was no frost at all, even the most ten-

In most places in this region it was

lemon, "laid on our office-table" by
Col. this or Major that, with the usual
addition, "Who can beat that?"
Now, Messrs. Editors, we find that
the Northern fruit-dealer does not
want the large size oranges or lemons;
and why.? If you or I go to a fruit-
store in a Northern town, for one or
more oranges or lemons, the dealer
knows he can only get so much for one
orange or lemon, and yet the freight
on a box only holding one hundred, is
just as much as on a box holding two
hundred of smaller size, and just as
good a price per hundred can be ob-
tained tbr that number of, small or-
anges kif not too small) as -for the

lemons,; for, ifta person wants a lemon,
he will pay so much and no more; so
the dealer must provide his stock to
suit his customers. If, theretbre, ex-
perience tells us that we get a certain
price for a small-sized fruit, and can-
not get any more for a larger one. and

in all matters pertaining to the State's
material advancement and gradual
During long-continued trip through
the State your correspondent had a
very good chance to mark the progress
already made this season, and it must
be a source of great gratification to all
concerned to realize that the current, of
popular favor tfor Florida and Florida
homes is just as strong if nhot stronger
than it was last season. Take for in-
a thriving city of nearly one thousand
inhabitants, which was a,few years
ago a mere bantling of the wilderness.
To-day this town assumes a commei-
cial importance second to hone on the
St. Johns river. This town was settled
in 1875, by a New England co:louy,
the selection being made on account
of its peculiar adaptation to the grow-
ing of the lucious golden fruit.
To give an illustration of the com-
ing position of Orange City, as an ob-
jective point, for trade both in fruits
and vegetables it. may be well to give i
the following figures, obtained from a
very reliable source. :
For the month of January there
were shipped the following number
of boxes of oranges- from this port,
-1067. Freight received at this port,
369,606 lbs., or 2562 packages. Be-
sides this ,there were also 57 tons of
freight shipped from this place, show-
ing beyond doubt that it is an import-
ant shipping point along the St. Johns
river. This section is the centre of
nearly 500 acres of orange-growers,
in which, nearly 500, including non-
residents are engaged.
In this town is the celebrated "Beres-
ford" grove, while throughout the out-
the outskirts. are to be -seen some of
the most promising young groves in
Mr. Wm. Jackson is the real estate
agent, and parties seeking information
regarding this beautiful town should
write to him by sll means.
Situated nearly eight miles from Kissi-
mee City lies the new English town of
Runnymeade which can rejoice in
some of the most excellent farming
lands to be seen in the State.
The originator of this English col-
ony .was Mr. J. B.Watson, an English-
man "to the manor born Mr. Wat-

backed by. ample capital and good
practical sense, soon gave the. place

Over 500acres of land have already
been disposed of to actual settlers, and
there are to be seen 100 acres, planted
in good-size groves.
Mr. Watson, by careful manage-
ment, has induced Iquite a number of
his fellow countrymen to this place,
and they are doing wonders for this
section of the country. Besides care-
ful management, Mr. Watson is pos-
sessed of a progressive mind and is
alive to all measures of public import-
ance. He will make Runnymeade a
typical Florida town, and should he
have success, there can be no question
but what Ruunymeade will obtain an
importance second to none on the
South Florida Railroad. The lands
are rich, the drainage good, and with-
all the prospective settlers could do
no better than take- a glance at this
place, which is destined to become a
giant forest, where the hnm of trade
and traffic will soon drown the mur-

be grown -'here at but very little cost
and with considerable profit..
Through the courtesy of Messrs.
Avery 4 Brow.n, the live, wide-awake
and progressive agents of this place,
your correspondent was informed that
applications every day were pouring
in from Virginia, New York and New.
Jersey for available farming lands for
'small vegetables'. ,
There seems to be no doubt but ini
the near future this place will be one
of the objective points for a large sup-
el. of vegetables to Not.rhern mark--
eTs. Messrs. Avery & Brown have in
there possession some of the best truck-
farming lands in the State, situated
within a le of the town, and parties
will do well to write to them for infor-
mation regarding the purchase of these
rich. alluvial and desirable lands.
The eager desire of the truckers of
Middle States to investigate our Flori-
da truck-ftrming lands show that they
have an eye to this constantly-growing -
industry in our midst, and it has been
pretty generally predicted that in the
course of a few more years nearly

What Bill Nye Knows About Farfim-
rDuring the past season, writes Bill
Nye to the Nort/i- ,t--i.rn Mi//i r, I
was considerablyy interested in agri-
culture. I met with some success, but
not enough -to madden me with joy.
It ifakes a good deal of success to un-
screw my reason and make it totter on
S its throne. I've had' trouble with my
liver, and various other abnormal con--
editions of the vital organs, but Reason
S 'sits on her throne, as the case may be,
through it all.
Agriculture has a charm about it
which I cannot adequately describe.
S Every product of the farm is furnished
Sby nature with something that loves
it, so that it will never be neglected.
The graincrop is loved by the weevil,
the Hessian .flyaud the chinch-bug:
the watermelon, the squash and the
cucumber are loved by the squash-bug;
; the potato is loved by the potato-bug;
the sweet curn is loved by the ant,
thou -luggard the tomato is loved by
the cut-worm; the pluni is loved.l by
the curculio, and so forth, and so
forth, so that no plant that grows need
be a wall-flower. (Early-blooming
and extremely dwarf joke for the
table. Plant as soon as there is no
danger of frosts in drills four inches
apart. When ripe pull it and eat
raw with vinegar. The red ants may
be added to taste.)
Well, I began early to spade up
_my angle-worms and other pets to see
if they had withstood the severe win-
ter. I found they had. They were
unusually _bright- and cheerful. The
potato-bugs were a little sluggish at
first, but as the spring opened and the
ground warmed up they pitched right
in and did first-rate. Every one of
my bugs in May did splendidly. I
was most worried about my cut-worms.
Away, along in 'April I had not seen a
cut-worm, and, I began to' fear they
had suffered and perhaps perished 'in
the extreme cold of the previous win-
SOne morning late in the month,
however, I saw a cut-worm come bout
from behind a cabbage stump and take
off his ear-muff. He- was a little stiff
in the joints, but he had not lost hope.
I saw at once that now was the time to
assist him if I had a park of human-
ity left. I searched every 'work o:n
ag-rinulture to inul ott what it. was
that- farmers fed the r bfinmed cut-
worms on, but all scientists seemed to,
be silent. I read the agricultural re:
ports, the dictionary and the cyclo'if--
dia, but they didn't throw any light
on the subject. I got wild. I feared
that I had brought but one cut-worm
through the winter, and' I was" liable
to lose him unless I could find out
what to feed him. I asked some of
my neighbors, but they spoke jeering.
ly and sarcastically. I know now how
it was. All their cut-worms had ft'rozen
down last. winter, and they couldn't
bear to see, me get ahead. .
All at once an idea struck 'me. I
haven't recovered'frdm the concussion
yet. It was this: The worm had win-
tered under a cabbage stalk; no doubt
be was tbud of the beverage. I acted
upon thief thought and bought him two
dozen red cabbage plants; at 50 cents
a dozen. I had hit it the first pop.
He was pansionately fond of these
plants, .and would eat three in- one
night. He also had several matinees
and saurkraut lawn festivals for his
friends; antd in a week I bought three
dozen more cabbage plants. *By this
time I had collected a large group of
common scrub cut-wbrrus, early Swed-
ish cut-worms,, dwarf Hubbard cut-
wornu, and shorthorn cut-worme, all
doing well, but. still, I thought, a little
hidebound and bilious. They acted But there are those wvho, knowing

The Lake Weir Country.
Editors Florida Dispatch :
The next point of interest, taken in
rotation around the shore of South
Lake Weir, after leaving the one al-
luded to in article first, was the farm
of Dr. D. S. Chase; but as it is pro-
posed at no distant date 'to describe
this entirely by itself, and much more
fully than can be done at present in
the "Fertile Florida Farm" series, the
abundant material at command will
be reserved for that purpose, and the
subject passed over with but brief
mention-merely pausing to say that
the energy, skill and industry of Dr.
Chase has made his farm a model one,
and well known throughout and far
beyond Marion county.
N6t far distant is the farm and
grove of Dr. N. D. Francis. 'Here, at
the time of our visit, was in bloom a
large and choice variety of ioses, while
his young orange grove gives indica-
tions.of being'a very thrifty one.
Just across the'way resides Mrs. B.
B. Ricker, postmistress of South Lake
Weir post-office. She is as thoroughly
a. u fail in orange culture as those of
the masculine gender whose groves
__.are all around her place, and she is as
good at "farm talk" as the best of
them. She came in 1877, and now
.has'-,a well-developed grove of- 600.
trees, 'and has charge of 1,000. trees
for other parties. There are pears,
plums, peaches, grapes, &c., in abun-
dance on her premises.
Next in order, and back somewhat
-from the lake, is the 100-acre grove
of the "Lake Weir Orange Grove
Co.," which was formed by Mr. E. B.
Foster, from Westerly, R. I., in 1881,1
Mr. 'F. having commenced with a
20-acre grove, in 1877. There are
7,500 orange and 2,500 lemon trees,-
each set twenty.feet, six inches apart,
which gives seventy trees to the acre.
The nursery covers twenty-five acres.
Close by the 'Lakeside Hotel, and
on the shore of the lake, M. E. Gillett
has a fine residence and a nursery of
90,000 trees. His orange-trees have
grown three feet in one year, with
stock from five-eighths to three-
fourths of an inch thick. But the fea-
ture of his agricultural efforts specially
interesting, is the successful growth of
the pine-apple. He has 500 growing
plants, 200 of them having borne,. as
is customary, one apple apiece for
the past four years. The largest one
yet obtained" weighed seven and a: half
pounds, the general average being-
"five. They are of the Sugar-Loaf and
^.T.T TToT. T~ .T 9..^T. t. v. .TTVIT. TT.TTTT
Red Spanish varieties, with but little
or no tough, stringy fibre running
through them, which is rarely the
case. These plants are set twenty
inches apart each way, and from the
beginning of December to the last of
March are protected by a wooden
frame-work about four feet high, and
covered with slats or boards rather
closely set, and covered with an abun-
dance of dead grass, leaves, etc. The
sides are left open. They have never
yet been affected by frost, and he.con-
siders them very easy to raise, bearing
fruit all through the year, but reach-
ing ,their prime in July and August.
He has not disposed of any in the
markets, but the entire'product is used
by his family. They are set out close
together, as indicated by the distance
of twenty inches, that they may sup-
port each other and not topple over,
thus exposing the apple to injury by
-the rays of the sun falling upon their
sides. Growers will bear in mind that
chickens are great enemies to the pine-
apple. The experiment has here been
, On the premises of R. E. McMahan
is a fine young grove\of 325 trees and
1600 in nursery. A rose geranium
seven years old, growing luxuriantly
in the yard, it was noted with surprise,
had never yet beem potted. The frost
had granted it a- bill of entire exemp-
tion.' Near by was an orange-tree, one
and one-half inch; stalk, that had
grown six and one-half feet in one
year. When that can be beaten let
us know it. Orange honey! Do you
believe it? Mrs. McMahan says so,
which leaves no room for doubt,, to
which we add the weight of our testi-
mony. The honey made from the
orange blossom, and that derived from
other flowers being set on the table
side by side, presented a marked con-
trast, the former being much lighter
in color and much sweeter to .the taste
than the latter.' The circumstances
of the case were such as to force the
conviction that this was genuine or-
ange honey, the production of which
is a matter of skepticism to many.
In the South Lake Weir region and
ini the immediate vicinity of the farm
of Dr. Chase, Mrs. Nicholson has a
new six-acre grove, H. L. Cilley of
Boston, twenty acres; B. D. Ricker,
six acres; J. L. Clapp 'of New Hamp-
shire, five acres; N. J. Ricker, four
acres; Dr. N. D. Faunice, ten acres; E.
P. Egan, five acres; Smith Brothers, .
fifteen acres; 0. K. Bucklin of New
Hampshire, ten acres, and the 1QO-
acre grove of the Lake Weir Co.
There are in addition to these, dozens
if not hundreds of groves around this
side of the lake, as well as at Stan-
ton and Eastlake, that the writer had
Ino time to visit.; hence mention of
them is omitted. "

grove is that of T. M. Shackelford, the
author of an able book on Lake Weir
Next in order, his brother, Wm. H
Shackelford, who is just preparing to
set out a new grove. Then the well-
shaded grounds of Dr. R. Thomson,
a bluff twenty feet or more above the
lake, from which point, probably, the
finest view of it in its entire circuit is
to be obtained.
On the place of Captain J. L. Car-
ney, the first orange-grower on; Lake
Weir, and who settled in 1874, -are
some curious vegetable productions
that cannot,be passed' over in silence
-for instance, he has.atrue Tangierine
orange-tree-such exclusively as found
in China,-and Captain Carney- be-
lieves that it is the only pure speci-
men in Florida, unless, indeed, from"
cuttings from the tree. There. is not
the slightest acrid taste whatever about
them; and they readily command from
$8to $9 'per box. The tree is nine
years old and from "the .seed.- The
Mandarin and Tangierine are natives
of China, whence he obtained the seed
from which the tree was grown; and
which, onaccount of its numerous
"cuttings," has but verylittle peace
But still more odd and remarkable
than this Tangierine, he has an orange-
tree budded with just one dozen differ-
ent varieties ofthe citrus family. It
bears four kinds of lemons, one each

three of oranges, and finally two of
citron,and bears them all abundantly.
Now if any one can rake up a vege-
table curiosity surpassing that, let
him hold up his right -hand.! We'll
wager the Captain will take the pre-
mium every-time. The writer saw the
tree and saw the fruit,-if, is no fable.
The greater part of Cartain Carney's
fine orange-grove, from wild stock
found growing on the islands of the
lake and along the shore hammocks,
was transplanted and budded. It is
his experience that oranges of any
variety steadily if but slowly improve
by cultivation, and that entirely neg-T
elected they show an unmistakable
tendency to revert to their original
condition. As the correctness of this
conclusion may be questioned in some
quarters, 'it may he queried before
passing on,-Can any one offer prac-
tical experience in the matter?
The climate around the shores of
Lake Weir being far more exempt
from frost than adjoining localities,
and heice much more favorable to the
culture of the orange-tree, there is no

suspension of its growth during the
winter, that development being won-,.
derfully rapid at all seasons.
.On one occasirion, he budded a lernon
"slip", on a sour orange stump, and
the- tree .now contains, two years
after budding, or did when seen, fully
two boxes of lemons, and as many
more had been sold from it. This tree
budded on' a four and one-half inch
wild stump is twenty feet high, with
branches titteen feet in diameter. An
orange-tree .from sour stump only one
year old :produced a large number of
oranges. .- "
Capt. Carney says that orangess
planted ft:rnm the sedd are iot always
true, and are inclined to ."sport .';".
but J. A. Harris and A. L. Eichel-
berger say they are always true to the .
seed. When agricultural scientists
cannot agree among themselves, w hat
are the rest of us to believe? Now,
let us hear somebody on that point.
As to orange culture, it is the ex-
perience of Mr. Alfred Ayer, that cow-
peas, as a fertilizer, should be planted
in orange-groves, and that, when of .
rank growth, may be turned under
.to advantage, unless, meantime, there
occur a season of drouth, when they -
should be cut away at once to prevent -
them from absorbing too much moist-
ure from the soil. Is that sound doc-
trine? It looks so.
It is claimed that, on the premises
of L. W. Eagleton, on Lake- Weir, is
the largest lemon-grove in the State.
If this is not correct, then let the truth
be told. It shall be deemed a fact un-
til there is conclusive testimony to the
contrary. This grove covers seventy- "
five acres, and realizes over $800 per
acre. The trees are seven years old
from the bud, and the original wild
growth at the time of transplanting .'
arid budding, was probably four years J,
old. That is a record hard to beat.
Mr. E. G. Hood has a .fine, well-
shaded residence, commanding an ex-
ceedingly fine view of the lake; but -
we must bring-these random notes to
a conclusion, as they have already ex-.,.
ceeded the space they should occupy ,-
A few words only in regard to the lake.
and we aredone:
Lake Weir is said "to be 320.fee4 .
above the sea level, .280 feet above
Palatka and 224 feet above Ocala. It:
is a wondrous natural reservoir of pure;
spring-water, with its sparkling waves,
its crystalline depths and its lovely
beeches of hard, white sand, fromN the
margin of which rise the forest-crowned
hills, and back of them, higher still,-

Filaree-A New Forage Plant. The
Scale Insect in California, etc.
Los ANGELES, CAL., April, 1885.
Editor the Florida Dispatch-:
SI have written, several hasty notes
to your Mr. Redmond, advising him
of plants and seeds of Mexico and
California sent. to him by mail; they
were all new to me, and, I thought,
might be worth introduction to Flor-
ida, though some of them may be there
or may have been tried. I hive just,
come, across another plant called
the Filaree,:which seems to have merit
as a pasture and, perhaps, hay plant.
I found in the March Rural Cdli-
: .formnian a pretty full description of it,
and sent you a copy. It grows in old
fields and by the road-sides. It, has a
tap-root, and the tops of'strong plants
cover a circle of eighteen inches diam--
eter, and rise about as high. The shoots
have'successive clusters of small pink
flowers, each. flower producing five
small-but nutritious seeds, a few of
which are herewith. enclosed; they
S, may germinate, though picked a little
green. I shall, later, collect 'a -'uan-
tity, sufficient to give it a fair trial in
Florida, and send it a month hence.
Every one to whom I have spoken of
it say that cattle, horses and sheep are
. very fond of it, green or dry, and fully
confirm all that is said about it in the
Arizono (iti:en. Itf it does so well in
the desert during the rainy season, it
ought to hive a long period of growth
in Florida, reaching, perhaps, through
In the Rural Calijornian you.' will
find an illustrated, description of the
scale-insects of this State, and get some
idea oT the cottony-cushion scale,
S. which, fortunately, has not yet. got
dangerously diffused, but which threat-
ens to be the most destructive, and
rapidly multiplying (average 500 to 1)
pest yet known here. .The necessity
of united, determined and universal
action against this and' other scale-in-
sects is so great, that the Legislature
recently passed a most, stringent law
to compel, by -severe- penalties, all
. orchardists to disinfect (such is the
term used, though disinfest would
seem more proper) all their'trees, and
providing for the appointment 'of in-
spectors in every town,'whose duty is to
-examine all places complained.of,send
warning notices, and prosecute de-
The danger is so great, especially neither spend money or trouble in the
from the cottony-scale, that Professor
Mathew Cooke, the distinguished ento-
mologist of this State, gave the public,
through a reporter of the Times, this
most emphatic warning; he said: 'I
find the pest spreading. It is gaining
a firm foothold, and there appears to
be no attempt to check it." To the
question, "What will be the result if
nothing is done to eradicate the scale?"
he said: I -
"Well, you may say that the orange-
groves will be worth the price of the
land, after deducting, the cost of dig-
ging up and burning the trees." Prof.
Cooke gives the following heroic and
expensive treatment: "On premises
seriously infested, after the crop is
taken off, the foliage of the trees should
be washed with salt brine, strong
enough to float an egg in. A pound
of lye may be added to every'five gal-
lons of the brine. The wash must hbe
repeated in two weeks. The trees'will
be denuded of foliage, and immediately
should be sprayed with another solu-
tion. This should consist of whale-oil
soap, one pound to every gallon-and-
a-half of water, with a gallon of 'coal-
oil added to every sixteen gallons..
The coal-oil may be made to mix with
the %water by the following process :In-
one gallon of water boil one-half of a
pound of brown or' other soap until
dissolved; into this pour two gallons
of coal-oil 'and pump the mixture
through for ten minutes : this willform"
an emulsion which will mix fully with
water. Of this emulsion add one and
one-half gallons to every sixteen 'gal-
lons of the whale-oil soap and water
mentioned before. Apply to the trees
with a spraying pump. A rough es-
timate gives a total cost for each tree
of about eighty cents. On an average
for an eight-year-old tree five gallon
will be required.
"'The orange-grower should be con-
stantly on the alert. He should in-
spect his orchards every few weeks,
and on the first, appearance of tie pest
take immediate action. On a tree nut
badly infested, the "coal-oil and soap
mixture may be used and the brine
dispensed with. I will add that w hale-,
oil soap made from' any kind of grease
I attended a meeting of the fruit-
growers, of Southern California, at
which the magnitude of the evil, the
obstacles and the proper treatment
.were fully discussed. I assure you it
was rather a solemn meeting, few jokes
enlivened the occasion arid all seemed
deeply impressed with the: threatened
danger. One discouraging aspect
named, is the ignorance and apathyof
many who had but small interest at
stake, and spectators who were mak-
ing groves for sale. Thesemen would
general c-ruLade necessary to stamp
out the evil, aiid a few such people
scattered through a community,, by
their petty negligence, can neutralize
the laborious efforts of the many. For-
tunately the law has just come in time
and all such will be compelled to do
their duty. Fortunately, also, there
is'a cheering asSurance of success in
combatting the scale.
In and around this city the black scale
prevails. They are about an eigth of an
inch long, and thickly stud the young
wood; they do not cling so tenaciously,
nor do I think they are as destructive,
as your long scale. In the largest and
oldest grove here they have been al-
lowed to multiply to such an extent
that every twig appears to be covered
with them. Another great enemy,
pervading almost every orange-tree
here, is a black, fungus smut, that
covers the bark, leaves and fruit, form-
with the dust, a thick coat. The fruit
is thus made'r'epulsive, and has to be
brushed or washed off. Some attribute
the smut to fogs; but that cannot be,
because the doctors and real-estate
,agents claim wonderful dryness as the
prevailing, atmospheric condition.
Whatever be the cause, it is a great.
The orange-ftrees here do not appear
to be as strong and vigorous as those
of Florida, nor to have equal power of
withstanding adverse influences. A
healthy, well-nourished, bearing- tree
in Florida is seldom troubled with
scale ; here, large trees are doubly in-
fested. Here, I think, the orange-
trees are all set too deep-that is, a
portion of their trunks are under-
ground. In Florida, an orange-tree
set in that way droops, grows but
slowly and becomes a prey to scale;
such'is my experience. The reason
seemsplain-nature designed the trunk
exclusively for the air, and, if a section
of it. is constantly surrounded by wet
earth, the part sickens and cannot.
properly perform its functions of pass-
ing the sap up and down. Hence, the
roots and top suffer.
The soil here is mostly adobe-that
is, a tough clay, that dries like rock.
The roads and 'streets are solid, smooth
and very nice to rile on, but very dusty.
This clay was formerly the only build-
ing material used. It was moulded
into large bricks, dried in- the sun and
laid up with mortar of the same. Many
adobe houses and garden-walls of the
Spanish times still stand in perfect
condition. The city offices and jail
are in'a long, one-stoiry adobe build-
ing, and one of the wealthy families
occupy one that must be of great age.
Such is the general character of the
soil. It must'be very fertile, because
the farmers will not haul stable-man-
ure from this city, though it costs
them nothing for the manure.
The valley or plain of the Lo:-s An-
geles river contains,about hall a mil-
lion acres, and- is sheltered on the
north and east by the rocky Sierra
Madre motherr meuntairis), 4,000 to
8,000 feet high, and is open to the Pa-
cific on the south an d west. The land
begins to be available for cultivation
at the foot of the mountains, 1,2.00 to
1,400 feet high. Beautiful Pasadena
--crown of the valley-is four or five
miles south, 1,000 feet high, and the
city of Los Angeles is six miles further
south, and 300 to 4(00 feet, high. Here
the valley widens out add extends -to
the ocean, seventeen to tuwerty-five -
miles distant. In- and around this
city are million of, grape-vines, or--
ange, lemon, apricot; peach, pear, al-
nmond, fig and walnut. trees. Beyond,
the plain is covered with wheat, barley'
and althfalfit, while thousands of horses,
cattle and sheep enjoy the rich past-
ures. All this"wealth of products is
due to irrigation, and the plain is ,
wonderfully adapted, .by its 'gentle
slope in one direction, for carrying
water. The watet is taken from the
river at various point;- to canals, then
systematically divided and distributed
over many thousands of acres. This
city has very many beautiful resi-
dences,and the whole population seem
permeated with a love of flowers and
evergreens. The gardens are carefully
kept and af-e watered from the city
aqueducts. Altogether, Los Angeles
is an attractive,-healthy and economi-
cal place for residence. It is growing
rapidly and has 25,000 or more in-

ter, on the climate and fruits of Cali-
fornia, as compared with Florida.

Eggs for Hatching $1.00 per doz.
A few extra Male Birds'$1.50 each.
Imperial White Pekin Ducks, $7.50 per pair;
S.Eggs $1.50 per dozen.
Booted White Cuban Carrier Pigeons $1 pair.
A very careful selection of the best birds of
each variety are reserved for the production
of eggs for incubation; Each strain is re-
stricted to separate subdivisions of a twenty
acre orange grove enclosed by wire netting,
effectually preventing admixture of breeds;
while through each enclosure runs a brook
fed by unfailing springs of pure water, in-
ducing a perpetual supply of green grass and
insuring health and vigor to the fowls.

HOMES IN FLORIDR Boston and Savannah Steamship Co.
Are you coming to seek a Winter Home
amid the healthful hills of South Florida,
where the Orange attains its greatest excel-
lence; where the bright sunshine warms in
winter, and where even in summer the cool
breezes from Ocean to Gulfalternately blow?
If so, seek the healthful hills of Hernando
County beside the new Railroads now actu-
ally building. In a word,
GO TO ORIOLE..
At Oriole you will find a vigorous begin-
ning already made. Groves are being started,
land cleared, houses built, streets laid out,
avenues cut for miles through the open pine
woods. Everything shows that push and en-
ergy are the watch-words in this new place.
Oriole is intended to be a succession of Or-
ange Groves, where settlers can find good
homes among good neighbors and where
non-residents can have groves made for them
by persons who are directly interested in tht
prosperity of iht- pi.,,-. A 'lozen earo'.es fo,
non-residents a.- 'lieadvy begud.
The soil is dark gray, with yellow sandI,
sub-soil, underlaid with clay-no hayd pan.
Some of the finest groves in, Florida are on
similar ground. The dark; rich foliage of the
trees already growing- show their health-
time and attention will do the rest in devel-
oping them into beautiful well 'paying
