Farmers Can Ride and Plow, Br sEcrmxa one or the "GAY" PLOWS, 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. J. G. REED. j Y. P. ESIIOM, A. S. LOONEY. E. W. PIKE. W.IT. GOLTTREB. J II. DAVIDSON.
