The quiot ainijile and altogothor digni fiexl reception of Preaidout Cleveland by tlie city ofliciabt and the oflicers of the Board of Trade waa strictly in accord ance with the distinct ai'd oft related requests of Mr. Cleveland, that hia visit to St. Augnat'ne bo considorwl a leiiig made entirely in an unofliciul capacity, and not as tho President of tho United SUiUs. ' 11 is manifest dosiro was to avoid all ceremony, and seek in the few hours as signed to St. Augustine, a brief respite from the fatigue of his Jacksonville ex rience. That his host, Mr. Flagler, should have desired earnestly and sought diligently to have the arrangements so made as to mett the wishes of the Presi dent was hut natural. Notwithstanding his knowledge ot the President's desires, Mr. Flagler undertook to personally ac quaint him with the earnest wishes of the people to jay him some attention and visited Jacksonville for that purpose, returning with the party to St. Augustine. It ia fair to presume that Mr. Flagler carried out the purpose of the visit and it is equally fair to assume that the President meant no offense to our people in so often and so persistently expressing his desire for a gotxl quiet time here. There seems no doubt that the President was pleased with the simple character of his reception, and certainly the ladies of the party were irlad to bo ieruiitted even bo short a neason of rest before undergoing the fatigue of the public reception and the night ride and midnight transfer at Pa- latka. The several committees are entitled to great credit for the perfection of the ar rangements and their successful execu tion, anil there should lie no feeling hut one of entire satisfaction on all sides at the general result. fc . The Senatorial Party. The Senatorial prty, including Sena tors Call, Faulkner, Daniel, Pugh, George, Payne, Reagan, Jones and Stew art, arrived during the afternoon and were quartered at the Magnolia and San Marco.

Strange Fruit. Orlando Reporter. The surface of the southern portion of j Florida may be said to consist of lakes, rolling piney woods and flat woods, with an occasional interspersion of swamps and hammock hind. In Orange County these characteristics are pretty evenly lialanced, but as the traveler goes south ward lie sees tewer hills, until the land- ! scape settles down- into ope vast, un- i broken stretch of flatwoods. ending in the greatest marsh in the world the fverglaues. Much of this level main is taken ill witn cypress svvamiis, winch wind about and. blanch otT like walls of irrev and green, out me greater part ol it is sus- ceptiblo of cultivation with a little drain age. A man who has spent two-thirds ot a long life here, says the flatwoods of South Florida will j et be more eagerly sought alter bv vegetable growers than even the much vaunted hammock land. It is certain that where this sort of land has been proiwxly put in cultivation some fine crops have been raised. liie cattle men know the value of the flatwoods and are careful to keeo their cows and calves there as long ns iiossi- lile. If kept loo long on the hiuh lands the cattle are allecteU with what is known as sait sickness, and the calves rarely recover uuless siieedily taken down into the grassy flatwoods. In the roiling lulls they suiter with hollow-horn :md a sort of necrosis of the bones of the tail, which sometimes causes them to lose that useful member altogether. Some of the cowlys attribute these curious diseases to flie fact that cattle eat the poisonous mushrooms found on thfi high lands particularly one peeu ligf iy nauseating variety known by the classic and suggestive name of ''buz zard s bill." This is a sort of truflio. which sprouts four thin red prongs. joined together at the top, which speed ily decays, emitting an odor almost too terrible for description. It is hardly credible that a decent cow would think of using such a thing for food. In my last letter, 1 referred to a prac tice, common among the cattle of South t lorida, of burning off the woods in the early spring, in order to provide fresh pasturage for their stock. It is in the flatwoods that these tires rage the most f requently and with the greatest violence on account of the large amount of wire grass to be found there. I think as the country becomes more thickly settled the cattle ranges will move southward. and the necessity beinjj removed, forest tires will become of rare occurrence. There are few, if any, Crackers who set the woods afire "just to see it burn;" it i.4 done for the benefit of their stock. which often represents nine-tenths of their belongings. Still it is to be hoped that the decreasing area of wild range will cause them to spate tho woods, and transfer tlwir operations to more thinly settled districts. The South Florida flatwoods have also been a fine hog ranee, and many a gaunt, sharp-noted razor-back may le seen bobbing and tugging at the buds of the palmetto in the more thinly settled lowlands. In the dampest places they feed on wampee and paint-root, and at tain a moderate degree of fatness from eating the acorns which grow on a dwarf species of oak about a foot in height Various root and berries contribute to the support of these piney woods root ers, -find there is a species of nettle, hav ing a mealy, sweetish sort of root, for which the rooter will sometimes din for as dee) down as two feet. These hogs are turned out in the nutwoods for their living directly after they are weaned, aim no more is thought ot them until a mess of pork is wanted. Then they are driven iuto a pen, fed a week or two on corn and potatoes to "harden their flesh," and then led to the slaughter. 1 he berries of the saw palmetto also form a staple article of diet for the Flor ida hog, and it is claimed that their use renders the meat uncommonly rich fla vored. Hut hogs are not the only animals that like the palmetto Iterries. In the im mense stretches of flatwoods in the lower Kissimmee valley the berries grow to an unusual size, being about as large as dates, full of savory sweetness, and are eaten with great relish by the old hunters and cattle rangers. It is a truit that one can scarcely en dure at first on account of its strong musky flavor, but after the first dislike is overcome, an appetite is formed for it which amounts to a Positive craving with some people. A young Cracker remarked to me the other day that he would rather have a quart of saw jal n etto berries than a dozen of the finest peaches. The best palmetto berries are to be found in the region of Lake Okee choliee, according to Jimmie Yates. lie says there they grow to be considerably over an inch long, and so full of sweet ness that a drop of thick honey exudes and hangs from the under side of the lerry when it is thoroughly ripe. This saw palmetto, which exists in untold quantities all over the South Florida flatwoods, has always been con sidered a terrible nuisance by the home steader, as land covered by it is very difficult to clear, every trunk being firmly nailed to the ground by long, wiry roots which succumb only to the ai and grubbing noe. Some of the trunks are six inches in diameter and ten feet long, and may have been crow ing a thousand years for aught I know, as they die off liehind and grow on be fore. In this way 1 have no doubt wit some of them have traveled many miles from where they hrst started. When burned these trunks yield ashes that is a superb fertilizer, although it must be earelully applied, on - account of the large amount of salt it contains. These ashes will tan leather nicely, and the stems and leaves are full of fine, strong fiber, while the snowy flowers abound in honey. The saw palmetto is not such a nuisance as is generally supposed. aiioua small fruits thrive best in the black, tenacious Boil of tlie flatwoods. Prominent among these is the bear- berry, a large, rough-skinned berry that gros on a stem only tenor twelve inclies in height, and has a rather in sipid taste. Vast -quantities of them grow in the poorer spots, and indeed it is considered useless to make much of land on which it is found growing. Sev- soM era! kinds' of huckleberries, m.iet of them of a dwarf nature, abound in tlie more elevated portions, and seem especi ally detighted ingrowing near old logs ana stumps, xney ripen m early sum mer, and continue but a few weeks. Tlie mockingbirds soon make way with mem. r. But the finest wild fruit to be found n tlie t lorida flatwoods is the blueberry, In places where the fires have been kept Aug WHOLESALE GROCERIES. O. B. SMITH. CHA3. E. v . v.- W. LYON & CO., WHOLESALE GROCERS . - - AND DEALEItS IN HABD WAKE. CROCKERY, BUILDING MATERIAL, ETC. Lyon. Building, St. Augustine, Fla. mimn out a few years, th:s pretty, and really elegant littlejl ruit is found in great abund ance. The bushes grow in patches which are conspicuous some distance away by the light blue color of their leaves. The berry is about the size of a large buckshot, covered with a deep blue bloom, which is easily rubbinl off. Many old Crackers, together with the younger children, pick these berries and ia that way earn considerable pocket mouey, selling the lorries at ten cent per quart. There is a romantic side to this berry picking- businss. A love-lorn Oraefcey couple, straying through the floweni realm, filled with sentiment ami ret! bugs, is a pathetic and inspiring sight. Ar.on they seat themselves at the base of some leaning pine, and gaze wistfully lit each other. He picks a strand of wire grass, strings it with blueberries until it looks like a necklace of sapphire. In adorning her with this rude token of affectiou. his brown face comes very near unto hers, and shall he l blame)1 if he take advantage of it? Hardly, fru it must be rememliered that a Cracker is but mortal and love in Florida is like it is elsewhere. Others things, not less interesting, are found in the South Florida flatwoods. One of the strangest fruits is the "buck apple," which grows on a stem not more than ten inches high. When fully ripe, the buck apple is about the size of a large plum, smooth, oblong.snowy white and has a strange, weak, sickening flavor alxut it which saves it from the attacks of most animals, although some persons profess to have a liking for it. It is also called the hog apple and gopher apple, although this name is generally applied to a dwarf species ot the pawpaw, which grows in abundance through the Florida flatwoods. It bears a large, white, ill-smelling flower, and an oblong musky fruit that is worth less, and apparently is not eaten by any animal, so that the gopher part is purely honorary. Sweet myrtle, pennyroyal, pepper mint and vanilla are characteristic of flatwoods land. This vanilla is a broad leafed plant, with a tall stem, bearing a mass of purple bloom, and the leaves when dried, possess a strong odor of va- i ilia. This plant evidently has useful properties, which might be developed by exjeriuient. There are many tons of it growing in the Orange County flat-woods.- As if to atone, as far as possible, for an unattractive surface. Nature has showered her best floral gifts on the level piney woods of Florida. It would require a big book to name them all. At this time the pinguicula, or alligator let tuce, is lieginning to unfold its brilliant jietals, which shine like leaves of pol ished gold. Blue and white violets, lilies, and various stripped orchids, violet-scented flowers of various hues and shapes, are to be seen now in the more fertile flatwoods, and in the autumn the forest is gay with yellow habenarias and Catesby lilies, and a thousand little blos soms, which, combining in one blaze of glory, prove to the appreciative eye that this ia indeed the Land of Flowers. Sigma. : CONGRESSIONAL. Record of the Sayings and Doings of Our Public Servants. SENATE. Washington, February 23. Mr. Ed munds asked consent to take up and consider the bill incorporating the Mara- time Canal Company of Nicaraugua, stating as a reason for his request that he might be compelled to be absent all of next week and perhaps the week after, but at the suggestion of Mr. Vest he let the patter go over till to-morrow.

THE RAGE FOR PUBLIC BUILDINGS. The floor was accorded to the Commit tee on Public Buildings and Grounds, and bills were reported from that Com mittee and placed upon the calendar for the erection of buildings at the following points: Kalamazoo, Mich.; Yonkers, N.

A Duluth special to the Pioneer Press gives Fore man Lundborg's acccunt of the dyna mite accident there yesterday. He says it was one tliat would not have happened once in a thousand times. "We drilled five holes down sixteen feet and put in twenty-six cartridges, blasting them off on Monday. The blast went off all right and shook out all the rock and blew out all the holes except this one. Tlie parties who drilled this hole said they hail struck either rotten rock or clay. We supposed that the dynamite had ex ploded and made a hole in the rock inside. The hole was then cleared out, eight dynamite cartridges put in and set off. The men asked me before this if I was certain there was no dynamite in the hole, and I told them I was. As one or two of them seemed afraid, I held the drill while we were cleaning the hole. This second blast tore off about nineteen feet from the top. Tuesday afternoon I started a man again cleaning the hole, He went on with the work again yester day morning, but the men had only got to work when the accident occurred. One of the men holding the drill on top of the rock asked me if there was any dynamite in the hole, and I told him I was sure there waa none. No man re fused to work at the hole." Contractor Fitpatrick expresses entire confidence in Mr. Lundborg and excuses Iiiiii from alt blame. Of the injured, Andrew Eckland and Erick Matson died yesterday afternoon, making four deaths in all. Lv Anderson and Charles Matson may also die. , Ice Gorge at Port Jenis. Port Jervis, N.
