PLAN FOR DRYING FRUIT.
An Evaporator Takes the Place of Old
Tho old way of drying npplos,
peaches nu? other fruit In tho sun is
not always desirable on account of
the worms and bugs getting Into the
dried product and also from the fact
that much loss results from the un
certainly of the weather. Thou tho
fruit Is of better quality when dried
In the evaporator. A few dollars' out
lay and a little lime spent in the dull
season, when other farm work Is not
pressing, will be all that Is necessary
to construct an evaporator that la
equal In till the essentials to one that
would cost many times Hint amount.

beginning already, for you will have
two sales already built, but It Would
bo more accessible If constructed In
the center of the room.
A very convenient size is four foot
square With a small door near tin
floor to permit access to tho stove and
another door thrco feet or more from
the iloor, which Is the full width of
tbe evaporator and reaches to the cell
iny with hinges at the bottom, so that
it may be let down on to some support
and so form a shelf when open.
The stovepipe should be arranged In
tin' form of a spiral so as to throw off
as much beat as possible, and this
may be accomplished by using com
mon elbows and a few short joints of
pi ie. Set tbe first elbow on the stove
opening and turn the next one hori
zontally, making at least one circuit
of the compartment within n foot of
tho top of tin; Btove, completing an
approximate circle about three feet In
diameter. Then tbe plpo may be car
ried outside through a convenient
opening ami run up. either on the In
side of the main blinding or outside.
Only one set of trays may be used
in tills evaporator, ami theso will be
hold in pl.n o by cleats nailed to the
inside at stieb intervals as will allow
the trays to slide one above the other
and should extend from jusL above the
eoll of pipe to the celling. Tho trays
' when tilled witb fruit are put In and
removed through the largo upper door
: and arc no constructed that thoy till the
space entirely, being four feet square.
The trays should be made so that
; they can be used Cither sale up. Bight
