Barnatt's H?rne Made 4-Wheeled
Works Across the rows the right way. Patented April 21,1908.
I desire to call your attention to this Groat Labor Saver. The chopper that does Execution to Grass and
Weeds, in fact, it does the work of 8 men. After lo ?king around ?fo?' i ci nj, ? aiv> dijilei tJ go direct to
the cotton plauter and sell him the right to make his chopper for his own use for J u D ?ll.ir. Tnis rigit is
good for 17 years from the 21 day of April, IUU8. I will say here that ] have complied with all the laws of
the patent office and 1 further s;iy that this chopper does all 1 claim for it or your money back.
A Short Description.
The Chopper works across the rows, the chopping and plowing is done with a System of sweeps, adjust
ablj connected to a stock boam. In setting up these sweeps I will say yon eau eh them altogether-that,
of course, would cut it all out; but this connection being an adjustable one you then move out on the beam,
as desired, so as to leave a SPACE between the sweeps that will allow lor2 stalks to pass through. The
beam and stocks are connected with the front with rods; they are also connected beneath the frame with a
cross rod; the beam and stocks are movable in the frame: if the handles are elevated and let go, the beam
drops back on the frame, so in case of skips or bad stand, by elevating the handles you miss that part alto
gether and strike the next ridge at any depth desired. The chopper can be adjusted to leave 1 or 2 stalks;
and to run deep or shallow. Thc chopper cuts uniform any distance, by using large and small sweeps. Say
y?u want eight inches, use 8-inch sweeps. If wanted extra large, take out one or more stocks and use extra
wide sweeps. This patent calls for any number. I think 5 or 6 about right. The rear wheels run in the
wake of the outside sweeps. The front wheels cut under, turning is easy. The chopper works in any ordi
nary land with one or two horses. The old way of barring off cotton is a waste of time and money. This
chopper does all the plowing as it goes across leaves dirt to the cotton and gives the land a thorough cul
tivation. By taking out the middle stock and straddling you can give your cotton a second plowing, two
rows at a round. This done, your cotton is under control. This rapid cultivation early in the spring is a
good remedy for the boll ivecvil, try it. Now let me say right here: In planting if y^u will put plenty of
seed in to insure a stand it will n>t pay you ti? follow this cnopper with a hoe, for the amount is left with you,
? have prepared a hook of instructions for making the chopper that tolls everything from the first to the last
lick. The cost is comparatively nothing, you simply take any light cast off wheels and cut them down and
ase thc same axles. The farmer with the aid of this chopper is independent as far as labor is concerned. He
gels in the cotton a! the right tim both chopping and plowing as he goes at the rate of 10 acres a day. No
?meh thing a?. Wing in the grass, lt's what you save that counts. Read what the farmers say, and send
%1 00 today for this right and book <>f instructions for making and bc ready. Address
