The first is to get all the cream with the least work; the second, to buy a machine that you or your wife can easily keep in operating condition, and that will skim closely for years. You know that there is nothing about a Primrose to get out of order. You know, too, that it has a splash oiling nYtm that takes care of every bearing, and that it is a clean machine no oil in the milk, and no milk in the oiL But the Primrote has some other exclusive features you ought to know tefore you buy any separator. For instance, at any position, the handle takes hold the instant pressure is applied, and lets gothe instant the pressure is taVen off. The spindle stays in the separator, where it belongs. When you place the bowl on the spindle, it centers itself automatically without any pounding and without trying more than once that saves the lower spindle bearing and prevents dangerous springing of the spindle itself. N j matter what separator question you bring up, you will find it fully answered by the rnnroc v,u.nc in ana taice a good look at it before you buy.

The Italian steamer Giava, torpedoed and sunk in the the Mediterranean, is believed to have been the first passenger-carrying victim of the new Austro-German sub marine campaign against armed mer chantmen. The Giava, an old steamer displac ing 2,631 tons, was owned by a Naples ship company and sailed from Leg horn, Italy, only a few hours before the new submarine decree went into effect, carrying several passengers. It is no secret that practically all Ital ian steamers, under orders from the naval authorities, carry armament to resist attacks by submarines. Athens dispatches tonight said the passengers and crew were rescued by British ships after spending twenty-four hours in open boats. Athens reported no Americans were aboard. MRS. J. B. HIGLEY CELEBRATES BIRTH DAY ANNIVERSARY Saturday was the fifty-fourth birth day anniversary of Mrs. J. B.

When the jolly company of surprisers entered her home and announced that they'Viad come to assist her in cele brating her birthday, she was sure some surprised, but was soon herself again and proceeded to make her guests feel at home after she had dis coveied who they were. This oc casion was in the nature of a mas querade, which made it very hard for Mrs. Higley to tell just who her guests were. Various games and amusements were introduced and entered into with much interest and enthusiasm by the guests, and which afforded them much pleasure and made the evening pass all too quick ly. At the proper time the merry company was invited to partake of a delicious birthday luncheon, which was most thoroughly enjoyed and to which all did ample justice. One of the features of this luncheon was a birthday cake, with the candle decora tions, which had been made by Mrs. Higley's oldest granddaughter, Miss Mable Cotner, of Omaha, and which was highly prized by Mrs. Higley. It was a most delightful surprise to Mrs. Higley and this happy event will not soon be forgotten, by her. At a late hour the guests, after wishing Mrs. Higley many happy returns of the day, departed for their homes, declar ing this birthday surprise to be a suc cess and that they had had a fine time. The out-of-towli guests were her son, Jack Elledge and family, of Council Bluffs, and her daughter, Mrs. Rhoda Homan and three daughters, Mabel, Hazel and Nellie Cotner, of Omaha. Her youngest grandchild, Baby Ell edge, was also present. WANTED TO BUY. Iron, Metals and Junk. 'Phone 434. II. Hankinson. 3-6-tfd Wagner's is where yen get every thing good to eat.
