FREEZING FRUIT LATEST METHOD OF PRESERVA TION FOR WINTER USE. That the utilization of freezing stor age for the preservation of berries, other small fruits, and tomatoes could be profitably extended is the belief of specialists of the Bureau of Markets, United States Department of Agri curturc. Many ice cream manufactur ers and canners would be benefited by adopting practicable methods of hold ing such products for manofacturiug purposes, say the specialists. It is pointed out that the preserva tion of fruits by freezing is cheaper than canning them, especially when tin containers are scarce and costly as at present; and that the frozen fruit, held at the proper temperatures, has a more natural flavor than canned or dried fruit. The experimenters found fruit preserved by freezing to be fully as satisfactory as fresh fruit and superior to canned or dried fruit for use in making ice creams and slier berts, and for cooking into pies, pre serves, jellies and other desserts and confections. The frozen fruits after thawing are not well suited for eating alone in a raw state, but are consid ered very platable wheueaten before thy have completely thawed. When used as ingredients for desserts and confections best results will be ob tained if they are combined before they are free from ice. 8 FEET 6 INCHES TALL AND WEARS 24 SHOE Arriving on board the Olympic at New York City, Wednesday, was a man by the name of Eu gene Arcean from Europe.
