BUTTER THAT COMES. DIRECT prom

FACTURB CALVES AND VEAL CUTLETS.
A company Km been organized in this
city, with it capital, or $000,000, for the
manufacture of butter^. It is claimed
that the butter is genuine, the means of
producing it being alone artificial; in
other words, the discoverer affirms that
the urtiele is-not mcrcP. butyrous but In
ovcry respect tho complete and perfect
thing, as agreeable, ntUtiticus. and usa-*
ble as the best Orange itunty butter. A
gentleman of rorogni?d ability as a
chomist is the fortumle introducer of
this new wouder. Sj.'cral persons of
wealth have bought strick, and in a week
or two tho mn,nu!'acturos will be conduct
ed on a very largo scale. Tho tempora
ry offices of the Olco Magarine Manu
facturing Company, HP the corp. ration is
called, are at 40 Droadway aud their
manufactory in Forty fifth street. Ar
rangements have beeu?|pade for securing
bettor accommodation^!! Fil'iieth street
and very soon" the majc^Ot will be folly

present the de-jaud f;||(thc article is so
great that it is boyo.n^Juc capacity of
the oouipaifj to suppl^rHtt- Tho profits
arc expected to be e?ScV00 per cent.
As this city-made Orango cnnnty but
ter is used in many of the mot-t fashiona
ble hotels und restaurants, both for
cooking and for tho table, it may be
interesting to the readers of the Sun to
learn something of tho method iu which
it is made. To the first phoe pgents arc
employed to visit the olaughtor house*
and to buy up all the beef fat tHually
styled su-t. This suut is carted to the
butter factory and cleansed. Then it i
put into ordinary meat-choppers nnd
minced fino. It is afterward placed in n
boiler with as much ' water in bulk as
itself. A steam pipe is introduced
among tho particles of the suet and they
are molted. The refuse or membrane
goes to the bottom o' tho water, the
oily substance floats and is removed.
This litter consists orbutter turner und
Stearine. A temperature of 80 degrees
melt? the former and leaves tho Stearine
at the bottonL The butter matter, or
orcam, is drawn off; then about 13 per
cent of fresh milk is added and the
necessary sr-.lt. and the whole is ohurucd
for ten or fifteen minutes. The result
is Orange county ButUr at aboutoue
half tho usual c ist.
The stearine is sold at twelve cents a
pouud to tho candlo maker, and the
refuse at seven cents a poun 1 to the
manufacturer of food for cattle
BUTTER FOR SUMMER tourist*.
All the leading steamship lines be
tween here and Europe are to bo sup
plied this summer with the newly inven
ted butter. In taste und appearance it
is precisely similar to the finest county
butter, made fron the milk of live cows.
Several of the leading moo iu tho butter
trade havj purchased stock, as have al
so many ol the presidents of the steam
ship lines and the proprietors of tho
leading city hotels. Professor C. O.
Oorcmus has testified to the success of
j tho now method of butter manufacture
and prophesies great prosperity for the
new corporation. Professor Paraf, the
discoverer, oxpeots that the new product
I will drive live cow buttor out of the

outsiders who uro acquainted with the
facts uow first mado public, regard tho

Recognition of Merit in the South.
There was no part of tho country in
which talent and virtue, no mntter how
humble its origin, or from what locality
.of the UiliOh, had speedier rccognitiou
than iu the Southern States. Tho illus
trations of this truth are almost number
less. The great George MoDuffie, of
South Curolina was of bumble parentage.
The lather of President Andrew Jackson,
a dative of North Carolina, was a poor
tuutj, and his mother belonged to a hard
working family of linao weavers. The
father of John C. Calhoun lefl bid
family in moderate circumstance?, and
, af'.or his death his son resided with bis
widowed mother, laboring on tho farm.
Andrew JohuBou ol Tcuucsseo, was
originally a tailor. These* tiro only a
few out ol many, instances of the prompt
and practical recognition of labor in the
South, without regard to origin The
same is true, whatever may have been tho
locality from which talent eatne. John
M. Bcrricn, the distinguished represen
tative in former days of Qcorgiu in the
United States Senate, was a native of
NeW Jersey. Johnson, of Virginia, n
of New York, was elected Governor
of Virginia over George \Y. Summers a
native Virginian. The father of the late
Dr Josiah Clark Notf, principal author
of th? famous "Types of Mankind," by
Noil .?ml Gliddon, w.h a native of East
orri Connecticut, but moved to Cauidon,
South Carolina, where he practiced la*
with B?ectiS, was elected to Congress,
and ended his days as a Judge of the
State Court of Appeals. The most
brilliant and popular orator in the
Southcvu States, Sargent S. Pientiss, of
Mississippi, was n native of M i inc. and

How the Boy Arises.
Culling a boy up in the morning can
hardly bo olassed under the head of
"pastimes," especially if the boy is loud
of exorcise tho day before. And it is a
little singular that the nest hardest
thing to getting a boy out of bod is
getting him into it. There is rarely a
mother who is a success at rousing a*
boy. All mothers knows this; so do
their boys. And yet the mother seems
to go at it iu the right way. She opens
the stair door nud insinu dingly observes:
"Johnny!" There is no response."?
"Jim.my !" Still no response Then
there is a sh irt sharp "John !"
followed n moment later by a pro
longed aud' oniphatio "John Henry !"
A grunt from tho upper region
signifies that an impression has boon
made, and the. mother is encouraged to
add, "You'd better bo getting down here
to your break fust, young man, bjforo 1
come up thoro, an' give something you'll
feel." Tbrs so startles the young mau
that he immediately goes to sieep again.
And the operatiou has to be repeated
A father knows nothing about this
trouble. He merely opetis bis mouth
as a soda buttle ejects its cork, aud the
"John Henry I" that cleavos the air of
that stairway goes into the boy like elec
tricity, and pierces the deopest recesses
of his very nature. Aud he pops out of
the bod into his cloths, down tho stairs,
with a promptness that is commendable.
It is rarely n boy allows himself to dia
rogard tho parental summons. About
once a year is believed to be as often as
is consistent with tho ruies of health,
lie saves his rather a good many steps
by his thoughtfulnoss.

A Valuable Invention for Ladies.
It wai Mover's turn Tor invention
tliat caused the disaster. Mover design
ed a new kind of "pateut, inflated
gossamer bustlo" for ladies. It was a
thin bag of India rubber which was to
bo inflated with gas to give it the proper
distcutiou and sufficient lightness. When
the model was comploted, Mrs. Mover
determined to try it. She went into
the yard and tied tho maehing under
her dress, while Moycr turned on the
kitchen gas to All the hag. It workod
well enough for a few momenta, wheu
all at once Mrs. Moycr began to nscend
with frightful rapidity. Sho had barely
lime to screim down to Moyer to put
the children' to bed early, and to tell
Mary Jane to set bread, aud tho next
inslaut she was two miles above the
suow line. It waB embarrassing for
Mrs. Moycr?very embarrassing, as
she could not reach round to the bustle
to luru oil the gus iu order to come
down. So she floated about up there
auioug thunderstorms and clouds and
crows aud aurora borealiscs for several
hours enjoying tho sceucry and studying
the air currents, and wishing sh: had
brought her muflf aud a book to read.
Then she oommeucod to descend gradu
ally until sho came ^jthiii a couple o!
hundred feet of tho earth. She then
screamed some as she floated along, nud
several enthusiastic students of uatural
history tried to biiug her dowu with
shot-guns, under tho impression she was
some new variety of ostrich or flamingo.
Put a sudden gust of wind struck Mrs.
Moyer, and blew her against the Pros

ihe "inflated gossamer bustle" exploded
violently, impressing tho sextou with

of which are fresh, aud others, well?
otherwise. Here are the best of them :
"An A meiican judge once intervened
iu au odd way to prevent a waste of

seeing, IVoui the piles of papers in the
lawyers' hands, that tho first case was
likely to be hurdly contested, he asked,
?What is the amount iu qucsliou V "Two

monoy ; 'call tho uoxt case.' Ha had
not the patience of taciturn Sir William
Grunt, who, alter listeuing for a couple
of day.- to the arguments of couusel as to
tho construction of an act, quietly
abserved, when they had done, "The
act is repculed." Cue morning a womau
was bhowu into Dr. Abernethy's room;
beforo he could speak, sho bared her
arm, saying "Bum," "A poultice," said
the doctor. Next day she appeared,
showed her arm end said, "Better."
"Continuo the poultice." Some days
elapsed before Abernethy saw her again;
then she said, "Well, your fee?*' "Noth
ing," quoth the great medico ; "you uro
tho most sensible woman I ever saw 1"
Lord Aberdeen, tho Premier of the
Coalition Ministry, was remarkable for
tho little iuse he made of his tongue.
When, by way of reconciling him to

Queen smilingly observed : "I believe,
my lord, yon are not often seasick 7"
"Always, madam," was tho brief but
significant reply. ''But," said she, "uot
