There's cream slipping away every day in your dairy. Thousands of scientific tests have proven beyond question that 95 per cent of all hand driven separators are turned beloV speed a great part of the time. Every member of the family turns the separator at a different speed. If the speed is allowed to slacken, even for a moment, your separator will lose a lot of cream. THE NEW SHAKPUSS SUCTION-FEED Separator Cets All The Cream All The Time t The bowl draws in just enough milk to insure clean skimming. You can turn fast and ' get through quickly because the capacity increases with the speed. Your wife or daughter may turn slower according to their strength. The Suction-feed will always skim clean and deliver smooth cream of even thickness not thick today and thin tomorrow. There are no disks to wash only one piece in the bowl, simple as a "napkin ring. The supply can is only knee-high. You can empty heavy pails and cans of milk without strnining back or arms. Come in and see it for yourself. W. F.

Death who is no respecter of persons and who is not staid by breaking hearts has robbed us of a devoted moth er, a faithful friend, ant a loyal P. E. O. She was a woman of high ldfeals, a lover of young life and entered into their joys and problems with a sympathy all her own. She was loyal and un flinching in her friendships and principles, modest and retiring in her disposition, and to those who were privileged to know her best, loving and sympathetic. She was never too weary to open her home to us, seldom failed to attend our meetings. As a Sis terhood we rejoice that we have been priviledged to count her as one of us. Chapter "A" extends sincerest sympathy to , those nearest and dearest to ber. Death may cut short the tie that binds But "Sbe is not dead, tbe friend of .' our afection But gone into that school Where she no longer needs our poor protection And Christ Himself doth rule.
