The first great requisite is to have all the
vessels perfectly clean. Strict cleanliness
ehonld be observed throughout the whole pro
cess. Tin vessels are better than wood for
this reason. If properly washed, they can
never impart sourness to thesnp. Made large
enough to hold uiue quarts each, they would
cost about SSS per hundred, and six quart
pails cost S3O per hundred. They may be
n&de square or round, but the latter are bet
ter to clean aud keep in shape. They should
be largest at the top, so as to pack awav in
nests when uo'l in use. The top should be
strongly wired, like a tin pan, and a bole made

The best s|*outs are made of thick tinned
iron. Wheu l.ho vessel are hung as above de
scribed on nai.s, the spouts need not be more
than three inches long. They should be wid
est where they enter the tree. After the sheet
tin is cut up to the proper size, the concave
shape is .given to them by placing them be
tween a convex and concave pieee of wood and
giving them a brisk blow with a mallet. Made
sharp at the wide end, they are easily driven
into the tree.
Never allow the sap to stand in the pails
tWenly-four hours—the fresher it is wher. boil
ed the purer will be the sugar. While boiling
large quantit.es should not be poured in at a
time, as that will stop it, and make irregHlar
work ; but a reservoir should be placed above
the boiler, from which the sap may be drawn
in a stream through a faucet, just fast enough
to supply the evaporation. A little practice
will enable the operator to judge how large
this stream should be. Two boilers are better
than one if the fire is made to pass from one
to the other—the first or hottest being chief
ly for boiling down to syrop, the second or
coldest for beating the sap arid doing the first
evaporating. The faucet of fresh sap runs in
to the first, and a pipe or syphon, with faucet
conveycs it lo the second.

To make gcod syrup, the sap must be re
