Good butter should be solid from the
time it is put upon the table.
Any excitement In the dairy cow
tends to lessen the How of milk.
Failing to gel all the buttermilk out
causes butter to become rancid soon.
To obtnin the best results in churning
the cream should be only slightly sour.
In winter the cream should bo warm
td up to about 00 degrees before put
ting in the churn.
One advantage in brine salting Is
that it almost entirely avoids streaked
or mottled butter.
The milk should always be skimmed
while sweet and the cream then allow
ed to turn slightly sour.
Sometimes butter has white specks
distributed through it. Tills Is caused
by oversourncss In tho cream.
In butter making next to controlling
the temperature is to churn of teii while
the cream is In good condition.
With temperature under control and
churning done at the right time the
butter will become solid and bo easily
On the farm to make the most out of
the milk and butter some of the cows
should be bred to come fresh In tho
spring and some in tho fall. St. Louts
A Simple Itemed;-.
The readiness of some people to send
for a man to do those little things
about the house which the smallest
amount of enterprise or ingenuity
would enable them to do for them-
selves is Illustrated by an incident re
ported in the Chicago Tribune of a
family named Chuckster.
They had bought some new gas burn
ers with mantles. For a week or two
the light was satisfactory; then It grew
dim and dimmer until Mrs. Chuckster
sent for the gas fitter.
"It grows worse all the time," she ex
"When was it put iu?" asked the
"About a month ago."
"Ah, yes; I see."
Then he lifted the chimney off, took
it out to the kitchen, washed it with
soap and water, and the light burned
as brightly as ever.
"Fifty cents," said the man. .
An Argument Fur Social Frnnkncit.
It is best to be sincere, ng a family in
Gcrmautown recently found out. They
had been entertaining n distinguished
novelist from abroad who was not alto
gether acquainted with society's way
of saying things It docs not mean. The
tlmo came for her departure, and as
the host was haudlng her to tho car
riage he said very courteously, "I am
sorry you cannot stay longer."
To Whlcbuune the unlooked for re
tort, "Oh. Du.1! cau!"
There was o.ily one course open. The
trunks were taken down, the carrlago
sent away, and, to tho consternation of
her hosts, the lady re-rutered tho
house. Philadelphia Times.
In tho arctic reglous enrJy rxplorers
were astounded to llnd largo areas of
red snow, but the phenomenon Is now
familiar tc men of science, who know
that red snow, like a green garden
fence, is due to the presence of unicel
lular alga;, the only difference being in
the coloring matter of the protoplasm.
It Is said that acres of snow are fre
quently covered in n slnglo night by
these tiny plants. Good ords. -
"Don't ypu think you have a very
ilinugenhle climate?" wild the stranger.
