The promoters of this Prospectus, in introducing it to the public, wish to draw ittention to the benefit to be derived from the establishment in the County D f Ashburton of Cheese and Butter Factories. (1) By the factory system the cost of manufacturing would be considerably lessened, and the consequent profit arising therefrom give a greater return to ill interested, and by reason of the uniformity obtainable, a greater demand also for the manufactured article, at an increased value, would be the result. (2) Farmers, by selling their milk to the Company, will receive payment in cash, and consequently be in a position to purchase their goods at the store on a cash basis, which will not only be advantageous to themselves, but will also materially assist to place trade generally throughout the County on a soundei footing, and will likewise find an outlel for the butter and cheese made, which ai present farmers and storekeepers have * great .difficulty in doing. (3) It would be the means of opening up a steady paying market for the pro duce which at present —during som< portion of the year—will barely mee working expenses, and ships now being fitted with refrigerating apparatus, com bined with the prospect of direct stean communication at an early date with th Old Country, warrants the promoters ii anticipating and offering such an outlet. All further information desired can b obtained from the Secretary or any c the Directors. Application forms for shares will b issued in a few days. S. E. POYNTZ, 9680 Interim Secretary.
