The Primrose is Built for Service
BOTH the reasons why you buy a cream separator
are met fully by the Primrose. 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, in ana taice a good look at it before you buy.

The Light Bearers of the Presby
terian church held a delightful meet
ing at the home of Mrs. F. B. Shopp
Saturday afternoon. , There was quite
a number of the children in attend
ance and a very pleasant afternoon
was spent in their studying of their
book of travels through non-Christian
lands, and at this meeting visited
Calcutta and the mission fields in that
vicinity and learning of some of the
work being done by the missionaries
located there, which proved very in
teresting and was very much enjoyed
by the children. After their study
the remainder of the afternoon was
devoted to various games and amuse
ments, which brought to a close an
other very pleasant meeting of the
Light Bearers.
Secures Four Wolves.
The wolf hunt which was held in
the vicinity of Mynard today was suc
cessful in securing four wolves as a
result of their efforts in the country
surrounding that place. This morning
when the hunters began pouring into
Mynard for the hunt it was at first
feared that war had been declared
but it was soon learned that the pesky
wolves were the only foes to be attacked.
D. A. R., Notice!
The D. A. R. w'il meet with Miss
Bernece Newell this (Monday) even

London, March 5. 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.
Saturday was the fifty-fourth birth
day anniversary of Mrs. J. B. Higley,
and in honor of the event she was
made the happy recipient of a very
pleasant surprise in the evening by a
number. of her friends and children.
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.
