roads pass for thirty or forty miles)

While l stayed at Port Barrios ahouti
IS.000.OOS bananas were loaded, and an

Oad the vegetation is the most luxu- j
tiar.t to he found m the tropics. After |
a few miles of sm h scenery you enter i
the great banana estates, and the cars
fan the leaves of banana plants from !
thirty to forty feet high, many of j
them 1-oided with iruit. There is p?r
bopo forty miles of such riding, and ;
then \ ..u come to the mountains, where |
tb< vegetatioa is dryer, and with many i
herds of cattle are- f. .sling upon it. '.
