We do not believe that a farmer who knows anything
about farm machinery could be induced to buy any separa
tor other than a DeLaval after he had seen the latest im
proved DeLeval machine and had given it a trial.
It is a fact that 99 per cent of all separator buyers who
do SEE AND TRY A DELAVAL machine before buying
purchase the DeLaval and will have no other. The 1 per
cent who do not buy the DeLaval are those who allow
themselves to be influenced by some other consideration
besides real genuine separator merit.
Xt you arc thinking about buying a cream separator w will
consider it a favor If you will permit us to setup a DeLaval for
you ou your own place and have you give it a fair trial.
You will be under no obligation to buy the moohtne if It does
not make good all our claims, and should you decide to kaep
it and cannot convenletnly nny'caoh. you may do oo oo each
easy terms that it' will actually. save iW" contV 'nulla j
paying for it.

At the morning session the commis
sion held that under the pleadings and
the law thete was but one thing to do
nnd that was to order the Lincoln
company to restore the toll connect
ions that it severed when tho tele
phone war at Itcd Cloud broke out
between the two companies. From
this the company will appeal, as it in
volves a question of whether en
forced physical connection is in con
travention of the constitutional pro
vision that prevents a person's prop
erty being taken from him without
due process at Jaw.

thafbody Tuesday ordered tho Lin
coln Telephone company to restore the
trunk line between its exchango at
Red Cloud and that of tho Farmers'
Independent company, a rival.

tered into a long timo contract with
tho Farmers' company when the Bell
was tho lattcr'B competitor at Red
Cloud by which tho Farmers got toll
lino connection with the Lincoln com
pany's system. When the Lincoln
company bought tho Bell, it had the
toll line run into its exchango at Red
Cloud and put in a trunk between the
two exchanges, in this way handling
all toll business out of Red Cloud.
