This sugar has as good a' n. -ing properties as the cane ma ppleand can be used for every thing bbt preserving with the S as atisfactory results. The industry of growing sugar betis interesting; the soil whge the $'ate are grown is so greto mproved by the crop that farmers would b. well repaid for planting 'them though there was no sale S"the.

So far therd is no difierence in the price nor in many of the labels on sacoks and barrels, so far as we know, It is not true that sugar in jures teeth; an example that dis proves this old charge is' that the negroes of the West Indies have the finest teeth in the world and their diet is principally an enor mous qnantity of sugar. It is -ibadj p ved that sugar induces a gout,. In fact sugar is a nutritive and of itself most wholesome. The California Experiment SStation has made some remarka , b experiments and investiga. v tione i.ruits and says that the food luei:dthe efrit diet is due 1i4a a Pr U 4.' r~hF. e. r Dried fruits like dates, raisins and figs contain greater amounts t of sugar thnn the fresh fruit, d sometimes it is over fifty per cent. 1 Cereals and other cooked foods v sweetened with these evaporated o fruits ar, most wholesome. A great many statements about t glucose have been made and por- t ents have been prohibiting their young. folks indulging in confec tions supposed to be made from t it. The truth is that glucose is a t syrup made from corn and entire ly harmless, when well made. This is called, "starch" sugar. It d is not so sweet as beet and cane sugar, but it has definite food value and is perfectly healthful. Because of its cheapness it enters into almost all candy making processes and it is well adopted for this purpose. The corn syrups cannot com. pare with the real sorghum or cane syrup, but this last is diffi cult to secure in cities and does not have good keeping qualities.
