If- Finger Gount's Cradles ?
Each Cradle is perfectly set byhand by an expert .
who has been making them for years. All of the
wood part of these Cradles is out out by hand, which
prevents the Cradle warping and getting out of shape
when exposed to dampness and the sun.
Josh Berry Cradles.
. There are a great many makes and styles of these
Cradles ou the market. Moat of them are manufac
tured to suit the grain farmers o? the West, where the
grain grows much taller and heavier than in this sec- ,
tum. Oar experience has taught us that these "half
set" Cradles are not adapted to the needs of our farm
ers. Our Fourtetn-Finger Cradles are set to suit the
conditions of this section, and with them the lowest
grain of the thinnest crops can be saved. Each Cra- *
die is provided with a perfect patent fastening for the
attachment of the Scythe or Blade. These Scythes
' are th? very best quality wesian buy.

The Farmer's Dilemma.
Most all our days have been spent up
to now in trying to excell in producing
large cropp- but just so soon ns we
have accomplished our aims and made
a record breaker crop we get frighten
ed at onr success and begin at once to
riiBh our products upon the mrrkets at
race horse speed until we have turned
our fortune into a misfortune by act
ing the fool in overloading the market
with more producta at a time than the
demand calls for. In this way our in
judicious way of placing our cotton on
the market causes oar large crops to
bring in les? money than our small
Now, this thing is all wrong, and it
can be righted if the cotton growers
will only organize and put the selling
of their cotton in the hands of their
beat men to sell only at a reasonable
f?rollt to the grower and in jnst such
ota as the consumer demands, and
never overload the market. This is
practical only under the management
of a good business organization, which
is now gaining strength every day and
will soon take control of this vast
business proposition and manage it in
a way that will turn the profits of our
great staple into the bands of the pro
ocer instead of enriching the nonpro
dacer. Men that have stuck to a sys
tem of selling that has made them
poor, you know will stick to a system
that will make them rich, if they only
knew how to do it. Boys, tell them
Growing nitrogen (ammonia) in the
Boil instead of baying this costly fer
tilizer at the rate of 15 ceu t a to 3.7 cents
per pound is perhaps the greatest dis
covery of the age if all is true that has
been said about it. The discovery of
the art of inoculating the seed with
the germs of nitrogen producing bac
teria by Dr. Moore is of more direct
benefit to farmers than was Dr. Have
ners discovery of obtaining phosphates
from fossil rocks; for the reason that
Bvery farmer may grow his nitrogen in
his soil with the aid of hiB ordinary
farm tools and implements without
the necessity of erecting costly plants
It is now about time to write and
?et a frco package of this nitro culture
Erom the government for experimental
purposes. This package will be sent
you free of charge for experimental
purposes. Address, U.S. Department
of Agriculture, Bureau of Plant In
dustry, Washington, D. C.
Be sure to state what kind of crop,
whether cow peas, alfalfa or red clover
you wish to inoculate.
We see no reason for any one to mis
represent* this new discovery, as there
is no money in it for the employees of
the government. ?
