The average quality of butter has
wonderfully improved, and the de
iiiiiixl is for the liest, and this demand
is unlimited and largely unsupplied.
The fact is right here in a nutshell,
thut any farmer who takes up dairying
for a business, and follows It Intelli
gently, using the best tools and im
plements for Ills work, will have a pro

Worth Twice an Much.
Separator butter is usually quoted
about twice the price of baud made
farm butter, from twenty to thirty
oeuts when the latter Is eight to
twelve cents, and the reason is that
anything that is done by machinery
is done regularly steadily : steam
doesn't get tired; it doesn't move fast
for awhile and then slow ; you can
regulate It : you can adjust It to ex
actly the same speed today as you did
yesterday, and the result is that the
machine will take the milk from two
to ten farms from a dozen or 200
cows, and turn the cream out even,
uniform, of the same grade and tem
perature, and yon cam do the same
thing tomorrow, and next day, and
the consequence is regularity; you
know what you are doing and can de
pend on your product, and know what
the price will be; and instead of
twenty farmers sending to the coun
try store twenty kinds, styles and
grades of butter, and none of them
as good as the evenly machine made,
there is one large lot of butter, of a
standard quality, neatly boxed and
labeled, shipped to the city market
and sold for cash. And it is in those
communities where the separator is
used that thrift and success prevail.
Iteason For Separator Creamery.
It takes from 10 to 25 per cent more
creum from milk than any other sys
It makes more butter from the same
amount of oream, as it churns more
completely and quicker.
It enables you to make 25 cent but
ter Instead of 10 to 12 cent button
It enables eight cows to make as
much butter as twelve would under
the old system.
It saves from 25 to 50 per oeut of
the labor In handling the milk.
It takes the great burden of caring
for the milk from the bouse,
You pay taxes on the farm, keep
fences In repair, keep borses and hir
ed help, movers, etc, to support the
cow you milk twice a day. Then af
ter all this expense and trouble, you
waste 25 per cent of the crebta. Do
you waste 25 per cent of the corn,
hay, wheat, etc:. Why then not save
all the cream f You cannot afford to
feed cream worth 20 oeuts a pound to
make 1-ceut pork or 3-cent veal, or
fertilize the ground with it. You
might as well throw away 25 per cent
of your cash, because oream is the le
gal tender or cash the cow gives you
for her accommodation, shelter, feed,
etc. Couslder your own Interests.

Hon. II. 1). Sherman, of Iowa, says
that the butter of the entire milk that
is manufactured on the farm In the
State loses at least llfty per ceut of
it s value for the want of proper con
ditious or tiie exercise of proper skill
in its production. To this fact is due
the origin of the factory system, whore

Why the System Makes Cons Fay.
Simply by taking more butter, which"
brings more per pound, from the same
quantity of milk, liy the separator
system all the cream Is extracted from
the milk, as it can be ripened evenly
at the factory, all of the butter is ob
tained from the cream, so that about
four to five pounds of butter is ob
tained from the huudred pounds of
mill:, instead of two or three pounds
which the farmer averages.
Again, the separator expels from the
cream all the impurities which may be
in the milk, thus enabling the factory
to produce fine "gilt-edge" butter.
This butter beiug produced in large
quantities, perfectly uniform in color,
salting, flavor and grain, always com
mands ready sale for cash, at the very
highest market price. These figures
are upon the basis of the cows, we now
have, fed as we now feed thorn, and
treated as we now treat them. It is
simply wasting fciC ou each cow by a
poor system of handling the milk,
that could be saved by a good butter
and cheese factory. Thero can be a
thousand good things said for a
cheese and butter factory, and not a
single objection can be urged against
it. with the separator system.
One of the best features in dairying
is that our farms constantly Increase
in productive value Instead of grow
ing less productive, as they do under
the old system of working them. As

W. II. Marshall of Mount Hood has
received the following communication
from the Ilazelwood Co. of Portland
relative to establishing a oreamery
route In Hood Kiver valley:
"We pay for butter fat on the basis
of the selling prioe of Ilazelwood but
ter, always paying just l'oO less than
the highest wholesale quotation on
Ilazelwood butter for the butter fat
in the oream delivered in Portland.
We always aim to have Hezelwood but
ter sell for several cents more than
the average oreamery. therefore, as we
pay on the selling price or Ilazelwood
butter, the farmer gets this extra.
This makes it practically a co-op
erative deal, as the farmer gets the
raise, or any extra that we can get on
butter; we get the extra volume ot
business. The fact that we are able
to make Ilazelwood butter bring a few
cents more than the ordinary makes,
has been the means of getting us the
large volume of business we are doing
here, whloh we believe is over three
times that of any other creamery ou
the Pacillo coast.
"If any one there wishes to ship
cream, they can do bo. We will loan
them cans for .'10 days, at the end of
which time if they are satlslled with
shipping, they buy the cans.
"Could there not be a cream route
started at your place, picking up the
cream along the route? We would ap
preciate any further information re
garding this point."

out of the question for the great ma

local pride and reputation at stake.

Wasco County mU New Jail.

Wasco county needs a new jail, and
needs it badly. That fact has been
sutllciently demount rated during the
past few weeks as never before. The
present headquarters for criminals is
not worthy the name of "jail," and
the wonder is thut county prisoners
during tile years past have been as se
curely hold as they have, not a break
occurring. Only for the extreme vig
ilance of Jailor Fitzgorald and the
olllcers, the thin wall would not have
been sufllclent to hold them. Decide
its insecurity, it is entirely too small
for the use of tho county. This has
boon proven since ten prisoners have
been confined therein with room for
only about half that number. What
Wasco needs is a good Pauley jail.and
