A grand fair is to be given by the ladies of St. Augustine in the old part of the Cathedral next Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings for the lenefit of the Cathedral fund. The fair will be under the direction of Mrs. Capt. Leo Vogel and the object is to restore the famous old landmark to its former glory as well as make additions .and add embellishments. A popular and original programme lias been arranged which will no doubt draw large crowds, and as the object is uch a worthy one will bring out num iberlesa shekels to the aid ot the old Cathedral fund. Among the things to le disjK)sed of is n handsome tea set, which will be voted to the most popular young lady, a silver headed cane to the most popular young man, and in this latter, married men are included, which is very liberal. On St. Valentines" day a post office will be established at the fancy table which will be presided over by the fol lowing charming young ladies: Misses Evaline Hernandez, Carrie Mickler and Fiorina Usina. The ice cream table will be presided over by Mrs. George Colee, Mrs. Louis Colee, Mrs. A. E. Ixpez, and Mrs. J. R. Benet. At the supjK-r table Mr. M. Ta cetti, Mrs. Walton, Mrs. Grvatorex and Mrs. W. M. Ingraham will preside. The flower stand will be attended by the M sses Evaline Hernandez, Carrie Mick ler and Fiorina Usina. The Misses ltosa and Angelina Masters will preside at the variety table. Mrs. Genovar, Mrs. CajK), Mrs. Pacetti, and Mrs. Benet, will dispense the sweets of the cake stand. There is sure to be a large attendance and it is hoped they will all feel very liberal toward the object and give it a hearty support. The young men, of course, will dispose of their years savings in the shortest possible order, as it will be impossible to resiHt the bright smiles of the charming lasses anil their persuasive arguments to sell will find willing buyers.

It will pay to make him a call and ask to s-e them. Eeal Estate Review. Either the weather is too delightfully enervating or tourists are waiting like wuKins Ahcawber for "something turn up" in the way of speciiil bargains, certain it is that but little realty has iiituigeu nands during the week just passeu. iusj, are nit,i,jing quite voraciously as it were and agents are puii uoing me affable and wonderin wuen ine clouds will roll by and sales amount to something immense or at least satisfactory. Mr. Ilobkins reports a sale of a lot in New Augustine to Mr. Hopkins beyond this Uenonents saith not several offers have Un niado for goou pmperiM ana negotiations ar 2rwlittv U'htcli mill? ' , . .voun inmanvim The Saint The Tourists' Opinion of the Ancient City. Among the entries in the tourists' reg istry at the Museum, favorable and otherwise, are the following. By far the largest number of entries this week are from guests, J"f the Ponce de Leon: "There isdy one St. Augustine and only one Flagler." , "A grand old city, and sure to grow.' "The mother looked pole and her face was sad- There seemed to be nothing to make her liut she silently sat with tears in her eye. Anxious to get away from Floradi." "A delightful place to rest." "Much pleased with place and peo le." "Worthy of its fame." "St. Augustine the brightest place on earth." "Historically interesting and roman tic." "Everybody should see St. Augustine, and no one should miss seeing the Mu seum." "Once visitingi&t. Augustine leaves a desire to come again." Florida is just entering the era of de- elopment. St. Angustine in 1900 will astonish the natives. Such a valuable collection of varieties as the museum contains deserves a more certainly safe repository." A good place to spend the cold months, but if you bad once seen Mount Airy, Ga., in the spring time you would find Florida no comparison." "The place for pretty girls." "St. Augustine the most noted city in Florida." Disgusted with St. Augustine's streets and much pleased w ith everything else." "Awe inspiring." "A land of varied sweet perfumes. Of singing- birds and perpetual blooms." "St Augustine is the most interesting place I have seen in the State." Much to please and interest, climate good, further- than this deponent saith not too cold." 'Have been here nearly a month and am daily discovering new objects of in terest, also much pleased with the climate and people." "Came here to get warm and caught cold." "All climate, sand, and climate." "Florida, a continent in itself, full of interest." "Think the museum is splendid." "Don't think much of the country." "The city is very romantic." "Good place for a fat pocketbook." "Don't ask me, can't lie." "Climate good, have not tried the grub." "Hurrah for Georgia." "Quaint, surprising, delightful." "A poetical link between the past, and present. "Lung test in njicrometer 350 pouwls." "Weight 216, lung test 296, and a powerful St. Augustine appetite. Tins is glorious." "A little of it goes a great way." "A day of sunshine and gladness." "Interesting place because of its anti quity." 'Be sure to try the lung tester. "St. Augustine is like a glorious sun set." The museum represents a life work to gather up." "A good ilace for sick people, and sure to grow as a winter resort," Soil worth fifteen cents an acre, climate worth $1,000." PERSONAL, Mr. W. B. Esson, of Nova Scotia, is registered at the Florida House. Mr. F. A. Shute and wife, of Philadel phia, are located at the Magnolia. Dr. and Mrs. S. A. M. Guian, of Phila delphia, are located at the Magnolia. Mr. Paul II. Barnes and wife, of Philadelphia, are stopping at the Mag nol a. Mr. Paul H. Bate and wife, of New York, are registered at the Florida House. Mr. S. P. Read, President of the Mem phis National Bank, is a guest of the Magnolia. Mr. A. G. Van Nostrand, of the Van Nostrand Brewery of Boston, is at the San Marco. Mr. T. Newlaad and wife, of Taunton, Mass., have a suite of apartments at the Magnolia for the season. Mr. Morris rhilips, owner of the New York Home Journal, is at the Casa Monica with his family. At the Casa Monica are Hon. Gordon Smith, of England, and Messrs. Theo and Howard Cramp the well known Philadelphians. Capt. J. A. Post, of the Post Independ ent Daylight line, of St. Johns River steamers, was registered at the Mag nolia yesterday. Hon. T. B. Pardee and family, of Can ada, have a suite of rooms at the San Marco. Mr. Pardee is Minister of the Crown Lands of Canada. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. The Randell Opera Company made the Magnolia their headquarters. The managers of the San Marco say that the business at this hotel is thirty three per cent, better than last year at this time. Mr. J. W. Estes, of the firm of lirown ct Estes, is laying a concrete pavement in front of and around his residence, on Marine street. The handsome golden badge with jet letters "Chief of Police, Hotel Ponce de Leon," that Capt. Archer is sportin, now, is very ornamental and will be a terror to evil doers. The spirit of improvement has taken hold of the city, and with the building of the old market, the Cathedral and other public and private edifices the city continues on its onward march. At the close of each lecture given by Prof. Tripp in the Y. M. C A. parlors on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday even ings one of the national songs of France or Germany will be sung by some of our local vocalists. The sliootmg scrape iTiday nignt in which one of the hotel waiters of the Ponce got slightly wounded, is being in vestigated in Judge Mc Williams' Court and a full report will be given in our next issue. The rendition of the Princess of Trebi- zonde by Miss Adelaide Randall was erected by a very fair house notwith- Augusts WHOLESALE GROCERIES, O. B. SMITH. CHA3. E. W.

Miss Randall's voice is superb and her acting elicited round after round of ap plause. At the ball, with his corps of twenty well disciplined and trusty men, he was ever ready to render assistance if occa sion had required, but everything was so perfectly planned that not the slight est jar occurred to mar the pleasure of the occasion His Honor did not do a very rushing business in his court yesterday. There ere only'two cases one for repairing building within the fire limit, Mr. J. W. Stewart was fined $10 and costs. Frank Bagley, for using abusive language, was fined $3 and costs. The firm of White, Howard & Co., fashionable dressmakers of New York, will eccuiiy one of the large corner stores of the Alcazar. This firm is one of the largest in the United States. They have stores in New York, Washington, Saratoga and Newport. In our account of the Ponce de Leon ball we regret that mention of Caitain leorge R. Archer was accidently omitted. Among the efficient aids at the hotel. Manager Seavey has none more promi nent or more justly entitled to kindly regard than Captain Archer. The depth in the channels in St. George, Hypolita and other streets of our Venetian city are improving every rain and we hope by the return of another season to have a more conven ient landing of merchandise from schooners at the doors of our stores. New Invention. Mr. L. H. White, whose rose gardens the suburbs of this city attract so much attention is something of a genius. Beside inventing the blacking box in hich Bixby's best is sold he has just taken out letters on a many floored car for use in shipping poultry and small animals. If used for horses and cattle the floors can be lowered so that they can be made comfortable. '; It is made so that by the use of a crank one man can easily manipulate it.

While dealings were less than seen in many months, Chicago had selling orders in Gran gers, but no other Interests seemed to have any interest in the market whatever, though the pools had placed some supporting order In the cialtles, a lack of support, however was noticeable, and the bears were encour aged to put out a few limited short lines, which gave transactions a sagging tendency, but out side of Manhattan, which dec-lined Y per cent and afterward regained the loss, and Milwau kee, Lake Shore and Western preferred, which declined ier cent, on very limited biiMiness, there was no feature whatever.

General Markets Chicaoo, February 11. The condition of things to-lay tm 't.'lianire shtiwed mre clearly than ever the alisence of outside ousiness and he overshadowing iiitlucncc of Hutchison. He had brokers in the wheat and corn iits, and established pric at which he would either buy or sell all the crowd desired. The week loseil with prices on the whole lower and the market duller ttian seven days ayo. Cotuimrcd wiih last Sat unlay, the price of May wheat was nis moinuig iu cent lower, corn i-4 ana oats 1 lower. There was plentv of gossiping but little trading in wheat to-day. May ociiod cent hisrher, moved up to hlMi during the first hour, and kept between that figure and N'-x doling the balance of the session, closing finally at Sit. The firmness was largely due to scalers, who were eveuiug up their trades for the week. The true account of operations in corn to day consists in saying that Hutchison was ready to buy any amount at 51$ ami ready to sell any amount at MV't-r,l')s- These figures, therefore, formed the range of prices. There as no one who cared to venture outside- or the pegs, and business was narrow and light, in which only a few took part. May oieiied at and sold as stated between that figure and o1h, and cl.isod at a!4. 1 he Interest in oats was better thun m corn. as they were not pegged. May sold at 31V and 31 -H. closing at 31V Speculation in provisions was on a reduced scale and almost entirely local, there being little in daily variations to induce outsiders to send in fresh orders to either buy or sell. The arrivals of hogs were up to expectations and prices were maintained, recking in t hlcago since November 1st, 1,552,000 hogs, a decreaaeof 31,000 hogs from the same date last year. l4rd ranged at f ..NJ(ii,.Ns and closed at S..SU, decline of 21- from yesterday.

A recent "number of the Fort Myers Preas contained the following article, in which Dr. William Hanson, manager of the South Fl.-rida Tropical Fruit Com pany, of England, embodied his expe rience here: The south bank of the Caloc8ahatcb.ee River is the natural home of these two fruits. They grow here to perfection. The habit of the pine apple is to fruit whenever the plant attains a certain size. I will do this when propagated from the "slips" or small shoots, which spring from the fruit stem just at the base of the pine apple in two Tears time if planted oat not later than the middle of September, and subsequently culti vated and fertilized, otherwise it will grow slowly and take another year to at tain iu proper size iot bearing iruit. The question of time of fruiting after Betting out depends mainly upon the management and skill of the planter, although the percentage of plants which ran over untu tne tnira year will be in creased or lessened bv the character of the first winter after settina- out. If this be an unusually severe or protracted one, it retards the growth of the young loins, anu vive versa 11, However, the foregoing points have been kept in mind by the planter, he way safelv count upon not less that fifty per "cent, "of his plants bringing him pine apples in th month of June, July and August of the second year alter they wer planted, and in the third year mot of those which did not fruit the second year will bear apples, while the niajoritv of those plants which bore fruit the second vear will yield two p.nc appies tne tnira year, as this plant semis out from its roots, from .uia tn three laree suckers, each f whM ;n bear a pine apple in twelve months time from its first appearance. ine plants should lie allowed plenty of room, lo crowd 12,000, or even 50.000, into the space of an acre, as is the prac tice in the Bahamas, is a mistake, which here on the main land of Florida we have no excuse for imitating now that we have learned better. By setting the slips two feet apart, in rows four feet distant from each other, which allows, in round numbers, 5,000 to the acre, not only can the ground be fertilized and run over frequently with an "Acme narrow (wincn is about ail the cultiva tion the rune annlo nenlsl far mn cheaply, rapidly and thoroughly than it can possibly be tilled when they are planted as in the Bahamas; but the size of the fruit is very much larger, and the proiiurion 01 plants winch are tartly in fruiting, is reduced to the minimum Kitit. The fertilization consist in the drillinr In between the rows of cotton seed meal in the spring of the year, in the propor tion of one ton to the acre. This should not lie done after the first time, however until the plants have egun to blossom, or they may e started growing so vigor ously that they will have no time to think of fruiting. There is no reason why young- lemon trees thou Id not be planted out every twenty feet, among the pineapples, setting the pine apple siipsa little less than two feet apart in those particular rows so as to leave a space of four feet for each lemon tree. The same cultiva tion and fertilization will then serve for both and in after years, when the lemons need more space, some or the nearest pines can be removed from their immediate vicinity. It so hapjiensfortunately, that tie pine apple and lemon both "thrive here in precisely the same kind of land. The best markets for the pine apple and lemons grown here will, iu all prob ability, be Liverpool and New Orleans respectively, to both of which points we have cheap and convenient means of transjiortEtion by water from the wharves of Fort Myers. As a matter of fact, a barrel of live dozen pineapples can be laid down in Liverpool for :$:2.20, in from fourteen to seventeen days from Fort Myeri, via Key West and New York, and a schooner can be chartered Tor Sf .HK) to carry 2.000 boxes of lemons from Fort Mers to New Orleans ten cents per case! Now the pineapple sells for very much better prices at wholesale, in England than it does in the United States, and, moreover, by cable advice of each shipment from New York the fruit can all be placed liefoia its arrival, whereby delay is obviattd, which in the case of a perishable fruit is a matter of importance. Pine apples will certainly yield a net return of ten cents each on the average, when so ao'd in England. The liSl.it of the lemon tree in this favored climate, is to mature its fruit during the summer months, and early in fall. In other words, at a time when the wholesale price of lemons in New York ranges from $4 to f 7 per case of 3t!0. Now, at the age of five years from the time of budding, our lemon trees on the t'aloosa hate hie, are wor.t to bear a crop of 500 lemons, and at ten yearn, 5,000 is about the number they yield. From which it is clear that a return of $-500 per acre from a five y ar old lemon grove 100 trees to the acre, at twenty teet apart is well inside the6um which the planter may expect to realize. Then the pine apple should, in the second year, yield a cutting of 2,500 to the acre, and four times thiit number of slips, which are readily saleable at one cent each. Say, at ten cents net $250 worth of slips Total, $350. In the third year this will be doubled $700 Making f 1,050 for the two years. After the third year, although the grove will continue to yield an increasing number of pine apples, yet, inasmuch as some of the plants will have to be withdrawn from around the lemons trees, and, in course of years, the price of pine slips will probably decline, as the country becomes stocked with them, it will not be safe to compute the income at much over $700 per annum. The cost of cul tivating a mixed lemon and pine apple plantation, including fertilizers, I find to be $50 per acre, per annum. and reliable Medicines are the best to depend upon.

Mrs. Dow had been for some time a small holder of stock in the Dover City Railway and had p enty of money to buy more when it became advantageous to do so. Learning that a Boston syn dicate, as a matter of investment, was trying to buy up a majority of the stock she concluded that if the foreigners could alTord to buy control of the road she and other residents of Dover, with property interests at stake, ecu Id better afford to keep it in their own hands, so 6he outbid the Boston people and herself obtained a controlling interest.
