CURE8 HAMS QUICKLY.
Sharp Tube Penetrates Meat and Sup
plies Pickle from Inside.
Formerly it required from thirty to
sixty days to cure a ham. Nov,
through the genlua of a Minnesota
man, the work can be done In much
less time and more effectively. The'
old way to cure a ham was to throw
It into a vat of pickle and lot it soak
for a month or two until the plcklo
had thoroughly saturated the meat
The now pickling device consists of
a long pointed tube mado of segmental
sections and a blade closing around
them to form a barrel, which conducts
the pickling solution. A crossptece at
No Need of Pickling Vat.
the handle prevents the tube from
sinking too far into the meat This
tube is thrust Into the center of the
bam and the pickle flows to the In
aide, penetrating rapidly to all parts
and effecting a cure much quicker and
more effectively than in the old
method. The tube is removed before
the ham is consigned to the smoke
house. Saw Dust Roads In Florida.
They are making roads of sawdust
mixed with earth on a new plan hi
Leon County. Two ridges of earth
are thrown up with a road machine
at the required width from each
other and the space between Is filled
with a six-inch bed of sawdust This
Is followed with a smaller machine
which plows up and mixes the earth
with sawdust This makes a roadbed
on which the tires of the heaviest
loaded vehicles make no Impression.
The contractor. O. H, Averltt has
kept an accurate account of expenses
In connection with this section or
sawdust and earth road and says the
cost aggregates $297 a mile, showing
It to be about the cheapest road ma
terial in use. It may be suggested
that sawdust is not a durable material
but the True Democrat meets this ob
jection with the statement that one
or two roads were constructed in a
south Georgia county 20 years ago,
and are still in good condition, show
ing the durability. As is well known,

For the Little Pigs.
Teach them to eat as soon as yon
can by placing before them a mixture;
of midllngs and milk in a shallow
trough. Then commence shelling corn
for them. Do not feed them all thoy,
will eat but simply keep them grow
lng nicely. As soon as the clover will
do, turn them on and still continue to
feed corn twice a day.
Let the Horses Run.
It is a mistake to keep either young
or old horses stabled several days at
a time. They need dally out-door ex
ercise for development of muscle and
bones. If the pasture is too short for
them to run in, allow them daily ex
ercise In an open lot Work horses
often become stiff by standing too
long in the stall.
If your bees are not in the shade, I
would put false covers on the hives
during the hot season. A few boards
on top, with an inch or so of space be
tween them and the lids, and a few
against the sides, will do much to
make the bees comfortable.
Watch the Lambs.
It will pay to keep close watch on
the sheep at lambing time. The
lamb Is a helpless little animal when
It is first born, and a little assistance
at this time may mean the difference
between its living and not living.
Watering often is far better than
waiting till a horse is almost choked
and then letting blm have all he can
tlrink. Many horses are spoiled by
the latter method, while no one ever
hurt a horse by frequent watering.
One should wear light clothing in
the apiary. Dark clothing has a
tendency to irritate the bees and
cause them to sting you.
Economy in the bee business is
necessary. Every item saved helps to
Increase the profits.
Charcoal is good for the pigs and
the chickens. Be sure that there la a
supply always accessible for them.
It is poor economy to pasture the
eras too close. Don't try to keep
more, stock than you can successfully

Hilda Bronson sat listlessly at her
work table at 10 o'clock In the fore
noon of a warm June day. The waste
basket was full of discarded sheets of
typewritten paper. " 'He will not can
ter, walk or trot my Pegasus,'"
sighed Hilda wearily, "I may as well
give up this morning."
Tom had been at home from his
Mediterranean trip three days, and
he had called only once. On the first
day he had mounted the stairs to her
study In the old familiar way, saying
with a cordial shake of her two hands,
"I had to come to see my old sister
Tom Whitney had paid court to
Hilda for eight years, and the lady had
rewarded his faithful attendance with
the flippant remark, "What's the use
in being married? It's much pleas
antcr as it Is." It was plain she
looked upon him as a brother. He es
corted her everywhere, waited upon
her dutifully and was of invaluable
assltance in managing the business
end of her literary affairs. His recent
ocean trip was the first time ho had
been, away from her for more than a
day at a time since their comrade
ship began. Jacob served as faith
fully for Rachel, but with that excep
tion, Tom swore history furnished no
parallel of his devotion. And Hilda
remained obdurate. Sho was happy
as she was. Her writing was a kind
of intoxication to her and with a type
writer under her fingers and Tom
ever hovering near to fetch and carry,
harass editors and amuse her leisure
hours, life seemed full enough.
Three months ago, after another
severe squelching by Hilda, Tom had
quietly Joined the Beaumonts, a con
genial and vivacious crowd, on their
trip to Italy. Kitty Beaumont was a
flirt as well as a beauty. Hilda had
received letters from Tom while he
was gone, conscientious, characteris
tic letters, full of information and
brotherly advice. She had also had
letters from others in the party, sing
ing In various keys and with a di
versity of interpretations the song of
Tom and Kitty. Hilda liked Kitty,
but the reports kindled a feeling of
resentment toward the girl. Kitty
was an irrepressible flirt, and it was
a shame for her to play with honest
old Tom and break his heart, Hilda
During the three months of loneli
ness Hilda had come face to face with
her own heart and had discovered
that Tom pretty well filled it Well,
now he had come back, but the old
basis of friendship seemed to have
been disturbed. "After all, man Is
but a creature of habit," she was
thinking rather bitterly. "What he is
pleased to call love and devotion is
no more than habit He gota to turn
ing into the same door yard day after
day, like the milkman's horse, till a
now master changes the route "
Her caustic soliloquy was inter
rupted by the parting of the portieres.
"How's the story?" he asked, to re
lieve her evident confusion.
"Awful," answered Hilda. "Here
I've gathered together what I believed
to be an intelligent set of characters
and given them a fascinating setting,
and they just sit around like dummies!
Not one thing will they do for them
selves. It takes all my enorgy to
budge them or make them say a
single wise or bright thing. Look at
that waste basket! I'm disgusted
with the ninnies."
"Throw them over and let's go
and get a breath of ocean air. You
look positively fagged."
Hilda's heart was light as she hast
ily brought order to her desk. Tom
waited in negligent ease in the win
"I want you to go just this once,
for the pake of old times. Then I
won't bother you any more. I must
have been a fearful bore in the last
eight years. I've begun to see things
a little clearer since my trip. Travel
broadens one, they say," he laughed.
"And I guess I'll have to adjust my
self to a new track. I'd been running
on a narrow gauge line for so long
I didn't realize It I guess it's a good
thing for all concerned that little
Tommle has seen a bit of the world."
Hilda sorted pages and gathered
fugitive pencils. The light had died
out of her face and the color slowly
"I'm studying Italian," he con
tinued, idly opening a book which ho
had drawn from bis pocket "Kitty
is an amusing teacher. . She can talk
the lingo like a native. She says with
four evenings a week I ought to speak
it all right by .fall. Here is th con
versational' method, so it won't de
prive us of outdoors on warm even
ings." Hilda strove to control the treav
bllng of her chin. She sank back hrto
a cnalr.W'Really, Tom, I don't feel
able to gp? I'm so dead tired. I've
been up nearly all night for weeks"
She looked so thoroughly 111 Tom
was alarmed. In a flash he was at
"Hilda darling "
The tender tones were as the last
straw to the camel's back, and the
girl covered her eyes with her hands.
Tom's arms were about her,
"(Jo away How dare you Tpm t"
But Tom dared everything.
About midnight that night he wrote
a note to a certain unmarried aunt:
"Dear Wise Woman': It worked all
right! I'm out of my bead with hap
piness. You did well to remind me
I'd never given her a chance to mis

FOR LIFTING HOT PANS.
Simple Attaohmcnt Which Prevents
Accidental Burning of the' Hand.
There Is no reason why the house
wife should be continually burning
her fingers lifting hot pans from the
fire when she can readily provide her
self with the handy attachment shown
in the accompanying illustration, and
avoid such accidents. It seems im
possible to persuade women to use de
vices similar to this; they would rath
er use a cloth or their apron when
removing utensils from the fire. This
pan holder, nevertheless, should ap
peal to all women who must work over
the fire, being simple In construction
and operation. Attached to the han
dle is a flat circular extension, which
Is slipped under the pan to be re
moved. Pivoted to handle Is a lever,
one end carrying a hook which drops
over the edge of the pan. The other
end rests against the handle. The
lever prevents the pan from slipping,
a small ring on-the handle being slip
ped over the end, where It remains un
til the pan is safely removed and tbe
A Halrdressing Secret.
The woman with auburn hair once
dark brown and the woman with yel
low locks once drab met and compli
mented each other on the latest color
of their coiffure. To the question,
"Who did it?" each gave the name of
the came hairdresser, but when they
compared notes as to price It develop
ed that the former brown haired beau
ty had had to pay $15 more for the
transformation than the yellow ha' tod
woman. Animated by an indignation
that would not let bor rest the highly
taxed beauty seeker hurried to he
hairdresser and demanded an explana
tion. The artist in hair was in no
wise flustered. ,
"Tours is not an unsual case," he
said affably. "We always charge from
$10 to $25 more for dyeing dark hair
light because if anything happens to.
It and It turns green or purple or any
tmdeslred shade a jury will always
award a dark haired woman higher
damages than a blonde. I don't know
why all those sets of twelve wise men
reason that way but court records
show that they do and hairdressers
have to fasten one eye on possible
Jury verdicts before applying the dye."
