FOR THE HOUSEHOLD. 
BAKED BANANAS. 
South Americans say baked bananas are an excellent 
substitute for meat. They travel, fish and hunt solely up- 
on a banana diet. For those weary of meat or unable to 
eat it (during the warm weather nearly all of us would 
gladly do without it) it would be well to try the baked ba- 
nana. Each end should be cut off, the jackets being left 
on, after the fruit is washed. From twenty to thirty min- 4 
utes are needed for baking. They are placed upon the ta- 
ble and one served to each person, instead of his usual piece 
of roast or fowl. They should then be slit lengthwise and 
buttered, the butter greatly improves the flavor.-The 
Household. 
TO REMOVE A POSTAGE STAMP FROM AN ENVELOPE. 
"I fancy you will think my item is economical with a 
vengeance," said Becky Sharpe, "for I am going to tell you 
how to save a postage stamp that has been placed on the 
wrong envelope. Tear out the corner of the envelope, 
stamp and all, place in a little warm water, and, when suf- 
ficiently soaked, remove it from the paper, moisten it a lit- 
tle, rub it on the flap of the envelope you are about to seal, 
and place it in the upper right hand corner. If carefully 
done, no one will ever know that it was not put there in the 
first place." 
FRIED PARSNIPS. 
Clean with a vegetable brush and scrape. Boil gently 
for forty minutes, or until tender but not broken. When 
cold cut into slices one-third of an inch thick. Season with 
salt and pepper. Have equal parts of dripping and butter 
hot in a frying pan; lay in enough slices to cover the bot- 
tom of the pan. Fry brown on both sides. Serve hot.
