TWENTY-FIVE miles from the mouth of the St. John's River and on the splendid seaward curve of the broad and placid stream, lies the city of Jacksonville, not long ago the "cow ford" (Wacca Pilatka) of the Indians, now the beautiful commercial and social capital of Florida. It was named after Florida's first Governor, General Andrew Jackson. Including East Jacksonville, La Villa, iirooklyn and other suburbs, the inhabitants number about 25,000, swelled during the winter season to many thousands more.
Long wharves project into the river along the city's front, harboring vessels from many domestic and foreign ports. Over sixty millions of feet of yellow pine lumber, some fifty millions of oranges and large quantities of cotton, sugi', I'niils. vegetable .1 u! fish .lit.- shipped from here annually.
The city is a great railway and steamship centre, and a* such :he distributing point for tourist travel to Florida. Excursions are planned and executed from here to the various resorts on the coast and in the interior.
Jacksonville may well be termed the "City of Hotels," for not only are they numerous, but spacious, elegant, well appointed and well kept, constituting one of the city's chief claims upon the tourist and invalid. Nature has been lavish in her hangings and decorations. Stately, spreading live oaks line almost every street, meet overhead and bend under the profusion of the swaying tufts of moss. Flowers and shrubs bloom throughout the winter. Lovely vistas greet the eye tip and down the broad stretches of the St. John's with its varied craft of sails and steamers.
Of the natural wealth and development of Florida's industries the Sub-Tropical Exposition affords a splendid representation. It also includes exhibits from the Bahamas, West Indies, Mexico, Central and South America. One of its chief attractions are a band of Seminoles from the Everglades of Florida.
