f Oflloe of | I VORKVILLE BUGGY COMPANY, | X M. C. WILLIS, Proprietor. - |j # g " Yorkville, S. C., June io, 1901. ? I TO THE PUBLIC : | * It has never been our policy to sell goods bv vilifying ? ? " * t o?hers; but to sell strictly on merit. The action of the McCor- ? X mick Harvester Company, in attacking directly the Dcering ? ? Harvester Company, whom we represent in this territory, makes ? 4 H it necessary for us to give some facts, which we give, not with 2 ? the view of hurting our friends, the local agents of the McCor- ? ? mick Harvester Company, but in self-defense against the at- ? ? tacks of their company. The papers containing these attacks % * were sent bv us to the Deering headquarters for the Southern ? ? * territory at Atlanta, Ga., with the suggestion that they reply to ? ' same. The Dcering people refused to reply, saying that it did ? ? not pay to do so; that they sold the goods, and that the trade ? ? was satisfied with them, and that was what all business people Jj| ^ ^ 2 should be after. However, we deem it best to reply ourselves: g S Everybody knows that it is our policy to sell the BEST ? ? GOODS. So when we decided to go into the machine busi- g || ness we wrote to the brother of the writer, who is a large grain g ? grower in Virginia, asking his advice. He advised us to handle * g the DEERING. Upon further investigation, we decided that ? 2 the Deering was the BEST; hence we contracted with them sev- |[ * eral years ago. g ? The writer went personally into the fight last season to g ? sell machines, and came out victorious over all competitors, and 2 ? became convinced by personal observations, that the Deering * ? was the BEST machine. Mr. Huff, (I think that's the name), g j. ? representing the McCormick company, came to see us last fall ? g and tried to get us to drop the Deering and accept the McCor- ? g mick agency; said he would give us a lever bv which we could || 2 prize out all competition. He was so certain that he could do ? ? this, that we asked him what it was. He said that he would ? ? give us his "modern" machine, that we were to sell at $125 on g ? regular terms; that he would give us machines built on their g g patterns of three or four years ago, that we could sell on a push ? g for $80.00, we think; but we are sure it was not higher than |j ? $85 00. Of course, we refused this offer, as we wished to sell ? | ONLY THE BEST Goods. We want to be DISTINCTLY | ? UNDERSTOOD. We do not mean to say that our competi- 2 ? tors arc selling this old style, low-priced machine, for we have * ? not seen their machines, and don't know. Wc are simply giv- t 2 ing you the PACTS and allowing you to draw your own con- & ? elusions. ? ? We will say, in conclusion, that we did not decide to go 2 x into print in this matter until Saturday night, and as all matter 2 ? must be in the hands of the printer by this evening, we have ? ? not been able to get all the endorsements we could get if we * 2 had a little more time. However, we think that we have quite $ ? 1 ? enough to show you that the Dccrinp Harvesting Machinery is * ? ^ * giving some of your neighbors all the satisfaction that they X 2 can possibly ask for. X 2 We propose to stand by every guarantee wc have given, ? 2 and treat our customers in a perfectly fair and courteous man- j| & ner. We take this method of publicly thanking them for their 2 ? liberal patronage. We are expecting more Binders on every ? 2 train, and would be glad to sell a few more. We have only j| 2 one on hand. Respectfully, ? | YORKVILLE BUGGY CO., * ? al. C. Wilms, Proprietor. * i 1 Letter From M. F. Holahaii, Gen.Agt.

DEERING HARVESTER CO., By W. D. Long, General Agent, Richmond, Va. "Deering Binders." With the above facts before you in regard to the "Monroe Field Contest" from which to draw your own conclusions, we submit the following from YORK COUNTY USERS OF THE DEERING BINDER. You know these men and can depend on what they say: "Counteriiiniided the McCormick Order." Guthriesville fc>. C., June 10, 1901. To My York County Friends: I wish to say that in the first week of May, I gave a conditional order for a McCormick Binder t.o a McCormick representative. The condition embodied in that order was that it was subject to countermand until May 20. I told the salesman that day that if I saw a machine I liked better than the McCormick, I would buy it. The next day, Mr. R. S. Fitzpatrick, representing tne Deering company, called to see me, and insisted on my going to see his Binder, stating, at the lime, if he could not show me a better Binder than the McCormick, he would not ask me to buy. it. I had previously examined tne mc- i Cormick closely, so I accepted his invitation and went to see his Binder. After examining the machine, and after talking to some of my good friends who had seen both machines operated, I decided to take the Deering Binder. And upon that date, which was May 15, countermanded the McCormick order. I brought the Deering Binder home, and started it in my field today. Had it doing nice work before the Deering representative arrived. As far as I have tested it, it has given entire satisfaction. I wish to say in behalf of Mr. Fitzpatrick, that my dealings with him have been perfectly satisfactory. He used no unfair methods to obtain my order. Neither did he offer me any extra inducements. The McCormick people have reported that the order I gave their representative was unconditional. Now I have a copy of the order in my possession with the condition written in its face. J. L. WILLIAMSON. "Deering Hinders." "We Are Better Pleased With It Thnn We Ever Expected." GimmiESviLLE, S. C., June 10, 1901. To Whom It May Concern: We wish to say that in the month of April, we gave a McCormick representative a conditional order for a McCormick Binder. The condition embodied in this order was, 11 we saw a cmaer we considered better than the McCormick. we were at liberty to buy it, and countermand the McCormick order. Now, after mature consideration, and after investigating both machines, and after consulting our friends who had seen both machines operated, we decided to buy a Deering and gave our order to Mr. Fitzpatrick. Now, the Deering Binder has been set up on our farm, and we have been operating it and can heartily say we are better pleased with it than we ever expected. We have tried it in long and short grain, and find that it handles it nicely. We are pleased to say that you can operate all the levers on our Binder with your right hand, and the draft is lighter than we expected. And we wish to say, in behalf of Mr. Fitzpatrick, that our business relations with him have been as pleasant as could have been, and he has always shown his competitors the utmost courtesies. J.

C.: Dear Sirs: It is with pleasure I give you the following in regard to the Deering Binder, purchased this year. The machine was hauled to the farm from your place of business on trucks; was put in operation by one of my brothers and myself, neither of whom had ever seen a Binder in operation before: the machinery worked perfectly from the start: we worked two common farm mules to the machine. I have seen a McCormick machine at work recently, and find my machine will run MUCH lighter, tie BETTER bundles, more EASILY operated. Being a "right-hand" machine, was more trouble to drive team and required driver to operate levers with left hand. The Deering has EVKRYTHINC, the McCormick has and lots of things they HAVEN'T (b)T.

To Whom It May Concern: This is to certify that I bought a < Deering Binder last season from the Yorkville Buggy Co., and after testing it thoroughly through the harvest and after cutting over all kinds of rough and stumpy ground, it gives me pleas- ] ure to say that the machine gave entire satisfaction. I find the draft very light, and also 1 find the lovers convenient to the right- < hand, making the machine easily ope- 1 rated. 1 Furthermore, will say that my 14- ' year-old boy operated the machine. He 1 can change it so as to tie any kind of ' a bundle. Can tie it so tight that it doesn't lose a straw.

C.: Cents: I started the Deering Ideal Harvester and Binder, bought of you, yesterday, without a Deering expert. I found the machine simple, and to draw much lighter than I expected. The tieing qualities are remarkable. Altogether it is a remarkable machine, and the Deering Company has reached a state of perfection in this machine that I did not think it was possible for any one to reach. I have seen another machine at work and my machine is infinitely superior. It is with pleasure that I state that all the statements and claims made for the machine by Mr. Fitzpatrick and Mr. Willis have proven correct. Respectfully, I. B. GORDON. "Deerinu; hinder*." VOICES FROM GEORGIA. Atlanta, Ga., June 7th, 1901. 268 Marietta St. Yorkville Buggy Co., Yorkville. S. C.: Gentlemen: We are handing you statement showing recent contest between Deering and McCormick Binders on the farm of H. H. Nelms, a prominent far- , mer, of Albany, Ga. The Deering won j without a struggle. McCormick's expert remained from Sunday until Wednesday, but had to give up. The Deering expert simply started his binder and then went on starting others. The McCormick .binder returned to agent defeated and disgraced. We have sold 19 Binders at Albany, Ga., and McCormick has not sold onetenth of that number. Notice that the farmer was pleased with the fact that the levers of the Deering Binder could be used with the right hand. This is the first field contest in the South, and as the harvest goes North you will find a great deal of just the same kind of successes on the part of the Deering machines. We had no exoert on the grounds whatever. Simply turned the machirfe over to the farmer, and that machine with but very litle trouble sent the Mc- Cormick binder back to the McCormick agent. Yours truly, DEERING HARVESTER CO., By M. F. Halohan, Gen. Agent. ] "Deering: Binder*." ( Mr. XcIiiim Mokea a Statement. l Albany, Ga., June 5, 1901. ] Deering Harvester Co., Atlanta, Ga.: , Dear Sir: Being desirous of buying a , Binder for use on my farm, I proposed ( to the Deering and McCormick agents ( at Albany, that they each send one of , their machines out to my place with , tne understanding that I keep the bind- , er doing the best work, and which gave j the least trouble, and at the same ( time seemed best adapted to the soft ( sandy land in this section. I hauled the Deering Binder on its , transportation trucks on Saturday, and ; H. N. Hall came out Monday after- ] noon and started it in rank, heavy , oats, some of which were blown down , and tangled. Two mules pulled this | binder through heavy grain with seem- , ing ease, and the machine handled it , perfectly, making bundles that were ,-n and missine: only one. JUOl I lo"? This was no doubt attributable to the " fact that the twine guides were still covered with paint and consequently rough. Your expert demonstrated the ' fact that the binder could be adjusted to tie bundles of almost any size, either tight or loose as preferred. it is my opinion that your binder is ] no heavier than a reaper to pull, which 110 doubt is due to the use of roller 1 and ball bearings. Your truck is cer- < tainly the most convenient I ever saw, ! and at the same time appears to be i very strong. The bundle carrier is ] strong and easily operated, and the 1 folding feature makes it better suited < to this section, where we have stumps, 1 than any other I have seen. < The levers on your binder, being on i DEERIN c Local Agents, 1 TS GOO] OWNE the right-hand of the driver, can b< handled to much better advantage thar machines having them on the othei side. My driver says the so-callec "right-hand" McCormick is very hare to operate and is not as well made as the Deering. On my land, which is soft and sandy the McCormick Binder is much hardei to pull than the Deering. Another objection I had to the McCormick binder, was that it broke the twine very frequently, making it necessary to tie the bundles by hand. The facts above mentioned compelled me to render' my decision in favor ol the Deering Binder and to return the McCormick. I understand that a greal many Deering Binders have been sold from Albany and are giving perfect satisfaction. Wishing you the success you deserve, [ am, Very respectfully, (Signed) H. H. NELMS. "Deering Binders." 'We Think the Deering Is the Most Durable Machine." Rome, Ga., June 1900. Deering Harvester Company, Atlanta, Ga.: Sirs: We, the undersigned, have this ^ear purchased an Ideal Deering Binder. We live in one of the best agricul :urai sections 01 tne state ut ueorgia, where binders have been used, of all kinds, for the last 20 years. There were five different binders represented n the territory in which we live. We decided to buy a Deering Ideal Binder, because, after comparing their construction with other makes, we 'ound such points of excellence in regard to their construction and simplicity. We discovered that there are less jprocket wheels and chain-links and evers on the Deering machine than on iny other. We found that where itrength was needed, there was itrength. We found the Deering elevator adjustable, the reel adjustable, ind adjustment for every possible wear ind give that might, in the course of :ime, show up. We, too, are of the belief that the ase of the ball bearings are just as aecessary on a binder as they are on i cotton-compress, bicycle, or any other machinery, where it is desired to reluce friction. Then again, we notice that the levers are all in reach of the right hand. We notice that the main sprocket wheel is set away from the drive-wheel so that the sand could not come in contact with the drive chain and cut it out. We notice that the bundle-carrier could not be broken bv running up against i stump. The double butt-adjuster is by far the best adjuster that we have jver seen. We think the Deering is the most lurable machine, and we believe, being in one of the oldest wheat countries In the state of Georgia, we are in a position to judge as to which is the besl binder, because we have had years ol experience with them. We have seer almost every kind worked in this territory; and to those starters, who ar< beginning to raise wheat in the state ol Georgia, we wish to say that they havs aur full assurance that they will no) make a mistake by buying the Deering Ideal Binder. * *- ?- 1 A3-- ,1 Ck.

It is just like going to plow, only two hands needed, and the cooks don't know hardest is on unless you tell them?no crowds of hands to cook for, nothing jxcept the regular routine of work for the women.
