While Jefferson County is the natural nur-

been planted. This same land will produce
cotton, both the long and the short staple,
high grade tobacco, sugar cane, corn, oats,
hay and all kinds of vegetables, and the rais-

See the cut showing some of its cattle, which
will compare most favorably with those of

Any one visiting Jefferson County will be
sure to receive a cordial welcome, and every
facility will be afforded to see what is to be

GOOD WORK OP PROMOTERS.
,1ae l o Itaht Mny Settler to Florida and
D-evoped Idle Lads.
The following able article, regarding the
work of the "promoters," as some of the
S- Florida colonization land companies are call-
e d, written by Gilbert D. Leach, was publish-
,4 In last Sunday's Tampa Morning Tribune:
Throughout Florida there has existed for
S years an antipathy for the real estate or col-
Sny "promoter." Except in a few instances
where gross misrepresentations have been
S made. this feeling of antagonism has been
; ae of the greatest mistakes made by a lib-
erl people. Last week the DeLand News,
: ugally one of the greatest of "boosters"
* %amng the State exchanges, contained this:
More $3 an acre land has been sold for
$20 an acr in Florida this year than ever
before. The land sold at $20 an acre by col-
eUY schek ea be bought from regular real
Estate aenats or direct from owners at $3 to
* $5 per acre. The other $17 per is for the
,proinwtia.' Florida has been 'promoted' to
a Si- -the past year."
St the promoter has done a wonderful
work for Florida'in the past and especially
' n th year which has .ust ended. And he
; w do more in the year which has Just be-
-' gSu. ere and there have sprung up wildcat
Sse: e e to which there was no merit, but
those enticed to Florida by these schemes had
an opportunity to see real merit before they
tid tbehmlves up with any scheme, and
e ly a few returned home disusted with
APkft-d OWANX" Aft SWOON" 910010
rnrtiosa. On the whole, it has been ad
will continue to be, a clean-cut piece of buri-
nes, this promoting.
With exceptions that a one-armed man
could count on his fingers, these promoters
have chosen for their operations tracts of
land of known fertility, good location, near
shipping point and every advantage possible
to secure in combination with these first two
Suppose the land had been selling at $3
per acre. It was simply because there was
no one to purchase it and certainly none to
purchase it for the purpose of cultivation
after it was cleared. These promoters
brought people to Florida-desirable people-
industrious people with no drones among
them---and these people have begun makin
wealth for themselves and for the commu-
nity in which they have settled. Just look
back a year or two, taking any tract that
has been "promoted" from $3 an acre to
$20.00, and see if the land on every side of
it has not been raised in price, even if
It is held by. the owner or a real estate agent
who has not had the hardihood or the ability
to put through a colonization scheme or open
up a tract on his own account. Perhaps it
has not reached quite to the price of the col-
ony land, for the demand has been created
by advertising for that particular land-and
the promoter has paid out a good share of his
profits for the advertising from which the
neighboring land reaps benefit out of all pro-
Take the Hastings potato section for an
example. The advertising done by the pro-
moters of that section has raised the price of
land-uncleared pine land-as far away from
Hastings as the Bostwick section, across the
river and several miles to the north and
west. And, moreover, land that was sold at
$20 an acre in the east Palatka section-land
that had been just such $3 land as the News
mentions--could not be touched today for
$150 an acre. The big increase has come
-long after the promoter has done his work,
reaped his profit and turned his attention'to
The promoter is the pioneer. He doAs
more than any other one class of people
to bring desirable citizens into the state, and
certainly the state needs more citizens. Even
the press does not exceed the work done by
the promoter, for he must receive credit for
a large share of the work of the press in this
field for he pays liberally for advertising
space and calls the attention of the press to
advantages and features which otherwise
would be overlooked.
Taking it all in all, the people of Florida
are indebted to the honest promoter for his
work and instead of censure for the profits
he may make, he deserves great praise for his
courage in pioneering. For he must spend
much money before he can see a cent of
profit, he must take all the risk, and he earns
every cent of profit he may make. There are
honest promoters and unprincipled pro-
moters. Make the life of the rakerr" a mis-
ery to him if you please, but extend the hand
of fellowship to the honest promoter, for he
is working for your gain as well as his own.
Orange county had an eight-page write-up
in last Friday's Times-Union. The lower end
of the State believes in advertising, and they
get the people. It probably cost the enter-
prising citizens of Orlandp, Sanford, and the
other towns, about $2,500, and they will get
a half million back. Some day, the upper end
of Florida is going to begin such a campaign
-and let us hope it may not be far distant.
When this occurs, we shall spell prosperity
with a big "P."-Lake City Index.
FRIENDS U O pUmE.
At the January meeting the CouWty M -
mlioioners of Osceola ordered another S00
yearly subscriptions to the Valley Gasett
for distribution to Northern people who have
evinced an interest in Florida, aakiag a total
of 1,000 annual subscriptions the eoauty Lha
given this paper.
The Kissimmee Valley Gazette is one of
the most consistent and systematic booster
of its section among the papers of Florida
and the commissioners could not Mad a meth-
od of expending such a small sum aad sear-
ing such great results equal to that they have
adopted. But as a whole, the press of Florida
forms the greatest "Boosters' Club" ay
State ever had. Nowhere else i the world
are papers so closely allied in Interest a are
the weekly papers of Florida, from the smSB-
est to the largest. * Never a week ppes that
every one does not chronicle something ad-
vancing the interests of the State. If the
can't find anything in their own sections to
write about, the editors of thee papers bot
for the State as a whole.
Some of these papers. are published n
sparsely settled sections and the wonder i
that they live. It is more wonderful tll that
they maintain their high pressure of optl-
mism under difculties. Truly, Florda ow

the untiring efforts of the weekly pries a a
whole and it would be well If other eaonmi-
saoners follow the example of Ooeela sad
assist their struggling weekly papers to mai-
tain a circulation, so that their adverti ea
patronage will insure their omtiuanue. It
will be money well invested for all coeerned.
ALL COMING TO F MPIUDA.
Erecting hotels to -the north and to the
west of Florida to catch a part of the Florda
tourists, has evidently proven allures, as
there are more tourists now in Florida tha

An increase of passengers hand l to

district passenger agent for the Illtnols Oea-

from omcial passenger receipts. The Florida
travelers started to their annual winter home
earlier this season than last, heace th phe-

Mr. Miller said today that this season will

Prom all actions of Florlda come reports
to the effect that the late cold snap did very
little damage. Vegetables were not injured
along the lower east coast and train loads are
being shipped through Jacksonville daily to
various parts of the country. Florida is,
without doubt the winter garden of America
as well as the rich man's playground and the
poor man's paradise.
Ten aeres of Florida land, close to the

sometimes three crops ape raised on the same

Opportunity! Yes, this is truly the day of
opportunity in Florida. There are greater
opportunities for the man of energy to make

opportunities will always have cause to regret
The famous Mr. Dooley is quoted as having
the following to say about "opportunity":
"Opporchunity knocks at very man's dure
want. On some men's dures it hammers till
it breaks down the dure and then it goes in
an' wakes him up if he's asleep, and afther-
ward it wurrks f'r him as a night watchman.
On other men's dures it knocks and runs
away, an' on the dure if some men it knocks
an' whin they come out it hits thim over the

Mr. Dooley was right as to opportunity, es-
pecially here in Florida. No one can read a
newspaper published in Florida without hav-
ing not one but dozens of opportunities pre-
sented to him. Some of the very best and
safest opportunities are those presenting real
estate investments. There is no safer or
sounder investment on earth than real estate.
Well selected real estate investments. There
is no safer or sounder Investment on earth
than real estate. Well selected real estate
in a community of ever increasing values.
At the rate which Jacksonville, Tampa and
other cities are growing, all property values
are bound to advance materially and those
who take advantage of present day opportun-
ities for investment, are the ones that will
make handsome profits on their investments.

LAWsON IB GETTING HIS.
Thomas W. Lawson. author of "Frensled
FiTaaee" is certainly getting his deserts these
day from some of the newspapers of the coun-
try, and as Lawaon once spent big money in
advertising in a large number of newspapers,
and through their advertisements succeeded
na hoodwinkiag vat numbers of people, he
will ao doubt realize that he has come to
the end of his rope now that the papers have
opened up on him.
In diaceusing the manner in which Law-
oa is bedig shown up in his true colors.
Reach's Financial Facts says: "For years,
Lawsoa, through the liberal use of money,
ha been able to exploit his sure-thing game
in the newspapers of the country. Now he is
fading the columns of the reputable newspa-
pers closed to him. Last week the Philadel-
phia North American, the oldest daily news-
aper in the United States, and one of the
highest toned, refused Mr. Lawson's adver-
tilement, devoting instead a column of edi-
toral to May the Boston fakir. ays the
" 'We thiak of all the double-riveted, cop-
perhottomed, lead-pipe cinches ever con-
eelved to transfer the earnings from the pock-

stances to the pockets of a superlative artist
in enticing words your scheme is about the
best and safest. If you are fighting the Wall
street devil, we do not ask you to arm your-
self only with asqairt gun, full of rose water.
Rob the fellow of your sine who are out to

game. Don't take candy from children!
Don't plaeh the penar e from the blind man's
cup! Don't sandbag old women! Give back
the hundreds to the little fellows you have

"Posag as a mainin man, Lawson had
ben a master-shark in the lowest forms of
stock-swldling. He has been able, by means
of his ill-acquired wealth, to fool a great
many people for a long time, but his little
day is drawla to a close. He is going the
way of all fakira who play the game too dar-
ingly and too long."
DUWAR O( Ti Bl SWINDLERB.
Now that the era of prosperity has dawn-
ed aad the streanous times that prevailed
during and after the so-called panic are be-
ang rapidly forgotten, there is renewed activ-
ity in stock-gambling. People are agata risk-
ing their surplus in all kinds of foolish pro-
Jecmt whee big returns ae promised by
swindlers tstead of iavestang tin ate and
Msund seertes like real etate.
SHee is a sample of the methods used by
a BreeklIy N. Y., "Profeesor" to separate
the specalators from their ea uad prom-
JM~ I) bg returns by followtL his syam:
"U th e wa evm a Stie that s ha ket-
SWall- street it is my new system in Steel
common. This system is a sure winner and
a great profit maker. Your risk is limited
and very small and your profits are unlimited
and sometimes very large. Every $100 in-
vested and operated according to the princi-
pal rules of the system will bring you from
$500 to $1,000 profit yearly-with the addi-
tional rules, 5 or 10 times as much.
"I consider this new system to be worth
thousands of dollars. But as very few will
be able or willing to pay a large sum for a
system before knowing the merits of the
same, I decided to ask for it from the first
subscriber only $100. This $100 can be paid
to me in a following way: Send me $10
and I will give you the full explanation of the
principal rules of the system. With these
rules alone you will be able to make from
$500 to $1,000 on every $100 invested. Af-
ter being convinced (in three or four weeks
you will surely be) that what I claim is cor-
rect, send me the balance and I will give you
the additional rules from which you will
learn how to make thousands of dollars on
original investment of only $100.
"In conclusion, I will say that In subscrib-
ing to my new system you will never regret
it, for you will soon find out that there is
more money to be made with less risk and
worry than in any other business imagina-
Now, it certainly seems that after so many
exposures of similar frauds no person would
be foolish enough to risk a dollar in trying
to secure the "system," which, if is would
work as claimed, no man would sell for such
a paltry sum as $100, but it is a fact that
there are hundreds of people who answer
Just such fraudulent advertisements and, of
course, lose their money.
The professor declares that he gets his
revenues from a percentage of the net profits
of those who "play" his system, on a scale of
one-third of $200, one-fourth of $$300, ten
per cent on $1,000 and so on.
It is needless to say that this is only an-
other scheme for hoodwinking investors and
leading the lamb to the slaughter in the
Wall street mare's nest of speculation.
Another system or snare being put out to
Inveigle the investors into Wall street specu-
lation is also attracting some attention and
is no doubt bringing in big money to the pro-
moters. Under this system the capital used
to "rob" Wall street "may be as small as you
please," says the promoter, and "an operat-
ing limit of 25 per cent will lead to ultimate
profits." This plan snares speculators with
the promise that "dividends can be drawn
every three months, which will soon refund
The promoters of both of these swindles
are keeping an eye open day and night for
persons with money who are anxious to go
down into the financial mart and defeat Mor-
gan, Rockefeller, Ryan and other moneyed
kings In the game of fleecing the public.
Florida has repeatedly furnished victims
of just such swindle and it is sincerely hoped
that they have learned their lessons and in
future will be content to invest their surplus
in the best security on earth--the earth It-
self-which can be bought at the present
time in Florida at prices that insure large
profits on the investment with absolutely no
element of risk.

Judging from the large numbiWl letters
received from all parts of the country Flor-
Ida is certainly one of the best known States
In this country today and there* is every
prospect of a large increase th* OpeIsiaMm
of the State within a very short aim.
Some of the letters received, however, ar
from people who have evidently faled to
make a success in anything they have uaea-
taken. Some say frankly that the writer hbe
no money, but that he wants to come to Fle-
Ida and wants to get a paying positio whie
he can make a living and buy a orang
grove or a good truck farm.
That is a very laudable ambition, but whP
a man has never succeeded suleatly to
save up some money in the place where he
was' raised and where he has friends he I@
not apt to succeed at the very start it an -*
tirely strange community.
There are numbers of instances that eoald
be cited where people of very limited ma=s
have come to Florida and have made a great
success in agricultural pursuits. But. re-
member, these people had a little somethb
to start on. While there are great epporta-
ities in Florida for men of energy to mused
and to make moderate fortunes, aU&l Shl
have enough ready cash to support themomelvs
for a time at least until they can get started
No man without money can go out int the
woods of Florida and expect to make a iv-
ing from the very start from the saoL ns

fencing it and getting it rea4y for eultivt
tion. He must have sqoney enough to buy

expect to make a living from. ,They Will hav
to have a horse or a mule to plow their ad.
They will be at some necessary eipem fer
some time to come before they can gaer
from their land the first crop.
All of this should be taken into conspera-
tion before deciding to leave their did h-~
and move into a new locality. Of eons a
man of energy and determination .to - ses
can make a living here with but sam l amrstal
but a man without capital had batter stay
away for awhile. Florida wants sttlem bot
It wants men who can start in with; e*ag
capital to support themselves for awhile
It takes very little money to buy laI ti
Florida, especially on the monthly iugrt
plan, but sometimes letters arem- Tisalve
from people who say that they want to buy a
piece of land in Florida, but havtaig o 'n- y
money they want to arrange to pay Is4t oat
of their first crop of oranges or *-gtaes or
products of the soil of some hind that the
will raise after arriving. Now, how "f the
world do such people expect to be ï¿½ae to
clear their land, pay for the lamber--'* Lfee-
ing, pay for plowing or for the hire of a has
or mule, and pay all the expenses that nator-
ally arise while the place is being prepared
for the cultivation of the first crop?
People owning Florida lands are not ms
anxious to dispose of them that they are gong
to stand all the expense of getting a- fafmi
started on the road to prosperity merely to
dispose of a five or ten-acre tract.
There are even instances whore m have
written that they want to come to Florida
and will come at once if some Idividual or
company will send them the money to pay
railroad fare from their homes. That clam
of individual is most assuredly not wasted ti
Florida. Florida wants men who have mtad
a success elsewhere; men who have poah ad
energy; men who can help themselves ad
will net depend upon others for a lviag. To
this class of men there are gold oportul-
ties in Florida and they will lad that'the
climate is such that they can work every day
in the year and that they can have- maa one
or more crops maturing every month in the
year, while in their present locations they
have to remain idle for four months or more
and are dependent on one crop from the
same soil a year.

Coaches for Raiload Have Arrived and

There are quite a number of people now
in Florida who own farm and grove tracts in
Keystone Park Colony, near Tarpon Springs,
in Hillsborough county, who will be interest-
ed in the following concerning the Tampa and
Gulf Coast Railroad, which runs directly
through the colony, taken from the columns
of the Tampa Morning Tribune:
"Prom Philadelphia, two passenger
coaches, Nos. 101 and 102, have arrive in
the city for use by the Tampa & Gulf Coast
road, in the operation of trains between this

"Today these cars will be conveyed to

made arrangements for the beginning of

RATES FOR HOMEBEEKERS.
Efort to Have Them Effective During Win-
ter Months Is Being Made.
"Resolved, That it is the sense of this con-
vention, composed of the delegates of the
boards of trade from all parts of the State,
that it is the imperative and immediate duty
of the railroads concerned to take the neces-
sary steps to reestablish the homeseeker's
rates and to otherwise continue to encourage
and aid in the work which has recently be-
gun; and in no other way can the railroads
render so important public service to the
State, than to promptly restore these rates.
"Resolved, That the railroads cannot aford
to place themselves any longer in the posi-
tion of hampering, checking and obstructing
the good work which has been so well start-
The above was included in the resolutions
adopted by the convention of delegates rep-
resenting a number of boards of trade of the
State recently held in Jacksonville, and now
that the Christmas rush is over the subject is
one that should receive the earnest attention
of every organisation and every individual
in Florida interested in seeing the State
settled with a desirable class of settlers
It is a well known fact that without some
coaeessoa in the way of cheap transportation
it is almost impossible to get homeasekers to

Florida has been and is being advertised
exteasively by the real estate dealers and
land companies throughout the North and the
Northwest and if the people of those sections
could secure cheap rates to Florida during
the winter season they would come here,
investigate, and a vast number would be-
The railroads do not allow the homeseek-
ers' rates to remain n effect during the win-
ter eason because that is the time of year the
rich tourists flock to the State ad the roads
get about all the business they can conven-
ently handle with' AWeS--&M etutBI
and facilities. They claim that it will net
pay them to make any concessions whatever
during the tourist season, which extends
through January, February and March, and,
therefore, all homeseekers' rates to all ex-
cept Western Florida points are withdrawn
during those months.
But there is another side to the question.
The people who are looking toward Florida
are, as a rule, the farmers of the North apd
Northwest. These people are cooped up on
their farms in the winter, unable to do any-
thing whatever in the way of farming on ac-
count of the extreme cold. If cheap rates
were afforded them they would come to Flor-
ida during the winter months and investi-
gate. Without the inducement offered by
cheap rates they will not come to Florida, but
will go to Texas and California and other
parts of the country where these cheap rates
are in effect during the winter months.
Now, the coming of these people mean
much to the entire State, and it seems to be
a certainty that the railroads would make
far more out of these settlers in the long run
by aiding in the settlement of the State than
they will make by cutting off the cheap rates,
and in this manner turning the tide of set-
tiers to other parts of the country. If the
railroads are really friends of Florida they
have a splendid opportunity to prove their
The preamble to the resolutions quoted
above, contained the following statement,
which will receive the unanimous endorse-
ment of every person familiar with the sub-
"Whereas, The homeseeker coming from
eastern, western and northern States, can
only make the trip to Florida during the
winter season, at a time when he is leat
busy, and this is the time that afords the
best contrast for the homeseker, between the
balmy winter months of Florida as compared
with the froeza conditions of the section
from which he came; and
"Whereas, In the judgment of this conven-
tion, the acquisition of one permanent sot-
tier is of greater importance to the perma-
nent welfare of the State, as well as the per-
manent profit of the railroads than the toe-
porary presence of the transient tourist agd
"Whereas, The Florida railroads should be
equally interested with the Florida people in
the growth and development of the State, ad

paoes to continue to advrtise Florida de

SAMTA MORA'S DEMONSTRATION FARM.
It Is with pleasure that The Record pub-

"A number of the subscribers to the

to put the farm Into actual operation as soon
as the necessary preliminaries for doing so
can be satisfactorily arranged.
It was thought beat to organize the move-

THE AMERICAN HEN.
A distinct tendency is noticeable to ap-
praise and appreciate at her true worth the
American ben. For this there are good rea-
sons. The consumer of eggs which sell for
50 cents a dozen, for instance, is rapidly be-
ginning to think of the hen as one of aur
most highly capitalized institutions. On the
other hand, the farmer is coming to think of
his flock of chickens as about as valuable as
his herd of cattle.
In this connection a Western agricultural
expert has accumulated some information
about the hen in which a public that pays al-
titudinous prices for eggs will have an inter-
est. He declares the hen has become the
most valuable living creature the American
farmer possesses. She eats little, but under
fair conditions produces five times her weight
in eggs in a year.
What this expert is urging the people who
raise poultry to do is to try to make the hen
lay more eggs and lay the kind that will bring
the top-notch prices. He points out that in
some States the average number of eggs of
a hen each year is more than 150.
A long-suffering public will find no fault
with any scheme to increase the egg supply.
If the average can be doubled and the hen
induced to quit her habit of taking a vaca-
tion in the winter season there will be a
much greater degree of contentment in this
Mr. H. Sewell, local agent for the Florida
Everglade Company, returned from the lake
on Tuesday night and brought down from his
place on the south-east shore a fine bnanan
plant which is now on exhibition in front of
the office on the corner of First and Jackson
streets. The plant, which Is one of many
planted in May, is a large and thrifty one and
is bearing. It stands in some of the same
soil in which it was grown. Mr. Sewell re-

BIG FLORIDA CUCUMBE.
The largest cucumber ever grown in this
region was brought into town from Solana
last Saturday by Mr. H. K. Farrell who is
one of our moat successful truckers. Weigh-
ing two pounds and seven ounce it would
have taken a prise for superb cucumbers. It
was perfect in shape and had a form similar
to a watermelon of the long variety.
Mr. Farrell has just finished marketing his
cucumbers. He planted only about a quarter
of an acre. more for experiment than any-
thing else, and he has shipped 145 hampers,
on which he is receiving good returns.
The method of planting whlh Mr. Farrel
has adopted, would probably prove profitable
if adopted by other trukers. When putting
in cucumbers, he sets tomato plants amongst
them, and by the time he finlshe marketing
his cucumbers the tomatoes are beginning
to bear.. Thus he makes two crops on a cer-
tain piece of ground at the same time. He
has orange trees growing on his place, and
amongst these, In wate, he pulante s VA -
tables in such a way that the trees protect
them from the cold.
This is only one illustration of what en-
ergy, and ingenuity can accomplish in Flor-
Ida. People of the necessary energy, deter-
mination and hustle can make big money cul-
tivating Florida land.
CAULIFLOWER CROP MOVING.
Sanford,-The cauliflower crop is begin-
ning to move in good earnest. By the close
of the present week car lots are expected to
roll. Those going forward are exceedingly
attractive, color and form perfect, and in sise
running from ten to twelve to the hamper.
Since the fame of the Sanford, Gary and
Manatee county celery crops spread over the
land, via the newspaper and agricultural pub-
lication route, there has been aroused tI
various parts of the county a lively celery
interest on the part of men in less suitable
sections who think they can raise the same
quantity and get the same prices as the el-
erymen of Florida. The latest quarter to
take a lease on celery enthusiasm is Arkan-
sas City, Ark., the State of Jel Davis and
Carrie Nation, and where a woman farmer,
Mrs. F. W. Dean, grew some fine, big stalks
and sent them for exhibition to the cross-
roads store. New the farmers of Kansas City
are sitting about the store and figuring the
celery profits (?) of another year.-Pensa-
BUSY SHIPPING VEGETABLiS
Miami, January 14.-The truckers i* this
southern section are a busy lot of men now,
and large shipments of all kinds of vegetables
are being daily made from this station, while
all the stations south of here are sending for-
ward shipments each day. rrom Buena Vis-
ta, Lemon City, Little River, Arch Creek, and
other stations north of Miami in Dade coun-
ty are sending their full quota of products
along. The vegetable fields were never in
better condition than at the present time, and
planting on the glade lands is moving alog
rapidly. There has been a lack of rain for
the past few weeks, but last night the rna
clouds came up and gave this entire seeties a
liberal wetting, which will be worth thou-
sands of dollars to the farmers in this south-
ern section. So far this season there has been
almost an entire absence of diseased plants.

The Introduction of the cup and apron

as a thousand caps in a day and the annual
squabble over labor during the box cutting
season is practically eliminated, in as much
as the amount of labor required during the
eup hanging season is about one-half the
amount needed for box cutting. Any place re-
quiring many crops of new boxes cut during

this commodity goes through this port and it
is plain to be seen that within a very few
years, as the naval stores production and
necessarily the naval stores market moves
southward, Fernandina will become the ship-
ping point for the greater portion of the en-
tire production of this commodity.
It will be seen that Fernandina's naval
stores exports this year was greater than the
combined exports of several other Southern
ports, including the other ports of Florida.
. The following report is a correct statement
of the facts:
During the year ending June 30, 1909,
Fernandina exported 388,702 barrels of rosin
and 4,432,252 gallons of turpentine, valued
at $3J231,591. This is nearly three times
the aggregate value of exports of naval stores
of Baltimore, Boston, Brunswick, Charleston,
Norfolk, Philadelphia, Jacksonville and Wil-
mington, the combined exports of all these
ports during the year named being valued
at but $1,166,091. New York's exports of all
these commodities during that period were
valued at $2,348,315, Fernandina leading
that port by about $1,000,000; Fernandina's
exports also exceeded the combined exports
of Galveston, Mobile, New Orleans, Pensaco-
la and Tampa.
For the year ending June 30, 1900, Per-
nandlna's exports of naval stores was valued
at only $92,500, while for the year ending
June 30, 1909, as stated above, they amount-
ed to $3,231,591, a gain in nine years of 3,-
500 per year.
BIG CUTS FOR TURPENTINE.
According to advices from Wilmington, N.
C., one of the largest round timber cuts for
virgin turpentine ever made in North Caro-
lina, and certainly the largest in recent years,
has been made at Shallotte, Brunswick coun-
ty. There, recently, 80,000 boxes were cut,
and more are to be cut, up to 150,000. This
will give a big yield of turpentine, and it is
estimated that it will mean an increase of the
naval stores business for Wilmington of about
$50,000 a year for ten years.
TURPENTINE LAND DEAL. /
From the Dade City Star, of current issue,
the following important announcement is
taken of one of the largest transfers of land
made in this State so far this year. Mr. Mc-
Leod returned from Pasco county yesterday:
George A. McLeod, the Tampa capitalist,
who already owns large interests in this
county, has bought the immense turpentine
holdings of E. J. Gasque, all of which is sit-
uated in Pasco county.
This deal consists of large and well equip-
ped stills, a large tract of excellent timber
lands, horses, mules, wagons and other neces-
sary equipment for the operation of the
farms. The purchase price of this property
Swags about $100,000. .A
For about six years Mr. McLeod was a res-
ident of this county before moving to Tamipa
about four years ago, and has been a large
investor and firm believer in Pasco county
tIse hle. arst visit here, ten years ago. His
Immediately after this deal was onsum-
mated Mr. McLeod sold to J. L. Oren, the
big Pasco county lumber man, the sawmfil
privileges of the entire tract except ive thou-
sand acres which was purchased by the In-
gram-Dekle Lumber Company. hit addattle
to Mr. Greer's holdings probably places him
the largest individual lumberman ha this
State. His success as a lumberman has bees
great and is due to his superior knowledge
of the business in every particular, and his
steady and industrious efforts. He richly de-
serves the great success he has made.
The Ingram-Dekle Lumber Company is
also a fast-growing and successful lumbering
concern, which figures lively in this deal. The
purchase of the milling rights of ive thou-
sand acres of this tract together with other
large purchases recently made, places this
young but strong company among the largest
and best equipped in the county.
This large sale does not mean that Mr.
Gasque is out of the turpentine business as
he still retains his interests in the turpen-
tine holdings of M. J. Dooner & Co., nt this
county, and also the Gasque & Quan Com-
pany in Manatee county. He also retalt his
beautiful home in this city and will remata
among us.-Tampa Tribune.

The Record is In receipt of information
relative to the organization of a steamship
company, which will operate vessels between
this port and point in Cuba and Central
America. The application for the charter of
the new company has been made and the arti-
cles of incorporation call for a capitalization
of three million dollars.
Several details necessary to the final or-
anisation of the company, not being conm-
pleted, prevent the publication of the names
of the incorporators, but it is stated that be-
sides the Jacksonville men who will be aso-
dated with the company, there will be sever-
al prominent capitalists from Georgia and
Mississipp. A meeting of those interested
in the organization of the company was held
yesterday and most of the details were dis-
Scused and approved, but a further meeting
is thought advisable before the plans of the
company are made public.
A Partal Pospect
A partial prospectus of the operations of
the company shows two lines of freight and
peassger ships will be handled from Jack-
sonville, one running by way of Miami to
Havana, Cuba, and Colon, and the other by
way of Miami and Key West to Colon. An-
other coastwias line is proposed for opera-
tion on the south side of Cuba, with Havana
as the main point of business.
Not only do the plans include the lines
from this port to the southward, but it is
proposed to have steamers operating from
northern ports of the Atlantic coast to con-
nect with the Jacksonville line. To carry on
such an extensive business as is planned, the
company is well aware of the necessity of
having a Seet of steamers which in point of
passenger and freight accommodations, will
meet all possible competition and to this end
several good ships will be selected.
The establishment of the new line was
prompted by the assurance given by the pre-
vious operations of the American and West
Indian Steamship Company of this city, and
it s almost assured that the Interest of the
latter cancer will be taken over by the new
company within a few weeks.
Those in touch with the plans of the in-
corporators state that as the application for
the charter has been made, the full report
and names of the stockholders will be given
out at an early date. With such a favorable
description of the plans of the new company
as outlined, Jacksonville would be greatly
benefited through the Inauguration of the
proposed steamship lines.
LAmD SALB AT CRAWPOKD.
Orawford.-Mr. D. H. Miller, sales agent
for the real estate frm of Weller & McClure,
DOyto. 0., arrived here Wednesday night
with a purt of prospective lead buyers Aft-
er a day spent looking over the plat and
other places of Interest, Mr. Miller closed a

and Mr. S. Coffman for fifty acres. Them

OPTION ON TIMBER TRACT.
Option on 5,000 acres of land in the Upper
Alaia River section, adjoining the Polk
county line and eighteen miles from Tampa,
was sold yesterday by Col. T. M. Wier, of the
Wier Realty Co., to M. D. King, a Georgia
capitalist. The consideration was fifteen dol-
lars an acre or $75,000. Some time ago Col.
Wier secured the option on this tract, which
is one of the finest containing round virgin
timber in South Florida and which is also
rich in phosphate deposits.
Mr. King has not signified his Intention as
to the development of this property, but
there is reason to believe that he will mine
the phosphate and will soon erect a big plant-
The tract Is just west of the Bone Valley
phosphate plant and is In the northeastern
section of Hillsborough county.
This is one of the most valuable options se-
cured in many months in this territory.-
IT HELPS ALL IWEB.
The Polk County Record tells of the flood
of letters that poured into the promoters of
the canning factory at Ocala as soon as the
fact that it was to be started was announced
and says: "If we can give employment to peo-
ple we shall have a deluge of them. And one
thing helps out another. Here the factory
gives employment to labor and induces the
planting of vegetables. The planting' of
vegetables gives employment to more labor,
the sale of lands, etc. New people must be
fed and clothed; they will patronize the gro-
cery and dry goods stores; the doctors will
get an occasional call: the schools and
"churches will have an increased enrollment
and the newspapers will get an enlarged pat-
ronage, and in time a great community will
be built up." This is a correct picture of
conditions when a community starts on the
upward grade. The start the difficult part.
The movement grows easier as it progresses.
KNOCKERS NOT WANTED.
The Lake Butler Star must "have it in"
for "the next town," for it says: "There is
always a place in Lake Butler for good peo-
ple, industrious and energetic. Such people
are a blessing to any place and ever find the
welcome of friend or brother. We want to
see them come, and more of them. But
there is no room here for drones, idlers and
'knockers.' They had best try the next
town." If the Star will give the name of
that "next town" to which drones, idlers and
knockers are invited that town will soon as-
sume metropolitan proportions.

TAMPA LEAD THE WOULD.
Tampa shipped 270,000,000 clear Hav sa
cigars to the markets of the world during the
year 1909. It is interesting to compare the
exports from Havana of cigars during the
same period and official figures have bess ob-
tained for the year, up to December 16, 1*09,
from the returns of the Cuban custom hebM
These show that the mother of the great
industry exported 172,806,483 elgars, Ad
that this ,was a decrease for the yea of
5,584,052. Tampa, on the other head, bad
substantial increase I its shipment evr

West Palm Beach.-W. W. Corlet, an at-
torney, representing the Jefferson sate
came to this city a week ago, accompanied by
Frank Jefferson, one of the heirs, and ti
that time has made a number of important
sales of property of the Jefferson esate.
Among them are: The Jefferson bloek, in
which the Beagle House is located, on Cle
matts avenue, considered the finest sngle
business block in the city, to Mrs. J. R. An-
thony. Jr. It is understood that the prie
paid was somewhere near $30,0A0. The
property was bought by Mr. Simon ieward,
for his daughter, Mrs. Anthony.
Another sale was the two vacant lots on
Clematis avenue, opposite the Tropical Bu
ofce, to J. R. Anthony, Jr.
H. T. Cummings purchased from the Jet-
ferson estate the property now occupied by
him. J. H. Brophy bought from the amrs
parties the property he is now occupying on
Fowler Bros. were the purhasers of the
old ice factory on Olive street, near the C(ath

The Jefferson estate sold to the Carrie In.
vestment Company what is known as the
Jefferson addition. This is the tract of ka
south of town between Olive street and
county road, opposite the residence of Mr.
T. L. Chadbourne.
This is part of the large property holdtia
which were acquired by the late Joaegh Jet6

there are only a few more pieces of proper

PLANTING A GROVE.
A writer asks the coat per acre for plant-
Ing an rage grove. The following, taken
from one of our State exchanges, pretty thor-
oughly covers the question:
OW acre of land.................. $36.00
Clearing and breaking ............. 1.00
Fens. three strands wire .......... 10.00
0e hundred budded trees set...... 50.00
Two pounds fertillser to tree.. ..... 6.00
Total ....................... $106.00
The price of the land may be less or it may
be more, which would be regulated by its
availability. The cast of clearing might also
Aetuate, but it is hardly probable that it
would. The trees can be had for les than
the price quoted, as the writer has ktown
them to sell for 15 cents each, which price
was for two-year-old buds on thre-year-old
stocks, giving a five-year growth to begin
with Such trees would Increase very rapidly
as year thereafter.-DeLad News.
WPurogT OW THE F1REM33.
Naturally the citrus fruit conditions in
Florida, since the unusually cold weather of
last week have been the great topic of inter-
e* and discussion throughout the citrus belt
of the State. As usual in such cases, some wild
statements as t the damage done, gained cir-
elatUo- for a few days, but on full investi-
gaion it has been found that taking the or-
aee belt as a whole, the damage has been
light And when it is considered that Cali-
eornia has suffered f more than Florida and
the consequent rise 4 prices for the remain-
der of the season, it will be found that we
haqe not much cause to complain of old
Bmmes after all.
We have made careful inquiries of rella-
ble growers throughout this county and the
views expressed by them are strictly in ac-
cord with those expressed above.-Bartow
ORANGBS AT PLANT CITY.
The Courier makes this statement of the
shipments of oranges from Plant City up to
the calendar year: "Total number of oranges
up to December 01 shipped over the S. A. L.
was 52,788 boxes, and over the P. C. A. and
G., 27,9C2. Increase over last year on S. A.
L. was 16,762, on P. C. A. and G., 4,014."
The increase is a substantial one and prices
Lave been good.
NPROM TH MANATME sBCTION.
Bradentown.-The pessimist was labor-
ing over time last week in an endeavor to
pgove that the recent cold snap had greatly
Injured all citrus fruits and he even insisted
that the celery crop had been given a serious
stback-eve droyed, na some iastances--
bt the optimist now has his inning, and
tae Is aple proof that the damage to cel-
ey Is all ad c tru traits have suffered but
slight damage. A careful survey of the vari-
one celery farms lying adjacent to this city,
shows that the crop Is in prime condition and
the output will be fully up to expectations
both as to quantity and quality. The Citrus
Exchange halted all packing in the county at
the beginning of the cold weather and will
not resume work until the latter end of the
week in order that there may be no chance
of shipping fruit that might be in an unmar-
ketable condition. A few independent pack-
ers will probably continue to force fruit on
the market, but in the main there is no dispo-
sition to take the chances of forwarding stuff
that will not pass muster. Manatee county,
generally, has shown as she always does,
that nature's cold shoulder is kindly temper-
ed when it reaches here, and her standard
-products are never a failure as a result of
state-wide temperature tumbling.
It may be safely and broadly asserted that
there is no material damage to either fruit or
BRIGHT PROSPECTS AT ORLANDO.
Orlando.-Every day seems to bring better
prospects for the oranges. Nearly half of the
crop in this county had been gathered when
the freese came. Of the remaining half
there are a great many groves in the vicinity
of Winter Garden and Apopka that are un-
hurt. In this Immediate vicinity fruit is
dropping from the most exposed groves.
The more recent cold wave over the North
seems to have started people Floridaward
and they are coming on every train.
A Northern gentleman who lives at a
fashionable summer resort on the Jersey
coast, remarked that the crying need of Or-
lando to 200 good houses and cottages to
rent. He said there would be 5,000 or 10,000
more winter residents here every year if
there were good comfortable places to live in.
POINTER FOR FLORIDA VISITORS.
So much is said about Florida as a land of
sunshine that many people who cross the
State line for the first time and find that
winter is not summer, complain as If they
had been swindled. The Punta Gorda Her-
ald makes a suggestion that such persons
should remember when it says: "Whenever
It is cold in Florida, even mildly so, it is cold
enough in all the other States to freese a
man's ears off, if they are not covered up.
But it never gets cold enough on this penin-
sula to prevent a man from working out of
doors. He can work out of doors every day
in the year, but, to make a good living, he
need not work more than )ix months in each
year." Another thing that should be consid-
ered is that Florida extends five hundred
miles from north to south. It is as foolish
to complain about not finding Key West
weather in Jacksonville as it would be to
complain about not finding Jacksonville
weather at Charlotte or Chattanooga, for
Jacksonville is further north of Key West
-than it is south of Charlotte or Chattanooga.
