It I n Qnalnt Old Florida Seaport, With

Fornnndlna, which hns been selected for

Tho principal points of ndvantngo which

nd other Florida ports, from n military
vlow, nro tho puro nnd abundant wnter,
tho deep water of tho harbor, furnishing
Rood facilities for loading troops; tho cnno
of access of tho camp slto for loading and

bathing for tho jucn, tho cool breezes from
tho ocean and tho excellent drainage facil

tho best points for a lnrgo camp In tho
south.
Tho land is furnished frco, and tho wa
ter Is served to tho camps at no cost to tho
government or men. Both thoso consid
erations, so utterly different from tho con
ditions prevailing at Tampa, somowhnt
astonished tho ofllccrs sont to Inspect tho
sites offered.
Tho olty Is located on n flno landlocked
bay, tho St. Mary's river, a largo fresh
water stream emptying Into Its upper end.
Tho bny is possibly lour or llvo miles long
by n mllo or two miles wldo. It has deep
water along tho water front nnd In tho
ports adjacent, so that amplo room could
bo had for n licet or u or moro largo trans
ports at n tlmo. On tho bar ot prcsont
thcro Is 21 fcot at high tldo. Tho opera

according to Colonel Bcnynurd, United
States oillccr in chargo of tho coastwlso
work, is likely to glvo 23 foot soon. This
will glvo amplo room on tho bar for the
largest transports to go out fully ladon.
Tho dookngo facilities nro oxcollcnt.
For years past tho phosphnto and lumber
tnterosts havo been Increasing, and tho
plors havo been arranged nnd rebuilt with
a vlow to tho quick loading of n number
of vcssol3 nt onco. Sovoral transports can
llo nlongsldo tho whnrfs at a tlmo and tho
supplies and troops bo put on board with
out loss ot tlmo and with enso.
Tho town lies on rolling land and Is
about two miles from tho scacoast. Tho
land between tbo town nnd coast Is high
rolling plno land, wooded with giant
dwnrf and wntor oaks. Tho soil Is hard,
thero being a notlccablo nbsonco of tbo
shifting sand found at tho other camps.
Northeast of tho city nnd beginning near
old Fort Clinch thero is n tract of 120
acros that baH boon selected as tho camp
site. It Is a bonutlful location. Tbo land
is high, somo dlstnnco abovo tho sea lovol,
and it can bo easily drained. Tho trees
glvo nbundnnt shade, while not too thick
to prevent tbo frco passage of tho winds to

18 miles long nnd Is ono of tho finest on
tho south Atlantic coast. Tho bathing is
superb.
Tho water supply Is abundant, and from
analysis it has boon found to bo wholesome
and good. It is scoured from sovcral ar
tesian wells, tho same as at Jacksonville,
good wntor being found nt n depth of 800
to 1,200 feet. Tho wntor Is bolng plpod to
tho camp slto now. Eight Inch mains aro
used to carry tho water to tho camp slto
and 0 Inch pipes to carry It through tho
company streets, giving caoh company as
many plugs or hydrants as may bo needed.
This will provo of great ndvantngo to tho
troops, giving them an amplo supply of
water at their tont doors. Tho tents will
bo from a quarter to half a mllo from tho
shoro of tho bay.
Thcro nro amplo facilities for scouring

othors that eon bo scoured, so that tho fa
cilities in this lino aro all that could bo
desired.
Tho health of tho placo is beyond all
question. Tho reports of the olty hoalth
officers provo that tho health of Fernan
dlna summer or winter is phonomenal. It
has a low death rato, and tho utter absonco
of malaria makes it a great summer resort
for peoplo from tho Interior. In this re
spect it has no equal In tho state, oxcopt
perhaps Jacksonville.
Fernandlna is an old town with many
mnrks of antiquity about hor. Tho ono
main street runs cast and west leading

From this radlato many smaller thorough

and handsomo mansions. It has a history
nnd in wartimes was an Important point.
It has n lnrgo Ehlpplng trndo now, and it
Is a Uvoly pluco In that lino. It Is a quiet,

tElSTHE KING OF THE PENINSULAR
STATE.

Spain.
When tho government began to send its
troops by tho thousands down into Flori
da, so as to havo them handy whon tho
tlmo enmo for shipping them to Cuba, the
officials found many evidences of tho oxlst
rncoof a man of whoso financial greatness
tnnny of them had novcr heard beforo.
That man was Henry 11. 1'lnnt.
Not only government agents, but nrmy
officers nnd privates began to learn of Mr.
Plant. When troops wcro to bo moved to
Koy West and Tampa, It was found thut
all the railroads wcro owned by Plant.
When supplies wero to bo sent by water,
It was found that Plant ownod tha steam
ship linos. Whon tho officers arrived at
tho big enmps and conoludod that it was
foolish to sleep In tents whon flno big ho
tels wcro so handy, thoy discovered that
Plnnt owned tha hotels also. They then
ucenmo awnru that much or tlio land, in
cluding plno woods and benches mnny of
tho stores and a lot of other things wcro
all part of Plant's property.
Weeks ago it dawned upon n lot of
Americans thnt Florida instead of being
nn ordinary commonwealth was vlrtunlly
n llttlo kingdom and that Henry 1). Plant
was Its kinc. Mr. Plant inny almost bo
said to havo an honest right to tho tltlo.
By his monoy, cntcrprlso nnd energy ho hns
mndo Floridn what it is today. When ho
first visited tho stnto in 1888, Jacksonville)
was tho only nccesslblo point. Ho wanted
to go to St. Augustine. Tho trip had to
bo mado In a duguut ennoe, and In en
deavoring to thread tho wilderness of wa
terways tho guldo himself lost his bear
ings, and tho future ruler 01 the stato
snent n night In tho open.
Slnco then Mr. Plunt has dono much for
Florida and lnoldcntally for himself. Ho
hns built railroads, established steamboat
lines and built up thriving winter resorts
around his big hotols. IIo hns Introduced
to tho citizens of the northern states tho
beauties of tho winter climate- of Florida,
and they havo paid him back by settling
big hotel bills nnd paying thumping big
transportation fares. Now Unclo Sam Is
handing over to Mr. Plant a big sllca ot
tho war appropriations, nnd the railroads,
steamers and hotels which wcro meant to
furnish dividends only In winter aro regu
lar summer gold mines.
Although well on in his sovonty-nlnth
year, Mr. Plant is still one of tho busiest
mon in this country untiring, seldom
finding or needing tlmo for rest, full of tho
business of today and tho requirements of
tomorrow, but planning and preparing al-

ways for tho conditions of ten years or a
quartor of a century hence. Few things
happen In his territory thnt ho has not
foreseen and prepared for, nnd with It nil
and with tho added cares of a multimil
lionaire of Now York ho is ono of tho
kindliest nnd most approachable of men.
Mr. Plnnt Is a grandson of Sarah Frls
bco, ft descendant of tho nuguonot Itlch
ard Frlsbco who settled In Virginia in
1010 and whoso son Edward was driven
out of thnt stato in 1018 on account ot his
Puritanism. Edward Frlsbco removed to
Bronford, Conn., nnd for many genera
tions tho Frisbccs wcro Branford, and
Branford was tho Frlsboos. In tho same
town filr. Plant was born In 1810, und
after finishing his education ho entered nt
onco Into tho business for which nnturo
had expressly molded him and to which ho
nns devoted his entire lire. At m years
old ho had ohargu of tho express business
between Now York and New Haven, and
whon that business ripened into tho
Adams Express company, In 1851, he was
appointed superintendent of tho southorn
division of the company. At the opening
of tho civil war, In 1801, ho formed nud
becamo president of the Southorn Express
company and has been its prosldont con
tinuously slnco that tlmo. For tho last 81
years ho has also been prosldont of tho
Texas Express company.
Thoso presidencies, howovor, nro moro
items in tho long list of Mr. Plant's busi
ness interests. In 1832 ho organized nnd
was mado prosldont of tho Plnnt Invest
ment company, in which among his asso
ciates woro nonry M. Flaglor, Morris K.
Jcsup, Henry Snnford, II. P. Hoadloy and
O. n. Tllloy. It is over ono of this com
pany's railway lines, reaching from
Charleston to Tampa, that tho troops for
tho enpturo of Cuba and Porto Rico aro

eral tltlo of tho "Plant system," roads llko
a traveler's guldo.
Though on tho veigo of his eightieth
year, Mr. Plant spends n largo part of his
tlmo iu his private car, No. 100, thut
is known and welcomed all over tho south
ern states. Today ho is In Tampa, to
morrow in Jamaica, a llttlo later in New
York, In Boston, in Halifax. Ills office
goos with him ovorywhero by day .or
night. In tho midst of tho plno woods
No. 100 draws up In front ot a shanty

well as tho namo and businoss of ovory

STEPHENS' REVENGE.

Gcorgo II. Stephens, formerly profess

fesses that ho Is guilty of arson. Ste
phens Isn young man of fliio nppenrnnco
and n Brnluat0 of Princeton. IIo went
to Lafnyotto well recommended, but his
work was not satisfactory nnd ho was
told by President Wnrllold that ho must
rctiro after tho agreement which ho had
signed on coming had expired. This led
to n conflict between tho president nnd
Stopheus. Tho lntter'a friends advised
him to go quietly, but ho refused, start
ed n nowspnper controversy, nnd mado
a sensation. Tho trustees gnvo him nn
hour's hcnrlng by tho full board, nud
then, without asking Dr. Wnrllold n
single question, sustained his conrso.
Processor Stephens loft only to brood
ovor his troubles nud finally to begin ft
scries of depredations which ho hoped
would break down tho collego and do-
ononon 11. STF.rnnss.
President Wnrflcld, who was at
stroy
first Professor Stopheus' best friend. Ho
cut tho Ivy that covered various collego
buildings, then damaged tho chapel or

duced a manufacturer to present to tho
collego. Ho stolo all tho hymubooks
tho day beforo tho day of prayer for
colleges and throw them iu n cistern.
In May lust ho put tar on tho beuches,
on tho carpet, 011 tho organ, pulpit and
Uiblo, causing n great loss.
Subsequently Stephens entered tho
chapel to smear it with bad eggs. IIo
put tho basket down and weut to tho
organ, intending to destroy it, but thero
was n watchman hack of tho organ. IIo
attacked Stopheus and wounded him
with n olub, but Stephens cscapod. His
purpose was to provcut tho uso of tho
chapel tho noxt day, baccalaureato Sun
day. IIo hud entered by usiug n koy.
This koy wp.h recognized ns tho ouo
which hnd bceu given to him while ho
was connected with tho collego. Ho
had not returned it. This led to his ar
rest. It was bclioved that Stephens had sot
flro to Pnrdco hall, which was destroy
ed last year, and ho was asked nbout
that. IIo uttered a groan nud then ad-mitte-l
his guilt. IIo said thnt to got
even with Professor Davidson, whom ho
disliked, ho went to his classroom in
Pardeo hall, piled mattings, chnirs and
othor articles iu a heap, sot thorn aflro
and then wcut out to gloat ovor tho

LIFE IN A WARDROOM
THE OFFICcHS' QUARTERS ON BOARD
A MAN-OF-WAn.
Where All Uicept the Commander Knt,
Lire nnd Ilnve Their Social lleln Nnrnt
Etiquette Isolated tho Sinn Whom All
Others on Hoard Mint Obey.
Tho wardroom on n man-of-war is tho
living placo of nil tho older ofllcors of
tho rhip, with ono cxcoptlon, tho com
manding ofllccr. Ho lives by hlmsolf,
has his own cabins, his own mess, his
own servants. Navul etlquotto aud cus
tom havo established this habit of isola
tion for tho man on tho ship who has
command of all tho rest. Tho reason is
undoubtedly to bo found in tho very
fact that ho ropresouts extraordinary
power. Under theso circumstnuccs any
nttempt to forget tho superiority of his
rank by mcauB of n common cabin or
messroom for him nud his subordinates
would only result iu ombar.-ssmout on
both sides. S
This does not mean that io may not
bo sociable, for much depends upon tho
man. But it is safo to say that nuy show
of effusiveness among thoso who live
abaft tho mast must como from his sido,
if ho wishes it to bo general. Tho situa
tion is n dolicato ouo.
In tho freer nlr of tho wardroom wo
find from 10 to 20oft"lcers living togeth
er, tho number varying with tho sizo of
tho ship. Their ages mayraugo from 2C
to CO, aud they aro of all ranks above
that of naval cadet, aud of nil corps.
Engineer ofllccrs, lino officers, medical
ofllccrs, rnariuo ofllcen, ono pay officer
and ono chaplain, may nil bo included
in tho wardroom of n largo ship. These
men llvo in staterooms arranged about a
common space, which is known as tho
"wardroom country." This assumption
of a spoco of prairiollko dimensions is
comparatively truthful iu tho cramped
quarters of a ship. In this "country"
exists tho social lifo of tho wardroom.
Hero thoso men of varied callings, yot
all of tho sea's following, llvo, move
and havo their social being.
A day spent in n wnrdroom by n land
lubber would reveal many Interesting
differences botwoeu naval officers nud
their brethren on shoro. To bcglu with,
thoy aro moro cosmopolitan iu thoir
speech. Tho men in our wnrdroomB aro
gathered together from all parts of tho
Union. Local discussions find but mi
uninterested uudieuco, or oven a dorisivo
ouo, so that n naval ottlcur gots accus
tomed to speak mil think of nil tho 45
states as belonging equally to him. Out
side of his own country ho is so great n
traveler that very fow civilians can keep
up with tho way ho skips in conversa
tion from China to Peru or to Tasma
nia. Other characteristics that aro
quickly uoticcablo aro his simplicity,
his cheerfulness and his heartiness. Tho
wardroom is constantly resounding with
laughtor. The men iu it nro healthier
thau men who livo in houses. Thoy get
up earlier lu tlio morning nud go to bed
earlier at night. Most of our wardrooms
aro bustling with ofllccrs ut 7 o'clock in
tho morning.
A glnnco nt tho broakfnst tablo shows
tho senior lino officer presiding, and tho
othor ofllccrs placed uear him according
to rank. At tho other end of tho tablo
is tho mau who hus boon elected by his
messmates to direct tho catering of tho
mess. Between this early meal and tho
breakfast proper, which comes at half
past 11 or 13 o'clock, thcro is uot much
lifo iu tho wardroom, for tho daily mil
itary rontino is full of drills nnd exer
cises which keop most of tho ofllccrs on
deck. Thero aro drills with great guns
aud witli small arms, drills iu clearing
ship for action, drills in handling am
munition and mauy others all of them
rooted iu tho ouo idea that you must
preserve your own lifo by destroying
that of your enemy.
As soon as nu officer returus to tho
wardroom from ouo drill aud begins a
conversation or perhaps hums a song ho
is interrupted by tho bugles on dook nud
must bucklo on his sword aud return to
auothcr drill.
At ovory call to quarters all officers
must roport themselves ready for duty.
The chaplaiu and paymaster, having
much lesf to do with drills thau tho
other ofllccrs, aro usually tho first to bo
back in tho wardroom, where thcro is
other work for thorn. Tho medicnl ofll
cor has gono forward to tho sick bay to
look aftor his patients.
When tho uiidday breakfast comes,
there is tho first breathing space for a
little loisuro and relaxation. But tho
drills for tho dny aro not yot ovor, nnd
at 1 o'clock tho bustlo is resumed
throughout tho ship. A sudden call may
como for collision drill, or flro drill, or
battalion drill. If at soa, a floating tar
got may bo dropped overboard, aud for
an hour tho ship bo shaken from stem
to stern by tho dischargo of guns. From
3 to 5 o'olock in tho aftoruoou thoro is
generally a respite from work, mid tho
wardroom bogins to show signs of bo
ing n homo. Somo in it aro reading or
writing, othors nro smoking or playing
games or loafing. Still others aro iu
thoir rooms taking tho seaman's after
noon nap. But at G o'clock tho drills
aud exercises como again.
By 0 :30 o'clock thero is a fooliug that
ouo cau sit down and dino without fear
of interruption. Tlio mes,s us n wholo is
now gathered togothor, and tho meal is
gonorally a thoroughly enjoyable and
dolightful affair. After it is ovor there
aro cigars, gainos, musio, or tho right to
withdraw within ouosolf without ox
citiug romark. By 10 o'clock most of
theso sailors nro in bed, but oven now
tho drills may not hoover. At midnight
tho bugles nuiy souud, nnd in two min
utes nil tho bhip's company bo rapidly
making roady for an ciiemy. Now

Innhlo of a Molecule.
Tho New South Wales government
analyst, William M. Hamlot, delivered
tho presidential address in tho section
of chemistry nt tho recent mcctlug of
tho Australian Association For tho Ad
vancement of Science, tho subject boing
"Tho Moloculnr Mechanism of au Elec
trolyte." IIo defined nn olectrolyto as a body in
solution or stnto of fusion, capablo of
boiug instnuteously decomposed by a
current of electricity, and lie claimed
that if tho esplauatiou ho offered was
adequato for tho clectrolyto it must
hold good for tho constitution of the
matter iu tho univen-o, so that tho
trcatiso on tho olectrolyto has a most
important scientific bearing. Tho meth
od of investigating tho action of one
body upon any othor, ho reminded his
audience, was brought to n high degroa
of uccuracy by tho immortal work of
Sir Isaac Nowton. IIo alluded to soma
observations of tho lato Professor Clif
ford, mado over 20 years ngo, this au
thority remarking, nlmost prophetical
ly, "Wo cau look forward to tho time
when tho structure aud motions in tho
intudo of a molecule will bo so woll
known that some f uturo Kant or Laplaco
will bo ablo to mako an hypothesis
