It is evident Interlacben will continue i. ru a livflv nlaro. at least so lone aii that bear is loose. The British Hosiery Co'. Mills at Thornton, R. L, was imported to this country, plant and operative. The mills are about to be reduced to half time or closed down altogether on account of oyer production. The managers and the operatives have now an opportunity to study the problem: Does Protection protect ? The appointment of a sanitary inspec tor would be an excellent thing, but he should carry some badge by which ho can be recognized and should be made to understand that it is a part of his duties to be civil to those upon whose-premises he enters for the purpose of inflection. An unknown man in citizens' clothes and showing no badge and no warrant from a court for entering the premises ot another person is simply a trespasser. Be Always Prepared. The yellow fever scare at Key West seems to be about over. There is another suspicious case reported which has not been ascertained to lie yellow fever. la fact, there is doubt exprersed tliat the deaths at Kev West were really from the dread disease. If they were, judging from the history of the cases at Bay St. Louis, there may be a few cases reported from time to time until the disease dies out entirely or becomes suddenly active and spreads rapidly. Which course the disease may take depends upon conditions of weather as well as uon cleanliness. It is well to make early preparation To insist upon stricter attention to sani tary regulations when the epidemic is at our doors is useless. If the ditches have been reeking with rotting animal and vegetable matter, if tlte streets have been unclean and private premises allowed to reek in filth, then every inhabitant lias been put in good condition for the disease to fasten on. The human body is not a stable thing like an iron pout but an always changing con gregation of organs, in which the form even is not stable, slowly changing wit h the ifrowth, while the material is still more unstable. Subject to the fluctu ations of the aerial ocean in which we live, our bodies are affected by every chansre in its constituents and the mut- ter held involution in the form of mist. ejs, bacteria or solid particles. The tune, then, to prepare for an epi demic is long before it comes. In fact, let us le always prewired for an epidemic. Then will Pakttka preserve the name of Lein;? a healthy town and all its inhabitants will profit continually thereby. The action of the City Councilmen in taking steps for the appointment of a Health Officer and an inspector cannot be too highly commended. IN A COMATOSE CONDITION Strange Case of a Bov Huflforlna; front a erv fchock. A dispatch from Detroit. Mich., to the New York Timea says: David Oppen heiin, fifteen years old, is lying at the home of his parents in this city in a con dition which puzzles some of the best medical talent. He has been employed for some time as a night messenger, and is spoken of by his employ era as a faithful and intelligent lad. The boy's duties usually kept him up until after daylight. An elder brother who occupies the same room with David re members that about 1 o'clock Sunday morning the latter returned home and crept shivering into bed. His brother asked what was wrong, but received no answer and soon afterward fell asleep. When the family awoke in the morning David was found with his head covered under the bed clothes, apparently wide awake but unconscious of anything go ing on around him. When spoken to he did not answer, but lay staring wildly about. He remained in this pecu liar condition until the afternoon, when a large dog belonging to one of the neighbors came into the hotse. As soon as the boy saw the animal he uttered a loud shriek and once more covered his head with the clothes. When his mother rushed to his side Duvid exclaimed: "The dog. the dog. for (iod's sake put it out." After the dog had been ejected the boy Iwcanie more quiet, and when pressed by his nurther to tell what was wrong, he told in a broken voice that at about 11 o'clock the night before he had been sent to take a mes sage to a bouse on one of the princial residence streets. When he reached the house a large black dog jumped from the gateway and snapied at him. In his fright the hoy ran. never stopping until he reached his home. After telling this much Dav'd relapsed into his coma tose condition and has remained so ever since. He spends the entire time in a sort of doze, only waking sutHciently at long intervals to take a little food, ami is un able to answer any question in a rational manner. A numlier of leading physicians-in the city have lieen called in. and all agree that the boy has received a se vere nervous shock, evidently resulting from fright, and that the case is one of the most remarkable instances of nerv ous shock ever coming under their notice. Practical Heroism. New York World. The brave conductor who lost his life at Wilkesbarre in an effort to save a wo man and child, belongs . to the band of unknown heroes who remind the world, from time to time, that the spirit of gen erous self-sacrifice is still alive. In our time many men of intellect preach to the world a gosiwl of despair. A certain school of dyspeptic poets tell us, with infinite weariness, that life is not worth living, and more generous spirits bewail what they conceive to be a decadence of moral heroism and manly impulses. But, after all. the world is better than it is painted. The undaunted martyr no longer avows his faith amidst the climbing flames, but the spirit of persecution which took his life is dead. Tbw martyr yet lives, but he is lost in th common mass of humanity, because kindness rules the world and the on leal of fire no longer brings him into promi nence. The old knights have passed away, but the sorrows and distresses of infirm hu man ty still keep busy the marshalled chivalry of the souk It is an inspiration to know that men yet linger on earth who are ready to lay down their lives for others, and to feel that the Heroic Age abides forever. . completed work.

THE RAILROAD COMMISSION The Railroad Commission Bill passed the Senate on Saturday, will scarcely be clianged in the House, as the Senate took the bill as it passed the House, and added a number of sections, proposed by Sen ator Walker, which the House will doubtless concur in. The four sections of the Senate Bill,(which was originally identical with a House Bill,) were adop ted in lieu of the same sections of the House Hill, as they contain slight amend ments made in the Senate. Section 5 was very slightly amended as follows on motion of Senator Stockton: Amend by adding to Section 6 the fol lowing: Prvrideii farther. That the said Commissioners shall not exercise any of the powers granted inSections 5 ami of this act until after having given notice by publication in such newnuyieni ami for such time as shall le deemT fair ami advisable by said Commissioners, to all railroad companies to be affected and to the public generally, of the times and places of their meetings, to adopt rules regulations, make rates of charges, or to cliange and revise schedules, and all cor porations and persons interested shall be entitled to a full and fair hearing before aid Commissioners. Senator Walker offered the following as Sections 7, 8,0. 10, 11, 12 ami 13, which were adopted. Kectiojc 7. That within thirty davs after" the said Railroad Commissioners shall have made and fixed any rates of freights anil assenger tariffs and any rules and regulations required to tie made by them under the provisions of Sections five and six of this act. any railroad company in this State may pre sent its protest to the said Railroad Com missioners itrotesting against the en forcement of any one of, or all of. the rates of freight and assenger tariffs or otlier rules and regulations made by said Railroad Commissioners, and any railroad company so protesting shall set forth in its protest, the points depended iin to tliow why the action of the Commissioners protested against should not lie enforced. The Railroad Com missioners. uion the representation of such protest, shall set a day for the Itearing thereof. which day sliall not be more than 20 days frou the presentation of said pro test, at which day said Railroad Com missioners shall consider said protest and 1-ear the representatives of the railroad couiany thereon and such otlier iersons or corporations as may desire to be heard. And should said' Railroad Com missioners upon such hearing be satisfied that any jxint or iioints set forth in said protest are well taken, said Commission ers shall make such alteration in their previous action as will be just ami rea sonable; but should they decide that the point in said protect are not well taken tliey shall make no alteration in their previous action. Sec. 8. That the Comptroller. Secre tary of State, Commissioner of Agricul ture and Attorney General lie and are hereby constituted a Board of Revisers for the purpose hereinafter provided. Sec !. That whenever any railroad company shall present its protest and be dissatisfied with the decision of the Railroad Commissioners thereon, such railroad company shall have the right to nave said protest heard by the said Board of Revisers, and it shall be the duty of said Board of Revisers, upon the application to them of any such railroad company, to folly investigate the action of said "Railroad Commissioners in re gard to the matters protested against, and said Board of Revisers is hereby vested with full power and authority to change, abrogate, revise or remodel any action of the said Railroad Commission ers so protested against, and the action of said Board of ReviHers in such cases shall be established as the rule governing the questions upon which the said Board of Revisers shall be called upon to hear, and in order that said Board of Revisers may properly hear and determine all such protests, it tthall be the duty of said Railroad Commissioners to give said Board of Revisers free access to all patters, records and documents in their custody or con trol, and all etianges made by said Board of Revisers in the rules and regu lations established by said Railroad Com missioners shall le carefully noted bv said Railroad Commissioners, and shall become a mrt of their rules and regula tors, and control their action in all mat ters affected thereby. But after the ex piration of one year from the time any such clianges are made, the Railroad Commissioners may make application to the Itoard of Revisers to I uive any de cision of said lioardof lie vise rs rescinded or amended, and said Board of Revisers sliall liave xwer upon such application to rescind, amend, alter, orabroeate any previous decision made by it: lrvridel. That beftsre said Railroad Commission ers can make such application they shall give to the railroad com i winy interested in the subject of the application twenty days notice of tlie time when such ap plication will he made. SEC. 10. 1 nat whenever said Railroad Commissioners shall change or revise any schedule, rates or tariffs or other rule or regulation made lv them, any railroad comitany affected by such change or revision may protest against the enforcement of such change or re vision in the manner provided for hear ing protests in the preceding section. both before the Railroad Commissioners and the Board of Revisers. Sec. 11. That the expenses incurred in consequence of any protest made un der the provisions of this act sliall lie itaiil by the railroad company making tne prote.it, or iv the Mate of r lorida. as shall lie ordered in each case by the Board of Revisers. Sec. 12. The Secretary of the Railroad Commissioners sliall be the Secretary o tie Board of Revisers. . I Sec. 13. That a majority of said mem bers of the Board of Revisers shall con stitute a quorum to transact all busi ness. Mr. Bryan proMMed the following amenumeiit to t-sftioii 14. wlmli was adopted : Add to Section 1 1 : That all the rights given railroad comitaiiies by Section 8 v. 10, II, 12 and 13. to protest against any action of the Railroad Commission ers are hereby eiven also to any individ ual. corMration. firm h- artiiership who sliall les I re to make such protect as is provided that railroad coiitaiiies may make. Mr. Mallory offered the following amendment to Section 9, which adopted : Aiiil to nection the following, viz: Any siqierintendent. agent or other em ployee of any railroad coiiiatiy in this State. ho willfully violates any of the provisions of Section four (4) of this act sliall lie deemed guilty of a misdemeanor. ami. on conviction thereof, shall lie irtin- islieu iy a line not exceeding live hun dred dollars, or lv imprisonment not exceeding six months in tiie jail of the county in which such i-rsoii Is con victed. Section 8 and suliseipient sections of the House Bill were then simply amend eil by changing their numliers so as to have the same consecutive, except as to Section 19. which was amended on ni tion of Mr. Stockton, as follows : In Section 19, line 8, strike out the word "State. Strike out all after the word "Treasury" to and including the wort! "provide, in line tt, and add as follows: "tf the county in which said fine originated." And Section 21 was also amended motion of Mr. Stephens as follows: Add to Section 21: Pnn-iiletl, Tliat tlie consignee shall pay the freight charges on goods, merchandise, and oth er freights received, and shall not be compelled to pay for goods, mercliandise, ana other freights not received. And Mr. Walker off ered the following amendment as Section 25; which was slightly amende! and adopted. Add as Section 2.": Tliat short rail roads of 3.5 miles in length, or under So miles in Ietigth.ownedam! ojicrated inde pendently of any control or management of any other railroad or canal, steamship or steam I at company, shall lie exemftt eil from the operations of this act to the extent only that no rates or schedules for the transportation of assengers and freight sliall lie provided for them until complaint lie made against such short railroads. There lieing no further amendments offered, the bill as ami nihil was ordered engrossed for a third reading. FOR EDUCATIONAL PCRPOSES. The Legislature lias passed the bill ap propriating f 10,000 for the completion of the barracks or dormitory building of the East Florida Seminary at Gaines ville, also f l,tM for 1887 and 1.000 for 18S8, for ayiiig the current exjienses of the school. Tliis liberality on the part of the State will enable the Trustees to place the Seminary, an institution which has done so much for the educational in terests of Florida, and which every true citizen of the State puts a just pride, in the very front rank of Southern educa tional institutions. Students from all parts of the State can now feel assured of comfortable quarters and good living at a moderate cost and educational ad vantages excelled by none in the South. Every county east of the Suwannee River is entitled to as many free scholarships in this institution as it has representa tives in tlie lower house of the Legislature. As for West Florida Seminary, at Tal laliassee, it remains to lie seen whether those in charge of tliat institution, which stands Uon tlie same foumlation endow ment as the East Florida Seminary, and as vet has been so far behind its sister institution in prosjierity and effective ness, will be able to use the very liberal provision made for it in the will of the late Judge Westittt, in such a manner as to bring it up to an equal degree of efficiency with East Florida Seminary. The contest over the establishment of the two normal schools provided for in the Constitution is still jiending. By rights, the one intended for the instruc tion of white teachers ought to go to West Floriila, which lias as yet hail no sort of recognition from the State in the distribution of such favors and advan tages. The Senate has iassexl a bill establishing the school for colored teach ers at Ocala. and this will douUlese tie concurred in by the House, as Ocala is in the midst of the region containing the bulk of the colored population. NEW COOTIES. The latest proposition for forminig a new county is from the people of the npper portion of Polk, who wish tliat county divided almost in two equal por tions by a line drawn across the county frou eat to west, about six miles north of Bartow. This division would leave both sections (or both counties) in good shape, and make the county seat of the new county at lakeland. Th bill to make an aporopriation of lands for the benefit of the Snta Fe Canal, a pubic improvement which was inaugurated and completed without a particle of aid from the State, and which has now been in operation several years and has fully demonstrated its claims to usefulness, will be before the House this week and no opposition to its passage' has as yet been developed, all who have examined the circumstances joining in approval of it. The Jacksonville. Charter bill was amended in the Senate yesterday, by re inserting the provision for a Board of Po lice Commissioners, who shall have the exclusive right of appointing the police, but subject to supervision by thamayor. It is now in the House, ami an effort will be made to get it through out of its regular order. Mr. Hind, of Putnam, in a recent let ter to The Palatka News, seems to have taken offense at my manner of stating the status of the Palatka Charter bilL I merely mention it here to say that although Mr. Hind seems to be anx ious in his letter to create the impression tliat he has bad nothing to do with the bill or the proposed amendment, clianging the proposed salary of the mayor from $25 to 50 per month, the facts are tliat he appeared tiefore the House Commit tee, shortly after the Senate Bill (N. 74) was referred to them, and urged the adoption by the committee of this very amendment, while tlie committee, out of deference to him as the member front Putnam, and without, Jierhaps. reflect ing tliat the bill, as it came from the Palatka Board of Trade, might lie sup posed to embody the desires of the citi zens, expressed through tliat lnnly. agreed to and did report the amend ment. It will, of course, come up in Often session, and lie subject to such dis position as the people of Palatka may see tit to indicate, for in a matter of de tail like this, due deference should b and will lie, aid to tlieir wishes. ChoatK. The Ouestlon of Burial. f:ttt-r of thr 1'nUtfkrt AYir. One question or sanitation must now or soon be put to the jieople of Palatka. It is this: For the sake of the living shall the burial of the dead lie prohibited in the cemetery? This is a startling que tion, lierhaiM, to many. Tlie time mut come, and come soon, when the cem tery will lie overcrowded, r.veli now the 1 nines of the dead are often dis turlied and spaded out to make room for later dead, not intentionally, but tl Ixirial places of many dead are not known. The ground siirfjice does not indicate any sijii of burial, Down goes the spade of the grave dig ger and out it throws to the siirfai-e dead men's bones, and into the pit is lowered and bur iei I the later dead. In case of yellow fever, cholera, smalliiox and con tagious epidemics, we have had sucli the dead would lie laid irk the cemetery, and iierhaiis disturbed in a year or two. Tlie ceruis or st-ed of tlie epidemU' thrown on the surface of the groum would Im fresh under the nostrils of i pie attending burials. Even now the cemetery is in tlie inids of lKipulatmn. and habitations art crowding on the confines of it. The ni may lie insensibly iiollutcd by emana tions escaping through the loose am porous sand covering shallow graves. How subtle are insensible influences may be illustrated by a late instance A family of four lately iiossed, after dark from church, along Kirby street next morning one of the family was af fected with ioison of ri tuurivo-tleu drvn, commonly called poison oak. The inquiry was when and how was the poison communicated The vines sup posed to have imiiarted the poison are growing by rootlets to trees near the culvert on Red Water Branch, am about thirty feet from where the family passed. Under the new charter the city will have power to acquire land outside of its limits for cemetery and other purKMes. Besides the dead of the city, tlie ieopl of Palatka Heights and others for miles around inter most of their dead in ou cemetery. There is a fast accumulation of the dead in the cemetery. 1 lie ques tion of the discontinuance of burial in the cemetery must be met. There must be some limitation or restriction. It would at least lie prudent to allow inter ments only to those who now own plots and have tlieir dead buried in the ceme tery. Tlie city must procure land for cemetery piirjuises outside, and put it in good condition make good drive and walks to it. Washington Square, in New, York, was once a cemetery. The Famous Madison Square was om-e, not only a cemetery, but a '"Potter's field." What other cities had to do, Palatka may have to do for like reasons. Hamilton. Sugar Culture in Florida. Jacksonville News. Capt. Rhodes, an enterprising, public spirited gentleman from the new nint v of Osceola, was in tlie city Monday, and gave us some very interesting details in connection with his sugar plantation at the head of Lake Okeecholiee. Captain Rhodes tielieves that Florida will, in a very few years, lie rectignized as the sugar producing State of tlie South, outstripping Louisiana in this great in dustry. He now lias over 10O acres in cultivation, and next year will have ready for planting a sugar farm of 7'Nl or 800 acres. Besides, he is building a large sugar manufactory and refinery, the machinery to stock which (at a cost of M0,tk)) is already en route from Phila delphia. Capt. Rliodes thinks tlie South will in a few years produce all the sugar this country can consume, (tlioagh we are the biggest sugar-eaters in the world.) and have some to export besides. We now consume about fifty pounds per liead yearly ami the demand is still increasing. We pay more for our sugar than for our flour, strange as tlie assertion may seem, our sugar costing from live to ten per cent, more than tlie flour. Of the l,loi. 0OO tons of sugar consumed in the United States 1,000,01)0 is produced abroad ami only 100,000 at home - less than one-tenth. Hie retail price to the consumer is from five to ten cents on an average say sev en cents, if tlie 2,UU0.0O0.0O0 (two bil lions) pounds of foreign sugar, even at only two cents a pnund.took out of the country yearly 40,UJ0 000, that of itself is an immense sum. This shows what a saving it will be to our people when we can of our own product supply the home demand. -Pvlitit aa Jonraalixm. Courier Journal.
