Three cows and a
Utu Li A V ALi separator
will make more money than
four cows with gravity setting
Thousands upon thousands of cow owners have already proved
this statement; any experienced dairyman will verify it for you.
With such a big savinR it is hard to understand why any cow
owner should try to Ret alonf, without n Do Laval Cream Separator.
If you aro scllhiR cream or making butter, and have no
separator, or else an inferior machine, we know if we could put
a De Laval on your place we would be doing you a personal favor.
If you haven't a separator don't make the mistake of starting
with a "cheap" or inferior machine. When you do buy n separator
ns sooner or later you surely will be sure to get the best thof
De Laval. Remember, you can't make money by trying to save
money In tho purchase price of n cream separator. A De Laval
costs only a little more than the cheapest and will save you twice
as much and last five to ten times as long as other separators.

Buying At Home
The olti.uns of this cciinminitt ,
whenever possible, as it invariably is
should buy the things that they need
from tho local liieichants. This is tho
spirit of Co-operation wliiih will help
tho town to grow and in time make It
bigger and n better insjiket place.
Wc don't want you to pay more here
for what you can get cheaper some
whoro else, but use your common sense.
You know that no man in a town n
hundred miles away can send you what
you oider by mail, pay thuuxpenoes of
his catalogues, and gt-t a prollt with
out charging you moic than your homo
merchniit. Hesidos, you have to wait
many days before you will get the mer
cliandlse ordeied, you will have to send
your money in advance and you will
run the lisle of being stuck
That is just plain every day common
sense; it's uot advice. Local mer
chants usually take a pride In hand
ling the best of everything while mull
order houses only hunt tho choapest
things they can sell. Whether they
last or not Is Immaterial you can't
sco thetu about it and they will uot
hoar you grumble, They can sell you
shoddy stuff cheap but your local mer
chant will give you goods thnt arc
standard at a reasonable price.
Boost Your Town
Of courso your town is a good town?
Prosperous, progressive and full of
good citizens. If you didn't think so
you wouldn't stay in It.
In chosing a town to livo In and to
work for, you should first decido on u
place whoro you are host suitod with
existing conditions and the outlook
for future devcloptnent, and with its
citizens your co-laborers. When this
decision is made you should "got busy".
You believe iu your town you must
see that It makes good.
Knockers there may be attracted,
no doubt, by tho good tilings boosters
have accomplished, but thero never
thelesswith their little hammers.
These knockers should bo converted if
possible, subdued If recalcitrant, or
boosted out if hopoless. You know
nothing will kill n knock like u real
live boost. Tho grass grows greener,
the crops arc more bountiful, the
smiles more plentiful, while you are
boosting. If you don't believe it, try
It once for luck and bo convinced.
uite likoly thero are Improvements
needed iu your town. Advocate and
work these but in the booster's way
not as a knocker. Tho one way wit s
friends, confidence, success. Thoothir
losi-s even your own self-respect.
If thero Is any good reason why you
cannot boost your town, in the name
of common sense remove tho reason,
or quit tho town. Go some place
where j'ou can boost. But nine times
out of ten when things go wrong it
isn't your town it's you. (let it tut o
boost. Don't drag your feet and gi owl
at the trail. (Jet out and push. Boost
the impediments from the track and
soon you will have a highway over
which success can run with you two
Plenty of Excitement.
"Poor laddio," said the lady to tho
hotel elevator boy, "don't you find this
work rnther trying nnd monotonous?"
"No fear, ma'am. I like it. It's full
of excitement. First of till, there's
always the funny people coming In
nnd out. Then there's other things.
"Only yesterday a man tried to' got
out before the elevator wns down nnd
cracked his skull. Then last week tho
machine broke, and the thing camo
straight down from the sixth lloor to
the bottom, and everybody was hurt
'cr-pt mo. This 'ere rope, too, looks n
bit weak, but It'll probably last till
we get up, though I don't know what
we'll do If It don't' cos tho engine mnn
is nwny 111 today, and 'is mate's just
married, nnd I'm In charge of every
thing and I don't know nothing about
It. So 11 ain't really what .ni could
