the last issue of. the ft ilHIMll that
the butter product of this, creamery re

the excellent reputation already es

long is none other than Richard W iUet,
who whileconuected with this creatuery
carried.oC Uie I ugl iest honors for the
excellence of his butter product at the
Kugene Disttict Fair last Fall. Mr.
Willet and family arrived at this place
something over a year ago from the
great dairy and creamery state of Minne
sota, and accepted the position of butter-
maker in the Rosebnrf creamery", a posi
tion he has most acceptably tilled since
that time. He' fs'a graduate of the
dairy school alid has received many high
ilass diplomas and certificates In both
cheese and butter manufacturing, which
the writer bad the pleasure of examin
ing. His wife is also the proud posses
sor of a beautiful' and appropriately in
scribed gold walch which was -awarded
her husband as a prize in a Minnesota
butter making contest by a large cream-
ery association of that state. Mr. Wil
' let has been engaged in the creamery
business for twenty-two years, and has a
