Vanilla Bean Culture
In Seychelles Islands
Curing the Pods for Market.
Thcro aro many different modes of
preparing vanilla, but for brevity's
uaI;o one atone will be dcscilbcd; It la
probably tho simplest, and appears to
Lc ns successful as nuy other. About
400 of the longest pods are placed In a
basket and plunged Into hot water
(l'JO F) for ten seconds; this Is re
peated twice, tho dips being Increased
to twelve and fifteen seconds respec
tively, with Intervals of half n minute
between each two. After tho third dip.
when most of the water has drained
off, the pods are placed In a wooden box
or barrel lined with blankets, nnd.
closely covered up with the same ma
terial. Wh-n lot 1 Is llnlsheit, lot 2 Is
similarly tuated, and for them the
water may be a few degrees cooler or
the dipping times a trills shortened;
and so also with lot No. 3, while No. I
may be treated as No, 2. I'crhaps It U
ns well to add that 1001', Is not an abso
lutely essential heat, but Is ntiout nn
high as It Is Bate to go; while even
tho longest pods may bo adequately
treated In water at 170' F. If they aro
kept In It long enough. An experienced
preparer will be guided more by tho
appearance of the pod nftcr each dip
than by any fixed formula. Where
small qauntltles are dealt with less
heat Is needed, and tho above figures
arc given for a boiler 22 Inches In
diameter by 12 Inches deep. It Is best
to have good sized boxes or barrels to
sweat tho pods In, thoso holding 2000
or 3000 each being preferable, for tha
more pods thcro arc together tho bet
ter heat Is rctnlncd. The lots (1, 2, 3,
nnd 4) should be kept apart, a fold of
blanket being laid on each If all go
Into one box. l)y tho following morn
ing they should hae changed to choco
late or puce color, nnd nre then ready
to spread on tho drying shelves; hut II
there Is a largo number together, and
the heat has been well kept In, they
may bo left for another twenty tout
A curing house for preparing a cror
up to 2000 pounds (dry) may have the
following dimensions and fixings; 30
feet long, 15 feet broad, 13 feet In
height of walls. It should be divided
Into four compartments two on tho
ground nnd two nbovc, each being ap
proximately lSxlS and G',4 feet high.
One compartment on the ground floor
is used as a hot loom, having a fluo
2 feet wide covered with sheet Iron
running through tho center. If the heat
is too Intense from this, sand may be
sprinkled on top to rcduco It. Above
this flue nnd around two sides of the
hot chamber tiers of shelves are fixed
six inches apart, on which the pods
arc spread to dry. The shelves may be
contenicntly made of laths, on top of
which mats or canvas can be laid; or
flno-meshed wire netting would servo
the same purpose, perhaps, better than
anything else. j
Average Temperature 110 Degrees F.
A good average heat for the hot
chamber Is 110 F. A few degrees more
or less docs not matter, but pods aro
apt to dry too quickly If the heat Is
mucli greater. The slower the pro-1
cess the more uniform and better tho .
result. As they begin to turn and
show longitudinal wrinkles, the pods
nro removed, and after reaching a cer
tain degree of flxlblllty nro removed to i
another room and thcro finish their
curing. If kept too long In cither n1
hot or n warm room tho thin ends of
pods shrink too quickly, and this Is to
bo avoided. In a largo crop thero nro
always somo inferior. Ill-nourished
pods, In which this occurs, but tho last
remark will bo useful to a beginner.
When fully cured the pods aro much
wrinkled and pllnblc, bending easily
around one's finger. Thero Is consider
able difference in tho degrco of dryness
preferred by different curcrs. If tho
contents move easily all along a pod,
without any unovenness being noticed
when It Is drnwn between the linger
and thumb. It Is nearly dry enough;
but tin. right Btage can only be learned
Whn finished the pods aro well
wiped with bits of BOft flannel and then
Grants of Public Lands
Would Benefit Hawaiians
Fom his mode of life, and tho fait
that ho can so arrange his crops as to
bo nearly, If not quite Independent of
his neighbor, tho Intelligent, educated, I
and thrifty farmer I believe to be of
tho highest class of citizenship.
Tho homestead laws of tho United
States havo done much to create good
citizens; and tho Irrigation plan.j
which I hope will be adopted at this,
session of Congress, will assist greatly
In settling our Western States with a.
healthy. Intelligent folk.
For years wo hnvo sought, In Ha
waii, to induce tho government to
treat our peoplo moro fairly, nnd al
low them to scttlo on tho public lands.
But. as generally known, tho govern
ment picferrcd to rent the public lands
to tho sugar Interests on long lenses.
Whllo the President, In his mc6sago to
Cong! ess, strongly recommends tho nl
luttnicnt of theso lands to the natives
' in small holdings, It, nevertheless, has
kept In boxes with close-fitting lids.
It Is belter to sort them roughly Into
lengths as each day's lot Is put away
and tic up the various Blzcs In bundles
of about 200 each If the numbers allow
of It, for they havo to bo cxnmlned once
or twlco a week In order to remove the
moded ones, nnd this Is much more
quickly done with bundles than when
hey aro loose. Moreover, It makes the
iltlmnto accurato measuring easier.
3lther at this lime or later the differ
ent qualities nm more exnitly separat
ed, none but faultless pods, without
3cnr or defect In curing, being allowed
In the first quality. The rest rank as
seconds, etc. The split pods and tho
pod3 that have been cut on account ol
mold nre also kept distinct. It Is well
to krep a crop nt least three or four
months boforo marketing. Hy that
time nearly nil shaky pods that are li
able to mold will hnc shown them
solus. All arc then measured and tied
up In' neat bundles of fifty pods each
of even lengths, tho pods varying In
length not more than one-eighth of an
Something About Price.
The general sightliness of a market
ed crop has much Influence on tin)
price It will bring, and whatever whims
buyers get Into their bends the pro
ducer must conform to or suffer in
pocket, llunille tying is something ot
an art. and a deft hand at It Is valu
able. Sixteen or thereabouts of the
shapeliest pods In each fifty aro se
lected for tho outside; tho rest arc
tied up as a rore, being kept In posi
tion with a few turns of the fiber tying
cord, while the chosen sixteen aro care
fully placed round them. The bundle
Is tied In cither thrco places, near each
end and In the middle, or In two places,
an Inch or moro from tho ends, accord
ing to the length ot bundle. The core
holding string Is pulled out beforo the
final tlo Is fixed. Two-tlo packets arc
boxed as they arc. With those of three
tics buyers prefer that tho end cords
be removed before packing, to enable
them to examine tho bundles Instdo
nnd seo It the contents arc of uniform
quality. If kept tied somo time before
being pnekrd the bundles set. ns It
were, and retain their neat shape. The
tin boxes used hero for packing vanilla
In measure 12V4x8W Inches In width,
aro 4H Inches deep, nnd hold twelve
pounds. Knch box has a label pasted
on It which hears the grower's trade
mark, the length and number of
packets, their qunllty, and net weight,
nnd a simitar label Is put insldo. As
tome chemical action Is set up when
anllla rests In contact with tin or
Iron, thin vegetable parchment paper
Is placed )n the boxes to keep tho two
apart. The lids arc then sealed close
with pasted paper and tho tins racked
In wooden cases, six In each, nnd thus
dispatched to market.

church parlors yesterday afternoon.
Mrs. Helsbow, superintendent of tho
antl-clgarctte departmentn, report
ed thata pledges hd been general
ly distributed amongst boys, A Japan
ese gentleman was distributing them
among his own people. Mrs. Illesbow
recommended that literature on tho
subject printed In Hnwallan bo distri
buted among the Hawaiians.
Mrs; J. to. Whitney, president of tho
society, called tho attention of th.i
meeting to the Savings Hank for school
schlldren, giving n detailed account of
tho system. Mrs. Whitney referred to
tho success which this system, whero
the school children deposited their sav
ings with their teacher who In turn de
posits them In a lornl bank, had met
v Ith In tho States whero It was now In
vogue In hundreds of schools.
Statistics on the subject showed sur
prising results nnd Mrs. Whitney
strongly recommended that tho system
bo ndoptcd In our schools. Tho sav
ings bank syBtcm worked untold bene
fits by teaching children thrift and had
tho effect of putting a stop to using
their sparo nickels for the purchasa
of cigarettes, cheap candy, etc.
It wns this Inst phaso which especial
ly appealed to the W. C. T. V. as a fac
tor In Its fight ngalnst cigarette smok

It was decided at the meeting to
make tho furtherance of the school
savings bank one of the I'ulon's Issues

agitate tho idea this summer nmong
tho teachers, ns well ub among tho pa
