'As Season Is Unusually
With the beginning of the
month of April the snow is rap
idly disappearing until there is
but an occasional streak of the
''beautiful" visible to the naked
eye. in the woods. The first of
April is the day which marks the
beginning of the "sugar sea sen"
among the Chippewa Indians, and
the' reds have taken their wives
and families and hied them to
"the bush" to gather the annual
maple sugar. The head of the
family usually keeps guard over
the cam]) which is established in
the maple belt, and* looks after
the boiling of the sap. Unlike
his pale face brother, he does
not enter strenuously into the
hard work of the gathering of
the sap, but sits beside the big
iron kettle in the sap boils
and with a/pipe grasped firmly
between his teeth stirs the sap
and builds air castles, while his
better half and his offspring at
tend to the real labor. The In
dian method of obtainining
the sap is very simple. A
hole is chopped in the treea
hard mapleabout two feet from
the ground, slanting from the
top to the bottom, and at tho hot
torn of two of these grooves which
join together, there is driven a
hard wood chip, which acts as a
conductor^of the sap into birch
bark receptacles, which are made
for holding the sweet stun'. The
sap is then put into large iron
kettles, over a hot lire where it
boils. A large amount of boiling
is necessary to secure the sugar
as it takes about a barrel of sap
to make a gallon of syrup, winch
will make about three pounds of
sugar, ana this is about the aver
age amount of sap taken from a
tree of mature proportions.
Pieces of fat pork are boiled with
the sajo topand they keep
the sap from boiling over the
kettles. The quality of sus^ar
made by the Indians is absolute
ly pure, and in very good condi
tion when offered lor sale. This
industry constitutes one of the
chief sourcos-of incomeforfcbo
Indian, and it is expected thai
there will be a large crop of the
sap this season, which will last
about three weeks, during which
time the Reds desert therehomes
and live altogether in the bush.
