Same of the Reasons Why You Should ship Your
Cream to the Piedmont Creamery:
1st We a well equippped plant, located in the largest city iu the
State, right where butter will be consumed. This will enable us
to pay the highest possible price for butter fat.
2nd We can sell our butter milk right over the counter for
drinking purposes and derive a revenue from this.
3rd We have splendid service from your place by baggage and
express and all shipments will be received a few hours after made.
4th We have efficient men in charge of our plant and are in posi
tion to make the highest quality of butter when we have good cream
5to We are steong financially, have sufficient money to pay for
cream as soon as received, if necessary. We refer you by permis
sion to the Commercial National Bank of Charlote, as to our re
sponsibility. 6th Give us a trial shipment and we will send you returns im
mediately, and you can compare our tests and prices with what you
are getting from other plants. The butter market is the highest
it has been at this time of the year since 1882.
Tth We are paying at the present time for all cream testing 25
per cent or better 45c per pound for butter fat. Can afford in jus
tice to yourself and your patrons not to take advantage of this ex
ttemely high price?
8th We invite you to come and see us and inspect our plant and
f. method. To individual shippers, w offer cans free for thirty
