Pearson is the sole owner of a
patent neckyoke attachment, the
tirst installment of which he pro
poses to manufacture in R ck Island
and place upon the market. The
success or failure of the enterprise,
he says, will be determined in a few
months and rests entirely on how
the first installment of 500 sets goes
before the public eye. The attach

for the leather strap which holds
the wagon tongue onto the neckyoke.
