Not only tho sugar beet crop ia the
moat prdfitnblo ono by itself that far
mers can raise, but also it Improves the
latula on which beets nro raised, nnd tlio
yield of the following crop brought forth,
say wheat, weighs in train not less than
23 per cent more. It is that fact when
plainly ascertained has mado tlio rais
in? of beets bo popular iu Europe,
For instance in Germany where taxes
aro paid on the weight of beets worked
iu tho beet sugar factories, the total
amount of beets weighed by the govern
ment aeonts in 1871 1 2,250,013 long
tons and in 1891 10,023,310 long tons,
viz: Almost a fivefold times. Besides
when tlio sugar ia extracted from the
beets, tho residue pulp when properly
proportioned, is n most valuable food
for cattle; it increases their daily-quantity
As to tho sugar consumption our
home market is annually ifloro than
3 billions of pounds, mostly furnished
by foreign countries. Thero is plenty
of room for ourselves as you see.
Thonbovo letter was sent to a citizen

Tlio Now l'rull to lie Popular for American
No ono can travel through tho Span
ish republics and feast on tho profusion
of raro and delicious tropical fruits with
out wondering why they aro not ship
ped to tho United States in larger quan
tities ; and one has only to bo ut homo
for a few weeks to feel hungry for a
tastoof rich roast plantain, of juicy
uiangoo, or nature's ready-prepared
salad oi alligator pear, a uream in yel
low, whito and gretui, saya a writer iu
tho Chicago Inter Ocean. Tho timo is
near at hand when wo may all enjoy
theso luxuries without going to tho laud
of scorpions, tarantulas and "poco
tiempo ' ways. Fifteen years ago the
banana was a curiosity brought only to
this land by schooners loaded with ma
hogany. Today it is tickling tho palate
and tripping tho hoels of tho Yankees
from classic boston to the latest mining
discovery In tho Kockies. Iu 1881 the
Illinois Central railroad handled only
370 cars of bananas and in 1801 over
5200 cars. Last year tho total value of
this fruit imported by Uncle Sam's
boys was $72,000,000. There is another
fruit closely resembling tho banana that
ib superior to it in many respects and will
become a greater favorite with every
one us soon us the people become ac
quainted with it; it is the plantain. 1
suggest that the Inter Ocean introduce
It to Americans as tho coming tropical
fruit, destined to bo one of the greatest
favorites in tho market. It is queer
that so little is known about it In the
states, for it is really ono of tho oldest
filants known to mankind. Tho banana
s known to botanists ns tho musa sa
piowtum, but tlio plantain as tho musa
paradisiacu, or tho apple of paradise.
Tho Spaniards call it tlio "platano" on
account of its broad spreading leaf, der
iving tho nemo from tho Latin word
from which wo have taken our woid
plant. Tho delicious, seedless fruit is
known in all tropical countries. It was
a favorite with tho Greeks and Homans.
Pliny grows elated over the "plantago,"
and Alexander declared them a boon to
Tho plant grows wild in Siam and

is claimed by 1). S. (llaocn-Shakespearei

this fruit either the "Applo of Para

fruit with which F,vo tempted Adam,
Uvery ono who is acquainted with tliip
luscious fruit will ut onco admit that
this temptation was tenfold greater
than anything in tho lion Davis or rus
set lino could possibly have been. If
Eve simply ate her fruit first, and throw
tho peelings on the ground whero Adam
stepped on them, no wonder ho fell, for
the big plantain peeling has many ad
vantages over its relative, tho banana,
in seeing that sinners do not stand on
When tliis fruit becomes better known
in America tho old pictures of our beau

paradisial, is from lifteen to eighteen
leel long and a yard wide. Three yards

Tho average fruit buyer does not
know whether bananas and plantains
grow on trees as high as a pine or run
as a vino on tho ground like tho pump
kin. It is difficult at first to tell either
tho fruit or the treo of tho banana from
tho plantain. The banana is quite email
compared with its older relative, and
there is no rcsemblanct whatever in
taste. The banana is best raw. The
plantain is unlit to cat unless cooked.
To eat it raw would bo as bad as eating
pumpkin raw. When ripe it looks like
a banana, but is twice us large. The
cross section, too, is more triangular,
tho pulp tinner in texture nnd not so
mealy. In nourishment the accumula
tion dI starch and suiriir in tho golden,
oblong pulp makes it equal, if not su
perior, pound for pound, to our best
Dakota wheat bread.
Thy treo is tho queen of tho tropics,
starting from tho soli like a cilia lily,
from a tuberous root. Several stalks
aro sent up from this root, uiiio or ten
months after planting. When tho first
stalk is ripening others aro threo-quar-ters
grown, so that from three to live
bunches are obtained from each plant
every year. It requires less labor than
tho banana to raise and bears for twenty
years. It grows bo luxuriantly that the
ground which will produco ono bushel
of wheat will yield 700 pounds of plan
tniu. It is better adapted for transpor
tation, ns it does not decay and spoil as
easily as tho banana. It may bo gath
ered everv day in tho year, liko the
manna of Israel, fresh e'very morning,
but does not spoil liko tho heavenly
food that fell in Arabia. It must bo
cooked thoroughly. It may bo toiled
or fried, but tho best way is to roast,
bake or stew.
Iloiled witu d jck it is a dream of de
light to the epicure. It needs no sea
soning; nature has already prepared it
for man's palate, linked, it is a dainty
tit for kings. Uoastod with game it
would do more to convert a democrat to
tho delight and advantages of recipoo
ity with tho Spanish republics than all
tlio lanir speeches embalmed in tho
Cougrcsiionnl Record. Boasted plan
tain wild nt tho street corners would
cane j the nickels to jump out ol tho
pockets oi tired, hungry pedestrians
quicker than hot tamnles, besides bcinii
easier and neater to eat. Dried, tho
plantain keeps for years. It makes a
Hour that yields delightful biscuit and
royal bread. To the native Spaniard
the fresh fruit takes the place of potato,
and tho dried meal is hotter than lice.
Tho fruit could besliced mid dried by
fruit-driers liko those used in California,
and shipped every where. It only nteds
to bo known to be appreciated us thor

San FjiANCihCo, May 17. Tho mystery
surrounding tho suicido from tho ferry
steamer Piedmont on Thursday nieht
has at length been cleared up. The
woman was Miss May Jcnner, and sho
drowned herself becuuso Alexander M.
Cumining, her lover, would not m.irry
her in legal form anil acknowledge her
as his wife.
Tho deceased was born in Oregon, and
moved with her father and mother to
Seattle, Wash. There her mother died
and her father deserted his family.
May and her brother wero then adopted
by a man named Jenner. When she
grew up she married a man named Fer
guson, but after living with him n shoit
time secured a divorce on the ground.of
She" then ceine to this city, about
tlireo years ago, studied typowntin-j
and secured a position in tho ollico of
George F. Lsmson, tho auctioneer.
After working there for a year ?he left,
business having fallen oh", and about
this timo she met Alex. M. Cumming, a
young insurance luulser doing business
at 3)0 California street and living with
his parents in Fruit vale, Alameda coun-
Sho told her (lieuds that sho and
Cumming hail been married by contract
and that they wero only waiting until
his mother, who is very wealthy, should
bo reconciled, when their marriage
would bo announced.
Cumming was found last evening at
his home in Fruitvale. He evidently
know of tho unfortunate girl's rash act,
as yesterday he did not come across to
tho city as usual. Ho is a well-known
man about town nnd has many acquain
tances, among tho sporting element. He
says that Miss Jenner was only a ca-mil
ncquointnncoof his, but last night n Mrs.
Kassic called at the residenco of Mrs.
Smith and positively as.seniil that sho

church at Broadlnnde, which met iu

tion to man to be greater than her love
of duty to God. Atout two years ago
young Henry Hexforth, who had but re

and Kmina Seharpfenberg took a tender
farewell of one another in their native
home iu Wertsberg, Bavaria, each to
follow their paths of duty, which lay
far apart. Kev. Mr. Hexforth came to
America and eventually to liroadlands,
while his pretty sweetheart went to
Constantinople to labor among the hea

Tho young minister led i lonely life
in America ami some lime ago lay seri
ously ill for two or tlireo weeks in hi s
bachelor quarters, neglected and tin

reached the knowledge of tho young
missionary, whereupon sho ceased her
labors and started for America, think
