TAPPING TREES FOR "MILK" AS
YOU WOULD FOR MAPLE SAP.
Gatherins; the Jolce or the India Rubber
Trees In So nth America Is Different
from Making Maple Sugar In the Rural
Regions of the North.
Rubber Is not obtained from cultivated
orchards, but is taken from the trees which
grow wild in low lyinR areas or basins.
Such areas are a striking feature of the
valley of the Amazon. They are not
marshes, but are the perfect analogues of
the basins existing in the flood plain of the
Mississippi. The rubber trees are found in
the greatest abundance along the tribu
taries and the smaller streams which feed
these. At the beginning of the rainy sea
son the long siesta at the fazenda comes to
an end. If rubber trees exist in sufficient
abundance near at hand, the Indians and
others who live in a state of dependency at
the fazenda are sent each day into the woods,
where they collect the milk and bring it in
to be cured, but it often happens that jour
neys of several days or a week must be
made to procure a plentiful supply. In
this case great canoes, sometimes forty feet
In length, are fitted out with provisions,
and arrangements are made for a protracted
No elaborate preparations are made for
camping. A blanket and hammock for
each of the whites and a rude covering con
sisting of sheets of the fibrous inner bark
of a tree for the Indians, several bags of
ranna ana rice, salt fish and a plentiful
6 tore of cachaca, or rum of sugar cane,
with arms and ammunition, are considered
a sufficient equipment. When a site for a
camp has been selected the Indians can in
a half day construct a palm thatched hut
for their abode which will prove water
tight for a week. The rubber trees being
gregarious in habit, one man can tap from
forty to fifty in a day.
The whole party sallies forth in the morn
ing, each provided with a quantity of little
tin cups and a narrow bladed hatchet. An
incibion, merely peuotrating the outer bark,
being made with the latter instrument, one
of the cups is attached beneath wilh a bit
of moistened clay, into which the thick
white milk at once begins to flow. The
rubber gatherer passes from tree to tree
until he has consumed half the day, after
which he collects the milk from all the
trees he has tapped. This is taken to the
camp, where it is "smoked." Were the
milk allowed to stand for a period of twen
ty-four hours or longer it would thicken
into a coarse, granular, somewhat stringy
mass, which produces a very inferior grade
of manufactured rubber.
The coarse material, known in Brazil as
scrnamby, is often found hanging in great
ouncnes upon tne trees, where it has oozed
through a crack in the bark, or from the
end of a fractured limb. If, however, the
milk be poured .over a wooden blade or
round stick and held for a few moments in
the dense fumes from a Are of certain palm
nuts, it is coagulated into the finely elastic
rubber with which all are familiar. A sec
ond coating of milk is poured over the
Diane and similarly treated until the suc
cessive layers have made a ball of consider
able size. In some sections the habit is to
make the balls, or pells, from eighteen
inches to two feet in diameter, a practice
which results in imperfections In the
"smoking" and retards the subsequent dry
ing of the rubber.
Defects may readily occur in this curing
process by making the successive additions
of milk too thick or as a result of inequali
ties in the exposure of varions parts of the
ball to the smoke, buch deterioration is
easily discoverable by cutting the ball in
ball, wben it will reveal itself by a vesicu
lar or granular condition of the rubber, the
occurrence of which reduces the whole
lump to the middle grade (entra fina), be
tween the "tine Para'' and the "coarse," or
1 be nuts which, according to native ex
perience, yield uniformly the best results
are those from the well known palm Intija.
This does not usually grow in great abun
dance in the neighborhood of the Ilcvcas.
po that the nuts of the palm L'rucury are
frequently substituted, and f;iili:ig an
adequate supply cf these, resort is had to
the nuts of the palm known as I'auassu
(pronounced wah-wahs-soo). The rublier
after being "smoked" is still white, only
becoming black by prolonged exposure to
the air. It has, however, acquired, its
characteristic elasticity and an odor ex
actly bimilor to that of smoked hams.
The smoke from other nuts, or from a
simple w odd fire, will not produce the de
sired result. So far as I have been alilo to
ascertain, uo thorough chemical investiga
tion has iieeii mmle to identify the vol;,: iie
ingredient which accomplishes this remark
aide physical change in the rubber, which.
previous to curing, is present in the sap as
an emulsion. A study of this phenomenon
might lead to important modifications of
the present treatment, for if means could
be found to cure the rubtier of the Iievoas
by the addition of some liquid or powder
to the milk, it would not only prevent en
tirely the formation of a middle grade, but
would enable the rubber to lie 'prepared in
a better form for shipment, afl"t.irding aa
enormous saving to all concerned.
At the end of the harvest, if surn a term
be allowable, tiie canoes laden with gum
return to the fazenda, and then follow
merrymakings prone to end in a wild de
bauch. The careful creditor now looks out
for the reward of his indulgence, commonly
making his round of visits in a steam
launch capable of carrying from ten to fifty
tons of rubber. After his collections are
finished he forwards the product toManaos
or Para, where it is boxed for final ship
ment to the United States and Europe.
