A barefooted and bare-headed little
boy, not more than six or seven years
of age, came to the city presumably
on the train from Astoria last even
ing, and soon wandered up towards
the center of the city. There, other
little boys saw him, and for them he
was great sport, for the town lads
probably saw nothing more in the
pitiful littie figure than a chance to
have some fun. They began to cnase
him and worry him.
Then it was that Constable jacK
Sayer saw the little stranger and took
him in tow, turning him over to one
of the police officers. At police
headquarters the little stranger
wouldn't talk, though he seemed in
telligent enough, and Chief Gammal
could find out nothing about the boy.
Hf is attired in a common woolen
blouse and jeans, with no stockings
or shoes. His hat probably hart been
lost. Chief Gammal had the little
fpllnw Heaned uo a bit and then took
him over to the Sisters at St. Mary's
hospital, where he -was .given kindly
attention and care. When he was
bv the police the boy
was dirty, just about as dirty as a
boy could well be who had ncen
playing by himself and the trip to this
city if he came from the beach
probably added more dirt to him. His
underwear was very clean. If the lad
hMnnffs here in Astoria his home is
likely to be in the outskirts, as no one

At the conclusion of a meeting of
representative farmers and dairymen
in the rooms of the Chamber of
Commerce yesterday afternoon it was
decided to incorporate an association
for the purpose of better handling
the milk supply, and with the ulti
mate purpose in view of making
cheese and condensed milk. There
fore it was agreed that such an in
corporation shall be formed under
the name of the Astoria Dairy Com
pany, with a capital stock of $10,000.

will not be the slightest difficulty in

is desired that it be taken m compara

ti, ontir nhiect of the dairy pro

eral way it was thoroughly agreed
that it should prove a nigniy pay-is

is the question of securing sufficient

ultimate object of the Astoria Dairy
Company, the association whicn is w
tnm, urill he to establish and
conduct a condensory, and meantime
the company will first go into me
business of distributing milk and
ako of makinsr cheese, to tne cuy
of Astoria the new project should
mean much, and the first inaicaiion
of its workings will be in tne at
tribution of the city's milk, Nearly
all of the milkmen are said to have
either gone into the matter or are ex
pected to do so. Their milk wilt
therefore be sent to the" company s
headquarters and will henceforth be
distributed by the company's wagons.
If all of the milk dealers go into the
company, as they are expected to,
that will mean that there will ccaso
to. be various competing milkmen
with their various routes. All of the
city's milk would come from the
company. The first thing uie com
pany proposes to do is to secure a
mctonrmncr nlant. so that all niilU
will be thoroughly sterilized before
being sold to the consumer, and mat
fact alone will probably tend to make
the company popular among the
housewives of the city.
Estimates made by Mr. Whyte,
who with Dr. Barr, has worked hard
on the matter for several weeks, go
to show that the visible supply of
'milk in the territory contiguous to
A.toria is about 41.000 pounds daily.
That takes in a pretty wide stretch of
country. It is further estimated mat
about 8000 or perhaps 10,000 pounds
arc daily used m supplying Astoria
with its daily portion of the lacteal
fluid, thus leaving approximately w.-
000 pound that could be used for the
cheese making or for the condensory.
The milk that is not sold in this city
daily is made either into cheese or
1 butter, and if the cjlimated 30,000
wounds now used for these purposes
could be secured for the company
there would be more than enough lor
the condensory. It is calculated,
however, that it would not pay the
condensory to operate unless it can
secure at least 15,000 or 20,000
pounds daily, and it is believed that
in a comparatively short time it wijl
hard task to secure that
much, and it may be readily possible
to secure all of the visible supply not
used for the city's daily needs. Of
course, if the dairymen find they are
making money out of the new plan,
they can readily increase the output,
las all can increase their herds on
