' ' 'CiSkU Progres
sive, Speaks For Wilson.
Representative James H. Mays of
Utah, in a speech delivered in con
gress Aug. 25, announced his Intention
of voting for President Wilson. He
left the Republican party because he
found it to be the servant of snerfnl
interests and became one of the found
ers of the Progressive party. He ap
pealed to Progressives to be true to
themselves and refuse to be betrayed
to the Republican party.
"I want to compare," he stated, "the
demands of the Progressives with the
actual performance of the party now
in power. If it can be shown that the
essential principles enunciated by that
platform have been crystallized into
legislation and if the Progressives
were sincere enough in their profes
sion of interest in the supreme needs
of the nation to care more for their
country and for its people than for any
party's success, then they will sustain
the administration, lest their refusal
to do so might cause the beneficial
legislation to be repealed."
He took up the Progressive platform
of 1912 and showed that the Wilson
administration has enacted practically
all the Progressive demands into leg
islation. Progressives, he insisted, should sup
port the party that has been tried and.
found true. The representatives of
"the interests," he said, ruled the Re
publican party in 1910 and 1912 and
"rule it now with even more assurance
Representative Mays said he had de
termined to join the Democratic party
"because the obituary of the Progres
sive party seemed only postponed for
trading purposes and because not a
solitary ray of hone appeared of reme
dial legislation from the Republican
party in the interests of the people
rrd be-:i;!Rc the Democratic party, un
;7er its lender, the president, had been
Moriu.fr a c onvincing proof of its sin
cere inl crest in the general good by
putting on the statute books a program
of wise and wholesome legislation."

better than any other disc drill a

to run better than any other drill
I had ever had experience with.
I bought it on these terms and
used it to drill sixty acres. It

I like it better than any other
drill I have ever used, and I have
used the ''Superior," '-Farmers

I think the shoe slide on the
Peoria drill is the best thing I
ever saw on a drill. It leaves a
nice furrow open behind like a
hoedrill. You could not tell the
difference in it 'and the hoe drill.
I can say to anyone interested
in drills, it is the best one I know
of and they will make no mistake
in buying the Peoria.
Very truly yours,

Peoria Disc Drill Co.,
In 1915 I bought a Peoria disc
drill 7-10 from Rowan Hardware
& Machinery Company. I pulled
it with two horses and drilled a-
bout sixty acres of wheat and
oats. I can truthfully say it does
the best work of any drill I ever
used, and the draft is as light as
any other 8-8 drill I ever used
while this is a 7-10.
There is another thing which
is fine I like that shoe slide. It
deposits the wheat an eyen depth
all over the field in low places
the same as when the land is lev
el, and I got a good even stand
all over the field, better than I
have ever gotten with any other
To anyone going to buy a drill
they will make a mistake in buy
ing any other than the Peoria.

Last year I bought one of your
8-8 disc drills from your agent in
Salisbury, Rowan Hardware and
I like it much better than any
drill 1 have ever used. The
draft is lighter. It drills bearded
oats better and you don't have to
clean them, and that the slide on
the drill deposits the wheat in
the ground the best I ever saw,
aud you get an even stand all
over the field, for the shoe slide
behind the drill puts the grain in
a pocket bed and leaves a furrow
to freeze and fall in and protect
the grain all winter.
If anyone wants to buy a drill,
be sure to see the Peoria, and I
sav buy it, even if the price
might be higher, for it will more
than pay for itself. I paid more
for mine than 1 could have got
another make for at the time I
bought, but I am proud of it. For
any information write or 'phone.

I bougfht a Peoria disc and shoe

is the lightest draft and does the

That shoe slide on the drill is a
trick. It deposits your grain the

buy a Peoria if you want the best.

Last season 1 looked Ca'-nr-us

could not find one I wanted, so
decided to order me one from a
catalog house. But 1 came io trie
People's Fair at Salisbury one
day to see what I could see, and
as I was looking at the eLiits
about the arround, I saw a drill
named "Peoria Union." I
it over and.liked it so well 1
ed to buy one I find it t j
tne best service ot auv arm x am
acquainted with and I hav 3 used
about all makes. This drill does
everything your agent, Rowan
Hardware & Machinery Company
guaranteed it to do and mo:
I am pleased to death with it.
I owned a hoe drill once, ,t I
think this shoe die comb'ntd is
better. It does the same vork a
hoe does and without a hand to
follow it. .'
My neighbors are going to buy
Peoria kind this year. We don't
have an agent in Cabarrus coun

sell you one right and put it on
