SUNDAY, MAY 27,1862 .-., ,: ; LG&1U.!. THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORt PRESS, LOGANSPORT, INDIANA PAGE THREE This We were.a little surprised the! other day to note that the Saturday Evening Post was catching up with this column. On page 24 of their issue of May 26-there is a picture of a .dash churn, the kind we've 'been talking about for the last week or two. And it's a Hoosier churn, too. Moreover, sitting ' close to this Hoosier dash churn, with bright brass hoops, is a pretty Hoosier girl; Miss Linda • Markins, wearing a checkered gingham dress that, according to the story, she made herself. Miss Markins, 21 year old, lives in Gaston, a small town in Delaware county ten or fifteen miles northwest of Muncie. She is a junior in Purdue, engaged in some special kind of Home Economic or 4-H work that has attracted the editors of the Post. What attracted our attention was the picture of the churn, appearing, as it did, as this column is devoting time and space to the old- time art of country butter-making. Butter-making, churning,; etc., has been getting considerable attention from readers of the column during the last week or two. Several readers have shown interest in our efforts. to mold imitation rolls of butter, using paraffin instead of butter. Several have called to tell us that they have used yellow wax crayons to procure the exact tint they wanted. We even had a card, from Mrs. Estal Mullins, of Delphi, telling us that was what she had used. However, we had secured a very satistactory shade by the use of a light yellow oil paint, lightened 'by the liberal use of white paint. We had secured this result by a trial -and error method before we heard from our friends. We deeply appreciate the thoughtfulness that prompted their actions. Readers may recall that we quoted' our friend, Mrs. Sarah McDowell, who said that She was hungry for some of that old- fashioned country butter. A day or two after that item appeared som; body, we've forgotten who, exceptsthat it was a man, called up and said when he felt that hunger, .he got a quart Of cream, he didn't say where-poured it into a bowl, and made butter by the use of an egg-beater. Last week we mentioned that to a friend, Ed Malone, who told us that, during the last war, when butter was rationed, and difficult to get, he did the same thing, 1 regularly. We've since heard of others who use electric mixers for the same purpose. Is that practice common? Miss Amelia Haife,' retired school teacher, who puts in her time pursuing her hotoby.-the making olf miniature furniture,came to the Museum the other day with a miniature butter-mold, too small to used as a thimble. (The average "life size" mqW measures something like four inches across.) Miss Hartz 'had "cast" a roll of butter, using paraffin, as the writer has tried to do; the tiny pat was no bigger than a garden pea, and a mighty small pea, at that. A day or so later she brought in a churn, the dash kind, which she had made in her basement shop. It is only about three inches tall. It is complete in every particular. Alvin Crowe, who made the Museum a present of a butter- mold a week or two ago, brought in a couple of other presents last week. One was a paddle, used to work the liquid residue from the butter after it has formed; the other is a wooden spoon, something over a fool long, which his mother has used many times for stirring the good things that mothers make for their families.

We lever saw Mr. Crowe,- he brought '.hese articles to the Museum in our "absence-so he ' couldn't have told us. We also .know that his mother was right-handed. ' There is a worn spot on the end of that spoon that could, have been worn in that place only by a right-handed person.. We pictured in our mind the patient wife, as she stood-or probably stooped-before the spit, on which hung the brass kettle in which 'bubbled a couple of gallons of apple 'butter, which she -constantly stirred to keep it from burning. To make sure that she was reaching the bottom of the. kettle she kept scraping the spoon' against the metal. Hence the worn spot. . .,. . We're planning to displary ;our butter-making equipment" on .the first Sunday in -July, which will be the 1st. We'll be telling about it later.
