HOME FARM AND RANCH. TEMPERATURE FOR CHURNING. Churning is usually done at about sixty-two degrees Fahrenheit. Yet a Western farmer says he knows a suc- cessful dairyman who always churns at lifty-four degrees and he heard one declare at the National Butter. Cheese and Egg convention held at Milwau- kee last December that he churned at liftv-eirht degrees. We may infer from this that different temperatures nre reauired for different conditions. In one instance at least a different temperature was demanded for sweet cream. John Gould agricultural edi tor of the Cleveland Herald relates the case of a neighboring creamery In -which the buttermilk was churned in order to get all the butter. 1IOLSTEINS. .IV. lluiMtt-iu uiueucr nays. x been said that HoLsteins do not give rich milk.

THE STATESMAN. A.U8TIN. TEXAS. The Atkinson bequest to Vander- bilt university is to be contested. Tins nullification of the civil rights bill is chargable alone to Republicans. Stir up a darkey if you want the air filled twith odors exhilarating to radical politicians. The political canvass in Virginia waxes hot and the indications point to the defeat of Mahone. Ben Butler says he will be a dele- ge to the Democratic presidential fc convention; ana that is not all he hopes to be. Ik the supreme court decision only affected people "of our color" it would make but little difference with the politicians. Evidently Tilden wants his presi- dential mantle transferred to McDon- ald. That Watterson booms the latter shows how the old man feels about it. Bob Ingersoll is doing what he can to vitalize an Issue regarding civil rights.
