Why so Much Poor Batter?
Murky Weather Standing too Long
Low Ferment Quick Rising,
Churning and Selling.
Cor. Country Gentleman.
I find there is an unusual amount
of poor butter served just now upon
public tables. It Is said that the
'store butter," gathered at the coun
try stores In trade for goods, Is also
exceptionally "off favor." While
this condition i9 doubtless the result
largely of present circumstances, still
it is exceedingly unfortunate, as it
will result in a reduced price for the
butter sold now, and for that which
may be held, as it Is a fact few realize
that when rancidity begins, it always
keeps on. It i3 a kind of thing which
My attention was recently called
by a lady to her butter, which was
"off flavor," and she could not ac.
count for it, as she skimmed and
churned as she always had done. The
arbitrary rules which some dairy
people lay down for the governing
of their dairy work will always lead
to more or less trouble. We have
all the cream, forgetting that as soon
as coagulation begins, the rising of
the buttter globules ceases, as they
cannot force their way up through
the clots of thickened milk. They
can barely lift themselves, and they
cannot do this when the milk ' is
thick or v iscid (sticky), as it is in the
autumn and wintej;. The souring or
coagulation of the milk begins at the
bottom, and so we are worse deceiv
ed, and give more time for greater
fermentation of the cream, high or
low. Let it bo understood that by
the term low ferment I mean, and so
designate, the bitter ferment. Wait
ing, then, in cool weather for coagula
tion, the creature of warmth, to show
itself on the surface of the milk-pan,
Then take all them fields!"

sort of weather is most decidedly un
favorable to the making of good but
.ter. There will be an increase this
year in the amount of poor butter put
upon the market, because of the lack
of ice with so many dairymen, and
of cold water to cool the milk and
cause the cream to rise quickly.
I always favor the creamers for set
ting milk, for the reasons that this
method saves much hard work and
with ice or cold water the cream can
be . obtained within twenty-four
hours, and always sweet, which
makes the butter-maker master of the
Situation. When milk is set in milk
pans, the rule is to leave the milk
standing till it becomes sour and
curdled. There is more poor butter
made under this rule than under any
other. The weather has so much to
do with the coagulation of milk and
cream that a world of butter receives
its death blow while in the milk-pan.
Convenience is the curse of butter.
The word and the idea should not be
known in the dairy vocabulary. It
costs a gieat deal of money any
thing can wait, even the baby, better
than cream. Other things may, most
likely, be remedied: but cream once
on its way to decay, will keep on.
As a rule milk should always be
skimmed while it is sweet, whatever
way it is set, for the cream to rise.
Most excellent butter may be made
from cream allowed to stand until
the milk and cream are sour and
thick, if it has not been too long
reaching this condition, and the
cream is removed just as soon as this
condition is reached. Under this sys
tern one should almost "sit up" with
the milk pans like a patient in order
to churn the cream as soon as the
proper period arrives. Delay is ruin
ous. To wait tor milk to sour, or
cream, when the temperature is low
is always dangerous. A cool spell in
summer and cold weather are fruitful
conditions to produce poor butter
Under such circumstances the milk
stands too long before it sours, and
the cream also.and the cream becomes
bitter, and the butter has a bitter,
frowy taste. Why this is so has been
a mystery, as the cream is kept in a
cool place, and no fermentation is
supposed to have occurred.
I have come to the conclusion that
we have all been mistaken, and fer
mentation does take place; but it is
not the active ferment, nor in the
same way, nor produced by the same
germs, as the ferment which changes
the sugar Into lactic acid; but a slow
ferment by other organisms, which
work up a slow and peculiar putre
faction. In other words, the bitter
ness which we find in cream set too
long to rise, or In cream kept too
long to ripen, is a putrefactive fer
ment, which originates in a low tem
perature, is not so active, but equally
fatal to good butter; just as we have
high fevers, plainly discernable, and
a low or slow lover wnicn gnaws
at the vitals, but which is not so ap
parent. Old cream and stale cream,
whether it acquires its age and 6tale
ncss on the milk or In the cream pot,
is then an insidious and fatal disease.
There is no remedy but absolute pre
Whoever would have sweet and
wholesome butter must skim their
milk early after setting, and churn
often. There is a great quantity of
good butter in these two ruin, as
there is poor stuff in their neglect.
ine Keeping oi mac till it , sours
arises from a desire, on the part of
the economical butter-maker, to get
with the closest economy in hand
ling. As we do a regular business
weekly, we get reduced express rates,
as no packages come back, and buy
ing packages by wholesale gives a
less price; still, nearly three cents
must be deducted from every pound.
We could not afford to submit to a
further reduction on account of any
of the commercial terms which are
so often evolved from butter tubs, to
wit-"off flavor," "bitter," "frowy"
I pity, from the bottom of my
heart, all who are forced to submit to
reduced prices for hardearned butter.
It makes the fireside cheerless and
the future almost hopeless. What
can be done to prevent all this? Get
the cream from the milk within 21
hours after the milk comes from the
cow, and into tne butter tub within
48 hours, and be no longer troubled
and discouraged with spoiled butter.
When made, unless you are sure you
have a good place in which to store
and hold it, and good reasons for so
doing, sell it as soon as made. We
do, and take no further risks.
With a creamer, ice and cold water
you come within these hours. With
cold water, half and half put into the
milk, you will get your cream in 24
hours. With ice and cold water out
side or without ice and cold water out
side but inside, you can get all your
cream in 12 hours. With a warm
room at U" or sir you can get your
cream ready for the churn within 24
hours. Warm the cream with warm
water, not above liir. bet it in a
warm room and keep it warm; as you
skim every day, churn every day.
You may put the night and morn
ing's skimmings together, and then
one will be 30 hours old if you bring
the churning in the morning every
day. We churn Sundays if the cream
Is ready. A lot or cream held over
Sunday and so spoiled will injure a
whole tub of butter in which it is
put. This practice spoils thousands
of tubs of butter, for the one rancid
churning will always hurt a whole
tub, however big it may be. I sim
piy state a lact, and leave the con
science part for each one to follow ac
cording to their own dictates. Cream
kept 24 hours after it Is ready to
churn will always make poor butter,
and it would be best not to pack this
with the other, but consume it at
home. I know of no shorter, safer or
more certain way to get less poor but
ter than to skim and churn often.

Dear Gents : I desire to say to yon that I
biwe suffered for many years with a very seri

every medicine I could hear of but nothing
done me any appreciable pood until I was ad
vised to try your Great South American Nervine
Tonic and Stomach and Liver Cure, and since
nsice several bottles of it I must say that 1 am
surprised at Its wonderful powers to cure tho
stomach and general nervous system. If every
one knew the value of this remedy as I do, you
would not be able to supply the demand.

and I consider that every bottle did for me one
hundred dollars worth of good, because I have
not had a good night's sleep for twenty years
on account of irritation, pain, horrible dreams,
and general nervous prostration, which has
been caused by chronic indigestion and dys
pepsia of the stomach and by a broken down
condition of my nervous system. But now I can
lie down and sleep all night as sweetly as a baby,
and I feel like a sound man. I do not think:
there has ever been a medicine introduced into
tliis country which will at all compare wUh
this Nervine- Tonio as a cure for tho stomach."
