Great improvement :
In the
Geiser Thrasher
Separator, Cleaner and Bagger
WE, the undersigned, return our thanks to the public for their very liberal patronage since we have been in business, and will be very thankful for a continuance of the same. We are now manufacturing the following named machines, such as PETER GEISER’S
Patent Grain Separator, Cleaner and Bagger
with cast iron frame Thrashers with wrought iron cylinders, 18 inches in diameter, and Spikes 2 3-8 inches long.
With the improvements of this season the Geiser machine is now by far the best Thrasher, Separator, Cleaner and Bagger in this country, without exception. Any person or persons wishing to buy this best machine will do well to give us a call and examine our machine before buying elsewhere.
We are still making our double-geared or New York eight-horse Power, which has proved itself to be one of the best powers in use. And we have also made some improvements in the Triple-Geared Power, in regard to strength and durability, and having our Patterns right we are confident that they cannot be surpassed for strength, durability, and smooth running. We have also made some very important improvements in the Jack for the Triple-Geared Power—by these improvements in the Jack the Triple-Geared Power is made to give the same motion to a machine that the New York Power does.
Clover Hulling Machines.
We are still making the same old CLOVER HULLER and CLEANER, (with some improvements,) which has taken the place of all others wherever introduced, and which cannot be surpassed for strength, durability, and fast hulling, to which we attach a
Stemming and Separating Machine,
which makes the most complete clover machine in the country, to which hundreds of farmers and thrashermen will testify, some of which we give, their names and address:—
Peter Long, John Lynch, Samuel Artz, James Hollenberger, Tilghmanton, Washington county, Md.; Michael Gower, Downsville, Washington county, Md.; John H. Harp, George W. Bowers, Chewsville, Washington county, Md.; George Small, Martinsburg, Va., (who bought two last season); John T. Hinkle, Halltown, Jefferson county, Va.; John Cook, Daniel B. Nichols, Shepherdstown, Va.; George M. Brandenburg, Middletown, Md. ; John Schroyer, William Ludy, George S. Routzahn, Myersville, Frederick county, Md.; George W. Rhoderick, Sharpsburg, Md.; these are some of the men who purchased machines last season, and used them with entire success.
Cummings' Hay, Straw and Cornstalk Cutter.
We have the Agency for selling the celebrated Cutting Box, which is taking the place of all others, of which we have sold quite a number during the last six months, and they all give the beat satisfaction.—
All persons feeding stock are especially requested to call and see the great Cumming's Cutter, of which we have three sizes, the largest size has a masticator to grind the hull, all three sizes cut Hay, Straw and Cornstalks equally well.
McCormick's Reaper Repairs will be constantly kept on hand, all of which we are requested to sell for cash.
Repairing done in a workmanlike manner, and warranted to give satisfaction, and also all the above Machinery is warranted to give satisfaction, or no sale. Orders for the above Machines are respectfully solicited, and will be promptly attended to.
