Dear wrtte'r noticed an artlcl, in your paper re the cost o: milk. It certainly does seem to be away out of reason. 1 have been per sonally over all'or Southern Alberta and have interviewed a great many farmers, and am .surprised to see the number of farmers that are buying their butter today from the mer- chant. I asked them on every occa sion why It was 'they'.were doing thlt and their answer In. every case, U that they have no time to bother will cowa as wheat hi what they wanted. Even men that have cowa are let ting them go dry, do not want tc bother milking them. The dain company have men out looking for milk and cream. Why, it Is a Joke with some of these farmers. The; forget 1914 and how the cowt were lltesavers to a good many for a years back and they will be again but as long as some of these. men have n few dollars they do not care to work and wont work. If their wives want to milk tie cowl all well and good, men are getting beyond that. What I want to know Is does Mr. Wardman know of these. If so. the farmer is the man he waats to get after. The farmer now is get- j ting 42 cents for butter fat and charges all paid. let him figure this up wtycb will come to consider- able extra charges and the haudling of same. No wonder we pay 50 cento for butter or 12H for milk. I tell you gentlemen we will have to do It as long as the farmer will not keep the cows. They are getting 5 cents a quart for milk f.o.b, on ths farm. This milk has to be clarified and pasteurized In order to make it safe for use. getting it from different cows a'Jd conditions, in the way the milk Is put out by the farmer. And again I will say that as long as the farmer will not produce the milk and men have .to go out and beg for what milk they do get we will have to pay the price. I would like very much to meet Mr. Wardman personally, aad could explain to him more fully where he Is wrong in roasting this particular dsjry ?r any other :dalry at present.- Respectfully yonrs, M.

The price of cream hat always gone up with the price', of butter and farmers hero are getting as much for their cream as any; iu Alberta. And the price of butter'.ls not any higher than elsewhere.
