Addition to the city of TaI hassee,
which iUes directly at the head of Adams
street-the street the west side of the
State capital.
The very handsome property thus so-
quired by the commission is covered
with a thick growth of large trees of
the natural forest, and comprises an
area approximating one and one-half
acres. The commission al secured at
a low price an option on the two lots
lying immediately north of the aepo pted
sito, which would make the entire area
about two and a half acres in extent,
and a perfect square in shape.
Mr. E. G. Chesley offered his services
to survey and plat the tract, and Mr.
M. MeClendon, the well-known land-
scape gardener who has done so much
to beautify the city of Jacksonville since
S thefire offered to lay out the grounds.
Both of these offers were promptly ac-
| cepted.

structure, and the preliminary work of

Some complaints of defective lighting
of the streets have recently beenheard.
( and in the interest of the public a rep-
resentative of this paper visited the
) chairman of the board of managers and
was assured that steps are being taken,
as rapidly as the means at the board's
command will allow, to perfect the sys-
tem, with every prospect that in a short
time every defect will be corrected and
the system made as effective as is pos-
Some street talk, hinting at extrava-
gance in management, and apparently
started for "campaign purposes," was
also referred to, and the chairman,
(who with the other members of
the board, .are well-known citizens
S o-tthe very highest repute), insisted
upon displaying the books and re-
cords of the board, which were found
to be carefully kept showing the board's
transactions in the minutest detail.
These books and records are open to
the inspection of any citizen, and if and if any
one can find any fault with which to
charge the board, it will appear therein.
Such inspection and investigation is, of
course, invited and will be welcomed by
the board at any and all times.

wife and child. He contracted a slight
cold a few days ago and paid but little
attention to it. Yesterday morning he

To sell by ton delivered, 22,152 canes
weighed w,7 pounds, or 27 t87-1000

farmer making up his crop of $38.60.
This will apply as well to small or infe-

His strength lay in the power of self-

with the keenest zest the most difficult
problems, and threw over a question of
morals or duty the glamor of pathos and

since he began his congressional career.

Oak Daily Democrat.
Most Floridians will no doubt prefer
the method adopted by Hon. Frank
Clark for coming into prominence in
Congress, namely, the introduction of
the Arizona Statehood bill, rather than
the questionable one of Hon. W. B. La-
mar, the stirring up of "family troub-
les" in Democratic ranks.-St. August-
ino Record.
Congressman Lamar, of this district,
and John Sharp. Williams, the Demo--
cratic eorty leader in Congreea, had
somewh of tilt Monday relative te
Mr. Lamar's stand on railway rate leg-
islation. The result is, Mr. Lamar is
no longer on the committee on inter-
state and foreign commerce. A minor-
ity leader is evidently a dangerous in-
stitution to trifle with.-Quincy Times.
The Florida Congressman used some-
what bad taste in taking up such a
matter on the floor of the House, The
Democratic caucus is where the matter
should have been settled. So far how-
ever, as Williams is concerned, his in-
nato littleness could not be bettor ils-
trated than in the measure to which
he resorted for the gratification of
personal spite. He long ago digatt
the majority of real Demotrats every '
where, and it is to be hoped that the
minority, which has grown a wall ua-
der his leadership, will have somethingg
better to follow by the time another
Congress convenes. Pensacola J o u r -
It is much to be feared that the Dem-
ocratic statesmen in Congress will per-
sist in a practical demonstration of the
infinite divisibiiity of matter, as taught
upon a time in the text book of natu-
ral philosophy. Lamar and Shackel-
ford were talking for the ears of their
constituents at home which gave them
the advantage of Williams, who was
defending the advantages of party dis-
ciple and the necessity that Congress-
men should bow to the decisions of the
caucus of their party. lu these days
there is o sort of rage for freedom from
the obligations of party whih wiil lead
to political anarchy unless checked. -
Tampa Times.
Of course Floridians regret the dis-
placement of Mr. Lamar from the com-
mittee on interstate commerce, but
blind censure of John Sharp Wifliams,
the minority leader of the House, is
useless and worse.
If it is admitted that Mr. Lamar has
been unjustly treated, it must be con-
cededthat at here is no remedy. Mr.
Williams was made minority leader of
the House by unamimus vote, and cue-
tom imposes upon the minority leader
the duty of deciding onthhe minority
representatives on commit tees. So
there is no help for whathas been done
and complaining when complaint can
accomplish nothing is undignified. In
this case the little that it can accom-
plish is harmful. It gives the majority
a chance to enjoy the sight of a small
minority divided. The Democrats in
the House need to be united.
But after all, however Floridians
may feel, the Democrats of the nation
will not see any great injustice to Mr.
Lamar in his dsplacement from the
committee on interstate commerce. On
a question peculiarly in the province of
this committee, he refused to be bound
by the action of the Democratic caucus.
He was not in rebellion against the
Democratic leader. He was antagonis-
tic on this question to the Democratic
party in the House.
If the Democrats expect to accom-
plish anything they must stand togeth-
er. Individuals must give up their
opinions if they conflict with the party
caucus. Where each individual follows
his own opinion in every respect there
is no party. Under such a condition
there would be no organization What
is called the Democratic party in the
House would be only a mob: and with
such an example set by the I)emocrats
in Congre s the party outside of Con-
greas would disintegrate. If the men
elected to office may defy the party or-
ganisation may not the men who elect-
ed them do the same? Then what
left but the Republican party, ard a

The dItral Graftr.
In a recent'article in The Sun, Gov-
* .*r. Broward states that Florida is
actedd with a sprinkling of editors
pro sell editorials for so much an inch
f-m.timent thrown in." The Monti-
.Hllo News suggests the compiling of a
list of the guilty editors, and the Tal-
lahassee True Democrat demands pub-
licity and punishment for those whom
the cap fits.
Modern society is pretty thoroughly
aroused over this graft evil and in ma-
ny places is hunting down its enemies.
There is a leaven of this reform even
now at work in Florida and if the News
mistakes not it was injected at Talla-
hassee, but up to the present time has
not met with the hearty approval of the
The insane asylum graft and the
state printing graft and-but these are
enough for purposes of illustration.
The editorial grafter is an enemy of
the State and should be exposed.
And so is the political grafter.
But the graft, in either case, could
never exist but for the men behind the
Is Governor Broward deeply concern-
ed in finding and naming these men?
That is of vastly more importance to
the public than the listing of impecuni-
ous editors who "sell editorials at so
much an inch-sentiment thrown in"-
to candidates anxious to buy and whose
only concern is to secure editors who
will stay bought.
The Monticello News can secure a
list of offenders. That's easy.
The Sun has a list, and promises to
give it publicity in the event that the
offenders sin again. And the Sun man
is just the chap to do it and do it prop-
er. -Palatka News.

is, in its torments, like dying of con-

in its first stage," writes Wm. Myers,
of Cearfoss, Md., "after trying differ-
ent medicines and a good doctor, in

"I was much afflicted with sciatica,"
writes Ed. C. Nud, lowaville, Sedgwick
county, Kan., "going about on crutches
and suffering a great deal of pain. I
was induced to try Ballard's Snow Lini-
ment, which relieved me. I used three
60c bottles. It is the greatest liniment
I ever used; have recommended it to a
number of persons; all express them-
selves as being benefited by it. I now
walk without crutches, able to perform
a great deal of light labor on the farm."

,Jaiss Clifford Carroll, granddaughter
of the late Mrs. Ruth Newsome, re-
quests The True Democrat to express
for her her sincere thanks to the King's
Daughters and many other friends for
their many kindnesses tendered and
gratefully received during Mrs. New-
some's illness.
La Grippe and Pneumonia.
Pneumonia often follows la grippe,
but never follows the use of Folev's
Honey and Tar. It cures la grippe,
coughs, and prevents pneumonia and
consumption. Ask for Foley's Honey
and Tar and refuse any substitute of-
fered. Mr. G. Vacher, of 157 Osgood
street, Chicago, writes: "My wife had
a severe case of la grippe three years
ago, and it left her with a terrible
cough. She tried a bottle of Foley's
Honey and Tar and it gave immediate
relief. A 50-cent bottle cured her cough
entirely." Refuse substitutes. Sold
by all dealers.
The True Democrat had a pleasant
call Wednesday from Mr. M. P. Riley,
formerly of Chicago, and now residing
with Mr. E. N. Mabry, about 8 miles
from town. Mr. Riley has long been a
subscriber to this paper, and has come
to stay. He was at the head of a flour-
ishing job printing business in Chicago,
but desired to find a more genial climate,
and will engage in gardening and poul-
try farming in this county. He has
procured a fine incubator and other ap-
pliances of the business and we wish
him the fullest measure of success in it.
Mr. Riley is an expert angler, and en-
joys nothing better than the fine :port
he finds in our beautiful lakes.
All efforts have failed to find a better
remedy for coughs, colds and lung
troubles than Foley's Honey and Tar
stops the cough, heals the lungs and
vents serious results from a cold.
J. N. Patterson, Nashua, Iowa, writes:
"Last winter I had a bad cold on my
lungs and tried at least half a dozen
advertised cough medicines and had
treatment from two physicians without
getting any benefit. A friend recom-
mended Foley's Honey and Tar and
two-thirds of a bottle cured me. I con-
sider it the greatest cough and lung
medicine in the world." Sold by all
dealers. -

It is our intention to conduct a first-class furniture business, and we ask a liberal share of your patronage.

Our stock will be found to contain the latest novelties as well as all Standard goods. We are making preparations to be
able to execute promptly any order we may receive for any kind of furniture, and house and office furnishings.
"To fill a long felt want" we will inaugurate a repair department for high grade furniture, which will be in charge of one
of the most skillful workmen obtainable.
It would afford us great satisfaction to be able to announce a strictly cash, pay-as-you-go, policy; but it is our opinion that
in a business the size of ours, in dear old Tallahassee, the plan would not work, still, the merchant who extends credit indiscriminately
must either "lose out" or charge exhorbitant prices in order that the good customer shall pay the debts of the one who never pays.
We may be beaten by some, but we intend to reduce to the minimum the number of those who buy goods on credit of us and never
pay. Persons unknown to us must show us their ability and willingness to pay as agreed upon. By selling largely for cash and in-
sisting upon a strict adherence to a careful credit policy we will be able to offer our goods at the lowest possible figures.
To customers of small means, whose reputation and references show them to be worthy of it, we will extend the installment
plan of purchasing.

If we can offer you the best goods, the lowest prices and the most satisfactory service,
enumerate some of the goods we carry.

give us your patronage. Below we
