Velpeau informed the marquis that an operation was urgent and that the fee would amount to four thousand francs. At this the ma»quis made « wry face and left. A fortnight later Doctor Velpeau while making his rounds in the Hos pital de la Charite, was attracted by a face that seemed familiar to him. In answer to his inquiry he learned that the patient was a footman In the ser vice of a nobleman in the Faubourg Saint Germain. The surgeon found that his case resembled in every par ticular the somewhat unusual one for which the marquis had consulted him a fortnight previously.

Unless the churning ! is carried out satis'actoi i'y the qua- I lity of the butter is bound to suffer. ( It should take from 20 to 35 minutes ' for the cream to turn to butter in the churn. i Acidity in milk assists the action of rennet, resulting in a rather firm 1 curd. In making soft and other kinds of cheese where a soft, tender curd is required; acid milk cannot be em- ' ployod. In some varieties of cheese the presence of acid, so long as the milk is not too sour, does not have a serious effect upon the resulting cheese.

ARE YOU A HUSBAND-HELPER? [Newspaper Article] — Wedderburn Express and Korongshire Advertiser — 26 June 1914

ARE YOU A HU8BAND-HELPER7 The wise husband will tell eveiy thins to his wife. If she. be a sensll le Vv'oman. To such confidence most sic cessful men owe their prosperity. To' the hints and suggestions given by good .wives often are due the triumplip which the public attribute solely to the man. A woman's instincts are very alert, and she is swift to see break ers, rocks, or shoals. Many a man has lived to regret that he did not heed his wife's warning. ; So, too, when a wife tells'her hus band to beware of 'such and such a person, he will be a fool if he does ?jot pay attention to her admonition. Tims far we have spoken of tlm lensible wife, but there are other kinda to whom it would not be safe to en trust either great or little secrets. Every woman has it in her own choice whether she will be. her hus band's helpers or his greatest hin drance. The pity of it is that so many women fail to realise this.
