Call for 11 '1 ustrl Crop,
"This country is now growing a
larei- part of the mustard put up
in Eugland as well as in this coun
try," said a commercial man, "and
California id raising the larger part
of it. The mustard seed h:i? just
been harvested in California, and
probably will run up to 10,000,000
pounds, or 1,000,000 pound? more
than the crop of 1895. The seed is
kept six months before being
ground. The brov?n seed h2 th.;
best flavor and greatest pungency,
while the yellow produces the most
oil. The English mustard-packers
hac made the yell:; most fashion
able, however, and a result there
are ten pounds cf yellow produced
for every pound of the brown,
though the brown is stronger in
every respect. Probably one-half of
the English mustard try t is used in
this country grew i:, England.

vinegar, properly spiced, for twenty
