OX A GEORGIA RIVER. -
LIFE ALONG THE BANKS OF THE
WORLD FAMOUS SUWANEE.
Poor and Shirtless Settlors According to a,
Kortb era Traveler Bow They Regarded
the lankeo Who Sought In Vain For
Their Pride In the Stream.
All tl.e world knows of the Suwanee riv
er through the song that has Immortalized
the stream, but not one in ten can tell you
where the Snwanee river is, where it rises
orwhitber it flows. As a matter of fact
the ma; shows that it rises in Georgia,
flows south through Florida and empties
into thi) gulf of Mexico.
Aloni; its banks in Florida the land is
low and marshy, and there is not much in
the scenery to inspire sentiment, tender or
pathetic In Georgia there are many pretty
spotea ong ils banks, but the trouble of
reaching them takes away, in a great meas
ure, tho enjoyment they impart.
I wa disappointed in the river and its
scenery, but what the river lacked the na
tives al ong its shores made up to me. The
"Cracker" has often been delineated and
his characteristics commented on at length,
but he never strikes you twice alike and is
therefore always an object for interest and
study. An unconquerable dislike for labor
and a contentment that strangles ambition
at its birth are the most prominent traits
of his character.
Why I should be poking along the river
and pa Idling up and down without any ap
parent motive and taking pictures was
aometi ing that they could not guess with
out doing some thinking, so they let it go
as a mystery, and when a man is on myste
rious business in that part of Georgia they
take it for granted that he ia hunting for
One old fellow who was sitting on a log
deluding himself with the idea that he was
fishing became so interested in my opera
tions f ir taking a photograph that I could
not resist the temptation to add a little by
way of extempore moves to the process. For
a time I was fearful lest he should dislocate
his ne k trying to watch me, as I was be
hind h im. Finally he compromised with his
anatotiy by straddling the log. I knew
that tewns just dying with curiosity to
know hat I was doing, but wanted mc to
tell him without his asking.
I carefully measured oft! a triangle with
a leg cf the tripod and then set the camera
within the mystic liues. Then I stood at
each corner of the triangle, where I had
driven a little stake, and waved my arms
in the air. I paid no attention to the audi
ence. Then I focused the camera and made
theex;osure incidentally. Then I laid a
little train of magnesium powder from the
earner 1 to a hollow tree near by and fired
the tri.in. There was a line of smoke, but
of course 110 flame showed. Then I walked
to the hollow iu the tree and apparently
took f -oni the cavity a dark, flat bottle it
was ft 11.
Without a word I walked up to the old
man, ivho had not let a niove escape him,
unscrt wed the top and handed him the bot
tle. 1 le took it. looked at me, studied of
it wl.en he handed it back there was not
adror in it all in silence. Without say
ing ai ything I saw who the joke was on,
put tl e bottle in my pocket, gathered up
the camera and walked away. When I got
behind some bushes, I turned and looked
back. The old man was trying to pry that
dead t ree open with his fishing pole.
One man that I met was not at all im
press! d by the fact that fate had domiciled
him rear the rippling waters of the cele
brate) I stream. I opened conversation with
"A great river, this?" waving my hand
over the river.
"Known all over the world, wherever the
English language is spoken."
"And "The Suwanee River will be song
while the language exists.
"What's that yer drivin at?"
"Why about this river the Suwanee riv
er." "That ain't no river."
"Why, that's the Suwanee river."
"No, 'tain't; that's ther branch."
"That is no branch; that is the main riv
er." "I tell you, mister, that's the branch.
There ain't no S'wanee river 'bout here."
"D.d you ever hear of the Suwanee riv
"D.d you ever hear the song, 'The Old
Folk at Home?' '
"D j you like singing?"
"D jn't mind a leetle of it sometimes."
"All right. I'll sing 'The Old Folks at

other, so I did not attempt the second, but
"B ow do you like that?"
"Would you like some more?"-
""o, you needenter mind."
"ery well, but you want to remember
that this is the Suwanee river, one of the
most celebrated rivers in the world, and

crosi grained to the romance I was looking
for. That night when I returned to my
boar ling place they said a man had report
ed a crazy Yankee running at large along
the branch and cautioned them to look out

asked if I had seen him. I had not.
It is not to be wondered at that the poet
expressed the liveliest kind of a longing for
the old folks at home and took it out in
long lng if he was wise. Ue may have gam

in it nocent childhood, but wheu he began
to h'istle for the luxuries of life "along the
Suwanee river" was not the place for him
to h ing out.
We know, however, that affluence is not
necessary for the existence of happiness,
and though the farmers along the Suwanee
river do not count their cattle on a thou

Bliss Kate Field Answers In Plain Words
the Letter of a Fond Mother.
The Visitor of Sacramento has asked me
to reply to this wail from the wife of a
wage earner in a small town:
"My husband, in spit of habits of thrift
and economy, owing to more or less sick
ness and other misfortunes has been un
able to do more than to earn for us a bare
living. Should he pass away my daughter,
who is IS and is a graduate of the grammar
-school, and myself would be thrown upon
our own resources for support. Impelled
as we feel to aid her to do that which in
time of need will make ber self supporting,
we are in doubt as to the wisest course to
pursue. Though she possesses more than
average intelligence, yet our lack of means
has not permitted us to so educate her that
she can hope to earn a living in the higher
spheres of life.
"We have before us, then, the choice of
letting her become a domestic in a private
family or of permitting her to go to a
larger town or city, as some of our neigh
bora have permitted their daughters to do,
and to seek employment in some factory,
store or office. Being bright and ambitious
and spurred on by the examples of some of
the young women in the neighborhood who
hare been successful in the city and who
occasionally visit home, wearing city
clothes and exhibiting city manners, my
daughter seems anxious to follow 1n their
footsteps, feeling confident that she can be
equally successful. Though we know her
to be morally stong, yet we are loath to
let her pass beyond the parental root, fear
ing as we do the temptations which may
surround her in the larger place. On the
other hand, to retain her at home and to
make of her a domestic, which is the only
avenue of employment our limited sur
roundings afford, seems like keeping her
down and preventing her from making for
herself a more important place in the
world. May I ask thnt you put yourself in
my place, and tell me what you would do?"
What would I do? My dear madam, that
your daughter is 18 years of age, a gradu
ate of the grammar school, and though
bright and ambitious has been taught
nothing by which she can earn an honest
living is one more awful proof of what I
have known for years that our public
school system is a fraud.
Why was not your daughter brought up
to some trade? I am fully aware that Cali
fornia women are less willing than others
to use their hands, fcut as it has been de
creed from the beginning that man shall
earn bread by the sweat of his brow it is
useless to escape from the inevitable. Un
questionably, madam, your daughter has
natural likes and dislikes. If possessed of
"more than average intelligence," she
should know what her brain and fingers
are best fitted for. If she doesn't, you who
have watched her lovingly for 18 years
should be able to tell her. There is plenty
of work everywhere for good milliners,
dressninkcrs and seamstresses, I'd rather
lie an adept in any one of t hese occupations
than !e a teacher, unless at the very top of
the profession. They mean more money
and more independence.
I'd infinitely rather be a "domestic" in a
kind family in the town of my birth than
go elsewhere to seek employment in un
healthy factories, offices or stores. If,
madam, you have reared your daughter
sensibly, she will agree with me, and, fol
lowing the advice laid down by Goethe,
she will do the duty that lies next her. If,
however, like the majority of American
girls, your daughter has had little home
discipline and covets the "citv clothes and
city manners" of companions who, having
gone to big towns, occasionally return to
tell of their "success," it will be useless to
advise her to let well enongh alone. In
your daughter's place I'd do such work as
would enable me to remain under my par
ent' roof that I might be a joy and a com
fort to the best and most unselfish friends
a woman ever has. Kate Field's Washing
ton. Mare Island Boatbnllders.
The boats of the San Francisco do indeed
shed glory upon the foreman builder of the
Mare Island navy yard, aa in every race in
Hampton Roads they came in ahead. Ports
mouth boats have always been renowned
as strong and good sea boat, but they are
not especially fast, the Marion's third cut
ter being the only racing naval boat ever
obtaining much of a record for a Ports
mouth built boat in a generation. This
boat, like the first and second cutters, was
stiff and heavy, but after she was knocked
half to pieces in the surfs of Flores island,
near Montevideo, one day Carpenter Bar
ret patched her up, and by sawing some of
ber timbers through made a race boat out
of her which has beat everything it tackled
on the south Atlantic station.
Naval cntters are very unhandy and un
graceful boats at the best, and a naval
whaleboat, usually called in grim sarcasm
the lifeboat, is the unwieldliest and most
ungainly of all the boats an American man-of-war
carriea Naval boatbuilders might
well take a lesson in whaleboat building
from the splendid model furnished by New
Bedford and New London and turn out
boats which can be Bawed to windward by
five men iu a sea which would render the
ordinary naval whaleboat utterly unman
ageable, even if she could live in it. Ports

Inventor of Klckel-ln-the-slot.
The original inventor of the nickel-in-the
slot machine is a Philadelphian. Away
down on the border line of the Twenty-seventh
ward is an old fashioned roadhouse
known as the Union hotel. It has been a
roadhouse for 63 years. Long ago it was
kept by old Captain Serrill, who had an in
ventive son, now a jeweler on South Ninth
street. In the old roadhouse are many in
genious clockwork machines, constructed
by young Serrill years ago. Among them
is a large hen, so constructed that by drop
ping a nickel in the slot the hen lays an
egg. This, it is claimed, is the first nickel-in-the-slot
machine ever constructed, and
although it was never patented all the pres
ent inventions were hatched from this old
hen. Philadelphia Record.
Stoma on the Eastern Pyrenees.
At a meeting of the French Meteorolo
gical society Dr. Fines presented a note on
the violence of the storms which are occa
sionally experienced in the province of
Roussillon (eastern Pyrenees). On five oc
casions between 1860 and 1867 rail way trains
have been overturned on the line from Nar
bonne to Perpignan. A storm of great
violence occurred from Jan, 15 to 24, in
which at one time the velocity amounted
to 85 miles an hour. A large number of
trees were uprooted and some loaded rail
way trucks were overturned on this occa
sion. Philadelphia Ledger.

A Case of Conscience,
Three nights ago, as Watson Brownlow,
late worker in ana of the big newspaper
offices, was hurrying across City Hall park
he was accosted by a husky voiced outcast
whose clothes at least had seen better
days. "Say, boss, I'm no beggar," began
the tramp, "but I'm hungry and sleepy
and must have something to eat and abed.
Here's a ring no matter where I got it
take it and give me whatever yon can for
it." Whereupon before Brownlow could
utter a word the fellow thrust into his
a wide, plain, flat yellow ring.
Brownlow glanced at the ornament it was
undeniably heavy and bright. Then be
glanced at the tramp, who was undeniably
dirty and disreputable. f Cupidity and con
cience began Immediate warfare under
Brownlow "s hat. The contest lasted for a
few seconds only, and conscience retired in
disorder. "The ring ia safer In my posses
sion than in his," said Brownlow to hi m
self, "and if it is stolen property I may be
able to restore it to the owner, but this fel
low never would." He hurriedly forced a
silver dollar into the tramp's hand, thrust
the ring into his own pocket and walked
"Iam half ashamed of the whole trans
action," said Brownlow aa he related the
experience an hour later to a party of
friends in an uptown cafe, "for the more I
think of it the more I feel as if I had made
myself a receiver of stolen goods."
"Don't worry yourself, dear boy," re
plied one of the group to whom the mys
sterious ring had been handed for examina
tion, "this trinket is not so valuable that
the loss of it would break the heart of its
owner. Any supply house for street fakirs
will sell you rings just like this at 60 cents
a dozen. The man of whom you bought it
employed rather reprehensible methods as
a salesman, that's all." New York Herald.
About 8 o'clock in the evening the family
and their friends and Jewish servants,

a table on which t he various symbols of the
