the State in the meeting of the Ore

in this city on January 17th and 18th.
Upon several different occasions
there were between 600 and TOO peope
in attendance upon the Dairy Conven
tion and exhibit at one time, and from
the moment that President Judd called
the meeting to order at 10 o'clock,
Thursday morning until it closed at
6 o'clock Friday afternoon, the inter
eat never flagged. Hon. B. D. White,
the dairy expert with the Department
of Agriculture at Washington, D. C,
who has participated in dairy; conven
tiona in all of the older states, said
that be had never attended a better
convention. The program was full of
interest it was a school of informs
tion and instruction, and facts were
presented and views exchanged and
actual results shown, which will be
of tremendous value to all those en
gaged in the industry or contemplat
ing a participation in it. The sub
stantial character of the gathering
was shown when the chair requested
those actually milking cows com
merclally to stand 75 per cent of the
audience rose, and when a vote was
asked to show what proportion of
these were testings milk with the
idea of keeping their herds up to tbe
highest standard, at least three
fourths of the milkers rose a second

The exhibits were magnificent,
equaling those at the international
show. The whole state was repre

mendous success, and tbe men Inter

that the products of thit great indus
try will add at least $30,000,000 to

people personally paid their dues
while in attendance, the greatest pre
