with the great armies In the field It was
not believed that much food could bo
trusted to tin cans. In the decade after
the war, however, experiments were mado
In every direction, and meats, fruits, vege

went In cans to the remotest parts of the
At the beginning of the Spanish-American
war, In lSS'S, there were 2,000 cunneries
In the United States, which put up an
nually $72,000,COO worth of canned goods.
Most of the canned goods were consumed
at homo, but the year before the war we
sent abroad canned fruits to the value of
$l,34f,281 and canned meats to the value of
Since 1892 we have been manufacturing
our own tin plate. The production of tin
and terne plates Increased from 42,119,000
pounds In 1892 to 894.411,000 pounds In 1901.
This home manufacture of tin plates gave
great Impetus to the manufacture of cans
the bulk of the American tin plate product
going to1 the: can manufacturers.
Ingenuity and activity In canmaklng ran
parallel with the Invention of new ma
chlnery and new processes for the prepa
ration of products for canning. Under
new processes nearly every food used by
families was put Into cans and became an
article of merchandise. This led to spe
cialized industries BUlted to the handling
of products grown In particular neighbor
hoods and to the exploiting of crops and
fruits suited to canning.
For example, about 3,000 fishing vessels
and 25.000 fishermen, and 2,000 oyster boats
with 20,000 men are employed on the At
lantic coast by canning establishments, and
the salmon canneries of the Pacific coast
constitute one of our great Industries.
The tin can has not only contributed
to the comfort and convenience of the
housekeeper at home and abroad, but It
has led to a revolution In the growing
of vegetables, great plantations being de
voted to the growing of peas, beans, etc.,
to be canned trreen.
The tin can has much to answer for,
but It has almost eliminated the seasons
from the consideration of the cook and
has mado It possible to serve the most
succulent of vegetables and the most de
licious of fruits In the Ice fields of the
north and the desert of Sahara. Chicago

Neither Ben Stanley, former organist and
choirmaster at the First Methodist church,
nor the trustees who have the matter In

of affairs regarding Mr, Stanley, the choir
and the ecclesiastical music which is prom

however, that something may be given out

pending that may result In Mr. Stanley

anything to the contrary.
