When a Man is a
When he has no confidence in himself nor his fellow men.
When he values success more than character and self-respect.
When he does not try to make his work a little better each day.
When he becomes so absorbed in his work that he cannot see
that life is greater than work.
When he lets a day go by without making some one happier and
more comfortable.
When he tries to rule others by bullying instead of by example.
When he values wealth above health, self-respect and the good
opinion of others.
When he is so burdened by his business that he finds no time for
rest and recreation.
When he loves his own plans and interests more than humanity.
When his friends like him for what he has more than for what
he is.
When he knows that he is in the wrong, but is afraid to admit it.
When he envies others because they have more ability, talent or
wealth than he has.
When he does not care what happens to his neighbor or to his
friend so long as he is prosperous:
When he is so busy doing that he has no time for smiles and
cheering words.

Since early this spring, meetings
have been held at different places
in the neighborhood with the inten
tion of' organizing a co-operative
creamery, and with a showing so
good that success seems assured
in the near future.
At the meetings and between the
different meetings sixty three farm
ers' names were secured with a
total of four hundred and seven
cows. As shares were ten dollars
each and each share holder took
but little over two shares on the
average, the total amount was still
below $1400, and as this is far be
low the amount needed to build a
creamery, the meeting broke up
last Wednesday evening in Roseland
without anything definite decided
upon. At this meeting however it
was decided to build the creamery
midway or as near as possible be
tween Prinsburg and Roseland.
This will help those who try to
further the movement as they will
know where it will be situated.
These meetings have brought out
these facts: "Thatthe cow end of
a co-operative movement", as Mr.
Sorenson told us at one of our meet
ings should receive some notice.
There are a few that show a lack of
interest in a creamery and if we
follow those home we will find as a
rule a lack of interest in the cow. We
know we must have cows to keep
up our farms and so we keep them,
graze them on a worn out shadeless
pasture that should have been
rotated long ago, and in winter we
send them out to graze in the picked
corn fields with the soicy breezes
blowing all the way from Ceylons'
Isle across Ad. Peary's discovery.
But those as a rule who showed an
active interest in the movement
tend to their cows in a different
method than the first named, and
their cream bill or check shows a
difference also even under the pre-
Keal Estate Transfers.

sent uneconomic system of market
ing this product, which comes to
the distant creamery in such a
condition that real butter cannot
be churned out of it anymore, but
something like' 'Ole'' is still made of
These conditions must change. If
we must have cows let us take care of
them breed them to a sire of good
milk strain and use a tester so we
can keep the heifer calves from the
best milkers. Let us as neighbors
co-operate to secure this end. One
farmer cannot for a few cows buy
a good sire, but if a few get to
gether this is comparatively easy.
Let us get more in touch with
each other this coming summer on
this topic and remember Mr. Soren
son when he said "I would like to
have a man show me how a co
operative creamery can be a failure
if you all bring your milk or cream
and in a first class condition
neighbors bringing it alternately
and abiding by the majority when
it comes to a vote," and he was
right. I think a successful co-opera
tive creamery is more assured now
than ever, for this reason that
we have not set organized, and
when we organize let us have
enough cows of the kind that will
help to keep a butter-maker busy
all day, thereby reducing cost of
running per pound of butter. While
cultivating corn this coming sum
mer let us also keep on cultivating
this co-operative—the word means
to act together—spirit and we will
find that by another winter we will
be better able to further this
movement and more capable of
running a creamery when once
started, the cow end remembered
in the mean time. Get ourselves
posted on what other neighborhoods
are doing in this direction and
when meetings are again held may
be more will be accomplished.
