MANY years experience in stock

years in the State of Arirginia over
700 are now in use in Virginia and
Ni rth Carolina. Thousands :ire now
in use in the Southwest and North.
Hundreds will, on application, testify
to their usefulness on a farm.
All we ask is to give them a fair tri

corn and cob meal; corn meal, from
which two-thirds can be sifted for
bread; hominy, coarse or fiut'j grind
ing of wheat, barley, rye, &c. and is a
good corn shelter. Quantity varying
according to power applied.
Having purchased from the Agent of
the inventor the exclusive right of sell

of old Edgecombe, we take pleasure in
recommending them to the farmers in
the above county; and from a desire to
have them in general use, we will sell
