PROFITS IN OLEOMARGARINE.
A number of Washington capitalists iiave lately organized a butterine com pany, which is to be one of the largest concerns of its kind in the United States. The buildings, occupying a space of over three and a half acres, are now in course of erection at Lang don, D. C, within sight of the capitol. They will include a large refrigerating plant and an electric plant. Their ice plant will have a capacity of 100 tons per day. The plans of the factory are exact duplicates of the great Munstead plant at Southall, England, which is one of the most successful butterine establishments in the world. Oleomargarine or butterine is not of American origin; its earliest manufac ture was in Europe, about twenty-five years ago. It was shortly afterwards introduced into the United States. In the fiscal year ending June 30, 1899, there were seventeen manufactories engaged in producing oleomargarine in the United States. They were located as follows: One in the District of Co lumbia, four in Illinois, three in Indi ana, two in Kansas, one in Missouri, one in New Jersey, two in Ohio and three in Rhode Island. The export of both the raw materials of oleomargarine and the finished prod uct, has been increased steadily during the last ten years. All the European factories are now absolutely dependent upon the United States for most of their neutral lard, oleo oil and cotton seed oil, used very largely in its man ufacture. Notwithstanding an internal reve nue tax of two cents per pound, the profit derived from the manufacture and sale of butterine is said to be very substantial. It is declared that should congress pass the bill which was be iore the house during the last session, requiring oleomargarine factories to pay an increased revenue tax amount ing to ten cents per pound, the manu facturers could still produce it at a profit. The prejudice existing against oleo margarine can be traceable very large ly to the bad practices of the manu facturers themselves. The fact that deception in the sale and consumption of this article has been practiced for years, has resulted in greatly injuring the trade, and has, of course, aroused the bitterest antagonism of butter makers, whose product is imitated. A New President Needed. This time it is the Connecticut Agri cultural College that is in the throes of a revolution. President Flint has call ed for the resignation of four of the faculty and probably additional mem bers will be deposed. We have been watching the course of this institution for some time past, believing that none other in the East possessed so many opportunities for placing itself fairly and squarely for agriculture as did the Connecticut Agricultural College at Storrs. Surrounded by great classical and scientific institutions there seem ed no reason for the Storrs school to undertake to enter the already crowd ed field of so-called "cultural educa tion," but rather the way was open to become a real agricultural college— the pride of the farmers of the State. Apparently President Flint had set his heart upon an institution to be model ed somewhat after his own line of edu cational effort previous to joining the college. There is no bond between himself and the farmers of the State. We believe that President Flint is playing a losing game—that the farm ers of Connecticut who wrenched the | THERE IS | \..No Secret..\ JL In the cream ripening business.

The management of the county fair of Whitman county, to be held at Col fax, will try a new innovation. They will have a fruit sale, with the idea of bringing buyers and growers together at a common point for once. If the farmers enter with hearty accord into the project, there will be a larger dis play of fruit made than is usually the case at county fairs. The results will be watched with interest.
