KEEPING EARLY MADE CIDER SWEET.
Various Methods Described for Arrest ins;
After r'ermeutation of This Beverage.
It ia a difficult matter to keep cider
sweet that ia made early in tbe season,
owing iurtly U the immaturity and im
perfections of the fruit, but principally
to the tendency to fermentation caused
by a warm atmosphere. Some persona
use Hulpliite of lime (not sulphate), one
eighth of an ounce to a gallon of cider;
otlit-rs put a few ounces of mustard seed
in each liarrel to arrest fermentation at
the Kijnt desired; others aain consider
the old time method of scalding to lie
one of the best and least cl'Jis'tic.naUe.
To effect tliia the cider should, after it
h.ia first slihllv fei iueiitod, be drawn or
dipped from the ca.sk s, where it has been
standing to settle, into lare copjier ket
tles or an old coper si ill, and be heated
just up to the boiling point and no longer,
when it should lie again put into oien
casks to nettle and Ut-ome cohL It will
then be ready to be tiK'bily bunged in
bum-Is and atored away.
Ihiring the heating a large quantity
of scum will rise to the top to lie
skimmed (!. and during the cooling
most of the impurities still held in solu
tion will he dc Kisited as sediment in the
bottom of the casks. While cider thus
created w ill afterwards taste slightly of
tho scalding, it will not be unpleasant to
those who like it sweet, and is to lie pre
ferred to that in which fermentation has
bs?n arrested by mustard seed or chem
icals. This process will stop fermenta
tion at the rijjht point to leave it sweet,
and will quite thoroughly cleanse it from
Impurities, but will eifec-t it .unfavor
ably for making into vinegar afterwards.
By making the early falling fruit into
vinegar and deferring cider making un
til November, tho fruit can all be worked
up. and whatever fi ler is made will he
riKiiigh I letter in quality to compensate
for the loss in quantity.
The several rules for digging and plans
for tanking, billing and bousing sweet
potatoes are based umui a few simple
principles which seem to be generally
adopted, viz.: That the potatoes should
be dug about the time a killing frost is
expected, or immediately thereafter; that
they should be handled so as to prevent
bruising and cutting; that they should
be put up in such manner as to keep of
uniform and rather low temperature
(above freezing!; that they should 1
kept dry. The plan of pouring dry sand
among the potatoes in the hill or house,
so as to fill all the interstices, is excel
lent. We have kept potatoes sound,
sweet and dry until potatoes "come
atain" by packing in barrels and filling
with dry sand. The Kind tends to pre
vent sudden changes of temperature, it
absorbs and equalizes moisture and prolv
ably prevents (mechanically) tbe spread
of the fungus spores throughout the bulk.
The simplest way to bill the potatoes
(largely practiced at tbe south) is to dig
when the ground is dry, if possible,
about the time of first frost Drive a
post in the ground and saw off about
four feet high; cover the ground thickly
with dry pine struw; place the potatoes
carefully, piling them as sts?p as they
will lie, and about t wenty-tive bushels to
the hill; cover the jiotatoes w ith pine
straw or dry corn stalks, regularly laid,
not less than six inches deep; cover over
all with dirt dug from around the outer
edge of the bill, at the first rather shal
low, but adding more dirt as cold weath
er approaches, until the earth is a foot
thick at every point. Southern Culti
vator. Praetirai Suggestions to VTheet Graven.
The following suggestions, based on re
sults of experiments of the Indiana sta
tion, are furnished by Professor Latta:
Select a hardy, prolific wheat, adapted to
your soil, and stick to it Give it good
treatment and it will not "run out."
Bow not less than six pecks of sound seed
to the acre. Plow wheat ground early,
and harrow immediately after plowing.
You can thus more easily and more
thoroughly pulverize the soil. If ground
breaks up cloddy, use heavy roll alternat
ing w ith some form of harrow or culti
vator that will bring clods to surface. If
manure or fertilizers are used, mix thor
oughly w ith soil in every case. Use only
rotted manure, if any, and apply after
plowing. Reserve the fresh manure for
the corn crop. Before trying a fertilizer
get the experience and advice of farmers
whose soils are similar to your own. Test
the untried brands carefully, in a small
way, before deciding upon their exten
sive use. This is the I test course, for the
reason that even the highest grades often
act very differently on different soils.
Adopt a rotation of crops suited to your
soil and needs. Bear in mind that soils
and climate vary greatly in different lo
calities, and that these potent factors in
crop production will very materially
effect the results of your work. There
fore, study your local conditions.

The claims made for it are that it ia

upright pieces prevent the pigs from
