THE STOCK; LAW. . " ' - Wp giveLin this issue" the Stock law" as applicable i to Buncombe coafity. We "hope our people wUl eaxi: ii carefully, -Andi-fcive.it; that coasiifflMition which any important strictly, f business matter wbuld. receive at their . hands . The fence auestion'is strictly a matter of dol lars and cents, to every citizen, and should be considered just as a bill of 'expenses for the building a house; or any other matter . which involves; : an ;, outlay of money - and labor. "'r ' "" ' : " ' -" The law is' absolute, 'so. far: as Reems Creek, Flat Creek, Leicester, Lower . Hominy, Limestone '. and Asheyille tbwnships are concerned. If -a majority, of the voters in any one or all of the townships of: Ivy, Sandy Mush, Upper Hominy, Av ery's Creek, Fair View, Swannanoa I and Black Mountain desire the law shall not apply to them, they can, by petition to the boards of Jus tices and County Commissioners, at the meeting on the .first Monday In June next, at which time the law ll Jl - 1 ll A - . ' J autnorizes toe uoarus io consiuer the matter, be relieved of the law. If a -majority-of the voters - of any one of the t townships mentioned should fail to petition the boards at the time mentioned, to be relieved of the law, saidtownship or town ships will be included itr the law. , -The expense of erecting the fence will fall on the townships, as a gen eral tax, included within - the law. Should a township refuse to come in now, while it would be relieved of the" tax for the building of ihe lence now. should tue'. "people ot such townshin afterward desire to come in, all the expense of remov ing and building the fence around their township would ; fall up on that ; particular : io wnship. It- is, -therefore, much '- cheap er, for the townships all to work to - gether at once, under one tax spe cially SO" for the cotfntrytownships. " We believe It is better , for the whole county to unite in" the matter and reap all together the- benefits of the 1 law. , ' Before two . years m ornnml thnen 'tAwnsriins which may refuse, to co in at, first", will be petitioning for the privilege. As s'oon as the workings of "the sys tem can be" seen and realized, all the people, whether land owners or not, will become ; strong friends of the measure.

AMERICA. : A Ni" MM bod off Coacnlatrar"tf Jul Tfia-lCti&ber' IadcutrT la Braaif The ' reaniemlo(u Xemnd ' Consfantl- ' .bm tbe Zncrste. ; - ' ' . (OUcaiiw TtpoaaJ - During the past Weaty-five-y'ears th demand foe India fltber ' has ' teen con stantly increasing. 'T h amount required for ear springs has toeenfiormou9. l ub ber shoes are how wom- by people of all classes. Most inen exposed to the snow and rain wear rubber - boots. : A kind of rubber shoe has been made expressly for protecting the boots made of belted wool, that are now so popular with lumbermen and others who work in the cold. Kuo- ber is now an ingredient in various kinds of , painU . Jfivery, woman, .has a .water proof cloak, and many men have water proof coats. A complete suit of water proof irarments - from cad - to shoes. ' can :- be obtained from any dealer v in " rubber . clothinc. The number and. variety of articles now kept in rubber stores surprises a- person who visits one for the first time. They em brace almost - everything that ' Is . manu- - factored for ornament or use, ; The num- Der or rubber toys is almost endless. Nearly every article that was once manu factured from bone, horn, wood - or. metal is now made from rubber. From infancy to old age, during sickness and health, we are constantly using rubber in some form, Goodyear endowed it with new properties, and made it subserve purposes for which it could not be used in its natural state. while Mackintosh rendered it soluble, so mat it couia be incorporated in the hber of cloth end other substances. The many uses to , which rubber has been applied during the past forty years has caused its price, to advance in all parts oi we wonu wnere it is ODiainea Tbe natives of Brazil, from which most of the best rubber is obtained, once wasted most of the product of the- rubber forests. Of late years tby have relied "im the monev they obtained from it for 'their support Our consul at Para states that 88 per cent of the exports "from the Valley of the Amazon cuapisu oi ruooer. ' vine lnnaul tants neglect all' other (industries for col-f lectin? rubber. With the finest pas to res in ; the " World, .. they ' eat . -jerked beef: trom . the " Argentine -"iicpub-lic ' arid - canned meats - from the United --States. With" vaslBucpiicsof excellent fishi which ere easily - taught, tney eat immense quantities k oi -salt cod smoked herrings obtained -from northern coantries. With dense forests of the most valuable sorts of wood they import their furniture and most of their building ma terials. - Mot many months ago the price of crude rubber was Si cents per pound at rara. and tbe average inhabitant could supply his wants by working, one day a weea in tne ruooer ioresis. recently the Eriee has declined, and the price now paid -y 'the merchants of Para is only 82 cents per bound.-' In consequence of this de cline many are seeking new means of ob taining a living, j , '- A few years ao. there was considerable alarm over the report that the sources of the Bupply of rubber were failing. The governments of several European coun tries instructed tneir agents abroad to as certain what measures could be resorted to for the purpose of keeping the market supplied with rubber, which had become of so much value in the arts. It' now seems likely that rubber is to become more plenty, and that the price will be lower than it has been at any time since the article came into general usa A new method oi coagulating the Juice without the employment of smoke is reported from . Brazil. , It is the invention of Anionia Eentes, of that country. -A new source of supply has also been discovered in a tree from which rubber has not been obtained. A knowledge of it was obtained by our consul at Rio Janeiro from 8. S. Schindler, who resides at Campinas, in the province of San Paulo. , This communication, which has been -transmitted, to Washing ton, is as followBr ."- 1 "i'.-l "The mangaba or mangabeira, as it is called in Brazil, is a tree of medium size belonging to the apocynaca. It presents a graceful appearance, something like the weeping willow, with drooping branches and small oblong-shaped leaves of a glossy dark green, finely marked, and hav ing a sharp rounded point at the apex This tree yields an excellent rubber, but up to a few months ago, before my com ing to this province, it was only esteemed on account of its fruit, which possesses a fine aroma, a delicious taste, and makes a preserve which is a great favorite with the Brazilians.- This fruit is about the size of a large plum, of a yellowish color, marked with reddish spots or -streaks.'; It is only fit to be eaten when It falls from the tree, as it is then perfectly ripe. The mangabeira has therefore the double ad vantage of bearing fruit which can be ex. ported, and of yielding a valuable rubber. The lnnabitanlS of this province of Ban Paulo are just beginning to -realize the -the vast stores ofundeveloped wealth ex isting in their -vast plates? and a fine quality of rubber will be exported which will soon rival that of Para In quality, if not in quantity. - . .,' ' :- ' . "The process , of extracting miik from the mangabeira treo is very simple, and possesses great advantage over the serin gueiras of Para, as it is met with in large quantities . in . the most health v localities. It flourishes only in sandy soil, and- is tnereiore only . encountered in unproduc tive land unfit for the ordinary purposes, of agriculture.; When the milk is about to be collected,' each person must be sup plied with about twenty Jarge round tins as well as . a large knife (facao). lie should make oblique incisions in the tree,: sloping downwards at a little distance from each other, all around the trunk, cutting onlv the outer bark, and niacin? immediately on the ground below the cuts a basin or large tin which will collect the ' milk as it exudes. When full these tins can be emptied into a larger vessel.- The same process is continued during the whole day, each person treating irom ten to fifteen trees or more in this manner, and thus from five to eight kilos of milk can be collected. The incisions should not be deep, and a great number should not be- made, son - the wme tree; a they may weaken or -am l as uasso frequently occurred with the eringueira, the rubber of.Para";, , '.: ; j.
