THEY ARE GROWN VERY SUCCESS
FULLY IN SOUTH FLORIDA.
AlthuuKh Introduced Only Slxtren Yriti
Ago, the State Could Not Now 1 Yt r
Well Without Them Some of the ltti -Uses
the Cocoanut Is Put To.
While the cocoanut tree alouiifls i
South Florida it is not a not a native o.
the section nor has the fruit been culti
vated here for any great length of time.
About sixteen years ago a Bahama
vessel was wrecked off the coast, ne;ir J
Jupiter inlet. Soon after tho waves lx--gan
bringing the cargo ashore, among
which were found a large number of
cocoanuts. Residents were very few in
this section at that time, but they
gathered together and appropriated
whatever came to them.
These cocoanuts were considered gre;t
prizes and were at once planted. The
soil was found to be favorable to the
growth and they thrived wonderfully.
Thus was introduced the culture of the
nut upon the soil of the North American
continent. In Dade county, one of the
southernmost counties of the state,
which has a sea front of 150 miles, there
are now groves of great beauty contain
ing from 100 to 6,000 trees.
Cocoanut culture is very simple. The
ripe nut is plucked from the tree and, in
the outer husk that surrounds it, is put
under ground, lightly covered with soil.
The first shoot should make its appear
ance in one month after planting, but it
is often two before it comes. When it is
about a foot high it is transplanted to its
permanent resting place. If the hut is
planted as a nursery stock the. husk in
left on, as the young plant is very ten
der, and it seems that a growth out of
the husk has a tendency to make strong
the reedlike joints. If it be first planted
where it is to remain the husk 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 more
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 6tages of riie
ness, from a tiny lobe the size of a pea
to ripe nuts, and there is not a day in
the year when the ripe nuts cannot be
secured. It has been demonstrated in
other countries that the cocoanut tree
will bear fruit for twenty-five 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 ar ever
green, as is most tropical foliage, and
their gracefulness, 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
125 feet, having as many as 400 nuts on
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 oh 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 iu many ways. If the use of
cocoanut butter ever becomes common
the owner of a srrove of these trees will
J 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 appearance, 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
J symmetry beautify the whole country

Paris Has Thousands of Trees.
Statistics show that the parks and
gardens in Paris number not less than
299,294 shrubs and 22,038 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

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 been adopted which ac
complishes the purpose without injuring
the taste of the milk. Professor H. W.
Conn in Popular Science Monthly.
Cause ot AVJnter's Coldness.
The earth is nearer to the sun in win
ter than in summer, but the cause of
the cold weather of the former season is
the oblique inclination f the sitn's rays.
Did the sun shine as directly on the
earth's surface in January as in June
the winter would be the hotter season.

The problem of "telegraph without
wires' luus often Iwen broached, but, ko
far a9 I know, even the theoretical reali
sation of this project has never Ix-en
fceriotudy attempted until recently, when
Mr. Edison guve forth Ids views regard
ing the matter. It would seem that Mr.
Edison has actually patented "mean
for transmitting signals electrically
without the interiosition of connecting
wires." What he has to say regarding
this subject is well worth our attention,
lie begins with the announcement of
his discovery that, if a sufficient eleva
tion le obtained to overcome the curva
ture of the earth, and to reduce as far
as may be the earth's absorption, elec
tric signaling may be carried on by in
duction without the use of wires con
necting the distant points of signaling
For signaling across oceans, says Mr.
Edison, this method will be very service
able, inasmuch as it does away with
the use of submarine cables; while for
communication between vessels at sea,
or between vessels at sea and points on
land, the invention would be equally
important. There is also no obstacle to
its employment between distant points
on land, but in the latter case it is nec
essary to increase the degree of eleva
tion or height from which the signaling
operations are conducted, because of the
induction absorbing effect of houses,
trees and hills.
Mr. Edison states that at sea he can
communicate electrically to a great dis
tance from a height of 100 feet. Thia
height could be secured from the mast
of a ship, so that signals could be sent
from ship to ship, and communication
be established, in this way, even over
oceans themselves. Dr. Andrew Wil
son in Illustrated London News.
Visitors to Portland pier who hap
pened to drop into the lobster house of
Mr. Lewis McDonald were favored with
a view of a bright .blue lobster. Thia
lobster was caught off Cape Elizabeth
by a Peak's island fisherman, and yes
terday was still alive. The color was
decidedly different from the green of
the ordinary lobster. On the back the
blue was of that deep variety that be
longs to indigo, and toward the extremi
ties and under parts shaded off to a
faint, but still unmistakable tint, and
thence into a pure white. The under
part of one of the claws is almost a pure
white. The lobster is about eleven
inches long. One claw is full size,
while the other is very small. It is said
that one other blue lobster has been
caught off the cape this season. Mr.
McDonald thinks of preserving the spe
cimen. He has also a pure white lobster,
caught about five years ago and pre
served in alcohol. Mr. McDonald thinks
it is the only pure white lobster ever
caught. Portland (Me.) Press.
A Rig Peach Crop Predicted.
If the experts who have recently been
examining the orchards in the fruit sec
tions of New Jersey have read the in
dications correctly, the peach harvest
of the coming season will be of a phe
nomenal nature. They say the glut of
1891 will seem insignificant compared
with the colossal crop impending.
The fanners for tho most part are a
little skeptical about this prediction.
They say a good fruit year is almost in
variably followed by a bad one; but
prudent housewives, remembering that
last season the hogs were fed upfn
peaches and vast quantities of the lus
cious fruit were allow to rot, because
there were not sufficient cans to hold it,
are taking time by the forelock and
providing themselves with preserving
vessels far in advance of the promised
harvest. The canning establishments,
too, will be prepared to do an enormous
business. New York Times.
The Snake AVas Too Slow.
With the approach of spring flowers
and mild weather the crop of Georgia
snake stories begins to increase. The
latest comes from Albany, in that state,
and is to the effect that two or three
days ago a Mr. Watson, a reputable citi
zen, stepped on a big rattler. All that
saved the man from being bitten was
that the snake had just begun to swal
low a rabbit and hadn't had time to get
the morsel down. The snake struggled
first to complete its meal, in order to
get in its fine work on Mr. Watson, and
then, failing in that, tried to disgorge
the rabbit, but before it could accom
plish its purpose was killed. Exchange.
Argentine a Good Market.
A settler in Diamante, Entre Rios, Ar
gentine Republic, writes that over eighty
reaping machines and forty-five thrash
ing machines were received in that lo
cality last year, while the cost of the
twine used for binding wheat amounted
to f60,000, and estimates that this year
$150,000 worth of twine will be used.
He says that the settlers this year will
need 600,000 bags. Within the last two
months Diamante has purchased $582,
000 worth of agricultural machinery.
The yield of wheat during the past sea
son has averaged almost a ton an acre,
and is of a superior quality. Philadel
