Abstract: 
Culture. The harvest of Madeira bananas. Banana plantations fill long stretches of land. The banana tree is flowering. The bunch from the collection of fruits begins to grow. A few weeks later. The bunch has reached maturity. The harvesting. Each tree provides one bunch. The banana tree is cut to facilitate the growth of a new one, already shooting out from the earth. The bunches are put in a pile. Chariots take them and drive them to the port. Great Projects. The Eiffel Tower, for its 35th anniversary, has just been repainted. The workers charged with this task do not fear vertigo. Suspended in the air by a cable, this painter shows contempt towards the danger. This dangerous job requires that those who execute it have the qualities of acrobats. Zoology. The Tarentaise Goat. The raising of goats of the Alps is done in the valley of Bourg St. Maurice. A type of lactating goat. Each goat undergoes a detailed examination. The mouth is subjected to special care. New inventions. Agricultural tractors with functioning chains with gas generating engines. The gas engines are fed with charcoal. The trials are conducted on sodden and uneven land. Ways and customs.
