that for seven months each year Liny id I
give an aveinge of twenty pounds per day
which j., equivalent to .nwut tivo g.,ii .i,, f

A collection district i-s an area from
which the day's milk product c;-n b com

the rounds of the farms w hich it eni'iraces
and $20 is a big sum for a community of
that small s ze to toivgo when it might as
well plieed to iis credit. In a single
month it would amount to $000, and in a
year to 57.200. Such at ha-taiethe
figures given in the ht annual statement
of a cheese lactory in Ivittson cuinty.
Minnesota, which had been inopeiii'ion
since lfSO where no-.hing h id benipie
viousiv raised Out wheat.
FAVORITK I'l.AX OF OPKtt ATtN'O.
The favorite plan for operating anil
mainttining cheese factories is, to have a
cent ial curing room in i ach county, with
auxilliaty inaiichcs in each adjacent
township, or wheiwef a ltl'ge enough
quota of cons can be secured to furnish
requisite milk: eich of these bra:. ches to
be fitted witii suitable aiparatus for mak
ing green cheese, which would be hauled
once or twice a week to the main factory
to be cured and boxed, pieparatorv io
shipment for maiket. The cost o! tne-e
auxilliarie- v ith outfit ought not to exceed
$200 apiece. -By having oLe factory in
each township or hamlet, each larmer
could bring in his own milk, and as to
the care of this milk and the maki ig of
the cheese, t her j are plenty of boys and
girls who would be quite capable of at-te-joing
Another plan of operation is to have
the firm. -re of a district all turn their cows
into u :onitnon herd, and at the end of the
siason. afcr all expenses lor lal or, etc.,
are paid, to divide the balance among the
se'er d ow nil's of the Cuffs.
CJ-oPERATIVE PLA y.
When a c operative cheese lactory or
creamery is to be stai'te I, a list is ob
Hined of all those who can furnish milk,
as well as of the number ol cows each
person can supply milk irom; and as soon
as acceptable parties have been sslected to
lake charge of the branch lactones, all
meet together in mid-winter to receive
practical lessons every day for a month
from a competent instructor, or until they
all hero ce fitted to cany on the wi.rk
properly. Alterwards, during the busy
season, occasional visits are made by the

To have good butter and cheese good
milk must be usid, and as Iresh as possi-
b'e. It should ( ontain not, less than three
per cent of butterf.it. Four per cent is
accepted as the maximum. The last au
nual Sta'e inspection lor Minnesota
discovered au ave age percentage of 3.63
per cent which is a higoer standard ihan
has been recorded lor any other State.
An avetagc of 81 i cents p-r 100 pounds
is paid for milk in Minnr-s .ui, and ijc, in
estern Massachusetts w heie some Super
lative cremerit-s are in operation. The
milk is bought outright, a plan which is
to some ?xteut taking th': place of the old
custom of manufacturing for patrons.
A cow yielding. COO gallons a year ought
lo give dining the 2.S earlier weeks of her
milk-flow about 470 gallons, which, at
the rate of 1 pound of cheese to each
gallon of mdk. would amount, after allow
ing for shrinkage, to 4 cwt. olcheise.
And if the milk is for the buttci dairy,
the produce of 600 gallons containing 4

FA IK ADVERTISING TRIP.
What Rev. Kdward Bnll haa Been
Doing: for the Fair and the Oood
New he Bring ot What the People
When we get back from Beaurort,
where we are dovv going, we vvitl have
completed our sjxth advertising circuit! in
the interest ot the New Berne Fair. We
have made a thorough and carelul can
vass, say within a radius of a hundred
miles ot New Berne, than ever beiore.
Some far away points have been omitted,
and a good many new places visited, so
that the mileage has not been diminished,
butincreased some two hundred miles or
more over any other year.
The weather has been more mild and
pleasant than during any previous round,
so that the work has been accomplished
with less personal discomlott- thit evtf
beiore. Except a day or two at Greens
boro, when the mercury was near zero,
we found no severe weather. Ac Columbia,
S. C, it was mihi, although there were
live or six inches of snow. At ML Airy,
where 8t one time we found the thermoni
eier registering fourteen degrees below
z to, it was just coml'oi'toble, at Ashevide,
like au In, dan summer at Charlotte,
bristht and beautiful as a day in May, at
Raleigh, "just speDdid "
The pe. pie, always clever, seemed to lie
moiv kind and helpful than ever. Nearly
every station agent know s us, and one
would occasionally say as we stepped off
ine bain: "New R.-rne Fair," or, "I was
thinking, it was about tim - lor you." or.
T was is pei ting you about this time''
S1 many offered to t ike the "literature"
to one place er anodicr when they wsre
going, that the Fair has been advertised in
that way in a scnr.t of new places.
Tne newspapers have generally given
very favorable aud complimentary notices
about five in Wilmington, four in Col
umbia, S. C, tvo in Asheville, five in
Charlotte, five in Raleigh, two in Hen
derson, two in Fayetievllle, three in
Greensboro, two in Mt. Airy, five iu Nor
folk Va , and many others.
There are more people on the railroads,
and in the hotels th in we have ever seen
before. Eght ''traveling men' in the
same lin'j of goods, went on the train with
us lo Mt. Airy eighty live stopped at
the "Benbow." in Greensboro, and a
crowd t.t the -McAdoo," over Sunday
the train troin Danville was so full many
had to stand. What it means no one can
exactly tell some fay they are doing bus
iness, some say ihey are looking for busi
ness, one suggested that they were lun
niug it way from the sheriff. Perhaps they
smell toe (.-)cent of a, new business boom.
One thing the people know that there
will be a big Fair iu New Berne the last
week iu February. Many have attended
our previous Fa ire, and want to come
again. All the rest want lo come "just this
once." If a tenth of those who have ex
pressed a desire and iuiention to come,
'get i here.'' we shall have to enlarge the
Among the "incidents" was this, a lit

didn't want, he should carry our grip, or
didn't want he should do this, or didn t

that the "happiest man in the world gen

"bow at a venture,'' but he never knew

NTATE GI ARII APPROPRIATION.
Only the 8-3,000 Tor the Encampment
to be Stopped Valne of the tiaard
It Should be Supported.
It is sa'.d that f he majority in the legis"
lature have reconsidered the first plan of
taking away all the appropriation from
the State Guard and that it now appears
probable that Only the $5,000 for the an
nual encampment will be stricken out,
leaving the remainder ot the appropria
tion as it now stands.
There surely should bs no cut in the
appropriation to maintain the State
guard. Their services may be unexpec
tedly required where least looked for at
any time. The companies haye in the
past shown their readiness to respond to
the call ol duty and would do so agaiu.
If it c-ime to actual conflict their services
would Im3 invaluable, aud moreover the
mere knowledge that there is such a foice
ready lor service at a minute's notice has,
in itself a tendency towards the discour
agement of any wholesale lawlessness or
combined resistance to the execntion of
the law, that is at once wholesome and
potent. If an emergency arises in which
troops are needed, it is no time then to
look atier organizing them their main
tenance so that they will be ready against
an evil day is the proper course and no
one should begrudge the little aid that
encourages the organization and existence
of said companies or even the appropria
tion I hut gives biennially (one-liall one
year, the other half the next) a few day's
drill practice and recreation together in
Gov. Holt, we understand, once said
he would not be Governor unless he had u
good State guard at his baek. It was a
sensible position to take. There should
always be a proper, quickly avail
able, reserve lorce for the upholding
of all legal authority.
VAI.TEOF SHALL I JIDFNTRIEN.
Special Referenee to the Articles on
Creameries and Cheese Faetorles.
The articles which we are now publish
ing from the gifted pen of Mr. Chas. Hal
lock deserve more than usual attention.
The promotion of such small industries as
butter and cheese lactones and the raising
of general stock and their provender to
which North Carolina is so well adapted
and which go hand in hand with such
industries is one of the surest roads to
sound and iay prosperity. Not ouly
would the larnirrs quickly feel the finan
cial benefit but the new order of things
would soon result in marked changes for
the better on everv farm practicing it.
Cheese and butt-r factories would mean
more stock, more stock more manure,
more manure richer lands, richer lands
bigger crops, at less outlay of labor.
Study the subject and let results follow.
Mr. Hallock outlines plans by which
any community of fanners, on have a
cheese and butter factory and scarcely one
c-in be tound but what would find it to
t Ii oi r advantage to do so.
