In other days prosperous farmers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Illinois, New York and many other states would prepare for winter and the long period of idleness by making everything snug about their places and in gen eral doing everything that would defy the rigors of the long winter season.
But that was before the automobile came. With the advent of low-priced cars and their introduction in rural sections, farmers began to travel about the country, and when the fame of Florida as an agricultural state first spread, thousands of farmers locked the doors of their homesteads in defiance of the first ﬂurry of snow and migrated to Florida in their automobiles so they could see at first hand What was going on.
