WHAT IT MEANT. A rather fussy and consequential diplomatist called the other day on a bluff admiral belonging to the U.S. Navyand left his card. The card was inscribed in the corner with the let ters "E.P." "I hope you got my card," said the diplomatist when, not long after, ihe met the admiral. "Oh, yes, I got it all right," was the reply. "But, by the way, what was tile meaning of the 'b.P.' on it, sir ?". "Wily, enl pIersonne, of course," ex claimed the diplomatist. "Perhaps you did not know I left it in per son ?" "Oh, I see," responded the admiral with a suspicious twinkle. - In a short time the .diplomatist re ceived the admiral's card, hbearing the puzzling letters "8.B.N.," which sue cossfully baffled every attempt at so lution. On the next occasion that the nonplussed diplomatist met the ad miral he, in turn, nasked for an ex planation. "'Sent by nigger,' " was tle il laminating reply.

WHAT IS CASEIN? ITS PRODUCTION, USES AND VALUE. In a few words, casein is a by-pro duct, being manufactured from the sweet skim milk after the fat has been extracted by the separator. The procedure briefly explained is as fol lows :-The skim milk as it leaves the separator is run into a vat holding from 500 to 1000 gallons, and it is then heated to 130 degrees Fahr., when it is precipitated with culture made from lactic acid. When-coagu lation has taken place-as in cheese making - the whey is drawn off, and the residue is the curd fromn skim milk, technically known as casein. The agents used for precipitation can either be rennet, acetic acid, lac tic acid, or, according to latest Amer ican methods diluted sulphuric acid. The casein after being pressed and dried In a properly constructed dry ing-room, is put into 1001b. bags and exported to Germpny and France, where factories for the further maunl pulation of the raw product have been in existence for several years.
