The result of this mrotlnts wa'J the organization known to us as the Vermont Dalrympn's apsoclatlon. For the first few years a business meeting for the election of olllccrs was held in October and a winter meeting, where speaklnK and discussions on farm prob lems was in order, was held In January. Kor nine years there two meetings were held. At the tenth mcelliiK, it was voted to ehangp the constitution and thereafter hold only one mpptlng a year, that mpptlng to he held tlio second week in January, and this law still holds. The first president wan I. I). Mason of Hlphmond, who wus rc-plcctcd fur a num ber of ye-ars. the first secretary was O. S. nilsi; of Oeorcln and he was in this position for eleven years. There were Ihrpp tiur.teps from pach county in the State, their duties bplnc to further the Interests of the association and get new members, fifty years is a lone tlnip for any organization to live and flourish and the mpu wlo founded -this Dairymen's association had a vision and exercised rare judgment and ability In shaping the affairs of the association. From t 111 small beglnnlng th association has grown to be rccogni.ed as Hip largest, and most progrpsslvo Dairymen's association In the east, if not In the I'nited .States. In the old days the mibjeets for discussion were largely dairy cows and the best methods of making butter; the exhibits were, butter and cheese. Only twenty years Hgo we had over two hundred samples of butter sent In for scoring, last year there were nhout forty. This is proof that we are fast becoming a milk shipping State. I am told that al the present time over fifty per cent of the milk received In Metropolitan Boston said that It was to tho credit of the Is from Vermont farms; probably a tenth maple sugar makers that In tho history as much is shipped from the west side of of prosecution for violation of the puro the State to help to supply the Now food, not one case could be found against York market. jthe Vermont farmer. This was'remark- ' Vermont farms are best adapted to able in a product in such demand as Ver dalrying and whatovn- our personal mont maple sugar, when adulteration feelings ore in the matter. I believe the could bo practiced with such profits, lie shipping of whole milk Is to continue to 'could say almost the same of the butter increase until the greater part of the packages. There have been some slight milk produced In the State will be sold deficiencies in the weights but no gross as whole milk. Certainly tho milk made 'violation. nearest tho railroads will be shipped and Mr. Walsh then took ujtho subject of tho creameries farther backwlll bo used lahels. The final packages must .bo as feeders or for the manufacture of jlahelled, and tho department prefers an commercial sweet cream. Tlio time will educational campaign to prosecutions, for come when Vermont will be an importer of butter. This will be determined some what by the amount of oleomargerine the farmers use In their own families. It is natural that the Vermont farmers should be interested In the dairy cow take Its course. The big packers are and In her future. There was nc.ver a obeying tho law, for they know what It time when tho dairymen could s HI Is. The trouble is with the smaller man. ufford to caro for and feed unproductive The speaker believed that It was almost cows as now.

Forty four per cent, was used as whole milk, 30 por cent, is butter, 4',. per cent, as cheese, 4' ier cent, as fanned milk, 4 per cent, as icu cream, 4 per cent on the farm and 2 1-2 per com. in waste in jne inausiry. uur- Injf tho lato war tho American exports of milk increased three times. In 1911 70,000, 000 pounds of milk left the United States. In the year 1019 tho total was 2.500,000.000 pounds. Tho 1914 shipments of 70,000,000 was nearly all butter and cheese. One half of tho 1918 shipments waH condensed milk, When tho countries of Europo ad just themselves and the cnll for our dairy products begin to fall off, what, are we to do with this Immense quantity of milk? Think it over. Our labor situation Is yet unsolved. It Is impossible for tho farmer, who Is oblig ed to rely on his farm receipts for the maintenance ot himself and family, to compete with prices paid at the manu facturing centers. Wo cannot havo tho farmer work 10 hours a day to feed tho laborer on an eight-hour day basis. The boycott of labor and tho return of the farm to'a family production basis la sure ly a radical solution of the farm labor probtom. It seems to bo the Idea ot labor to-day to receive much and glvo as lit- te as possible In return. Tho Industries are about all oporutlng on nn eight-hour day basis. Thoy demand still less hours and more pay, their demands so fur nearly all having been granted with this J result, lilcher prices tor tho necessaries of life, every one strlklnu back at the ' fcileni) iP(fsinton to prevent lynchlngs fanner.

If you will pardon mc 1 would like to ntnte fiom a speech of Mr Munn. pres ident of tho American Jersey Cattle club, delivered In Xew Kngitmd a short time ai;o Mr. Munn sMd- "This nation was born from an inspir ation by the firrdde of a farm and coun try home. The midnight ride of Paul Itc'ere was an Inspiration born where the shadows from the flrolde danced on tho walls In a country home. There has nev er been a national crisis whpn that pa triotic spirit engendered bp.ck there by the flrci'ldr of the homo In the country has not come forward with Its might and saved the country. U is by that fireside, where there, are gathered In the evening the father, mother and children, that tho real suKtantlal character Is built, and where the real love of country and re spect for good arc born, far more than in cities." Hefnre ploslug I must pay a tribute to my fellow Isborpr, Mr. Myron Adams, at one time presidpnt and for a grrat many years treasurer of this association, who was called from ITs during the past year. A man among men, a friend well worth having and of great worth. V'e shall miss him, hut the mantle of hie faithful servlrc In this organization must fail on some worthy member. In closing let hip say, I am convinced that thin Dairymen's association, started ,".n years ago, has before it now a long, useful life. I thank yoyi oil for tho loyal support and IipIp J have "received during the many years I have bepn one of your officers, and I would ask for the incom ing ofliccrs tile same support, ltd please, remember that the success of this asso ciation does not depend as much on tho cfliclcncy of its ofllcers as upon the loy alty of Its members. Again I thank you. I-RGAL, PACKAGES AXD DABELS D. M. Walsh, 11 graduate of the Uni versity of Vermont and now I'nitPd States food and drug Inspector of Boston, spoke o legal packages and labels. Mr. Walsh It realizes, In the case of tlio farmer, when laws are almost too numerous to mention, that many violations are due to Ignorance. However, If this Is persisted In, the day will come when the law will nutuufactururf. of cans nnd tho proposl tlon seericd an easy one. Ho also warned against too much moisture In butter. This wax one of the causes of short weight and also tended toward the violation of tlii butter fat requirements. He advised the creameries to jmrchaBn moisture testers. Mr. Walsh also spoko of the cheese now being made from skim milk. This should be marked, If only a part of tho contents were made of skim milk. Tho Vermont 'laws nro nearly Identical with the federal laws. If tho packages average all right there Is no question of prosecu tion whero the shipper apparently Intends to be honest. There havo been cases of prosecutions for overweight ut these are In tho cases of where a man would at tempt to make the labelling ridiculous by perhaps marking two ounces on a pound lean anu inus make the mark of no value, j In these limes tho marking of packages (mum. uv uuservcu, lor In commodities like cp.ccs the price has gone up tremendously and the shippers try to get around tlio customer by pultlng small amounts Into packages or the same slzo as before, PURE BRED SIRES E. F. Burton of the bureau of animal Industry, Washington, D. C, was the next speaker, "Puro bred sires determine the fundamental capacity of an animal to be profitable," raid Mr. Burton. Ho deter mined the amount of rcvenuo which would bo derived from the Investment In grain. Ho likened the old dairy cow fo the first threshing machine ho had seen when it took two days to do tho work of a fow hours. Tho present cow should be Im proved Just as was the machlno. Of courso It takes more power to operate It, but tho results are so much greater. if one of tho old cows produced 200 pounds of uuner ini on 6,200 pounds of gruln and me new cow produced 400 pounds of but lor fat on 9,300 pounds of grain, the farm cr was Bavlng 3,100 pounds of grain. Ho predicted closer competition In tho future wun joreign countries, i Australia but ter fat Is selling for 28 nnd 30 cents. In Denmark, tho dairy Industry Is as gooa us ever but business has not been ad- . Continued oa iMuto -Xoar).

L". S. Bratton, a white attorney ot Little flock.

BARNES REVEALS HOOVER'S POLITICS Declares Ex-Food Administrator Is "Progressive Republican" Believing in Equal Opportunity for Everybody NOT A CANDIDATE Only Cililrnee of Spontaneous and Uiilvcrnl I'ntiulnr Demand Will Over whelm His Resolution (o Accept JHkIi I'tillllenl Office New York, Jan. 14. Herbert Hoover was declared to-night by Julius Barnes, i,iu ....... .i .i..i . v.. .. "progressive republican" who "will never allow himself to be a candidate for high olllce, nor allow his friends to make un effort In his behalf, unless there shall come such Indisputable evidence ot such spontaneous and universal popular de mand that it will overwhelm his present resolution not to enter politics." Mr. Barnes, who Is director of tho United States Wheat Corporation, was the prin cipal speaker at tho annual dinner ot the National Wholesale Dry Goods asso ciation. Referring to reports that Mr. Hoover might bo a democratic presidential can didate Mr. Barnes said: "As a lite-long republican 1 am reas sured to believe that only one conceivable development could place him on the dem ocratic ticket, in splto, ot all that has appeared In the ryennt press. I believe that could come about only If over confidence In their own jwlltlcal pros pects blinds the IU-publlcnn party to adopt a non-progroslvc platform, and to nominate candidates of reaction. "With his intense earnestness of pur pose and his sinrcro deslro to further tho social progress of our people by the preservation of equal opportunity, it ii conceivable that the liberal-minded vot ers of all parties may then Insistently dcmanil such leadership as his for the expression of rightful, social and polit ical Ideals. "Tho partisanship of Herbert Hoove extends only to the Insistence on the. maintenance of equality of opportunity in this country, and to support o that part exemplifying thnt Ideal. That door of opportunity must be made to swing paslly on tho hinge of efficiency It must not be slammed In tho faco of worthy aspirations by the gusts of reaction, nor wrenched from Its hinges by reckless or Impatient hands." In reference to the various socialistic theories which have been advanced in tho United States to-day as a cure for social and political ills Mr. Barnes resd tho following statement by Mr. Hoover as to his position: "The whole of these various sorts of socialism are based on one primary con ception, and that Is, the productivity of the human being can bn maintained under tho impulse of altruism, and that ths selection of the particular human for hh most productive performance can bo made by some supor-lmposed bureaucracy. "My emphatic conclusion from all thoso observations Is, therefore, that socialism as a philosophy of possible human ap plication Is hanknipt. "Tho paramount husiness of every American t'-day Is this business of Unit ing a solution to these Issues, but this solution must bo found by Americans, in a practical American way, based upon American Ideals, on American phllo-' sopliy ot life."
