THE SEMINARY BARRACKS.


THE FINISHING TOUCH NOW BEING PUT
*ON THE BUILDING THAT IN FUTURE IS
TO BE THE ABIDING PLACE OF THE CA-
DETS.
The long-talked of barrack of ,the East
Florida Seminary is at last a reality, and
a large and commodious building now
graces the east end of the school grounds.
The building is a large two-story frame
building 195 feet long by 95 feet wide
with 65 rooms and- a large mess hall.
The rooms are la rge and sufficiently ven-
tilated, and will in every instance prove
a comfortable place of residence for oc-
cupants. In the central part of the
building is situn'ted a large courtyard of
sufficient size to allow each room a firont-
ing. Piazzas extend the. entire length
of three sides of the court yard, and on
the front qf the building, on the south,
is a fourth piazza.
A num1e. of cadets have already taken
up rooms in the building and have oc-
cupied them for the, past two weeks, and
testify their satisfaction with the rooms,
as well as their entire comfort. The
Professors of the institution will occupy
the front part of the building. Wheo
the cadets return after the Christm" .
holidays, the whole corps on- rs de4

abode in the barrack, and rigid military
discipline wiil be observed by the cornp.
mandant and cadet officers. The rooms
are each large enough for two occupants,
and the furnishings of the room such as
iron bedsteads, washstands, stoves, have
been provided for the cadets. They will
provide their own bedding.
The cadets in general do not altogether
relish the idea of strict discipline "at al
hours of the day," but they hope that it
will be eventually, for their welfare, and
are accordingly resigned. The wire-
netting, employed as ornaments for the
windows, is universally conceded to be
"just the thing to keep the mosquitoes
in"

In sending out the first issues of MILI-
TARY MUSINGS it does not seem amiss to
dwell for a few moments on the superior
advantages possessed by Florida as an
educational centre, and on the excellent
schools that the State has within her
borders. This is indeed an inducement
to the youth of other States who come
among us and may at the same time ob-
tain an excellent education. Gainesville
is particularly advantageous in this re-
spect as it possesses some of the finest
institutionss of learning in the State, as
s evinced by the fact that about six
hundred children are in attendance at
the vadirous schools within her limits.
The-salubrity of climate, geographical
Situation, and semi-tropical productions
n every way-merit the attention of those
who settle among us. Gainesville is sit-
Lated in the midst of the great orange
growing and farming section of Florida,
Mnd acts as the distributing point for
supplies of the immediate- vicinity.

Thee'Largest Farm In the World.
From the Missour Republican.
In the extreme southwestern corner of
Louisiana lies the largest producing farm
in the world. It runs 100 miles north
and south and twenty-five miles east and
west, and is owned and operated by a
syndicate or Northern caprtali4ts. Their
general manager, J. B. Watkius gives
an interesting account of this gigantic
plantation, which throws the great Dal-
rymple fIarm of Dakota into the shade
completely. He was cornered by a Post
reporter at the St. James hotel aud asked
to give the particulars of his gigantic
enterprise. "The 1,500,000 acres of
land in our tract," Mr. Watkins said,
"was purchased in 1383 from the State
of Louisidnna and from the United
States Government. At that time it was
a vast grazing land for the cattle of the
few dealersrfthe neighborhood. When
I took possession I found over 30,000
head of half-wild horses and cattle. My
first work was to divide the Immense
S.-' tract into convenient pastries. establish-
ing stations or ranches every six miles.
The fencing alone post in the neighbor-
hood of $50,000. .Tlie land I found to be
best adapted to rice, sugar, corn ad cot-
ton.
"'All our cultivating, ditching, etc., is
done by steam power. We take a tract,
say half a mile wide for instance, and
'place an engine at each side. These en-
gines are portable, and under this ar-
rangement we are enabled to plow thirty
acres a day with only the Labor of three
, men. Our harrowing, plantingarndother
cultivating is done in like manner. In
fact, there is not a draught-horse on the
entire place. We have, of course, horses

now have 16,000 head. The Southern-
Pacific railroad runsfor thirty-six miles.
through oufr farm. We have three'
steamboats operating on the, waters of
our own estate, upon which there are
300 miles of navigable waters. We have
an ice factory, a bank, a ship yard and
rice mill." ..
The rails for the Orlando street rail-
road have arrived annd will be put downL
at once. All the rails and material have
been paid for and the company is in good
shape. By the first of-January they
hope to have thee'ar- rnunin in various

ing just been in the Sotlthdrn part of the
State.
Some cadets mnist. have flourishing
vegetable gardens. We judte by the
sample of Irish potatoes brought, to
school.
Very few of the cadets will spend
Xmas in Gainesville. Most of them are
-.JMH o fotbrw'ard to home and soJmet.titl)
to eat.
Some cadets are getting so atraichd to
the daily drill that they will stay ten
minutes after the others have been dis-
Imissed.
TaH MustNGB has received some erry
ucouraging pufl's fror the papers 01'the
State. The editors are accordingly puf-
el-up. .
The eadat; are not yet in the barrack
but will probably be there soon. Orders

Recent news from Cadet Garvin, whoi
is on 'ick leave, tells us that be hai al-
most recove-re fiom his severe illness.
This i certainly good news and we shall
welcome his rettru.
Last Tuei-day thle company was divid-
e4 .'eqUtally into two platoons to: be com-
manded by Lietits. Haile and Shaylor
for special instruction in the sch.-.ol of
the company. We wish them rapid pro-
gress. -
The Artillery squads have graduated.
By order of the Commandant. Inf'iitry
drill will be practiced until further or-
ders. We wish to congratulate Lieut.
Shaylor on his stccees a. Commander ofl
Artillery.
The writing teacher of the Normal
classes is doing good work, and we ex-
pect he will apply for a position as writ-
ing teacher in some noted school ere
long. His self-estimation has risen since
Ilis last application for work in A class.


NORMAL NOTES.


Thle following questions were dis-'
cussed in the "B" Normal:
"Is it well to give lessons as punish-
ment, if so, why'?"
"Is it a good plan for the teacher of a
district school to visit the parents of the
pupils?'"
. "If VouL were.teaching school would-


you.gire recess or not,.and_.vhy?"
"What would you do if you were
teaching aind found yourself wishing
that a very badl pupil would not come to
school?"'
The "B"class have completed metlii-
odt in geography and have taken uIjp
methods in writing.

SIMILES.

Says a writer: "Speak ofa mail's mar-
ble brow, and he will glow n ith consciotis
pride; but; illutde to his wooden head and
he is mad in a minute."
A young lecturer's simile- were gath-
ered it a heap when he said: "'0 my
brethren, the snowiest shirt front, may
conceal an achiug bosom, a.id the stiffent.
est of all collars encircle a throat that
hai many a bitter pill to wa allow !"

The new one-dollar silver certificates
have the likeness of Mrs. George Wash-
ington. A hard money paper says thlti
they couldn't put George's phiz on, be-
ca.ise he never told a lie.
