From State Board of Health.
Preserved foods have been employ
ed by man since early times, when it
was necessary to carry foods from
times of superabundance to those of
scarcity. Certain processes of food
preservation have been practiced on
a small scale for hundreds of years.
It is within the last hundred years
that these processes have been in
creased and improved to the extent
of having an important bearing on
our food supply. The preservation
of food by canning, that ia enclosing
in heremetically sealed containers,
and then subjecting to the action of
heat sufficient to destroy the organ
isms of fermentation, putrefaction,
or decay, dates from the early years
of the nineteenth century. It is not
surprising that in view of the igno
rance of microbic life, of spores, and
of the significance of bacteria that
grew without air, there ahould have
been many failures and much spoil
In the last twenty-five years science
has replaced guesswork, and exact
knowledge is taking place of ignor
ance and superstition. Scientific con
trol of canning has made the product
clean, wholesome, sterile, and safe
from contamination. Canning is
therefore a direct aid to public health.
But the principles of safe canning
are not well understood by the public.
Specific directions for canning have
not taken into consideration the ther
mal death point of certain bacterial
spores that are found on fruit and
vegetables in many parte of this
country. It is also true that definite
experiments have not been made to
determine the heat penetration of
the various packs used in home can
ning. This is a service that the home
economic department of our state ed
cational institutions and the U. S.
Department of Agriculture ahould de
velop in order to safeguard home canning.
Canned foods should be made from
sound material, and should be pre
pared in a cleanly, sanitary manner.
1. Wash thoroughly with pure
2. Cook all vegetables such as
string beans, corn, spinach, etc., at a
minimum temperature of 240 degrees
Fahrenheit. This temperature can be

The above property is believed to be
worth fully $10,000,000,000, and
could not be duplicated for any
where near that amount today.
And a valuation recognising all the
elemrnta of value assured to the or
dinary property-owner would be far
in excess of this amount.
The tentative minimum valuation of the rnllroads at the end of
1919 was found by the Interstate Commerce Commission to be
$18,900,000,000. This valuation was based mainly on coBt of labor,
materials, equipment, etc., on June SO, 11114. The subsequent in
vestment from January 1, 1920, to December 31, 1923, brings the
Interstate Commerce Commission valuation for rnto-making pur
poses as of December 31, 1923, up to about $21,200,000,000.
Each reader can judge for himself the fairness of the conten
tion that the Interstate Commerce Commission vnluntlon should
bo reduced by from $7,000,000,000 to $10,000,000,000. Such a con
tlscntion of values would In effect be a denial to the railroads of
their chief menns of keeping pace with the development of the
country. , ,
Fair recognition of railroad property values la essential Tor ade
