In southeru California, in the peach distx'icts, peach stones are not uncominoiily used as fuel. They are sold at the canneries by the wagon load. Peach stoues burn f reely aud make a very good fire. On the homeward voyae of vessels in the cocoanut trade cocoanuts are nsed for fuel, a's they are also while the vessel is lying at her wharf discharging not sound nuts, but such as are decayed and not salable. The nuts are broken before they are put into the stove. Cocoanuts burn freely and make a good hot flre.
