1 lie stuck of [line yet standing in
Michgiau can produce 40,000,000,000
feet of lumber, if cut for that purpose.
In eielit years, therefore, to the kite
average production of tho state, the
pine will have been used up. But such
predictions have been made for years
past. In 1807, the standing pine of
Michigan was estimated to be 02.41(1,
000,000 feet and it was predicted that
it would ho all gone in seventeen years,
but since then the Saginaw alley
alune has produced about 12,000,000,
000 fnet, and will continue to cut in
the neighborhood of 1,000,000,000 feet
a year fur the eight or ten years to
come. As pine grows scarcer, it will
make more lumber than when it was
plenty. But in predicting the end of
pine lumbering, a person must take
into acc unit the timber which is yet
standing in Wisconsin, Minnesota,
Canada and the South. And it will he
many years before it even grows scarce,
when we estimate the whole. Yet an
end must come to the forests that the
white race found in this country.
Doubtless bine forests of tho second
growth will he raised for future use,
but tho present magnificent forests will
disappear. It has been estimated that
the demand for lumber in this country
from 1KS0 to 1880 would require 210,
0(k),000,000 feet, and one can readily
see that at that rate the stock must
soon ho gone. There is only about 65,
000,000,000 feet of pine in Canada,
and that would go hut a short way in

it is surprising th it the coffee-tree or
co.nineree [Uotfy i Arabic] is not made
use of a'-e it now ami then in
nurserymen's greenhouses, but seldom
anywhere else, and yet there are few
evergreen shrubs more ornamental and
very few that are better adapted for

average temperature of 70 deg, in
summer and (10 dog. in winter will be
found quite sufficient ami if the plant
is put in a warm corner in the room
over the kitchen Hie on frosty nights,
no harm will come to it. The best soil
fur planting is a mixture of peat and
loan. The drainage must bo thorough,
the supply of water abundant, and the
roots must have plenty of room. Tho
oofl'ea tree in a young state is well
worth growing for its bright green
glossy leaves, migrant, jensammo-like
white blossoms, and berries changing
from green to red. It is said that Mcgal
lelin, a learned Mufti of Aden, became
acquainted with it during one of lbs
African journeys. He took back some
hemes with him to Yemen, and re. -
ommsnded tho beverage to his friends
as an excellent method of keepii g
awake at prayers. Its use gradually
spread to tho Nile, Syria, Asia Minor
and Turkey. CViFjo was first sold in
Constantinople in 1054.
It was introduced into Enropo by
the Dutch in 1010, 1 nt did not reach
this country till 1040. Arab coffee is
chi. fly grown in Yemen, where it was
first planted in the neighborhood of
Aden and Mocha. The plantations are

cloths are spiend under the trees for

In the market places of (several west

in for Bale trays, covered with living
ants, each about as big and round as u

appreciated by the ingenious Mexican
youth as an excellent substitute for
coffee. They hold the ant by its bead
and suck out the honey, with which
jts back parts arc greatly distended,
and throw away the empty body. Wo
men buy the ant by the quart, press
out the honey through a muslin

Mexican youth ana husbands.
