I have often been asked the question « Does daitylog pay V Yes, and anyone who may doubt It would be well convinced If he took a walk from Hampden to Mr Nicholson's farm, whloh Is situated about •> mile from the above railway station. A pleasantly situated farm, with extensive grsduß paddocks, well watered and grassed. Mr Nicholson has at present 36 cows In milk, giving on an average from 250 to 800 pounds of butter weekly. After milking, the milk Is pasted through one of O. de Laval's patent cream separators, working by centrifugal force, driven by a five-horse portable engine, capable of putting through ninety gallons per hour. I have teen several separators at work, but I think the above as good as any. It Is simplicity Itself, needing little skill to work It After the cream leaves the separator, It Is ready for tbe ohurn, thus doing away with the old method of standIng In pans — making the labors of the dairy much easier. Mrs Nicholson Informed mo that since the - ereotlon of the ■eparator she got at least a pound of batter more from each cow per week than by the old method. It Is Mr Nicholson's Intention to convert the water from the oreek Into driving power, thus doing away with th* consumption of fuel now used by the portable engine. The butter-milk Is given to the pigs and oalves, there being 60 of ths forms? and 20 of the .later. The portable engine also drives a ebaffoutter. — Ooneapoodsat of the North Otago Tlats.
