American Fence 

Stocks of American Fence are 
carried in every place where farm 
supplies are sold. The fence is ship- 
ped to these points in carload lots, 
thereby securing the cheapest trans- 
portation, and the saving in freight 
thus made enables it to be sold at the 
lowest prices. Look for the American 
Fence dealer and get the substantial 
advantages he is enabled to offer. He , 
is there to serve the purchaser in per- 
son, offer the variety of selection and 

save the buyer money in many ways.

This is the most complete American Fence catalog ever published. If you 
anticipate at any time building Fence or repairing Fences now on your property, 
this catalog should be kept for reference, as the instructions for Fence build- 
ing on pages 35 to 49, if followed, will insure increased life for your Fence. The 
following diagrams indicate the number of rods of Fence required to enclose 
fields of different sizes. The dimensions given are exact, so that in buying 
Fence, sufficient allowance should be made to cover Fence taken up in wrapping 
around End and Corner Posts.

For his own protection, the man who buys Woven 
Wire Fence should carefully consider the following 
five important points: 

First: Size of Wire 

Second: Quality of Wire 

Third: Quality of Galvanizing 

Fourth: Method of fastening stay wires to line wires 

Fifth: Spacing between line wires and stay wires 



The Fence with a Reputation Behind It 
AMERICAN FENCE 



American Steel & Wire Company 



How to Determine Quality in a Woven 

Wire Fence 

Size of Wire 

It is well to bear in mind that it costs just as much to set posts and stretch fence 
made of light or small wires as if the fence is made of heavy or large wires. The 
slight additional cost of the heavy wire fence is more than offset by the increased 
resistance against corrosion, as well as its ability to more ably withstand the physi- 
cal abuse which results from farm stock bearing down on the fence and trespassers 
climbing over it. 

Our stock of American Fence is so extensive that we can meet the needs of all 
fence users but we advocate the use of farm fence made of all No. 9 gage wire 
wherever it is possible to do so. Observe carefully the following illustrations 
showing the sizes of wire used in American Farm Fence and you will note the great 
diameter of No. 9 gage as against the lighter wires.

The above specifications cover farm fences most generally used. Succeeding 
pages in this catalog describe fully, every design of farm, poultry, and special fences 
which we manufacture. The heights, weights, and gages of wire shown are sufficient- 
ly correct for all practical purposes, although slight variations may occur, owing to 
nature of fabric, temper of wire, etc. 

Quality of Wire 

The average fence user can easily become confused by the claims of some manu- 
facturers regarding the advantage of Open Hearth Steel over Bessemer Steel, or 
Bessemer over Open Hearth; also the merit of high carbon steels as compared with 
low carbon steels, etc. We make large quantities of both Open Hearth and Bes- 
semer Steel, using both kinds extensively in the manufacture of American Fence, 
with equally good results. In describing our wire we do not use misleading terms 
which are likely to confuse the consumer. We know that the wire used in American 
Fence is just right for fence purposes' — not too hard nor too soft. It is tough and 
strong, having just enough spring to give it the "life" required in a woven wire 
fence, and can be spliced in the field with ordinary fence tools. After it is gal- 
vanized by our superior galvanizing process, described on page 3, it makes the best 
woven wire fence that can be produced.

AMERICAN FENCE 



American Steel & Wire Company 



Quality of Galvanizing 

The purpose of galvanizing wire is to protect it from rust, or corrosion. "Gal- 
vanizing" consists in covering the wire with a coating of zinc, or spelter, as it is 
commonly called. In following paragraphs we will refer to it as zinc, which is its 
trade name. 

After being properly cleaned, the wire is passed through a bath of molten zinc. 
The wire is never passed through the zinc bath more than once, because to pass it 
through the second time, would melt off the first coat of zinc. The terms 
"double galvanized'* and "triple galvanized" are, therefore, entirely 
misleading, because no double or triple galvanized wire is made. 

It is not alone the quantity of zinc on the wire that gives an assurance of long 
life, but also the manner in which the zinc is applied, that determines its value. A 
uniform coating of zinc applied so as to avoid bare and thin spots on the wire, is 
far more desirable than a heavy uneven coating with portions of the wire poorly 
protected. The zinc must be applied at the proper temperature and under suitable 
conditions in order to secure the greatest possible bond or adhesion between the 
wire and the zinc covering. The zinc coat must be as flexible as possible so as to 
avoid cracking or peeling while the wire is being manufactured into woven wire 
fence, or coiled up in the roll for shipping. 

The zinc protects the wire from rust, not only because it acts as a covering for 
the wire, but more especially because there is an electrical relationship between the 
zinc and the steel, that causes the zinc to exercise a preserving influence over the 
steel wire. Zinc is practically the only suitable metal which is electro-positive to 
steel. When zinc and steel are put together, zinc becomes the electro-positive and 
steel the electro-negative body. The oxygen of the atmosphere, which is the 
destroying element, always tends to attack the electro-positive substance and to 
leave free from attack, the electro-negative substance. The oxygen of the air has 
little or no effect upon zinc. In a properly galvanized wire, therefore, the oxygen 
is always harmlessly working upon, or tending to destroy, the zinc coating and is 
leaving almost free from attack, the steel, which is the electro-negative substance. 

After many years devoted to scientific investigation on this subject, we have 
been able to exactly determine the proper speed, temperature, etc., that should 
be used in galvanizing the different sizes of wire in order to secure the very best 
results. On every hand we are hearing the comment: "Your galvanizing 
is better than it used to be." This is all due to the years spent in scientific and 
painstaking efforts to improve our methods and equipment in order to turn out a 
better product. Our theory that improvement of quality would bring 
increased sales is being demonstrated to our entire satisfaction.

Fii. 4 




Fia. 1 Fia. a 

American Fence is so well known that a detailed description of its construction 
is almost superfluous. As the following pages will show, American Fence is a 
"hinge joint" fence. 

To illustrate this, we show in Fig. 1 a side view of the upright or stay wires 
from which it will be seen that each stay is a separate and distinct wire. Or in other 
words, the stay is cut at each horizontal wire. Fig. 1 also shows the stays as they 
appear in the fence when upright. 

Fig. 2 shows the action of the stays when severe or unusual pressure is brought 
against the fence. You will note that the wire itself is perfectly straight, the strain 
being on the hinge, or "wrap" as it is sometimes called. When the pressure is 
removed, the fence will resume its original position. 

Fig. 3 shows a front view of the hinge joint from which it can be readily under- 
stood how the stay wires act under pressure. 

Figs. 4 and 5 show the tension curve in American Fence, which is placed every 6 
inches in each horizontal or line wire. During warm weather, wire will expand and 
during cold weather it will contract. The purpose of the tension curve is to take 
care of this expansion and contraction, allowing the fence to retain its normal 
position under these varying conditions. 

Spacing Between Line Wires and Stay Wires 

When buying woven wire fence it is important that you measure the distance 
between the horizontal wires to see that the spacing is as represented. Also meas- 
ure distance between the upright or stay wires, for there are many fences advertised 
as having stays 12 inches apart, when in reality the distance between the stays is 
more than 12 inches. This, of course, reduces the number of stays to the roll and 
also reduces the weight of the fence per rod, which means that you are not getting 
what you pay for. In American Fence the distance between the stay wires will be 
found as represented.

farm purposes. The 

close spacing between 

the bottom wires is adequate for 

turning hogs and sheep, while 

the wide spacing between five 

top wires makes it an ideal horse

For large sheep ranches, where on 
account of the quantity of fence re- 
quired, economy in price and labor is 
an important factor, we recommend 
these two designs. When placed about 10 inches above 
the ground, as shown in above illustration, they can 
also be used for a stock fence. Where so used, it is 
always advisable to stretch one or more barbed or smooth wires 
above the fence. The lowest strand of barbed wire should not be 
more than 4 inches above the top bar of the woven fence.

We present here a style of fence used very ex- 
tensively in the Southern states for turning 
razor-back hogs. Besides being an excellent 
tence for that purpose, it makes a very efficient 
barnyard fence, because the spacing between 
the lower wires is close enough to keep out any- 
thing except the smallest chickens.

Union Lock Poultry Fence has been on the market for years. The steadily increasing demand 
proves its superiority as an efficient, medium priced poultry fence. It is not to be confused with 
what is commonly known as a poultry netting. The latter is usually made from lighter wire, while 
Union Lock is a woven wire fence, made of heavier and well galvanized wire, which insures longer 
life. The first requirement of a good poultry fence is close spacing. Union Lock Poultry Fence^vith 
its first six spaces only V/% inches apart, and gradually increasing to 3% inch spacing at the top, is a 
barrier to the smallest chicks. ~ 

All the horizontal bars consist of a two-strand cable. 

Upright or stay wires are also closely spaced and woven into each cable to prevent slipping. 

Being of square mesh construction, it goes up easily on uneven ground. 

Can be stretched tightly, same as a stock fence. 

Union Lock Poultry Fence offers exceptional value for a 
medium weight fence of its kind,

Diamond Lawn 
Fence is always in great 
demand, owing to the many 
purposes for which it can fee 
utilized. The triangular truss is the strongest 
form of construction known. Its diagonal or 
cross wires are so interwoven with the horizontal cables 
that slipping is impossible. This gives the fence ex- 
ceptional strength and rigidity. At every second cable the cross 
wires are wrapped around the cable, thus forming a perfect hinge joint. 
Under a heavy or sudden pressure the fence will act just like a hinge, and 
when the pressure is removed it can be bent back to its original position without injury to the wires. 
Diamond Lawn Fence in the 4-inch mesh is especially adapted for Lawns, Gardens, Barnyards, 
Hay-Mows, Grape Arbors, Trellises, Tree Guards, or any general purpose for which a fairly close 
meshed fabric is required. 

Furnished in six heights and three different specifications as described below.

The above fence is the 
same as that described on

that it has an opening 
between its cross wires of two' inches instead of 
four inches. This makes it non-climbable, and 
suitable for a great many purposes where the 4-inch 
mesh would not be adequate. The closer spacing 
increases its strength and durability, enabling it to stand the heaviest 
usage, while still retaining its shape. Diamond Lawn Fence in the 2-inch 
mesh is extensively used around School Yards, Factories, Cemeteries, 
Tennis Courts, Golf Links, Fair Grounds, Race Tracks, Bull Parks, 
Orchards, and for many similar purposes. It is also largely used by raisers of fancy cattle and 
horses, around pastures and corrals, because the mesh is so close that the stock cannot get their hoofs 
through the fence. When erected on galvanized steel posts it affords the best protection to the stock 
against loss of life by lightning.

American Steel Corn Gribs 

Corn is one of the most valuable crops raised in the United States. The farmer who is located 
in the corn belt is naturally anxious to make his crop show the largest returns — whether he sells or 
feeds it. 

While the average farmer is equipped to take care of an ordinary crop, there are times when he 
may desire to increase his acreage. With a bountiful crop he finds himself confronted with the task 
of storing his surplus corn until such time as he can feed or sell it on the most profitable basis. 

We have solved the problem by the manufacture of our American STEEL Corn Crib, which 
is the best and cheapest temporary crib on the market. Its reasonable cost places it within the 
reach of either owner or tenant. 

There are several important reasons why American STEEL Corn Cribs are superior to wooden 
cribs: 

Easy to build and easy to move. 

Last longer, being made entirely of galvanized steel. 

Fireproof and not subject to decay. 

Do not hold moisture. 

Provide for thorough ventilation. 

Do not shelter vermin or rodents. 

Stronger and more durable than wood or any combination of wood and wire. 

Inexpensive — in fact cost less than wood or other inferior cribbing. 

Two-inch mesh provides close spacing. 

Can be used as a chicken or yard fence when not in use as a crib. , 

The Commercial Products of Corn 

The tremendous variety of uses to which corn is put, is illustrated by the following table, which 
is continually being added to as new discoveries are made. There is no question but in the near future 
corn will become the most widely used and valuable of all cereals. 



Feed on the cob. 
Corn meal. 
Gluten meal. 
Hulled corn. 
Corn flour. 

Adulterant for wheat- 
flour. 



Hominy. 
Corn oil cake. 
Corn starch. 
Corn flakes. 
Corn oil. 
Glucose. 



Sugar.

Many works on corn, its nature, history and future are written, but the most recent and' com- 
plete is Corn: Growing, Breeding, Judging, Feeding and Marketing, by M. L. Bowman and B. W. 
Crossley, Professors of the Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts, Ames, Iowa.

American Steel Corn Cribbing 

Made of Heavily Galvanized, Triangular Mesh, Wire Fabric. 

Two-inch Spacing Between Cross Wires. 

Two-Strand Horizontal Cables. 

Famished in Six Heights. In rolls of 10, 20, and 30 rods 

On the preceding page we point out some of the ad- 
vantages offered by Steel corn cribs over wood. These 
same advantages apply to Corn Cribbing. 

American Steel Corn Cribbing differs from the Corn 
Cribs in that it is put up in rolls containing 10, 20 or 30 
rods each, and can be cut up into different lengths, accord- 
ing to the manner in which it is to be used, while the 
Cribs are cut to length as indicated on page 17. 

It is sometimes desirable to build a permanent crib (as 
per illustration below), and for such purposes the Cribbing 
is more suitable. In fact, it is adapted to covering any 
style of corn crib and is more durable as well as cheaper 
than wood for this purpose. 

A 30-rod roll of Corn Cribbing can be cut up, without 
waste, into five cribs of an approximate capacity of 700 or 
800 bushels each. Six rods of 50 or 58-inch fabric per crib.

Valuable Information for the Gorn Kaiser 

What Constitutes a Bushel of Corn 

Generally ear corn is meant in speaking of corn crib capacity. A bushel of corn always means 
sufficient of the shelled kernels to make either a bushel in weight or a bushel in measurement. Corn 
is, however, often handled and sold in the ear. Therefore, allowance is made in the weight taken 
for a bushel, to cover cobs. 

In most states 56 pounds constitute a bushel of shelled corn, but if bought or sold in the ear, 
14 pounds are added, making 70 pounds of ear corn to the bushel. A bushel of ear corn clearly requires 
more crib space than a bushel of shelled corn. Hence we give the capacity of our cribs in bushels or 
ear corn. If the corn is of good quality the crib should yield about the same number of bushels of 
shelled corn as its capacity in ear corn. 

Grain Measure 
To find the bushel capacity of a bin or wagon bed: multiply the cubic feet by .8 (eight- tenths). 

Ear Corn Measure 
To find the bushel contents of a corn crib: multiply the cubic feet by 4 and divide the product 
by 9 for settled corn, or divide by 10 for corn when first put in crib. 

Land Measure 
_ To find the number of acres in a body of land: multiply the length by the width in rods, and 
divide the product by 160. When the opposite sides are unequal, add them and take half the sum 
for the mean length or width.

American Steel Gates 

To determine the efficiency and durability of a steel gate, five important features should be 
considered: 

1. — Quality of the Frame. 

2. — Size of mesh of Filler (small mesh desirable). 
3. — Design or Construction. 
4. — Workmanship. 
5. — Simplicity of Operation. 
Years of careful study of the requirements of good gates, together with our large equipment 
and skilled labor, have enabled us to combine all the above features with moderate prices. 

Our line is complete, including gates for every purpose from a light weight Poultry Yard Gate 
to the heaviest and highest gate that may be required. 

Quality of the * n tne selection of tubing for our gate frames, we have carefully considered the 
P stress and strain placed upon the various types of gates and the quality of steel 

frame necessary to combine Strength and Durability with lightness in weight. We use 

only NEW steel tubing of a large diameter, made especially for this purpose. 

Frames are furnished Galvanized or Painted Red, as desired. The red paint used on our painted 
frames is of a grade especially adapted for that purpose and its ingredients will protect the tubing 
longer than other colors. 

Galvanized frames are more desirable because they last longer and look better than the painted 
frames, while only a trifle higher in price. In galvanizing our gate frames we use the electro-gal- 
vanizing process, leaving them under treatment long enough to secure a very thick and substantial 
coating. This enables them to withstand corrosion longer than any other gate on the market. 

Size of Mesh Much of the strength and lasting quality of a steel gate depend upon the "filler" 

r p-it used. In the manufacture of American Steel Gates we use the most durable 

Oi ruler anc j a pp r0 p r i a te " filler" according to the purpose for which the gate is intended. 

American Walk Gates are filled with a 2-inch diamond mesh fabric of truss form, which not only 
proves a barrier to the smaller animals, but adds strength and makes the gate unclimbabie. Children 
cannot swing on these gates because the close spacing makes it impossible to secure a foothold. 

American Lawn Walk Gates and American Lawn Single Drive Gates are filled with a cabled 
fabric of picket design to match American Lawn Fence. The pickets or upright wires are only 
1% inches apart, which also makes these gates unclimbabie. 

American Poultry Yard Gates have a square mesh "filler" in which the spacing between the 
six bottom wires is only \% inches, gradually increasing to 3% inches at the top. This, with a 4-inch 
spacing between the upright or stay wires, makes them especially adapted to poultry yards in which 
small chicks are kept. 

American Single Drive and Double Drive, as well as our Yankee Gates are filled with tMe same 
2-inch diamond mesh fabric used in the American Walk Gate, thus successfully overcoming the 
human tendency to climb over these gates. 

American Tilting Gates and American Park and Paddock Gates are filled with a heavily galvanized 
square mesh fabric, made of No. 9 gage wire throughout. Spacing between the upright or stay 
wires being only 6 inches, makes these gates exceptionally strong and durable — which they should 
be, considering the purposes for which they are used. 

Design or A dominating feature of American Steel Gates is the use of square corners at the 

C tnirtinn bottom, thus effectually closing the space between the gate and the po^ts. The 
VsOnsiruciion tubing has no unsightly joints or connections. The fabric or " filler" is neatly and 
securely fastened to the frame. The electro-galvanizing process used on the galvanized frames pro- 
duces a perfectly smooth surface. The ornamental tops are firmly bolted to the frames, thus 
making the ornamental top gates serviceable as well as neat looking. In fact, from every stand- 
point, American Steel Gates are handsome in appearance and an improvement to any farm. 

Wnrkmanchin Whtli the skilled labor employed in our gate department, and our extensive equip- 
WOremansnip ment) we are a ^| e to turn out gates w hich will give the longest and most satisfactory 
service. Utmost care is used in shaping the frames as well as in fastening the "filler." 

Simplicity of The Fixtures — hinges and latches — used on American Steel Gates are simple in 
Operation design, easily adjusted, and give efficient service. ,

A neat looking, durable Walk Gate always adds dignity to the appearance of a well kept farm 
or residence. Furthermore it protects the lawn or garden from the intrusion of smaller animals. 

J,^„ Ste M dily , inCreasing demand f ° r America « Walk Gates (with their closely spaced, diamond . 
mesh filler and strong frames) is a proof of their superiority. Their construction prohibits chil- 
dren from getting a foothold in the gate and swinging on same. On pages 25 and 27 we show Drive '

Yankee Steel Gates 

This type of gate is especially adapted to farm and railroad uses where the opening is unusually 
wide. It has long been popular owing to the fact that even though the posts may move slightly out 
of line, the operation of the gate is not affected. It is easily opened and closed because of the pulley 
operation, which, owing to its simplicity has the least chance of getting out of order. 

Frames are made of large tubing, and are painted red, or galvanized, as desired. We recom- 
mend the galvanized frames because they last longer and look better, while only a trifle higher in 
cost. The filler, or covering, is a 2-inch diamond mesh, heavily galvanized fabric, which is unclimb- 
able. In construction, durability, and reasonable cost the Yankee Gate offers exceptional value. 

Hanging Yankee Gates 

An auger and monkey wrench are the only tools necessary in hanging the 
Yankee Gate on wood posts. All holes in the hinge posts for Yankee Gates should 
be bored at an angle of 45 degrees from the line of the gate when closed or wide 
open, as indicated in Fig. 6. 

All our Yankee Gates are made 10 inches wider than the listed width. For 
example: a 14-foot Yankee Gate is 14 feet 10 inches wide and is intended to lap 
5 inches on each post. For a 14-foot Yankee Gate, set the posts 14 feet apart. 
For a 12-foot gate, set posts 12 feet apart.

Above style Yankee Gate can be hung on Wood Posts only 

With Top Crane applied to the Yankee Gate it becomes more convenient to handle, in that no 

lifting is required. 
It also provides additional support and carries the weight of the gate in all positions. . 
Being supported midway between the posts, as well as at the posts, sagging is impossible. 
The gate slides half-way open and swings the other half, as shown in illustration. 
To properly hang this style gate, the post to which the crane rod is fastened should be at least 

18 or 20 inches higher than the gate itself. 

The holes for crane rod hook and hinge hook should be 18 inches from center to center of holes. 

The latch end of the gate can be raised or lowered 6 to 8 inches by turning nut on end of crane rod. 

Yankee Gates actually measure 10 inches more than the width listed — allowing for 5 

inches to lap over on each post. Posts should be set accordingly, as shown below.

Post Auger 

The Auger here shown 
was designed for the sole 
purpose of assisting in the 
setting of steel line posts. 
Where conditions will not 
permit driving the line 
posts, the American Auger 
saves considerable time 
and labor, because it 
makes a hole just a little 
smaller than the post, so 
that the post can then be 
driven, giving it a tight 
fit in the soil.

ENCE building is greatly facilitated if, at the 
outset, the fence line is properly cleared of 
= brush, stumps, rocks and other obstructions 
which, if not taken into consideration, will 
interfere with the lining up of the posts and stretching 
of the wire fabric. A fence should be pig tight and 

hog tight at the bot- 
tom, and to make it 
so the humps should 
be leveled off in order 
that the bottom of the 
fence shall rest natur- 
ally and snugly on the ground, at the [lowest points. J 

Digging Holes 

The next step is to dig holes for end posts and corner posts. 
Wherever a gate is to be placed in the fence line, two end posts 
will be necessary. If the gate is placed at a corner, two end posts 
will answer— one at the corner, the other at the opposite end of the 
gate. Under ordinary conditions, with soil fairly firm and not 
too wet, the hole for th e American steel end post may be in size 
18 inches by 20 inches] the longer dimension being parallel with 




the fence line. Set the post not less than 3 feet deep, and even 

deeper if the post will admit being more than 3 feet in the ground 

and leave enough above ground to 

carry the fence. Corner posts, under. 

normal conditions, require a hole 

whose dimensions are [20 inches by 20\ 

inches and not less than 3 feet deep. ^*%k 



_^,.s,. ^Z+**n>/?#V±^-^ 




36 



American Steel & Wire Company 




Posts should not extend above th e top wire 
of the fence more than|2 inches,] 



Aft er dig ging the- hole for the end post, 
make a/mark] on the post, measuring from the 



top, indicating how far the post should be set 
in th e ground. For instance, if the fence is 
to be/47 inchesl high place the mark 49 inches 
from the top of the, p ost. Put the post in the 
[middle of the homel and fill the hole with 
concrete level with the surface of the ground, 
making sure that the mark on the post is level 
with the surface. Be cer- 
tain that the bottom of tnc 
post hole is as large, if not 
larger, than 
the top of 
the hole. 



Digging the Brace; Block Hole 

Without disturbing the concrete about the 

end post, slip the brace over the brace- 

/connectionj let the other end of t he brace rest 

on the ground, and lmake a markl2 o r 3 inches 




nea rer the post than the end of the brace. 

^This mark) will be the edge of the brace-block hole next the 



post. Dig the brace-block hole the same width and length as 
the end post hole, and from 16 inches to 18 inches deep if the 
ground is reasonably firm. If the ground is quite soft and yielding, 
make the brace-block bigger, a little deeper and increase width 
and length. The brace-block must present a surfaco 
to the earth of sufficient size to withstand the heavy 
pressure of the fence, as the brace-block carries practic- 
ally all the strain. After digging the brace-block hole, 
fill it with concrete level with the surface of the 
gr ound, attacluthe bracej to the post \connectionj 



insert the [brace foot, [ and press down in the/ 
concrete until itlis buried two or three 
inches below the surface^hen let 
it alonel until thoroughly set- 



American Steel & Wire Company 



9? 



JBrace collarsl must be in place and tight. Always see 

that the brace collar is down on the post far enough to get 

the best result s. Before stretching ascertain and be sure 

that the \nut) on the brace collar bolt is turned up very 

securely. This collar must be tight or it will slip. 





Setting Line Posts 

It is a good plan to use a line 
in setting line posts, as this will 
provide a more certain means of 
getting the fence straight. In or- 
dinary soil with a crowbar make 
/a holel for the line post 10 or 15 
inches deep. Put the post in this 
hole and the American Driving 
Cap on top of the post, then with 
a maul (preferably a wood or 
woodfaced maul) drive the post 
down, using light blows and more 
of them, rather than trying to 

drive too far with 

each blow.

Fastening to Line Posts 

It is not necessary that all wires of the fence 
be fastened to line posts. 

Fasten the top bar of the fence in the top 

tongue of the line posts, driving the tongue 

twell backward] over the wire. Then fasten as 

many wires as convenient and the fence will 

stay all right. 

If one half or two thirds of the wires are 
fastened to the post it is sufficient. Do not 
turn tongues down over the wire unless neces- 
sary. However, the tongues can be turned 
J down [ if properly handled, but it is much 
harder on the metal. When the fence has 
been completely fastened, remove the 
stretcher and the job is finished.^ 




A Successful Fence 

Every fence for good service must depend largely on its foundations. The 
foundations of any wire fence are its ends. Get the ends right. They must be 
solid and immovable. Then thoroughly stretch the wire fabric and fasten it 
properly to the end posts, and satisfactory service will follow. 

Hanging Gates on American Steel Posts 

We give distances between posts for hanging various styles of American 
gates. However, the best method ro use in hanging steel gates on steel posts is 
to have the gate on the ground and, after the holes are dug for the end posts, put 
the hinges on one post and the latch on the other, hang the gate between the two 
posts, brace the posts and gate so that they will *tand in the position they are 
expected to take after the fence is up. When the gate has been hung and 
braced so it will stand, fill the end post holes with concrete and allow the gate 
to remain on the posts. This insures the correct hanging, whereas if the 
gate is not hung the posts might move a little, and after the concrete sets it 
u difficult to rectify such an error.

Stretching the 
Fence 

As line posts do lit- 
tle work other than 
sustaining a part 
of the weight and 
holding the fence 
in position, they are 
spaced about 1 rod 
apart, being set 3 ft. 
S deep at least. Un- 
roll enough fence 
to fasten around 
corner or end post, 
as desired, standing 
fence up against the 
post, large meshes 
on top and/ leaving! 
enough to go clear] 
around the post.

Stretching the 
Fence 

After getting the fence 
into position at the end 
or corner post, fasten 
each lin e wire around 
the post, [ wrapping the 
line aro und its own 
member. i Then each 
line wire should be 
thoroughly stapled to 
the end post, staples 
being driven down 
firmly, contrary to the 
method for stapling 
line posts where staples 
are driven in lightly to 
permit line wires to* 
work back and forth 
more. or less freely. 



Splicing the Fence 

The fence roll having 
been laid down to its 
end and when another 
roll is to be spliced, 
leave approximately 
6 inches of wire 
from each stay 
at the e nd and 

splice it byj wrapping 




the end of one wire, 
around the cor- 
responding wire 
of the second 
roll of fence, 



using the Ameri- 
can fence tool.

Stretching the Fence 

The splicing of the two rolls of fence having been com- 
pleted, the fence builder proceeds to the end of the line, 
stretching the fence by hand as much as possible while 

it lies on the ground. The stretcher clamp bar\then is 

attached, the [large hook 

open side of the hook\facing the posts and in the centerl 




of the fence with equal number of line wires above and 
below. The stretcher is worked back and forth until the 
fence is thoroughly tight. It then will be found that the 
fence between the stretcher clamp bar and the end post 
needs to be taken up, and this is done with the 
[hand A. S. & W. stretchefN each wire being taken up by 
itself. 

The operator holds the stretcher with his body while 
driving the staples on the end post tightly.

Bale Ties 

Made by American Steel & Wire Company 

THESE old and tried ties have passed through 
years of refinement in manufacture and trial in 
actual use until they are now standard of the world. 
Much depends upon the strength and reliability of a 
bale tie. Heavy commercial loss results from the use 
of ties of unproven worth. No other form of wire 
calls for more care in manufacture, beginning with the 
earliest stages of steelmaking down to the finished tie — 
no other form of wire has to stand more strain and 
abuse. Bale tie wire MUST be made in the highest 
perfection possible — anything less invites heavy damage 
and loss.

CHEMICALLY PURE 



Sulphate of Iron 



For Farm Sanitation 




For protection against hog cholera, 
worms and other diseases of swine. 
Useful for toning up the system, 
thus preventing many diseases of 
cattle and poultry. 

Sulphate of Iron prevents the breeding of Typhoid Flies and other disease 
breeding insects; keeps the barn, hog lot and poultry yard sweet and clean. 

Sulphate of Iron kills certain noxious weeds, such as wild mustard, ragweed, 
cockleberry, wild radish, wild turnip and frenchweed. Sulphate of Iron also is 
of great value in the purification of water and sewage, fertilizer manufacture, 
horticultural sprays, dyeing of fabrics, purification of gas, plate glass polishing, 
paper making, ink making, photography, leather tanning for color and the manu- 
facture of drugs and medicines. 

Sulphate of Iron is a by-product of the manufacture of wire. As its name indicates, it 
is nothing more nor less than iron in solution, drawn by our patented process of manufac- 
ture into crystals resembling rock candy or granulated sugar. It is non-poisonous, being in 
various ways assimilated with foods and medicines for live slock, and possessing all Hie 
remedial properties of iron, of which it is the essence. 

Put up in S5 pound cartons, in barrels, in 100 or 200 pound bags, or sold in 
bulk in carload lots. For Sale Everywhere. 

A publication descriptive of the use of Sulphate of Iron 

in deitroying weedi and creating sanitary conditioni, 

rurnithed free upon requeit.
