association .should meet in Ilills
boro, where is found the center
of (lit greatest dairy county in
all the I'aeitie Northwest. We
will be able to show them a con
denser that has cost over a quar
ter of a million, and if built to
day would cost nearer a million
we will show them a stream of
milk wagons that will make their
cyo stiek out, ami, besides, we
will show them that Ilillsboro
knows how to entertain them. If

experienced anything like the
time he was here at a state meet

Come on. boys, the county that
