Seventeen Varieties of the Luscious

Rev. R. F. Sweet entertained a liitle
gathering at Trinity rectoiy in a most
novel and inBtrnctiTe manner this morn
ing. Pursuant to the invitation a num
ber of grocers and other fruit dealers,
members of the press and personal friends
Assembled at the rectorj at 10 o'clock .
In the dining room Mr. Sweet had pre
pared accommodations for testing a great
variety of oranges grown on Den mere
fruit frm nearSanford. Fla.. aad owned
by Mr. Sweet's friend, Rev. Lyman
Thelps, who has become one of the fere
most orange growers in the world, having
now on his place 140 varieties.
Seventeen varieties were exhibited by
Mr. Sweet for inspection this morning.
They were the Malta, Malta
Ovals, Imperial Blood, King of
8iam, Jaffa, Majarica, Sweet Seville.
Early Oblong, MaltavBlood. Sanguinea,
Mandarin, St. Michaels, Citrus-Deca-mani,
Ink Shaddocks, Pomela. Navel
and Grape Fruit. The first orange cut
was a St. Michael, a very large variety. It
was found to have a tough, thick skin, and
the pulp was almost tasteless. The see
ondwaaajaff. which had a lighter
skin, and the flkvor was delightful. The
Early Oblong and Malta-Blood next test
ed in turn were found to be luscious in
taste, and juicy, and while the rich blood
like appearance of the Malta Blood was
not detected in the Early Oblong, both
were found to be very sweet. The Sweet
Savil'e also found many admirers. The
Grape Fruit sample was the last
tested. It is a large orange, being much
the color of a lemon. It i9 an importa
tion from China; the inner skin is ex
ceedingly bitter, having much the taste of
quinine, while the pulp has a sour flavor,
but eaten with sugar it is most delight
ful. An attempt was made to gain an ex
pression of favor as among some of th c
most popular varieties, but some difficul
ty was experienced in discriminating as
to the Malta-Blood. Jaffa,
Sweet Seville and Early Ob
long. All of which won staunch
friend& and some were unable to state
preference as between two or more of
these kinds each seeming to possess in iu
self a striking advantage not characteris
tic of the others, though distinctly differ
ent. No attempt will be made here to dis
CUM the merits of the different varieties
Of this popular fruit. Mr. Phelps, on
whose farm these oranges were grown,
wrote the Florida Dispatch an interest
ing letter on the subject of orange culture
four years ago in which he said:
I have not chanted my opinion as in
favor of Jaffa and Majorica first, Jaffa for
tenderness of pulp, absence of 6eed, vinus
flavor, as well as a prolific tree. I do
not say it is the best orange in the world.
The Majorica his a more handsome and
thinner rind, more attractive in shape,
not seedy, but more so than the Jaffa,
but its flivor and acid in a hot spring day
are unsurpassed to quench thir6t. The
Maltese Blood is a very handsoaae orange.
Habit of the tree, to the casual observer,
very like the Jaffa and Majorica.
We shall never grow enough
Blood oranges to glut the market. They
are fancy in looks, and never disappoint
when sampled. The Early Oblong is a
good bearer and graded well for young
trees. The Maltese Oval is a very solid
orange, keeps well and is prolific. The
Mandarine is my preference in taste.
The St. Michael is the most pro
lific orange I grow.
The writer then goes into an exhaus
tive review of the field of
orange culture, the plans employed by
To those who, through Mr. Sweet's
courtesy, were privileged this morning
to sample the different varieties of this
wonderful fruit, the occasion proved one
of great interest, instruction and
actual revelation to those who before
tad had no conception whatever of the
varied manner in which this popular fruit
is cultivated and successfully grown.

Crop Correspondent Campbell's report
to the commissioner of agriculture for
February shows that the proportion of
the corn crop remaining on hand for con
sumption is 35 per cent, the proportion
of the entire product of 1890 to tbe con

going out of the county 20; the propor

This morning's passenger from St.
Louis on the C , B. &. Q., due at 4:45. ar
rived three hours late, owing to a collis
ion at Gtlesburg. The night express
coming out of St. Louis and in charge of
Conductor Terry, with Engineer Horn in
the cab, was standing on the customary
siding at Galesburg, waiting for connec
tions, when Conductor Frazer's freight
from this city, and pulled by Eogineer
Range's engine, rushed into it. The em
brace of the two locomotives was
not an affectionate one and the
unoffending passenger engine seemed to
feel worse than the one causing the mis -chief,
as it was tipped over on its side,
while the other one had it boiler staved
in. Both engines were rendered useless
and the main line was so blocked with
freight cars that it was necessary after
providing the passenger train with a new
engine to back down to Monmouth and
come up that way. The accident is at
tributable to the freight train en
gineer who is said to have
lost his bearings on going into the yards
at Gilesburg. Conductor Frazer, how
ever, realized the danger and had his
hrakenien out and 14 to 16 brakes set be
fore the engines came together, but it was
impossible to avert the collision.
No one was injured'in the passenger
train, and considering circumstances the
damage to the freight train was not as
great as it might have been.

"Than tory ynu publishel in the Dem

So said W. C Hay ward, the elevator

the reporter's note book, Mr. Hayward
drew tht- diamond and put the "Joe" in
in it. ' Simple enough, don't yon see,"
he said, and then added: "I have seen
hundreds of bags of grain with that trade
mark on it. As for diamonds, Mr. Rey
nolds never wore them. He was a plain
man in his dress, quiet and unassuming.'
A river man once asked Mr. Reynolds
how be came to adopt the mark, and, smil

"It was when I was a comparatively
young man, a hundred years ago, or per

the easiest way to do it. and so had Dia

"Never in my life, and I know very
little about them."
