The use of box cars has relieved the
car situation somewhat, but the diffi
culty has not been settled entirely on
this account for the scarcity of cars
is still felt in a number of localities.
But the main trouble has been that
where cars could be had orders were
slack. But later in the week it seemed
that there was a better inquiry from
out of town and the dealers here
would not be surprised to see orders
coming in more freely next week.
Some of the carlot dealers even go so
far as to say that prices have about
struck bottom and may do a little bet
ter before many days. It is certain
that the thing which has been lacking
to give snap to the market lately has
been shipping orders, for it does not
take long to make a dull market un
less orders are being placed.

With the unprecedented^ high prices for

to make the most profitable of all invest

as the cream saparator.
But some who should have a machine do
not have the ready cash and all may not un
derstand that this isn't necessary in the pur
chase of the best separators.
Others who have a small amount of cash are
tempted to put it into some trashy cash-in
advance machine because they cannot im
mediately command the full amount neces
sary to buy a DE LAVAL.
But there is no such necessity. More than
200,000 of the 600,000 users of DE LAVAL
