PORTER & HARDING, Publishers. SUBSCRIPTION 50 CENTS PE HONTH. $5.00 per Year. 5cts. per Copy at News Stands. The latest development at Kis simmee is the purchase of , more than 1 5 000 acres of land about eight miles from Kissimmee by the Florida Home and Plantation Company of Wahington, D. C. This company has laid out its land into small tracts and is actively en gaged in improving the same and locating settlers thereon. Ex. The caboose was full of the crew's personal effects and posses sions, which loss probably amount ed to more than the value of the car. The fire staited from some waste and oil where ihe lamps were cleaned and was breaking out ot the doors before it was discov ered. Much credit is due the hookeys, vho pulled the heavy truck a mile, most of the way through heavy 4 sand. 1 Gents Furnishing. s Weeds along railroad tracks are now killed by- the "electric weed kieler." It consists of a car car rying a dynamo, which sends a heavy current into a sort of rake of fine wires dragging among the weeds on each side of the track. As the wires touch them the weeds are "electrocuted" down to their smallest rootlets. It is pro posed to introduce the same sys tem in farming. Ex. H. F. Hole, of Fulton, is the pi oneer of a new industry diamond back terrapin farming. In his pen, built in the water, at Fulton, he has ico terrapin, and next year he will probably have five thousand. The Florida terrapin is of the same species as the famed dia mond back terrapin c f Maryland. There is no difference in the taste so far as can be detected by ordi nary mortals, yet- there is a great difference in the price, owing to the reputation the Maryland terra pin enjoys. While Florida terra pin bring but $26. those taken from the waters of Chesapeake bay sell at $37 to 60 a dozsn. Even at $20 a dozen, though, Mr. Hole expects to make the business pay. Ek.

No. i was right after and connected with them, and No. 3 in turn connected with No. 2, and" still they were not in reach of the fire, which by that time was seen to in a caboose on the S. S. O. & G. track. No. 2 had to return to headquar ters for more hose before the could be reached, and then, after getting it in reach of the fire there was several minutes 'delay in getting water turned on. In a few minutes after getting water the fire was out. The roam and sidetracks were all b:ui y afire, which wi-ie also soon put cut Had the train kft the car nearer the depot, it would have 1 en put out with but little damag, but the crew said they were afraui of et tincr fire to the oil Louse.
