The Farmers Need
When you buy an implement you want the
best, especially when you can gej the best on the
market at a very reasonable price .
We want to call your especial
attention to Deere's Universal
They are not only strong, being made of the
best material, but they are Adjustable and Rever-,
sible. Call and let us explain to you the advan
tages that the Deere harrows have over other har
rows on the market. Can furnish any elise.
THE DEERE STALK CUTTER/
is an implement that is being appreciated and- yak
ued more highly by farmers each succeeding year
One great advantage that this^cutter offers is .the
elimination of the jolting and'jarring to both, driver'
and team. Heavy springs are so attached and ad
justed as to break the force of the constant jolting
of the blades. The Deere St?lk Cutters have
steel frames and can stand the roughest use.
We want to keep ?n, close touch with the farmr
ers and will always take great pleasure in explain- '
iDg every detail of the implements we sell.
It should be the chief airn of the progressive
farmers to equip his farm with implements and
machinery that will minimize, labor and at the
same time do the ?work in the best possible man
ner. We stand ready to co-operate with them in
accomplishing this purpose. Cali to see us when
you come to Edgefield.
'Ali points for this plow that break will be
replaced with new ones.
