V'c suppose you know, that on ac
count of the inferior. greasy and un
clean ordinary butter, with which the
market has been Hooded, the sales of
our Hutterine. which Is always sweet
mid pure and especially our KlI.VKlt
OlltTUN' HUTTKHINK Increase so
enormously, that the Missouri Logis
lature passed a bill prohibiting the
Fale of Hutterine. It's strange to
think of legislators prohibiting the sale
of anything because it is pood ami
pure; yet, that's about what our great
men have been dolus?; but If our
Hutterine was not better than ordinary
butter, its sale would not have in
creased so enormously, and house
keepers prefer our Hutterine to ordi
nary butter. A XI) TO ANY OTHER
