tracted the attention of the bull
enough to allow the boy to escape.

his socks were torn and his body

ations. Needless to say Mr. Bull is
to have a rendezvous with the
butcher in a very short time.

Watkins FLY SPRAY
Kills and Repels Flies Without Injury or Discomfort to Your Stock
Dead files don't breed. Watkins Fly Spray does more than repel
flies it kills them so that they don't multiply. This superior fly
spray is clean and will not discolor or gum up the hair of stock.
Nor will it burn the hide or cause discomfort. Because it will not
taint the milk you can use it before milking and milk your cows
in comfort. Fine for the milk house. Also good for use in the house.
VERY ECONOMICAL TO USE
When one ounce of heavier oil Spray is required to do the job for
each animal, only Vt ounce of Watkins Spray is needed. That also
saves money for you. I'll be seeing you soon to take care of your
needs. ' Buy no Fly Spray until I have seen you.
