And What Sf Cleans to You
You Appreciate Econemy
You Get It Here
THE ONLY REAL ECONOMY ECONOMY
THAT "PROVES OUT"
There are two kinds of ecen
omy in buying farm imple
ments. One' is seeming economy; the
other is real economy.
One looks mainly to first
cost; the other looks mainly
to final results.
One makes you think you
have practiced buying economy
when you pay the first cost of
an implement; the other makes
you know you practiced buy
ing economy when jou count
the profits that the use of an
implement has paid you.
One is usually false economy;
the other is alwajs the kind of
economy that pas.
We offer you the real econ
