FLORIDA'S MOST SUCCESSFUL
FARM COLONY. '
By Clement Yore.
I have Just returned from a tour.orer
the btate of Florida. I left Chicago on the
in of March and nowhere did I see
preparations for spring planting or ac
tivity upon the farms until I arrived in
Florida- on the morning of the 8tlu
I went through Florida, and I saw as I
looked from the car windows the fields
green witn growing crops and men and
women working In thmie fields In the very
lightest or summer apparel.
I was on mission of inspection to the
Burbank-Ocala .colony, located in Marion
County. Florida. Mind you. this colony
Is but SO days old. and It Is not reasonable
to suppose that one could see much de
velopment there, but this Is what I found.
I learned from the officials in charge of
the colony that the land was more than
three-quarters sold, that the settlers and
prospective settlers were arriving at the
ratio of from 20 to 30 a day. I went out
to the colony on the line of the new rail
road, which has been built especially to
penetrate through the heart of this col
ony, and which connects with the Sea
board Air Line and the Atlantic Coast
line nt Ocala.
Upon both sides of this railroad as 1
rode through the colony. I saw fields In
cultivation, new houses built and being
built, men busily encaped In clearing the
land to make It ready for the plow, and 1
talked with many of these settlers anc
found a universal endorsement, both ol
the soil and the possibilities of this great
I saw many spots in Florida In the
course of my threw w-eka stav In tlmr
state, end I saw why it Is that upon Just
a few ncres of ground one can earn an In
dependint llvlne. with half the toil nec
essary in the ordinary pursuits of life, but
In all of my travels I am very frank to
ay that I. believe I liked the Bnrbank
pcala -olony better than any spot I saw
Burbank-Ocala colony Is building ery
fast, and It Is almost Impossible In so
short a space to tell how great is this
The land lies In the center of Marlon
County, which Is the banner countv of
the state. It Is touched upon both sides
by great railroad systems, and with ex
cellent transportation through the heart
Of the colony with a railroad which con
nects wlh these systems, while the Ock
Iawaha river runs the entire length of the
eastern border of the rolonv. thus af
fording water transportation with the sea.
The New South Farm & Home Company
has prepared a niece of liter-iture which
they have called "Ten Acres and Free,
dom." Tills book comprises sorue 80.000
words, and Is fll'ed from cover to cover
with actual phntocmnhle reproductions,
end Is bevond question of a doubt one
of the b.-st p'es of literature ever pub
lished upon Florida.
My advice to any man or woman who Is
eeekine an invement In farm lands,
especially in Florida. Is to read this great
book before you make up your mind defi
nitely where to locate. Just send the

The story opens with the Introduction
of John Stephens, adventurer, a Massa
chusetts man marooned by authorities at
Aalparaiso. Chile. Being interested In
mining operations In Bolivia, he was de
nounced by Chile as an insurrectionist
and as a consequence was hiding. At his
hotel Ms attention was attracted by an
hnitlsniiian and a youn? woman.
Stephens rescued the voung woman from
a drunken officer. He was thanked by

When any person remarks about the

many friends to use it for themselves

this affair, I am sure, for now we

How quickly her gray eyes light
ed up. her hands instantly clasping
"Homeward bound. Mr. Stephens!
Have we already attained the spot
sought in this sea? Was there noth
ing discovered there as a reward for
all this long voyage?"
"No. we are not yet there, but I
have determined upon turning back.
I can not take you any farther into
"But why? why? Is the peril so
terribly desperate? How much far
ther south must we go?"
"With fair luck, the wind holding
as it Is. we might attain the position
to-morrow. Tis not a long run: but.
Lady Darlington. I am afraid to risk it.
The slightest slant of wind will bring
the ice crashing down upon us. We
are under Damocles' sword, suspend
ed by a hair. This Is the beginning
of winter In these latutudes of fierce
gales from the south sweeping across
leagues of frozen waters. We have
been wonderfully fortunate thus far,
yet. a single day. ay, a single hour,
might seal our fate, hemming us In be
yond any possibility of escape. I
might take the chance if we were all
mere adventurers on board, but I dare
not trifle any longer with your life."
"I I am not that kind of a coward.
Mr. Stephens. You you owe it to
those men to push on, now we are so
near their goal. You have pledged
them your word, and and I want you
to keep It"
The companion-door slid back, and
a man came heavily down the steps.
As he caught sight of us he pulled off
bis cap awkwardly.
"Mr. De Nova sent me to call you,

Within a Minute De Nova Had Joined Me, Hla Eyea Still Heavy with Sleep.
In Which We Attain 66 XT South.
When morning arrived tho Sea
Queen was plunging through an an
gry sea. in the midst of a raging
snow storm Which effectually con
cealed all our Immediate surroundings.
With vivid remembrance of those vast
Ice fields lying off our starboard quar
ter, and the certainty that numerous
bergs were drifting not far ahead, we
were compelled to slow down our en
gines, feeling a way cautiously through
the white fog. The Ice-cakes buffeting
our bows, and scraping along the sides,
were a constant menace, requiring
men to fend them off so as to keep
rudder and screw uninjured; the
mainsail had broken loose from its
gaskets, and, frozen stiff as the heavy
j canvas was, proved difficult to secure:
wniie ine ice on our forward deck
had accumulated to such a thickness
It was not far from noon when the
heavy snow-clouds broke and went
scurrying away like a flock of birds,
leaving the wide sweep of waters
clear to our view, with a yellow sun
hanging cold in the pale blue of the
I hardly knew where we were, not
feeling at all certain about the extent
of our drift during the past 24 hours,
and so hastily brought my instruments
on deck and shot the sun. stepping in
to the chart house to figure out our
rosition. The result sent a sudden
thrill of exultation through me.
"We ha-e attained the spot!" I ex-
clakncd. as I glanced up, and saw
her gazing in at me through the open
door. "Now we will ascertain the
truth of Tuttle's vision."
"The spot? Do you mean this Is
the point of sea we have been seek
"Ay! and now, thank God! w can
head the other way."
I sprang eagerly past her, clinging
to a lire-line so as to keep my feet
on the deck, too thoroughly excited
by my discovery to remain any long
er in idleness.
"Johnson, run below, and call Mr.
De Nova. Have him turn out at
I watched the fellow slide to the
companion, and made my own way to
the bridge, sweeping my glasses anx
iously about the clearing horizon.
Within a minute De Nova had joined
me. his eyes still heavy from sleep.
"Mr. De Nova," I said, rapidly, my
gloved hand sweeping a semicircle in
our front, "I have just taken an ob
servation, and this Is latitude 669 17'
south and longitude HO9 30' wesL
Send your sharpest eyed lookout to the
foretopsail yard with these glasses.
Then call all bands."
He went down the bridge stairs
as though shot from a gun, and a
moment later a young seaman named
Symes was swiftly footing the rat
lines, their coating of Ice breaking un
der his tread and rattling on the deck
below. The men swarmed out from the
forecastle and up the main batch, rang
ing themselves about the foot of the.
foremast, watching me eagerly, and
occasionally peering up at Symes, now
well above the cross-trees.
"Lads," I cried, bending over the
rail of the bridge, and staring down in
to their upturned faces "I've just
figured out oar position, and this is
the spot we've been hunting after In
these seas. I've sent Symes aloft to
look out for Tuttle'a Island. If there's
any land in sight, well and good;
we'll have a try for looting the Donna
Isabel of those Spanish pesos. But if
not. then we'll call It a wild goose
chase, and the Sea Queen points her

tempt at a cheer, which ended In a
muttering or oaths and a shuffling of
feet on the icy planks. The glances
of the fellows turned upward toward
symes, now securely posted on the
foretopsail yard, the glasses to his
eyes. One or two among them, in
cluding Anderson, clambered to the
t-'p of the forecastle where they could

"Principally because I say so, An

"But we don't any of us know any
thing about that!"
"True enough, but there happens
to be one en board who can figure it
out for you If you doubt my word.
Lady Darlington can do it"
The rising medley of growling voices
ceased almost instantly, and If I had
felt any question as to what her lady
ship would do It was Immediately si
lenced. She slipped to the rail or the
stairs, her hood thrown back, her hair
blowing in the wind.
"I I believe thoroughly in Mr. Ste
phens," she said, clearly, "but It is
true that I know something or naviga
tion, and ir you really doubt his state
ment I will figure it out for you."
"Now you hear that, lads," my
voice ringing out stern over tho hub
bub. "You'll believe this lady If her
results are the same as mine. Now
stop your growling."
I hollowed my hands for a hail
"What do you pick up, Symes?"
His words came back in a thread
of sound as he looked down upon us
from his bobbing perch.
"Not very much, sir, except water.
There's a hell or a big field o' ice
out yonder," pointing with one hand,
the other gripping the spar, "but it's
mostly flat, an' all glistenin' with
snow. There's maybe a dozen bergs
ahead an off the port quarter, mostly
medium size, but with the devil of a
big fellow a point or so to the north."
"Not a sign, sir, unless that's It I
take for a big berg. The shadows look
dark enough for rock."
"Ease her off two points, wheel
man." "Two points It is, sir."
We stood there, silent and motion
less, waiting anxiously, the men
ranged along the rail, with their eyes
all turned forward. I rang for full
speed, and the Sea Queen fairly
leaped ahead through the ley smoth
er, .flinging clouds of white spray over
the heedless figures. Within ten min-
Iooked upon so gigantic and majestic
a mountain of Ice. It was one im
mense cliff towering into the upper
air, being fully 300 feet high, and not
less than 1.200 feet la length, with
vast glittering pinnacles rising still
farther Into the sky, its entire front
a sheer precipice, gleaming in cold
blue, with -hardly a darker shadow

clung to his perch aloft with the grip
or a monkey, swinging back and forth
to the wild swaying of the spar. Sud

"There's wind comin from the
"Looks to be a stiff breeze, an'
it's bringing more snow."
"Lay down from aloft."
I sprang over to consult the binnacle-card,
and then cast one swift,
comprehending glance at the thicken
ing gloom in the southwest. Beyond
doubt the change had come.
"Give her two more points north,
wheelsman: keep her head nor'east
by nor' steady so. Mr. De Nova,
send another man up here to the
wheel. All hands now; stow every
thing: tail on to those gaskets lively,
my lads: we're in for a blow, and a
run for our lives."
To my amazement scarcely a man
among them stirred, the eyes of the
majority turning toward Anderson.
Evidently there was an understanding
between them; they Intended to revolt
and had chosen him their leader. He
stood just in front of the forecastle,
a lumping big figure in his heavy
clothes, his coarse face and ugly jaw
showing beneath a fur cap.
"What yer turnin' north for In such
a hurry. Mr. Stephens?" he growled,
hoarsely. "It's not by vote o the
crew, an we're the ones that's got

keepln along this line o latitude
for a day or so anyhow. Tuttle might
'a got his Aggers tangled an missed a
few leagues. Anvhow. wo want the
lady to give us her reckoning first."
I felt the hot blood leap to my face,
and my teeth clenched as I leaned
over the rail gazing down at him.
"Lads." I said, striving to master
mj-self. "I've put you exactly where
I promised I would; I've shown you all
that was here. You can see for your
selves what will happen if we hold on
any longer. The wind has swept
around; it Is going to bring that whole
pack of Ice down on us. We've got to
run for It, or be crushed. Now what
I want to know Is, are you with me.
or with Bill Anderson?"
They held off muttering. y casting
uneasy glances over the rail. Ander
son stamped angrily on the deck.
"Oh, to hell with yer fine words."
he said, grimly. "What if the wind
has changed a hit? Can't we beat
off the floe under steam the same as
we did before? We're sailor-men, and
not afraid of a rough sea. For one, I'm
damned if I leave that gold to rot
here without huntin for it."
Words were clearly useless, and I
ripped back my heavy coat, dragging
off my gloves, all patience exhausted.
"Come on, De Nova," I exclaimed,
"you've got sense enough to realize
what this means."
I was over the rail with a leap, front
ing them on the deck. Almost to' my
surprise the creole landed beside me.
and without a word we struck out at
the heads In our front. It was a fierce
mix-up for a minute, yet only a man or
two stood with Anderson, the sud
denness of our assault taking all the
fight out of most of them. I struck
Big Bill twice squarely in the face,
driving him back against the steps
leading to the forecastle deck; over
these he fell sprawling, his head
thumping the plank. The next instant I
I had De Nova's antagonists in the
rear, and together we laid them out
against the rail, and none too gently.
