A BANANA TREE.
The Fxnlt Grows Small End Up and
la Cnt While Unripe.
Contrary to popular belief, bananas
do not grow on the tree as they bnug in
the grocery, but with the small end of
the fruit pointing upward to nil ap
peorances upside down,
There is probnbly no other fruit of
such universal consumption about
which 60 little Is known to tho average
person as the bannna. Something Ulso
100,000,000 bunches are annually eaten
In this country alone, but scarcely one
man In a thousand not connected with
the business knows what a banana tree
The fruit Is never allowed to ripen on
the tree, but is cut half or three-quar
ters "full" that is, half to throe-quarters
developed according to the dis
tance It is to bo shipped, and comes to
maturity by feeding from the stalk,
which contains a largo amount of sap.
Bananas cut in this way attain prac
tically the same size as if allowed to
remain on the tree, in which case the
bunch becomes too much of a burden
for its support and either falls or
breaks the tree and ripens on tho
After the Cutting the plantation is
"cleaned," which merely consists of
severing the standing trunks within a
few feet of the ground, and a new tree
comes forth from the remains of its
predecessor, so that the fruit In all
stages of growth Is to be found at the
same time and the yield Is continuous.
An Anecdote of Wordsworth.
A contributor to the London Specta
tor thus writes to that Journal:
Tour interesting article on "Vast-
ness and Isolation" recalls to my mind
Wordsworth's own interpretation of
the lines -
. Those obstinate questionings
Of sense and outward things,
Fallings from us, vanlshlngs ;
as reported to me by the late Professor
Bonamy Price; One day as he was
walking with the poet 'in the hills he
asked him .what he meant precisely, by
the words 'Tailings -from us, vanlsh
lngs." .Wordsworth's answer was to
this effect: "Sometimes I' find myself
in a mood In which tho whole material
universe seems to fall away. The sense
of outward things Is lost. Nothing re
mains but an immaterial self, detach
ed from all physical conditions. In or
der to get back Into the knowa world
of consciousness I have to clutch at
something-so,"; Here he grasped fho
bar of the gate on which they were
leaning at the moment: t was much
struck by the story at the time ,and
made a note of it . . 1 5 i "

portion and place It on top of the rice. ,
"After you have bad a little of every
thing you mince It up with a knife and
fork and mis it well with the rice and
then fall to with .a large spoon. A list
of the side dishes, with an ordinary
rice table, would read something like
this: Fried eggs, omelet, fried chicken.
broiled chicken, stewed chicken,.- beef
steak, sausage, fish, fritters, a mixture
of vegetables stewed with a mustard
