and in the exhibitors of butter, three

The average score of the six highest

There were 1ft samples that scored

those who scored 85 or better on milk,

above 90. The average score of the
first mentioned group was 93.51 points
as against 81.44 points for the second
group. This is what we would ex
pect. It is the same thing that has
been Drought out before and empha
sizes strongly the value of the work.
That la, a man who submits samples
ror scoring regularly. Is bound to
make Improvement.
The bacterial counts were exception
ally low. There were only three sam
pies that scored off heavily on bac
teria, the scores being 0, 8 and 5. Of
these, one man was feeding corn fod
der and grain at milking time, and
using an open paiL The other two
men seemed to be taking the neces
sary precautions to produce milk of
low bacterial count. They reported
their utensils as washed and scalded.
It has been proved that the utensils
are an important source of bacteria
unless they are thoroughly scalded or
sterilized. T here Is some question as
to the efficiency of the scalding pro
cess as it is carried on In many places.
The water must be so hot that hand
ran not be held in it, and kept hot un
til all the utensils and bottles are
cleaned. They should then be invert
ed in some protected place where they
will not become contaminated. The
average bacteria score of all who have
exhibited to date and have reported
the use of a sterilizer, is 3L8: for
those reporting washing and scalding.
26.3 and for those reporting washing
only, 20.8. These relative scores are.
of course, not due entirely to manner
of cleaning utensils, but they indicate
that unsterilized utensils are a source

The data tabulated from the replies
on the question blanks show in gen
eral that there must be a coordination
of all the factors conducive to the pro
duction of high quality milk, coupled
with good sound "cow sense" on the
part of the herdsman, to iproduce milk
that will score 90 or above.
The throe sample sof butter which
scored off heavily, showed poor work
manship, the tendency being: to a
mottled and gritty product. Sugges
tions were made to the makers, which
are bound to bring about improvement
if they are followed. One can accom
plish wonderful improvement In the
art of butter making, by following out
established methods .and these butter
scorings are even more valuable to
the butter maker than the milk scor
ing- to the milk man.
The next scoring will be held in
May. In due season, entry and ques
tion blanks will be sent to all who
have participated before, and to all
members cf the Dairymen's Associa
tion. Others should address Supt.
Milk and Eutter Scoring, Storrs, Con

After due consMeratiAn I concur rn
the views of the division engineer and
the Board of Engineers for Rivera

to provide a channel of 14 feet in

In the state:
Episcopal Residence.
Hartford. Conn,
March 1. 191.
Pear Father:
Tne annual collection prescribed by
the Third Plenary Council of P.altl-
more for the support of home and for-
eier missions will be taken up in the
churches of this diocese on the first
Sunday of Lent. March 12. Ton will
kindly urge your people to do their
utmost to aid the anostellc men and
women who have undertaken the task
of bringing the light of faith to the
pagan races both in our own country
and in foreign lands.
Unusual elTorts must be made by
Catholics In America to supply the de
ficit in missionary resources caused by
the terrible war in Europe. The gen
eral director of the Society for the
proposition of the Faith informs us
that "the European war is affecting the
work of the missions greatly, and if
it lasts much longer, not a few of
them will come to an end. Every day
we receive letters from missionaries
who describe their missions as being
In a most pitiful state and on the
verge of disruption unless some help
Is extended to them. The Catholic
nations of Europe, torn with battle
and strife, are unquestionably be
yond the hope of giving to others
what they possess no longer. and
consequently all eyes are turned ex
pectantly to America."
Every .Catholic heart that apprecl
ates tho Infinite value of faith should
be eager to extend this same priceless
blesslnir to the millions of Immortal
souls that are still blind to the light ol
Christ's gospel- We are confident that
the people of this diocese will surpass
themselves on this occasion by their
contributions to the moyt charitable
and praiseworthy work of the mis
sions for the glory of God and the
welfare of souls.
