money for him and tako no security for

Tho manner of cultivating tho colTeo
plant varies but llttlo in tho eovcrnl
central American Stales.
Tho coffeo beans nro first planted lu
hot beds, from which they sprput, nnd
shoot five or six inches high, when they
aro removed singly, nnd taken to the
fields which havo been prepared to re
ceive llirjm. Thcro tho young sprouts
orn planted anew, In rows, with u spaco
of from four to six feet between each
plant. For two years they need no
more except an occasional plowing out
of tho wecda which spring up around
them. Tho third year tho plant is from
three to four feet high, nnd commences
to bear, producing about u pound of
coffee fruit. Eacli year ndds'to tho
slzo and productiveness of tho tree, till
it reaches about ton feet in liolght ttfter
which It gives a product of from 3) to
30 pounds of green fruit.
Tho coffee lrult resemblcj In shape,'
slzo and color, a plump cranberry, and
grows clinging closely to tho small,
lateral branches of tho tree. On somo
plantations tho trees lire dwarfed, for
thu double purposo of Increasing tho
rultngu and facilitating picking".
Tho Uuiu of picking tho crop ranges
from December to March. Wheu tho
fruit la ripe, all hands nro employed
men, women and children aud na last
ns picked tho berrlca aro sent to tho
Ills. In caso of rain tho kernels nro
rapidly gathered under shelter, as rain
pon them whllo drying would cause
rreparablo Injury ; and, on somo plan-
ntlons, machines for drying by hot air
have been Introduced. After afow days
n the sun, tho kernels become dry mid
crips; then thrown Into a circular
trough, largo wooden rolleis, shod Willi
Iron, crush the shell and liberate tho
two beans which each shell contains.
The bean has still another coating Its
skin which is tho hardest of all to re
move, but, through long continued at
trition with tho Iron-shod rollers, this
also is mostly removed, and thofannlng-
mill cleans tho beau by blowing away
tho loosened skin and broken shells.
Beforo long tables sit tho natives
oung aud old.chattcringand laughing,
singing ns they work, and on these ta
bles arc poured tho beans as they como
from tho fannlng-mlll. Each Indian
holds a basket in his or her lap, and
1th both hands rapidly picks out sep

remains on tho tablo nothing but bro-
