To churn at OS <legMj£cs, the churn must bo at about that temperature when the cream is put in. In nenrly every case the temperature rises ufter clmrninpr for some time, due to friction. The larger the churn or the smaller t,he amount of cream to bo churned, the more quickly will the clmming be finished.

As to the ripeness of the cream, by raising the temperature a few degrees sweet cream may bo churned in about the Bamo time as ripe or sour cream. Tho loss of butter will be considerable, as sweot cream to be effectually churned •requires a temperature of from 50 to 55 degrees and one to one and a half hours to churn.

[Special B»rlin (Gerrnnny) Letter.] Berlin isn't Paris, and there never was any Jardin Mabille nor any Clos- erie des Lilas there, but in point of dancing:, I think, the German capital beats the French. This year's ball season especially, short though it was, brought an immense number of terpsichorean dissipations, and among them there were a tow that deserve some mention. There is an ancient law on the statute books in Prussia, dating- from the timo when actors and opera singers were strolling about the country and, by dint of "one-night stands," eking oui EXTRAXCE TO ALPI2TE CLUB r/,U/T<. omprchtmfflvo, beautiful — nt an/ ,or 're«, or by mail lor two^oonbitampn.

Tho water runs into tho tub from tho spring as fast as it is taken out. The "tub may be set in a dry spot as far from tho spring as ia desired, but it must be on a level with tho spring. The most satisfactory plan is to set tho tub partly in tho gronnd and bank it up well around tho tub and over the pipe conducting water from tho spring. Tho spring should be covered to preserve warmth in winter and for coolness during summer. — T. Parks, in Farm and Home. Kcepicsr Fruit Treen Dormant. The uses of "cold storage" in keeping taeate, fruit and vegetables in an unchanged condition are well known but tho modification of this process called "cool storage," as applied to trees, etc., is more novel. It ia such an arrangement of packinghouse and cellar that all extremes of temperature are avoided and a medium preserved in whieli nursery trees will remain dormant for any length of time. A western nursery firm last fall had trees in its packing houses which had been there twelve months and were in perfect condition. Apparently they could be kept through the winter in the same conditions and be ready to grow when planted out. Vt'c do not know that the length of time trees couid be thus kept has ever been tested.— Country Gentleman. a miserable and precarious livelihood. Tin's law classifies stage folk with domestic servants, with the "Gesinde," and even vouchsafes to their boss, the owner of the theater or chief of the troop, tho right of "manual correction," i. e. of slapping the members in tho face and administering other mild forms of personal chastisement. Well, about last New Year the president of the police in Berlin, Baron von Richthofen, finding that a provincial court In n. suit against a theatrical manager had resuscitated this old law and applied to it the case in hand, issued a ukase calling public attention to tho fact that actors and actresses, from the prima 'donna to tho weazened old in- triguante, were "Gesinde"and, as such, amenable to the rules and regulations in sucJi case made and provided. The press ridiculed the order; the "profesh" first laughed at it, then waxed wrathy and held indignation meetings; the public wondered, smiled and said nothing. The order was not rescinded. It remains nominally in force to-day, although, in "innocuous desuetude," I suspect. Recently the whole theatrical profession in Berlin gave a ball at the Kaiser- hof, the most aristocratic hotel in town, which thej' styled "Gesinde ball," and at which everybody present appeared in the costume of a member of the servant class. It bad been arranged by half n, dozen of the daintiest and most popular actresses, including Reisen- hofer, Jenny Gross>and Else Lehmann, and it was a stunning success. Satirically, humorously nnd by the law of contrast the hundreds of jolly Thespian disciples demonstrated that it is folly to class them in the year 1S95 with the kitehen maid or -the valet. The critics of Berlin were present, of course, and a score of the most popular writers, such as Stindo and Blumenthal and Ludermann, and a few airy literary trifles, written for the occasion, were performed. But the chief joke of the evening was, of course, the costuming. The very flower of tho profession, both male and female, disported themselves clad as nurses and cooks, chambermaids and body servants, coachmen and footmen and ushers, porters and butlers, and imagination had lent them wings for devising new classes of domestic led Andreas Uofer and his Tyroleans into battle against the French in 1SOO; and everybody was an Alpine boy or lass for the time bein 2%. The costumes worn by the participants were genuine, as most of those present were members of the Alpine club and had used those same "duds" before in climbing steep paths high up in the Bavarian or Tyrolese mountains during recent summers, and enough of the natives had been imported from their far-away homes to complete the illusion. There were a band of yodlcrs. a number of zither players, a half dozen of expert dancers of the "Schuhplattl," and a whole score of villagers from the Vintschgau in the Tyrol to perform the famous "Bandel" dance around the May pole. The wine rooms and beer cellars were fitted up to match, and once past the grim barrier at the enu-anee gate, where Austrian revenue officers sat and collected tribute, the visitor was not in Berlin, but in some Alpine village, high up and away from the busy world. To talk of the subscription ball at the Royal opera house at this late day seems superfluous, for this most resplendent and aristocratic of all private balls given occurs regularly once every year during tho carnival time. Suffice it to say that it was more brilliant and glorious of diamonds, colors and handsome women and stately men than ever, and the emperor strolling up and down among the immense crowd for upward of an hour, with his train of glittering aides and flashing cuirassiers, added not immaterially to the picture. For it was a picture—not a bull. Although the space given up was that of the whole opera house, holding many thon- sands, and although tho price of admission is purposely fixed rather high, the pressure was so enormous as to make dancing quite impossible. From this ball to those which, just t now, engage the special attention of the'police, is quite a step, but it has to be made in order to complete the survey. There are, it is true, a large number of decent and respectable public ballrooms in Berlin, like the Artushof, where the girls or wives of the small middle classes, the mechanics and tho shopkeepers, now nnd then have a hop with their husbands, sweethearts and relatives, where clubs or societies meet and have a good time in a slow, old- fashioned way. There are cheaper places, still well-behaved enough, where the large array of servant girls and cooks, of coachmen and gardeners, meet and dance, where young soldiers and old soldiers show themselves in all their martial splendor with their best girls. But these places have not been interfered with by the police. Tho category which, of late, has been put under police surveillance and of which some at least have been suppressed and others restricted, is the one where vice CASTOR IA for Infants and Children.

The best remedy known for garden slugs is freshly slacked li rue scattered over them while feeding during the morning or evening, we would state for the benefit of a subscriber. If two applications are not effectual, the dusting should be repeated at short intervals. The slug has the ability of throwing off its slimy coating and with it whatever obnoxious substance has been applied to it; but if the ap- -ilicatious fire quickly repeated—from its diminished power of secreting a new coating of slimo, the lime of other substances takes effect upon the skin und kills the shitr. What Qo<>cn Victoria Said- An amusing example of Queen Victoria's precocious xvit is going the rounds of the English press. \Yhile but a mero child she used to delight George IV. -by her quaint remarks. One day when staying at the royal lodge the king entered the drawing- room leading his little niece by the hand. The band was stationed as usual in the adjoining conservatory. "Now, Victoria," said his majesty, "the band is in the next room and shall play any tune you please; what shall it be?" "O, uncle," replied the princess, with great readiness, "I should like 'God Save the King' better than anything else." 'The little princess at that time, it must be remembered, was but onoi removed in the line of succession. in its most alluring garb has been stalking rampant for months and years. The Blumensale (flower halls) is a good specimen of this latter kind. It was a month ago that a sedate old aristocrat, member of the reichstag and owner of large estates in .'the eastern provinces of the monarchy, one evening after a fine dinner at Drcssel's allowed himself to be lured to this place by a couple of gay young diplomats who had shared the meal with hfm. Next morning the old 'gentleman was dead, and the last penny of a large sum he had had upon him was gone. There had been an orgy in one of the boxes, and a couple of the handsomest members of the demi-monde were arrested, but soon let go for want of proof. This in cident in metropolitan life, an inciden whic.h had often occurred before, in duced the police to subject those Blum- ensale and similar establishments to a more rigorous supervision. At present they are forced to close at 2 a, 7u,, and, since the regular customers of these places, both men and women, as a rule, only begin to show up at midnight, this "early-closing order" means the financial ruin of the owners unless it be rescinded before long. The Blum- ensale are the acme of material elegance, and none but persons in full ball costume are allowed on the floor, while nothing but champagne at six dollars a bottle is served by the waiters. In point of dash and "go," however, they do not equal similar establishments in Paris. WOLF VON SCHIKRBRAXD. Jetins explained tills wir.n .111 mustra— trations (here reproduced in smaller- size).

The fact that some 20,000 marks were added to the pension fund for superannuated actors shows that, financially as well, the affair was a success. Another very odd and original ball occurred on the selfsame night. It was given by the Berlin section of the Austxo-German Alpine club at the Philharmonic building, and of its kind it was, perhaps, even more enjoyable. The whole interior of the huge building had been transformed into a bit of Alpine country. The immense ballroom (where on other nights the finest concerts in the capital are performed) had been changed into a landscape near Meran, Tyrol, and ths festival celebrated there was a counterfeit of that of the vintners of grape-buried Meran, with gayly-decorated village streets on the main floor, and glinting glaciers in the background.

Cincinnati Branch, Seventh and Freeman Avenue, Cincinnati A Method Which In Uoanonaljlj" Sure Co lirlnc Good Keiulti, In planting strawberries there is a right way, and there are a number of •wrong ways. What we are after in ordinary culture is to induce a reasonable number of plants to make an carJy start, in other words, to have them ic- pood prowinpr condition before our usual midsummer drought, so they will five us a nice matted row. Wo find that the earlier we plant after tho land is in readiness to receive the plants, the more surely do we reach tho coveted result. Usually we can get better plants in the early part of the season than will be obtainable later. Atmospheric and soil conditions also are more favorable then. The plants start promptly, and soon fill the rows with strong runners. The right way of planting always presupposes the use of good strong plants. Some of our nurserymem are not careful. enough in the sorting of the plants they ship, and only too often hare we received strawberry plants that were utterly unfit for planting.

Some encircle a brand* of the post by twining their main bodies around the support. A hop vine is a familiar illustration of this. Slor» delicate ones cannot twist around their stakes, but have to have string- or sim« ilar material to cling to. The ordinary morning glory is an illustra^on of this, class; but there are some which simply climb by twisting the leaf stalk around! the support. This is especially true o£ different kinds of clematises, yet it is- not unusual in some gardens to see- stacks as thick as walking canes put for the clematis to run up on; but, as it is unable to do this, they have to be tied to this pole by twine, while tho- leaves go on twisting Themselves in order to find something to cling to, and as a consequence the vital power* of the plant aro exhausted. In many cases the clematis, especially the variety known as Jackmanni, wUl die completely and suddenly from the attack of a minute fungns; but it is more likely that this occurs oftener in cases as described—for want of proper means of support. Thread or twine for the- leaves to twist around, or even a littlo brushwood, such as we would trive to a j crop of peas, is much more likely to produce healthy and v/g-orous clematises than when they are deprived of all means of usin;r their leaf stalks a» tunilrils.—ileehan's 31 oath]v- Careless.
