Editor Biniks County Journal:- / So much has been said about hot v. oatner ail over the United States that 1 hesitate to ad dress a letter front thb. pari, of Florida for leur it would draw beads of pers piration from soma of your readers who imagine this is the hottest part of the American Continent. They never were more mistaken in their lives in this delusive idea; The days are not as hot as some I have spent iu North Georgia, and the nights are cool and invigorating- A delightful breeze blows hero ;r ' r o bout four o'clock m the ti .crnoons un til. six o’clock next morning.' Why people should go from mis part of the country to tho Northern States, to spend their summers, is more than I can understand, for we i ave muth cooler weather down here iu Summer, and then our cities are not fv- crow-dad. The tobacco i rising business in this part of the count; y cuts be conic a gumi reah.y. Almost every farmer is directing his attention to the cul tivation ot tibia weed and when his enjp is gathered ho is fully compensated for his trouble. 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 ted, 1u first crop oi tobacco about two 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 ear, be grown anywhere else-. Vegetable- of kinds, potatoes both sweet and fresh, squashes, beans and in fact everything in the vo -stable line grow with ease and are very prolific. The beauty about all this vegetable raising business is, that you find a ready market right at vour door, at fair pi ices, for a’l that you can raise There are a great many Georgians settled iti and around Tampa. The police force of ibis city is com posed ne-arij entirely of Georgians- They ail seem to be hustlers, too, and the city is piosid of them. The Cigar industry m Tampa is sent - thing peodigious. About sixty five to seventy-five thousand dollars o; r week is the combined pay roils of the factories here. The town is growing stead;.-- vad it Jacksonville does not. look *-> her laurels, sec us soon she will take from her the title of tn-3 Metropolis of 5 lorida. A movement is on font, to dredge out ifae Hillsborough Buy wh ,-i will per mit larger v . ..sels to come into thin harit-jr- It, is not a scheme but "3 ai.ity, through the indefatigable efforts of <>ur Cougressnmn Col Sparkman an appropriation for this work is now underway. The winters here are delightful, just, cool enough occasionally for a little tire. Why should people live in a couu. try where they freeze m Winter end sncll in summer, when they can find a happy medium in the "land of flow ers", and enjoy life. And if is just ws fcimithy here as it. any place you locate. All you have get to do is to lake care of yourself. Dont be hog gish and eat too much fruit when you first arrive and you will be alright. Land car. be had from §I.OO par acre up to any price you want-to pay. you can get real good farming land i |5.00 to SIO.OO per acre. I ~-a offered a me*, little faj'm of 20 acres about 12 miles from thy. place the other day tor $206.00* One half cleared, balance woodland, and of this tract ten acres was good hammock. Now! ray North Georgia readers, if it you are loth to believe what I say about this country (I am a North Georgian myself) just take advantage of one of those oheap axcursioas down this way and come down and see for yourselves. And furthermore I will saj right hero, that I am not rn the real estate btißinsss neither do l rep resent any big laud syndicate, but if you desire me to answer any question about tho laud or climate, just fire them at me, if you will semi a stamp to puy postage, anti it 1 can't answer them I will get soiue good reliable party to do so, for me, so you will be satisfied. Yours truly Lilto, W. Terrv, J 4 No 'lO4. Franklin Straet. Tampa '"a. Lakewood Park.-—Near Atlanta. Editor Jour: al : It might ik !be wholly’ uuinteresiing to the numerous country readers of your excellent paper to know just how the ninny ,vho r,.n fore id to come in contact with he livid cobblestones and glaring brick walls of oar Capitol city, manage to get a breath of fresh air these sultry July days. I refer to to that portion ot the community who have not pimpled head long into tho vrtex o’ prosperity, and have not the where, tv ( to go bgh to the mountain lnxuratc in the aromatic perfume of the clouds. Atlanta has many places of resort in close proximity to the city where one can get a breath of fresh air, Lid the one that is attracting the most at tention just at this time, whan mercury has become so thin that it will not reg ister thn temperature, is Lake Wood Park situated just; three miles from Georgiivs magniheient state house; from, the dome of which can be seen the artistic form of the goddess of lib. erty, her classic brow bathed its great heeds of perspiration. The lake at this charming r-sevt covers an area of seventy acres and is surrounded by a grove of fores!, trees which is interspersed with p-nvilier both houses and stands where cool c fieshments eats bo obtained for a trifle At night the whole seen is elurainated by a thousand electric lights i this grand panoramic view can bo seen a variety of boats darting out from different points along t’ ■ shore of the lake for :. sail, and. happy voices can be heard mingling with the liven strains of the band, which every even ing discourses delightful music fr mi some of the adjoining hilts. Thi -: de lightful resort can be reached from the city for a nominal coot, only ten cents to go and return by the electric car line, which has a schedule oi every twenty minutes to and from the city The scenery along tho route is both picturesque and romantic. Largo crowds visit the park every night. It is a God send to all those who are compelled to swelter and fume in poorly ventihated rooms during the day. In close proximity t, tho park is & rifle 'range, jr steel at the ex t is: f l 'he state, tor target shooting where details from the various military ccnt.- panics of the city meet almost daily to practice. It is a very expensive past time, and .he stare foots the tails. It might be well enough for the Blalock Investigating Committee, while they are looking into the affairs of the el ate officials, to take note of this matter* and see just how far the state is justi fied in expending large sums of ilia People’s money in keeping up such a useless expense in these times of McKinley prosperity. vhe old soldiers have returned from their trip to Nashville, and report having a huge time. The latch strings of the good citizens of the mountain j city hung on the outside, they were recived and entertained with that generous and lavish hospitality so characteristic of middle Tennessee; v-; ile the old veterans were delighted with tbeir trip, and the manner in which they were entertained: They arc asking some very noity -pteations B'hcy would like to know why it was they were charged five dollars and eighty five cents tor the round trip while the Govcrnoi and his party were only required io pay three dollars? They'don't understand just -hy it is that so great a discrimination should he in favor of tha men who hold office, unit's*- it. was that the old vets' have lost their usefulness, and the shekels they had laid to ono ride out of their hard earnings m order that they might once more meet and deep hands with their battle-scarred com rades was gobbled up in order to swell the coffers of wealty corporations Evavy yesr their rank is growing less, and it does see .u if there are i -y spec ial favors to be distributed the old lIOMER.

For four long yea is they stqpd as linn in tne trenches us the granites of their native hills, and their blood flowed an freely in repulsing the ad . j.iiv of the invading foeas the water, of their mountain streams. As '.he great balance wheel of time slowly revolves those who filled the trenches, and hal.l in chtek for four year:, the advancing columns of a hostile array, are slowly nsssing to the great beyond and if there if. be sny ape ’is: !i ; granted in the -■/ ipe of red:.cud rrlea otherwise, it occurs to us that the old survivors of th< lost cause should re ceive the minimum.
