There. Is not the least danger that
the value of Florida land is "going to
be affected by rumors,, by speeches on
the "floor of the House of Representa Representatives
tives Representatives in Congress, "by quarrels among:
subordinates -In one of the numerous
bureaus in Washington, or by Investi Investigations
gations Investigations held by congressional commit-
tees or by "scare head" lines in western
newspapers, contorting the 7 truth-p
when stuff can be raised on this same
Floridaland like they raise In Man-?
atee county and people go down there
to see it.
'I was down there not long ago and
saw celery, lettuce and potatoes in the
fields. and tomatoes being planted,
From the car windows this land looks
about as unprepossessing as any other
tropical Jungle, but when cleared and
cultivated this Florida land produces
bigger than any other land anywhere
else on earth except in some other
spots in Florida.
CeleryV raised on this land has
brought this season $3.50 per crate.

i running from $8X0 to $1,300 per car.

Lettuce has Drought from $500 to $90fr
a "car, and the yield In potatoes prom promises
ises promises big at top prices, and the prospect
for a good crop of tomatoes Is fine.
sIt costs no more than sixty cents per
crate to raise this celery that is now
selling for $3.50. One acre of this
Florida land will yield from $900 to
$1,400 per acre in profit, the variation

being due to weather conditions and
care and cultrvatibn. Two crops per
year can be made on each acre.

Now if anybody thinks that any-

thing that comes out in Congress or
anywhere else is going to affect the
prices of Florida land among those

who come to see it let him go most

anywhere In Florida and try to buy


I was down In the -Manatee section

just about two years ago and when

there I was offered a tract of land

containing one hundred and ninety-

five acres at $30 an acre. My friend.

Jack Lamb, who is now running for

sheriff of Manatee county, was the

"man who made the offer, 'suggesting

that I come down there and go In with
him to handle this land at this price
and share in the profits above it. I

did not go, but when I went back there

again last week Jack told me that he
had sold one hundred acres of that
same land for $100 an acre and had
not set any price on the other ninety ninety-five
five ninety-five acres. .
About a month before this I was
passing through the northern part of
Dade, county. Across the main street
of the village of Dania was suspended
a canvas banner bearing this legend:
"705 carloads of truck shipped from
this point last season, which brought
to the, farmers who raised it $306,000."
Now Dania is a very small place,
but this is a very big record and there

are lots of places along the east 'coast

shipping just about as much.

These two examples of what Fior

ds land will do gathered by personal

observation on the east coast and the

west coast must not be considered as

strange or unusuaL Coming up from

Manatee last week, a man got on the
train at Ocala and told me that the

cabbage crop and the melon crop of

Marion county promised big and that

they expected to get $1,000 an acre out

of each of them. Everybody knows

that Sanford gets rich on celery and

lettuce, Gainesville thrives on cab

bages, Hastings has grown into a city

on Irish potatoes, Starke and Like

land have waxed and grown fat on

strawberries, Quincy has been turned

Into a commercial center on tobacco

and that Baker county land, which

used to be considered rather poor, is

now producing along with .the best In

the other counties.

Oh, no!, Florida land cannot be hurt

by rumors when the actual demonstra

tion of those who come to see in ev

ery county In the state, from Escam

bia to Dade, shows top prices for

adapted crops carefully cultivated.

need is not measures but men. It has
always been in the power of the peo peo-.

As many people say, Claude L'Engle

has a grouch; a constant disposition to

kick 'and knock. .Among the Sunny

Jims whose motto is. "Don't, knock.

boost," and among the large tribe of

the timid and well-satisfied. who be

- lieve in letting- well enough alone, as

long as their own particular oven are

ungored, he Is not popular".

His latest outrage is exposing the
scheme of certain men, already well

- supplied with their world's goods to
make a. sixty per cent profit out of the
people : of Jacksonville on lands that
. the said people need for municipal
: docks, in which docks. It may be said
in passing, all the. people of this part

of the state are interested.

- Some time last year, Claude broke

loose with the story that nearly all of

the waterfront of Jacksonville was In

' the hands of one I corporation, which

was acting the dog in the manger to
such an extent that the government
' engineers were, about to recommend

, the discontinuance of all improve

' provements to the port. Jacksonville

has two large daily papers, but their
readers heard nothing of this state of
affairs until Claude IEngle's Dixie

disclosed" them.

A movement was started to secure
" the; only remaining river front, land in
; the city limits and build municipal
docks thereon. Certain capitalists got
t busy at the same time and bought

; most of the land needed for the said
docks. When, the ? sub-committee of

' the board of trade, which was engi

- neerlng the movement, called on these

gentlemen to make a deal for the city,

the said gentlemen; offered to part
S'Wlth the property for the mild Increase

of 19 per cent In six months.

One is surprised at their moderation.

That they only asked 0 per cent.

, when they might as well have called
: for three or four hundred, should be a

-matter of congratulation.

' But now comes L'Engle and rudely

4- denounces these gentlemen as earn

, tvori.; otherwise bloodsuckers, and re

coramends the city of Jacksonville to

use Its power of eminent domain, con

; denra the said property and put on it a

price considered reasonable by disln

' teres ted parties.

, L'Cngle is a nuisance. Why doesn

ha procure a nice little graft, settle
awn to 'the enjoyment of it and let

ether people's grafts" alone.

to his lese-majestle, pointing at a

black cloud rolling over the top of the

range. "It'll be a cloudburst sure.

By 'this time Kirkby was on his

until it was high in the heavens. Now

the clouds were already approaching

the noonday sun. Kirkby was alive to
the situation at once. He had the rare

ability of men of action of awakening

with all his faculties at instant com

mand. He did not have to rub his
eyes- and wonder where he was, and
speculate as to what was to be done.'
The moment that his eyes, following

Pete's: outstretched arm, discovered

the black mass of clouds he ran to toward
ward toward Mrs. Maltland and standing on
no ceremony-he shook her vigorously
by the shoulder.

"We'll" have to run for our lives.

Pete needed no unrinjr. He was off

like a shot in the direction of the im improvised

from their pickets and started them
up the steep trail that led down from

the hogback to the camp by the wa

ter's edge. He also tried to start the
burros he had just rounded up in the
same direction. Some of them would
go and some of them would hot. He

had his hands full in an instant.
Meanwhile Kirkby did not linger by
the side of Mrs. Maltland. With in incredible
credible incredible agility for so bid a man he
ran' over to the tent where the stores
were kept and began picking out such
articles of provision as he could
easiest carry.
"Come over here, Mrs. Maltland,"
he cried. "We'll have to carry up on
the hill somethin' to keep us from

starvln till we get back to town. We
hadn't orter camped in this yere
pocket noways, but who'd ever expect

ed anything like this now?"
: "What do you feart" asked the
woman, joining him as she spoke and
waiting for his directions.
"Looks to me like a cloudburst,"
was the answer. "Creek's pretty full

now, an' If she does break everything

below yere 11 go to hell on a run."

It was evidence of his perturbation
and anxiety that he used such lan language,
guage, language, which, however. In the emer emer-geney

to the refined ear of Mrs. Maltland.
"Is it possible?" she exclaimed.

"Taint only possible, it's sartln.

small piece of canvass, tied it up and

handed it to her. "That'll be for you

adding, "An' this Is mine."
"Oh, let us hurry," cried Mrs. Malt

flying clouds, now obscuring the sun,

and rolled over the camp.

"Were got time enough ylt, an answered

their chances. "Best git yer slicker

Mrs Maltland ran to her own tent
and soon came out with sou'wester

and yellow oilskins completely cover covering

"You can stay with them," answered
Kirkby, dryly, "but if what I think 's

Great God, here she comes."

As he spoke there was a sudden.

swift downpour of rain, not in drops,

but in a torrent. Catching up his own
pack and motioning the woman to do

likewise with her load, Kirkby caught
her by the hand, and half led, half

dragged her up the steep trail from
the brook to the ridge which bordered
i the side of the canon. The canon was

keep himself and companion from los losing
ing losing their footing and falling down Into
the seething tumult below.

The tents went down in an instant.

Where there had been a pleasant bit

of meadow land was now a muddy,
tossing lake of black water. Some of
the horses and most of the burros

which Pete had been unable to do any

thing with were engulfed in a mo

ment. The two on the mountain side

could see them swimming for dear life
as they swept down the canon. Pete

himself, with a few of the animals,
was already scrambling up to safety.

Speech was impossible between the

noise of the falling rain and the in incessant
cessant incessant peals of thunder, but by per

sistent gesture, old Kirkby urged the
terrified, trembling woman up the
trail until' they finally reached the
top. of the hog back, where under the
poor shelter of the stunted pines they

joined Pete with such of the horses as

he had been able to drive up. Kirkby,

taking a thought for the morrow, not

ed that there were four of them,
enough to pull the wagon if they
could get back to it.

After the first awful deluge of the

cloudburst it moderated slightly, but
the hard rain came down steadily, the

wind rose as well, and In spite of
their oilskins they were soon wet and
cold. It was Impossible to make a
fire,' there was no place for them to
go, nothing to be done. They could
only remain where they were and
wait. After a half hour of exposure

to the merciless fury of the storm, a

thought came suddenly to Mrs. Malt

land. She leaned over and caught the
frontiersman by his wet sleeve. See
lng that she wished to speak to him,
he bent his head toward her lips.

"Enid," she cried, pointing down the
canon. She had not thought before of
the position of the girl.
Kirkby, who had not forgotten her,

but who had Instantly realized that he

could do nothing for her, shook his
head, lifted his eyes and solemnly
pointed his finger up to the gray
skies. He had said nothing to Mrs.
Maltland before. What was the use

of troubling her.

"God only kin help her." he cried.
"She's beyond the help of man."
Ah, Indeed, old trapper, whence

came the confident assurance of that
dogmatic statement? For as it chanc chanced,
ed, chanced, at that very moment the woman
for whose peril your heart was wrung
was being lifted out of the torrent by
a man's hand! And, yet, who shall

say that the old hunter was not right,
and that the man himself, as men of

old have been, was sent from God?

'It can't be,-" began Mrs. Maltland

in great anguish for the girl she had

grown to love.

"Etshe seed the storm an realized

what It was, an had sense enough to

climb up the canon wall," answered

the other, "she won't be no worse

Mrs. Maltland had only to look

down Into the seething cauldron to

understand the possibility of that "If.'

. "Oh." she cried, 'let us pray for her

that she sought the hills."

"Tve been a doln it," said the old

man gruffly.

ceased, a heavy mist lay on the moun

three children, joined the wretched
trio above the camp. Maltland, wild

with excitement and apprehension,

He paused there. It wasn't neces

Maltland walked to the edge of the
trail and looked down into the valley.
It had been swept clean of the camp.
Rocks had been rolled over upon the

meadow land, trunks of trees torn

up by the roots had lodged against

them. It was a scene of desolate and

miserable confusion and disaster.

"Oh, Robert, don't you think she

may be sate?" asked Mrs. Maltland

"There's just a chance, I think, that
she may have susplcioned the storm

"But she may be In the canon.
"If she's In the canon twont make

no difference to her Wether we finds

her tomorrer or next day or next

Maltland groaned in anguish.
'1 can't stay here Inactive," he per

sisted stubbornly.

"It's a hard thing, but we got to

wait till mornJn. Ef she got out of
the canon and climbed up c the hog

as well make ourselves as comfortable

"Isn't it possible that she may bare

"Possible, yes, but
"We won't give p hopet ma'am,"

said Kirkby, "until tomorrer w'en

we ve had a look at the canon."

By this time the others joined the

party. Phillips and Bradshaw showed

the stuff that was m them. They Im

mediately volunteered to go down the

canon at once, knowing little or noth-

ng of Its dangers and 'Indifferent to

what they did know- Tfcwt as Kirkby
had pointed out, th stittapt was
dearly impossible. MaSSud bitterly

reproached himself for having allow allowed
ed allowed the girl to go alone, and In those
elf-reproaches old Klrkty joined.

They were toot wtt 3 cold to

sleep. There was no sUr and It

was not until early In the morning

they succeeded in kindling a fire.

Meanwhile the men talked the situa

tion over very carefully. They were

two days journey from, the wagons.

t was necessary that the women and

children should be taken back at once.
Kirkby hadn't been able to. save much

more than enough to eat to .get, them,
back to a ranch or settlement,, and on
very short rations ,- at best.- It was
finally decided that George and Pete
and Mrs.- Maltland, the two girls and

the youngster, should go back to the

wagon, drive to the nearest settle

ment, leave the women and 1 then re return
turn return on horseback with all speed to
meet Maltland and Kirkby, who would

meanwhile search the canon.

The two men froav the east had to

go back with the others, although
they pleaded gallantly to be allowed

to remain with the two who were to

take up the hunt for Enid. Maltland

might have kept them with hlra, but
that meant retaining a larger portion
of the scanty supplies that had been

saved and he was compelled against
his will to refuse their requests. Leav

ing barely enough to subsist Maltland

and Kirkby for three or four days, or

until the return of the relief party.

the groups separated at daybreak.

"Oh, Robert," pleaded bis wife, as

he kissed her good bye, "take care of
yourself, but find Enid."

"Yes," answered her husband, T

shall, never fear, but I must find the
dear girl or discover what has become

of her."

There was not time for further

leave taking. A few handclasps from

man. to man and then Robert Malt

land, standing in the mldBt of the

group, bowed his head In the sunny
morning, for the sky again was clear,
and poured out a brief prayer that
God would prosper them, that they
would find the child and that they
would all be together again in health
and happiness. And without another
word, he and Kirkby plunged down to

the side of the canon, the others tak

ing up their weary march homeward
with sad hearts and in great dismay.

A very pleasant event took place at
Belle view Saturday evening in the re reception
ception reception given In honor of three newly
wedded couples, the brides of Whom
passed most of their girlhood years In
that pretty town. It set an epoch for
Belleview as the first : event' of Its
class in the City of Oaks. ; c
The reception took place in the town
hall, which was prettily decorated for
the occasion with pear blossoms, ferns
and moss. The reception began at an
early hour and by 8 o'clock the hall
was thronged with the friends of the
young people.
The following appropriate musical
program was rendered.
Violin and piano Professor Rlck-
ards and Miss Rlckards.
Solo by Mrs. E. A. Davenport, "To
theEnd of the World With You."
Violin and piano by Mr. and Mrs. W.
S. Cogswell.
Piano duet by Mrs. I. I. Strong and
Miss Rickards.
Violin and piano, by Professor Rlck
ards and Miss Rickards.
Solo, "Little Boy Blue," by Mrs. B.
A. Davenport.
Miss Rickards then took the piano
and played Mendelssohn's wedding
march in, a minor key, while the young
couples received the congratulations
of their friends. In the receiving line
were Mr. and Mrs. E. A. Davenport.
Mr. and Mrs. L I. Strong and Mr. and
Mrs. Chas. J. Leitner. All the brides
are well known In Ocala Mrs. Strong,
nee Miss Edna Nichols, is the bright
and pretty little lady who has written
so many newsy letters for the Star in
the past two years, and became a
bride a week ago. The reception was
originally planned in her honor, but
she and her friends decided that it
would add greatly to the charm of the
occasion to have it include the other
brides of the season. Mrs. Davenport
was Miss Bessie Cogswell, who for
two winters taught a kindergarten in
this city, much endeared herself to her
pupils and won the esteem of their
parents. Mrs. Leitner was Miss Alice
Polly, and forsook her own name a few
months ago to take that of the stal stalwart
wart stalwart and popular young lieutenant of
the Ocala Rifles. They were a charm charming
ing charming trio, and with their husbands re received
ceived received many sincere wishes for happi happiness
ness happiness and prosperity from their friends.
After congratulations had been of offered
fered offered and accepted, all the guests
were called to refreshments, which
consisted of delicious and refreshing
fruit punch, and as many different j
kinds of toothsome cake as the
nary skill of Belleview could furnish. I
In discussing the delicacies, and in
pleasant conversation, the -remainder l
of the evening was passed, and all J
sought their homes wishing the young
couples many happy returns of their
wedding days. I

Truth of Their Traditions Instanced
by One Story From Annals of
the Beavers.
If we could only get at the facts of
the history of our Indian tribes, it
would be of interest to compare these
with what is related as the fortune
of most civilized nations. It is only
In tradition that the history of the In

dian lives, and only one version of
the story is ever heard. Sometimes
this Is bo true to nature that no room
for doubt can be found. Such is the
following chapter, from the annals of
the Beavers, a Canadian tribe.
One day a young chief shot his ar arrow
row arrow through a dog belonging to anoth another
er another brave. The brave revenged the
death of Jiia dogy and instantly a hun hun-dxed"bow8
dxed"bow8 hun-dxed"bow8 were drawn. Ere night
had fallen some eighty warriors lay
dead around the camp, the pine woods
rang with the lamentations of the
women: the tribe had lost its brav bravest
est bravest men.
There was a temporary truce. The
friends of the chief whose arrow had
killed the dog yet numbered some
sixty people, and it was agreed that
they should sepearate from the tribe
and seek their fortune, in the vast
wilderness lying to the south.
In the night they began their
march; sullenly their brethren saw
them depart, never to return. They
went their way to the shores of the
Lesser Slave Lake, toward the great
plains which were said to be far
southward, by the banks of the swift swift-rolling
rolling swift-rolling Saskatchewan.
The tribe of the Beavers never saw
this exiled band again, but a hundred
years later a Beaver Indian, who fol followed
lowed followed the fortunes of a white fur fur-hunter,

forts of the Saskatchewan. Strange
