HONOLULU AND HILO
FOR thirtj'-five years Henry Ford, a farmer's boy, has been
working on the problem of a successful ti'actor for" the
m, and for the past fourteen years has devoted much
time and a vast amount of money to the present Fordson
Tractor. Today that Tractor is in use on nearly 200,000
farms and if you have any doubt as to the satisfaction it gives
to those who are using it, call in and get the booklet, just is
sued by the Ford Motor Company, and called "The Fordson at
"Work" and read the testimony which is there given by the
multitude of owners of Fordson Tractors. No evidence can
be more conclusive than that of the man who actually knows
by personal experience and this is the line of testimony carried
in this little booklet. There is no cost for this booklet. If
. you cannot call for it, write, drop us a postal, and we will mail
,it to you without charge. It is so valuable you ought to have
it because it is the open door through which the- farmer will
pass from the hard working drudge to the comparative comfort
of the manufacturer. The Fordson makes it possible for the
farmer to plan and direct, while the machine will do the work.
U presents the widest latitude for the farmer to exercise his
brain power and plan how he can get the most from the soil,
knowing that the Tractor will do the hard work, do it better,
do it quicker, and therefore do it more profitably. This
means not alone in'the cultivation of the soil, in the harvesting
of the crops, but in a hundred and oue different demands that;
are made for labor, cutting of ensilage and. the filling of the
silo; cutting of wood; operation of the washing machine; in
the lighting of the house with electricity; supplying the house
with running water; bringing to the farmer's wife and daugh
ters the conveniences of the city, relieving them of much of the
hard, unpleasant part of housework?

FORDSON TRACTOR MAKES
Stopping only for gasoline and oil,
a Fordson tractor owned by N. Kor
pua of Luddon, Diekey County, North
Dakota, recently completed a record
rim of forty days. Three operators
were assigned to the tractor, each
working an eight hour shift, and thus
keeping the tractor in operation
twenty-four hours a day. "Nine hun
dred acres were plowed without one
minute's stop for repairs," says the
affidavit received by the Ford Comp
any from the Fordson owner.
The tractor was purchased during
the summer of 1919. In the spring
of 1920, Korpua began his plowing
and had already turned 200 acres be
fore he conceived tho idea of working
the tractor day and night.
Electric head lights were installed,
operators were obtained, and with no
further special preparations, tho little
Fordson entered upon what turned
out to be a record run for endurance.
