WHERE MACHINERY GOES.
One season without shelu~ r will
damage farm machinery more than
the wear caused by its use during the
season. The action of the weat] -er
which will cause a rusting of the iron
and steel, as well as the rotting of
the wood parts, will seriously inter

when it Is again put to use. By this
exposure certain parts are very much
more weakened and the machine be
comes of shorter life.
