We tako the following from an ex
hngo: Thero is to be found at
Rookport a museum of ores and pro
ducts of Texas. Among these is a
box containing two fiuo buiohes of
oranges. One bunch ot twelve beau
tiful orahges was grown by th-t en
terprising gentleman and eminent
lawyer, Major W. S. Dugat. Wo will
give their history in the Major's own
language. The treo from which
thoy were taken was brought from
California in 1886 and was 18 inches
high. It is of the oelebrated man
darin variety. In I889 it riponed
three oranges; in I89O it ripened
ovonty; and in 1891, or the fourth
year of itB TexaB habitat, it ripened
246 splendid oracges. Major Dugat
further states that tho Japanese Per
nimmon suoceded well last year.
It blooms in November aud ripens in
Tho other buuoh of oranges sent
by Mr. Doughty was grown by his
son-in-law, Mr. Don Teas. These
oranges aro splendid specimens; in
dcod for quality and size they cannot
ho excelled in any country. Wo re
gret that tho variety is not stated.
Mr. C. P. EidBon, sends Prof. Attwa
ter a bottlo of Mustang wine of the
vintago of 1831.
These products sent by tho above
named enterprising and pro
gressive gentlemen to the
Rookport ' museum are now
earofully labelled and urrnnged in the
exhibit of the coatt counties of South
west Texas and reflect great credit on
If tho Rookport lands produce
oranges, tho land alono is worth $500
pcr acre, and if it is near the city of
Rockport it should be worth what su
burban lands aro always worth as com
pared to Uioho distant from commercial
centers. These lands are cheap, and
Texas Bhonld encourago tho culture of
this golden fruit. If land is good
for oranges and also near a city whioh
has every reasonable prospect for be
