Barnett's Home Made 4=Wheeled
Works Across the Rows the Right Way, Patented April 21, 1908,
I desire to call your attention to this Great Labor Saver. The Chopper that does Execution
to Grass and Weeds, in fact, it does the work of eight men. After looking around for a time, I
have decided to go direct to the cotton planter and sell him the right to make this chopper for his
own use for One Dollar. This right is good for 17 years from the 21st day of April, 1908. 1 will
say here that I have complied with all the laws of the patent office and I further say that this chop
per does all I 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, adjustably connected to a stock beam. In setting up these sweeps I will say you can close
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 SPACE between the sweeps that will
allow 1 or 2 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 altogether and strike the next ridge'at anyi
depth desired. The chopper can be adjusted to leave 1 or 2 stalks; and to run deep or shallow. The
chopper cuts uniform any distance, by using large or small sweeps. Say you want 8-inches, use 8
inch sweeps. If wanted extra wide, tate 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
out side sweeps. The front wheels cut under, turning is easy. The chopper works in any ordinary
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 athorough
cultivation. By taking out the middle stock and straddling you can give your cotton a seconid plow.
ing, two rows at a round. This.done, your cotton is under control. This rapid cultivation in the
early spring is a good remedy for the boll weevil, try it. Now let me say right here: In planting if
you will put plenty of seed in to insure a stand it will not pay you to follow this chopper with the
hoe, for the amount left is with you, I have prepared a book of instructions for malifiig the chopper
that tells every thing 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 use same axles. The farmer .with the aid of
this chopper is independent as far as labor is concerned. He gets in the cotton at the right time,
both chopping and plowing as he goes at the rate of 10 acres a day. No'such thing as being In the,
grass. It's what you save that counts. Read what the farmers say, and send $1.00 today for
this right and book of instructions for making-and be ready. Address
