Kendrick Store Company The Quality Store "EverytHing to Eat and Wear** = 1 1 Case - POWER FARMING Tjt costs you a large sum of money each year to feed and care for ^ your surplus horses. By surplus horses, we mean, the horses you keep to use only at certain times of the year. By using a trac tor of a size suitable for your farm you can at least sell half your horses and you can readily figure what a saving this will be yearly. The most economical means of farming is with a tractor. Trial runs at demonstrations show that it is possible to plow, for instance, tor less than 70 cents per acre. The ideal tractor will not only plow, but it will disc, harrow and seed, and provide power for small grain and bean threshers. Recently we contracted to handle the J. 1. Case line of Tractors and Threshers and we would like the opportunity to show you the advantage of using a Case tractor. '*3 V will handle a two-bottom gang, a small grain separator, [can be equipped in 1919 with new bean at tachment], perhaps the most practical size in a tractor for the individual farmer. The 9-18 Case trac tor will develop power to handle a 30 per cent overland and this surplus power means not only a long life machine but one that will negotiate your hills without faltering. See us this fall and let us solve your power problem. Get our liberal selling terms. The Csurlsem Hardwsur® C©mpaurny BÄ« "Diamond Cdg«'* Quality Store.
