The cocoanut nalm is widely dis-
setuinatcd throughout tropical coun
tries, and it is impossible to discover
its original habitat.
It attains its greatest vigor and
luxuriance on the sea shore, where it
gets the refreshing sen breezes, nnd
it is most at home in the innumer
able islands of the Pacific. Its
favorite localities arc on the low
lying coast lands of the West India
Islands, the East Indies, the Straits
Settlements, the Malay Archlpclngo,
Tiopical Africa and Tropical Am
erica, But the tree is most largely
congregated and utilized in Ceylon.
It is the most useful tree to the
natives of the regions whoic it grows,
all its parts being utilized in endless
variety of pui poses, and it is an im
portant artjele of food, cither in its
natural state or manufactured into
oil. Itis said to furnish food for over
100,000,000 of human beings, and
It furnishes many valuable and
important commercial" products, and
is the subject of careful cultivation
in many countries where largo sums
of money are invested in big planta
tions or "cocoanut walks" that are
everywhere prolltable. Its chief
comincicial value is for tho oil ob
tained from the fruit, and for the
fibre of the husk.
As a wholesomo food for man,
beast and bird, it is largely consum
ed in its' native habitats. The natives
of Ceylon and Malacca, living upon
no other food than this, will yet labor
vigorously day after day, while in
the Maldivc Islands, labor perform
ed .is more ficqueiitiy paid for in
cocoanuts alone. The gelatinous
albumen of the young nut is a deli
cate food containing all the constitu
ents of wholesome nourishment. As
it ripens the albumen hardens, and
though still edible is less digestible.
The milk of the young cocoanut is
an agreeable, niittltivc and healthy
beverage. In countries where pot
able water is not obtained, only the
milk of the cocoanut is drunk. In
Cuba cocoanut milk is highly valued
for its effect on the kidneys, and it
is one of the most popular cafe
It is the most valuablo pToduct of
the commerce of many countries,
and there is a constantly increasing
demand for the kernel, the oil and
the fibre. The cultivation is extend
ing lapidly in the regions where it
can be giown, but the civilized world
of the temperate zone can absoib all
the oil and fibre the tiopics are likely
to send for generations to come.
In the East Indies the palms are
caiefulty enumerated and in some
parts a yeaily tax is levied an each,
and even moitgages are commonly
secured to the extent of two shillings
to a tree.
Tiees growing in most feitile soils
will live for a century, others less fa
vored fiom 3ixty to eighty yeais on
ly; the former will yield their fruit
commencing from the fourth to the
tenth year, and in rare intervals con
tinue until their sixtieth year, and
then gradually decrease in fruitful
ness till they decay.
Planting. The nuts for sprouting
should be chosen from those thor
oughly ripe, having full large eyes,
gatheicd from trees past the middle
age not aged ones and from clus
ters containing few fruits. These, if
carefully planted, will be sure to
sprout and grow well and insure fu
ture luxuriance, longevity and contin
ued fiuitfulness. Nuts from old tiees
will have small eyes, the sprout will
be thin and weak, and the future tiee
will be irregular and deficient in its
produce. Nuts from immature trees
will, if they do not lot at the eyes,
grow rapidly and bulky, but the fruit
is liable to drop before it gets con
sistency, and the tiees will fail be
fore middle age.
The seed nuts should not dry on
the trees, for then they would not
have enough water to cheiish the
sprout, but being gathered at full
maturity must not be allowed to fall
to the ground, for it is a fatal injury
if the nut is ciacked or the polished
cover bruised so as to collect damp.
Unless tho seed nut is carefully gath
ered and pei feet the tree will be weak
When gathered, they should be
kept not less than a month before
being planted, in ordei that some of
the moisture be absorbed, and the
rind tie rendered dry and watei proof.
If planted too soon the outer fibre
and eyes are liable to rot or send out
a sickly plant. If kept too long the
capsule of the eyes will fall off and
the exposure to damp will affect tho
germ and injure the growth.
The method of planting in Ceylon
.is thus described. "Tho first opera
tion in cocoanut planting is the foi
malion of a nursery, for which pur
pose the ripe nuts aro placed in
squaics containing about 400 each;
these are covered an inch deep with
sand and Bea-weed pr !oft mud from
the beach, and watered daily till they
germinate. The nuts put down in
Apri' arc sutllciently grown to bo
planted out before the rains of
September, and they aie then set out
in holes 3 feet docp'and 20 to DO feet
apart. Before putting in the young
plant it is customary to lied the roots
vili soft mud and sea-weed, and for
tho first two years thej' must be
wateied and protected from the glare
of the sun under shades made of tho
plaited fronds of the cocoanut palm,"
The nurseries should be exposed
somewhat to the influence of llm fcun,
though not too much heat. With too
much exposure the water inside is
liable to dry up, or if too moist the
fibrous covering and the eyes will
rot, insectB will infest thorn, and the
seeds will come to grief. It Is better
however to have less than too much
Tile eed bell slidttltl bd tlllg at

plot or bed of land where water will

fiat on their sido about ono foot
apart. A mixture of salt and ashes
should bo put in the trenches to pre
vent destruction of the seed nut by
ants or other insects. Sand alono,
salt with ashes, or sand and paddy
husks, arc mixtures that should be
placed between the earth of the bed
and tho nuts and covered over them
Black salt, ashes mado from the
cocoanut husk, with sea sand, is the
To walcr the nursery, the soil
should simply be kept moist. If too
damp, rot is engendered, if too dry
the water in the nuts will evnporatc
and the shoots diy up. Careful
attention will cause the shoots to
sprout in about six months. Once
the tender shoot begins to appear the
greatest attention should be given
that it is not" injured by insects or
otherwise, for the slightest abrasion
will cause a want of vigor. If in
sects are visible, ashes or ashes and
salt should be applied.
Transplanting can bo done in the
second or third month after sprout
ing, but safe growth and vigor are
better assured if not moved for six
months. Transplanting should not
be done in the wet months, for the
fruitfulness of trees so planted will
be seiiously affected.
In most of the Pacific islands the
nuts arc sprouted by the natives by
hanging on the blanches 'of the
bread-fruit tree or under their shelter
until the shoots are long enough to
On tho giound where the trees are
to be planted pit9 about three feet
in depth and width should bo dug
sonic little tune picvious. The pits
should be about 23 feet apart, which
would give about 70 cocoanut palms
to the acie. This distance is neces
sary, for otherwise the trees not hav
ing room to expand, their tops repel
each other and grow crooked, and in
a wind would thrash off the flowers
and younjr fiult from each other.
Too dose a neighborhood also tends
to diaw up tho trees into long feeble
stems and small fiuit.
The fiesh earth of the pit is liable
to be full of ants a.nd woims and
itself injuiious to the new plant and
to hinder growth. They should there
fore be treated with a compost of
salt and sand in marshy or loamy
soils, or ashes on the sea-shore. In
side the pits smaller qnes should be
made and filled with salt and ashes
mixed with mould into which the
young plants aie to be planted, with
the nuts just coveted with this com
post. In India the good sized ripe nuts
from an old tiee are kept in a well of
water for three months, until they
geimiuate; they are then put into
the ground in beds, and watered
every day. In threj months more
they begin to grow up, and after
three years they are transplanted in
regular spaces of about 20 feet,
watered regularly cvcij utlici Ucy,
and manured occasionally. In that
hot arid country it takes the trees
about twelve years to come in heal
ing, and the yield is in proportion to
the caie taken to water and manure.

A FAVORITE REMEDY.
Cliaiiiberlain's Cough Remedy is a
favorite during the winter months on
account ol its gieat success in thr
cure of colds. Theie is nothing that
will loosen a severe cold so quickly,
or as promptly lelieye the lungs.
Then it counteracts any tendency to
waid pneumonia. It is pleasant and
safe to take, aiuLfully worthy of its
popuhuity. For sale by all dealers.
