Address, THE T.EWS, Palatka, Florida. PALATKA. FLA., FEB. 12, 1888. The country will hear with pleasure that some of the New York bucket shops have been raided. They are more cor rupting in their influence than keno dens. Tampa is to have a new hotel. W. N. Conoley, it is announced, as a represen tative of II. B. Plant, has closed negoti ations for a ten acre tract on which to build a grand hotel. It is comforting to see a disposition to investigate alleged postal service irregu larities. Congress may find that there are many districts of the country that "could be benefitted by an increase in the number and certainty of the daily mails. Gadsden County is to be congratulated on the accession of thirty-five Alsatian immigrants who are experienced in the raising of tobacco and the promise of more. It is not alone that a body of experienced tobacco raisers lias been added to her farming population but beside these immigrants come from a class the most desirable possible' hard working, steady and economical, they are a benefit to any land they adopt as a home. . The sons of New England are not clannish but they . reverence the land of tbeir birth and are proud of the history of that hardy race from which they have sprung. The tendency toward celebrat ing anniversaries and organizing institu tions in commemoration of the earlier history of. this country is growing and jejHanuestatiori of it is in the direction of organizing societies among the immi grants from New England in other States. A meeting will be hald in Jack sonville on Washington's Birthday to or ganize such a society in this State. The call will lie found in another column. The Jacksonville, Tampa and Key West Icailway Company with the liber ality which characterizes that corpora tion has made a cash contribution of $200 to the Gala Week fund, this in ad dition to reducing the rates for three days to half fare. This present to the jwople of Falatka to aid them in their effort to make the city especially attrac tive for three days is appreciated by our citizens. Such an act ion is one which goes far toward establishing relations of cordial friendship between the business men of the city benefitted and the cor poration which shows such generosity. In another column will be found notes of the mortgage filed in Putnam and other counties of Florida and Georgia tlirough which its line will run by .the Georgia Southern and Florida Railroad Company. This is the mortgage on which the bonds are based for the com pletion of the road. We draw attention to it only as another evidence that the road is to be pushed through to Palatka. It will be noticed that the distance from Macon to Palatka is stated at 200 miles, more or less. The bonds are desirable investments, drawing six per cent, in , terest for a long term of years a good thing for those who wish to put money where it will produce a sure and steady income. A traveler just arrived from the North reports a deplorable lack of proper transportation facilities over what is known as the Atlantic Coast Line. Fif teen passengers, he says, came through to Jacksonville on the day coaches, changing four times between New York and Jacksonville, and no effort was made to supply them with Bleeping car accommodations. The restaurants on that portion of the route north of Charleston furnish excellent meals, but of the railroad restaurants he tried at Savannah the least said the better. Un clean, half-cooked food, served in a care less and slouchy manner by indifferent waiters is not what the traveling public is justly entitled to for the money it pays. . SENATORIAL IN TERFEEENCE. The Times- Union's Washington corres pondent in commenting on the probable success of Mr. Dougherty iu securing the passage of his Indian War Claim bill a few days ago referred darkly to the possibility of "Senatorial influence" threatening to interfere with its passage. Unexplained this implicates both of Florida's Senators, and indicates a con dition of dissension anion u the members of the Florida delegation which none could more earnestly deprecate than those gentlemen themselves. The facts eem to be that Mr. Davidson introduced the bill, and that Mr. Dougherty is press ing it with commendable energy and industry. If there is any ground for the insinua tion of the Timcs-Uriion that Senators and Representatives are playing at cross purposes, and that while the Represen tatives are doing their utmost in behalf of the bill, the Senators are seeking its defeat This seems hardly possible. The amount of relief which the Treasury of the State would receive if the bill is passed should be enough to enlist in its active support all the energy and zeal of the entire delegation. Again, we say, such a state of things as is insinuated by the Times-Union is scarcely possible; but it behooves our Senators to take notice of the matter themselves, and not let the impression go abroad that there is dissension between tliem and our Rep resentatives, especially on so important a subject as the Indian War Claim bilL A Variation. Omaha World. When you see a red-noned politician use your eyes jowl 'you will see a dark horse. Dangers of Thought. Key West Equator.

Our Vegablt and Flower Gardens A Medicinal Private Treasure. BY DR. A.SCHAfrKAMlK. PALATKA, rXA. XIX. THE ROSE CXSTISUED. The rose yields but little to the mass of vegetable materials made subservient to the uses of man. The leaves of the red rose are slightly laxative, astringent and tonic, but are used chiefly in infu sions as a vehicle for administration of cathartic medicines. Rose water is pro duced by the distillation of the flowers of various species. The "attar of roses" is a volatile oil, existing in very minute quantities in rose leaves, is obtained by distillation and sold at high prices as a perfume. The l-nt rose water and rose oil is made in Turkey. About fifteen miles to the northwest of Adrianople is a district in the vicinity of Kisanfik, from where the most and best is im ported. There are 14 1 villages which have employed in the production of the oil of roses 2,500 stills. The copper stills which are 'used there, contained 120 quarts each, and ate filled with sixty pounds of ro.se leaves and fifteen pounds of water. As one rose bush gives only one and a half pounds of rose leaves, they have to pick the roses of one hun dred thousand busbes for one distillery. From one hundred pounds of rose leaves it is possible to gain one-half ot an ounce of oil. Those leaves which are crushed in ua iron mortar become black perfumed beads. Besides the oil and water, syrup of roses, honey of roses, vinegar of roses may be obtained. As a house remedy the leaves and hips of roses are generally ;used. If you will collect in the forenoon the leaves of roses well developed, you may gain an excellent flour by staining the leaves of one hundred roses, to which the yellow of two eggs, water and wheat flour should be added. All those ingredients have to be mixed very well, and then well and liard baked. After baking is done the mixture must be powdered finely. Take one or t wo tablespoonfu's of this powder, stir it very well with milk, boil it by a soft .fire,' add to it sugar and cinnamon and you will have a nap which is hisrhlv recom mendtd as a good nutritive and corrobo rative for old and feeble people. The pulp of the fruit of the wild rose is an excellent nutritive, slightly refrigerant and astringent, and forms the conserve of hips. A decoction of the hips is a good specific in spasm of the stomach. The honey of roses is a good detersive remedy in cases of abscesses in the mouth if used as a gargle or as a wash, while the vinegar of roses applied to the forehead cures headache. Having said all in regard to the medicinal virtues of the rose, we now proceed to poetry and conclude with its meaning in history. The love of flowers dates back to the oldest time, and was felt by the first peo ple of the earth. The hopes and desires of all were a paradise, and every one's paradise was a beautiful garden of ever lasting youth and bloom, an eternal liv ing, loving and resting among flowers; flowers in the hair, flowers in the bosom, flowers a puffed pillows for elysian slumber. The first love makes known its desires and hopes by a bouquet of flowers, husband and wife like to brighten and lieautify their sweet home with their harmless, magnificence. On the neat little work-table of the mistress of the house emitters a pretty rose tree or some other plants and around the picture of the beloved parents, sister and brother creeps a wreath of ever green with its bright and lovely eyes. Everywhere you will find people anx ious to have their garden nicely decor ated with flowers, at every festivity you will find flowers to correspond and they are strewed as a token of friendship and love over the graves of the departed. And even foreign specimens are raised in greenhouses. But so the culture of flowers is an agreeable occupation, still it causes the diligent guardian and ob server pain and sorrow. How the thought must trouble him, when he sees that he will only have the pleasure of looking at the flowers for a few hours for whose growth and raising he has taken so much pains? Why must a thing be taken away from us, when it has reached its perfection? Well, some wither, others bloom, there never passes a day but a new flower conies to view. We are still luckier than our Northern friends for even in the depth of the Northern winter we are surrounded by flowers of those plants, which please us the most. There are a great many, but the prize has been awarded to but one as queen of the beautiful clxildren of Flora and that is the rose. In every moment of its short life though ;it may bud, be at the height of jerf ection, die or fall off leaf by leaf, we will find a certain like ness in it to ourselves. When in the even ing its head droops it resembles a deeply thinking man and awakens in his soul a thousand new and dark visions. He who leads a happy life notices in the day time in testacy the pureness of its forms, the brightness of its colors, the luxury of its structure, intoxi cates himself in its odor, and every thing shows him his perfect happi ness. When the winter is passed every one looks forward full of expectation, especially in the North for the first rose, for the happiest time is the time when roses bloom, for roses signify in their natural sense the delights of love while in their spiritual sense kthey correspond with the delights of the truth of wis dom. The wild roses may be said to be the parent of nearly all our beautiful gar den varieties inasmuch as they furnish the stock upon which those favorite ex otics may be crafted or budded: Some wi t h da rk lea ves Contrast their flowers of pure unsullied wh Others like velvet rubes of royal state. Of richest crimson, while in fine moss Enshrined and craillod the most lovely wear The hues of youthful beauty's glowing cheek. But beauty iu vain would mount a heartless throne Her right Divine power is given by love alone." "Bolly" Lewis 111. National Hotel Reporter.

Vorresixntdence of the Palatka News. ISTEKLACHEK, February 8. The State Conference of the Congre gational Church for the State of Florida, closed its labors yesterday evening, af ter two days of very interesting meet ings. To-day Rev. W. D. Brown was in stalled pastor of the First Congrega tional Church of Interlat hen. The ex amination was conducted by Dr. Hooker, of Winter Park. The sermon was by RiV. A. Dunning, D. D., of Boston.

The guests of Hotel Lagonda were treated to-day to most delicious straw berries which were appreciated highly. KISSING BECOMING UNPOPULAR. The Women Growing Sensible and the Car Con ductors Happy. New York Mail and Express. "Kissing is not so popular "among women generally as it was a decade ago," said a lady to a Mail and Express reporter. 'How is the custom as between the sezes?" "I think it is about the same as it has been for half a century. If anything, women and especially girls, do not kiss their sweethearts with the readiness that their grandmothers did, and the reason is obvious. Engagements do not always end in marriage these days; they are not as serious as formerly, and any girl with pride does not wish to have a number of old sweethearts bragging of a record of many kisses.- But Iliad reference to the common custom women formerly had of indulging in promis cuous osculation whenever they met or parted from each other. The better ed ucational facilities offered to females of late years has taught them the foolish ness of mere stereotyped kissing. I can remember of the time when two women introduced not fifteen minutes perhaps, kissed each other when they parted. Now it is a rare thing that they indulge in such practices unless they are old friends. I am not sorry that the cus tom is rather unpopular. With all due reference to my sex, there are many among them I would not relish a kiss from, even if they were good friende of mine. There is a limit to all things, and, while I do not believe in straight-faced conventionality, I do think our sex is to be praised for the reforms in that di rection. What a spectacle to see women kissing on the streets and in the lobbies of theaters! Whv, I have seen two women pause to kiss each other in part ing, while the patient conductor of the street car waited several minutes on their actions. The ecstatic kissing fe male these days is lacking in some re spects and rather behind the standard of modern chic and propriety. It is ad missable for relatives to kiss, but not to any extravagant degree, in public. Old women are more prone to expect osculatory tribute than the young, aud that it is chiefly because they were reared during a period when kissing was more popu ar than now. My ad vice to girls is, don't kiss every female you meet, and even among your friends don't be too affectionate in that partic ular. It is a habit, merely, and not a very intellectual one under any circum stances. As to men, do not kiss them unless you are engaged to marry. What we women should reform is street kiss ing, because it is a time consumed, not edifying and the subject often of un pleasant comment. There is a time for the sweet communion of lips, and it is not in highways Tand byways, but far from the vulgar comment of the passing throng." The Rnbber Bustle at Do Land. Orange City Times. There is a set of youths over at De Land that only the old Man him self can equal in pure unadulterated cussedness, when they set their their heads together to have what they call a "little fun." That city has been rather gay the past week with its excur sions, operas and circuses. All of these attractions brought an unusually large crowd together, and at the opef a there the other evening there was simply a jam and a rush, and at this place the young men worked successfully their joke. They armed themselves with sharp tainted ladies' hat pins. With these the rubber fixtures would be punched, and feminine voices could be heard, "What's the mutter with my dress?" and grace fully, but with unusual alacrity, disap pearing from the hall. The joke was not discovered until a big fat woman with no bustle was stuck, and then there was a rush sure enough on tbe part of those fellows getting away from there, the unfortunate one taking a train the next morning on a month's vacation. . quite Right.
