The sugar produced, which is of the
finest grade. is amply sufficient for
the consumption of the island's peo-
ple, and much is exported chiefly to
the United States.

dies, where tropical fruits grow lux-
uriantly. Sugar cane, tobacco, coffee,
and fruits are the chief products of the
island. Porto Rico's rivers have been
among the agencies which have con-
tributed most to her growth in wealth.
The soil is fertile, but it has to be thor-
oughly cultivated.
Sugar cane was imported into Porto
Rico from the Canary Isles 300 years
ago. The plantations range in size
from small plots up to thousands of
acres. The planting is done between
October and December and the crop
is gathered some time between Jan-
uary and May. The exact time of
planting of each field depends upon
the dryness of the soil.
The cane is planted in hills, four
feet apart, by setting cuttings in the
ground. The two upper joints are de-
tached from 'the stalk of cane and
these slips are set in the furrows
made by the plow. Two slips are
planted together, ten inches deep. The
top of each shoot is left above the soil,
about an inch of the green tips show-
ing. When the cane is well planted
it will take care of) itself for eight ori
ten years, since the roots send up1
shoots. In other words, sugar cane
replants itself. Most farmers re-1
plant, however, every four or five
years. The cane grows best in the,
thick, black soil of the southern cost.1
There are many large sugar mills in1

The free tariff was thought to be a
death blow to the sugar industry of
the island, for Porto Rico could not
produce as much sugar as Cuba and
other of her competitors, and conse-
quently could not sell it cheaply and
still draw a profit on its At first sev-
eral of the sugar mills went out of
business. The European war has been
a great help to the industry,showever,
due to the-great demand for sugar. It
is selling at a high price and brings a
good income to the island.
The tobacco industry stands second
to the production of sugar. Tobacco
is successfully grown only in a rich
soil. The soil needs to be enriched
each year by strong fertilizers, since
tobacco weakens its productive power.
The low-lying foothills near the val-
ley levels and under the shadows of
the more rugged mountains furnish
good tobacco fields. Between July and
November the plants begin to grow and
the tobacco leaf is ready for cutting
by the middle or last of March. The
leaves are then dried.
Porto Rican tobacco is one of the
finest tobaccos in the world. Many of
the so-called Havana brands come
from Porto Rico. Large tobacco fac-
tories are to be found in the largest
cities and the work is done by thou-
sands of men and women. A trip
through a tobacco factory is exceed-
ingly interesting and very instructive.

Book Published in Honor of Museum
Curator at Washington; Issue
Limited to 200 Copies
A copy of "Holmes Anniversary
Volume of Anthropological Essays,"
which was presented to W. H. Holmes,
curator of the National museum at
Washington, on his seventieth birth-
day by his friends and co-laborers, has
been received by the University Li-
brary.
"The University is very fortunate in
securing a copy of this work," said
Librarian William Bishop, "in view of
the fact that but 200 copie.s were is-
sued. The donation of this book to Mr.
Holmes is in accordance with the Ger-
man custom of giving a man a set of
essays, usaally written by his students
or colleagues, upon a subject in which
he is interested, as a token of esteem."
According to Librarian Bishop, this
custom is gaining popularity in this
country. Up to the present time there
has been but few instances in which
a man has been honored in this man-
ner in the United States.
The volume is handsomely bound
and contains numerous engravings.
Some of the more important articles
included are: "The Influence of Geol-
ogy on the Human Development," by
Gerard Fowke; "The Cult of the Axe,"
by George Grant MacCurdy, and nu-
merous subjects concerning the Indian,
race and cliff dwellers.

MARINES ARE GOOD MARKSMEN
Seventy-three Per Cent of Corps Have
"Skilled" Ranking
Washington, Jan. 20-Declarations
that since the days of frontier life have
passed, Americans are no longer en-
titled to their former fame as rifle-
men are completely refuted by statis-
tics, say officers of the United States
marines. These officers recently com-
piled data showing that splendid shoot-
ing qualities are still characteristic of
American troops.
More than 73 per cent of the 6,141
members of the United States marine
corps who fired during 1916, on the
14 marine corps rifle - ranges, are
qualified skilled men, according to
the table just compiled. Of these sea
soldiers, 921, or 15 per cent, are ex-
pert riflemen; 1,044, or 17 per cent,
are sharpshooters; and 2,518, or 41 per
cent, are marksmen.
It is doubtful if Leatherstocking him-
self could outshoot them, say the ma-
rines.,
