My Neighbor’s Lace Lambrequins.
or the land’s sakes! ” exclaimed Mrs. Brown, dropping in upon me tor a morning’s call, “ what an ex travagant creature that young Mrs. Harman is! why just as I was coming through the back yard, I happened to glance up, and I do declare, it there to all her kitchen windows didn’t -hang the most beautiful lace lambre quins I ever set my eyes on.” “ La ce lambrequins at her kitchen windows ! you must be mistaken.” “ No, I am not, and if you don’t be lieve it, jest go and look for yourself.” I did so; and there, sure enough, were hung what appeared to be ele gant lace lambrequins. “ She'll ruin that husband of her’s,” continued Mrs. Brown. “ I must say it makes me angry to see such doings. Mr. Brown is worth twice as much as her husband, and I never thought of having anything but green paper Cur tains at any of my windows. ! • • ■ “ Well,” I remarked, “I think my self, it is a very extravagant move. Young persons when starting in life, should be economical',, if ever, and look out for a rainy d&y.” iq “Have you called?’’asked Mrs., Brown. “ No, but I should like to.” “ Then supposin’ you slip on your bunnit, and we’ll jest step over. Those lambrequins have madeihe kind o’ curious.” - * I assented and in less than'five min utes we 6tood at ; the door of a pretty cottage. 'S -fdu.Lrj -nul “ Good moraifigiladiqs,!’ said Mrs. Harman, appearing at the -door in a neat calico morning dress, " walk in,” and she ushered’ us into a cool, shady room, whose windows were draped with white dotted muslin. She was very social, and fell at ouceinto a pleasant chat. At last Mr6. Brown introduced the topic ol domestic economy. “Yes indeed,” said Mrs. Harman, “ I know something of economy. Harry and I are just starting in life, and I leel we ought to save iu every way that we can, without infringing upon our real comfort. He wanted me to keep a girl, but I told him, no, that I had much rather do my own ■work, and I fiud it very pleasant too. Through the Lot x bright and early, and get all the ba king aud sweeping, out of the way before breakfast ; then I have plenty of leisure to sew?. Yesterday, I fin ished those curtains, (pointing to the window), I didn't think they would do so well. I made them out of a couple of old white dresses that I had thrown aside—” “Youought to have put your lace lambrequins in here,” said Mrs. Brown. Mrs. Harman looked puzzled. “ What do vou mean ?'” she asked. “ Why them beautiful lace things you’ve got hanging up to your kitchen window's; I couldn’t think of such extravagance in my house.” Mrs. Harman broke into a hearty laugh— “ Wont you step out and look at them ? ” she asked. “ Well I never! if I ain’t beat! ” uttered the amazed Mrs. Brown, as we surveyed them, for, lo and behold, they were nothing but newspapers cut and notched in imitation of lace pattern. Mrs. H., kindly showed us how to fold the papers and cut them, so we both walked home and hung lace lam brequins at our kitchen window's — try it. — M. E. Stone in Rural N~eio Yorker. WM.

The well established fact that Orange Culture in Florida is one of the most relia ble and best paying interests in this highly favored region, presenting as it does, the strongest inducements to capital seeking profitable investment,relieves the subscrib er of the necessity of entering into detailed statements as though it were a mere exper iment of questionable results. From long experience and close observation I am thoroughly satisfied that the leading con sideration essential to success in this rap- curtailing my extensive operations beydud what is desirable, to otfer for sale, either a half or an entire interest in two of the most promising groves iu the State, which I will now proceed to describe, viz : Idlewild Grove, containing 238 acres of clioics hammock laud, fronting f of a, mile on the beautiful Lake Pansoffkee. Upon this tract thefe are about 4,000 budded trees in .position, 1,- 000 of which number bloomed the present season and will bear this yertr from 15,000 to 30,000 oranges. By next year at least 500 additional trees will bear, and the in creased yield will probably exceed .100,000 oranges. Within three years tile entire 4.000 trees will commence bearing and by that date will.unquestionably produce over 1.000,000 oranges. This grove also embraces 35,000 sour seedlings, now five years old and already budded, which is more than suffi cient to set the balance of the land. Ten acres of this place is set. in the prolific evesr uearing Lemon, ripening continuously the year round, and two acres are planted in Bananas that are in a flourishing condition: and I propose to bestow upon this grove 5,000 more banana plants from my Home grove. I otter a half interest in the above described property for SIO,OOO cash. Shell Mound Grove, containing ISO acres richest hammock land, fronting 11 miles on the beantiful Withla eoochee river. Upon this place are 1,000 orange trees that have; ust commenced bearing and will yield the present season at least 25,000 oranges, and certainly over 100,000 next year. Also 15,000 six year old sour seedlings already budded, and one acre set in Bananas. I propose to bestow on this place 2,500 more banana plants. I offer the whole of this last mentioned place for $13,000 cash. The locality of both these groves fully insures against liability to injury from the severest changes of temperature, and I re gard this section of country as the very best in the State for the successful cultiva tion of semi-tropical and tropical fruits north of the Caloosahatchee river—First, on account of the inexhaustible fertility of the soil, it being a deep, vegetable mould underlaid with shell marl abounding iu phosphates. Second, immunity from frost, oil account of the large bodies of waterion the north and west for many miles. The murderous freeze of 1835 did not kill down the wild trees in this locality, as tlieiaige stocks plainly indicate, and the freeze of 1876 did not injure the most tender leaf of the Lime. On account of this oranges can be permitted to remain on the trees until March or April, thereby insuring a higher price than if compelled to seek a market, earlier, while the strength of. the soil in sures a full apunaj (*qp /of .fruit. Third, safe and sure transportation Via the Wlth lacoochee to Cedar Key, a distance of ad; miles: and, ert: long, the Railroad from Waldo to Tamph will pass through or dear these lands. ,As & home, this region is desirable! on s at count bf hentßMMfess and of the gfeat abundance of game and fish. It is alsoWe of the best stock ranges in the State, fhe land is high and rolling and the soil is Well adapted to truck farming. Title’ peifjict, Address, for additiauail lntormation, A. L.
