The American Orocer says it is a lamentable fact that few have the proper facilities for keeping butter at any season of the year, and fewer sfcill know how to properly make and pack it for long keeping. A very small percentage of the butter that reaches the principal markets is strictly fine ; and much of it that is stale and unmarketable would have brought a fair price had it been marketed when new. This almost inevitable and rapid deterioration of butter is a strong argument against its retention by the producer, in the hope of higher figures, when remunerative ones are at once within his reach.
