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 DE LAVAL 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.
If you are thinking about buying a cream separator wo will
consider it a favor if you will permit us to set up a DeLawil for
you on your own place and have you give it a fair trial.
You will be under no obligation to buy the machine if it does
not make good all our claims, and should you decide to keep
it and cannot convenietnly pay cash, you may do so on such
easy tertnR that it will actually save its costs while you are
paying for it.

A Mid-night Fire
At Camp Funston
Tuesday morning Major Fisher in
spected the Fourth platoon of this
company and stated that it was the
best in the second battulion of this
regiment. Since th.1t time the plat
oon hus been drilling and studying
preparing to drill against two other
platoons of this regiment for first
honors at Camp Funston. At present
the regiment holds the record of. being
the best in this camp.
It hus been too cold too drill and
the Lieutenants have been giving us
lectures every day.
On Thursday Captain D. M. Heard
took charge of the company as Cap
tain Fisher, who had been in conuyand
of the company since it wus organized,
took up his duties us Major of the
Second batallion of this regiment. The
company were sorry to lose Captain
Fisher but were glad to see him ad
vance. The new Captain has had con
siderable military experience and ap
pears to thoroughly understand the
duties of his present office.
It becamo the duty of the company
to water the mules one day this week.
At eleven o'clock Friday night we
had fire drill. Every soldier was
obliged to pack up his underwear,
mess kit and shoes and put them in
tjie barrack bag. Alsovtic up his
poncho and bedding and carry Them
with his rifle out of the building when
tlie alarm was turned in. The rations
for two days 'were taken, out of the
kitchen and hauled around the block
byjthc men of the supply train. There
welt; two men on each wagon who
drove the two span of mules. Each
company had a runner who Jiad to re
port at the headquarters building and
one who ordered the wagon. At
twelve o'clock the recall was sounded.
Then we returned to our barrackH and
retired for the night. Before the fire
we retired in our uniforms and over
Saturday morning the company
went out northwest of camp where
we spent the morning digging
trenches. The ground contained much
rock and wo were compelled to use
picks and crowbars much of the time.
This week each one of us received n
helmet and slcvclcss sweater from the
A. I). McAllTIIUIl.
