The labor we put into repairing batteries costs more now. The repair parts cost more. The electrical current costs more. Tbe natural question for you to ask is: “How can you do it and main tain the same service.” And our answer is simple and con vincing to any business man —THROUGH VOLUME. We are recharging—we are prepared to recharge— more batteries than ever before; more batteries than any other battery station in South Georgia. Because of volume you get the SAME efficient service, the same first-class material—and at no increased cost.

The market is exceptionally attractive to the man whose hay is neatly, compactly baled. Baled with an International Hay Press it can be shipped right and arrives in prime condition. To bale from 6to 10 tons a day of ten hours, use the International one-horse press. From 10 to 15 tons a day, one of the three sizes of two horse presses will handle your crop nicely. The L one-horse and two-horse presses are similar in general construction. They are equipped with '/ the same toggle joint, same type of plunger ! head, roller tucker, bale tension, hopper and feed >4 table. k , T An International motor press will average from 12 to 20 tons per day. It is fast, convenient and substantial. You can quickly disconnect its 6-H. P. kerosene engine from the bale chamber and use it as a portable power plant. Many hay growers desire a machine of even bigger capacity which can be profitably employed for custom work. The International power press is built to answer this need. From 20 to 30 tons per day can be baled, depending on the way the hay is placed for the self feeder. With International hay presses goes International service. This is a constant, prompt, intelligent service that insures the uninterrupted operation of the press. A visit from you will give us an opportunity to discuss your particular needs and point out the special features of the machine that will best serve them. _ 4 SHEFFIELD COMPANY Ph one 20 .
