Florida, which not many years ago
was a sleepy peninsula, now ranks
among the most progressive states of
the South. She tilts her sunburned
nose so far down toward the Tropics
that only here, in all the United States,
can you pick coconuts from their lofty
habitat—that Is, if you climb well!
Her map spot in the sun gives
Florida on odd character. Tt makes
her, economically speaking, dual-faced,
On one side, the real Florida: vast,
sparsely settled, strewn with fruit and
farm colonies, cow ranches, sawmills,
turpentine mille, seaports, cizar fac-
tories, smelly fisheries, and industries
that produce, among other things, in
commercial quantities, fuller's earth,
kaolin, titanium oxide, and-—be it
proudly said—about 85 per cent of this
country's supply of phosphate rock.
On the other side, familiar to win-
.er visitors, a strangely different state.
Through long, drill months she drowses
and suns herself; yet from December
to March, gay, boisterous, and bizarre,
she affords an astounding spectacle of
massed humanity, idle, yet often ath-
letically active, probably without
parallel anywhere,
The tourist trek to Florida is unique;
Lor, lured by sun, sea, and the in-
stinctive love of outdoors, people turn
toward Florida each winter, at which
time her population almost doubles.
By train, motor, boat, and plane this
army comes. One even sees walkers
and men on bicycles, a suitcase lashed
atop the handlebars. Through Lake
City and Jacksonville, more than a
motor ear a minute, by actual day-
light count, during the early months
of northern winter,
Vast Throngs at Play.
A graphic picture this, a giant movie-
(one of upward of ten hundred thou-
sand Americans marching to play and
work. Big league ball teams at prac-
tice in the sun; tired and retired cap-
italists on private yachts and patent
medicine barkers in flivvers; horse-
shoe pitchers, and croquet players from
small towns of the Middle West ; erack
swimmers and divers, golf profes-
sionals, brown sun-bathers, school
children of all ages, hues, and creeds
studying in the open air at desks set
on the sand. Stunt flyers, prima
donnas, and parachute Jumpers; street
fakers, and “the world's smallest
horse”; wax-figure shows of Grant
and Custer, Buffalo Bill, and Jesse
James working the county fairs; dane-
ing teachers and cruising taxi-men
with “For hire” cars brought all the
way from Detroit and Cleveland; edu-
eators and evangelists, palmists and
pugilists; puritans and impuritans; a
great circus in winter quarters, its
tapirs and giraffes capering in warm
sunshine; barbers in green smoeks and
390 beauty specialists in the eity of
Miami alone; taxidermists to mount
one's prize tarpon or sailfish ; market
snakehunters, with 12-foot tongs wad-
ing the Everglades,
Then, as suddenly as it n, the
/isitors’ tumult and shouting die. The
army departs. It goes pell-mell, swift-
ly, as noncombatants evacuate a eity
before advancing enemy troops. Sump-
tuous, high-priced hotels close and
hordes of “snow-bird” waiters, bell
hops, maids, and cooks backtrack to
prepare the northern resort hotels for
another season.
The tourist wave takes months to
reach the high-water stage, yet all
want to go North in a week, thus
straining even the great facilities of
the railways tapping the Far South.
Divorced from the tension of win-
.er racket, the real Florida relaxes
and breathes easier. She counts the
profits earned from winter paying
guests In return for bed; board, and
otherwise; then turns to her big job—

When the Tourists Are Gone.
Some towns and industries are long
established and now stabilized. They
would live well without tourists. Yet,
to a singular degree, the huge sea-
sonal income from tourists has upset
the economic balance of the state,
Tourist trade grew suddenly, and much
faster than the state could Increase
its own halanced food production;
thus Florida presents an odd picture |
At times she throws away surplus
fruit and vegetables, Later in the
same year she may have to live out of
tin cans. She has not yet learned to
feed herself, but she is educating her-
self along these lines rapidly.
Excellent dairy herds are hers, yc,
she imports about two-thirds of all
her butter and milk. Here virgin
America heard the evening low of
wandering kine brought by Spanish
explorers; here are vast grasslands,
potentinl feed for infinite eattle; yet
the state imports seven-eighths of all
its meat,
Poultry farms grow flocks of 5,00,
and 10,000 chickens, yet a large share
of fowls and eggs consumed is brought
from other states. Despite the eco-
nomic commotion of the past decade,
Florida is still in sense a pioneer
state, Her growth has been spotty,
haphazard, marked by local spurts
and lapses, seemingly a precocious
child trying to run before she walks,
Riding south to Florida in the win-!
ter months along the Atlantic coast,’
you meet long trains of yellow-hued
refrigerator cars rolling north, laden
with fish, fruits, and vegetables. One
single train hauled 104 cars of toma-
toes. Neventy-five million hungry cus-
tomers live within 36 to 48 hours of |
her gates, by express and fast freight,
Two hundred kinds of crops, fruits, |
and nuts grow here, and shipments
out of the state average one carload |
every five minutes, the year around!’
She digs new potatoes and picks beans, |
peas, tomatoes, celery, pears, papayas,
grape fruit, and oranges when New
York and Chicago are snowbound. |
Though she ships nearly 100,000 cars |
of orchard and garden crops a year,
or more than 10 per cent of all that is |
sold In America, only a small part of
her available land is tilled. You can
ride for miles and miles, over superb-
ly surfaced highways, through grass |
and pine lands as empty yet of human
life as in the dawn of creation.
What North Florida Is Like.

for generations, which the rest of
America was in the making. The rea-
son, of course, was the trend of mi-
gration to the great West!
Till recent years, when better con
munications came and America’s food
habits began to change through inten-
sive distribution methods, refrigerator
cars and high-power advertising, there
was no great consumer market for the
golden winter fruits and green vege-
tables which the state today grows. |

Take, for example, the humble

back when that garment was an in-

brightening touches, no other object
than to keep us warm and miserable-

combined to put the sweater on the
