THE STRONGS AT SULPHUR.
Mm. Kate Strong Writes of Their
Outing in Oklahoma*
Editor Reporter and its readers:
We are still at this town and are
feeling fine. Had a nice rain Sunday.
Bromide water is limited to a half
gallon to each person per day. As I
crossed Rock creek on the suspension
bridge this morning at 6:30 I notic
ed for the first time that the creek
runs upstream—it surely does. Mr.
Strong did not go down to the bro
mide spring for a day or two after
we arrived in" fact he did not have
to, as a widow lady offered to carry
the bottle of bromide water for him.
iWe thought that very accommodating
of her, but I did not care to have it
happen too often. Monday morning
Mr. S. got up at 5:30 and went down
to the bromide spring alone, without
asking me to go along, so I followed
him up and sat down near the en
trance, where I could see him with
out being seen. Sure enough pretty
Boon here came the widow with her
medicine jar, and up jumps Mr. S.
and wants another drink—and he'd
already taken six cups, so I stepped
up and asked for a drink and he
said: "Hello up to your old tricks,
are you?" and I said, "the same to
The attendance Sunday was 560
people. Still very dull have been
here ten days and as. yet have not
seen a better looking man than the
one I brought with me. Mrs. Harl
is still improving and is able to make
a few bets. She made one with Mr.
S. and lost it and begged part of it
back. Her socialist friend has gone
home did not remain for their pic
nic, which begins Thursday, so she
will have to go alone.
I am enjoying the novelty of sight
seeing and take particular delight in
gazing at the beautiful flowers. I
went one afternoon to beg a. bouquet
for a sick lady who is staying at the
Elmore house the yard was full of
such lovely flowers, I went in and
found the owner to be a squaw man
had an Indian wife and mother-in
law. I asked for a small bouquet,
and she said: "I cai\not give you
any every time I give any away my
husband makes such a fuss about it
—I must not give you any." The
next evening as I was going inside
the sulphur well I met the man. I
picked up a rock and threw at him,
but missed. I hope he will be dead
by the time I come again.
Court'is in session. Guess I will be
more careful or I might have to send
for a Geary lawyer. I have seen sev
eral patches of Sudan grass, which
looks like it ought to be a good for
age crop. I think more of it should
be sown in Blaine county. Well this
will be my last letter as we will be
home soon. KATE STRONG.

i»lake Apples Into Cider.
Many Iowa counties are experienc
ing an unusually heavy crop of fall
and winter apples and the problem of
converting the windfalls and under
grade fruit into cash is in many
places a serious one.
Dairy and Food Commissioner Bar
ney, who has given this matter con
siderable attention, has prepared the
following suggestions which may be
useful to those who wish to utilize
their excess crop of low grade apples:
Manufacture of Sweet Cider: The
apples for this purpose should be
clean, free from dirt, leaves, twigs
and rotten fruit. Have cider mill and
press conspicuously clean and ret lean
after each' day's pressing. Toe bar
rels and kegs in which the cider is
handled should be thoroughly wash
ed and then scalded with from three
to five gallons of boiling hot water to
each barrel. Do not put cider in met
al containers. As soon as the cider is
pressed put it in the cellar or other
place where it will keep as cold as
possible until sold. Clean, cold cider
will remain sweet for several days,
whereas turbid and warm eidfer be
comes hard very quickly. The ap
pearance of cider as well as the keep
ing qualities may be improved by
first straining and then running
through an ordinary cream separator.
The "working" of cider'may be re
tarded for several days by the addi
ction of benzoate of soda. The food
law, however, does not permit of the
addition of more than one-eighth of
an ounce of benzoate of soda to the
gallon. Larger amount of benzoate
may be injurious to the health of the
consumer. Where benzoate of soda is
added to the package must be label
ed so as to show that fact. The sale
of cider which has become hard or
even slightlyly hard is not permitted
in dry territory, as such cider con
tains alcohol. Farmers selling cider
in such territory should exercise par
ticular care to see that their product
is fresh and sweet.
Bottled Cider: Cider can be easily
sterilized in bottles, jars or jugs in a
manner similar to that used for put
ting up grape juice. Sterilized in this
keep indefinitely and
is preferred by vmany to grape juice
as a summer beverage. It has about
the same food value as grape juice.
Boiled Cider: Boiled cider is use
ful in the home kitchen. It may be
made by boiling the sweet cider dovvp
to about one-fifth to one-sixth origi
nal volume, after which it is poured
into sterilized bottles, jugs or jars
and then sealed.
Vinegar: The manufacture of cider
vinegar on the farm opens up an un
limited field for those having a large
excess of low grade apples. While
the manufacture of vinegar requires
some care in order to secure a good
product, anyone who will follow di
rections carefully will be sure to turn
out a marketable product. Bulletin
No. 12 of the Dairy and Food Com
mission gives full instructions for the
manufacture of cider vinegar, and it
may be obtained free of charge by
any citizen of Iowa. Dairy and Food
Commissioner Barney has signified
his willingness to answer inquiries
pertaining to the manufacture of ap

Mr. Barney has often pointed out

cider and vinegar are shipped into

good fruit will be rotting in the or

If I go forth and shoot a guy whose
cows have spoiled my field of rye, to
prison I must wend they will not let
me be at large they'll try me on a
murder charge, and hang me in the
end. No sympathy shall I receive
no mourner at my grave will grieve,
or weep some briny juice they'll say,
"He's a callous brute, who would a
fellow mortal shoot, for such a slim
excuse." But if my rusty sword I
swing and whoop for some bewhisk
ered king, I can't commit a crime,
the more I butcher, maim and slay,
the more the folks around will say,
"His actions are sublime!" I do not
need a thin excuse to cook the other
fellow's goose I shoot him down on
sight, 1 plug some white-faced beard
less lad, I rob some children of their
dad, and all I do is right. It's murder
if yob guard your own but if you
guard a threatened throne, it loyalty
becomes so when you go a gent to

was supposed to be Incurable. For a great
