Yield Varies Greatly, but Another and
Steady Product of the Sultanate
Is Corpra, Finding Ready

The Sultanate of Zanzibar, Just off
the coast of central Africa, comprises
four islands Zanzibar, Pemba, Mafia
and Lamu. This sultanate produces
perhaps nine-tenths of the cloves of
the world. The climate and soil of
the two islands of Zanzibar and Pem Pemba

growing of this important article.
Many of the trees are 90 years old, al although

on Zanzibar island date from 1872,
when a terrific cyclone swept over it,
doing fearful damage to the trees.
' Clove trees begin to bud about Jan January
uary January or February, and the picking is
done any time after July, continuing
for about four months, as the trees
ripen irregularly. When the cloves
have been picked they are exposed on
mats to the sun for six or seven days,
and are then sent to the custom bouse
where the government extracts an ex export
port export duty of 25 per cent.
The crop is a very uncertain one, a
heavy yield one year, and compara comparatively
tively comparatively nothing the next. The bulk of
the cloves are bought by American,
German and Indian firms, and are sent
to Bombay, Hamburg, London and
New York. Most of the cloves are
used in distilling oil of cloves, which
in turn is employed in the manufac manufacture
ture manufacture of drugs, perfumes, confectioner confectioneries,

Another great product of Zanzibar
is copra, which is the dried interior of
the cocoanut. The cocoanut tres grow

of cocoanut trees on it. A tree will

been conducting a mission at Hunan,
in the vice-royalty of Wu Chang,
where the Chinese rebellion had its

inception, and Rev. A. W. Martin,
who for three years has had a mis

Mr. Webster, who went to Hankow

immediately following news of the

uprising, with all other foreigners,

captured, burned and sacked by the

imperial forces. During his stay there

Then the Material Interest found
his tongue. "I don't think you are

Here is a dime. Save it. Not a large amount, you say? No, you're
right, yet it represents ten per cent Interest on one dollar for a year. It's
the little things that count in this life. History tells us that the Duke of
Wellington attributes the "victory of the Allies at Waterloo to the closing of
the Hugomont Castle gates by James McDowell and John Graham. It was a
small thing. But the results hare been marvelous as we look back over the
intervening years. Philip D. Armour knew the value of little things. They
say he packed everything but the last breath of a hogutilizing the waste in
the manufacture of by-products made him wealthy. The small boy by stick sticking
ing sticking his finger in the leak in the dam saved Holland from destruction. A
few drops of water on a stone makes no impression the constant drip
wears away the stone. The little point on the auger prepares the way for
- the large bored hole. A single grain of corn produces from one to two per perfect
fect perfect ears. And so the little dime Is a part of a dollar. Dollars at interest
produce dollars Just as surely as the seed sown on rich ground brings forth
an abundant harvest. Then save the DIME! Watch it grow.
