non, May 6th. This was a great
day for our club members and par
ents who attended. On account of
Circuit Court being in session the
program was conducted in the Chris
tian Church. The church was crowd
ed with club members, parents and
Judge Bowman assured the clut
members and others that the county
was behind their work and would do
all possible to give them a better
and bigger chance for an education
at home on the farm. He praised
the club work and announced that
the Fiscal Court had made it possi
ble for the club work to continue.
The good singing was made possi
ble by C. C. Davis who also spoke of
the value of club work to Rockcastle
County. Music was furnished by the
Mt Vernon Band. This added much
to the inspiration of the day.
A wonderful dinner was served by
Chamber of Commerce and Parent
Teachers' Association in the Masonic
Hall. Speeches and yells filled the
room for some time after the meal
After dinner the business men of
the town brought out their automo
biles and gave all club members and
visitors a tour over the New Dixie
Highway aouth of Mt. Vernon. The
rain did not interfere with the pro

Itt immense popularity is dus not only to
the fact that every line in it i written for South
ern farm families by men and women who
know and appreciate Southern conditions, but
to the practically unlimited personal service
that is given to subscribers without charge.
Every year we answer thousands of ques
tions on hundreds of different subjectsall
without charge. When you become a sub
scriber this invaluable personal service is
yours. That is one reason why we have

Some people might think there's
no use in keeping a record of your
summer's work, or in letting the
boys and girls have the proceeds of
what they work for. That's just
where the trouble lies, if we didn't
keep a record of our work, and care
for our project, and in the end get
the proceeds, how would we know
how much we had gained? How
could we see where our work had
gone. The reason why so many boys
and girls are leaving the farm is be
cause they never belonged to a club,
and because the chicken that was
mine became maw's hen, and the calf
that was mine became paw's cow.
I have heard older boys and girls
say that one of the bitterest disap
pointments of their young lives was
when they were given calves or lambs
and felt so proud because they were
owners of them and worked with
them feeding and training them, then
if a stock buyer came along and of
fered their father a certain price,
away would go the pets and into his
pocket the money; so they soon learn
ed as the funny paper says, "it
doesn't mean anything." But now,
thank goodness, their parents and
mine are growing older and wiser aa
the Bible says people shall be; the
club work has been introduced to
them and I am getting the benefit of
it because I have a flock of Rhode
Island Reds to call my own.
In our club we not only work but
have a good time too, and the boys
and girls that work the hardest are
usually the ones that get the benefit
of the best times.
Last summer I went to m club
camp, which lasted all week; they

to give to the butter the desired
firmness. (,reat rare should be tak

ing too sour aa it destroys the sweet
flavor of the butter and makes it
more likely to turn rancid.
The churn should be thoroughly
cleaned before using. It should be
rinsed with scalding water, then
thoroughly rinsed and chilled with
j colli water. The butter bowl, ladels
and paddles, etc., should be treated
in a similar way and placed in a
pan of cold water until needed.
The churn should be filled not more
than one-third full. When too full
the time required for churning is
usually longer. It is best to pour
the cream into the churn through a
I strainer to remove posnible lumps or
curd particles or any foreign matter.
The churn should be run at the rate
producing the greatest concussion,
w1kh can usually be determined by
the sound. When the butter gran
ules are the size of whest kernels
the churn should he stopped and the
buttermilk drained off. The butter
in the granular condition should then
he wa-hed twice with pure water at
j the same temperature as the butter
milk. It is essier and better to wash
the buttermilk out than to work it
out, as in the first method the but
termilk is more thoroughly removed
than by the second method. Fur
thermore, much working of the but
ter tends to give it a salvy consist
ency which is undesirable.
The butter may then be removed
from the churn and salt added at
about the rate of It-4 oi. to I h. of
butter. It ahould next be carefully
worked (by pressing rather than
smearing) until the salt is evenlr
distributed and a solid smooth body
is formed. If the salt is not worked
in evenly, the color will be streaked
or mottled. The butter is now ready
to lie made in'o a roll, or moulded.
The best butter has a firm Waxy
body, a bright appearance, and, when
a slab is broken, a grain like broken
steel. When eaten it seems to melt
