When c. tarted

incensua of opinion that what
the town needed most was somethln
to increase the pay-roll, and acting
on this conviction they decided up?
on the creamery. The creamery

of a year and it does appear to nu
to be a suicidal policy to antago

which must prove detrimental to
the creamery's interest, and there?
