In the "Country tieutlonien'' of

directions for pickling pork. The fol
lowing is our method, and we doubt
if any otber country gentlemen dine
on better pickled pork than those at

For each 100 pounds of pork, weigh
out 8 pounds o(,talt. Alter the meat
is eold, rub each piece well with pun
of tbe salt. Repeat tho nperutioa the
next day. Tbe tbird day tsko tbe
remainder ot tbe salt, which should

sugar, 4 ouooes tultpoter, 1 pint ol
