I br Crop la t.rowv and Praipti or the Trade. 1? any doubt lingers in the mind of a Cuban as to the betit-Sts trained ly his country by our Interference in i;s af fairs, the figurva concerning Cuban commerce jrst piven out by our j:av emment will probably dispel it. :a tistics show that for the seven mouths ending Jan. 31. 1901. as compared with the corresponding portion of the pre ceding year, there was an increase of 35 per cent in Cuban exports aud a de crease of C.4 per cent iu imports from the United States. The same statis tics fIiow that imiHirts from every oth er country, except in a few cases, have decreased in value, while the exports have gone up. During the seven months ended Jan. 31, llil. the value of the tobacco and manufactures of the leaf ex;Krted from Cuba reached a total of $ i.S.r.72."3J. an Increase over the same period of ll00 of $5,016,057. It la easy to see how the tobacco grower shares and will con tinue to share In the prosperity of the Pearl of the Antilles. It is but proper that he should do so, for. as a recent writer puts It, "the email tobacco farm er is going1 to be a factor of conse quence in the western and central part of the Island." The present season la sowing time on Cuban plantations. This begins In June and lasts into October. la De cember c :nes the harvest, and the pick ing of the leaf, its baling, curing, etc occupy rural Cuba until May. Although, 09 every one knows, the soil of Cuba Is nnequaled for fertilitj. Cuban tobacco growing is not easy work. It requires constant care, fot the enemies of the tender leaves are many. Too much moisture or too much dryness easily ruins tobacco, and the greatest care is needed to protect it from the vivijagua, a very large and voracious ant, which Is quite capable SCENE ON A TOBACCO PLANTATION. . of destroying a crop in a few hours. Superfluous or ill shaped leaves must be removed to conserve the strength of the plant. Ia sugar cultivation we have been able to teach the Cubans many things worth knowing, but it must be confess ed that in tobacco growing they do not need our assistance. As most of the work must be done by hand and as the science cf getting the most and best leaves was perfected long ago little re mains to be learned. We can still teach them sometLing about economy of pro duction, but even there the American tobacco grower has little if any the ad vantage of his Cubau competitor. Quite an amount of land capable of producing good tobacco remains un occupied, and even in the well culti vated districts extension is possible. There is no uniformity of opinion as to tbe future increase in tobacco growing on the island. Conservative, guessers say. after careful figuring, that with proper encouragement the present crop may be doubled within the nert ten or twelve years. While the big Havana cigar facto ries have large tracts of tobacco land which they cultivate, the greater por tion of the product is grown by the "guajiro," or small farmer. The lat ter, like tbe man is tbe poem, "wants but little here below." He wishes, first of all. protection for his product from outside competition, especially that from I'orto Hico. According to the "gnajiro." Porto Rican tobacco, is muy malo." and will corrupt the bet ter Cuban leaf. This, by the way, is denied by the pec ale of our island. Next the "guajiro" wants Just now a chance to prove that be and his fel lows can govern Cuba without any as sistance from the Yankees. The next want of the man who grows tobacco la Cuba is a govern-; ment that will build good roads for him. The farmer suffers severely from the lack of adequate means of cemmunication. Re has awakened to the crying need of better highways end eyes with approval the beginning raade by the present American admin istration. After roads ar. built, or be fore, the "guajiro" must have, to In sure his future prosperity, increased banking and warehouse facilities. Af present he relies too much upon the large estate owner and the professional money lender. Stable country banks are a crymg need of the island. Finally, the "guajiro" wants peace and a chance 10 live his life according to ais own customs and manners. It must be understood that trie Cuban farmer is not overfond of work. He Is. however, capable of ex -j erting himseif like a Trojan when be! ees an immediate end In view. He j seeds encouragement to keep it up. THE WEDDING CHEST. Oae of the Items of tbe t o to Date Ilride'a Hanfwtou. An old time int:;ut:ou that Las kite ly been revived is t-e dower chest, as our grett-grandra-ilior were wont t.. call it. or the wedd ?.z trunk, to desig nate it by its modern title. Years a,;oiie it usually took the f rm of a quaintly carved oaken chest, generous of depth and of sufficient h;:sth to hold the bridal gown without folding, and the task of filling it begin while its pro-speetive- possessor was as yet little more thau a baby, the mother and all the feminine relatives and friends each contributing to its store of naiery and lingerie. Nowadays's commodious trunk i generally used for the purpose, aud the work stocking it decs not Ix'gin until ! its oxi.T is actually betrothed, with her weeding day well within sight, for the time has gone by w hen a girl was destined to matrimouy from her cradle and when a life of siug!e blessedness was looked upon rather iu the light of a disgrace. Once the wedding client comes into existem-e. however, neither labor nor expense is spared in filling it as rapid ly as Hssible, each and all of its fait Kssessor's ZitV dearest friends adding something to its list of contents. Prop erly speakiug. this should include ouly such articles as can either be worn by the young bride or employed in the decoration of her beds or Ucr dinner table, but it is not an Infrequent oc currence for odds and ends cf silver or bric-a-brac to find their way-Into the ever ready trunk to be used In the n J -nrnent of the newly acquired borne.

FUR FASHIONS. Here, na In Other Garments. iTie Flat Tnridowa Collar Lead a. Furriers must live even in summer, and this perhaps .explains the early offering of the new season's models and the endeavor to turn people's EAHX.T MODELS IN FTB, thoughts "fur-ward"' long before the sun's too fervid rays have paled into winter's mildness. Then there are renovations to be considered, the re modeling of fine garments, which need only to be fashioned anew, and early autumn is none too soon for these affairs. One of the features of tbe fur coat, be that long or short this year, will b the flat turn back collar, frequently square cut at the back or with square corners to the revers. Such a pleasur able relief after the insistent medicis. The most convincing little coat of broadtail, ltere depicted, bears a collar arranged on these lines in ermine. The fronts to the coat are planned so that they present an equally smart appear ance worn jen or closed, while an at tractive note of completion is offered by large white mother of pearl buttons with smoked pearl horseshoe centers. The lining throughout is of rich ivory satin. Etons in caracal will again be worn, and. lacking a sympathetic feeling foi a short coat, an elegant refuge is to be found in the long three-quarter sack, a wrap very faithfully sketched here with. A Salmon's Leap. One of the directors of tbe Norwegian fisheries has been endeavoring to dis cover the height a salmon will leap when clearing a watertall which ol structs Its passage up stream. Mastr were placed below the fall to insure accurate measurements. It la stated that a fish can leap to the beigbt of twenty feet. When a Bsh failed to clear the fall at one bound. It remained in the falling water and then, with a rapid twist of tbe body, gave a spring and was successful. Aboat tbe Limit. "Eilkins. what is the most mortify ing thing you can conceive of?"
