Orlando. Fla. Dec. 28. Fires are

save the groves. " The weather
Bureau gave warnine of frost on
Friday, and th9 fires were kindled
at once. In the night the temnar-
ature fell to 24 and la9t night it
was 22. - A temDerature of 24 -5a
fatal to young trees, and 18 will kill
those well matured. '
The fires have Drevented losses
that would have amounted to mil
lions of dollars. So far it is thought
that little damage has been done
to the jouog trees. As fully 8o per
cent of the fruit has been shipped
the remainder will be safe, and as
good judges say, juicier for a s little
cold . , ; ... v : r

had been scattered throughout the

Soon the bright gleam was seen fojr

The aim is to secure n. r!no
smoke that will hover over the trees
making a canopy that the frost can
not penetrate. .- in nearlv evnrv
case this will protect trees from-the
most severe cold. In hundreds of
-gufv--i&all tbeel iron stoves are
provided. These are kept going all
night. If the cold continues for
days the cost to the grower- ia con
6iderable. But generally two nights
at a time is as long a3 a "freeze"
Mr Stetson, a Philadelphia mil
lionaire, has large groves at Daland
in which each tree is protected by a
nouse bout around it,, wit b a small
stove inside. Only rniUionaires
can afford this, but Mr Stetson says
nis increase crop pays the expense.
Mauy weaitny growers have fen
