Florida Lands.
Special to the Tines Democrat.
Large investments of English.
capital in Florida lands, mainly with
a viaw to sugar raising, have recenL-
ly been made, and according to ir,
Phillip floughtoun Clark, who sailed
-for London this morning on the
*Alaska, still ,arger investinents are
probable in the near future. 11e
represents an English company
which already owns a large body of
land in Florida, and has b>;vn travel-
ing in that SLate lor two months,
exalnining the lands recneltlv re-
claimed I1y tile Dission -Land .>m-
pany, ol Phfiladelphia, with lde
object of reporLing on their value to
his principals.
Previous to his departure, he said:
Thereijv a great interest among the
,.Eogliah people in Florida. At, this
time there is a good deal of capital
lying idle in Lonfon, which has
heretofore been invested in agricul-
tural projects, but which has been
withdrawn on account of the un-
satisfactory condition of things in
England and Ireland. The conse-
quence is that lnuch of this money
has been turned toward America,
and I should think there are projects
involving 1,000,000 pounds in Flori-
da land companies now on the
London market. I have traveled
extensiyely in Florida, this being
my second visit, and 1 was much
impressed wit!h the value of the
land ibr sugar raising purposes.
On my return to London I- shall
organize a company for the purpose
of going into the business on a
large scale.
'The whole country south of par-
allel 28 is suitable for sugar. The
land is rich, and there are no frosts
which injure the can'e.
The operations'of the Okeechobee
Drainage Company have proved most
satisfactory. Thle object of the
Company is not as has been supposed
to drain swamp lands, as there are
few warshes in Florida,, but -to re-
duce the waters of the lakes, in
whiih the country abounds, and
which overflow at certain seasons
of thG-year and interfere withi agri-
cultural '"operations. By cutting
two a -lort cauals this year'`alarge
?uniount.of, tand, has beo:u made tit
Ior -cuUJialjj.n, ,ndl arrangements
*hbtge system ,of, canals ,which. will
reo'aim millions .of acres of the best
sugar laus in the world. The
English : companies wJ-l colonizC
their'|anfs next rall, and I haveiho
doubt but t Vat tile emigration nmove-
ment will result in great advantage
to the State and open new commer-
cial enterprises of vast importance
Among (rc 4r enterprises a steani-
ship comi.iny from Liverpool to Fer-
.nhndinii is projected, which will
brig emigrants direct to Florida.

An Ameommodatinu Salesman,
"In one of our surburban cities
theproprietor made a rule, that no
"man wko failed to sell to.one of
three customers who came in succ'Cs-
sion %jould be retained in tie estab-
lishment. One fellow, when he
found lhimself on' the eve of 1os~ing
a thiird customer, was oliliged ted0
a rascally thing to secure her. She
came in with ten yards of calico, a
remnant which she had juist bought,
and shie wanted a yard and a half
more. She said slhe had been Jall-
over town in a vain search o get if
matched. The salesman looked
over all his goods, and couldn't find
anythiing to suit her. Iet began to
be alarmed, When a bright thought
occurred to him. He put his, hand:
to his head all of a sudden, !as
though he ,'emenlbe,-ed something,

and said, 'Well, there, I1)elievel've.
got a remnant of the very identical
piece of goods all the tirde up stairs.
I'll run up aud see.' He took her
piece of cloth under his armi, weut
upstairs deliberately cut off a yard
and a half from it, and brought
back the two pieces to her. She was
very much pleased at such an e-
cellent, match, and paid for tlhe yard
and. a half of her own calico with
n great deal of satiraction. She
ckme Imto the store next day and
said somebody had cheated her; but
the. fellow explained so plausibly to
'her .jhat she must havt got. short
measure at the place where she first
bought iher cloth that she started
for that store in high dudgeon. As
t-e fiasn't seen her simce he concludes
'thatt ihe oust bave met with some
-satisfaction there. But it was a
risky pieceof bhajness for him just
the saine."-Exchange. "

Mor people have road The San during the
yearjas now passing thitan ever before since it
was rot printed. No other newspaper publish-
ed on thidi side of the earth has been bought and
read iv any year by so many men and women.
We are credibly informed that people buy,
read, and like The San for the following reasons,
among others:
Because its news columns present in attract ive
form aud with.the greatest possible accuracy
whatever has ino]_t for humankind; the
events, the deeds 'misdeeds, the wisdom, the
pkilosophy, the nt 4e foly, the solid sense, the
improvg nDom reall the news of the busiest
wo.:rld at prese revolving in space.
Because people have. learned that in its re-
marks concerninug peruous and affairs The Sun
makes a practice of telling them the ex:act
truth oJhe best of its abillt UWee hundred and
sixty-fl4v days in the*year, before elKction as
well a after, about the whales p wells about
the smallfli in the face oLdetas plhinly
and feartefly as when srTporlted by general
approval. The dan has absolutely no purposes
to serve, save th6 information of its readers and
S* the furthrance of the co mmon good.
Because it i everybody's newspaper. No man
is so bumble that The Sun is indifferent to his
welfare and his rights. No man is so rich that
it can allow injustice to be done him. No man,
ho association of men, is powerful enouglfto be
exempt from the strict application of its princi-
ples o right and wrong.
Because In politics it has fought for a dozen
years, without intermission and sometimes
almost alone among newspapers, the fight that
has resulted in the recent overwhelmingpopular
verdict against Robesonism and for honest
government. No matter what party is in power,
The Sln stands and will continue to stand like
a rook for the interests of the people against the
ambition of bosses the en(coachments of
monopolists, and the dishonest schemes of public
^- robbers. '
AlI this is what we ire told almost daily by
our friends. One man holds tht The aSun 14
the, best religious newspaper ever pubHshed,
because its Chrlttianity is undilufd wth 6at-
Another holds thn it as th 6, e>

Mansfield, Ohio, Nov. 26, 1881.
Gentlemen:-I have suffered with
pai in my side and back, and great
soreness. on my breast, with sooe-
Ing pains all through my body, at-
tended with great weakness, depres-
sion of spirits, and loss of appe-
tite. I have taken several different
medicines, andwas treated by prom-
inent physicians for my liver, kid-
neys, and spleen, but I got no relief.
I thought I would try Brown's Iron
Bitters; I have now taken one bottle
and a half and am about well-pain
in side and back all gone-soreness
all out of my breast, and I have a
good appetite, and am gaining in
strength and flesh. It can justly be
called the king of medicines.

Mr. Editor:-The court house question
Is one of very serious importance. Alach-
ta claims to be the most progressive
county, and Gainesville the most pro-
gressive town in the State. Now, to
travelers and migrants, what does our
court house indicate? Does it denote en-
ergy, thrift, and prosperity? Does it
show a population wide awake to their
interests and future happiness? Is there
any marks of civilization about that
dingy, dirty, dilapidated, old building
that now occupies the court house
square? It is a disgrace to the age in
which we live. It is not only an utn-
sightly structure, but there is anl offen-
sive odor about It that makes it, unplea-
sant to the olfactory nerves of our county
officials, and any one else having business
thliere. Gainesville hias been aspiring to
the dignity of having the State capitol.
What a sad commentary on her success
is this. If this is the best that can be
done.in the way of a court house it
would be better to abandon the idea of
ever having the State capitol. It is earn-
estly hoped that our county commission-
ers will move in this matter, and at as
early a, day as possible commencethe
erection of a building that will be in StL-
cordlance with the spirit of the age-in
which we live. ALACHUA.

Small Pox.
SWhile there is reason for decisive ac-
tion In- regard to smnall-pox, thfere is not
the slightest occasion for a panic. Ex-
cept when grossly neglected, there is no
danger of small-pox 'becoming eitdemic
until the temperature-drops below furfty-
"e degrees. The hot dry Weather that
is approaching will alone suffice to pre-
vent any rapid spread, and the worst we
have to fears that the disease will smoul-
deralong, with a case here and a case'
there, insidiously planting iIts germs, un.-.
til the cold weather usherIu the condi-
tions for an epidemic. N'Vgorous action
now, aided by the hoc weather, will, we
confidently believe, renwve ," danger.
The Board of Health will have public
sentiment behind it in promptly carrying
out-all the necessary measures.--Times-
