ADDRESS D:. ILV. PIERCE, BUFFALO, N.Y.
Butter injured my meSe .
Economic conditions make it neces
sary at present to hold butter in stor
age from the summer season, when it
is plentiful, to the winter season, when
it is scarce, If the butter is properly
made this can be done without mate
rially injuring its quality. It often oec
curs, however, that butter which has
been held in storage for some months
develops disagreeable flavors that
greatly lessen its value. These bad
flavors that will often pass unnoticed
when the butter is fresh may become
so serious a defect after three or four
months in storage as to render the
butter almost unsalable. The chemi
cal changes which cause these bad
flavors are often too dmall to be de
tected by the ordinary analytical
methods of the laboratory, but the
senses of smell and taste are far more
delicate, and as soon as bad flavors
are detected by them the value of the
produce is lessened, says St. Louis In
Some metals either cause or greatly
accelerate certain bad flavors in but
ter, although most of the experiments
along this line have not included stor
age butters. Recently the scientific
staff of the Dairy Division of the Bu
reau of Animal Industry in the United
States Department of Agriculture has
reported that the presence of very
small amounts of iron in cream causes
certain undesirable flavors to increase
in intensity during storage. These
flavors are often designated by butter
experts as "metallic," "oily" or "fishy."
The injurious effect of iron was found
by adding iron in known quantities,
varying from 1 to 500 parts, to a mil
lion parts of cream. The butter made
from such cream was compared with
that made from cream where all pre.
cautions were taken to avoid any un.
due contact with iron during the
whole process of butter making. The
butter was stored at 6 to 10 degrees
Fahrenheit, and the quality of the but
ter was scored by experts at different
times. In every instance when the
butter was scored a few days after
making, the samples to which iron
had been added scored lower than the
butter made from cream which con
tained no iron. This held true in most
cases on the second and third scor
ing, which occurred at intervals vary
ing from 20 to 187 days. The most
noticeable feature was the rapid de
velopment of bad flavor in the butter
containing the iron. When both the
control and the experimental butter
became fishy it was noticed that the
control butter was the last to become
3o. There was a marked oily flavor
present in most samples that subse
tuently became -fishy. Only a small
proportion of the iron added to the
:ream was found in the butter, the
-emainder having neen taken up by
he buttermilk and wash water.
Butter was also made from cream
vhich had stood in rusty cans, and in
:very case this butter had a peculiar
aste and was easily picked out from
ill other samples. The buttermilk also

per, and it was found that copper.
ven in small quantities, seemed to
ause more marked changes of flavor
in butter than did the iron, with a
decided tendency toward a fishy fla
vor in storage. Two experiments
showed very plainly the harmful effect
of using poorly tinned pasteurizers,
even though the cream came in con
tact with the copper surface for only
a few seconds, for, aside from this, all
other conditions were exactly alike
during the complete process of butter
This work shows that if cream is
kept in rusty cans or comes in contact
with iron or copper at any time dur
ing the process of butter making it
may take up iron or copper from rusty
cans, exposed bolt heads, or other
metal parts of pasteurizers or churns.
in sufficient quantities to affect the
flavor of storage butter. Though
there is nothing to show that the na
ture of the flavor is appreciably
changed, it does demonstrate very
clearly that the rate of development
of the undesirable flavor is greatly ac
celerated during storage by very small
quantities of either iron or copper.

White Mourning Millinery

best, for there are the women of dis

above all others, knows how to cos

The most notable and smartest of
the prevailing styles reconcile us even
to extremes. The revival pf interest
in mourning millinery and mourning
gowns has resulted in the adoption of
white or white and black for summer
wear, instead of all black. There are
wonderful examples of this elegant
headwear to be seen more frequently
than for many season'. It has an un
deniable distinction. Added to this,
the new white crape is very beautiful.
The all white crepe hat is to be seen,
with either white or black net veil
bordered with crape.

WAISTS WITH NEW TOUCHES
Washable Crepe de Chine, Heavy
China 81lk and White Madras Are
Among strictly tailored waists those
mannish shirts with the soft turned
over collar and cuffs are popular. Usu
ally they are made of washable crepe
de chine, heavy china silk and mad
ras in white, and white with a colored
stripe. Buttons of colored glass are
very effective when they match the
stripe of the silk.
In addition to the mannish silk
waists that are worn with the strictly
tailored suit the business woman will
welcome those in challis, flannel and
albatross. Many of these are made in
the usual mannish style, with the front
opening, and soft collar and cuffs, but
there are very attractive models, slight
ly more elaborate and more feminine,
with bits of hand embroidery, and
fancy collar and cuffs of satin. As a
rule, flannel is used for the tailored
waists, and pretty challis and colored
albatross for the more elaborate mod
els, but since all of them launder beau
tifully the light tones need not be a
bar to the usefulness of the blouse.
On dark-hued waists there is always
a touch of white at the neck, a frill
or a yoke. The ground of the Scotch
plaids used for some of these blouses
is usually a blue, brown, green or
weil balanced that everyone admires
them. Sometimes white predominates.
with only touches of black, and some
times the design shows the reverse
treatment. In the black and white
crepe sailor pictured here there is
about an equal division of the colors.
All white is worn for first mourn
ing, exactly as black crepe is. A smart
example is shown here, with the body
of the hat and the trimming both
made of white crepe. It is character
istio of mourning millinery that the
trimmings and ornaments are made of
crepe. The new modes show wings
and flowers simulated in this material.
A wreath of small lilies in white and
clusters of small roses in black were

Black tulle is very much worn with
spring and new summer hate. It may
be put on as a "ruff" to stand upright
over brim and against crown, or it may
be put under the brim to lie against
the hair and temples. A very pretty
idea is that of laying it on the hat to
be a go-between for the hat and the
trimming. If a white hat of satin the
trimming is apt to be tiny roses in
brilliant shades of red, yellow and
green on a green vine. Fruit and all
kinds of impossible designs are thus
reproduced and dwarfed in satin.

FEEDING MILK TO CHICKENS
ContalMn All That Beef Scrape and
Greeabone Do and Also It ls
The most successful poultrymen
feed some kind of animal food to
their chickens of all ages and condi
tions. In the wild state birds secure
both vegetable and animal foods.
Bugs and worms supply the animal
food, and seeds and other vegetable
growth the vegetable food. The ani
mal portion of the food is always a
necessity for normal maturity and
good egg laying. So essential is ani
mal matter in the poultry feeds that
the packing firms manufacture and
sell large quantities of prepared beef
scraps and ground bone, which are
sold very widely over the country.
Those who use them find that it pays
very well. It has been found both ex
perimentally and by practical tests
that sweet milk, sour milk, butter
milk-in fact, milk in any form-con
tains all the elements found in other
forms of animal matter.
Milk contains all that beef scraps
and green-cut bone do, but in a
more diluted form, and it is highly
digestible, and no digestive troubles
arise from either old or young chick
ens consuming large quantities of it.
Everyone who keeps cows and poul
try on the same farm will find it
profitable to reserve all the milk for
feeding the flock, and dispose only of
butter fat. It is the best animal food
that can be given to them. Give all
the chickens all the milk they will
drink. It will do them no harm.--] .
MILKING MACHINES IN FAVOR

ment of Large Dalrle--Room for

recognized part of the equipment of
large dairies. It has already reached
the point where it compares favorably
with ordinary hand milking in the
item of germ content of the milk and
In its effect upon the flow. There is
still room for much improvement from
the mechanical standpoint, especially
in the matter of simplicity and ex

The success of the milking machine
like any other machine, is closely as
sociated with the personality of the
operator. Unquestionably it takes a
higher grade man to operate a milk
ing machine successfully than to hand
milk a cow equally well. There is
every reason to think that in the
hands of careless operators the ma
chinery will work injury to the cows,
but the same result is too often ob
tained from inefficient hand milking.
