Let us take the last convention as an example. The writer has a high regard for �be members of the different Board of directors with which he has been as-alpeiated in the V. F. A., but of all Utoaa board* the Board for 1917 stands VM bifhest In his estimation. During Jhe past years the writer has sat with associations of farmers, of lawyers, of teachers, of church folk and of palitic-'lans, but for ability and devotion to jtheir ideabv patriotism, loyalty to their rgaritatlcsn and their officials, the |�rritar bao never had the privilege of ,llttm*T In council with a finer class of �*m and women than the Board for 191X. We have pictures of all the .ftoaxea, and submissive to the opinion of the majority. It is not necessary for rne to . mention the two excellent ladies. Mrs. Spencer and Mrs. Barrett, as we could not do them justice. Of all the Boards of the pa^t this board accomplished the most good and made the fewest mistakes. Let's see w-hat happened to them. Of the executive. Weir and the writer v.-ere traded for Leedy and Shepherd. So tar so good, at least so far as the- writer is concerned the exchange is obyidusly right artd we are well satisfied. We like liberty and we possibly can do as much good in the ranks as on the Board and can do it with less sacrifice ; to ourselres. You will'pardon us for ! quoting from the report-of one of the '� delegates -what he salt* to his local' about ourself. "when the convention pulled the harnesa off of Dunham and . turned him loose, as he started toward hot the board of 1917 hangs jthe herd you could hoar him nicker a 'aboT* the writer's desk.

A Ford Car Takes the Place of all These Things WHEN you own a Ford you can do away with many articles that are a source of continuous expense to the man who still drives a horse. For instance, not only your driving-horse �nd buggy, but the single harness,"blankets, *vhips,. currycombs, brushes, horse-shoes, pitch-forks, feed-bins, etc. In their place you have a sprpcly, dependable, dignified, roomy Ford Car-complete in itsejf. j c is vastly superior to the narrow, cramped buggy that travels eo slowly. And when a Ford is standing idle it does not eat three meals a day, and it requires no "looking after." A Ford will save you time, trouble, and money. It is the utility . car for the busy farmer and his family. ^- Moline Universal Tractor n IS ALL TRACTOR .
