BurtNews: Russel Cook has a family relic in an old eighteenth-century clock that belonged to his grandfather and. has been in the Cook family over one hundred years. It's an old timer. Geo. Hawkins has recently overhauled it and fitted it up. Mr. Cook has been offered §100 for it several times but don't care to part company with the old "grandfather's clock." The creamery at this place is kept humming at this time of the year. During'the mouth of May there were over 375,000 Ibs. of milk received, and some over 15,000 Ibs, of butter made, which is over 500 Ibs. per day. This is by far the largest amount taken in since the creamery started. The cost of making, including tubs, salt, interest on stock, etc., was only 1% cents per pound. They have now four separators running and talk of putting in another if the receipts continue to increase as they have been. There are now 110 patrons on the books. ; There is something worthy of note concerning the success and very liberal patronage the creamery has enjoyed. In the first place it has had officials in cliavge whose integrity was not questioned and who had the business at heart, The : Jib' oral patronage has enabled them to reduce the expense, because the more milk they receive the less it costs per pound to make It into butter. The low cost of 1% cents per pound in making butter is bolow the average of creameries, hence it not? the patrons that 'much wore. During April! the secretary pf our creamery states, wo paid 35 cents per hundred more foremilk than they paid at Bancroft. ku Verne Review: The hay bam at Morton's SJdlng north of town was buyned Tuesday, together with three cars and 80 tons of hay, The fire was started by a spark from a passing train Master JSftrl-Johnson west of town while out feed,* }ng the horses last Sunday was struck, and bitten on the chest by a two year old colt- He didn't complain any (Juring the day, but in the evening was taken suddenly ill and by morning was so much worse that a doetoi"was palled, He is much better at this writing.
