Skaug clothing co. 44 i Zzz Quot the Freeborn county Dairy association met at the court House Friday afternoon and although the attendance was not very Large those that were present made up in enthusiasm what they lacked in numbers. President Lawson called the meeting to order and the discussion of the milk tester matter was at once entered into. N. T. Sandburg m. Halvorsen and Gunvold Johnsrud warmly advocated the advisability of having an expert tester arguing that better results would be obtained and the work would be carried on with fess friction and fault finding. Jonathan Freeman stated that after giving the matter considerable thought he had come to the conclusion that it would be a a most righteous plan a although he doubted its tract ability. H. Dills was sceptical As to a tester being Able to get around to All the creameries and do the testing to suit the various creameries As they All test at about the same time. insisted that there would be no difficulty on that score arguing that the tester could in his opinion make about Twenty creameries testing two a Day. B. D. White was called on but refused to discuss the matter he stated however that an expert tester would be Able to serve Only five creameries but he was certain that a composite test would be Correct if properly taken. On motion of or. Barlow it was finally decided to leave the matter in the hands of a committee to be appointed by the chair. The duties of this committee Are to ascertain How Many creameries would be favourable to the employing of an expert tester and to find the Cost per bottle and other details of the plan. Or. Vandegrift next agitated the butter tub question emphasizing the fact that Supply dealers in other cities were cutting the rates simply to kill the local dealers in which Case they would have the Creamery men at their mercy. The matter was discussed with considerable feeling and the result was the cancellation of an order of a Carload of tubs that had been sent to a foreign House. In response to a query from or. Freeman or. Trow the Freeborn county representative of the Mutual Creamery insurance co., stated that the company is now ready to receive applications that applications amounting to 840,000 had been already received but that 8125,000 was necessary before the company could begin to write insurance. In regard to shipping butter to England or. White stated that the Market in this country is now equal to that of England and it would not pay at present therefore to ship abroad. Lie was of the opinion however that it is Only a question of time when conditions will change and shipments abroad be resumed. The next meeting of the association will be held at the court House Friday november 5th. New Law firm.

Todd is a splendidly equipped Pareti Coiner hav ing graduated from both the academic Aud Law departments of the Wisconsin state University and his years of experience and his personal address make him a giant at the bar. Strong corporations always employ the Best Legal Talent and perhaps the greatest encomium that can be Given the eloquence and ability of or. Todd is the fact that the three railroads running into Albert Lea retain his services regularly often employing him As a special counsel to appear for them at Distant Points along their lines. Or.
