The first auto milk wagon in service in this section of the state will appear soon on the streets of Marietta. The modern system of delivery will be introduced by C. J. Becker's Bonnie Dairy, and will do the work formerly handled by three horse delivery wagons. The auto-cab was built by the J. H. Oesterle Wagon Works.
