This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1919 edition. Excerpt: ...and shoes, of furniture, etc., are not making, in my humble opinion in the majority of cases, as good a product. as they know how to make but just as good as the public will accept, and at times taking all the trafiic will bear. I am aware I am treading on what some may class as dangerous ground, but I repeat again that creameries in general are not making as good a butter as they know how to make when they put in from 15 to 22 per cent of water or just as near the danger mark as they dare to go, to say nothing of other processes employed at times in utilization of unsound materials. The millers are not making as good a product, flour for example, as they know how to produce but a standardized product that the general public will accept and not complain of. Perhaps it is well, but such conditions and tendencies lead in the end to abuses such as an acquaintance of mine reported, a young chemist for a time employed in a so-called creamery for regenerating dairy products and furnishing butter for the public at a fancy price, when he was told that if he produced butter with less than 15.8 per cent of moisture he would lose his job, and if he got caught with butter containing too much water he must pay the fine. A fine standard in fancy butter-making for a young man to live up to. I would not insinuate that creamery men in general are all of this class. Far from it, but such men set the pace for all the rest and unless held in check, force all others to a like condition and such calls for courage and patience on the part of the food control officials in protecting the best interests of all parties.
