Let it be sisseton this year. What Thomas Tompsön of Sisseton has to say about cream separa tors to begin with this year— Ninety-eight per cent of the world's creameries use DeLavals exclusively CREAMERYMEN have better opportunities than other separator users to see which separators are most efficient and durable. That iß why they select De Lavals. More De Lavals are in use on farms than all other makes combined. Time and experience have proved to a vast majority of farmers that no other separator gives as good ser vice as the De Laval. Each year in the United States and Canada alone, some 40,000 farmers discard inferior separators and re place them with De Lavals. They learn from experience that so-called cheap separators are wasteful and costly at any price. They would have saved money if they had bought a De Laval in the first place. If you will bear these facts in mind in select inga separator, you will realize that the wisest course is to buy a De Laval. We will be glad to bring a De Laval out to your farm and let you try it out and see for yourself that it does offer you the greatest' value for your money. We are willing to prove every claim we make for the De Laval. Just phone us or send a post card and we will see that you get an opportunity to try a De Laval. Sooner or later you will buy a DE LAVAL !il you hem- of "The New Minister'' coming to Sisseton? Coming to the Oper.i House Friday Jan. 19,8 p. m.
