OCALA, FLA., FBI DAY, MARCH 9, 1M)1 A BIG PHOSFHATE IINJ. j South Caroiiuiaus and Tenreseean? Get in on the Ground Floor. Phosphate is a common find in j many counties of Florida, notably in Marion aud Citrus, even in the beds j of sttearns, but why, it w*as left lo \ Bouth C irolinians and Tennessee pen- i pie anti not home folks lo make Ihe discovery that the bottom .of Tsala Apopka lake, at Inverness, in Citrus county, was a splib bed of phoppha*e, I twenty miles iu exteut and averaging 93 per cent, is one of those th.ugs past; finding out uud all the same the great discovery is made and iu connection ; with securing mining privileges from the state and securing a $3 ,tt‘K) option : on the Ofauge Cuud & Transit Co’s canal and lands. This canal is dug j from Pauasoffkee lake to Floral City I and with a little more dredging it can j be extended t- i’sala Apopka lake. > v this canal the miners can reach ; half a dozen pours ou t e aae j touched by the Bouth Florida H. It., or create a competing point via the F.A P. line. Parties who kindly furnished the Binner reporter this item of news, says the Coosaw Phosphate Company, of Charhstou, stand ready to suppF half a dozen dredges to do the work needed iu m.kittg water transporta tion to thisaipious bed of iuexhausta hie phosphate. Another report afloit is to the effect that the owneis of the Orange Canal & Transit t’o., consisting of Bheriff J. C. Priest, Win. Brooks, K. H. Baker and I)r. U. L. Davis, of Inverness and Flora I City, Senator A. 8. Maun, of Jacksonville, and Dr. It. H. Snowden and C. M. Brown, >f Ocala, were caught napping ill this phosphate find and < euy that they gave au op tion ou the property named. Those in tlie phosphate business say that tiie cost of mining the hard rock phosphate in Ihe lake will lie nominal and return a big profit lo the miners, j The find has caused a great sensation , iu the phosphate world.
