At tho con elusion of the lecture which explained In detail'the' methods of canning vegetables, Mrs. Davidson kindly answered a number of questions. Mrs. Davidson gave very clearly the different steps in canning and also several recipes which are appearing in another column of the Herald. She urged the women to can the surplus vegetables In their gardens but In case of a shortage of bottles to can those that contained the most food value. For instance spinach and other greens make an appetizing dish in winter but do not contain nearly as much food value as peas or beans. WAR RECIPES (BY Canning of Fruit and Vegetables MRS. R. R.

The' principle of canning !s: Sterilization of food kills bacteria, yeaats, mold and their spores on food and so prevents decay. When these are killed and sealed so no more can get in, the food will keep indefinitely. � Canning Is therefore a question of sterilization and our probletft Is to accomplish this as simply atjd thoroughly as possible. Canning, using preservatives such as sugar, spices, salt, vinegar is quite common and simple, but these*, could not be used with certain vegetables and retain flavor. The 3 day intermittent method of canning vegetables in water has been Used successfully, but is vory complicated compared to the cold pac'K method used now. ,The cold pack method is simple, very, effective and can be done in the home with ordinary kitchen equipment: The vegetables are packed cold and raw in air tight jars,.filled with boiling salted water, partially sealed and subjected to boiling temperature long enough to sterilize thoroughly. Utensils Used. 1. Glass jars or tins. 2. Two sauco pans. 3. Wire basket. I. Two tablespoons. 5. Colander. G. Hot water hath outfit which consists of a wash boiler with a rack oc metal or wood. This rack of metal or wood Ib to keep jars about one inch from bottom of boiler and to allow freo circulation of water around jars. Preparations. 1. Test jars to see if air tight. Partially i.'ll with water and invert. 2. Place boiler In which rack has been placed on stove and fill -with hot water high enough to cover bottles by an inch, , 3. Prepare vegetables. ) Steps in Canning. 1. Blanche or scald vegetables by pouring boiling water over and leavo 3 to 10 ' minutes according to vegetable. 2. Plunge In cold water and drain quickly. 3. Fill jar with vegetable. 4. Add 1 teaspoon salt to each quart jar (or half teaspoon to pint jar). / 5. Adjust rubbers. 6. Fill jar with boiling wator, using a silver knife to force out any air bubbles. 7. Scrow on top, but not tightly. 8. Place jar on rack in wash boiler. 9. Sterilizo from 20 to 180 minutes according to vegetable. 10. Romove, being careful to protect from drafts. Tighten covers, invert to see if air tight. � � � 11., Label and oover to provMt bleaching. -- - Method of Canning Peas. Peas aro best when canned within tour or five hours of being picked. Shell peas. Pour boiling water over and leave 7 minutes. Drain. Plunge quickly in cold watej, and quickly drain: , Fill jar with peas and add I teaspoon of salt to 1 quart jar. Adjust rubber.

T Below are to be found figures giving comparative costs of bitulilhtc and macadam paving for 13th St. The cost of the bond for bitultthic will be $7fi,-433.77 as against $18,130.25, a difference in favor of macadam of $28,000 Part o� this difference is taken up in buying equipment for macadamizing A steam roller and a rock crusher would cost |7777.77 In five per cent 30 year bonds. No matter which kind of paving is decided upon there will be a general bylaw for sewer construction which will have to ho done in order to give drainage for the proposed paving area. This will cost $4�!i5. Taking tho paving costs for the two different kinds being considered by the commissioners, under a sinking fund bond, the cost per 25 foot, lot per annum to those having frontage along 13th St. would be: Macadam, $0.72; bitullthlc, $10.06, a difference in favor of macadam of $3.94. Under the instalment bond, tho annual cost to property owner's per 25 foot lot would bo: Macadam $8.1 f, per lot; bitullthlc $9.76 per lot, a difference in favor of macadam of $3.61. The instalment bond would thus bo considerably cheaper than the sinking fund bond. The U. S. market will absorb instalment bonds much more roadily than sinking fund bonds.

Ju 1914 the �ity aa4 the gJF.ll. joint- ly, built a subway on Thirteenth St., which is the main artery between north and south Lothbrldge, and from the country to the north of Lethbridge. In wet, weather the subway, into which drains, a very large area, and through which passes a very large volume of freight from the freight sheds and the mines, is almost impassable. Although the city is very largely in debt and .tho council is opposed to doing any uuprofit making work, it would appear that some things must bo done, and this looks like one of them. The, ratepayers on the north side think if the Initial expenditure is mado on the subway paving, connecting the freight sheds with the paved streets on the south side, that about one-third or one-half more paving should bo done in parving that part of Thirteenth street which covers the business section of Ul� u;>;t.'.i side, !jc cause in wet weather that narrow street is almost impassable as well as tho subway and. injures business tremendously. Wo speak ot Thirteenth street as narrow, because It was formerly a road allowance and is only Oil foot wide, having 12 ft. sidowalk on each side and two street railway tracks in the centre. Wo aro enclosing data prepared for a bylaw. if you decided that one of these pavings-macadam or bitullthlc-would bo approved by your hoard, we will prepare and submit for your approval, tho bylaw giving us the right to issue sinking fund bonds or instalment bonds. This proviso is due to the fact that on tho English market only sinking fund bonds are acceptable, while in the States only Instalment bonds are desirable. It is a question, after the war, which will be the host market. Our charter gives us four years after the bylaw Is passed to issuo the bonds so that we would have plenty of time to try out both markets. Before proceeding further with this matter, we would liko to know what your attitude will likely bo. i Hoping this will receive your immediate consideration.
