members of a wrecking crew through
the heavy steel mass that held him
prisoner. He died soon afterward.
Throughout the slow process of his
rescuers cutting through the wreckage,
the doomed engineer summoned all his
energy to hold the heavy door of the
fire box from swinging open and
emptying Its hot coals upon him. Es-
caping steam made the work of the
rescue crew hazardous. The position
of the man beneath the engine made It

within a few hours. Both his legs
were crushed, and In addition he suf-

LOSS of TIME...
MAKES PROFITS DISAPPEAR.
Mr. FARMER—Any farm implement out
of date is expensive.
Any piece of machinery that needs con-
stant repairs is even more expensive.
Both eat up the profits.
Why not come to town now, before the
spring rush, and look at machinery and
implements that will PRODUCE profits?
It costs nothing to look, but it is worth a
lot to own them. Ask anybody who uses
them. The profits they make talk loud-
er than our words.

FOR THE FARMERS!
We have stocked up to the limit in order
that farmers may secure anything they
desire in hardware at a moment’s notice.
No delay of any kind, and no uncertainty
as to what it will be after you get it.
REMEMBER THIS: You won’t have to
worry over the quality. We’ll take care
of that. You won’t have an opportunity
to complain of the price. Everything is
marked down too low for that.
We are receiving new Implements and
Tools for the farm almost every day—
we are prepared for your wants.
