B- our respects to the beautiful town of
Bala situated in the midst of a rich and
Bturesque hummock with its wealth of
Bdure and magnificent forest growth, the
Bposing structures of brick and pretty
Bidenees peering forth through their set-
Bgof green on every side, cannot fail to
Barm the eye of the visitor. Asa business

Berior towns of Florida. Large areas of

Spacious store-house are utterly inadequate

B'essary to supply the wants of liis cus-

H \nether bank admirably manged, and nn-
Berous additional stores heavily stocked
attractive wares, also attest the thrift
Bd importance of the town. Neither time
Br space will permit us to particularize at
Besent. and indeed the business houses of
Br place were elaborately set forth in a
Brrner letter. In passing, the writer
Bnuld mention, however, that the large

Bisy, ami Ocala can boast of the only seed
iu Florida, that of Mr. ,J. B. Sutton,
Bve one. In a region where vegetables,
Buds and farm products are the
Bief sources of revenue, and
■ire and practicable acclimated
Beds and plants are of vital im-
Brtance, this deficiency should not exist,
B*e Southern Seed Company, of Macon,
B- does much to supply the demand.
■ The influx of visitors tho past season has
Ben less than usual, and the principal hotel,
B ll ' Ocala House, barely paid expenses. This
Has due to the fact that a -rival establish
ment at Silver Springs, near by, absorbed
Be lion’s share of the tourists, many of
Bhom would go there and leave without
Biding Ocala at all. It would be to the
Hiterest of the town to purchase and control
■us property. The writer stopped at the
■hieb is located very near one of the rail
■nad debits and is kept open the year round,
■he proprietor, Dr. C. J. Allred, is very
Hopiuar with the traveling public, and his
Hotel is generously patronized. He can ac
commodate over fifty guests. The new rail-
Hoad to the gulf has "been completed to Blue
■Springs, and the writer would acknowledge
Bn invitation from the polite officials to join
Hn excursion party to that attractive resort.
Hluch is expected from the opening up of
Bhis additional highway to “deep water.”
■he shipments of vegetables are daily in
creasing at remunerative prices. Tiie pros-
Hect for the next orange crop, however, is
Bar from promising. Many growers are
Blmost destitute of fruit, and nowhere will
Bhe yield amount to an average.
Hhieh, with its sixty miles of lake naviga-
Bion and progressive merchants and farmers,
Bs deservedly one of the most attractive
■oiiits in Florida, continues to improve sub
stantially. The vivid green of orange
■povas and the glittering sheen of the broad
Bak- s which bound the horizon ou either side
■impart an almost tropical aspect to the
■town. Since our last visit several new
■places of business have been opened, among
■them the grocery store of J. F. McClendon,
■under the management of D. M. Hopson.
■ Jonii H. Inglis now runs the Elliott restaur
■am and bakery, ami various other merchan
■tw changes have taken place! On tho

Mr. E. Bishop, formerly of the Eustis
Bank, has opened a banking house here and

and great convenience to the community.
Dr. Stringer, who is engager! in the drug
business, is the oldest physician in the
place, haying been engaged in the practice
of medicine for twenty years. The drug
store of E. R. McGuire is also anew enter
prise. W. S. Hancock is one of tho live men
of the town, being the proprietor of three
business establishments and full of energy.
His new brick livery and feed stables are
among the latest improvements. J. A.
Washington, master builder, was the archi
tect of the Hernando Hotel and many other
stores and private residences, and is kept
constantly busy. He will soon complete
two additional stores, to be occupied imme
diately. Messrs. Benway, Wilson & Cos.,
real estate agents, report building lots and
farms in demand and advancing in value.
Recently they measured a gigantic live oak
growing in the vicinity, which was 13 1-2
feet in diameter. The famous Annutaliga
hummock contains 80,000 acres, 00 per
cent, of which is arable land.
A VETERAN ORANGE GROWER.
Col. T. S. Coogler, whose five-acre orange
grove has been so widely advertised, told
the writer that the seeds were originally
deposited in checks and when t hey came up
were merely thinned out, without trans
planting, hence their rapid and vigorous
growth. The Colonel also affirms that two
full crops of oranges in succession are very
exhausting to the trees, and a third, which
is rarely known, sometimes almost results
in their ruin. We saw clusters of the
Japun plum raised by this gentleman from
the seed which were simply delicious. This
is a very hardy fruit, sustaining no damage
whatever from the cold of the past two
THE HERNANDO HOTEL,
the clever proprietor of which estab
lishment is Mr. L. Y. Jenness, still
maintains its prestige as one of the
leading hotels in Florida. The wonder
is, how a place of the size of Brooksville can
support such a hotel in tho face of active
and meritorious competition. But the fact
is patent to every visitor, and those who
come once are certain to return again. So
much for Brooksville, which is destined to
be one of the great agricultural centres of
We close our missive with a brief mention
of another of Hernando’s towns.
This is an important fruit and vegetable
shipping point, situated in an exceedingly
fertile region. Many of the most substan
tial farmers in the county are located in the
vicinity. Just now the town is in a state of
transition from its present site to one far
more elevated and eligible on the line of the
Florida Railway and Navigation railroad,
but still within the corporate Unfits. Several
stores will soon be completed, and a total
change of business base effected. It will
prove a vast improvement to the hygiene
and appearance of the place. The new lo
cation includes many choice building sites
which will be improved without delay. The
old stores and edifices which are to be
vacated, it is said, will be promptly occupied
by newcomers, rt ilroad operatives, etc.
Dade City has just cause to be proud of
its two boarding houses, one kept by Maj.
Lewis, and the other by Mr. J. K. Davis.
The writer was the guest of the latter, but
from past experience can testify most cheer
fully to the merits of both. At, either, one
may enjoy all of the comforts of a pleasant
We are under special obligations to Avant
& Calhoun, J. D. Thagard, Dr. J. Wallace,
and Postmaster F. P. McElroy, for courte
sies extended. Dr. Wallace has pursued his
vocation here ever since 1870. Mr. McElroy
is an appointee of the new administration
and makes a most acceptable officer.
Col. A. J. Gill, of South Carolina, recent
ly formed a copartnership for life with a
pretty widow in this neighborhood. The
children of the two to. begin with, count
sixteen. What will the forlorn bachelor say
to this picture of connubial felicity? And
yet thev seem to lie superlatively happy.
Mr. J. L. Ashkw, a Macon boy, entered a
homestead of 100 acres five years ago, near
Dade City, which now $5,000 could not buy.
He has over twenty varieties of grapes in
bearing and thriving plantations of oranges,
lemons, bananas, limes, figs, mulberries and
Le Conte pears. This shows what well-di
rected energy ami industry will achieve in
Florida. No more at present. H. H. J.
A WYOMING INCIDENT.
Sad Story of a Rancher and His Dead
“At Rawlins, Wy., a few weeks ago,”
said a commercial traveler to a Chicago
Herald man, “I saw one of the saddest inci
dents it has ever been my misfortune to
witness. A rancher rode into town on
horseback, holding in his arms a dead baby
—a sweet little thing with flaxen hair,
which curled all over its head,, and soft
blue eyes which had not been closed even
in death. Seventy-five miles across the
country that rancher had carried the dead
babe in his arms. I talked with him and
heard his story. It was like this: A year
or more ago he had begun a correspondence
with a young wyinan in Chicago, getting
her address from a matrimonial paper. The
result was an exchange of photographs and
finally marriage. The girl went to li'e
with him on his ranch, but tho lonely life
did not suit the city girl, and a few weeks
after the birth of her babe she ran away to
Chicago, leaving husband and child behind
her. There was no woman on the ranch,
and tho rough father did the best he could
to rear the child. I have no doubt that ho
was tender and attentive. In fact, ho said
he neglected his stock and did nothing else
but care for the child; but robbed of its
mother’s care the little one sickened and
“ ‘My life seemed to go out with that ar
little one,’ said the rancher in his rough
way, ‘and when she uied I cried like a
woman. Then my heart rose in anger
against the mother, and I felt that I could
kill her. It seemed to me that ’ar balie
would be alive and smilin’ and cooing to
day if her mother had not deserted her.
Then, says I to myself, I’ll be revenged.
And so I wrapped the poor little balie in a
blanket, jumped on my horse an’ came here.
I’m goin’ to send the mother a little present,
a peace offerin’ from her deserted husband.
I’m gain’ to send her the body of her lit
“He actually procured a little coffin and
laid the babe m it, after kissing tho white
faeo again and again and cutting a few
locks of tho golden hair from the little
round head. r l here were no tears in his
eyes —ho seemed to bo past that—but u.s he
turned away from the railway station,
where he had shipped the body to an ad
dress in Chicago which I shall not give, ho
upjieared to be the mo t broken-hearted man
Ive ever seen.
“In five minutes ho came running back,
seized the little box and exclaimed:
‘“No! no! I can't do it. Give me my
little’un. Keep tho money, but give mo
my little girl.’
“Before the station agent could say a
word the mail had put the box on his shoul
der and ran away. Five minutes later we
saw him on his horse, the box in his unus,
galloping iiack to his ranch.’

THE DEVIL’S DUE.
Why a Yorkshire Baby Was Not
Christened in a New Church.
From the Manchester Courier.
When tho writer was a parson in York
shire he had in his parish a blacksmith
blessed or alllictod—which shall we say ?
with seven daughters and not a son. Now,
the parish was a newly constituted one, and
it had a temporary licensed service-room;
but in the week before the newly-erected
church was to be consecrated the black
smith's wife presented her husband with n
boy—his first boy. Then the blacksmith
came to the parson, and the following con
Black-mith—Please, sir, I've got a little
lad at last, praised be, and I want to have
him baptized on Sunday.
Parson —Why, Joseph, put it off to Times
day, when the new church will be const -
crated; then your little man will be the first
child christened in the new font in the new
Blacksmith (shuffling with bit feet, hitch
ing his shoulders, looking down)—Please,
sir, folks say that t' fust child as is baptized
i’ anew church is bound to dee (die). The
old un (the devil) claims it. Naw, sir, I've
seven lasses and but one lad. If tills were a
lass agin, 'twouldn’t a mattered; but as it's
a lad—well, sir, I won't risk it.
