Messrs. Hammer & 'Burrows are now
at work putting their dryer ln order
for the season's work, says the Dem
ocratic Times. One of the improve
ments that they expect to put ln Is
a coal-burning furnace, the object be
ing, to secure a more even degree of
heat for 'the dryer, thus producing a
better grade of dried fruit. Another
decided Innovation, that will be ap
preciated by consumers of prunes, Is
the doing away with the lye bath,
that is used for cracking the skins
of the prunes. While all the fruit
that is treated to tho lye bath la
thoroughly washed ln water before
drying, yet there cannot but be small
partirles of lye adhering to the fruit.
A's lye Is a poison, even this small
quantity is a menace to the health
of all those who use fruit prepared
by that process. As prunes cannot
