FARMER SHOULD STUDY EXPERIENCES OF
OTHERS BEFORE PURCHASING A TRACTOR
The Iron Horse Saves Time
(Prepared by the United States Depart
ment of gTlculturo.)
A tractor may bo either n profitable
or an unprofitable investment. Each
fnrm has its own peculiarities; nnd a
farmer must weigh the advantages nnd
disadvantages carefully before buying
a tractor. Ho should study the ex
periences of those who have used trac
tors in farm work, paying particular
attention to those whose farms con
form most nearly to his own in size
and system of cropping. This is ad
vice from specialists of the United
States department o ngrlculture.
On an average, one farm in 30 in the
United States now uses n tractor. It
has been estimated by manufacturers
that over 300,000 tractors will be made
this year. It behooves every farmer
contemplating buying one to study his
farm problems from every angle.
Advantages in Using Tractor.
The advantage of a tractor lies not
so much In the reduction In the cost of
doing a piece of work as in being able
to do It in less time. Thus the num
ber of acres farmed can be Increased
and the work done quickly. Often tho
saving of time is tho important factor
11 mnking n profit on the crop grown.
A tractor can be kept on the job In
hot weather when horses nro at a dis
advantage. It can do heavy work and
do It rapidly, thus covering the desired
acreage in the proper season. It saves
man labor, thus enabling tho farm to
bo worked with less hired help. It
sometimes decreases the number of
horses needed, thus saving both Invest
ment In horses and the expense of their
Tho tractor owner can increase his
income somewhat by doing custom
work of his neighbors; but this is
often n doubtful practice. Outside
frork must be done at a time when it
will not interfere with the necessary
work on his own place or lie will lose
more by neglect than ho makes by the
Disadvantages Mentioned by Owners.
The packing of dnmp soil and tho
difficulty of efficient operation ate the
chief disadvantages mentioned by trac
tor users. Where earli1 spring work Is
'necessary, the packing of the soil, espe
cially a heavy soli, is a serious ob
jection. Tho fact that n tractor demands n
RAT IS INVETERATE
ENEMY OF CHICKENS
Rodents Destroy Feed, Eggs and
All Kinds of Fowls.
Farmer In Virginia Reports Twenty
Six Turkeys Killed by Pests In
One Night Losses In Other
Parts of Country.
(Prepared by tho United States Depart
ment of Agriculture.)
Every poultryman should be on
guard continually against rats. They
destroy feed, eggs, and fowls, nnd are
Inveterate enemies to nil kinds of
poultry, from chicks, squabs, duck
lings, and young turkeys just out of
the shell to tough old birds awnitlng
the hatchet ut the close of n long and
noisy enreer. Although most of their
depredntions are confined to eggs and
young birds, when driven by hunger
rats kill full-grown fowls at roost,
biting them through the head or neck.
Complaints about rats have come to
tho biological survey, United States
department of ngrlculture, from many
quarters. For example, a farmer in
Virginia reported 20 turkeys killed by
these pests in a night. Another, in
Kansas, lost between 200 nnd 300
Chickens and many eggs by rats dur
ing tho course of one summer. Ills
neighbors had similar experiences.
From Now Jersey has como n report
of rats killing young ducks. An
Ohlonn has complained thnt tho ani
mals burrow beneath his coops and
tnke chicks from under tho hen. In
certain neighborhoods of Massachu
setts half of 11 season's hatch of
chickens and ducitllnga have, been
killed by rats.

methods by which tho depredntions

When Time lo Most Valuable.
certain amount of knowledge on the
part of the operator can scarcely be
considered ft disadvantage. The train
ing can be easily obtained at small ex
penser I too many men nttempt to
run tractors without learning anything
nbout them except tho starting, stop
ping nnd shifting gears. The Im
portant tiling js tho ability to detect
trouble the minute it begins to de
velop, and know how to remedy It
promptly instead of allowing It to run
along until an expensive delay results.
It pays to spend a' few days gaining
experience under a competent Instruc
tor. It Is unwise to nttempt to run a
tractor without such preparation. AVith
the increasing use of tractors, as well
as automobiles nnd stationary engines,
farmers arc rapidly becoming fnlnlllnr
with the care and operation of gas
engines. At the snme time, tractors
are being improved and simplified so
that difficulties in operation are grow
ing loss each year.
The comparatively large Investment,
rapid depreciation and fuel nnd repair
bills have also been mentioned by
farmers ns points ngainst owning a
tractor. They point out, too, that a
tractor Is 'not adaptable to all farm
work where horses are ordinarily used,
rfowever, the tractor can do much
work thnt horses cannot do work
where belt power Is needed.
Fit the Tractor to the Farm.
One of the most Important points to
consider when buying a tractor Is
tho size of the farm. Experienced
tractor owners rarely recommend the
purchase of a tractor for use on a farm
with less than 120 or 130 acres under
cultivation, nnd for such farms the
two-plow outfit is usually preferred.
However, most of the farms on which
tractors are being used successfully are
somewhat larger than this, and n ma
Jorlty of the tractors pull three plows.
Four-plow machines are being used
satisfactorily on some farms where
thero is a larger amount of work to be
done, and where the conditions are
such that one man enn operate an out
fit of tills size.
Size, however, is not the only fac
tor to be considered, and the question
whether or not n tractor will prove
profitable is a problem In farm man
agement which must be worked out for
the Individual farm.
GREAT RESULTS FROM CLUBS
Opinion of Dr. Thomas F. Hunt, Dean
and Director of the California

ment of Agriculture.)

promotion of better fnrming are spend

Does It pay? Ilero is the opinion of
Dr. Thomas F. Hunt, dean nnd dlreo

"The college of agriculture did not,
in my opinion, get as effective results
from nny other equnl sum of money
'which It expended ns It did from the

"These clubs have been running long
enough for us to have some knowledge
of their influence on tho future lives
of the boys concerned. I think I am
well within tho mark when I say thnt
for the amount of money expended we
get the greatest human results."
