. RUBBER IN MEXICO.
Editor Evening nulletln
-Will you be kind enough (o gtvo
mo n llttlo space In your valuable
paper to discuss a matter that Is
Interesting the Investing public fur
and wtdo tho world over, to wit: tho
planting of rubber?
Since the first returns began to
come In from cultivated rubber trees
In Mexico, It has been conclusively
proved thnt tree for tree of a samu
age, tho Castllloa In Mexico has
yielded about twlco ns much ns tho
trees In Ceylon and tho Malay States.
And when the product of the Cas
tllloa Elastic.! (the Mexican tree) Is
properly prepared, It outranks any
other variety In strength, elasticity
and keeping qualities, and, com
mands the highest price.
"Castllloa Elastlca Is a rapid
grower, attaining In Palcnquo dis
trict, In the Stato of Chiapas,- Mex
ico, n diameter of ten to twclto
Inches nnd a height of forty to fifty
feet In six years from planting.
John Dryton, Consul."
"In a recent official report by tho
Ilrltlsh Minister to Mexico, that -gentleman
makes the following state
ment ns to the average yield of rub
ber trees under cultivation: Trees
six years old will nverngo 2 lbs, por
tree; seven years, 3 lbs. per tree;
eight years, 4 lbs. per tree."
To produce a good rubber plan
tation, enre Is required, as In any
other crop. Tho land may be as
good on an adjoining plantation, but
for want of proper care, Instead of
having a producing plantation in a
given number of years, poor cultiva
tion, etc., will retard tho first har
vest by many years, besides giving
a stunted growth In your tree.
I quote from n letter reculved
from our president by last steamer.
He writes from e plantation where
he went on a tour of Inspection. Mr.
Ilehnrrell writes: "The trees aro
uniform in girth and height, and,
comparing them as wo did with trees
four years old on an adjoining plan
tation, find our two-year-old trees
equal to, and, as a whole, even bet
ter than those planted two years be
fore on the neighboring plantation,
though the soil and nitural condi
tions nro practically the same, the
only difference being that our trees
have had better care, for which our
manager, Mr. C. A. McJohnston, de
serves much credit. As soon ns wo
landed on Mexican soil, we found
the Castllloa nnd Mr. McJohnston fn

manager spoken of in highest
