aczces.sions to :he appurtenances and

labor, time and expuase. The poli-

not permit the affairs of government

this advice applicable to those who

CHAPTER 1.
The sun was just g,,iug down, a his-
ing glole of fire aud torment. Alr-eady
the lower limb w.s in contact with the
jagge-,1 I.,i'.on'- of tihe moin'i.utain chain
that riuinned the d:Ls'.-r \viilt' pupile
and gold. Out on the barren, hard
l.-ak-,_d flat in frout of the corral, just
where it h:tdl lUen unhitche.d wh]-n the
paymaster and his safe were dumped
socn after dawn, a weatherbeaten am-
bulance was throwing unbroken a mile
long shadow toward the distant Chris-
tobal. The gateway to the east through
the Santa Maria, sharply notthed in the
gleaming range, stood a day's march
away-a day's march now only made
by night, for this was Arizona, and
from the rising of the sun to the going
down of the same anywhere south of
that curdling mud bath, the Gila, the
only human beings impervious to the
fierceness of its rays were the Apaches.
"And they," growled the paymaster
as he petulantly snapped the lock of
his little safe, "they're no more human
than so many hyenas."
A big man physically was the cus-
todian and disburser of government
greenbacks-so big that, as he stepped
forth through the aperture in the hot
adobe wall, he ducked Iis head to
avert unwilling contact with its upper I
edge. Green glass goggles, a broad
brimmed straw hat, a pongee shirt,
loose trousers of brown linen and dust-
colored canvas shoes made up the outer
man of a personality as distinctly un-
military as it was ponderous. Slow and
labored in movement, the major was
correspondingly sluggish~ in speech.
He sauntered out ireto the glare of the
evening sunshine and became slowly
conscious of a desire to swear at what
he saw; that, though in a minute or two
the day god would "douse his glim"
behind the black horizon, no prepara-
tion whatever had been made for a
start. There stood the ambulance, ev-
ery bolt and link and tire hot as a stove-
lid, but not a mule in sight.
Turning to his left, he strolled along
toward a gap in the adobe wall and
entered the dusty interior of the corral.
*. of the four qun: ;.i i-pe1ds drowsing
under the brush shelter la;i'iuidlyl ti n-i._d
an inquiring eye and interrogative ear
in his direction and conveyed, after
the manner of the mule, a suggestion
as to supper. A Mexican boy, sprawl-
ing in the shade of a bale of govern-
ment hay and clad in cotton shirt and
trousers well nigh as brown as the skin
that peeped through occasional gaps,
glanced up at him with languid inter-
est an instant, and then resumed the
more agreeable contemplation of the
writhings of an impaled tarantula.
Under another section of the shed two
placid little burros were dreamily
blinking at vacancy,their grizzled fronts
expressive of that ineffable peace found
only in the faces of saints and donkeys.
In the middle of the inclosure a rude
windlass coiled with rope stood stretch-
ing forth a decrepid lever arm. The
whippletree, dangling from the end
over the beaten circular track, seemed
cracked with heat and age. The stout
rope that stretched tautly from the coil
passed over a wooden wheel and dis-
appeared through a broad framed aper-
ture into the bowels of the earth.
Close at hand in the shade of a brush
covered "leanto" hung three or four
huge ollas, earthen water jars, swathed
in gunnysack and blanket. Beyond
them, warped out of all possibility of
future usefulness, stood what had once
been the running gear of a California
buckboard. Behind it dangled from
dusty pegs portions of leather harness,
which all the neatsfoot oil of the mil-
itary pharmacopoeia could never again
restore to softness or pliability. A
newer edition of the same class of ve-
hicle was covered by a canvas" paulin."'
A huge stack of barley bags was piled
at the far end of the corral, guarded
from depredation quadrupedall) by a
barrier of wooden slats, mostly down,
and by a tattered biped, very sound
asleep.
"'Where's the sergeant?" queried the
paymaster slowly, addressing no one
in particular, but looking plaintively
around him.
Still leaning a brown chin on a near-
ly black hand, and stirring up his
spider with the forked stick he held
in the other paw, the boy simply tilted
his head toward the dark opening un-
der the farther end of the shed, an
aperture that seemed to lead to noth-
ing but blackness beyond.
"What's he doing?"
"No sa-a-abe," drawled the boy,
never lifting his handsome eyes from
the joys before him.
"Why hasn't he harnessed up?"
A shrug of the shoulders was the only
reply.
"Hey?"
"No sa-a-abe," slowly as before.

Slow.'" Uftler" thed hua y blouci hat a
round, sunblistertd, freckled face, bris-
tling %with a wt-ek old beard,pev-r d forth
at the staff official with an expri-.;ion
half of languid tolerance, half of mild
irritation. In most perfunctory fash-
ion the soldier just touched the hat rim
with his forefinger, then dropped the
hand into a convenient pocket. It was
plain that he felt but faint respect for
the staff rank and station of the man
in goggles and authority.
"Sergeant Feeny, I thought I told
you I wanted everything ready to start
at sunset."
"You did, sir, and then you undid
it," was the prompt and sturdy reply.
The paymaster stood irresolute.
Through the shading spectacles of green
his eyes seemed devoid of any expres-
sion. His attitude remained un-
changed, thumbs in the low cut pockets
of his wide flapping trousers, shoulders
meek and drooping.
"W-e-ll," he finally drawled, "you
understood I wanted to get on to Camp
Stoneman by sunrise, didn't you?
Didn't my clerk, Mr. Dawes, tell you?"
"He did, yes, sir, and you don't want
to get there no more than I do, major.
But I told you flatfooted if you let Don-
ovan and those other men go back on
the trail they'd find some excuse to stop
at Ceralvo's, and, d- n 'em, they've
done it."
"Don't you s'pose they'll be along
presently ?'
"S'pose?" and the sun blistered face
of the cavalryman seemed to grow a
shade redder as he echoed almost con-
temptuously the word of his superior.
"S'pose? Why, major, look here"
And the short, swart trooper took three
quick strides, then pointed through the
western gap in the adobe wall to the
gilded edge of the range where the sun
had just slipped from view. "It's 10
mile to that -ridge, it's 10 minutes
since I got the last wigwag of the sig-
nal flag at the p-ss. They hadn't come
through then. *'hat chance is there of
their getting here in time to light out
at dark? You did tell me to have ev-
erything ready to start, and then you
undid it by sending half the escort
back. You've been here in hell's half
acre three days, and I've been here
three years. You have never been
through Canyon Diablo; I have been
through a dozen timc:s :-nd never yet
without a fight or a mighty good
chance of one. Now, you may think
it's fun to run your head into an am-
buscade, but I don't. Yno can get 'em
too easy without trying here. I'm an
old soldier, major, and too free spoken
perhaps, but I mean no disrespect, only
I wish to God you'd listen to me next
time."
"You wouldn't have had me leave
those women in the lurch back at the
crossing, would you?" queried the pay-
master half apologetically.
"Why, I don't believe that story at
all," flatly answered Feeny; "it's some
d---d plant that fellow Donovan's
springing on you-a mere excuse to
ride back so they could drink and


tion of nitrogen anRd exygen, former-
ly called the dephlogisticated nitrous
gas. Under ordinary conditions of
temperature and pressure this sub-
stance is gaseous; it has a sweet taste
and a fain, agreeable odor. Wheu
inhaled, it produces unconssciousnesd
and insensibility to pain, henee it is
used ss an anaesthetic during short.
surgical operations. When it is
breathed diluted with air, an exhilxi
rating or intoxicating effect is pro'
duced, under the influence of which
the inhaler is irresistibly impelled to
do all kinds of silly and extravagant
acts; hence the old name of laughing
gas. The circumstances under which
nitrous oxide should be applied as an
ansstlhtic must always be determin-
ed, just as with any other anaesthatic
by medical authority.
One of the curious things about
the Gulf Streatn is that no whalestt
are found in it.

night, sir, yon and Mr. Dawes, while
I rode alongside with finger on triggei
every minute."
Absorbed in their gloomy conversa-
ti n, ewititbxmn nocn atC e thAat'he wood-
en shutter in the adobe wall close at
hand had been noiselessly opened fromd
within, just an inch or two. .Neithei
knew, neither could see that behind it, hi
the gathering darkness of the short sum-
mer evening, a shadowy form was
crouching.
"Then you think we must stay hero;
do you?" queried the paymaster.
"Think? I know it. Why, therange
ahead is alive with Apaches, and we
can't stand 'em off with only half a
dozen men. Your clerk's no. 'count,
major."
Old Plummer stood irresolute. Hid
clerk, a consumptive and broken down
relative, was at that moment lying
nerveless on a rude bunk within the
ranch, bemoaning the fate that had im-
pelled him to seek Arizona in search of
health. He was indeed of little
"'count," as the paymaster well knew.
After a moment's painful thought the
words rose slowly to his lips:
"Well, perhaps you know best, Oe
here we stay till tomorrow night, or at
least until they get back."
One could almost hear the whispet
in the deep recess of the retaining wall
-sibilant, gasping. Some one crouch-
ing still farther back in the black
depths of the interior did huar.
"Santa Maria I"
But when a moment later the propi-.
etor of this roadside ranch, this artfi
facial oasis in a land of desolation
strolled into the big bare room where
half a dozen troopers were dozing or
gambling it was with an air of confi-
dential joviality that he whispered td
the corporal in charge:
"Our fren, the major, he riffuse md
sell you aguardiente-mescal, but wait
-tonight."
"Oh, d-n it, Moreno, we'll to half
way to Stoneman by that time," in-
terrupted the trooper quite savagely.
"Who's to know where we got thd
stuff ? We'll make 'ema believe Donor
van's squad brought it in from Cer-
alvo's. Give inc a drink now anyhow,
you infernal greaser; I'm all burnt out
with such a day as this. We've got to
start the moment they get back, and
there won't be any time then."
"Hush, caballero; they come not to.

"Why, how in blazes do you know?
"Softly -I know not. I knoW
noting; yet, mira l-I know. They tali
long in the corral-the major and that
pig of a sergeant-for him 1 snap my
finger. Look youl" And Morenso
gave a flip indicative of combined de-
fiance and disdain.
"Don't you count on his not finding
out, Moreno. It's all easy enough so
far as the major's concerned, but that
blackguard Feeny's different, I tell
you. He'd hear the gurgle of the
spigot if he were 10 miles across the
Gila, and be here to bust things before
you could serve out a gill-d-n
him He's been keen enough to put
that psalm singing Yankee on guard
over your liquor. How are you going
to get at it anyhow?"
For an answer the Mexican placed
the forefinger of his left hand upon his
lips and with that of the right hand
pointed significantly to the hard beaten
earthen floor.
"Ah, I have a mine," he whispered.
"You will not betray, eh? Shu-ul
Hush! He comes now.''
The gruff voice of Sergeant Feeny
broke up the colloquy.
"Corporal Murphy, take what men
you have here and groom at once. Feed
and water too. Moreno, I want sup-
per cooked for eight in 80 minute~g
Drop those cards now, you men. Yoi~

gamble with those thugs at Ceralvo's.
They've just been paid off and had no
chance for any fun at all before they
were ordered out on this escort duty.
That money's been burning in their
pockets now for three whole nights,
and they just can't stand it so long as a
drop of liquor's to be had by hard rid-
ing. No soldier is happy till he's dead
broke, major-leastwise none I ever
see."
"What makes you doubt the story,
sergeant? It came straight enough."
"It came too d- d straight, sir;
that's just the trouble. It came straight
from Chihuahua Pete's monte mill.
It's only a hook to draw 'em back, and
they played it on you because they saw
you were new to the country, and they
knew I was asleep; and now, unless
Lieutenant Drummond should happen
in with his troop, there's no help for
it but to wait for tomorrow night and
no certainty of getting away then;"
"Well, if Mr. Drummond were here,
don't you suppose he'd have gone or
sent back to protect those people?"
"Oh, he'd have gone-certainly-
that's his business, but it isn't yours,

-The St. Andrews Bay IHorticul-

elected as officers for the ensuing year:
Win. A. Emmons, president; W. R. Madi-
son, vice president; R. E. Howard, secre-
tary; Jas. Wise., treasurer, and W. R.
Madison, overseer of improvements. This
association, organized for the purpose of
developing and improving the 3t. An-
drews Bay country and fostering and pro-
moting horticultural interest generally,
presents a most satisfactory showing. it
has recently sold to and is improving for
a lady in Vineland, N. J., a beautifully
situated five acre tract on Watson Bayou
and is now planting the tract in Niagara
grapes under the supervision of the over-
seer, and negotiations for improvements
are pending with several other parties.
The association is not in a situation to
dispense charity; but it can furnish any
number of chean comfortable homes to
industrious persons who can command
sufficient menns to tide themselves over
for a year or two, at the end of which
time they may become self-supporting and
independent citizens in a land where the
biting blasts of winter are unknown, and
where the rays of the summer sun are
-ounteracted by the cooling breezes from
the Gulf, making tlih climate almost one
continuous season of spring time and au-
tumn. The advisability of holding a pub-
lic meeting in St. Andrews for the dis-
cussion of horticultural topics is being
considered.

Following this a sore came on her right side be-

other broke on the left side. She would take
spells of sore mouth and when we had succeed-
ed in overcoming this she would suffer with at-
tacks of high fever and expel bloody looking
corruption. Her head was affected and matter
oozed-from her ears. After each attack she be-

At Athens, in Florida, a tree produced
9,000 oranges; at least 8,564 were gath-
ered packed and shipped from that
one tree. We suppose each of these
oranges would have weighed half a
pound, so that there must have been
4,000 pounds weight for the tree to bear.
When we remember that the greater
portion of the weight of an orange is
water, it seems wonderful where this
liquid can be obtained, as the ground is
generally comparatively dry where the
orange tree grows. In bearing, the
branches by the enormous weight are
borne down considerably, but it is said
that after the oranges are gathered, they
easily erect themselves again.-Mehan's

Mr. R. C. Langford informs us that he

can be raised with the greatest of ease
in Polk County, and there is no earthly
reason why a single pound of bacon
should be imported. Yet there are
dozens of farmers around Fort Meade
who buy all their meat and lard, paying
rom 12 to 15 cents per pound for it.
These same farmers will stand around

peas, rot on the ground, and plow them

w th sweet potatoes, cassava or the South-
ern red cob corn.
BRowN-Red cob corn? Is that some-
thing new too?
SMITH-Yes, like the wonderful pea
and Southern rye we have finally got a
corn that is adapted to the south. Jones
had ten acres in this new variety-the
seed was raised in Putnam county this
State, and when it was not over two feet
high the drouth came on andit remained
green, but did not grow an inch in two
months. But when the rains did come
that corn came too, and made a good crop
while the drouth entirely destroyed all
other kinds.
BRowN-Then it seemswe have a corn
that is reasonably sure to make a crop,
and a more than substitute for clover in
the new pea, as it makes both hay and
grain, and also stands the drouth, and
we all know what the sweet potato will
do. With these three essentials of truck
raising and hog and chicken food, as
well as for the table, it would seem that
it was easier making a living, here in the
land of roses and oranges, by general
farming, than north of the Ohio River.
SMITH-It looks so to me. I somehow
realize that the dawn of another eman-

BROWN-I wish your hopeful views
could be entertained by every land holder
in Florida. And I wish too, your san-
quine spirit could be revealed to the
thousands of farmers in the Northern
States and Canada whose physical con-
dition could be improved, yes and ma-
terial condition, too, by settling on those
pine lands. Overcoming the impression
that general farming is not practicable
in the South is slow work. But I will

Farm Talks.
From The Florida Agriculturist:
JoNEs.-I see you are piling up a fine
lotof: stable manure in your orange
grove. Are you not afraid it will leat
and become worthless ?
SMITH.-I look out for that. Do you
not see that I compost with each load of
stable manure an equal quantity of
muck ? The manure acts favorably on
the muck,making available its ammonia;
at the same time the muck keeps the
stable manure from "fire ranging," I
believe that's the term, and the combi-
nation willbe in excellent condition to
be spread broadcast and plowed in by
spring.
JONEs.-But do not agricultural and
horticultural scientists tell us there is
absolutely no plant food in muck ?
SMITH.-Some of them do, and again
some of them do not. I sent two speci-
mens, one taken from the glade and the
other scooped out of the bottom of a
pond on my place and the analysis show-
ed from $5 to $7 worth of ammonia.
SMITH.-But the scientists tell us
there is no plant food found in muck,
and if there is, it is of a kind that makes
poor oranges, and unfit for market.
They also tell us that all animal man-
ures, cotton seed meal, linseed meal,
blood and bone are "parlous stuff"-if
you know what that meanr_,--Lua .v~rU
must get the chemicals into the orange,
and that the great trinity-phosphoric
acid, potash and ammonia-must be ob-
tained from particular sources, or you
get no good oranges.
SMITH-That reminds me of the mother
who told her daughter "you must not
go strawberrying, but if you do go," she
added, "you must get rood ones." It is but
a few years, in Florida, since "cow pen-
ning"was relied upon for both grove and
vegetable crops. It is but a comparativ-
ely short time that through the North a
dirty barnyard was an essential to a pro-
ductive farm and decayed vegetable
matter, sod, washings from the road
were all brought into the barnyard to
receive the liquid and solid -droppings
from the cattle. Decayed vegetable
matter, that's muck, horse and cow
manure, chicken lung, contents of pig
stye, etc., are the base of plant growth-
containing the aforesaid trinity-and are
perfect fertilizers. As the old Scotch-
men said, "there's nothing like dung."
BROWN-3ut admitting what you say
for the sake of argument, you cannot
go.t dung enough, with the help of muck
-to fertilize these sandy lands. Be.
cause you cannot raise feed enough to
keep the stock necessary to produce the
In anure.
SMITH-I know that has been the al-
most universal impression with South-
ern farmers, and it has done more to
keep immigrants from Florida-this
idea that general farming was not prac-
ticable-that you must buy your hay and
grain to feed stock, and that milk and
butter and home grown pork were out of
the question. But that impression was
a miLstaiti one.
BRowN-How mistaken one? These
lands will neither grow clover, timothy
or blue grass, for hay, nor corn if the
season is dry.
SMITH--True, but they will grow sub-
stitutes for all these. Take that won-
d'-rful pea recently introduced into Flor-
ibla; as the tramp said of mince pie, "it
was bread and meat and tolerable lodg-
ing," this pea is both fodder and grain.
You can cut a big crop of grain feed or
fodder within three months of planting,
and as with clover the second growth
produces the best crop of seed. I had
my barns filled with pea hay last fall and
have done buying Northern hay. I in-
tend to fill my barns this year with the
first cuttings, after proving last year
that I can get as many peas from the
s'-cond growth of vine, and even more
than from the first. With all the hay I
want from the first cuttings I shall let

in tangible form, says the Journal of
Finance, but with the strength of man
remaining the same and the skill of
the present artisan, though showing
some advances, still not distancing
that of the ancient Egyptian, the vast
increase of human resources is due
mainly to the influence of invention in
discovering ways in which machines
can do the work of men. The compe-
tition is no longer a competition of
skill of labor, but that of invention,
and in America we are far in advance
of any other nation in this respect. A
man who fifty years ago could turn out
a value equal to a scant wage, now, at
fairly good wages, is able to bring
into being four or five or six times the
value.
A Pretty Girl Station Agent.
Passengers over the Rumford Falls &
Buckfield road always notice upon the
platform at East Peru a plump and
pretty girl who wears the regalia of
the station agent. She wears a cap
with gold lace and a brass shield, and
on the ;!esricld is "Station Agent." This
is Miss Lillie Howard, and she has had
charge of the station at East Peru for
some time. She is attentive to her
duties, the' trainmen always have a
smile and a pleis-an t w .I, for her, and
many a druiu.r a'vaiiy attempts to
appropriate a share of her smile as the
train whisks past. 'Tis needless to
comment on the neatness of East
Peru's station.

The Stirring Experienoa of a Kqn-
tucklan In the Cherokee Strip. -

terrible Scenes Witnessed in the Mad
Rush for Land In the NewIy.Organ.
Ized Territory-Hard Times
in Store.
Lieut. Arnold, who is attached -to
the staff of Gov. Brown, of Kentucky,
recently arrived here from the Chero-
kee strip, where lie was successful in
securing a splendid claim, says the
St. Louis Republic. On the mem-
orable morning he made'the run on a
thoroughbred race horse he had brought
there expressly for the purpose.
Starting from a point four miles east
of Hunnewell he had to ride sixteen
miles south of a point known as Black-
wells. He covered the distance in
fifty-two minutes, accompanied by a
"cow-puncher" thoroughly acquainted
with the country. At least fifty well-
mounted men were in hot pursuit for
the same claim, but the lieutenant got
there first. Several other Kentuckians
were similarly successful in the same
vicinity. Lieut. Arnold's quarter sec-
tion of one hundred and sixty acres is
one of the titbits of the strip. It is
close to the Shekasky river, and is a
splendid tract of land, worth between
two thousand and five thousand dollars
according to experts.
Arnold is a sunburnt, sinewy-look-
ing man of about forty. He said: "I
was prepared for a tough experience,
but, great heavens! not for what I saw
and underwent. To begin with, thou-
sands of men and women were kept
forty-eight hours in the line endeavor-
awful. At the time the rush was made
everyone was black and uurecogniz-
able. There was hardly a drop of wa-
ter to drink, and washing was an im-
possibility. Fifteen thousand grimy
human beings tore madly into the new
domain, reminding me more of the
maggots on a carcass than anything
else. The sooners were in possession
almost everywhere. Lots of them were
shot, and I saw one sooner hanged in
short order. In my ride I noticed near-
ly twenty dead horses and quite a
number of dead and dying men.
"There was fighting and bloodshed
enough to satisfy the very worst of the
bad men from Bitter creek. Not far
from my claim two men were quarrel-
ing with drawn pistols, when a third
interfered and endeavored to separate
them. He got a shot through the wrist,
and then the two proceeded to kill
each other. 1 saw one fellow lying
dead with a handkerchief drawn
tightly around his ssck. lie had been
strangled, and when searched four
hundred and fifty dollars was found on
him. When I made the rush I wore
mighty little and carried no arms, but
I felt more comfortable when my Win-
chester was in my hands. The scenes
after the rush were terrible. I saw
two women who were burned by the
prairie fire and the soldiers shot by the
sooners. In fact I have seen enough
of that sort of thing to last me the rest
of my life. Blackwell, the so-called
Indian, who gave his name to the town
site and owns every other lot in it, is a
'squaw man.' He put his hay up to
one dollar a bale after the rush, but
the boys went to him with a few
double-barreled persuaders on their
shoulders, and he was glad to get
down to fitty cents after a brief discus-
sion. They also made him stand by
original prices for his town lots. I
shouldn't be surprised if they were to
hang him nny morning.
"Well, I'm glad to get away from the
strfp awhile, altlioug.Lh, nov that the?
rain has come and the dli-t settled,
there is not so much hardship.
"It was fearful at first, especially
for women, and I am afraid even now
an awful winter is in store for many of
the settlers.
"My claim is disputed,like all the rest,
but I have a clear case. My papers are
all right, and I expect to return in a
month or so and commence improve-
ments."
What Machinery Is Doing.
One of the astonishing facts in the
field of industry is the marvelous
power of machinery operated by hand.
In the cotton trade, in 1850, the average
product of every employee was some-
thing less than $700, while thirty years
later he was able to produce a value of
$1,200, notwithstanding the reduced
price of cotton. In the woolen factory
the change was much the same, the
hand of each worker being able as long
ago as 1850 to make over $1,200 of prod-
uct, and in 1880 about $1,800, the pro-
portion of material consumed by im-
proved machinery being about the
same. How much the world is in-
debted to invention cannot be stated


will be to equalize assessments. At pre-
sent we have a State tax levied upon the
property of the different counties of the
State as assessed by the county assessor.
There is no established rule as to the
assessment of property. In some
counties, it is alleged, property is assessed
at its full cash value, in others at one-
third its cash value and in still others at
one-half. As can easily be seen the prac-
tice must of necessity work a hardship
and injustice to some. Those whose
property is assessed at its full value are
paying more than their share for the
public good._' ....
In South Florida, especially, this prac-
tice works a great hardship to those who
are trying to develop an industry.
Orange lands, when once they are cleared
and set to young groves, are assessed four
times what good farming land is in other
sectionsof the State. The people who
are making these young groves are less
able to pay a high rate of tax than those
farliving in theming sections for the
reason that it will be many years from
the time they start operations before
they can expect to realize a cent for
their money invested or their labor ex-
pended.
It should be the duty of a board of
equalization to see that all property is
assessed at its actual present cash value,
not its prospective value. It should strive
to have each property owner pay his pro-
portion of the expenses of the State gov-
ernment, levying the amount on the
value of his holdings-their present
value, not their possible future value.

marck has sold his mtmo!rs to a South'

A Times-lIniun correspondent writing
from Interlachen refers to the develobl
meant, in small way, oCthe canning in.
dustry at thT place. bf course the sim-
ple fact that Mr. A. or-B. put up a few
dozen cans r,f orange marmalideor a few
hundredgl.fsses of guava and disposed
of them at profitable prices is of no ea-
pecial interest to the public at large, ex-
cept that it indicates what might be
done on a large scale.,
The correspondent in question records
the fact that a Mr. Long had for some
time made jelly and marmalade for his
own use, and his friend who had sam-
pled it induced hfm to engage in the
business nroe extensively. The result
was that this season he increased his fa-
cilities and put up two hundred and fifty
dozen pound packages of the jelly and
one hundred dozen of the orange marma-
lade, which he sold at $4.25 and $3.25
per dozen, respectively.
We have no means of knowing what
profit Mr. Land derived from this ven-
ture, but as the bulk of the raw material
was on the ground and would probably
have gone to waste had it not been uti:
lized in the manner it was, the presump-
tion is that the profit was good.
In the near future we think that little
canning factories, utilizing the surplus
products of the groves and gardens, will
be almost as nurnmrous in Florida as the

The Dorking in This Country.
All attempts to bring the Dorking to
the front in this country have failed, yet
in England the Dorking is found on every
farm. It is acknowledged to be the best
of all table fowls, and choice ones are
annually imported; but while a few farm-
ers will &ive them a place on the farm
they do not appear to be able to com-
pete with the Plymouth Rocks, Brahmas
and Wyandottes. The Dorking hen is
an indifferent layer, and as the Ameri-
can farmer prefers a breed that is not on-
ly the best for market but also for eggs
(which he will never find) his dissatisfac-
tion with the Dorking is probabb due to
its inability to cope with the Leaborn
and other breedsin eggproduction.There
is also another objection to Dorkings.
They are somewhat tender when very
young, compared with other breeds, as
the chicks feather rapidly and cannot
thrive if neglected in the least. That the
D rkingis hardy when matured, however,
is admitted, and a cross of a Dorking

Women and Poultry.
If anything has tended to lessen the
interest of farmers in poultry as a busi-
ness, it is the frequent allusion to the so.
called advantages of poultry as a source
of revenue for women. It is true that a
woman may care for a small flock by
throwing down a handful of corn for the
hens ocamionaly, but poultry deserves
a place (in the farm as a business. It re-
qnires a man, and a strongman, to man-
age a large number of hens. He mutt
shovel snow, use a wheelbarrow, handle
buckets of water and
well as perform other arduous work.
advice o often repeated For thewomen to
manage the poultry on thefarm has done
much to lead the farmers to turn the
chickens over to the women-folks as un-
worthy of men. It is about as much the
duty of women to carefor the chickens ns
for the piga, and we believe a women has
all she can do inside 6f the house. To
keep a small flock may be on a par with
raising a pet lamb near the house, but
the farmer should divorce chickens and
women and take a turn at the: handle
himself, making a business of it, and he
will find it will pay him well for all the
abor he bestows in that direction.-

STATE BOARD OF EQUALIZATION.

legislature-we mean the genuine article.
not a body of demagogues and "wire
pullers," but broad minded, conservative,
patriotic men, if not statesmen, we feel
sure that one of the first acts it will pass
will be an act to establish a State board
of equalization-a board whose duty it

Locke on appeal from a commissioner's
decision. The court overruled a mo-
tion of the district attorney to dismiss
the appeal, and upon a hearing of the
case sustained the commissioner and
ordered the Cninese deported to China.
The court modified the order of the
commissioner to the extent of changing
the sentence from confinement at
'hard labor", to "employment;" the
court holding that if the law required
"confinement at hard labor," it was a
criminal proceeding, and the statutes
would be unconstitutional, but that if
the "employment" was for sanitary
purposes during confinement, pending
deportation, the act was valid under the
law. The United States marshal for
Southern district of Florida will have to
take the Chinese to San Francisco and
put them on board a vessel bound lor
China. The government bears all ex
penses, which in this case will aggre-
gate $10.000.
Captain Welsh of Welshton has in his
possession a great curiosity in the shape
of a coin, which is probably the most
ancient in the world. It is about an inch
and a half in diameter, and is a mixture
of copper and gold. The coin was found
by a negro named Eichelberger on Mr.
B. C. Bowman's place near Welshton.
It was at the bottom of a muck bed
seven feet below the surface, in what
was once the channel of a stream, but is
now covered with heavy forest timber.
On one side of the coin is a reoresent-
ation of a man attacking another. Cap-
tain Welsh thinks it represents tlhe
murder of Abel. On the sameside is an
inscription, ch though submitted to
a number of scholars,has not yet been de-
ciphered, nor have the characters been
recognized as belonging to the alphabet
of any language now known. On the
otier side is a representation of a man,
evidently a Caucasian. There is also
an inscription on this side which no one
has been able to make out, though it
has been placed under the moat power-
ful microscopes. The coin was evident-
ly worn as an ornament, as shown by a
hole punched near the edge.-Times

LOST ATLANTIS NOT A, MYTH.
A Eoronto Professor BelJeves It Was the
American Continent.
Sgnaatius D,>nnelly finds supporter
of his Atlanti; theory in Sir Dpniel
Wilson. president of the University of
Toronto, who declares, after a great
Sdeal of search, that the lost Atlantis
was not a myth, but that it was really
the continent of America. He accounts
for its disappearance from view in a
iiFrrent way, but that is merely inci-
j uii tal.
Donnel ly s theory, as summarized by-
the Milwaukee Journal, was thap the
land was ,submerged by some great
.volcanic upheaval, and that from those
who escaped in the continents of Eu-
ircpe an-l Asia came thetradition of the
dtltue. Sir Daniel rejects this expla-
nntion as being disproved by the fact
that there are no traces of such vol-
ca n ic action either on the continent or
in the ocean bed. He believes that the
ianrient Egyptians, the most progres-
s.ive and adventurous people ofancient
times, discovered the continent,, but.
that in the decline both of their learn-
iug and power it became lost to view
and existed at the time our knowledge
Of Egypt begins merely as a shadowy
tradition.
It is his opinion that traces of the
Egyptians of those days are to be
sought in the ruined cities of Central
.m-r;, whose origin has never been
dtttc-rnined or even been made the basis
iif any reasonable theory. Such a dis-
.overv would furnish a substantial
t-asis for the legend of the lost Atlan-

A Lover of Fresh Air.
Queen Victoria seems almost imper-
vious to draughts and cold, and no-
doubt this makes her somewhat incon-
siderate to those around her. ,Her
sons and daughters frequently com-
plain of the coldness of their mother's
home. She i quite unlike most old
ladies of her age in many of her tastes;
and while they enjoy the cozy armp-
chairs before the fire the queen is tak-
ing herdaily drive. It has to be very.
bad weather to, stop this regular out-
;. ing; for, though rain and snow may
close the, carriage, her majesty is al-
ways very loath to give up her drives.
And they are drives! The pace at
which she likes to go is another in-
stance in which the queen differs from
most of her sex and age. They are, as
.a .rule, content with, and even anx-
Sious fpr, a very slow and dignified man-
ner of progression. But not so her
Smajesty. Twelve ~niles an hour is the
pace at which she insists on being
driven when she is in the country, and,
as she knows the distances of all the
drives in the neighborhood of her dif-
.f rent. homes, she at, once detects if
her commands are not being carried
out, Directly a horse is unable to go
this pace he is no longer eligible for
her majesty's use.
Insect Pests.
An English scientist is quoted as
authority for the statement that there
are five times as many species of in-
sects as there are species of all other
Living things put together. The oak
Street alone supports 450 species of in-
sects. and 200 kinds make their home

boldt estimated that the number of

tween 150,000 and 170,000, but scientific

than 750,000, %without taking into con-
sideration the parasite creatures. Of

The present work furnishes not, only
an account of shorthand in foreign
countries and in the United States, but
nearly the full statistics of instruction
from 1889 up to the summer of 1891 in
this country, with an account of the
extent to which stenographers have
been employed in courts, in legal de-
cisions, and in other public services.
There are thousands of shorthand so-
cieties in Germany, France and Eng-
land, and in this country, whose work
is to disseminate a knowledge of the
art, and the introduction of shorthand.
into the public schools is to be one of
the next steps in secondary education.
The typewriter is next to shorthand
as a labor-saving instrument, and the
shorthand systems and the principal
typewriting machines have already

It is such an aid in all sorts of busi-
ness transactions that we could no
more go back to the old habits than we
could go back to the stage coaches
which fifty years ago conveyed our
grandfathers across the country. In
this country the number of persons re-
ceiving instruction in shorthand from
July 1, 1889, to June 30,1890, was 57,-
375, and of this number 23,335 were
males and 26,005 females. All these
were taught in schools and classes,
and out of the whole number 7,228
were instructed by mail.
In 229 schools and classes in which
shorthand was introduced during the
scholastic year ending June 30, 1801,
the number of persons taught orally
was 4,150, which with those by mail
made a grand total of 4,738. Of those
taught orally 2,474 were males and
1,658 were females. This is as near a
correct statement of statistics as Mr.
Rockwell has been able to arrive at,
and it shows the vast extent and usa
of shorthand instruction in this qoun-
try in all the departments of life.
Stenography has come to stay, and
typewriting has come to stay with it,
and the two, combined with the tele-
graph and telephone, have been great-
ly instrumental in accelerating the
progress of ideas and facilitating the
methods of business and the produo-
tion of literature.

ABORIGINES AND COPPER.
An Interesting Discovery of Tools ,n tLh
Keweenaw Copper Mines
A peninsula called Keweenaw point,
jutting into Lake Superior from the
southern shore toward the northeast,
is famous as the center of a vast cop-
per mining industry. Last year the.
mines produced no less than 105,586.0 *)
pounds of refined copper, and it is ceti-
mated that during the next
production wiil be increae se by .et.
least 20 per cent.
Mr. E. B. Hinsdale, who contributes
to the latest bulletin of the American
Geographical society an article on the
subject, has much that is interesting
to say about the numerous prehistoric
mines which have been found in this
region, says the Scientific American.
-. These ancient mines, judging from
their extent, must have been worked
for centuries. Who the workers were
no one can tell. They seemed to have
known nothing of the smelting of cop-
per, for there are no traces of molten
copper. What they sought were pieces
that could be fashioned by cold ham-
mering into useful articles and orna-
ments. They understood the use of
fire in softening the rocks to enable
them to break away the rock from the
masses of copper. They could not
drill, but used the stone hammer
freely.
More than ten carloads of stone ham-
mers were found in the neighborhood
of the Minnesota mine. In one place
the excavation was about fifty feet
deep, and at the bottom were found
timbers forming a scaffolding, and a


large sheet of copper was discovered
there. In another place, in one of the
old pits, was found a mass of copper
weighing forty-six tons. At another
place the excavation was twenty-six
feet deep.
In another opening,-at the depth of
eighteen feet, a mass of copper weigh-
ing over six tons was found, raised
about five feet from its native bed by
the ancients and secured on oaken
props. Every projecting paint had
been taken off, so that the exposed
surface was smooth. Whoever the
workers may have been, many centu-
ries must have passed since their mines
were abandoned. The trenches and
openings have been filled up, or nearly-
so. Monstrous trees have grown over
their work and fallen to decay, other
generations of trees springing up.
When the mines were rediscovered,
decayed trunks of large trees were ly-
ing over the works, while heavy
growth of live timber stood 'on the
ground.
Height of Different Natlonalitles.
The English professional classes are
the tallest of adult males, attaining
the average height of five feet nine
and one-fourth inches. Taken right
through, the English and American
races are approximately of the same
height. Most European nations aver-
age, for the adult male, five feet six
inches; but the Austrians Spaniards
and Portuguese just fall short of this
standard. -

BURY THE PAST.
Every day is a fresh beginning,
Every morn is the world made new;
You who are weary of sorrow and sinning,
Here is a beautiful hope for you-
A hope for me and a hope for you.
All behind us is past and over,
The tasks are done and the tears are shed,
Yesterday's errors let yesterday cover;
Yesterday's wounds, which smarted and
bled.
Are healed with the healing which night hat
shed.
Yesterday now is a part of forever,

A Woman who "looketh well to the

performs all the cares that devolve up-
on her as a housekeeper, mother and

contact, is indeed a treasure that is
seldom found.
A woman of the above type is not
found every day, and thequestion comes
up, why nol? One says because she has
too much to tax her, too many cares
thrust upon her. Another says because
she does not try, and we are inclined to

BY the time this issue of the AGRI-
CULTURIST reaches its readers the new
year will be well launched upon us. We
say well launched and we hope it will he
so to all in the full meaning of the words.
That a few days moreor less have passed
availeth nothing, but it is what we have
done, are doing and are striving to do
that determines whether or not it is well.
Have we given pleasure to another,
Whether it be friend, sister or brother?
lave we tried their burdens to lift
And the good from bad to shift?
--j=- Ksc.ith an earnest loving heart


To those who can answer in the affirm-
ative, the year is indeed well begun.
The holidays is a season of giving
among friends and relatives, parents
and children, rich and poor. All it is to
be hoped with that great philanthropic
principal in view of giving j, y to others.
We read that "it is more blessed to give
than to receive," and the test oF years
has proven it true. Yet there has been
many a gift made with the purest of
motives, which has brought sorrow to
the heart of the giver. Why? Because of
a lack, or an apparent lack of apprecia-
tion on the part of the recipient. Many a
fond parent has given a child valuable
gifts only to find later that it has been
squandered and used for anything but
the purpose for which it was intended,
thus converting what otherwise would
have been joy to sorrow and regret.
What is true in this case is true to a
more or less extent in all gifts. There is
great joy in giving and we believe a
greater pleasure in knowing that the
gifts are appreciated.
During the past two weeks have you
received a token of kind remembrance or
love from parents or friends, possibly in
some distant country? Did you simply
look on it as a Christmas present and
place it among your trophies, simply to
occupy a place on the shelf, or did you
think of the kind spirit that prompted
the giver to remember you, and then.and
there showyour appreciation (not simply
of the article received) butof thethought-
tulness the friend possessed? If not,
make a resolution to do so at once. In
so doing you will add pleasure to the
giver and at thesame time do your duty.
The gift may have been only a pretty
,.ard f et tt re must have been a though ,-
fulness and a kindly feeling which waR
*he germ of th gift, in the heat of tbh
giver.
Should we not makeanotherrps'lution
and that is to endeavor to so live that
we may be a constant source of ei j sy-
ment to those around us, for by doing
thusly our own cup of happiness will b,
full.
Home Amusements.
We reproduce the following from Good
Housekeeping, thinking a large number
of our little folks enjoying the holidays
at home will find amusements therein to
make themselves merry with.
First in the list is send one person out
of the room, who must be in the secret
with the leader. The latter tells the com-
pany to choose any object in the room
and the person outside will be able to tell
,what it is. The object being selected, the
person is called in and the leader points
to a number of things, including some-
thing black, the'object pointed to imme-
diately after the black article is the one.
This can be done a number of times, and

Nowadays there is no need to pay these
Prices, for we have no longer the choice
between paying through the nose to
Northern concerns, or going without.
We have right in our own State manu-
factories of fertilizers whose products
are sold to the grower at fair prices. At
the same time experiments are under way
in all parts of the State tending towards
a lessening of the cost of cultivation in
different ways-and there is small doubt
that the cost of production will gradu-
ally drop to a figure, at which, other
things permitting it, the orange may be
profitably raised for market.
But the other points are on a different
footing, and until something practical

t-hebry which is offered to the Ipubl-c
with such profusion-the business of
orange growing will remain a pleasure
for the wealthy-a hobby for the rich
man whose money is made in some
other line of trade.
We are not alone in the boat, the
California grower is smiting his breast
and pondering deeply on the same sub-
ject. For years the energy of the two
communities has been given to raising up
young groves to a bearing age, now they
reach that desirable condition and the
cry goes up on all sides, "What shall we
do with our fruit?" Tne irrigator
waters, the fertilizer man feeds, the
grower foots all the bills and the rail-
road and commission agent reap the
-increase.
There seems but one answer to the
problem-and our brothers in California
are drawing near to it far faster than we
in Florida. Look through the mass of
theory that is offered to the public from
time to time, and select from it all that
seems most practicable and intelligent
and you will find that one idea under-
lies the whole-organization. To organiza-
tion we must assuredly look for salva-
tion, and it must be such as to include
every power in the State, no half meas-
ure will avail us anything. The Florida
Fruit Exchange has improved matters
to some extent. It has made an honest
effort, but its hands have never been suf-
ficiently strengthened by the hearty co-
operation of the public to enable it to
dictate terms to transportation compa-
nies, or to control the markets. The sys-
tem has also been open to criticism, and
so far it has failed in its original objects.
The very points in which its services
might be of such inestimable advantage
to the grower, viz, as an intelligence de-
partment is rendered void by the want
of authority as an organization to con-
trol the glutting and starving of the
market. The market becomes overfilled
and prices drop, the Exchange at once
says "stop shipping" and everyone stops.
As a consequence the market becomes
starved, and the Fruit Exchange advises
moderate shipments. Then everyone
rushes in, and,-makes shipments, and
another glut results. An organization-
which cannot control this will never save
us.
Much has been said and written about
the desirability of selling our oranges on
the trees-let us not consign a box of
fruit, but make the buyers come to us
anrd buy our produce on the ground.
Here again the system fails for wantof
co-operation. The buyers represent big
Northern houses, which combine and
agree to hold off unless they can buy at
a certain price. The growers, small and
large, have to fight this combination
single handed, with the natural result-
they are beaten-and then rush in and
consign (heir fruit in despair, because


Face to Face.
From the Florida Agrlculturirt
It seems Impossible for any intelligen
man, who is cognizant of the facts of tlih
case to doubt that tho, orange growing
community is brought face to face with
a critical if not the final stage of the
great problem-the to be, or not to be o:
profitableorange culture. The appalling
results of this year's shipments from
September to Christmas have caused an
almost universal uneasiness, and on al
sides the time-honored discussions or
over-production, transportation and the
great marketing problem are more than
usually prevalent.
Aside from all the hackneyed argu-
ments of the piazza parliaments and
spittoon debating societies, there is
among the best informed and most
conservative powers a deep seated feeling
of anxiety which is fully justified by the
course of events-each one feels that
there must be a change, and that if the
growing of oranges for profit is to con-
tinue, some radical alteration of system
is absolutely necessary. The question is
when will all the theories which are so
freely offered and discussed, boil down
Into something practical for the salva-
tion of the growers? We are already
face tu face with the fact that the ex-
penses of raising, packing, transporting
and selling are so ncair the total of reotMTns
that it is a mere toss-up in the case of
each individual shipment whether the
returns made will come out a plus or a
minus quantity-a mere accident will
decide the result.
No one will deny that while the
cheaper production of oranges is a deside-
ratum, in fact almost a necessity, the
transportation and marketing are really
the points of vital importance. Thefirst,
however, will no doubt come gradually
of its own accord, the two last never.
The cost of raising the orange is a matter
far more nearly in the hands of the
grower. For years we have paid exorbi.
tant prices for the food we have given
our trees; we have been' in the hands of
a most greedy class of monopolists who
had but few scruples of conscience-we
have paid from forty to fifty dollars a ton
for material worth thirty, and so long as
the golden fruit would bring us a price
that would pay us back for this unnec-
essary outlay, we grinned and bore it.


Orange Tree Blight.
From thuFl;orida Agrlcalturist.
Some years ago I was shocked to find
one of the trees in my old grove very
"sick." The leaves curled, the fruit did
not mature, the trunk became covered
with sprouts, etc. For some time I was
unable to find out what was the matter,
but at length I found that the disease
was the dreadful "blight," of which so
much has lately been said and written.
I repeatedly cut back the top, but of no
avail. Afterwards I found that the
neighboring trees, one after another,
were going the same way. About a year
ago I concluded to try a still more heroic
treatment. In addition to cutting back
the top one half to .two-thirds, I dug a
trench around the trunk, with a radius
of about six feet cutting the roots off
clean with an ax. This trench I partly
filled with stable manure, to which I
added roundboneand, ah r o
OOd L ca m .ximc t '..c .rt -, *.. *t -. .
by pouring upon it a barrel or two of
water, then covered it with earth, not
quite filling the trench.
In addition to this, I removed all the
earth from under the main roots, expos-
ing the top root, washed the roots, then
sprinkled dry lime and sulphur on and
under the roots, or else applied the lime
and sulphur spraying solution, I also
washed the trunks with soap and water,
and painted it with the insecticide. Then
I let the tree alone, giving it only the
same care given to other trees. The re-
sult thus far is very encouraging. In
the face of the fact that the blight is an
incurable disease, the trees give every
sign of returning health, and some have
matured a crop of Iruit the present year.
The disease may return, but there is at
present every indication of a cure. 1 have
no theory about it, except that thesevere
pruning, especially the root pruning,
caused new activity of the forces of the
tree, the formation of new cells, and more
active flow of the blood or sap of the or-
ganism, and thus broke up its clogged
and torpid condition. I am watching
the trees with anxious yet hopeful atten-
tion. Possibly my experiment may give
a valuable hint to others who are trying
to find a solution of the problem how to
check the disease; or I give it to the pub-
lic for what it is worth.

in many cases they find they havo just
what they do not want for a building.
From my experience, and from what
I can learn, a wooden structure-a
house within a house-is the most prac-
tical.
Now to go back to the curing. I first
began by putting my fruit on trays,then
the large raisin sweat boxes were used,
and now I use a picking box 21x16 inches
and 9 inches deep. I have tried the
Burnham process of wrapping and lin-
ing the boxes with paper; have also put
fruit in boxes in layers, with a layer of
paper on each layer of fruit, until the
box is full. In both cases I have met
with good success, but in wrapping it
necessitates a great amount of time and
labor, as I think every lemon ought to
be inspected before packing for market.
I find three advantages in wrapping
through the winter months: First, they
cure more slowly; second, they keep
firmer; third, it cures a better color,
which I consider important,and also the
wrappers absorb the superfluous moist-
ure, which prevents decay. I found the
percentage of decay, after five months
very slight. The Burnham method of
putting away fruit through the winter
months, I would recommend to those
who have not a tight house.
The most difficult task that confronts
us now is how to keep the fruit after it is
cured. Our lemon king, Mr. Garcelon.
tells us that he keeps his fruit in flne
conditionfor elevenor twelve months,
I suppose' that you all know that the
California lemon (su to speak), has got a
black eye in the eastern markets. My
experience has ieen or such a character
that I feel sure we are almost wholly to
blame for the bad reputation the Cali-
fornia lemon now has. We have been
shipping our fruit too well cured. The
people are not yet educated up to the
lemon that is cured, consequently we
have got to begin to shin colored lemons
instead of cured ones. If we ever ex-
pect to compete with the imported fruit
we shall have to market it under simi
lar conditions. I speak of this so that
localities, where the fruit is just coming
into bearing, may profit by our experi-
ence. But when we come to know more
about the process cf keeping our fruit, it
may be best to try to educate the masses,
so they will know 'what a cured lemon
is, and that one cured is worth three un-
cured ones.

THEY say that ndians have a great
sense of humor,and they laugh and joke
among themselves quite as much as
white men do; yet, marvels the New
York Independent, they see nothing
funny in the names which they give to
their children. Bishop Walker tells how

is our best hope if it can but be carried
cut in a practical way. What then
must this organization be, and how
must it be carried out? We only offer a
few general points for reflection, an elab-
orate scheme is not within the scope of
such an article.
To be successful, and to become the
salvation of the orange industry, such an
organization must be universal, that is,
it must be sufficiently strong to compel
every grower to join it. This may seem
rather strong measures, but nothing
short of this will be of any avail. Next,
it must command the confidence of the
whole community. It must be under
the management of men whose business
capacity is well-known, and whose in-
tegrity is beyond question. Given an
organization with these qualifications,
its role is easily outlined. It can con
trol shipment to the entire abolition of
glutted markets-it can present the
ruin of prices by the early shipment of
unripe fruit-it can do away with the
system of random consignments to com-
mission houses-it can abolish or amend

profit between relays of middlemen, and
it can approach the transportation com-
panies with a voice of authority, and of-
fer its own terms for their acceptance.
And are there no men in the great State
who fulfil the requisite condlitions neces-
sary to organize the grower into a com-
bination and manage the organization
when effected? Are there none among

Curing Lemons.
This is a subject that will not become
threadbare until all the points bearing
on it are definitely settled. The lemon
industry in Florida is not as large as it
would perhaps be if we understood thor-
oughly how to cure and prepare tle fruit
for market.
At a recent meeting of, pomologists in
California Mr.. W. Hatch, a large
lemon grower, read the following paper:
Mr President, Ladies and Gentlemen:
Two years ago I was asked to read a
paper on tlie curing of th e

much difficulty: but to-day, whena
asLed to say a few words on the subject
I find it very much more difficult, be-
cause my experience from time to time
makes me feel that I know but little con-
cerning the subject. There is yet much
to learn, but I feel confident that the
difficulties will be overcome and that we
shall yet cure the finest lemon in the
world.
Several methods of curing have been
tried and with very good success. While
we have been experimenting and finding
out the best methods of growing, culti-
vating, pruning, curing, and also irrigat-
ing the lemon, we have very nearly left
out two very important problems, and
that is how we shall market our lemons,
and what plan for lemon houses that
shall be most practical for the majority
of our lemon growers to adopt.
I will first touch lightly on some plan
of marketing our fruit. First, in my
opinion, we should have uniform cur-
ng. Second, uniform grading and pack-
ng under a _brand for each locality or
organization. In order to do this suc-
cessfully the fruit in the different locali-
ties must be brought to a central Curing
house and cured underone management;
when this is done and the goods prop-
erly packed, branded, and only of prime
quality the question will be solved. Un-
ler this system it seems to me we .shall
be on the road to success.
The next question is, how shall the
emon house be 1 'ilt? and of what ma-
terial, wood, stcn )r brick? also. how
shall we ventilated it' Then again, the
climatic conditions iar sometimes so var-

Th ST ANDREWS BAY




Horticultural a d I Nrovmmeut







ORGANIZED JANUARY. 9, 1892.


The object of this Association is to Improve the Country adjacent to St.
Andrews Bay and to
Develop its Resources as a Fruit-Growing Country.
To accomplish this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tracts of Two-
and-a-half and FiveAcres to such parties only as will inlprove them by the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Illiprovenients as will enhance the
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
To the end that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
AS TO RELIABILITY OF THE ASSOCIATION.
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer t6 it is: Any person employing the Association
Sto make imprpteineits in.i\ deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any re.ponsill.' bu-iini-ss man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their ,owni hbnomr to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
The Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding agaifist forest fires, dishonest pilferers
or damages from any cause possible to be prevented.
From a careful estimate of the probable expense and income of a fruit
plantation in the St. Andrews Bay country a few figures are given:
Price of ana per acre, say $25 to $50; cost of clearing, say $20; *ost of planting 1st
,year, say $30; cost of cultivation each year thereafter, $20
It is not extravagant to estimate that a 1-acre vineyard will on the third
year, if properly cultivated, yield $200 worth of fruit, and of peaches nearly or quite
the same, while figs should do even better than that. Then, though perhaps a little
longer, some of them, in coming into profitable bearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, plums, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japan chestnuts, pecans, and .many other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
are almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yield large returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buoy will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
R EM E M B E R, the Association Lands will be sold on Easy
Terms of Payment; but improvements must be paid for as satisfactory proof is given
that, the work has been performed. CORRESPONDENCE SOLICITED.
Address. R. E. HOWARD, Sec.
