Any advantages it might possess are offset by the fact that it is a stranger on its own roads. It rides the ridges, which causes broken axles, wheels and other parts, and the tongue whips about which is hard on the team. The justly famous Weber wagon 13 built only in 56* auto-track because this is the standard approved tread of automobiles'—-and the automobile makes the ruts in mud or soft roads. If the farm wagon is not made to follow the same path it is out of date for road service. Automobiles are increasing among farmers because they are a time-saving necessity, and every farmer automobile intends to procure one at the earliest opportunity. £ M X > ul < X pi H > D O -J O H CL ■v C H Q m < U u H > I < X V.

I hereby publicly congrat ulate Mr. Weeks on the splendid race that he made and assure him of hearty support during the next four years.
