A FLORIDA VENICE
Bill Arp Raves Over the Settlement Known
as Clear Water-Out on a Fishing Trip
He Discovers That There Are
Thirteen in the Party
Yesterday we visited the North island,
or Palmetto island, as it is called, and
spent a happy day. There were thirteen
in the party. We dident know this until
we were out at sea. and it disturbed our
tranquility a little-just a little. Phil
osophy doesent drive away our supersti
tions. This was the longest sail we have
taken, and we carried enough lunch along
to feed us a week, as we thought if any
thing should Lappen to us like there did
to Bobinson Crusoe we would not starve.
It was a delightful sail of five miles, and
Mr. Whitmore's little boat "Columbia"
plowed the waves'eagerly and sometimes
threw the pure salt water over us and
made the children scream with delight.
Mr. Whitmore, our Swedish sailor, said:
"It vas werry healty-dis:zalt vater." In
deed that is what gives this place its name
andreputation-the coiftinousflow of pure
salt water into the harbor from the nu
merous passes between the island. It is
always coming in and going out, and there
is no stagnation. These island are long
and narrow. On the west side they are
fringed with a beautiful beach, just as far
as the eye can reach, and the surf is. ever
lashing the sandy shore, leaping and
lapping and foaming, coming and going
and moaning. The young folks brought
their bathing suits along, and rejoiced in
struggling with the white capped waves.
Some fishermen have built a palmetto
house nearby which is both a shelter and
a hiding place. It is prettily thatched on
top and on the sides withplam leaves, the
stems of which are woven and- interlaced
like the basket makers do it. All around
are groves of palm trees whose beautiful
umbrella tops shaded us from the sun.
Beneath their shade we at' up everything
we had brought. As 1 walked along the
shell covered beach I saw a man-just a
small speck of a man-a mile away, and
I thought it must be Crusoe's man
Friday; Soon I saw other specks move
out from the palmettoes, and these seemed
like the cannibals who were getting ready
to coast a prisoner. But t heyallplunged
into the foamy waters and Mr. Whitmore
said it was a bathing party from Dun
Eden. This whole' island is made of
shells-disintegrated shells-and I should
think would make good phosphate. Every
gulf storm throws a new coat upon it, or
takes away one. The fishermen get both
profit and sport around these passes where
the groupers and pompano and Spanish
mackerel abound. It took us only half
an hour to make the outward trip, but
much longer to return, for it was sailing
against the wind, and we had to tack and
retack all the way. It was a day to be
remembered, and all the thirteen were
landed safe about sundown. Every day
somebody goes out on one of these island
excursions, for they are cheap-only.$1.50
for the whole party. There areno horses to
feed or run away, no strain on anything.
Indeed there is not a single private car
ria-e in Clear Water; no driving around
and leaving cards. If you can't walk you
can sail qr row. It is all air and water.
Spring seems fairly upon us now. The
oleanders are in bloom and the odor of
the yellow jasmine perfumes the air.
Fruit-bearing tress are all in bloom. I
saw an alligator pear tree in full blossom.
It was eighteen inches in diameter. Its
fruit is something between a banana and
a muskmelon and is eaten with sait and
pepper. Cabbages grow to twenty-five
pounds in weight and tomatoes are large
and colored to sprefection. Something is
growing all the year round and yet na
ture seems to have her seasons here as in
higher latitudes. And now let me say to
numerous corretpondents, who have asked
a hundered questions, that I have no type
'writer and can only say that I have no in
terest whatever directly or remotely in
booming Clear Water. I am not a real
estate agent. I haveno land tosell, but
the more I travel and the longer I stay
the more I am satisfied with what nature
has done for this place. I have an: ear
nast desire to own a winter residence here,
where my wife anid others of the family
can come and ba sk in Florida sunshine
and breathe thes4i.t air of the gulf. It is
possible to live as cheaply here as any
where and a cottage of six rooms can be
built for $1,000. There is a good bakery
here, and with good bread and butter and
fish and vegetables there is no lack of food.
Uncle Dan McMullen has been living
here fifty-two years and,.says it is cer
tainly the healthiest region on the globe.
I go to Apopka and Oakand and Kissi
mee this week and then to Iverness and
Crystal river and Brooksville, all cf which
are said to be lovely. I am studying
Florida without a book;but somehow I
have no desire to be at the grand opening
of Mr. Flagler's new hotel at Lake Worth.
It would be a scene too bewildering for me
and too depleting. Ilike such things at
a distance. But I like the hospitable, un
pretending towns, whiose hearts are warm
and the people live in, close communmon.
These are the people who fight our bat
tles in war and respect law and order in
times of peace and preserve the common
wealth. These are the humble, content
ed people to whom Burns and Pope and
Goldsmith paid tribute and whose graves
Gray immortalized jin his elegy. These
people have their faults and their pre
judices, but in time of trouble I would
rather depend upon one of them than
upon a score of pure-proud aristocrats.
Bow thoughful they are of their children's
morals. "Mr. McMullen," said I, "if it
won't pay you to market these oranges
why don't you make wine of them. I see it
selling in town at 50 cents a quart and it
is nearly as good as sherry."
"Yes." said he, "I know it makes good
wine, but there is a lot of grand-children
growing up around me and I am afraid
to take the responsibility. I am not a
pi-ohibitionist, but I don't want to lead
my own flesh and blood into tempation."
He lives four miles from town and the

ground beneath his beautiful grove was
yellow with the golden fruit. Late returns
from the sale of common oranges have
discourged the owners from gathering
and boxing and hauling to town and
taking their chances with the commission
merchant. The 6,000,000 boxes that a
month ago were supposed to bring re
present $6,000,000 of profit will hardly
reach the half of it. And yet everybody;
wants a grove and everybody who lives
here or winters here ought to have small
one for home ornament and house use.
I have never ceased to admire the exquisite
beauty of an orange tree in blossom or in
fruit, and if I get a home here I will have
a dozen bearing trees transplanted to my
lot. What is Florida for but to enjoy?
This delictious climate was given it by a
kind providence to restore the invalids of
more northen latitudes. How many peo
ple have I asked"what brought you here?"
and the almost invariable answer is, "I
was suffering from lung trouble or asthma
or catarrh and I am cured." or "My fath
er or my mother was suffering and moved
here." Certain it is that I hzvo improved
and our little grand-child is now a picture
of rosy health. To save one precious life
is worth more that the travel and expense
of getting here.
But how about the summers? I don't
know from experence, but our Cartersville J
friends who have lived here for several
years smile at the idea of the summers
being any more oppressive than in upper
Georgia. Mr. Anspaugh and his wife both
say that the cooling breeze from the gulf
never fails them day or night, and I will
believe anything they tell .me. Mr. An
spaugh is a plasterer by trade and has held
more mortar over his rhoulder than any
man in Florida. He is a horny-handed
son of toil and those are the men who
have no talent for lying or exaggeration.

A WONDERFUL STAR. th:
You Must Look Quick You Would See It gr
in the Sunset Sky. dif
[New York Sun.] l
Low in the west, half hidden in the be
evening twilight, there may be seen just
now a star that 300 years ago earned for
itself the name of "Mira," the Wonderful. ce
And its behavior at present seems to jus- iIy
fify its name. It is in the constellation an
of the Whale, and is known to astrono
mers as Omicron Ceti. It is only visible n
now for a brief period after sundown, i
when it may be been hanging just above na
the verge of the horizon, under Jupiter tb
and the Pleiades. Its red color distin
guishes it. although higher up there is iDI
another reddish star in the same constel- gel
lation. Last winter the spot which this col
star occupies was absolutely vacant to the sti
naked eye. But a telescope showed that
a faint star was glimmering there. Since W
then that star has blazed up a thousand- mi
fold in brightness! Now it shines with a an
ruddy hue, suggestive of a vast and fiere t
conflagration, in a few weeks, probably,
it will have faded, but in. the mean .time WE
the progress of the seasons will have its
buried it in the sun's rays, and when it m<
emerges in the east next summer no eye
will be able to see it again without tls
copic aid. For a few days yet "the Mar- tO
vel of the Whale" may be discerned 'be- "8
tween 7 and 7,30 o'clock in the evening. thi
An opera glass may be needed to show it
clearly in the bright twilight.
What renders this wonderful variable mi
star particularly interesting .at present is ces
the facttha it is now brighter than it 2
usually is at its maximum, and that the se
period of maximum his been delayed for ho:
several weeks. According to the calcu
lations of the astronomers, it should have pei
been an its brightest on Feb.17. But it wk
has continued to grow more briliant since dir
that time, until it has become several
times as bright as it was them. e
Yet these facts would possess but a sall1 far
degree of interest outsidethe observatories Ui
if we did not know something of the di- dif
mension of the star Mira and of the sig
iiificance of the changes which we behold pei
in it. Mira is asun, and when it blazes It
up, as it is now doing, it must suddenly un
pour forth a quantity of heat that if con- p1
centrated upon the earth at close quartersri
would melt it and turn it into ahot cloud,.i
When Mira is faintest it is of less than bel
the ninth magnitude; when brightest it wa
has been known to equal a star of the first the
magnitude. That happened in 1779, when
it was as briliant as Aldebaran. At such
a time it emits 2000 times as much light jin
as it does when at a minimum;2,000 times| if 1
as much heat, too, probably. Now when for
it is near- the third magnitude it is 300h
times as bright as it was two or three ho
months ago. The complete cycle of change th<
that this wonderful sun runs through ma
averages about eleven months. But for cit<
more than two-thirds of that period it re
mains faint and invisible to the naked eye trU
Its brightening begins suddenly, and it | rc
usually gains light faster than it subse- stri
quently fades. As it brightens, the blood n
color characteristic of its light when at a
minimum changes to an orange red. Its ~
sr*ctrum then reveals the tremendous .pit
i.ature of the change that Mira is under- of
going; it becomes filled with vivid lines S
which indicate that the vaporous envelope S
of the star has caught lire, so to speak, en
and is burning with inconceivable inten
sity, hydrogen in particular flming high ab4
above the other elements. According to al
Mr. Lockyer's hypothesis these phenc I'
mnena are produced by the repeated colli- on
sions of swarms of meteors, revolving tet
around one another in elliptical orbits. Du
But a more probable view of the matterth
would seemito be that Mira is an expir-.
ing sun, surrounded with a partially JE
cooled envelope of metallic vapors whose wa
absorption almost extinguishes its light th<
except, at intervals, when tbere comes an b
outbreak of the bent up forces within, or
a heat eruption, which bursts the shell bl<
and fires the surrounding gases to a daz thb
zling incandescence. so
If we knew jaist how far away Mira is.
we could tell how it compares in size with eit
our sun. We do know, however, that it is mi
probably a larger sun than ours. We may ho
fairly assume that its parallax is not sai
more than one-third of a second, whichb
would make its distance from the earth h
over 550,000 times greater than the dis- Po
tance of the sun. If it really isas far off an
as that, then, when it flames with the ofi
brightness of a first magnitude star, it t
must be pouring out eight times as much .h
light as the sun gives forth. But when w'
it is at its minimum its light can be onlyl in;
one two-hundred-and-fiftieth of the sun's y
light. And in either case the intensity of h
its heat probably accords with that of its h
Surely we cannot suppose that there it
are inhabited worlds revolving around
such a sun as that. But worlds may be
there that were once inhabited. Did any at
prophet forewarn them of a time when I I
their day-making sun would become a hi
destroying furnace, and their elements
would dissolve with fervent heat?-Gar
