IRISH POTATOES
This is a crop that has only been
grown in a commercial way in Flor
ida for the last fifteen or sixteen
years. Still It has made some ranid
strides in that time, especially in cer
tain districts, the most nrominent of
these being in the East Coast section
including a large territory in three
counties. There are other districts
where the Irish potato is grown rath
er extensively, especially on some of
the new rclaimed (drained) muck
and Everglade lands of the State.
This crop is also grown In some of
the special vegetable districts as a
secondary crop that is behind an
earlier crop during the same season,
'lhree other crops are grown as a sec
ondary crop with Irish potatoes- the
most important of these being corn.
Cowpeas and velvet beans are often
put in with the corn, the first for hay
and to enrich the soil, the second to
enrich the soil and the bean pods to
be gathered by hogs or cattle.

GREAT REYIYAL OF COM-
MERCE IN SOUTH AMERICA
(By Associated Press.)
Para. Brazil Septi 5. There were
twelve Bteamers today at the docks
cf the Port of Para- the "gateway of
the Amazons." Commenting upon
this unprecedented activity the Es-
tado says it is a long time since such
movement of commerce has been
seen in this harbor. Brazilians have
been looking forward to aa Increase
stories of wonderful progress . in
American shipbuilding during the
wai. inspiring tales of smashed rec
eras in rivet driving, and finished
Bhips being turned out in marvelous
time at mushroom yards on the At
lantic Gulf and Pacific coasts, it Is
i.robably true that "haste does not
make speed." An American was heard
to ask today as he looked at the' flags
flying from the masts of a dozen ves
sels: "Are we being left at the post?"
Henry S. Fleming, a New York en
gineer, has just arrived here from
Liverpool. He says that at each of, the
four ports at which his steamer
touched he saw American steamers in
a disabled condition.
At Leixaces the port for Oporto
Portugal he said there were two
American, ships in a disabled condi
tion; one was a shipping board
steamer, the other one of the wooden
ships built during the war rush. At
Lisbon there was a shipping board
Eteamer being repaired. At Funchal.
Madeira, there was a privately-owned
American steamer being patched up.
And upon his arrival here he saw the
h"Topocaxi."
Rumors of a similar condition in
other ports, he says, does not argue
well for American efforts to build Up
a nrst-ciass merchant marine. Among
the comment and questions heard
during a discussion of the situation
were, these: t
"What is the matter with the new
ships being built and with those be
ing banded over by the shipping
board to private charterers? Aro they
being duly inspected before bein,
handed over, or before putting out
to sea? Leakine steamers, wino
reflecting on our national shipbuild
ing efforts- mean damaged merchan
dise and resultant lack of confidence
in American-made goods; such a con
ditlon results in a definite set-back to
our efforts to build up foreign trade
on a permanent basis."
unusn sea captains and sailors
smile when anything is said of the
American merchant marine being a
serious competitor. As one captafn
puts it: "We are not afraid of ships
which cannot sail more than 300
miles without having engine trouble
or being compelled to make for the
nearest port."
