The beans did well and I sue
ceeded in trying my canning ex
periment with them with the
following results. There were
10 rows 150 feet long and three
feet apart, using 5,000 feet of
ground, or approximately one
eighth, of an acre. I figure it at
this order to allow for what
ground must be left at .the end
of the rows, edges, etc., From
this patch we sold 150 pounds
of green heans in the market at
4 cents per pound, which
brought us $6.50. This sum,
with what was used for the
table, 1 considered ample to pay
for rent on the ground, cultivat
iag, harvesting etc. So what the
canned product brought above
the cost of jars, cans, etc., was
aet profit. It was as follows:
72 No. 2 cans at eight for J1....5 9.00

She canned a variety of pro-

Gregory, in the
event the lower court is sustain
ed, that the lands forfeited be
held until Congress provides
specifically for their disposition.
Attorntey-General Brown, under
authority of the Legislature, will
ask the court, if it declares for
feiture, to go further and decree
that these lands shall be so dls-

at a great saving of time. The
act that the beans were canned
5b 20 minutes in the canner,
against three or four hours by
the open kettle method, demon
strates very clearly the superior
ity of this method. Miss Keyt
wound up her canning this year
with a public demonstration at
