PiLATilA. FUlBlDA. PALATKA. FLA.. FEB. 16, 1888. The South Florida Exposition at San ford opens with every prospect of suc cess. It will doubtless be crowded with visitors as it should be. '':" The International Fisheries Commis sioners completed their labors yesterday, and the treaty was signed last evening. This will dispose of this vexed question until the Senate takes the matter in hand, when, of course, there will be an opportunity for patriots to make a record. What the provisions of the treaty are has not leaked out. To-day will be in many respects a repe tition of yesterday in the Gala Week festivities except that o the yacht races the first class boats will sail. With a fair breeze it will be a beautiful sight and should engage the attention of alL The champion oarsmen will again fly over the course in front of the city. threading the river between the stakes. The gun clubs will again blaze away at the flying "pigeons," killing as many as they can for a record, without draw ing blood. It will be a sweepstakes to day. To-night the fast and furious fun of the boxing matches will be repeated, this time at the Colored Odd Fellows' Hall. The oarsmen were badly hampered yesterday afternoon by the wash from the steamers; some of which got in their way, started ahead of them on their re turn, and otherwise annoyed' them. They earnestly request that all craft keep out of their way to-day, and espe cially that steamers following them shall stop at least one hundred yards from the turning points, and wait.until the scull' era pass them on their return before starting up again, then fall behind and stay there. In other words, they want the water kept as smooth as possible, and do not wish to row through the bob- lery kicked up by the screws or paddles of the Bteamers. This hint should be sufficient. Keep out of the way, gentle men. If you do noc to-day, after this request, you will have hundreds of wit n esses of your discourtesy. There was much remark yesterday among the spec tators as to the amount of interference there was with the scullers bv other craft on the river. THE PEESIDENT COMING. The President and Mrs. Cleveland, we are informed, will leave Washington nest Tuesday and arrive in Jacksonville next Wednesday, the 23d. They will go Thursday morning to St. Augustine and from thence either Thursday night or Friday morning to Rockledge. To go from St. Augustine to Rockledge the President must pass through Palatka, and our citizens will have a chance to xi the Chief Magistrate of the land. It is in order now to prevail upon the Jack sonville, Tampa and Key West Railway managers to delay the train awhile in order that a prop?r reception may be given tho President. We understand that Col. Hart has tendered the President and his party the use of one of his steamers for a trip on the Ocklawaha." The President may be induced to remain over twenty-four hours for the sake of this trip before pro ceeding to Rockledge or on his return. THE KUW USES OF CASSAVA. We have mentioned the valuable re sults of the experiments S. J. Hoggson, President of the Hoggson & Pettis Manufacturing Company, of New Haven, Conn., has made in cassava. Yesterday a string of samples arrived by mail, ac companied by a letter in which Mr. Hoggson says : I mail you a few more specimens of compound this day which, if placed with those already sent will give you a fair idea of the new hard cassava products, which may be made of any color from white to black and when made with proper facilities will rival the best cellu loid or vulcanized India rubber and may lie used largely where neither of the above can be. What I term the soft cassava products range from that which may be folded, sewed, stamped or printed down to that having the consistency of honey, which . may be spread as enamel on woven or pulp fabrics. I had intended to send you a list of the uses in the arts and manufactures to which this new product may be applied, in fact, an article on cassava (Jatropha manikot) from a manufacturer's stand point, but as new uses are almost daily suggesting themselves, it will soon, it would seem, take less space to describe the rjses to which it is not suitable. The article proposed would be a valu able one and would be sure of many readers in the South. " The first lot of samples to which refer ence ia made never reached The Pa latka News oflice. The first of the six sjiecimens before us is translucent and looks like horn. It resists scratching well and is difficult to cut The next specimen is a grayish white, even harder than the first. The others are a reddieh brown, black unpolished, black finely lolished and pink. The demand for celluloid goods is a great and increasing one. Cassava furn ishing a good substitute for the present basis of that valuable article, the culture of it will become very profitable. But it is as a substitute for that costly arti cle, vulcanized rubber, that the new products will be most in demand. This cassava product before us consists of tablets, the edges of which are sharp and clean, sowing its adaptability to many uses in the arts. If it can supplant rub-, her in but a few of the many uses to which the latter is put, it will prove a rery valuable plant for the agriculturist. New uses will be discovered for it every day for the ingenuity of man is turned in this latter end of the Nine teenth Century to the discovery of cheaper substitutes for many substances employed in manufactures. The supply . of rubber in the world is not very large, the gum itself not a cheap material and our readers know how much hard rubber adds to the price of any article of which it forms a part. On the other hand cassava produces abundantly. 'ITEMS OP GtNf?AL INTTF;E3T. Stray Bit of ;od Ileailing lipi-t from the Various 1'xcnangea. Chambersbuig, Pa., has a fire com- pnny that was organized 108 years ago. The most trvinz position a truthful clergyman can lie hi is to be preaching the funeral sermon of a man who tliea ricli and moan. A movement has lieen started for the purchase of the early home of the poet Wliittier and its preservation as a shrine for patriotic Americans. An English firm calls attention to its admirable sunnlv of sermons for melan choly occasions, which they retail for seven pence each. , Special sermons are two ana wx a lieaU. A New Orleans newspaper says that the millions of pickaninnies seen arouud the cotton fields of the south furnish a complete refutation of the theory that the negro race in America is flying out. An eighty ton flat car, which isclaimed to be the largest ever made in this coun try, is being built in Packerton, Pa., and when finished will be used for hauling a lot of iiuichinery from New York to Bethlehem. An Orlando (Fla.) newspaper man has substituted a pair of sand hill cranes for watch dogs, and he finds that their loud, clear note of warning when a tramp or a burglar comes near is an effective means of protection. The manager of the automatic machines which furnish weights, sweetmeats, pens, paper, and other things to London people, recently showed the police half a ton of lead and zinc dies and thousands of pieces of cardboard that had been dropped into the machine instead of pennies. The two new victorias of the senators from California are said to be the most elegant carnages seen in Washington, Senator Stanford's attracts tlie greater attention for the reason that the coach man and footman are in deep mourning and match the somber hue of the horses and the harness. The crown princess of Austria pre sented her husliand, Prince Rudolf, with a complete outfit of goemetrical instru ments as a New Year's gift 7 The case of walnut, inlaid with silver, which held the instruments, also contained a pretty letter from the princess trusting that their lives would "henceforth bo hap pier." - California is proud of her record for 1887. Three hundred miles of new rail road were laid, the assessed value of property increased $132,000,000. the wine ami brand v product was large. 50,000,000 pounds of canned goods and 35.000,000 of green fruit were shipped. and there never was such a year for tourists. Among the gifts offered to the pope on his birthday is a contrivance by a French engineer, named Arragon, for ringing large church bells by electricity. A similar arrangement is, we lielieve. at present at work in a London church, the apparatus having been designed and erected bv some of the students at the Finsbury Technical college. A Russian general has created a great sensation' in Europe by furnishing an elaborate scheme for the construction of a railway through Siberia to the Pacific ocean. It is intended to go by the short est possible cut from the Urals to the Pacific ocean. The total cost of the road is estimated at $200,000,000, which, it is believed, can be readily raised in Rus sia itself. Ex-Governor Alger's great Michigan pine forest is located at Block river, on Lake Huron, near Alpena. It comprises 70.000 acres, or ovw 100 square miles. The annual product of the forest is from 73.000.000 to 00,000,000 feet of lumber, according to the state of the trade. There are 500 men employed in the nine camps in the forest. Hucksters are so numerous in some parts of town that they are a serious an noyance to housekeepers. A lady in West Philadelphia, tired of their repeated rings at her door bell, adopted a very shrewd moans of getting rid of them. She notified every one who came to her house that she would have him arrested for selling without license if he came again. It was only a guess of hers as to the license, but the shot went home in every case. The wife of a United States senator is believed to have broken the Washington visiting record. She made forty-eight caiia in one afternoon. Assuming that she galloped the round of her social duties in four hours, she made twelve calls an hour, or - one every five minutes. De ducting the time taken in going from house to house and estimating it at two minutes, the average duration of a call would be; . about three minutes. Three minutes, however, is sufficient for the re quirements of Washington friendship. Opening or Spain's Parliament. The ojiening of the Spanish parliament by the infant king and his mother, the queen regent, was a most interesting spectacle. The infant king was dressed in white, with a white brniift, the latter being removed upon Ids Ix'inc seated on the throne, to the right of queen Chris tina, whose black dress, only relieved by a tiara and a gold collar of diamonds, forin vl a striking contrast to the mass of gold color covering the house and light ing up the tribunes. While the queen read the speech from the thv.-T.e in clear, amiihK tones, without the slightest signs of i I K4 nervousness attributed to her, the young king surveyed the scene with complete comjiosure, fixing his attention alternately upon the assemblage and upon the queen. When the reading of the document was completed, his majesty showed a wish to be among the first to leave, but lieing taken in the queen's arms he remained perfectly quiet. Tha Argonaut.

Stealing a a 1)Ies.a of Livelihood The Amateur Kleptomaniac "Not one-tenth ml tlie people caught surreptitiously appropriating our goods are ever la-ought to justice," said the superintendent of a large dry goods es tablishment. "We have our own private detectives, some of whom are women, to protect our property, but bhopliftuig is so prevalent that not a day passes without the detection ot one or more t'ueves. ine professional thieves, adroit as they are, give us less trouble than the new hands. All the notorious shoplifters are well known to our detectives, and the mo ment one shows lier face in the doorway she is warned away. As soon as a pro fessional finds herself spotted she takes to the road and works the principal cities in regular order. It takes her several months to work the circuit, at the end of whk-h time she can start all over again without much fear of being recognized. The expert shophf ter doesn't resort to dis guises as much as the uninitiated would appose. She takes a pride in her pro fession and looks upon stealing merely as a means of livelihood. She is courageous to the extreme and steals with an audaci ty that is startling. When detected she becomes dogged, f cts with the indiffer ence of a woman of the world, looks upon tlie matter as one of the fortunes of war and never tries to crawl out of the hole by adding a lie to her other crime. There is some satisfaction in outwitting a foe like this, whose life is tinged with ro mance, and w1k will wage as fair a war fare against you as the dishonesty of her practices will admit. "On the other hand, the amateur thief or kleptomaniac, or whatever you like to call her, will resort to the meanest and most contemptible plans to steal your goods. If detected in the act, she will vilify yon. say she is insulted, threaten to sue, and lie li.'ce a Digger Indian. There is not a person on earth so dear a father, a mother, a brother or a sister whom she would not betray in order to secure immunity for herself. Often these new hands travel in pairs. When caught they disgust you with human nature by their mutual recriminations. As for the excuses offered by shop lifters when brought to bay most of them have become bo threadbare as to be known as chestnuts. Once in a while an ingenious crook will spring a new fake Story on us, some of which would be convincing enough if it wasn't for the tangible evidence. I have kept a record of all these excuses, and will enumerate a few of the common and curious ones. "First, there is the fashionably dressed woman, well connected and of undoubted respectability. Pilfering with her is, no doubt, more of a disease than a crime. She never steals anvthing very valuable, but picks up little odds and ends that take her fancy, such as a tape measure, a spool of cotton, a match safe, an odd glove, a single garter, etc. You will notice that some of these things are of no jmswble use or value to her. As far as possible we avoid bringing her failing to her notice. The trifles she has stolen are added to her bill and she pays it without being conscious of having been detected Sometimes the friends of this class of shoplifters will find out where she lias been shopping and return all the things she brought home to see if they have ail been paid for. The richly dressed woman, who passes as respectable, is the one who gives us the most trouble. She always goes in for a big haul, and haunts the lace and silk counters. Her stealings are of such magnitude, and her work w done in 6uch a bungling manner, that she is sure to be detected almost at once. When caught and requested to step into the examining room she bursts out in loud and vulgar remonstrance. After getting our goods pack we generally have her locked up. Then there is sure to be a hue and cry about an outrage and that sort of thing until she is tried and heavily fined, There are always plenty of shyster law yers to induce her to bring a suit for damages against us on the whack up plan. These vampires try to blackmail U3 into compromising the suit, but we know enough to remain firm. "A very common type of the shop lifter comes from the middle walk of life. She is generallv a foolish woman whose husband's salary is 'not large enough to supply Iter with the finery she longs for, so she determines to steal it. At first her pilferings are very small, but in time she becomes emboldened by suc cess and there is nothing too rich for her to slip under her dress. When discov ered she is full of excuses. She was just taking tlie article over to the light, or she wanted to buy something at another counter and unconsciously kept it in her hand, or she wished to obtain the opin ion of a friend whom she thought she saw at the other end of the store, or tlie thing got caught in her dress in some unaccountable manner. A woman of this kind is anxious to avoid publicity, and as she is ready enough to pay the full value of the article, we let her go scot free, after the detectives have scru tinized her so that she would be readily recognized again. "The child shoplifters are hard to de tect. They are precious little tots, and become wonderfully proficient in a short time. As they are unable to secrete many articles oa their persons, they em ploy most of their time in picking the sachets of the shoppers. You would think that a little 10-year-old girl would break down and confess everything upon being arrested, but they remain perfectly self possessed and go through the trying ordeal of a searching examination with the easy indifference of a professional. These children are taught to steal by fe male Fagins, who confiscate everything and whip them unmercifully when they are unsuccessful. "Most of these children are visions of loveliness and innocence. A woman once told me that she saw a little girl deliber ately steal her pocketbook, but there was such an imploring look in the little one'f marvelous eyes that she had not the heart to accuse her. "The contrivances for carrying 6tolen goods on the person are models of inge nuity. A long bag sewed to the inside of the dress, with a pocket two feet wide, is the most common receptacle, but a large hollow bustle, easy of access, is much used. I don't know how women can store things in such out of the way places in a public store, but valuables have been found stuffed away in their hats, corsets, shoes and stockings." New York Evening Sun. The Darwinian Theory. According to the Darwinian theory when ever any body of animals becomes too nu merous (L e,, when they threaten the extinc tion of some other species of animals) they are destroyed by the workingsof a law callerl natural selection. By this law the fittest sur vive and the weak perish. This law being ia operation, an infinite period of time has evolved from the lowest forms of animal lif the highly organized and intelligent animal known as man. This process of evolutiou, according to the theory, is still going on con tinually and will finally develop men in the course of thousands of ages into beings verg ing on approximate perfection. These theo ries, in this respect, bear a strong likeness to the millennial visions of the Beers and prophets. The Equatorial Telescope. An equatorial telescope is a telescope mounted upon a fixed axis parallel to the axis of the earth, and turning also upon a second movable axis parallel to the equator, for the continuous observation of heavenly bodies, and for noting their right ascension and de clension. The motion of the telescope around its fixed or polar axis is necessarily parallel to the equator, andJJiis gives the instrument its name. In order to maintain the object observed steadily in the field of view, the telescope is made to revolve around the polar axis by an attached clockwork, which admits of regulating so as to vary the veloci ty of rotation according as the object under examination is toe sun, the moon, a planet or a fixed star.
