But from the moment the mill begins

. This output of sixteen and one-half
ton is only ten percent of the amount
of paper that could be made if all the

which has eii output of 275 tone day.
Obviously, if th manufacture of paper
from bagasse, were to be extended to
the other plantation of the Islands, an
industry of , great magnitude 'would
have been inaugurated, v
Mr. Eckart ventures no cuease as to
this possibility, and he preferred to let
