Cocoanut Buttek —A great deal has been written of late concerning the cocoanut butter, which 'it ia argued is going to revo. iutionise the butter markets of the world. His Worship the Mayor (Mr G. .Armstrong) brought back a sample of this butter from Wellington on Wednesday. The coeoanut batter looks and tastes for all the world like oandle grease. It is tastless, but melts readily in the mouth. It is, of course, too bard to use for ppreading on bread unless purtly melted, but it is used extensively in cooking. It does not seem possible that oocoanut butter will replace the dairy article for many years to come, unless, of course, ingredients are added that will transform it. As a cooking artiole, however, it will hold an important position in the market.
Maudie pouted much at Bertie, To his great surprise ; P'raps she'd heard of hima and Girth Swapping gladsome eyes. But the thing that did upset her Made her glum and dour Was that Bert had dared forgot her Woods' Great Peppermint Cure
