CREAM STATION OPEN
Our new cream station Is now open ready for busness. Mr. II. W. Rhodes of
Durant, has consented to help us get started. Mr. Rhodes spent a number of years
in the cream business up in Iowa where everybody sells cream and everybody has
money. In cool weather everybody here tries to sell butter Market glutted, price
goes down. Isn't it more pleasant to drive up to a Cream Station where you know
your product is always wanted, than to "Peddle around" begging a market Tor butter.'
We leave that to you.
Mr. Dunlap, County Farm Agent, says a Separator will pay for Its self in 12
months over hand Bkimming, with as many as five cows. Hut for a start, bring in
hand-skimmed cream. Sure we buy It hand Bkimmed. Hurry along, twice a week is suf
ficient. We will have separators for sale on easy weekly or monthly payments.
There will be milk cans for sale in Durant shortly. In the meantime use new
clean lard cans. Use Bcalding water liberally on everything your milk touches.
Cleanness counts in the Cream business.
The Cream business is new to a great many. Don't condemn it, neither expect
it to rain money, but give It a fair trial. You understand prices will fluctuate some, up
a few cents or down a few cents, but all Indications point to a good price all fall and
winter. We will post leleprams over door of the station showing prices, dally.
No matter what has been your experience with any other cream station,, don't
judge this one until you have given it an honest fair test.
