The Elm and the Vine.
"Uphold my feeble branches
With thy strong arms, I pray,"
Thus to the Elm, her neighbor-
The Vine was heard to say;
"Else, lying low and helpless,
A weary lot is mine,
Crawled o're by every reptile,
And browsed by ever kine."
The Elm was moved to pity;
Then spoke the generous tree;
"My hapless friend, come hither,
And find support in me."
The kindly Elm receiving
The graceful Vine's embrace,
Became, with that adornment,
The garden's pride and grace;
Became the chosen covert
In which the wild birds sing;
Became the love of shepherds.
And the glory of the spring-.
O beautiful example
For youthful minds to heed!
The good we do to others
Shall never miss its meed;
The love of those whose sorrows
We lighted shall be ours,
And o'er the path we walk in
That love shall scatter flowers.

A shoemaker in Prague was
seized with the idea that he could
drive the Devil out of the bodies
of those possessed. He gradually
devoted much of his time to this
branch of trade, and finding quan-
tities of believers and patients, his
proceedings finally attracted the
attention of the police. When
brought before the court it was
thought advisable to submit him
to a medical examination. A
committee of the prominent plhy-
sicians of Prague came to the con-
clusion that "as the prisoner
showed various "symptoms of a

of this just decision, the shoema-

published in a few Austrian pa-
pers. :Immediately, a ministerial
edict was issued, forbidding all:

severe punishment, to publish the
medical decision, and the sentence
based upon it, "since a disbelief in
the personal existence of the Devil

America, south of the tropics.
In the month of August, 1859
I was working in the Tubra dig.
gings, on Taloom creek, in th(
Colony of New South Wales, as a
gold miner. The first hole I sani
was in a gully close to Taloom
creek. During my descent through
the upper strata I found a great
many pieces of petrified wood, from
a species of Eucalyptus, now grow-
ing in Australia, and called there
the Iron bark tree. Further I
found in that layer a number of
iron stones, the Eagle stone,
(lapis aquilae,) perfectly round,
and of the magnitude'of a twelve
pound cannon ball. The Eagle
stones when forcibly struck with a
sledge-hammer, burst, and a shell
or crust of one quarter of an inch
in thickness fell off; inside was
another ball, which burst by strik-
ing, and a second shell fell off,
then a third, etc., and in the mid-
dle was a round ball of the same
substance, but of great hardness,
which could only be crushed by
means of great force.
These stones are found also in
other parts of the world, and the
ancient Romans believed that the
eagles catry them up to their
nests, to facilitate or to accelerate
the hatching of their eggs, for
which reason they were called
Eagle Stones.
The layer above the granite was
a dark brown gravel, called ih the
miner'sa language, "the washing
stuff," as in that layer the gold
was found. My "claim" hardly
contained sufficient gold to pay
the labor expended; but I found
in that layer petrified sea-muscle
shells and sea-weeds. Shortly
afterwards I weut with an Eng-
lishmran tfor a distance of three
miles up the gully to an elevation
of 2,000 feet above the level of
Taloom creek. There we sank a
hole in the expectation of making
a fortune. When about threefeet.
below the surface we came upon
petrified pieces of iron bark wood,
and shortly afterwards upon the
trunk of a petrified iron bark tree,
standing vertical. We followed
the trunk, which increased in
thickness, to a depth of 36 feet
from the surface. There I found
a petrified bone from the hind leg
of a Kangaroo. We broke the
hone; the marrow was to the feel-
ing like fine sand, but still retain-
ed its oily substance, and when
rubbed on a piece of paper, pro-
duced a stain as when oil or fat
would have been dropped on the
paper. The trunk of the tree had
there a diameter of thirteen inches.
A few inches below the bone we
found the tap, and the lateral
roots of the tree petrified,the form-
er standing vertical and the latter
laying horizontal.
Three feet deeper we came to
the termination of the tap root,
found the brown gravel, or wash-
ing stuff, but to our disappoint-
ment not one speck of gold. Be-
low the washing stuff was a layer
ot very hard clay, of a light blue
color, which we penetrated to the
depth of three feet, but as we did
not find in the same a single stone
or any other indication that gold

could be found underneath, we
gave up the hole and left.
The presence of petrified sea-
shells and sea-weeds in the layer
above the granit at the bottom of
the gully, and the presence of pet-
rified roots.and plants yet grow-
ing in this locality, found in the
same layer at a higher elevation,
shows plainly that the higher table
lands formed an island, had a veg-
etation, and was inhabited by
land animals during a time when
the l6wer part' was covered by the
waves ofthe ocean. Probably the
table lands of Australia 'nce
formed a group ofislapds, similar

to the South Sea Island groups,
, which latter, in future times, may
- be connected by some volcanic
Process to form new continents.
I Prescott, in his conquest of
SPeru, mentions it as his firm be-
Slief, that the ancient Incas of
i Peru were related to the ancient
; Aztecs of Mexico, and that an
i emigration from North to South
Amongst the Aborigines of
Australia are found forty-two
f different languages. They are not
dialects, but entirely different and
distinct languages. The same is
found in the different groups of
the South Sea Islands.
lIn America from the furthest
known North to Cape Horn, the
Aborigines or Indians speak dif-
ferent dialects, but the root of
their language is the same.
The difference between the dif-
ferent tribes of Australian abori-
gines is great. The natives of
Van Dieman's Land, or Tasmania,
of South Australia, and of the
southern part of Victoria, may be
called with perfect propriety the
lowest grade of men, but farther
north,"in Queensland, the tribes
are superior to their southern
brethren, as well in the develop-
ment of their bodies as in mental
faculties and intelligence, and are
far ahead of many African tribes.
In the year 1855 I visited the
coal mines of New Castle in New
South Wales. The New Castle
coal is exported to the East In-
dies, to China and to San Fran-
cisco, California. In the New
Castle coal no other organic re-
mains were ever found than of the
family of ferns, which are growing
atpresentabundantly in Australia,
and are found in the Australian
Alps as trees. In the coals of
England are fonud the remains
of tropical plants, and in Northern
Europe northern Asia and in north-
ern America are fouud the remains
of plants and of animals that can,
only live in tropical latitudes,
which shows plainly that the
northern part of our globe passed
through the tropics. On the con- o
trary, neither in Australia, which, e
on account of its gold, is pretty f
well dug up, nor in the Sonth Sea (
Islands, nor in Southern Africa, k
nor in the Southern part of South
America, were the organic remains p
of a single tropicalplant or animal p
ever found which supports Hop- e
kin's theory: that the southern
part of our earth's surface did not
yet pass the torrid zone. Should b
the presence of oraganic remains t
of tropical plants in the northern e
hemisphere be a consequence of I
the precession of the equinoxes or t
of the bodily oscilation of the t
globe, we may place the axis of
our earth in which direction we
want, hit always passing through
the centre, and in every case we i
will find that the corresponding ]
parts of the southern hemisphere 7
will lay also in the tropics; but in'
the southern hemisphere no trop- d
ical remains are found, t
South America and South Af- 1
rica are connected with the north- i
ern hemisphere by land, an emi- t

gration of men, and a wandering d
of land anmials from north to d
south, and vice versa, may have t
occurred; plants or their seeds 1
may have been carried from one I
hemisphere to the other, but still, a
there are at present many animals d
and also plants found, which are c
only indigenous to South Ameri-
ca or to South Africa, and which
have a primitive or antediluvial t
type, which type is not to be found
amongst the animm and plants i
on the northern 4fmisphere, ex- y
cept among the organic remains; 1,
which shows clearly that the north-
ern hemisphere had a similar g
primitive vegetation and was in-

As a practical gold miner in
Australia I know by experience
that the gold viens have invariable
a southern to northern bearing.
But not only the local veins followto
that meridional direction, the
whole metalliferous deposits of the
precious metals through the whole
world lay in the direction of a
magnetic meridian.
If we look at the map of the
Western Hemisphere, we find the
gold and silver regions in the
northern part running from South
Southeast towards North North-
west; in the southern part from
South half East to North half

During my rambles and practi-
cal mining operations in Australia,
I found, with very few exceptions,
the alluvial deposits very shallow,
arid the layer of soil (humus) very
thin, still the soil is very fertile.
Upon the level tabel lands the
forests are park like; that is, the
trees grow some distance apart.
Everywhere we find numbers of
trees lying about, which were blown
down by the winds. This can only
be accounted for by the shallow-
ness of the upper strata; the roots'
soon reach the solid rock, and do
not obtain a sufficient hold in the
earth to resist a strong gale.
The growing some distance apart,
will be influenced by the same
cause. The lateral roots run far
from the trunk in the search for
nourishment, and do not permit
other trees to grow in their vicini-
ty. Mountainous regions afford
an exception, there the trees grow
nearer together, the roots penetrate
the fissures of the rocks, obtain a
stronger hold, and more nourish-
During my ten years residence
in Australia I found that the aver-

course of one year equals the quan-

Great floods are of frequent occur-
-rence, and yet the alluvial strata
is far behind in thickness to the
alluvial strata of countries lying in
the Northern Hemisphere, which

rainy season is in winter, andi

residing in Los Angeles, says in a
private letter; "The .mornings are

trating cold, until about 8 9, 10,

very uncomfortable without one."


"trip from Fort Thompson, to
Punta Rassa, we camped under a
venerable oak tree close to a pond.
After lunch we laid under the
shade of the tree and soon com-
menced to slumber, but with one
eye open to watch the cattle,
which were grazing close to us. A
four to five year old ox was watch-
ing us attentively, and when he
imagined that we were fast asleep
he gave a hardly audible low,
which was answered by a few of
the other animals; now he went
slowly round a cluster of high pal-
mettas and the other cattle follow-
ed him in single file, turning their
heads occasionly at us; when the
last of them disappeared behind
the cluster we mounted our horses
and trotted along the road to in-
tercept their homeward bound
journey. They were already
one half of a mile ahead of us and
were travelingin a brisk trot up
the river, when we overtook them
and turned their heads westward.
The.moanfiul bellow which they
emitted could be understood by
every feelling man, that single dole-
ful sound told: Why are you
driving us from our homes? we
were so happy there?-"-Poor an-
imals! you are yet unconscious of

Florida will not dispute the title.

teristic, and she would not change
it for any other. In this compar-
ison we will add the testimony of
one whose name is familiar in ev-
ery Western household. Solon
Robinson says: "For myself, after
having tasted of the sweet fruits
of our Florida climate, I have no
desire to renew my acquiantance
with that of day of the Western
States, notwithstanding their rich-
ness of soil and agricultural pro-
ducts. As compared with the
West, the conclusion then, is sim-
ply this; That in all that makes life
desirable, so far as nature has
made it, Flordi is not only the
peer, but the superior of any of
those great mines of agricultural
wealth in the states which we havs,

of latitude 31 degrees north, and
at its southern extremity where
lies that little gem of the sea; Key

the tropics. Thus we see that the
northern boundary of Florida is
about 7 degrees south ofthe south-
ern extremity of Italy. But the
summers are not rendered oppres-

ics, as many people at the North
and West believe. Even at Key

S_ SATURDAY, February a6th, .876.
2 Bdator of the Banner,
a '. fTu:-'o doubt the majority of
yntr readers tre familiar with the
taie of country herein spoken
atC I1 do not write for them, but
-Jy er these who stay at home,
S estsiders.' Quite recently in
-U.fany with friends from Geor-
gi t visited Orange Lake, the
8greter body of which is situated
is (this) Marion county and a por-
"on uin Alachua county, distant
From Silver Spring to the nearest
Voint about twenty miles. This
lake is quite large, abouttwenty-
two miles long, with an average
width o~~ five miles, and in certain
localities the water is of great
- depth. One half the surface, at
least, is covered with the "aqua-
etW' plant, known as the "bonnet,"
together with small floating is-
lands on' which there is a rank
growth of weeds, seemingly with-
out a particle of soil.
These islands and among the
bonnets seem to be the favorite
resort of the "gator," which in
warm weather may be seen in every
direction, and at night heard bel-
lowing like a parcel of mad bulls.
This lake has certainly been cor-
rectly named, bordered in its en-
tire. circuit by a high and wide
hammock of great fertility. On
the south side (the portion which
we visited) the growth of wild or-
ange trees is extraordinarily won-
derful-there are certainly a suf-
ficiency to plant out every acre of
Island in there State. As a general
Thing them are hundreds of acres,
and the trees are so close together
as to make it difficult ot penetra-
tion. In addition to this there are
absolute millions of seedling un-
dergrowth trees from two inches
to two'or three feet in height, the
variety of fruit being sour and bit-
ter-sweet-the larger trees are
laden with it.' To one unaccus-
tomed to the sight of an orange
: grove, the reality is startling, ex-
tremely captivating, filling you
with admiration-the number of
trees, the quantity of fruit here,
can scarcely be exaggerated.
t: his immediate section is in the
S very heart of the orange region,
and we' are informed all these
hammock lands immediately on
the lake six or Seven years ago
Could have been-purchased for
from three to five dollars an acre,
and in the lighter lands the own-
ers would have been glad to have
gotten rid of them for payment of
taxes. The "orange fever" has
proved an "Alladia Lamp" to the
fortunate possessors. These very
lands this djy, (I mean only those
offered for sale,) will bring in the
maarket from $75 to $200 per acre.
The general ideaIsi that sweet or-
ange groves succeed bettter near
water, being less subject to frost;
the budded trees also take on a
more rapid growth-this latter I
think a mistake, judging from fine
groves have seen in other parts

of the State. There are many
splendidd groves of sweet oranges
budded ,on sour stocks around the
Slake:, some groves also of sweet
veeddlings. One of the finest iand
largest of the former is that of Mr. r
J. A. Harris, probably as large as t
S any in the State. All his trees
are uncommonly vigorous. His i
plan is to bud upon the stocks in
their natural position, thinning
out the'trees, giving the budded
tree sufficient distance, cutting
down and piling in the field the
large trees of the natural growth
of the hammock, there left to de-
.dyand enrich the soil. It is quite
curiosity to go through a por- t
tion of his fields and see the great y
number of immense trees; oak
hickory, magnolia, felled and piled a
in every direction, completely hid-
iog the orange stumps; they are
there, however, and in numbers, o
Whilst the orange trees are in- i
efeasing in size the piles of timber t
are diminishing, and by the time s
the trees are in full bear ing the l
ground will be unobstructed, for a
in this climate a log-heap decays c
rapidly. Pur party were delight- p
ed. with Mr. Harris' grape-iruit
antd .citron trees-the fruit are the


finest I have yet seen. The grape-
fruit to our taste is very desirable,
it is sub-acid and delicious when
properly prepared with sugar. Mr.
H. has nearly finished gathering
his orange crop, wishing to give
his young trees every advantage of
growth. We found everything
about the farm in fine condition.
From this grove, taking passage
at Stewart's landing, upon the
only schooner on the lake, a* trim
little vessel of eight tons, laden
with fence posts and a plenty of
spirituous ballast, not of the
"Jimmy Kia" nor of the "Ply-
mouth Rock" tribe, but "pure
Florida juice." At the especial
venture of our "skipper," we hoist-
ed sail, cast off lines and away!-
not so fast!-no windl-we had to
pule it-making sure headway,
but awfully slow, arriving at our
destination two hours in the night;
distance, according the "skippers"
log-book, seven miles since 10
o'clock, a. m.
Judge Means' sugar place on
the lake, where he also has a steam
saw mill and a fine young orange
grove from seedlings four year's
old, the trees are exceedingly well
grown and have every indication
of bearing this year.
Budding upon sour stocks, se-
lecting bearing trees, will yield
fruit the third year whereas from
seedlings, unless remarkable well
grown, it requires from five to sev-
en years, so I am informed, the
yield of fruit increasing each year
as the tree develops.
Orange culture is like every
othe farming operation requires
careful and constant attention and
cultivation, and to be successful
the trees must not be suffered to
take care of themselves; judicious-
ly enriching the soil, careful prun-
ing, regular examination of the
trees are absolutely necessary.
The more rapidly the tree is de-
veloped the sooner and in greater
ablIndance will be the fruit; sormee
growers practice a semi forcing
system for the first three or four
years so as to produce a vigorous
growth making the tree less liable
to disease and blight. Once the
grove is fully established, the trees
large and well grown, it must be a
very severe spell of cold weather
to injure them seriously. Florida
Orange culture is yet in its infan-
cy, there are hundreds of groves ,
being started all over the State,
this year nothing untowardfhap-
pening more than double the num-
ber of these will come in bearing
than last year.- Calculate the
income from a grove of ten acres
one hundred trees to the acre each
tree bearing an average of one ,
thousand oranges at one cent each
(and it will be many year yet they
are reduced to this price,) a tree of l
full bearing capacity will yield
double and treble this number and \
there are trees which have been ,
known to yield four thousand fine
ripe fruits. We had the pleasure t
of visiting the banana and orange, s
grove of Mr. A. L. Eichelberger
near Ocala. t
He has forty-five acres undercul- t
tivation and scarcely a foot of land a
but what is made to yield some- \
thing. He has five acres in sugar S
cane with irish potatoes between t
the rows, many of the latter up
and growing vigorously, drawing \
the earth from the cane to the s
potatoes is the cultivatio each re- t
quires, There are twelve acres in b
bananas, and to us, the grove was o
a extraordinary sight, the plants i;
averaging a highth of eighteen feet, o
the stalk pi'oducing the fruit dies o
down after its mission is filled, new o
shoots taking its place, each stalk c
producing one bunch only. The O
fruit blosom is at the end of the d

fruit stalk and is of a dark purple d
color, when fully open, the flower
is extremely rich and beautiful. u
There are four thousand orange j
trees on the place with a large t
number of limes, citron and lemon n
trees, half an acre in straw berries, 1
twelve acres in peaches and grapes a
alternating with oranges. One acre p
in peas in bearing, one acre in snap f,

and although new, it has a rich u

bunches of banans still banging on :
the tall stalks, the word was "help a

ginig of a sour orange hedge all'
around the place which will in a s
few years enable him to bid de- a]

Cattle Breeding in Monroe Count:
FORT OODKN, Feb. 20, 1876.
To the Editor of the Banner:
Dear Sir!-This day I request
your company on an excursion t
the table lands of Thibet, or o
Tartary in Asia; or if you should
prefer it, we will visit beautiful
Australia; or we go to the Pam
pas of Squth America; or, should
you object to a sea-voyage, w
travel by rail to Texas; or, t
make the journey as short as pos
sible, we go only to Monroe count
in your own State, and in all thes
countries you will see and lean
the same, with only slight differ
ences. A great number of the in
habitants of all the before men
tioned countries, are cattle breed
ers, and lead an entirely nomadic
or anyhow, a semi-nomadic o
pastoral life.
The first occupation which
every race of men, and ever
nation followed, when they emerg
ed from the barbarous state, wa
the pasturing of their domesticate(
animals; and as long as the count
ries were only thinly settled, as i
is still the case in Thibet and ir
Tartary, men were and are (in th(
two last named countries,) wan
during about with their flock
from place to place, or they ar
leading a nomadic life. And, whet
the population in such countries,
increased, the-nomads were com-
pelled to herd their cattle on land
allotted to them, or on their owr
lands, and the nomadic life was
changed into a pastoral life, whicl
to this day exists, and which if
one of the most pleasant, and a
the same time most lucrative oc

meant of horned cattle, as it is car
tried on in Florida, we will join
the herdsmen, or "cow boys," at
they are called, upon their pere-
grinations in the search for stray
cattle, and we will assist them in
their branding or marking o:
young animals, and help them to
gather and to drive the cattle,
which are destined for market.
The first thing we want is, a
box of matches, pipe and tobacco,
then we take some ground coffee
in a linen-bag, and fill our saddle
bags with biscuits; we buckle our
blankets and a tinupot to our sad-
dles, and so equipped we mount a
stout pony and crack our farewell
with' a short handle, but long
whip, which is platted from cow-
hide. One or the other of the
cowboys will carry a gun with
him, to supply us with fresh veni-
son, and the cavalcade w1' be fl-
owed by a number of individuals
of the canine species. All that
modus operandi is here called a
These preliminaries over, we
turn our backs to the settlement,
aind the idyelic life commences.
Singing and caroling we trot along
throughh the primitive pine forests;
lere our dogs start a herd of deer,
short chase and one of these
beautifull animals is slain, quickly
skinned, and the haunches hung
o our saddles. Now we enter a
ungle, do you see the dogs fo/low-
ng cautiously a trail, with their
nouts close to the ground, and
he hair bristling upon their
acks?-they are upon the track
of a carnivorous animal We
bilow them they are at bay afc an
ld oak tree and commence a furl-
us barking. Close to the trunk
f the tree we perceived a panther
rouched on one of the branches.
)ur unerring rifle soon brings it

own, to the-great delight of the
logs. Now we disturb a flock of
aroquets, which were feeding
apon acorns, and fluttering about,
oin us in our carol. A mile or
wo farther, and we arrive at a ro-
antic spot. A rivulet of trans-
arent water expands, and forms
small lake, which is encircled by
)aim and oak trees. A low moan-
Al sound salutes our ears, we have
isturbed a herd of cattle, which

The real cow boys commence

hem are fast asleep; but we, the
amateur cow boys are so enchant-

vhich surround us, that-god Mor-

was inhabited by.Abraham Palmer,

ignated from an old stove, and was
detected too late to save the furniture
of the inhabitants.

We call the attention of our readers
to the communication from Citizen. In
every enlightened community the great-
est care is taken, to have good schools,
and good school-houses, where the
growing generations can be instructed.
To our sorrow the buildings of onr
public" schools are entirely neglected,
and without a good school-house, the
greatest ornament, of a city, we will
look in vain% for immigration. We
'hope that all our citizens will respond
to the call, and support with all their
energies the most laudable proposal.

The Colored Literary Society
of Ocala.
We have received with pleasure the
information, that the colored citizens
of Ocala have organized about a month
ago a debating club under the name:
"The Centennial Literary Society,"
which is presided over by Mr. W. J.
At their weekly meetings, which are
held every Friday night, at the colored
school-house, practical questions are
discussed, to train the minds of the
members to sound thinking and logi-
cal reasoning, and to assist the develop-
ment of their oratorical faculties.
Last Friday night an imaginary
case of assault with attempt to murder
was tried, in which the counsels for
the prosecution and defence displayed
a good deal of sound judgment and
wit. As long as the discussions of the
society remain in the bounds of practi-
cal knowledge, great benefits to the
members and final success will be
achieved, but should their debates as-
sume a political tendency, the failure
is as certain.
We hope that all the colored youths
and men of Ocala will join the society,
to improve their intelectual faculties,
and the fruits of their discussions will
be soon apparent.
Why a society of this kind cannot
be got up among the young white men
of our town, we cannot see, is it for
lack of the proper spirit? we think so,
a dance or a tournament club, can, we
have no doubt, be easily formed, but
anything for their true advantage and
profit seems hard to get up. Come
young men, make a move, such a so-
ciety could be made interesting and
profitable to you, and interesting to our
community. Let us see a start made.

Our Seminary.
Among improvements greatly needed,
and in fact, absolutely indispensable, is
the repairing of the seminary- A few
hundred dollars expended now Will
preserve this edifice for years, other-
wise, a building that cost several thou-
sand dollars, will soon be a hopeless
ruin. Few are aware, of the real con-
dition of the seminary; but a careful in-
spection will convince any one that it
connot long stand as it is. The sills
are entirely decayed. The roof is in a
like condition. A large hole was made
in it, last year, by a falling" tree, and
there are other places that leak badly.
A new roof is indispensable, and other
repairs are imperatively demanded..
During the past year the Board of Trus-
tees have endeavored to procure the

Mayor's Court.
His HONOR, T. P. GARY, Presiding.
Tuesday, February 22nd.
Last Monday night about 12 o'clock,
a lively performance was given at a dis-
orderly house in "Shinbone Alley,"
which was a honor to the name of
the alley, as many a shinbone received
a knock. The following morning the
after-piece was played at the Mayor's
court. His Honor investigated the
case most conscientiously and applaud-
ed the actors according to their merits.
Richard Holmes, $10 and costs, or
30 days; Charlotte Holmes, 82 and
costs, or 15 days; Butler Rountree, 82
and costs' or 15 days. All three for
disturbance and fighting, and in each
case the costs amounted to $4.05. The
case of Mary Vance, for keeping a dis-
orderly house, was dismissed for want
of sufficient evidence. All four are
colored. The lesser fines were payed.
R. Holmes was hired out for the term
of 30 days, and his wages will enrich
the corporation.
As the procession moved off, the
band struck up the funeral march, to
the tune of:
"Sallie, S illie, Sallie,
Sally in the alley."
We hope our city marshal will en-
davor, to protect the shinbones in
Shinbone Alley.
Thursday, February 24th.
As the curtain drew up in the May-
or's court, Ollie Leman, the "prima
donna" of Shinbone alley, came for-
ward and made a charitable donation
of $10 and costs lo the town.
Sam Small, alias Binney, wagged his
tongue too freely in court. He contrib-
uted 82 and costs for contempt.

they absorbed the business conduc.ed by

i^ A surgeon-general of the Uni-
ted States, after giving statistics
to prove the
iholomparison with all other parts
of the Union, sums up his evidence
thus; "In short, it may be asser-
tedwithout fear of refutation, that
Florida possesses a much more
agreeable and salubrious climate
than any other State or Territory
in the Union."
In this report on the climate of
Florida, published in the London
Times Surgeon-Gen. Star says;
"After thorough study of climate
in different parts of the world, and
a recent stay of more than two
months in Florida, I am satisfied
that the weight of argument is in
favor of that State. I am prepar-
edpto stake my reputation that in
the interior of this State, on the
high, dry pine lands, is to be found
as pure, balmy, invigorating at-
mosphere as in any other part of
the globe." Again he speaks of
the "central part of the State
having a pre-eminence for health,
that no other part of the world I
know of presents."
These facts are forcing them-
selves upon the attention of inva-
lids and pleasure-seekers in other
c'^ countries. Year by year the num-
'be swells of those who seek relief
in this genial climate from the
wintry storms that threaten their
quick dissolution. During the
past year over 45,000 people visi-
ted the people State as has been
shown by actual record; and this
year the number will undoubtedly
be greatly augmented. Thousands
come to find a permanent home,
and all jvho csme expressgthem-
selves mere than satisfied.

powerful yet sweet.-Rural Nem Yorker.
