WHAT I WOULD DO
IF I WERE A FARMER
I would use only the best tools obtain
able; they are less expensive in upkeep.
I would, after the cultivating season is
finished, have competent mechanics to go
over, repair and paint all tools. I would
house all tools and machinery until again
needed. I would when using any tool see
that ail bolts are tight. I would once
every week squirt a few drops of oil on
the tops of all tools in use; this will
eliminate rust and make all bolts easy to
tighten. I would care for the feet and
legs of all stock. I would never have a
plow animal shod exc pt f:r some defect.
I would in time of dry spells use twice
a week some gcod hoof ointment, thus
keeping the hovny lr.cf elastic, otherwise
my horse would be ir. danger of becoming
lame. I would use Miller's Adjustable
Back Band Saddle on ail plow stock;
this saddle will prevent sore b.ck and
when the back is sore by using this sad
dle the animal c.n be worked .'.id the
back cured at the same time. I would
permit no one tr. m-.ke r .-pairs nor shoe
my horses except those w'.:o can under
standing^ explain why these things
should be done in a certain way. I
know there are rules by which all these
things should be done. 1 know there are
men who have made the learning and
practice of these rules a life calling and
study. I kno# that competent mechanics
nre reluctant about giving these secrets
to the novice. I know this - reluctance
has bred a varied crop of self-styled
natural-born mechanics. I know that
these men are here today and yonder next
day. I know this class are frauds for
the reason that they have spoiled much
material for me.
In conclusion I invite you to come to
see me and let us talk over these things.
Ask any question you like pertaining to
my line of business and if I don't answer
correctly then I don't want your business
and I am a bug.
