TindbgOStory of a morphine,

ocaie and Whiskey Fiend


A. J. Dent Returns from Insane
Asylum at Chatiahoochee.

It has been frequently remarked that
truth is stranger than fiction and his-
Eory is full of instances tuat verify the
-assertion. Almost every uay we come
in contact with men and women, a re-
cital of whose romantic careers would
reveal adventures more thrilling than
the wildest dreams of the Arabian
The touching life story of A. J. Dent,
a painter who has just returned to
Tallahassee from the insane asylum at
C'hattahoochee, furnishes material for
a sermon as powerful as ever fell from
the lips of man. I is a story of agony,
remorse, heart-aches, trials and trou-
bles, that woulu require the facile pen
of a Dickens to properly portray. It
is the story of a man rescued from the
grasp of the three demons of destruc-
tions, morphine, cocaine and whiskey,
when he was on the downward grade
of the Black Valley railroad. It is a
story of love and devotion of a faith-
ful wife to a wayward husband.
A. J. Dent was born in South Caro-
lina, the son of Sheriff Dent, of Rich-
land county. The young man was rear-
*ed in the lap of luxury, and had every-
thing that the heart could desire. When
he reached manhood's estate, a bril-
liant future seemed spread out before
him. Graduating from the schools of
.his' county, he studied medicine, then
went to Philadelphia, where he took a
course in one of the pharmaceutical
His father died in the early eighties,
leaving his son a fortuue of nearly
$40,000. After receiving his inheritance
and finishing his education, young
Dent became imbued with a desire to
travel, and spent most of his time see-
ing the sights of the world. He was
never satisfied unless moving about.
,During his ramblings Dent finally
Arifted to Troy, Ala., where he fell in
love with his present wife. Not know-
ing anything about his past history
and character, her parents objected to
the match. They sent the young lady to
Madison county, Florida to visit her
Bisters. Dent followed, and succeeded
in. stealing his sweetheart away from
Her brothers-in-law.
The elopement was romantically
planned and daringly executed. The
-couple were married at Live Oak, af-
ter which they went to El Paso, Texas,
to live. Here Dent embarked in the
drug business, backed by Myers &
Potter, wholesalers, of St. Louis, Mo.
The married life of the young couple
-was as happy as ever mortals exper-
ienced with no premonitions of the
dark days to come. It was an earthly
" uradice too delightful to last. On
August 14, 1895, the first cloud appear-
ed. It came suddenly, and without
warning, and fell like a thunderbolt
from a clear sky. Dent had business in
a city several hundred miles away,
and that afternoon, after kissing his
-wife good-bye, boarded the east-bound
flyer which left El Paso about 5
The train was composed of six
sleeperss, and was due to pass Pecos
City at 8:10 p. m. But an open switch
-changed the current of Dent's life. The
train rushed down a side track just
before reaching Pecos City, smashing
-wlh terrific force into a freight train
'of forty cars which was waiting for
the Flyer to pass. Five sleepers were
telescoped, and the air was filled with
flying debris. The moaning and shriek-
ing of the wounded, the hissing of es-
caping steam, the crackling of the
flames, men and women rushing here
amnd there in the lurid light, presented
a scene of pandemonium impossible
to describe.
Dent was standing on the rear plat-
lorm of the car, Corintha, and was

caught between the sleepers. He was
mangled and burned almost beyond
recognition, but was finally rescued
more dead than alive, twenty-nine

dose up his rapidly diminishing busi-

gan traveling the country, peddling
From constant use, the effects of
morphine on his system became less
marked, and the amount taken grew
to alarming proportions. Dent was also
an invererate cigarette fiend, smoking
as many as 120 in a day. His desire
for stimulants almost consumed him,
and he finally became a victim of
strong drink, which relieved the con-
tracted pupil of the eye, and counter-
acted the sallow effect produced by
the morphine.
In his aimless wanderings Dent
reached Tallahassee last September.
Going to the hotel he engaged a room,
and the first thing after reaching its
secrecy was to inject a large quantity
of morphine into his system. This not
satisfying his terrible cravings, he re-
sorted to whiskey, and soon became in-
toxicated. In the still hours of night,
when everybody was peacefully slum-
bering, the demented man slipped out
and procured a large quantity of
muriate of cocaine, pulverized with an
equal amount of morphine. There was
enough of this compound to have kill-
ed fifty men unused to taking the
drugs, but Dent used it all in a few
His cravings seemed unquenchable.
He injected the hellish stuff, and it is
impossible to picture the effect pro-
duced. A mad, wild joy pervaded his
being. Earth and all its surroundings
were painted in the most roseate hues.
He became suddenly possessed of mil-
lions and lavished his wealth right
and left, although not owning a cent.
His longing for cocaine increased. Slip-
ping out of the hotel, he went on a
search for more of the "devil's de-
light." Finally procuring a dollar's
worth, he repaired to the room where
his wife and babes were sleeping, and
was soon more strongly under the in-
fluence of the deadly stuff.
Day dawned, but sleep had left him.
Wih pupils dilated, and almost dead to
all moral feelings, nearly speechless,
and with dumb, enchanted sensations,
Dent awakened wife and children. With
burning, tear-stained eyes he begged,
beseeched and implored for money.
The day wore away, and with aching
heart the devoted wife watched the
effects of the drug that had blasted the
career- of the only one to whom she
could look for bread.
The exhilarating effects of the drug
began to wear off and his condition was
pitiable to behold. He was in constant
dread that some secret enemy would
take his life. He would start at trifles,
imploring those present not to let any
one hurt him. At the least noise the
miserable wretch would cower down
and try to hide himself, all the time
laboring under the belief that the
enemy was lurking near, ready to take
his life.
Another twenty-four hours of torture
worse than death, with an occasional
glimpse of reason, Nature tried hard to
reassert herself, and in one of his ap-
parently sane moments the demented
creature rushed wildly to the Presby-
terian church, and asked for the pas-
tor. Failing to see the man of God, he
sent a note into the church asking him
to call at the hotel on a case of life
and death. Procuring more of the drug,
he dashed madly back to his room.
Just as the sun was hiding his face

behind the western hills, and tinting
the earth with a halo of glory, the door
opened and the minister approached.
With the small spark of manhood still
remaining, Dent told the story of his
misfortunes, and asked, in the name of
God and of his stricken wife and babes,
that something be done to save him
from the awful fire that was consuming
him body and soul.
After promising to return again and
assist him if possible the minister left.
The cowering wretch felt like recall-
ing his request, but something caused
him to remain silent. The following
morning a county officer the minister
and Dr. Ausley called. They found the
man in a terrible condition. The men
held a consultalon, and Dent asked to
be sent to the State Asylum for the
insane at Chattahoochee. This was
readily agreed to, the man remaining
quietly in his room while the necessary
papers were being made out, and until
the time came for him to go to the

the finest institution of the kind in the
country, and under the skillful care of
these able experts many phenomenal
cures have been effected. Dent entered
the sanitarium in September, a wreck
of his former self, weighing only 90
pounds. On November 4, two months
later, he was discharged cured.

success of the society, and showed his
interest by presenting it with a five

The members taking part in the trial
were: F. A. Hathaway, judge; W. B.
Crawford and Guyte McCord, attorneys
for the defense; Wm. M. McIntosh and
John T. G. Crawford, attorneys for the
prosecution; Roderick Holliday, clerk
of the court. Witnesses for the defense
were Julius Evans, Burton Belcher,
Roy E. Householder and Joseph Ferrell;
for the prosecution, Walter Willams,
Robert Wallace, David Cook and Clar-
ence Shine. The sheriff was Herman
Hilson. The jury was composed of
members and visitors.
Arthur Pearce was charged with the
murder of Wescott Edmondson. After
the testimony the witnesses were cross
questioned in a searching manner by
the attorneys. The young laywers dis-
played great ability in conducting the

opening speech for the defense, hand-
ling the subject in a very convincing
manner. He was followed by J. T. G.

splendid effort to convict.

replied, "Pork and beans."
"All right, lets go." Arriving at the
asylum and registering, Dr. Gwinn ex-
amined the patient, and ordered him to
be given a hot bath. As he was led off,
Dent yelled, "Say, this don't look like

oughly steamed and rubbed, the doctor
ordered a bread and milk diet When
he heard this Dent exclaimed "but
where does the pork and beans come
in?" The man was given a thorough
course at the institution, was deprived
of all stimulants and soon began to
improve. His recovery was remarkably
rapid, and speaks volumes for the skill
of Dr. Gwinn, and the excellence of the

Texas some 20,000 square miles in

We are told by those who are, to say
the least, in a position to know, that
our argument last week noes not apply
with the same force to cigar factories'
that it does to other manufacturing
enterprises. The reasons given for this
are that, in the cigarmaKer's business,
practically nothing but the highest
skilled labor can be successfully em-
ployed, and that it is not the small, but
the large factories that attract this
kind of labor to a community.
The experience of the El Provedo is
cited. They only have three cigar-
makers employed that did not learn the
trade in the factory hdre. If they could
be kept of course, that would be no dis-
advantage, but the tendency of this
labor is towards the big factories-that
is cities where more than one factory
\ If this be true then we submit that it
is time that our city took up the mat-
ter of bringing another big factory
here. Mr. Hirschberg says if that is
done, he will contribute a handsome
sum towards it.
The mere fact that the El Provedo is
selling thousands of goods more than
it can manufacture-having, as it does,
to let contracts to other factories-is
evidence that we need the factory. Evi-
dence that others can succeed here as
well as El Provedo.
In fact, it is pointed out by those who
ought to know that two factories could
go far better than one. That two would
attract thousands of skilled workmen
where one' cannot hope to keep them,
though they are paid fabulous sums in
We are not annoyed by strikes-we
are not the dumping ground for for-
eign agitators, and it strikes us that
these facts, coupled with the further
fact that we are in the very neart of
the best wrapper growing section in
this country, ought to induce factories
to come here if the proper effort be put

on. Receipt

on December 19th. Those who have not
witnessed this play, will have the op-
portunity of seeing one of the grandest
spectacular productions of their lives.
The awe-inspiring scene from the
heights of the Brocken the witches
carnival, and other effects, will be well
worth the price of admission. To those
who have never seen the play, nor
Iead the story, we will say that Faust
was a student seeking for knowledge
beyond his reach. He afterwards de-
serted his studies and entered into a
compact with Mephistopheles, one of
th-seven devils in the old demonology.
Mephistopheles was the second of the
fallen archangels, and after Satan, the
most powerful in the.infernal regions.
Faust, after entering into his com-
pact with the Prince of Darkness, gave
himself up to the enjoyment of his
senses. The principal female character
in the story is Marguerite, of whom
Faust tries to make a victim, but she
is saved by her own purity of char-
acter. Faust continues to enjoy him-
self until the hour of his doom arrives,
when Mephistopheles re-appears upon
the scene, and carries him off as a con-
demned soul. While in the infernal re-
gions suffering the tortures of the
damned, Faust gets a glimpse of
paradise ,where the central and most
beautiful vision is Marguerite.
This play will be produced at the

And a mocking bird is singing

If Booker T. Washington had to di-
gest all the editorials and pro and con
comments published since his dinner
with the Presdent, his gastronomic
capabilities would be as severely taxed,
as they were at the "pick-up" dinner,
which the writer once gave him unex-
pectedly in Illinois. The private White
House dinner, probably occupied less
ban ail hour. But what has directly
and indirectdy been written about it,
would nearly fill a freight train reach-
ing from here to Tuskeegee.
The recent colonel of the "Rough
Riders" of Cuban fame ,might scarce-
ly be expected to be too fastidious in
matters of social or court etiquet,
but we doubt if he for a moment sus-
pected the immense amount of good,
and the immense amount of harm, that
would result from his breaking bread
with a cultured gentleman whose skin
was slightly darker than his own.
Harm was done by unwittingly
arousing race prejudice, and the ugly
bug-bear of so-called "social equality;"
and good was done by capable dis-
cussions directing public attention,
North and South to the race problem
with a frankness and earnestness that
has not been witnessed in many years.
If the incident did nothing else than
call forth the splendid "symposium,"
or series of letters in the New York
Journal from some of the highest in-
tellectual and spiritual authorities in
the country, (on both sides' of Mason
and Dixon s line,) it would not have
been in vain.
The letters of Bishop Johnston, of
Texas, Bishop Gailor, of Tennessee,
and Bishop Dudley, of Kentucky, (men
whom we have personally known in
the work) are particularly strong in
pointing out the need of Christian In-
dustrial Education.
The fear of "social equality" result-
ing from Roosevelt's dining with
Booker, is about on a par with the
Chinese fear of the moon swallowing
the sun at every re-curring eclipse.
"The Caucasian race, for generations
to come, will govern this country,"
writes Dr. J. L M. Curry, Director of
the Peabody and Slater Fund, at the
close of his letter;-and everybody
knows it, or ought to know it by this
Booker T .Washington has three
times spoken from the same platform
as the President of the United States,
with the President as an interesting
auditor, and at the Peace Jubilee in the
great auditorium of Chicago he re-
ceived an ovation from six thousand
people, second only to that accorded
the President himself. Although he par-
took of the same banquet as President
McKinley, and subsequently had Mc-
Kinley as his own guest at Tuskeegee,
no such uproar was made by the press,
as followed Booker's recent lunch at
the White House.

Meeting Booker some months ago
In front of the Grand Central station
in New York City, he introduced us
to his companion, Mr. Frissel, of the
Hampton Institute, Virginia. Booker
was dressed in what appeared to be
gray homespun cloth, possibly of
Tuskeegee manufacture. But although
Booker, in his boyhood, only had fifty
cents in his pocket when he first arri-
ved at Hampton, and slept under board
walks on his way there, (as he told
us, in our dining room in Illinois,) he
certainly has had a pretty good time
ever since. His success in raising money
has been phenomenal. This he does
largely (he told us) by personal visits
and appeals. His public addresses are
largely attended and even his "parlor
talks" are remunerative.
At Lake Mohonk Mountain House,
two months ago (in the Catskill,) Mr.
Smiley, the proprietor, told us that
Booker had recently been there and
given a "talk," after which Smiley's
hat was placed on the table and six-
teen hundred dollars were dropped into
it in contributions and checks, for
Tuskeegee. Frisell also made an ap-
peal, later, and'got thirteen hundred
dollars for Hampton. The annual In-
dian Conference was held there after-
wards. We heard Bishop Gray, of South
Florida, make an appeal (in Saratoga.)
for his Indian work in the Everglades,
and he was de ghted in gettiUnj 75.
But Booker stems to get the most.
And he gets It all for "Tuskeegee." No

osophical vgaries, which invariably,
led to a swelled head, and an emptyI
stomach. Booker invited us to "come!
and see Taireegee,"-the Alpha and'
Omega of his efforts,-which keeps him'
a good part of the year dining with an.l
soliciting governors, philanthropists',
and President; and at the same time/
he promised to run down* and see
Ehiopian Florida "sometime."
The amount of money lavished on
"higher education" by wealthy men of
the Rockafeller, Vanderbilt and Came-:
gie type, is extraordinary, compared
with the pittances given elsewhere tp
meet the common necessities of life.
When a man's physical life is starved-
out of him, there is little room for any
intellectual or spiritual life. When the
colored man meets disaster, sickness,
or crop failure, there is no one now to
stand between him and utter despair.
Many of the old plantation darkies
even point back to the days of slavery
as much better than their present con-
dition. And we partly believe it.
The North freed these people and
dropped them. Uncle Sam "emancit
pated" them and then left them to their
fate. As Dr. Curry fearlessly puts it:
"The National government rushes
eagerly to the education of her new
wards in Porto Rico, the Philippine,
Alaska etc., but cruelly turns a dei
ear and unfeeling heart, and a close
pocket, to the pathetic cry of the il.
literate millions she suddenly emanci:
The same may be said of wealthy
philanthropists. In a personal intei-
view with our friend John Wanamaker,
this summer, in Philadelphia, we tried
to interest him in this subject. With al-
most Chesterfield an suavity and polite-
ness he replied, "If we do this, it will
only take the money away from some,
thing else."
In calling on his partner, Mr. Robt. Q.
Ogden, who is head of the New York
Wanamaker store, and whom we have
personally known many years, hi
listened, and said, "We have got to thi
end of the rope."
What rope, he did not say, but siny
then, another big Ogden banquet hw
been held, and it was there announced
that some wealthy individual had given
($80,000.) Eighty thousand dollars to-
wards this "race problem."
We suppose it will be spent on
"higher education," or sky-scraping
Ethiopian ethics, on the same old prih-
ciples of polishing the spire while the
foundation is crumbling to decay. The
Japanese people began their efforts for
modern civilization at the top of the
ladder years ago, but found they ha; to reverse the process to succeed. Tue
history of higher classical and scienti-
fic education among the Hindoos for
the past forty years, has proved, that
intellectual education does not solve
the problem of physical living, arid
that multitudes are educated out of the
industrial avocation of their fath e,
only to be landed in a region whe 'e
there are not enough political or pr>-
fessional positions to support them. n
many instances "education" rend'sf
them more sensitive to he grim suYf-
ferings of want, without affording theru
a chance to keep soul and body to-
gether. People who have never b6.n
hungry, cannot realize this. Indeed,
these wealthy philanthropists; are
about on a par with the Spanish Prin-
cess, who, on being told the common
people were starving for "bread," re-
plied in surprise, "Why don't they eat
cakes and pies?"
It is this "cake and pie" era, we are
now going through, with the Rocks-
fellers and Carnegies of "higher educa-
tion." A touch of it has even reached
Leon county. For the colored people of
the whole Lake Jackson region at least
have just emptied their corn-cribs, 0r
mortgaged their last ox or bit of furri-
ture, to pay,-("a la Carnegie,")-fjr
several hundred large fancy-bougd
family Bibles,-for which, (in the
spring ) some enterprising Georgian
took their "notes."
But chattel mortgage "notes" comis
due,-even on Bibles.
(A drink of spiritual whiskey ,is
given we are told, as a reward iSr
promptly paying the "note." This doulit-
less takes the place of the philanthrogi-
cal "banquet" ,
The result is, that the Bainbrid e
road region of Leon county, now p -
sesses more copies of five doll r
Bibles, and of three dollar "guide,"
than there are bushels in many of t e

The Christmas holidays are ap-
proaching, and the merchants of Tal-
lahassee are arranging for an immense
business. The country is in a prosper-
ous condition. Everybody is making
money, and consequently is happy.
It is customary during the Christmas
holidays to make presents to relatives
and friends. Where can I buy these
presents, is a question that is going
to be asked hundreds of times a day,
by big, little, old and young. The Tal-
lahasseean is here to answer that ques-
tion. Beginning next week, we are go-
ing to make a specialty of advertising
Christmas goods.
Every week we will print a large
number of extras for distribution over
the city, county and state. It is safe to
say that every issue of the Tallahas-
seean will be. read by 10,000 people.
This will make it the best advertising
medium in Middle Florida, and by far
the best in Tallahassee. It will reach
the reading .public, and is bound to
bring results to advertisers.
The merchants of Tallahassee will
find that the best way to reach the
people is by advertising in The Tal-
lahasseean. Our first large edition will
appear next week. If you have not al-
ready secured a space now is the time.
Remember we are going to print a
large number of extra copies and you
will get the benefit. This will be much
better than .getting out hand bills, be-
cause the paper will be read by the
When the city editor calls on you be

go to press without your advertise-,

Too much can not be said to Im-
press on the minds of the people the
value of good roads, and money spent
for permanent improvements is money
well spent The agitation has been
started all over the land in favor of
good roads, but the education of the
masses is a serious undertaking. Too
many people are prone to hang back
on account of the first cost, not realiz-
ing that good roads will pay for them-
selves in a few years.
Many counties have issued bonds for
road construction, and Where the work

been cleared within the past 12 or 15
years. The destructive character of
these Insects Is well known ana young
trees set out in the Infested territory
will be seriously injured ir not totally
destroyed by them. It would be best
to withhold the planting of your or-
chards until next fall after the brood
of Insects has passed.

It seems that the South has never
given that attention to growing grasses
for haying purposes which has been
and Is now the custom among farmers
In the North and West, writes J. Ca-
bot. There are, no doubt, reasons that
uight be put forward why the planters
In the Southern states have not devot-
ed more time and attention to the pro-
duction of hay, but space and time to-
day forbid the statement of facts rel-
ative to the matter. With these intro-
ductory remarks, I would now state
that the time is propitious and a be-
ginning should be made on every well
directed farm in the South for the pur-
pose of growing hay producing grasses.
There is no longer any doubt, well
attested experiments having proven it,
that alfalfa will grow luxuriantly in
our soft climate and warm soils. When
planted in a rich and properly prepared
seed bed, alfalfa will yield per acre
from five to six tons of excellent hay
during the season. A well established
tact with regard to alfalfa is that
when cut and not thoroughly cured
while yet in tLe field, rain falling on
the partly cured or freshly mown grass
will not injure it to the extent that it
does clover and timothy, and in fact
really injures it very slightly, which
should cause alfalfa to be all the more
highly prized in the Souht.
German millet is another grass that
will yield a heavy tonnage of hay to
the acre. Millet should be sown toward
the last of March, or earlier, near the
coast. Select a piece of land that has
been fall plowed, rebreak it, to freshen
it, harrow down level, to form as per-
fect a seed bed as possible. If the land
is thin, give it a top dressing of rotten
stable manure, then sow the seed
broadcast and harrow them in, not too
deep. In the short time of two or three
weeks the surprise wiil come when be-
holding the fine stnad of green and
growing millet which wil mature
early and should be cut when the grain
is in the milk, cured and stacked in
the barnyard.
The same piece of land may then be
turned up with the plow, rows thrown
up five feet apart and at once planted
to Mexican June Corn, which will grow
and mature a heavy yield of grain be-
fore frost has come and injured it,
thus making not one, but two profita-
ble crops on the same piece of ground
during the season.
There should be more attention paid
to building up pasture lands in the
South than is at present the custom,
unless the Southern people prefer to
go West for their butter and cheese
rather than to produce the same at
home, on the farm.
To the question, how to make a pas-
wre? I will call attention to the fact
that one acre, or one hundred acres
oet to Bermuda grass will, as soon as
it forms a sod, afford the best all-
around pasture for grazing purposes
that can be grown in the South. Suet
pastures should be made permanent
The heavier the sod the more luxuri-

"At present you will find farmers'
sons in all branches of industry. Many
of them will say: "Sorry is the day
I left the old farm" In former days the
boy of the farm had a hard life; tolled
early and late, with but few hours free
from labor, wherein he could culti-
vate a taste for knowledge. And when
once interested his chances were so
meager he could scarcely satisfy the de-
sire to learn more about his chosen

"The people of the whole country
show their interest in him by liberal

this, our nation highly honors his call-
ing. The agriculturist is to be found con-

They are in the majority in our legisla-
tive bodies, and, of a truth, upon them
we depend for laws to protect our in-
stitutions and such laws are felt
through the entire system of our
government. The farmer is an import-
ant factor in our national life. All en-
couragement should be given to the son
to follow in his father's footsteps. Then

Goch's Mexican Syrup has accom-
plished a cure in this neighborhood
which has astonished the people. Miss
Davis was given up to die by her at-
tending physician. She had lung fever.
The doctor said she would die before
morning, and advised her to discon-
tinue his medicine, as it was doing her
no good. Her parents had a bottle of
Goch's Mexican Syrup and Goch's
Quick Relief in the house. They at
once began to give the syrup in doses
one hour apart, and frequently bathed
her chest with the Quick Relief. Before
morning she was better, and after us-
ing a few bottles of each, she is almost
as well as ever. It was almost like rais-
ing the dead, and has established the
reputation of Goch's Mexican Syrup
here as a cough remedy; we can sell

Ten years ago, business required me
to pass a day in Cedarville..It was late I
in the afternoon when the stage set a
me down at the "Sickle and Sheaf," a
new tavern, just opened by a new
-landlord, in a new house, built with
the special end of providing "accom- 1
modations for man and beast" As I t
stepped from the dusty old vehicle g
in which I had been jolted along a
rough road for some thirty miles, feel- ]
ing tired and hungry the good-natured 1
face of Simon Slade, the landlord,
beaming as it did with a hearty wel-
come, was really a pleasant sight to ,
see, anu the grasp of his hand was like t
that of a true friend. i
I felt as I entered the new and neatly
furnished sitting-room adjoining the i
bar, that I had indeed found a corn- ]
fortable resting-place after my weari- I
some journey. 1
"All as nice as a new pin," said I 3
approvingly, as I glanced around the i
room up to the ceiling-white as the -
driven snow-and over the handsomely i
carpeted floor. "Haven't seen any- I
thing so inviting as this How lqng I
have you been open?" i I
"Only a few months," answered the
gratified landlord. "But we se not yet
in good going order. It taki time, you a
ktw, to bring everything into the right I
shape. Have you dined yet?"
"No. Everything looked so dirty at
the stage-house where we stop-
ped to get dinner that I couldn't ven-
ture upon the experiment of eating.
How long before your supper will be
"In an hour," replied the landlord. -
"That will do. Let me have a nice
piece of tender steak and the loss of
dinner will soon be forgotten."
"You shall have that, cooked fit for

As he spoke,. a neatly-dressed girl,
about sixteen years of age, with rather
an attractive counteance, passed
through the room.
"My daughter," said the landlord,
as she vanished through the door.
There was a sparkle of pride in the
father's eyes, and a certain tender-
Mess in the tones of his voice, as he
atid--"My daughter," that told me she
was very dear to him.
"You are a happy man to have so
fair a child," said I, speaking more in
Compliment than with a careful choice
Of words."
"I am a happy man," was the land--
lrd's smiling answer; his fair, round
bace, unwrinkled by a line of care or
trouble, beaming with self-satisfaction.

Uld always expect to be. Simon Slade

well-dressed young man-or rather
boy, for he did not appear to be over
nineteen years of age-with a fine, in-
telligent face, that was already slight-
y marred by sensual indulgence. He
raised the glass to his lips, with a
quick, almost eager motion, and drain-
ed it at a single draught.
"Just right," said he, tossing a six-
pence to the young bar-tender. "You
are first-rate at a brandy-toddy. Never
drank a better in my life."
The lad's smiling face told that he
was gratified by the compliment. To me
the sight was painful. for I saw that

"Who is that young man in the bar?"
I asked, a few minutes afterward, on
being rejoined by the landlord.
Simon Slade stepped to the door
and looked into the bar for a moment.
Two or three men were here by this
time; but he was at no loss in answer-
ing my question. .
"Oh, that's a son of Judge Ham-
mond, who lives In the large brick
house just as you enter the village.

iliarly calls him, is about the finest

Socialists Solved the Problem But
Colony Was a Failure.
The disintegration of the Socialist
Colony at Ruskin, in Ware county,
Georgia, has only tended to strength-
en the assertion that such schemes can
nmt live in any country. The recent
discussion as to what is the lowest
possible daily cost of food for an adult
man in the United States, brings to
mind what was actually done by the
Socialists at Ruiskin.
The statement has been made that
it is possible for man to live on an
expenditure of only 15 cents a day.
Many people dispute this, but it is an
actual fact that the Ruskinites lived
for much less than this. The writer
has been among them, mingled with
them and has conversed with their
leaders, and knows this to be true.
Before entering into the details of
how they did it, I will state that the
Ruskinites were Socialists pure and
simple. In September 1899, the colony
left Ruskin, Tenn,, and settled in Ware
county, Ga. There were upwards of
300 souls in the party. They believed
firmly in the doctrine that society
should be reorganized by regulating
property, industry and the sources of
livelihood. They also believed in a
community of property and the nega-
tion of individual rights in that prop-
They gave much time and study to
economic questions, and successfully
solved the problem how to live at the
lowest cost. When forced to leave their
Tennessee home the colonists were
hard-pushed. But they possessed stout
hearts and willing hands and managed
to prosper until dissentions and dis-
agreements arose in their ranks. They
lived, and lived well, at an actual cost
per capital of less than ten cents a
Everything consumed was bought at
wholesome, in large quantities, and
was cooked in the community kitchen.
In the community dining hall were
tables to econmmodpte 300people. Those
who did not wish to eat with the
crowd were given the privilege of pur-
chasing company stores and cooking it

Tallahassee proper is only one mile
square. The city really covers more
than twice this territory and has a
population -of about 6,000. It is an
ideally located city, and could easily
be made one of the prettiest in the en-
tire South. The people are beginning to
wake up, too.

The bazar and festival given by the
ladies of St. Agnes' Guild at the armo-
ry Tuesday afternoon and hight was a
very pleasant affair and liberally pat-

dinner and a good supper. The display
of fancy work, much of which was dis-
posed of was beautiful in the extreme
and caused many exclamations of de-
light from the spectators.

The contract for the repair and im-

Mr. R. A. Whitfield has been county

Many Northern people are seeking

An interesting case was tried in
Judge Whitfleld's court Monday after-

for services as surveyor. The Jury
brought in a verdict in favor of plain

like the case would become very sensa-

rowly averted. The judge finally re-
