Why You Should Come to Florida---And Stay Here



By W. A. McRAE

Commissioner of Agriculture, State of Florida


Florida has more seacoast than any
other state, which gives us delight-
fully .pleasant breezes and pure air,
seafoodr-in abundance, and access to
the marketsiof the world by water.
Florida mines 80 per cent of the
total output of phosphate in the
United States,.
Florida has a greater rainfall than
any other state, making abundant
moisture accessible to the farmer.
We have more surface water in riv-
ers and lakes tr.an any other state ex-
cept Minnesota, giving us fresh water
supply. cool breezes in summer, and
teripering the winds in the winter.
We have more growing days than
ainy other state.
We produce more turpentine than
any other state.
We produce more Fullers earth
than all the other states combined.
Floi ida has the largest pecan grove
in the world.
Florida leads all the states in the
average crop values per acre.
Florida has 75,000,000 fruit and
nut-bearing trees.
There is enough lumber standing
in ;he forests of Florida to build
homes for the people in 20 of our
largest cities.
Florida grows a greater variety of
products than any other state and
can grow more crops on the same
land in a single season than any other
state.
Florida still has bear, deer, wild
turkey, quail, ducks, squirrels and
other game and 650 different kinds of
fiah swimrming in her waters. It is
the hunter's Garden of Eden and the
fisherman's paradise.
We ca 1 go fishing, surf bathing or
pick strawberries in January.
We have many of the largest and
most beautiful springs in the world.
Some of them send up 7500 barrels
of water per minute, or a daily flow
of over 10.000,000 barrels.
Florida has 4158 miles of graded
earth roads; 664 miles of asphalt; 483
miles of brick; 35 miles of concrete;
12i3 miles of rock, oil treated; 538
miles of shell; 1944 miles of sand
clay: a grand total of 9224 miles, and
more being built.
There are within her borders 10,-
000,000 acres of red clay subsoil land,
and 10,000,000 more acres of sand and
muck land. making at least 20,000,000
of the 37,700,000 acre area of the
state suitable for growing something.
Less than 2,000,000 acres of this has
been touched by the plow. Better buy
some of it while it is plentiful and
cheap.


No state in the union has better
natural advantages for growing poul-
try and livestock than Florida.
In Florida you can be a general
farmer, citrus grower, peach grower,
truck grower, fig grower, grape grow-
er, pecan grower, or you can special-
ize in poultry, hogs, cattle, sheep or
goats. Come down and take your
choice.
We can grow some kind of feed for
livestock and poultry in every month.
Sunstroke to man or animal is rarer,
compared with other states.
We have the lowest death rate of
all states in the union.
We ship an average of six cars of
fruit and vegetables every hour in the
year.
Florida is the natural home of the
bee, and much honey is shipped in
car lots.
With a mild climate and plenty of
grass, Florida is especially adapted to
dairying.
No place on earth can grow an
orange or grapefruit with as fine
flavor as Florida.
Seven thousand five hundred cars
of watermelons and 300,000 crates of
cantaloupes have been shipped ouE of
Florida in a single season.
Florida farm land increases in val-
ue from 15 to 18 per cent per annum.
Florida is as large as Maine, New
Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts,
Rhode Island and Connecticut. Those
states have 15,000,000 people. Flor-

0. P. KROH, TREASURER C. E. KROH, PRESIDENT ASHER PETER, SEC'Y.
MANAGER OF
NORTHERN OFFICE SOUTHERNN OFFICE
SUITE 1026 SCARRITT BUILDING OVER FIRST NAT. BANK
KANSAS CITY, MO. Interstate Development Company ORLANDO, FLORIDA

INCORPORATED



Kansas City, Mo., May 5, 1922.



Edward Kuehn M.D.
Palmyra, N.J.

Dear Sir:

It has been another good year in Florida, the Florida farmer has
received good prices for his crops, citrus fruits, strawberries, winter
vegetables, in fact, all Florida crops have brought good prices, and
Florida is prosperous.

Still the slump in land prices in the north has kept the land
values in Florida from advancing as much as they are due to advance, and
lands can still be had there at far less than their actual value, and now
is the logical time to invest in Florida.

There is no controversy about the winter climate of Florida be-
ing the best in the U. S., many northerners however seem to think the
summers are excessively hot, such is not a fact however; Florida is a de-
lightful place in which to live the year around, and we would like to
convince you along this line by taking you down there in May, June or July
and let you see for yourself.

We have at this time, some of the best land bargains in the
state, and while we make a specialty of wholesale tracts, no matter what
sized tract, or what purpose land you might be interested in, we have a
bargain to show you, and if desired will make the terms of payment very
easy.

Now can't you make a trip to Orlando, Orange County with us and
let us show you one of the best sections of Florida? If convenient come
by way of Kansas City and go with us from here, if this is out of your
way, meet us at our Orlando office, and we will guarantee you a good time
and show you the cheapest land in the U. S.

Why not live where conditions are most favorable? There are
hundreds of families from the north now living in central Florida, and
almost invariably their verdict is, that they would rather live there
than any place they have ever seen.

You owe it to yourself and your family to go down there and see
the country, talk to these people who have been there for some time, and
we predict that you too will then want to locate in that much favored
state.
Very truly yours,

INTERSTATE DEVELOPMENT COMPANY.

Thos. E. Will,

Dear Mr. Will:-

Your advertisement, anarticle in the South
Florida Developer, interested us very greatly. We have given
considerable space An the past to articles on the Everglades
and are keeping a constant watch on the developments in that
wonderful country. In view of what we have published and of
what we will publish, in the future, with relation to the
t. Evergladeswe believe it would be to your interest to give us
some advertising along the line of the one attached hereto.
In fact this one is very excellentonly it may requite more
space than you care to use since our rates are somewhat higher
than those of newspapers, being at the rate of 15 cents per
line, $2.10 per inch per insertion.

The writer, has for some time been
Anxious to make a trip into your country and -ive you a special
story on what he sa,; but has not found thea me required to
do this. Since reading your article it is very evident that
you are in a position to give us a very practical article for
) publication in the Farm and Live Stock Record and we willbe
pleased to receive same from youat your convenience, whether
i wor not you give us your advertising. Of course, are are suf-
ficiently human to appreciate any business that comes our way
and especially when we are cooperating to make that business
productive of results for others.

Under separate over we are sending you copy
of Farm and Live Stock Record for May in which you will find
an article,by our Mr. E.V. Blackman,of Miami,on page 6,and it
is likely that our June number will also contain something with
reference to the Everglades.

As we go to press the 1st week in every month
it will be necessary to receive your advertising order together
tith "copy" as well as any article you may see fit to send us,
not later thai the beginning of the last week in the month.

Awaiting your reply with interest, we beg to
remain,
Yours very tr_

Dear Mr. Will --

Your letter of the 18th has been received during
Mr. Nye's absence in the North, and we are sorry to say we
are unable to explain how he happened to use the map which
appears with your article, instead of the correct one. Of
course it was unintentional, and as Mr. Nye was so anxious to
make this an authentic and specific article we are sure he
will correct it in a Ifture issue of the paper.
We are sending you a copy of the Journal witih our
compliments, and thank you very much for your entnusiastic
remarks, which will be passed on to Mr. Nye.

Yours very truly,

Dr. Thomas E. Will,
Okeelanta, Florida.

Dear Doctor Will:

The last report I had from you regarding the status of
Fruitcrest holdings is dated December 6, 19&9. In this letter you stated
that we have 400 acres in Section 27 of which deeds have been received,
recorded, and entrusted to Fruitcrest trustees. In addition, nearly 40
acres more have been paid for, leaving about 200 acres of the 640 acres
yet to pay for, the price being a little over $4,000.

I have written you several times for up-to-date infor-
mation on this matter, but hafe had not acknowledgment to my letters. I
know just exactly how busy you are, but I wish, Doctor, you would do me
the favor of writing me how this matter stands at this time. I am some-
what wQrried at the manner in which this thing has been dragging along,
and I would like to know whether deeds have been given for the three
tracts which I have purchased and if so, if it is not possible to trans-
fer these deeds in my name,

I note with interest your regular advertisements in the
"Developer", and I am willing to contribute one or two dollars in con-
tinuing this advertising. You're doing good work and I hope your efforts
are bringing results.

May I not have the pleasure of hearing from you promptly
regarding the above matter?

Sincerel yours,

Olathe, Kansas, May 22, 1922'.
Mr. T.N.Creveling,
Lauderdale, Florida.

Dear Sir:

I have been wondering if you are in the real estate business,
in Florida, and if so, if you cannot give me some idea of the develop-
ment in the everglade country, if more drainage ditches are being dug,
and if the land that lays from ten to twenty miles sough of the lake
is or is likely to become valuable.

Someone told me that a railroad has been built across Florida
south of the lake, and that Automobile roads have been built across
also, south of the lake, is that true.

Are people living on the land south of the lake, and have towns
been built south of the lake, and if so, how far south of the lake
has the surface water been taken off the land, so that it would be
safe to try to live on the land.

After the water is drained off the land, if it is not cultivated,
does any growth spring up that is detrimental to the land, or make it
difficult to clear or break up.

I have one tract of ten acres, which I believe joins the Miami
Canal, and is about 12 miles south of the lake, then I have another
track that is about 6 or 8 miles south east of that one and it is
about half way between the Miami canal and the next one east.

I have kept the taxes paid on these tracts, but the taxes are
pretty high, unless there is actual improvement going on, in the way
of drainage, roads and schools, taxes are charged for all three
propositions.
If uou find time I shall be glad to have you write me, and if
there is any prospect of selling these tracts, if you are in the
business, I shall be glad if you will tell me something about the
value and if any such tracts are selling, what is the usual price
etc. I am asking quite a good deal, of you, but trust this will not
be an imposition, and that you can make a commission by selling these
tracts for me. Yos /
Yours /erv) trulJr.21~
