O’Neill Electric Shoe
It’s the soles of the people he keeps in view,
For he is the doctor of boot and shoe;
He serves the living and not the dead
With the best of leather, wax, nails and thread.
He can sew on a sole and make it fast,
And do a good job and make it last.
A great many patients come to his door,
Worn out and run'down, besides feeling sore;
Though he doesn’t use poultice, plaster or pill,
He cuiles sick shoes, no matter how ill.
This little ditty refers to the shop that has the latest electrical
machinery and w hich guarantees satisfaction.

Something Besides the Better
and Egg Money
Start a Fordson tractor working for you now—and
before Spring, the savings and profits that you realize
from custom work or work on your own farm will have
mounted to a worthwhile figure.
Wood-sawing, grain grinding, shredding and numerous
heavy hauling jobs are some of the ways in which
hundreds of Fordson farmers are making otherwise
unproductive time pay during the winter months.
And from the time you start your spring plowing, right
through every season and stage of growdng and har
vesting your crops, you are assured of abundant and
dependable power that will do each job in less time
and with greater economy.
Next time you are in town just drop in and let us talk
over with you our plan that makes it possible for every
v . farmer to own a Fordson.
