The most delightful and salubrious climate in the United States is to be found in the HIGHLANDS OF FLORIDA, called by some the “APOPKA MOUNTAINS,” in the beautiful clear water Lake Region.

CLERMONT is located on gently rolling land, between Lakes Minnehaha and Minneola, in Sumter County, Florida.  Soil highly productive.  Amongst the best in the State for the raising of Oranges, Limes, Lemons, Bananas, Pineapples, STRAWBERRIES, and all kinds of EARLY VEGETABLES.

PRICES OF LAND.—­Farm Land, $20 per acre, and upwards; Lake Fronts, $50 per acre, and upwards; Town Lots, 50 x 150 feet, $100 and upwards, according to location, AND ON EASY TERMS.


Is in great part a rich, sandy loam, and is suitable for raising fruits and vegetables.  These lands are situated south of the so-called FROST LINE, and you can market your fruit and vegetables raised thereon as early as can be done from any other portion of Florida, and earlier than can be done from any other State in the Union.


THE HEALTHIEST location in the State.  Good health is an essential thing in the profitable cultivation of a farm or garden, and the richest soil in the world may yield very poorly if the settler is unable to expend upon it his labor on account of chills and fever or malaria.  NO WINTER to delay your work.

PLANT YOUR VEGETABLES IN OCTOBER and November, and commence to send your produce to market in February.  THREE CROPS CAN BE RAISED IN A YEAR from the same piece of ground.
