TOWNSEND'S
Improved Wheel Cultivator.
of
A FTER four years experimenting nnd practi
cal exjicricnce with Wheel Cultivators, I
offer to the public this Great Labor-Saving
Machine. It lms been used by some of the best
practical Farmers in Cecil, Kent, nnd Queen
Anne's counties, for three years, and its merits
have been tested by similftr machines, and in all
cases the award has been given to Townsend's
Improved Cultivator. It is now the favorite im
plement of the best Practical Farmers, wherever
it has been used, for the cultivation of Corn, Sor
gum, Potatoes, Strawberries, or Vegetables in
gcncrul. Also for preparing Fallow Lands or
Corn Ground for Wheat. Now, I offer fbr sale,
State, County, District and Shop Right», for
manufacturing, and on reasonable terms ; as the
Cultivator is inconsiderable demand, and bound
to come into general use. For further Informa

of the best implements I have ever used or

work of two Cultivators, thereby saving the
board and wages of one hand.
