pounds, or cane syrup, 3 pints; and 4
gallons of water. Pour this brine over
the meat after it has been trimmed,
cooled, and snugly packed in clean
barrels or boxes.
It is important that every part of
the meat be well covered by the solu
tion. A ten-pound ham should stand
in the brine about forty days, and a
fifteen-pound ham sixty days. The
brine should be examined every week
as there is always some possibility
of its souring and spoiling the meat.
If the briDe becomes sour, remove all
of it, wash the meat and the contain
er, and pour a freshly made solution
over the meat.
The dry curing method is described
as follows: After tbe meat has been
thoroly cooled, place each piece on a
clean, bleached muslin cloth about a
yard square, or an opened flour sack,
after covering the cloth with news
papers. Place the ham or shoulder
skin side down on top of the papers
and apply the following:
To a fifteen-pound ham, take 1
teacup of granulated sugar, 2 tea
spoons of black pepper, and 1 table
spoon of cayenne pepper. Place all in
a vessel and mix thoroly. Rub this
mixture into the meat until every
part has absorbed all it will, doing
the work thoroly. After this applica
tion, fold the cloth entirely around
the meat, being careful that every
piece is well covered, and bang in a
cool place-
Meal that has been cured in brine
will have a better flavor if it is smok
ed after it has been dried by hanging
in a cool place. Hickory chips or hard
maple, with corn cobs, make the best
smudge for this work. Pine or soft
woods should not be used. —Agricul-
tural News Service.

Americans Eating Less Meat;
Number cf Animal s Declines
Figures and charts on the meat in
dustry of the United .States showing
that the consumption of meat is de
creasing are given in an exhibit, en
tit ed "Livestock Statistics,” by the
I United States Department of Agricul
ture at the International Livestock
I Exposition at Cchiago, December 2 to
9.
These statistics show that the Unit
ed States, while still among the prin
cipal meat-eating antions of the world,
is undergoing a general decline both
in per capita consumption of meat
and in the number of food animals in
proportion to the population. This
situation is illustrated strikingly by
a chart of the trend cf human live
i stock population in the United States
from 1850 to 1922. Among live stock
the number of swine is the most var
iable, and sheep show the greatest
decline. The relative position of the
curves in this chart at the present
time indicate that the nation will
i probably experience increasing dif-
I Acuity in suplying its ever-increasing
population xvith sufficient meat pro
; ducts, and at the same time providing
i a surplus of these products for ex
port. I
The principal meat-eating nations
of the world, in order of per capita
consumption,' are Argentina, Austra
lia,, and New* Zealand, with the United
States fourth.

New Method Effective in Boil
Weevil Control
Keen interest in the new method of
fighting the boll weevil, worked out
by the Florida State Experiment
Station, is being taken by the Bureau
of Entomology of the United States
Department of Agriculture. Tbe new
method consists of the removal and
destruction of all squares present on
the plants at a time when about two
squares to the plant are present.
This operation destroys a large num
ber of the weevils,and is immediately
followed by a thorough dusting to
poison the terminal buds where the
remaining weevils are forced to feed.
In experiments conducted in north
ern Florida, the treated fields averag
ed 439 pounds of seed cotton per acre;
the untreated checks averaged only
164 pounds- of seed cotton per acre,
showing an average increase of 275
pounds of seed cotton per acre in all
tests. The average cost of treatment
for the entire season was per
acre.
This method apparently offers a
means of controlling the boil weevil
on low* yielding land, on which it has
so far been unprofitable to use the
dusting method. Avery large propor
tion of the cotton crop is produced
on low yielding land. The Bureau of
Entomology urges a widespread and
thorough trial of this method during
j the coming season wherever the con
ditions appear suitable for its use.

Dehydrated Hawaiian, fruits having
commercial possibilities' were shown
at the 1921 Mauri fair by the Federal
agricu.tural experiment station of the
Territory. Products which have been
found by the station to have especial
merit, according to reports to the
United States Department of Agricul
ture, are dehydrated mango, from
which an excellent candid product
can be obtained; dehydrated papaya,
which mixed with lemon makes a
cheap but delicious jam; 'and dehy
drated guava, from which jelly can
be made.

Canning Meats at Home
After we leave spareribs and back
bone fresh from hog killing, there is
no meat (hog meat) better than that
canned and kept pure and sweet. In
fact, canning meat is perhaps the
best way to preserve it; so preserv
ed it retains its original taste and
texture. And the various sized con
tainers permit of its being put up in
convenient amounts.
Particularly in the south, because
of the mildness of the climate, the
canning of meats is becoming in
creasingly important. Home demon
stration agents are .being called upon
more and more to teach home can
ning of meats.
However, "it is not necessary for
the housewife to call upon her home
demonstration agent to teach her to
can meats; she can do it herself if
she will follow certain dinreetipns,”
spoke Miss Ellen LeNoir, district
home demonstration agent of Florida,
when interviewed on this question.
Miss LeNoir refers the person in
terested to document 80, No. A-92, of
the State Relation Service, United
States Department of Agriculture.
Exrtacts, instructive and helpful to
the woman who contemplates can
ning meat, from that pamphlet, read
as follows:
"Poisonous compounds often form
in the decomposition of protein
foods. This is especially likely to,
occur in case of meats and particu
larly sea foods, which spoil quickly-
It is of the utmost importance, there
fore, to use for canning only such
meats and fish as are known to be
absolutely fresh and clean.
When meat is canned before spoil
ing has set in, treated in an abso
utely clean manner, packed in air
tight containers, sealed properly and
sterilized in a steam pressure canner
for the time and temperature given
below, the resulting product being
one which experience has shown to
be good food. * * *
"Salt may be added for flavoring
or the meat may be smoked to flavor
it, but neither is necessary for pre
servation. The use of commercial
preservatives of any kind in canning
is not only unnecessary but may be
dangerous ,•
“These instructions require the use
of steam pressure canners, because
high temperature is necessary for
the complete sterilization of meats.
Such canners should be purchased
from a reliable company. They should
be able to develop at least 15 to 20

THE STORY OF A LOST PIG
The following story of a lost pig
written to the Southern Ruralist by
Kirby Wells of Jennings, Fla., we
know will be appreciated by the
members of the Boys Pig Clubs who
are readers of the Banner:
“Wheii I was five years old a little
pig got lost from its mother* and came
to the house almost starved. I took
it in the yard and fed it milk and
raised it. It was a Duroc gilt. I kept
her four years. She raised 30 pigs. I
sold them to papa at $2.00 apiece,
and sold the sow for $6.00, which
brought me $66.00. I have a good
sow, now, and five goats and SSO-00 in
cash- 1 am going to save for good
investment. I am ten years old and
do enjoy seeing after my hogs and
goats.
CRANSON TRtSTLE
I can not sleep tonight, because
Across the road a woman sings
An ancient song of love and peace.
A haunting melody that clings.
Why should her singing make me sad,
And drive me to the verge of tears?
Ah, there is foolishness in youth,
And bitter paying with the years.
—R. Fcrteseue Doria, in the
London Bookman.
I, too. am slumberless because
Across the court a woman sings
“I Never Knew,” “All By Myself,”
And other not unjazzy things.
Why should her singing madden me
And push me o’er the brink of tears?
Oh, louder and flatter doth she sing
Than anyone I’ve heard in years.
—F. P. A- in N. Y. Tribune.
No singer makes me want to fight,
But my blood jumps to fever heat
When mortorcycles in the night
Go tearing up and down the street-
I cannot sleep until they stop;
It does beat all how long they run.
Lord, if I were a traffic cop,
I T d be a mighty busy one.
—Doc Bixby, in Nebraska State
Journal.
I cannot sleep. Nobody sings,
In tones that drive my sleep away.
Yet I think of a mil.ion things
As 1 toss sleepless on the hay.
December’s drawing to an end,
'Twill soon have faded quite away
And merchants e’en now start to send
The bills that I have got to pay.
