Qreatly Leaaena Labor of Skimming
tha Milk and Handling Cream—
Aleo Playa Very Important
Part In Making of Butter.
(By W. F. PURDUE.)
The cream separator on the farm
adds value to milk products and 1b a
great labor saver.
The benefits from the use of a
cream separator are many, and the
farmer who milks even three or four
good cows cannot afford to be with-
out one. The farmer who looks close-
ly to his various sources of profit
will not be without a cream separator.
The work economy and money econo-
my to be effected by the use of the
•eparator will not permit the prac-
tical farmer to be without one.
Let us see what some of the bene-
fits to be derived from tbe use of a
cream separator are. First, It great-
ly lessens the labor of skimming the
milk and handling the cream. As
•oon as the milking is completed the
separator is started, as the work is
best accomplished while the milk is
warm. In a very short time one has
the cream In one vessel and the
sklmmllk In another. The machine
may then be taken apart and washed
In a few minutes. One never has a
lot of crocks &114I pans to wash and
air and there Is work in warm weath
er trying to keep a lot of milk cool
until It Is ready to skim, such as
pumping a milk-box full of cold water
several times a day or running up
and down cellar steps with heavy
crocks of milk If the milk Is kept in
By the use of the separator more
cream Is secured from the same
amount of milk. The separator gets
practically all of the cream from the
milk, while where the milk Is sep-
arated by water dilution or by the
deep pan system only a part of the
cream Is secured. The rest goes to
the calves or pigs along with the
skimmllk. This Item of securing all
the cream Is one of the most Impor-
tant ones in favor of the use of a
separator. The additional profit which
only a few cows can thus be made
to render will pay for a good separa-
tor In a short time.
If you have a separator, you sep-
arate the milk while it is warm and
fresh, and the calveB, pigs and chick-
ens get the sklmmllk before It Is
stale or cold or sour.
The cream separator plays an Im-
portant part In the making of good
butter. First-class butter cannot be
made from an Inferior quality of
cream, no difference how Bkillful the
buttermaker. The care of the jnllk
and cream from the time It is drawn
greatly affects the quality of butter
produced. When a separator is used
there Is the cream only to look after
until it Is ready for the churn. Sep-
aration by water dilution or the deep
pan system results in cream of an
Inferior quality; it is thinner than
separator cream and does not churn
as completely. Separator cream
when sold to a creamery will sell for
more money ihan that produced by
other systems, and when made Into
butter at home, the butter will com-
mand a higher price.
The cream separator has come to
stay, and where several cows are
kept It Is indispensable. It may not
be profitable to Invest in a separator
when only one or two cows are kept,
but In time separators probably will
be somewhat cheaper In price
(though they are not really exorbi-
tant In price now) or you may keep
more cows. One of the results from
the invention and perfection of the
cream separator la that many farm-
ers keep more cows now than for-
There are numerous makes of sep-
arators now on the market and a
little judgment should be used In se-
lecting one. A standard machine
should be selected, one that is easy
to turn and as simple as possible.
Separators are made to wear and,
with proper care, a good machine
should last for years, with but small
expense for some minor repairs.
Always remember, however, that
even the best Beparator has its limi-
tations. This machine wilh not rem-
edy the negligence of its owner. If
the milk Is not run through until
cold, or If It 1b run through at the
wrong speed, or If the machine sets
unevenly, thuB causing It to vibrate,
It may not give satisfaction. The
best thing to do Is to always follow
to the letter the Instructions for op-
erating which the manufacturers
send with every machine, then If It
doesn't work satisfactorily you may
be sure that the trouble is not due
to any negligence on your part and
that a reliable manufacturer will cor-
rect the trouble.
Hanging Up Corn.
piece of woven wire fence and cuts It
Into strlpa midway between the up-
right strands as Indicated In the ac-
companying Illustration. The cut
wires are then projected upwards,
each furnishing a projection upon
which an ear of corn may be placed.
The wires may then be hung from a
ceiling or Joist. One advantage of
this plan is that the ears do not touch
one another and consequently air cir-
culates perfectly around the corn.
Where It seems desirable the wire
may be cut lengthwise, and In that
case sufficient room may be made on
one strand for anywhere from twelve
to thirty ears. If this plan is carried
out there will be no molding and the

ease of the kidneys. If you think I
would be benefited by Peruna I will
certainly try some as the doctors have
practically given me up, the same as
they did him."
In reply I wish to say, first, that I
never make any promises as to what
Peruna will cure. No physician can
make positive statements of that sort.
I can say this much, however, If I
were in your place I should certainly
give Peruna a trial. I know of no
other remedy that would be bo likely
to bo of use to you In your present
condition as Peruna. Take a table-
spoonful before each meal and at bed-
time. Continue this for two or three
weeks and then If there is anything
you wish to ask me further write me
and I will give your letter prompt at-
If I find that the Peruna is not
helping you I will be perfectly frank
and tell you so, for I would not have
you take Peruna unless It was really
helping you. But It has rescued/' so
many cases of kidney disease that I
am quite confident you will find It ex-
actly suited to your csbo.
Kidney disease begins with catarrh
Df the kidneys. Peruna is a catarrh
remedy. Unless the destruction of the
kidneys Is already too great Peruna
relieves the catarrh and the cause of
the kidney disease Is removed.
