A ROMANTIC JOURNEY.
D. D. Rodgers, the well known
civil and mining engineer, return-
jed yesterday from a six weeks'
jaunt in the everglades.
He explored the gulf coast from
Myers and the Caloosahatchee
River down to Chockoliskee Bay
among the Ten Thousand Islands.
In their small boat the explorers
would go far into the interior up
little creeks not 10 feet wide and
16 to 20 deep, overtopped with the
mangrove and other salt water
tropical trees, forming a perfect
aisle, through which at times they
would have to cut their way with
an ax to let the boat through.
Mr. Rodgers said this morning,
when interviewed by the Star re reporter,
porter, reporter, that they left all signs of
frost behind them on the north
bank of the Caloosahatchee River.
Below that point grew all of the
most tender tropical fruits in great
He brought back, as mementos
of his visit, a section of the royal
palm, cut from the trunk of a giant
80 feet high; a leaf from the same
tree, 1 5 feet long; and a number of
ripe lemons, mangoes, guavas, etc.,
picked from the trees.
Mr. Rodgers showed the reporter
several beautiful orchids, and
young specimens of the royal palm
which were well rooted. He will
try to raise these plants.

UNITED STATES SENATOR.
The woods are full of men who
have the senatorial bee buzzing in
their bonnets. It is understood
that Senator Call will riot be re reelected
elected reelected in '97, and as the United
States Senatorship from Florida is
a fat office, it is but natural for our
professional politicians to want it.
We understand that -v Charles
Dougherty, of Volusia, thinks he is
just the man for the place. But
there is one very serious difficulty
in his way, namely: the people of
Florida don't want him. They tried
him once for four years in con
gress, and got enough of him.
There was a time in the history
of Florida when a sporting man
with an oily tongue could get a high
office, but that time has passed.
When we have such worthy men
in our midst as' Chief Justice Ma Ma-bry,
bry, Ma-bry, ex-Chief Justice Rainey, Col.
Chipley, Judge Hocker, Judge W.
S. Bullock; and many others whom
ve could mention, it is not at all
likely that our intelligent citizens
will turn aside from these and take
up a sporting character like Dough Dougherty
erty Dougherty "our Charlie"-! whose chief
characteristics are brass and an
aptitude for parliamentary wran wrangling,
gling, wrangling, and give him the highest of office
fice office in the gift of the state. We are
persuaded to believe better things
of our people. We want our next
United States Senator to be a

we ask, where can she need it more

We would dwell for a moment
upon the topmost round of the
higher educational ladder the ex

great impersonation of wisdom.
In this connection there comes to
us a thought of a sweet little poem
of Longfellow, in which he repre

by the fireside earnestly discussing
the respective merits of their fa favorite
