Scorched Linen.
To restore scorched linen, take two
onions, peel and slice them and ex
tract the juice by squeezing or pound
ing. Then cut up half an ounce of
white soap and add two ounces of
Fuller's earth; mix with them thc
onion juice and half a pint of vinegar.
Boil this composition well, and spread
it, when cool, ovor the scorched part
of the linen, leaving it to dry thereon.
Afterwards wash out the linen.
Hay Quilt?.
The inveterate sewing woman's last,
worst gift to the world is tho hay
quilt. It is malo of flannelette, cre
tonne or wool and a few armfuls of
hay. The good art sewed across the
top and bottom from side to side at
distances of about fourteen inches;
then the hay is put in lightly and the
remaining side sewed down. When
the hay becomes limp tho quilt may
be hung before the fire, and it will soon
become crisp again, The warmth of
these quilts cannot be realized except
by those who have tried them.-Now
York Journal.
To Clean Carin t*.
For cleaning the spots on tho carpet
ox gall or ammonia and water aro ex
cellent. The proportion is one table
spoonful of household ammonia to four
parts of water, or uso ono tablespoon
ful of ox gall to one quart of water.
Apply with a sponge or flannel not too
wet aud rub until nearly dr,y. Lime
spots may bo removed with vinegar.
This must be used quickly and washed
off immediately. For soot, cover with
salt or cornmeal and sweep up. To
remove ink spots pour on milk, and as
it becomes colored absorb with a blot
ting or other soft absorbent paper;
coarse butcher's paper is good. As
soon as the ink is removed wash with
warm water and castile soap-nothing
stronger-to remove the grease of tho
milk.
Silver's Tarnish.
To remove stains from silver, especi
ally such as are caused by mediciue or
by neglect, usc sulphuric acid, rubbing
it on with a little flannel pad, then
rinsing the articles most carefully at
once. For less ingrained stains, the
pulp of a lomon, whose juice has been
used for lemon squash, may be recom
mended, as both efficient and harm
less. Indiau siller and brass is al

DRIED VEGETABLES^ """"""
A New Industry Which Has Started Up in
California,
A new and important industry has
come into existence in Santa Clara
County which bids fair in time to rival
thc fruit drying. This is the prepar
ation of dried vegetables for the mar
ket, which at present is generally con
fined to the short seasons at tho driers
between th? ripening of the different
fruits. Just lately the vegetables have
been usurping thc place of apricots, but
they have now already begun to give
way in turn to the prunes.
On approaching a drier it does not
take one long to decide whether fruit
or vegetables aro being prepared, for
in thc latter case a pungent odor
rushes out to sting one's eyes and
crawl uncomfortably up one's nostrils
-for the trail of onions is over the
land. Within a lively scene is pre
sented. Men are "hurrying to and iro
bearing trays and boxes, while long
rows of women and children sit busily
peeling potatoes and carrots, which,
together with the onions, form at pres
ent the stable product. When boxea
of potatoes and carrots are filled they
are poured into a large- hopper, and
from there fed to a machine with ro
tating ^ifeblades, which cuts them
tip into small slices a quarter of an
Inch tnick. The further process which
the potatoes undergo is simple, and
for carrots and the other minor vege
tables it is practically the same.
After being sliced the tubers are
slightly sulphured in a chamber built
of wood. Here great discrimination
must be used, for, if they are sulphured
too much, the potatoes will taste of
the fumes; if too .little, they will not
contain enough antiseptic property,
and bacteria attracted by the starch -
will develop. Moreover, a little sul
phuring is necessary to preserve the
color of the vegetables as far as pos
sible and to prevent decay.
After this process the potatoes are
not spread out in the sun, but put in
to an evaporator. The latter looks
like a small Ferris wheel and is in
closed in a sort of brick oven with
glass windows. Within this it re
volves close to hot air pipes for a few
hours. When the moisture is suffi
ciently evaporated the cars of the
wheel are emptied through the win
dows and their contents are now ready
for shipment in sacks.
. When this stage is reached :he sliced
potatoes resemble dry chips, and it
takes six or seven pounds of the fresh
to make one nonnr] nt t>>~ J-?->*

, . . .<:-..:! in thc case ->f
both carrots and potatoes might be
improved upon were steam employed.
By using the latter the starch in the
potatoes would be partly cooked and
sterilized, and after this the tubes
could be evaporated in a chamber
similar'to thc one above described. In
this way thc potatoes could be rid of
sulphur, well dried and yet capable
Of being quickly soaked, and there
would be no chance for bacteria to de
velop.
Other vegetables than those men
tioned are at present in process of
development; but so far the industry
?has proved very profitable, as evinced
by the increased demand for dried
vegetables all over the country, but
especially in the mining regions.-San
Francisco ^Chronicle._

The Peannut Crop.
About 40,000,000 pounds of peanuts
are produced in the United States
every year, but this enormous quan
tity is "small when compared with the
annual product of the world, which is
estimated at 000,000,000 pounds. In
1592 exportations from Africa and
India to Europe were nearly 400,000,
000 pounds, the city of Marseilles alone
taking 22,000,000 pounds, most of
which was converted into olive (?) oil
and shipped as such to the United
States and other countries. The mar
ket is, in fact, unlimited and no other
section surpasses the Carolinas and
Virginia in their bountiful growth of
peanuts of the very best quality.
