TAE CITY OF MOBILE.
Some Facts About the P1ace which
Now York' Tibune.
Mobile lies on the right bank of the
Mobile River, which half a mile be
low the city enters Mobile Bay. The
city is about 20 miles from the Gulf
Stretched along the river front for
a mile or more is the wohlesalo busi
ness district. This is only about. 10
eet above the river, and in time of
storin, when the waters back up, it
is invariably flooded.
Sloping back from the river front
is the retail business and hotel dis
trict, and back of this, on slight hills,
the residence district. Every few
. .,years. the river front is inundated.
T"Storms in the Gulf pile up the waters
Nof the bay, which, 20 miles long by
15 wide, is only .15 feet deep, and this
in turn backs into the river. Never
before, however, has there been n
storm that destroyed the buildings
along the river. In the business dis
trict the buildings are substantially
built of brick and stone, and in, the
last ten years, the period of Mobile's
greatest development, six and eight
story structures have been built.
The town is picturseque, with its
manw huge oaks and magnolias, and
the residence district on the hills is
beautiful. A trolley system has aided
in the development of outlying )arts.
The population is 30,00, with 20,000
more inl the eivironls.
Mobile was originally an11 old Span
ish settlement, as New Orleans was
French. It is one o[ four principal
export ports for cotton. Minerals and
Jumber are largely exported. I is
the chief port, of entry for the t ropi
cal fruit trade of the Middle South.
Fruit. vessels reach there in a day
less than is necessary to go to New
Orleans. The Government in recent
years has provided a 25-foot clanel
into Mobile, which has vastly increas
ed commerce. Values in the city
have tr-ehled, it is siid, in the last
ten years. Three iniportant railroads
-the Mobile and OHio, tle Southern
and the Louisville and Nashville
enter Mobile. There are several sinal
MAuch apprehension is felt for the
persons who have summer cottages
along both shores of the bay. The
season is jnst closing, and many are
still in these places, which were ex
posed to the full force of the gale.
Where the bay debouches into the
Gulf Fort Morgan, a- first-class fort,
stands. Near by along the low-lying
shores fisherfolk live and ply their
Things Has Come to be a Paying In
Dustry in Japan and England.
The p)lace occupied among gastro
nomical in America and by* -he green
.turtle in England is taken by the
suppon,'' or the snappinig turtle in
Japan. The three are equally esteem
edl and equally high p)rice(d, but the
* Japanese epicure has this advantage
over his brothers of other lands-he
has no longer any fear of hiaving the
supp)lly of the luseious reptile exha us
ted. This desirable condition is ow
ing to the successful efforts of a Mr.
Hlattori, who has spafredl no pains5 to
bring his turtle farm to a high pitch
oft perfection, and is able to turn out
tens of thousands of these reptiles
every year. His arc, so far as I am
aware, the only turtle farms in the
wvorld wvhich are highly successful.
In general appearance a turtle
farm is at first glance nothing but a
number of recangular ponds, large
aind .small, the large ones having a
size of 15,000 to 20,000 square feet.
One or more of the ponds is alwvays
reserved for large breeding indivI
duals or ''parents,'' as they are call
In Hattori 's farm a person goes
around the ''parents' pond'' once a
day or so and covers up with wire
baskets all the new deposits made
since the last visit. Each basket may
be0 marked with a date if necessary.
This covering serves a twofold pur
pose-the obvious one of marking tihe
place, and in addition that of keeping
other females from digging in the
same spot. When hundreds, or even
thousands, of these baskets are seen
along the bank of the ".parents'
pond,'' it is a Bight to gladden the
heart of an embryologist, to say noth
ing of that of the proprietor.
The hatching of the egg takes, on
an average, 60 days. The time may
be considerably shortened or length
enel, according to whether the sum
mer is.hot and the sun pours down its
strong rays day after day, or whether
there is much rain and the heat not
great. It may become less than 40
days or more than 80 days.
