I rack. -
In fact we arc here ! With the
HARVESTERS and MOWERS for the season of 1899.
Tue recognized perfect Machine for Wheat and Flay Growers.
There are other machines in the market, but there is but one McCormick.
Machine, and that is the best made or sold.
We want every farmer interested in saving their wheat or hay crop to in?
vestigate the advantages of these celebrated machines and do themselves
justice in getting a McCormick Harvester or Mower for 1899, for while the
machines are the best made, the prices and terms are always satisfactory to
buyers. There is no disputing the fact that we sold more " McCormick" ma?
chines last year to the farmers in the surrounding counties than were sold of
all other makes combined. This is a startling fact, and there is a reason for
it, it is the best and most satisfactory machine made or sold.
We refer to tbe following farmers who bought McCormick Machines last season and
who are thoroughly pleased in every reaped ;
