"Your Jeweler Since 1882"
From one of the most' experienced and
capable women in Pasquotarik, for many
years principal of one of the most pro
gressive' schools in the county, this news
paper has - received the following com
munication which all. parents ". of school
children should read and take to heart;
"A closer relation , between parents
and teachers is to be desired in the in
terest of the pupils. v If teachers knew
the parents they could understand many
of the peculiarities of the. children, and
know how to deal wiht them. , Get ac
quainted with the teacher of your child,
jand be free to talk : with the teacher
about him. visit their . schoolroom m
which your child is at. work 5ust as often
as you can, andyiear him recite. Do
noti go just once, but occasionally - all
through the session, and be . as faithful
and patient as you expect your child s
teacher to be. .' ,
"See to it that the child is on time,
and regular in attendance..' So often ir
regularity or absence for frivolous rea
sons, interferes most seriousjy with the
advancement of the pupil. This winter
you can only blame yourselves if you
have the Superintendent and his workers
after you concerning : this your duty of
"Our public schools are our country s
training ships, and in these "Ships '. you
will find officers in command. You will
say about them that they are just aver
age public school teachers, but neverthe
less by these your child is being prepar
ed to direct our "Ship of State". In the
beginning of school life down in the kin
dergarten, many a child learns for the
first time to respect the rights of others,
lie learns too that community life often
requires individual sacrifice, that there
mav result "The greatest good to the
srreatest number." As he advances from
grade to grade each year adds to his
store of civic knowledge, as well as
knowledge of other things.
vGood training and discipline in the
home is always a help to the teacher. It
is often the case that the .schools have
to do the llung-s which should have oeen
done at home. Do not think your author
ity and responsibilities cease when your
child is sent to school. The confession
of many parents who bring their children
to our schools and ask the teachers to
take charge of them because they them
selves can do nothing with them, isa
al comment on parental authority m
those homes from which such children
come. At child that is trained and dis-
iplined at home rarely ever needs cor
rection at school.
'Do not berate the teacher and say
unkind things about her if she corrects
Tour child at school. Remember there
is the teacher's' side of the case which
the child mav not understand. And un
kind comments about the teacher in the
presence of the child does the child more
harm than the teacher. I think every
teacher should be very conscientious,
faithful, and patient in her work, and I
believe most of them are. When the pa
rents find they are not, they should vi
sit the school and investigate matters.
T think this a eood remedy, especially
fnr n rents who value the welfare of
their children, (and all do if they would
only take the time to think a minute.)
No one except a teacher appreciates
how helpful is a word of encouragement
or interest taken by parents in the school
It is sure to bear fruit a hundredfold.
"Now friends, our schools in town or
county cannot dV everything you expect
without your help and co-operation in
full. So begin at the beginning of school
and there will not be so much worry at
the end of the term, because your child
did not make his grade. By all pulling to
gether we can help the children to be
bigger and better citizens, our county
the leading county in the state, and we
will feel better and happier for having
done our part."

Fractional Sterilization or the So-Called
v Three Days Process
re s- GALESK!0pti,;a,ci
209 GRANBY ST.
(Opposite Monticello Hotel)
Such vegetables as corn, lima beans,
peas, spinach, squash, pumpkin, etc. can
not be sterilized in one day's processing
in a hot banner. In these vegetables
the bacteria is reproduced by means of
spores. These spores are more resis
tent to heat than the bacteria developed
from them. For this reason the three
day process is necessary. The spores are
softened by the heat from the first day's
cooking, and when the can is set aside
they develop into bacteria which spoils
Hib vegetables unless the can is again
C.oolced fci boiling water, and it often
happens that the spores are late in de
veloping bacteria, so a third day's cook
ing is necessary.
fter each day's processing the cans
should be cooled as quickly as possible.
Process glass jars for the required time
on the first day, then push springs down
tightly as you remove the jars from the
canner. Remember that exhausting and
processing are done - at the same time
with glass jars. land. for the same num
ber of minutes; On the second day, raise
springs afterTthe Srater has begun to,
boil, and ' spring tightly when removing
from the canner. Raise springs again on
the third day when jars. are in canner,
and seal tightly when jars are removed.
For screw top jars do not disturb the
seal at the second and third processing
unless the rubber- has blown out.
CORN. Select young tender corn, at
the milky stage. Gather the same day
corn is to be canned, and get it in the
canner as soon as possible. Put corn la
boiling water for 2 minutes, then - cut
from cob with sharp knife, scraping the
cob with back of knife, if any of the
grain is left qn the cob. Place corn in
kettle, cover with hot water, and bring
to a boil, let boil for ten minutes. Pack
in No. 2 cans or pint jars, to within
one inch of the top. If there is not
enough water to cover corn, add enough
boiling water to cover. If field corn is
used add 2 level teaspoons of sugar to
each pint, one teaspoon is all that is nec
essary for sugar corn. Seal cans ana
exhaust for 5 minutes, then tip, put in
canner and boil, a "jumping" boil for one
hour and fifteen minutes, on each of 3
successive, days. Tin cans should be
plunged in a tub of cold water immu
diately on removing them from canner,
when cool take out.
This three-day method is the only
sure way of preserving corn, when a hot
water canner is used. A much less trou
blesome method can be followed if one
ooul go to the expense of buying a
steam pressure canner. In this retort
the heat can be raised to 250 degrees
necessary to destroy the spores in corn,
and the product can be sterilized in one
80. minute cooking.
CORN FIELD PEAS. Gather peas
when barely grown, shell, place in muslin
bag, plunge in boiling water and allow
to cook for . ten minutes. Remove and
pack while hot in cans. Add 1 teaspoon
of salt, and fill within 1-4 inch of the
top wtih hot water. Process a No. 2
can, 2 1-2 hours. Process a No. 3 can,
3 hours Older field peas will require
a thrree day's sterilization period of
1 1-2 hours each day.
LIMA BEANS. Use No. 2 cans or
pint jars for beans. Select young and
tender beans, grade them as to size,
blanch from 2 to 1 minutes, pack in can
or jar within 1-2 inch of top, fBl jar
with brme (1 gallon of water to one
third cup of salt) jor l-2 spoon of salt
to a can, fill with hot water.
PUMPKIN. The same recipe is used
for pumpkin and squash. Cut in pieces
and blanch from 3 to 5 minutes. Pack
in tin cans or glass jars to within 1-4
inch of top. Add 1 teaspoon of salt to
each quart and fill with hot water with
in 1-4 inch of top. Exhaust No. 3 cans
3 minutes process 1 1-2 hours; remove
from canner set aside for 24 hours. Af
ter water is boiling on the second day,
place cans in canner and boil same
length of time as on first day. Remove
from canner, and third day cook in same
CANNED PEARS. Select sound, ripe
medium sized fruit, cut in halves or if
large in quarters, remove all hard por
tions from around the seed and sub
merge in cold water to prevent discol
oration. Plunge the halves or quarters
in boiling water let them cook until they
can be pierced with a straw. Remove
and pack closely in No. 3 tin can or
quart jar. Cover with a boiling syrup
made , of three pounds and 9 ounces of
sugar to. a gallon f water.' Exhaust can
3 minutes and process 20 or 30 minutes.
Process, quart -jar 25 to 35 minutes.
