Three Cows and a Lily Equal. Five
1 Cows and No lily
VE are offering you trie Liljr cream separator be-
cause the Lily is the machine we believe in. lu
records and tents have convinced us that you can make
more money from three cows and a Lily than with five
cows and no Lily. That ought to interest you.
We believe in the sturdy, ample, sanitary deaigru lha
working of the few cloecly. grouped gears; the splash oiling
system that doean't fail; the one-adjustment feature which we
will explain later. v
Most of aP we believe in the Lily bowl, which gets all the
rrearn out ot the milk, down to about one drop in each gallon.
That's what counts.
Come in and ace this good cream separator.
