Effington Creamery Accepted
Tne Effington Co-operative
Creamery Company held a meet
ing at Effington, on Tuesday,
and formally accepted the new
building and machinery. The
building was erected by J. W.
Hoy, of Minneapolis, who also
installed the machinery, which'
is of the latest and most up-to
date pattern. The contract price
of the new creamery, complete,
was exactly $3,000, and the far
mers and business men of Effing
ton who compose the company
feel that they have received full
value for their money. The new
enterprise was promoted by Mr.
Hoy, ably assisted by Elias Mon
son, John Loken, Nets Beito and
Joe Class, and the success whicn
0 far has attended the venture
is due in a large measure to
these gentlemen. Gilbert Olson,
of Kinseth. Iowa, who is a but
termaker with an excellent rec
ord and long experience, has
been employed to take an active
management of the creamery,
which will begin operations
about June 1.
