Heath in a repor t mad e public by the Department of Commerce . As a result of the in- crease in milk outpu t an d as a result of over-productio n of cheese, the price of milk to the farmer was re- duced. Th e cheese industry , which is the most important of the so-called \mil k industries,\ utilizes abou t one- seventh of the annual productio n of milk and fixes the price of milk to th e farmers . Thi s is essentially a n export industry, as two-third s of the output is sold abroad . At th e begin- ning of 1926 th e exporter s found themselves with large stocks of cheese on their hands . This situation was aggravate d by th e British coal strike and by conditions affecting deman d in othe r markets. The latter part of th e year, however, brough t much better conditions, due to low- ered prices for milk and for cheese and exports for the entir e yea r showed a substantia l gain over 1925. althoug h ther e was no increase in value. The outlook for 1927 is fav- orabl e to furthe r increases, but pre- war expert level? are not expected to be approache d durin g this period.

JULY 4. NEW FOREST ~~\ SYSTEM FOR ESSEX COUNTY Pablk Forests to Be Planted to Re - claim Waste Land — Supervisors Unanimously Adopt Program . Albany. June 21.—The board of supervisor s of Essex county by unani - mous vote has decided to spend $5.- 000 a year for ten years to establish a comprehensive, system of forestry in the county. The board spent more tha n six months studyin g the subject of reforestation with a view to mak- ing profitable use of large areas of idle, non-agricultura l land in the county. There are about 20U.00G acres of such land in th e county. Last yea r the boar d appointe d a forestry committee , consisting of Chairman Wait e of Crown Point and Messrs. Sullivan and Call. Th e com- mittre , after several months spen t in examinatio n of forest plantation s and consultatio n with the conservatio n department, at a special meetin g of the boar d held on June 10. reporte d that it was greatly in the interest s of the county to establish communal forests and to acquir e an d develop such lands; that the principal object to be conserved in the maintenance of these land s should be the sale of forest product s in aid of the public- revenu e an d the protection of the wate r supplies of th e people of th e county. It would also preven t dam - age to land s an d propert y from streams , floods an d erosion, and as - sist in re-establishing fertility of the soil an d provide home s for game an d fish. Th e committee also reporte d tha t ther e were many thousands of acres of land in Essex county partic - ularly adopte d to forestry that ar e now idle an d a loss to the whole community; tha t th e supply of wood an d timbe r will soon be exhauste d and tha t such wood and timbe r ar e of vital necessity to the people of the county and to their prosperit y in the near and distant future. Unde r the resolutio n adopte d by the board, the lands and forests to be acquired will be maintained, managed an d operate d for the benefit of the people of the county an d the net income paid into the genera l fund of the count y an d used only upo n order s from the board of supervisors . The land s and forests will be culti- vated in accordanc e with th e best principles of scientific forestry. Th e direct supervision of the coun- ty forest will be in th e hand s of the forestry committe e w-hich will in- vestigate all matters in connection with the acquisition of land an d at- tend to the developmen t of such lands by planting , cultivatin g and properl y caring for them . The resolution appropriated $50.- 000—$5.\v' 0 to be raise d this yea r and $5.\0 0 in each succeeding year up to and includin g 1936. Th e action of the boar d was taken under author- ity conferred by Section SO of the conservation law and section T2A of the General Municipal law, which provide tha t a county may acquir e by purchas e or gift, or take over land in its possession an d use th e sam e for forestry purposes . It ma y appro - priate mone y or issue bonds for the purchas e of \such lands for said pur- poses, to establish forest plantation s or for the care and management of forests. Conservation Commissione r Alex- ander Macdonal d an d Willia m G. Howsrd. superintendent of gtate for- ests, appeare d before the board, and Mr. Howard discussed th e advantages tha t migh t be expected from the re- forestation of idle land and told wha t the state was doing to encourage ?uch use by supplying plantin g srork from its nurserie s fr-e wher e the youn g tre-e* *':- to b fc plante d on publicly owned land- He also point- ed out that -f 2^0.0'\'' acres of '.and in Essex county suitabl e for reforest- ing, only about fiv* per cen* had \hus far been plan:- d A sin.ilar p'.ar* f^r --ounty forest? wa* adopted by Ot=ego county *h;s year and E r - -ounty ha? appointe d a committe r to -on?ider the question of county fore.'-?
