IGDLTIYATION OP PICNIC PfiUIT,
And How Florida Imagines She'll bs Full of Mil.
A correspondent tells some stories about
lemon culture in that State where De Leon
vainly thought he'd fonnd the fountain of
perpe'tual youth. Five thousand lemons to
a tree, and manr of them weighing a pound
each, would aggregate about two tons, to say
the least But the story is written, and it
may as well "go."
ICOEBTSPONDENCI OF THE BISrATCH.l
- Tampa, Fla., November 23. American
oranges have revolutionized the orange
business in America. The Florida lemon
bids fair to follow its sister an4 gain a
supremacy over the old-time, far-famed
Sicily fruit. The cultivation of Florida,
California and Louisiana oranges has at
tained such dimensions in our country that
it is becoming a matter of certainty that
Mediterranean fruit will altogether cease
to be imported to the United States. The
culture of the lemon is yet in its infancy in
Plorida; but "it is Florida that threatens to
oust the Mediterranean islands from their
position as a lemon growing country."
The lemon seems to positively luxuriate
in the balmy, moisture-laden atmosphere of
Southern Florida, and the fruit attains a
sire unprecedented in other parts of the
world where climatic conditions are less fa
Torable. Lemons weighing a pound each are com
mon, and along the banks of the Caloosa
hatchie, in the lertile district of the "re
claimed lands," a single tree bears 5,000
lemons, many ot which weigh a. pound each.
JJut, like the "big trees" ot California, the
story calls for a challenge often, and the in
credulous tourist, who suspects a Florida
yarn, must come, tape measure and scales in
hand, see, measure and weigh for himself.
THEY TVA2JT POOB SOIL.
But further, while the trees in this region
are magnificent, the fruit is not marketable,
being coarse-grained and thin-skinned the
result of its exuberant growth in a too fer
tile soil and lemon culture, therefore, is
best adapted to poorer soil; buuastbin soil is
always found cheaper, it will be seen that
the cost of laying out a grove of lemons is
slight, and as lemons come into bearing in
half the time of the orange, and are fully as
prolific, the man who prospects in lemon
culture has everv assurance of success.
One cannot but feel for the Sicilian
crowers, who have enjoyed a monopoly of
this Mediterranean industry, which is as old
as civilization itself. Lemon groves in a
highly-developed state are worth $1,000 per
ncre, and, as the vlne of a grove increases
with age, so the man who will train up a
tree in th way it should crow, may feel
that in alter years he may sit under the
shade of it and talk of "corners" in Florida
Each year tropical fruit crowing as a
business is getting on a firmer basis. It is
said that the United States consume more
lemons in a year than all the other countries
' combined, and the consumption is increas
ing greatly every year. As shown from
statistics, tbe number of boxes imported in
1850 amounted to 119,000, while last year
the number bad increased to more than
S',000.000. When there is such a demand
for the fruit, its production on a larger
scale must ultimately follow.
1ESS AIO LESS A EABETX.
To many the possession of a grove in
Florida has been a matter of Iuxurr, like
the ownership of a painting or celebrated
racer; but materialistic, money-making
Americans are beginning to see that the
growing of citrus fruits must be treated as
a business and less as a matter of sentiment,
and the progressive Tankee who has busi
ness tact enough to watch his grove in every
state, from the bud in its infancy to tbe sale
of the fruit, has secured a business that
possesses a fascination in itself as well as
profits that rest well on his materialistic
The cultivation of the lemon, as an indus
try, is now a feature in Florida, although it
la been cultivated to some extent since the
early history of the State. All through
Florida the wiid groves of citrus fruits are
found amid dense forests. How they came
there, no one knows, although many theories
are advanced. They may have been propa
gated by seeds dropped by the Spaniards.
The missionaries of the cross, who accom
panied all the early Spanish expeditions to
America, were accustomed to bring with
them and plant whatever would be useful
in a new country where they established
their "missions. Doubtless to these worthy
fathers we owe the first cultivation of the
lemon and orange.
The wild nativ lemon has a brilliant
orange-colored iruit, very Isrce and rough
skinned, and with a rind nearly a quarter
of an inch thick. Its juice is rather sweet
ish in taste, but it has no value, except as a
stock for other varieties. Tbe lemon, like
the orange, lives to be a centenarian. Speci
mens certainly SO years old exist in the
State, and show no signs of dying yet.
Seeing is believing, and the doubter mnst
satisfy himself, by trial, like the man of
Hierocles' day. who, on hearing that ravens
lived to be 200 years old, immediately
bought himself oneto prove it.
A rEOLTFIC BEAliEE.
The lemon usually produces two crops of
fruit annually the first ripening during
the summer, and the second in November
and December. There are scattering lemons
during the entire year, but not enongh to
be of any great shipping value. There is
much to learn in all that pertains to -the
culture of the lemon in Florida; bnt that it
will prove more profitable than the orange
is not donbted by the horticultural and
pomological societies of the State.
One ot the largest fruit dealers in New
Tork says: "The best lemons we get are
those from Florida, because they are natur
ally splendid lemons, because they are al
lowed to ripen on tbe trees, and the distance
is so short, they arrive in splendid condi
tion." Florida can out run Italy if she
takes care in crowing, sorting and packing,
and sends to New York the best lemons. A
prominent trait-grower of Orange county, a
lew years ago, budded from a variety of
Sicily lemon. Last winter he shipped 3,
000,000 lemons. The fruit picked, after it
matured, commanded a dollar a box in ad
vance of the finest imported lemons in the
The Orange Trust is the absorbmg'theme
in Florida this fall. Slow transportation,
high commission fees and rushing sour and
immature fruit into tha markets have had a
tendency to weaken the industry, especially
among small producers. The season natur
al' opens with a rush, which paralvzes
-ikets and demoralizes growers; but,
.nth Ihe trust completed, with an unprece
dented crop in prospect, the orange and
lemon business will this year be unpar
alleled. The North, too, will feel the bene
fit, for prices will not be so variable, and
fruit will arrive in better condition. The
development of tbe industry, and more
lemons for less money, will surely, too,
break the awful solitude of the lemon in the
picnic lemonade. IX. H.

A HANGMAN'S GALLOWS AT AUCTION.
Strange Scene In a Virginia Town Sold at
Last for S3 75.
Chestebfield Coukt House, Ta.,
November 28. The novel spectacle of sell
ing a gallows at auction was witnessed here.
The gallows was for the hanging of Simon
Walker, a colored youth, who had been
under sentence of death for some months
and who was about to be hung, when Gov
ernor Lee rode over and, after interviewing
the boy, decided to commute his sentence.
A large crowd cathered around the
gallows. Auctioneer Joe Brown stood at
the deadlv trap door and cried:
"What" am I offered, gentlemen, for this
gallows; bran new and never used?"
A long pause ensued.
"Start it at anything," said the auction
eer. An old countryman bid (1.
"Going at ?1, $1 bran new gallows, never
used, SI," cried the auctioneer.
"Gentlemen, this is a dead give away, a
bran new gallows tor ?1."
This caused a colored man to bid 1 SO,
but being told that whoever bandied a gal
lows would see the shadow of the gallows
over him whenever a rooster crowed at
night, he withdrew his bid.
Sheriff Gill bid 52. A blacksmith bid
52 50. From this figure it went 10 cents at
a time up to 53 75, and was bought at that
figure by Sheriff Gill. He bought it on
specnlation. It was considered the best
gallows in the State.
IT WAS EKTlBEIiI UNSEAWORTHT.
Not Much Wonder That the German Bark
Went to the Bottom.
Long Branch, N. J., November 28.
Several thousand persons to-day visited the
scene of the wreck of the German bark
Germania. The beach is strewn with frag
ments of the vessel from debris from West
End Hotel nearly two miles north to Sandy
Hook. None of the bodies of the ten sailors
drowned have yet come ashore. A close
watch for them is being kept on the beach.
The bark was not seaworthy. Many of her
timbers are rotten. They are merely soft
punk. The bodies of the sailors lost are
supposed to be entangled in the mass of sails
and cordage which marks the scene of the

A CKACKEE JIAS'S LUCK.
He Hat to Get n Dray to Carry Home His
Baltimore. November28. Seven men
were in Tommy O'Brien's large restaurant
Monday night throwing dice, and among
them was the proprietor. Another was
young Mason,, of the well-known cracker
firm, whose uninterrupted and remarkable
good luck gradually forced all out but
O'Brien. O'Brien finally ran out of ready
cash. and. beinc unwilling to stop loser.
began to put up his Thanksgiving supply of
turkeys, canes and umbrellas which he had
laid in for the holidays.
The cracker man's Inck showed no signs
of waning, and at last a beautiful music
box, worth $600, was thrown for and the
cracker man won. Then cases of champagne
were staked against 530 in cold cash, and
the liquor went to the cracker man's credit.
Finally the restaurateur gave up the fight
and closed the place. A dray was called
into requisition to haul to the cracker s
man's house the goods and chattels he had
A BENEFICENT SCHEME.
Gnsky'sGlrn COOiTurkcys to the Poor or
Practical benevolence is always more
commendable than theoretical benevolence,
and the plan ot Mrs. Gusky is far more
productive of good results than the moraliz
ing upon poverty and admissions that some
thing ought to lie done to alleviate distress.
Six hundred turkeys were given to the poor
of Pittsburg yesterday morning, and several
thousand hungry persons, large and small,
were thereby given a chance to feast.
The custom of Gusky's has been an an
nual observance, and its success has been so
marked that it was small wonder that the
vicinity of tbe store was thronged at an early
hoar by deserving poor anxious to avail
themselves of the generosity of the donor.
Before 8 a. m. the vestibules of the store
and the streets leading to it were crowded
with a throng of people all eager to get their
turkey in time for dinner. Six hundred tur
keys had been provided, averaging nine
pounds each. The smallest weighed six
pounds and the largest 28 pounds. About
the same number were distributed last year.
The work to-day was under the immediate
supervision of Messrs. K. Solomon, Levi De
Wolf and W. De Wolf, and at 8 o'clock the
doors 'were opened and the crowds flocked
in. All ages and conditions were repre
sented, from the 5-year-old little girl who
got the biggest turkey and had to be helped
to carry it to tbe poor lone woman of 85,
who had only herself to keep. There were
several families that numbered 16 persons,
half a dozen of 13, and a large number of 12,
11 and 10. In four families that applied to
day were 63 persons. The average number
in the family was six. The largest number
in any one family was 19, and the applicant
received the largest turkey.
Many amusing and touching incidents
occurred. Some of the applicants acted as
though they were half ashamed ot receiving
a turkey, and quickly covered it and got
away as soon as possible, while others
seemed especially proud of their birds and
carried them out with an air of triumph.
The good work went on till 11 o'clock,
and many a family was made happy in the
knowledge of a good dinner.

A BANK CONSPIRACY.
Tbe BIc Robbery at Hurley; Was the
Remit of n. Plot Startling; Dis
coveries "Blade by tha
Milwaukee, November 28. Dr. J. C
Reynolds, President of the bank at Hurley,
where the 540,000 robbery took place, says
that the most astonishing feature of the new
developments in the case is the claim made
by detectives that the robbery is- the result
of a conspiracy which was going on for at
least eight months.
"For two years," President Reynolds
says, "it has been a matter of common
knowledge on the range that a large amount
of money was sentns once a month to pay
off miners. The officers claim to have in
formation from one of the gang who came to
Hurley last March fully equipped to rob
the bank and knowing the combination of
the safe. This fellow claims to have hung
around several days, and to have seen tbe
money arrive and go to the bank. That
night he and his confederates were ready,
but the cashier did not go down town. They
watched him prepare for bed, and then de
cided to abandon an attempt at robbery.
The leader said that he knew that, with the
cashier in the bank, robbery would probably
include murder, and he drew the line at the
"The officers say that this gang did not
finally commit the robbery, and the leader
does not know who did, but he will tell who
furnished him with the combination or the
safe when he expected to track it The
officers have given me various other impor
tant pieces of information which show a
deep-laid plot, and I shudder when I think
of the danger that my brother, the cashier,
has been in for nearly a year. Under the
circumstances, the robbery might have
meant ruin to the bank."
No single disease has entailed more suffering
or hastened tho breaking up of the constitution
than Catarrh. The sense of smell, ot taste, of
sight, of bearing, the human voice, the mind
one or more, and sometimes all, yield to Its de
structive influence. The poison It distributes
throughout the system attacks every vital force
and breaks up the most robust of constitutions.
Ignored, because but little understood, br most
physicians, lmpotently assailed by quacks and
charlatans, those suffering from it have little
hope to be relieved of it this side of tho grave.
It is time, then, that the popular treatment of
this terrible disease by remedies within the
reach of all passed into hands at once compe
tent and trustworthy. The new and hitherto
untried method adopted by Dr. Sanford in tbe
E reparation of his UADICAI, cube bas won the
earty approval of thousands. It is instanta
neous in affording relief In all head colds,

MISS L MILLER,
A lady well known in Pittsburg and Alle

titude of troubles. The catarrhal poison in
her blood ailected her whole system. She
had a dropping of mucus from her head into
her throat, which was very tenacious and
hard to raise. She had no appetite, felt
bloated and distressed after eating, and she
would often vomit up her food. She had
much pain on the top of her head, was dizzy
and very nervous. She could get but little
sleep, and got up in the morning more tired
than when she went to bed. Thedisease
also extended to her kidneys, giving her
much pain across the small of her back. She
also suffered from diseases peculiar to women,
and had many other aches and pains too
numerous to mention. After becoming cured
by tbe physicians of the Catarrh and Dyspep
sia Institute, she says:
I am clad to state that I have been entirely
cured, as stated, of diseases from which I have
