A METHOD TO PREPARE A SULPHUREOUS MINERAL

WATER.

GRIND four drachms of the flowers of sulphur with an equal quantity of magnesia, in a glass mortar. Work up the mass gradually with water, to the amount of a quart, and then pour the liquid mixture into a close vessel, which may be conveniently shaken two or three times every day for three weeks. After it has settled for two days, the liquor is to be decanted. The same ingredients will impregnate a like quactity of water, two or three times, to an equal degree of strength. One ounce of this solution, diluted with a quart of pure water, forms a medicine fit for use. It is an effectual remedy for the chronic rheumatism, and cutaneous disorders ; it is also useful for the scrofula and

worms.

RECEIPT FOR MAKING STILTON CHEESE.

TAKE the night's cream, and put it to the morning's new milk, with the rennet ; when the curd is come, it is not to be broke, as is done with other cheeses; but take it out with a foil-dish altogether, and place it in a sieve to drain gradually; and, as it drains, keep graudually pressing it till it becomes firm and dry ; then place it in a wooden hoop ; afterward to be kept dry on boards, turned frequently, with cloth binders round it, which are to be tighted as occafion requires.

FOR MAKING POTATOE BREAD.

THE following method of making potatoe bread has been laid before the Bath Agricultural Society, of which a specimen was produced, and met with general approbation : "To any given weight of flour put half that weight of potatoes. Let the potatoes be well boiled, peeled, and mashed ; mix them up with four, while warm ; then add the yeast, and proceed as in the common method of making bread : observing to make the bread as dry as possible.”

RECEIPT FOR SWEETENING BUTTER.

AS butter is very apt to be tinctured with a turpip taste at this feason, when cattle is much fed on that root, the following method to sweeten it, may be acceptable to country readers,

“ Put into your cream-pot, a piece of salt.petre : put your cream upon it daily, as it is likimmed off your milk, and stir it up as usual. Every time you clean out your cream-pot, to churn, supply it with the like quantity of salt-petre, A piece the size of a nutmeg, is sufficient for a quantity of cream that will produce six pounds of butter : and fo in proportion for a larger or smaller

quantity.
