How's Your Automobile?
Now, more than ever before, you must watch your
automobile and keep it in'perfect order. Automobiles are
hard to get, parts are getting harder to get every day. So
watch your car to see that it is kept in good repair. Don't
neglect the valves, don't run with an engine knock. Keep
the play out of the rear axle.

You can make more money with
the Moline-Univcrsal than any other
tractor because it can be kept at pro
ductive work more days a year no
matter how large or small your farm
or what crops you grow. This is be
cause the Moline-Universat is built to
fit the farm and every operation on
the farm. It is not limited to a few
operations, nor to certain classes of
The Moline-Universal will do any
thing any other tractor will do and in
addition an infinite variety of work
impossible for any other tractor. You
can find work for it every day in the
year. If for no other reason than
the fact that the Moline-Universal
will do more and better work and
can be kept busier than any other
tractor, it is your best buy. .
But the greatest advantage of the
Moline-Universal is that .one man
controls both tractor and implement
in all operations. You sit on the seat
of the implement, where you must sit
in order to do good work, and con
trol the entire outfit. This means
that you can farm more land than
was ever be fore -possible, with either
horses or tractor.
The wonderful versatility and one
tnan control of the Moline-Universal
are due to its two-wheel construc
tion. It attaches direct to the imple
ment and forms one compact unit
with it the tractor the front wheels
and the implement the rear wheels.
Jivery control on coin wus aw
implement is within reach, making
easy handling of the entire outfit,
which can be turned in a 16-foot
circle, and backs as readily as it goes
forward. A boy or woman can han
dle it as well as a man.
Due to its two-wheel construction
which makes all its power available
for pulling and greater peed, tha
Moline-Universal Tractor will do as
much work in a day of ten hours
with two 14-inch plow bottoms 83 the
average three-plow tractor.
The high clearance of the Moline
Universal Tractor, as great as that of
the average cultivator, and its light
weight make it perfectly adapted for
cultivating. With a two-row cultiva
tor, it cultivates from 14 to 20 acres
a dav. There is hardly anything oh
the farm that it cannot do. For odd
jobs it is converted into a four-wheel
unit by means of a rear carrying
truck, to which any implement on the
farm may be attached in the ordi-.
From a mechanical standpoint, "the
Moline-Universal Tractor measures
up to the very limit of modern engi
neering knowledge. Perfected overhead-valve
four-cylinder engine, com
plete enclosure of all working parts,
electric starting and lighting system
with electrical engine governor, and
differential lock are only a few of the
' many improved features. It will pay
you to stop and examine this latest
and best of all tractors the next time
you are in town.
I have made arrangements so I can let you have one of these TRACTORS on very ad
