SOUTHERN WIS. CHEESEMAKERS' & DAIRYMEN'S ASS'N. 57
fine cheese than untidy cheese factories.  Not only that
which is outwardly apparent must be kept tidy, but every
corner must be kept so too or the flavor of the cheese will
tell tales of these neglected corners that the eye does not
perceive.
If the proprietors have good buildings, well fitted up,
and the makers keep these establishments neat and in first
class order, then I assert that the cheesemaker has a just
right to exact from every patron milk of good quality in
every respect, and to refuse positively any that is not so.
By acting differently they are unfair to those patrons who,
attentive to their duties, bring only good milk, for these
are made to suffer loss by the careless deeds of others.
Milk is either good or bad; if it is good accept it and credit
the patron with full weight; if it is bad, refuse it.
I have made use of this circumstance, not for the purpose
of venting any ill will toward any one but to show forth
the narrow minded meanness of those who have acquired
that habit of shifting responsibility on to others. They
seem to be incapable of appreciating the noble praise-
worthy motive to raise if possible the industry to a higher
plane of excellence, not for selfish purposes, but for the
general good of the community and consuming public.
