Origin of Fruit Panning
It is a singular fact that wo are i
debted to Pompeii for the great indus
try of canning fruit. Years ago, wlun,
the excavations were just beginning, a,
psrty cf Cincinnattians found in what'
hud bean the pantrv of a house, many
j ira of prcsorved figs. One was open
ed and they were found lobe freah and
good. Investigations showed that, the
fha had been put into jars in a-hwtecb;
state, anapertute left for the steam to
escape, and then sealed with wax.
Tint hint was taken, and the next
yetr canning fruit was introducud in
to the United States, the process being
indentical with that in voguoin Pom
peii twenty centuries ago. Tho ofcl
ladies in America who can tomatoe.i
aad peaches do not realiza that they
are icdebeted for this art to a people
who were literally ashes but a faw
years after Christ. Indkna Farmer..

They will not be grateful to Svcretar
Whitney for admitting that tho lids

is reduced to a narrow margin of 2

who is authority on all matters ca
netted with American shipbuilding,
hits completed the increased co-it of an
American ship at 10 or 12 per cent;
nnd this is mainly the result of paying
higher wages to skilled workmen."
