The Fordson Tractor is taking much of the
drudgery out of farm life ; it is solving the labor
problem; it is reducing the cost of preparing
land by almost one half of what it was with
horses; and it is saving one third to one half
of the farmer's time; and making farm life
more attractive.
The Fordson will run your threshing machine
-and at the most opportune time for you. It
will operate the milking machines, saw your
wood, fill your silo, pump the water, and take
care of every kind of belt work
And don't forget-it will plow six to eight
acres in a ten hour day, handling two plows
with ease.
Thus the Fordson is the ideal year-round trac
tor. It will pay for its fall and winter keep in
many ways.
There's a big story to tell you about the Ford
son-and a trae one-come in and get the facts.
Or, if you prefer, telephone or drop un a card
and we will bring them to you.
