a. m., at the residnce of has brother-
in-law, Mr. M. J Murphy, In this city,
at which place he had been quite sick
for some time. Mr. Hazel was asufferer

leaving Water Street depot at 12 o'clock
Elzle Bland Hazse' was born at Oranue
Mill,., in this county, on October 4th,
1961, being at the time of his death
nearly 87 years of age. He.was the only
son of John B. and Ellen F. Hazel, both
of whom survive bhim. as do also one
sister, Mrs M, J. Murphy, of this city;
two half brothers, Jos. 1. McCallum,of
Clayton, this county, and Capt. James
McCallum, of Savannah, Ga.; and one
half sister, Mrs. Richard Yelvington,
of San Mateo.
Mr. Hazel had lived at Orange Mills
all of his life,where hbe was a prosperous
farmer and stock raiser. For number
of years he had furnished the Palatka
wholesale market with fresh beef. He
was at one time a member of the Board
of County Commissioners of Putnam
County,which offie he held with credit
to himself and honor to the county.
In the death of E'zie Bland Hazel
Putnam County loses one of her best
citizens, his immedlato family a kind
and loving son and brother, and his
acquaintances and others with whom he
came in contact a warm friend. Quiet
and unassuming in his general demea-
nor, generous to a fault, and alwtae
kind and compassionate to those who
were less fortunate in life than himself,
be was loved by all who knew him, and
we heard a prominent gentleman re-
mark yesterday that if Elzie Hazel ever
had an enemy he had never heard of it.
The news of his death will cause a
deep grief throughout the county and
wherever he was known, and the be-
reaved family have the most heartfelt
sympathy of the entire county in this
dark hour of affliction.

Fourth In Palatka.
Palatka made no attempt this year at
a formal celebration or the Fourth, a
large per centage of our population havy
tog none down to Jacksonville-some
on the steamer Metamora, which was
chartered and run by the firemen, and
others by rally.
However, those who remained at
home, especially the younger portion of
them, celebra with fireworks, which
was kept up constantly through the day
and until a late hour at night.
An amusing Incident came to the no.
twice of THETixS-HiRAWLD man during
the afternoon. It was a group of
"YoUang Americans" in front'of ,iong
Wah's Chinese laundry on Front Street.

Each of the youngsters had a oeat brass
cannon mounted od wheels, and they
were firing away at the Chinaman for
dear life. When the reporter passed
they informed him that they had just
taken Sanutago, "and now" they con-
Uined in a deafening chorus, "we are
bombardisg Hong Kong."

Comptroller Reynolds has determined
upon a state tax levy for the current
year as follows :
General revenue, 3 mills
Pension tax, j mill.
Board of Health tax, j mill.
State school tax, 1 mill.
The tax levy for the past year was 6j

year to make up the deficit of over
010.000 in the accounts of C. B. Collins,
as State treasurer. That tax has been
paid by the people, henoe the reduction
this year.

because of disorders and derangement of
the delicate and important organs that are
distinuly feminine. One of the worst
effectibf troubles of this kind ls upon the
nervous system. The tortures so bravely
endured completely and effectually shatter
the nerves. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Pre.
scription is an unfailing cure for all weak-
ness and disease of the feminine organ-
ism. It makes it strong and healthy. It
allays inflammation, heals ulceration and
soothes pain. It checks exhausting drains
and tones and builds up the nerves. It
fits for wifehood and motherhood. Good
medicine dealers sell it, and have nothing

MARIETTA, Ga., Ju'y 4.
This is the Glorious Fourth, but there
has been no very elaborate celebration
of the great day in thisbl little mountain
city, for everyone who felt like cele-
brating went to Atlanta. It is only
twenty miles, and that fact retards
Marietta in many ways. If she had to
depend on herself she would have a
good many business enterprises which
she has not. When anyone wants any.
thing, "go to Atlanta."
But in point of beauty Marietta lacks
nothing. She has some handsome
churches and many beautiful homes,
and the children just swarm through,
the streets. The Baptist church is
particularly magnificent for a place of
this 8ize, being built of Georgia marble.
I have not been in it, but I am told the
interior is very beautiful. One of the
prettiest homes I have seen is that of
Mr. Brown.the son of Georgia's famous
war governor, Joe Brown. It stands
on quite an elevation in the edge of
town, and to surrounded by beautiful
trees and velvety lawns.
The national cemetery is within the
city limits, where eleven thousand
Union soldiers are said to be buried,
Some persons doubt the authenticity of
a good many of the bones, but enough

Snap hoets with a GraphophoMe.
The graphophone is to the ear what
the photographic camera is to the eye,
and more, for the graphophone catches
instantly and preserves every tint and
shade of sound. A most interesting
use of a graphophone is to make records
of your friends' voices to be preserved
for future use. You can catch the story
of youi jolly friend just as he told it, or
the favorite song of some loved one just
as she sang it, and have it reproduced
perfectly at any time, and as oftep as
you please. Besides, the graphophone
afords wonderful entertainment in the
way of re-producing the music of bands,
* orchestras, or vocal or instrumental
soloists. No investment will return so
much in pleasure as the purchase of a
graphophone. It Is the perfect talking
machine. Write for catalogue No. 30,

It is certainly an ornament to the city.
I have not been through it, so cannot
speak of the inner attractions.
The whale city was in a great excite-
ment last week over the presence and
wonderful exhibitions of the hypnotic
expert. Mr. Carroway,the mind reader,
who toured Florida last year, honored
this boarding house with his presence
Saturday night. He can undoubtedly
ask more questions than any one' I ever
met, and has an excellent memory. He
referred to his visit to Palatka and spoke
of many persons he had met there ;
complimented the genial Captain Lucas
mosi highly, and inquired if I knew the
man who "never sleeps."
One meets all varieties of humanity
in a boarding house, One man came
and engaged board for himself, his wife
and his sister, but he was here seVeral
days before the feminine contingent
arrived. After each meal he would pull
out a piece of paper and poor all the
scraps from his plate into it and stuff it
into his pocket for his dog. The night
his wife came she was too tired to come
down to tea, so when he finished, he
filled up his glass with milk, and put a
biscuit on his plate, asking he 'always
had to carry scraps off; It it wasn't for
his dog, it was for his wife," We even
heard how she enjoyed her supper, but
she lived through it.

The problem of feeding the people of
Santiago and the'priaoners taken there,
in addition to the United States troop
under Shatter, was discumsed at a long
conference the other afternoon between
Beoretary Alger, Qaartertuaster General
Ludington and Commissary General
Eagan. It is a very serious matter and
cannot be adequately adjusted until the
war department has been acquainted
with the conditions that will exist after
the town has been tadcen. General Shat.
ter took with him supplies for six
months for about 80,000 men and ani-
mals. These, it is estimated, will last
the United States troops and their Cu.-
ban allies, the needy people of Santiago#
and the Spanish army defending the
place for three mouths, so that there is
no fear for the present of any lack of
subsistence., The supplies that accomU-
panied General Slihatfter were intended
for use in the Porto Rico as well as the
Santiago cainpaigu, and for that reason
it is intended to send additional sup-
plies to Santinuo, so that those now in
the posoeiFion of tho Aieirican forces
will not be depleted. Arrangements for
sending a great quantity of foodstuffs
to Santiango are being made by the coin-
missary gniernl and the quartermaster
generic i-miMatiu does not
propose to l-t W peeplo of Sanitiugo
suffer Ite eitv l is poauss ion of
the AsMumese; e-..
The military authorities believe that
the suffering people of the besieged city
have heard the stories 'about the abun-
dance of food supplies in the possession
of the invaders and anticipate a friendly
reception for Shafter's troops from a
great many of the reuideits. It was said
at the war department that the Spanishi
forces might find greater difficulty in
holding Santiago through the desire of
the people to have the Americaun. with
their unlimited store of provisions, gain
a quick victory and expedite the diatri-
bution of the rations.
The reports that many refugees have
taken the risk of getting through the
Spanish lines to the Atperican position
in the hope of obtaining food have con-
vinced army ficer that the news is
spreading it Santiago that the terrible
Yankees are not so terrible after all,
but have wagon loads of good things to
eat, which they intend to give to the
needy to the city. It would not surprise
officials in Washington if riots began in
Santiago over a failure of the Spauish
trees to surrender or capitulate within
Ia rsaouabei time.
The adnhnlitratibm believes that
Shafter will capture nearly all hbe eue-
ay's frces now in Santiago. The ques.
Meoa of what$ dipuition shall be made
of this great number of prisoners has
been bothering the president and Secre-
tary Alger for unme time, but they hope
to reach a definite decision soon us to
the location of a great military prison.
It is not intended to leave the prisoners
in Santiago. They will be transported
to the United States as mpidlyss possi-
ble in order to relieve the government
troops in Cuba of the neoesity of guard-
ing them.
The administration has not receded
from its decision to allow the Caban
allies to hold b.ntiago after the cam-.
pignp there is over. so that General
ihafter's ourps can participate in the
Morto Rico programnie. United States
troops will, however. be gwrrisoned at
Santiago until the lnst of the priounern
has beeu sent to this country. The war
department officials have four plucon in,
view, ahy onte of vhichi would be an
excellent location for a military prison.
They say that a storm uf protest
would probably come from the petple
of the ocEaliltes in question it publicity
were given to the fact that they are un-

lect one of these places and proceed to

I Serlees as a surgeso..
Probably the oldest man in the Unit-
ed States to volunteer hi. services in
tbp Spaitib-AAmerican war, and certain.
ly the oldest physician in the tat of
New York, is, Dr. Henry Ooumuey of
Hanoock Junction, Delamte county.
Thotigh 109 ears old, the dotoer still
makes daily calls on his patitetl, and
when the president asked for volunteer
he offered his services in the capacity
of surgeon.
The doctor says he was born in Ames-
It, of Italian parents. He has a repu-
tation of being a suoooesufl healer of
human ills, gathering all his remedies
from the woods and Ctlds in Delaware
county. He makes his professional calls
on foot, often traveling 10 or 19 miles
a day without unusual fatigue or in-
convenience. His hearing is slightly
dull, bat he read ordinary print with.
out the aid of glasse. At the time of
the enrollment for the draft in 1864 the
doctor was 75 years of age, but was
physically equal to a man of 85. The
doctor gives "right living" as the ascret
of his long life.-Exchangae

A Letter Predicting It Writton as o s
Sister From Hongkoeg.
Admiral Dewey, who was in Hong-
kong on April 18, wrote a letter to his
sister, Mrs. Mary P. Greely, in Mont-
prlivr, Vt. The letter was recently re-
ceivedil. It was the last communication
from him before his departure for the
Philippinims. Admiral Dewey said:
We are still waiting for the declara-
tion of war to begin our work here. I
have seven men-of war, all roraly for
action, 'and should war be the word I
believe we will make short work of
Spanish reign in the Philippinos. The
insurgents are ready to rise at our first
gun, and long before this reaches you
we may be matters at Manilla and other
Philippine cities. But, after ill, war is
a tirriblo thing, and I hope some'way
out of the dilemma may be found with-
out resortiug to i My health continues
good, although it is taxed to the utter-
most, and my one prayer is that I may
be able to hold out until we have fin-
ished our work. "-New York Sun.

Two new orders have been issued I
the Poetofflice Department which w
be of Interest to the general public.
One specifies thbat hereafter there w
be ho forwarding or re.mailing of mi
matter of the second, tdird and four
class unless the postage is paid in a
vance. This cover newspapers, ma
azines, periodicals, and merchandise
Heretofore these classes of mail matt
have been forwarded to persons movir
from one point to another and postal
collected when delivery was made. I
many cases this forwarded matter, u
pecially newspapers,. was refused,hen,
the government received no pay fk
the extra work. Under the new rul
people who desire this class of mail
follow them in their travels or to ne
home, will have to leave either monm
or stamps to prepay postage.
The other older refers to the questic
of private postal cards. Any person (
firm can now have their own prival
, cards provided they comply with ti
requirements of the department. Th
cards must be 31 by .'i inches In size
and of white, light gray, cream, or bu
In color. On the address side must b
printed the words "Private mailian
card, authorized iv the act of Congress
May 19, 1898 On every such card
1-cent stamo must be placed. The e
verse side of the card can be used a
the sender sees fit. This new regular
tion is more particularly in the interest
of business men, and will probably b
much used by them for advertising
purposes, as they will attract attentloi
owing to the difference in appearance
from the ordinary postal card.

was more successful than any one could
imagine at the time. The enemy was
badly routed, but we expected him to

been a wonderfully rare thing since our

The waters of Caiamelain,
And pirate Moors before It fled,
Upon the Inland main.
Up with the flag; no Hesclan band,
Nor gallant ranks of gray,
But gold aud greed and Spanish hand,
We meAb against t>-day.
A foe more subie, and more fell.
Than those of elder strife,
A compact of the powers of bell,
Against the Nation's life.
Though the formality of speech
making was dispensed with, we dis-
cussed the war, its phases, uad news.
8ome of us read aloud the account In
the Times Union and Cittien of the
heroic boys in their brave attack on the
outer fortifications at Santiago. Ban-
nerville will take the prize for pretty
babies. We are raising troops for
Uncle Sam. As the dinner hour drew
nigh, the handsome ladies of Banner.
ville were busy preparing a sumptuous
dinner. When we took our seats, we
beheld a table fairly growing beneath
the many good things our noble women
had so lavishly provided. In the after-
noon the young people Indulged in
singing a number of sonus. We had
delightful music on the organ with vio.
lin accompaniment. Ice ream and
cake was served several times, and was
emnellent. It did credit to Mrs. Miller
and the other ladles. After tea, we
had a concert at the organ. A number
of patriotic songsp were sung. When we
rode away, at 10 p. m., we left the
young folks tripping the light fantastic
toe to the strains of rnul-.lspirlng mu-
asi. Every one seemed to vie with the
other in contributing to our enjoyment.
The Fourth here will long be remem-
bered by all present.
There is one little maiden
That now I will name,
Whieh may bring what is better
Than riches or fame.
All those who will heed It
Good appetite And,
Strong norve roy cheeks
And vigor of mind.
'It will bansirdyspepeia,
Iheumatise and goat,
That tired feeling conquer,
Drive aseoah out,
And beoe lithe maxim-
