Aa the indieatfcma indicate fair weath er, we may have the benefit to-day of the Bhowera which have been withheld of late. We nerve notice hereby on all who may feel themselves concerned that The PaUlTKA News will hyphenate with nothing. All-the State haa an interest in the Sub-Tropical Exposition. Palatkana sliould attend the meeting at the Board of Trade rooms this morning. It is to be hoped that there will be no conflict of authority between the Ilealth Board and the Ilealth Officer. The main thing is to secure the health of Palatka. The Florida Legislature lias got into some sad muddles during the latter part of its session, but that over the Railroad Commission Bill is the most curious of all. The copy of that bill which reached this office yesterday, alleged to be "Sen ate Bill No. 1," repeated two separate provisions, each time in the same lan guage. Even the members have given the tangle up as a hopeless tasWand the Senate will begin de nirvo. The Jacksonville Morning New came oat, yesterday, greatly improved in ap pearance. It had doubled up, thereby increasing its pages to eight, and making its sue far more convenient to the reader. Added to this was an entirely new dress of thin faced type and a new arrange ment of matter, which constitute an attractive make-up. Barring a slight paleness of the editorial page anil choked up appearance of the title head the Jack sonville Morning New is now a very attractive ptSt. The Morning New has also absorbed its evening contemo- nur. the Heritld. We shall miss the Herald from our exchanges, but expect to see something of the spirit that ani mated it in the New-Herald, as the new paper will hereafter be called. The Remiblican financial policy be- . comes a more threadbare absurdity every day. The surplus must be reduced as all adtnit. But tbe protective tariff which, with the aid of the Internal Rev enue taxation, causes this surplus, must not, the Republicans insist, be reduced The latest and most alxmrd proposition is that of the New York Tribune to re duce the revenue by increasing the tariff to such a point tliat it be comes prohibitory. The rabid pro tectionists desire to entirely exclude foreign made articles on which protec tive duties are now collected, to the end, that the American manufacturers may 'have the field entirely to themselves and be able, by combination, to rob the pock ets of their fellow countrymen. Since May 1, $6,000,000 have been added to the gold holdings of the United States Treasury. . Senator Sherman. The most indefatigable of American politicians is John Sherman. He is al ways ready for a re-delivery of his oft heard statements of the position of the two parties as he chooses to see it and no invitation to air his views is neglected. The approach of the Presidential cam paign inspires Sherman with renewed vigor of misstatement and acrimony of invective. After his recent trip through the South he made a speech at Nashville which was chiefly noted for its attempt to soften the old falsehoods which had done service so long. But John could not learn a new tune after so many years of piping the old one, nor would it par him. There is a certain element of the Republican party which can hurrah to nothing else but abuse of the South and it is this element that the Ohio Sen ator considers the bucklione of his party. Senator Sherman knows and regrets that "the war is over. In a measure he is determined that it shall not he entire ly over while he and the editors of the Cincinnati Commercial-Gazette and the New York Tribune live. If necessary he will remain himself the Last Irrecon ciliable. He will never forgive the South, no, never, so long as his place in the Senate is made more secure and his chances for the Presidency enhanced by deceiving the Nortliern public into the belief that there was no surrender at Ap pomattox and no manly attern(t on the part of the South to meet the new con dition of things. The lecture last night at Springfield, 111., which the Associated Press fur nishes the country, contains absolutely no new idea. As for argument, there is none in any of Sherman's harangues, Such statements as tliat the Democratic party is the left wing of the Con federate army might be met by the counter statement that the Republican party has made a covenant with hell. They are equally beneath argument. beneath the level of fair statement, be neath anything Init contempt. But when Sherman repeats the trite mis statement that the Republican party is the friend of labor he invites attention to the fact that the laltor troubles are con fined almost exclusively to States where the Republican party is no dominant or where the laws affecting labor are made by Repub lican Legislatures. Tbe Republican Senate is the stronghold of capitalists. The institutions which so nearly rohlied the people of the remnant of the public domain grew out of Republican suprem acy. All that has been done to pro tect the people, and therefore the work ingman, from the encroachments of cap ital has come from Democratic Legisla tures and the Democratic branch of Congress. It is in the endeavor to persuade the work ingman that -he is of a class distinct front the people at large that Sherman hows himself tbe demagogue. In the palmy days of the Republican party the worker in metals was particularly given to understand thai he wa of the favored class among the people of tbe United States. It became necessary, anewara, to widen the lists of interested supporters of the tariff, and the growers of wool were included among those protected by neavy tariff 4 u ties, but, although wool grow ing is a considerable interest in Sherman's own State he consented to a considera ble reduction in tbe wool tariff, ruinous to those who had built their expecta tions on an unnaturally stimulated uvket This was done to soothe the rising feeling against tbe tariff which was then becoming: more a burden than ever and to sav the idol of the Repub lican leaders, the iron industry. The United States has a thousand in dustries, but latw many of them are pro tected? Are t be work ingmen tbeuwei ves protected agrinst the immigration of skilled labor? Perhaps they cannot be, but when Sherman proclaims that the Republican party is the only friend of the workingman he deceives hundreds only where once he deceived tens of tliousanda. The Yellow fever. The news from Key West is far from reassuring. The development of five new cases within so short a time, as in dicated in our sieeial, of last night, indi cates that the disease lias taken a fresh start. It is confined to strang ers, at present, and does not seem epidemic in its charac ter, is the report. Our correspondent was nnable to interview the Board of Ilealth yesterday, but promises to do so to-day and, if possible, send us a full re port of the situation. While there is no cause for alarm at present, there is no time for disputing. The most thorough and intelligent work is needed in every town in the State to put it into as cleanly a condition as posssble. The ditches, one of the principal dangers, should be cleared of the weeds in which animal and vegetable matter may corrupt un seen, and, if jiossible, Huslied often or continuously to keep theiu clear of decaying matter. If the waste water of our numerous flow ing wells is to lie turned into them, as it should be, now is the time for thiseourse to be adopted, not when disease has be come rife. There are other things than yellow fever to be feared. kemarkaITle'kescue. A Clil J Palled 160 feet np a Well Hole with a Hook. New York Herald. San Antosio, Texas, May 28. The story of a singular and serious accident comes from a German settlement near New Braunfels. fifty miles north of this city. One of the farmers in tliat vicin ity recently started boring an artesian well in his backyard. After going lr feet without signs of water he abandoned the project and removed the framework around the well hole, which was eleven inches in diameter. From time to time neighbors examined the well and by this means the hole was left uncovered One day this week the farmer's two-year- old child was playing in the vicinity of tbe well and when its mother came to look for the little fellow he had disap peared. Becoming alarmed she searched the yard, and going to the well heard the plaintive cry of "Papa! paia! papa!" When the woman realized the truth she was frantic, and running to the field called her husiand and his helpers. The news quickly spread among the neigh bors wlw congregated to oiler assistance, At hrst the parents could think of no way to n-scue the child. A rope was dropped tlown. but the child could not grasp it. lhe cry grew ramter and fainter, and at the end of the first si hours a stout iron hook was lowered; and after many fruitless attempts, occu- Kivinir iwouaysaim muiitn, uwuminu-im . !

The little fellow now lies in a critical c nditi'n. its body fearfully lacerated by the hoop and gr aft'y exliauuted from its long immurement. The Latest Thing Im Bustles, New York Star.

IT. Mabrv. President of the Senate: Dear Sir: Your joint committee to visit Kissimmee City and the territory adjacent thereto affected by tbe opera tions of the Okeechobee drainage, to re port upon the susceptibility of cultiva tion, report as follows: Tbe committee arrived at Kissimmee City Monday. May 23, 1W7. and on Tues day visited the re-claimed lands on Lake East Tohopekaliga. We hnd this lake eight feet two inches below its original level, with a handsome beach of firm white sand, three or four hundred feet wide, hard and level, where formerly was seven or eight feet of wa ter, a magnificent drive of some sev enteen miles. We find tlie surrounding marwheH and cypress swam jw are dry and readr for the plow. On this lake are situated the thriving settlements of Nar- ossee, Kiiliemede and St. ( loud, with numerous other farms, notably that of the Lupfer Bros. All these lands are in the highest state of cultivation, with handsome cnsof sugar cane, corn, po tatoes and various vegetables, all vigor ous and thrifty. Abe lands are exceedinglv fertile, and though but nit-nfl V fratl from two to four feet of standing water, are now dry and tit for all crops of a teiniier- ate or suit-tropical climate. We find tlie muck soli (comMMed of decayed veget able matter) from eiglueen inches to nine feet deep. At St. Cloud your committee saw growing 110 acres of suirar cane. 1 15 acres of rice and 1N acres of corn.all ex ceedingly vigorous and forward: thison land formerly covered with water jierm amently impassable for man or beast. The ditches on this tract are numerous and from three to five feet deep and dry to tbe bottom, making a most perfect system of drainage. These lands, form erly utterly valueless, are now worth hundreds of dollars per acre, an.l have added much to the material value of the State. We find that crops of all kinds that have been planted have grown re markably (well particularly vegetables for early market, caMsige. caulitlower. rish potatoes, onions and strawberries being exceedingly thrifty and largely cultivated and shipped. At St. t loud we found 1JHHI acres of this land I icing rapidly put in liaie for an extensive sugar plantation, the in tention being to plant the present crop of 110 acres, making 750 acres in cane. Machinery to handle the product of l,-Ou acres of cane lias lieen purchased, and contracts made to purchase all cane de livered at the mill at remunerative prices. On Wednesday vour committee visited the reclaimed lands on lakes Tohoie kaliga. Cypress and Hatchinaha, st- ping at the model farms of l.ieut. It. 1. Smith-Dorien. A. S. Kinsman, and the South Port farm. All these farms are on lands formerly ermanently inundated, and are now in a high state of cultivation and improvement, with crops of corn. rice, tobacco, vegetables, etc., and with thrifty orchards of peach and other fruit trees, now in full fruit age. The peach orchard of A. S. Kins man, being particularly notable as grow ing Uxn a former bttg and now bearing its sect nd trop, though but three years from its planting. Lieut. II. T. Smith !rien'8 model farm (Hare's Foot Farm), directly opposite Kissimmoe City, is a model of neatness and high cultivation, and the thrifty erojw thereon testify to the extreme fertility and value of the reclaimed lands. We find from the record kpnt hr IJeut. Kmith-ilorien thnt I be Tohoiekatiga is now 2 feet 4 inches lie- low its level of May 1, lWi, and that the total lowering of tlie lake has lieen seven feet four inches. We submit herewith a tabulated statement showing the annual rainfall and average for htteen years, ending January. 1nn7. It shows the av erage rainfall for fifteen years lias lieen fifty-six and one hundred tifty-six thou sandths inches, and the average rainfall for tlie six years covering the iienod of the operations of the Drainage i'oiiiiunr to lie fifty-six and sixty-eight hun dredths inches, or .ft 15 inches greater average for the whole period of fifteen years. It also sliows that the greatest rainfall for any year during tbe fifteen years was in !!.. being sixty-eight and ninety-one hundredths inches, thus cor recting the current reiiort that drought or dry weather had materially affected the oiierations of the Drainage t oinianv wlien in fact a greater annual anil aver age rainfall has occurred during the time the compu.iy lias lieen at work than lor fifteen veais past In conclusion, your committee would say mat tne extreme fertility and im mense value or the reclaimed lands can scarcely be estimated, and their sus ceptibility for profitable cultivation has been practically demonstrated bv the crops now o t thorn, and the statements of liable and well im'ormed res:dents. Sixty-five tons of ca ie. seventy bushels of corn, seventy bushels of rice have been raised lier acre on the lands. elec tables for the early Nortliern market are largely raised; caulitlower, cabbage and unions are raised extensively, one grower having sixty acres of cabiiage hist season, these itoiw are made en tirely without fertilizers. Tbe remark able adaptation of these lands for grow ing sugar cane is fullv attested by the following resrt of Colonel L. A. Brin gier, lately of Ijouisiana. clios n an an exiiert bv Northern capitalists to reiiort upon tbe value of the drained land for sugar growing : Bauateue Urove. Lake Haru ) Sumter Vk Fla.. May 11, 17. 4 Having been dulv notified by Captain R. E. Rose that 1 had lieen appointed to inspect, as exjiert. and rert on the adaptability of tliereclaired lands of the Okeechobee Drainage Company to the cultivation of the tropical sugar cane. on tlie tth inst., I insected sev eral hundred ac.-es of said land, l.x-atcd on East To lopekaliga Lake. These re claimed lands, which are covered with deposits of muck (decayed vegetable matter), varying from eighUvn inches to nine feet in depth, are susceptible of thorough drainage, owing to the lower ing of the water level of said lake, of seven and a half feet, by the drainage canals of the Okeeeholiee Com pany. Tlie great fertility of these re claimed lands and tl-eir susceptibility of being thoroughly drained, make them the most desirable sugar lands that liave ever seen in my long experience of over thirty- ix years as a sugar planter, Anotlter very important consideration in favor of the manufacturing of sugar in Kissimmee and Okeecliobee Uistricts. is the tropical climate of that section of the peninsula, where Killing frosts are oi very rare oi-currence, which assures the manufacturer four months (from No vember 1 to March 1 to manufacture into sugar the raw material of a large area of cane fields. The great economy in fuel, the increased quan tity and superior quality of the n gars oiitained by commencing manufac turing operations after the cane lias at tained its full maturity, have lieen so of ten and satisfactorily proven by able and most reliable wie it ists in Louisiana and West India Islands, that I will alwtain from further particulars on this point, fruni information gatliered from resi dents and non-interested parties, and perstmal observations, I find this claimed district to lie as healthy as any portion of the peninsula, free from ma larial complaints and nearly so of winged insects. (Signed) L. A. Brixgier. Thousands of acres are now awaiting the husbandman, while thousands are now being put in cane, rice and other crop. The fertility of the drained lands is unsurpassed and must be seen to lie fullv appreciated. Tbe reclaimed land are particularlv adaittod to grazing and stock raising. Your committee having noted many herds of fine catle fettling upon lands" now dry. formerly under wa ter, the herbage being from two to four feet high and of the most nutritious and valuable character; fields of "wild mil let." a natural growth unknown before tbe reclahuation, now cover vast traca. making fine forage and the best of hay, cutting from four to six tons of natural grasses per acre. Your committee having only to report on tbe susceptibility of 'drained lands to cultivation, find that they are suscepti ble in the highest degree to profitable cultivation, particularly for rice and sugar cane the rice crop particularly be ing made at bttle expense, requiring only breaking of tbe land, sowing the seed and harvesting, no cultivation be ing required, while tlie lands are left in perfect condition for sugar cane, des tined doubtless toabe the greatest and most remunerative industry of the State in the near future. The immense value of the reclaimed lands to the State, the immense revenue to be derived from their cultivation, make it of the utmost importance to the State, and particularly to tlie Southern counties, tliat the drainage scheme lie carried to a speexly completion. We therefore recommend that such legislative action lie had during the pres ent session as ill authorize tlie Board of nternal Improvement to act promptly and efficiently in securing tliei comple tion oi tne work. j. 1.. Iiaskins. W. II. Neeu THE BOOK OF MO I .HONS. A New Story of the Origrin of the Nwhwim I tilde. New Yirk star. The recent conference of tlie Jiweph- ites. or monagamous Mormons, at Kirt land, Ohio, and the extended reports of their roceeding in tlie Glofie-Ik-nutrnit, says a corresiiondent of that journal, has renewed public interests in the iieeuliar taitii to whicli memiiersof tins church subscrilie. The origin of the Book of Mormon have never been clearly estab lished. Tlie Latter day Saints, of course accet tlie statements of Joe Smith and U-lieve it to he an inspired work. Hie general public, however, are hardly as redulous and regard the alleged bible as , fraud the work of some clever roman- cist rc.her than as the translation of liieroglyphcs on golden plates by a nineteenth century profit. Hie Spauld ing theory, with which every one at all acquainted with tlie subject is familiar. has tlie most advocates. I hey hold that Sauldiiig's manuscript of bis romance. lhe Manuscript round, fell into the hands of Joe Smith. Sidney Rigilon and others, and from that fanciful work was Co ist meted the Book of Mormon. If this tbeo -y lie true, it will astonish orthodox hurch people to learn that a Congrega tional divine, one of tlie foremost of bis tne in .New England, is responsible for the introduction of tbe "twin relic of liurbcirism. cm the Utah Church has been called in this country. Ke. Ethan Smith, wlio died at an ad vanced age early in tlie "forties, was one of the lights in the Congregational Church in New England. A man of deep learning, be was at once a preacher, author and philosopher, holding to many ideas far m advance or his tune. Oneof his pet hobbies was the N-lief that the North American Indian were descended from the lost tribes of Israel, who came over to this continent several hundred years la-fore . Christ, built great citi-s and reached a very high state of civiliza tion. liev. Dr. Smith wrote a work on the subject, which after completion he de cided not to publish, fearing that it might injure bis reputation as a theolog ical writer. This liook was an elabora tion of the theory Dr. Smith had so long maintained. Taking as its foundation the migration of tlie lost trilies of Israel to the Western Coniineiit, it described the hegira from Palestine, the establish ment of the Jews in wliat is now Central America and Mexico, the founding of a great empire, and its gradual decline and fall. It told of magnificent cities inhabited by an enlightened and Chris tian ieople. The author claimed for them a civilization equal to that of Erypt or Jerusalem. Hundreds of years passed, and the history of the Eastern Jews was repeated on tlie Western Con tinent, yuarrels lietween tbe various trilies sprang up, bloody wars were waged and tbe prncess of disintegration liegan. . Gradually the people were scat tered, their cities destroyed and all sem blance to a nation was lost. TliousajnU perished by iiestilence and the sword. and tbe remnants of a once mighty na tion re'aiisetl into a state of barbarism. Iroiii them their descendants. Or. Smith claimed, were the Indians of North America and the Aztec of Mexico. This is aliiKist exactly similar to the story told in tbe I took of Mormon. Solomon Siiaulding was a warm ad mirer of Dr. Smith, and when a young man studied under his tuition. He be came interi-sted in his theories regard ing the settle nent of America, and in turn Dr. Smith look the young student into bis confidence and granted him the perusal of his unpublished book. Sfiauld uig was deeply impressed with the truth of this theory and pursued his investiga tions even farther than Iff. Smith had ventured. Taking the hitter's views, as expressed in Ins book. Sprulding some years later wrote his famous "Manu script Found, which afterward fell into tlie hards of Joe Smith. and was reconstructed into tlie Itook of Mormon. Indeed it is not at all unlike ly that Dr. Smith's original manuscript, which, it is paid, Spaulding had in his Hissession. suffered a similar fate. At any rate it has never lieen seen since. These facts are told your corrosjionilent by a grandson of Dr. Smith, now resid ing in this city. He states that the 'ltook of Mormon differs very slightly, as far as its general outline is concerned, from the historical romance written by bis grandfather sixty or seventy years ago, and he is quite certain tliat the Mormon faith is founded on the produc tion of that worthy pastor's fertile im agination. A Timler. A very characteristic story of men who run to brains is told of Itcv. Philip D. Scliaff. who altout thirty years ago was preaching in Mercersliurg, Pa. The reverended doctor up to tliat time bad iie.er lieen married, nor had be kept house. By tlie charms of one of the sisters of his flock he was jiersuaded to do the former, and a matter of fact the latter followed. He ami his wife had not lieen long domiciled when tbe perplexing question arose of how to get rid of tbe kitchen refuse. The doctor was advised by a neighbor to buy a small pig. and the advice was accoiniKtnied by an offer to sell him one. Accordingly the pig was purchased, and immediately another problem came tip to be solved, viz: how to get a j n for it. Casting aliout. the doctor discovered a large dry goods box in which senile of Ins household effects had been received. He set to work with saw and hammer, ami with pieces of boards from tlie Imi he soon constructed a fien, which was only a little larger than the pig itself. In a few weeks the pig grew so that it hardly had room to turn around, and another difficult question had to lie set tled. The doctor studied over this mat ter several days; meanwhile the pig was hourly getting la-ger. He finally de cided to go over to tbe neighbor from wliom it w as purchased, and ask if he would be kind enough to excliange evenly and give him anotlier email pig for tlie large one mat naa outgrown its pen. Tbe lady telling this story. Miss Emma C. (Viok. of Washington, D. C tlien a child of ten. says she sat in her fatlier's wagon, while the good doctor told her father, in all seriousness, how kind his neighbor was to give him a small pig t'tr his large one, without charging any dif ference.
