worked out ii labor saving device
in the form of u sled for harvest
ing pines. 1 he sled consists of
a crate idiout Ki inches high, Itnilt
onto two limners of ordinary two
hy four. In order to permit the
sled In slide het ween llio rows of
pineapples the runners lire not set
parallel hut sire set so that they
converge toward the front end of
(he frame. The runners are three
ami a half feet long, set 15 incites
apart in the front and IS inches
in the rear. The crate which is
huill directly onto the runners
has a capacity of about six bags
of pineapples. It is also narrow
er in front than in the rear.
In harvesting pines one man is
sent ahead to pick the fruit and
lay it down. Another man fol
lows with the sled drawn by a
mule ami is aide to pick up the
fruit and carry it to Ihe side of
the lield as rapidly as the man
on ahead can pick the fruit. Mr.
Whittingtoii's foreman claims
that hy using the sled in this man
ner Iwo men can do the work of
three. It is much easier than
packing the pines out of the field
in hags, and as the men do not
gel tired quickly they are able to
do more work.

According to specialists of the
U. S. Department of Agriculture,
in preparing hogs to be slaughter
ed a fast of 2 to :(' hours, idenlv
of water, careful handling, anil
rest before slaughter are nil im
portant in securing meat in the
best condition for use, either fresh
or for curing purposes. Food in
the stomach decomposes very
rapidly after slaughter, and where
the dressing is slow the gases
generated often atl'ect the Uavor
of Ihe meat. Water should be
given freely up to the time of
slaughter, as it keeps the tempera
ture normal. It is highly import
Ant that the animal be not excited
in any way snlliciently to raise the
temperature of the bod v. If the
animal becomes heated it is better
to allow it to rest overnight before
killing than to risk spoiling the
meat. It is also essential that the
hog be carefully handled so as
not to hrilise its body.
