From Our Near Neighbors TALKS AT ALAMITO DAIRY Billy B. Van, star In comedy, row play ing at tbe Orpheum, la also a star in the milk business and while there la nothing . In It for himself, he Is letting the people of Omaha know that he knows something about keeping milk sanitary from the time jt is produced until auch time as It reaches the consumer. Both father and grandfather of Billy T. Van were In the milk business in Hoi land and there he took his first lessons on sanitary production and sale of milk. JIo has now developed one of the most widely known and complete dairy farms and plants in New England. The Bl'ly B. Van dairy farm comprises 1.000 acres of New Hampshire land near Van Harbor and lying1 along the shores of Lake Sunapoe. a body of water having forty-five miles of shore line. Here he spends five months of each year looking after his dairy Interests. Jlere the men in his employ milk ninety cows, selling the milk at the summer resorts scattered along' the shores of the lake. His milk routes ore not covered by wagons, but in stead gasoline launches dally skirt the shores of the lake, delivering the milk at t the cottages, hotels and towns. Twenty Cents Quart. While Omaha people think they are par ing high prices for their milk, none of them pay anything like Bllty B.JVan gets for the.'nnilk that he sells. Far his. cer tified milk he gets amenta per quart and Is nnalile to supply the demand. For fifteen "years Billy B. Van haa been talking better m'lk and better methods for handling milk. He has, been playing in Omaha all week and each morning, in stead of lying tu bed and snoozing, he has been up with the sun and 'out to the dairies, watching- the production and treatment of the milk. In his mild and . kindly way offering suggestions. Tester day he spent a goodly portion of tho aft ernoon at the plant of the Alamlto Sani tary Pauy company's new plant at Twenty-sixth and Leavenworth streets, going there Immediately arter tha matinee. At the Alamitc Mr. Van did not attempt to deliver a locfire, but ho cave-the offi cer and employes a plain talk on milk and how to handlo and care for it. Ha spoke in the highest termB of the new Plant, saying, "It la ono ot the best I have ever visited and I have seen about all of them lt the I?nited States.'' Following the visit to the Alamlto plant, Mr. Van was the guest of the offi cers at luncheon and In turn they were .his guests at the evening performance at the Orpheum. ' Greatest Dairy Country. In his talk at the Alamilo, Mr. Van laid stress upon the fact that In his opinion, within a few years Nebraska and Iowa will comprise the greatest dairy country in the world, '-for here," he added, "you have yerylhlng that is neceeeary. You have tbe climate and the soli that will produce the feed; you have the water and the facilities for getting your products Into remote sections where stock raising may never bo profitable. However, you have got to build vf your herds and learn that It costs more 'to raise a grade ani mal than It dees 'to raise a scrub. Buy the beet animals that you can secure an! never. let the .strain run down. If you cannot afford to buy a herd of grade stuff on the start, then buy one anlma! at a time and keep on doing eo until you have weeded all of the scrubs- out of the herd." Mr. Van spoke at considerable length of tha importance of producing pore milk, asserting that In feeding: milk-producing cows as much care should be exercised in keeping them healthy as looking after the milk after It is taken from the cow and prepared for sale to the customer.
