Horticultural Society Meeting.
The Twenty-Second Annual Meet-
ing of the Florida State Horticultu-
ral Society will convene at Daytona
on May 18, 19, 20, 21. The meetings
of the Society have been growing in
Importance and Interest from year
'to year, and the twenty-second meet-
ing promises to be no exception to
The railroads have granted to the
members a rate of one fare plus 25
cents for the round trip, and hotels
are making a rate of from $1.00 to
$2.00. The people of Daytona are
prepariingto entertain the inemnbers
with a steamer ride on the famous
Halifax River, and also to give then
automobile rides through the beauti-
ful avenues surrounding the city.
Besides the attractions that the
Daytona people can give, the mem-
bers can enjoy all pleasures that a
beautiful beach can furnish where
both fishing and bathing can be en-
joyed between the meetings.
Any person Interested in Florida
can become a member by remitting
$1.00 to the Secretary, which will
entitle them to a certificate of mean-
bership and a copy of the proceed-
ings when they are published. Send
$1.00 to E. 0. Painter, Secretary,
Jacksonville, and be sure to send it
at least three days before the first
day of the meeting.
The one fare plus 25cts for round
trip as above is also good over the
East Coast at least for anyone who
wants to visit Daytona regardless
whether they are members of the
society or not. ErITOit.
Three or four carm of California
grapefruit arrived and prices were
rather low. The fruit is not giving
satisfaction and the trade is not
taking to it in the usual way. Re-
cent arrivals have been thick-skin-
ned, overripe and, as a rule, not as
Juicy as they should be. Quotations
were around $1.50 to $3.00. Seedlings
are in moderate supply and range
$1.00 to $2.50. Bloods sold $1.76 to
to $2.75, and St. Michaels, which
have been in moderate supply and
demand, ranged $1.66 to $3.20. There
are only a few Florida Florida Va-
lencia Lates coming. Good stock
is selling mostly around $8 to $4.00,
with some extra fancy as highly as
$6.60. The season isa about over.
Grapefruit continues in good de-
mand and the market is cleaned up
of anything desirable. Fine, reg-
ular erop fruit is selling $4.60 to $6A.(4
with a little extra fancy exceeding
these figures.-New York Packer.

Fruit and Vegetable Market.
The New York Packer of Saturday
gives following quotations on Flor-
ida products on the New York mar-
"Late Valencia Florida oranges
were in heavy receipt this week,. and
price l held steady under a good de-
mand. The 9&s and 126s were as a
rule of very fine quality and stronig-
ly competed with California oranges
of the saame siizes. 'Tlie best oranges

ent time iin 96. and 126s, are the late
Valencla.s from Florida iand some
big prices we're realized on t hese
SIzes, sollie of whirilh brought, (,on the
street, as high as $6.
-'Ree ilpts of Florida pineapples
showed a decided increase. Twenty
fours were especially eanvy, and
brought $2(a2.50. Prices on other
sites ranged from $1.765a 2 for 81s and
about $1.76 for 86s.
"r There was a free mnovemnient of
old grapefruit, with russets ranging
from $5(d-6.50 and brights, fancy,
selling up to $7.
'"Receipts of Florida tomatoes
dropped off, but the trade looks for
arrivals from new sections in a few
days. The demand for fancy toma-
toes was very good and $2.60 was
easily obtained. The bulk of the
offorings of fancy stock, however,
sold at $2, with choice selling at $1.60.
"(lreen beans brought $1(a l.A ) and
wax $1.60( 1.75. Fancy cucumbers
sold at $1.25(d 1.75 and choice $1 per
Prices on other Florida products
were: Eggplants $2(,c2.50, peppers
$1.60(<2, white squash $1.50 a crate,
and potatoes $3(a 4.
"Florida corn showed up on tihe
market this week, but some of the
receipts were so worm eaten that
they would dot bring enough to pay
freight. For good stock prices
ranged from $3(i4 per hundred.
There will really be no very great
demand for corn, until receilpts from
Florida show better quality or until
North Carolina corn starts to come."

in ,New York, Dr. Devine declared,
than *M4lton Imained in his "Hell."
Contrary to the idea tJat misery is
a retribution for a man's or his par-
ents' misdeeds, Dr. Devine stated
that It depended largely on condi-
tions which society could control.
Dr. Devine discussed at length the
( statement of a probation officer that
nine-tehths of the misery in New
I York could be traced to the social
evil. He pointed out the fact that
since the framing of the irodel law
In 19i0 by William Baldwin and the
Committee of Fifteen to' protect the
children In the tenements there hall
not been one single conviction. Of
1,004 complaints, 811 were dismissed
by the Tenement House Department,
274 were dismissed by the Corpora-
tion Counsel, only 9 were brought
to trial, and they 'were acquitted.
* "The complete uninforcement is a
most unfortunate breakdown of mu-
nalepal government," Dr. Devine de-
clared and he said that the part of
the police courts in it was "a miser.
able fIasoo."--New York Times.

George M. Bowers of the Bureau of
Fisheries in Washington.
"I heard a group of anglers boasting

some time, said -pilotly:

"'What's the use wondering about
that? Nothing definite's known,' said
a trout Asherman rudely. 'Boy's,' he
went om, she Utipped the beam-'
"'Look here,' the grave man inter.-
rupted, 'I know what became of that
"'Humph! What?' said the trout
"'For the rest of his life he made
a bore of himself telling all the other

It was repted sen weeks ao
that seven of the leading hotels of
New York cdty, owing ta complaints
of guests, had dscontinudd the use of
California grown naval oranges sub-
stituting therefore the juicy and well
flavored oranges so liberally supplied
this season from Florids. The Call-
fornia fruits were criticized as too dry
and tasteless. Patrons of these great
land expensive hotels demand the
highest quality of viands that can be
procured, and buyers are ever on the
alert for the best the market affords.
An explanation of the poor quality Is
thai several considerable quantities
of the finest appearing navals were
fronted, before picking, reaultUig in
the loss of Juice and flavor without
other distinguishable defects. There
was unusual cold in the California na-
val distrlcti about the ripening sea-
son and it may the that oranges were
shipped east that should not have
been put on the market, bu there Is
a growing suspicion that the eatin
quality of the California naval orantit,
even at its best, will not bear compar-
ison with the choicer seed-containing
varieties from Florida. For the first
time since the calamitous freeze ot
1894 that all but annihilated the eas-
tern orange Industry, we have had
Florida oranges enough 'to supply ful-
ly the principal eastern markets.
They been so satisfactory that the
seedless navals were barely salable,
Notwithstanding their great size and
fine appearance, and In fact were not
offered In quantity until the Florida
crop was practically sold out. The
commercial qualities of the naval
oranges are admirable. It Is an ex-
cellent shipper and a goo4 keeper un-
der ordinary conditions of handling
and exposure for sale. Dealers and
peddlers much prefer It to othem, but
consumers have grown restless as re-
gards its generally Insipid flavor and
discriminate in favor of the more
palatable kinds when they may be
had. As the navels are long keepers
they are now held until the Florida-.
are cleaned up and only the Mediter-
ranean imports remain to be com-
peted with. Occasionally navals are
Juicy and pleasant enough to be com-
pared to the best eastern fruits, but
on the whole the variety ase rown In
the. pacific coast region is likely to
rank with the Klefer pear, the Ben
Davis apple, the Klbertfjeach and
the Concord grape-all W shippers
and cheaply produced, but of ordinary
or inferior quality.-The Rural New
Won't Slight a Good Friend.

Prominent men in Pensacola and
in other cities of the south, as well
as the north and east, are working
to secure executive clemency for Man-
ager W. S. Harlan of the Jackson
Lumber company at Lockhart, who,
unless a pardon is granted him, will
have to serve eighteen months in the
federal prison at Atlanta, and in ad-
di ion pay a fine of $5,000. That every-
thing possible will be done to secure
a pardon for Mr. Harlan goes without
saying, as he is one of the most
prominent and wealthy lumbermen of
the Eouth, and his family one of the
most honored in the country, his un-
cle being one of the supreme court
justices of the United States. In ad-
dition to being manager of the JacK-
son Lumber company, which num-
bpra among its stockholders men
prominent in political and business
world, Mr. Harlan is himself a heavy
holder of stock in the concern. The
fine of $5,000 would be readily paid,
if the prison sentence is commuted.

fast being harvested and shipped to
the northern markets. Up to the pres-

estimated that another eighty thous-

a total of about one hundred and fifty

last year's crop. The prices hold up
well, most of the growers selling their

"A .000 house w,8 sold at Port
Whipple, near Prescott, a few days
ago for $180." said George H. Mor-
gan, a lawyer of P"eecott, Arlz. 'It
was known as the old Gen. ,Crook
house. lnd was owned by the Gov-
ernment Gen. Crook occupied the
house' for several months, and it was
on just a windy day as that of the
sale that Gen. Crook rode away from
the house in March 1885.
"The building was a nondescript
style of architecture, constructed of
stucco, adobe and frame. It was
roomy and comfortable, with lofty
ceilings and bsy windows, through
whicb could be seen the snow cover-
ed peaks of the mountains on one
side and Thumb Butte and the city
of Prescott on the other. The house
eontilned more than 40.000 feet of
lumber, and among other modern con-
veniences it had two bathtubs.
"While Gen. Crook was the ocen-
.pant of the house he was engaged
In a long and diicult campaign
against the lndlans. The old building
Is still well preserved. When the auc-
tioneer announced the sale the bid-
ding started at $50, and this figure
was raised from time to time, until
it reached $180. at whi.h sum It was
knocked down to the proprietor of .-
hotel. What the purchaser purposes
to do with the house I don't know, but
he was told ehat it must *be removed
shortly, as the Government would no
longer be responsible for its safety.
"Ibe house cost probably more than
$90,000. Every foot of the lumber in
it was freighted from Los Angeles at
a cost of 10 cents a pound. It was
considerably enlarged after Gen
Crook left it. The latter's successor,
Gen. Kgutz. lived in itfor a long time,
but It has nct been occupied for a
number of years. At the time of its
construction a guard of soldiers had
to patrol the vi-cinity constantly to
keep away the Indians. There was
not a person at the sale who did not
express regret that the Government

Of the many Utneal seepatons
tetowed by women, ebbablM ttse most
crtious, od, by no mans Ie least
interesting; is that pf the ooekl time-
keeper of London, to whom practical-
ly every big watch and clock maker
in the metropolis pays a fee once a
week to learn the correct time, says
"What is more," said Miss Belle-
ville, tft woman In question, recently,
"my father and mother before me
earned a very good income by pro-
viding London with the correct time.
As a matter of fact, mray curious little
bushiese originated some seventy
years ago. In those days it was ex-
tremely difficult to obtain the exact
time fit London. The pricipeal watch-
and clock makers 'had nothing to guide
them. If they sent to the Greenwleh
Observatory there was no outside
clock, and the department, of course,
did not exist for the purpose of sup-
plying watchmakers with the time.
"Ultimately Mr. Pond, the astron-
omer royal of the period, was ap-
proached and asked If anything could'
be done. My father, John Heary
Belleville, was at that time chef as-
sistant of the astronomer royal, and
also a ward of his, and Mr. Pond sug-
gested to him that on certain days my
father should take around the right
time to London firms by means of a
"This my father did, the firms pay-
ing him a stipulated amount per an-
num, and the Innovation proved so
successful that, at the time of his
*death, he was drawing an Income
from this source of between 400
and 500 a year. After his death my
mother was granted the privilege of
having her chronometer corrected ait
Greenwich whenever she pleased, in
order that she might carry on the
business of timekeeper, and when she
gave it up in 1892 I took her place,
and have carried on the business ever
since, with the permission of Sir Wil-
liam Christie. the present astronoTmer
Every Monday morning Miss Belle-
ville goes from Maidenhead, where
she resides, to the Observatory at
Greenwich, and is there given an of-
ficial document saying that her
chronometer differs from mean time
by. so many seconds and tenths of sec.
onds. Such a favor is granted to no
other person, and, armed with this
exclusive credential. -Miss Belleville
sallies forth to correct the timepieces
She has about forty customers is
the city. and to each she repairs in
turn and permits them to correct their
time in accordance with that of her
own chronometer anti the official doc-
ument. And from the. forty custom-
ers whom Miss Belleville visits for
this purpose the rest of Indon gets
its time, for the customers include
such firms as Dent's-the makers of
lig Ben-Benson's, etc.
To the "Tit-Bits" man Miss Belle-
ville showed the chronometer which
enables her to carry on her unique
business. It is a watch of the "tur-
nip" type, and of very venerable ap-
pearance. Its history is decidedly in-
"It was made," said its owner, "iu
1835 by Arnold, one of the most fa-
mous watchmakers that ever lived, for
the Duke of Sussex, a son of George
i1I. After possessing it a short time
the noble owner discarded it because
it was too clumsy, and my father
bought it at a fancy price. At that
tiIV the chronometer"ad a gold case,
b my father had it replaced by a sil-
ver one, as he had to visit many Lon-
don slums, and thought it would be
safer if It looked less imposing.
"Is my business still a success, you
ask? Oh, yes. otherwise I should not
carry It on. You see, although there
are some firms which have had their
oloeks electrically synchroaised,

part of the state was, in some cases,
three weeks getting to Jacksonville,
on route to northern markets, and
did not bring enough to pay freight,

time, would ship from here one day

TRICK OF BRETON WRECKERS.
How They Lured Mariners to Destruc-
tion on a Dangerous Coast.
Along this dangerous coast the
hard hearted "Pagani" or wreckers
had their settlements. Many are the
vessels that have been lured to de-
struction by their false lights; many
are the drowned whbo met-their deaths
through the treachery of those to
whom they looked for help. The
Pagani were regarded with great aver-
slon by the people of neighboring vll-
"ageas, ibut they knew no shame.
A favorite device was to fasten a
lantern to a Imll's borne and then tio
the animal's head to his forefeet and
drive him along the cliffs. The
stumbling movements of the poor
beast agitated the lantern in such a
manner that to those at sea It re-
sembled the light of a ship pitching
and tossing on the waters. Other
vessels would feel that they could sail
