ARE MAKING MONEY
Practically all farmers who are
selling cream to the Tyler Creamery
ara meeting with splendid results.
Sam Ellerd, living two miles from
Swan, is especially well pleased. He
is milking nine cows and Walter
Wiley, lesssee of the Creamry, stated
to the Courier-Times maw that bis
check for one week recently was
$18.75. This Is about an average
week's business. At this rate, one
month's business will bring Mr. El-
lerd the neat sum of nearly $10 per
(Mr. Ellerd sells only the cream and
keeps the skim milk which is fed to
the chickens and hogs. He said to-
day that ho had nine head of fat,
sleek hogs that had been feed but
very little else except the milk.
"Selling to the creamery beats
hauling the butter and milk around
town all too pieces," said Mr. Ellerd
this morning to the Courier-Times
Any fawner can' do as well as Mr.
Ellerd is doing by only making the
