JUST A WORD OF GREETING To the People of North Platte 1 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. ILjJWI We Want the Friendship and Loyalty of Our Own Home Town. X" The North Platte Electric Mills LEIGH C CARROLL, Manager GEO. H.
