What Is Done In the Camp and Where the Syrup Is Handled. A properly conducted maple-sugar camp in Vermont is well worth seeing, Many improvement? have been intro duced during the last few years. In tho center of the "orchard," or "bush," as it used to be called, is a commodious and well-equipped sugar-house, in which all the utensils are stored when not in use. The process of sugar-mak ing, as now conducted, is practically as follows: First, two or three men tap the trees. One goes ahead, and with a three-inch bit, makes an incis ion about an inch deep on the lee side of the tree. A second man inserts a round, double tin spile, or spout, about three inches long in the aperature. The spout not only conducts the sap, but has an arrangement for suspending the bucket beneath it. Lastly, a man hangs the buckets, which are either of wood or tin. Gathering the sap has been much simplified. The old way was to hitch a team of stout horses to a short sled carrying the "holder," a large wooden tub, holding several bar rels, in which the sap in the buckets was poured. Now leaders or wooden gutters are all run through the orchard. emptying into a large storage tank at the sugar house. In a brick framework In the sugar-house is set an iron arch with a square Iron chimney. For a large orchard of 2,000 trees the arch Is about 5x20 feet in area, 2 feet deep in front, and 10 Inches deep in the chim ney end. In the arch are set the evap orators, a deep boiling pan in front and four smaller and shallower pans further back. The : bottoms of the evaporatorg are deeply corrugated, nearly doubling the surface exposed to the heat. The boiling is done rapidly, as rapid boiling improves the quality of the sugar. The sap flows from tho tank through a hose with a strainer at tached into a regulator, which allows only a certain quantity to flow into the evaporator. At a certain point the sap is drawn by a siphon from the large evaporator into one of the small ones, the scum and settling being left be hind. In the last pan the liquid is evaporated to the syrup of commerce, weighing eleven pounds to the gallon. The most interesting process is "sugar ing off." The syrup is slowly boiled In the large pan until the experienced sugar-maker knows it is "done." The pan is then lifted off, and the mass Is turned into tubs, holding from ten to a hundred pounds. If it is to be made into cakes, it is stirred longer, till it be comes dry enough to retain its shape. The whiteness of maple syrup does not determine its price. It is due some what to the differences of soil and the amount of rain that has fallen into the sap. Pure maple sugar is a brownish amber in color, with a fine grain. If the grain is not fine, and if there are air holes in it it has probably been adulterated by cane sugar, glucose or clay by some wicked dealer, says the sugar-maker. The average yield per tree is about two pounds per season, the season lasting from four to six weeks, until frosty nights cease and the buds begin to swell, when the sap tastes strong and ceases to flow.
