CALIFORNIA CORK TREES.
The Forests There Are Already
Showing Good Results.
The available for?sts of cork trees are
already relatively extensive, although
hardly sufficient to supply the demands
now made on them, or which, as the
world grows in prosperity,' must be
made on them, for there is harlly any
end to the uses for cork, and none of
the substitutes for it which have yet
been tried are very satisfactory or prom
ise to take its place to any great extent.
The latest estimates of existing areas
of available cork oak forests make their
extent from 3,3 0,000 to 3,500,0)0 acres,
of which about one-half,incuding those
on its African possessions, belongs to
France. The wood of the cork oak is
heavy. coarse-grained and of a ye'low
brown color; it shrinks and warps badly
in seasoiing, and decays rapidly when
exposed to the action of the atmosphere.
It has little value in the arts. but fur
nishes a useful fuel and makes good
charcoal. The inner bark is rich in
tannin, and the trees too old or untit to
produce cork are cut for the sake of the
The cork oak is an interesting tree to
Americans,as Its cultivation now seems
destined to become an important indus
try in Caiifornia,where the climate and
the soil in many parts of the State are
admirably suited to produce it. This
is not a me-e theory as the trees have
beex growing now for several years in
California and have already produced
crops of cork of excellent quality. It
is probable that the tree will grow rath
er more rapidly in California than it
does in its native country, although the
quality of the soil, the exposure in
which the trees are placed, local cli
mate,and the treatment which the trees
receive will influence, of course, the
rapidity with which the bark is devel
oped. In Atrica it is found. that the
trees which grow the most rapidly pro
duce bark of the poorest quality, and
that within certain limits the s'ower the
tree grows the more valuable the prod
uct, provided the growth Is , not too
slow, in which case the bark loses some
of the elasticity which makes it valua
ble. Tha conditions which Induence
the developwent of the cork are so
numerous and complic tted that the
product of all the trees in a grove or
forest can never attain the same uni
formity of thickneas or quality in any
giv lime.. Th is so well understood
econn ere'i ork is grown
that the best mit a esting has
been found to be to go over the forest
every two or three years and remove
the bark from such trees as are covered
with merchantable cork,and not to strip
all the trees at the same time. All
the:e-matters must, of course, be con
sidered in connection with planting for
ests of cork oak in California. The
planting, and care of such forestsin Por
tugal and Spain has long been an im
portant industry,and there is no reason
why they may noti be made so In Cali
fornia, where the local consumption of
cork is already enormous, although the
wine industry is hardly more than in
its infancy.-G'ardfen and Forest.
WRITING FOR NEWSPAPERS.
Sensible Words Which Young
Authors Should Read.
I am very frequenl.ly asked whether
the newspaper is the best starting point
for young authors, and in this question
les, in; nine cases out of ten, a grave
misconception, writes Edward W. Bolc,
In The Lad es' Home Journal.. Many
young wvriters believe that work r'ject
ed by t.he monthly magazine will finti
a market with the daily newsvaper.
It seemns to be taken for granted that
the same degree of care is unnecessary
for newspaper work as for magazmne
writing. "The new.spaper dies with
the day, the mnaazine lives for a
month," is the general feeling, and
ence she I mipression that ephemeral
work will find a ready market with the
It has been my pleasure to write for
the newspapers rress of America for
six or seven years, and I give young
writers a leaf from my experience
when I say to them-Do not allow
yourselves to believe that minor work
will find favor with the modern Amer
ican newspaper. There is just as much
demanded of a writer in the newspaper
editorial office as In that of the monthly
magazine. A writer commits the
greae"mistake of her life, when she
looks "khe newspaper as a gradu
ating se to the magarmne. The

ion set by the er.zine holds good with
Where the newspaper offers -to the
young writer an advantage over the
magazine, is In its wider field, and its
larger capacity. Publishing thirty
times against the single Issue of a mag
azine, the newspaper naturally absorbs
more material, and a writer's chances
are correspondingly better. Then, too,
subjects which are out of the range of
the magazine, fall directly- within the
scope of the newspaper. This is spec
ially true of timely articles. The mag
azines of to-day with their large circu
lations. and the necessary slower pro
cess of priting, are prepared so far in
advance as to make it Impossible for
them to get close enough to timely
happenings to make their disoussion of
them fresh and interesting. With t he
nwapnrs this is,of couraet dhfarnt~
and it is precisely In its ability to treat
of what is latest and freshest wherein
lies its strength, and in these respects
the field is necessarily broadened to the
But, bear in mind, this advantage is
only one of greater capacity, not of
less requirement. Disappointment can
be no more certain than when a manu
script is sent to a newspaper editor with
the belier that he is less critical, or i hat
his constituency is less exacting than is
the case of the monthly magazine.
BIRTH OF AN ICEBERG.
Origin of the Great Floating Glaciers
--How They Are Formed.
The dynamical law by which the gla
ciers abutting on the sea generate their
bergs is still somewhat vague. In ear
lier days It was held that the. glacial
tongue broke off by its own weight. To
this has succeede-l the following expla
nation, perhaps more popularly than
scientifically accepted. Moving down
the fords to the ocean the glacier's front
enters the waves, at first plowing up
the sea-bottom into a deep furrow But
as the ice prow pushes over the sloping
ocean floor,the weight resting upon the
bottom steadily diminishes. The float
ing power of the water tends constantly
to lift the ice, which is held down by
the rigidity of the glacial sheet below
Its normal sea line. Moving on still,
the glacier's front reaches the point in
deeper waters where it is lifted from
the bottom altog'ther. btll it remains
unbroken, the strength of the~ sheet,
hundreds of feet In thickness, holding
it. But as it proceeds, the awful lever
age on the unsupported tongue waxes.
It is like the van of an army drawn
farther and farther away from its main
body, and encountering increasing at
tacks of the foe. Each surge of the
tide, every onset of storm, racks its
structure. At last comes the point
where the hardly susta:ned equilibrium
of forc s ends,and the glacial tip breaks
away into the floating berg. Finally
we have a third and more recent hy
pothesis based on the differential move
ment of the upper and lower parts of
the glacier. This latest theory asserts
that the glacial front is thrust ,
from .above by the swifter d of Its
upper portion-a moveme . which
may be roughly likened to/the break
ing comb of a sea wave sseeping to the
But whatever the spscific diIrecti1)
of h - a
the glacier, the grandeur of the i8
nomena which often attend it iswitbout
question. Constantly the brow or 'the
glacier over the sea is shaking off with
sharp explosions smaller masses of ice,
which drop to the water in cloudlets of
spray. Suddenly thAre comes a st of
louder and deeper blasts that blend into
a subterranean roar. A great section
of the fissured front of the glacier bends,
with water-falls pouring from its sides,
and obscured in. clouds of vapor from
the cold surfaces newly exp>sed. to the
air. As these clear away the broken-off
glacial tongue surges down,forcing upa
wave of water dangerous to near vessels,
to boats or men at the water's edge.
Up and down the new-born berg
sways, moving, meanwhile,slowly away
from the glacier and out to sea. It bas
been born amid the travail of the icy
elements to begin i life journey, that
is to be long or short, according to its
own size and the places to which the
currents of air and water are to bear
Disappearance of the Earring.
Ras any one except a woman and a
jeweler noticed the gradual, and of re
cent years, the rapid retirement of the
earring? Not many years ago two
Iwomen out of three wore them. 'Little
girls a' school begged to have their ears
pierced, and heroically-it may be call
ed heroism-submitted to the painful
puncturing of the delicate lobe of the
ear only for the gratification of vanity.
To-day, except among the Italian and
Portuguese peasant women of the Niorth
End,the pendant earring has almost
wholly d sappeared. A few still cling
to the ear ornament in the shape of a
stud, but the jewelers say that few
women nowadays submit,to the pierc
ing process. Some whose ears are al
ready punctured still wear their orna
ments, but many use little artifices to
conceal the traces of the needle.
A Jewish Opinion of the Passion
The JewisA Ckronfote (London) thus
refers to the Ober-Ammergau Passion
Play: "The grotesque elaborar'on of
the scenic effects that mark the present
production are not without their value.
Far from dep'oring them, we think
that, on the contirary, they may be wel
comed. For they have, if a well-au
thenticated report speaks truly, effect
ually killed the play once for alL There
is very little doubt that the Passion
Play has been given for the last time.
And surely it is well that this be so. It
is not Christianity alone that must suf
fer by the conversion of Its most sacred
beliefs Into a theatrical medium for
making money. Religion generally
shares In the blame, and Judaism must
rejoice at the removal of blots from the
face of religions other than itself."
Who seeks those that are greater
than himself, their greatness enjoys,

their greats ones, Is already truly
