Never growl because a newspaper fails to giv*- exerx snap of news, so
long as you take no pains to giv. the editor information. W•• have seen
readers who are awfully put out at times oceans- we made no not, of the
arrival or departure of a friend visiting them, or of a local affair, or of the
•heaven-sent babies that visit their homes over night. The average editor
isn’t a medium nor a miud reader. but gets most of his new s the same way

where it will have a 40-foot head of water. It is - xpected that the contract

It has been said that as no two men eat alike so no two make love,
in precisely the same manner. Usually tie* man conforms t*> the disposi-
tion ol the woman whom be loves. f] here is just one rule which all men
should follow : Be explicit.
The woman who loves will not need to be told
bow hot to say “yes.” The vacillating woman has no
right to allow n man to propose to her and accept him
temporarily because she cannot make up her mind to
tell him the truth. There perhaps may he eases where
a woman is justified in accepting a suitor for whom
she only feels sincere liking and respect, provided she
is frank with him and he is content, hut the woman
who says “yes” merely because she is tired of saving
“no makes a grave mistake, for which she is sure to
pay dearly later on. ‘‘Let your yea be yea and your
nay nay, for what is more than these eonieth of evil.”

When creameries make butter they do
not bother with working the milk; they
separate all of the cream by use of the
modern separator, and leave the skimmed
residue out of the proceedings.
But buttermilk was too good a drink
to lose, and it has always been considered healthful. So when modern
creamery methods began to deplete the buttermilk stock efforts were made
to do something. I'nclc Sam has put the stamp of his approval on these
( (Torts, and John Michels of the North Carolina experiment station of the
department of agriculture, has just finished a series of tests for making
artificial buttermilk, and an investigation into the methods employed b\
the creameries. The artificial product, according to Mr. Michels, when
properly manufactured, “cannot be distinguished from ordinary good
buttermilk.” Here is the way it is nu.de:
As soon as the skim milk leaves the separator, there is added to it
some “good milk;” this approximates the fact of natural buttermilk.
To this mixture is added a large quantity of pure culture lactic acid
bacteria, and the temperature is brought up to 10 degrees. Enough cul-
ture is used to make the milk curdle in about six hours. When the tem-
perature is above 10 there is a tendency for the milk to “win v off" after
it has curdled.
When thoroughly curdled the milk is churned for 40 minutes in the
same old-fashioned way; this churning breaks up the curd clots and the
result is buttermilk that will satisfy most persons.
Artificial buttermilk is sold nt five cents per quart in quart bottles
tnd 15 cents a gallon in < an-. . Ithougl : • - < • 1 ties thi
price goes tip tit '!o and JO cents a gallon.
“Considering both it- fo..d and tonic prmertie«," snv Mr. M '.el-,
“Buttermilk may be considered cheap at ten cents a quart.”
