i Publlshod Evow Friday. MT. VERNON, : KENTUCKY. BANANA PLANTATIONS. -. Tlio Onco I)rn)lnil Vrnlt Now n .Source of Im oine. Tho bmiiiiui and the plantain have always formed ono of the staple foods of tropical countries. Improved communication and an ever-increasing demand for the banana here, gave, some fourteen years ago, a gruat impetus to its cultivation. The sugar-planter of tho West Indies was gradually but huroly being ruined by beot and bounty-fed sugars. The banana was with Jiim a tree to bo hated. In Jamaica every ,1rfggro had a few planted in the smullclearing round his hut, and a bunch of tho fruit would feed him and his family for a week. When to provided ho saw no need to go out .to work in tho cane fields. The planter had foreseen this, and with tho abolition of slavery disappears tho banana, plantain and cocoa-nut trees. At first the banana-walks wore made any whero on tho estate; generally on abandoned which cost less to clean, but experience has taught the planter that certain sites suit tho treo best. Tho best place for a banana-walk is a valley or hillside having a western prospect. Tho large JcuVcs attract the dow. nnd in the 'v mw" tiiv ah Kiiv e?itrly..mornings a . .,. ,. .. i ..r. ..r l !.V patch of bananas lookkyJv3,if it VGVQ encrusted with diainoncfThese tlroi: of dew are soon ovap'tiriited by the morning sun, but if til" 'trees are shaded the plant absorbs most of the' moisture. , Tho ground for tho intended, patch thoroughly cleaned and "stubbed." Tho "suckers" mu&t be obtained, as the banana is only known to heed in ono small spot on the earth, tho Andaman These "suckers" from tho root of the banana-tree' when it is ono year old. They are torn from the parent tree and may be shipped long distances, being hardy iud long-lived. About 400 or 300 troes are planted to tho acre, and now the chief caro is to see that the weeds, and especially tho creeping ones, are kept down; otherwise they will soon choke tho young plant. Tho banana treo 'bears fruit in its .first ycai Tho bunch hangs down on tem which springs) from the treo .under its frond of leaves. This sctonds beyond xhe fruit, ending . i i - o cone, uior wnicii Jka F7 ii..r rm wmie ep.pu'sirs one 10 tny equiVi,..U.P. Oi thorough rain-drenching. As each bunch becomes full, but still green, the tree is chopped down with one or two blows from a "machete," great caro being taken that tho fruit is not bruised. The bunch is then carried on tho head of a negro to the dray that carries it down to tho port. Tho bunches arc packed between layers of "trash," and on being unloaded from tho drays are sorted into "nines," "eights," etc.; that is to say, into "hand bunches" of Uioms numbers. A "hand' of bananas is one of tho small portions that go to make up a bunch. Hummus are paid for with ready money on tho beach, according to the number of "hands" and the thno of year, hi January, Felruary and March they cost from 12 to 18 cents a bunch; in April, May and Juno from -18 to 72 cents. In a good year a bunch of bananas costs 4 cents to land at tho beach, all expenses included. Tho planter has his risks, however. A hurricane will in an hour destroy every treo, and for that year tho cultivation is, of course, a dead loss. In Jamaica and Honduras at least the thefts by the nogroes form a largo item', handed in New York tho bunches bring from 30 cents to $2, according to tho timo of year and tho size of the bunch. As soon as tho banana begins to give a good shado tho spaces between the trees are planted with cocoa, a treo that must have shelter from tho sun. Almond trees and tho ilamboyant live also planted to give the shado for the cocoa when tho bananas have ceased to bear profitably; that is, in three or four years. N. Y. Tribune. It is told that ono day, going down to (Gloucester, Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes sat in tho front seat of tho car and entertained a with some of his brilliant talk. A countryman, sitting in tho little corner scat before thorn, overheard tho conversation, and finally loaned over, took the autocrat's hat, looked at tho number inside, then hi own, and said, very demurely: "I read something in the paper the other day about tho size of great men's heads, and I thought I'd liko to know the sio of your'n. JJut what bothers me is my head's the biggest of the two!" Manuring in tho hill is a triileliko heaping manure about tho stem of a fruit tree. Hotter spread it out as far as the roots extenU. OF GENERAL INTEREST. A frog sixteen inches long is reported to havo been captured at Urlando, Fin., during a recent heavy rain. The sale of eyestonos is brisker in March than in any other month. Tho "stones" are the mouthpiece of a certain species of shell which i gathered in great quantities on tho Venezuela coast. Lake Superior is said to bo tho most ancient of tho groat lakes, dating back to Cambrian, and, it may be, earlier times, and that it formed in other ages one of the sources of a great river system, terminating en tho Atlantic seaboard. A toucher in a public school not a hundred miles from Philadelphia received the following excuse from an overgrown boy, who had been absent a day: "Miss Pleas exguso Frank for bean absent yesterdiiy as ho had to help his father kill tho other hog His Mother." An Englishman has produced a pieco of mechanism containing four hundred figures representing horses, cannon, artillery, infantry, and a band of fifty-two men, each with an instrument. A tiny wind-mill turned by tho current from burning candles furnishes tho power to move all tho figures automatically. Tho average Russian is said to drink from ton to twolve glasses of tea a day. Every Russian merchant has a tea-urn in his counting-room, and tho lawyer or mechanic goes out to his cafe for tea as often as the German for beer or tho Lrenchman for wine. At tho cafes at all hours of the day nnd night one can sco great crowds of people hipping tea. As the north-bound express train pulled out of the station ntXorman, I. TVJ $'$cently tho passengers wero treated tho sight of a lynching by the citizorfqf that town. The (people had captured' O; horse thief and taken him to a telegraph pole.ncnr tho railroad to bang him. It was, daylight, and none of tho lynchers, wore disguised. Just as the train started the man was strung up. Tho Surrogate of Suffolk County. New York, 'lately admitted to probate a rather novel will, that of Richard L. Peters, of Southold, fL. I. It directs the inveslment.of -a sum of money, tho income of which shall be used in keeping his grave covered with growing flowers. Another request is that a sum bo invested at compound inton t for one hundred years. Thjw'lncipaj ..l :.nef ul, "1 . ' r ' time n'Tu to i3e usTkI to ereci, a monu ment and celebrate the centepnial Of his death. -i k In Egypt ladies used to carry their devotion for their feline pots so far as to go into mourning for them when they died by shaving off their eyebrows ! Favorite cats used to bo embalmed, too, and I know of no quainter or more grotesque objects 'than tho mummified cats which may be seen at tho IJritish Museum. Even now cats are held in high esteem in Egypt, and in at leaht one of the Khedive's palaces at. Cairo there is a free ration distributed every day to any cats that may care to apply. Tho Rritish Postmaster-General reports that last year ;591.GC'' person" in this country sent money by postal order to relatives in Great Britain and Ireland, tho total sum amounting to .'?.r,2,;0,000, while 78.il 10 persons in Canada sent over $1,000,000 in tho same way, and tho total sum sent in that way from Australia, tho United States and South Africa in tho year was over 0,000,000, or an average of over 30,-000 a day, coming from G3.,2.j0 persons. A writer thinks this shows what filial regard tho British race has or tho parents left behind. "Notes and Queries" tolls that .ards, which wero invented at the close of tho fourteenth century, wero originally very different from in ue at present. In shapo they wero square, and instead of suits of spades, clubs, hearts and diamonds, their marks were rabbits, pinks, roses and flowers of columbine. Tho figured cards were very prettily devised, a queen riding on horseback with a rabbit beside her, marked tho queen of rabbits or of club. A rustic-looking man. dres.od and standing in a strange altitude, with a pink bolide him. signified tho knave of pinks or diamonds. At a hearing before tho Committee of Education of tho Michigan Legislature on tho subject of the cflect of tobacco on youths, It was stated that in reply to circulars two hundred doctors had each cited ono or moro cases of boys being dwarfed, made insane, killed or rendered incapable of speech. The professors of Michigan University tiMiiicd that otherwise bright student's were made dull and stupid by the us-o of the oigaretta, and that in many cases tho povor of hearing had been seriously affected. Tlioy said that in nine casos. out of ten ilio regular use of cigarettes by boys wouFd result in the loss of will power. "EDITOR'S BACK STAIRS." Tho InturoMtliiR VIous "f tlio Xmto Dr. T. CJ, Hollum'. Tho columns of tho newspapers appear to bo Hooded with propiictary tncdiclno As wo cast our eye over them, It brings to mind nu nrttclo that was published by tho lute Dr. Holland in Scribner's Monthly, llosnys: "Nevertheless, it is a fact that many of tho best proprietary medicines of tho day weio moro successful than many physicians, nnd most of them, it Bbould bo remembered, wero at first discovered or used in actual medical practice. When, however, nny shrewd person, knowing their virtue, and foreseeing their popularity, secures and advertises them, then, Jn the opinion of tho bigoted, all virtuo went out of them." Is not this absurd! This great "inX, appreciated ttio real merits of popular remedies, nnd tho of thoso that derided them because public attention swxfllled t0 lll nrticlo and tho evidence jftTr wires. It the most noted piiysluMsh id announce thatho had made i'.tt3(Bi any certain organ or of tho body.ornmko his sign larger than tho codo sue, though ho may havo practiced medicine and been a leader in all medical couusels, notwithstanding all this, If ho should presume to advertiso and decline to givo his discovery to tho public, ho would bo pronounced u quack and although ha ni.vy havo spent his entlro life and all his available funds in perfecting his investigations" Again wosuy, "absuid." H an ulcer is found upon "one's arm, and Is cured by some dear old grandmother, outside of tho code, it will bo pronounced by tho medical profelon an ulcer of little importance. IJutif treated under the code, causing sleepless n lits for a month, with tho scictit went, viz., plasters, washes, ipT. it i morphine, arsenic and othc JMubbtitnrcs, given to prevent blood poisoning or do idea pain, and yet the ulcer beromes malignant, and amputation is made necessary at last to save life, yet all dona according to the "isms" of the medical code, this is much moro gratifying to tho medical profession, and adds moro dignity to that distinguished order than to bo cured by tho dear old grandmother's remedy. This uppears 1 he a sovere arraignment, yet we believe t it it expresses the true standing of the ir lic.il profession in regard to remedies disuHi red outside of their special "isms." One of tho most perplexing things of the day is the popularity of certain remedies, cspocial'y Warner's Safoj Cure, which wo lijf lor sale everywhere. Tho physician oAc highest standing is ready to concede itsTen uiid sustain the theories the proprietor0. ) made that is, that It benefits in most pi tho ailments of tho hu man system becausoit assists inputting tho kidneys in proper condition, thereby aiding la throwing off tho impurities of jjib blood, while othorsfwth less honesty and and nro willing to sco their patient dio scientifically, and according to tuo code, rather than havo him cured by this giyat remedy. "" , .V Ytt we notice that tho popularity of tho medicine continues to growvear by year. rhodiMcoveiiir comes boldly beforotho merits, and''prchum8 them our opinion much moro an who, par- fVB :atasliophe, aJJiJLiniiueq to seta bone jf an arm ofa finger, which ho does with jreat dignity, yptnrery soon .after takes tho dberty to chiQbrthe editor's back stairs at 2 )'cloclc in tho "morning to have it announced .n tho morning parcr that "Dr. was in attendance,'; thus securing for his scnetit a beautifuViJnd freo advertisement. I Wo shall leave it to our readers to say which is tho wiser and moro houorablo. M. Cakxot, President of tho French Republic, is a whist player of whist players.
