The Big-Six Touring is a seven-pas aengcr car with a seven-passenger motor and seven-passenger dimensions throughout. It distinctly is not a seven passenger body mounted on a live passenger chassis. The Big-Six will take the steepest hills on high. It w ill maintain a high rate of speed over long stretches hour after hour. No car provides more rest ftil riding—none is easier to operate. None is freer from frequent repairs. Equipment is complete, even to an ex tra wheel with tire, tube and tire cover. Its low price is due to large volume and to the fact that Studebaker over head is shared by three models—all sixes. Then, too, only one manufac turing profit is included in the Big-Six price because all vital parts are manu factured in Studebaker plants. If you spend more than the Big-Six price you can buy more weight and bulkiness and pay more for overhead and operation, but you will not get a better automobile.

THIS IS A STUDEBAKER YEAR / A CONVENIENCE 01 ANY HOUSEHOLD Servirrg Tray Saves Housewife’* Time and Strength in Many Different Ways. (Prepared by the United Statee Depart meat of Agriculture.) A serving tray ou castors or wheels, sometimes called a "wheel-tray," "tea wagon," or "tea-cart,” Is s household convenience that saves the housewife’s time atul strength In many ways. A boy or man handy with simple tools can make one; a number of women, similarly skillful, have ulso mads them. In a Virginia home recently a very successful wheel-tray was made out of an old washstand, utilizing the largo drawer, the top, the framework, and other parts. To roll such a tray arouud conveniently, swivel castor* may be provided from some discarded piece of furniture, small swivel wheels or the small wheels of a buby car riage or toy wagon. In the servlug tray Illustrated the wheels were evi dently taken from a child’s wagon. A wheel tray saves many trips between the dining room and kitchen, both In serving and in clearing away meals, especially in a large household where many dishes must be handled. The top and shelf spaces are sufficient to Wheel Tray Saves Many Trips Bo tween Dining Room and Kltchsn. carry all dishes to the table In one trip, or to remove them from It after the meal. Steps are saved by it la serving refreshments at social occa sions. It is invaluable for use aa a bedside tray in the sick room. When well made the tray is attractive ei well as useful and may serve as a reading table or flower stand. It may be stained dark or enameled white to harmonize with the dining room and Its furnishings. The space in the top may he used to keep dishes in, and the drawer will store sliver and table linen. Dimensions for Tray. The United States Department of Agriculture recommend* the dimen sions given below for making a con venient serving tray which will go through doorways without danger of bumping. The upper part of the tray Is box shaped, 1C inches wide and 30 Inches long. The box part, or china compartment, ia 4Vi Inches deep. This Is upheld by 4 legs, H by 1% Inches, which measure 81 Inches from the floor to the top of the tray. It la boat to edge the top of the tray or the Drawer la Ueeful to More Silver and Table Linen.

Below this serving compartment li a drawer 2 Inches deep, which la dl vlded into two parts. One side is used for linen and one side for silver. The side used for sliver Is lined with dark colored felt or outing flannel. In the space below the drawer ■ large uudershelf la fitted. It should be edged with molding about 1^4 lnchee wide, so that soiled dishes may be safely placed on It. One handle maj be put on If preferred, Instead of the two shown In the Illustration, for pull ing or pushing the louded tra,y about These handles may be made from old broomsticks. Cleanse Marble Slab. To cleanse the marble slab out a slice of lemon, dip It In salt and mb it over the marble; let It remain an hour, then wash the slab In the uaual way. A mixture of aaleratns and whltfni will remove atalns from marble. Warm a Knife-Beard.

(Frapared by tfce United Stated Department of A«rloultura.) Progress In the “Better Sires—Better Stock’’ campajjgn broke all previous VScortlS, auu~ the number 01 lne slock 1 owners participating passed the 10.000 mark during the first three months ol 1028, as shown by a report Just Issued by the United States Departnfem ol Agriculture. A totul of 1,177 pei^onl were enrolled during the three-months’ i period after having filed with the de-1 partment written agreements to use i purebred sires exclusively henceforth.1 This is the highest number enrolled during any quarterly period since the campaign begun three and one-half years ago. States showing the prin cipal activity in tills means of Improv ing their live stock were: Vermont, West Virginia, Ohio, Virginia, Ken tucky, Washington, Nebraska, Texas, and Indiana. The number of live stock and poultry listed for Improvement during the period totaled more than 116.000. Government officials who have been In close touch with the movement since j lta beginning three and one-half year* ! ago are much gratliied with the latest results. The continued Interest being shown In the campaign throughout the ] country shows the permanent nature of the popularity of the purebred sire, and points to greater possibilities In the future. The list of persons who are using purebred sires exclusively, now totals 10,100. These live stock breeders have placed more than 1,200, | 000 head of live stock and poultry on a purebred-sire basis. On an average 35 per cent of tin* female unlraals and 60 per cent of the female poultry, kept by these persons, are also purebred. Much year that purebred sires are used by these breeders, therefore, greatly I Increases the total number of pure ly bred animals In the country. Standing of States Changes. During the three-months' period, Ver ! roont and West Virginia showed the j greatest number of enrollments, caus | lng some changes lu the relative stand ing of the states active In the work. Vermont, which previously stood ! seventh In the list (and six months ago j tenth) Is now fifth; while West Vlr glnla surpassed nine states, advancing I from seventeenth to eighth place. West j Virginia, where legislation outlawing scrub sires became effective Januurj 1, enrolled more than three times as many jiersons during the quarter as during all of the 13 previous quarters. On ‘'Roll of Honor.” Four new counties, two of them in Vermont, one in Ohio, and the othei In Nebraska, appear on the roll of counties having 100 or more persons using purebred sires exclusively This brings the total to 20 counties. Rock ingham county, Virginia, (Ohas. \V. Wampler, county agent) led for th« quarter with 103 new enrollments; while Miami county, Ohio, (C. M. Senn, county agent) advanced In th« county standing from eleventh to fifth place. Evidence of continued activity dur ing the coming months comes from various sources. The demand for en rollment blanks Is unprecedented In the history of the campaign. From Kentucky, which Is fourth on the list of states, cornea word to the depart ment through Wayland Rhoades. Held agent In animal husbandry, that on May 3 there will be held a better-sirs sale at which 100 purebred bulls will be put up at auction, and that official! are planning more things for the fu ture.

United States Depart ment of Agriculture, Washington, D. O Yearling Fruit Trees Overtake Larger Ones Yearling trees of some fruits ars quite small trees while of the peacb they will be as large as they should be at all for planting out. If they art first class. With all the fruits, the yearling trees will grow more surely and muny times will overtake the larger trees In a couple of years, even when they start promptly, and ons fault with large trees Is slow starting. The small trees having less root spread are damaged less In the digging, and the small tops make leas demand oo the roots. Spread Manure Thin in Every Short Rotation Best evidence Indicate! th«t manure gives largest return! to the ton wnen applied tliln once In each short rota tion, or twice In a rotation of more than five year!. Bight to ten tong to the acre in a three or four-year rota tion, used with an average of 200 pounds of acid phosphate to the acre each year, give excellent returns, the New York State College of Agriculture at Ithaca has found. A manure spread er la said to be a time and labor saver, particularly In making light applica tions, and It tears up the manure ao It Is mixed more uniformly with the soli. 8ave Soli Moisture. The conservation of soli moisture Is one of the most Important roles of till age. The moisture of the soil around the plant is rapidly exhausted by being taken up by the plant and evaporated through the leaves.
