The Board of Health have publislied a set of rules that will be found very use ful to all during the summer months, if they are projerly enforced. The un wonted activity in health matters need occasion no alarm, for Palatka is very healthy just now, and the precautions being taken will certainly keep it so. ' Yesterday Mr. Jos. Lynn shipped two fine cows to his place near St. Augus tine. The animals did not take kindly to Lucas' ferry boat, and liecame pretty wild when the attempt was made to put them on board.

INSTITI'TE OF HEREDITY. Tii Ininrnvruirnt of tti II ntuan Kr 4'onilerefl. . The Boston Herald of last Friday has an account of the seventh anniversary of a queer institution from which we make two extracts to show its objects: President Needliam occupied the chair at the pumic meetings in the arternoon at the Meionaon. lie said: Our society is young and its purposes are little understood. We have a labor before us that can well apall the stout est heart el. We have a world to re deem, arid the redemption will be a slow process. To make better luen physically and morally that u the work com mitted to our care. The farmers and the State governments have spent money and time to improve the breeds of domes tic animals, fan we not do as much to improve mankind? Do we not want our children to lie long lived and free from consumption and the other ills that flesh is heir to' If the father and mothers could only see that they have the power to imprint their characters and charact eristics, upon their children would there not lie more carefulness in their mar riages and in the care of themselves? To teach them this is the work of the so ciety? At the evening session, after remarks by the president and Mis. Lydia M. War ner, liev. Jesse II. Jones made his sec ond speech of the day. Ilis subject was "Scientific M trriiige." and he undertook to show what kind of people should marry c;u-h other and why some mar riages are happy while others are not. He said that there were four principal tenieranients the bilious, thesanguin, the nervous and the lymphatic. Of these, the first two are native and vital, and the hist two are products of civilization. and are non-vital. The temperaments are easily recgnized in the persons who possess them. Two married jieopl. one of whom is lymphatic and the other ner vous, can have no children. Neither will twolymathienor two nervous tem peraments combine. Tne first law of marriage is that one side shall lie. as far as possible, of a vital temperament, and the other jKirtly non-vital. The propor tion of the non-vital should 1m about one third of the whole. The most vital tem- HTunieiit of all is a combination of the i lions and nervous, and a person having this temperament should marry one hav ing the nervous temperament in the high est possible dgree. Love dwells in the temperament, not in the mere animal life, and tliat is precisely the difference U'lwwn lot and lust. " If people would oley these laws of temperament for the reproduction of the sjiecies. now well known, for one generation of thirty-three years, they will see three-quarters of the disease and misery of this world pass away. Mr. Jones gave many examples illustrating his points, among the cases cited being those of Washington Lord Cornwaliis, Napoleon and Josephine. Probahlj Waat .No Richer Fiad. ' Omaha Bee.

Walking down the Bowery one day, he saw a glaring sign over one of the nu merous museums, announcing that the "Charm ion Swimmer of the World" was on exhibition within. As he made claim to tliat title himself he concluded to en ter and investigate the matter.
