Full line at the riillinery store of Miss Kate Lucas. Her Brother By ROBERT L. JAYNES Copyright, 1910, by American Press Association. When I was keepln' store In Arl zony a young wouiun come In on the stage one evenln' and put up at the tavern. The next mornln' she come Into my store and tole me she'd come out from the east to find employment. She couldn't stenograph or typewrite. If she could she needn't have come away from home, but she could keep a cash account, sell goods and do any ord'nary work about the store. She was a mighty trim little body, and I tole her she'd better git married and lot the other feller do the work; but she larfed and said It tuk two to make a match. I tuk her in for help, think In' If she turned out as well as she looked I wouldn't mind makin' the other one of the two. But It soon appeared that she wasn't goln' to turn out as well as she looked. First thing I knowed a feller came Into the store to see her that looked like a road agent. They seemed to be mighty familiar and did a lot o' talkin' In the back o' the store while I was engaged wnltin' on a customer In the front. When the feller went out I said to the young woman, says I: "Rosy" that was her name "if you're cahoots with a gang o' robbers the sooner you git out the better." "Oh, that feller was all right!" she said. "Who la he?" "Why, he's my brother." "Your brother!" I says, turnln' away from her contemptuously. "If that's the kind of family y' belong to I don't think much of ycr stock." There was nothln' more said about It at the time, but I done up a lot o' thlnkin'. Fust off I thort I'd better give the young womnn the grand bounce, but I didn't know whether she was up to anything or not, and If she wasn't I didn't want to lose her. She wasn't so much use about the store I didn't have so very much for her to do but I'd got a hankerln after her. Well, the next thing that happened looked kind o' suspicious. I was layln' one night on a settle In the back o' the store when I heered somethln' rnttlin' at the front door. I jlst reached back under a plller, tuck my weepon and let drive through the panel I heered a yell an', goln' to the door, listened. Not hcarln' anything more, I opened the door and by the light of a match I struck saw drops o' blood leadln' away. I cnlc'lated I'd hit some uu' who was goln' to rob the store. Wal, this thing coniln' so soon after the visit of Rosy's brother, I didn't know what to think about It. I noticed when I tole her about It sbe looked kinder qunr. "Uope he wnrn't yer brother," I said to her, an' I thort she was goln' to faint. Seeln' It bothered her to talk about it I didn't say nothln' more, and after awhile she righted, though for a few days she didn't look very cheerful. But one day the feller that she said was her brother come In. lie looked kind o' white In the face. He talked with Rosy awhile an' went out. "Reckon yer brother's been sick," I says, a-sympathlzln' with her. "Yes," she snys, "he has." "What's he do fer a Uvin'?' "He nlnt doln' nothln' jlst now. I'm tryin' to git a place fer him. Trade's mighty brisk lately. Don't yer think y need a shippln clerk?" "I don't think I do." I wondered If she thort I was soft enough to believe the feller was her brother and out of employment. I reckoned he wasn't employed, except when he was holdln' up a coach or somepln' like that. And I reckoned she'd have to do a lot o' conxon to git me to take In a man to work who'd tried to rob me and I'd winged when ho was startln" In to do it But we men are kind o" quar 's well as tho wlmmen. Ono day the feller come Into the store In a hurry. Rosy was there and turned pale. He said somep'n to her quick, and she p'Inted under the counter. He ducked Just In time to dodge the sheriff, who come runnhV In with a weepon in one hand and a pa'r o' bracelets In t'other. Rosy she stood up agin the counter right where the feller wor hid. "Enny one come in here?" asked the sheriff. Now, I'm a-goln' to explain why we mon Is quar as well as the wlmmen. Rosy she give me Jlst one look. She might as well have sent a few ounces o' lend at me, so far as my doln' enny Interference was concerned. "Halnt seen no one," I says, talkin' parrot-like. Jest as Rosy wanted me to. "Singular; I thort I had him cor nered." , . Ho was out in a JUTy, and when the danger was past Rosy put the feller in a back office I had my boots In and called me In too. "You're a trump!" she says. "And yer brother's the knave," I says, replyin. She could sca'cely keep from larfln at my Joke. But she didn't She tole me the feller wor rtely he brother, that he'd gone bad "and she'd come out to reclaim him. She had got him to promise to go east with her, but she couldn't get nim on onis i u ucy u Instead o' glvln' 'em away, i w.B u va An nil I could on condition Bhed come back and run her part the store and me, too, as she'd been a-doin of It She promised, and I got 'era ,way safe. She's back now, ruiuuu and the store. Chamberlain's Coughl Remedi Curt. Old. Croup tad Whvwptog CW. HER BODY EATEN BY BUZZARDS, Aged White Woman Found in Simm's Creek Wednesday. John Register and E. W. Roberts dis covered the body of an aged white wo man floating in Simm s creek some seven miles west of Bostwick Wednes day morning. They Immediately noti fied the sheriff's office and Deputy 1 lagan and Justice John h. Marshall went to the scene. A jury composed of K. A. Varn, 1 . K. Livingston, M. Cul pepper, E. W. Glisson, M. Glisson and J. Dycss, was sworn. The body was found to be that of Mrs. Frony Brooks, 70 years of age. She was last seen alive at Bostwick on Mon day the 5th inst. The body was badly eaton by buzzards and cat fish both arms being gone. Her clothes were hanging on a limb close to the water's edge. Mrs. Brooks was a county charge and slightly demented. I he Jury re turned a verdict of, accidental drowning. It is probable that the body had been in the water more than a week. The County Commissioners. S. A. Baker of Seville and Robt. L. Smith of Denver urged the opening of a direct public road in the southern part of the county to connct with the Volu sia public road, and Mr. Baker offered to give all the timber, clay and sand necessary to build said road in Putnam Co., and also said V. H. McBride of Seville would also aid in the road's con struction. F. E. Recder and John Dallow of We laka wanted shell instead of clay used in constructing roads on the peninsula. They also slated that they had raised money by private subscription for work on road from Wclaka to Porter's Land ing, and because of this fact asked the board to pay a bill to the Wilson Cypress Co of $77.40 for lumber used in making a ferry landing and bridges.. This was granted. A request was made to place J. C. Phillips of Georgetown on the poor farm and the matter was referred to Sheriff Kcnnerly. Nicholas Funk's re quest that he be paid for caring for his brother, a county charge, was turned down. The contract for repairs on the Rice Creek bridge was awarded to J. E. Lucas and his bond fixed at $250. The pension of Mrs. Helen Woods was increased to $5 per month. The county treasurer was asked to correct his books, wherein he had failed to apportion a part of the tax money re ceived from the railroads to the sinking fund for county bonds. Mary Howard and her daughter Fanny were discharged from the poor farm and again granted pauper pensions of $2 per month each. The sheriff was authorized to hire a house keeper for the poor farm and given power to place any pauper pen sioner on the farm whom he thought it would be the part of economy so to place. The petition of L. L. Moody to have his name placed on the ticket as an In dependent candidate for County Com missioner from District No. 2, was granted. Warrant No. 1292 for the sum of $3069.94 was ordered cancelled. Min utes of the board don't show who is to be disappointed. Warrants were ordered drawn in favor of the trustees for county bonds as fol lows; from General Fund $640 74; from Road fund, $249.18; from Bridge Fund, $249.18, as part payment of amount due to the Interest and Sinking Funds. A resolution was adopted arranging with the F. E. C. R'y. concerning and fixing the right of way and county road at East Palatka, in which the county gets $500 from the railroad. The sheriff was instructed to keep all cattle and other stock off the court house lawn. A Credit to Palatka. F. J. Fearnside of the Fearnside Cloth ing Co., of this city, is at present in New York selecting an immense stock of fall and winter clothing for his firm here. While in the eastern markets, Mr. Fearnside will visit the famous clothing plants of the A. B. Kirschbaum Co. of Philadelphia, The Stein-Block Co. of Rochester, andSchloss Bros., of Baltimore, and will purchase the very newest styles in colors and designs of men's up-to-date hand-made clothing. Mr. Fearnside has also arranged to vis it the great shoe markets of Massacha chusctts, including Campello, Brockton and Boston, the largest shoe centers of the world, where he will purchase all the new fall styles from the famous houses of Ralston Health Shoe Co., Kor-rect-Shape, W. L. Douglas and Hanan. It is a well-known fact the country over, that Ralston and Korrcct-Shapc shoes are the only genuine GUARANTEED PAT ENT LEATHERS these he will pur chase in all the new shape toes and leathers. Mr. Fearnside writes that ho is meet ing with great success in getting early shipments and that when completed the stock of the Fearnside Clothing Com pany for the coming fall will be the larg est and most up-to-date ever brought to this section of Ihe state, comprising the very newest styles in men's wearing ap parel known to the world of fashion. The up-to-date methods of the Fearn side Clothing Company arc in keeping with the ''Go Ahead" spirit of Palatka and is indeed a credit to the city. Aged Ntgr'tt Murdered ..Sarah Powell, an aged colored w man, was found murdered in her ciili ti near Callahan. The woman had been beaten over the head with a Winches ter rifle, and her oody bore ugly gashes made with an axe. The disap pearance of Miller Powell, husband of the woman, has lei the Folice to sus picion him of the crime.

Will Locate in Palatka Have Leased Quarters in Florida Southern Building. Balbin Bros, of Tampa, manufacturers of Havana cigars, and with prospect of employing some 200 hands, secured a lease irom tlie A. U. L,. K'y tins week for the north end of the Florida Southern R'y building on Water street, next to the vv. A, flicrryday Co. This makes the third large cigar man ufacturing firm to locate in Palatka dur ing the past month. And the prospects are good for as many more. If more don't come it won't be the fault of the Palatka board of trade. Balbin Bros, have not moved their factory here yet, but they have complet ed arrangements for its removal. Jose Escalante & Co. of Tampa, who moved into the south half of the same building last Friday, arc already settled and at work. The firm now has some 75 men employed and is adding to its force daily. Corral, Wodiska &Co., the first Tam pa factory to move here, and which se cured the old Fry opera house building, has about the same force. Mr. Wodiska told the News that his men were all very well pleased with Pa latka and that the coming of other fac tories, giving employment to a large number of additional Cuban cigarmak ers, was adding to their pleasure. He said that he favored, and believed the scheme of securing a piece of land on the outskirts of Palatka for a cigar manu facturers suburb, was entirely prac tical, and he believed that with a Utile effort would result. Mr. Wodiska is most severe in his de nunciation of the Tampa authorities, whom he declares arc doing nothing to prevent the frequent outrages upon cigar makers of that city, whose only offense consists of a desire, and an attempt to leave that city where they are denied the right to work by the hoodlums of the city, or to seek employment elsvwhcrc. For instance, the Tampa Tribtfne of Mondav in telling of various Sunday as saults and shootings in that city gives this example: "Police headquarters were notified at 2:45 in the afternoon that O. Gras, a Cuban, about 45 years of age, had been assaulted by three men at Ninth avenue and Nineteenth street. The patrol was sent to an Ybor City drug store, where Gras was taken after the assault. Thence he was carried to the police station, w here his wounds were dressed and he was then carried again in the patrol to his residence, Tenth avenue between Eighteenth and Nineteenth, streets. "All his bruises were confined to the back part of his body, these bearing ev idence that he had been kicked. He stated also that three men, armed with pistols, went to his residence to see him and that to escape these, he jumped from a window and ran down the street, I lie same trio later overtaking him, assuring him thev meant no harm to him and after walking with him a short distance, knocking him down and beating him. He believes he was assaulted be cause he had stated he intended going to Palatka to work in a factory al that place, a branch of Corral, Wodiska & Co. Since the assault, it is understood he has changed his mind and desires to go south to either Key West or Havana to seek employment. None ot his wounds are of a serious nature." This is only one of scores of assaults which have occurred in Tampa during the past two weeks, and illustrates the difficulty the new factories in this city are encountering in their efforts to get their men out of Tampa. The strike of the Tampa cigarmakers is for the recognition of the union on the part of the Manufacturers Associa tion. And the assaults are made by those interested in holding the men in line and to prevent their working in "open shop". Open shops arc those that make no discrimination between union and non-union men. The factories that have come to Pa latka are of tlie open shop variety. Death of Mrs. J. H. Reese. A teleirram to Dr. E. S. Crill on Wed nesday forenoon from E. Perry Ross, announced the death of his mother, Mrs. J. H. Reese, at Nashville, lenn., on Monday. There were no particulars except to say that the funeral would be held at Pcnsacola on Wednesday. The Pensacola Evening News ol Tuesday had no further particulars ex cept that the funeral would take place at Christ church at 9:30 Wednesday and that the interment would be in the family lot at St. Johns cemetery. Mrs. Reese was a daughter of the late Gov. E. A. Perry, and was born in Pen sacola. In her young womanhood she was a social leader and a most brilliant woman. Her first husband was Dr. Ross, a prominent physician of Pensa cola, who died some years ago. Her only child is Mr. E. Perry Ross, a clerk in the East Florida Saving and Trust Co., and on whose account she had made Palatka her home during much of the pasl year. Mr. Ross was away on his vacation, and that he was with his mother at the time ol dealli is probable from the fact that he accompanied her body to Pensacola for the last sad rites. Sheriff Gets Front Room. In the assignment of office rooms in the new County Court House, Sheriff Kenner v was eivcn a back room. He didn't like it, though he moved in. The county commissioners took the front room. But this has been changed, and the sheriff's office will now front Lemon street and be just accross the hall from the county clerk's office. Sheriff Kennerly will move next week, and the sessions of the county commis sioners will hereafter be held in the room assigned to the grand jury. A Beautiful Street Light. The beautiful street lamp just instan ce by John T. Bond for M. Saucer, on central Lemon street, is a beauty and throws Ihe light for blocks around. This corner on Lemon street has long needed a street light so Mr. Saucer in connection with his beautifully lighted pool room, has made this improvement. John 1. bond ot the aunligm uigni ine Company, is agent for these famous store and street lamps and would be pleased to correspond with stores, towns and cities for lighting propositions. Every lamp is positively giiirantecd. Color ar.d AUer. Tbo wouitui at first sits down and waits for a husband; in the end she Its up and waits lor him. GETTING READY . FOR BIG BUSINESS Beach & Miller Line Preparing to Handle Big Winter Trade. On the 23d inst. the steamer Crescent will go on the ways for its annual over hauling, which will not require more than two weeks. In the meantime Mrs. Mary Scott Miller, general manager of the line, has chartered the Attaquin, a trim and comfortable freight and passen ger steamer to take the place of the Crescent so thai patrons of the line will in no way be discommoded. For nearly 30 years the B. & M. Line has had a daily line of boats between Crescent City and Jacksonville, and has been the only line furnishing a daylight service between Jacksonville, Palatka and Crescent City. The steamer Cres cent is one of the fastest, most comfort able passenger and freight steamers on the river, and the reliability and general excellence of its service has made this line a favorite with Palatka people. The line is not only a Florida, but a Putnam county concern, and for this, and the fact that its service is unexcell ed, it does and should receive a very large proportion of the river freight bus iness to and from this city. During the coming season the B. & M. Line will carry out a very large propor tion of the orange crop on Lake Cres cent, and intermediate river landings; it was to supply the demand for such a ser vice that the line was established, and from that time to the present it has al ways been a popular line with our or ange growers. In anticipation of an extra large busi ness this season, Mr. A. G. Brewer has been installed as agent at the head office of Ihe line in Crescent City. Mr. Brew er has had many years of experience in the transportation business and will no doubt prove a most valuable acquisition to the line. Palatka merchants and all who con tend for the principle of home patronage, should not only lake a special pride in this line, but show their appreciation for its reliable service by throwing their business to it, Killed by A. C. L. Train. The section foreman at Lundy station three miles south of Palatka on the A. C. L. R'y, discovered a colored man ly ing in the ditch alongside the railway track a mile south of Lundy station at 6 o'clock Tuesday morning. He report ed the matter to his railway superiors and to Sheriff Kennerly and immediate arrangements were made to bring the man to tins city. He was met on arrival bv Dr. Geo. E. Welch, and was still alive, though in a state of coma. Both the man s legs were broken and he was otherwise badly bruised. Blood was coming from his cars. His skull was fractured. I he man lived about an hour and a half after arrival in Palatka. Justice Marshall was notified and held an inquest, at which the testimony showed that the man was John Roberts General, 22 years of age and an employe of Campbell's turpentine still at Yelverton. He had left there on Monday and spent a part of the day at East Palatka where he played ball. His mother and step father live at Lundy and he had, it is thought, started to visit them. He is said to have been under the influence of liquor. Testimonv also showed that he was hit by a north bound freight train about midnight Monday. Ho was thrown some 15 feet, bounding into the ditch. Dr. W elch stated that death was caus ed by hemorrhage of brain caused by fracture of skull. The jury returned a verdict in accord ance with the facls. Automobile Badly Burned. The Buick auto owned by Luther Drakcford the Lemon street barber was badly injured by fire at midnight Tues day, and under circumstances that point to incendiarism. Luther had locked the machine in his garage at the corner of Rcid and Tenth Strs. and personally saw that it was all right. At midnight ihe night policeman saw fire in the ga rage, gave the alarm and notified the owner. The fire was extinguished be fore the machine was destroyed, though the top was burned up and the body badly injured. The mechanism appears lo be uninjured, but only the timely dis covery of the fire prevented a very seri ous loss to this worthy colored man. Luther is thoroughly satisfied that the machine was set afire. POMONA LETTER. W. M. Williams arrived Mondav night from Birmingham, Ala., for a visit with Mis. W. S. Middleton.

For Thirty Years a Winter Resident of Palatka. A telegram to Mr. S. J. Kennerly re ceived Monday morning announced that Mr. I. L. Ellwood died at his home in DcKalb, III , Sunday evening. The news occasioned no surprise here for it was known that for more than a week Mr. Ellwood had been in a most critical condition from paralysis. It is not the fact that Mr. Ellwood was one ol the nation's wealthiest men, with a fortune conservatively estimated at more than $50,000,000, that occasion ed genuine sorrow in Palatka over the news of his passing, but it was the fact that this city had lost a genial and kindly gentleman who for 30 years fa) maintained a winter home here, and who, with family, had enjoyed associa tion with Palatka people and who had ever been a staunch friend of the city. It is said that the death of Mrs. Ell wood some two month ago hastened Mr. FUlwood's demise. He never re covered from the blow. It is said that Mr. Ellwood began life as a poor man, and that the nucleus of his subsequent great fortune was his in vention of barbed-wire for fencing, which he long manufactured, and which interests were subsequently merged into the American Steel and Wire Co., in which he was largely inlerestcd up to some three years ago. Mr. Ellwood was a largo stock holder in the Chicago & Northwestern, and nu merous other great railroads, as well as in banking and other finance and trust companies. He owned several hundred ihousand acres of Texas ranch lands. Those who know him best say that his charily was of the kind that is "not puffed up," and that he gave liberally and without ostentation, or any kind of show. Mr. Ellwood became interested in Pa latka 30 years ago. In 1882 he built Ihe home now occupied by S. J. Kennerly. This he subsequently olfered for sale because of the location of the F'lorida Southern R'y track on Main street, when Mr. Kennerly became the pur chaser. Mr. Ellwood a year or two later purchased the land and erected his pres ent home on Madison street. Here Mr. and Mrs. Ellwood, surrounded by mem bers of their family, made their winter headquarters. He owned two magnificent boats, the launch "Doozie," an elegantly equipped and sumptuously furnished craft, and the smaller launch "Bug." In these Mr. Ellwood made frequent fishing and pleasure excursions to headwaters of the St. Johns, usually being accompanied by Capt. H. Y. Snow and other friends, or members of his family. Mr. Ellwood was advanced in years, being from 76 to 78 years old. He had1 had several mild symptoms of paralysis, the last one troubling him some on the oc casion of his last appearance in Palatka, the day of the bridge opening celebra tion, which he attended and enjoyed. INTERLACHEN ITEMS. The regular meeting of the W. C. T. U. was held in the new Reading and Rest Room, was well attended, and a good program was carried out. In the absence of the president, Mrs. S. J. Townscnd presided at this session. Rev. S. T. Townscnd was absent Sun day, having gone to fill his monthly ap pointment at Grove Park, and therefore there was no church service in the Con gregational church. Rev. Collier held services in the M. E. church. Miss Erma Wylie was quite seriously indisposed several days of last week and unable to discharge her school duties. During her illness Miss Winifred vvylie filled her place as teacher of the pri mary department. Miss Clarenc Frazer has accepted an appointment to teach the Satsuma school this year. Miss rrazer will have been the third teacher from Interlachcn to be located at Satsuma, Miss Coburn having been the first away back in the early nineties, and Miss Jean Baillic followed Miss Coburn. G. E. Gillctt is suffering from an at tack of illness and unable to be at his place of business. Mrs. Gillett, how ever, is keeping the store open, that customers may not be inconvenienced. W. B. Young returned Wednesday from a business trip in conneclion with his large turpentine interests. The office of the Palatka-Burbank Colony Company in Interlachcn has been equipped with up-to-date furnish ings and is now open. Homeseekcrs are already coming in, and a party enter tained at the Lake View Sunday may be taken as representative of the territory reached by the advertisements of this company. The party numbered eight, and represented five separate stales, among them Washington, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Illinois. On Tuesday another party of eight were registered at the Lake View, and these came from still different sections of our country. A call meeting of the Sunshine Socie ty was held at the home of Mrs. Anna M. Brewer on Monday afternoon. Miss Kate Lucas Returns. Misses Kate Lucas and Daisy Livings ton, who have been spending a month in New York and Philadelphia in the interest of Miss Lucas' millinery busi ness, reached home last Friday. Miss Lucas tells the News that she has made heavier purchases this season than ever before and that just now all hands are so busy in unpacking and making ready that she has been unable to fix upon a date for the fall opening.
