TBOPIC FRUIT PEOCESS.
A NEW SYSTEM CF EVAPORATION
Authorities Think It Will Revolutionize
the Fruit Trade-Nay Give to Dwellers
ia the Comparatively Unproductive
. North Blessings or the Prodigal South.
The decline of the tropical regions of
America has of lata years been a fruit
ful topic of discussion. Well provided
as the public has been with statistics
as" to the condition of those* once fa
vored countries, no one who has not
seen with his eyes the present state of
. affairs can fully realize the change. In
a land where nature is so prodigal that
almost the casual thrusting of a
branch into the earth insures a tree,
desolation and poverty are everywhere
found. The reason is plain enough; it
is only the remedy that has remained a
problem. The products of the tropics
are gratis, and the exportation of these
involves a greater risk and a larger
knowledge of the subject than has been
at the command of these countries. On
every side there is a waste of food
fairly maddening to the student of
economics; but uow to utilize this su
perabundance, how to convey it in
proper shape to the millions who win
only a bare sustenance from over
worked soils in other countries, is the
great and hitherto unsolved problem.
The solution now suggested is one
which has the sanction of Australia,
and this means more than appears on
the surface. Whether it be because
Australia has fewer lives to care for
and finds them more precious, or be
cause the authorities have less to do,
cannot be now debated; but the fact
is that Australians are not permitted
jj; to poison themselves with adulterated
food, as is the glorious privilege of free
citizens in this country. The govern
ment watches with a never sleeping
eye the food which supplies the tables
. of the people. When, therefore, the
Australian government indorses a
process and gives it medals galore, it
means that science has set her seal
on it The system of fruit preservation
which is now being introduced into the
West Indies and Central America has
and vegetables are not dried on the
"""countries of Australasia.
Th new system is one of evapora
tion, but the process differs from oth
ers in that it is quickly done and in
sures absolute cleanliness. The fruit
and vegetables are not dried on the
ground for days together, like figs,
prunes and similar preserves. Five or
six hours is all that is required to
change the fruit into an article that
will keep fer months and years, and
still preserve the original flavor-In
some cases actually improve it It is
not, however, so much the mechanical
process as the effect on the tropics
which interests the ordinary observer,
and it is in this direction that it is at
present being developed^^
Tie?e_i5^aa-^ruit tn \he**world so

or which contains more nutriment and
.can be served in a greater variety of
wavs. Yet there ?3 no fruit which is
-'commodities. There is. banana dour,
to begin with, a delicacy which is used
for the making of cake3, fritters and
the like. There is banana prepared as
a substitute (an excellent one) for cit
ron and raisons in fruit cake. It also
makes a delicate preserve not unlike
and quite as delicate as figs and
prunes. Banana butter is another
product; this is a sort of jam, which
is not unkuown in tropical countries
as a great delicacy rather difficult to
make by the old-fashioned process. All
these products can now be marketed at
a small cost The machinery is not
elaborate, and the original cost of the
fruit is almost nothing. It is esti
mated that the banana butter, for in
stance, can be put on the European
market and sold there at less than half
the price of any native condiment. To
the poor of Europe, whose list of deli
cacies so limited, this will be no
The banana is not the only tropical
fruit which is being treated by the new
process. Any one who has lived in
tropical countries knows that tb? ne
groes who are out of the track of civil
ization make from the cassava a kind
of.nour which is extremely wholesome
and cheap. This is also being put up
for exportation. The extremely nu
tritious okra (the value of which is
fully realized in the tropics, where it
is constantly in use as a food for in
valids) is being prepared in quantities
for exportation. In its canned form
the okra necessarily fails to retain all
its value as a food, but the exaporated
vegetable has been proved by analysis
to contain all the nultriment. The man
who makes okra soup a standard food
among the poor of any country is be
stowing a permenent benefit. Sweet
jpotatc flour is also' made for exporta
The British government is just now
unusually keen as to the cond'.ion of
it West Indian possessions. As long
as fruit is the chief product of those
countries, and as long as old methods
of exportation prevail, so long will the
decline of the West Indies continue.
Once save the enormous waste by
finding a market for the innumerable
products of the south, and the islands
will regain their old prestige. The
government of Jamaica has been in
terested in the evaporation question,
and a favorable outcome seems prob
able. In Central America the process
is now fully appreciated. From Santa
Tomas, Guatemala, the British army is
now receiving supplies of evaporated
food. The republics of Central Ameri
ca have all indorsed the process and
are beginning to experimnt on their
own account. From a trade point of
view the innovation ls important. Fruit
authorities think that it is likely to
revolutionize the tropical fruit trade.
Be this as it may, there is great in
terest in watching the attempt to give
to dwellers in thc comparatively un
productive north some of the blessings
of the prodigal south.
Spiritualists In France.
The first chamber of the appeal
court has just given a decision which
is of considerable interest to spiritual
ist". Madame Rlvail. widow of Allan
Kardec, left a will bequeathing her
considerable fortune to ~ Spiritualis
tic society and persons connected with
that belief. The will was attacked
by Madame Rivall's natural heirs, and
the court has given a verdict in their
favor, annulling the will leaving the
money to the Spiritualistic pociety be

I THE BIBLE AND A MYSTERY.
Only Three Men in the India Paper Sa*
cret at Oxford.
It is fairly well known, says the ;
Golden Penny, that the Universit?s of ?
Oxford and Cambridge, having paid j
?20,000 toward the cost of publica- j
tion, are joint owners of the copy
right of the Revised Version. The j
copyrights of the Authorized Version j
and of the Book of Common Prayer,
however, are vested in the Crowu,
and authority to print th.im in Eng
land is given by patent to the king's
printers, and by charter to the Uni
versit?s of Oxford and Cambridge.
There is, probably, not another print
ing press in the world which issues
so many copies of thc Bible as that of
the Oxford university, where the fa
mous India paper, a quarter of a cen
tury ago, revolutionized both the Bibb
and the prayer book trade.
Oxford's answer to the question
whether the circulation of the Bible is
decreasing is emphatically: "No." The
output averages about a million com -
plete copies every year, apart from
New Testaments, separate portions and
Welsh Bibles. Justly proud cf their
printing the authorities of the press
make a standing offer of a guinea to
anybody who first points out a print
er's error in any edition of the Author
ized Version and as there are over
70 editions of the Oxford Bible alto
gether, it is sufficient testimony to the
excellence of the work to say that the
bill for these errors-the errors them
selves being usually of the most triv
ial character-rarely amounts to more
than two or three guineas a year.
There are a few obsolete words in the
Bible, however-"astonied," for ex
ample-which are a constant source of
trouble on this account, raising false
hopes in the breasts cf many a would
be winner of the guinea reward, and
involving correspondence with appli
cants from all over the world.
Today the Bible, in all its stages,
is produced by the best workmanship
in the trade, and under the most
watchful care it is possible to provide.
This remark is equally true of each of
the three great houses from which wa
get our Bioles. The Oxford Press is
remarkable from the fact that it not
only prints its books, but manufactures
its own paper, makes its own type for
some 50 or 60 languages, maintains its
own bindery-where the t-kins of at
least 100,000 animals are annually pre
pared for Bibles alene-and, in short,
does everything connected with the
work from start to finish. The Oxford
type foundery is interesting as being
the oldest establishment of its kind in

Man is an animal, and Darwin has
shown that not only is he closely akin !
to other animals, but'that the law j
which control the development of thc
lower animals also control the devel
opment of man. Hs has also shown
that crossed breeds of animals ar-j
larger and stronger than either parent !
When we examine into the origin of
the English people we find the ancient !
Britons fighting and mingling with th-!
Romans and subsequently with the
Picts, Scots, Danes Saxons and Nor
mans. For more than a thousand
years these various breeds of men hav-i
crossed and recrossed, until they have
been molded into that homogeneous
mass that we know as Englishmen.
Turning to the United States, we find
the foundations of a new nation laid
by the sturdiest and most enterprising
of these Englishmen. They landed on 1
the then distant shore, conquered the
wilderness, organized a new govern
ment closely akin to the old, and In -
vited the people of all the world to join
them. The Slavs, the Germans and
the Latins mingle together, and in a
few years become neo-Anglo-Saxoni.
or what may be more properly termed
Anglo-Americans. The evolution go

There is thus being formed, on a
gigantic scale, a new race of men,

Elevators in Churches.
There are something liKe 165,000
church edifices in this country, many
of them large and costly modern struc
tures, on expensive sites. Yet so far
as we can learn not a church in Amer
ica avails itself of the elevator.
The business advantage of the ele
vator is obvious. Where land is ex
pensive it pays for itself many times
by making practical a repetition of
floors otherwise out of the question.
Instead of spreading out the modern
structure shoots up.
Elevators in churches could be used
for two purposes: First, to increase
the value of a gallery. Where a
church has a gallery this is generally
the neglected and unpopular part. An
elevator might easily raise pew rents
sufficiently to make it a very profita
ble investment Office and apartment
rentals have ueen thus revolutionized.
And, second, the social facilities of a
church could be furnished without the
expense of additional lots and a sepa
rate construction. This might be done
without impairing the churchly char
acter of the architecture.-Church

Frictional Effect of Trains on Air.
An exceptionally Important paper
dealing with the frictional effect of
railway trains upon the air has recent
ly been published by the St. Louis
Academy of Science. This inxestiga
tlon was undertaken by Professor F.
E. Nipher, at the request of a leading
railroad, and was the sequel of a law
suit in which the railroad was defeated.
In the case referred to a boy, standing
near the track, was overthrown by a
rapidly passing train, rolled under the
wheels and killed. The evidence
showed that he was not struck by the
train, but was overwhelmed by the air
suction and dragged under. The su
preme court of Missouri, however, re- I
pudiated the evidence of two leading j
scientific men as to the probability of
death being caused in such a way, and
denied, by inference, the possibility of \
such effects, with which everybody who
has ever stood by a fast moving train
is familiar. The investigation showed,
as a matter of fact, that with trains
going at the rate of 40 miles an hour,
there is an inward pressure of the air
of from four to six pounds per square
foot at a distance of 30 inches from the
train, and that still air is reached only
at a distance of many feet.

A process for extracting rubber from
the hule plant has been discovered by
a Mexican living at Sierra Mojado, and
a factory for this purpose has been es
tablished at San Luis Potosi. This
plant is a species of sagebrush, with
small leaves, which grows to a height
of about three feet and is found not
ouly in Mexico, but also In Texas.Wyo
ming and Nebraska. It grows in moun
tainous regions, and is said to contain
40 percent of rubber. The plant is first
cut up by machinery and then mixed
with certain chemicals in a steam jack
eted tank. The product is then sub
mitted to hydraulic pressure and run
into a setting tank, where the chemi
cals and other waste substances are
drawn off from the heavier gum, which
settles at the bottom of the tank. Thc
accounts furnished do not mention the
quality of the rubber produced, hut
they state that while the cost of pro
duction is slight the high cost of trans
