DOUBLE HOW CULTIVATOR
A double-row cultivator has been de
signed by the Pat tee I'low company of
Monmouth, and is at present being
tested to determine its efficil ncy. The
inventor is J. P. Moore, super
intendent, and is demonstrating
that he has the first successful ma
chine of its kind on the market. It has
proven a success in hi: designing
room, and is demonstrating its worth
in the field.
In its construction the Implement is
unique. It is a three-horse riding cul
tivator. The action of the gangs is
simple, each being Independent of the
other in its working.
The operator sits directly over a
castor wheel just to the rear of tin
gangs, and either by foot or by hand
has easy control of them. In its
I make-up the Implement is practically
jtwo Pattee cultivators. Its weight
i and draft are ligiit. and its builder
claims that it will, with three horses
ami one man. do the work of two men
and four horses, as used on the old cul
tivators. Several of the implements are doing
successful work on the farms in the
vicinity of Monmouth. This year's trial
will probably suggest a number of
minor improvements which will perfect
the plow. Next spring, if present plans
carry, the plow will be put on the
market and success for it seems as
sured. SPENCER MEMORIAL CHURCH
