5 Percent Early Delivery Discount On Mogul and Titan Tractors ' Nearly five thousand of our boys in khaki and blue are coming back to work. We shall, of course, make a place in our organization for everyone of them, but we wish to do it without throwing out of employment the men who took their places and have worked faithfully for us ever since. This is not going to be so easy for us as for some others, because the Government designated ours as an essential industry, during the war, and we actually in creased the efficiency of our organiza tion after our boys left to join the ranks. We can, however, give steady work both to our present help and to the re turning soldiers and sailors, if vfte can bring about an immediate increase in tractor production. In order to. do this we must move forward to the farm some thousands of tractors that are ordered for delivery at various dates up to May 1st and we shall also have to ship a large number of tractors that farmers intended to order later this season, but could just as well take now. To those farmers who are so situated as to be able to take advantage of it we make the following proposition : Our Early Delivery Discount Plan If You will take delivery of a Mogul or Titan tractor now we wil' reward your co-operation as follows : To those who will accept de livery of a Mogul or Titan 10-20 on or before March 8th we will give an Early Delivery Discount of 5 percent from the price of the tractor, (this amounts to $61.25 in the casé of the Titan 10-20 and $56.25 on the Mogul 10-20.) After March 8th the following discounts will be given: " " " " " " 17 " 22 " 3 " " " " " 24. " 29 " 2 - " " " • " " " 31 " April 5 " 1 This discount will go a long ways toward paying the fuel bills of your tractor during this season. By taking advantage of this Early-Delivery Discount, you will not only be helping your self, but will enable us more easily to put back to wbrk our army of returning boys without breaking up our present organization. You will find that you need a few weeks to get acquainted with your new tractor. The man. who has his tractor early can become familiar with it, so that when the first day of good plowing weather dawns, he will be able to get in the field without a moment's lost time. That in itself is a very good reason for taking early delivery. Go to your dealer and tell him that you will accept immediate delivery of your Mogul or Titan 10-20 horsepower tractor, so he can make up his carload shipments without delay.

The evident reason, which 1 will relate, Was the immediate presence of 348. As soon as we started across the ocean, Bulgaria ceases in her German devotion. And appealed to her Monarch to quit the scrape, When she heard of the landing of the 348. Now Turkey, on seeing Bulgaria quit, Decided to find out what was the rip, So she sent out a spy to investiagte, Who returned with the news of 348. The Monarch immediately stepped on the brake. And gave the Allies power to take, His munitions and arms and free dom of state, For he was dreadfully afraid of the 348. As 348 entrained for the Front, The Emperor of Austria pulled his stunt, He ordered his troops to evacuate, Not wishing to face the 348. On November 11th we started again, When stopped by the actions of Kaiser Bill's pen So folks, please give, at any rate, Part of the Glory to 348. —Compliments of Corporal H. H. Smith.

"Heart» of The World" "Hearts of the World," the su preme triumph of D. W. Griffith, to be presented at the Grand on Sat urday, Matinee at 2:30 and in the evening at 8 p. m., has inaugurated a new era in the realm of the screen drama. Here, with the great war as a background, Mr. Gritfith has filmed a sin,pie little love story, old as the ages yet ever new. "Hearts of the World" has proven the latest sensation in the screen world. Mr. Griffith realized that the public which became enthusi astic over "The Birth of a Nation" and "Intolerance" would expect something big from him in this latest picture, and therefore in stead of trying to out-do himself in staging gigantic battle scenes, he used the great war only as a back ground for the filming of a simple and attractive story of tremendous human interest. "Hearts of the World" shows the happy, peaceful life of the people of a small village before the grim horror war reared its ugly head over the horizon. Hie causes that led up to the war are shown; the meeting of the English Parliament on the eventful night when the vote was cast for war; the session of the French Senate voting upon the Declaration of War; the session of the cabinet awaiting the fatal hour when the ultimatum to Germany would expire. These scenes come as a prelude; then the great drama begins when the German hordes en ter France. In taking the battle pictures for "Hearts ot the World" Mr. Griffith had the assistance and co-operation of the British War Office. It is the opinion ot all who have seen "Hearts of the World" that Mr. Griffith has outdone his own best achievements and has established a new artistic record which it will take years and years for someone else to equal, if indeed such a thing is possipble. The com pany's own Pianist, Drummer and Operator accompany this spectacle. Matinee prices are 25c for children and 50c for adult? and the Evening prices are 75c for General Admis sion and $1.00 for Reserved Seats. All plus war tax. Reserved seats are on sale at the Red Cross Drug Store. „ Boring Rubber Corks.

GRAIN SORGHUMS IN PANHANDLE SECTION Early and Dwarf Varieties Are Safest for All Seasons. Results Given of Experiments Con ducted by United States Depart ment of Agriculture— Easi ness Is Most Important. (Prepared by (he United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) While grain sorghums ure the chief feed crops in the southern portion of the Great Plains region where rain fall is limited, only well-adapted va rieties produce good yields in the less favorable seasons, according to the United States department of agricul ture. Since 1904 the department has conducted experiments in growing sor ghum in the Punhundle section of Texas, and one of the important fea tures of the work has been to de termine what varieties can be depend 1 ! m JE A Field of Sorghum. «1 upon ln all seasons'.

Dwarfness is the next most important factor, while the combination of the two is extrem > ly efficient in seasons of drought. Dwarf mllo, Dawn (dwarf) kafir and Sunrise (early) kafir have proved well adapted varieties, the first and second named being especially well salted on the high, dry plains.
