to bring a premium.

An important feature of tbe pro
eram will be tbe demonstrations of
butter-making processes by which it
is hoped to bring about tbe desired
commercial utility of Oregon butter.
According to Mr. Freyart, butter is
already being produced in this state
at less cost than in the east and mid
dle west, and should shortly become
an export of great economic value.
"Butter is being sold in New York'
City for 10 cents ami a, jwtna tfcaaf; -it'
brines on the market here," he said
yesterday. "The cost of shipping but-,
ter for tbe Xew York market is only
three and a half cents a pound. But
it cannot be collected into carload lota
and shipped with any advantage, be-.
cause of the lack of uniformity in
composition, salting and packing. To.
make butter a product for the east
ern market, its manufacture must be
standardized in alj of these respeeta,
This is what we bops to encourage
