The first plows that came into this locality were not the

We have kept a very strict watch on the plow business.
We have made it an especial study. We have made it our
business to study all the different makes that come into this

The makers of this plow fully guarantee the working
qualities of it. They are the men that not only know how to
make plows, BUT MAKE THEM. No matter what you want,
you can get it in the CHATTANOOGA..
