It's to agon Wisdom that prompts a farmer to
select a Weber Wagon. He knows that the 61 years
experience in wagon building which stands behind
every wagon is a guarantee that when he buys a
Weber he buys the highest quality. Sixty-one years
of wagon building have resulted in the Weber wagon
of today, which, for correct design, excellence of
material and conscientious construction, stands with
out a peer King of all farm wagons.

PAINT! PAINT! PAINT!
Experience has made most of us realize that it pays to buy the
article of merit, particularly such an article as paint! It costs Just
as much time to put on cheap paint as good paint, but think of the
time it will last. The paint of quality that has proved its dura
bility is the REAL cheap paint.
High Standard of Lowe Brothers
Is proving its durability constantly. Prepared by the most Modern
and careful methods, it has long been noted for its covering power,
lasting qualities, wearing evenly by gradual wear and finally leav
ing a good surface for repainting. These are the requirements of
good paint. For desired results use the best paint.
