The name Costa Rica, to even theE uropean or American possessing a certain degree of culture, suggests ordinarily but the vaguest idea of a little republic situated somewhere on the American continent and producing if indeed this much be known a coffee which is quoted rather high on the market.

They are also represented as the scene of incessant interior wars, and one imagines them as constantly suffering from instability of government and insecurity in general. Nothing is falser than these suppositions, based on a complete ignorance of the facts.
