North has become bankrupt and the Gulf
Stream is turned in its course," then will
the boom fall out of the Flower Land.
Tampa is situated at the head of the bay,
which is the largest and most inviting har
fcor on the Gulf coast of the peninsula.
"With such natural advantages it is fast be
coming the key to the commerce of the
islands and South America. Steamers ply
regularly between Tampa, Key West, Ha

steam vessels dot the harbor, and within 48
hours ride of Xew York the tide of travel
is growing year by year.
A COSMOPOLITAN rorTTLATION.
All Florida is cosmopolitan, but Tampa,
as the "Gate to the Gulf," particularly so.
Almost every State and Territory is repre
sented, while the German, Swede and
Frenchman find those of his native tongue.
Many Cubans have found here a pleasant
change from the tyranny of the "old coun

this new South, and may well be, for they
ore surrounded by numerous natural con
ditions. Immense quantities of fish? and
such fish, too, makes fishing a paying indus
try, while oysters, clams and green turtle
are found in abundance. Wild ducks are
innumerable and sea birds are plentiful
along the coast. In this connection we may
refer to the largest shell mound of the State,
which is found on the military reservation
adjoining Tampa. These mounds every
where bedot the coast of Florida and are
supposed to have been the spots where the
Indians gathered in tribes each year to have
a picnic on shell fish, and dropping the
shells the mounds grew to the proportions
we now find. The size of the mounds con
vinces that the tastes of the Indian savage
and the nineteenth century epicure are very
In these are found human skeletons, stone
implements and bits of pottery. Hundreds
of years must have elapsed since the Indian
lad his wigwam here, for upon the summits
of the mounds fnll-grown oaks and cedars
sow stand as sentinels over the sleeping In
dian. Sponge fishing is another important
industry and is found very remunerative
along the shoals and reefs, and, to the
Northern tourist, has all the interesting
leatures of tne industry of the JVLediterran
STBAWBEUKIES IN JANTJAET.
The climate is eminently semi-tropical,
the soil fertile and well drained, and a peep
into the garden shows strawberries ripening
in profusion, bananas, pineapples and oth r
tropical plants luxuriant, while the more
walter-of-fact vegetables are growing in
abundance and prove that "coming events
cast their shadows before," for
soon Northern markets will be revel
ing in the luxuries of "spring
vegetables." Thousands of cattle, too,
range on the plains surrounding Tampa,
and one sees that fin, feather, scale and hoof
contribute to the prosperity of this part of
Florida, while man's inventions in the way
of gas, electric light, street cars and water
works, handsome business blocks and
epacious hotels add much to the comforts to
be found in this little city by the Gulf.

charm of letters from a winter resort, es
pecially if it be dull and uninviting, but
with the business, social and health-giving
Advantages of Tampa no exaggeration is
needed, and life itself in this Southern city
is a fairy-like poem. All around Tampa
are charming points for excursionists, and
the tourist may find a flavor of Bohemianism
jiad rustic simplicity, which contrasts de
lightfully with the ostentation and extrava
gance of our Northern resorts.
Everything in this bright Florida town
puts on a gala appearance. The season is
like one long tournament day. The city is
gay-with music add bright with flowers and
flags. Japanese lanterns hang here and
there among the orange and banana groves
surrounding the hotels, fantastic arrange
ments of Spanish moss festoon the stores,
while pretty homes are fairly hidden behind
climbing roses and' sweet-scented honey
suckle. On fete days crowds innumerable
are in attendance from the surrounding
country and towns.
A SOUTHERN BAEBECCE.
Then the old Southern custom of barbecue
is in vogue and from the clump of old live'
oaks, the wind every now and then brings a
whiff of the savory barbecue, being prepared
unoer the direction of the old negro and to
eee the good-natured crowd revel in this de-
licions banquet, would tnrn Delmomco's
head cook green with envy.
So the Northern tourist may well ex
chanee his gold for the pleasures to be
found here, and while he reads with a
shudder of the chilling blasts that surround
his native home, sits comfortably on the
broad piazzas of the hotels drinking in the
genial sunshine and bracing sea breezes.
The festive picnicker is found almost every
day beneath the swinging boughs of the
beautiful groves in the parks; lovers stroll
beneath the moonlight or starlight on the
beach, unmindful that it is January.
The sportsman, too, revels in successful
deer, bear and squirrel hunting, and no
modern Ananias should ever be forgiven
for tampering with a fish story, for fish
of all sizes, 'varieties and quantities are
p.isv nrev. It is here that the tarpon.
lord of all game fishes, abounds, and here
lovers of the royal sport find the acme of
angling. It is only a few years since it was
thought impossible to take one of these
"silver kings" with a rod and reel, but now
tarpon fishing is famous, and Congressmen
and swell do more to immortalize themselves
through the capture of this gamy fish than
in any other way.
Devotees to the shrine of nicotine would
find Tampa an interesting 'point. Hereare
1,000 operatives employed in the cigar
factories, at an average of $25 per week.
This amount put in circulation by the ex
travagant Cuban proves a bonanza to
A SPANISH SETTLEMENT.
Connected with Tampa by a dummy car
line is Ybor City a picturesque Spanish
settlement, for of the 2,000 inhabitants all
are Cubans and Spaniards. This town is
owned exclusively by a Spanish grandee,
who rents the cottages to his employes.
This would be called monopoly in the
North, and "strikes" would be the result,
but no such trouble is expected here. The
tobacco is shipped from Cuba, goes through
the various processes, and comes out a real
Havana, ready for the wholesale markets,
certainly equal to the "Havana," made
from Ohio tobacco, in tne great city of Chi
cago. In each of the large manufacturing
rooms, where 200 men are at work rolling
tobacco, what attracts the attention first is
a gentleman seated upon an elevated plat
form in the center of the room reading
newspapers in a very loud voice. This, to
an American, is a very novel idea, but it is
the custom in all Cuban factories. The
reading is done regularly every day, from 9
A. M to 1 P. ai., and the reader is paid by
the operatives. What a blessine to our
Northern capitalist if he could have such
influence thrown around his workmen, in
stead of the loud, defaming socialistic cries
that are becoming ruinous to our country
and our capital.
So this city, caressed by the Southern sea,
with its climate, oranges, boating, fishing,
and its chivalrous social spirit, offers suffi
cient inducements to draw people together,
making it quite the Paradise of the Gulf.
AET MATTERS IN GENERAL.
Mr. Geoboe Hetzel is to the front again
with another cold morning picture. Those who
look for this work at Boyd's will find It a very
clever little landscape, pleasing and effective
in composition and thoroughly expressive of the

The eleventh exhibition of the Society of

If 3Ir. Bryan "Wall may be held to have es

That largo numers of, etchings, engravings,

shown by the care with which publishers time
their issues so that they will appear before the
public just previous to Christmas. In Novem

new etchings appeared in this city at the rate
of three or four per week. Since that time not
one of any consequence bas been seen, and, in
all probability, they will only appear at rare

The! National Academy of Design will open

be received from the 11th to the 13th of March.
At the exhibition there is a prize offered for
the best picture painted by a woman, and also
a prize or S300 for the best American figure

Not long since a poorly executed water-color
drawing of three small cats was placed in the
window of a Wood street art store. At the
same time were shown a fine landscape by one
of our best known artists and more than one
etching bearing names of national reputation.
But for the eyes of two young ladies who
stopped to admire the artistic display, the win
dow contained only the little water-color, ana
as tbeir glances rested upon it one of them ex
claimed: "'Oil, just look at those cunning cats;
how I would like to have them." Here was an
instance showing how and why art is not ap
preciated. The picture of the three little
Kittens appealed to the voung ladies be
cause it contained nothing which they could
not understand; no matter bow fine the art in
what wa$ above their comprehension they did
not value'it. They knew a cat when they saw
one, and they knew that the drawing in ques
tion represented three kittens; bnt the force,
the power and the knowledge which are em
bodied in tho serious works of great artists was
still a mystery to them, and art a language of
which they had not yet learned the alphabet
The success of the exhibition of paintings at
Gillespie's art rooms during the past week will
go a great way toward deciding the question as
to whether or no the people of this city ap
preciate good things in art Mr. Arthur A
Sanches, who is here in charge of the coileo
tlon, is likely to carry away with him a very
favorable impression of the good taste and
liberality of our buyers. Many of the pictures
have been sold and the purchasers have shown
particularly good judgement in tbeir selection.
It is very evident the works have aU sold
on tbeir own merits and not solely on the name
and fame of the artist Names which staod
high in the art world are affixed to some of the
pictures that are still on hand, but they are
perhaps not such characteristic specimens of
the artists' works as some ot those which have
sold more readily. It was the original intention
to keep this collection here only until Thurs
day last but it is now proposed to make some
valuable additions to its numbers, and they
will probably remain during the whole of the
Considering the increasing prevalence of
the practice of placing oil paintings behind
glass, the rule of the National Academy of De
sign forbidding its use at its exhibitions may
arouse a fair share of discussion. Formerly
the practice was frowned down upon by artists
and connoisseurs,and those who were guilty of
it guilty is the proper word for it, was thought
to be little less than a crime were regarded as
possessing little judgment and very bad taste.
Now, however, all this is changed and some of
our best artistsand leading collectors are found
following and defending the practice. Like
most other customs something mav be said
both for and against it and It is just as well not
to take up a position too positively on either
side. One may please himself so far as he
alone is concerned, but it Is unnecessary to for
mulate a law for the guidance of others, still
less to insist that they should follow it On the
score of protection to paintings the placing of
glass before them may very easily he defended.
Some works of a delicate nature, whose chief
Deauty depends on-flnenesa of tone, are quickly
and unfavorably affected by the atmosphere of
cities and towns, and it will scarcely be con
tended that the first charm of a pict
ure should be destroyed for tbe sake
of a little present gratification. On the other
band, glass is an abominable nuisance in many
cases and had better be dispensed with, and no
picture which does not require Its protection
ought ever be looked at through it True
enough it is often claimed that it softens a
picture and improves it Perhaps it does, but
it would often greatly improve certain classes
of pictures to look at them through tbe wrong
end of an opera glass, and yet we very seldom
regard them that way. If a picture cannot
stand on Its own merits It does not possess art;
It deserves to be viewed in the licht
for which it was painted and at the
proper range as regards distance, but beyond
this all adventitious aids to effect are ob
jectional and unnecessary. But besides this
the presence of a sheet of glass between tbe ob
server and a picture Is disagreeable in itself.
It is difficult to place a picture so covered in a
position where we will not be annoyed by tbe
light reflected from the glass and where we
will be free from tbe irritation ot feeling that
something Intervenes between us and the ob
ject at which we desire to look.

FOUNDATION OP THE EAETH'S -CRUST
Lwxrri'xxr ron tub dispatch, l
N the contributions to Amer
ican educational history just
issued by the United States
Bureau of Education, we
find a, volnme of 308 pages
devoted mainly to a discus
sion of the foundation and
history of the University of
Virginia. It is a singular
and most interesting story, in good part be
cause the University of Virginia is one of
the most original and happy'influences in
our American system of instruction. The
University of Virginia is the child of
Thomas Jefferson, and is even more his own
than is the Declaration of Independence.
When this statesman came to die he di
rected that there should be placed on his
tombstone the statement that he was the au
thor of the Declaration of American Inde
pendence, of the statute which gave to Vir
ginia religious freedom, and father of the
University of Virginia. He was one of the
few men who could afford to neglect the fact
that he was the second President of the
United States for eight years. The plan of
this remarkable school, not only as regards
every part of its educational scheme, but as
to every detail of its singular and interest
ing architecture, was Jefferson's own.
Jefferson's place as a man of thought and
action has been obscured by his political
prominence and the decided partisanship
which guided him in his public acts. It is
hardly too much to say that his reputation
among the American people would proba
bly have been much greater than it is but
for his career as a national statesman. The
Bureau of Education has undertaken a good
worktif bringing together the facts which
enable us to measure Jefferson's position as
an educator. The energy, devotion and
acumen which he gave to this great task en
title him to the very first place among
American educators. The way in which he
contended against local prejudices which
beset the foundation of his university, the
sagacity with which he took advice, and his
skill in making it serve or in putting it
aside, the continued personal devotion of
his agedyears as well as of his own fortune,
make this story singularly attractive to us.
INFLTrENCE OF JEFFERSON'S IDEA.
i Jefferson's school has done much to shape
the Southern ideal of education, and it has
not been without influence on the schools of
the North. Dr. Adams shows clearly that
Mr George Ticknor was doubtless much in
debted to Jefierson s plans for the trood
work which he did in the reform which took
place in Harvard College in the years be
tween ltKU and liiio. wnen a keen discern
ment as to the quality of 'men, which char
actized Jefferson as it must mark all suc
cessful statesmen, he endeavoied in the or
ganization of his university to secure as
professors Mr. George Ticknor. of Boston,
and Mr. Nathaniel Bowditch, of Salem, the
one the most foremost literary man of the
country, aud the other the ablest mathema
tician. He offered them what was for the
time the remarkably liberal salary of 52,500
a year and dwelling place, and although
Ticknor had but a thousand dollars in
Harvard College, he declined the ofier, but
he made a visit to Jefferson and maintained
his intercourse with him for some year.s
It may be'fairly said of Jefferson that he
is the only man who has ever established a
university in every sense of the word. De
vising the plan, compassing the control of
the money, he saw to every bit of brick and
mortar, selected the teachers, and thus gave
the admirable stamp to the system of educa
tion in that institution which has ever after
ward been followed. The latter part of this
volume is taken up with an interesting
series of accounts of the other colleges in
Virginia. Although all these are interest
ing, the main attraction of the story is that
which concerns the "Washington and Lee
University, originally tbe college of George
Washington. In 1784 the Virginia Legis
lature subscribed 100 shares to a com
pany for the improvement of the James
rivert directing that such shares should
be invested in George Washington,
his heirs and assigns forever. The state
ment of the Legislature was that this gift
grew out of the desire of the Eepresenta
tives of this Commonwealth to embrace
every suitable action for testifying to their
sense of the merits of George Washington.
Washington in very noble language, too"
long to give here, declined to receive this
gift for his private emolument, arid asked
permission to turn it to some public good.
He wisely chose to give it to a school pre
viously known as Angusta Academy, which
thereafter became the Washington College.
To this day Washington College receives
the interest on this fund, and it is an inter
esting fact that the two first Presidents of
the United States should have founded en
during institutions of learning at a great
sacrifice of their personal interests.
THE PASTEUB INSTITUTE.
A recent number of Nature gives an in
teresting account of the Pasteur Institute in
Paris. This admirable foundation is in
tended to serve as an architectural monu
ment to the noble work done by M. Pastenr
with reference to a great variety of human
and scientific interests, especially to matters
which have concerned the health and life of
man and his domesticated animals. There
can be no question that Pasteur's work, if
we consider only its beneficent effects on
human and lower life, is the greatest which
has ever been accomplished by any one man,
save, perhaps, the illustrious Jenner, the
discoverer of vaccination. To consider only
his last and, perhaps, greatest discovery, that
which may lead to the prevention of rabies
in dogs and to consequent hydrophobia in
man, it now appears clear, despite the some
what captious objections of those who con
tend against him, that he has proven his
propositions. Carefully gathered statistics
which were presented at the opening of the
institute indicate that of 100 persons bitten
by rabid animals 15 tr 16 persons must peri
ish by a most horrible death. Similarta
tistics show that, with the effective treat
ment which Pasteur has learned to apply,
less than 1 per cent are attacked by the dis
order. It appears, indeed, possible that the
success attained by this treatment may in
time be much more complete than it now is.
"We may not only succeed in curing all
those who are rendered liable to the malady
by contact with the poison, but, through
Pasteur's work, we have learned a method
by which it is conveyed from animals to
man, and it seems likely that, by a proper
treatment of our dogs, we may succeed in
extirpating the disease not, as has been
suggested, by killing all the dogs, but by
crushing the disease in its breeding place.
In Russia, where the disease is most fre
quent, it seems possible that it has its nest
among the wild animals, particularly the
wolves. If Pasteur be rights and there is
every reason to believe he is in the suppo
sition that this is a germ disease, and not
a malady which may spontaneously orig
inate, it ought to be extirpated.
Statistics appear to show that hydropho
bia is less common in America than on the
continent of Europe. It may be that the
difference is due to the less crowded state of
population, and therefore to the diminished
chances of transmission by dogs and cats
from one place to another. In this connec
tion we may note the interesting question,
viz.: It is supposed in many parts of this
country that the common skunk, though
undiseased, may communicate hydrophobia
by its bite. The present writer has one ap
parently well attested case of hydrophobia
occurring in a child in Texas who had been
so bitten. Any observations on this point
would be important contributions to the his
tory of the disease.
CURIOUS PEOPEETIES OF ALLOTS.
In a recent number of Nature a lectureby
Prof. Robert Austen gives an interesting
synoptic account of some curious properties
of alloys. It appears from this account
that the metallurgists of centuries ago gave
much attention to the singular effects pro
duced by very small quantities ot foreign
matter contained in metals. In modern
days such is the close adjustment of man's
demands to peculiarities of nature that
these effects of alloys in metals have come
to have great importance. The ancients,
perceiving the peculiar influence of a va
riety of mixtures with metals, drew from it
the theory that by extending such changes
they might in the end win their way
to the transmutation of the base met
als into gold and silver. "We thus see
that the quest of the alchemists, their no
tion that they might convert copper or lead,
into precious metals, was not a pure figment
of the imagination, but rested on a certain
measure of practical experience. Our bet
ter knowledge of the metals has caused is
to abandon the notion of transmutation, but
there can be no question but we are just en
tering upon a field of vast enlargement in
our economical amplications of the metals
by the use of such admixtures. Thus of
late years we have come greatly to vary the
qualities of iron and almost all the other
metals by melting them with definite pro
portions of other substances. The iron of a
century ago had but three qualities to offer
to the economist. The iron of to-day, by
the use of a number of alloys, is made to
vary its character in a really wonderful
manner. Under the system of alloying, it
has become manifold as varied as it was of
The difference between the ancient and
the modern methods of scientific experiment
are well shown in the contrast of the method
followed by the alchemist and the modern
chemist. The precious indications of trans
mutability in metals which the alchemist
observed served only to lead him upon a fa
tuous search. The modern scientific man
pays heed to each result attained by his ex
periments, and gives it its due place in the
realm of discovery. He has no ultimate ob
ject of search, but is content to win what he
can by the way in his study ot nature.
A GEOLOGICAL STUDY.
In his recently published discourse before
the British Association, Prof. T. C. Bonney
makes an effort to ascertain whether it is
possible to trace the foundation stones of tbe
earth's crust, those materials which were
laid down in the times before the waters had
rested upon its surface and which were
therefore deposited from the primitive molt
Most geologists are now of the opinion
that all tht crystalline rocks of the earth's
surface, such as the granites and syenites,
were originally deposited from water, and
owe their peculiar present condition to
changes which have led to the crystalliza
tion of their materials and tp the consequent
efiacementof their original indications of
water action. Prof. Bonney endeavors to es
tablish the fact that the older crystalline
rocks indicate a time when the rocks were
formed without the action of water, when
they were deposited by cooling from the
fiery mass of the planet. Among the many
interesting points of a purely technical na
ture he makes one suggestion which is of
general interest He suggests that such
rocks would have been formed under very
great pressure, for the reason that at that
time, the waters being in the state of vapor,
the pressure upon the surface of the earth
would have amounted to 310 ntmosphercs,
or a weight equal to that of 4,000 feet of av
In a recent paper from Mr. B. E.Fernow,
of the forestry division of the Federal De
partment of Agriculture, the author gives
some suggestions concerning the causes
which determine the configuration of trees.
We are all aware how varied are the forms
of different species of plants which attain
the dignity of trees, and how well adjusted
they are to their surrounding conditions.
Mr. Fernow notices the curious combina
tion of influences arising from the effects of
gravity and of sunlight on trees. Gravity
is a universal influence directly affecting
all parts of the tree in the measure of their
weights. Sunshine has, however, a con
trasted influence; the roots tend to turn
away from the light, and the branches to
bend toward it. He notes that the direc
tion in which a branch turns is, in a meas
ure, proportionate to the difference of illu
mination of its parts. The sides of the
branch which receive the least illumination
grow most rapidly, and by its lengthening
produce a curvature which turns the tips
toward the light, while directly the reverse
effect occurs in the roots. The author sug
gests that the varied branch systems of
trees may be in a measure determined, by
the variations in the distribntion and den
sity of the foliage. He concludes that the
tre'es of least dense foliage should, in gen
eral, have their branches in a more erect
attitude. On the other hand, where the
leaves afford most shade, the branches should
extend more horizontally in a spreading

how far the form of a tree isdependent upon
its environment The question as to the
surrounding influences, the group of effects
to which naturalists give the name of en
vironment, can be better studied in the
form of trees than in any other familiar
field. The simplest instance of this action
is found where trees of the same species de
velop in an open field or in a contending
growth of the closer set wood. The varia
tion in configuration in these two condi
tions is often very marked. If the observer
becomes interested in the matter, he may
trace equally interesting effects arising from
the variety in the position within a forest
occupied by given species. On different
sides of a lofty hill, in moist valleys and
more arid slopes, we may readily trace the
