New Process for Drying Fruits
And Vegetables
Lbcoln, May 30. 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
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.

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
"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."

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
"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. The
sight of a woman testifying in court
that her ex-husband is dead and
then of a man, saying he was the ex.
husband appearing on the stand to
controvert this testimony, was fur
nished in district court here today
in the divorce suit brought by Mrs.
R T Collins against R. T. Collins,
proprietor of a local hotel, asking
J 16.000 alimony.
Mrs, Collins testified her first hus
band, Samuel E.J Baker, died at
Snyder, Tex., and she paid his fu
neral expenses. She said she saw
him die, in June, 1913.
Then the defense called Samuel
E. Baker, formerly of Greeley and
now of Cleveland, On to deny that
he died in 1913. Baker complained
to the judge about a loss of pay
from his regular employment just
to prove he was alive. Mrs. Collins
swore the Cleveland Baker is not
the Baker she knew as husband.

Enlarging Trade Are
by means of the
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.

Lee Huff, Mgr.
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
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
