couucil it was decided to hereafter
make Main street the dividing line

wards. Mention wos made of it at

he knocked the Marshall down.
The other party drew his revolver
on the Marshall and was about to
shoot him when the Marshall called
for assistance. John Adkins who
was near by thought to save the
Marshall's life, drew his gun, and
at this the desperado turned his
gun on Adkins and fired, missing
him, and instantly Adkins fired at
him and shot a hole through his
coat. At this the fellow with the
gun shot at Atkins and fled, whet:
John Smelser, the mayor, pursued
him aout a half mile with a Win

Prof. Campbell, before the Highland
(Scotland) Agricultural Society, said:
1. Flrgt-rlass Cheddar cheese can
be made by using pure culture! ot a
lactic organism. 2. Tbta organlira
abounds In all samples ot sour milk
and sour whey. 3. The system rec
ommended for the preparation of a
home-made starter Is one which exerta
a purifying Influence upon the bacte
rial content of the starter, and reaulta
In the elimination of bacteria which
lire unnecessary If net harmful to the
production of a fl rut-class material.
4. The UBe of a whey starter la at
tended with results equal In every way
to those obtained from a milk starter.
Of theso results by far the moat Im
portant is that which allows that a
home-mudo starter, if carefully pre
pared, comes after a few days to be
practically a pure culture of the bac
Preparation of a Home-Made Start
er. In order to prepare a home-made
starter the dairyman has to secure two
enameled palls provided with covers.
In the one he pours freah skimmed
milk, and then seta It In a fairly warm
place, so that in about twenty-four
hours the milk, will be both sour and
thick. When this baa occurred he
skims off the surface, breaks u the
center of the mass and takes out halt
a pint. This ho adds to sklmmllk
which has previously been ecaldej
from 155 to ISO deg. V. and aubse
quently cooled to about 65 or 70 dega.
On the following morning thla should
also bo sour and thick, or the tempera
turn of setting has been too low.
Again the Biirface Is skimmed, half
a pint extracted ns before, which in
turn Is added to a third quantity ot
scalded milk. Tho temperature at
which tho second and all succeeding
starters are mndo up must be deter
mined by each worker for hlmaelf; it
will depend upon the temperature ot
the room where the pall la kept dur
ing tho night. On the third day the
starter produced In thla way, If of a
creamy consistence, may be used tor
making tho cheese a portion, how
ever, being retained to prepare a atart
er for the following day.
This process may be repealed day
after day, and If performed In a care
ful and cleanly manner It will go on
throughout the season yielding good
results. As already explained, the op
eration Is one which In a very few
days eliminates undesirable bacteria.
