The performance was given by friends and associates of Mr. Fagan on the stage, and many who are famil 3ar with his career were In the audience. Florida-The Land of Perpetual Farming (Excerps from Booklet , issued bv the U. S. Railroad AdminiWrntinn'i GOOD ROADS ;K Florida has great tracts of land that have no agricultural development on them; still leading through these vast expanses you will find perfect high ways. While not all our roads ar good, there 'are thousands of miles of surfaced roads in the State at pres.. en, and by next fall there will be a Targe increase. The State Road De partment gives the following figures in its report of September 30, 1918: Brick, 463 miles; concrete, 8 miles; asphaltic concrete or sheet asnhalt. each year for the purpose of obtaining the seeds. This industry has proved very profitable to many of our farm ers. CANTALOUPES ine cantaloupe production of the State Is growing each year, and ex periments are showing that we can grow high-grade stock. Ia 1916 ship ments were 60,000 crates, In 1917 72, 900, and In 1918 97,500. They can be grown in all sections.

Therefore it is natural to suppose that you would find the sucrose content high. Florida-produced sugar- cane has shown by careful laboratory tests to show a higher percentage of sucrose compared with that , produced else where In the United States, or even Cuba. This is one crop that is grown in the extreme west and also found' n the extreme Bouth end of the keys. 'Viost of this crop is made into syrun. and as a rule it is grown in small patches and made up by small outfits on the individual farm. ; Still there are some very large acreages being put out in the Everglade Section, with large syrup mills to handle the cron. Some of the North and West Florida counties have great fields planted to this also. WATERMELONS The average freight train Is about thirty-two cars. Last . year Florida shipped 200 train loads of thirty-two cars each 6,400 cars. This, just by the way of introduction, to show you that we produce a few watermelons.
