Arrangements for the National
Swine Exposition Rapidly
Being Perfected; Many rA
New Features.
Chicago Exemption Board
Figures Show Good Progress
Chicago, Aug. fS. Reports of forty-seven
' of the eighty-six draft ex
emption boards in Chicago showed
that 8,994 registrants had been ex
amined up to today, of whom 6,558
were regarded as physically fit. In
the forty-seven districts 4,507 regis
trants nave1 made exemption claims.
Arrangements for the second an
nual -Vational Swine show; to he
held in the new horse and mule ban?!
at the stock yards, are rapidly being
perfected. The premium list offering
over $15,000 in cash and trophies is
going to the printer, and over 10.000
of the lists will be mailed to inter
ested hog raisers throughout the
United States.
Exceptional interest is being mani
fested by a great number of thor
oughbred hog raisers who have de
cidedly good herds, but who did -.not
exhibit at the National Swine, show
last year. Early reports indicate the
second show will far surpass last
year's show in both numbers shown
and in quality. ' v
It was a distinctive feature of the
1916 show that never before was so
great an amount of hog value ever
gotten together under one roof, and
from present prospect, the 1917 Na
tional Swine show bids, fair to dis
tance the former show in this respect.
Breeders Are Enthusiastic.
Additional interest in the show is
being shown by hog raisers through
out the country, due to their. desire
to produce the greatest amount of
pork per animal possible to meet the
greatly increased demand, account of
war conditions.'- Farmers, who
through experience having learned
that the quality blood in hogs lias
the tendency toward producing a
larger marketable animaf in less time
than the ordinary every day stock,
will be in attendance at the swiue
show in increased numbers, to secure
quauiy nog, as wen as aaoing new
stock to their established herds.
A new feature will be added to the
1917 show in the way of a hog judg
ing contest between various state
agricultural college student teams in
the corn 'e't. Already six "colleges
have signified their intention of en
tering the contest. Cash prizes will
i be offered. The prize fund is being
, subscribed by the various breed and
i agricultural papers throughout the
i country.
In order to accommodate the peo
ple, of Omaha who are unable to at
tend the show during the day. a num-
, ber of evening shows will be held, for
j which some added attractions are be-
ing arranged.

With this tractor you can go anywhere and do anything 'ou can with horses. 51 It is as easily driven as a
team, goes ahead, backs or turns at the touch of the hand. There is no foot work to do, no clutch to throw in
or out, no gears to shift, no bother at all. Two lever conveniently located, one for each hand, control the
machine and perform every operation desired. It has fewer working parts than any other tractor.
Steers by Its Own Power. ;
Turns in Its Own Length
With the Square Turn Tractor you can plow as close to the
fence corners as you can with a team, and you can clean up .at
the finish just as well. The plows are lifted by power to turn
corners and to back instantly to clear out trash. The plows
and other tools are in plain view of the operator. It is easier
to run both Square Turn Tractor and plows than it is to drive
an ordinary gang plow with team. It will Work in any kind
of soil and in wet place3 and on side hills too steep for a binder
without danger of tipping over.
Burns Kerosene or Gasoline
The Square Turn Tractor has a two-fuel burning carburetor
for using either kerosene or gasoline, and carries two 15-gallon
fuel tanlts. It is the only tractor that is permitted to use th
patented Giant Grip Drive the greatest improvement made in
the tractor industry.
We guarantee the Square Turn Tractor to operate success
fully on your farm or there is no sale. Write for free catalog if you
can'tWme to the Fremont show.
