Prince of Story Telldra Would Be In
terested in This Wonderful Tale
One of the big ocein liners waus sev
oral days out front New York oi a
trip across the Atlantic. It was (lint
-ner time, and those at tit table fell to
telling stdries about their expeiriences
at sea. Finally it was the turn f1. i
person who ha(d previously liin hoast
'Ing of his lineage. I le told this "yarn"
says fhe Youth's Companion.
"It happened a number of years
ago," sa1id he, "onl my fifteeith trip
across the ocean, whln we rat short
of some provisions, partivulirly eggs,
milk, fruit and fresh menit. We woye
very fortunate to lutvi on board a
,resourceful fellow namoed lirand, who
pulled us out of the difflicully li good
shapo. First lie went to tiit! hitch
way for eggs, but, as they were a lit
tle too old to eat, they were used for
cooking, and hie requestUl tle calptalin
to have the shi) lay to. Tihis opera
tion wa's repeated unitil we had eggs
enough to go round.
"Then, at Brand's suggestion, ti
captain fired a slii p's rocket into the
Milky Way, and all we haul to do was
to hold buckets and catch tihe milk as
it poured out of the hole inide by the
rocket. For a fruit sliply wo let
(own buckets over the side of he shipi)
qng plked up Qifough oian e'urranli
to last for a week. The next day we
had foul wedtther, wilcli provided us
with plenty of ducks and chickens.
Some of these we ate and others we
kept to replenish our egg Slupply.''
-"I wy gn tahat very trip." spok e ipl
a wag at the end of the table. "It was
the steamer Baltle, in October, 1i0,
New York to Liverpool. We also had
on board t fai-'sized goose, vhh wa.q
oierlooked in isome way. I'm sure they
never ate the bird, but I've wondered,
all these years until today whatever
became of it."
VALUABLE ARTICLE OF FOOD
Banana Really Is Not Appreciated
Anything Like as Much as It
Ought to Be.
The banana ts one of the most use
ful of all foods. When the population
of tle earth becomes overerowded, we
shall have to (at iore hannai s and
less bread. An ncre In wheat will
yield 900 pounds of food. An acre in
bananas will yield 120,000 pounds.
The banana resemhiwes lin composl
tion the mweet potato. Roth colitailn
11/ per cent of protein anA 20 per
cent carbohydrates. The hanana con
tains more starch than fruits of the
temperate cline. As It ripens, the
starch gradually turns to sugar.
The late Edgar Wallice Conable
s aid that the banana Is the only food
which may safely be eaten when it
has been pleked green. This. he ox
plained. Is heeaise the green hammas
draw nourishment oit. or the great evl
tral stem, wlitchi gradually shrinks and
withers.- A banana should never be
eateti until the skin Is beginning to
turn black. Some claim that they
should he entirely black. Ilowever, it
is not necessary to go so fair as that.
As they turn black the slarch turns to
sugar. Serape the white material from
beneath the skin before you eat the
"WVhere have you heen tonIght?"
she asked bitterly, as lit saunteredl in
ab~out 11 o'clock. "Was it business
again this evening?"
Hie made no reply, .hut sat down to
the cold supper thait was on the table.
"Aha, the difference In a short
time !" she wvent on. "~I have been try
ing .to solace myself tonight by readi
ing somte of your love letters. Here
is one," hioldinig It up, "that you w'rote
one month before we were marriced;
in this you say that you feel as if
you could eat me. Oh, the affection,
the passlotnate love expressed In those
words i It Is one month after mar

weep pearly tears, aind 50ob like the
throb of a steamboat engine, "only one

Novel, Bed for Paralytles.
One of the great prolietts in certain
cases of spinal woiuinds with paralysis
is hiow to move the patient sutilectntly
to make his bed and tend hits wounds
without Increasing hits sufferings by
nmovitng him. The newv hed~ solves the
prolhetm. Sutrroundling the bed just at
the edhge of the mat tress ls a rectan
gular framnew~ork of hollow mnetaul pIp
lng. Contnecting the' two parallel sides
are brotad bands oft webbitig stretched
across the mattress, anid on thmese the
patientt lies. The two short stales of
the tframnewor'k, the one tit the hetad of
the beda atnd the othier at the foot, are
connected by a geared wheel with a
vertical steel post so that by simply
turning a handhle at the head or foot
of the bed the friameawork, wvith the
patient lying on the wah"ng, can be'
liftedl off the mattress without hits po
sition being changed In the least.
