:30 Thirly-second Annual Report of the laws to compel men to become prosperous, but such is the case. It seems that we have some unpatriotic citizens, men who are without shame, men who will take filthy milk to a creamery and dump it in with their neighbor's clean milk. It seems to be necessary to do something to compel such men to become better citizens, to be honest with themselves as well as with others. It is for us, the farmers of Wisconsin, to solve this problem; it is our duty to ask the state to provide means to protect us against this class of men, and we should go before the legislature and ask them to enact a law providing this state with a sufficient number of inspectors. We should see that our representative from eaeh district in the state is charged with that duty when he is elected. Let us stand by our dairy interests; they are of more importance to the prosperity of our state and our people than all other interests in the state. The biggest problem we have to contend with is how to reach the patrons. There will be lots of farmers in this section of the state who will not have interest enough, nor the courage, to come out to these meetings and listen to the truth, and they are the kind of men it is hard to get hold of. Recess to 1:30 P. M. AFTERNOON SESSION. Convention met at 1:30 P. M. The President in the chair. The Chairman: The Association is fortunate in having with us this afternoon and through our various sessions, a lady who has three claims to our interest and consideration: first, on her own account, and, particularly, on account of her great skill as an artist with the violin; and, second, she is the daughter of the Treasurer of this Association for nmany years; awid, third, she is the granddaughter of the veteran dairyman, whose name is known everywhere in the United States, Hiram Smith. Miss Katherine Loomis will play for us several times, accompanied by Miss Boyer.
