Seeing is Believing!
We told you so, but you would not believe us it seemed too good to be
true. Some one told you the "FORDSON would not pull it."
Well, just run over to the Chas. Warner farm and you can see for your
self that the Fordson Tractor and Woods Bros. Thresher are doing the best job of
threshing you ever saw.
There is no good reason why you should buy a larger outfit. It will cost
you more money and will give you no better service. Wallace Warner, Ray Smith
and Jack Micin purchased a Fordson Tractor and Woods Bros. 20x36 separator
and are now threshing. Ask them what they think about it. Go and see them
threshing and. you won't let any one tell you again that the Fordson Tractor and
Woods Bros, separator are too small for your use. Then come in and place your
order now. We can fill it now; perhaps not in two weeks.
