Thomas McDonald, the most popular cream collector for Newman Brothers has retired from his situation and contemplates migrating to the north.
Orillia Times May 26, 1907 Rathburn
The artistic and massive butter factory which has been undergoing erection for the past six weeks is nearing completion.  It makes a great boon to this locality.  And will greatly lessen the slavish work of churning butter and peddling to the limited retailer.  The patrons will also receive a higher price for the butter as Newman Bros. manufacture only first class articles..  The cream is gathered, manufacture and put upon the best wholesale market for the small cost of 4 cents per pound.  Newman Bros. prepose giving a free picnic at the opening of the factory, in the course of a couple of weeks.
