ABOUT ORANGE AND LEMON CULT CUE.
Draining the Everglades and Overflowed
Enterprise, Flerida, Correspondence of the
The patch of territory in this state upon
which oranges can be grown js net a large
section of the state. There is mere worth
less swamp land in the south end of the
commonwealth than the whole of the
orange country and much of the cotton re
gion combined ; but the orange section is
large enough te amply supply the United
State and England with the delicious fruit.
There is scarcely any agricultural product
in the world se prelilic in yield as the
orange ; there is none that se handsomely
rewards the raiser. It is a grateful and a
graceful little fellow. Ne one need fear
from what has been said here of the nar
row limits of the orange country, that he
is likely te be shut out, if he contemplates
going into the business from an opportun
ity or securing land. Just new there are
many thousand acics of excellent orange
lauds in the market, and railroads and
canals ate opening up mere. Orange
county alone probably has the fewest run
nets and solicters. This is a charming
strip of land, located back of the' St.
Jehn's, marketing at S.mferd its yearly
yield of oranges. The future product from
this county, according te calculations based
en the number of young trees approaching
their bearing yeais, will equal the total
yield of Flerida a year or two age. It is
settled chiclly by northern people and the
county absolutely consists of orange
groves. Sauford is the depot of supplies,
and a railroad, under process of construc
tion, out of Northern capital, will, when
completed, ejxm up the whole region for 40
miles back of the river, and concentrate
the productions of the section upon the St.
Jehn's. Orange county and its
neighborhood, including part of Va-
lusia, have remarkable gifts. They
are destined te be the great orange
counties of the future, as they arc already.
1 hey are located in a climate favorable te
the growth of every sort of tropical fruit.
I have seen bunches of bananas hanging
upon the tress at Enterprise as large and
plump as any raised in Nassau. I have
seen monstrous pineapple plants, and had
the assurance of a skillful and scientific
grower that they would bear. I have, en
New Year's day, plucked strawberries as
large as our "Wilsons from vines whei e
they were plenty and red ripe. Side by
side with them grew, with bursting pods,
sweet peas and string beans ; lettuce,
turnips and the like were also in a state et
maturity. In fact, the fanner in Orange
county can raise anything he cheeses. In
deed, one gentleman was expecting some
seeds or seedlings from China, acceiding te
the landlord of the Breck house. It was
some plant peculiar te China and Ceylon,
but whether it was tea I failed te asceitain.
The work of some of these gentlemen
farmers is intensely scicntilic. One
farmer, if such he could be called,
said that he had received pineapple
seeds from the "tropics" 4000 miles away
and that, if money, care and knowledge
of all the conditions surreuudins its
growth could de it, he was going te pro
duce in Flerida, where hitherto it has net
been supposed the pineapple could be rais
ed, the iinest fiuit in the world. "I hae
already," he said, "satisfied myself that
the pineapple will grew here, and I am
going te produce a perfect one." The same
gentleman is an agricultural "exquis
ite" in all ether directions. lie is im
proving his oranges, adding flavor te his
strawberries, strengthening and improving
his banana trees. It costs him a geed deal
of money, but he he prefers this hobby te
some ether man's. The Breck house at
Enterprise is a large, oblong, white hotel,
with verandas overlooking Lake Menree
a continuation of the St. Jehn's. The
house commands beautifnl tropical views
of large fcins, wild bananas, oaks with
that silvery, ancient-looking mess droop
ing from them, and tall palmettos baie
te the top, and ending in a freuzy bunch
of long green fern-like leaves. The hotel
is the principal part of the town, which is,
te all appearances, simply a steamboat
lauding. The house is part of a large farm
which reminds one of some place or scene
in the "ultra" tropics, since it produces
every thing I have named above, and ligs
and lemons, the citron and the guava in
addition. Everything consumed en the
tables is raised or manufactured en the
farm, and yet delicacies are daily presented
which would be inaccessible at any price te
the Fifth Avenue hotel. The farmer's wife
makes excellent guava jelly from the pro
duct of the garden, and several of the
guests, in my hearing, ordered large quan
tities of it te send home. The best if net
all the guava jelly used among us is sent
from Cuba ; but, if Flerida can, as I have
observed, make an article as geed, she has
certainly diverted te herself an important
branch of trade. Bananas have never
been grown for any practical purpose, and
these in the garden of the hotel, although
as plump, had net the flavor of the Nassau
banana. This, however, could be reached
by cultivation. All these things aic in
their infancy. Indeed, every semi-tropical
fruit in Flerida is ; the orange itself is
crude and undeveloped, compared te what
culture and time can make it. Strawbcr
tics are grown here plentifully, and doubt
less, may reach New Yerk in the winter
season, but they seem te lack the flavor of
our fine fruit. It is felly, however, te say
that cultivation cannot accomplish this re
sult. Flerida has really" only been " dis
covered " a few years. The winter immi
gration here new from the North is enor
mous ; the population is nearly doubled.
Flerida is a beautiful, smilingyeung thing
who has just "come out." Let us wait
five years before ranking Flerida ; it is a
state with a marvelous endowment of ag
ricultural genius. All the products enu
merated may be found growing in Orange
county. It is the true orange section of
the state. The climate is a material im
provement en Jacksonville. During sev
eral days spent at Entctprise, while I
had all the beautiful features of
the climate they love, I saw no
mosquites or sand-flics, and I was in
formed that they were scarcely trouble
some enough te be annoying iu any
weather. On this great farm some twenty
five springs have declared themselves
within a few years, some of considerable
size and force. Many arc mineral
sulphur, soda or iron ; ethers arc tasteless.
Occasionally, one disappears and reap
pears some distance away. The growth
of the lemon in Flerida seems net te have
been attended with the excitement of the
orange culture. . The truth is, the lemon
is net altogether a success. It can be
grown, nevertheless, as well as the orange,
in some parts of the orange section,
notably Orange county. In the economy
of life the orange is a luxury, the lemon
is a necessity ; the orange is a beauty and
wins admiration, the lemon is a plain
sister and exacts respect. In sickness,
wheu gloom lowers ever the bedside
together with an 31. D., and a Rev., the
orange is rammed out of sight, but the
lemon tucks up its sleeves and gees te
work, and it is no hospital nurse of the
Betsey Prig order cither. In sickness,
as 3Iark Taplcy had it, the lemon "comes
out strong." In geed health, the lemon
is a reue. It gets into disreputable com
pany, and loves te sit in bar rooms,
and get into punches and cocktails,
It calmly allows itself te come into the pre
sence of a wife and mother as part of agin
teddy, lending its whole existence te bear
out the husband's le-assurancc that it was
only a lemonade. I have no faith in the
private character of the lemon, hue com
mercially, it is net a potato. The lemon is
net te be sneezed at (except when it is be
ing softened). Its present intrinsic value
is greater than that of the orange, and
there is no question about its stavin Dual
ities. The rich juices of the Flerida orange
are its enemies in the matter of preserva
tion, but the lemon has none but the sour
est essences te contend with, and, under
these influences, it can be trusted te keep.
It is estimated that nearly 200,000,000 lem
ons come into New Yerk in a year. They
bring stiff prices, even at first hands. I de
net see why their culture in Flerida has
net assumed greater proportions. A lemon
is a necessity ; an orange is a luxury.
This is the situation. A necessity com
mands a place : a luxury simply occupies
it for the present. Several gentlemen
have assured me that lemons could be
grown iu Flerida as well as anywhere, but
I am afraid they prevaricated, for, if they
could, they doubtless would have been te
a greater extent than they have been. I
did see a large lemon tree at Enterprise in
bearing, and was shown a monstrous
lemon which had been picked from it.
The lemon leaf, crushed in your hand,
emits a line fragrance resembling that of a
verbena leaf. I de net knew if there arc
ether valuable tropical or foreign fruits
and productions that can be produced in
Flerida ; but wc certainly ought te bj
proud of a state that can de se much fjr
us. It is the queen state of the 8 in a
natural sense, because it will grew any
thing the ethers de, and compete with the
tropics besides. A lew weeks age I looked
upon the state as an alluvial and vegetable
deposit consisting of fog, malaria and alli alli
gateis. I find the nightlyj fog a beneficent
institution, and the malaria confined te
certain districts pronounced uninhabitable
and net in the market or offered for sale.
The semi-tropical growths need constant
and heavy visitations of dew and water in
some shape. Oranges must be well
watered iu a dry season or any period of
drought, and, the mere tropical the nature
of the fruit, the mere moisture it needs.
n.i a ,i ... .
j.uciu is use 10 which oranges win ne
put in the future, of which I have net
spoken yet. Already the bitter-sour
oranges are made into marmalade. Pee
pic in Flerida are practicing making wine
with them, and the results have exceeded
the expectations of the orange-raisers.
There is no question that a fine article of
wine can be made of these eramrcs.
I tasted some at this place, which
had a remarkable resemblance te the "old
Armadillo" sherry, sold in wholesale liquor
stores. If the insect with the unpro
nounceable name continues te devour the
French graics, as he is doing new, there
will certainly be a draft en oranges te take
their place. The sour orange, it seems te
me, would make as creditable wine as the
grape, basing my statement simply en the
wines I have seen produced from it in this
state. Formerly, these oranges were de
stroyed ; new, they arc discovered te be of
value. Every year adds materially te the
development of this wonderful state. The
authorities aie anxious te reclaim some of
the immense territory of the everglades,
which, though new a worthless swamp, is
declared te be capable of improvement.
This land is almost at the south end of the
Flowery Land. If reclaimed, it would be of
immense value te the state. It would even
he mere valuable for the purpose of raising
tropical fruits than the lands under culti
vatien farther north. This land is a sort of
basin comprising most of the everglades
and the swamps and savannahs en both
sides of the Kissince river and Lake Okee
chobee, embracing millions of acres of
overflowed lands. The draining of this
large tract would of course add immensely
te the value of the lands of the state and
greatly increase the area of land te be
work, however, and you will have te make
special arrangements. These are what will
cost. Lumber can be had for the freight ;
but the freight from the sawmills is a firm
figure. Whatever your building, set it
well up from the ground. Previsions are
about as cheap as in Bosten. Planting
can be kept up every month in the year.
Such were some facts I culled out of the
books of the bureau. In the west, toward
tne gun, a gentleman told me he raised
corn at the rate of 125 bushels te the
acre after cultivating his land only six
years. Sea Island or long cotton is raised
from the Suwanee river te the ocean. The
average product per acre is 150 te 2C0
pounds. This long cotton is only peculiar
te tne sea islands alentr south Carolina
and Georgia, and in West Flerida. The
price is 25 te 50 cents per pound. Short
cotton grows abundantly west of the
Suwanee and in the northern part of the
state. The yield is from 200 te 500 pounds
an acre. The cotton crop of Georgia is a
very large and generally a steady one.
Savannah's claim as the second cotton
pert of the United States is based en it. It is
from Flerida that she receives most of her
invoices. Sugar cane does well in Flerida.
It was one of the earliest products grown
en tins son; out it is net new extensively
cultivated, although Flerida sugar-cane is
Known in tne market. The yield of rice is
said te average from forty te sixty-five
bushels. Tobacco, it is claimed, has never
been fairly tried. It is grown here new te
some extent, but there are some who insist
that tobacco can be raised here equal te
the most fragrant leaf of Cuba. The fact
is, according te the pamphlets and the pee
pie, net only can everything be raised in
Flerida, but nothing can be raised se well
anywhere else. They de tell, however, of a
Cuban who, before the war, raised tobacco
in the south of Flerida equal te any in
Cuba. He was preparing te go into the
msiiiess extensively, when the war busted
him, and he dusted for the ever-faithful

is a thing which, since it has been declared
practicable, must and will be done. The
question is, When ? There would be no
doubt but sources for opening it up would
appear. I he Great Southern railroad,
running around the everglades en one side
te Key West, and the Charlette Harber
route en the ether, would be of great value
as direct trunk lines te the North. Indeed,
if either of these reads is built into that
dreary, desolate country of cypress
swamps and deadly mangrove marshes, the
land will be drained te a certainty, for
the reads will have no ether property te
offer te settlers. Imagine the Dismal
Swamp, a geed deal larger than it is, con
verted into a sunshiny cottenfield, and you
have these mangrove swamps, where death
stalks almost visible, brought back te
Ged's kingdom. The railroads arc prob
ably waiting te drain the swamps, but the
government is net even recommended by
its agent te begin the work, or te take the
contemplating of it in hand until her title
from the United States, from whence came
the grant of the lands, is perfected by
patent. The state owns a large amount of
land below the line of frost, which means
where the tropical fruits can be raised,
which have been given te her by
the United States, but for which no
patent of ownership has been received.
These lands cannot be sold te settlers
with a clear title, and without this
the settlers arc leth te buy. The lands
need improvement in the shape of drain
age, and arc what arc known as overflow
lands, The patents of ownership desired
by the state have net been obtained, it
seems, although they have been repeatedly
solicited, and se the matter stands. Ne
man can buy land in the tropical part of
Flerida and get a clear title with it. Of
lands already "approved " te the state of
Flerida by the United States, for which no
patent has been granted, there arc 3,392,
090.03 acres. Of "selected," but net
approved, lands, there are arelG,307,090.
17 acres. Selected lands are these offered
by the United States, and selected by an
agent of the state from the federal grant.
The approved lands arc selected
lands, which have been inspected
and their seizure approved, by an
agent of the United States govern
ment. The state lias in the past
taken some action te induce immigration
by the appointment of traveling solicitors
and a bureau of immigration. This bureau
has from time te time issued pamphlets en
Flerida and its resources. Frem a recent
publication I get the following informa inferma informa
teon: The average rainfall at Jacksen
villc for ten years has been 48 inches the
largest fall in August, and tha smallest in
November. The state lands comprise 15,
000,000 acres. Thp railroad lands for sale
arc as fellows : Atlanta, Gulf and West
India transit, with a branch building te
Tampa bay, owns C50.000 acres ; the Pen Pen
sacela and Georgia owns 200,000 acres ;
the Flerida Central, from Jacksonville te
Lake City, owns 180,000. These lands are
some of the best in the state, and, unim
proved, are offered, with the usual terms
of railroads, at 81.25 an acre. A leg
