About sixteen vears ago a IJahaina
vess l was wrecked off the co:it, near
Jupiter inlet. Soon afU-r the waves la
gan brinin th caryo ashore, anionic
which wero found a lare numlnT of
XM;oanut. Itt'silents were very few in
this section at that time, but they
gathered together and appropriated
whatever canit to them.
These ecH-oanut.s were considered grej t
prizes and were at once planted. Tin
soil was found to be favorable to the
growth and they thrived wonderf idly.
Thus was introduced the culture of th"
nut upon the soil of the North Aiiieriv.:i
continent. In Dade county, one of the
southernmost counties of the st.r..-.
which has a sea front of 1.10 miles, t'ac.v
are now groves of great beauty contain
ing from, 100 to 5,otio trees.
Cocoanut cub m'-o is very simple. The
ripe nut is plucked from the tree and. in
the outer husk that surrounds it, is p;H
under ground, lightly covered with soli.
The first shoot should make its app fi
ance in one mouth after planting, but ii.
is often two before it comes. When it i
about a foot high it is transplanted to it ;
permanent resting place. If the nut i'
planted as a nursery stock the husk i ;
left on, as the young plant is very lei -der.
and it seems that a growth out i:
the husk has a tendency to make strong
the reedlike joints. If it bo first pla:i'.,j i
where it is to remain the busk is usually
For the first year the plant requires
careful protection from the winds, but
it gradually grows hardy, and at the end
of six years begins bearing. The blooms
make their appearance a dozen or imae
fingers, looking like grains of corn strung
on wire about a foot in length. These
grains are young nuts.
They ripen in a year's time, and there
after until its death the tree is never
without fruit in various stages of ripe
ness, from a tiny lobe the size of a pea
to ripe nuts, and there is not a day in
the year when the riie nuts cannot lie
secured. It has been demonstrated in
other countries that the cocoanut tree
will bear fruit for twenty-live years. To
what age they live has not been ascer
tained. The trees make a most beautiful and
imposing grove, being truly tropical in
their appearance. As they are planted
only about twenty feet apart, they cast
a thick, unvarying shade. They iir ever
green, as is most tropical foliage, and
their graceful aess, with the great height
they attain, makes them a desirable ad
dition to a home in the far south. The
diameter of the tree ranges from one
foot to four, and they attain a height of
12.") feet, having as many as 4C0 nuts ou
them at one time.
The old fashioned method of grating
the nut has been superseded by a ma
chine for grinding, and the residents of
the southern country keep on hand for
their use a fresh supply of homemade
desiccated cocoanut, from which various
toothsome dishes are prepared. The
product is becoming more generally
known by reason of its excellent fiber,
and the "cloth," a strong, fibrous bark,
that grows far above the ground and is
utilized in many ways. If the use of
cocoanut butter ever becomes common
the owner of a grove of thpse trees will
see his fortune ahead. The butter is
made from the oil of the nut, expressed
Even the raw grated nut is an excel
lent substitute for shortening" in bread,
the grated nut in the same quantity
being substituted for lard. The cooking
process seems to destroy entirely the
vegetable taste and apiearance, and bis
cuit made with it are pronounced as
good as real cream biscuit.
Shorn of its cocoanut growth, a tropi
cal country would certainly be less at
tractive in appearance. The long,
feathery leaves that undulate so grace
fully in the breeze which sighs among
them, the "everlasting green" of their
coloring, their tall stateliness and their
symmetry beautify the whole country
where they grow especially the south
Florida country, where they grow in
such profusion. St. Louis Republic.
Pari lias Thousands of Trees.
Statistics show that the parks and
gardens in Paris number not less than
21)9,294 shrubs and 22,008 large trees.
The number of trees which line the
streets is considerably over 100,000.
The quarter of Paris which is most
abundant in trees is that of Passy, just
beyond the Trocadero, and just across
the Seine from what was the site of the
great exiwsition of 1889. Xew York
The Objection to Sterilized Milk.
All methods of sterilization that are
in use in this country have the disad
vantage of giving to the milk the taste
which is peculiar to boiled milk, and
also of rendering it less easily absorbed
by the body. In France and Germany
a method, has ljeeu adopted which ac
complishes the purpose without injuring
the. taste of the milk. Professor H. W.

Something quite different, 1 assure you,
from being a ipuhir o.'iUcr in the regu
lar army. Why? For thin reason: lu
the army, if an ollicer taken euro of his
Uicu, sers that they get their clothing
and pay promptly, looks out lor their in
terests in case they ure bo unfortunate
ioj up iu the guardhouse.
nQ nultter how Btrict a disciplinarian he
may l or how he may make tho men
stand around, he will be popular with
them. But here in the guard the rela
tionship between officer and men is en
tirely changed. The rank and file, who
are men that need no supervision of their
personal affairs, exject their officers to
be 'good fellows' socially.
An officer need not be a strict disci
plinarian to be very popular, but it is
only fair to say that the majority of na
tional guard officers, esjiecially iu some
of our crack commands, have jut as
thorough an understanding of military
requirements as regular army officers.
Lverytl.iiig else being equal, therefore,
the popularity of the men may Ik- com
pared as that of a man among employee
or among his club equals. 1 mention
the.M- facts to show how easily a regular
army oincer could f;iil to succeed in the
guard, and. vice versa, how impossible it
would be r a guard officer, whose easy
going society ways are an essential part
of his siiece.-s in his rank, to make a
name for himself in tho army." Brook

fraud Worth .1lor Titan the Origin. il.
The art frauds that have taken shape
and substance, which renmin to incum
ber the world as false coin ever circulat
ing from baud to hand, are of all times
and periods. The archaeology of fraud
even has become a science: some of the
overt and acknowledged frauds them
selves have attained the status of pre
cious and coveted works, more valuable
in the strange gj'rations in the wheel of
time than the originals they simulated.

After 1 had been riding three or four
months, and had lived on beef and water.
I found myself in a condition which I can
only describe by saying that I felt that no
exertion could kill me, although I con
stantly arrived so completely exhausted
that I could not speak; yet a few hours'
sleep upon my saddle on the ground al-waj-s
so completely restored me that for
a week I could daily be upon my horse
before sunrise, could ride till two or
three hours after 6unset, and have really
tired ten or twelve horses a day. This
will explain the immense distances which
people in South America are said to ride,
which I am confident could only le done

To Cut ;Ih with Shears.
A sheet of glass a window pane for
example can be cut as easily as a sheet
of cardboard. The secret consists in
keeping the glass, the shears and the
hands under water during the operation.
The glass can be cut in straight or
curved lines without a break or a crack.
This is because the water deadens the
vibrations of the shears and the glass.
If the least part of the shears comes out
of . the water the vibration will lje
