The ice is getting there ure holes in many places, which make it danger- ous for those not used to the way." But. I know every inuh of this lako landlord. Alany are the times when there was not a house along its shore that I have trapped halt' the autumn and winter in night of it, and more times than one built my camp-fire on the ice utid sought the fisli beneath it. Thank ye kindly for the warning, but if these chaps don't back out we'lJ go over tho lake to-night." No danger of that, said I We are in a hurry to get home as soon as possible, and we had rather walk to-night than not. How far do you call it across, landlord 'I Some fifteen miles, I think, to the nearest point ol land; but I shouldn't wonder if you had to go further than that to-uight. The river that comes in at the head of the lake is open, and it is very likely it has thawed quite a chan- nel down into the lake. However, you can keep straight across, and if you find that to be the ease, you can follow it down until you come to the firm ice It mtiv make a little extra travel, that is The uioon wijl be up by that I said. It rises at 10, and tho river, you say, is well over to tho other side. That will give us light to get across the channel without danger." Moon or no moon, I eun cross the broke in Ben. There is not a spot I should not know with my eyes shut. The current is pretty strong theic, but I do not think it has been warm enough yet to thaw open the lake; but if it has it will only make a matter of a little more travel must run the risk, and take the shortest cut across." Lend oo. Ben, we are ready. Good by, landlord when we come this way again, we will try and uiako a looger stop with you." Take care and not go under the ice, and look out the shouted the landlord, us a last caution. Them varmints won'D be apt to trouble us to-night, unless there is a big pack hanging round the shore, and the wind should bo right for them to scent us A few of 'em nevrr venture out in an open space like this The sneaking varmints ain't got 110 courage unless there is a cro.vd of tLcui togeth- er.'1 A word now as to where we were and whithei Doutid, and then we go on with our stoiy. There were three of ITar- dy, J'on Grant, and myself Frank and 1 had been on business some hundred uiilei From the Canadian town in which we resided, and, when just on the point cf returning by the tause route we had come, we iell in with Old he was known among the trappers and tra- ders, with whom we were well acquaint- ed, and who, learning our intention of immediately setting out for home pre- vailed upon us to acuompuny him, taking a shoi t cut acrofs by doing which we save ueaily a third of the distance We wanted to tee that part of Cana- da, nnd wo liked the society of Old Ben, so we provided ourselves with snow-shoes, fur it was the list of March, and the snow still Liy as deep us in mid- winter. We were armed, each of us with a rifle, and, while Frank and t had htOe eise to carry, Old Ben had an axe and a large knjpsack, which he cirried a supply of food, which we should stand in need of as, according to his reckon- ing, we should touch on but oue or two settlements on our routp and, although we had our rifles to depend upon for food, it was the season when game is scarce The first of our tramp, along obout the middle of the afternoon, we reached the little settlement on the shore of the lake, where we stopped and rested our- selves until the EJUII went down, when, preparing, on the subject of the prop-repacking of butter aud ch'ceso. We, publish an ab- stract of the aitidle in the journal men- tioned Too much stress cannot be laid on the importance of having "iill'dairy pro-' duce in an attractive and' condition when ready to be'offered for, The article in and of iUc-lf be unexceptionable as to flavor, be slighted by because of not p'reser.ting aij-attiacme appearance totfife eye Ass u mi rig that your butter all' it should be iu it in e'ssen'tia'f that i't be nioulded into' full-edged, clean-cut rolls, and that just tho right quality of mublin should used. In wrapping, the cloth always fully cover the side of the rollj leaving no part of the side of tho roll bare not cut too shoil nor too and folded just enought ovor the top 80' as to give the roll a dressy appearance.' About three-eights of an incu is the" proper length tu be that in, regular plaite, cqui-distant an'd ni-atly done. The bottom of the roll slmuM' be covered also, so as to allow no age to the butter fVoui the bottom of the box. These minor details may look like small matters, but they much more important than dairyinoii are generally aware of Much of llio- butler damaged by "meltsug down." would have been in order had the been properly packed. Neatnes, pulous and exact, is indispensable. If a" .stamp is used, avoid one that nivcn roll a flat" appearance of buttor. The stamp should enhince the rppearanco of the butter. The box bhoul also look bright and clean, especially on the Redwood boxes arc not desirabiiT for besides being liable, when new, to stain the batter, the boards ot which" >hey are made ,spiit easily, and the dust is certaiu to find its way through the smallest crack. Boxes should Le scalded thoroughly immediately use as well as immediately after. To'r give the box a neat appearance, paint if as often as occasion requires, if not made of maple or ash. Never use a poor box, as the bottom is liable to fall out in handling. Be very careful to never send a box to market that has the slighter J crack on' tho cover, as in transporting, boxes are piled five or fcix high, aud bhould the' upper box leak, the brine will be sure to find its way into every crack in the' cover, and leave a dirty streak on the' top of the batter. In butter for pickling, it u' a great mistake that it must be made extra salty if your brine is right your' butter will keep Be sure your barrel is well lined and clean put in' your rolls so they will be tight, but riot mashed out of always, aa' in fresh butter, cover side of the roll fully vrith otherwise jour rolls will stick to each oilier and often' break up be pure you place' a cloth' over oach layer of the butter' as it goes' into the barrel, so as to prevent rolls' from this also pre'vents the of one roll and the bottom of the other from sticking. Never' leave the barrel with the plug out, as it admits dust into the barrel wh'en refilling with' brine if d'jst settles on the top of the rolls, and cannot be removed, it causes' a loss, and often prevents a sale that might otherwise have been effected. Store packers should be very care-" ful to assort the butter llTiit domes them, so an to have but one c'olor and' quality in a packoge Butter uneven' in color always bndly do'not' uew and old. or whit'e and when avoidable In packing" Butter in k'cus' or barrels, the packages bh'bu-ld be numbered by proper marks, .as they are put down by daiiymcn, so that the set-' er may know which package to' open to find tho qualify, color. wanted. It is nor, generally known' that, dairymen should keep their salt is1 a clean and pure place. Salt absorbs moisture, and with any bad flavors" which it may have acquired.. OKC the' rcry best salt obtainable. Use no fresh' water to wash you butter or to wet your clothes with, It tends t'o soften it; it' extracts the flavor. In fact, it out quilities that cannot be replaced.1 Use only the strongest and sWcetest brine jou can gfcfL Finally, send by a conveyance where' your butter will be handled carefully and kept of the sun. Equally as' much care should be taken in ing firkin butter and pickled roll' as in1 preparing fresh butter and anything-' that can possibly give stain or. .soiled1 appearance should be avoided1. t If you1 pack poor bu'tter, it will not have proved by keeping, and it t will not be reasonable to ex'pect a price when' sold.
