Anoiiiimoit. Tlir Banana. The bannna bclongs to tl e lily fam ily, and is a developed tropical lily, frtni which, by ages of eultivation, the sceds have bcen eliminated nnd the fruil, for whieh it was cultivated, grealiy cxpauded. In relation to the bearing qualities of this f rui , Hum boldt, who earlv saw the wonders of the plant, said that the ground that would grow ninety pounds of potatoes would also grow thiitv-three pounds of wbeat. Iml that the annie grrund would grow 4,000 pounda bananas, the pro- portions thus being, to whtal one hun dred thirty tltree toone, and to potatoes forty fi)ur to one. The bauana pos sesscs all of the t Stentlsls to tl c suste nance of life. The tavage of the sea isles and the jung!e owes what he has of pbysical strtngth to thi9 food. Wheal alooe, potatoes alono, will not do tbi?. When takeu as a bteady diel it is cookcd baked dry in the green state, )ulped, and b iled in water as soup, or cut in allces and frled. 1 do not know whose bcauty I admire the most thc ujtijestic cocoapalm, with ils heavy crown of great frlrged leaves, or the graceful banaoa wlth its great leaves, vshich are kix feet loiiir and tvvo feet wide. The leaves of the banana are tender, and the strong Winds of the tropica the hurrlcanea soon tear thc leaves in strips, thereby addiug to their grace and bcauty. The banana is a fruit that bear t and blrd, at well as man, aic fond of, and the owner, when be lives in a aparti ly-seltled COUntry, uiust needs proteot his plantation by'a feuce of snme tLorn p'nnt. Cor rtspondent GoldthicaiVt Qcoyraphical Magatbit, A Social Fox Unloosed, 'You do n t think that his rcal opinion; it was n mood, was it not?" "Oh, yes, it was a mood, and he had to 'unload.' " The listeuer was struek by the rcsponse. How rcuch of the fric tion, the annoyancp, of life eomes fiom the dirposition of most persons to " un load " their tnooils! In honits we sr e it constantly; an atiuos-phere of itnpa tience nffteting the whole family bc cause of thc mood of one; a diapoBltlou to critlclse, audden'y arising from the tbougbtleas mood of ouemunber. It afftcts buainesa relatiooa, social rela tions; oommittce mettlnga havc como to uaulit tecause sorne member was in a mood, and "uuloaded," notreal opin ions carefully tl ougbt out, but ibe mood of tl e moment. We must uot confuae bad temper and moods.. One is posilive, the t ther Degatlve. One can beaccounted for, for a bad temper is the one possession that (nnnot be hidden; like tunthlne bthiud tbfl clouda, tt forcea a consciousness on all beboldera; tbe elemeota of uncer taintymuatbe oocaldered in all iuter-cour.-e with the nian of bad lomper, Carry an un brella that will at swer for either raiu or aunabioe when deallog with blm; expect ihunder alwaya, and be pn pared for raiu. A person of moods, which are n ally nothing but phyaieal or mental conditions uncou trolled.it a barder pertou with whom toho'tl lotercourae than the bad-tem-pered person, Uaually tbe persou of iii(i(nl dot s not olTeud to the point of rouslng his owu conscicnce, tbougb 1 e may rouae your temper and givc you opportunity for cbaracter-building. Tbe bad-tempcred persou knows his wcak ness, and tloes not trade on a false con ceptiOO tf his character. But mtods are a cloak that the owr.cr wrapa about him, and either laugha at the arrows pointed at him, or, in hlgh aatiafactioD with himself, his cloak bocomes an ar mor from which ylance alike the rea 100, tbe eainestuess, tlie i Il'ection, of those about him. When onte those who must le mbjeot to I is moods have leamed to st paiatc the man from his temporary menta condition, they are able to wait until reasou bai re sumed its sway befoie beiug moved to aclion. ilo ds are the result of lack of lelf-conlrol, and tbould cause as much contrition as yielding to temper arouses. Temper finds an outlct, and escapes; but moods may hold a man a slave, yet social trainlng prevent him from yield ing to their txpresBion. Moods make slavts; they chanj;e a man's mental relation to the world. Tltty muke him atjraiitfor the morceut; they mtike enemies of frienda; they rob life of its purpose, at d when in possession play battledore and shuttlecock with lotric and love. Ilnppinens and freedom come when tbe mood is comjuered, whtther it be a result of the condition of the Itomach, tbe head, or the heart. 'hrittian Union. Too much boillna takes away the strength. $its of horferadish ani spicea, with a handful of stigar to ( ncl gallon of picklea, assist in prerervlou its strength, as wt H ns greatly improv ing its Mavor. (iinger is the moit wholcsomc fpice for piekles; cloves are strongest. then allspicc, cinnan o.i i n 1 mace. Mustard sccd is also vcry nico. If piekles are raised and pre pared at home in brine, an oaken cask should be UFed, and they abould be kiptwell eoveied, with plenty of sah at the bt ttom of the cask. In makinL' brine for piekles, it should be sufti dently strong to bear an egg. A pini OfiatttO tvery gallon of water is the usual proportion. We give a few re cipes: BWBKT CANTAtOUPK PlCB tX8. Take six sraall cantaloupcs ; quartt r and cover with vinegar, add to each quarl of vinegar thrr c pounds of sugar, a lca apoooful each of clovcs, mrcc and cinna mon, Drop in the melons; boil flftccn minutes. GtNOBfi BWUT I'lCKt.Ks. Out wat ermelon rinds in faney sliapes. Soak thcm in salt and wa'er thrce days. To eiglit pounds of rind, ut live pounds of sugar. Make a syiupof vinegar and lUgftr; spice well. Take tbe rind from tbe brine, boil it in strong ginger tea, let it sland over nigbt, and heat again. Take it out and drop it into the boiling sjrup; seal. PlCKXKO SWXXT AtttMi I'ee), quarter and core swcet Bpples, slick two cloves in each quarter and boil in a lyrup niade of one pound of sugar to each quart of vinegar. Add some sticks of ciunamou and whole allspice. When the apples are done, pour into a j,ir. l'our 0H the syrup antl add more to it if neceaaary, nnd boil anl pour over the apples hot for two mornings; then press under the syrup witli u plate, tie a cloth over, and they wlll ket p well in a eool place. BOTTLED GBKEN PlCKLKS. Put oue bundred small, freah cucumbors in salt water; let tbcni Btsnd three days. Boil ten minutes in balf a gallon of good vinegar, one ounce ench of mustartl seed, junl er berrit s and celery seed, a dozen green peppers, two pounds of brown sugar and a nnall liimp of alum. Pour tbe vinegar wbile hot over the piekles for six mornings, heatiug each time; mix a quarter of a pound of mus tard with the vinegar, Put tlie picklea in bottlea and seal while hot. Swekt Watermelon Rind Pick LE8. Weigh twelve pounds of rind and put into a kitlle, cover with salt water, boil balf an hcur, draiu and wash. Put one quart of strong vine gar and three pounds of brown sugai with spices into a kettle, let it come to a boil and drop in the rind, boil balf an hour, put into a stoue jar. Add two pounds of sugar to the syrup, with the juice and peel of two lemons. Boil tbick, and pour into the jar over the lind. This is one of thc mCBt delicious of sweet piekles. Ripe cucumbers may be used in the same way. Split them open and remove the seeds. TOMATO AND ONION PlCKLES. Oae pcck of tomatoes, twenty-four onions, quarter of a pound of white mustatd seed, four tahlcspronfuls of ground ginger, thrce of mustard, onc ounce ol who c allspice, balf an ounce of cloves, two lablespoonfula of lilack pepper aud two of sugar. IY.ro and slice the toma tocs thin, and chop the onions One. Aftt r the tomatoes are slict d, pack t! eru in a jar, putling a thick lajerof fali bttween each layerof tomatoes, cover, and let them stand for twenty-four bouts; then pour off thc l'quor, and put the tomatoes, onions and spice into a large kettle in alUrnate layers. Otver tlie picklea well with vinegar, put cover on the kettle, and C( ok gently for ihree-quartera of an hour aftor "it has come to a boil; tfthe pickle sicms too lhi( k, ald a little more vinegar. Cuci'Mum: PlCKLES. Soak cucum bers takeu from the vlnej put in a ket tle aud cover with vinegar: add to each gallon balf a teacupful each ( f mustard seed, cilery s ed and bruisid ginger root, two lablepoonfuls of black pep per, balf an ouuce each of cloves uud mace, one pod of red pepper, a teacup ful of grated borteradUb, and three pounds of brown sugar. L t it boil, put it into a jar, and U t it slaud over nigbt: pour the apiced vinegar back into ibe ketile aud let it come to a boil; iheu pour it over the cucumbers again. Ttuy will be rcady for use in a week. Another way: Wash the ( iicumbers well and place thetnin stone jars; to evcry gallon of vinegar add balf a teacuprul of salt, one ounce eacb of ginger root, allspice, cloves, cinna mon and black p pper. 13oil tbe vine gar and spices togcther for three morn ings and pour it over the piekles hot; cover them cloit'ly, They will be rcady for use in three days. Jurul Life. fcjcrtiscmcnts. Piekles. Tnere is nothing that adds more to the relish of the winter bill of fare than a nice lot of piekles, and tboi e who can raise everything neeessaiy for tht in cau have a great variety. Never, on any consideration, use biass, cojiper or bell-metal kcttles, the verdigns pro duced on them by the vinegar being of a most poisonous uaiure. Keltleslined with porcelnin are the l est. When it is necessary to boil vinegar, do so in a stone jar on the flre. Tjie also woodeu sooons and forks. A small lump of alum added to the viuegar iu which piekles are sealed renders them crisp and tender, aud, if, covered witli cab buge or grnpe leaves, a freih green color will be iupartid. In makiog piekles, cider vinegar is best. The viu egar should only boil five or six miuutes. Blackberrles, BPICED BLACKiiKUiiiKs. Tbese are apl etiziug with meat, With nine pounds ol bsrrles, use three of sugar, one pint of vinet;ar, one tablcspoonful of cinnamon and one of cloves. Cook balf an hour. Blaokbbbrt I'ik. a blackberry pie which cau be enjoyed tven by a dyspeptic is made as fo.lows: Fill a laige puddiug dish with berries which have been carefully looked over. Add a cupl'ul of granulated augar,and gill of water, then sprinkle Hour over the top. Cover with a thin, delicate crust aud buke one hour. Pbbsbbvino Blacebbrbies There aie numerous methods of preseiving blackbetriea, tbe simplest being to can them, u-inga quarter of a pound of sugar to a pound of fruit. They pre serve their shape aud appearance best when cooked in the eans, tbe syrup being made separalely and poured into the 0na just before they are ready to take up. BlACBBBBBY COBDIAL. A black berry eordial whieh will keep sweet wilhout brandy or wine, is made in this way: Simmer the berries until they break; strain, and to each pint of juice add a pound of white sugar, ont-half ounce ciuuamon, one-fourth ounce mace, two teaspoonfuls exiract clovcs. Boil twenty minutes, and do uot botlle until cool. Orclmrd and Qurdin.

M. De Blowitz, in Ilttr pec's Ma'jazine. Caught a Battler Barehanded, An e'.t ven-yciirs-old youngstcr of Monroe, Orange county, N. Y., is the Qrt person known in that section to have caught and ma le priaoner a live rattler, wilhout havlng been bitten. (Jue day last week the little fellow took it iu his head to go up aiuong the hills, on a plcasurc trip. Ile had no com panions with him. The entire region surrounding Mombesia Lnke is wlld, hillv, and covered with woods, among which are Innumerable rocks. The region is infetted with ratllesnakes. blsckheads, and copperheado, as well as oihers of the harmless varletiss, The only suakes cousidercd polsoOOUS are rattlcrs and copperbeads. The little fellow was tramping nround thc rocks with no Special purpose, and suddeuly ran BOrOSS a large rattli snake that was lying. motionless on n tlat rock near some hushes. Without s-topping to consider the danger of a dose approach to the serpcnt the boy walked cautiously up and sei.cd it around the botly just behlnd the head. The snake fquirmed aml attempted to release itself I ut the boy held on with grit aml dc tc rmination until the snake c oiled itself about the boy's body. With the snake in that posltlon the boy walked back to the village, and caused constcruatiou among the natives when be approacbed stvtral that he knuw with the snake still squirming about him and its mouih open to its fuil capacity. When the boy was told that he was holdiug a deadly rattlesuake in his hand he sud deuly got alarmed, and would have re- leased his hold had he m t been warned to cling tight and svoid being hiiten. The snake was linally secured around the head and rendercd belpless, after which he was uncoiled and placed in a large box with a glass wiudow in it. On maklng an examination it was tound that the snake had nine ratlles and a bulton. The snake is still con Qued iu the box and is on exhibition iu one nf ihe village stores. Tho way tho people account for tho boy's escape is from the fact that rattleanakes -Ind their tkins iu August, at which time they are very stupid and psrtlv bllnd. The little boy was barefooted at the time and that may have saved him. Oa beariug the account of the boy's daring exploit his mother took him to a doc toi to be examined, thlnking he mlght havc been bitten on the body, but she was assured that he was all right.
