The St. Louis exposition is the
largest pocket edition of the world
ever before offered to the public.
The palace of Agriculture at the
St. Louis exposition is said to be
the largest building in the world.
It is about 100 rods long by 30 rods
wide. It contains eight or nine cor
riders each 1600 feet in length and
numerous transverse corriders. A
person can walk several miles in
this building without passing the
same exhibits twice.

Senator Fairbanks' paper, the
Indianapolis NewB, does not display
exuberant confidence over the situa

the nomination of Mr. Fairbanks
will undoubtedly strengthen the tic

be uncomfortably close for the re
publicans. The News finds that in
all probability the republicans will
be confronted by a united opposition
in that state. But that condition is
not confined to Indiana. Through
out the country the democrats are
getting into line with their old ardor
and a renewed and reasonable hope
of success. —Waverlv Democrat

Des Moines, July 29.—A. H. Kief
fer of Manchester, Iowa, assistant
state dairy commissioner, has writ
ten to the state dairy department,
giving an analysis of the Iowa but
ter which won first place alongside
of that of Minnesota at the St. Louis
fair recently. It was the second
score in which Iowa butter showed
up so well, the percentage for the
Hawkeye state having fallen very
low in the first score. Mr. Kieffer
says that thirty per cent of the Iowa
butter scored 95 and above, which he
calls a good record. He says in
commenting upon the butter ex
hibits from the state:
"It is with considerable pleasure
that I describe the butter as it show
ed up in St. Louis, owing to the fact
that about 30 per cent scored 95 and
above. This butter that scored 95
and above had a nice, clean, rich
flavor. The richer the flavor (lie
higher the score.
"The butter that scored from 93
to 95 was that what is termed gcod
butter, fairly clean in flavor and well
made. Some of it had a very slight
weedy or fishy flavor. In this class
there were quite a few packages that
scored 94 or 94| on account of over
salting. The butter had rather a
coarse flavor, on the briny order
which undoubtedly would have
scored higher had it not been over
salted. The butter that scored be
tween 90 and 93 per cent showed
unclean flavors, such as unclean
milk cans, unwashed separators, un
clean conditions on^he farfti or in
the creamery, over-ripe cream, over
ripe starters, also had.
what we term
summary flavor TSaWftujuiUtUns,
.etc., etc. There was a very small
per cent of butter below 90. If I
remember correctly, the secretary
said that there were only seventeen
packages. This butter showed over
ripe cream, heated conditions, ran
cidity and in fact was very poor.
'The butter in this test was quite
similar to the June test, which
speaks very well for the boys in the
contest, as anyone who is familiar
with the buttermaking business
knows that the week this butter was
made in is one of the most trying
weeks in the year, as it is the week
of-the Fourth of July. During that
week milk and cream usually come
to the creamery in the worst condi
tions because the hired help on the
farm usually take a day or two off
and the work generally falls upon
one man, who is liable to neglect
taking care of the milk and cream.
"The milk is also delivered irreg
ularly. The help in the creamery
quite often take a few days off at
this time and it is a most trying
•week for the buttermaker and I
think that all the boys who stayed in
the contest should be congratulated.
There were again a few more pack
ages which were mottled. A little
more working would have overcome
this defect. There were, however,
more 'packages of butter in a weak
body and somewhat on the greasy
order, which indicated that the
cream was churned at too high a
temperature, overchurned and also
"Buttermakers must bear in mind
that when they skim a very heavy
cream this cream must be diluted to
a 25 or 30 per cent butter fat and
must be churned at a temperature of
50 degrees at this time of the year.
The richer the cream the colder the
same must be churned in order to
obtain butter of a good body. Again
I wish to state that practically all
the high scoring butter, that is, but
ter scoring 95 per cent and above,
was made out of good milk, the
ripened with a good com
mercial starter and the acid test was
used to determine the amount of
acidity in starter and cream. This
fine butter was made by the butter
.maker and the cream ripening was
controlled by him and not left to
favorable or unfavorable natural
conditions or changes."

cared for the poultry and took all
the proceeds. He furnished the

Grant's nature, as every one knows,
was very strong. A few days after

he could not give her the information
she desired, but that tie would Bend
