Importance of Pure Milk.
If cleanliness is next to Godliness,
then its opposite must be akin to evil
and the origin of many physical ail-
ments. What api>ertains to the out-
ward man is of less Importance than
that which enters into his stomach.
The microbe is an enemy to the physi-
cal organism of man; therefore it be-
hooves man to see to it that as few
of them as possible are allowed to
enter into his system. This mischeivous
mite lives, moves and han Its being in
filth and dirt, but it has not the
slightest objection to being introduced
into better quarters. It thoroughly en-
joys a milk diet and thrives and revels
in an environment of rich cream.
Impure water is the origin of dire
evils to both man and beast. It breeds
disease; has been known to inoculate
the unfortunate with typhoid, diph-
theria and scarlet fever. If it is the
part of wisdom for the farmer to make
sure that the water he drinks is pure
and uncontaminated, why not also for
the animals under his care; more es-
pecially the cows—the sources of hjs
milk supply? Impure water will make
an unhealthy cow, unhealthy milk will
make unhealthy the person who uses it,
an unhealthy person will be an un-

happy person—if the germs do not kill
him—and an unhappy person will make
all around him unhappy. Moral—give
the cows pure water to drink.
A good milker is a clean milker. He
goes to his task with clean hands. He
makes sure that the cow's teats are
clean; that no dust or dirt is sticking
tq her sides and the hair underneath
her body—no extraneous matter is al-
lowed to find its way into the milk.
He sees to it that the cow's tail is,
either tied up or that it is not allowed
to switch dust, dirt and straws into
the milk pail, and that the milk is
not allowed to stand where it will as-
similate all the odors of the stable and
barn yard before being carried to the
dairy. Much depends upon the milker.
A great deal can be done with the
strainer, but it cannot keep out what
has been allowed to dissolve into min-
ute particles in the milk.
The dairy worker should make
cleanliness a hobby. The receptacles
for holding the milk, whether of the
more modern "creameries" or the old
fashioned milk ipans, should be as
sweet and clean as it is possible to
make them. They should be washed
in good soapy suds, a little spirits of
ammonia or washing soda is capital,
and thoroughly scalded in hot water,

are going to be added to the big army of more
than 600,000 users of
during the year 1905.
The all important profit-earning, time-saving need of the
Cream Separator is now universarily recognized by everyone.
As between different separators the De Laval is the original,
and has for twenty-live years led in centrifugal separation.
Would-be imitating machines simply utilize the construction
which expired lJe Laval patents leave free to them. New patents
still protect modem improvements.
The St. Louis Exposition gave the Grand 1'rize (very highest
award) to the De Laval Separators and three Grand and Gold
Medal prizes to its inventors and improvers, while the Grand
Prize and Gold Medal butter exhibits were all De Laval made.
A catalogue and any desired particulars are to be had for the

SOME TRUTHFUL STATEMENTS ABOUT
CREAM SEPARATOR AWARDS
We now offer the following amounts to ge given in premiums to any Stale Dairymen's Association if
ents are not correct, provided our "Would-be Competitor" will give the same amounts if our stateme
The shouting of our "Would-be Competitor" reminds us of the old story of the running thief who, in his efforts to
direct the attention from himself, ciied louder than any one else, "Stop thief," but it will not work this time, for he is
known too well in the Rogues' Gallery.
Our "Would-be Compe itor" flatters himself that he is the ' Only can on the ash heap," and we are perfectly will-
ing to concede him that distinction, for that is appropriate to his station am-1 methods, but when he claims to be the
"Only pebble on the beach"—that is too clean for him, as there are other pebbles much cleaner and brighter.
"Our Would-be Competitor" is continually misrepresenting and bluffing, in order to detract attention trom the
merits of the case. We have repeatedly offered to forfeit large sums of money if our statements are not correct, provided
they would give the same amounts if our statements are correct We know that our statements are correct. We know
that our "Would-be Competitor" has continnually made false claims.
if the following
Competitor" will give the same amounts if our statements are correct.
That there was 110 test of cream separators made at the St. Louis Exposition. That the claimed awards on creatn
separators at the St. Louis Exposition are among some of the worst scandals at that Exposition, which is now becoming
noted for its scandals and grafts.
That in the four different months' scorings of Dairy Bulter at the St. Louis Exposition, every highest score was
given to the United States Cream Separator Butter.
95, OOO. OO
That the United States Cream Separator made the world's record for the most thorough separation of cream
from milk in the Model Dairy at the Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo in 1901, beating our "would-be competitors"
and every other Separator that dared to enter that contest.
That the United States Cream Separator was awarded a Gold Medal at the Pan- American Exposition, 1901.
That the United States Cream Separator was awarded a Gold Medal at the Paris Exposition in 1900.
That our "Would-be Competitor" did not receive a Grand Prize or any other prize at the Paris Exposition, accord-
ing to the official list. They have admitted this in the papers in days gone by, and have tried to-palm off a fac-simile of a
certificate awarded an insolvent concern, which they got possession of by purchase or some other way, but this is too
transparent deception for the public to swallow.
That the United States Cream Separator received the Highest Award on Separators at the World's Fair Chi!
cago, in 1893.
That the United States Cream Separator has whipped our "Would-be Competitor's" Separator at every Inter-
national Exposition where both were exhibited and contests have been held.
That many hundreds of prominent dairymen who formerly used our "Would-be Competitor's" Separators have dis-
carded them for the United States Separators.
We quote from our "Would-be Competitors" advertisement, and make the same offer:
"TO EVERY DAIRY FARMER
Furthermore we pledge ourselves to pres nt one of our latest $100 machines to every fair-minded dairy farmer hav-
ng use tor a cream Separator, to whom any one can show facts proving that the above statements are not absolute tru h
and that any one lias not viciously lied in ever asserting anything to the contrary."

All this applies to the churn, the cream %
kettles, buttle bowl, ladles, etc. The
shelves of the milk room or dairy
should also be kept thoroughly clean;
should be scrubbed or scoured very
otten that no odor of spoiled milk
grown rancid be allowed to taint the
milk. Clean, sweet, wholesome milk
and butter, providing all the foregoing
ideas have been carried out, and I am
positive that most consumers of milk,
cream and butter will agree with me,
especially the mothers who have to
raise their babies on "milkman s
milk" that nothing in the line of food
products is of more vital importance
than the purity and wholesomeness ot
milk and cream.—A. W. W., in Wis-
Graded Milk and Cream.
So far as we know, it was Professor
Fraser of the llinois experiment sta-
tion that first suggested the grading
ol milk and cream for city use. We
♦idieve this is a thing to be desired.
The farmer that sells cream to city
people has little conception of just
what kind of a cream he should send
to market. There is no standard. He
may send such a thin cream that he
loses his customers or he may send
such a thick cream that he may keep
his customers, but bankrupt himsell.
It would be well to have a standard
for the different kinds of dairy prod-
ucts put on the market, and let the
buyer pay accordingly. If. he wants
cream that is twenty per cent hutter-
tat, let him have it, but if he wants a
cream that is thirty per cent pure
butter fat, let him pay fifty per cent
more for that than for the cream that
contained only twenty per cent. Just
now the farmer is really receiving pay
about a twenty per cent cream,
but he frequently sends a cream that
is fully 30 per cent in richness. Un-
der a system of graded cream he
would receive full pay for such
Ho not allow the cow to have cold wyter

killed by drinking too heartily of cold
water too soon after tiie calf comes.
