THE GREAT DESIDERATUM, OR THE IMPROVED CULTIVATOR PLOUGH. . THE ABOVE ARE CUTS OF ELDRED'S CULTIVATOR PLOUGH, PATENTED DEC. 20, 1845, WHICH STANDS PRE-EMINENT AS AN INSTRUMENT IN HUSBANDRY, BEING A SAVING OF ONE-HALF THE LABOR AND TIME COMPARED WITH THE FORMER IMPROVEMENTS IN PLOWING OR CULTIVATING THE SOIL. THE CULTIVATOR COMBINES THE ADVANTAGES IN A VERY CONSIDERABLE DEGREE OF THE PLOUGH AND HARROW BOTH IN THE EFFICIENCY AND RAPIDITY OF THE WORK PERFORMED. IT MAY WITH PROPRIETY BE CALLED THE HORSE HOE. THIS CULTIVATOR IS THE ONLY ONE OVER WHICH WE HAVE PERFECT CONTROL OF EACH PLOUGH IN REGULATING EACH AT PLEASURE.
