PLANT IS A PROPHET.

Predicts Great Things for Flor Florida.
ida. Florida. H. B. riant, president of the
Plane bystem, in an interview with
an Atlanta Constitution reporter,
says :
"The truth is, the orange groves
of centra Florida, which were well
taken care of, have suffered but
little from the cold wave. The
frost that killed many of the or orange
ange orange trees a year ago was the first
disastrous frost we have had in
that region of the state for thirty thirty-two
two thirty-two years. Thee will probably
not be another frost for many
years to come.
'But wi:h all this there will be
a fair crop of oranges, grown in
Florida this year. Of course, the
yield will not be shown on the
market as abundantly as it has
"been for a number of years past,
and, of course, the scarcity 01 or oranges
anges oranges in the market will make the
price go up to some degree, but at
the same time' there will not be
such x loss to the public as will be
naturally anticipated after all the
scare-crow stories that have been
published in the newspapers of the
northern market centers.
'There is one pleasing observa observation

Florida last year, and that is, that

the truck farms, rowing such
things as tomatoes, cabbage,
beans, and many such things,
which find a ready market in the
eastern and northwestern cities
Jong before there is the slightest
evidence of verdure in the rural
districts of those sections.
"I believe that this cold wave
will prove a blessing in disguise to
many of the farmers of Florida.

Written for the Witness.
"O mamma! mamma! just see
what Uncle Jack f?as given mt!
Now I can get that beautiful dell.
This just exactly makes the
amount, a dollar and a ha'f. Isn't
he just the best uncle? O I am i-o
glad I can get the dollie," and
Amy danced gleefully into the
room displaying to her mamma a
bright silver half dime, not very
much to be sure, but when it just
made up the amount that would
obtain the long coveted doll, it
seemed a good deal in the eyes of
the little girl. She had been striv striving
ing striving hard for the last three weeks
to save up money enough to buy
the fair-haired dollie at Miss Mims'
millinery store. The little milli milliner
ner milliner had promised to save it till
Christmas eve, and now the morn morning
ing morning of that day had arrived but the
little savings bank contained only
$1.45. Amy felt real blue over
the matter. "It's too bad," she
sighed, "to think it is such a little
too only 5 cents, but I can't get
it. I can't ask any of them for
any more money. Papa has given
me 25 cents already. Auntie gave
me 15 cents. Nurse paid me 10
cents for amusing baby one morn morning.
ing. morning. Mamma paid me ten for as

sorting her worsted colors. Aunk
Patsey gave me two fives for bring bringing
ing bringing chips to the kitchen from the
woodshed," and Amy proceeded
with pencil and paper to enumer enumerate
ate enumerate the various means by which
she had obtained the little sum,
but not one penny more could she
make it than $1 45.
It was a sore disappointment
after so much economy to have to
tell Miss Mims to dispose other otherwise
wise otherwise of the doll, and as she was
tearfully contemplating the situa situation
tion situation good-natured Uncle Jack
came and gave her the wished-for
amount.
Amy dropped it carefully into
the little tin bank. "I shall call
for the entire amount this evening,
Mr. Cashier' she said with an air
of satisfaction. "And let me see,
how shall I dress dollie. O yes, I
thinlcshe must have a pink dress
with big puff sleeves and a wide
lace collar." Mamma smiled at
the little girl's eagerness, but said
nothing, and Amy ran away to the
kitchen, from whence delicious
odors of every kind escaped.
Aunt Patsey was bustling about
the kitchen as busy as a bee. "Now
honey, ef you'll jes' take dat basket
and fotch me some chips from de
shed I gwine giv' you one of dese
here goosebury tarts jes' quick es
it gits done."
Amy picked up the basket to
comply and at the door met Took,
sey, "Tooksey, if you have time to
stay awhile come with me to the
woodshed to get the chips and I'll
divide the tart with you. Aunt
PatseyJX just cooking the most
good things for Christmas you
know cakes and pies and every everything,
thing, everything, and fat Mr. Gobler is in the
coop waiting to be decapitated
Papa said. That means to have
his head cut off, Tooksey," and
Amy looked very wise as she and
Tooksey proceeded to put the
chips into the big basket.
Tooksey was a poor, little half half-starved,
starved, half-starved, ill-treated colored child
of uncertain year?, for truly her
face looked much too old for her
size. Barefooted and half in rags
the little darkie presented a right
pitiful picture. So accustomed
was she to harsh treatment, a blow
upon the face or head, that if any

one raised a hand near her the
poor little creature would dodge
instinctively.
"I don't suppose you have much
Christmas at your house do you
Tooksey?" Amy asked sympathetically.

'No ma'am.
Luster, dough,
nuts, an' bile
make ?nncr
'Fore granny died
She gimme pea pea-'lasses
'lasses pea-'lasses candy, an'
cake in shape o'
hosses an' dogs," the child said en enthusiastically,
thusiastically, enthusiastically, then her counte countenance
nance countenance changed to utter sadness,
and with a deep sigh she added,
'but I don't t'ink I ever will hive
any more Chrismuses. Pears like
mammwwould be gladef I wus ter
die."
Amy determined that Tooksey
should have at least one more good
Christmas if a good dinner would
constitute it. The chips errand
accomplished and the tarts dis dispensed
pensed dispensed with, Tooksey said she
must be going, when lo! and be behold
hold behold to her utter dismay she dis discovered
covered discovered that the spol of thread
for which "mammy" had sent her
was gone? Where could she have
lost it? Amy helped in the dili diligent
gent diligent search in the kitchen and
shed. The basket of chips vas
overturned, but all to no avail.
Tooksey began to cry for she
knew what an unmerciful whip whipping
ping whipping awaited her.. "Oh, oh! oh!"
she wailed, "mammy will mos' kill
me 'bout loosin' dat fread, but I
mus' go home, if I stay any longer
lookin fur it she'll beat me; I mus'
go," and it was pitiful to see the
scared eyes and ashey little face.
"Never mind, Tooksey," said
Amy, "I've got some money of my
very own, and I'll give you 5 cents
and you can run back up town
quick and get some more thread."
The next minute Amy was up
stairs shaking vigorously at the
bank. Of course it was a great
sacrifice, but somehow Amy did
not feel half as bad when she told
Miss Mims she would not take the
doll as slie thought she would. It
is a lovely doll and I'd like awful
well to have it, but I don't mind
giving it up as bad as I thought I
would. I suppose it's because I
did something for some one else,
ntamma," she said after returning
from Miss Mims. "Yes, my child,"
mamma replied, "that is it. Our
Savior said, 'It is more blessed to
give than to receive,' and again,
When you give unto the least of
these my children ye do it unto
me,' "Anyway, mamma, I saved
poor little Tooksey of getting one
whipping," and Amy went away
happier than if she possessed the
beautiful doll.
But dear old Santa Claus must
have heard of thcD circumstances,
for when Christmas morning came
bright and clear, and Amy opened
her eyes, the first thing to greet
them was the doll, arrayed beauti beautiful
ful beautiful enough for a bride in lovely
pink surah and soft creamy lace.
"Why you darling!" she exclaimed,
"Mrs. Santa must have sat up all
night to dress you." After break breakfast
fast breakfast it was a very happy little girl
that tripped along the streets till
she reached the little hut in the
suburbs inhabited by Tooksey, and
when the basket she left was
opened and contents found to be a
plate of delightful dinner of turkey
and cake and pies, a big, rosy rosy-cheeked
cheeked rosy-cheeked apple and a golden orange,
a warm flannel dress, and shoes
and stockings, taken from Amy's
own wardrobe, it would be hard to
declare which was happier that
Christmas, Amy or Tooksey.
