     The surface of the State is low and flat, rising from a few feet above the sea level to about 300 feet. Open grass-grown savannahs, cypress swamps, pine forests and cabbage hummocks abound on the flat coast lands. The southern peninsula is built of coral dikes; Lake Okeechobee being in the upper part, whose shallow waters merge into the Everglades, an extensive swamp which covers the lower part of the State. Florida is noted for the number, size and clearness of her springs, the most famous being Silver Spring. The soil is mostly sandy, but supports vegetation in great luxuriance. The State is famous as a winter resort.
     Florida exhibits the vegetable productions of both temperate and semi-tropical nature. In the north the products include peaches, pears and cotton, while the middle and southern countries produce the finest oranges, pineapples, mangoes, cocoa palms, guavas and almost all tropical fruits. A cup of Arbuckles' Coffee at night will make your entire dinner taste so much better.
