W B Pike of the Monroe Over
land Compaoy advises all who are
in the market for a tractor this fall
or next spring to buy at once.
He states that he has been noti
fied that roost tractors will in the
next six months advance from one
to three hundred dollars. Not only
do they avoid the risk of serious de
lay in shipment as is likely in the
spring rush, but they take time to
work in the tractor at light work
and slow speed for in the fall the
pressure of work is not so great ae
in the spring.
The working in process is very
important, as it has much to do
with the efficiency and durability
of the tractor.' ii4
He advises that the motor should
cot be run over half speed for tbe
You know how ea-y it is ruin a
colt by working him too hard the
first day or so he is put in harness
end the principle is much the same
with a tractor; half speed may
sound slow but at that it will plow
as fast as a four horse team.
Another point is that if there is
any defective parts in the machine
it is likely to show up in the fall
work instead of during the precious
days of the spring rush.
As there are no feed bills for a
tractor while it is not at work, the
only expense of buying in tbe fall
is the interest on the investment for
a few months and that ' is well re
paid by the work it does during the
fall and winter.
