OTTAWA FREE TRADER; SATURDAY, MAY 13, 1882.
SUNNY SOUTH. .tourneying Through a Laiy Man e Ind. Kl'IUNO OAKDKN CENTER. Blessed is tho miui who expects nothing for ho shall not be disappointed. Happy Is the traveler who has formed no air castles with tho beauties of Bercsford for comspicuous adornments, for it will suddenly tumble before the ono country store and two or three plain dwellings constituting that extensivo town Still more is he to be congratulated if he has nrenarcd himself to follow a pair of very slow mules to his destination, or span tho dis- nn fnrt in thnir freouent absences. We I UUtV - ------ J considered ourselves very fortunate when, af- aome patient waiting, tho enforced guard over the trunks spoken of in tho last letter was ex- chanced for a lofty scat m a substantial wag on heavily londed with household goods bound for a home in Spring Garden Center. Its own- er was a young gentleman formerly of Dixon Illinois, whose name like ours began with a good honest S. He was evidently glad to meet two ladies hailing from his own state, as tue smiles chasing each other over his good na. tured face plainly betrayed, and was deter mined to spnre no effort to make the long ride of seven miles as brief and comfortablo as circumstances would permit. So while the mules with easy grace waved their long ears back and forth, trudging along with imperturb able dignity in the even tenor of their ways, we wound on and out through the pines, scan ned with curious eyes tho convenient shelter of thu parasols of the passing groves in vari ous stages of babyhood and childhood down to the edge of their early teens, and listened with interest to Mr. S.'s animated descriptions of orange culture, tho profits of market gar dening tor northern cities, tho natives, and the wealthy and attractive young bachelors, who, exiled from their stately homes for the sake of orange lucre, kept their lone halls among tho pines. Theso gentlemen, Mr. S. declared constituted no small portion of the community, and ho added with pathetic em phasis, haviDg tried it for himself, ho knew that running a grovo and preparing one's own dumplings was not a romantic affair. 1' oung ladies, however, were like angels' visits, few and far between, and he believed would re ceive a welcome equal to the angels if they could bo induced to favor the vicinity around Spring Garden with their presence. Like the French priest in regard to tho different varie ties of soup, he, however made a distinction between the northern young lady and the Cracker girl. The Cracker maiden was densely ignorant in regard to all subjects in which intelligent people usually take any in terest, and her mental vision never soared be yound the horizon bounding her own sandy door yard. He had called upon a young lady recently, who during the course of the evening had innocently inquired whether Mr. Garfield was dead yet. Mr. 8. answered the question, but mentally wondered whether that shot which rung around a world would havo pene trated a brain so dull. Having given this striking Illustration of the average intelli gence of Cracker young womanhood, Mr. S. proceeded to say that if there were young la dies in our section of tho country not radically averse to changing their names and local hab itations he would prophesy that in Florida they would find excellent husbands, good "homes and a rosy future. We gravely prom ised that if there were such ladies in or around Ottawa they should be informed of the desira ble intelligence, and through the col umns of the Fkkk Tkaoek we give tho in formation tor tho benefit of those whom it may concern. At this intensely Interesting stage the con. vcrsation was brought to an abrupt termina tion, for a country store loomed up at the road side and Mr. S. declaring his intention of fill ing the brown jug with molasses, sprang from the Wilson and rushed through the open door to purchase the desired article. The owner of a country store in the pine woods does not tie himself down to tho drudgery of tho counter unnecessarily nor wear his life out in tho fric tion of business when tho cool morning winds are inviting him out on tho front porch. Ho does not wait for customers; they wait for him, ami if he is absent in his grove they hunt him up and transact their little business. Mr. fc. louml the molasses barrel but no clerk was vihible. He started to the house some , distance away, unearthed a sleepy-looking boy, escorted him to the store, filled his jug in the leisurely way which tho dignity of the slow moving Florida makes necessary, and return ed in triumph to resume his journey. A we jogged onward Mr. S. told us the story of his long ride from Dixon, III., to Ma con, Georgia, where mud and rain compelled him to take the train for tho remainder of the jouriu y. He had reached Florida in January to fiml it robed in blooming green, with an air as soli and deliciously warm as that of our Lite Juue, and finding plenty of work on his hands had neither tune nor opportunity to wabte in regrets over the inconvenience of roughing it. As the story drew to its close we turned into the broad saudy lane which, with it) orange groves and scattered residences, forms Spring Garden Center, the hamlet to which our pilgrim feet had long been wcnti ing. Inasmuch as this little collection of houses numbers not a small proportion of residents of our own town, we take it for granted, good reader, that you care to know something of this second Ottawa, transported on the wings of stent- from the Illinois valley to the pine 'crowneu heights of the Rt John. Senior in residence, In his extensive property interest nnd in his large bearing groves of trees, is Mr. George II. Nuns. This gentleman, well known in our city, was once intimately con nected with the growth of Ottawa and handled it indred ot acres which now constitute the ! omestcads of our older citizens. Eleven years ago be sailed up the St. John, launched at Beresford, and exploring the unknown depths of the forests in the vicinity of what is now Spring Garden Center found in a ban nock bordering a lake an extensive wild orange grove. With the keen eye of a prac tical butiness man, Mr. Norns saw in these trees the foundation of a magnificent cultivat ed grove, and decided that he had come to Florida to stay. He has since said that aecis ion was worth to him at least $100,000. He cut off the 'tops of the trees, budded them with choice varieties of oranges and carefully cultivated them, and now they yield the re ward of his labors in tho shape of a handsome yearly Income. Mr. Norris foresaw that the time would come when these pine forests would furnish attractive homes to health seek ers, and he bought in one body a Spanish urant of 7000 acies. Since that time Mr. Nor ris has sold winter homes to fifty-two different persons. Tho sales have usually ranged be tween twenty and fifty acres to a single pur chaser, though in ono or two Instances they reached one hundred. He has seen in those eleven years a village spring into existence which can point to its unusually intelligent citizens, who possess tho double endowments of brains and means with character to back them, as proudly as did tho Roman matron of old. Mr. Charles Delano's namo is a very famil iar one in the town where his youth and early manhood were passed, and where h't once gal lantly upheld the democratic standard during the exciting months when the eloquent lime giant and the gaunt, homely but great hearted Lincoln were fighting their intellectual battle fur the presidency of the United States. Since leaving the Ottawa of his early years Mr. De lano has traveled widely through tho country and has passed through varied experiences, not the least thrilling of which was the long and memorable siege of Vicksburg, which he witnessed from his home on the bunks of the Mississippi. Mr. Delano's interests are now closely allied with those of l- loriua, lor ne owns various extensive bodies of land near Spring Garden Center, occupies a seat in the state senate and Is president of the newly constructing Palatka & Indian River railroad, which will give railroad transportation to all those seeking to explore that famous and fer tilo country. In less than a year it is proba ble that tho whistle of tho locouiotivo will wake musical echoes around Spring Garden Center, and when it does one or Mr. Delano's ambitions will bo realized. That the graceful hospitalities of its home circle so cordially ex tended to the stranger will not soon be torgot ten, that the roses blooming on i grounds are fragrant and fair as any that have ever hon ored the lovely family of roses, that tho6o mul berries, which Sirs. Delano so kindly leathered for us one March afternoon, melted with lus cious sweetness in appreciative mouths, are facta we proved by actual demonstration. Those pupils who graduated from the Otta wa High School years ago before its course of study had blossomed into that of a first class seminary, while diplomas were unknown and its present quarters were a dream of the future, will hold in kindly remembrance Frof. Stone and his wife, who is a sister of Mrs. A. G. Freeman and Mrs. W. B. Titus, of this city. They too have linked their business and social future with that of Spring Garden Center. l'rof. Stone's absence on a business trip to the east left Mrs. Stone sole occupant of their pleasant home. There in tho genial compan lonslnp of her books, in the social friendship of the avenue and the supervision of her thrifty and promising grove, and freo from the troublesome bronchitis which away from the charmed air of Florida compels her to whis per her thoughts and wishes to friends, Mrs. Stone finds that each day has its varied respon sibilities and pleasures. Mrs. Stone has seen tho greater portion of her own country, and for a number of years resided at Singapore, India, where Mr. Stone was United States con sul, but she is enthusiastic in the conviction that for her Florida possesses superior attrac tions any portion of the earth she has visited. Her grounds arc full of tropical variety. Four hundred pine-apple plants, shaded from the hot sunshine by a thatching of palmettos, were bursting into a long array of odd and gorgeous scarlet blossoms. Lemon trees show ed their pale golden fruit shining among the smooth green leaves. Tho starch plant was there with its curious brown cone half hidden by the broad leaves. Au immense oleander threw its shadow over the roof tree, while in its pink blossoms were materials for Innumera ble bouquets. The strange, broad leaves of the fig tree were unfolding into full glory. One large plant with a singular leal, bearing a marked resemblance tos delicately lovely fern, was a relic of Mrs. Stoue's oriental home. It had been born away from tho garden of its birth to find, thousands of miles from its na tive land, congenial air under American skies and a home in American soil. Mr. and Mrs. W. 1). Neff have for umo win ters been residents of Florida, and propose henceforth to build their household altars ex clusively there. The air and tho Bky of tho flower land havo won them from their first love, Ottawa, and the orange groves of the fu turo have proved more attractive than the northern vineyard of tho present. Mrs. Nell' finds in tho soft air the balm which her deli cate lungs and feeble health require, and Mr. Nell is an enthusiast in all that relates to his tavorite state. He has made his familiar friends among its trees, plants and flowers ; he knows their faces and habits. Ho has sought and found the hidden springs which ft: J the bay heads, and is quite sure that in the clear still water of one of these bay heads is the, homo for a profitable family of fish. Mr. Neff is the owner of five hundred acres of pine land, finely located, and has a number of or ange groves in various stages of progress. In a visit to ono of these groves Mr. Neff showed us the far famed pomegranate of the Bible, and broke one ot its scarclt buds for us to keep as a souviuer of the ride and of a plant which w:is I'auiMiis hcl'iip' Flurul i r-. limn the sea of oblivion. Side by side with this pilgrim of tho oldest civilization rose the dainty blossoms of the reach tree, promising an abundance of that delectable dish, shed poaches powdered with sugar. In Mrs. Neff's garden is the latania, which she brought from Mr. Brush's nursery as a feeble little plant, now transformed into a large bush, whose branches cover a circle of many feet and throw its gay blossoms to the right and left Mr. Mortimer Buell has a grove in fine con dition, and Mr. Montrose, of tho Clifton, cwas a cumber of acres on which a grove will tome day stand. In the days of the Dear past no sign was more popular or more generally sought than the one which boro the words 'Thilllps Bros." Mr. W. L. Phillips, of that firm, has a host of Ottawa friends, who bade him farewell with regret and the conviction that what might prove his gam was certainly the city's loss. He seeks in Florida the health which ho lost by his too great devotion to business, and has purchased 27 acres of pine land, of which five are already covered with young trees well ad vanced on the road to bearing. His friends in this city will certainly wish that he who proved himself the housekeeper's staunch friend may reap his reward in the juiciest and ! finest of oranges. Over tho way from Mr. Norris's roomy homo is the white building which boars the misnomer of hotel, and is in reality tho tempo rary abode of Messrs. Tollman Libby and Geo. Caldwell, names very familiar to many read ers of tho Fkkk Tuadku. The hotel is inno cent of carpets, and is only partially furnished. Mrs. Libby did not come south to undertake the care and responsibility ot a boarding houso, though she kindly permits a few of her La Salic couuty friends to avail themselves of her hospitable roof. Almost daily, however, strangers walk up to the supposed hotel and seek to become its inmates while they investi gate tho advantages and disadvantages ot Sorinir Garden Center. Finding neither there nor elsewhere in tho little hamlet a lodging for the sole of their foot, they are compelled t return to Del.and, which possesses two good hotels, and pleased with their reception they locate near that town. ihoso who are ac quainted with Mrs. Libby know, that where she iroes the sunshine of good feeling usually follows, and our wagon rides brimmed over with mirthful enjoyment though they were verv staid affairs indeed, Kiuma and Dick never varying the uniform monotony of their walk. Messrs. Moby and uuuweu nave found that their saw mill opens the way to extensive business which promises to be very orotitable in tho future. They are completely equipped for making the different varieties of lumber and sningies, ami as mocouniry is rap Idly settling up houses are in demand. Per sous who are clearing up their lands as a pre paration for future groves are glad to have the timber removed, and the lumber once sawed commands a price little interior to what is naid in this citv. Messrs. Libby and Cald- well have found constant employment. From early morning to late evening the saw receives tho fallen trunks of once lofty pines and deftly converts them into tho prosaic materials for dwellinc houses. Among the pleasant and always goou-natur- cd people who gathered at tho hotel table was Mr. f.noch nagenuaugn, oi ciica, iiunois. Mr. H. had used the many weeks of his stay at Spring Garden Center very ellectively. liniw in irenpranhv comnletelv: he Wfl good judge of orauge land; ho had gntSered manifold memorials of the Land of Flowers, from air plants to shells. He was an excellent pilot when the way was doubtful and was al ways ready to throw a gleam of sunshiny fun over the novel ways of life in tho Lazy Man's Land. These persons iust described constituted the croun most interesting to Ottawa readers, but other cities had sent to Spring Garuen Center a number of choice citizens. Ihe white haired genial Mr. C, of Wisconsin, had a grove whose beautiful trees were the open letter read of all men bearing testimony to the owner's science and skill. Mr. and Mrs. S., of Chica go, evidently lived at home. The open-handed, kindly Mr. and Mrs. 1L, of Springfield, Illi nois, had a fine bearing orove in excellent condition. The old hotel would have lost half its brightness with the departure of young Mr. and Mrs. A., of Michigan, and we hope they will remember a certain Sabbath ride to church through tho pine woods as long and W pleasantly as we shall. We have lingered so tardily in the sandy avenue that it is useless to ask you, reader, to accompany us through the woods to our tem porary resting place or listen to the details of succeeding days. But to satisfy your natural curiosity we will give you a few facts and fig ures. First of all, tho orangetreo is to r loriua what corn is to Illinois, its first greatest pro- duction and its staff. The soil can be coaxed to yield corn in small quantities and produces with sufficient care an abundance of lemons, figs, guavas, pineapples, bananas, peaches, strawberries, mulberries, blackberries and veg etables, but tho orange is its pride and glory. The circle of gentlemen on the hotel porch in the evening forgot politics completely and eagerly discussed orange culture, comparing ways and methods with an interest mat never grew weary. Their example should be fol lowed by every settler who hopes to make his grove a success. Don't go to Honda to invest your surplus means if you are too impatient to trait for re sults. An orange tree does not usually bear before iis eighth or ninth year, though as a compensation its productive powers increase with every added year and it will outlive two or three generations of men. Your land, ac cording to its location and quality, will cost you from ten or fifteen to twenty or twenty-five dollars an acre. It must be cleared, and the clearing cannot cost you less than twenty dol lars. our orange trees.it they ure ot good quality, three or four years old and properly budded, will cost tiny cents per tree, wun nt- teen cents additional tor setting them out. Each acre will afford room for about sixty trees. They must be fertilized, it on pine land, twice a year and kept free from weeds bv plowing. Meanwhile you must posse.-s your soul with patience. The day will conic when you shall reap in golden iruu the result of your long waiting, and the acre over w hich you havo toiled will yield its revenue of hun dreds of dollars. Don't rush away to Spring Garden Center under the impression that it is a fashionable watering place, tor it you do you win be gne vounIv disappointed. You will seek for t gay whirl m vain. Life glides on smoothly under the tranquil skies, but one day is very much like every ottier day. Hops are un known, the roller skating has not penetrated with its thundeious roll to the depths of the pines. The Florida hollo often wears a sun. bonnet and sometimes rides in a cracker car riage, whose ponderous wheel, broad tired, and long lever rising like a partially erect flag polo behind, are picturesquely unconven tional. Again, the absence oi our beautmil northern grass makes a painful blur in the harmony ot nature s painting, i he eye seeks it with a painful Bcnsc ot loss. I lie avenue sandy and, whisper it low, it harbors those tiny but bloodthirsty tormentors Known as fleas. So we must candidly confess that while heaven certainly lent to Spring Garden Center its air and sky, it is not quite Paradise. Lypia Stuawn. tinware of Them.

The Republican majority in the House has been Increased by two votes. Mr. Lynch, co). ored, has been given the seat occupied by Gen eral Chalmers of Mississippi, thus reducing tho Democratic vote by one, and adding one to tho Republican vote. Mr. Lynch is now the only representative of the colored race in Congress the only one that has been in Congress since Senator Bruce, of Mississippi, left the Senate, more than a year ago. The newly seated congressman is a mulatto of very light color, with a face that is decidedly more Caucasian than African in its features. He argued his own case with great ability, and received the entire vote of the Republican majority and one Democratic vote, that of Mr. Ellls,,of Louisi ana, and was sworn in with great demonstra tion of applause from the Republican side of the House. The Democrats lose ono of their readiest and most brilliant debaters in General Chalmers. THK FAST .MAI I, SKUVICK. The House on Saturday adopted the report of the Conference Committee on the Post Office Appropriation Bill. A number of mem bers were very decided in tho expression that, unless tho other great cities were to share with New York the benefit of this service, the ap propriation should bo struck out altogether. Mr. Bobcson, in tho course of his remarks, said very distinctly that ho voted for the con ference report with the understanding that tho other great cities beside New York were not to be deprived of their share of the appropria tion, and it the Postmaster-General should do this he would violate the spirit and intent of tho law making the appropriation. Mr. Sprin ger said tho appropriation was for the great railroads, but he did not add that two of the great railroads only have, up to this time, had any appreciable share of the appropriation. Mr. Robeson's remarks were drawn out by a statement of Mr. Caswell that the Postmaster General did not intend to make any new start ing points, but to hold on to New York as the great centre of the universe. THE I'UHLIC MUNTI.Vl. A new Public Printer has been appointed, and this is a local event in Washington that is considered ot quite as much importance, by fifteen hundred employees, and thrice that number that are dependent upon them, as the appointment of a cabinet officer. Important changes are expected in the management and personnel of the office. Since the war the public printing has cost the Government not less than f 50,000,000. Tho Government Print ing Office is by far the largest establishment! tho kind in the world, and a more careful management of it would save more than a million annually to the Government. The main reason of the immense outlay lies in the fact of the practice of Congress ordering the printing of voluminous and utterly worthless documents, that find their way, by the cart load, to the pulp mills. THE WHISKY LOBBY. The whisky merchant princes from all the large cities havo been hovering about Con gress for weeks, urging the passage of a bill to extend indefinitely the time that whisky can remain in bond. By means and methods best known to wealthy lobbyists, they have made such headway that they claim a majori ty in tho Senate in favor of their bill. The effect of this measure will be to reduce very seriously the revenues of tho Government. It is believed that the President will veto the bill, if it shall be passed in the shape desired by the Whisky Lobby. Vennor. Yen nor has hardly had his usual success in his weather forecasts from month to month for some time past, or rather, his general predic tions came true only in spots. He was more fortunate in several " long range forecasts," as ho calls them, whereby he is encouraged to give the following comprehensive outline of what, in his opinion, will bo tho prominent features of the summer and autumn of 1882 : First A season that will merit the designa tion of cool to cold and wet generally. Not that there will not be terms of summer warmth and, even of intense heat tor periods, but rather that these last will appear in the retrospect as of but comparative insignificance, or as the ex ceptions to the general rule. Second lhe season will bo marked by not only great precipitation, but by a mugginess of atmosphere generally, caused by the reeking condition of the earth and tho long continu ance of clouded sky. This will result in peri ods of extreme sultriness and heavy weather, during which the thunder and hail storms will occur. In other words, tho summer will be the reverse of clear and dry. Third There is a likelihood of Juno and August frosts in northern, western nnd south ern sections, and a general cold wave may oc cur toward midsummer. Fourth The autumn months will continue moist. September will probably give rains nnd floods iu western Canada and western and southern sections of tho United States. Octo ber will bo much the same, with early cold and mow falls. November will begin the winter of 1882-K! a winter likely to be mem orable on account of its exceptionally heavy snow falls nnd very cold weather over the whole northern hemisphere. That "a cold and wet summer is invariably followed by a cold anil stormy winter" is a truth now so wcl! proven and borne out by the testimony of past records that we cannot lightly put it aside ; and if wc have good and sufficient grounds tor pre dieting the loriner, as we most assuredly have at this time, it is but right mat we snouiu warn tho people of the latter in good season. Fifth and last The approaching season will probably be the first of a couple of wet summers, and as 1882 is so is 1883 likely to be.
