Tins road or dirt scraper invented by Shadrach Davis, is used to great advantage in removing dirt or gravel, more particularly, in stony lands, from the peculiar Construction of the points, which are similar to those of a plough point. Tliey enter the ground very free and easy, fill and dischago themselves, and are easily managed by one horse or yoke of oxen. Ploughing is not neces- sary where these shovels are used. We the undersigned hereby certify that we have used Davis's patent plough pointed road and dirt scraper, and we consider it a great improvement on the common road scraper, and can, with confidence recommend it 10 the public, as being superior to any implement of the kind we have ever used, particularly in sandy and stony land, being so constructed as to load itself without the use of ploughing, which is common in u.-ing the old fashioned dirt scraper ; we consider it one. of the greatest labor saving imple- ments to the road maker that can be used, and as such, we fully recommend it to the public.
