Heretofore the . question was whether the tractor i would pay-that is, would it be ad-[ visable with a choice between horse  power, man power, and tractor power ' to abandon some of the former for the uncertainties* of the latter. Farmers in Canada, as a whole, had, up to a short time ago, felt that it would be wise to let the other fellow try out the tractor and demonstrate its value. Today many farmers are -assuming Ja.�k4� �p for repairs. It is not a joker,____,___.. ________ _. _ _________, and" there is no gamble when you chip that the tractor can do good work ori Is anlCbuy. A pack cf 'em sold. their farms, and they simply want to fortunate examples have done a good deal in the past to discourage the. wider use of improved labor saving machinery. After a careful study of the failures as well as the successes- with tractors, an expert suggests. two" things" to the prospective tractor owner: First, a tractor is too good a-machine to put in the hands of a poor operator. However, an expert mechanician^ not necessary to keep the tractor running. But rather, seat on the trdctdr'a'man with fair, mechanical ingenuity and the ability to sense that sdnJethfhg is wrong with the machine before the costly breakdown occurs. A slight _�_1__ adjustment of a carburetor or u- Utile oil -on the bearing before it rnns dry or a loose nut tightened in time will keep the machine working where tho "let-her-go-for-n-while" attitude will cause an expensive delay. Second, when one secures the services of a tractor to help with tho farm warfc, plan the work so as to take the best'advantage of what the machine will do. And what will a tractor do? If one were to believe all that is printed about tractors one would think that it could assist in almost any farm operation. The facts are as follows: Farmers who have found the tractor a profitable investment have used their machines chiefly to plow, fit land, and deliver belt power. ..Cultivating, long road hauling, pulling heavy machinery, etc., will undoubtedly soon be developed as practical tractor possibilities, but in the present stage of mechanical development of the machine such lines of work are distinctly in the experimental stage for the all-round farm tractor. A third suggestion might be added for those who are choosing a tractor, and that Is the necessity of ascertaining the quality .of service given by the various companies. Efficient service means that the seller of the machine must make provision that the purchaser is shown how to set it up and run it, how to lubricate It; how to mttke adjustments, and so on. (furthermore, it is highly desirable that repair parts be carried in ' stock a't some central point reasonably near, the farm, and that they be sold at a, fair price, and that in case of .extreme'emergency . a competent man can pome to the farm promptly, and assisttip^mirldng repairs. It is regrettable that some otherwise good machines have in1 the past been PAIGE ADDED BY Now Handle Three Lines, Hudson, t'uigc and Saxon-Garage Work Also Tho Henderson garage-one think* of It and than of tho Hudson Super-Six. Tho Henderson Gnrngo agency 1ms been handling the Hudson since tho firm was founded. The Super-Six is the king of the Hudsons, a high priced oar but satlsfn.clory to a degree. It is tho car tho man buys who wants something different. To meet tho wishes of tho automobile buyer who wants something a little less expensive, something in tho middle price range, the (lender-son Garage has secured tho agency for tho I'aige. controlling distribution through the province. Across the lino the Vnigo has come to he among tho most popular of cars, and that Southern Alberta is thinking tho same way appears ovidont from the fact that though the agency was secured by Mr. J. Kane, manager of the Henderson Garage, late last fall and only twelve cars could be seeurefl every one was snapped up within a fovr weeks. Mr. Kane predicts a big yoar for the Paige in 191S, One of the features of the new model is a mechanism for self grinding the valves. Tho seven pnft-songer model is called tho "Essex" and the fivo passenger the "Llnwooil." To comploto the rango of cars handled ,the Henderson Garage has the Saxon, a lower priced car which has characteristics all Its own and many buyers are being found for it. In addition to its sales agencies tho Henderson Garage conducts an up:to-date repair department which Includes one -of the best equipped vulcanizing plants in the province. The battery department' is also complete and batteries are repaired, charged or built to order.
