The Iiopkinton Co-operative Croam
place is one of the best olfi
cered and best managed of any within
our knowledge. This creamery was es
tablished in 1892 under an outlook not
incouroging. There was a debt of
$1200, hanging over it and the pat
ronage at first was small. Last month
tho milk received was 386,339 lbs., from
which 10,055 pounds of butter was made.
There are at present 85 good substan
tial patrons who are well satisfied and
harmonious. Tho average test was, for
September, 3.45 and yield averaged 4.!
lbs. to hundred. The price paid for
butter fat to patrons was 20}fj cts. Tho
last of the debt was paid olT and tho
creamery is now free from debt. Anew
icehouse has been paid for, now ma
chinery been put in and everything is
now kept in the best of condition under
the able supervision of J. H. GrifTeth,
whose butter has commanded to
above the highost quotations. The
money paid to patronB for September
milk amounted to about $2,500. This
is paid out here at Hopkinton and is
great benelit to tho town.—Leader.

the resonance of a note formed In the

Help the Cause.
There has never been a political cam
paign that will equal in importance
that of the one to be fought next year.
The republican party, backed by the
money power of this country and
Europe, is alert and aggressive. Flush
ed with the victory of three years ago
it will seek by every means in Its power
to maintain its supremacy.
Democrats must be up and doing.
They must wage an unceasing war up
on their enemies. In no better and
more effective way can this be done
than by the circulation of good, sound
democratic newspapers. The publisher
of the Chicago Dispatch, the great nati
onal democratic weekly, will send to
every new subscriber for three months
a copy of the Chicago Dispatch for ten
centB. If you are not already taking
the great political weekly, Bend in ten
cents at once. You should not only do
this' yourself, but you should induce all
your friends to join with you. By a
little effort you can easily raise a club
of ten or twenty subscribers.
