F. P. BU8CH, Manager
Charles Peek received word from Blank Books at the Journal Offlee.
I The Litchfield Manufacturing company are not claiming
that they have the only good manure spreader, but they are
claiming that they have the best, from a number of points,
which is effective service, economy in operation and thor
oughness in the work done, no matter what kind of material
which is operated upon.
It is said that the makers of the Special spreader do not
know how to make anything else, but the great and potent
fact is "They do know how to build the best spreader.
That is not all they do. They furnish a machine that
pays on a farm, not a toy, but a real revenue getter, a better
instrument than an auto, a truck or a tractor. v
There is a number of other good features in this ma
chine which we have not space to enumerate. Give us a
chance to demonstrate.
