Address, THE NEWS, Palatka, Flokida, PALATKA. FLA.. FEB. 10, 1888. THEY AEE C0MIN&. The negotiations that have been going on for some time between the Gala Week Committee and the Florida Southern Railway have resulted in a contract by which it is agreed the champion oars men, Messrs. Teemer, Ilamm and Mc Kay, Bhall row two matches on the St. Johns River in front of Palatka. The days fiied for this important event in the history of American sports are Wed neslay and Thursday of next week. In order to accommodate the pro gramme to these two events some changes were necessarily made, the chief of which is that the third class ia dropped from the programme of yacht races and, we understand, the rifle team contests will be abandoned. The change in the programme the engagement of the three world-renowned scullers will be known all over the peninsula of Florida before to-morrow night, in every city and town and especially in every hotel where tourists congregate. Thousands of posters and dodgers will convey the information that the second series of contests will come off on the waters of Palatka, one of the great railroad centers of the State, a point that can be reached in a few hours from all prominent towns of Florida from Okeechobee to the Georgia line. The result will be an influx of visitors here next week beyond anything that could be drawn here by the other feat ures of the programme. The interest in the contests of skill, judgment and mus cle between these trained athletes is widespread as well as healthy. It is cal culated to draw thousands to Florida and Palatka's happy situation will make this the favorite point at which to ob serve the race. Our friends at Lake Weir will suffer nothing by the contests here, for the ap atite for such sport grows by what it feeds upon. The three oarsmen have expressed a desire to row ujion the waters in front of Palatka. In their view it is as fine a body of water for the purpose as they ever saw. We shall be glad to welcome them and hope that when they row here our docks will be black with spectators and all the water except that reserved for the contestants be alive with boats. L4TLD VS. COTTON SEED OIL. 1 he discussion as to cotton seed oil and lard before the Senate Committee on Agriculture is something well worth fol lowing. W e have seen many editorials in our Southern exchanges on the subject, most of wliich come gallantly to the res cue of the vegetable oil. These editorials are generally written with more zeal than judgment. Cotton seed oil is comparatively a new thing. We do not know all the uses of which it is capable in the arts and in do- uieBiic economy, vvnat is Known as cotton seed oil is not a simple product, it combines several oils, one or perhaps more bland essential oils, and others of a heavier nature, which are easily precipi tated under the influence of cold. The writer is not competent to go into the nature of these component parts of cot ton seed oil. Perhaps some of these edi torial knights that are so ready to break a lance in defence of cotton seed oil knov more. But there are some facts worthy to be borne in mind. The ladies God bless them prevail in matters affecting the table. There was an attempt made to introduce cotton seed oil as a substitute for lard several years ago. Medical and scienunc autnoruies united m its ap proval but the ladies did not like the taste it gave their food and that was the last of it. It is now used to adulterate lard. ibis is a case of adulterating a baser witli a better material. But the taste of the cotton seed oil, if in any proportion. can be detected as a far-away suggestion or unseed oil. mi mere is no tapeworm concealed in the greenish limpid oil extracted from the I cotton seed. Trichinea do not disport i in all the unsophisticated exuberance of j infantile spirits in the new oleaginous j vegetable product. Who uses hog lard may be introducing to his vitals one of the most troublesome guests known to medical science, or he may be putting himself in danger of a torture equal to that of the rack. His only security is in having the lard heated above a certain degree of temjierature. To be sure these dangers lurk mostly in the flesh of the hog but they may get into the lard. Let us then scorn the admixture of the pure and wholesome vegetable oil of the South with the base born and baser fed hog grease of the North. Let our scientists labor to remove from the cot ton seed oil that component part which lends to the frying pan a suggestion of the paint shop. It can be done. It must be done. Then will the gentler sex, whose intuitions are so often better than manly reasoning, become reconciled to the doughnut which emerges brown as a pecan nut from the bath of hot oil or the pan cake which owes its consistency and toothsoineness to the same source. No stultifying alliance with the swill pens of Chicago and Kansas City! ' The product of Southern cotton fields pos sesses the purity that is symbolized by the whiteness of the freshly opened cotton boll. It contains ho disgusting animals waiting for transportation into mar's stomach, there to grow into adult and vigorous parasitehood. It may suggest, when used " without sufficient re fining, that the food is flavored with varnish, but science can elim inate that particular flavor, for science is all powerful, but it cannot prevent Chicago pork packers from converting measly pork into lard or, as one witness tastified before the committee, from throwing heads, intestines and all into the rendering vats tn til the refiners those who really refine extract from every one hundred tierces of lard one tierce of black, muddy sediment, "black as your coat." Let your imagination, reader, dwell for a few minutes on that one-hundredth part of sentiment, "black as your coat." Then let a cry arise loud enough to be heard in the markets of the world, for a really palatable substitute for Chicago hog's lard. But do not adulterate wholesome cot ton seed oil with that same hog's lard. Mr. Ross's letter, extracts from which we publish elsewhere, shows how rapidly the Macon road is progressing hither ward. Before next fall we shall be pub lishing the time card of the Georgia Southern and Florida road in our col umns. Next winter tourists fresh from the snowy fields of the North will alight from the sleeper in the streets of Pa latka. Senator Pasco draws a fine but very just distinction when he says that the President does not make an issue in his message on the tariff, he simply points out the condition of affairs and suggests a remedy. In other words he defines an issue already existing, one the Repub lican party must .square its lines to whether it would or not. "It is a con dition, not a theory, that confronts us." , President Cleveland is booked for rooms at the Ponce de Leon for the 22nd of February, it is said. The Washing ton specials which say that he will only sjiend a part of one day in Florida and immediately return North niust be in error. The addition of a cigar factory, or any other factory employing a coupleof hun dred hands, to the industries of Palatka would make a great difference in the amount ( f retail business done here. DAYT0NA. Charged With Stealing Tools-The Daytona Im provemrnt Company Bridge. CorrexpontUiuvof tlie Palatka News. Daytona, February 8. By the mere3t accident, Mr. W. H. Bemis and others, who were robbed a week since of carpenters' tools, were put on track of one J. L. Labas, who proved to be the offender. It appears that after possessing himself of the tools, he went south and engaged as a workman on the hotel ret Ponce Park. Mr. Owen, foreman,- recognizing the implements, sent word to Daytona, hence the arrest. The prisoner was brought here Tuesday and pleaded guilty of stealing tools to more than the value of twenty dollars, in which case Mayor Puckett was com pelled to send him to jail in default of required bail. Labos was locked in Jackson's warehouse for the evening, S. C. Weaver acted as traveling companion to the prisoner, who wiil stop at Enter prise to await action of the court. It is generally supposed that a man steals to keep from work, but this is one of those rare instances where one has purloined instruments for the contin uance of toil. Capt. C. A. Hastings, H. E. Bostwick and J. II. Niver left on the 1:30 train, for a short visit to Charlotte Harbor. The gentlemen are expected to return a week hence. The Daytona Improvement Company, an outgrowth of last Friday's meeting, are taking active measures to secure im mediate improvement in the way of drainage. The officers are as follows: President, James M. Osborn ; Vice Presi dents, Alfred Herdman and Mrs. George H. Clark; Secretary, Prof. M. W. Mar tin. Robert B. Wolesley, of our bank, has bought Fred. S. Goodrich's interest, and will proceed to manage the same on his own account. A company composed of many promi nent citizens has been organized for the purjwse of constructing a bridge across the Halifax at the termination of Fair- view avdnue. It is the intention of said company to begin work immediately and have the bridge in use within two months. Gkraldink, i Written for the Palatka AViw. SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY. Stellar Parallax. In deterining the distances of stars, angular measure ments are made at intervals of six months, the parallax being the appar ent change of position which results from shifting the point of view about 183.000,000 miles, the diameter of the earth's orbit. Even with this immense base line, the direction in which the stars are seen is scarcely altered. The parallax of about a dozen stars, varying between 0.919 sec. and 0.046 sec. has now been determined. The nearest star to us is Alpha Centauri, distant about 20,496.000,000 miles. The average dis tance of first magnitude stars is proba bly several times as great as this. Ten species of North American birds are named by Mr. E. M. Hasbrouck as missing. Of these, two the great auk and the Labrador duck are believed to have liecome extinct, while the follow ing eight, through scarcity or diminu tiveness, were "lost" with the taking of the first specimens, and are now being eagerly sought: The carbonated war bler, blue mountain warbler, small headed warbler, Cuvier's kinglet. Town send's bunting, Brewster's linnet, Bach man's warbler and the Cincinnati war bler. It has long been known that carbonic acid gas produces a sensation of greater warmth on the skin than air of the same temperature. Dr. Goldschneider, of the Berlin Physiological Society, finds the phenomenon to be chiefly due to direct chemical action on the endings of the heat nerves. A prize of 25,000 francs, instituted by the king of the Belgians, is to be awarded in 1893 for the best paper on means for abundantly and cheaply providing large towns, especially Brussels, with the best quality of potable water. Australia has some giant caterpillars. a r . a m m m. air. a. . uuin, or Sydney, mentions one moth larva,bundant during the past season, as being seven inches long, and specimens of larva? of , two other species measure eight inches in length. Electric Power from Coal. Thedi- rect conversion of heat into electric work is a problem that continues to tax the ingenuity of electricians. What seems to be the most promising attempt at solution yet made, is a new thermo magnetic generator and motor devised by M. Menges, of the Hague. like the recent pyro-magnetic dynamo of Edison, it de pends upon the fact that the magnetic metals low their magnetic power when heated. It claims several important ad vantages, however, the chief being that the necessary alterations of heating and cooling are given automatically, and that the cores of the armature coils are relieved from changes of temperature. Experiments have been made in trans planting the beautiful Alpine Edelweiss into the mountains of Bohemia and other places. In its new homes the plant seems to be changing its character, and in the mountains of upper Austria it has become transformed into a new species, bearing red flowers instead of the beautiful ermine-like white blooms, A kind of artificial rabies has been produced in rabbits and birds by injec tions of oil of tansy. This malady was overcome by treatment with chloral, and the experimenter Dr. Brown Se quard reasons from analogy that suit able administrations of this drug would prevent true rabies in man. An automatic chess recorder has been produced by Dr. Wurstemberger, of Zurich. An ingenious electrical ar rangement prints on a strip of pajier the index number and letter of the square from and to which the piec is moved, and moves of the black pieces have a different place on the tape from those of the white. Occulations of stars by the planets are extremely rare, but Dr. A. Berber- ich, of Berlin, believes observations of them would be very important, throw ing light on the extent and density of planetary atmospheres, and in the cases of Mars and Venus affording a means for the determination of parallax and diameter. Considerable differences in the stand ard barometers of the principal Eurojiean observatories have been found bv Mr. F. A. Sundell, of the Scientific Society of Finland. Mathematics axd Arithmetic Like most ordinary mortals, mathema ticians are inclined to shirk dealings with figures. Even Newton, the great master of the most abstruse calculations, could not, we are told, cast up a sum in addition; and the works of M. Stas, said to have never had an equal in ex actitude, have been found to contain an astonishing number of arithmetical 6lips, Prof. Huxley has given the weight of air on a square mile as about 590,129, 971,200 lbs., containing not less than 3,081,870,106 lbs. of carbonic acid, in which is .371,475 tons of carbon. The real quantities, as figured by Mr. Syd ney Lupton, are 59,133,431,808 lbs. of air, 31,464,899 lbs. of carbonic acid, and 375,- 227 tons of carbon. Another writer has proven the water under a west- westerly equatorial current to be twelve percent, lighter than under an easterly equatorial current, this false result be ing based on an arithmetical error. Carry the Babies Right. A French physician, Dr. Feltz, mentions a curious apparent cause of left handedness. One child in a certain family was left-handed and a second appeared to be so at the age of one year. It was then learned that the mother always carried her children on her left arm. She was ad vised to change, and, held on her other arm, the infant, having its right hand free to grasp objects, soon became right-handed. A museum of religions ia a novelty of the French metropolis. A traveler of Lyons, M. Guimet, has long been col lecting altars, priests' robes and other objects relating to religious ceremonies; and these have been presented to Paris on condition that a suitable building be provided which has becdone. The mean height of the land al)ove the sea level, according to Mr. John Mur ray, is 2,250 feet; and the mean depth of the ocean is 12,480 feet. Only two per cent, of the sea is included inside a depth of 500 fathoms, while seventy seven per cent lies between 500 and 3,000 fathoms. If the land were filled into the hollows, the sea would roll over the earth's crest to a uniform depth of two miles. A Portrait of Hubert Hums. I was told that it was the hardest kind of thing to feet a portrait of Burns in Scotland at all adequate to the wishes of an admirer. At Edinburgh I was able to buy a photographed picture of Burns at a reception at Lord Monboddo's house. Mr. Richardson has had engraved a re cent portrait of Burns, or rather a re cently found portrait. He sent it over to France to be etched at a cost of 20, and a copy of this he gave me He says that Burns' jiortrait was painted by an artist for some of. Burns' admirers, rather against the artist's will. He expanded Burns' brows. When the engraver came to put this jxirtrait into lines he, knowing Burns, made some changes, and this was the portrait which was published in Burns' first Edinburgh edition. Later on, when Bums' body was dis entombed to lie changed from one vault to another, they measured his skull and found that it was narrower than tho first portrait made it. So another jiortrait was engraved, compounded with these meas urements and the first portrait. They were eked out by a miniature jwinted by the daughter of the original artist,' wha knew Burns also. The result is what Mr. Richardson believes to be the best por trait of Burns, and it is one I have never seen in America. "Gath" in Cincinnati Enquirer. Three Leading Scwspaper Nations. It is easy to understand that the people of the United States, who spend more money for their own education than any other people in tho world, have a greater number of journals, compared with their jtopul&tion. t!vai any other country. In the United f ...les there is pullLJied one paper to every 4,433 inhabitants. The country in which the proportion of newspapers to the population is next greatest is also a country where the peo ple govern tliemselves, and pay great at tention to education. Tlus country ii Switzerland, and it lias one journal to every 5.073 people. The next country in what may be called newspaper rank iDenmark, which has a small population and free schools. There is one newspaper to every C,02'3 people. Youth's Companion. Explosion of Gn Cotton, Some curious results produced by ex ploding marked blocks of gun cotton on flat plates of wrought iron have been described by Mr. C E. Monroe. The gun cotton blocks were placed with the let tered side down, and the letters stamped .in relief appeared in relief on the iron after explosion, while, on the other hand, the letters depressed .in the gun cotton were also depressed on the iron plate, jukansaw Traveler.
