Now "pu up or shut up. GALA WEEK BALL. ILATKTS SOCIETY AT THE DANCE The Or in City Guards and their Military Guests Acquit Themselves Handsome ly 1hat a News Reporter Saw. The grand military ball last, night at the Guards' Armory was a grand suc cess. The leading lights of Palatka's best society were out in large numbers, and the armory ball inclosed a bright and animated scene. The grand march at about 9 o'clock was participated in by about fifty couples, and they gave the onlooker a most favorable impression of Palatka's fair daughters as they moved around the room, shedding grace and beauty at every step and fairly making the head of the gazer dizzy with mingled emotions of delight and admiration. The uniforms of the Gainesville and Gem City Guards here and there dotted the line of the gaily marching revellers, and merrily as a wedding bell the gay march went on till it broke up for the lancers. Many charming faces and forms were to be seen,but The Palatka Daily News has no "Jenkins" on its staff, and al though each member is nesthetic in his tastes, our columns cannot describe in detail each feature of the beauties of the city. Palatka, however, acknowledges no superior and but few equals in this regard. The management of the ball was placed br the executive committee of the Gala Week in the hands of Mr. C. J Joseph, and that gentleman is to be congratulated u(Mn his success. As master of ceremoniVs last night, Mr. Jo seph was equally successful. The recention committee consisted of Major W. P. Couper, Captain R. W. Da vis, Mr. S. J. Kennerly and Mr. C. F. Eaton. The floor committee were Mr. S. D. Lowry, Mr. J. H. Haughton, Mr. I White and Mr. E. M. McLaury.

Last evening Adelaide Randall, the talented American prima donna, with ner operatic troupe appeared once more before the citizens of Palatka at Fry's Opera House, in the amusing opera "Princess of Trebizonde," Offenbach's famous comedy. Miss Randall fasci nated her audience, and time and again elicited warm applause from all who were so fortunate as to be present and hear her beautiful voice in the rendition of the role of "Prince Raphael." Some enthusiastic member of the audience placed a bouquet on th stage upon her first appearance, which she received in the most gracious ma'iuer. .Miss Uertie rioyt, as "Zanetta, pre sented her part in an exceedingly pleas ing way, and in fact all ihat was said of- the different member of this company in our last issue might well be repeated here with good advantage. Suffice it to say that they all did veil, and they leave a deep impression upon the minds of Palatka's theatre-going people of their ability as actors and actresses. Wekka and Fruitland Peninsula.

The Brick Business a Succsss Another Ctaar anufactorf Siubt Paints. Correwonfence of tht PaXafka JVirun. Sacble, February 13. Sauble is on deck, Messrs. gentlemen of The Palatka News. Here the long expected, much experimented on, clay brick business has become a success. The bricks are there, and the great Florida show car running v North and South has had Sauble brick, not in Mr. Webb's, hat, but rolling along in said car with all sorts of other Florida curi-J ous things. Mr. Moses' partner in this business will build a brick house soon out of his own brick. Your correspondent has seen them handled, and knows there are as good brick in Sauble as can be found North, South, East or West Then Mr. Ekey and son are aiding Mr. Motes with a living interest iu the same business. So much for brick, a great desideratum in Florida. And this same Mr. Moses being a cigar manufacturer proposes to build a brick cigar manufactory. So we in Putnam County are to have two tobacco factor ies in the near future, the Cuban factory and the Sauble establishment. So mote it be and more profit to them "all and sundry," as the legal fraternity are wont to say. Apropos of tobacco there is a large amount of land out here in Sauble being prepared for tobacco growing. And if not, why not, grow plenty of tobacco in Florida? Come gentlemen farmers, stir your stumps, and grow the weed all over the State, as you can do the thing. Put your hand and shoulder to the wheel and push the weed to success. . We were delighted to see Mr. Stew art, of railroad fame, grubbing a piece of palmetto land, as we rushed toward the Sauble depot. Unlike Micawber "wait ing for something to turn up," tbisgentl man just at present having nothing else to do began turning the soil preparatory to putting out an orange grove. Good boy, and may his shadow never be less, and may other young men be there to sec and imitate his noble example. Well, things are moving in this coun try, which should be called North Pa- latica, oemg oniv a dime s worth of a ride from the Gem of the St. Johns. Then the "river, viewed from the dwelling of Mr. Sauble, the daddy of the place, is most delightful. Here the river craft of all descriptions are seen gliding and racing up and down the river, and a noble school teacher may be seen from the Sauble landing pulling her way to or from school in the distance Sometimes she is in luck and has i nice bland gentleman to do her rowing, but not always, as business calls him away. We had a moment to spare as the train came rushing along and so called at Sau ble school house, where Miss Mattie Sauble has an excellent though small school. Then we had some business with Mr. Whiten, whose brick house speaks volu nines for the brick business of the place. And this people has a gentleman who can lay brick with any man in the county in speed or durableness another Sauble well known in Palatka. Thia place is getting to be quite truck gardening place. Acres and acres are planted with all sorts of vegetables. the market in Palatka furnishing the stimulus for this business. Voyaoek. IMTERLACHIN. Waiting far the Train A Montreal Editor Invests. Prepared for Strawberries. Corrtvmaence of the Palatka Kent. Interlachen. February 13, The delegates to the conference have left us. and things seem quiet. It was a good natured lot of people, who waited for the "fast mail" for seven and three- quarters hours after it was due. It is an enterprising railroad that delays mail train over seven hours for a boat race. . The delegates have left ns and have gone with pleasant remembrances of Interlachen. We treat everybody just right out here, and every one goes away satisfied. . Several sales ot land have- been made the past week, one of which was the sale of the Stover place to Rev. W. D. Brown, our new pastor, who was in stalled last Friday. Dr. D. K. Pearson, a Chicago million aire, his wife and his sister-in-law, Miss Chapin, are spending a few weeks at Hotel Interlachen. M. A. Foley, editor of the Journal of Commerce, of Montreal, has been spend ing a few days at Hotel Interlachen. He has made several purchases of real tate norm ot town. Mr. r oley lert yes terday for Montreal, but will return next month accompanied by his wife. A meeting of the Board of Trade called for to-night, when important business will be transacted. The Interlachen Shipping Company is well prepared for the strawberry crop, a car load of crates bavins arrived last week. Mr. C. W. Castle has left for his home in Chicago. Miss Berta Tauszky, of New York, is spending the winter at the Hotel Inter lachen. v e are glad to welcome back to In terlachen, our fellow-citizen Mr. W. Free born. We had begun to think that he had been frozen up in the blizzards that have been coursing through the North this winter here. ' Among the arrivals at Hotel Inter lachen, we notice Rev.

Mr. Hayes will be remembered as the gentleman who would not believe that the Whig party was dead until he had its remains res urrected and examined. AROUND OKEECHOBEE. Rain A Sloppy Country Now Happy Inhabitants. What Is Dolus, Injuns. From fMir .9ptoJ CirrepundetU. Big Prairie, ) West Bask Okeechobee, -February 8, 1888. ) Well, its rain,- rain, rain, and in this level terrace of the Okeechobee country much rain means sloppy trav eling. Just think of it, from 4 a. m. to abcut that time p. m. in water ankle deep, with the ceaseless patter, patter of your horse's hoof under you. ' In dry times the big prairie with its level surface spotted here and there with its live oak hammock islands of all areas from an acre to hundreds of acres, is really a beautiful sight with its herds upon herds of fat cattle grazing in view, and makes one wish to be a stock man, btiil it must be a dreary life to the mind above a cow whip, yet I doubt if a more con tented people live than the lonely denizens of this very tliinly set tled section, with their habitations miles apart from each other. The doctor, preacher and teacher only known of by tradition; a yearly visit to some town or annual camp meeting is a green spot in their memories. A more open hearted people, full of genuine sympathies for the distress of others never existed. Let one get seriously ill and they gather to minister to the comforts or last offices of the sick one, and it is really a mystery where so many come from on such oc casions. When you ride up to their houses or cabbage tents, it is "Light mister and bitch your horse," and mas ter and mistress of the house comes out to welcome you, insists on taking your "creeter" whila two or three Jothers are minding off the dogs that seem anxious to taste of you. You are led into the house and duly seated in a fresh wiped chair, and should you be a stranger you are hospitably inquired into, who you are found out, and all of a sudden this query conies up, "But mister you baint been to dinner have you?" if you "haint' their best is placed before you with many apologies, about being out of flour, etc generally some cold venison or turkey or trout garnished by a big platter of "taters," some corn bread, and best of all, plenty of coffe. When you rise from your seat your conscience begins to reproach you for breeding a famine on the place by eating so much, and you solace yourself by admitting that you were hungry. Yet you were welcome, and they do their best to keep you a few days, hunts and fishing sprees are pro posed and this is the country for either most emphatically. I've only one Lint to give the visitor, and that is, if he is a medical man, or has ever wandered through the intricate mys teries of an old time medical almanac, he must "tell it not in Gath." . If he lets it out the madam promptly marshals up her young ones that ever had a com plaint, from a measly worm or two to a "numony," and she'll exhaust three or four pipes of tobacco before she lets him off. The doctor-man's best plan is to get out his pill bag, and lay out something for their future distresses, and he's the best man living, directly. This section of country is embraced in what is known as the lower drainage terrace of wet lands, or rather lands sub ject to too much water in wet times, and when the new outlets from Iake Okeechobee to the Gulf are opened, this whole country will be reclaimed, and millions of acres of pine lands placed on the market. A new outlet or canal is to be cut in a southeasterly direction from Lake Hick pochee, to meet another canal that is to be cut in a southerly course from the south cove of Lake Okeechobee, the cut then to run southerly on the west border of a virtually unknown section of South Florida, and one that is supposed by some to embrace a large body of very fine lands now known as the Royal Palm Hammock the hunter's and wild man's paradise; the southern outlet of the canal will be the Thousand Islands. I predict a rush to that section by that class who are always wanting to push to the frontier. There are yet here in South Florida some triltal remnants of the Seminoles, perhaps in the total some 300, but their intercourse with the whites is of the most friendly nature. Every once and a while a few of them visit the nearest towns Fort Myers or Ogden with dressed skins and plumes and get their needed supplies of ammu nition, etc. They are living in a very primitive way; palm huts and a few cook pots serve for living purposes, the women do:ng all the labor while the males do the hunting and fishiDg, and gorging and stuffing from the family cook pot, which generally contains a "what is it" mess of something to eat. For a lump of downright laziness I com mend the pure Indian. A question arises to the frontier mind down here can the Indian collect the scalp bounties on bear, wolves, etc? If so, his fortune's made, and I want to be an Indian forthwithly, yaller legs and all. Does it ever occur to tou what a privilege it is to be an Indian?" No wran gles with your laundry maid, you sim ply put on your duds and they stay there till they mortify and fall off. Of course, the odor is O K, if you're injun. W. The Trick of the Trade. Milwakee Sentinel. An English capitalist has been to Cali fornia and is surprised. "Why, sir," he says, "out in California everybody ap pears to be on an fequalitv. "The com mon gambler and the millionaire grasp each other by the hand." That's all right they are generally engaged in the same line of business. HARDWARE.

An actor was playing in a farce in which it was necessary for him to use a large dough nose. One night when he got to the theater he found no flour, and he sent the boy out for some. Back came the boy, the nose was made and whipped on. Presently, to the horror of the actor, the nose began to swell, until at length in the midst of an impor tant passage, it burst and fell to the ground. It had been made of self raising flour, and the heat of the actor's face had accomplished the catastrophe.
