Horseless Farms are becoming more numerous every year. Schaal &
Schaal operate a ten thousand acre wheat farm twenty-five miles
southwest of Winnipeg, Canada, with Fordson tractors. It would
require more than four hundred horses to operate this farm. These
successful farmers have tried both horses and Tractors, and say the
Fordson does the work for less than one-halt the eost with horses.
1 hese men have not had a horse on this farm of ten thousand acres
for four years and they are very successful.
Now that prices are on the decline, the greatest economy must
be used everywhere. The Fordson furnishes the most economical
power in the world today.

An experienced hand can skin a rab
bit In less than one minute. With
a sharp-pointed knife slit the rabbit
from one heel past the under side
of the tail to the other heel. Then
twist each hind foot until the knee
sticks out through the slit in the skin.''
Pass the fingers between the muscle
and the skin to separate them and
break the skin at the base of the tail
so that the bone may be pulled through
them, thus stripping ofT the skin. It
is then convenient to hang the carcass
by the hamstrings as high as the op
erator's head, from iron pins driven
eight inches apart Into a horizontal
scantling. By using the Imifé a lit
