Plowing with a steam or gasoline
tractor Is not nn unalloyed picnic,
particularly If those In chnrge of the
work do not understand the business
thoroughly nnd do not have things
properly ndjusted. One farmer we

with three men nnd a boy getting ono
of these plowing outfits equipped and
after making four rounds gave It up
as a bad Job and finished the field In
tho old fashioned way four horses

There are thousands of farms the

think they can nfford a manure spread
er where more than tho cost of a good

$2.25 lu crop production, but loses 50
per cent of this value if allowed to

how quickly tho value of a spreader
