Judge M
, I. Coxe, Matter
Tuesday, April 26th, wa9 Memorial
Day, and all over the south the people
came together to honor the memory ol
those who wore the Gray. In Palatka
appropriate and beautiful services were
hold in the Howell theater, under the
auspices of Patton Anderson Chapter.
U. D. C, and afterwards the eraves ol
nil the soldiers, both Confederate and
federal, who lie in our two cemeteries
were decorated with flowers and ever
the services at the theater were at
tended by a representative gathering ol
the townspeople, and the sweet old
songs sung by a well-trained chorus, the
addresses, and the solo by Miss Moragne
were all greatly enioyed.
Judge Coxe called the meeting to or
der and said in part:
"Ladies and Gentlemen: On the 26th
of every April since the "surrender" it
has been the custom of the friends of
the lost cause all over the south to
gather at their various cemeteries, un
der the auspicies of the Daughters of the
Confederacy and the United Confeder
ate Veterans, to commemorate the an
niversary of the close of our great civil
war, and to scatter flowers over the
graves of our dead heroes lying asleep
out yonder in the neighboring ceme
Away back in 1861-1865 these heroes
were in the prune of young manhood
full of life and vigor, with all the hopes
and aspirations that animated those of
us who lived at that time and that in
spire the living to-day. But one by one
they yielded up their lives to diseases
incident to the long service and to the
cruel bullets of a relentless enemy, li
is therefore but right and proper that we
should give one day in each year to
their memory, to decorate their last rest
ing places with garlands of flowers, eu
logize their unselfish sacrifices, their
patriotism and their many deeds ot
After these few remarks. Rev. Wil
liam Wiley lead the invocation, and the
chorus sang, "Tenting To-night on the
Old Camp-Ground." Then Rev. Mr.
Foster delivered the principal address of
the occasion, and his stirring and elo
quent-words will be long remembered
by those present.
This was followed by a vocal solo.
"He Givcth His Beloved Sleep," by Miss
Louise Moragne, and few sweeter or
more affecting songs have ever been
heard in Palatka.
Another song by the chorus of ladies'
voices, "Crossing the Bar," made a fit
ting end to the program, and the crowd
adiourned to the cemeteries to show
their respect and loving rememberance
of the dead heroes by garlanding their
lowly graves once more.
The King Gambler Taught the Small
Fry a Lesson.
Some years ago, when St. Louis was
wide open, Put Sheedy, king of gam
blers, was sitting lu the corridor of
the Planters' hotel- with a friend. Two
strangers took seats nlongside of Shee
dy and very shortly turned the conver-
! satlon to poker bands. They had never
seen Slieedy before nnd did not know
him, but be looked the part of a pros
perous "sport" and at the same time
appeared like "easy money."
"It's too bad," one of the straugen
said, "that we haven't another mitti
here. We might get up a little game of
draw poker."
"Wouldn't mind sitting In myself,"
aid Sheedy. with a nudge to tils
friend. "I haven't played poker for
some time."
"Suppose we play a little showdown
$1 or $5 limit?" one of the strangers
"I'm agreeable," Sheedy replied, "and
I guess my friend Is. Muke It a five
dollar limit for au hour or two."
Introductions under fictitious names
on h th sides followed, and the four
men went to Sheedy's suit. On the cut
for the first deal the Rpeaklng stranger
received the honor. The way he hau
died the cards showed that be was
used to that careless obundon method
that can only come from years of
practice by a professional gambler.
The suspicions of Sheedy and his
frleud were verltled by the first baud
shown. Isbeedy received three kings,
his friend a small full house, the deal
er's friend u pair of tens and the deal
er an ace full. The betting was very
light on the part of Sheedy and his
The next deal was Sheedy's. He
took a long while arranging the cards.
When they were dealt every one In
the party bad fours, Sheedy's baud, of
course, being the highest. The betting
was fast, aud when the bands were
shown the speaking gambler suddenly
remembered a long distance telephone
call for bli .self aud friend was await
ing them. They departed hurriedly,
and Put Sheedy, turning to his friend,
"Sly boy. It's been twenty yearn
since I had to do that for a living."

I was the first candidate for Countv
Commissioner to make announcement
from District five. I also am the first lo
be knocked out, in the first round, and
that before being allowed to enter the
ring. 1 plead, purely, ignorance of the
law or in fact, that there was such a
law. I was not notified by Mr. l-'earn-
side, or by any one else as to that mat
ter, of the lime limit ol April 11th being
the final day for paying assessment, and
1 was caught 3 days late as I did not re
mit mine till Thursday.
1 had one thing especially in view if
elected and that was to put every effort
forward and use all of the energy that
1 could bring forth to make the best and
most useful commissioner possible to
all the citizens of this District and this I
tried to make plaiu in my announce
ment. Respectfully,

Best Treatment for Colds.
"Most ordinary colds will yield to
the simplest treatment," says the Chi
cago tribune, inoderative laxatives
hot foot baths, a free perspiration and
an avoidance of exposure to cold and
wet after treatment " While this
treatment is simple, it requires con
siderable trouble, and the one adopting
it must remain in doors for a any or
two, or a fresh cold is almost sure to
be contracted and in many instances
pneumonia follows. Is it not better
to pin vour faith to au old reliable

In Explanation.
The editor of the Palatka News is be
tween the "old boy himself" and the
"deep sea" of politics this week. The
county campaign committee has made a
list of appointments for the county can
didates which takes him from the office
every day this week, and there is noth
ing lor him to do but go. Mr. Vickers
is so busy in the job printing depart
ment that it is impossible for him to
give much attention to the editorial de
partment, and in consequence the paper
will have to be gotten out in a slip-shod
manner. The same condition will pre
vail next week, then will come the pri
mary, after which we'll know "where
we are at." From then on the New
will take its accustomed place as a pur
veyor of the news, and all the news
that's to be had. In Ihe meantime the
editor asks the indulgence of his readers,
and, white he is at it, will not forget to
say that he will also appreciate the sup
port of all those who are qualified elec
tors, in the coming primary.

Mr. Isaiah Williams, one of the oldest

which time he has made his home with
his children. Mr. Williams is survived

ol Bardin and Mrs. D. P. Hancock of
Bostwick; four sons, Luke and W. A.
Williams of this county, W. T. Williams
