THE BERMUDA LILY.
How the Flowers Are Transported
Florkscs is in the position, of a coy
maiden with two lovers. She will
bestow her affections on either the
Southern Pacific or Santa Fe the one
that gets here first.
It seems like old times to see three
four-horse stages, loaded down with
passengers, coming into Florence at
one time. It is the mining boom up
the river that B doinif it.
Ox Thursday the Shamrock and
Columbia tried it Hgain, and for the
fifth time the great Internationa'
yacht, race was a fizzle. The pa blio is
losing interest in the matter.
Oub old friend Tom Shultz has
bought out the Preseott Pick ard
Drill, and wilt here&fter manage the
fortunes of that paper. t Tom is a
thorough newspaper man and will un
doubtedly make a success of it.
It is hardly worth while mentioning
the subject of cession of arid lands to
tbe states and territories, now that the
Republican and Governor Murphy are
the only ones in the entire west who
seem to favor such a ridiculous proposition.
PlSAL county could have done better
"than keep Pearl Hart in a lathed-and
plastered jail. It might have sent aer
to Solomonville for safe-keeping. But
there is some little satisfaction in the
fact that her escape saves the county
quite a bill of expense.
Ex-Go vkbnor McCobd and Judge
Still well are entitled to the warmest
-thanks of the people of Arizona for the
ble and successful manner in which
they knocked out the proposition to
cede arid lanes to the states and terri
tories ia the Missoula Irrigation Congress.
The Board of Supervisars of Graham
coanty raised the assessment of the
Detroit Copper company $71,000; and
the company employed Colonel Herring
to fizlil the rase. Judge Doan has
just decided the matter at SolornormH
''o fvor of the company. And so the
county is out. not only the taxen b j;
tlie $5(JQ paid Judge Charley Wrigh.
to assist the District Attorney. Tu
corporations seldom get left.
The Phoenix Enterprise editorially
says of Arizona's delegation to the
Irrigation C ngress: "They went
after results, and "from published re
ports of tbe meeting, the Arizona del
egation secured the passage of every
measure they advocated. The address
es of Judge Still well and ex-Governor
McCord were given wide circulation.
The Los Angeles Times published
Governor McCord'a address ia full.
The people of Arizona, and especially
tbe city of Phoenix, may well feel
proud of the conduct of our delegates
at the Missoula congress."
The Tbibuse has been accused of
being cold-nosed and pessimistic, and
it pleads guilty to the charge. It has
never "boosted" a fake proposition of
any kind, and its editor, during an ex
perience of twenty years among the
mines of Arizona, thinks he has gained
a knowledge of mining which entitles
his opinion to some respect. This
week he his been to Mineral Creek
and the copper basin immediately east
of Florence, and he gives it as his
judgment that there is nothing in Ari
zona equal to it, so far as the extent
of the field goes. There may be
greater individual mines, as United
Verde and Copper Queen, but it took
no immense amount of developmeLt
ivork to prove that. The Tribune ht
no hesitation in predicting that tbe
Kay miues will prove to be the equal of
ljlh,er of them. The surface indica. '

"The majority of people who see the
magnificent display of Easter lilies in
our churches," said a large importer of
these flowers recently, "do not realize
what an immense task it is to get the
blossoms to their destination at the
right time and in the proper condition.
We who have spent years in the busi
ness know how difficult it is to meet
with even a fair share of success, and so
we are not disappointed at failures that
would dishearten a man who did not
understand the methods emplo3-ed in
their. growth and transportation. In the
first place, lilies are grown in Bermuda,
not for the purpose of exporting them
to the United States, but to supply
the demands for bulbs for American
"In Bermuda the flowers are checked
to strengthen the bulbs, or, if permitted
to bloom, are thrown away by the mil
lions. When an American florist pro
cures bulbs from Bermuda in quanti
ties he grows them to blossom at the
right season without regard for the
Bermuda crop, and sells them at prices
ranging from 25 cents to two dollars
per blossom, according to the trade to
which he caters.
"The idea of importing these buds for
sale was first suggested to florists by
the number of them that came through
the egress offices, sent by tourists to
friends at home, and, though more vre
spoiled in transportation than came
through in good condition, the cost of
each flower was, in the end, less than
that quoted on the market. With the
proper knowledge of the peculiarities of
the plants, there was no reason why
their importation should not be made
a paying business, and it was accord
"In gaining the necessary knowledge
some money has been lost. Experience
had to teach when to select, where
to select and whom to trust. The
mistake that was first made was
that of taking buds from growers
nnd- allowing the local express rep
resentatives to attend to ail the de
tails. The result was that some of the
goods reached us in good condition, but
more did not, and we saw that the
only safe plan was to arrange withsome
responsible grower and to fix upon a
certain remuneration, the growers to be
held accountable for the condition of
the goods as they left his hands.
"One great difficulty is this: Easter
may full any time between the close of
March nnd the 25th of April, and there
is danger that the season in Bermuda
may be too early or too late to permit of
the best buds being shipped. This year,
notwithstanding the fact that Easter is
early, our firm received assurances
from its correspondents that the buds
would be in first-class condition.
"The economic advantage of importa
tion is that, while lilies grown here cost
about 25 cents a flower and upward, the
buds imported ean be had for about
six cents a flower. The difference ia
price, of course, stimulates the de
mand. "The buds are packed in boxes con
taining from 50 to 70 each, the aver
age being about 60. Some years the
price, delivered here, has been 12.50 to
$2.50 a box. This year the price was
about $3.25 a box, owing, as I have
explained, to the fact that the grow
er is brought into the transaction, and
is compelled to give his guarantee.
"The buds are green when packed.
There is a stem left on each, perhaps
IS to 20 inches long. Terfect buds should
have no white on them at all when they
leave Bermuda.- Each one is wrapped
in soft paper, and all are packed in a
box of moss, so made that the air may
reach the contents. By the time they
reach here they should have some whitish-yellow
indications. If the leaves
are yellow and the end of the stalk dead,
the bud is hopelessly ruined, and all
effort on it is wasted.
"The way to develop the buds is to
place the ends of the stems in clear,
fiesh water, the temperature of which
will govern the rapidity of develop
ment. Lukewarm water will bring
them out at once, if the room be also
warm. Water at about 40 degrees, a
cool room nnd not too much light will
bring them out in about five days. The
buds will stand the cold all right, but
heat from a stove or steam pipe ruins
them." Philadelphia Pr.ess.
SPECKLED CIGAR WRAPPERS.
Jiew Version of How the Spots Are
Produced on Real Sumatra
Leaf. " ,
Some of the tobacco Imported from
Sumatra for making the wrappers of
cigars has a curious speckled appear
ance.' In the minds of certain buyers
this marking is evidence that the cigar
has a Sumatra wrapper. Such is not
always the case, for the artful manu
facturer has learned how to spot Amer
ican tobacco artificially, and be occa
sionally does so in so clever a manner
that the uninitiated customer ntver
suspects the trick.
Sumatra is a Dutch possession, and
the spotting of the tobacco raised in
that island 'has been made the subject
cf investigation by Prof. Beyerinck, of
tbe Amsterdam Academy of Sciences.
This learned man presented to the
academy a few weeks ago a paper in
which he set forth the results of his
inquiry. He described a "living, fluid
contagion," which he declares is the
cause of the disease. This disorder,
also known as the mosaic disease of to
bacco leaves, may be inoculated into
healthy plants by injecting into the
stem, near a bud, sap pressed from in
fected plants. The active virus passes
completely through the pores of ivery
dense porcelain, and can even penetrate
into agar by diffusion; therefore it can
tot be a "contagiuin fixum"in the usual
sense, but it must be fluid. Out of the
tobacco plant it cannot be made to mul
tiply; but in the dividing tissues of the
leaf-rudiments and the mcristems of
the buds it multiplies freely and over
a great extent. A very small drop of
the porcelain filtrate can render all
the leaves of the infected plant entire
ly covered with spots, and the sap of
these leaves would be sufficient for the
contagion of an unlimited number of
healthy plants. Y. Tribune.

I have no idea," said the dentist's
patient, as he put on his coat after mak
ing an appointment for two hours of
anguish on the following Tuesday;
"I have a plan for filling teeth. It needs
a little work in the arrangement of de
tails, but 1 think it is a great scheme."
"What rs it?" asked the dentist.
."When teeth are to be filled, they
should first be extracted; the filling
could then be done without pain to the
patient, and it would only be necessary
to findyome way to replace the teeth."

Deafness Cannot be Cured
by local applications as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of tbe ear.
There is only one way to cure deaf
ness, and that ia by constitutional
remedies. Deafness is caused by an in
flamed condition of the mucous lining
of the Eustachian Tube. When this
tube is inflamed yon have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when
it is entirely closed, Deafness is the
result, and unless the inflammation
can be taken out and this tube restored
to its normal condition, hearing will j
be destroyed forever; nine cases out of
ten are caused by Catarrh, which is
nothing bnt an inflamed condition of
tbe mucouR surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars
for any caso of Deafness (caused by
catarrh) that eannot be cured by Hall's
Catarrh Cure. Send for circulars ; free.
