CORK TREES IN SARDINIA.
Cork trees are indigenous to Sar
dinia, and extensive natural forests
are to be found upon the mountain
slopes in the northern part of the
island. The crop is cut every nine
years. The process of industrial
production is comparatively simple.
The dried-out bark in its cylin
drical form is first thoroughly
steamed and flattened out under
pressure. It remains in piles for
about thirty days and Teappears cov
ered with blue mold. The bark is
then carefully scraped on both sides
and cut into strips corresponding in
width to the varying lengths of the
cork stoppers desired. These strips
t bv hand into cubes. . The
cubes are put through high-speed
fim'Bhinfr machines, which Tound off
the edges and . give the required
