You can buy a month's surrly

And you have milk without

is pasteurized, has millions of
germs in every drop. Think what
it means to serve on your tabic
an utterly sterile milk. You will
never serve any milk but Van

Its Little Cost
This ideal milk, it is strange to
say, costs less than milkman's
milk. We save you the cost of
the daily delivery. And we save
you all the waste. In the aver

cuts milk bills right in two.
