GRAINY ICE CREAM
I have been in the ice cream business
for nearly two ueeks and everything has
pine perfectly fine with one exception.
Bonn-times I have a batch of grainy cream
anJ sometimes it will free/.e perfectly
smooth, but will be grainy after it has
hardened. If you can write me the cause
of this I would greatly appreciate it.—
Orval C. Whipple. Comanche County.
The following conditions will pro-
duce thiB trouble:
First, when cream is not frozen hard
enough beiore taking from the freezer
there will be surplus moisture which
will not be taken up by the air incor-
porated and this surplus moisture of
water will crystallze out grainy when
the cream is hardened In the packing
can. A second caus: of grainy cream
is slow hardening in the packing can,
which allows the moisture to sepa-
rate, and later as the hardening is fin-
ished this water or surplus moisture
crystalizes and causes grainy cream,
A third cause of grainy cream is a
freezing mixture low in butterfat with-
out sufficient filler, in which instance
there is no filler to take up the water
during the incorporation of the air,
hence the surplus moisture crystalizes
THE WEEPING MULBERRY
Probably the most popular droop-
ing or as they are commonly called
weeping tree in the middle states is
the Teas' weeping mulberry. This
variety of the Russian mulberry was
originated by John C Teas of Missouri
some years ago. It was a sprout of the
more common form of Russian mul-
berry which it resembles in every re-
spect except that the branches droop
instead of growing upright. Like the
original form, is grown readily from J
cuttings, in tbe form In which it is J
commonly seen in our yards the wee p-
ing variety has been grafted on the
upright variety at about the height |
of ones shoulder. This is necessary |
because tbe instinct to droop is so
strong that when cuttings of the weep- I
ing variety are planted the resultant
tree begins to droop as soon as it gets
a few Inches above the ground.
The Teas' weeping mulberry does
particularly well if it is pruned back .
quite severely each spring. This pre-1
vents In a measure the formation of so ;
many dead branches as otherwise come
from the excessive crowding of the |
about Iowa, just as the farmers, breed-
ers and manufacturers of Oklahoma
are doing at our big exposition. It ia
certainly the best possible way in
which to advertise a state to the
Secretary Mahan says music will ha
one of the big features of the Okla-
homa State Fair this year. In addition
to the concert band which will play
morning, afternoon and night, there
will be something like twenty-two
state bands. The following have al-
ready been contracted for: Nowata,
Bokoshe, Ponca City, Thomas, Okmul-
gee, Hobart, Cherokee, Elk City, and
Never before at this season have
the Oklahoma State Fair grounds been
so nearly in readiness for the big
show. Every building is in the pink
of condition, the walks are in tine
shape and the trees add much to the
general appearance of the big tract
which is nothing short of 160 acres of
education and amusemeut.
] and produces a grainy cream. The best
remedy in this case is to use both gel£u
tine and a powder filler. A fourth
; cause of grainy cream is the slow freez-
! ing of a water mixture, in which in-
i stance the butter fat may separate
and churn partly while the water
[ crystalizes and produces a grainy
| cream. A fifth cause of grainy cream
I is too rapid freezing of a warm mix-
I ture with slow motiou or the agitator
and not sufficient incorporation of air
to take up the moisture, and the moist-
ure crystalizes before the butter fat
! has hardened sufficiently to aid in in-
' corporating the air, which would, of
course, take up the moisture.
You will find that ice cream making
is a simple process when once *ou un-
derstand the principles that influence
the freezing of cream and obtaining
a fine, smooth, velvet finished product.
Ice cream making is an art which
one learns by experience, and differ-
ent mixtures require different treat-
ment. If you will study the above con-
ditions which will cause grainy cream
and apply them in connection with
your every day work you will socn
have mastered that phase of ice cream
making.—R. C. Potts.

|STALE PHRASES ARE NEEDED
Writer Who Expresses a Powerful
Emotion Must Say What Has
Been Said Countless Times.
Our dramatic critic, in his review
of Sardou's play "Above Suspicion,"
said of one of the characters that "his
lips were sealed," and remarked that
Buch phrases necessarily accompany
such plays. They do, indeed, and the
use of them makes one understand
the emotional quality of such plays
better than the most elaborate analy-
sis of them.
There are hundreds of phrases like
this, containing metaphors both vio-
lent and stale, which are only used
seriously by writers who snatch at
the easiest means of expressing an
emotion which they do not feel. For
if a writer has a real emotion of his
own to express he will either use a
metaphor suggested to him by that
particular emotion or none at all. This
is a matter of instinct, not of literary
art; for a fresh emotion will not be
satisfied with stale phrases but will
feel itself misrepresented by them.
That is one reason why, when power-
fully moved, we are often so inarti-
culate. We feel that commonplaces
will not serve our turn, but we have
nothing to put in their place. The
I writer's task Is to be neither inarticu-
j late nor commonplace. He must not
i"be artless, nor must he give us bad
I art for good. If he has a new idea
j to express he is not tempted by stale
I phrases. For they are associated with
j emotions rather than with thoughts,
i since emotions are not discoveries.
) like new Ideas, and when expressed
| In literature are valued, not for their
I novelty, but for the power with which
] tl.ey are expressed. Thus, a writer
I who expresses a new idea says what
; has never been said before, but a
! writer who wishes to express a pow-
! erful emotion has to say what has
! probably been said a thousand times.
and by bad writers as well as good.
; These bad writers have burdened our
memory with metaphors, some of
I them lifeless from the first, some kill-
! ed by constant repetition, or In appro-
! priate use; and their metaphors stay
in our minds because they have been
j 6o often repeated. The good writer's
mind is often infested with them, so
1 that, before he can find the phrase he
wants, he must reject half a dozen
I that he does not want. This is the
l penalty that he has to pay for living
i at a time when literature is old and

HOW TO PLOW DEEP.
Replying to an inquiry as to the
best methods of deepening the furrow
slice on a five-acre tract of red loam
valley land which has never been
plowed more than four inches deep,
will say that it would not be advisable
to plow this land to a depth of nine
Inches this fall. By so doing you will
expose a layer of soil that will prac-
tically have no available plant food In
it whatever, and consequently you
would be very much disappointed In
your yields for one or more seasons
to come. If you will gradually deepen
the furrow slice an Inch per year and
arrive at the maximum depth in that
way you will not be so likely to be
disappointed in your crops, snd at the
same time you will also increase tbe
water holding area of your land aa well
as Increasing the root area for tbe
plants.—J. A. Wilson. Director. Okl*
homa Experiment Station. Stillwater.
Character In Handwriting.
If you write a small, almost fem-
inine hand it may be a sign that you
are destined to be a great statesman,
according to David N. Carvalho, who
finds that small handwriting Is often
characteristic of great men. Grover
Cleveland's handwriting was of this
type and so was William McKinley's.
"You find this type of writing In the
large handed men," said Mr. Carval-
ho, "the men who are broad shoul-
dered and well built, not perhaps tall."
If you are a woman and make little
pothooks at the end of your final
m's and e's you are not likely to
spend much money on tbe latest nov-
elties in dress, nor are you apt to
bother to do your hair up in puffs.
Indeed these little twists on the end
of letters Indicate that you would
make a sensible and economical wife.
Your defect would be that you might

tricity in dress through carelessness.
