AN UNCONQUERABLE HOSPITALITY

Lay Noabke l*akds Cmnmede With Its


As a rule people moving to a State to make
'their permanent home desire to know some-
thing about the State capital. Florida's cap-
ital city is little known to the new settlers in
this State and they, as well as all readers of
The Record contemplating moving to Florida,
will be interested in the following pen-picture
of the historic old city, written by Mrs. Flor-
once B. Gorman, for the Christmas number
of the Pensacola Journal:
The exchange of fags between the United
States and Spain, a ceremony which formally
placed Florida under the protection of the
former government, took place in 18121, and
in June of the year following at the first
meeting in Pensaeola of the legislative coun-
cil of Florida. Dr. William H. Simmons. of St.
Augustine, and John Lee Williams, of Pensa-
cola, were appointed a committee to select a
capital site for the new territory.
Meeting in what is now known as Leon
county, the commissioners soon decided upon
the old Selds which had been abandoned by
the Tallahasaee Indians at the time of Jack-
son's raid on the Fowl Towns. "The Oclock-
ense and Tallahassee lands," Mr. Williams
wrote, "far exceed my expectations. Every
vegetable cultivated here is luxuriant, the
cotton Sields exceed by half any I have seen
before, and the sugar came is better than the
Miss sippi ground affords." In the matter
of climate and fertility the Tallahassee coun-
try now, as then, cannot be surpassed, and for
beauty and diversity of scenery it is unexcell-
ed in Florida. High, rolling hills, fertile val-
leys of rich, loamy soil over a sub-soil of clay,
and beautiful lakes filled with many varie-
ties of fish, make this section one of beauty
and wealth.
%%o Pet oapiUtl Bueding.
The first capital building was a log house,
hastily erected on the southeast corner of the
Capitol square for the meets of the legisla-
S tive council. This log structure was once a
refuge for the women and children of the
hamlet from an anticipated attack from a
wandering band of Indians, who had been
killing, burning and devastating in the sur-
rounding country. Enjoining upon them the
necessity for perfect quiet, mothers clasped
their little ones in their arms, and, through
the fear-Slled darkness, fled to the capitol,
around which the men were gathered for their
protection. The Indians, however, were dis-
persed before reaching Tallahassee and the
next day the frightened inhabitants returned
to their homes.


Indeed, Tallahassee was neyer attacked,
though through several years frequent alarms
kept the people in an unpleasant state of ap-
prehension. Often the sudden sound of a
musket shot would cause a panic. At one of
these times a saintly old lady, after tearing
off a gentleman's coattails in her terrified
flight to the upper story of the house, fell
upon her knees and piously exclaimed, "Lord
Jesus, receive my spirit." She had mistaken
her own daughter, who was in close pursuit,
for a fiendish warrior, with tomahawk and
scalping knife, and she already in imagina-
tion felt his hand entwined in her hair and
the keen edge of his knife drawn across her
forehead.
Later on in the history of Tallahassee, when
the hatchet was buried between the white
settlers and the remnant of red men left in
the vicinity, Indians were frequent visitors to
the town, where they had many friends among
the whites. It is a matter of record that they
were law abiding and peaceable, since in the
frequent trials held in the courts during that
period of turbulence and violence an Indian's
name figures but once.
Ptanee Murat. Nephew of Napoleon.
Many dominant and interesting personali-
ties have taken their place in the history of
Tallahassee. Eminent jurists, politicians and
men of brawn and brain have come and gone,
leaving their mark upon the political, social
and industrial life of the Capital City. Among
them, perhaps, the most picturesque, was the
French prince, Achille Murat, nephew of the
great Napoleon. The interest taken in this
scion of royalty, however, was evidently ex-
cited by the romantic conditions of misfortune
and exile which surrounded him, and not by
any special claim to popularity or regard.
Prince Murat is described by a man who
'knew him personally as a "Frenchman con-
ducted on a grand scale. He was tall and
corpulent to an extent that made him almost
formless. He was gluttonous and a wineblb-
ber, and when the wine ran short stronger
beverages supplied the shortage." But it
seems that the prince was not too self-en-
grossed to be insusceptible to the tender pas-
sion. "Cupid, the sly urchin, let fly an arrow
that somehow passed through the thick inter-
leaves of flesh, and stuck at least into the en-
folding fat about his heart. The result was
that his name stands next to head in the mar-
riage record book in the probate office at
Tallahassee. It reads, "Achille Murat and
Catherine D. Gray."


Mrs. Gray was a beautiful and faminelS*
widow, daughter of Byrd C. Willis, a wealthy
and aristocratic planter, who came here from
Virginia. In the public library at Tallahassee
hang portraits of this couple, and there is
also to be found there a gilded chair, uphol-
stered in green velvet and adorned with earr-
ings of the royal fleur-de-lis, which was once
a part of the furniture of the Tuiflele. The
emperor sent it over here, together with other
household necessities, to lend some somblen
of princely state to the domeste mimage of
his exiled relative.
The Prince's BussaimL
In his insatiable search for new dishes
wherewithal to satisfy the cravings of his
abnormal appetite, Prince Murat was soee-
times led to choose strange viania. He vsad
to tell of himself the following story. Os
first arriving at his country place he observed
a "turkey buzzard" sailing about ovrbea,
and gave orders that it should be shot and
served for his dinner. But the toughness of
the "bird" when prepared resisted even the
sharp blade of his carving knife, so it was
sent back to the cook with orders to have it
boiled tender for a later meal. But it till re-
sisted all efforts to carve it. The prince, how-
ever, persisted in his efforts to eat it, oaly to
find, as he used to say with maane a gr
shrug and gesticulation and a facial espe-
sion of utter disgust:
"Dees tur-kee, he vas no good! I tr-r-y
'eem bake, I tr-r-y 'eem boil, I tr--y 'eem
fricasee-but see tur-r-kee-boozard sea mn
good-bah! non! non! non!" -
The Firt White Cha
The first home in Tallahassee was built in
1824. The first white child born there wa.
the late Mrs. Ellen Call Long. daughter oa
Hon. Richard K. Call, one of FlorIdas earsl
eat colonial governors. Mrs. LAmn, up to thiM
time of her death, lived at the "Orove,'" [
mansion celebrated in story as belas, thi
home of the "Tallahassee GirL." TM. mma
sion was built by Governor Call, and is a per
fect specimen of aid colonial architecture.
One by one the original inhabitants of the
city have passed away. But one now fomain
of those who were born in the city In the
days when the Indians were on the warpathj
and the white settlers slept with loaded rit
always within reach of his hand. Many of
the old customer have become traditleos ait
but one distinctive trait remains to co-meew
the people of today with the people of a for
mer generation-their warm-hearted bes-
tality. Sidney Lanier says:
An UncoMquerable n ne.ama. .
"The repute of these people for hospitality
was a matter of national renews bsebra tha
war between the States; and even the dresde.
ful reverses of that cataclysm appear to hav4,
spent their force in vain against this feature.
of Tallahassee manners; for much testion
since the war-to which the writer cheerfully
adds his own-goes to show that it exists un-.
impaired. Geneuine hospitality of this sort Is
indeed as unconquerable as Seno's problem et
Achilles and the Tortoise is unanswerable.
The logic of it is that if there is enough fo-
ten there is certainly enough for eleves; ands
if enough for eleven, enough for twelve, and
so on ad infinitum; and this reasoning bha
such a mysterious virtue in it, that it hasb
compassed among good-hearted folk mimy a
repetition of the loaves and fishes."

tOft. 9LOtIDA' PlINANCIAL AND UMDUM RIAL RECORD.

DECEMBER IN W MDA.
Floridal the finest state in the Union, Just
to think the 19th day of December you can
have your table loaded down with all kinds of
vegetables such as cabbage, Irish potatoes,
sweet potatoes, sweet peppers, cucumbers,
eggplants, turnips, lettuce and now in a short
while will be eating English peas fresh from
the garden and also strawberries will soon be
in abundance. Florida is the best State aad
Hernando the best county to live in.-
Brooksville Southern Argus.


FIA)RIDA LEADS ALL STATES.
Some one said many years ago that "Cotton
Is King." Secretary of Agriculture J. Ster-
ling Morton, during Grover Cleveland's last
adTinistratioa, changed the sentiment to
"Corn Is King and the Hog His Heir Appar-
ent." Another change is now suggested:
Flofida Is both King and Queen of the Re-
public.
The State has the resources and the clim-
ate., and nothing is grown north of Mason's
and Dixon's line that cannot be grown within
the borders of Florida, with the possible ex-
ception of wheat.
*orida produces the cotton, the corn and
the hog, and the year of incessant labor If
one seeks it. There is nothing short in Flor-
ida, but frills, and if such are sought Mexico
or Guatamala are suggested. One is not kill-
ed off by torrid or frigid weather, and the
State is good for three to five crops of profit
every year. The fruit crop south of the frost
belt is always secure, and brings its profits
in pineapples, oranges ,grapefruit or tanger-
ine. The treeking belt is equally secure, and
brings its profits of $500 to $1,000 per acre
net. What more does one seek outside of the
sero weather of the. North, where the blood
runs cold and pneumonia dwells?
It is rare that one crop or another doesn't
hit within the borders of the State. Tomatoes,
eggplant, peppers, okra, Irish and sweet pota-
toes, have their belts, and nine years out of
ten some one or the other is winner, possibly
all of them.
SBe Island cotton, tobacco, corn, oats and
other cereals rarely ever fail in the Northern
part of the State. Florida is prolific in her
fruits. No other Btate in the Union has a
wider variety, and such always command the
highest market value.
The State lies between the Atlantic and
Gulf, and the climate is always salubrious,
always healthful, and there is no freezing or
burning out in this land of peace, progress
an4 prosperity. Summer or winter Florida
haq her sequestered spots and they are sought
asn auch as the Atlantic Coast resorts from
Portland to Baltimore.

CASAVA WILL PAY WELL.
casava has its specific as well as commer-
cial value. It is essentially a starch plant,
and grows luxuriantly in any part of Florida.
LIf corn it produces food for the hog, the
chen,. the duck, the goose and the turkey,
and these fowls and animals fatten on it as
they do on the cereals.
The camava root grows from a shrub, four
to ten feet Ina height, and the root reaches a
length of two to six feet, and in flavor is
quite like that of the potato. Indeed, it has
been used. for human food for more than half
a century, and its nutritious properties are so
great that there is no such word as starve
wherever it is grown.
Casava has is greatest profit in starch, com-
mercially speaking, and Duval county, St.
Johns sad other contiguous counties can grow
it as they grow cabbage and melons. It is a
wider that these counties do not take up this


industry and profit by it as they should.
Starch is as essential to animal nature as
bread and meat, and it is quite possible that
its health producing and life sustaining pow-
ers are equal to either of them. Wherever
there is starch there is sugar and milk, and
the saying goes that wherever there is starch
and sugar and milk there is bread and meat.
Florida is seeking to build up new indus-
tries-industries that will profit the investor,
and however meager they may appear upon
the surface, there are possibilities behind
them. It costs but little money to plant and
grow casava. The root is succulent; it makes
hens lay; cooked or crushed it is a food for
every domestic animal, and they take to it as
a duck does to water.
Two to ten acres in casava means food for
a henneryy," a dozen or more hogs, with a
good sized count of turkeys and geese thrown
in. The sands of Florida are not so bad, for
they grow everything from a peanut to a pe-
can, with distinct profit whever an investment
is made.

SOMETHING EVERY MONTH.
Manatee county horticulturalists and truck-
ers are able to have some kind of crop to ship
every month in the year.-Bradentown Jour-
nal.

START A CHICKEN RANCH.
Chinese eggs are being shipped from Shang-
hai to the Pacific coast cities and placed on
the market at 30 cents a dozen to compete
with the local product, which has risen to 70
cents a dozen. The first shipment of 116 bar-
rels, or about 5,000 dozens, Chinese eggs to
reach Seattle lasted but one day. The Chinese
eggs are larger than the ones produced here
and possess the unusual property of keeping
in good condition longer. The importation
of the eggs from China is being bitterly fought
by several so-called farmers' associations on
the Pacific coast.-Grocery World.

OPPORTUNITIES FOR FARMERS.
The farmers of Holmes county should take
the agricultural course offered free by the
State University at Gainesville, and thus ob-
tain a better knowledge of farming upon
scientific methods. The only cost there is to
It is for books and postage which will not
exceed two or three dollars, and the course is
worth many times this amount. There is a
lot about farming you probably don't know
yet and this course will be very helpful. Send
in your name.-Bonifay Advertiser.

VALUE OF TURNIPS.
Whatever may be said about turnips, a
small handful of the greens fed to hens every
day is sure to contribute liberally to the egg
harvest. And then, additionally, a small dish
of the turnips, sufficiently boiled, carefully
mashed, nicely smothered, sprinkled with salt
and pepper, and overlaid with a nice chunk of
thoroughly boiled pig jowl, Is a viand for the
human race that can hardly be overestimated
in value and cheapness.-Tampa Times.


GREAT SWEET POTATOES.
Several yields of 500 bushels of sweet pota-
toes to the acre are reported to us, and that in
the dryest fall for years. Count Leon county
on top for a good many things.-Tallahasmee
True Democrat. Everybody, who knows any-
thing at all about farming, knows that "dry
fall" is best for sweet potatoes. But, then
some editors know no more about farming
than they know about the Bible.-Jasper
News.

A FINE COLLECTION.
The latest addition to the collection of
fruits, flowers and vegetables on exhibition In
the Valley-Gazette office, and the most curi-
ous, is a South Sea Island yam weighing four-
teen pounds. This specimen was grown by
Mr. A. M. Moseley in his garden in West Kis-
simmee. This yam (or potittoi differs from
the sweet potatoes grown in the United Statew
in that it is made up of about one domen roots
or prongs, resembling a large root of horse-
radish, and its meat is more sticky and ap-
parently full of starch. Mr. Moseley states
that they are used altogether by the natives
on the islands of the South Seas, taking the
place of bread, and that ships sailing those
waters carry them for food instead of the
sweet potatoes grown in this country. The
specimen is attracting a great deal of atten-
tion, as no one yet has been found who ever
saw one before.-Kissimmee Valley-Gaaette.

IRISH POTATO CROP.
The total production of potatoes during the
coming season is estimated at about 126,600,-
000 barrels, and of this Florida will produce
about 325,000 barrels, or one 37th of the the to-
tal. The Hastings section will produce, ac-
cording to figures published in the Advocate
last week, about 245,000 barrels, leaving 80,-
000 to the other sections of the State This
exceeds last season's production by 5,000 bra-
rels, but it is probable that this is slightly
too conservative. But, approximately, the
figures are correct, and at $2.60 a barrel av-
erage, this will bring $812,500 Into the State.
-Orlando Reporter-Star.

WANT FORIDA TOBAOCJO.
According to the United States Tobacco
Journay, representatives of the Manila cigar
factories have arrived in New York and are
seeking for Florida wrapper leaf in order to
augment the native supply. The representa-
tive of a leading firm of cigar manufacturer
in Manila expressly stipulates Florida light
goods in his contracts, notwithstanding Sat-
tering inducements held out by the growers
of Connecticut leaf. These Philippine buy-
ers might be induced to visit Florida tobacco
regions.

HOW TO IMPROVE LAND.
Do you happen to have a run-down old Sild
that grows nothing but weeds, with promise
to stock itself with persimmon and other
shrubs- If so, you will be wise to aratch it
over and sow a handful of chopped Bermuda
grass every few feet. The grass will take root
and grow and make you a good pasture. The









FLORIDA'S FRUJUCIAL AND DUDUWIAL RUCOUD. MY~


stock that you may put on it will deposit
enough fertilizer to restore strength to the
soil-and there you are.-Tampa Times.

RICH SIXTY-DAY CROP.
D. C. Sams is now harvesting the crop from
an acre of cucumbers. He has already shipped
three hundred crates and will get over a hun-
dred more. Although the price has been rath-
er low, netting him ninety cents a crate, it
will be seen that he will make a nice thing
from an acre of land and a crop which only
required sixty days to produce. Mr. Sims
used no irrigation and there has practically
been no rain since the crop Was planted, yet
by scraping off an inch of dust mulch you can
find plenty of moisture any place in the field.
It is such land as this that makes the Wau-
chula section the finest truck section In the
State.-Wauchula Advocate.

CAMPHOR LEAP ANALYSIS.
Pour pounds of camphor leaf were recently
sent from DeFunlak Springs to Washington
by B. F. Noyes and Dr. McKlmmon, and he
has received from Samuel C. Hood, scientific
assistant of the Bureau of Plant Industry, the
results of an analysis, as follows: Weight of
samples, as received, 1,540 grains; per cent
crude camphor in sample 1.86 per cent; pur-
ity of crude sample, 0.51 per cent; per cent
pure camphor in sample, 1.35 per cent.

FORTUNES IN MUCK LANDS.
It has been practically demonstrated that
the beat muck lands around St. Petersburg
will produce celery as prolifically and of as
good quality as is raised at famous Celery
Sanford or any other place. In addition to
celery these lands will produce nearly all the
vegetable crops. Their full possibilities are
not yet known, but it has been shown that
they will produce various crops-such as
peas, lettuce, cucumbers, potatoes, etc.-to
the value of from $200 to $1,000 per acre.
What prices these lands will sell at in the
near future can only be guessed. Up at San-
ford the celery lands are still Jumping in
value.-St. Petersburg Independent.

COTTON IN FLORIDA.
This is a Sea Island belt and our farmers
are only interested in that kind of the fleecy
staple. With the present crop short, it means
that a big crop can be planted next year with
profit, as the stock on hand will be very
small.-Lake City Index.

Messrs. H. R. Green and R. W. Turner sold
to H. F. Dutton & Co., one day this week, a
round lot of 305 bales of Sea Island cotton,
the price of which was 28 cents per pound,
netting in round figures something like $32,-
000, which was the largest cotton sale report-
ed in Columbia county for season.-Lake
City Index.

Cotton is still on the up-grade. Some of the
Wall street gamblers are getting the wadding
knocked out of them this year and we are
glad to see it. It is about time the farmers
and people of the South were getting some-
" thing for their labor and we hope to see cot-
ton go to 20 cents. The government estimates
this year's crop as being the smallest in ten
years.-Marianna Times-Courier.

As another stimulus to cotton growers and
in recognition of the doctrine of the patron-
age of home industries the government has
decided to hereafter ship supplies in cotton
sacks. Now, if the Southern farmers will in-
�'st that cotton bagging be used for baling
n. they too can get in a lick for contin-
. : .::>erit y-Dunnllon Advocate,


CELERY IN NASSAU COUNTY.
As pretty a bunch of celery as was ever
grown was brought to the Record office Wed-
nesday by John Perry, colored. It was grown
by him on his farm near Old Town, within a
stone's throw almost of Fernandina. And
this bunch of celery was not merely one
selected for exhibition, but the grower of it
had a fine lot of the same kind in his wagon
which he brought to market. John has been
raising celery on a small scale for the past
two years but this year he concluded to pro-
duce a much larger crop and there is no doubt
about his success. He put out 10,000 plants
at different times and the bunch he brought
to the Record office was one of a thousand of
his first planting. The rest of his crop, he
says, is only about half grown, but the indi-


cations are that it will be equally as Ae as
the present crop. The bunch we received
measured one yard in length and was as brit-
tle and finely flavored as any we ever tasted.
John is a hustling good farmer and bais
making a small piece of ground pay
handsomely.-Fernandina Record.

ORANGE TREES NOT HURT.
On the night of December 29th-30th Flor-
Ida was visited by the coldest spell of weather
that the state has experienced for several
years, the tduperature falling to 20 degrees
at JacksonAlie and several other places in
the northern tier of counties, and to 28 de-
grees as far south as Tampa. Some sease-
tionalists Immediately rushed stories to a
number of newspapers in various parts of the
country in which they declared that t.e or-
ange trees were all killed and that the entire
state was frozen up.
Now that sufficient time has elapsed to as-
certain the true condition of affairs The Ree-
ord can state most positively anJ emphati-
cally that these stories were without founda-
tia in fact. Reports from all parts of Flor-
ida show that not a single orange tree was
kille*2 sad only in the northern part of the


State were the oranges that remained on the
trees injured by the cold.
Here is the official statement issued on the
night of December 31, by M. E. Gillett, gen-
eral manager of the Florida Citrus Exchange,
and this should set at rest all anxiety regard-
ing the effects of the cold snap that visited
Florida this week:
"Tampa, Fla., Dec. 31.-Reports com-
ing in from various parts of the state in-
dicate that the damage to oranges is very
limited. Where there is any serious
damage it is in very low spots, which are
exposed, not much of the fruit remain-
ing. Firing was resorted to in many lo-
calities, which has saved the fruit from
any damage. It is difficult to arrive at a
definite conclusion at this stage of the
game, but experienced shippers give it as
their opinion that practically the entire
crop now on the trees will be market-
able."
Reports from all sections of Florida show
that what little damage was done to early
vegetables can quickly be recouped, for the
truck growers have already begun replanting
and in from six to eight weeks will be mar-
keting vegetables that cannot be matured
anywhere but in Florida at this time of the
year.
Even in the vicinity of Jacksonville very
little damage was done to vegetables. Ample
warning had been given by the weather bu-
reau and the growers were prepared. Quite
A number of varieties of vegetables were not
at all injured and these will be ready for
market at the usual time. The experienced
vegetable growers are not at all discouraged
and there will be a large increase in acreage
the coming spring.
In several of the colonies in the northern
part of the State the settlers are engaged in
clearing and getting their land ready for cul-
tivation. Few if any of these settlers had
as yet planted any vegetables, so they have
sustained no loss. The cold snap is now over
and another may not come for a number of
years.
The policy of the Record isto to tell the truth
about Florida, a'nd in stating that practically
no damage has been done by the cold weather,

CORRECT INVESTING.
A man who has nothing saved up Is liable
to miss his main chance in life. A man with
even a small savings is poseessed of capital.
Having capital he should make it earn him
money through investment. But It should be
through investment, remember, NOT specu-
lation.
There tois a big difference between Invest-
ment and speculation. The lret Is acting
wisely in placing your surplus in something
that has been tried and found to be mate and
sound; the latter is nothing more nor less
than gambling.
A good investment brings with it a feeling
of financial safety. It excludes worry and re-
Ueves the investor of all anxiety for tomor-
row. Many of the great magnates have ac-
quired their colosal wealth by knowing how
to make good investments.
Investment has breadth. It aists the many
in helping the few. It is broader, more basic
than most men realize. If you associate with
successful people and follow their lead, you
are sure to succeed.
The foundation of the fortunes of the lead-
ing business men of Florida were laid through
investing, not speculating. Investment op-
portunities are just as plentiful today as they
were when these men began investing their
savings.
Real estate, in or around a growing city, is
the safest investment that can possibly be
made. But it must be a growing, progrmaive
city Not a "boom" city, but a city that has
steadily advanced commercially a vIl - I n
population.

FLORMIAS 1UIKANIJAL AND DUUSTRIAL ENOORD.


BOOM FOR TWENTY MILLIONS.

Gseeter Opportultti in florida to Acquire
Wealth ian Anjwhe in This Country.
Every settler in Fl.rida and every person
contemplating the purchime of Florida lands
with a view of locating in the State, should
read and heed the following, which appeared
as the leading editorial in a pacent issue of
9 the Florida Times-Union, the leading state
newspaper: -
On account of her climate Florida offers to
farmers and gardeners better advantages than
any other state. It in a well-authenticated
fact that- as match as three thousand dollars
et value bha been produced in the state on
one acre in aie year. Yields of two thousand
or more per acre have been known in a num-
ber of cases. In spite of this, land in Florida
Is cheaper than in any other state east of the
Mississippi river-probably cheaper than in
any other state of the Union.
We do not say that every man who culti-
vates the soil could make $3,000 or $2,000 or
$1,000 per acre in a year, but we do say that
since such has been accomplished, farmers
should inquire how it was done. They should
be spurred by the maximum of success to ap-
proach as near to it as possible.
Nothing could benefit the state as much as
the adoption by the farmers of the best meth-
ods of cultivation, the use of Judgment in
selecting the crops to plant and in utilizing
the products they now waste. The farmers of
Florida, by using their minds as well as their
muscles, could become the richest on earth.
STheir success would also do much to at-
tract Immigration. Lands would soon sell for
as many dollars as they now bring dimes. We
are not sure that the present low price of
land is not a hindrance rather than an in-
ducement to immigration. Men who are
looking around for new homes often decide
against a locality that offers lands at a figure
far lower than they are accustomed to con-
sidering. They think that what the owner
holds so cheaply is worth even less than is
asked.
If the best methods should become the rule
in Florida instead of the exception, this pen-
insula would soon become the richest spot on
earth. There might be more multi-million-
aires in centers that attract fortunes after
they are made, but wealth would be the rule
here, and poverty would be almost unknown.
We say all this, not because we are not do-
ing well already, but because we could do
better, and because we should be contented
with nothing but the best. As conditions ex-
ist today we doubt if there is less poverty in
any other state than in Florida. This is true
In spite of the fact that there are few states
to which as many moneyless men come. Mil-
lionaires come, but they go away. Thousands
come her every year with practically nothing.
They come to better their conditions, and
with very few exceptions they succeed. There
is room for twenty million people in Florida,
and no other state offers such opportunities
to change a small capital into affluence.

THE BEST ROAD TO SUCCESS.
Under the above caption the Florida Times-
E Union publishes the following, which should
be read by every person looking for a location
for a home in Florida or for an investment in
Florida lands:
"It is difficult to conceive of a better invest-
ment than is offered by Duval county farming
lands. During the next ten years farming
lands will increase in value all over the South,
will increase in value more rapidly in Florida
than anywhere else in the South and will
-anbably increase in value more rapidly in
S-- 1 county than anywhere else in Florida.
"'Te movemest to the cities whbch has


been in progress for decades has reduced the
supply and increased the demand for farm
products until now the farmers get the best
prices for what they grow. What would have
been thought fifteen years ago of the man
predicting the present level of prices of farm
products? He would have been considered a
foolish dreamer if not even insane.
"Florida products reach the market ahead
of those of other states when the inexorable
law of supply and demand places their value
at the very top notch. As a result Florida
farmers have made as much as $3,000 from
one acre in one year. Quite a number have
made as much as $2,000; a very large num-
ber have made as much as $1,000, and in
some localities $500 to the acre is not consid-
ered an unusual crop.
"Taking the United States as a whole $50
worth of products to the acre is considered
doing extremely well. In Northern States
land that can produce so much sells for $50
or more per acre. Now, if land that is cap-
able of producing $50 per acre is worth $50
per acre what would land capable of produc-
ing $500 per acre be worth?
"A Northern farmer can sell land capable
of producing $500 worth of products and with
the money he gets can buy in Florida land
capable of producing $10,000 worth; for land
is cheap in Florida. This statement is true of
well selected land anywhere in the state.
"But, in addition to this, well selected land
near Jacksonville would rise rapidly in value
even if left entirely idle. Farming land would
soon become suburban property. Suburban
property would soon become city real estate.
There is land within three miles of the gov-
ernment building in Jacksonville that could
have been bought for $20 per acre sixteen
years ago. Now it sells for about $1,000 for
a quarter of an acre lot.
"During the next ten years Jacksonville
will extend over ten square miles of land at
present occupied only by scattering houses.
The man who buyes well selected Duval coun-
ty lands can change an investment of $1,000
for a fortune in twenty years."

OPPORTUNITIES FOR SETTLERS.

Free Courses in Agriculture at the University
of Florida Can Be Secured.
A large number of the new settlers in
Florida have decided to engage extensively
in the cultivation of vegetables for the north-
ern markets. They have read of the great
profits to be made in this industry and they
are anxious to secure some of these profits.
That is a laudable ambition on the part of
the new settler and there is no doubt that
several thousand acres will be added to the
truck-farming area of the State during the
coming year. That will mean a material de-
velopment of many localities of the State and
it will mean a greatly increased business for
the railroads operating in Florida, as well
as those reaching the great markets of the
country where the Florida produce will be
handled.
It will be well, however, for every person
contemplating engaging in the cultivation of
vegetables in Florida to become thoroughly
informed in regard to the best manner and
method of cultivating each particular crop.
They will find that they cannot treat the Flor-
ida soil the same as the soil In many other
parts of the country. They should ascertain
from reliable sources just what crops'their
soil is beat adapted to and the best method
of cultivating certain crops in certain locali-
ties.
. Thq Tampa Bay Land Company has shown


its progressiveness by arranging to give a
free course in agriculture at the University
of Florida to its customers who buy and
take deed to twenty or more acres of lIad
nla the new colony of South Tampa. Th
scholarship Includes free board, tuition ons
incidentals for a three months' course. TB
course' will begin February 10. and there is
no doubt that quite a number of those who
will purchase land in the South Tampa eol-
ony will avail themselves of this opportunity
to thoroughly equip themselves for the Intel-
ligent cultivation of various crops.
There are already several large truck far-m
on the South' Tampa tract and close to the
edge of the colony. Big profits are made from
the cultivation of celery, lettuce, Irish peta-
toes and other vegetables on these farms, and
there is not a particle of doubt that the new
settlers who take advantage of this oppor-
tunity to acquire a thorough practical edu-
cation in agriculture and horticulture at the
University of Florida will also make a idg
success in operating truck farms in the South
Tampa colony.
For the benefit of the people of the State as
a whole the Department of Agriculture of
the University of Florida announces that It is
carrying on a correspondence course ta Agri-
culture. This course is in charge of Prot.
J. J. Vernon, of the Agricultural Depart-
ment of the University, and is eeadnetad eo
the same general plan as the correy
schools throughout the country. .N chage
is made for this course, this only expense
being for the textbooks, and these do not
cost more than $3 or'$4 at the outside, for
the complete course. Any person interested
In this free course should address Pre. Ver-
non, care of the Unti' rrity at jGalsilv.le

OPPORTUNITY FOR HOMESBErED.
Go into any restaurant or hotel In Jack-
sonville and quietly investigate from- what
source they obtain their eggs and you will
find that nine-tenths of the eggs consumed
are from other States than Florida.
With eggs selling at thirty-five "and eveP
forty cents a dozen at this time of year does
it not prove that there is a splendid oppor-
tunity for a large number of persons to en-
gage in poultry raising close to the city of
Jacksonville?
The demand for chickens and eggs in
Jacksonville is a never ceasing one. Hun-
dreds of chicken farmers in other states
make handsome incomes out of shipping eggs
to Jacksonville and other Florida eitles. *
One half-acre or an acre, on the edge 'of
Jacksonville, used exclusively as a chicken
ranch would be the biggest kind of a paying
investment to those who would engage in it.
Here is an opening for the homeseeleos
of small means who wish to settle in Floridh.
At the present time land is cheap in the sub-
urbs of Jacksonville. A full acre, desirably
located, can be bought for as little as two
hundred dollars, and the payments can be
arranged so that it will not take more than
$5 or $10 a month to pay for the land. An
acre is ample for the erection of a house,
with flowers and fruit trees and also for a
nice sized chicken ranch.
If a man has enough capital to support
him for a short time he will soon have an in-
come from a place of this kind that will be
far above the income of the average elerk,
bookeeper or small merchant. He will be
leading a life that will insure health and hap-
piness and will attain an ladepeadeae thnt
will be the envy of all his friends an -2l0-

XUYSTOIIE PARK COLONY.


Cold Did No Damage.-ettlers Busy Plant-
tag Orange Groves and Cultivattg
Crops.
Colony House, Keystone Park, Hillsborough
County, Jan. 1.-While the old year wound
up business in this colony-with cool and brac-
ing weather, and investigation shows that the
cold did little or no damage to the orange
trees in the twenty-odd bearing groves lo-
cated within a radius of four miles of the Col-
ony House. Nearly all the fruit had been
picked and shipped before the advent of the
cold wave, therefore there was little fruit
exposed. The trees were not injured and the
only damage reported was to some of the ten-
derest vegetation.
Keystone Park Colony enters upon the
New Year with bright prospects. New set-
tlers are constantly arriving and beginning
Improvements and those who have been here
for some time are now all settled down to
work on their places. Busy scenes are pre-
sented in all sections of the colony, and at
the present time the Colony House and cot-
tages are filled to their capacity. Superin-
tendent Webber is kept busy all the time as-
sisting the Colonists with his advice and help
in getting them started. He is making good
headway with the demonstration farm and
expects to make a great success out of the
vegetables he now has growing on the farm.
Plating Orange Groves.
John Kllng, of Wellesley, Mass., owner of
twenty acres in section 1, has awarded a con-
tract for clearing, fencing and planting ten
acres in orange trees. Mr. Kling expects to
come to Keystone Park in the Spring.
C. P. Geddes, of the Panama Canal Zone,
was here this week and has let a contract for
the cultivation of twenty acres of his forty
acre tract. He will plant five acres in vege-
tables and five acres in orange trees and will
also build a house. He has arranged for his
parents to come here to live and they will be
here very shortly and occupy Mr. Geddes'
house.
Elmo Marshall, of Walsh, Alberta, Canada,
reached here this week and is clearing his
ten acre tract. He will put in an irrigating
system and will plant six acres in cucumbers
at once. He has bought ten acres in addition
to his first purchase and will at once build a
neat and attractive house.
E. C. Olsen has been here sixty days and
within that time has completed his house and
is now clearing and fencing his tract. He
will begin planting at once.
J. H. Watson has built a comfortable home
in Section 7, and is now busily engaged in
cultivating his land. Mr. Watson takes con-
tracts for clearing and fencing and cultivat-


every Colony in Florida every week. News
letters must reach the Record oice not later

is a hustler.
This Colony the Best
E. C. Mcgehee ,of Alabama for the past two
years, but for twenty years previous a resi-
dent of Florida, has returned to this state
and has decided to make his home in Key-
stone Park Colony. He is greatly pleased
with the Colony and the general conditions
pervailing in this section.
L. W. Smith, who has lived at Plant City,
Fla., for some time, will move to Keystone
Park shortly and will put out an orange grove
on the tract of land he purchased last fall.
Mr. Smith visited the Colony before the Col-
ony house was erected and before a single
new settler had arrived. He is thoroughly
familiar with lands in all parts of Florida and
is most favorably impressed with Keystone
Park and the quality of the soil.
Capt. R. E. Mansfield, one of the valued at-
taches of the Postoffice department, has paid
in full for his thirty acre tract and has also
secured a deed to a valuable building lot in
the townsite surrounding the Colony House.
Capt. Mansfield will return to Keystone Park
this month and will begin extensive improve-
ments on both his farm property and his lot
in the town.
R. H. Seymour, of Bristol, Tenn., arrived
here this week. He has purchased a well
located building lot in the townsite and will
begin improvements immediately.
Store Doing Big Business.
The general store of the Keystone Park
Commercial Company, located in the town-
site close to the Colony House, has opened
up with a full supply of all lines of mer-
chandise. The store is doing a large busi-
ness supplying the settlers with fencing,
building material, furniture, groceries and
feed and also trees and seed for planting.
C. F. Schumacher, of Indiana, who moved
here about sixty days ago and built a house,
has brought his mother and father from Ger-
many to his new home in Keystone Park Col-
ony. Mr. Schumacher has been in America
about six years and has lived in several dif-
ferent places, but says that never until reach-
ing Keystone Park Colony had he found a
place where he was satisfied to locate perma-
nently and bring the "old folks from home."
He and his family are now settled down on
their tract east of Keystone Lake and all are
busy clearing and cultivating their land.
We are reallably informed that a capable
physician of high standing in his present
home will arrive shortly to make this colony
his home and will offer his services whenever
needed, but the noted healthfulness of this
community does not offer very bright pros-
pects for a medical practitioner. However,
the doctor will no doubt find his time fully
occupied in looking after a farm and grove


Jacksonville Parms.
This colony sustained no damage by the
cold weather that visited the State this we@k
Quite a number of new settlers ate prepr-
ing to engage extensively in track tfating,
but their field amd garden crop wee not (ar
enough advanced to sustain any injury. The
cold weather has helped materially in freatag
the entire state of any insect pests that might
attack vegetation, and it is believed that the
result will be that a much larger are than
ever will be planted in vegetables this sesom
The promoters of this colony have always
been careful to advise settlers that it would
not be a wise move to try orange culture in
this section of the State, therefore no one has
planted any orange trees, and there was no
fruit to be hurt by the cold.
This is essentially a colony of farmers and
truck growers, with some making a specialty
of chicken raising, therefore a little cold
weather coming in December has not discour-
aged anyone. Vegetables planted early in
January will mature and be ready for the
market before the middle of March, and there
is no danger of competition from any other
part of the United States for weeks after that
time.
Jacksonville Farms Colony is rapidly set-
tling up with a good progressive class of col-
onists. They are engaged in building homes
and clearing and fencing land and getting
everything ready for cultivating crops. The
soil is well adapted to the raising of various
kinds of vegetables that bring big prices early
in the season, and the colony is supplied with
most excellent transportation facilities.
All of our settlers are happy and contented
and all are anticipating a prosperous year.

PROGRESS AT LARGO.
Largo, Dec. 30.-The man who selected
this site for Iargo must certainly have been
a far-sighted man, and should he be living
at this day he would be convinced of the
fact by the progress and growth of the little
city. Its three packing houses are busy dur-
ing the greater part of the winter season, and
though the price of fruit has been very low
during the earlier part of this season many
cars have been sent out to the markets, some-
of which brought very good prices.
The sidewalks are paved with rock similar
to phosphate rock, which makes a very
smooth surface and hardens with age. Many
of the streets are paved and work is now
being rapidly pushed forward in paving the
street reaching from the railroad to the Bank
of Largo, which will be a very great improve-
ment in this thoroughfare. Messrs. J. B. Lov-
ering and M. A. McMullen are having side-
walks built on their property.

MANY NEW COLONIeB.
Transfers of real estate in great bodies
have been common in Florida this year. but
the recent sale of 300,000 acres lying on
both sides of the Kissimmee river tops the
record. Of this great body-of land 212,000
acres lie in Osceola county, on the east side
of the river. This was the property of the
Consolidated Land Company of Jacksonville.
The remaining 88,000 acres lie in Desoto
county, and were owned by Walter Graham,
formerly a well-known Florida newspaper
man, and F. R. McConnell. This great tract
of land was purchased by F. R. Lynch, who
was the campaign manager d tha late ov,









FLORIDA'8 FINANCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL RECORD SUPPLEMENT.

In the Suburbs of


JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA

THE FASTEST GROWING CITY IN THE WORLD


The Jacksonville Development Company, a half-million dollar home
corporation, of which Judge W. B. Owen, Vice-President of the Com-

mercial Bank, is the-active president, owns some of the very best

farming lands in the suburbs of Jacksonville. These lands are

sub-divided into five-acre farms and garden tracts and are
known as "Jacksonville Farms."


The land ts high, underlaid by a sub-
stratum of clay, on and between two of the big
trunk systems of railways entering Jackson-
ville and within ten to fourteen miles at the
outside of the very heart of the city, the
smblrbs extending far out towards the prop-
ety.
The titles to the land are good, the ap-
proaches and surroundings good, the neigh-
borhood excellent. Good schools, churches,
etc., are near and the community is rapidly
building up with a most excellent, industrious
and contented citizenship.
The Jacksonville Development Co. is a con-
servative, strictly reliable corporation, with
thousands of satisfied customers on its books.
It does not believe in exciting prospective pur-
chasers by intense, overdrawn advertising,
preferring on the contrary to place its ofer-
Iags before the public in a plan, matter-of-
$act, business-like way. As a result it is
sever embarrassed by dissatisfied and com-
plalig clients. It pleases; and it pleases its
customers because it regards their confidence
inKed and it looks after their interests as
qelnfi as it does its own.
The county of Dural-of which Jackson-
ville is the capital-has just passed, almost
unaaioualy, a million dollar bond issue
for good roads throughout the county, and
ene @ the rst roads to be built after the
holidays is the county road that goes directly
thwe these "Jacksopvlls Peris," the five-
garden tracts to which we now refer.
-athis road is completed we believe every
acre of ground we are selling today will


jump in value from 50 to 100% an acre.
That is a conservative estimate
The purchase of one or more of these five-
acre Jacksonville suburban farms now, there-
fore, should appeal not only to the home-
seeker, who wants to free himself from wages
and slavery, and live in happiness and con-
tentment but also to the man or woman who
wants to place surplus earnings each month
where they are as safe as if invested in a gov-
ernment bond, and where the returns will be
infinitely greater.
Buy land in the suburbs of Jacksonville!
We cannot emphasize that injunction too
strongly. Jacksonville is a city of 75,000
people today and it is growing as if by magic
-growing faster than any other city on the
map of the American continent. Can you not
see and appreciate-actually feel-your duty?
We have only one hundred of these choice
five-acre suburban home and garden tracts
left, and until further notice, we shall sell
them at $150 each-just $30 an acre-on
the easy terms of $5 cash and $5 a month un-
til paid for. There is no interest on the de-
ferred payments and no taxes on the acres
until paid for.
The Jacksonville Development Company
will issue a contract for deed upon the re-
ceipt of order and the first or initial payment,
and when the payments have been completed,
as stated, a full warranty deed will be issued.
It is well known wherever the Jacksonville
Development Co. is known that small inves-
tors can make no mistake to follow its lead.
The Florida Daily Times-Union recently said
editorially of its manager, "He has made his
own fortune, not at the expense of others, but


by making thousands of others richer." A
greater compliment was never paid to a man
by the press of this nation.
If you are a resident of some distant
state, and you ever hope to move to Florida
to reside, we say to you frankly and with
every sincerity, we qo not believe you could
invest $5 a month more wisely than to buy
now, while the prices are low, one of them
five-acre suburban tracts on the fringe of
this great and growing city of Jacksonville.
Many who have bought in the suburbs of
Jacksonville in the past have made fortunes
-even greater fortunes are to be made in
the future.
Five acres in the suburbs of Jacksonvllo,
as a market garden, as a poultry farm, can
be made to pay for itself many, many thies
oter in a single year. and build up the
nucleus of a rich Inheritance. We are talk-
ing in all earnestness-we want you to listen
and to believe and have faith in what we say.
If we are worthy of your faith, then do not
neglect your duty! Act today! Send your
order for at least five acres with the initial
remittance of $5 and before you will have
finished paying for this tract it will be worth
nearer $100 an acre than $30, the purchase
price, in our judgment. It can never be worth
less, therefore there is not an iota of risk.
Ask the Commercial Bank, the Florida Na-
tional Bank, in fact any individual or say
bank who we are and whether or not you eMR
rely upon our statements. If you find tha
you can, send in your order this very hour. It
will have the very closest attention, and our
selection for you will be with a keen personal
interest.

One Settler's Home


Capt. C. A. Stadil, who has followed the
sea for a number of years and visited every
quarter of the Globe, is one of the settlers
Jacksonville Farms. Capt. Stadil owns
island-Stadil Island-on the lower coast of
Florida. He has tried cultivating the soil in
numerous places, but says that Jacksonville
Farms beats them all. He has cleared five
acres of land and has planted peas, Irish po-
tatoes, etc., and also has a nice poultry yard
with about fifty or more head of fine chickens.
He is one of the most enthusiastic "boosters"
of Duval county lands and especially of Jack-
sonville Farms.


The main county road, leading from Jack-
sonville to Lake City, Tallahassee and Pen-
sacola, passes directly through Jacksonville
Farms. This road has been graded recently
and is now ready for paving. The county
commissioners have announced that this is
one of the roads that is to be paved with vit-
rifled brick and it is expected that the work
of extending the pavement will soon begin.
At the present time the farms are easily ap-
proached, the run being frequently made fI
an automobile in less than an hour from the
center of the city of Jacksonville.

FLORIDA'S FINANCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL RECORD SUPPLEMENT.


The Great Florida Opportunity of the Hour


T) its thousands of friends throughout the length and breadth of this country, the Jacksonville
1| Development Company desires to announce that of its large farm land holdings adjacent to
Jacksonville it has only one hundred of the five-acre Jacksonville Farms tracts left, hut they
are among the choicest of the choice.
Large numbers of homeseekei s are now in Florida and the demand for these Jacksonville
Farms tracts will without doubt greatly exceed the supply. We shall not advance the price, how-
ever and the first come first served at the rate of $30 an acre; and the old terms of $5 cash on 5
acres and $5 a month without interest, will prevail.



Now---This Very Day...is the Time to Act!


There is an opportune moment for
everything.
There is a tide ii the affairs of every
man that must be taken at its flood to
*wfi.
Our word for it-
This to the opportune moment to
buy farm lands in Florida as an in-
vestment! And it is the investment
feature alone we shall discuss in this
particular article.
Just to analyze the situation.
First, the panic conditions of 1907-
08 and the consequent disutr: ance in
industrial lines in the Nor ,i .ad West
have suggested to and con, nced thou-
sands of wage-earners ii the larger
cities, many of them he-tds of families
with their children growing up in
crowded, congested streets, that It is
to their interest to seek the country,
where conditions are more stable, com-


forts and luxuries more certain, the
pleasure of living more pronoun-ed.
And Florida, the home of sunshine
and pelce and prosperity, is reaping
the result.
Second, the climate of Florida is
the greatest asset any State cr Terri-
tor, has even possessed, and the thou-
sands of people who are tired and dis-
gusted with the long, icy winters of
the North and West, winters of sleet
and snow and discomforts and denres-
sions, are turning their eyes toward
a land where the fuel problem is less
serious-where the outdoor life is a
recreation-
And again Florida is reaping the
reward.
Third, Florida lands, the most pro-
ductive the year round, are cheaper
than in other states of less advantages,
so much so, indeed, that the earnings


-the yielding power-of the invest-
ment is greater, thus the profits are
larger on less capital used-a finan-
cial advantage potent enough, but pe-
culiar to Florida, and thus again-
Florida reaps the reward.
Fourth, the great Panama Canal
will make Florida the great gateway to
the two continents and will make her
one of the wealthiest and most pros-
perous States in the Union.
And the people are looking ahead.
Fifth, Florida is being advertised
more than ever before, her advan-
tages are being made known to the
thinking people of the civilized world,
and thousands, tens of thousands,
eyes are this very day turned toward
the Peninsular State-thousands, tens
of thousands, new homes will, as a
consequence, be established in this
State In the next few months.


Know With Whom You Are Dealing.

CoL John M. Stevens, President of the Union Savings Bank, writes:
"Permit me to congratulate you upon the great work that the Jackson-
ville Development Company ia doing in this city and community, in providing
homes for our people in such a way that they could not have them if it were
not for your company and its liberal plans."

Dr. H. Robinson, President Commercial Bank, writes:
"Officered as the Jacksonville Development Company is, by some of our
leading citizens, it must be gratifying to its customers to know that they
are dealing with a strictly reliable corporation."




Don't Forget Three Important Matters:

FIRST-Quality: Only One-hundred five-acre tracts in Jacksonville Farms in the suburbs of Jackson-
ville, left.
SECOND-Price: Just $30 an acre ($150 per five acres) and the same lands will be selling in our
judgment at double and treble that figure in the future.
THIRD-Terms: Just five dollars cash for five acres and $5 a month, without interest or taxes.

Now Will You, or Will You Not?

MPLORIDAW FIANCIAL AND IfDUSRIAL RBOORD.


Johanon, of Minnesota, and Mr. Lnch's amo-
dates. When this great tract of land is sold
to colonists on the small farm plan it will
mean a great concession to the population
and the wealth of that part of Florida. Oa-
eeola county is growing by leaps and bounds.
DeBoto county is as large as a small state and
has lots of good land awaiting the settler,
but it will not have to wait long, now that its
* merits are becoming known. Another deal is
aid to be pending and a railroad is spoken
of as a probability.-Times-Union.

PBOGRBE AT ICGE BAT.
Tiger Bay, Florida.- he Palmetto Phos-
phate Company has recently put id operation
its new producer-gas electrical generating
plant. The first of the three units was started
November 23rd, the second November s2th
and the third December 2nd. Briefly, the
equipment consists of one 1100 H. P. gas pro-
ducer plant in three units, three 18x24-inch
single tandem gas engines direct connected
to 200 K. W., 2300 volt, generators together
with the necessary exciters, transformers,
switchboards, etc. A large number of motors
have also been installed, so that, the entire
plant is now electrically operated. Allis-
Chalmers Company are the builders of the
apparatus.

EAST COAST COLONIBS.
St. Augustine.-There has been exceptional
activity is large real estate deals in St. Johns
county this season. Fully a dosen large tracts
of land have changed hands, and are now
the property of influetial anmciers, who will
improve and cultivate the lands through set-
ilers nl the immediate future.
In addition to those previously mentioned
in these columns, there have been a number
of deals consummated through the land and
industrial department of the Florida East
Coast Railway Company both in St. Johns
county, and also in the other counties fur-
ther down the coast. Many very desirable
tracts have been bought, and and negotiations
are now pending for many others.
Mr. H. L.-Simpson, of Oil City, Pa., and
Mr. S. E. Beegley of Dayton, Ohio, prominent
financiers have just closed a deal with Mrs.
B. A. Carter of Hurds through which they
become possessors of a large tract of valuable
land at Racy Point. These parties have also
bought and are clearing a tract of several
thousand acres near Hastings, which will
soon be brought under cultivation. They
are also negotiating for another large tract
of land located a few miles north of St. Aug-
ustine, through C. F. Hopkins & Son, real
estate agents.
In all these transactions many thousands
of acres are involved. The new purchasers
are. all men of means, Who will either im-
prove and cultivate the lands themselves or
sell it off into small farms and colonize
the localities in which they are located.
These numerous deals in farm lands, most
of which are unimproved, demonstrated most
clearly the fact that St. Johns and the other
counties along the East Coast of Florida are
rapidly growing in favor among the agricul-
turists of the country. The farmers already
located in these sections have demonstrated
the numerous advantages of farming in Flor-
ida, and the enormous profits to be derived
from the crops raised. These are encouraging
others from the North and West to invest
and locate in Florida, and the indications
point to a larger number of new settlers this
season than ever before since Florida has
beem recognized as an attractive agricultural
state.


OP(IIONM OP THE STATE PRESB.
"Why is Florida land so cheap?" asked a
gentleMian yesterday. Because so few people
have come to realize its real value.-St.
Petersburg Independent.

Real estate in Florida will never again be
as cheap as at the present time. The wonder-
ful productiveness of the soil and the great
variety of crops which it will produce gives
a value that can never be destroyed.-Bra-
dentown Journal.

Sanford and Fernandina editors are fuss-
ing over their lands. Each is claiming his as
the best. But if they would only come and
take a look at the soil that took the prise
at the Tampa Fair last spring, they would
both look longingly toward this good old
tonh.-Lake City Index.

There are thousands of acres of fertile
lands in Walton county waiting for the man
who shall tickle them with the hoe, using
not muscle alone, but brain as well in his
agriculture, and which shall smile with a
gladsome profitable harvest. There are thou-
sands of farmers in the North and West who
are being forced by high-priced lands to
seek new locations. To them our acres ex-
tend an invitation. Come and see them.-
DeFunlak Breese.

"We know we're not great in industrial
development," says the Blountstown Record,
"but the man that does the work finds old
West Florida as the home for the laboring
man.' Right you are brother, but under
present conditions the laboring man does not
get an adequate reward for his labor in tilling
the soil. Recent experiments abundantly
show that the soil of good old West Florida
will produce the "stuff" it it is treated only
half right. Our enterprising citizens of Santa
Rosa are now busy among themselves getting
up a scheme to obviate this trouble of poor
crops The "how to do it?" is the only ques-
tion, and that we are going to find out by the
establishment of an agricultural school and
demonstration farm. If you crackers over
there in Calhoun want to wear diamonds Just
keep your eyes on Santa Rosa.-Santa Ross
Star.

This is rather a crucial time for Florida.
The many colonization enterprises now in full
swing are bringing so many people into the
State from so many quarters of the country
that their impressions will go over the whole
of the United States. It may not be denied
that there is a risk run by this pellmell in-
troduction of so many people who have had
very little preliminary preparation in either
knowledge or practice to qualify them to
make the best of their new homes. It may
be taken for granted that some of them will
meet disappointment, and a noise that sounds
like grief has a far greater penetrating power
than laughter and song and content. It there-
fore would be a good idea for us all to en-
deavor to make it pleasant for these new-
comers, to assist them by advice and neigh-
brollness and in those many ways which are
to be appreciated by strangers in a strange
land.-Tampa Times.

Over at Milton, located in Santa Rosa coun-
ty, we think, there is a man who wants to
do something which will be of untold benefit
to the entire county: He has offered, rent
free, twenty acres of good land, cleared and
fenced, for agricultural demonstration work.
Why can't some one of our large land owners
be as generous? An agricultural demonstra-
tion farm in Madison county would be one of


the longest and most progressive steps which
we as a county could possibly make. We have
the lands in abundance, as fine and produc-
tive as any in Florida, but we do need ad-
vanced methods of planting and cultivating.
-Madison Enterprise-Recorder.

ALL FLORIDA LAND WORTH ITB PRIC.
A good deal of talk is going the rounds of
the press in these days about "misrepresent-
ing things," that a great deal of the land
placed on the market will not produce what
is claimed it will and and is not worth the
money asked for it, etc.
Now let us take a look into this land mta-
ter a little, and se if we do not ind things
some different than have these pessimsts.
As a general rule land on which colonists are
being located in this State, is being sold at
from $20 to $30 an acre, with a lot in the
colony town thrown in. Any man can make
a living for his family on five acres here, and
have at least $50 an acre left each year, or
$250 from a five-acre tract, which is an aver-
age of about 100 per cent on his original in-
vestment. Of course, this statement carries
with it the proviso that the man works, in-
stead of putting in his time standing around
enjoying the pleasant weather and telling ct
the big fish he caught.
Remember that this man is out only a
hundred or two dollars for land, and not more
than a thousand dollars for having It put in
shape for cultivation and building him a irst-
class house-and it pays him 25 per cent as
his interest the first year.
Land in the North and West that will yield
$50 worth of anything net a year is held at
from $200 to $300 an acre and usually land
that yields as much as $50 gross a year brings
$50 an acre there. It requires a great deal
more costly house to live in, stock must be
fed in the stall six months at least out of
every twelve, and the fuel bill is about twenty
times as great as it is here.
Life in the extreme North or Northwest is
little else than a mere existence, for the in-
tense cold in the winter and the extreme heat
in the summer robs one of half the pleasure
of living, and a failure of a crop means in
many cases a mortgage on the farm to pro-
vide a living until next planting season, for
its one, and only one crop a year there.
Land in this State that is selling for $100
and $200 an acre, if properly cultivated, will
yield a thousand dollars worth of vegetables
a year, or 500 per cent., at least, on the pur-
chase price, and there is no snow to shovel,
ice to break, or heat prostrations to contend
with. Here you live all day every day in the
year and enjoy health and happiness, on an
interest of one-tenth of what would be neces-
sary in the North to make the same amount of
money.
That being the case, we cannot see how a
man is buncoed out of his money who buys
land at the priced now being asked in Florida.

Jacksonville Heights, Dec. T.--Wlliam
Preese, whose wife was the second settler
(among the newcomers) to build and live
here, has reached here from his former home
in Philadelphia. Mr. Preese was in the in-
surance business in his old location and will
engage in the same line here. He is a very
able musician, as well, and held responsible
and lucrative positions. Upon the eve of his
departure from his old associates he was pre-
sented with many gifts, among which were
an oil painting of himself and a fine gold
watch. Mr. Preese is much pleased with this
locality and climate.

came from Oklahoma; consideration $760, or
$15 per acr. This-price indicates how land
values are appreciating in certain localities,
as this tea-acre tract was put on sale when
the heights company opened the sale at $300.
Mr. Erhardt is pleased with his purchase and
is already on the premises ready to build a
residence and improve the property.
Christmas services at the Union church
Friday evening were a pronounced success
sad the house was literally crowded to the
doors. An excellent program was rendered
and many gifts distributed.
Jacksonville Heights Improvement Com-
pany is now about to build a good sized, school
house at Lynn park. Contract for same will
be awarded within a few days.
SAugust Moquist and J. J. Smith, both from
Nevada, have secured twenty acres on the
county road in this community and already
have a well built little house erected. When
asked their opinion of the heights company,
as well as of the country and the climate, they
said: "We are highly pleased with this local-
ity and expect to soon have our families here.
There is no better climate anywhere, so far
as we can find, and we shall do our best to
make our places productive."
Mrs. W. L. Thoradyke entertained a small
party Christmas eve and on Friday gave a
dinner to several guests.
C. W. Toplif of Illinois, and R. M. Mills
of Minnesota, have secured a ten-acre tract
just east of the county road and are now
hard at work putting up their residence.
They seem to be hustlers, are pleased with
their property and propose to Improve their
premises at once.

IAOCAL MARKET ESSENTIAL TO 8UC-
C08 FOR SETTLERS.
In Florida vegetables mature in the win-
ter season when there is no competition from
any other part of the country. That is why
the Florida truck farmer makes such big
profits off a small tract of land.
One man finds that five or ten acres is all
that he wants here in Florida. He does not
have to cultivate one hundred or one hundred
and sixty acres to get enough to support him-
self and family. His returns off of ten acres,
when the land is intelligently cultivated and
well fertilized, will bring him a net profit far
larger than he could possibly make off of
fifty acres in many portions of the country.
During one winter season in Florida-say,
from November to April, he can raise three
and sometimes four different crops, and each
one of these crops will bring him larger net
returns than any of his single crops on a
much larger area will at his old home in the
North.
Then, is it any wonder that so many peo-
ple ire engaging in truck farming in Flor-
ida?
But the man wh8 wishes to succeed and
make the biggest profits must be careful in
selecting a location for his truck farm. He
should not get very far away from a large city
where he will fnd a good local market for the
produce that he does not raise in sufficient
quantity to ship in carload lots. He must also
have good transportation facilities for ship-
ping his produce, and where it is possible he
should locate near two different railroads, so
as to secure the advantage of rates from a
competitive point.
A truck farmer located near Jacksonville
or Tampa has the advantage of freight rates
and also a great advantage in time that it
takes his products to reach the great con-
sumntg mathat of the country.


PROGRESSIVE FLORIDA CITIES.
KISSIMMEE-Members of the board of
trade are working to secure the erection of
another modern hotel in that city, which is
needed to accommodate the increasing num-
ber of strangers who are going that way.

SANFORD-Citisens will spend $77,000 on
a big plan for the drainage of the celery
delta.

MILTON-Santa Rosa is in a fair way to
get that agricultural school and demonstra-
tion farm its most progressive desire. The
last issue of the Milton Star published three
more letters from citizens subscribing $100
each to a fund for such a purpose.

PENSACOLA-Eight hundred men are em-
ployed on Pensacola's docks.

TARPON SPRINGS-Sponge sales amount-
ed to $40,000 last week.

SANFORD-Three thousand sacks of seed
potatoes have been ordered by the truckers.
Potato growing in that section is taking on
proportions. Next to Hastings, Sanford will
probably be the largest producer in the world.

OCALA--Ocala is soon to have a large can-
ning factory. The building is now in course
of erection. The capacity of the plant will
be 50,000 cans per day.

WEST PALM BEACH-The high school is
now fitted with fine biological, physical and
chemical laboratories.

ST. AUGUSTINE-At a recent meeting of
the Business Men's League it was unani-
mously decided that the city needed better
protection from dangers from storms, which
can be secured only by the erection of a more
adequate sea wall. A committee of thirty-
eight was appointed to boost the movement.

TALLAHASSEE-Within the next month
Florida, through the board of trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund, will let a con-
tract that will probably be the largest award-
ed in many years by any Southern State and
one that will result in the completion of the
great Everglades drainage project within a
comparatively short time.

-AT. AUGUSTINE.-C. E. Chambers has
named his rich truck patch northeast of that
city the "Blue Ribbon Farm." He was the
first in that vicinity to plant celery, and
reaped a good money reward from it, and
he has now planted a lot of rhubarb.

PALM BEACH-The Okeechobee road sec-
tion is a busy place and farm work is in prog-
ress all over the territory. The water is sub-
siding rapidly and the lands are In excellent
condition. It is estimated that some 200
acres will be planted this season, a large
part of this being.in Irish potatoes.

TAMPA-Samuel J. Davis & Co. have let
the contract to John Drew of West Tampa
for the erection of their commodious new
cigar factory at the corner of Howard and
Cypress avenues and ground will be broken
January 1, 1910, for the foundations for the
new structure. The building will be 50 by
200 feet, and will cost $75,000. It will be
after the style and arrangement of the Pendas
& Alvarez factory, located near the site for
the new factory. All of its appointments will
be up-to-date and it will be provided with
every convenience for the accommodation of
a large force of cigarmakers. The building
will be one of the largest in West Thmpa and


will add another substantial cigar manfae-
turing establishment to West Tampa.

ORLANDO:- Orlando has a Lake bola
right in the exact center of the city" and now
proposes to make a city park around it. The
late Jacob Summerlin deeded to the city a
tract of land sixty feet in width all aund
the lake for park purposes. Mr. Muselwhite
recently deeded a large plat of land lyng
east of this sheet of water and negotiations
are now in progress to secure several acres
lying just east of it. If this is done Orlando
will have a park four city blocks long by
three wide with a natural lake in the center.
Such a pleasure ground will add to the value
of every foot of ground in the city and to the
desirableness of life therein.

SOME OF FLORIDA'B ADVANTAGL
Besides the advantages to be obtained
from owning a home in Florida there are
numerous- advantages to be secured from in-
vesting in Florida lands. Here are some of
them:
Thousands of wage-earners in the large
cities, many of them heads of families, with
their children growing up in crowded, con-
gested streets, have been convinced by rea-
son of the panic conditions of two years ago
and the consequent disturbance in Industrial
lines that followed in the North and Wet,
that It is to their interest to seek the country,
where the conditions are more stable, com-
forts and luxuries more certain and the ples-
ure of living more pronounced.
The result is that Florida, the State of
sunshine, health, wealth and happiness, as
well as place of prosperity, s repapng the
benefit.
While Florida lands are the most produc-
tive the year round they are cheaper than an
other states that have fewer advantages. In
fact, Florida lands are so much cheaper that
the earning power-the yielding power of the
investment,-is greater and thus the profits
are larger on less capital invested.
Again, Florida offers more opportunities
for making a living than any other country
on earth. No matter what his favorite pursuit
may be one can here have the opportunity of
enjoying it. There is, in fact, a wider range
of pursuits here in Florida than in any of the
States north of it, and any man of energy
and good character may take his choice and
make a living.
One thing that puts Florida far ahead of
other States is the social conditions. Else-
where a man without money has to force his
way in or live until his hair is white with
age; but here, if he is upright, honorable and
industrious, the door stands open to him and
he has a cordial welcome. In other words, a
man's standing in Florida does not depend
upon his having money, but character. Recog-
nition here is based on merit and not ludcre.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMBMT.
Tampa, Florida, is going to immediately
become the nucleus of the great fruit and
vegetable land activity in Florida, by reason
of the fact that during the recent cold map
-the severest test in a decade-Tampa fruit
and vegetable farms did not feel the slightest
ill effects. Not even the ripe fruits remain-
ing on the trees were affected; young plants
were not damaged. This pleasing result will
have the tendency to advance the prices of
all lands tributary to Tampa. We beg to
advise all persons interested in Florida lands
to buy at once in the vicinity of Tampa. We
reserve the right to withdraw all our fruit
and vegetable lands from the market at the
present prices, and to advance all prices after
a ten days' notice to that effect.

While the tourist tratns, as those "palaces
em whees" especially for the rich tourists
who come to Florida annually, will not begin
to peter Florida until this week. the State is
already lung up with isitors. There are
a great many here from various parts of the
country who have come to investigate coadi-
ions with a view of tivestin in Florida
ands and eontually locatita.
Fesd afe Set people who buy on the
strength of as a i~tlieselt and pack up
bag and baggage i iol to d ew Nection
before investigating. They are people whd
have quite a sum of money for legitimate ini
vestment, as a rule, and they are going to
thoroughly investigate before they decide
upon a location for Investment.
That is the clae of people who are really
wanted in Florida. No reputable real estate
dealer or land company can object to having
their propositions thoroughly investigated by
pole who may move to Florida and become
settles upon the property bought by them.
It would be the height of foolishness, not to
my presumption, for any individual or com-
py to make false representatitons to peo-
ple who ase nlvestigatnt for themselves.
It is always the bet policy to tell them
ProSpetive settlers the entire tfrth as to the
coat of clearlg land: te adaptability of the
soll for the growing of certain crops. and, tI
fact, everything in connection with the land.
They will Sad it out by investigation, and it
IS VSe pool policy to akate misepresenta-
tionk just ii order to sell a tract of land.
Another matter that should receive the at-
teation of the promoters of colonies is look-
tag after the settlers after they locate on the
lanJ. Some companies merely sell the land
and then take no further interest in the set-
tien. They do nothing toward helping them
aloei after they arrive and begin Improve-
ments. All they appear to care for Is to
make & male and secure the profits.
On the other hand several of the colonisa-
tion companies have established experimental,
or demonstration, farms where practical
demonstrations are given of the adaptability
of the soil for certain crops, and the proper
method of cultivating these crop as well as
marketing them. Temporary accommoda-
tions are provided for the settlers while they
are building their homes, and they are freely
advised as to the best methods of clearing
lad, fencing, ploughing, harrowing, etc.
These colonies are "making good," while oth-
ers have a large number of dissatisfied set-
tiers.
People seeking locations in Florida should
by all means investigate carefully before de-
ciding upon a location. Those who come here
can make a personal investigation. Those
who cannot come for some time should be
certain that they are dealing with a reliable
home company; a company that is organized
in Florida and oicered by Florida people
who are known and have a standing in their
own communities. Such companies can be
trusted and their representations relied upon,
as a rule. The standing of any company
can be obtained it inquiries are made in the
city or locality in which they are operating
or have their headquarters.

IRAIUD&' FINANCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL RECORD. YI T


Prom all parts of Florida come stories of
activity in real estate. Not only homemeek-
ers and investors from other states, but Flor-
ida people are investing more generally in
real estate this year than ever before.

Garden land on the edge of a great and
growing city is always in demand. The local
Market afforded by such a city affords the
grower the very best prices for his truck
with the least possible trouble and delay.

Homeseekers should beware of locating in
colonies in the backwoods, miles from the
nearest city. They should secure a location
near some growing city where there will al-
ways be a good local demand for their prod-
ucts.

According to the Tampa newspapers that
South Tampa colony proposition will prove to
be a winner from the start. It is reported
that there is already an active demand for
ten-acre garden tracts, and the property has
Just been placed on the market.

Florida offers more opportunities to the
man of moderate means to make a success
than any State in the Union. The combina-
tion of climate, soil, transportation facili-
ties and health, appeal to all. Now is the
time to invest in Florida real estate.

PROSPEROUS AND PROGRESSIVE.
Fort Meade is not only a notable prosphate
mining town, it is surrounded by a most fer-
tile soil, which will produce the finest vege-
that could be grown anywhere; with an excel-
lent home market to accommodate the grow-
er.-Fort Meade Observer.


The proposition of the Tampa Bay Land
Company to present to certain purchasers of
its South Tampa lands a free scholarship for
a course in agriculture and horticulture at
the University of Florida, is one that shows
the company .wishes to settle its lands with
people who are thoroughly equipped for cul-
tivation of lands in Florida. The scholarship
includes board and tuition for three months.

Dinsmore, one of the progressive communi-
ties of Duval county, only ten miles from the
city of Jacksonville, is growing at a lively
rate. There is an active demand for farm
and garden lands in that locality and the peo-
ple buying are making improvements. The
largest truck farm in the county is located
at Dinsmore and is owned by Mr. Wm. Mack-
lin, who has made a great success of it and
has demonstrated what can be grown at a
profit on Duval county lands.

EGGS IN FLORIDA.
The Orlando Reporter-Star is quareling
with the Gainesvllle Sun over the statement
that nine Kansas hens laid $25.56 worth of
eggs in eight months, and adds this slur on
Florida hens: "You can't convince a man
who has tried poultry raising in Florida that
nine hens would lay twenty dollars worth of
eggs in nine years. Then, too, these hens are
in Kansas, the land of wheat, not in the 'land
of Flowers.' " We just want to get into this
discussion long enough to say that there is a
housewife in Tampa who has ten hens-and
no more, by the way-and who has for the
past three weeks had from them an average
of five eggs per day, and sold eighty-seven of
the same for $5.80, besides boiling a few soft
for the old man's breakfast.-Tampa Times.


Florida has been called the "rich man's
playground" and has also been called "the
poor man's paradise." Both appellations are
correct. Florida welcomes all classes and
satisfies all classes.

SPECIAL MASTER'S SALE.
Notice is hereby given that under and by
virtue of the final decree of foreclosure made
by the Judge of the Circuit Court for Duval
County, Florida, in Chancery, on November
19th, 1909, in a certain cause therein pend-

FOURTUEL FLORIDA'S FINANCIAL AND INDUSTRIAL RECORD.


GROVE AND ORCHARD.
The Bay View Citrus Association has again
opened its exchange packing house after hav-
ing been shut down for three weeks. The
closed period was due to a scarcity of the kind
of fruit the managers considered ready for
the market, they having made up their minds
to wait until the proper time, at any odds,
allowing nothing but the very finest fruit to
go from their house. It is very probable that
no more periods of rest will be allowed them
until the close of the season, this being one
of the largest packing houses in the State,
and boasts of every modern convenience.-
Clearwater Pres.-

We hear from Little River that northern
investors have purchased one hundred and
fifyt acres, three miles northwest of the sta-
tion, with the intention of clearing the entire
tract and planting to avocadoes the coming
season. This will make the largest grove, of
this most promising of all tropical fruits, that
we know of. The avocado grows as naturally
here as does the ragweed along the dusty
roadway of the North, and wherever intro-
duced meets with instant favor. In Chicago
this year the fruit at the beginning and latter
and of the season, when the supply became
very limited, sold as high as 50 cents each.
We believe that the time is not far distant
when the avocado will be one of the chief
products of this section.-Mlami Metropolis.

The Leonardy grapefruit is named after a
relative of mine, but I do not say this boast-
ingly, but because it is a fact. Years ago a
quantity of oranges were brought to this
vicinity by others and a number of them were
given to my relatives. The seed was planted
and from it grew the Leonardy fruit that is
so popular today. Though the seed came from
the orange, it produced grapefruit, because
the tree that bore the oranges was grafted
on the grapefruit. All of the Leonardy grape-
fruit trees in this section came from buds
that came from the trees produced by leas
than a dosea original trees. The specie of
grapefruit is not large, but is extremely pal-
.atable, and there has been a big demand for
It in Years that have passed.-A. F. Leonardy
in St. Petersburg Independent.
About three miles south of Orlando is the
seventy-ive acre grove owned by Dr. Charles
Drennen, who will ship about 20,000 boxes
this season and is now sending out one or two
cars each day. Dr. Drennen packs in his own
packing house, to which he has made a recent
addition. The fruit goes out under a brand
of a capital D. The doctor believes in irriga-
tion, and has a powerful pump and gasoline
engine on his placemby means of which he can
give the ground a good soaking in a few
hours. He has calculated the cost of putting
on the water, which is just 10 cents a tree.
.8e thoroughly is he convinced as to the ne-
ceesity of thorough Irrigation that he declares
it to be foolish for anyone to expect to raise
,oranges or vegetables in Florida at a profit
unless one is prepared to give an adequate


water supply at all times. He advises those
who contemplate putting in irrigation plants
to arrange for double the supply of water
that they believe will be required. He gets
his water from an adjoining lake.-Tampa
Times.

GRAPE CULTURE IN PLORIDA.
Florida has experimented in grapes and
grape culture for many years with indifferent
success. Leon county has, perhaps the best
results in hardy grapes, such as are grown
in New Jersey and Delaware, miles north of
Florida on the Atlantic coat.
North Florida can, doubtless, grow any
grape in the temperate sone, but Florida can
grow the scuppernong as no other state in
the Union can. The fruit of this vine is lus-
cious and produces a wine that appeals to the
American taste, and the venture is made that
Europeans will say amen to it.
A single vine of this grape has been known
to have grown over a mile in length in St.
Johns county, just south of Duval county, and
this county has a growth of this fruit of
which she is justly proud. This vine can
be grown in any part of the state, and where-
ever grown it is a bread-winner. The wine
from the scuppernong is sought and so is the
fruit of the vine as a table luxury.
C. Fishback, of St. Johns county, has eight
scuppernong plants that cover an area of
10x600 feet, and his vineyard, of less than
three acres, yields him over one hundred bar-
rels of wine each year, which he sells on local
and foreign markets at 25 to 50 cents a quart.
J. M. Kelly and Joseph Charrett are also
manufacturers of excellent wines from the
scuppernong, and these dealers in the grape
and wines supply the local markets at good,
round prices.
These vineyards are not so large, but they
show or indicate the profits of the scupper-
nong on the eastern coast of the state.

NOTICE OF STOCKHOLDERS' MEETING.
