nro receiving KatlHfartory prlcea for
tholr cream, otherwise they would
keep It on the farm and make butter
at home. Why la this necessary?
Why not a creamery at homo where
at least the net prlco ahould be ua
high aa aendlng It to an outside
iTt'iuiK-ry. In fact It should command
a higher price, becnuae It cortiilnly

A creamery wna discussed hero two
or three years ago and It wan then
considered feaalblo by men who In
instigated, the matter wan tiiriied
over to Home farmers and dairy peo
ple or thla vicinity but th'-y fulled 1
to get results. Why? Some mild'
t hurt was not a aiilllelnnt number of
dairy cow owners ready to algu ut
to furnish milk: another excuse ad
vanced was that the Htock muii of
the community had gotten the habit
of having their cows freshen the'
Hiring and that by whiter time they
i!td not give sultluluiit milk to Justify

Ilusliiess men of Iltinirt offered to
I rulah the capital to finance a
.eamery but thla waa turned down
by Rome on thu ground that In order
to bo u success tho stock of thu con
cern should bo -hold by tho produc
ers na thus thoy would feel obligated
to furnlHh tho cream In tho fuce of
advanced prices that might bo offered
by big corporations outside for tho
purpose of crippling tho local concern
aa had beea done In the past at other
placoa. However it was, thu venture
died before It hnd a good Htart.
With the moro favorable weather
condition evidenced during this
string the active work on the Irri
tation project, the establishment of
a ello iumI the further stimulus giv

lug by the employment of a county
sgrlcultural agent and his active
work in organizing the Fnrm Huron n

y proper time to again take up the
propos'tlon of i cooperative cream
ery. The question of financing it need
not enter into the problem provided
it can be ahown there ere a sulllcieut
number of cows pledged for a definite
time to furnish tho cream.
Let's get out of the habit of sond
