following from the Arnold
Sentinel, tells of one of the
:e creameries that has been
in that locality and which
a real1 boon to the farming
interests of that locality and which
has the strong support of the resi
dents of that section of the state:
"The next issue of the Sentinel
will carry the announcement of the
opening date of Arnold's New Cream
ery, and from what we can see and
1ea.n1, we win suieiy uivc buihchuub
to be proud of, and something we
should lend an undivided support,
"Dick Baker, secretary and treas
day. and said, 'flt is certainly
pleasure to install an
building like this, as it is the
best creamery I have stepped into
for it's size.
"It has been several months since
the Peterson Company sent men into
this community to sell stock for a
home creamery, and the idea tool;
root immediately, and the stock was
sold in a little over a week. Later
Andy Wineburg landed on the job
as construction engineer, and since
that time work has oever hesitated,
and in a little over sixty days we
find a new creamery building has
been reared in what has been a
vacant ground for years; a building
of the finest construction, and one
that any individual or firm might
be proud to own.
"Now, Mr. Wineburg informs us
the building is complete, and in a
few days the machinery will be in
stalled and the opening date will be
announced in the next issue of our
paper, and as we noted above, now
is the time for not only those who
have invested their money in the
concern, but those who furnish the
raw product for its operation, to
boost it to a finish. This has always
been the attitude of Arnold people,
regarding anything that seems right,
and we predict that they will see to
it that Arnold's new institution goes
over the top."
