London, Sept. 0. Sir J. Fcrgusson,
Under Korolgn Socrotary, stnted In tho
House of Commons this afternoon that n
chnngo In thu Government of Bulgaria can
only occur In nccordauco with tho trenty of
Berlin, and with tho consont of tho signa
tory Powers to that treaty. England, ho
said, had no separata Intorcsts in rofcrenco
to llulgurlu. Tho eloctlon of a new Prltico
of Bulgaria must bo unanimous. I Cheer.
Tho Government, snid tho speaker, had
hoped much from tho nbllltynnd great
qualities of Princo Alexander, and thoy
deplored the treachery and violetico which
had Interrupted his reign. Ills fliial de
cision to abandon his work in Bulgaria
was greatly regretted. Princo Alexander
will to-morrow proclaim bis abdication.
The Russian Consulates In Bulgaria arodls
tributlng for signature petit Ions to tho Czar
favoring tho olectlon of tho Princo of Olden
burg ns successor to Princo Alexander.
Princo Alexander's decision to abdicate
Is nttrlbuted partly to loss of vigor of
mind consequent upon the severe trials
which hu has undergone lately. It is be
lieved that his departuto from Bulgaria is
llkoly to result in civil war. Bororo Princo
Alexander announced his intention to
quit tho throne ho received a tolcgrnin
trom Princo Bluuni-cl; recommending that
ho nbilicuto in order to save Bulgnrin.

duced Princo Blsmnrck to sncrlfico Princo
Alexnndcr to tho personal animosity of
tho Czar, wo can not bellovo that Europo
will approve a policy tending to mako the
Czar arbiter of tho wholo continent. Tho

creating tho present critical situation, and
says the clouds in tho Balkans uro darker

A Celestial Wanderer.
New Youk, Sopt. C Last evening a brib
llant meteor was observnbto in Now York
and Brooklyn. It first nppearcd in the
southern sky, whero it looked liko a planet.
This star-like body was brighter than
tho moon. When first noticed tho me
teor had no perceptible motion, but stead
ily increased apparently in size nnd bril
liancy. After an interval of perhaps half
a minute from tho time it was first observ
ed a motion was noticcnble. Slowly but
steadily it passed from south to north
across tho enstern sky. Usually meteors
have a spasmodic nnd rapid motion nud
disappear suddenly. This meteor retained
its brilliancy long after it had reached tho
northeast, where it seemed gradually to
dissolve into space. A slight train of flro
followed in its wake.

Butter Made from Separated Cream En-Joying-
Various speculations and notions
concerning cream from tho contrifugal
separator aro being indulged in just
now aud mainly so, we think, becauso
ns a people we know so little ubout it.
A great many havo tho true Hibernian:
faith in what thoy don't know and so
fall to speculating, rather than reason
ing from facts. Fact3 aro hard to get
but notions como easily. It is quito
evident thnt separated cream, like ovory
thing olso in this world, lias an identity
of Its own and consequently is a.
"law unto itself." Out of this, nnd be
causo many butter-makers treat it just
as though it was separated in tlio ordi
nary or gravity way, hns como certain
foaturcs peculiar to it which aro hard
to understand. For instance, tho yield
of buttor with ordinary milk is some
what greater. Tills has led cortain
writers to claim that tlio yield was
caused by tlio addition of casoine.
We will not assort that it is not so,
but wo can hardly sco it in tho light
of tho fact that tho final act of churn
ing is that of separating tho butter fat
from tho cascinc. Buttermilk is
nothing more than sour caselne and
water. A cortain amount of caseino
goes with tho cream in all methods of
separation, but is separated from the
butter in ciiurning. It will require a.
chemical analysis of tho two kinds of
buttor to provo whether moro enscino
is retained in tho separator article than
in tho other. Somo havo thought that
the' had detected a certain loss of
grain or toxturo in tho soparator but
ter. In this opinion wo havo shared
with others. Hut that can easily be
accounted for on tho ground that tho
separator takes moro of tho smaller
globules of butter fat than nny othor
process. Small globule milk always
makes butter that is somewhat dolicient
In body. Tho larger itho fat globules
tlio moro body will tho buttor have. In
ordinary processes of cream raising n,
considerable portion of tho smaller
globulos aro left in tho skim milk.
Tlio merciless soparator takes them
all, and to that oxtent will
there ensuo a modification of
tho body or toxturo of tlio butter.
Whether or not the heating of tho milk
to seventy-fivo or eighty degrees previ
ous to its separation, togother with tho
great mechanical force exerted by tlio
separator, may not havo a subdividing
offeot upon tho fat globules is an open
question. If this is tho effect, it .will
go far to explain tlio loss of toxture.
Wo havo long boon of the opinion that
centrifugal cream should bo cooled to
a mucii lower degree as it comes from
tho soparator than many aro in tho
habit of doing, and, further, if it is de
sired to preserve tho skim milk sweet
for any length of time, that should bo
cooled to at least forty-live degrees as
soon as it is separated.
It remains a fact, howovor, that but
ter mado from separated cream sells
well in tho market, and largely so, wo
think, becauso tlio best butter market
requires a fresh flavored article and
does not caro for long keoping quali

Hear what an Englishman has to say
to Englishmen on tho subject of breed
ing dairy cattlo to a special purpose.
Ho says: "Consider whethor tho
American lms not reason on his sido in
specializing tho buttor cow, and mak
ing her solcction and treatment a thing
quito distinct from tho boot or tho
milk business." Afowyeursogo these
romarks would havo beun considoro
high heresy in an Englishman, but th
fact is that English dairymen arc awak

is practically takon away from, them

Wo do not mako onougli of
