TIIU MOXKOE J.H UNAl- HUIUY. OCTOBER 24. 1919.
BEFORE PLANTING Fall Seedl READ THIS In buying our Seed we pay more attention to PURITY STILL MAKING FRIENDS I F. B. ASHCRAFT and GERMINATION than we do to price. Our Motto -RELIABLE SEED AT REASONABLE PRICES. AT THE OLD STAND Interactions! lerosene Tmctors "THE REAIL FAMM TKACTOR" When you buy a Tractor, why not buy one that will do all your work, and do it to your entire satisfaction. The time was when the people of Union county were forced to buy cheap farm ma chinery, etc.; but that day is past. Thank goodness, we have at last planted our feet on higher ground, and can now buy what we need and pay for it. Still the farming industry in Union county is just - in its infancy. The farmers of Union county will make more progress in the next five years than they have in the past ten. Therefore, it behooves you to not only prepare for today but to morrow also. Then yhen you buy a Tractor why not buy a REAL FARM TRACTOR The International Kerosene 8-16 and 10-20 Titan Tractors are REAL Tractors in the first sense of the word, and Deliver the goods to your own satisfaction. Just a word about the International 8-16 It burns common kerosene perfectly, and therefore does not smoke. It has a gear-driven fan which obliterates overheating your engine which you do not have with the ordinary fan belt. It is mounted on springs the same as an automobile, which takes care of the sudden jars and jolts. It has a large roomy platf orm which . gives the driver opportunity to change positions and rest himself when driving. It has god strong fenders which protects driver al ways. It is not a worm driven machine, therefore it positively does not "rear" up in front... The harder it pulls the closer it hugs ' the ground. It is fed with an automatic set of governors, which relieves the driver of changing fuel and spark level's and gives you the proper amount of fuel at the proper time and therefore the same speed under all loads and circumstances. There are hundreds of other reasons why the INTERNATIONAL line of TRACTORS are the best, but we haven't space. Just a word about our Belt Power Mr. Farmer, you may think now that you do not need Belt Power; but let me tell you, before you have used your tractor a week you will realize you can use your Belt Power even more profitable than you can your draw bar power. Our engines are all equipped with Friction Clutch Pulleys, which are easy to get to and up where belt has plenty of room. Furthermore, you can stop your macMne and let engine run on which you will find very convenient in case of oiling etc. Our Throttle Governors on all our engines positively give a perfect Belt Power, which you do not have in an engine without governors. Suppose yourself trying to run a steam engine without governors. Unreasona ble, isn't it? but not more so than trying to do belt work with ait engine without governors. Guarantee Each and every Tractor sold by us is guaranteed not by us in divdiually but by the International Harvester Company of Amer ca through us their dealers. The International Han-ester Com pany have been building and selling farm machinery for more than 88 years. They are now the largest farm machinery manufactur ers in the world. Why? Because they build the best and stand behind it. We are proud to be able to say that we are their Tractor representatives in Union county. M Wi J - f.M I I I. n II (i .1 nl 1. ii .... WW v" V w . m .
