The place is incorporated, .but no

over ten years; the many public im-
Wrokements are made by the push and

BSx'thousand people went through

One of the best advantage Sea8
Mateo enjoys is transportation; being
= both river and rail is an advantage
that few Florida points enjoy. The
past serson, for inrtaace, railroads
and terminals at Jacksonville were
more than congested and fruit ship-
ped from points down the central
part of the state was, in some cases,
three weeks getting to Jacksonville,
an route to northern markets, and
did not bring enough to pay freight,
while San Mateo shippers, at same
time. would ship from here one day
and have fruit go out of Jacksonville
on the Clyde sidp the -next. This lit-
tie matter this season alone was
worth thousands of dollars to the San
Mateo growers and the homeseeker
will do well to bear In mind trans.
portation and cheap rates that come
with competition, In selecting a Flor-
Theo population is about 8560, who
eame mostly from the northern states.

Poverty an9 Luxury.
ByJ. T. Lincoln, in the Augfust Atlantic.
OVERTY and Luxury-these are the diseases of our industrial
regime, to the cure of which the socialists offer their ineffectual
remedy-ineffectual since the population of the United States
Is made up of ninety million individuals, some of whom will be
forever on the verge of bankruptcy, however great their In-
come. and some frugal and always carrying their account on
Ithe right side of the balance sheet, however small their annual
allotment of wealth. "0
,Poverty and Luxury-twin diseases sapping the life of society-the one
destroying ambition by withholding ufllclent nourishment to the body; the
other rendering men worthless to society by a superabundance of the good
things of life. Poverty is a disease not Indigenous to our American soil-
It Is a plague brought in by immigrant ships from worn-out Europe, and the
patients are cured here by the thousands. So long as their. remains an
uncultivated acre of land anywhere in the Union, there is no r.?al cause for

hIe Richest Family
'T Is not generally known that the Imperial family of Russia is
the richest royal family In Europe, and derives its vast wealth
from three sources-the State treasury, the Imperial domains
(formerly church lands), and the so-called "cabinet properties."
A writer in Harper's Weekly gives some interesting facts. The
State treasury paye out $7,000,000 per annum for the needs of
the imperial house, principally for the maintenance of the
palaces and the officials and servants attached to them. The' reigning
empress, for example, has an allowance of $10,.000 per year, and the dowager
empress the same. Every child born to the Czar receives from birth to the
;. age of twenty-one nearly $20,000 a year, while the heir to the throne receives
annually, In addition to the maintenance of palaces. $50,000. Daughters re

the tail averages nine. Inches. Its
height when standing erect is about
twelve inches at the shoulder and

Tallahassee. Fla.-That vast
streams of water are rushing under
the surface of Florida at a depth
reached only by its flowing wells is
the firm belief of many Floridians.
But the conclusions of Professor E.
H. Sellards, state geologist, from his
surveys in Central Florida,'as describ-
ed In Bulletin No. 1, indicates that
this belief is erroneous. The aver-
age rainfall of about fifty-three inch

butt a few days afterward. This shows
that it is an outlet for the local uns
derground water supply and is not
fed by any stream unaffected by the
Another fact brought out by this
bulletin is the amount of erosion of
the soft Vicksburg limestone beneath
the surface of Florida that is con-
tinually going on. Professor Sellards
estimates that the mineral solids re-
moved by the springs of Florida tak-
en altogether amount annually to
more than four hundred tons per
square mile. It is evident that in the
course of a few thousand years Flor-
ida will be quite hollow and the sur-
face may settle down considerably.
TOURIST SEASON OPENS EARLIER.
Many Who Own Winter Residences
SJacksonville, Fla.-The tourist sea-
son in Florida is dawning. There is
to better evidence of the fact than
the. presence of numbers of familiar
faces of regular winter visitors in ho-
tel corridors daily, and the reports
from transportation officials. While
most of the tourists who are return-
ing now are those who own winter
homes in the state, yet many are com-
ing to the state for the first time and
their arrival is taken to mean that
the season will open earlier this year
and -by the first of January there will
be more tourists in the state than aP

The advantages of Florida as a
place in which to spend the winter

than ever before, and as a cosne-
quence a record-breaking tourist sea-

tern people spending last season in
the state. The people in that section
of the coutnry are now enjoying an

Miami's carnival promises to be a

The capital invested -in the phos-
phate plants in southwestern Florida
runs up far into the millions, and the
mines south of Lakeland alone em-
ploy about five thousand men. Few
persons are aware of the great value
of that industry to Florida.
One effect of the abundant rains is
to drive the rabbits from the low
places in some parts of Florida. They
seek the higher ground and fall upon
the farmers' vegetable crops, which
rapidly disappear. Thus even the
trucker who plants above the repch
of the floods suffers from the too gen-
erous supply of moisture.
The season thus far has been ex-
cellent at Lakeland for strawberries,
an unusually large acreage of which
is now under cultivation. This has
been the rainiest season Polk county
has experienced in some years, which
has been very beneficial both for the
growers and the health of the commu-
nity. Tble many lakes, which sur-
round Lakeland are higher now than
they haye ,been in sone years. Vege-
tables of all kinds are growing nicely,
and the farmers and track growers
are anticipating a good year. The
orange crop is maturing and it prom-
ises to be as large as heretofore.
Some state editors assume that the
mullet is the only fish that has a giz-
zard. Reference to the Standard Dic-
tionary shows that there is a "gizzard-
shad" and a "gizzard-trout." The
same authority says that the croc-
odiles and the great ant-eater have
gizzards. That the mullet has a giz-
zard is no new fact to the older set-
tlers of Florida.

An Inquiry Into the cause of this
teudeney to mental Ills among house-
hold workers has been undertaken
'by a mental specialist. who Is of the
opinion that lack of recreation and
of exercise In the open air forms the
root of the trouble.
Women. he further says. It has
been proved over and over again, are
less able than men to face monotony.
And In household dutle as these are
often performed. may be found the
most spiritless monotony. Remedies
for this condition are not far to seek.
The difficulty will be found in in.
during many housekeep'rs to appre-
clate the benefits of the ounce of
prevention. Women who have ga!n-
'ed an intelligent control over their
time and their households could be
of excellent service. by the force
of example.. in helping to solve this
particular problem.-Bomson Tran.

One of the largo peach growers In
Arkansas sold his crop for $8,810.
It was produced on forty-four acres
and the fruit was sold through the
I',ach Growers' Exchange. After
paying for picking and packing he

One fifteen-cre orchard which lie

peaches enough, this year to just

Si, Wyoming lived the.
a fierce and warlike

what to expect,
them Sioux, which
atmas B enues. To this tribe
,italOI young brave who want-
4 w much to become a chief. His
4ata9 was a fierce warrior and had
tautht him how to fight, but he was
not satisfied to' follow the leaders
of his tribe, for he wanted to leadl
other Indians himself. When this
! yoqu man was only eighteen years
eo.be had already learned to use
the ow, cold ride Indian ponies
and iwim deep. rivers, an a. a
great buffalo hunter; besid q-!
t4 danced in war dances wit '
braves. In some way he managed to
'gdt a rifle which fired several times
.without reloading, and after that he
began to' feel of much more import-
ance than other young Indians.
At first the young braves were an-
gry with him. but he soon showed
them that he was a skillful warrior.
sad before long many young Indians
chose him for their leader. Now he
could wear an eagle feather in his
war bonnet, and was a real chief.
At this time Uncle Sam had prom-
ised to give each Indian a good blank-
et, and they were glad to get them.
4The blankets were all bright red, and
when this young Indian and his fol-
lowers each wearing a red blank-
et. o4 rapidly past. some onc said,
"Bee the Red Cloud." FrozaLht time
*p the young leader was called "Red
gpa,"0end so far as I know was
,'BM after given any other name.
The *Mx Indians have a won-

Nobody could say now that Red
Clonddwas not a great leader, and
even UqLN Sam, however, he feared
him, had 'b confess that he was
"Chief of 11 the living Sioux In-
dians." All the Sioux.chiefs whose
fathers had beel1;chleff before them
were willing to give some Indian
lands to the white people and live
on a reservation, but Red Cloud
said: "No, no; I want war." and the
young warriors followed him in spite
of the chiefs. He had many battles
and simply would not stop fighting.
At last. in 1874. the Indians came
to one of Uncle Sam':) army posts
for a "big talk." Th result was
'hat the Indiana agreed to give up the
land they had fought for, and went
to live oe w*at was called "Red
Cloud Reservation." But still peace
did not dbme. TIey -were always
ready to break out. and every once
in a while houses were burned.
stages waylaid, and people killed. It
1 of no use to treat the tribe kind-
ly so long as Red C(loud wanted war.
At last. after many years, the war
chief began to feel that he could not
win is fight, so very sadly he buried
his wahawk and signed what hbe
caeA '"a peace paper." But lie did
not r flly love his white brothers.
antid wLqke Sam wanted Indian
scouts to help h flht in 1876 Red
,Cloud was angry an4 sent some of
%his warrior .to wayla, the so'dliers
and Indian scouts. Thln Uncle Sam
said that Red Cloud o uld not eX*"
pect to be a chief he did s eh
things, for the offlmer found thaf he
was always planning to ma4 jrou-
ble; and they put Spotted Tall, a'thief
who was frank and honest, In /Red
Cloud's plaev. But what go ,did
that do when the young d4ins
loved Red Cloud and did what I
said? And he kept them from wor -
Ing with their hands, and said braves
must only hunt and figait, and he
would not try to keep peace or to
help Spotted Tall control the young
Then at last when Red (loud was
a very old n.an. more than eighty
years old. he was sick for the first
time in his life. ife had to stay" In
his lodge and be taken care of, for
he was too weak to move. Now be
began to notice how kind every one
was to him when he could do nothing
for himself, and his heart was soft-
ened. When he was able to be up
again and go out into the woods he
was very happy, and began to be
sorry for people whkwere not strong
and well. Though until he was Il
himself, he had despised them.
Hle saw how Uncle Sami was try-
ing to take care of everybody in this
big country of our., and he said. "In-
dians must take land lkoe e men;
they must work with a plow and hoe,
and they must read books and study.F
Then there was peace in the north
land, for the fiercest of all our
Indian warriors up to that time had
really surrendered at last.

THE REFORMED BRONCO.
May Be Been Any Day in the Bridle
Paths of Central Park, New York.
To the general public the word
bronco suggests everything wild and
vicious in horseflesh. One associates
the usefulness 9f the bronco almost
entirely with the rugged West. That
this wiry little animal could ever de-
velop the points of a good park horse
would be received with much reser-
vation by most persons.
Yet some ten years or more of
cross-breiding, says countryy Life In
America, has accomplished this some-
what amazing result. Today one can
see on the bridle paths of central
Park the well groomed bronco fra-
ternizing as an equal with the Blue
Grass thoroughbred, and his number
is constantly growing.
To be sure. he is no longer the
hammer-head with a pronounced ewe
neck, almost as devoid of flesh as a
skeleton. lie has developed a fine
crest in this upbreeding and can
show as fine a neck as any Kentucky
His middle piece is no longer dis-
tended from much eating of grass
food, nor is he so loosely joined to
his quarters as his prototype. High-
er living has rounded him into a
strikingly well proportioned saddle
horse. In his new estate he sub-
sists less on the flesh, juicy grasses.
and the new order grows quite a
But through all this transforma-
tion he still retains the leg char-
acteristics of his bronco ancestry,

In muscle and slender In bone, but
the muscles of strong quality and
the sinews very firm.
Ills power of endurance has dimin-
ished somewhat. but even so he has

less if turned out to the freedom

an account of himself as did his

Fern Leaves as a Food Preservative.
An American consul reports that
In parts of England fern leaves have
long been employed In packing fruit,
fresh butter, etc., for market. Form-
%rly grape leaves were used for this
purpose, but the fern leaf is said to
b, far superior to that of the vine
for keeping articles wrapped in It
fresh and wholesome. The fishermen
of the Isle of Man pack their fresh
herrings in fern, which keep the fish
frcsh until it reaches market. Po-
tatoes packed in ferns keep many
months longer than those packed in
straw. Fresh meat also is preserved
for a protracted period when swathed
in fern leaves. It is said that the
preservative quality of the fern Is
due to the large quantities of salt in
Its composition. The strong odor of
the fern also repeli larvae, maggots,
