The reports below give some idea of the importance which the creamery industry is assuming among us. There is no doubt but these institutions are recognized at the present time as great money-makers as well as work savers to the farmer and his family. Some of these creameries are 'private, but the most of them are co-operative. The co-operative creamery nnswera the demand of the farmers usually, but in their absence the private creamery is a great boon. It is probably not out ol! the way to estimate that the amount of money earned by the average dairy herd is doubled by the creamery as now conducted, as against the old fashioned manufacture of butter, every man for himself, by setting, skimming, churning and working. The machine which has revolutionized the dairy business is tne cream separator. Kossuth has Always been a leading dairy county, and last season, in spite of .the drouth, her dairy industry forged ahead and probably took first place .for quantity of butter produced. A gentlemen who knows the dairy business of Iowa as well, probably, as any other man in it, gives this as his opinion. We at least have shown that our farmers are awake and alive to the opportunities to be found in the new methods of manufacture and the advantages of co-operation which mean so much for the future. No farmer should be.satisfied, until he secures for himself the benefits of a creamery.

AlobNA, Mtroti Schenck, secretary of the Algona Co-OperatiVe Creamery Company, reports for the year from December 1, 1893. to Nov. 30, 1894, the receipt of 961,495 pounds of milk, with a butter output of 34,890 pounds. The amount received for butter was $8,059.66. The average price paid for milk was 76 cents per 100. This Creamery is managed by J?eter Larson as well as any creamery in the county, and for the quantity of milk handled, the showing is as satisfactory. There are certain expenses which are not increased nor diminished by the volume of business done, and consequently the cost pet- pound for making is less in the creameries. doing a heavy business. This creamery is entitled to a much' larger patronage than it gets. Abstracts of Title, OFFICE OVER ALQVNA STATE MtfR e§tate, Loans, and Insurance, BUHT. The Burt MoUitor gives a very interesting report of the creamery .of that place for the year 1894, which shows that the receipts were over $28,000. and that there was an increase in the business over Uio previous year of 40 per cent. The croa.uiery took in 3.207,781 pounds of milk, from which' it turned out 137,154 pounds of butter, for which 19£ cents per pound was received. The average price paid per cwt. of milk was 74 cents, the highest price being 9o cents for the months of January, September, November and December^ and the lowest 55 cents for May. The cost of ranking the butter was 2| cents per pound. This is a co-operative creamery, and it pays for milk on the 20th of each month for the month preceding. The increase of 40 per cent. iti the business of this creamery is in sharp contrast with what is reported for the state of Iowa at large. Secretary Fowler, of the State Agricultural Society, showing a falling off of 20.000,-' 000 pounds of dairy products during the year. The diminution is doubtless to be laid to the drouth, the worst effects of which this county escaped. The Monitor estimates that the receipts of the Buffalo F,o.rk, Fenton and Lone llock cre.Htneries 'for 1894 amounted to about $32,000. G-. S. Angns was reelected president of the Burt creamery, and Fred J. Beane secretary. It Will Pay You TO CALL ON 1PWWP.1,T, Tie 8J.ce Mm, This Week. ALGONA, IOWA.
