William ! born. Tins they mo-t tailtitully roT up constantly in barn yards, stables, 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. See them at the local dealer's.

From the time of her membership, through her life, she was an attendant at the Kiny's Creek Pre-by t erian church, located in a beautiful oak timber liai only a -hurt distance from ! he old home. .or were her acts of Chri-lian help and benevol ence routined to the needy of her own reli-rious denomination.

It was Ihis concep tion of Ihe highest Christian char acter and of duty to the afflicted, io practically illustrated through a long- life by deceased, that at tracted to her so many faithful friends and which so impressed that large assembly -who stood PLATTSSiOUTH SEMI-WEEKLY weepiny over her eollin a? the Rev.
