vicinity of Boiling Springs, who are
bringing milk to the milk station
there, receive approximately in lump
sum the amount of $9,000 per;

the amount received approximates
$7,000 per month; at Grantham.;
$5,000 and at Barnitz. $ll,OOO.

twelve years ago was at low ebb.

until at the present it is one of the;
foremost industries, bringing in big i
returns in this part of the country. j

the milk at these places and runs
a train with ice refrigerators daily I
to Philadelphia from towns along
the way to Gettysburg and Shippens
burg. Owing to the scarcity of icc.'
they are establishing a number of
refrigerating plants. At present one
is being constructed at Brandtsville.
