Banana le City of Future. At the moutb of the great Kongo river, here as wide as an arm of the sea. stands the important city with the picturesque name of Banana. The Importance of Baimna lies In the fu* lure rather than the present. U Is the port of entry to that Immense wilder ness filled with a thouMu,nd undevelop* ed possibilities known as the Belgian Kongo. If Belgium cumes through the war with her African empire Intact liHnana will probably grow Into the leading Belgian colonial metropolis. At present It Is little more than a name aud a possibility. Banana consists of un excellent nat* ural harbor aud a village of a few score homesk-k Europeans. OonHlOer* Ing the Importance of Kongo trade even today It Is surprising that local development has not gone farther. There Is no adequate wharf or pier. There are no adequate unloading fa* cllltles. There are only stretches uf 8undy beach dotted with noble palms, great mangrove trees with their multi tudinous earth gripping branches, a pier of rotting abd battered piles and native canoes with their ebony oars men. The prospect is beautiful In a natural way, but there is a surprising lack of industrial development. TELLINO HIM. He wan one of those young men who never Heem to know when to home. She had tried yawning, but even that failed to get rid him. Presently a clock outside in the hall began to strike in low, deep tonea the midnight hour. Oh, 1 say, Miss Qreen," said the lute stayer, brightly, “is that an eight-duy clock?” Miss Uruen smiled coldly at him.

I To burn t!ie fuel in a gaso-1 line engine it must be carbu- retted or mixed with air and’ an electric spark must be ap- j plied to ignite the mixture. In the human engine the process is much more elaborate, since a very wide variety of C'ude foods is taken, refined, refftmed to food and burned slowly. A gasoline engine may be termed a (luick-combustion, high-tem- perature engine, while the hu man machine is a low temper ature and slow combustion en gine, which not only produces energy from its food, but lubri cates itself, keeps itself in re pair an<l constantly maintains an even temi>erature througli- out the four seasons. A man could not digest gas oline, nor could a gasoline en gine run on butter. Neverthe less, the two classes and func tions merge into each other. Science shows how alcohol is a curious illustration of this fact. An internal conibustion engine could be run on alcohol and it is known that this fluid cun be burned in the human body also producing a large amount of violent energy which is equiv alent to that obtained in a gas oline engine when the throttle is pulled wide open anil thei*e is no load to carry. Physicians say that «lrunkenness is, in ef- feel, racing the human engine beyond speed limits. Hxperience the Best Teacher.

Once, in crossing a meadow, I came to a spot that was filled with fragrance. Yet 1 could see no flowers and I wondered whence the fragrance came. At last! found, low down,close to the ground, hidden by the tall grass, innumerable little flowers. It was from these tiiat the fragrance came. 1 enter some homes. There is a rich perfume of lov<> that pervades all the place It may be a home of wealth and luxu ry, or it may be plain and bare. No matter; if it is not the luuise, nor the furniture, nor the adornment that makes this air of sweetness. I Io(>k closely. It is B gentle woman, mother <tr daughter, quiet, hiding self away, from whose life the fra grance llows. There is a won drous charm in a gentle spirit. The gentle girl in a hoint* may not be beautiful,may not Ih> ed ucated, miiy not be musU'al or an artist or “clever" in any way, but wherever she moves she leaves a benedi<‘tit>n. Her aweet patience is never <listurb- ed by the sharp words that fall about her. The children love her, because she never tires of them. 8he helps them with their lessons, listens to their frets and worries, mends their broken toys, makes dolls’ dresses, straighten out the tan gles and settles their littlequar- rels, and finds time to play with them When there are Bi<*kness in the home, she is the angel of conifttrt. Her face is alv/ays bright with the outshining of love. Her voice has music in it as it rains in cbeeeful ten derness on the sutferer’s ear. Her hands are wonilrously gen tie as their soothing touch rests on the aching head or as they minister in countlcs ways about the bed of pain. The lives that make the world 80 sweet Are shy, and hide like the hum ble flowers. We pass them by with our care less feet, Nor dream tis their fragrance, fills the bower And cheers and comforts us, hour by hour. —Michigan Christian Advj)cate gUICK TO CATCH ON. "Carl,” said a restaurant mana ger to a waiter, "why did ihai man from table No. 7 leave so sudden- ly?” “Well, sir,” said the waiter, “after sitting down he called for snusages and I told him we were out of them, but if he would wait a few tninutes. I’d get the cook to make sonic. When 1 went to the kitchen and called out the order, I accidentally stepped on the dog's tail, and, of course It yelped.

"The Chinese records go still far ther back, and oyster pearls were re ceived as tribute In the twenty-third century H. C. It Is probable that they were found In the waters of Ceylon iind India two thousand years ago, and the Greeks of course knew the pearl and recognized Its value.
