various herbaria and their contents. While engaged in its com- 
pilation the author asked Mr. Bentham to draw up a list of the 
principal contributors to the Kew Herbarium for use in the book. 
Mr. Bentham replied in effect that it was impossible. This answer 
caused the following paragraph to be written :— 

"Kew (Jardin Royal de). Pour les deux herbiers, celui de 
Sir W. et Sir Jos. Hooker et celui de M. Bentham, qui ont 
forme la base de l'immense herbier actuel, il n'existait pas 
de catalogues ou registres d'entree. J'ai releve sur Fepoque 
anterieure a 1856 beaucoup de details tires de 
Mus. Deless. p. 325, A. Gray, Amer. Journ. 1840, de lettres 
de M. Bentham, de Sir Joseph Hooker, et d'autres sources 
occasionelles. A dater de 1856, les R* 
informations de plus en plus precises sur " 
l'herbier, qui doit etre le plus riche d 
differentes et en especes rares, decrites par 

J'espere avoir indiqu 

les herbiers de 

botanistes connus qui s'y trouvent incorpores, mais un 
grand nombre de collections de voyageurs y sont aussi, 
sans qu'il m'ait ete possible de les passer en revue pour en 
extraire celles dont il aurait convenu de parler ici. Ce 
sont souvent des collections uniques, de voyageurs anglais, 
et celles-la sont indiquees dans les ouvrages rediges a Kew. 
Quant aux autres collections de plantes numerotees, on se 
trompera rareme'nt si l'on part de l'idee qu'elles y sont, 
meme lorsque mes documents ne m'ont pas permis de les 

Alph. de CaNDOLLE, '• La Phytographie," p. 385. 

The following list is an attempt to give an enumeration of all 
the collectors whose plants form part of the Kew herbarium, so 
far as the records themselves allow. Since the spring of 1863 a 
general register of all parcels of plants has been kept, and this 
has been the principal source of information ; in many rased, 
however, particulars of the actual collector are not s ; 
only the name of the donor; it is therefore quite p..^iUe that 
errors from this source have crept into the list, although care has 
been employed to -auini against them. 

For the eai , tely, during the private possession 

by Sir W. J. Hooker and Mr. Bent] Jceri was bo 

search the books of lists which both those botanists kept as 
accounts of their determinations and collectors" rraml 
did not carry the work very far; therefore, 1>\ the ] ,-] ,, Sir .[..>. ph 
Hooker, the whole of the correspondence of his father was gone 
over, and the botanical correspondents' letters looked up to see if 
they sent plants, or only wanted help, or supplied botanical newa. 
In this way the present list has been produced; it cannot be 
guaranteed as being complete, inasmuch as the sources of informa- 
tion are themselves incomplete. Moreover, there is no detailed 
record of the plants exchanged or presented to other herbaria, so 
that, though the collections here named were once here, they may 
have since been transferred to other possessors. 

The general scope of each collector's gatherings is indicated by 
I alitiee, nod the aggregate number of specimens, so far as can be 
i ; where the number cannot be obtained, or if incon- 
siderable, it is not specified. The dates are those when received 
at Kew. 

The alphabetical list of contributions is followed by a goo- 
graphical arrangement based on that in use in the Herbarium.

Mr. Edwin John Butler, M.B., has been appointed, on the 
recommendation of Kew, by the Secretary of State for India, 
Cryptogamic Botanist for India, to reside at Calcutta. Having 
been educated at Queen's College, Cork, Dr. Butler engaged in 
research under Dr. Marcus Hartog, the Professor of Natural 
History, from 1895 to 1898. From January 1, 1899, he obtained a 
research scholarship from the the Commissioners for the 1851 
Exhibition. With the aid of this he spent nine months in the 
laboratory of Professor Van Tieghem at the Jardin des Plantes, 
Paris, receiving also assistance from Professor Maxime Cornu. 
Subsequently he spent five months at the Laboratoire d'Enseigne- 
ment Superieure at Antibes under Dr. Poirault, and three months 
in the laboratory of Professor Oltmanns at the Univereitj of 
Freiburg i. B. Finally, he devoted the remaining months of 1900 
to work in the Jodrell Laboratory at Kew. 

Dr. Butler was permitted to spend a short that- in (Jevlon, on his 
way to India, in order to study the methods of work at the' Loyal 
us, Peradeniya, and would be considered on duty 
from the date of his arrival at Colombo.

dedicated to Major D. Prain, Superintendent of the Royal Botanic 
Garden, Calcutta.

Flora of Tropical Africa.— Part III., concluding Vol. V., edited 
by the Director, was published in December. It brings the 
portion of the work included down to Plantaginew. It is 
accompanied by the following preface : — 

The seventh volume of the Flora of Tropical Africa was com- 
pleted in 1898. The circumstances under which the work was 
resumed are stated in the preface. 

The choice of the next instalment to be taken up was mainly 

determined by the assistance I was able to secure from 

■s. Amongst these I am more especiailv indebted to 

my friend Mr. C. B. Clarke, F.R.S., who not merely undertook the 

difficult task of elaborating the Acanthacece, which occupy 

For the amended definition of the regions into which the area 
of the flora is divided reference may be made to the preface to 
the seventh volume. 

In the prefaces to the first and seventh volumes will be found 
an enumeration of the materials employed up to 1868 and of the 
most important additions to them which have reached Kew since.

The presen: volume was na^v for the press at tin U irinnim; of 
1898. The inconvenience of the delay in puMiea-ion is obvious. 
The contributors see other writers secure the priority of their 
work, while the manuscript has continually to be re-written to 
incorporate what has been published while it is waiting for the 
printer. For all this I am in no way responsible. I prepare the 
work; but over printing and publication I have not the slightest 
control. And as no less than five Government departments have 
a say in the matter, the task of getting them into line is one of 
no small difficulty. A fire which took place at the printer's in 
December of last year was a further impediment. Fortunately, 
however, most of the manuscript was recovered eventually from 

Three more volumes will complete the work as originally 
planned. Their preparation presents no inherent difficulty, btlt 
their fate lies on the lap of the gods. 

I must again record my acknowledgments of the assistance 
given me by Mr. C. H. Wright in preparing the manuscript for 
the press and in checking the proofs, and to Mr. N. E. Brown for 
working out the geographical distribution.

"Terblanz" (Famra salujna, Harv.).— Professor MacOwan, 
Government Botanist, Cape Colony, in a recent i-i .;■ , yives the 
following note on the identification of a South African timber 
known as " Terblanz " : —

Enquiries made of the forest-officers elicited no further informa- 
tion than that trees of Terblanz, or what was supposed to be

Natal Plants— A brief notice of the first part of an

Kew Palace Linden.-In the Kew Bulletin for 1891, p. 318, 
mention is made of a large linden near the gate of Kew Palace, 
under the shade of which, according to tradition, the ch 
George III. used to sit. The tree was a pollard of great size and 
beauty. The girth of the trunk at four feet from the ground was 
18 ft. 7 ins. A storm on January 27 broke off some of the 
principal limbs and left it little more than a wreck. 



Leaf Diseased 






{Exoascm deformans, Fuckel.) 
(With Plate.) 

This well-known disease is at times very destructive to peach 
foliage; loss frequently almond and apricot '--- 

attacked. Tin- popular name " leaf-curl," or simply 

reference t<> the curled and distorted appearance of the diseased 
leaves. The infected tissue thickens and is at first of a pale green 

colour; then _-s to purple or pink ; and finally 

the convex parts of such leaves become covered with a, v. in- 
delicate whitish bloom, whieh presents u velv.-tv app-aranee 
when seen through a pocket-lens. This efl'ect is caused by the 
fruit of the fungus, which bur.--- tlirmurh ; he emiele of the leaf 
thus enabling the spores to be diffused by wind, rain, insects, &c. 

The youngest shoots are also swollen and distorted by the 
parasite, mycelium is perennial in the branches and" each 
season passes into the leaf-buds, which consequently contain the 
mycelium of the fungus in their tissues when they expand. 

When once attacked a tree rarely recovers unless prompt pre- 
ventive measures are taken, but becomes more diseased as time 
goes on, owing to the spread of the mycelium present in the 

The parasite does not develop every season, at least not to any 
extent, even on trees that are known to contain 
mycelium in their tissue-. it is least abundant during those 
years when the foiia-v reaches the fully developed condition 
without a check, whereas it is m the young 

leaves are checked in their growth by a sudden chill, and the 
more so if this chill follows damp warm weather. On the other 
hand, when evidence of the growth of the fungus has been un-

sudden increase in temperature.

The disease was exceptionally abundant in the South of England

Frequently iU.- ais-'-is. - is at first confined to one or few branches 
of a nve, but it spreads quickly, the spores being washed from

Krmisriis (h'/ni nutiix is a very primitive type of the enormous 
assemblage of fungi known as Ascomyeetos, which are charac- 
terised by having the spores produced within large cells or asci. 
These asci arc produced in considerable numbers, and are usually 
imbedded in. or surrounded by a special protective structure, as 
in t nifties, morels, &e. But in the present species, the scanty 
mycelium is located between the epidermis and cuticle of the 
host-plant, and gives origin to asci which burst through the cuticle 
unaceoinpmiied by any kind of protective covering whatever. 

Prfih, iir- mrn.< »/■'.-<. — Leaf-curl is a disease which, if 
systematically and persistently attended to, can easily be kept 
in check. The mycelium of the fungus does not extend back- 
wards in a branch from the point of infection, but follows the 
voting growth, consequently all diseased branches should be cut 
out behind the point «.f infection. There should be no hesitation 
about pruning, for when a branch is once diseased it does not 
produce fruit, but 011I3 fungus spores, and these infect other 

Diseased fallen leaves should be collected and burned. 

Where the disease has been present in the preceding season the 
trees should be sprayed with dilute Bordeaux mixture just when 
the leaf-buds are expanding, to guard against infection from

(Eueommia ulmoidee, Oliv.) 

Between 1887 and 1890, from several localities on the middle 
Yangtw -Kiang river, Dr. A. Henry sent to Kew fruiting speci- 
mens of a peculiar Chinese plant, with the statement that its 
bark is a mosr valued medicine in China, where it is named 
" Tu-chung," and that the tree is cultivated for it. " I have never 
seen it wild," he adds, u l)iit I was informed it occurs so in Fang and 
other districts to the north." Fan- is the name of a region near

The interest to us lies not so much in this as in his indication 
of the presence in the tissues of gutta percha. The discovery he 
made known in the following words : — 

"The most singular feature about the plant is the extraordinary 
abundance of an elastic gum in all 1 - - see pting

word), the leaves and petioles, and pericarp ; any of these, snapped 
across, ami tlm parts drawn asunder, exhibit the silvery sheen of 
innumerable threads of this gum." 

His account continues : " The morphological relations and

The bark of Th i-hinu/ had attracted attention long before the 
discovery of the tree to which it belonged. The following notice 
appeared in the Kew Report for 1881, p. 47 :— 

Chinese collections of Ma tori:. Mediea often contain specimens ot 
a drug consisting of blackened fragments of bark and small pieces 
of twigs. These when broke 

' ' "i can be drawn . 

Specimens have 

reached the Kew Museum from the Paris Exhibition of IS 7$ 
(with the Chinese name Tic chung\ and from the Smithsonian 
Institution, Washington. The botanical origin has been hitherto 
altogether uncertain. It seems, however, probable from a notice 
* Pierre, Director of the Botanic Gardens, Saigon 
et fieconnaissances, No. 11, Saigon), that this drug is 
the product- of I'aramrri'i ,jhi ndulijrra . This is an apocynaceous 
climber, ascending to the summits of the highest trees : it is 
common in the forests of Cochin China. Specimens which 
M.Pierre has obligingly communicated to Kew prove that the

Mons. Pierre concurred that the suggested identification with 
Parameria must be abandoned. 

Subsequently further specimens were received from the Museum

Some doubts having arisen as to the precise nature of the fungus,

of Agriculture Tape of | H . 

■ subject has been carefully discussed in the following 
paper by Mr. Massee. 3 . ^ tant (Cryptogams) in 

the Herbarium of the Royal Botanic Gardens :— 

The earliest observations relating to the presence of fun<n on

a worm in winter, and C B,rh, r,. Giard. parasitic on the larva 
of Diatrrrrt xarr],arul iz. Fab., the "moth borer,'" a moth which is 
very injurious to sugar-cane in the West Indies. (See Kew 
Biilhtin, 1892, pp. 153-178.) 

Among the earliest of strictly s-'it-niilic accounts of entomo- 
genous fungi is the one by Balsamo, an Italian, who clearly 
demonstrated thai the destrud ?e -ilk-worm disease called 
muscardine is caused by a fungus to which he gave the name 
of Botrytis i«irndnx<r. and afterwards ./hanged it to Kotn/ti* 
hussiau'v-ui honour of M. Bassi, an Italian interested in silk-worm 

In 1853, Robin, a Frenchman, produced an elaborate account, 
y illustrated, of plants— mostly fungi— parasitic on 

Up to this year, in discussing the relation between parasitic- 
fungi and their hosts, the former were looked on as the factor to 
be combated, and correctly so in the case of "muscardine" and of 
human diseases supposed to be due to fungi. However, at a later 
date the idea occurred that entomogenous fungi might possibly 
be utilised as a means of destroying those insect scourges which 
from time to time cause such devastation to our crops. The 
original inspiration of far-reaching results is often difficult to 
trace. Professor Sebert first suggested 3 the modern idea of 
utilising entomogenous fungi in the way already indicated. 
Sebert's observations were briefly as follows : A* number of 
caterpillars of AM in nllim were collected for the purpose of 
observing their development. The caterpillars were attacked by 
a fungus, their bodies becoming covered by a white mould. It 
was observed that if diseased caterpillars were placed in a tree 
along with healthy ones, the latter soon contracted the disease. 

Still more recently, Thaxter, in a beautifully illustrated mono- 
graph of the Entnmnphthnrw of the United States, informs us of 
the widespread destruction among insects caused by various 
species of fungi'" 1 . 

During the last ten years extensive experiments have been 
conducted, more e>pe ially in France and the United States, with 
the object of perfecting some method by means of which the 
destruction of noxious insects could be effected in a wholesale 
manner, and by a process so simple and inexpensive that it could 
be practised by farmers and horticulturists. The line followed in 
all instances has been the preparation of a pure culture of the 
particular fungus found most effective for the purpose required. 
Tubes or flasks of such pure cultures wen.' distributed free, or 
sold at a low price, and all the pnu ideal man had to do was to 
dissolve the contents of a tube in a sn dl ip utit; of water and 
spray a portion of the ground or tree infested with larvae or 
caterpillars : or, on the other hand, to inoculate a number of 
captive larvae or caterpillars, and when the disease manifested 
itself to libera ma among their companions in 

the field. In either case, the assumption is that the disease 
will spread front infected to healthy individuals. Theoretically 
the conception is excellent, and under certain atmospheric 
conditions the result is all that could be desired, but unfortunately 
the suitable condition.- rarely prevail. When the atmosphere is 
dry the spores or coni a .".and inoculation by 

contact takes place but slowly, whereas during an excess of 
moisture the conidia are washed into the ground and perish, 
while the larvae or caterpillars do not move about, and contact- 
inoculation is arrested. During calm, damp weather the results 
are, as already stated, satisfactory. 

In France the most destructive insect pest is the larva of the 
common cockchafer — Mdol-tuth'i ru/yuris, Linn. — known as le 
ver blanc, and the fungus utilised for its destruction is Isaria 
densa, Fries. 

In the United States the " chinch bug " — Missus leucopterus, 
Say — is very destructive to cereals. The fungus used for its 
destruction is S/nu-ot ri<],u ,,, ijtnljulifrrum, Speg., and, after the 
expenditure of a considerable amount of time and money, 
Professor Duggar, of the Cornell Agricultural Experiment 
Station, has expressed his opinion that, although en 
certain amount of good at times, the outcome is not sufficiently 
efficient to be of any practical value. 

A far greater measure of success appears to have attended the 
attempt to exterminate the devastating hordes of locusts, more 
especially the red-winged locust— A rritlium ,>urpu rif rum, 
Walk.— in South Africa, by means of a fungous parasite. 

The fungus was first observed, and its significance realised in 
IS'M',, l,y Mr. A. \V. Cooper, of Richmond. Xatal, who demon- 
strated that it could be readily cultivated, that it proved fatal in 
its effects on locusts, and that it was verv contagious. (Agri- 
cultural JnUrujlJ, ('<>,,<• of (run,/ lln,,r, viii.. j <S%, pp. :}30-;',;U.) 

Mr. Cooper afterwards continued his investigations on the 
locust fungus in the Cape of Good Hope Colonial Bacteriological 
Institute, being aided by Dr. Black of that Institution, with the 
result that pure cultures were produced in large quantities, and 
tubes containing a small amount of the fungus were sold to 
farmers at sixpence each. In the report of the above-mentioned 
Institute for 1898, Dr. Edington, the Director, gives a fuller 
account of the fungus, accompanied by extracts from persons 
who had proved its efficacy on a large scale. The method of its 
;i is so simple that the natives can use it with benefit. 
gton thinks the fungus probably belongs to the Ento- 
innhhtltorcce, but his very clear description ami figures show 
conclusively that the fungus is a species of Mucor'. Up to the 
present, however, the fungus has been distributed as M the locust 
fungus," and no scientific name has been used. 

Quite recently Mr. C. P. Lounsburg, Government Entomologist 
Cape of Good Hope, addressed a letter to Kew, asking for a correct 
determination of the fungus, which, on account of its proved 
uriliry ;is i iestn/ver of locusts, it was presumed might also be of 
value m destroying fruit-tree .■■at.-rpillars. In the meantime 
Mr. 1). Mr.Mpiue, Government Vegetable Pathologist of Victoria' 
had announced 8 that the Cape locust fungus was Mumr ,■<!<•<•- 
"" -"^ F . !V >- Hence a cir - t d.-r. i initiation ol the funiriis he.anm 
destructive to fruit. 

Six tubes containing the "locust fungus'' two from Vital 
S T f l\ fr ° m °F e Col ,° ny ' accom P^ied the letter from 
Mr. Lounsburg, and, on cultivation, proved to be pure cultures 

of one and the same fungus — a species of Mucor, Spores 
obtained from this material were sown on sterilized bread paste, 
pineapple, and uninjured grapes respectively, and in each 
instance the matrix was completely «-i>\ ••!■. <1 with a dense snow- 
white mycelium within 24 hours. Six hours later the mycelium 
assumed a greyish tint, which microscopic examination showed 
to be due to the presence of myriads of globose sporangia of a pale 
grey colour, the mycelium remaining pure white. Forty hours 
from the sowing of the spores, the entire mass of mycelium was 
dark grey to the naked eye ; microscopic examination showed 
this appearance to be due to the innumerable mature black 
sporangia, the mycelium still remaining colourless, or ai most 
here and there tinged with amber. The temperature ranged 
from 70° to 75° F. 

The sporangia are globose and black at maturity, and the 
surface is frosted with a very delicate layer of lime crystals. 
The size varies considerably, depending on the substance on 
which the fungus is grown, but the average diameter is 
about 80 p, although in many instances more than double that 
size is attained. The wall of the sporangium is pale steel-grey 
when seen by transmitted light. The large globose or broadly 
obovate columella is colourless. The spores are colourless, 
elliptical, and average 5-6 x 3-5-4 /*. 

The sporangia are produced in a racemose or corymbose 
manner on short branchlets, which are often furnished with a 
transverse septum near the point of origin from the main branch, 
and are always immersed in the loose weft of superficial 
mycelium, contrary to what occurs in other species of Mucor, 
where the sporangia are elevated on elongati - igi - 

The vegetative mycelium immersed in the matrix is very 
abundant, d--: ■ thickest portions varying from 

10-25 /jl in diameter — and expanding at intervals into irregular 
swellings containing reserve material. The thicker branches of 
immersed mycelium often contain large masses of a highly 
refractive substance in their interior. Septa are abundant in the 
mycelium ii - \. and are by no means rare in 

the aerial portions. 

In addition to the nutritive media already enumerated, the 
fungus grew readily on gelatine containing a decoction of plum 
juice, in water containing a 10 per cent, solution of cane sugar, 
and in a sterilized decoct i" - _ table matter. 

These experiments prove that the fungus is by no means 
circumscribed in its choice of a matrix, and consequently it 
would be uii I _re of the possibilities 

of the fungus, to spray its spores on fruit trees, as those spores, 
carried to the ground in the solution, would probably be able to 
develope as a saprophyte on decaying vegetable matter, and the 
resulting spores would be very likely to attack the partly 
matured fruit. 

It remains to state that the fungus attacks and kills cockroaches 

(pute as quickly as it does locusts. An exotic species— Prri^tnneta 

Austruhtsi<r, abundant in the warm houses in Kew Gardens — was 

-j town specimens were sprinkled 

with water containing the spores of the fungus in suspension, and 


fed with bread mixed with mycelium and spores. Twelve hours 
afterwards the cockroaches were only just able to crawl slowly; 
one of the number that was allowed to remain undisturbed died 
shortly afterwards, and within two days was covered with a dense 
white myceli o a sporangia. 

The • remaining three enfeebled specimens were placed along 
with a dozen newly captured full-grown specimens, who, as whs 
expected, promptly ate up their weakly companions. Within 
24 hours the whole of the cannibals were dead and becoming 
covered with the Mucor. 

In the letter referred to it is stated that there is a suspicion that 
the Natal locust fungus of to-day is not the same as the species 
discovered by Cooper. 

The following may explain this suspicion. A fungus called 
Ktitnmnnhihnrn (i ryfli, Fres., has long been known as a parasite 
on various species of crickets and locusts. Some years ago 
specimen- of a i'n n_ - - • i v.-iv sent 

to the British Museum, ami it was suggested by Miss A. L. Smith 
in Science <7oW/>, June. 1S0">, that the fungus was an Entomoph- 
thnra. Some months ago Mr. .7. H.Hart, Superintendent of the 
i.-n. Trinidad, sent to Kew for determination a culture 
said to have heen prepared from an example of the " locust fungus " 
received from the Cape Bacteriological Institution. This example 
was not a pure culture, but certainly included Entoiwyhiimni 
Grylli, Fres. 

It is quite possible that E. (JryUi does occur as a parasite on 
the South African locust, ami that it may have found its way 
into certain of the cidt train that it is not

in the "locust fungus 1 ' prepared at the Cape.

Its deleterious properties appear to have been known locally for 
some time, but only recently to have attracted more general

I have seen no cases myself, and am indebted to Veterinary 
Lieutenant Sawyer for the symptoms and post-mortem appearances. 
He states : " In the majority of cases progress is rapid ; often the 
- noticed is the animal halts, trembles for a few seconds, 
and drops dead. In cases less severe the animal is tympanitic, 
lies down, groans with pain, there is a gre< ■

I am given to understand samples of the plants in question 
have been submitted for your inspection, further that you have 

had them examined and classified by ;ut expert : therefore any 
attempt on my part to presume n> attempt a description of the 
plants is tinneeessary. and would be out of p];te<\ I am lolil there 
are three varieties — two poisonous, the third, although of the 
same family, not dangerous. The leaves of the latter are white 
on the underside. They grow on the northern slopes of the 
Magaliesberg, the plants appearing prior to the grass, and are 
therefore more attractive to the cattle than would be the case 
latei in the season. Wherever the wild Syringa flourishes these 
])lants are abundant. 

Stock owners state : Cattle reared locally will not touch the 
plants, but those brought from other districts readily partake of 

From the foregoing statement it would appear there are no 
premonitory symptoms, consequently no treatment. 

Avoid the northern slopes for grazing purposes: when this is 
done the trouble ceases. 

Conductor Cartwright states : If the oxen are allowed to drink 
freely prior to going to the grazing ground where these plants 
grow no bad results follow if the cattle partake of them. This 
may be so, but it seems unworthy of credence, inasmuch as cattle 
do not drink much — if at all — in the early morning. I know of 
no compulsory method to indiiee them to change rheir habits. 

•eticulum, and omasum intensely 
inflamed and easily detached. Rumen contained a quantity of the 
leaves of the plants.

here is no change in the secretions, or evidence 
of any deviation of health, death being sudden, I am of opinion 
the poison must be absorbed during the primary process of diges- 
tion; its action is central, insensibility is produced, and death 
take- pltce by coma.

Poisonous Herb (Chailletia cymosa, Hk.). 

By Saturday's post I forwarded to your Department a small 
parcel of a poisonous herb which grows abundantly in this 
I is very fatal to cattle and any kind of ruminant. It 
seems only to be dangerous at this time of the year, just after the 
young shoots come out of the ground and cattle are ravenous af tet- 
any green herbage. I have just lost eleven head of cattle and mv 
nei-hi„, ur seven. It is the first season I have been on the place, 
and had not been warned of its whereabouts, so for safety sake 
had my cattle herded near the homestead, and unfortunately kept 
them on the only patch of poison on the farm. The first intima- 
tion of it I had was a cow making a few turns and dropping dead, 
and all the others died within 4b hours, or three days after .■■athur 
the poison. Some, as I h t\. said, drop 1 id v. 1 i < si^n of 
being sick; others have fits, as with strychnine: in most eases 
their legs become paralyzed and they won't walk, and the least 
excitement kills them. I may ale r death the 

inner coat of the stomach peels off as if it had been boiled, and 
the animal does not blowup until aim- death, when it does to 
a great extent,

Maxime CORNU.— The death of this distinguished botanist has 
robbed Kew of a friend and correspondent of long standing. The 
Jardin des Plantes at Paris is part of a much larger organisation, 
the Musriin, ffffist„i t y XafurrUr. The horticultural side of it is 
the national horanieal garden of France, and its head occupies the 
office in the larger establishment of Professeur </>< Culture, 
Between Cornu and his predecessors the most intimate relations 
had long subsisted with Kew. His deai'n. which took place at 
Paris on April 3, at the early age of 57, severed prematurely a 
personal tie which had contributed greatly to the scientific 
; both institutions. 

Baillon, Naudin, de Vilmorin and Franchet : all men in the fore- 
most iank, whom their fellow-workers in England counted as 
friends; and now the untimely and unexpected 
death of Maxime Cornu has come upon many of us— and not least 
at Kew— as a personal grief. I saw him laM autumn in l'ari> full 
of the business of congresses into which he was throwing 
himself with irrepressible vivacity and energy. He had often 
complained of ill health, but nothing in his appearance had 
ever suggested to me ground for serious anxiety. I had hoped to 
induce lam to pay us a visit this year. I could not go to his 
funeral. Xothing remains but the sad satisfaction of writing 
these lines to his memory. 

Cornu was born July 16, 1843, at Orleans. The ability which 
he displayed in his schooldays seeme 1 at ' - 

by studies on the literary side. But under the influence of his 
father and of his distinguished brother, Alfred Cornu, he devoted 
himself to mathematics, and wil - H 

published in the X<> ><v •//->• Aimali-s <h Mat},/' ,■•>■.,<,, , j, a p, ,.„ ,,,> 
geometrical subjects. In my judgment there could be no better 


preparation for a scientific career. Mathematics, as they are 
taught in France, habit u it. the mind to tin grasp < 1 g- m ra i < 1 • as 
and accustom it to rise from isolated facts to large generalisations. 
The descriptive side of science, it cannot be doubted, has a 
cramping influence, ami it is the fate of too many of those who 
devote themselves to it to be unable "to see the wood for the 
trees." Cornu's mathematical studies, at any rate, decided him 
for a scientific career, and at the " Fcole normale superieure " he 
eventually fixed on botany. He was for a time assistant to 
Duchartre. professor at the Sorbonne, a man remarkable in many 
ways, hut possessing in a more rhan ordinary degree the power of 
presenting with French lucidity the results of current research, 
not forgetting those of _Knglish workers. While with Duchartre, 
Cornu produced in lSTil as his doctoral thesis. Iris well-known 
memoir on the S<(jtr'>lr</ni«rr«; to which the Academic des 
Sciences awarded the I )esma/.ieivs prize. From the Sorbonne he 
moved to the Museum as aide naturaliste to Brongniart, whose 
daughter he afterwards married. Brongniart brought down to 
our own day the best traditions of that illustrious school of 
French botanists whose philosophic insight into the principles of 
plant morphology and taxonomy has probably never been rivalled. 
and certainly not surpassed. 

Under Brongniart, Cornu devoted himself to mycology. He 
published in a comparatively brief period a profusion of papers, in 
which one is at a loss whether to admire most the untiring 
industry, the sagacity, or the wide range of his work. Every- 
thing pointed to his taking a foremost place in this branch of 
botany. But no one can be a myeoh _ - r without being drawn 
into the study of plant diseases, in which fungi play so large a 
part. Vegei ly attracted Cornu. and he did 

much excellent work in it. We owe to him the principle, now 
so familiar as to seem almost obvious, of preventive treatment by 
the careful destruction by burning of the drhri* of plants which 
may harbour resting-spores. 

In 1868 a mysterious disease made its appearance amongst the 
vines in the South of France. Plain hon. the professor of botany 
at Mmitpellier (who owed his earlv training to k'rwl discovered 
the cause in an insect — I'lujlln.r* ■,■// ni*t<i)ri.r— introduced from 
the New World. The injury which this ultimately inflicted on 
' France has been compared, and 
probably with justice, to that of the most devastating of wars. 
That France' has risen triumphant abov. this, as above so man v 
other disasters, is but one example of the indomitable courage of 
its people. Cornu, from his official position and special qualifica- 
tions was necessarily at <mce absorbed in tin task -hopeless as it 
seemed at first—of combating the scourge. For at least ten years, 
from 1872 onwards, he was occupied in little else. It is needless 
to enumerate the prominent positions in various inquiries which 
he filled : the most important was that of '•Secretaire de la com- 
mission academique du Phylloxera." His memoir on the whole 
subject published by the Academy has always seemed to me, for 
completeness and finish, a model of what such a research ought 


»f common friends, diverted him I'm in tin- sci. m ilio work which 
ve all expected of him, and which his really brilliant powers 
•mitled us to expect. 
At the moment that Cornu entered on his new duties. Immirt 

■iad done so much — colonial enterprise. Cornu's ambition— and 

resources of the Jardin des Plantes in the work, much on the 

iivilising agency. To reduce Dom tribes to

if passion. What he accomplished, both for the French colonies 
md for the enrichment of the gardens oi' his own country, with 
resources more limited than we have at our disposal in Kmdand. 
is to me surprising. But, unhappily, at the niomeni when he had 
ittained some measure of success his forces failed him, and he 
was not allowed to see his work fully crowm-d withaccomplishmenT. 
Cornu was the most loyal of Frenchmen. Had he been less so, 
he would not have sacrificed to the interests of France the career 

• sacrifice he made was not fully appreciated. Many 
of us have wondered that a man who had done so much had never 
been admitted to the Institute. But that recognition could not 
have been long delayed, and this adds another regret to his 
untimely death.

The following note accompanied the specimens. " Some months 
ago all the shrubs in a jungly bit of the garden at the foot of a 
large Ficus duhia beiran to .Lie. - long roots 

of the Ficus did the same. At first I thought some weed-killer 
had been «u ^increased, 

every plant I oking as if acid or boir 

had been thrown upon it. All kinds of Dicotyledonous sliruos 
and herbs, rattans, dracaenas, and even some dieifenbachias turned 
black and rotted. At last the thing developed on the lig roots. 
and on the collar and roots of all the trees and shrubs around, 
and appears to be a deadly fungus."

Retirement of Curator- It will be a matter of genuine regret to 
all acquainted with Kew that Mr. (ieor^e Nicholson, F.L.S., was 
compelled by impaired health to retire on July 31 from the post 
of Curator of the Royal Botanic Gardens. Mr. Nicholson entered 
the Curator's office on February 15. 1X73. after a public competi- 
tion. In 1886, on the retirement of the preceding Curator, the 
late Mr. John Smith, Mr. Nicholson was appointed by the Treasury 
to succeed him. 

Mr. Nicholson's services to Kew are well known. To him in 
-reat measure is due the present efficient condition of the Arbo- 
retum. The Hand list of Tree* and Shrubs ynun, in A rborrtum 
was prepared by him, and is universally accepted as a standard 
snenclature. Kew still hopes to retain the 
benefit of Mr. Nicholson's botanical experience now that he has 
been relieved from the pressure of administrative duties. 

New Curator— The First Commissioner has filled the vacancy 
created by M i ent of the 

Assistant ('a \V..h.,ii. ' This officer emo-ed tin- 

service of Kew in 1879 as Foreman. In 1886 he was raised to the 
position of Assistant Curator, in charge of the indoor cultivation : 
this, as ( 'urator. he will still retain. Mr. W. J. Bean, the Assistant 
Curator in charge of the Arboretum, will now take the general 
charge of the grounds and of the ligneous collections. 

Hon. David Carnegie.— This gentleman, to whom Kew is indebted 
for a email collection of dried plants, gathered on his exploring 
expedition across the unknown desert of North-w. -• An-^tra ia in 
ppointed Assistant Resident of the Middle Niger in 
1899. He there soon made a reputation as a leader and organiser, 
and gained the respect and devotion of the natives. Unfortunately 
this promising life was cut short in an encounter with a refractory 
tribe. He was leading a small party when he was struck by a 
poisoned arrow in the thigh, and died 15 minutes later, on 
November 27, 1900. His behaviour in this affair so inspired his 
followers with courage that they secured ids body and fought 
their way back through a most difficult country. Mr. Carnegie 
was the youngest son of the Ear! ol Somln-sk, and was born in

The flowers, which are pea-like and bright orange-yellow, are pro-

Their duration is but short, for they wither for the most part on

ring at the very base. At this time the true peduncle begins to

Races in Cultivation. 

The many different forms of 
admit of a rough classification ii 
varieties. In the one the stems are erect, in the other prostrate, 
hut ascending at the tips. 

Botanists have seized on this difference as a means of classifying 
the forms, and have applied the names — inappropriate to an 
Amt-rican plant— of africana and indica. The former name 
embraces the running, the latter the bunched forms.* 

Typical anion if running forms is that commonly grown in 
Virginia ; its spreading branches may have a length of two feet, 
or even more, and pods are borne on them almost to the tip. The 
" Spanish " pea-nut " is an extreme of the other type, with several 
erect stems and the pods crowded at the base — a condition imposed 
on the plant by the impossibility of thrusting nuts from upper 
flowers into the soil. 

Between these two extremes fall the many forms dispersed over 
the world ; we posses- but little information leading to a determi- 
nation of their relative merits. 

Upwards of three quarters of the nuts grown in the United 
States are sold in the streets for eating. Those most in demand 
account of the relatively small percentage 
i they contain. Virginia produces two forms ; one, as 
described, " running," the other "bunched." The pods of both 
kinds are large and white. 

Tennessee grows two forms—" white " and " red," so-called 
from the colour of the seed-coats. The former is a running variety

agreeable to the taste, is more or less erect in habit, and favoured 
as a forage crop. 

North Carolina grows a form resembling the African plant in 
habit, with heavier and smaller pods than those of Virginia ; and 
Georgia produces a red-seeded form, bunched, and with three or 
four seeds to the pods. 

The so-cal !," grown in the United States, is 

a bunched form, alike in favour for forage and for confectioners' 
purposes on account of the sweetness of its seeds. 

Costa Rica produces the form named earlier, whose abnormally- 
long pods contain four or five seeds ; in the Argentine one with 
orange-yellow husks is common. 

African forms, despite the application of the name africana to 

the bunched group, are for the most part semi-prostrate. On the 

coast two forms - a U , ? their na nes from the

1870, p. 93:— "It is possible thai the farther south the nut is grown 
the more oil will be developed in the seed. The Algerian growth 
furnishes 25 to 27 per cent. The quantity of oil in the Virginian 
growth is less than that of Algiers." The last is in the new 
edition of Sender's Tropische Agrikuttur, ii, 1899 [dated 1900], 
p. 457, where we read : — " Like castor-oil seeds, ground-nuts are 
richer in oil the more tropical the climate under which they are 
cultivated. West African nuts from near the equator contain 
50-55 per cent, of nil. North American only 2 5 -"J 7 per cent., and 
at times only 20 per cent," Despite the important bearing of 
such a generalisation, we have been unable to find trustworthy 
analyses which can be produced in suppoi't of it. Those which 
have been given above emphasise racial differences rather than 
variations due to the available solar energy. The contention is, 
however, plausible enough, and may be illustrated by bringing 
forward the relative poorness in oil which makes nuts from 
! the more northern States to be preferred for eating 
over those from Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, &c. 

Proceeding to the effect of the soil upon the plant, there is 
indication that the oil-contents of the seed fall short in poor soil. 
Subba Kao { liallotin, Dept. Land Records and Agric, Madras, 1893, 
p. 280) says the seeds from soil new to the crop are richer than those 
from village sites, and from red sandy loams richer than those from 
clays. Seed produced on unirrigated land is richer in oil than 
that produced under irrigation. 

We have to notice next that the pods take upon them the 
colour of the earth in which they are buried ; red earths produce 
red pods, and the first ripe pods of a crop are deeper in colour at 
harvest from having remained longest under ground. There is a 
set among cultivators and mere I : , rk-coloured 

j.od- w hich make- such unwelcome. Moreover, in Indiaseed grown 
on certain dark soils (" pottai-mannu " soils) is rejected for sowing 
t Subba Kao. in lU'l/eti,,. In,,/. Land Record* and Agrie., Madras, 
p. 263). Want of lime causes empty pods. Rich nitrogenous 
manures promote growth of the vegetative parts, but, so it is said. 
do not stimulate seed formation. 

Soft earth is desired for the burying of the seed, and the 
practice of earthing-up, done we are told as often as 1-7 times in 
Spain, is an aid to this end. On hard soils the pods die whenever 
they fail to penetrate the surface. 

The vigour, yield and colour of the seed are thus aileeted by 
the soil, and it is further said that an erect habit is at times 
produced by the soil (Watt. Agrir. Ledger. 1893, No. 15, p. 9). 
The oil-contents of the seed appear to he increased or 
according to the amount of heat available to the plant, but the 

unqualified statement. 


Chief and foremost amount the use- to which this plant is put 
must be placed its yield of oil. The trade between the tropics 
and Europe, by which India and Africa pour the seeds they 
produce into modern oil mills in France, (rermany. England. &c. 

is of recent growth. Older than it is the primitive method by 
which the negroes both of Africa and America extract a portion 
of the oil for their service. 

The oil, which closely resembles olive oil, replaces it largely in 
Europe, and is nsed as salad oil, also in soap-making, burning, 
dyeing, tanning, and cloth-cleaning. It enters into such salves 
as cold-civam, pomades, &c. As an oil for lubricating it has some 
use, and it forms a very important ingredient in the manufacture 
of oleomargarine. Italso form- ma 1 n I h-r.uit of olive and almond 
oils, and is in its burn adulterated with poppy, sesamum, and 

In India the sweet oil of the bazaars is a mixture of this with 
safllmver and sesamum oils, the seeds being pressed together 
(Dymock, Materia Mvf/rrt, India, ed. 2, p. 246). Arachis oil 
finds a further use as an adulterant of "ghi," or clarified butter, 
and is recognised as oifieinal in the Indian Pharmacopoeia replacing 

Almost wherever grown, a portion of the produce is converted 
into oil for local use. In Java it has long served as an oil for 
o g, and for a less period in India. It burns with a clear 
■ ._ ■•!• than olive nil in the propor- 
tion of 9^ hours to 8 hours per oz., but gives less light. 

Japan and China produce a small quantity of oil, which, how- 
ever, hardly finds its way into the European market, as in a small 
measure does that from India. In China a medicinal value is 
attributed to it (Debeaux, .S*//,- A/ v h,,y»ma,- rl™ C/iiti»is. L'ari.s, 
18o. r >, p. 08). 

The use of the seed as a food is very extensive. It may be 
eaten when unripe, and has then, when cooked, the flavour of 
kidney beans. When ripe, it is too oily to be more than an adjunct 
to the diet, a i ..,'/,. /,/,.,., ,'„„ 7 „. j . p. Ml) 

narrates how a balanced food is obtained by the negroes bv adding 
to it such sta . a nas. Roasted in the shell it is 

sold in immense quantities in the streets of the cities and towns 
of Eastern North America. 

These seeds in Europe have served as adulterants for coffee, 
cocoa, and spices. For adulterating coffee they are pressed in 
mould- and passed as coffee beans ( Vo-1. '/>,Y /,-/. hf !,/.<(> „

"Austrian coffee" is the name by which this counterfeit product

this use. Sweetmeats are made from them to a small extent. 

The seeds ground finely after being roasted make a butter-like 
mass, sold as ■• Pea-nut butter " in the United States (Aurirnltural

is made use of in Asia to a small extent, and on a larger scale in 
the Eastern United States. Here, too, after the harvest is gathered 
hogs are turned on to the land, and grub up pods which have 
not been collected. 

As a green manure for the tropics Arachis has been suggested, 
for it adds when ploughed in, not only the materials drawn 
directly from the soil, but also the other food stuffs taken from the 
tii 1 . including the nitrogen which the root tubercles acquire. 

Chemistry of the Seed. 

Analyses of the seed shew, as already stated, a richness in oil 
which varies considerably. This oil is a non-drying oil, becoming 
turbid at + 3° C, and congealing at - 3° C. It consists of the 
glycerides of four fatty acids, viz. : — olein, arachin, hypogsein, 

The similarity of ground-nut oil to olive oil is apparent when 
we remember that the main constituents of both are olein and 

Starch is present to a small amount. 

Albuminoid matter is more abundant, and cane sugar has been 
detected (Schulze & Frankfurt in Z>it.<rhr. tii r {J,i/,<i'>/n</. Cl,euiie, 
1895, p. 511.) 

Oils, starch, and albuminoids when found in seeds are reserves 
for the use of the young plant and are absorbed in germination. 
Immediately growth starts absorption of these products com- 
mences, and the chemistry of the seed is considerably altered. 
In the place of the fats appear fch fatty acids and 

glycerine. Obviously oil extracted at this juncture will not have 
that freedom from taste in which should lie its real value. 

We cannot record observations made directly on Arwhis 
hypogcea, but analogy indicates that oleic, arachic, hypoxic, 
and palmitic acids appear in the seed when germination has 

The same acidifying process is produced by fungi, and as these 
readily attack the seed rancidity is developed when they are 

It is well known that seeds of many plants cannot be induced 
to germinate until they have passed a certain period of q 
This is not so with Atrichia Jvjpo<i<i<i. At any time a small 
amount of moisture is sufficient to start the process ; so readily is 
it induced that occasionally in India germination starts before the 
crop is dug. Germination started and then checked results in the 
death of the seed. Such a dead and partly germinated seed 
contains rancid oil. 

A similar amount of moisture will favour the growth of moulds 
—Eurotium, Pcirilliunt, &c— and these finding entrance into 
the tissues of the seeds by bruised places add to the acidity. 
Unfortunately Indian nuts shelled by being beaten and thus 

bruised, shipped or i'wn >!<nv4 damp, l.ecome imihm> [ ; and experts 
maintain that they can disnncruUh oil-cake made from this source 
by the abundance of fungal threads in it. 

Ground-nut seeds do not require much moisture to stimulate 
growth, though in the complete process of germination they absorb 
almost their own weight (Bogdanow, see Just's Bot. Jahres- 
Iffirlif, 1X.S7. \„ p. •JoTi: Uirhi 'I'm-- m>! conspicuously deter it 
(Pauchon in Ann. Sri. Hat., ser. 6. x., p. 98). 

The great precautions necessary to prevent growth in -rods 
reserved for sowing will be mentioned under the head of cultiva- 
tion. There is reason why tin ■ same precautions should not be 
neglected in the caee of see 1 destined for the oil-mill.

Clusius {Kariorum Plcmtaran, Hittoria, ii., p. 79, 1601) 
informs us that the slavers took as food for their captives 
on the voyage from the Guinea Coast to Lisbon, roots of the 
sweet potato, which is an American plant, "besides certain 
nuts " ; and these nuts Sir Hans Sloane {The Natural History of 
Jaunifii, i., p. 184, London, 1707) identities as fruits of Arachis. 
Though Clusius does not give information which puts Sloane's 
identification beyond doubt, the fact thai in die hitter's day these 
seeds were used "to feed the negroes in their voyage from Guinea 
to .Jamaica" is itself strong evidence. And though in 1707 the 
earth-nuts thus used were brought from Africa with the slaves, a 
century earlier they were evidently brought from the West Indies 
(St, Thomas, <fcc.) with the roots of the sweet potato.

from the West Indies ; later it came from the 
Guinea coast. This traffic and attempts to grow the nut in other 
more northern places helped to familiarise industrial Europe 
with it. 

Even as early as 1697 Stisser grew it in Brunswick (Fliickiger 
and Hanbury, Pharmacographia, ed. 2, London, 1879, p. 187) ; in 
1712 it had ] (see Trap. 

A'jrirnlturtst, iii., 507), and in 1723 it was in the Royal Garden at 
Montpellier, where, however, it soon died out (Heuze, Les plantes 
industri, //V,-. ii.. I'.u-i.-, LS'.a p. 130). Tenore says that in 1774 it 
was again in England ; and in 1769 Sir William Watson showed 
pods and the oil to the Royal Society, while he read a memoir on 
it, communicated to him by George Brownrigg of North Carolina 
{Phil. Trans,, lix., pp. 379-383). 

In 1787 a great quantity of seed was brought to Spain and 
Portugal, where its cultivation promised well, and it is of great 
interest to learn from Tenore, who himself experimented with it 
in Italy (Napnli, AW 1st. Limrr., i. (1.SI1), p. 31), that in 1807 
the uses of its seeds were to yield an oil for soap-making and as 
a substitute for almond oil in pharmacy, while powdered, they 
served as a substitute for cacao (£ Arachis seed mixed with 
f Cacao), or were added to flour in making bread. France was 
anxious to obtain it, and from Heuze's account — more correct than 
that of any other recent writer — the following is borrowed : — 

" In 1801, Lucien Bonaparte, then Ambassador at the Court of 
Madrid, sent seeds to M. Mechin, prefect of the department of 
Les Landes (the province to the south of Bordeaux), suggesting 
that he should try to grow it on the sandy soil of those parts. 
When the first trials had succeeded, M. Mechin printed a detailed 
account of how to cultivate it and circulated it among those who 
tag to repeat his experiments. As a result Arachis was 
widely grown on a large scale in the departments of Basses- 
1'yivurcs. , , , nl> Bouches du Rhone, Vauduse. 

Isciv. Ami,-, an-; Dnmie. Everywhere people were convinced 
that it was a reliable oil-seed, and would assuredly grow in 
Southern France. The political troubles of 1808 to 1815 stopped 
the experiments, and the cultivation of Arachis was abandoned. 
Again in 1820 to 1822, at the time when the olive-yards were in 
a large measure destroyed by frost, fresh experiments took plan-. 
ill-conceiY,o . T1( „ tumen who 

had undertaken them, in abandoning tin- enterprise, sported that 
shelling the seeds was necessary before obtaining the oil, and that 
tins was a . l!u ] 8econdlv that th wag no 

market for the oil." 

Again, the winter of 1830 wrought serious havoc in olive-yards 
(Coutance, UOhmer, Paris, 1877, p. 210), and for some time 
»lil\ ,!™ ? "• ™ 8 led the wool-carders to 

seek some, te Ground-nut oil in 1837 was 

found to serve. A Marseilles firm had put on to the i- 
experiment some four or five kilogrammes (Dumas e^Poiteau in 


AM. Se. Nat. ser. 3 xix. 
seed sent from Gambia. 
French settlements benefited first, and Gambia, where they 
possessed one, as well as Senegal sent increasing quantities to 
Marseilles year by year. Other parts of Africa commenced to 
export nuts* notably Algeria, Sierra Leone, and Angola. Pondi- 
cherrv, too, began to send shipments, and the trade thence received 
a great stimulus by the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. 

Some idea of the growth of the trade may be obtained from 
the statement that ten or twelve years after the first importation 
the output of Marseilles had reached seventv million kilogrammes 
of oil (1,377,482 cwt). Barcelona, near which, as already 
mentioned, experiments in growing Arachis had commenced in 
1787, entered into competition with Marseilles. Spain proved not 
unsuited to the crop, and thence comes the record that 700 pods 
have been obtained from a single root ; but the output of oil from 
Spain is not great. 

Another attempt o production in France took place in 1839 
and 1840, when a M. Chaise, who had been in Senegal, grew near 
Dax some five hectares (12£ acres), with results beyond his 
expectation. Still, as Naudin reports (Naudin and Mueller, 
Manual <h>. P Arrlimateur, 1887, p. 139), the cost of production 
was too great, and despite M. Chaise's big crop no further 
attempts to produce the plant in France have occurred. From 
Losoncz in Hungary a more recent successful attempt is reported 
(Just, Jahresbericht, 1878, ii., p. 478) but it is not clear that profit 
can be derived. 

The trade in ground-nuts thus remains one by which the 
tropics feed the mills of Europe. 

Genoa, Bordeaux, Nantes, Dunkirk, London, Rotterdam, 
IIuu' m-g. and tin Ha hie po its have entered into competition with 
Marseilles, and the Mozambique coast of Africa has commenced 
to export in large quantity. 

In this process of decentralization, though France still remains 
facile prtTtceps, Marseilles no longer holds the same large share 
in the commerce which fell to that port thirty years ago. Almost 
100 million kilogrammes of Arachis were imported into France 
in LS9S, chiefly in the pods, but partly d. corticated, to a value of 
over £836,000, and representing 76,900,984 kilogrammes of 
kernels. In the same year Marseilles imported Arachis to the 
amount, represented as kernels, of 27,098,100 kilogrammes. The 
proportion of tin trade which fell to Marseilles was then a trifle 
more than one-third of the total of France. 

The figures upon which the above statement is based were 
supplied to Kew by the Statistical Department of the 

Board of Trade,

Gambia, which sent 1.3,200 cwt. to Marseilles in 1837, was 
followed by Senegal in 1840 with a small shipment. The increase 
in the exports then became rapid. In 1860 Gambia exported to 
the value of £79.ol2. and Sierra Leone to £3 1.5 J 1 . : in 1870 these 
two colonies exported the one to the value of £121,329, the other 
to £95,605 ; and the trade became the most important one of this 
part of Africa, and continues to be so. 

Angola entered into competition with Gambia but heavy taxation 
checked and partly destroyed the Angolan trade (Monteiro. »,/,. 
e//.. i., p. 133, and Fiealho. up. <•//., p. 139). 

The Indian trade, owing to the length of the journey round the 
Cape, took no great dimensions until after the opening of the 
Suez Canal in 1869. Then came a rapid development, Pondi- 
cherry being the chief centre. Indigo had been a leading 
concern of this French settlement, but the natives who dealt in it 
suddenly discovered that Arachis offered a better market, and for 
a time the trade taxed the capabilities of the port to the uttermost. 
In 1SS3 the demand for storage space was so great that every 
available dwellmydiouse was rented by the merchants. In 1886

It seems that to meet the demand in Marseilles in 1898 large 
shipments were made of undecorticated nuts from Africa, and 
judged by the extensive cultivation on that coi 
that the demand may be fully met. The possibilities of the West 
Coast of Africa are not yet fully developed. W. W. A. I 
remarks (Travels in Coast Lands British E. Africa, p. 213) that 
" The soil of the coast lands is just what is required for its cultiva- 

Exact information on the subject of the trade of this side of 
Africa has hitln -vu< b«-«-n '-valuing, and in view of the evidently 
•acts from a report by 
H.M.'s Coii- a ill be of interest. 

" The ground-nut is collected by natives, by whom it is largely 
used as an article of food ; it is also sold by them in great 
(plant 'Hies to the Indian merchants or to the holders of Prazos 
{i.e., tenants), by whom it is either passed on to European firms 
on the coast or exported independently. 

** From such statistics as I have been enabled to obtain from the 
Portuguese Custom Houses on this coast it would appear that the 
bulk of the ground-nuts which find their way to Europe from 
Portuguese East Africa are shipped from the northern ports of the 
province, that is to say, from Ibo, Mozambique, Quilimane, and 
Chinde. It is evident from the figures I have received from the 
three first-named places that Quilimane is by far the most 
important of them in relation to this commodity ; but although, 
unfortunately, I have been unable to procure any precise infor- 
mation from the Custom House at Chinde, I am able to state from 
my personal knowledge of the place that the output from 
Chinde approaches that from Quilimane, its neighbouring port. 
This will be the more readily understood, perhaps, when it is 
explained that Chinde receives the entire trade of the extensive 
Zambezi valley, and, sin iclea of import received, 

not only from the Zambezi, but from the vast countries to the 
north and west, are shipped from Chinde. It will, therefore, be 
seen that the amount of ground-nuts exported from the two 
very large. Moreover, there has been established at 
Quilimane during the past year an extensive soap and oil 
manufactory, which possesses certain profitable monopolies for the 
manufacture of those two articles in the province and elsewhere. 
As these goods are m i i,-,, m ground-nuts and 

other locally produced oil seeds, it follows that a considerable'1'y is used in this way. If we were in a positio] 
the quantity of ground-nuts actually exported from On 
Chmde the number of tons used locally i^ _ 
manufactory, the amount of this produce collected in the district, 


with that shipped from the Zambezi, would doubtless reach an 
Qg total. 

" On the table which follows it will be noted that the increase 
in the exports of ground-nuts in 1898 is considerable, and this is 
the more remarkable when it is understood that the natives in the 
northern portion of the province have often great difficulty in 
reaching the coast with their produce by reason of the terror 
inspired by the marauding tribes by which the country is infested. 
I am informed that a large quantity both of rubber and ground- 
nuts is annually lost to commerce, the natives being surprised in 
the act of conveying it to the coast and put to flight, while the 
result of their labours for, it may be, many months is left rotting 
on the ground. 

"As I have previously endeavoured to explain, the ground-nuts 
are collected entirely without supervision, and in quite a hap- 
hazard way, and sold to the exporter on the coast. From what I 
have been enabled to glean very few find their way to the United 
Kingdom, the bulk going to Hamburg and Rotterdam, whilst a 
certain quantity are despatched to Marseilles."

Like the Indian trade, that of the Argentine Republic, never 
very large, has fallen since 1891 ; a table of 
Europe thence may be seen in Sender's T 
(ed. 2. ii., p. 461). 

Lastly, a word about China. China, as stated above, an early 
home of Arachis in Asia, still grows large quantities, especially in 
the Yangtze-Kian- valley. Chief of all as a port of shipment, not 
only of nuts, but of oil, is Chinkiang, at the mouth of 
and a large proportion of the exports finds its way to Hong 
Kong thence to be shipped to other countries. Shanghai, too, 
in the same region sends a considerable quantity of oil to Hong 
Kong, as also Chefoo in the north, and Pakhoi in the south. In the 
extreme north Tientsin has a large trade in nuts, but for the most

Expression of the Oil in Europe. 

The oil is expressed from the seeds in the following manner, as 
described by Dr. P. Uhlitzsch (hir liiiuhrirtxrlnifllirltm Vcr- 
s>ich«-«t,tth»wn, xli.. IS'.fJ. p. 100) :— » Whenby means of brushing 
the pods tlie unslielled nuts have been cleaned, they are broken 
between rollers ami passed on to a fan which winnows out the 
light pieces of husk. When the seeds are sufficiently broken 
they are packed into a cylinder in thin layers, each layer 
separated by a cloth of horsehair. The first pressing is but slight, 
the resulting cakes are very flat, loose, and easily broken. The 
cakes are then broken and ground up finely in a mortar, 
sprinkled with water and mixed with any meal which passed 
through the holes in the cylinder at the first pressing. Then 
follows the second pressing. Mills which only make table 
oil express twice in the cold, or on the second occasion in very 
slight heat ; but usually the nuts are pressed three times. 

"The first expression in the cold gives an almost colourless oil 
with a-rreaUe tasie and smell, which serves as a pure table oil, 
and is used for making oleo-margarine ; the second yields a 
'sweet oil,' and the product is also used for burning; the third 
expression, made with heat, gives an oil — rabat oil — of a yellow 
colour and hardly agreeable taste and smell, which is used in 

"By these diligent pressings 30-40 per cent, of the oil is 
removed in something like the following proportions :— 
" 1st expression, 16-1 S per cent, of a tine table oil. 
" 2nd „ 7-8 „ of a table oil or 

illuminating oil. 
" 3rd „ 7-8 „ of an indifferent oil. 

" The oil-cake left contains about 7*5 per cent." 

Such is the result of expression carried on at the mills of 
Hamburg, Berlin. Marseilles. Uoimn. \c. According to Ib-nz,-. 
the nuts in Spain, when pressed as soon a- - 
60 per cent. ; in Italy 50 per cent, is obtained, in India, 43 per 
cent., in Senegal, 30-33 pel- cent., ami at Pondieherry, 37 percent. 

The bags used in the process are made of horse hair or wool. 
The cake varies in shape according to the machinery used. 
Those made in Riga are twice as long as those made in West and 
South Germany. 

When it is intended to devote the whole of the oil to soap- 
boiling, chemical means are used in its extraction— carbon 
. petroleum-ether, benzene or canadol. The use of 
such substances a- carbon bisulphide obviously leaves the cake 
unfit for food. 

The Indian Oil Mill. 

The Indian oil mill was described by Subba Rao in the Bulletin 

of the Dejifu'tmriit <;/' Lan<l 1,'< <■,,<].< arid Aurinrtture. Madras, 
p. 288 (No. 28, 1893), in the following way :— 

" The oil is expressed locally in native mills of the ordinary 
rotary pestle-and-mortar pattern. The chief centres of this trade 
are Valavanur (700 mills), Panruti (200 mills), and l'oudicherrv 
(200 mills). A single charge for a mill is from 15 to 18 Madras 
measures of seed (about 1.V1S lbs. j. which must first be thorou-hlv 
dried. During the pressing water is added to the seed in small 
quantities. After workinu for about half-an-hour. oil begins 
to rolled and ill,, kernels to cake. The cake is then loosened 
with a crowbar, and about | 11). of old ground-nut cake dust 
is mixed with the mass, an I work- is then resumed. In 45 minutes 
ll '""i ! '"' i-omm.-nr. in-nt of tdie work about three measures of oil 
are ladled out of the mill. The cake is again loosened from the 
- 1 ' 1 ''- ' • f) " mill in I the ems _ im . I \1 om liv. i mutes 

afterwards a strip of cloth is dip]., d in the mill and the oil 
a I -orl. d is squeezed into the pot. In this manner about a 
measure of oil is taken out. Thereafter the oil is taken up on a 
brush or a bunchy of fowl's f- itin i-s an 1 squeezed out into the pot. 
The cake is then again loosened and broken up. About an hour 
after commencing the work, the oil collected in the lower cavity 
is removed by a strip of cloth fastened to an iron rod about 2 feet 
long which is dipped into it. In this manner another measure 
ot oil is removed. Then another handful of -round-nut rake 
dust is added to prevent the adhesion of the cake to the pestle.

he can obtain a crop. As a further precaution it is necessary, 


when the shelled seeds have to be kept for some little time ln-fore 
sowing, to keep them in small bags or baskets, lest tiny boat and 
lose all power of growing. 

The seeds are set by hand on the ridge, a bushel to a bushel 
and a half of pods (i.e., 24-36 lbs.) giving seed enough for one 
acre. The ridges should be 2.',-;? feet apart, and, when the 
plough has prepared them, an ingeniously simple machine 
known as the " dotter " is run along each 1)a j r ol ridges 
before the hands, marking by means of spikes on its wheels tin- 
spot where each seed is to be set. The hands following place a 
single seed into each hole at a depth of 11,-2 inches, and cover it 
with the foot. Within seven to ten days from planting the 
seedling appear.- at the surface, and then any spots where failure 
to germinate has occurred are resown. The after workings are 
ploughing!? and weeding-, three or four in number ; in the second 
ploughing the earth of the intervening space is thrown towards 
the plants in order to help the pods to bury themselves. 

The crop is sown in May, or at times late in April or in June ; 
flowering begins in July and lasts a month. The plant can stand 
a good deal of dry weather. 

Harvesting is commenced in the end of September and continued 
through October. A plough with a narrow mould-board is run 
along each side of the row- and the soil round the plants loosened. 
Then the vines are lifted by hand, shaken five of earth, and left 
lor a day or two to wither. After this the plants are placed round 
stakes into small shocks, under, and often also over, which is laid 
a board as protection from the moisture of the soil or from rain. 
Thus left the pods are cured in the air. The last process is to pick 
the nuts, a troublesome piece of work done by hand, which is 
accompanied by grading and cleaning the pods for market. There 
also exist factories which buy the pea-nuts, clean and grade 
them, and sell them again. In doing this " pops," or empty pods, 
are removed. Such empty pods are said to be most abundant 
when there is a lack of calcareous food in the soil, or as an effect 
of dry weather. 

Pods which remain in the soil are picked out as far as possible 
on ploughing the land, and hogs turned on to grub out and feed 
on what is left, lest the plant become a tiresome weed in the next 
crop. The hay, too, is saved in as good condition as may be for a 
food for animals. 

Modifications of this method are commonly practised. At times 
the ridge system is forsaken, and planting done on the flat. As is 
well known the relative advantages for the two svstems depend 
chiefly on the depth of the soil ami auburn of -le-i-urn available . 
Various mixed manures are given ; and the distance between the 
rows varied with the variety eh « of the earth. 

Quite rev ha- been directed'to the culture 

on irrigated lands (see Bulletin. Fh,,-i-hi A-n i<-uUu,-nl StuJio,,, 26, 
1899, p. 26), but the results are not to hand. 

On land new to pea-nuts the crop is usually heavy, and the 
ridges are at least three feet apart. After a few years under 
pea-nuts the growth becomes less vigorous, and the rows may 
hardly meet at a distance of 2h feet . 

A striking contrast to thU i"s rh» custom in Gambia to sow the 
rows a foot apart. Here the land is ploughed and the see< I dibble, t 


in on the ridge as in the States. The standing crop is weeded, 
and ultimately ploughed up. In Angola, Monteiro tells us 
(<>/>. '•//., i., p. 129) the ground for pea-nuts— good soil in a river 
valley a little way inland where the comparatively arid coastal 
strip ceases — is cleared and the weeds burned ; then, with a 
primitive little hoe, women stir the soil to the depth of a few 
! '■'" -• ■■;' I t lie seeds are dropped in and covered up. Put in the 
ground in October or November, the crop is not removed until 
■July or August, though the nuts are readv to be eater, green 
in April. 

In India care is taken to get the soil into a good state of tilth, 
and as m the 1 nited States lime is regarded a- a valuable manure. 
Subba Rao {I.e., p. 22b) says that silt containing lime to the 
extent of 22 per cent, was applied at the rate ,,f l()li cart-loads per 
acre when the land of c i.aiii \ill.u- - was In— i bm., J.- under 
ground-nuts, and afterwards at intervals of a few vears. Animal 
manure is regarded as beneficial only when applied to the preceding 
crop. Ashes are largely used, at the rate of 10 to 30 cartloads 
per acre a cart-load being about a ton. Indigo refuse is rarely 
used. It is considered that organic manures do harm rather 
than good if there be a loi .plication. 

_ Seed required for sowing is kept in the pods until required. It 
is recognised that it will not keep for more than a year, and that 
it must be well looked after, it b.-ii . ,| 1( . po ds are 

antities to dry them once a month. As a rule seed is 
sLeiie.i before sowing, but this is not alwavs done for sometimes 
one-seeded pods are picked out and .own. shelling is done if 
pMss,l,h. not more than five days before sowing, and requires 
gr-ar e;,re m order not to injure the seeds. Women perform the

Undoubtedly Araehis h>ii>n t j,nt is a most exhausting crop. 
Cultivators in America know long ago that their st cond crop was 
less vigorous than the first and drew the rows closer together; 
but the exhalation of the soil lias been allowed to reach the

Experiments have been tried in Florida with this plant on

One thing is very evident, that the size of the crop depends 
largely upon intelligent cultivation.

Concluding Remarks. 
We have followed the history of Arac/iis h}ii>t><j(.ea from its 
discovery by the early colonists of the Now World 'to the present 
time, and have seen reason for tracing its appearance in Africa to 
the I'onuguesr, who traded on the Guinea Coast; we have noted 
its early and obscure history in Asia, and have seen how wit lei v it 
is now acclimatised, and what a great part of the world is capable 
"t producing crops of it; even in Central Europe this is possible. 

Then, when the scarcity of olive oil demanded a substitute, 
France holding the chief trade in oil-seeds not only came forward 
as the market for ground-nuts, but her settlements ohiained the 
export trade, and Gambia, Senegal, Pondicherry, and in a measure 
Algiers, prospered by it. Our neighbouring English possessions 
were not long in following suit, British Gambia gaining by prox- 
imity to the French settlements, and Madras profiting through 
■iy. The rapid growth of the trade was most marked. 
At first West Africa supplied Europe, then nuts came from India, 
and even China and the Argentine, and now in addition there is 
an increasing importation from the Mozambique co „t ; the latt.-r 
grows, while from the competition. 

Marseilles, from the first the chief market for ground-nuts in 
Europe, and still chief, despite the growing trade of HamKurg, 
London, Rotterdam and Genoa, is undergoing a crisis in its oil 
trade, and this, because of its connection with the decreased 
to I i. th.„ of India (see p. 186), demands our attention. 

Since 1894 the importations of oil-^ds i, v Marseilles have 

fallen ; in 1897 41 per cent. (16 out of 39) of the oil mills of the

Obviously, then, the sooner the crop finds its way into the oil-

or Senegal and European pons is greatly in favour of

nand for the' oil appears from statements to 

in this direction. Tie- big importation of uiid.-c.rti.-at.-d "Tomid-

is probably an effect of this. 

The Chamber of Commerce of Pondicherry aware of the 
decrease in their trade— for not only has the acreage under the 

■ i , : : 

has been diverted to other ports— has commenced to experiment 
by the introduction into India of new seed ; and the Government 
of M eras is moving in the same direction. It has been noticed 
that fields sown with seed imported from the Mozambique coast 
::s while neighbouring crops sown 
with Indian seed have been very poor. More experiments are 
needed; i u the absence of any certain estimate of the relative 
values of different races it is impossible to foretell what the 
results will be.

Russian Embassy at Teheran from Lx/i-f'o, when lie went in 
same capacity to Peking, where he remained until he was ] 
sioned in 1884. Dr. Bretschneider's correspondence with I 
began about the year 1880, and he sent dried plants from tim< 
time, including a good set of his herbarium from

Botanical Magazine for September— A>/>A ,/>/,-/,/, osmanthum is 
a handsome species, with fragrant flowers which last about two 
months. The Kew plant was purchased from Messrs. Sander & Co., 
.-„d tic species from I'.ra/il. The exceedingly pretty 
TrU Taori, bulbs of which were received from Mr. Siehe. of 
Mersina, is a native of alpine pastures in the Eastern Taurus, 
growing at elevations of 4,500 to 6,500 feet. It is allied to 
1. sieuophi/lhi, figured on plate 7734. Oxalis dispar is a new 
•iuiana, closely resembling O. Lauren!, e and 
O. Noronhce. Its flowers are golden \ellow, and about an inch 
across. This plant also was procured from Messrs. Sander <t Co. 
L/ipatiens Thomsoni, the commonest sub-alpine species of the 
genus in the Western Himalaya, was raised from seeds received 
from J. F. Duthie, Esq., B.A., P.L.S., in 1900. It is described as 
;t very attractive plant, from the abundance of its rose-coloured 
flowers amongst the deep green foliage, followed by the red, 
drooping pods. Arctot -v, if ul new species from 

nl, was grown in the garden of W. E.Gnmbleton, Esq., 
of Belgrove, Queenstown, Ireland. Its stout peduncles are from 
eight inches to a foot high, with flower-heads three inches in 

Botanical Ma w 

d forests in the Fiji Islands, whence some living 

sent to Kew in 1881 by the late Sir J. H. Thurston. 

K.L.M.G. The plant from which the drawing was made flowered 

Its height to the top of the 

crown of large pinnatisect leaves is 24 feet. The supporting 

roots emitted from the base of the trunk are spinous. Hah, nana

: r V. D. and Li. m. ]■;. .1. Ij^ard, who presented some 

tubers to Kew. It has two large orbicular leaves adpressed to the 

ground and racemes of numerous white flowers, of which the 

petals are divided to the base into two and the lip into three long 

slender segments. The very slender spur is five to six inches 

tg plant, havine small 

semi-orbicular leaves and small yellow capitula. It has been 


grown at Kew for many years, and its native country is believed 
to be South Africa. Calorhabdos cauloptera is a Chinese Scrophu- 
lariaceous herb with ovate-lanceolate leaves and terminal spike- 
like racemes of small red-purple flowers. Seeds of this plant 
were received from Dr. Henry in 1896. Calorhabdos is a small 
genus closely allied to Veronica, differing, among other characters, 
in having all the leaves alternate. Bubus palmatus, a native of 
Japan and China, is a climbing shrub with five- or six-lobed 
sharply-toothed leaves and white flowers, the petals of which are 
elliptic — an infrequent occurrence in the genus. The drawing was 
made from a plant obtained from Messrs. James Veitch & Sons 

Botanical Magazine for November.— Musa oleracea, from New 
Caledonia, is the only known species having an underground 
tuber, by which the plant may be propagated in the same wav as 
the potato. The tubers are full of starch, and when cooked in 
various ways are used as food by the natives of New Caledonia. 
The introduction of this plant to Kew is due to Mr. W. Souttor, 
Superintendent of the Gardens of the Brisbane Acclimatization 
Society. Senrriu nna/tn/ir,,, is a tall, stout glabrous und.-i-l.nib, 
with usually oblong-lanceolate toothed leaves and moderately large 
low flower-heads. It is a mountain plant of Victoria 
and South Australia. Seeds were received from J. H. Maiden, Esq., 
F.L.S., Director of the Botanic Garden, Sydney, in LS'.W, and 
plants raised from them flowered in the Temperate House in 
October, 1900. Liparis tricallosa is a terrestrial orchid from the 
-M:d:i> ]'■ nn-n.i ,\A -L. Si. In A: .-hi j , l ;u ,,. h\v-i di-eoveivd 
by Mr. F. W. Burbidge, it was introduced into cultivation by 
Mr. W. Bull, of Chelsea, in IX7'.». The specimen figured was 
presented to Kew, when in full flower, by the Right Honourable 
Joseph Chamberlain in June, 1900. Trrmria Chloris was dis- 
covered by Mr. F. C. Lehmann in moist woods on th 
slope of the Andes of Colombia at elevations of 4,800 to 5,500 feet 
The L r enils , whirh ;_ ;llli ,,[ ;il , .. , compliment 

to Sir Trevor Lawrence, Bart,, who commits 
from which the drawing was prepared. Syringa oblata, a native 
- c North China, is very closely allied to S. vulgaris, 

bably, Professor Sargent says, only a geographical variety of that 
species. The Kew plant, which was obtained from Mr. Lemoine 
of Nancy, flowered in the Temperate House in April of the

APPENDIX II.— 1901. 

IN the preface u, the ('ahihujuc ,,/ //,,■ 1/ihranj >>/ //,, /,',,,/,// 
Botanic Hardens, which was issued ae Volume III. of the 
Additional Series of the Kew Bulletin, it was stated that 

annual li.Ms of I'liunv additions would l,o published in the 

Library by gift or purchase during tin- year L'.KKJ, with the 
sets already catalogued. 

Like the Catalogue, the List is printed on one side of the 
page, to allow of its being cut up. It is probable that many 
persons and institutions will make the Kew Catalogue the 
basis of their own, and will use the lists of additions to supply 
printed slips for fresh titles.

The number of garden plants annualh des< .-ribe, i in botanie;d 
anil horticultural }.n 1 .1 i*-ur i< ,ns. both Kn-di.-h ;:itil foreign, is now 
so considerable that it has been thought desirable to publhdi a 
complete list of them in the Kew BuUvtin each y» r. The 
follow i:.- list comprises all the new introductions r. i 
1900. These lists are indispensable to the maintenance of a 
correct nomenclature, especially in the smaller botanical estab- 
- in correspondence with Kew, which arc as a rule, 
only scantily provided with horticultural periodicals. Mich a 
h«r v-nl also afford information i\ -p ■ i - i « w ]•' u - ui ... r 
ill be distri- 
buted from it in the regular course of exchange with other 
botanic gardens. 

The present list includes not only plants brought into cub i vat ion 
for the first time durii " f lh '^" 

which have been re-introduc I after 1" -' •■' > u\au..n. 

Other plants included in the list may have been m g, 
several year-, but either were nut described or their names had 
not been authenticated until recently. 

In addition to species and well-marked virieiies. hybrid-. 

. or of garden origin, have been included 

1 with formal botanical names. 

ual forms of well-known garden plants are omitted, 

for obvious reasons. 

In everv case the plant is cited under its published name, 
although some of the names are doubtfully correct. Where, 
however, a correction has appeared desirable, this is made. 

The name of the person in whose collection the plant was first 
noticed or described is given where known.
