The Albany Co-operative creamery, representing capital of $5,000.00, wae built
in the spring of 1890. Taking figures for the year 1899, it received the milk of 283
cows from 52 patrons, handled 1,675.080 pounds of milk and made a product from
the sale of which it realized $18,237.18, of which $14,450 19 net was returned to the
patrons in payment of the butter fat taken from the milk. The difference of $3,-
767.00 represents cost of manufacture, transportation charges, interest on stock and
amount laid aside each year to be applied towards taking up shares of stock out
The capital stock of $5,000.00 is made up of 100 shares at $50.00 each, of which
18 shares are still in the hands of the association. A skimming plant, costing
$1100.00, was put in at Sbedds station in 1897, and arrangements are now in prog
ress to establish another skimming station at Tangent at an estimated cost of $1600.-
00, which it is expected will be in operation by April 1st.

In connection with a statement of this kind it must be remembered that some
of the creamery patrons are in the habit of retaining at home the cream used by
themselves for household purposes, which often makes a considerable difference in

ing statement by months, wherein is contained the total number of pounds of milk
handled, num ber of pounds of butter fat, amount earned by patrons number of
cows and amount paid per pound for butter fat :
