MOTORIZATION OF FARM
(Continued from Page 1)
motor -truck average 11.3 rniles, as
against d miies with team and wagon;
that 3.4 round trips were made a day
with the motor truck, against 1.5
round trips with team, that with the
motor truck wheat and ccrn have been
transported to market at 15 cents a
criminal. The horse has his special i tcn-milo for wheat by team, and 2ii
uses and should not competo with a i certs a ton-mils for corn by team;
farm or highway machine which can j that for the United States, taken as a
produce crops for human consumption.
With farm land selling at from $100
to $300 an acre, investment of capital
in the land necessary to maintain so
inefficient a machine as the horse has
proved himself to he is little short of
truck operations in the rural districts.
motor truck was 6,6 bales against 3.
bales by horse and wagon.
These facts, discovered by the De
partment: of Agriculture, prove in
pointy of time and miles covered that
the motor truck is practically foui
times more afficient than the horse and
wagon and the f arm that once sold
for a reduce figure because it was 12
miles from market has, by the intro
duction of the motor truck as compar
with the horse and wagon, in point cf
time and miles', been brought to with
in three miles of market.
On farms that are properly motor
ized increased acreage can be handled
and increased yields secured. For ex
ample, if the proper prepai-ation and
seed bed is made for corn and it i?
cultivatede at the right time, it is ar
easy to produce a GO-bushcl to the
acre crop of corn as it is a 30-bushoI
to the acre crop. The cost per bushel
of producing a 30-bushel crop of com
in the middle states is 34 cents, while
j the cost per bushel of a 60-bushel crop
ofcorn is 21 cents, and not only has
the farmer the added 30 bushels but
he has an additional 13 cents per bush
el profit on his total yield. The more
progressive farmers throughout .the
country" are fast realizing the fact
that the motor truck is capable of
doing in a third of the time what the
team and wagon ence did, and this
time saved enables the farmer tojlo
a more perfect job of preparation,
planting, cultivating and harvesting.
"The short hauls with which the rail
roads and the waterways have in the
past been confronted have been the
profit-reducing elements, but there is
nothing in the short haul that can
not be handled profitably with the

-. Big Type Poland China Hogs
v. at 1 lie East End Stock Yards, in Richmond, Kentucky, on
Mpndayj - County Court day - May 3, 20
At 1 o'clock Sharp
Will sell at public auction 20 head of the best Big Type Poland China pigs that it
that it has been cur privilege to offer to - the public-
These pigs have all had the double treatment with the . Pitman-Moore Hog
Cholera scrum and a certificate cf treatment will be given with each pig. This
offering represents the very best breeding that can be obtained east or west. In
fact, you can secure at this sale blood lines that it has taken breeders of the east
and west one-half century to produce and develop. ; .
These pigs are all sired by my herd boar, Eke Grass Giant, that cost mc a
long price as a pig and is one cf the smoothest and biggest boars in the state cf
Kentucky today, and out of sows second , to none in the state.
Maryanna Price cost mc $350 and weighed when she arrived in Richmond,
845 pounds over W. W. Broaddus' scales. She will have seven pigs out of a litter
of 1 1 in this sale. Don't miss them. Miss Cora Wonder, a sow that Bert Stafford
paid $257.50 for for me to take to the State Fair, will have six pigs out of litter of
nine. Lady Buster cost me $207.50 as a gilt and this is her second litter. Eight
pigs in this sale.
There are pigs in this sale that are destined to write Poland China history in
Kentucky- Pigs from our herd are in breeding herds and on some of the best
farms in the state and these people will b e contending bidders at this sale. There
is a reason for it. They know that they can buy as good hogs from our herd as
they can get in the east or west for about one-tenth cost there.
There has always been money in hogs, but the thoroughbred will buy' more
automobiles and light plants and luxuries on the farm in the future than , the old
scrub ever could have bought.
Remember this sale is cn County Court day for your convenience- Come
out to the East End Stock Yards and spend the afternoon with ' us and see some
good hogs whether you wish to buy or not.
Terms cash. Crates to be furnished for hogs to be shipped only.
