allowed to harden. Skim off, remelt

if it were not so good at first.

Among Our Patrons
Peter Sciiuttler's \ OOth Anniversary
In 1913 the Peter Schuttler Com
pany will celebrate the lOUth an
niversary of the birth of Peter Schut
tler, founder of the great institution
that still bears his name.
Seventy yeais ago (in 1843) Peter
Schuttler started building farm
wagons in a little shop on the corner
of Randolph an Franklin Streets ia
Chicago, which was then a small
village only six years old, with a
population of about 38 people. He
built the old reliable Peter Schuttler
wagons with his own hands and was
oue of the pioneer farm wagon build
ers in the United States.
The first wagons that crossed the
great plains of the weat were built
by Peter Schuttler. He also built the
wagons used by the Mormons in
their migration to Utah.
From the little shop in Chicago the
business has grown until today it is
one of the greatest farm wagon fac
tories in the world.
Three generations of his sons and
grandsons have grown up in the same
business, and for over seventy years
the business has been in the one
family. It is still under the active,
personal management of Peter Schut
tler's grandsons, who are all practical,
progressive wagon builders.
As the business grew, larger and
still larger buildings were erected —
and upon the death of of Peter Schut
tler the first in 1865 it was continued
by his son, Peter Schuttler the second.
The factory was swept away in the
great Chicago fire of 1871, and a new
plan was erected at Clinton and Mon
roe Streets, which was the largest and
most modern of its time.
In 1902 the present large plant was
built. It is one of the largest in the
world, covering over 20 acres of
ground, and is equipped with every
labor saving device that will do the
work as well as by hand.

Land Clearing Cheapened.
Chris Knutzen is using a power
stump puller on his ranch near
Burlington, Wash., that seems to
present an effective solution of the
land clearing problem on the west side
of the mountains. The maohine is a
Rapid Gasoline Donkey Engine and
Stump Puller manufactured by the
Poison Implement Company, 77
Columbia street, Seattle. On hear
ing of the success which Mr. Knutzen
has been having with this machine,
a representative of The Ranch inspect
ed a like machine on the Poison
Implement Company's sample floor.
The outfit consists of a double drum
donkey, built entirely of steel, in
cluding steel gears and is driven by an
I. H. C. gasoline engine. The Poison
Implement Company regularly manu
facture the stump puller with a 12, a
15 or a 20 horse power engine, as
desired by the purchaser. They also
sell the stump pulling device alone,
or any combination required. The
machine is big and rugged and amply
strong to stand any strain to which
it can possibly be subjected.
Mr. Knutzen has been using his
"Rapid" for nearly a year and has
found it wonderfully effective. The
big advantage a machine of this type
has over the steam donkey formerly
in use, is its lower cost and the fact
that it does not require experienced
help to perate it. One man at the
machine is all that is necessary, dis
pensing with the fireman, wood saw
yer, etc. The outfit can be used for
a few minutes at a time and then shut
down, stopping the expense entirely,
and can be started again on a moment's
notice. This, in itself, will be a
featuro which will appeal very strong
ly to any man who has ever had to
fire up a steam donkey for a short
spell of work. The engine burns
gasoline or distillate and when not
pulling throttles down to a very small
consumption of fuel.
As it can be used by any one with
out the aid of an experienced engi
neer, it is being taken up by ranchers,
associations of ranouers, local granges,
etc., to be used among various mem
bers. A steam donkey needs a big
crew to work effectively, while this
new machine is used economically with
a total force of three men, or it can
furnish ample power to keep a much
larger crew busy if needed. We
believe that the Poison Implement
Company in bringing out a machine
of this type, has gone a long way to
ward helping clear thejands of West
Market for Poultry.
The Pacific Poultry Co., of the
Corner Market, Pike streot and First
avenue, Seattle, are advertising in
this issue. This company finds an
excellent market for live poultry for
killing purposes as well as a limited
amount of pure bred birds. If our
readers have a surplus they will find
it to their interest to communicate
with this company before disposing
of their stock. The writer has con
signed considerable stock to them
himself and knows of a number of
others who have done so and in each
case they always paid a trifle higher
than the Western Avenue Market.
