Stock and wife met with o sad bereavement In the death of their little son, an infant some fifteen months of age. The illness of the child was brief, and all that human love and skill could do failed to save the little life, which passed out Into the Great Beyond in the early hours of Fri day morning. The burial service was held that afternoon, from the home of Prof. Stock, and in spite of the stormy weather, a large number of friends gathered to assist in the last rites. Rev. S. J. Townsemd conducted the service, assisted by the girl choir of the Congre gational church. The grief stricken parents have the heartfelt sympathy of everyone in their time of sorrow and trial. Rev. S. J. Townsend went, as usual, to fill his appointment at Grove Park last Sunday, returning Monday, and the Congregational church had no preach ing service on Sunday. Rev. Collier held services in the M. E. church, as usual. Rev. J. L. Jordan, of Biloxl, Miss., will remain here several weeks, as a guest of his daughter, Mrs. W. B. Young, ana son, Mr. w. Jordan. A large party of young merry-makers lrom our town descended upon Mann villc on Monday evening, making head quarters at the home of Mrs. H. T. Mann, and from all reports they had a most hilarious time. Our young people are not affected by the "summer dull ness in the least. Mrs. Eva Corthell has returned to Jacksonville, after a few days here look ing after her property interests. Mr. Ed Clingensmith, accompanied by W. B. Eilcr, both of Findlay, Ohio, stopped over here on the way north for a brief visit to the Mariner's Lake colo ny, among whose hospitable people Mr. Clingensmith and his wife spent the winter two years since. Mr. W. F. Phelps, of Minneapolis, Minn., registered at the Lake View for his large party of sight seers and land seekers who were here the first days of tins week. A much needed and greatly appre ciated improvement to the cemetery is the concrete pavilion now in process of construction. This structure will be not only a great convenience, but an orna ment to the cemetery. Ismail markers of concrete have already been placed in position, defining the boundaries of tots and alleys, and the driveways are being clayed.

Popular Ocala Pastor Made Victim of Some of Them. The Ocala Star of last Friday contains the following story of some fun enjoyed by Rev. J. P. Hilburn, D. D.. president of Southern College, at the expense of his friend, Kev. J. W. Bigham, the popu lar pastor of the Methodist chuch in Ocala: "Rev. J. P. Hilburn and son Oscar of Sutherland are guests of the Ocala House. lo-morrow Dr. Hilburn will go to Palatka to visit bis brother Hon. Sam Hilburn, recently elected state sena tor from Putnam county. The next day Dr. Hilburn will attend the Methodist conference at Crescent City In the in terest of Southera College of which he is the head. "The doctor is going to have a busy summer looking after the interest of Sutherland and securing students for same. Mr. Oscar Hilburn having gradu ated with honor at Sutherland, will con tinue his studies at Vanderbilt, in Lng lish literature and probably law. "Dr. Hilburn who is a most genial gentleman and enjoys a joke on a friend better than a Delmonicojdinner, got a good one on his friend Kev. J. W. Bigham. He first called him up and wanted to know if he could secure his services to marry him and what the price would be. "The beauty of all this by play was that Kev. Bigham did not recognize Dr. Hiburn's voice. "Well said Rev. Bigham the price would depend, etc. Was asked if it would be as high as $10, or if it could be done for $5. Finally said Hilburn, well I'll see a notary and maybe I can have it done for 12.50. Oh, said Bigham, if it runs as low as that, 1 do it for nothing. When do you want me. Will call you up after a rest. "Dr. Hilburn again connected with Rev. Bigham and this time he wanted to engage B. to make local option speeches at $25 a day and expenses, as the calir understood he had great repu tation along this line. With indignant voice Rev. B. said who are you. No answer. You are mistaken said B. I'm a state-wide prohib. No matter about that this is a business proposition. Will you or will you not accept. I re pudiate the whole thing and B. hung up the receiver. "Then Dr. Hilburn remembered that when Rev. B. was pastor in Jackson ville he gave a darkey $3 to build a chicken coop and that was the last of nigger and the $3. So Dr. Hilburn rang Rev. B. up again saying I want to go into the chicken business and want to borrow $3 to buy an incubator. This last tore Rev. B. all to pieces, but he didn't know who his interlocutor was. Demanded eis name, etc. But didn t get it. Here scene three ended. "Another rest and then Dr. Hilburn calleJ up Rev. B. again telling who he was, etc. Rev. B. invited Dr. Hilburn to the parsonage, but Dr. H. declined for said he, I have it on you good instanced his telephone interviews, etc., and you have to come down to the Ocala House to see me. This he prom ised after a hearty laugh, acknowledging the corn without the juice. Becomes a County Charge. Louis Funk of Georgetown, who for manv vears. owing to misfortune and chronic illlness, has been given a small pension from the pauper fund, has re cently become totally blind This fact becoming known to the county commis sioners at the last meeting of the board, Funk's monthly pension was increased to $16. For the past several years Funk has been able to do a little work for his own support, but he is now absolutely heloless.

II OGALA NORTHERN IS BUILDING But Will Not Reach Palatka Before Next Year. E. P. Rentz, of Ocala, the man who is building the Ocala Northern Railroad, the new road that is to traverse the fine farming section between Ocala and Pa latka, was in the city Wednesday. Mr. Rentz stated that the road was now operating several trains per day be tween Ocala and Fort McCoy, and that the construction gang were at work be tween Fort McCoy and Orange Springs. to which latter place the road would be completed in a short time. Asked when he hoped to have trains running into Palatka, Mr. Rentz said he couldn't fix a time because of the diffi culties they were having in getting labor. "But," said he, "the road will be com pleted into Palatka some time next year. "It is marvelous, continued Mr. Rentz, "the way the Ocala-Burbank col ony lands are filling up, and the im provements the people are making. We are getting a fine class of colonists, and more than 4UU farms arc already occu pied. In addition to this colony, the road will traverse the lands of the big farms company recently purchased of the Rodman Lumber Company, . and which is also being promoted by re sponsible parties. It would open the eyes of Palatka people to go down and see the work that has already been ac complished in these colonics, and it seems to me that the wise thing for Pa latka to do would be to get in touch with these people as soon as possible. Mr. Rentz confesses that his most seri ous trouble just now is in getting labor. Could he solve this problem his road might be completed to Palatka before the end of the present year. New Books at Public Library. The Palatka Public Libray has recently been the recipient of several presents of books, among which are the following: From Mrs. R. S. Paine, of Nashua. Fla. 'At the Time Appointed." bv A. Maynard Barbour. A Man s Woman, by r-rnnk Nonss. "Aunt Diana." bv Rosa Mouchctte Carey. "Peggy of The Bartons." "Dimbil and I," by Mabel Barnes-Grundy. Also the following books from Mrs. Jones, of Interlachen maids and Matrons of New France, by Mary Sifton Pepper. 1 he Destiny of Dons, bv lulius Chambers. " Bob Hampton of Placer." bv Randall Parrish. ' In a Tuscan Garden." Will Organize B. P. O. E. H. F. Leeks has taken the initiative in the organization of a lodge of the Be nevoleut and Protective Order of Elks in this city and already has the names of some 40 or more prominent business and professional men who will join with him in applying for a charter. 1 bis is one of the best fraternal or ganizations in the country, the Rev. Lcn Broughton of Atlanta, to the con trary notwithstanding. It is in no way affiliated with the Y. M. C. A. as some would have you think, but it has a much prettier button and often takes into its membership young men who are ap parently neglected by that organization. When an Elk dies, his lodge sets apart one day each year, when is held what is called a Lodge of Sorrows. At this meeting local clergymen and other public speakers are invited to come in and compete with the obituary editors of the local press in constructing w ings for the departed s celestial use and phras ing sentences that will draw tears from the eyes of such Elks as are not ripe enough to pluck. But this sorrow lodge is only held once a year. During the other 364 days a moderate amount of hilarity is per mitted. Porter's Peculiar Strength. Old man Porter, the county pauper who was several weeks ago incarcerated in the county jail charged with the mur der of the negro Gadsden, a jail trusty who had been deputized to wait on him. has been granted a special privilege and one not usual to prisoners charged with a capital offense. This old scoundrel, now in the neigh borhood of 80 years of age, is without doubt the foulest smelling old reprobate remaining unhung. A glue factory in active eruption is like unto attar of roses in comparison. Mortification seems to have set in throughout all his anatomy except, perhaps, his disposi tion, and that is too mean and active for the death germs to find lodgment. so awful was the stench which this man produced in the jail that the negro prisoners turned sick and begged the privilege of hanging their noses through the outside window grating, strong men among them were seen to weep. Their entreaties to the sheriff for some sort of relief were pitiful. At the last meeting of tho board of county commissioners, Deputy Sheriff Pete Hagan appeared before the board and in as chaste and delicate language as he could command, explained the odor. "Words," he said, "were inade quate to convey an idea it had to be tasted to be appreciated." He said the odor was causing a sort of corroding substance to gather on the iron work and that the stone flagging was exud ing slime. He asked the members of the board to come up to the jail and in hale an inch or two of the peculiar at mosphere, but the commissioners seemed to be quite willing to take Mr. Hagan s word. some of us, said Commissioner Alvers, "have whiskers. and the best medical authorities have asserted that while these have an un doubted artistic value in facial adorn ment, and great vote getting power in our rural districts, they may become, in the hands of the careless, dangerous as conveyers of germs and odors. He thought too much of himself, his fami ly and his constituents to take the risk." At Mr. Hagan s request the sheriff was allowed to fix up an old out house in the jail yard in which to encase Porter, and he has since been removed from the jail. Since his removal the jail has been thoroughly scrubbed, aired and disinfected, and a more cheerful, con tented look is coming into the faces of the negro prisoners; their appetites are returning and a life of innoxious desue tude again begins to have its allure ments.

Most of the preliminaries have been arranged for the incorporation of the Urpneum 1 heater Co. of Palatka. I he money for the venture has all been sub scribed by local capitalists, and some others who probably do not possess enough to entitle thorn to such a rating. But the thing is a go. The new Orpheum Theater is to be of the airdome kind, with canvas or sliding root, so as to render it comfort able for summer night performances. Louis Kalbfield. who knows a good many things about theaters and who has the advantages that come with a life-long association with show people, will be the manager of the new theater. The building will occudv the SDace on lower Lemon street next to Mooney's undertaking rooms, and when completed will have a seating capacity of 1,000. The stage will be one of the largest in Florida. For the summer season it is the purpose of the new company to give popular price attractions. And by popu lar prices is ment 10 and 20 cent admis sions. Contractors Saro'flgurlng on the new theater this week, and ail of the material, except what can be purchased right here in Palatka, has been ordered. Such a big auditorium will be a real advantage to Palatka. in that it will nro vide a place for conventions and big public meetings. Palatka Bridge Earnings.

CUMMING3 Copyright, 1910, by American Preu Association. Job Wllklns was altogether too ten der hearted for a sheriff. He lived In a town not far from the Canadian bor der with his wife and children aad only accepted the position because no one else would take It. Besides oar ing nothing but the house he lived in, he needed the pitiful salary attached to the office. One night a citizen of the place was waylaid, sandbagged and robbed. A man named Fletcher was suspected and arrested. Fletcher's wife went to Mrs. Wilklna with a pitiful story of her husband's innocence and persuaded her to beg the sheriff to let Fletcher off. When Wllklns came home he found Mrs. Fletcher at his house. She told so straight a story and begged so hard that Wllklns, since he had no power to let his prisoner go free, agreed to fur nish ball for his appearance in court. Wllklns signed a ball bond for $4,000, and Fletcher was released from jail. Fletcher disappeared. It was evi dent that it was his purpose to Jump his bail, and to pay the bond would take all Wllklns had his home. He heard of Fletcher's flight a few days after It occurred, and, setting a watch on Mrs. Fletcher, she and her bus- band were traced to a Canadian vil lage a dozen miles beyond the border. Something must be done to save what little Wllklns possessed. Be sides, the sheriff was very wroth at having been tricked. He thought over the different ways by which the crimi nal might be bronght back and deter mined that be would try to kidnap him. This he preferred to using the process of extradition, which he con sidered hopeless. Wllklns Interested a friend of his named Parker, who agreed to help him. Unfortunately for their plan the village where Fletcher lived was the beaquarters of a troop of mounted po lice. To go Into a town right under the noses of these men, capture a man protected by British law and carry him twelve miles was a risky under taking. At nightfall the two men, having hired the fastest team they could find, crossed the St. Lawrence river by fer ry. They agreed to pay the ferryman a good sum to be on the Canadian bank at the time of their return and be ready to push off at a moment's notice. They hired another team at a village midway between the river and their point of attack. This team was to be ready and waiting for them In the road on their return. Wllklns and Parker drove into the town where Fletcher lived soon after bedtime. Fletcher's house had been located, and, pulling up before the door, Wllklns alighted and knocked. Presently Fletcher In nightclothe opened the door. Wllklns cowed him at the point of a pistol, then threw his strong arms around birn and literally carried him, kicking and struggling, to the wagon. With ropes ready they bound tbelr prisoner and were driving off when Fletcher'B wife appeared at a window, screaming loud enough to wake the whole village. As they dash ed through the streets sashes were thrown up and people put out their heads to see what was the matter, lights appeared, there were cries of "Stop 'em!" and presently a church bell began to sound an alarm that roused the police force. By this time they had reached the outskirts of the village and were clat tering southward along the turnpike. Wllklns kept looking backward, but could see no followers until they had covered a mile. Then the sound ot horses' hoofs on the stones told him that the mounted police had started oa their pursuit. Down came the whip oa the horses' haunches, and they nearly doubled their pace. For five miles it was a steady chase. Their team was a good one, and the police were mounted on indifferent horses. Nevertheless the latter had gained a little at every milestone. When they drew near the village where they expected to find their relay team their pace was considerably diminish ed. Looking ahead, there stood the team ready beside the road. Tbelr pursuers were not a quarter of 'a mile away. Pulling up beside the relay, they bustled their prisoner from one team to the other and were off before their pursuers came up. The sergeant of police, seeing that the kidnapers had secured fresh horses, sent several of his best mounts to make a dash for them. Wllklns' horses, though fresh, had a load to pnll, and this made an even race. Bullets be gan to whistle past them, but they galloped on, their pursuers maintain ing their distance behind them. Then a bullet pierced one of the borate. This looked as though the game was up, but the animal seemed goaded to gallop the faster. Finally from a rise In the ground the kidnapers could see the dim out lines of the river. It was an Incline straight down to the ferryboat, which they could see on the near shore. The horses bad been obliged to walk up the rise, which had brought their pursuers dangerously near them. Now Wilklna pushed them down the Incline In spit of the danger of their stumbling and falling, the sound horse now dragging the wounded one. Pulling np besld the ferryboat, they hurried their man Into It, the ferryman poshed off, and the police appeared on the top of the rise an eighth of a mile away. When the court met to try Fletcher he was on hand. Chamberlain's ISmmHr. wagon." Lippuaeott's.
