Some cue has said of riea land. " Tickle the soil with
a has. and il will laugh with a bwrrwrt." The fer
tility of tbe cultivated laud here, naiads me of that
saying. Bat let say at the outset, the proportion
of arable land te the whole surface, is vary small, as
far as I have seao, I think, little, if anything, saore :
than cue-twentieth- The mass of it is hills aud
saoaataina. so steep and craggy that it is of very lit
tle use even f r pastaraga. And I am told thai lb a
il a general characteristic of the eoaatry. But to re
turn ; the haw laid being is a measnrc a. 'u ial is very
rich, and though almost constantly cultivated, yet
being well manured it retains its fertility. I think

were set so close to each tbarsmha: the paddy was
stripped off in tae process aud 9m into tbe box. The
straw anas then bconu in gvod sized bandies and
stacked or shocked. Occasionally it was slacked
around the bodies of tall, slim trees, the tranches be
ing all removed. Bat the slacks were uniqua. being
ef the same diameter from top u. bottom and 15 or rU
feet high. The sbtcka are merely capped lo shed
rain. The straw is used for fodder, thatch, "e. Of
the straw, bnfli are made, not by braiding but by ris
ing it tiarfctiy together m wisps, and in these a t anety
ef dry, balky articles are transported. Into such, the

cows, to the bulling null which ia a long boas with a -wheel
in it tamei by water, brought by an acaedact j

When the hall is all loosened by pounding, the rice is
lifted or washed out. bagged and carried bom or to ;
market. I think ery little paddy is helled by manual :
Ubor as in Honolulu, bet I have seen it done.
I saw a crop of rice taken off. and io about three
weeks the ground had been dog ocer and then with a
very primitirs plow draws by a heifer or cow. thrown
into ridges about three feet wide, Ii to lc inches apart,
and planted with two rows of wheat or barley about
a loot apart in drills. These ridges though oecaaion

considerably, says their fields, patches rather, being
usually less than an acre in extent, seem like wall

sent a beautify! sight.
But to foreigner walking or living near Hsea there
is a serious drawback, la manuring. Chop use freely
ni'ht soil and urine, spreading tbem on the surface ;
of the ground loading the air with their odious enta- j
vium. T-e Japanese, as is said of the Lu:ch, seem
to have so sense of smell. This kind of manuring is
believed to bare serious effect on the water which lies
only It or lo feet below the surface. Hence soma
wiil not drink it unless boiled or filtered, and it is said
tbe same mode at manuring is practised in the south j
ere part of China, and hence the uniform practise of .
the Chinese to boil water bef .re using it
As above remarked, thia country is exceedingly !

Dear GazCTTX- Let me tell you 1 little shout
the birds, truits and flowers of this land. It has
been said this is a country of birds without note,
traits without flavor and flowers without fragrance;
bu: I affirm that is a great exaggeration. Still, I ad
mit, that as far ia 1 have sees, its birds, fruits and
flowers ire, when compared with what I have seen
elsewhere, considerably below par, in the points
The crows, give ns kaw. kftw, kaw, abundantly,
morning and evening, bat being cnmolested, they
arc very bold, and very voracious of young poultry,
they are a great nuisance, rendering it necessary to
raise chickens under baskets of split bamboo. In
the cool months we hare sparrows, or snow birds,
constantly chirping and twitteriLg. Also the Eng
lish lark which sings sweetly as sae soars op toward
the sua. We have tbe stork and other water fowls,
also plover and other mountain birds, but all these
I believe, are noteless. I know of only one bird
that seems to delight la singing, and that, I suppose
is s foreigner or a descendant of one; it is a canary.
Be often salutes us when we ester the room.
Our fruit although considerably inferior, is not
all so. Bitter grapes, strawberries or persimmons,
1 never ate. Tbe berries sre not only fine flavored,
bat twice as Urge as those which I saw at tbe Is
lands, some of them being an Inch in diameter, and
only half as expensive. The persimmons, (to one
who has seen asd eaten them in N. J. ) sre surpris
ing both for flavor and size. Our peaches are better
than Hawaiian, apples, pears and quinces ire relish
ible when cooked, plums, wild cherries led other
wild frail are abundant- Oranges are small bat
equal to ordinary Hawaiian. Bet tbe flowers
This might well be called a flowering land. Many
beaatL'ul ones, the morning glory among them, grow
well. I regret, that in many cases I cannot ttli
they art exotic or indigenous. I will first
a few which I am told are native beaaties.

large and tall ot petals like a full blown rose. The
peony, there are three varieties, pink, white and
red, when full blown is about 6 inches In dUmeter.
We tire many roses of virions colon, some of them
climbers, screening a large part of a verandah, sad
sometimes loaded with flowers.
We hare s great variety of ornamental shrubbery.
The most interesting, I think ire tbe pines and the
cedars of which there are severs! varieties, some of
very deep green and thick foliage. Ton have beard
of their fern balls. They sre sometimes made in the
form of s canoe, with green ferns springing out of
every part ssd always enclosed in s net to be sus
pended wherever the owner chooses. But these arc
trifles, concerning which, were I able to labor for
this people, I should have neither time nor inclina
