Although it bha been more
than three hundred years ainoe
that portion of the new world
known as Florida was first et-
tied by civilized man, untilwith-
in a comparatively reoet period
It has been almost an unknown
country even to the Amearian
people, but during the pst two
decades the state has made
rapid progree In wealth and
population,. "She is no loer .
S unknownn" but in all the ele-
ments requisite and necesary
for the establishment of happy
'ad prosperous homes, she stands to-day the peer of
ay country on earth.
SThe State s the largest east of the Missiusspp
r river, having an area of 59,968 square miles. Of this
the ooest waters, bs, gulfs, sounds and harbor
are put down at 1,800 gure miles, rivers and smaller
Streams at 890, and lakes and ponds at 2,250, making
the whole water surfe 4,440 square miles, leaving

Having traveled through Southern California qutte tlMo
very largely through the State of Florida, It may oat be*pAoet sNt
as briefly as possible a few points of honest usmpealaaM. b atwe
Nothing Is to be gained by bearing bame witm Biemt eithe

statements about California, while ad agents and anewpapapm l lMt
have published the grossest landers and falseoods about Florld. db
things each State ha superior advantages over the other. Strifzlr 9
Florida is the Japan, while Southet Oalifornia is the Spain of thel~att

1.-In South California there are no toresto ; the whole lani uam Ilap

gardens and fruit trees show to the very best advantage. In Floriled th1q
are great forests which oonoeal from the eye of theralve U ar xa tkh
ohoioest improvements in the State. If the vast impiovemenatsn in l
could be laid out in unobstruoted viason It would be an ~a ant s et ti
2.-While California Is a very large country, the reatperto the -
portion is an uninhabitable desert The improvable portion s i-
hence the improvement are more compact and inteanled, while,
the improvable property extends over a st traoi, and the towb
aod Arms are soattered here and there over hundreds of nIe i t

3.--The temperature of Sopthen Oallfornia i less varliaMth ln
in the latter State it has more eilItydb, owing to the htrquaro
though it has no extremes of temperature.
4.-In Southern California you buy the water; i toF yOlrld

early everywhere studded at Intervals of a few miles with rich hammock
land varying in extent from twenty to forty thousand sores. Besidenmes only
half a mile from ueltivatd hammocks in any put of Florid are notably fre.
from malarial diseases, while residences on even the high bammock lands in
AlJachu County are generally found to be healthy.
"Oarl" Webber, In his euellent work, entitled The Eden of the South"
divides the lands of Al hbus County Into six classes, as follows: First; sec-
ond and third lass, pine lands, high and low hammock lands and swamp
lands. The fertility and durability of even third class pine lands has been
amply proven, and It has been established that pine swampy lands are not
without great value. That which appears to consist of a white sand soil on
/ third-las pine land is not all sand, which is seen by the eye. There is a mix-
ture.ot fine oomlninted bits of shells, or carbonate of lime, which furnishes
the plants of suoh region with an important elementof plant food. All seoond-
Glass pine lands are productive. Underlying the surface is clay, marl, lime
rook and mad. These lands are easily aooessible, prodmotive, cheaply fetil-
lad by cattle, and, by reason of their supposed healthfulness above hammook
lands, are most readily settled upon. The fertlliy of rstclass pine lands is
indeed wonderful, while the limit of their durability s still unknown. The
surfoe for several Inohes is covered with a dark vegetable mold, beneath
whoih to a depth of several feet is a chocolate sand loam, mixed for the most
part with limestone pebbles, and resting on a sub-strauz of marl, lay or
limestone. The hammock lands are the most productive. Both the high
and the low hammocks are generally admixed with lime, and the streams
running through them are impregnated with It more or less. High ham-
mook do4 t require ditching or draining. Low hammock generally require
ditehtO to relieve them of a superabundance of water, especially during the
raiPeason. They have a deeper soil and are generally regarded as more
lasMng than high hammocks. Low hammocks are especially fitted for the
nmtth of sugar-cane, as are also the swamp lands, which are held to be the
most dhble dAl lands in Florida. In Alaohua County hammock lands pre-
doimtea, Mpoet ~ peolsl In the belt of land running through the o water of
the eo femi the northwest to the southeast portion. The open hammock
landa ae haly and pebbly; the soil is a dark loam, underlaid with a chooo-
late colored, riable day. On the high mixed pine and hammock lands most
of t oldest, largest and most productive plant ions ar situated, although
a #lhae old platers preferred the firsolaes pine land for general rop-
pt, letor foerUlier cotton seed and pea-vines, by which means annual
