It had wooden run ners, the knives were hard to adjust, it was beavy and pulled hard, but it did good work. Every year that lie stayed on the farm he made a new model, aiming to decrease the draft, increase the Etrength and decrease the weight, and make all adjustments simple and easy. Steel runners re placed the wooden runners, and from year .to year important Improvements were placed on the machine, mate rially increasing its efficiency and value. While on the farm, Mr. Clay ton worked up quite a business mak ing these machines and selling them to his neighbors. After he left tire farm he still continued to make a new model every year, until he has now perfected his "New Model 21" for the coming season. This new model is a mighty fine machine for killing weeds and saving moisture in any listed field, and it would hardly seem possible that any further im provements could be made upon it. "The Weeder Factory, Hill City, Kan.," is where this machine is now made, and any farmer, within driv ing distance cf the factory, can easily take his car to Hill City and haul one home. They are so easily taken apart that two of the double-row machines are frequently hauled in a Ford car. The one-row machine weighs 95 pounds, the two-row 250 pounds, and the three-row 350 pounds. The one row machine sells for $30, the two row for $C0, and the three-row for $90. These prices are for machines without eveners, and with 4-foot side knives. Longer knive3 can be fur nished as extras, and also eveners, if desired. Most farmers have all the eveners that are necessary for these macnines. All of the older models will be discontinued after this spa- son. Two-row machines of last year's uiouex may sun De had, while they last, at $5.00 to $10.00 less than the above prices.
