FCvery day for n vvtek 1 used,it, and not . oii'y could I churn in a minute but I got more ;nd better butur than vvjih the common churn. This is very important intormii.txm to butu-r makers. The churn works easily and will churn an or dinary churning in less than 6!)' seconds. 1 have sold two dozen of these churns in the past, months Every butter maker that has seen me churn in less than a minute has bought one.

A Dairy Man, The New Rook Spoon Free to All. I read in the Christian Standard that Miss A M. Fritz, Station A., St. Louis, Mo., would give an ele gant plated hook spoon to anyone sending her ten 2-cent stamps. I sent for one and found it so useful that I showed it to my lrieuds, and made lo. 00 in two hours, taking; orders for the spoon. The hao spoon is a household necessity. It cannot slip into the dish or cooking vtssel, being held in the place by a. hook on the oack. The ppoon is something that housekeepers bae needed ever since spoons were tirst invented. Anyone can get a gam pie spoon bv sending ten 2cent stamps to Miss Fritz. This is a. splendid way to make money, a round home. .Very truly, Jeannette S. S.3 lot Married.
