WESTERN DISTRICT FACTORIES. THE CREAM QUESTION. The home separator still continues to make its way throughout tho district. Trv as they will. the factory managers cannot increase their whole milk supply, although every gallon of home separated cream means a further deterioration in the quality of their butter. There are so many suppliers who will not take tho necessary care of their separators or their cream. The latter, too, is often kept for tivo or three days, and in this weather tho result is fatal to the mak ing of a good butter.
