Two Iri-- In Winter.
The contracts under which milk has
been bought are calculated to interest
the farmer in winter production, as
the price j aid him depends not only
upon the quality of his product, but
also upon the wholesale butter price,
so that milk is costing the company
today about twice what it did in the
early summer. Despite this Induce

farmers have paid no attention to the

has in its agricultural department a

clean food and water; clean barns

Mill Pom-ii All Feature.
The proposed dairy farm of the Tri
City company will possess all these
features. The best dairy farms in the
world are in Wisconsin and Illinois,
some of which have already been in
spected in search of the most modern
ideas. Curler's farm at DeKalb is one
of this class. Gurler's milk sells at 12
cents a quart in Chicago. The farm of
former Gov. Hoard at Ft. Atkinson.
Wis., is another. Hoard's butter is
sold in Buffalo, N. Y., direct to the
most exclusive family trade. Such
things indicate the value placed on the
highest class of dairy products by the
public. The Rock Island farm will be
tqual to either of these farms in all
The farm leased consists of f.40
acres of timbered pasture and SCO
acres of tillable land. On it at present
are two dwellings and a 00x0 barn.
New dwellings for employes and cattle
bants on three sides of the present
barn (2JxlS0) are contemplated, in
addition to which the finest kind of a
milk house and several silos will be
constructed. A spring on the hillside
will be piped to the milk house and a
gasoline engine will pump drinking wa
ter for the cattle from a deep well. As
soon as possible the timber will be
cleared and the land put under culti
vation, for in modern dairy farming
pasturing is extravagant.

It is planned to put 400 cows on the
farm as soon as they can be taken
care of, and more than likely they will
be selected by the experts from the
