Tho soil around the young plant

ants. If tho soil becomes so rich as
to attract ants or giubs, ashes must
be applied, for the tree is easily
ruined by such insects. If the soil

dry manures may be applied the first
year, but in after seasons, fresh ashes,

Distinct leiiilcts will begin to show
themselves at the end of tbe (list
year, and be completed at the end of
the second. Accoiding to the soil
and location, the moisture and hu
midity of the climate, the spathes or
shoots from which eventually the
dowers are to appear will begin to
show in ft oin four to ten years.
In six months fiom blossoming the
nuts will have the kcinel begin to
solidify, and in a year the fiuit is
At the end of the first year tho
soil should be dug up and ashes ap
plied about once a month. When
the tree is two years old and hence
forward annually during the dry sea
son the whole ol the soil a jard or
two round the stein must be opened
out and ashes with dry manure ap
plied and left open to the air. This
prevents a tendency to form a sort of
bulb and throw roots above the soil,
and it promotes the vigor of the tree.
Some Co) Ion planlei s sprinkle ashes
and salt about the spike shoots to
keep insects away, and tho applica
tion of salt and ashes to the tree lops
is usual to keep off tbe swaims of
insects, paiticularly red ants who
live uiioii the juices of the tree and
lender them fruitless.
The diied floods, old spathes, fruit
and blossom stocks and ragged llbres
should be removed at stated peiiods
of perhaps a month, or as often as
the nuts aie gathered.
Sunlight is most beneficial to the
cocoanut tiee ; it increases the num
ber of successive fionds and the
ciopsof iruit, while if much shade
is caused by tiees of other kinds,
there is a tendency in the lower part
of the cocoanut stem to thicken, while
the upper part grows thin and atten
uated, with fronds at considerable
intervals and little fruit. Exposure
to regular breezes is also beneficial
and makes a stronger tree than those
in shekel ed positions. Abundant
nioistuic is also an essential condi
tion. In almost every country wheie the
cocoanut is grown, its chief enemy is
the rat, which is very fond of the
cocoanut and is veiy destructive.
Each tree has to be piotected by a
sheet of zinc nailed around it.
In the West Indies a "cocoanut
disease" has appeared which has
destioycd plantations in some paits
of Cuba and has caused serious
alaim, for in some districts the
cocoanut industiy is the sole de
pendence of the inhabitants. The
means used to extciminate the plague
is to trim down the diseased trees,
oi cut off the leaves w hen they show
that they are affected by commenc
ing to get yellow and dry, then burn
them under the lice with petioleum
and -sulphur, so as the fumes will rise
up and fumigate the other leaves
Thedisease is thought to be caused by
piotracted drouth and not likely to
affect trees in moist localities. It is
a cr ptogamian parasite: spots be
gin on the lower leaves which get
yellow anil dry, then the next upper
leaf is affected and so on till at the
end of three or four months the
Ieaes have all fallen, then a putrid
decomposition sets in and the tiee
Yn i.i). In the South Seas the an
nual yield is abuoiinally large, many
trees in full bearing piodueing as
many as 000 cocoanuts annunlly;
300 may bo stated as a fair average,
though in the Gilbeit and Marshall
Islands thn trees will produce that
many tw ice a year.
In other counliies where the tree
is systematically cultivated the yield
is not so large, varying from 00 to
200 per tree accoiding to soil and
location. The gicatost yield is on a
low and sandy soil near tho sea,
wheie there are pre ailing sea bree!cs
and abundant moisture.
Son. The soils suitable for a
cocoanut plantation aie variously
doscribed as below, particularly ob
seiviii" that stony grounds, or those
overlying rocky foundations, are to
be avoided :
1. Soils mixed with sand, cither
daik-coloied or river washed.
2. Wheie sand is mixed with clay,
feuuginouB earth, or block mould.
!1. Sand and clay, even wheie
mixed with giavel and pebbles.
1. Tho sea shore, banks of back
wateis, riveis and paddy fields.
5. Mai shy laud even in braskish
soils (but not where salt is formed
in ciyhtals by evaporation).

sea bieezo whcio the soil is good.

PULLMAN ELECTRIC CAR.
"1 feci as though I was going down
This was tho romatk mado by one
of the party which went out on tho
Pullman double-deck electric car,
says the Boston Globe, when it was
moved from the Bartlett-strcet repair
shop to the North-avenue stables in
Cambridge. Since the tiip of a few
nights ago, when the car met with so
many mishaps, many changes have
been made, and this trip was success
ful in every pailieular.
Despite the heavy rain which fell,
ncaily all the party rode on the up
per deck. The sensation was much
liko that of tiding on the deck of a
steamer. The run to Cambridge was
made via Shiwmut avenue, Tremont,
Court, Green, Chambers, Main and
Ilarvaul streets and North avenues
to the stables.
The car is a model of excellence in
its finish and reminds one of a stand
aid Pullman car. It will seat 7f
persons, ol downstairs, 1G in each
end and 2 on the platfoim, and 11
on the upper deck. The motor man
is stationed on the upper deck and is
shut in a small house, surrounded by
glass, so that his vision is not im
paired in any direction. It is
mounted on two eight-wheeled ti ticks
of the Pullman standard pattern, and
equipped with two 25-horso power
blasting motors. The brake is a
"friction brake," and the slightest
turn of the handle is enough to stop
the car within a quaiter of its length.
The lower part of the car is light
ed by fltteen incandescent lanips,
and the upper deck by ten. It is
heated by electricity. It is upholst
ered and carpeted like a standard
Pullman car. The entrances are in
the center of this car from cither
side. Here the conductor stands
and signals the motor man by an
electric bell. Push-buttons in the
interior of the car are for passengers
to use in signaling to the conductor.
The car will be run.bctwcen Noith
avenue and Bowdoin square.and will
start at once unless something un
In a recent issue of the Advertiser

citizens was made public in the

It certainly seems rather unneces
sary to throw a dictionary at the
heads of a few ladies and gentlemen
who for the private amusement of
their fiiends get up an occasional
farce or comedy, and it ceitainly is
a new departure in the daily papers
here to disparage such we'll meant
efforts by a reference evidently in
tended to be saicastic.
For thealiical performances Hono
lulu is almost entiiely dependent on
amateur talent, and while the writer
bad not the good foitune to be one
of the audience on last Thursday
evening, he has no hesitation in say
ing that from what be has heard in
leirard thereto, and has seen Hono
lulu amateurs' put before the public
for instance "Pinafore," "Patience,"
and tbe "Mikado," in the musical
line, "Everybody's Friend," "Scrap
of Paper" and like comedies, it
would lie far better to suggest a
public performance from the com
pany playing Williams' popular farce
last week than to try and discouiage
them by doubtful compliments or
thinly veiled innuendoes.
