At Tacna, Yuma county, Arizona, there
are a number of these plants that haye
been growing and bearing for the past
three or four years, two crops annually;
the last crop being the heaviest. These
plants have received no attention except
an occasional watering. The seeds were
sown four years ago and the plants have
been bearing from the first year; the
plant maturing in one year from the seed,
Every winter the stalks die and are fol
lowed the next spring by a new set of
sprouts from the old roots, which in turn
bloom and bear their crops of beans, and
so on continually.
The castor bean, or " Palma Christl,"
possesses some remarkable characteris
tics. No animal will dare eat it except
the goat, which generally ropents It by
the next day, or sooner. Insects will not
trust thenselves long among its branches,
and even the tobacco worm will wriggle
and squirm when placed upon a leaf of
this plant. It makes a useful hedge when
sown thickly in two or three rows around
a farm. It will not only keep out stock
by its branches, but the mole, gopher, or
chipmonk that eats its roots forfeits Its
right to live, for death Is sure to be Its
penalty. Mosqultos, gnats and flies would
rather roost on any other limb; the oil
like sap which oozes from the leaves
paralyzes them, so to speak. A young
caster bean plant In a flower pot placed
In a room where flies are troublesome
will drive them away. Bruised leaves
rubbed upon horses or other animals an
noyed by gnats or files will prevent the
attacks of thase pests. A decoction com
posed of the leaves and berries of the
castor bean plant and alcohol, properly
applied, will keep away mosqultos and
other insects which rob man of " nature's
street restorer, balmy sleep."
In raising the castor bean for profit it
will be found to be a good Keeper, so that
there will be no need of rushing off to
market to dispose of it for any price for
fear it will spoil, as it can be kept per
fectly secure while awaiting a satisfactory
market. The yield of well cultivated
plants is about 6,000 pounds per acre;
and 100 pounds of seed will produce about
SO pounds of oil. A gallon of oil will
weigh about 10 pounds. Thus It will be
seen that one acre producing 6,000 pounds
of beans will yield 180 gallons of oil,
which sells in San Francisco for 81.25 per
gallon, which makes a total gross yield of
(225 per acre. One man oan cultivate
and attend to twenty acres.
Arizona has the soli to produce the
plant, warmth and water to mature it,
and an abundance of sunshine to harvest
It in. Let it be borne in mind that the
plant bears the first year from the seed,
and is In full bearing the second year, and
thenceforward bears two crops a year,
Uncle Jerry Shine, who runs a small
