Plymouth Binding Twine A Comparative Statement showing the Cost and Value of Binding Twine, based on the supposition that a farmer needs, to bind his grain, 300 pounds of Plymouth Sisal, or Standard Twine, which runs 505 feet to the pound. Three hundred pounds of Plymouth Standard or Sisal will give Wm 151,500 feet. 151,500 ft. of 505 ft to the lb., weighs 300 lbs. @ 14c will cost $42.00 151,500 ft. of 480 ft. to the lb., weigliB 3lof. lbs. @ 14c will cost §44.19 151,500 ft. of 470 ft. to the lb., weighs 322J lbs. @ 14c will cost §45.13 151,500 ft. of 450 ft. to the lb., weighs 336J. lbs. @ 14c will cost §47.13 151,500 ft. of 430 ft. to the lb., weighs 352^ lbs. @ 14c will cost §49.33 We have recently tested twine sent us for examination, that averaged a little less than 430 feet to the pound. The PLYMOUTH Twines are the only ones of these grades that run 505 feet to the pound. You save by buying them, over the lowest grade, S7.33on 300 pounds, or S2.44 per 100; or 2 44-100 cents per pound. Therefore, if Plymouth sells for 14 cents per pound, the other should sell for 11 66-100 cents, to be as cheap, and others in proportion The Moral is. buy PLYMOUTH Twine, and save money, and the annoyanee of loose bundles, caused by poor twine. E. W. Ford & Son, Agents J"-o___"t3 recei^ved To sell at 16c. Dozen And this is always the place to buy Lemons, Bananas, figs and Dates. We have the finest Chocolate Drop in town at 20c a pound. G.
