LAURENS COUNTY TRAVELER
WRITES FRON FLORIDA
By Jesse T. Crawford
Bartow, Fla., Jan. 16, 1912.
Editor The Advertiser:
Ab I sit at my window and gaze out
across the orange groves laden with
gulden fruit and putting on a new
growth, in preparation for the fragrant
blossoms that open in February, 1
wonder If old Laurens Is really wrap
ped In snow. Someone wrote me that
you had had a snow, and that Icicles
wore banging from the trees. I try
to imagine how everything looks up
there, but the banging Icicles are re
placed by huge Btredmers of Spanish
moss swaying gently in the light
breeze, and the warm sunshine of wln
I ter drives from my mind's eye the
threatening snow clouds and the keen,
Vet Florida is not all sunshine and
flowers, asfV/e often read. 1 have been
down here six weeks and think, that
it has rained at least half of the time:
something unusual the old settlers tell
me. As is probably known, Florida
has a wet season during July, August
nnc* September, then during the rest of
the year only occasional showers. But
as yet, the rains are holding on with
the tonacltv of a turtle; and the gen
oral question ia "When will they rpilt?"
Then too. an occasional freeze happens
here In Polk County, which is about
two hundred and twenty-live miles be
low Jacksonville. Only one light frost
has occurred so far. and part of the
vines were still growing In brother's
potato patch when he had them plow
ed up since Christmas. The old set
lers predict a very mild winter, but
I rather guess they are liable to get
fooled some fines. At any rate, the
orange growers are talkng no chances,
and are placing oil burners or piles
of wood at Intervals through their
groves and will bs ready to fire them
on short net Ice.
This Is my second visit to Florida.
My fust vh it^ lasted only a few days,
and this time I came for my health.
Consequently I have not seen as much
of the country as I would like to nor
am I very well acquainted with Jive
stock and farm conditions. 1 no
tice that boys corn clubs are being
organized, but I hear nothing of coun
try affairs or stock shows that are so
common In South Carolina, and that
have done so much to put our state in
the foremost ranks as an agricultural
state. One drawback to stock raising
In Florida is tick fever. I suppose
that something is being done by the
state to eradicate the ticks, but as
Florida has no fence laws, you can
see what a proposition the individual
stock raiser is up against. Though
with propar care I believe that stock
raising or dairying could be made a
profitable business. .\"o expensive
barns for wintering are necessary,
while an abundance of hay can be
made from the velvet bean and the
beggar weed. Then too dairy pro
ducts and dairy cows are such a fancy
price Putter sells at forty-five cents
pro- pound while the average dairy
cow is never sold for less than one
The Irrigated truck farm is one of
the ; . t Interesting things that I
have yet seen. 1 refer to the overhead
irrigation which Is unheard of in our
part of the county. The system is
simple but expensive. It costs on an
average of three hundred dollars per
acre to install the plant, but after
once placed, 1 don't see why it should
not last indefinitely. Briefly speak
ing, the system consist.-; of an artesian
well, a gas engine, and a pump to
which is connected the pipes that dis
tribute the water over the field. The
main pipe, which is from four to ten
I Inches In diameter, extends the whole
length of the field Then }.t intervals
Of about thirty feet smaller pipes rad
iate nt right angles from the main
pipe and extend across the field. The
latter pipes have small holes every few
Inches which allow the water to es
cape in a fine spray. Jt the piping Is
placed on posts about ten feet high
there Is ample room underneath to cul
tivate the crop and at the same time
be assured of a bountiful supply of
The farmers sav that the problem
now isnot how to mako tho vegetables,
but how to sell them. Last year the
market was so overcrowded with cab
bage that many of the farmers sold
only a car or two from their whole
farm. To prevent such a state of af
fairs again some of tho wide-awake
truckers are contemplating putting in
canning factories and In this way use
up nil vegetables that are not shipped.
Cabbage, lettuce and strawberries are
the principal crops growing now. Some
aro just planting out their cabbage,
while others have the bcglning to
head. How does soventy-flvo cents
a quart for strawberries strike you?
That is what they aro soiling for now.
From what I have seen of Florida
so far I think that I may safely say
(hat it Is a land of great opportunities
for the man who is willing to work.
Understand, the work Is not as hard
as It is on the farms of our country,
but at the samo time it is work. And
Florida Is growing. Not'only do thous
ands of tourists turn their money
loose here, but people are moving in
from all parts of the United States
and clearing up the swamps and pine
woods. . Truck farms are absorbing
the cypi'OJS and palmetto swamps, and
the orange groves nre fast taking the
place of the huge lone lotff pines.
Polk County Is the homo of the peb
ble phosphate that is used so exten-,
slvely in the manufacture of fertili
zers. In my next letter 1 will tell
something about the great beds of
rock that were deposited ae,es ago and
that are now furnishing employment
for thousai (is of people,

HOW TO CUKE RHEUMATISM.
It Is an Internal Disease and Requires
an Internal Remedy.
The cause of Rhe matlsm and kin
dred diseases is an excess of uric
aeld in the blood. To euro this terri
ble disease this acid must be expelled
and tho system so regulated that no ;
more acid will formed in exces
sive quantities. Rheumatism is an In
ternal disease and requires an Inter
nal . medy. Rubing with Oils and
Liniment will not cure, affords only,
temporary relief at best, causes you to
delay the proper treatment, allows the
malady to get a firmer hold on you.
Liniments may ease the pain, but they
will no more cure Rheumatism that
paint will change the fibre of rotten
Science has at last discovered a
perfect and complete cure, which Is
called "Rheumaclde." Tested in hun
dreds of cases. It has effected the most
marvelous cures: we believe It will
cure you. Hheumacide "gets at the
joints from the inside." sweeps the
poisons out of the system, tones up the
stomach, regulates the liver and kid
neys and makes you well all over.
Rheumaclde "strikes the root of the
disease nnd removes its cause." This
splendid remedy is sold by druggists
