Setup from watermelons.

--A man in Ross county, Ohio, states that he had made last season from watermelons, grown on one acre of ground, eighteen barrels of syrup, which sold for eighty cents a gallon, giving $450 for the acre of land and the labor. The process is as follows: ‘"Take only the soft part of the ton, rub it through a wire sieve into a barrel, then strain out the juice in a copper kettle, just us you would cider or maple sugar , and be careful not to scorch it when nearly done."’
