Have you ever taken into consideration
the growing of high-class pecan nuts
from a profitable standpoint? Did you
know that pecan trees six or seven years
from planting in grove could be made to
bring in an income of $2.00 or more per
tree, increasing the income to from $15.00
to $25.00 per tree in ten or twelve years t
Take one acre, or twenty-seven trees, at
seven years from planting bringing an
average income of $2.00 per tree, means
$54.00 in proceeds. If these trees are cared
for, and presuming that at ten years, they
yield as much as $10.00 per tree, which is
a low estimate, that means over $250.00
per acre. It is no infrequent thing for a
ten year planted tree to yield a crop of
from fifty to seventy-five pounds of a
high class, large Paper shell nut, that sell
on the large markets for 25e and upwards
per pound, and the demand cannot be sup-
plied and will not within the next fifty
years, from the fact that consumption is
so much more steadily increasing and that
pecans are being used for so many differ-
ent purposes, even to making the most ex-
pensive of salad oils on the market, also
cooking oils; aside from being the fovor-
ite nut for table use, candies desserts, etc.
The American nut crop falls so far short
that we are importing into the United
States upwards of ten million dollars
worth of nuts a year.
The basis of yield from pecan trees by
the most prominent and conservative ad-
vocates of the industry, place first crop at
five pounds sixth year, ten pounds seventh
year, twenty pounds eighth year, forty
pounds ninth year, and an increase of
about fifteen pounds each year thereafter
up to fifteen years, after planting of good
sized grafted or budded trees, giving 130
pounds the fifteenth year, and after the fif-
teenth year the yield still continues to in-
crease. The parent Stuart tree bore 140
pounds of nuts at fifteen years from seed,
and at eighteen years of age, bore 350
pounds of nuts.
The price on inferior seedling pecans
has advanced from three or five cents per
pounds in the last few years, to ten and
twelve and one-half cents per pound, and
this latter is the price today of the small-
est and most inferior grades in thousand
pound lots, while the selected paper
shell nuts of large size are selling at
from twentyfive cents to seventy-five
cents per pound on the large markets.
The pecan industry is still in its infancy

The following bill has been introduced in
the Mississippi legislature and will be
urged for passage before adjournment.
The measure is favored by THE TUR-
PENTINE OPERATORS ASSOCIATION
which originated and secured the passage
of similar legislation in Georgia and Flor-
ida. The legislation has worked well and
proven very beneficial to Turpentine Pro-
ducers and honest dealers in those states.
It appears that there are no laws in Mis-
sissippi regulating naval stores inspection
or preventing adulteration of turpentine.
Therefore some of the evils regulated in

abama river and are flourishing in the wes-
tern territory. The Record urges that its

present, if he desires, in person or by agent,
at such sampling, and to demand and re-
ceive of such supervising inspector of na-

visions of this Act. The term "barrel," as
applied to spirits of turpentine, shall be

strued to mean "round barrels," and not

imposed by the State of Mississippi and
the same penalties are hereby imposed
on producers evading or failing to pay
said tax as are provided for evasion or
non-payment of other taxes required by
law in this State.
Section 14. Be it further enacted that
after the passage and approval of this
Act a license or occupation tax of $250 per
year shall be imposed on each and every
corporation, firm or individual engaged in
buying naval stores, turpentine and rosin

gate promptly the nature of such com-
plaint and examine the samples complained
of, and if said complaint, if any, is ascer-
tained to be well founded and the samples
are discovered to be improper and irregu-

the sub-inspector to use proper samples,
as provided for in this section of the Act,
and shall furthermore caution and warn
tle sub-inspector to use at all times the
right and correct rosin types.
Section 18. It is further enacted that
any violation of any of the provisions of
this Act by any naval stores producers,

CELERY BRINGS BIG RETURNS.
Half Million Dollars from a Hundred Acres
Sufficient progress has been made in the
marketing of the vegetable crop grown at
Sanford to enable those who are handling
the same to a large extent to estimate the
volume of the production, and also its
value. It is judged that about one-half
of the celery crop has gone to the North-
ern markets; other crops of less import-
ance will continue to move until the first
of June. Those who have reason to know
say that the entire crop from first to last
will amount to over two hundred car loads,
and that the total value will reach a quar-
ter of a million dollars, and this, too, pro-
duced on less than one hundred acres.
This includes in many instances three
crops per annum. Undoubtedly no similar
results can be shown from a like area
from any portion of the United States.
Mr. Stenstrom, a perfectly reliable gen-
tleman, gives the information that he cut
and sold 1,400 crates of celery from one
acre of ground, receiving therefore about
T. J. Miller estimates that he will cut
about two hundred crates of celery from
less than one-quarter of an acre, in fact,
only a little over an eighth of an acre,
which he has sold for $420. Many other
instances might be mentioned of these
wonderful and unparalleled crops, and a
remarkable fact is, that is worthy of note,
that no failures are known or have been
reported. The prospects are that at least
fifty per cent more ground will be opened
up this coming season.

The dredge under construction at Fort

in digging a canal to drain the Everglades,
as proposed by Governor Broward and the

which is on hand, and the craft made ready
to begin dredging operations within a
Governor Broward and State Chemist
Rose were present at the launching which
occurred about noon, and was successful
in every respect.
The hull of the dredge is 50x112 feet
in size, and it is said the machinery to be
installed will have a greater capacity than
any similar dredge ever constructed in the
State. Governor Broward will come down
again and be present when the craft is put
to work on the project which is just now
agitating and interesting the State.

Tuesday two carloads of Italian labor-
ers, numbering 54, arrived at Live Oak
over the Coast Line and immediately left
for East Park, where they will be employed
in Dowling's mill.
The unreliability of colored help seems
to have demanded the importation of for-
eign labor, not only there, but elsewhere
in the State, and it will not be long before
colored help will be eternally done away

THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
To Regulate Gathering of Turpentine.
Washington, March 23, 1906.
Representative Lacey, of Iowa, has in-
troduced a bill "to punish the cutting,
cetpping or boxing of trees on the public
lands." The measure is designed to pre-
vent the gathering of turpentine or other
gums from trees or. the public domain and
is a more comprehensive measure than
that which has been pending for several
past Congresses. The bill originally intro-
duced in the lty-seventh Congress and
referred to from time to time in this cor-
respondence, was limited in its prohibition
to lands set apart by the government be-
cause of the timber thereon available for
shipbuilding purposes. Mr. Lacey's bill,
however, covers all the public domain and
is a specific prohibition in the following
"Be it enacted, etc., That every person
who shall cut, chip, chop or box any tree
on any lands belonging to the United
States or on any lands covered by or em-
braced in any unperfected settlement, ap-
plication, filing, entry, selection or loca-
tion, made under any law of the United
States, for the purpose of obtaining from
such tree any pitch, turpentine or other
substance; and every person who shall
knowingly encourage, cause, procure or aid
any such tree to be so cut, or who shall
buy, trade for or in any manner acquire
any pitch, turpentine or other substance,
or any article or commodity made from
any pitch, turpentine or other substance,
when he has knowledge that the same has
been so unlawfully obtained from such
trees, shall upon conviction thereof, be
punished by a fine of not more than five
hundred dollars or by imprisonment not
exceeding twelve months, or by bpth such
fine and imprisonment."
It is understood that the Committee on
Public Lands will give a hearing on this
measure, as at least one of its features
seems likely to cause embarrassment to the
legitimate turpentine trade. It will be
noted that the bill provides penalties, in-
eluding both fine and imprisonment, for
any person buying pitch, turpentine or
other substance "when he has knowledge
that the same has been so unlawfully ob-
tained from such trees, etc."
The trade does not object to the punish-
ment of any person guilty of purchasing
what might be called stolen property, but
it seems to be generally desired that this
feature of the bill shall be rendered more
specific with respect to the knowledge of
the purchaser as to the origin of the tur-
pentine. It is conceivable, it is contended,
that a purchaser might know that the
turpentine bought by him had been taken
on government land, but at the same time
might assume that the party gathering it
had permission to do so. In such a case
it might be held that the purchaser knew
the source of the turpentine and therefore
must have known that it was "unlawfully
obtained." Mr. Lacey is inclined to think
that the bill is sufficiently specific in its 4
present form, and it is understood that it
has the approval of the General Land Of- *
fice. It is possible, however, that it may
eI modified before being reported.-Oil,

TAMPA'S CIGAR OUTPUT.
An Ieeaa of Over 12a,0000 Over Same
Period Last Year.
Tampa's cigar shipments, up to March
24, showed an increase over the same pe-
riod of last year of over 12,000,000 cigars.
One-fourth of the year has passed. At
the same rate of increase for the remain-
ing three-quarters, the increase for the
entire year will be 48,000,000, which will
make the total output of clear Havana
cigars for this year reach a grand and
inspiring total of 273,00,000. It is reas-
onable to suppose, however, that the in-
crease will be larger than that estimated
above, which takes the increase for the
first three months of the year as a basis
of calculation. The increase is always
much larger during the last three months
of the year than in any other quarter,
that being marked by the great and con-
stantly increasing holiday demand. It is
not an extravagant prediction to estimate
the output of Tampaa cigars this year at
close to 3000,000,000-which will make the
output of Tampa alone far in excess of
that of the entire island of Cuba. Last
year, Tampa's cigar product exceeded that
of Havana. This year, it should exceed
the product of all of Cuba, the native home
of the clear Havana eigar.-Tampa Trib-
RAILROAD RUMORS AT DAYTONA.
Road to DeLand Is Almost Assured for the
Daytona, April 6.-Railroad rumors of
all kinds are floating in the air, and spec-
ulation on the subject is making much talk
on the street corners, in the hotel lobbies
or wherever occasion offers opportunity for
two or three men to gather discussion.
C. S. Rieman's plan, submitted by peti-
tion to the Board of County Commission-
ers at their last monthly meeting in De-
Land, to build a line to operate between
Daytona and DeLand, and offering to de-
posit a good and sufficient bond guarantee-
ing commencement of the work within
fifteen days from the time such privilege
was granted, came as a surprise to many
in our city. Gasoline propelled cars will
furnish the motive power of the new line,
should Mr. Rieman secure the desired grant
from the Board of County Commissioners.
In the meantime, the projectors of the
Central East Coast road have obtained
their charter and are steadily pushing their
interests with such corporations as they
may be concerned; so, even the "doubting
Thomases" concede that Daytona will have
another railroad in a matter of two years
or less, and it is well with us.

WANT TO RETARD PROGRESS.
Just as the attention of the whole of
Florida had been attracted to Live Oak
ad Columbia county, when the press of
the state was pointing with pride to the
accomplishments of that section, there
comes to the chain of those who believe
in progress the report that there are those
in that county who re bent on nothing
less than a blocking of what the enterpris-
ing men at the head of the affair of Su-
wannee had set out to do. The building of
good roads in that county had offered a
great deal of promise in the way of de-
velopment. The people were beginning to
see the great advantage of this project
which the men of enterprise had put forth.
But just at this time when there are those
who want to butt into politics and when
they are looking about for the chances of
making grand stand plays, it was hardly
to be expected that this commendable and
approved scheme should be the object of
attack. But the attack has come and it
spears to have been cleverly planned by
a little fellow who is evidently awaiting
to be fed at the public crib.
But there is little to be apprehended at
this late day by the friends of enterprise
and progress in Suwannee. The building
of public roads will go right on in that
county, and those who are at the head of
the great work will see the good results
they have achieved long after the knock-
ers and demagogues have been forgotten.
Suwannee county and Live Oak are going
to grow, and some of the stumbling and
moss-covered blocks will have to stand
by and watch the good work proceed.

The master builder does not, however,
have things his own way. There is a fixed
rate of wages for each trade, which be

defined, above which the employer must
not go only by a special permit from the
government, which permit will arrange for
all overtime being paid for. Once a mae
is engaged on a piece of work he reeelves
his pay whether he works or not, so long
as the work he is engaged upon is not com-
pleted. Loss of time by ram or any other
unavoidable reason is borne by the owner,
not the contractor. Failure to conform to
the contract or to pay the workmen ren-
ders the contractor liable to be beheaded.
The owner, too, is liable to the workmen
and to the men who furnish material equal-
ly with the contractor. This is certainly
a lien law with a vengeance, for in case
of failure to pay, the government pays the
debts, confiscates the property and chops
off the heads of the owner and contractor
with no unnecessary delay.

thousand years to feel that death is noth-

not regarded with any fear by the victim
nor with special horror by the friends.
They have no time for the long drawn out
proceedings of the courts of justice in
Christian countries, since their numbers
are millions and court proceedings would
increase crime and leave no time for work.

in the gold mines. For many reasons it
became necessary to recruit from some

WILL DEEPEN CANAL.
The F. E. C. Railway Digging From Indian
River to the Prairies.
The Fort Pierce News in its issue of
last Friday, contains the following:
"The people of this section have been
anxiously awaiting some movement on the
part of the land departments of the rail-
road and canl, toward the deepening and
proper completion of the drainage canal,
trom the Indian River to the prairie coun-
try west of town. When this work was
begun over a year ago, it was hoped it
would be successful in disposing of the
superfluous water in the back country and
would enable the owners of property in
that section to proceed with its develop-
"The work was not done satisfactorily,
as the fall was not sufficient to carry off
the water with any degree of rapidity,
and it was not deep enough to drain the
vast prairie, which is very fertile, and
would produce the finest kind of vegeta-
bles, potatoes, etc., if properly drained.
The land department of the Florida East
Coast Railway Company now proposes to
increase the depth of the canal several
feet, so the bottom will be at least three
feet below the level of the prairie, and
make a gradual fall, all the way down to
the edge of town, where there is a dis-
tinct drop and at present a decided rapids
in the little stream.
"To those who have watched the effect
of the work already don there is no doubt
but that this canal can be made to do the
work of draining the country west of Fort
Pierce, provided the remainder of the work
is properly dome. Civil Engineer New-
lander has run the levels twice and made
a profile of the canal, and he says there
is ample fall to carry off any amount of
water, except occasionally when there is
a big continued rain, and then it will only
remain for a few days. On his visit here
last week he was anxious to let the con-
tract for deepening the canal to some local
parties and it i likely that this ill be
done. Mule teams, with plows and scrap-
ers, could possibly be used with good effect,
the dirt being taken out every ten rods.
It cannot be done by hand, as before, as
the dirt will have to be thrown too high.
A small dredge was proposed, but the
width at the bottom would almost preclude
this, as the dredge would be too small to
sustain an arm long enough to swing the
dirt over the present high banks.
"It is to be hoped that some method
will be devised and that the work will be-
gin soon and be completed before mid-sum-
mer. Nothing will do this section more
good than the completion of this drainage
canal, in a manner that will satisfactorily
accomplish what it was originally designed
To Erect Fertilizer Plant.
The Jefferson Fertilizer Co., of Birming-
ham, Ala., reported last week as incorpo-
rating with a capital stock of $250,000,

Jacksonville Will Have Another Important
Street Car Line.
Jacksonville is to have a new street car
line and when the County Commissioners
at their regular monthly meeting this
week granted the right of way, the first
ntep towards the building of the line was
Mr. George W. Clark, the owner of Pan-
ama Park, and other prominent business
men who have associated themselves with
him, will build the road. The new line
will extend from the intersection of Main
street and the city limits, run along Main
street to Lawton avenue at Panama Park,
then east on Lawton avenue to Buffalo
avenue, to Virginia street, then to Cum-
mer's road and thence south along this
road to Talleyrand avenue, to the city
The value of such a road, both for pleas-
ure and convenience, can hardly be over-
estimated. This the County Commission-
era realized, and, after the formal petition
for the right of way had been presented,
granted the request of Mr. Clark, after
only a short discussion.
Mr. Clark thanked the Board for its ac-
tion and announced later that work on the
line would be started as soon as certain
details had been rounded out.
Mr. Clark's Petition.
The petition of Mr. Clark for the right
of way as presented to the Commissioners,
reads as follows:
"To the Board of County Commissioners:
"Gentlemen-Your petitioner, George W.
Clark, for himself and associates, respect-
fully represents to your honorable body
that they are desirous of forming a com-
pany for the purpose of erecting, operat-
ing and maintaining a car line, to be pro-
pelled by electricity, steam or other motive
power, for the carrying of freight, or pas-
sengers, or both, along, over, and upon
the following roads or highways within
the limits of Duval county:
"Extending from the intersection of the
city limits and Main Street, thence along
Main Street to Lawton avenue, at Panama
Park, thence easterly on Lawton avenue
to Buffalo avenue, to Virginia street, to the
county road, commonly known as the Cum-
mer road, and thence south along the said
road to Talleyrand avenue, to the city
The Right of Way.
'That the said car line should be of
great service, convenience and accomoda-
tion to all the residents lying along the
proposed road. or contiguous thereto, and
your petitioner respectfully requests your
honorable Ibdy to grant him a and his asso-
ciates a right of way over the above county
roads, or highways, and to use them for
the construction, operation and mainte-
nance of the said car line.
"And the right of way and the privilege
to place poles along the said highway, on
either side thereof, for the purpose of
springing wires and such other appliances
as may be necessary for the operation of
the said road.
"Respectfully, George W. Clark."
The petition was granted on the condi-
tions that nothing was done to obstruct
the said roads, or highways, or to inter-
fere with their use by the public. The
car line must be placed on one side of the
road only, as is the present car line to

18 THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD.
ATTRACTING ATTENTION ABROAD.
Flrida Sponge Situation Referred to by
New York Paper.
The Oil, Paint and Drug Reporter, of
New York, comments as follows on the
Florida sponge situation:
The Turkish government's action in
closing the Mediterranean beds has caused
a large number of the Greek fishermen
to invade our Florida waters, where they
have succeeded in making some very large
catches. The Florida State Legislature
has been appealed to in the matter, and it
is hoped that this may result in the clos-
ing of the Florida fisheries for a season,
as it is believed that the beds there will
soon be depleted if unrestricted gather-
ing of sponge by the Greek fishermen con-
tinues, and largely destroyed, as has been
the case in Mediterranean waters, unless
prompt action is taken by the government.
A drop in the Florida market has taken
place since the arrival of the Greeks, some
500 in number, who are intent on exploit-
ing the deeper waters of the Gulf in quest
of the Valuable Rock Island sheepswool
sponge. The Greeks continue the old
world method of diving in regulation div-
ing suits, as accustomed to do in the Med-
iterranean Sea, and have met with remark-
able success so far in Florida waters.
One craft on a twenty-one days' trip gath-
ered twelve hundred bunches, or about six
thousand dollars' worth of sponge. The
old Florida sponge hookers are naturally
very much alarmed over the influx of so
many Greek fishermen, and some express
tue opinion that a serious clash will occur
thi summer if these conditions continue,
as the vocation of the Florida fishermen
is in jeopardy. Should new beds of sheeps-
wool sponge be discovered by the Greek
deep-water divers, it will doubtless cause
an easier tone to the market and lower
prices, while the closing of the Mediter-
ranean beds will tend to stiffen the market
