Tractor THE TRACTOR THAT FLAKES GOOD It Burns Gasoline or Coal Oil Acre for acre-hour for hour-the Huber Light Four challenges competition for economical work. Under reasonable conditions, pulling three 14-inch plows, set 8 inches deep, it easily turns an acre an hour on a gallon a half to two gal Ions of fuel. In the 5,000 lb. class, it does not pack the ground; never stalls. Steers itself when plowing. And such power-a steady stream of energy from a 4-cylinder motor, transmitted direct to the drive on Dyatt roller beairings. Does not overheat in extreme weather. Self-lubricating, anti-friction bearings. It turns in a six foot radius and is mounted on its powerful frame so as to adjust itself to the roughest fields. Twelve horse power at the draw-bar, with a road speed of from 2 1-2 to 4 miles per hour; 25h. p. at the belt, operating, separator, silo filler, saw, pump, ba ler or any other farm maciiery. It is built for lifelong service by the Huber Mfg. Co., Marion, Ohio, established more than forty years.

Because a thorough business education, with shorthand and typewriting, gives the greatest guarantee of success. You must make a LIVING whether you want to or not. The right kind of a business education gives the surest means of acquiring the former, and the easiest way to make the latter. Because its faculty greets its audience each morning' with interest so vital, purposes so useful, originality so varied, ideas so new, fresh and bountiful that each day's work is a performance possible only to such co-operative forces Because the methods employed in both the COMMER CIAL AND SHORTHAND departments are simple, easy, fascinating, and the time required to master them is aboat one-half the time it takes to lnalf-way master the old, systems.
