When Charles M. Taylor of Phila
delphia spillod his cream pitcher on
his lunch table, over two yoars ago,
ho muttered something under his
broath, -but tho peculiar actions of
that cream on his tablecloth aroused
his curiosity and set him to maiding

aid of a churn c physical labor.
When ho wants butter "now ho takos
a tin pan, puts in some absorbent
cloth and a ploco of blotting paper,
pours in a quart of croam and puts
tho whole in the refrigerator over
