Farmers and dealers war
Milk Is Delivered Direct to Consumers

ers as the price to the consumer has
been lowered from 6 to 5 cents a
quart.
Last fall Oshkosh milk men raised
the price. Farmers put. their heads
together and figured that during the
winter about all their horses did was
stand in their stalls and eat. In some
cases they “chipped in” and bought
a wagon, one peddling the product for
his neighbors.
Creameries paid the farmer only
about 3 cents a quart and they got 5
cents from their city customers. They
ar e working up good routes and are
well satisfied with the venture, claim
ing they are getting more money for
their milk, besides “showing up” the
city dealers.

The Chinese Varnish Made to
Walk Upon
MADE IN ALL COLORS
Cherry. Mahogany. Oak. Natural. Etc
For Floors, Bar Tops,
Furniture and General
Household Use.
Come tc our store and get a sam
ple of Chi-Namel applied to
wood. Take it home and test it
First. Strike the wood sample a heavy
blow with a hammer, and note that while
the wood may be indented a quarter of
an inch, the varnish has not marred or
cracked. This proves that Chi-Namel
is very elastic.
Second. Place the wood sample in a
tea kettle, and note that boiling water
does cot turn it white. This proves that
Chi-namel contains no rosin.
Third. Apply whiskey. This proves
that Chi-Name! will stand upon bar tops.
Fourth. Allow a can of the varnish
to stand open over night, and note that
there is no evaporation. This proves
that Chi-Namel contains no benzine.
Fifth. Spread varnish over flat sur
face, and brush in every direction, and
note “self levelling” effect. This proves
that all brush marks disappear, and the
result will be pleasing no matter how
inexperienced the applier may be.
Old floors can be made to look like new bard
wood.
No need to buy new furniture.
Cbi-Namel will make old furniture look
BETTER than new furniture.
TaL-e no substitute. We invite you to prove
to yourself there is NOTHING just as
good as Cbi-Namel. ’ ’
