The fascination which the strange
lands of the Far East have held for
the average American is taking on
a more tangible form, now that trav
el and business are bringing Asia
and the United States into closer
No article of commerce Is doing
more to bring this country into close
teach with the mystic East than rub
ber. The rapid rise to supremacy
ia the production of crude rubber
of the islands of the Indian Ocean,
combined with the fact that America
consumes nearly three-quarters of
all the rubber grown there, has given
many Americans an opportunity to
peep behind the scenes and become
acquainted with the lands and peo
ples of that distant quarter of the
Although the whole equatorial
belt in that section is dotted with
rubber plantations, representing a
capital Investment of nearly half a
billion dollars, the thoughts of Amer
icans naturally center on Sumatra
where one of America's greatest cor
porations has established a planta
tion sa vast in area and so highly
developed that it stands out as the
greatest single plantation In the
world. This is the plantation of the
United States Rubber Company, com
prising seventy square miles of grow
ing trees, an enterprise marked
throughout by a magnitude and an
efficiency worthy of the best Amer
By producing its own rubber the
company Is in a position to estab
llsh a uniformity In its manufactured
product, especially United States
tires, such as rubber manufacturers
have lone craved.
A robin sang and its clear notes rang
From the top of a stately pine,
And the lilt It trilled, the bleak woods
With a burst of long devlne.
A soldier kneeled on the battlefield,
Where a dying comrade fell;
And the angels heard the whispered
That softened the parting knell.
A daisy small by a garden wall
Bloomed in the heat alone,
And Its dainty face cast a lightsome
O'er the frowning; wall of stone.

Or a flower's caressing smile,
Tho. trifles small, may each and all
Render lit worth while.

notion in some quarters that
any tire is good enough for
a small car.
That's not what the man
who owns it thinks.
