TIDINGS FROM FLORIDA.
Mr Editor : It seems to be the style for
travelers, especially if they hail from eld
JNew .England, to send an occasional let
ter to the local papers at home. It is
said that one might as well be oat of the
world as out of the fashion, so I will let
that be my excuse for joining the list of
letter-writing absentees. OraDge City is
116 miles south of Jacksonville, and is
situated in what is known as "the orange
belt," a tract of high, rolling pine land.
30 miles long by 10 miles wide. The land
was bought and the to vn laid out by live
men from Eau Clair, Wis., in 1875, but
the first good bouse here was "Pioneer
Cottage," built in 1876 by Woolsey Leav
itt, originally from Washington, Conn.
That was the foundation of what baB
long been known as "Connecticut Cor
ner," and the beginning of the still grow
ing Connecticut colony. Among the
names familiar to many of your readers
are the following : Mrs Abby I. Ounn,
"the mother of the Gunnery," Mrs Vaille,
Thomas S males, Mr and Mrs K. S. Leav
itt and Mrs W. W. Leavitt, all of Wash
ington : Mr and Mrs F. D. McNeil of
Litchfield; Mr and Mrs N. B. Strong of
Warren and Isaac Bockee and family,
formerly of the same town ; B, li. Pratt
of Kent; Mr and Mrs G. S. Lyman and
daughter and Miss Julia Averill of New
Preston; H. P. Averill and Miss Jennie
Averill of Brooklyn ; Bobbins Bockee,
who moved to Oregon in 1893, has recent
ly moved back.
The one topic of conversation in Flor
ida, this winter, universaljand all-absorbing,
is the weather. That is supposed to
be a time-worn subject, resorted to only
in the direst extremity, but this winter is
showing more revolutions in Florida
weather than the Hawaiian Islands can
show in their government. The "ex
tremity" is "dire." We feel like saying
"Poor thing!" to every denuded orange
tree, and every rose bush full of frozen
buds. But this strange country abounds
in hope as perpetual and delightful as its
nowers ana sunshine ; ana lovers or Flor
ida in her beauty, cannot lose faith in her
ability to renew ner strengtn and stand
forth in a few short weeks clad in new
robes, and crowned with the bridal or
ange bloom. In the mean time, howev
er, the groves look very .forlorn. me,
bearing groves are being cut back ruth
lessly. Only the trunks of rhe trees and
the stumps of the large branches are left,
every small branch and every twig being
removed. To a stranger, the outlook is
most discouraging, but they who are best
acquainted with the rapid growth of the
tropics and sub tropics assure u that
Florida sand and sunshine, with a judic
ious addition of fertilizer from the uorth
will soon cover the skeletons with a new
growth. We are having "real Florida
weather" now; the roses are sprouting
again and the fragrant yellow jessamine
is in bloom. The thermometer has rang
ed from 72 in the morning to 80 in the at
ternoon for several days. A soft breeze
makes the temperature not only endur
able but delightful, while the mocking
birds cheer and charm us from earliest
dawn till the sun is setting. Florida, al
though truly "under the weather," still
wields a subtle fascination over the tran
sient sojourner within her borders. We
are glad we are here, and heartily wish
the grip-stricken "Nutmeg State" would
greatly enlarge the Connecticut colony
in Orange Citv during the treacherous
rnnnttn of March and April. Very truly
yours, J. A., Orange City, Fla.
GRANGE ITEMS,

American drama, "The weird Singer of

in person are three ladies and a dude.
I tie dude, Mr Draw ID Alilde, and. the
manager's Irish servant, Michael
O'Slithergram, cause no little laughter
Mr Milde, who prefers to play the part
f a "hewo, don'tcher know," is cast as
i double dyed villain. And Michael,
whom the manager is indebted to, to the
amount of five dollars, continually re
minds Mr Aleck of the fact. Finally
ne (the manager) decided to use his ser
vant for the part of the faithful negro
wno rescues tne lady from the villain.
Mr Milde, and in doing so Michael tries
to "Ironstrate him so bard that his own
rn'ther al not know the likes of him.
Mr Milde thinks it is "too wough don't

villain and resigns. . The reBt follow

- THE TOBACCO MARKET OUTLOOK.
It looks at the present time as if many
of the tobacco growers will have to pack
their tobacco as several crops remain un
sold. The prospects for selling is poor
as no purchasers appear, not a Very
bright outlook for raising the weed
another year. At the present price there
is no money in it at all.

WOODBURY.
DEATH OF HON SAMUEL MINOR. .
Hon Samuel Minor' departed this life.
Sunday, March 3, at his home in Los
Angeles, Cal. He had been in impaired
health for a considerable time, and de
clined slowly to the close of an honora
ble and highly useful life at the age of
nearly 72 years. Mr Minor was barn iu
Woodbury, and resided there till bis
graduation from Yale University in 1844,
ana at tne Law scbool two years later
Ue then opened a law office in Woodbury
wbere ne remained about a year, see
ing a more hopeful opening at Sandukv.
Ohio, he removed thither and entered on
a large and successful practice and there
remaned for a number of years, when
he removed to Titusville, Penn., where
he was actively engaged in the practice
of his profession for 20 years. The
Titusville Herald, in a recent iseue
speaking ot Mr Minor, said: "Mr Minor
was held iu high esteem in Titusville,
wbere be lived about 2a years, fie was
a whole hearted worker in his profession,
tnar. or a lawyer, making tin client's in
terest his own, leaving nothing undone
ne cou'a tninu of to secure or promote
the welfare of any who chose him for
attorney and counselor. The strong
Mae or. ms character was bis con
-cientiousness. He could not make 'the
worse appear the better reason
Much as he was respected as a citizen,
admired as a lawyer, or esteemed aa a
legislator by a wide circle of acquaintan
ces, It was as an every day and all
around con-istant Christian, that he has
left bis strongest impress on the minds
of the people of this community, and we
can frame no higher words of praise.

lost one of its b?st members and the
Erie Prsbytery one of its strongest
men, wnen a lew years sgo Samuel
sought the more congenial climate of
Southern California. His whole life was
a defi int denial of the silly idea that a
man cannot be an active lawyer and at
tne same time a consinant Christian
Having been an elder in Dr Chichester's
church at Titusville, he was elected an
elder in the First Presbyterian church at
Los Argeles On the organization of
Immanuel church, he was made an elder.
and retained the position to the day of
nn oeiD. fie .was a wise, sare and
prudent counselor in all church courts.
He was a lover of the Bible as it is, and
while devoting much time and : thought
to questions oi science, he never feared
to follow a scientific thought to the ulti
matum lest it might contradict the word
of God. The strong character of
Judge Minor was covered from the eye
of the world by a modesty of manner
which is not often seen in this age. He
was really
One of those great spirits
Which went down like suns.
And left on the mountain tops

He left a wife, to whom he had been
