believing it to be fpr the interest of
those who have already done so to
visit this place before settling else

benefited thereby.

This week speaks for itself. It is the Horticulturist’s
and Farmer’s paper complete. Every one of its eight
large pages is brim full of just such information as the na
tive Eloridian and the immigrant alike seek, and must have.
The farming world is in anew era; the old has in a
great measure passed away, and we are at the opening of a
new day. Scientific researches and experiments by scien
tific and practical men have worked a revolution, and
henceforth the man who is widestawake to this fact and that
Intelligence, Thought, Knowledge are the best aids in
Agriculture, is the man who will reap the largest return
from his expenditure of brain, labor and money. Fully
aware of this fact, the Agriculturists of Florida have de
manded a paper which will supply latest and best informa
tion undone which is devoted especially to their interests. It
is in response to this demand that the Xew Agricul
turist takes up the work that the Old laid down, with the
resolve on the part of the Editor and Publishers to im
prove and add to it until it is conceded that it
Is The Best
and most valuable paper published in the State of Florida.
Its columns are open to all questions relating to Agricul
ture and all such questions will be answered by our Editor
according to the best information to be obtained from long
experience and an extended and accurate knowledge of
Semi-tropical and Tropical Agriculture in its various
phases.
AY e are steadily obtaining a corps of regular corres
pondents who will represent every locality and interest of
the State. Ihe flattering auspices under which the paper
now’ takes up its work, give us confidence to say to the
public that, not content with the approval it already meets
with as the best
Weekly Paper Devoted to
the development of the agricultural resources of
Florida, we shall push our efforts to make this paper the
best exponent of
Semi-tropical Agriculture
before the public. Besides our regular corps of corres
pendents we cordially invite all of our subscribers to con
tribute to our columns any experience or knowledge
which will be useful to our readers. By using this paper
as a medium through which to exchange experiences and
opinions, our subscribers will derive great benefit them
selves and will, at the same time, make the Agricultur
ist interesting and instructive for others and so will help
us to make the paper what we intend it shall be—the best
Farmer’s and H orticulturist’s paper
Published in the South.
