ILoses of the Vatican.
ROME, July 14.--Some additional
communications from reliable sources
in regard to the crisis in the St. Peter's
pence have just come to hand. It is
known that the pope has dismissed
Mgr. Folchiuand the old administra-
tion on account of the losses sustained
by St. Peter's pence and because of im-n
prudent investment and loans which
had been mnde under his administra-
tion. It is now known that last winter
Mgr. Folchi, in order to save the Banco
di Roma, in which the vatican held 10,-
000 out of 12,000 shares, besides other
securities, endeavored to establish
banks first in Paris and in London and
afterward in Rome, Berlin ana New
In this he was not successful, and it
was thought that the fall"of Mgr. Fol-
chi had put everything in peril. When
Mgr. Folchi took over the administra-
tion of hthe vaian finances he had un-
der his control about 25,000,000 lire. He
left after eight years' administration
about 31I(?00,000 lire, of whiuh, how-
ever, 6,000,000 are rtill in danger, as it
consists of loans made to Roman
princes and of a large amount of depre-
ciated securities. At the same time
Mgr. Folchi has paid over each year to
the pope the sum of 12,000 lire to cover
the extraordinary expenses of the vat-
ican. Consequently Mgr. Folchi's ad-
versaries can only reproach him with
making imprudent investments and
with the affair of the Catholic banks.

years 1f age. This minimum limi t of
age to 15 ycars will be adhered to in the

oflcamagua Park Appraisers.
ATLANTA, GA., July 14.-Judge New-
nan, in the United States district court
to-day, appointed J. B. Hill, Joseph A.
U. and S. H. Wheeler appraisers for
Chicamagua and Chattanooga national
park property. This covers 7,500 acres,
embracing 126 separate tracts of land.
Speculators ha-e put up the value of
this property to exorbitant figures, and
some recent purchasers will be out of

we proceeded to the dining-room,

country dinner, consisting of every-
thing pleasing to the palate of man,

of "good cook." We ate heartily and
enjoyed it. After dinner, the ladies

fun while being led through the
streets of our town. They showed
their wildness by plunging right
Into the crowd that stood around
them. We understand they belong
to parties at Boardman.
SAnother one'of our farmers comes
to the frout.'with a field of corn, con-
sistiffg of three acres that will aver-
age 40 bushels to the acre. Claulde
i Fnk is the man, and we are Ire-gil-
ning to get, the idea into our head
that Florida is becoming quite a corn
state. Claude's place is only about,
Three miles from this'town.
The pnartyatthe residence of Mrs.
W. V. Brice Tuesday ev.ninp, kitvfl
by the "Little Buds" was a"grand
success. A large crowd were present
and a goo4 time experienied. Music

time away. Sorry work prevented
oufputting iuv r alpp,-rniece. .

andlthe entire afternoon was con-
sumed almost in that appreciated
pastime. It was badly needed and
did great good to our farming popu-

t lborida weaither-cool and pleasant.
We notice by the Gainesville Sun
that Misses Mary and Sallie Pendle-

Leesburg, are expected i.n Gsines-
ville to attend the Normal shortly.
They are both well knownbhere,, and
their many trends would be pleased
to receive a visit ere they return, home.
Sunday evening as "ye devils" were
passing up the street en route for
church, they heard an ,awful sound
coming from the residence of L. H.
Johnson, near TiE imNEWS office and
thinmlig some one was sick stpl.-.,I

Remember that, though the dull
season is on'hand, I. Heyman is still
doing an astonishingly cheap trade.
You should-go there and get a bar-
gain. All kinds of millinery goods,
hats, bonnets, clothing, dry-goods,
groceries, and, in tact, anything you
want .can be found there, with that
polite -gentleman, Watt Smith, to
wait onfyou. See ad. in this paper.
We learn with surprise that Miss
Alice D. Porter, of Green Cove
Sprigs, who was for several days a
.compositor on this paper, has lately
launched out upon the sea of matri-
mony, and we trust her newly
launched bark may have a happy and
prosperous .voyage down the river
of time and land safely in that land-
locked harbor of eternal happiness.
Bill Carter informs us that Charlie
Owen left here with his pockets filled
with knives, etc., his gold watch and

pecting to strike a trade, but with no
money, with the intention of draw-

are co ncerned,- W',eier or not t; e J.
T,'& K. W. people will force a suit on"
the appeal bond we cannot yet say; but
) it appears to us as ,it it will be against
' their interest to do so, as the interest is
r :accumulating at a rapid rate, and the
r, additional costs will swell the total to
r very formidable figures. Of course the
loss to the railroad company is very
heavy; but the loss. to' Tavares is, anI
has 'been, still heavier. Two hundred
' thusahd dollars (if money would not re-
place this town as it stood on the 8th of
April, 1883. More than two-thirds of
Sour population has been, lost; industries
have been destroyed and a paralyzing
check given to the growth and prosper-
ty of the town. B~esid]es we have los
the natuaal progress of the past three
y'eal, and have been put track to where"
we sfood in 1884. It, appears to us that
the railroad company should accept its
defeat gracefully and~pay up. It made
a desperate- 1egal fight, and all that, le-
gal talent and. money could secure was
employed by it. To" force the victorious
plaintiNInow to "sue on the bond wil
prolong the inevitable, ,but cannot pre-
vent ultimate payment. There is no
hostility to the J. T. & K, W. in this
town. To the contrary, there is a ,gen-
eral feeling; of friendliness towards it,
and this feeling can be :easily increased
by promptly settling the damage claims.

Realizing at XLast that Its Fruits Are Not
Yet The Best. /
From the San' Francisco Call.
The fruit canning season opened a
. few' days ago, and the members of the
new canning combine are cogitating
over their prospects. A few facts are
patent to all. The fruit crop is large
cid the uantity of canned fruit put
nt,^*rt ).aa 1.*! --^ -*.. F~ -uLMU lUM,
f year, if Wie rices offered by camners
are sufficient to call it out.
By the time the whole fruit crop is
picked, in the East and on this coast,
/jobbers will be able to reckon it up
wfth some approach to accuracy and
to determine what they can afford to
pay for canned fruit. Of course there
is a price at which they will take our
whole product. People will eat all
the canned fruit that is offered if it is
cheap enough. But when the markets
are glutted, consumers grow fastid-
The competition which we are about
to witness will prove beneficial if it
awakens our fruit growers to the
knowledge that the peaches grown in
New Jersey, Maryland and Delaware
are excellent, and if our canned peach-
es are to conquer the market of the
great valleys they must be at least
equal if not better goods than the
grocers of Chicago can get from New
York or Philadelphia. I *is wasting
time and money to ship inferior goods.
Of two fruits we have practical mo-
nopoly. One of these is apricots,
which are not grown in commercial
quantities in the East. In this state
we raise them in carload lots, and
there is no fruit which is more luscious
or more ,wholesome when it is proper-
ly canned. Whether the business of
earning them has reached perfection,
or whether, in consequence of the ab-
sence of, competition, it is carelessly
conducted, persons not in the trade
are not able to judge. But one thing
experience teaches, When canned ap-
ricots are dear or are inferior in quali-
ty, people consume canned peaches in-
stead. It rests with the canners to
decide whether we shall receive the
full benefit of a market of which we
now enjoy a monopoly.
The prune is another fruit in which
we have no Eastern competition. It
is impossible to convert the Eastern
plum into a dried prune that will sell,
Our pjums are naturally suited for
drying. Between the California prune
and the German and French prune it
is sometimes hard to choose. The Eu-
ropean fruit has generally a fine flav-
or, but the California fruit is so much
larger and better looking that quite |
often it sells for more money in NewI
York and Chicago. The prune prom-
ises to be quite as profitable a fruit to
raise in thi~state as the apricot. We
shall this year have something like
5,C00,000 pounds of prunes available
for export, whichis equivalent to25,
000,000 pounds of plums; the prunes
are now worth about 10 cents a pound,
or 2 cents for the green fruit, but Cali-
fornia pi unes were wanted last year at
15 cents at Chicago, and they have sold
as high as 20 cents. Very few of our
horticultural products sell as high as
In fruit, as in everything else, it is
quality that tells. It is the best goods
that bring in money; second-class
goods frequently net a loss. Califor-
nia is fitted to become the orchard of
the world. But It will not become so
