ENOUGH GLASS JARS
TO HOLD ALL FRUIT
(Special to Yuma Daily Examiner.)
:WlASfflNGTQNf Aug 13. Reports
received by the" United States depart
ment of agriculture indicate that there
will be enough glass jars, new and -old
together, during the entire canning
season to take care of the bulk of the
perishable fruits and vegetables.
Manufacturers state that of one type
of jar alone 900,000 gross have been
distributed during the present season.
The manufacturing capacity for this
type of jar is approximately 6000 gross
per day, or 85,000,000 jars during the
next 100 days, and the capacity can
be increased if necessary.
Manufacturers of other types of
glass containers are prepared, it is
stated, to turn out many thousands
of gross a day. Twp weeks ago glass
companies were ready to distribute
immediately enough containers to hold
over 18,000,000 quarts of fruits and
The new jars to be manufactured
in time for this season's canning, it
is estimated, will enable American
housewives to put up over 2,000,000
packs of beans, corn, peas, tomatoes,
peaches, plums and apples, raised in
home gordens of bought in the market
when the supply is plentiful.
These figures do not take into ac
count the great quantities of jars in
stores and on housewives' shelves.
Any kind of bottles, old or new, that
can be properly .sealed can be used
instead of cans or jars for conserving
many perishable food products, ac
cording to experts of the department
of agriculture. While glass or crock
ery jars provided with sealing devices
are needed for canning vegetables and
fruits, bottles and jars not so provid
ed can be used for some other prod
ucts. Preserves, marmalades, jellies,
and other fruit preparations in which
thick syrup is used, can be put up in
large-necked bottles and jars and seal
ed with paraffin, and fruit juices can
be placed even in small-necked bot
Use Your Old Jars and Bottles
Jars and large-necked bottles can bs
capped with paper and paraffin, or, in
the case of jellies and stiff marma
lades, with paraffin alone. Small-neck
ed bottles, for use in putting up fruit
juices, can be sealed in the following
manner: Make a cotton stopper, press
it into the neck of the bottle and leave
during the sterilization or boiling pe
riad. To sterilize, set the botUe in
boiling hot water up to the neck and
let it remain for 40 minutes at a tem
perature of 165 degrees Fahr. Then
remove the bottle, press the cork,
which has been baked in the oven for
6ne hour, in the top over the cotton,
immediately, and dip the top into
melted wax or paraffin. Don't miss

Because, It is said, her affection
for a young official on the Mexican
customs house in Mexicall was not
returned, Ignacia Valesquez,. aged 18,
a girl of unusual beauty, living in Mex
ican, committed suicide Saturday
morning by swallowing a large quan
tity of, strychnine. Her body, dressed
as if she had intended leaving the
house, was found on her bed, and by
her side was a bottle that contained
the poison. It was half filled with
the drug, and bore the label of a drug
store in San Diego.
The body was prepared for burial
at the Hems undertaking parlors, and
was interred Saturday evening in the
Mexicall cemetery. The authorities
conducted an examination, and found
that her act of self-destruction was
The girl left two letters, one to
her mother, and the other to the
young customs official. ' The latter
stated Saturday evening that Mrs.
Valesquez refused to give him the
letter addressed to him, and said he
could not even guess at its contents.
He was apparently much surprised
and deeply grieved at the girl's rash
act. He claimed to have considered

SHOULD CHANGE PRESS BRIDLE.
The bureau of public information at
Washington has been busy placing
restrictions around the loyal American
press. It has accused many newspa
pers of breach of trust without proving
the case. The regulations laid down
at Washington for papers to heed are
not all necessary onesj some of them,
such as withholding news already pub
lished abroad being foolish.
Instead of hammering and nagging
the loyal newspapers of the country,
newspapers that have assisted the gov
ernment in every way at considerable
expense the administration should
put a few obstacles in the way of
the treacherous publications in the
German language that are issued in
this country without any efforts being
made to curb them.
Freedom of the press is a necessary
thing in a democracy, but consistent
disloyalty of the press is a serious
thing that a democracy should not per
mit These pro-kaiser newspapers
should be squelched and that speedily.
This war against Germany and against
all that the German government
stands for has become a personal war
to all true Americans. These Ameri
cans demand undivided loyalty. There
is not room enough in America for
an unlicensed pro-German press. If
some of the things that have been
said by German language newspapers
in the United States had been said
about the Berlin government by Eng
lish language newspapers in Germany,
the one responsible for the statements
would either be locked securely in a
safe prison or laid away "for keeps"
at the hands of a firing squad. As
Colonel Roosevelt so aptly said: "The
English language ought to be good
enough for any real American to
speak, read or write, just now." Doug

that they may report for examination,
but it is understood that this can not
be done. A request was made by a
number of the boys to have the board
send its examiners to Parker, where
all those residing in northern Yuma
county could come for examination at
very little expense. It is reported that
this request was also turned down,
and it appears that the only recourse
for those without funds Is to await
