In centrifugal machines for separating cream from milk.it is desirable, in order to prevent rre-minglteg, 1» arrange the supply of the unseparated milk in such a manner ' that It oeed hot pass the cream layer. To attain this object, amongst other devJcesTdlscs have been used, having a series of rows of holes arranged between ' the outer and the Inner edge, the unseparated milk being fed into the spaces between the discs the liner through these holes.' It is usual to let the milk run into a recep tacle in the bottom part of the bawl and Sow -out through holes arranged In this corresponding to the holes in the disc T3hls arrangement is very suitable in cer tain cases, but has the disadvantage that the bottom of the bowl cannot be car ried, up into the bowl, as Is usual, in order to permit the top bearing being lifted up, whereby, space is saved and a steadier running of the bowl is at tained.

THE BEEKEEPER : XHPOBTAHOE OF POHEH. .Pollen is not always valued by bee-: keepers as it should be (states an American beekeeper). It Is, he con tinues, sometimes a great nuisance and { may be the cause of direct loss.

Honey contains an ( Insufficient amount ot this important j element for the bees' needs. As the little ; winged chemists cannot grind seeds' , containing nitrogen, as Is done by ' human beings, nature, or more cor rectiy, providence, has so ordered things that they can secure it, In the form of pollen from plants from which they gather nectar.
