LIMIT WILL HE CHANGED.
Iiag Will ProbaWy lie Reduced to
Three Ituc-ks in a Season.
The deer season which closed Oc
tober 31 may be the last in which
each hunter will be allowed to kill
five deer. State Game Warden W. L.
i'inley is working for a reduction' of
the limit from five to two or three,
probably two, and a measure to that
effect will be introduced at the next
session of the legislature, says the
Oregon is the most liberal state in
the Union at present, and although
deer are still plentiful, the fact that
their sequestered glens are being ap
proached by steam and electric rail
ways makes a reduction of the limit
necessary for the perpetuation of the
species, according to Mr. Fiuley.
California and Washington, states
which have as much deer ground as
Oregon, allow the hunter to get but
two deer is any season, while Mon-
tant permits three.
This measure may find consider
able opposition from some hunters,
but Mr. Finley is confident that the
majority will be glad to see a reduc
tion of the number allowed.
The season past has been marked
by the absence of infractions of the
laws, for at least the absence of
cases brought to the notice of offi
cials. Other years many hunters
were usually caught for killing deer
after the season had legally closed.
This year only one such case was
brought forward. John Straight of
Oregon City was arrested for killing
deer on November 2. He was caught
in the hills near Cazadero. That he
killed the deer after the season
closed was riot definitely ascertained,
but he at least had the deer in his
possession, which is also an infraction
of the law.
CIDER VINEGAR AND ITS MAKING
(By P. J. O'Gara, Pathologist in
Time Required to Make Vinegar.
As indicated above, it will be un
derstood that the time necessary for
the conversion of the sugar into alco
hol and the alcohol into acetic acid
depends largely on the temperature,
presence of the proper organisms,
and ready access of air. The temper
ature at all times should be as near
75 degrees F. as possible; yeast
plants should be present in sufficient
numbers to control the first stage of
the fermentation and give rise to al
cohol by a change of the sugar. Spe
cific bacteria are also needed for the
second stage in vinegar fermentation.
They must be in sufficient numbers
to control acetic acid fermentation
an should be aded in the form of
mother-of-vinegar or from pure cul
tures of the vinegar germ grown un
der laboratory conditions.
The changes taking place in the
production of vinegar require oxygen
of the air, and for this reason the
containers should not be completely
filled nor should they be bunged
tightly. Free access of air is abso
luet'y essential to production of vine
gar. If the above instructions are
carefully followed, it is possible to
produce good merchantable vinegar
In from six to twelve months. If the
apple juice has ben carefully nan
died and cleanliness observed, an ex
cV,ent Product will result. When
aceti fermentation has gone far
enough t0 Produce 4 2 to 5 per cent
of acetiC .acid, the containers should
be made as a possible and tight
ly corked iif order to prevent de
structive fermentation of acetic acid
and consequent deterioration of the
vinegar. If desired, the vinegar may
be drawn from the barrel or cask,
filtered and bottled.
Staiulurd Vinegar Perilled.
Vinegar has been defined a "a
condiment made from various sugary
or starchy substances by alcoholic"
and subsequent acetic fermenta
tion." In the United States "Stand
ards of Purity for Food Products"
vinegar made from apples is defined
as follows: Vinegar, cider vinegar,
apple vinegar is a product made by
the alcoholic and subsequent acetous
fermentations of the juice of the ap
ple, and contains not less than 4 per
cent acetic acid and not less than
1.6 per cent of apple solids. If vine
gar is made from pure juice in the
way indivated in this article, there
will be no difficulty in meeting the
legal requirements. Starting with
an apple must containing 11 per cent
or sugar, -the final product should
easily contain more than 5 per cent
acetic acid, which Is more than re
quired by law. The method of test
ing vinegar will be given in the bul
letin which is in preparation.

The "Ready Letter Writer ("W. S.

in "proud Massachusetts," appeared
in the Tidings of October 31, has, in
a sense, met with his reward, as
may be judged from the tenor of the
subjoined communication, just re

with such an appetizing list of mar
riageable young ladies in Ashland

the Mabel appearing in this corre
spondence may, in a self-sacrificing
spirit, be induced to bring this wor

that Mabel is to the manner born

matrimony stand in the way of man

The Edison of the Navy.
In the December American Maga
zine appears 'an article about Henry
C. Mustin, who is called "the Edison
of the Navy," because he invented
and perfected the sighting devices
which have made possible the use of
the giant guns which modern battle
ships are equipped. An extract from
the article follows:
"Of course telescopes are tele
"It was about the year 1885 that i
the telescope was first tested in con
junction with the firing of a modern
gun. The tremendous concussion
broke the lens, however, so that in
order to use it at all the telescope
had to be detached from the gun
before firing, thereby entaling a loss
of several seconds in time after aim
had been taken.
"Later, to obviate this defect, the
telescope was adjusted to the axis of
the gun by a system of parallel arms
moving up and down in unison with
the gun, though detached from it.
This, of course, was a great improve
ment, but there were still grave prac
"Well, along in the early '90s a
young midshipman at Annapolis,
lean-faced and square of jaw, built
like a medium-sizer Hercules, quiet
mannered, but a bulldog in the foot
ball field, interested himself in the
study of optics. Naturally enough
his thoughts were directed to the de
fective lenses of the gun telescopes.
The lenses brok when the guns were
fired, therefore it was necessary to
invent a non-breakable lens.
"One day, years later, while sta
tioned in Washington, Mustin called
a few of his brother officers to the
window near his desk on the second
floor of a building in the navy yards.
He showed them a lens with a metal
band 'shrunk' around its circumfer
ence. Then he opened the window
and deliberately threw the lens with
all his might upon the brick pave
ment below. The others knew of his
pet hobby, and thought he had given
it up in disgust and had taken this
way of telling them so. But he put
on his hat, lit a cigarette, and bade
them follow him. He led them down
the stairs amid considerable joking
and out to the spot where the lens
lay on the pavement. The glass was
unbroken. The one great defect of
the telescope sight had ben overcome,
and Mustin had made possible the
long-range gunnery of the hiodern
navy. The thua ot tne nttie glass
disk with its metal collar upon the
brick pavement was the signal for
the nations to begin to build their

A Word About Printing
With printing, as most other things, that which costs
the least is not usually the cheapest. In printing, that
job is the cheapest which best serves its purpose, regard
less of cost. The additional expense of a batch of well
printed, high-grade stationery over a lot of cheap, slop
pily printed stuff is but little. That little is often returned
many times over on one letter because the artistic or busi
nesslike heading of the sheet favorably impressed the
recipient as to the standing of the firm and brought the
When you are looking for a doctor yoii do not shop
around to see which one will come the cheapest. Then
why, when your business needs a tonic, should you shop
around for the clieapest business doctor? What you want
is results. If you are issuing a dodger the first and last
question should not be what print shop will do it the
cheapest, but which one can. turn out a job which will
.hold the attention of the largest proportion of those who
glance at the handbill. The same is equally true regard
ing a pamphlet, a circular or a booklet. ,
Again, what you want is results. We believe that the
Ashland Tidings can get them for you. Not only can we
dress you copy up in neat, up-to-date, attractive type, but
we can, if you wish, help you to array your thoughts in
bright, catchy language, thus making the job more nt-
tractive and convincing.
When in need of anything in the line of printing let
