and her sister were dressing. A few
minutes later two supposed women
left the tent. Or." had a waterproof
coat on and a shawl over her head and
a bucket on her arm. The guard look

suspicions were aroused and the two

And learn how good :t seems to use a milk

You'll Find Out This
You will f.nd that Van Camp's gives to milk
dishes a richres r.d flavor which milkman
milk never gives. Ar.d it isn't an added richness.
Van Camp's ii simply the whole, r.ch rr.dk, as it
comes from the cow. Nst an atom of anything
added. Nothing but water taken out.
The difference is this: Milkman's milk separates
The butter fat rise3 and the sc'iis fail. When that
milk comes to the cocking it is rarely more than
a half milk.
Van Ccmp's is the

The milk fresh from the cows is put into a

WIiti reduced to the usual milk's richness the
cost will figure about six cents per quart. The
