He saw and was satisfied. So weTe the farm ers who were fortunate enough to hear one of the ablest talks ever made on the subject of scientific fanning. by one who resides on a farm and maakes it make a good liv ing for him. The speech'was full of meat and the logic and suggestions offered were well received by the people; The tractor, which soon will revo lutionise the present methods of farming, was then put on exhibition. It is more simple than the standard priced automobile and kerosene is used for fuel. With the long stroke of the pistons an astonishing amount of power is developed. It is capable of pulling a nest of gang plows to which is coupled a harrow. The depth to be plowed can be regulated at will and all of the .operations are handled from the single seat ,at the rear of the tractor. The tractor has three speeds forward, and when freed from its trailers is capable of mak ing twelve miles an hour on ordinary highways. It can be operated on the hottest days without discomfort to the driver or injury to the equipment and chn, by the use of headlights, be operated at night. The machine is so made that it can be hooked up to run small sawmills, cane mills, en silage cutters, silo fillers and other machinery with' belt auaenments.
