-Creameries are being establishel of

where there is also a reguilair creamery.

which to teed the COWS Ill winter, aid
hay li stock at one dollar per ton.' As
we have heretofore shown, this pin of
gathering the cream, Instead of the
milk, seems likely to be the plan of the
futuce. The difficultes of gett Ing mi k
from any distance in proper condition
for raising creami are almost iusur
mointable; whilst on tills plan the
milk Is set at home, and the cream tak
en beore any detericration eau take
place, aind this can be transported many
milles without taking Injury. It will
be very caisy to refrigerate tile Cream111,
and to handle it in all respects oil the
most approved plani. This plan, wheni
properly worked out in all its detalls,
seems likely to revolutionize bitter
making, by (Iverting all tile milk or
eream I rom private dairies and coien
tratiLLg it in large establishments,
which can always make a utniform arf
tice. And When we alttaill a proper
butter pavkage, which shall effectually
exclude the air and enable us to trans
port butter to loig distances, retaining
all its line flavor, we helleve there will
be no lack of a market. We can m1ake
as tine butter as any country in the

therelore be always used (but with

desirable to settle the (Istilon whether

To BoI.OATINIKAi.-For the coarser
oatiineals use one (uart of meal to flive
quiar'ts of soft water. Always measuro
them, then you may be sure to have the
sa me consistence. Bol it smartly until
It Is evenly dliffused through the water;
then lot It boil slowly for half an hour,
and lastly, let it simmer. Two hours,
even I s not too long. If you have not
time to cook it so long soak It before
hland and stir it In, when the cold water
is heating. Aflter this stirring It necus
no more. The sliminess we otten see is
caused by constan t stirring. )o not
let it burn or scorch. The best way is
to boll it in a double kettle, or In a tin
pail set Il a kettle of boiling water.
Salt It as it bolls. Serve it warm or
cold, as you prefer. With the file oat
meal the course is miueli the same, only
they recimire much stirring while set
tling, and while more meal may be
ailded. An hour of' bolling may be
smilleiilt, but 110 amount of soaking
will make tihe liner meals qenal to the
coarser kinlds in Ilavor.

A lighlly exeitilng halgeri match took
place near Shellandoal, Mehuylkill conity,
recently. 'T'le dog had to pu1ll the badger
out or an empty barrel to will. 'TIe (log
weighed 21 pounds; the badger tipped the
seale at 17. The match took pIce in a
stable at night. McCandlish arrived with
his badger in a bag and a few moments
later, Donnelly with his (og. Three men
were selected, and the rules were explained
to them. According to the arrangements
illade, I)onelly wagered that his dog
would draw the badger out of the barrel in
less than an hour. )onnelly was to handle
his (log and McCandish the bidger- but
neither animal was to be touched while
they were together. I'ho (log was looked
on as a certain winner. The badger was a
weak and insignificant, looking little animal,
buI, its eyes gleamed viciously, and its long
glistening teeth teeth snapped as it was
taken out of the bag and placed on the
ground. The badger, after eyeing the
crowd, wadled complacently into a barrel
that, was fastened on its side ill one cornier
of the stable. The badger is imported and
is six years old. It. has fought sixteen bat
ties and been "1drawn " four times in this
country and twice in Englind. When the
(log was uchained it approached the barrel
and sniffed at it suspiciously, but the bad
ger's teeth snapped deflantly, and in a
secon(1 " )an "1 had entered and they were
at it. The badger's tough hide and heavy
coat of hair protected it greatly, and as it
used its teeth and braced itself firmly
againat. the sitie of the barrel, ".Dan's " ef
forts to (raw it out did not meet w ith much
success. Alter twenty-two minutes des
perate fighting the dog's teeth slipped and
it fell outside t lie barrel. Before it could
reenter, X)Pnelly seiZp(l the dog and Ill
tended to a number of ugly wounds on its
face. At the same time McCandisi was
paying similar attentions to the badger.
Time Ieing called again, the dog bolted
into the barrel like a shot, and after a brief
struggle got the badger almost to the
month ; but. byi a sudden wrench the cour
igeous little [animal freed itself and got
back before " Dan" could prevenlt. It
was now forty-five minutes since the fight
had opened, and the crowd began to think
that "Dan" had anything but a soft con
ract, and bets were freely offered that the
(log would not. win. The (log was allowed
to breathe twice in the remaining firt in
minutes, and each time it. returned plueki
ly to the fray; but when the time expired
it was still st.rugghlng in te barrel and the
badger was no nearer 1drawn'' that it had
been when the struggle began. Five miII
ttes extra tilie was allowed the dog, but
it failed to defeat its resolute lit tle opponent,
and they were separated.
