aking the Farm Pay!
All farmers know the value of keeping up the
strength and fertility of the land. And cspeciall- is
this of prime importance now on ijecount of the high
prices to which land lias climbed. With land selling at
$300.00 to $400.00 an acre no one can afford, through
neglect, to lose from five to ten bushels of grain per
acre, when by protecting or renewing their land with a
covering of straw or manure they could avoid it. 1 he
"One Man Straw and Manure Spreader" will solve the
problem. See the machine and get full information re
garding its work and possibilities for renewing and
keeping up the fertility of the soil.
