Baird to Erect Warehouse.

pany have decided to erect a large two.
story watelioUse in thie ear of their
already large building. This warehouse
will he brick and one of the most up-to.
date warehouses of thie State. yet some
people say Gainesville is not inmprovitng.

People with weak dligestionis will al-
ways le found to Inc iond uf cotldimenus,
as the te'idenllcy of these thliing is to
stimulate the glands of the stomach anil
caaise them to produce a larger supply of
digestive juice. pepper, mustard and
other like spices, stir up the liver and are
useful to people who from necessity or
other causes lead seder.tary lives. Vin-
egar dissolves the cellulose in raw veg-
etables, and thal is wihy it tastes so well
with cabbages and salads, for there Is Ino
better judge than the palate of what is
good for the stomach Thle oil is added
because it protects the btoumach from the
biting acid.-Exchange.

on,,the part of thie teimters, urged prob-
metly Iby a desire to pileatie over-ulainliitioia
Ipatrots to rish the cihildre.n through the

fail to develop withliu then the power
which must be developed before they can
succeed in the more intricate studies of
the high school and college. It shall be
my constant endeavor to overcome this
evil satd to promote thoroughness in all
school work. My knowledge and expeo
rience of the advantages and disadvanta-
ges, and needs of all grades of our schools,
will enable me to juilge as to the fitness
and adaptability of teachers for the -Avri-
onas positions, and I shasll endeavor to me-
cure the very best t)asible teachers for
every grade of work anil teachers suited
to the partictilar work to which they are
assigned. Ini other aword I shall try to
secure teachers for clitols rather than
schools for teachers.
Now in regard to the financial condi-
tion of the cotmity There is hanging
over us n general debt of approximately
fath.o, and a special district debt of a
little more than S39,oom, making a total
of soomethimig more tmat t$77,ooo. 1 shall
favor economy and the payment of thins
debt at the earliest |possible moment.
which will not necessitate an undue
shortening of the school term. I.do not
believe in robbinmt the children of thec
present generation for the benefit of the
next, as a Smo,ooo sinking fund from the
regular income must necessarily do. I
shall endeavor to economizA as far as poe-
sible by reducing the incidental and ad
ministration expenses instead of short-
ening the shobool term. I shall separate
and keep separate as far as possible the
indebtedness of the special tax districts
from that of the county at large, urging
the payment of the special tax district
debt by the districts for which the
debt was made., and favoring the payj-
ment of a certain per cent of the Iadabt--
ednesa of each special tax district by the
district each year.
I favor a xeeeogable sinking fand from

The small British losses are ac-
counted for by the fact that the Tibet-
ans were so huddled together that the
majority were unable to either use
their words or to fire. The swords
men in the front rank could not real
the alkhs, who had fixed bayonets.
while the men in the middle' oft Lh.
mob could not reach the enemy but
many of them probably killed each
other In the excitement. Thg scenes
recalled old-time fights In cook pits,
the grim. determined faces of thie Tib-
etanti lighted with savagery expres-
lag contem4it for the 81khs, ,-whom
they outnumbered six or seven to one.
When the L'Hassa general beard the
first shot, the Tibetans w:th ,wild
shouts draw their words, Bred their
matchlocks and surged forward.
Those of the Tibetang who tried to
climb the wall were met with a terri-
ble magazine rifle fire, but they did
not falter, those behind springing over
the heaps of dead and continuing to
fight until rfddled with bullets.
When Anally the Tibetans retired
they tramped back slowly and' stead-
lly,- though followed by a hall of bil
lets. A mountain battery was brought
Into action and tore tho retreating
lines with shrapnel. A terrible trail
of dead and dying marked the line of
march. At length the last wounded,
limping-Tibetan turned the point somo
400 yards from -the scene of the grim
tragedy where the best of the Tibetaq
army had perished.

understood the result will be a .1e-

al for the authority for its statement
t telegrams were sent members of
the court of inquiry before the iod-
lug and that these were designed to
secure acqlon favorable to Captain
Cowles, Of the Missouri. Secretary
Moody, after the conference,' daid:
"I have made a pretty careful in-

that thia is the case. I Intend to
probe this matter to the bottom. It
is the desire of both the president and
myself that there shall be a most r:g-
Id' InvestigatiUd."
Secretary Moody's statenfents ro-
fer to telegrams "To the court of in-
quiry." The chargeof The Army and
Navy Journal was that they were sert
to "a member of that court." It Is
stated at the white house that the
president has directed that nobJing be
left undone, because Captain 'Cowlos
sla his brother in law. If it is ascer-
tained that Influence was used to pre-
vent fair Investigation and- to shield
Captain, Cowles, thp president, would
direct that a court martial las orderel,
the facts will show to the discredit ofr
Oiptain Cowles and compel severe
punishment of that officer. -In navy
department circles, as well as poilti-
eal, it is said that there are sugges-
tlons that a court martiaL would be
the only satisfactory way out of thie
affair, but th's ais regarded as natural,
In view of the prominence of Captain
dowles and bis connections. It Is cah-
derstood that The Army and Nai1
Journal will "stand pat" upon its
charge that Such telegrams were seat.
The Army and Navy Journal, the
old conservative service paper of the
country, devoted cons' derkble space
In Its issue of April 2d tq this case:.
In referring to the record, this jour-
nal says:
"It contains the finding of the court
of Inquiry, the endorapment upon it
by' Rear Adm!ral Barker and Judge
Advocate Lemly, the aincluslons of
the secretary of the navy and a letter
from the secretary of Admiral Dew-
ey and Admiral Dewey's reply. The
record does not Include, however, the
two dispatches by 'high authority' at
Washington to a member of the court
'previous to the ending."
It is the talk In navy circles that
previous to the fidig of te court of
Inquiry, two dispatches were sent to
a member of that body by some one
"high In authority" In Washington,
which were Intended to Influence the.
finding of that court.
It has also been discovered that the
finding of the court, which In a half-
hearted way recommended that no
further proceedings be taken, was not
the umnanimous diclsion of the court,
but was simply concurred In by a ma-
jority of the members.

It is estimated that there are 46,000
troops of all arms in Wlju and this
number is benag added to daily. The
troops in Wlju are among the best in
the Japanese arm:. They conslst of
the Imperial guard, which ia crack
corps, and the second and twelfth dl-
visions. These troops are supported
by artillery and cavalry.
The advance td WIju was marked by
cebtant. skirmishing with Russian de-
tachbzents which, after exchanging a
few shots with Japanese advance
guard, would retreat. Probably not
more than 100 men were Ailled and
wounded on both sides during the aJ-
vance on WUau.
The most hotly contested affair oc-
curred at Chong-Ju, about 80 miles
southeast of Wiju, between a detach
ment of 500 Japanese Infantry and
cavalry and 700 Cossacks. In this af-
fair, the Russians were routed, losing
thirty men killed and as many more
wounded. The Japanese lost flye men
killed and had eleven wounded. Among
the killed was LIeutenant Kato, who
was shot down while leading a charge
on the retreating Cossacks.
The Japanese army at Wiju is sup-
piled with all the material necessary
for crossing the Yalu, and it is bo-
lieved that the passage of the river
will soon be attempted.
There seems to be no strong Rui-
slan force on the north bank of the
river opposite Wlju, and it is thought
the Russ'ans are concentrating on
Mukden In order to protect that city
and the railroad line from .Harbin to
Port Arthur.
It Is rumored that the Japanese have
landed in force on the Llao-Tung pe-
ninsular in the vicinity of Nluchwang.
The seems to indicate that the plans
of the Japanese general staff contem-
plate a flank movement., f the Jap-
anese have landed on the penlnsuj.&

When Nature la Remlm.
Nature nods undoubtedly at times,
as In the case of the chIld born with-
Out a brain, whose case has been
made public this week. Not long ago
aa Infant was born and lived for
three weeks with a hole through its
heart. Thousands of us.,are color
blind, others have no musical sense.
And there arc many Laura Bridg-
mans, many Helen Klllers. Tho
queen of Roumania has or bad at her
court In personal attendance upon
herself the daughter of a blind noble-
man. She could neither hear nor
speak and had to be taught' to com-
mqnicate by holding the throat of a
speaker and Imitating the vibration
produced by the effort. Bt. what a
grudge against nature must such a
one as Lyon Playfair discovered ever.
He r.. was a girl who was -blit d,
deaf, dumb and could neither taste
nor smell. One might be pardoned
for Asking if such a life was worth
living. Yet there was a beautiful lesa
son in such an existence. as the great
warm heart of Playfair discovered.
He sent her a pretty finger ring, and
the poor mite replied in this pititally
pretty letter: "Dear Sir Lyon Play-
- fair; Bir Lyon Playfair sent Edlth
ring In box. Edith thank Sir Lyon
Playfair for ring. Sir Lyon Playfair
come to see Edith. Good-by. Edith."
During his visit the child had closely
examined his hands, wrists, arms and
face, her touch being marvelloualy
accurate. A year later he went again,
to see her. At first she did not recog-
nize him and no one betrayed his
identity. At length she turned back
the cuff of his shirt and touched ahi
wrist. Her face lit up with inLenso
joy. "It Is the Englishman who gave
me'the ring," she rapidly Spelled out
on her fingers: And in a second she
had flung her little arms around his
neck and was weeping wits. delight
at the recognition.-8t. Jamesa Ga.

The Sense of Smell.
How infinitely minute must be the
particles tha t emanate from the ob-
ject which the dog la tracking.. Yet.
the matter is extremely divisible.
The tenth part of a grain of musk
will continue for years to fill a room
with Ita odoriferous partIcles, and
at the end of that tinme will not be
appreciably diminished in weight by
the finest .balance. A cubic Inch of
air rising from the flame of a Buntsen
burner has been fond to contain no
fewer than 489,000,000 dust particles.
A drop of blood which might be saus-
pended from the point of. a needle
contains about a million of red flat-.
tened. corpuscl4. Still, though mat-
ter is so marvelloualy divisible, the
olfactory nerves are Infinitely more
sensitive. Much has yet to be Inves-
tigated with regard to the differenti-
,ation of the points in those nerves,
so that they may discriminte with
apparently miraculous accuracy; yet
even. the results of the scent of dogs
show how- marvelously .flne isJ their
discriminating power. Our sense' of

Wiping Out an Insult In Mexico.
A well-known ,member of the Amer-
tean colony boarded a crowded car,
one day recently, and In the jam hap-
pened to brush atalnst two Mexican
gentlemen,. well dressed iand .t bf lis-
tiEgusshed appearance. One of them;
a.fter. t few. tense words with his
friend, turned to the American gentile

Ing particular of the Incident until
the two men got off the ear whet he
did and continued to address him as
before. Callit b friend who was
passing" he aaked him to act as n
terpreter. Then be discovered that
the two mbn thought he 'had Insulted
them by brushing against them and
they asked "for satisfaction. The
American got mad. -He told the two
gentlemen that he would meet hem,'
one after the other, at any place, with
any weapon, a4d would give tbh, .'Ii
thb satisfaction that they could pos-
Cibly want. With that the Al.rlcanH

Notes by a Woman.
There are lotp of people of ability
and ambition who complain that every
Held is overcrowded, and there seems
to be no way of breaking In. Every-
body has to bustle and make his or
her own little corner in the world. The
first thing to do Is to prove one's right
to do it. Theat work. work, work. The
best palutigms are yet to be painted;
the best books are yet to be written;
the sweetest song .yet to be. coim-
posed. Perhaps it i e not one's des-
tiny to be the greatest, but tbere are
modest successes well worth having.
Onee's bet Ie the least one can give.
Don't be listed' I what you do by
the work of even th. greatest. They
were but men and women, and I war-
rantyou hard workers. Claimn your
owna place fl the world and don't allow
yourself to, be dispossessed if you've
Won fairly.
The busiest person In the world, and
the person who gets: the least credit
for Industry, Is the woman.who Is try-
haig to keep up with the fashions.

A Poute Domletl.
Everybody knows the man who Is
careful never to say "No" abruptly In
answer to a queaHon. "No" is a hard
word, but one may sometimes be made
ridioulous by a reluctance to utter It,
says an exchange.
A certain man who had this habit
was once met by two ladles who had
been discussing the peculiarity, and one
of them said that she wits positive sheo
could make him say "Oh, not" flatly.
So she addressed him thus: .
"Let me see, Mr. Smith: you are a
widower, are you not?"
"As much a widower, madam," he
answered, with a polite Inclination of
his head, "as It Is posslblao for a man to
be who has never married."
The lady had to own herself beaten.-

Have you ever noticed In a fashion-
able crowd how much like men the
women are and how much liko women
the men? It Is not that the men are
really effeminate or the women really
masculine, as a keen observer once put
It, but there Is, nevertheless, a curious
approximation In type. It may be to-
some extent a matter of dress. Women
affect the mannishab In their costume.
men In summer seek more color. But It
Is not dress alone. The vwor'in's face
seems stronger and the man's les -m in.
sunal than it would have been eve, n
centui-y ago. Theo figure, too, has 'ln itag-
ed. "Tho man Is less gross, the woman
more athiletle, and both are taller.-

Lion OCubs m Pefr.
The most attractive household pets
In the entire animal kingdom are said
to be very young lion cubs. They are
docile, affectionate and quick to learn
tricks, It Is said, besides being very
decoratLive, considered merely as an ar-
ticle of furniture. Persons who have
adopted young lions as pots ad en-
joyed their society for any length of
time are ever after Intolerant of any
animal so tamhe and uninteresting as a
dog er a cat.
A 4Basmt Sort of. Weddlamr.
VWha a marriage takes place among
the Negritos, a people of the Philippine
Islands, the whole tribe amsemblea, and
the asanced pair climb two trees grow-
ing close together. Then the elders
bend atho branches that tbe young folks
are on till their heads meet. When the
heads have thus touched each other the'
marriage Is legally accomplished, and
there are great rejoicings. A fantastic
dance complete the ecremoeny.
