Origin of Wheat in America.
fc'ome lime ngo we published the coin
nionly recleved statements In regard to
the Introduction of wheat Into'Amerlca
from Europe ; but If the fact ittiterl he
low be true, then wheat must have been
grown In America long before the ad
vent of the Spanish, EngllHh, or Dutch
to this country, or even of the Norse
men. It ((.generally supposed that Cor
teas planted in Mexico, in 151)0, the first
wheat ever grown on American boII.
From Mexico, wheat was Introduced In
to Peru. The English and Dutch
brought it to the present limits of the
United Btates at the time of their first
settlements here-1007, 1014, and 1020.
Now however, the story is brought for
ward that wheat was known to the
Mound Builders, who inhabited this
country, Heaven only knows how many
centuries ago, but certainly no later
than the year 1000 A. D. As our readers
are aware, these aborigines have left
traces of their occupation all over our
country, especially In the Mississippi
Valley. In a mound opened In Utah
were found buried the remains of a man
nearly six and a half feet In length, the
the skeleton of a woman nearly as long,
and moreover several handsful of wheat
preserved in a stone box. If this dis
covery was really made, and we are as
sured that it was, the supposition that
wheat was unkuown In America before
the coming of the Europeans la errone
ous. It has commonly been supposed
that the only cereal known to the
Mound Builders was our maize or In
dian corn. Set en tific American.
Canning Sausage Meat.
A correspondent of the Practical
Farmer says : We have been putting
to test our original experiment of can
ning sausage meat, and it may be the
experiment will prove a failure; but
from present appearance we are confl.
dent the result will prove most . favora
ble; and our sausage will be preserved
In better shape than ever before. We
have put up some tweuty-four quarts,
using both tin and glass cans, and the
meat seems to be keeping very nicely,
so far. We intend to keep a few cans
till next harvest time, and think by that
time the test will be sudlcierit. Our
mode of canning was as follows : After
the meat was ground fine, it was put in
a granite ware kettle, some twenty-live
pounds at a time, seasoned to suit the
taste, with pulverized sage, ground black
-pepper, and salt; mix thoroughly as it
is heating, bringing the meat to a scald
ing heat, then fill the cans, packing the
meat snugly and when full, put a couple
of spoonfuls of heated lard over the top.
Seal directly and set the cans in a cool
place. Try the recipe, sister, and report
Dust For Lice.
A correspondent of Farmer's Advo
cate says : "Some ten or twelve years
ngo, an agricultural writer observed Ills
bull to be free from lice, but not so the
rest of his cattle ; and thinking over the
matter he came to the conclusion that
the habit of pawing dirt over himself
must have the eflect of keeping the lice
off the bull and he tried dry earth on
the rest of the cattle with the best effect."
Ever since reading the above I have used
nothing but dry earth, and have repeat
edly put it on cattle having lice, and
have fouud it efficacious, both as' a pre
ventive and as a cure. If in winter I
llnd it needed and cannot get it other
wise I go into my cellar and obtains
few quarts, (no danger of using too
much) and dry it on the stove ; I then
sprinkle it over the back from head to
tail, and the earth working in and
through the hair, soon destroys all lice.
I believe the earth to be just as effica
cious, less dangerous and less expensive
than tobacco or,any acids recommended.
Never-Falling Sponge Cake.
One pound of sugar, twelve, eggs,
iiiue ounces of flour, the rind and juice
of one lemon. Beat the yolks and sugar
well together, after first beating the
yolks light., The lemon juice may be
added to make them easier to beat.
Have the whites beaten till they stand
alone, and lastly cream In the flour. At
the same time to be sure to cease iteat
iog, for to continue after the flour U put
in is a certain way to spoil the cake.
Sponge cake bakes more quickly than
any other vailety.
