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

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

" We believe It is better , for the whole

reap all together the- benefits of
the 1 law. , ' Before two . years

which may refuse, to co in at, first",
will be petitioning for the privilege.
As s'oon as the workings of "the sys

people, whether land owners or not,
will become ; strong friends of the
measure. This has been the case
elsewhere, and in no instance have

stantly increasing. 'T h amount required

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. ' .- - ' ' -
