Well on her way towards becoming the
Best Seaport City on the South Atlantic,
The spirit of progressiveness which per-
vades the business and social life of this
Southern Metropolis is bound to bring her
to the front. Right to-day Jacksonville is
growing faster than any other Southern City
and with our great business interests, Tur-

A Day Behind the Counter of the Jacksonvilie Develcopment Co,
(Prom the Real Estate and Bankers Re-
view of Florida.)
This is an age of publicity. If a great
bumseas enterprise desires to become a
favorite with the common people it makes
every effort within its power to place
before its patrons and constituents the
most minute details of its methods and
practices in the daily transaction of the
business that must be handled in such
way as to produce the best results possi-
ble with the least possible expense for its
shareholders. All large concerns of com-
mereial nature now owned by a multi-
tude of shareholders, and it is necessary
and essential to the welfare and success
of the enterprise, that it not only should
give the details of handling and manner
of conducting its business to its share-
holders, but to its clients and patrons as
well. Olbfdence begets confidence, while
oa the other hand diffidence is usually the
lub that drives the patron across the
way to en energetic competitor.
It has been the policy of the Jackson-
ville Development Company, from the day
of Its organization, to take its sharehold-
er and patrons into its' eonfidene, as it
realized that by such actions everything
was to be gained and nothing lost by the
jealousy of less far-seeing competitors.
This plan has worked admirably and as
a result the company now numbers its
clients by the thousands.
This company handles property on the
basis of purchasing it outright, placing all
the money necessary in improvements in
the property and selling it to its patrons
ea practically any kind of terms they may
As an illustration of the company's
methods of doing business we recall the
great sale it put on, Murray Hill Heights
Addition, of 50 acres lying in the sub-
urbs of this city.
The tract was purchased outright and
subdivided into 2,000 lots, 100,000 being
apent in improvements before a single lot
was offered for sale. Hard roads were
built, boulevards were laid out, ample
drainage installed, lands were surveyed
and platted, each lot staked and all street
earners staked and named, each street
being opened and graded
While all this was goig on a selling
force was being organized, one general
agent having the management of the sell-
ing department for each specfi property.
Twenty agents were made busy and the
lots were sold on a basis of 5.00 cash
at time of sale and payments of $2.00
without interest or taxes until final pay-
ment was made.
When a lot is sold the purchaser signs
an application which goes to the law de-
partmet for investigation and approval
(it being distinctly understood that no
sale are to be made to undesrable par-
tisi, every preation being taken to pre-
vat them from smakiag in in any man-
ner.) If the purchaser comes up to the
exactions of the company as to character
and reputation a bond for title is issued
in duplicate, the application becoming a
part of the instrument, all of which goes
to the chief of the Accounting Depart-
ment and a specific account opened
against the purchaser on the Murray
Hill Heights property ledger, he being
charged in full with the amount of the
purchase and credited with first and all
subsequent payments. When the pay-
ments are all made the bond for title is
called in by the Law Department and a
in departments, each department being
under the direct supervision of an experi-
enced manager. The departments are the
Timber and Farm Land Department, the
Subdivision Department, City Sales De-
partment, Home Builders' Department,
Contract Department, Mail Order Depart-
ment and Department of Publicity.
In addition to the City Sales Depart-
ment the company has correspondents

cipal centers of population in the United
States and local agents in all the coun-
ties of Florida.

Value as a Soil Imprver.
While the area planted in eowpeas has
much increased during the past few years,
this crop has not yet attaind the popu-
larity that is deserves. Aside from its
feeding value, its value as a fertilizer or
soil renovator is of no small importance.
The cowpea belong to the plants known
as legumes, which have the power to ex-
tract nitrogen from the atmosphere and
may deposit it in the soil. In ttid way
they build up and improve the soil pon
which they grow (See Press Bulletin ).
It has been estimated that a good crop of
cowpeas plowed under a fertilizer adds
as much ammonia to the soil as an appli-
cation of 1,000 to 1,200 pounds of cottom-
seed meal per acre; or, if the vines an
harvested as hay, and only the stubMa
and roots left as fertilizer, they will add
an amount of ammonia equal to an appli-
cation of 300 to 400 rounds of cottonseed
meal per acre. Nearly one-third of the
ammonia of the entir- crop is found in
the stubble and roots; the parts whish ae
left in the la when the hay is harvest-
The cowpea needs much hot weather
to mature well, an, hence, should be
planted during the spring or early som-
mer. Very little will be gained by early
planting, that s, planting before May 1,
unless the peas are wanted for table im.
Seed sown in May will give a larger yield
of forage, but fewer pods than seed sown
in the latter part of Tlme or early in
July. That is, early planting tends to-
ward a heavy growth of vines and a small
amount of seed, while later planting se
cures a heavy yield of seed with a small-
er percentage of vines. Good results are
often obtained by sowing the cowpeas
along with some other spring or summer
crop; such as sorghum, or millet. This
improves the quality of such hay by sup-
plying the protein (muscle mad tissue-
producing material) in which the hay
would otherwise be deficient. When
mixed with some other crop the hay ean
be more easily cured, sines the sorghum
or millet prevents the pea vines from
matting together loosely.
The seed may be sowu in drills two or
three feet apart, or broadcast. If sown in
drills, cultivation ca, be praetieed which
will usually increir the yisd. Before
the sowing the groun-I should be tahr-
oughly plowed and well harrowed, so as
to get the seed be-i in as good tilth as
possible. The amount of seed required
per acre varies from three peeks to a
bushel and a half, depending upon the
variety and the method of seaMin If

Practically all varieties of cowplas are
subject to root-knot, which is one serious
drawback to the growing of cowpeas in
the cotton belt of the State. Fortunate
ly the Iron cowpea has proved itself
strongly resistant to root-knot and
should be used when this crop is to be
followed by cotton.

TO THE NAVAL STORES MEN OF
I would invite your attention to some
of the various legislation which was intro-

tatives during the seesion of 1903. A bill
was introduced with a view of securing
revenue out of the naval stores business.
The argument was presented that by fur-

fishing certain tags or labels, as is done
in the inspection of fertilizers, a revenue
to the State could be made out of this
business. The naval stores people would
not pay it; that it would come out of
the purchasers of these supplies. This bill
was killed. I made a speech in opposition
to it. My recollection is that I am the
only me who made such a speech. There
may have been others.
There was a committee of men, engaged
in the naval stores business, at Tallahas-
see during the session of the legislature.
Owing to my record, being friendly to
their interests, I was requested to intro-
dues and take charge of the following

doing my duty. I think, however, it
might be well or some of you gentlemen
to know who has been your friend in the
legislature. As you know, I am a can-
didate for Governor of Florida. Any as-

appreciated. I have the honor of being,

preaches the gospel of Good Cheer, and
bids the rest of the country look for the
sunshine that has been obscured only by
an artificial smoke.
That brilliant economist, Walter Bage-
hot, has told us how a crop failure or
other misfortune befalling any element or
class of a great population easily brings
hard times upon all. Conversely an awak-
ening of prosperity among one class or
element brings back good times to all. St.
St. Louis sees the certainty of good times
for the vast agricultural and industrial in-
terests by which it is surrounded. It as-
sures other cities that its confidence in the
future of the year is not misplaced.
Let us take up the cry of prosperity
that is made in St. Louis and let it echo
and re-echo throughout the length and
breadth of this great country. Florida was
perhaps less affected by the Wall Street
flurry and its consequences than any other
State; but, unfortunately, there are too
many business ghouls ready to play upon
the misfortunes of others and these people
have tried to create a hard times senti-
ment for personal aggrandizement. Let
us all preach the gospel of Good Cheer.
Protection of National Forests.
(From American Industries.)
The first duty of the Forest Service is
to protect the national forests. These
forests are mainly virgin in the sense
that but little of their area has been cut
over. They are not, however, virgin in
the sense of being fully stocked with
timber. A fully established forest which
has never been interfered with does not
gain. It makes no more wood by growth
than it loses by decay. Most of the for-
ested area of the West, however, has
been' severely interfered with for many
years, chiefly by fire. Fires caused much
damage even before white men entered
the country. They have caused much
more since. The most serious part of the
damage caused by the ordinary forest
added the heavy damage caused in the
fire is that done to the young growth,
from the tiny seedlings in their first year
up. To this damage by fire must be
past by the overgrazing of stock, and
especially of sheep.
With the checking of these and other
abuses through administration by the
government, the quantity of timber on
the National Forests would be adding
very materially to its quantity each year
that fires are kept out. It may be said
in passing that the fire loss on these for-
ests is now reduced almost to a negligi-
ble figure. If the entire cost of the forest
administration for the last fiscal year
were charged to the account of fire pro-
tection, it would be equivalent to an in-
surance charge of something like $2 per
During the calendar year 1907 the tim
bered area of National Forest land burn-
ed over was about two one-hundredths of
one per cent of the total area of National
Forests, and considerably less than one
one-hundredths of one per cent of the
standing timber destroyed. In other
words, looking at the matter from a
strictly business standpoint, the govern-
ment may well feel that it did not do
badly last year with its forest property
even though its per acre expenditures and
receipts were very low, since the forests
carried themselves, and in so doing paid
for a protection of the property which,
if regarded as insurance, was worth at
the ordinary insurance rate of city prop-
erty more than the -gross expenditures
of the government upon its forests. And
id addition to this valuable consideration
obtained without expense, the government
has gained also by the decided improve-
ment of the forests which protection from
fires and other causes of injury has
TIMBER OWWIRS ORGANIZE TO
One of the most important economic
movements of the day about which the
general public has yet learned little is
the concerted action of owners of timber
in different parts of the country in or-
ganizing associations to protect their
holdings from fire. In the Pacific North-
west, the Washington Forest Fire Asso-
ciation has just elected officers at Seat-
tle and begun work for the year with
3,000,000 acres under its care. 'The plans
include a system of patrol by rangers re-
sembling the work done by the United
States Forest Service in guarding against
and extinguishing fires.
Organizations of similar kind and for
a like purpose are at work in Oregon and
Idaho. In the latter State, a portion of
the expense is borne by taxation and paid
from the State treasury. A western rail-
road company which holds large tracts of
timber has taken steps to guard its prop-
erty from fire, and during the short time
that its plans have been in operation, it
has met with most encouraging success.
Similar work is being done on the other
side of the continent. Forest owners in
Maine have gone to work in the same sys-
tematic way to control the forests' great
enemy, fire. Like organizations are found
in other parts of the country, showing
how fully it is now realized that protec-
tion against fire is of the greatest impor-
It is safe to say that fires in this coun-
try have destroyed more timber than lum-
bermen have cut. When timber was abun-
dant, the waste passed almost unnoticed,
but now that a scarcity is at hand and an
actual wood famine threatens in the neat"
future, the owners of forest lands are
waking up and taking action to ~ave
what is left.
THE "GET-TOGBTHBE MOVEMENT."
(From "The 'Tadesman.")
It is exceedingly gratifying to note the
increasing tendency among the cities of
the South to foster and develop a spirit
of "getting together" for the advancement
of their respective localities. This is what
we have been urging for many months
past and this is what we would urge now
with all the earnestness and seriousness
at our command, for this is the keynote
not only of future progress, but for hold-
ing what we have already gained.
The spirit of unrest is abroad in the
THE STUART-mBMSTEIN CO.
land. This spirit is disintegrating in ts
character aad tedemcies and will row, a
all evil nfluences do, nless promptly dis-
cerned and as promptly counteracted
Such a spirit has no place in the soil of
the South, but it will row here ust as
vigorously an just viciously unles
there are efforts to meat and destroy t.
This is one strong reason for a "get-to-
gether" movement at this time and of it-
self would be sufolent to inaugurate and
sustain such a movement eerywhee, but
this is by no means the only reason or
even the strongest a to the aned and
benefits that pertain to it.
There has been permitted to grow up a
feeling of antagonism between the busi-
ness and political factors of the Soth
and these elements have been working at
such eross-purposes as have brought de-
velopment along certain lines, notably ral-
road coMstrutian and nporation im-
provement, almost to the point of a stad-
still, and this condition needs correting
in the interests of the Soath. Thre are
other fields of improvement and devdp-
ment that ar vital to the future of this
section, especially those In the matter of
educational advancement and agricultural
improvement. The South can feed and
clothe the civilized world from its own re-
sources and products and yet it is not do-
ing this for its own tisens.
From these considerations, aside from
others that hang on a higher civilization,
there is need for a general movement of
"getting together"--evral cities in the
South have held public meetings with no
other objects in view and the results in
every instance have proven their wisdom.
These meetings have been called by loeal
commercial or business bodies, ad pro-
grams were arranged and carried out that
bore on local conditions, loe advantages
and local needs in various lines.
From these meetings stronger organiza-
tions have developed, greater local pride
aroused and a higher sense of individual

The Gospel of Good Cheer.
By I. C. ma us, Chairman lo the Eec-
ative Cemmittee tate National
Prosperity Asseiation at St. Loui.
Wb have formed a business organization
to be called the National Prosperity Asso-
dation of St. Louis-having for its object
the encouragement of a return of prosper-
ity sooner than might otherwise occur
without help, or without some active ef-
forts on the part of the business men. We
believe that present conditions are ex-
emedingly favorable to this. The body--
emercal-- s been very ill, and in aI
ee has had typhoid fever, but now the
fever has entirely left-the disease is out,
ad the patient only remains sick and
weak, so that permanent recovery is only
a matter of time. How to quicken that
resvery in a healthy manner is the prob-
lm we are undertaking, and we believe in
the power of ---wagea-et-by showing
to the world at large that conditions are
fodametally sound and healthy, and
that nothing now exists but a lack of
esldemee to restore us to a full measure
of prosperity such as existed a year ago.
We are making an effort, through the
press and through other business assoia-
tions, and through the traveling salesmen,
to eeourage the people to e the sunshine
that s clearly in the pathway, and to be-
Heve that things are very much better
than most people think they are, and that
with the present crop prospects soon to be
realized, if nothing unforeseen occurs in
the immediate future, it is only a question
of a very short time until the dinner pails
will again be full and the unemployed will
again be employed at fair wages, and that
there will be no reduction in wages of
those already employed. We believe there
i a great change of sentiment with the
Intelligent people of the United States,
sad that it is increasing very rapidly. It
therefore see to us a most propitious
time to do what we can to encourage a
quick return of prosperity, to the great
beefit of the laboring man and to the
beneft of all business interests.
On all sides we find expressions of fav-
orable sentiments to the effect that fur-
ther legislation against railroads and
large corporations shall eease, that the
business interests of this country shall be
given a rest and that the departments of
justis may be allowed to proceed with
their work in a quiet manner-which, of
course, is greatly to be desired. It is ab-
solutely essential to the welfare of this'
country that the railroads should again
prosper, because more than one and a half
million men are in the employ of the rail-
roads today, and as many more are de-
pendent upon their revenue from railroad
investments; hence, it is deemed almost
impossible that we should return to a full
measure of prosperity excepting the rail-
roads participate in the same.
With the full cooperation of the press
of the United States-which we hope to
have-and with the united efforts of the
business associations of all the large cities,
we feel confident of our ability to aceel-
erate the speed of returning prosperity
to a great degree. It is hardly necessary
to say that everybody would like to have
wages maintained at the highest figure,
and without a cut. There is no doubt as
to the wisdom of this course. We are
most heartily in favor of it and are work-
ing to that end-giving our time and our
money to accentuate better conditions
and returning prosperity. We hope and
expect to have the cooperation of manu-
facturers, merchants, bankers, railroads
and the labor element-in fact, every bus-
iness interest of the United States. We
ask every business man-and, in fact, ev-
ery commercial man and house in this
country-to lend us their aid-to work
with us--to join hands in the gospel of
and scatter seeds of sunshine in the paths
of all whom they meet. If they are pessi-
mists, we want them to become optimists;
if they are optimists, we want them to in-
crease their iptimism; we want them to
crease their optimism; we want them to
be cheerful in their manner and in their
conversations -in their predictions -in
their hopes and aspirations.
Fundamentally, everything is all right-

the basis of our prosperity comes from the
soil, and the products of the soil have
never had greater value than at present.
The outlook for crops is marvelously prom-
isag. To illustrate-the winter wheat
crop-which is the first one of import-
amce that comes to our notice-is better
than ever before in the history of this
country. Kansas reports a condition of
15 on winter wheat-something hereto-
fore unknown. When the lumber inter-
est shut down, and the railroads laid off
a lot of their employes, a large proportion
of them went immediately to the farm-
ers, or planters, so that these toilers of
the soil have, for the first time in many
years, had enough labor to put in a full
or large crop-perhaps a larger crop than
ever before, and the planting is still going
on. With a larger planting than has ev-
er gone into the ground, and with favora-
ble weather, it seems reasonable to sup- '<
pose that we may have most excellent I.
crops this year-it looks exceedingly
probable. Therefore, everything which is
the base of our prosperity is right-all
that is necessary now is to restore con-
fidence-so that the wheels of commerce
begin to move again with the same rapid-
ity that they did a year or two ago, whn
we were at the height of our prosperity,
and from which we went in a wonderfully I
short time to a very low stage of depres-
sion and hard times.
We ask the co-operation of everybody J
in the United States in this movement-
which we think has great merit, and
which has great possibilities.
