We shall follow along the same lines as in the past, except to improve the details of the business where we have learned by ex perience there is chance to better things. It has been our policy to handle the very best the market affords, and sell our trade standard goods, that will be rep resented here or wherever they may be, when the implement gets old and needs repairs. As evidence of the class of goods we handle, we would name John Deere and Emerson in the plow line, Van Brunt and Kentucky in drills and Cadillac and Buick in the Automobile field. We site these simply as samples, everything else we keep up to the same standard. We believe that a well kept Implement house is a valuable asset to any farming community, our interests are mutual, and we welcome any suggestions from our farmer friends as how we can better serve the interestes of onr trade.
