The beautiful harbor of quaint old Kingston is protected by a long ntul narrow strip of Innd, past which the sten Mini's com» slowly from tho north, and around whoso point thoy enter still more slowly, rounding in by old Port Royal, whence long siiico set forth upon his memorable raid Morgan, the buc'cimoor. Jnmaica takes Its nnmo from mi old Indian won!, signifying "wood and water." Aud most appropriately so called. Tlio streams descending seaward from tho mountain regions of tho center aro numlierlcss. Thorn is hardly a month in tho year when everything has not a fresh and deliciously spring like look. Tho bloom of the hillsides is eternal; the fruits lire marvelous. 1'nss through tlio Victoria market on a Ilecemlicr day and you can hardly refrain from exclaiming aloud at tho variety, quality, mid, indeed, tho cheupness of everything. Tho nmrket presents a lively scene. The negroes and negrossos, mostly kindly faced old uncles nnd aunties, aro irrepressible its venders. You may not desire to pui'ehivse; you may oven have resolved firmly not topurrhuso; yet you do purchase—and in astonishing quantities. Tho old woman rushes at you with an "O, my sweet pretty young mistress!" or "My dear lmu'some nittssul" lays hold upon your arm and argues you into Hint a basket to put things in, and then something to put in it. They make in Jamaica very pretty little baskets, too, hand plaited, of a sort of ru-hes. These <110 wild at "thriippcneo" (six conts) apiece, or larger ones at fourpenco. Tl:oy aro very nice for souvenirs of Kingston, and strangers always t;tl;e invdy several. Tho market is n wide pavilion built of brick and stone. O110 end of it faces upon the sea, and here the ilsh aro received fresh at lit o'clock «Mich morning. One llnds nearly all tlio vegetables of the tcinporato zone as well its the products of tho tropics. Uero aro potnUios und cabbages und squashes, 110 lets than huge yarns, and fragrant little mandarin oranges and the kind of granadilla (or little ]K>megraiwite), with a lianl shell, that, is indigenous, This hard shell grmuidilla, by tho way, is nice to darn stockings over, tho ladies say. li'side the regular market there is 011 ojv'ii inui'kct place, where venders too poor to hire space in the pavilion are prmlegiil to gather anil cry their wares. Hero also 0110 si'es a great number of little donkeys; these stand putieutly waiting, having hroughtthcir master'.-, or mistress' product Into town, to return home. Perhaps a pickaninny or a good si/."d chunk of 11 girl may rido hoino donkey baek. The Kingston park is one of the loveliest spots imaginable. Iintering by tho main gale one comes very soon to the fountain, 011 either side of which t wo huge trees provide all etemalaad pcnctrtihlo roof. Everywhere aro seen superb «jrchids and poyiitsettas. Tho Honoring tree «Milled tho "Jerusalem tiiorn" provid«'s a splendor of its own. This latter grows wild along the road from Kingston up to (¡or-don Town; many a cottage is completely embowered and crimson roofed with its douse foliage. The road up to Gordon Town is a romantic anil a delightful tlrivo of nine miles. Aliov'o Gordon Town Olio may take saddle horses and proceed' on up into the mountains ils far as Now C;istIo, where is a military station. Seen from afar tho whito houses of tho «'amp high on tho mountain si Ware picturosquo in the extreme. liut Kingston rtlono supplies tho visit«ir with suilkii-nt that is interesting and «piaint to till a book. There is a midday sleepiness about tin' narrow streets. ,Some of tlio slio|«, with their failed green shutters, make ono think of a painted stage scene. Tho lietter dwelling houses uv> mostly built with high und solid brick walls before them, and on ground considerably above the level of the street. Originally tho streets were of tho same level, but the little strojims of wutiT flowing constantly down through tlu'm—a primitive drainage system, indent — have washed them away. Tho pal i.di church stands up with a stately purity of its oivn— whito above tlio dull yellow of brick of the city. Kingston is rattier closely built. It bona |Hipulalion of 70,0110.

Tho Jamaica negroes aro a curious ptniple. Out.siile of their own country thoy are (lisa-grceablo mortals—highly offensive, indeed, to many. At homo they aro happy, good na-tured, honest nnd obliging. Tlicy have many superstitions, and their languago is an car puzzling jargon. Ti:oy seem tu bo tiK'aklnga foridgn tongue, but it is only their Jamaica English. They have some words of their own. An American is 11 liuckra; a strange child a pick'ny, A ghost is u iluillo. There is a beautiful little bluo flower that grows wild in the country. They uUI it the dufilo-fei'-fee— tho ghost's whistle—liecauso tho wind blowing over fields of its pile bloom catches in its jica shaped blossoms anil cuus«» a timid, musical sort of whistle.

Then there Is the plant whose unimportant blossom leaves a shiny, bard seed pod of delicate lavender hue, These poda ore called Judas'tears. Thoy are strung for necklaces with pretty efToct. The smaller estates— residence« out from Kingston—ore called "pens." Any number, of these may be seen as ono drives up to Gordon Town. They ore beautifully kept, with shrubbery carefully pruned and tasteful gardening. The governor's residonce is also seen on this road—a massive pile of gray stone, with extensive grounds. There ore street cars in Kingston, odd vehicles, very open, with right angle seats, uncomfortable to behold, drawn by mules and driven by voluble darklos. The tracks are singlo, of course; In such narrow streets it could not bo otherwise. Occasionally two ears meet by mistake. Then ensues a lively scena Each driver dismounts and procoods to discourse upon the rank carelessness of tho other. Recriminations fly through the air. Hot words lead to epithets. Tlio discussion becomes wrathful. Meantime the passengers are getting impatient of the delay. They too become angry. At length tho mules aro changed from car to car, the drivers chango, the passengers change. Tho cars aro constructed to go In either direction. Crack goes the whip, up tho brake, jingle the bells, and oiT tbey start once again. OUR NEW YORK LETTER. THE ART FLORI8T AND WHAT HE DOES FOR SOCIETY IN GOTHAM.

Through gradually acquired generalizations higher points of view have been reaehedi old notion» have been discarded for nower and broader ou«3s. Professor Langloy tells us of tho "now astronomy;" the doctrine of the conservation of energy has given us a new physics; evolution, a new biologyi and tho study of «Jarlion compounds, a new chemistry. Bo, too, the application of tlio microscope to the study of rocks has given us a now geology. The recent development in the science of the earth consists of tho return to the work begun by its earliest pioneers. Tho old petrographers were right. If we would know tho life history of our planet we must learn tho origin, structural relations and composition of our rocks. We must discover the forccs—chemical and physical—which work in and upon them, ami wo must boo how they work. As I havo already said, tho early geologists had full faith in tlio importance of Uielr lalxirs, but they were forced to abandon them by a lack of methods and appliances suitable to copo with tho difficulties ]mwilted. Today this importance is not diminished, but rather Increased, by what haa liecn accomplished along other lines. If wo can renew tho attack upon tho old <]uestions with improved weapons, the rewards of victory aro as promising as over. It is belioved that such weapons aro now in our hands, and the hopo of succcss is almost daily attracting fresh and earnest workers to the ranks from evory land.- % [Special Correspondence.} Nkw Yoiuc, Sept. 8 —The increasing complexity of modern life is constantly producing new industries. The latest of these is the trade or profession of the art florist, although the name glv«js a very Incomplete idea of tho fact. The art florist, like the old fashioned florist, Is the proprietor of hot houses nnd the other facilities for growing the finost forinsof Vegetable life. Beyond this ho must be a landscape gnrdener, an art decorator and a scientific horticulturist. One of the leading members of this new guild is a man of Astoria. In speaking of his vocation he said: I went into this business throo years ago. I had been a florist practically all of mv life, and I had noticed the growing demand for exports iu now and peculiar fields of floriculture. Tho demand oamo from tho wealthy classes, and as tho remuneration was very handsome, I concluded to make it a specialty, which I did. The business is very pleasant, but very trying. My own experience will givo a fair notion of its difficulties. I was sent for on ono occasion to see a fernery in Pennsylvania. The owner of tho placo hail built somo mounds of rock and bowlders and planted them with for)]», mosses and forest plants. He and his gardener took every euro of them, but nearly all the plants withered and dieil. I examined tlio place very critically, and was greatly puzzled. I was on tho point of giving tho matter up, when it occurred to 1110 to study tho bowlders of which the rockeries were made. I pulled ono out and shattered it with a sledge hammer, and then found that, instead of being stouo, it was slag from some furnace in tho neighborhood, so fuU of limo and sulphur as to be a dea<lly poison to whatever plant grew near it. I re-made tho mounds, substituting genuine rocks for these furnace products, and there has been 110 troublo there since. Another source of troublo and loss, and ono that grows daily more and moro common, is tho poisoning of tho atmosphere of conservatories by sewer gas, and especially by ordinary Illuminating gas. Such ploces aro almost always lighted by gas, and tho pipes are generally so arranged that when they leak tlio gas esca]>es into tho soil as well as into the air. The latter is bad enough, but tho former Is ruinous. A very small amount of gas will kill the strongest treo, ns everybody knows who lives in a large city. The only safo rule is to havo the gas pipes run on tho outside of tho conservatory, introducing a branch through tlio sido or top, wherever it is desired to locate a burner. Far- better still is it to use tho electric light, which not only does no harm but actually benefits the plants upon which it falls. Floral de-signing is an endless task. Every customer has' somo hobby which must be olioyed to the hitter. , One wishes the most brilliant floral effects anil has his garden or grounds laid out with only the brightest colored flowers; another prefers leaf effects, and has everywhere great bedsDf plants with differently colored leaves; a third runs to vines and creepi'rs, and indulges in ivy, wistaria and Virginia creeper U|khi his builders and every conceivable vino ujiou polos, trellises ainl arbors; a fourth cures only for orchids, nnd a fifth for rare exotics. The public is unaware of tho vast amounts of money which are annually expended in horticultural channels: It must lie up in tho millions. I presume thnt the late Mrs. Morgan sjient a million dollars in ten years upon her orchitis ami exotics. Jay Gould anil John P. Iloey aro two royal jvitrons of tho floral world in tho same direction. There are many notable collections around Now York city. Jny Gould's summer home at Irvington is probably the most expensive, if it is not tho handsomest, lie has one newly discovered orchid tlmt is valued at iS.OOO. Charles A. Dana owns a garden at Glen Covo which, to my'eve, is as near an approach to |>erfoetioii ns human skill can produce. Mrs. S. L. M. Barlow, a neighbor of Mr. Dana's, has a magnificent establishment ill this nspect. A grnjH'ry there is a feature of the place. It is so thick anil luxuriant as to almost form a perfect shelter against wind and rain. Martin 1!. Brown, the public printer, has a garden uiul conservatory at Roekawny which arc extremely lieautiful. Tho Yonkers residence of the late Samuel J. Tilden is another superb s|>eeinien of tho florist's art. It is not kept lip as it was during tho lifetiino of tho owner, but even todny it ranks with tho highest. Ex-Mayor William 11. Grace has niado his proiH'rty at Great Neck, Long Island, into a very beautiful sjHit., but has deix'ndod more upon lumlscaiie gardening and the mossing of plants rather than upon floral display, Vice President Levi P. Morton has 11 superb place at Ilhinebeek. Its prior owner, William Kelly, was a ¡wrfeot monomaniac ujion horticulture, nnd devoted a good portion of his life and fortune to make tho rough farm into an earthly paradise. lie moro than sui'CiHjtled in this endeavor, so that when Morton purchased tho pro|>erty ho found himself in possession of tho most lieautiful place in that part of tho state, Tho estate knowu after George Ijiw and John J. Cisco, on Staten Island, is another charming sample of horticultural science. A very notable display of floriculture is found at John H. Star-in's Glen Island. Not only are tho flowers of tho highest lieauty and the greatest variety, but tlio palms, ferns, cyciuls and other exotics make up ono of the noblest collections in the United States. Of tho suburbs of Now York many are notable for their ugliness and utter ubscnco of taste, while others aro extremely beautiful. Those in which floral and horticultural art have been largely employed aro, in the order of their lieauty, Irvington, Khinebeck, Washington Heights, Orange, Greenwich, Montclair and Itockaivay. Tho taste and tendency toward floral art aro largely 011 tho increase, aud promise many accessions to the now profession of tho art florist. Kales-Curt«. A COFFI K I'LANThii'S SAT.

If yoa are familiar with the geography of India, you are aware that Mysore Is blessed with a delightful climate, something which cannot truthfully be aaid of many other portions of that great and rapidly progressing country. I experienced hotter weather in Halt Lake City, sin«» coming to this country, than I have ever known In Mysore during the entire period of my nri-denco." in the corra rntu>. "Are you a coffee planterP was inquired. "That has been my business for many years," replied Mr. Anderson, igniting soma sort of a long, lanky looking roll of tobacoo, which bòro unmistakable evidence of heathen birth. "I will endeavor briefly to give yoa some sort of an idea of what it means to be a coffee planter in India. In the first place, you must understand that the refreshing rains which water the vegetation of this country overy fow «lays are unknown in India for months together. Drought I* the-grout enemy with which all agriculturist* are forced to contend. This atmospheric condition is tho greatest obstacle with which we havo to battle, and it has made India the most prolific country in the world in th* matter of invonting and perfecting all sorta of irrigating processes. ¿1 that one particular, at least, we easily lead all other civilised countries today. "Coffee plants, or trees, as tbey may very properly bo termed, are planted five feet apart, In each direction. Everything ha* to bo dono by hand. There Is no such thing ns labor saving machinery known in connection with tho business Its use wonld be impossible. The. tops of the ooffee shruha ara cut out to fofce them to shoot out horizontally, instead of jnto the air. But the coiTee bushes on a plantation are not the only adjunct of tho business which require* cultivation. "On account of the drought and the torrid suns, overy inch of tho plantation must be fully protected by shade trees. Where this is not done, the fruit shrivels up and becomes worthless without ripening. Experience ha* taught us in Inuia tlmt the only really desirable trees for/ shade purposes are the silver leafed variety I The rays of the sun seem to penetrate all others and the labor of cultivating them is wasted. We generally shad* our «xiffee plantations with part or aU of the tho eighteen or twenty varieties of fig ti'tiu* indigenous to the country. Where the** trees aro not properly located, they must be planted and cultivated. "No branches are allowed within twenty-five or thirty feet of the ground, and «m«n»l trimming and pruning of both the oofffea trees and the big trees which shade them are absolutely necessary. You can doubttaa form some idea of the Immense amount ot labor which this process entails. "Thoro Is no more beautiful sight, however, than a properly cared for coffee plantation after it has reached maturity. The green bashes in regular rows below and the equally . green trees towering above them with protecting arms, form a very pretty picture. In May tho coffeo bushes are In full bloom, the white blossoms, something after the mignonette order, causing the perspective to resemble a waving, palpitating field ot virgin snow. The picking of the berries begin* in November and continues until February. A* I havo said, all labor Is done by hand, and I regularly employ about (100 coolie* in managing my plantation. The picking proce** I* naturally a tedious ono, but labor Is cheap in India. If such were not tho case coffee would bo a luxury which few would be able to afford."lies a lajtoe red chcbby. "What does the coffeo berry resemble before it is plucked from the bush est" was asked. Mr. Anderson smiled. "I fear you would have some difficulty fai recognizing It at that stage of the proceedings," he replied "In «»lor it is a brilliant red, looking very much like a large ripa cherry. The berries of which the beverage is made aro, in reality, the stone of the fruit. Tho pulpy substance by which they are surrounded is sweet in taste, but has never been utilized for any purpose. At one time a sort of liquor was manufactured from it, bat It failod to win its way into puhlio favor. After tasting it, you would not be surprised that such was the case. Two coffee belile* aro contained In each of these cherries, or fruit bulbs. After being plucked from tba bushes,' the fruit Is phurai in vats and a process of fermentation takes place which separates tho pulp from the berry . The latter Is ' ìeu subjected to more mechanical devioe*, which removes the remaining film. When tho product reaches the coast, a sort of scouring process Is undergone which place* it in tho condition for market—a condition with which you are familiar." "What is the average yield of a cotte» bush!" "Ono pound of the prepared berry Isa verj fair average (ter bush. The yield more oftsd falls under that figure than goes above it." "Do you export your own produetf" "Entirely. I bave no dealings with middla men. After a quarter of a century of toc perience, 1 pronounce that as by all «Ms tba most profitable plan to pursue." "Is the society of Mysore desirable!" "The best in tlio world," was the emphatic reply. "India escapes the adverse sodai influences with which moat countries are affile t«xl.
