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.

Trains Will Soon be Running

to Bainbridge


Bridge Across Oclockonee


Nearly Finished.

Work on the Georgia, Florida and
Alabama railroad (the Georgia Pine)
is progressing in a very satisfactory
manner. From the Tallahassee end
the road has been constructed to the
Oclocknee river, while a bridge has
been almost completed across that
stream. From Bainbridge this way,
tWe work has been equally rapid. The
road-bed has been graded the entire
distance, and track laid almost to the
Oclocknee river. Trains leave Tallahas-
see two or three times a day for the
bridge, where they are nearly in hail-
ing distance to the trains from Bain-
bridge. In a very short time the work
of construction will be finished, when
a familiar cry at the depot will be "all
aboard for Bainbridge."
The completion of this road will
mean much for Tallahassee. It will
give us more direct communication
with the West, Northwest and North,
and insure competing freight rates to
and from those sections. It will also
open up to cultivation one of the rich-
est agricultural sections in the South.
The people along the line, and in Tal-
lahassee as well, are very anxious to
see the road in operation. The work
has been delayed so long that many
had lost heart, but the news that their
hopes are about to be realized will be
joyfully received.

esteemed citizens, died last Saturday

lived in Chicago, IlL, between thirty
and forty years, and moved from there
to Tallahassee about four years ago.
Wherever he has lived he was known
as a noble Christian ma i, and had the

Ballots are Now Coming in at

a Lively Rate


Much Interest is Being Manifested
in the Race.,,

Our readers are beginning to wake
up in regard to the contest for the
most popular young lady. One or two
new candidates have been added th

lively rate, some from Mississippi, and
others from Georgia and Alabama,
showing that people outside the State
are taking an interest in the contest.
Those who have an idea as to who is
the most popular young ady in the city,
and wish to vote for her, .should send
in their coupons at once. Don't wait
until the last minute, but hurry them
up. Of course there are many popular
young ladies in Tallahassee, but there
is one more popular than all the others.
Who is she? Her name may be in The
Tallahasseean's list, and it may not
This is for the people to decide, and
the way to settle the question is to
send in the coupons immediately, if
not sooner.
We still have a number of Tallahas-
seeans left, which will be sold at the
regular price, and it will be well to
bear in mind that all ballots must be
on coupons clipped from this paper.
No other kind will be printed or used,
and no partiality will be shown any
one. The contest is open to any young
lady in the city, whose friends may
desire to vote for her.

(Affectionately inscribed to the mem-
ory of Chas. Child.)

He was no hero of the battlefield,
He won no victory in the bloody
Nor sought the warrior's triumph over
He walked along the peaceful paths
of life.

Not his to win the millions on earth,
In that mad race where many thou-
sands run,

Not his to reach the
But grander far the

upper round of

triumph he has

He won the victory over pain and
The plaudits of the angel throng
On him was placed the crown "Eternal
And 'round him shines the light of
God's own love.

Oh! victory grand beyond the thought
of man!
Oh! crown too bright for any human
Oh! robe of light, illumed by God's own
These are the triumphs that around
him lie.

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 obstinate case, no matter how
hard a drinker. Our records show the
marvelous transformation of thou-
sands of drunkards into sober, in-

Rheumatism is a blood disease and

many years of study and research, an
absolute specific for the most aggra-

Acute, Chronic, Muscular, Sciatic or In-

A SAGE suggests that the longevity
of the ancients was due to the fact that
they had no cooK books. There may
be something in the idea. At any rate,
the ancients never analyzed their
drinking water, and were not aware of
the deadly parasites investing the wells
and springs, waiting for whom they
could devour.
THE House Committee on Revision
of Laws says that the correct form is:
"the United States is"; not "the United
States are." Speaking or writing of the
whole, as a nation, the singular verb
should be used. Many people say "the
committee are," when it should be "the
committee is." The same rule will ap-
ply to the United States.
ADMIRAL SCHLEY'S appeal for justice
is .now in the hands of the Rough

weighed in the balance. Will he be
found wanting, or will be measure up
-to the requirements? The opportunity
of a life-time is now within the Presi-
dent's grasp.
A 'esteemed contemporary up in the

While The Tallahasseean has en-
deavored to be a friend to every per-

the avowed purpose of putting their

of them, though it is a source of niuch
gratification that the exceptions "are
few and far between."
The fact that it has lived without
certain patronage and is today self-
supporting, with, a rapidly increasing
business may be a surprise to a great
many. Every issue of the paper is a
living, circulating, convincing witness
to the fact, however, and its bona fide,

cation of any kind at the capital of

Every citizen of Florida mourns the
death of that grand old man, Dr. John
L. Crawford, who for the past twenty-
one years has been Secretary of State,
having served under the administra-
tions of Governors Bloxham, Perry,
Flemiqg, Mitchell, Bloxham, and for
one year in Governor Jennings' cabi-
net. Of all the men who have held
public office in Florida, Dr. Crawford
was probably alone in having no ene.
mies. He was possessed of that rugged
nonesty and sterling integrity foa
which Andrew Jackson was noted, and
no power on earth could swerve him
from what he considered the path of
duty. Though he had lived his allotted
time the State can ill afford to lose
such a noble character from its citizen-
ship.-Gainesville Sun.
"THE two best papers ever published
in the State are The Tallahasseean and
the Ocala Banner," said "Old Nat"
Walker while in the city Tuesday last
on legal business. "Why, sir, it is a

Talahasseean It is even better than

deal." To be classed with such a ver-
satile writer as Frank Harris is an
honor duly appreciated by the humble
scribes of Tne Tallahasseean, and to be
told that they are even better-well, it
just makes them blush, even though
they are getting accustomed to having
complimentary things said about this

"This is where the Chinese of San
Francisco are stronger and wiser than
we. What an excellent thing for the
American stage in general if every
poor theatrical show that come out
from New York were hooted and pelted
off the boards. We'd get unfailing,
good attractions then, because the New
York syndicates would realize through
their pockets that we wouldn't stand
for anything less. Suppose we think
over this story of Pye Tsung in San
Francisco. We may get much benefit
from the cogitation."
This is all well enough were it not
evident that the argument is based
upon a wrong conception. To the
writer it is evident San Francisco's ob-
tuse Chinese inhabitants have been
reading dime novels, portraying West-
ern life in the early settlement of Cali-
fornia and have misinterpreted it as
the history of deeds performed by the
"Melikin man." Wishing to emulate
him in their new surroundings they
fling vegetables, hen fruit, etc., at the
This is the first opportunity dime
novel writers have nad of coming to
the front as public opinion moulders
for a long time. Why rob them of the
one ray shot across the pathway of
their depraved careers and give the
credit to a people who have not yet
quit roasting missionaries when they
stray too far into the interior of their
native country?





The prizes offered by The Tallahas-

forcefully bring our county into prom-

anything ever yet done. Every man in

Great consternation was felt by the
friends of M. A. Hogarty, of Lexington,
Ky., when they saw he was turning
yellow. His skin slowly changed color,
also his eyes, and he suffered terribly'.
His malady was Yellow Jaundice. He
was treated by the best doctors, but
without benefit. Then he was advised
to try Electric Bitters, the wonderful
Stomach and Liver remedy, and he
writes: "After taking two bottles I was
wholly cured." A trial proves its
matchless merit for all Stomach, Liver
and Kidney troubles. Only 25c. Sold

The Talahasseean is desirous that
the farmers of Leon county engage in
the cultivation of watermelons and
cantaloupes, on an extensive scale.
No better soil can be found anywhere
for this sort of farming, while the cli-
mate is particularly favorable.
In fact, the farms of Leon county
possess all the elements of success for
the intelligent, up-to-date tiller of the
soil. It is rich and well watered, and
is adapted to as great a variety of
crops as any land. It has been satis-
factorily demonstrated that straw-
berries of the richest flavor and largest
size will yield abundantly. The same
may be said with regard to plums,
peaches, pears, grapes. All kinds of
vegetables, grains, hay, tobacco, etp.,
do remarkably well, while it is a well
known fact that the finest cantaloupes
and watermelons on earth are grown
In the past our farmers have not de-
voted as much attention as they should
to the cultivation of cantaloupes and
watermelons. Freight rates have been
so high that they could not be shipped
with profit, and of course the home
market did not offer sufficient induce-
ment to go into the business on a large

Hqn. Nat Walker, of Wakulla coun-
ty, was here Tuesday from Crawford-
vill*- on legal business. "Old Nat" ap-
peared before the State Pardoning
board in behalf of Will Gavin, colored.
It will be remembered that young
Gavin was indicted at the spring term
of the Wakulla Circuit Court, 1899, for
the Inurder of Spencer Brann, also col-
oredi At the spring term in 1900, he
was (convicted of murder in the second
degree, and sentenced to the peniten-
tiar' for life. An appeal was taken to
the Supreme Court, which affirmed the
decision of the Circuit Court, the chief
justice dissenting on the ground of in-
suffiiency of evidence.
Upon this ground, and backed by a
petition signed by over four hundred of
the 'best citizens of Wakulla county,
Mr..Walker appeared before *the Par-
donfng Board Tuesday, asking that
Gardin be pardoned. After reviewing
the ,case carefully, the petition was

admitted having fired the shot that
killed Brann, but the killing was pure-
ly accidental. He had fired at a whip-

distance down the road, happened to be

Per curiam:
1. A final decree rendered in pur-
suance of a previous decree pro con-
fesso may be set aside after the lapse
of the period of twenty days from its
entry, whereby it has become absolute
under section 1446 of the Revised Stat-
utes, but an application to set aside
such a final decree after the expiration
of twenty days from its entry should
never be entertained from a mere de-
sire to let in a defence on the merits,
but only where strong and uwnaroidable
circumstances exist excusing failure to
answer at the proper time.
2. To authorize the granting of an
application to set aside a final decree,
which has become absolute under sec-
tion 1446 of the Revised Statutes, for
the purpose of permitting a defence to
be interposed, it must be shown that
there was deceit, surprise or irregular-
ity in obtaining the decree, that the de-
fendant acted bona fpde and with rea-
sonable diligence, that he has a meri-
torious defence, and that strong and
unavoidable circumstances exist ex-
cusing the failure to answer at the
proper time.
3. Affidavits sworn to by defendants
and filed in resistance of a preliminary
application for the appointment of a
receiver, and neither purporting to be,
nor intended as formal answers to a

bill of complaint will not be regarded
as answers so as to preclude the entry
of a decree pro confess if answers are
not seasonably filed.
4. Neither mutual mistake of asso-
ciate counsel as to the one charged
with the duty of preparing and filing
answers, nor the erroneous supposition
that affidavits filed in resistance of an
application for the appointment of a
receiver would preclude the entry of a
decree pro con-fesso, nor the fact that
counsel for defendants supposed no ac-
tion would be taken until the court
passed upon such application for ap-
pointment of a receiver, constitute cir-
cumstances authorizing the setting
aside of a final decree under the stat-
5. A decree setting aside a final de-
cree, which has become absolute under
the statute, for the purpose of permit-
ting a defence to be interpreted, will be
reversed on appeal where it is not
shown that such circumstances existed
as to authorize the action of the court
in setting aside the decree, and the ac-
tion in that regard is assigned as error.

spent Sunday in Tallahassee." If you
say they "Sundayed," why not say
"Thursdayed," "Fourth of Julyed,"
"Juned," or "Thanksgivinged?" It is
hardly necessary to say "Sunday morn-
ing at 11 a. m.," or "Dr. Rush, M. D."
If the word "morning" is used, "p. m."
is superfluous, and if you begin with
"Dr." don't end with "M. D."
OUR old friend, Mr. B. Bassett, form-
erly of Tallahassee, is now one of Pun-
ta Gorda's leading merchants. Mr.
Bassett evidentnly believes in the use
of printer's ink, as he has an ad in the
Punta Gorda Herald. Yet a look at that
same ad will convince any one that he
is not giving the proper attention to
this branch of his business, as he is
still advertising holiday goods.. A word
to the wise is sufficient-that ad ought
to be changed every week.
A movement is on foot in Tallahas-

organized militia of the South. The
company will have a capital stock of
$2,500, divided into shares of $10 each.
Enough stock has already been sub-

in New England, was presented at the
Academy of Music yesterday afternoon
at matinee, and last night. The play
is full of laughable situations, and was
well received by the audience at both
%Verformances, each character evoking
applause that was well merited. The
musical specialties by Miss Carrie Her-

pany deserve special mention. The
songs were catchy, the music harmon-

Finally the young girl went over and
sat beside her, whereupon little Rachel
flounced her skirts, puckered up her
forehead and, clinching her hand, ex-
claimed. "Oh. dear, but I'm mad!"
The teacher was surprised, for Ra-
chel had seemed to be laboring under
a delightful secret. "And why is little
Miss Sunshine angry?" asked the in-
"Well, everybody was mad at our
