Manufactured and sold for the very low price ol
; -' os aftd s. ;;
THE simplicity and practicability of this now
Plow commends it favorably to the special
notice of every farmer; - It possesses a decided
superiority over all other plows now in use. t The
wheels are four feet in diameter, and run on the
unplowed land. Its entire construction is in no
way complicated. The plow is managed in every
manner with case, and requires only two lovers
to bo used in making any alteration. The supe
riority of the1 'Gay" Plow will bo clearly shown
by the following certificate : i
-We, the undersigned, citizens of Linn county,
Oregon, having purchased and used upon our
farms th "Gay" Plow, hereby certify that tho
same has given us entiresatisfaction. Its facility
for adjusting to suit ibardepta of furrow without
moving from the seat, ia siuiplo 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, because it is strong
and durable, all except the wood-work being con
structed of wrought iron -no castings are used.
The 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 change's in the machinery, and the- scat is
always level, not throwing the driver forward or
sideways as in other plows. ; Better work and
more of it cau be accomplished by the Use of this
Plow than by band.
We take pleasure in recommending the "0 at"
Plow to our brother farmers, as ono having no
superior in Oregon.

on the 30 of July.- We did intend to go

this very much, not so much on our own

ers of the Drawer have, within the- past
year or two,been edified with the peru
sal of a sermon on 'The Harp of a .

remarks:- ... ,-

good of the deceaspd . yet, and if the
friends hev made up their minds that I
