PALATKA, FLA., MARCH 13, 1884. IS IT SO ? The London Graphic reports that M. Waddington, presiding at the annual dinner in aid of the French hospital in London, said, referring to the Anglo-French alliance, that any difference between the two countries might almost he called lover's quarrels. Did the wooing of bluff King Hal to Katharine, in the prophetic eye of genius, typify the present relations of the two countries? "Fair Katharine and most fair, Will you vouchsafe to teach a soldier tears. Such as will enter at a lady's ear, And plead his love-suit at her gentle heart." From the wild struggles and more ferocious loves, marked by all the bitterness of abiding hate, is evolved these soft words, showing the trust built up between the two countries bv the necessities of modern times: from the blunt wooing of the sol dier King, and the shy, sweet resis tance of the gentle maiden, comes the business-like friendship of two gray haired ministers ! Between the hardy virtues of England and the graceful, generous pride of her spirited rival, our sym pathies have been often balanced and confused in the glowing pages of Froissart, only to be disturbed anew by the sober pages of later history. What Harry's love and Kate's beauty could not do, has been ac complished by the hard necessity of mutual protection from the martial soldier-machines of Germany, the trained millions of the Czar, and the leveling powers of dynamite. It is an incident oi good omen to the world when its two foremost na tions can truthfully so swear such a union, but how far less picturesque than the old nuptuals? Once the haughty maiden could not be won but by sacrifice hardly paid to the bloody god of war; the warrior leaped to the arms of his lady-love with torn plumes and bat tered shield stoutly kept at deadly peril. How different was England's language when she spoke by the mouth of the Fifth Henry V "You have witchcraft in your lips, Kate; there is more eloquence in a sugar touch of them than in all the tongues of the French council, and they should sooner persuade Harry of England than a general petition of monarch." However this may lie, we are glad to see the princely pair bound by holy ties, even though Gladstone and M. "Waddington offi ciate at the wedding, with arguments and figures as attendants instead of the robed and jeweled beauties, the gallant pages and hardy knights who witnessed the betrothal of Harry and his lovely Kate. Uncle Sam has no necessity for such union; the proud old bachelor attends their merry-makings, but cares not one whiff of his pipe for the wrangles and fears of the now belittled nations of the old world. Old England may wed Aunt France with her false front and af fectation of youthful vivacity. Uncle Sam congratulates the couple, but soon returns to his work of civ ilizing a continent and conquoring the rivers and myuntains of his spa cious domain. LOCAIj option and the demo. CKATIC PARTY. We hope that no considerable number of the democrats of this state wish to make the local option law an issue in the next campaign. It has never been the policy of the democratic party of Florida to fur nish or deprive the people of liquor. The existing local option law did not originate, nor was it adopted nor has it been enforced as a party measure. Upon the propriety of its passage, the wisdom of its provis ions and the efficiency of its opera tions, republicans differ from, repub licans, and democrats from demo crats. And this difference must continue, for the taste for good whisky can't be destroyed bv cold water paper platforms, nor can the love of water be lessened by party pronunciamentos. It must be evident, therefore, that j should the party declare against lo cal option a very large number of voters will immediately withdraw from the ranks. On the other hand, should the advocacy of local option be made a test of party allegiance, an equally large body of men who are opposed to such a plank will at 1 "I 1 once secede anci organize m deter mined opposition? This democrat drinks; that dem ocrat don't. This democrat believes in freedom of taste and its enjoy ment; that democrat believes in the suppression of what he considers harmful to himself and society. But both believe, heart and soul, in the principles of the democratic party. Both wish a reform of national and state abuses. Both are willing to cast their ballots for a democratic governor of Florida, and a demo cratic president of the United States. Let us then relegate this question to be disposed of by community sentiment and its consequent action. Thus differing democrats will be al lowed the expression of individual conviction unfettered by party affil iation. Put down the water pitcher and the whisky jug, bos. Yonder comes tho enemy. He who divides tha the ranks now, if he knows what he is doing, is a criminal; if he doesn't, he's a fool. TAXATION'. In such a county as ours, the man who makes a satisfactory as sessment must possess a combina tion of qualities rarely found in one person. He must value orange groves and waste lands, hotel prop erty, city lots, furniture, railroads, merchandise, farms ami agricultural implements, with all the diverse needs of a costly civilization. One man cannot do this; he must, have the judgment of Minos and the eyes of Argus, Let three per sons in each precinct constitute a board Avhich shall be furnished a map of the township and meet for three days to make public assessment in the presence of their immediate neighbors, subject to the equalizing revision of the county commission ers. PROM I N EXT PEO PLE. Brown. It is hinted that Senator Brown, of Georgia, desires a portifolio in in the cahinet of the next deiuecratic president. Logan. CJeneral John A. Logan's wife is still beautiful, graceful and witty. She originates, plans and execute wisely for the advancement of her husband, who yields implicit obedience to her slightest wislu Gorpox. The difficulties oi railroad building without money have aged John B. Gordon very rapidly; and one misses from his bearing much of that command ing air which distinguished him a few years ago. Burke. It is said that Major E. A. Burke, of the New Orleans Times-Democrat, and General J. B. Eustis will present themselves as candidates to succeed United States Senator Jonas, whose term expires in 188o. Arnold. At a recent dinner party Matthew Arnold declined a proffered cigar, witli the remark that neither he nor his father ever smoked. "But," ho added, "I have a son who smokes for his grandfather and his father," Cassagnac Paul de Cassagnac, Bon apartist, writes in Le Matin, urging that the Bonapartists and Royalists should unite with a view of effecting the down fall of the republic. Napoleonism and Orleanism, he says, are only different lalels for the same sort of cordial. McDaniel. Henry D. McDaniel, the present governor of Georgia, is a con firmed ami painful stutterer. He was a captain in the Confederate army, and his men complained that while he could al ways give the command to "march" with ease, yet "f-f-f-fall b-b-b-b-b-back" killed nearly the whole command. Toombs. Famous old Bob Toombs has recently joined the Methodist Church, and the" boys are now recalling his noted remark upon Joe Brown's gift of foo.OOO to a Kentucky Baptist college: "Well," said the general, 'my opinion is that $5o,000 worth of stock in a water com pany on this earth is very poor insurance against hell-fire in the next." Ruskin. Mr. Ruskin is a curiosity. He is sixty-five years old and five feet and five inches in height. His face is covered to the eyes with iron gray beard. His forehead is low and retreating; his eyes gray and sparkling; his dress is a combination of the antiquated and the bizarre. To those who are unaware of his identity lie seems to le "a funny lit tle man," GEM CITY HAIR DRESSING ROOMS ; LEMON' ST., PALATKA. FLA. FRESH, SALT & SULPHUR BATHS To " Housekeepers!

These baths have been used in France and Germany for many years by at least a score of the most jiromineiit physicians with marvel ous results. The largest institution of the kind in Europo is at Keichenhall, conducted by the celebrated Dr. Von Licbig (son of Pro fessor Von Licbig, the distinguished chemist). The following letter was received from him nearly two years ago: Munich, 25 March, 1S!. Dr. J. L. Stone: Dit. Slit "Excuse my delay in answering your letter. I had to wait for a copy of the accompanying article on the action of com pressed air to send to you. The pneumatic chambers at Peichenhal'l (proprietor Mr. E. Mack), are still enlarging the circle of their patrons. East summer there were so many applicants that at the highest of the season the new comers had to wait from eight to fourteen days for a seat, and the sittings went on tho whole day. There were in the whole, 1507 persons, who took more than ti.OOO single air-baths. In consequence, Mr. Mack is erect ing now a new chamber with twelve seats, and will be able, with this and tho others, to ac comodate twenty-nine persons at a time. The establishment at Keichenhall is frequented on ly during the summer. I shall return to Keichenhall for the season in the beginning of May." The Doctor goes on to enumerate several in teresting works, giving the remarkable results of this treatment and closes with the most cor dial encouragement. Our e.xiK'rience in Rochester has satisfied us that in probably ninety per cent, of the eases coming for treatment, the Condensed Air Paths alone will cure, or do infinitely more for them than any other or all other means united; yet in exceptional cases, other agents may lie advantageously combined as auxiliary treatment, hence 1 have appliances for im proved Turkish, plain and medicated water baths, salt, sponge, sit, sun baths, etc. The appliances for giving electricity are modern and complete. I have studied every branch of medicine in both schools, and do not hesitate about giving medical or surgical treat ment when needed. Invalids are confidently requested to visit this institution on returning North, which they will find furnished with elevator, electric call lells and every comfort of a first-class sanitarium; and yet there is nothing of the "hospital" air or appearance.

About sixty million copies of The Sun have gone out of our establishment during the past twelve months. If you were to paste end to end all the col umns of all The Si n printed and sold last year you would get a continuous strip of interesting information, common sense wisdom, sound doctrine, and sane wit long enough to reach from Printing House square to the top of Mount Copernicus in the moon, then back to Printing House square, and then three-quarters of the way back to the moon again. Put The 'Scn is written for the inhabitants of the earth: this same strip of intelligence would girdle the globe twenty-seven or twenty-eight times. If every buyer of a copy of The Scn during the past year has sent only one hour over it, and if his wife or his grandfather has spent another hour, this newspaper in IStel has af forded the human race thirteen thousand years of steady reading, night and day. It is only by little calculations like these that you can form any idea of the circulation of the most popular of American newspaiers, or of its influence on tthe opinions and actions of American men and women. The Scn is, ami will continue to be, a news paper which tells the truth without far of consequences, which gets at the facts no mat ter how much the process costs, which presents the news all over the world without waste of words and in the most readable shajK?, which is working with all its heart for the cause of honest government, and which therefore le lieves that the Republican party must go, and must go in this coming year of our Lord, ls4. If you know Thi Scn you like it already, and you will read it with accustomed diligence and profit during what is sure to be the most interesting year in its history. If you do not know The Sex, it is high time to get into tho sunshine. Terms to Mail .'ubscribei's.

The Philadelphia Times. 1 .S-v THE PHILADELPHIA TIMES, Ixs4. Tiik Timf.s will enter upon the new year stronger and more prosperous than ever le fore in its history - more widely read and quoted, more heartily commended, and more licrcely ci h ici.ed, wit h a more complete or gan i.at ion, and an able ss iff of contributors and with the same independence and fearless ness that has made it successful and powerful in the past. The Ti.mks has no party to follow, no candi dates to advance, but will meet every issue, as it has ever done, with consistent devotion to the right, to honest government, and the pub lic welfare. And. while maintaining its posi tion as the leading journal of Philadelphia, it will aim to Ik; continually in the advanc) in all that ran add value to a newspaper. The value of a newspaper is not in its size or di.-play. but in the intelligence and care, the conciseness and freshness with which it is edited. Tut: Timks si nds lavishly for news from all parts of the world, but all its dis patches are carefully edited and condensed, in order to give the complete news of the day in the most concise and attractive shape, and with it a large variety of entertaining and instruc tive reading. The liest writers at home and abroad are employed to enrich its columns, and to make it a journal adapted both to the busy man and to the leisure of the home cir cle, a welcome visitor to intelligent and honest citizens of everv political, religious and social ta.-te. The Weekly Times is altogether different from the weekly nowspaiers of twenty veal's Hsu. The day of those pafiers have gone by. The telegraph and I letter local newspapers everywhere, especially in the thriving centres of riirai population, have made the old weekly metropoiitan newspaper unsatisfying. Those that cling to their ancient usages have lost their hold on our forward-moving jieople; they are but shadows of their former greatness, and they have but a shadow of their former power. Those paiers have had their usefulness, but it is gone: and. with it. they are going, too. It was not the fault of the papers: it was the im provement of the country that brought about the change;. Men and women, wherever they live, now reouire fresher news; and they re quire more than news. The Weekly Times gathers off the types of every passing week whatever has lasting in terest to the people at large, and sets it liefore them in such generosity of paix-r and print as would have astonished us all twenty yeorsago.
