Cull fi-.rn t'ltiznM'AiMll'itriun-H' Meet In,;. At n moving of citizc n of Moridc n and vicinity hold kmio tint a;;o to ronnidor tho advisability of building u creamery at thiu place it vusth uht to le too Into to nmhrtnLo tlio work t lie present season, and too early to boin for the next season, and tho iiio,tinti(lj()unn,'!AviL!joutiV.)in;,' any thing to advr.nco the project, It is now thought best to cjill another meet in'' and take nva uiumtorv w.eps us may ho donned expedient to secure 1 he iinul success of tho cntornriso Thin U a question in which tho poopl of both town and country should ho deeply interested. Yory fi'v fanners huvotho conveniences necessary to inako lirst class butter in hot weather and oven those who aro best prepare and most successful, aro workup at a disadvantage, and with tho very best results their butter does not briiu? thi price in tho market that in readily ob tainodfor creamery butter. Even though it may bo of unexceptionable quality tho fact that it .)os into tho market ius country butler places it at a discount iii competition with that manufactured at tho establish creameries. Tlion aain it is estiniat cutna with tlio improved machinery now in use, alout om third more but ter may bo made from tho same milk than by tho old process. Thin tfaiu in miantityas well astlto realization of uniformly belter prices for creamery butter make it highly important to tho farmer to encourage an enterprise o this kind. During tho heated season also tho milk may bo manufactured into cheese, and, at any timo either product may bo produced for which there is t ho host demand and tho most remunerative price. It is sometimes said that the western cheese is not equal to that manufactured in the old dairy districts of tho east, and that it canoot bo profit ably sold. It is unnecessary to offer any extended argument to refute t.hi- absurd proposition. Tho fact that cheese manufactured in the west from .skimmed milk will not compote in tin markets with tlio best New York full cream cheese, is no reason why a Kan ms full cream cha'-m, if manufactured would not do so successfully. It would bo unreasonable to expect an inferior product of any kind to com mand a superior price, and the fact that it has not done so k no reason why a good article manufactured here would not bring as good a prico as an article of tho same grado manufact ured in tho east. It may bo said that eastern factories have an established reputation that always wanes them good prices and a ready wile. That is undoubtedly true, and it is un questionably true also, that they did not establish their reputation by mak ing skimmed milk clieesr; and tho principle reason why western factorion bavo failed to successfully corapeto ' with thoso in tho east is becauso they have undertaken to mako butter and choofio both from tho sumo milk. While this policy is pursued they may mako good butter, but they cannot taako swd cheese, and it would bo folly to expect good prices for it. There is no ro;u'.m, however, why as' i.yyl article cannot be umufuc-l tnrod hero nnr any phico on this green carili, proyided the name methods bo employed as tho experience of eastern factories haw demount rutinl mostprac ticuble and most profitable. It always pays best to produce tho best products; and in order to achieve the greatest succor it is essential that tho latest ainl most approved methods be adopt ed. That this is a subject in which the entire farming community are deeply interested there can bo no manner of doubt Uut business men as' well as farm ers arodi-eply intona ted in this enter pmo. t is doubtful if any merchant domr pusmoss m tins or any other small town realizes as much for the butter he buys from tho farmers dur ing the heated season, as it costs him If ho doc s do so ho must have abettt place to store it than most of them have, and ho must not placo a hi estimate upon his labor in handling, re-working, packing and shipping. Tho establishment of a creamery then would result in a gain of ono-third in the quantity of the product and an in crease in tho prico to tho farmer, and would likowlso obviate tho necessity of handling of country butter by the merchant Tho superior quality of tho butter and cheese, and tho facili tn s for storing and preserving the same indefinitely, would always in sure tho most profitable returns. In view of tho prospoctivo advanta ges to all parties as well aa tho addi tioual advantage to result to the town and tho community from tho estab hshmentof any new industry, tho citizens and businoss men of Meriden unite in a call for a meeting to be held at Gardner's hall on thursday evening Sept. 12th. 1889 to effect an organiza tion and mako such preliminary nr rangomontrt as may bo deemed ncees sary for the future success of tlio en terpnso. Let farmers and business men all attend this meeting, and give tho project tlio encouragement which its importance demands.
