There are many reasons
for the ease of steering

THE new Ford is exception
ally easy to steer because of
the well - proportioned
weight of the car, the eteel
epoke wheels, the co-ordinated
design of springs and
shock absorbers, the size

wheel, and the simple me

On Cleaning Harnett .
A thorough overhauling, clean
ing:, and oiling: the harness once
or twice a year will prolong its
life. Take the harness apart bo
that all pari: can le overhauled, and
: oak it for a quarter of an hour in
lukewarm, water in which some mild
soap has been devolved. Scrub and
rinse it well. When nearly dry,
rub blacking on the leather
where needed, clean the metal parts
and make nece sary fepairs. Oil
ing the leather should be done
while damp, using neat's-foot oil.
castor oil, or a prepared harne s
oil. The U. S. Department of Agri
culture says that a very good mix
ture for heavy harness is neat's
foot and mixed with tallow to make
a pa te of about the consistency of
slightly warmed butter. Rub the
oil well into the leather and let it
dry slowly away from fire or son.
When the oil has dried, rub the
straps with a lather of white Cas
tile coap or a good harness soap, to
remove any surplus grease.
Here are tome pertinent points
for permanent-pasture mixtures.
First, choose only grasses and le
gumes adapted to the ,oil and Cli
mate. Some of the grasses should
be long-lived perennials,, so that
the pasture will not deteriorate too
fast after the first year. Some turf
forming grasses are desirable; they
keep out weeds and make a firm
footing for livestock. Grasses with
a large number of basal leaves are
preferable; leaves are more nutrlti-
uog and palatable than stems. When
possible, include some grasses that
will germinate quickly and make a
heavy growth tin? fir-t yeat Always
include legumes, they furnish pro
tein and minerals and preserve the
nitrogen in the soil. Plan the pas
ture mixture so as to , make the
grazing ceason as. long as possible
Finally, a varied mixture will pro
vide variety in the ration,
