TAPPING THE MAPLE TREK.—A very
pleasant as well as profitable feature of
tanning In Steuben county, N. Y., is
the annual harvesting ol the liquid
produce of the maple. To the world in
general the process of sugar-making is
comparatively unknown. All agree in
saying the present has been a good sea
son tor sugar-making, a cold winter
being necessary to insure a profitable
spring harvest. Then, when the sun
swings high in thdjheavens, the beds of
ice move out of the streams, and na
ture's pulse begins to beat, the sugar
maker armed with a half-inch bit, is
seen boring the trees, penetrating very
little under the bark. A metallic sap
spout, with hook attached to hang the
bright tin bucket on, is driven under
the hole, the trees tapped this way
wasting no sap, and cleanliness being
secured. The first 4, run" is the best,
like the head wines, of the European
vineyards; the sugar that first reaches
the market bringing a large price be
cause of its superior quality and flavor
—always providing that the unprinci
pled grocers does not reuielt it and add
two-thirds of inferior brown sugar,
thereby swelling bis profits by swind
ling his customers and searing his con
science. A well regulated sugar oamp
has leaders made of tin orciean wooden
troughs leading to some central point.
The buckets are emptied into the lead
ers. and the bush is drained into huge
receiving tinks or vats. The process
of boiling is an interesting one. The
boiling-pans shou'd be made of sup> r or
Russian iron or heavy copper, with in
side cross partitions, pans should
be about ten feet long and set in arches
of brick, the cross partition being set
three inches apart and open at alternate
ends. Thus the sweet water travels a
great distance, and over a moderate
ti.*e. When it drops from the pans it
is called B}*rup, and weighs eleven
pounds to the gallon. The syrup is
carefully strained through heavy wool
en cloths. When thoroughly cleansed
it is put in kettles, and this Is called
"syruping down." Two eggs and one
quart of milk are necessary In cleans
ing sixteen gallons of syrup, heating
slowly over a fire and skimming un
til it comes to a boiling point. To
this is added a small piece of butter,
when one has a superior quality of
sugar, such as rarely finds its way luto
Americau markets. The superintend
ant of Agriculture says that 40,000,000
pounds of maple sugar is made annually
in the United States.
CURIXG FRUIT BY COLD. —An exper
iment was made at a foundry in Placer
ville, lately in fruit-curing, by blasts of
cold air. In this experiment about a
peck of sliced apples were placed in a
sieve and subjected to a cold air blast
lor three hours in the cupola furnace
of the foundry, and the fruit is report
ed to have been completely and beauti
fully cured by the treatment, remain
ing soft without the slightest discolor
ation. We were about to say dried,
but cured is a better word, for there
there was Hone of that hard, hi still
dryness about it which frequently re
sults by sun-heat or flre-heai. The ex
periment was a most gratifying success,
and, in our judgment, is fraught with
results of great importance to the grow -
ers and manipulators of fruit. The
blast of cold air completely frees the
fruit from its excess of moisture, with
uo possibility of burning or shriveling
It. Compared with our sun-drying, it
effects a great saving expense, atten
tion and risk. Anybody who can com
mand or devise a strong blast of cold
air, can dry fruit in a superior—we
might say peifeet—manner, without
being dependent on the weather and
waiting on the slow process of sun
drying, and without the most expen
sive resort to fuel and risk of overheat
BAD-FLAVORED EGGS.—A bad flavor
in eggs is the result of one or two
causes—either the food on which the
fowls are fed, or the substance on
which the eggs are laid. This may be
easily tested by shutting up a laying
hen, and giving her garlic or malted
barley to eat. Another theory is—but
we cannot speak of it with the same
certainty—that an egg laid in any
strong-smelling substance will contract
it. This is explained by the fact that
the shell, when the egg is Mrst laid, is
comparatively soft and impressionable,
and only hard after contact with toe
atmosphere. Let your birds be whole
somely fed on plain food, and your
nests be made with clean straw, Hay
nests have a :eudency to make eggs
A BASE FOR THE COMPOST HEAP.—
There is no better base for compost
than leaf mould of the forest. All the
ilead animals of the farm, the refuse
brine and vegetables, the leached ashes,
the woolen rags, feathers of the slaugh
tered fowls, and hair of the slaugh
tered hogs should be scrupulously ad
ded to the compost heap. If, on enter
ing the village grocery, you smell old
brine or putrid fish, oiler the merchant
to take the nuisance off his hands. They
will make a valuable addition to the
compost heap. If there is a woolen or
paper mill or a tannery, these estab
lishments will furnish you uiuch valu
able refuse matter for composting.
DWARFED TREES. —The passion for
possessing miniature trees and shrubs
of various kinds may be mentioned as
one of the traits peculiar to Chinese
and Japanese gardeners, who take great
pains in producing them. A dwarf
ed umbrella pine, reared in a moderate
sized flower-pot, has taken ten or
twelve years to bring to a state of per
fection, Although scarcely sixteen
inches in height, it has the proportion
ate character of a full sized tree. Such
examples are very expensive, being
eagerly bought by rich Japanese ama
teurs for the decoration of their dwell

PROFESSOR PROCTOR complains that
the intelligent compositor made him
say "links, bonds and stripes for the
violent kind of spectres," instead ot
"lines, bands and stria in the violet
part of spectra." There may be some
difference In the meaning of the sent
ences, but the compositor's sounds the
more intelligible, and if lie were em
ployed to "set up" all tho Professor's
lectures, ninety-nine per cent, more

A SHORT article going the rounds of

to be "basted." A "chafed" husband
is uot desirable. Perhaps, after all, it
would be best to par-boil him, for often

HANGING rr COATS.—A heavy gnr

to avoid this, various devices have been
made some of wire and others of wood.
A piece of hard-wood, long enough to
reach from the out-shleof one sleeve to
that of the other, will answer the pur
pose; it should have a hole bored
through center, or a loop of strong cord
to hung It upon the nailor hook. U nder

Instruments jor Travelers. —1 11 H lec
ture to Li e French Geographical Socie
ty, M. D' Abbadie has discussed the
re'ative merits of tli® sextant and theo
dolite a3 applied to the determination
of ch 1 .tii|ii e and longitude f places
in unexplored countries. M. D'Abbadie
infists strongly on the dis: dvantages
of the sextant. The fact that an ang e
of more than 110 deg. canot be meas
ured with the sextant makes it
impossible to observe the meridian
altitude of the sun in the tropics, whilst
observation by night require artificial
light which a traveller in wild regions
finds it difficult to procure. Further,
in, constructing a map azimuths are re
quired, and these are so dicffiult to
obtain with a sextant that they are
rarely taken. M. D'Abbadie, there
fore, recommends the theodolite as the
most useful instrument for travelers;
and he describes a pattern which he
has found very serviceable. In this
instrument a prism is placed in front
of the object glass (which is more
powerful than in most theodolites of
its size), and thus the telescope is al
ways horizontal, a convenient form of
construction. The whole weighs 1%
pounds, without its case. The tripod
is formed of three rattan canes, wh'cti
are screwed on to a wooden triangle.
In determining azimuths with this in
