THE BUFFALO PITTS 9
Is the Result of 75 Years' a
Experience in Thresher Building b
A Few Superior Feature
Do you know that the Buffalo Pitts has a steel frame-a solid steel d
front making a bed for the cylinder as solid as granite-an adjustable
concave which allows p)roper spacing of the cylinder and concave teeth,
front and back - a 95 per cent separation at the cylinder-a steel feeder o
which does not slug the cylinder but feeds the machine better than can be l
done by hand-self-aligning boxes-shafts and bearings ground to the a
one-thousandth part of an inch--and many other special features which t
have been found desirable after 75 years of experimenting and building
by its manufacturers?
All the good features left out of the above list you will find in the
Buffalo P'itts catalogue which we will be glad to hand you when you call t
on us. Do it today if you can. a
We almost forgot- we can fit an I H C oil engine or tractor to your t
needs be they small or large. Built for hard work and the greatest
economy, they have all other engines backed off the boards when it comes
to real service. None better.

was here this week regard
ing the prospect of revoting t
a tax in favor of the trolley. We c
believe our people would vote a r
tax of three or three and one half (
mills for ten or more years in or- a
der to realize a bonus of $15.000. i
The Railroad Company as well as f
our people realize the hard times, a
but our people want this trolley I
and the trolley would like to come
this way. We are told that Mr. t
Godchaux, the president has con- .
tracted for the building at once of a
twelve miles of road, which will
either be put to St. Martinville or e
to Centreville. That is left to us,
it we vote the tax we get the road,
if we don't, then it goes Centre. i
vills instead of coming this way.
This is a plain proposition.
The Committee appointed at
the Mass Meeting held a few days
ago, have obtained advice from an
attorney and have received the
necessary papers from Baton
Rouge for the recall of the Police
Jurors of the First Ward of St.
Martin Parish and are now ready
to report. The citizens are invit
ed to attend a meeting at the Town
Hall on Monday February 15th.,
at 7 P. M., to receive the report
and act in the matter.

To the Live Stock Owners of the State.
Past experience has taught that
best results are obtained when ani
mals are vaccinated against char
bon early in the Spring so as to
allow about 30 days in which to
secure protection before the sea
son approaches when oharbon in
fdction usually develops.
The State Live Stock Sanitary
Board strongly urges, therefore,
that, in thoseesections of the State
in which charbon infection hae
been known to exist in previous
year, vacoination of animals
should be commenced not later
than March let. That is, the first
dose, of a double dose vaccine
should be given at that time.
If etock owners will give this
matter their careful attentiou, it
will increase the number of pro.
tected animals at the beginning of
the charbon nesson, and material
ly limit the spread of the disease,
should the coming Summer prove
favorable to the development of
Loalslana Liver Stock Sanitary Board.

Practically all of the giant en- 0a

Occasionally a towering genius ni
succeeds in building up a great
industry which exacts rich toil ai
from the masses, but there are the of
exceptions which, as the mathe- vi
maticians say, only prove the rule. is

been in Acadia, with one point' in
