After the usual devotional services,
the conference proceeded to organize.
F. C. Shellman was elected secretary,
with Rev. G. W. Coar and A. Jeffries
as aRsistapts Rev. H .A. Bryan was
elected statistical secretary.
Since organization the conference has
been moving along without a hitch.
The reports rendered thus far show a
decided improvement over last year,
and all things point to the most suc-

Rev. F. R. Smith, of the A. M. E.
Zion Church, and Rev. J. B. Hankerson,
of the Baptist Church, both of this
city, were pleasant visitors Thursday.
Rev. Hankerson entertained the meet-

Bishop L. H. Holsey, D. D., the pul-
pit orator, lecturer and race leader,
will, according to announcement, ad-
dress the people of Tallahassee on the
race problem at 7 o'clock this evening.
All who wish to hear this noted leader
discuss this very important subject
should avail themselves of the present
occasion. The admission will be only
10 cents.
As this is the year in which dele-
gates to the General Conference are
elected, an interesting time is expected
before the conference closes.
There are only two weeks more of the
contest for the most popular student at
the Florida State College. From now
on the contest promises to be very in-
teresting, many people, holding back
their ballots for the home stretch.
The final count will be made and an-

The Eaglals AA UnamUltary.
Partly from historical and partly per
haps from racial causes the English
are essentially unmilitary. They resent
the control of soldiers. They distrust
military ideals. No government, that
ever existed in this country vas more
unpopular than that of Oliver Cromwell
and his major generals. Its unpopu-
larity left an indelible mark on English
institutions. For many years it made
it impossible to have a standing army.
Even when the course of events made
it necessary to concede that much to
the military necessities of the time it
still remained a maxim for centuries
with all politicians that as little power
as possible must be granted to the sol-
diers; that their business was to fight
our wars. and. this being done. that
there was little or no place for them in
the body politic.
[ We do not think it necessary to de-
fend this attitude of mind. Like most
popular feelings, it is largely unjust,
but also, like many popular feelings, it
is based to some extent on a true con-
ception. Politically, using the word in
Its largest sense, the domination of the
military idea in a state is calamitous.
It tends, we believe, to destroy individ-
uality and is a serious menace to indi-
vidual liberty. --English Monthly Re-

The Third Handla,
The best account of the origin of the
loving cup comes from the, late Lord
Lyons, British embassador at Paris.
Henry IV of France while hunting be-
came separated from his companions
and, feeling thirsty, called at a wayside
inn for a cup of wine. The serving
maid on handing it to him as he sat on
horseback neglected to present the han-
ule. Some wine was spilled, and his
majesty's white gauntlets were soiled.
While riding home he bethought him
that a two handled cup would prevent
a recurrence of this, so his majesty
had a two handled cup made at the
royal potteries and sent It to the inn.
On his next visit he called again for
wine, when, to his astonishment, the
maid, having received instructions
from her mistress to be very careful of
the king's cup. presented it to him by
holding it herself by each of its han-
dles. At once the happy idea struck
the king of a cup with three handles,
which was promptly acted uipon, as his
majesty quaintly said. "Surely, out of
three handles I shall be able to get
one!" Hence the loving cup.
Spirits Above and Below.
"Many years ago." writes a New
Hampshire clergyman in the Boston
Journal, "it was the custom to store
liquors in church cellars in Boston;
not all of them. but many of -them.
As late as 1850, and probably later, the
cellar of the stone church on Bowdoin
square was used by the Trull distillery
near by (Pitts street. if I am right)-for
the- ripening in hogsheads of New Eng-
land rum. Some one found a hymn-
book in a pew and copied in there the
following verse:
"There are spirits above and spirits below,
The spirits of love and the spirits of woe.
The spirits above are the spirits of love;
The spirits be-low are the spirits of woe.
The spirit above is the spirit divine;
The spirits below are the spirits of wine.
"I have myself frequently watched
the men putting hogsheads of rum Into
the cellars or taking them out."
Four Perfeet Women.
The prophet Mohammed is reported
to have said that "among men there
had been many perfect, but not more
than four of the other sex have attain-
ed perfection to wit, Asiah, Mary,
Khadijah and Fatima." Asiah was the
wife of the pharaob of the Exodus.
She forsook the faith of her fathers, on
account of which her husband subject-
ed her to many cruelties. The Virgin
Mary was the second perfect woman,
Mohammed stating that "she had been
exalted above all the women of the
world." Khadijab was the first wife
of the prophet, "a princess among wo-
men." Fatima, according to Moham-
med, was. the fourth perfect woman,
she being his beloved daughter.
The BIli Would Grow.
"I've brought you a little brother,"
said the doctor.
"No. e!aid the impossible child; "the
stork brought n.: little brother."
"WelL I'm the sork "" said the doctor.
"But where is your bWl.?" said the im-
possible child.
It is claimed by those who should
know that an impossible child is prob-
ably never wittier than upon the occa-
sion of somebody being born into the
family--Detroit Journal.

The proper proportion of these three fertilizing ingredients in any
aoil assures good crops, says Prof. James S. Doty, in Massachuise
Plowman. Nature does not always place them in the right places for
all plants, but occasionally we find some nook where the fertilizing
ingredients are properly distributed. Some plants need more of potash
than others, and again others need and demand an excess of nitrogen.
It has taken years to analyze the plants so that we can tell about the
needs of each class, and it will be many more years before their needs
will be so popularly known that every cultivator of the soil will mix his
fertilizing ingredients just right for the various economic plants. In a
general way, however, the needs of the plants can be understood so that
one can intelligently apply our scientific knowledge about potash,
phosphoric acid and nitrogen.
Potash forms the starchy part of the plants, and contributes toward
the growth of the woody part of the stems and fleshy portions of the
fruit. Plants that have woody stems and plenty of atarch, either in the
fruit or leaves require plenty of potash in the soil for them to do their
best. Those that are naturally deficient in these particulars get along
without so much potash. There is no other substance that can quite take
the place of potash for performing these functions.
Phosphoric acid enters less into the vital constituents of the plants
than either of the other ingredients. It might be said to supply the
salts and minerals to the plants-the iron to the system. It is tonic
in its action, and when applied it stimulates plants to quicker maturity.
It does this as most good tonics do to the human system, by helping
the plants to assimilate the food proper. Phosphoric acid applied to
the soil enables the plants to take up plant food that might otherwise
remain unassimilable for considerable time.
Nitrogen has been said to form the prime constituent of all plant
growth, and without it nothing could grow. It gives color to the
foliage, vitality to the stalk and stem, and food to the whole plant. It
enters actively into the very life of all plants, and very few fail to
respond to its quickening and beneficent action. It is the nitrogen in
the barnyard manure that makes the plants respond so quickly to it. It
is found in the air, soil and decaying plants. It is best applied to the
soil in the shape of green manure, such as clover, cow peas or beans, but
it can be added to it in an artificial way by applying nitrate of s'Ad; .nd
Euplhate of ammonia.
It may seem absurd to talk of manuring soils naturally rich, yet the
evidence of our official statistics tends to prove these naturally rich
soils have a very low productive power. The low average yields per acre
of wheat and corn on our rich prairie soils is often quoted aa a kind of
natural reproach. There seems to be no doubt of the fact that these
soils are rich; there is certainly no denying that they give a very low acre

Low acre yields on rich soils is practically invariably due to intqual-
ities in the supply of fertilizers or manures. A soil rich in organic
matter is likely to be rich in fertilizer nitrogen, but may be relatively
deficient in fertilizer potash and phosphoric acid. In a natt:rl; -tate
the potash and phosphates have been used over and over again in mtnking
crops of grasses, more or less of which belong to the legumu family.
Thus, there has been a constant increase in the supply of fertilizer ni-
trogen, but no corresponding increase in the supply of potasl: and phos-
phate. The result is that the soil becomes charged with vegetable matter
moderately rich in nitrogen, but low in mineral
Under these conditions, fair crops of stalks of straw may result, but
the grain will be low in quantity. Potash and phosphate are the de-
termining fertilizer ingredients in producing the seeds of plants; if
there is present in the soil relatively more available nitrogen than
available potash and phosphate to properly accompany same, the yield
of grain (seed) is controlled by the deficient mineral fertilizer. The
strength of the chain is the strength of its weakest link. Even the yield
of straw and stalks cannot go beyond a certain limit with a deficient
supply of potash and phosphate, though the nitrogen be abundant.
Though such soils are called rich, they are chiefly rich as regards ni-
trogen only, and too much nitrogen is only a trifle less harmful than
too little, especially in grain farming. These rich soils will amply repay
manuring with mineral fertilizers. They do not require heavy manuring,
or fertilizing rather, as do the more exhausted soils of the Atlantic coast
line, but the small quantity needed is just as important as the larger ap-
plications found necessary in the east. One hundred pounds of acid
phospate and 50 pounds of potash per acre will make a great showing,
though d6ubtless twice as much would still show a handsome margin of
Any kind of chemical fertilizer supplying potash and phosphoric acid
may be used. Finely ground bone meal is very useful as a source of
supply of the latter, while muriate of potash would be cheaper per actual
pound of potash than kainit, on account of the high freight rate. The
combination would show up well.-S. Cox, in Exchange.

Personal Experience With White Fly.

Last winter, as is well known, California sent one of her experts
to Florida to show us how to ararnge our tents and fumigate the white
fly-infested trees in the grove known as the Bank of Kinwood grove.
Professor Woodworth was assisted by Prof. Gossard, of Lake City. Only
one row of trees, with a few scattered trees, were fumigated. I think
nearly every egg was destroyed, and some trees partially defoliated,
but as soon as the fly was on the wing, on the adjoining trees (limbs
touching), they could soon spread to the trees again that had oeen
treated. While these experiments perhaps were effective, it was consid-
ered too expensive by a great many who witnessed the operation. The
trees cannot be treated with success while wet with dew; therefore they
must be fumigated in the day time. If the weather is cloudy, there
is very little danger of burning the tree, but if the sun is shining I believe
it is necessary to have colored tents.
We had between seventy and eighty acres of young trees that were
covered, more or less, with the white fly; these trees were from four to
ten feet high, and some few large seedlings. After gaining all the
information we could, we decided to spray with the rosin compound.
This we did, very thoroughly, once in the middle of December and once
in the middle of January, with a result that this spring we failed to
find a single fly, except a few (five or six), on a large tree standing
beside the fence dividing our grove from a badly infested grove belong-
ing to a neighbor. We were so well pleased that we shall continue to
use the rosin compound on any part of our grove that shows signs of
fly, and we think there is no better time than after the fruit has been
picked, in December and January. It will do no good to spray the
outside of the tree, as in treating the rust mite, but you must get under
the tree and fairly deluge the foliage on both sides. If this can be
done and twenty-four hours intervene without showers, the eggs and
larvae will be found dead. I think one need not fear the white fly
any more than the red scale.

the small trees, we do believe that we can keep the fly check, s that it
will not be necessary to spay orwash the fruit, and we shalt expect

foliage in every direction. If our State would legislate as the St;:te of
California does, each man would be compelled to rid his grov f all
injurious pests. As it is now, one man breeds enough insects (aj1 little
fruit) for his neighbors to fight the entire year. I believe the upO>-date
South Florida orange grower will never lose a crop of fruit fr.)i the

Celery growing in Florida, though in its infancy, is attracting much
attention, both in Forida and Northern States. Not many years ;>-o it
was thought impossible to grow celery in the South. This was, and is
still doubtless true of Southern States, too cold to grow it in the winter
months. Florida, however, is an ideal land for all such crops in winter.
Celery grows with us, under proper condition of soil and cult 2-e, as
readily as cabbage. Its growth and success as a money-making erop is
already' beyond the experimental stage-in South and Middle Forida.
There s but little doubt it can be grown equally well in most 4f the
Northe-n counties.. My own experience and observation, however, is
confined to South Florida-extending from DeLand to Tampa. My
home nd farm is- at LakelandL Polk county; where I and others have
raised (elery for the past three years. However, Mr. Neyland and others
of Tair pa have grown celery for a much longer period. Mr. Neyland
had in about twelve acres three years ago. He shipped by the car-load,
and realized $1,500 per acre net that season. Since his great success
that year many sections of South and Middle Florida have fallen into
line, ar d much success, both in growing and selling, is reported from
.the Maaatee section, Gainesville, Lakeland and other points.
I do Onot presume in this article to cover the entire field of celery cul-
ture in Florida. Six articles the length of this would be required- to do
that. A mere outline, therefore, is attempted, and this mainly taken up
with th? changes necessary to be observed in the method practiced by
growers of celery North and those who grow the crop in Florida.
In the first place, we grow celery in the winter. The difference,
therefore, in starting a seed bed is most marked. We usually com-
mence seed beds in August. This is a most trying month in Florida,
continual rains, with very hot sun. being the order, and seed can neither
germinate nor grow without protection, both from rain and sun. It
is absolutely necessary, therefore, to have a frame work over beds for sash
or awning to rest upon. The sash, etc., must be so constructed as to
be readily taken off and put on. The cloth for awning or sashes should be
light in weight and color. This will make it unnecessary to remove
them uritil after the seeds are up. Heavy or dark cloth obstructs the
light and hinders germination. Beds should be slightly elevated and six
to eight feet wide, with walks or alleys between them. Three sowings
may be made. The first the last week in August or first week in Sep-
tember; three weeks later another sowing/ and in October the last and
the largest sowing. The first and second sowings need not be verydlarge,
but sho d be pricked out for reset The October sowing need iot be
protected, and if properly thinned will make good plants without re-
The lest lands with us for celery growing are the timbered hmuck
lands. thesee are always full of moisture, vegetable decomposed Awatter
and hun us, making an ideal condition for plant foliage develop nnt.
This natural condition of soil, when supplemented by proper cLee icals,
gives a showy, highly flavored and tender plant.
These lands must be properly drained, cleared and prepare. It
may be found necessary to ditch deeply in order to remove trees, -s .nps,
etc., inm learning. In such a state ditches must be refilled wit .soil,
gates put in or some other system of irrigation put in. It is utterly
impossible to grow good celery in Florida without good water s5t)ply.
Rains with us in the winter are like angels' visits, very rare, i led.
As a general rule, your water level should be within eighteen inces of
the surface. With this idea in mind no great mistake need be 'iadc.
If your plat is so situated that you can hold the water level at ei6tcen
to twenty inches, you are all right for moisture; if not, you had better
put in an irrrigating plant. The best condition, however, is a sysft of
drainage and subirrigation in one. This is called Cole's svst of
subirrigation, and is quite costly and not much practiced on that aunt.
These muck lands must always be cropped by some grass feedersuch
as field corn, Irish potatoes, pumpkins, etc., before celery is attested.
Cow-peas are great soil correctors and soil builders, but are thought to
be great propagators also of insects and fungus which attack the lUung
plant and sometimes work great disaster in the seed beds. This, how-
ever, has not yet been fully proved, but I think there is suffiient ground
for the idea to make us cautious in the use of the pea.
Propagation of the soil is much the same as practiced north, only
we do not use much stable manure, but use instead chemical mixtuls of
ammonia, potash and phosphoric acid. The proportion of the individ-
ual ingredients are governed by soil conditions, but it is always press med
that celery requires much more ammonia than is found available ia anv
soil, so we give a larger proportion of ammonia for this crop tlma for
any other.

Plants are set on raised beds four feet wide, double drills, eight to
ten inches apart in each bed.
Blanching is done altogether by boards. Ten-inch boards, sixteen
feet long, are usually used, setting them on the outside of the doable
drills, making one set of boards do for two drills.
Shipping is usually done in barrels, eight or ten dozen in a barrel.
Usually they go through straight, but April shipments sometimes heat
With us the self-blanching dwarf varieties are used, the dwarf golden
self-blanching being preferred. Henderson's white plume does fairly
well, but is not so sure a header.
The general presumption is that Florida celery is inferior in flavor,
aroma and crispness. I do not believe that this is proven by the facts.
sOf ourse, in the present sta of experimentation, much of the stock
shipped is fe.rior Much of the celery grown in the State is grown
by persons having little practical knowledge of celery growimr. and so

Celery Growing in Florida.


Mrs. WW. & Jenninngs Gw es a Delight-
ful Dinner Prty.
On Wednesday the n Hotel was
the scene of one of the t brilliant
dinner parties ever give t at the? Sta'i
Capital, and as it was e first event
of the kind in the city t was greatly
enjoyed by the guests.
The dinner was a cry elaborate
one, and was given by 's. W. & Jen-
nings in honor of the ernor's cabi-
net. The table was pr sely decked
with many beautiful Bowers which
cast a delicious perfumejver the sur-
roundings, and added a louch of color
that was pleasing to t e eyes. The
flowers were mostly contributed by
friends of Mrs. Jennings. Among the
contributors were Mrs. {as. B. Whit-
field and Miss Fannie P4rkins, of this
city, and Mrs. V. H. Gvnn, of Chat-
tahoochee, wife of Dr. I. H. Gwinn;
superintendent of the ptate Insane
Asylum at that place.
Among the brilliant .assemblage at
the dinner were: Goveinor Jennings
and wife, Comptroller Crom and wife,
State Treasurer J. B. Whitfleld and
wife, Commissioner oft Agriculture,
Hon. B. E. McLin and e, Superin-
tendent of Public Inist on W. N.
Sheets and wife; Attorna General W.
B. Lamar, Mrs. W. D. l.oxham, Miss
Blanche Blake, Mrs. C. .A. Dickinson,
Hon. A. S. Man, wife aid daughter,
Miss Grace.
C. H. Dickinson, private secretary
to the governor, was unalte to be pres-
ent on account of being absent from
the city, while Secretary "of State Jno.
L. Crawford, Mrs. Lamar, mother of
the attorney general, ancf ex-Governor
W. D. Bloxham were kept away on ac-
count of illness. .
The occasion was made all the more
enjoyable by Miss Gertrude Chittenden,
whose rendition of sev*fal beautiful
selections on the piano captured every-
body. She was presented. with a mag-
nifiicent bouquet.
It is no exaggeration to pay that dur-
ing the past two weeks I have. read at
least--fifty editorials an4 articles by
men who acknowledge the justice of
woman suffrage, but at. the same time
delude themselves into believing that
they are doing no injustue to women
by withholding from them that which
they consider for themselves one of
the most sacred rights oi citizenship,
viz: the ballot. The Minneapolis Times
"The Times desires to state in be-
half of the men of the nation, that the
principal obstacle to the granting of
women's suffrage is in the disinclina-
tion on the part of the large majority
of women to accept such grant. This
being true, it would seem to be fair to
acknowledge that masculine skirts are
free from stain in this regard."
This is only an excuse for deferring
justice, and it would seen that those
making this excuse would realize how
thin it is. In the first pl4ce, how are
we to judge whether women want to
vote or not until we have given them
the opportunity? In the four enfran-
chised States the women vote as gen-
erally as the men and seem to enjoy
it. If you don't believe it, just try to
take the ballot from them and see what
will happen. If the women do not wish
to vote and still do so from a sense of
duty, they are the most conscientious
beings on the face of the earth, and are
certainly needed in governmental af-
fairs. I
There have been more petitions pre
sented to our Legislative bodies asking
that women be given the ballot than
all the other petitions combined. But
why demand that a majority of wo-
men petition for the ballot when no
such test has ever been required of the
various classes of men tha. have been
enfranchised since this Republic was
founded. Originally only free-hold-
ers voted. Did the poor nen unani-
mously petition for the franchise? Did
a majority of the negroes i-i the South
ask for the ballot? Have the majority

of the Alaskan men asked or it? Have
The various tribes of India men been
enfranchised because the 4 majority re-
quested it? Did the majt rity of the
Hawaiian men express a d ire for it?
Did a majority of the Port Rican men
insist upon being made voters? Is
universal male suffrage p ovided for
in the new Cuban constitute on because
a majority of the men hav petitioned
for it? Did a majority of he native-
born Chinamen ask for th ballot? Is
there in the whole history f our Gov-
ernment one-just on -instance
where any class of men h ve had the
franchi.3,, bestowed upon t m because
a majoriLy demanded it? ot in one
single case has this been done, and
yet Legislators, politician editors,
ministers, lawyers, dismiss he plea of
women for representation ith the il-
logical remark: "When t majority
ask for it they can have'i "
No one has ever asked that these
women who do not wish vote be
made to do so. we only as that those
women who do take an int est in the
affairs of their country be allowed to
express that interest at the ballot box.
This is simple justice, and is always
expedient to be just.

[It is now claimed that Gen. Israel
Puman never made his historic ride
down the stone steps, but that he took
a roundabout course through a hidden
They've knocked the pins from under
good old Jonah and the whale;
They've proved he never took that
thrilling inside way to sail;
They've shown by facts and figures
that fair Helen and the hQrse
Did not affect the Trojans with some
sad and sore remorse;
And now they rise to taunt us with
derisive jeer and whoop-
They say that good old Putmaa made
the biggest kind of loop!

They say he never galloped down the
famous stairs of stone;
That if he had he must have most in-
fallibly been thrown;
And, anyway, he. wan't there; and, if
he was, beside,
He couldn't take the flying trip-he had
no horse to ride;
And, furthermore, to history each
schoolboy is a dupe
Because, instead of jumping stairs, old
"Put' just looped the loop.
Good-by to "Put," he's gone 'way- back
with Jonah to sit down;
Along with Molly Pitcher, who ne'er
tucked her woolen gown
And fired the noisy cannon at the Brit-
isher dragoons;
He's gone to join the story of Ben But-

Take Putman from the Hall of Fame

They've proved by diagram and chart

In late years men have made for-
tunes out of the tailings of gold mines.
The mills in which the ore formerly
was crushed and the crude processes
then in use allowed a large percentage
of the precious metal to escape, and
that loss amounted in some cases to a
fortune. The stomach is just like a
stamp mill in this respect, that when
it is not in perfect orderit allows the
escape and waste of much of the pre-
cious nutriment contained in the food.
That loss when continuous means the
loss of man's greatest fortune-his
health. Science offers a remedy for
this condition in Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery.. It corrects the
"weakness" of the stomach, prevents
waste and loss of nourishment, and
puts the stomach and organs of diges-
tion and nutrition into a condition of
health which enables them to save and
assimilate all the nutriment contained
in the food which is eaten. In all
cases of constipation the use of Dr.
Perce's Pleasant Pellets will speedily
and permanently cure the disease.

In ihs official report of 1893 Surgeon-
General Sternberg quotes the following
paragraphs from Major C. K. Winne
as expressive of his own opinion cn-
cerning the canteen: f
"The canteen as originally proposed,
which had much to commend it, has
gradually been modified so that it is to
all intents and purposes simply an
authorized beer saloon kept open under
the auspices and with the approval of
the government. There can be no doubt
aa to the fact that the present-system,
like the old, does encourage, foster.
and often initiates the habit of fre-
quent tippling. here is no doubt that
many men, particularly young men,
who would either abstain or drink very
seldom if to do so they had to leave the
post, form.the habit of early drinking
and steady all-day drinking, when the
opportunities are so freely offered them
in immediate proximity to their bar-
racks, with the added association of
their comrades. From the canteen the
transition is easy to other places out-
side the limits of the garrison, where
stronger drink and other tempetations
are offered.
"As intoxicants are not needed as ac-
cessory foods it is neither good morals
nor good physiology to permit the in-
dulgence or so to supervise one vice
to a certain extent, then it naturally
follows that other vices should be
placed in the same category. There is
no logical reason why every post
should not be provided with a detach-
ment- similar in kind to that famous
corps which Brantome describes as ac-
companying the picked column of the
Duke of Alva in his celebrated march
,to invade the Netherlands."


Out of the Warm g rain and fog
That hid the mountain from our mget
A dusky cloud cuame floating down
At early dawn of light.
The cloud dropped softly to the lake
Amid a soumd of whirring wings
And spread into a graceful line
A ost of living things.
We bailed this burst of joyous life;
The sunless day vmed dark no more,
When sultenly a shot ring out
And echoed round the shore.
The waterfowl were nature's guests.
But tlicy were doonedn and all that day
The shots pealed forth, and on the waves
The dead and dying lay.
At last into the brooding mist
There vanished, softly as it came,
A broken flock, with plumage torn,
After that day of shame.

If you should want an island-that is.
an uninhabited island-for the pi)urpose
of occupying it alone, itobiuson Crusoe
like, or to use it for romantic fiction or

for any other purpose, to the exclusion
of all others in the world, you need have
no trouble in finding one if you see fit
to make a journey to the Indian ocean.
In the waters between Madagascar and
India you can find more than 15,000 of
them. where there is not a human be-
Ing and where you can. if you will, be
monarch of all you survey.
An English traveler has recently been
among the small islands that dot the
western end of the Indian ocean to
make an inventory of them and re-
ports that he counted 16,100 and found
only about 600 of them inhabited.
Now, there is a good chance for any
one who may want an island.
These particular islands are not large,
as islaids go, but very many of them
are sufficient for the purpose of a Rob-
inson Crusoe or any other novel hero
or for even a small colony of ship-
wrecked mariners or other persons who
might be cast on one of them or seek
for the purpose of making a home pret-
ty much out of the busy world.
Some of them are only an acre or
two, well elevated above the tide, while
others are a quarter of a mile in diam-
eter and running from that up to a mile
or two in length and a quarter or less
of the length in breadth. Many of
them are granitic structures that rise
steeply from 20 to 100 feet. well cover-
ed with rich soil, through which small
fresh water streams hurry to the fea.
which they reach after flowing over
beaches of glistening calcareous sand
that are begirt by coral reefs, .which
form walls about the islands.

All Doctors have tried to cure CA-

cannot reach the disease. An old and

To Florida, Cuba, Savannah, Cam-
den, Southern Pines and Pinehurst
Winter excursion tickets were placed
on sale to resort points on this line in
North and South Carolina, Georgia
and Florida, on October 15th, and will
remain on sale during the season. Ex-
ceptionally low rates are in effect this
year to Pinehurst and Southern Pines,
N. C., Camden, S. C., Savannah, Ga-,
and all points in Florida and Cuba.
To reach any of these points, the ser-
vice of the Seaboard Air Line Railway,
"Capital City Route," will be found
the best and most attractive. In addi-
tion to the superior service now op-
erated, it is announced that Cafe
cars will be placed in service on the
Washington-Atlanta Line about Nov-
vember 1st, and on the Florida Lines
about January 1st, 1902. Following
this the Florida & Metropolitan Limit-
ed will be inaugurated about January
15th, 1902, with sumptuous appoint-
ments and superb equipment, includ-
ing dining and club cars, constituting
it beyond a doubt, a peer of any train
in the world.
The service of the Seaboard Air
Line Railway to Cuba is most attrac-
tive. Its Cafe car service and many
other features present advantages com-
mending it to the favorable attention
of all travelers.

The first message of President Roose-
velt is a very able document, just such
as a man of his recognized ability
might be expected to prepare and sub-
mit to Congress. From Mr. Roose-
velt's spectacular temperament many
people thought that his message would
teem with the big I and little u. But
it didn't. It was really a very sensible
message, and handled public affairs in
a vigorous manner.
In the opening, Mr. Roosevelt pays
a glowing tribute to the late President
McKinley, of whom he said: "The
shock, the grief, of the country are
bitter in the minds of all who saw the
dark days while the President 7et
hovered between life and death. At
last the light was stilled in the kindly
eyes, and the breath went from the
lips that even in mortal agony uttered
no words save of forgiveness to his
murderer, of love for his friends and
unfaltering trust in the will of the
Most High. Such a death crowning the
glory of such a life, leaves us with in-
finite sorrow, but with such pride in
what he had accomplished, and in his
own personal character that we feel
the blow, not as struck at him, but as
struck at the nation. We mourn a
good and great President who is dead,
but while we mourn we are lifted up
by the splendid achievements of his
life and the grand heroism with which
.he met his death."
The President then goes on to re-
commend that Congress take the nec-
essary steps to suppress anarchy in
this country. He reviews the business
conditions in the United States, and
our relations with other countries, and
strongly advocates the construction of
an isthmian canal, favors a larger
navy, and while he praises army re-
organization does not think we need
a larger standing army.
In handling the trusts, Mr. Roose-
velt says that the government should
control the trusts or else be controlled
by the trusts. As regards Chinese ex-
clusion, he does not come to the
point, but thinks that only the better
classes should be allowed to come in
from any country. The President
pays a tribute to the American wage-
workers, and says that the pauper
labor of other countries should not be
brought here to lower the standard.
The tariff also receives attention,
but Mr. Roosevelt has evolved a para-
dox in claiming reciprocity as a twin
sister of protection. The message fa-
vors a ship subsidy bill and says that
the American marine must again rule
the ocean. The President sounds the
praises of the single gold standard, as
was to have been expected.
As Mr. Roosevelt has long been a
eivil service reformer, his recommen-
dations on this line are in keeping

with his past policy. Another good
feature about the message is its refex
ence to forestry preservation and irri-
Taken as a whole, the message is
an ably prepared state document, in
keeping with the President's past ut-
terances. There are many parts with
which the Democrats cannot agree, but
we will have to take them for want of
something better.

Mrs. M. A. Close, of Nebraska, Was Cured of
Incipient Consumption After A11 Medical

Kearney, Neb., Jaly 8,19M0.

Dr. S. B. Hartman, Columbus, Ohio:
Dear Doctor--"I desire to express to you my sincere thanks for the in-
terest you have shown In my case, and for the timely aid and advice which
'has effected a care of as bad a case of consumption as could be well laagined.


thanks to Peruna,

"Peruna amnd Manalin have done what thirteen of the
best physicians In the country have ailed to do. For more
than three years I doctored for coo,'-Ampfieao, and spent
thirteen weeks in a Pulnonary Sanitarim at Milwaukee,
Wis.; but finding a yseff growing worse, as a last resort, I
came West where I was bedfast for many weeks, and the
physicians which my husband called gave no hope ut said,
SShe cannot possibly live more than a few days.' But
I fooled them all. In an incredibly short time after I began

to take Peruna the hemorrhages stopped. I began to mead slowly at first, bat
the improvement m more marked, and now I can truthfully say that
there is not the slightest trace of my old complaint.
"I ,would have written you a long time ago, but have purposely waited to
see if the effect was lasting; and In conclusion I would say, God bless you and
keep you with us that you may go on with your work of mercy for many years
to come. "-M.M M. A. CLOSE.

northerly sisters and puts herself in
position to handle a pretty respectable
share of the freight for all of South-
ern Florida. Do away with strikes and
factional politics and there would be
no holding Tampa down even to the
size of the South's largest and most
progressive cities.

"FLORIDA papers, as a rule, are the
best printed and the best edited of
any I ever saw." The above remarks
have been made by three different
strangers in the State inside the past
two months while they wete scanning
the exchanges in the Tallahasseean of-
fice. They were all newspaper men
and competent judges, too. This speaks
well for the Florida editors. They are
really a deserving lot of good, energetic
people. It is a noticeable fact, how-
ever, that they are not as liberally pat-
ronized as some of their brethren of
other States, who do not render such
good service. We hope to see these
conditions change some day.

The Tallahasseean deeply sympa-
thizes with Brother McCreary in the
loss of the Gainesville Sun office. The
plant, records, etc., were completely
destroyed by fire, entailing a loss cf
$8,000 br more, with less than $2,000 in-
surance. The fact that not an issue
of the paper was missed shows com-
mendable energy and we trust that
Brother Mc. will soon recuperate his
losses. The Sun has been a great fac-
tor in the development of Alachua
county, and the business men, not only
of Gainesville, but of High Springs,
Rochelle and other villages, should
rally to its support now that it needs
it so much.

A GOOD many business people of Tal-
lahassee have recently expressed them-
selves to the Tallahasseean as being
willing to give certain large sums of
money to bring industries here that
will develop the city and surrounding
country. It strikes us as a capital
idea for all those who are thus in-
clined to get together and organize a
sort of home improvement company or

concerned, they are as much entitled
to admittance as some that have al-
ready become members of the Union.

THE Daily Capital appeared Tuesday
as a morning paper. I. B. Hilson is
manager and proprietor, S. B. Russ,
editor and W. B. Crawford city editor.
With this staff, Manager Hilson ought
to be able to get out a good paper.
Here's success to him.

POLITENESS does not cost anything,
and besides making friends it adds
considerably to one's capital-in busi-

wife is-well, unworthy the wife.

Some of the old time operations of
the miners for placer gold and the use
of the hydraulic "giant" have sug-
gested an ingenious method of con-
structing dams for reservoirs in the
West The hydraulic giant was found
to be a most effective and powerful
agent in removing even compact bodies
of earthen materqil. A stream of water
brought from an elevation under great
pressure and directed against the face
of a hill in whikh gold was supposed
to restore its weay into the mass with
tremendous force cutting out large
amounts of the material and washing
them away, the ivaste water assorting
the fine from th% coarse particles. The
sand and gravel rhus washed away was
carefully examined for the precious
Of recent year hydraulic power has
been employed tb almost reverse this
process, Enginers appreciating the
great transporting* and assorting power
of water used in this way to build up
instead of tear dpwn the land; and by
carefully guidingthe material loosened
by the force of "rater they have been
able to accummiilate and arrange it
almost at will. The process has been
found especially useful in the construc-
tion of dams. Fot example, if an earth
a 5

dam is to be built, the material rolel
along by the .water is carried into
flumes to the selected spot. On leaving
the flume small boulders and coarse
gravel are at once deposited. The sand
flows on farther, and the fine mud it
carried in suspension for considerable
distances. Jt is thus possible to deposit
the gravel on the outer slope of the
dam and the finer material in the cen-
ter, thus making a central impervious
clay way and heavy coating of coarser
gravel on the upper and lower faces of
the dam. The material being deposited
under water is thoroughly compacted,
and there is less danger of settlement
or of porous layers being formed than
in the case of dirt placed by carts or
scrapers. A number of dams. notably in
Southern California and in Texas have
been built with extraordinary speed
and small expense in this way and even
high railroad embankments have been
constructed in like manner.
This method of construction of damns
is being made the subject of study of
the Division of Hydrography of the U.
S. Geological Survey, in connection
with investigations as to the feasibility
of reclaiming the arid lands of the

The terndeney of catarrh of the head
is to pass downward through the bra.
chial tubes to the lungs. Any one who
has had catarrh of the he.d for a yearo
more finds the disease gradually pr
7Tessing downward. In some cases the
progress is rapid, and in other cases itis
slow; but sooner or later if catarrh h

The catarrh usually beins as a cold ia
t:i, head or throat, and is neglected until
i- becomes chronic; then it beins.-t

Unless he is very foolish indeed he will
not rest easy until the catarrh is entirely
cured. Thousands pay no attention to
it until it is too l=to.
Mrs. J. Priest, Lee, Mich., writes:--I
think there is no medicine on earth that
excells Peruna. My husband won't take
any other. We have tested it and it
worked a great change in my son's
health last spring when we thought he
was going into consumption. We gave
him only one bottle and he was all right.
I tell everybody about hew much good
it has done us. My husband says he
can't do without it. As for myself it
saved me seven years ago from goings
blind. I could not see to read one word
for six weeks. I thought I should surely
lose my sight. I commenced taking Pe-

bottle I could see to read as well as ever.

Six topographic maps of different
sections of California have recently
been issued by the U. S. Geological
Survey; they are: the Redlands Quad-
rangle of the country in the vicinity
of Redlands, showing a portion of the
mountain country to the north includ-
ing part of the San Bernardino Forest
Reserve the various canals used in
connection with the irrigation of the
Redlands district also appearing; the
San Jose Quardangle showing the city
and vicinity of San Jose; the San Luis
Rey Quadrangle in the southwestern
part of the' State adjoining the coast
and in the neighborhood of Escondido,
the San Luis Rey Valley much of which
is entirely dry during the summer, be-
ing clearly shown; the San Jacinto
Quadrangle of part of the San Jacinto
mountains and Forest Reserve and the
city of the same name, the irrigating
canals are here also shown; the Kar-
quines Quadrangle of the land lying
on each side of Karquines Strait to the
north of Oakland; and the San Mateo
Quadrangle from San Francisco fifteen
miles south including the city of San
Mateo and showing the coastline of
the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco
Bay. All of the maps are new except
the San Mateo and San Jose sheets,
which are reprints. they show all the
towns and villages included within their'

limits, all rivers, roads and trials and
by the use of contour lines clearly indi-
cate the topography or relief of the
country. They may be had on applica-
tion to the Director of the Geological

What Forty Poles Make.
A good story is told about a certain
professor whose business it was to lec-
ture to a nu ber of students on sur-
veying. During one of the lectures, the
professor said that in his opinion the
pole was of litle or no value. To the
astonishment f those present a Polish
gentleman ar e and, after accusing
the professor f insulting his country-
men, dema ded an apology.
The pro ssor thereupon explained
that the p e to which he referred was
merely a term of measurement. The
Polish gentleman, seeing his mistake,
asked the professor to forgive his ap-
parent rudeness. To this the professor
smartly replied:
"You could not be rude, sir, even if
you tried, for it takes 40 poles to make
one rood!"
Quite Fit.

And see a world of showers and Gome
And laughing children pass,
And in her big blue sunbonsmt
One other little laws-
A lass who watched the swallow
Skim just beyond her hand
And where the flickers tied and sps
And nests of hang birds fanned
And felt those birds were fairy k&
On wing to fairyland.
In her warm fist she carried,
Trudyig o'er hills and dale
In tiny papers laid and weighed
As if in fairy scales
Tec salt that catches bobolinks
When sprinkled on their tails.
A little lasm and wistful,
Who gazed up the far sky,
And reached for fairy things and wla
In vain and wondered why;
Pooflittle lasm, I wonder still,

A Persian Legend About the C

legend for what you said just now. It
is this:

"And so Allah and the angel descend-
ed Invisible in a cloud to the earth,
and the first place at which they ar-
rived was France-that is, in Feren-
ghistan. And there they saw the rail-
roads, and the tramways, and the the-
aters, and the great picture galleries.
And Allah looked in disappointment
and said: 'Alas, no! This is not the
world which I made. I made none of
these things.'
"So they journeyed to Inglezistan-
that is, England and there wera
mighty ships in the harbors and lfuge
mills which make all sorts of things
and food in plenty. And again Allah
said: 'Alas, no! This is not the world
which I made.' And everywhere they
traveled in the cloud Allah looked upon
the land and said, 'No; this is not it'
"At last, in despair, the angel led thl
way to Persia, and Allah sat himself
down upon a very high mountain, and,
looking far on every side, he saw nei-

The following paper was read by Fred W. Mally at the Farmers' Con-

* There are three principal insects which attack stored grain. These
are the black weevil, the red grain beetle and the Angoumois moth.-
The habits and transformations are in all cases much the same. Thel
eggs are laid within the grain, both before and after gathering. Thel
eggs hatch, the worms feed and mature on the inside of the grain, andI
Then eat out and escape as adults. The time occupied in the trans-q
formation from pgg to adult again varies from three weeks to six,,
owing to the temperature which may prevail at any specified time.
The best remedy against all of them is the use of bisulphide of
carbon, or "high life," as it is popularly called. It will be economy in

tight-fitting openings. The amount of high lifewill depend somewhat upon
the tightness of tie bins, though the latest tests have shown that quite /

The pupil of today would think his
opportunities very great if he could
see the school equipment of a hundred
years ago. A Morris county (N. J.)
school of that period is thus described
in an old letter of one of its attendants:
The building was constructed of logs,
and instead of glass for windows,
sheepskins were stretched over the
apertures made by sawing off an occa-
sional log. The windows had one
merit-they prevented pupils from
being interrupted in their study by
what was going on outside. The time
was regulated by an hourglass, and
the pupils drank water from a tum-
bler made of a cow's horn .or from a
ground shell.
In spite of these differences of equip-
ment, the schools of a century ago re-
sembled those of today in one notable
respect-they had for the most part
the same great literary works that are
the standards of our language now.
The greatest literature is fortunately
the possession of many centuries.

Mr. Wallis was defending the will of
a wealthy testator, and, as the lawyers
say, when the estate is large a lawyer
"will wrestle with a will with a will."
A prominent physician was called to
testify for those contesting the will.
The doctor became restless under the
lengthy and exhaustive cross examina-
tion of Mr. Wallis, and finally he petu-
lantly exclaimed:
"Oh, Mr. Wallis, I believe the testa-
tor was insane!"
Mr. Wallis kept his temper and said
quietly: "Doctor, you are the first per-
son who has ever- intimated in or out
of court that the! testator was insane.
Why do you say *4. was insane?"
"I believe." thel doctor replied, "that

"Is it your d&lberate professional

complicated machinery. To Increase
the production of beets we must largely
decrease the. area devoted to wheat-
the staple which has given us a mono-
poly of many markets.
The South is the home of the cane.
The lands that would be devoted to it
are largely vacant now, and its culti-
vation would not encroach upon the
cotton crop. We could supply the do-
mestic market without an industrial
change of any moment, and it would
only be necessary to provide the fac-
tories. The capital invested in a beet
refinery must remain idle for more
than half the year; the factory for
cane would be in operation the whole
year, and pay steady wages to its em-
ployees; beets will not wait--cane will.
With all her cane lands under culti-
vation, Florida could supply the deficit
for the home market-with Georgia to
help her the two sisters would do the
work now demanded without interfer-
ing with any present duty. Giving
part of the business to other Southern
States that have the land and the cli-
mate, asking only the factory, we could
become independent of the rest of the
world for sugar in ten years without
subsidy or. any disturbance of our na-
tional industries. With every help
that could possibly be given by legis-
lation, it would take beets thirty years
to accomplish the same result on cost-
lier lands and at the expense of our
bread crop.
Now, it is only necessary that capital

S BALTIMORE, Md., March 3o, 1ot.
Getlesmen:- Being entirely cured of deafness, thanks to your treatment, I will now give you
a full history of my case, to be used at your discretion.
About five years ago my right ear began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my hearing in this ear entirely.
I underwent a iteatment for catarrh, for three pionths, without any success, consulted a num-
ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent ear specialist of this city. who told me that
only an operation could help me, and even that only temporarily, that the head noises would
then cease, but the hearing in the affected ear would be lost forever.
I then saw your advertisement accidentally it a New York paper, and ordered your treat-
ment. After I had used it only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and
to.dav. after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear has been entirely restored. I thank voc.
heartily and beg to remain Very truly yout.

Simon Blade again left me to answer
the de nds of the new-comer. I went
into th bar-room, in order to take a
closer rvation of Willy Hammond,
in wh an interest, not unmingled
with cern, had already been awak-
ened i my mind. I found him engag-
ed in pleasant conversation with a

went briskly to his work of mixing

and h plans and purposes for the
future.| The house, yard, garden, and

order; presenting, in the whole, a
model f a village tavern.
"Wh ever I do, sir," said the talk-
ative Smon Slade, "I like to do well.

Why, already, since I built and opened
the 'Sickle and Sheaf,' property has
advanced over twenty per cent, along

"Other causes, besides the simple
opening of a new tavern, may have
contributed to this result," said I.
"None of which I am aware. I wasi
talking with Judge Hammond only yes-
terday-he owns a good deal of ground
on the street-and he did not hesitate
to say, that the building and opening
of a good tavern here had increased

thousand dollars. He said, moreover,
that he thought the people of Cedar-

would contribute ten dollars for the
The ringing of the supper-bell inter-
rupted further conversation; and with
the best of appetites. I took my way to
the room, where a plentiful meal was
spread. As I entered, I met. the wife
of Simon Slade, just passing out after
seeing that everything was in order.
I had not observed her before; and
now could not help remarking that she
had a flushed, excited countenance, as
if she had been over a hot fire, and
was both worried and fatigued. And
there was, moreover, a peculiar expres-
sion of the mouth, never observed in
one whose mind is entirely at ease-an
expression that once seen is never for-
gotten. The face stamped itself in-
stantly on my memory; and I can
even now recall it with almost the or-
iginal distinctness. How strongly it
contrasted with that of her smiling,
self-satisfied husband, who took his
place at the head of his table with an
air of conspicuous importance! I was
too hungry to talk much, and so found
greater enjoyment in eating than in
conversation. The landlord had a morq
chatty guest by his side, and I left
them to entertain each other, while I
did ample justice to the excellent food
with which the table was liberally pro-
After suipper I went to the sitting
!'room an(d remained h-':' until ihe
lamps were lighted. A newspaper oc-
cupied my time for perhaps half an
hour; then the buzz of voices from the
adjoining har-room, which had been
increasing for some time, attracted my
attention, and I went in there to see
and hear what was passing. The firsi
person upon whocm, my eyes rested was
5-oung [Hammo' vwho sat talking with
a man older than himself by several
years. At a g nece, I saw that this
man could only associate himself with
Willy Hammond as a tempter. Un-
Sscrupulous selfishness was written all
over his sinister countenace; and I
wondered that it did not strike every
one, as it did me, with instant repul-
sion. There could not be. I felt cer
tain, any common ground of asso-
ciation, for two such persons, -ut the(
dead level of a village bar-room. I af-
terward learned, during thb evening
that this man's name was Harvey
Greene, and that he was an occasional
visitor at Cedarville, remaining a fe'w
days, or a few weeks at a time, as ap-
peared to suit his fancy, and having nc
ostensible business or special acquain-
tance with anybody in the village.
"There is one thing about him," re-
marked Simon Slaile, in answering
some question that I put in reference<
to the man, "that I don't object to; h<

niggardly in spending it. He used tc
come here, so he told me, about onc

That's the way of the world. How apt
a scholar is our good friend Dusty-
coat, in this new school! Well, he
was a good miller-no one ever dis-
puted that-and it's plain to see that
he is going to make a good landlord.
I thought his heart was a little too

little coaxingly-for he saw that noth-
ing was to be gained by quarreling
with Morgan. "Maybe my heart is

talkative and very affable, and soon
formed a knd of center of attraction
to the bar-room circle. Among other
topics of conversation that came up
was the new tavern, introduced by the
landlord, in whose mind it was, very
naturally, the uppermost thought
"The only wonder to me is," said
Judge Lyman, "that nobody had the
wit to see the advantage of a good
tavern in Cedarville ten years ago, or
enterprise enough to start one. I give
our friend Slade the credit of being a
shrewd, far-seeing man; and, mark my
word for it, in ten years from today
he will be the richest man in the coun-
"Nonsense-Ho! ho!"- Simon Slade
laughed outright. "The richest man!
Yor forget Judge Hammond."
"No, not even Judge Hammond, with
all deference for our clever friend
Willy"-and Judge Lyman smiled
pleasantly on the young man.
"If he gets richer, somebody will be
poorer!" The individual who had ut-
tered these words had not spoken be-
fore; and I turned to look at him more
closely. A glance showed him to be
one of a class seen in all bar-rooms;
a poor, broken-down inebriate, with
the inward power of resistance gone-
conscious of having no man's re-
spect, and giving respect to none.
There was a shrewd twinkle in his
eyes, as he fixed them on Slade, that
gave added force tq the peculiar tone
in which his brief, but telling sentence
was uttered. I noticed a slight con-
traction on the landlord's ample fore-
head, the first evidence I had yet seen
of ruffled feelings. The remark, thrown
in so untimely (or timely, some will
say), and with a kind of prephetic
malice, produced a temporary pause in
the conversation. No one answered,
or questioned the intruder, who, I
could perceive, silently enjoyed the ef-
fect of his words. But soon the ob-
structed current ran on again.
"If our excellent friend, Mr. Slade,"
said Harvey Green, "is not the richest
man in Cedarville at the end of ten
years, he will at least enjoy the satis-
faction of having made his town rich-
"A true word that," replied Judge
Lyman-"as true a word as ever was
spoken. What a dead-and-alive place
this has been until within the last few
months. All vigorous growth had
stopped, and we were actually going to
"And the graveyard too"-muttered
the individual who had before disturb-
ed the self-satisfied harmony of the
company, remarking upon the closing
sentence of Harvey Green. "Come,
landlord," he added, as he strode across
to the bar, speaking in a changed,
reckless sort of a way, "mix me up a
good hot whiskey-punch, and do it
right; and there's another sixpence
toward the fortune you are bound to
make. It's the last one left-not a
copper more in my pockets," and he
turned them inside out, with a half-
solemn, half-ludicrous air. "I send it
to keep company in your till with four
others that have found their way into
that snug place since morning, and
which will be lonesome without their
little friend."
I looked at Simon Slade-his eyes
rested on mine for a moment or two,
and then sunk beneath my earnest
gaze. I saw that his countenance was
flushed, and that his motions were
slightly confused. The incident, it was
plain, did not awaken agreeable
thoughts. Once I saw his hand move
toward the sixpence that lay upon the
counter; but, whether to push it back,
Sor draw it toward the till, I could not
Determine. The whisky-punch was in
due time ready, and with it the man

sat down to enjoy the tempting bever-
Sage. As he did so, the landlord quietly
swept the poor unfortunate's last six-
pence into his drawer. The influence
Sof this strong potation was to render
the man a little more talkative. To
Sthe free conversation passing around
Shim he lent an attentive ear, drop-
ping in a word, now and then, that al-
ways told upon the company like a
Swell-directed blow. At last, Slade lost
l all patience with him, and said, a lit-
Stle fretfully-
"Look here, Joe Morgan, if you will
be ill-natured, pray go somewhere
Else, and not interrupt good feeling
among gentlemen."
S"Got my last sixpence," retorted Joe,


was the sky that bent gloomily over
thy young life.
Morgan rose, and suffered the child
to lead him from the room. He seem-
ed passive in her hands. I noticed
that he thrust his fingers nervously in
his pocket and that a troubled look
went over his face as they were with-
drawn. His last sixpence was in the
till of Simon Slade!
The first man who spoke was Har-
+ey Green, and this not for a minute
after the father and child had vanished
through the door.
"If I was in your place, landlord,"-
his voice was cold and unfeeling-"I'd
pitch that fellow out of the bar-room
the next time he stepped through the
door. He's no business here, in the
first place; and, in the second, he
doesn't know how to behave himself.
There's no telling how much a vaga-
bond like him injures a respectable
"I wish he would stay away," said
Simon, with a perplexed air.
"I'd make him stay away," said Har-
vey Green. e|
"That may be esier said than done,"
remarked Judge Lyman. "Our friend
keeps a public house, and can't just say
who shall and who shall not come into
"But such a fellow has no business
here. He's a good-for-nothing sot. It
I kept a tavern, I'd refuse to sell him
"Thai you might do," said Judge Ly-
man-'and I presume your hint will
not be lost on our friends Slade."
"He will have liquor so long as he
can get a cent U buy it with," re-
marked one of the company; "and I
don't see why our landlord here, who
has gone to so much expense to fit up a
tavern, shouldn't have the sale of it as
well as anybody else. Joe talks a little
freely sometimes; but no one can say
that he is quarrelsome. You've got to
take him as he is, that's all."
"I'm one," retorted Harvey Green,
with a slightly riffled manner, "who
is never dispose to take people as
they are when tlhey choose to render
themselves disagreeable. If I was Mr.
Slade, as I remarked in the beginning,
I'd pitch that fellow into the road the
next time he put his foot over my door
"Not if I were present," remarked
the other, coolly.

The business man keeps an accurate
account of his business. By studying
his books he can tell in what lines it
will be profitable to enlarge his busi-
ness. The business man knows what
he is doing. With the farmer there is
a good deal of guesswork. By keeping
books the farmer would know exactly
the source of his income and how it
was used. Whether his crops and stock
were profitable or a loss. It is not
enough these days that a man be a
good farmer, he must also be a business
man. Think about it now that the eve-
nings are growing longer.

their concert the Gainesville, Ga., Bagle
"The concert last night at Hurt's
Opera Bouse by ProL Chas. A.-Bice
and his three little children, Edmund,
Pauline and Joe, was witnesed by an
appeciative audience of music lover.
Theh little violinists are six, eight and
ten rears of .ige. b it it p. not their in-
fani years that gives attractiveness
to their performance, for their playing
is of a high order.
"The children are what may be
termed musical prodigies, rendering
the difficult music with a skill and cor-
rectiess that would have done credit
to adults of long training. It is sel-
doe, if ever, that such fine music has
been rendered in Gainesville, and never
was- a cultured audience so delightel
with a concert of like character."
Woodville, Dec. 5.-There is not
mu*h going on down here this week.
Everybody is lively and enjoying life,
with not much to do. Saturday was
quite lively. There was a good many
people here. Some came to mill, some
to get their mail, and others came to be
in company and to pass away the time.
All was quiet and peaceable.
