Worth knowing.

--If those who have smoke house that have been used for sometime, will take the earth floor, but it in barrels, and teach it as they do ashes, then boil down the, lixivated water, they will obtain more than enough salt to pay for the trouble. The writer knows of two instances in which the yield of one was ten sacks, and the other enough to supply a large family for a year.-- Columbus Sun.
