E ARLY in your sojourn you will wish to assure yourself by
observation and inquiry regarding the climate of Florida
in general, and that of DeLand in particular. We will
suppose thatyou have come in December or January.
You notice that most of the trees are in full leaf. Choice roses,
seen in the North only in green-houses, are blooming unprotected
in the gardens. .E-., ir -tl-i.. r.-,minds you of the finest May or
June days of the nI.-I. t.l ,.r,-.i northern states. The months
from November to March may be classed together. While the
summers are long, lasting not i October,, the peninsular form of
the state, the constant breezes, and the frequent showers, pre-
vent the extremes of oppressive heat frequent inland much fal-
ther north. April and May, October and November are the
finest months of the year.
Many people who have come here from the North, East and
West, or from one of the Southern States, testify that the cli-
mate has given them great relief from rheumatism, asthma,
catarrh, consumption, and various diseases of the throat and
lungs. The benefits to be derived from life in the mild open air are
available, and are enjoyed by hearty and feeble alike, through-
out the entire year, winter and summer. The city is for miles
surrounded by forests of the Southern yellow pine, enriching the
air with balsam. The atmosphere at DeLand is remarkably dry
for Florida. There are no lakes, rivers or swamps in. the imme-
-diate vicinity, and the .1,- I .;i- -; of porous sand provides per-
fect surface drainage. :.!,i.;.i i- practically unknown. These
conditions, with an abundance of pure artesian water, and care-
ful sanitary arrangement-. ni.i.- t.!.- fi.-l.--ti.nliibly I.'Ue of the
most healthful places to be found anywhere.

main streets of-the city, a system of water works that is
owned and operated by the city, .,I. !.1-. '; : the purest water
at a little above cost; also furnishing adequate fire protection
and securing a low rate of insurance. An electric light plant at
Stetson, a short distance west of town, furnishes lights for
street and interior lighting. At the same place is located a fine
ice factory, supplying DeLand and the surrounding country with
the article so essential to comfort in northern as well as south-
SNE HOUSES of worship testify that DeLand is a church-
going community. Baptists, Episcopalians, Methodists
(Northern and Southern), Presbyterians, Christians, and
Roman Catholics, besides colored Baptists and Metho-
dists, are represented. The graded school offers an eight years'
course, and the building which it occupies is new. and newly fur-
nished throughout, and is one of the most commodious and best
equipped public schools in the state. A certificate of graduation
from this school is accepted at John B. Stetson University and
entitles the pupil to, entrance into the academic course there. ,

Those who have ridden bicycles on almost every kind of

the hunting season, guides take the tourists to quail grounds and
seldom fail to bag a goodly number of these fat and juicy

N another page of this booklet will be found a half-tone
of the club house uf the DeLand Aquatic Club. This
club was organized in 1901 by our leading citizens, who
recognized the need of water attractions for the tourist
and home people. The club has purchased a thousand acres of
land surrounding several beautiful fresh-water lakes, in which
splendid fishing is found. The club-house is about a mile and a
half east of town, and is reached by a splendid paved street and
bicycle track on New York Avenue (see map). A convenient
and commodious club-house, on the shores of Blue Lake, affords
a place for the sight-seer or picnic party to rest, to secure a
luncheon, to lie in the cool hammocks and see the rippling blue
water, or to write, read or sketch. A boat-house, with sail and
rowboats and canoes, is also among the conveniences, and one
may secure them at reasonable rates. Persons who own their
own boats may leave them in charge of the keeper for a small
monthly or yearly fee. The several lakes of the club are now
being connected by the digging or canals; fifteen miles of lake
shore will finally be acquired.

by ladies of refinement. Whatever one wants, he can
be accommodated. The cards of se veral of our hotels and board-

ELAND is in the midst of one of the most important orange
growing sections of Florida. One who saw the groves
soon after the unprecedented freezes of 1894-95 is hardly
prepared for their present vigorous appearance. Less
injury was suffered in DeLand than in many parts of the state
and in most cases recovery has been rapid and gratifying. Con-
siderable fruit was shipped from this section last year. The
coming season will see largely increased shipments, and the time
is not far distant when in all probability this will again be a
great orange producing country. The production of the pine-
apple here promises to rival that of the orange. Recent experi-
ments prove that with comparatively inexpensive protection
such soil and climate as that of DeLand will profitably produce
fruit which in size and quality far supasses the pineapples
grown without shade further south.
In June or July large quantities of delicious Niagara grapes
ripen. Excellent peaches, pears, Japan persimmons, Japan
plums, pecan nuts, guavas, strawberries, watermelons, and other
sub-tropical fruits are grown here with success. For the local

OHN B. STETSON UNIVERSITY received its charter
from the Legislature of the State of Florida in 1-87. It was
founded primarily in the interest of the young people of
Florida. It was also believed that such an institution
would be of service to many young men and women who,for various
red&ons, spend a portion of the year in the South, and a glance
at the student list will show how wide-spread the name of "Stet-
son" has become. An academy has been built up in which stu-
d nts may be fully prepared for the freshman class of any Ameri-
can college and also provides for those who desire a general lit-
erary and scientific training.
The College of Liberal Arts provides a curriculum of four
years, leading to the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of
Philosophy, and Bachelor of Science. After the first two years
all subjects are elective, permitting the student to modify his
course in accordance with taste or purpose. The following de-
partments are also fully organized: Department of Law,

PRESCRIPTIONS FILLED CAREFULLY AND CORRECTLY.
: SPORTING GOODS, 'KODAK SUPPLIES.
School of Music, School of Art, Businesss College, Normal and
Practice School, and School of Technology.
The University possesses a large library and splendid museum
together with chemical, physical, biological and bacteriological
laboratories, laboratories for mechanical and electrical engineer,
ing, iron and wood working shops, forge rooms and foundry.
In all departments the instructors are specialists in the re-
spect subjects which they teach, and they are in most cases
graduates of institutions of national reputation.
SCIENCE HALL is the central building of a group now being
erected for the School of Technology, and will be open at the
beginning of the college year of 1902-03. It is 200 feet long, 80
wide and three stories high. The style is of the Spanish Re-
naissance, with low, nearly flat roof, the brick wall finished in
gray stucco. The building contains the laboratories, lecture
rooms and offices of the mechanical and electrical engineering
departments and the departments of physics and chemistry, the
lecture rooms, offices and library of the Law Department and
the studio of the Art School. With its equipment this building
i cost $60,000, and together with a foundry and forge room 40x80
feet and a power house 40x40 feet, constitutes the present
group of buildings occupied by the School of Technology.
ELIZABETH HALL.-Elizabeth Hall, the. chief building of the
University, is a gift from Mr. John B. Stetson and bears the
name of Mrs. Stetson. The central portion was built in 1892 at
an expense of about $45,030.00. The structure was completed in
1897 in accordance with the original design of the architect, Mr.
Pearson of Philadelphia. The additions are much larger and
have cost considerably more than Elizabeth Hall as originally
built. In this building are the offices and recitation rooms. The
north wing contains the library, which was to a g-eat extent the
gift of Mr. C. T. Sampson of Philadelphia, who gave $26,000
toward its support. In the south wing of Elizabeth Hall is the
chapel, which will seat 900 people. This room is used not only
for the daily chapel exercises, but for commencements, lectures,
concerts, and other public exercises connected with the Univer-
sity. The ornamentation is chaste and harmonious, culminating
in the richly carved screen of the great pipe organ, which is a
powerful instrument, exquisitely voiced. The stage is also fur-
nished with a Steinway concert grand piano made by special or-
der. During the past few years the chemical and physical lab-
oratories have been located above the chapel, but after the co-,

be used by the Business College.
CHAUDOIN HALL, the young women's residence, bears the
name of the Rev. W. N. Chaudoin, president of the Florida Bap-
tist Convention. The $62,000.00 expended for the building and its
site were contributed by Mr. C. T. Sampson and Mr. Stetson,
with the assistance of citizens of DeLand and other friend.
Chaudoin Hall is artistic throughout. It is of the Colonial style,
plain and simple externally. The first and second stories are of
brick; the third is in the steep, shingled roof and is lighted by
dormer-windows. The interior is planned, finished and furnish-
ed with an elegance not usually seen in a school building.
STETSON HALL.-This building was erected by.the citizens
of DeLand, assisted by Mr. DeLand, Mr. Sampson, and Mr. Stet-
son, for the latter of whom it was named, he being the largest
giver. The building contains forty-five rooms for teachers and
students. This building is occupied by the young men under the
supervision of a member of the faculty.
DELAND HALL.-This commodious two-story building was the
first one erected for the institution, and together with four acres
of land, was presented by Mr. H. A. DeLand, whose name it bears.
Formerly it contained all the recitation rooms, besides the
chapel and library, but is now occupied by the Music Department
for office, teaching rooms, and practice rooms, and the Kinder-
CONRAD HALL.-This building, named for Mr. J. B. Conrad
of Glenwood, was erected and furnished in 1901, at an expense of
about $6,000. It is a two-story frame building. The intention is
to run a club in this building for. the benefit of students who
cannot afford to board at one of the more expensive dormitories.
EAST HALL.-Tnis was the gift of Mr. Stetson, who never
allows a year to pass without showing his substantial interest in
the institution. East Hall is an eleven-room residence located
on Minnesota avenue, just east of Stetson Hall, and is occupied
by students of the College Department.
KENT HALL is a leased building occupied by the students of

THE PEOPLE of DeLand arc from almost every part of the
United States. They are intelligent and progressive.
They have worked enthusiastically for twenty-four years
to build up their beautiful little city. Uninterrupted
progress and improvement have been the result. Their desire
now is that as many as possible of those who are turning south-
ward may see for themselves what DeLand offers both to settlers
and winter residents; for then many more will surely agree with
the many who now pronounceDeLand on account of her climate
and her people, her university, churches and fraternal organiza-
tions, her hotels and her homes, her products, her public im-
provements andher merchants, the most attractive place in all
the Southland for them.
