Nutrition in Various Grains.
BY POP. NORTON.
Wheat is one of the most important of onr
crops. The grain contain from fifty to seventy
per cent, of starch, from ten to twenty per
cent of gluten, and from three to five pcrecnl
of fatty matter. The proportion of gluten is
said to be the largest in the grain of quite
It is a singular fact, that in all the seed of
wheat nnd other grains, the principal part of
the oil lies near or in the skin, as also dociAft
large portion of the gluten. The bran owes
to this much of its nutritive and fattening
qualities. Thus in refining our flour to the
utmost possible extent, wc diminish somewhat
its value for food. The phosphates of the
ash also lie to a great degree in the skin.—
The best fine flour contains nlwvc seventy
pounds of starch to each hundred. The res
idue of one hundred pounds consists of ten or
twelve pounds of gluten, six to eight pounds
of sugar and gum, and ten to fourteen pounds
of water and a little oil.
Ilyc flour more nearly resembles wheaten
flour in its composition than any other; it
has, however, more of certain gummy and
sugary substances, which make it tenacious,
ami also impart a sweetish taste. In baking
all grains and roots which have much
starch in them, a certain change takes place
in their chemical composition. By baking,
flour becomes more nutritious, and more
easily digestible, because more soluble.
Barley contains rather less starch than
wheat, also less sugar and gum. There is
little gluten, but a substance somewhat like
it, and containing about the same amount of
< katmcftl is little used as food in this coun
try, hut it is equal, if not superior in its nu
trious qualities, to flour, from any of the
other grains ; superior, I have no doubt, to
most of the fine wheaten flour of the northern
latitudes. It contains from ten to eighteen
per cent, of a body having about the same
amount of nitrogen as gluten. Besides this,
there is a considéra hie quantity of sugar and
gum, and from fire to six per cent, of oil or
tatty matter, which may he obtained in the
form of a clear, fragrant liquid. Oatmeal,
thon, 1ms not only abundance of substance
containing nitrogen ; hut is also quite fatten
ing. It is, in short, an excellent food for
working animals and, as has been abundantly
proved in Scotland, for working men also.
Buckwheat is less nutritious than the other
grains which wc have noticed. Its flour has
from six to ten per cent, of nitrogenous com
pounds, about fifty per cent, of starch, and
from live to eight of sugar and gum. In
speaking of buckwheat or of oats, wo of
course mean without husks.
Rico was formerly supposed to contain little
nitrogen ; hut recent examination have shown
that there is a considerable portion, some six
or eight per cent, of a substance like gluten.
The percentage of fatty matter and of augur
is quite small but that of starch much larger
than any grain yet mentioned, bciug between
eighty and ninety per cent, usually about
Indian com coutains about sixty percent,
of starch, nearly the same as oats. The pro
portion of oil and gum is larger, about ten
per cent, this explains the fattening proprie
ties of Indian meal, so well known to practi
cal men. There is, besides these, a good por
tion of sugar. The nitrogenous substances
arc also considerable in quantity, from twelve
to sixteen per cent.
8wect corn differs from all other varieties,
containing only about eighteen per cent, of
starch. The amount of sugar is, of course,
very large, and the nitrogenous substance
amounts to the very large proportion of twen
ty percent., of gum to thirteen or fourteen;
and of oil, to about eleven. This from the
above results, is one of the most nourishing
crops grown. If it can he mads to yield as
much per acre as the harder varieties, it is
well worth a trial on a large scale.
Cream and Milk.
Cream cannot rise through a great «Icpth
of milk. If milk is desired to retain its
cream for «i time, it should therefore be put
into a deep narrow vessel; and if it be de
sired to free it most completely of cream, it
should be pourcil into a broad flat vessel.
The evolution of cream, is facilitated by a
rise, and retarded by a depression of temper
When cream is kept near the freezing point,
the cream will rise very slowly, because it
becomes partially solidified. In wet and cold
weather the milk is less than in dry and warm;
and on that account more cheese is obtained
in cold than in warm, though not thundery
The season has its effects ; the milk in the
spring is supposed to be best for calves ; in
summer it is best suited for cheese, and in
autumn the butter is better than in summer.
Cows less frequently milked than others,
give rich milk. Morning's milk is richer than
evening's; the last drawn milk of each milk
ing, at all times, is richer than the first
Q'/*' The reason why candles with twisted
or plaitc«! wicks «Io not require snuffing is
this : the burning wick, by the force of tor
sioo of the fibre which composes it, presents
itself to the air, and finding a due supply of
oxygon the carbon burns away. The little
heads of vitreous matter which aro seen to
accumulate at the end of the wick arc so
many heads of glass Formerly the drop
ping of ashes into the tallow or stéarine of
the candle was productive of much incon
vcnicnoc, when it was suggested that tho
wicks, previously to being covered with the
greasy coating, should be steeped in a solu
tion of borax ; the plan was found to succeed
perfectly ; tho ashes fusing with borax formed
a glass whbh no longer soiled the Stearine by
droppiug upon it.

is the discovery and invention of Dr. Theodore
Pomeroy, of Utica, an ol«l an«l successful medical
practitioner. Its peculiar efficacy was suggested
by unexpected developments in a ca«e of Prolapsus
Uteri while under treatment for another complaint.
The suggestion in this instance lexl to a course of
long and severe study, which resulted in the com
bination of the Catholicon. We have seen so much
pain and patient endurance of suffering to th«»se
who laboreil under these diseases, with the cor.vie
tion that there was no cure, that we feel this medi
cine will, ere long, be deemed an inestimable ac
quisition. . .
A physician of much eminence, after examining
the medicine and observing its effects, remarked
that "a new era had sprung up in the lives of fe
males and that did they but understan«! in the least
degree the virtues of the remedy,and the inability
of the profession to treat their cases, they wonld
not long waste their money in doctor's bill«, nor
yet suffer from the torture of a curable disease."
