0 d i if j I B a?": sit T' t : Brush - Scrubbed, Crystal Clear, Germ - proof and thoroughly clean Milk Bottles have been the . f problem of the Dairy Industry for many years. It has often been admitted that there was ho method as satisfactory as the old Brush - Scrubbed plan. But this is entirely too slow for the big, modern dairy. The machine, pictured above, solves the problem. We would like to teve you visit our Dairy and inspect the marvelous work of this machine. Dirty bottles are fed into it at one end; they come out at the , other end, marshalled in rows like soldiers, crystal clear, fairly sparkling with cleanliness,' cold and dry. And then, another feature, they are carried on a conveyor line right into the bottling machine. So that they are never touched by human hands until after they are filled and capped. We are proud of our Plant. This is a large Dairy, built on the experience of forty - four years in the business. Won't you come and '' inspect it?
