When My Ship Comes In.
Away in the sea, oh, I wonder where,
Somewhere, somewhere, in the waters
Where the winds are soft and the skies
are fair
In a mystic country no man ever knew,
My ship rides safe in a dreamy calm;
Perhaps by an isle where the lotus
Perhaps by an isle of the spreading palm,
Perhaps-who know? Ah, yes, who
But her cargo is safe, where'er she be.
And her crew will tire of the lazy life,
And her prow will cut her course through
the sea
Some day, I know, like a gleaming
S knife.
But, oh, as I patiently sit and wait,
It seems so long to me. so long
She lingers outside the harbor gate,
And her sailors list to the mermaid's
But ships come in, and I'll yet see her
In time that. is long or time that
is short;
Although, forsooth, she seems to prefer
The sunnyislesato the grimy port.
Cofldence in Our Currency.
The Tampa Times of a recent
date says:
"Theie isn't an unemployed man
in the country but has confidence
enough in the currency to take it
for a day's work or a year's work."
It is the lack of confidence in our
currency which has caused the late
financial panic. ;It is the confidence
in the value of our money which
gives it any value whatever as a cir-
cnlating medium, and the gradual
lack of confidence which shakes on r
financial standing. As long as moe,
have confidence in our currency th. y
will make investments and barter
in it; but it is with money an it is with
a man, when you have lost confidence
in him you hesitate to trust hilm.

the vast amount of it issued that

worth; so it is with the 42 cent

coined no more dollars than there

them no one would now hestitate-
our financial system would now be a
stable and sound one. It is nothing
more nor less than lack of confi-

The Free Ship Bill.
The prospect for the passage of
the bill for free ships is far from en-
couraging. It is deplorable to. see
that thirty years of successive pro-
hibitive tariffs has so deeply instilled
into the American people, the doc-
trine that our commerce must be
handicapped by protective tariffs. It
has produced stagnation in business,
starvation of faulilies and made
tramps of hundred of industrious
workmen. Our shipping in cur-
tailed by tile present statute pro-
viding for the building of the ships
that carry our flag, at home.
There have been governments be-
fore ours who ha'e tried isolation
from the world by prohibitive tariffs
and have fallen to ruin. China,
Greece and Rome have drank of that
bitter cup of experience. Must we
be obliged to follow in their steps.
Protective tariffs cause national iso-

nation, and national isolation is

followed by stagnation in business
and commeicinl downfall.

Senator Paso's Speech.
The Buoy is in receipt of an able
speech delivered in the United States
senate by Hon. Samuel Pasco, in the
strong advocacy of the Nicaragua
canal bill; thus proving that we
should look with pride on our junior
senator and strive to assure his re-
election at the expiration of his term.
How sad it is that his colleague
has not courted the respect anb ad-
miration ol his constituency as has
Senator Pasco. West Flori.a should
by all means furnish a man to.succeed
Mi. Call, and one who will make some
exertion for the development of our
section and the fostering of our natu-
ral advantages.

another day, has promised to do so, and
will announce through ths Buor later, on
what date he will be here to receive
-Tt seems that it is not generally

'nit at once, as no tax will be paid unless
the funds are in hand for the purpose.
Even though the amount may b.e small we
cannot afford to advance it. Our friends
will please govern themselves accordingly.
-By reference to the card of the
St. Andrews Hotel, it will be seen that Mr.
J. T. Bondurant has assumed proprietor-
ship.in place of Mrs. Wilson, who leaves
us to conduct a hotel at River Junction.
Mr. Bondurant assures the BuoY that the
hotel will be entirely overhauled and
many improvements added and that for
next year's buisness it will rank among
the good hotels of the state; meanwhile
guests will.have no cause to complain of
the entertainment they will receive under
the present conditions. The BI;O be-
speaks for the new proprietor a paving
and growing buisness.
-Washington Co; Guide: "WVe
received a very interesting article on an
Electric Railway from Chipley to St. An-
drews. It would be a good scheme for
passenger traffic, bnt as the most of the
traffic would be lumber, turpentine and
rosin, we think it would be too heavy to
be handled by an electric current on a
a fifty miie line." The editor of the
Guide has evidently a very limited idea of
the possibilities of the St. Andrews Bay
country to produce articles for railroad
traffic, if once we had a railroad of any
kind to carry off our surplus. True, but
little surplus is now demanding shipment;
but once give us a road, and we challenge
any portion of the state to do more in th e
way of turnishing railroad traffic than
ours. And again the editor of the Guide
must have forgotten the feasts of fish and
oysters he has enjoyed at the bay, which
had been captured from an inexhaustible
supply, waiting only for an opportunity
to be shipped by rail to consumers north
of us.
-The past week has been one of
more than usual activity in social circles,
and the old-time geniality of St An-
drews people has manifested itself to a
degree. A marked feature of the week
was a surprise prepared last Monday
night, upon Mrs. M. J. Corly. the popular
landlady of the boarding house, corner of
Buenna Vista avenue and Drake street.
By previous arrangement, about forty
people, young and old, assembled at
Ware's Hall, and armed with ice cream
anad other refreshments and musical in-
struments in the hands of skillful manip-
ulators proceeded in a body to the lady's
home, and having stormed her castle took
possession thereof. It was soon found
that room there was insufficient for the
exercise of dancing propensities, so an
adjournment was had to the Sanitarium,
opposite, and here the festivities were
kept up until the small hours of morning
admonished the revelers that even pleas-
ure has its limit, and reluctantly the
younger portion of the party followed the
example of their elders and sought their
homes, retaining long to be rcmemnbered
impressions of a night of happiness and
the hospitality of the lady surprised I

--Last Friday night Mr. and Mrs.

pany at their home in the West End, \ith

upon each participant.

ness education at a nominal cost.
-W'. H. Shands' standing invita-
tion te visit his store at Parker is well
worthy of consideration. He is less am-
bitious to accumulate a fortune in the
mercantile business than to build up a
growing and lasting trade, hence his
prices are keDt at the lowest margin of
of profit and his sales are corresponding-
ly complimentary to his wisdom.
-Once every year, at least, L. M.
Ware,jr. gathers his friends around him
and ei.tertains them right royally. And
last Thursday that the anniversary of his
birth might be appropriately celebrated,
the evening was made the occasion of one
of these annual festivals. The invita-
tions were quite general, no one being in-
tentionally slighted, and few failed to re-
spond with their presence, and when all
were assembled in Ware's Hall dancing
was indulged in and at an appropriate
hour'refreshments were served and noth-
ing was omitted to insure the enjoyment
of the guests. Every participant will
look forward with the hope that succeed-
ing anniversaries will again bring them
together with as pleasant associations.
Florida's Treasury.
'he state treasurer's report for
1894 has just been completed, and
shows the state's ready cash to be
almost four times as large as at the
same time of the previous year. On
January 1, 1895, there was in the
state treasury $161,043.18, against
$41,130.93 on January 1, 1894.

is one place in Florida in need of
good hotel accommodations, that
place is River Junction, and every

there as is a matter of daily occur-

advent of Mrs. Wilson, and whoever
avails themselves of her hospitality

will be sure to go again and speak a
good word for her to others who may
be called to River Junction. The
Buoy wishes her unbounded success
in her new location.

The "Swamp Angel," the eight-
inch Parrot gun, which during the
civil war created astonishment and
something more in Charleston, S. C.,
by sending a shell 7,000 yards into
the streets of that city from a battery
liear Morris Island, is now said to be
an ornament to a di-inking fountain
in Trenton, N. J. A story is told of
its construction that may bear retell-
ing. The colonel of a New York en-
gineer regiment was ordered by Gen-
eial Gilmore to prepare a lodgement
tor the gun in position nearly a
mile out in the Carolina wani; and
to make requisition for all needed ap-
pliances. The colonel viewed the
scenery from the nearest dry land
and sent in a requisition for 200 men
thirt3 feet high to work in aswanmp
twenty feet deep. He was placa.d
under arrest at once by General Oil-
more and had a hard time to place at
his superior.

WELLEBLEY girls may add lacrosse to
their list of outdoor, sports. Miss Hills,
the director of physical culture at the
college, favors the idea, and has invited
the manager of the Harvard lacrosse
team to confer with her on the advisa-
bility of the innovation. Those who are
competent to speak say that there is no
reason why young women should not
play this game, in which our Canadian
friends find particular favor. It is free
from the shocks and jars of football, is
healthy, active and exciting, and is per-

STun eTs of sociology who are fond of
tracing back the customs of latter-day
man to the practices of his remote an-
cestry will note with interest the fact
that there is authority at least 600 years
old for the entry, "Steal not this book
for fear of shame," by which schoolboys
proclaim their ownership of a work. In
a curious volume in the Bodleian Li-
brary, cited by a contributor to the last
issue of The Ex-Llbris Journal, formerly
belonging to the monastery of Roberts
bridge, in Sussex. is the following in-
scription: "This book belongs to St.
Mary of Robertsbridge; whoever shall
steal it, or sell it, or in any way alienate
it, let him be anathema maranatha."
In the course of the fourter nth century
the book came into the possession ot
John, Bishop of Exeter, who seems to
have been troubled by the inscription
asbeing likely to give rise to injurious
suspicions with regard to himself. Ac.
cordingly, he wrote underneath it, under
date 1827: "', John, Bishop of Exeter,

Lime for Fowls.
There is plenty of- lime in the food.
Oyster shells serve more as gritty matter
than as a composition of the eggs, al-
though to a pertain extent they may par-
tially assist in that respect also, but if
fowls are properly fed there will be no
necessity for feeding lime in any form.
When hens lay s.ft shell eggs or -do not
lay well, it is r' for want of lime but
generally because thehens are too fat,
which obstructs the process of egg lay-
ing. If it is desired to feed lime, the
most convenient form is in the shape of
lime water, which may be used for mix-
ing the s, ft food. Lime may be given.

The Value of Grit.
Before you ask us what is the best
remedy for cholera, please examine the
grit box. See if it is full. See if the
grit is sharp. Round stones will not
grind; they must have sharp edges, and
they must be in constant supply. In-
digestion follows a scarcity of grit, and
indigestion is very often taken for chol-
era. See to it that there is a constant
supply ol the right article.-Iowa Home-

The Melon Pawpaw.
One of the most interesting fruit trees
in Florida is the melon pawpaw (Carica
Papaya), says J. Mortimer Murphy in
American Agriculturist. There are sev-
eral varieties of the tree in the State,
which vary sharply in form of growth,
hue of foliage and flavor of fruit; and
while all are more or less useful, only
the dwarf variety is culivated for its
fruit. This is a nativeof South America,
but is now as much at home in the Land
of Flowers as in its original haunts, and
grows on every kind of soil, from the
thin sand of the pine forests to the rich
humus of hammocks. The Florida na-
tive pawpaw frequently attains a height
of thirty feet, and a. proportionate thick-
ness:on moist lands; yet I doubt if it pro-
duces more fruit than its dwarfish con-
gener, whose height rarely exceeds fif
teen feet. The first mentioned hs nilan

U' bucket of water. Being very sensifiv
ly to removal.seeds should be planted where
s, the trees are expected to grow. or else
se they should be removed to their perma-
se nent places after producing a couple ol
leaves. The former is the better way,
however. The tree has no true branches,
its foliage consisting of broad, lobed
leaves, whose petioles are so long that
)e they supply their place, thus giving the
t trunk a dainty symmetrical aspect,
which is very pleasing to the eye. The
as fruit should not be eaten until it is fully
k ripe, and that stage may be known by
L the dull orange hue of the rind. The
A rind is thick and fleshy; and the seeds,
which are small and wrinkled, are ar-
ts ranged in flv: r)ws, which run length
e wise in a cavity in the center of the
d melon. Few persons take kindly to the
's fruit at first, but after awhile many get
e to like it, particularly as a salad when
n treated with pepper and sugar, to sharpen
its flavor. If boiled when young and
made into a sauce by adding, sugar and
lemon juice when it is well cooked, most
e people would consider it palatable.

e Florida Wild Flowers.-No. 2.
d There are exquisite pink flowers in
e profusion about Lake Winnemissett and
e all through the adjacent region, in May
t and June; and in July they are still
seen, though not so plentifully. I have
t been told that some of them are orchids,
f but there is more than one variety. Of
a two kinds which I have observed as
f more prominent, one has a long spur at
the base of the petals and inclines
toward the cup shape; this is an orchid,
I believe. The other is charmingly sym-
metrical, an open single flower.
S Peas seem as characteristic of the
e woods as they are valuable in the culti-
vation of the soil. While they lack the
fragrance of the sweet pea, they have
quite as much sprightliness and grace,
and, like the daisy, peep at one every-
where. There is a large lavender pea
blossom growing on a vine, twining in
the grass and weeds, which is specially
admirable. The whole vine is delicate,
stem and leaf, and the flower is a large,
perfect blossom, most delicately tinted,
sometimes running almost into pink,
but generally a true lavender.
Then there is a little pea, sometimes
red, sometimes white, often a "wee,
modest, crimson-tippit flower" that is
anywhere in the grass, waiting to smile
back if it has a chance. A jaunty little
yellow fellow, smaller than any, butspry
as the squirrel who quarreled with the
mountain, completes my present list of
wild peas.
Driving a long way in the flatwoods
in July, an unusual yellow flower was
noticed. Our little party named it the
candelabra, for its golden branches re-
called so vividly the Scripture illustra-
tions of the golden candlesticks, the
name came involuntarily. As it was wet
and the flower book had been forgotten,
none were gathered for close inspection;

A reorganization of the Cypress Mill
Company is among the probabilities of
Sthe near future at Panasoffkee. Im-
portant additions to the machinery of
the mill are now being made, and when
completed will greatly add to its capa-
city for first-class work. A railroad
from the mill to the swamp will soon be
constructed which will furnish logs to
keep the mill running, independent of
rafting facilities. The new store of the
mill company is now completed. It is
lathed and plastered throughout and the
walls are coated with a smooth aud hard
finish. A wide porch surrounds it on
three sides. It is'the finest building of
the kind between Ooala and Tampa.

A meeting of the year-round citizens
of Green Cove Spring was held the other
night. It was attended by a large ma-
jority of the taxpayers and representa-
tive business men of the town. Mayor
Christian Black was in the chair, with
Messrs. J. E. Law and W. D. Randall as
secretaries. The object of the meeting
was to take under consideration the pro-
priety of bonding the corporation, and,
after tull discussion ,of the matter, it
was resolved by a large majority that
the town be bonded for not exceeding
fifty thousand dollars nor less than'
thirty thousand dollars for the purpose
of purchasing the Spring property and
improving the same. A committee of
seven was appointed for the purpose of
drafting a suitable bill to be presented
the next legislature for power to issue
bonds for the purposes set forth in the
resolution. It was a very harmonious
and enthusiastic convention.
Miss Helen Harcourt, who for many

from the trunk of the tree, above each
petiole, and has several sharp edges and
a pointed end. It is thickest through
the middle. The tree,-being dioecious,
he pistillate specimen must be close to
its staminate companion to yield abund-
antly. The males produce their pale
yellow flowers in clusters, and the fe-
males their large sturdy blossoms at the
base of the petioles, directly on the trun,
immediately under the thick crown og
upper leaves. These flowers develop rap-
idly into fruits, which sometimes attain
a weight of several pounds in a cor>-
paratively short time. The average num-
ber of "melons" to each stalk is about
two, and as the tree is richly endowed
with broad, tropical foliage, it is not un-
usual to see from twenty to fifty large
melons, aggregating twenty or thirty
pounds in weight, on a plant not a year
old. The yield of fruit may fairly'be
called wonderful, for the size and weight
of the melons are out of proportion to
the size of the tree.
I have some trees near my house which
are not yet twelve months from the seed,
yet they are nearly six feet high, and so
heavily laden with fruit that I often
wonder how they can stand up under
their burden. The pawpaw begins to
bloom when less than six months old and
twelve inches in height, and seems to be
in perpetual fruit or flower afterwards.
New crowns, which resemble the heads
of celery, are constantly forming on the
trees, and as fast as they become leaf
stalks they spread out, and others take
their place. These crowns and the size
and rich hues of the foliage give the
trees a palm-like appearance, which
seems the more vivid when one beholds
the clusters of melons grouped around
the trunks. All the leaf stalks curve
gracefully upward, and thus form a
dense mass of foliage. The fruit has a
pleasant flavor, being very much like
that of a muskmelon, and may be eaten
raw, cooked with sugar and made into a
consistency resembling apple pie, or it
may be used as a salad. It seems, in
fact, to be able to fi 1 the place of several
kinds of fruit and vegetables, and for
this reason it must have an important
future before it. Wien the residents of
northern cities become fully acquainted
with the merits of the fruit there ought
to be a good demand for it, and if there
is, Florida will have a monopoly of the
trade, as the tree thrives only in the
southern section of the State, and even
there is safe only in places protected
from heavy frosts. The tree is an al-
most constant bearer, fruit being found
on it in all stages of growth. from the
tiniest to one weighing two or more
pounds. While the tree will grow and

School officers, teachers, and pupils of
the public schools are taking a lively in-
ferest in the Atlanta exposition, and an
exhibit will be made of which the whole
State may feel proud. The public schools
of Pensacola were awarded a diploma at
the World's Fair, and the work: sent by
them was highly commended by all who
saw it. County Superintendent N. B.
Cook of this county has issued a circu-

calling their attention to the importance
of making a creditable exhibit at At-
lanta. He suggests that an exhibit be
made of the actual school work of the
pupils during school hours, and in ac-
cordance with the curriculum in use.
The superintendent is having blanks
printed covering all the curriculum to
be used in the written examinations of
pupils in each grade, and these blanks
will storm a part of the exhibit.

Transpthi g s t Trees.
Among all the tre",native and foreign,
that planters have to do with, there' are
none so difficult to transplant as the
various kinds of nut trees, particularly
hickories and walnuts. The trouble
comes from the few roots these trees
make when growing in a natural way.
There is but oae long tap-root to a plant
at first, and but few others are made at
any time if undisturbed. It is really
amusing to see the astonishment of
those not accustomed to it, when a two
or three-year-old hickory is dug up.
The top will not be over one foot or so
in height, while the root will be about
three feet. If it were but a question of
planting little seedlings like these, there
would be no trouble about it. But, in
many parts of the country, forests in
which hipkories are found are common.
In them are many trees of from ten to
fifteen feet in height, which would be
valuable to have no one's place, where
it possible to remove them. While not
possible to take them at once, there is
no trouble about it if prepared for
removal ayear or two in.advance. Such
trees must be root pruned where they
stanl, doing the work a year at least,
sometimes longer, in advance. As not
only hickories, but black walnuts and
man' other trees may be treated in the
same way under sim ilar circumstances.
]will explain the method of root-pruning.
It will be understood that the pruning
done to produce more roots, so that
ransplanting' may be safely accom-
plished. Supposing the tree to be a
shelbark hickory of about ten feet in
height, and standing where it has not
been crowded, it will have a stem of
about two inches in diameter, and 8
spreading branches three to four feet in I
length. I would dig a trench around It ]
about three feet in diameter, going down e
deep enough to sever what large roots
are met -with. After getting down to t
about two feet or a little deeper, work
under the tree, and out off the tap root. h
A sharp spade will cut good enough, V
then the trench is to be filled in; use
soil with well decayed manure in it is t
obtainable, otherwise any good soil will t
suffice. This work may be done in the f
fall before the'ground freezes, or early 0
in spring, before the leaves appear. I i
prefer the fall. When the top is to be a
pruned, any branches lower than may t
be desirable should be out away entirely. c
The rest should be out in two-thirds, v
but do not cut off the top. This com- t
pletes the work. Nut trees treated in a
this way may be transplanted the follow- o
Ing fall, but it is better to leave them to t
have two summers' growth afterwards. b
A trence a foot wider than before will
generally catch the most of the new tv
-rpots when digging up thei.ree. 1 g

Ut1Wd ie,
having been cut away
t happen often, as the
pruning o e top compensates largely
for the loss of roots. When the tree
thrives after the treatment, a great lot
of small roots are made, which make
transplanting quite safe..
The shelbark is the most valuable of
all hickories for its nuts, and the Western
shelbark, :Carya sulcata, the next, for
the Northern states. In the Southern
and South-western states, the pecan
takes the-lead, and even in Pennsylvania
it can be grown. The Western shelbark,
referred to above, is not nearly as wel
known as it should be in the Eastern
states. Its nut is of monstrous size, and
its "meat" is abundant. This one is
a often met with in the markets of St.
The blackwalnut, while not an easy
tree to transplant, is not so difficult a
one as the hickory. The same can be
said of the English or Madeira nut.
the latter nut "is not hardy enough for
colder states than New York. I have
seen them flourishing in the vicinity of
Long Island sound, and near the sea in
Connecticut they thrive, but they will
not succeed in the inland states in the
same latitude.-Joseph Meehan, in- teh
Prairie Farmer.

Banana Culture.
When the sun came up the morning
after Black Friday. we looked at a patch
of six hundred or -more bananas- of the
dwarf variety and said good-bye to
banana culture in the sand hills, and a
feeling of gladness ran through the scene
of gloom as we thought that no encour-*
agement of great extent had been given
correspondents as to their successful
culture here.
A few days passed, and then the prun-
ing knife was brought into action, as
all the leaves and the upper growth of
each plant told the story of the great
frost. But, cutting down about one-
third of the way from the top of the
plant, our eyes were gladdened by the
siaht of the little green leaf, sound and
fresh, working its way up through the
stalk to the sunlight and the air.
So they were not dead, aftef all; only
crippled, and quick to show that there
was strong life in them. And each day
the new Iraf shot out and upward a half
inch or so.
So it seems to be proven that the
banana will stand ten degrees of frost..
and survive. We shall loose a crop this
season, but look for one next year.
Thus there is at least an emerald lin-
ing to the umber cloud resting ovet
banana culture in the sand hills.
The banana tradeof the United States
is enormous. For the' ten months end-
Ing October 31, 1892, the imports of this
fruit were valued at $4,503,490, while
the imports of lemons were valued at
$4.039,437: oranges 81,053,549, and all
fruits together, fresh and dried (except
bananas) 'only amounted to 87,801,292.
Thus, the bananas. were worth four
times as much as the oranges and con-
stituted over half the fruit imports of

Mn ance was there over
six "hands," from six to eight "fin-.
gers" on each.
A neighbor of ours, on another lake
near by. had one bunch with one hun-
dred and over on it, we believe, and, at
the time of the visitation, had a num-
ber of plants with large bunches of fruit
near the ripening point.
We have decided to move all our
plants (now increased to nearly a thous-
and, with the young suckers, in all
stages of growth) to a new plantation on
low ground where the water is likely'to
seep to the roots for at least six months
of the growing season. Here they will
have, also, a stronger soil, with some
muck in it. Mulching and good doses
of cotton seed meal ought to bring a
crop in 1896 that will settle the question
as to whether the banana, as a commer-
cial product, can be successfully grown
in the lake region. For home use there
is no doubt of it and every one should
grow a few of the dwarf variety in the
home garden.-W. E. Pabor in Pine-

Drying and Packing 'igs.
We extract the following on drying
and pi eking figs from an address deliv-
ered before the California Horticultural
Society by Mr. D. Sherman.
Previous to this season, we followed
the advise of growers generally in hand-
picking the fruit. Our ideal fig is one
picked from the tree as soon as it is
ready to drop by a jar or when it has
ceased to derive any nourishment from
the tree, the fig being in a shriveled
state. In practice'it is yet to be proved
the best method. We have been grati-
fied with this season's result, viz, about
one-half gathered from tree. the other
half picked from the ground. If all the
fruit would drop of its own accord with-
in a seasonable time, we would not pick
a bg from the tree; but as many hang
until they become worthless, it appears
to be necessary to hand-pick them.
The fruit from the ground is rich in
sugar and flavor, though inclined to
toughness; this, however, is overcome
by manipulation.
The fallen fruit may be put into bas-
kets of any depth; not so that from the
tree, as more care must be used, lest it
be injured.
After spreading on trays, which can
be done rapidly, we subject to a sulphur
bath for a few minutes only. 1Too much
sulphur destroys the richness and sweet-
ness. From the sulphur-house the trays
are to be taken to the hottest corner of
the ranch, inclining them toward the
sun. Later in the season a concentration
of the sun's rays applied to the fruit
may be pr. ctical. After remaining in
the sun from two to four hours, we turn
them by placing an empty tray over the
figs, having a man at each end, who
quickly invert them. The pressing of
the two trays together prevents the fruit
from rolling. A second turning may be
desirable, though we have not considered
it essential.
When sufficiently dry, place in sweat-
boxes which should be carefully watched

edient of panood, especially of pot-
,ash,I manured it heavily; one ton kafnit,
800 pounds cotton seed meal and 800
pounds acid phosphate per acre. About
three-fourths of this was sown broad-
cast and well harrowed in before plant-
ing, except 300 pounds of the cotton seed
meal which was applied in drill. Half
the remainder was applied as a top dress-
ing over the plants the following No-
vember and what was left sov n likewise
the following March. ,In using heavy
quantities of fertilizers like this as a top
dressing I scatter it over the whole field,
middles as well as beds. What falls on
the plants will do no harm provided it
is applied only in winter while the plants
are in a dormant state.
Now for the results. My plants made
a quick and magnificent growth. I
never saw finer or more vigorous ones.
The wags quit laughing before June was
out. Although the summer was dry
they maintained a healthy condition
and grew till cold weather set in.
The next spring that field was the
earliest to bloom out and the earliest to
ripen of any field that I had. The
berries were large and well colored and
sold as well as any that grew that year.
The yield, while not as heavy as that on
some of my richer lots, which had been
heavily manured for years, was a large
one and paid well.
Since then the field has kept up and
even increased its yield. But I have
fed it liberally, especially with potash
manures, kainit and muriate of potash,
When heavy yearly applications are
made it is better to use, say, 600 pounds
kainit, and 400 to 600 pounds of muriate
of potash.
The ammonia in cotton seed meal or
in nitrate of soda gives a fine plant
growth. The phosphoric acid in acid
phosphate or dissolved bone aids the
plant growth and enters in a consid-
erable degree in the formation of the
fruit. The potash in kainit or muriate
of potash while promoting plant growth
enters in a very large degree indeed in
the making of the fruit or berry.
Stable manure on any rich fresh land
will make as firm plant growth as one
can wish to see; and after, very good
crops of berries can be grown thus. But
heavy crops of the finest berries or fruit
of any kind can be grown oply when the
great desideratum, potash, is supplied in
quantities commensurate with the de-
mand; and yearly heavy cropping calls
for a yearly heavy supply, if there is to
be no falling off in yield.

good accompaniment. Codfish is good
boiled, but it should be well soaked out
and be allowed to simmer for two or

it make a fine addition.

Our Breads,.
Especial care should be given to our
breads in Florida, where.so much of it-
is needed to form our food, and every
woman should see to it that her family
receives the best kind that it is possible
to procure. It will be conceded by one
and all that homemade breads are pur-
est. First among the list being the old
fashioned salt rising bread. To-makeit
put a pint of water at a temperature of
about 90 degrees (be sure it is not too
.warm) in a perfectly clean bowl and stir
up a thick batter, adding only a tea-
spoonful of salt and beating thoroughly.
Set the batter in a pan of warm water
to secure uniformity of temperature,
and in from two to four hours it will be-
gin to rise. The rising will be much
more certain if coarse flour or "shorts"
are used instead of fine flour. When the
rising is nearly light enough measure a
pint of milk and a pint of boiling water,
mix the sponge in the bread pan and
when it has become light enough stir in
the rising: The 'sponge will be light
enough in from two to four hours if
placed in a proper temperature. It re-
quires less kneading than yeast raised
dough. It should be made oftener, as it
dries faster than bread made by other
methods. I
Then follows corn bread, which is
healthful and appetizing. One of the
secrets of successfully made corn bread
is in having the oven exactly the right
temperature-neither too hot nor too
cold-too warm preferable to too little
Then another help toward securing light,
flaky bread is to stir in about two table
spoonfuls of boiling lard, just before
turning into the pan for the oven. And
still another secret-you will find that an
old fashioned iron skillet will produce
better bread than at in pan. It retains
the heat to a greater degree than tin,
and the bread seems much better baked
in one.

Turning again to John Ruskin for a
topic, says a writer in one or our valued
exchanges, she gives some valuable hints
on books. She spys: "I would urge upon

In Cuba there is a plantation of over
two million, which employs over fifteen
hundred men during crop time
A recent report by Consul Peterson of
Tegucigalpa, on banana .raising in Hon-
duras, says that within the last few
years the business there has grown to
vast proportions. La Ceiba, located be-
tween Puerto Cortez and Trixillo, has
become one of the most important ports
of the country, solely through the
banana trade which finds its outlet there
for the United States.
The writer of this article was along
the coast of Honduras about three years
ago and watched with interest the
methods of obtaining and shipping the
great bunches of green fruit. No ripe
fruit is, of course, exported; it is gener-
ally fed to cows. In that purely tropical
country a sucker will fruit in less than
a year.
The people of this country do not yet
know how to use the banana, says the
Scientific Cyclopedia. In the tropical
climates, where the banana furnishes
the principal article of diet, the inhab-
itants have found numerous methods of
utilizing the delicious fruit, which ren-
ders it at once nutritious and ,palatable.
They boil it, they bake it as we do sweet
potatoes, they peel it, out it into slices,1
and fry it in batter, they mash it
into a paste and dry it in the sun as we
do apples and peaches; they make it
nto puddings, pies, dumplings, comfits
and preserves, and even smother it in
sugar until it is candied fruit.
But we need not go to Honduras or
even Cuba to grow bananas. They have
been, and are still, grown in California,
to some extent, in Louisiana and in
Florida. Upon the Keys, on the Caloos-
ahatchee river to the. south cf us and
even as far north as Sanford we read of I
banana proves, but we incline to the be-
lief that the counties north of us are
not safe for the successful cultivation
of this fruit. A few years ago, near
Sanford, one-third of an acre yielded e
$600 worth of fruit, though this must
have been an exceptional patch. As, how-
ever, planted 6 x 6 feet over 1,200 can be 0
grown on an acre, it is easily to be seen t
that if any fair sized bunch showing 50
and upward "fingers" can command
half a dollar, the business can be made
very profitable. s
We were in a fair way of determining, h
this season, whether they couldlbe raised f
to profit in our sand hill country, but the f(

and on the level of water. Two rows I
that were submerged during two months as

ter than the two rows just above them, y
and these last better than the two s(
other rows higher up. The more mois- as

imbibed something of the wisdom and
the feeling of the writer.
And this, it seems to me, is the best
work that a book can do. You know
that association with people who are
wise and good makes you have wisdom
and righteousness-so the constant read-
Ing of good books ennobles the reader.
Now you cannot always find in your
immediate neighborhood those who are
wise and good-more's the pity!-but
you can have about you the writings of
intelligent and honorable men ahn women
-and of these writings they them-
selves would say:
"This is the best of me; for the rest I
ate and drank and slept and loved and
hated, like another; my life was like a
vapor and is not, but this I saw and
knew; this, if anything of mine, is
worth your memory."
A home without books is like a
body without a souk Young men and
women when they marry, should bring
into the new home the treasures of the
past and every year add some new vol-
ume to the book shelf to keep thought
and conversation alive. Every maiden
should consider the few books that she
possesses the most important part of her
wedding outfit, as they are the proof
thAt her maiden days have not been
spent in idleness or merely in physical
labor, but that her mind has been active
and that she brings into her new home a
mind and heart alive to what is true
and good. -Such a girl, intelligent,
thoughtful, gentle, will be the truest
.wife and the noblest mother. In health
and in sickness, in joy and in sorrow
she will know where to turn for comfort
and pleasure. Her home will be cheer-
ful and orderly and the demons of fret-
fulness and worry will flee before the
angels of peace and wisdom that come
at her call

Little Picture frames.
These are made by cutting from heavy
cardboard six heart-shaped pieces about
eight inches in the widest part In these
cut ovals large enough to fit the photo-
graph. Cut fine linen to cover the card-
boards, and on the face of each em-
broider forget-me-nots. Cover all the
boards. Cut a s'rip of pale blue ribbon
the necessary length and attach to the
back of the three frames which have
been made by overhanding the hearts
together, leaving a slit at one side in
which to insert the picture. They must
hang ope below the other. At the upper
end of the ribbon tie a large bow of the
ribbon and sew a small ring at the back
of the bow.

The many shell walks ordered by the
city fathers of St. Petersburg -have
created -a corner in the shell market,
that cannot be broken unless sail boats
come to the rescue by bringing them
from the numerous mounds up and down
and across Tampa Bay. The shell
mounds in and around St. Petersburg
are all in the hands of private parties,
who want hiy nrince fon their shll hut

that the less drying the better, provided
they are in condition to keep.
After the sweating stage, they can be
be at once processed, or dipped in boil-
ing water, to kill all insect germs, and
stored for months if desirable. Covered
boxes or bins may be used.
However, the sooner they can be
placed on the market the better, so that
they may start the trade before the new
Asiatic crop arrives and supplies the
holiday trade.
The processing and packing appear to
be another industry apart from the
growing, but quite within the province
of the producer.
Take the figs from bins or boxes; dip
into boiling, very thin syrup (made of
water, a little white sugar, and glycer-
ine), or in salt, boiling water. We are
using the former solution. Our aim is
not to match the Smyrna product, but
to place on the market our fig in such
package and under such treatment as the
public prefer; hence we await the verdict
of the people. We sometimes before the
syruping run the figs through rubber
rollers, which helps in reducing the
toughness, apparently thinning the skin.
This makes it easier and quicker for the
packers. While the figs are yet warm
from the syrup, the thumbing and pack-
ing may begin. There should be three
grades. The first is carefully packed in
molds and pressed, remaining under
pressure until the shape is fixed, when
they may be taken from the forms,
wrapped in paraffine paper, and placed !
In cartoons, or as bricks of figs in boxet 1
of ten or twenty pounds. A round tin l
box makes a neat and attractive pack-
age. so also does the cartoon, The sec-
ond grade should be packed in larger '
boxes, say ten to twenty pounds each. j

Fruit Growing on Worn Out Land.
A man should plant his fruit and
everything else on the very best soil he s
can and then manure as highly as he fi
can, using judgment and discrimination
of course. I write the following merely h
o show what can be done when one is
driven to use very poor land. k
Some years ago wishing to consider- fl
ably extend my strawberry acreage and si
having no other land convenient I was o
forced to make use of some notorious p
or its poverty. Farming on it made the N
happy tenant such a butt for all the B
rags of the neighborhood that it had h
ome to pass that no one would cultivate
t. It was jocosely affirmed that it was cl
o poor and weak that the effort to v4
prout a pea made it grunt. it
Some of this land I sowed in peas for a st
ear before planting in strawberries, w
oon after plowing well and manuring hi
s follows. I put in strawberries at
ncee. There was considerable diversity th
f soil, varying from extreme sandiness, ea
through "crawfish" pipe clay to a little ,th
tiff red clay in places. th

The monthly mean rainfall, 1.13

Jacksonville. FMa.. January 15, 1895.

From the Florida Agr culturist.
To sum up the situation in brief, and
yet with the least possible measure of
gloom or complaining, there is no escap-
ing the conclusion that fruit and vege-
table growing in Florida is attended
with much of discouragement. Twice
in less than ten years has the frost de-
stroyed about all our garden crops and
well nigh half the orange trees.
Hundreds of thousands of boxes of
choice fruit have been frozen solid on
the trees and the best of efforts to avoid
such a calamity are seemingly useless.
In view of these facts, Mr. Editor, "are
we not called upon to carefully consider
whether some other line or lines of hus-
bandry shotild not receive our foremost
attention 9
it is true we may look. upon these
disasters- in the light of lessons and
gather useful knowledge therefrom. We
may count the growing of oranges, of
pineapples, of garden truck as a matter
of experiment and seek to console our-
selves in this way. However we may
choose to look at the matter, the fact
still remains that this whole business is
very discouraging. It is somewhat as
if we expended a dollar to get eighty
cents worth of products.
Now, in all sober reason how long
shall we pursue this game of chance and
take the risks to get a dollar back for
the dollar necessarily first expended ?
Only three days ago I met an acquaint-
ance groaning inwardly about how he
should meet his fertilizer bill due in a
few weeks, his crops nearly all destroyed
and they looked so promising up to the
time of the frost coming. This man
has a very good, little farm; is very in
dustrious, sober, prudent and skillful,
yet in good season, can only meet his
necessary expenses.
His inquiries of, What shall I do?
What can I do ? were painful to me; for
well did I know be had done his best
and was completely discouraged.
Having traveled over the same road a
little time ahead, I could understand
fully just how he felt and could only
answer him by saying, Be of good cour-
age and do not despair.

Fish, Flsah and Fowl
Boston Chicken pie.-Out up two
chickens into small pieces, as for frying;
cover the bottom of the pie dish with a
thin paste, over which place pars-
ley, pepper and salt, and a little
white sauce; place the pieces of chicken
in neat order, then add some very thinly
shaved slices of boiled ham, and fill each
cavity with quarters of hard-boiled eggs.
Repeat the seasoning and the sauce:
cover the pie with puff paste, egg it over
with a paste brush, and bake for one
hour and a half. Veal gravy will do in-
stead of white sauce, if preferred.
Mince with Poached Eggs.-Cover a
finely hashed beef stew, when it is placed
on the platter to serve, with poached eggs,
neatly turned out of the pan. This
makes as pretty a luncheon dish as one
for breakfast.
Beefsteak Pie.-Cut, a two-pound
round steak, one kidney and one pound
of fresh pork into large dice, and fry
them quickly over a brisk fire, so as to
brown them before they are half done
Wheti they have been fried enough, pour
off nearly all the grease and shake a
tablespoonful of flour into the gravy, stir
this over the fire for one minute and
then add two tablespoonfuls of catsup
and a pint of water; stir the whole over a
the fire and keep it boiling for ten min-
utes. Meanwhile fill the pie with the l
pieces of beefsteak, kidney and pork: r
pour the sauce over it, cover with good f
paste in the usual way and bake for an t
hour and a half. a
Roast Beef Hash Browned.-Cut some
nice pieces of roast beef from Sunday's t
oint, put them in a chopping bowl and f
chop until quite fine, then add cold t'
boiled potatoes that have been boiled 0
with their skins on, season with salt and m
black pepper and just a pinch of red n
pepper, and chop the potatoes and sea- a
onings in with the meat till all are ver w
tne. Melt some well-clarified beef drip- w
pings in a frying pan, and when very t
lot put the hashed beef and potatoes in, 8s
our over a little hot water from the tea- w
kettle, and let the hash cook for ten or f
fteen minutes, stirring almost con- p]
tantly; at the end of this time take it
ut of the frying pan and put it in a a
latter that will stand the heat well. hi
lake the hash up in a mound shape. B
rown the top of the hash with a red- ft
ot iron. b(
Baked Hadd6ck.-Thoroughly dry and g(
ean the haddock, fill the inside with
eal stuffing, sew it up, curl the tail into to
s mouth. Brush it over with egg and in
rew bread crumbs over it. Set it in a
arm oven to bake for about half an ar

The result of the analytical work, the
report states, establishes the fact that
the cassava is a plant of high economic
value. The fields on which it ts-oulti-
vated should be kept free from all weeds
and the surface of the soil well stirred.
The roots should be left in the ground
until needed for use, whether for food,
starch, or glucose, and should not be al-
lowed to grow more than two seasons.
The crop can best be harvested between
October and May. In ordinary seasons,
with ordinary treatment, the crop will
average from four to seven tens per acre.
From his extended investigations Chem-
ist Wiley of the department, who com-
piled the report, draws the following
"When properly manufactured, cas-
sava will give from 20 to 25 per cent of
the weight of the fresh root in starch of
high grade. The starch,which is nearly
in a pure state, does not require chem-
icals in its manufacture, and in its phys- -
ical properties it resembles the starch
of maize, for which it can always be
substituted. Glucose and an excellent
article of tapioca can be prepared from
the cassava starch. The plant furnishes
an excellent human and cattle food,defi-
cient, however, in nitrogen."

From the Florida AgricaltarieS.

Dr. J. P. Wall publishes the follow-
ing in the Tampa Tribune:
"Would it not be favorable for the or-
ange growers of Florida to make some
arrangements for insuring the orange
crop against damage or destruction by
cold freezing? By a small outlay an-
nually in the way of insurance, it seems
to me that the excessive loss sustained
by such freezes as that of January, 1886,
and the recent one of the 29th of Decem-
ber might be avoided or very materially
mitigated. I beg to offer the suggestion
as a subject for consideration by those
interested, especially the Florida Fruit
Exchange and Fruit Growers' Associa-
Why not, indeed. In the west they
have companies, and good ones, too,who
insure the farmers against loss of crop,
by drouths or cyclones, and the com-
panies pay the losses,and are not classed
as wild cats.
Companies organized on this plan es.
timate the amount of losi likely to occur
during a certain number of years, and
upon this base the premium. As Flor-
ida has lost two crops-in part, during
the past ten years it will be seen that the
premium would necessarily be high,
perhaps higher than the growers would
feel disposed to pay. Still for the first
few years following a freeze an orange
insurance company would do a large
business. It is likely that after a few
years of open winters the growers would
feel courageous enough to carry their
own risk and the business of the com-
panies would dwindle away, until an-
other c t r


During the first twenty-six days of the
month the temperature, which was in
excess at the beginning of December,
continued toaccumulate almost uninter-
ruptedly. On the 27th a cold wave be-
gan to be felt which increased in sever-
ity until the 29th on which date the
lowest temperature since the beginning
of observations by the Weather Bureau
were recorded, the average minimum
for the State being on that date about
five degrees lower than any previously
registered. At Jacksonville, on the
morning of the 29th the temperature
'ell to 14; 1.3 degrees lower than during
the memorable freeze of January 12, 1886,
causing ice 24 inches thick to form in
exposed places. The temperature fell
o 18 as far south as Titusville on the
29th. This severe freeze practically de-
troyed nearly all that part of the orange
crop remaining ungathered, estimated
,t between two and three million boxes,
and did, it is teared, great damage to
range groves and fruit trees of all kinds.
rhe mercury fell to 24 at Jupiter and
t is said damaged the pineapple in-
erests of that section very seriously.
The most marked warm period of the
nonth centered about the llth, on
which date the majority of stations
oted their highest temperatures.
The mean temperature for the month,
0.4 degrees, is nearly half a degree
higher than the normal] for Florida for
December The highest temperature E
recorded for the month was 86 at Kis- a
mmee and Plant City on the llth; f
ie lowest, 12 at Tallahassee on the
)th; monthly range for the State, 74
degrees. Greatest local monthly range, n
at Archer; the least, 37 at Key West. n
reatest local daily range, 44 at Archer s

potatoes, beans etc., may be tried with"
good show for success.
But, viewed as a country -suited for
early vegetables and citrus fruits from
which to obtain a livelihood,lt is too un-
certain for a reasonable dependence.
Repeated efforts have been made to pre-
serve oranges so that the fruit could be
gathered early In December, but up to
the present time no well-known means of
preservation has been discovered which
is deemed worthy of general adoption.
Pineapple covering has been resorted to
and is a signal failure upon all sqch oc-
casions. '.
Vegetable growing has no remedy but
replanting, and replanting after Jan.1 is
not far away from a delusion.
However uninviting may seem the
idea of growing citrus fruits or vege-
tables, or pines for shipment to North-
ern markets, there is no question as to
the possibility of their being grown here
for home use, with other useful home
required products.
As a home land,;Florida has not really
suffered very much by this late frost,
for the best home lands in the world are
where sharp frosts often come. But
our efforts to pose as a sort of tropical
paradise is a complete failure.
Let us turn over a new leaf and dis-
miss the idea that our State is favored
above all her sister states. We may be
freer from frosts, we may be.free from
now and have less of chilling storms;
we may have a shorter winter time and
more of mild weather; we may have a
more even temperature and more clear
kies than any of our sister states, but
while reaping some advantage over them
we still have chilly winds and hard
torms and frosts and flooding rains and
Irouths and failure of crops occasion-
lly, and disappointments frequently.
Alluring prospects are only too often
eceptive in point of reality:and the sam-
iary of all here written is, in brief. dis-
ouraging is the look today. But of all
;he grand ensigns of the past none other
vords equal those uttered to Moses, the
leader of the hosts of Israel, standing on
he shoreof theRed sea,"Be of good
courage and go forward!" And so today
et us cheer one the other and again
peak forth those words so wondrously

Pensacola News.
It is impossible to mieasre tihe
n benefit to the South which will re-
', sult from tile Atlanta exposition:.
s Tl'e preparation of this important
affair will develop interest in our
n section which would have lain latent
e probably for years. Among the in-
Steresting correspondence which Hon.
SW. D. Chipley's efforts have enlisted
Scores tile letter which we are per-
0 emitted to copy below. If one-tenth
of what Mr. Rotzien claims ca:n be
established (and we have no doubt
n of his ability to do what he says)
West Florida will have been ben-
' efited hundreds of thousands of dol-
g lars. Every citizen will be inter-
ested in reading the following letter.
We have examined the buckskin
Referred to in Mr. Rotzien's letter and

Hon. W. D. Chipley, Pensacola, Fla.
DEA SIR:--I see by the papers
That you will make an exhibit of the
products of West Florida at Atlanta,
Ga. I would like to ask you if tlhe
saw palmetto might be included, as
I have spent a good deal of time for
Sthe last three years experimenting
with it in regard to its various uses
and value. I now can say that I
know a good deal, about it, and I
\ill say that it is worth now to tlhe
state more than all the pine, and
even oranges included. I make a
fiber from the leaf for matresses.
It has no equal. I have made over
150 mattresses in two years. The
Iroot I use or brushes, and they are
Sthe best flesh and bath bruheos
made. Besides it contains more
t tannin to tan leather than oak ^ark.
See sample of deer skin, tanned in
fifteen days. The bLrries are valua-
ble for medicine 'Florida is about:
I the only state-that ships tons of the
I berries. Two years ago I shipped
7,000 po'inds at 5 to 91 cents a
1Wh\i.t I want to call yaur attention
to is tl: e mattresses. As I an a poor
Inlal I would like soil.e one to helpi
mne on, and I cannot see wh' the ex-
position woult not be a giod place
to show them and the fiber I know
there is a big thing in it, for the fiber
i- far better in every respect than
the Florida moss. I would like to
talk to you on this subl,!oct, etc
What assistance can yon give ',e lor
an exhibit? I can get satmples, etc.,
Ind possibly know more about the
saw palmetto and its value than any
man in West Floriaa. Now what
we want is a papvr mill in the state
to. make paper from the palmetto.
One acre will produce from $50 to,
$500 a year. 1 have sold the berries
for $26.70 that I gathered on !ess
than o ne-sixteenth of an acre, and I
have $9.90 worth ot brushes from
one root, and any palmpetto land will
make two tone of fiber twice a year
at there: cents a pound. But wliat
we want here at St. Andrews is a
railroad, so we cen ship north.
Please let me know at once whtll
you think of this, and what you cal
do for me to help me. I consider it
the most important to this country
in the future, as it is always on hand.
It requires no capital to get the mate-
rial, as it does fish, lumber and fruits.
Hoping to hear from you soon,

Yours respectfully,
[Mr. Rotzien has had extensive
experience in the various uses to
which palmetto can be put while lhe
has been living at the bay, and what
lie has learned is of value and had
he the means to establish a factory
there is no doubt that the enterprise
would be a profitable one. But this is
only one feature of the unbounded
wealth of this favored section, which
only needs capital and talent to make
profitable. and its exposition at At-
lanta may at ract b,th.-En.]

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 accoiiip,likr this the Association proposes to Sell Lands in tractsof Two-
and-a-hlfl aiin FivoAcres to such parties only as will improve them by. the
Erection of Houses. Fences and such Permanent Improvements as will enhance the
value of each tract so disposed of, and particularly to
Plant them out in Trees, Plants and Vines,
S To the end'that in the shortest practicable time every such tract shall be a
Source of Revenue to its Owner.
The first question wh;ch will naturally be asked will be: "Is this Asso-
ciation reliable"? And the answer to it is: Any person employing the Association
to nimke improvements may deposit an approximate payment of the estimated cost of
the same with any responsible business man or firm doing business on the Bay or in
Bank at their own home to be paid over only when the Association shall satisfacto-
rily show that the improvements have been made according to agreement.
l'he Association will not only improve and plant, but watch and care for
all property entrusted to its keeping, guarding against forest fires, dishonest pilferers
or damnnges from any cause possible to be prevented.
", Front 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 nearing may be named pears, apricots,
nectarines, pluins, prunes, mulberries, olives, Japan persimmons almonds English
walnuts, Japai. chestnuts, pecans, and m.any other varieties of fruits and nuts. which
Iare almost certain to flourish here; while oranges and citrus fruits, though not con-
sidered certain yieldlarge returns oftener than they miss.
The Secretary of the Assodiation will give particular attention to an-
swering letters of inquiry, and the Buor will in its answers to correspondents an-
swer all questions asked it.
R E M 3-E M1 BE R, the A:-sociation Lands will be sold on Easy

Equal with the interest of those having- claims against the government is
that o INVENTORS, who often lose the benefit of valuable inventions because
of the incompetency or inattention of the attorneys employed to obtain their
patents. Too much care cannot be exercised in employing competent and reli-
able solicitors to procure patents, for the value cf a patent depends greatly, if
sot entirely, upon the care and skill of the attorney.
With the view of protecting inventors from worthless or careless attorneys,
and of seeing that inventions are well protected by valid patents, we have
retained counsel expert in patent practice, and therefore are prepared to
Obtain Patents in the United States and all Foreign
Countries, Conduct Interferences, Make Special
7-sxamnations, Proseoute Rejected Cases, Register
Trade-Marks and Copyrights, Render Opinions as
to Scope and Validity of Patents, Proseoute and
Defend Infringement SuitS, Eto., EBtc.
If you have an invention on hand send a sketch or photograph thereof, to-
gether with a brief description of the important features, and you will be at
once advised as to the best course to pursue. Models are seldom necessary. If
others are infringing on your rights, or if you are charged with infringement by
others, submit the matter to us for a reliable OPINION before acting on the

-Read the following opinion of one of the most prominent
American dealer who has sold hundreds of these wheels:
RICHMOND, VA., Oct. 2, 189.
Indiana Bicycle Company, Indianapolis, Ind.:
GBNTLEMBN-The Waverley Scorcher and Belle came to
hand yesterday. We are afraid you have semt us the high
priced wheel by mistake. You can't mea to tell us this
wheel retails for $85 ? We must say thatit is, without excep-
tion, the prettiest wheel we have ever seen, and, moreover
we have faith in it, although it weighs only b Ibs., for of all
Waverleys we have sold this year and last (and you know
that is a right good number), we have never had a single
frame nor or broken, either from accident or defect, and
that is more than we can say of any other wheel, however
high grade, so called, that we sell. We congratulate our-
selves every day that we are the Waverley agents.
Yours truly, WALTERL C. MxCIMB & Co.

We secure patents and to ilidlie
people to keep track of their bright
ideas we offer a prize of one hundred
dollars to lie paid on tile first of ev-
cry inonth to the person or persons
whe submits to us tile meet nmerito-
rious invention during the proceeding
month. WVe also advertise tile in-
yention free of charge in tlie National
SRecorder, a weekly newspaper pub-
lished iln Washington, D. C., woich
has an extensive circulation through-
ouit the United States, and is devoted
Sto tlie interests of inventors.
The idea of being able to invent
something strikes most people as be-
ing very difficult; this delusion tlie
company wilshes to) dispel. It is the
simple things and small inveiltions
that make the greatest amount of
money, and thle complex ones are
selloin profitable. Almost every-
body at some time or another con-
ceives an idea, which, if patented.
would probably Ie worth to him a
fortune. Unfortunately, such ideas
are usually dismissed without a
Thought. The simple inventions
like tile car window which could
easily be slid up and down without
breaking the passenger's back, the
sauce pan, the collar button, the lnut
lock, the bottle stopper, the sno-v
shovel, are things that almost every
Sone sees some way of improving uu-
on, and it is these kind of inventions
tlat bring the greatest returns to
tihe author.
Tie prize we offer will he paid at
the end of each month, whether the
application has been acted upon by
the Patent office or not. Every in-
ventor must apply for a patent oni
his invention through us, and wheth-
er he secures a patent or not, the in-
ventor will have a valuable potent.

The demand for a practical machine induced us in 1881, to turn
from the old style of stump pullers and we made and put the first practical
machine of this class on the market. We threw out all sawed timber
all common ironr,'all light pieces, chains, links, open hooks, springs, bolts.
straps, clamps, thimbles, splices, screws, gears and eccentrics, and at
done away vith all perceptible friction by reducing the number of pieces
the machine from 47 to 3, these being properly formed and proportione,
giving equal strength, making a stronger, more powerful, lighted
handier, cheaper, faster working and a more durable machine than
otherwise could be made, and to counteract the extreme prejnd;ce against
the name stump pullers; the new machine was called the Smith Grubber
