with the bam or nt tho well. The lat

the best place. If the milk room Isnt

enough to provide plenty of tight and
ventilation. The Door should be of
smooth cement. If the walls are of
the same material or of brick coated
with cement they can be more easily
kept clean than If they are made of
wood. The floor should be scrubbed
often enough to keep It perfectly
clean, and the tank should be denned
Use of the Hand Separator.
Within the lant few years the band
separator bus come Into general use
on farms where six or more cows ure
kept, doing away with the old gravity
system of raising cream. With the
separator all the cream can be re
moved, which Is Impossible by nny
other method. The sklmmllk can be
fed to the calves warm and sweet,
which Is a great advantage. There Is
less fat In the sklmmllk. but this pie
meut can be supplied to the calves n
good deal more cheaply by flaxseed
than by butter. There may he much
less space In the milk tank, aa only
the cream will need to be kept there.
Where a creamery Is patronized a
great deal or work Is saved by having
only the cream to haul.
In selecting a separator the most Im
portant point to look to Is the ease of
cleaning. There is n great deal of dif
ference in separators In this respect.
Some are so complicated that It Is al
most Impossible to wash all parts
thoroughly, while olhers can be so
completely taken apart that washing
Is an easy task. It Is not the number
of parts to a bowl that mnkes n sepa
rator dlllleulr to keep clean, but the
ease with wpleh all these parts may
be separated, so that they may be
reached with a brush.
Some of the other points to consider
are convenience, capacity and durabil
ity. The capacity will depend largely
upon the number of cows kept. It Is
always better to get n machine too
large than too small. The latest mod
els of neu fly all makes of separators
are made so that the top or the supply
tank Is little more than waist high.
No other kind should be bought. It Is
a useless waste of energy to lift henvy
cans of milk five or six feet high every
night and morning. With these low
built makes the sklmmllk and cream
cans may 4p placed on the floor, so
that they will require little lifting,
Tha Importance of Cleanliness.
Serious objection has been made to
the cream separator on the ground
i Inn it lowers the quality or the cream
ntiil butter. In many cases there Is
ground for this complaint. 1'nless ab
solute clenulluess Is the rule the
cream Is liable to be or poor quality.
The milk and slime In the bowl are
the best of food for Injurious bacteria,
nnd these multiply rapidly when the
separutor Is not kept clean. Never
rinse the bowj with cold water and
leave it until the next milking It can
not be thoroughly cleaned In this way.
In cold weather a rinsing with cold wa
ter, followed by half u gallon or more
of hot water, will do at night. At
least once a day In winter and every
li"U' the uiaehlne Is used in summer
the bowl should be taken apart, wash
ed well and thoroughly scalded. Be
sure to remove erery particle of grease
and dirt. Use a brush, never n rag. A
rag Ik difficult to keep clean nnd often
forms n home for bacteria. The so
called "dish rag flavor" Is often found
in butter, duo to the ue of a rag In
washing the separator. Nelthpr should
ii itig be us6d to dry the bowl or other
tinware, lu starting to vnl the sepa
rator ami hi tier milk dishes cold water
should be ticd first to remove the
milk, as hot water waul the casein

rinsing should lip followed by n thor

Dual rinsing with boiling water, ir the

Handling the Cream.
As soon an the cream Is separated It
should be cooled down to about 50 de
grees as rapidly as possible. This can
be done by putting It In a tank or
fresh well water. Do not keep the
cream too long before taking It to the
creamery, not over two days In wnrm
weather utid three or four In cold.
Good butter cannot be made from old
It hardly pays to make butter ou the
farm unless special customers can be
obtained. Creameries havo multiplied
until there Is oue within easy shipping
distance of almost every farm. The
organization of co-operative creamer
ies has kept most markets oil a strictly
competlUve basis, so that the prices
paid for c renin are usually ns high as
the market will warrant. These large
creameries are usually equipped with
nil the In tout appliances for buttermnk
ing. They arc In charge of experienced
buttprmnkera and arp In shape to
turn out u uniform product that will
sell for much higher prices than the
ordlnnry run of farm tnadu butter.
Use of the Tetter.
No dairy farmer can afford to be
without n Babcock tester. A complete
tester, consisting of a tester, milk mid
cream bottles aud n supply of sulphur
ic acid, cau be purchased for about $3.
With a tester the farmer can test his
cows, ns described In article 8, nt
home. lie cuu test the separator to
Bee that It Is working properly. If tho
bowl Is wabbly or the machine out of
level a considerable amount of butter
fat may be lost lu the sklmmllk with
out tho dnlrymau knowing anything
about It. If you churn your own cream
a tester will enable you to test your
buttermilk and determine whether or
not you nrc losing much butter fat in
this way. If you patronize a cream
ery your tester will come bandy for
keeping a check ou the tests nt the
creamery. Most crcamerymen are hon
est, but that Is all the more reason
why the dishonest ones should be run
out of business. Underrendlng the test
2 or a per cent will add greatly to the
profits of the creamerymnn nnd can
not be detected unless the patrons have
testers of their own.
The Babcock tester Is slmpfe to op
erate. Thp sample of milk to bp test
ed should be thoroughly tested by
pouring from one Jar to another three
or four times. A sample Is then suck
ed up Into the pipette, By putting
your linger on the top of the pipette
,you can let the milk run dowu until It
Just comes to the mark on the neck.
Then run the milk Into one of the test
bottles Number the bottle to corre
spond with the sample. The sulphuric
acid used Is what is known ns com
mercial sulphuric aeld. The acid rind
the mill: should be ut the same tem
perature before mixing. If they have
bp"en In the same room for n few
hours they will be all right. Fill the
measuring glass up to the mark with
the acid, inking care not to get any
on your hands or clothing. Pour the
acid carefully dowu the side of the
bottle and then mix It thoroughly
with the milk by giving the bottle a
rotary motion. The sulphuric acid
combines with the albumen nud casein
and leaves the fat free.
Set the bottles In the tester as soon
us the acid has been ndded, When nil
the bottles are tilled thp tester should
be turned ut a uniform rate of about
100 revolutions n minute ror live min
utes. This firings the fat to the top of,
the liquid lu the bottle, Uot water

bring the fat up to the ueck of the
bottle. The machine Is then whirled

for two minutes. Then more hot wa
ter Is added to bring the fat column up
Into the graduated neck of the bottle.
After this the machine Is whirled for
one minute more, and the test Is ready
to read. The reading should be done
before the fat hardens. Each of the
small spaces on the- neck of the bottle
represents two-tenths of 1 per cent.
The number of spaces through which
the fat column extends Indicates the
percentage of fat In the milk.
lu testing cream special bottles must
be used. A small balance Is needed to
weigh out the samples, as cream can
not be accurately measured. Nino
grams nre used for each sample, and
as much more hot water Is added.
Only about two-thirds as much acid Is
needed ns for milk.
