We wish to announce to our friends and patrons that
we aro now located In our new Factory Building on east
Front streot, built for your health's sake sanitary from
top to bottom.
Also for your health's sake wish to call special atten
tion to the sanitaiy condition of this plant.
Wo have spared nothing that might add to the cleanli
ness of this factory for your protection and that of your
We acknolwedge having the only sanitary soda wator
bottling plant in the State, built exclusively along sanitaiy
We also acknowledge having moro sunlight and venti
lation than any other bottling plant in tho State.
Aro tho only plant in tho State having hot and cold
water connections on three floors.
Only plant having three floors. For flushing and
scrubbing we aro able to turn hot or cold water on any
floor in the building.
Special toilet and wash room for employees, some
thing unknown to majority of plants.
Our distilled Water department has been provided with
cement floor, special window for ventilating this room,
built exclusively for distilled water and our Sanitary Water
Still endorsed by the U. S. Government.
A visit to our plant will enlighten the most skeptical
of the condition in which Star Pop is made.

the Star on the bottle, for your health's sake costs no
moro than others put up under unsanitary conditions and
pushed off in somo cases bottles not bolng sterilized, cheap
and inferior extracts being used.
We never could havo built our business to the present
magnitude and give you tho best factory in tho State, by
selling the dealers cheap and inforiorgoods and pushing it
off on the unsuspecting pubjio by lelling them they have
something just as good. The sooner the public speak out
and demand these different goods of value, the. sooner you
will eradicate the unscrupulous manufacturer and dealer.
We feel grateful to tho people of North Platto for their
support and loyalty for without your support we know we
could not havo built this up-to-date plant of which we aro
justly proud. ,
We may not have agreed with all of you at all times
but we assure you our heart is for tho best interest of North
Platto and surrounding country for which wo always work
and stand for, .and to you, knowing me personally, you are
aware of this fact.
We want you to feel you aro ono of this institution
and the dealer or manufacturer that is all self, never lend
ing a helping hand where ever possible, will not get very
far in this glorious old world of ours.
