A FEAST IN SAMOA
Develops Into a Conglomerated
Scramble For Food.
Tbtt principal native foods of Samoa
are bananas, breadfruit, taro, flab, and
pork. Bananas prepared "Fa Samoa"
would not appeal very strongly to an
epicurean taste, for they are gathered
unripe and baked under heated atones,
as all Samoan cooking Is accomplished.
A baked green banana favors some
what a roasted chestnut, bnt not
enough to cause any mistake between
the two. x
The breadfruit. In my estimation,
appeals more strongly to a white
man's taste than any other Samoan
food. The large, mealy balls are bait
ed. broken open and eaten, usually
with one or other of the two Samoan
sauces palusaml and fatal. I'alu
saml Is made from the young shoots
of the taro plant, cocoanut milk
and sea water. Fal-ai Is evaporated
cocoanut milk. The milk Is poured
lDto a leaf, the ends and edges tied at
the top, and It Is then baked until the
water evaporates, leaving a thick
cream, which la very rich and quite
palatable. Faro is the root or bulb
of a plant which Is an exact counter
part of what we call "elephant ear" in
the United States and Is somewhat
like a yam, but Inclined to be stingy
or shreddy. The Inside of a baked faro
bulb Is very solid and of a bluish tint.
The flab needs no explanation.
Pork Is the supreme delicacy, accord

that pork can be afforded only on hol

of killing a pig is unique. The ani

laid upon Its back. Then two large,
heavy natives place a 2 by 4 scantling

eaten a farewell glimpse of my fine
supper being dumped bodily Into one
of those waiting baskets. I saw at
once the reason for that overflow meet-
Ing outside. The woman who sat next '
to me had taken a favorable opportu
nity when my back was turned to pick
up my mat and dispose of my meal to
her waiting relative, who had attend
ed the overflow meeting with a bas
ket. Then ensued a conglomerated scram
ble, and the feast was turned into a
scene of wild disorder as each native
strove to outdo his neighbor in secur
ing the most food to send home. The
strategy, flunk movements and tact
that they exhibited under the Inspiring
grab game so far provoked my comedy
bump that I was more than repaid for
the loss of my supper in watching
tbelr energetic struggles to obtain food
I was afterward informed that the
spectacle I bad witnessed was simply
the natural course of a Samoan feast,
that they always ended the same way
and I was indeed fortunate to bare
secured a taste or so of my pigeon.

London's Crystal Palace.
The Crystal palace whs a great pr'
ducer of superlatives in its early days,
says the London Chronicle. Vben
(jucen Victoria wrote of May day,
18Til, as "the greatest day in our his
tory, the most beautiful and imposing
and touching spectucle eves, seen," she
was referring to the whole idea and
effect of the exhibition, but "the beau
ty of the building and the vastness of
it all" were important factors in the
marvel which she relied upon to
astound hr uncle Leopold. When the
palace moved to the new site Herbert
Fpencer wrote: "1 have been once at
Sydenham. It surpasses even my ex-
i pectatlona, tbougD 1 naa seen it in
