There are coffee forests, for in
stance. The coffee business is not
cultivated at all, but trees grow
wild in such luxuriance that it is
utterly impossible for a man to
penetrate them. Paths are cut
through them from one village to
another, and that is all. When
coffee harvest comes around the
people gather the berries from the
od ges of the groves, and the rest
goes to waste.
“It is much the same with sugar
cane. The people do not cultivate
sugar cane. It grows wild, you can
tell that by looking at it when it is
brought to town. It is crooked.
You could not for five dollars get a
straight piece two feet long. Ev
erything grows in such profusion
that people live in spite of revo

the drain of such constant warfare
be sustained. Ordinary govern

year when coffee season comes-
around, the government collects
from 84,000,000 to 85,000,000. But
under the system there the officials
in power know that their turn to
go into exile will soon come. I
have been there two years, but a
third set of officials is in power.

would soon end, had t oprepare to

The Thrifty Hen.
The hen of the United States is
a great institution, and no one need
make sport of her. She was worth
to this country last year oh her
own personal accouut $200,000,000
according to the Bureau of Indus
trial Statistics. Besides this, the
foreign hen contributed two mil
lion and a half dollars worth of
eggs to our uses. This would sug
gest that a farther acquaintance
with the hen would be worth culti
vating. There is large room for
ambitious poultry raisers to in
dulge their tastes at profit.
Augusta’s scientific men are puz
zled over the case of Major Perry,
an old darkey with paralysis, who
goes into trances, and delivers fine
sermons from orthordox texts, and
wakes up to complete unconscious
ness of his performances.
A printer’s error has been de
tected in the last issue of the Bible
from the Cambridge press. In
Isaiah xlviii, 13, the word “founda
tion” is begun with an “r” instead
of an “f.” The mistake was dis
covered by a young son of Bev.
Dr. H. Adler, who has received the
standing reward of a guinea offer
ed for the detection of such an er
as -hardy as the "former, and both
are so excellent that they should
receive more consideration. The
Paragon chestnut is a'choice vari
ety, equal to the common chestnut
in quality, and more than doable
in size and very prolific. Whether
an American seeding of the Japan
chestnut, or a hybrid between the
latter and the American species, is
not known certainly, nor rs it im
portant since the tress continues
to do well wherever tried in Penn
sylvania, Ohio, etc. The price at
which young trees can be obtained
is moderate. Another valuable in
troduction is Hale’s Paper-shell
hickory nut, a variety of the shell-
bark hickory found recently in
New Jersey. The shell is remark
ably thin, the surface having gen
tle depressions and undulations in
stead of the corrugations of the
ordinaryjiickory nut. Kernel thick
and of fine flavor. Owing to the
difficulty of propagating the hick
ory, by both budding aud grafting,
this choice variety must continue
to be scarce and high-priced for
some time yet. The hickories and
chestnuts are free from the fault
justly charged against the walnuts
—all of them—of the roots being
injurious to other trees in the
vicinity, aud to the grass even.
The Cost of Fertility in Hand.
It is beyond question that the
essential elements to be supplied
in plant food consists of only three,
viz: nitrogen, potash and phos
phoric acid; all the other elements
seem to be abundant and available
in most soils; but some of these
three are often lacking, or are
locked up in a combination beyond
the reach of most plants, and must
in some way he unlocked or sup
plied artificially, or we can have
no healthy plant growth. These
elements haye an almost fixed value
the world over. Soluble nitrogen
is worth over 16 cents per pound,
potash 5 cents, phosphoric acid
cents. Comparing the various land
products it is demonstrated that
selling $500 worth of hay would
remove fertilizers with a value
$366; $500 worth of corn, $180
same of wheat, $125; of wool, $50
like amount of dairy products,
$500 worth of fruit would cause
loss of much less than either of the
last, .thus in the matter of fruit
growing it is shown to impoverish
land only in a small proprotion
that ordinary farm crops do.—S.

but not too much of that.
"There is too much bad temper.

Too much hard judgment.
