O All rttots if republication of (Dedal & diipatcbei herein are Um roMrred. 0 Lake county seems to be enjoying a high degree of prosperity a con summation which it has earned by go ing after it persistently and aggres sively. St. Petersburg is enjoying a build ing boom. In spite of the high prices of material and lumber, building per mits In 1 that city aggregated nearly two hundred thousand dollars the first half of August. 'Moreover, the St Petersburg people are not doing it through any philanthropic impulse, but as a business investment. They believe that, even at present prices, new houses will soon pay fo them selves, and the growth which that city has enjoyed in the past is a pret ty good guarantee that their judgment is not defective. The question is, if ' building pays at St. Petersburg, why wouldn't it pay at Lakeland? o Getting back to normal In this country involves just two things: The accumulator of Jhe normal stock of products of all kinds, and the de flation of the currency to a gold basis. The first step will have been taken within twelve months, or less, provid ed crop outlook of the present year is realized. In fact, it is not far from accomplishment now. The second will require more time, but the ma chinery for carrying it out is in working order and in good hands. No danger exists except such as arises from public misconception of , the conditions. If our political lead ers on both sides would devote less time to silly recriminations, and give the public plain information on the elementary principle8 of finance and Its relation to prices, they would per form a most valuable service.- This country Is 'Just as sound as a gold eagle, and there is no mystery wrap ped up in its present economic situ ation which common sense can't solve. - o FLORIDA'S FUTURE - Climate, agriculture and commerce are the three great factors uponj Which Florida's future depends. Minor industries, like fishing, phos phate mining and certain forms of manufacture, will swell the sum total of the state's prosperity, but they will always remain subordinate. Florida's climate is the magnet which draws hundreds of thousands cf winter tourists' and guarantees that this shall remain the nation's favorite winter playground. Its In fluence extends to every portion of the state, but it is more pronounced in the peninsula. It has a potential cash value measurable only in bil lions. If the state had nothing else, itg, climate alone would be sufficient to guarantee its future. Its agriculture, still in its infancy, is a factor of tremendou- importance. It has hardly progressed enough, as yet, to enable its final development to be forecast. But some things may be predicted with confidence. This will be a great cattll and dairy state. It will some day take the lead in tho - production of poultry and eggs. Pork raising can be increased indefinitely- The production of citrus and other semi-tropical fruits can and will be vastly increased. Such fruits- as the guava, the mango, the avocado pear, the Japanese persimmon, the Florida peach, and many things of small present Importance as exports, will' be greatly improved and then produced in larger quantities. Corn is already taking a larger place among the . farm crops, and there is every reason to expect it to continue to do so. And along wits it, there will be a great Increase In ttl! forage and hay crops. Tbe state Is well adapted to sugar cane. If a few million acres of cane were brought ft maturity here each year and refined within the state, it would settle the sugar problem. But even !f the sugar market falls. to a point m low as to make sugar refining In this state unprofitable, there is an unlimited demand for Florida syrup. Winter vegetable growing will take an ever-lncredslng importance among the state's industries. The truth is, Florida can produce so wide a variety of thlngs tn&t the course of its agri cultural development will depend as much upon the needs of the markets as the facilities of its soil and cli- maje ' Commerce is the thing that builds cities.

It will be such a showing as will sur prise even Floridlans, who have thought themselves familiar with the resources of their native state. What, then will be the feeling of the thou sands of vlstors from out of the 8tate who view for the first time, perhaps, anything like a complete exhibition of citrus fruits?
