My attention hjis been called to an
article on rubborjiii tho D.iily Tclo
graph of a recent, date, and I have
thought that what I might say upon
the same subject would be of interest
to your readers, as coming from a
rubber planter in Jamaica.
Hitherto plan'ers hero havo been
putting most of their eggs into one
basket, and thinking very little of
any other cultivation than that of
bananas. Bananas begins to give a
return after eighteen month'; rubber
after sevon or eight years. There is
no banana planting in Ceylon. Hence
the enterprising planters there, not
having had the possibility of a quick
return for capital invested, had to
look ahead (or what they considered
the best tiling to put their money in
to. They did so years ago, and found
it in rubber.
During the last six yenrs tho pub
lic carden hero have distributed
about 13,000 to 14,000 rubber plants
to planters. For next year 8 plant
ing tho director has orders for a
million seeds and plants. This scorns
to be a lare number, although it is
only sufficient for 2500 acros, it plant'
ed through cocoa, and one-half of this
acreage if sot out as a plantation of
rubber onlv. and thero aro thousands
of acres of land suitable for tho culti.
vatlon of rubber to be had at a fair
Drieo. This boom in rubber is to be
attributed mainly, I think, to a live
ly, interesting correspondonoo which
appeared in the Jamaica Dally Tele
irratih last December and January.
It is ako partly duo to tho fact, that
banana planters beleive that they
are receiving too low a, price for
their fruit, Resides this, a good

to relieve themselves of tho woi ry

ony ones wl:o havt, tl.eos old
and big enough to tap. The growth
where soil and slmdu conditions are
favorablo is marvellous. A large
number of my trees aro well above
thirty feet high and aro a yard in
girth t;vo foot from the ground. This
girth-measurement is increasing at
,the rate of at least three inches an
nually. What the yield Jn latex will
be I can not tell, nor oven guess. I,
know that a slight cut with a pen
knife causos latex to flow as if there
were pressure behind, and am there1'
fore not in the least solicitous as to
quantity. Tho proper time for tapp
ing my trees will not bo before the
next or the following year. Castil
loas, It is said, younger than eight
years have a larger ratio of resin in
in their latex, than when over this
age, and this ratio lessens year by
year as the tr cs grow older, so that
it seems expedient to defer tapping.
As tho cultivation of rubber is still
in its infancy, little can with certain
ty be said as to profits. A friend of
m'.ue who has property in Costa Rica
assures me that ho receives tho sum
of 9 annually from only five trees.
He has never seen theso trees, nor
does he know their age. . Probablv
they were forest trees when tho land
was some years ago cleared for bana
na planting. But it is a well-cstab-liscd
fact that the yield of latex from
a trco increases year by year at a
rate beyond arithmetical progres
sion, and that the tree is very
I may ay something about possible
storm damage.. A hurricane, such as
smote us throo years ago, levels to
to tho ground ovory banana within
its scope, making it necessary t
clean up and replant. A castilloa
treo can hardlj he uprooted, as it is
very supple. Its head might be
blown off or the tree broken off twen
ty feet up. Well, should this occur,
it seems to me that it might do good
by saving ono tho expense of pollard
ing; for it only came to my know
ledge yesterday- a suggestion has
lately been made by one of the auth
orities on rubber cultivtion to
thumbnail out the leading shoot of a
tree when twelvo feet to fifteen feet
high, to make the treo branch and
tho trunk develop a largor tapping
area than it would have if tho treo
SINGER SEWING MACHINES
Cannot be obtained through merchandise dealers. They are delivered
directly from innkcr to user ony through the Company's own em
ployees. There is as great a difference in the cost of making sewing
liinchiiios ns there is in making watches. A cheap watch will indicate
time with fair accuracy for a short time, l'airy good stitching can be
done on some of the old patterns of cheap sewing machines when they
ore new, hut they always work hard, are noisy and toon wear out.

The cnstilloa is a hardy tree. Three
yenry ago a sapling was crusho'l to
tho ground by a heavy treo fal. ing on
it. It was bent near the ground like
a golf club, and tho bark was bruised
and abrased. Wo Immediately- re
lieved it and kept it uptight for a
short timu by-means of a stake. At
the present titno tho tree is erect,
and has to bo closely oxamined foi

Young trees havo to bo looked

insect and kept freo from vinos: and
after plant'ng this is alUho cultiva-

posed to heat, only- had weeding of

that attacks orange trees, and one
or t wo brushings with a soap omul
sion aro all that is reouired to cleanse
the tree. If a young plant, say, two
or three feet high, has this scalo in
sect and escapes notice, grow
th ceases, and the top shrivels. Cut
oil the diseased part; then a vigorous
shoot appears and grows apace. I
do not know any other plant that
requires so little cultivation.
i our correspondent, speaking of
tho East, saysr "Quito a number of.
small companies have been floated
whose purpose is to root up all tho
old plantations of ton, cocoa, coffee,
etc, and plant in their place the
famous Hovca braziliensis, or Para
,rubbor-troe." This is not what wo
arc doing in the West. We are
planting through, both young and es
tablished cocoa. Some of my most
promising trees are growing along
with cocoa, which, as yet, yields just
as much as before I planted the rub
Now, sir, seeing how well tho rub
bor-treo grows in Jamaica, and that
it can bo cultivated at comparatively
very litUe expense, and that Sir Al
fred Jones has brought the island
within ten or eleven days of England,
why should so many young men of
capital exile themselves by going to
the East, so far away, when thoy
might do well here so near "home"?
It must be because Jamaica is so
little known in Engjand. Those who
are intondtng to plant rubber should
first of all come to Jamaica and have
a look round. They could get a
cheap passenge by the Imperial
Direct Liue. I should bo pleased to
show them my cultivation and give
them' full information as a planting
and things generally. And Going an
Englishman, and having lived conti
nuously nearly forty years in,Jamai-
ca, I can also say a good deal in
praise of its delightful climate.
