This result was in a great measure
due to the quickness of perception,
the fairness of judgment, and the
tactful courtesy of the diftingniabe4
gentleman now presiding over this
caucus, who, with equal credit to him-
self and those who made the choice,
was elected the president of our body
two years ago. Deliberative bodies
are in one particular like the sea. To-
day from its placid and unruffled sur-
face may be reflected the peaceful
asure of an unclouded sky, and a nov-
ice may be safely trusted at the wheel
to watch the idle canvass hanging
listless by the yards, while to-morrow

Johns moved that Senator Adams be
elected chairman of the caucus, whica
was agreed to. Mr. T. J. Appleyard
was then elected secretary. After
thanking the caucus, Senator Adams
announced that the order of business
would be proceeded with. First in or-
der was the nomination for a Presi-
dent of the Senate. Senator Myers of
Leon was recognized and nominated
Senator Thomas Palmer in the fol-
lowing words:

with which he discharged the duti
of that most arduous and trying posi-q
tion I, therefo with full confidence
that 'we will m ke no mistake in the
choice, present to your consideration

Senator Cars n then was recognizes
and said:

To Put Everything In Order--No Mort.
Trouble Anticipated.

Sunday night at the hotels, Monday
night at the Legislative caucus anec-
Tuesday night following Tallahassee'"
lighting system (gas) was severely
criticised by members of the Legis-
lature and those who came here tc
witness the assembling of that body-
and a right good reason they had tc
complain, too, for Monday night tht
lights went out entirely, and the other
nights were not much better.
For the information of those unfa-
milfkr with the condition of things
we desire to state that Tallahassee ie
no. satisfied with the present system
of lighting, and is doing all she pos-
sibly can to remedy it Our people
have voted to bond the city for $16.-
000 to be used in putting in an up-to-
date electric plant But the Gas Com-
pany, having a charter covering elec-
tric lights also, applied to the Circuit
Court for an injunction. The city
won in the Circuit Court and the gaF
people appealed to the Supreme Couri
of the United States, where the -matter
is now tied up and perhaps will be foi
nearly a year yet.
The city is sure Lo wit as soon at-
the latter court reaches the case, and
then work will commence at once, for
the bonds are alrea..y sold and thr
money will be forthcoming as soon az
it is needed. In the mean time we wild
have to do the best we can with gas.
Believing tha the devil should have
h s dues, we wish to further say, how-
ever, that the trouble this week wa!-
unaviodable. All the epxerienced help
was i.auled off to the pest house witL
small pox one day last week, and
Supt. Spencer was therefore compelleG-
to remain on duty until broken down
.asurday night while he was taking
little rest the inexperienced help fillet:
the tanks and mains-with bad gas. rie
telegraphed to Philadelphia headquar-
ters for a good man and thinks that
from now on he will oe able to keet
good gas.

= 'or faeie0 receive copy in time.for publi.
abdon. -Publi-her.
In this day of newspapers and peri-
appreciate fully the educative value of
these necessities of our age and use
them freely. How is a teacher of a
country school when she is principal,
first assistant and primary teacher, all
in one, with scarce time enough to get
through with the daily routine, to find
time to use newspapers in school or
encourage their use in the home? In
answer I offer the following sugges-
Place a table at some convenient
place in the school room where the
periodicals you .take are placed as soon
as you have read them and where
pupils may place those they bring
from home. Urge pupils to bring papers
to contribute to the reading table.
Have every paper marked with name of
contributor, and if wanted again,
marked "to be returned," and be care-
ful to see that it is returned after a
reasonable time.
In teaching Geography and History,
.as often as possible, mention some in-
.,ormation that may be gained from
.some article to be found in a paper on
the table, about some mineral, vege-
table. manufactured produce, inven-
tion, description of a place, sketch of
prominent person, or something else
interesting, not found in the text-book
about something directly or indirectly
referred to in the lesson. Give but a
hint of what the information is and
.suggest that the article be read. Allow
the papers to be taken from the table
and read at seats on assurance that
lesson has been prepared or that read-
ing will not be allowed to interfere
with its preparation. In this way those
right pupils who learn their lessons
before the slow ones do, can often be
kept out of mischief. Allow pupils to
take papers home to be brought back
the next day; they will have more time
at night to read, and parents and older
brothers and sisters will get the bene-
fit of your table and will take an inter-
est therein. Give ten minutes once a
week to reading a "current event."
Suggest or select pieces to read and
drill juveniles in reading them in pre-
paring for their exercise at first, till
they -understand what and how to
.select for themselves. Use care in get-
ting pieces that are short and interest-
ing, and do- not get discouraged if
some fail to take part.
Find what papers are being taken in
the homes of your pupils, suggest to
parents some that may be taken, and
be prepared to show why it will be an

1. Dying declaration of a person

circumstances that caused death, in
cases where the death of the declarant
is the subject of investigation, are ad-
to thissible in evidence when the declar-
ant is in extremity, believes death is
imminent and is without hope of re-
covery; and the circumstances under
which the declarations are made
should be shown in order that the
court may deterntine whether or not
they are proper to go to t he jury as
"dying declarations."

are made in response to questions
asked the declarant, is no ground for
excluding them, nor is it material, as
to their admissibility, that the ques-
tions are omitted and the answers only
given when they are reduced to writ-
ing, read over and signed by declar-
3. It is not error to deny a motion
to exclude or strike out a statement
offered as a dying declaration when a
portion sought to be excluded is ad-
missible, though another portion may
be objectionable. The proper practice
in such a case is to confine the objec-
tion to the inadmissible portion.
4. In considering exceptions to por-
tions of charges they should, all bear-
ing on the subject, be considered in
connection with each other.
5. The correctness of a charge on
the subject of murder in the first de-
gree becomes immaterial where the
jury rejects entirely the theory of the
case presented by the charge and ren-
der a verdict for manslaughter.
6. It is proper to refuse requests
based upon a state of facts not show

7. When the entire scope of request
to charge has been covered by charge
given, it is not error for the court t<
refuse to repeat the charges in sub
stance though differing in phraseology

tions is that "the physical or mental
condition or appearance of a person,
or his manner, habit or conduct, may
be proved by the opinion of an ordin-
ary witness, founded on observation."
"An inference necessarily involving cer-
tain facts may be stated without the
facts, the inference being an equiva-
lent to a specification of the facts; but
when the fact& are not necessarily in-
volved in the inference, then the facts
must be stated. In other words, when
the opinion is a mere short-hand rend-
ering of the facts, then the opinion can
be given. Opinion so far as it consists
of a statement of an effect produced
on the mind becomes primary evi-
dence, hence admissable whenever a
condition of things is such that it can
not be reproduced and made palpable
in the concrete to the jury."
4. Where part of a witness' answer
to a question is admissible and part
inadmissible a motion to strike such
answer is properly refused unless it
is confined specifically to the inad-
missible part of such answer.
5. Verdicts in criminal cases should
be certain and impart a definite mean-
ing, free from ambiguity. Any words
that convey, beyond reasonable doubt,
the meaning and intention of the jury
are sufficient, and all fair intendments
should be made to sustain them. If
the intention is clearly manifested,
bad spelling or faulty grammar will
not vitiate the verdict.

"The blood is the life." Science has
never gone beyond that simple statemer t
of scripture. But it has illuminated that
statement and given it a meaning ever
broadening with the increasing breadth
of-knowledge. When the blood is "'bad"
or impure it is not alone the body which
suffers through disease. The brain is
also clouded, thie mind and judgment
are affected, and many an evil deed or
impure thought may be directly traced
to the impurity of the blooi. No one
can have a wholesome and pure life un-
less the blood is pure. Foul blood can
be made pure by the use of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery. When the
blood is pure, body and brain are alite
healthy and life becomes a daily happi-

Constitutional law-Curative acts-
Municipal bonds for public lighting
1. Under the provisions of Section
8, of Article VIII of the Florida Con-
stitution of 1885, the Legislature has
the power to authorize municipal cor-
porations, through their properly con-
stituted corporate authorities, to erect
and own electric light plants for sup-
plying light to their citizens or in-
habitants, and to issue and sell bonds
for such purpose, either with or with-
out the sanction of their individual
citizens or taxpayers as expressed
through an election.
2. The rule in respect to statutes
curing defects in legal proceedings,
where they amount to mere irregular-
ities, not extending to matters of jur-
isdiction, and in the absence of consti-
tutional limitations is that "if the
thing wanting, or which failed to be
done, and which constitutes the defects
in the proceeding, is something the ne-
cessity for which the Legislature
right have dispensed with by prior
statute, then it is not beyond the
power of the Legislature to dispense
with it by subsequent statute. And if
the irregularity consists in doing some
act, or in the mode or manner ol doing I
some act, which the Legislature might
have made immaterial by prior law, i
it is equally competent to imakd the
same immaterial by a subsequent law."
j 3. The force or validity orf a cura-
itive act, enacted subsequently to the
institution of a suit based upon the
defects and irregularities intended to
be cured by such act, but. prior to
judgment in such suit, it not affected
by such suit.
4. Special or local legislation af-
fecting cities and towns under Section
8 of Article VIII of the Constitution
of 1885, is not controlled by the pro-
viso to section 21 of article III, but
may be enacted at any session of the
Legislature, and without the notice re-
quired by such proviso.
5. Where the legislative authority
to a municipality, and the municipal
ordinance passed in pursuance there-
of, to issue city bonds, confines the
place of payment of the interest cou-
pons of such bonds to a specific place,
it is a material variance and depart-
ure from the authority conferred to
issue bonds providing for the pay-
ment of their interest coupons at any
other place than the one so specified,
and in such a case it is proper to re-
strain the issue so proposed.

two up town. The clientele of the
'down town places. is above suspicion as
a rule. Chinese drop in for their,
and dwellers from up town conwe either
from curiosity or because thiy have
learned to like good Chinese cooking.
Up town the bills of fare-are more linlf-

ebFiese Restaurants There Tolerate
a Pree and Easy Etiquette, and Ev-
erybody Does Just About as He or
SSbe Pleases.
In the last few years a surprisingly
large number of Chinese restaurants
lave made their appearance in up town
distrlets in Ne* York. The tawdry
outward decorations of red and blue
lights and huge gilt Chinese characters
are in every case the same. The same,
too, are the unattractive entrances, the
walls decorated with colored pictures
Of pretty Chinese girls and marvelous
specimens of landscApes, the little ta-
bles covered with white oilcloth, the-
general dilapidation &i the establish-
ment. Nothing about them seems at-
tractive, and yet these places thrive,
4nd their number increases with aston-
fphinp rapidity. The reason is not far
iD seek if one is at all familiar with the
facts. There are several characteris-
ties of the Chinese restaurant which
reconimme. it highly to certain classes
and seem ti indicate that its popularity
is noI ;a !ere fAid.
.In th- .first Ihlace it should be under-
st r':! thant most of these places are
r;!i;v v.;:-t '.:, ;ire supposed to be,
e*'i,, :' ses carried on under Chinese
il:i.- "'i;:"eii. Thle cooks are invaria-
bl; tr:', i'(!cstials, and in only a few
-case:,s .e thel -proprietors Americans.
Thle ':).;( 1 is proealred. therefore., accord-
ing to t::, A;:ost approved methods of
the iii' I,,e Kingdom, with the result
that in cheapness and savoriness (if
you like it) it can easily outclass simi-
lar places run by American cooks. The
Chinese is a master of the art of mak-
ing palatable dishes out of next to
nothing or rather a little of everything.
Not even the French cook can rival
him. -The insipidity of cheap chop-
houses and'the sameness of the dairy
lunch counters are thus escaped by
frequenters of these restaurants. More-
over, in spite of appearances the food
is prepared in an extremely cleanly
manner. No one is debarred from en-
tering the kitchen, and a visit thither
sends one back with renewed appetite
to the untidy eating room. So many
who while possessed of a small share
of this world's goods still affect "sport-
iness" frequent the restaurant for its
cheapness and grow to enjoy the highly
flavored dishes.
There' is also a free and easy atmos-
phere about the Chinese eating house
which attracts many would ble "loie-
mians" as well as a goodly share of a
class below the lowest grades of the
city's many graded Bohemia. Visitors
loll about and talk and laugh ioidily
When the waiter is wanted, son, one,
emits a shrill yell which brings an :in-
swering whoop from the kitclbn. fol-
lowed sooner or later by a little ('hi-
nese at a jog trot. Any one who feels
like it may stroll into the kitchen and
try a little pigeon English on the cook.
The proprietor will teach anybody to
use the chopsticks and roar with laugh-
ter over the failures of thle novice. Ev-
erybody does as lie or she pleases with-
in certain very elastic bounds. The
limit is reached sooner in some places
than in others, for while seine of the
houses are before midnight at least
perfectly well conducted otlei^ are of
more thIan questionable respectability.
It is curious and interesting to note
that under Anierican management the
tone of these places is lower than when
the C(hinese are in sole control.
These new up town hplnes are not so
good, either in a moral or a culinary
way, as those down in ('hinatown. It
is usual to sp'";k as if Mott and 'Pell
streets' were the city's sink of iniquity.

The Deelsion That Was Rendered by
a Basuto Solomon.
Law is a complicated thing, and
some of Its decisions seem not to be
founded in equity. Probably most
readers will pass that criticism upon
the case recorded below:
Basutoland, being broken and moun-
tainous, was until recently the resort
-of lions, leopards and other wild anil
mals. Now. however, the hillsides
which were once the resort of these
savage creatures are the pasture
grounds of tens of thousands of cattle.
Nearly all dangerous animals have
been driven away from Basutoland.
but not long ago a leopard appeared(
on the outskirts of a village. The
aninial soon became as badly frighten
ed as the villagers :nUld sought s:tfety
in fli.ght.

Now came a question of .law. ly

claimants--either the man who speared
the leopard or the man who held it so
that it was possible to spear it or their
man who, being warned by the bark-
ing of his dog. tirst discovered the
animal in the village.
The Ilasuto Solomon decided the
case as follows: lihe man who speared
it could not have done so but for lie

Where Misery. Squalor, Hamner and
Cold Rule In Newfouadland.
Misery, squalor and wretchedness,
accentuated by "an almost ceaseless
struggle with hunger and cold, are the
portion of the inhabitants of the
"North Shore," in Newfoundland.
Their little hamlets are perched in the
rifts in the almost unbroken hills, and
the fierce storms sweep the surface
almost to their doorsteps, while for
seven months of the year their coast
is blockaded with ice and they are cut
off from all communication with the
outside world.
The only industry is codtishing. and
cod is the sole medium of exchange.
The people rarely see money, and bar-
ter is the system of trading, a quintal
of cod being the unit of valh". The

plied by the itinerant trider, his
schooner being laden with provisions,
clothing and fishing appliances. Thus
have these people lived for generations.
They are ignorant. for the nieans of
education are nonexistent, the children
being content with what satisfied their
fathers. The connmoH objects of every-
day life are unknown to them. They
have neither horses nor cattle. Only
a few of the older folk who have ven-
tured south have any knowledge of
these things.
There are no roads and therefore no:
vehicles. Travel is by boat during;
the snuniner iiand over the ice floes dur-
ing the rest of the year. The few let-
ters for the clergy and others who cn l
read are conveyed to the settlentii.

the another replied, "then you will
know how to sing."
The rain came and glued the little
bird's wings together.
"I shall never be able to fly or sing,"
it wailed.
Then of a sudden it began to blink
its eyes, for a glorious light lad spread
over the world, catching every leaf
and twig and blade of grass in tears
and putting a smile in every tear. The
baby bird's breast swelled, it did not

ground,.it did not know why.

An Ugly Stone Figure Worshiped by
Peasants of Brittany.
Even false religions die hard, and
there are reminders of all extinct
faiths still .existing in the world. One
of the most curious relics of paganismu
which are still worshiped in a Chris-
tian country is the gigantic black
stone figure of a woman which is to be
found in a forest of the district of
Morbihan, in Brittany.
It is known as the "Black Venus,"
but probably dates far back of the
time when the Greeks and lonmans.
worshiped that goddess. Antiquarians
assert that this ugly idol belongs to
the age of the serpent worshipers, one
of whose subterranean temples is in
the neighborhood. This would make
the figure far older than the Christian

couth woman, with a su!!c,-. angry
