All Industry Which Commends Itself to
The amount of potato starch annually
used in this country is very large and
the quantity required is constantly in
creasing. .It is used as an article of
food by persons who can not obtain
potatoes, by brewers and confectioners.
It is employed for sizing new cotton
cloth and to some extent for giving
stiffness and a smooth surface to gar
ments that have recently been washed.
It is also used in connection with other
articles for making a coating for the
cloth covering for hams, shoulders,
bacon and dried beef. A very large
proportion of the potato starch used in
the United States is imported from
Germany and other countries on the
continent of Europe. A recent inves
tigation showed that about half a mill
ion pounds of potato starch of foreign
manufacture passed through the Chi
cago custom-house nnder another name
without the payment of duties. There
appears to be no reason why all the
potato starch used in tliis country can
not be produced here. Germany pos
sesses no special advantages for
producing potatoes or for the man
ufacture of starch. The extraction
of starch from potatoes, and the drying
and subsequent preparation of it are
very simple processes. During the war
with England in 1812 many families in
this country manufactured the starch
they used. The manufacture of starch
from potatoes, conducted in farm
houses, led to the construction of fact
ories in New England at the close of
the war. The introduction of railroads
and the appearance of the Colorado
potato beetle caused potatoes to become
nigh in most portions of the New En
gland States and resulted in closing up
most of the old potato starch factories.
The impoverishment of the soil in the
sections longest settled resulted in re
ducing the yield of the tubers from
which the starch was made.
At present the manufacture of potato
starch in this country is limited almost
entirely to Aroostook County, in the
extreme northern portion of Maine.
The yield of potatoes there is very
large, as the soil is rich and the climate
favorable to their production. Owing
to the distance from large towns and
the lack of cheap transportation, it is
more profitable to make starch from
the potatoes than to send them to
market. The town of Presque Isle,
Aroostook County, is the great center
of the potato-starch industry. The larg
est potato-starch factory in the world is
located there. It works up about 320,000
bushels of potatoes annually. There are
some twentv-five other factories in the
vicinity. The cost of a building there
for a factory of a capacity for working
up 4,500 bushels of potatoes per day is
from $1,500 to .$6,000. The cost of the
machinery is from $1,500 to $2,000.
Lumber, however, is very cheap, rough
boards suitable for a starch factory sell
ing for eight dollars per thousand.
Farmers generally receive twenty cents
per bushel for potatoes delivered at the
factory. The bushel is sixty-three
pounds. From this quantity of pota
toes nine or ten pounds of dry starch
are made. No value is attached to the
pulp from which the starcli has been
Apparently the manufacture of starch
from potatoes could be profitably in
troduced into Minnesota or Dakota. The
soil and climate are very favorable for
the production of potatoes, while the
cost of sending them to market is great.
The raising of potatoes could be very
advantageously carried on in connec
tion with the production of wheat. Af
ter the season for cutting grass and
harvesting wheat there is abundant
time for digging potatoes. It is much
easier to raise potatoes on a large scale
on a prairie where there are no stumps
or stones than in a region where they
are common. A good supply of nearly
pure and quite cool water is necessary
for the running of a potato-starch fac
tory. It is much cheaper to operate it
by steam than by water. Minnesota
and Dakota appear to have all the nat
ural requirements for the production
of potato starch. With the low price
of wheat, this neglected industry is
worthy of examination.— Chicago Times.
Was Jumbo an elejiliant? Rig and
tall as he was, he hail not attained to
his full size anil was expected td grow
for three or four years to come. He
had grown considerably since his ar
rival in America. His food consisted
of grain, bran, hay, vegetables, such
as carrots or beet roots, etc., and
of these articles he consumed be
tween five hundred anti six hundred
pounds per day. He drank about three
barrels of water a tlay. In addition to
his great size there wore several jie
culiar physical features about Jumbo
which excited much curiosity among
naturalists, anil led some eminent
scientists to express the opinion that lie
was not an elephant at all, but that he
was allied to the old anti now extinct
mastodon species. In his back there
was a deej) hollow, where, in other
elephants, there was a large convex
curve, and his head was curved in a
marked manner where other elephants
are hollow. His knees, too, were not
in tlie same jilaee as are those of other
elephants. They were-amich nearer
his thigh, making the upper part of his
leg unusually short and the under part
unusually long.— Kent (ting.) llcrUld.

UNDER TWO FLAGS.
A Pathetic Story of a Young Soldier Who
Served in Doth the Union and Confed
The civil war was such a big thing, it
lasted so long, and covered such a vast
exjianse of territory, that it was an easy
matter for a man to tight in both ar
mies, and escape detection and punish
ment as a deserter. A few months be
fore Georgia seceded a bright young
New Englander settled in one of our
country towns. Ilis Northern birth
caused him to be suspected, and on this
account ho was jirobably more out
spoken in the expression of secession
sentiments than he would have been un
der other circumstances. The State
went out of the Union, the trouble com
menced in earnest, and volunteer coin
jmnics began to organize and go to the
front.. Our New England friend felt
that the pressure of public ouinion was
too strong to be withstood. It was hard
to light his own people, but if ho did
not become a Confederate soldier, the
people were liable in some hour of mad
excitement to lynch him. So he donned
a suit of gray and trudged off to Vir
ginia with a musket on his shoulder.
The unwilling volunteer stood camp
life very well. He bore his part man
fully in many a skirmish and battle, and
in the course of time was made a lieu
tenant. He came very near going
through the war without a spot on his
record, but iu a fatal moment he yielded
to temptation and disgraced himself and
It was a cold wet day in April, 1865.
The Lieutenant had become separated
from his command on the march. He
lost his wav and threw himself on the
wet ground completely worn out. His
physical weakness depressed his mind,
and he gave himself up to a fit of de
spondency. A flood of bitter thoughts
rushed over him. Why should he, an
alien, risk his life in defense of a people
who hated him. Why should he strug
gle on, he knew not how many years
longer, lighting against his kinsmen and
friends! Following an impulse which
seomed irresistible, he rose to his feet
and set his face in the direction of the
Federal lines. Before nightfall ho was
in the eaniji of the enemy.
Tue poor fellow told his story
ward with mournful pathos. H
the Fédérais wanted to treat
as a spy. When they refused
to believe his tale of desertion he of
fered to volunteer as a proof of his
good faith. The otter was

found himself once more in active
service. Two days later General Lee
surrendered at Appomattox. In an
other month the deserter was mustered
blue uniform, and
Tiie man was in a quandary. He
dared not go back to his New England
home The people there all knew that
lie had been in the Confederate army.
On the other hand he could not go to
Georgia, where he would be denounced
and despised as a deserter. He drifted
to Boston, and there he narrowly
taped getting into pi 'son. His tongue
got him into tho trouble. He remarked
to a ladv at his boarding-house that
he would rather lie in an honored
Confederate grave down in Dixie
than own half of Boston. The lady
was furious. She reported the con
versation to the Provost Marshal, and
that officer sent a file of men to march

two days longer, he could have returned
to Georgia with a proud record as a tried
and true Confederate. As it was he felt

or Regent Street. In the center of the
carriageway also are large ornamental
gas-posts, protected from vehicles by
posts set in at a radius of about four
feet. These form a sort of oasis in the
midst of the street, and make
venient retreats for persons hemmed in
by vehicles while attempting to

oases is a policeman, whose duty it is to
