FARM NOTES BY
THE COUNTY AGENT
Interesting .to cane syrup produc--ers
-is the announcement from the de
partment of agriculture at Urashing
tcn that a, process has beeri worked
opt by the bureau of chenxlstry for
making,, syrup that will not ferment
or turn to sugar.' We have, a letter
from the . chief chemist, ' e:tr laining
the process and offering: to give dem
onstrations of tHe.v method; to the
farmers of this county if they are in
terested As . soon tas definite plans
for these demonstrations" can be
worked out, we will i advertise s the
meeting places and date3. V
The great trouble-with syrup has
been that ivhen made thin enough not
t, crystaHize, it would ferment in
summer and when made thick so as
to prevent fermentation fit . would
turn to sugar. Either trouble is an
obstacle to handling syrup in bulk and
has made necessary the practice of
using air-tight containers with pro
per sterilization. The new m thod
involves the use of a little extract of
yeast when the cane juice is boiled
down half way to syrup arid leaving
it to stand unfinished, for twelve
hours when ie cooking hi resumed
and carried 4 on m the regniar way.
i The extra expense is very small, but
extra barrels or tanws wilf be requir-
cd, and a second kettle or. pan where
a large' amount of syrup js to be
made.' ! ---'-. . -
,Now is the time to select the hens
for laying the eggs from which to
raise pullets next year. The hens
that have been laying all summer
and fall and have not yet fully moult
ed are the good layers. They haven't
shed their feathers because they have
been laying. Those hens, that molted
along from July to September are the
poor layers. They shed o:f then -because
they stopped laying and had
nothing else to do. They will never
be pVofitable egg ' producers and
should be eaten. or sold. Mark the
good laying hens so they will be
known - in the spring, and save eggs
from them to raise pullets,
: .- -
Scuppernong grape vines should be
pruned as ; soon as the leaves have
fallen for the reason that there will
be less bleeding then than at any
other time of the year. Thinning cat
the vines improves the crop of grapes
and tends to lengthen the life of the
plant If-a larger vine is Wanted, the
arbor should be added" to as fast as
the limbs grow -out. If the young
branches are allowed to hang down,
the vine is checked in its growth and
will never attain much site.
