City of Jacksonville.
Jacksonville, the capital of Florida, and the
largest city iv that state, covers an area of
•even and six-tenths square miles. Its popu
lation on the Ist of January, 1901, was placed
at 33,000, and the value of the property within
the city limits was $13,477,510. The city is
located on the west bank of the St. John's
river, twenty-five miles from the ocean. It
was named in honor of President Andrew
Jackson. It has long been one of the most
noted of the southern winter resorts. Its
waterworks system is said to be one of the
finest in the United States. The city is built
in an irregular fashion. It is laid out in
wide aveuues, shaded with great live oaks.
Flowers and shrubbery adoru the grounds
around the hotels and residences. Boating on
the bay and drives over the shell boulevards
are among its greatest attractions. Its streets
ere honeycombed with weather-board build
ings wbich would burn like tinder. All the
streets within the city limits are well paved,
Bhelis, pine blocks and brick being the mate
rial used. During the Spanish-American war
Jacksonville was the headquarters of the
Seventh army corps, U. S. V., which was
under the direct command of General Fltz

located within the city limits. The section of
the city burned over included some of the

afternoon by being permitted to select
eixty-four delegates to attend the state

More than usual importance was at

The Minister's Wife Wat Right.
When a baby's life can be saved by
food it is worth while knowing something
of iliat food.
A minister's wife, name given below*
v.rites: "I do not exaggerate in the least
when I say that I have never yet seen a
picture of the starving babies of India
that looked as bad as our baby did. The
skin was drawn as tightly as possible
. over her little frame, and was almost
black. Her little form was so shrunken
that it was pitiable to look at. Her bright
eyes only showed that she was alive.
She was starving to death, for every
"thing she ate was immediately thrown off
from her stomach. We tried every kind
of food we could think of, and only kept
her alive by rubbing olive oil and cod liver
oil into the pores of the skin.
The doctor was doing all he could, but
finally we sent for an uncle, an old physi
cian, to come and see her. The doctors
agreed perfectly, but uncle advised us to
use Grape-Nuts Food.
'We immediately got some and placed a
spoonful in some boiling water. This
was allowed to simmer until the food be
came perfectly soft. A little rich milk was
added, and just enough sugar to sweeten.
It made a delicious food, and it was aston
ishing how perfectly it agreed with our
baby and how she did 'lic"k it down.'
She would not drink milk unless It had
Grape-Nuts Food in it thereafter.
After a few days she began to show
marks of improvement, then she improved
very rapidly. When we began feeding
her Grape-Nuts she weighed about ten
.pounds, now she weighs over thirty and is
almost as broad as she is long.
- Our friends all think it is a miracle that
she recovered. While I am writing this
letter, one of my older girls has just come
up, begging for some Grape-Nuts and

Anarchist in Pittsburg Prefers to
Shoot Himself.
Emma Goldmann Say« He Was De-
spondent Because Anarchy
Had Mm Chance.
ftmw York Sun Spmclml Sorvlo*
Pittsburg, May 4.—The police are in
vestigating the death of Giovanni Pieta,
an Italian anarchist. It was reported to
the police that tlje anarchist committed
tsuicide because he had been chosen by lot
to kill the king of Italy, and he revolted
against committing the crime but de
spaired of escaping, the revenge of the an
archist societies.
Pieta. 26 years old, came from Carrar
ra, Italy, five years ago, soon after his
marriage. He first settled in Barre, Vt.,
and afterward worked at the trade of ar
tistic marble cutter in various American
cities. He came to Pittsburg a year ago.
When the Allegheny county coroner
started to investigate the case, he was told
by boarders in the house that Pietta fired
two shots. Inspection of the body showed
only one bullet In the body. When he
killed himself, it is understood, two others
were sleeping in the same room.
Superintendent Roger O'Mara professes
to disbelieve the story of conspiracy to
assassinate the king of Italy and another
report that Pieta was removed because
he refused to perform the deed.
Emma Goldmann, the anarchist agita
tor, has been in Pittsburg several days.
In an interview on the suicide, she said
Pieta had not shot himself because he
had received word three months ago that
bis wife was dead, but because he was
despondent, believing anarchy could not
defeat the forces of law and order. Pieta
had told her life was not worth living un
der present conditions. She saw him last
night and he was very melancholy.
Temporary Bars Set Up in the State

Mmw York Sun Special Smrvlcm
Springfield, 111., May 4. — There were
riotous scenes in the capitol last night as
the result of a banquet and spread pre

for the members of the legislature in ap
preciation of the passage of the armory
The committee purchased sandwiches
and bar refreshments and in two rooms on
the third floor of the capitol, one adjoin
ing the house, the other adjoining the sen
ate, set up improvised bars. Senators and
representatives left their seats time after
time to visit the refreshment stands until
it was painfully evident that more than
one was intoxicated. Singing and roar
ing noises interrupted the business of the
house, and Acting Speaker Trautman was
forced to call upon Secretary of State J. A.
Rose to have the debauchery stopped.
Secretary Rose swooped down upon both
rooms in person and peremptorily drove
every one out, irrespective of their po
litical importance and status. After lock
ing one of the improvised bars, the sec
retary went to the other, returning a few
minutes latet" to find that the place had
been reopened. The people on the inside
were again driven out and two guards
were placed over each room.
The banquet was arranged by some of
Springfield's best citizens.
At one time during the merriment, it
became necessary for a police officer to tap
a senator over the head to quiet him.

Washington, May 4.—The Washington
Post tells a story of how Congressmen
Tawney of Minnesota might have got in
on the stock markets during the recent
bulge in nrices, but didn't. It says:
Representative Tawney of Minnesota yester
day encountered one of the tho-ongs of local
speculators as he walked along F street. "I
am only speculating in my mind," said he. "I
was in St. Louis a few days ago and a friend
of mine, who is well Informed on stocks,
wanted to put me in for 1.000 shares of Union
Pacific. It was selling then for about par,
and my friends was so anxious for me to
make money that he assured me he would
furnish the cash and the deal should not cost
me a cent.
"I refused to be enticed into , the market.'
'I have a wife and four children to support,
and I can't "afford to", risk, losing more money
than I have in the world on a stock deal,'
said I to him. 'I have never speculated and
I am not going: to begin now." "
But Mr. Tawney couldn't ■ help "speculat
ing in his mind'" over what he; would be
worth if he had gone into .the market with
1,000 shares, for Union Pacific was selling
yesterday at 128, and. he would »have .been
able to-quit $28,000 ahead of the game. ■

The count is now chief president of Hesse-

ever, was dropped because of the Intense

whereupon the count resigned. He is
still a great favorite with the emperor,

His being summoned here is generally

Chorus Won't Sing Swear Words
New York Sun Snmclat Service
Louisville, Ky., May 4.—The May music festival chorus, 250 strong, went on a
strike because they were compelled to sing about "hell."
Director McConathy is a stickler for following the score, and until he allowed
them to substitute "well" for "hell" it looked like no festival would be given. One
of the choruses is from "Phaudrig Crohoor," by S. Williers Stanford, and in it appear
the words "the same was like hell."
The chorus is made up largely of members of the church choirs and Sunday school
pupils in Louisville and the Indiana towns just opposite Louisville. In the chorus
also are a number of ministers, among them the Rev. E. C. Dargan, professor at the
Bouthern Baptist theological seminary. In looking over the Irish chorus Dr. Dargan
discovered the objectionable selection and it was determined not to sing it.
When the part with the objectionable line was reached only a few of the un
re-generate sang it, but they sang it with a will. Director McConathy looked surprised,
then stamped his foot and waved his baton for the whole chorus to go on. The chorus
•would not go on, and instead held an indignation meeting right there and appointed
Dr. Dargan a committee of one to lodge a formal protest. The director told the
chorus to substitute "the same was right well" for "the same was like hell."
