j ' PRESERVING FRUITS FOR EX
HIBITION. B. O. Longycar, Associate Professor
of Botany, Colorado Agricul
? tural College, Fort Collins.
A great many experiments have
been made in, the attempt to find some
fluids or solutions in which the more
perishable fruits could be kept for cx-
htbition at fairs and exposition.-,.
Sonic of these have proved very sat
isfactory for certain fruits, but it is
doubtful if any process will' ever be
disqovcrcd by which-the softer Winds,
such as strawberries and raspberries,
can be kept for any considerable
I length of time without much' change
in color. '
The specimens to be preserved
should be the most perfect obtain
able, froc from all blemishes and im
perfections. In most cases fruit of a
fair degree of ripeness is better than
paiHy green ispecimens.
Exhibition jars should be of clear
white glass and preferably, with
ground glass stoppers. The tall, cy
lindrical form is desirable, especially
for the smaller fruits,
The sorted fruit is first carefully
placed in the jar which is then filled
with clear water. After standing
short time the water should be poured
off so as to remove all particles of
dirt from the jar and contents. The
jar may then be filled with the pre
serving fluid and kept in a dark, cool
place until the time for exhibition.
Frequent examination should be made
to determine how" well the fruit is
. keeping. If the iquid becomes col
ored from the fruit, it should be
poured off and replaced by fresh fluid.
The following formulas have been
successfully used at the Colorado Ag
ricultural College, especially with
plums, grapes, cherries, currants, and
Formalin, s parts; saturated solu
tion of common tabic salt, 10 parts;
water (boiled and cooled) enough to
make 100 parts.
This may be made up by measures
as follows: Formalin, 1 pint; salt so
lution, 2 pints; water, 17 pints.
When made up, the solution will
keep indefinitely. Another solution
weaker in formalin has also been
.used here satisfactorily. The propor
tions are: Formalin, 3 part3; salt so
lution, 10 plarts; -water enough 4o
make 100 parts'.
For raspberries, the following mix
ture is recommended: Formalin, 1
part; glycerine, 10 parts; water, 89
Strawberries may be preserved fair
ly well in a saturated solution of com
mon salt, 'and bcitcr still in a fluid
composed of formalin, 1 ounce; alum,
1 dram; glycerine," 5 ounces; water,
Red currants keep best in a solu
tion of corrosive Sublimate, 1 part;
glycerine, 10 parts; water, 89 parts.
The corrosive sublimate must be
dissolved in hot water and the solu
tion and fruit preserved in it should
be labeled poison, as it is very deadly
The glass stoppers of ibottles and
' jars may be made perfectly tight by
smearing the ground surface with a
small amount of light colored vase
line. This will also prevent, in great
measure, the sticking of the stoppers
when it is desired to remove thenr.
WHICH IS WORTH WHILE?
Paynesvillc is a small American
town, Like every other small Ameri
can town" it has several social' circles.
The women in one of thtsc -circles call
themselves the "best society." Their
only title to this distinction is that
they have a little more money than
their neighbors and arc able to dress
and entertain .more lavishly.
Ten years ago two families came
to Payncsvillc to live, without intro
duction. One of them the Blairs
at once pushed themselves into the
notice of the fashionable set. They
toadied to them, gave costly dinners
for them, talked of them familiarly to
the other townsfolk by their first
names. They were admitted into the
edge of the fashionable set and re
mained there, always pretentious, al
ways snobbish, always vulgar.
The Paulls, the other new family,
made no attempt to enter any circle.
"We shall make this place our
home," Mrs. Paull said to her daugh
ters. "It is not society we want. It
They were quiet gentlefolk who had
inherited good sense audi good breed
ing from many generations. They
gave no large, pretentious entertain
ments, but there was always a place
at their simple, hospitable table for a
friend. But these guests never were
idle companions of the moment. Af-
tcr some "time, as always follows, the
"best society" people of the town
took notice of the life in this home H
and its high, simple meaning, and tried
to gain an entrance to it. H
Every one of us, like the Paulls and H
Blairs, must work out our lives among
the people of some American town. H
But like unto which arc vc the H
Paulls or the Blairs? Which is worth
DOING ONE'S BEST. ' 4
I may not reach the heights I( seek; H
My untried strength miay fail me; H
Or, half-way up the mountain peak, H
Fierce tempests may assail mc. t H
But though that place I never gain.
Herein lies comfort for my pain H
I will be worthy of it. H
I may not triumph in success, H
Despite my earnest labor, H
I may not grasp results that bless H
The efforts of my neighbor. H
But though that goal I never sec, H
This thought shall always dwell with
I will be worthy of it. H
The golden glory of love's light H
May Jicvcr fall upon my way, H
My path may lead through shadowed H
Like some deserted way. ,
But though life's deadest joy I miss, 'H
There lies a nameless strength in H
I will be worthy of it. H
