A young man of Tame a finding
nothing to do to make a living in the
city, leased a small piece of ground
outside of the city limits and only plau

acres of ground. This yealded him
1,500 pounds of very fair leaf tor
which he found a ready sale at 60cts
per pound, making his crop onng him
in $900.00. It only ems from 6 to
Sets per pound to grow the tobacco
plant, taking in consideration every
expense of culture. So my readers
ma y see the enormous profit in this
business. You can raise two crops of
tobacco each year on good hammock
laud which .meeds very limit-, if any.,
phosphate or guano, in fertilizers.
This part of the world is indeed
blessed with a.elimate and soil so that
it is po trouble to raise anything that

sweet and fresh, squashes, beans and
in fact everything in the vo -stable line

The beauty about all this vegetable

fair pi ices, for a’l that you can raise
