"The attention of sheriffs and tax

gilt enterprise, or any person or estab

"'This department notes that various
establishments are publicly announcing
gifts and prizes to be given to purchasers-

dolls, biin-eles, etc., through a plan of
issiiinjr tickets to purchasers, and by
other methods. Everv person or es

to collect and report such tax to this
'"Other phases of business which, in
the opinion of this department are sub
ject to this tax, are the oilers of certain
prizes for the collection of so man3- soap

'"it is known that cigar wheels and
similar devices are being extensively
operated in the State. All such enter
prises are subject to the regulations of
section l.i, schedule J, and sheriffs and

is required 13- law."

I saw him first in the parlors of the
Youug Ladies' School, which I attend -
j ed iu Jacksonville. He entered tho
room with several other students, was
taller than the rest, ami attracted my
attention at once His face was pale
and thin;a pair of keen, darke3"es, look
ed out from beneath heavj- brows; his
nse was prominent ;too large, I thought,
to look w ell ;a broad, thin liped mouth,
and a square chin completed the con
tour of his face. He was neatly, though
not fastidious-, dressed, and stood
firmly and with dignit3'. I noticed par
ticularly his hair and hiB smile. Tho
former black in color, fine in quality,
and parted distressingly straight; the
latter expansive and expressive. In later
years this smile has been the subject of
considerable comment, but the well
rounded cheeks of Mr. Bryan now check
its onward march, and no one has seen
the real breadth of the smile who did
not see it in the early da3 S. Uron no
occasion a heartless observer was benid
to remark, "That man whispers in bis
