That one would, of course, con- tain within itself the possibility of re- stocking the world with a valuable arti- cle of food.

Evaporated Farmers in some localities where the apple crop has failed this year have found use for their evaporators in sav- ing tneir pumpkin crop. There is a good demand for evaporated pumpkins, and at good prices. American Cultivator tells of one fanner who had 1J acres in pump- kins, evaporated it, and the product is now worth Pretty good this for a year when many farmers allow their evaporating apparatus to lie unused. 1 1 1 l'. r 1- l 1 ii ou 1( i he i r!

For tbe jewel case have five pieces dipper in hand, and wash down all small particles of butter that may stick to in- side of churn, allowing same to run out at milk outlet.

You will observe this last brine churning renders the wood hard i by being absorbed into the surface of the wood: also removes all loose wood fiber and grease, making the churn white and sweet. Churns that have not been treated to this method will not be white until sev- eral treatments. After once perfectly sweet one treatment each week will be sufficient during warm weather, and once in ten days iu cold weather. Robert McBeth in Creamery Journal. tVhey Vats. The practice of canying the Light's and morning's milk to the factory in one can is a custom that should be avoided from May 13 to Oct. 1. especially if the yesterday's sour whey is to be" trans- ported back home in the same can. It is wonderful what foolish things some patrons will do, and then eipect that thi-ch.cte maker is coins to make the Dest. i am about sure tnat tne manv fatal cases of cheese tj-rotoi- icon are traceable back to carrying rot- ten whey ia the milk can: the trans- mitting of the germs of putrefaction from a never washed, ever germ breed- ing and stinking whey vat to the milk. In additoa to the usual sermon about belter cows and cheaper food we do need some of us a full sermon of gen- uine John Calvin orthodoxy hurled at us for our sins of mixing tbe result of dirty hands, clean milk, FOUT whey and rusty milk cans promiscuously together, all in one original package.
