A cocoanut grove begins to bear
fruit after six years, the crop being
gathered about two years later. Al
most every part of the tree can be
utilized. The coarse fiber of the bark
is woven into the familiar cocoa mat
ting, and used for all sorts of rough
purposes. The leaves will serve as
a thatch, and the strong midribs make
excellent brooms or twine. The big
central half bud Is cooked and eaten,
tasting much like cabbage.

he other day, "and you can't think
what a saving of work It is. The laun
dress has so many tub frocks and shirH
waists to do up each week she is quite
overwhelmed as it is. Rather than
tumbled cloths I prefer a bare table.
Beside, even for dinner at night, the
polished table, with its handsome cen
terpiece, its flowers and its silver and
pretty china. Is attractive. It seems
to me quite as elegant as a table with
a white cloth over It. and it is infinite
ly more summery. Through the sum
mer we try to live ln a summer-like
way, leaving for cold weather the
amusements and customs of winter
and civilized life. We find It lends va

Stammering Clerk's Explanation Was
a Good One.
In a certain law office In this city
there Is a clerk who Is afflicted with
occasional fits of stammering. Re-
contly he was sent to servo some pa"
pers on another lawyer. Upon pre
senting himself before the man be
had to see he drew out tho papers
and tried to make a few explanatory
remarks, but for all bis gagging and
couching not a word could he utter.
The lawyer who was to be served was
of an Irascible temperament, and he
stood the clerk's sputtering as long
as he could. "Come, come!" he finally
exclaimed, "are you a process server,
or what?" "N-n-n-o," gasped the
wretched clerk, "I'm-haw-ah I'm-I'm-an-an
elo elocutionist." New York

Some Pointers on Trousers.
A man's trousers, when a tailor
presses them ln tho summer, aro
nearly always pressed with tho ends
turned tip, but In the winter they aro
pressed turned down. A tailor says:
Trousers are pressed turned up In
the summer because It Is presumed
that every man wears them turned up
In this season. He weurs them so be
cause ln the summer he weurs low
shoes, nnd trousers that are not
turned up catch at tho bark in such
shoes. Hut turned up, they don't
touch the shoes; they don't catch In
them; they set right. That Is the
main reason why wu turn up trousers
ln tho summer."
