Canning fruit i a very efficient
muaiia el prcw rvini? It in a whole
aiune condition, but it ia a proceu
which di'iiiaiiiln careful tnariBgcment
lo make it r. aiieceaa. Tin cans are
aonietimo. uaed, but gluaa jaia are now
so cheap and are so much better that
they Hhouhl always be preferred. In
the end they are cheaper, an they last
much lotigiT than tin. Tin rarm ar
liable to injure the flavor alo. There
an acveral excellent kimla of fruit
jars on tlio market.
In canning fruit two things must be
most carefully attended oi failure is
cei I ii in :
First The fruit must be sufficiently
Hecond The air must be excluded
and the can hermetically sealed.
1 be best fruit should be selected and
that which is not overripe. It should
kept as clean as possible, so that
little or no washing will be required,
as this is iuiuiious to many fruits.
Pick over carefully and wash quickly,
if washing is necessary. Either steam
oi stew, adding as little water as pos
sibleand as little sugar as will suffice
to make tho sauce palatable, bweet
fruits require none at all, and none is
necessary to the preservation of the
fruit. Steaming is rather preferable
to slewing or boiling, as the fruit is
less broken and its natural flavor is
bolter preserved. A tsircelaiu lined
kel la should be ustnl, as all kinds of
metal kettles arc likely to be corroded
by the acids of the fruit.
Tho fruit need not be cookel so
much that it will fall to pieces, but it
hould be so thoroughly scalded that
i v. ry part of it will be subjected lo a
high degree of heat, in order that all
of the genus from which fermentation
originates may bo destroyed. Simply
heating is not sufjicieiit.
Some kinds of fruit require longer
cooking than others. The length of
lime varies about as follows : Boil
cherries five minutes; raspberries,
blackberries and tie currants, six to
eight minutes ; halved peaches, goose
berries and grapts, eight to ten nun-
uU s; sliced pineapple and
and halved iiears, iiltecn to
minutes; strawberries, thirty minutes;
tomatoes, thirty minutes lo two hours.
While the fruit is cooking prepare
the cans in which it is to be placed.
Thoroughly scald them so that there
may be in them nothing that will in
duce decay. To prevent breaking
when tho hot fruit ia placed iu tile can,
it may be heated by pouring into it
hot water and quickly shi.kmg it, so
that all parts may be heated equally,
or the can may be placed in cool wa-1
ter and gradually heated lo the
roouisite degree. Dry heat is equally
ellicit nt, and may lie applied by keep
ing the cans in a moderately hot oven
while the fruit iseooking. Some place
the hot can mam a folded towel wet in
cold water, which coois me uouom anu
so prevents cracking. This method is
When tho fruit is properly cooked
and the cans are in readiness, first
place in the can a quantity of juice, to
that, as the fruit is put in, no vacant
place will be left for sir, which lseonie-
times quite troublesome when this
precaution is not taken. Then add
the fruit. If any bubbles ol air chance
to l loft still, work them out with a
fork, spoonliandle or straw, r ill lue
can full and immediately put on tho
cover and sciew tightly. If the can
is unpleasantly hot, it may be ee-
curely held by passing a towel around
it and twisting the ends together. As

tight, do not open to refill, as you will

tight again unless you reheat the fruit,
in which case you would bo liable to
have tho sumo thing occur again.
Some allow tho fruit to cool about ten
minutes before adjusting the covers.
This gives time for it to cool and set
tle. Tho can is then idled with hot
sirup and tightly sealed
After filling and tightly sealing,
placo the cans in a cool place and
watch them closely for two or three
weeks, when they may bo set away it
there is no i-igns of fermentation.
Should any such signs appear, open

The question occasionally comes np
whether large or small farms are re
ally best for the community. In this
country there can hardly be a ques
tion. It i true that on large farms,
well conducted, the crops are raised,
the stock kept and Uie animal and
their products marketed at much lower
cost of production than upon small
ones, provided the small farmer reckons
his own time and labor and that ol
his family at the same price which the
large farmer or company pays for the
same kind of labor. Nevertheless he
regard his own independence as worth
a good deal to him, and so it is. This
independent feeling this being "his
own boss" costs him just the projxir-
t:onate dillerence betweeu his profits
and those of the larger farmer.
The community is, however, bene
fitted by having many of these inde
pendent, hard-working citizens in place
of a few larger corporations employ-
ing mostly single men, and but few
men with families. Every well to do
small farmer, who by his hard work
and good business habits is improving
his condition year by year, is ambi
tious to own more land, to hire more
help and to increase his profits. When
his weak or shiftless neighbor gets into
difficulty he loans him money and
takes a mortgage; thus the bigger fish
eat up the smaller fry, and the tend'
ency to larger farms is inevitable.
