Whee the tree of thai wood ls planted, thirty years must elapse before it becomes fil for the first stripping of the bark, and even then the cork ls of no use, bellin much too coarse. After eight year? more n second crop arrives, but tun! .again ls of but poor quality, and Sight years more making forty-sli years In all, must pass before the grower can reap any material benefit from thc tree Then, again, the great? est care is necessary for the manufac? ture of the best champagne corks be? cause should they be defective In size and shape ihe quality of the wine will suffer. For that reason they are not made by machinery, like the ordinary cork, but are cut by hand, es finer work can be dona that way.?Philadel? phia Ledger. Mazarin and Hia Pictures.
