is improving in a most gratifying
manner. I hope a meeting will be call-
ed within the next few days that will
eventually result in the establishment
of a number of manufacturing enter-
"Another thing is badlyi needed by
Tallahassee. No city can .be healthy
S without proper sanitation, a1d I am in
favor of bonding the place tr the pur-
pose of putting in a first-class sewer-
age system. The work can be done for
about $35,000.. For this sum a system
can be put in that will meet all de-
mands for the next thirty years. The
health of the community demands that
sewerage be put in.
"There is always a likelihood- that
some epidemic will visit thbe'eity where
cleanliness does not prevail, Filth is
the breeding ground for the propaga-
tion of all disease germs, and no one
will deny that we have a prolific
nursery for the birthplace of epidemics.
By taking the proper precautions the
danger may be lessened greatly, and
the only safe precaution is by putting
in a sewerage system.
"Every wide-awake citizen of Tal-
lahassee should be in favor of bond-
ing the city for this purpose, and I
think, if put to a vote of the'people the
scheme could be carried through."
Following is the present standing of
the Student's Contest The falling off
this week in voting is not 4o be taken
as a lack of interest. In 'fact more
interest has been manifested this week
than at any time, but the ballots have

1. Mechanics and material men's liens
provided for by Sections 1723 to 1749,
Revised Statutes, do not apply to the
separate statutory property oi married
2. Section 2, Article XII, Constitu-
tion of 1885, providing that a married
woman's separate real or personal
property may be charged in equity and
sold, or the uses, rents and profits
hereof sequestrated for the purchase
money thereof or for labor and ma-
terial used with her knowledge or as-
sent in the construction of buildings oi
repairs or improvements upon her
property does not create a lien upon the
property to secure the demands named.
It merely authorizes courts of equity
to charge the property with the pay-
mept -of such demands and until pro-
ceedings for that purpose are begun
there is nothing in this section of the
constitution or in any statute in force
which denies to the married woman
the right to sell her property in the
'manner pointed out by other statutca
permitting her to do so. If the sale Is
made in good faith, with no intention
of defrauding, hindering or delaying
persons holding such demands, the
property in the hands of the purchaser
will not be liable to be charged with
'the payment of such demands.
3. Where a bill in equity alleges
that the title to real property is in a
wife by deed executed to her, but does
not allege that the property was pur-

his benefit or that the deed declared
a trust for his benefit, an allegation
that the deed was made to the wife as
a matter of convenience to the hus-
banu and that he is the real ana re-
puted owner of the property described
therein, states a mere conclusion, and
is insufficient to show that the wife
holds he property as a trustee for the

TRIBUTE OF RESPECT.
The committee appointed to recom-
mend suitable action concerning the
decease of our esteemed brother Jacob
R. Cohen, begs leave to offer the fol-
lowing preamble and resolutions:
Whereas it has seemed good in the
sight of the Supreme Grani Master of
the Universe to call from the scene of
his earthly labor our worthy brother,
Jacob R. Cohen, be it resolved by
Jackson Lodge No. 1, F. & A. M.
First, That in the passing of Broth-
er Cohen this lodge has lost a zealous
and efficient co-laborer, faithful in the
discharge of every Masonic duty and
devoted to the principles of our order.
Second, That the community has lost
an enterprising, public-spirited citi-
zen, whose successful -business career
of twenty-three years gave him the
sincere regard of a wide circle of
friends and the respect of all. His per-
sonal dignity, his open-handed gen-
erosity and his integrity of character
are worthy of all praises.
Third, That a page in our minutes be
dedicated to his memory, and the lodge
draped in mourning for thirty days.
Fourth, That a copy of these resolu-
tions be offered the city papers for
publication, and that our secretary be
requested to send a copy marked with
the seal of this lodge, to the widow of
our departed brother, with assurances
of heartfelt. sympathy in her sorrow,
and of our constant Interest in aer

*The Hay-Pauncefote Treaty Has at"
SLast Been Signed.
Washington, Nov. 21.-Sugar will
play a tremendous part in the delibera-
tions of Congress at the coming ses-
sion. The problem is really a very com-
plicated one. First, there are our own
growers to-Te considered; urged on by
the 'Agricultural Department, farmers
in many sections have devoted their
attention to raising sugar beets and
to building factories to extract the
saccharine matter from them; any at-
tempt to reduce the duty on sugar will
undoubtedly meet with vigorous op-
position from these. Next is the sugar
trust, which is willing to have raw
sugar free but wants a tax on the re-
fined product so as to enable it to make
an abnormal profit; it is now engaged
in a war with the beet sugar men to
make them sell their refined sugar at a
price fixed by itself. Third, are the in.
terests of the Hawaiians. Fourth, is
Cuba, to which free entry of her sugaj
into the United States is a vital con4
edition to prosperity. There are really
so many wheels within wheels in thq
sugar conflict that a keen oberver will
possibly be nonplussed for awhile to
get facts, and there is grave danger of
.a scandal similar to that of some year"
ago when several Senators were con-
victed morally of guilt in speculating
In sugar stocks and were strongly sus,
pected of yet more reprehensible prac
Representative Babcock, of Wisconm
sin, is in town, pluckily uplrolding th,
tariff measure he stole from the Demo.
rats last session, and has since bee3
attempting to force on his own part
with no appreciable results. "My ide&$
as to tariff revisions is simple," he saiq.
"It is this: Where by changed condfr
tions tariff duties have become exorbi -
ant, far beyond the needs of protection,
I would put them where they woull
amply protect labor, but not to a poi
that would create a monopoly of trad
and raise prices to consumers. 'In other
words, if an article cost $1 to be prq-
4duced abroad and $1.40 to be produced
in this country, I would favor a 50 per
cent duty, to protect ourselves; but
not 200 per cent which would simply
afford a margin for increasing the price
to our own consumers. There is no de-
parture from Republician protective
tariff principles in that. I reassert that
I am as ardent an advocate of the Re-
publican doctrine of protection to
American industries as there is in thia
-country.' The question this Congress
will be called upon to answer is, Will
it permit a tariff duty to remain in
force, to enable a trust to pay dividend%
on watered stock?" This is the question
that the Democrats have been asking,
for lo! these many years, only to be
overborne by the money that the pro-
tected trusts have been able to muster
to their defense. Mr. Babcock means
well and it-he and his half dozen sup-
porters would join hands with the
Democrats they might force action. No
one doubts, however, that when It
comes to a show-down they will yield
to their caucas rule and vote to main-
tain the tariff unchanged.
The accession of Senator Cullom to
the head of the Foreign Relations Corn-
mittee of the Senate brings Steve Elb-
ins, of West Virginia, to the head ct
Interstate Commerce and renders abor-
tive all efforts te strengthen the inte-
state commerce law or to repair thl
holes punched in it by the unfriendly-
court decisions. What is needed, is a-i
amendment to the laws which will give
the commission power to say, after a i
investigation, that a rate is too highi
and, to fix a lower rate, which the rai -

history as the work of Secretary Hay,
although, as a matter of fact it is the
work of the Senate, and largely of the
Democratic members of that body, who
will not even get a "look-in" at the
fame of the work. The stealing of the
glory of the battle of Santiago by the
Sampsonites is nothing compared to
the looting of the credit for the canal
treaty by Mr. hkay. The treaty as drawn
today is substantially as dictated by
the Senate at the last session and is
diametrically opposed to the ideas of
Secretary Hay, who first proposed an
altogether different instrument; who
gave interviews to the Washington
correspondents of London papers point-
ing out how foolish and wrong the
Senate was o amend his treaty; andJ
who, it is more than suspected, di-
rectly connived at the rejection of that
convention by Great Britian, in order
that it might still nave a chance to
nail the credit by ultimately putting
forward the work of other men as his
The Schley court is hurrying its
work, now holding two sessions daily
instead of one. The Court declines to
discuss them matter but excellent pro-
gress is being made in the arrange-
ment of the testimony. The Admin-
istration would prefer that the court's
report should be handed to Secretary
Long and disposed of before Congress
meets. It is doubtful, however, if this
will be possible. Friends of Rear-Ad-
miral Schley, it is said, may ask a Con-
gressional investigation of the Santiago
campaign without dragging that offi-
cer in as a central figure. It is pro-
posed, according to report, to ask Con-
gress to authorize an inquiry into the
conduct of Rear-Admiral William T.
Sampson. Rear-Admiral Sampson's
friends say that his record will speak
for itself, and they will not oppose a
Congressional inquiry. It is worthy of
note that Admira! Schley has three
strong unofficial attorneys represent-
ing him in the persons of the three
wives of the members of the Court all
of whom are understood to be fully
committed to his cause.

FLORIDA STATE BONDS.
State Treasurer J. B. Whitfield has 8
received letters recently from Mr. Joe- i
eph M. Ltghtintuer, of New York, ask-
ing about .certain Florida State bonds
issued several years ago. The. following
letter, sent in answer to these queries,
Mr. Joseph M. Lightenauer, Dear
Sir:-In your letters of recent date
rou state that you are the owner of
$2,000. of Florida State bonds which
are in default, with 57 semi-annial in-
terest coupons attached thereto and
that they were issued under an Act of
the Legislature approved January 28th,
1870, and signed by Harrisop Reed,
governor, and countersigned: by the
Treasurer, to mature January ist, 1900,
and ask "is there any chance for a
settlement of this debt?"
The Constitution of Florida of 1868,
Article XII, section 7, provides that
"the Legislature shall have the power
"to provide for issuing State bonds
'bearing interest for securing the debt
"of the State, for the erection of State
"buildings, and for the support of State
"institutions; but the credit of the
"State shall not be pledged or loaned
"to, any Individual, company, corpora-
"tion or association; nor shall the State
"become a joint owner or stockholder
"in any company, association jor cor-
The Legislature by an Act approved
January 28th, 1870 authorized the is-
sue of State bonds in aid of a railroad
The Supreme Court of Florida in the
case of Holland vs. the State of Flor-
ida, 15 Florida Reports, page 455, de-
cided at the January term 1876, that
tnese bonds were null and void, hold-
ing the Act of the Legislature under
which they were issued to be in conflict
with said section 7 of Article XII of
the Constitution of 1868.
In this opinion the court says: "The
"Legislature must be held to some
"limitation in the matter, and looking
"to the executive, legislative and
"Judicial history of the State, it is too
"clear for doubt that a line' of road
"from Quincy to Mobile cannot be held
"to be a public work within the mean-
"ing of the Constitution, as it has
"been heretofore defined by the justices
"of this court. Such a road is beyond
"and outsideof the general soope and
"design of the original enterprise, and
"the Constitution does not authorize
"the Legislature to aid any other rail-
"way than those embraced in the then
"existing system. It may be said that
"the road to Mobile will be of much
"greater benefit to the people, and
"other suggestions of like character
"may be made. With questions of pol-
"icy of this character this court has
"nothing to do and they should not
"and do not weigh one grain in reach-
"ing a conclusion.
"The bonds of the State of Florida
"here authorized to be issued are,
"therefore, unconstitutional. The power
"of the Legislature is limited in this
"respect, and the bond here sanctioned
"is not embraced within the limitation.
"One of the consequences of this is
"that neither the State nor her people
"are bound for the bonds ndw in the
"hands of those who hold them. No
"doctrine of estoppel can; operate
"against the State."
This shows that the bonds you men-
tioned are not a debt of the State of

Treasurer of Florida.

There is comfort in the knowledge so

wish in curing rheumatism, pain in the
back, kidneys, liver, bladder and every part

necessity of being compelled to go often

during the night. The mild and the extra-

realized. It stands the highest for its won-
derful cures of the most. distressing cases.

OUR COTTON WILL Bi NEEDED.
The decline in cotton prices the last
three weeks, amounting to about one
cent per pound, is naturally a disap-
pointment to growers, yet there is no
note of real. discouragement says the
Farm and Home. The downturn is due
largely to bearish speculators in for-
eign markets, who exaggerate the sit-
uation and claim more for our south-
ern crop volume than can be realized.
The movement from first hands is
liberal, as is to be expected, at this
time of year. Yet conservative opin-
ion points to an ultimate yield of less
than 11,000,000 bales rather than more.
What is of still greater Importance,
There is industrial depression in Ger-
many, but this means increased activi-
ties at spinning centers in England
and the United States. The consump-
tive demand for cotton goods should
prove at least a normal in the old
world, and better than that here at
home where there is general prosperity
among all classes. The southern cot-
ton spinners' association, min annual
convention at Atlanta this week, is
wisely taking up in earnest the ques-
tion of increasing our foreign outlet
for American-maqe goods.

CALL A CITIZENS MEETING.
In an interview in this issue of The
Tallahasseean, Councilman Julius Ball
gives his views on the best way to
boom Tallahassee. Mr. Ball is a
shrewd, far-seeing business man, and
his suggestion that a citizens' meet-
ing be called at once for the purpose of
taking steps towards organizing a stock
company to erect a cotton factory and
secure other manufacturing enterprises,
should be acted on.
We are all desirous of seeing Talla-
hassee grow. The capital has every ad-
vantage and facility for becoming a
great manufacturing center. All that is
needed is a little vim-something to
arouse the people from their lethargy.
A few manufacturing enterprises would
infuse new life into the place, and
goodness knows we want new life.
We-leed vim, push. enterprise. We
want to work together harmoniously,
and persistently, always keeping in
mind the xup-building of Tallahassee.
The suggestion that a meeting be call-
ed is a good one. That's the way to
start the ball to rolling. Once started it
will continue to roll and everybody
will be benefitted. The Board of Trade
or the Young Men's Business League
should, take the initiative and call the
meeting. Call it at once. The sooner the
better. There are scores of men in
Tallahassee who can and will sub-
scribe. It ought not to be a very diffi-
cult matter to organize a stock com-
pany here with a capital of $100,000
or $150,000. Let's get together, put our
shoulders to the wheel, and see if we
can't do something to help the town.
EMPLOYER AND EMPLOYEE.
The mere drawing of his salary is
not the only consideration of the man
who succeeds. Of course this is an im-
portant part of the labor, but there
are other things to be taken into con-
sideration. For instance, the man
whose sole ambition is to draw and
spend his salary, is not the man who is
sought after by employers. The man
who watches the clock oo closely, who
is never ready to go to work -until it
strikes, and is the first to drop every-
thing at knocking off time, is not popu-
lar among those who employ labor
It is the man who is not afraid of
work, the atan who is always on hand
ready for duty, and is not in too great
a hurry to leave off, who is sought af-
ter. In other words, the man who does
his duty faithfully and conscientiously
is never at a loss for something to do.
He works for the interest of his em-
ployer knowing that their interests are-

THE TWO RESULTS.
The ways of politics are past finding
out In New York City a wave of
righteous indignation stirred the peo-
ple from center to circumference.
Tammany was in control. Corruption
was rampart, Croker, from his home
in England, dictated the policy of the
city government, and superintended
the distribution of the spoils. His tools
and henchmen were appointed to posi-
tions of trust. The treasury was looted,
the people were robbed, property was
taxed to death.
The people groaned under the bur-
den as long as possible. Then they rose
in their might. Decent Democrats, hon-
est Republicans, fearless men of all
parties, united their forces in one su-
preme effort to throw off the toils of
the terrible Tiger. Committees were ap-
pointed, the best men in the state were
nominated to fill the offices, all parties
in opposition to the ring in- control en-
dorsed the nominations, and the peo-
ple did the rest. Right and justice pre-
vailed. The decent ticket was elected by
an overwhelming majority, and New
York will be purged.
How different in Philadelphia. The
City of Brotherly love was controlled
by Republicans. Its administration was
just as rotten as New York. A reform
movement was started. But the politi-
clans gained control. That city needed
purging, but some of the men at the
head of the reform party were just as
corrupt .as those in power. The best
element did not flock to the support of
the "reformers." They realized that it
would be "swapping the devil for a
witch," and were not enthusiastic in
their efforts to overthrow the ring.
Many people did not vote, and as a re-
suit, the party in power was "endorsed"
But the movement has been started.
The decent element will soon be
brought to realize their condition more
forcibly, and will take the reins of gov-
ernment in hand. Then Philadelphia
will be purged just as New York was.

Governor Jennings, said, in part:
"Mr. President Ladies and Gentle-
men: It affords me great pleasure to be

ment. Here is displayed the energy and

tablished in France a4d Italy for the
convenience and safetyiof traffic. About
the year 800 A. D., Ajfred the Great
introduced them into England, ani
they gradually spread all through
Europe, in many insances the ex-
changes at these fai* amounted to
five millions of dolls. Fairs were
held in ancient Mexicp before money
was coined. The traffic was carried on
by means of Darter an$ a regular cur-
rency consisting of transparent quills
of gold dust, bits of tin cut in the form
of a T, and bags of vecaz containing
a specific number of grins. Fairs have
not been connned to a ly one country.
As civilization progre s, men have

devote our time, labor and thought to

follow up the study of* books with the
constant study of ouf tellowman, to

An Opera Singer's Experience.
Miss Jennie Hawley, a contralto
singer of great popularity in comic
opera, is one of the many professional
singers who use Peruna. She writes:
RIGGS HOUSE, WASHINGTON, D. C.
"I regard Peruna as invaluable to
singers and actresses, and all persons
who use their voices in entertaining the
public. I have found it excellent for a
cold or cough."-Jcnni& Hawley.
Ex-Congressman C. Pelham, of Ban-
croft, Va., writes:
"My sister-in-law has been suffering
from catarrh of the throat fora consider-
able time. She has been using Peruna
for about one week, and is manifestly
improved. I believe it is an excellent
remedy for catarrh."-C. Pelham.
Not only is Peruna of untold value in
cases of laryngitis, but a bottle of Peru-
na rightly used in the family during the
winter months is of value untold. Peru-
na cures colds, eures coughs, cures la
grippe, cures all diseases due to catarrhal
congestion of the mucous membranes.

piles I consulted a physician, who ad-
vised me to try a box of DeWitt's
Witch Hazel Salve," says G. F. Carter,
Atlanta, Ga. "I procured a box and was
entirely cured. DeWjtt's Witch Itazel
Salve is a splendid cure for piles, giv-
ing relief instantly, and I heartily com-
mend it to all sufferers." Surgery is
unnecessary to cure piles. DeWitt'B

A PHYSICIAN TESTIFES.
"I have taken 'Kodol Dyspepsia Cure
and have never used anything in my
life that did me the good that did,"
says County Physician Geo. W.Scroggs,
of Hall county, Ga. "Being a physician
I have prescribed it and found it to
give the best results." If the food you
eat remains undigested in your stom-
ach it decays there and poisons the
system. Lou can prevent this by dieting
but that means starvation. Kodol Dys-
pepsia Cure digests what you eat. You
need suffer from neither dyspepsia nor
starvation. The worst cases quickly
cured. Never falls.
'MAKING THE FARM PAY.
Money saved is money earned. This
is an old saying, and it applies with
peculiar force to the farmer. They all
want to increase their income that
they may enjoy life better. Not only is
this true in regard to the farmer, but
It is the same with the generality of
mankind. Now, we are only talking to
farmers, and shall confine our remarks
up to $1,050, tne ignest ever paid.
- Commenting on the above, the Santa
Fe New Mexican, of recent date s ys:
"C. P. Bailey & Sons, who sold the
goat are among the most prominent
goat breeders in the world. C. P. Bailey
was one of the pioneers of the business
in America. His son, Dr. Willard C.
Bailey, who is attending the show land
sale, has become a recognized author-
ity on the industry. Last spring he visit
ed Asia Minor and in spite of the strict
guard enforced by the sultan to prevent
the exportation of Angoras, at the risk
of imprisonment and even the loss of
his life, smuggled out, in a cargo of
hay, a number of valuable goats with
which to infuse new blood into his
herd. He paid an average of $1,000 per
head for them.
"Pasha-Calumbia, however, was not
one of these. It is to the credit of Amer-
ican Angoras breeders that he was
dropped and raised on the Bailey ranch
in California. He was sired by Pasha,
one of the oldest imported bucks on the
Bailey ranch. His dam was adjudged
as the best nannie goat exhibited at
the World's 'Fair in Chicago.
"The goat breeders all pronounce
Pasha-Columbia one of the best goats
they have ever seen. The Bailey goats
have won eight' first prizes and two
house room and food.
Another, and probably the most im
portant point in favor of fall buN)ing,
is the fact that if bought now you will
be sure to have them on hand when the
time for spring mating comes, and w-
not be looking around for a male bir'd
when he should have been a month or
more with his hens. Speaking on this
line the Farmers' Voice says:
Another reason in favor of pur-
chasing in the fall is, many farmers
sell off their poultry crop then and will
the more readily use some of the pro-
ceeds to purchase breeding st< ek than
they will put their hand in their pocket
in the spring and take. money received
from sources other than poultry.
Sell off, trade off, kill off l91d male
birds that have been used two years or
more and introduce young ones into
your flocks. If you are raising thor-
oughbred poultry get birds of the same
breed. If you have only common stock
or grades get he best cockerel possible
of a breed that will bring the flask
nearer the breed of fowls you prefer
F. W. Rhueltrt & Sons, near Las
Vegas, N. M., last January purchased
3.0 head of Angora goats. This fall
they sold 800 pounds of wool at 40
cents per pound, after shearing 330 of
the herd and estimate that at least
3,000 pounds of wool was lost in shed-
ding. Some of the wool was fourteen
inches in length and a of it was of
delicate Angora silk fiber. The herd
has increased to 500 head. They lately
sold eleven bucKs for $460. They have
more than cleared up the price of the
nerd in less than a year.
The goats keep healthy and are
easily reared. They pasture out all win-
ter at practically no expense, and it
will certainly pay any farmer to stock
ais farm with the animals.

C. B. George, Winchester, va., writes:
"Our little girl was attacked with croup
late one night and was so hoarse she
could hardly speak. We gave her a fei
doses ot One Minute Cough Cure. It
relieved her immediately and she went
to sleep. When she awoke the next
morning she had no signs of hoarse-
ness or croup."
INFUSE NEW BLOOD.
The Tallahasseean believes that the
farmer should procure the best of every-
thing, the best seed, the best tools, the
best stock, the best poultry. Speaking
of poultry, now is the best time to
purchase cockerells, with which to
breed up graded or common stock, or
to infuse new blood into thoroughbred
flocks. Many breeders sell good fowls
for less money in the fall than in the
spring. This is on account of the fact
that by selling in the fall they save
and continue along that line till you
have a flock that for practical pur-
poses--egg-production or meat-produc-
tion-will crowd the thoroughbred
Blood tells just as much in poultry
as in live stock and no farmer can af-
ford to raise mongrel fowls in this
time of close competition in the pro-
duction of paying crops. The man who
produces the most meat or the gri.It-
est number of eggs for the least out-
.lay for grain and other expenses is the
man who will find poultry pays.

French apparatus, the glossmeter, is
designed to aid the apiarist who, by
judicious selection, seeks to develop a
long-tongued race. The apparatus is
simply a glass vessel for syrup, with
a lid having numerous perforations,
and a floating scale to show the height
of the liquid when the bees just reach
it through the holes. It is estimated
that the ordinary bee can draw sweets
from a depth of a quarter of an inch,
and that selection can increase the
range twenty-fifth of an inch.

escape thus offered from a treatment
repugnant to modesty. Any sick woman

To Decisions Handed Down at The
January T4rm, 190L
John Clemmons, Plaintiff in Error,
vs The State of Florida, Defendant in
Carter, J.: i
1 Erasures and interlineations in the
same ink and handwriting as the body
of an indictment, that are not only not
contrary to the probable meaning of
.he indictment as it stood prior to
.heir insertion but which make that
meaning clear, will in the absence of
proof to the contrary be presumed to
aave been made before the indictment
was presented to the grand jury.
2. A demurrer to a plea in abate-
ment and the ruling of the court
thereon are matters of record to be
exhibited to an appellate court by the
record proper, and not by bill of ex-
3. The law does not require the
county commissioners of any county to
make a list of the persons sworn and
empanelled as grahid jurors at any
term of the Circuit Courts.
4. The dying declarations of a de-
ceased relating to what was said by
him or the accused and what happened
between them at ti~e time of the fatal
encounter are properly admissible, in
prosecutions for unlawful homicide.
5. Any expressions of one mortally
wounded at the tinie of making an al-
leged dying declaration, tending to
show that he then' believed his death
was imminent, arei admissible for the
purpose of determining whether the
.declaration then made was in fact a
6. Evidence of acts, remarks or con-
dtict of one accused of the crime of
murder showing unfriendliness on his
part toward the deceased is admissible,
though such acts, remarks or conduct
occurred two or three weeks prior to
the homicide, where other testimony in
the case tends to show acts of intervals
for more than a year prior to the hom-
7. The omission of the court to in-
struct the jury upon any point of law
in a case is not available to one who
has not requested an instruction on
that point and taken an exception to
the ruling of the court refusing his in-
8. A motion for a new trial upon the
ground of the ill ess of a juror is
properly refused where it is not shown
that the juror was when the verdict
was rendered or before, so ill that he
could not give careful and conscien-
tious consideration to the merits of the
controversy then pending before him,
or that the verdict rendered by him
did not express his deliberate convic-
tion of defendant's guilt upon a full
and careful consideration and compar-
ison of the evidence.
9. Improper argument of counsel
for the State in the hearing of the jury,
if checked by the court as soon as it is
brought to its attention and not
further persisted in, is not sufficient to
require the court to grant a new trial.
10. Where the evidence in terms
does not make out a case of murder in
the third degree, but is sufficient to
sustain a higher degree of murder, the
verdict for murder in the third degree
must be sustained as against a motion
for a new trial upon the ground that
the evidence is insufficient to support

1. Circuit Courts have power in
their discretion t, permit to be filed
and appended to pleas in equity the
affidavit and certificate required by
Equity Rule No. 48 at any time before
a decree PRO coWESSO for want of a
plea is entered, here the omission to
do so was- cause by inadvertence or
oversight on the; part of the pleader,
and the application is promptly or sea-
2. The Internal Improvement Fund
designated in section 1 and vested in
the Trustees by section 2 of the In-
ternal Improvement Act (Chap. 610
laws approved January 6,1855) is in no
they were not required to hold the
bonds so purchased as an investment
on account of the sinking fund upon
which interest was to continue for the
benefit of that fund! and upon the can-
cellation of such bonds so purchased,
interest would cease to run thereon,
unless the interest coupon had been
previously detached and negotiated.
4. Under section 3 of the Internal
Improvement Act (Chap. 610, laws, ap-
proved January 6, 1855,) the trustees
were invested with a discretion either
to purchase and cancel bonds issued by
a railroad company with the purchase
money derived from the sale of such
road by them under authority confer-
red by that section or to incorporate it
with the sinking fund provided by that
act, and if they exercised the discre-
tion to purchase and cancel bonds,
they were not required to purchase all
bonds then outstanding, but only as
many as they; deemed advisable.
5. Ordinarily where a plea in equity
is set down for argument, its truth is
admitted only for the purpose of test-
ing its legal suulciency. The judg-
ment to be entered upon the allowance'
of such a plea upon argument is not
definitive, for its truth may be denied
by the plaintiff by replication, and the
parties may then proceed to examine
witnesses, the one to prove, the other
to disprove the facts stated in the plea,
and no order of the court merely pass-
ing upon the legal sufficiency of the
plea should preclude the plaintiff the,
rignt thus to controvert the truth of
the facts alleged. 1
