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 wo or three times every da for three weeks. After it has settled for two days, the liquor is to be decanted. The same ingredients will impregnate a like quantity of water, two or three times, to an equaldegree 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-dith altogether, and place it in a fieve 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 occasion 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 four put half that weight of potatoes. Let the potatoes be well boiled, peeled, and mashed ; mix them up with flour, 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 season, 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 falt-perre : put your cream upon it daily, as it is skimmed 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 falt-petre, A piece the size of a nutmeg, is sufficient for a quantity of cream that will produce fix pounds of butter : and so in proportion for a larger or smaller quantity
