THE CELERY BED.
There Is no relish for the table
which Is more delicious than crisp.
nutty favored celery from the home
garden, the growing of which is In no
sense a difficult matter. If one has
not thought of the matter in time tV
raise plants from the seed, which re
quire two or three weeks to germinate.
they may be secured from a neighbor
or market gardener. i For early use
there is no -ariety which is superior
to the Golden Self blanching, but any
variety that one can get will do well
with proper care. The important point
is to set out stalky. vigorous plants.
taking care to pfune.back both top
and roots at the time of transplanting.
A simple plan for the bed is to re
move about eight Inches of earth from
a spot in the garden which will tbe
convenient for watering. say 4 by 20
feet. or from a still larger tract if
more celery is wanted. Into the soil
at the bottom of this trench should be
worked three or four wheelbarrow
oods of fne, well rotted 9artmlzer.
The plants should be set six to eight
Inches apart in the rows and the rows
ten inches apart. enough to permit of
frequent hoeing. Being set below the
surface of the ground. the bed wll not
dry out rapidly. while the work of
watering is thereby greatly simplified.
If there is no one about the house suf
clently strong of arm to dig the
trench the pLauts may be set on the
level ground and given the some culti
ation and somewhat more frequent
watering than in the low bed. When
the plants have reached a foot or ff
teen inches the hilling process may
be begun and fire or six Inches of
the soil originally removed from the
trench replaced. care being exercised
to bold the stalks of the plants close
together so as to prevent dirt getting
into the crown. Three or four weeks
later. depending somewhat upon the
rapidity of growth, four or fire inches
more of earth should be filled In abovt
the plants and under usual conditions
this will give all the bleaching neces
sary. In a relatively short time after
this second hilling the celery will- be
bleached sufficiently for the table. If
any Is left at the beginning of winter
the plants may be taken up with plen
ty of roots and the earth adhering and
put in a box In the cellar. where they
will continue bleaching and be crisp
and tender until after the holidays.
THE .PRE'COOL.!NG OF FRUIT.
Great benefit Is expected to come to
the fruit growers of the Pacine coast
from the plants which have been in
stalledj at several points in California
and will shortly be erected at other
points for the precooling of fruit, des
tined for transcontinental shipment.
In the past, even wIth the most care
ful refrigeration en route, both trans
portation companies and growers have
sustained serious loss as a result of
fruit spoiling in transit. In these new
precooling plants, which are really
mammoth refrigerating plants. whole
train loads of fruit can be reduced to
a temperature close to the freezing
point in the course of two or three
hours, artificial means being used to
draw the warm air from and inject
the cold air into the cars. Car loads
of fruit made ready for shipment in
this way are givcn the usual Icing in
transit, with the result that the fruit
arrives ai its destination In as nearly
perfect condition as possible, the loss
resulting from the ,truit being In heat
ed condition at the time of shipment.
as has been the case heretofore, being
virtually nothing. The installation of
these plants at important shipping
points not only In the west. but in
other parts of the country, will mean
increased revenue for the growers of
fruit and a greatly improved quality
for the consumer.
THE BIG FREEZE.
Harvest time alone will reveal the
extent of the damage wrought by the
fearful cold spell which visited some
fourteen or fifteen of the lake, Ohio
and MIssssippi valley states during the
last ten days in April. It caught fruit
trees of aill kinds In full blossom or
tender young fruit and not only seared
and blackened these, but killed the
new leaves ad tender twigs of shrubs
and forest trees and killed or greatly
weakened the vitality of thousands of
acres of newly sprouted grain and
corn. Farther south. in the tobacco
and cotton belts, the damage was enor
mous, the extent of which can only be
determined later. To the west on the
great plains Immense damage was
done to grain and fruit. wLile fruit
growers in Utah and Colorado report
their losses at from 50 per cent up.
Those who are acquainted with the
meteorological antics of the sections
under the sway of the Medicine Hlat
weater hierarchy feared just such a
contingency when the wires got cross
ed and April and May weather was
dispensed all through March. How
ever, It is too early In the season to
lose courage, for nature may be ex
eeedig kind the rest of tbe year.

While euphonlously named brands of
wheat flour often come from the same
bin in the mill, were the truth only
known there are distinctions with di!
ferences in at least three of the grades
of flour usually milled whieh the con
smer might well be acquainted with.
The highest priced "patent" flours
are made from the inner portion of
the wheat, rnnning from 00 to 05 per
cent of the berry. "Clear" flour con
sists of the edible portion of the wheat
less the patent which has been taken
from It and contains from 15 to 30
per cent of the wheat berry. Straight
lour contains all of the berry which Is
it for human food and, though con
sidered inferior to the patent flour in
grade -and lower In price, contains
more of the nutritive elements of the
wheat berry and therefore makes a
more nutritious bread.
Only within the past few years has
an adequate value been placed 'upon
kmmilk, yet it Is a well known fact
of chemistry that It contains virtuajly
all of the casein (protein) of the whole
milk, the butter fat removed in the
cream being carbon and wvater. ,Practl
cally all of the food value of skim
milk may be removed in the shape of
cottage cheese, also known as
"schmerkase." The following recipe
for making this appetizing food is rec
ommended by the Nebraska experi
ment station: Allow the skimmllk to
become sour and curdled, then heat to
90 or 100 degrees F. in about thirty
minutes. After it has reacbed the de
sired temperature remove the vessel
from the stove and allow curd to re
main In hot' whey for about fifteen
minutes- Then remove whey by pour
ig the clabber into a cheesecloth bag
or through a fine wire screen with
cheesecloth spread over it and allow
to drain until no more wvhey appears.
The texture-hardness or softness of
the cual-depends upon the tempera
ture to which the milk is heated and
the time the card Is allowed to renmin
in the hot whey. The greater the heat
and the longer Its duration the aarde-r
the cheese will be. Adding to the card
'about one-tenth Its volume of rich
cream greatly improves the flavor of
the cheese, together with sufficient
salt to season.
