Mr. D. W. Adams tells the Florida Dispatch:

"Last spring I grew a field of squashes, and made a shipment which sold for $1 per crate, which I consider a very fair price. It is as large a price as that vegetable can bear without placing it out of the reach of the great body of consumers. At a higher price the quantity consumed must be comparatively small. Now this is the way my account stood at the end of the shipment:

The moral of which is, that it will be best to bring a Boston to Florida, and save the freight charges.
