Grading of Cream Urged By McGuire Pointing out that cream grading is the surest means of producing good butter, A. J.

"There is real competi- tion/' he says, "r the best markets ad if co-operative creameries are to hold such markets they must make good butter and see that it is sold as such.

The Directors of thia Company, realiz- ing that petroleum products are essential to the welfare of the community, are striving constantly to achieve an ideal of practical perfection in every product manufacturcd and sold by this Company. The result is, that wherever strains are severest, wherever the need is most intense, there will bc found products, devised by the experts of the Standard Oil Company (Indiana), to meet the conditions and re- lieve the situation. As an examplc of a product, which bears up under rather spectacular service tests, take Fortnitc Long Time Burner Oil for railway signal lamps. Every traveler on the railroad realizes the vital importancc of dependable ignals. This dependability rests to a large degree upon the quality of oil used in the lamps. It has been found that wherever conditions are particularly severe Fortnite Long Time Burner Oil has delivered highly satisfactory service. The samc idcal of perfection'applies to every one of the long list of pctrolcum products manufactured by this Company, whether the demand for them bc large or small. Each of thcse products has a record of reliability. Each is made to mcet the highest standard of quality and this quality is maintained. This ideal of service to meet severe tests is one basis upon which to estimate the value to the community of the service rendered by this Company. Standard Oil Company ( Iimm ) 910 So.

This is a bit of up-to-date journalism that should strong- ly appeal to your constituents and should materially enlarge your subscriptiol drcle. As you no doubt are aware, this service is broadcasted thru an arrangement between the U. S. Department of Agri- culture, the State Department of Agriculture and the Uni- versity of Minnesota. The Reporter for our Department, Mr. A. B. Smeb telephones the livestock markets each day at noon to Mr. P terson of the U. S.

Mr. Jansky broadcasts these reports within less than 30 min- utes after the. are issued from South St. Paul, and reports later on in the c ay covering the grain. We hope soon to be sending produce reports as well. Very trul: yours, HUGH J. HUGHES, HJH-f Director of Markets. i I III II I I I[ APRIL 6. 1922 rican First Dist.

The Directors of thia Company, realiz- ing that petroleum products are essential to the welfare of the community, are striving constantly to achieve an ideal of practical perfection in every product manufacturcd and sold by this Company. The result is, that wherever strains are severest, wherever the need is most intense, there will bc found products, devised by the experts of the Standard Oil Company (Indiana), to meet the conditions and re- lieve the situation. As an examplc of a product, which bears up under rather spectacular service tests, take Fortnitc Long Time Burner Oil for railway signal lamps. Every traveler on the railroad realizes the vital importancc of dependable ignals. This dependability rests to a large degree upon the quality of oil used in the lamps. It has been found that wherever conditions are particularly severe Fortnite Long Time Burner Oil has delivered highly satisfactory service. The samc idcal of perfection'applies to every one of the long list of pctrolcum products manufactured by this Company, whether the demand for them bc large or small. Each of thcse products has a record of reliability. Each is made to mcet the highest standard of quality and this quality is maintained. This ideal of service to meet severe tests is one basis upon which to estimate the value to the community of the service rendered by this Company. Standard Oil Company ( Iimm ) 910 So.

The Directors of thia Company, realiz- ing that petroleum products are essential to the welfare of the community, are striving constantly to achieve an ideal of practical perfection in every product manufacturcd and sold by this Company. The result is, that wherever strains are severest, wherever the need is most intense, there will bc found products, devised by the experts of the Standard Oil Company (Indiana), to meet the conditions and re- lieve the situation. As an examplc of a product, which bears up under rather spectacular service tests, take Fortnitc Long Time Burner Oil for railway signal lamps. Every traveler on the railroad realizes the vital importancc of dependable ignals. This dependability rests to a large degree upon the quality of oil used in the lamps. It has been found that wherever conditions are particularly severe Fortnite Long Time Burner Oil has delivered highly satisfactory service. The samc idcal of perfection'applies to every one of the long list of pctrolcum products manufactured by this Company, whether the demand for them bc large or small. Each of thcse products has a record of reliability. Each is made to mcet the highest standard of quality and this quality is maintained. This ideal of service to meet severe tests is one basis upon which to estimate the value to the community of the service rendered by this Company. Standard Oil Company ( Iimm ) 910 So.

This is a bit of up-to-date journalism that should strong- ly appeal to your constituents and should materially enlarge your subscriptiol drcle. As you no doubt are aware, this service is broadcasted thru an arrangement between the U. S. Department of Agri- culture, the State Department of Agriculture and the Uni- versity of Minnesota. The Reporter for our Department, Mr. A. B. Smeb telephones the livestock markets each day at noon to Mr. P terson of the U. S. Department, who trans- mits them to Professor Jansky on the University campus. Mr. Jansky broadcasts these reports within less than 30 min- utes after the. are issued from South St. Paul, and reports later on in the c ay covering the grain. We hope soon to be sending produce reports as well. Very trul: yours, HUGH J. HUGHES, HJH-f Director of Markets. i I III II I I I[
