and secondly, because more than 800
acres, or nearly one-fourth of tho area
for tho present crop consists of short
ratoon cane, which It has been neces
sary to ralso In order to cquallto the
crops. Most of the fields wcro badly
attacked by lcaf-hoppcr during last

of the crop has been seriously affected
by this pest. Tho weather has been

field had to be abandoned, tho cano
being partly used for seed, and tho
yield from the remaining 200 acres
will bo very small.
Tho grinding of tho crop of 1906
woa commenced on January 3d. A
shortage of labor In tho beginning of
the season, and a general strike, last
ing a wholo week, during January, hni
set the grinding somewhat back, but
being at present well supplied with
labor, and everything running smooth

come off In good time. '
Crop of 1907: For tho eron of 1907
there are now under cultivation C79
