The heaviest itemi of expense is foi
at crishing mill. Primitive farmers
constructed this out of two logs set
vertically in bearings as rollers, with
a sweep attached 'to one, so that it
could be turned by a horse or mule.
The modern mills have two or more
rollers, set vertically or horizontally.
They mlay be driven either by horse
power or a motor. The juice is run
ofl t hrough a trough into a tank and
the hagasse or refuse fiber is taken
away on a carrier. Bagasse is some
times used for fuel, but more often
spread on the ground for fertilizer.
Cows will browse upon it and get
some nourishment. They should not
be permitted to eat too much at first.
Bagasse mixed with varying percent

etc., has also been used as a dry dairy
In crushing cane care should be
taken to adjust the rollers to the Iate
at which the cane is fed. Juice ob
tained by moderate pressure is better
than when impurities from the rind
and points are extracted.
Chemical Clarifiers Troublesome
The juice is permitted to stand in
tanks to allow impurities to settle. If
there are facilities to heat the settling
tank the process will be quicker.
Coarse yellow plastic clay is some
times used. The settling tank may be
swung so as t opermit pouring juice

The simplest boiling apparatus is
the old iron kettle swung over the fire.
Series of kettles are also used and the

from one to aniothcr. Kettle boiling
requires extreme care to keep the pro
duct from burnim, and the kettle
needs to be cleaned after two or three
charges. A regular evaporating pan
is much superior. Such pans permit a

clarified juice runs in over the fire
(oor and the finished sirup flows out
near the chimney. Impurities should
be skimmed off as they appear in boil
ing. These skimmings make good
feed for hogs unless unhealthful sub
stances have been used in clarification.
One of the most difficult tasks in sirup
manufacture is to remove the impuri
ties. The thicker the sirup the longer
these take to settle and the harder it
is to filter them out. Some makers
prefer to boil to a comparatively thin
sirup, pass it through a filtering me
dium, and then reboil to he proper
The finished sirup should contain at
least 70 per cent of solids and not
more than 30 per cent water, which
gives it a weight of about 11 1-4 lbs.
to the gallon, when at the tempera
ture of 60 Fahrenheit. Water at the
sea level, under ordinary conditions,
boils at 212, and sirup to give the re
quired density boils at 223.7 under the
same conditions. Altitude and other
factors lower the boiling point, and
the rule followed by sirup makers is
to finish sirup at a boiling point 12 to
13 higher than that of water.
The other method is by the hydrom
eter, an instrument which floats in
the liquid and shows the density by a
graduated scale on Its surface. Di
rections for use are usually inclosed
with the instrument when purchased.
This instrument is also used by cus
tom manufacturers to show the sugar
content of raw juice.
Filters May Be Used
When the sirup has reached its re
quired density it should be quickly re
moved from the fire and cooled. If
skimming and filtering has not been
carefully done during the boiling pro
eess there will be impurities remain
ing which are difficult of removal.
Most of this substance will settle to
the bottom if the sirup is allowed to
stand for a time. Sand, asbestos, and
excelsior filters also are used.
Sorghum sirup customarily is mar
keted in tin containers with screw
tops. The cans should be thoroughly
scalded before using.

WORLD WAR VETERANS, NOTICE
When the clean up squad reaches
Sumter at Court House on September,
28th to get action on the claims of
veterans of the World War, its big
gest problem will be to get in touch
with every ex-service man in this ter
ritory, who has a right to government
The squad is composed of experts
from the various government bureaus,
the Red Cross and the American Le
gion. They are familiar in every de
tail with the workings of the War
Risk Insurance Act, and various fea
tures of the dicerent plans of hospital
treatment, medical care and rehabili
tation work in general. As soon as
they establish personal touch with
the veterans, they are prepared to put
machinery in motion at once to get
ror them what is coming to them from
the government. In this work they
[lave every assurance of whole hearted
co-operation by the authorities in
The plan of campaign of the Squad
contemplates the avoidance of leng
:hy c6rrespondence and annoying, time
killing red tape, by getting at first
hnad all information as to each indi
vidual veteran's case and the ma
hinery is well oiled to get results
rmce it is put in motion.
However, the greatest problem that
confronts the workers is the estab
lishment of personal contact with the
men they would serve. Many of the
veterans, in lots of cases, those most
deserving of government aid, are il
literates. They (on't understand even
the meaning of "compensation," "re
habilitation" and 'vocational training,'
Many are located in isolated districts
where a newspaper is rarely seen.
These men w ould be tremendously
anxious to get the benefits of the aid
that the government is glhd to give,
if they knew that the Squad is right
At their doors to get it for them.
For this reason, the members of the
Squad ask that everyone who knows
1f an ex-service man who may be en
titled to aid, get in touch with him
andt inform him i as to whcn and where
the Squad will be, and] as to what the
Squad is anxsious to do for him. Squad
headquarters will be glad to receive
any information as to any veteran and
will use every energy to get in touch
w~ith him during its stay in Sumter
it Court lIous..
Disabled vetoranis who report to
sqiuadl headquarters will lbe furnishe'd
withI t ransportatlion hack home and
meaIs aindl lodgiing as long as they
hav'e business wvit h the clen iiup caim
paiiign. It is necessary for every v'et
'ian to b rinig along h1is d ischarige.
In a.blition to local cases, the squad
will take up the affairs and claims of'
veterans of ILee, Stunmter, Clarendon,
and Kersha x while in Sum ter.
