I Brine Method and Dry Metl
Clemson College, Nov. 8.-Cc
try sausage and home cured h
These words make almost any i
smile, but too often he will be dis
pointed in the eating, because pol
tiolly good pork is often ruined
ignorance of the essentials of m
curing to some extent but t
can be overcome.
I The pork carcass should be divi
ed on the basis of lean or fat, il
or thin. Properly divided, there i
be ham, loin, bacon, shoulder i
head, says D. T. Herrman, extens
swine specialist, who makes the i
lowing suggestions on curing me
The ham is cut off just back
the rise of the backbone and at ri|
angles to the leg. The hindleg is i
off an inch above the knee. The hf
is cut from the shoulder at the at
joint and includes all of the jc
meat. The shoulder is cut off betwc
the third and fourth ribs and at rif
angles to the body. The bacon is <
from the loin just below the tend
loin muscle on the rear part of t
middle and parallel to the back, i
of these cuts require trimming a
squaring. This improves the appel
ance of the finished product, a
makes for uniform curing. No mc
lean meat than necessary should
exposed, as curing hardens it. J
loose pieces should be trimmed o
for they dry out in curing. All b
one-fourth inch of fat should be trii
med off the loin and put into t
lard, care being taken in trimmii
this off not to cut into the loin.
Lean trimmings and head meat j
into the sausage; fat trimmings in
the lard. The loin and sausage a
used for fresh meat and the remai
der is cured.
The first essential to successf
curing is thorough cooling, but tl
meat should not be frozen st ai
time. Either brine or dry curing wi
be satisfactory. Brine requires le:
work unless it gets ropy and in th
case it must be drawn off and boil?
or a new brine made. Brine als
keeps away insects and vermin. Du:
ing warm weather the dry method
much safer. Whichever method
used it is advisable to rub the surfac
of the meat with fine salt and alio1
it to drain for 6 to 12 hours befor
packing in the cure.
Brine Method of Curing:.
For brine curing use 10 pounds o
salt, 2 1-2 pounds of sugar ,2 ounce
of saltpeter, 4 1-2 gallons of wate
for every 100 pounds of meat. Bo:
these in the water so that they wi!
be thoroughly dissolved and allow t
cool. Pack hams in the bottom of th
container, shoulders next and the ba
con cuts on top, and pour on th
brine, being sure that it covers th
meat. In five days draw off the brine
reverse the order of packing, ant
pour the brine back again. Repea
this operation on the tenth and eigh
teenth days. Allow four days euri
for each pound of ham and shoulde:
in a piece, and three days for eacl
pound in a piece of bacon.
For dry curing use 6 to 7 pound;
of salt, 2 1-2 pounds of sugar, ?
ounces of saltpeter for every 10(
pounds of meat. (Two ounces of rec
pepper and 4 ounces of black peppei
may be used if desired.) Mix thor
oughly; rub one-third on the meal
the first day and pack; unpack or
the third day and rub in one-third
more and repack; and on the seventh
day rub on the remainder and pack
the meat to cure. Allow two days in
the cure for each pound in a piece o?
bacon and 2 1-2 days for each pound
in a ham or shoulder.
Much of the superiority of pack
ers' meat comes from proper soaking
after curing and before smoking.
This brightens the meat and removes
excess salt, which will harden and
form a crust if left on through the
smoking process. The packers use
water at about 65 degrees Fahren
heit and soak hams or shoulders two
hours, bacon 1 1-2 hours. Sometimes
meat must be left in the cure longer
than the standard time, and then they
add three minutes extra for each
day over time.
After hanging about 3 hours to
drip, the meat is ready to smoke.
Green hickory or maple makes the
best smoke, but any ordinary hard
wood will do. Soft woods or resinous
woods are very unsatisfactory. A
mild smoke of 24 to 36 hours is most
common. Twelve hours should be the
minimum, and meats that are to be
kept into the summer should be smok
ed longer than 36 hours.
The farmer's recipe for sausage
is generally governed by tasting but
to insure a uniform product the fol
lowing may be used as a standard:
1 1-3 to 1 3-4 pounds of salt, 2
ounces of ground sage, 4 ounces of
black pepper for 100 pounds of meat,
with 1 ounce of nutmeg if desired.
welfare will be brought up, and have
a prayerful preparation beforehand.

Keeping the Orchard Sanitary.
.Clemson College, Nov. 8.-Many
insects and diseases live over winter
in brush, grass, leaves, and other
trash that collect about orchards. The
adult insects and the disease spores
which pass the winter in such trash
come to life in early spring and at
tack the new crop of fruit and the
young growth. To lessen such dam
age fenc rows and ditch banks
should be cleaned out and burned in
order to destroy all hiding places,
the insects and hosts of the dieases.
Any dead"bush or limb about the or
chard should also be burned.
The trees should be inspected to
see that all dead wood is cut out as
I well as any other wood infested with
shot-hole borer. If brown rot has
been severe in the orchard the pakt
seasons, all mummied peaches should
be pulled off the trees, and those that
have fallen should be raked up arid
burned. This disease passes the win
ter on the mummied peaches and if
not destroyed will produce spores ia
the spring to reinfest the next crop.
When the orchard is burned this
winter all limbs which have been
pruned off should be removed anid
burned. Trees that are found low rn
vitality should be pulled up anfl
burned, or plans made to give them
special care annd increased amounis,
of fertilizer the coming spring anet
summer in order to give them re>
newed vigor and keep them from hep
coming breeding placea for insects ?
and hosts of diseases. * w ?
.Clemson College, Nov. 8.-The;
bee-keeping specialists of the Exten
tion Service find a most unusual con
dition to exist in the bee yards at
this time in regard to brood rearing:
The heavy crop of white asters are
yielding an abundant supply of hon
ey and a large amount of honey is be
ing stored throughout the state; bu\
the point difficult to understand' is
the fact that the brood chamber is
being stored full of honey, there be-;'
ing but very little brood present.'
When a queen abandons egg lay
ing at this season of the year, even,
though there is plenty of honey in,
the brood chambers and the supers]
it does not encourage the beekeepers
because the colony is forced into
winter-quarters with old bees greatly
predominating. These dwindle more
or less daring the winter, causing
a weak colony in the spring which
may not be able to develop full
strength in time for the first honey
It is hoped that when the honey
flow stops and some of the honey in
the brood chambers is consumed,
the queen may yet react and lay eggs
to furnish a supply of young bees
for the winter.
Think- about winter packing. Do
it right or not at all.
Much Work in Making Honey.
Few persons realize the enormous
effort required to make a single
pound of honey. In a pound jar, the
Manchester Guardian tells us, there
is the concentrated essence of aixty
To make a pound of clover honey
the bees must take nectar from sixty
two thousand blossoms and make 2,
700,000 visits in getting it. Often the
journey from the hive to the flower
and back is as much as two miles, so
that the making of a pound of honey
requires journeys that may aggre
gate more than 5 million miles.

! Farmers in West Use Corn as
Washington, Nov. 6.-?orn at 32
?cents a bushel is tqual in value to
coal at $16 a ton, Secretary Wallace
said today, commenting on reports
that some farmers were burning corn
for fuel. At 20 cents a bushel, he said
corn would be equivalent to fuel coal
at $10 a ton.
'In districts where corn is very
cheap now the coal is of rather poor
grades and is selling at high prices,"
he continued. "Under such condi
tions it will pay both farmers and
people in the country towns to use
corn instead of coal. Undoubtedly
large quantities of corn will be burn
ed on Western farms this week unless
the price should materially advance."
Mr. Wallace said the use of sur
plus grain as fuel in times of low
marketability in other cereal raising
countries, corn having been burned
in Argentina under such conditions,
