SUBSTITUTES FOR BREAD.
In various parts of tho world, tho
poorer classes consutno little or no
bread. Baked loaves of bread aro
practically unknown In portions of
southern Austria and Italy, and
throughout the. Agricultural districts
of Roumania, says the London Stand
ard. Austrlans aver that In the vil
lages of Obcrstctrtnark, not very far i
from. Vienna, bread Is never seen.
The staple food Is slorz, a kind of pop
"ridge made from ground beech nuts,
taken at breakfast with fresh or cur
dled milk, at dinner with broth or
fried lard, and at supper with milk.
(The dish Is also called helden, and is
substituted for bread, not only In the
Austrian district mentioned, but In
Carlnthla and other parts of the Ty
rol. Northern Italy offers a substi
tute for bread in tho form of Polenta,
which Is a kind of porrldgo made of
boiled grain. Polenta Is not, however,
allowed to granulato like Scotch por
rldgo or tho Austrian storz. It Is In
stead boiled Into a solid pudding,
which is cut up and portioned out
with a string. It is eaten cold as
often as It is hot, and is in every
senso an Italian's daily bread. Thero
Is a variation of polonta called mama
l!ga, the favorite food of tho poorest
classes li Iloumanla. Matnaliga re

the former In one respect tho grains
are not permitted to sottlo Into n solid
mass, but are kept distinct after tho
fashion of oatmeal porridge.

on tho eve of being able to announce
the success of his red rose ventures.
Onco a friend from France brought
Mr. Bancroft u cutting of n red roso
called "Madame Ferdinand Jcmaln,"
which, although It had failed at home,
wa) thought to lmve possibilities In
nn American climate. Brady nursed
It along with a fair degree of coiiBcIen
tiouHiiuss, nono too pleased, likely
enough, that Franco had been so premature-
In this honorablo business.
Bui thu llltlu alien rose bUBh sickened
and died, and was thrown nBldo, pre
sumably at the ond of Its history.
Then came tho shocking nows from
England "that William FranclB Ben
nett hnd won tho red roso race. He
had had an astonishing lucl: with his
plants, and had finally established
their hardihood and their pormanence
of color. Bancroft and Brady mourn
ed In secret. Truo, thoro was still the
American championship to bo tried
for, but the first lino cnreloss rapture
of success hnd been already captured.
A roso culturlst In Now York had
thu good fortuno, about this time, to
muko a now flower, which ho prompt
ly namod tho "Georgo Bancroft," but
this was not compensation enough,
either for tho historian or his garden
er. So back thoy went to tho seedling
beds, with rcnowed determination.
In tho face of such a touching faith
and such abounding energy, tho fates
were bound to be kind. And bo, one
morning, a delighted yell from his
gardenor brought Mr. Bancroft scur
rying into hlB garden, to find that In
n bed of white and yellow seodllngs
there stood u strange red rose, look
ing for all the world nn If It had come
to stay. Us stem had a stiffness the
like of w'hlch had never before been

Whero It had come from nobody

stalwart seed left from the scored
nnd discredited "Mme. Fordlnand Je
matu," and It might have boon Just
that mysterious freak which the rose
culturlst has come to take for grantod
under tho namo of a "sport."
At any rate, there It waB, nnd It re
mained to bo developed.
For It must bo known at tho outset
that getting a Blnglo bloom Is the least
of the roBo culturlst's troubles. In fact,
It merely marks their beginning.
All now brandB of roses nre grown
from theso curiosities called "sports."
In a bod of seedlings, about onco In so
often, an orphan roso will appear
which will boar no trace of Its parent
age, and will usunlly be found to have
neither longevity nor the ability to
roproduco after Its klud. Ub seeds will
revert to typo.
So John Brady set forth on tho up
hill climb to perfecting his llttlo red
"sport." In duo tlmo ho did It. And
when ho had threo buehos which ho
could personally guarantee to ropro
duco red rosea utter the original pat

said the lady,' not to be outdone.
And then and thero the namo orig

It. For tho rose's maker had already
decided that It should be named for

Brady finally mado tho best of it.
and contented himself with assuring
Judgo Hngnor that things would have
been different If he had had any Bay
From this tlmo on, however, the his
tory of John Brady and his precious
roso begins to take a somber turn. Mr.
Bancroft died In 1891, bequeathing the
American Beauty to Brady as a testa
ment of his affection and appreciation.
The famous gardens passed into other
hands, and Brady moved, with his
largo and hungry family and his
handful of American Beauty roBO
biiBhes, into a little house outside of

nor tho knack of picking up odd Jobs.
HIb eldest son was still too young for
responsibility, and the ages of the
others, In regular succession, dimin
ished punctually by a year. HIb wife
was frail, out of patlenco with pover
ty, and worn to exhaustion with the
caro of children. '
Brady survived tho first part of this
bleak period by observing the Span
is proverb, "Patience, and shuffle tho
cards." No stress of want could make
him part with his rose bushes, though
his wife, regarding him as a sort of
raonomanlao on this subject, put her
noblest persuasions Into the task of
undoing his resolve.
To his reiterated tales of tho for

that sho nnd tho children were hungry
that very day arfd hour, and that more

value of his roso kopt Brady obdurate
to appeals, domostlc or professional.
