OUGHTlb PAY A VISIT to the "REEVES" MAN in your neighborhood and let him give you a personal talk on the REEVES "FLEXIBLB FRAME" principle and what it means in steam plowing. Ask him to show you how and why it is possible with the REEVES FLEXIBLE FRAME to plow over rough and uneven surfaces, control the direction of the plow, turn corners without removing the plow from the ground, regulate the load by removing one or more plows from the ground as tough or easy conditions are encount ered, or strike a rock or other obstruction without damaging the plow. These are things that every Steam Plow should be made to perform satisfactorily. Any plow that cannot is not a good investment. As long as there are ridges and depressions, hard soils and soft soils, stones, tough sod, ruts and corners to fields —just so lon£ will the REEVES FLEXIBLE FRAME STEAM LIFT ENGINE GANG PLOW reign supreme in steam plowing. One or more of the above field conditions are encountered in every plowing job and any one of them is sufficient to demonstrate the utter impracticability of many so-called steam plowing outfits.

From Lucile's When father announced that he and his new young business friend, Wal ter Dare, were going to leave Friday before last for a flying trip to Wash ington, I immediately proposed myself as a member of the party. "I don't think that would do at all," protested mother. "Your father and Mr. Dare will have a great many mat ters to attend to and you would be In the way." "Daddy, dear," I said, after kissing the tiny bald spot on father's head, "is your little girl ever in your way?" "No, of course not, child," he re plied. "Your mother simply meant that Dare and I are going to Washing ton on pretty important business, and will be too much occupied to devote much time to your entertainment." *"Oh, there are so many interesting things to see in, Washington that I can entertain myself," I said. "Father," I remarked, gayly, Thurs day night. "My trunk is packed for Washington." "Why, Luclle, you're not really ex pecting to go, are you?" asked mother. "Of course I am," I answered, good naturedly. "But your father did not say you could." "He did not say I couldn't did you. daddy?" "No," answered father, "but I fear, my dear, that you'd better not go." "I haven't been out of town for a long time, father," I urged, "and I love to travel with you. I shall be dreadfully disappointed if you don\ take me." I could not keep back the tears as I spoke. "Oh, well," said father, "if the child's heart is set on the trip I suppose she'll have to go." Mr. Dare proved a delightful travel ing companion. We had some long talks while father was in the smoking compartment. We disagreed just enough to make our discussions spicy, and by the time we reached Washing ton we were on the footing of old friends without having worn off the novelty of our short acquaintance. He had told me who were his favorite autuors and' I had named the actors I admired most and had laughingly con fessed that my two passions were the theater and automobiling. "I'm sorry we can't go to some play to-night, Miss Lucile," he said, as we were breakfasting at our hotel Satur day morning. "Unfortunately, busi ness is the order of this evening,'but, we won't let anything interfere with: a nice little theater party Monday! night" "That will be lovely!" exclaimed,' enthusiastically. When I went to my room after din ner Saturday evening I found a big bunch of rOses, a box of candy, a thick new novel and a tiny note from Mr. Dare expressing the hope, that I would not be lonely during the evening. -I must say I think Mr. Dare was very nice in some ways. He was! especially thoughtful about automo biles. Sunday he took father and me around Washington In a big touring car. Monday he suggested that I go to the concert at the marine barracks. I was greatly astonished and de lighted to meet my old school friend, Laura Burnett, afte* the concert I had not seen her for years, for she, married a marine officer when she' was a mere child. "Jack is stationed here now," she explained, "and we are having a love ly time. We are going to Fort Myer to a hop to-night, and you must go. with us. Jack and I know a lot of bachelor officers who will make it pleasant for you." Just then a perfectly stunnlng-look toe young man joined us and she in troduced him as Capt. Blossom, and he begged to be my escort to the hop. At first I hesitated, but it seemed to me that it would be foolish to miss a military hop Just to go to the thea ter, so I accepted the invitation. Laura and I went down to the hotel in the taxlcab and I got an evening dress out of my trunk and wrote a few lines to father asking him to tell Mr. Dare that I was dreadfully sorry to miss the play and that I hoped he and father would have a good time without me. Capt. Blossom and I dined with the Burnetts and then we all went over to Fort Myer and had a perfectly de lightful evening. I certainly think there are no men so handsome on a dancing floor as officers in uniform. "Where is Mr Dare?" I asked father the next day at'luncheou, for I did not get up to breakfast. "He took the midnight train for New York," said father. "I'm very much afraid that your absence from the play last night offended Dare, for he went away very unceremoniously." "Oh, daddy, he never could have missed poor 'little me," I said, laugh ingly, but father still looked grave. The trip home was awfully dull. Po ther was engrossed in his business pa pers and when he did talk he kept say ing that he feared Mr. Dare's feelings had Jeen hurt "Goodness, father," I said, at last, "don't worry. Surely, Mr. Dare isn't a sensitive plant When he calls on me, as he said he would do, you'll see that he's just as cordial as ever." But, strangely enough, although he has been at home several days, Mr. Dare has not yet called. Neither has Capt Blossom sent me the photograph of himself in full-dress uniform that he promised to forward at once. Some times I think men are all faithless creatures.
