MOSSY BEND ITEM (p. 4)
Talk about cane from the Mossy Bend country, but you should see that raised by John McRea a mile from town. A comparison of that and Dr. McKinnon’s sample does not show so very much difference.

ICE PLANT ITEM (p. 5)
The pipe for the artesian well at the ice plant arrived last week.

CHUFAS (p. 5)
W. D. Jones has gathered 225 bushels of chufas from his five acres. He sells these to the seed houses and if you do not think there is any money in them try to buy some for seed. He cleaned them last week at the rate of over a peck in five minutes, and if you don’t believe that is working some, try it.

ORANGES AND SATSUMAS (p. 5)
That sweet oranges as well as the Satsumas will thrive here has been demonstrated by Phil Fellows who left us some samples last week from a treeon his place from which he gathered several hundred this year. The tree was a seedling which came up from the root of a Satsuma which froze down some hears ago when it got so awful cold.

HOW TO KEEP BUTTER COOL. (p. 6)
A convenient and easy way to keep butter cool is by applying the principle of cooling by evaporation, as used in the wet bulb of the wet and dry bulb hygrometer. The butter is placed in a closed receptacle (butter dish with lid), and after this has been placed in a soup plate containing water a wet cloth is put over the dish with its ends in the water. Evaporation goes on at the surface of the cloth, and more water is supplied to the cloth from the place below. This keeps the cloth and dish inside at a few degrees below the atmospheric temperature, and by this means butter can be kept firm in the hottest days.

HOW TO CURE HAMS (p. 6)
My method of curing hams is as follows: Trim them neatly and make a brine strong enough to float afresh egg. Put themin this and let them remain four or five days to draw out all the blood. Then take them out and boil and skim the brine and when cold return them to the brine, adding enough fresh brine to cover them, and then add for each 100 pounds of ham a pint of black mollasses and an ounce of salt petre, and let the hams remain in the brine for two or three weeks. Then take them out and hang and smoke well with hickory wood or corn cobs and smother the fire with green cedar brush. When well smoked, take them down and paint them all over with a thick mixture of black molasses and black pepper. Wrap in stout brown paper and put each in a cotton sack and dip it in lime wash and hang in a dark smoke house. The hams will improve till a year old.
I treat shoulders in the same way, and sides, except that the sides remain in brine half the time that the hams do. Jowls treated in this way are fine for boinling with turnip greens in the spring. –W. F. Massey, in the Progressive Farmer
