COFFEE CULTIVATION. The eitraordinary impetus given to tea cultivation in India and Cevlou seems to have been taken for granted by a great, manv people as meaning the I»ssing of coffee." 1a af-Jisease. says the Indian Plan lers Gazette, was the ciuse of coffee cultivation being abandoned in Ceylon but that fact in itself must not be taken to mean that every other coffee- growing country is also likely to' abandon that crop. The coffee plant is not, it is true, quite as hardy as the tea-plant; yet it is cultivated as a main crop in many countries, notably South America and Java. Africa is also becoming a great coffee-growing Doujntry, while in India we have this industry pursued with much profit in the South. The people of ^.merica—North and South—are coffee drinkers the] people of the United States, are, however, now being educated in acquiring a taste for Indian and Ceylon teas, but it may be safe I to hazard the prediction that, however popu- lar the consumption of Indian and Ceylon teas may become in the near future, tbt're will always j be a large percentage of coffee-dritikers in the world. It is well to bear this fact in mind and that there will always be a large market for coffee— of good quality. Where tea will grow, there coffee will grow. Southern India, especially the province of Coorg, :)ffers exceptional facilities for coffee cultivation. There are still available vast tracts of splendid coffee land in Coorg and the Nilgirie-Wynaad, which might, with advantage be taken up, for coffee is of superior quality, and finds a ready market in Europe. There are great tracts of most suitable land in Assam which could be usefully planted with a pro- spect of yielding fair profit. The planting of coffee ought not to be done at the expense of tea coffee should be an alternative cro.p in the event of tea proving a failure in any season. Coffee is a much aasier crop to grow and gather than tea, and does not require such expensive machinery.
