There's a sort of "i can't be true feeling in the mind of a
farmer who owns a KEYSTON E Silo. It' such a novel
sensation to go, year in and year out, free^ from the usual
expenses for repairs and up-keep that this feeling of skepticism
is apt to last quite a while, especially if he has formerly
owned the ordinary wooden silo.
