AKAROA BUTTER FACTORY.
COUNTY CRUSHER USED.
On Tuesday morning the Akaroa Butter Faotory was unable to use the Borough electric power and £40 worth of cream seemed to be in a fair way to be ruined. The Akaroa County Council's engine was sent for from Duvauchelle's and linked up to drive the machinery. The machine has proved a great success and no cream was spoilt, the butter being made in plenty of time. Everything is run ning in splendid order and the engine will be used for a week or so till tbe factory's own engine can be used. The factory's new engine is in position, but the cement bed is too green yet for use. Yesterday morning tbe crusher engine was used to churn fortytwo boxes of butter. The supply of cream keeps up marvellously weil considering the dry WBather. Tho weekly output is 75 Stelb bdttieif butto. ~: '
