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.
