WHERE LICORICE CROWS.
How tha riant Grow and What It !
On the banks of tl e Tigris and the
Euphrates the licorice plant is chiefly
grown. These great rivers flow through
flat, treeless prairies of uncultivated
and nearly uninhab tated land. For
three months of ths year hot winds
blow and the temperature reaches 104
degrees, says the Boston Traveler.
For six months of the year the cli
mate is moderate acd salubrious, and
for three months b eak and wintry
the thermometer going down to 30 de
grees at night.
The licorice plant is a small shrub,
with light foliage, prowing to about
three feet high wh re its roots can
reach the water. I: grows without
any cultivation. No lands are leased
for the purpose and no objection is
made to its being cultivated. It grows
on red-earth soil, and also on light,
almost sandy, where the wood is best,
provided it lias plei ty of water and
the ground is not more than lifty
yards from the actual river or stream.
Tbe wood, after on:e being dug up,
grows better afterward. The time of
collecting is generally during the win
ter, but it is possible all the year
round. The root when dug is full of
water and must be allowed to dry. a
process which takes the best part of a
year. It is then sawed or cut into
small pieces from six inches to a foot
The good and souu 1 pieces are kept
and the rotten ones are used for fire
wood. It is then taken in native river
boats to Bussorah, whonce it is shipped
in pressed bales to Lc ndon and again
from there to America, where it is
used largely in the manufacture of to
bacco. The black licorice sticks sfbld in
drug stores come mostly from Spain
and are made of pure juice, mixed
with a little 6tarch, which prevents it
from melting in hot. weather. The
word "licorice" is of Greek origin and
means "sweet root."
They Forgot Their Tnct.
Women are called ihe tactful sex,
says the Buffalo Courur. Two women
came to the Court Street theater on
Saturday afternoon in search of a third
woman, whose father had died sud
denly. The matinee was in progress
and the curtain was up. Tha door
keeper bade them wait till the act was
over and then cautioned them against
breaking the sad newt, to their friend
while she was in the theater. "Just
tell her she is uaute I at home," he
said, "and get her out as quickly as
In a few minutes there was a mighty
noise from within and the two women
emerged, supporting tieir friend, who
was shrieking and throwing herself
about. She was tnken from the build
ing in a half fainting condition.
Donbtless the scene v as renewed at
frequent intervals on the road home.
Tbe awkwardness of the messengers
had added difficulties to their own task
as well as spoiled the pleasure of a
large number of peoplt.
"There!" said the doorkeeper in dis
gust, "that's just like u woman. Yon
can tell a man somethiig and he'll see
the point of it. But women go all to
pieces in emergencies."
