One of tle Union's. esi.- .
'-it will astonish the majorlty of the
people to learn 'that Florida, as an agril
Cultural State, will compare most favor]
ably with some of the finest recognized
agricultural States of the Union. Th4
pcrsslbilitlea in this, as In almost all other
fields In Florida. h-ave not even bden sqr-
nised. What can be done, what will be
durra, is purely a matter of speculation.,
Tnat the possibilities and probabilities
are all in 'the State has been domon-1
strated only partially by results already'
accomplished, as can be plainly seen tl|
lhe following reports:
In 1900 the proceeds of field crops thatt
were reported as sold amounted to 54-,
173.54-7: the corn produced brought in S2,-,
43S.Vt2. and corn Is not the best crop, nor;
is the land made "to produce what it 1q
easily capable of doing; only what Is
thought to be needed Is planted, and gen-
erally without fertilization or careful
cultivation; other- cops are more valu-I
able.
The vegetable ibp- fon 1900 netht. the
growers almost 51.000.000 (l856,306 was re,
ported: this does not include local maxr-
ket sales). Oranges, lemons and 'li eis
approximated 52,000,000, and other fruitfi
4aid the .growers about $700,000. The
cptual amount reported was $6491330. Oth-
&t farm products returned to the people
of the State $1,619,130. Live stock in the
State is *asmased on the Tax Collector's
iooks at 56.503,408, but this and all other
property in the Stale is assessed at about
orr-.tnird or its valuhie n cash.
ktlnes ind Ferests.
"The mises and forests of Florida paid
dn 190) over 35,000.000, of which naval
stores alone are credited with $3,274,430.
The i'alue of Florida's exports for.,1l900
was t2,813,40!. Her ports were entered
,by 2,597 vessels with a tonnage of 2,377',548,
and 2.043 vessels, 2,248,057 tonrage,
cleared from lier ports, taking in part has

"Florida has the largest deposit of high
grade phosphate rock, kaolin clay and
tuliers e*rth in the world. It also has'
large deposits of natural cement, and one.
considerable deposit of Iron; a bematite,
is known to exist, and there are indica-

of the State. but nqne of the latter have
ever been exploited. These are known,

tff-'boast a few big..-things, tbre.result of.
their own efforts. The big things of na-
ture are grand and awe Inspiring. The'
!big tthlngs of the Floridlan's production
are useful to his fellow man. and pronta-
ble, to himself. The first big thing, the
work at a Floridlan, that I want to call
your attention to is the manufacture of
artificial ite. To. Dr. John Gorrie of
Apalachicola, belongs the credit of discov-
ering- the process of cheaply producing
this blessing to humanity, and this is the
biggest 'thing, the work of man, that
Florida or any other State cah boast,- buc
.We have a few other things In which
odridlans lead. We have, says Dr.
Stoekbridgo. the director at the Govern-
ipent experiment station at Lake City,
'and a man who knows whereof he speaks,
