MODES OF PRESERVING BUTTER
In all Maims been written on this sub
ject in this country, we have seen no re
commendation to melt and strain it. Vet
there ... Mtn be no doubt that this process
proves effectual. We have often told our
readers that thorough working is necessa
ry to exclude the buttermilk, and leave the
butter pure. We have told them that it
has been kept sweet for years without a
particle of salt, by separating entirely the
impurities that are found on churning the
cream. But this is not always an easy
matter. 'Washing with pure water is the
beat method that we have practiced in this
We have often asked the question, why
we should not boil the butter that we pro
postrto keep,-as we boil the fat of the hog
for lard, and the fat of cattle and sheep for
It is well known that lard and tallow
will keep sweet for a year without salt.—
And who can doubt that butter may be
kept as long ? On examining a recent
publication, which we noticed in one of
late numbers of the Ploughman--"On the
food animals, by Robert D. Thompson, of
Glasgow,"—we find the following re
"MODE OF' PRESERVING' BUTTER FRESH.
—The cause of the tainting of fresh butter
depends upon the presence of the small
quantity of cutd and water as exhihited by
the preceding analysis. To render butter
capable of being kept for any length of
time in a fresh condition, that is, as a pure
solid oil, all that is necessary is to boil it
in a pan till the water is removed, which
is marked by the cessation of violent ebul-
Mien. By allowing the liquid oil to stand
for a little while, the curd subsides, and the
oil may then he poured out, or it may be
be strained through muslin, into a bottle,
or cut out by means of a knife or cheese
gouge. This is the usual method of pre
serving butter in India, and also on the
Continent; and it is remarkable that it is
not in general use in this country. Bot:
Bed butter will thus keep for any lengthof
time, and is the best form of this substance
to use with success."
To our own taste, melted butler ismpre
agreeable han any that has been kept in
firkins, unmelted. And frowy butter is
rendered more palatable by melting at the
time of using it. Why not melt it before
it changes ?—Masaachusetts Ploughman.

let all these substances go to waste, thus

How TO RARE A DOUBLE CROP ON A
Peon %R.—Plough up your ground in
tended for corn in the fall of the year,
as deep as you can; let it lie till spring;
at the opening of spring, when the frost is
entirely out of the ground, give it a good
ploughing and harrow it down. It is then
in good order for preparing to plant. Take
of leached ashes, two-thirds, and of ground
plaster, one-third ; mix them well togeth
er, and follow the droppers, and put as
much of this mixture on the seeds as you
can grasp in your hand and cover it well
over in tho usual way. The corn will
grow up finely sod retain a strong, vigor-

' drought much better than upon the strong

have no party views—no political bias. The pro
