Rochester (N. Y.) Express. ICE BY ELECTRIC PROCESS niggers rode in a separate coach from the whites and I sure like it that way too. Daddy and mother met me at the train and such a crowd of people. More to meet the train than there were to get off. A friend of theirs was there to meet me and take my trunk and us to our place of abode. "Now I am well acquainted with the town. It is a real dream. The Royal palms, Royal poinsiannia trees, the waxy leaved camphor and rubber trees, the mango trees, the sagp palms, cocoanut palms and the boga villa vines are all so beautiful. Then to think the next day we rode out to see friends in an open summer car and I had to carry an umbrella over me to keep off the boiling sun. Makes me realize "how many hundred miles I am removed from the snow and ice which I do not enjoy. "The beautiful ever changing Tampa bay is a source of enjoyment to me any time. On Sunday after I came Charles Naber and family took us to Passe Grille on the Gulf of Mexico and St. Petersburg Beach. That was the 21st of January. The gulf was seething with people in bathing. We ate our picnic supper on the beach at the sun set and it was splendid. I love a sunset of the north, but this was the most wonderful I had ever seen. The whole sky was ablaze with the scarlet hues of old king Sol. WTe have been fishing two different days, but there has been no gpod fishing since the storm last fall only out on the Gulf. They think the fish will soon begin to come in. Thousands of fish were killed during the storm and TWENTY YEARS AGO TODAY EVENTS AND HAPPENINGS IN FAIRMOUNT A DECADE AGO AS TOLD BY THE FAIRMOUNT NEWS, AND GLEANED FROM THE FILES OF THE PAPER FOR PRESENT DAY REMINISCENT READERS. large fish called porpoise come in to feed on the mullet fish. The porpoise come from the Gulf. Mullets can't be caught with a hook. They can only be seined or speared. We took the steamer to Tampa, 22 miles, and enjoyed the South Florida fair. It had the Indiana State Fair beat all together. The trip there and back was wonderful, sharks and porpoise following all the way. "Now do come and see how fine it is to be tanned black as a nigger in j February and see how fine it is to go to an orange gpove and grape fruit grove and get all you can carry home free of charge as we did. Then if you love to fish come over and bait ! my hooks for me for I am afraid of j the crawley little fiddlers we use for fish bait. They look like craw dads or crabs anil I won't handle them, so I'm afraid I'll never catch many fish." VIVIAN. Gifted Hebrew Physician. At the close of the Twelfth and beginning of the Thirteenth centuries there flourished in Rome Emanuel Zi front, Jewish physician, poet, astronomer and mathematician, says the Medical Record, quoting II. Pollcllnlco. He is believed to have been on friendly terms with Dante and even to have suggested to him. In part at ieast, his great trilogy, by writing a poem of the same scope the journey of a Jew through hell and heaven, accompanied by the prophet Daniel. The name of this prototype poein was "Mechobe rot h." Elmer Hiatt has recently disposed of a fine lot of pointer pup dogs at fancy prices. One of them he shipped to San Antonio, Texas. The Allen & Howard horse sale was a success. A large number of horses and mules were sold at fair prices. Quite a crowd was in attendance. The American express office has been moved into the building formerly occupied by The Dillen Sisters as a millinery store on North Main street. The Bible class of the Congregational church will meet on Thursday night of this week instead of Friday on account of the lecture at the Friends church. The lesson will be the whole of the prophecy of Hosea. In the injunction proceedings of James F. Life vs. The Fairmount j Mining company, M. D. Robinson and ' the St. Mary's Torpedo company, the restraining! order against Robinson I was dissolved and continued as against j the first named defendant. This injunction was asked for to prevent the shooting of a gas well. Mrs. Johnathan Morris of Westfield is the guest of John Flanagan and wife. The Young Men's Prayer Band met in a business session last night and discussed the advisability of organizing a Bible Training class to better fit the young men and women for professional work in the coming) revival j services, and a committee was ap pointed to visit the Young Ladies Prayer Band and each of the churches to solicit names of those who will attend the class.

Bos- ton Evening Transcript. GETTING OUT OF DEBT It is an encouraging report that the director of the war finance corporation makes concerning the liquidation that is in progress. Large sums loaned by the corporation already are being repaid, indicating that producers are paying) their debts. Power to repay debts is a most hopeful indication of business recovery. Sioux City (la.) Journal. THE NEXT HOUSE There is every cause for belief that the next national House of Representatives to be chosen next fall will be Republican. Special elections that have been held to fill vacancies since the general elections 15 months ago bear out this expectation. There have been manifestations of a slight but nothing has developed to show J that the people have wholly forgotten the conditions that prompted them to repudiate the Wilson Democracy, as fe great political party was never repudiated before in time xof peace in this country. Portland (Me.) Express. A TARIFF INSTANCE Knives are good and needful things, though now and then put to evil uses. especially by our citizens from Latin V"V . . . M. ? t-urope wno are nisioncauy aaept n the unfriendly employment of keen edged implements. There is no room to question, however, that knives table and jack and various other sorts are necessary to us as a people and should be kept within the reach of slender purses; but whether we should let Germany make them for us be- cause she can make them cheaper is t. v a question on which there is division of opinion. Facts have been laid before congressional committees wrestling with the tariff showing that knives made by German artisans earning wages of 8 cents, gpld, a day are brought into the United States at a cost of 12 cents apiece and sold to American consumers for as much as $4, that be ing something like the price of the American product as made by workmen at wages of $4 to $5 a day, after the several profits of manufacturers j and distributors have been added to it. This is an extreme case, but it is clear as daylight that we shall make no more knives in this country unless the tariff equalizes the cost of the domestic and foreign products; and there are endless other manufactured commodities in the same class. The question therefore is whether we shall give up manufacturing and buy uiuau uic i uties we uem, paying i therefor in raw materials and foods? ! This is the free trade contention, but an objection to it is that all experience shows that whenever our own factories have been closed by competition from outside the foreign maker charges us all the traffic will bear and prices go kiting) skyward to altitudes never reached before. A foreein monopoly is quite as heartless as one I ' j j j j j ! SUNNY FLORIDA LAND OF PLENTY Delicious Fruits, Delightful Bathing and Elegant Fishing Attractive to Tourists from North. Mrs. Mary Gardner received a letter from Mrs. Vivian Thurston of Chicago, who is spending a couple of months with her parents in St. Petersburg, Fla. Mrs. Thurston was MHss Vivian Henley prior to her marriage, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. L. Henley. At one time Mrs Thurston was connected with the Fairmount News in the local news department and the letter was kindly loaned to the News so that the rest of the News family might enjoy it. "Shall I take you on a trip from Chicago to St. Petersburg? Well, I'll trv it on a sheet of paper. When -- - - ft Chicago it was quite cold and lc5"' Great pieces of ice were float ing down the Chicago river and on the great Lake Michigan. Stopped over at Cincinnati and had the porter call me at 5 in the morning for my train, "The Southland," at 7 a. m. Train from Chicago arrived 20 minutes late so we crossed the Ohio river just at the peep of dawn. Crossed the rolling country of Kentucky into the blue grass region and on into Tennessee through a downpour of rain. In the blue grass country I saw some of the finest herds of sleek, fat cattle I have ever seen. Now and then we passed fine old southern homesteads, large white houses with fire places at either end and wood smoke curling from the broad chimneys. We passed what had been remnants of civil war days where the house had gone to rack and ruin and only the chimney was left standing as a relic of past history. In many of the old homesteads I saw "The old oaken bucket, the iron bound bucket. The moss-covered bucket that hung) in the well." "They were wonders to me. Nigger shacks were in abundance with dozens of piccannies poking their heads out of the doors and windows to wave at the train. Tobacco barns were more numerous than stock bams, a condition unheard of in Indiana. Foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains me more numerous as we rode . MO farther south into Kentucky, iney covered with tall pines and scrub were oas j saW tJie trail of the lone- some Pine," a tall pine at the end of a very steep long trail on the very tip top of a mountain. By the time we got to Richmond, Ky.. it required another engine to help pull the heavy train up the mountains. Up some of tne highest mountains the engines - . just puffed and puffed and movea along in a slow "turkey trot." The scenery was gorgieous. So many sparkling streams tumbled down the mmiTitjiris into the beautiful blue Tennessee river- All along the river were huge boulders which had fallen down the mountains over which the in wended its way. Huge High cliffs "above made me wonder where I'd land if they should fall on the train. I was the only woman in my coach from Atlanta, Ga., to Jackson- ville, Fla. We passed Cumberland Gap, made famous during the civil war. Two mountain ranges are divided by a level stretch of iand. It was majestic The rivers of the south, usually so blue, were turned a beautiful emerald green. They looked as though they would abound in fish. Came into Atlanta at. eleven o'clock that night. Had the finest train service mil alongt the way. At Waycross, Ga., I saw the first natural growing palm trees I had ever seen. Arrived at Jacksonville on schedule time with only a short wait for my train, then across the state of Florida I came. I was so warm I just puffed and fanned. I sure shed my wraps. Palmettos and pines, scrubby looking; cows and razor back hogs were in evidence I all throuch Florida, as well as oodles of niggers. From Cincinnati on the Method, Long Tried Out in Hotels, Restaurant, and Ships, Soon to Be Universal. Now that iceless refrigeration has been simplified to the point where it is suitable for the home. It is safe to predict that it will not be long before it will be within . the reach of even those of very modest pocket I books, and all need of bothering with the Iceman, with his pick and tongs, will be gone. The ice used on our tables has long been the product of electric refrigeration, although the mechanism was not located in our own homes, says the Philadelphia North American. Hotels, restaurants and passenger boats have used the electric process because it is efficient, sanitary and convenient. Electricity does not Immediately and directly produce the freezing temperature, but merely provides the motive power to condense certain chemicals which are the actual refrigerants. In the process of condensation these chemicals vaporize or "boll" and absorb the heat from the surrounding air. The machinery by which condensation and vaporization is produced was formerly large and expensive, and It has taken continuous experimentation to reduce It to a point where It Is practical for household use. The process has been similar to the transition of locomotive power from the large and clumsy railroad steam engine to the smaller automobiles, with their comparatively simple mechanism. The complex machinery had to be refined to a point where it could be produced cheaply and operate on a small scale. Electric refrigeration has now almost reached the jitney class. It will soon be considered essential in all our kitchens. FOR SALE FOR SALE One 5-passengier car. M. V. Hunt. FOR SALE Marion fence. Price right. Oscar Loy & Sons.
