printed a telegram from its St. Peters

immediate resignation cf Secretary of

monetary profit to some people. The

but it immunizes against tuberculosis.
Cures come within a few weeks. Of

has cost us $500.00 a year for fuel,
coal costing us $7.30 delivered, as
the creamery is located ten miles
from town, $2.00 per ton of the cost
being for cartage.
The gasoline engine is also much
handier, as it is always ready, and is
very convenient for stirring and cool
ing the cream in the evening. I wish
to add here that the skimmilk was
heated with live steam. It takes a
very small amount of steam to heat
the milk. When I have got up steam
in the morning I ha\e to put in a
couple of shovels of coal and close
both damper and drafts and have
enough steam to heat 4,000 pounds
of milk, so it takes very little steam
for this purpose.
We are going to keep our steam
engine and, if something should both

gine is there ready to do the work.
Our engine will more than pay for
itself the first year, and I would ad
vise any creamery that has to pay
over $5.00. a ton for coal, besides
probably having to haul it a long dis
tance, to'investigate the gasoline en

The directors got so convinced
that it would be a good investment
for the association that they pur
chased a 6 H. P. gasoline engine at a
cost of about $200.00. It was in
stalled October 10th, so we have used
it four weeks, and it has not given us
the least bit of trouble. The separ
ators run just as even in speed as
they did with the steam engine.
One week before the gasoline en
gine was installed I weighed the
coal used for that week, and we used
1,725 pounds of coal, at a cost of
$6.38 to the association. The first
week we had the gasoline engine the
coal was also weighed, and we used
640 pounds of coal, costing $2.37,
and a little over six gallons of gaso
line, costing $1.25, making a total
cost of $3.62 for the week, or a sav
ing of $2.76 for one week.
