Motor Tractor Big Factor Greater Production Effort Agriculture Simplified and Food Supply Increased by Labor-Saving Machinery. AUTOMOBILE POKER "FROM THE KIN3." There are four of a kind for the dealer to show you when you call. Some hold sevens. Some fours. And Eome threes. But every car is an eight. Draw any one of them and you will never discard it. A car that you will not pass by. One that doesn't cost a pot of money. Fit for any queen to ride in. You don't have to jack it up for repairs. It is not a joker and there is no gamble when you chip is and buy. A pack of em sold. During the coming season motor machinery will be a srawing factor toward enabling the f.inner to maintain production of foodstuffs at usual standards. With eomt>e>:s: farm hands gone, in fact with �*;� of any kind we'd nigh unobtainable, the farmer who has just come through a season fraught with labor problems more perplexing than ever before realizes that next season promises to be still more serious. The farmers arc planning to do the work almost wholly by their own labor, assisted by modern machinery. Milking machir.es. power pumps, hay tools, trucks and tractors will replace hired men. In this emergency the tractor" assumes a new value. Heretofore the question was whether the tractor wonid pay-that is. would it be advisable 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 that the tractor can do good work on their farms, and they simply want to I get information about the adaptability ! of the various types to their special ! conditions. [ While many a Canadian farmer is : thinking that a tractor is a good buy , today, yet the caution with which he ' goes at the tractor proposition shows , that he intends to act only after con-; sideration. lie probably has seen the example of a tractor bought by a neighbor without consideration of how the � tool would replace man or horse power to save expense, operated by inexperi-'� encod help, improperly cared for, and . finally given up in disgust. Such un-> fortunate examples have done a good ! deal in the past to discourage the wi-1 der use of improved labor saving ina-; chiuery. After a careful study of the failures i 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*is not ! necessary to keep the tractor running, j But rather, seat on the tractor a man  with fair mechanical ingenuity and the i ability to sense that something is j wrong with the machine before the I costly breakdown occur3. A slight adjustment of a carburetor or a little oil -on the bearing before it rnns dry or a loose nut tightened in time will keep the machine working where the "let-her-go-for-a-while" attitude will cause an expensive delay. Second, when one secures the services of a tractor to help with the farm wark. 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 put-chaser is shown how to set it up and run it, how to lubricate it, how to make adjustments, and so on. Furthermore, it is highly desirable that repair parts be carried in stock at 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 come to the farm promptly and asslsttin.iaafcing repairs. It is regrettable that some otherwise good machines have in' the past been The Henderson garage one think* of it ami then of the Hudson Supor-Six. The Henderson lineage agency has been handling the Hudson since the ftriu was founiii.'d. The Sit|i�i--Six is the king of the Hud-^ons, a high priced cur but satisfactory to n de groo. It is the car the man buys who wants something different. To meet the wishes of the automobile buyer who wants something a little less expensive, something in the middle price ranKO. ||u, Heinler sou (larage has secured the agency for the Paige, controlliiig distribution through the province. Across the line the Vaigo has come to be among the most popular of cars, and that Southern Alberta is thinking the same way appears evident from the fact that though the agency was secured l,y Mr. J. Kane, manager of the Henderson Garage, late hist full and only twelve cars could be sccurefl every one was snapped up within a few weeks. Mr. Kane predicts a big year for the Paige in IBIS, One of the features of the new model is a mechanism for self grinding the valves. The seven passenger model is called the "Kssex" and the five passenger the "Llnwood." "To complete me range 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 the Henderson Garage conducts an up-to-date repair department which includes one of the best equipped vulcanizing plants Jn the province. The battery department is also complete and batteries are repaired, charged or built to order. Large storage spage is also provided, and altogether the Henderson Carage is one of the best automobile depots in the whol.t of Southern Alberta. STICKING BUSHINGS. Binding of the bushings that surround the push rods, frequently causes trouble. This may be caused by the oil becoming gummy or by valve grinding grit that has gotten down into the interior. If the aperture.is closed with a cloth before the valves are ground this latter trouble will be obviated. sold without adequate provision for giving good service to the buyer. However, tractor companies are now recognizing that good service to their patrons will increase the value of their machines, and some manufacturers are preparing to give effective help in this direction to the farmers of western Canada.
