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

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.

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

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.
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

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

cover them cloit'ly, They will be
rcady for use in three days. Jurul Life.
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.
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

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

A knout is uot rnerely a lash or wbip,
but an ingenious atnl refloed it stru
ineiit of torture, consisting of a very
long aml narrow strip of leather with
thin edges. This leather is first boiled
and soaked iu a preparation of iron, iu
order to make it hard aiul heavy. Be
fore allowing it to harden, howt ver, the
thin edges are doubied over along the
whole lenctb of ilie knout, and in aucb
a manner as to make them very sharp,
so tbat the knoui on it ct DCave side is
like two loug, flexible kuives. The
knout falls (on its concave side) on the
naked back of tbe vlctim, and tbe tharp

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

boy held on with grit aml dc tc rmination
until the snake c oiled itself about the

village, and caused constcruatiou

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
