Transplanting has to he done when
the weather Is favmable unit after
the land has been cleared nnd burn
ed. As dry weather Is necessary for
a good burn, tho time for transplant
lug varies nnd depends on weather
conditions. The )oung trees nro
planted lu rows, but the dlstnnco be
tween tho trees and between tho
rows varies a great deal on different
plantations. There Is n difference
of opinion on this point, but it Is
generally considered to be n fact that
pirating closer than -00 trees por
acre is n failure.
Kffect of Close riautlug If trees
are planted too close together they
grow tall and hnvo small leaf area

tapped surface ns quickly as lit wider

sary to lost a too closely planted for
est, whllo continuous tapping can bo
mndo on wider plantings.
In talking with the gentleman who
planted theso trees he stntcd that If
he wero planting for himself ho
would plant nt least M x 1M (71 per
aero), and perhaps .10x30 (ICi per
aero). Thnt ho would do this with
the idea ot making good prollt twen

earlier ycarB. Eight hundred trees
In this planting average n yield for
tho )car of bovcu pounds, or -120
pounds of rubber per neie.
Tapping Ilovca Is usually tapped
every second or third day with rests
every dry season. Some estates tap
ns above for fifteen tappings nnd
then rest tho trees from three to five
months. For iiislnnce, they will tap
an aica ono dayfand another the next
day. It tho tries aro planted wldo

tu iu iitiiun ii jjjur. lapping is usu
ally done In tho morning before tho
heat of the day. Some of tho larger
plantations tap nil day or until 'i
o'clock. Tho flow Is better In tho
early morning. To tap, a farrier's
knife, a carpenter'B gougo or some
Bpeclal tapping tool, is uted to cut
tho hark. A lateral cut in tho bark
Is made, care being taken not to cut
tin ougli tho ramba'ln; It Is madn in
such a way that the latex runs down
In a groovo until It reaches a tin or
aluminum cup which is placed nt tho
foot of tho tree.
Slost of the remarks, in rcfcrcnco
to Hcvcii apply also to Ceara with
Eomc Impoitant exceptions.
Twcnty-threo years ngo Ceara was
planted as sli.tdo for tea plnnls, but
on account of Inexperience In tapping
and as tho Ceara trees were not bal-
Isfaetory as shade, they were, unfor
tunately, nearly nil cut out. Ceara
rubber liees can bo planted and will
grow well at higher elevations than
Ilcven. Most of the Ceara trees I
examined wero growing at nn ultu

to rainfall, Cearn does best where
there Is CO to 120 Inches of rnln per

only sixty Inches per annum. The

Twenty members of tho crew wero

refuted duty later when, after a
hard day's work, Shorey ordored Hint

by the captain yielding and ordering
tho cook to servo it microscopic sam

The men blame Captain Sliorcy
for tho small catch. Thoy say Hut
