SAVE THE SHEEP?
Every farmer ought to raise some sheep. Had you
ever thought about how much clear money there is in a
bunch ofsheep? They will yield more money than
most any thing else on the farm. We know of some
flocks of sheep that have produced more than 200 per
cent clean cash in less than 12 months. Now,- what
can beat-that? Nothing but more SHEEP. Improve
your sheep until you have the very, very best.

and got a job the 16th, and have
nice place to work. I work 8
miles North of Toledo,, but the
road is just fine, and so it
doesn't take long to drive it in
the Kissel a seven passenger.
There are more cars in this State
than buggies. ' ' .
The weather is- just fine at
present, but I guess before this
is printed, it will be as cold as
blue blazes. There hasn't been
much farming done yet, but I
suppose there will be, quite a bit
done the first of April.
Well, there are quite a iew
Kentucky people in this country,
and. they have treaed me as nice
as I evenwas treated, andl want
to thank them for it.
' If this escapee the waste bas
ket, I will write, again.
Yours truly.

WAR SITUATION
At intervals of a few miles
each, all day can be seeh what
appears to be huge clouds of
gray smoke. These mark the
positions of the moving supply
trains or cavalry patrols, squads
of signal corps men on military
automobiles. On the individual
initiative and skill of the Amer
ican soldier and his" officers de
pends the success of moving sup
piies over these Mexican roads.
Marching or riding the troops
find much of the road uncomfort
able for travel because the
mountain winds drive the sand
into the men's faces with a sting
as sharp as winter sleet.
The body of J; H McKfnney,
the American ranchman killed
by ViIlaoh the Mexican side of
the border the night 'before the
Columbus raid, has been found
by American troops. It was
near the Boca Grande. McKin
ney had been hanged and his
clothing was ripped where he
had been repeatedly stabbed.
While the celebrated ride of
the American cavalrymen, 110
miles in forty-two hours' march
ing time, was heralded through
out the United States, the work
oi the infantry following behind
the cavalry went unnoticed. One
command carrying full infantry
equipment and packs of about
forty-five pounds, marched twenty-six
miles in about eight hours
This wa3 over rocky roads cov
ered with volcanic stone or else
inplaces where the dust drifted
over them like a heavy fog.

Mogul 8-1 6 Saves Its OwnPrice
In Fuel Bill Reduction
- 'TpHAT'Strue. A Mogul 8-16 kerosene tractor
saves its own price in fuel bill saving, as com
pared with a gasoline tractor.
Until April 1st the price remains at $675 cash
f. o. b. Chicago. Fortunate early purchases of ma
terial still allow you this low figure. After April 1st
the price "will be $725, same terms.
At either price the Mogul 8-16 is by far the most eco
nomical tractor becauseit operates on cheap, common kero
sene or coal oil. Gasoline to run the gasoline tractor costs
over 100 per cent more than the kerosene a Mogul 8-16
will use. Which is best for you?
You know what gasoline costs you, and you know what
you pay for kerosene. Figure it out yourself, or see-your
dealer. This is a saving you can't afford to miss.
