SMITH'S, KING-STREET. ESTABLISHED 80 YEARS. THE OWEN DAVIES CELE- BRATED SCYTHES. EVERY SCYTHE WARRANTED. These well-known Scythes have been before the public for a period of about 80 years, and during the whole of that time they have given universal satisfac- tion, and are acknowledged by all who have used them to be the best Scythes now sold. They are different in pattern to all other or ordinary Scythes, the blades being extra thin and narrow, and considerably curved the rod or back unusually strong, and manufactured of highly refined steel, which is tempered with great care. They are, therefore, specially adapted for all kinds of land, and especially Rosland, which necessitates a fine and durable edge. May be had of ironmongers, shopkeepers, and black- smiths in all the principal towns and villages; and should farmers be unable to obtain these Scythes in their own locality, they are requested to apply to the Proprietors, DAVIES AND DAVIES (late Owen Davies), Llanidloes, Mont. N.B. —See that every Scythe bears the name of O. DAVIES," also a Red Label with our Name and Address. Beware of spurious imitations, and insist on having the Owen Davies' Scythes. Persons intending to sell or become Agents for these Scythes are requested to make early application, when Price Lists will be furnished. ¡, I J A UARD. C.
