Banana Wisdom. f MANY USEFUL HINTS REGARD ING AN EVERYDAY COM MODITY. f wonder if it is because bananas are cheap, like the homely herring, that people do not realise all the possibilities in them. Bananas have 110 drawbacks. They are nourishing, they are fattening for children, they are digestible. Perhaps they are unpopular in the kitchen because they are not under stood. The best way of converting cooks. is to tell them what the banana can do. Here are a few recipes : SHAJtf STRAWBERRIES. Take half a dozen bananas and mash them to a pulp. Keep" on mashing and adding a little castor sugar until the fruit is like clot ted cream, and quite smooth, with out a lump remaining.

Ha moved about the room for a few moments, purposely making noiso enough to be heard be low. On somo hooks behind a cur tain bung various garments belong ing to the doctor, and fiom these he solected a linen jacket of the kind worn on the island, and a soft hat that concealed his features. In ad dition he took at random a dozen other articles of clothing, and tossed them on the bed. Then ho blew out the candles, and in the semi-darkness of the room he put on tho jackc-t and hat, removed his shoe?, and thrust them into his side pockets. Next he reconnoltered from the two windows, watching and listening for a time at each. The street tlint led towards Government House seemed empty, though here and there a light Hashed across it. Down in the little court thero was an unbroken gloom and silence, and the town itself was far less no...

CHAPTER XXXIV. IN STRANGE COMPANY. At that terrible moment, when it seemed th.it the slightest delay must mean capture and death, Dick's cour age and nervo did not fail him. By a quick dash into tlio" shrub he might escape, but ho spurned tlio chance while his task, was jet unaccomplish ed. With splendid heroism, ana with out pausing, to look over his shoul der, he thrust the blazing match into the nil-soaked heap of wood. Only a touch was needed.

First Come, First Served. ——+ Lord Charley Beresford once landed hurriedly at San Francisco, or sonio other port in the States, and was at once asked to dinner, within an hour or two, by a deputation of prominent men, who would take no denial. He appeared at the banquet in morning dress, his hosts all being correctly attired, and commenced the speech of the evening by apologis ing- profusely for his apparent lack of good manners in thus afpearing before them improper^' dressed, but said he would take leave to explain.

Their master one morning called them both before him that he might hear what they hnd to say. The cook pleaded that the coach man was lounging about the kitchen the best part of the morning. yet he was so ill-natured that he would not fetch the cream for her, though he saw she had not a moment to spare. The coachman said it was not. his business. "Very well," said the master; "hut what do you call your busi ness ?" "To take earn of the horses and clean and drive the carriage," re plied the coachman.

Everything had been wet through long ago.

How Kaffirs Bank. The Kaflirs of the northern dis tricts of Cape Colony have a cui* ious.systeun of banking. Periodically the natives come south to trade iu the several villages and towns in large numbers, stay with, the Boers for . a time, then return! .Their banking facilities arc very primitive, and consist entirely of banks of deposit alone, without banks of discount- or issue, and they have no cheques. But still they enjoy banking privileges, such as they are. From those who trade, of their own number, they select one, who for the occasion is to be their ban ker. He is converted into -u banto of deposit by. putting all the money of those whose banker he is into a bag, and then they sally" forth to the stores to buy whatever they want. When an article is purchased by any of those who arc in this bank ing arrangement, the price of the ar ticlo is taken by the banker from this deposit money-bag, counted several times, and then paid to the seller of the article, after which all the...
