beauty of tangled thickets and bam-
mooks that fringe either short of cow-
Len branch on the oast side of the St.
John* river, about fifteen miles from
Palatka. The thickets that Uline this
stream have been memorable as the
seen where hundreds of der and wild
turkeys have shut their eyes in death at
the crack of the hunters' rifle. The
bordering country. is settled up a class
of happy and contented citizens, whose
hospitality is only limited by the wants
of the stranger who seeks food or shel-
ter. Reared amid nature's matchless
beauties, thrilled from childhood with
the music of her blended melodies, that
her men should be Democrats and her
women lovely, is a sequence that is just
as natural as that water will find its way
to a dairyman's milk can. The follow.
ing well known sportsmen made up the
company of visitors: Louis Bohlen,
Hamp. Moody, W. Thigpen, D. Futch,
ki.H. Futch. and Mr. Futch the veteran
hunter and father of D.and H. H. No
better selection could be made out of
the entire citizenship of the county for
a pleasant outing,and a successful hunt.
Every one except Mr. Bohlen aie chil-
dren of the woods-mruen whose lounge
training qualified them as expert guides
to the fountains of fun and the abiding
place of game. The first evening was
spent in one of those old-fashioned
country dances. The fair ladies of the
community were present, the tuneful
strings of the violin awoke the richest
melodies. When the old tune of "Fish-
ers hoinpipe" and "I am swinging in
the lane" was struck up, no one seemed
4o enter so fully into the enjoyment of
the dance as young Mr. Bohlen. He
appeared like a duke from the lands of
the distant Rhine. The ball room
glowed with a scene of personal beauty
outrivaling in its wealth of natural love.
lineBs the Parisian balls,where artificial
aid is invoked to overcome the defect
of nature.
The next day the hunters entered the
silent stillness of the distant thickets.
The trained dogs were turned loose.
Soon the crushing sounds of the bush
mingled with the wild yelp of the dogs,
and were followed by the shots of the
deadly guna. The sounds th.t broke
ever the thicket were a fant wbhisper of
the sounds that shook the heighta.of El

was once suggested to the company to

For the Children.
What a wonderful thing a dof is 1 I
am led to this expression by something
I have seen of late. I have been to the
dok show. It was really a dog. pony,
and monkey show. It was said theie
were a hundred animals in all. More
dogs than all the rest, and more ponies
than monkeys. They were all well
trained. It i called the 'GentryShow,'
but W. W. Weaver is the ring master,
and directs the performance. He has
been with the dogs for seventeen years.
He has worked with them day and
night, for there are always new tricks

to be brought out. Kindness, and a
choice morsel, go to aid in this work ;
but there are always bad dogs as well
as had boes, aud tihe whip must be used
sometimes. All are caught their duties
and are under complete subjection. A
happier and more contented set of dogs
you never saw. About sixty of them
sat around the ring on pedestals about
two feet high, each on his own separate
neat. They were as still and quit as a
pa' cel of boys and gli s in school during
school time. They were called by name
to come into the ring to perform. Ouly
those called came, the others remained
in their places. When theperformance
was over,the mater would dismiss them
with patting, and say now bols take
)our seats. They would then quickly,
each to his own place, spring up, and
poce himself as demurely as any one
could. One of the amusing tricks they
performed was "Mr. and Mrs. Snyder
out airing their baby." Twogood-sized
dogs were dressed in clothes like men
and women, and their baby (a very
small dog) dressed in baby clothes. Mr.
,*uyder and his wife came into the ring,
walking uprightly on their hind feet,
Mr. Soycer was pushing a baby cab,
with the little dog tm it as baby.. They
were brought chairs to sit in, and for a
time Mr. Snvder held and caressed the

Faith in orange growing as a financial

of late to restore confidence in It. A
good growth was made last year which
the frost In the winter nipped but did

At no time for years have the trees put

season. Fine, healthy trees are the
rule, a a drive through the country

the winter and the bloom held. In
many groves there has been a good June
bloom on trees that did not bloom in

The Five Toasts.

Five prominent gt-ntlemen chanced
to meet in Loe Angelos, California-oue
a Russian, one a Turk, one a French,
man, one an Englishman, and the other
an American. They soon became fast
friend., and finally a e'zampeane sup.
per was proposed, at which each one
was to give a toast to his native coun-
try, the one giving the best toast to be
at no expense for the wine. Here are
the toasts given:
Russian-"Here's to the stars and
bars of Russia, that were never pulled
Turk-"Here's to the moons of Tur-
key, whose wings were never clipped."
Frenchman-"Here's to the cook of
France, whose feathers were never
American-"Ilere's to the stars and
stripes of the U united States of America,
that never trailed in defeat."
Englishman-"Here's to the rooipin'
an I roarin' lion of Great Britain, that
tore down the stars and bars of Russia,
clipped the wings of turkey, picked the
feathers of France, and ran like hell
from the stars and stripes of thO Unit d
States of America."
