The special dispatches to The Daily News of yesterday from its correspon dents in Washington and Jacksonville, gave assurance of the final and favorable decision of the President in the matter of the long talked of Florida trip. The Chief Magistrate is to arrive next Wednesday in Jacksonville, stopping there on his way to St. Augustine, to visit the Sub-Tropical Exposition, and making this city the terminus of his journey, where he will spend a night and the greater part of two days. lie is expected in the Ancient City Thursday morning, very quietly and unostentatiously. The management of the Ponce de Leon have been busily engaged making preparations for the entertainment of the distinguished guests, . The magnificent suite of rooms in the western wing, known as the bridal chambers, will be made ready for the President and Mrs. Cleveland and other rooms on the same floor and in the vi cinity wilj doubtless be occupied by the other members of the President's ira mediate party, consisting of Secretary "Whitney and wife, Col. Daniel Lamont and wife, and possibly Secretaries Fair child and Vilas and their wived. On the arrival of the special train the party will be met at the depot by a guard of honor, detailed from the Second Artillery, TJ. S. A., who will act as an escort from the depot to the hotel. Gen. Ayres, commandant of the post, will act as commanding officer, and with Rear Admiral Upshur and other distinguished military and naval officers at present in the city, will join in the pleasing duty of making the President's visit agree able. The remainder of the Second Artillery will be posted for guard duty near the entrance of the hotel. Once within the hospitable portals of the Ponce de Leon, the party will be come.the honored guests of the house and will pass through the quadrangle to the main entrance between files of employes in full uniform and be received at the doors of the rotunda by the proprietor, while the Ponce de Leon military band will discourse appropriate music from the central balcony above. Arrived within, the party will be enabled to en joy a period of welcome rest and retire ment, unmolested by the public, who will be given an opportunity later to pay - their respects to the President and Mrs. Cleveland. Kefreshed by this season of respite from the excitement of their public reception in Jacksonville, and by appro priate services of the mid-day luncheon, an informal reception will be in order for the especial benefit of local officials and friends and acquaintances of the party resident in the city and among the guests of the Ponce de Leon and other hotels. A public reception will doubtless take place later in the day, and a brief drive about the city will also probably be included in the programme, At night the entire building and grounds will be elaborately decorated and bril liantly illuminated in a manner quite unique and startling. Such substantially will be the order of arrangements, the intention being to have them as quiet, simple and unosten tatious as possible, giving the dis tinguished guests as much opportunity as possible for rest aud quiet enjoyment of their visit, instead of the worry aud turmoil of a formal public reception. 1 he arrangement are in the hands of those who can scarcely fail to make the occasion a season of real en joyment to the Presidential party. The handsome new 'bus for the Ponce de Leon arrived Wednesday night It is the finest in the city and cost $1,000 at the factory. It was built by the Racine Wagon and Carriage Company, Ql itacine, wis. The Saint LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The fancy . chain? fence around the I ' J Ponce de Leon is being put in place.

Colee, in charge of the cake and ice cream table at the Catholic fair. received yesterday afternoon a large freezer of ice cream with the compli ments of Mr. Seavey of the Hotel Ponce de Leon. As the confidence and bunko man is getting a little familiar around our streets and hotels, the management of our different hotels have combined to gether for the purpose of protecting their guests against their games, and issued the following circular: "BEWARE OF CONFIDENCE MEN. . Positively identify any one who may approach you, purporting to be an ac quaintance or the son of an acquaint ance, before accompanying him any where. You do not wish to see their books or care to witness the paying over of lot tery money. Strangers are approached daily with these games. .

At the ooening unces tor leaning grains were unchanged, but trading was limited, as it was at first closely watched, there being much uncertainty what sort of action would follow yesterday's sharp declines. Before there was any decided action in grain the bears began a raid on provisions, their ellorts being mainly directed against pork. By preconcerted selling and sensational offerings below the market the nrice broke 50 cents in short order, lliede- cline'in May was from $14.30 to $i3.!). Of course a reaction loiioweu. i lie nreaa snaucea targe packers and bears who have been short sev eral months to liegin covering. Large lines were rauidlv absorlied. and the decline was stopped and prices started upward, and before long had leaded to $14.10. Trailing decreased somewhat after midday; the feeling became nervous, values receded to $13.924. out closed at $l4iti.l4.32. below last night's close. Short ribs were active ana ueennea lit to i cents, but reacted 2W to 5 cents and closed steady; offerings by scattering holders were large, nut miyers ansoroea mem quite reaaiiy. Lard was slow but held up stubbornly. May sold at $7.67Hr'7.75, closing at $7.75. Corn was an interesting niamet. on eanv weakness in pork the crowd pounded it and succeeded in getting themselves very short. May oiened at 504, sold down to 50, but about the time pork turned upward there were some buying orders, which caused a second Hurry. A bulge was started by two or three local houses bidding W cent over the market, which started the crowd, and there was a scramble for cover. In afew minutes May jumped from oO to 59.14, and before noon sold at 5tAi, finally closing at ftui. There was nothing in ad vices to warrant any neiter prices tor wneai mis morning man on yesterday. T.he ciowd was ready for a re action, tint it was delayed by a raid on pork. The closing hour was more quiet, and May hung around 8uynWHi'4, and closed lor the day at KM.

A French investigator has recently stndlfd th? in2ue:iTO of cold and hot baths opou tbe respiratory tuul imtritive processes. His con clusion is that under tbe influence of cold baths more oxygen is absorbed and more carbonic acid is expelled. At the same time more air passes through the lungs. Hoc baths act in a similar manner, but in a less marked degree. . - liie tlible as the Law. " A convention of tbe settlers near QaiUi piac, Coon., was heid April 13, KSS, in a barn at that place.

'a2U-30H Scene In New York City. "Does this lino of people begin at the Bat tery!" was asked at the ticket ofliee window of the Grand Central station the other day. "chit in nuJoeean, I should jude," was th laconic reply of the jumping jack inside tha window, who flew from side to side playing a wild game of tickets and coins 011 the broad sill, as the line passed between him and tha brass rail outside. "Hove on into the corner to count your change," the stalwart policeman on the out side whispers to any one who dallies a frac tion of a second in front of the cage. Men sweep the whole of their change to gether with their left hands. Women invari ably stop to count the pieces in a dazed, fumbling sort of way born of suspicion, ner vousness, tight gloves and many packages. Now and again a neat little tailor mods Boston girl sweeps oil tho change like any young dude, bettering him by having a neat little purse in her left hand, which snaps vi ciously as she tilts her nose and her oxidized sliver umbrella handle toward tho big chan delier and passes by. "From ten to fifteen thousand people. pas3 by between this window and that brass rod daily," gasped the jumping jack, wiping tho perspiration from his brow as the gong sounded and the last man biro through the gate, his cane punching into the stomach of tho big fat policeman, and his coat tail atching on the complacent brass knob. "Tho work is divided between three men." "Don't you find coins very inconvenient for hasty handling?" "An infernal nuisance. I wish all money was in cardlioard, like tickets, ffe have so many pennies, too, because we cliarge a fixed rate per mile." New York Sun. Tea Picture of Stockholm. TVe entered Stockholm in the full glare of a midday sun, and drove immediately to tho spacious Grand hotel, which looked out on the water just opposite the royal palace. After taking our dinner we took a stroll around the city and saw in our walk the palace of the crown prince, which is not occupied at present, on Gustave Adolph lorg (lorg meaning place) and the opera house, a building very similar, just opposite. We then crossed the bridge to tho island, on which stands the ilace, and at our request the attendant showed us through, as the royal family were in the country. The apartments of the king and queen ara both beautiful and magnificent, but to a great many the home like suite of tho crown prince and princess, and particularly their private apartment, are preferable, as through them prevails an air of comfort and cozinesa dear to Americans. We then returned for our supper and for dessert. They brought us some pancakes, a specialty of the country. The day following we visited tho museum and the churches, also the beautiful environs of Stockholm, incluiling the castles of the Gripsholm and Drothingholzn. In tho even ings there were numerous gardens with mili tary bands, the Swedish punch liting the fa vored beverage. In what is called tho DJur garten or deer park there are a theatre, a cir cus and a tivolis, tho latter a great report for all nationalities. Cor. Home Journal. New York Marring Lavs. A curious result of the marriage laws in New York state has recently been noted. It is claimed that it is possible there :or a man to have several lawful wives at the same time; that he can be married to a fresh wife every five years under tjns section which permits re-marriage (but ,4-bids di vorce) after desertion for that ftugth ii time. But the law also provides that every marriage legal where contracted is valid here; and that a divorce obtained in another state is not valid in New York, unless both parties were under the jurisdiction of the court granting it. Jones marries, brings hi wife to New York, applies in Chicago for a divorce, and obtains it. That divorce, valid in Illinois and not valid in New York, ena bles him to marry another woman in Illinois, and the New York courts recognize that marriage as valid and compel him to suport both wives. He may rejieat this ten times a year and fill his harem. The co'irts will up hold all the marriages as valid and throw out all the divorces. A Laxy Man's Ingenuity. A Kingston man, who keeps a horf, takes a ride every morning before he goes to work. The only dravback is, the horse must be fed and watenj i before the ride can be taken. HeTetoK ' the man has been forced to get up at .Varly hour, go to the barn some distanc&'away, to care for the horse. Lately he has ar ranged a bin and hopper, containing oats, over the feed box, which can be operated by a touch of a door knob on the wall a few inches from the head of his bed. An arrangement is also made for let ting on water in. the paiL by which the horse is watered. When the man wakes up in the morning, at that time when he feels that a second nap would be a great blessing, he pulls the knob, which turns on the oats and water, and then quietly lies back on his pillow and goes to sleep. Some would call this man lazy, but others would say he was an ingenious in dividual. Tropical Agriculture. In order to encourage the youth of tbe island of Jamaica in the study of the first principles of agriculture as applic able to their climate and soil, the govern ment of that island has offered a pre mium of $500 for the production of the best text book, elementary in plan, era- bracing simplicity, brevity and freedom from technical terms. It is to be a manna) calculated to create in the minds of the youth early and intelligent interest in the soil, and in tbe profitable cultiva tion of products that will command a ready homo or foreign market. The work must be eminently practical, and entirely free from untried or doubtful theories. Ameiictin Agriculturist. - vs. s a 5. S. B. and mnbs1 cover wiihwnL .nd ?
