CREAMERY OUTPUT 600 POUNDS DAILY Successful Enterprise; $2,0)0.4K Monthly Payroll With the advent of pasture the amount of cream delivered to the creumerV Is Increasing every day. And what is equally satisfactory to the association is the steady increase of shareholders. During the past month the output of the creamery has averaged 600 pounds dally. While a regular market has not been fully established for the entire output, the Union Meat Co., of Portland, pur chases the surplus over and above the regular trade. During April the amount paid for cream lacked a few dollars of being $2,000. Payment Is made on the. 16th of each month. The enterprise has yielded a profit since the first month of its establishment, which is certainly very gratifying to the association of farmers.

The delivery of cream at present amounts to 30,000 pounds per month, and as pasture Increases It is expected that the supply will Increase accordingly.
