A Fell Crop of
IT DEFENDS UPON
It costs no more to raise a full crop than it does to raise a or z$ crop.
It takes as much seed, as many hours work, as much wear and tear on horse
flesh and machinery to
raise a small, poorly r r
graded crop as a large,
high grade one.
The size and qual
ity of your crop de
pend largely upon the
dnll you use.
There are scores
drills that scatter the
seed at various depths
much of it stays on
the surface to be eaten
by birds or, withered
by the sun. Perhaps 50 to 75 of this seed grows. It germinates unevenly
it comes up unevenly it r.'pens unevenly and does not grade high.
But (here is one Drill that is different.
. .Why not use the one Drill that places every seed where it
onito? Double Bisc Drills
deposit the seed at the bottom of a clean, wide
furrow m two rows and cover it uniformly with
moist ea:th, giving it abundant room to stool.
You get a good stand with one-iifth less seed.
Every good seed grows germinates uniformly
' all comes up at one time ripens evenly and
grades the highest.
of KiaMsi i
The Agricultural Colleges in various parts of K
the country have made exhaustive tests and find
that the Monitor Drill produces crops which are
not only larger Lut grads higher than those pro-
iVfej duced by any other.
The Monitor Douule Disc Drill is the only
titem Drill that drops t! e seed in front of the axle with
"" sfes2ss the dbwnward turn or the disc, carrying every
graiato the bottom of the furrow this device is covered by patents.
The Monitor Drill will operate successfully in any kind of soil.
Every feature of the Monitor Drill is a strong one. Steel draw bars and
hangers steel levers steel ratchets. It is mat'e of the very best materials and
will give excellent service after many other diills are in the scrap heap. Don't
buy a drill until you have learned all about the Monitor.
Studebaker Cars at
the Battle Front.
Cecil V. E. Hall, Native English
man Who Enlisted in States
and is Now with American Ex
peditionary Forces in France,
Says High Ranking British Staff
Officers Show Great Faith in
Sturdy Studebakes Cars.
That Studebaker automobiles are
quite common at the battle front
in France is brought to light by
reading an interesting letter from
"over there' ' written by Cecil V.
E. Hall, a former Studebaker
salesman, who enlisted in the
Twelfth United States Engineers
when war was declared, and is
now serving, with the American
Expeditionary forces in France.
Mr. Hall, a native of Great Bri
tain, was in this country at the
time of America's entry into the
great world conflict. He showed
his patriotism and loyalty to the
land of his adoption by promptly
offering his services to Uncle
Sam. His letter to L. J. Oilier,
vice-president and director of
sales of the Studebaker Corpora
tion, dated September 24th and
giving his address as "Near the
Battle Front in France," is much
treasured by the Studebaker offi
cial. "Just a line to tell you that
Studebaker automobiles are as
common right here on the firing
line as I have seen them in the
States," writes Mr. Hall "It is
the only thing that looks natural
in this unnatural sphere. The
high ranking British officers use
them and as I have sold many
Studebaker cars in San Antonio
and Dallas, Texas, I could not
help but ask questions about them
I am glad to say that I have heard
nothing but gooo about them over
here. Those who drive them say
they give the least trouble of any
car they ever handled.
"Iam glad, sir, that even here
in the war zone good old Stude
baker stands the test. I love the
car and hope never to sell any
otnef. I have seen a great deal
of hard work done by the Stude
baker over here and, though there
are many other autos of other
makes, I notice that it is Stude
baker that is used when they are
going to have a long,, hard run,"
It is proverbial that British
Army officers pick only the best
their wisdom in the selection of
motor equipment for the great
war is indisputable.
Where reliability and seconds
count; where it is "do or die,",
Studebaker staminia, reliability,
and all around quality has been
so marked that British Staff offi
cers have shown a marked pre
ference for this American car.
The Studebaker car that are
giving such wonderful service on
the firing line in France have no
special equipment of any sor:.
They are standard Series 17 ar d
18 Studebaker cars throughout
and have no special parts of a.iy
