In order to obtain a clearer idea of
the advantage of electricity over any
other agent and to show that electric
ity Is the beet medium for the farmer,
the following facts sre cited by Frank
Koester lu Ills book, "Electricity For
the Farm and Home." There are thou
sands of steam and internal combus
tion engines in use on our fprms to
day, principally for replacing draft
aulmala. and of course a proportion
ate number of farm handa, and they
are used with machinery, such as
plows and thraaheni and especially
pumps. For »iterating small machinery
such as la required In dalriea, as
cow milkers, cream separators, butter
kneaders, etc., an Internal combustion
engine could not be as advantageously i
used as an electric motor, however, for
the reason that the smallest commer |
cial Internal combuetlou engine la
about two lioraepower. while the elec
trie motor may be chosen In capacities
of one tenth of a horsepower and up
ward to suit the machine to be oper
ated. Further, no fuel is necessary, the
only requirement being to turn on a
switch to start the motor.
Ig fact, practice has proved that
farm machinery t-tiu advantageously be
iqieratcd by electric motors. The ma-
chines usually -q-erated on the farm
are plows, rollers, reapers, thrashers,
corn grinders, corn »hellers, corn shred
