Word was received here tho latter

baby boy arrived at tho homo of Mr.
and Mrs. Bert Clark at McCook Saturday.
We have always dealt with our patrons in a
fair, square, open and above board fashion, ,
giving you the best possible price for your
produce and selling you goods at the lowest
possible margin of profit.
We believe in "putting all the cards on the table"
Our competitors have advanced the price of
cream five cents above the station price in
order to attract attention to this particular
item, using this as a bait to get your business
coming their way after which the price can
easily be adjusted to normal.
We pay you as much as you can get any where
By mis-leading advertisements you might be
lead to believe that our competitors are pay
ing more for your produce than theJFarmers
Union, but this is not true-WE POSITIVELY
PAY YOU AS MUCH AS ANYUODY and
what profit we make is paid back in dividends.
It is a splendid idea for the farmer who has
had any differences occur in his tests, to
weigh his cream before he takes it to a station.
It is possible for an advanced test to be given
by deducting from your weight, which is very
misleading to the patron.
