Address, THE NEWS, PALATKA. FLORIDA. PALATKA. FLA.. FEB. 5, 1888. That bright little offspring of New "York's great daily, the Evening World, lias reached a circulation of 150,000. It will be pushing ita parent hard, pretty fioon, in the matter of circulation. Two Pullman Parlor cars left Hart ford, last night, with forty-one capital ists and business men on board bound for a tour of observation through the 8outh. They will probably Tisit Florida before their return. "Artistic Modern Houses of Low Cost" is the litle of a publication by the Co operative Building Plan Association, of 63 Broadway, N. Y. Perspective views and fall plans of twenty-nine dwelling houses of moderate cost are given with letter press description. It is bound in paper. , . . Francis Palms of Detroit left his estate w orth $7,000,000 to his possible grand children, his two children, Francis F. and Clotilde to enjoy life interests in the estate, the income to be divided share and share alike. Miss Palms contested the will but the Michigan Supreme Court lias decided that the will is a valid one. Miss Palms will be remembered by Floridians as the object of Senator Jones's unfortunate infatuation. The surplus on hand in the Treasury on January 31 was $85,000,000. With the present rate of growth it will be $100,000,000 at the end of this month. This one hundred million of dollars lying i lie in the National Treasury will re ceive daily increments until Congress reduces the tariff or wipes out the excise laws. The good sense of the country condemns any proposition to remove the whibky and beer taxes. But it is only a question of time when there will be little money left in the country to do Jiusiness with if something is not done. The little 'fire-bug" who set fire twice to the Hospital for the' Ruptured and ( Irippled at New York has confessed to the commission of six other crimes of that nature. Her last attempt resulted j a the death of one of the servants. May Wilson, the prisoner who confesses these i rimea, is a child of eleven years, pretty und innocent looking. She started an other fire while the asylum disaster was Ixsing investigated. Even after her ar icst she seemed but little disconcerted j'jid slept as sweetly behind the iron bars us though in the institution which had theltered her for three years. She can . i,ive no reasons for her incendiary at tempts, but says she does not know why bhe did so. In Florida we are engaged in some localities in leading off the surplus waters. In California they are making artificial lakes and water courses. The j.Teat Merced canal twenty-seven miles Jong which leads the waters of the Mer ited River to the center of San Joaquin Valley, was opened last Thursday. The canal is 100 feet wide at the top, seventy ieet at the bottom and ten feet deep the untire distance. The territory it will ir rigate is estimated at 300,000 acres, and much of it is a desert but it is expected to yield enormously when it is irrigated. An artificial lake a mile square, which has Jeen named Lake Yosemite, occupies the nter of the San Joaquin Valley. One of the tunnels made for the aqueduct ihrough the hills is 4,400 feet long. At ihe present inflated prices of California J and such enterprises pay, but it appears that the work was undertaken by two J 'ami lies who are wealthy wheat growers mil it is presumable that their object is lo raise that cereal by the aid of irriga tion. , AN0THEE PE0B ABLE ROUTE. It is not in the natural course of busi ness events that one corporation or sys tem of transportation should be allowed to monopolize the great and growing traffic between the South and the East That the Pennsylvania Railroad com- )any is reaching for the Southern and rJouthwestern business has been rumored l'or some time and these rumors come jnore frequently now. The most prob. able objective point is Macon which it uan reach through the Macon and Cov ington road when that road is com pleted. Here it will connect with the Georgia Southern and Florida Jiow ' pushing Southward. This will give it an independent line to the Florida peninsula, with Palatka as the Southern terminus, a line free from dic tation by the Plant system. From Macon Ty other lines now building or proposed the Pennsylvania Company will be able to tap the Mississippi River traffic at Memphis and the way to a new all rail Toute from New York to Texas and the Pacific w ill be open. The Atlanta Con stitution says: During this year the Georgia, Carolina und Northern will reach Georgia, and may be finished to Atlanta; if not this year, certainly next. The Macon and Covington will connect with it at Athens, wnd will reach southward to Florida, thus completing a system which, with the Pennsylvania connections, would ex tend from" Florida to all parts of the middle States. Such a system would not stop with this, but would of course look to Texas and the West. This ex tension must be made from Atlanta through New Orleans, and it is only a question of time. The time is probably not far distant when Florida's products can be put on the cars at Palatka and sent to Phila delphia and New York by way of Macon in refrigerator cars, arriving there safe and fresh. The immigrant or tourist from the East or the West will have his choice of an all rail route to Jacksonville r Palatka, and save considerable time on his way to South Florida, the East Coast or the Gulf Coast by choosing the Palatka route.

Our Vtjttasls and Flower Garden A Medieval Priat iresture. BY bit. A. BCHAKFtlAMtK. PALATKA, i'LA. ivra. While in the North and Northwest people have to suffer from blizzards, snow storms and frost, and while the eld ice king rules there, and draws with his iron hand flowers and arabesques in fan tastic forms on all the window .panels, we in the sunny South shall meet no such artistic sketching, but may njoy the most delightful weather, . the re- j freshing and reviving natural beauty of Flora's most loveliest children. For a j look at our flower gardens and groves will contradict at once the false reports published, in some of the Northern pa pers, because the" thermometer never went down below, but shows 60 or 70 above zero. Cranks and fools are only fit for such infernal work, and every visitor from the- North has nothing else to confirm than the truth, namely, that Florida is and will be the "Land of Flowers;'" that our climate is unrivaled in the Union, and that Tampa and its vicinity is perfectly free from yellow fever, and that wherever fever should be in existence, it may be found only in the head of that man who has forgotten all. even to blush, at his senseless com munication. Let us not dwell any longer at this sad experience, for we Floridians are accustomed to such mis representations, but let us turn our eyes to a more interesting subject, to the Rose, the queen of the flowers, to its use and its meaning in history. KOSA THE ROSE, belongs to the natural order of the lto- sacese, sub-order II. Rosaceae, tribe III. Rose. In the flora of the United States of North America, the following wild growing species are to be found, namely; Rosa setigera, Michx the climbing or prairie rose; Rosa Carolina, Lin., the swamp rose; Rosa lucida, Ehrh the dwarf wild rose; Rosa blanda, Ait. the early white rose; Rosa rubigi nosa, Lin. the true sweet briar or e la tine; Rosa micrantha. Smith the small flowered sweet briar, aad Rosa laevig ata, Michx the Cherokee rose. The roses have a calyx with five folia cious segments, which alternate with five petals, its perigynous stamens are numerous and their filaments free, bear ing anthers with two cells: ail these or gans are inserted upon the upper edge of an oval or an oval or spherical recepta cle. At the bottom a large number of free carpels stand erect, each forms an unilocular ovary with a single anutro pal ovule and elongated style, sur mounted by an obtuse stigma. When ripe these pistils become achenes, which are enveloped by the now fleshy recepta cle, the seeds enclose a straight embryo, destitute of albumen. Roses are often supplied with prickles and spines, they have alternata leaves, with stipules ad nata to the petiole, and beautiful termi nal flowers, either solitary or in clusters, which have a sweet ami unequaled odor. Throughout the north of Europe the wild roses are single, in warmer climes usually double, and it is a curious fact that though so widely spread, the wild rose has not yet leen found either in Australia or South America. The spe cies and varieties, most of them pro- duced by hybridation by the horticultu rists, amount to over five thousand, and as ornamental plants they stand unriv aled in public favor, and are known and have been an object of esteem in all civilized nacions, for in Greece the rose went by the name of "rhodon;" the Ro mans, Italians and Spaniards call it "rosa;" the Germans and French "rose;" the Portuguese "roseira;" the Poles and Servians "roza;" the Bohemians "ruze;" the Tartars "gul;" the Kirkisians "tock me:" the Tungisians "movara:" the Kor jackens, "Pitchkutschan," the Kamsha dales, "Kehudi" and the Japanese "foo soon." The genus rose is in a state of great confusion, produced especially by a good many of the gardeners who have no knowledge of horticultu re. Nature ap pears scarcely to have placed any limit between the different species of the rose, and it is slready very difficult to define the wild species, which have not yet been modified by culture, it is almost impos sible to refer to their original type the numerous varieties which culture has made in the flowers of species already so nearly resembling each other. The rose has been classified by botanists in dif ferent tribes: Feroces Deciduous low ousues, na tives of Caucasus and Kamtschatka. Braoieatse Evergreen or sub-evergreen bushes natives of China, and Nepal. Cinamomea? Deciduous rambling bushes natives of Continental Europe and North America. Pimpinellifolre-Formingbushes partly low and dense ami partly large and rambling, natives of Europe, Asia and North America. Centifolia Deciduous bushes, gener ally erect, natives of Syria, Caucasus and Middle of Europe. Villosaj Deciduous shrubs, mostly with. erect branches, natives of Britain and Middle Europe. Rubiginoste Includes all of the eg- latine or sweet briar, natives of Europe, Caucasus and North America. Canime Chiefly bushes, but partly sarmentose and procumbent, natives of Europe and Asia. Systyl; A deciduous evergreen or sub-evergreen and mostly climbing na tives of Europe, Asia, Africa and North America. Banksiause Rambling shrubs, decid uous or sub-evergreen, natives of China. Florists however, have adopted in their catalogues the following classifica tion of roses namely: Banksia, Bour bon, Climbing, Monthly, Moss, Noisette, Perpetual, Remontant, Tea, Hybrid Tea, Polyantha, etc. All the species of the genus Rosa may be propagated by cuttings, by layers, or-by budding or grafting, and they will all thrive in a loamy soil dry and rich, rather than poor. It will not be cut of the way to draw tlie attention ot my readers to the Florida Rose Farm on Palatka Heights. The proprietor of said farm, our enter prising fellow-citizen Mr. T.' has spared neither time nor pains to show what an industrious man can raise even on our sandy soil. Looking over the . rose farm we will count nearly four hun dred varieties of roses. Among them we noted: Abel Carriere, Adam, Agrippina, Aimee Vibert, Alfred Colomb, Aline Sisley, Anne de Diesbach, Baron de Bon- THB V DAILY NE WSPALtATKA , FLORIDA.

The Tariff Question In Congress Whe Will Take Riddleberger's Place? CorrtxmhtUm of the falatka New. Washington, D. C, February 1. The tariff question continues the great bone of contention, and it would seem to the casual observer that it had been gnawed clean, but such is not a fact. It is as meaty and jui -y as ever, and bids fair to furnish food for a long and bitter fight. When the tocsin is sounded the bold, brave leaders ot the numerous fac tions witl be found in the arena ready and eager for the fray. What will be the outcome? No man can prophesy it, although each and every one you meet is willing to venture an assertion. Will a tariff bill, framed on a strict construction of the President's message, b presented by the majority of the Ways and Means Committee? There is no doubt in the world that it will be done. Will the Republican members of the same committee bring in a high tar iff bill? Any other procedure ou their part would be regarded as good cause for reading them entirely out of the ranks of Republicanism. Will Sam Randall interpose any objec tion to a low tariff measure? Yes, if it strikes at any of his pet schemes, as for instance the sugar tariff. And he will noi be alone in this matter, for Ijagan, Gay, Wilkinson and Robertson, of IiOU isiana, are all opposed to any reduction of that tariff, and will use every exer tion to defeat the same. In this they will not have the sympathy of the Re publican side, and will find Jordan a hard road to travel. It is currently reported that the bill, which is to lie introduced at an early day, will call for a 20 per cent, reduction on sugar, and the placing of wool on the free list. Take all these matters into considera tion, liearin well in m nd the numerous conflicting elements, and you, reader, can clearly see that when Greek meets Greek the tariff question will be handled witliout gloves. we ne'er shall, SEE his LIKE AGAIN. What will become of the United States Senate when the time arrives for the departure of our own Riddleberger from its marbled walls? Who will pose for the amusement of the crowded gal leries whan that sad hour comes to hand? Riddleberger performed again to-day much to the merriment of those in the hall. Yesterday he had introduced a resolution to consider the treaty between this country and Great Britain in open session. What the general sentiment among Senators is, regarding this move, I am not competent to say. The Re ad juster Senator called for the regular order and Mr. Call proceeded to score the Florida Railway and Navigation Company m an exceedingly interesting manner. Concluding after 2 o'clock the regular order of business was the Blair Educational bill, but Riddleberger wanted the Senate to hear from him on his resolution and asked leave to bebeard The chair ruled otherwise and an appeal was taken to the Senate, wlnVh resulted in upholding the chair, only Riddle berger voting in the negative. Finding it out of the que ition to dispose of his spare gas he took his seat in anything but an amiable frame of mind, and tried to console himself by nervously, if not angrily, piling the large amount of data he had gathered to fortify him in his io- sition on the floor at the side of his desk. It was a very funny scene to the spectators and highly relished. Only yesterday Riddleberger who is not a Prohobitionist and not averse to looking upon the wine when it is red, presented a bill drawn by Senator In galls for prohibition in the District of Columbia, and made the statement that he did not propose to say that he intro duced it by request for that teas what he had promised not to do. He has often performed for the Senate and the question again recurs, who will take his place when he leaves the legis lative halls to renew his fight upon the little giant Mahone in the Old Domin- on?
