The" Echo du Monde Savant" says:—A farmer in the vicinity of Brussels having succeeded in removing the bad smell and taste of some butter by mixing it with chloride oi lime, he was encouraged by this experiment, and he has restored to butter the taste and odor of which were insupportable, all the sweetness of fresh butter. This operation is extremely simple and practicable by all. It consists simply in working the butter in a sufficient quantity of water, in which from 25 to 30 drops of chloride of lime have been adde-3 to every two pounds of butter. After ha\ mixed it till all its parts are in eomfacf 1 the water, it may be leit in it for an ' t two, afterwards withdrawn and Wor wg u in clear water. The chloride of 1 a h.\ 1 " nothing injurious in it, can with J# ; mented ; but after having \ar jwMStspi, ment, it was found that from '?*" t thirty drops to every two i % wttti Another methud of restoring s\ e ffifc* m flavoi to rancid better, said to be A . it L tual by those who have tried ll- i. jut it into a churn witnew mil' and -tit till alHthe old salt and rancidity is removed, alter which it is to be taken from the churn, worked and salted afresh. (The above should be tried jn a sr ill scale first. To multiply any number less than. 100 by 11—add the two figures composing the number together, place the sum between the-satfte two figures, if this sum be less than 10 ; if 10 or more than 10, add 1 to the left hand figure, and place the unit between the two figures so taken. Example :—44X11=484: the two fours being added make 8, which is the second figure. Thus multiplying by 11 may be as readily performed.in the mind, when the mul-tiplicand is less than 100, as multiplying by 10.
