Ask your ticket agent about these specially reduced fares. You can return any time fol? lowing the day of purchase. Have you bought your W. S. S.V roads at all, where the going would be impossible for horses. It was the middle of last November when the ordnance department be? gan the work of designing the five ton tractors. The plant had the first experimental model running thirty one days after the patterns for the parts were started. This model was subjected to all kinds of tests; it was required to do about everything ex? cept run upside down?every weak spot was checked up and corrections made. Finally came the order to "go ahead" with production, the model having been worked out completely. In the last week of June the first tractor was accepted by the govern? ment. Since then the plant has been warming up to the job as fast as the necessary machinery could bo assem? bled, and the raw material secured. Twenty-five hundred men are at work producing the motors and parts and assembling the machines. This force is being increased as fast as machin? ery comes in. At full production be? tween 5,000 and 0,000 men will be en? gaged. Every unit going into the produc? tion of the trnctor is inspected and accepted before nssembly begins, so that the final test is merely a check? up on previous inspections. This trnc? tor is required to go up a 100 per cent grade?that is to say, a hill run? ning at an angle, of four degrees. As a matter of fact, it will go up a G0 degree hill easily. The carbureters in the motor arc designed so as to run when the machine is at an .incli? nation of seventy degrees; the oil system is such that tipping the trac? tor on end does not affect the prop? er feed. IGIN1A, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER t of War St; One of thea tractors lias been tipp-1 c<! on end to nearly ninety degrees without falling over. The venter of I gravity is so low that the machine l can do almost incredible things in the way of climbing sleep places. He sides hauling batteries of guns und caissons, these tractors are also in? tended for hauling other material in an emergency. Several sizes of spe? cial trailers arc being built?a three ton, five-ton and ten-ton?on which will he mounted guns out of commis? sion to be hauled back to the bnse repair shop. It takes one man to operate n trac? tor, instead of three, four or five ar? tillery drivers for six, eight or teu horses. When the allied spring drive starts next year American-built trac? tors in quantity should be on the front to living the supporting field guns up to the advancing line?and they won* ask for roads to bring thoni over.

Report reaches Tnzowell that quite a number of War Savings Certificate holders have cashed their holdings.

A story is told in a recent number ef Everybody's Magazine that gOCH to show the kind of fellows Uncle Sam has in France pushing the Huns back on their own dung bill. '1 he story is told by Herbert Cory: "I shall always think of an Ohio man at the foot of Bleme'y Hill as typical of the Americans in war," hi' writes. "Ho was a mule driver for the supply company, and the two mile, long straight road to Blcmery whs fairly lighted up hy bursting shells. The mule driver hnd made the trip once that night and then his oflicer came to him, 'I'm sorry, Ja? cobs,' he said, 'but I've got to send you up then; again. There's another loud to be hauled out.' The mule driver fairly shook, he was so fright? ened. But be saluted and climber up on his wagon. Before he chirruped to his leaders he spoke to his officer: 'I hate like bell to go up there, sir,' said he, 'but what it takes to go?I've got." Whereupon the Lynchburg News comments as follows: "That American mule driver was emblematic of the American expedi? tionary forces. What it takes to get to Berlin, they've got it. Slangily that expresses a truth that our allies per? ceive over the outcome. And the light is beginning to dawn upon the (it man national consciousness ns well, judging from the criminations nod recriminations which the press and the leaders are now bandying back and forth. "We don't believe that Ohio mule driver was so badly scared as Mr. Corey makes out. Nervouc be might have been, but scared?well, the Yan? kees in France don't scare easily, as. everybody over here has long ngo found out and if this chap was scared: it's a good bet that there was abun- ] dnnt cause. Anyhow, he wen'.?and that's the only thing that counts." NEXT SUNDAY AT CEDAR BLUFF.
