The Laws of Canning.
j The old question, "Do you have
r any luck in keeping your canned
" fruits?" is dying out gradually, as
women come to understand and mas
ter laws 6f canning. The housewife
who would understand the whys and
wherefores of the canning process
must go back to the science of bac
teriology for enlightenment. We
know now that the s porting of food,
: the process of decay, is caused by the
presence and action ot microscopic
plants called bacteria, yeasts and
olds, inese tiny invisible torms ot
are present everywhere. We
kf cannot eliminate them; but we can
i kill them so that they cannot continue
I their work of destruction. The pro-
a- $ cess of killing bacterial life is steril
Jimjfr izing. It may be accomplished by
i ,m boiling the material to be s'crilized

the fruit acid acta as a preservative.
Also, boil all jars and lids for fifteen
minutes, which time is sufficient to
sterilize the smooth surfaces of jars.
Since rubber rings cannot stand long
continued boiling they must merely
be plunged into boiling water imme
diately before use. Spoons, forks,
etc., used for putting the fruit into
the jars should also be dipped in boil
Sterilization alone, however, will
not insure the keeping of canned
foods. If air can enter the filled jars
it brings with it fresh bacteria, yeasts
and molds, which will cause spoiling.
Hence the second law of canning:
Seal all jars tightly. Fill the jars to
overflowing and seal immediately. In
the case of screw top jars the lids
must be screwed tighter after the
glass of the jars has cooled and con
tracted. There are many methods of carry
ing out these two laws of canning.
Vegetable canning can best be done
by the "cold ' pack" method, which
will be discussed 'later, ine oia

A Culinary Jewel
A cook in a Baltimore family is in
,...m n! oirtK anti plaudits because
she has been faithful to stove and
sink in one situation for twenty-five
years. So long a period of domestic
service is almost incredible in these
days when, as a tnicago wu. ic
marked, the cook may leave between
the bacon and eggs. Nowadays when
an employment agency brings the lady
of the house and the maid-of-all-work
together it is the employer who
is catechized by the employe. The
mistress fervently hopes that she wjll
suit the grande dame below stairs
and lives in fear of giving the under
ling displeasure. Is the solution of
the servant question to be the pass
ing of the servant? A strike in the
kitchen means nothing less than the
fracture of the staff of life. The do
mestic economy with the domestic out
of it is paralyzed. The old saying.
1 "Too many cooks spoil the broth,"
1 has ceased to mean anything, because.
too many cooks would be an incred
ible superfluity. How much is the
mistress to concede? Is the cook to
have breakfast served to her in bed?
Is she to be allowed to give nightly
parties in the kitchen when she does
not carry away meat and vegetables
and elect to spend the evening else
where? Any disciplinary measure
may produce a flare-up and a resig-
The tired business man can easily
frown over his newspaper at his wife
and say "I wouldn't let her talk to
me that way. Why don't you dis
charge her?" That just shows how
little the good man knows of the
problem of getting anybody at all to
do the work and keeping the peace
even imperfectly. The disciplinarian
of the business office has his whip
hand in the fact that there is -a
waiting list for business chances. But
?ood cooks command their own price
and can pick and choose their elective
affinities in the way of diffident
young mistresses newly from the
:ooking school. If you think it is
asy to keep orfc cook for twenty
five years go home and try it over
on your own linoleum. You will find
:t all but impossible to please the
same servitor as long as that. You

A "ood working plan is to try out
several recipes of one kind until a
thoroughly satisfactory one is found.
Then next to this tested type recipe
keep a card labelled "variations."
Thus, if one finds a particularly de

its unusual flavor to the addition of
cinnamon, then add that suggestion
to the "Variations for Krostings"
