Theio is no mystery -or lack in the successful canning of fruit If cer tain rules are followed in all their details, failure is nearly impossible. Glass jars that are sealed with a wrench are a desirable kind to buy. All germs of fungus growth or fer mentation in the cans or fruit must be destroyed by heat. In anticipation of canning timo, lay all emptied cans, minus their tops, in a boiler half full of cold ammoni- ated water. When-the-water is hot remove from the fire, and when suf ficently cool take out the jars and dry them. Treat the tops in the same way. Use warm wnter for the rubber rings. Discard all cracked, doubtful tops. Remove all indentations from the tops with a tack hammer and Bee that they will fit perfectly. See that the rims of your glasses are trustworthy. Lay aside those that ore nicked for your preserves and jellies. Reject all rubber rings that are not pliable or closo fitting. It is no economy to use worn rubbers. -The fruit should be just ripe; never overripe. Cook as soon as possible after pick ing. Do not wash fruit j it impairs the flavor. If the berries are actually gritty float a quart at a timo in a deen pan of cool water. The sand will sink to the bottom of the pan. Then make a cullender of your two hands and scoop gently out of the water, shaking off the drops. Paro all fruit with a silver knife, and, ns it darkens by exposure to the air, drop each piece as pared into clear water, and prepare only the quantity needed to,ffll.two.caus. ,4' Fruit looks and is better when whole, the. juices are clearer and the flavor is more fully retained. It is difficult to cook a la'ge quantity evenly without injuring the shape For this reason it is better to cook only enough to fill a few jars at a time. In canning a crate of berries it is well to select the finest looking quarts and can expressly for simple desserts at table. Such particular canning will not be necessary for cooking purposes. Cook fruit in a porcelain lined or granite kettle. If tin is used, it should, be new. Cook evenly for fifteen minutes after it begins to boil. There is no necessity for using sugar in canning frnit, but one teaspoonful to a quart of fruit is sometimes added. When ready to can have all artioles needed close at hand. Set the can on two thiacknesses of warm wet flannel. Dip out the boiling fruit with a long handled ladle, and fill the jar to over flowing. Run a knitting needle three times down to the bottom of the filled can and liberate the air bubbles. Ihen, with a. quick moveujcqt, break the bubbles lying on fop, and seal without the loss of a second. In ten minutes tighten the tops again with your wrench, and when the cans are cool wrap in paper and keep in a cool, dry, dark plftpg. Be sure there are no seeds or sediment on the rubber ring before sealing. A funnel comes, which is a great convenience in filling the jars, Do not store your cane of fruit on a swing shelf unless you ore certain it will bear the weight. In canning berries dip out most of the surplus juice and seal, when boiling hot, in pint cons for thp children.— Ex. The Great Leader and Benefactor, 132 BROADS Not Pride, but Caution.

Charleston, S. C., Nov. 3 —News comes from Spartanburg, one of the best cotton-growing couties in the state, of a new cotton plant, which, if it is as claimed, will make wonderful revolution in the agricultural and cot ton oil interests of the nation. T. Fer guson, an experienced cotton planter- claims to have a cotton plant which will produce nothing but cotton seed without the lint. His statement is briefly as follows: He claims that there is a male and female cotton plant—the male being designated, he thinks, by red calks- The seeds are van colored, the Bbades being generally blue, greep and white, and of course cannot be distinctly specified, Given this fact. Ferguson commenced, some time ago, to pick out the male plants, and with the seed extracted from them, planted another patch seperately. When the crop was ready for picking, the male plants were again selected, and the produc tion of seeds planted again. This process of selecting the male plants was kept up until, at last, the lint re fused to germinate, and nothing is left in the bolls save a large amount of seed. The amount of seed contained in the boll is more than equal to the weight of seed and lint found in the average sized boll of cotton. Fergu son claims that he ran produce foqr hundred bushels of seed to the acre by his new discovery, when only thirty- five bushels are now gathered with the lint, lie lias been very careful in producing the results given above—to obliterate all traces of lint from a boll of cotton—and has succeeded in a most remarkable manner. Other ex perienced planters have been shown Ferguson’s discovery and arc much struck with it. ,... An expert who was shown the plant and bolls, says the bolls have the ap pearancc, both on the exterior and the interior, ot a regular boll of cotton after the lint has been picked out. The seed are a little larger than the com mon seed, and are perfectly free from any semblance of lint. The bolls are filled with seed, which ire as numerous as okra seed in a pod of okra. The revolution that will be affected by this new cotton plant, if it can be cul tivated successfully, will be beyond calculation. If Ferguson’s calcula tions are correct, the cotton seed oil business will be revolutionized. The planters who now raise cotton are fortunate ii they can raise aoo pounds oflint cotton to the acre. Counting the value ot cotton seed at $50 to the acre is considered a big return to cot ton planters in this state. Ferguson claims that his new cotton seed plant will yield nt least $90 an acre. This amount be says will be obtained from 400 bushes of cotton seed at twenty cents per bush el, that being the present price paid for the raw seed. The state agricul- tual bureau will investigate the mat ter. ' A Ghost Running Machinery. The machinery of the Scottford Manufacturing Company at Kenosha, Wis., has been acting very queerly for the last few nights. On the 1st of this month the watchman said that when he was down stairs the machim ery up-stairs started running, and when he went up-stairs to ascertain the cause the machinery up-stairs immediately stopped and the machin ery down stairs commenced to run, On coming down again, he saw some thing white at the other end of the, room, which vanished when he threw the rays of his dark lantern upon it. In the morning the watchman told Mr. Scottford what had happened, and the next evening Mr. Scottford stayed with the watchman. About 12 o’clock the machiney commenced, as on ia the previous night, on the second floor, and when they both went up-stairs it again stopped aud com menced down-stalre. They then went down-stairs commenced above as before. Mr. Scottford fired with ia revolver through the floor, but jt had no effect Saturday night six watchmen were hired, but when the machines started they all fled. About three month ago a young man named John Costello was killed by his clothes being caught on a set screw on a rapidly revolving shaft in these works, and beliovers in spirits do not hesitate to hold the departed spirit of the young man responsible for the phenomenal action of the ma chinery. An Eccentric Millionaire. The most eccentric millionaire in New York, says the New York 8tar, is probably Charles B, jfougs, He served ip the Confederate army under Stonewall Jackson, and is a Virginian by birth. Thirteen years ago he W08 ruineij and $50,000 in debt. To-day he is building a massive structure 200 feet deep, 75 feet front and 12 stories high on Broadway. This building will cost $2,000,000 whet) finished, and is paid for Btep by step. His business methods are unique. He has 400 employes, and pays 75 off everyday. This makes every day a pay day. Hi* annual income is esti mated at $550,000. Mr. Roues’ ener gy is wonderftil. He works from Q in the morning till IQ at night. He does not spend more than $1,000 per year oUtisideof his household expenses. His principal source of amusement is to stand on the rear end of a street car and throw dimes and nicklea to to boys. A short time ago an En glishman syndicate offered him $2,- 000,000 for his business. Straightening Things. Patrick Maginis went to confession and among many other sins, confessed to the good father that he had stolen Mrs. Muleahy’s pig, the loss of wbioh j a great blow to the poor woman. The priest looked at Pat very severely, and said: “Stole Mrs. Muleahy’s pig, did ye ? That’s very bad, Patrick—very bad. Don’t ye know, Pat, that to* steal a pig isahaynonious sin, and to steal Mrs. Muleahy’s pig Is worse? What will you say on the day of Judgment when Mrs, Mnlcahy confronts ye be fore the Lord an’ charges ye with stealing her pig—what will you say V Pat looked rather glum at this on slaught, but nt this point ho picked up and said; “Sure, your riverince, Mrs. Mul cahy won’t be there.” “Indade; an’ why not, Pat Magin is? Mrs. Mulcahy will be there and the pig’ll be there, an’ when yer asked why ye stole the widdy’s pig, what’ll ye say, I’m wantin’ to know?” “Will Mrs. Mulcahy be there ?” asked Pat, a great idea illuminating his face.' “She will," said the good father severely. “And will the pig ho there ?” “Certainly.’ 1 ‘ Then, begorra," said Pat, “I’ll say Mrs. Mulcahy, there’s your pig.” A Receipt For Love.
