That would mako a to tal of ?S,000,000. Then added to this, according to Mr. Harman, was a $15, 000,000 total or other butter shipped out of the state, buttor that was over and above that noeded hero. And then In addition to that was $2,000,000 of country butter sent to big stntlonu lor work-over and from there sent out side the state for storago and ulti mate usage. On top of nil this, says Mr. llarmnn, thoro Is a $15,000,000 to tal of cream and milk that Is used In the homes of tho stato day by day and which goes into lco cream and so forth.
