Address. THE MEW'S PALATKA. FLA., JtS'E 24. 1887. The New Election Law. The List Legislature made some radical i-hangrc in the State election law, and we are enabled to be first in giving our readers a clear view of ita provision. Many members of the Legislature are in doubt on many points, awl even the best informed have only av general knowl edge of the changes ma-le, unless they were among the few who drew it up and pasaed it as a strict party measure. Therefore it in of peculiar interest, and being too long for full insertion, we shall give ita distinctive features only. The Apportionment Pill makes Put nam the Twenty-sixth Senatorial Dis trict and gives her two members of the lower house. The cliange will be round important by reason of a provision in the election law. Bill No. 34 in "an act to provide for the registration of all legally qualified voters in the several counties of the State and to proviile for a general elec tion and for the return of elections.

The principal topic is the railroad, and if all donate as well as they talk and wish the road we will get it. It will need the assistance of every one interested to secure it, and if any hang hack and say it is coming anyway, they are mistaken, liberal donations are absolutely necessary to secure it. It is both unfair and ungenerous to stand hack and let others give, while every one can do something. Those wlio hang back are gen erally willing to get all the benefits pos sible and also do more railroad talking than a manager can. Come, forward every one, while the chance is open. Mr. ivnigni, with his corps, is surveying near Satsuma for a crossing f the J, T. &K.W. R. R. The fine rains we are now getting are of much lienefit.

Our municipal government is now in full force. Tlie seal having arrived, and papers on file, we are waiting for some thing to come before the mayor, so as to appear like business.

At Leesburg the Florida Southern Railway branches off toward tlie St. Johns River, touching that stream at As- tor. It is but a short run after leaving Leesburg, until the train is skirting Lake Griffin, one of the chain of lakes wldch are drained by the Ocklawalia River. Before the train had gone two miles, the lake burst into view, with the big white caps rolling high and fast. Calihage pal mettos stud the shore of thia lake, and tlie cars run among tlietn until tlie road cuts across a narrow fieninsular and is lout in the luininm-k for a mile. Tlien comes another view of tlie lake, a tag 'gator rolls lazily off a log and the train pulls up at Lanier, a picturesque station. standing alone on tlie shore of the lake. Soon tlie road leads again into the thick. tangled hammock, and a last glinqiHe of Lake Griffin is ottained down a narrow road which led straight toward the water and ended between two tow ering palinettoes. A short run through deadenings of oaks, forming huge cornfields, which are aluMist completely shaded by fine paV mettoes growing naturally and almost in geometrical lines and figures. All along the road to Lisbon the way is lined by trailing vines, iassion Mowers, grajie vines and wild morning g'ones. Back of these are huge deadenings planted with thrifty orange trees. The train leaves Lake Griflin at Or ange Bend, and makes off due east to Lisbon, crtissing the Ocklawalia River on iile bridges. Tlie river has two or three sejiarate and distinct channels at this place, and all along these channels. both up stream and down, are tioats filled with fishermen, busy catching fish of all kinds that frequent . Florida streams. Here comes one of the prettiest views to be seen in Florida. Away to the east. and lust a little south of east, over Goose Prairie and way beyond Lake Eus- tis, the city of Eustis shows up in a most advantageous manner. It does not look like Florida. It is not customary to see a city from a hill top here, but tliat is just the appearance which Eustis pre sents, with thia exception: Eustis is built on a hillside, and therefore apieara as if spread out for the beholder's a proval. In fact, tlie range of hills in and lie v aid Eustis does not look like Florida. It looks like a Northern view, with ita lake and hills. The train it now rattling across Grand Island, the great vegetable farm. Tliere is a gliniise on the left of Lake Yale. On tlie right a 40-acre tomato patcli. then a belt of pine woods, tlien another forty acres of tomatoes, while ''truck patches' are to he seen in every direc tion. Just as Fort MasaKi comes in view, a toot from the whistle sends all the brake men a twirling at tlie la-akes. until they look as twisted up as a rattan thicket. It takes two more toots on the whistle to straighten them out again, iust as the train stops on the pier jutting out into Lake Eustis. Fort Mason wore quite a metroinilitan air, which was imitarted by the presence of a dozen goats tieside the Lake View House. Those goats were thorough breds. They were serenely making tin- supper on tin cans, railroad spikes and a dessert of etitton waste from the car wheel boxes. A pile-driver liehind the combined gro cery, post office and furniture store, the broad expanse of Lake Eustis. the docks and railway terminus, gave tlie town a a decidedly New Jersey kiok. and it only needed a White Star steamship to com plete the picture of Jersey City, N. J Snowden's assorted store seemed to be quarantine,! by an old cow, who stood vigilant guard by the front dior, and onlv paused to take a bite now and then of her lunch oT old paper and harre hoops. The train voon 1 Kicked out on a Y, ami waited for he train from Astor. A thunder shower off in the northeast mut tered and grumbled, the lightning flick ered aimlessly around trying in vain to determine which of the big dead woods to hit first. Here a car full of darky lahorets was set off. to proceed by tlie next train to Astor, where certain work is in progress. All along tlie lake are many dizzy palms. rugged live oaks, and most agonizing dead ones. Somehow, these dead and wierd looking, old oak trees seem to give a fellow tlie horrors, and make him as a darky said : "feel fearful." Eustis is a pretty town, and, as liefore stated, lies prettily on a pretty lake. Here a darky dumped the mail ltgs into a building, where a lady with Maming red apron, which contrasted finely with the darky's black face and gleaming teeth and eyes. The steamboat Diimtch, of Jackson ville, lies at the wharf, together with three or four sloops, which display the most alarming amount of standing rig ging imaginable, while off towards the east, in an opposite direction, Eustis lies pretty and quiet ; her liousea white, church spires, and tall moss-draid pine trees, showing splendidly against the black pile of thunder clouds which were following us along. The station of Mount Homer stands alone in the woods with but a solitary house to watch it Here the conductor dropped a note, to secure which a bare footed urchin "raced with himself" so hard the passengers all smiled, and gave tlie little chap a cheer. Just before that station is reached fine residence is passed, which being built well hack from the road and upon the bank of the lake, offered a pretty view down the banana-lmed avenue leading to the bouse. The 'style of the house gaveitaway as '"English dont'eher know? and a well put question to the express messenger brought forth the in formation that one English cousin, pin ing for roast beef, had departed to the land thereof from this "blarsted coun- try." Just outside of Tavares the quarantine agent came aboard and called for "'atifi- cates with a touch of considerable wea riness in hia voice.

Being at the key to the passage between five large lakes, Tavares will lie an import ant railroad center, and already tracks lead off in six directions on as many roads. Tlie creation of Lake County has made things lively down liere, ami Tavares, Eustis. Lisbon and Leeshurg are all set ting their cais to catch the new county seat. Leeslairg will prove a fotmnlalile rival in this "courting match," but the big opera house in process of const ruc tion here, hv Mr. Abrams. may i .rove a favorable liait in Ta- vares bands. Several people were asked 'what will Im done with that Imk building wlien it is finished?" AH those jieople expressed themselves .as 'trying to solve the same ques tion. Presently the writer put the question to a quiet looking chap who said softly "just yl wait until we get the county seat liere, then we'll show you what we can do with that big build ing." Tavares has twenty trains per day. in every direction several big lirick Mock a finished off into stores, aisl over them in to genuine New York flats, which are Koing a hedging for a rent, also like New York, viz: 4' I'r month! Lake Dora, just south of the town, is a pretty lake, but her luniks are defiled with wrecks of old sawmills and several defunct steamlmnts, which it would lie a mercy to burn and remove forever from sight. Thia ia the magic city we read so much about, and if the magic holds out ten years longer, the city will lie a big one, and a reality instead of magical. There are some skeeters here, as well as at Punta lorda; even tlie citizens of Tavares do not deny that mosquitoes are plentiful. Indeed, they glory in the size and well-kept condition of the insists. They are none of tlie little Mack, half starved Cliarlotte Harlior variety. Tliey re pretty well fed ami well-kept. A small lioy caitured yourcorreionl- dent at tlie train and led him to a lii'-l where many locomotive engineers lio bid themselves, and as your scrilie is a meclianical enginneer, he uiade himself comfortable at the Tavares House. Hog and hominy were set liefore him. also hot biscuits, "light" bread, two kinds of tieef, fruits and vegetables, but ter, milk, tea or cotTe. Who says the iieople starve in Florida?

After supiT a big watermelon pro veil too teiiqiting and resulted in tlie total de struction of tlie melon. A dream visited tlie writer, and, fier- chance, that dream was lart and parcel, or even the ghost of that dcKirtcd melon. Right east from my hotel window, is tlie new ojiera Immihc, and the derricks stand stiff ami erect on its unfinished roof. At the station is a large pile of ar tesian well Isiring utensils, and in tlie dream these got all mixed up with Jlie opera house. It seemed as if your correspondent was in tlie opera house and that he lay chained to the Moor, while away up on tlie roof workmen were driving an ar tesian well, using the roof as a Miint of vantage instead of the derrick usually employed. We were right in the way of that drill. It danced and churned upon our lindy. and every time it struck . Oh I the agony was indescribable, but it hit ex actly in tlie region of that melon every time. Blow after blow came as the heavy drill descended in rapid stroks. Finally, the agony liecame unliearahle.

James F. Hob art, Interlachen. Fla. A a Office Beeeers Prshsscla. Thurlow Weed used to tell about a man from the western part of the state of New York, with a most resplendent and fiery proboscis, who went to Albany for the purpose of asking an office of Governor Bouck. Being cautioned not to appear before the fcovernor (who was a strong temperance man) in that nose, he, by the advice of a waggish physician, applied a flax-seed poultice to it before going to bed the night previous to the intended call on the governor. The next morning he ap peared at the breakfast table of the hotel, with his nose bleached and parboiled, looking for all the world like a washer woman's thumb. The doctor was himself an applicant for office, living in the same hotel, and had advised the poultice only in joke; but when he found the man had actually applied it, he let the cat out ot the bag. The boarders were accordingly on the lookout for the patient in the morn ing, and when the nose appeared there was snch a roar of laughter at the table that tlie poor fellow had to change hia lodgings before calling upon the temper ance governor.
