nnd tho method of hanging and drying
the rubber Is excellent. Tho tapping

The sculo of wages throughout the
Fedcrnted Malay States Is, ns n rule,
higher than the scale In Johore, nnd
In former yenrs we had tho ndvantnge.
Lately, however, owing to the coolies
moving nbout much more than pre
viously, our coolies have got to know
thnt they can obtain much higher
wages In tho Federated States, and In
consequence, to keep coolies, I havo
had to Increase wages nil around. This
Is regrettable, but quite unavoidable.
The output of dry rubber for tho
year was i:!,T00?i pounds, as against
1.33CH pounds for 1910, which, 1 con
sider, as hclng fairly satisfactory. Dur
ing the early part of tho year wo ex
perienced a prolonged drought, which
was very detrimental to the How of la
tex. This drought occurred Just at the
tlmo when tlio trees were wintering,
ami tno wintering nnd drought com

months to ret over.

Tho manager's esttmalo for It'll
was J12.r,00 gold. This estimate, how
ever, was exceeded by $21,393.19 gold.
ns wo remitted to tno estate during
tho year tho sum of 103,893.49 gold.
From tho accounts It will bo wen that
tho weeding for tho year cost us $19,
405.B2, gold, whllo III 1909, the year the
plantqtlon was overrun with lalang,
the weeding cost us onlv $17,500.13
gold. Hoads and drains, which Is prin
cipally draining oxuonso, was $3807.92
gold more In 1911 than during tho pre
vious yenr. Clearing has cost us $1,

In our repoit of nycar ago and also

NCD upon a lime," said daddy ono evening, "there were four animals
which had formerly been useful to their owner, but they had be
como old and of no moro uso, so their owner decided to kill them In.
order to sayo tho cxpeuao of fecdlug lliciu. The animals ncrn n
donkey, n dog, n, cat and n rooster. When tho poor nntmnls heard their owner
talking nbout killing them they beenmo very sad. The donkey said: .
"'I know what wo can do. All four of ug linvo flno voices. 1 can brny
tho dog can bark, tbo cat can meoiv. and tho rooster can crow, Let's iuu away
to town and mnko our living ns musicians.'
") "Thnt seemed to bo n good Idea, so tho four ran nwny and set out for town.
When evening enmo they had walked n long dlslanco nnd were tired nnd'
hungry, but they bad no food and no place to sleep but In tho woods. Then
tho donkey snld to tho rooster, 'Climb up Into n treo nnd look uround.'
"When tho rooster camo down ho said bo had seen n light n little dlstnnco,
off. The. light was la a bouso belonging to a band of robbers, but tho animals.
c)ld not know that When tboy reached tbo liouso tbo donkey put his forefeet
on tno window, tno nog climbed on his back, tlio cat on tho dog aud tuu rooster;
on tho cat. They saw n lot of men seated around n table, ,
"Then tho donkey brayed, tho dog bnrked. tho cat meowed nnd the roosterl
crowed nil nt onco nnd mndo a terrible nolso thnt frightened tho robbers so.
they ran nwny Into tho woods. Then tho anlmnls went In nnd hnd n grand
feast. After that thoy went to sleep. j
"Toward midnight tho robber captain, who hnd lost some of his fright,;
camo back to seo what bad scared him nnd Ids men. When ho entered tbo
room bo started to light n match nt tbo cat's eyes, which ho mistook for llvo'
coals. Then tbo cat Jumped nt him. and scratched his face, tho dog bit him In)
tho leg, nnd tho donkey kicked him, whllo tho rooster crowed as loudly ua ho'
could, no run nwny, terribly scared.
"When tho robber cnptaln went back to his men ho snld: 'Wo bad better!
