THE UPMH DES MOINES: ALGONA, IOWA, tttfe FENCE. World's Fail 1 Commissioner Says The Little traveler Machine is Simple and Durable, and Does All That Is Claimed for It—Read His Letter. Note what the Hon. Samuel Dysart, World's Pair commissioner and secretary of the Agricultural Society of Illinois, says about the Little Traveler Machine: FRANKLIN GROVE, 111., April 12, 1897.—This will Introduce to you P. D. Trowbridge, who Is Introducing the Little Traveler Fence Machine, for the purpose of enabling each person who may purchase it to weave his own fence on his premises at a much less cost than such a fence can be bought from any manufacturer. Mr. Trowbridge has set one of the machines at my place. I have seen it work and worked it myself, and can truthfully say that it makes to perfection the fence he represents, with samples. The machine is simple and durable and can be set up and worked by any ordinary person. I have purchased a machine for my own use and recommend it to all. Respectfully, SAMUEL DYSART. Best Thing He Ever Saw. OWATONNA, Minn., Dec. 4, 1897.—To whom this may concern: I have purchased of your salesman, D. A. Grimes, one of the Little Traveler Fence Machines and have built five rods of fine galvanized arch top fence, which I built at a cost of 49 cents a rod, 4 feet high, and think it the best fence I ever saw. I have a large amount of old barb wire on my farm which I intend- to/ weave up into hog fence, I find ilj. makes the cheapest, best and most duj 1 -? able fence for stock I have ever seen. The machine is easy to work and is something that I can recommend to everybody. Have found the company good, honorable men and square in all their dealings. WM. GAMBLE, County Commissioner. r The Most Practical, Durable and Effective Fence Machine. GBNESEO, 111., May 12, 1897.—To the farmers interested in hog fencing I will be pleased to have any such call at my farm, five miles southeast of Geneseo, and examine a string of 31 rods put up with a "Little Traveler"fence machine in 6i hours' time, using barbed wire pickets at a cost of 22 cents per rod, fence 30 inches high, Will say I think It the most practical, durable and effective all-purpose fence I have ever seen that is in reach of the farmer. I have purchased one of the machines and am well pleased. W. H. ATWOOD. All Farmers Want It. OWATONNA, Minn., Dec. 4,1897.—L, D. Fowler, Superintendent The Little Traveler Fence Machine Co.: I have bought one of your fence machines of your salesman, D. A. Grimes, and find this machine is what every farmer wants. It is easy to work and you can use up all old material on the farm, such as barb wire, barrel staves, sticks or any material going to waste, and with five cents worth of wire per rod can make a first-class hog fence. This fence can be made on uneven ground and the fence will be perfectly tight where manufactured fence cannot be stretched; and I highly recommend the company and their salesmen as being good, honorable men and upright in their dealings, aad will say to all my farmer friends, this is the machine we all need, as the price is within reach of all. Yours respectfully, E. C. BUBK. The Fence for the Farmer. ink of Denison, Denison, Iowa. ^-First National Bank, Horton, Kansas. Commercial Bank, Avoca, Iowa. State Savings Bank, Red Oak, Iowa. Just What They Say It Is. ELGIN, Minn., Sept. 17,1897. Mr. Jj. D. Fowler—Dear Sir: The fence machine I purchased of your salesman, C. W. Fifleld, is all that it was represented to be, and is what every farmer needs. Your son Kobert built me 10>£ rods of 4-foot fence and was just one hour and 50 minutes building it. It is the cheapest and best fence I have on my farm. I have taken pains to see quite a number of my neighbors who have purchased your machine, and I find every man well satisfied. I cannot say too much for The Little Traveler Fence machine and the company. M. A. COON. Patrons in Kossutb County.

[From the Otoatonna, Minn,, Journal.'] The agents of the Little Traveler Fence Machine company, who have been doing business in this county for the past six weeks, have practically completed their work and have met with a gratifying degree of success. The device which its agents have been introducing is one which commends itself as a practical fence builder, and it will save those using it a great deal of time and considerable expense. The fact that during their short stay in Steele county the agents have sold 700 of their machines, plainly indicates that their advantages are patent to everybody, and that the Little Traveler Fence Machine is particularly well suitedHo the needs of our farmers. In the adjoining county of Olmstead, 800 were sold in two months, and so far as we have heard the Little Traveler Fence Machine has in every case given entire satisfaction. The company is a reliable one, It was established in 1892 in Kansas, with a capital stock of $25,000, and the manufacture of the Little Traveler Fence Machine has rapidly developed into one of the leading industries of that great state. The men who are connected with the home office are prominent and well known as men of integrity and honor. Its president is Mr. M. Cahlll, and its secretary and treasurer Mr. E. F. Madden, president of the First National bank of Hays City, Kas, The factories are turning out 150 machines a day, but so great is the demand for the Little Traveler Fence Machine that it is impossible almost to promptly supply it. Mr. L. D. Fowler 'has had charge of the work here, and he has proved himself a thorough business man, upright, energetic, reliable, and straightforward in his methods of conducting the affairs of the company. The gentlemen associated with him in introducing the machine have shown themselves worthy of the public confidence, and the success they have met with shows in how great a degree they enjoy it. Generally it pay.« a farmer to beware of peddlers and traveling strangers and it is therefore all the more gratifying to know that the rule .does not apply in the case of the agents of the Little ' Traveler Fence Machine company, They can be relied upon to live up to their contracts and those dealing with them need have M fmr but that they will conform tq any Agreement they may make. an.d Best. ROQ»SiTK!R, Minn., Sept, 4, 1897.— I have purchased one of the Little Traveler Fence Machines ^ jj ftve built a lot of hog fence, which, I make out of my old wire, The machine is e,asy t9 run, and will say, it is the pheapeet, strongest, &nd most durable fence I have ever seen, and it |s something no farmer should be without. JOHN w, He ill Traveler. MANUFACTURERS OF Feqce Mines, Fences, Little Dandy Lining Jacks and otner Farm specialtle Address all Communications to E. P. MADDEN, Secretary and Treasurer i" 1 Hays City, Kansa N presenting to our patrons oi} circular for 1897 we ask a carefu consideration of the following fact and testimonials: First and foremost it is an evidence o thrift and successful management to se a farm with everything kept snug and in a good state of repairs. Not only is thi so in regard to buildings, but more es pecially so in regard to fences, while on the contrary, a run-down condition o things indicates not only carelessues and a want of thrift, but it must be con ceded that well fenced pastures atiq lanes unable the farmer to handle hi atock und crops with less trouble and .Teater profits; aud, as the profits are ne main inducements in running a arm, it follows that this feature requires jareful consideration. It is 11 fact which does not admit oi irguim:nt that rail fences are a thing oi he past; and barb wire, while it has answered admirably for the purpose of a cat:le fence, has been entirely unsatisfactory a.s a horse or hog fence. It is not necessary to mention here the amount of damage done yearly, to say nothing of the cruelty iiifHpted. pn animals. In fact, laws are now in force iji spine state? prohibiting its use. Then the board fence. While it is {food enough fence while new, its life- 1,'jne is very short and hence expensive. We have now solved the problem, as Will be conceded by a careful perusal of fhese pages, aud more fully by an exarni- lation of om machine and Jt§ practical >peration. So simple in its operation that a boy sail successfully operate it. So durable (being made entirely of malleable iron) that it will last a lifetime; so cheap that no farmer need be without it. The illustrations here given will show .some of the great varieties of fence which can be made with these machines, and as they are .sold upon .a fair and satisfactory trial, there is not the least liability of anyone being deceived. Cut No. i represents our Combination 31at and Wire Stock Fence, with uia- .thiue in operation. Cut No. 2 repiesents our Slat and Wire Fence more particularly for gardens. Cut No. 3 represents our all-wire "Pat' ent Hog Fence," which is so constructed •chat the barbs, as shown, are on the edge Cut No, i, of the wire picket, as a guard against hogs rooting, yet the side surface is •inooth, so that a horse coming in contact with it, would not be injured. This is the coming wire hog fenee, being made rapidly and cheap, and a lifetime laster. Cut Np, 4 represents the ordinary barb wire cut up in lengths and woven in place of wood pickets, Old or refuse jarb wire can be used in this way. Cut No. 5 represents aw elegant strong As to the universal and widespread favor and the general demand for these machines, we will refer you to only a few Cut No. 4. of the many thousands of communications we are daily receiving as to their merits.

I have ex perimented with and thoroughly testec the merits of the little Traveler Fenp Machine, purchased one and know it t be a good thing ami consequently rucom irjenil it tp the farmers of Davis' count and everyone else who wants tight fences I took fourteen orders for these machine in four days. JOHN W. PIRTJ.K, SEPT, 13, 1895.—After close figuriu on the cost of a yard fence that would b chicken-proof, I invested in a Lit Traveler Machine, and the result is, now have 20 rods of the best fence I eve owned, and could now throw my ma :hine away and have money left on tin difference of cost between what I nov have and what I would have spent 01 any other fence.
