Description

The Orange County Citizen issue published on July 25, 1911. This edition features articles on Maitland, Florida. Such topics include the various groves in Maitland, the various churches, the Maitland Library, a proposed traction line to be built by the Florida Citrus Railway Company,the residences of several residents, Chadbourne Hall, convict leasing, the cotton industry, the Winter Park Fruit Company, the Orlando Irrigated Farms Company, and the town of Oakland.

The Orange County Citizen was originally published as a weekly newspaper by Dr. Geiger (first name unknown) of Apopka, Florida. The paper was known for having a morally sound tone due to its publisher's profession as a Baptist preacher. However, after taking the position of a missionary, Dr. Geiger gave the paper up to A. B. Newton, who represented Winter Garden in the Florida Legislature. Newton kept up the moral tone of The Orange County Citizen, but soon found that he was unable to continue publishing the paper due to his other obligations. Newton then sold the paper to C. E. Howard, who was also the editor of The Orlando Reporter-Star. Under Howard, The Orange County Citizen continued it's moral tendencies and greatly supported Prohibition. Howard continued to run the newspaper weekly for seven years, until he eventually sold it to Arthur Ivey, a reporter for The Reporter-Sentinel. Ivey discontinued publication shortly thereafter.

“ Lover’ s walk” through the light hammock gap
leading out to “ Hiawatha Grove” is a beauty spot, with
the festooned moss hanging overhead and the ferns lining
the margin of the stream and pathway underneath.
“ The Oak Drive” at the entrance to the town from
Orlando has always been an enjoyable place. No matter
how warm the surrounding roads may be, here under
the interlaced oaks it is cool and pleasant and a number
of beautiful private parks line the way.
The church of the Good Shepherd with the Rectory

MAITLAND LIBRARY
THE PROMISED TRACTION LINE.
If there is one thing more than another calculated
to bring the Maitland section into greater prominence
and favor, as well as into closer connection with the outlying
world it is the promised Traction Line soon to be
built by the Florida Citrus Railway Company. Every*
thing points to actual work soon to commence on this
line and the right of way takes in all this section and,
as in all localities where trolly or traction lines are inaugurated,
this is bound to prove a great developer
without in anyway detracting from the comparative seclusion
of the winter homes situated back a little from
the lines of travel. The people of all this region are
looking forward with great hope to the completion of
is road not only for the convenience of passenger,
traffic and the transportation of their fruit but as a real
invigorator and developer of the conutry through which
it proposes to pass.

"HIAWATHA GROVE”
LAKES FAITH, HOPE AND CHARITY
MAITLAND.
P R O P E R T Y OF L. F. D OM E R IC H
This artistic structure stands as a
monument to the literary and cultivated
tastes of the community and is a
central point where the citizens of this
town for miles around may congregate.
The intellectual acumen of the residents
of a town must be judged from
its churches, libraries and schools and
for a small community Maitland has
its own testimonials to which it points
with pride.
THE THREE GRACES
Lakes Faith, Hope and Charity are
delightful sheets of water, whose undulating
banks and many reflectively
hued waters delight the senses, viewed
from the property of Mrs. Massey on
the hill-side just beyond, where the
accompanying picture was taken.
I T S R E A S O N FOR B E IN G
The Lake Maitland section enjoys
the distinction of being the earliest of
Orange county almost entirely located
by orange growers and winter resident
residents from the north.
Its ideal location easily tempted the
new comer and the charm of that early
day has not departed. From the short
stop of the cars at the railway station
the casual traveler through the state
wonld not guess that but a short distance
away in almost any direction
there are as fine orange groves and
comfortable homes as can be found
anywhere in the state. But it is the
natural scenery that captivates those
who are fortunate enough to while
away a little time in and about this
truly beautiful spot.
Lake Maitland itself is a superb body
of water and, for that matter, there
are other lakes about that are really
gems of the first water. Delightful
drives connect the town with handsome
estates and with Winter Park,
Altamonte Springe, Sanford, Orlando
and elsewhere.
The town is well shaded with magnificent
oaks and as the entire section
is on the margin of Lake Maitland
most of the growth is of a semi-hammock
nature, beautiful and rich in
character. The Turners, the Heards,
the Hills, the Simmons, the :*j ays,
Darts, Waterhouse and < :Ur'A were
One of the most entrancing spots in
all the State of Florida is the beautiful
“ Hiawatha Grove,” the magnificent
estate of Mr. L. F. Domerich of Ne#’
York City, covering hundreds of acres
of park and grove, lake and woodland.
Here Nature has certainly done her
best, as the splendid examples of rarewood
trees and shrubs demonstrate*
and to ail that Nature has supplied
Mr. Domerich, with the appreciative
eye of a connoisseur, has added on
every hand artistic groupings of rare
palms and plants with an endless va*
riety of most beautiful flowers.
Crowning all there rises amid the
towering pines the imposing structure
which for a few months is occupied by
Mr. Domerich as a winter home. Here
he gathers about him on occasions his
family and intimate friends and reaps
a rich harvest of pleasure for the
wealth of time, skill and money he
lavishes upon this Eden on Earth.
To attempt an adequate description
of this fascinating spot would require
the eye of an artist and the tongue of
an angel. The camera, truthful though
it is, can scarce portray the real beauty
of the surroundings. But, without
doubt, there is here gathered almost
every variety of tropical and sub-tropical
tree, shrub and flower, as well as
those of the temperate zone. Three
immense greenhouses and plant houses

closely identified with the making of the place. Mr. Edward
Turner started a general store on the ground Jfloor
of the “ Hall” in 1879, before the railroad made its appearance.
At that time the church services were held in the
“ Hall,” the first churches built being the Methodist and
Catholic. The “ Hall” was the center for all the social
gatherings, people coming as far as Apopka to occasional
entertainments.
The railroad brought new conditions, but Maitland
lias retained all af her early attractiveness and the people
tliere-about are among Orange county’ s best. BEAUTIFUL LAKE FRONTING CHADBOURNE HALL
are required to preserve the more delicate specimens, and
everywhere are seen those of a more mature or hardier
growth.
The pictures herein attempt to show a portion of the
mansion and groups of palms, with a beautiful mirror lake,
in which grow the most rare and delicate pond lilies of
several varieties and hue.
Mr. Domerich has been of great service in the promotion
of an Audubon Society for the protection of birds in
Florida, and is a patron of the town library and one of its
officers.

WALTER DRENNEN’ S SANDSPUR GROVE.
“ THE SANDSPUR GROVE”
OW N E D BY W A L T E R D R E N N E N
On the shores of Lakes Faith, Hope
and Charity there is one of the largest
orange grovqs in this section. Known
far and widfc as “ The Sandspur Grove,”
and once tfcq pride of the late Dr. Henkel,
who^sold it a year or more ago to
Mr. WalteTT^tf-enneii, it covers all together
205 acres, 145 acres of which
are in large bearing trees.
It is simply bewildering to attempt
to traverse this large area of trees, ladened
with the golden fruit. Here are
5,000 orange -trees, 3,000 grapefruit and
500 tangerine trees. The ground being
flat, there is no way to give an adequate
photographic idea of the property.
The long photograph above gives
a bird’s-ej^e view of about half of the
length of the groves, viewed
distance, embracing an angle
degrees, whereas the average
graph takes in but 75 degrees.
The smaller photograph,
gives a very good idea of the beautiful i
entrance through the property between i
the rows of bearing trees.
This grove has seen some prosper- j
ous days in the past, but under .■ifesl
capable and intelligent management •>
Mr. Drennen, the present propriety
it bids fair to surpass in the futun —
record of other years.

GALLOWAY AND SON, MERCHANTS.
Maitland does not profess to be a great business center, but there are
several merchandising establishments and among them that of Messrs. Galloway
and Sons. It is the only store we were privileged to photograph, and
occupies a prominent location on the main road fronting the Atlantic Coast
Line railroad. The Galloways are comfortably situated and are an essential
feature in the business life of Maitland.

MRS. E. MASSEY’ S RESIDENCE.
What
)LiiAhord^ms/had a past. General
Grant, oi^ his Florida trip, said that
Maitland was the most beautiful spot
he had seen. Its beauty has not vanished.
It is still an ideal spot. It is
not made enough of. Its citizens are
quite content and happy.
But in truth, there is here one of the
greatest opportunities for a line downto-
date tourist hotel, with a manager
who has some conception of the possibilities
of the place, a spirit of modern
advancement about him and the capacity
for taking care of people.
Think of what such a place would
be on some point on Lake Maitland,
where tlu scenery is at its best and
where the broad lake would stretch
before one with plenty of opportunity
for the pastime of boating, etc.
If some capitalist could be encouraged
to go into this there would be a
great stir in old Maitland and whereas
a few hundred persons enjoy the beauty
of the place during the winter,
thousands of happy folks would throng
her streets.
H. A. B R IE N IN G ’S H OM E .
United States Mail Carriers are constantly
on the go but they must have a
home somewhere. Mr. H. A. Briening
elected to make a home in this place
and has a comfortable house in a cool
location on the public road, well suited
to his business.
RESIDENCE OF MISSES DART.
Misses Emma and Mary Dart own a beautiful residence in Maitland, and
for years the family has been closely identified with the social and intellectual
interests of the place. The ladies have been among the state’ s ablest and most
honored educators, having had charge of some of the most important schools
in Orange and other counties. For several years they superintended the
Apopka schools, and in relinquishing the work this year for a period of rest,
the schools of the county are loosers.
The Misses Dart are spending the summer in Canada and we understand
their home in Maitland is for sale.
H. A. BRIENING’ S HOME.
INDUSTRIES.
Essentially a residence section and largely a winter
resort, the industrial feature has perhaps taken second
place in Maitland.
The residents have mostly been persons of means
who do not depend upon anything grown or produced in
the neighborhood.
Thus far, there has been no market gardening but
the fruit industry ranks high. Oranges and fruit are
staple crops, unfailing and high class. There are many
fine groves within and about the town limits. The
shores of Lake Maitland particularly contain several extensive
groves wThile the other lakesides add largely to
the output.
Grapes have been and are still grown extensively.
Some of the finest table grapes in the state are raised
hereabout and so adapted is this immediate section to
grape growing that there is no doubt but if attention
were turned to that industry good prices could be obtained
in northern markets. As it is, the home markets
consume the product at 10 cents per quart.
Experiments have been made with several nut
growing trees and with olives, the former a success but
not so with the latter.
POSTOFFICE.
The Postmaster at Maitland has gone to considerable more trouble and
expense than usual in a small community to provide a neat and convenient
building for postoffice purposes. The office is located on the corner of the
principal streets, well shaded by immense oaks, and presents an inviting
appearance. Postmaster Harris Doyle is a stirring man for the place.
MRS. MASSEY'S RESIDENCE
Situated high up on a sightly knoll fronted by
Lakes Faith, Hope and Charity, and a lake in the rear,
is the large and beautiful residence of Mrs. E. M. Massey,
who bought the place a few years ago and has greatly
improved the house and surroundings.
Commanding a view in every direction, and on the
main road between Orlando and Sanford, it is a noted
land-mark to all who pass that way.
One is fortunate indeed if he may sit upon the
broad verandas enjoying the magnificent view and the
invigorating air that the elevation commands, and if he
can get a glimpse of “ The Three Graces” from the
third floor window he will be doubly thankful for an
opportunity to rise above the ordinary flats of Florida.
MRS. TU R N E R ’S P R O P ER TY .
The name of Turner is a familiar one
in the history of Maitland.
The late Mr. Turner came to the
place thirty-odd years ago, and opened
one of the first stores for the sale of
general merchandise, which business
he followed for years.
The Turner residence is very near
the station on one of the most beautiful
streets. The house stands in a fiveacre
lot, pleasantly back from the
street, allowing ample space for the
ornamental trees and shrubs which
makes this place so attractive.
An orange grove of" 300 trees surrounds
the house on three sides, and a
little woodsy land at the back is left to
- nature. Mrs. Turner owns various
other properties in Maitland.
P O IN S E T T A PLACE.
Mrs. L. P. Bronsou comes from Marquette,
Mich., every winter and remains
until late summer at her attractive
home, Poinsetta Place, being one
of several fine winter homes fronting
one of the handsome^ shaded streets
of the town.
This is one of Maitland’ s beauty
spots; the shrub, flowers and rare trees
surrounding the house lending great
beauty and charm.
T H E P R E S B Y T ER IA N C H U R C H .
MA.T. J. S. SIMMONS’ HOME.
hot thirty-five years Major J. S. Simmons has ca'led Maitland his home.
Being himself now seventy-five years of age he has lived to see the place and
surroundings grow from almost nothing to one of the most fruitful and
beautiful localities in Florida. The Major has devoted all this time to orange
growing and business^and is about the best known man in all this section.
The Presbyterian Church of Maitland
was organized in 1883 and has been a
factor of importance in this religious
community.
The present elders are Major J. S.
Simmons and G. E. Hudson and the
deacons, Wm. Pringle and J. H. Bear.
S. B. h il l ’ s home.
Mr. S. B. Hill graduated from the East Florida Seminary, attended Vanderbilt
University and fitted himself for the law and was admitted to practice
but preferred to follow orange growing and merchandising. He has
something like 18 acres in orange groves and conducts a large general store.
Hi - new residence is a handsome structure and a pleasant home for his
wife and family of three daughters and one son.

graves are irrigated by iThproven
ods. He is a Cm ken fancier, having
several valuable strains.
Also he takes pride in raising a fine
breed of hogs. Both are represented
in the picture made in front of his
house on the lake side.
A. A. S T O N E ’S O R A N G E GROVE
PINEYCROFT.
Mr. John McCollough recently built his fine modern residence, overlooking
Lake Maitland, coming from Minneapolis. He has a large estate here covering
about 185 acres, 25 acres of which are in orange groves. This is one of
the most beautiful locations on the lake.
A. A. Stone and son are the owners of
a fine twenty-five-acre grove comprising
almost every known variety of
citrus fruit. They have made a specialty
of King and Tangerine varieties in
the thin skin oranges and Pineapple in
the regular fruit. They are also specialists
in fine grapefruit, nearly all the
trees in their grove being budded to
the very finest. They were among the
first orange growers in the county to
have a large show of bearing trees succeeding
the great freeze.
Mr. Stone has been in Florida for
the past twenty-eight years and is
located near to Lakes Faith, Hope and
Charity, a very choice location. There
are two comfortable two-story houses
on the place, a large barn, an irrigating
plant, and almost every variety of
fruit, besides grapes, pecans, etc.
The Messrs. Stone are well known
men of character and stability.
“ C H A D B O U R N E H A L L . ”
Chadbourne Hall is a beautiful place
located on a sightly knoll on Lake
Catherine. E. P. Boynton and family
have been coming to this pleasant wintering
spot from their Boston home for
the past twenty years and it holds out
as many delightful charms now as
ever.
A G R E A T O P P OR TU N ITY .*
The Turner property is for sale as
Mrs. Turner does not wish to care for
so much.
The home place contains five acres
and includes the house as pictured in
another column. Grove of 300 trees,
barn, large two story store and a market-
house. A small piece of wild land
borders the grove.
Another five-acre lot set with 300 orange,
grapefruit and tangerine trees
and which contains a small cottage will

So far as The Citizen is concerned,
it has been a “ good old summer
time,” sure enough. When an
editor undertakes to get up a series
of articles covering the county, and
does his own photographing and
everything pertaining to the job,
he is plumb sure to have a good
hot old time of it.
But every time we hand out one
of our “ extras” we feel the game
is worth the candle and that notwithstanding
the trouble and the
cost, we have put on record a good
work.
Thus far we have illustrated
Winter Garden, Oakland, Apopka,
Lake Sue, and now we take pleasure
in producing Maitland.
Our next venture will be Zellwood
and that great Lake Apopka
region recently acquired by the
Florida Orange and Truck Farms
Company and now being opened
for settlement.
Following that will be the most
complete of-the whole series, a
magnificent picture gallery of beautiful
Winter Park.
We have also under way several
Orlando sections, which are so far
along that it is only a matter of
getting the work out, but we feel
that there is plenty of time between
now and winter to perspire over
the job.
pie and we believe’that this generous
spirit has gone far to make for
its success as a whole.
We would not have it said of us,
as we have heard of others: “ That
town is all made up of factions and
cliques, constantly at war with
each other.”
Good Lord, deliver us!
C O N V IC T L E A S E .
Anybody who doubts the wisdom
of abolishing State Convict Lease
and turning the convicts into state
road builders, should study the situation
in Georgia, says the Tampa
Tribune, quoting the Atlanta Constitution.
It is shown that there are now
131 counties working ^convict^ on
the public rbads and that since the
abolition of the lease system in
1909 the death rate among the convicts
has decreased appreciably.
Orlando Citizen : A letter from
Cromwell Gibbons, of Jacksonville,
informs us of his candidacy for
governor. The letter is on file and
we are waiting until the lists are
full. The Citizen will be for a
strictly anti-convict lease man and
will work to that end, as other papers
in state will do.
Now Y o u ’ re T a l k in g .—Tampa
Tribune.
That short sentence sounds good
to us. Not that we are so much
pleased with our talk, but that the
Tribune sounds out loud enough
to be heard. Gibbons may be all
right, Trammell may be the man,
Angle may do, some other may be
better. We don’ t care where he
hails from, so he is a good man
and stands flat footed against convict
lease. We’ re tired of platitudes
from “ Three Wise Monkeys.”

ORLANDO.
LIVE A N D L E T LIVE.
Orlando has as much of the spirit
of “ Live and let live” as any
other city of its size. Perhaps the
new blood constantly being infused
into it does not permit the old
blood to become envious and hateful.
True, there may be a poor, narrow
individual, here and there, who
would rather kill the chance of his
neighbor’ s securing a share of life
than in any way add to it. But for
the most part, Orlando is free from
factions, whose business it might
be to destroy the chance of another,
add as a rule its business men are
generous and fair-minded to each
other.
We have always held to the idea
that unless provoked by the evident
hostility of another, it were
better for one’ s business to attend
Strictly to paddling his own little
canoe, rather than try to run across
anothers’ course.
The man who cannot strike cut
on a line distinct and successfully,
deserves defeat, even though he
may also deserve one’ s pity. Individuality
in any line and a determination
to hand out the best
goods, the best product of the hand
or brain, is bound to tell, and the
man or the firm who does this has
no room in his life for petty jealousy
or envy of the little his neighbor
manages to wrest or sneak out
of life.
A man may compete without the
cultivation of a rancorous spirit toward
his competitor, and there is
such a thing as living at one’ s
level best and yet letting the other
fellow live.
As we have said, Orlando is
mostly made up of this sort of peo-
It has left an impression as of a remarkably
vivid scenic moving picture
creation; clean streets; g 1 e a m i n g
buildings embowered in profusion of
thick shade; gardens of palms and flowers;
orange groves, amid the dark
green foliage of which flamed here and
there surviving bits of golden fruit;
symmetrical lakes (fourteen within
the limits of the town) of clear, placid
water which added doubly to the surrounding
beauty, as every object on
the circling shore was mirrored in the
tranquil sea: roads of clay and sand
and macadam, bending to fit the curve
of a shore or winding to thread the
tangle of virgin woods festooned with
moss; and autos, autos to suit the luring
highways. For the size of the
town (Orlando has a population of
nearly eight thousand) it is said that
there are more automobiles here than
in any other place in Florida. The
people were cordial, hospitable, wellto-
do, and resourceful in the entertainment
of their Conference guests.—Editor

Cotton Growing.
A great deal of interest is awakened
in the question as to whether cotton
can be made a staple crop in Florida,
and by the efforts of the Board of
Trade of Orlando a meeting was arranged
for in Apopka for the 26th of
this month. The day will be one of
interest both as a visit to the town of
Apopka and in viewing the large acreage
of cotton growing there this year.
Those who have seen it speak in glowing
terms of the success so far and the
possibilities of it for the farmer in connection
with other things. The man
who puts all his eggs in one basket
makes a mistake. The farmer of today,
and especially the Florida farmer,
should raise a variety of crops,
then if one fails, some of the others
will furnish him his living.
Cotton raising is no new thing for
Orange county nor for the Park.
Along in 1880 to 1890 there were acres
of it raised about here and a cotton
gin was built between the Park and
Orlando. It is said by those who saw
the cotton growing, that the product
of an acre was equal to that of Georgia
and the quality as good if not better.
Men who have made a careful estimate
say that the net income from an
acre of cotton will be between $40 and
$60, the gross not being over from $50
to $75. This is probably a conservative
estimate and there are possible
conditions of soil and location which
would increase this net income. It is
easy to count chickens before they are
hatched, but any man with ten acres
of cotton, five acres of an orange and
grapefruit grove and a good garden
spot for his house supplies, can easily
count on an income of from $1,000 to
$1,500 per year net. This means that
a man must hustle, watch every opportunity
both in growing, harvesting and
marketing his product! We are hoping
that many of the farmers and citizens
of the Park will attend the Apopka
meeting, see the cotton growing,
hear what is to be said and enjoy the
barbecue provided.
Mr. M. M. Smith spent last Friday
night in Oviedo, with Mr. and Mrs.
Harvey Moore. Mr. Smith has large
business interests in and about Oviedo
and still larger interests in the eastern
part of the county bordering on the
Econlockhatchie and St. Johns rivers.
Few men in this world come to the
time in life when they feel like laying
down the more active duties with as
fine a record as that of Dr. Thomas
Rakestraw Baker, who has closed his
work with Rollins and left the Park
for Chicago. Twenty years of conscientious
service at Rollins has given
Dr. Baker a reputation second to none.
Hundreds of students who have passed
under his instruction and in touch
with his noble character, have cause
to be thankful for that opportunity.
As a citizen in Winter Park Dr. Baker
has fully supported all the best interests
and leaves with every one a friend.
We regret his leaving but memory
will always hold him dear and a hearty
welcome will be his whenever he
returns. He will for the present make
his home with his son, Norman Lockyer
Baker, who is a civil engineer in
Chicago and his address will be 212
West 51st Ave, Chicago, 111.
Argument waxed warm in the Park
one evening last week when the tariff
and other questions were under discussion.
The neighbors rolled over in
bed to listen and some of them went to
take part in the fray. One wanted
tariff for revenue only but wanted
Florida oranges and other fruit protected
by a special tax against Cuban
and Portorican fruit, another didn’ t
want a tariff and if Florida fruit was
knocked out would go to raising peanuts,
and so it went on until it developed
that all of them wanted a fair
tariff and none of them would be without
a tariff of some kind. Well it was
grand to listen to the coming orators
.whose voices rose on the evening air.
The best of it was that all was serene
and pleasant all through, and at its
close every one agreed excepting the
other fellow and all went to bed happy,
each one thinking they had scored a
victory. Now we submit that this is a
fair summary of tariff discussions all
over the country. Meanwhile the tariff
question is settling itself through
the better judgment of both parties
for there is a modicum of common
sense left in the country to save the
day.
Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Hale are made
happy by the advent of another voter
on the Winter Park list. He is hale
and hearty and congratulations are in
order.
Mrs. C. D. Powell returned last Friday
evening from her visit in Coleman
and vicinity among old friends. Mr.
Powell went over with her but returned
home early in the week.
Mrs. Sarah A. Burke is spending a
week at Coronada Beach, enjoying the
ocean breezes and trying salt water
bathing. There is nothing like it to
put the roses on ones cheeks, without
it is a good snow ball well rubbed in.
The large piece of ground on Livingston
avenue has been mowed and
raked and the pine straw used to repair
the road on the avenue. This
ground belongs to • Metcalf Bros., of
Chicago, and it is their intention to
build upon it some day soon. It will
make a good building spot as it looks
out over Lake Virginia on the south.
Mr. L. H. Roberts left early Wednesday
morning last, on the midnight
train for Stony Brook, N. Y. His sons
and Miss Margaret Dunham went with
him. Miss Dunham going to her home
in Basking Ridge, N. J. Mr. Roberts
will spend a couple of months with his
mother, who has a fine home on the
Long Island shore, and return to the
Park about the time of college opening.
It is not generally known that Hon.
Henry S. Chubb was highly honored
at the time of President and Mrs. William
H. Taft’ s silver wedding by an
invitation. This invitation Mr. Chubb
is to have framed so that it can be
handed down to his children’ s children.
Leland Jr., is sure to get it in time to
show to his little folks. This notice of
one of our valued Park citizens is appreciated
and we congratulate him
upon the possession of such an invitation.
We notice an account of the passing
of Mrs. J. C. Stineman, in last weeks
issue, at South Fork, Pa., where they
have a beautiful country home. Mr.
and Mrs. Stineman were in the Park in
May, the day they were to start for the
north and friends here will be sorry to
learn this sad news. The Stineman
home at the “ Ripples,” on the east
road to Orlando is one of the most delightful
Villas in the Park. Our hearty
sympathy goes out to Mr. Stineman
and the remaining members of the
family.
F. W. Shepherd has looped the loop
and returned to the Park. Mrs. Shepherd
is with her mother in Virginia and
will stay several weeks longer. Mr.
Shepherd attended several sessions of
the National Convention of the Christian
Endeavor Society at Atlantic City.
The Convention was held in a large
auditorium on the million dollar pier, a
delightful place for such a gathering
during the heated spell of that week.
He estimates that there were about
four thousand in attendance the evening
he was there. Mr. Shepherd holds
important positions in the city, being a
member of the City Council aud President
of the Winter Park Fruit Co.
Among the many changes in the
Park, in the way of improvement, during
the past year, is the clearing of
the property owned by Mr. C. H.
Morse, on Lake Osceola, at the northern
end of Puloiver Circle. It is a
revelation to many who did not appreciate
the beauty of the site. All the
scrub, pine stumps and general debris,
has been removed and it is today one
of the most inviting spots on any of
our lakes. This is another evidence
of the interest which Mr. Morse is taking
in our town improvement and
adornment. The triangular piece directly
across from this property be->
tween Pulsifer Circle and Webster
avenue, Mr. Morse has given to the
city for one of its parks. This-triangle
Mr. Morse is having fenced and
when Webster avenue is clayed as it is
expected will be done, it will all add
to the attraction of this portion of
Winter Park.
Winter Park Fruit Co.
Another orange packing season will
soon be with us and we call especial
attention to the arrangements made for
it in the Park. They are about ideal
and should be thoroughly appreciated
by every grower in this vicinity. There
will be no change in the methods of
sorting, packing and shipping at the
Winter Park Fruit Company Packing
House, but every effort will be made to
maintain the reputation gained during
the past two years when the house and
business was operated and conducted
by the Wilcardo Fruit Co. The fruit
from the Association connected with
the Florida Citrus Exchange will be
packed by the Winter Park Fruit Co.,
and fruit from independent groves will
be received and packed with the same
care.
We are informed that anyone who
desires to have an independent pack
can ship under their own brand if they
desire to do so. The company have
secured the services of Mr. Harold
Bourne as Manager, and this will insure
good work as Mr. Bourne has been associated
with the packing house since
it was built and is familiar with all the
details of the business. He has shown
himself a capable manager, always
watchful of the individual growers interest
as well as fchrfse of the company.
With Commodore G. L. Dyer as president
and Mr. Bourne as General Manager
of the Winter Park Fruit Co.,
there will surely be every reason for
confidence in the company.
The Winter Park Fruit Growers Association,
Mr. F. W. Shepherd President,
has decided to pool all their interests
for the coming season is well
received and will largely increase the
membership. We printed a copy of
the notice sent out by the Manager telling
of the decision to pool and stating
that there would be three pools, the
first for early December fruit, December
10th, second from December 11th
to February 10th, and third from February
11th to close of season. Anyone
acquainted with the run o f the markets
the past seasons will see the fairness
of this arrangement. It is a mutual
insurance as to the price to be received
and a guarantee of equal sharing in the
prices obtained. We feel sure that if
this is understood by the growers of
Winter Park and vicinity, there will be
no hesitation in joining the Association,
and so HecdmTiiTg Yffc'mmirs of the Florida
Citrus Exchange^
We would call especial attention to
the article in last weeks issue, written
by Commodore G. L. Dyer, headed
; Winter Park Fruit Growers Associaion.”
Some ihiiK- said should be repeated
and studied ;refully.
He says: “ A? ooon as the California
Citrus Exchange got on its feet, citrus
property in that state began to take on
standard values, and could be sold at a
price based on its actual productivity.
Here the value of citrus bearing property
is capricious and will continue to
be until the Exchange contract- a majority
of the fruit in the state.”
One of the valuable assets to Florida
is its Citrus Fruit bearing groves.
Anything which will give them stability
and fix a firm basis of values is
worth considering. This we believe
the Florida Citrus Exchange can and
will do. We note that Commodore
Dyer added, “ It is evident from the
sales taking place all over the state,
that this desired condition is arriving
aud it is due, so far. to the success of
the Exchange. It will come more rapidly
when pooling is general.”
A letter from Mr. F. W. Howard,
Belding’ Mich., reports that Miss Mabel
and her mother, who have spent
two winters in the Park, have been
well since they went north, but the
severe heat and sudden change has
brought Miss Mabel “ somewhat under
the weather at the present time.”
They are kindly remembered by friends
in the Park, who expect to see them
again another winter.
An item of news which will be of interest
to every citizen of the Park was
received last Friday. Mr. C. H. Morse
of Winter Park, and Mrs. Helen Piffard
were married in New Haven, at
the home of the brides sister, Mrs. W.
W. Farnum, at noon that day. The
marriage was a quiet one, only members
of the two families being invited.
Mr. and Mrs. Morse are now on the
Ocean, on the Steamer Olympic, and
will spend three months abroad. Many
in the Park became acquainted with
Mrs. Morse who was here for several
months last winter as Mrs. Piffard and
all wish them bon-voyage, a pleasant
trip on the continent and safe return
' to home and country. Mrs. Morse is a
' cousin of Mrs. G. L. Dyer, which adds
to the interest. Heartiest congratula-
I tions are extended to them both.

Orlando Irrigated Farms Company.
The above Company has secured 600 acres of the very finest farm and fruit lands adjacent to Orlando and has cleared out streets north and south, east
and west and sub-divided this vast tract into five acre farms at prices ranging from $100 to $200 per acre, according to location.
A #12,000 water plant has been contracted for with a double set of engines and pumps and an ample capacity elevated tank, sufficient to supply a maximum
of 600 gallons per minute. An inexhaustable supply of pure, soft water is at hand and will be piped from the pumping station to all the streets in the tract
in eight inch pipes, when it mav be extended any where on the tract. Thus, each purchaser of a five acre farm becomes a part owner in the water plant, which
will be turned over to the people on the tract as soon as a sufficient number of places have been sold; meanwhile it will be operated by the company under a guarantee.
The chief advantages are: Plenty of room; Reasonable prices; Pure soft water; Irrigation; On public roads; On City line; But no City taxes; Best of soil;
No waste land.
For business men, clerks and workmen this opens up a most attractive opportunity for a fine home place near to the city and with every possible convenience,
where one can place improvements on his own home at odd times and gradually make of it what he wills. While this fine proposition is open to all people,
at home or abroad, it is confidently expected that home people will be ready investors.
See This Splendid Tract. Note That It Has been Tried Out. The Finest Orange Grove is Upon It and For Thirty Years a Portion of it Has Been Successfully
Farmed. ORLANDO IRRIGATED FARMS COMPANY.

Ideal Fertilizers

To gain a place on our regular lists a formula must not only'
produce results, but results with a PR O F I T . The user of fertilizer
considers the effect on his pocketbook the REAL result.
ID E A L F E R T I L IZ E R produces the right effect, for it works
with nature. The preference of each class of vegetables for its
source of plant food is carefully studied as well as the proper proportions
to give perfect balance—no Jack, no waste.
With proper applications of proper food, vegetation outgrows
diseases and insects to a great extent, and being strong and vigorous,
produces fruit that is pleasing to the grower.
Do not lose the maximum profit due you by using poorly balanced
plant food from improper sources.
