the chapter head was "Value of Rare

at a certain point, where I read with
the greatest surprise: "Nickles 1892

"How came these coins to be worth

"Our prices are standard," said the

the regular traveling public."
"How about tips?" I asked, with an
eye on the negro attendant.
"Tips what are they."
"Gratuities to the servants," I
said; with difficulty using correct
English, which was plumb out of date

"Such things are unknown," said
the clerk. "The tipping system went

I was curious, of course, but it did
not seem to be a time to ask more
questions. Feeling an aching void and
taking stock of my shabby clothes,
which were not a little stained with

"Everything In the house belongs

He turned me over to an uniformed
attendant ,and after thanking the
chauffeur for his kindness I followed
the man to the elevator. A car as

noiselessly, up, up, up. I watched the

I found a complete outfit of wellfitting
clothes awaiting me.
I looked with interest at my old
clothes. I had bought that suit from
Joe Malever in 1915, and no suit of
clothes had ever lasted me as long.
I took from the pockets my little
belongings. I bought my watch from
Burnett in 1913; it was as good as
ever, and when wound and set went
right to work.
There was a pocketbook and two
little kodak pictures very valuable a
quarter of a century ago; a billion
dollars wouldn't buy them now. A
pocketknife, a matchcase, an utterly
useless bunch of keys and some tooth toothpicks

lenght of the train was one mile, sev seven

flagman in leaving Anthony had to

he reached Ocala he was eighteen

be the longest train ever pulled over
any road in Florida.
The conductor saw his flagman be before

when the train was made up, and the

There are many ways of canning

vegetable. I've heard some rather
discouraging reports and have listen listened

by merchants that there is very lit little

stores, that they are claimed to be
devoid of real vegetable flavor, which
is but the result of canning for profit
without due consideration of the qual quality

Some housekeepers have a process
in which a little vinegar is used, in
most cases they keep very well, but
the vinegar must be soaked out (if
possible) and even then they cannot
have the same sweet flavor of the
bean picked fresh from the vine.
I find those who put them up in
tin only, using the one day process,
and do not exhaust them at all, ad ad-miting
miting ad-miting that frequently some are lost
and that the odor of beans when can canned

Now it is not my intention to criti criti-size

but it would seem that the arts of our
grandparents would surpass all these.
Nowadays we live in an age of pro progress

riculture agriculture has made a specialty of this
vork, and our government spent large
sums of money in studying just what
is the best method, and is sending
its agents into various counties of
a number of states to teach our rural
people the wdrk, there must surely
be some assurance as to the reliabil
ity of the instruction cs given. Almost
daily I am giving canning demonstra demonstrations
tions demonstrations in some part of the county, not
only with my canning club members
but with farmers where ever my time
will permit. Just now we are can canning
ning canning beans and expect to put up a
great many during the season.
Beans when put up under this dem demonstration
onstration demonstration work, bearing the "4-H"
brand are treated in the following
-First, the beans must be fresh and
tender, using great care in selection as
one would use in preparing them for
the table. If the beans are snapped
on the day before being canned they
should be kept in a cool place, spread
in the dew over night if it is possible.
When water in canner is at a boiling
heat, beans are put in sacks or trays
and blanched until a rich green color
and sufficiently wilted to bend with without
out without breaking, then they are plunged
in a vessel of cold water, which Jtends
to set the color, and produces a firm firmness
ness firmness that is most desirable. When
this is done and the caps have been
thoroughly sterilized, the beans are
carefully packed to within three-quarters
of an inch of the top of can and
then a brine containg 2oz. salt to
one gallon of .water is poured over
them, care being taken not to fill the
cans too full to avoid the seal being
poorly made. When the 'brine has
been poured in the caps are then
sealed on and the cans put in Xhe can canner
ner canner to exhaust for ten minutes, which
part of the process is most important
as the flavor of the bean depends to a
great extent on the exhaust. The cans
are then taken out and tipped, which
is the finishing touch of sealing.
When properly tested the cans are
vigorously boiled for one hour, and
when taken out should be cooled as
quickly as possible. The one hour
boiling should be repeated on the next
two mornings, each time cooling them
off when taken from the canner. A
good way to cool quickly .is to dash a
bucket of water on them. This. may
seem like a lot of trouble, but the
first day's work is really the only
burdensome part, as it is a very little
trouble to repeat the boiling and it is
a thoroughly recognized fact that the
intermittent cooking is a most impor important
