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.

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.
