TENTHI ANNUAL CONVE+.NTION holes (levelope, and the only method of judging to what cxtCn1t these are growinr is by tapping the cheese andl noticing. the solidity or tho spongeness of each ch2ese as ilhdicate(l by the sound. When sufficiently ripeined, the cheeses are taken from the watrm room an(l place(l in a cold room having a tem- perature of about 45 degrees P., where they are kept un- til sold. While in the warmi room the cheese puffs up soiiewliat, and afterwards come down to normal shape When in tIle cold room. This curing- of the cheese at different temperatures is conlsi(ere(d very important. an(l the cheese cellars at facto- ries as well as at the provi(le(l with three curingo roonis; the wa riu roomi being heated by hot water pil)es onl which (lanj) clothes are placed to supply the required moisture to the air. IMPORTANT OBSERVATIONS. [rhe two points that seem to require the most skill of the cheesemaker are first the preparation of the rennet for coagrulating the milk in the kettle, all(n second (letermining wleil the cheese should be taken out of the warm curin, room, The other parts of the process of cheesemaking a C more or less ineclanical, and(l do not re(quire so much good ju(lgment in order to inake a gFood quality of cheese. BUTTER MADE FROM WHEY. Whey butter of an excellent quality is ma(le by skim- ming1t1r the whey withl a separator and ripening and churn- ;11g the cream in the usual war. A series of exl)erinlents were made (luringr the past year in which the 'separator" process and the "boiling" rocess of skimming the whev were compared. The (if- furence in the yield of butter was not great; the amount of separator whet butter being 0.57 lbs. per 100 Ibs. whey, an(l (of boiled whev butter .55 to .50 lbs. per 100 lbs. whey. The quality of the fresh separator butter was (lecidedly better than that of thte whey butter; the former, however did not retain its goo(l flavor but a few days, and in this particular was not equa; to the latter.
