have better opportunities than other separator
users to see which separators are most efficient and durable. That
is 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

Each yearin the United States and Canada alone,
farmers discard inferior separators and re
place them with De Lavals. They learn from
experience that so-called cheap separators are
wasteful and cosily at any price. They would
have saved money if they had bought a I)e

cash system means no collections or bad accounts,
thus giving the patron the benefit of this raising. In
return for which we ask that, all laundry be paid for
either before when delivered. .Many laundries
have raised prices, others have gone out of business
on account of marked advance in material, the oper
