Tea Growing Experiments
in the United States.
Prospects of the Industry.

HE century which has re
cently been ushered into
existence will see an ad
dition to the already long
dst of reasons why 'there can
never be a repetition of that fa
mous "Boston tea party" which helped
to bring on the Revolutionary War.
Thls new preventive is found in the
fact that long ere the present cycle of
t hundred years is rounded out, Uncle
Sam will, in all probability, be produc
ing within his domain sufficient tea
leaves for all the soothing beverage
f'hich his people can possibly drink,
snd mayhap will have some to spare
tg his brethren across the sea.
That this will be a highly desirable
consummation must be appreciated
eaten by the person who never sipped
a cup of tea in his life. For one thing,
it will enable the poorer classes to ob
tain good tea at lower prices, and for
another it will keep in the coffers of
the American people a fortune,
amounting to many million dollars an
nually, which now goes to feed and
clothe men and women on the other
side of the globe. Under present con
ditions every man, woman and child
in the United States consumes about
twenty cents' worth of tea each
twelvemonth, and the immense aggre
gate sum is divided among the tea
growers in China, Japan and Ceylon,
several middlemen and agents, and the
vessel owners who carry the precious
product to market.
The best feature of the new era
which is coming, however, is found in
the fact that finer tea can be grown
In the United States than in the
Orient. This has been conclusively
proven by some interesting experi
Iments which the United States De
i)artment of Agriculture has been con
ducting during the past few years at
THE TEA PLANT.
the plineer tea plantation established
in the New World.
As soon as the Secretary of Agricul
ture became convinced that tea culture
in the South was not only practicable
but might be made profitable as well,
he arranged for the institution of an
experimental plantation In South Caro
lina. The site selected has proven a
most admirable one. Pinehurst, as it
is called, consists of about seven hun
,ircd acres of beautiful rolling country
thkikly strewn with wood-lands. About
ii'ty acres of the splendid estate were
transformed into tea gardens, and this
apportionment has gradually been ex
tended. The tiny seeds which had
been brought from the Far East were
left to repose in earthy beds, prepared
and sweetened with all the care which
could possibly be bestowed upon a
couch of soil. Diminutive shades were
even provided to screen these babies
of the plant world from the glare of
the sun, and then the tea planters
anxiously awaited results.
At first the little immigrants did not
appear to take kindly to the foreign
clime, and the investigators became
so "discouraged that they were well
nigh ready to give up the experiment,
when, just in the nlck of time, fate
smiled, with the result that these
American tea gardens now contain
thousands of bushes, each composed
of many separate stems. Better still.
the practical side of the enterprise has
commenced to make a favorable show
ing. The field of the plantation is
increased by one-eighth each year and
the tea produced is so vastly superior
to the black tea which comes over the
ocean that it sells for a dollar a pound,
or three or four times as much as the
importations from China or Japan, and
thus nets the Government a very
handsome profit on Its investment.
But because the tea which has thubs
far been produced in Dixie has sold
for three or four times the price of
the crslap leaves wbhich have been ear
rled halt way round the world, It must
not be supposed that the argument re
gardlng the ultimate cheapness of
American tea is without foandation.
The Government offelais hae demon
atrated that under ordinary ciram
stances four hundred pounds of tea
can be counted upon as the yield of
each "acre in a plantation. The tea
can be grown and put on the market
at fifteen cents per pound. Thus i
the .shop keepers sell this msuperlaor
grade df tea at the'smne prles that
are now charged or the inferlor im
ported teas, tqhe ws almost doule
their money, aud presumably some of
theumwiU be satisfied with less profit
than tblo wsbe compeutloP becomes
The 'United States Government Is
now plannin, to distribute tea plants
free to all Southern colleges that will
agree to assist the Department of Agri
culture in establishing tea gardens on
their land. Special scientific agents
are being sent out to give advice, and
after a thorough investigation has
been made of the possibilities of the
Gulf States for tea culture, experi
ments will be conducted In Tennessee,
North Carolina, Arkansas, Indian Ter
R L T E A .
ritory, Oklahoma Territory, Missouri
and other border States. Climatic
conditions, rainfall ilTd soil must,
however, ,ll be favorable to conduce
to successful tea culture, and the
American tea growers have already
discovered that it is useless to try to
propagate the plants where the winter
temperature is lower than fifteen de
grees above zero. An average of an
inch of rainfall every week in the
year is also essential, although it is
hoped to overcome this necessity by
means of Irrigation.
One of-the most tedious tasks which
has confronted the pioneer tea grow
ers has been that of determining what
species of tea plants give the best r.e
suits when transplanted to this con
tinent. In order to demonstrate this
a number of miniature tea gardens
have been provided, and in each some
particular variety is carefully nursed
under special treatment. Thus the
visitor to this romantic nook in South
Carolina may see, growing side by
side, Japanese, Chinese, Ceylonese and
American tea. The difference in the
quantity of tea yielded by a single
bush presents as wide a range in the
case of the different varieties as is
the case in the Orient, where the pro
duct varies from one ounce from each
bush in Japan, to eight or ten ounces
from the average bush in India and
One of the problems which has puz
sled the Americal tea planters not a
little is that of securing helpers at
wages low enough to enable competi
tion with the ridiculously cheap labor
of the Mongolians. Machinery now
does much of the work of preparing
the tea for market, but the leaves
must be picked by hand, and with all
the economy that can be exercised it
costs just about eight times as much
to secure the harvesting of a pound of
tea in South Carolina as it does in
Asia. Even as it is the cost would be
greater had not the projectors of this
initial tea plantation happily hit upon
the plan of employing colored school
children as pickers.
A school house is maintained on the
plantation, and in the intervals be
tween learning to read and write the
youngsters are taught how to pick tea.
None of these juvenile toilers can ap
proach in rapidity the recoris of the
expert pickers of Asia, but it is
claimed that they are far more careful
in the selection of the leaves than
their rivals on the opposite side of the
world. About three days are required
for the force of pickers to make the
rounds of the gardens, and this must
be done every ten days, or about a
score of times during the season.
As expert can gather anywhere from
ten to twenty pounds of fresh leaf a=
day. Some of the little pickers earn
fifty or sixty cents a day, but the ma
Jority do not receive more than twen
ty or thirty cents.
The method of procedure after the
tea leaves have been picked is not a
very intricate one. The crisp leaves
are gathered, as plucked, into Swiss
trout baskets, where they are per
mitted to lie as loosely as possible lest
they become heated. Each basketful,
as it is brought lato the factory, is
carefully examined sad after being
weighed is spread to dry in a cool,
clean place, Tea Mnafacture proper
consists of two proeeuses. In the one
the tiny oil cells I tihe leaf are broken
and the contents aetracted by hot
water, while by the other the leaves
are once more dried thoroughly.
The product of such a method of
handling is the green tea of commerce,
If it is desired to produce black tea,
two additional stages of evolution must
be introduced-the withering, or prep'
aratlon of the leaf for rolling, and
oxidation, which involves certain
chemical changes. To such an extent
has mechanical genius entered the
field of tea production, that the black
tea secured at Pinehurst may now
fairly be said to be largely machine
made. The sifting, rolling, oxidation
and firing are all done by mechanical
process. A phase of the handling of
the tea in which the Ainerican grow
ers ha4 exercised exceptional care is
found in the curing of the leaf. No
direct sunlight is allowed to strike the
leaves, either when they are being
withered or during the process of final
The possibilities .of tea culture in
this country would seem to be almost
infinite. Not only may the standard
grades be raised in quantities, but it
is believed to be possible to produce
some of those marvelous teas known
only to dwellers in the Orient, for the
reason that no means has ever been
devised to successfully transport them
to this country.
It costs upwards of fifty dollars an
acre to set out and raise the tea plants,
and thousands of dollars must be ex
pended for a factory in addition to
the constant outlay for labor. A tea
garden, when once established, how
ever, represents an institution that
will stand for centuries.-The Book

narrow channel that makes the lower
reaches of the Thames navigable to
ocean-going vessels. Wonderful as the
sight is by day, its beauty and its im
pressiveness are multiplied tenfold in
the ruddy afterglow of a summer's
evening, or the velvety luminous dark
ness of a frosty winter's night. But,
unfortunately for the artist, the pic
turesque is of little avail in the utili
tarian days, and the port of London
has for years been falling from its
proud position as the facile princeps
of the shipping centres of the world.
Years ago, in its heydey, the port
of London was far and away the most
prosperous In the world. Judged by
tonnage or numbers of vessels or value
of cargo, the shipping passing through
the port was not merely far ahead
of all the other ports, but was more
than double that of any other port of
the world. Two years ago New York
equaled, and this year bids fair to sur
pass, the old marine capital of the
world; other ports are rapidly creeping

and Liverpool are becoming formida

A Sewing waeitne Made For Surgeons I

Dr. Paul Michel recently showed and
described to the Medical Congress at 1
Paris a little marvel of ingenuity,

ancient method of sewing the skin.

the Barbler prize, destined for the in- I

utility and superior to any employed I
or suggested, previously. 1
To stitch a wound the surgeon has a
hitherto had to pass a needle through I
the edges of the skin, then pass the
wire through, take the needle out, I
press the edges of the wound together,
make a knot, make a second knot, and
cut the wire-in all eight distinct
movements. The operation was long
and painful, and in many cases an
anaesthetic had to be administered.
With the sewing machine the opera
tion is quick and simple. With the
left hand the surgeon draws together
the edges of the wound, and holding
the machine in the right hand, he e
presses the forceps or the edges of the
wo-und. From twenty to thirty stitches
can be put in in less than a minute,
and that number is sufficient to close
a wqund of twelve inches in length.
The stitches are little clasps of
nickel, the ends of which have minute
points in order to prevent slipping.
When in position they take the form
of a V,. the little points penetrating
the epidermis, but not the dermis. This I

Bullds House Over Wife's Grave .
Colonel Elijah De Board, of Gilmer
County, Georgia, is probably the only
man in the United States whose home
is over a grave. This unusual habita
tion is not due to eccentricity, or for
the purpose of attracting notoriety,
but Is simply a case of loyal devotion
shown in a visible way to the memory
of his wife.
The recent loss of his partner in life
affected him deeply, since which time
he has become a recluse. His devo
tion has been carried to an extreme,
it is thought by his neighbors, as he
has given u[ living in his large home
and has just built a house on the spot
where his beloved wife rests, on the
beputiful mountain side near his home.
The structure is a small but substan
ttal octagon of stone, and on the iron
door opening into the single room is
the following inscription: "One in life,
and one in death."
In the right hand corner is the grave
of his wife, while a secondary space
near by he has reserved for himself,
where, at the end he. can find repose.
Around the windows flowers have
been planted, and the venerable patri
arch spends the days in beautifying
the surroundings of his strange home.
On the anniversary of her death,
with the assistance of a local pastor,
the funeral ceremony is repeated. The
Colonel has turned a deaf ear to num
erous entreaties of his friends to give
up his solitary ab6de, as he has ex
pressed tile desire to spend the re
mainder of his days ia this tomblike
structure.-New York Herald.
