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.

Not Quite So Bad as it Was

First Reported


Ti Deserve Swift and Severe Pun-

It seems from further developments
that the assault upon tne house of Mrs.
Mittie Moody, just across the line in
Wakulla county, near Woodville, was
not so bad as at first reported, though
it is still bad enough to shock the
whole community, and calls .or prompt
action to the end that justice may be
meted out to the guilty
That the community is aroused and
determined to do all they can for the
accomplishment of this end is further
evidenced oy the following letter re-
ceived from the county superintendent,
S. K. Causseaux, last Thursday even-

of the Talhasseean sent out that day:
"Crawfordville, Fla., June 20, 1901:

Manning's bedroom, and she no doubt

As to that particular point, however,
a near neighbor of Mrs. Moody has left
with the Tallahasseean the following
signed statement:
"The residence of Mrs. Mittie Moody

borne out by the statement of the

Weekly Resume of Important

Events at Buffalo,



Still Attracting Marked At.
tention from Visitors.

buffalo, June 22.-The Louisiana and
Texas rice kitchen is attracting a great
leal of attention on account of -he
beautiful wood that has been used in
its construction. The lumber was
snipped from Louisiana and Texas.
The panels and friezes arc remark-
ible specimens of tie curled golden
pane. The doors and window trim-
nings are of curled cypress. These
two ornamental woods are found in
grea, quantities throughout the bcate
of Louisiana. They are very much ad-
mired by people who have made a
specialty of ornamental wood work.
,me rice kitchen was inaugurated to-
lay with appropriate ceremonies. The
building .s in charge of Col. J. W.
k:ggleston, of Lake Charles, La.
The object of the establishment of
the kitchen is to show northern people
the virtues of rice as a fook. Dainty
dishes will be prepared during the ex-
position, and the various methods of
cooking rice will be explained by Miss
Ella Whitney Gould, o- New Orleans,
who is a graduate of cookery from one
of the best schools of New Yor,& City.
She will be assisted by Miss Carrie
Waterbury, of Boston. The cashier is
,rs. Clement, formerly cashier of the
Arcadia, National rank, of Crowley,
Louisiana, one of the greatest rice
centres in the world. There are at
least 200 different ways of cooking
rice.'and the management has printed
a very handsome and extensive menu
card which will be distributed through-
out the grounds. The demonstrationss
will be from 11 to .2 a. m., and meals
w..l be served from 1. to 2 and 5 to 7
p. m. A nominal price will be charged.
Prof. S. A. Knapp, who is president
of the Rice Association of America,
will oe here on the 12th of July to
spend several weeks at the exposition.
ne leaves here to go on a tour around
tne world in the interest of rice. The
southern Pacific Rainway has printed
250,000 cook books showing how to
prepare rice in every possible manner.
These will be distributed free from the
free, every dead beat who could get ad-
soup about whica our northern breth-
ren know not.iing whatever, wili be
the first dish served every day. Gumbo
fill is chicken soup thickened with rice,
gumbo -(okra) and nl. Fili is a spicy
aromatic ingredient made from the-
dried leaves of L.-e sassafras; which,.
when one becomes accustomed to it,
is one of the most fragrant and ap-
petizing spices known. Rice pan cakes,
rice fritters, rice puddings, rice ices
and similar dishes will be served in
regular restaurant style practically at
no appreciable cost to the customer.
Hundreds here who were at the Paris
hxposi,,Aon and know that $30.0b. was
spent on me corn kitchen regret very
much that corn was not exploited on
the basis of the rice kiLchen here.The
American corn kitcnen at Paris sup-
plied every pauper with his daily lunch
free. whereas by charging the small
price which Col. Eggleston demands
from those who are served in the rice
kitchen the attention of thrifty .rm-
ers and householders is secured.Served
free, every dead beat who could get ad-
mission to the grounds and every
pauper would be the first one to enter,
as was the case in Paris. The grea- y
increased production of rice will make
its purchase easy to the masses of the
people, wno are always ready to listen
to reason when an economic, healthful

"Amerlcans who go abroad must ex-

a young man who recently returned
from a brief European tour. "One ex-

but when the beggars follow you home
you can't help feeling a sort of admira-

"I went over on one of the Red Star
line boats, and the first thing I did on
landing at Antwerp was to go to the
cable office and send a message to my
mother announcing my safe arrival. I
paid the toll and thought no more
about It until I got home, when among
my mail I found a letter from the Ant-
werp operator, addressed in care of my
mother, saying that through an error
he had not charged me enough for my
cablegram sent on such and such a
date, that he had been obliged to pay
the difference out of his own pocket.
and as his salary was very small and
he had a large family and all that sort
of thing he felt sure I would reimburse
"The amount was a trifling one, and
I did send him a foreign money order.
I have since learned from experienced
travelers that I had been made the
victim of a systematic form of robbery

In October, 1864. Allatoona pass, a
defile In the mountains of Georgia, was
guarded by General Corse, with 1,500
men. It was a strong, strategic point,
and, moreover, 1,500,000 rations were
stored there. Fresich, the southern
general, with 6,000 men, attacked the
garrison and drove the defenders into
a small fort on the crest of the 0ill.
The battle was fierce. The northern
soldiers fell in such numbers that fur-
ther flrhting seemed folly.
But one of Corse's officers caught
sight of a white signal flag fluttering
in the breeze on the top of the Kene-

miles away. The signal was answered,

JOHN C. TRICE. Ed and Propr.
The Tallahasseean ha no desire to
take issue with Mr. Billingsley, whose
communication appears Jin this issue,
further than is necessary to defend the
city government agalut an unwar-
ranted attack. His let hah the tone
of fairness, and had ne ken the pre-
caution to investigate he other side
of the question (al. questions have two
sides), we do not eliev4 Mr. .Bilings-
ley would have written tis letter..

In the matter of food p-odud. It is
Impossible for the city to station in-
spectors throughout the corporate lim-
its to run down and inspect every
wagon or other vehicle bringing fresh
meats into the city fcr sale, hence
there must be a regular market place,
and all vendors of such meats must be
compelled to go there to.offer them for
The city government of Tallahassee
does not attempt to force these people
to sell their meats to the market men
whom Mr. Billingsley declares want
"the lion's share" of profits. On the
contrary, Section 3 of the market or-
dinance provides:
"That suitable stalls or tables shall
be provided in said market for the use
of persons bringing meat as do
not hire stalls by the month."
Only a reasonable-compensation is
required for these stalls or tables, such
as is necessary for keeping them up,
and only such instructions and safe-
guards are thrown around them as the
regular market men have to comply

load oi country hams to town this

want to know why na should be al-
lowed to sell one kind of meats on the
street and not the other. The answer is
simple. All honorable men' have to
bear their proportion of tmmation and
-hbardships for the protection of the
community against the unscrupulous
and dishonorable.
It is not probable that any person
will attempt to sell cured meats tha+
re unsound and unwholesome. it
they did the meats themselves would
give them away. But in 'the case 01
"fresh" meat, it is possible to put it off
*on untrained and unsuspecting city
-people after it becomes almost rotten.
Tho '*h hosell fresh meats, therefore,
must contribute to the expense of nrc.
hiding an inspector, and it would be
class legislation," denounced by all
people in all communities as unjust, to
discriminate against the market men
in favor of those who raise aad I J ing
to town fresh meats.
Hence, the best thing the city can
those who do not care to sell to the
market men. At these stalls they
have every facility for cutting, every
opportunity for catching custom, are
allowed every privilege as to deliv-
sery, etc., that the regular market men
enjoy. That is all the city can do
without throwing to the four winds
every safeguard that has been taken
forour protection against people who

would sell us meat that is impure, and
for the few paltry pennies it would
bring them, impart to fellow-beings
poisons and diseases which are known
to be component parts of such meats.
Justice and reason cannot ask that of
In conclusion we desire to say that
every person in Tallahassee desires
the friendliest relations with our coun-
try brethren. They are, perhaps, a
great deal more necessary, to our wel-
fare than we are to their's; because
they are the most independent class
in the world. We are willing to meet
them half way on any proposition anat
is for our mutual benefit. But they
-should not ask us for the sake of a few
minutes' freedom, to do as they please
when they 'bring fresh meats to town,
:to ignore those things which the exper-
ience of generations teach us are neces-
sary for the protection of our health, if
mot our lives.

Then it will be safe for law-abiding
peace-loving citizens to go forth un-
armed as they are wont to do.

^he Indian River Advocate, pub-
lished at Titusville, pertinently asks:
"Why is it that our farmers are ap-
parently indifferent about planting
sugar cane? It can hardly be that the
market is glutted with either syrup or
sugar, in fact there is an actual de-
mand for Florida syrup."
The question is one that is hard of
solution. For years the papers and ag-
ricultural lecturers of Middle Florida
have urge the cultivation of sugar
cane, but if the agitation has had any
effect whatever, it is not apparent to
the casual observer.
It is a fact that there is a demand
for Florida syrup of a good quality.
Not only at home, but abroad. Yet
we doubt if the supply, if all of it
was kept at home, would furnish the
local consumers all they wan..
The same may be said of sweet po-
tatoes and various other products of
the Florida farm. In the case of
syrup and sweet potatoes it is partic-
ularly noticeable -1 this section of
the .~.ate, that those who raise either
article rush it to market in the fall,
oversupplying the immeulate home de-
mand, yet there does not seem to be
a sufficient quantity to warrant large
shippers in taking hold. The result is
low prices and a correspondingly dis-
gusted farmer. Final result-no crop
put in the next year.
The Tallahasseean is firmly con-
vinced that organized effort for a few
seasons would bring to our doors buy-
ers in sufficient numbers to warrant
tne growing of almost any sized crop
of sugar cane or sweet potatoes. We
would like to see a trial made any-
way. It is morally certain that if we
sit idly by and wait many of us wil'
be dead from old age before changed
conditions bring us a market for half
the things Middle Florida can grow
profitably on the farms. He-who takes
me lead in this matter will indeed be
a oenefactor. .

Editor Baker, of the Gate City
Chronicle, published at Sanford, has
studied human nature to some purpose
if he never writes anything better than
ti.e subloined, which is taken from the
current issue of his paper. It so truth-
tully portrays one- defect of humanity
which causes, perhaps, more sufferings
and privations than any other one
thing, that it seems to us it should
pluck the mote from the eyes of many
readers, hence it is given here in full:
"One 'of the faults of the times, the
force that keeps some worthy families
poverty stricken and engulfs the bread-
winner in a continuous maze of debt
and obligation, is the useless extrava-
gance of the human race to-day.Th)ou-
sands of people who are least able to
afford it present a constant example
of extravagance in the poorer walks
of life.
'It is .a curious fact and one worthy
of note, however, that few of those
blamed: for extravagance will ac-
knowledge the fault. They wil tell
you-and they seem to believe so-that

they buy nothing save what they are
compelled to have, and are in pressing
need of.

"The enchanting phantom of'style'
is the most conducive element to this
demoralizing and impoverishing idea;
and when to this is added constitu-
tional indolence, supporting pot-bel-
lied dignity, the combination becomes
irritatingly contemptible.
"Persons with no cash and less credit
swagger like shoddy aristocrats, ape
the manners, the carriage and the dig-
nities of the truly modest an. genteel,
and assume a virtue though they have
'it not-nor did- nature so provide that
they might acquire gentility.
"Children whose parents are iAde
able to afford it, are taught that they
should appear as fashiofiably dressed
and entertain as the offspring of the
most wealthy citizens.
"Mothers strain the family purse in
order to accomplish this purpose with
themselves as with their children, and,
men will borrow money-when they
are amply able to earn it-for the pur-
pose of keeping themselves and taeir
families up to the fashionable notch of
dress and in the swim wih the fash-
ionable set.
"Verily. it must be said we are living

ployment in the phb g a p_ e?
Men do not lobby so industriously for
nothing.-Pencasola Journal., .
We are reaay to admit that people do
not lobby for nothing.' But sometimes
i. is pretty hard to tell what they are
lobbying for. And until the new lease
goes into effect and the pbospatep
people begin "Kicking' again, we shall
believe they, or the majority of them,
are satisfied.

Mainly for the benefit of the farmers
and truck growers of the State, the
Agricultural Department has for sev-
eral years issued a publication known
as the "Monthly Bulletin." It has,
perhaps, been subjected to more ridi-
cule than any other real good thing that
has kept on notwithstanding the re-
luctance of the public to avail them-
selves of it free of charge.- .,
At least one South Florida editor
sees something in it now, however.
The current issue of the Kissimmee
Valley Gazette contains the following:
"A recent issue of the 'Monthly Bul-
letin' (published by the State Agricul-
tural Department and sent free to
any address upon application) contains
among other important agricultural
information and statistics, the follow-
ing official,analysis of tobacco dust, a
material largely used by our farmers,
and particularly by the pine-apple
Then follows a list of analyses
taken from the Bulletin named. The
article is concluded with. this logical
"We call the attention of the users
to the wide variation in the manurial
and market values of the different
"One sample contains 13.6 pounds of
ammonia per ton and 10.6 pounds of
potash per ton, both worth at current
prices $2.47.
another (the best) contains 47.6
pounds of ammonia, and 93 pounds of
potash per ton, with a total value of
$11.79 per ton.
"Comment is unnecessary; farmers
and fruit growers should send for the
Bulletin and copy of the fertilizer laws
and insist that the goods they purchase
are as represented. The laws are
ample to protect the grower and hon-
est dealer from frauds of this nature
and 'can only be executed by the hearty
co-operation of those interested ana
the State officers."
Any person in the State can have the
Bulletin mailed to him reoAlarly for
the asking, free of charg:iand it it
does not prove a good thingtfor every
farmer who reads it carefully, espec-
ially ift. he. uses commercial fertilizers,
then we.are much mistairLkn

'Our dispatches this morning tell of
Lue result of an experiment in good
road building near Charlotte, N. C.
Ninety miles of macadamized roads
have been built from tha city at a cost
of $250,000. It is stated that this has
Increased the value of the property on
these roads 50 per cent.
It is not sad. how many of the roads
leading out of the city have been ma-
cadamized, so their average length is
not known. Assuming it to be ten miles
the average distance from Charlotte of
the land they traverse is five miles, ana
if this estimate were correct, the aver-
age value of the lands before the road&
were improved was probably about
thirty dollars per acre. The increase
in value then would be fifteen dollars
per acre. Assuming that this increase
applied to the lands for a half mile on
either side of the road, 57,600 acres
would be enhanced in vaule at the rate
rf fifteen dollars per acre, or the gain
would be $864,000. On the supposition
that the lands a half mile from these
roads were worth fifteen dollars per
acre before the improvements were
made and that they gained 25 per cent.
$?3 6.000 would have to be added, carry-
ing the total gain to $1,080,000 on an
investment of $250,000. Thi- is a
pretty handsome return, but it nta-
all. Lands beyond the limits to whicl
tht. roads were improved would be l.en.

to some extent increased and travel
to some extent increasl1 and ira.ei
through the country is made more eom-
fortable. Altogether it is not improba-
ble that the gain would reach a totak of
$2,000,000-eight times the cost.
This the day of the bicycle and the-
automobile. Bicycle riding has taken
the place of horseback riding, and the
automobile is destined to a considera-
ble extent to take the place of the bug-
gy, the carriage and the wagon. AutO.
mobiles can be used for hauling !r,:-

SM men, as a freight agent of one of
Oe railroads that enter St. Louis

Mleeeed, but she would have done so
Uad not the agent gone .back on his
wad. The family had decided to move
to a western city. The lady called on
the agent to see how the goods were to
be shipped. He told her she could ship
them according to regular rates or else
charter a car. He explained that the
latter would be cheaper If she had
enough goods, and the lady decided to
take a car. Now, there are two well
grown boys, and as money is not over-
plentiful In the family she wished to
abridge expenses-as much as possible.
She went to see the agent again and
asked If she could send her two boys
ta the car.- He told her that she could
not, and, as might be expected, she
asked why. lie couldn't make her
understand Just why, and when shi
asked him If the company never le1.

said that they did with stock. "If yoiu
were shipping live stock that needed
tending, we would do it. Now, yor,
haven't a cow or horse or pig, and there
would be no use sending any onq
along." She-appeared to see the point
this time and went away. A day or
two later she came around again and
asked for passes for the two boys.
"Why, madam," said the agents "1
can't issue any passes. You haven't
any live stock."
"Yes. I have," said the little woman.
I'Tve bought a pig."
Then the agent was in trouble again.
He said he couldn't give passes where
the fare amounted to about $8 apiece
far two boys for a lonely little pig. She
reminded him of what he had said and
told him that she had paid $2.25 for the
pig for that purpose, and he ought to
be as good as his word. Like all rail-
mad agents, he tried to get out of the
trouble smoothly, but only succeeded
after he had purchased the pig for

Tax Sal Certificates.

Comptroller Reynolds is Lending out the following circular letter
of instruction relative to the redemption and purchase of Tax Sale Cer-
tificates under the new law, after September Ist:
DEAR SIR-I submit the following provisions of the law and the
construction placed thereon fa r your information and guidance on and
after September 1st, A. D. 1 91:

Redemption ofi Tax Sale Certificates.:
Whe Held by the State.
The Act of 1901, Chapter 888, of the Laws of Florida, provides for
redemptions as follows:
"Any person, or agent ofisuch person, owning or claiming lands sold
for taxes, or any part or parcel thereof, or any interest therein, or the
creditor of any such owner or; claimant, may redeem the same at any time
after such sale and before a tax deed is issued therefore, by paying to the
Clerk of the Circuit Court of -he county wherein such land is situated the
face of the certificate of sale, or such proportion thereof as the part or in-
terest redeemed shall bear to the whole, and interest thereon at the rate
of twenty-five per cent, per ainum for the first year, and eight per cent.
per annum for the time after Ihe hrst year from the date of sale, together
with a fee of fifty cents for the clerk for each certificate or part of certifi-
cate so reeeemed." See Section 5.
"Should it appear that e land covered by the oldest certificate to be
transferred or canceled has n t been assessed, or is assessed to the State,
for any subsequent year, party purchasing or redeeming the oldest

certificates shall pay to clerk the taxes due fork each of such subse-
quent omitted years, based the last assessed valuation, with interest
thereon at the rate of twenty -five per cent. per annum for the first two

land. Under Section 7 the same is true as to the right of a purchaser to
purchase any particular tax sale certificate upon the payment of the
amount required by law, but such tax sale certificate would be of no value
to him whatever as he would be compelled to take up all other tax sale
certificates held by the State covering the same land before a tax deed
could issue, and under the act of 1901 no right, title or interest is vested
in the purchaser until a tax deed is executed by the Clerk of the Circuit
Court; should the purchaser fail to purchase all the tax sale certificates
held by the State at the same time it would necessitate the
payment of taxes for the subsequent omitted years a second
time when he applied for a tax deed as the words "oldest certificate" mean
the oldest certificate held by the State for which an application is made
either to redeem or purchase, and the purchase of one of several tax sale
certificates held by the State does not carry with it any right not pos-
sessed by any other person in any subsequent transaction under Chap-
ter 4888 of the Laws of Florida.
If any person should purchase only one of several tax sale certifi-
cates held by the State covering the same land, any purchaser of all of
the remaining tax sale certificates would have the right and could secure
a tax deed to the land as against the person who purchased only one of
such tax certificates.
The law must be strictly followed and the full amount fixed and
required by law must be collected in every case.
It is important that the law should be applied uniformly in each and
every county, and I will do all in my power to contribute to that end.
Yours very truly,
W. H. REYNOLDS, Comptroller.

the amount for which such parcel was sold, or such portion thereof as the
part or interest redeemed shall amount to, with interest thereon at the
rate of 25 per cent. per annum and fifty cents redemption fees." See Sec-
tion 57 of Chapter 4322 of the Laws of Florida.
At any time within 90 days after the expiration of two years from date
of tax sale, and before notice of application for tax deed is published,
the cost of redemption of land covered by a tax certificate held by an
individual will be the amount of the tax certificate, or such proportion
thereof as the part or interest redeemed shall bear to the whole, --th in-
terest thereon at the rate of twenty-five per cent. per annum for we first
two years from the date of the tax sale and at the rate of eight per cent.
per annum for the time after two years. Section 57 of Chapter 4322
and Section 5 of Chapter 4888 of the Laws of Florida, construed to-
In the redemption of land covered by tax sale certificates which may
hereafter be issued in the form provided by Section 1 of Chapter 4888
of the Laws of Florida. Section 5 of said act must be followed in lieu
of the law, above given applying to the redemption of land embraced
in tax sale certificates held by individuals which were issued under
Section 54 of Chapter 4322 of the Laws of Florida.
After the notice of application qf deed is published, the applicant to
redeem will have to comply with Section 9 of Chapter 4888 of the Laws
of Florida "by paying to the Clerk the full amount that may be due the
applicant for all certificates, fees and cost of publication, or such portion
thereof as the part or interest redeemed shall bear to the whole, together
with eight per cent. thereon."

Purchase of Tax Sale Certificates.
The act of 1901, Chapter 4888 of the Laws of Floridia provides the
terms of purchase of tax sale certificates as follows: i
"Any person may purchase any certificate of land sold or certified to
the State for taxes, from the Clerk of the Circuit Court of the county
wherein such land is situated by paying to such Clerk the amount of such
certificate and interest thereon, from the date of' the certificate at the
rate of twenty-five per cent. per (uannum for the first twe years, andeight
per cent. per annum for the time after the first two years. and a fee of
fifty cents for the clerk, and the endorsement of such certificate by such
clerk officially, with the date and amount received, shall be sufficient evi-
dence of the transfer and assignment thereof. Any portion of lands or
interest therein, contained in a tax certificate held by the State, which
can be ascertained by a legal and usual sub-division, can be redeemed or
sold by a certificate of such transfer, or redemption, under the hand and
official seal of the Clerk of the Circuit Court, and a deed may issue
thereupon in compliance with the terms of this act. Endorsement of the
clerk shall be made upon the tax certificate of the portion of the certfi-
cate redeemed or sold, giving the description of the land and the date of
the transfer, with t he amount received therefore. Should it appear that
the land covered by the oldest certificate to be transferred or canceled
has not been assessed, or is assessed to the State, for any subsequent year,
the party purchasing or redeeming the oldest certificates shall pay to the
clerk the taxes due for each of such subsequent omitted years, based
upon the last assessed valuation, with interest thereon at the rate of
twenty-five per cent. per annum Jor the first two years and eight per
cent. per annum for the time after the first two years, beginning on the
first day of April of the year next after the year for which such taxes
are due." See Sec. 7.
The words subsequentt omitted years," are held to mean each year
subsequent to the year for which the taxes were assessed on the land em-
braced in the oldest tax sale certificate applied for, except the subsequent
year or years, for which the land was sold for unpaid taxes.
Purchaser Must Redeem all Other Ovitstanding Tax Sale Certificates.
"The holder of any tax certificate at any time two years after the date
of its issue, may obtain a tax deed to the land therein described by ap-
plication to the Clerk of the Circuit Court of the county wherein such
land is situated as provided in this act, and the surrender of such certifi-
cate and the payment to the clerk of the proper amount for the redemp-
tion or surrender of all other outstanding certificates covering said lands,
and the payment to the clerk a fee of fifty cents for each certificate then
redeemed, and for searches, audlafee of one dollar for the issue of the
deed; Provided, All applications for tax deeds shall be made within ninety
days after the expiration of two years from the date of the certificate, if
bought at the satb by a private party, or within ninety days after its
transfer fy the State, if owned by the State, after the
expiration of two years from the date of the certificate, containing the
description embraced in one certificate, and ten cents for each additional
description of land embraced in any one deed." See Sec. 10.
In making the redemptions provided for by this section payments
must be required in strict accordance with section 5 and also section 7
in so far as relates to taxes for "subsequent omitted years."

Under Section 5, any person may redeem any particular certificate
by paying the amount required by said section together with the taxes
for the -subsequent omitted years" and interest thereon as provided bv
Section 7, and he is not compelled to redeem all tax sale certificates held
by the State covering the same land but it would be best for his own pro-
tection for him to redeem all such tax sale certificates as it would
save the payment of taxes for "subsequent omitted years" again
when he applied to redeem another tax sale certificate covering the same

Under the law a silver dollar may be
a grain and a half over weight or a
grain and a half under weight, and this
Limit of tolerance" applies to all of our
Bilver coins. In other words, they are
adt allowed to vary more than that
much from standard. In the ease of
golidpleces, the limit is half a grain
either way up to the eagle, a variation
f as much as one grain being permissi-
ble in the $10 and $20 pieces.
Whenever a fresh batch of dollars Is
turned out at the mint. samples are
forwarded to the treasury at Washing-
ton, where they are put through a very
curious process. Each dollar is first
;weighed on exquisitely delicate scales
to make sure that it is heavy enough
and yet not too heavy. Then it is pass-
ed between two steel rollers again and
again until It is flattened out and
transformed into a thin strip of silver-
a sort of ribbon--a foot and a half in
length. Then it is put beneath a little
machine provided with several small
punches, by which hundreds of tiny
disks are punched out of the metal
Now, the object of this performance
t is to obtain samples of metal from all
parts of the dollar, Inasmuch as it is
conceivable that one portion might be
richer in silver than another. The little
disks are shuffled together, and a few
of them, taken at random from the lot,
are subjected to an assay. Thus the
i fineness of the material of the dollar is
ascertained with absolute accuracy
and, the weight having been already
determined, the value and correctness
of that coin are perfectly known.
The sample pieces having been found
correct, it is inferred that the entire
batch of dollars is all right.-Saturday
Evening Post.

Natural Waters.
All natural waters contain a greater
-or less amount of mineral matter in so-
Jlution. Rain water has the smallest
percentage of solid impurities of any.
and therefore it Is taken as the stand-
ard variety of soft water.
The terms soft and hard, however,
If as applied to water are scientifically
considered purely relative.
Water is usually reckoned to be
"soft" when it contains less than one
five-thousandth part of Its weight of
mineral ingredients and "hard" when it
contains more than one four-thou-
Soft water has the property of easily
forming a. lather with soap and is
0 therefore suitable for washing pur-
poses, while hard water will only form
a lather, and that imperfectly, with
x considerable difficulty.
A mineral water has more than one
two-thousandth of its weight of nat-
ift ural dissolved solids, and a medicinal
water is a variety of mineral water
containing a varying percentage of dis-
O solved natural solid or gaseous drugs.

Battered Side Up.
One of the stories which Levi Uutch-
Ins, the old time clockmaker of Con-
. -cord, N. H.. delighted to tell related to
Sthe youth of Daniel Webster.
"One day." said the old man. "while
I was taking breakfast at the tavern
kept by Daniel's father, Daniel and his
S brother Ezekiel who were little boys
with dirty faces and snarly hair. came
to the table and asked me for bread
and butter.
"1 complied with their request, little
thinking that they would become very
distinguished men. Daniel dropped
his piece of bread on the s&ndy floor.
and the buttered side of course was
Down. De looked at it a moment, then
picked It up and showed It to me, say-
'What a pity! Please give me a.
piece of bread buttered on both sides;
then if I let it fall one of the buttered
sides will be up.'"

Where Amerleas Are Modest.
The American Is shy of proclaiming
to the world his deepest sentiments and
Superstitions. if he has any. He pre-
fers to take himself either as a joke or
as a matter of business. Hence when
he has a town to name he Walls it
"Smithville" or "New Bristol" or, as
actually happened in the case of one
town. "0O. K." He may believe in a lo-
Cal ghost, be may love his wife, be may
admire the view from bis windows and
pine when torn from the woods and
mountains among which be passed bhis
boyhood, but he does not want to put
those emotions into the postofBce dl-
feetory.-Washington Times.

"That chap has agoraphobia," said
one of two men who had noted the
"Has what?" asked the other.
"Agoraphobia. It means simply an
abhorrence of open spaces, and it has
a great many victims. Specialists in
this sort of nervousness say It takes
various forms, some of Its subjects
having an insurmountable dread of
crossing from one side of the street
to the other, while others have a dis-
inclination to go more than a few
blocks from their home.
"Some dread to step across a puddle
of water, like the man we just saw.
Others dread descending Into a well
beyond a certain depth, and still oth-
ers have a fear of getting too high In a
building or an elevator. As a rule,
these persons are acutely Intellectual,
so It is no mental disgrace to be a vic-
tim of agoraphobia, simply a misfor-
tune that is commoner than most per-
sons suppose."-New York Telegram.

A Celebrated Roman Eater.
Touching the matter of eating, the
stories told by the old chroniclers and
historians of the abnormal appetites of
certain Roman and oriental men of
note fairly stagger belief. Gibbon tells
of Solinman. a caliph In the eighth cen-
tury. who died of indigestion in his
camp near Chalcis, in Syria, just as he
was about to lead an army of Arabs
against Constantinople. He had emp-
tied two baskets of eggs and figs,
which he swallowed alternately, and
the repast was finished with marrow
and sugar. In a pilgrimage to Mecca
the same caliph had eaten with Impu-
nity at a single meal 70 pomegranates,
a kid. 6 fowls and a huge quantity of
the grapes of Tayef.
Such a statement would defy belief
were not others of a similar character
well avouched. Louis XIV could hard-
ly boast of an appetite as ravenous as
Soliman's, but be would eat at a sitting
four platefuls of different soups, a
whole pheasant, a partridge, a plateful
of salad, mutton hashed with garlic,
two good sized slices of Lam. a dish of
pastry and finish with fruit and sweet-

Cur4ous Vienna Law.
They have curious laws In Vienna
and enforce them too. Recently Marie
Friedl and Felix Kopstein. aged 15 and
13 years respectively, were walking
along a street in the Austrian capital
when they came across an old woman
staggering along under the weight of a
heavy package. Moved by pity. they
offered to carry it for the old woman, a
proposition to which she readily ac-
ceded. The kind hearted children had
not gone far before they were arrested
by a policeman for carrying parcels
without a license. The children were
taken to a police station, where the of-
ficer In charge lectured them upon the
enormity of their offense. They were
kept under arrest for six hours and
then released with a warning.
It seems that there Is a corps of
"messengers" In Vienna to which a
municipal statute grants the exclusive
right of "carrying" Inside the city. The
bay and girl had violated the law by
carrying the old woman's burden, and
under such an Interpretation of the
statute a man who carries a package
for a woman with whom he Is walking
may be "run in" by the first policeman
who sees him.
S The Way the Boy Put It.
Different sermons may be preached
from the same text, and there may be
more or less of truth In each of them.
"Here is an account." said Mr. Morse.
pointing to a paragraph In the evening
paper, "of the way in which a boy
was saved from drowning by a mastiff
which belonged to his cousin. The boy
ventured too near the edge of a treach-
erous bank, lost his footing and fell
Into the lake. The dog dashed in after
him and succeeded in pulling him out."
"There." said Mrs. Morse, turning an
accusing glance upon her 10-year-old
son, "that shows how dangerous it is
for a boy to go too near the water!"
"Why, mother," said the boy in sor-
rowful astonishment. "I thought father
read It because it showed how perfect-
ly safe I'd be wherever I went If you'd
only let him buy me a big dogr"
Mr. Morse coughed and became dis-
creetly absorbed in the quotations of

A Study In Poker.
One journalist who is an expert In
practical psychology walked a couple
of squares with a member of the cabi-
net trying to elicit an expression of
opinion on a certain matter of moment.
The secretary's lips were as firmly
closed as the shells of a Hingham quo-
haug at low water so far as the desired
"last word" was concerned or even a
hint of the situation. He was not so
completely self contained, however,
that his actions and manner were in-
scrutable. The reporter hazarded a
guess founded on his Impressions and
wired the result to his paper. The next
day the secretary met him and said:
"How did you get that information.
Mr. -?"
"From you, sir," said the reporter.
"From me, sir?" said the secretary.
"I never said a word."
"That is so," replied the correspond-
ent, "but you acted it."
"Well, you were wrong in some
things, anyhow. Still, I think I'll have
to take a course of congressional! poker

"Why, you read their hands by re-
versing their expression. The man who

Development of the Hammer.
Man's first tool was the uplifted hand
grasping a stone, and from this came,
after many years, the hammer. As
heavier blows became necessary the
hammer grew in size, until It was op-
erated by machinery in the form of the
tilt or helve hammer. When steam suc-
ceeded water as a motive power, a
steam cylinder replaced the tripping
cam, but the first half of the past cen-
tury had nearly expired before the orig-
inal form of this tool was at all chang-
ed by James Nasmyth's invention of
the upright steam hammer.
Since then the falling weight of this
design of tool has gradually been in-
creased from a few hundred pounds up
to 100 and even 125 tons, but excepting
the smaller sixes up to 25 tons it has

L th e visits to Her of Suitor ]Wiles
and Giles.
The widow Is a resident of Brooklyn.
Two of her friends are stockbrokers
In Wall street and fellow club mem-
bers, but they bad never spoken of her
to each-bother.
And the widow was wary. While
her mind was undecided, she encour-
aged both and arranged that they call
on different occasions. But one even-
-4ng, unfortunately, the two suitors met,
and the situation became embarrass-
ing. Giles, who had entered first, be-
lieved he had the right of possession.
]Niles was of opinion that the earlier
callershould take his leave first. There-
fore both tarried.-
At length, as the hour was growing
late, Nles suggested that they depart
together and discuss a matter of in-
terest to their club on their homeward
way. Giles, unable to find a real ex-
cuse, agreed.
Together they boarded a car and to.
gether reached the ferry for Manhattan

necessarily, it appeared to Giles, be-
came engaged in a controversy with a
man Who had jostled him, but the op-
portunity seemed heaven sent to Glles,
and he embraced it to return the way
he had come. He had been on the
point of asking a crucial question, and,
being a man of resolution, he determin-
ed not to risk another hour's delay, lIe
stopped a moment in a cigar store to
arrange his necktie.

Arriving at the apartment house, he
was informed by the hallboy that the
elevator had just gone up for the last

There is a dearth of thoroughly train-
ed men In all professions. The more
exacting the conditions the greater the
need. The thoroughly trailed man
nowadays must be a college man. The
universities are using every effort to
train men along special lines for defi-
nite efficiency in something. The old
Idea of college education as general
culture is pLssing away. The universi-
ty takes men as they are and makes
the most out of what they can do. A
man today in America is foolish to be
"self made" when better means are at
hand. It is equally foolish to choose a
self taught man as against other men
who have worked with equal zest and

The Readlfn Cumre.
Reading aloud is recommended by
physicians as a benefit to persons af-
fected wtth any chest complaint. The
recommendation is made because In all
eases of lung trouble it is important
for the sufferer to indulge in exercise
by which the chest is in part filled by
and emptied of air, for the exercise is
strengthening to the throat, lungs and
muscles of the chest.
Reading aloud can be practiced by
all and besides being a curative act
can be a pleasure and profit to both
reader and hearers. In this treatment
It is recommended that an overdose of
medicine be avoided,'that the reading
be deliberate, without being allowed
to drag, that the enunciation be clear,
the body be held in an easy, unstrain-
ed upright position, so that the chest
will have free play, and that the
breathing be natural and as ?eep as
possible without undue effort.

Throwingr Riee.
How many people know that the cus-
tom of throwing rice at a wedding
symbolizes not the expression of good
luck, but it Js a metaphorical flight of
arrows shot at the bridegroom. In un-
civilized ages most nations were accus-
tomed to the forcible capture of a bride
by her lover, and the attempts on the
part of her male relatives to prevent
her husband from carrying her away is
typified by a volley of rice instead o1
more fatal' missiles. ..

"The small size of the screw," says a

purely to accident When I first engag-
ed in the machinery business, screws
for steamers were made as large as
possible, It being the theory that the
greater the diameter the higher the
speed. A vessel was placed on Lake
Erie with a screw so large that it was
deemed best to cast each blade in two
-parts and then weld them together.
During a storm all these blades of the
propeller broke at the welding, redue-
ing the diameter by more than two-

Employees In a Depavtiw eStore
Were Dazed by A $tT.WO Bill.
There was one division of one of the
largest department stores along Sixth
avenue that suspended business for
half as hour one day last week. A
woman bought some handkerchiefs
and a pair of towels. The clerk footed
her bill, 49 cents, and the woman laid
a paper bill on the counter.
The clerk, a girl. looked at It hastily.
It read 1,O00. She had never seen a
thousand dollar bill before in her life,
and the amazement it caused made her
speechless. With her mouth open in
wonder she made out the check, show-
Ing that 49 cents was to be taken out
of $1,000. The girl who acts as cashier
fell back in her chair when she saw the
bill. She didn't have change for it,
and after gazing at it in wondering ad-
miration for a moment she rushed out
to find the manager. He asked for the
customer who had offered it, and the
girl led the way to where the woman
was waiting. The clerk had recovered
from her surprise enough to point out
the customer.
The manager said, "Madam, what
did you buy?"
The woman named over the small
"What did you give the clerk"
"I gave her a dollar bill."
"No; you gave her this, and it is
worthless," the manager said sternly.
Perspiration stood out on the wom-
an's face as she looked in wonder at
the bill. She fished a dollar out of a
handbag she carried and paid. By that
time she had figured out an explana-
tion. She has a son attending a busi-
ness college, where they have mock
transactions in business and paper to
look as much like money as the coun-
terfeiting laws of the country will per-
mit are used. The clerks had been so
stunned by the big figures that they
did not see that it was not money at
all, but a fake bill.-New Yori Herald.

ad the Visits to Her of Saltor wiles
and Giles.
The widow is a resident of "Brooklyn.
Two of her friends are stockbrokers
In Wall street and fellow club mem-

And the widow was wary. While
her mind was undecided, she encour-
aged both and arranged that they call
en different occasions. But one even.
-Ing, unfortunately, the two suitors m,-t,
and the situation became embarrass-
ing. Giles, who had entered first, be-
lieved he hadthe right of possession.
Niles was of opinion that the earlier
callershould take his leave first There-
fore both tarried.
At length, as the hour was growing
late, Niles suggested that they depart
together and discuss a matter of in-
terest to their club on their homeward
way. Giles, unable to find a real ex-
cuse, agreed.
Together they boarded a car and to-
gether reached the ferry for Manhattan
At this juncture Niles, somewhat un-
necessarily, it appeared to Giles, be.
came engaged in a controversy with a
man who had jostled him, but the op-
portunity seemed heaven sent to Giles,
and he embraced it to return the way
he had come. He had been on the
point of asking a crucial question, and.
being a man of resolution, he deterrml in-
ed not to risk another hour's delay, lie
stopped a moment in a cigar store to
arrange his necktie.
Arriving at the apartment house, he
was informed by the hallboy that the
elevator had Just gone up for the last
time. So near the object of his adora-
tion, this seemed but a trivial incon-
venience, and, like the ardent P. J.
Beranger. "lightly he vaulted up four
