he had found that nsuiillj a cow will

of live weight, and one pound of grain
to three and one-half pounds of milk if
the milk tests under font ; if higher, one

He showed how money lould be saved
by increasing the ouality of the hay and
decreasing the higher pined high pro

cheaper to mis the for d on the farm than
to buy ready mixrd l'i ed and said it
was much belter to know Just how the

"Milk Production and Consumption"
was the subject taken by C.eorge F. H.
storey of the Worcester County farm i
Bureau After speaking for a few mill-
utefi on the value of pure-bled sites. Pio- I
fessor Storey said "Which is fhr more '
important the hreding or the feeding
of cattle'" That is a hnrd question to i
answer, for while it uoc not pay to teed
h poor cow well. It also docs not puj
to feed good stock puortj.
"i think perhnii.- the greatest fault In
tho dairy hithlness to-day Is the 1'nct that
hiisine.ss niaiiiigemenl of the herd is sel
dom considered You freouentl.v find
people in the butter section raising herds
that an- not butter hcids, and then hi
the milk sections you Hnrl men raising
butter herds, You should study the mar
ket and produce what tho market de
mands. Then some people aro getting
the same price for cream alone as their
neighbors are getting for the whole milk,
nnd they have the skimmed unlU left for
thelt Ftork
"Thcre Is much less stock in Xew Kng
land now than there has been in some
time nnd the time Is ripe for the man who
Is running a nursery There seems to bo
a tendency for people to produce milk
or cream regarrilcssly and tn trust to
Trovldcnee Tor the market. It is of the
marketing ot milk that 1 want to talk
o-day. It took several jears for the
'acts about milk to reach the consumer,
for we had been directing all of our ad
vertising energy toward the milk pro
ducer We have been talking to ourselves
about people nnt uslmr milk, enough and
of course it amounted to nothing. AVu
should have been reaching the people
who were sending their children to srhnnl
without ouy breakfast or were giving
them beer, tea and coffer and a -Hub
bread for brr.akfa-t We havi always
in idered mill; a -.hildren'F think. Now
ne itolUe ut is a manN dilnk and men
arc not ashamed to dritil; tt because
they have learned its value."
Professor Ston y told ol what ,.s ticll.K
done In Worcester. He spoke especially
of the value of the exhibits m the schools
and of giving the children free booklets
on milk lo taku home, of having posters
and placards everywhere. "All this." ho
t-nld. "Is creating a demand, making t he
people want milk. It Is up to the producer
to set the milk lo the lonsuincr .mil to the
hoard of health to see It is kept up to
standard .Much rlepuids on the riuality
of the milk, for If a man is Just beginning
to drink milk and he gets srune that is
Just tKglnnlg to tuin he wants no inou
of It '
Ife told how i: was introduced Into tho
s'eel taclorles of Wotcester and now 20
factories ate selling milk to their em
ployes twh e a day In the schools this
is also done and the children have In
ri eased In weight anil do better work and
are much Improved mentally and physi
cally "Milk 1i--.ii great stimulating value
and a food value we llttlo reali.i-,"
he said Professor Storey also told how
the clown. Cho-Cho, was itired lo coino
to Worcester for a week and give the chil
dren health talks and of how much good ho
did as the chlldien unit-inhered everything
he said. This campaign in Worcester in
creased tho mill; demand fi.uoo ipiarts.
"Let us get busy and help develop the
demand,' he said, "let us go out and sell
milk, advertise It You can get every
health anil public uiganUatloii to sign
your advertisements and that Is Hue of
no other food. The cost In advrttislng In
Worcebter was thirty cents tor $100 and
that amount of advertising increased tho
consumption M quarts, and mnio than
that, nut onco since the campaign has
theie been an attack on milk bp any of
the papers,
"There is also developing a spiiit of
falrmlndednesH. If the people know they
are being charged a fair price, Ihoy will
not kick at It. Let us help Hie sale of milk
and y to doing help the hralth of the

and Charles F. Putinton of this city
were the speakers, air Purinton's te
inarks wore irrj' brief and he related
some of his experiences In boiling shal
low and deep vats of sap.
Governor Clement In his address lit ceil
the necessity of the strictest ecenomv In i "he-half
tho conduct ot the State's affairs If
some of the smaller places would not be i
actually bankrupt. Ho said that the slo-
gnn "Something to Tax" had been used 1

t lh.it is the only way a bill can be gotten

' detail, showing the system of accounting
j which is patterned like that of a large
busiiuv-s corporation. "The system of
accounting. I believe, for simplicity and
efllclettry is not equalled In .New Kng
laud." said thn (iovornor. "There Is no
more business passing through the
State's boo'ks without audit. Theie has
been some criticism of the manner In
which the tate highway money has been
expended, but even these certificated are
carefully audited before being paid."

Prof Lockwood took fur his subject
the "Market Milk Ruslness." Ho traced
its growth from the earlv days when
somebody started it by selling his milk
lo the neighborhood, thiough tie stage
whore one man supplied tho community
to the present day with Its complicating
problems.. In Roston. lo-daj. Ii is es
timated that J.'.Ofm.tmo Is invested in tho
business of distributing the milk and
JiO.tVKl.fini N invested in the production.
Milk is matki-tcd from a distance of more
than 37) miles and of all the milk pro
duced in the I'nited Stn'tes practically
goes Into .market milk. Tho
rest goes Into butter, cheese, condensed
milk and other pioducts. With the rapid
growth of tho cities the marketing or
I milk baa become a greater and stll'
greater business Professor .Lockwocl
I reviewed some of the problems which
I face the distributor Then- is the hot

cents nn the grand list per vear. After I lir:'s k -vour nropeny ciiwusu uui ns i
the annronrlatlonK h.-ol .-.II he'ei. cherk.-il !the milk botHc It in stolen, broken, and

wlio takes the milk around In tho city of

The speaker then reviowed tin activi
ties of the health departments in the
siipotvblon of milk. Milk Is the most
Important food for millions of people
and the !i,K30,(KO cowa which produce mtir
Ktl milk In the country may tie called

method la to all put In together, the pro

been done in one city which he knew,
with the result that the consumption has
been Increased 15 per cent. After all,
the supply and demand part is the Im
portant one, so far as the business end
goes The speaker showed no tendency
to avoid tackling tho big problems In
milk marketing and his address showed
much experience and study of the illf
