Horticulture Is doubtless our great
est attraction In ngtlculture and offers
tho most delightful of all rural uecu.
patlons. Us charm lies partly In tho
nesthctlcal atmosphere by which It Is
surrounded and which appeals strongly
to the rudest of nature.
The evolution of a fruit crop Is one
succession of agreeable and Inspiring
surprises. Climatic conditions, nowhere
clso to be found on tho mainland, ex
ist here. This condition makes Ha
waii exceptionally a favorite place In
which to practice diversified agricul
ture. What Is a Fig?
There Is an old saying: "Enjoy llfo
under our own vine nnd Sg tree,"
which Is Indicative of the many attrac
tions of California horticulture life.
What Is a flg? Do you evor sec Its
flowers? To the layman It merely rep
resents a moss of pulp enclosed In a
thin skin. To tho botanist, the outer
covering Is a receptacle for the thou
sands of inconspicuous flowers, nnd
tho wholo is called an Inflorescence.
What Is a Smyrna Flg and In what
respectB does It differ from other figs?
Tho general character of tho tree and
fruit Is apparently the Bamc as In oth
er figs, and the only guide a grower
has, that his trees may possibly be
long to the Smyrna class Is that their
fruits never maturu.
A proper understanding of the sub
ject can only be arrived at by dividing
tho e'dlblc fig (Flcus Carlca) into tbrcs
(1) The Wild or Capri,
(2) Tho Smyrna,
(3) The Adriatic.

The Wild or Capri Class.
It Is from this clnss undoubtedly that
all species of cdlblo flgs sprung, and
tho Improved, fruit Is tho result of
years of cultivation and hybridization.
The only value this class of figs pos
sesses. Is to furnish a home for the
minute wasp, "Illastophaga Orossor
urn" for It Is only in it that the Insect
can breed and exist.
It produces throe crops annually,

try made a great mistake. In recon
struction times, when It put the ballot
Intu the hands ot tho negro. Doubt
His most ot the people will agree with
that conclusion, but tho suffrage was
given to the blacks upon tho samo con
ditions as It has always been given to
the whites In the South, and (t was not
suggested by tho experience ot the
South before the war, nor has tho con
duct of the Southern whltej mce tho
wnr given rise to the suggestion that
manhood suffrage was a failure.
Hut tho main purpose of the article
appears when tho scene Is shU'tol to
Hawaii, where things are In n tsrrlble
mess, owing to tho American system c f
annexation. It looks as If President
Roosevelt might be persuaded to re
move Governor Dole at least we hear
of n special representative ot the Prei
Idcnt going out thero to learn the tacts
first hand and not tako the statements
of Governor Dole and tbo Governor
has been one of tho leading representa
tives ot tho whlto American Influence
of the Islands. The coniphlnt Is thaC
the suffrage ought not to have been
given to the native Hawailans. Dut
If we had not annexed the Islands, 'his
trouble would not have arisen. The
population thero waB not ready for the
American system of government. Al
ready tho Islands have caused us more
trouble thnn they have been of benefit.
nnd It remains yet to be shown that
the annexation was a wise measure,
it has never yet appeared that we
could not havo secured without an
nexation all the advantages which we
expected to gain by It, while we would
have nvolded the Interference of Ha
waiian matters with the business of
the United States proper, for which we
need all the time of Congress and all
the money which we can raise by tax
ation. Hut when It comes to manhood suf
frage, it is not shown by the experi
ence of Hawaii that It Is a failure, but
It Is more evident that what Is needed
Is nn educational qualification, such as
we hac In Massachusetts, but which Is
not In force In most ot the States, and
In retaining which Massachusetts gives
thn Southern States opportunity to
fling nt her tho charge that she Is as
unconstitutional as they arc with their
shotgun arguments. Intelligence is
re quired fur tho suffrage, as fully 'in
this country as It Is In Hawaii and tor
the Southern and Northern whites' as
for the blacks. We hope. In tlmo, to
see the entire country como to the
staud of Massachusetts,
