LIMPSE AT THE GREAT FARMS
f That raise vegetables.
. M Machnstts County Which Supporta
a .rowing and Profitalilc Inrltistry.
WHere Much of Our Canned Fruits
and Vectalles Come From.
J folk county in this state is the center
if We canning industry in the east, anil
protibly more farmers' produce is raised
here directly for the factories than In any
other eonnty in the United Stntes. It has
a fertile soil, a genial climate anil a pro
gressive class of farmers, and if they have
not solved the problem of his profits in
farming they have nt least d iscovered the
way to make their farms give them a good
living. The qnestirm of finding a market
for all of their surplus goods is answered
for them by the factories, where nearly
everything tp-own on the farm can lie sold.
The farms as a rule consist of five, ten and
fifty acres, although there arc some larger
ones situated farther buck: but small
farms prevail in numbers and profitable
ness. Corn, topiatoes, beans, apples, aspara
gus and similar products are raised on
these firms for the canning factories.
Every season the farmers make a new
agreement cither to sell al! of their pro
duce to the factories at so much per ton or
bushel, or take their chances of marketing
what thry can in the oil ios mid selling the
surplus at the faciories for whatever they
can get. In some few instances the factory
people own the. land ami 1 -ise it to farm
er who sell till their prc'.uce to them.
Another im tliod in vojriie i-t- hire farm
ers to run t iie fanes

About the 1st of Sept em

Many of these

ital.s of corn, cut
i'!y for boiling, fill
The corn is brought in Ihe husk to the
factory by the cartload. s soon as it is
husked it is cut eft by patent knives and
passed to the weigher, who gives the exact
weight to the farmer and to the head of
the factory. The corn has to be attended
to as soon as it arrives, for if allowed to
stand any length of time it would heat
and spoil Oct . rally the factory dislikes
to handle com t! at has been hauled more
than four miles, rr any that has not been
fresh picked. Ti e purchaser for the fac
tory always exan ines it carefully before it
is given t ithe hnskers.
When tiie corn is weighed it is passed
through a series of spindles which ijuickly
take out nil siik aad cobs that may remain.
After this nearly everything is "done by
machinerj. It is passed into a hopper, and
from this it is poured into cans that rotate
around in frames. Another m.-i'jhine wipes
the cans dry and shoves them along to
have a patent cap put on and soldered
down by n en. A packer puts the cans in
a rack, wh.ch carries three dozen at a time
to the hot water bath. In this the corn is
thoroughly heated, und then a hole is
made in each can to allow the steam and
hot air to escape. It is a critical moment
then, and the men who handle the cans
next must understand their business. Just
as soon as the steam is out a drop of solder
is put over the hole, and the cans are then
ready for the final cooking.
A huge tank is arranged for this cook
ing, end it is doneentirely by steam. Each
factory has its timo limit for cooking the
corn, and it is a trade secret that few care
to divulge. The whole successor the proc
ess depends upon the amount or cooking
and the pressure of the steam at this point.
When they are properly cooked the cans
are turned ever to the labelers and pack
ers, who prepare them fur market.
Other vegetables receive similar treat
ment. The tomatoes are first scalded, and
then carried to long benches where women
rapidly take the peels off, after which they
pass through the same process ns the corn.
Squashes are peeled entirely by machine,
and the seeds taken out and the meat cut
iuto slices by machine before being boiled
and crowded into cans. Paring machines
are spinning around all the time, taking
the peel off apples, pears and quinces. In
fact, after they are prepared for the cans,
all fruit and veget alios are treated about
the same, with the exception of a change
in the time of cooking and the amount of
sugar added to them.
The output of one of these factories aver
ages about 170,000 J pound cans of corn,
the same amount of tomatoes and squashes.
20,000 cans of nppl-s and the same of
quinces, 5,(HW cans of pears and liO.OOO cans
of beans. This means altogether lietween
400,000 and aoe.OOO cans of fruits and Veg
etables. Most of these cans are the 2-pound
ones, but a few ure gallon cans. An idea
of the canning indn-itry in the United
States may be gathered from these figures
when it is stated that there are more than
2,000 canuing concerns in the country. The
output of many of them is much less, but
a good ma.iority average the highest fig
ures. The profits of the business for the
factories appear to be satisfactory, for
there is generally a sale for all theircanned
goods one season or another, and tiie farm
ers in this, section nt least are contented
with their share in the enterprise. Mas
