Oak table useful and ornamental we give away with a $5.00 Cash Sale. You will like one of tester needed. So the Creamery men of the county seem to think. Quot he matter discussed at length at the meeting Friday but no definite action to be taken till the next meeting. Butter maker do not agree As to the Herts of the Marquette Coal. The next fleeting will be held Friday. October i. The Freeborn county Dairy Assoc Ion held its regular meeting at the Lurt House Friday afternoon. In the it sence of the president on motion of r. Trow Jonathan Freeman of mos it a took the chair. The minutes of in last meeting were read by secrecy Halvorsen. Or. Johnsrud then produced the subject of testing milk id suggested that it would be a Good an to employ a Man who was an Cert tester to go around to the afferent creameries throughout the Monty and test the milk of All the Irons. Ile argued that this method Ouid effectually do away with the instant fault finding of certain patios who accuse their butter maker of lowing partiality in his tests. Or. Trow endorsed the sentiments f or. Johnsrud stating that in order in the butter maker to give this Ira Octant matter the attention it de landed it might cause him to neglect is other work. Alex Peterson of the North Star Creamery thought it would be a Good Lan to employ a Man whose familiar a with the business would not Only Nable him to make an accurate test it also to inspect the milk and butter and also the general management of he Creamery. He suggested that it Rould be a Good plan to have this in pee Tor drop in at any time so he could Adge the actual condition of the Creamery. Or. Johnsrud thought it should also get the duty of this tester to be familiar pith the Best colouring salts Etc., so hat uniformity in the product might in established. Or. Peterson objected to or. Johns Udo a suggestion As he was of the Pinion that these matters were largely influenced by the commission men if different localities and this plan of uniformity might Hurt the Sale. In reply to the question a How far shall the duties of a butter maker extend or. Trow replied that with them his duties extended As far As they could make them go but that it was difficult to define them As this depended much on the capabilities of the Man. He further stated that he did not consider that the great object of an expert tester was simply to do away with the constant kicking of some of the patrons for they ought to be allowed to kick they enjoyed it so much Aud to take this enjoyment away from them would be robbing them of what they consider one of their greatest privileges. He believed however that an expert tester would give a More reliable and uniform test. Or. Freeman then asked or. Trow if he thought that All butter maker would read the same test alike and he replied that when it came to a matter of tenths he did not think that they would. Or. Vandegrift stated that in his opinion an expert tester would not give any better satisfaction than the butter maker As they Are All supposed to be familiar with this Branch of Creamery work and unless some other employment could be found for him he did not believe that it would pay the creameries to retain the services of an expert tester. Or. Johnsrud declared that the services of a Man who had made the matter of testing a special study could be had and this Man would certainly be More capable than the butter maker who does not have the proper amount of time to devote to this work. A we have Twenty six creameries in this county and if we allow the tester $2 for each Creamery this will be much better than the continued grumbling of two or three patrons Over the test. A or. Noble did not think it would be possible to find a Man who would be capable to test and Grade the butter for foreign markets. On motion of or. Johnsrud the question was Laid Over until the next meeting. A report from the creameries who had Given the Marquette Coal a trial was called for and or. Larson reported that they had used one car of it and the butter maker did not think it was any better than the la Salle and there was some doubt if it gave As Good satisfaction. Or. Noble had no fault to find with the Marquette while or. Trow said that their butter maker it in in to in to to to to to in to to to to to n to to to to to to to to to to to to to n to n n to s to n of n n n to n a big Sale Anona.

After giving it a fair trial did not think it gave As Good satisfaction As the la Salle yet with any Grade of Coal they had proven by actual test that they used one third less since they lengthened their smokestack. Or. Schuknecht the butter maker at Albert Lea Creamery stated that he had used both the Marquette and la Salle Coal and lie was unable to say which Grade was the better As they were quite similar. A letter from the Dairy dealers dispatch a company who Are putting out special refrigerator cars was submitted but it was not thought advisable to try any new experiments along this line. The advisability of having prof. Carlyle come Down and look the creameries Over was discussed and the plan seemed to meet with general approbation As there would be no expense connected with such a visit and much Good would be derived from it. Or. Freeman requested or. Vandegrift to take the chair and the former discussed the methods of enlightening the Farmers in regard to the Dairy business he lamented the fact that so few of them took interest enough in the matter to provide themselves with any of the numerous Dairy publications that give so Many helpful suggestions along this line. The matter of using boiler compound was introduced by or. Vandegrift and he asked for information in regard to it. Or. Jensen of Clarks Grove stated that All the compound they used was potatoes and they had never been troubled with scale. In d. White arrived at this Point and was at once called upon to report in regard to foreign shipments. A the packing said he a is the import ant feature in foreign shipment but the manufacture of the butter is the All important matter that must be Given attention and some of the butter makers will be obliged to change their Mode before anything can be done in the foreign Market. England requires a mild Sweet butter and not so much Salt As the new York Market. Our butter contains about 13 percent of moisture but this is not objected to in the English Market. The amount of Salt needed for foreign shipment is about 26 to 27 ounces to every 1,000 pounds of milk. Another important thing to be observed is the cleanliness of the creameries. In a few years nearly All of the creameries will use the Pasteur izing method for i he butter made from pasteurized milk is not new to the English Market As the Danes have been using this method for a number of or. Schuknecht informed the association that butter made from pasteurized milk would keep longer and stand up better and any separator would skim much cleaner. The meeting adjourned until f i Day oct. 1st. New bicycle ordinance. The City Council passes one sidewalks or Deredi the mayor s veto goes other important business. The City Council met in regular session Friday evening with All but Ald. Morin present. The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. A new sidewalk was ordered on the South Side of water Street Between Ermina Street and the by. Crossing to be Laid on the property line the old walk was partially on the Street. C. B. Marsh and Henry Stenerson appeared before the Council and urged that the location of the Hay Market be changed and the matter was referred to the Street committee. The Resolution adopted at the last meeting granting the Northwestern Telephone Exchange co. The right to connect their East and West line with their line already placed in the City had been vetoed by the mayor and was reconsidered by the Council. Ald. Brundin moved that the Resolution be passed Over the mayor s veto but the motion was Defeated All voting in the negative except Ald. Brundin who refused to vote. Ald. Strauss offered a bicycle ordinance which was adopted by a vote of five to one Ald. Skinner opposing the motion. The ordinance regulates the Speed of bicycles in the City limits at six Miles an hour and prohibits Riding Over and through Public Parks. The ordinance becomes a Law at once repealing All other ordinances that Are inconsistent. The fire ordinance extending the fire limits was Laid Over. On motion of Ald. Brundin the Council decided by a unanimous vote to procure a temporary loan of 82,500 at a rate of interest not to exceed 7 per cent.
