In connection with the investigations in the chemical laboratory of the experiment station of problems connected with the amount of water present in butter, analyses were made of two samples of butter which appeared to contain a very large amount of water. The water present was apparently in large proportions and this condition gave a reason for the request for the analyses. In the attempt to mix the product in order to get an average sample it was found that the water readily separated from the other constituents, and on analysis of the product the following results were obtained.
