The Record has, from time to time,
pointed with a great deal of pride to the
careers of successful men in the South,
who first planted their hopes among the
Among the men who have played the
strongest part in the newer and greater
development of Florida none stand higher
than the subject of this sketch.
His record during this, his first term
in the Senate, both aside from and added
to his work as a public spirited citizen
and as a man of unimpeachable private
character, entitle him to the endorsement
of this people.
That this endorsement will he splendid-
ly given there now seems little doubt.
James P. Taliaferro was born at Or-
range Court House, Virginia, September
30, 1847, and spent his youth and young
manhood in his native State.
He is a descendant of Robert Taliaferro,
who came from England about the year
1650 and settled in Essex county, Virgin-
ia, and who was of the Blenheim branch
of what has since become a numerous
family. Mr. Taliaferro's father was Ed-
'mmnd Pendleton Taliaferro, a prominent
physician of Orange County, who devoted
his entire life to the duties of his profes-
sion in that vicinity.
Mr. Taliaferro was engaged in acquiring
his education in the noted school of Wil-
liam Dinwiddie at Greenwood, when the
war began, and left the school in 1864,
when only 17 years of age, to enlist in
the Confederate army, in which he served
until the close of the war. Returning to
his home after the surrender, he endeav-
ored to resume and complete his studies,
but the misfortunes of war had made
such changes in the condition of the fam-
ily that he decided to abandon his purpose
and enter at once upon the responsibili-
ties of manhood, in the hope of bettering
his own fortunes as well as those of his
SRemoval to a more promising field than
was then offered in his native State ap-
peared to be imperative, and young Talia-
ferro came to Florida, seeking such em-
ployment as might present itself, and
finding it, as many another adventurous
youth has done, at the very foot of the
industrial ladder. Possessing no capital
but health, hope and a sturdy determi-
nation to win, which has ever since been
one of his chief characteristics, he took
service as a lumber marker in a sawmill
-& common laborer, wearing the rough-
est of clothing and living on the coarsest
of fare. He "graduated" thence into a
Baker county logging camp, with little
improvement in his condition; but after
some years of faithful service for others,
he began to look out for himself. Having
become familiar with the lumber busi-
ness "from the ground up," he addressed
himself to the attainment of the high po-
sition therein which he soon achieved, and
er with some of Florida's bravest and
worthiest spirits, helping to bear the bur-
dens of the trial of democrats charged
with violations of republican election
laws; and on one occasion was fined in
contemptt for cheering in open court a
verdict of acquittal in one of those trials.
He served the democracy with unwearied

cess came to him as the due reward of
intelligent effort and upright dealing with
his fellowmen, and honors sought him.
He became the president of the First Nat-
ional Bank of Tampa, a member of the
Florida State Board of Health, and vice-
president of the C. B. Rogers Co. Un-

,lary significance. In the place of the
excitingg scenes of stubborn contest which
rad characterized similar previous occas-
'ons, there was a calm. quiet, yet deter-
mined eoimetmtraticn of political forces in
'tis direction which resulted in his elec-
tion on the first ballot, taken separately
n the :espective houses of legislature, on
the 18th of April, by a large majority, and
the formal declaration of a like result on
the following day in the joint session,
when he received 49 votes, a majority of
20 and a plurality of 22, of those present
Commenting ujn the event. the Times-
Union and Citizen of April 20, uttered the
following remarkable prophesy, which has
been so remarkably fulfilled:
"The whole past life of James P. Talia-
ferro stamps him as the antithesis of the
demagogue--a man of action rather than
speech. who will perform more than he
alares to promise: fair to his foes. loyal
to his friends, unmoved in defeat and
equal in victory a very rock in time of
trouble, but modest and quiet when suc-
cess is assured. The service he has done
left him with wide popularity because he
is not a brass hand campaigner; but the
whole State will soon know this worthy
son of Old Virginia. this citizen of Florida,
as Du"v! County knows and honors and
trusts nim absohltely."
A wide-awake and enthusiastic drum-
mer, who travels in Florida, after a chance
meeting with I. S.Senator Taliaferro on a
train, had the following unique "docu-
ment" printed at his own expense, and is
distributing thousands of copies through-
out the State:

Green cut bone serves as a highly ni-

of eggs and for the production of bone
in growing fowls, as well as serving to
assist in grinding the food, taking the
place of grit, and is readily accepted by
all classes of poultry. In fact, it is safe
to claim that there is nothing that can
be used as egg-producing food which
serves the purpose better than green bone.
its combination of qualities-nitrogen,
lime for egg-shells, cost, and adaptation to
all fowls and all ages-giving it a place
even higher than meat, which contains ni-

matter. Therefore, in preparing a diet
for poultry, either with a view to in-
creasing the vigor of the bird or develop-

THE DADE COUNTY FAIR.
As Seen by Louis J. Brumby of the Fruit
and Truck Grower.
(Written during the progress of the Fair
by L .T. Brumby.)
I believe the present fair in Dade Coun-
ty demonstrates a fact and also estab-
lishes an example. The fact-that with
the extremely varied resources of this
State a proper exposition of the particu-
lar advantages of any one section can best
lie shown by the county fair, that such
fairs can lie more easily managed, that
the advantages of the advertising of the
section are more readily achieved, and
that the interest in their continuation
from year to year be more easily assured;
an example- in that the growth of such
fairs may he in keeping with the gradual
or rapid (as the case may be) growth
and development of that particular sec-
tion in which such fairs are held. I could
wish nothing better for Florida than that
each county should follow the example
set by Dade. True, all of them could not
have that fostering support and encour-
agement given to the producers in Dade
by that notable Florida developer, Mr.
'iagler, but the work in time would bring
to the front strong men in every county,
whose ability and effort would be strongly
augmented by the sure successes that
would attend their efforts.
This is the seventh annual fair of the
Dade County Agricultural and Horticultu-
ral Society. Its history, short as it may
le, is equal in length to that of the mu-
nicipality of Miami, and its birth coninci-
dent with the newer and greater develop-
ment of the lower east coast, a develop-
ment at which the whole country wonders.
Each year the interest in the fair increased
until finally Mr. Flagler erected a hand-
some building for its use. This building
is right on Biscayne Bay, at the foot of
the main street of the city, and faces
the beautiful grounds of the Royal Palm
Both the building and its location are
ideal. All farmers are invited to exhib-
it; there are no entrance fees, and there
are no fees, even of admission. There are
no side shows, no gambling devices, no
fakirs, nothing but the fair pure and
simple. And there never has been such a
fair like it.
The fair of this year is very far ahead
of its predecessors, successful as they
were. First, the exhibits are larger in
extent and more comprehensive in scope,
while in quality as far as can be judged,
the percentage is the very highest re-
corded. All of this is the result of past
experience, of study and interchange of
ideas among the growers in which these
annual fairs have been most potent fac-
tors. Then again is shown the good pol-
icy of the application of business meth-
ods to agricultural pursuits. For in every
case your Dade county farmer is a busi-
nesst man and equally as much so as his
brother, the banker and the merchant.
And right here it might be well to say
the latter class in Miami are pretty good
Second, the premium list for this year
was very much larger than ever before,
both in individual and society special pre-
miums. The list offered would do credit
to any State fair in the country.
Third, and I think of very great im-
portance, is the increased interest shown
by the people themselves both in the mat-
ter of exhibits and in attendance. And
this increased interest is shown also by
the army of winter visitors to whom the
displays are in the nature of a revelation.
most especially to those on their first
visit who come down in the preconceivedl
notion that Florida produced largely and
mainly sand, mosquitoes and alligators,
and that the people "lived on fish in the
summer and Yankees in the winter."
"I was more than greatly impressed
with the intense personal interest dis-
played by Mr. Flagler, Mr. Ingraham ant
other ollicials of the East Coast Railway.
Tle ve:y first visitor on the opening day
was Mr. Flagler himself, who came in at
sunrise and during each day was contain
ually in the building and whose interest
was only equalled by his knowledge of tlhe
value and importance of the fair to the
individual grower and how much it adde:l
to the development of his dream of tinh
transformation of a wilderness into an ac-
tive and busy scene of life, of progress.
and one where man "in the pursuit of
happiness" can easily find it. The indi
vidual prizes offered by Mr. Flagler and
the east coast were very large.
It would be idle for me to attAempt to
enumerate the different varieties of fruits
and vegetables shown. Take a big seed-
man's and nurseryman's catalogue and addl
a fairly good per cent to that, and you
may grasp the idea. The fruit display
was very line, embracing all the branches
of the citrus family, many of the small
fruits, pineapples in endless variety, large
bunches of lananas. eocoanuts and so on.
Many of the displays were artistic to a
high degree, notably one in the form of
a big ocean vessel, named Henry M. Flag
ler, and bearing the flag of the Miami and
New York Steamship line. Miami first,
mind you. This vessel was filled with all
the different varieties of vegetables, with
the hull of crates of tomatoes, Dade's
greatest crop. In manufactured articles
front Florida products, such as jellies.
wines, marmalade, pickles and various
condiments, the display was good. These
were from regular maunnactories, located
in the county, and which ship their goods
all over the United States, and even now
a small quantity abroad.
A new department this year, and one
that met with great approval and that
was eminently successful, was the wo-
man's department. Something like a thou-
sand pictures adorned the walls, and many
of tliem were especially good; while in
one section there was every known cre-
ation of woman's dainty handiwork. I
am told this latter was extra good, but
am not an authority.
Taken as a whole, the Dade County
Fair is wortl going very far to see and
I Inith think and hope its example and
influence will be felt in every county in
'lorida. They are particularly fortunate
down there, however, in their secretary.

Notice Regarding Spirit Barrel Situation.
Savannah, Ga., March 28, 1004.
To Our Patrons:
In order to prevent the manufacture of spirit barrels being
monopolized, and customers of this corporation being annoyed by pos-
sible delay and trouble in securing their supply, to encourage and
maintain competition among the numerous factories, thereby ensuring
to the producers at all times I protection against excessive prices and a
better quality of barrel than if no competition existed,
We have Become Interested In the Barrel Mannfactorlni Basiness.
This corporation and some friendly associates have acquired a
large interest in the Montgomery Cooperage & Hardware Company,
who control and operate an up-to-date machine barrel plant at Mont-
gomery. Ala., as well as hand shops at Ocala, Fla. and Valdosta, Ga
The Jacksonville Cooperage Company, operating a barrel shop
at Jacksoiville. and owning an interest in hand shops at Live Oak and
Tampa. Fla.. is also closely allied with this corporation. All of the
above named factories propose to and are making barrels strictly in
accordance with the requirements of the Savannah Board of Trade,
and their barrels will be a good delivery anywhere.
The probable policy will be to eliminate all rebates and commis-
sions heretofore paid and give to the producer a good barrel at as low a
price as is consistent.
We will appreciate your patronage of the shops in which we are
interested, Yours truly,
J. P. WILLIAMS COMPANY.

The Details of the Naval Stores Exposition
The Record has received a large number
of inquiries regarding the special naval
stores train to St. Louis and return. This
train, consisting entirely of Pullman draw-
ing room cars, observation and dining cars,
will leave Jacksonville Thursday, June
30th, at 8:30 p. m. and will arrive in
St. Louis, Saturday, July 2, at 6:00 a. m.
The trip will be made over the Southern
Railway via Atlanta, Chattanooga, Lex.
ington and Louisville. The train will be
a special and will take no passengers after
it leaves Jacksonville and none here ex-
cept those who belong to the naval stores
party. The number in the party will
be limited to 100, and there will be four
Pullman sleepers in addition to the other
cars, in order that there may be no crowd-
The train will be especially conducted
by an official of the Southern Railway
and by the officials of the Turpentine Op-
erators' Association, and will be in many
respects one of the most luxurious trains
ever leaving Florida. The central idea
in the arrangements for this train is for
comfort and convenience.
Returning, the train, which will be the
same identical equipment as going, will
leave St. Louis Thursday evening, July
7th, arriving in Jacksonville Saturday
morning, July 9th, in good time to permit
all operators and their wives to get to
their respective homes for Sunday.
These dates give six full days in St.
Louis, including Sunday, which immed-
diately follows the arrival there, and af-
fords a day of quiet rest and sight-seeing.
The Democratic National Convention
meets in St. Louis Wednesday, July 6th.
The itinerary for this special train has
been arranged at the above dates in order
to give all the operators and their families
an opportunity of looking in on the great-
est indoor event in the history of the
United States-the making of a Presiden-
In view of the fact that St. Louis will
be crowded to over-flowing during the
great World's Fair, and particularly at
the time when the National Convention
mneets, the secretary of the Turpentine
Operators' Association will go to St. Louis
early in May and make all arrangements
for the comfortable hotel accommodation
of the naval stores party.
With reference to the cost of this trip,
these complete details will be arranged
in the next few days and all turpentine
men notified by circular letter, issued di-
rect by the Southern Railway.

The South has long furnished the best

pects that staple from Maine and Michi-
gan, as heretofore. The great oyster
business of Baltimore and New Jersey is
fast declining, owing to the vast oyster
beds in Florida, Alabama and Mississ-
ippi. More oyster shuckers came South
this winter to work than ever before, and
the oyster fields here seem to be inex-
haustible, and this industry will grow
yearly into immense proportions, as has
the iron business of Alabama and Ten-
With improved water courses and new
railroad extensions, the Southern coun-
try presents a most inviting field for de-
velopment, and the wise and far-sighted
are evidently aware of this fact by aban-
doning the fields North for those South.
Business in every line has constantly in-
creased in this section since 1880, and
tunre is no apparent relaxation. We have
the resources, and their development
means great wealth to those who take
hold of them.

S. P. HOLMES & CO.'S MARKET RE-
Stocks. The stock market this week has
been very strong, with special activity
in Union Pacific. It is evident that pur-
chases of this' stock have been concentrat-
ed for some object. The violent manner
of the rise of the stock would in all prob-
a ability enuse recessions in other stocks
if tihe general public had 4len buying to
any extent. It is evident that every one
had underestimated thlie magnitude of the
out-ianding general short interest.
The Northern Securities decision con-
tinues widely discussed. especially tile
j1rolilein brought to light by it. As for
the Wall Street opinion as to the de-
cision. naturally those closest to the mar-
ket will Irok upon it with spectacles col-

JAMES P. TALIAFERRO.
On another page of the Record to-day
we publish a very interesting sketch of
United Staates Senator James P. Talia-
ferro. This is not published especially
for the purpose of familiarizing our read-
ers with the life and works of this dis-
tinguished Floridian, for they are gene-
rally known. It is with especial pride,
however, that we point to the fact that
Senator Taliaferro first planted his hopes
in Florida among industrial classes and
graduated, so to speak, from the log
camps and the lumber yards. The Indus-
trial Record, as a paper devoted to the
"pine and its products," is pleased to hold
up Mr. Taliaferro as an example for the
hundreds of worthy young men who are
engaged in industrial pursuits to-day,
and to illustrate with him the possibil-
ties of the industry in which he began
his life of usefulness to the young man
who is not afraid to work, and who backs
the labor of his hands with the alert-
ness of his head and the sincerity of his
Senator Taliaferro has very fittingly be-
come known as "Florida's business Sen-
ator." To have a State, young in de-
velopment, but full of industrial and com-
mercial possibilities, successfully repre-
sented in the United States Congress, it
necessarily becomes a business proposition.
The professional politician may make
more noise on the floor, may attain more
newspaper notoriety, may swear louder,
play better poker and make more money
fot himself, but when it comes to accom-
plishind result for his State, the quiet,
dignified business man, who works in the
committee room, and has the interest of
his constituency first in mind is the man
who always succeeds. It is results that
a State wants. When we say that Sen-
ator Taliaferro is such a man we point
to his record for five years in the Senate.
The Record is not in politics. It does
not aspire to be. This paper is too busy
in trying to foster the industrial devel-
opment of our section and the game of
politics in itself plays a small part in
this work; but it is important that we
keep .men in Congress who can aid and
abet this development and we believe the
industrial and business interests of Flor-
ida would suffer if Senator Taliaferro
was not returned to the good work he
has so well in hand.
So here's to the boy of the logging
camp-worthy son of an humble but noble
CANE GROWERS' CONVENTION.
The cane growers' convention that
meets in this city next month represents
a constituency that is well organized, with
a defined policy and has its work thor-
oughly in hand. While sugarcane is con-
fined to the South Atlantic and Gulf
States, those who cultivate it are in ac-
cord, and have commingled much with
each other. They know what they want
and how to go about getting it. The
coming meeting will be to them simply a
milestone, but it will mark an era in
the business that will be far-reaching.
The Industrial Record early espoused
the cause of the turpentine operators
and demanded that they perfect a com-
pact organization. They did so, and the
result is well known. The Record also
took up the question of' the cattlebreed-
ers' organizing. They met in this city last
month and organized, and the Record looks
with great interest to the future of that
organization. The Record over a year ago
demanded a thorough organization of the
cane growers, and the Macon meeting last
summer was the result.
Our amntlings are all growing and pros-
pering. What organization has done for
the T. O. A. and is now doing for the
cane growers, it will do for the cattle-
breeders. But the future is pregnant with
results which these three organizations
will have upon the South.
OPENING THE NEW YEAR.
The naval stores year begins to-day.
In naval stores circles the opinion seems
to be that while the prospects are bright
for a good business the coming year, it
will undoubtedly be beset with many un-
certainties. The presidential election, the
war in the East. the more or less unsettled
conditions of labor throughout the coun-
try are all conditions that may affect it
somewhat. The year just closed is mark-
ed with a white stone, for it was a most
excellent year in every respect in the na-
val stores business. When we consider
the elements that will enter into it this
year which were unknown last year, we
will do well if we hold our own.
A number of naval stores men were
seen by the Record this morning and asked
for an opinion as to the year just closed
and the conditions and prospects for 1904-
05.. While not caring to be quoted in-
dividually. they all expressed the opin-
ion that probably the business would be as
gosl. if not better, this year than last,
notwithstanding the uncertainties above
alluded to. There was no difference of
opinion among them, however, about the
proposition that if we do as well the com-
ing year as we did last year, we will do

A WAY AND A TIME.
Tallahassee has organized a gun club.
It contains a number of the leading citi-
zens of Florida's capital city. Every true
sportsman is anxious to protect the game,
and it is to be hoped that the Tallahassee
gun club will crystallize the sentiment
that no unsportsmanlike shooting or trap-
ping of game will be permitted, either
in kind or time. There is a way to kill
and a time to kill, and the observance of
the one is as important as the observance
of the other.
FARMERS HOLDING THEIR OWN.
Timbered lands in Florida that were
selling a few years ago at from 25 to 50
cents per acre, are now selling anywhere
from $3.50 to $10 per acre, according to
quantity, quality and location. Improved
agricultural lands have increased from 50
to 100 per cent in value, and there is a
general disposition among the farmers and
planters not to sell at any price, as there
is an abundance of money to be made at
present, or even lower crop values. The
general improvement in agriculture and
in other lines has placed the farming in-
terests on a very solid basis, and has en-
abled a great many planters to obtain
the necessary advances for operating their
business without being required to secure
them by crop lien or mortgage; in fact,
a great many of the more successful plant-
ers have sufficient funds in hand out of
last season's crop to practically or entirely
finance the current year's operations.
The general indebtedness of the farm-
ers has been very materially decreased
during the last two or three years, and
old mortgages that have been running
for a number of years have been mostly
paid off and the record closed up, and
Mr. James S. Turner died at his home
in Levy County, Fla., last Monday. Mr.

ness men. He owned the Duval Hotel

Changed Their Plans.
F. P. Conroy and F. S. Hodges had an-
nounced heir intention of engaging in the
wholesale grocery business in this city, go-
ing so far as to arrange for a charter, and
engaging warehouses and offices for that
purpose. And Mr. Conroy, who had had
charge of the Armour business in this
city had resigned that position. Smith
& Richardson, the beef men, offered him
a business connection, and he has ac-
cepted it instead. Mr. Hodges, who is
quite largely interested in stock-raising
and timber business in this State, will
have his hands full looking after those
Rafts at Wilmington.
There is a humorous conflict on at the
Wilmington, N. C., wharves. Under an
old custom, rafts of timber, rosin, etc.,
are tied up at any wharf in the city over
night, to be removed only at the pleasure
of the raft owner. The wharf owners
are trying to break up this custom, and
on the 234 ult. they held a meeting in
that city for that purpose. It was agreed
that all present should go in a body to
the Board of Commissioners of Navigation
and Pilotage, and ask that organization to
pass a regulation designating some place
where rafts could be tied up and accom-
modations provided for raftsmen.

IN PHOSPHATE CIRCLES.
What is Going on with the Florida Miners
The market at present is inactive, but
the prices remainfirm and steady. The
annual meeting of quite a number of the
big mining and shipping concerns took
place in February. among which we note
that of the Palmetto Phosphate Co., the
Peace River Phosphate Co. and the Port
Inglis Terminal Co.
At the meeting of the Palmetto Phos-
phate Co., which took place at Bartow, the
following were present: J. H. and Thos. E.
Cottman, R. W. L. Rasin and Wm. Mar-
burg, of Baltimore; H. C. Mortimer and
Jos. Willetts, of New York and the fol-
lowing ocers were elected: Chas. E. Bish-
op, president, and J. H. Cottman, secre-
tary and treasurer. The Palmetto Co. op-
erate two plants in the land-pebble dis-
trict, among which is the famous "Tiger
Bay" plant, which is one of the largest
mining concerns in the State.
The annual meetings of the Dunnellon
Phosphate Co. and the Port Inglis Termi-
nal Co. were held at the offices of these
companies, at Rockwell, Fla., on February
16th. The officers were all re-elected, those
of the first named being Jno. L. Inglis,
president; Jno. W. Auchinloss, vice-presi-
dent; Ralph Barker, secretary; Hugh D.
Auchinlose, treasurer, and Dr. C. U. Shep-
ard, chemical director, who, with Alex.
Whylie and P. B. Bradley, constitute the
The officers of the Port Inglis Co. are
Hug D. Auchinloss, president; Jno. L. In-
glis, vice-president and general manager;
Ralph Barker, secretary, and Jno. W. Au-
chincloss, treasurer. The directors include
the above and 0. T. Green, A. G. Bigelow,
Alex. Whylie and S. D. Auchincloss.
Although last year was the first com-
plete year in using Port Inglis as an ex-
porting port, it has proved successful from
every standpoint. The Dunnellon Phos-
phate Co. shipped over 95,000 tons of hard-
rock phosphate through the port, in 32
vessels with good dispatch and without
the least hitch. The company are now
preparing to add another powerful tug to
their large fleet, and will build several
new barges, the latter to be built entirely
of steel. Beside these, the company will
erect a marine railway and shops at Port
Inglis, anl, through the new combination
arrangements of shipping and selling be-
tween the Dunnellon Phosphate Co. and J. Ie
Buttgenhach & Co., the business of this
port will soon be swelled to nearly double, I
as it is the intention of J. Buttgenbach &
Co. to export their production through
Port Inglis just as soon as they can com-
plete the new railway which is being built
from their mines to Rockwell, where they *

erection of a large plant. The officers of

The Ross Phosphate Co., another new or-
ganization, composed of W. M. Ross, Jas.
MI. Graham and S. G. Moyer, capitalized
at $50,000, have applied to the State of
Florida for letters patent. This company
will take over the mines and plants now
operated by W. M. Ross.
The Dutton Phosphate Co., of Gaines-
ville, have gotten out a neat and attract-
ire calendar, and. besides the unusual style .
in which it is arranged, there are differ-
ent views of the various enterprises ope-
rated by this company on each page. As
the Dutton Phosphate Co. operate 11
mines, and a railway from the mines to
the Atlantic seaboard, they had quite a
large field to draw from for material for
Florida Fruits and Vegetables.
Thirty carloads of Florida fruits and
vegetables passed through this city on
Saturday and Sunday last on their way
to the markets of the North and West.
A large part of the vegetables consisted
of tomatoes, and much of these were
trans-shipped via the steamship Seminole
for New York. One carload of celery was
consigned to Denver, Colorado. Straw-
berries are coming through now in large
lots. They bring good prices.

At the Cattlemen's Convention
* a aaasJaaa aaa
u _ _ _ _ _ _
Mr. President andGentlemen of the Con-
vention: When I was a boy in Sunday-
scholol, I read of the disturbance between
Moses and Aaron about the golden calf
and ever siner that time calves and gold
have Iben mixed up in my head. For a
long time I endeavored to get enough
gold to go into the calf business, but at
last learnmw- my error, and am now raising
calves trying to get into the gold busi-
The subject assigned to me by your com-
mittee, What the Cattle Industry Has
Done for Florida, necessarily calls for
facts of history, and, unfortunately, the
class of people who know most about it,
are unwilling to take the trouble to give
them. I am, however, under obligations
to Dr. II. T. Lykes and James Summerlin
for valuable assistance.
About the year 1840 the pioneers began
to come into the peninsula, and all of
them brought more or less cattle. They
were much harassed by wolves and In-
dians, but, as the wolves were poisoned
with strychnine, and the Indians driven
further South, the cattle were allowed to
scatter, and increased very fast. The
ranges were at that time good, and no,
pastures were known or needed. The
"Heart II" brand was one of the stocks
which ran to numbers very fast, and fi-
nally reached 30,000. Other very promi-
nent brands marking great herds were the
"A" the "22" and the "S. S'" Like notes
hearing compound interest, these cattle
added to themselves, while their owners
wer asleep or at play. As a rule, all in-
te:ested in a range, would hunt together
at gathering time, round up everybody's
cattle, mark and brand the calves and di-
vide the mavericks according to the inter-
ests represented. Then all cattle were
turned out again. Very little provisions,
except bread, were carried on these round-
ups, as the practice was to kill the fat-
test beef for meat, no matter to whom
it belonged. Occasionally, there was a
cattle owner who would not hunt with
his neighbors, because, in hunting alone,
he got all the mavericks he could find.
Cattlenmen soon became the moneyed
men of the country, although marking and
branding was the only attention given to
their stock, except to sell out the steers
for beef. There were, however, some
who went into the range and lived with
their cattle, and it was the boast of one
oll lady that she had personally brandedl
every calf in her large stock for a nunm-
her of years. In cases of this kind, their
rattle and money increased very fast, and
In those days, stock cattle were worth
only about $3 per head. Notwithstanding
the large increase in numlbrs, the price
gradually increased, and in 1870 great ex-
portations to Cuba began, and from that
date to 1882, from Punta Rassa alone.
which was the principal loading point,
360.000 head of beef cattle we:e shipped.
for which the rangemen received an aver-
age of $16 per head, which, with $2.50
per head to the speculators, gave the
State the enormous sum of $6.360.000
During the same period about 300.000 stock
cattle were shipped, and for these the
rangemen received, in round numbers, $3,-
240,000. or a total for all cattle shipped.
$9,600.999. These cattle averaged in
weight about 600 pounds gross, or 300
pounds net. Then came a cessation of
exports to a large extent, and I have no:
figures for the next sixteen years. lie-
ginning in 1898 another boom came on,
and though the stocks had become very
inferior in grade, falling to an average
weight of 480 pounds gross, the Cuban
trade took from the State:
In 1898, 6,000 head beef; in 1899, 30.000
head beef; in 1900, 30.000 head beef and
10.000 head stock; in 1901, 30.000 head
beef and 10,000 head stock; in 1902,
20.000 head beef and 15.000 head stock;
in 1903. 20.000 head beef and 20,000 head
stock. Total, 141,000 head beef and 55,-
000 head stock.
This inferior lightweight cattle aver-
aged $15 per head for beef, making $2,115,.
000, and $9 per head for stock, making,
$495.000. or a total in the six years ,"!
$2.610.000, which added to the previous
exports, gives a grand total of $12.210,-
000 from Cuba alone. When it becomes
known that the local State markets take
an average of 30,000 head per annum.
these figures are more than doubled, as
the local markets were taking cattle for
the sixteen years when there was little
shipping to Cuba. The rangemen advised
ne that Cuba would have taken larger
numbers the past few years if they could
have been had; and also, that the local
markets would have taken those which
went to Cuba, if they were kept fat enough
to kill in winter. Notwithstanding the
fact that cattle have been reduced in
weight from 600 pounds to 480 pounds
gross, by the ranges giving out, and from
continuous inbreeding of the same stocks,
the demand for meat is so strong that the
price per head remains about the same.

offspring is weakened in constitution,

requires it to be fed. There are so many
poor individuals among the home-raised
steers, that the profit in feeding good ones
is largely reduced by the inferior ones.
If the feeding quality of our steers can
lie raised, feeding will become more gen-
ereal; the demand will be sharper; prof-
its larger and the home trade will con-
sume then all.
If, by pure blood and increased interest.
we produce more good beef than local
markets will take, we are within one hun-
alre I miles of phosphate ports, which
nre full of tramp steamers for foreign
ports; whereas, Iowa and the great West
are hundreds of miles from Chicago, and
more than 1.000 miles to port of ship-
anent. The exporters now decline to buy
2.000 pound steers, once wanted so much.

term "handy weights," averaging 1,200 to

favor. I recently met on the train Mr.

that buyers for export come right to their
farms. lie thinks the best of Florida
lands, with intelligent breeding will give
us a steer to go anywhere abroad. United
States Government exlpriments show fed
cattle to dress an ave:-age of 52 1-2 pounds
to 100 pounds live weight; and moderately
good animals, produced by crossing with
the beef breeds, dress 60 pounds. Fig-
uring a loss of only 5 per cent. on the
slaughter test, of all the 672,740 head of
cattle now on the tax books of Florida.
the enormous total of 16,818,500 pounds
loss is indicated, representing a money
value of $840,925, figuring dressed meat
at only 5 cents per pound. Besides this
loss in weight, the quality, by crossing.
would also enhance the price per pound.
It may be argued that Southeren feeds
will not produce meat as good as that

Stopping beef cattle. After reviewing the
great things which the cattle industry has
done for Florida. had we not best look
somewhat into the future, and see if
greater things cannot be done? Having
seen that Cuba restocked herself after her
ten-year war. and quit taking our cattle
from 1882 till another war came on in
189,. had we not better face the fact that
-he is again tranquil in government, large-
ly restocked with cattle, and will soon
again supply largely her own demands for
beef? As already stated. our shipments
there practically ceased from 1882 till
IM88. If we had been, at that time, able
to supply high-bred cattle, this would
not have been. It is a very significant
thing that her beef growers are no longer
satisfied with the quality of animals we
have sent there. and that she is buying
lIlohslel bulls in Texas, and that one of
hIr citizens recently paid $450 for a pure-
bred beef ct,w at Auburn, Ala., taking
half a dozen bulls at the same time, at
aloiIt the same figures. This shows that
if we still use her markets, we must com-
pete with high-class meat; if we give up
her market, we must compete at home
with Western meat. People in Florida mw;:
no longer cat work oxen, old shelly cows,
or young steers, if not fat. They have
tasted fed Florida and Western meats,
and they are going to eat one or the other.
.1Men who are feeding Florida steers must
have, and are willing to pay outside prices
for really gond ones. The first cross of
pure bred bulls, of any of the beef breeds,
is a revelation in improvement, and
though I have tried to avoid all reference
to persons and breeds, in order that you
mlay imt have to accept my statement,
I take the libe-ty of inviting you to Mar-

selves what one good Shorthorn bull has
done for calves out of the cold-blooded

A good story is going the rounds on
P. L. Sutherland. the "silver-tongued ora-
tor of the Turpentine Operators' Associa-
tion." and. by the way, one of the larg-
est and most successful producers in Flor-
ida. A prominent turpentine man who is
wealthy approached a young friend who
is poor with a gigantic business propo-
sition, involving several thousands of dol-
"Good proposition," said the young fel-
low, "but, my dear man, I haven't got
"Humph!" replied the older, "it don't
always take money to figure in big deals,
just look at P. L. Sutherland."
This reminds us of a couple of printers'
"devils," one from the pressroom and the
other from the composing room, who were
lunching together in the rear of the ma-
chine room along about 12:30. Their con-
versation was overheard by the foreman:
"Say, Bill," said the older, "I'm getting
blamed tired of this devil business-let's
break aloose and make some money."
"What doing?" drawled the younger.
"Why, start a bank."
"Bank! Gee whiz, kid, where in the name
of goodness would we get the money."
"O, it don't take no money, just put up
a good front."
"May be so," concluded the younger.
"but I'm thinking a gsalo backing would
be a darned sight Iwtter."
What a power the combination must
be! Sutherland had both.
Speaking about banks, though, it is re-
called that Sutherland is now president of
the Bank of Green Cove Springs, Fla.
When this bank was first organized, Suth
erland, Arthur F Perry, cashier of the
Mercantile Exchange Bank, and a mutual
fro-nd were talking.
"Bank, eh?" said the friend, "What
do you know about loaning money," ad-
dressing the new president.
"Ask Perry," said Sutherland.
"Don't know a thing about his 'loaning'
qualities," said Perry, "but I can vouch
that he is a post-graduate in the art of
Joking aside, P. L. Sutherland is one
of the most remarkable young men in the
naval stores business. It is no secret that
he came to Florida five years ago without
a dollar that he didn't owe. He has madi
a comfortable fortune already in the in-
dustry that he loves, and his career, as a
business man and developer,- has just be-
gun. he owes a great deal to friends who
assisted him in his early investments, but
without a keen intellect, a boundless en-
ergy and a noble character, lie could not
have succeeded, though a thousand hands
had held him up. He has succeeded first
of all, because he has deserved to succeed.
Erecting Big Cooperage Plant.
The Cooperage Company, recently organ-
ized in .Jacksonville by prominent factors

the permanent organization perfected.
The company was organized for the pur
pose of doing a general cooperage busi
ness, particularly for the manufacture ol

Capt. W. H. Towles, of Fort Myers.
Iought 5,000 head of beef cattle from
King Brothers and Hendry & Whiiden,
at Arcadia, the past week. The price
paid was about $75,000.
Hun. J. W. Bryant, of Kathleen, closed
a deal last week with Mr. E. E. Skipper
for twenty head of fine full-blooded Dev-
in heifers, which Mr. Skipper recently
shipped in from Texas. Mr. Bryant pur-
chased several head of the same kind of
stock from Mr. Skipper on a former ship-
ment and they did so well and he was so
much pleased with them that he decided
to increase his nunber.-Bartow Courier.
A number of large business deals were
consummated here this week in which

per head. The stock is estimated at about
3,500 head. In the deal Mr. Parker pur-
chased the orange grove of King Bros. in
tle vicinity of Calvinia, for which he pays

that it will bear between five and six
thousand boxes of fruit this year.-Arca-

To Test Southern Waters.
The United States Geological Survey,
through its division of Hydro Economics,
has commenced an investigation into the
character of the waters of the States of
Florida and Georgia. The investigation
will include the ground waters, or those
coming from wells and springs, and the
surface waters, or those which flow in
The character -. the Georgia waters in
general is comparatively unknown. A few
analyses have been made for special pur-
Ipses, but until recently little or no at-
tempt has been made to make a careful
survey of the general water supply of the
The value of the investigation will, of
course lie in its applicability in respect
to the various water problems obtaining
in that part of the country. Of first im-
portance is the water supply of munici-
palities, while only second to this is con-
sideration of the character of water for
use in manufacturing and in boilers.
It is therefore an investigation which
will be of interest to the manufacturing
circles of Georgia and Florida, and of great
value to the railr~d municipalities.
The work is under the supervision of
Mr. M. O. Leighton, chief Division of
Hydro Economics, while the field work
is being carried on by Mr. Titus Ulke,
assistant chief Geological Survey.

the company is forced to increase its ca
paucity to meet the demand. During the

about three million cups, and could have

the capacity of the plant been equal to

The butterflies go over the cabbage patches

themselves they die. They will sometimes
eat a head of cabbage down to a little
