This {fact was the outstanding feature of a report made to directors, field men a'lad New York representatives, at a joint meeting held recently in St. Paul. Since organization began in June 1921, the association ha issued stock with a face va'lue of $19,000. Of this approximately $15,000, wa spent during the organization/period. An official audit showed/that this had been repaid out of rnings and that an additional $8,000 has been set aside as a surplus. The association has $2, 000 in assets, with liabilities of only $260 current bills not due at the time accounts were summarized. From June 26, last, until Sept. 1, during which period the association handled its first 300 cars of butter through its New York office, freight savings on concentrated shipments were $50,000. On corrections made on freight overcharges, the New York office saved member creameries $2,800, Hubert I. Stack, traffic man- ager, told the directors. This latter sum alone is enough to cover the ex- pense of the association's New York office. 1236 head of cattle in 40 The Audit convinced the directors, the largest association con-! every one of whom is a farmer as received at the market, l well as seasoned creamery manager, the feeder stuff was sold tel that association already is a financ- for $6.50 Packer !al success, despite the fact that it up ntil stock steers sold ]s just entering on the field it was and heifers brought $7. designed to covera higher quality of for feeders, all gra butter and a uniform product from unusuall- good, topping the l Minnesota's co-operative creameries.

Willies Good Memory A Sunday school teacher was try- ing to impress upon the minds of the children before eating. So turning to Willie, the minister's son, she asked him: "Willie, what is the first thing your father says when you sit down to eat ? She was very much shocked when Willie replied: "Touch light on the butter! It's fifty cents a pound."--: Judge.
