Rock Island to put its Columbian
brand of evaporated milk on special
sale for 10 days, as noted in Borden
advertisement in this issue. Consider
ing that the price of milk 1b at Its
highest during the winter, this is a
blessing to all housewives.
We are told that 'Borden's system
begins at the farm with the cow. Bor

11,000 dairy farms In 11 states, and ev
ery cow is regularly inspected by
veterinarians employed by the Bor

these farms. Last year Borden spent
$215,000 for thee inspections alon.
Borden handled a billion and a half
pounds of pure, frewh milk from which
was made 30o,0n.'i,ooo cans of condens
ed and evaporated milk. Borden oper
