The Folk County Informant, a Florida paper, just received here, pays the following tribute to H. C. Clark, who has been running a market garden there this winter and who returns to Michigan the last of April: One of the most interesting feature of Bartow or vicinity is the ten-acr truck garden of H. C. Clark, at the east edge of the town. A careful survey of this small tract with an estimate of it? probable yield in current f unds of the United States is certainly an eyeopener to soaae of our people whe have been for years past wearing out steps and pantaloons slmultaneously while their throats have grown chronically hoarse in bawling "hard times." The Informant has, for lo! these many months, been preaching the gospel of labor. It has been continually met by the assertion that labor on the land does not pay. The Informant believes different and imported a man who knew the value of labor and knew how to labor to prove its theory that labor would pay. There is not a man, woman or child in South Florida who can view the result of thi gentleman's labor and deny that labor will pay and pay largely. Idleness, shiïtlessness or perfunctory labor will not pay and we never contended that it would. it is freely admitted that high pine land is the poorest in the country for truck-growing and yet here is the proof that a man may make a fortune on high pine land. In GocTs name, men of Polk County, go to work.
