H- Nelson's Suit to-Recover $2,349.' A novel case has been on trial beforo 'Judge Keogh, in the Suprorao Court. W. H. Nelson, of tliis villagiv-brought suit to recover $2,349 from Parle J. White, recently manager of the Bar- tholdi Hotel in Now York city. Netoon made a contract to supply milk to tho Bartholdi Hotel. Ho has a milk depot at No. 210 West Thirty- fifth street,'New York, and from Nov. 1894, to r July, 1895, ho supplied the hotel with 7,444 quarts of milk, tho price ranging from three to four cents a auart. puriDg tho same period he supplied theHotel with 9,913 quarts of cream at 15 cents a quvrt. The amount claimed for the milk and cream was 81,879, tho interest on_this amount be ing $470. Whilo thore was no dispute asTto the amount of Nelson's bill. Mr. White claimed that ho was simply tho hotel manager, the hotel being run by stock ^company. Although tho bills \for th'e'milk were made out to the Bar- Mr. White\ was responsible for his bill, and that he made the contracts for tho milk, . Thp!jur.y took Ave hours to dotor mino the issues, and finally concluded that Mr..Nelson could not recover from .MJTj_Wbi|§i Nelson will probably tako the caso to the Appellate Division of the Supremo Court'.

In beginning ho said that until com paratively recent times a quart of milk was a quart, no matter how rich in butter, fats, or how poor in quality. It is still too often *ho case, but tho time is fast approachine when every pur chaser will insist upon quality and tho producer will havo to guarantee the quality to b2 uniform. That can only be done by keeping cows that will pro duce such milk and feeding them in a proper manner. The day of tho scrub cow.and unbalmed ration is fast pass ing away. Tho farmer must remcm- bor that'twenty cows well fed will pro- duco as much rnilU as thirty poorly fed. Thero is only one way of keeping up the desired quantity, by having fresh cows at \proper intervals They keep twenty-five cows at the Now Jersey Experiment Station and such is the uniform quality of tho milk that tho demand for it at eight conts a quart is far in excess of tho supply. Some foods upon the market sold at a low price aro of so little value as to bo very costly.
