NEW YORK LUMBER MARKET.
NEW YORK, May 18.-A decidedly
quieter market prevailed in general during
the last week or ten days than during
the ten days preceding. Small arrivals
are noted at the yards, as dealers do not
want to be loaded up unless there is a pos-
itive outlet for the stock. Prices remain
practically at the same levels as last week,
although noticeably weak, and in general
cheaper lumber is expected. The question
of the new inspection rules was not dis-
cussed at yesterday's meeting of the lum
ber association, but it is expected to oper-
ate for lower prices on yellow pine and
miscellaneous hard woods.
Eastern spruce is just beginning to
come in, but the mills are starting up now
and better trade is expected. One mill at
St. Johns opened up yesterday. West
Virginia spruce is dull, price weak. White
pine is in steady demand; barn boards and
box woods are scarce in stock and price
firm. The large demand for window strips
indicates good building prospects for the
summer. Lath is down 15c from last week
on further arrivals. The stock on hand is
now plentiful. Yellow pine has been ex-
ceptionally quiet and yard supplies light,
prices are easy. The practical agreement
of the principal manufacturers throughout
the West to curtail the production is hold-
ing prices firm here.
Advices from the West indicate a fairly
prosperous condition. Minneapolis report
an exceedingly satisfactory business on
white pine. At Duluth mills are now
starting up. In the South business is
quieter. At Mobile a number of mills
have shut down and suspended logging.
Trade in Jacksonville is at a standstill.
Mills are running light and there is but
little new business. Only low offers are
made for stock lumber.

stocks, however, has not set in as expect-
Reports from the middle North and
Northwest indicate a sluggish market con-
-equent upon the continued cold weather.
Reports received from the principal
\. white pine centers of the country, indicate
that stocks on hand are generally smaller
than at the same time last year, and that
prices, while holding firm, have not ad-
vanced, except the lower grades. At Al-
inny new shipments have been delayed
by ice, and at Buffalo there is quite a
large stock of high grade white pine. Al-
though an extreme scarcity is reported at
Milwaukee, prices have not responded, ozn
account of the unfavorable business condi-
tions. An increase is reported in No. 4
and No. 5 boards. Shipments from tht
Mississippi Valley for the first three
months this year were over 17,500,000 feet
les than for the same time last year. The
saw mills of Duluth and Superior will not
cut as much lumber by 30 per cent. as
was cut last year. There is little dry
stock on hand, but the demand is only

TAPPED YELLOW PINE.
Is It As Strong As Pine That Has Not
In the development of the use of yellow
pine for construction purposes there has,
perhaps, been more of a diversity of opin-
ion upon the relative strength of tapped
ailnd untapped timber than upon any oth-
r r comparisons of that lumber with other
varieties as to strength, durability, etc.
Indeed, there are today many users of
heavy yellow pine who still cling unalter-
ably to the belief that the acme of
strength is comprised in untapped timber.
\e know, however, that a vast majority
Sf users have gone over to the opposite
belief, and while numerous tests have been
made in recent years on this point, there
has been perhaps, no test which has been
ais exhaustive and final in its conclusions
:is that recently made by the Forestry
,rnimission at Washington on this point.
'I he conclusion reached has just been pub-
lished, and we quote as follows from the
"Tlhe yellow pine is superior wherever
-trength and durability are required. In
ensile strength it approaches, and may
-urpass, cast iron. In cross-breaking
strength it rivals the oak, requiring 10,000
Sounds per square inch on the average to
break it, while in stiffness it is superior
to the oak by from 50 to 100 per cent. It
is best adapted for principal members of
heavy constructions, for naval architect-
tre, for bridges, trestles, viaducts, and
house-building. Contrary to common be-
lief, the tapping for turpentine was found
iby a large number of tests, lately made
inder direction of this division, not to
weaken, but to strengthen the timber in
,ross-hlriaking and compression and to in-
c iease its stiffness."

Problems in Lumber Transportations
Existing Evils Must Be Remedied,
The National Lumber Manufacturers'
Association holds its annual meeting at
St. Louis next week. At that time the
transportation questions will ie among
the most important matters discussed andl
acted uilpon. Mr. W. B. Stillwell. of Sa
vannah, who is chairman of that commit-
tee, has addressed a letter to the Presi-
dents and generall Managers of the vari-
ous railroads of the United States. Mr.
Stillwell has sent a copy of this letter to
the Industrial Record. It follows:
Savannah, (;a., April 19)th, 1904.
To the Presidents and generall Managers
of the Railroads of the United States:
Gentlemen:-Not second to. but corre-
lative with, the internal problems of the
lumber manufacturing business, are those
problems of transportation which, through
years. have defied local treatment and call
for remedies National in scope. Impelled
byv the first law of nature., self-pre'serva

turers were held in Charleston, S. C., April
18th. 19'0-2, in Atlanta. 6(a., October 7th and
8th. 1902. and in St. Louis, December 9th
and 10th, 1902. culminating in the tem-
porary organization of the National Lum-
her Manufacturers' Asociation at St.
Louis on last mentioned date, and its full
and successful organization in Washing
ton, D. C., April 20th and 21st, 1903.
The purpose of the National Lumber
Manufacturers' Association is to remedy
existing evils and promote the welfare ot
of the great lunmhr industry by intellh-
gent and conservative methods. The first
step in this direction brings it face to
face with car e.luipment, car shortage, re-
ciprocal d&murrage, prompt transporta-
tion, claims and other problems, all ot
which we believe can, by mutual and de
termined effort, be greatly ameliorated, ii
not quite removed.
The National Lumber Manufacturers
Association will hold its annual meeting
at St. Louis, Missouri, on the 24th. 25th
and 26th days of May. At this meeting.
these problems wil come up for discussion
and 'some action is sure to be taken. It
is the desire and purpose of the officers ol
the Association that such action shall be
on lines which will afford the greatest re
lief with the least friction and inconven
ience to those concerned. To this end.

will consider our presentation of the mat-

When the first flat cars were placed for
oadiing, the manufacturer, after putting
his lumber thereon, out of mere comrade-
ship and in protection of life, at r--"" -
of engineer or conductor, cut down sap-
ling, and. hewing the ends, placed them
in sides of the car to prevent accident by
lumber falling off. Thus was the practice
if the manufacturers equipping flat cars
begun, so it has continued through all
gradations for a time so gradual as not
to emplhasize this unjust burden, for in
ile 70'- the flat cars had not gone beyond
a capacity of 15,000 to 20,000 lbs., 4,000
to 5,I000 feet of lumber, and still the sap-
lings were doing duty in a large measure.
Large capacity cars gradually evolved and
.notre si cure equipment became necessary,
;ind protection uwas given from the abun-
.lance of low grade material, then accept-
able to the railroads and not so ready of
-ale as now. The manufacturer was still
apparently oblivious to the injustice, but
progress became rife and passed all

ARK YOU A SUBSCRIBKK TO THE RECORD?
THE WEEKLY INDUSTRIAL RECORD. 7
the records of a larger lumber-carrying
railroad showing that in the past ten
years only they had increased the capacity
of their cars, vis: flats, 123 per cent; box,
47 per cent.; coal, 33 per cent., and by
rigid rules as to equipment promulgated
by the railroads, taking only the best
quality of lumber, and subject to most
technical inspection by the railroads. And
who furnishes this equipment; does cabi-
net work to fit to the cars, subject to these
railroad rules and technical inspection?
The manufacturer? Yes, and then pays
freight on it besides!
Marvelous that this industry, second in
all the land, should have so long submitted
to such discrimination. Marvelous indeed
that the railroads, every ready, and 1
may add, with commendable promptness,
to meet the requirements of progress in
al other directions, on all other commodi-
ties, should have continued to impose this
unjust burden on the lumber manufactur-
ers. and particularly when in a State leg-
islative hearing a Master Mechanic of
forty years experience admitted that prop
er equipment could be provided by the
railroads for a cost of $25 per car-a mert
bagatelle, when compared to the showing
at the same hearing that this equipment
was costing the lumber manufacturers
from $100 to $150 per car per year, or
several timts the value of the whole car
during its average life. Marvelous that
as an element of safety the railroads have
not long ere this devised and applied per-
manent adjustable equipment to flat cars
just as they did in the matter of air-
brakes and automatic couplers. Look at
the risk of having 30,000 or more mills,
great and small, furnishing and fitting
equipment of all kinds of material, with
all kinds of workmanship, the same to be
inspected by tens of thousands of inex-
perienced and often irresponsible agents
and inspectors, resulting in accidents un
recorded, and culminating in the Connells
ville accident, in which sixty-five lives
were sacrificed. The inducement to all par-
ties to solve this problem is too apparrent
for comment or argument. That the solu-
tion and adjustment of the other mention
ed problems are necessary for the mutual
good and prosperity of the railroads ano
the lumber manufacturers is also appar-
Now, as to the manner of procedure.
The manufacturers urge comprehensive,
prompt action; the railroads are disposed
to delay action or temporize. Great rail
road men and high officials have made
serious mistakes in their day. One, in.
speaking of the movement of lumber fron.
a certain territory, remarked that if the)
did not transport it today, they could to-
morrow, next year or some time. Wheh
a branch was extended from another sys-
tem and tne traffic slipped entirely away
from his lines, he realized his mistake.
Later, equally high officials likened tht
individual "kicker" to weaklings shooting
spit-balls at the Leviathan, and remarked
that as a rule they could not make a pay-
ing tariff for a ten-mile railroad to save
their souls, nor were they big enough to
run a hand-car, and proceeded to expati-
ate on the beneficent influence of railroad
managers as follows:
"Put th'.se men down in any old sleep)
hollow with their seething brains, heads full
of steam hammer, pulley, crank and get
there, and right away everything begins
to shine with new values." But the weak-
ling can "evolute" as well as anybody
Find a lumber manufacturer of any im.
portance today, and you find a railroad
man. who, in this great country of ours
has built more branch railroads and laid
the foundations for more trunk lines than
the lumber manufacturers. They have
pushed their way hundreds of miles into
hle wilderness, built up cities, and made
:he surrounding country alive with activ-
ity and development.
We know not how the Leviathan is cre-
ited. grows or is built, but we know the
evolution of the lumber manufacturers,
and believe that in the National Lumber
manufacturerss' Association you will find
intellect to cope with intellect, and should
t come to war, foemen worthy of your
-teel. But it is not war we wish. By con-
prence, study and intelligent action busi-
n ss problems should be adjusted, ant we
now ask your suggestions looking to the
promptt eradication of existing evils. We
wish these to come from equals, your
practical men in authority, and not sub-
tdinate officials who, after writing to
and hearing from us can do nothing final
Ibut will have to refer everything to some
ne higher in authority, as happened in a
e-cent notable case. This ended in the
railroad making a mistake which amount-
e I to a crime, for in that instance they de-
moralized and irreparably injured the lum-
-er manufacturing business over an area
wherein originates one-fifth of the enor-
!ious traffic represented by this industry,
vith no corresponding benefits. We ask
ioun to avoid a similar mistake in this in-
stance and let your reply come promptly
and through the right channel, addressed
is above suggested, in order that the an-
nual meeting may view the matter front
all standpoints and take action according-
!y. Yours respectfully,

Turpentine Still Burned.
On the 9th inst. the still, cooper shopl-
and some other property of the Clark
Ray-Johnson Co., naval stores operators,
at Martel, Fla., were burned to the ground.
Loss $2,000, with no insurance. The lire

built at once.
It is Delegate Hillman.

NAVAL STORES NOTES.
The steamship Celba cleared from Fer-
nandina on the 7th inst. for Hamburg
with 3,000 casks spjirits of turpentine and
12,200 barrels of rosin.
The British bark Golden Gate from Sa-
vannah, arrived at Hull May 4th with
5,400 barrels rosin.
The steamship Costa Rica, from Nes
Orleans, arrived at Liverpool May 6th with
220 casks spirits turpentine.
The increased demand for naval stores
is more than keeping pace with the con
editions. The prices prove this. The av
erage price for turpentine this year is
ten cents a gallon higher than it was at
its lowest point last year. This standard
has been maintained by the operators.
who set a limit below which the minimum
could not go, and one way to keep the
price up was by sustaining the market.
This has been done all along the line, and
the result is highly satisfactory.
The American Turpentine Company, ol
Washington, D.C., will install a plant fox
the manufacture of wood turpentine at
Valdosta, Ga., to cost $40,000.
The Lewis Naval Stores Company, ol
No: th Carolina, has purchased 19,000 acre-
of land in Washington County, Ala., 43
miles north of Mobile. It is said the com
pany will erect a large turpentine plant
in the near future.
This is one result of Mayor Timmon'-

Warning, Advice and Law.
Under recent date the Great Northern
railroad has given a wide circulation to
the following advice and suggestions which
should be carefully read by every one:
"Every summer and autumn large areas
of public and private forests are devastat-
ed by fire. This destruction is a univer-
sal injury. It not only destroys a valua
ble asset in the list of the country's re
sources, but is productive of floods. Tihe
forest is the most effective means of pre-
venting floods and producing a more reg
ular flow of water for irrigation and other
"To prevent the mischievous forest fires
Congress has enacted a law, which forbids
setting fire to the woods, and forbids leave.
ing fires (camp fires and others), without
first extinguishing the same.
"The law provides a maximum fine ot
$5,000, or imprisonment for two years, oi
both, if the fire is set maliciously, and
a fine of $1,000, or imprisonment for one
year, if the fire is due to carelessness.
It also provides that the money from these
fines goes to the school funds of th,
county in which the offense is conumittea.
"Commissioner W. A. Richards. of tht
general land office has issued circulars,
warning the public against carelessness.
inasmuch as many fires stai t from neglect
ed campfires, and makes the following re-
"Do not build a larger fire than you
"Do not build your fires in dense
masses of pine leaves, duff and other corn
bustible material, where tile fire is sun
"Do not build your fire against large
logs, especially rotten logs, where it re
quires much more work and time to put
the fire out than you are willing to ex
pend, and where you are rarely quite eel
tain that the fire is really and complletel.
"In windy weather and in dangerous
places dig a hole and clear off a place to
secure your fire. You will save wood ant
"Every camp fire should be completely
put out before leaving thle camp.
"Do not build fires to clear off lana
and for other similar purposes, without
informing the nearest ranger or super
visor so that he may assist you.
"As hunters, fishers and campers will
soon haunt the iwoodsl and streams, ii
is hoped that newspapers everywhere will
circulate this warning and information.'
The above is take from the Puget Sound
Lumberman. It seems that in tile Far
West they are taking steps to strlo tlt
wholesale and needless destruction of their
forests by fires. The Great Northern and
other commercial arteries of the North
west are taking a hand to supplement til
laws of Congress. Tlhe railroads of the
Southeast could do much also by co-ope-
rating with the State and County author-
ities to circumvent as far as possible this
Wilson's Cypress Camp.
The lumber has been hauled and the
work of building a camp has begun foi
the men employed in taking out cypress
for the Wilson Cypress Company on DeelI
Creek. The camp will have steady work
all summer as the cypress is abundant
To Be a Fine Plant.
The Jetton-Dekyl sawmill wi'l soofi be
in operation on Lake Newnan.
The immense sawmill which has been
in course of construction on Newnan's
Lake, by the Jetton-Dekyl Lumber Com-
painy of Tampa. is about completed. The
machinery is being installed, and if re-
ports are true. the steam will be turned on
to another important Alachua industry
within the next three weeks.
The Industrial Record has already had
something to say about this mill.
The Jetton-Dekyl Company, whicl is
one of the largest lumber concerns in tilt-
State, a few months ago secured several
thousand at.res of tine cypress timber bor-
dering on Newnan's lake. and immediately
proceeded to erect an immense mill, which
will have a cutting capacity of about 60,-
000 feet per day. The machinery ordered
was all modern and of the latest and most
improved pattern, with the result that the
plant will be labor-saving and up-to-date
from every standpoint.
This mill i- located on the shores ot
Newnan's lake, a distance of nearly two
miles from Fairbanks. The mill will be
connected by a tramway to Fairbanks,
where an outlet for its products via the
Sealoard Aair Line Railroad will be at-
forded. The tram i ill also be used to
convey timber to the mill. A tow-boat.
will also be placed in commission on the
lake to transport the timber in rafts to
A large number of hands will be em
played at this mill, and altogether tht
indu-try will prove of great commercial
interest to that section.

FROM THE WOODS TO THE STILL.
Pure spirits of turpentine and water-
white rosin are the products of virgin gum,
freshly dipped from a pine tree box or cup.
The trees are boxed in the fall and win-
ter, and when the warm weather of spring
comes and the sap begins to flow, the
gum drops into the boxes. If the weath-
er be warm, the flow of gum will be free,
checked only by hardening of the gum in
the pores. In cool weather but little gum
will drop. With a good flow the boxes
will fill in about a month. Once a week,
after the flow begins the cutters go over
the crop and hack the tree just above
the box. This is to open the flow that
has been stopped by the hardening of the
gum at the point of exudation. This hack-
ing is done by a peculiarly shaped blade,
cutting what is called a 'streak." The
flow continues for several months, and the
boxes are dipped once a month.
The dipping is done with a sheet iron
scoop, that fits into thle box, and as the
contents are dipped they are emptied into
a two-gallon bucket. This. when full. is
emptied into a nearby barrel, and when
that is filled it is cove red with a hermetic
top and hauled to the still. Here it is
r.lle.l up to the platform, and its con-
tents emptied into the still. In two or
three hours we have turpentine as the dis-
tillation and rosin as the residuum. After
the turpentine has bien taken off, a floodl-
gate in tile still is lifted and the rosin
flows through a strainer into a vat. That
wlich comes out first is not as good as
that which comes later. The vats are then
dipped into barrels and the first dipping is
usually the best WW rosin. After the
turpentine has been purified it its barreled.
And this is how pure spirits of turpen-
tine and water-white rosin are made from
OUR LABOR PROBLEM.
We are proud of the position attained
by the South in the development of its
varied resources, and realize that the la-
horer who toils in the forest, at the forge,
in the factory and in the field has done
much, and full credit should be accorded
But there are laborers and laborers.
Like men in other walks of life, the la-
boring men are not all trusty. There are
some who can be relied upon that when
a contract is made with them and money
is advanced to them on it, relying upon
their fidelity to carry it out, to live up
to their contract.
And then there are others who regard
a contract as a chance to rob their em-
ployers, and they do not hesitate to make
contracts to engage in work for a season
or for a year and as soon as they can get
an advance upon it, skip the neighborhood,
leaving employers in the lurch. It is for
just such laborers as these that stringent
laws should be provided. It is time that
the turpentine men and the lumbermen
get together and sketch out the draft of
a bill that, while constitutional and en-
forcible, will afford employers full protec-
tion. Now is the time to discuss such a
T. 0. A. SUBS.
Time and again the Record has advocat-
ed the importance of sub-associations of
the T. O. A. More of them should be or-
ganized in the Southeast and more mem-
Ihers should enjoy their advantages. The
Record will gladly aid the craft in any
locality to effect the organization of a
sub. and publish its proceedings or any
other thing it may wish that would be of
general interest to the turpentine men.
[here are eight States represented in the
Turpentine Operators' Association. There
should be at least an average of six sub-
associations in each State. Correspondence
is solicited by the Record on this line.
There is a strong sub. at Ocala, Fla.,
which has accomplished wonders for the
good of the association. At its meeting
held on the 12th instant the question ot
continuing it was discussed among its
members, and it was decided that it was
too useful as an adjunct to the turpentine
isiness to let it go down, and a conm-
mittee was appointed to send a circular
letter to its members, making an appeal
for renewed interest. A copy was receih-
Sd by tie lRecord and we cheerfully give it
publication. It is as follows:
"Oeala, Fla., May 12, 1904.
"'Dear Sir: Tie Turpentine Operators'

-ided tlo write each and every operator in

tion was discussed among its members, and
It wa's decided to continue it, as it has
proved such a wonderful success to all
the turpentine operators throughout the

call your attention specially along these
lines, as the prices of naval stores are
high. naturally the operators will make
mnoncy and feel independent, and will neg
Ihct their duty to the Association.
It is our intention to beg you and be-
-sechl you to stick to the Association, as
it is one of the best and strongest bod-

TWENTY YEARS FROM NOW FOR THE MEN OF THE SOUTH.
From time to time editorials in the Rec-

Southeast has been during the past twenty
years. It may not be out of place to at-

hazards one, believing that in each case, it
has under rather than over estimated the

so ioor that they require fertilizers to
raise a crop, will be the recognized vege-
table gardens of the United States foi

to truck farming is this section that even,
now the large produce dealers of the
Northern cities are acquiring thousands
of acres here with a view to meet their
Twenty years from now Jacksonville, it
sihe keeps up her present pace, will have
over a half million population.
Twenty years from now a majority
of the planters and farmers of the South-
cast will be graduates of some of our agri-
cultural colleges and will employ only
the newest and hast methods of farming.
Twenty years front now there will be
a marked change in the methods of em-
ploying farm labor. The young man on,
the farm, be lie white or black, who begins
his work at sunrise, works continually
until noon, and from 1 o'clock until the
going down of the sun, will command $30
or more per month, instead of $12 to $15
ais now; while lie who strains his ears
to catch the first rumblings of the ap
proaching train, stops his work and sor

GOLD COINAGE IN 9go4.
Statistics of the coinage operations o0
thei- United States mints in the months of
.-bruary and Marcl rendered it certain
that the coinage of gold for the current
year would be exceedingly large, and the
pildlication n f the figures for April not
,,nly Isl- rs out the earlier anticipations,
iut indicates that the figures reached this
year will be the largest in the history of
tie government. Thi coinage for Jan-
aary was not large-only $2,765,000-but
that for February amounted to $35.(60,500.
that for March to $63.605,790 and that for
April to $26,177,0()0. The total for the
four months amounted to $128,151,890,.
which represents an increase of over $84,-
4(00.0W as compared with the gold coinage
for the whole of last year and of over
$169.00,000 as compared with the previous
record year 1899.
These figures are phenomenal. Moreover
they are gratifying and teach a wholesome
lesson. The drains upon financial centers
has been very great this year for the de-
velopiment of numerous industries and en-
terprises. However great the demand lhas
been the supply has proved adequate.
Now that we have a gold standard the yel-
low metal comes forth for coinage uoon
demand so easily and so abundantly that
it dispels the dread of free coinage of sil-
ver so blatantly demanded eight years ago.

The tenant who cannot work 80 acres then
instead of 10 acres now, will have to emi-

of those who are now advocating asso-
ciation methods and co-operative ideas

for them by the progressive, far-sighted
men of the present time.
Twenty years from now the country
homes of the Southeast will resemble the
old-time comfortable and luxurious planta-
tion houses so prominent before the War,
while the barns, sheds and fences will
,'onlpare favorably with those of the finest
farms of the great Northwest.
Twenty years from now the Southeast
will breed and fatten the finest live stock
to ie found anywhere in the world.
Twenty years from now, the half mil-
lion people of Jacksonville, instead of
using milk produced in pent-up, unsightly
uand uncleanly quarters, within a few
miles of the courthouse, will get their
upplly of pure milk and pure cream
from tidy farms located along the lines
of the railroads running into this South-
en metropolis, where the conditions of
natural grass, pure water and cleanly
environments are favorable to milk pro-
duction, and brought to this city in spec-
ial milk trains equipped with storage cars.

gia Interstate Sawmill Association, at the
annual meeting this week, by the presenta-
tion to him of a silver service by the en-

When The Day's Work Is Over
TAKE YOUR MEDICINE.
Now and then you hear a fellow
Make a kick about his luck,
But you very seldom hear him
Talk about his lack of pluck.
Now and then a failure tells us
That the world is down on him,
But he never tells us how he
Milk-and-mushed his grit and vim.
Every day you hear some loser
Say that he was frozen out,
But that he was never in it
He expresses not a doubt.
When the world stamps on the kicker,
You can hear him yell a mile;
But who always scowled at others
Now is begging for a smile.
1When a man is down and out, lie
Always has some tale to tell.
He was always pushed or shoved, but
Ni ver tells you that he fell.
And, in sort, it seems the rule to-
When a chap is on the shelf-
Tell a tale that sounds so good he
Nearly thinks it's true himself.
Never squeal if you've been bunkoed,
For nobody's in the dark,
Either you passed by the shuffle
Or you were an easy mark.
If they caught you in the pantry
With your fingers in the jam,
And you got a proper licking,
Emulate the wise old clam.

ST. I,(LUIS, May 18.-Quaint and curi-
ous are the, many objects on exhibition at
the World's Fair. Several of the States
vie witl each other in presenting the odd-
< t freaks of human conception to exploit
their respective products. Some of these
creations provoke broad smiles, not to sa3
hearty laughter, but all are useful in
showing forth some leading product ol
tlie State to which they belong.
California sends several such exhibits.

riety so popular with boarding house land-

are made of prunes of the lighter shades.
In t'tah's exhibit there is a statue of a

Banana Crop Every Fifteen Days.
"*There is evidently an erroneous idea
abroad concerning the harvesting of the
l,anana crop," said a man who has been
for seven years on a plantation in Hon-
"The statement that four or five crops
of bananas are harvested a year is en
tin ly incorrect. A crop is harvested an
an average of every fifteen days through-
out the year. Each thrifty banana plant
has many suckers or stalks growing from
a single root at the same time. One om
more bunches of the ripening fruit are
cut front a single stalk, while the other
stalks growing from the same root are
left untouched, and in fifteen days anoth-
er of the stalks is shorn of its fruit. This
process continues incessantly during the
year. In July and August it is necessary
to cut off the ripening bunches every teln
days. while in December and January
alout once a month is sufficient, the aver-
age throughout the year being practically
fifteen days."--lexican Herald.
