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 tho DeLaval and will have no other. The 1 per
cent who do not buy the DeLaval arc those who allow
themselves to be influenced by some other consideration
besides real genuine separator merit.
If you aro thinking about buying a ercain separator vre will
conhider it it livvor if you will permit us to set up a Do I, mill for
you on your own nluco and hate you givo it a fair trial.
You vw ill bit under uu obligation to buy tho inaehiiif if it does
not mult i! good all our claims, and should you decide to keep
it and cannot couvuiiietnly pay cash, you may do so on Mich
easy terms that it rlll actually vivo its costs while you are
pajing for it.
