"PASSING THE . BUCK."
At last farmers are able to secure the per
fected Light and Power. This plant is the
Owen. Until the Owen came, farmers had
to be content with makeshift units. Crude,
too small, expensive to operate.
Still many bought these temporary units.
They could no longer content themselves
with kerosene lamps and the lack of electric
power. Many hesitated, waiting for just
such a plant as the Owen.
Now those who have
already bought units are
replacing them with this
final-type plant. Each
day we are receiving or
ders from farmers who
have been waiting.
The Owen's success
has been instant. It is
a new conception. It
offers you betterments such as have never
been offered by any other plant.
The Owen starts and stops itself. It is
completely automatic. No running down
to the cellar to turn it on or off. When the
batteries are partially discharged, the engine
starts automatically. When they are fully
charged, "it stops automatically. When you
require more current than the batteries
should care for, the engine starts automatic
ally. Even the lubrication is automatic.
Aside from the matchless convenience this
automatic control offers, it also multiplies
the life of the batteries overcoming costly
replacements formerly necessary.
As a result the Owen costs you but one
fifth as much to operate as other units. It
offers you illumination and power at less per
candle-power than kerosene lamps.
The Owen has a "si
lent valve" engine which
cannot leak. Compres
sion remains perfect.
Grinding of valves and
scraping of carbon arc
It will light as high a5
100 lamps without flick
ering. It has more ca
pacity for running a water system, chums,
cream separators, washing machines, milk
ing machines, electric fans, irons and
Dozens of such reasons as this should urge
you to know the Owen leiore you decide.

features to you. A post-card or a telephone
call will bring us to call on you.
