" GAY" PLOWS,
Manufactured and sold for the very low price ol
$65 and $75. v;
rjrtnE simplicity and practicability of this sew
JL Plow commends it favorably to the special
nutiee of every farmer. It possesses a decided
superiority over all otherplows now in use. The
wbce.o are tour ieot in ammeter, and run on the
nnplowed landvi Its enure cunstf netion is in no
way complicated.' Tbe plow is managed in every
manner with ease, and requires only two levers
to be used in ranking any alteration. Tbe supe
riority of the "Gay" Plow will be clearly shown
by the following certificate ; ; i
We, the undersigned, citizens of Linn county.
Oregon, having purchased and used upon our
farms the "Gay" Plow, bcrehy , certify that the
came has given us entire satisfaction. Its facility
for adjusting to suitbe eVpih of furrow without
movi g fronv tbe seat.ts simple and easy. : We
like the plv for its draught, because the same is
brought toTbear directly upon the plow-beam in
stead of the earriago ; also, iecause.it is strong
and durable, all except the wood-work being con
structed of wrought iron no ca tings are nsed.
Tbe wheels running upon the solid land is an ad
vantage over other gang-plows, in striking off
land and in plowing, not having to make the nec
essary changes in the machinery, and the seat is
always level, not thr wing the 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 band.
We take pleasure in recommending the "Gay"
Plow to our brother farmers, as one having no
superior in -Oregon.. -
