"YOUNG AMERICA!"
Leavitt's Latest Improved Portable Mill.
EXCELSIOR!
THIIS is the mast valuable and economical Portable
( Grain tMill ever offered to the public, as is freely
acknowledged by all who have seen it work, for grind
ting cob and corn. Mr. Leavitt was the originator of
this description of mills and has spared no expense in
bringing them to perfection. The mill is so simple in
its construction and so few in its parts that any per
son can manage it, and for glining or crushing corn
and cob together, grinding fine meal from corn, etc.,
hasi no equal. At a recent Iriai of mills during tie f:ir
of the Maryland Agricultural Society, the result was:
Young America or Excelsior Mill, 27A miin.... 10 revo.
Little Giant 3Mill.... ................. 4 min.... 15 revo.
MIaynard's Champion Mill,......... 5 tmin....20 revo.
Colburn's Mill,.......... ............. min....32revo.
The Young America will grind more corn, or corn
and cob, in 'lie same time and of the same quality,
than any mnill extant. These mills can be procured in
Shreveport of [fieb5] KNEELAND & Co.
