In other papers, devotee more largely to the mechanics of, the Is the all-important subject, and from the.two types of treatment of the subject the new arrival Jn the t is somewhat ut a loss as to just t amount of importance should really.be attached to traction faming, It is safe to state that very few farmers in the older settled districts oE the East have any conception of the part that the tractor engine IB taking hi the development of Western ada. This is not to be wondered at, for the development of the gas engine has been so rapid that the many old set- tled sections of the country are only just beginning to appreciate the Rgri- culturaltroBsibilitleB of the small sta- tionary engine. It has been 20 yttrs since .tho stationary gas engine.was considered of much use commercially. Ten years ago gas traction plowing was scarcely thought'of. It esti- mated that in 1908 not more than 400 gas-iractors we're in the field. there are about in the Canadian about tractors. .-Last year something "like gas tractors were brought J jn, and this" year will see lagfyear'a rec ord ;far surpassed.- three years practically all of the old line steam traction firms operating In the Northwest have put a gasoHne'or.Uero- proflt from crop, and in seasons whore ,Uio margin 'of profit la small will btrcrowded pretty hard, and the result will be a consolidation situation and are able to cope with it, tractor will be set aside ao far: as its for plowing, hauling, seeding, reaping etc., ,Is concerned, and will be used chiefly- on "the farm 'for threshing If, on the other hand, the farm work can-be done cheaper with mechanical power than horse, counting re- pairs, upkeep, shelter, depreciation, etc., the horeo is doomed to be gradu- ally superseded- by, tho tractor on all farms siiftlcientiy large to use the en- gine economically.

Some action builders, arc now operating arms of their own. This Is a long .ep ra the right direction Accurate.Information .Needed There'ia a great demand for Hcciir- e Information ulong traction farming nes, :The 'engine builders and agri- ultural .papers are doing eet this demand, but they cannot do all. They dear more with'the suc- cesses than the failures. People. do not often care to tell the public of their mistakes. It'is the big .things which they do that are most apt to get into print. The farmer receives assistance in the form of bulletins covering almost every, phase of farin life but this one. Why should he not be ad- vised along this line, especially at.thte time when the need ia so great? Tlie motor contests give us about the only authoritlve figures as to what the trac- tor can do, and these, valuable as they are, cover but two phases of the farm tractor, one of which is under conditions that cannot long ob- tain! in the west.

In order that, he may modify he tractor to overcome the difficulties as Ihey .come "up and are recognized. There IB a great need for experimental arms to help out these problems. to let the farmer ;o into a. movement of this.klnd with- >ut the best of assistance, for his mis nkcH affect more than himself.
