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

ORANGE GKOVES
FOR SALE.
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.
