THE COTTON GIN MAKES HISTORY Government Approved , Methods DRYING CLEANING GINNING From the crude cotton gin of more than a century ago that ginned a bale oi cotton by the speed of the mule pulling the engine, to that of the sleek running machinery that cleans, drys and bales white fleecy cotton in a few minutes time has probably been of greater benefit to the farmer than any achievement of the century. The modern machinery of the Valleyfield Gin offers all the new equipment obtainable today ... wet cotton is dried . . . leaves, bolls ant' trash removed and the clean, white lint is baled by the most modern methods known to colton ginners. When better methods are invented the Valleyfield will in- stall them—we go forward with Arkansas' march of progress. ieldGinlo Yarbro, Ark.
