LOGANSPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY SUNDAY, JUNE 24,19G2 THE PHABOS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS. LOGANSPORT. INDIANA PAGE THREE This Changing World (By Will Ball, Cass County Historical Society President) PART 714 We're still hearing from the rose bead project. We had a letter last week from a lady,—judging by the handwriting, but with no signature,—which enclosed a recipe for making such beads that was exactly the same as we printed last Sunday. Incidentally, the lady who started all this about rose beads reported that she had splendid success with the lot she made; that the beads- were hardening nicely, and that they had retained their characteristic rose • odor. She reported that the black paste, which, evidently, gets its color from the chemical reaction between the rose petals and the iron container in which the ground petals are kept while undergoing the process of manufacture, this black, dough has a tendency to stain the hands when the beads are formed by rolling balls of the stuff between the palms; it is extremely diffi cult to get the hands clean after rolling the beads into form. She reports that she is still unable to find the gold beads she needs to string between the black rose beads. The beads we have in the Museum have no odor. They have been here an unknown length of time; it is unlikely that any aroma remaining after the beads have hardened will disappear after the lapse of any considerable period to time. The anonymous corresponded who sent the recipe for rose beads added a foot-note about butler- color. She says that they used an article sold under the brand name of "Dandelion" which they us« when the butter was too light in color, presumably in the winter months when the cows had no green grass on which to graze. We tried that when we first at tempted to obtain a realistic but ter color in paraffin. There must be a chemical reac (ion between the coloring matter and the cream that is absent when the same coloring matter is add ed to hot paraffin, as the result ing tint is entirely too red. We appreciate the lady's thought fulness, but will have to stick to oil colors, we fear. This lady had a comment abou the old-time dasher chums, which she said, she had used many time. She quoted a story she ha< heard her grandmother tell: A peddler stopped at the granc mother's home one day when sh was churning, and the butter wouldn't "come". Noting the difficulty, the peddler offered to sell he frustrated lady a "method",' #hich, he said, would ensure results. He would write the "method" on a slip of paper, • which wasn't to be read until after he uid gone. Willing to try almost anything ,o get her churning done the lady ^aicl the peddler his price, and, after he had disappeared down the road, % opened and read the magic formula. Here is what she found: "Hickory, snickeiy, snackery, snum, how I wish my butter would come; Here I've churned until I'm sore; witches, away, and come no more," When the writer, as a small boy, used to operate one of those dash churns, and wish, oh, so ardently, that the butter would come, there were no thermometers, or hydrometers, or other instruments that the dairy industry uses today to learn why the butter doesn't come, or to correct the trouble and make it come. As we've told before, we have in the Museum some of those dasher churns, both wooden anc crockery, also a couple of barrel churns. We expect to have them on dis- play next Sunday, which is Open louse, and for the rest of the month of July. The picture ait the head of the column today is of a barrel churn of a different kind. The churn tself, shown slightly tilted, is at he right; the apparatus at the eft, with the horizontal slats, is a treadmill, which was operated )y a large dog, such as a collie or German shpherd. The tread portion, shown' level in the picture, changed to a 45 degree slant when the dog entered, and it had to keep walking to avoid falling out. As it walkec the churn revolved, thus churn ing the butter. Did the dog ever wonder why the butter didn't come? This picture was made in Pon tiac, Illinois, at an antique show by Walter Fair, of New Waverly who loaned it for our use.
