Once on a time —oh, long ago,
When all the world was young,
The sea was made of lemonade,
And the land of chewing gum.
The birds were built of peppermint,
And lived in sugar trees,
And there were no arithmetics,
Or slates or geog’a’'phees !
A little boy and little girl
Ruled as a king and queen—
They put the old folks into jail
"Whenever they were mean ;
And then the boys could play all day
And stay out in the rain,
And never swallowed horrid stuff,
For no one had a pain ;
And no one had to brush his hair,
Or ever wear a hat— 1
Oh, how I wish I'd only lived
In such a time as that !

Grown in Fields and Harvested for the American
Market.—Methods of the Growers.—The Bulbs
Produced in Such Great Quantities and at
Such Slight Expense That Our Home Florists
Cannot Compete.
The impressions of a country drive in
Bermuda, especially along some unfre-
quented highway like that known as the
“Middle road,’’ are not soon to be forgot-
ten. The way leads from Hamilton to
Flat’s village, through the parishes of
‘Smith and Devonshire. Everything
strikes you as strange and novel—the
country people, more black than white ;
the women curtseying when they meet
you ; the men bidding you a cheerful
good morning ; the white-walled cottages
peering through shrubbery ; the omnipres-
ent gray bounding walls, which form part
of the natural rock upon which these
islands are builded ; and above all, the
vegetation. Of our deciduous trees—oaks,
beeches, maples, poplars,—there is hardly
a trace to be seen, nor is anything to re-
place them. All the islands are covered
more or less with cedar trees—not at all
like the far-famed cedars of Lebanon, nor
the colossal growths of Central America,
nor yet those with which we sometimes
adorn (or shall I say deface) our gardens
and cemeteries. These are small and
bushy and resembling stunted firs. But the
wood, when it is found large enough, is
said to be excellent for ship-building. As
the building of ships, has been since time
out of mind, a prominent industry on
these islands, the older land-owners who
are not ‘‘up’’ to the new fangled notion of
bulb raising by which the present genera-
tion is enriching itself, refuse to allow
their land to be cleared, except tree by
tree, as required at the shipyards. Yuceas,
or ‘Spanish bayonets,”’ spring by the way-
side, and aloes occasionally with flower
stems raising 20 or 30 feet, and thickets of
bamboo sending willowy tufts 40 feet into
the air.
Many species of cacti abound, some cul-
tivated in the garden, like the Turk’s cap,
_—"the melon cactus and the night blooming
cereus.. One of the latter plants in front of
a house on Middle road covers an area
equal to a fair-sized room, and I counted
more than 200 superb flowers upon it.
Such sights are calculated to make the
Northern tourist downhearted thinking of
his own little conservatory, where with in-
finite pains, he may sometimes succeed in
nursing into scanty bloom, things that are
here the commonest weeds! This small
mid-ocean world has many characteristics
-distinct from either Europe or America.
In place of Northern cornfields you see
long stretches of bananas, growing in al-
most impenetrable thickets ; and in lieu of
the vineyards and olive groves of the same
latitude of the other side of the Atlantic
here are endless fields of onions and Easter
lilies. Now and then you come across
tropical bits of scenery—sunshiny patches
of palm land, overgrown with coarse brack-
en and bordered with dense jungles of ba-
nanas. The fruit of the latter, by the way,
is an article of food almost as highly prized
here as in the rural districts of Bolivia,
where I once existed for a month without
bread, boiled bananas being the universal
substitute. In the Bermudas bananas de
not quite fill the place of the staff of life,
but they are served at every meal, break-
fast, luncheon. dinner and supper, raw and
cooked in a variety of strange ways.
These island bananas are considerable
smaller than those you buy in the market
at home, but much sweeter and pleasanter
to the taste—probably because fully ripe
and eaten fresh from the stock, instead of
being picked green for shipment and allowed
to soften.
Bluebirds, red cardinals and golden o1-
ioles flit numerously before you,” and the
modest little ground-dove is another fre-
quently-met member of the Bermuda bird
fauna. Straggling lines of white roofs and
chimneys, peeping above and between the
ragged fringe of banana patches, have an
attractive appearance. The country houses
are lower than those in town, but long and
rambling ; and every one of them is roofed
with stone, and glaringly whitewashed, as
the law directs. It is a Govermment edict
that all householders shall keep the roofs
of their dwellings in condition to catch as
much rain water as possible, in order to he
independent of the public reservoirs, for
fear of a water famine in this springless
land. Even the fishermen’s cottages, set
in groups in the little coves along
shore, are of stone, washed as white as
snow ; and all with the universal
green shutters, hung at the top so as to act
as a screen, admitting light and air at the
bottom. The Bermudas never repair an
old house, but leave it to crumble to de-
cay, because building material costs almost
nothing, and it is easier to construct a new
one. Consequently, you meeta great many
picturesque ruins by the wayside, with
roofless walls and gables, weather-stained
and vine-hung. Sometimes it is a large
old manor house, with gaping windows
and weed-choked doorways; through which
nobody ever comes or goes, unless it be
ghosts in the ‘‘witching time,’’ or, more
frequently a solitary chimney, rising fron
a shapeless mass of moss-grown stones,
speaking of household fires never more to
be rekindled, and of somebody‘s heartache
in remembering unreturned days.
About a mile from Hamilton you pass
the military station called Prospect ; and
perhaps a mile further on an extensive salt
morass, bordered by some fine cedar trees.
Luckily there are no snakes in this happy
island, and so far as reptiles are concerned,
you may explore with safety the thickets
of scrub and palmettos in search of queer
aquatic plants not to be found elsewhere,
But there is some danger nevertheless of
verdure-covered sink holes, or of a sudden
plunge through an opening in the roof of
some deep cavern, whose floor may he the
sea, for this coral reef if honeycombed with
them. At one edge of the pond stands the
old parish church of Devonshire—an anti-
quated structure long since abandoned for
the new one near by. It is surrounded
by ancient cedars—the very ghost of trees,
stretching bony, leafless limbs above the
graveyard, whose mossy stones bear many
quaint inscriptions. Flatt’s village, just
beyond, is the central place from which to
visit some of the loveliest scenery of the
islands. Before the abolition of slavery,
which put such a damPer on agriculture.
this was one of the principal ports of Ber-
muda—a thriving town of considerable
trade. The shores of the pretty inlet were
lined with wharves, where vessels re-
ceived and discharged their cargoes. But
now the capacity of this warehouse can
only be guessed by the extent of their
ruins. Everything wears a look of desola-
tion, the molding walls, many of them
with stately carved portals, draped with
vines and prickly cacti, and overshadowed
by:plantains and gigantic paws. Over the
gateway of one of them leans the largest
mahogany tree of Bermuda. It is an in-
fant of only 30 years growth, but its
‘‘waist”’ already measures over seven feet.
Unnumbered branches shoot out four feet
from the ground, covered with dark, glossy
leaves, and its top is as flat as a floor.
Although Bermuda soil is said to be ex-
traordinarily fertile, yielding with a mod-
erate amount of care two crops of Irish po-
tatoes and ore of sweet potatoes in a single
year, or two, and sometimes even three
crops of barley, oats and corn—you are as-
tonished at the uncultivated look of the
whole country. Here and there are bits of
garden—always running up into the ubi-
quitous cedar bush ; but most of the land
seems to be used for grazing purposes
—and very indifferent grazing, too. You
notice one peculiarity among the four-
footed denizens of the island, viz., that
they are all black and white. Another od-
dity is that all the animals appear to be at
anchor—cattle, goats, pigs, donkeys, even
the hens tug at the end of a tether, as if
perchance they might be tempted to de-
sert their island home.
Most fruits will grow in the Bermudas,
both those of the North and the tropics, but
the truth is while some lemons, oranges,
peaches, strawberries, etc., are ‘seen in the
gardens, not nearly enough is produced for
home consumption. So, too, with the
vegetables. No climate in the world is
better adapted for the raising of potatoes,
tomatoes, beets and onions, and the place
is so circumstanced geographically that it
ought to be, and to a certain limited extent
is, the market garden of our Eastern cities.
But it is the old story of shoemakers’ who
have to go without shoes, or taking coun-
try board for the sake of bread and new-
laid eggs to find that such things bring too
much money to be eaten where they grow,
and are only to be had in town. If you
want to eat Bermuda potatoes and onions
while in Bermuda you must bring a barrel
of them along with you from New York,
for they are all exported to that city and to
Philadelphia, and sold at high prices ahead
of the Northern season, while others are
imported from New York at a lower price.
In the early days of the colony, when affairs
were under the control of the company,
large crops of tobacco were successfully
cultivated and became an important arti-
cle of export to England. But now there is
not a tobacco plantation in the Bermudas.
During the seventeenth century a brisk
trade was carried on with oranges and
lemons ; but that, too, dwindled away.
Shipbuilding and the manufacture of salt
at Turk’s Island flourished for a time,
after the decline of agriculture, and Ber-
muda carried on considerable commerce
with the West Indies, the British provin-
ces that the United States in ships built of
her own cedar. That trade has slipped
away ; and nowadays beyond the cultiva-
tion of arrow root and lily bulbs, and the
early vegetables which are shipped to our |
land, there are no industries of account in
he islands. The Bermudas claim that
theirs is the very best arrrow root in the
world. and certainly brings the highest
price in market. A lily farm is a rare
sight—acres of odorous blossoms of waxy
whiteness. You do not find them along
the shores of this islands, because the At.
lantic winds are too severe for the delicate
flowers ; but inland, in sheltered places,
generally in ‘‘pockets’’ at the base of the
hills, where the soil is rich and red, But
the popular impression. that the lilies are -
grown for the sake of supplying Northern
markets with blossoms for the Easter seas-
on is erroneous ; the lilies themselves are
only a by-product, incidental to the grow- |
ing of the bulbs, which. are the important |
article of commerce with Europe and Amer-
ica. True, a good many lilies are sent to
New York for the Easter week, but at any |
other time of the year the visitor is wel- |
come to help himself to all he can carry.
The bulbs are dug and shipped early in the !
summer. Florists in this country get them i
during the latter part of July, and plant
them in pots, which are kept ‘in the shade.
As soon as they are sprouted the pots con-
taining them are brought into the green-
house, so that the plants may be forced in-
to bloom by Christmas. Those intended
for Easter are started in the pots a few
weeks later. [It is very important to judge
accurately of the time required because lil-
ies that are worth $3 the day before Easter
Sunday are hardly worth a cent on Mon-
The soil and climate of the Bermudas
seem to be especially adapted to lily grow-
ing, and for 80 years past their culture has
been an increasing industry. It is easy work,
or Bermudans would not indulge in it—
merely scratching the ground in proper
places being quite enough. The outer por-
tion of each bulb consists of scales, you
know, overlaying one upon the other.
These scales represent layers, and at the
base of each of them isa bud. Each bud
represents a plant. The Bermuda farmer
saves a few of his bulbs every year for seed,
as the Northern farmer saves potatoes for
the same purpose. . He pulls off the scales
and plants them in September, in shallow
boxes of moist sand. From the bulbs
spring delicate rootlets, which quickly ex-
tend through the sand, seeking for mois-
ture. As soon as the roots are sufficiently
formed the embryo plants are set out. By
the following summer little bulblets are
developed. These the farmer calls his stock.
It takes about 60,000 of them to plant in
an acre. They keep on growing through all
the mild weather of this latitude, and in
the following June are ready to be dug.
An acre of land ought to produce 40,000
marketable bulbs, with a diameter from 4
to 7 inches. It takes four years and some-
times longer to produce the great bulbs
from 9 to 14 inches in diameter, from which
spring the tall stalks crowded with, many
blossoms. The earliest bulbs are dug out
by the middle of June thoush they are not
fully ripened until three or four weeks
later. The tubers must be picked up as
soon as they are taken out of the ground,
because half an hour of glaring sunshine
would ruin them irretrievably. No curing
is necessary. They are merely packed
in sand, which seems to preserve them bet-
ter than any other material.
The grower has boards, with four holes
of different sizes in them, and the bulbs
are ‘‘sorted’’ by being passed through these
holes. You see the lily fields covered
with plants varying in height from a few
inches to two or three feet. Thesmall ones
are the stalks of the young bulbs ; the tall-
est ones are sent to the United States for
the Easter trade. The bulbs are packed in
strong wooden boxes strapped with iron,
each box containing perhaps 400 bulbs of
ordinary size. The bulbs which are dug
in June for the United States markets have
already flowered in March. It is only dur-
ing the last few years that the Bermuda
lily farmers have hit upon the plan of cut-
ting the flowersand shipping them to the
United States to compete with the Easter lil-
ies furnished by the American florists.
Thus the bulbs may be said to furnish two
crops. The flowers of their first season may
be marketed from Bermuda, while the roots
from which these blossoms were obtained
are forwarded three months later to the
United States that they may yield a sec-
ond crop when potted and forced by Ameri-
ican florists. Naturally this sort of compe-
tition is regarded by the United States flor-
ists as highly objectionable. Owing to the
weekly lines of steamers now plying be-
tween New York and the Bermudas, mak-
ing the trip in 70 hours, the island farmer
can easily flood the markets with cut flow-
ere at less price than our florists can afford
to sell them as those of the latter have
been produced indoors at great expense.
Given the proper condition of soil and
climate, bulb-gowing is profitable and cer-
tain. The farmer can be reasonably sure of
the price from year to year, and he usually
expects to realize a profit of $2 per thousand
bulbs, sold in lots of 100,000. Hyacinths,
tulips and crocuses are grown in vast
quantities on the dykes of Holland, their
cnltivation being one of the most impor-
tant industries of that country. Here the
work in the lily field is largely done by
negroes, though you may sometimes see
white men, women and children in the
small patches. After the ground has been
once scratched up with a plow. the culti-
gation is entirely with and implements,
chiefly with a large mattock-like-hoe. One
who has never seen a Bermuda lily field
cannot be made to realize what it looks like,
or what a superabundance of the beautiful
blossoms there is here during a portion of
the year. Stately flower stalks are much
more common here than daisies and dande-
lions at home, and are given away by the
thousands. Children on the road throw
great bunches of them into passing car-
riages, and actnally the number of them
at last become cloying and visitors tire of
the ever-present odor. The most success-
ful lily-grower in the Bermudas is General
Hastings, formerly of the U.S. Army, a
nephew-in-law of the late President Hayes.
His place called Fairyland, is rightly
named. Here the main island is cut up
most marvelously into little bays, isthmus-
es and peninsulas, like the bits of a puzzle
map, and coves are in turn studden with
green islets reposing in magical beauty on
a summer sea. Being wounded almost un-
to death in the Civil War, General Hastings
came here for his health, and having some-
how managed to evade the law forbidding
alien ownership of land in the islands, has
remained for happiness. And truly a more
dreary existence can easily be imagined than
to live among, the lilies of Fairyland.—

Surprise, wonder and admiration fol-
low in the track of the little conqueror.
People are talking about it every-
where, and such cases as that of Mrs.
J. H. Butler, a resident of Pittston,
are getting to be every-day occur-
ences. Our representative called on
Mrs, Butler at her place of residence,
No. 139 Searle street, and she gave the
following brief account of her case.
She says: ‘‘About a year ago I began
to have severe pains in my back in the
region of my kidneys. Sometimes the
pain was worse than at others, and
with each attack it grew more severe,
The last attack I had left me so I
could not lift anything at all that had
any heft to it, and the hardest part
was to attempt to rise from any stoop-
ing position. I can only describe the
pain as a continuous dull one, inter-
spersed with sharp piercing ones in
the small of my back. If I attempted
to rise from a chair after continued
sitting 1 found it a difficult matter. I
managed to get along in this way
with my household duties, for I was
determined not to give up, but I felt
many times as though positively
must. I read of some ofthe cures per-
formed by Doan’s Kidney Pills, and
comparing the symptoms described
with mine I concluded the Pills would
help me, and I procared a box and be-
gan to take them regularly, according
to directions. Within three days I felt
better and continued to improve every
day. I must admit they have pertect-
ly cured me, and this much sooner
than I could have anticipated possible.
I am perfectly satistied with the re-
sults; and glad to be able to inform
other sufferers about Doan's Kidney
Pills, =o that they may know what to
use who are in that condition.”
