CREAMERY TO START

At the Creamery meeting last Sat
arday afternoon the general sentiment
was in favor of starting the factory as
soon as the services of a butter maker
could be secured. A large amount of
the stock was represented at this
meeting and all seemed very eager to
have the factory In operation.
The Lexington creamery was built
last year at an expense of $4500. but
owing to conditions existing at that
time, it was not considered advisable
to start then. Conditions have chang
ed, everything is favorable, and there
is every indication of this plant being
well patronized and a money distribut
er for its patrons. A number of the
prominent farmers have said that if
the creamery starts they would invest
in some good cream producing covs
and patronize the factory.
A meeting of the directors followed
the stockholders meeting at which
Eph Eskelson was elected to fill the
vacancy caused by Wm. Padberg dis
posing of his stock. The directors
decided to have the factory in opera
tion by April 20th if a butter maker
could be secured by that time.
