VOLUME XXXII—NUMBER 79
LESS THAN 1,000
MILK COWS IN
Number Is Much Lower
Than Average for
Pew Dairies in County Are Located
Near Towns; 190 More High-
Grade Cows Needed
There are less than a thousand milk
cows in Martin County. The counties
of the State will average a far greater
number. Butter and other milk prod
ucts arc shipped into our confines for
our consumption. This means hun
dreds of thousands of dollars going out
each year for butter and milk prod
ucts. A few persons near our larger
towns are keeping u ;ows for profit.
However, there is little profit in these
adventures to what the cows could be
made to pay if a creamery, consisting
of probably SIO,OOO investment, were
. 5, 7 *
While fanners, hard pressed by the
crop failures of this year, are looking
about for something to diversify their
activity with a better chance at mak
ing money, it would be wise to inves
tigate this means. There will be no
means of control of production, in
creasing quantity or reducing it rea
sonably, little means of providing milk
inspection, and guaranteeing its clean
liness until the production of it is start
ed as a local business and put upon a
sound business basis. The dairy men
of our cities for the sake of thij and
other people's children pasteurize and
otherwise regulate the sanitation of
milk products. per cent of
the children of otar county dwell near
(he cities, however. It appears that
100 additional highly bred milk cows on
f well-established creamery route cen
tering the business in some town of
the county would be a paying invest
ment and productive of health.

While at his home Tuesday moil

desire to yawn, and when he stretch

mouth, the low jaw bone flew out of
place and he found that closing his
mouth was impossible. He had the
joint set at the Davis hospital, and
went hack to his home.
Tuesday night, feeling drowsy after
becoming warm following hours con
tact with the damp, cold atmosphere
that had hovered over this locality for
several days, the aged man was seiz

yawn, and when the aperture to his
vocal organs again assumed its max
imum size and capacity, the jaw bone
flew out of place again and the same
trouble was to do over.. With his
mouth >j>en as wide as the muscles
of the lower jaw would permit, the
aged man went through the night
hoping in vain that his ma.stifatory
organ might assume its normal posi

hours without being able to take any
nourishment except liquid, Simonton
went back to the hospital and had the
dislocated joint reset. He\was resting
