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.

The tune, then, to prepare for an epi

The action of the City Councilmen in

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
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.

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

Sections five and six of this act. any
railroad company in this State may pre
sent its protest to the said Railroad Com

rates of freight and assenger tariffs or

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

previous action as will be just ami rea

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

Mr. Mallory offered the following
amendment to Section 9, which
adopted :

State. ho willfully violates any of the

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

And Section 21 was also amended

And Mr. Walker off ered the following

slightly amende! and adopted.

extent only that no rates or schedules

freight sliall lie provided for them

There lieing no further amendments
offered, the bill as ami nihil was ordered
engrossed for a third reading.
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.
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

ing tliat the bill, as it came from the
Palatka Board of Trade, might lie sup
posed to embody the desires of the citi

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.
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
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.
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
