Value of Slewed Frnlt.
Stewed fruit of any description is far
more beneficial than the majority of
fresh ones, and the despised prunes
will agree with the woman who has
dyspepsia, as well as the one with a
strong, healthy stomach. They may be
eaten, too, as a rule, either before a
manioc, and that alone. It Is a plant
particularly adapted to wet. marshy
soil, says the author of "In Remotest
Harotselund." It takes two years to
arrive at maturity, and while growing
requires very little attention.
The root wheu full-grown Is about
the size, and has very much the ap
pearance of a German sausage, al
though at times it grows much larger.
One shrub has several roots, and the
extraction of two or three in no way
impairs the growth of the remainder.
When newly dug It tastes like a
cheHtnut, and the digestion of the pro
verbial ostrich can alone assimilate It
raw; but when soaked In water for a
few days until partly decomposed,
dried on the roofs of the huts and
Btamped, If forms a delightfully white
soft meal, far whiter and purer than
the best flour. Then it is beaten Into
a thick paste and eaten with a little
results for the complexion and health.
Stewed apples, pears or any of the
smaller fruits are also a benefit, if not
too sweet. Taking figs la such quanti
ties, especially before retiring, does not
agree with the average person, as the
uablt is supposed to, for the concen
trated sweetness is really bad, if the
stomach Is sour or there Is a surplus
or acm in the blood. Then, too, the tiny
seeds in them are difficult for anv hut
strong stomachs to really digest and

Another way of eating this native

There was a peculiar sound from the
drection of the woods as the member
of the Birdlovers' Society sat In the
window of her friend's country home
one summer afternoon.
S '6 quickly took her small "Bird
Ouioe" from her ever-present bag, and
rapidly turned the leaves, At last she
paused with a smile of satisfaction,
and listened, with her finger between
two leaves of the little book, till the
sound came again.
When It was repeated an expression
of doubt flitted across her features, but
still she was hopeful.
"You probably know many of the
bird notes, living so near the woods
and In such a quiet spot," she said to
her friend. "Can you tell me what
bird that Is?"
"That," said her friend, briefly, "Is
