-The belt of land around the globe, five bun.
,dredMiles north and five hundred miles south of
the equator, abounds in trees producing the gum
of India rubber. They can be tapped, it is sta
ted, for twenty successive seasons, without inju
ry; and the trees stand so oiose that they can
. gather the eap - from eighty treys in one day,
tech tree yielding, on an average, three table
spoonsful deny., Forty-three thousand of these
trees have been counted in a tract of country
thirty miles long by eight wide. There are in
America and EuroPe more than one hundred and
fifty manufactories of India rubber oracles em
ploying some five hundred operatives each, and
consuming Fiero then ten million pounds' of the
gum per year, and the business Is oonliidered to
be still in its infancy. But to whatever extent it
may increase, there will still be plenty of rubber
'to supply the demand.—Day.
The above is strictly, true, with the
slight exception that there is tiota belt
a thousand miles in width where the
India rubber tree is abundant. They
occur in favorable localities within a
lew degrees of the tropics, but the Am-
Jrzon valley sends more India rubber to
- market than the rest of the world. Her
exportations of Indla.rubber, or borra
cha, will hardly 'amount to less than
15,000,000 pounds for 1870, and much
more for the present' year. And the
quality averages bet* than that of
rubber imported from East Indies.
