Mr. Those. E. Will,t
Okeelanta, Florida.

Dear Sir:

Yours of August 1, with oopy of letter to the U. S,
Department of Agriculture, iduly received. These problems
should be presented to the Florida Agricultural Experiment
Station, at Gainesville, Plorida,

Would suggest that all' mucu.ok_ &an, particularly when
well drained, provides excellent pas~ure. There is no chemical
difference in the grasses named when grown on muck land, and
on other land. Maiden ane, a native grass, is an of the
best romge grasigr, containing a hi.gher.Baroentage
of P (a flesh former) than othar grasses.

I inclose ye. a oopy of an address "Fora IPalants
on Florida Drained Soils"; and send your letter, w3iEha
oopy of this letter to Prof. John M. Soott, Animal Husbandman,
Plorida Agricultural Experiment Station, Gainesville, Florida.


Yours truly,


s/-ate
State Ohemist.

Mr. Tnos. E. Will,

Okeelanta, Fla.

Dear Mr. Will:

Your letter of recent date addressed to
Capt. R. E. Rose, State Chemist and a copy of a letter
sent to the U. S. Dept. of Agrl. have been referred
to me by the State Chemist for reply.

In regard to the value of these different
grasses for both beef and pork production will say that
I believe you will find the beat of these grasses will
be maiden cane, St. Lucie grass, Para grass and per-
haps St. Augustine grass. Some of the others you
mention I am not sufficiently acquainted with to say
much about their feeding value.


Another grass you might add to this list
is Bermuda grass. All these grasses I have mention-
ed when they make a good growth and good firm sod will
be found quite satisfactory for both beef and milk
production, but they will not be found very satisfact-
ory for pork production unless supplemented with other
feeds. I would not advise any farmer or stockman to
try to raise 1agas on green-feed alone. It is quite
important that they be supplied with a liberal quant-
ity of grain for fattening and getting ready for mark-
et in the shortest time possible.

You will also find that almost any of
these grasses will grow on muck soil or any other
fertile soil and will make a rapid and rank growth
and during the rainy season will be what is termed
"washy", or in other words, cattle will not fatten
on them as rapidly at that season of the year as
during a dry period.

"a


P The Maiden Cane is, as the State Chemist
has told you, in perhaps one of the richest grasses
we have here in Florida. This is especially true
during the early growth of the grass. As it becomes
P older and more mature it contained more fibrous matter
and is not so rich in protein as in its early growth.

In regard to insects it is quite possible
that during certain periods of the year mosquitoes,
flies, etc. cause a good deal of annoyance to cattle
and during this time they will not put on as much
flesh not will the cows give as much milk as when they
are not annoyed by flies and mosquitoes.

There is no goojdremedy known at the pres-
ent time that will keep flies off cows unless applied
quite frequently. In fact, it may be necessary to
apply it as frequently as 3 or 4 times a week. This
adds considerably to the expense and under a good
many conditions it is doubt-ful if it will pay for the
trouble of applying it. s

It is quite likely as you get your land ::
betteL,.rained and there are larger areas of drained
land there will be fewer flies and other insects to
> annoy your livestock.

I believe there are good prospects that
the Everglades will be a good prosperous country some
day. I have thought this for several years. The
main cause for the slowdevelopment along that line
is due very largely to two factors; one is the lack
of drainage and the other is the price at which a i
good ideal of the land is held. I believe it is
true that the experience of those who have been in
the Everglades in the past 5 or 10 years has been
that it has taken from 3 to 5 years to get the land
in condition to produce anything like satisfactory
crops. Therefore, by the time a man pays the
price asked for the land and then waits from 3 to 5
years to get it in shape for producing good crops
it makes the land pretty expensive for him.

If it were possible to keep the price
of land down to the very limits so that the buyer could
afford to spend 3 or 4 years getting the land in shape
I believe there would be a quicker development.


__M











A.

Antoher point that should be taken into
^ consideration is that there is no qujck rqturns from
livestock_farming that is sometT es possible from
raising vegetables. It usually takes from 3 to 1 2 i
years to put a livestock farm on a good paying basis, "
1 and the reason that there are a good many failures
in the livestock business in Florida is because those
promoting the business have expected returns in from
0, to 90 or 120 days, '

Yours very truly,

Dr. Thomas F. Will,

Okeelanta, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:

I am just in receipt today of the specimens which you sent from

the Glades and have looked over them with interest'. I am perfectly

familiar with them all except what you call "camel corn," which rather

puzzles me. Can you tell me something more about this, or, if possible,

send me a flowering head of it when it blooms. I am also in doubt as to

the identity of what you call "water grass," which is apparently a

Paspalum. I would like to see some heads of this when it is in bloom

and have notes of your experience with it.

S.Yours very truly,

FORAGE-CROP INVESTIGATIONS

August 5, 1919.

Dr. Thomas E. Will,

Okeelanta, Fla.

Dear Dr. Will:

I am in receipt of your letter of August 1, which I have read
carefully. Until experimental work has been done in the Everglades,
any expression of opinion as to their possibilities can only be based on
similar areas elsewhere and on what experience has been gotten by the
few farmers on the Glades. I have not been able to learn of arl large
subtropical areas of muck in other countries, so that our judgment must
be based on the wholly insufficient amount of experience in this country.

My own opinion, after repeated visits to the Everglades and to
other reclaimed muck areas, is that the bulk of the Everglades,
particularly the brown fibrous peat soils, should be devoted primarily
to pasture grasses and livestock first, because I believe that this is
practically the only way by which such an enormous arda can be profitably
utilized, and second, because in permanent grass the shrinkage of the
muck will be reduced very greatly, and perhaps entirely obviated that is,
the enormous mass of grass roots and grass stubble, together with the
Smanure returned, should keep adding vegetable matter perhaps rapidly
enough to compensate for the shrinkage. Bear in mind that these brown fib-
rous peat soils consist of 85 per cent or more of vegetable matter,
and this must be conserved, as otherwise there could be only one end to the
constant shrinkage which goes on particularly on the cultivated land.
As to handling livestock on muck soils, there is little experience, and
there may be some serious problems. It would be a relatively simple matter
for a man having an area of muck and an area of flatwoods adjoining to
handle his livestock, but the handling of them on muck throughout the
season I am not so sure about.

As regards pasture forages, there is a considerable list which
I believe will continue to be highly productive on the brown fibrous peat
without the use of fertilizer. I must admit, however, that a good many
agronomists believe it out of the question to get satisfactory production
for any length of time on the brown fibrous peats without the addition of
mineral fertilizers, namely, phosphorus and potash. I hold to the contrary
opinion, with the proper grasses that is, grasses adetel to such
conditions because the Glades were entirely covered with vegetation,
largely saw grass, which grew luxuriantly without any artificial adding
of potash or phosphorus.





Thos,E.Will 8/5/19 3



In the light of our present knowledge all of the following grasses
should be useful: Napier grass, Para grass, C(arib grass, Berumda grass and
its various varieties, St. Augustine grass, Paspalun dilatatwu (probably
the "water-grass" or your list), maidencane, Rhodes grass, and doubtless
others. Maidencana is of course hard to eradicate, but it is so valuable
a grass that I believe any one in the livestock business should continue
to utilize areas naturally covered with maidencane. In addition to these
perennial grasses there are many annual forage =rops whii-. I believe will
succeed, including velvet beans, dasheens, dwarf Essex rape, soy beans,
. beggarwa3a and probably others.

As to whether the feeding value of forages grown on muck is as
great as of those grown on real soil we have no data to answer* I have
no doubt, however, that they will be amply nutritious.

As to finishing cattle or haos, I fear this will necessitate some
concentrated feeds, including corn, perhaps velvet beans, perhaps cottonseed
meal. It might even prove most profitable to grow only feeders on the
Glades and to send them elsewhere for finishing; that question is one of the
economic livestock questions on which only ample, preferably experimental
data, can answer.

You of course realize that the general idea of utilizing the
Glades for forage and livestock rather than for high-priced crops like
truck:and others, will not justify as high a capitalization of the land
as many people would desire.

You understand that all that I have written above are in the main
opinions based on my observations and the relatively small amount of
experience of farmers. The need of the Glades is an ample body of
fiperimental work, so that their real productive value for different types
Sof crops can be definitely ascertained, and in this connection also the
relation of the type of farming to the shrinkage of the muck.

Your inquiries concerning insects I am sending to Dr. L. 0.
Howard, of the Bureau of Entomology.

Yours very truly,

.gist in Chare
Agrostologist in Charge.

HOG RAISING, PACKING AND CANNING

AS AN INVESTMENT.


INCOME
The question of income is important and vital to all of us.
The income of the great majority depends entirely upon their
individual efforts. In case of financial reverses, bad business
conditions, broken health or old age these incomes may be i
W' cut off.
We owe it to ourselves as well as to those dependent upon
us to provide for ourselves, if possible, an income which will
Snot be affected by any of the above conditions.

Even a considerable amount of muney invested in bonds.
or mortgages, or like securities yields but small return. To
the investor having but a few hundred dollars it means prac-
tically nothing. How, then, can he invest his money so as to
provide for himself and his family a permanent income large
enough to be of material assistance but n,' "mntingent upon d .L,. ---
his ability, health, energy or upon business conditions.

INVEST IN HOGS

The most impressive thing about hogs is the price you pa--
your butcher for pork chops, bacon and ham.
Somewhere back of these prices are some mighty big
profits.
It has been customary to credit these to the packer, the
middleman and the retailer.
As a matter of fact, the producer is the one who should
get the big end of the profit. and usually does so.
This would hardly apply to the out-of-date farmer with
whom hog raising is simply an incident.
Even he, with the kitchen-slop methods of his forefathers,
profits from the few pigs he sell.s.


HOG RAISING AS A BUSINESS

With hogs,'the day of haphazard breeding and handling
has been replaced by a scientific system of care that is based
entirely upon improved results accomplished.
It is from the raising of hogs as a business that capital can
be made to pay bigger returns than in any other legitimate,
undertaking.
For hog raising, as now practiced, is a business, with all
the experimenting and guess-work left out.
The breeding, feeding and handling of hogs has become
an exact science, with the efficient methods found in other
lines of production.
If properly bred, immunized against disease, fed and
cared for, a sow will produce t\wo litters each year, of from
five to fifteen pigs at each bearing.
Hog raising has become a certainty instead of a gamble.

GO INTO HOG RAISING, PACKING AND CANNING

These pages will point out how it is possible for you to go
into the raising o` hogs and the packing and canning business.
This doesn't mean that you are to utilize your back yard
for this purpose, or buy a farm.
If you did either, you would have to invest money and
time, and strug--'e against your ignorance on the subject.
Like any other business it requires experience and capital
to employ expe -ts who know the proper breeding and feeding
principles, anr' how to construct plants where hogs can be
cared for i- large numbers under sanitary conditions and for
packing arn Canning purposes. With a small number of hogs,
or small plants, the overhead expense is too great to enable
one to get the full benefits, from a financial view point.
But it does mean that you can invest your money with
others where you will be assured of a yearly income.
Your money will be invested in products that go on the
great American and European table as a necessity, not a
luxury.
Any undertaking will succeed through intelligent co-
operation if the plan has a good demand behind its product.

CANNING, DEHYDRATION AND CREAMERY PLANTS


Because of the high prices demanded for canned goods,
intelligent men have wondered why the colossal waste in
"crooks" and ripe tomatoes, peas, beans, cabbage and other
products is not prevented in Florida, as in other states, by can-
ning, or dehydration?
This company intends to reclaim a part of that enormous
loss by building dehydrating and canning plants.
Later we will build a creamery for dairy products, due
to the fact that nearly all butter fats used in Florida are
94 shipped in, and that our land is especially adapted to cattle
raising, either for milch cows or for beef.
That large profits can be made by the packing, canning
and creamery plants is not a question, but a known fact.











UPPER GLADE LAND SECURED

Six hundred and fifty-seven acres of land has been
leased by the company, 2V miles north of the town of Okee-
lanta, Palm Beach County, Florida, and about two miles south
of Lake Okeechobee ,on the North River Canal, having 660 feet
canal frontage for docks.
All .our land is high and never subject to standing water
or overflow.
The present growth is Custard Apple, Willow, Elder-
berry trees and Pokeweed.
The farms along the canals near Okeelanta Impress even
a novice with the fact that there is no richer land than exists
along that canal. The growth of vegetation is almost un-
believable, and crops are grown easily and cheaply.
Farmers are r raising large crops on this wonderfully rich
land absolutely without fertilizer. As a live stock proposition
it can't be beat.
It should be clearly understood that the Upper Glades,
extending a few miles back around the southern half of the
lake, are higher than the Lower Glades, and being at the top
of the slope from the Lake, are not involved in the drainage
problem. There are many settlers in the Glades and com-
fortable homes are being built.

SOIL ANALYSIS
By R. E. Rose, State Chemist

An average of thirty-four representative muck samples
throughout the Everglades shows by chemical analysis the
following content of plant food: Ammonia, 3.10% ; Phosphoric
Acid, 0.18'; ; Potash, 0.08%.
It will be noted that there is sixty times as much Nitrogen,
with practically the same percentage of Phosphoric Acid, and
nearly nine times as much Potash as found in the average
sandy soils of the state.

REASONS WHY THE UPPER GLADE LAND WILL BE-
COME THE GREATEST CATTLE, HOG AND
POULrKY COUNTRY IN THE
UNITED STATES.

FIRST--There are no long cold winters, no expensive
barns and sb -is to be built for shelter of the stock.
SECOND-Live stock is not subject to diseases peculiar
to a tropical climate.
THIRD-There is no section in the United States where
so much food can be grown to the acre.
FOURTH-The greatest variety 'of foodstuff can be
produced, including all feed needed for live stock. The follow-
ing is a partial list of successfully grown products; Para Grass,
cut for hay, produces ten to fifteen tons per acre; Rhodes
Grass, ten to fifteen tons per acre; Bermuda, St. Lucie, St.
Augustine, Maiden Cane, Red Top and Rye Grass make
magnificent pastures the year around.
FIFTH-Among the forage plants are Nassau Corn,
which yields forty to eighty bushels per acre; Japanese Cane,
yields from forty to fifty tons of green feed per acre; Sugar
Cane, twenty-five to thirty-five tons per acre; Egyptian Wheat
Corn, twenty to twenty-five tons per acre green feed, and
from forty to fifty bushels of seed; Kaffir Corn, forty to fifty
bushels per acre; Cat-tail Millet, heavy yield twice per year;
Oats, Barley and Rye for Winter and Summer pastures; Soy
Beans, Cow Peas, Velvet Beans show splendid results; Sweet
Potatoes, Irish Potatoes, Rutabaga, Turnips, Carrots, Chufas,
Peanuts, Onions, Eggplants, Peppers, Dasheens, Tomatoes,
Peas and Beans, all grow without fertilizer, in quantities that
are almost unbelievable.

TRANSPORTATION OF PRODUCTS SOLVED

Arrangements have been made by Walter Keiswetter. a
boat builder at Miami, Florida, to build and operate a freight
boat, to be known as "The Relief," to haul our freight, also
for passengers and general hauling. Boat to be run on a fixed
schedule between Ft. Lauderdale and Lake Okeechobee, on
the North River Canal.











INCOME


HOG DEPT.
BASIS: One brood sow to each share of preferred stock
issued and one acre of land to each boar and brood sow.
800 brood sows farrowing fourteen pigs per annum (two Jy$ A
litters per year, seven pigs each) 800 times 14 equal 11,200
pigs per year. 11200 hogs ready for market, eight to ten 3 '
months old at 235 pounds each (average selling weight), '4a-,
11,200 time 235 equal 2,632,000 pounds of pork, sold at lOc /
per pound (market price since Spring of 1916 range from
10c per pound to 25c per pound live weight) equals $263,200.00
N. B. The business policy of retaining from litters
the selected sow pigs for breeding purposes enables the
Company to reach its quota of one brood sow for each
share of preferred stock issued, without expending .for
brood sows a proportion of the capital raised through
the sale of shares, the unused capital will be expended
in constructing necessary buildings, buying cattle and
operating plants as per the following list, which will
greatly increase our earnings.


PACKING PLANTS DEPT.

Sacre tracts on easy monthly payments, it will be but a short time

LAIKE WORTH, Feb. 19.-Steadily is
being carried on the great eight to wrest
the Lower 'Glades from their present state
of unproductiveness, due to a Jack of
development, and to transform them into
I the garden spot of the world.
That his faith in the Everglades, is
well founded, after more than a year's
test, is proved by the rePent purchase by
i W. J. Conners of an additionnajlW ac-
res of this rich prairie land, making a to-
tal of something over_-. .0t-acres
he now owns stretching along the
canal for a little -over four miles.' Mr.
Conners is the owner drthe Buffalo Coihr-
Jer, has large, interest in tearrying Yes-
sels on the Great Lakes and attends to
politics on the side.
Another easterner who has became in1
terested in the great possibilities of these
lands is Harry S. 'Irij of Boston, who
has puichnsed 30,000 acres of the Barr
tract and it is rumored that he will do-
.velop it and .locate thereon a town-site to
,be called Kieisey City.

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
I' character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote-
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is" now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre. '"
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
N also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
Sone of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.


Very truly yours,

Dear Bir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre. 6
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

,1:tfeie riea future to"tl'ie deyejopiment ot
:P alnm Beach and this vicinity.
"I refer to "the. purchase of appi-oxi-'
mately 1,000 feet of laud running from
3 the ocean to Lake Worth; in Palmi
Beach. This property lies just south or
'the Paris E. Singer developmeni.'This
sale was made to Messrs. Kelsey and
Bond, each taking a one-half undivided
f. interest; -and it was negotiated by me
personally, so I have been able to prac-
tically keep the facts secret. The rea-
W son for so doing was, that I had been'
.authorized by these gentlemen to secure
-o other valuable properties ill the imme-
_o diate vicinity.
"This property I have now securc.-l
one parcel being one of the priest lake
S front properties in Palm Beach. which
was bought by Mr -Kclsey personally.
and on winch lie intends to build Ihs
own residence. The occaia front pro:,p-
erty was sold at $240n per front fu-nt.
and although this is thc highest price
ever obtaiiied for ocean front property
lying south of 'Royal Park.' vyt Mr.
Dietsch, who is associatrl with iie in
business, has had a bona itle offer from
I a fo'rmner large iiivetorr in prorlerty"
here in Paln Beach at $250 pe-r front
foot for the sanie property. Th offlTer
w- has been made iuithii the I[:t fort;-
eight hours.
"'However, Messrs Kelsey & Boiid did
not purchase this property for resale.
or to be. de.elopcd in lots or plots, or
to be built upon by Mecsrs. Kelsey or
Bond for their own residence, as both
have purcha-ed elsewhere for this plr-
pose.
"I am inot, at the present tim, at lib-
erty to state for what purpose this
property has been acquired. However.
It is a well known fact that Mr. Bond
is the owner of the Bond chain of ho-
tels in the East, and he i: acquiring
more hotels from time t6 time. Mr.
Kelsey is the proprietor of over sixty
large restaurants scattered throughout:
the North and East, so the public can,
form their owvn conclusion. Both Mr.
Bond and Mr. Kelsey have returned ;
North. with the announced intention of
Mr. IKelsey selling the greater portion
of his very large holdings of real es-
i tate and in using.-Lvery dollar of same
in improving the property that he has
J purchased in Palm Beacli county.
"Did you e,.er stop to think how the
merest trifle will change a man's opinl-
ion, and perhaps his %%hole life? As an
example of this, I think my experience j
withMXlr. Kelsey will best illustrate this
point. I had known of Mr. Kelsey for
years. knotsn his personal friends and j
intimate acquaintances, but we had
never met personally. Mr. Kelsey came
? to Palm Beach oil his first. visit, and
was a perfect stranger here. He was
a guest at the Breakers Hotel, and was
r assigned to the next table to mine in
the dining rooin. I believe. lie was here
about ten days. when one day. I received
a wire from Mr. Bond. whom I have
been representing for some years in
looking after his real estate investments.
Mr. Bond wired that he would be hliere
the following day. The next day, when
going in to dine,.I found Mr. Bond
seated at Mr. Kelsey's table. Mr. Bond
called me over, introduced me to Mr.
Kelsey, and said 'Why haven't youl
shown Kelsey around Palm Beach? H
intends leavihigULomorrorV, and says
is di l,,sted wrTiF the place?' I replied
.that it he would stay over another day"
or two and see Palm Beach in thbleright


way, undoubtedly. he would chiapge Mi'\
opini&i. Early the next day we started
from the liotel on an autb ride, motored
to the inlet, and came'back over the
Ocean Boulevard. winding in and out,
up one street and down another, I ex-
plaining to him %who had purchased,
who had built, and who intended build-
ing, and theire r detailed information re-
garding Palm Beach. We .put in the
whole day in seeing Palm Beach. from
the inlet to Boynton. By this time Mr.
Kelsey had changed -hie-,.opinion and
declared his intention of remaining a.
day. or two longer.
The following day we took our auto

9 and made a careful inspection of all of
Palm Beach, North Palm Beach, the'
Estates of South Palm Beach, and Lake
WVrth. After inspecting Lake Worth
thoroughly. %we motored out \west of
this place, and he was shown the won-
derful improvements and developments
that had taken place in that vicinity
within these last two or three years.
While showing him the land west of
Lake Worth. from hirs corC4ersation I
saw that he %%as interested in farm
'ands, and I asked him why he did noi
Lcquire a body of land in the Escr-
J'lades, or some high hammock land in
his section. He replied, 'I might be in-
-rested in a hundred acres or so.' f
immediately replied. 'Wh'', Kelsey, in
lour line y)u do big things. In the
eal estate l ine you ta l ik. e -a piker.
You lhave-_to talk thousands in farrii
lands here, instead of hundreds.' 'Well,"
lie answered. 'show me the thousands,
that's what I' wantii"T-'Treplied b- saying
'\'ell. I will call 5our bluff. How would i
a tract of say about fifty sqruare-miles
suit \ou?' He immndiatclv came back
'with saying. 'WVell, that's rather.,isnall
for me, but nearer my size. Lead me to
it.' I Immediately turned the auto
round and headed for this special track .
anrcin an hour w.e were on the southeast
corner of the property, and he at once
'said. 'I wilL buy this.r, a.ct, providing
you call convince me that the batane,.
is equally as good as hat I can see
trom thir-plornt.'
"Mr J B. MLDonald, president of the
.Coisolidaied Really Companii.. and I
"had been negotiating with another party
'for. tbge sale of this property. However,
the. pagt% had not consummated the sal;,
so we mtibred to Mr McDonald's of-
.Ici; and r .resented Mr. Kelsey to iMr
McDonald. and as Mr. McDonald was
.more "'auniliar with thi. body of land
Siltari myselff, he then and there went
: into tl details of the proposition. The
result was that Mr. McDonald took the
S'iexst traiii to Ja.ksonville to consult the
owners, leaving' his partner. I.Mr. Carl-
berg and myself) to go over that por-
tion of the tract we could show Mr.
Kelsey the following day. We spent
the following day with Mr. Kelsey and
i thie result was that Mr. Kelsey purt
chased the property. "-
"By this time AMr. Kelses was thor-
I ugly coninced of the desirability nut
only of Palm Beach for an investment,
but the desirability of purchasing here
for his own residence. and instead of
going immediately north. as he inte-nd-
ed ,he staved here some two weeks
longer, and nearly every minute of Inis

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lends, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre1 at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

The site of Kelsey City, on the Flor-
ida East Coast railroad, about seven
miles north of West Palm Beach, is be-
ing cleared and grubbed. Crews are
clearing and grul,bing section 17, a part |
of Prosperity Farms, just north of Kel- I
sey Cit}, and on the Pros5perit. Farms 1
section there Cvill at onct be erected
daiv r1 rns to which Mr. Kelsev will

Boulevard is being Lonstructed from
Kelsey City. on the railroad, to the lake
front, a distance of a mile and i''half.
i and south to connect % ith Dixie High-
,way at Riviera A re-routing of the
Dixie Highway is to give a lake--front
drivee through North Palm Beach to
I Kelsey City.
But the finaj development of thie Kel-
J sey project cann 'l' be completed in less
-than a' ja. J. B McDonald, Mr- Kel-
sey's 1 caT representative, said last
night "It %nill not be a Floridtla propo-
sition of the character that has met
I criticism. It will 4e al'hlutelh higl
class in all respects. An exan~pTTe"T'the
F tV"acte?''f the development' is the golf
grounds that are to extend from Kelsey
City northeastward to the lakC front.
S' "tLook at this," and Mr. McDonald re-
ferred to a map; "through here is line
,muck land; here"-pointing to other
Spoints-"is yellow clay, fine for avoca-
.does; the best citrus land in the world
is in what we sometime call. the 'flat-
,woods. much of which is more properly
described as pine-prairie. -All it needs
is drainage. It. is approximately true
,o say that 'It is al ha ock when it
is drained.' "
","soon as tha legal proceedings for

have been completed, an engineer will
lie. engaged, .api drairiage pl-ans made.
,tntract -.triaghto.y will be let tor
digging the drain ag' als. This, of
'course, will take time'' r. McDonald
continued, "but there will be belwys.
'No campaign for the s&jL.ltots in
Kelsey"tity or tracts of Tand ih the
[arming area will be undertaken until
the development work has progressed
further. It is pretty certain there will
be no effort to make sales this winter.
k is not improbable, however, that per-
ons who want to buy lots or land in
advance of development will Lie permit-
icd to do so." ,, ji

nhany of Mr. Kelsey's Boston friends al-
ready are participating with him in-the
sorporalion.
"Mr. Kelsey is a thoroughly derpo-
crat~ar t",. Mr. McDonald says: "he'
has made a great success..of the res-
taurant business, having risen 'from a-
relatively low position to heights in fi-
nance, but he has not taken on any un-
becoming airs. He has a charming
'family--a wife and five children, and
has a fine home on the Kelse.y farm in
Lie suburbs nf I.exingtpn. His stand-
ing among all classes in Boston is high.
p has the means and the credit to

'-enefit to West Palm Beach and is a!

Harry L. Kelsey, .of Boston, Mass., the restaurant magnate'of'
INew England, has bought approximately 100,000 ates'of land in
I he vicinity of West Palm Beach at a cost of neaiky two n'lio@h
! dollars and has plans for development that will require the expend:
iture of two million dollars more.
Commencing at a point on the West Palm Beach-canal about
two miles southwest of this city, the land bought.hy MA. Kelsey
extends in an almost unbroken body to within one'mnile of Jupiter,
a distance of seventeen miles. On an east and west'line it extends ,
from the Atlantic Ocean into the "flatwoods" for a distance bf
-t* tle miles. -
Yhe purchases include half of the ocean-front heddings of Bry-.

within the limits of the drainage district, nothing can hinder'thed
progress of drainage operations. Already arrangements .'have
been made for the sale of 'the drainage district bonds. Tracts in
the area of the district are admirably .adapted to the culture of
citrus- products, and have merely awaited drainage to make them
the b'etciirus lands in the United States,
To Build Kelsey City
Crews are already at work clearingJand for the thwnsite of
Kelsey City, to be located in the center of, section 2, and for roads.
A. boulevard is to be constructed east and west from the Kelsey
City railroad station on section 20 and through the Peck tradt to
connect the lake front and Dixie Highway. Another section of the
boulevard will extend south from Kelsey City and join Dixie High-,
way at Riveria. This'will make the location of Kelsey City a mile
and a half closer to West Palm Beach than by the present route of
the highwayy'
The main line of the Florida East Coast railroad runsjhrough
the west end of the Peck tract. At this point the railr9&i taion
will be-located. A golf coure will be constructed on the north end
of the tract, to extend south to the depot.
' Beautiful Munyn! bland having been purchased, the ultimately
plans contemplate the erection of a botel on that island in Lake
Worth, which is just across the lake, east, from Silver Beach, as
the Peck tract is known. A causeway. will be built from the main- i
land to the island, and the space back of the island will be filled
to connect it with the ocean-front peninsula. It was Mr. Kelsey's
purpose, at one stage of the development of hi. plans, to extend i
boulevard north along the west side and north end of Lake.Worth,
,Icrossing" the inland canal, to the ocean front. He was prevented
from this, however, by the exorbitant demands of owners of land
necessary for this part of the development. Being heTd up in that
part of his plan for development, he was forcPd Inb huy Mnnyon
Island and othedjand of that estate and reviseJ.i.ans to make
them include the building of the causeway and the deflection of
the boulevard to the ocean front.
Immense Project
The immense project has three departments:
Erection and operation one or more hIotels, with golf grounds
and fishing camps in connection:
The Kelsey City townsiLe development.
Development and sale of arms, the land to be drained and
made-ready for immediate cultivation.
Mr. Kelsey and some of his friends already are planning the
establishment of citrus ves on their own account. He is having
.election made of landimmediately available for starting groves.
At Lexington, Mass., he operates one of the mtnost famous dairies '
in the country and he will send a herd of t ,
tie at an early date to one of the recently acquired farms. He
eatl impressed with the poibilities of the WathJ.usiness in
alm Beach county, and a largepcart fL the land just bought wi
Ie devoted to that business.

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Purst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work andthe outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
S "sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two man who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
,it. then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
1^, us for twenty acres more.

*. Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre.
l^ Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
641 also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
s. one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
R:'f and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
7 products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
Pt lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much-he will make."
The Prnsident of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith" in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to e40 and $50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

versatility for these are the days
when great women are branching out
in America as English women have
*done across the water where they
were the largest factors in doing mill-
tary chores and all the hospital and'
supply attendance and helping to win I

Mrs. Roy L. Chaffin accompanied by

"They paid 'no attention to .houses o6r-
tents, their first business was to fur-

monunded. The Belgians when their
houses and churches and, everything
that could shelter them or hide them
from the sight of the German murder-
-ers had beed leveled to the ground
refused to desert their homes. They
were not afraid of the German shells
or the battle. With pick and shovel
they dug in on the old home site until
,they were twenty, thirty and forty

arrived-we wept for joy; death and'
starvation were with us on every hand,

were more capable in execution; the
women who could do things were the

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

Very truly yours,

the superiorifyof your Workig quar-

percent better than ours. We .had rid
means to begin with; our farm camps
are big tents of one hundred girls.
each so placed in the country as to-
supply fifteen or more.farms. Every
morning the motor lorries go out with
the girls and the farmers take for the
day the number of help they need,
we feed and sleep them in the tents
and the war board sees that the salary
is paid by the farmer.

so difierehti at I wanted a change.
I ha'd seen so much I felt that I must
have an opportunity to do more, op;
portunities were so great in America;
it seemed to be so because you had
done so much for us and I had learned
about the organization of the
Woman's Labor Army which 'had
come into existence by necessity at
home that I thought I would come to
America. I traveled all the states on
the Atlantic coast. A great Kansa
firmerr who is an old English friend
helped me make a selection. I ha.
little plot of five hundred acres, two
niuTes from Dania' asd have some of
the best breeding stock money could
buy; in ninety days I will be raising
my own hog pasture, and I expect
-rreat results. This is all done by
way of experiment to raise food. The
papers say the war is over-but not
quite. There are still a dozen or more
active battle fields in Europe; but
even if there were none the result of
.the war is not over; people are still
hungry; they are starving, they are
'dyipg in many different countries by
the thousands daiLy. The war ridden
countries are all strike' and chaos be-
cause of starvation-lack of foot,
that's what is troubling the world-
lack of food. Before we can follw
the 'Red Cross through the villages
wiped out and starved -out, before we
can rebuild society, before reconstruc-
tion begins, men, women and. children
must be fed." I know you will help us.
It ma'ry'look strange to you for an
English woman to suggest farm work

Dear Sirs-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres., and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from $24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 O Street, N. W., In the Ouray Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

Very truly yours,

Dear Sir:-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

-The Fhrst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to his faith in Everglade lands. Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from f24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at 460 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
one of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

itis believed that the new Everglades canal begun Mondayv of
M, this week will be finished^ and ii'mae.avafilablp-a.aEuiltivation

This- canal will be about six u-nggnlong and will cojipct the
-J iami-eanal.and..theTamiami Trail.-caals. It will be fiftLJ jii de
I and sixs-.fe. deep, thus providing for the use of fairly.large 'boats for
*^ transportation while providing for' the drainage of adjacent lands.
And what do two paragraphs like that mean to the casual reader?
:,If that reader were giving in some progressive little town in the rich
i 'riven lands of Kentucky and his daily paper should announce that
.I by some alchemy many thousand acres of rarely fertile land had sud-
denly been provided for his section, isn't it altogether likely that he
would see his-town go .wild. with e;xitement and have the greatest,
celebration ever?
"But lands are not produced, by alchemy," tuis man may reply.
Perhaps not, but here in South Florida are thousands upon thousands
of acres of land that is the richest garden land in the world 'wheu the
water standing upon it is given a chance to run down hill into the
I ocean!
When this Everglades land ik drained and made accessible by'
transportation canals and roads, it will be possible for farmers to
I growgreaAcops-three or four crops in a year on the same land,'
'under the sunshine abid fine growing weather of this rare climate.

Dear Sirs-

You will be interested to know that the work of reclaiming the
Florida Everglades is advancing by leaps and bounds.

The Furst-Clark Construction Company, a leader in its line, is
handling the work with extraordinary skill and vigor. Six great dredges are
working night and day, and several more are expected soon to begin.

Visitors, constantly coming to us from the 'Glades, are enthusias-
tic over the work and the outlook for the investor and homeseeker. One sub-
stantial business man declared at one of our meetings that the buyer is
"sure to win," and that "the only question is as to how much he will make."
The President of the State University of Florida visited us recently, and
testified to.his faith in Everglade lands.- Two men who have actually
crossed the 'Glades one, over twenty years ago, and the other, later -
have recently called, and strongly confirmed our statements regarding the
character of the lands and climate. Still others tell us that we understate
the facts, and that "the half has not been told."

Not long since, one caller bought of us ten acres, then twenty,
then another ten, and started for Miami. After seeing the lands, he wrote
us for twenty acres more.

Everglade lands are going fast. Within a year, one tract of
64,000 acres, and another of 180,000 acres were sold; another of 46,000
acres is now almost gone, and thousands of acres from other tracts have also
been sold.

The prices have risen from *24 and $30 to $40 and $50 per acre.
Our fifty-dollar land is now almost gone, and buyers can afford to waste no
time unless willing to purchase at $60 and $80 per acre, at which figures,
also, we have lands to sell.

Our office is now at 809 G Street, N. W., in the Ouray Building,
cne of the best office buildings in the city. We are on the ground floor,
and have a fine window with southern exposure, in which are displayed choice
products from the 'Glades. Crowds stop, day and night, to inspect it. Our
lantern lectures, reinforced by new slides, are given Tuesday, Thursday, and
Saturday nights, and are finely attended.

We shall be glad to welcome all our friends, old and new, to our
new headquarters. To those who have not yet bought we can present THE op-
portunity of a life-time; to those who have, we can outline one plan which
will simplify their task of paying for their lands, and another, for obtain-
ing revenue therefrom.

Very truly yours,
