THE ADVENT OF THE BANANA.
"l"omn ia Boston Fifty Years Aco, Tt
Now Divides Favor with the Bean.
- A half century ago the banana, or the
plantain of commerce, was scarcely known
in Boston. In fact, with very few excep
tions, it was not recognized in this latitude
as edible fruit. Occasionally the master
of a vessel arriving from the West Indies
would send a few bananas to Taft of the
Coi-nhill, Ryan of the Stackpole, McGill of
i Echane Coffee House, and Parker
and otners. These fruit specimens were
generally placed upon the bar counters as
A little over fifty years ago Captain
liowers, of the brig Eliza Burgess, belong
ing to Benjamin Burgess & Co., trading
between Boston and Cienfuegos, landed
some half dozen bunehesof the red banana
species, fully ripe, fat and luscious look
ing. It had long been a custom with Cap
tain Bowers on leaving Cienfuegos to stow
his longboat full of bananas. From this
supply his cook could take what he want
ed to boil, stew and fry, and as the fruit
ripened the crew would help themselves.
But the occasion I speak of was the first
in which I ever saw bananas displaved in
the streets of Boston. Captain Bowers'
oldest son, then a small boy, with his
brothers, took three parts of bunches from
the brig on India wharf and passed up
State street on their way to their home on
Myrtle st reet, followed by a curious crowd,
to whom the sight was a novelty.
But to all the old West India traders the
plantain and banana had long been known,
not only as a luxury, but as a food neces
sity in southern latitudes. This was par
ticularly so in the Surinam trade, of which
Boston and Gloucester had the monopoly.
I was talking to Captain George Pousland,
I think the oldest surviving member of a
one time famous and extensive business,
upon the matter, I myself having been
brought up in the counting room of an old
Surinam firm. He remarked:
"When we first came to anchor in the
river we sent for the house frame, then
unbent the sails and unrove the running
rigging, and then the banana scow would
come alongside with a hundred or more
bunches. These we hung for use while
loading, cooking them in various forms
and eating them as fruit." Captain Pous
land says he has frequently put them
in bag compresses, placed them in the bold
on top of his cargo, and that when taken
out at the end of the voyage they had all
the desirable qualities of pressed figs.
Look at the difference, just fifty years
later. Let one go down any day to Cen
tral or Long wharves and see the large
foreign steamers discharging their full
cargoes of bananas by the tens of thou
sands of bunches. Boston Saturday Ga
zette. Liming Chaffinches.
A man comes along the road with a
small cage under his arm, tied up in a
handkerchief. In his hand he has a stuffed
chaffinch in the attitude of challenging.
Hearing the song of the chaffinch from
the trees, he proceeds to fix his stuffed
bird on a sloping portion of the trunk of
one of the elms. A couple of feet or so be
low this he places some bird limed twigs
of whalebone on the ground close by his
little cage. lie then gives out a rattling
challenge, answered at once by the bird in
the tree, whose quick eyes search in all
directions for his supposed rival.
He soon discovers the singer, .and his ex
citement at any other bird having the im
pudence to come and sing near his perch
is extreme. Once more the challenge rings
out; ho can liear it no longer. Down lie
dashes, strikes the stuffed bird, causing it
to sway up and dowu with the force of his
stroke, and falling on the limed twigs be
low finds himself at the foot of the tree a
I have known country lanes before the
bird protection act came into force, cleared
of chaffinches, to the great disgust and an
ger of the country people. Though obliged
for the protection of their crops to shoot
them at times, they are far from willing
to see them captured in this wholesale
way. Corn'uill Magazine.
A Dangerous Creature to Have Around.
Man has always treated the rat as a
pestiferous enemy, and human ingenuity
has been almost exhausted in devising
ways and means for his extermination.
The examinations I have made prove be
yond a doubt that he is the victim not
only of tuberculosis to which I have de
voted more attention than to other conta
gious diseases which afflict him but -t
pneumonia, pleurisy and various forms of
skin diseases which are transmitted by
the animal to man. Of these last the
most important is favus, or tinea favosa,
a well known skin trouble which the
household pussy readily takes from the
rat and soon transmits to the dog as well
as to the child that pets and fondles them.
Many a child whose head was well thatch
ed by nature has been rendered bald by
this loathsome disease, transmitted to it
by the household cat, who has caught it
from the infected rat. Dr. S. E. Weber's
A clergyman was dining with one of his
parishioners. His vis a vis was an old
gentlewoman very much interested in
missionary work. She had just received a
letter from "dear Brother Smith," a mis
sionary who was traveling through the
upper reaches of the Amazon toward the
wild tribes in the unexplored region east
of the Andes. "Poor dear man," she said;
"he Bays that the party is in such dreadful
distress. They can't land on either bank
because the savages are threatening. They
had to send the women back to civilization
because of lack of food. Why, only think
of it; all they have is a banana and a roll
three times a day." "How do they make
the rolls?" asked the clergyman. "Bo
they step on the banana skins?" Brook
