Native hut", made of bamboo and thatched taith etraw, are scattered bere and there alonjr the road, pmnt inif a very irtnreqae ecene. The manner of preparing fields for cof fee planting is to plow well the ground and then pulverize it by harrowing-, and then plant yearling coffee tree nix feet apart in each direction, and in th cen tre of every square thus formed plant a banana so. ker root. The bananas grow rapidly and aoon afford all the shade neceiwary for the cofTn!, without exclod inp air and lipht, which is necessary for a full crop of lorries. Kanana leaves are spread over the ground, which prevent weeds from growing, and choking the coffee plant, A young coffee orchard is a thing of beaufy. The rich green foli age, somewhat like orange or laurel leaves, glirtens in the sunlight. The graceful banana, with its bunches of lus cious fruit gracefully drooping, is like a frame for the picture. Some trees bear the secrid year, but the third year is the beginning of a renl crop. Twenty years is about the average life of the In Coffee-picking begins about the lart of Ieceni!er and last ouUl at.0111 me j nu of March, though the main crop is gath ered the lat of January and early part ,.r i .i.,urv Tliev blossom in March nd April. The Wrries grow all along the branches of the trees, and are picked by native women and children, who are i-aidthn-e reals Scents, for each bas ket of l-err.es. and as some can pick four baskets jwr diem, they can earn 12 real, .r H ,V p'r day. The 1-erries are cpread upon large paved plazas in front and rear or the hacienda, where they are subjected to the action of the sun for fiom eight to twelve days, hen the ontflide meat dries and turns black, and the lorries look like tarred pebbles isilch as we ue for roofing purposes.) It is then run through a threshing and mill ing machine, ahich breaks the bulls and cleans the coffee ixan of all pigment and other impurities. An ingenious machine nerates the caracollilo or peaberry from the planchnela,or Hut uean. ll is men ready br market A coffee-plant pro duce, on the average, four ounces af cof fee, some producing more, and none less. The bannnacro; is sold in Fortin, the name or the railway station, at four pin fea ff four bands, all over that being thrown in gratia. Thirty pinkas consti tutes one balfora cargo, and sixty pin kas one cargo, or fifteen bunches, and for this the sum of fl M is realized, or ten cents, Mexican money, for a bunch of vellow bananas anvwhere from four to even bands in size. This is very rea- sonable.liut as the cost is only in the ctittinc. it pavs well, after all. Oranges are excellent, and at Cordoba sell for f 1 per grow to shippers, l'ineapples are luscious, and yon can buy a basketful for one real twelve ctntsi. The forest tree at Owdoba are all covered with orchids and parasites. The cactns faaiily ia well renrenented. The tnaneo, noted for ita truit. is a beautirul tree.

It lakes eight years for this plant to ma ture. Then it shoots up a flower stalk as thick as a niao'f-2thii;h. This is cut out, and into the hollow centre thiM formed the asp flows at the rate of a gal lon every twenty-four hours. It is called tunel i honey de 'agava. Natives gather it in pig skins, w hich are carried on bar rows to the stations, emptied into vats, fermented, and then shipped to Mexico "itr on regular pulque trains. When freshly made it is not bad to take. It is bealthy and nutritious, and while it makes one rather drowsy, it will not in toxicate.

There is a certain bracing effect in cold air which is lost when the weather grows warmer; and when Nature is renewing her youth, her admirers feel dull, slug gish and tired. This condition is owing mainly to the impur) condition of the blood, and its failure to supply healthy tissue to the various organs of the body. It is remarkable hew susceptible the sys tem is to the help to be derived from a good medicine at this season. Posses sing just those purifying, building-up qualities which body craves. Hood's Sarsaprilla soon overcomes that tired feeling, restores the appetite, purifies the blood, and, in short, imparts vigorous health. Its thousands of friends as with one voice declare It Makes the eak Strong." Henry Ward Beecher speaks of the crow as foiloms : Aside from this special question of profit and loss, we have a warm side to ward the crow ; he is so much like one of ourselves. He is lar.y, and that is hu man : he is cunning, and that is human. He thinks his own color the best, and loves to hear his own voice, which are eminent traits of humanity. He will nev er work when he can get another to work for him a genuine human trait. He eats w hatever be can get his claws on, and is less mischievous with a belly full than w hen hungry, and that ia like man. Take off their wings and pot them in breeches and crows would make fair average men. Give men w ir.gs and red-ice their smart ness a little, and many of them would be almost good enough to be crows.

My child, honestly and earnestly, yoa oubt to he ashamed of yourself. If you were a Chinese girl, doomed to be the slave of your husband's parents ; if you were a Hindoo maiden already married to a man whom you had never seen until your wedding day, there would be some reason in your sorrowful wail. But for yon, with avenues of much use fulness and honor opening before you on every side, to utter such a wiil-yes, you certainly nght to be ashamed of your self ! It is a glorious thing to be a girl, and to hold the hope of being a woman a little later on. P. is true, as the orators like to say, that " the age needs men." But the age also needs women. Don't be afraid that your talents must be wasted, merely be cause you can't sing bass, or drive a nail properly. There are scores of things just a-t good and useful that you can do if you will. Iion't be afraid to use and develop all the brain power that you possess. Strong mindedness is not nearly so objectionable as weakmindedness. To be sure, the world wants you to be manly ; but weakness ia no more essential to woman liness than carelessness is to manliness. If those " forces within," of whose presence you are conscious, will not be called into play " in the ordinary course of a woman's life," why, then, you will have to make the course of your life ex traordinarily good, extraordinarily true and hopeful. Brain power, in either sex, needs the accompaniment of heat power." Famly Duty, Tbe home circle is sacred and life bas few charms indeed if family ties are burst asun der.

Consider well, then decide positively Dare to do right, fear to do wrong. Endure trials patiently. Fight life's battle bravely, manfully. Go not into the society of tbe vicious. Hold integrity sacred. Injure not another's reputation nor business. Join bands only with the virtuous. Keep your mind from evil thoughts. Lie not for any consideration. Make few acquaintances. Never try to appear what you are not Observe good manners. Tay your debts promptly. Question not the veracity of a friend. Respect the counsel of your parents. Sacrifice money rather than principle. Touch not, taste not, handle not, in oxicating drinks. Use your leisure time for improvement Venture not upon the thresnhold of wrong. Extend to every one a kindly saluta tion. Yield not to discouragement. Zealously labor fur the right And success is certain. Merit Wins.
