THE MARKET FOR COFFEE. [To THE EDITOR "POST."] [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898

THE MARKET" FOR COFFEE. [To THE EDITOR "POST."] Sir,-Instead of the people busying themselves in discovering the future market-and price for coffee they should work to grow it. The Cairns r. district v has been beyond a doubt proved to be almost .the home for coffee, both as to- soil arid climate. The quality .of the particle' has also, been proved to be equal, if not superior to, the best onr thc market. Both market anti price can bc reck- oned as -safe as those of. most com- modities for the reason that the coffee si growing localities are not; so numerous as for other productions, whereas-its consumption is spread all over the world, and more so where it cannot be grown, as in thc cold regions. : It isa mistake'to think that London is tlie; best market for coffee. 'English people ^donot.take-tOi.cofleb" drinking ?o'; freely " -as' '~thev continent - "people. Genoa, Marseilles, Havre, Lisbon', Amsterdam and Hamburg are very important coffee markets. .

PRINTER'S ERRORS. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898

PRINTER'S ERRORS. . À; writer in "St. Jaine*' Budget" re- lates that a compositor who waa better acquainted with the geography of the West than with Biblical lore set up the phrase " From Alpha to Omega " as "from Alton to Omaha," and possibly found himself compelled to start for those places next morning. Shortly after the battle of Inkerman one of the morning papers informed'its readers that." after a .desperate struggle the enemy was re- pulsed with great laughter," and only a few. days ago the "Daily Chronicle" announced that one ot the officers on the Indian frontier had died from his words." An amusing instance of the ludicrous effects of wrong punctuation is afforded in the following description of the Jubilee procession-which appeared in anJElast Anglican weekly paper :-" Next came Lord Roberts riding. '. On » grey Arab steed wearing a splendid scarlet uniform, covered with medals on his head, a Field Marshall's hat with "plumes in his hand, the baton of a Field Marshal ,on ...

Do Trees Feel Tides? [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 17 February 1898

Do Trees Feel Tides? A very carious theory lately revived is that the sap of a living tree ebbs and flows in some way in sympathy with the tides of the ocean. This idea comes from Italy, where a grower of vines and other fruit trees, who is also a chemist, - has been- experiment- ing, in this direction. He says that no tree shonld bc lopped or pruned except during: the hours of ebb tide. He has taken fourteen years to come to this conclusion, and: now always acts opon it The result is ? his trees and vines have developed splendid ! foliage, bear, splendid crops, and are j quite free from the attacks of thc I insects which devastate surrounding i properties.. -
