will guarantee bjm the milk from 2U0

he has had experience hi tuq business
and is confident It can be innde a sue-
cess. We (should oe iileasett to sec a
creamery established here. It would
not ouly fill n long felt want in sup
plying the city with fresh butter, but
would also givq-many fanners ready
sale for their surplus milk. We should
