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,

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.

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

It is easy to understand that the people

other people in tho world, have a greater

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,
