Dallas To Vote On V
Sewer Bonds Tuesday
Dallas, Ore., Sept .fi. A special elec
tion will be held in this city Tuesday
of next week for the purpose of vot
ingon bonds for the construction of a
storm sewer system. The improvement
is one that is badly needed in this city
as the present : sewer system is too
small to carry off the surplus water
during the winrar months nnrl hflsc-
been visiting her parents the past weck',,,,.,, fill a reslt. Last winter
Mr.-and Mrs. iwurt and aaugnrer ,durins the honvv-Miina the sewers mW-
flowed with greatly endangered the
lives of inhabitants in many parts of
the city. The 'estimated cost of the
sewer is $,H9.00 and while its- bei'gn
ning will be in the. southwestern part
of the cilry wharrf-it will drain a great
amount of surface water it will direct
ly benefit the entire community as it
will release the other sewer system
from carrying off this great volume ef
The proposed sower will start at the
south end of Levens street and run
north to Washington street, east on
Washington street to Jefferson street
and north on Jefferson street to the
Kickreall river, thus taking care of the
water from the hard surfaoe streets.
There is reported to be sonic oppo

City Council believe, the bonds will

OFF FOB THE ENCAMPMENT
WITH ITS ADVANTAGES FOR
THE PRACTICAL FARMER
IT DOES THINGS
It does far MORE than merely plow.
That is only the BEGINNING of its useful
ness. It goes right through with the EN
TIRE preparation of the seed bedfrom
plowing to seeding. And in addition it reaps,
binds, threshes, hauls, cuts ensilage,- ; fills
silos, saws wood, digs potatoes and , "does
many of the numerous other chores always
necessary about the farm. ' .'
ITS CONSTRUCTION AN ADVANTAGE
The Cletrac stands on two long "feet"
each 50 inches long by 6 inches wide. And
because of this immense "foot" surface it
is kept on top of the soil by the same prin
siple that enables a man to walk on snow
shoes. This distinctive construction enables
the Cletrac to work Efficiently on wet or
sandy soil. It permits it to go over the seed
bed without sinking in and without leav
ing two tracks of packed soil behind it: The
same principle that made the "tanks", so
successful in the mud of Flanders gives the
Cletrac the ability to work practically any
where. ' .'
ITS POSSIBILITIES OWING TO SIZE
ITS SMAL SIZE IS AN ADVANTAGE
The Cletrac is only 96 inches long, 52
inches high and 50 inches wide enabling
it to work up close to trees and fences and
making it ideal for orchard iise.
