Buttons Grow on Bushes.
The ivory buttons you wear do

buttons were probably never nearer
than you took tbe m to the ehell of
a bivalve mollnsk, and the prob
abilities are that no rubber tree
was ever tapped to produce the
hard rubber buttoms that adorn
your overwat. Down in Central
America there is a :ruit producing
palm that has quite metamorphosed
the button business that formed
the nucleus for one of the most im
portant industries in the United
st-toa The seed of this fruit con
tains a milk that is sweet to the
taste and relished by the natives,
Thus the probabilities are that our
buttons are made of a vegetable
milk, and they grow on the bushes.
Ths ivory plant is one of the
marvels of the age and is reward
ing its growers with vast fortunes.
Tho nuts are brought to the United
States by the ship load and hauled
act og the continent to the big
button factories, from which they
issue forth in every conceivable
desig, cohy, grade and classifica
tion of buttons. ' s
The ivory plant has recently
been discovered in California, but
the nut it produces in its wild state
isofinferor quality and will not
make eood bu'tons. It is believed
though, that with the proper cul
tivation the fruit would be as valu
able as the Central America. If so
the growing of buttons in America
will become an industry of impor
tance ceround only to the growing ot
corn, wheat and cotton, for every
body wears buttons. Popular Me

Those who have attended the big
banquets at Delmonico's, such, for
instance, as the one given to Cyrus
Field upon the completion of the
Atlantic Cable, atd which cost $50
a plate, had the privilege of smok
ing the choicest Havana cigars,
costing, perhaps, 50 cents each.
But what would the dinner cost
with cigars at 14 apiece? Yet there
are such cigars being made in
Havana today, and some, have ar
