al manager, "call it 'The Star

"Why?" asked the proprietor.
"Then the actors will ail fight
to get in," said the mauager.

Then he looked up and muttered:

Farmers Can Add 40 percent to Gains
Think of it! Sane, sensible men—by the hundreds—
are working hard almost the year round, raising the most
valuable crops—"Kafir and Indian corn"—and then de-
liberately wasting 40 per cent of thc gross results of their
We all know that the last two years the farmers have
realized practically nothing from their CORN crop, why?
Because the farmers in this part of Oklahoma have not
taken the SILO as an absolute necessity. They are not
cutting their corn after the season and storing the rich
fodder away to increase their incomes the year round.
Here are examplpes of what one acre has done for
Agricultural Stations in Kansas and Oklahoma.
One acre of good corn land will produce 12 tons of
Corn Silage, which will put 2400 pounds weight on 50
Lambs in 125 days; at 7c per pound this would amount to
$168.00; or, feeding this 12 tons to four steers for 153
days would easily increase their value $170.00. These
are some of the things you can accomplish by having our
COMMON SENSE SILO." And when you come to
consider that this entire 12 tons of silage—the product
of just one acre—can be put into a Silo at a cost of only
$25.00, you can get an idea of what you are saving by
preserving your corn and fodder, rather than letting it
dry out in the field or shock, where you are getting prac-
tically nothing out of it.
FARMERS, BUILD SILOS'
DON'T WAIT! DO
Our Common Sense Silo is the cheapest and most
practicable Silo on the market. Come in and see our
