Address, THE NEWS. FALaTKA. il.OE.lU A. PALATKA. FLA.. JAN. 37, 13S8. The Titasville Slur is in the field with an immigration fund which it starts with its own subscription of five dollar. Rev. P. PT Mell, Chancellor of the University of Gflorgia and formerly President of the Southern BaptUt A eociation, dieii yesterday. This U the worst winter New England has known for thirty-Hvo years. Florida has put up no fences to keep the New Eng landers out, not erea tha editor of the Boston Glolie. Considering what a cold winter this is up North and how high the price of coal has been the world will look leniently on the population of Bainbrnl-je, O., which has not had a single carload of coal billed to it alt winter because it was found, cheaper to tuke the coal without the usual formalities. Folks ruust have money for other necessaries. Man" can not live by coal alone. The formation of a committee of the Hoard of Trade to look aftvr stranjers arriving in Pitl.ii.ka who wish to learn something of our city and its vicinity is a wise move. The tir.it impression is often the most Listing one. If a person arrives here, a stranger, after several days absence from his own peojile, and receives no welcome, finds no one to take even a passing interest in him the feeling of destitution and homesickness which strikes him would obscure to him all the glories of our evergreen State. This would be a very marked effect on those unused to travel. It is to be hoped that this committee will be active and always ready. Its mission is an important one. arasia, heavenly kahv Among all the arts that have done so ranch to convert man from the savage dweller in the woods and caves to the enlightened citizen of the world aa we see him in the Nineteenth Century, mil- sic lias been tha most ioteiit. It is the first to engage the rude savage's atten tion, it is the earliest to claim the notice of the babe in civilized landd. Philoso phers can descant upon the sources of that pleasure we derive from painting, sculpture and architecture, but what it is that so enraptures the soul and leads the senses captive in harmony remains a mystery in spite of all theorizing. The interpreter of the emotions, as the other arts are chiefly jl the intellect, it is beyond the reach of analysis in its pri mary relations to tho human mind. The first of the arts in history it is the latest in development. The great mod ern masters of painting, sculpture and architecture had lived and died, leaving only generations of pupils and imitators to succeed them when the masters of harmony arose. Melody attracts the at tention and pleases the ear of the rudest but harmony taxes the attention ft all who have not given study to the science of combining tones or are not born with a phenomenal capacity for recognizing its beauties. The study of music, of pure music, amply rewards the student in the added value it gives to living and the in creased capacity to enjoyment. He or he wtjo has been content with what is called "popular" music has hardly per ceived the great domain of harmony which yields such important results to those who labor to enter therein. lalatka will have an opportunity to enjoy an evening of interpretation of these grand masters of harmony to-night through the agency of artists who have devoted themselves to studying the com positions which they have given to the world. We are glad to be able to say that nearly all the seats for this concert were taken long ago. It is -one feature about concerts that the seats farthest from the stage are most desirable and thus every seat U available for enjoy ment. The music written for the string and wood instruments can not be ade quately interpreted with tho piano. There is plenty of music of lighter char acter on the programme, which we print elsewhere, and nothing so abstruse aa to be entirely beyond the comprehension of those who have not given severe study to harmony. GEE WHIZ! Poor Florida, lifce the youngest and most handsome among a family of girls, must pay the penalty of her superior at tractiveness in detraction. This Cinder ella among the States has been maligned in every way, but the most absurd thing that has yet been said is thus mentioned in a letter received by a merchant of this city from a friend who recently left here for the North. The letter, which is dated Boston, January 31, says: Reached home Sunday night, at 8 p. m., to rind the thermometer 8J telow zero and Boston Harbor entirely frozen over. The Boston Globe of yester terday reported the tla rniometer at Jacksonville at 2" below zero on Sundav night. Have lookeil the capers all ova to-day, but lind nothing said about ex treme cold in Florida, ami sincerely hope the report is not true. This is absurd enough to take away one's breach. A temperature of two de grees below in Jacksonville would be more phenomenal than one of eighty de grees below in Boston. When once in llfty years the thermometer drops to the neighborhood of twenty degrees above, Fahrenheit, tha fruit and vegetable crops are ruined for that year. With the odor of sweet violets and rosea stealing through the balmy air, the oranges pre puring to bloom, the peaches and loijuuts on the trees already almost aa large as one's thumb it strikes the mind as the height of the absurd to hear that a Bos ton paper announces that we have just suffered a temperature of less than zero in this State. If the editor of the Globe will come to Florida he may have the privilege of gathering a fresh and juicy orange from the tree or of eating a dish of strawberries from the beds now blushing with the -glorious fruit." . grown in the open air. Oat of charity we will suppose that Jacksonville, Florida, is a misprint for Jacksonville, Illinois, a city which baa experienced a temperature far colder than two degrees below zero several times this winter. In Florida this has been a mild winter and even the banana is waving its long green leaves in the air to-day, above the wreck of last year's foliage. The roses in our gardens have never ceased to bloom in the last twelve months. It is hard to believe, that the managers of the BosSSct Globe, even sup posing that they were speculating in Cal ifornia property, would ever wfltingly give out such an absurd btatement as that the thermometer bad fallen two de grees below zero in a State where tender ro-ies Lave beea blooming the year round in the open gardens. The paper is not at hand containing thit remarkable statement but it is not likely that the writer of that letter made a mistake. The statement is one so startling tluit he was ture to read it over with great attention. Wiien icebergs get tangled up with the Equator and the inhabitants on the Amazons learn to use skates and io yachts on that noble system of rivers, when Polar bears dive for fish in the waters that wuh the shores of Cuba and the walrus disputes its prey with the alligator we may ex pect to see a tempt rature of two degrees below zero in r lorida. ABOUT WISE ' The Citrotjraph, a very handsome and fair minded journal published in Red- lands, CaL, gives this advice to Florida viniculturists: If the Florida viijneron will eo slow and make himself certain of the state of the market as he goes atonic, the wine c.od will undoultedly grow fo large pro portions, iiut we would like to see tne Florula putters that have the eood of their section at heart auvise the wine- makers not to put all their eggs into one basket. We doubt very much that the world will ever have an over supply of prre wines, but the American palate will need a deal of educating before perfectly pure, sound wine will be preferred to the carefully mixed decoctions ot the New .r.. t 7 i- . i : . o. s wuwiunkt'r, wiiuwduib viuejunin a four-story brick building. The Ameri can people, us a mass, are not hungering lor a pure, sound grape wine. What the Citrograph says is true in a large measure but our successful wine makers in Florida have had no trouble in disposing of their products at excel lent figures. Most American wine con sumers buy wine for the name orj the label not for the merits of the contents of the bottle. California and Florida have a missionary field to cultivate. When Americans learn not to be ashamed to buy wine because it is cheap or lias an American label the health of thousands of the citizens of this country will be improved. American wine which has been transported to France in the wood, bottled there and returned to this country with a French name on the label can always command a price w hich, without the lie upon it, it could never reach. Probably if American winemakers would combine into a "trust" and put a high ric6 on the products of their vine yards there would be more demand for American wines. COMO TO INCORPORATE. Mcating sn th; Subject st RMdt-Stipt Takts Toward Incorporation. Lorrtnntititr tit tin Pnlatka Xrw. Co mo, January 33. Two weeks agr, through The Palatk a Nkvvs, attention was called to the con dition of our roa Js, and it was suggested by your correspondent that a citizens' meeting should be held at Dusenberry & Ellis' store on January 24, to consider the matter and decide upon some method of improvement. In response to the call there gathered last (Tuesday) night at the appointed place nttirly every able bodied citizen of Coma Almost every household within the radius of a mile was represented. Mr. J. A. Manchester was chosen chair man and Mr. W. JS. Palmer secretary. Some figures, were then laid before the meeting to give a rough idea of the cost of such sawdust for cart root Is and lum ber for sidewalks as would be necessary. That amount bein'g larger than any we have ever yet raised by voluntary sub scription and as the difficulties and almost unavoidable unfairness of that means were fresh in the minds of all, a suggestion was made by Mr. C. T. Pot ttr that the matter of. incorporation be considered. Mr. II. J. Grim then em bodied the suggestion in a moAon to the effect that "this meeting is of the opinion that it is desirable that a legal corporation should be formed under the name of 'Comn.'" After some favorable discussion in wluch'Mr. M. E. Carter, Mr. C. T. Potts, Mr. D. E. Dusenberry, Mr. II. J. Grim and Mr. C. (!. Ellis took part, the motion was put and carried unanimously. A committee of five was then ap pointed to report upon the question as to what shall be tiie limits of said borough. This committee consists of the following: M. E. Carter, C. T. Potter, W. E. Palmer, Cliarles G. Eillis and G. E. Miller. A committee of two consisting of J. A. Manchester and D. E. Dusenberry were appointed to obtain the necessary legal advice from some qualified at torney. The meeting then adjourned subject to the call of the committee on boundaries. Tito. DAYTONA. Railroad Right of war-Tfcs Jsllat Cantlnjant. Oth tr htm. CtirrtiixmiUnr ot tha ftitatfci Awn. Daytosa, January 2ft. Judge J. N. Buckner and S. J. Fox. of St. Augustine and Daytona Railroad fame, were in town yesterday trying to secure a riicht of way for their road along Daytorta's river front. The in ducements offered was an eicelVnt sea wall to be erected thr full length of Beach street. As might Le supposed, there are many dissenters to this liberal proposition. It is one of the very few opportunities offered, and if not gen erally accepted it will be some time ere our citizens receive another such propo sition. A prominent citizen j-aid recently, in speaking of holidays and getting apart Cleveland's birthday for a day of rest, that the next personage whose birth would be celebrated on tha East Coast, was that of Hon. Charles Dougherty, for the reason that Mr. Dougherty was making a strong tit ort to secure the ap propriation of a half million to build Daytona a sea wall. Perhaps this ac counts for the property owners refusals to the proposed railroad. Among visitors from Joliet, IIL, an Mr. and Mrs. Judge Goodspeed, ICrs. E, I Stevens and son, Charles Goodspeed and H. J. Sawyer, most of whom are stopping at the Hotel Sanitarium. It may be worthy of mention that the Jol iet contingent here numbers thirty-four. while that of Ohio reaches one hundred and fifty, with the prospect of ho If that number of visitors from the same State before the season closes. Martin Griffin of your city, was in town yesterday. As real estate selling this year is quiet in this vicinity, boat selling has becomd popular. The latest deal being made be tween William Jackson and Tony Ca nova. The object being tiie Coquette. The Loriliards have returned to St. Augustine and are now stopping at the Ponce de Leon. Mrs. Edward Boyd,' of Cincinnati, reached here yesterday. She is a regular visitor to the coast. . Her hotel is the Palmetto. Oeiuli:n-e. RAISING SUGAR CANL A Taa iters Tract-Csst aal Prsiltt Is Tan Yaars Kiaaimmee Lnauer. Through a typographical error the Jacksonville Metropolis credits our planters with a profit of 4-jO per ton for cane, instead of $4.50. Ordinarily we should not correct so apparent an error, but in this case we have been asked if a ton of cane is worth $450 what must be the cost of production. Instead of answering the inquiry by letter we have thought that others might uesire infor mation on this subject and so have in terviewed a large nuiulier of planters who nave bad experience in raisinif cane, and give herewith the result of our inquiries. As might be expected the replies of the planters liave varied considerably, but we nave taken an aver age on all point except as to the yield of cane per acre and length of time it will rattoon. As regards tbe yield the replies ranged from thirty to sixty tons per acre. We have taken tne lo vest yield, preferring to tell half the truth rather than run the risk of over-stating it. The majority of planters we talked with avreed that cane would not need replanting under twelve or fifteen vears, some even asserted that with good cul tivation it would never run out. In our table we have thought best to allow for a replanting after six years, so as to be on the safe side. We have selected aver age reclaimed land which requires neithc clearing nor fertilizer, and present here- witn the figures to prove that sugar cane pays better than any crop raised ortn or v est.

Profits in ten years tlUU In the above table every item of ex pense is noted except interest on the investment and tne cost or fencing. These two items are so well known the world over that we have pur-oseiy omitted them as having no bearing as tar as information is concerned, r enc- ing can be built here as cheaply as anv where. The price given for cane is the rate with sugar at four to hve cents a pound. As the price of sugar increases the pvice or cane incretsws correspond ingly. The question mar verv oertinantlv be asked '"If raising sugar is such a sure ana prontabie business, why is it that the planters of this section have not engaged more extensively in its produc tion!" f..-.l . 1 L. .. I ..' J L-auau mere nas ueeii no market for it. It is the erection of a large suar mill at St. Cloud which b caused our planters to turn their atten tion to its cultivation. With their pres ent capacity the sugar mill can handle tne product of 1,500 acres of cane, but with slight cost for additional machin ery they can ahoat double their ca pacity. There need be no fear but there will be a market for all the cane that can be produced. When the capacity of the present mill is sunt. lied others will be erected; and we expect to live to see the day when at least a dozen sugar mills wm aot tbe fertile Kissimmee val ley from this place to Fort Bassinger. A WONDERFUL INVENTION. Tha DtalCaa Hair aai tha Djm Can Spaa. LaG range, Oa. Graphic. "J. C Chester and wife. Miss.," was on the register of the LaGrange Hotel Saturday. There is some remarkable things con nected with this couple that will, per haps interest some of our readers. Mr. Chester has only been married a week or two, and is now combining business with pleasure. He is on a bridal tour to Washington, where he goes to patent the most wonderful invention Jof the age. Mr. and Mrs. Chet.ter are deaf and dumb yet they can talk. He has invented an instrument by the use of which he is enabled to speakThis may sound strange to some people, and more especially to those who have not seen and heard him. Yet it is a fact. He has also an improved ear trumpet, which goes with the other instrument. This appartus is constructed something on the order of the telephone, being worked by electricity. The electricity is so arranges! that it does not reach tiie ear, being con fined to a little rneti.1 arrangement that is worn on the coat, resemblinga balpe. The instrument by which he is enabled to speak is his pet" invention, and he guard it closely, hence we are unable to describe it more than it is a small piece of steel filled with holes and ridges. The voice of a person using this in strument is not as soft and mellow as the voice of a girl of "sweet sixteen." but resembles more the "silvery voice" that arises from the back fence when the earth is bathed in the soft rays of the moon, and causes you to swear and then exercise your muscle by ejecting the bootjack and all the old shoes and other rubbish you can find front the room. But what cares a man who has l-en deprived of tbe power of speech, whether he can. by the use of this in strument, express his thoughts in soft and mellow tones, or in the tone of the Tom cat, he can rpeak and others can understand him. In inventing this thing, Mr. Chester has done something for which be will receive the blessing)- of thousands of unfortunates all over the land, and will stand as an everlasting monument to him, and cast a ray of sun shine over tbe lives of many that has been dark for years. He has already been offered fabulous sums for his invention, but to these he has turned a deaf ear. The couple left on tbe op train Sunday morning on their way to Washington. We wish him and his bride a pleasant and profitable jour ney. A Habit Hard to Core. LaGrn Graphic The habit some Georgia people have of being a candidate seems to be bard to cure.
