JUST A WORD OF GREETING
To the People of North Platte
We have just completed the North Platte Electric Mills. Taking the framework of
the former mill for a basis, we have built a modern 150 barrel flour mill, up to the min
ute in every detail of its construction.
Our flour, the "COW BRAND," known wherever it is sold as the "QUALITY
FIRST" flour, needs no introduction to most of you. You have used it and have told us
you find it good. To those who have riot tried it, we say, just tell the man "Cow Brand"
next time you buy flour. There is a treat in store for you next lime you bake.
It is an honest flour, milled to give you the best that can be made from Nebraska
wheat, and permit us to assure you Nebraska wheat flour has never been bettered.
Every Flour Dealer in North Platte has Cow Brand for you.
We Want the Friendship and Loyalty of Our Own Home Town.
