The burlap aprons are adjusted to
the proper length by means of large
safety pins. The material is carried
at proper distance to allow It to dan-

Why are Wagons Painted?
A cheap wagon is painted to hide defects in the wood and make
it look attractive to the purchaser.
Even the paint is of poor quality and wears off quickly, leaving
the wood exposed to the weather. >
A Studebaker is painted to preserve the wood and protect it
from the elgpients.
Even when the boxing is forced into the hub, it is covered with
pure lead in order to keep moisture out of the hub.
You cannot see that, butlt's there just the same.
The paint used on a
is chosen for its wear and weather resisting qualities.
It may not look much different from the "cheap" wagon when
Ask us for the book, "The Farmer's Friend," which shows
just how the Studebaker is made.
