Tropical fruits Not What Thoy
Arc Cracked Up to Be.
Conlldencod by a Chinaman with a Bowl
ing Alley Citron
"Conflagration .tonus" in Chicago Inter
Ocean, Keb. 21.
Before arriving in Honolulu 1113'
palate reared up in my mouth in an
ticipation of a radiant, variegated,
gastronomic treat In the way of new
tropical fruits. I heard so much
about bread fruit, custard apples, or
cherimoycrs, mangoes, alligator pears,
guavasand pomegranates, to say noth
ing about the orauges, bananas, co
coanuts and pineapples, that I made
up my mind that I would order the
whole penological shooting match the
first time I sat down at a table. I
was the victim of a bitter disappoint
ment when I reached that verse of the
Hawaiian Hotel's bill of fare, denom
inated by One Lung, the waiter, a9
"llute." There were apples, import
ed from California; grapes, imported
from California; peaches, imported
from California; and oranges, im
ported from California. 1 did not
like to kick about my food in public,
for the man who docs so is usually
the one who lives on cotton batting,
baker's bread and fried liver when at
home. I didn't want the populace to
think I had never eaten any fruit
other than cucumber pickles and cod
fish balls, and so held my peace. But
I went out on a still hunt for any
thing that grew on trees and could be
chewed by a determined man whose
teeth are sound. My first experience
was with a fiery, untamed tamarind.
It is an innocent looking product but
it is loaded with vinegar.
I had eaten tamarind paste in the
States which tasted like condensed
lemonade, and was very good, so
when Mr. Castle handed me a brown
pod about as big as a man's thumb
and stood back to see me break out
and talk anarchy, I thought his pre
caution unreasonable. I broke open
the shuck and found it contained a
dark reddish mud, in which were
some hairs, which looked as though
the cook were a little careless, aud
two or tlnee vest buttons. I separa
ted this debt is and put the rest in my
eager mouth. It wasn't bad. It
tasted like chemically pure taitaric
acid toned down with lemon juice.
My teeth curled up their toes and
rocked on their foundations. I have
been going around since with a mouth
drawn up like that of an enthusiastic
amateur llute player.
The name "Breadfruit" is an at
tractive one and sounds toothsome.
It had always been a youthful dream
nf mine to run away to sea n"'l got
wrecked on some balmy winter re.
sort where I could go out and pluck
my morning roll from the trees, and
I still continued to cherish the dream
wheul found later in life that it was
frequently necessary to get out of a
cold winter night and hustle around
with a pan of dough because Mrs.
Jones had forgotten to set the
"emptyns" near enough to the regis
ter. But with all that I aiu not will
ing to substitute breadfruit for bread
without the fruit in the Jones family
menu. For the first two or three
days at the hotel I stuck up my nose
at biscuit, rolls, bread, flannel
cakes, and all that, aud called hard
at the Chinaman for breadfruit. Up
invariably gave me the Chinese equi
valent for the sentence, "I'm sorry,
sir, but wc are just out of bread
fruit." That is, I suppose it was
what he said. He may, however,
have been calling me a thundering
idiot. That is probably what he
1 soon found out that if I was
going to eat breadfruit I would have
to be my own walking steward and
possibly baker; so I started out to
run down and corral a baking. I
first fell into (he clutches of a low
down, Chinese fruit vendor who sold
me a citron, warranting it the finest
kind of salt-rising breadfruit. I
toted this shameless fraud around
with me for two or throe hours, until
an acquaintance casually asked me if
I was going to make 'preserves.
After' being set right I went back
and hunted up the Chinaman who
failed to recognize mo. In fact, he
said he never saw mo before aud that
I had done my business previously
with his twin brother, who was a dis
grace to the family and had Just been
taken to jail. He offered to sell me
some laro root which was the genuine
product of the Hour and yeast tree,
as he solemnly assured me on his
yellow, slant-eyed honor. But I had
eaten taro and I was angry. If I
could have seen his dishonest bro
ther it would have gone hard with
one of us. I chased around under a
hot sun, until I ran across a native
with the real thing. They were green
antt had a surface like an o9age
orange, and were about the size of
the smaller bowling-alley weapons,
1 took it up to the. hotel and told the
Bteward that when it was light
enough to go in the oven I wanted it
cooked aud served at the Chicago
table. In two or three days, or after
it had ripened sulllciently, it was
brought on. It is pot to be cut in
slices, as one would suppose, but
had to be broken open. I took a
mouthful and slopped proceedings to
diagnose its symptoms. I believe
that I hit it closer than a government
assayer when I state that it was com
posed of 50 percent sweet potato and
50 percent froah yellow bees wax. If
any one wishes to know what baked
breadfruit is like let hlia take those
articles In Ihe proportions named,
mix them together carefully, and eat
while hot as the cook books say.
The most satisfying native fruits
to be found hero are oranges, pine
apples, and bananas, which are, of
coure, no novelty. Poniegianatcs
may also be found in Chicago if ono
hums for them, and, nltPough they
grow here, it is easier to got one
there than in Honolulu. As every
one knows, they look like a Ben
Davis apple, with a sort of escape
valve on the blow end. They arc
divided into four compartments in
side, each one bt'in filled with cran
berry sauce, in which is pretty thick
ly scatteied loose passemcntciiulri 'li
ming. It takes patience to eat pome
granates, and I would pretty nearly
as soon chew shoe pegs for sustenance.
Cocoanut palms are thicker than
lamp-posts in (Jhicago, but thuy have
a way of growing high, and the nuts
aro hard to get. I was told that I
must eat a green cocoanut on the
hnlf-shell if I wanted to enjoy life.
After serious difficulty we succeeded
in getting a native to climb a tree
and pluck some for us. They were
cut open, aud at the first one Bur
ridge got wild because, as he said,
wc had been confidenced again. It
contained nothing but some skimmed
What he wanted was the good old
Chicago cocoanut with celluloid 111
sides. Wc cracked open another,
and found after draining off the bilge
water that it had just, commenced to
deposit celluloid. This we dug out
with a spoon, and found it was like
eating the white of a fried egg. But
it was a little smoother thanlhat and
tasted more like a slippery elm poul
tice. Down on Hawaii we met a native
with a bag full of custard apples or
cherimoycrs. II- sold them three
for a quarter and u e invested heavily.
This fruit had been described as
something unapproachable. It has
been called vegetable ice-cream with
out the ice. I had begun to get
suspicious, and made my custard ap
ple explorations cautiously, but was
rather agreeably surprised at its
coining Boniewhere near the plans
and specifications given out by
enthusiastic travelers. Still there is
no occasion for excitement over it.
Custard apples are very like our
pawpaws with the strong Indiana
flavor eliminated. When green they
have a faint flavor of turpentine, as
do the mangoes. The guavas are the
fruit from which guava jelly is ex
tracted. They grow on bushes that
resemble the quince, look like smooth
lemons, have an inside that looks like
a miniature watermelon with a faint
pink tiuge before it is ripe, and the
flavor is sweet, faintly acid aud
faintly like cough medicine. There
are musk-melons which grow on trees
and are called paupuas, but they are
not popular. The fact is most tiopi
cal fruits lack flavor and point. I
tried everything in sight, from pump
kins to skoke berries, but failed to
find anything which remotely ap
proached strawberries at an icecream
festival, or the old-fashioned water
melon by moonlight.

"I have just recovered from a sec
ond attack of the grip this year,"
says Mr. Jas. O. Jones, publisher of
the Leader, Mexia, Texas. "In the
latter case I used Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy, and I think with
considerable success, only being in
bed a little over two da3's, against
ten days for the first attack. The
second attack I am satisfied would
have been equally as bad as the first
but for the use of this remedy, as I
had to go to bed in about six hours
after being 'struck' with it, while in
the first case I was able to attend to
business about two days before get
ting 'down.' " oO cent bottles for
