A New McCormick-Deering Planter Assures Positive, Accurate Planting It Saves Seed and Increases Efficiency! G O into your fields this spring with a new McCormick - Deering Corn Planter and you will have complete confidence that your corn is being given the best possible start. The dependable, durable clutch in McCormick-Deering Planters works unfailingly every time the check fork is tripped. Plunger-type valves provide proper placing of the hills. It is impossible to get the seed plates out of time with the receiving valves. Accumulation of the desired 2, 3, or 4 kernels to the hill before the valves open is always certain. The_ split-row fertilizer boot available for McCormick Deering checkrow planters deposits the fertilizer in the soil on both sides of the hill —the fertilizer cannot come in contact with the seed. These are some of the features that make McCormick- Deering Corn Planters so awn- rate. They mean the maximum efficiency in planting. Jk McCormick-Deering includes checkrow planters w \ drills for horse or Farmsll • operation. The checkrow plant*' era can be used for checK rowing, drilling, or hill -drillinfr Ask us to show them to you. Postville Lumber Co. E. A. HOTH
