Beautiful Memorial
For Mrs. Cunningham
A recent issue of the Presbyterian
Banner, published in Pittsburgh, has a
most beautiful "in memoriam" to Mrs.
Clyde Beaumont Cunningham, wife of
Jesse E. B. Cunningham, of this city,
who passed away early in the year.
The writer speaks of her happy dis
position and lovable character, her fond
ness for people and the pleasure she
took in doing for others. Of her love
of home, naturJ. the beautiful in every
thing and closes by saying: "Mrs. Cun
ningham brought the charm and joy of
her own life not only into the home she
graced with peculiar beauty but into
every circle into which she entered.
She cared for people and loved to help
them. To relieve distress, to bring
cheer, to restore to gladness, to renew
hope, to care for the little ones whom
Jesus lovpd and to do it for His sake, to
share in the life and to do her part as
the wife of a man active in public and
professional life, to be faithful in every
duty and to be a minister of others
always—tins is the biography of Clyde
Cunningham. Her husband, her sisters
and her friends mourn that she has
gone. Most of all. however, they rejoice
that they knew her, that they had her
with them for so many years, and that
they shared in the bright and joyous life
site lived."

"Now," asked
Mr. Hershey,
as he seated himself at his desk, "what
do you want to know?"
"I want to know," answered the Ad
Man, "more about those dairies that sup
ply you with the cream you use in HER
"To begin with, there are about a thou
sand different dairies," said Mr. Hershey.
"Goodness gracious!" exclaimed the
Ad Man, "you don't mean to tell me that
it takes that many dairies to supply this
"It certainly does; and there are times
in season that we could use many more.
We've got a pretty big business here and
it's growing all the time. We don't con
sider a thousand enough!" replied the
general manager of the big creamery.
"Where are all these dairies?" asked
the inquisitive person, who was getting
more inquisitive every minute.
It seems the more questions you an
swer some people the more they will ask;
and the Ad man was no exception to the
rule. But Mr. Hershey was patient, or at
least appeared to be, and the Ad man
kept up his rapid-fire interrogation.
"Our dairies are located in Dauphin,
Perry, Franklin, Cumberland, Adams
and York Counties," replied Mr. Her
shey, in answer to the last question.
That's a big field to draw frpm and a
credit to the section, for .if'proves that
those counties produce tfie best quality
milk, else the Hershey Creamery Com
pany would not use it.
"How do you get all that cream to your
plant here in Harrisburg?" asked the
Ad man.
"Well, as I explained to you before,"
replied Mr. Hershey, "the farmers bring
the milk to our central receiving sta
tions. We have a sufficient number of
them conveniently located in each dis
trict so that the farmers won't have to
haul the milk far."
Think what a wonderful saving thai
is for the farmer who used to haul milk
for many miles to town or to a railroad
station to be shipped. The Hershey
Creamery Company practically brings
its vast facilities right up to the farm
door. That's one of the links in the
chain between the farm and the city.
"What if a farmer has more milk than
you can use?" remarked the Ad man.
"The farmer has the best of it," an
swered Mr. Hershey, "we take all the
milk his farm produces, year in and year
out. If it's the right quality we need
it all."
"When you have the milk at your cen
tral receiving stations, what then?" asked
the Ad man. 1
"That's an important question," an
swered Mr. Hershey.
