What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Mitch of the heavy litbor can be avoided by means lf a hoist, such vs a block and tackle, for lifting the hler In and out of the welding vat or when hanging the hog tor removing entrails. If the water is heated In the house, it should be boiling when removed from the stove and carried to the bar- rel. At the time the hog is scalded the water should be at a temperature if 185 to 195 degrees F. If no thermom- eter is itt hand, stick the finger into :he water three times in rapid succes- non, andif it burns severely the third time the water is about right. If the. water is too hot the hair is likely to ret, causing even more trouble than if too cold. A teaspoonful of lye or a small shovelful of wood ashes added to every 30 gallons of water will aid in removing the scurf. After either one of these alkalis is added the water should be stirred thoroughly. ,Insert the hog hook in the lower jaw, place the hog on the table and slide It into the barrel. The rear end of the hog is scalded first for the rea- son that if the water Is too hot nnd the hair sets it can be removed easier from the rear time front the fore part of the hog. The hog should be kept moving in' the water; to he sure that no Part will rest. against the side of the barrel.

While the carcass is still warm, re- move.the leaf lard or kidney fat. This facilitates cooling the carcass and less- ens the danger of the hams and loins souring. The leaf lard should be spread out on a table to cool, with the thin membrane side turned down. The gut fat sitould not be mixed with the leaf lard in rendering. Cooling the Carcass. The carcass should be cooled after slaughtering, but not allowed to freeze. Temperature cannot be controlled on the fartn, but it Is possible to kill when ate weather Is favorable. Select a day in winter when there Is chance for cooling the carcass before the surface freezes. The desirable temperature for cooling meat 18 34 to 40 degrees Fahrenheit. In the sumtner time it Is necessary to have refrigeration. In the fall it Is best to kill In the evening, allowing the carcass to cool overnight. hang the carctlas In a dark cellar or a cool room in the barn before the files can get at it. Fresttly killed meat ab- sorbs odors very readily; do not hang the carcass in a freshly painted room or in a room with tar, kerosene or gas. oline.
