He is a farmer, and the only crop

he was in Gastonia.
He has lived at his present

New equipment recently lKught is
expected to arrive here daily for the
Western Carolina Creamery, which,
when installed, will represent an out
lay o f over $.r,(HH), according to W. R.
Woodall, manager of the firm.
The new equipment, includes two,
2.ri0-gallon vats for the pasteurizing
department, and a high-speed refrig
erating plant, which will supplement
the three machines now in use. Tho
two modern vats will be used instead
of the 2tl0-gallon vat now in use.
When the new equipment is in
stalled, the capacity of the plant will
be more than doubled. The new
equipment is expected to Ve in opera
tion by the fifteenth of April, accord
ing to Mr. Woodall,
A new boiler has just been placed
in the building. The new boiler is of
the marine type, and is 2S-horsepow-er,
and takes the place of a 15-horse-power
The plant now has three crtld stor
age rooms. The temperature in one
of the rooms is maintained at IM de
grees, and in the hardening rooms
the temperature remains about twenty
degrecfi Is'low zero.
Although the plant was opened less
than twenty months ago, a number of
changes have been made. Over
$(!, 0(10 was sHnt on the plant when
all- WaynesviHe milk was taken over
by them, and must of the new equip
ment now being installed is for the
purpose of handling more milk.
Hesides milk, the plant has a ca
pacity of ten gallons of ice cream
every ten minutes, and an uivliniited
capacity for making butter, cottage
cheese and fancy ice cream molds.
Several weeks ago, the manage
ment of the firm, started a new
phase of the business that of gath
ering eggs along the cream routes.
This has worked up to tlx' point where
about 1,000 dozen of eggs per week
are being brought in. The eggs are
not placed on storage, but immediate
ly put on the market.
The farmers are paid weekly for
the cream and eggs, instead of month
ly as is the case with many cream
eries. In addition to the egg Imsiness, Mr.
Woodall slated that an "experiment
station" was being built on the lot
adjoining the plant, in which a flock
of 150 White lCghorn hens would be
kept for laying. These hens will be
carefully checked and accurate rec
ords made with two different groups.
One will be fed milk products anil
butter milk to see the effect -on laying.
Another phase of the "experiment,
station" will he milk foil chickens
fop market, he stated.
Hi cause of the had 'weather, work
on the chicken house and yard has
been held up, but workmen were
busy this week v-ompleting the job.
The. results from feeding the lay-
inir hcn.s milk will be given to the
farmers, iti order that they may use
skiiu milk for poultry feeding, and
increase the. size of their laying (locks
at ho additional-cost lor food.
