The yilar 1902 has been a memorable
Mne in Tallahassep. It has witnessed
many improvements, and the Capital
City has taken on a new lease of life.
Th laboring people have had plenty of
work, consequently they have, for the
most part. been contented, prosperous
and happy.
Business in all .branches has been
good; in fact. better than many antici-

and the outlook for 1902 was exceed-

An era of prosperity is dawning on the

Coming, but it is in sight at last, and if
the people will do their part the next
ten years will witness a growth unpar-

SWe are getting out of the ruts of old

best way to do this is for everybody to

front ranks of the prosperous cities of

The Country Gentleman remarks:
"For one thing, the test has shown
that the Channel Island breeds are
ahead-of all others for economical but-
ter production, as shown by the above
The Guernseys and. Jerseys come
from islands lying alongside of one
another, called Channel Islands.
The margin of superiority between
the first five competitors is so small it
can only be considered as pointing in-
stead ot leading to a conclusion. With
other cows of the same breeds, fed and
handled by other men, the result would
probably show up quite different in
margin of profit. But five cows chosen
as one might say at random, by differ-
ent men, is like analyzing a pill-box of
soil to detemine the character of soil on
a farm.
The average merit of a breed cannot
be determined with a herd of less than
twenty-five cows. and the more the
better. I do not know just what
'French Canadian" means as a breed,
though, of course, I have heard of the
French -Canadian Jerseys about Quebec,
and these may be simply unregistered
Canadian Jerseys. I believe there were
no Jerseys from the United States on
exhibition. In the "Study of Breeds
Shaw says: "It is more than probable
that the ancestry of French Canadian
cattle is identical with that of the
Channel Island breeds." This will
make the three leading breeds in the
above awards credited to the Channel
Islands. Of course, there are kicks
coming from all the other breeds in the
test, but tne result above is just about
what the well-informed dairyman ex-

It is now generally known and
understood that Drunkenness is a dis-
ease and not weakness. A body filled
with poison and nerves completely
shattered by periodical or constant use
of intoxicating liquors, requires an
antidote capable of neutralizing and
eradicating this poison, and destroy-
ing the craving for intoxicants. Suf-
ferers may now cure themselves at
home without publicity or loss of time
from business by this wonderful
"HOME GOLD CURE," which has
been perfected after many years of
close study and treatment of inebri-
ates. The faithful use according to
directions of this wonderful discovery
is positively guaranteed to cure the
most obstinate case, no matter how
hard a drinker. Our records show the
marvelous transformation of thou-
sands of drunkards into sober, in-
dustrious a2d upright men.
This remedy is in no sense a nostrum,
but is a specific for this disease only,
and is so skillfully devised and pre-
ipared that it is thoroughly soluble and
pleasant to the taste, so that it can be
given in a tlup of tea or coffee with-
out the knowledge of the person tak-
ing it. Thousands of drunkards have
cured themselves with this priceless
remedy, and as many more have been
cured and made" temperate men by
having the "CURE" administered by
loving friends and relatives without
their knowledge in tea or coffee, and
believe to-day that they discontinued
drinking of their own fren will rm

Unhealthy Kidneys Make Impure Io

All the blood in your body passes through
your kidneys once every three minutes.
The kidneys are your
blood purifiers, they fil-
ter out the waste or
impurities in the blood.
rf If they are sick or out
of order, they fail to do
their work.
Pains, achesandrheu-
matism come from ex-
S- cess of uric acid in the
blood, due to neglected
kidney trouble.
Kidney trouble causes quick or unsteady
heart beats, and makes one feel as though
they had heart trouble, because the heart is
over-working in pumping thick, kidney-
poisoned blood through veins and arteries.
It used to be considered that only urinary
troubles were to be traced to the kidneys,
but now modern science proves that nearly
all constitutional diseases have their begin-
ning in kidney trouble.
If you are sick you can make no mistake
by first doctoring your kidneys. The mild

Catarrh has become such a common
disease that a person entirely free from
this disgusting complaint is seldom met
with. It is customary to speak of Catarrh
as nothing more serious than a bad cold,
a simple inflammation of the nose and
throat. It is, in fact, a complicated and
very dangerous disease; if not at first, it
very soon beconmcs so.
The blood is quickly contaminated by
the foul secretions, and the poison through
the general circulation is carried to all
parts of the system.
Salves, washes and sprays are unsatis.

and eliminates from the system all catar-

And right here the proper treatment
for anarchism is suggested. This coun-
try will always have Anarchists, as it
will always have- mad dogs. The peo-
ple kill mad dogs, as soon as symp-
toms of hydrophobia are noticed. Bit-
ing dogs are muzzled and chained. Peo-
ple who advocate and teach violence
can and should be confined. It is said
that the barking dog never bites. Those
who preach anarcnism may never have
bitten anybody, and it may be that
they never will. Their doctrines are
dangerous, however, and they should
be confined.

There need .be no fear of interfering
with personal liberty in locking up
Anarchists. Liberty does not mean
license to kill, or to incite others to
deeds of- violence, and when a man or
woman attempts to spread such a per-
nicious doctrine he or she becomes
a menace to society and should be
placed under the restraining influence
of a prison cell.
The majority of Anarchists in this
country are foreign born. The tyranni-
cal laws of their native lands give
them some excuse for hating the gov-
erning classes. This country, from its
foundation, nas been a refuge for the
oppressed and down-trodden of all na-
tions, and those who seek its shelter
should leave all anarchistic views be-
hind and make up their minds to sup
port the best ana most liberal govern-


'ent on earth.

If they can't do this, they should not
be allowed to land on the shores of
free America. We exclude the Chinese,
prohibit the landing of paupers, and'
quarantine against infectious diseases.
We can, therefore, legislate against the
landing of Anarchists. Our immigra-
tion laws should be such that if a man
can not show a clean record, morally
and politically, in the old country, he
will be denied admission into this.
'We extend a hearty welcome to the
frugal, industrious toilers of all coun-
tries, but have no use for Anarchists.
Don't need them in our business, and
the sooner they learn this the better
it will be for them.

AN exchange makes a big "adoo"
over the recent killing of a rattlesnake
about five feet long, in time to prevent
it from imbedding its deadly fangs in
the cheek of a colored woman. Pshaw,
that writer is not up-to-date, or he
would have had the reptile at least
eighteen feet long; and to make the
story even more thrilling, he would
have had a despairing lover rush up
frantically and slay the monster after
it had demolished the barn, swallowed
a cow and calf, and just as it was get-
ting ready to finish up on his sweet-
heart. Then, as a climax, after rescu-
ing the beauteous maiden from her
perilous position, he would have had a
happy wedding.

A MAN in Ohio pointed a gun at a
friend, "just for fun." He didn't know
it was loaded, and there was a funeral
next day. In the hands of a fool a gun
is a dangerous plaything, even though
it have neither lock, stock nor barrel.
The best thing to do when a fool points
a gun at you, "just for fun," is to tap
him over the head with a four-year-old
hickory club. Throw all the force pos-
sible into the tap, and after the man
is placed hors du combat, quietly ex-
amine the gun to see if it was loaded.

As hog-killing time is at hand I Vill
give our method dt treating meat.: as
it is somewhat different from some that
are being given in Home and Farm"
We -kill and dress our hogs like
Bssex Spurrier described in Home 4nd
Farm of December 1. Then- we cut m.p
rapidly while still warm and pack dotn
on inclined boards, side meat first, tlen
shoulders, then hams, rubbing with all
the salt they will take. The ribs, heads
and other parts are put in a pile .by
This meat is left thus for twenly-
four hours, when it is taken up and the
salt wiped carefully away. We cut the
side meat in lengthwise pieces, putting
the thin parts with hams and should-
ers, as it goes to make our breakfast
bacon. The thin part we treat abnut
the same way Mr. Spurrier recom-
mends. We salt :down heavily at ffst
so as to extract the blood and watir,
though there be men of many minds )n
this point.
When we are ready to pack down
hams, shoulders and breakfast bacon
we mix the following in a large pa:
For every thirty pounds of meat We
take one-half pound of salt, one poutui
of dark brown sugar, five ounces ea-h
of black pepper and spices, with just
enough. molasses to make it spread
well. We rub each piece thorougKly
and pack down in a nice new box, pin-
ting layers of salt between and in tJe
bottom, in which about a pound of salt-
peter has been mixed. We then noil
the box up airtight and leave them j.n
the mixture for four weeks, and sonme-
times for a longer period. When taken
out they are hung at once and smok'o
with a continuous fire of green opk
wood for two weeks; afterwards they
are put away between layers of chair-
coal broken in bits. The shoulders,
hams, and bacon are each put in a pfle
to itself so as to have it handy. '
Meat treated this way never sours

and bugs and worms do not touch it.
It has a most delicious flavor.

Nearly all the good roads agitatiqn
in the past has been directed toward
the building of stone roads or State sy-
pervision of roads or both. One, tWo

or three States so far as we know, have
entered upon a systematic course of
instruction in the building of earth
roads, which is the most important
phase of the entire matter. Nine-tenths
of road mileage is and will continue to
be dirt roads, for the amount of trade
does not warrant the cost of expensive
stone roads. It is, therefore, of the
greatest importance that attention be
given to the construction and repair
01 ordinary earth roads and that the
money appropriated for this purpose be
economically and intelligently, expend-
ed. The Rural World says: "We fear
in the pushing of the improvement of
the public highways the farmer has not
been given due consideration. While
the demand for better condition of
roads has been made from every point
of the compass and from all professions
and occupations (and the demand is a
most just and humane one), yet we do
believe that while others have agitated
the question, the farmer has furnished
the money and muscle that is giving us
better roads. The farmer is directly
benefited by road improvement, but
the business enterprises of the villages
and cities of that immediate vicinity
where means and labor have been ex-
pended on roads, have increased and
The farmer will continue to do his
part, he does not need instruction as
to proper methods of road construction,
and we have no class of people so
teachable. Attend a farmers' institute,
and if you are at all an observer of hu-
man nature you will note tne patient,
attentive manner in which farmers will
remain through a session of the insti-
tute, lasting tree of four hours, lis-
tening o the discussion of subjects rel-
ative to the improvement of their own
Agricultural boards should have -a
good roads department, which should
be conducted by a partial civil engin-
eer, thoroughly in sympathy with the
road improvement problem and prepar-
ed to give instruction in road building.
Such course would greatly hasten the
solution of the road improvement prob-
lem. The cry for better highways must
be followed with directions for making
them, or the cry will be futile.-Rural

Lake City, Fla., Dec. 20. 1901.
t,.tor Talliahasseean:
Dear Sir:-You are doubtless aware
that for the past tree years the de-
partment of agriculture of the Florida
Agricultural College has conducted a
series of farmers institutes in different
counties. The chief object of these
meetings,. as set forth in the resolution
of the board of trustees, was to render
"practical instruction and assistance to
the agriculturists of the State."
Therefore the work, to the extent of
about twenty institutes annually, has
been conducted without regular tfinau
cial support. The speakers who have
co-operated with the college authori-
ties have not only worked gratis, but
have paid their contingent expenses.
The railroads have been liberal in pro-
moting the work by furnishing trans-
portation free.
The last State Legislature, recogniz-
ing the value of the results accomplish-
ed and the opportunity for greater good
appropriated twenty-five hundred dol-
lars for maintaining the work during

each of the-two ensuing years. With
tnis provision, it will be possible to
materially increase the number of
workers, and to include every county
in the list of beneficiaries.
Under the present plan, your county
is entitled to the benefits of the farm-

The following is a summary of a bul-
letin from the Oklahoma station on
manuring soil:
Without going into detail as to the
various considerations that may affect
the results of manuring, at the present
stage of our agricultural practice, the
chief points to be observed are:
First-To manure the soil. Use all
the manure produced, prevent losses by
washing away, quit burning straw, haul
the manure onto the fields somewhere,
sometime, somehow.
Second-Manure the highest and
poorest spots, give a good application
at one time-from fifteen to twenty
two-horse loads-and manure another
place next time.
Third-Manure with reference to the
time of rainfall, to the next crop which
is to be grown, and to the other work
which must be done. Late fall and

All Doctors have tried to cure CA-
ARRH by the use of powders, aeld
gases, inhalers and drug in paste
iorm. .Their powders dry up the mu-
cuous membranes causing: them to
crack open and bleed. Thie powerful
acids used in the inhalers have en-
tirely eaten away the same mem-
branes that their makers have aimed
to cure, while pastes andi ointments
cannot reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has 1oi
many years made a close study and
specialty of the treatment of CA-.
TARRH, has at last perfected a Treat-
ment which when faithfully used, not
only relieves qt once, but permanently
cures CATARRH, by removing the
cause, stopping the discharges and cur-
ing all inflammation. It is the only
remedy known to science aJat actually
reaches the afflicted parts. This won-
derful remedy is known as "SNUF-
CURE," and is sold at the extremely
low price of one dollar, each package
containing internal and external meJ-
icine sufficient for a full month's treat-
ment and everything necessary to its
perfect use.
"SNUFFLES" is the only perfect
CATAkRH CURE -ever made and is
now recognized as the only safe and
positive cure for that annoying and
disgpUting disease. It cures all in-
flammation quickly and permanently,

One of our readers writes to say that
it is unnatural for hens to lay in win-
ter-that the production of eggs is cul-
tivated and not bred in nature's laws;
that wild birds, in their natural state,
do not mate and build their nests ex-
cept in summer, and so on with other
examples to prove his statement.
Possibly, in one sense, the gentleman
may be right, since hens, if left in na-
ture's charge, without the aid of man
to provide shelter and food, will not
Hens require heat, sunshine and food,
without which they cannot comply
with the laws ot nature and produce
eggs. It therefore follows that, in or-
der to keep the hens in condition to
lay, the surroundings during winter
must be made as nearly like those of
summer as it is possible to artificially
The house must be warm; the
scratching shed must be light and
roomy, and lastly, the food must be
good and wholesome. Under* these
conditions there is no reason why hens
will not lay as many eggs in winter as
in summer.
Eggs have been very high since Sen-
tember, and taose who have given the
hens attention have been well repaid.

are very fond of milk and grow fat on
it, but there can be no better or more
profitable way of utilizing it than by
feeding it to the laying hens and grow-
ing chicks.
It may be given them to drink, or it
may be used to moisten stale bread.
Any way, they relish it, and it makes
them thrifty.
Milk, to a certain extent, takes the
place of a meat diet, and is, therefore,
especially recommended during the cold
months, when the supply of bugs and
insects no longer exists. Young chicks
are very iond of milk, and grow rap-
idly when fed on it.
Buttermilk should be fed to the hogs,
but sour milk may be given the chick-
ens, though not so good for them as tae
sweet milk. If you have never utilize
your surplus stock of milk this way try
s, for a month, and see if the hens do
not lay more eggs.-Home and Farm.

It was impossible for Mrs. Morgan
longer to repress her feelings. As the
softly breathed strain died away, her
sobs broke forth, and for 4 time she
wept violently.
"There," said the child, "I didn't
mean to tell you. I only told father,
because-because he promised not to go
to the tavern any more until I got well,
and I'm not going to get wel. So. you
see, mother, he'll never gb again--

I'm so glad. How it would have hurt

ing that her mother still -wept, she
"Don't cry; maybe I'll be better."
And then her eyes closed heavily, and
she slept again.
"Joe," said Mrs. Morgan,. after she
had in a measure recovered herself-
she spoke firmly--joe, did: you hear

Morgan only answered with a groan.
"Her mind wanders, and yet she

Mrs. Morgan had tried to peak very
firmly; but as sentence followed sen-
tence, her voice lost more gnd more
of its even t'ne. With the closing
words all se.b-control vanished; ana
she wept bitterly. What vould her
feeble, erring husband do, 'but weep
with her?"
"Joe,"-Mrs. Morgan aroused herself
as quickly as possible, for she had that
to say which she feared she night not
have the heart to utter-"Joi, if Mary

her death."

"Nor your promise, Joe--nor your

'father! Father! oear father!"
Mary's eyes suddenly unclosed, as she
called her father eagerly.
"Here I am. love. What is it?" And
Joe Morgan pressed up to bedside.
"Oh! it's you, father! I dreamed
that you had gone out, and-and-but
you won't, will you, dear father?"
"No, love-no."
"Never any more until I get well?"
"I must go out to work, ybu know,
"At night, father. That's what I
mean. You wont, will you?"
"No, dear, no."
A soft smile trembled over the child's
face; her eyelids drooped wearily, and
she fell off into slumber again. She
seemed not so restless as before-did
not moan, nor throw herself about in
her sibep.

Mrs. Morgan looked earnestly/ into
her husband's face. His eyes were un-
usually bright, and she noticed a slight
nervous restlessness about his lips.
She laid one' of her hands on his, and
perceived a slight tremor.
"You must go to bed," she spoke
firmly. "I shall not let you sit up with
Mary. So go at once." And she drew
him almost by force into the next

wink of sleep in my eyes. I shall be

Even as he spoke there were nervous
twitchings of his arms and shoulders;
and as he entered the chamber, im-
pelled by his wife, he stopped suddenly
and said:
"What is that?"
"Where?" asked Mrs. Morgan.
"Oh,- it's nothing-I see. Only one of
my old boots. I thought it a great
black cat."
Oh! what a shudder of despair seized
upon the heart of the wretched wife.
Too well she knew the fearful signs of
that terrible madness from which,
twice before, he nad suffered. She could
have looked on calmly and seen him
die-but, "Not this-not this! Oh,
Father in heaven!" she murmured,
with such a heart-sinking that it seem-
ed as if life itself would go uot.
"Go to bed, Joe; get into bed as
quickly as possible.
Morgan was now passive in the hands
of his wife, and obeyed her almost
like a child. He had turned down the
bed-clothes, and was about getting in,
when he started back, with a look of
disgust and alarm.
"There's nothing there, Joe. What's
the matter with you?"
"I'm sure I don't know, Fan y," and
his teeth rattled together, as hut spoke.
"I thought there was a great toad un-
der the clothes."
"How foolish you are!"-yet tears
were blinding her eyes as she said this.
"It's only fancy. Get into bed and shut
your eyes. I'll make you another cup
of strong coffee. Perhaps that will do
you good. You're only a Ittle nervous.
Mary's sickness has disturbed you."
Joe looked cautiously under the bed-
clothes as he lifted them up still far-
ther, and peered beneath.
"You know there's nothing in your
bed; see!"
And Mrs. Morgan threw, with a sin-
gle jerk, all the clothes upon the floor.
"There now! look for yourself. Now
shut your eyes," she continued, as she
spread the sheet and quilt over him,
after his head' was on the pillow.
"Shut them tight and keep them so
until. I boil the water and make a cup
ort coffee. You know as well as I do
that it's nothing but fancy.
Morgan closed his eyes firmly, and
drew the clothes over his head.
"I'll be baesi in a few minutes." said
his wife, going hurriedly to the door.
Aire leaving, however, she partly turn-
ed her head and glanced back. There
sat her husband, unright and staring
"Don't, -Fanny! don't go away!" he
cried, in a frightened voice.
"Joe! Joe! why will you be so fool-
ish? It's nothing but imagination. Now
lie down and shut your eyes. Keep
them shut. There now."
And she laid a hand over his eyes,
and pressed it down tightly.
"I wish Doctor Green was here,'
said'the wretched man. "He could give
me something."
Shall I go for him?"
"Go, Fanny! Run over right quick-
"But you won't keep in bed."
"Yes, I will. There now," And he
drew the clothes over his face. "There;
I'll lie just so until you come back.
Now run, Fanny, and don't stay a min-
Scarcely stopping to think, Mrs. Mor-
gan went hurriedly from the room, and
drawing an old shawl over aer head,
started with swift feet for the resi-
dence of Doctor Green, which was not
yery far away. The kind doctor un-
derstood, at a word, the sad condition
of her husband, and promised to at-
tend him immediately. ,Jack she flew
at even a wilder speed, her heart
throbbing with vague apprehension.
Oh! what a fearful cry was that which

smote her ears as she came within a
few paces of home! She knew the
voice, changed as it was by terror, and
a shudder almost palsied her heart At
a single bound she cleared the. inter-
vening space, and in the next moment
was in the room where she had left
her husband. But he was not there!
With suspended breath, and feet that
scarcely obeyed her will, she passed
into the chamber where little Mary lay.
Not here!
"Joe, husband!" she called in a faint
voice. .

to save me from these dreadful crea-
tures. There now!" he cried, rising up
suddenly, and looking toward the door.
"Keep out! Go away! You can't come
In here. This is Mary's room; and
she's an angel. Ah! .ha! .1 knew you
wouldn't dare come in here-
"A single saint can put to flight,
Ten thousand blustering sons of hight."
He added in a half-wandering way, yet
with an assured voice, as he laid him-
self back ppon his pillow, and drew
the clothes over his head.
"Poor father!" sighed the child, as
she gathered both arms about his neck.
"I will be your good angel. Nothing
shall hurt you here."
"I knew I would be safe where you
were," he whispered-';I knew it, and
so I came. Kiss me, love."
How pure and fervent. was the kiss
laid instantly upon his lips! There
was a power in it to remand the evn.
Influences that were surrounding and
pressing in upon him like a flood. All
was quiet now, and Mrs. Morgan nei-
ther by word or movement disturbed
the solemn stillnep that reigned in the
apartment. In a few minutes the deep-
ened breathing of her husband gave a
blessed intimation that he was sinking
into sleep. Oh. sleep! sleep! How
tearfully, in times past, bad she prayed
that he might sleep; and yet no sleep
came for hours and days-even though
powerful opiates were given-until ex-
hausted nature yielded, and then sleep
had a long, long struggle with death.
Now the sphere of his loving, innocent
child seemed to have overcome, at
least for the time. the evil influences
that were getting possession even 'f
his external senses. Yes, yes, he was
seeping! Oh, what a fervent "Thank
God!" went up fiom the heart of the
stricken wife.
Soon the quick ears of Mrs. Morgan
detected the doctor's approaching foot-
steps, and she met him at the door
with a finger on her lips. A whispered
word or two explained the better aspect
of affairs, and the doctor said, encour-
"That's gocd, if he will only sleep
"Do you think he will, doctor?" was
asked anxiously.

Both passed noiselessly into the bed-
chamber. Morgan still slept, and by
his deep breathing it was plain that he
slept soundly. And Mary, too, was
sleeping, her face now laid against her
father's, and her arms still about his
neck. The sight touched even the doc-
tor's heart and moistened his eyes. For
nearly half an hour he remained; and
then, as Morgan continued to sleep, he
left medicine to be given immediately,
and went home, promising to call early
.in the morning.
It is now past midnight, and we leave
the lonely, sad-hearted watcher with
her sick ones.
