A creamery is one of the things that could be made a paying in- vestment at Crockett. Lots of fine milch cows, giving up some of the richest cream in the world, graze on the hillsides and meadows. A creamery would be a good thing for the farmer to invest in. It affords a market for the surplus products of the home dairy and brings dollars to the pockets of the farmers at a time when dollars are needed, and that time is all the time. Farmers in counties having less favorable conditions than surround the farm- ers bf Houston county have estab- lished creameries without the aid of an outside dollar and have been successful with them.

A little warning written years ago by a gifted woman, which is embodied in the following article written by Frances Shaffer for the Washington Star, will bear repeat- ing and may perhaps give many of us a new viewpoint of careless words spoken: It was George Eliot who once wrote to a friend: "That I was not good to you is my own disagreeable affair; the bitter taste of that fact is mine, not yours."
