Site the tefpperature of the atmosphere fall, as distance frpm the
equtotr inatekCis, one degree of depression to every added degree of
latfftde, aid stltie, moreover, the thermometer fll one degree for
evPy 00 6et ii. Altitude, Florida being so near the equator and so lit-
tle' abov the sea Teyi, might be thbugIt frod tlie4 premises to be very
hot; bat there are other influences which must also be taken into the
account to reach the' truth. Terere are dozens of rivers, and smaller
streams courting over tile surface; then lakes in Florida are thicker
than thie stares n the skes; and some of tbem eea deep. The evapo
ration from these streams and lakes and from the Gulft hard by on the
one side, 'had the Atlantic on the other, rapidly consumes or absorbs
the heat of the sun just as water sprinkled upon the floor absorbs the
beat of a room; and this process is more' rapid, because as the vapor
rises and takes all the heat it can render insensible, the breezes from
the Atlantic or Gulf bear it away and supply it with other vapor, per-
forming the same office in the cooling process; consequently, as a mat-
tar of tact, the thermometer in summer rises higher in New York, Bos-
ton, and Montreal than in St. Augustine, Tampa, and Key West. Sun
stroke, with its terrors, so frequent in the cities, and, indeed, in the .
country North, 1i never known in Florida.
Another item to be taken into account when searching for the causes
of higher temperature in summer of places north of Florida, is the fact
that the days in summer are longer as we proceed northward, and the
nights shorter. There is, consequently, less time for throwing off or
radiating the heat from the sun during the day until his return with
new supplies.
The rainy season in Florida is in the summer months, when the show-
ers cool the atmosphere and refresh the crops. During these months
the average moisture is slightly greater than in the States further north.
Observation and experiment show, however, that the humidity of Flor-
ida in summer is only 1.07 greater than that of Minnesota, while in the
winter months-Florida's dry season-the moisture is less than in Min-
nesota by 1.08 degrees.
Is exceedingly diversified, and in its varied character is suited not only
to the crop of the bthet States generally, but because of its near ap-
proach to a tropical clime, to some products not grown elsewhere in the
other states.
The soil I generally classed as first, second and third rate pine lands,
and as high and low hammock anl swamsp lands. The pine lands cover
much those large portion of the, State, and the traveler. in the trains, or

late sand loam, mixed for the most part with limestone pebbles, and
resting on a substratum of marl, clay or limestone rock. The fertility
and durability of this description of land must be estimated from the well
known fact that it has on the upper Suwannee, and several other dis-
tricts, yielded during 14 years of successive cultivation, without the aid
of manure, 400 pounds of Sea Island cotton to the acre, the lands are as
productive as ever, so that the limit of their durability is still unknown.
High hammock lands, in reference to these lands we quote from the
same author: "There is one feature in the topography of Florida which
no other country in the United States possesses, and which affords a
great security to the health of its inhabitants, it is that the pine lands

which form the basis of the country, and which are almost universally
healthy, are nearly everywhere studded at intervals of a few miles with
the rich hammock k land. These hammocks are not, as is generally sup-
posed, low, wet lands; they do not require ditching or draining. They
vary in extent from twenty acres to forty thousand acres. Hence the
inhabitants have it in their power to select residences in the pine lands,
at such convenient distances from the hammock as will enable them to
cultivate the latter without endangering their health, if it should so hap-
pen that any of the inhabitants prove to be less healthy than in the pine
lands. Experience has shown that residences only half a mile distant
from cnltivated hammocks are exempt from malarial diseases, and the
negroes who cultivate and retire at night to pine landresldencee main-
taft their health. Indeed, ft is found that residences in the hammocks
are gntrally healthy after they have been a few ye.rs cleared. This
olist of lands, under favorable circumstances, have produced as much
as three hogsheads of sugar per a4 re. ,

As an investment for a future Income there is nothing surer in this country, for
the reason that the crop is sure every year; also, sahr they censmene to bear,
the flret two years' crop will naually pay fobr aR Opense In matunri the Rrove.
Including a liberal amount for Interest on the nvrentment The older orange trees
get, the better they become, up to a hundred years old. They require care and
attention, and if this is given them there Is no tree in the country that shows a
more rapid growth than the orange-the healthy, thrifty trees have no enemies.
It is the neglected groves., with the ground overrun with weeds, and the trees
with deadwood and insects, that beonme stuatedead sow In thb growth

With all these facts in view, and they are facts and not theories, can the limited
amount of land in Florida adapted to growing the orange sucoestully, overdo
the orange production-when you bear in mind you have 4 months in which to
market your crop, also a yearly growing foreign demand, during December and
January, for this, the most delicious of all oranges? We answer no! And u
you investigate the enormous consumption of oranges, you will readily ee that

To-day in desirable locations in Florida you can buy a grove just compendlag

see the profits in the enterprise. Where els in this country can you get sunoh re-

The article on the ost and product of Orange Grovt, many will sy is
largely overdrawn. Any assertion made In this paper 1 am prepared to hbak up
