bag is drawn with leather cords and
tassels. Another, of very light yellow
natural colored leather, in this favorite
shape is here portrayed, prettily
adorned toward the base, with three
leather tassels, each formed of .four
thongs of leather, drawn through the
surface of the bag, and, threaded with
large glass beads at triple intervals.
The bag at the mouth is fastened with
leather bands having tasseled ends,
which bring it into a small compass.

poses. It is executed on soft
suede leather, and in the examples in
the illustrations the application of Ma
ori designs, which, have the merit of
originality, quaintness and a certain
weird element, are effective.

and ornamental, but we have seldom
had anything more ornate for the pur
pose than a rose colored leather one In
four sections, laced together in the
usual fashion with leather. One of the
four compartments has a tattooing de
sign of peculiar charm; it represents a
series of graceful curves, well cover
ing and suggestive of the Renaissance
period, surmounted by an elliptic pawa
shell, peculiar to New Zealand. This
is let into the middle of the scroll,
somewhat high up, and is of delicate
pink iridescent hue; a lighter pink
shade of leather surrounds it, well

a species of eye in each of the divisions,
which- recall the fleur-de-lis. Fro mbe
neath this comes a pendant leather
fringe, that reaches to the base of the
waste paper basket. The lacing of
the four sides ends in leather tassels
and both the shape and color are pleas
ing to the eye. Moreover, this shape
has the advantage when traveling that
it will pack quite flat.
But, after all, we are inclined to
think the writing pad boasts of the
most captivating ornamentation. It is
of green soft leather, opening down
the center, lined inside with moire of
peacock blue, with apertures for pa
pers, envelopes and stamps, an ample
blotting pad in the center. It is also
surrounded with leather, but the great
beauty of the work is shown in the ex
terior, with the interlacing scroll tat
too design, having bulb shaped irides
cent mother-of-pearl intensifying the
effects of its scintillating surface. It
is a weird pattern, but uncommonly
This is most certainly leather work
in excelsis. It is singularly attractive,
being unusual as well as beautiful; but
the most distinctive examples of this
ornate industry are the cushions.
They are also made of strong but
soft pliable leather, untanned. They
have a band of the same let through
incisions at intervals, and the interlac
ing leather makes the edges strong
and workmanlike. The one we have
chosen to illustrate portrays the Ma
ori god Tiki. This unique design is
somewhat fearsome with its green
mother-of-pearl eyes set in the green
body, the coloring of the deity ac
cording with the whole scheme of tone.
It is weird, wi-fh its gigantic mouth',
and. the eraordinary lines which pro
duce the figure are much grooved and
indented so depnlv thev trivp. the. im

lead pencll,but in fact are produced in i
poker Svork with a hot needle. J
There is in all these specimens a
great deal or beautiful tooling and
much delicate workmanship, which
specially appeal to our artistic instincts
with the added merit of being alto
gether uncommon to anything usually
seen, for Maori patterns have not been
hitherto applied to the decorative arts
on this side of the world.
This particular cushion, like the oth
ers, as sewn over with leather thongs,
and a leather ribbon is slipped through
the aperture round the cushion, after
the method of ornamenting muslin
cushions with colored silk ribbons now
in vogue; a bow of the leather is in
troduced on one side.
"When the work is done care must be
taken that the skins do not touch, as
the color might rub. The several arti
cles need to be kept In a dry place for
fear of the mildew, not that the leather
is perishable, but, like most good things
it needs care. Keeping in paper Is the
best treatment when not in use. Wal
thands and book covers make accept
able wedding presents, so do movable
book covers, blotting books and sta
tionery cases, covers for Bradshaw,
note books, etc., and the Californian
leather work opens a long train of
suggestions. Of course, it gains by the
introduction of the beautiful pawa j
shell and the surrounding painting. The j
Xew Zealand green stone for blotting
books and the like would have a fine I
effect oin the brown leather; as, how- j
ever, this can take any shade almost, '
many suggestions occur to the mind !
by which a variety of adornments
might be introduced on the leather.

more satisfactory than entrusting them

A Crop of Southern California Which
Yields 9100 Per Acre.
A novel industry, yet one which Is
sniri hv its owner to bf verv remunera
tive on small capital, has been quietly J
carried on in soutnern (jaiirornia tor
some time by an elderly German
rancher, who brought the secret, if se
cret it can be called, from southern
Europe, when he migrated westward
several years ago, says the Technical
Castprbeans are the sole crop grown j
by tms German, ana ror tneir growing
he uses nothing but bare, semi-arid
valleys and sloping hillsides, on which
owing to lack of water, nothing else
will grow to good advantage. He sup
plies, of course, only a small part of
the castor beans in use in the world,
but his is believed to be the only ranch,
of its kind in California, if not in the
United States, much, of the oil being
prepared from the seeds of the wild
shrubs which grow in great profusion
m some parts of America and Mexico.
When the beans were sacked and
weighed, ail the small ones having
been culled out in the winnowing pro
cess, Brass discovered that he had be
tween four and five tons of as fine
beans as could be produced in the
world? For these he received 5 cents
per pound, almost 5100 per acre for his
The work done on the beans had
been all his own, with the aid of one
horse and had Deen performed at spare
times from caring for a large barley
field which he owned. The beans were
so much, more proftable than the barley
that the thrifty German the next sea
son set out 15 acres to the oil pro
ducing shrubs. From these he has con
sistently during the eight or nine years
since that first experiment, received an
income averaging $100 an acre. At
times of great yield, apparently -when
the castor bean producers of other
parts of the world were unloading big
stocks on the market, prices have gone
down, but Mr. Brass has never received
less than 3 cents per pound for his
beans, and during one or two years the
price went as high as 6 cents. The de
mand for the beans is always good, and
Brass believes that a field of 100 acres
would be more profitable than 101
acres of alfalfa, one of the best paying
crops in southern California.
