Beautiful Christmas services were
held at (race Episcopal church at
eleven o'clock Friday morning, and
there was also an early morning ser-
The church, which is now entirely
completed. was very handsomely dec-,
orated with Christmas greens, holly.
mistletoe and palms, and 'the altar was
charmingly decked with white roses
and carnations and brilliant poincetti
The Christmas anthems sung by the
vestal choir were very bright and
happy, and the music on the hand-
some new pipe organ. used for tne
first time at 'this service, and played
by Miss War*mann, was a very de-
lightful part of the service.
Mr. Harrison preached a very beau-
tiful and appropriate Christmas ser-
mon. having as his subject the birth-
day of our Lord. Mr. Harrison's ser-
mons are always a pleasure to his
hearers and on Christmas he surpass-
ed himself, his sermon being eloquent,!
earnest and impressive.
The sermon was followed by the
communion service.
Very appropriate and attractive
services were also held at St. Phillips
Catholic church Christmas morning,
conducted by Father D. Bottolaccio.
The little church had previously
been decked with Christmas flowers
and ornaments, and the sacred service
held in this edifice was very impress-
ive and was well attended.
There were no services in any of
the other churches.

look like raw beefsteak, all red. and no

They were so swollen that I had to

I remembered that I had a bit of Cuti-

rom all directions.
We say this after reading the glow-

Christmas as given in the various pub-

In many cities the Salvation Army
prepared sumptuous dinners for the
,oor, and the King's Daughters were
kept busy distributing gifts to the
ieedy, and the rich made themselves
lappy in sharing their opulence with
heir less fortunate fellows.
In Ocala Mr. Keating gave the Ma-
'ion county hospital twenty-five dol-
ars in cash and a dozen bottles of
whiskey and braudy to be used for
medical purposes, it received lesser
;ifrs from many others.
So the story goes. Every home, ev-
'ry public institution, every individ-
ial, has a pleasant story to relate.
And the Christmas publications
were more beautiful in color and soft-
'r in tone, it seemed to us, than in
previous years.
On every side and :n every conceiv-
able shape the story is tohl that the
vordl is growing better. That there

There is more tolerance. The love

county fair opened so auspiciously,
and that the farmers are waking up
to the profitableness of securing bet-
ter breeds of live stock. Now, there
is one very important matter which I
beg the privilege of calling attention
to. Personally, I am not very deep-
ly interested in it. I refer to what is
known in all the middle and north-
western states as a "herd, or no
fence law," i. e, a law compelling ev-
eryone to protect their own stock,
and not permit them to trespass on
other's lands and crops. I am aware
that such a law will meet with strong
pposition from large stock owners,
who are content with a little profit
in raising a scrawny breed of stock
at the expense of their neighbors and
tax payers, or owners of lands where-
O their stock grazes. But that is
enly the moral side of the question.
It Is an tabWlked fact in all coun-
tries that there s more profit in high
bred tock, not alone from the sales
of the same, with the dairy product,
hbt the lands are made better and
therefore more valuable for its pro-
duetion. Some may say, and I have
heard them say it, that there is too

other republics. Possibly Mr. Carne-

markable how nature comes to the
aid sometimes when all other reme-
dies fail, and with the navigation of
the air it will be impossible for cus-
tom officials to examine baggage
while crossing the line, which, to a
certain extent, would make it -ery
difficult to collect customs. But that
is a question for the next generation.

In order to make the White House
collection representatives of all the
presidents, it was necessary to place
some ware In the cabinets which had"
not been used in the mansion. This
sl notably true of the Washington dis-
play. It was true also of the Gar-
field china, which was sent to the col-
lection by the president's widow,
through her son, James Rudolph Gar-
field, the present secretary of the in-
terior. President Garfleld and his
family were in the White House only
a few months, and purchased no china
for it whatever; but Mrs. Garfield
sent the collection a fruit compote, a
desert dish and a plate from a set
which has been .used in the family
for many years. It is of Haviland
make, and is bordered to buff, on
which is a floral design in brown and
bronze. On each dish the letter G is
emblazoned, and in the center of the
dishes there is a bunch of bright
colored autumn leaves.
A Pierce cup and saucer, banded in
bright red, and a Buchannan cup and
saucer, bearing a bunch of flowers,
were contributed to the collection last
winter. Mr. William Crump, who was
steward at the White House under
President Hayes. Garfield and Arthur,
was fortunate in securing a good many
things at the Arthur sale, among
which was a number of pieces of the
Pierce ware. Through the generosity
of his daughter. Miss Harriett B.
Crump, a covered vegetable dish an
openwork fruit compote, and two
plates of this much-admired, wide,
red-banded china have been added to
the collection. Mr. James R.Ward.
Jr., and his brother H. Clay Ward, of
Baltimore, Md., have nearly all of the
state set which was used in the White
House during the Buchannan admin-
istration. Their father, who held an
important governmental position dur-
ing the Civil war, was a warm per-
sonal friend of Lincoln, and it was at
the latter's suggestion that be pur-
chase this china when the new Lin-
coln set replaced i't. Of course it is
highly prized by the members of the
family to whom it has descended.
President Tyler's son's. Dr. Lyon
Gardiner Tyler and Judge David
Gardiner Tyler, of Willimsburg. and
his daughter, Mrs. Pearl Tyler Ellis,
of Shawsville, Va., have most inter-
resting collections of family plate and
furniture, which includes some of the
oldest pieces in the country. They
have signified their intention to send
the White House collection some of
these mementoes. Part of Judge

Tyler's portion of the family plate has
a double interest in that it passed
through the Richmond fire when Pres-
ident Tyler's houses was burned in
the destruction of that city in 18G5.
It is hoped that through President
Taylor's sister, Mrs. Philip Dandrige.
of Winchester, Va., or his nieces, Mrs.
R. T. Jones, of New York, and Mrs.
Philip R. Alger, of Annapolis. Md.,
some of the Zachry Taylor ware may
shortly to be alded to the collection.
An effort is also being-made through
the kind offices of Mrs. Robert Mc-
Kee, of New York, and Mr. J. S.
Harrison, of Kansas City: Mr. Mar-
'tin Van Burean, of Fiskill, N. Y., and
Mrs. Millard Filmore, of Wyncote, Pa.,
to locate some of the china plate of
their respective distinguished fore-
bears. When that is accomplished
and something added of President
Johnson's every president will be rep-
resented in the collection, and it is
hoped that a few of the individual ex-
hibits which are very small, may be
enlarged.-Abby G. Baker, in Century
for October.


Over $200,000 Given to Employes as
Provided in His Will.

Santa Claus gave over $200,000
worth of Christmas presents to the
4,600 employees of the John B. Stetson
company to-day. This is what he left
with the men, women and girls after
he presided at the Christmas exer-
cises: $100,000 in cash (everybody
got some); 1,900 turkeys (one to each
married man); 1,500 hats to men and
boys; 1,000 pairs of gloves to the
girls; 1,000 boxes of candy, also for
the girls; 65 gold watches to old and
faithful employees; blocks of Stetson
stock, worth over $50,000, to particu-
larly deserving employees.
The presentation never before
equalled in this city, was attended by
unique services in the vast auditor-
ium which forms part of the 'hat
factory.-Philadelphia Dispatch.

"What is the Matter With Florida?"
The writer went on to relate the har-
rowing details of a murder or two in
the state, and some other matters of
concern, yet wholly without reason for
any alarm.
Florida is the oldest state in the
Union and the largest in the whole
south. Regardless of its size and im-
portance there seems to be a bond of
union and sympathy between its peo-
ple from Pensacola to Key West.
An incident happens at Miami, and
it trickles through the state press un-
to the farthest ends. If it gives joy at
Miami they laugh even unto the north-
ern borders of the state. If it is sad-
ness they weep at Fernandina.
Some day Florida will not ba so
general. Each community will be un-
to itself.
There is less little crime in Florida.
There is less per population 'than any
other state. But we make more out
of that little.
Florida is all right.-Miami News-
