'The Tractor will enable the farmer to
work fewer hours in the day, giving him
more time to enjoy life. I believe the trac

--the most pleasant, the most healthful,

This tractor has done much-very much
in bringing true Mr. Ford's prophecy; for in
it is a machine which has harnessed one of
the most dependable, efficient, adaptable,
economical sources of power in the world
a'machine that saves from thirty to fifty
per cent of the farmer's time - a machine
which many farmers claim plows, harrows
or drills as much ground in the same time
as four, six or even eight horses. And more
-a machine that takes care of every power
