MOTOR TRUCK ON
FARM IS USEFUL
Of Utmost Importance to Get
Various Foodstuffs to Mar
ket in Quick Time.
BIG VEHICLE IS EFFICIENT
Increased Number of Trips Alone

Its Economy Heavy Truck
Has Many Advantages.
Tlmo is tho farmer's capltnl. Tho
difficulty of rmpln.lng adequate help
has discouraged moro than ono prac
tical farmer from raising tho crops
which would pay him tho grentest
Always ho has realized that to mar

portance that lie could not afford to
"stub his toe" by growing foodstuffs
which ho would not bo able to get to
market on time.
Frank Andrews of tho department
of agriculture, bureau of crop est!
ninto, has made u very careful Inves
tigation of tho uses of tho motor truck
on tho farm mid tho results ho has
arrived ut nro amazing. Mr. Andrews
fays In part, "the estimated cost of
hauling in wngons from farms to ship
ping points averaged In 1013 about .'10
cents per ton mile for wheat, .'III cents
for corn and -IS cents for cotton; for
doing tho same hauling In motor
trucks tho nvernges nro 10 cents for
whent or corn unci 18 cents for cot
Inn. Tlu motor truck will mnko nn
average of 3.1 round trips per day
over nn average route from farm to
shipping point of ll.Il miles, while
wagons will tnnlco but 1.2 round trips
over nn average haul of I) miles. Tho
Increased number of trips alone will
place tho motor truck In the lend nn:l
prove Its economy. The fact of tho
mnttcr Is that, taking whent as an ex
ample, tho average wagon load was
HO bushels, while that of the load of
tho nvcrago motor truck wns SI
Found Most Efficient
Not only ure the henvy duty trucks
used exclusively on farms, but In
many sections whero market garden
ing Is dono tho trucks of 1 to two
ton capacity aro found most efficient
by tho truck gardeners. Whero the
farm Is big, anil the crops nro staples
tho heavy-duty truck is most effective,
but for the smaller farms tho VA to
two ton truck Is found most deslrnble,
and every Investigation made In re
cent years has proven that this size
of truck Is the one best suited to use
on tho farm.
Tho most Important points for the
man operating n farm of any slzo to
consider nro these: Primarily tho
truck saves tlmo; tho farmer can get
his brcnkfntt at home, go to market
and bo bnck in tlmo for dinner, which
was an utter Impossibility when borso
and wagon wero used.
Releases Five Acres.
It takes live ncres of land to raise
bedding and feed for every horse on
tho farm. When tho motor truck sup
plants four horses It releases 20 acres
of valuable land, which may at once
bo utilized for tho growing of crops
which will pay n substantial profit.
When the truck Is Idle It doesn't cost
a cent. When tho horso Isn't working
bo must ett Just tho same.
Against 'he possible 100 miles a day
which the truck can travel under lond
a good nerngo tenm of horses can
travel 20 miles In ten hours that is
going ten 'nlles loaded mid ten miles
empty over good ronds.
Think of tho uses to which n truck
can bo put on tho farm I It will haul

dles to tho sllngc cutter; handle tho
grain, that Is, both tho corn on the
enr and tho threshed grain to tho bin.
It will haul llvo stock to market, thus
making a saving of C to 8 per cent
over the shrlnkngo caused by driving
stock on tho hoof.
A motor truck offers tho farmer tho
ndvantngo of prompt delivery of his
perlshnblo produce, thus reducing
wnsto through decay, us when han
dled by wngon or railroad, and turn
ing Into cash crops which would other
wise bo lost. Through Its speed It en
ables him to run his farm with less
help, It increases the radius of land
profltublo for mnrket gardening and
small farms around the cities, und will
pny for Itself In the first six months
of use through tho actual net saving
It will make on any modern farm.
With all theso advantages and with
the absolute certainty of successful
operation, there Is no good reason why
tho American farmer should hesitate
to purchase motor trucks today.
