Glass milk pans are coming into use in England, and are there considered much preferable to any others. If the milk becomes acid in a wooden pan, the wood absorbs a portion of the acid, and must, in some degree, affect the fresh milk the followiing day. In an earthen or tin pan, any acidity in the milk, will act upon the lead with which these articles are covered, and the milk will be in some degree injuriously affected. The glass pan is entirely exempt from any of these effects, and hence its value. This subject is well worth the attention of both our farmers and glass manufacturers.
