A Tractor that Makes Good
A CRE for acre—hour for hour,—the Huber Light Four chal
lenges competition for economical work. Under reasonable
conditions pulling three 14" plows, set 8 inches deep, it
easily turns an acre an hour on a gallon and a half to two gallons
of gasoline. In the 5,000 lb. class. It does not pack the ground.
Steers itself when plowing. And such power! A steady stream of energy
from v a 4-cylinder motor, transmitted direct to the drive. ^ Does not over
heat 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.

A number of these tractors are being very successfully operated
in the Genesee country where they give fine satisfaction—their users
thereîclaiming they can't be beaten.
Farmers interested in tractors find it pays them well to see and
inquire about these machines in use around Genesee. Write or phone

American Girls Giving Real Aid to the
Unfortunate Inhabitants of the
There is in France at the present
time a number of girls from an
American college who are perform
ing relief work of a unique kind.
They have taken upon themselves
the functions of peddlers, ragpickers
and hucksters in the villages over
which the battle wave has ebbed,

j n g re nder, to reduce costs and
foster trade, is the opening up of a
chain of grocery stores. In nearly
every hamlet are peasants who had
little shops before the war, but who
have now neither the capital nor
the courage to start afresh. To them
the "peddlers" sell staple produce
below cost price, usually on the in
stalment system. The "peddlers
have done a good service toward re
creating the conditions of village life
in the devastated land.
Except for flanged wheels, the new
railway skates are much like the
ordinary roller skates, says Popu
j lar Mechanics Magazine. They are
intended for sporting purposes and
also as aids to the individual who is,
more or less, dependent upon his
legs for Jlong-distance transporta
I tion. To enable one to maintain
equilibrium while making successive
I strokes, a balancing rod is provided,
j This is shaped somewhat like the
j handle of a scythe and is equipped
at its outer end with a flanged roller
that is held to the opposite rail. Fair
speed without undue exertion is
■ easily maintained on a level track.
