We invite you io our yard to see for yourself how ihese buildings are put iogeiher. Above is pictured the famous Norton Hog Feeder, that is being used by hundreds of farmers in Kossuth and neighboring counties. This feeder is a self feeder gravity type, designed along the lines of the Lee feeding principle. As constructed it is adjustable to various types of feed. We build them in standard sizes, from good lumber, as follows: 10x10, 10x12 and 10x14 feet. The feeder is laid on creosoted skids, to that it can be moved to clean ground at will. Generally, these feeders have two-inch plank floor and framework of 2x4's. Sidewalls are of drop siding and roofs are wood shingled. The buildings are painted red or white, as desired. This feeder is sound and solid, and its honest construction guarantees years and years of usage on your farm. If Your Neighbor Owns A Norton Hog Feeder —ASK HIM! We have on file in the Norton Lumber Yard office a good many letters and testimonials about this hog feeder. And many, many more farmers have just dropped in io tell us how well they liked the results they were getting from it. The main thing they emphasize is that this feeder is a big help in getting more hog profits. These users find they are better able io finish off their hoggs at the right market time, thus cashing in on better hog market prices. Come in and ask us io tell you how farmers like this feeder. Framing a Norton Cattle Feeder Here is one of our cattle feeders going up. Notice that it also has good, sound and rugged construction. We have skilled carpenters building ihe&e buildings, and their long experience really counts. F. S. NORTON & SON PLACE YOUR ORDER FOR ONE OF THESE FEEDERS WITH US NOW!

Seems like you can't keep 'em from thinking Spring is Just around the corner. They're looking over home magazines, and the seed catalogs, and figuring whai they can do to make things different around the house. They're not overlooking things like heating and plumbing, either, for LOTS OF INQUIRIES are coming in to us, over the phone and in person, for dope on almost all types of plumbing items. Even had some calls for soil pipe. Number of folks planning to build from the ground up, too, and of course they want information on the newest types of healing set-ups, and so on. We're here wiih lots of good information along those lines, and it's all yours for the asking. Be glad io chin wiih you on whatever you have in mind. WE'RE STILL OFFERING- That "jumbo" Water Heater value that we've been telling you about here. It's a good one. If you are in the market for a new hot water heater, we'll just tell you to get in touch wiih us on this particular deal. We can install right away, or whenever you want it put in. HERE'S SOMETHING QUEER! We never could figure it out exactly, but somehow folks aways seem to go for putting in new bathroom equipment in the Fall of the year. Then in the Spring, their thoughts seem io go to the kiichen. Maybe it's because the lady of the house just gets sick and tired of her old kitchen after spending a winter in it. Anyway, right now calls are coming in for cabinet sinks, the main item housewives seem to want for their kitchen. We don't know why this all is, but we're ready to supply the answers—fine quality cabinet sinks installed at reasonable cost. When in Need of GOOD Plumbing and Heating Service, Call on IRONS! WE'RE STARTING 'WAY AHEAD OF TIME Yep, we're even running the risk of boring you to death, but we want to get in a good lick about checking up on that furnace as soon as the heating season is over. So many people just turn off the heat, slam the furnace door shut, and forget about the whole thing until winter rolls around again. Thai's a mistake, because as soon as your furnace is shut down, you should make a thorough check on it. Lots of cosily repairs can be saved by so doing. We can make it for you. without obligation on your part, of course. HEATING $ PLUMBING
