Local Industrial Used
The Fordson has been demonstrated
industrially several times on Kauai.
It will be remembered that the ex-
I cavating of the new cellar for the
! new telephone building was done by
l lit" uiiiiM; jiniiiiii'ii in lining (i
Fordson to haul .spreader wagons on
the construction oi the new Ahukini
road-and has found that the Fordson
is' a great time and money save' in
this work. The Fordson replaced
three teams of mules and is hauling
more rock than was formerly hauled
oy the three teams.
The Ahukini Terminal & Railway
i ompar.y has placed an order for a
1'ordson loniotive to be used in switch
ing freight and sugar ears at their
terminal at Ahukini.
Coney Si .Morris will use a Ford
son to haul the rock to the crusher
on the co; si ruction of the new wharf
;.i M.maloi. After the rock arrives at
the crustier it will be broken in a
rusher operated by a Fordson and
then mixed with cement in a mixer
.".lso operated by a Fordson.
This is a few of the uses that the
Fordson has been put to on Kapai
and it can lie seen that wit Lithe equip
ment mentioned above that the field
is almost unlimited.
Nawiliwili Garage Ltd., the local
axle housing thru another set of bev- Ford dealers, is prepared to furnish
el gears. The drums on which the c.a-1 informal ion and prices on any of the
bios are wound are mounted on this equipment mentioned in the above ar
latter shaft. The load is lowered by j tide.

to buy and sell his own pelts in op
en defiance to tl.e tyrannical factor,
the local leader of the Hudson Bay

is inevitable. "The Call of the
