DISCOVER HOW TO KEEP
STORAGE BUTTER SWEET.
Way Found In Dairying to Prevent the
Recognizing tlio necessity of cold
storage butter In the summer for use
in the winter, when supply Is shorter
and ileum nd greater, and at the same
time knowing that stored butter Is apt
to have disagreeable flavors, the gov
ernment at Washington has experi
mented until now It is able to an
nounce a means of really keeping but
ter in cold storage in Its natural state.
It has found that some metals either
caused or greatly accelerated flavors In
butter. The scientists of the dairy di
vision of the bureau of animal indus
try reported that the presence of a very
small amount of Iron In cheese caused
undesirable flavors to increase in In
tensity during storage. These flavors
were often designated by butter ex
perts ns "metallic." ,"oily" or "fishy."
The Injurious effect of iron was found
by adding Iron In known quantities,
varying from . 1 to 500 parts to a
million parts of cream. The butter
made from such cream was compared
with that made from cream where all
precautions were taken to avoid any
undue contact with Iron during the
whole process of buttermaklng. The
butter was stored at 6 to 10 degrees
F., and the quality of the butter wa
scored by experts at different times.
In every instance where the butter was
scored a few days after making the
samples to which Iron had been added
scored lower than the butter made
from cream which contained no Iron.
This held true In most cases on the
second and third scoring, which oc
curred at intervals varying from 20
to 187 days. The most noticeable fea
ture was the rapid development of
bad flavor In the butter containing the
Iron. When both the control and the
experimental butter became fishy It
was noticed that the control butter
was the last to become so. Only a
small proportion of the Iron added to
the cream was found In the butter, the
remainder having been taken up by the
buttermilk and water.
The Influence of copper on the flavor
of butter was studied In a similar man
ner, and It was found that copper,
even In small quantities, seemed to
cause more marked changes of flavor
In butter than did the Iron, with a de
cided tendency toward a fishy flavor
In storage. Two experiments showed
the harmful effect of using poorly
tinned pasteurizers, even though the
cream came in contact with the cop
per surface for only a few seconds, for.
aside from this, all other conditions
were eiactly alike during the complete
process of butter manufacture.
The conclusion was that If cream
were kept In rusty cans or came In
contact with Iron or copper at any
time during the process of buttermak
lng It might affect the flavor of storage
butter. It Is expected that this discov
ery will lnsnre good storage butter, as
buyers will hereafter be able to check
their consignments and make note of
the dairymen whose butter goes wrong
In the warehouse.
Surprising Cure of Stomach
When you have trouble with
your stomach or chronic con
stipation, don't imagine that your
case is beyond help just because
your doctor fails to give you re
lief. Mrs. G. Stengle, Plainfield,
N. J writes, "For over a month
past I have been troubled with my
stomach. Everything I ate upset
it terribly. One of Chamberlain's
adlvertising booklets came to me.
After reading a few of the letters
from people who had been cured
by Chamberlain's Tablets, I de
cided to try them. I have taken
nearly three-fourths of a pack
age of them and can now eat al
most everything that I want." For

Fncle .Thomas Jefferson Todd
tells us a good one about how ho
once made a corn crop in spite of
himself. He left home just about
the commencement of corn
planting time, and he hired a man
to plow corn at 50 cents a day,
supposing he would plow till har
vest, and then quit, as he could
make better wages harvesting,
even if the corn was not "laid by."
Uncle Todd never got back home
until after harvest, and the corn
was all out in silk, but the hired
man was still plowing away at
the corn. It happened that it was
a very dry season, and this con
stant stirring secured a crop to
Mr. Todd, while his neighbors
went hungry for corn that year.

Monday and Tuesday in fixing and

number of friends to welcome her
to her new home. After some in
troduction and congratulations
the company repaired to the din

ladies of the church, which was
enjoyed by all. In the evening
nearly all the members of the
rhurch and lots of the young
folks met at the parsonatre to
welcome their pastor and passed
a very enjoyable evening. In the
course of the evening Mr. Adair
made some very sensible and ap
propriate remarks, thanking the
company for their kindness and
hoping the pleasant relations be
tween pastor and members, so
auspiciously opened, would con
tinue to the end, and that they
might all be mutually benefited
thereby. After singing and prayer
the company wended its way to
their several homes, each mental

ARMY POST TO GO
Secretary Garrison Fl:ns to
75 PER GENT ARE USELESS.
General Leonard Wood Haa Been Be
hind Fight or the Ueeleat Arrrx Poet
For Laet Three Year Protect From
Congretamen Who Have Blocked
Plan In Paat Is Certain.
The "pork barrel" army post must
go. Secretary of War Garrison ha
announced his determination to elim
inate what he considers the source of
the present wastefulness of expendi
ture, In the maintenance of the army,
by withdrawing troops from the an
tiquated and useless posts in which
the army Is now scattered In small de
tachments all over the country.
Secretary Garrison, who la now mak
ing a five weeks' tour of the country,
will visit most of the army posts in
the United States. lie is accompanied
by Major General Leonard Wood,
chief of staff, and Major General Ale
shlre, chief of the quartermaster corps.
The secretary has found that there
are 1G7 army posts In the United
States, or one post to every 250 sol
diers of the mobllo army. lie agrees
with General Wood that 75 per cent
of theso posts could bo abandoned not
only without impairing the efficiency
of the army, but with most beneficial
results both for the efficiency of tho
troops and for economy.
Reduce Number of Poats.
It is the secretary's plan to reduce
tho number of army posts Just as rap
idly as possible without upsetting con
ditions. Ho will endeavor to concen
trate the troops In larger posts, and
as soon as quarters can be found for
the forces now scattered among tho
little posts tho concentration will go
forward. The secretnry considers that
ho has authority under existing law
to put the troops where he sees fit
without going to congress for any ad
ditional legislation. Congressional aid
will be needed, however, In complet
ing the concentration, as by law the
United States cannot dlsposo of any
property without the consent of con
gress. The secretary will probably not be
gin any transfer of troops until he has
returned from his tour of Inspection.
A protest from congressmen la certain
ns soon as he puts his present pjnn Into
effect, as members always have been
found fighting for the retention of
army posts In tholr districts. The mon
ey expended for army supplies as well
as tho expenditures by the soldiers
themselves makes the army posts popu
lar In the cities where they are located.
Vact Sums Expended.
.Similarly vast sums have been ex
pended In Improving army posts In tho
mlddlo west without any military val
ue principally because congressmen In
terested have been anxious to throw
contracts In the way of business men
In their districts. Military considera
tions have been allowed to play only
n small part In the way huge sums
have been parceled out to army posts
which the army Itself was only too
anxious to get rid of altogether.
The fight against the useless army
post was begun by Secretary Dickin
son and continued by Secretary Stlm
son. Mr. Stlmson drew up a deflulto
plan for relieving the situation, but
was balked In his efforts by congress.
General Wood had been behind the
fight on the useless army post for the
last three years.
FIERY CROSS ON MOUNT LOWE
Loe Angeles Project to Set Up 150
Foot Electrio Signal.
A movement to erect ou the summit
of Mount Lowe, near Los Angeles, a
cross 150 feet high, which shall blar.e
forth by night with powerful electric
lumps und by day reflect the sunlight
from a brightly enameled surface over
all the country, was a short time ago
begun at Christ Episcopal church In
that city by the Rev. Baker P. Lee.
He suld the plan would have the
backing of nuiny church and club or
ganizations and that sufficient support
had already been pledged to assure a
"It is fitting that In this city of the
BDgels our faith In God and Christian
ity should be thus symbolized," he said.
"We should let our light shlno forth
so that all the world may know that
this Is a clean Christian city as well aa
a city of progress and opportunity.
"It Is my strong desire, and the plan
as conceived so contemplates, that the
fund be pledged and tho cornerstone
laid with appropriate ceremony Imme
diately after the new city administra
tion is inaugurated into office. Nothing
could better symbolize the high pur
pose of a moral community than an
altar light to be kept burning."
The plan contemplates the raising of
a fund of $150,000 to $200,000, which,
It Is thought, will bo sufficient to erect
the cross on a granite foundation and
provide for Its maintenance.
