; W. H. Young;, noW of Kxags
ville, but late of Iowa, was a visi
tor to Brownsville yesterday and
day before; The gentleman came
down especially to investigate con"
citions in this section. He1 met
fits old friend P. IE Vasey, and
civil engineer, E. B. Gore, and
spent the day Wednesday in visit
ing tne pumping station, Buena
Vista truck; farm, the proposed
drainage district and other places
where information as to the possi
bilities of the country might be
gained. Mr. Young was much
pleased with his investigations and
left yesterday for; points up the
river seeking, further information
He is an enthusiastic advocate of
drainage, and is not in the least
frightened by the possibility of salt
or other alkaline matter in the soil
kere, saying ..they were difficulties
easily overcome. Mr. Young is a
civil engineer and needs no special
instruction with regard to the
formation of the country and the
work necessary to be done to put
the land in shape for cultivation.
He has a fine farm at Kingsville,
and was among the first to settle
in that growing little city.
The trend of prospectors is still
this way. Among the latest to ar
rive is G. W. Hawkes, of Cocoanut
Grove, in the southernmost part
of Florida, who came in yesterday
afternoon. Mr- Hawkes was a cal
ler at The Herald office this
morning and tells us he will report
the result of his investigation to a
large number of truck growers on
his return to Florida, and upon his j
report will depend whether or not
this section will receive favorable
consideration. The gentleman says
the principal crops in the portion
of the state from whence he comes,
are winter tomatoes and eggplants,
the shipments beginning about
Christinas, when other sections are
without these vegetables. The land
is principally sand, very poor and
requires fertilizing for evei crop,
the cost of this being about $45 per
acre annually. Even at this price
considerable money may be realiz
ed, the yield being in the neigh
borhood of $500 per acre. With
the rich lands here, no ' fertilizers
are necessai . and tne same, metn
ods used here as are applied in the
section from which Mr. Hawkes
comes, would result in greatly in
creased returns. The gentleman in
forms us frost comes sometimes even
in the southern part of Florida,
and its damage is counteracted by
the use of houses where additional
plants are kept, and put out when
frost injures the field crops. Tins
is a method which the truck peo
ple of this section would do well to
follow, as by its use the dangers of
frost or cold would lose most of its
terrors. Mr. Hawkes will spend to
day looking over this vicinity, and
The Herald hopes his report will
be favorable, and result in increas
ed immigation to this section. The
