Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 23, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta EiGirr iF INTEREST TO THE FARMER PROBLEMS OF THE ORGANIZED FARMERS (Some Nuts to Crnclc by the U. F. A., by S. S. Dunhoni, Ex VlcePres.) In our last Ifttter the writer closDd vfUh the question of wliether it la boat for tbfi organ liatton for all the vice' proslftcnts to bo elected at the same time. Under our present practise all officials cxuoptlng the secretary are elected by oaoh convention. Should this bo tho cHsc? In order to answer the (.iioiition if is necessary to deal somewhat wijh tho runciamental element of human uutarr. In the first place it Is iintursl tor man to desire to bo popular, ami when that dealro for popnlar-Iti" Is to he irystalized by the vote of thB convunliou. the tendency is to increase the desire rather than tho opposite. Our system ot election puts a prlt� on popularity. The man �who governs his action with the view of beinp popular is tho man that (s most �pt to bo chosen. Now Its not a dllfl-�uU thing to bo popular. The person �who speaks on the popular side of any proposition that presents itself to the convention and who knows how to make a snappy catchy speech can always be popular. All, such a parson lias to do Is to keep bis ear well open and catch tho popular cord and put himself In line with it. and he Is assured of popularity. Indeed this Is the high road of the poliUciau, and so long as be sets in this high road ho Is sure to reach the Koal. But pecnit me to nound a warning note hero as I have (irequenlly done before, that tho one f'.hing that our orgariirafion must avoid Is tho wile? and tJ-lcka of the politician. Just in proportion aaVthe U.P-A. grows in inftnencs will it attract the man who has politioal aapira'uts. This is tho history of all farmers' organlaatioos, and when political aspirants have gotten control of the organization its safety Is endangered. But there are men In the organization who would rather be right than to be popular and upon the selection of such men for positions' In the organization, not only the safety, but 1 may say the existence of Uie organliation depends. Many measures come before the con-Yontioix of which some one should pre-aeiit tho impopular side. Frequently this must bo done by some official, be- ? * � ?

As one of the con3e(i^ences of the war the price of granulated sugar has very materially advanced during the past two years. This fact has prompted the Inquiry, can a wholesome syrup be made in the, home from sugar beets tiun in the flour marttets Of' the world.

To these two valuable accessions to the hard wheat's of'Canada is to bo added a new sort that comes midway, bt'twoen Marquis nnd Prelude In tho mntter of yield and ripening. This new sort has been, Introduced at the Central f^tpcrlmental /Parm. Ottawa. . ; by Dr. Chns. E.

Their work is of vast importance to your health and at the first evi-dence of trouble, often occncring from the thirtieth to the fortietS year, take a trditment with' the Experimental Farms has been making a number of experiments, taking as a basis the-simple process described In the U.S. Department of Agriculture,'! Farmers's Bulletin No. 823. The re-enlts of this Investigation have shown that a syrup may be prepared from sugar beets which though not palatable tor direct 'use. as on pancakes, porridge, etc., can be succes3i:ully employed as the "sweetener" In the making of buns, mufflna, cookies nnd gingerbread and possibly other cookery pn)duats in which a dark color Is not obJ'ecUouable. The syrup-the method of making which Is about to be described-is of a thick consistency, very dark, and contains Irom 50 to GO per cent, of sugar. It is intensely sweet but unfortunately leaves In the mouth a very distinct and unpleasant aftertaste which is very persistent-due no doubt chletly to the mineral salts extracted from the beet in the process ot making the syrup. This disagreeable after-taste precludes,-In our opinion, the possibility of using the syrnp directly on articles of food. However, a number of trials with It as a sweet-ener in oooklng has demonstrated that It can be satisfactorily employed In baking operations, as already stated, the product being free from any appreciable unpleasantness. The process, which Is exceedingly simple, is as follows: 1, The beets should be tfioroughly washed, .and the crowns cut off at the i lowest leaf scar and rejected. The i remainder ot the beet is then sliced aa thinly as possible, put into a tub,' _ .....__________ crock or other suitable receptacle and { W effective reiMdy^yw enn'uke." covered with boiling water at the rate ~ of 1% gallons per 10 pounds sliced beets. The whole should be kept hot for an hour or so, with constant stirring, and then strained through two thicknesses ot cotton. The juice, so obtained la hrown or brownish black In color and was found to contain 5.75 per cent, to 6.75. per cent, sugar. /2., The Juice, obtained as already described, is boiled down to a volume ot approximately one-tenth ot that orl-glnajly present, care being taken that the synip as it thickens does not acprch or- bum. During the boiling the.BOum ^hlch constantly rises should be retabved, , To preserve the syrup for future use !
