At a "strategy council" of instructors who will teach canning in train'iig schools to be held in many parts of the-state this sum mer, Prof. C. VV. Pugstey, director of the extension service of the collesre of agriculture, explained in detail the new process ot drying iruits and veg etables recently worked out by the United States Department of Agri culture. This means ot preserving perisha ble food for winter use, which is de scribed as surprisingly simple and surprisingly effective, is expected to take an important place in the aver age housewife's operations this sum mer. It is thought that it may re place, to some extent at least, the usual method of canning. At the conference, he was able to show "dryer" in actual operation. Though the outfit had been in op eration but three hours when the con ference began, beets, rhubarb, spin ach, asparagus and other garden products had given up a large part ot tpeir moisture. The equipment used in this trial consisted of .six trays (three feet long, twelve to eighteen inches wide, and two .to three inches deep), and an ordinary electric fan. The trays are fitted with wire screen bottoms and one wire screened end. The other end is open.' The trays are placed in stacks (after fruits or vegetables . have been sliced and strewn in the bottom of the trays) and an electric fan placed at the end of the pile of trays so that a stream of air plays over the fruit. Dr. Gore, the discoverer ot tiie process, declares that he has not found a vegetable or fruit that would not give up at least 90 tier cent of its moisture within twenty-four hours when subjected to this process.

Bee Want-Ads Produce Results, Found by Experts use result in loss of flavor or in the deterioration of the product, accord ing to Dr. Gore," said Prof. Pugsley. "A long process of drying without heat permits chemical changes which lower the .nutritive value of the product and' cause an injury to the flavor. Application of heat 16 hasten drying also causes chemical changes of a similar character and a loss of flavor. The process discovered by Dr. Gore is said to be a happy medium in that it retains flavor and causes no deterioration of the product. Prac tically all fruits or vegetables may be successfully dried by ' this method. Even the color may be preserved by dipping in a salt solution. " "Such vegetables, when dried and re-hydrated properly, cannot be dis tinguished from the fresh product, ac cording to Dr. Gore. However, they must be 6oakeJ for at least two hours to allow them to take up as much moisture as was removed. Then they may be cooked the -same raa -fresh vegetables. "The cost of drying is surprisingly inexpensive, according to statements of Dr. Gore. The trays are relatively inexpensive, and electric current is said to cost about 5 cents per twenty four hours for the operation of an ordinary electric fan. However, we are verifying alt calculations as to the cost. Further tests on the drying process will also be made." Experts Now Here. Miss A. E.

RIDGELL PROBES BIG MILL FIREBYSTERY State Fire Commissioner Joins Warden Morris in Search for Evidence of Fire bug's Work. State Fire Commissioner W. S. Ridgell arrived in Omaha Tuesday to conduct an investigation of the cause of the $200,000 Maney Milling company fire which occurred Sunday. After pulling in a strenuous uay tuc commissioner summoned Deputy H. Requarette from Lincoln to continue the work and returned to the capital. Before leaving Commissioner Ridgell' said : The duties of the State Fire coin- mission are to thoroughly investigate all fires of which the origin is at all mvsterious and where there is any likelihood of the blaze being the work of incendiaries. Business called me out of the city, but my deputy, H. F. Requarette, will carry in the investi gation. "In fires of this nature and in a city the size of Omaha, especially, a thor ough investigation cannot be carried out in one or two days. We will let you know if anything develops." Asked if he had discovered evidence of firebugs' work Mr. Ridgell said: "Nothing to say until I am in a po sition to give you facts. I have not told any newspaper or individual what my opinions are regarding this fire." Morris Will Prosecute. Fire Warden Morris said: "We are doing all in our power to learn the cause of this fire. Recent fires in mills and elevators in South Dakota and Iowa, which we learn were unquestionably of incendiary origin, will cause us to leave no stone unturned, there is a possibility that the Maney fire was of that origin, but I have no evidence that such was the case. "Stories told by the men who were on the scene when the fire started agree and unless, Mr. Ridgell is able to obtain evidence that I was unable to get, I do not believe we will ever know the real cause. We have re cently had two or three fires of mvs terious origin and we will give $100 reward to any person who can furnish a clue to the miscreant, if the elevator was intentionally tired. "In case I can learn anything fur ther I- will inform the public imme diately. I believe it is the patriotic duty of every person to be on the out look for anything that may endanger our tooa supply. . Timothy C. Manning, superintend ent of the Nye-Schneider-Fowler Oram company s elevator in Umaha, says a fire such as destroyed the Maney elevator might smoulder for a long time unnoticed in an airtight space in the dust that accumulates, being started from a spark either from electrical wires or from a defective bearing. When air conditions changed it might suddenly burst into flames. Takes Witness Stand to Testify He Is Not Dead Greeley, Colo., May 30.

Demands of Union Men Hinder Naval Building ' Washington, May 30. Union labor demand for the payment of double time for every hour of work beyond the usual eight-hour day is furnish ing a troublesome problem for tli? Navy department in its efforts ta speed up the naval construction. When the union officials opposed to lengthened days with time and a half for the extra hours, the department officials planned to keep work in pro gress at high speed by putting on two or even three shifts of men in the emergency branches. They were informed, however, that every addi tional and independent shift after the first force must be paid double time; The officials now are seeking some solution for the problem that will not enormously increase the government's expense in turning out the warships for which there is imperative and im mediate need. Enlarging Trade Are by means of the 3i-ton GMC Truck is fast becoming the accept ed method of innumerable small city tradesmen for in creasing weekly sales. The greatest advantage in the use of the -ton GMC Truck by merchants in the smaller cities is not the sav ing of cost in hauling 100 pounds or a ton of merchan dise, but in the ability to accomplish mere work in a given time in the added territory that can be covered. Those who have adopted the -ton GMC have found they could deliver goods into the country and neigh boring towns, thereby securing trade that was impos sible to get under the old delivery system This modern method of extending the selling field holds forth untold possibilities for the merchant who is quick to see its opportunities and provide himself with a truck which has demonstrated its fitness for this service as has the 8-ton GMC.

HENRY THOROUGH PROBE ASKEDJY KOGEL Superintendent of Police Says He Will Co-Operate in Inves tigation of the Charges Against Officers, Superintendent Kugel of the police department reiterates his statement that he is willing to have his branch of the city government investigated o the fullest extent, and if the com missioners decide to extend the charges against Captain Maloney and Detective Sutton, he will co-operate. "I believe there is need of co-ordination of the branches of the police department," said one of the commis sioners. "This system of one group of men reporting to one head and .mother group responsible to another head does not conduce to the best dis cipline." Kugel's plan is to abolish the office of chief of the detective department. He cannot do it alone, because the city council created the office and ap pointed Stephen Maloney and any change must go through the same channel. Investigate Whole Department. . "If Kugel and Chief Dunn believe it best to place the detective depart- Iment directly under the chief, I will support them in such, a plan, said Mayor Dahlman. Chief Dunn said he could handle the whole department if called upon to do so.' Under the system of the police de partment Captain Maloney maintains' his orhce at the police station and his detectives report there. He is not seen in the city hall more than a few times a year. The chief has his office in the city halL Whether the charges filed by the chief against Maloney and Sutton and set by the council for hearing June 12, or later, will be extended to an investigation of the whole police department, is as yet undecided. Some of the commissioners are of the opinion that there has been so much tir that an investigation would clear the atmosphere and restore affairs to normal.
