TIMING BANANAS It is generally known that hana na* are shipped while yet green and unripe, but few persolns are aware of the careful and elalrate time calculations required in setting out the plants and cutting olf tie fruit in order to insure the arrival ,of the bananas in proplr condlition, at their destination. When a plantation is begun the young plants are set out at certain periods so that they will produce at regular prefixed times during the year. A certain number of dlays be fore the arrival of a steamer the green fruit is cut and a close calcu lation of the time that will be con sumed in the voyage must always be made, else the bananas will be spoiled. Fruit steamers carry steam heating apparatus to insure a uni form temperature throughout the voyage. The ripening is calculated to occur only after the fruit has reached the retail dealer.-Wash ington Star. Unpopular English Statesman.
