THE simplicity and practicability of this new
Plow commends it favorably to the speeial
nonce of evcrwlarmer. It possesses a, decided
superiority over all other plows now in use. The
wheels are four feet in diameter, nnd run on the
unplowed laud. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. The plow is mnnnged in every
manner with ease, aud requires only two levers
to be used in making any alteration. The snpe-
'riority of the 'Gay" Plow will be clearly shown
by the following certificate :
We, the undersigned, citizens of Linn county.
Oregon, having purchased and used upon our
farms the "(Jay" Plow, hereby eertifv that I ho
same has given us entire satisfaction. ItsTaeility
tor adjusting to suit the depth of furrow without
moving from the seat, is simple and easy. We
like the plow for its draught, because the same is
brought to bear directly upon the plow-beam in
stead of the carriage : also, bctause it is strong
and durable, all except the wood-work being con
structed of wrought iron no castings arc used.
The wheels running upon the solid land is an ad
vantage , over other gang-plows, in striking off
land and iu plowing, not having to make the nec
essary changes in the machinery, and tlio seat is
always level, not thr wing tho driver forward or
sideways as in other plows. Better work and
more of it can be accomplished by the use of this
Plow than by hand.
Wo take pleasure in recommending tlto.GAY
