THE OITY OF MOBILE.
Some Facts About the Place which
New York' Tribune.
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 Quit
Stretched along the river front for
a mile or- more is the wohilesale busi
ness district. This is only about. 10
feet above the river, and in time ot
storm, when the waters back ip, 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 listrict. Every few
years. the river front is inundated.
Storms in the Gulf pile uj) the waters
of 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 a
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 parts.
The population is 30,00, with 20,000
inore in the environs.
Mobile was originally ain old SIan
ish set tlement, as New Orleans was
French. It is one of flu principal
export, ports for cotton. Minerals and
lumber aire largely exported. 1t is
the chief port of entry for the (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 Govriiment in recent
years has provided a 25-foot channel
into Mobile, which has vastly inereas
ed commerce. V,alues in the city
have trebled, it is said, in the last
tenl years. Three important railroads
-the Mobile and Ohio, the Southern
and the Louisville and Nashville
enter M1ob'le. There are several snal
MAlich apprehension is felt for the
persons who have summer cottages
along both shores of the bay. The
season is just 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 Oome to be a Pa.ying In
Dustry in Japan and England.
The p)lace occupied among gastro
nomical in Ameriea and by the green
,turtle in England is taken by the
''suippon,' or the sinapping turtle in
Japan. The three are equally esteem
ed and equally high priced. but t he
Japanese ep)ieure has this advantage
over his brothers of other lands-he
has no longer any fear of hiaving the
supp)lly of the luscious rep)tile exhiaus
fed. This desirable condition is ow
ing to the successful efforts oif a Mr.
Hiattori, who has spared no pains to
bring his turtle farm to a high pitch
of perfection, and is able to turn out
tens of thousands of these reptiles
every year. His are, so far as I am
aware, the only turtle farms in the
wvorld which are highly successful.
In general appearance a turtle
farm is at first glance nothing but a
number1 of recanguhar ponds, large
an .mall, the large ones having a

duals or ''parents,'' as they are call
In Hattori 's farm a person goes
around the ''parents' pond'' once a
day or so md covers tip with wire
baskets all the new deposits made
since the last visit. Each basket may
b~e marked with a date if necessary.
This covering serves a twofold pur
pose-the obvious one of marking the
place, anid in addition that of keeping
other females from digging in the
same spot. When hundreds, or evenm
thousands, of these baskets are seeni
along the bank of the ''parents'
pond,' "it is a sight 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, aceording 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
groat. It may become less than 40
days or more than 80 (lays.
The young just hatched are put in

From the third to the fifth year,
inclusive, the young need not be kept V
in ponds strictly according to age, but
may be more or less mixed, if neces

also the best and most delicate for y
