Farmers from the sur- rounding district find a poor .market for their produce in Hie local stores, as the'retailers "have to meet the com. petition 'of: Chiheee truck gardeners. A. H. McKeown and 0. T. Lathrop were appointed a special committee to bring in a -report on the market question. For some time the Board of Trade has been tvorking on the proposition of getting a creamery established here. A. B. Staffofd of the hew indus- tries committee reported last night that the matter had: so far advanced that the government would erect a creamery farmers of the dis- trict would guarantee to deliver milk, from 200 cows. The question on which She board is working now is to get the farmers to take up the matter, and create a supply of cream.

Lethbridge consumes such a quantity of-milk-now that-those in the dairy business find it more profit- able to deliver milk than to sell -onl> the'cream.
