THE island of Camiguin is situated to the north of Mindanao, at some six or eight miles from the coast, is only a few miles in circumference, and consists principally of high land. On the slopes and in the valleys is grown a large quantity of one of the most important staples of the Archipelago, the well-known Manila Hemp—the fibre of the Musa textilis.
