RESPECTFULLY call the attention of Farmers to their assortment of Agricultural
Implements. In these days of progress and economy in farming operations,
the importance Of obtaining the best implements, or machinery, is quite evident.
Contfident in the belief that we can furnish articles of our own manufacturer

stock. It is composed,
in part,of the following articles:
Of these, we have of Lever Powers, three kinds, 4, 6, and 8
horse.    Of Treads, we have two kinds, 1 and 2 horse. Of

tread, and 6 and 8 horse lever power. Of Open Threshers,
we have three kinds, adapted to 1 and 2 horse tread power,
and 4 horse lever.
These Machines will thresh, in average kinds of grains as follows: An 8 horse
machine and separator will clean froms 350 to 500 bushels of wheat per day;
a 6 horse machine from 300 to 450 bushels per day; 2 horse Tread from 300
to 400 bushels
per day; 1 horse tread from 100 to 150 bushels per day.
