The conviction by a Georgia jury

of the murder of one of the unfor

him uuder a system of peonage
near akin to actual slavery, goes far
to blot out the uUin which liab

cutcheon of the tiouthiand by the
lawless acts of mob violence. The
same defendant Is under indict

negroes and it Is hard to under
stand why the jury failed to give
the death sentence, but they made
step in tho right direction. If the

Addition to Gur IM
The Original Kerosene Tractor
In offering to you the Waterloo Boy, the Original Kerosene
Burning Tractor, we believe we have selected the most practical,
economical and dependable farm tractor on the market.
Points of Merit on Which Our Judgment Is Based:
FAST PERFORMANCE .. The Watedoo Boy
has been a tucceti on farms for five years. In
no way is it an experiment.
ECONOMICAL .. It is a three plow tractoi
most economical and practical aise to use
burns kerosene perfectly without destroying
lubricating oil. Its special, patented Inbuilt
manifold converts every drop of kerosene into
pure gas cylinders are not carbonized spark
plugs are not fouled. The perfect burning of
kerosene saves the owner of the Waterloo Boy
many dollars every year in cost of fuel and
care of motor.
POWERFUL .. The two cylinders, with big bore
and long stroke, furnish a guaranteed power
of 12 H. P. at the draw bar and 25 H. P. at
the belt, with ample reserve for emergencies.
The Waterloo Boy pulls three plows under al
most any field condition. Hyatt roller bear
ings at all important bearing points conserve
full power. Weight of the tractor is sufficient
to insure good traction for drive wheels.
SIMPLE .. Every part Is easy to get at and easy
to adjust or repair. It doesn't require trac
tor expert to keep the Waterloo Boy in good
working order. The crank case cover, the in
spection plate, the upper half of gear case can
all be removed for the purpose of inspection
or repair the operator can work from stand
DURABLE Its heat-treated steel cut gears;
its force and sight feed oiling system; its 11
sets of Hyatt Roller bearings at all important
bearing points and its simple, powerful two-cylinder
motor combined with uniformly high
grade construction throughout, result in m
tractor that has given and will give many years
of dependable and economical service.
FOR ALL FARM WORK .. You can depend
upon the Waterloo Boy in all farm power work;
up to its high rated capacity. It is just as sat
isfactory in operating belt machines threshers;
shelters, ensilage cutters, hay balers, etc.
it is in pulling tractor implements of all kiada.
