When potatoes wete Hist used for
food it was the "seed" or "a, pie"
tluit was used, and it was some time
before the tuber wfts found to bo the
ino«t delicious food. I'p to the end of
the seventeenth century the potato \\;is
out of the reach of people of moderate
incomes. Tt is recorded thai in IGR2
"potatoes were sold at 1 shilling (25
cents) a pound in the London markets,
but the sale was small because so many
people believed that the potato caused
leprosy and fever. Others declared that
they were endangering their «ou!s if
they ate the potato, since the tuber
was not mentioned it; the Bible.
The late Duke of Argyll in iiis his
tory of Scotland says that little or not'i
ing was known of the potato in Scot - i
land until long past the middle of the ]
eighteenth century. The Duchess of i
Buccleuch, in her "Household Bool<"|
for the year 1701, s))eal;s of the potato
as "'an esculent of great, rarity."
Hugh Miller, in his "Schools and
Schoolmasters," says that his maternal i
grandfather about the vear 1 740 used
to bring home in his pocket some three
or four potatoes as great rarities grown j
by the gentry, fo: he was a friend of
the head irardener at Balnagown castle.
Thomas Carlyle tells us that his fat lief
got (possession of four potatoes anil
knew so little about them that he hid j
them away for a possible time of want '
and that potatoes were saved to be j
eaten at Halloween. There is no doubt
that the Irish were the first people to
recognize the value of the potato tus a
staple article of food.—Youth's Com- 1
Easter Island Has a Wonderful One,
and So Has Java
Wonderful lakes are often found in- j
side the craters of volcanoes. One of .
these can be seen upon Easter island—
the island which bears wonderful re
mains of an unknown ancient people.
Inside a crater is a lake, near the bor
ders of which lie several unfinished
crowns "composed of tufa, evidently des- |
tined for the huge figures on the shores
of the island, but never completed.
And on this lake float many waterfowl,
one of which is said to be a goose un
known to science.
Another curious crater lake existed
until recently within the icebound era- :
ter of a volcano in New Zealand. TJie i
water was heated to boiling point, but '
a short time ago an eruption of more j
than common violence tossed the 'whole
lake into the air.
A most interesting crater lake can 1
still toe seen in Java in the volcano of
Papandajan, and it is possible to entdr '
the crater aud gaze down on the scene
below. Standing on the rim, one can I
see the vast seething mass of boiling |
mud. Ev6rv now and then a wave of
mud moves heavily along Hie sides of ;
the chasm, only to fall back into the
molten mass, ami here and there col- .
minis of sulphur thrown out of the lake I
of mud are gradually forming walls. It I
is indeed plea an; tc es ape from this
dismal indosure to breathe the free air
