Michigan Oleomargarine Law [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898
Michigan Oleomargarine Law THE fellowing , taken from a . communication to the Chicago Record from Lansing , Michigan , will be of interest to those who are working for pure-food laws and their enforcement : Last April the case « f the people vs . Frank J . Dettenthaler was submitted to the court . Dettenthaler was convicted of violating the law enacted by the last legslature prohibiting the sale of oleomargarine colored to resemble . butter . Numerous other prosecutions were made under this law , and still others are being held awaiting the opinion of the court as to its legality . In a unanimous opinion written by Justice Hooker the court holds the law to be invalid . The merits of the law are not discussed in the opinion , the court simply holding that the law is defective inasmuch as the legislative journals show that it was without an enacting clause when it passed the senate , and that the house failed to -remedy this defect . This-clause was inserted previous to the signing o...
Churning [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898
Churning By Emma Olearwaters . H AVE just taken out of the ehurn a nice batch of gilt-edge butter , and although we use milk from but one cow , she is due , to be fresh the 12 th of December , we get just such butter at every churning , and . churn three times each week . Themilk stood twenty-four , hours , then the cream was taken off and put in the cream jar . Each time cream was . added to the jar the . whole was thoroughly stirred . When the churning was in the jar a half teacupful of sour milk and a teaspoonful of salt was stirred in , the whole set in a warm place eighteen hours to open . The churn waa scalded with boiling water , the cream poured -in . and after churning until the cream looked buttery , which was not more than ten minutes , the sides of the churn , and the lids were rinsed with warm water . The instant the butter formed the milk was let run off , the butter washed in cold water until the water ceased to be milky , the water then let off and salt in the propor...
^ w Dirt in Milk [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898
^ w Dirt in Milk By D . H . Otis . THE Kansas State Agricultural College dairy secured , samples- of milk . from oersons-engaged more or less ln the dairy business , and placed these in long , narrow glass tubes . After standing for several . hours these tub es .-were examined and notes taken on the amount of dirt that settled to . the bottom . Considerable difference was found , some samples being almost free from visible dirt , while others had so much that it formed an irregular ring along the lower edge of the tube . While this test , is a good 1 one .-to detect solid particles of dirt in the milk , it is by no means conclusive , as-wiere milk is handled in an uncleanly manner more or less dirt becomes dissolved in the milk and cannot be separated . out . This illustrates the Importance of the utmost cleanliness in handling milk . We object strongly to milk being adulterated with water , but this is not to be compared with adulterating it with dirt

Timely-Topics [Newspaper Article] — National Rural and Family Magazine — 22 December 1898
Timely-Topics , Trade and Prices AS forecast in these columns last week , tlie . prices of wheat and corn have both advanced . The average price of red winter wheat for the week ending December 17 , as shown by our index table , stands at 6 , 508 as against 6 , 417 for the previous week ; and the price of corn 3 , 350 as against 3 , 335 fo * the previous week .

Argentina , Australia and India comes in , - when , with the present good crop outlook , there is reason to believe that lower prices . will prevail . The general average of prices of the twenty staple farm products comprising our index table show a substantial gain over , the week previous , being , 7 , 527 as against 7 , 379 for tbe previous week , and 7 , 415 the ...

DOMESTIC AFFAIRS Edited by Mrs . Bertha Caswell Norton Homes of / Our Poets C ONTINUING our series of Illustrationsof the Homes of Our Poets , we this week give Lowell s home , and his study , at Cambridge , Mass . James Russell Lowell , youngest son of Rev . Ohas . Lowell , was born in Cambridge , Mass ., February 2 , 1819 ; died there Aug . 12 , 1891 . His father , Rev , Dr . Chas . Lowell , was a typical early New England divine . His mother was a woman of sensitive and poetic nature and imaginative power . One that was curious . • in tracing heredity would perhaps ascribe Lowell s poetic gift to the strain of romance in his mother , as she came from a family in Orkney , with the wild picturesqueness of its life in her temperament . Elmwood , the home of Lowell at Cambridge , is a pleasant , unpretentious house , with elms in front , looking over the east side of Mt . Auburn cemetery at the rear . Two drawing-rooms are on one side , of the hall , with doorways on either side the ...
