To look at this insignificant mass of

that only 65 inches in height, it weighs
fully 10,000 pounds. It is potent that so

their unused wealth in the custody of

To the Editor of the Banner :
Your informant, as to some things
stated in a “ personal ’’ last week, was
misinformed. I never had a charge in
Nashville, Tenn., and, therefore, never
built up a church in that city.
While greatly appreciating the gener
osity of friends in the tribute paid, I
must protest against seeming quietly to
accept, much less to claim, that tribute
as due me.

Nothing adds so much to the beauty
of a fair girl, as a clear, bright, healthy
complexion, and to secure this pure
blood is indispensable. So many of the
so-called blood purifiers sold to improve
a rough, pimply, muddy skin, only drive
the scrofulous humors from the surface
to some internal vital orgati.and disease
and death is the inevitable result. On
the contrary, Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medi

of the evil, by driving* the imparities
entirely out of the system, and with a
fresh stream of pure blood Hawing
througli tiie veins, nothing but the

Their Honors Won in St. Augustine,
Their Feasting Done at Home.
Everybody knows with what a gener
ous baud the Hon. Jno: F. Dunn dis
penses his bounty, and the fact, too, that
wheti the Ocala Rifles and Protective
Hose Company No. 2 won their prizes
at St. Augustine last month, bow he sent
them a congratulatory telegram and told
the boys to celebrate their victories at
his expense.
On second thought the “soldier boys”
thought it would he the proper thing to
restrain their enthusiasm and admira
tion for their most magnificent friend,
Mr. Dunn, aud have him present at
their “ rejoicing festival” in Ocala.
It was ordered thus, and on last
Friday night the Ocala Rifles assembled
at the lovely residence of Captain R. B.
McConnell, and the only thing to mar
the victorious toasts that were drank
that night with hearts overflowing with
rejoicings and good will towards their
benefactor, was the absence of their
staunch friend, the Hou. Jno. F. Dunn,
prevented by illness in ins family, from
being in attendance.
Captain McConnell presided, and
under the inspiring influences of Mes
dame Mumm’s Extra Dry, but which
sparkled and effervesced with the scin
tillations of the electric touch, the boys
held the social fort, and if it had not
been Friday night woulij. not have gone
home till morning.

Discovered by the People.
Many o f the inventors and vendors of
the viirious nostrums that are offered to
the pnblic to-day, only to disappear and
lie succeeded by something else to-morrow,
make the most sweeping and absurd claims
for them. They are heralded as cure-alls,
and it is no wonder that the public has be
come suspicious. The most remarkable
fact in the history of S. 8. S. (for, unlike
most other proprietary medicines, it has a
history) is this: Thao a great many of its
virtues have been discovered by the people
themselves. It has never been advertised
as a specific for skin cancer, and yet there
are many testimonials going to show that
S. S. S. will cure that dreaded disease.
These testimonials are of such a character
that there is no “going behind the re
The Cultivation of Rice.
Captain Chambers, of Orange I.ake, is
taking a deep interest in the cultivation
of this staple product, and with this ob
ject in view, is trying to secure the co
operation of the rice mill builder and
the farmers to grow it. He has been in
correspondence with W. P. Russell, a
brother of our popular state superin
tendent of public instruction, at Charles
town, S. C., and largely interested in
rice growing and milling, whom be has
induced to meet our farmers, at their
forthcoming quarterly meeting, at Ft.

them many things of interest and profit.

hand, to see if they cannot take hold of
a product that will take tliej place of
cotton. We trust there will be a big
rally at Ft, McCoy.

Anthony, Fla , Aug. 3.1591.
To the Editor of the Banner.
Everybody in and about Anthony is
stricken with the educational craze. The
pass word is “culture” ar.d with an en
rollment of over forty-seven, the cry is*
“still they come.”
Could the parents of Marion county
see the sweet, earnest faces of the fair,
young women and strong young men, as
they studiously bend over a task, or ani
matedly recite in class, they would re
joice in the thought that ail this will be
used for the benefit of their children

Well I know that “he who blowetli
his own horn bloweth a 6hrill blast,”
but when such scholars as Profs. F. N.
Felkel and J. J. Stuart endorse and
praise our methods, when men of their
experience say that it is the very bee
normal they have ever attended (except
those conducted by themselves) we may
be excused for a little extra pluming.
The school is especially good in that
the methods used and the material are
such as young teachers will find useful
in actual experience.
We have a class of ungraded primary
pupils, kindly furnished by Ine parents
of Anthony, upon whom the methods
are actually tried, where we are con
fronted with the same problems which
stare t)ie inexperienced teacher in the
face in her school room ; we wrestle
with the identical bug-boars, and teach
the object method w ithout those appa
rently indispensable charts, maps, etc.,
which every well supplied school pos
sesses and almost every county school
The school is a great improvement
on the one of last year and the social
feature is as conscientiously studied a s
any other.
Teachers who have finished a course
at other normals arc coming in every
day to take our course also.
The good people of Anthony have
demonstrated that Southern hospitality
is not the thing of ante helium days and
last Saturday eve each house in which
teachers lodged was urenaded by the
very excellent brass band.
Our teachers are developing unsus
pected talent in elocution.
Mrs. Smillie has under her care the
departments of physical culture, calis
thenics and elocution,and I must say
that she seems able to positively make
lasent, for she is constantly briuging
forth debutants. The teachers have
seized upon physical culture and the
improvement in bearing, carriage and
movement, is wonderful.
I will write you a report of our next

of Scrofulous origin, and for which local
treatment is useless. Before health Is pos

The newspaper; that's not “on top”

When “fly time” comes and causes a “let

is not so conspicuous.- We know some
papers that have shrunk all to nothing
by the hot, dull summer. But the Ban
