A writor iu the Now York Sun
sounds the praises o baked ba
nanas us food, but tolls of inevita
blo harm from oatiug tho fruit
raw. Tlio raw bauatia is full of
animal gorms, bo says, productivo
of tapeworm, gives childron in
te&tiual troublo aud couvulsious,
besides being indigestible. Baked
bananas, according to tlio same
authoiity, are tlio ideal food for
nervous persons aud anemic, or
thin-blooded, ones. When, how
over, ho says that the banana is as
41 to ouo compared with tho pota
to in point of nourish ment, and
that throo bananas weighlug a
pound are equal in nourishment
to 11(5 pouuds of baked oread, ho
is rcpenliug a chestnut that has
been vigorously combated in this
homo of tho bauana. Notably,
Dr. Rishop, editor of tho Friend,
who has dwelt uudor tho shado of
the plantain leaf about throo
ijuartors of a century, seldom has
evinced moro disturbauco of his
equanimity than whou this
familiar statement, representing
tho bauana as the voiitablo treo of
life, has come to his notice. Nev
ertheless, baked bananas are good,
and tho people of tho Pacific
Coast cannot eat too many of them,
so long as they got tho fruit from
Whatever is, is right. Bad
spelling has generally beou re
garded asouly useful for exposing
tho incompetency of candidates
for positions whore good spelling
is cseutial, also as a setting for
real genius iu tho wit and wis
dom of such characters as Sam
Slick, Artemus Ward and Josh
Billings. Who should evor
have thought of bad spoi
ling, though, as tho uoeded cor
rective of a mistake of tho highest
scholarship ? A correspondent of
tho London Daily News calls at
tention to tho fact that tho errors
of orthography in tho recently
di&covored fragments of Greek
poems, tlioso rrngmonis uaviug
beou copied plionotienlly -that is,
by sound by slaves ignorant of
spoiling, throw now light on tho
vexed question of tho correct pro
nunciation of ancient Greek, aud
prove conclusively that it was
much like modern Greok, which
scholars have beou denouncing as
John F. Fugazi, an Italian
banker in San Francisco, last
month telegraphed to President
Cleveland an appeal for the ad
mission into tho United States of
rospectablo Italians unablo to read
and write. Ho said this on behalf
of his country mon: "The Italians
aro sturdy, hardworking, enter
prising producers and consumers,
and non-occupants of penitentiar
ies, though somo aro illiterate. I
stato this after over forty years of
experience among them in this
country. They invest in realty
and thoir children go to public
schools and help in building up
our country. Americaus should
not oxcludo from this land of free
dom tho compatriots of Colum
bus." This citation is hero sub
mitted as possibly useful to tho
Hawaiian authorities and planteis
in dealing with the proposition to
make a trial of Italian agricultural
labor in theso islands.
Evidently tho volunteers of tho
National Guard aro getting tired
of tho art of war. That is doubt
less because thoy have been got
ting too much of it, moro meetings
mid drills to attoud than they
think thoir health requires. Ono
drill a month ought to be enough,
with i battalion muster once a
quarter. Special diills for "awk
ward pquads" of recruits could
como in between as required. An
oncampment onco a yoar, with
rough country skirmish drill,
would top off all tho drilling re
quiromouts, while making an
ovont whoeo anticipation would
keep up tho intorostof companies.
Thoso suggestions aro respoclfully
submitted to tho board of ollicers.
aud tho Ministar of War.
Fullor particulars of tho Japa
nese liguriug on a Pacific cable
than thoso received previously by
way of the United States liavo
como iu the China aud Japan mail.
It is estimated that thero would bo
an annual profit of $075,000 on an
expenditure of $13,080,000. This
would bo nearly fivo per cent,
which is enough to attract capital
now lying idlo in tho great money
markets. The business would un
doubtedly iucreaso from tho bo
ginning as it did in other cables,
until in a fow years ouo cable
might bo found inadequate for the
offered trailic. It would be panning
strange, howovor, if the United
States should seo Japan get ahead
of her iu a Pacific cable
Amoug tho raouumontal liars of
tho times may be classed tho writ
or of an account of n visit to Mo
lokai, in tho first porson and call
ing himself "Rev. Philip Ander
son." Ho talks of a "Rev. Father
Djake, who voluntarily went from
Syracuse, N.Y., to take the place of
Father Damicn," saying that this
Father Drake has himself becomo
aillicted with leprosy. ''I was tho
first whito person except Father
Drake who had preached iu tho
little chapel at Molokai," says tho
narrator. Ho is evidently a space
writor who has imposed on somo
uowspapor, from which tho aiticlo
has started on its rounds probably
novor to stop.
An article in tho Samoa Times
urges the authorities to tako action
regarding two foreign lepers, who
it says "came from Honolulu to
esdapo being isolated." That
paper cannot conceive why they
should have loft Honolulu, where
"they would have received ovory
kindness nud attention iu the
place specially prepared for thoso
afllioted iu such a way, and would
not have felt that they wero beiug
shunned on every hand." Cer
tainly Iua Hawaiian authorities
have never conuived at giving
Samoa such undesirable immi
grants. In "far Cathay" the Boj.utin
is road. An editorial summary of
tho American mail in tho Shang
hai Mercury quotes this paper's
reply to tho Sail Francisco Chro
niclo's attack on tho Hawaiian
Of tho Secretary Disc Plow ono
of the most successful plantation
managors writes tho Pacific Hard
ware Co.: "I have delayed writing
you about the work of tho Secre
tary Disc Plow, until I satisfied
myself in rogard to its proper
working, j ftra busy
plowing a field with it now, and it
is doing lino work, and I hopo for
good results from tho thorough
plowing it is receiving."
