MUCK AT THE MEADOWS
About twenty years ago Christian
Ax, of Baltimore, Md., a millionaire
tobacco manufacturer purchased the
Black Sink Prairie in Marion county,
Florida, and renamed it The Meadows.
There is about 10,000 acres in this
prairie, and like most of Florida
prairies it was covered with water
varying in depth from one to six feet.
Mr. Ax's scheme was to drain this
prairie by a system of drainage can canals,
als, canals, divide the land into small farms
and sell it to truckers as the soil of
the prairie was composed of muck ten
to fifteen feet deep. The scheme was
a plausible 'one, but after years ol
work and a fortune spent in digging
the canals it was found that there
was no outlet for the water, the
stream into which it was proposed to
drain the water being separated from
the prairie by a ridge, which if cut
through would let the water from the
stream into the t prairie, instead of
from the prairie into the stream. For
a time the water was pumped over
the 'ridge, but it being impossible to
provide a guarantee that this pump pumping
ing pumping would be continued indefinitely,
the whole scheme was abandoned.
I visited The Meadows a few weeks
ago and found that the muck was be being
