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.

You've got Mitre sense than any of us, Mandy.\ \And I'll have the chapel bell rung,\ die said. \Hub! what's that for?\ \lite wind will carry the sound out . across the cove. The boy, Chet, will recognize the sound of the hell and it will give him an idea of where home Is.\ \You do beat all!\ exclaimed Joseph atagg, starting to leave the house. \Find a cap of ('ho't', Mrs. Corm- 'ey,' she comminuted. \Don't you see Mr. Stagg has no hat? He'll catch his teeth of cold.\ \Why I never thought !\ He turned to speak direetly to Miss Amanda, but - , he had gone back Into the room and was putting on her outer wraps. Mrs. Gormley, retheyed and weeping, torought the cap. Mr. Stagg plunged down the steps and kept on down the hill to the water front. There Was an eating -place here where the waterside chnrocters congre- ;feted, and Mr. Stagg put his head In at the door. \Some of you fellers conic out with are on the ice and look, for a little girl —and a boy and a dog,\ said Mr. Stagg. 'Like enough, they're. lost in Lids storm. And the Ice Is going out.\ They all rushed out of the eating. house and down to the nearest dock. Even the cook went, for he chanced to know Carolyn May. \And let me tell you, she's one rare little kid,\ he declared, out of Mr. Stagg's hearing. \How she come to be related to that hard -aft -nails Joe Stagg Is a puzzler.\ - ks , The hardware dealer might deserve this title in ordinary times, but this was one occasion when he plainly dis- played emotion. Hannah's Carlyn, the little child he had learned to love, was somewhere on the Ice in the driving storm. Ile would have rushed blindly out on the rotten ice, barehanded nnd alone, had the others not Milted him. Joseph Singe stood 1/11 the dock and :hooted fit tin , t•Ip of his voice: \Prince! Prince! Prince!\ The winil innet have carried his voice a long way out across the cove, I ut there was no reply. Then, suddenly, the clear sliver tone of a belt rang out. Its pitch carried through the St01111 startlingly clear. There was a movement out In the cove. One field of ice crnshed against another. Mr. Stagg stilled a moan end was one of the first to climb dealt to the level of the ice. \Have a care, Joe.\ somebody warned him. \This snow on the Ice will mask the holes and fissures some- thing scandalous.\ • But Joe Stagg was feckless of his awn safety. Ile started out into the 010W, shouting again: \Prince! Prince! Here, boy! Here, boy!\ There wag no answering bark. The clunging of the chapel bell was Ft Comforting sound. .1' ii Stagg did not know Una. unable to Ii iii the sex- ton, Amanda Parlow hail ftireed the church door and was tugging at the rough rope herself.

It was not work to which Carol ti alny'le \pretty lady\ was used. Iler shoulders seem arheo and the palms of her hands were raw and bleeding. Hut she continued to loll the bell without a moment's sur- cease—on and on, till her brain swam rind her breath came chokingly from her lungs. \Joe! Joe!' she muttered each time Eliot she bore down on the bell rope, dr , nub the iron tongue shouted the word for her, far across the snow -blotted cave. Carolyn May was not the first of the trio caught out nn the moving ice ttstie frightened. Perhaps because she had such unbounded faith in the good in- tentions of everbody toward her, the child could not imagine anything reel- ly hurting her. \Oh Isn't this fun!\ she crowed, bending her head before the beating of the storm. \Do hang on, Princey.a But, Prince could not hang on so well, now that they faced the wind. Ile Mitered off the steel twice, teed that de- layed them. Under his skates, Cbet ' could feel the Ice heave, while the resonant cracke followed each other like a file -tire of musketry. \Goodness Int.!\ gasped Carolyn May. \the ice ReelitS to be going all to pieces, Chet. 1 hope it won't till we . get back to the shore.\ hophe that, too,\ returned the boy. He had quickly realized that they were In peril, but lie would not let Carolyn May see that he was fright- ' ened—no, Indeed! The boy unstrapped the skates swift- ly.

Then he seized the rope once more and started toward the sound of the chapel bell. Prince began to bark.

Meat should never be frozen either prior to or during the period of curing. The proper Ulna to begin curing is when the meat lit cooled and still fresh. Twenty-four to 30 hours after killing Is the opportune time. Vessels for Curing. A clean hardwood molasses or sirup barrel Is a suitable vessel in which to cure pork. The barrel should be clean and tight so as to prevent leakage. A large stone or ntetni Jar is the best container In which to cure meat, but the initial cost is high. Stone or metal containers are very easily kept clean. If a barrel Is used repeatedly for cur- ing pork It Is necessary to scald it out thoroughly before fresh pork is packed into it. Curing Agents. Salt, saltpeter, sugar, aud molasses are the principal preservatives used in euriug pork. Borax, boric acid, for. acid, and other chem- icals are sometimes used, but their use Is prohibited in connection with Meats anti products to which. the federal in- spection liiw is applicable. Salt Allen applied alone to meat makes it very tiara and dry, because its action draws out the meat Juices and hardens the muscle fibers. Salt- peter is used to preserve the natural color of the meat. It is more astrin- gent than salt and should be used sparingly. Sugar and molasses act differently than salt. They soften the muscle fibers and improve the flavor of the meat, hence the coinbinatiOn of salt and sugar make a god cure: Brine Curing and Dry Curing.. Much diversity of opinion exists as to the merits of the two ways of cur- ing—brining and dry curing. It is less trouble to pack meat in a barrel and pour on brine than to rub meat three or four times with salt. The brine keeps -away insects and ver- min. If directions are followed close- ly and pure water Is used in making the brine, it will not spoil and should keep for a reasonable length of time. If the brine becomes \ropy it should be poured off and boiled or a new brine made. A cool cellar is the most desirable place for both brine and dry curing, though more moisture is re- quired for dry curing. Brine -Cured Pork. There are many different formulas for curing pork by the brine mettles], but the recipe given below If followed closely will give very good results: For each 100 pounds of meat lam— a pounds salt. 244 pounds sugar or sirup. 2 ounces saltpeter. 4 gallons of water. In warm weather nine or ten pounds of salt are preferable. Allow four days' cure for each pound of ham and shoulder and three days for bacon and small pieces. For ex- ample, n 15 -pound ham will take GO days; a piece of bacon weighing ten pounds, 30 days. The brine should be made the day before it is -used, so that it will be cool. All the Ingredients are poured into the water and boiled until thor- oughly mixed. Place ham on the bot- tom of the container, shoulders next, bacon ildes and smaller cuts on top. Pour In the brine, and be sure it cov- ers the meat thoroughly. In five days pour off the brine and change the meat, placing the top meat on the bot- tom and the bottom meat on top, then pour back, the brine. Repeat this op- eration again on the tenth and eight- eenth days. If the pickle becomes ropy, take out all the meat and wash It off thoroughly, also the container. Boll the ropy pickte; or, better, make new pickle. When each piece of meat has received the proper cure, take it Out of the pickle and wash In luke- warm water, string, and hang in the eniokehouse, The temperature of the smokehouse should not exceel 125 de - greet] F. Smoke the meat until it hiis a good chestnut color. An excellent cure, In which the meat is preserved In brine, is formed from Vie mixture of juices brought out of the meat by the application of the fol- lowing ingredients: For each 100 pounds of meat asc— ii% pounds salt. 1 pounds melted sugar or warm sirup. 2 ounces saltpeter. 2 ounces red pepper. All the ingredients should be mixed thoroughly. Rub each piece of meat with the mixture. Pack the meat in a container, hams on the bottom, shoul- ders next, and bacon sides on top. Enough liquid will be formed to cover the hams. Allow the meat to cure for Mx weeks, string and hang in the sntokehouse. The bacon and smaller pieces of meat, after they are cured, should be eaten first. The hams are better after they have aged. Dry -Cured Pork. Dry-cui-ed pork requires more work than brine -cured, though it is some- times less expensive. Danger from rats and other vermin is less in the case of brine-cured pork. Both meth- ods of curing are very successful if care Is taken to see that each opera- tion is executed correctly. Following Is the method of dry curing: For each 100 pounds of meat use - 7 pounds salt. 21-4 pounds sugar. 2 ounces saltpeter. Mix all ingredients thoroughly, then rub one-third of the quantity of this mixture over the meat and pack it away In a box or on a table. The 4hIrd dity break bulk and rub on half of the remnining mixture over the meat and again pack the ment. Break bulk the seventh day and rub the re - meander of the mixture over the meat nnd pack the meat to cure. Allow one day and a half cure for each pound of meat. After the meat has cured, wash each piece with lukewarm water and hang in the smokehouse. Another dry cure is as follows: For each 100 pounds of meat use - 8 pounds salt. 3 pounds warm sirup. 2 ounces saltpeter. 3 ounces black pepper. 2 ounces red peeper. All the above Ingredients should be mixed together thoroughly. Rub each piece of meat thoroughly with this mixture and pack the meat In bulk on a clean floor pr table or in a contain- er. In ten days break hulk and repack the meat. This Is done to make the cure more uniform nnd to prevent souring. Allow the swat to cure live or six weeks. Pickled Pork. Fatbacks cut into suitable pieces, for curing are generally treated in the fol- lowing manner: The pieces of meat are packed in a coatainer and a piinde made of the following ingredients is poured over the meat: To four gal- lons of water add ten pounds of salt and two ounces of saltpeter for each 100 pounds of meat. Smithfield Ham. Smithfield hams are cured as fol- lows: The hams tire placed In a large tray of fine Liverpool salt, then the flesh surface Is sprinkled with finely grouna crude saltpeter until the hams are art White as though covered by a moder- ate frost—or, say, use three to four pounds of the powdered saltpeter to the thousand pounds of green hams. After applying the saltpeter, salt im- mediately with the Liverpool fine salt, covering well the entire surface. Now pack...the hams in bulk, but not in piles more than three feet high. In ordinary weather the hams should remain thus for three days. Then break bulk and resalt with the fine salt. The hams thus salted and resalted should now remain In salt in bulk one day for each and every pound each ham weighs—that Is, a ten -pound hntu aliould remain ten days, and in like proportion of time for larger and smaller sizes. Next wash with tepid water until the hams are thoroughly cleaned, and, after partially drying, rub the entire surface with finely ground black pep- per. Now the hams should be hung In the smokehouse and the important opera- tion of smoking begun. The smokina should be done very gradually and slowly, lasting 30 to 90 days.
