Flow of sap from the sugar maple trees has started earlier than usual this year, veteran farmers said, the season having opened about three weeks earlier than in the last few years. Light snowfall during the winter and the early thawing of the ground were largely responsible for the early opening of the sugar season, veterans in the industry said. David Kclm ot Elk Lick township, near Salisbury, known throughout the county as the "Sugar King," already has boiled 200 gallons of maple syrup. Location of Keim's sugar ramp In the extreme southern end of the county makes possible his starting to "boil" several weeks ahead of others in the county. With the first thaw the latter part of January, the "king" placed 2,400 kcelcrs around nearly 1,000 trees in his grove. Other farmers in the southern part of the county preparing to open camps within tho next few wteks, are John Mosgrove, Irvin Fikc, Howard Berkley, Mrs. Hiram Saylor, Bert Walker, E. N. Walker, all of Summit township; Allen Compton, Samuel Horchlcr, Leonard Miller and Ward Compton, all of Elk Lick township. Camps in the Shanksvlllc and Berlin districts probably will not be opened for about two weeks. Somerset county ranks second in the United States in producing maple sugar, being surpassed only by one county In the State of Vermont. Farmers said that already this winter scores of persons from Washington, D. C., and Baltimore, Md., have driven to Somerset county sugar camps in the hope of observing the production of maple syrup. Yearly hundreds of gallons of syrup are shipped from Somerset county to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Md., and New York City. The syrup is shipped in 55-gallon drums.
