Ex-Representative Allen ("Private
John Allen, of Tupelo"), of Missis-
sippi, now one of the St. Louis Expo-
sition Commissioners, called on Mr.
Roosevelt, in company with four of his
fellow commissioners. When asked
about what was the object of their call,
Mr. Allen put bn one of his most seri-
ous looks and dropping his voice al-
most to a whisper, replied: "The ob-
ject of our call was a most delicate one.
We wanted to relieve the President of
any anxiety he might have had that
there were any vacancies in this com-
mission. The President has the repu-

Councilman Ball's remarks at the
City Council meeting last night in re-
gard to the condition of the Tallahas-
see fire department were timely and to
the point His statement that in case
of a serious fire the city would be in
poor shape to combat it, and that the
council would be to blame, places the
response t where it should fall.
No department can successfully fight
fire without the necessary apparatus,
and it is the duty of the council to see
that the firemen are supplied with ev-
erything necessary to protect public
property. Firemen, and especially
volunteers, nave the most thankless
jobs on earth. Tney are expected to
respond to the call at all hours of the

ed, and they undergo many hardships

heroic work they get no pay and little
thanks, and the least the council can
do is to furnish them with necessary
Councilman Ball knows the wants of
the city in this respect He is a busi-
ness man of sound judgment, and his
remarks came at a most opportune
time to accomplish results. The coun-
cil did a wise thing in ordering the
fire committee to purchase a wagon
and all needed apparatus at once.
Tallahassee has been peculiarly free
from destructive fires in the past. This
has been due more to luck tdan pre-
caution, but the people will rest more
secure in the future, knowing that
proper precautions are being taken to

The handsome and' commodious resi-
dence of Judge and Mrs. George P.
Raney was thrown open Wednesday
evening, in a reception to their friends,
and the occasion was one of the most
brilliant ever held in the Capital City.
The judge and 'his estimable bride had'
just returned from their bridal trip a
few days before, and their hundreds of
friends were anxious to extend con-
gratulations and best wishes.
The house was tastefully and appro-
priately decorated for the occasion,
palms, ferns and cut flowers predom-
inating. About two hundred invita-
tions had been sent out to friends of
the happy couple, and fortunate
guests enjoyed thoroughly the pleas-
ing hospitality of the judge and
his bride. Refreshments were served.
Judge and Mrs. Raney are great favor-
ites in Tallahassee,an and the entire
community join in wishing' them a
long life of connubial bliss.

The King's Daughters give their an-
nual Christmas bzaaar at the armory
today. The place will be tastefully
decorated for the occasion and it is
unnecessary to say that all who attend
will enjoy themselves.
The King's Daughters are noted al-
most as much for the excellence of
their bazaars and other social gather-
ings as they are for their benevolence.
The order is non-sectarian, being
composed of members from al the dif-
ferent churches. Their object is to
look out for the care and comfort of
the poor, sick and needy, and every
person in the city should taae pride in
helping them along.
Dinner and supper will be served.

Under the new arrangement of the
schedules and. the addition of a fast
passenger train, our people and tourists
can eat early breakfast in New York
City one day and go to bed at the reg-

in Tallahassee. Parties coming this
way can eat dinner in Savannah and
supper in Tallahassee, coming all the
way over the Seaboard.
Such schedules are what we have
been wanting a long time. They will
do great things for us in time. Rates
are the next things most needed.

We would call the attention of our
readers to the advertisement of the
Royai Worcester Corset Co. in another
column in this issue of our paper.
This concern has appropriatr!d a
large amount of money to bring the

ceiving at their office t' Worcester,
Mass., inquiries fr-m E-rip.1, the
Orient and from all parts of the wonid,
proving that the Worcester Cor-
set is superseding the European made
article, because it is a better corset
and fits better. No higher compliment
could be paid the skill and honesty of
purpose displayed in the manufacture
of the Royal Worcester and Bon Ton
Corsets than the fact that many of the
leading manufacturers in various parts
of Europe have copied their designs.
The fact that the Royal Worcester and
Bon Ton Cersets are the best fitting
and best constructed corsets now be-
fore the public, coupled with the fact
that they are American corsets
through and through, makes it reason-
able to every woman that she is con-

Little Business Was on Circuit Court
Docket for Disposal.
The fall term of the Leon county
circuit court adjourned las. Friday
and the members of the grand jury
were discharged.
The court convened with oply a few
cases on the docket. The grand jury
found a number of bills, which aided
some to the business. The present-

We, the grand jurors, enquiring in
and for the body of the county of
Leon, fall term circuit court, A. D.
1901, do make the following general
1st We find that the clerk of the
circuit court, sheriff and county judge
have complied with section 3, chapter
4141, laws of 1893, and we file their
statements herewith and make same
a part hereof.
Zd. Under section 17, chapter 4338,
laws of 1895, we report as follows:
We are glad to state that the public
roads and bridges are in a generally
good condition, with the exception of
the road going over lamonia slough.
and we respectfully call attention of
the board of county commissioners
thereto and hope that they will take
immediate steps to have the same put
in proper repair as they as well as we
must realize the fact that good roads
and bridges are an absolute necessity
in all counties dependent upon agi;-
culture for support and maintenance.
3d. We have carefully examined in-
to all cases submitted to us by the
proper authorities, 26 in number, and
it is with great pleasure that we not-e
the small amount of crime committed
within this county during the past
few months, and it shows a source of
congratulation to the people of the
4th. We have examined into the
condition of the county jail and :ind
that the same needs repairs in many
respects, viz: there is a bad leak in
the main body ot the jail which should
be fixed at once and there should be a
sewer pipe running from the jail to
some place where the refuse could be
destroyed, and we also find that the
ash pile is kept too near the building.
We also suggest that the board of
county commissioners furnish suitable
chairs for both the grand and petit
jury rooms.
5th. We tender our thanks to his
honor Judge John W. Malone for his
able, comprehensive and explicit
charges relative to our duties, and
congratulate the people upon the rapid-
ity and legal correctness with which
the business of the court is disposed of.
6th. We also tender our sincere
thanks to our able and efficient State's
attorney for his valuable information
and services to our body and also to
our efficient clerk of the circuit court
and sheriff for their prompt attention
to all of our requests and to our bailiff
for his constant attendance upon this

Mrs. Winslow's Soothing Syrup has
been used for over fifty years by mil-
lions of mothers for their children
while teething, with perfect success. It
sobthes the child, softens the gums,
allays all pain, cures wind colic, and is
the best remedy for diarrhoea. It will
relieve the poor little sufferer imme-
diately. Sold by all druggists in every
part of the world. Twenty-five cents a
bottle. Be sure and ask for "Mrs. Wins-
low's Soothing Syrup," and take no
other kind.

for the feed, were the underlying prin-

Many Notaries Public Have Been

It looKs as if nearly everybody you
meet is either a notary public, has
been a notary public, or wants to be a
notary public. The governor's ap-

this class although one of another
character is occasionally recorded.
The following appointments, have
been maae during the past week, and
their commissions forwarded by the
secretary of state:
William C. Monroe, of Pensacola, to
be notary public for the State at large.
Daniel Pippin, of Westville, to be

I was first advised by our family
physician in Charleston to useTEETH-
INA with our-baby when she was but
a very young infant, as a prev-mtive
of colic and to warm ;ind sweet:"i the
stomach. Later7it was useful in teeth-
ing troubles, and its effect has been
found to be very benencial and so
free from the dangers that are conse-
quent upon the use of drugs and sooth-
ing syrups, that, we have come to re-
gard it, after use with ,cree children,
as one of the necessities when there
is a new baby in the house and until
the teething troubles are over, and we
take pleasure in recommending it to
our friends instead of the horrid stuff
that so many people use to keep their
babies quiet.

The diversity of opinion that exists
among fanciers as to the feeding and
treatment of their pets is very pro-
nounced, says the Poultry Monthly.
'One of the subjects on which rabbit
breeders are wont to be greatly at va-
riance is that of green food. The large?
majority of the breeds find that green
stuff is essential to the health and well
being of their animals. Dwellers in the
country have an advantage over their
town brethren; in that they can pro-
cure a great variety of green food due'-
ing the spring and summer; chickorvy,
dandelion, hedge, parsley, sow thistle,
grass and clovek4, radish tops, blackber-
ry leaves, turnip tops, fresh pea pods.
cabbage and lettuce leaves are easily
procured. In towns cabbage, lettuce
and dandelion have to be looked to as
the chiel vegetables.
Chickory, though not often used, is
most valuable and beneficial. It is
eaten readily bly the animals and'keeps
tnem in good 'condition, never giving
them the scours.
Cabbage is particularly useful at a
time of year when other green food is
not to be had.' Lettuce is particularly
useful for breeding does, although of
so watery a nature that it should not
be given in large quantities of in wet
seasons. Dandelion is another valua-
ble green food. It has a powerful ef-
fect on the kidneys, so should not be
given for a lengthy period at a time.
Hedge parsley is largely used in the
country. It must not be mistaken for
hemlock, which is somewhat like it
and very poisonous.

Woo~D has been very scarce in Talla-
hassee this winter. But the experi-
ence will not be sufficient to induce

the people to lay in a supply during
the summer season.

"Judge Hammond is one of your

"Yes-the richest in the county.
And what is more, he's a shrewd, far-
seeing man, and knows how to multi-
ply his riches."
"How is his son Willy coming on?"
"Oh! first rate." -
The landlord's eyes fell under the
searching look I bent upon him.
"How old is he now?"
"Just twenty." *
"A critical age," I remarked.
"So people say; but I didn't find it
so," answered Slade, a little distantly.
"The impulses within and the temp-

dangers. At his age, you were, nt.

"I was, and no mistake."
"Thousands and hundreds of thou-

is social-liberal-generous almost to

and wit enough. I take it. to keep put

A mian passing the house at the mo-

to break off a conversation' that *as
not, I could see, altogether agreeable.
As he left me, I arose and stepped ijito

son, was behind the bar. He lad

An Ingenious Treatment ny Which
Drunkards are Being Cured Daily
in Spite of Themselves.

No Noxious Doses. No Weakening of
the Nerves. A Pleasant and Posi-
tive Cure for the Liquor Habit.

It is now generally known and
understood that Drunkenness is a dis-
ease and not weakness. A body filled
with poison and nerves completely
shattered by periodical or constant use
of intoxicating liquors, requires an
antidote capable of neutralizing and
eradicating this poison, and destroy-
ing the craving for intoxicants. Suf-
ferers may now cure themselves at
home without publicity or loss of time
from business by this wonderful
"HOME GOLD CURE," which has
been perfected after many years of
close study and treatment of inebri-
ates. The faithful use according to
directions of this wonderful discovery
is positively guaranteed to cure the
most obbtinate case, no matter how
hard a drinker. Our records show the
marvelous transformation of thou-
sands of drunkards into sober, in-
dustrious aid upright men.
This remedy is in no sense a nostrum,
but is a specific for this disease only,
and is so skillfully devised and pre-
pared that it is thoroughly soluble and
pleasant to the taste, so that it can be
given in a cup of tea or coffee with-
out the knowledge of the person tak-
ing it. Thousands of drunkards have
cured themselves with this priceless
remedy, and as many more have been
cured and made temperate men by
having the "CURE" administered by
loving friends and relatives without
their knowledge in tea or coffee, and
believe to-day that they discontinued
drinking of their own free will. DO

The cattle of Orange county are in a

length of time.-Gate City Chronicle.

Pitt's Carminative is pleasant to the
taste, acts promptly, and never fails to

ens, Ga., writes:
"I consider it the best medicine I
have ever used in my family. It does
all you claim for it, and even more."
Melbourne has the somewhat rare
faculty of holding the friendship of

town.-Melbourne Times.
No one can reasonably hope for good
health unless his bowels move onep

Mrs. John L. Powell, of Jennings,
Fla., was summoned to Valdosta Fri-
day to attend at the bedside of a sick
daughter-in-law. Two little daughters
followed her to the train and loitered
about after it had left. They were
standing on the track in the rear of a
freight train, when the engine began
to back. The little girls were knocked
down by the caboose. One of them was
so badly mangled that it was necessary
to amputate one of her legs at the
thigh. The other child was seriously
injured, but may recover.
Birth-marks which mark and mar
the outside of the body are a grief to
every mother whose children may lhear
them. But for every child who bears
a birth-mark on the skin there are
many who bear an indelible birtih-
mark on the mind. Nervous mothers
have nervous children and many a
man and woman owes an irritable anI
despondent temperament to those days
of dread when the mother waited the
hour of her maternity. The use of
Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription
strengthens the mother for her trial.
With strength comes a j.,uyaney of
spirits and quietness of mind, which
is one of the happiest gifts a mother
can bestow on her offspring. By giv-
ing vigor and elasticity l the delicate
womanly organs "Favorite Prescrip-
tion" practically does away with the
pain of maternity and makes the haby'.;
advent as natural and as simple as tlhe
blossoming of a flower. There is no
opium, cocaine or other narcotic con-
tained in "Favorite Prescription."

from the State of Alabama aoout three
-years ago. Since that time he has

honest and truthful to his employers.
He was in the employ of Mr. Rhodes
-on his farm at the time of his death.
.Mr. Rhodes was not uneasy in the
least when he left his home; he en-
trusted his family to Grady's care, his
:stock, his business, and always found
:in Grady truth, honesty and faithfui-
oness. By these traits Mr. Rhodes a;mi
family had learned to love him. Ile
lived as one of the family and was
.treated as such.
During his illness there was nothing
spared that could be done for him. He
was given all attention that hliian
hands and medical skill could render.
But, alas! he has gone from us. Un-

1. The remedy of mandamus can not
be employed to accomplish a useless
purpose, and courts should not pro-
ceed with a cause in such proceedings
which involves only rights that have
ceased to exist.
2. A license tax, as a tax, confers no
right upon the party whose duty it is
to pay it; it simply lays a burden upon
an occupation and creates the duty to
pay it, and an ordinance that imposes
such a tax does not create any con-
tract right.
3. The ordinance of the city of
Tampa, passed September 28, 1900,
numbered 245, and Octbher i, ;)oe.
numbered 246,do not emrlrac- a .chinme
to impose double license taxes for the
same fiscal year.

includes the power to repeal or modify
it, provided no rights secured by c'n-
stitutional provision are thereby vio-
5. A party to a cause should not be
permitted to assume in argument in-
consistent and contradictory positions.
6. It would be useless to consider
an objection to a privilege license or-
ainance, construed distributively, on
the ground that the amount required
to be paid by the party objecting was
unreasonable, when no benefit would
result to him in the maintenance of his
cause if such objection should be sus-
tained. Judgment reversed. Hugh C.

and James F. Glen, for plaintiff in

The State Board of Health held a
meeting Friday night in Governor Jen-
nings' office in the Leon hotel. The
entire board was present.
The existence of scarlet fever in the
State was responsible for the meeting,
which was called for the purpose of
discussing the best methods for sup-
pressing the disease. Tne members of
the board are: President Hendry, of
Tampa; Dr. Sampson, of Pensacola,
and Dr. Broward, of Jacksonville.
Governor Jennings and Health Officer
Porter were also in attendance.
A copy of a letter which the health
officer had sent to the mayors of the
various towns and cities affected, and
which contained the views of the board
of health on the disease, together with
tne general principles on which it
should be combatted, was submitted to
the governor.
This communication treated the sub-
ject in a most comprehensive manner.
impressing upon them the necessity for
isolating all cases. It also dealt with
the manner of nursing, the best disin-
fectants to be employed, and the pre-
cautions to be used.
After discussion, a resolution was
adopted, amending the rules of the
board, so as to require physicians to
report all cases of scarlet fever, meas-
les, diphtheria and leprosy that may
come under their observation.

She Wax Very Vain apd Inordinately
Focd of F'ine rest.

Yet Elizabeth was never really suc-
cet ..ful with her wardrobe as a more
feminine woman might have ben. HCer
dresses were never beautiful, only lu-
dicrously and most inappropriately
magnificent-laden with jewels, weight-
ed down with cloth of gold, stiff with
silver embroidery and so heavy that
even her big, powerful frame must,
without supporting vanity, have felt
the fatigue of carrying them about.
Elizabeth was certainly vain, but she
cannot claim femininity merely on that
account, for vanity is by no means an
exclusively feminine characteristic.
There are perhaps more vain women
than vain men because women have
more leisure and their costumes afford
greater opportunities for vanity than
the strangely hideous clothing which
custom has arranged for men, but no
thoughtful (feminine) observer can
doubt that a vain man is vainer than a
vain woman.
Elizabeth's hands were her especial
pride, and, judging from her portraits,
they were certainly beautiful. They
were laden with jewels, and it was her
habit in public to pull her rings off
with absent artlessness and push them
on again, moving those white hands
about in the most obvious way. Once,
during the grave consideration of a
state paper,' wherein her cold sagacity
never took second place, she interrupt-
ed the discussion to ask whether the
Due d'Anjou, who was at one time one
of her suitors, had been told what a
pretty foot she had and how white and
well rounded was her arm? This in
the woman who financed the armada
with hard headed economy, who dared
the superstitious terrors of her own
conscience ia her high handed and im-
pudent treatment of the bishops, whose
Interest in methods of torture for state
prisoners was most mechanical and in-
telligent, entirely unhampered by any
squeamish feminine hesitation as to
blood or pain. is most curious.
In connection with this last charac-
teristic of cruelty vanity is not at all
ni'(ceedented. Indeed. if one observe
closely one will notice that excessively
vain persons li::ve almost always a
strange inclination toward cruelty.
The accounts of what Queen Elizabeth
permitted aind indeed commanded in
this respect will hardly bear reading
by us sensitive folk today.-Margaret
Deland in Harper's Bazar.

Slavery Protected the Negro.
If the negro had been forced to com-
pete for existence in America. he would
have been crushed out by the civilized
power, as the Indian has been. says
Albert Phelps in The Atlantic, but the
peculiar institution of slavery protect-
ed him not only from this competition,
but also. by artificial means, from those
great forces of nature which inevitably
weed out the weaker organisms and
which operate most unrestrainedly up-
on the ignorant savage. For the first
time, perhaps, in the history of the
world human beings had been bred and
regulated like valuable stock, with as
much care as is put upon the best
horses and cattle. As a natural conse-
quence the sanitary condition of the
negro during slav-ry was remarkable.
especially by contrast with his present
condition. and his growth was the ab-
normal growth of a-plant abnormally
raised in a hothouse. When, therefore,
this mass of helpless beings was
thrown upon its own resources by the
act of emancipation and when the pro-
tection of slavery had been withdrawn,
the direst wretchedness and suffering

A Brlef Interview.
The late Rev. R. S. Storrs was a very
fiard man to interview, for he resented
the inquisitiveness of the press and was
Icy to its agents.
One evening a reporter attended a
reception at his house and in the
course of the evening touched his arm
and' whispered: "Doctor, I'm from the
-. I want the names of guests and
all the particulars." -
"Yes," Dr. Storrs whispered in rtuirDp.
"this way, this way." And, t ,ng the
young man's arm, he c::,rted him to
the front door and ;,t him out

"wants to become an actor."
"Yes," replied his fair daughter, "he
does think of appearing before the foot-

The Peculiar Adventure of a Wed-
ding Ring.
"About the queerest fish story I
know of," said a highly truthful look-
ing man-indeed, he was a clergyman-
"happened to me at a little lake in Wis-
consin, where I used to summer with
my family. One day my wife was out
In our boat with a party of friends.
She was letting her hand trail in the
water, without thinking about its
shrinking effect, and when she finally
took her hand in her wedding ring was
gone. The lake was deep at that point,
and although we made considerable
effort to recover the ring it was not
"Naturally it worried her a good deal
and the next year she would not go
back to the same place, nor did we
go the following year. but the third
year we went there again, and one day
I was in the woods about a mile from
the lake with my boy, trying to got a
shot at some denizen of the forest or
other. As we went peering around
among the trees to get a squirrel wq
had seen I noticed something shining
on a twig of a tree about 25 feet from
the ground. I sent my boy up after it,
and when he came back I was more
than astonished to find that the shining
thing was my wife's wedding ring.
"How it ever got there was a mys-
tery at first, but I was not a believer in
fairies and that sort of thing, so I be-
gan to investigate for material causes.
The top of the tree had deadened, and
with a suspicion in my mind I sent my
boy up to see what signs might be
above the green boughs. He called
down to me presently that there were
remains of a fishhawk's nest in the
forks of the tree, and. putting this
and that together. I came to the conclu-
sion that the hawk had caught the fish
that had gobbled up my wife's ring in
the lake and had taken it to the nest
for the young hawks. They didn't
care for' jewelry and had left that
part of the fish in the nest, from which.
as the nest was blown to pieces by the
wind and beaten by the storms, th*
ring had dropped out and by chance
had caught on the twig where I found
it In any event, if that was not the
way it got there. how did it? For ft
surely was there, and my wife is wear-
Ing it today."-Exchange.

Wore His Old Hat Home.
They were talking about getting bald.
"Men wear their hats too much." the
doctor was saying. "I have noticed
that a great many business men wear
them in their offices. The head should
be kept bare as much as possible."
"My partner always wear an old straw
hat around the store." repliedl a Market
street merchant. "He wears this in
winter as well as in summer, or at least
he did until last winter, when be had
an experience that cured him of It
"One very cold afternoon he left the
office early, and as he walked briskly
through the street he noticed In a rather
absentmlinded way that he was attract-
ing considerable attention. People turn-
ed and looked after him and laughed.
It was not until he had walked five or
six'blocks that he realized what it all
meant. He met a lady of his acquaint-
ance. and when he went to raise his
hat be found that he was still wearing
the old straw one. having forgotten to
change it when he left the office. For-
tunately there was a hat store near by,
and he went in and bought one more
suitable to the season."-Philadelphia

A Bell That 'Never Rang.
A curious legend is that connected
with the bell of St. Mura. in Ireland.
The bell was said to have descended
from the sky ringing loudly, but as it
approached the earth the tongue de-
tached itself and returned to the skies.
The people concluded from this that
the bell was never to be profaned by
sounding on earth, but was to be kept
for purposes more holy and heneflcent.

lven the State Legisature would not
make a mistake in approprlatins ten
or fifteen thousand dollars a year for
a State agricultural society and -to
hold a State fr in some partof
Florida every year. Part of the
amount appropriated by the county
commissioners could be used to defray
the. expenses of a county exhibit at
the State fairs.
In this way every county in the State
would be properly represented at the
fairs, and much good would accrue
from the advertising received. We
hope to see the press of the State take
this matter up. By getting the farm-
ers and public officials, as well as the
citizens generally, interested, much
good can be accomplished.


Man is a peculiar biped. He could
be transcendently happy with the op-
portunities God has given him, were
he always to look on the bright side of
things. The "golden rule" is the grind-
est guide of life, but it has been cast
to the winds, and another rule substi-
tuted in its place.
Instead of doing unto others as we
would have them do unto us, many
people seem to be working under a
principle that is the direct antithesis-
"do others, or they will do you." This
inclination is probably what inspired
the poet to write "Man's inhumanity
to man makes countless thousands
Man only (considered God's noblest
work) clogs his -happiness with care.
He crosses streams before coming to'
the bridge. He pmes for the impossi-
ble, sighs over what might have been,
and instead of enjoying to the full the
blessings of nature, destroys what hap-
piness there is within his reach by
thoughts of what may be.
Given good health, an able body,
ability to make an honest living, an
abundance of money, and practically
everything that the heart desires, man
should be happy. But he is not. Be-
cause he borrows trouble from the fu-
ture and sighs after the unattainable.
Deprive a man of all these blessings,
and then he might have some cause
for being unhappy, provided he looked
on the dark side of things. Even then
there is no excuse for giving away en-
tirely to gloomy forebodings. There
is still something to be thankful for,
to look forward to and be hopeful
about. Those who wish to do their
duty have little time to devote to vain
regrets. They should remember that
self-sacrifice on behalf of others is one
way to help lighten our own burdens.
Of course it is discouraging to realize
that our efforts are often misunder-
stood and unappreciated, but even that
is not a sufficient reason for becom-
ing despondent and worrying over
imaginary or real troubles. Thi best
way is to look on the bright side of
life, avoid as much as possible the
shadows, and bask in bright sunlight,
remembering that as long as we pos-
sess a spark of life there is something
to be thankful for.

Bulletin number 27 from the Bureau
of Animal Industry at Washington
gives exhaustive information concern-
ing this breed, which cannot fail to
promote the growing popularity of the
useful little beast, says the Epitomist.
The Israelites, far back ia the anti.-ui-
ty of Biblical times, it seems, made
good use of him, and tle Turks have
brought him on down to the present
day, in all the purity of that ancient
stock which may have furnished the
royal feasts of Solomon, and supplied
the fabric which gowned the imperial
queen of Sheba. For all of whic i he
has his "soft, silky, lhAtrouis white
hair" to thank probably more than his
gifted appetite. That he is frisky, and
has ambition for dizzy, heights, the
writer can attest, for this very morn-
ing he found the patriarch of the flock
on the tip-top of the .high barn of the
Epitomist Experiment Station, with a
haughty smirk on his aristocratic face
that only belongs to pedigree and
which no base born goat can ever hope
to attain. The Angor- goat hIas been
working his way into favor gradually
in this country for years, and reports
from all parts indicate that he has
come to stay, in spite of all ill advised
booming of fads that come and go.

makes him one of the things that we

"THEREFORE when thou doest thine
alms, do not sound a trumpet before
thee, as the hypocrites do in the syna-
gogues and in the streets, that they
may have glory of men." Some peo-
ple would not give anything if their

good, in distributing his vast wealth.

promise a nobler standard of manhood
and womanhood than their parents
maintain? While some conditions in-
dicate improvement, there are others,
hardly existing fifty years ago, that
may reasonably be regarded with a deo-
gree of appreciation. Society of home
and school, discipline, the absence of
our young men from church, the in-
creasing prevalence of certain perni-
cious habits, and th; congestion of our
population in towns and cities are a
few of these conditions.
Parents, preachers and teachers are
mainly responsible in these matters.

We were in Tallahassee the first of
this week and had a conversation with
State Superintendent W. N. Sheats.
He stated emphatically that he was go-
ing to break up the practice of issuing
temporary certificates to teachers by
county superintendents if he had to
call an examilitton every month in the
year. He has a right to call an exam-
ination at any time he deems it neces-
sary. He stated that some county su-
perintendents continued to issue tem-
porary certificates from time to time
to parties who refused to take the ex-
amination and allowing them to teach
when there were other teachers who
had taken the erinminAtion in the coun-
ty and held certificates, who could not
get schools.
We think that Mr. Sheats is working
on the right line, and feel sure that if

his plans are adopted and carried q9
by our county boards of public instrp
tion, our school system will soon et
in good shape. We were in sympWal
with our teachers until last satar
when the summed normal was Mb
here. Many of our teachers who *J
barely obtained third grade certilaW
refused to- attend and better is'A
themselves for teaching. We do is
know whether there are any teado*
in our county who hold temporary 0-
tificates or not; if there is, they 1W
make preparations to take the exaz
nation, as Mr. Sheats will call an *
amination in January for every coM
ty where there has been temporal?
certificates issued since the last a-
amination.-Westville Advocate.

His Test.
A dealer in pictures who makes it his
business to find as many new painters
as possible, both in this country and
abroad, was asked in regard to his
methods of selecting pictures to buy.
IIe was very frank in his talk, and one
thing which he said is shrewd enough
to be worth quoting.
"Of course." he said, "with my expe-
rience I am able to judge whether
there is promise in a painter's work,
but I never buy with any idea of put-
ting the painter on my list until I have
seen the man and talked with him my-
self. I always watch him closely,,and
I never buy his pictures unless his eye
lights up when I talk to him about his
work and about his profession."
The artist whose heart was really In
his work could not discuss it without
kindling, and the man who did not
paint from the heart was not the one
whose pictures the. dealer wanted.

CmpoUsitleo a oLove.
Love is a thing that makes people
think each other pretty when nobody
else does.
It causes two persons to be awful
quiet when you're round and also quiet
when you're not round-only in a dif-
ferent way.
It also causes people to sit together
on one end of a bench when there's
heaps of room on the other end.
Nurses has it and sometimes police-
men. That's when they don't know
where you are, and you have lots of
fun playing on the grass.
Husbands and wives has it, but most
generally only lovers.
Old people don't have much, 'cause
It has to be about dimples and red
cheeks and fluffy curls and lots of
things which old people don't ever

Upeelmens of the Hospitality of the
Southern Mountaineer.
The latchstring hangs outside every
cabin door if the men folk are at home,
but you must shout "'Helio!" always
outside the fence.
"We uns is pore," you will be told,
"but y'u're welcome ef y'u kin put up
with what we have."
After a stay of a week at a mountain
cabin a young "furriner" asked what
his bill was. The old mountaineer
waved his hand. "Nothin," he said,
"'cept come ag'n!"
A belated traveler asked to stay all
night at a cabin. Th' mountaineer an-
swered that his wife was sick, and
they were "sorter out of li:du's to eat,
but he reckoned he moiu.g!t step over
to a neighbor's an borrow some." lie
did step over, and hl" was gone three
hours. He brought back a little bag
of meal, and tu(y La i co;'u bread and

stranger asked how far away his next
neighbor lived. "A leede the rise of
six miles. I reckon," was the answer.
"Which way?"
"Oh, jes' over the mountain thar."
He had stepped six miles over the
mountain and back for that little bag
of meal. and he would allow Lis guest
to pay nothing next morning.
I have slept with :uine otllers in 'a sin-
gle room. The ho.4t gave upt his bed to

would suffer no one to pay a cent for

and was running from the sheriff at
that very time.
Two outlaw sons were supposed to

"In handling a big snake you must
always touch him with a soft, smooth.
gliding motion of the hand, making it
feel to him as much as possible like
the touch of another snake, and, be-
sides; you must be careful to keep his
tall out straight. Keep the tail straight,
and he can't coil on you. His bite is
nothing, for he has not poison, but his
coil around your leg or arm or body
will crush the bones.
"The poisonous snakes-the water,
moccasins, rattlesnakes and copper-
heads-are bought for zoos. Now and
then a doctor buys them heavily for
awhile. lIe wants to experiment with
their poison. After he has been bitten
two or three times he stops buying.
"There are a number of people who
buy snakes for pets. These people al-
ways. without an exception, make pets
also of rats, mice and turtles. Any one
fond of snakes is sure to be fond of
those other things too. They keep their
snakes and turtles and rats as near as
possible to them. Often they keep
them in their bedrooms. There was a
young man who used to come here last
year after pine snakes-a university
student That young man would sit'
with his hand in among the coils of a
eageful of snakes for hours. He would
take one's head in his hands and lift
its face close up to his own and gaze
for a long time in its eyes. Then he
would hold it off and stroke it and
study its changing colors in a kind ot
trance. I don't know what pleasure ot
satisfaction he got out of the snakes.
He bought over a dozen fron) me dur-
Ing the year and kept them in his bed-
room in a boarding house. iThey all
escaped one. night through a rathole
and got among the neighbors and rais-

Ability to Stand Torture a Test of
Masculle Devotion.
Among the Arabs of upper Egypt the
youth who proposes to a girl must sub-
m't to a whipping at the hands of all
her male relatives, and. says a dry
narrator. "if he wishes to be consider-
ed worth having he must receive the
chatisement. which is sometimes ex-
ceedingly severe, with an expression
of enjoyment"
Not infrequently it is the maiden her-
self who imposes the test. The Saka-
lava girls of Madagascar make their
lovers stand at a short distance from a
clever spear thrower and catch be-
tween the arm and side every weapon
flung at them. If the youth "displays
fear or fails to catch the spear, he is
Ignominiously rejected., ut if there be
no flinching and the spears are caught
he is at once proclaimed an accepted
Worse than this is the trial enforced
upon their suitors by the Dongolowee
girls. When in doubt as to the respec-
tive merits of two rivals, the young la-
dy fastens a sharply pointed knife to
each elbow; then. seating herself be-
tween her lovers, she drives the blades
slowly into their thighs, and the hero
who takes the greatest length of steel
without a murmur wins the bride.
Major Mitchell in his "Expeditions
Into the Interior of Eastern Australia"
says of the natives on the river Darling
that all their ideas .of fighting are as-
sociated with the possession of gins or
wives and that after a battle the wives
"do not always follow their fugitive
husbands from the field, but frequently
go over, as a matter of course, to the
victors." "None but the brave deserve
the fair" is a maxim well understood
of most barbaric races. Chambers'

Kakig steel Ralts.
The rail mll presents many pictures
that appeal strongly to lovers of the
picturesque. Under ordinary circum-
stances the great strands of iron, each
half as long as a city block, slide back
and forth smoothly enough between
the rolls that are stretching them and
pressing them into the required shape,
but a tiny obstacle may at any moment -
turn one of these cables of fire off the
beaten track and twist it Into a hope-
less tangle or wind it like a squirming
snake around some unfortunate work-
When the rolling process has been
completed, the piece of iron slides along
to the great buzzsaws, which cut it up
Into the 30 foot rails known to the rail-
way traveler. Every time the whirring
#ircular saw clips off one of these
lengths, sparks radiate in every direc-
tion, as though the biggest pyrotech-
nical pinwheel ever devised had been
suddenly set in motion.
When the rail has been cooled and
boles have been drilled in it, It is ready
to start for any part of the world.
The evolution of bars or beams or
sheets from the big steel slabs is gain-
ed by the same general method of pro-
cedure. It is the size and shape of the
grooves in the rolls which determine
the form to be ultimately assumed by
the steel In their clutches.--Century

Absolute Zere.
By "absolute zero" is meant the low-
est temperature compatible with heat-
that point of temperature, in fact, at
which a body would be wholly depriv-
ed of heat and at which the particles
whose motion constitutes heat would
be at rest. This temperature is sup-
posed to be about 274 degrees C. or 461
degrees F.
The term "heat" is here used in its
scientific sense, for as men use the
word in everyday language its signifi-
cance depends on the temperature of
the human body. Men call "warm"
everything with a temperature higher
than their own and "cold" all those
objects which have less beat than they.
In reality, however, the coldest body
known to man is far from being utter-
ly without heat. Ice. for example. has
heat, only in a degree so much below
man's temperature that one can scarce-
ly Imagine it to be anything but "cold."
a term which actually implies a com-
paratively low degree of beat.
Accordingly the zero of thermometers
fs only a conventional point marking a
certain degree of heat. There seems to
be a point, however, where heat ceases
absolutely. and this point it is which is
known in chemistry as the "absolute
Modern Man's Gteat Appetite.
Custom seems to have decreed that
three "square" meals a day should be
the allowance for the citizen of the
United States and Canada. and it was
looked upon as being as fixed as the
laws of the Medes and Persians. but
an up town restaurant man states that
a great number of New Yorkers are no
longer satisfied with the regulation
three meals a day. Four meals are
now asked for. breakfast. lunch, din-
ner and supper. The last is no doubt
superfluous for.those who can and do
make three hearty meals out .of the
others, but there must be many who
will learn with pleasure that it is no
longer incumbent upon them to go
"supperless to their bed." The idea
that indigestion may be caused by the
introduction of the fourth meal is ab-
surd.-Scottish American.

A Floral Inseriptloa.
At one time I was pastor of a village
where there was a German undertaker
who was always anxious to please. Be-
cause of his zeal 1p this direction and
his habit of so often getting things
backward he was the butt of a good
many jokes and furnished others many
a hearty laugh. One day 'a customer
of his asked him to telegraph the florist
in a nearby city to send a floral design
representing "Gates Ajar." He hurried
to the phone and. calling up the florist,
said he wished a floral design. The
florist asked what kind. He was puz-
zled, but not defeated, and after some
delay said: "Oh. yes; now I got himl
Heaven wide open; that's what they
want!"-Homiletic Review.

Make a Banana Peel Itself.
A trick which works on a simple
principle is to make a banana peel it-
self. To do this all that is wanted is a
bottle, a ripe banana and a bit of paper
wet with alcohol. Light the paper and
drop it into this bottle. When the air
In the bottle is well heated, set the ba-
nana on end on top and let It do the
rest itself. As the air on the Inside
cools off and contracts the outside pree-
sure pushes the banana down Into the
bottle until It has drawn Iteelf out of its

tures which sing, tncluin4g Mr. Rus-
kin's singing serpents In the vaBey of
Diamonds, yet Mr. Annandale has as-
sured us that there exists in the Malay
peninsula a being which the Malays de-
scribed under the above heading.
It lives In a burrow in the ground
and cheerfully sings, or at least chirps.
But the Malays call everything that
creeps a worm, and the beast which
they really mean is a large kind of
cricket with a'voice.
In the very same part of the world,
however, is a real earthworm, a huge
monster three or four feet in length,
which was discovered not long ago and
which really has a voice, or at least
can produce a sound. The Latin name
of musicus has been given to It on that

"more like twanging a "Jew's harp"
than singing. But any sort of sound
from these silent, gliding creatures is
singing.-London Express.

Jackaso and the Tailore* Bill.
A gentleman in Pennsylvania has a
queer document which came into his
family's possession many years ago
and shows an interesting phase of An-
drew Jackson's character as well as a
glimpse of the simple times of his pres-
idential term.
It appears that a clerk in the state
department contracted a tailor's bill for
$64.50. and the tailor, finding himself
unable to collect the amount, laid the
matter before the president in an ap-
pealing letter.
Jackson promptly decided that this
was a matter to which he must attend
personally, so he transmitted the tai-
lor's letter to the secretary of state.
with this strong recommendation:
Referred to the secretary of state. If on inquiry
the fact stated be true. unless the clerk pays up
his debt let him be forthwith discharged.
The government would become a party to such
swindling provided it permitted its officers to be-
come indebted for necessafies and not see that
they paid their debts out of their salaries.
Honest men will pay their debts. Dishonest
men must not be employed by the government.

Lemon Julee.
A little lemon juice in the water in
which fish is boiled will make it desira-
bly solid, the too frequent lack of ji
boiled fish. Sweetbreads left for an
hour before cooking in a bath of rather
strong dilution of lemon juice are made
white and firm. A few drops of lemon
juice are declared to add a delicious
flavor to scrambled cggs. But a quite
new use is in the preparation of rolled
beef. This requires a rib roast, with
the bones cut out. The juice of a lem-
on is squeezed over the meat. and the
skin of it rolled up in It. The result is
a tender, juicy, aromatic meat. very
grateful to the palate. The Brazilian
beef is highly esteemed for its flavor,
and this is because the cattle pasture
where lemons are 'plentiful and eat
the fallen fruit. which flavors their
flesh.-What to Eat

Wet Weddaln Days Preferred.
The 'idage "Happy is the bride that
the sun shines on" is one that is un-
known in many lands. A Breten bride
takes it unhappily when the day of her
wedding dawns bright and sunny. Rain
on her marriage morn is held to sig-
nify that all her tears are shed and that
she will therefore have a haopy mar-
ried life.
It is said that the Erza of Simbrisk
call the day before the wedding the
weeping day. and the bride and her girl
friends weep as much as possible with
the idea of getting the mourning of life
over, so that only what is joyful may
remain. In some countries this result is
attained by sousing the bride with wa-
ter. The Greeks think that a thorough
drenching of the bride will bring her
lasting good fortune.

Crbshed the Diamond.
*Among historic diamonds one, the

When Turtles Were lMg.
Of the turtles it may be said that
they represent the most ancient type of
all vertebrates, resembling closely as
they do the reptiles of their kind which
existed so far back as the mesozoic era.
There were sea tortoises during that
epoch which measured 20 feet In spread
of flippers, while some tertiary tor-
tolses were not less big In body, meas-
uring 12 feet from bead to tail.

it is the samse with regard to cattle,
sheep, nogs, poultry, and every other
farm animal. The scrub stock eats up
all the profits that might have been
made on a better grade of animals. The
oest is not too good for the farmer.
If he wishes to prosper it is impera-
"tively necessary for him to get the
best of everything.
He must have the best farm horses
and mules obtainable. He must keep
the best cattle possible, the best hogs
and other animals, and -do away with
the unprofitable scrubs. The piney
woods cow is not a good beef animal,
nor is she a profitable miiier. ThV
bucking broncho from Texas is not
fit for a plow horse; he is no good
hauling loads. Then why keep him
when there is no demand for him?

Antiquated, out-of-date tools are an
abomination. Satisfactory results can
'not be attained from their use, and it
is wasteful extravagance to try to farm
with them when good tools can be
bought for very little money.
Keep the best farm implements, use
modern methods, do away with your
scrub stock, farm intelligently and
you will succeed. That's the only way
to be a successful farmer.

Cotton was once styled as "king."
This was many years ago when the
prices were up and there were no
guano bills to settle, says the Suwannee
Democrat. In former days each and
eatery farmer made his own fertilizer;
and the same methods for making this
fertilizer exist now as it did then. Why
then not follow the old rule that pann-
ed out so well, and thus save the ex-
pense of a guano bill? If you had the
money in your pockets that you paid
out for guano you might yet very read-
ily say that cotton is still "king." This,
however, while it is true, does not
warrant the farmer in planting more
cotton and less grain, but less cotton
and more grain. Let the cotton come
in as a side line only, then let the price
be up or down, you have plenty ,'). eat
and your failures in high prices will
not affect you in the least The proof
of this theory of farming will be plain-
ly set forth this coming year, in ns-
much as statistics goes to show that
the grain crops throughout the Stat.?s
are very short; hence the farmer ina
Florida as elsewhere in the South who
has failed to make enough provisions
to do him the coming year will have
to pay dear for what he buys. An ex-
ample of this kind, however, has to
come in order to more forcibly place in
the minds of our farmers of the 3outh

We have lands here (while not so
prolific as the lands of the West) that

to look to the West fir her brcadl?
Not at all. As before stated, iV you
will persist in planting cotton, plant it
only as a side line and make your.
grain crop two or three fold to that
of your cotton crop.
A sweet potatoe crop is far better
than a cotton crop. It requires less
cultivation and produces more dollars
and cents to the acre. Besides, we can
eat the surplus crop. What is better
to keep the wolf from the door than a
good, nice sweet potato? With these
facts before the farmer why should he
persist in planting almost exclusive
cotton crops? a They will evidently

BALTIMORE, Md., March 3o, 1o01.
Getlekxn :- Being entirely cured of deafness. thanks to your treatment, I will now give you
a full history of my case, to be used at your discretion.
About five years ago my right ear began to sing, and this kept on getting worse, until I lost
my hearing-in this ear entirely.
I underwent a teatment for catarrh, for three months, without any success, c insulted a num-
ber of physicians, among others, the most eminent ear specialist of this city. who told me that
only an operation could help me, and even that only temporarily, that the head noises would
then cease, but the hearing in the affected ear would be lost forever.
I then saw your advertisement accidentally in a New York paper, and ordered your treat-
ment. After I had used it only a few days according to your directions, the noises ceased, and
to-day, after five weeks, my hearing in the diseased ear has been entirely restored. I thank you
heartily and beg to remain Very truly yours.

It is a wise man who knows how to
properly select fertilizers for use on his
farm. At the foundation of all selec-
tions in this line is the stable manure
made on the farm. This always has a
value as humus material, aside from
the value which comes from the plant
food constituents in it It is true that
on some soils and with other crops,
stable manure has a greater value
than on other soils ana with other
crops, and this is simply because in
the one case it supplies plant food de-
tncient in the soil, and in the other
case is itself lacking in the very es-
sential needed by the soil. This being
the case, it becomes almost absolutely
necessary to use chemical fertilizers;
for example, we have a soil that is very
deficient in phosphoric acid, and it
would be almost impossible to bring
this soil up to a point where it would
grow a crop needing large quantities of
phosphoric acid, by dosing it solely
with stable manures. Farmers are fast
learning that they must have more or
less knowledge of soil chemistry in
order to carry on their work success-
fully, and this knowledge cannot be
obtained from newspapers or books.
The only way to gain it is by actual ex-
perimenting with the soil on one's
farm. Such experiments need not be
expensive or on an elaborate scale. It
is sufficient to take small plots and use
on each of them combinations of com-
mercial fertilizers, alone or in con-
nection with stable manure. ,Of course
it is also necessary that the farmer
possess some knowledge of the needs
of certain crops, for it is apparent
that it would be useless to grow cer-
tain crops needing potash very largely
on a plot of ground heavily dosed with
nitrogen and very lightly supplied
with potash. All that can be written
on this subject is simply along the line
of suggestion. The farmer must work
out his own salvation.
I# spite of the fact that the word
dyspepsia means literally bad cook, it
will not be fair for many to lay blame
on the cook if they begin the Christ-
mas Dinner with little appetite and
end it with distress and nausea. It
may .not be fair for any to do that-

let =s hope so for the make of the cook!
The disease d.yupida initfe& a bad
stomv-rb, IMat is a weak stm-ceb,Wrth-
er than bad cook, and for a weak
stomach ere is nothing else equal
to Hood' Sarsaparia. It gives the
stomach r and tone, cures dys-
pepsia, retes appetite, and makes
eating th pleasure it should be.
The being insectivorous, is a
great fri nd, not only to the farmer,
but to nkd In general. You would
be surpr d were you to see gathered
in one pi e the vast number of spiders,
flies, wo and other insects destroy-
ed by o toad in a single day. The.
toad is repulsive looking creature,
but he useful, just the same, and
should protected.
One o the most interesting and ben-
eficial st dies to the farmer,fruit grow-
er or ener, should be that of zoo-
logy, or t least that special part that
teaches im the friends and enemies
of his c ps. For nearly every one of
the pes that destroy either vine,
fruit, sa b or tree there is some par-
asite, i t or larger form of animal.
life preys upon the pest, fre-
quently destroying it entirely. One
such mon creature is the toad,
which thus described by Professor
Gorn4a of the KentucKy Experiment
"Whi ethe farmer sleeps the toad is
search g his lawn and garden and
cornfiel for insects and their relatives.
Cut w s, ants, potato bugs and
chinch ugs are delicacies to him, and
he snas them up steadily with his
loose p of a tongue until his sides
stick t and he can hold no more.
The nu ber and variety of insects with
which e fills his stomach during a
night astonishing."
The d is distinctively the people's
friend. He does his work effectively
and without parade, while the mole,
claimed by some to be the farmer's
friend, burrows his way recklessly
through the ground in its search of in-
sects. jHe destroys everything in his
path, 4nd really does more harm than
good. 'The toad harms nothing, but
does an immense amount of good. May
his nupnbers increase.

Mrs. Slade. It had the same troubled
expression I had noticed before, but
:now blended with more of anxiety.
Tne boy went out at the call of- his
mother; and when a new customer en-
tered, I noticed that Flora, the daugh-
ter, came in to wait upon him. I no-
ticed, too, that while she poured out
the liquor, there was a heightened
color on her face, in which I fancied
that I saw a tinge of shame. It is





She believed that her love was strong
enough to win him from all evil allure-
ments; and, as for tnis world's goods,
they were matters in which her maiden
fancies rarely busied themselves.
"Well. Dark days came for her,
poor soul! And yet, in all the dark-
ness of her earthly lot, she has never,
it is said, been anything but a loving,
forbearing, self-denying wife to Mor-
gan. And he-fallen as he is, and pow-
erless in the grasp of the master In-
temperance-has never, I am sure, hurt
her with cruel words. Had he added
tuese, her heart would, long ere t.Jis,
have broken. Poor Joe Morgan! Poor
Fanny! Oh, what a curse is this thing
The man, warming with his theme,
had spoken with an eloquence I had
not expected from his lips. Slightly
over-mastered by his feelings, he paus-
ed for a moment or two, and then he
"It was unfortunate for Joe, at least,
that Slade sold his mill and became a
tavern-keeper; for Joe had a sure
berth, and wages regularly paid. He
didn't always stick to his work; but
would go off on a spree now and then;
but Slade bore with all this, and work-
ed harder himself to make up for his
hand's shortcoming. And no matter
what definclency the little store-room
at home might show, Fanny Morgan
never found her meal-barrel empty
without knowing where to get it re-
"But, after Slade sold his mill, a sad
change took -place. The new owner
was little disposed to pay wages to a
hand wan would not give him all his
time during working hours; and in less
than two weeks from the day he took
possession, Morgan was discharged.
Since then ne has been working about
at odd jobs, earning scarcely enough
to buy the liquor it requires to feed the
inordinate thirst that is consuming
him. I am not disposed to blame Si-
mon Slade for the wrong-doing of Mor-
gan; but here is a simple fact in the
case-if he had kept on at the useful
calling of a miller, he would have sav-
ed this man's family from want, suf-
fering, and a lower deep of misery than
that into which they have already fal-
len. I merely state it, and you can
draw your own conclusion. It is one
o. the many facts, on the other side of
this tavern question, which it will do
no harm to mention. I have noted a
good many facts besides, and one is,
that before Slade opened the 'Sickle
and Sheaf.' he did all in his power to
save his early friend from the curse of
intemperance; now he has become his
tempter. Heretofore, it was his hand
that provided the means for his family
to live in sonara small degree of com-
fort; now he takes the poor pittance
the wretched man earns, and dropping
it into his till., forgets the wife and
children at home, who are hungry for
the bread this money should have pur-
"Joe Morgan, fallen as he is, sir, is
no tool. His mind sees quickly yet;
and he rarely utters a sentiment that
is not full of meaning. When he
spoke of Slade's heart growing as hard
in ten years as his millstones, he was
not uttering .words at random, nor
merely indulging in a harsh sentiment,
little caring whether it were closely
applicable or not. That the indurating
process has begun, he, alas! was too
sadly conscious."
The landlord had been absent from
the room for some time. He left soon
after Judge Lyman, Harvey Green and
Willy Hammond withdrew, and I did
not see him again during the evening.
His son Frank was left to attend at the
bar; no very hard task, for not more
than half a dozen called in to drink
from the time Morgan left until the
bar was closed.
While Lyon was giving me the brief
history just recorded, I noticed a little
incident that caused a troubled feel-
ing to pervade my mind., After a man,
for whom the landlord's son had pre-
pared a fancy drink, had nearly emp-
tied his glass, he set it down upon the
counter and went out A tablespoon-
ful or two remained in the glass, and I
noticed Frank, after smelling at it
two or three times, put the glass to
his lips and sip the sweetened liquor.
The favor proved agreeable; for after
tasting it, he raised the glass again
and drained every arop.
"Frank!" I heard a low voice, in a
warning tone, pronounce the name,
and glancing towards a door partly
opened, that led from the inside of
the bar to the yard, I saw the face of

who would have oyppaw thwr- most
stubborn reis-tance to hid fellow-men,
had they sought to force him trom the
room, going passively, almost meekly
out, led by that little child-I could
not, for a time, turn my thoughts from
the image thereof! And then thought
bore me -to the wretched home, back
to which the gentle, loving child had
taken her father, and my heart grew
faint in me as indignation busied itself
with all the' misery there.
And Willy Hammond. The little
that I had heard and seen of him great-
ly interested me in his favor. Ah!
upon what dangerous ground was he
treading. How many pit-falls awaited
his teet-how near they were to the
brink of a fearful precipice, down
which to fall was certain destruction!
How beautiful had been his life-prom-
ise! Alas! the clouds were gathering
already, and the low rumble of the dis-
tant thunder presaged the coming of a
fearful tempest. Was there none to
warn himn of the danger? Alas! all
might now come too late, for so few
who enter the path in which his steps
were treading will hearken to friendly
counsel, or heed the solemn warning.
Where was he now? This question re-
curred over and over again. .He had
len the bar-room with Judge Lyman
and Green early in the evening, and
had not made his appearance since.
Who and what was Green? And Judge
Lyman, was he a man of principle
One with whom it was safe to trust a
youth like Willy Hammond?
While I mused thus, the bar-room
door opened, and a man past the prime
of life, with a somewhat florid face,
which gave a strong relief to the gray,
almost white hair that, suffered to
grow freely, was pushed back, and lay
in heavy masses on his coat collar, en-
tered with a hasty step. He was al-
most venerable in appearance; yet,
there was in his dark, quick eyes the
brightness of unquenched loves, the
fires of which were kindled at the al-
tars of selfishness and sensuality. This
I saw at a glance. Thene was a look
of concern on his face, aq he threw his
eyes around the bar-room; and he
seemed disappointed, I thought, at
finding it empty.
"Is Simon Slade here?"
As I answered in the negative, Mrs.
Slade entered through the door that
opened from the yard, and stood be-
hind the counter.
"Ah, Mrs. 'Slade! Good evening,
mauam," he said.
"Good evening, Judge Hammond."
"Is your husband at home?"
"I believe he is," answered Mrs.
Slade. "I think he's somewhere about
the nouse."
"Ask him to step here, will you?"
Mrs. Slade went out Nearly five
minutes went by, during which time
Judge Hamimond paced the floor of the
bar uneasily. Then the landlord made
his appearance. The free, open, manly
and self-satisfied expression of his
countenance, which I hau remarked on
alighting from the stage in the after-
noon, was gone. I noticed at once the
change, for it was striking. He did
not look steadily into the face of Judge
Hammond, who asked him in a low
voice, if his son had been in during the
"He was here," said Slade.
"He came in some time after dark
and stayed, maybe, an hbur."
"And hasn't been here since?"
"It's nearly two hours since he left
the bar-room," replied the landlord.
Judge Hammond seemed perplexed.
There was a degree of evasion in
Slade's manner that he could hardly
help noticing. To me it was all ap-
parent, for I had lively suspicions that
made my observation acute.
Judge Hammond crossed his arms
behind him, and took three or four
strides about the floor.
"Was Judge Lyman here tonight?"
"He was," answered Slade.
"Did he and Willy go out together?"
The question seemed an unexpected
one for the landlord, blade appeared
slightly confused, and did not answer
"I-I rather think they did," he said,
after a brief hesitation.
"Ah, well! Perhaps he is at Judge
Lyman's. I will call over there."
And Judge Hammond left the oar-
"Would you like to retire, sir?"
said the landlord, now turning to me,
with a forced smile-I saw that it was
forced. *




Dyspepsia is unrecognized in

against only one of them is vain.

evils that ever attach themselves to a
house of piblie entertainment lHe
had bait entered on the businem last
year. There was much to be learned,
pondered, and corrected. KEaprlenA,
I doubt not, has lead to many impor-
tant changes in the manner of conduct-
ing the establishment, and especially
in what pertains to the bar."
As I thought thus, my eyes glanced
through the half open door, and rested
on the face of Simon Slade. He was
standing behind the' bar--evidently all
alone in the room-with has head bent
in a musing attitude. At first I was
in some doubt as to the identity of the
singularly changed countenance. 'Two
oeep perpendicular seams lay sharply
defined on. his forehead-the ar;:I o0
his eyebrows was gone, and from each
corner of his compressed lips, lines
were seen reaching half way to the
chin. Blending with slightly troubled
expression, was a strongly marked
selfishness, evidently brooding over the
consummation of its purpose. For
some moments I sat gazing on his face,
half doubting at times if it were really
that of Simon Slade. Suddenly, a
gleam flashed over-an ejaculation was
uttered, and one clenched hair' was
brought down, with a sharp stroke,
into the open palm of the other. The
landlord's mind had reached a conclu-
sion, and was resolved upon action.
There were no warm rays in the A~eam
of light that irradiated his counten-
ance-at least none for my heart,
which felt under them an almost icy
"Just the man I was thinking about,"
I heard the landlord say, as some one
entered the bar, while his whole man-
ner underwent a sudden change.
"The old saying is true," was ans-
wered in a voice, the tones of which
were familiar to my ears.
"Thinking of the old Harry?" said
True, literally, in the present case,"
I heard the landlord remark, though in
a much lower tone; "for, if you are not
the devil himself, you can t be farther
removed than a second cousin."
A low, gurgling laugh met his little
sally. There was something in it un-
like a human laugh, that it caused my

along my veins.
I heard nohling more except the
murmur of voices in the bar, for a
hand shut the partly-opened door that
led from the sitting-room.
Whose was that voice? I recalled its
tones, and tried to fix in my thought
the person to whom 'it belonged, but
was unable to do so. I was not very
long in doubt, for on stepping out upon
the porch in front of the tavern, the
well-remembered face of Harvey Green
presented itself. He stood in the bar-
room door, and was talking earnestly
to Slade, whose back was towards me.
I saw that he recognized me, although
I had' hot passed a word with him on
the occasion of my former visit; and
there was a lighting up of his counten-
ance as if about to speak-but I with-
drew my eyes from his face to avoid
the unwelcome greeting. When I
looked at him again, I saw that he was
regarding me with a sinister glance,
which was instantly withdrawal In
what broad, black characters was the
word "tempter" written on his face!
How was it possible for any one to
look thereon, and not read the warning
Soon after, he withdrew into the bar
room, and the landlord'came and took
a seat near me on the porch.
"How is the 'Sickle and Sheaf' com-
ing?" I inquired.
"First rate," was the answer-"First
"As well as you expected?"
"Satisfied with your experiment?"
"Perfectly. Couldn't get me back to

were to make me a present of it."
"What of the mill?" I asked. "How

"About as I thought it would be."
