and stalls, is a gloomy one. Those
pile mean much disagreeable and
hard work. It must all be loaded on hiq-h
wagons. It must be raked off in piles in the
fields. Then every forkful must be shaken
apart and spread.
Compare that old-fashioned method with the
I II C spreader w-ay. You pitch the manure
into the spreader box, only waist high, drive
out and the machine does all the rest. And
it spreads evenly and far less wastcfully.
I H C Manure Spreaders
are farm necessities. The man who uses one
- . will get the price of it back in increased crops
before its newness has worn off.
Kvery detail and feature counts. They do
best work always and stand every strain fjr
years. They are made in all styles and sies,
for small farms and large, low and high ma
chines, frames of braced and trussed stj l.
Uphill or down, or on the level, the apron
drive assures even spreading, and the covering
of corners is assured by rear axle different ills.
In all styles the rear axle is placed so that it
carries near three-fourth? of the load. This,
with the wide-rimmed wheels with Z-shaped
lugs, makes for plenty of tractive power.
Winding of the beater is prevented by large
diameter and the beater teeth are long, strong
and chisel pointed.
The I II C spreader lines will interest you.

her membership, through her life,
she was an attendant at the

THE FOOT BALL SEASON TO
OPEN SOON IN PLATTSMOUTH
From Friday's Daily.
From all appearances Platts
mouth is to be treated to some
foot ball this season, as the boys
around town are forming a team
to plav during the early winter
months. There is much pood
material to select from in the
city and every effort is being
made to get the best talent, out
for practice in order that a choice
mav be made of the team. It is
expected to hold the games at the
base ball park during the season
and they should prove good draw
ing cards for the lovers of this
great game. The boys have had
several preliminary practices and
this evening they will meet at the
ball park for the purpose of
electing a captain and forming
plans for the work of the season.
Through an error the announce
ment was made that the team
would meet for practice at
o'clock, when it should have been
6:30, as the approaching fall
evenings make it too dark for
much effective practice after
o'cock. All those who are in
terested in the project to boost
the foot ball team should be on
hand this evening and assist in
the forming of an organization
to carry out. the plans to make a
successful team here this year.
