the fun will be at its height.
Yesterday was a day for gar-
dening aud putting ont shrubbery.
The dry weather did not seem to
retard the work in the least.
The members of the Christian
j church are discussing the advisa-
bility, or rather the necessity, of
i building a new church this year.
One of the worst needed things
in this part of the state this year
is a canning factory. But we do
j not see much disposition to build
i one.
The last we heard from Collec-
tor Apperson was about 8 o'clock
last night. He was then almost
gone, with no hope that he could
i live till morning.
Considerable cotton still comes

We have not interviewed the
delegates from this coiuty to the
republican state convention, but

gation we judge the convention
was strong for Harrison.
Again we want to remind the
Baptists of Gainesville and the
surrounding country that if they
have any idea of purchasing the
Addington property for a Baptist

first time in America, will be
produced by the eminent and ro-
mantic actor, Clay Clement, with
his superior eompauy in support
at the opera house Friday even-
ing. Mr. Clement is acknowl-
edged to be the leading romantic
actor of the day, and comes most
highly indorsed by both press
aud public, his tour thus far this
continual ovation. The play is
one that is of a sombre nature to
the thoughtless; still in very truth
it is one of the most intense and
exciting dramas ever written.
The refrain of the" Bella" through-
out the play sends a thrill through
the audience when they realize the
terrible import to Mathias that
sink deep into their souls.
Mr. Clement's company consists
of a goodly number of capable
players and the scenic and me-
chanical effects are of the most
elaborate nature.

rival of our immense stock.

How Can We ?
Every now and then some of
our friends come to us with this
kind of plea: ''We want you to
favor this policy or this man, be-
cause your friends do."
Nobody loves to please friends
better than we do, but hardly an
issne comes up without us having
friends on each side of i(. We

ourselves. However, it is getting
to be an idea that newspapers
ought not to have any decided
opinions. It has come to be con-
sidered bad business policy.

Republloan Convention.
The republicans of Cooke coun-
ty met in convention at the court-
house Tuesday evening, March 1.
F. L. Cleaves was eleoted chatt-
man and W. G. Wofford secre-
tary. The object of the conven-
tion was to select delegates to the
state convention at Austin,
March 8.
The following delegates were
elected: W. G. Wofford, F. L.
I Cleaves, W. L Pierce, B. M. Strat-
j ford, H. J. Hendricks, 0. C. San-
The delegates were not in-
structed on any office. Those at-
tending the state convention
were empowered to cast the vote
of absent delegates.

when the curtain rose, and the re-
porter deems it but fair to pre-
sume that a majority of the people
present went in the same mind
that he did, viz: that they were
going to witness an amateur pei-
formance that would be enjoya-
ble, more because the actors and
actresses were their own friends
than for any other reason.
Before the first act was over
this idea left the mind and the
audience became convinced that
the actors and actresses deserved
attention, not because they were
friends and engaged in a good
work, but because they were giv-
ing evidence of real talent and
were giving a play fully as well as
any professionals that have visit-
ed Gainesville during the season.
Mrs. Gallia, as Sierra, a typical
free American girl, a soubrette
part, was repeatedly encored for
her cute acting, and when she
sang she brought down the house.
The best the writer can say for her
is to repeat the expressions he
heard from numerous members of
the audience, a fair sample of
which is: "Better than Lizzie
Evans;" "Better than Katie Put-
man;" "Better than Patti Rosa."

Messrs. Lipman Bros., Savannah,
Dear S'rs—I would like to add
my testimony to the almost mira-
culous effect of P. P. P. in the case
of Mary Ingrabam, a woman liv-
ing on my place; she had a con-
stant cough, sore throat, debility,
etc-, emanciated to a degree that
she was unable to get out of bed
no use was present j u ad" Taken the ruinous
so-called blood medicines without
the least effect, until being put
under the P. P. P., she imme-
diatelely began to improve and is
now in as good health as ever in
her life. You can refer to me at
any time as to the effects of P. P.
P., in the foregoing case.
Yours truly,
Samuel Cherry.

Monticello, Fla., Jan. 21,1800.
For the last eight years I have
been in bad health, suffering with
malaria, rheumatism, dysdepsia
and dropsy; my digestion was bad
and my hair all came out—in fact
I was nearly a wreck. I had taken
kidney and blood medicines,which
did me no good. When I began
taking P. P. P. about threa months
ago I was as weak as a child. I
have only taken four bottles(small
size), and today I am a well man
and my hair has "come again." I
cannot recommend P. P. P. too
highly. W F WARE,

Preserve the Records.
We fear our county officials will
rest in security until some of
these times the county's most val-
uable records will be destroyed
by fire. Then they will wake up
and build a fire proof office for
them after it is too late. Ihe fact
that our old records have been
spared so long ought to make us
more anxious to preserve them.
A few thousand dollars now would
place them in safety. No amount
of money would replace them if

Height of Cruelty.
Nervous women seldom receive
the sympathy they deserve.
While often the pictures of health
they are constantly ailing. To
withhold sympathy from these un-
fortunates is the height of cruelty.

fluttering pain in side, weak ]
and hungry spells and final-,

sion, choking, smothering and

Paul Gallia has appeared in this
oity in many amateur plays and it
has been customary to say in
speaking of him: "Everybody
knows Paul and that he always
does h's part well." Monday
night proved that everybody did
not know Paul or half of his ca-
pability as an actor. He eclipsed
himself in "A Box of Monkeys"
and played not like an amateur
but a professional.
Mr. Ed Davis, a bashful Eng-
lishman much in love with Lady
Guineveer, looked and acted the
part in* a manner that astonished
even his best friends, who expect-
ed much of him. The best criti-
cism we know to make of bis act-
ing is that the audience wa9 per-
fectly satisfied and said it could
not bave been done better.

without saying that Max Hirsch,
who attended to the making up
of the participants in the play,
