will allow of It. An exrra plowing or two

*ome l*lnfa on Syrup Making.
The first, and per ha p* most import
ant consideration, la that of when to cut
th# cane, and on this point there la a very
wid#-spread error in practice, say* 11. E.
Stot'khrWlge in the Florida Agriculturist.
I |s a fact that th# cane doe* not be
gin to grow sweet until th# season be
gins to wane, so that th# old adage that
"cold weather mak#* sugar,” l* well
founded Th#se fa#ts being accepted, th#
natural sequence is that the longer the
season of growth, or the liwer the cutting
of th# cane Is deferred, the sweeter it
will be. and coneequently the greater th#
amount of syrup obtainable. My sugges
tion. therefore. Is to allow the cane to
remain growing as long a# possible; in
deed. until danger of frost has become
imminent, and then th# cane should ie
cut and laid in wind row# so that th#
stalk* ar# covered and protected by th*
foliage. In this way the cane may re
main without Injury, though attacked
by quite severe Croat, and the grinding
m.y take place at leisure. Irrespective
oi weather. laist year ore ground no can#
on ih# station farm until January 9 and
bv following the practice mentioned, se
cured nearly a month of additional growth
for our crop over the average of our lo
cality. ami Increased the nverage sugar
content by nearly four per cent.
Ihe first step in syrup making 1s th#
rlorlfit ailon of the Juice, and probably
U P© ( l' r Puccess of thl* part of the pro
cess the final result depend* to a greater
degree than upon any other factor. There
can no longer lx- any doubt as to th# en
tire efficiency of the method of clarifica
tion hy the use of Spanish mos*. hut in
quiries are constantly made .is lo the best
method of using the more. The action of
the moss depends upon the fact that It Is
the most perfect strainer thus far sug
gested for this pnrpos# and as much takas
the place of the gunny-sa k s> commonly
used and of all other method* which have
been suggested for purifying the Ju;c •,
* It comes from the mill. It not only
thoroughly strain* coloring matter nnd in
purltles from the Juice, hut at the same
tim* remove* the germs of fermentation
to such an extent that syrup made ir *n
Juice thus treated may be kept indeflnlt* !v,
without danger of fermenting or souring.
The moa# to be used should b# In the crime
condition a* that commonly uses) for mai
tress purposes It should he black or gin
ned moss from which th# gray lark ra#
been removed by exposure to the weather
and from which all foreign material ra*
been picked The greater th# amount of
moss through which the Juice can be
made fo pass the more effective will be
Its work Thl*. however, will be chiefly
controlled by the amount of fall available
between th# mill and the evaporator, or
If kettles are used, by the dt-tanc# be
tween th# nutlet from th# mill ami the
ground. The simplest and best mean* '.a
the use of a box or filter about on# fool
square, or In dlamter. and as long as the
distance lietw#en the outlet from the mill
ami th# ground will p-rmlt Commonly
this will not be 4#*s than four fee*. This
box or cylinder should have an outlet at
the bottom protected by a piece of wire
gauge inside and from which th# Juice,
after having passed through the mass,
may be drawn off into the kettle* or al
lowed to conatantly run Into the evapora
tor. This filter should b# filled with h#
