While it is ' true that a gasoline tractor works cheaper than horses, this International 8-16 does its work at less than half the fuel cost of a gasoline tractor. The saving in fuel alone is enough to pay for the tractor during its lifetime. The International 8-16 has a four-cylinder, vertical, water cooled, valve-in-hcad engine with all working parts completely enclosed, yet easy to get at for adjustment It has a throttle Governor that regulates the amount of fuel used exactly in proportion to the load, doing away with all fuel waste. This tractor costs less to buy and less to run than anytrao tor of equal quality and capacity that we know of. You ought to come in and see it soon. ELGIN CONDON SMYRNA, MICH. ALLOWANCE TO CHILD is road to Econoay Home Economics -Expert Says Way Is to Teacji Youth Early Proper Apportioning of an Income. ASHLEY Mr. and Mrs. Finn Tuthill, who moved near Saranac last week Wed nesday were given a farewell visit by their friends ami neighbors last Mon day evening.

Snyder is to move to Alton The best and most natural way of Crawford's farm this spring. beginning true national economy, wise spending and wise saving," Fays Ruth Wardell, head of the home eco nomics department of the University of Iowa, and who last summer started a home economics department In a Cleveland (Ohio) bank, "Is by 'giving the children an allowance. The lesson of properly apportioning an Income thus Is early learned." Miss Wardell favors the allowance arrangement at a very early age, say at six or seven. It may then be very small, and out of It' the budding cltl len may be expected to provide only school pencils, tablets, etc. The pur chase of school books provides a log ical next step ; a little later some per sonal .belongings, such as shoes, may be added. "I fay shoes,"! explains. Miss War dell, "because children seem to take more Interest In shoes than In most articles of wearing apparel, and be- Fixing the Allowance. cause shoes represent a highly Impor tant Item to which children frequently pay little heed." The allowance should provide a little margin to encourage careful buy ing and saving possibilities. It should not necessitate so much care or thought as to hurtle the growing youngster. It should never, under nor mal circumstances, be "helped out" by Irregular gifts or expected to cover other than the recognized Items. The allowance, with Its purchasing respon sibilities, should be Increased gradu ally, steadily. By the time high school Is reached the boy or girl should be buying praetlcajly all his or her own clothes. Miss Wardell tells an Interesting story of a boy who called upon her In Cleveland, telling her of his man ner of apportioning the rather gener ous allowance made by his father, lie knew to a penny what every article he wore had cost him; he was Intelli gent regarding relative textile and wearing values; he saved steadily, sys tematically, with Joy. A Chicago mother started her little daughter out, similarly, at eight years old and at sixteen the girl was a bet ter buyer than she wasT These chll- Buying His Own Goods dren were well started on the road to fine and self-respecting and independ ent citizenship. Both will enter col lege with a i. Ice little financial nest egg to await the bt-glnning of their business or professional life. The child's allowance. It may be added, should be for neeeslties mainly, with but a fair and modest margin for personal luxuries and pleasures. It should always be recognized as allow ing for a regular proportion of sav ings, preferably Invested In govern mental securities. It should be care fully adjusted, rigidly adhered to on both sides of the bargain. Such re spect and observance not only will teach the child good economic habits, but will abolish many too frequent an noyances for the financial head of the family. Each child given an allowance will understand that this sum, with his support and other parental provisions, represents his fair share of the fam ily Income, and that, as a decent, citi zen, he must not ask nor expect to ex ceed It. An adequate allowance sys tem, moreover, will obviate the evil habit of crying or pleading for special Indulgences and more funds.

The hard times so cial will be held soma time next month so watch for place and date.
