By comparison we find that the average price of cheese through 
the year ban been nine cents, and butter thirty and one-third cents. 
The highest price paid for cheese at Utica, New York, was thirteen 
and five-eighths cents; at Little Falls, thirteen cents; at Elgin, 
thirteen cents. In both oases the cheese was full cream. The 
lowest price paid at Utica was eight and one half cents; at Little 
Falls, seven; at Elgin, fie; and the Elgin product was part skims, 
while the other were full oreams. These comparisons are useful 
in thbt they show that while comparatively a small portion of 
Illinois is engaged in dairying, and that while a large portion of 
of the milk from that section is used asan article of food in its 
natural condition, Illinois holds a proud rank as a butter and oheese 
produeing state.
