The stockholders of the Spring Brook Co-operative Batter & Cheese Co. of this village held their annual meeting for tbe election of directors for the coming year at tbe creamery Tuesday morning. The following W ere elected: J. M. Porcell, 8. R. Bush, F. M. Danforth, W. P. Sullivan tad Jobn H. Kershaw. This practic­ ally insures tbe election of tbe pres­ ent efficient officers and a contin­ ence of the present prosperous con­ dition of tb e company. The year just closed bas been a very prosperous one fo r the stock­ holders, as wel l as one of goodly sited dividends for the patrons. The stockholders have made a profit of 20 per cent on tbe capital stock the past rear, which is tar ahead of any like institution in these parts, and the way milk and oream is coming in at present, and witb a continuance of the same officials, should show a lareer increase another year. A glance at the secretary's book shows tba t tbe company started witb s capital stock of $3500, and the total cost of tbeir property to date is |6,g65.17. The differenc e has all been paid oat of tbe profits of the com­ pany, besides several dividends of 10 per cent, tbat bave been declared. Tbe company Is now entirely out of debt and has cas h on hand to declare another dividend soon. This i s a re­ markable showing, when yon take into consideration that co-operative companies aronnd us bave been run at a loss and some were finally forced ont of business. Last year was the only ooe i n which tbe local company showed a loss.
