New York, Oct. 28 Phelps. Dodge

since 1!02 has been in the hands ot
the Moore-Reid party. In the near fu
ture Arthur Cur is James, vice presi

Moore and Daniel G. Reid will re

lieves that while Reid has sold a lot

FLOWERS AS FOOD.
the Native Eat Bassia Tree
In these days one would hardly cnll
n dinner of rosebuds a feast, nor
should tve be Inclined to accept an in
vitation to dine on the blossoms of the
pumpkin vine. Yet come Indian, like
the old Aztecs, used to esteem these
flowers, when properly prepared, a
So. in the same way. do natives of
nirny parts of India depend for food
u;v.n the Mnssoms of tbe basslu tree.
They do rot need even to cook the
Cowers, but make a good meal of them
raw. These blossoms are described n
nweet and xlckly in .odor and tnste.
Tbey are sometimes dried In th sun,
when they are kept and sold in ba
r.nars as a regular article ef diet.
The trees are so highly esteemed that
the threat of rutting down their bashl
trees will generally bring nn unruly
tribe to terms. Thin Is perhaps not t
be wondered at when It Is considered
that a single tree will yield from V)
to 40O pounds of flowers The Parsees
rook the flowers nnd also make sweet
meats of them.
"Nobody would be Inclined to deny
j th:it smoked fish and smoked meat ar
agreeable varieties 1n our Mil of fare,
! but few. perhaps, would feel ready to
! plead guilty to a taste for smoked flow
' ers. And yet, when we give to the
j clove Its well earned place among fin-
vorlngs we are making use of
smoked flower bud. The buds grow on
I a small evergreen and are plucke.
j from the ends of the branch before
j they expand. Then they are dried In
! the nn and-smoked over a wood fire
to give tbem the brown color. Phila
