The address of Attorney-General La-
mar at the capitol corner-stone laying
has already. borne fruit In his men-
tion of eminent men who had helped
to make )Florida history, Mr. Lamar
said: "No picture niarks the presence
there (in the State capitol) of Richard
K. Call, but his name and fame are
part of this State's history."
Although Zichard K. Call was one of
Florida's most eminent sons, and gov-
ernor of the State from 1835 to 1844,
he is one of the great men whose pic-
ture does not adorn the executive office
in Florida's capitol. This deficiency
has been supplied, however, as will be
seen by the following correspondence
between Secretary of State Crawford
and Governor Jennings:

It is my pleasure, on behalf of the

posed in him by his old commander,.

NINETY-EIGHT PER CENT.
There is a fascination about big
profits to a business man. But the con-
servative and cautious trader prefers
to have the lesse- per cent f interest
and the larger per cent. of safety in his
investments. There is no business
man who would not consider it a sound
proposition to invest in an enterprise
in which absolute loss was impossible
and which offered ninety-eight chances
in a hundred of a rich profit "The sta-

Office of D. H. Hardy,
Secretary of State,
Austin, Tex., Nov. 21, 1900.
I have found Dr. Mbffett's TE-.'H-
INA a splendid remedy and aid for my
teething children. When my oldest boy
was a teething child, every succeeding
day warned us that wf would inevita-
bly lose him. Happened upon TEETH-
INA, and began at once administering
it to him, and his improvement was
marked in 24 hours, and from that day
on he recuperated. I have constantly
kept it and used it since with my chil-
dren, and have taken; great pleasure
in sounding its praise to all mothers
of young children. I found it invalu-
able even after the teething period was
passed. MRS. I. H. HARDY..

THE HOME GOLD CURE.
An Ingenious Treatment oy Which
Drunkards are Being Cured Daily
in Spite of Themselves.
No Noxious Doses. No Weakening of
the Nerves. A Pleasant and Posi-
tive Cure for the Liquor Habit.
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 drunkars nto sober, in-
dustrious and upright men.
WIVES CRE YOUR HUSBANDS !
CHILDREN CURE YOUR FATHERS!
This remedy is in no sense a nostrum,
but is a specific for this disease only,
and is so skillfully devised and pre-
pared that it is thoroughly soluble and
pleasant to the taste, so that it can be
given in a cup 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 ditenniH4led
drinking of their own free will. DO

This was a new and Interesting turn,

the coming season-this year. Never
before have we been in position to com-
pete with other sections in this im-
portant industry, but this year, thanks
to changed conditions, we will have the
same freight rates, the same facilities,
and can make the crop a profitable one.
Indeed, we now have the advantage
over many who have made it profitable
in the past. Our land are far superior,
our climate just as good, and what
others have to pay out for excessive
fertilizing our people can salt down as
Think over the matter seriously, til-
lers of the soil, and see that a good
crop is put in. Now is the time to act.
The early melons and cantaloupes
carry off the big prices, while late ones
come in for only a small margin of
Even a small margin at the season a
cantaloupe or melon crop is marketed,
as every one knows, is a God-send to
the planter. It comes right at a time
when one dollar in cash is worth about
two hundred cents to him.
Leon's great drawback has always
been taat she raised none of these
crops. Now that she has the freight
rates added to the best soil on earth
if she does not carry off the palm it
will be the fault of the farmers.
WAYCROSS AND TALLAHASSEE.
Waycross, Ga., is to have a $100,ov0
cotton mill. The: people raised $50,-
000 for the enterprise. That's push.
They realized, however, that this sum
would be insufficient, and induced
Northern capitalists to take a like
amount. That's business. The site
has been selected, and work on the
buildings will begin in a short time.
Waycross is an up-to-date city, and
the above shows what can be accom-
plished when the ISeople work in har-
mony. Why, the average Waycrossite
imagines that the earth revolves about
the "Magic City." He believes in Way-
cross, talks about Waycross, and booms
Waycorss. Question man, woman, boy
or girl from that town, and the con-
versation will be something like this:
"What is the most important city in
the United States?"
"What is the principal city of Geo-
rgia, and where is it located?"
"Waycross, in Ware county. Why,
man, the Magic City is the hub of the
universe. It is the bright particular
star about which everything revolves."
"Where do you want to go to when
* "To Waycross, of course."
To further illustrate the devotion
of the Waycrossite to his hustling city
-that town is "dry!"-as dry as a chip,
and the people never drink-except
when they visit a wet to0a, or have a
jug sent in as "merchandise." On.one
occasion a prominent citizen of Way-
cross went to Brunswick on business.
It was Saturday, and being very thirsty
he took several drinks of "soda water."
The stuff flew to his head, which was
quite natural. Friends took him to his
room in the hotel, and when he awoxe
next morning his head felt about like
a hogshead. To brace him up necessi-
tated the unloading of several large
schooners of "soda water."
Not being used to so much liquid re-
freshments, the prominent citizen
soon became so "tired" he couldn't
walk straight While wandering about
the city, the man passed a church.
Now, if there is anything on earth that
the average Waycrossite believes in it
is attending church and sitting in the
amen corner. IDring the sermon the
man dozed off, only to be aroused by
the minister's peroration depicting the
beauties of heaven.
- Straightening up with a yawn,
the man said: "Zat's so, my friend;
every blamed word of it (hie). I've
been there (hie). Just came from zat
place morningn, and (hie) can vouch
for every word you say (hie)."
At this juncture a man in the same
pew pulled him down, and as he drop-
ped limply into his seat he mumbled:
"It's so; every (hie) word of it (hie).
Just came from Waycross morningn,
an' know what I'm talking about,"
with which he dropped off into peace-
This digression is simply for the pur-
pose of "painting a moral and adorn-
ing a tale." In order to *make any
town grow, the people must work to-
gether. They must never miss an op-
portunity to sing the praises of their
town and community, and advertise its
facilities and advantages. They must
always keep their town before the pub-
.1 & Iaft...a at a..
her fingers. As a result her growth
has not been commensurate with'he?
The Tallahasseean is glad to note,
however, that the people generally now
show a disposition to get together and
work for the best interests of the city.
when they do this, let personal likes
and dishices be relegated to the rear,
and put their shoulders to the wheel,
the Capital City will take such wonder-
ful strides forward that she will soon
be the leading city of Florida. Let's
make the experiment.

1. Where the title of an act clearly
though briefly expressed the subject
matter of legislation co trained in the
body of the act, and there is nothing
in the act which is not properly con-
nected with such subject matter, the
requirement of section t6, article III,
constitution of 1885, that the subject of
an act of the Legislature be briefly ex-
pressed in the title is concplied with.
2. Courts should not resort to critical
or technical construction+ of the lan-
guage of the title of an; act, in order
to exclude parts of the bydy of the act
from its purview as being in violation
of the constitutional retirement that
the subject of an act' be briefly express-
ed in the title, nor should the title be
held insufficient to emblace parts of
the body of the act unless the question
be free from doubt.

1891, is sufficient to sustain the pro-
visions in the body of the act authoriz-

One of the greatest foes with which
every family has to contend is our
changeable climate. To protect the
family from colds and coughs is always
a serious problem, and often impossible.
Sooner or later it is the inevitable fate
of every one to catch cold. Care in
avoiding exposure and the use of proper
clothing will protect from the frequency
and perhaps the severity of colds, but
with the greatest of precautions they
will come. This is a settled fact of
Especially is this true during the
stormy and unsettled weather of early
winter. Everybody must expect to be
caught somewhere or somehow.
Perhaps it will be wet feet, or cold
draught, or damp clothes, or may be too
elose confinement in hot rooms and then
going out into the cold carelessly, or it
tween the two, or that the last was
clearly intended to prescribe the only
rule which should govern the case pro-
vided for, or that it revises the subject
matter of the former.
- 5. The provisions of chapter 4069,
acts of 1891, relating to the recovery of
double damages and attorneys' fees for
live stock killed by the engines and
cars of railroad companies failing to
fnece their tracks as therein required,
were not repealed by section 9, chapter
4189, acts of 1893.
6. The Supreme Court has no juris-
diction to entertain a motion for the
allowance of a reasonable attorney fee
for services rendered in behalf of a de-
fendant in error in said court filed in a
cause pending in said court upon writ
of error from a judgement of a Circuit
Court rendered in favor of defendant
in error against plaintiff in error for
double damages, costs and attorneys'
fees under chapter 4069, acts 1891.
Judgment affirmed; motion for al-
lowance of attorneys' fees denied.

able to find a medicine sufficiently
strong to kill or destroy the germ
without corroding or ruining the flesh.

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

I THUNK A LIE.
Ssed to think when I was young,
And my heart was free from guile,
That there was grief in every tear
And Joy in every smile:
That friendship was not all a cheat
An4 love could never die-
But thinking now of what I thunk,
I think I thunk a lie.
I1 used to think about myself,
And think that I would be
A governor or a president,
Or a general, like Lee;
But I have waited long in vain,
Whilst years rolled slowly by,
And thinking now of what I thunk,
I think I thunk a lie.
I used to think the ladies were
All sweetnesses combined,
That they were all God's last and best
Of perfectness refined;
That they were not half pads and
But angels from on high-
But thinking now of what I thunk,
I think I thunk a lie.
The preachers, too, I used to think,
Were not like other men-
They were not tempted of the flesh,
And therefore could not sin;
But since I've traveled 'round a bit,
I've watched them on the sly,
And thinking now of what I thunk,.
I think I thunt a lie.
The honest tiller of the soil,
When marketing his crop
Takes pains to put the ripe and best
Always upon the top;
I used to think those honest men,
Would never cheat, nor try-
But thinking now of what I thunk,
I think I thunk a lie.
The editors, too, a lordly set,
Who live on milk and honey,
They've nothing else on earth to do,
But write, and rake in'money;
Leastwise, that way I used to think,
But now it makes me sigh
To think about the way I thunk,
And think I thunk a lie.
What noble men the doctors are!
I used to think they came
From heaven, or some heavenly land,
And worked for love or fame;
That they could cure all human ills,
And never let us die- -
But thinking now of what I thuntz,
I thins I thunk a lie.
The lawyers, too, I used to think.-
0 God, forgive the thought- I
That their convictions of the rigct
Could not by knaves be bought
That they would not a client rob'
Nor sell him on the sly-
But thinking now of what I thun$,
I think I thunk a lie.
The dry goods men are honest, to1,
They swear they sell at cost,
I used to think they told tire truth,
And all their profits lost;
I thought a yard was full three leet-
Don't ask my reason why- i
Bat thinking now of what I thun]6
I think I thunk a lie.
The hotel clerk, I used to think,
Would try to be polite,
Would answer questions put to h m,
And treat a stranger right;
That rather than he'd play the ass
The clerk would sooner die- ,
But thinking now of what I thunkl
I think I thunk a lie. .
And then I thought that Rooseveltl
Who took McKinley's shoes,
Would have L-,e backbone and the grit
To give us all our dues;
But old Booker T. and Samp n's
Still make the Southland sigh,
And thinking now of what I thun ,
I think I thunk a lie;
I used to think elections were
For the public will to voice, |
And not a politicians' game,
To give the cliques their choice;
That patriotism played its part, |
Tho' stills were never dry-
But thinking now of what I thunk,
I think I think a lie.
I used to think the public schools
Would fill a long-felt need,
By teaching all our boys and girls
How to spell and read;
But red tape and incompetence, [
' Is everywhere the cry,
And when I think of what I thunki
I think I thunk a lie.
The niggers, too, I used to think,
If once they were set free,
Would make good, honest citizens
Like white folks used to be;
But they have wandered far frpm
The chickens still roost high,
And thinking now of what I thunkj
I think I thunk a lie.
I used to think the town police,
With all his blue and brass,
Would never sleep upon his post,
Nor let a criminal pass;
That on the gamblers they would keep
An ever watchful eyes- '
But thinking now of what I thunk,
I think I thunk a lie.
THE DAIRY BUSINESS.
The luxuriant pastures of Leon coun-
ty furnish ample grazing for thousands
of cattle. This should be a pointer
for farmer and stock raisers. There
is a constantly increasing demand for
good butter. It is not condned to one
section, but the demand exists all over
the land. Dairymen near Tallahassee
cannot make enough butter tbo ill or-
ders, and if every farmer in the county
should embark in the the dairy busi-
ness they would still be unable to glut
This is an industry that promi-es
great results to Leon county. It is one
that should be pushed. Already there
are more fine cattle here than in any
other county ih the State. But there is
room for thousands more. Land is
cheap, there is an abundance of -x)d
water, the climate is mild, and all con-
ditions are favorable for successful
The up-to-date farmer whb stock.a
his farm with a herd of full-bloods and
graded Jerseys, with a thoroughbred,
registered bull, is bound to make a
success of it if he instills a proper
amount of energy and intelligence into
the business. Of course he must use
the moss economic methods and mod-
ern apparatus. for butter making.
Cleanliness must be a feature of his en-
terprise. In other words, he must give
it the proper careand attention. When
this becomes known there will always
be a demand ior his butter.
"Some time ago' my daughter caught
a severe cold. She complained of pains
in her chest and -had a bad coulgh. 1
gave her Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
according to directions and in two days
she was well a;d 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
all medicine dealers.
A SPLENDID OPPORTUNITY.
The Tallahasseean would like to im-
press upon the farmers of Leon county
and especially those adjacent to the
railroads, the importance of the culti-
vation of watermelons, cantaloupes.
small fruits and vegetables. Better
soil for this branch of farming cannot
be found anywhere in Florida. This
has been successfully demonstrated
upon more than one occasion, and the
assurance of low freight rates to the
Northern markets will be a guarantee
of big profits.
Strawberries of large size and ex-
cellent flavor yield abundantly, as do
other kinds of berries. The best qual-
ity of vegetables do exceedingly well,
while watermelons and cantaloupes
grow to perfection. The early gard-
ener is tne one who reaps the reward.
He gets into the market at a time when
prices are high, and finds ready pur-
chasers. Heretofore the farmers of
Leon and adjoining counties have been
unable to compete with other sections,
on account of high freight rates. This
drawback has been overcome by the
Seaboard Air Line guaranteeing the
same rates on perishable goods as has
been given Monticello in the past. This
will be a stimuluS, and we expect im-
mense shipments to be made from this
point during the! coming spring and
REMARKABLE CURE Or' CROUP.
A Little Boy's Life Saved.
I have a few words to say regarding
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. It sav-
ed my little boy's life and I feel that I
cannot praise it enough. I bought a
bottle of it from A. E. Steere, of Good-
win, S. D., and when I got home with
it the poor baby could hardly breathe.
I gave the medicine as directed every
ten minutes until he "threw up" and
then I thought sure he was going I.
cnoke to death. We had to pull the
phlegm out of his mouth in great long
strings. I am positive that if I had not
got that bottle of cough medicine, my
boy would not be on earth today.-Joel

the State Fair Association, says:
"Considering the generally expressed
desire for a State fair td be held again
this year, I deem it best* to get a posi-
tive expression from the people and the
county commissioners of all the codn-
ties in the State. Having seen the re-
sults of a fair they can ipow determine
whether or not they w4nt to partici-

association of considerable labor and
expense, as there will be, or should be,
no need of visiting the various counties
to urge them to make exhibits, and I
wish you to ask for this expression.
"The boards of county commission-
ers will meet the first Monday in Feb-

now and the meeting of the boards to
get the views of the representative citi-
zens of each county, and I wish each
board of county commissioners to say
whether or not their county will make
an exhibit. I hope there will be an ex-
pression from each county-either yes
or no. This will give our association
a positive guide. As the State fair is

A WORTHY SUCCESSOR.
Something New Under
All Doctors have tried to cure CA-
A ARRH by the use of powders, acid
gases, inhalers and drugs in paste
iorm. Their powders dry up the mu-
cuous membranes causing them to
crack open and bleed. The powerful
acids used in the inhalers have en-
tirely eaten away the same mem-
branes that their makers have aimed,
to cure, while pastes and ointments
cannot reach the disease. An old and
experienced practitioner who has for
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 at once, but permanently
cures CATARRH, by removing the
cause, stopping the discharges and cur-
ing all inflnmmntion. It is the only
remedy known to science hat actually
reaches the afflicted parts. This won-
derful remedy is known as "SNUF-
FLES, the GUARANTEED CATARRH
CURE," and is sold at the extremely
low price of one dollar, each package
containing internal and external me1-
icine sufficient for a full month's treat-
ment and everything necessary to its
"SNUFFLES" is the only perfect

CARRABELLE'S FINE SHOWING.
Editor The Tallahasseean: In perus-
ing Captain Judson's report to the
chief of engineers for the year ending
June 30, 1901, page 1769, I find that the
collector of the port for Apalachicola
customs district gives the total amount
of business for the year at $324,034.00.
The deputy collector at the sub-port of
Carrabelle reports the business of his
office to the collector at Apalachicola,
and for the year it was the handsome
sum of $263,549.00, which deducted
from the collector's total, leaves $60,-
485.00 as tne actual business done at
Apalachicola through the custom
Don't that look very much as if Car-
rabelle was a port? During the same
year the two reports show there were
forty-two vessels entered at the Apa-
lachicola custom house, and at Carra-
belle there were fifty-eight. A further
indication that Carrabelle is a port.
From page 1769 I quote following:
"Fees and dues paid to customs house
at Apalachicola, Fla., during fiscal year
ending June 30, 1901, $856.36."
On page 1767 is the following:
"Amount of fees and dues paid to cus-
tom house for Carrabelle, Fla., during
fiscal year ending June 30, 1901, $1,-
Looks somewhat like doing business
for a port.
It has been rumored that parties in-
terested have said if a board of pilot
commissioners was appointed for Car-
rabelle it would split the Democratic

were evidences of change; but not for
the better. Then the room was as
sweet and clean as it could be; the
sheets and pillow-cases as white as
snow, and the furniture shining with
polish. Now all was dusty and dingy,
:the air foul, and the bed linen scarcely 1
whiter than tow. No curtain made
softer the light as it came through the
window; nor would the shutters en-
tirely keep out the glare, for several of
the slats were broken. A feeling of
'disgust came over me, at the close
smell and foul appearance of every-
thing; so, after washing my hands and
face, and brushing the dust from my
clothes, I went down stairs. The sit-
ting room was scarcely more attractive.
than the chamber; so I went out upon
the porch and took a chair. Several ,
loungers were here: hearty, strong-
looking, but lazy fellows, who, if they j
had anything to do, liked idling better
tnan working. One of them leaned
his chair back against the wall of the
house, and was swinging his legs with I
a half circular motion, and humming
"Old Folks at 'Home." Another sat
astride of a cnair, with his face turned
toward, and his chin resting upon, the
back. He was in too lazy a condition
of body and mind for motion or sing-
ing: A third had slidden down in his
chair, until he sat on his back, while
his feet were elevated above his head,
and rested against one of the pillars
that supported the porch; while a
fourth lay stretched out on a bench,
sleeping, his hat over his face to pro-
tect him from buzzing and biting flies.
Though all but the sleeping man
eyed me inquisitively, as I took my
place among them, not one changed his
position. The rolling of eye-balls cost
but little exertion; and with that effort
they were contented.
"Hallo! who's that?" one of these
loungers suddenly exclaimed, as a man
went swiftly by in a light sulky, and
he started up, and gazed down the
road, seeking to penetrate the cloud of
dust which the fleet rider had swept up
with hoofs and wheels.
"I didn't see." The sleeping man
aroused himself, rubbed his eyes, and
gazed along the road.
"Who was it, Matthew?" The Irish
bar-keeper now stood in the door.
"Willy Hammond," was answered by
"Indeed! Is that his new three hun-
dred dollar horse?"
"My! but he's a screamer!"

"Hardly," said one of the menlaugh-
ing. "I uon't think anything in crea-

with a perfect rush."
"Doesont he. Well; you may say
what you please of him, he's as good-
hearted a fellow as ever walked; and
generous to a fault."
"His old dad will agree with you in
the last remark," Matthew.
"No doubt of that, for he has to
stand the bills," was answered.
"Yes, whether he will or no, for I
rather dinkk Willy has, somehow or
other, got the upper hand of him."
"In what way?"
"It's Hammond & Son :over at the
mill and distillery."
"I know; but what of that?"
"Willy was made the business man
--ostensibly-in order, as the old man
thought, to get him to feel the respon-
sibility of the new position, and thus
tame him down."
"Tame him down! 01, dear! It

"Hush!" came from the lips of Mat-
thew. "There she is now."
I looked up, and saw at a short dis-
tance from the house, and approaching,
a young lady, in whose sweet, modest
face, I at once recognized Flora Slade.
Five years had developed her into a
beautiful woman. In her alone, of all
that appertained to Simon Slade. there
was no deterioration. Her eyes were
as mild and pure as when first I met
her at gentle sixteen, and her father
said "My daughter," with such a ming-
ling of pride and affection in his tonb.
She passed near where I was sitting,
and entered the house. A closer view
showed me some marks of thought and
suffering; but they only he ghtened
the attraction of her face. tailed
not to observe the air of respect with
which all returned her slight iod and
smile of recognition.
"She's a nice girl, and no mistake-
the flower of the flock," was said as
soon as she passed into the hcuse.
"Too good for Willy Hamniond, in
my opinion," said Matthew. Clever
and generous as people call him."
"Just my opinion," was responded.
"She's as pure and good, almost, as an
angel; and he?-I can tell you; what-
he's not the clean thing. He inows a
little too much of the world--on its
bad side, I mean."
The appearance of Slade put an end
to this conversation. A second obser-
vation of his person and countenance
did not remove the first unfavorable
Impression. His face had grown de-
cidedly bad in expression, as well as
gross and sensual. The odor: of his
breath, as he took a chair close to
where I was sitting, was that !of one
who drank habitually and freely; and
the red, swimming eyes evidenced, too
surely, a rapid progress toward the sad
condition of a confirmed inebriate.
There was, too, a certain thickness of
speech that gave another corrobbrating
sign of evil progress. i
"Have youi seen anything of' Frank
this afternoon?" he inquired oa Mat-
thew, after we had passed a few words.
"Nothing," was the bar-keepei's ans-
"I saw him with Tom Wilkins as I
came over," said one of the men who
was sitting in the porch.

voice. "He doesn't seem very choice in

"Yes. They both had fowling-pieces.

This information disturbed Slade a
good deal. After muttering to himself
a little while, he started up and went
into the house. |
" "And I could have told him a little
more, had I been so inclined," said the
individual who mentioned the fact that
Frank was with Tom Wilkins.
"What more?" inquired Matthew.
"There was a buggy in the case, and
a champagne basket. What the latter
contained you can easily guess."
"I don't know anything about the
buggy; but if 'Lightfoot' doesn't sink
in value a hundred dollars or so before
sundown, call me a false prophet,,"
"Oh, no," said Matthew, incredulous-
ly. "Prank Wouldn't do an outrageous
