It is said that even the facts published by such well known Amazon travelers as Schutz and Holzhausen have been confusine: and it would certainly not be possible to derivo correct iih'as from their reports when both of them confounded Para, rubber with ordinary caoutchouc and treated the rubber product of Brazil as though it all came from one species of plant. As the yearly harvest of thes iwo preat varieties of rubber haw reached the astonishing quantity of 57.nit,itOO kilograms, of which iu'.Oun.Oei, come from Africa and S1.flii0.no0 from Bouth America, these products are one of the most important articles in inter national trade. tr will doubtless in. as to read as i"l- j terest read' rs therefore to know what iAutrust Kail!, r has just w ritten lot "arrant shall lis 'I'etermai. -s Mitu iluntren as to tht. surer for redemp- I methods o. rubber colleetine- in Hray.it lie speaks of the two chief kinds of rubber produced in Brazil and then Rives his attention first to that kind which is of the best quality and largest quantity nn.l conies into the trade tin der the name of Bara rubber or F'ara hna. In Brazil it is known as borrai h or seringa: a man who spends his time colleetine: this rubber is known as , f rinerueiro. The Para rubber tree iSiphonia elastics) is found almost everywhere in the Amazon lowlands in greater or less quantities. The Siphon! has a straight silver-colored trunk and attains a height of from 60 to SO feet. Its crown of foliage is not Jarge in com parison with the size of As trunk. It has a brilliant dark frreen leaf and the tree is a really beautiful specimen of veeeta tion. When the srrinRneiro has found a Kitfiicient number of Siphonias to betjin work be has no sieat preparation to make before rubber colleetine; beuin Th" only preliminary labor consists in dealing- a narrow path leading from tree tq tret'.

By 1 o'clock in the afternoon he re turns to his hut and the sap collection of the day is over. Tne next day but one the same set of trees will yield an other suppiy of sap. The afternoons are devoted to the sfcond part of the operation, which is the smoking process. The smoke is ob tained from the fruit of a certain palm as dry and hard as a stone, which in Brazil goes by the name of shevon. The collector kindles a fire of dry wood and over it places a larp-e inverted tin fun nel. Thrciieh the small opening of the fanned tie drops the fruit upon the fire un til he has filled the funnel, fie stimulates the fire with a pair of bellows and in a fi w mom nts a thick rlcud of smoke is f merging- from the small end of the funnel. The fruit chars, but does net burn, though it emits great quantities of smoke. A few- nn nut perlVc ing process begins. The seringueiro has plac-d the rubier aaji in a gri at bo-pi beside him. lie holds in lis hand a very stout, round stick, over which he fiours from a little cuft a quantity- of the sun. He waits a moment to permit the drops to fall hack into the bowl, and then holds the stick, which re tains moHt of the sap fioured over it, in l the white smoke as it pours out of the j tunnel, rotating" the stick between his i ha nds. It takes eareeiy fift'-on seconds for the sap to become coagulated and yellow in c.-lnr. This is the f-rst layer of rubber on the stick, and the process is repeated again and again, layer succeeding- laver. until the stick holds all the cured rubber that can conveniently he handled. Then the man puts the big rubbfr ball Into a clamp and pulls out the stick, not without much mus cular exercise. As a rule, one of these balls of Para rubber weighs about fifty LX til; jr Men's Men's Men's J j f; Stretchy Cambric Shirts Seam Night with two l Drawers Shirts Collars 1 1; 35c 45c 35c I ; if fl 1 i m ur Establishment Is Brim Full of Some of these we will mention bejow Hundreds of others may be seen when you visit our store.

A search for lost treasure in Lake Hu ron has bet'n organized. Moreover, a wrecking company, well informed as to the vessels that have gone down in the last fifty years, is preparing for a sys tematie'search alter the lost cargoes in the gieat lakes. There are-no cargoes of gold and silver to be looked for. as in the waters where sank the galleons of Hpain. but there are cargoes of copper which are almost as valuable. The copper mines in the lake regions have been worked for nearly sixty years. WitKin that period many vessels have been lost.

The success in that one case has j led to a systematic search for other cargoes. Lake Huron has a depth of r,H0 to l.oon feet. It is assumed tnat more vessels have been lost on Lake Huron than on Lake Michigan, some of these in compat ati vely shallow water, or within six or seven miles of the Michi gan shore. In the last twenty years 1.0S9 vessels have been wrecked on the frreat lakes, with cargoes valued at over $7,000,000. A good part of this was per ishable merchandise, but many of the cargoes were of a kind not to be in lured by water. Chicago Inter-Ocean. Fourth, of July Excursion to Ottawa Santa Fe.

Gossip from India grows more fever ish about Lord Kitchener. The man of iron from the South African veldt has entered with surprising zest into the amusement of Anslo-Indian society. He has attached a ballroom to his head quarters. He has melted down numer ous trophies, caskets, cups, and what not, to make a gold and silver dinner service, which is vastly admired- There is even a rumor, which we distrust, that he has joined an amateur dramatic club. As for matrimony, the commander-in-chief is already engaged by report to many ladies, and we are forced to re mind the public that, under British law, polvgamy is forbidden even in India.
