A NIGHT ALARM.
Worse than an alarm of fire at night
is the brassy cough of croup, which
sounds like the children's death knell
and it means death unless something
is done quickly. Foley's Honey and
Tar never fails to give instant relief
and quickly cures the worst forms of
croup. Mrs. P. L. Cordier, of Manning-
ton, Ky., writes: "My three-year-old
girl had a severe case of croup; the
doctor said she could n6t live. I got a
bottle of Foley's Honey and Tar, the
first dose gave quick relief and save
her life." Refuse substitutes. Wight &
TELLING HIS TROUBLES.
Centerville, Feb. 26.-Last week a
gentleman of color named Leonard
Hughes was tried in Justice J. B. Con-
ner's court "for something concerning
of a hog." During the trial one of the
-witnesses who had eaten fresh pork at
the house of the accused the day after
the hog disappeared, testified that he
asked Hughes' wife where they got the
pork. She promptly replied, "If you
like it, eat it. Some things which are
good to eat are not good to talk about."
Hughes was convicted.
Last year this man was furnished
with a good horse, for which he paid
r.ot a cent. He had accounts with two
cf our generous merchants, who sup-
plied him liberally with goods. For
none of these did he pay. He had a real
good time riding over the country.
This year the hard-hearted horse deal-
er of Thomasville took away his horse,
and the Leon county merchants were
late in sending their delivery wagons
with groceries to his door, and the fel-
low could not stand such a letting
down. His honesty was too severely
The horse dealers and merchants
should have more consideration for the

An orld colored man who lives uear
this piaie thinks he has been greatly
wronged by a near neighbor. Recently
he came to make complaint to Justice
Conner.. As he talked he became more

intense..earnestness: "Judge, I bin a-
waitin' for de Lord to bring, dat niggar

A THOUSAND DOLLARS THROWN
Mr. V. W. Baker, of Plainview, Neb.,
writes: ,"My wife had lung trouble for
over fifteen years. We tried a number
of doctors and spent over a thousand
dollars .without any relief. She was

many years of study and research, an
absolute specific for the most aggra-

Acute, Chronic, Muscular, Sciatic or In-

TO THE STATE CONVENTION OF
COUNTY SCHOOL OFFICERS.
In the school law of Florida there is
provision made for the teaching of the
effects of alcohol and other narcotics on
the human system in the mandate to
county boards to require elementary
physiology "taught in every school in
the county." Now, the superintendent,
being the executive officer of the board,
is practically the power behind the
throne, and can bring to pass whatever
he wills to be uone.
Therefore, the Woman's Temperance
Union of Florida petitions you to help
the county boards to a true and proper
interpretation of the law, to see that
its intent is complied with, viz.: that
every child of school age is taught the
truth about these arch enemies of
health and prosperity.
The teachings of science are avail-
able to every- teacher and every pupil,

A NONDESCRIPT EGG.t
Mr. Frank Willis, stenographer and
law student in the law office of IJudge
George P. Raney, brought to thij office
r litw days ago the greatest cu -osity
we ever saw in the shape of a h n egg,
or eggs, in fact, for there were wo of
them. They were fresh played, vered
with a shell nothing more than 4 tissue
in thickness and as soft and fle ble as
a piece of well dressed sheepskin, and
The most peculiar feature of these
eggs, however, is the fact that they are
-inseparably joined together by a small
tube a little larger than a lead pencil.
This tube was a half or three-quarters
of an inch long, and it is filled with
the same white substance that sfr-
rounds the yolk in all'eggs, completely
joining the two. I
Unfortunately the hen in gettbig off
tt e nest punctured the thin covering of
one of the eggs and through ttls the
si stance of both is slowly oozi out,
destroying the curiosity. Those who
doubt this story can see the egg Jn our
desk if they will call before it dries up

MORE OF THE SAME.
The Tallahasseean is proud to see
that our people have not gone daft to
the extent that we had supposed upon
the subject of politics, six months in
advance of the opening of the real
campaign. On every hand we have
been effusively congratulated upon the
editorial in our last issue, under the
caption, "Plenty of Time." This is a
-source of much gratification to us for
many reasons. Outside of the fact that
there may be still another or other can-
didates for the Congressional honors,
it would be a dangerous-aye, an ex-
ceelingly dangerous-state of affairs,
w e it possible for any man whose
profession is and has always been poli-
tics to force a personal campaign near-
ly a year in advance of the action of his
party, and then calmly fold his hands
and say, "This is my place. I was in
tne race first. You should have come
out first, or at least when I did. As
you did not, you must now stay out."
Such a state of affairs would have
the effect of perpetuating in office a
set of men who, while drawing salaries
for one position would do nothing but
watch the turn of political tides, and
complacently guide. their political barks
into every harbor that hove in sight,
if it promised better emoluments than
the one of which they were already
masters. There must be a limit to
men's ambition, else one success would
bring on a mania for another in such
rapid succession that the duties of
office would soon be lost sight of in the
scramble for personal advancement by
those holding political positions.
If Democracy means anything it
means that ail men are equal. That
one candidate has no vested rights over
another, unless his ability to better rep-
resent his people than an opponent
elevates him to a vantage ground. That
is the only superior right any man has
under our system of selecting represen-
tatives. To substantiate this reason-
ing we only have to call the reader's
attention to the popular sentiment
which has for years existed in this
State in favor of primaries. It was
claimed that the convention system
permitted the politicians to secure
pledges enough to control them, and
thus defeat the popular will. This be-
lief was so strong that the people
through instructed representation at
the last State convention abolished the
Why was-this done? Obviously that
every member of the party, irrespec-
tive of station or calling in life, should
have the privilege of going to the polls
and voting for-the mn j .l4 oQile. If
the professional politician is to be per-
mitted to go around among the unsus-
pecting a'year in advance and secure
pledges before the party managers have
opened the campaign, and the voters
are to consider this trap a binding obli-
gation, have we been bettered by the
change? Would that not defeat the ob-
ject of the primary at fl i.ery out-
You, dear reader, will be told the
other fellow had the same privilege, if
you happen to be one of the pledged,
and in holy horror they will magnify
toe solemnity of your act The Talla-
hasseean asserts that when you elect a
man to office, you do so with the expec-
tation that he will stay in his office and
attend to his duties. You do not ex-
pect him to be continuously setting
traps for your next vote. If a man en-
ters into an obligation through any
kind of sharp practice it is not binding
upon him. He has a right to recall his
promise at any time it may be made
manifest that deceit has been used to
secure the promise.
Another important thing to be taken
into consideration is: A private indi-
vidual, a poor man, without a large
official salary, cannot carry on a per-
sonal campaign for a year or more. It
costs too much money. Because a man
is too poor to do this, may it be practic-
ally said that he shall not aspire for
office? Some of the best men we ever
had in office were poor men. Many of
our best men today are poor-in fact,
nearly all our best official timber is
composed of poor men. Shall their am-
bitions be throttled by men who are al-
ready drawing big salaries from tre
public treasury, enabling them to carry
on a personal campaign of a year's du-
ration-or more? The Tallahasseean
thinks the answer of every one of its
readers will be NO.
And that they will so express them-
selves at the polls.
THE STATE FAIR.
The people of Tallahassee and Leon
county have an opportunity to secure
the State Fair, if they will arouse
themselves to the importance of the
enterprise. It will require probably
ten or twelve thousand dollars to do
held'in the State Capital They would
get every cent of it back, and more too.
In, what way? Well, there would be
from 3,000 to 10,000 visitors in the city
every day. These vast crowds would
have to be fed and sheltered. Provis-
ions would be needed and every grocery
in the city would be taxed to its ut-
most to supply the demands.
Not only this, but large quantities of
corn, hay, vegetables and other sup-
plies would be required to feed the peo-
ple and the stock, and farmers for
miles around would find a market for
their surplus produce. Every class of
people would be benefited. 'Laborers
would necessarily be given employ-
ment, while the thousands of dollars
turned loose in the city would prove
We know ot no other enterprise that
would bring greater returns.for the in-
vestment, not only from an immediate
pecuniary standpoint, but from its af-
ter effects. Thousands of visitors would
flock to the State Capital to attend a
fair, who would not visit one in an-
other city. The reason for this is ob-
vious. From a historical point of view
Tallahassee is interesting. People
have read of the place, and many want
to see it. The fair would give them an
opportunity to visit the most pictur-
esque capital in the South, and at the
same time witness a display of the
wonderful possibilities of the soil of
the Land of Flowers. They would
come, and see, and be conquered. As a
result the thousands of acres of fertile
lands now lying idle in this part of
Florida would be opened up by a class
of very desirable settlers. This would
greatly enhance the value of land, and
property owners would reap the bene-
Tallahassee wants the fair and
should have it. Valdosta paid $12,000
and promises ten per cent, of the profits.
for the Georgia State Fair. Are we any
less enterprising than our plucky little
Georgia neighbor? No! and the people
should get together and make a deter--
mined fight to get the Florida State
Fair. We need it in our business.
As a starter, The Tallahasseean sug-
gests that the county commissioners at
tneir next meeting appropriate at least
$1,000 for this purpose. Then let the
city council make a similar appropria-
tion. Upon such a nucleus the citizens
could go to work with a will and raise
the balance. Let us make the effort.
HON. J. M. BRYAN RETIRES.
It is with regret that we state that
we are authorized by Hon. J. M. Bryan
to anonunce that on account of falling
health he will not be a candidate for
re-election as a member of the Rail-
road Commission. His name, there-
fore, will not be presented for this of-
rice to. the people in the coming pri-
mary. In taking this course he is actu-
ated by a desire to clear the way for
those gentlemen who have been -ug-
gested as candidates for this office, as
also for those who may be hereafter
so suggested. Tne term of Hon. H. E.
Day, chairman of the Commimion, also
expires with that of Mr. Bryan. In
retiring from the field Mr. Bryan
wishes it distinctly understood that he
deos so without prejudice to Mr. Day,
whose re-election is earnestly desired
by Mr. Bryan, the latter! being in the
best possible position to know the
value of Mr. Day's services upon the
Commission, and what a loss to that
body it would be to be deprived of Mr.
Day's ripe experience and mature judg-
We heartily agree with Mr. Bryan
in his endorsement of Mr. Day, niot
only on account of that gentleman'q
unusual qualifications for the high ot-
flee ne has successfully filled, but also
because it would be unwise in the ex-
treme to put more than one new man
at a time on the Commission. The pub-
lic interest would be best conserved bj
always keeping two old members on
the Commission. We can then be sure
of a settled policy and a conservative
Mr. Bryan's retirement raises a point
concerning the Commission that calls
for serious consideration and ought to
be made a popular issue in this cam-
paign. It is one that vitally effects the
very existence of the Commission. The
constitutional amendment passed at
the session of 1897, ratified at the polls
in 1898,,and carried into law at the ses-
sion of 1899, provides that "the Legis-
lature may clothe any railroad commis-
sion with judicial powers." The word
"may" is ambiguous, in that it seems
to leave it to the option of the Legisla-
ture whether or no to make this consti-
tutional clause operative. The conse-
quence is that every session of the Leg-
islature has seen and will see the intro-
duction of a bill to abolish the Commis-

Jackson. "I am scalding myself."

the general, "don't you see that I want

The lady refrained from making any
further suggestions as to her distin-
guished guest's comfort.
What We Most Remember.
Memory is for the most part "a trivial
fond record" of the affairs of everyday
life, and our intense desire not to lose
the remembrance of these unimportant
everyday matters is one of the greatest
testimonies to the predominance of
happiness over unhappiness in the
world. Do we not feel sorry from our
hearts for any one who has lost such
an Infinitely precious possession with-
out even wondering whether or no
there was anything in their past lives
wortf recollecting? After all, how few
are the hours which any of us would
blot out of our lives! Those perhaps
during which we have witnessed or
suffered acute physical or mental pain,

Hon. Frank Adams, as Hamilton coun-
ty's senator, he has not only served
his people efficiently, faithfully and

with the greater problems of state-
craft, coupled with his attention to the
smaller details of the duties of the of-
fice, he has been of signal service to
his people, and gave to our county a
reputation for intelligence and politi-
cal sagacity which she never possessed
Feeling that the retirement of Mr.
Adams would really be a public loss to
the people of our county, a News re-
porter interviewed Mr. Adams one -Jay
this week as to whether he would stand
for re-election to the State Senate.
In reply to our interrogatories he
said that, public life resulted in finan-
cial loss to him, but notwithstanding
this he fully recognized the duty he
owed to the people among whom he
was born and reared, among whom he
lived, and among whom he expected
to die; that he felt deeply grateful to
them for the honors bestowed upon
him and for the confidence they had
reposed in him and if they wished him
to serve another term in the State Sen-
ate they had but to command and he
was ready to obey.
We feel sure that our people will
command; that they are not ready at
this particular juncture to resign the
duties of so great and responsible an
office to the hands of a novice; and we,
therefore, take pleasure in announcing
the name of Hon. Frank Adams, as a
candidate for re-election from Florida's
Thirtieth Senatorial district.-Jasper

When the craze against mental arith-
metic as a separate and independent
study swept over the country a few
years ago and weak dilutions of prac-
tical arithmetic were advanced as all
sufficient for the intellectual training
of boys and girls in number work,
Kansas City adhered steadfastly to
mental arithmetic as the very best sub-
ject for developing the habit of logical
and connected thought that had been
introduced into the common school
course. The experiment tried in so
many localities did not prove success-
ftul, and now the pendulum is swinging
backward to the rational teaching of
this subject. So far nothing has yet
been found that cultivates the habit
of reliant, independent thought so well
as the solution of problems in a stout
mental arithmetic. Mental arithmetic
carries with it a degree of exactness
and completeness unknown in informa-
tion or culture subjects. The habit of
wandering around and picking up bits
of information here and there, has no
place in the study of mental arithmetic.
In fact, arithmetic is about the only
subject that children pursue in the
common schools that can be said to
eliminate- extraneous matter. The
grammar and language books are full
of quirks, quibbles and contradictions.
Only a small portion of geography,
comparatively, is settled definitely, the
element of unstable equilibrium being
largely predominant. The best authori-
ties differ in regard to the spelling and
pronunciation of many words in out
language, and all the physical sciences
depend upon atoms, energies, molecu-
lar motion, microbes, plasma, work,
etc.-terms used to cover ignorance for
the lack of definite knowledge. The
only common ground upon which no
disputes can possibly arise after the
conditions are clearly apprehended, be-
longs clearly enough to mental arith-
metic, considered in relation to the
common branches of our schools. In
placing third high estimate on mental
arithmetic, I do not undervalue the cul-
ture and information studies. But ev-
ery mind not influenced by prejudice or
ignorance will admit that these studies,
while interesting and entertaining, do
not foster that high degree of intel-
lectual attention necessitating the
holding of every condition of the ques-
tion in the mind, then deducing the
right conclusion from what is given.
Mental arithmetic requires data, argu-
ment, conclusion in each problem. In
this respect mental arithmetic has no
rival in the common branches.

As to the relative merits of mental
and practical arithmetic, no compari-
son is here instituted except in the way
of conclusion. Had I to decide upon
choosing one and rejecting the other,
I would take the mental every time in
preference to practical as being more
important and more helpful to the
child. For if he has mastered a good
mental arithmetic, such as Brook's or
Stoddard's, he will have no difficulty
in handling the practical easily, but the
reverse is not necessarily true. A crit-
ical knowledge of the mental paves the
way for the easy and successful mas-
tery of the more advanced arithmetic
as well as equipping the mind well for
the study of algeura.
It is assume in the presentation
that mental arithmetic as such is re-
ferred to, and not half-way-figured-out
arithmetic. I refer to the high think-

"When Willy was eighteen-he was,
then reading law-I think I never saw
a young man of fairer promise. As I
have often heard it remarked of him,
he did not appear to have a single fault.
But he had a dangerous gift-rare con-
versational powers, united with great
urbanity of manner. Every one who
made his acquaintance became charm-
ea with his society; and ne soon found
himself surrounded by a circle of young
men, some of whom were not the best
companions he might have chosen.
Still, his own pure instincts and honor-
able principles were his safeguard; and
I never have believed that any social
allurements would have drawn him
away from the right path, if this ac-
cursed tavern had not been opened by
"There was a tavern here before the
'Sickle and Sheaf' was opened?" said I.
"Gh, yes. But it was badly kept,
and the bar room visitors were of the
lowest class. No respectable young
man in Cedarville would have been
.seen there. It offered no temptations
to one moving in Willy's circle. But
the opening of the 'Sickle and Sheaf'
formed a new era. Judge Hammond-
himself not the purest man in the
world, I'm afraid-gave his counten-
ance to the establishment, and talked
of Simon Slade as an enterprising man
who ought to be encouraged. Judge
Lyman and other men of position in
Cedarville followed his bad example;
and the bar room of the 'Sickle and
Sheaf' was at once voted respectable.
At all times of the day and evening
you could see the flower of our young
men going in and out, sitting in front
of the bar room, or talking hand-and
glove with the landlord, who. from a
Worthy miller, regarded as well enough
in his place, was suddenly elevated into
a man of importance, whom the best in
the village were delighted to honor.
"In the beginning, Willy went with
the tide, and, in an incredibly short
period, was acquiring a fondness for
drink that startled and alarmed his
friends. In going in through Slade's
open door, he entered the downward
way, and has been moving onward with
fleet footsteps ever since. The fiery'
poison inflamed his mind, at the same
time that it dimmed his noble perecp-
tions. Fondness for mere pleasure fol-
lowed, and this led him to various sen-
sual indulgences, and exciting modes of
passing the time. Every one liked him
-he was so' free, so companionable and
so generous-and almost every one en-
couraged, rather than repressed, his
dangerous proclivities. Even his father,
for a time, treated the matter lightly,
as only the first flush of young life.
'I comenced sowing, my wild oats at
quite as early an age," I have heard him
say. 'He'll cool off, and do well enough.
Never fear.' But his mother was in a
state of painful alarm from the begin-
ning. .Her truer instincts, made doubly
acute by her yearning love, perceived
the imminent danger, and in all possi-
ble ways did she seek to lure him from
the path in which he was moving at o30
rapid a pace. Willy was always very
mitted to spread his net in the open

he effect of all this upon Mrs.
Hammond has been painful in the ex-
treme. We can only dimly imagine
tne terrible suffering through which
she has passed. Her present abera-
tion was first visible after a long period
of sleeplessness, occasioned by distress
of mind. During the whole of two
weeks, I am told, sle did not close her
eyes; the most of that time walking
the floor of her chamber, and weeping.
Powerful anodynes, frequently repeat-
ed, at length brought relief. But, when
she awoke from a prolonged period of
unconsciousness, the brightness of her
reason was gone. Since then, she has
never been clearly conscious of. what
was passing around her, and well for
her, I have sometimes thought it was,
for even obscurity of intellenct is a
blessing in her case. Ah, me! I always
get the heart-ache, when I think of
"Did not this event startle the young
man from his fatal dream, if I may so
call his mad infatuation?" I asked.
"No. He loved his mother, and was
deeply afflicted by the calamity; but it
seemed as if he could not stop. Some
terrible necessity appeared to be im-
pelling him onward. If he formed good
resolutions-and I doubt not that he
did-they were blown away like threads
of gossamer the moment he came with-
in the sphere of old associations. His
way to the mill was by the 'Sickle and
Sheaf,' and it was not easy for him to
pass there without being drawn into
the bar, either by his own desire for
drink or through the invitation of some
pleasant companion who was lounging
in front of the tavern."
"There may have been something
even more -impelling than his love of
drink," haid I.
I related, briefly, the occurrences of
the preceding night.
"I feared-nay, I was certain-that
he was in the toils of this man! And
yet your confirmation of the fact
startles and confounds me," said he,
moving about his office in a disturbed
manner. "If my mind has questioned
and doubted in regard to young Ham-
mond, it questions and doubts no long-
er. The word 'mystery' is not now
written over the door of his habitation.

Forty, a multiple of four by ten. is
one of the sacred numbers. The pro-
bation of our first parents in the garden
of Eden is supposed to have been 40
years. The rain fell at the deluge 4C

days of embalming the dead were 40.
Solomon's temple was 40 cubfts long.
In it were ten layers, each four cubits
long and containing 40 baths.
Moses was 40 years old when he fled
into the land of Midian. where he
dwelt 40 years. He was on Mount
Sinai 40 days and 40 nights. The Is-
raelites wandered in the wilderness 40
years. The Saviour fasted 40 days and
nights before entering upon public life.
