-e".:w York and hilt e tfi'ii tIrkeb has
drained the, resourdts of the whole'Jersey coast,
and it is only a question of time near at hand
.When terrapin in its native wids will. become
nearly, if not quite, extinct. To overcome this
fearful famine a limited number of Jerseymen
have made this delicious reptile a study, and
the knowledge secured .resulted in. the farm,
which bids fair to rank among Atlantic City's
rarest attractions. So far not much beauty has
been evolved, but Cape May has been beaten,
and this alone is sufficient to bring a profitable
return for the outlay.
When State Senator Gardiner began his
searching explorations 'toterrapinto terrain lore' he
found that scientists had sadly neglected to in-
form themselves about the domestic life of the
Jersey "diamond-back." Professor Baird, of
the Smithsonian sepulture, at Washington, was
approached on the subject, but he proudly
pointed to his fossil remains of the "diamond-
'backs" of the saurian age, and proved that the
turtles of. that day were abundantly able to get
along without theaid ofa prying Jerseyman.
In order to overcome the lack of-scientific in-
formation, a small family of terrapins were col-
lected a few years ago, and it hagproved atnost
interesting study to learn thetaste, inclinations,
length. of ,life, as well as the time it takes to
,each its greatest perfection. The "diamond-
back" terrapin never leaves it home by the s'e,
while nearFy every moment of its life is spent d
burrowing in the salt water mud, where it lies
torpid for more than six months in the year,
losing nothing, however, but apparently draw-
ing sustenance from the mud where it isburied.
As thousands of dollars have been already in-
vested in this new industry, the impbrtanCe of
the subject is readily brought to mind. After
five years of existence a well-behaved terrapin
leaves the bottom of the muddy salt pond, crawls
to the edge of the adjoining warm sand in the
'balmy month of June, and deposits from four-
teen to twenty eggs, which she carefully con-
ceals in the warm sand. After this performance
Mme. Terrapin goes back her boudoir of mud
with all the calm indiffer ce of modern moth-
erhood. But a foe of the st relentless kind is
at hand in the shape ofs rd called the crow,
which speedily unearths terrapin eggs, and
they ire dispatched at. solitary banquet.
Senator Gardiner belie that the crow has
more to do withhe ext on of the terrapin
than the hunter who r s it his business to
furnish the markets. A i own that the young
terrapin sleeps du first year of exist-
ence, never leaving were the egg is de-
posited, freezing an t awing within the bosom
of mother earth and growing like the roots that
surround them. t is believed by some of the

The Sin of Fretting.
HELEN'HUNT says: "There is' one sin which
seems to me is everywhere and by everybody
under-estimated, and quite too much over-
looked in valuation of character.
"It is as common as air, as speech; so common
that unless it rises above its usual monotony we
do not even observe it. Watch any ordinary
coming together of people, -and see how many
minutes it will be before somebody frets-that
is, makes more or less complaining statement of
something or other, which most probably every
one in the room, or the car, or the street-corner,
as it' may be, knew before, nd which most prob-
ably nobody. can help. Why say anything
about it? -, It is cold, it is hot, it is wet, it is
dry; ;somebody has broken an appointment, ill-
cooked, a meal; stupidity or bad faith some
rwherd bas resulted in discomfort. There are'
plenty of things to fret about. It is simply as-

The question frequently asked by those de-
siring to locate in Florida is', "What is the class
of the soil, and what can we raise?"
To such we would state that the soil in the
greater portion of the State is sandy, except in
the hill lands and hammocks, where large por-
,tions of the clay and alluvium are to be found.
The sand is not the sharp, silicious dand of the
ocean, or in any way resembling the sandy
lands of other States; this soil has more'or less
of loam, and a large percentage of line 'and or-
ganic remains, giving it much. fertility. The
country is well watered, not only by its,larger
and smaller rivers and lakes,: but by. in'mner-
able creeks anid springs. The principal agri-
&iltuiral products are corn, cotton, su giWicanie,
sweet land Irish 'potatoes, oats, rye,' 'ieas, pea-
-nuts, rice, etco Fruits of nearly' every kiniid will
,grow in Florida, unless, it he. mitle e tpe

fiterestinrg Lettt from Father Hugon.
Referring to our comment on the quantity of
wine said to have been made from five bushels
, of Scuppernong grtpes, (DsPATCH, November
20,) Father Hugon, of Tallahassee, writes us
the following very pleasant and satisfactory
explanation of his process:
TALLAHASSEE, FLA., November,23, 1882.
Editors of The Florida Dispatoh:
; A friend sent me the number of THE FLOR-
IDA DISPATCH having your comment on nmy
wine making, remarking, that I would be very


"Mock Orange"-Osage Orange, Etc.
A subscriber of Campsville, Fla., asks:
Is the Mock Orange and the Osage Orange
all the same.plant? And is it poisonous for cat-
tle to eat ?
REPLY.-They are not the same. The pois-
onous tree, sometimes called "Mock Orange,"
is the Cerasus Caroliniana, or "Carolina Ever-
green Cherry." It is known also (erroneously)
as "Wild Olive," "Wild Peach," Lauria
Mundi, &c., and is fatal to cattle, if eaten
The "Osage Orange," or Bois d'Arc. of Ar-
kansas, is a Maclura; and, we believe, harm-
less. The wood is very hard and durable;
seedling plants have been much used, in the
West, for defensive hedging; and, of late, the
leaves have been fed, successfully, to silk worms.
For many reasons, the Osage Orange has not
been planted for hedging in the South. It' is a
deciduous tree ; and we have several evergreens,
such as the Macartney Rose, the Pyracantha,
the Yucca, etc., which are superior to the Osage
Orange, either as ornamental or defensive
Taxing Young Orange Groves.
BRONSON, FLA., November, 1882.
Editors of The Florida Dispatch :
In THE DISPATCH of November 13th, I saw
an article characterized by the above heading,
written by Mr. J. B. Oliver, and copied from
the Gainesville Advocate.
He must have penned the above article with-
out a knowledge of the La# of Taxation, now
in force in this State, or else he places a differ-
ent construction upon the same, from what my
.understanding would lead me to believe, was
the law as laid down in McClelland's Digest ;
chapter 174, page 868, section 14, which dis-
tinctly says:
"All groves of orange, lemons, limes, bananas,
guavi 'and other tropical fruits, shall not be
subjected to a greater tax than the said lands
on which the same are situate would be sub-
jected if planted in corn or cotton; Provided,
That nothing in this section shall be, construed
to exempt from taxation, at the legal rates,
upon a fair assessment thereof, all groves of
bearing fruit trees, or upon nurseries of such
trees planted for sale." ,
That the akove groves can only be taxed as
so many a~s of cleared land is, I think, a
proper constpption.
I beg that you consult the above section, and
if you agree with me, as I think you must, then
give the propey explanation through your pa-
per as a means fc orrecting such impressions
as may have beei formed in accordance with
your last issue; ;: such a law as therein stated,
would be exceedgly damaging to the interest
of, the State, and, ofcourse, to the people. J.

much amused, and indeed, I was. You think
"I stretch my blanket a little too wide." I
hope another year to stretch it a little wider.
I did not think my wine making was anything
phenomenal, and if it' got into, the papers it
went in through some friend who thought it
You say that "from three to five gallons to
the bushel of grape is about as much wine as
can reasonably be expected." I see you lay a
stress upon the word wine, and in this I per-
fectly agree with you ; however, I would think
it most extraordinary to make five gallons of
wine out of one bushel of grapes. If I call my
No. 2 and No. 3 wines, I use the word in a
generic sense, as it is commonly used in this
country. We say orange-wine, -blackberry-
wine, though theoretically speaking, no amount
of these fruits could make a drop of wine.
My No. 1 is real wine, and you see I made

but seven gallons of it, though, according to.
your reckoning, I could havemade 15?or 25. I
made but seven-not a gallon and a half to the
bushel. There rema'ped then-according, to
your reckoning-from 8 to 18 gallons of wine
in the pulps. No wonder, therefore, that, by
adding water and sugar I did make 22.gallon
of strong "piquette." Having not allowed t
two first Wines to thoroughly ferment, on.l
pulps, and not pressing these pulps, the as
still enough ferment left to change the pugar I
added with the water into alcohol and r e 17
gallons of second piquette. As the wordcl.quette
is not used in English, and as the rentedd
juice of any fruit is commofty ine, I do
not think "I stretched my blank ide" by
calling my piquettes wines.
In France, after the wine n inade and
the pulps pressed, water, with sugar, is added
to the mass, and piquette o nd wine is made,
which is quite palatable ut I did not press,
and add sugar, there "lhad a much better
quality of piquette,. chi without much
stretching, can be cal We.
You say "you would e tq be obliged to
drink much of No. 2 1o. 3 'vintages.'"
There's where the joke co ', and which I
suppose my friend meant W n he sent THE
DISPATCH number, for be hai te4the differ-
ent wines. Several who ha .ed these two
"vintages" like much better' 3 than No. 2.
There was even. an invalii her, ,whod had
traveled extensively `*rou opeand was
ordered to drink wine, le g tasted sev
eral wines on the market bpi preferred my
No. 3 even to my No. 2, sa |ted. ome-
what like the Rhine wines. a ay differ ;
for my part, I prefer No. 2K .Io4 1.
I had two gentlemen, who~ ~i taste my
wines, one is the most success rower in
Florida, the other is a renkw i^ nority on

Although I am not a member of the Fruit-

I go to Jacksonville. I will try and answer
the questions asked in your circular, And pub-
lished in THE DISPATCH. I have a homestead
of 160 acres, on the best pine ridge on the'At-
lanic coast, south of St. Angustine, located one-
quarter of a mile west of the Hillsborqugh
River, and I find I can raise, with good atten-
tion, all the various kinds of tropical and semi-
tropical fruits with littlee protection.

citron, figs and guavas, and have 'many limes
and guavas in bearing, and a few other. ,

their ravages are easily overcome by dusting
the trees wZith shell lime, and washing the bod-

No. 3 was pronounced just the'thkg fbi Ameri-
cans; just what they liked. No.. iws oonsid-
ered a good wine, which, with age, butild be-
come very fine; and it was though, that treat-
ing Scuppernong by this.proemwwAstdid' be the
best method to make use ofit fl$ wine making,
for it is very -rich in fermenting principles,
which often causes the wine to ferngt the sec-
qnd time, even a year after it has been made.
It was, however, thought that ajudicious mix-
ing of No. 1 and No. 2 would make a superior
wine. I never would have thought my wine
would have passed judgment before such dis-
tinguished wine connoisseurs. I would, how-
ever, advise others to tryf this process, and I
may assure them that they will secure for
themselves a cheap, abundant and 'wholesome

Silk Culture in the South.
Mrs. J. B. Mitchell, of Hawkinsville, Ga.,
writes the New York Sun, as follows:
At present, silk culture claims the attention
of all classes and conditions of our people, and
as I have been a successful worker in this new
field, I will say to those interested, that silk
culture is, beyond doubt, the most remunerative
of any ordinary pursuit. The rearing of silk
worms and the management of a cocoonery are
verysimple, and any onie with patience, perse-
verance and care, will succeed. Silk culture,
as a vocation, is specially suited to women and
children, There' is nothing disagreeable nor.
degiirading connected with the enterprise. It is.
healthy, pleasant, and profitable, requiring so
little capital that t1e most humble nay enter
,the-ranks and become successful producers.s If
,you have mulberry and Os.age orage trees, you
will have nothing to buy except a few thou-
,sand eggs to make a beginnings and now, or
during the Winter' months, is tie best time to
secure good' eggs for an early start. Many
ask, "How can I expect to succeed' I never
saw a silk worm. That was my position ex-
actly. I never saw :a silk-worm egg until I
bought them; neither a, silk, worm Oor a co-
coon, until I raised them. Yet I am success-
ful. Silk that I raised last year. was" reeled and
,woven in the handsome brocade presented tq
Mrs. Lucretia R. Garfield by the Woman' Silk
Culture Association of. Philadelphia. T'is is
sufficient proof that ignorance in the beginning
is no sign of a failure. After repeatedd experi-
ments, I am satisfied that silk worms fed on the
Morus Multicaulis nntil the 'third moult, and
then fef& entirely on the'Morus'Alba up to spin-
nig0 of cocoons, will give the best results.
Thainty-six per cent. is generally allowed for'
loaIe. My worms d .d ot" ie, and this.unusual
good luck, .I can only attribute to my mode of
feeding and general management. Ay out-
hoise or spare ro qm having 'a 'fire-pl ace or stove
-w this latituidewe seldom need afire in our co-

can be eonverted into ,a coonery at little or

Sweet Potato Trfellises I
The Flerida "cracker," who grows sweet po-
tatoes "in the good old way," will be apt, to
smile audibly when he reads the last sasthetic
"wrinkle" in the way of cultivating the sweet
potato. This is the way one of our N rthep
exchanges presents the matter. It does look a
little like "putting .on frills;" but will some one
try it and report ?
"It is well known among farmers and gar-
deners, that English peas; beais, tomatoes and
some other plants need some support to limb
upon to keep them off the ground, br else the
result of the crop will hot prove satisf&etory.'
In the case of these plants th' d 'eiion is obhi-
ous enough.: Not only the plat itself needs ll!
the air and sunlight that it' can: get, b'ut i 1
bruit itself must be kept off th6. :ground bor it
will decay. But few 'fartnet's;h we opine;' ere
thought of providing siiAilAr nip orts f6r sweet
potato vines to climb upon', 6r ever thdatig4t
that it would be any benefit w keep than
the ground during' the' growniig period: Yet ati
accidental disco've'ywe ~*4tApthe'past summrt'
almost convinces us that it would be much bel
ter to provide in some 6eIkp w&yi'a support!.
keep theep9tato vines off th f g Iitd, irnd t !
have both them and the" 6 rtkabdut the r
more accessible to light, hea:tnd air.: All
how hard, it is itob povnt/PdatRt tvi
taking root, especially daring d' _a, i.
If, then, the vines could b61m t ..pon
some such support or r(ash,1 st g the
ridge from end to end,- ioul 0i ted,
the vines and the whole "plant wore
air, and the ground cold be" and kept
mellow, as long as the growing last. The
consequence would be, :the1 oie lrger
,And better flavored pota .qf ,them

business, and the larder remains ini the North-

fers such superior advantages for soiling and
pastures,ithat we can raise beef, mutton or pork,
in Florida as cheaply and successfully as can
be done in the Northwest. Besides, we have it

Dr. R. J. MARVIN, Orange City, Fla,, November thb, 1882 reports: Crop- Oranges, Lemons, Limes and other semi-tropical Frtits, 800 trees on ten acres, ranging in age
from one to six y'eats'us fertilizerss as follows: I applied The Map(es Orange Tree Manure from two pounds to the smallest, to fifteei" pounds to the largest tree, Swice a
year, in December and June, nothing else being used, and I am putting in.now at the rate of three tons per year and increasing a hJift ton each year. The Mapes Orange
Tree Manure was scatt broadcast and raked in. Trdes are now growing finely, thrifty and clean; soil is a sandy, pine upland, season dry.
Remarks-"When I km haged this grove, the six acres of large trees had been shdly neglected. They were stunted, star c#yered all Over with-the seale insect, in
fabt were In a dying-on itlbn having as many dead branches as alive. I used various fertilizers the first six months without i6overi g mulch benefit, when'a year ago I
determined to try 2'heM phes Or. e '?ee Manure. During the past year the trees have cleaned off, put on a hedst new prowth'ad averaged at least one-third larger, .They
are in a fine growing condition no, the sap flowing freely. lam well pleased with the results and having laid-in a stock of The Mapes Op tage Tree Manure intend to c tinue
using it in the future. I ai'aecqualted with the principal of vegetable chemistry and biology, enough, at least, to form a correct opfilon of the quality Of a fertilizer and
the needs of a member of the cftr s family."
C. CODRINGTON & CO., Editors of the Florida Aqriculturist, DeLand Fla., November 12th? 1882, writes, 'Therb are many fine groves in this section of all ages, ma-
nured with The Mjapes Fertiliters." "The Mapes Orange Tree Manure is last gaining in favor.'

Sol.. Artificial Fertilizers.
Under this heading the American Agriculturist for February, 1882, in reviewing the work of the Agricultural Experintent-Stations in protecting the farmeirreeogutzes in
the practical success of the MaNpes.atre(, .a '.Wbv4denee 6fhe justness of thelfight valialtions placed upon them by the Stations. On the general subject of such fertilizers
it says: The analysis made during the past few years, undei& te direction of the New York Agricultural Society and those by the Connectidut and New Jersey Experi-
ment Stations, have done much to place the sale of fertiizerstpon a proper basis, and to protect the farmers of those States in thbir purchases. When the farmer can feel
sure that he gets his money's worth in a feifU.triral than in a ton of city manure, his prejudices against artificial manures will disappear. Among the mak-
ers of fertilizers the "Mapes Formula and ueruin Guano opany"ealy took the ground that the proper way to build up a reputation was ,to court analysis of their
fertilizers. We have recently been shown the returns of some thi ty analysis made at the different Experiment Stations. The samples were in Pdrt sent by farmers, and
in part were taken by representatives of the Stations fromy stotiAk sale. In no case did the percentage of the 'Valuable constituents fall short of the amount claimed.
The valuation at the Stations, as calculated from the analysis; aVe ed, for the whole, $1.15 per ton higher than the selling price some spiple wira.worth rather more,
and some a little less, but the average is as above stated. It Is but oer to say that the results obtained by the Tobacco growers i- Connecticut, the growers bf Aspar-
agus, cauliflowers and 6ther "truck" on Long Island, and th11 po wheat farmers of New Jersey, all show that the plants find in the ferttlibtrs the value iulcate4
by the chemists.
From a Bulletin of the New Jersey Station issued in August last Wiave similar testimony to the .high value of thesMapes Manures. Tle analysis of eight rivals, in-
eluding guano, special manures bone meal, etc., showed an excess o'f st over estimated value ranging from $5.64 to $18154 per ton, five ofthe eight showing over $10 in thief
direction while the Mapes "A" brand showed value of $144 ond tle s Co0n Manure of $2.07 in excess of cost. Anl the recent analysis of the Connecticut Experiment
Statipn have, we believe, given similar satisfactory results. .:._ _, tofeb27 '83
