A communication was received from
the Executive Department, calling the
attention of the board to section 5,
chapter 4670, Laws of Florida, 1899,
which was read, and the clerk ordered
to furnish the State Board of Pensions
a certified list of all pensioners of this,
county, and to publish said list two in-
lerticrs in a newspaper published in
the city of Tallahassee.
Permission was granted John A.
Prce, sheriff to examine a prisoner
OW in Hancock's convict camp, for

Dr. Carn Talks About Factories and

: Good Roads.

Dr. J. M, Cam, one of Leon's leading.
practitioners, was in Tallahassee Tues-
day from bis home at Centreville. The
doctor is Dossessed of a strongly-rootad
faith in the future of Leon county. TI
the Tallahasseean man he said:
"I wish to commend 'The Tallahas-
seean for'the advanced stand it ha3
taken in booming this section. We
want more factories in Tallahassee, the
more the better. We want anything
that will bring consumers to this sec-
tion, that is, people, who will consume
what the tarmers raise. Every citizen
in the citi shouko rush to The Talla-
hasseean's assistance, and use their ut-
most influence to secure any manufac-
turing enterprise that will give em-
ployment to the unemployed.
"Anothew thing I am strongly in fa-
vor of is a tond issue for road building.
Good roads will enhance the value of
every farnt in the county. They will
enable the farmers to haul loads one
hundred per cent. larger than they caa
ordinarily haul, and they can male
more trips in a day, with less worry to
the horses and stock, and greater sav-
ing to wagons and other vehicles.
"My wife is a strong advocate of
good roads, too. She has just returned
from a two. weeks' visit with friends In
Ocala, and *since seeing the good roads
down therv is stronger in the faith
than ever. It is not only the farmers
who should work for road improve-
ment. The merchants and citizens gen-
erally are benefited, and they should

The Session Was Purely a

Business Meeting


Don't Want Special Privileges
Granted to Any One Person.

re City Council had agreed to take
he front page of the Times-Union and
Citizen, for which the city would pay
150, and asked the county to take the
second page, which could be obtained
or $100. He was confluent that the
noney would be well spent, stating fur-
her that the entire cost of the illus-
rations and write-up would be. in-
luded in the price paid for the page.
In the course of nis remarks Mr. Ed-
nondson urged upon tne commission-
rs the great advantages to the city
nd county that would result from such
n advertisement. As an extra in-
lucemint, he said that in addition to
;oing to all the regular subscribers of
he Times-Union and Citizen, the com-
nissioiners will receive 500 extra copies
Df the paper. The write-up will appear
ome time in February.
Commissioner J. W. Johnson was op-
posed to the proposition. It was his
Dpinion that if money were to be spent
n advertising tne county it should be
spent at home. He said that Talla-
hassee .had a first-class weekly and an
up-to-date daily, both of which were
constaiuy working for the advance-
ment of the county's interests, and was
of the opinion that the money should
not be -sent away from home, when it
could be spent profitably with the pa-
pers in our midst.
Councilman Edmondson endeavored
to explain to Mr. Johnson that the ad-
vantages to this section would not be
iear so great were the money to be
spent with the home papers, as their
circulation could not compare with the
Jacksonville papers. According to Mr.
Edmondson, it was Mr. Stockton's sin-
cere desire to help this entire section
of the $tate, and bring its advantages
promin4ntly before the world. To
this end, a very liberal offer had been
made, the price asked being even be-
low the regular advertising rates.
Commissioner Johnson was not of
the opinion that the county would be
given nMore than it paid for, as the
Times-Union and Citizen was not in
business to give something for nothing.
He could not understand why the above
paper was so anxious to boom this sec-
tion nov, and advertise its wonderful
advantages and resources to the world,*
when only a few months ago this was
described as the most barren and
worthless section of Florida. Mr. John-
son said that the Times-Union. and
Citizen was after the State Capital
then, and could not think of anything
good to say about us. But'since Talla-
hassee has taken the capital .he did
not think that we should impose upon
good nature by asking Mr. Stockton to
give two or three hundred dollars worth
of work for a paltry hundred, dollars.
Commissioners Yaeger and Moor fa-
vored the proposition, and were of the
opinion that it would be money well
spent. After some further discussion,
Commisstoner Moor moved that the
county accept the second page for the
sum of $100,which motion was asecond-
ed by Commissioner Stoutamire. Upon
a vote being taken "Oommissioners
Moor and Stoutamire voted aye, and
Commissioners Smith and Johnson

nay. The chairman had the deciding

Tre~ury Department, State of Flor-
ik 0 Comptroller's Office,Tallahas-
see, Dec. 31, 1901.
Hon. W. 8. Jennings, Governor of the
Sta4t of Florida, Tallahassee, Fla.:
Sir4-A careful review of the financial
condition of the State is a source of
congratulation to the people of the
The appropriations made by the Leg-
islature at the regular session for 1901
for the two years from July 1st, 1901,
to July 1st, 1903, to be paid from the
General Revenue Fund exceed those
made, for the two previous years by
more than $320,000.00. This would ne-
cessitate an' increase in the tax levy,
if relief could not be found in an in-
crease of revenues from other sources
than taxation, and in a reduction of
the current expenses of the State.
In refunding the State bonds hereto-
fore bearing 6 and 7 per cent interest
in 3 per cent. bonds, there will be an
annual saving of more than $30,000.00.
The deficiency in 1900 of $35,000.;0)
in maintenance of the insane is not
likely to again occur, nor will we in the
ordinary range of probability be called
upon for over $22,000.00 for the relief
and protection of a tire stricken por-
tion of our State.
The annual expenses attending tax
sales have been greatly reduced and
all expenses have been curtailed to the
lowest, possible point consistent with
safe administration.
The total revenue producing property
for mlteh taxes can be collected is in-
1- M --beVverw- halt mil-
lion dollars larger this year than last.
The receipts from licenses and other
smaller sources not derived from tax
levies are steadily growing, and while
the balance in the General Revenue
Fund is somewhat smaller than it was
a year ago, nearly all of the very ex-
traordinary appropriations for the last
six months of 1901 have been met and
there is still a balance of $190,482.12.
The appropriation for the Capitol im-
provement will require very little more
than the expenses of a Legislative ses.
sion, and as both will not have to b
met the same year there is an opportu-
nity to give some relief to the tax pay-
The law provides for a levy of 3 mills
for general revenue purposes and au-
thorizes the Governor to reduce the
same as low as he may deem advisable.
In view of the facts above stated, I
earnestly recommend for your consid-
eration that the 3 mills authorized fio
general revenue purposes by the Legis-
lature be, by executive order, reduced
to 2% mills for the year 1902.
Yours respectfully,
A. C. CROOM, Comptroller.

State of Florida, Executive Depart-
ment, Tallahassee, Jan. 8th, 1902.
Hon. A. C. Croom, Comptroller of the
State of Florida, Tallahassee, Fla.:
My Dear Sir-I have the honor to
acknowledge the receipt of your com-
mupication dated December 31st, 1901,
in reference to the financial condition
of the State at the close of the year,
and note that you find from a general
review of the financial condition that,
notwithstanding the extraordinary ap-
propriations made by the Legislatdre
at the regular session of 1901, to be
paid from the general revenue fund,
which exceeds those made for the two
years previous upwards of $320,000 for
the purposes of employment of Su-
preme Court Commissioneps, for con-
stricting substantial buildings and in
improving facilities for the higher ed-
ucation of the youth of our State, im-
proving public buildings, State insti-
tutions, the capitol building, for the
relief and protection of the fire stri-ken
city of our State, and deficiencies, all


of which were wisely made to meet thic
aemnxds of the progress ot our rapidly
growing State, the tax rate to meet the
expenses of the State government for
the year 1991 can, if so directed by me,
be reduced from three mills as provid-
ed by law, tq two and a half mills.
I beg to assure you that it is a sou-ce
of much gratification that this condi-
tion is found to exist, which has been
accomplished by the successful man-
agement of the affairs of State by the
administrative officers.
After the consideration of your re-
port and recommendation, I have de-
cided to reduce the tax rate from three
(3) mills, as provided by law, to tw
and a half (2%) hills, and you are
hereby authorized and empowered to
direct the tax assessors to levy a two
and a half mill tax on the real and per-
sonal property of the different counties
for the year A. D. 1902, to be appro-
priated for the current expenditures of
the State and for the interest on the
bonded debt
I nave the honor to remain,
Yours with much respect.
W. S. JENNINGS, Governor.

The Spirit of Winter is with us, mak-
ing its presence known in many differ-
ent ways--sometimes by cheery sun-
shine and glistening snows, and sor -
times by driving winds and blinding
storms. To many people it seems to
take a delight in making bad things
worse, for rheumatism twists harder,
twinges sharper, catarrh becomes more
annoying, and tne many symptoms of
scrofula are developed and aggravated.
There is not much poetry in thi%, ut
there is truth, and it is a wonder that
more people don't get rid of these ail-
ments. The medicine that cures ihem
-Hood s Sarsaparilla-is easily obtain-
ed and there is abundant proof that its
cures are radical and permanent.

There was considerable excitement
at Panacea Springs Wednesday night
about 11 o'clock. The laundry building
caught fire from a defective flue, and
was full ablaze when discovered.
Everyoody turned out and fought
manfully, and though the main hotel
building was on fire in several places
when discovered, it was saved with lit-
tle damage.
The hotel is supplied all through
with water and to this is due alone the
fact that it is standing today. A high
wind was blowing directly toward thie
hotel at the time.,

The regular monthly meeting of th'e
City Council last night was a business t
affair from start to finish, and was at: I
tended by a full membership. Those t
present and answering to the roll t
call were: Chairman F. W. Arm- c
strong and Councilmen A. C. Spiller, i
L. M. Lively, Julius Ball, T. H. Ra'i- i
dolph, J. A. Edmondson, L C. Yaeger, i
C. W. Perkins and W. F. Quaile. I
The meeting was opened by Mr. J. T. -
Meginniss appearing before the C ,ui-
cil on behalf of a number of stall ient-
ers in the city market. He presented a
petition protesting against the market
committee granting special privileges
to L. C. Carter by renting him the two
choice stalls for $30 per month, when,
the price is $25 each. He urged that if
Mr. Carter received this reduction of
40 per cent in his rent the other rent-
ers were entitled to the same reduc-
tion. After discussing the question th
Council took a recess to enable mem,
bers to go down and see what privi-
leges had been granted Mr. Carter. Ac-
tion was postponed to be taken up u!n-
der the head of general business.
Senator A. S. Mann appeared before
the Council and made a few rema-k-,
in the interest of the Tallahassee South-
eastern Railroad Company. In asking
for terminal privileges in the city, he
stated that the company was perfectly
willing that the city take all the safe-:
guards necessary to protect itself, but:
hoped action would be taken as' soon1
as possible, as the directors were anx--
ious to go to work at once. Council-
man Edmondson made a motion that;
the matter be referred to the ordi-
nance committee, to report at a called
meeting next Wednesday night Mr.
Quaile seconded the motion, first wish-
ing it to be understood that the Coun-
cil was in favor of granting the lease
provided a suitable ordinance be drawn
up. Motion carried..
Councilman Lively, chairman of the
fire committee, made a report recom-
mending the purchase of a suitable
wagon and apparatus for the fire-owm'r
pany, at a cost of $450. On motion
Councilman Ball the report was accept-
ed and committee empowered to act. *
The market stall question was no.v
taken up and Oouncilman Lively mov-
ed that Mr. Carter's stais be restored
to original condition and be rented for,
$25 per month each. Motion was sec-
onded by Councilman Spiller, when Mr.
Lively amended by adding that the
stalls be enlarged and put in good con-
dition. Carried.
Councilman Ball moved that th?
money received from Mr. Carter be re-
funded, and that he be reimbursed for
any extra expense to whicn he may
have been put. This motion was carried.
Chairman Armstrong stated that the
Council had been invited to take part
in the capitol corner-stone laying at 12
o'clock next Tuesday. The invitation
was accepted.

RIDAY, JANiUARY 10, 1902.


_.__ F. Kim
Ther are in this State 115,00 or 120,-
0 persons subject to the payment of
-the one dollar poll tax prescribed by
law; Th"average number of persons
ayg this tax is about 45,000, leaving_
- h 'c,000 to 75,000 per annum
.Which the public schools lose from the
sure to collect these taxes. There is
-rainly no public fund which can so
ll afford to lose this or in' which the
people are more deeply interested.
.-ince no voter is among those who
4vade the payment of this poll tax, its
payment being a prerequisite to voting,
it would seem that it were only neces-
"ary to suggest some reasonable
-method of insuring the collection of it
to secure the hearty support of every
"citizen who respects his right of suft-

The following suggestions are thrown
,out in the hope that those who are in-
terested in the question will take them
under advisement and help to work out
-a plan. to save this great waste and
more evenly distribute the expense of
:improving our. schools.
The vast difference in the percentage
%of tne polls that are paid in the several
counties shows unquestionably that
;some tax collectors and assessors are
"very lax in their methods of conduct-
ing the public business entrusted to
them. It can be readily shown that
-'ome of these officials lost more for
the county, from the uncollected polls
-alone than they are paid for their ser-
vices. Certainly in such cases it is the
duty of good citizens to remedy the de-
fect by putting in office men of bust-
ness abuity who will serve the county
-with the zeal which they have for pri-
vate affairs. It will pay the citizens of
,each county to look into this matter.
But the laws for the collection of
this tax are such that the most active
and capable officers will find it expen-
sive business and often impossible to
.make the collection. There are two
classes in particular which evade the
capitation tax. One is the migratory
laborer, especially such as are employ-
*ed in turpentine and phosphate camps;.
the other, the impecunious citizen, es-
pecially the black one, who has no
pride in the privileges of the electoral
;suffrage and never has sufficient prop-
erty to make It practicable to collect
-this tax by levying on it.
To reach the first mentioned class, it
is suggested that our law be so amend-
ed that either the Collector or the as-
sessor of taxes will be empowered and
-required to go directly to the employer
%or superintendent of gangs or large
bodies of laborers and, having taken a
sworn statement of the names of all
-taxable persons employed, .to assess
-and collect the-tapitation tax then and
; there from the employer, giving Indi-
vidual receipts therefore, which the em-
]ployer will collect for from the men.
This law should be made broad and
*elastic so as to prevent evasic-. by con-
.stant changing of residence or tem-
porarny discontinuing work, and to
permit collecting directly from the men
-when that can be readily and thorough-
ly done.
After a reasonable time has been al-
lowed for every man to pay his poll
tax in the county where he holds his
citizenship, he should be liable for
such tax wherever he may be located
if he connot give evidence of having
paid it; at the same time provision
should be made for a prompt repay
sment of tax collected a second time,
.should such occur in the execution ot
the law.
To reach the great number of negroes
-who are always hanging around the
towns of the State, but from whom it is
.almost impracticable to make collec-
tion of any tax, there should be a pro.
"vision for coupling the school capital
-tion tax to the road tax, so that when
the former cannot be collected the de-
linquent can be summoned to work out
the amount on the public roads, being
liable to imprisonment for contempt in
case he refuses to heed the summons,
-an equivalent amount in money being
pild back from the road fund. The
snaking of the one dollar poll tax the
equivalent of two or three full days'

labor would insure either the prompt
payment of polls or an abundance of
laborers for the roads at a low rate,
thus benefiting both funds.
There is no possible danger to the
-white supremacy at the polls to be an-
ticipated from forcing this class of peo-
ple to pay their capitation taxes; but.
-on the other hand, if these taxes werq
.diligently collected the amount which
-would be collected from negroes alone
-would pay half the whole amount that
.is now paid for negro schools in the
State. H. E. B.

Burns, bruises and cuts are extreme-
ly painful and if neglected often result
in blood poisoning. Children are espe-
dcially liable to such mishaps because
mnot do careful. As a remedy DeWitt's
"Witch Hazel Salve is unequalled. It
draws out the fire, stops the pain, soon
heals the wound. Beware of counter-
feits. Sure cure for piles. "DeWitt's
Witch Hazel Salve cured my baby of
ecsema after two physician's gave her
. up." So writes James Mock, N. Web-
ster, Ind. "The sores were so bad she
.soiled two to five dresses a day."

Sumptuously Dined Number of Friends
at the Leon hotel Saturday.
That aggregation Of young persons
known ps the "society set" have been
having a jolly time ever since the hoi-
days tarted, aid from now until .the
social season closes there will be a con-
tinuous round of pleasures and merry
making. "Iuere have. been receptions,
card parties, dances and other amuse-
ments almost every evening. Many of
these have been on a very elaborate
scale, and all were enjoyable occasions.
One of the pleasantest events of the
season was the dinner given by Mr. D.
M. Lowry at the Leon Hotel Saturdal
last. The affair was a very select one,
only a small number of invited guests
participating,, but the fortunate few
spent an enjoyable 'evening. Mr.
Lowry, who gave the dinner, has not
been a .resident of the Capital City a
great length of time, but during his
short stay here has become quite popu-
-ar in society circles, and has made
a large number of friends. He is man-
ager of the Florida Cotton Oil Com-
pany in this city. Among the young
society people who partook of the ex-
cellent dinner and enjoyed the at-
tendant festivities were:
Misses Gertrude Chittendpn, Mary
Newton, Annie Rawls, Gussie Chitten-
den, Let|tia Rawls, Bessie Saxon, and
Messrs. Walter L. Wight, Charles M.
Ausley, I E. Crawford, R. H. Mickler,
and J. J. Logan, of Jacksonville.

Constipation and health never go to-
gether. DeWitts Little Early Risers
promote easy action of the bowels
without 'distress. "I have been trou-
bled with costiveness nine years," says
J. 0. Greene, Depauw, Ind. "I have
tried many remedies, but Little Early
Risers give best results."

Mr. Haile Gives Oyster Dinner to the
County Commissioners.

The Board of County Commissioners
held their regular monthly session at
the court house Tuesday morning. At
the conclusion of the business, Mr.
George liaile, court house janitor, in-
vited the honorable board to a sumptu-
ous oyster dinner, spread in their hon-
or. The commissioners also invited a
few friends, and the following gentle-
men sat down to the table:
Commissioners L. C. Yager, W. J.
Johnson, E. C. Smith and W. D. Stout-
amire, ard Mr. Gilbert Hartsfield, Mr.
W. C. Cromartie, Judge R. A. Whit-
field, Circuit Clerk C. A. Bryan, County
Superintendent of Schools C. W. Ban-
nerman, Sheriff J. A. Pearce, and Mr.
J. T. Blanchard, city editor of The Tal-
The dinner, which consisted of oys-
ters, cake, and other refreshments, was
greatly enjoyed by the guests, all of
whom join in extending their best
wishes for the future success of Mr.

Gooch's Mexican Syrup has given

In Honor of Lincoln's Emancipation

The last misty, wintry night of the
old year had passed away. The morn- I
ing sun of a welcome new year shot its ]
goiuen rays above' the eastern skie3, j
and everything paid homage to. the j
glorious event. Soon the fields, the t
roads, the streets, revealed moving t
bodies of men. Here and there along
the streets a card hanging on the door
of postoeffie, banks and public build-
ings informed us of the birth of a most
glorious holiday. During the previous
week large bills had been circulated by
the committee on the Emancipation
Proclamation, announcing that it waa
to be celebrated at or near Bethel Bap-
tist church, this city.
By 10 o'clock that morning the col-
ored citizens began gathering from
every quarter of the city and section of
the county, to celebrate one of the most
memorable declarations ever proclaim-
ed to the American people. Within
three hours several hundred persons
had congregated at the above church.
Rev. J. B. Hankerson, pastor, opened
the exercises by singing "My Country,
Tis of Thee," which was followed by
prayer by Rev. Turner, of the C. M. E.
Miss Irene Baker read Lincoln's
emancipation proclamation in an ad-
mirable manner, which soothed the
weary souls of her hearers. She was
greeted with loud applause. After
singing a beautiful selection, Mrs. F. J.
Johnson, the organist, furnished excel-
lent music for the occasion. Prof. J.
G. Riley delivered an oration on the
line of emancipation. Mr. Riley is a
,deep thinker, always prepared to inter
est his readers on any subject that may
be assigned him. He pictured the many

A quartette was bea l _wLerft
by students from the |heMna
and Industrial College, the conclu-
sion of. which Prof. Howar4 Instructor
in the department of artistic painting,
addressed the audience. He called the
attention of hiq hearers to the intem-
perate use of tobacco, whiskey and
other injurious stimulants, and said
such depravity destroyed the moral,
mental and physical force of human
liberty, and was greatly deplored. A
beautiful duet was charmingly render-
ed by Misses FitzgUes and Long.
Dr. A. S. Jerry, one of the chief pro-
moters of the celebration, and who
was to have delivered an address, was
prevented from doing so by pressing
business. An emancipation committee
was organized and will complete ar-
rangements for the celebration of Lin-
coln's emancipation proclamation (de-
livered Jan. 1, 1863,) on the first of Jan-
uary each year.

Mr. Howard had the Orlando display

recent study of the subject, E. Metch-
nikoff has found that pigment atrophy
of the hair is due to action of phago-
cytes, or white blood corpuscles, which
absorb the pigment and transfer it else-
where. In whitening-hair and its roots
the phagocytes filled with pigment are
unmerous, while they gradually disap-
pear as the process progresses, and are
almost completely absent in perfectly
white hair.

BALTIMOwa, Md., March ~3o 1901.
Gewtleen .*-Being entirely cured of deafness, thanks to your treatment, I will now give you
a full history of my case, to he used at your discretion.
About five years ago my right car began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my hearing in this ear entirely.
I underwent a ,eatment for catarrb, for three months, without any success, consulted a .nm-
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 in a New York paper, and ordered your treat-
ment. After I had used itonly a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased. and
to-day, after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear has-been entirely restored. I thank you
heartily and beg to remain Very truly yours.

xes, "we killed a bear." How often
do we find people trying to climb to
the topmost round, in the ladder of
fame over the shoulders of their su-
periors. How often do we find people
claiming honor and glory for some-
thing they could not perform them-
selves! Oftentimes men achieve great-
ness when the work was performed by
some person in their employ. These
little great men furnish the capital, L''e

There are men in America today oc-

strut proudly before the gaze of their
blinded admirers, forget the one :o
whom honor is due. The glory be-
longs to the strutting peacock. He
will not even admit that "we killed a

stricken world, "I did it with my little
hatchet! Here, you common people,
you scum of the earth, look! This is
ME! I did it wi th my little hatchet!
Ain't I a great man."
There may be some satisfaction in
attaining greatness through such
methods. There may be glory in sail-
ing under false colors, but the honor-
able man is willing to give credit where
credit is due. He knows within his
own heart that there are "other peb-
bles on the beach," and he is ready to
share honors with others. If his w'fe
"kills a bear" he does not say "w-"
did it. The truly honorable man does
not "cut a dash" in borrowed plumes.
He may not be as "brilliant" as the
man who "killed the bear." His career
does not resemble the flash of a meteor.
He plods along in the even tenor of his
way and gets there on his own merits.

the public that "we killed a bear."

States to make a similar proclamation

Woman is often referred to by man
as "doubling his joys and halving his
sorrows." That may be complimentary
but it would seem to be rather hard on
the'woman. For in plain terms it
means that where things are going well
with the man his wife makes theDngo
better. But when things are going ill
wittrhlmr he expects the w1'toa''hare
half his burden. And there's -more
truth than poetry in this presentation
of masculine selfishness. Men don't ap-
preciate the fact that the strain of
motherhood alone is a burden bigger
than1all the loaos that rest upon male
shoulders. They see the wife grow
thin, pale, nervous and worn without
a thought that she is over-burdened.
Among the pleasant letters received by
Dr. Pierce are those from husbands
who have waked up before it was too
late to the crushing burdens laid upon
the wife, and in the search for help
have found in Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription a restorative which has
given back to the mother the health of
the maiden and the maiden's happi
ness. "Favorite Prescription" always
helps, and almost always cures. It has
perfectly cured ninety-eight cases out
of every hundred women who hav2
used it when afflicted with diseases pe-
culiar to women.

Mr. W. C. Cromartie, of Meridian,
was in Tallahassee Tuesday, on busi-
ness, and while here renewed his sub-
scription to The Tallahasseean. Mr.
Cromartie conducts an 80 acre farm
near Meridian, and raises good crops
of pease, corn, cotton, cane, potatoes,
vegetables, etc. For several years he
has been cultivating Sumatra tobacco,
meeting with excellent success. His
crop is not raised under sheds, hence
does not bring as high price as is cam-
manded for tobacco grown otherwise.
Sumatra tobacco is grown under sheds
for the purple e of producing the fin-at
wrappers, and sells for from 50 cents to
$1.50 per pound. Sun-raised tobacco is
used mostly for fillers, and does not
bring such high prices.
Last" year, with comparatively no
fertilizer, Mr. Cromartie produced
about 700 pounds to the acre. He says
however, with plenty of fertilizer and
proper attention, the soil of Leon coun-

We wish to call your attention to a
few important facts relative to Blood
and Skin diseases. It has been demon-
strated by the most scientific physi-
cians that all skin diseases are caused
from a paracite or germ in the skin.
Doctors heretofore have never been
able to find a medicine sufficiently
strong to kill or destroy the germ
without corroding or ruining the flesh.
Hancock's Liquid Sulphur is the only
known remedy that will kill the germ
and permanently cure'all skin dis-
eases. As a blood purifier Hancock's
liquid Sulphur has no equal. For sale

tI, FIMDAY, JANUARY 10, 1902.


A EfiDeulDura menal t

* Ao~aTHE FARMERS. Department.|

A great number of school houses in
#t0 United States lack the surround-
lags that make for comfort and con-
tantment. City school grounds are of-
tea so small, says the Government Bul-
ln No. 134, that planting is out of the
question, though where space permits,
It Is not uncommon to find them care-
fulWy laid out, with a good arrange-
aent of grass plots, flower beds and
Naade trees. In towns and villages,
also, may be pointed out many exam-
Ples showing great care and attention.
la the country, however, an improved
school ground is rarely found. In hlilly,
forest regions they. are often denuded
of soil and full of stones and stumps,
and on the prairies many are well nigh
as bare, bleak and inhospitable as
when they formed a part of the unset-
tled plain.
This lack of- improvement is not due
to causes evident at first sight It is
not on account of poverty, for it is al-
most as common in wealthy as in less
prosperous communities. It is not due
to lack of appreciation of the elements
of beauty, for where homes are sur-
rounded with trees, grass and flowers,
the school ground is likely to be en-
tirely neglected. Neither is it due to
indifference in educational affairs, for
none are more cordial in their support
of school systems and institutions of
.learning than the American people.
The cause seems to lie rather in the
failure, to see the importance of corn
fort and beauty in education and to
realize the interest of the American
youth in the natural world around him.
Some err so far as to mistrust the wil-
lingness of the boys and girls to allow
trees and shrubs to grow unmolested
on the school ground. This is a fla-
grant misinterpretation of the spirit of
childhood. With a better understand-
ing of youthful nature, one sees an
easily awakened regard for things
beautiful, and a disposition to respect
and help all well directed activities for
the improvement of school life.
The strongest reason for school
ground planting is for the comfort of
the teacher and pupils who occupy the
building from seven to nine months
each year. A school house so situated
as wholly to lack protection from in-
clement- weather often subjects its oc-
cupants to distressing conditions. Dur-
ing winter gales there is an increasing
demand for fuel, which, though sup-
plied, often does not suffice to keep the
building warm. The teacher is then put
to test contriving methods by which no
pupil shall endure more than his share
of cold, and by which to maintain, the
usual good order during study hours,
and provide for indoor recreations at
the rest periods. With the temperature
hovering below the freezing point dur-
ing a howling blizzard, one has but to
enter a country school room to appre-
ciate its discomforts and see its need
of protection.
The -winds of spring are almost an
trying as those of winter, and in sum-
mer the sun beats down with uncheck-
ed violence. Thus each season is ac-
companied oy ill effects for those who
must'attend school where the grounds
are exposed. The question naturally
arises: May not these conditions be
remedied? To this the answer cer-
tainly. should be that they may. They
have been remedied in some instances,
and can be in others. It is not too
much to say that in nine cases out of
ten exposed school grounds can be
rendered comfortable by trees planted

every appeal to the finer nature of the
child means better men and women
and a more thrifty, prosperous and at-
tractive community. Americans are
justly proud of their school system,
and should be willing to support the
schools not only with money, but with
time and labor.
"I was troubled for about seven
years with my stomach and in bed half
my time," says E. Demick, Somerville,
Ind. "I spent. about $1,000 and never
could get anything to help me until I
tried Kodol Dyspepsia Cure. I have
taken a few bottles and am entirely
well." You don't live by what you eat,
but by what you digest and assimilate.
If your stomach doesn't digest your
food you are really starving. Kodol
Dyspepsia Cure does the stomach's
work by digesting the food. You don't
have to diet. Eat all you want. Ko-
dol Dyspepsia Cure cures all stomach
The farmers of Leon county, if they
are strictly up-to-date, will not fail to
devote their attention to the cultiva-
tion of watermelons, cantaloupes, small
fruits and vegetables. There is big
money in the business, and now that
advantages in the way of freight rates
have been assured, we hope that all
who have lands will give this matter
the consideration it deserves.
There is no better soil in the country
for raising cantaloupes and watermel-
ons, both of which attain their highest
state of perfection here. The person
who is fortunate enough to be first on
the Northern markets with these
"fruits of the Southern soil," command
almost fabulous prices for their pro-
ducts. Even those who are not first,
make a big profit, and it does seem that
more attention would be given to their
Strawberries can also be profitably
grown. Under favorable conditions
and intelligent cultivation the average
yield should be not less than 3,000
quarts per acre. At .15c pe rquart the
sum realized would be $450 per acre,
which, after all the expenses of cultiva-
tion have been paid, will leave a nice
margin of profit.
Beans, English peas, tomatoes, let-
tuce, egg-plant, and other vegetables,
produce abundantly, and present an

"Some time ago my daughter caught
a severe cold. She complained of pains
in her chest and had a bad cough. 1
gave her Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
according to directions and in two days
she was well and able to go to school.
I have used this remedy in my family
for the past seven years and have nev-
er known it to fail," says James Pren-
dergast, merchant, Annato Bay, Ja-
maica, West India Islands. The pains
in the chest indicated an approaching
attack of pneumonia, which in this in-
stance Was undoubtedly warded off by
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It coun-
teracts any tendency of a cold toward
pneumonia. Sold by Wight & Bro. and

In 18a8 the value of West Virginia
poultry and eggs sold was $2,42,198, or
6 per cent more than the value of all
the sheep; 66 per cent more than the
value of all tne swine; enough to pur-
chase five times all the commercial fer-
tilizers used, or 9 per cent. more than
the value of the entire yield of oats,
rye, buckwheat and potatoes. No field
crOp, with the exception of wheat, corn
and hay, equalled in value the poultry
The total amount of taxes collected
in the State was $1,131,331, which the
poultry product would pay twice and
have enough left to buy all the sheep
over one year old in the State. The
value of the egg production alone was
more than twice enough to support the
State university, normal schools, asy-
lums and penal institutions.
In the year 1898 the value of the
poultry product in Wood county alone
was over $120,000, and that of Kana-
wha over $100,000. During the same
year the estimated value of the egg
production in Wood county was $62,-
835, and that of Jackson $45,000. By
way of comparison, it is interesting to
note that in the county of Wood the
total value of all sheep and swine was
only $90,000, the product of which was
much less., In Kanawha county the
same contrast is evident, the sheep and
swine being valued at $95,000, and the
poultry product at $100,000. The sheep
and swine represent a large capital in-
vested. The poultry represents a small
capital, div ded among all classes ana
the most productive of all investments.
The people of Greenbrier county have
$40,000 taxable capital invested in sheep
and swine, lnd from this they cannot
realize a return above the amount in-
vested. In 9the same county they own
130,000 chickens, worth about $26,000,
and from t4ese is received a product
worth $75,q00, or three times the
amount invsted.

"I'm going ove to see Mrs. Morgan,"

"What for?"
"I wish to go," was replied.
"Well, I don't wish you to go," said
lisde, in a very ec1ded way.
"I can't help thjt, Simon. Mary, I'm

There were considerable odds against

,A muttering something that his wife
did aot hear, and -she went on her way.
A hurried walk brought her to the
wretched home of the poor drunkard,
whose wife met her at the door.
"How is Mary?" was the visitor's
earnest inquiry.
Mrs. Morgan tried to answer the
question; but, though her lips moved.
Io sounds issued therefrom.
Mrs. Slade pressed her hands tightly
is both of hers; and then passed in
with her to the room where the child

Slade that death had already laid his
icy fingers upon her brow.
"How are you, dear?" she asked,, as
she bent over and kissed her.
"Better, I than* you!" replied Mary,
ia a low whispers
Then she fixed her eyes upon her
*mother's face with a look of inquiry.
"What is it, love?"
"Hasn't father waked up yet?"
"No, dear."
"Won't he wake up soon?"
"He's sleeping very soundly. I
wouldn't like to disturb him."
"Oh, no; don't disturb him. r thought
maybe ne was awake."
And the child's lids drooped languid-
ly, until the long lashes lay close
against her cheeks.
There was silence for a little while,
and then Mrs. Morgan said in a half-
whisper to Mrs. Slade:
"Oh, we've had such a dreadful time
with poor Joe. He got in that terrible
way again last night. I had to go for
Doctor Green and leave him all alone.
When I came back, he was ip bed with
Mary; and she, dear child, had her
arms around his neck, and was trying
to comfort him; and Would you believe
it, he went off to sleep, and slept in
that way for a long time. The doctor
came, and when he saw how it was,
left some medicine for him, and went
away. I was in such hopes that he
would sleep it all off. But about twelve
o'clock he started up, and. sprung out
of bed, with an awful scream. -.Poor
Mary! she too had fallen asleep. The
try wakened her, and frightened her
dreadfully. She's been getting worse
Sever since, Mrs. Slade.
"Just as he wa. rushing out of the
room, I caught hi n by the arm, and it
took all my stren th to hold him.
"'Father! father !' Mary called after
him as soon as sle was awake enough
to understand w at was the matter.

"'Here, father! Here!' Mary calle
to him, and he sprung into bed again
while she gathered her arms about hil
tightly, saying in a low, soothing voice
"Nothing can harm you here, father.'

Don't you think so, mother?"
"Yes, dear. It does seem along time.
But it is best for, him. He'll be better
when he wakes."
Mary closed her eyes, wearily. How
deathly white was her face--how sunk-
en her eyes-how sharply contracted
her features!
"I've given her up, Mrs. Slade," said
Mrs. Morgan, in a low, rough, choking
whisper, as she leaned nearer to her
friend. "I've given her up! The worst
is over; but, oh! it seemed as though
my heart would break in the struggle.
Dear child! In all the darkness of my
way, she has helped and comforted me.
Without her, it would have been the
blackness of darkness."
"Father! father!" The voice of Ult-
tle Mary broke out with a startling
Mrs. Morgan turned to the bed, and
laying her hand on Mary's arm said:
"He's still sound asleep, dear."
"No, he isn't, motner. I heard him
move. Won't you go in and see if he
is awake?"
In order to satisfy the child, 'her
mother, left tne room. To her sur-
prise, she met the eyes of her husband
as she entered the chamber where he
lay. He looked at her calmly.
"What does Mary want with me?"
he asked.
"She wishes to see you. She's called
you so many times. Shall I. bring her
in here?"
"No. I will get up and dress my-

nest voice of Mary was heard calling.
"I'm coming, dear," answered Mor-
"Come quick, father, won't you?"
"Yes, love." And Morgan got up ana
dressed himself, but with unsteady
hands, and every sign of nervous pros-
tration. In a little while, with the as-
sistance of his wife, he was ready, and
supported by her, came tottering into
the room where Mary was lying.
"Oh, father! "-What a light broke
over her countenance. "I've been wait-
ing for you so long. I thought you
were never going to wake up. Kiss
me, father."
"What can I do for you, Mary?" ask-
ed Morgan, tenderly, as he laid his
face down upon the pillow beside her.
"Nothing, father. I don't wish for
anything. I only wanted to see you.'
"I'm here, now, love."
"Dear father!" How earnestly, yet
tenderly she spoke, laying her small
hand upon his face. "You've always
been so good to me, father."
"Oh, no. I've never been good to
anybody," sobbed the weak, broken-
spirited man, as he raised himself
from the pillow.
How deeply touched was Mrs. Slade,
as she sat, the silent witness of this
"You haven't been good to yourself,
father; but you've always been good to
"Don't, Mary! don't say anything
about that," interrupted Morgan. "Say
that I've been very bad-very wicked.
Oh, Mary, dear! I only wish that I was
as good as you are; I'd like to die, then,
and go right away from this evil world.
I wisa there was no liquor to drink-
no taverns-no bar-rooms. Oh, dear;
Oh, dear! I wish I was dead."
And the weak, trembling, half-pal-
sied man laid his face again upon the
pillow beside his child, and sobbed
What an oppressive silence reigned
for a time through the room!
"Father." The stillness was broken
by Mary. Her voice was clear an
even. 'Father, I want to tell you
"What is it, Mary?"
"There'll be nobody to go for you,
father." The child's lips now quivered
and tears filled into her eyes.
; "Don't talk about that, Mary. I'm
not going out in the evening any more
Until you get well. Don't you remem-
her I promised?"
"But, father-"
"What, dear?"
"I'm going away to leave you and
t mother."
"Oh, no-no--no, Mary! Don't say
I that" The poor man's voice was brok-
en. "Don't say that! We can't let
you go, dear."
"God has called." The child's voice

had a solemn tone, and her eyes turned

gan, hiding his face in his hands

and stay with you always, and be your i
angel. Don't you think he will, dear i
But Mrs. Morgan's heart was too full. c
She did not even try to answer, but 4
sat, with streaming eyes, gazing upon t
her child's face.
"Father, I dreamed something about I
you, while I slept today." Mary again I
turned to her father.
"What was it, dear?"
"I thought it was night, and that I
was still sick. You promised not to go
out until I was well. But you did go
out; and I thought you went over to
Mr. Slade's tavern. When I knew this,
I felt as strong as when I was well,
and got up and dressed myself, and
started out after you. But I hadn't
gone far, before I met Mr. Slade's great 1
bull-dog, Nero, and he growled at me
so dreadfully that I was frightened
and ran back home. Then I started
again, and went away around by Mr.
Mason's. But there was Nero in the
road, and this time he caught my dress
in his mouth and tore a great piece out
of the skirt. I ran back again, and he
chased me all the way home. Just as
I got to the door, I looked around, and
there was Mr. Slade, setting Nero on
me. As soon as I saw Mr. Slade,
thought he looked at me very wicked,
I lost all my fear, and turning around,
I walked past Nero, who showed his
teeth, and growled as fiercely as ever,
but didn't touch me. Then Mr. Slade
tried to stop me. But I didn't mind
him, and kept right on, until I came to
the tavern, and there you stood in the
door. And you were dressed so nice.
You had on a new hat and a new coat;
and your boots were new, and polished
like Judge Hammond's. I said: "0
father! is this you?' And you then
took me up in your arms and kissed
me, and said: "Yes, Mary, I am your
real father. Not old Joe Morgan-but
Mr. Morgan now.' It seemed all so
strange, that I looked into the bar
room to see who was there. But it
wasn't a bar room any longer; but a
store full of goods. The sign of the
"Sickle and Sheaf' was taken down, and
over the door I now read your name,
father. Oh! I was so glad, that I
awoke-and then I cried all to myself,
for it was only a dream."
The last words were said very
mournfully, and with a drooping of lit-
tle Mary's lids, until the tear-gemmed
lashes lay close upon her cheeks. An-
other period of deep silence followed
-for the oppressed listeners gave no
utterance to what was in their hearts.
Feeling was too strong for speech.
Nearly five minutes glided away, and
then Mary whispered the name of her
father, but without opening her eyes.
Morgan answered, and bent down
his ear.
"You will only have mother left,"
she said-"only mother. And she cries
so much when you are away."
"I won't leave her, Mary, only when
I go to work," said Morgan, whispering
back to the child. "And I'll *never go
out at night any more."
"Yes; you promised me that."
"And I1l promise more."
"What, father?"'
"Never to go into a tavern again."
"No, never! And I'll promise still
"Never to drink a drop of liquor as
long as I live."
"Oh, father! dear, dear father!" And
with a cry of joy Mary started up an-
flung herself upon his breast. Morgan
drew his arms tightly around her, and
sat for a long time, with his lips press-
ed to her cheek-while she lay against
Shis bosom as still as death. As death "
Yes; for when the father unclasped his
arms, the spirit of his child was with
the angels of the resurrecelon!
