South, serves the double nurpose.. -
f enriching the soil while prod acing au abundant yield of high grade feed at a, low cost. Pea
vine hay is of the highest quality of nourishing stock food, its cost of production is very low, but
the problem heretofore has been: How to save the valuable product, so easily produced and so
asily lost, and thereby insure another crop that will add to the income of the industrious south
em famer.Crude Methods of Curing
Heretofore have been the cause of loss of millions of dollars worth of the very best class of hay
that might (properly cured) have been made a commercial asset of the Southern States or added
to the home supply of stock feed, promoting the profitable business of wintering cattle for purpose
f home-made fertilizer, and profiting by their growth through the winter months, fed upon the
omparatively cheap hay produced on the fertile southern fields. Pea-vines are not the only
ource of hay production in the Southern States. But the one problem is how to save our hay,
because the cutting and gathering season of the southern hay crop is usually attended with
eather conditions--excessive rains-that make the saving of any hay crop one of doubt at times.
In this question the merchant is interested, the small farmer is interested, the large farmer is
vitally interested--in fact', all who look to the farmer for any part of their livig are deeply con
cerned about the welfare of the farmer and desire his success. His success is the hope of the~coun
try, AND HIS INDEPENDENCE OF FOREIGN FOOD SUTPPLIES for man or beast means
the general progress of the country.
This Device, The Dixie Daisy Htaystack Ventilator,
is a blessing, because it fills, in a timely way, a long-felt need-it accomplishes the purpose of
which men have thought for years. It will save your hay without risking the time required to
allow it to cure on the ground. It is simple in construction. cheap and durable. This device is
actually cheaper than the method of going into the woods, cutting poles and erecting, temporary,
stack poles. There is absolutely no waste of timber or wood about its use, and it furnishes a per
fet ventilator for all the green hay that can be piled on it in the open field so that yoar pea-vine
hay or any other kind of hay growvn will not mould or rot however green it may be when stacked
onthis dev-ice. This has been demonstrated. Its simplicity and cheapness appeal to every
thoughtful man-its ease of operation is a surprise to all who have heretofore worked and tugged
in the old-time method of trying to save our valuable hay crop.
It is Ce nstructed on Strictly Scientific Principles.
A tripod, substantially hinged, each leg of the tripod having strong spikes of sufficient length to
Ehold firmly the hay as it is piled on it and built up thereon as high as it can begnveniently
thrown by a man wvith a pitch-fork. The tripod is mounted with an adjustable fuegewhich al
lows the hay stack to be built as high as desired.
The process of ventilation is successfully assured by reason of the fact that the air passes freely
up through the (center of the stack to the top from the bottom, the spikes being so arranged that
no hay touches the ground. This device is light in construction, and when the hay is cured and
it. is desired to move it from the field, the process of loading it on the wagon is simple and easy, as
the whole apparatus (hay and appliance) can be lifted together and the hay easily lodged in the
Teentire apparatus is easily adjusted, it can be used on hill-sides as well as on level ground-it

vl y needs for which it was designed. eVetlio
Is by means of an open flue in the center and fromu the bottom upwards. Th9 principle of me
chanical construction is such that the legs of the miachin~e will hold more weight in hay than it is
possible to pile on the appara-tus. The legs are 48 inches high, and the top, adjustable spike is 18
inches long, and this carries a stack of green hay 74 I eet high, as seen in the cut. When this ap
