The Tallahasseean began publication on June 1, 1885. Soon thereafter, it merged with another Tallahassee newspaper, the Land of Flowers. Edited and published by R. Don McLeod, it was called the Weekly Tallahasseean and Land of Flowers. Between 1888 and 1891, the paper assumed the title of the Weekly Tallahasseean . New ownership seems to have occasioned the name change. The Weekly Tallahasseean was published first by John G. Collins and then by John C. Trice. Some accounts suggest that the Weekly Tallahasseean was continued by the Tallahassee Weekly Capital in 1905. In any case, the Weekly Tallahasseean appears to have ceased publication in that year. Because there are several runs available in Florida libraries and because Tallahassee is the seat of Florida’s state government, the Weekly Tallahasseean is frequently consulted by researchers.

Tallahassee's Need.
Editor Tallahasseean-Do you
you know, Mr. Editor, that I have
been doing a lot of thinking lately
along a certain line and I want to tell
the good christian fathers and moth-
ers. and all good citizens generally
what has been the burden of my
thought as to what Tallahassee
needs most. With her many other
good things which she already has,
and that is a first class up-to-date
free reading room for both sexes. I
do not mean a library as-that you
already have, but a nicely fitted up
reading room on the ground floor, on.
Monroe street, at a point somewhere
between the -capitor'and. post office
building, :where kept a file of
daily and ireekly papers, books and-
magazine not bnly from our -own
-State, bu2-from all the leading cities
the country over where both young
an4 old' of bbth sexes are welcome
'to'drop in mird spend an hour or two
in.ieadiig* the'6urrent news of the
,day -atany hour between 8 in the
-morning and 0 in the evening. You
may think this scheamea-.vinsnary and
impracticable,but1 I :.assate you it is
*notr and when once started and on
its feet, it will alms go.-its own
momentum. ..-
n For your room you will need an
entire wellilried store room 13 to
24 feet iIde an4d25 to -30 feet deep,
with *narrowr tatfes arranged around
on whic'ate. -displayed. the different
newspaps, so that at;, glance you
.may-.beenatlid io select the paper
you're 4iterested- i .and wish to
ea Besides tes se tlaliles you will
- nemshelves, cases and files, to ac-
comimodate your books, .mo nthlies,
dailies'and magazines, many of which
will be as you will find, donated by
your patrons and friends.
I would suggest as a name the
"Free Reading rKoom and Associa-
tion of Tallahassee." And would
organize by having a president, di.
rectors, secretary and treasurer. The
newspaper editors to whom your sec-
retary will write, as a rule, will
gladly help in forwarding the move-
ment, and will donate a copy of his
paper weekly or daily, as an ad. at
all times present in your reading
Stamp all incoming papers and mat,
ter "property freee'4'eading room,"
or something like that, thus prevent-
ing its being carried off by unprinci-
pled persons.
While your reading room should
be free, you must at the same time
provide for contingent expenses.
such as gas, rent, etc. Therefore I
would have a stationary contribution
bor, properly labeled and placed in a
conspicuous place in the room to re-
ceive the voluntary offerings of those
who feel like helping such a grand
and noble work as this along.
MnSf ill your nations in the _n-r-e


own a suitable room would donate
its use to your society free. Let
your work be "Christian," but non-
sectarian, so that all ydur citizens
may meet on a common. ground and
work and: act together.
I would have -the words "Free
Reading Room" displayed over your
door so that all may know your ob-
ject and purposes.
What I have written above will
apply to the colored race with equal
or greater force, and they too .can
work along the same lines with im-
mense advantage to the young men
and women of their race in your city.
My ideas are crudely presented here
as to details, but with thought and
care they can be worked out, and if
you go forward you will be enabled
to build up in your midst in a month
or so an influence for good that you
would not have removed for ten
thousand times what it has cost you.

His Life Was Saved.
Hr. J. E. Lilly, a prominent citizen of
Hannibal, Mo., lately had a wonderful
deliverance from a frightful death. In
telling of it he says: "I was taken with
Typhoid Fever, that ran into Pnaumo-
nia. My Lungs became hardened. I
was so weak I couldn't even sit up in
bed. Nothing helped me. I expected to
soon die of Consumption, when I heard
of Dr. King's New Discovery. One bot-
tie gave great relief. I continued to use
it, and now am well and strong. I can't
say too much in its praise." This mar-
velous medicine is the surest and quick.
est cure in the world for "all Throut and
Lung Trouble. Regular sizes 50. cents
and $1.00. Trial bottles free at any
drug store; every bottle guaranteed.
Brouolt Here for Burial.
The body of Mrs. Virginia L.
Denham, who died at Jacksonville
Thursday night, was brought here
on the afternoon train Friday, and
buried from" St. John's Episcopal
Church. Mrs. Denham was a native
of Virginia, aged seventy-six years.
She had resided in Tallahassee for
many years, and was highly esteemed
in this community.
Mrs. Denham, who was a daughter
of-. ex-Governor Brown of this State,
was nained by Gen. LaFayette. The
General visited her father's house
when she was an infant, and taking
her upon his.' knees asked her name.
Upon being told that she had not
been named lie requested to be al-
lowed that. privilege. The 'request
was granted and -he named her for
the State of her nativity and himself
-Virginia LaFayette.

Washingto, Jly 14-It is'
evident that the-Democrats
be quite so sho-t of money
campaign this fall as they w
*years ago, and that the' Repubim ':
will not be able to entirely sway "- .:.
ebem by mere weight of gold as -
did last time. Some of the
Democrats who have come back-
the party this year are ex ., -
contribute with greater or less li
ality this year, as an evidence of th~ -"
good faith and to re-establish their
influence in the party. Moreover,,' .
some of the wealthy anti-imperialists .
will, it is said, contribute with fair ,
liberality. From these several:
sources, and from a few men outside
of politics, who are infatuated with .
Bryan, it is expected that they will
be able to raise funds enough for a.
campaign economically administered.
They certainly do hot anticipate be-
ing as much in distress for want of
money as they were in 1896, though
they will not have enough to 'be ex-
travagant with. It is not thought
that the Republicans will have as
much money as they did in 1896, but
there is no doubt of their having as
much as they really need or can use .-.
to an advantage in the campaign.
Now that the Republicans have
talked themselves out on the foolish-
ness of their opponents in ratifying
the Chicago platform, they are be-
ginning to discover that this was
really the strongest thing that could
have been done, and to take note of
their own weaknesses. For instance,
Ex-President Harrison has an-
nounced in an interview thit Indi-
ana is doubtful and that he shouldn't
be surprised to see it go Democratic
on the imperialism issue. Democrats
would be greatly surprised if it did
anything else, but that is. not the.
question now. The New York tri-
bune, that staunch defender of Re-
publican principles, has also stirred
up something very akin' to conster-
nation in the inner circles of the party
management, by giving the deliber-
ate opinion that the great battles of
this year's campaign. are to be fought
in the States of. New York, Ohio,
Illinois. Indiana, Kentucky, Mary-
land, Minnesota and Michigan. The
fact that the. Tribune seriously dis-
cusses the doubtfulnest of New York,
Ohio, Minnesota, Michigan and Illi-
nois, certainly should be encouraging
to the D mocrats.
The administration's treatment of
the Cuban scandal, besides being a

stance, here is Neeley, of whose guilt
no one has the least doubt, living in
this country on the fat of the land,
while the government lawyers post-
pone and postpone the proceedings
for his extradition. On the other
hand, there is Mr. Rich, who is de-
tained in Cuba because his evidence

p erchance in the distant future de
taken back to havana for trial; ou
of a position because of his iinfortu-'

embezzlers, his former fellow-citizen
of Muncie; unable to obtain employ-
ment because the authorities un-
truthfully heralded far and wide that

Rich is reduced to hard straits in-
deed.-And this is the fate of the
one man in the Cuban postal outfit '"
who promptly made a clean breast of
all he knew when the rottenness in
the department of posts was exposed.

democraticc leaders are still dis-
SCUssmng the advisability of having a.
tio-tailed ticket, with the chances
in fayor of the adoption of that
.dt1qd of campaign. The stand of
the Nebraska populists and the fus-
ion arranged, is taken as almost con-
clusive proof that this plan will be
a~lopted. According to this, there
will be two and perhaps three tickets
in Kansas, Nebraska, Dakota, Idaho
and 'other States where the populists
or- silver Republicans are strong. The
eame electors, part Populist, part
Democrats and part Silver Republi-
cans, are to be on both tickets. Each
ticket is to bear the separate emblem
of its respective party, and one of
them names of Bryan and Steven-
son, another those of Bryan and
Towne, so that the Populists may be
gratified by having their own ticket.
They can make their own campaign
and need not be asked to vote the
Democratic ticket, which many of
them might refuse to do. When the
ballots are counted the electors, be-
* ing the same, will receive credit for
all the votes for both tickets, and
then Towne can withdraw and ask
his electors to vote for Stevenson,
and he himself will receive a cabinet
post. A third ticket in many States
may be one with a separate emblem
for the Silver Republicans at its
head, but having the same electors
as the other two.
The ridiculous yarn that a plot to
assassinate President McKinley had
been discovered and thwarted by the
Republican campaign managers, was
the sources of considerable amuse-
ment in Washington official circles.

It was pointed out that it. was rather
remarkable that such a plot should
have been thwarted and. the only
parties informed of it were the
campaign managers. -It.would seem
that if Mr. KcKinley's life were
threatened, the police, and, above all,
the Secret Service, would be in-
forrred of the plot and steps taken
to avert .hc- danger. The fact that
Chief Wilkie, of the Secret Service,
knew nothing of the alleged plot
until he read of it in the papers, is
taken as sufficient evidence that none
RIeports to the State Department
say that France has 16,419,724 acres
sown in wheat, which will yield
297,854,244 bushels. This is a de-
crease of 68,088,000 bushels com-
pared with last year, the falling off
being ascribed to the severe winter.
The probable production of rye will
be 62,717,568 bushels, as against
68,237,794 last year.

out one match-the one that has the
flattest surface-and then place six of
the other matches about one-fourth
each across the first one, each of the
six being parallel to each other and the
thickness of a match distant from each
other. Next place six other matches
one-fourth each across the first match,
but from the other ride, all parallel and
in the spaces left by the arrangement
of the first six matches. Now take the
fourteenth match, lay it over the 12
matches. where they intersect, and by
carefully lifting match No; 1 and hold-
ing match No. 14 in place you will ac-
complish without difficulty the feat.-

medals. Large birds are made to swil
low roughly stamped coins with their
image of Tiberius or Caligula. After
awhile the animals give off again thet
- coins, upon which meanwhile an ap

When your ston'ach begins to trouble
you. it ne"ds help. The help it needs is
to digest your food. and, until it gets it,
you won't have any peace. Stomach
trouble is very distressing,very obstinate,
very dangerous. Many of the most dan-
gerous diseases begin with simple indi-
gestion. The reason is that indigestion
(not-digestion, not-nourihhment) weak-
ens the system and allows disease germs
to attack it. The antidote is Shaker Di-
gestive Cordial, strength ening, nourish-
ing. cut a'ive. It cures iniigestion and
renews strength and health. It does this
by strengthening the stomach, by help-
ing it to digest your food. It nourishes
you. Shaker Digestive Cordial is made
of pure herbs, plants and wine. is per-
fectly harmless and will certainly cure
all genuine stomach trouble. Sold by

The Dentist I PoliHt ,e
A North Side dentist Is sure to be call-
ed "a mean man" by some of his wo-
men patrons when they learn of the
*trick he has practiced upon them. It
happens sometimes that even a rubber
dam will not stop the flow of woman's
speech, and although the dentist, being
a young man, is not averse to a little
"pleasant talk" now and then with a
patient, yet if she persists in telling
him her personal or domestic history
during the filling of a tooth, hindering
the work, while other patients wait in
the anteroom, it's a little trying to his
nerves and temper. The doctor is a po-
lite man; he does not ask the woman
to stop talking, but says gently:
"Open your mouth, please."
There is silence for a few moments,
when the chatter begins again.
"Open wider, please," says the den
tist, more. -Persuasively than before,
and the work goes on rapidly enough
until, the patiqen seeing her opportuni-
ty starts in 'again where she had left*
off in the. tale of everyday woes. The
clock strikes- the hour of the" next ap-
pointment. The dentist. seizes the most
terrible of all his Instruments, his look
.becomes threatening.and his voice too:
"Please, now, -Qpen your mouth very
wide." The ruse succeeds, and the
startled put unsuspecting woman
*sfretches'-her mouth into an abysmal
Itwn" that precludes the possibility of
.even a whisper. -

says the (i.evelahd .Leader, when the
nooks and homers were not filled with
youngsters who had come in free.
One stoty. of this .srt was told by
(iptain George J. Grammer. At the
time o'f the occurrence Grammer, who
lived in Zanesville, 0., was standing
one afternoon with a' crowd of other
* boys looking longingly, into the tent,
but not having the price of admission.
It was Mr. Rice's custom to stand at
.the door until the first grand entry .of
*lthe circus people, when he would
leave. On this. occasion he saw the
hungry look-.o Jthe faces .of the boys
and called them around him. "You

want to go in, don't you, boys?'
"Bet your life!" shouted back the
"I'll tell you what. All the boys who
are back here in ten minutes with clean
faces and hands get in."
The words were hardly out- of his
mouth before there was a dash. for
the Muskingum river, and in less than
seven minutes 200 clean faces and
hands came back to the tent. The
boys went inside with a rush.

On Reading Alo&d.
It !s a distinct loss that reading is so
badly taught and that so few people
know anything about the magic of the
I.ets In their use of sound. We read
almost exclsively with the eye, al-
though poetry is primarily intended-
for the ear. Shakespeare wrote almost
exclusively for the ear, and we remain
unmoved by the wonderful vibration
of his great passages until we hear
Poetry ought always to be heard first
and read afterward. If the best of
Browning is sympathetically and intel-
ligently interpreted by the voice, the
much discussed obscurity Is not in evi-
dence. Many people find, for instance,
a little difficulty in getting' the clear
and full significance of "The Portrait
of the Last Duchess" when they read
it for the first time, but It fastens itself
Instantly on the imagination if It is
well read.
A good deal of time now devoted to
commentaries and text study- might
profitably be given to reading the text
aloud without note or comment. A
Work 'of art slowly discloses its full
meaning, .and familiarity .with it Is the

The Dentilt -U Polite.
A North Side dentist is sure to be call-
ed "a mean man" by some of his wo-
men patrons when they learn of the
'trick he has practiced upon them. It
happens sometimes that even a rubber
dam will not stop the flow'of woman's
speech, and although the dentist, being
a young man, is not averse to a little
"pleasant talk" now and then with a
patient, yet if she persists in telling
him her personal or domestic history
during the filling of a tooth, hindering
the work, while other patients wait in
the anteroom, it's a little trying to his
nerves and temper. The doctor is a po-
lite man; he does not ask the woman
to stop talking, but says gently:
"Open your mouth, please."
There is silence for a few moments,
when the chatter begins again.
"Open wider, please," says- the den, .
tist, more, -persuasively than before,
and the work goes on rapidly Lenough
until, the patiqntc seeing her opportuni-
ty starts in 'again where she had left*
off in the, tale of everyday woes. The
clock strikes- the hour of the' next ap-
poiDntment The dentist. seizes the most
terrible of all his Instruments, his look
.becomes threatening.and his voice too:
"Please, now, -Qpen your mouth very
wide." The ruse succeeds, and the
startled. jut unsuspecting woman
s etches'-her mouth into an abysmal
"ywn that precludes the possibility of
even a whisper. -

SThe* Bes'Gt In.
The late Dan Bice, he famous circus
man, was fond of bbys. and always
wanted to see a lot of them'in his audi-
ence. HRe never gave a performance.
says the Olevelahd. Leader, when the
nooks and forners were not filled with
youngsters- ho had come in free.
One story. of this:'sort was told by
Captain George J. Grammer. At the
time of the oc.urreice. Grammer, who
Sliced in -Zanesile, 0., was standing
one afternoon' with a! crowd of other
loy; looking longingly, into the tent.
but not having the price of admission.
It was Mr. Rice's custom to stand at
.the door until the first grand entry .of
'the circus people, when he would
leave. On this: occasion he saw the
hungry look on the faces .of the boys
and called them around him. "You
want to go in, don't you, boys?"
"Bet your life!" shouted back the
"I'll tell you what. All the boys who
are back here In ten minutes with clean
faces and hands get in."
The words were hardly out- of his
mouth before there was a dash for
the Muskingum river, and in less than
seven minutes 200 clean faces and
hands came back to the tent. The
boys went inside with a rush.

Wakulla County, Fla.-Editor
Tallahass6ean: Being an old Dem-
S'orat and" learning incidentally- that
the action of. the Committee on
Credentials (at Jacksonville) was
political, will you kindly, if in your
provence, explain what is politic?
The term is -subject to a great
many constructions, and the mean-
ing may be gleaned from the charas-
ter of the man who uses it or the
circumstancesiuiAder which it is used.
The new Century Dictionary-the
standard authority of the present
day-seems to recognize this, hence
it divides the.definition under several
different heads,' iz:

(1) Of or pertaining to politics, bi
the science of government; having
to do with politics. (2) Of or per-
taining to civil as distinguished from
religious or military affairs; civil; po-
litical. (3) Of or pertaining to
officers of the State; .official; State.
(4) That which constitutes the State;
consisting of citizens: as, the politic
(that is, the whole body of the peo-
ple as constituting a State). (5)
Existing by or for the State; popu-
lar, constitutional. (6) In keeping
with policy; wise; prudent; fit; proper;,
expedient; applied to actions, meas-
ures, etc. (7) Characterized by
worldly wisdom or'craftiness; subtle;
crafty; scheming; cunning; artful: ap-
.plied to persons or their devices: as,
a politic prince.. .
Like a constitution. which permits
all sorts of construction; a bible
which permits all sorts of religion, or
a religion which permits all sorts of
worldly pursuits after happiness, the
above seems broad enough for al-
most -anything under the sun. But
the committee mentioned by our
correspondent may have been
guided by the Standard Dictionary's
definition which, if anything, is more
to the point. It is as follows:
(1) Sagacious in devising and car-
rying out a plan; pursuing one's ends
with prudence rather than with prin-
ciple; given to policy; .thoughtful.of
S new's own interests; crafty; artful.
(2) Wisely adapted to attaining an
end; prudently devised and executed;

However that may be, the situa-
ion is a grave one. According
to the most authentic reports
all the foreign. legations-in-
cluding the American and English-
have been destroyed and the repre-
sentatives of the power put to death
in the most. frightful and horrible
manner. The small relief forces"
sent by the powers have suffered
!earfully and are in danger of anni-
hilation. -
. All this calls for immediate action.
The. tardiness of the' powers-,-this'
country included-can hardly be ex-
plained. It is not necessary nor wise
to declare war against the Chinese.
government. But to send a few
thousand troops to cope with three
and a half million people, most of
them hostile, seems the heighth of
foolishness. It does seem that war
is necessary-then why not make it
swift, decessive and short?

Feeling in Washington, and in the
East generally, says a correspondent,
in regard to the De noeratic platform
seems to have ishifted- as rapidly as
it did in Kansas City. when the crisis
came. There. is no denying that
when the news was first flashed here
that Bryan had'.ominated the con-
vention and had forced the delegates
to endorse silver against the wishes.
of a majority of them, the Democrats
in this city felt disheartened.
Twenty-four hours later, they realized
that Bryan was right. and that any
faintest measure that could be.twisted
into a retreat from silver would have'
damaged -the party more than- any
possible affirmation. T'ey realized
that &ny hesitancy would expose
Bryan to a charge of demagogism
and to that of longing for victory at
any price, which would be fearfully
damaging in the campaign. They
realized, too, that it would not be
wise politically to risk alienating any
of the six and a half million votes
cast for the ticket in 1896 in the hope
of gaining a few hundred thousand
cast for the gold Democratic ticket
in that year. in short, by Friday
morning, Democrats here had made
up their minds that Bryan had saved
the party from a frightful mistake
into which they had been nearly al-

the requiremers- of each case 'may
demand, for this is a day and time
when "good politics," or, to be "pol-
itic;as the dictionaries would pat t,
is the balm for all .deeds of misrepre-
sentation in political gatherings.
Shakespeare said. "I have been
politic with "my friend, smooth with
my enemy." Browneon in The "Con-
vert" declares, "almost the only
blunders I ever committed in my life
were committed when I studied to be
politic, and prided myself on my:
diplomacy." They- had probably
both learned that all politics were not
good politics, and were relieving their
consciences of a burden they had
been carrying.
The anti-foreign movement in
China has now reached that stage
when it can -no longer bear any other
name than a revolution. The impe.
rial government forces are evidently
inadequate to cope with the waring
elements, and in fact the powers have
been appealed to for assistance. Un-
der such circumstances the latter are
sending troops. But it is a slow
business, and there is no telling what
the situation will be by the. time a
hundred thousand foreign troops are
landed upon Chinese soil. It ma' be
that by that time the imperial troops
will have joined the "boxers" and
that the combined forces of the Ce-
lestial Empire will have to be coped

The Rellgiku'Census.
The Director of the census has
.received many letters asking whether
the religious statistics of popila.
tion are to be.taken in the' present
census, and if not, why hot? TThe
subject has also been. disqussed to a
limited the religious news-
papers of the country..-- For these
reasons it has been" thought advisable
to publish the following'authoritative
statement on .the hole subject; "
A- very..-general misapprehension
seems to exist regarding the methods
by whreh the figures were obtained
in 1890 for the volume .on te statis-
ties of churches. They were not pro-
cured through the enumerators. In
an official circular, published .ctober
1, 1889, it was said that "'This infor-
mationi can not be gathered. by the
enumerators. *" It is neces-
sary, therefore, to make church statis-
tics. a special inquiry, and they must
be gathered chiefly by schedules
placed in the hands of some compe-
-tent person in each of the minor
ecclesiastical subdivisions of the va-
rious churches."
In exact conformity with the lan-
guage of this circular, schedules were
prepared.-containing a line for each
"organization" reported, including
churches without pastors, missions or
stations; chapels, meetings and socie-
ties. The queIons asked related to
the character f edifices occupied,
their seating paucityy their value,
and the num.r of communicants or
church members. In the instructions
for filing. schedules the word
"communica was defined to em.
brace 'all, -wit4hout. distintion of sex
wrho are privileged to participate in
the ordinance of communion in de.
nominations which observe it, and al
members in other denominations.'
In all denominations having ecclesi
astical systems which group local
churches into associations, confer.
ences, presbyteries, or dioceses,
the secretaries or clerks of the
divisions were requested t(
furnish the information desired; ii

object to TMcKinleyism without be-
ing willing to go over to the Demo-
crats, will take refuge in the Prohi-
bition fold, .and by so doing may
turn over several doubtful Stat.,to-
Bryan. Thus the party enabled the
Democrats to elect Mr. Cleveland ip
1884, when John P. St. John ie.
ceived 151,809 votes, fifteen times as
many as the Prohibition party had
ever polled before. In 1888,
the party swelled its vote to 249,907.
In 1892 there was a further gain.
But in 1896 the party split. on the
silver issue, and both factions, sup-
porting separate Presidential tickets.,
polled only 146,896 votes, a failing
off of 60 per cent. from high-water
mark. This year there is a'marked
increase of animosity ,toward -the
Republican party by reason of the
failure of the scheme to abolish the
army canteen. The President has
been virulently assailed by a number
of clergymen of his own church>.
They seem to be more vindictive
toward him than they were toward
Mr. Blaine, and hope to repeat this
year the exploit of 1884, when they
gave the electoral vote of the Empire
State to Mr. Cleveland.

can be-obtinedthrough the:agency
of the census enumerators, while tlhe
second ,clu&a subjects whic an
be dealt with without the aid'of:the
en werators, by correspondence, or.
by the use of special agents. .The
seventh section of the Act estricts
th first group to. "inquires relating
toj he population, to mortality, to
theproducts of agriculture, and of
manufacturing and miehanical estab- -
lishmenhts" The reports on these
subjects are- to be "published not
later than July 1, 19-4." The eighth
section provides that "ifter the com-
pletion and return of the enumera-
tion and of the work upon the
schedules relating to the products of
agriculture, and to manufacturing
and mechanical establishments pro-
vided for in section 7 of this Act,"
that is, after July 1, 1902, "the Di-
rector of the Census is hereby au-
thorized to collect statistics relating
to" several subjects specified, of
which one reads: "to religious
bodies." Under the language of
'this section nothing can be done, ex-
cept in a preparatory way, with ref-
erence to the collection of religious
statistics for the ensuing two years.
It will be noted that at the expira-
tion of that time the Director is
"authorized," not required, to collect
these special statistics; so that the
question whether they shall be col-
lected or not is entirely within his
official discretion.
The value of a religious census of
the population of the United States is
somewhat problematical. The publica-
tion of the volume in which the stat-
istics of churches are contained has
exerted, so far as can be judged, no
appreciable influence upon the relig-
ious thought or life of the nation.
This is not because the work was not
well done. Probably no census- rex'
port has ever been more thorough or
accurate, within the essential limita-
tit. -s of the subject itself. It is a re-
port on "religious bodies," whether
Christian or non-Christian, including
the Vorshippers in Chinese temples.
Obvious, therefore, the word "com-
municants" does not apply to the
members of all these bodies. The
conditions of membership in the va-.
'rious bodies calling themselves Chris-
iian vary so indefinitely, that compar-
tsons, of denominational strength
based upon nominal' membership in
the several churches can not be other-
wise than misleading. There are re-
ligious denominations in which chil-
dren born of parents connected with
those organizations are- birthright
members of them, without baptism,
-confirmation, or any personal profes-
Ssion of religious faith. Admission to
other churches is by baptism and con-
firmatipn4r By baptism without con-
. firmacion, or by confirmation after
baptism- or-by profession of personal
belief in.the doctrines contained in a
particular cieed and a promise of
obedience to.the authority vested in
the -ecclesiasticab organization. In
comparing the statistics of member-
ship in one religious body with those.

Pensacola has been made one of
the most important cities in the
South by the construction of rail-

Press of that, city may therefore be
termed an expert opinion:
"Tallahassee is making an effort to
secure additional railroad facilities.
Pensacola would do well to pattern
after the Capital City in this respect.
The more railroads a city has, the
greater its volume of business."

that the rules contemplate or require
in the ex.ositioni of the evidence
upon which charges were predicaft
is that the bill of exceptions propF
shall correctly state, in connection
with every charge that hypothesizes
any given state of facts, the evidence
actually adduced -in the case that
tends to establishthe particular state
of facts hypoltesised in'such charge,
and this in as concise form as is
compatible with a just, fair and com-
plete test of the proposition as to
whether or not such charge was
warranted by the facts adduced in
evidence. The testimony adduced
in rebuttal or impeachment of the
evidence upon which any
charge was predicated has no
place in the exposition in the bill of
exceptions of the evidence upon
which such charge was actually pre-
dicated; neither should evidence be
stated in connection therewith that is
wholly foreign to the state of facts
hypothesised in the given charge. If
a charge is given, or requested and
refused, by a judge that hypothesises
a state of facts or a statement of fact
that there was no testimony tending
to prove, the fact should be stated in
the bill of exceptions that there was
no evid ce adduced tending to prove
the state facts or fact hypothesised
in such M e; or, if there is differ-
ference oftpinion as between coun-
sel and the judge as to the true ten-
dency of the proof conceived to be
supportive of any such charge, the
particular evidence itself thus con-
ceived to be supportive thereof
should be stated in the bill of excep-

determine the applicability of the

nency. and relevancy to the issue be-
ing tried, and there is other evidence
either admitted, or proffered and re-
jected, that will connect it with the
case and show its relevance and per-
tinence, such other connecting evi-
dence should be set forth in the bill
of exceptions so as to enable the ap-
pellate court fully and fairly to pass
upon the propriety or impropriety of
the admission or rejection thereof.

flash of lightning and a terrible crash
of nature's artillery startled every aoul

lence. Judge Culberson, like every-
body else, was deeply moved, but was
the first to recover. "That was God
Almighty, sir, calling this house to or-

tone, addressing the speaker. Then,
turning to his colleagues, he said, "Now
let us proceed to business like men."

The Roar of Battle.
The roar of the navy's four point

But more impressive by far than this

roared like a great hurricane at sea.

purpose of determining whether, in
view of the whole evidence in the
case exhibited thereby, any error
found is harmless. The bill of ex-
ceptions proper was designed to ex-
hibit all other questions in pais than
the sufficiency of the* evidence to
support the verdict, and should
in and of itself, without reference to
the evidentiary bill, fully,.fairly and
truly exhibit all pertinent matters
necessary to the proper consideration
and adjudication of the different as-
signments of error thereby ex-
pected to be maintained. The bill
of exceptions proper will never be
resorted to to. test the question of
the sufficiency of the evidence to
support the verdict, that question
being exclusively confined to a con-
sideration of the whole evidence as
set forth andl exhibited in and by the
evidentiary bill, regardless of tuchi
such parts or portions of the evi-
dence as may be exhibited in the bill
of exceptions proper for the expose
therein of other questions assigned
as error. While this is the distinct-
ive office of said two respective bills
of exception, that will in every case
govern and guide the appellate court
in the final consideration of cases on
their merits, and while the court
upon such final consideration will
not refer from one of such bills of
exception to the other in aid of, ex-
planatory of, or to supplement, or to
impeach any matter or question that,
under the rules, properly belongs ex-
clusively to either, except to deter-
mine from the evidentiary bill

sonably made, directly to test the
question of compliance. with the.
rules in the. makeup :J-.t..e bill of

disclose the fact that the bill of ex-
ceptions proper has been, m de up'in
its substance in patent violation qf
the rules, and in such manner as to
make that appear to be error which
may hot be error were the proper
matters set forth in such bill that the
rules contemplate it should contain,
and that have been omitted there-
from, and such evidentiary bill shows
could with truth and propriety have
been included therein. And upon
suoh preliminary motion the court
will not strike out the whole or any
part of the bill of exceptions proper,
when there are other questions prop-
erly presented thereby for adjudica-
tion, but upon such motion will ad-
judge in advance that it will not con-
sider, on the final determination of
the case, any assignment of error

set forth. (Carter, J, dissenting).
5. The well-established rule is
that every charge given' by the court
to the jury must be predicated upon
some testimony adduced in the case
tending to support the facts hypo-
thtesised in such charge. The de-
sign of the rules adopted' for the
preparation of bills of exception
proper in requiring a statement of
the evidence, or what the evidence
tended to prove in connection with
the charge predicated on such evi-
dence, was not for the purpose of
testing the truth of such evidence,
or as a test of the weight or pre-
ponderance of evidence, but solely.
for thepurpose of disclosing tothe
appellate court whether or not the

In 1310 we find the following Bow

ny loaves deficient in weight: Sarra
Foting, Christina Terrice, Godlyeva
Voting, Matilda de J3olingtone, Chris-

Pegges, Johanna de Countebrigge and
Isabella Pouveste. One wonders why
the husbands were not summoned. In
a similar case in 1316, when Agnes
Foting's bread was seized, it was "ad-
Judged that her bread should be for-
felted and given to the prisoners -in
Neugate because her husband did not
-come to avow (own) the bread." Are
we to assume that in the absence of the
husbands the bread was merely for-

Nature as s Armorerp.
There are few departments of hu-
man life where man has been so en-
tirely anticipated and at the same time
surpassed by the lower animals as in
the invention of armor.
His cunningest devices of the mailed
#st order were none of them original.
If you examine a fine and fully devel-
oped suit of plate armor in the form
which it assumed at its highest zenith
in the fifteenth century, you will fid
that the trunk and limbs were com-
pletely inclosed in a splendid fitting,
Jointed case of iron plates, all exqui-
sitely polished. The suit as a whole
was a triumphant product of the ar-
morer's art.
Yet if you look at a lobster's tail you
will see at a glance that all these clev-
er devices of man's im gaining had
been invented and patented long be-
fore by nature and that the elaborate
workmanship of the Plantagenet
craftsmen who cased knight and horse
for the battlefield or the tournament in
glistening metal was but a poor imita-
tion of the ineffable skill with which
the unheeded crustaceans of the time
protected every vulnerable portion of
their bodies from the assaults and at-
tacks of their submarine enemies.-

disliked by his officers, and, being ili

rines in the b rial service on the deck
over the captain's cabin by way of
cheering him up, the 'corporal giving
his orders in a loud voice thus: "The

The commander of a certain gunboat
used to -day. that, having no doctor on.

whenever any of his crew 'happened
to be sick he drew an imaginary line
across the man's stomach, and accord-

that line he gave him a dose out *of No.

There is a young man in th penelon
oeee who ie buylug& hoble on the
inanflment plan at ai tAwsonmwber
between this city and anymore, and
fhis dear little wife lives out -there. It
ts his wont to come in early of a morn-
.ng aid to 9o out again on the 530
taln when his day's work is done. 4
few days ago be met an old friend from
.fcgo and, yielding to the *wvties
* that old friend, he decided to spend
the .evening In town. He was so afraid
wife would feel hurt If she knew that
he had deliberately planned an even-
Ing's good time without counting her
in that he manfully resolved to deceive
her. Accordingly. as be. came away.
from the office he went to a* telegraph
office and sent this message to her::
"Unavoidably detained. Missed 5:30
train. Will be out later."
It was a great deal later when he
reached his. happy home. Wifie met
him at the door, and there was a look
In her eye that-every married man
learns to know and Instinctively to
"Did you get my message precious'
he asked as he kissed her tenderly,
holding his breath meanwhile as a pre-
cautionary measure.
"Yes, dear," she made answer, and
when a woman calls her husband
"dear" that way you can cut loose from
the weather bureau and prognosticate
a few things on your own hook. "Yes,
dear, I received your message. Here
it is."
There it was, sure enough. It was

do you more good than a sixweeks vaca-

Spandag of Her Remedy.
There is at least one woman in Ken*
wood who believes thoroughly in the
efficiency of prayer. About year agc
her husband engaged In a business
venture that looked rather uncertain.
But his wife had strong faih that it
would turn out well.
"Go ahead, John," she sail, "and let
us put our trust in the Lord. I pray
every night that we may have no rea-
son to regret the risk we are taking."
The affair seemed to turn out pretty
well right from the start. Handsome
dividends were paid all through the
summer and during the winter, and
great joy was In the home of this man
and the sharer of his fortunes.
But there came a turn about a month
ago. The business ceased to pay, and
,since then the fosses have been increas-
Ing every day. Nothing was. said about
it at the fireside around which so much,
happiness had centered during the last
yekr until the other day, when it was
suggested by the worried husband that
it would be :'ell to cut down expenses.
Questions followed, as a matter of
course, and then It had to be confessed
that the business was not going well.
"Dear me!" exclaimed the distressed
woman when all the truth had been re-
vealed to her. "I must begin praylthg
again tonight!" Chicago Times-Her-
A Famous London Tavern.
The Mermnid was the name of a fa-
mous London tavern frequented by
noted literary men and actors during
the reign of Queen Elizabeth. All the
wit and talent of the time assembled
there for convivial enjoyment. Au-
thors have made it the scene of great
mind combats between such men as
Shakespeare. Ben Jonson, Beaumont,
Fletcher, Selden, Carew, Donne and
others of pZierential memory. It was
the gathering place. of the celebrated
Mermaid club. the origin of which Is
ascribed to Sir Walter Raleigh.--The
Mermaid tavern was located in Bread
street and was handily reached from
three thoroughfares, so that it has been
often referred to In various ways. The
Mermaid in Bread street, the Mermaid
in Friday street and the Mermaid in
Cheap street were, however, all one
and the. same. It was the nearest to'
Bread -street The Mermaid Was. de-
stroted in the great London fire. Therg
were other Mermaid tavera3, one in
Cheapside and another in Corhlll, but-
they had no such associations a clung
to that of Bread street.
