Soon after the train arrived in

Subsequently, he was placed under

One morning, who should call on
him but Daphne, darkly vri'ed, and
accompanied by her maid, who looked
a modish duenna in her Frenchified,
Daphne had been talking to a mu
tual friend, a brother officer of Dare's,
and this conversation had led her to
look more leniently upon Dare's of
fense. He was a brave, single-hearted,
high toned fellow, the friend had
said; singularly Inexperienced In the
ways of the world, and, where photo
graphs were concerned, scarcely re
sponsible for his actions. In this
case, his error might be visited with
severe punishment evon his dismis
sal from the service. Daphne had
vainly endeavored to persuade her
papa to withdraw his charges. And
now would the captain give Iter the
uafortunato picture, that she might
at once destroy it?
Amyas sighed deeply; however, he
brought out the picture, beautifully
developed and Inclosed in an envelope.
He gave it to Miss St. Cyr. who gave
it to her maid to carry. It did not

the case of Capt. Amyas Dare,
charged with "conduct unbecoming an
o (fleer and a gentleman," had met, re
ceived all the evidence collected, and
ere about to make their final de
cision. Uound to the strictest justice and
Impartiality, they did not propose to
let any feeling ot sympathy for the
accused Influence their verdict. They
had the dignity of the service to up
hold, with all Its Immortal traditions;
and Dare's conduct had been In the
last degree Inconsistent with thoso.
An unfavorable verdict seemed immi
nent; when, to the surprise of all, the
captain, who had had very little to
say In his own behalf, asked that a
witness be summoned It was sup
posed that all available testimony had
been gathered. But Dare explained
that tho only real witness for the de
fense wns the ankle photographed on
tho fatnl occasion.

A method of clarification of apple
Juice which is cheap and may be ap
plied on a small or large scale, is
clarification ly use of a cream sepa
rator. Repeated trials have shown
that a cream separator can successful
ly clarify the Juice, leaving only traces
of sediment in the product Absolute
clearness of the Juice Is not produced
by use of the machine, but practically
all sediment can be removed by this
process. In the experimental work to
bo described a hand-power cream sepa
rator of the disk type was employed.
The flr&t trial of the method Indicated
that a satisfactory clarification of ap
ple juice could readily be obtained by
tise of the separator, and many further
trials luvre confirmed these early indi
cations. The suspended matter in the

rator, while the clean juice runs out
through tho machine, the hoavier
particles originally present uie starch

the lower part of the tubular shaft in
the bowl of the machine, while a
heavy layer of albuminous material Is
invariably packed on tho inner side of
tho bowl and a higher layjr on the in
ner side of the bowl cover,
remain quite free from
When the space between the disks
and the sides of the bowl is quite filled
with sediment, the flow from the milk
screw ceases and the flow from the
cream screw is much increased. At
this time the machine should be
stopped and the bowl cleaned. The

Juice frpm the milk screw Is invariably
considerably clearer than that from
tho croam screw. The reason for this
is not apparent; the fact, however,
wns alwus observed. The juice from
the cream screw Is. in turn, much
clearer than the untreated juice.
The clarification of 23 gallons of
Juice, using one machine of the
capacity indicated and a juice contain
ing sediment in such quantity that a
run of that amount would fill the
space between the disks and the sides
of the bowl with sediment, requires
one hour and a quarter, the
sslng through the bowl twice.
As soon as the juice is clarified by
the separator, it must be sterilized in
closed containers. The points which
have been carefully determined ju this
work have been the lowest safe tern

In the work with bottles, quart
bottles of the champagne type were

water In a taak which could bo heat

One-gallon packers' cans were em
ployed. These were first carefully
rinsed with water, filled, sealed (rosin
dissolved In alcohol being used as
flux), and then heated in tho same
manner as the bottles. The juices em
ployed were thoroughly typical and
were clarified by passing twice
through the separator. A full half
hour was found by a careful test to
be necessarj for heating ho contents
of the can up to the bath when the
water in tho bath was cold to start
with, and this period was only slightly
shortened when the bath was hot at
the time the cans were placed in it.
Unfortunitely, the periods of heat
ing wore not short enough nor the
temperatures used low enough to indi
cate unsafe conditions, since none of
the cans spoiled; but proper treatment
was found to be very readily given at
low temperatures and for brief pe
riods. It was expected that the cans
which were only heated up to 149 de
grees F. (5 degrees C.) In the hot
water and then removed would sure
ly spoil. Theso cans remained sound,
however, and thus the period of heat
ing indicated as sufficient for canning
is unexpectedly short When the cans
j were removed, they were cooled over
night and allowed to stand in the
same room as that In which the bot
tles wore held. Owing to tho large
bulk of Juice In the cans of the size
employed (1 gallon). It Is evident that
the Juico was maintained at a steriliz
ing tomperature longer than if bottles
or small-sized cans had been used.
This fact must be kept in mind if the
rosults here obtained are applied to
other sizes than gallon cans.
For bottles, sound corks, well-soaked
in hot water, should be used.
These can be wired In before the bot
tles are heated: or tin cork holders,
which may be bought on the market,
may be used The exposed end of the
cork should be dipped in hot paraffin
or h"t grafting wax after heating, to
prevent the cork from drying out with
consequent serious danger of infection
of the bottled Juice.
No trouble was experienced in seal
ing the cans. As previously noted,
standard one-gallon packer's cans
wore employed. These had a 2 7-10
Inch opening and were filled to with
'in about one-quarter inch of tho open
ing. The can was then wiped and the
flux, consisting of rosin dissolved in
alcohol, was applied. Hemmed caps
were employed for sealing that is,
the tin cover which fitted over the
opening in the can was fitted with a
rim of solder. For sealing tho can, a
capping steel and soldering copper are
required, also a gasoline furnace for
heating the steel and copper, and a
supply of flux, colder, and sal am

experiments were carried on with suc

this procedure. This juice kept for
ten days without showing fermenta

emptied and for other purposes.
In the experiments with barrels,
and In all other 'work In which the
juice was heated except in bottles and
cans, a pasteurizer designed by Mr.
