THE PIOCHE RECORD PAGE TWO LIKE THEIR BRITISH FORE EARS. Southern Mountaineers a Delight to the Antiquarian. The antiquarian finds endless lnter est in the British survivals among the people of the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky mountains, which are readily traced when one begins an intelligent search. Here Is the pattern in a "Bed klver" which you have seen, perhaps, in English tapestry, and which must h&ve been transmitted from mother Co daughter for two or more centuries. Sere is a snatch of song that you "ill not easily find In a book, but hich harks back to circumstances of Inglish town life quite remote from k experience of th slnarer. Prof. Shaler of Harvard once found a "man in Wise county, Virginia, hunting with an English cross bow! Of course Le owned a rifle, as well, but powder was hard to get, and he had not lost the tradition of the art by which the cross bow had been made famous among his British forbears. We say British because the Scotch and Eng lish strains "are everywhere mingled in the mountains. The traveler stop ping at a lonely cottage may hear the mother quiet an unruly child by say ing: "Behave now, son, or Clavers will get you!" It is doubtful whether the woman knows anything of the . bogey she thus conjures up to "bend the wretch in order," but Bhe is really referring to Claverhouse, the Scotch rough rider who harried the Covenan ters In ancient days! Berea Quar terly. 8Ixty Different Kinds of Bananas. To most persons in the temperate ones a banana is a banana. But the truth la that there are over 60 known varieties of the fruit, with as zraat. or greater variation in character as Jn the different kinds of apples. Hawaii Is said to have something over 40 dis tinct varieties of the fruit, most of which have been introduced by the whites. Some of these are of extreme ly delicate and delicious flavor, while other kinds are used, if at all, only when cooked In various ways. There is scarcely a city house lot, or country "kuleana" or homestead which does not have a clump or two of bananas, vhlch grow with practically no care, riew'plants, or suckers, shooting up to replace the ones which have fruited and been removed. t LET US SUPPLY VOU WITH STOCK THE ONLY PAPER PUBLISHED Subscription HAD NOT IDENTIFIED COLONEL. Soldier's Explanation, However, Was Hardly Flattering. Eugene Walter, the young play wright, discussed in his apartment the failure of "Paid In Full" in Lon don. ' 4 "The. London critics," said Mr. Wal ter, "praised my drama without a dis senting voice. From Mr. Walkley of the Times down, they deluged me with praise. But the public" would not come to the Aldwych theater. The public was unflattering as the African sen tinel. - "A, French sentinel in Algeria, you know," Mr. Walter explained, "had for colonel a very tall, lanky, round-shouldered man. "This round-shouldered colonel one night wa3 making a quiet inspection. Passing the sentinel, he found, to his rage and indignation, that he was not challenged. So he returned to the man and roared: "'You didn't challenge me!' "'N-no, sir,' faltered the sentinel, sa luting. , " 'Well, why didn't you?' the colonel demanded. "'Excuse me, sir said the senti nel, but I thought I beg your par don, sir i thought you was a camel.' " Bad Eggs in Commerce. Bad egg dealing is a business in it self in England.' AH bad eggs go to tanners. These eggs are carefully opened by hand and the whites are separated from the yolks unpleasant work, but work that no machine can do. The yolks are mixed with flour and salt, and this dough is sold to tlia leather men, who size and dre:s hidts with it. The whites are used in the sizing of fine paper. ' Care mubt be taken that they are properly sepa rated, as the least bit of yolk in the whites would cause a yellow streak on the paper's surface. Appreciation. "You don't object to these investiga tions of the affairs of your great mo nopoly?" "No," answered Mr. Dustin Stax. "They're a great deal of help In enab ling me to catch up with details of my business that might have escaped my attention. .
