It is one of the most productive plants in the world and feeds more people than any other known to man. It has been esti mated that more than a third of the human race depend almost wholly for their existeuce upon banana. The fruit is ample to sus tain life, and to sustain it in a very satisfactory manner, is demonstrat ed by the fact that the millions who live en practically nothing else get along well with it, and appear to be as strong and active as those who live on other kinds of food. Ex ' ! ' 1 1 1 ! ' 1 " ' I M 1 1 ! 1 1 1 The Harvest. List to the music that ripples and trickles H Out of the fields as the harvest proceeds. List to the rythm of swift-moving sickles Gnrnering grain that humanity needs. Music for millions the sweet song of reaping Ringing around the wide circle of earth; Drying the tears of the hungry ones weeping. : r Filling their being with " laughter and mirth. Chorus of plenty the sickles are singing, I ' Peans of praise for the bountiful grain; Louder and sweeter the music is ringing Over the valley and mountain' and plain. E'en to the uttermost parts of crea -tion Carries the music of plenty and peace; Filling the hearts of all men with elation. Bidding the horrors of famine to cease. i Clicking and clacking! The song o f the reaper Falls on our ears with a Icadence so sweet ! j Heart-touching chords that grow j richer and deeper Out from the billows of ripening wheat. Listen! The nations are catching the measure; Heart throbs keep time to the melody clear. Chords that the angels in heave'u might treasure AH when our harvest of plenty is here. Commoner.
