The construction of a covenient Gate for Farm use has long beeu a desideratum among agricul turalists. The Hoosier Gate is undoubtedly the most valuable invention in its line that has ever been presented to the public. It is so arranged that the touchiug of a spring by the wheel of a wagon or carriage, will open it, and a similar spring attached to it on the reverse side will close it. Runaways and the consequent destruction of property that often occurs will be unknown whore this simple and cheap gate comes into use, as these will be no necessity or leaving a team to enable you to open and close it This Gate is particular ly valuable to those living in the neighborhood of Railroads, and as all Iowa is shortly to be travers ed by the cars, it is presumeable that everybody will want the latest improvement hi the wav of a self-opening and closing Gate. A model will shortly be exhibited at McGregor, and the under signed invites all to give it an examination.— Traders in Patents, anu Manufacturers have here a fine opportunity to speculate, as this Gate must come into universal use. County rights will be conveyed on reasonable terms if application be made soon to the undersigned who is the owner of the Territory of Iowa. Applications for rights may also be made at the Office of the North lows Times, M*Gregor, Iowa. I. D. FINCH M. D. KVANS, SILAS re- paired on Bemmnd.
