nt last lost in nn obscurity that, hi
liejond the penetrating powers of
those Interested, nnd the uninterest

be said ot sugar-producing cane.
The original home of the sugar cane,
to far as seekc.B for knowledge In
that particular- line ascertained, Is
in southeastern Asia, and the Chi
nese, who are credited with being
the originators of many of the
world's arts, both lost and in prac
tice today, wero the first people to
Increase the production of cnno by
a proper cultivation and Irrigation

the Juice obtained from tho enne in

This happy cent, which has since
contributed Its share toward sweet
ening up tho old country, was
hi ought about nt the tlnio Alexan
der the Great was sweeping nil na
tions before htx mighty armies. To
him history cnults the intuiductlon
ot sugar Into Europe, thcteb) leav
ing some sweet with his bitter. The
Introduction ot sugar Into Europe
at that early period must have been,
according to history at hand, an
ecnt of such similar Importance as
tho Introduction of the electric
light, the telegraph and the wireless
In this Inter age. A certain ms
lery seemed to obscuro tho Initial
beginning of sugnr, and many class
ical authors treated the world about
them to theories on Its production.
That sugnr was produced from cone
the) nil knew, b.it while they were
acquainted with sugar Itself by Its
recent Introduction to their land,
of cane they knew little or nothing.
The theory of one of the noted writ
ers of that day was that sugar was
a sort ot honey that formed Itself In
sups attached to the cane. Another
nlrcd his knowledge ot sugar by stat
ing that it was a concretion of Juic
es formed by the cane plant in the
manner ot n thick gum.'
The commercial Intercourse be
tween tho eastern and western world
of the Oilcnt came to an abrupt
end at tho fall of the Roman Em
pire, and the feelings were so bitter
that laws "were enacted that placed
a severe penalty on nny attempt nt
nn exchange of commodities be
tween the Eact ad the West. Dur
ing the time that tMs condition of
nffulri continued, which ran some
what oer a rentury, knowledge ot
the Chinese sugnr plant, as cane
was called at that time, became lost.
At the beginning ot the Crusades
the tnbu on tho exchange ot com
modities was removed, principally
thiotigh tho strong-voiced senti
ments of Venice nnd Genoa, who de
fled the combination ot nations by
again opening up the ancient Inter
com so between tlyj Mediterranean
and the Tar East. It was then, in
tho lattor part of tho eleventh cen
tury, that exports df sugar wero
sent out from China to the Western
world. In the meantime, thrnnirli'
Vomo unknown source, cnno had been
Introduced Into Egjpt, nnd from
there It crossed the Mediterranean,
and In the beginning of tho twelfth
century tho plains of Etna, sur--oundlng
