that were made almost entirely

the edifice consisted wholly "f whale

In The Scientific American. Is an Invit?

trees known as "lmmort?-lles," or the
"mother of the cacao." Th??so make a

resembling a cucumber and growing on
tin trunk or large branches, where It
"luttks as though It were artificially at

lima beans Imbedded In pulp. These
furiu the cacao beans of commerce. The
processes "f curing and drying require
