there, and more hammocks aro exported
from there than from any other place in
"How are they made?" asked the re
porter. "They are made entirely by hand and
with primitive implements," continued
the dealer. "Witli a con) le of straight
poles, a homo made shuttle, n thin shb
of native zapoli wood, and a pile of hciii
quen icav es tlie Indi-n of Yucatan is pre
pared to accept contracts for hammocks
by tho piece, dozen or hundred. Tho
poles are placed n certain distance apart,
according to tho length of the hammock

rapidly fashioned witli tlie aid of a small
machcttc into a tonhas or striijer. 15y
the aid of this tonkas the flU r of tho
thick, fleshy heniqum leaf, which is a
species of cactus, is denuded of its cover
ing, and a wisp of batchkill or rasped
fiber is the result.
"Tlie liatchkill is bleached in tho sun
and then becomes soskil. These are then
separated into small heaps, containing
about the same number of libers. When
the entire supply on hand is thus laid out
the operator takes up the fibers, and with
i dexterous roil between tho palm of tho
liand and tho knee transforms them into
heavy cords or kuns, as the natives call
"Out of this cord tho hammocks are
made. Tlie cord is wound around tho
two jwles which liavo been planted in tho
ground and the work is turned over to

tles, accomplish the balance of tho task

ner. A hen a pile has accumulated the
contractor comes around and gathers
"Tlie relations between the operator
and contractor nre very icculLir," said
the dea"ler, "and would exist nowhere
eke in theworlJ. In order to get the
hammocks necessary for his trade the
contractor must often jy for them three
months in advance, as it is only when the
natives owe money tliat they will consent
to work. In ordertogct a chain c toovve
this money the native will promise to
furnish the contractor, whom ho knows,
with a number of liammocks at a certain
time if the contractor will advance him a
sum of money. On this monev the en-
tenirisinir nativ e can lire in idlen.- fnr

to this. If he doesn't he can gtt no ham
mocks. But once tho nativu has bound
himself to supply the goods thoy will bo

Sliould death intervene, his relatives per
form the contract.
"But this advance system is a sore drain
on the contractor, who is rarely a jierson
of Lirge capital. He must of ncces-sity
accommodate the natives, and he needs
outside help to do so. This help ho ob
