Phosphate Men
Increase Scope;
Opening Mines
Prepare for Greater Activity in South
, -f Florida .-
A great amount of activity is re
ported tbrougbout the phosphate ter
ritory surrounding Tampa. An in
dustry partially paralyzed by the war
has been revived with the injection
of more life than it. has ever before
enjoyed. Prophecy, was made today
by phosphate men competent to judge
that more phosphate will be mined
and placed on the market in 1919 than
in any year and a half prior to the
outbreak' of the war in 1914.- '
What does it mean to Tampa? Be
fore the war Tampa was known as
the largest shipping port; for phos
phate in the world. - The industry
was steady and knew no decline' from
year ; to. year. The industry, served
as a steady support to Tampa and all
surrounding country and contributed
its share in building the community.
Ships came into, the port from all
parts of the world, were supplied and
outfitted for voyages find outfitting
ship means ready money in any
port. Connected with the phosphate
industry is an endless chain of em
ployment of both labor and capital,
all tributary to Tampa.
Just at the ckme of the war phos
phate interests formed a pool and
agreed to deal through a single head
in making exports. Prediction' has
been made that this one move would
do more towards advancement . of
phosphate interests than any other
one thing. Prior to the war compe
tition in phosphate was exceptional
ly keen in every way. Producers and
mines bid against each other in for
eign fields for business. Many cases
of underselling to obtain business
crippled strong concerns. None of
the mines could, depend on a steady
market, and it was not until recently
when the combination of interests
was formed that such a thing became
possible
The one export agont, through
whom all business will move in the
future, will, it is said, fix prices as he
considers best on all kinds and grades
of phosphate rock. Cost of competi
tion will be eliminated. Mines will
is of no mean importance.
Coronet mines, just outside of
Plant City, are prepared to produce
on an increased scale. All phosphate
men agree that the time is hear when
activity in the industry will be at its
high tide where it will remain at its
fixed point and where nothing short
of another war can disturb the stead
iness of production or the market for
the product Tampa Times. ;

United States department of agri
culture, office of farm management,
Gainesville, Pla.
A recent survey made by the Flor-
aid field agent, bureau of crop esti
mates, discloses some , Interesting
facts. With their permission I shall
quote some figures that may be help
ful to those who contemplate mak
ing Florida their home.
This survey divides the state into
four divisions, northwest, northeast,
central and southern.
The average land value of all plow
land in the state is given at $33 per
acre. The northwest division' shows
this value $25 per acre, the northeast
$23, the central $43 and the southern
$82. In the nortwest and northeast
divisions of the state, general farm
crops and live stock " are principal
products. In the southern , division
winter vegetables and citrus fruits
are prominent, while in the central
division all these products combine
to make up the agricultural industry.
The portions of the state where gen
eral farm crops and live stock are
being produced offer good opportuni
ties for further development and as
previously shown land values are
comparatively low. There are many
old plantations which have had but a
few inches of the top soil worked
that are now being offered at less
price than one can clear and put new
land under cultivation, and is capa
ble of being made to produce the first
year much better crops than can be
expected from new land,

Prediction has been made that the

work and have it well under way bo-
fore the end of the summer. A vast
amount of work had been executed at
the time it was discontinued. In fact,
the railroad connecting Tampa with

Prairie Pebble Spendtag $&tt,MS
The Prairie Pebble Phosphate Co.,
near Mulberry, is spending approxi
mately $500,000 on improvements.
The work is well under way and the
money is being spent to better facil
itate mining of their deposit and also
looking to a greater production. An
nouncement hns been made that the
Export Phosphate Co., near Mulberry,
will open its mines in the near future
and begin operation in full blast The
opening of the mines will give em
ployment to a large number of men.
Morris & Co., packers, have plans
under way to mine deposits owned
by them near Bartow. The property
owned by the company is said to be
of the finest from a phosphate stand
point and marks the entrance of the
packers into the phosphate industry
in Florida. Swift & Co., have mined
on the Alalia river for a number of
years. Armour has been in the field
a number of years and has operated
on property near Fort Pierce.
All three concerns contemplate in
creased', and extensive operations.
However, the phosphate mined by the
packing concerns - represents phos
phate used ia commercial fertiliser.
None of the three companies export
any of their production whatever. An
