There a general feeling that Palatka would welcome the Mendelssohn Quin tette Club on its return from the South. There has been so much of a pablic nature happening this week that the Gala Week Executive Committee taa had no room to edge in a meeting but the preparations are going on all the time. " Hew York City ia threatened with a milk famine. Orange and Westchester counties' proluct ia frozen aolid in the cans and the trains are blockaded in the now. If New York could only get at it she would hare a vast supply of ice cream. There seems to have been an almost general abandonment of trains yester day in New York, New Jersey and New England, and where the railroad mana gers had not given up in despair they were still trying to push whole miles of trains through the drift. . Thk Palatka Nzws is one of the "only papers in Flori-la publishing the Associated Press dispatches. It is also one of the papers publishing "exclu sively" "the financial quotations, market reports and weekly trade reviews of the Associated Press. " The financial quota tions and market reports are given every day on the third page and the weekly trado review every Saturday morning. If the winter continues in its present severity up North Tub Palatka News stands ready to take subscriptions for an exploring expedition to re-discover that portion of this continent north of the Potomac and Ohio Rivers. Judging from recent reports the chief business of the teeming millions up that way is shoveling snow and the towns, railroads, etc, are slowly sinking under the fleecy blanket. They expect to reappear in the spring, however, when the crocuses bloom. The weekly trade review in our Asso ciated Press dispatches to-day presents a more encouraging aspect than former re porta for this year. Mouey is gener ally easy and collections correspondingly good. There is a general absence of speculative excitement. Floridians will notice the significant fact that there is a canty supply of vegetables and that there is an advance in cotton goods. The vegetable products of this region ""bid fair to meet a hungry market. Both foreign ami domestic business show a better ap pearance and it seems, beside. that the December reports looks far bet ter for our foreign trade on revision of the figures. While the returns for Jan uary thus far indicate an excess of 5 per cent, in exports over last year for the same time, the imports at New York how an increase of 14 per cent. While the cables are informing us of the dread preparations for the war in Europe, which like to-morrow is always near at band but never comes, the press of the country fails to take note of the strained relations between the Jackson ville Timet- Union and tlie Spanish an . thorities in Cuba. Situated as South Florida is between the two unfriendly powers our position is a critical one and it is time the citizens awoke from their upineness and prepared for defense. If compelled to take sides we shall advocate an alliance, defensive and offensive, with the Time-Union. Cuba ia badly misgoverned and always has been and ia a good country for adopted citizens of Cuban birth to keop out of and when we have a navy it would be well to have a few vessels continually in Cuban waters to maintain a feeling of respect for the United States and the Times-Union. OH, NO. DO NT ! This is the sort of shriek that the Cali fornia boomers like to hear from Florida newspapers: - Mayor Lilienthal, as chairman of the committee appointed at the recent con vention of Florida mayors, cannot re convene the municipal chief magistrates any too soon. The importance of an extra session of the Legislature to pass . upon the project of establishing a State Board of Health receives fresh illustra tions every hour, and the need of na tional protection for our six hundred miles ei sea coast is no longer open to argument. For every day that action is delayed in these matters weeks and months will be lost in perfecting legis lation upon them. We hope to hear the call made at once, and the time for the meeting set at a date as erly as pos sible. To soothe the perturbed stomach of the AVirs-ieruiJ editor we would remind him that a little attention to sanitation is worth a score of doctors and would in form him that Florida's experience with a self -constituted State Board of Ileal th last summer has disgusted the Peninsula with the idea. What is needful in this State, not only this spring but every spring, is the thor ough cleaning up of all streets, gutters, ditches, drains and private premises. What is needed every summer is that the good work begun in the spring shall be kept up. Then in the fall the au thorities should see that all the ditches, drains, gutters and streets, remain in a wholesome condition and insist that citi zens shall maintain order and cleanli ness in and around their dwellings. The winter time is a good season for putting the city in such condition that there will be little work to be done in the following spring. If the sun were to rise and set after the fashion that all cities conduct the business of providing against the inroads of disease there would be no need of sanitary measures, for the world would have no inhabitants and therefore no diseases. , If the recipe given above is faithfully followed we may all goto sleep without fear that yellow fever will surprwe us before we get out of bed in the morning and would find life really endurable without a State Board of Health in a constant session of ante mortem examination on the body of the community of Florida. - A 6003 IDEA. Utters af a Kartfrsea afHcsNaral Jearaal ea aa lewattfstlne. Tear At iatsrtachoa. Corrtvnjuir nftfit Palatini JV. Lttzrlacbkx, January 23. We have had a taste of the "bracing weather that our Northern friends have been enjoying. We have had all we want of it. The strawberry blossoms were killed, but -more have come out and taken their places, and we will soon have all the ripe berries we can use. Shipping will commence) in about two weeks. J. S. Crowell and T. J. Kirkpa trick, of Springfield, Ohio, editors of the Farm and Fireside, which has tha largest cir culation of any agricultural paper in the United States, were with us last week. As editors of "the farm and Fireside they have received hundreds of letters from the farmer of the North, making inquiry as to Florida, its productions, its resources and the general health of the State, Messrs. Crowell and Kirk pat rick came to Florida to investigate that they might answer these inquiries intel ligently, and make no exaggerations either one way or the other. They were taken through oor orange groves, pear and peach orchards and strawberry farms, and were well pleased with all they saw. The letters received by them show a growing interest in Florida, by the bone and sinew of the nation the farmers. It speaks well for any journal that its editors make a personal investi gation before laying it before their read ers. Our merchants say that business is in creasing, and are pleased in consequence. At the store of M. D. Steele the other day, there was on exhibition a turnip. raised in Florida sand, that weighed nine and three-quarter pounds. It was raised by Mr. Keith, who lives a few miles north of here. The Interlachen Shipping tympany has shipped several crates of cauliflower to New York. It was raised by Mr. George Casewell. Among the arrivals at Hotel Inter lachen are J. 8. Crowell, T. J. Kirkpat rick, W. R. Linn. E. S. Kelly, John C Barnett, Springfield, Ohio; F. Ilopkin- son, Gainesville; R. L. Purnen, Phila delphia; T. A. Hill and wife, Miss M. O. Hill, Miss N. O. Hill. Boston; Mrs. H. Fleictchman and daughter. New York. The indications are for a good hotel season this spring. Large sales of real estate have been mails by Mr. Robert Long the past week. An increase of nearly 1,000 per cent. in the number of boxes of oranges shipped from here this year over last, is the estimate of those who are able to judge. II. O. AROUND KEUKA. Corrcrvontlenc at the Palatka JVncs. . Kr.l'KA, January 28. Dr. Miller, from Pennsylvania, is here visiting T. L Miller, south of town, lie is favorably impressed with Florida. Dr. Byington, of Chatsworth, Illinois, arrived on the fast mail the other day. lie has an enviable reputation, and is considered one of the leading practition ers in Central Illinois. Our peach orchards are in foil bloom that is, the Peen-toes. The Honeys have not yet bloomed. The cold wave left no unpleasant im pressions on our high land. We are at ways favored, and there ia no place in Florida more free from injurious frost than West Putnam. Frank Hill, Esq.. wife and two sisters spent last week ac the Keuka House. They have already visited several points in this and in Orange County, and will shortly take a trip to Indian River. They are very pleasant people, and our folks wish them an abundance of pleasure while in our State, A very large breadth of land has been planted to cassava. It is destined to be the most profitable crop grown. We have quite a number of people from the North visiting us, and more on the way. Mr. Duzen, from California, William II. Nichols, of Ashtabula, Ohio; A. J. Morris and Stephen Wood hull, of Bon Homme County, Dakota, and A. C. West lake, of Morristown, N. J., are in town and vicinity. Hon. Peter Germond spent a couple, of days with Capt. A. J. Beach, and now wants to make anothercrange grove. Joseph F. Reid, our handsome post master, went to PaT-uka on Wednesday to purchase a large jck for his growing trade. Etoniah Scbcb. I Written tor th Vakttka Aran, I SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY. Insect Pests The annual loss caused by insects in the United States is esti mated at about 1.50,000,000, that on cot ton alone hein f 15,000,000. The insects increase with the advance of civilization on account, doubtless of the greater abundance of .the food furn ished them. Every vegetable pro duct and every variety of fruit and flowers are attended by special parasites, each of which thrives on its respective food-plant. The World to Other Senses. While considering it doubtful whether ants or bees can hear, Sir John Lubbock believes it to be quite possible that they may hear sounds so shrill as to make no impression on the human ear. A like fact may be true of their perception of col ors. To insects the world may be full of music we cannot hear, colors we can not see, an3 sensations we cannot feel. From seventy-five to eighty per cent, of the earth tremors observed in Tokio, according to Prof. Milne, may be ac counted for on the supposition that they have been produced either by local or distant winds. The anly connection be tween earth tremors and earthqnakes in Central Japan is that they are both more frequent about the same season. At a late meeting of the Astronomical Society of France, CoL Laussedat ex hibited a curious binocular glass con structed in 1681 for Louis XIV by Father Seraphim. The huge instrument com prises three boxes which slide into each other, the total length, when extended, being about ten feet. The bones of animals vere used as skates and sledge-runners in prehistoric Europe, and it seems they are still so employed in Northern Germany. The sledges consist of a board resting on the bones of a liorse, and the skates have for runner the lower jaw-bones of cattle. A hitherto uncharted island, two mile long, is reported to exist in latitude 8 15' sooth, longitude 130 39" east, Mastodos Gwavtkcs. Some thirty species of mastodon, the great fossil mammal quit closely allied to the ele phant, have been described, their bones having been found in recent geological deoosits of all quarters of the globe except Africa. - The best known apecies is the North American mastodon (J Giant eu), of which fragments are frequently dis interred in the different parts of the United States. A few remains had been discovered as early as 1703, though nothing like a complete skeleton was obtained until 1S01. The most . perfect skeleton now known was discovered at Salisbury Mills near Newberg, N. Y., in 1877, and is now mounted in the American Museum of Natural History, New York City. By the side of this specimen will soon be placed the skeleton of Barnum's great Asiatic elephant, killed at the late tire, and in the near future a good example of the African elephant will make the third figure in a notable group. Com. pared with the mastodon, the elephant hows a greater height and shorter body, together with many other differences. Highway Postal Locomotives. In the south of France the government postal service is supplement! by the wagon post' of private contractors. who employ many hundred horses in conveying small parcels -from town to town, even along the railway lines. This business has become so extensive that several road locomotives have been or dered for it, and are proving very satis factory. Two of these machines are run ning between towns seventy miles apart, each making the trip one way nightly, at a speed of eight miles an hour. Part of the road is very hilly, with long gra dients up to as much as one in eleven. The locomotive, with coal and water, weighs fifteen tons, and the loaded wagon from seven to ten tons, making the average weight of the train about twenty-three tons. At 173 pounds pres sure the engines give about twelve horse power, and with fair roads use about half a ton of fuel for the round trip of 140 miles. These engines have been running over six months without interruption. Portions of the Andes seem to be sink ing, the altitude of Quito having dimin ished seventy-six feet in 122 years, and that of another peak 218 feet. A crater has sunk 425 feet in twenty-five years. Geological Akchitectcre. A cu rious effect of the wear and tear to which the earth's crust is ever being subjected, is exhibited in the singularly cappl pin nacles existing on the South Riv-r in the Wahsatch Mount .ins. There are hun dreds of these slender 'pillars, ranging in height from f rty to our hundred feet, most of the a crowned by larsre caps of stone. They are not works of human art, as miht almost be imag ined, but are the memorial monuments of the once rounded lulls, from which they have been cut by the action of air and water. These pinnacles alone re main of some square miles of solid rock. which has been washed away to a depth of four hundred feet. The greater hard, ness of the surface has caused it to re sist erosion more than the underlying rock, thus leaving the huge stone caj perched high in air on the points of the thin columns. At one point, while this carving process has been going on, a thin wall of rock was penetrated, leaving a lofty natural bridge or arch, which adds to the picturesqueness of a remarkable landscape. Vacceatiox asd A xn-Vaccina Tiosf. Statistics are against the few persons who insist that vaccination is useless and unnecessary. A compulsory vacci nation law had entirely driven out small pox from Zurich, so that not a case oc curred in 1S2. The law was repealed in 1883, and in every 1,000 deaths that year two were caused by small pox; in 1884, there were three; in 1885, seven teen; and in the first quarter of 1S86, eighty-five. In England the deaths from this disease in 1838-1842 were 57.2 per 100,000 living; but in the five years 1880 1884 the death rate was only 6.5 per 100,000. Vaccination has not only vastly reduced the number of victims directly but seems to have had an indirect influ ence in rendering the offspring of vac cinated parents less liable to the disease, The Greenwood mines, of Michoacan, Mexico, have yielded sixty nuggets of native silver, weighing from one to fifty and one-half pounds. The largest, which is almost pure silver, is one of the most remarkable ever found, and is said to have been twelve pounds heavier in its original state. AFlorlds Xattc Organ. Sanford Journal. There was unloaded on Fridar the only fl.000 organ ever shipped to any church in South Florin. The instru ment is to be used in the Presbyterian Church of our city, and is now being put in position by 'the manufacturer so as to be in readiness for Sunday i aer vice. The organ is home made, i. e.. Florida work, the factory being located at Ply mouth, three miles from Apopka, an Or ange County institution. Mr. W. E. Greenwood is the proprietor. The organ w mue feet wuie, seven feet deep and fifteen feet high, with power Biilticient for a very large building. The front or displayed pipes of the instrument are all sounding pipes, not dnmmies, and fin ished in shellac, w .th case of hard na tive wood, all be.tutifully decorated in gold and colors. There are but th.ee of these organs in the State, two oth.rs being in use in Jacksonville. Tin se organs are rpoken of as being exceedingly tine instruments, and Mr. John Parser, the accomplished organist of the Presbyterian Church, will have the honor and pleasure of ma nipulating the . keys on Sunday next of the finest church "musical instrument in Florida, and the first organ ever nianu factured in the State. s The English Walnut ia Florida. Fort Meyers Ureas. In reply to the inquiry of E. J. S., we can state that the English walnut tree grows well in our State, and we see no reason why it should not be made a ourctoof profitable income. Three or four years ago the Tallahassee Floridian noticed aome trees in the capital city: 'Among the varied growth in the inter esting grounds of the City Hotel, of Tal lahassee, are the fine English walnut trees, the soil seeming to suit them as well as it does the thrifty orange and lemon trees, liana nan, et-x. which con tend for space in that favored spot a luxuriant, perennial garden. As the home raisea liana nan grace the desserts of the hotel, so mar the product of the Northern trees, and ""twixt the walnut and wine" what the rest? One of the trees is almost twenty feet high and ten inches in diameter, being only six vears old. If some trees grow, many may. and so English walnut as well, as black walnuts are to be counted amoving the products of the hill country. But if the fathers do not plant, their children mar not gather. An Irritable Xayer. Philadelphia Ttaaea.
