Canadian Farm Implements 

January, 1922 



A new buying season for Plows, Harrows, Cultivators, Seeders, etc. is opening with materially 
reduced prices. Farmers in every locality are in need of new equipment. Get your share of this 
profitable business by aggressively pushing the Cockshutt line. 

Farmers this year, perhaps more than ever before, realize 
that efficient machines and methods are essential to success in 
their business. They are planning to replace old and worn out 
equipment with new and better machines. The Cockshutt Line 
will pay you well for the time and work you put on it. 

Cockshutt Implements are giving satisfaction because they're 
built especially for Western Canada conditions. There are sizes 
and styles of each line to meet the demands of every customer 
in your territory. It pays best to sell a full line, backed by one 
responsible organization. 

Talk it over with our traveller or write for full particulars and agency proposition.

RiPTioN PE.rK IN Canada 

A New Year's Message from Leaders in the Industry 

. .A Message of Confidence for 

By Harold F. McCormick, President 
International Harvester Company. 

The year 1921 will long be re- 
membered for its hardships by 
the farmers of Canada, the farm 
implement dealers and the imple- 
ment manufacturers. Deflation 
is never a pleasant process and 
so far the worst of its pains and 
penalties have been borne by ag- 
riculture. Inevitably the whole 
farm implement industry sufifered 
almost as severely, because its 
prosperity is directly and abso- 
lutely dependent on the prosper- 
ity of the farmer. 

But we can all of us — farmer, 
implement dealer and implement 
manufacturers — look forward into 
1928 with sturdy confidence, if 
not with glowing hope and enthu- 
siasm. The world has settled 
down to the conviction that the 
only way to repair the damage 
of the war is to work, produce and 
save. Slowly, but with encour- 
aging definiteness, international 
trade and finance are moving back 
toward the balance that is essen- 
tial to international and national 
prosperity. Slowly, but definite- 
ly, the index line of industry zig- 
zags back toward some reason- 
able kind of parity with the index 
line of prices for farm products 
— another prime requisite to nat- 
ional well-being. 

Western Canada's crops suf- 
fered considerably from weather 
conditions and all of Canada's 
farmers have had to bear heavy 
losses due to depreciation in the 
prices of everything they pro- 
duce. But even so, the Dominion 
farmers are in a much better sit- 
uation than those of the older 
and more thickly settled farming 
areas in the United States, such 
as Iowa, for example. For one 
thing, less than 12 per cent of the 
land in Canada is now occupied, 
in spite of an increase of popu- 
lation of 305 per cent in fifteen 
years ; and for another, the lower 
prices of land in Western Can- 

ada means smaller investments 
and quicker recuperation from the 
recent losses. 

Factors in Future Success 

But the most hopeful element 
in Canada's agricultural situation 
is the pioneer spirit that still rules 
throughout the farmlands of 
Western Canada. The farmers 
of Western Canada have met a 
distressing situation with their 
accustomed courage ; they have 
worked harder, have practiced 
closer economy, and, in spite of 
their losses, have continued clear- 
ing away their obligations. 

Our Company has done and is 
doing everything in its power 
to assist in the rehabilitation of 
agriculture. There is encourage- 
ment for the dealers as well as 
ourselves in the reception that has 
been accorded our reduced prices. 

Another factor that will make 
for prosperity among our dealers 
in 1922 is found in the figures 
which show that for the last five 
years the farmers have not been 
buying new equipment up to the 
normal ratio. The efficiency of 
farm equipment is now low and 
it is axiomatic that whenever any 
farmer really needs new equip- 
ment, he begins paying for it 
that moment, whether he buys 
it or not. It is reasonable to ex- 
pect that the farmers of Canada 
will be in the market for new 
equipment as rapidly and strong- 
ly as their resources permit. 

Canada's farmers are to be con- 
gratulated, and her implement 
dealers may well be glad, because 
the Dominion has given such en- 
ergy and achieved such success 
already in the live stock depart- 
ment of agriculture, for without 
livestock agriculture cannot reach 
its highest and most dependable 

To the implement dealers of 
Canada, and to the farmers who 
are their and our customers, the 
Harvester Company sends its 
good wishes and expresses its 
hope and belief that we are ad- 
vancing into a busy and prosper- 
ing New Year.— Harold F. Mc- 
Cormick, President. 

Factors that Affect the Price of 

By William Butterworth, President, 
Deere and Company 

At the commencement of an- 
other year I appreciate the oppor- 
tunity of addressing the Imple- 
ment Dealers of Western Canada 
through the pages of "Canadian 
Farm Implements." 

There never was a time within 
my memory when it was so nec- 
essary for the farmer, implement 
dealer and the implement manu- 
facturer to study, learn and 
understand each other's problems. 

We all know the effect which 
the rapid decline of farm products 
had upon the buying power of the 
farmer and indirectly upon the 
dealer, but I do not believe that 
we realize the tremendous effect 
on the buying power of the 
farmer, which the high rates of 
freight have. After a great deal 
of investigation and study the 
story of the effect of these freight 
rates, is being developed and pub- 
lished and I have no doubt but 
that most dealers have seen these 

The Effect of Freight Rates 

The success of the farmer, the 
the dealer and the implement 
manufacturer is so influenced by 
this factor that everything is be- 
ing done that can be done to indi- 
cate to the railroads the great 
need of reduced rates. The rail- 
roads on their part, will recog- 
nize and realize the necessity of 
lower rates, not only for the good 
of the farmer but to increase their 
own business ; but there are cer- 
tain things in the way of reduced 
rates. Those things are elements 
in the cost of transportation such 
as wages which are 60 per cent of 
the total revenues of the roads ; 
the very high cost of materials 
which the railroads are obliged to 
buy. such as locomotives, cars, 
rails, ties, etc. : the high cost of 
of coal and very greatly in- 
creased taxes. 

We hope by showing the 
absolute necessity for the reduced 
cost of operation in order to re- 

duce rates and, therefore, stimu- 
late business, that the railroads 
will be able to get their labor cost 
down and that those who sell the 
railroads the things they need will 
realize the need of reducing their 
prices, including the price of coal. 

I understand that Canadian 
rates are not quite so high as they 
are in this country and my state- 
ment has reference to the situ- 
ation in the United States. 

I am not inclined to be pessi- 
mistic and feel that the farmer 
and the dealer will begin to buy 
for this next spring's trade, al- 
though perhaps in a modest way. 

No one is suffering more from 
the situation than the implement 
manufacurer, himself. 75 per 
cent of the cost of the product 
of the implement manufacturer is 
material and the average cost of 
the materials which he has to buy 
is 70 per cent above pre-war 
prices. The implement manu- 
facturers have taken a very heavy 
loss in their inventories, in order 
to try and get somewhere near the 
figure which the farmer and the 
dealer can pay. In our manu- 
facturing we are stopped at a cost 
level, by the replacement cost of 
the materials we buy. In other 
words we cannot sell goods on a 
basis of 1.65 for steel, if we have 
to pay more for that steel when 
we go into the market to buy. 
All manufacturers are doing 
everything they can to get their 
costs down in order to start bus- 
iness going. 

I cannot help but feel that this 
reduction in cost must start with 
the natural products, the same as 
it did with the farm products. 
In other words, with wood and 
wood products and iron and iron 
products ; also with coal. I am 
hopeful that these natural pro- 
ducts will come down in their 
cost so that they may be sold on 
a basis which will enable the 
dealer and the farmer to buy. 

The situation is a very difficult 
one, involving the adjustment of 
wages, which again involves the 
cost of living, but I think we have 
turned the corner and while the

improvement will be slow an^ 
gradual it will come. I have 
heard it stated that it will take 
another farm crop and possibly 
two before we will be back to a 
normal basis. I- am very hope- 
ful that we will begin to move up 
this coming spring. I think that 
if the farmer and dealer realize 
that the implement manufacturers 
are not only not profiteering, but 
are making every sacrifice possi- 
ble in order to get somewhere 
near the dealer's buyijig level, 
that they will feel that it is right 
for them to buy such goods as 
, thev may need in their territory 
in order to keep the implement 
industry alive. — W. Butterworth,

Wirnipeg Wholesale Implement 
Association is Re-organized 

Representatives of the whole- 
sale implement trade in Winni- 
peg met in the St Charles Hotel 
on December 8, the following 
gert^emen being present from the 
firms named:- J. P. Minhinnick, 
Corkshutt Plow Co. ; D. Drehmer, 
John Deere Plow Co. ; C. H. 
Whitaker, Massey-Harris Co. ; J. 
A. Tanner, International Har- 
vester Co. : J. C. Brosnahan, Inter- 
national Harvester Co, Brandon ; 
A. C. Davis, Nichols & Shepard 
Co.; M. J. Carruthers, Advance- 
Rumely Thresher Co. ; F. X. 
Chauvin, Huber Mfg. Company, 
Brandon ; E. S. Strachan, Swedish 
Sepa'-ator Co. ; J. Robertson, Saw- 
yer-Massey Co. ; A'V. R. Cole, 
Robert Bell Engine & Thresher

Forbes, Canadian Fairbanks- 
Morse Co. ; A. Macfarlane, Ander- 
son-Roe Co. ; A. A. Thomson, 
Canadian Farm Implements and 
E. W. Hamilton. 

The association has not been ac- 
*tive for some time, and the meet- 
ing was called for the purpose 
of re-organizing the wholesale im- 
plerrient trade of the City with a 
view to promoting increased co- 
operation between the various 
wholsale houses in the business. 
This was considered very essen- 
tial in view of present conditions. 

Rf oresentatives of the larger 
implement houses suggested that 
they would gladly welcome all 
who'c^ale implement firms taking 
a li"e interest in the Association, 
as r*^ thf* present time matters had 
to be dealt with which are of 
vital importance to the entire 
wholesale trade. 

It was decided to elect a new 
board of officers, and the election 
resr'ted as follows :- 

President. J. P. Minhinnick, 
Manno-er, Cockshntt Plow Co.; 
Vice-President M, J. Car- 
ruthers. Manager, . Advance- 

, Rumely Thresher Co. ; Secretary- 
Treasurer, E. W. Hamilton. 

The following were elected to 
serve on the Executive Board of 
the Association :-K. N. Forbes, 
Canadian Fairbanks-Morse Co. ; 
D. Drehmer, John Deere Plow 
Co. ; J. Robertson, Sawyer-Mas- 
sey Co. ; A. A. Thomson, Can- 
adian Farm Implements ; W. R. 
Cole, Robert Bell Engine & 
Thresher Co ; J. A. Tanner, Inter- 
national Harvester Co. ; A. Mac- 
farlane, Anderson-Roe Co. ; and 
J. H. Redden, J. Ii Case Thresh- 
ing Machine Co. 

It was decided that the Associa- 
tion should hold regular monthly 
meetings, these to be held on the 
3rd Tuesday in each month. The 
trade will be advised of the date 
and place of meeting. The an- 
nual dues decided upon were $15.- 
00 per member per annum, and it 
was further decided that the Asso- 
-iation should embody all whole- 
sale imDlement firms in other cen- 
ters throughout the province, 
such as Portage la Prairie and 

A. A. Thomson, Editor of "Can- 
adian Farm Imolem-^nts," sug- 
gested the advisability of the 
association co-operating with the 
associations in Regina, Saskatoon 
and Calgary so that features of 
common interest to the trade in 
the three provinces might be 
dealt with. The president re- 
ferred to the old practice of the 
associations exchanging copies of 
minutes as a good one. Mr. Thom- 
son believed that a publicity cam- 
paign should be inaugurated by 
the associations, sending bulle- 
tins to the farm press so that .the 
farmers may be more fully ad- 
vised upon costs and factors in 
the implement trad6 which had a 
direct effect upon the price of the 

A meeting of the executives of 
the association took place in the 
offices of the Retail Merchants 
Association on December 20. to 
discuss a matter which had been 
taken tip with the Secretary of 
the R. M. A. by a retail imple- 
ment firm in the province. This 
firm suggested that a lien note 
form be embodied in the statu- 
tory order form for large and 
small implements. After con- 
discussion it was decided to in- 
vestigate further l^efore arriving 
at a decision. 

Pump Men Collect Data 

At their meeting in Chicago, 
Dec. 14, the U. S. Pump Depart- 
ment of the National Association 
of Farm Equipment Manufact- 
urers decided to accumulate

Death of the President of the 
Massey-Harris Organization 

Thomas Findley, president and 
general manager of the Massey- 
Harris Company, Toronto, Brant- 
ford and Batavia, N. Y. died at 
his home in Toronto on Decem- 
ber 19. Death followed a long 
fight against complications aris- 
ing from an ear complaint, from 
which Mr. Findley suffered for 
over five years. He leaves his 
wife, a daughter and two sons. 

Besides his connection with 
the Massey-Harris Company, Mr. 
Findley was a director of the 
Johnston Harvester Company, 
Batavia, N. Y., Vice-President of 
the Toronto Housing Company ; 
director. National Trust Co., Ltd. ; 
director Verity Plow Co., Ltd., 

The late Thomas Findley 

Brantford, and President, Bain 
Wagon Co., Ltd., Woodstock, 
Ont. He was also a member of 
the Canadian Manufacturers' 

The late gentlerrtan was born 
on a farm in York county in 1870. 
He left the farm at the age of 
sixteen and for four years worked 
at Sutton West as telegraph oper- 
ator and postal clerk in the gen- 
eral store. In 1890, at the age of 
20 he came to Toronto and en- 
tered the employment of the 
Massey-Harris Co. as a telegraph 

Working by day he studied 
steadily that he might better his 
position. In 1895 he was ap- 
pointed chief accountant, which 
post he held until 1902. In that 
vear he became assistant Presi- 
dent, and in 1907 was made assis- 
tant general manager. In 1909 
he was made a director of the 
company and its Vice-President 
in 1912, 

In 1917 after a life of strenuous 
effort he reached the summit in 
his chosen sphere when he was ap- 
pointed President and General 
Manager of the Massey-Harris 

It is indicative of .the qualities 
of the late Mr. Findley that he 
was one of the first men in Can- 
adian mdustry to visualize the 
importance of bettering condi- 
tions for industrial workers. He 
was responsible for the inaugur- 
ation of many plans devised by 
his company to promote unity and 
co-operation between employer 
and employee. To-day the Mas- 
sey-Harris Company is one of the 
leading concerns on the continent 
insofar as employees welfare ad- 
ministration is concerned. 

Hard work, self-improvement 
and devotion to duty brought 
their due reward, and from top 
to bottom of the vast organiza 
tion the late Mr. Findley was 
esteemed as the "Chief" to whom 
the welfare of every worker was 
an important matter. Quiet-spok- 
en, kindly and non-assertive he 
was not a rhan who sought the 
public eye. Rather has he left 
a rich heritage of friendship and 
esteem amongst those with whom 
he labored, and the kindly mem- 
ory of thousands of men who 
served the great institution with 
which his lifework had lain. 

Dairying in Saskatchewan 

Figures issued by the Dairy 
Branch of the Saskatchewan 
Dept. of Agriculture show official 
estimated dairy production for the 
past year of $23,455,774. This is 
an increase of $412,725 over the 
previous year. 

The ouput of creamery butter 
shows an increase of over 16,000 
pounds, and there were '10,000 
more gallons of ice cream manu- 
factured than in the previous 
year. The total value of dairy 
cattle in the province as compiled 
by the Statistics Branch of the 
Department of Agriculture is 
estimated at over $40,000,000. 

In the 48 creamery plants in 
operation in the province the aver- 
age make of butter per plant was 
141,253 lbs., and the average sell- 
ing price at the creamery 56.13 
cents per pound. The creamery 
operators paid approximately $2,- 
766 000 for the butter fat supplied. 

The Straw Spreader 

Implement dealers can make 
many sales of straw spreaders to 
the farmers if they will only 
emphasize the benefits obtained 
from straw spreading. The great- 
est agricultural experts in the 
country advise straw spreading. 
We cannot doubt the word of 
these men who have made a life 
study of agriculture and who 
know from actual experiments 
conducted that straw spreading is

—and Reasonable 

On Sell ing the Only Tractor that 
Combines All Four Elements 
Necessary to Cheap Farm Power 

You know why some farmers have not bought tractors. Some have 
thought the fuel cost too high. Others have questioned the "upkeep" 
or repair expense. Others have thought that the cost per year for 
depreciation was quite high. 

Thousands of these farmers will buy tractors when they are satisfied 
on these points. And they will be fully satisfied when they are given 
the facts about the 


**The Cheapest Farm Power** 

The Four Factors absolutely essential to 
long, dependable, cheapest power service 
are: (1) Lowest Fuel Cost; (2) Lowest 
able First Cost. The OilPull combines all 
four for the first time in any tractor. 

Look at the OilPull records: 

il) Lowest Fuel Cost. For ten years an 
OilPull has won the highest official honors 
for low fuel consumption in national 
tests. (2) Lowest Upkeep Expense. 
Investigations made of many typical 

OilPulls.of all ages, show upkeep expense 
averaging, per year, 50% less than the 
national average given by the govern- 
ment. (3) Longest Life (10 years and 
more). Thousands of OilPulls have given 
over 10 years of service. "Old Number 
One" is still serviceable after 12 years of 
use. (4) Advance- Rumely Prices are 
always fairly gauged. Considering the 
fine grade of materials and workmanship 
employed and the low upkeep and long 
life, the present prices are low.

The Chief Reason 

OilPull success is due to two 
things: (1) The high quality 
of OilPull design and con- 
struction. (2) Triple Heat 
Control, used on all OilPull 
tractors. Triple Heat 
Control is a scientific Oil- 
Burning system which fi-

out of kerosene. Positively con-

The Power Driven Cream Separator 

In order 'to get most satisfac- 
tory results the cream separator 
should be driven by a gas engine 
or some other equally smooth- 
running motor. That is to say, 
we want to get all the butterfat 
possible from the milk and not 
get too much milk wi'th the 

Hand operation of cream sep- 
arators can not be relied upon to 
give the right speed and conse- 
quently the closest separation, no 
matter how careful the individual 
is in turning the machine. The 
farmer who owns a cream sep- 
arator, should also own a gas 
engine. If several cows are 
milked the engine will pay for 
itself in a comparatively short 
time by the cream that will be 
saved. If he has an engine and 
the other necessary equipment the 
farmer can then be sure that the 
separator will be driven at a uni- 
form speed throughout the skim- 
ming operation. 

Another important advantage 
in having an engine to drive the 
separator is in the time saved.

keeps a fairly large number of 
cows, the engine can be started 
each time as soon as the milking 
is begun. Then as fast as it is 
milked, the milk can be emptied 
mto the separator and both jobs 
will be finished together. 

Important as it is to have the 
separator driven by engine power, 
it is equally as important to have 
it properly belted to the engine. 
To drive a cream separator with 
an engine requires a great deal 
more care than almost any other 
use to which this power is ap- 
plied. It is absolutely necessary 
that the speed of the separator 
be uniform and regular, in order 
that the separation of the milk 
and cream may be complete, the 
cream of even thickness, and the 
working parts of the machine not 
subjected to needless wear and 

The engine should never be 
belted direct to the separator 
pulley, for the speed of the aver- 
age engine is not sufficiently uni- 
form. This, plus the shocks due 
to the impulses of the engine and 
the usual vibration are damaging 
to the separator. A jerky motion 
of the bowl results in poor skim- 

One of the worst things that 
a farmer can do is to mount the 
separator and engine on a single 
base or in a single frame. The 
jar and vibration resulting from 
the engine impluses is trans- 
mitted direct to 'the separator 
causing the trouble just men- 

One method of driving the 
separator by a gas engine is by 
means of the power driving de- 
vice. The belt from the engine 
is connected to a tight-and-loose 
pulley, which is provided with a 
belt shaft. The power is trans- 
mitted from this shaft by means 
of an endless belt to the worm 
wheel shaft of the separator.

The Twin City Separator 

Corapany, Ltd. Winnipeg, man. 

The important feature of this 
device is a coil-spring belt tight- 
ener over which this endless belt 
runs and which automatically 
absorbs all shocks resulting from 
engine impulses and the irregu- 
larities of speed which occur from 
one cause and another. This 
friction-clutch pulley, as it is 
called, allows the separator to be 
started at a low speed and grad- 
ually increased to full speed. 

Probably the best way of oper- 
ating a cream separator with a 
gas engine is by means of a 
governor pulley designed espe- 
cially for the purpose. This pul- 
ley may be attached to the floor, 
wall or ceiling, or to a line shaft. 
In using it the engine is started 
and after it has gotten up to 
speed, by means of a lever, the 
separator can be gradually 
started. The speed can be regu- 
lated by the adjustments pro- 
vided on the governor pulley, 
and it will maintain a uniform 
speed regardless of variations in 
the speed of the engine. 

Whenever possible the engine 
should be kept in a separate room 
as the odors of gasoline, exhaust 
gases, and greases and oils may 
taint the butter or milk. For 
this reason it is quite advisable 
that the engine should be located 
elsewhere than in the same room 
with the cream separator. Where 
used for other work, the gas 
engine will operate the separator 
cheaper than can be done by hand 

G. A. Dechant in New Position 

After twenty-one years of ex- 
perience covering practically every 
phase of implement sales, service, 
and advertising, Geo A. Dechant 
resigned as advertising manager 
of the J. I. Case Threshing Ma- 
chine Company, on Dec. 1. 

When he handed in his resigna- 
tion he fully intended to accept 
a position with an advertising 
agency in Chicago. Further con- 
sideration, however, caused him 
to decide in favor of staying in 
Racine, his home for many years, 
and he joined the staff of the 
Western Advertising Agency. 

Starting as a youth of twenty 
in the repair and extra depart- 
ment of the Case T. M. company, 
and passing rapidly through the 
threshing machine and steam en- 
gine erection and testing depart- 
ments, Mr. Dechant became a 
salesman at the Oshkosh, Wis., 
branch house in the fall of 1903. 
After three years of sales work 
he was given charge of the Case 
branch house at Harrisburg, Pa., 
with supervision over 15 sales- 
men and 125 dealers in Central 
Eastern States, and with full re- 
sponsibility for sales, sales pro- 

motion, collection, and for the 
performance of machines de- 
livered to his customers. 

In 1916, the resignation of the 
then advertising manager for the 
Company created a vacancy at 
Racine which Mr. Dechant, be- 
cause of his intimate knowledge 
of the machines in the Case line, 
and his demonstrated ability to 
sell in competition, was called 
upon to fill. Under his efficient 
management, Case advertising for 
the last five years has been main- 
tained at a notable standard. 

In his new work with the West- 
ern Advertising Agency, Mr. 
Dechant's ability will have a 
wider range of expression. His 
services and experience will be 
at the command of all clients 
whose sales efforts take them in 
the farm field. His many friends 
in the implement business join 
in wishing him a large measure 
of success in his new connection. 

The Development of the Mech- 
anical Milker 

During the past ten year the 
fundamental principles of the milk- 
ing machine have not been al- 
tered but the mechanical details 
have been perfected to a very 
great degree. The practicability 
of the milking machine has been 
fully established. 

One of the obstacles in the past 
has been the power problem. This 
is being solved, however, by the 
universal use of the gas engine 
and the increased use of the elec- 
tric motor. Reliability and cer- 
tainty of power increases the 
practicability of the milking ma- 
chine at least 60 per cent, especi- 
ally where electricity is available. 

Much of the success of the 
milker, however, depends upon 
the operator and the condition in 
which he keeps the machine, but 
there is no question but what to- 
day most mechanical milkers are 
more efficient than the average 
hand milker when everything is 
taken into consideration. 

Just Business Intelligence 

No farmer can afford to go 
without an implement 'that he 
actually needs. If he does, the 
effectiveness of his efforts is im- 
paired just that much. Multiply 
his needless privation by the num- 
ber of other farmers who have 
been equally short-sighted, and it 
is not difficult 'to reach some sort 
of ?-n estimate of the economic 
loss which the entire agricultural 
and commercial cummunity must 
undergo because of any such 
widespread practice.

Both ase made by

kind in the world. 

One business that hasn't suffered 

Look at this diagram. It shows just how profitable the pro- 
duction of butter or butter-fat has been since 1914, and that it 
pays just as big today as ever. 

The top Hne of the black area shows the price of butter, while 
the bottom line shows the cost of feed required to produce a pound 
of butter. The thickness of the black area then shows the spread 
between cost of feed and price of butter — or the net profit. For 
example, near the end of 1921, feed to produce a pound of butter 
cost 16.9 cents; butter sold for 45.7 cents, leaving a difference of 
28.8 cents per pound, or 170% profit. 

It is easy to see why De Laval Separators and Milkers are 
selling so well. Are you getting your share of the De Laval 
business from your locahty?

Jack Snydal Heads Travellers 

At the recent annual meeting 
of the North-West Commercial 
Travellers Association of Canada, 
Jack Snydal, traveller in Southern 
Manitoba for the John Deere 
Plovi^ Co., was elected president 
of the organization. 

This honor conferred by the 
members of the association, who 
number several thousands, and 
covering territory from the Great 
Lakes to Vancouver, comes to 
Jack as a reward for his untiring 
energy, clear business foresight 
and consistent effort to benefit 
the lot of that friend of retail m-er- 
chants — the Travelling Salesman. 
Last year Mr. Snydal was Vice- 
President of the Association. 

Mr. Snydal was born at Winni- 
peg Beach in 1879, being the 
youngest man to occupy the im- 
portant head of the Travellers 
organization. At the age of eight- 
een he entered the retail imple- 
ment business with his uncle, the 
late Chris Johnson, Baldur, who 
was for many years one of the 
best known dealers in Manitoba. 
With his uncle Mr. Snydal had a 
thorough training in the retail im- 
plement trade for eight years — 
canvassing, selling locally, setting 
up machines and book-keeping. 

There was not a side of the busi- 
ness that he did not have to see 

On the first of March, 1905, he 
joined the sales staflf of the Inter- 
national Harvester Co., covering 

Representative of the John Deere Plow 
Company, elected president of N. W. C. 
T. A. 

Southern Manitoba. He remained 
with the Harvester organization 
until February, 1911, when he 
joined the sales staff of the John 
Deere Plow Co., still remaining 
in his old territory. South Man- 
itoba. Seventeen years in one ter- 

ritory is no small part of a sales- 
man's life, but few travellers are 
as popular and well liked by their 
customers as is the case between 
Mr. Snydal and the implement 
dealers in his territory. 

Outside a busy career on the 
road Mr. Snydal is known every- 
where in sporting circles as 
"Speed" Snydal, the man who to 
a large extent, was responsible 
for bringing into being the fam- 
ous Falcon Hockey Team which 
won the World's Hockey Cham- 
ionship in the Olympic Sports, at 
Antwerp in 1920. He is at pres- 
ent president of the Falcons. 

Mr. Snydal is a past counsellor 
of -the Order of United Commer- 
cial Travellers of America. We 
wish him every success in his fut- 
ure business career, and a full 
order book in 1932. 

Sharpe Leaves Farm Machinery 

tant General Sales Manager of the 
Cleveland Tractor Company, 
Cleveland, Ohio. Previous to go- 
ing to Cleveland, Mr. Sharpe was 
with the De Laval Separator 
Company in New York for nearly 
ten years and, before going to 
New York was Advertising Man- 
ager for Studebaker interests at 
South Bend, Indiana for four 

Through his activities in the 
various national marketing and 
advertising organizations and, as 
a speaker and writer on distribu- 
tion problems, Mr. Sharpe has 
become widely known as a care- 
ful student of marketing ques- 

G. B. Sharpe who, for the past 
fifteen years has been prominent- 
ly identified with the leading con- 
cerns in the farm machinery in- 
dustry, has just been appointed 
Advertising Manager of the Bur- 
roughs Adding Machine Co., De- 
troit, Mich. 

For the last two and a half 
years Mr. Sharpe has been Assis- 

Allis Chalmers Lowers Prices 

The AUis-Chalmers Mfg. Co., 
Milwaukee, Wis., announces that 
its 18-30 tractor, will be known 
as the A.-C. 20-35, and the smaller 
tractor, formerly known as 
the 12-20, will be known as 
the A.-C. 15-25. These changes 
in ratings follow the reports of 
tests of these tractors made under 
the conditions of the Nebraska 
tractor testing law. The 20-35 
is now priced at $1885 factory, 
and the 15-25 at $1350. 

Standardize Your Business 

CAREFUL customer buying throughout this country has caused 
dealers to seek a safer and more profitable footing for their 
business. In the implement trade, as in others, there has been 
a closer adherence to well-known, established lines. 

To the shrewd dealer, who realizes the great advantage of stan- 
dardizing his trade, the E-B Line of^ers many distinct advantages. 
The big, well-established, reputable line includes power farming 
equipment as well as horse-drawn tools. It makes possible closer 
credit relations, larger discounts through quantity purchases and 
shipments, and assures the widest margin of profit. 

By standardizing his own business and concentrating his sell- 
ing effort on one line of established quality, the E-B dealer en- 
courages the farmer to standardize his machinery. Thus he has 
a smaller number of repair items to stock and is able to give 
more prompt service at less expense. 

The ErB full line dealer concentrates his selling efforts on one 
line of established quality. When he sells one good machine he 
finds it much easier to sell another bearing the same trade mark. 

The E-B Line will help you to put your business on a more prof- 
itable operating basis now. Ask the distributor nearest y®u.

Facts Regarding the Power 
Farming Show 

Splitdorf Organization Names 

Nebraska Will Continue Tractor 

In the U. S. Nebraska was the 
first state to prescribe that trac- 
tors sold within the state should 
be officially tested. The agricul- 
tural engineering department of 
the state university at Lincoln 
was given the job of conducting 
the tests. At the cost of some 
$30,000 the testing plant was 
equipped and last year 70 tractors 
were given complete tests. Pro- 
bably no single line of work ac- 
complished by any state insti- 
tution has been of such direct 
value to the entire power farm- 
ing field as were the Nebraska 
tractor tests. 


The Canadian headquarters of 
the Splitdorf organization, the 
Splitdorf Electrical Co. Ltd. is 
moving from its present location 
at 469 Yonge St., Toronto tO| 
more commodions and up to date 
quarters at 490 Yonge St. 

C. K. Nelson, Canadian man- 
ager of the company informs Can- 
adian Farm Implements that in 
their new premises they will be 
in a position to give "even greater 
service than in the past to users 
of Splitdorf products, such as 
Aero & Dixie magnetos, "Green 
Jacket" spark plugs, Peened pis- 
ton rings, etc. The Company will 
welcome enquires from West 
Canadian car, tractor truck and 
engine dealers in connection with 
their well known line. 

The 7th National Tractor and 
Power Farming Show will be held 
February 6 to 11, 1922, in the 
new exhibit building, at the Minn- 
esota State Fair Grounds. This 
building is now being equipped 
with additional steam heating 
equipment — the State Fair Board 
has approved an expenditure of 
something like $45,000.00 for this 
purpose — and there is no danger 
of either exhibitors or visitors be- 
ing frozen out. 

The purpose of the show is 
sales promotion and the education 
of the farmer to a more general 
use of mechanical power in his 
operations. To this end exhib- 
itors are being asked to make 
their exhibits as educational as 
possible, and the Agricultural Col- 
lege of the University of Minn- 
esota has outlined and will spon- 
sor a practical and comprehensive 
educational program, to run for 
four days of the show. This work, 
logically arranged, will be in dir- 
ect charge of well kiiQwn agri- 
cultural engineering authorities,' 

from the University of Minnesota 
and from other institutions of like 
character. The best men in this 
field will be at the show, in active 
charge of this educational pro- 

The list of exhibitors is large 
and is increasing each day. Al-

geographically, from the At-

Sell the Tractor For Industrial 

Just' because the fanner has 
bought most ' of the tractors in 
the past is no sign that there are 
not ready markets for -them. 
What about our Hues of indus- 
try in which heavy hauling has 
to be done? 

For instance, one of the largest 
gypsum companies in the United 
States uses a battery of Hart-Parr 
tractors to haul wheeled scrapers 
for filling their dump trains which 
haul the dirt to their plants. The 

one tractor shown in the illustra- 
tion is credited by the officials of 
the gypsum company with doing 
the work formerly done by twelve 
mules and four men and doing it 
more efficiently. 

There are almost limitless poss- 
ibilities in other lines similar to 
the surface gypsum mines. We 
can recall, offhand, batteries of 
tractors at work in clay beds for 
brick and tile plants ; doing strip 
work in surface coal mines; per- 
forming hauling work of all kinds 
of manufacturing plants; doing 

all kinds of road work, such as 
maintenance, grading, hauling, 
excavating, operating stone crush- 
ers, etc. ; ditching machines ; do- 
ing logging work in the lumber 
woods ; hauling buildings for 
moving contractors; hauling and 
winch work in the oil fields ; and 
thus the Hst could go on and on, 
the limit being the limits of in- 
dustry in general. 

Perhaps in every such instance 
the tractor is not immediately 
adaptable but with a few changes 
or slight additional equipment of 

a home made kind, it can quickly 
be adapted to the work at hand. 

During the 1933 season a 
dealer's success is going to be 
measured in terms of his adapt- 
ability to changing conditions. 
Every lead is worth running 
down. Adapting the product to 
sell to the needs of humanity is 
real salesmanship. 

President of Ontario Dealers 
Association Asks for Increased 

L. Hall, President of the On- 
tario Implement Dealers Associ- 
ation, in a letter addressed to all 
the leading manufacturers in that 
province, says in part. 

"The retail implement business 
in Ontario is in a bad way. The 
poor business of the past year 
has resulted in the financial em- 
barrassment of the dealers to such 
an extent that their prospects of 
success for the coming year are 
anything but bright. 

"The discounts must be made 
larger. In order to enable the 
dealer to make a decent living 
after providing for his selling ex- 
pense, I would suggest that not 
a cent less than 35 per cent off 
the list is adequate for one-pay 
sales; 30 per cent off on two-pay 
sales, and 17% off on three-pay 

"In return for these increased 
discounts the dealers would en- 
dorse and guarantee all accounts. 

"Roofing, fence and fertilizer 
manufacturers, who are in the 
"habit of allowing the trade tVz to 
10 per cent off the list, should in- 
crease their discounts to at least 
30 per cent. Their goods cannot 
be profitably handled by the 
dealer for less money. 

"There never was a time when 
better treatment would be more 
appreciated by the dealers. 

"If the scale of discounts that 
I have, on behalf of the Ontario 
Dealers' Association, suggested 
were to be put into effect, the 
manufacturers would be aston- 
ished at the difference that it 
would make in their sales. 

"The dealers would get good 
safe business, and would be peg- 
ging away every day. They would 
have, some heart in their work, 
because it would not be merely 
a case of swapping dollars. They 
could see a living profit in their 

U. S. Implement Exports 

The United States exported in 
the ten months ending October, 
implements valued at $33,759,176 
compared with $38,593,057 dur- 
ing the corresponding period of 

1930. The exports of tractors 
and parts from April 1 to Oct. 31, 

1931, was $3,097,646.

The Minneapolis Tractor Show 

Bearing in mind that the show 
is to visuaHze the progress and 
importance of the tractor indus- 
try, and realizing that it is an 
instituti(^ of great magnitude, 
of immense educational value to 
manufacturers, dealers and farm- 
ers alike, Mr. Meister, Manager of 
the Tractor Bearings Division of 
the Hyatt Roller Bearing Com- 
pany, announces that the whole 
scheme of the Hyatt exhibit will 
be based upon the foregoing facts. 

The Hyatt Company have al- 
ways taken seriously the vari- 
ous shows and demonstrations, 
believing that every company 
owes something of an educational 
value to the industry of which it 
is part, and even greater efforts 
will be made to make the Minne- 
apolis show the most valuable of 
all for as Mr. Meister states at 
no time during the life of the 
poAver farming industry has the 
need for a tractor exhibit been 
felt as it is at this time. There- 
fore, greater effort should be- 
made on the part of every Com- 
pany which is a part of the 
power farming industry to make 
this show a greater success than 

The Average Farmer Must 
be Shown 

The wise tractor prospect does 
not accept a tractor's general 
reputation for successful use. 
Farms differ, soils differ, any 
number of individual conditions 
must be considered and it is as 
much the dealer's duty as the 
farmer's desire to prove that the 
tractor will do that particular 
prospect's work satisfactorily. 

A clean cut sale which will 
make more sales, is generally 
preceded by a successful dem- 
onsitration. . Such demonstrations 
are more or less private and in- 
volve purchase obligation. They 
are the educational demonstra- 
tions which close the sale and 
begin the new owner's tractor 
education at the same time. 

Even then the cautious type of 
farmer will have more questions 
to ask before he is fully sold. He 
will want to satisfy himself that 
the dealer carries an adequate 
stock of repair parts. Tractors, 
no matter how well builit, are 
bound to need repairs sometimes 
and the dealer who cannot supply 
his owners with parts on a mo- 
ment's notice has little chance of 
building a permanent tractor

Every Dealer Should be Tractor -Informed 

It is the duty of every Tractor Dealer to be Tractor- infotmed. The modern Dealer should be a power farm- 
ing expert and be able to determine the conditions, including kind of work, amount of work, soils and crops, 
under which a Tractor can be used to the advantage of the farmer. He will have no difficulty in getting his 
share, or more, of the Tractor business in his territory if he equips himself to be of real Tractor service to the 

The 7th National Tractor Show and Power Farming Exposition will afford you an opportunity to familiarize 
yourself with the progress that has been made in this wonderful industry — an industry that has grown to such 
a remarkable extent that during 1921 Tractors and Tractor-drawn machinery manufactured reached the enot- 
mous sum of $332,400,000 — or 62 per cent of all farm equipment manufactured. If you expect to sell Tractors 
during 1922, you cannot afford to miss this big Exposition.

In the Year Ahead 

After a year that has been 
fraught with the utmost difficul- 
ties what is the attitude of the 
experienced implement dealer at 
the commencement of 1922? What 
does he mean to do? What les- 
sons will he learn from the past 
twelve months? 

By careful- planning, wise fi- 
nancing, conservative buying and 
strenuous labor he hopes to 
weather the storm and be pre- 
pared to reap the harvest of busi- 
ness that must come to the pro- 
gressive dealer when the pres- 
ent menacing conditions are re- 
lieved. He fully realizes the pres- 
ent dilemma of his customers and 
sympathizes with them. 

He does not think that the re- 
cently announced reductions in 
the price of farm equipment for 
1922 will satisfy his customers nor 
will greatly stimulate buying be- 
yond actual needs. He does not 
expect that his volume of business 
for 1922 will be very much 
greater than 1921. He will buy 
conservatively for 1923. 

Out of his present experiences 
he will evolve a better financial 
policy for his business. In the 
future his notes will bear an 
earlier maturity date. 

He knows that either the price 
of farm products must come up 
or the prices of other commod- 
ities, including wages paid labor 
and transportation charges, must 
come down. He has faith in him- 
self and' in his ability to cope with 
the present situation, in the ulti- 
mate return of his customers to 
normal buying activity. 
- It is none too early for dealers 
to prepare today for the return 
swing of the pendulum. Don't 
overstock, but by all means don't 
under-stock, either in machines 
or in optimism. We are arriving 
nearer a settlement of many of 
our present difficulties. It is very 
important that the dealers be 
ready with the ability and the cap- 
acity to go out and sell the farm- 
ers who will return to the buying 
market in ever-increasing num- 

Consider the Cow 

The present situation proves 
one' point very plainly, and that 
is that where the farmers prac- 
tice crop rotation and livestock 
growing, particularly dairying 
with a number of milk cows, they 
are generally in far better shape 
than in all-grain areas. 

If ever there was a time when 
the farmer should have financial 
assistance to "purchase dairy cows 
it i& now. By getting a good 
numbi^f of farmers in your terri- 
tory! to milk a reasonable number

Improvement Apparent 

except corn, were short, and farm- 
ers' returns the poorest since 1914. 
Industrial outputs were reduced. 

Liquidation in the form of fail- 
ure was heavy in 1921, as already 
stated, both number and liabilities 
exceeding any previous records. 
For this, low prices of farm pro- 
ducts in the country and re- 
stricted employment in the cities — 
reduced purchasing power, in 
short — were mainly responsible. 
With the close of 1931 and the re- 
alization that two years of liquid- 
ation and depression have passed, 
the feeling of cheerfulness is more 
marked than it was. Summed up, 
the business barometer is now set 
at about "fair," but courage and 
care seem to be essentials in the 
commercial world as we face, the 
uncertainties of 1923. 

Jn their annual report, issued 
on January 3, Bradstreets say in 

Nineteen-twenty-one was a 
many-sided year, and if a descrip- 
tion were sought in a phrase, it 
might be said to have been the 
last word in irregularity. It was 
a period of liquidation during 
which the boom of 1919, pun- 
ctured in 1920, was pretty thor- 
oughly deflated. Commodity 
prices as a whole, continuing the 
reaction of 1920, though ^at a 
slower pace, were reduced to the 
lowest level since 1916, or half 
the distance from the 1920 peak, 
while retail prices fell about one- 
fourth, on the average. Crops, 

Join Your Association . 

Don't expect other implement 
dealers to make all the "sacrifice

forces with them and make your 
association of implement dealers 
a vital, living force in the farm

Resolve, right now, that you 
will join a dealer's association. 
The dues are nothing compared 
to the benefits received. 

Attend your conventions, Min-

get the other fellow's ideas. 

Without in any way suggest- 
ing that we are financial experts, 
it would seem that the present 
system of financing the farmer is 
the most costly, least effective and 
most circuitous that could poss- 
ibly b^ devised. 

Farm financing starts at the 
wrong end. This applies vitally 
to the implement business. The 
farmer buys? his implements on 
time. The dealer has usually to 
carry the farmer. The whole- 
saler or jobber has often to carry 
the dealer, and in turn the manu- 
facturer has to obtain funds to 
assure production of implements 
so that he has to be carried by 
the bank or the investment mar- 

If wealth comes out of the soil, 
it is evident that the banks and 
investment market must primar- 
ily be supported by the farmers. At 
least it is obvious that the money 
from the current crop must pay 
the bill in the end. 

This crab-like system of financ- 
ing is strange. Every hand 
through which the money goes 
takes its tithe. — from bank, manu- 
facturer, wholesaler, dealer — to 
farmer. The farmer gets accommo- 
dation but he pays sweetly for it. 
His apparent cost is only the in- 
terest on his note — but we know 
that his real cost is included in 
the price of the implements. We 
will admit that the steps necess- 
ary in this remarkable progress 
of operating capital are unavoid- 
able, and that the interest at every 
step must be taken. But we sub- 
mit that the whole system is a 
development of a poor means to 
serve the financial requirements 
of the farmer. 

Some means must be devised 
which will supply the farmer with 
money at a reasonable rate so 
that he can be a cash purchaser. 
In the ultimate this will lower the 
price of the implements and build 
greater stability in every factor 
in the chain of implement dis- 
tribution from manufacturer to 

Advertising as a Trade Stimulant 

A remarkable view of condi- 
tions is that of the firm who dis- 
continues advertisi'rtg, and then 
wonders why business is so poor. 
The present time shows that in 
every case where a firm has main- 
tained its advertising its volume 
has kept up as compared with 
the house in a similar line which, 
through mistaken economy, re- 
garded advertising as a type of 
expense to be cut out. 

Advertising properly applied 
so as to make every dollar invest-

ed pay, will bring higher divi- 
dends than ever before in busi- 
hess history. It is far from sound 
policy for any firm to cut out 
the advertising on which it has 
built a strong reputation, for ad- 
vertising is a mighty factor in 

Some men say that no matter 
what advertising is done, condi- 
tions are such that it will have no 
effect. If so, are the hundreds 
of thousands of firms who have 
maintained their publicity sim- 
ply wrong? Their balance sheets 
prove otherwise. Continuity in 

advertising is as essential as 
keeping one's premises open for 
business. If a man shaves to- 
day and then discontinues until 
next week his appearance will 
suffer. So will the firm who lets 
its goods fade in the minds of the 
dealer or consumer. 

Selling a man is a matter of re- 
petition. You convert him once 
but must convince him again. 
Keep your goods before him all 
the time. Keep his mind on your 
product or stock. The human 
mind wabbles. Advertising will 
keep it wabbling your way.

visited the Aspinwall Canadian 
Company's branch at Guelph last 
month. He will co-operate with 
Mr. Jacques, Canadian manager, 
in the development of Canadian 

so next year. If fanning mills 
gave good seed grain last spring 
they will do so next spring. If 
tractors saved time and money 
this year they will do so next 

Apply this argument to every- 
thing in the farm equipment line, 
and there are no goods that 
should have a more reasonable 
possibility for demand. If your 
customers are to eliminate in- 
efficient equipment and increase 
yields they need the goods you 
sell. They must make up the 
losses sustained by low prices by 
increasing their yields. This 
they cannot do without up-to-date 
implements and machinery. 

Correction Regarding Claresholm 

On page 16 of our December

had made an assignment. We re- 
gret that this report was in error 
and apologize for its appearance, 
which was due to incorrect in- 
formation received.

This is not a promise but a fact in the experience 
of every grain grower who has used it. High grade 
seed wheat is expensive and not a kernel is lost if it 
is lodged in its billet through the patented force- 
feed of the Van Brunt Drill (singleor double disc.) 
Adjustable pressure springs force all discs to cut 
furrows of equal depth, and any size of seed from 
alfalfa to bearded oats passes freely and regu'arly 
through the seed tubes to its correct depth and is 
immediately covered. 


Tractor Disc Harrow 



12 H.P. on Draw Bar--26 H.P. on Belt 

We believe to be the most 
practical, economical and reli- 
able farm tractor yet designed. 
Six years of uniform success in 
giving real service has demon- 
strated this in the most em- 
phatic way. It is a three-plow 
tractor — the handiest size of all 
for any size of farm. Burns 
kerosene with no draw-back be- 
cause a special manifold, built 
to gasify the kerosene converts 
the fuel into the proper condi- 
tion for complete combustion. 
All the fuel is converted into 
power. The spark plugs are not 
fouled, the cylinders remain 
free from carbon and the lubri- 
cating oil is undiluted. 


of the combine, however, is the 
John Deere tractor-plow, equip- 
ped with genuine John Deere 
bottoms that are shaped to 
scour, turn and deal with the 
soil to the best advantage. The 
simple positive power lift in- 
sures a quick and high lift from 

the soil. No trouble from trash v ii i. • e

With Yielding Lock 

This is a real innovation in 
disc harrows. Does absolutely 
perfect work, lots of it, and the 
operator controls every move- 
ment from the seat of tractor. 
Model "L" finally and com- 
pletely discs the soil the entire 
width of the harrow, even when 
it is travelling over depressions 
and obstacles.

Before Turn of Disc Starts Upward 

NOTE the two convenient cranks — one for each section. With these cranks the gangs o 
either or both sections can be set from a straight line to extreme working angle, without 
stopping or backing. Model "L" is the most flexible of flexible harrows and can be adjusted 
to conform to irregular surfaces. 

Patent automatic yielding lock — coupling locks rear section when going 
straight ahead, preventing rear discs from trailing in furrows made by front 
discs. When turning, this lock yields — there is no dragging of harrows 
around corners. Pivoted yoke on front ^section permits inner end of either 
gang to run above the other without raising the entire harrow from its work. 


No. 40 Gang Plow 

has been specially designed and built for the Fordson by a firm that knows 
how to provide a perfect plow service to any style or strength of power. 
"No. 40" has important built-for-the-Fordson features possessed by no 
competitive plow. 

NOTE ; the self adjusting hitch, no other plow has it. With this the 
plow automatically maintains the correct line of draft as depth of plowing 
is varied. Bottoms run true and have the right suction at all times — no 
"nosing in" or "hopping out" of the soil. 

The clevis fluxes up and down; permitting the plow to run smoothly, 
to maintain even depth and keep on doing first-class work regardless of 
action of the tractor in passing over uneven ground. It weighs no more 
than the average horse-drawn sulky. Beams are guaranteed not to bend 
or break. Frame connections are hot-rivetted extra strong. 

You can't start the New Year with greater prospects than by getting in 
close touch with the John Deere line— what it means in making the farm 
and consequently the dealer's job a big paying business.

Harvester Head Sent Message 
to Dealers 

' In his Christmas message to 
the dealers of his organization 
Harold F. McCormick, president 
of the International Harvester 
Company, said in part: 

"We have built during these 
past years a structure meant to 
withstand any difficulties which 
may be encountered from adverse 
economic or competitive condi- 
tions. We are built to weather 
any storm'. 

"But although we can be fear- 
less, yet we must not be hazard- 
ous. We can be foreseeing and 
yet not blind to each moment of 
today. The Harvester family is 
undivided, though some at this 
time may be within the immediate 
ranks of the family and some may 
be outside waiting for the gates 
of activity again to be thrown 
en. Avelcoming- revival and 

the return of those for the time 
being away. 

"Today the farmers are buying 
more than they have been in the 
immediate past, and if we were 
farmers perhaps we would, from 
good judgment or from necess- 
ity have done just what they did. 
How can we otherwise do honor 
and credit to them than by re- 
specting their point of view, and 
making the best of it until they 
are in a different condition of 
mind ? 

"It is natural, however, that 
while they try not to buy we 
should try to sell, and that this 
should result in the present equil- 
ibrium between the two economic 
ideas. Let the matter be talked 
out and settled on that basis. 
When the Harvester Company 
selling organization can show the 
farmer he needs its goods in large 
quantities, then the Harvester 

Company manufacturing organ- 
ization can quickly reassemble to 
produce them." 

British Manufacturers Ready for

B. G. Jones, manager of the

Britain. Mr. Jones visited the 
leading British factories produc- 
ing magnetos and ignition equip- 
ment, and states that he finds the 
British manufacturers fully pre- 
pared to develop an overseas de- 
mand for their product. Several 
leading British lines will be on 
the market in Canada this year.

How Can a Farmer Judge the 
Best Tr actor t o Buy ? 

W. S, Frederickson, Sales Manager Hart-Parr Company 

At the present time there are 
manufactured and advertised for 
sale about 230 different makes of 
tractors. In the writer's opinion 
in five years there will be less 
than twenty of these same com- 
panies building tractors. This 
seems unbelievable, but neverthe- 
less many industries in similar 
lines of business have gone. 
through the same experience 
Recently the writer saw a list ol 
was was termed "Orphan Auto- 
mobiles," and in this list there 
were 336 automobile makers who 
had marketed cars and in a short 
time had gone out of business. 

It would be mighty nice if a 
farmer had a short-cut for judging 
a tractor so that he could be sure 
it would not be an orphan in a 
few years. There is no such 
short-cut, because, in addition to 
a tractor being correctly designed, 
there are elements of manage- 
ment, finances, etc., to be taken 
into consideration, and a farmer 
is very much handicapped to 
judge whether a company has 
eflficient management and suffi- 
cient finances to make a success. 

Factors to Consider 

There are elements, however, 
that a farmer can judge, and 
which we believe are the nearest 
short-cut for a farmer to size up 
what tractor he should buy. 

The best tractor for a farmer 
-to buy is one that has ■ 

1. The least labor cost. 

2. The least fuel and oil cost, 

8. The least interest, repairs 
and deterioration cost. 

Judgment on the first item is 
not difficult because a tractor 
which will plow 12 acres in 10 
hours, as compared with a trac- 
tor that only plows 6 acres in 10 
hours, reduces the labor cost of 
the tractor one half. So a farmer 
should see that he has a tractor 
with a capacity for a large volume 
of work in a short time. Plenty 
of surplus power permits a trac- 
tor to do the largest volume of 
work without the overloading 
which causes rapid deterioration. 

The second point, fuel and oil 
cost, is not as large a matter in 
the average tractor as either of 
the other two. Nevertheless, this 
item should be watched carefully 
and the farmer should convince 
himself that the fuel expense of 
the tractor is reduced to the 
minimum. "Without question, 
this means that a tractor must 
be a successful kerosene burner, 
it must use sufficient lubricating 
oil to properly lubricate and yet 
it should not use so much that 
the expenses of lubricating oil 
are prohibitive. 

The final division, interest, re- 
pairs and deterioration cost, is an 
item, complicated on. the surface, 
but a little analysis will permit 
a farmer to judge a tractor from 
this angle. 

If a farmer pays $3,000 for a 
tractor, to do the same work as 
a tractor he can buy for $1,500, 
his interest cost will be double. 

Repairs on an inaccessible, 
complicated design will always be 
much greater than those on a 
simple, accessible design. It is 
not altogether the cost of repairs 
to make replacements that counts, 
but the time to make these re- 
placements must be taken into 
consideration also. 

The average connecting rod 
bearing sells for $3. If a man re- 
places a bearing and it takes him 
ten hours to do so, as compared 
with another tractor which can 
be replaced in five hours, his 
repair cost is one-third more in 
the complicated design. 

Deterioration is the natural 
wear and tear on the tractor. 
A farmer can be a good judge on 
deterioration, for if a tractor is 
constructed with small, fine parts, 
needing minute adjustments, he 
can expect his deterioration to in- 
crease very rapidly over a tractor 
that has large, husky, long-life 
parts, where mirfute adjustments 
are desirable, but not necessary. 

In designing tractors there have 
been two types of engineers. The 
type that design with the idea in 
mind of its requiring an expert 
mechanic to overhaul or rebuild a 
tractor, and the type that design 
with the idea in mind that the 
farmer shall be his own expert 
and mechanic. 

We have made a great many 
investigations on tractor costs 
with the result that we have come 
to the conclusion that the three 
components making "the best 
tractor" are divided in importance 
as follows : 31l}f per cent is labor, 
37^ per cent is interest, repairs 
and deterioration, and 25 per cent 
is fuel. 

The tractor which reduces these 

costs to the lowest figure is the 
best tractor for anyone to boy.

I. J. Maha, Minneapolis, is 
manufacturing a new type of 
starter for tractors, of his own in- 
vention. In its operation the start- 
er turns the engine about 'ten re- 
volutions, and does it three times 
as fast as can be done by hand. 
When the engine fires once the 
spring still has tension on the 
crankshaft and turns the engine 
past the next compression, thus 
starting 'the engine .effectively. 
The device is operated from the 
platform by a lever near the steer- 
ing wheel. The crankshaft is 
turned as the spring releases, and 
after the engine starts the spring 
is rewound with the engine. In 
case the unwinding of the spring 
fails to start the engine, the 
spring can be rewound by a lever 
to get the tension.

Where Co-operation Ends 

111 a recent press communica- 
tion, C. Pickard, a county agent 
in Iowa, gave details of how co- 
operative buying by farmers may 
become a boomerange. Last year 
a farmers' association purchased 
three care of twine. The idea 
was so good that certain dealers 
were left with heavy stocks on 
hand. But, says Mr. Pickard, 
as a result, what happened? . He 
proceeds : 

"This spring it was with some 
difficulty that the dealers were 
persuaded to handle twine at all. 
It was necessary 'that dealers 
should carry twine, for some 
farmers could not pay cash at 
the car, many were in the habit 
of waiting until they ran their 
binders out brfore thinking of 
'twine, and without the dealer 
there would be no way to supply 
odd balls, for the farm bureau has 
no storehouses or distributing 

"It looks like a clever trick at 
first to show the dealers up this 
way, but when they call our bluff 
and withdraw from handling 
these commodities in which we 
have shown them up, then we are 
stuck, for we have started some- 
thing we can't finish. We are 
not prepared to give this service 
to all kinds of farmers every day 
in the year." 

U. S. Implement Firms to Extend 

of the U. S. National Assn. of 
Farm Equipment Mfgrs. has ap- 
proved the suggestions made by 
association members who will 
consider the matter. 

Under this plan, it is stated, 
it will permit a dealer to give, 
farmer's notes of $100 or more to 
manufacturers to be applied as 
direct credit on the dealer's ac- 
count or held as collateral. The 
notes must carry the endorse- 
ment of the dealer. The offer will 
only be good under the 1922 con- 
tract, expiring December 31, 1923. 

Wedlake Now President of 
Cockshutt Plow Co. 

His Honor Lieut-Governor H. 
Cockshutt has resigned his posi- 
tion as president of the Cockshutt 
Plow Co., Brantford, Ont. He is 
succeeded as president by George 
Wedlake, who for some time has 
been acting as vice-president and 
general manager. Mr. Wedlake 
will continue in the capacity of 
general manager as well as fill the 
presidential position. 

Cultivate Wood Saw Trade 

It is reported that a number 
of the full line implement houses 
in the United States will soon is- 
' sue a plan for extending terms on 
implement sales to farmers. It is 
believed that the terms committee 

Several companies manufacture 
wood saws suitable for operation 
with tractors or stationary en- 
gines. In many districts dealers 
should be able to stimulate a de- 
mand for this type of equipment, 
for wherever there is wood to be 
cut the saw is a profitable invest- 

During the winter months, 
therefore, tractor dealers can in- 
crease their income and keep 
their sales force busy by selling 
saw mills to farmers. In com- 
munities w^here a saw mill al-

ready is owned by a farmer, other 
farmers are familiar with it and 
have a general idea of the type 
and size they would need. Deal- 
ers should be careful to see that 
pulleys are of proper size and 
ratio to give the necessary speed 
of the mill for satisfactory work. 

The Comparison of Prices 

In the farming machinery ■ in- 
dustry the consumer still regards 
the price of goods as too high. 
This may be due to the fact that 
manufacturers have made no 
special effort to show the public 
a comparison of prices twelve 
months ago and present quota- 
tions for the same lines. A num- 
ber of reductions may have been 
made in the year. Individually 
they may not be large, but total- 
ling the whole anid) comparing 
the prices of to-day with twelve 
months' ago a substantial cut 
may be evident. 

One U. S. company adopted 
this policy and advertised the 
figures. They found that many 
customers expressed suprise kt 
the sale reduction. Business was 
stimulated. It pays, in times like 
the present, to show the custom- 
er the actual reductions made in 
a twelve-month peridd, when so 
often he thinks prices are prac- 
tically as high as they were a 
year ago. 

Car Trade in Great Britain 

The automobile industry in 
Great Britain is passing 'through 
a very trying period. There is 
little hope of improved conditions 
i future and a great deal of price 
cutting is evident so as to stim- 
ulate demand. Many manufac- 
turning concerns, some owning 
hugs plants, have gone into liqui- 
dation. It is considered that a good 
number of producers will be 
squeezed out by excessive com- 

During the first nine months 
of 1921 the United Kingdom im- 
ported 4,276 cars, 2112 commer- 
cial vehicles, 3,019 chassis and 
2023 motorcycles, a total value of 
about $24,211,000. 

In the same period the United 
Kingdom exported 1557 cars, 591 

trucks, 847 chassis and 7039 
motorcycles, with a value of 
about $22,578,905. 

More than half of the imports 
came from the United States with 
Canada, France and Italy next 
in order. •

Plans for the .second annual 
show of the Western Canada 
Automotive ; Equipment associa- 
tion in the Board of Trade build- 
ing, Feb. 6 to 11, 1922, are rapidly 
nearing completion. The show 
gives promise of equaling any- 
thing of its kind ever held in 
North America, and no efforts are 
being spared by the committee in 
charge to make this an accomp- 
lished fact. 

Canada's Cream Separator 

Up to March 31, 1921, for the 
preceding fiscal year, there were 
a total of 31,001 cream separators 
made in Canada. The total value 
was $1,683,634. 

Cream separators imported 
from all countries were 24,383, 
with a value of $956,785, and ex- 
ports amount to $157,208. From 
these official figures it may be 
seen, by deducting exports, that 
the total value of separators pur- 
chased in Canada last year was 
$2,483,211. Of this amount the 
Canadian production was 61 per

A New Canadian Industry 

The Great International Harvester Factory at Chatham — The Home of the New International Speed Truck 

International Speed Truck 

The most recent addition to the line of International 
Motor Trucks is Model S Speed Truck. Impartial engi- 
neers, buyers and users unite in declaring it to be the 
strongest built light delivery truck in Canada. 

We have every reason to believe that this is true. 
And there is an excellent reason. Model S Speed Truck 
has been built down from a well established line of heavy 
duty trucks — instead of built up from a passenger car. 
Frame, wheels, tires, engine, transmission and rear axle 
are of heavy truck design. The highest grade material is 
used and no effort has been spared to make the truck 
measure up in every particular to the good reputation 
which International Motor Trucks everywhere enjoy. 

From the start the International Speed Truck has 
grown steadily in popularity among business men who 
want quality, durability and low-cost operation combined 
with speed. Sensing the growing demand for this Model, 
the Harvester Company immediately arranged for its 
manufacture at Chatham Works — where, for many years, 
Chatham, McCormick and Deering wagons and sleighs 
have been built for the Canadian trade. 

This move makes the International Speed Truck a 
genuinely Canadian-made product and brings closer to 
the user the practical after-sale inspection and engineering 
service for which International Motor Trucks are justly 
famous in every Province of the Dominion.

New Track on Model "F" Cletrac 
Radical Departure From Usual 

There are so many unique fea- 
tures in the design of the New 
Model "F" Cletrac recently 
placed on the market by The 
Cleveland Tractor Company that 
it is difficult to say which has at- 
tracted the most attention. While 
its unit oiling system, accessibil- 
ity, remarkable power in pro- 
portion to size and weight and its 
wide adaptability each demand at- 
tention in themselves, the unique 
track assembly and design of this 
model deserves special mention. 

With one other exception, 
where a ball race is employed to 
minimize track friction in a 
tractor of crawler type, the Cleve- 
land Tractor Co. states that all 
other tank-type or crawler tractors 
utilize the multiple track wheel 
type of construction and the Clet- 
rac Model "F" is the first tractor 
of this type that utiUzes a floating 
roller chain to minimize frictional 
resistance and wear of the track. 

As will be seen by the accomp- 
anying illustration, the driving 
sprocket for the track is located 
well up from the ground, for pro- 

tection from mud, grit and sand. 
The track runs upon a pressed 
steel frame which is formed as 
to provide an inner race for the 
floating roller chain, which acts 
as a bearing. The track forms the 
outer race. Owing to the solid 
support for the roller chain along 
the entire length of the tractor 
at the bottom, there is said to be 
no sagging of the track in en- 
countering rough going. The 
frame acts as a solid support. The 
use of the floating roller chain, 
upon which the track moves, 
eliminates the necessity for lub- 
ricating the track. The track 
shoes are formed cold from chro- 
me steel, and hardened, and are 
designed to present a continuous 
solid traction surface, which is

passes in importance and value 
to the world's markets any other 
trade fair or similar purpose. A 
considerable number of Canadian 
buyers are making arrangements 
to attend. Admittance is re- 
stricted to trade buyers on invita- 
tion of the British Government 
and business is not impeded by 
crowds of sightseers. 

While participation in the Fair 
is confined to manufacturers in 
the British Empire as exhibitors, 
many overseas buyers will un- 
doubtedly continue to utilize the 
services of merchant houses who 
fill so important a role in the 
export trade of the United King- 
dom. From the buyer's /point 
of view, however, the Fair has 
the great advantage of personal 
contact with the actual producer. 

In organizing the Fair, the 
British Government Department 
of Overseas Trade pays particu- 
lar attention to the comfort and 

convenience of buyers from the 
various Dominions and other 
parts of the world. Special read- 
ing and writing rooms are avail- 
able where buyers may consult 
qualified officers of the Depart- 
ment who will be able to indicate 
sources of supply of any goods ' 
required and to give information 
regarding tariffs, shipping and 
transport, trade conditions, etc., 
throughout the world.. 

Among the lines to be exhib- 
ited are :- Lighting plants, imple- 
ments, mill supplies, general ma- 
chinery, small tools, motorcycles, 
accessories, paints fencing, card- 
age products, ornamental iron 
work, etc. 

The London section of the Fair 
will be held at the White City, 
the Birmingham section in the

floor space of 1,130,000 square 
feet will be used at Birmingham 
alone. Full information naay be

British Implement Trade 

A firm of engine distributors 
in London are quoting their en- 
gines at the following prices : 
1 3-4 h.p., $125; 2 1-4 h.p., $150; 
3 h.p., $215; 4 h.p., $310 and 6 
h.p., $460. 

The "Overtinie" tractors, which 
is the British name for the Water- 
loo Boy, is carrying a new price 
of $1750, with freight paid. 

Phipps & Son, Chippenham, 
England, have adjutsed prices for 
their line of tractor plows and 
cultivators. Two-furrow plows 
are now $178, and three-furrow, 
$235. Their tractor cultivators 
are: Seven teeth, $170; nine teeth, 
$178 and eleven teeth, $205. 

The Austin light weight trac- 
tor, a popular type in Great Bri- 
tain, is quoted at $1800, f.o.b. fac- 
tory at Birmingham. 

The Implement and Machinery 
Review, London, reports that al- 
though the tractor demand in 
Oreat Britain is discouraging ow- 
ing to conditions, farmers are 
showing a keen interest in culti- 
vating and plowing outfits. 

In British cream separator 
trade the bottom is being knock- 
e-1 out of the market by the intro- 
duction of German made ma- 
clMnes at prices which the Brit- 
ish factory cannot hope to meet. 

The British are a remarkable 
race'. At the recent Dairy Farm- 
ers' Association Show in London, 
a silver medal was presented to a 
German-made cream separator 
exhibited by an Irish firm. 

In England the Case tractor is 
sold by the Company's branch in 
London. The 10-18 is quoted at 
$1500 and the 15-27 at $2425. 

There is at present a consider- 
able amount of price cutting go- 
ing on in the tractor trade in Great 
Britain. The pace is being set 
by an imported machine. Low 
price and inferior make are not 
wanted in Great Brtain. The 
director of a large implement 
house recently bought three trac- 
tors for 35 pounds, say $175. The 
machines' — you have one guess 
at the make — were imported. 
They had gone in the crank case 
and to the farmer-owner were 

One of the leading British 
thresher factories of large capa- 
citv,is producing only 3 per cent, 
of what it is able to turn out. Con- 
ditions overseas must be akin to 
Canadian territory. Another 
story is that of a British dealer 
who normally sold a hundred 
binders in a season. Last season 
he sold three. 

Owing to conditions, three new 
designs "of British-made tractors 
are being with held from the mar- 
ket uutil a more propitious out- 
look is apparent. 

In a recent address on the trac- 
tor, a British engineer stated that 
the weight limit for machines in 
that country should be 3360 lbs. 
He believed that time would de- 
velop two 'types of tractor for 
British trade — a 45 h.p. machine 
for deep plowing and threshing, 
and a 15 h.p. tractor for harrow- 
ing, packing and other light work. 
For the immediate future a gen- 
eral purpose tractor of 25 to 30 
h. p. would sell most readily. The 
greatest necessity , he claimed, 
was a quick and efficient means 
of changing from spuds to con- 
tinuous rim wheels, and vice 

A leading British designer, in 
talking upon plow development 
for the past fifty years, says that 
even in 1870 farmers considered 
the rotary tillage principle of cul- 
tivation. The rotary cultivator, 
however, could not replace the 
plow far it did not set up the land 

The Bon-Accord Engineering 
Co., Aberdeen, Scotland, have 
placed an all-steel thresher on the 
market. This machine is espec- 
ially designed to meet the Indian 
demand for a type to simply, 
thresh the wheat and shake the 
straw. The grain is only partial- 
ly separated. 

Martins' Cultivator Co., Stam- 
ford, have developed a self lift 
tine tractor harrow, especially de- 
signed to work with any tractor. 
Weighting about 1120 lbs.., it has 
a 12 foot cut. Twenty-nine teeth 
are provided, adjustably mounted 
on three independent steel frames. 
The centre harrow is carried by 
the main frame, which runs on 
wheels, and the two side sections, 
by the removal of four bolts, fold 
over the centre frame allowing 
quick and easy transport. 

A't the anunal show of the Bri- 
tish Dairy Farmers' Association 
held in Loridon, a bronze medal 
was awarded the Fleury feed 
grinder, as made by Fleurys' 
Sons, Aurora, Ont. The Massey- 
Harris Co, showed their cream 
separators for the first time in 
Great Britain. 

Demand Improves in Texas , 

Dealers in Texas report that an 
increase of 35 per cent, in the 
sale of farm implements in prac- 
tically every section of Texas, as 
compared with sales figures at 
present is expected in the spring 
of 1922.

Handling the Repair Problem in the Implement Store 

Objection is most frequently 
made to the margin of profit to 
be made on repairs. The margin 
is small enough, in truth, when it 
is considered that the average 
sale probably amounts to not 
more than one dollar, and when 
it is further considered that often 
a great deal of time must be given 
to the ordering and tracing of a 
single small repair item. On 
farm implement repairs the per- 
centage of gross profit for the 
dealer usually runs from 25 to 30 
per cent. 

Now it is perfectly evident 
that an average of 30 per cent 
gross is not a large margin of pro- 
fit on any line where the stock 
investment is large in proportion 
to the sale — in other words, where 
the turnover is small. Where re- 
pairs are carried in stock, there- 
fore, the most important point is 
to see that the stock is carefully 
assorted. Implement repairs, for 
instance, are seasonal goods ; for 
certain parts — such as plow 
points, mowing machine sections, 
etc. — there is a demand only dur- 
ing a few weeks, each year. If any 
stock is carried over, it must be 
carried for a full year. 

Despite this fact, it is not un- 
usual, to step into implement 
stores and find stocks of certain 
implement repairs sufficient not 
merely for one year but for two 
or three years. Here is where the 
big loss comes in. It is a distinct 
loss to sell a line of goods at a 30 
per cent, margin and turn the 
stock but once in two or three 

On the other hand, the repair 
stock may be ordered a short time 
before the season opens, and if 
the stock has been ordered with 
discretion, the most of it will be 
turned and within a very short 
time. The objection may be ad- 
vanced that it is never possible to 
know in advance what the sea- 
son's demand will be for various 
items of repairs. However, the 
dealer who keeps accurate records 
of his purchases or sales of re- 
pair items will have little diffi- 
culty in ordering a stock of the 

One of the most successful im- 
plement dealers in the country 
has a system all his own for keep- 
ing track of the repair stock. He 
keeps on hand a large assortment 
of parts for the various machines 
he sells, and is rarely ever out of 
any item — and yet his investrnent 
in repairs is not large. The secret 
simply lies in the fact that he ha-' 
a system. 

Through a careful study of his 
purchases of repair parts for a 
number of years back, together 
with the stock on hand, this 
dealer was able to estimate with 
reasonable accuracy the amounts 
of various repair items which he 
might expect to sell in a normal 
year. With these figures at hand, 
he made up a stock list for refer- 
ence purposes. Beneath the name 
of each item, on this list, was 
noted both the maximum and the 
minimum amounts which should 
be carried in stock. 

The salesmen in this store were 
required to make a notation, on a 
special sheet provided for that 
purpose, whenever a repair item 
was taken from stock. Each even- 
ing, during the busy season, the 
bookkeeper posted these deduc- 
tions on the stock list — thus keep- 
ing a perpetual inventory of the 
repair stock. Whenever the stock 
of any item approached the mini- 
mum, the attention of the buyer 
was called to that fact. And, as a 
rule, orders were sent in for some 
repairs nearly every day during 
the rush seasons. 

This dealer has no capital tied 
up in slow-moving stocks of re- 
pair parts. His system enables 
him to render an unusually good 
service to his customers and make 
a profit on it 

Handling Rush Orders 

Of course, even in the store 
where a most comprehensive 
stock of repairs is carried, there 
will be frequent calls for parts for 
which special orders will have to 
be sent in to the factory. With the 
average implement store these 
special orders probably make up 
the larger part of the business. 

Here it is that the troubles and 
disputes most frequently occur. 
In the busy seasons a number of 
these orders come in every day; 
they usually call for small parts, 
represent sales in which there is 
little profit for the dealer — and he 
often regards these orders of such 
little importance that he has no 
regular system for handling them. 
A customer 'phones in a repair or- 
der, or brings it in, and often the 
dealer or his help will make the 
notation on any slip of paper 
which may be handy. The nota- 
tion is sometimes referred to, and 
sometimes it is lost or hidden 
away in some pigeon hole for 
weeks — in which case the factor)^ 
or the transportation facilities are 
blamed for the fact that the cus- 
tomer does not get his repair as 
soon as he should have it. 

The dealer who has no regular 
system for handling repairs 
usually has on his hands a stock 
of repair parts which have been 
ordered and for which his cus- 
tomers have never called. Any 
profit which he might have made 
in handling repairs is tied up in 
this stock. 

Repair Record Cards 

These difficulties are eliminated, 
in the case of the dealer pre- 
viously mentioned, through a 
carefully-kept record of repair 
orders. Whenever an order is left 
with him for a repair item of any 
kind, a notation is made of it on 
a special repair card. Clerks are 
instructed never to make a nota- 
tion of a repair order on anything 
else but one of these special cards. 

These repair blanks are printed 
on a good grade of cardboard, 
about post-card size. Spaces are 
left to be filled in with the name 
and address of the customer, the 
date the order was left, the date 
it was sent in to the factory, the 
way it was sent — whether by 
mail, telegraph or telephone — the 
name and number of the repair 
part, the name and number of the 
article for which the repair is 
wanted, the name and address of 
the manufacturer or jobl)er to 
whom the order must be sent, 
and other similar data. 

On one side of the dealer's desk 
is a metal box, the shape of these 
cards and about large enough to 
hold twenty-five of them; the 
cards are always placed in this 
box as soon as they have been 
filled out. And on the other side 
of the desk is a similar receptacle, 
but several times larger, to which 
a card is to be transferred as soon 
as the order has been sent in to 
the factory. 

At a certain time each day the 
dealer goes through the cards in 
the one file and makes out the or- 
ders to be sent in for the repair 
parts. He then goes through the 
other file and notes the orders 
which have been held up by the 
factory and "which should be 

When a repair item is received 
from the factory, the card cover- 
ing the order is taken from the 
file. A notation is made on it of 
the date the repair was received, 
the price and the transportation 
charges. The customer is noti- 
fied when the part is received. 
This is entered on the card, also 
the date when he receives the 
part. The card is attached to the 
repair part as it awaits the cus- 

Using The Tractor for Seeding 

While admitting the advantages 
of seeding with tractors, the ques- 
tion of how extensive these are is 
a variable one limited only by the 
extent of the operations. Econo- 
mies in time, money and labor are 
increased in ratio with the cap- 
acity of tractor employed. A 
large machine drawing five or 
more drills would necessarily re- 
duce the cost of seeding per acre 
in larger degree than would be 
the case with one of lesser power. 
This rule would be equally true 
going down the line to outfits of 
but one drill and tractor, all in 
fact if properly handled, showing 
a distinct advantage over work 
of the same kind done with 
horses. In the various aspect of 

We now have many types spec- 
ial hitches to adapt drills to tractor

power also drills operative from 
the seat of the tractor by pulling 
lines to raise and lower the discs. 
• The first consideration of course 
on seeding is that the operation 
be properly performed as a means 
of obtaining satisfactory crops, 
and in this respect alone, the 
tractor-drawn drill, through vir- 
tue of its mechanical and con- 
sequently uniform motion, does 
superior work to the horse-power- 
ed implement. Where a drill is 
used with a tractor a more even 
sowing is necessarily obtained, 
owing to the fact that a team of 
horses in pulling has a swinging- 
pace or movement which is trans- 
ferred to the drill with a waving 

One of the great toubles en- 
countered in adapting the seeder 
to the tractor and the one in 
which undoubtedly lies the rea- 
son for the prejudice against the 
method, is that the hitches, em- 
ployed in the work, home-made 
attachments as a rule, were 
unsatisfactory, in that they not 
only cause improper alignment of 
the implements and poor seeding 
but that they quite frequently be- 
come disengaged or parted entire- 
ly great inconvenience and inter- 
ruption of work. This latter trou- 
ble has been most prevalent 
where the farmer has used several 
implements in gangs or series as 
he naturally would, to obtain the 
greatest economy. In such cases 
had he secured some of the prac- 
tical hitches on the market desig- 
ned particularly for such work, 
most of the trouble would have 
been eliminated as would also 
have been the objection to em- 
ploying this economical method 
of handling his implements. 

Drawing drills in gangs presents 
a slightly different problem than 
is found in handling most other 
implements, as one drill must be 
drawn in front of the other or tan- 
dem style, so that there will be no 
spaces left in the seeding. As the 
hitch to the machines in the rear 
of the tandem are not directly at- 
tached to the main hitch care 
should be taken that the latter 
is of sufficient strength to hold 
the entire load. The farmer often, 
in devising a hitch for this pur- 
pose, fails to allow for these 
extra loads, with the result that 
he experiences much trouble. Un- 
less properly arranged, it is usu- 
ally follows that these make-shift 
hitches result in piling up, due 
to the rear machine or machines 
drawing the front one entirely 
out of line on the turns. 

One argument frequently heard 
against using the tractor in seed- 
ing operations, is that injury to 
the crop results froin the tractor 
running over the seed bed. This 

objection, however, is not tenable 
in the face of results obtained, as 
careful experience and observa- 
tion fails to show where any trace 
of the tractor wheels is left in 
the ripened crop. There is a r<'.cog- 
nized tendency among farmeis to« 
exaggerate the capacity of their 
tractors in this work, particularly 
where they are influenced solely 
by the tractor's power, to pull 
loads, and attach implements in 
excess of the number limited by 
the requirements of satisfactory 

Tractor Prices Are Down 

The prices of tractors have de- 
clined to the proper level but the 
secret has beerv altog-ether too 
well kept, says the Chilton Trac- 
tor Journal. Three out of every 
four tractor dealers in the country 
believe that they can sell tractors 
"when prices come down to where 
they should", or "when tractors 
come down- as much as automo- 
biles have." 

Tractors can't be sold when 
the dealers of the coujnitry are not 
in the proper mental attitude to 
sell them. 

The farmers are pretty well 
convinced that they should be 
using tractors and possibly three 
out of every four farmers who do 

not now use tractors will admit 
that they expect to buy "when 
prices come down to the proper 

The truth of the matter is ithat 
tractor prices are down. Judged 
by comparisons with industries 
whose products are comparable, 
tractor prices are right. 

But, alas, how few know it! 
How few even in the trade, out 
among the dealers who should be 
selling them? 

Every recent compilation which 
took into consideration the prices 
of fifty-two car models showed 
a decline of 19.4 per cent, from 
the peak prices. 

At the same time a compila- 
tion of the prices on forty-six trac- 
tor models shows an average re- 
duction of 27 per cent. . 

The showing is even much 
more in favor of the tractor when 
it is appreciated that tractor 
prices did not advance to such 
high peaks as passenger cars. 

The compilation of average 
tractor prices which include forty- 
six models are based on produc- 
tion, the only equitable basis for 
reaching a logical conclusion. 

The forty-six tractors used in 
this compilation in 1920, the lat- 
est year for which figures are 
available, had a total production 
of 143,520 tractors, or 70.6 per

The drop in grain prices holds no 
terrors for the man who can counter- 
balance them with a lessened pro- 
duction cost. 

But efficient farming cannot be 
based on use of worn-out or un- 
repaired machines. Neither will it 
result when repairs are made on 
machines not worth the repairing. 

Retrenchment on the farms should 
not mean refraining from purchas-

Sisal Again Under. a Monopoly 

In a recent issue Cordage Trac- 
tor Journal, New York, says 
editorially : 

The Yucatan State Govern- 
ment has once more established 
what is virtually a monopoly of 
the Sisal Fibre industry of that 
State. This .has been accomplish- 
ed by (a) levying a heavy new tax 
— equal, with the Mexican Federal 
surtax, to 2% cents per pound ; (b) 
enacting a law restricting 
the production, designed to make 
the output about 400,000 bales 
for the next year, and (c) taking 
title to the unsold stocks of Mexi- 
can Sisal Fibre in the United 
States held by the Eric Corpora- 
tion, estimated at about 490,738 
bales. These moves have raised 
the prices of Mexican Sisal Fibre 
here from 2% cents Gulf and 3% 
cents New York, which were 
quoted up to December 13, to 6 
cents Gulf and 63^2 cents New 
York, the later quotations being- 
announced on December 27. 

A telegram from Merida, dated 
January 3, states that a law or 
decree has been adopted making 
all Fibre sold by the planters to 
the Comision Reguladora (now 
Comision Exportadora) exempt 
from the new taxes of 2^ cents.

This chart shows 
the Four Vital 
Factors necessary 
to cheapest farm 

The Power Economy 
Problem Solved 

Cheaper Power the OilPull Way 

You know that economy has always been 
the big thought in the farmer's mind 
when buying a tractor. How much his power 
costs per year determines, in a large measure, 
his operation cost and his profits. 

Four factors that make cheap power are : ( 1 ) 
Low Fuel Cost ; (2) Low Repair Cost ; (3) Long 
Life; and (4) Reasonable Purchase Price. 
^ When these Four Vital Factors are combined 
in a single tractor, cheap power must result. 

Tractor makers have known this and have 
worked toward that end for years. But it has 
remained for OilPull engineers to solve the 
problem. In this perfected, oil-burningtractor 
you find them combined for the first time. 

Cheapest Power and Why 

These OilPull records tell their own story. 
(1) An OilPull has held all official National 
FuelEconomy records for 10 years. (2) Careful 
investigations indicate that average annual 
upkeep expense among OilPulls is 50% less 
than the national annual average determined 
by Government Experts. (3) The length of life 
among OilPulls averages more than 10 years. 
(4) OilPull prices are fair and reasonable. 

OilPull design and high standard of con- 

struction are largely respKJnsible for these

Triple Heat Control — now perfected and

Triple Heat Control 

Triple Heat Control is a scientific system of 
oil burning that positively gets the power 
out of cheap kerosene. Absolutely controls 
temperatures. Motor is never too hot— never 
too cold. Warm for light loads. Gets cooler 
as load gets heavier. Only system using oil 
instead of water for cooling. The system that 
makes possible the OilPull written guarantee 
to successfully bum cheap 
kerdsene at all loads and 
under all conditions up to 
its full rated brake horse

The OilPull has everything the 
farmer wants — low fuel cost, 
low upkeep cost, long life and 
reasonable price. It will pay

The Outlook For Cream 
Separator Business 

F. J. Arend, president of the 
De Laval Separator Co., New 
Yoi'k, in a recent issue of the De 
Laval Monthly points out how 
years of crop failure and depres- 
sion actually stimulaite the sale of 
cream separators. Mr. Arend 
says : 

We know that a cream separa- 
tor is more than a cream or labor- 
saving device ; it is an important 
link in the chain of feed, cow, 
separator and cream, which en- 
ables a farmer anywhere to con- 
vert rough unmarketable feed- 
stuf¥s into one of ithe most nour- 
ishing and beneficial of foods 
known to mankind, a food which 
can be easily shipped long dis- 
tances, finds a ready market, 
yields a steady cash income, and 
depletes the soil of less fertility 
than any other system of farming. 
But all of us are perfectly familiar 
with the use and benefits of a 
cream separator, as well as how 
it is made and functions. The 
important point is that a cream 
separator is of great use and bene- 
fit to a farmer when times are bad 
and when he needs it most. 

•Therefore, when I say that 1922 
will be one of the best years we 
have ever had, if not the best, I 
am not making a fallaciously 
optimistic statement but one bas- 
ed upon sound premises. The 
production of butter or butter-fait 
at the present time is extremely 
profitable. Even in the best years 
there was seldom a time when the 

spread between cost of production 
and the selling price of a pound 
of butter was so great, and this 
comes at a time of unprecedented 
stagnation in other lines. Natural- 
ly farmers by the thousands, who 
have never given much thought 
to cows before, are turning to the 
production of butter-fat for re- 
lief. And this means many ad- 
ditional sales of cream separators. 

Furthermore, there has been a 
sub-normal replacement of old 
and virtually wornout machines 
the past year which must be made 
up within the next year or two at 
most, and which must logically 
add from 10 to 20 per cent, to 
what, our business would ordin- 
arily be the present year.

"Whenever a bunch of men gather in our community it is 
'fashionable' to start discussing the dairy industry,"— so writes 
one of our live agents. 

Similar reports come from all sections of the country. The 
dairy cow is causing an unprecedented amount of favorable 
discussion. And a might.y good fashion it is — one which will bring 
ready money, good markets for feed, increased soil fertihty, a 
steady income; in short, prosperity, to every community that 
follows it. 

The extraordinarily favorable position of the dairy business 
naturally has greatly increased the sale of De Laval Separators and 
Milkers, as Dairying and De Laval go hand in hand.

considered as well as future busi- 
ness. The implement men were 
very favorably impressed with 
the attitude of fairness and lack 
of radical ideas on the part of the 
representatives of the new Pro- 
vincial Government, and their 
sincere desire to do everything 
possible for the province as a 
whole, and to at the same time 

encourage legitimate business. 
One might say the principal re- 
sult of the conference was a gen- 
eral breaking down of any feel-

existed on either side, and the 
growth of the better feeling that 
almost always results from clos- 
er personal acquaintanceship.

offices to that end, 'to settle 
whether or not they will exhibit 
at the Regina Summer Exhibi- 
tion this year. The convenor of 
the Summer Exhibition Com-

The Sale of Repairs Discussed 
by Regina Wholesalers 

Considerable discussion took 
place on the subject of the educa- 
tional campaign to get dealers 
to sell repairs for cash only. It 
was finally agreed that each 
member should not only take this 
up direct with his dealers, by cor- 
respondence, but should drill 
this important subject and the 
reasons therefor into his travel- 
lers, and should have his travel- 
lers thoroughly review this sub- 
ject with the dealers. As far as 
possible, 'travellers will co-oper- 
ate _ with and encourage dealers 
in every town to get together 
and to stand pat on this matter. 

Mr. Malmo, who arrived in Re- 
gina during December from 
Louisiana to take charge of the 
Advance-Rumely Thresher Com- 
pany branch, attended the As- 
sociation meeting for the first 
time and explained that while 
he was transferred from the rice 
fields of the sunny South, he had 
a good many years of experience 
in the north-western States with 
their below zero weather, so 
that this one crop country with 
either feast or famine, was 
about the same experienceasinthe 
north-western States, and even 
in the south, where the rice crop 
is the only crop. 

American Manufacturers Want 
Duty Imposed on Canadian 

A report from Washington 
deals with the representation of 
the U. S. National Association 
of Farm Equipment Manufact- 
urers who appeared before the 
Senate investi<Tatin": committee 
is now conducting its tariff en- 
quiry. The Implement and Trac- 
tor Trade Journal quotes the op- 
inion expressed by Finley P. 
Mount before the Committee. His 
statement as reported from 
Washington, was as follows: 

"Common fairness entitles the 
Manufacturers of farm machinery 
in this country to ask for a 
reciprocal duty," he told the com- 
mittee in a brief which was sub- 
mitted. ,"As the matter works 
out, the Canadian manufacturer 
does not undersell the American 
manufacturer in the United 
States, but he makes a larger 
profit on goods shipped into the 
United States, and with this pro- 
fit he is enabled to and does 
undersell the American manu- 
facturer in Canada. This, of 
course, is wholly unfair and I 
believe our case is strong enough 
to merit particular consideration. 

"We ask for a duty on agricul- 
tural implements that will be 
equal to that imposed by Canada. 

The duty of 17.5 percent ad val- 
orem, plus one percent importa- 
tion tax gives the Canadian manu- 
facturer an advantage over the 
American manufacturer in this 
way : He buys his material either 
in Canada or in the United States, 
or manufactures in the United 
States, and when he comes to 
reimport he gets, a drawback of 
99 percent. His costs, so far as 
wages and overhead are con- 
cerned, are practically the same 
as those in the United States. 
I make that statement upon my 
own responsibility, based upon 
the statements of our operations 
in our Toronto plant as compared 
with those in our Battle Creek, 
Mich., plant. 

"More than 90 percent of all 
importation of agricultural imple- 
ments are from Canada. For the 
month of November, 1918, they 

amounted to $664,327; for Nov- 
ember, 1919, $3,077,617 ; for Nov- 
ember, 1920, $5,550,561." 

Mr.; Mount presented a copy 
of a resolution /passed by the 
National Implement and Vehicle 
Association at its annual meet- 
ing in Atlantic City, in October, 
1920. The resolution asks the 
Government for reciprocal duty 
between the United States and

A. W. Reed Dead 

Friends and acquaintances of 
Arthur W. Reed will be very sor- 
ry ito hear of his sudden death at 
Calgary on January 31. Mr. Re- 
ed was in good health up to the 
Saturday before. On that day he 
developed a cold which rapidly 
turfted into influenza. On Sunday 
he was taken to the hospital 
where his condition was not con- 
sidered critical- However, on 
Monday he sank rapidly, expiring 
on Tuesday. 

Mr. Reed for the last twelve 
years has resided in the west and 
was a traveller in the employ of 
the Canadian Fairbanks Morse 
Co. Ltd. for a number of years. 
He worked under the Winnipeg 
Management prior to going over- 
seas with the 10th Canadian 
Field Ambulance, Winnipeg, in 
which force he spent over two 
years in France. Upon his re- 
turn he was placed in the Calgary 
Sales Department covering Al- 
berta territory and was very 
popular ..throughout his sales 

Mr- Reed was a Montreal boy 
by birth and education. He 
took a great interest in sports 
before coming west, and paddled 
for the Chateauguay Boat Club, 
also for The St. Lambert Club. 
He was also a football player and 
belonged to the Wanderer Hoc- 
key Club. Besides athletics he 
spent a number of years with 
the Third Victoria Rifles and 
was a sergeant under Brigadier- 
General E. W. Wilson. 

The deceased was only thirty- 
six years of age- He started his 
career with the hardware firm 
of Caverhill Learmont & Co. 
where he spent most of his early 
life learning the hardware bus- 
iness. Before leaving Montreal 
he was in employ of the W. H. 
C. Mussen Co. Ltd. He leaves 
a widowed mother, two sisters 
and a host of friends in the three 
western provinces- He was a 
member of the North West Corh- 
mercial Travellers' Association, 
and was buried in Montreal on 
Monday, February the 6th. 

Tit for Tat 

"What's this?" said John Smith, 
as he came upon his wife's new 
sewing machine knee deep in a 
snow drift. 

"Oh, I just put it out there to 
keep your mower company," re- 
plied his wife. 

It has been said that ignorance 
is bliss but that does not apply to 
the implement business.

Early Tractor Owners Still Use 
Mechanical Power. 

Of more than 1,200 farmers in 
the northern great plains states 
v.-ho purchased tractors four or 
more years ago, 81 per cent, still 
use their first machines, or others 
which they have since purchased. 
Nearly half of those who have 
bought their second machines 
have changed their opinions as to 
the best size for their purposes, 
as indicated by the sizes of the 
machines purchased. The men 
who had sold their first machines 
had kept them for an average per- 
iod of a little more than three 
vears, and sold them for an aver- 
age of $490, approximately half 
■the first cost. 

These facts Avere brought out 
by replies to several thousand 
letters sent out by the U.S. Bur- 
eau of Public Roads to tractor 

A summarv of the replies from 
1,219 men who are still operating 
the same farms or similar farms 
in the same locality showed that 
in 1920 — 

534, or 44 per cent, still owned 
their first machines and used 
them for field work; 

446, or 37 per cent., had re- 
placed their old tractors with new 
ones which Avere used for' field 
work ; and 

239, or 19 per cent., did not use 
tractors for field Avork. Seventy- 
one of the 239 still used their old 
tractors for belt work. 

About one half of the machines 
purchased in 1916 and 1917, one 
third of those purchased in 1914 
and 1915, and one fourth of those 
purchased in 1913 or earlier, Averc 
still being used for field work. 

At the time of making their 
early reports, 84 per cent, of these 
men believed their tractors Avould 
■'be profitable investments. Eighty 
two per cent of those Avho used 
their first machines for field work 
in 1920 still considered that they 
were profitable, and 83 per cent, 
stated that thev intended to buy 
others when the ones they were 
using Avore out. Sixtv per cent, 
of those who have sold their first 
tractors have purchased others. 
'J"he men Avho had purchased new 
tractors had OAvned them about 
1 Yo y :ars, on the average, and es- 
timated that they would give 
about 5^2 more years of satisfac- 
tory service. • Eighty-nine per 
cent, believed that the ncAV trac- 
tors Avould be profitable. 

What the Dealer has Learned 

The past year has taught the 
implement dealers many things, 
but especially that the implement 
business is going to be done more 
on a merchandising basis in the 
future than ever before. 

He will cease to act as a store- 
house, but will carry a stock of 
goods that he knows is stand- 
ard, and that will sell, and he will 

see to it that he carries but little 
goods from one season to an- 
other, and the farmer is going to 
find that put too, so that he will 
not rely on the dealer having 
just what he wants at the last 
minute, but will let his dealer 
know in time to supply his wants, 
Avhich will put the business of 
all kinds on a. much safer, saner 
basis than ever before. 

Rules of Conduct for the Dealer 

At the 18th annual convention 
of the Minnesota Implement 
Dealers Association, held in 
Minneapolis recently, T. J. Tur- 
ley, ex-president of the National 
Federation, and a dealer of 22 
years experience, gave the follow- 
ing rules AA'hich he believed would 
benefit the implement dealer to- 

Don't go into the implement 
business unless you feel you are 
fitted for it. 

When you get into it make it 
your real business and stay with 
Select a good line of imple- 
ments that you know to be abso- 
kttely all right, backed by rea- 
--^onable manufacturers, who will 
L'.ive you proper treatment. Re- 
member, there are a great many 
dififerent ones whom you can go 
to Avho render the right treat- 

Sell your goods on the right 
basis, Remembfr your oA^erhead 

is always first to be considered, 
and you are entitled to a reason- 
able profit over and above that. 

Don't let any implements go 
out of your store unless they 
are settled for, either by cash or 
a good note. 

See that your goods are prop- 
erly set up, and if they go into the 
hands of parties who are not 
thoroughly acquainted with the 
work which they are made to do, 
see that the buyers are properly 
instructed, even if it takes a trip 
to the farm to do it. Remember, 
a satisfied customer will give you 
more business than any other one 

Use the same diligence in the 
collection of your notes as the 
bank does wh^n it holds one 
against you. 

Keep enough money in your 
bank to discount your bills. 

Always be at the front door, or 
near it, to give every customer 
the "glad hand" when he comes 
in, and the same applies Avhen he 
goes out. 

Make it a rule to attend your 
annual association conventions 
and keep your local alive, Be 
the leader in your community in 
all uplifting work. Do your duty 
to your church, always consider- 
ate to your family and your 
friends ; and I guarantee if you 
live up to these ten rules your 
business not only will be profit- 
able, but a pleasure. 

Local Advertising Pays 

Regular and consistent adver- 
tising in their local papers is a 
wise policy on the part of imple- 
ment dealers. It is as essential 
as the service the dealer renders 
his community.' Dealers selling 
a line that is well knoAvn and 
advertised find it ' desirable to 
identify their name with the 
product and thus supply the last 
link necessary to tie them up Avith 
the campaigns waged by the man- 
ufacturer. The manufacturer can 
tell the good qualities of his 
goods, Avhat he is doing to make 
them desirable, and can in many 
cases create a desire to buy on 
the part of the reader of the farm 
paper or magazine, but he cannot 
tell the farmer where to go. This 
he cannot do, and the dealer Avho 
believes in advertising and en- 
deavors to make it help support 
and push his business sees the 
short cut to more business in 
using a part of his advertising 
appropriation to tell his customers 
in the local ncAVspapers that the 
machines and other farm equip- 
ment they have been reading 
about can be seen at his establish- 

The Manufacturers' Problem 

In connection with the tradi- 
tional system of farm implement 
distribution, the problem of the 
manufacturer is simply as fol- 
lows : 

In A'ieAv of improved facilities 
of transportation and reversal of 
nearly all of the old-time condi- 
tion in the farm market, can he 
abandon the old weight of factory 
sales effort and rely on a well- 
financed, well-equipped, experi- 
enced and progressive dealer, 
centrally located, to draw custom 
from a wider territory to give 
service and to produce a greater 
volume of sales than he could 
produce by scatt^ering agencies 
at every cross-roads, and sending 
men to camp with them to in- 
struct, persuade, expert, collect, 
and canvass for them. Because 
if he can, he can remove expense 
from cost at a surprising rate. 

The Matter Of Freight 

The average farm machinery 
dealer, like all of us, expects 
freight reductions. In this con- 
nection, figures demonstrate that 
concentration of freight reduction 
on farmer's products as opposed 
to general freight reductions on 
all articles, result in a material 
increase in the farmer's buying 
pOAver especially in western ter- 

For instance, in the U. S., in 
the single transaction of buying 

February, 1922 

Canadian Farm Implements 


a plow in Nebraska, a flat re- 
duction of 10% on the freight on 
the plow and on the freight on 
the corn necessary to pay for it, 
increases the farmer's buying 
power $37.37, while a reduction 
of 20% concentrated on the corn 
alone increases his buying power 
on the transaction $65.72. 

In other words, if we are right 
in saying that our real problem 
is to restore the farmer's buying 
power, we see by a homely ex- 
ample on our own door-step that 
the way to do it is to concentrate 
every cent of freight reduction on 
farmer's produce.

Winnipeg Wholesale Trade Met 

Would Boycott Implement Men 

At the recent convention of 
the Saskatchewan Grain Grow- 
ers' Association, one of the re- 
solutions, emana'ting from dis- 
trict No. 9, suggests a complete 
boycott of implement manufac- 
turers. The resolution calls up- 
on the co-operation of farmers 
who are on the market now for 
new machinery to avoid purchas- 
ing same until the price bears 
some semblance of relation- 
ship 'to the selling price of farm 

On January 34, the Winnipeg 
Wholesale Implement Associa- 
tion held their regular monthly 
meeting in the St Charles Hotel, 
Pres. J. P. Minhinnick, Cock- 
shutt Plow Co., in the chair. The 
minutes of the last meeting were 
read and adopted. 

Mr. Curie, of the Retail Mer- 
chants Association, was present 
with Mr. Donovan, of Brown 
Bros., Portage la Prairie. Mr. 
Donovan introduced the question 
of a change in the Manitoba 
Implement Act compelling the 
implement dealer to take a lien 
note on machinery, 'so that lit 
Avould be opional with the deal- 
er to have the lien clause in- 
serted in the contract and to take 
a straight note in settlement, 
which would faciHtate their bank- 
ing arrangements, the bank ob- 
jecting to lien notes. 

This is not a matter of vital 
interest to the wholesalers, but on 
motion it was referred to a com- 
mitte to interview a solicitor 
and see if any change could be 

made, though it was the general 
opinion that it would be imposs- 
ible to effect a change. 

The Secretary, Mr. Hamilton, 
then brought up the question of 
the inferior grades of lubricating 
oil sold; to farmers by irrespon- 
sililc oil dealers. He said that 
there would be a meeting of the 
oil dealers in the near future to 
consider this matter. There was 
some discussion along this line, 
and on motion of S. B. Blackball, 
Secy-Treas. of Canadian Farm 
Implements, seconded by J. H. 
Redden, the association heartily 
indorsed any method that may be 
agreed upon by the oil men to 
make it impossible for irrespon- 
sible concerns to; come into the 
country and sell inferior grades 
of lubricating and cylinder oils as 
they have been doing in the past. 
The motion was caryed unani- 

At the next regular meeting of 
the association a moving picture 
display and sales talk will be 
given illustrating methods or 

The Dealer Who Sells 
Implements with 
Good Reputation 

THE implement dealer who handles a large, well 
known line enjoys a profit and satisfaction from his 
business which comes to him without expense or effort. 
His sales problems are greatly simplified by the estab- 
lished good will of the house he represents. 

For 70 years the enviable E-B reputation has been steadily 
growing through constant manufacturing success in the States. 

Twenty-two years ago the E-B Line was introduced into Western Canada where the 
"Emerson" Foot Lift Plow and "Standard" Wide Cut Mower, as well as other machines 
were readily accepted as leaders. 

Today Canadian farmers as well as those who use E-B implements in the States do not 
have to be convinced of the quality of these time-tested machines. They know from 
experience the satisfaction that E-B machines give. 

Whether it is on a plow or tractor, a grain binder or a thresher, the E-B trade mark means 
a dependable tool bearing the full guarantee of the maker. When seen on a dealer's store 
it is a reliable guide to good service and fair dealing. 

E-B prices have been materially reduced - in fact to a point where it is more profitable for 
a farmer to buy new machines than repair old ones. Write now for prices and terms.

its extraordinary popularity by 
sheer quality of work done, by 
I the fact that it is so much of 
H a mechanical success that it is

It is the ideal 3-plow tractor— the handiest size (after all sizes have been 
tried) for either the small or the big farm. 

Remember, however, that the right tractor without the right plow is equal 
to the square peg in the round 
hole. The John Deere No. 5 3- 
furrow plow hitched to this en- 
gine completes a "compact in 
field husbandry" that is beyond 
criticism in these days. It is a 
case of perfect adjustment, per- 
fect adaptability on the part of

Is the best guarantee the fanner can get from any method of seeding that 
the planted seed will not be blown away. Press wheels following the 
discs, pack the soil firmly over and aroimd the seed. A Van Brunt Low 
Down Press Drill is a distinct insurance against soil-drifting. It also 
means that the condition in which it leaves the soil favors rapid germina- 
tion — the plants following being strong and drought-resisting. 
Let us tell you all about the special features of this drill— its adjust- 
able force-feed, the feature that compels even seeding over the entire 
field without wasting seed. 

In fact get our whole literature on seeding equipment. The Van Brunt 
Grain Drill family has added 
greatly to the income of the John

Their story is one of a seties of 
unbroken success and every new

the perfect satisfaction they are 
giving the farming public. 

The time is ripe now for spring arrangements. Don't delay one day in giving effect to your 

plans for a record Season in 1922.

At the recent meeting of the 
Illinois Implement Dealers' As- 
sociation, all the delegatesl ex- 
pressed dissatisfaction with the 
present condition of the twine 
business. They condemned the 
practicje of, some companies 'in 
selling co-operative agents the 
same kind of twine as marketed 
through dealers, one dealer stat- 
ing that he bought twine from a 
co-operative elevator cheaper than 
he could buy it from the manu- 
facturer. Opinions expressed 
were that if co-operative agents 
wish to handle binder twine they 
should make arrangements to 
take care of all farmers rather 
than to merely take the cream of 
the business and leave the "skim- 
med milk" to the dealers; they 
should be willing to take care of 
the small farmer as well as the 
big one.

were first introduced to the trac- 
tor industry and to the farmer 
only six months ago. 

In place of the one type Model 
"F" there are now three, any one 
of them being quickly convert- 
ible from any other by the sub- 
stitution of a few parts. These 
changes have been kept so simple 
that they can be made by the 
owner right on his farm iln a

expense for the additional parts.

WINDSOR Tractor Ever Built. 

(Sales and Import Tax Extra.) 

Cletrac "F" is the tractor which farmers everywhere need— a crawler-type tractor which handles all farm jobs and which 
sells at a remarkably low price. Our new model "F" offers one of the biggest tractor sales opportunities in Canadian history. 
Cletrac "F" weighs only 1820 pounds. It is 83 inches long, 32 inches wide and 50 inches high; but it will plow six to eight 
acres a day, cultivate ten to twenty acres, harrow, haul and do all ordinary belt work. Is it surprising that we have received 
so many enthusiastic letters from dealers who have demonstrated its merits? 

It is built to give trouble-free service. Parts subject to wear are made of chrome steel. Lubrication is automatic. It has no 
grease cups— all working parts are lubricated from crank-case. Its dependable four-cylinder motor bums coal oil (kerosene) 

Cletrac "F" is an epoch-maker. It represents a tremendous advance in tractor building. No other tractor can approach it 
in real value or in convincing exclusive selling features. 

Substantial reductions in Cletrac prices are shown by our new price on Cletrac '•W", which was $1710, and now sells at $1445. 
A similar proportionate reduction is represented in our price of $895 for the Cletrac "F". Both prices are remarkably low. , 

Farmers are now buying again. Make 1922 a big tractor year by

The Railwaj^s of Canada Draw to Your Attention the 



The advance on sleeping and parlor car tickets authorized in 1920 
has been cut in half — the advance made on ordinary fares at that 
time having been completely taken off many months ago. 


The percentage of advance granted to the Railways in 1920 has 
been reduced ten points. In addition to a five point drop at the 
first of the year. 

These changes became effective December 1 st. 

Your cost of Living 

YOUR cost of hving should be directly affected. If it is not 
it is because (1) as the railways have pointed out before, the 
actual money paid for their services is an almost negligible factor, 
in making prices, and because (2) even the huge sum now cut out 
of the railways' revenues and amounting to approximately — 


annually— becomes a very small fraction of a cent when split up 
among the bilhons upon billions of small and large articles which 
constitute the freight traffic of Canada during a year. And because 

(3) the Court which has the power to control railway rates is not 
able to direct who is or is not to get the benefit of reductions. In 
other words, whether these savings in railway charges are passed 
on to you — or whether they are absorbed in marketing, cannot be 
controlled either by the railways or the pubhc. 

BUT this fact remains: a very great sum of money — 
enough to build every year a small city, or a Que- 
bec Bridge, or four hundred and fifty of the newest and 
most powerful locomotives — is now removed from the 
revenues of the Canadian Railways and should be 
reflected, at least to some extent, in the family budgets 
of all Canadians! 

WHETHER your railways can continue to function without 
the revenue thus lost to them, is an experimental problem 
facing the various managements. It depends largely on whether 
traffic keeps up or falls off — and whether costs rise or decline. But 
the managements are attempting the problem cheerfully and with 
determination to keep Canada's railway service the cheapest, mile 
for mile, and among the most efficient in the world! 


I Crawler Drive Developed For 
Fordson Tractors 

'ilic Bates I\[achine & Tractor 
Co., Joliet, 111., makers of the 
Bates Steel Mule, have placed on 
the market a steel crawler drive 
for the Fordson tractor. It is of 
the same general construction as 
the crawlers on the Bates Steel 
mule. The attachment can be put 
on in an hoiu^ without a single 
hole being drilled. 

The drawbar pull of the Ford- 
son is greatly increased on soft 
soil due to the grip of the Crawler 
traction on the ground. The man- 
ufacturers state that on sandy 
soils where the wheel Fordson 
can pull two 14 inch plows with 
difficulty the Bates Steel Craw- 
lers with the Fordson pull three 
plows with comparative ease. 
On plowed ground where the 
wheel Fordson has difficulty pul- 
ling up a slight hill with a single 
8-ft. disc, the Bates Crawlers 
get sufficient traction for the

crawler turning devices, each 
liaving an independent foot lever 
so that either crawler can be 
slowed down or stopped entirely 
for short turning, with the result 
that an inside turning circle of 
2 feet is obtained. This makes 
possible very short turns when 
working on soft ground in and 
around orchard trees. 

Ontario Dealers Met 

The Ontario implement deal- 
ers' .\ssociation held their an- 
nual meeting in Toronto recent- 
ly. The attendance was very poor 
and it is regretted that more of 
the trade did not turn out. A 
proposal to increase 'the annual 
fee from $5 to $10 was discussed 
but it was decided to maintain 
the present fee for another year. 
T. Hall of Hall Bros., St Cath- 
erines, Ont., was re-elected pre- 
sident of the association. 

The officers and directors elect- 
ed was as follows : Llewellyn 

Showing the Adaptation of 

Fordson to allow a tandem disc to . 
be pulled at a lively speed. 

The Steel Crawlers have the 
same high-grade material and 
workmanship as the Bates Steel 
Mule, being made almost entire- 
ly of steel. The crawlers are 8 
inches wide and have grousers 
lj4 inches high, made integral 
with the shoes which are open 
hearth steel. The shoes are con- 
nected with a hardened steel pin 
which works in a hardened steel 
bushing. On the outside of the 
bushing is a hardened steel rol- 
ler which takes the pull of the 
drive sprockets and eliminates 
friction and wear. The sprockets 
are of alloy steel with openings 
between the teeth Avhich permit 
the dirt to fall through, and is a 
patented construction of the Bates 
Steel Mule. These sprockets are 
mounted directly on the rear 
axle shaft. The front idler crawl- 
er wheels are the same as the 
Bates Steel Mule and are carried 
on Hyatt Roller bearings, en- 
tirely inclosed from the dust. 
The tension of the crawlers is 
taken up by coil springs which 
are adjustable. 

The tractpr is fitted, with two

Fordson Prices Reduced 

The Ford tractor works, De- 
troit, Mich., on Jan. 27, announced 
that the prices of the Fordson 
tractor had been reduced to $395. 
This is a cut of $330. The an- 
nouncement of reduction was 
spread broadcast by wireless 

Ford said, in cutting the price 
of tractors nearly 50 per cent., the 
company had taken upon itself 
a gigantic task of reducing 
manufacturing costs but which is 
not greater than the farmei's 
problcni today. 

Many a poor boob has lost out 
for no other reason_ than that he 
wasn't looking ahead.

Union Bank Maintains Strong Position 

57th Annual Statement Reveals Strong Liquid Posi- 
tion, Conservation of Resources and 
Efficient Management. 

The annual report of the Union Bank of Canada covering the year 
ended November 30th, 1921 is the 57th annual report of this widely 
known institution. The past year has been one which has tried the 
strength of our chartered banks in marked degree and it is reassuring 
to see that the Union Bank of Canada has maintained a strong posi- 
tion and at the same time met the legitimate requirements of its clients 
in a satisfactory manner. The 1921 report shows that both the public 
and the shareholders have been well served. 

The extent to which the Bank has participated in the conmiercial 
life of the counl^ry is shown by the amount of curtrent loans and dis- 
counts in Canada which stands at $62,010,000. The confidence which 
the public has in the institution is emphasized by the splendid manner 
in which the deposits placed with the Bank have been kept up under 
untoward conditions. Current accounts as at November 30th, 1921 
totalled $37,313,939, and savings accounts $79,409,815, making total de- 
posits of well over $116,000,000. A noticable feature of the statement 
, is the increase during the year of Dominion and Provincial securities 
held by the Bank. On November 30th, 1920 these securities totalled 
$8,790,636, but this total was increased materially duting the year and 
stood at $15,946,501, indicating that the Bank has done its share iiM 
helping to finance the governmental needs of the country. 

Total assets now amount to $152,625,386, and the percentage of 
readily realizable assets to total liabilities to the public stands at 
53.70%, an exceptionally satisfactory percentage. Profits for the year 
totalled $1,342,389 being equal to 16.79% on paid-up capital. Following 
the conservative policy which has always been displayed by the bank's 
ofScials, the directors have carried forward $541,686 of this year's profits 
into the accounts for 1922. This is the largest amount of undistributed 
profits which has been carried forward in any one year in the history of 
the Bank and is $400,000 greater than the sum carried forward last 

From the foregoing it will be seen that careful management has 
secured for our customers of the Union Bank a maximTxm of service 
with the result that a reasonable profit was earned for the shareholders. 
Having thus passed through a difficult period the public may watch the 
steady growth of the institution with increased confidence. 

A Light- Weight Steam Tractor 
of New Design - 

A machine that attracted a 
great deal of attention at the Nat- 
ional Tractor and Farm Power 
show, held at Minneapolis Feb.6- 
11 was the Bryan lig'ht steam 
tractor, as manufactured by the 
Bryan Harvester Co., Peru, Ind. 

The claim is made by the ma- 
kers that they have achieved de- 
pendability for the reason of the 
few parts embodied by their trac- 
tor, which is operated by high 
pressure sulper-heated s'team.They 

acity for three 14-inch plows the 
Bryan has a variable speed up to 
5 miles per hour. As in all steam 
engines the Bryan develops its 
maximum power at low speed. 
It is claimed that i't shows great 
economy in operation, due to 
the complete combustion of low 
grade fuel and the small quanity 
of lubricating oil required.

a water tube type and is not a

Special ^Announcement 

BATES STEEL CRAWLERS now available for Fordson Tractors. Roller 
Bearing Steel Crawlers built and guaranteed by the same people 
who make the famous "Bates Steel Mule". Every dealer can double 
his sales and triple his profits if he can get this contract this season. 

The Bates Steel Crawlers get the power to the Fordson draw-bar with- 
out losing it in slippage under the drive wheels and make a gain of 
from IS^o to 60% in pull over wheels on soft ground. 

These Bates Steel Crawlers give the Tractor the ability to work on 
plowed ground, sand, swamp, hard turf or soft mud practically as easily 
and as surely as the ordinary wheel tractor works on sod ground. 

The Bates Steel Crawlers can be attached to a Fordson Tractor right 
on the farm in about two hours time. No holes to drill, no parts to 

make, simply take off the wheels and slip 
on the Crawlers and you are ready to go. 

Becausehecanbuy itfor only $295 and then 
do twice as much work in the same length 
of time, every present Fordson owner 
is a quick prospect for these Crawlers. 

The Bates Machine &c Tractor Co. have 
been builders of Crawler Tractors for 
over eight years and now are one of the 
largest manufacturers of Crawler Tractors 
in the world. 

The dealer commission is large and the 
profits big. But not all dealers can have 
this opportunity because of the large 
number of applicants for territory. The 
dealers who get invitations to sell these 
Crawlers are now being selected as fast 
as we can accommodate them.

which has been closed down 
since November 24th for repairs 
and inventory, is gradually taking 
on men again. 

The Hart-Parr organization is 
especially pleased with the fact 
that in addition ito a steady, con-

International Plans For Care Of 
Used Motor Trucks 

The International Harvester 
Co. has completed plans for tak- 
ing care of used trucks coming 
into dealer's hands. All trucks 
of a certain issue, regardless of 
condition, will be given a flat 
trade-in value. In other words, 
every 1919 International Har- 
vester truck of a certain model 
will have the same trade-in value. 

In standardizing the value of 
these used trucks, the owner, the 
dealer and (the company are pro- 
tected to a great extent by the 
periodical inspection of all Inter- 
national vehicles by road engin- 
eers and what amounts ito almost 
enforced servicing of these trucks 
when they are found by ithe in- 
spectoi-s to need repair or adjust- 

The OAvner of the truck is not 
obligated in any way to service 
his truck upon recommendation 
of the company's engineer, but he 
is advised to do so and arguments 
are advanced as to why the work 
should be done. This plan of 
service and inspection will, it is 
claimed, keep International trucks 
near the standard value that will 
be placed upon them. 

Three Tractor Demonstrations 
for Britain 

The British Society of Motor 
Manufacturers and Traders have 
revised their tractor trial plans 
for 1922. Because of the poor 
trade outlook, and with a de- 
sire not to burden tractor and 
implement manufacturers wi'th 
heavy expenses the following ar- 
rangements are announced. 

There will not be a large scale 
demonstration, for it is felt that 
this would subject the entrants 
of implements and tractors to a 
greater expense than trade con- 
ditions justify. It has been de- 
cided, therefore, to hold three 
demonstrations upon a smaller 
scale each to be of two days' 
duration. It is probable that one 
will be held in the West of Eng- 
land, probably at Scale Hayne, 
in February, another in Essex or 
Kent at the latter end of the har- 
vest season, and a third in the 
North, very likely in Yorkshire 
in the autumn.

The Best Drill for the Farmer to Use k 
The Best Drill for the Dealer to Sell 

All other considerations aside, the fdrm implement dealer 
or commission agent measures his profits by the degree of satis- 
faction experienced by his customers, or in plainer language-- if the 
farmer is satisfied the dealer's bank account will show it. 

McGormick and Deering Double Disk, 
Front Seed Delivery grain drills in the hands of 
Canadian Farmers are actually increasing the 
crop yields of the Dominion — adding hundreds 
of dollars to the incomes of individual farmers 
and increasing the business of the many dealers 
who sell these well-known drills. 

Front Seed 
Saves Seed 
and Increases 
Crop Yield 

These statements are not exaggerated- 
They are based on established and unquestion- 
able proof given us by owners. For instance, Mr. D. F. 
Davidson, of Calgary, reports that during 1920 he in- 
creased his wheat yield 1,500 bushels by the use of Deering 
double-disk drills equipped with front seed delivery boots. 
He knows this to be a fact because he was enabled to 
make comparisons between fields seeded with a Deering 
and fields seeded with other types of drills. He says the 
difference was apparent from the start. 

Now, if the Deering and McGormick Drills 
are good for the farmer to use, they are good 
for the dealer to sell. It is not hard to get business on a 
well-known and well-liked line. You can talk fnmt 
seed delivery and make sales on that feature alone 
because every statement you make will be the truth. 
Front seed delivery boots increase the crop yield and 
you can prove it. That is the kind of talk the farmer 
likes to hear and the kind that will move him to action 

If you will handle the McGormick or Deering Drill 
in your territory, you will profit — ^we will profit — and the 
farmers who use the drills will profit. Can you beat 
that combination ?

Factors of Case Leadership 

The Case policy of sales promotion for 1922 is based on the experience of over 50 
successful dealers who made money in 1921 selling Case machinery. 

They were successful in a difficult year, so we took the best of their tried ideas and 
methods and combined them in a plan for the use of all Case dealers — a plan that 
will help any dealer who will use it, to get his full share of business in 1922. 
Besides these sales helps. Case dealers have many other advantages. Strong 
influences that are particularly effective at this time will be working for them : 

1. -Reputation. The Company was founded 19 years before 
Abraham Lincoln became President, and has grown in the esteem of 
farmers everywhere because of its honest products and honest dealings. 

2. Quality Product. Case tractors, threshers and power farming 
m*achinery are noted for their superior qualities of design and con- 

3. Extensive Line. A line of power farming machinery suf- 
ficiently extensive to' meet the requirements of every farmer and of 
every condition in your community. 

4. Large Manufacturing Facilities. Unexcelled facilities for 
producing in quantity high grade machinery to sell at volume prices. 

5. Large Sales Organization. A large, well organized and effi- 
cient sales force that will miss no opportunity to assist our dealers 
at any time. 

6. Effective Advertising. Forceful sales messages in leading 
farm journals and other effective advertising to the best farmers in 
every part of the country. 

7. Well organized service facilities that enable our dealers to 
keep Case owners satisfied. 

If you are determined to gain leadership in the power farming machinery business 
in your territory, come in to our organization and take advantage of these oppor- 
tunities now.

Cheapest Power Is 
Easiest to Sell 

Four Vital Factors are necessary in a 
tractor to make cheap power. These are : 

1. Lowest fuel cost. 

2. Lowest repair expense. 

3. Longest life. 

4. Reasonable price. 

To combine them has long baffled Trac- 
tor Engineers. But they are now posi- 
tively combined in the OilPuU. This is 
proved by the following records: (1) An 
OilPuU has held ail official National Fuel 
Economy records for 10 years. (2) Ex- 
haustive investigations indicate that 
OilPuU yearly upkeep is only 50% of 
the national yearly average found by 
Government Experts. (3) The average 
life among OilPulls is 10 years and more. 
(4)OilPull prices are always reasonable. 

These records are due to high-grade con- 
struction, oversize parts and especially 
to Triple Heat Control — a perfected 
oil-burning system which finally solves 
the problem of getting the power out 
of cheap kerosene. 

The final result is that the OilPull— 
with lowest fuel cost, lowest upkeep 
expense, longest life and a reasonable 
price, provides the cheapest power. 

Triple Heat Control is being widely- 
advertised. Farmers in your section 
as well as others will want to know 
about it. Write for our booklet which 
describes the system.

Profit by Handling a Line of Dairy Equipment 

While many farm products 
have fallen greatly in price, with 
a consequent effect upon the 
trade done in territories where 
only grain growing obtains, it is 
important for the dealer to recol- 
lect that dairy products maintain 
a good price— also that the mixed 
farming area and the dairy farm- 
er are good assets for the man 
who sells farm equipment. 

arators and milkers Do not 
imagine that sales can be made 
only to men who do not own sep- 
arators. Search for the farmers 
who bought cheap, inefficient 
machines and show them the ad- 
vantage of owning real cream 
separators instead of outfits that 
rob the dairyman of a part of his 
profits. . ;_J 

Silo Sales 

Most farmers have come to the 
conclusion that dairying offers 
great oportunities for financial 
gain. They also see that in dairy- 
ing loss must be avoided by us- 
ing the most modern equipment 
they can have so as to save labor 
which means making money. 
Many dealers do not seem to figure 
that dairy equipment has possibil- 
ities. They are still obsessed by 
power farming tools — the trac- 
tor and the thresher — the lines 
that most directly are in demand 
for handling large grain acreage. 

There are few lines better ito 
handle than dairy equipment. No 
man should neglect the sale of 
milking machines and cream sep- 
arators, water systems and barn 
equipment. Such lines can be 
pushed to advantage every month 
in the year. They have no dead 
season. Now is the time that 
dealers should arrange to dis- 
play and demonstrate cream sep- 

Harmonize with Dairy Equipment. 

A good cream separator will 
skim within ithree tenths of one 
per cent, of the butterfat. Many 
machines will skim to one-tenth 
of one per cent, if handled pro- 
perly. The experience of a dealer 
in Manitoba is not without inter- 
est as showing how sales can be 
developed. This dealer told us 
the following story : 

Showing Him the Loss 

"About a year ago I located a 
farmer who is using an old sep- 
arator. It was a fairly good 
machine when new, but after its 
several years' of steady use wasn't 
skimming as close as the modern 
machines I sell. The farmer 
milked five cows, averaging close 
to 120 pounds of milk the year 
around. Tests showed his skim 
milk contained six-tenths of one 
per cent, of buitterfat. He w^as 
losing at least three-tenths of one 
per cent of fat daily. 

I asked him to look over my 
figures, which showed that one 
per cent, of 120 pounds is 1.2 
pounds. Three per c^nt. of 1.2 
pounds is .36 pounds, or over a 
third of a pound of buitterfat 
daily. Figuring this at a mini- 
mum of only 60 cents per pound, 
as at that time, he was losing 20 
cents a day, which meant a 
weekly loss of $1.40, and an an- 
nual loss of $73, which represents 
the profit from a mighty good 
cow. I informed the farmer he 
could do a lot with the money he 

was allowing to go to waste. He 
could make a good sized payment 
on the best cream separator man- 
ufactured. I sold him a new 
separator without further argu- 

Farmers have learned a costly 
lesson, and aren't so keen to pat- 
ronize mail order firms today as 
they were a few years ago. They 
take an intelligent interest in 
cream separators, and usually 
agree that it isn't logical to ex- 
pect a high grade machine ,to sell 
as cheaply as inferior separators. 

The dealer should try steadily 
to show the farmer that the best 
cream separator is cheapest in the 
end. Ask him if it isn't logical ' 
that a make of separators, which 
are giving satisfactory service in 
every agricultural community in 
the country, must have some- 
thing to recommend them. It 
isn't as easy to manufacture a 
good cream separator as some 
people are given ito understand. 

The manufacturer of a good 
cream separator has considered 
such problems as are related to 
the separation of butterfat, and 
has perfected his machine until 

Sales Arguments Based on Facts 

Getting cream by gravity is 
about as efficient as threshing 
grain by using a flail. From one- 
third to one-fourth of the cream 
stays in the milk. Sweet skim 
milk fresh from the separator, is 
a great deal better for feeding 
purposes than the sour, strong 
milk which comes from crocks 
and pans. The warm sweet milk 
contains all the life giving and 
bone and muscle-making food el- 
ements contained in the whole 
milk. Calves and pigs thrive on 
it. On the other hand, old sour 
milk from the gravity system is 
the poorest kind of food, regard- 
less of the amount of butterfat it 
contains. The nutritious sugar 
of milk has been changed by the 
action of germs while it was 
standing to lactic acid, which is 
nothing more or less than a form 
of vinegar and, vinegar in large 
quantities is harmful to animals, 
especially so to young calves and 

Warm skim milk fresh from 
the separator has from five to six 
times as much feeding value as 
cold, sour skim milk. This is 

The Milking Machine takes 

they cannot help giving satisfac- 
tion if handled properly. Noithing 
can be slighted in constructing a 
good cream separator. The 
machine must be built with per- 
fect accuracy ; every bearing must 
be properly proportioned and ex- 
actly fitted to its shaft. The mesh 
of the gears must be perfect, and 
exact to the thousandth part of 
an inch.

of sour skim milk are stunted,

animals given sweet skim milk 
from a separator are thrifty and 

Milking Machines Wear Well 

The dealer can start out to sell 
milking machines encouraged by 
the knowledge that the experi-

mental stage of mechanical milk- 
ers is passed. The mechanical 
milker is wholly a utility ma- 
chine. B}' eliminating ordinary 
drudgery ojf the ,most irksome 
kind, it pays for itself in the sav- 
ing of help in the dairy barn. 
Farmers are induced to invest in 
mechanical milkers for several 
reasons, the more important be- 
ing the scarcity of hired men who 
are willing and able to milk 
cows, and the diffictdty in dis- 
tributing work on the farm even- 

The operation of the milker is 
not difficult. Fitting the teat cups 
to the cow and keeping" close 
watch to see that the teats and 
udder are in normal condition are 
important points when operating 
a machine milker. The cups 
should fit the teats so they will 
get a straight and proper grip, 
and the pulsation of the machine 
should be regulated to suit the 
individual cows in the herd. The 
operator should adjust the ma- 
chine to give the proper length of 
squeeze and length of release in 
order to make it do good work 
without annoying the cow. A 
short, quick pulsation is not suit- 
able for a cow with long teats, 
especially when the cow is a hard 

The cows' udders should be 
washed, and the teats moistened 
before milking begins. Should a 
cow have any kind of udder 
trouble, it is advisable to milk 
her by hand until she is cured. 
Cleanliness Essential 

Teat cups should be cleaned 
and sterilized after each milking. 
When properly cared for (the teat 
cups are not any more frequent 
distributors of bacteria than a 
milker's hands. Filthy, germ- 
laden teat cups will set up infec- 
tion in some form, and the use 
of unsterilized teat cups is ceritain 
to eventually result in disaster. 

Dirt, rust, violent jarring, filthy 
teat cups and unsanitary tubes 
will have an unfavorable efifecit 
oti the milking machine and re- 
sult in dissatisfaction on the own- 
er's part. This is whv dealers 
must educate customers regard- 
ing the details of successful 
machine milking. 

Dealers who sell machine milk- 
ers must be prepared to answer 
various kinds of information. Get 
farmers in the habit of depeifding' 
upon your asistance, then you 
can successfully push the sale of 
milking machines.

Massey-Harris Harvester Co.'s 
branch at Kansas City recently

the company at Toronto. 

Tractor Companies Announce 
Substantial Reductions 

Several of the leading tractor 
and (threshing concerns operating 
in the Canadian West have lower- 
ed their prices riecently. Follow- 
ing are some of the firms and the 
prices of their machines at date : 
J. I. Case Threshing Machine 

The Case 10-18 h. p. tractor 
has been reduced to a price of 
$825 f. o. b., Winnipeg. At this 
price the customer: is given as a 
bonus, a two-or three-bottom 
Grand Detour engine plow, or if 
this is not desired, the choice of 
an 8-foot tractor disc or a 10-inch 
silo filler. The Case 15-27 h. p. 
tractor is now priced at $1590 f. 
o. b. Winnipeg, with free of 
charge, a three-furrow plow or 
the same value in a disc harrow. 
In 1920 the 10-18 was $1310, and 
the 15-27 $2030. 
Advance-Rumely Thresher Co. 

The Advance-Rumely Thresher 
Co., Winnipeg announce adjust- 
ments in the price of their Oil- 
Pull tracitors as follows : The 
price of the 12-20 h. p., on terms,

h. p. is $4740. 

Alterations (are also reported 
on the price of .r\dvance-Rumely 
threshers. The 22x36 with high 
weigher is $1415; v/ith low 
weigher $1402.50. The following 
price for the. threshers refer to

$2047 and $2030; the 32x52 is 
$2112 and S2095 ; the 36x60 is 
$2222 and $2205. The prices 
quoted are all f. o. b. Winnipeg, 
on terms. 

Minneapolis • Steel & M'achinery 

The Minneapolis Steel & Ma- 
chinery Co., Winnipeg, distribu- 
tors of Twin City tractors recent- 
ly issued their new prices for the 
season. The following quota- 
tions are f. o. b. Winnipeg. The 
12-20 h. p. Twin City is now 
$1595; the 16-30 h. p. is $2400; 
the 20-35 h. p. is $3650 and the 
40-65 h. p. is $5900. 

New prices are also given on 
Twin City all-steel threshers. 
The 22x42 is $1850; the 28x48 is 
$2100, and the 32x52 is $2750. 
Gray Tractors Lower in Price 

A. Prugh, manager of the Gray 
Tractor Co. of Canada, Ltd., 
Winnipeg, announces that they 
have reduced the price of Jthe 
Gray 18-36 h. p. tractor by five 
hundred dollars. The new price 

of $1850, f. o. b. Winnipeg is the 
lowest at which the Gray tractor 
has ever been sold. This offer 
became effective on March 6th 
and will be in force until May 

In 1920 the Gray tractor sold 
for $2785, and in 1921 for $2350. 
The company state in their an- 
nouncement that this is an excep- 
ional offer in view of the quality 
construction of their machines. 
Waterloo Boy Tractors Show 
Reduction in Price 

The John Deere Plow Co., 
Winnipeg announce that they 
have lowered the price of the 
Waterloo Boy tractor from $1375 
cash f. o. b. Winnipeg, to $775.00 
f. o. b. Winnipeg. 

This applies to the model N, 
12-25 h p. which has several im- 
provements over the 1921 models. 
The company state that ithis 
sweeping reduction in the price 
of their tractor makes it possible 
and profitable for every farmer 
to own one. In addition tO' lower- 
ing the price of their tractor the 
John Deere Plow Co. have 
lowered the price of a 
John Deere No. 5 three-bottom 
gang plow, power lift and with 
quick detachable shares, to 
$173.25. This plow sold last 
year for a cash price of $298.00. 
This gives the farmer a three 
plow tractor with a plow com- 
plete for $948.25. 

The W^aterloo Boy, says the 
manufacturers, is a sturdy and 
strong machine that will pull a 
three-furrow 14 inch plow in 
ordinary soil and will do real 
plowing at a speed of or 3 
m. p. h. It has power to run a 
fully ec^uipped 24-inch thresher 
and to operate a large silo or 
feed grinder. Using" kerosene, 
the Waterloo Boy is said to be 
very economical in operation and 
it uses but V2 gallon of lubricat- 
ing oil a day. With 85 years of 
plow manufacturing experience 
behind them the John Deere 
plows are known as a standard of 
quality. The new pride offers 
Deere dealers a sales opportunity 
Avhich should prove profitable. 

Avery Tractors Reduced in 

The Canadian Avery Company, 
repont a reduction in the price of 
their tractors for the 1922 season. 
This reduction averages 33 1|3 
per cent, below the 1921 prices. 
We give below the present price 
of the Avery line f. o. b. Winni- 
peg. Slightly higher prices are 
quoted for the line f. o. b. the 
company's branches at Regina 
and Edmonton. In connection 
with the prices given, attractive 
terms are offered the trade. The 
prices at Winnipeg for the vari-

ager of the company at Winni- 
peg, states that the Avery line of 
threshers will average about 25 
per cent below 1921 prices. 

Winnipeg Wholesale Association 


The Winnipeg Wholesale Im- 
plement Assodiatipn held itheir 
regular monthly meeting on Feb. 
28th, with J. P. Minhinnick, 
manager Cockshutt Plow Co., 
president of the association, in 
the chair. 

A good attendance of the trade 
were present. M. J. Carruthers

Committee of the provincial legis- 

J. Redden,, manager of the J. 
I. Case T. M. Co. took up the 
matter of approaching the express 
companies in regard to having 
them enforce the repayment of 
express charges on second hand 
machine parts returned the com- 
panies by farmers. Such parts 
may be held to be defective by 
the farmer, Avho ships them back 
collect. In many cases this 
charge is not justifiable, and it 
meant a heavy outlay for the trac- 
tor and thresher concerns in the 
course of a year. In the case of 
dealers, the company could charge 
back such charges, but not in the 
case of the farmer who returns 
the part direct to the branch 

It was finally decided that a- 
committee be appointed to ap- 
proach 'the express companies so 
as to have them alter their class- 
ification so that all second hand 
parts, castings and "equipment, 
such as magnetos sent in for over-

7B% Gain in Business 
From One-Half Our Dealers 

Since September 1st, when reduced prices were announced, our business 
has shown an increase over last year of from 50 to 100 per cent, depending 
upon the territory. 

Our business is fine; but the surprising part is the fact that this increase 
is coming from practically one-half our agents. One - half our agents are working 
hard, and as a result are greatly increasing their separator and milker business. 
These are facts, not theory. 

The other half of our agents are still hibernating, or are congealed in frozen 
credits which they are waiting for the sun of some possible 1923 prosperity to melt 

If all our agents were out working hard om business might easily be from 
100 to 200 per cent ahead of a year ago — with a corresponding increase in 
commissions to our agents which such business would bring. 

There is the best reason in the world why our business should be gooa 
Dairy farming was relatively never more profitable than it has been the past 
year and is right now. 

Butter could go down to 22 cents a pound and still be more profitable than 
corn or oats at present prices. 

During 1921 the average price of butter was 49% above the average of the 
five pre-war years, while corn and oats were 11% below that period; hogs were 
11% above and beef cattle 7% above. 

That's the reason why our business is good and why every agent who is 
working hard is getting his share. 

To which class do you belong— the working or the hibernating?

In issuing their prices the com- 
pany says : "The twine prices 
just quoted are the lowesit for 
some years and are lower than are 
warranted by raw fibre costs. As 
a matter of fact the fibre market 
shows a distinct trend upward, 
which if maintained will necessi- 
tate higher prices for twine."

producers. The Minnesota State 
prices quoted is Sisal at 8}i cents, 
Standard at 8% cents, 600 ft. 
Manila at 11 cents and 650 ft. 
Manila at 12 cents. In the United 
States the large producers quoite 
10 cents for 500 ft. Sisal and Stan- 
dard, 11 cents for Manila and 12 
cents for 600 ft. Manila. Superior 
Maila, 650 ft. is quoted at 12>^ 
cents and pure Manila, 650 ft. at 
13 cents. The new prices of 
the large factories represent re- 
ductions ranging from 20 to 33 
1|3 per cent below 1921 quota- 

Commenting on the new twine 
prices. Farm Implement News, 
Chicago, states: "The peak price 
or sisal, reached in 1918, was 23)4 
cents in the U. S. The new price 
therefore represents a decline 
from the top of 13^ cents per 
pound, or aproximately 57 per 
cent. The average prices of sisal 
during the year immediately pre- 
ceeding the world war, 1913, was 
91/2 cents per pound. The prices 
now offered are practically the 
same as the average of prices for 
ithe past twenty-five years. 

"For the first time in many 
years there is a true relation be- 
tween the prices of sisal, stan- 
dard, standard manila, manila 
and pure manila. In other words, 
the prices per foot of these grades 
are exactly the same. 

"The 1922 prices were issued 
four weeks earlier in the year 
than the prices of 1921, and about 
two weeks earlier than has been 
custo'mary in the ^ast decade. 
The prices are lower than were 
expected by those who are fami- 
liar with all of the condiitions af- 
fecting prices. It is evident that 
the producers have decided to 
take a big loss on the twine car- 
ried over, for the price is now on 
the basis of the curren,t price of 

"With a reasonable margin ad- 
ded by the dealer, the retail price 
will be so low as to warrant the 
hope that co-operative buying 
will lose much of its attractive- 
ness to the farmer. Men who 
have been active in promoting 
co-operative buying in recent 
years will not give up without a 
struggle, but it is not illogical to 
assume that they will find it im- 
possible to retain all of their sup- 

"The conditions call for quick 
action on the part of the leaders 
in putting their twine proposition 
up to their farmers. The sooner 
they act the greater chance rt:hey 
will have of abating the co-oera- 
tive-buying fever. 

"Manufacturers who are really 
desirous that the twine trade 
should be confined to the dealer 
channel can help by refusing ito 
accept orders from groups . 

Lawyers and Judges Puzzled at 
Provisions of Implement Act 

In delivering judgment recent- 
ly in the case of the Canadian 
Avery Co. vs. Crozier, Mr. Jus- 
tice Gait paid a very telling 
(tribute to the complex provisions 
of the Implement Act. He admit- 
ted that the Act cast upon the 
dealer the necessity of explain- 
ing provisions that neither law- 
yers nor judges could readily 
understand. His Lordship in 
giving decision in favor of the 
Canadian Avery Co. said : 

"It is not for me, perhaps, to 
criticize provisions which the 
legislature has enacted for parties 
dealing in implements, but iit does 
seem strange such an amount of 
verbiage should be considered 
necesary to effectuate the respec- 
tive rights of parties to such a 
simple transaction. Section 15 of 

ithe act provides that: 'Before 
the contract is signed by the pur- 
chaser it shall be read over and 
explained to him, in a language 
which he understands, and in any 
action theron the burden of prov- 
ing the said contract was so read 
over and explained shall be upon 
the vendor.' 

"This provision would seem to 
cast upon the vendor of a large 
farm implement the duty of ex- 
plaining provisions which have 
already puzzled both lawyers 
and judges." 

General Motors of Canada Busy 

R. S. |McLaughlin, president 
of General Motors of Canada 
Ltd., Oshawa, Ont., is optimistic 
regarding the outlook in the 
automobile business. He an- 
nounces an increased demand in 
both the domestic and foreign 

market, with the factories at 
Oshawa running to capacity to 
fill orders. The daily output of 
the factories for the past three 
months has been 150 automobiles, 
and for the next few months this 
output will be increased to 175 or 
200 finished cars per day. 

The cars being turned out are 
McLaughlin, Chevrolet, Olds- 
mobile and Oakland, while the 
extensive plants lat Wakerville 
are busy turning out motors, 
axles, transmissions, etc. The 
payroll of General Motors of Can- 
ada Ltd. for the month ending 
Feb. 15, was at the rate of $446,- 
000 per month — showing the 
strides the institution has made. 
Few parts for their products are 
brought in from the United States, 
organizations of farmers."

Higher Farm Prices Mean 
More Twin City Sales 

Twin City 12-20 with 16-vaIve 
(va)ve-in-head) engine. High- 
grade alloy steels. Surplus power 
with light weight and low fuel 
cost. Other Twin City sizes are 
the 20-35 and the 40-65- 

Prices of farm products are rising. The farmer 
is getting more money. That means he is going 
to invest in machines that will give him the long- 
est and most satisfactory service — that he will 
buy hy quality and not by price. 

This gives the dealer who handles the TWIN 
CITY hne the advantage that means more sales, 
for TWIN CITY machines have always been 
sold on quality basis. 

The TWIN CITY 12-20 Tractor is a business 
builder. Its surplus of power, low fuel cost and 
dependability of performance are features that 
farmers are demanding.

Competition — of a Kind 

Today the dealer has some price 
competition of a kind that appears 
at first sight formidable, especial- 
ly when the farmer appears arm- 
ed with a page advertisement 
from some farm paper showing 
the prices quoted by the farm ma- 
chinery department of a farmers' 
co-operative sales organization. 

Such lines as plows, fanning 
mills and engines are listed at 
prices less than 50 per cent, be- 
low current quotations in cases. 
They make a sad comparison for 
the dealer, with the best figure on 
similar lines he can quote. Un- 
fortunately he is not in a position 
to throw away goods — so he 
simply tells the farmer that such 
prices cannot continue indefinite- 
ly, looks skyward and murmurs : 
"How long, O Lord". 

The executive of the 'farmers' 
sales organization made the 
statement that they would put 
prices back to 1915 levels. If 
that means setting '"them; some 
leagues below cost, it is so. The 
ultimate idea is doubtless to show 
the poor agriculturist that he is 
still being victimized by those 
profiteers, the implement in- 

Still, the implement industry 
hopes to continue in the imple- 
ment business this year and next 
year. They have no .side issue 
which will help absorb losses but 
must foot the bill on the profit 
made, however meagre. No state- 
ments from factories show that 
this industry have been making 
fortunes. It is an easy matter to 
sell a fanning mill for away be- 
low cost. It is magnificent; but 
It can hardly be good business. 

If, like our old friend Ikey Isen- 
baum, this is a "sacrifice" sale — 
all well and good. If it is the 
last throes of a department which 
rumor alleges has not been 
operated at a profit — all well and 
good. The implement dealer will 
simply wait until the stock is 
sold out The farm machinery 
warehouse and showrooms of the 
department in Winnipeg have been 
sold; the repairs have been mov- 
ed to another Avarehouse. Is this 
the end of the proof positive that 
the farmers' organization could 
sell goods cheaper than manufac- 
turers with efficient factories, big 
output and wide-spread sales 
organizations? They can — they 
are doing it — if that be proof. 

The average firm in the farm 
machinery business must sell its 
goods at a price that at least al- 
lows a margin of profit, or must 
cease to operate. No concern 
can sell goods at less than cost 
for an indefinite period — even 
though they may be able to ab-

sorb heavy losses by revenue 
made in other departments. It 
is stated on good authority that 
this is a cleaning up of the stock, 
and it is alleged that the sale of 
farm equipment by the co-opera- 
tive interests will be discontinued. 

Whethei: the prices quoted will 
purchase allegiance from the 
'farmer we do not know. It is 
easy to' slash a price, but the 
very devil if stocks be cleaned out 
at a cut price and a firm has to 
go on the market today and buy 
fresh stocks at present replace- 
ment values. We simply ask if 
the farm machinery department 
of the co-operationists has shown 
a yearly profit since its inception, 
and has the sale of implements 
by the farmers' organizations 
been a success or the reverse? 
The prices quoted today are no 
criterion of present implement 
values. They cannot be main- 
tained without a drastic loss 
which no organization, if sensible, 
would consider. The dealers of 
Western Canada will only h(Jpe 
that is the closing chorus of the 
comic opera. 

was in spite of the fact that dur- 
ing the last six months of 1921 
manufacturers and dealers in the 
U. S. were selling implements at 
prices far below what they should, 
based on present cost of produc- 
tion, and on longer terms than 

During the five years ending 
Dec. 31, 1920, the total amount 
of implements sold to farmers in 
the United States was only 78 
per cent of the total implements 
sold to farmers during the five 
years ending Dec. 31, 1915. 

Profit and Turnover 

Volume Lower in U. S. 

During the year that ended 
December 31, last the total 
amount of implements sold to 
farmers in the U. S. was only 30 
per cent of the average annual 
sales for the past five years, This 

Profit increases with the num- 
ber of turnovers. If the profit 
on each 'turnover is five per cent, 
and there are four turnovers in 
any .given period, the profit on 
the stock investment is twenty 
per cent. ; and if the number of 
turnovers is doubldd the profit 
will be doubled. 

The fundamental principle of 
the turnover is — rnot to overbuy. 
But 'there are frequent violations 
of this principle even among 
comparatively progressive mer- 
chants. Additions to cash dis- 
count or attractive price conces- 
sions often induce the purchase 
of more goods than can be sold 
within a reasonable turnover 

Pippins fall for the guys who 
go after them. 

Let Your Territory Know It 

A study of the weeklies pub- 
lished in the towns throughout 
the Canadian West shows that in 
too many cases the implement 
and tractor dealer is not taking 
advantage of the local papers as 
they might. At this season every 
dealer who has a paper reaching 
the 'farmers cJf his icommunity 
should be carrying advertising 
space. He should tell his story 
week after week; should adver- 
tise his seasonable tools; should 
educaite the farmer to the econ- 
omic yalue of up-tof-datq ")farm 
equiprnent. Advertising is spend- 
ing money to make money, and 
the rates charged by your local 
paper are so reasonable that you 
cannot afiford not to carry space 

You do not need to use ithe 
ready-made solid ads. that you 
can 'get from the wholesalers or 
manufacturers unless you .wish 
to. There may be some particular 
way of giving copy a local touch 
that will prove effective. Get in- 
dividual electros of the implement 
or machines, and write your 
own copy. Make it have a 
"home" appeal, a local interest. 
Describe what John Jones, who 
bought one of your tractors, did 
last year. Give his opinion. Re- 
fer the prospect to John. Ask 
them to come in and see your 
lighting plant, your latest line of 
plows, your new seeder. Make 
your ads newsy, and out of the 

Work up in a series of ads an 
imaginary conversation between 
two farmers, one well equipped 
and one without modern imple- 
ments. You can make a mighty 
readable story that you can jam 
full of facts on the money saving 
value of good tools. If possible 
use cuts that show the machines 
in operation. 

And while you advertise, do 
not neglect your prospect list.- 
Have it working overtime. 
Coupled wifth your advertising, 
circularizing your trade will 
prove mighty effective. Brighten 
up the old store and rearrange 
your stock. Emphasise repair 
service. Get out and visit the 
farmers and line up what they 
need in the way of new (tools. 

Don't get the idea that sales 
cannot be made. Last week in 
Winnipeg a farmer was leaving 
the offices of a firm when a dray 
pulled up with (the first shipment 
of a new lighting plant from the 
freight sheds. That farmer 
bought one of the plants in five 
minutes. That is an absolute 

There is only one way in which 
business will improve for you

Canadian Farm Implements 

and that is in getting out after 
it. The easy days are long past. 
A man has to get after every pos- 
sibility, to develop a demand, and 
to stalk the prospect until he gets 
the order. Salesmanship is need- 
ed, and the retail dealer must be 
first, last and all the time, a sales- 

Before we forget : — As well as 
having the local Editor help you 
with suggestions about the lay- 
out of your ads., give him little 
news items from time to time. 

Make him use little local pars, 
telling about the new line you are 
handling, some details about a 
seasonable machine, news of how 
a farmer bought this or that last 
week. Those brief reading no- 
tices are a good way to keep 
your business before your cus- 
tomers. Lose no legitimate 
means of keeping your stock and 
service before the farmers in your 
community. It pays, and pays 
handsomely in added volume.

John Deere 
No. 40 

For Use With 

Ford son Tractor 

With self-adjusting hitch and rolling landside (original and exclusive fea- 
tures) the John Deere No. 40 Plow is particularly adapted for the Fordson 
Tractor. It was designed with this special purpose in view. The hitch being 
connected to the depth lever, automatically raises and lowers to the proper 
line of draft when the depth of plowing is changed with the lever — Automatic- 
ally the plow maintains the proper line of draft and the bottoms continue to 
run true and level when the depth is varied. 

Beams, braces and ratchets are hot-riveted together giving great strength and 
rigidity. Beams guaranteed not to bend or break. Light-Draft — partly 
due to its lightness of construction and partly to the entire absence of side- 
draft. Power-Lift; — Very powrful and very simple. High-Lift; — Prevents 
the gathering of trash. Levers — One controls the depth and the other levels 
the plow. Wide Track — Will not tip over on hill sides or in turning.

The late Mr. Wedlake was born 
in Brantford in 1856 and educat- 
ed in the public schools. He was 
a self-made man, learning his 
(trade as a moulder in the shop 
of A. Harris & Son. He trans- 
ferred to the Cockshutt Plow 
Company when that concern had 
a force of but 20 men, and was 
headed by Jas. J. Cockshutt, 

Mr. Wedlake rapidly rose to 
the post of foreman, and then 
was made superintendent, which 
position he held for 19 years. His 
next promotion was as assistant 
manager to Mr. Harry Cockshutt. 
President and manager, and in

and Mrs. E. A. Moff, Brantford, 
was married to Miss Marion 
F. Caswell, daughter of the Rev. 
W. B. Caswell, Toronto, on Feb. 
21st. The wedding took place in

The bride formerly resided in 
Winnipeg, as did the bridegroom.

Park Ave. Montreal, was married 
to W. N. Robinson, Winnipeg, 
who is well known to the trade as 
manager of Robinson-Alamo Ltd. 
distributors of lighting plants 
and dairy equipment. The 
ceremony took place in the church 
of the Ascension, and was per- 
formed by the Rev. Canon Flan- 
agan. A large company attended 
the wedding and the reception 
which was held at the holne of 
ithe bride on Park Ave, Mr. and 
Mrs. Robinson made an extpnded 
wedding trip to Qebec and the 
Maritime provices, where they

R. B. Louden, president of th 
Louden Machinery Co., Fairfield 
Iowa, spent some time in Winni- 
peg lately in conference with J 
H. Bluechel, manager of Alberta 
Dairy Supplies, Ltd., Edmonto 

Arrangements were complete 
whereby the Louden Machinery 
Company will close their Win- 
nipeg office and turn over the 
distribution of the Louden line 
in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and 
• Alberta to Alberta Dairy Supplies 
Ltd. The Louden organization 
have a factory and their head of- 
fice for Canada at Guelph, 

Alberta Dairy Supplies. /Ltd. 
have their head office and ware- 
house in Edmonton and have 
opened a branch office at Winni- 
peg so that dealers will have 
prompt supply of the Louden 
line and also of the other lines dis- 
tributed by the company. 

The Louden Machinery Com- 
pany are pioneers in the barn 
eq^uipment business, the company 
being founded in 1866 by Wil- 
liam Louden. He started to man- 
ufacture goods in a small way in 
1867 and was the pioneer in hay 
tools, it being generally conced- 
ed that Mr. Louden has done 
more ithan any other man to 
educate the farmer to the value 
of convenient, economical and 
good barns and barn equipment 
as a means of saving labor. Wil- 
liam Louden is still in active con- 
trol of the business in conjunction 
with his brother. Active in 
mind and body he still continues 
his life work in developing an 
interest in better barns.

A Hart-Parr Dealer has a "Driveaway" — Delivers Nine Hart-Parrs in One Day 

1922^The Year of the "Comeback" 

JANUARY 1st new shipments started from the Hart-Parr factory, additional men 
were put to work because actual orders and shipments of, tractors to Hart-Parr 
dealers demanded it. Every day since has seen an improvement. 

Th|e Hart-Parr organization has kept "on its toes," and many of our dealers 
found business where it was said there wa s none. Where there's business to be had. 
the Hart-Parr dealer will get it because he has a tractor backed by 21 years success- 
ful tractor building experience — about twice as long as any other manufacturer has 
successfully built and marketed tractors. 

The past two years have just been a turn in the road for Hart Parr. There was a 
little slowing up at the curve, but that's passed and there's a long, straight road 
ahead that looks brighter than anything we have seen in our 21 years of tractor 
merchandising experience. Now is the time to get in. 

Hart-Parr co-operation, in sales, service and advertising and the prestige of 
thousands of Hart-Parrs performing in the field today, some of them as old as 19 
years, insure the Hart-Parr dealer's success.

The J. I. Case Threshing Ma- 
chine Co., Racine, Wis. is a con- 
cern that has always been promi- 
nent in all national demonstra- 
tions and shows throughout the 
country. They have specialized 
in constructive educational work, 
as was evidenced by their attrac- 
tive exhibit at the National Trac- 
tor Show, a photograph of which 
we reproduce. Pioneers in the 
production of gas tractors" they 
produced their first internal com- 
bustion tractor as ea'rly as 1892. 
Froin ithis early type has been 
developed the modern Case trac- 
tors which appeared at the big 
national show. Unlike many con- 
cerns, they did not drop the good 
old reliable steam engine for the 
sake of the gas tractor, but have 
still maintained their steam trac- 
tor plant in operation. 

At the 1922 show, the old Eagle 
will exhibit the following:

The Peoria double run feed has 
a large feed wheel ejctending in- 
to the box to assist in agitating 
ithe grain. It permits the feeds 
to be run more slowly, giving the 
grain more time to lodge in the 
feed wheel, which ensures uni- 
formity and less risk of cracking 
the seed.

A«reri| Year" 

It takes two things to get business any 
time. You need them more than ever 
in 1922: 

First, something new to attract 
prospective buyers. 

Second, a line to fit the needs of 
every prospect. 

The Avery Line for 1922 answers both 
these needs of the dealer. It includes 
three entirely new machines — each an 
outstanding leader, machines that will at- 
tract prospects and that mean business 
for every dealer. In addition it gives 
you a complete line of sizes to fit every 
prospect for motor farming, threshing, 
hauling and road-building machinery. 

The Avery Line gives you the chance 
to sell the small and medium-sized 
tractor buyer as well as the man who 
wants a large power outfit. It gives you 
the chance to sell special road-building 
tractors and the Avery "Road-Razer", 
the fastest selling road maintenance 
machine ever built. It gives you the 
chance to sell Motor Cultivators, Speed 
Trucks, Tractor-Drawn machinery for 
every kind of field work and Champion 
"Grain-Saving" Threshers in sizes for 
the individual farmer, farmer companies, 
or the custom thresher. 

1922 will be a year when every 
possible sales opportunity will be needed 
and must be had. Your best oppor- 
tunities are with the line that attracts 
new prospects to you, and enables you 
to fit every prospect's needs when you 
get them. That's the Avery Line—the 
only line that completely covers the sales 
possibilities in the motor power ma- 
chinery line. It enables you to go after 
business with new machines, new fea- 
tures, improved quality, reduced prices 
and a complete line. Write for new an-

Value is the basis on which 
machinery sales for 1922 will be 
made. Farmers, more than ever 
before, will purchase only goods 
they know and have confidence 
in. Advertising creates and su- 
stains good-will and confidence. 

The maunfactures of tractors 
and seeding machinery represent- 
ed on this page are some of The 
Nor' -West Farmer advertisers 
who realize that your efforts to 
turn over their goods must be 
backed up by forceful advertis- 

These advertisements are read 
by 78,000 western farm families 
and are made doubly effective 
by the practical reading matter in 
The Nor'-West Farmer dealing 
with machinery and cultivation 

Sales this spring will depend 
on the value and reputation of the 
machinery offered and co-opera- 
tion between manufacturer and 
dealer. It is surprising how much 
such team work can accomplish 
and it is safe to predict that these 
lines will secure the bulk of the 

We will undertake to supply cuts of 
any of these lines for your local ad- 
vertising but would suggest that the 
quickest and best way to secure them 
is from the manufacturer direct.

The Plow that Made Traditions 

IN Grand Detour shops are skilled 
descendants of workmen who helped 
make the world's earliest steel plows, still 
on the job of making the world's best. 

Back in '37 the first Grand Detours 
were bought. Buying Grand Detours, 
too, has become a family tradition, and 
many of our customers today are even 

greater boosters than their grandsires. 

And away back there the first Grand 
Detour was sold. It brought secure trade 
and satisfaction to the man who sold it. 
Three generations of Grand Detour dealers 
since have found it pays to stick to a plow 
made well by habit and bought again and 
again as a family custom. 

Grand Detour Tractor Plows and Repairs are sold and carried in stock by 
and all branches and all branches

Developing An Increased Demand For Tillage Tools 

Agricultural authorities are un- 
animous in the opinion that 
thorough tillage is most import- 
ant in Wesitem Canada where all 
the available moisture must be 
conserved to assure good crops. 
Deeper plowing and better tillage 
are factors that will do much to 
increase the returns obtainable 
for the farmer, especially at a 
time when grain prices are on the 
decline while operating costs re- 
main high. Increased yields will 
be sought, and to get increased 
yields good tillage is essential. 

In the sale of tillage tools the 
dealer has a wealth of sales argu- 
ment to use quite beyond the 
superior constructional points of 
the harrows, discs and cultivators 
which he may handle. The disc 
harrow, we submit, is one of the 
mosit valuable implements on the 
modern farm. In fact it is indi- 
spensable in the preparation of 
soil for the growth of many crops. 

Take a tandem disc hauled by 
a tractor as an example. A disc 
of this type has weight and does 
good work; when operated once 
over a field it leaves plowed soil 
in garden condition if a two-sec- 
tion harrow is pulled behind it. 
A disc with 8-foot cut, followed 
by a drag harrow 'covering eleven 
feet, will put fall plowed ground 
in good condition for oats in one 
trip, and the drill can start right 
behind the disc. 

Tandem discs are becoming 
very popular, but the horse drawn 
disc is in as good demand as ever 
and should be given first con- 
sideration. Many farmers are still 
using worn-out, obsolete types of 
discs which do not permit effec- 
tive, work. The only kind of 
disc worth using is one of a 
modern type that will put the 
surface of the field in good shape 
regardless of trash, clodsl, ^.etc. 
The adaptability of the disc is 
such ithat the dealer in any ter. 
ritory can sell this useful imple- 
ment. The farmer who grows 
grains is equally a prospect with 
the man who grows fodder corn, 
potatoes, etc. Further the farmer 
who grows alfalfa, clover and 
tame hay crops needs a good disc. 
In British Columbia (territory 
the orchardist requires a disc so he 
can keep the surface between the 

trees in loose condition and free 
from weeds and grass. The disc 
harrow has proven exceptionally 
valuable in the orchard as it par- 
tially does away with the use of 
a plow, making the soil absorb 
moisture and at the same time it 
does not tear the roots. 

In commenting on his pro- 
cedure in developing an increased 
demand for disc harrows, a West- 
ern dealer explained ito the writer 
how he interested farmers in this 
valuable tool. He said : 

"I built my disc harrow bus- 
iness through local advertising, 
personal solicitation and keeping 

evenly and the fermentajtion of 
the soil cannot be managed so as 
to give the growing crop a chance 
to make rapid growth. 

"When crops are sown or plant- 
ed on an upper fine surface, which 
covers a layer of clods, the seed 
may germinate and start quickly ; 
but as soon as the developing 
rooits begin to make their way 
downward in search of food and 
moisture they are hampered by 
the air spaces which prevent the 
necessary contact with the soil 
particles from which food and 
moisture are derived. The free 
circulation of air dries the moist- 

The Disc Harrow is Invaluable for the Orchardist 

after every man who was a pro- 
spect in my territory. I knew that 
one of the most important uses 
of the disc harrow is to cut and 
break up the surface soil into fine 
particles a few days before plow- 
ing is started. This proves of 
greait benefit in preparing the bot- 
tom of the furrow so that capil- 
lary attraction of moisture will be 
readily established with the sub- 
soil. It effectively seals the sur- 
face of the unplowed land so that 
it will keep moist for a longer 

"The disc harrow properly 
prepares the soil to the full depth 
of the furrow, providing discing 
is done before and after plowing. 
If the soil is not thoroughly pre- 
pared to the furrow's full depth, 
moisture will not be properly con- 
trolled, the grougd will not warm 

ure out of the spaces between 
lumps and clods. When I ex- 
plained this matter to farmers, 
they couldn't help seeing the 
necessity of thoroughly discing 
ground both before and after 

"A valuable use for the disc 
harrow is to break down weeds, 
cut up trash and coarse manure, 
and put the soil's surface in shape 
for seeding oats, etc. The disc 
chops up trash ,and greatly re- 
duces its capacity for damaging 
the growing crop." 

It is easy to advance strong 
sales arguments in favor of the 
disc harrow. The more argu- 
ments a dealer can command ithe 
easier he can sell either horse or 
tractor drawn discs. The leading 
sales argument should be based 

on the need of better seed-beds 
for all kinds of crops. 

Regardless of the vitality of 
the seed planted, and the favorable 
weather conditions which may 
prevail, if the crop has not a good 
seed-bed heavy production is im- 
possible. Many disc harrows are 
sold by explaining to farmers that 
in every territory most of the 
land is lessening in fertility. When 
soil was new, and well filled with 
crop growing elements, heavy 
crops were often grown in spite 
of inadequate tillage methods. 
But with time existing conditions 
prove that the only safe rule is 
to adhere to the best tillage pro- 
gram available. The use of a disc 
harrow serves ito keep land in 
shape so growing plants have an 
opportunity to gather food and 
moisture from the soil. An im- 
plement dealer who is anxious to 
introduce better tillage methods 
in his territory can make a good 
start by pushing the sale of disc 

Disc harrows are pretty much 
alike, it may be argued. In fact 
the farmer will insist that one 
disc is 'as goo)d as another — a 
reason he advances for buying 
the jerry-designed mail order type. 
The dealer above mentioned, 
however, has a means of meeting 
such contentions. He went on : 

"I sell a good disc, and I know 
its good points. I go inrto detail 
regarding such important parts 
as the frame, disc gang, scrapers, 
bearings, hitch, eveners, etc. I 
am able to show the farmer 
superior features which convince 
him that a better disc cannot be 

"Look at that disc on my floor. 
Take the gangs for example. It 
is the quality of material from 
which the discs are made thart; 
counts. You want discs which 
will hold their edge, and will cut 
trash day after day. Please take 
notice that these disc gangs are 
thoroughly polished and sharpen- 
ed. They are ready for business, 
and will not clog easily. Steel 
gang bolts are used, the nuts be- 
ing held by lock washers which 
eft'ectually prevent their coming 
loose. The improved oscillating 
type scrapers are independently

removable, adjustable'and replace- 

"Then I poinft out the kind of 
beamings used— hard raaple, oil 
soaked, and the long extension oil 
tubes. I continue g'oing over my 
disc, feature after feature, until 
I get that farmer to admit that he 
knew a lo(t more about disc har- 
row construction than he did be- 
fore. He also admits that the 
cheap disc might give cheap 

Double Action Discs 

At the present time the dealer 
should be able ito develop a de- 
mand for double-action discs. 
There are approximately thirty- 
nine thousand tractors used in 
Western Canada, and practically 
every tractor owner can be re- 
garded as a good prospect for a 
double action disc, providing he 
is not already supplied. It has 
been proven repeatedly that for 
engine discing the double-action 
disc is the only logical implement. 
By its use, the land -is disced both 
ways at the same time, the front 
section being on out-throw, ithe 
rear on in-throw. This thorough- 
ly breaks up all clods. Another 
advantage of using a 'double- 
action disc with a tractor, is that 
there is no necessity of driving 
ithe tractor over the field after the 
soil is once disced, because with 
the use of a double-action disc, 
discing is finished with one opera- 

When selling a double-action 
disc for tractors explain that it 
is not a rebuilt horse disc but 
specially designed for tractor use. 
The Sub-Surface Packer 

Too loose soils hinder crop 
.growth and for this reason 
diminish the yield of grain. The 
soil must be compacted. For this 
purpose the best implement is the 
sub-surface packer, which packs 
the lower part of the furrow slice, 
and the ordinary packer which 
packs all of ithe plowed ground, 
firming the surface in particular. 
The value of the sub-surface 
packer is becoming more appreci- 
ated each year. Thousands of 
farmers testify to the beneficial 
results secured through its use. 
Implement dealers will do well to 
specialize upon the sale of equip- 
ment designed for firming ithe soil. 
It isn't surprising that there 
should be a heavy demand for 
tillage implements of this nature ; 
for authorities agree that the farm 
which lacks an implement for firm- 
ing the soil is not fully equipped. 
Pulverizers and Mulchers 

A recent development in cul- 
tivation is the use of packers, 
pulverizers and mulchers. These 
implements are made for use as 
plow attachments, and as horse 
drawn or tractor, drawn tools. 

They may also be arranged in 
gangs to suit conditions. 

There may. be a type in which 
packer wheels, pulverizer wheels 
and subsoilers can be used on the 
same frame, the wheels being 
fitted to meet (the cultivat- 
ing conditions that confront 
the farmer. The use of these 
mulcher packers has increased 
greatly and they have proven their 
value in the way in which they 
have (formed a moisture-conserv- 
ing mulch, and have also prevent- 
ed soil blowing. 

Such implements are more or 
less a development of the old 
roller, which was used for crush- 
ing clods. They not only crush 
the clods effectivelv and make a 

fine seed-bed but they pack the 
soil particles properly so as to 
prevent undue evaporaition of 
moisture. They make a thorough 
seed-bed which gives a ^better- 
chance of rapid and even germina- 
tion of the seed, allowing quicker 
growth and a more profitable crop 
when matured. 

A study of tillage implements 
will help the dealer to develop 
sales in his (tefritory when he 
thought no sales existed. Use 
your prospect list, canvass your 
trade and advertise your line of 
tillage tools, and you will find 
that this -line which is too often 
neglecited, will prove a profitable 
one in many ways. 

Financial Conditions in the Implement Industry 

In many cases the dealer is con- 
fronted by the statement from his 
customers that the implement 
manufacturers have been "mak- 
ing millions." The financial state- 
ments of factories for last year 
show how erroneous in most cases 
this opinion is, and also gives 
some conception of the struggle 
it has been to continue operations. 
The year 1921 was the most diffi- 
cult the implement industry has 
ever encountered, both in the 
United States and Canada. The 
following brief financial state- 
ments from some of the large pro- 
ducers will be of interest to West 
Canadian dealers, and the way in 
which the manufacturers have 
weathered a time of great stress 
should be a source of confidence 
and inspiration to the retail trade. 
Happily the business outlook 
has improved greatly. 
Emerson-Brantingham Implement 

The Emerson Brantingham Im- 
plement Company, Rockford, 111., 
in its financial statement for the 
year ending October 31, 1921, 
shows, after taxes, charges and in- 
ventory adjustment, a net loss of 
$3,308,726. This is compared 
with the surplus shown the pre- 
ceding year of $872,703 ; and a sur- 
plus in 1919 of $1,322,420 and in 
1918 of $1,282,268. 

Deere & Company 

Deere & Co., Moline, III, for 
the year ending Oct. 31, 1921, in 
its annual report shows a loss of 
$2,752,801 as against a net income 
of $4,636,717 for the year. The 
company built up a reserve of 
$9,409,717 during the war years 
of 1919 and 1920 to hold against 
expected inventory losses because 
of falling markets. $6,317,059 has 
already been charged off gainst 
this reserve, this amount repre- 
senting the inventory loss during 
1921. It is stated that sales in 

1921 dropped 63 per cent from

In a year recognized for large 
losses incurred and impaired sur- 
plus accounts, the J. I. Case 
Threshing Machine Co., Racine, 
Wis., by contrast, shows net oper- 
ating profits of $405,914. 

Losses through shrinkage in in- 
ventory values and idle plant ex- 
pense of $3,289,345.72 result in 
a net charge against surplus of 
but $583,431.24, the balance being 
absorbed by the company's adequ- 
ate reserves. It is interesting to 
note that the reserves set up in 
previous years were sufficient to 
cover all losses if so applied. 

Conservative management sets 
. up additionar reserves of $700,000 
for further contingent inventory 
losses against an inventory of 
$14,634,368.42. The inventory 
was reduced during the year by 

The company's sound financial 
position is evidenced by a re- 
duction in notes and accounts pay- 
able of $2,651,470.64. The debt 
at the close of the year is $5,855,- 
000 of bills payable and $601,221,- 
.24 of accounts payable, a total of 
$6,456,221.24. This debt is pro- 
tected by $21,411,013.03 of cur- 
rent assets, the ratio of current 
assets to debt being 331 per cent. 

The surplus remains at $1,621,-

The Hart-Parr Co., Charles 
City, Iowa, recently issued to 
their entire organization of dis- 
tributors and dealers, a copy of 
their financial statement, showing 
their standing at the end of their 

financial year, Nov. 1, 1921. It is 
given in simple and understand- 
able form, as follows. 

Cash in bank, $190,232.23. Certi- 
ficates of deposit and miscellan- 
eous riotea and' accounts (less

This total of $930,806.16 repre- 
sents current assets as separated 
from fixed assets, buildings, etc. 

Against this the company owed 
current merchandise bills andmis-

of $769,970.19. 

Continuing this report says :- 

"In addition to quick assets we 
have a total investment, (less de- 
preciation) in buildings, equip- 
ment and miscellaneous property 
which we term fixed assets of 

"Against these fixed assets we 
have liabilities of $524,597.09. 

These liabilities include reserves 
set up not paid, money owing on 
buildings, which is being paid off 
yearly, none of which is past due, 
and equipment. The net credit 
balance on fixed assets is $802,- 

"This makes a total of net 
assets of $1,572,232.73. 

"Ths amount of money is the 
value of the stockholder's invest- 
ment in the Company after paying 
all obligations. In our assets 
there is no item of good will, pat-

Advance-Rumely Company 

The Advance-Rumely Com- 
pany, LaPorte, Ind., recently 
issued their sixth annual report 
for the year ending December 31, 
last. The report states that despite 
great decrease in volume the com- 
pany were able, by drastic econ- 
omies, to keep operating loss for 
the year within reasonable limits. 
Salaries were reduced and over- 
head expenses cut, but sales and 
factory organizations were main- 
tained so that the sales field and 
production could be maintained. 
Building operations to the value 
of $62,310, as commenced in 1920, 
were completed. Experimental 
work was continued steadily and 
production economies through- 
ly analyzed. 

The company's inventories were 
decreased from $10,489,972 at the 
end of 1920 to $6,937,004 at the 
close of 1921. All machines, re- 
pairs and raw material were car- 
ried in the inventory at the low- 
est justifiable price — cost or mar- 
ket — whichever is lower. 

At the close of 1920 the com-

Why the OilPuU Finds 
a Ready Market 

In the Rumely OilPuU Tractor are many- 
things the farmer wants. Once he knows 
them and reaUzes their importance he is 
not hard to sell. And it is easy to con- 
vince him. Cheapest power is one ^thing 
he wants. He gets it in the Rumely 
OilPull because it combines the Four Vital 
Factors necessary to produce cheapest 
power. These are: (1) Lowest Fuel Cost. 
(2) Lowest Upkeep Expense. (3) Long- 
est Average Life (10 years and more). 

(4) Reasonable First Cost. These records 
are due largely to 

Triple Heat Control

a further Tieavy charge off on 
its inventory of $1,379,197. 

During 1921 the company had 
fair success in its estabhshed pol- 
icy of shortening terms and keep- 
ing its business as nearly as poss- 
ible on a cash basis. In the face 
of the worst year it has experi- 
enced, the customers' notes in- 
creased only $113,499. The de- 
preciation charge of¥ on plants for 
the year was $29,223 in excess of 
the charge off for the preceding 
year. The general statement is as 

The gross profits for operations 
in 1921, $1,353,452.49. To this 
should be added miscellaneous in- 
come, such as interest, bank bal- 
ances, discounts on purchase etc., 
of $270,848.58 giving a total of 
$1,624,301.07. In 1920 the gross 
profits were $4,971,129.62, plus 
miscellaneous additions of $495,- 
299.68, a total for 1930 of $5,466, 

In 1931 the selling, general and 
administrative expenses were $2,- 
080,084, from which the total in- 
come account should be deducted 
leaving a loss of $455,783.81. To 
this must be added debenture and 
other interest amounting to $339,- 
234.35/ giving a net loss from 
op-erations for the year of $685,- 

To Jihis net operating loss is 
added the loss in revaluation of 

inventories, $1,379,197.80, giving 
a total loss for 1931 carried to 
surplus of $1,964,315.86. This 
compares with a profit of $1,377,- 
331.93 in 1930. 

The balance of reserves set up 
at the beginning of 1931 was pre- 
served, total reserves for the 
year being $1,347,969. After the 
burdens of 1931 are charged out, 
and with all reserves intact, the 
Advance-Rumely Company's sur- 
plus stands at $1,679,496 even a 
stronger position than at the close 
of 1930. 

International Harvester Company 

The annual report of the Inter- 
national Harvester Co., for 1931, 
was made public, on March 31st. 
It shows a net profit for the year 
of $4,149,918.80, compared with 
$16,655,300 for 1920. Total sale's 
were $121,215,000, or 54 per cent 
of the total sales for 1920. The 
business done in the United States 
produced no profit, all the pro- 
fits shown being derived from the 
company's foreign trade. In his 
report. President Harold F. Mc- 
Cormick calls 1921 as a year "the 
worst in the history of the agri- 
cultural implement business." 

The total income of the com- 
pany before deducting interest on 
loans, depreciation, and losses on 
receivables was $11,281,367.08 the 

deductions being $7,131,448.38, 
leaving the net profit as above. 
The balance of the company at the 
commencement of 1931 was $68,- 
350,741, and at the ending of the 
year it was reduced to $59,536, 

During the year current liabil- 
ities were reduced from $44,938,- 
000 at the end of 1930 to $37,507,- 
000 on December 31, 1931. Cur- 
rent assets at the close of 1921 
were $179,554,000, compared with 
$303,809,000 at the beginning of 
the year, making the ratio of cur- 
rent assets at the close of 1921 
approximately six to one. All 
loans made from banks during 
1921 were liquidated within the 
year, none being carried over into 

During 1921 the directors re- 
duced the cash dividend rate on 
common stock from 7 per cent to 
5 per cent per annum. Cash div- 
idend payments on preferred and 
common stock in excess of the 
year's earnings reduced the sur- 
plus by $5,178,500. Two stock 
dividends of 2 per cent each were 
paid upon outstanding common 
stock and necessitated the trans- 
fer of $3,645,414 from surplus to 
capital stock. 

Had it not been for a conserva^ 
tive policy of inventory valuation, 
adopted at the beginning of the 
war, the 1931 balance sheet in- 

stead of exhibiting some profit^ 
would show a net loss of more 
than $30,000,000. Anticipating 
the effect of high wartime prices 
and a subsequent inevitable de- 
cline, the Company early adopted 
the policy of valuing the portion 
of the inventory constantly on 
hand, known as the basic inven- 
tory, at pre-war or 1916 prices. In 
this way fluctuations in inven- 
tory values were reflected only iri 
the amount of ^oods and mater^ 
ials carried over in excess of the 
basic inventory. 

At the closing of the year deaU 
ers' and farmers' notes receivable 
amounted to $43,971,711. At the 
close of the season in Caaada, raw 
materials and supplies, work in 
process, finished machines and re- 
pair parts were valued at $6,561,-

The report states that the rap- 
id decline in market values dur- 
ing 1931 of the commodities enter-

price levels that make unnecessary 
the continuation of the "basic"

Every- month of the year 
Selling the 

Auto-Oiled Aermotor 

We believe that more real profit is made from the sale of 
Aermotors th^n any other line of farm equipment. The discount 
to the dealer is liberal and he doesn't have to spend all of his profit 
in running back to make the outfit satisfactory. The Auto-Oiled 
Aermotor, when once properly erected, requires no futher attention 
from the dealer. 

REMEMBER that the Auto- Oiled Aermotor is the genuine 
double- geared, self-oiling windmill, with gears inclosed and running in 
oil. Oil it once a year and it is always oiled. After 7 years of use in 
every part of the world, it has proven its ability to run 2 or 3 years, 
or even longer, with one oiling and without its ever being necessary 
for anyone to go on the tower- 

The Aermotor gives more service, with less attention, than any other piece of machinery 
on the farm. The Aermotor is skillfully designed, well made, and backed by a company 
which has a reputation for doing things right.

per cent. The five year pre-war 
average in the U. S. and Canada 
was 77 per cent and 45 per cent 

During the year two general 
price reductions were made on the 
company's products. Prices are 
now based on replacement cost, 
and are in all cases down to the 
present market level of materials 
and wages. The present wage 
scale of the company is approxi- 
mately 75 per cent over 1915. 

A note of confidence is evident 
in the report. It is pointed out that 
the implement industry is a basic 
one, so that the sale of labor- 
saving farm machinery is assured 
so long as agriculture exists. It 
is felt, however, that the period 
of readjustment will continue 
throughout 1923, and that no 
marked improvement in business 
can be expected during the year. 
Sawyer-Massey Company 

The Sawyer-Massey Co., Ham- 
ilton, Ont., recently issued their 
financial statement for the year 
ending November 30, 1921. The 
report shows a decline in profits, 
which were $133,027 as compared 
with $223,815 in 1920. President 
Harmer states that the reduced 
profits shown are attributable to 
the impairment of the farmers 
purchasing power due to the drop 
in grain values. 

The report states that owing to 
the present unsettled condition 
of the implement business in gen- 
eral, and the recent drastic re- 
duction in tractor prices, the com- 
pany's plant is being operated , 
at about 50 per cent of its capac- 
ity ; their efforts being centered on 
the manufacture of engines and 
road-making machinery, sale of 
which is encouraging. The de- 
mand for their threshers will be 
largely governed b;y 1922 crop 
conditions, according to an east- 
ern report.

R. E. Procter, widely known to 
the northwestern , implement 
trade, has resigned as sales man- 
ager of the N^w Owatonna Mfg. 
Co., of Winona, Minn. . Mr. Proc- 
ter was formerly manager of the 
Nothern Rock Island Plow Co., 
Minneapolis. His present mail- 
ing address is P. O. Box 153, 

L. L. Brockett has resigned his 
position as district manager for 
the Cleveland Tractor Co., at 
Minneapolis. He has been in 
ill health for some time. Mr. 
Brockett, who was formerly with 
the Big Four organization in 
Western Canada, supervised Cle- 
trac business in this territory. He 
'is succeeded by George Neiss. 

For 1921, the sales of the Stude- 
baker Corporation of Canada, 
Ltd., were 64 per cent greater 
than in 1920. This selling record 
was achieved in face of the gen- 
eral adversity in automobile sales, 
which in Canada were less than 
thirty per cent of their volume 
for 1920. 

C. F. Chase, who joined the 
Petrie Mfg. Co., of Milwaukee 
some months ago, has been ap- 
pointed general manager of this 
progressive cream separator con- 
cern. Mr. Chase was formerly 
United States representative of

The Metallic Roofing Co. of

ported 25 percent more orders in 
a thirty day period than at this

Los Angeles Ship Building and 
Dry Dock Corp. at Los Angeles 

The] Whitney Tractor Com- 
pany, Cleveland, Ohio, have re- 
cently made plans to secure suffi- 
cient capital to pay off all out- 
standing indebtedness, and pro- 
vide working capital for the pro-

ancing will be accomplished by 
the sale of five-year notes, secured 
by first mortgage on the property 
and' assets of the company. 

John Watson Manfg. Co., Ayr, 
Ont., now have their plant com- 
pleted and in operation. Their 
old plant was destroyed by fire 
in 1920, but the new buildings 
give them over 25,000 addition 
floor space. In addition the in- 
stallation of new machinery and 
production equipment place the 
company in a better position than 
ever before to manufacture their 
farm machinery hnes. They have 
maintained their trade connec- 
tions all over Canada, and a re- 
stricted output of their lines, 
but are now in a position to take 
care of large volume. 

William C. Durant, president 
of the Durant motors, has ac- 
cepted a contract to build large 
quantities of the four-cylinder, 
five-passenger Star, selling at 
$348. It is believed that this an- 
nouncement means that a group 
of prominent parts manufactures 
have banded together to enter the 
field with an assembled car that 
will compete with the Ford. 

Lower Implement Production 

In the United States during 
1921 sales of implements were 
only about 30 percent of normal 
and from one-third to one-fourth 
of these were repair parts. The 
implement industry during 1921 
sustained a monetary loss equiv- 
alent to one-third of the total 
sales for that period. During the 
past nine months the farm imple- 
ment factories have averaged no 
more than 20 percent of normal 
production. There are about 120,- 
000 employees out of work.

Winnipeg Wholesale Association 
Held Meeting 

The regulai monthly meeting 
of the Winnipeg Wholesale Im- 
plement Association was held on 
April 4, with a good attendance 
of members present. A communi- 
cation was read from the Re- 
gina Wholesale Association en- 
dorsing the action of the Winni- 
peg organization in regard to en- 
deavoring to have machine parts 
returned as defective placed upon 
the prepaid Express lists. The 
matter will be taken up with the 
Association of Express Compan- 

It was decided by the associa- 
tion in view of .present con- 
ditions no donations will be made 
this year to plowing matches, lo- 
cal fairs or similar events to which 
donations have been made in the 
past. In this the Provincial plow- 
ing match and the Provincial Ex- 
hibition are excepted. 

A letter was read from the oil 
companies announcing a reduc- 
tion of onie cent per gallon on 
coal oil and gasoline, and from 
30 per cent to 35 per cent on lub- 
ricating oils for implement and 
tractor use, to farmers only, so as 
to assist the farmer to make full 
use of his equipment under pres- 
ent conditions. The companies 
state that they are making this 
reduction at a positive loss, but 
do so to assist agriculture to 
maintain production by using 
their tractors and farm power ma- 
chinery to the fullest possible ex- 

The. secretary of the United 
Farmers of Alberta forwarded a 
resolution passed by that body 
asking that the implement con- 
cerns change their note forms to 
take settlement in Spring instead 
of at October first, as the farmer 
was forced to sell his grain to 
meet his obligations. A committee 
was appointed to deal with this 

matter, which will also be taken 
up with the Calgary Wholesale 

The Association also approved 
an article for the press which has 
been prepared on the matter of 
the present prices for farm imple- 
ments and machinery. This arti- 
cle, which follows, gives facts 
which should be placed before the 
farmer who claims that prices are 
still too high. 

This article will be sent out to 
every weekly newspaper through- 
out Manitoba, and also to the 
farm press. Copies have been 
sent to the other wholesale im- 
plement associations throughout 
the West who will doubtless issue 
same to the weeklies in their 
individual provinces. 

Dealers throughout the West 
will be well advised to clip out 
this article, which follows, and to 
request the local Editor to use 
same in his paper. The article 
explains the reduction in price and 
should be of assistance to the deal- 
er in meeting the arguments of 
customers that prices are still too 
high. The complete article, as 
issued, is as follows : 


For some time there lias been a feel- 
ing on the part of the farmers that 
implements were being sold at a figure 
that made it almost prohibitive for the 
farmer to purchase. In view of the 
fact that it is impossible for a farmer 
to conduct his farm operations with- 
out farm machinery, this would seem 
to work an unusual hardship upon what 
is coinsideredl by everyone our basic in- 
dustry — namely, Agriculture. 

It is true that the prices oif farm ma- 
chinery, as a whole have not dropped 
quite in proportion to the drop in prices 
of farm products, but in order to under- 
stand the situation more clearly, we 
must not overlook the fact that the 
prices of farm implements did not in- 
crease in the same proportion to the 
prices of farm products. A careful sur- 
vey of the list prices of nine different 
Agricultural Implement concerns doing 
business in Western Canajda and compar- 
ing the 1921 to the 1922 price list shows 
that there has been an average re- 
duction in the price of all farm ma- 

chinery of a little over 24 per cent. In 
a great many cases the rediuction has 
been much more than this. In fact, 
there are some cases where the price 
of a tractor includes a three-bottom 
plow, but we have not taken this into 
consideration as it would not affect the 
average percentage drop to any great 

Under date of March 1, a careful 
survey was made of prices of farm pro- 
duce by the Government of the United 
States, comparing the prices at that date 
with the low point oif 1921. Some very 
iiniteresting figures are revealeldi by this 
report. As the prices of farm produce 
in the United States and Canada have 
a direct relation to each other these 
figures may be taken as indicating re- 
latively what has happened in Canada. 
We find that the following percentages 
of advance have taken place:- Sheep 
124%; Lambs 90%; Hogs 66% Wool 
64%; Barley 57%o; Flax 53%; Poultry 
50%; Cheese 46%; Wheat 40%; Eye 
36%; Oats 32%. 

When we take into consideration these 
advances in the price of farm produce, 
and then consider a decrease of 24% in 
the price of farm implements, we can see 
that the farmer is not in such a bad 
position after all with regard to his 
ability to purchase farm machinery as 
compared with the prices which he now 
receives for his farm produce. 

There is not a question of a doubt 
that the prices of farm machinery have 
reached a low level and if they move 
at all the movement will have to be an 
upwandl one.

shows a deficit of $443,488 on 
their 1981 operations after all 
charges were paid, as compared 
with a credit balance of $595,663 
in 1930. Net profits before charg-

ed to $363,551, as against a divid- 
end requirement on common div- 
idends of $805,000. Actual net 
earnings applicable to the com- 
mon stock outstanding were 
equivalent to 3.15 percent earned, 
a little less than half of that re- 
quired. Gross profits were $3,- 
153,366 against $3,934,041 in 1930. 
Current assets totalled $11,707,-

"Where is the Best 

Garage? ^ 

How often that question is asked when a stranger wants 
to be directed to a RELIABLE Garage to buy a tire. If a 
Garage sells "Gutta Percha" tires, it will be classed as a 
"best" Garage, because

have won and are maintaining a 
reputation for high quality ,long 
mileage and service that places 
them at the top of the list.

The Position of the Local Dealer 

By a Sales Manager 

Never before ii\ the history 
of the implement business of 
Western Canada has the old sa}''- 
ing, "The survival of the fittest," 
been more applicable than at the 
present time. The number of lo- 
cal implement dealers who have 
fallen by the wayside, together 
wth those who may drop out in 
the near future if they continue 
their present methods of doing 
business, will make up a consider- 
able precentage in the aggregate. 

Many dealers feel that they 
have been made the victims of 
circumstances over which they 
have no" control, and for which 
they were in no way responsible. 
In this we think they are wrong. 
In many cases they were primari- 
ly responsible for the "buyer's 
strike." In many cases they over- 
sold the farmer whose buying

power or basis of credit was lim- 
ited. Many agents forced sales 
of inferior goods on farmers, who 
wished to buy the best regardless 
of price, but were pursuaded to 
.buy Avhat the agent recommended 
simply because the inferior arti- 
cle carried a wider margin of pro- 
fit to the dealer. 

What we want particularly now 
is to find out why so many deal- 
ers are trying to shirk the re- 
sponsibility of meeting conditions 
for which they are in part at 
least responsible. Regardless of 
conditions on the farms, there are 
many farmers who are prepared 
to change the methods of farm- 
ing if ofifered a little advice and 
persuasion. The farmer has pro- 
bably awakened to the fact that 
diversified farming is the salva- 
tion of the country, sooner than 
the local dealer, although the 
latter probably is just as vitally 
interested, and maybe more so 
than the farmer. 

The Matter of Settlement 

The genera;l excuse advanced by 
the dealer for not carrying even 
samples of goods for which he has 
made sale contracts, is that he 
has all the money out now that 
he proposes to put out, and that 
unless the farmers pay cash, no 
further sales will be made or fur- 
ther credit gra;nted. Here is an 
example of how far reaching this 
kind of business has become: 

A sales ' representativ|e, while 
at a local agency in Manitoba, 
made the sale of a cream separ- 
ator to a good farmer of the dis- 
trict on the basis of one-fourth 
cash, and balance in payments of 
equal amounts every three months. 
He itook the order to the local

dealer, accompanying the order 
with the farmer's financial report. 
The dealer turned it down stating 
he would prefer to wait until the 
farmer could pay all cash — in 
other words he passed up, first, 
making a fair profit for himself; 
second making a future cash cus- 
tomer of the farmer who wanted 
to go into dairy farming. In ad- 
dition, possibly most of all he 
passed up the efifect that it was 
going to have on this farmer cus- 
tomer .who would conclude that 
he had. better go on as he had 
been going, as he would be unable 
to change his method of farming 
because of lack of cash. 

This, in the face of the fact 
that practically every Company 
•selling farm implements or dairy 
machinery today, are willing to 
assist the agent to finance the 
farmer for 1932, would seem to 
account to a great degree, for the 
dealer's present situation and his 
lack of "morale" in-so-far as new 
business is concerned. 

The Position of the Dealer 

It would seem, from what the 
dealers are repeating in every 
letter, that if their position is 
as bad as, claimed, that ihi making 
future sales, even on ' a credit 
basis, they have everything* to 
gain and nothing to lose. The 
basis of settlement from the farm- 
er can be made the basis of settle- 
ment to the Company from the 
dealer, then why the dealer should 
be satisfied with "no bread in- 
stead of a half loaf" remains a 

The implement and dairy equip- 
ment companies, as a whole, have 
found it necessary to reduce gen- 
eral representation. During the 
past the local dealer has depend- 
ed upon the representative to do 
a considerable amount of his local 
selling. Many dealers have done 
this to such an extent that they 
did not familiarize themselves • 
with the goods they sold, and 
are now at a loss how to intelli- 
gently approach a customer and 
sell him something they have ad- 
vertised as handling for a number 
of years. In other words, if the 
implement dealer of today is go- 
ing to stay in business, he must 
take advantage of every opportun- 
ity in the way of advertising sales

It stands to reason that at times 
like the present, business cannot 
be developed in our agricultural 
areas by a policy of "watchful 
waiting," If the deader iwants 
business he must go after it. Is 
it to be assumed that we have not 
in the West today the type of 
dealer who in past years went out 
and did good business in the face 
of as great difficulties as obtain 
this spring? Surely not. The 
business is there, and the dealer 
who goes after it, and who carries 
on his operations on the proper 
basis, will have no cause for com- 
plaint. Pep, push and perspira- 
tion will do a whole lot to se- 
cure satisfactory volume in the 
retail implement store. 

Brewsaugh Visited Winnipeg 

R. G. Brewsaugh, associate 
sales manager of AUis-Chalmers 
Manfg. £o., Milwaukee, recently 
spent a few days in Winnipeg 
investigating the future outlook 
for tractor trade in the Canadian 
West. Mr. Brewsaugh reports 
a great improvement in condi- 
tions in the United States, 
especially in Texas and Okla- 
homa. He anticipates that as 
the season advances satisfactory 
tractor business will develop. 

The Allis-Chalmers factories 
are operaiting steadily on a re- 
stricted schedule, and have main- 
tained their stocks to meet the 
demand. With their immense 
production facilities they are in a 
position to commence mass pro- 
duction whenever the demand 
necessita'tes an increase in the 
output of their tractors. Mr. 
Brewsaugh is favorably impress- 
ed with the trade possibilities of 
the Wesft. 

Truck Corporation Shows Profit 

The annual report of the Inter- 
national Motor Truck Corp. of 
New York City, for the year 1921, 
was issued recently. In spite of 
a large depreciation on materials, 
the company shows a modest net 
profit on 1921 operations. The 
balance sheet reflects the excellent 
financial condition of the coni- 
pany, with current quick assets of 
$18,53,686.29, and current liabil- 
ities of $1,275,668.04. Cash, notes 
and accounts receivable are $2,- 
264,061.09 in excess of last year, 
and inventories have been reduced 
$5,913,265.07 during the year.

years of growth. 

How do you dealers in power farming machinery measure the value of a 

good name? , „ , ^ u j 

Go back to your first year in business and recall how your customers had 
to be won over to believe in your judgment of machinery; in the surety of your 
remaining in business, and finally to believe in you as a good dealer worthy 

of their patronage. . , ^, 

One of the biggest factors in the buildmg of your business and the pro- 
tection of your good name is the reputation of the product you sell. 

Eighty years ago the founders of this Company started to build threshmg 
machines in a small shop. They were inspired with the ideal of buildmg better 
machines than farmers in those days could obtain elsewhere. 

From this small beginning the J. I. Case Threshing Machine Company has 
grown to be the largest manufacturer of threshing machines m the world. Its 
products are known for their high standard of excellence m practically every 
farming community where modern machinery is used. 

Through all these years of rich and varied experience the ideals to build 
well and serve well have never changed. The steady progress we have made 
has served to increase our faith in the idea that quality should be the first con- 
sideration in a product, and that fairness and honesty should characterize 
every transaction. 

This is our reputation- a reputation we believe can be made to serve you 
in your business.

Developing Spring Business 

Reports from wholesale and dis- 
tributing houses show a distinct 
improvement in demand for trac- 
tors and farm machinery. Es- 
pecially noticeable is the flood of 
enquiries regarding machines and 
prices being received. The inter- 
est is there, and it only remains 
to dev.elop it into sales. 

The farmer has had much to 
say regarding tractor prices, but 
the recent reductions in this 
line should be an inducement that 
will develop tractor business, for 
the economy of tractor farming is 
conceded everywhere. Only the 
other day, at Washington, S. H. 
McCrory, chief of the U. S. Divi- 
sion of agricultural engineering, 
when questioned by members re- 
garding) farm machinery, said: 
"One of the principal advantages 
of the tractor over the horse is 
from the testimony of farmers, 
in the saving of time that it makes 
at critical seasons of the year. 
The information that we have re- 
ceived indicates that in plowing 
and preparing the land for crop 
there seems at present to be 
the greatest field for the tractor." 

Volume in tractor business will 
not continue week after week 
purely on the basis of reduced 
prices. Price is but the controll- 
ing factor, and the number of 
farmers prepared ,to buy at a 
given price are small compared 
with the number who would and 
could buy if properly approached. 

Under present manufacturing 
conditions trajctors are at rock- 
bottom prices, and that fact 
should be kept before every pros- 
pect who for some reason de- 
lays his investment in a tractor. 

Under present conditions sys- 
tematic working of his territory is 
a good policy for the dealer. Too 
often we hear the complaint from 
distributors that dealers seem to 
have lain down on the job — that 
they are not trying to stimulate 
local demand as they might. In 
this issue a sales manager com- 
ments upon this feature, and we 
trust that the majority of dealers 
are demonstrating that if business 
cannot be secured it is not through 
Jack of working their territories 
intensively developing every poss- 
ible sale. The farmer has not 
bought his normal implement re- 
quirements for the past two years, 
and beyond new business there 
is a latent demand for replace- 
ment that exists — if only the cus- 
tomer is shown the futility and 
lack of economy of continuing to 
pse worn-out or obsolete machin- 

t Dealers of long experience have 
proven that the most successful 
way of canvassing business is to

possible. In this connection the 
motor truck is a valuable adjunct 
in the dealers business. Beyond 
this, at this season of the year, 
the dealer should set up ma- 
chines from his new stock, circu- 
larize his prospects, advertise lo- 
cally, and evolve some means of 
regularly bringing' farmers to his 
store. Demonstrations of ma- 
chines are a mighty profitable way 
of discovering something that 
your customers need. At this sea- 
on the dealer can begin lining up 
prospects for cultivator business, 
and even "for hay tools. If you 
can get the farmer into your 
store regularly, good results will 
generally be found to follow, but 
merely by sitting still and wait- 
ing for him to appear, little bus- 
iness is likely to result. 

The times call for strenuous 
effort on the part of dealers, and 
with the improved tone which is 
evident now that spring is with 
us, no opportunity should be over- 
looked to find out what your cus- 
tomers need and to show them 

and sell the goods. 

Action is the great energizer 
in stimulating spring trade. Action 
and activity, plus personal con- 
tact with the farmer, will work ' 
wonders. Because a man has sold 
implements in the same town for 
years is no good reason why he 
should not get out into his ter- 
ritory after business. You may 
feel that your customers know 
you and your store, and that when 

they are ready to buy you'll get 
their business. Are you sure of 
it? They are just as likely to go 
to the other dealer or to patron-- 
ize the man who visits them oc- 
casionally and takes a live interest 
in their farm operations, stock, 
equipment and prospects. In any 
line today, be it selling imple- 
ments or any other class of com- 
modity, volume can only be at- 
tained by consistent effort intelli- 
gently applied, by going after the 
business and not by waiting for 
it to come to your door. 

In the ultimate, if factory and 
branch house men are needed to 

help the dealer close business . 

and many dealers claim they don't 
require them— the added sales ex- 
pense is a factor that will operate 
gainst the granting of better dis- 
counts or commissions to the re- 
tail dealer. 

Use Window Space 

In the retail implement busi 
ness, show windows, when attrac- 
tively trimmed, are the best ad- 
vertisement the dealer can have. 
And if you pay them the attention 
that you do the other branches of 
your business, you certainly are 
irrgood company with these silent 
salesmen that can and will double 
your sales. 

The Swing of The Pendulum 

There is an economic law of 
gravity in regard to business 
which seems to work out fairly 
well. After a period of stagna- 
tion and cessation of buying we 
must see a resumption of demand 
for farm equipment. Reports 
from the factories and whole- 
salers show that business is im- 
proving steadily as evidenced by 
orders and enquiries. The farmer 
has held off buying as long as he. 
could; he has come to the point 
where lack of proper equipment 
will mean loss in carrying on his 
1922 operations. He is ready to 
buy in many cases— und the 
dealer should get busy. 

The recent announcements of 
big cuts in the prices of tractors 
make it evident that many trac- 
tors have reached the lowesit level 
they will probably reach this 
year. The manufacturers claim 
that the prices quoted are by no 
means justified by decreased man- 
ufacturing costs. They are sel- 
ling below cost in an endeavor 
to meet the farmers' needs and to 
stimulate business. The price 
per pound weight of some trac- 
tors today is about on the basis 
of an ordinary stove. The pro- 
ducers ipannot make money/ at 
such prices, but it would appear 
.that they are trying to get vol- 
ume so as to attain quantity pro- 
duction whereby lower -produc- 
tion costs may be had. 

Present prices should tend to 
stimulate the demand. The 
farmer must cut his costs of pro- 
duction, and farming with power 
is the only way to do so. Trac- 
tors and tractor implements show 
declines that should induce the 
farmer to invest in power. 

The Production of Dairy 

The difference between a tight- 
wad and a nut is that you can 
crack a nut and make it shell out. 

The dealer can no longer af- 
ford to overlook the importance 
in his territory of handling the 
most efficient and up to date dairy 
equipment and barn and stable 
equipment. Every line that will 
permit the farmer to produce 
dairy products more cheaply is 
a- line that merits the close at- 
tention of the trade today. 
Whether it is' cream separators, 
milkers, churns, water supply 
systems, litter and feed carriers, 
steel stalls, waterbowls, etc., — 
there directly lies a means of re- 
ducing the production cost of 
dairy products. 

The man who is selling dairy 
products, who has a good herd is 
a better customer for the dealer, 
-and a cash customer. As an ex- 
ample look at eastern Canada or 
anyterritory where mixed farming 
is in vogue. The west has had

lows straight grain production, 
to which in large measure is due 
the lean years we experience 
all to often when low production 
or low prices affects every unit 
in the farm equipment industry. 

Dairy experts calculate that we 
have at hand means to reduce the 
cost of producing dairy products 
20 to 30 per cent. Figures, show 
that a reduction of even 20 per 
cent, in this cost in the .three 
prairie provinces would mean a 
saving of $9,636,000. This sav- 
ing would mean much to agricul- 

The prairie provinces produced 
last year, dairy products to the 
value of fifty-six million dollars. 
The cost of production will con- 
stitute at least eighty-five per 
cent, of this figure which leaves 
a net profit of about eight and a 
half million. An increased net 
profit of over nine and a half mil- 
lion would be realized if the cost 
of production could be reduced 
even twenty per cent. To ex-

A tractor disk which has all 
three levers placed at the extreme 
front section so that these levers 
are easily handled by the tractor 
operator is the latest tractor im- 
plement offered by the Rock

with a second man to aperate the

in time. 

E. A. Mott Promoted 

Brief mention was made in our 
last issue of the promotion of 
E. A. Mott to the important posi- 
tion of first vice-president and" 
general manager of the Cock- 
shutt Plow Company, Brantford, 
Ont. At a meeting of the direc- 
tors on March 8th this appoint- 
ment was made, and G. K. Wed- 
lake appointed second vice-pres. 
and works manager. 

Mr. Mott is o;ie of the leading 
figures in tlie implement business 
in Western Canada, where he 
was formerly western general 
manager of the Cockshutt organ- 
ization, with headquarters at 
Winnipeg. He has been associat- 
ed with the company for: some 
thirty-two years, starting as a 
junior clerk and afterwards as 
salesman. He was transferred to 
the Winnipeg office in 1892 when 
that branch was opened and he 
took over the management of 
this, the first Cockshutt branch 
in the West. He later organized 
the other western branches at 
Regina, Saskatoon, Calgary and 
Edmonton, all of which operated 
under his able supervision. The 
remarkable growth of the coni- 
pany's business in the Canadian 
West was, in large measure, due 
to his administrative ability, 
backed by an able corps of 
branch managers. In 1911 he 
was appointed a director of the 
company, and second vice-pres- 
ident in 1919. He returned to 
the head office at Brantford in 
1920, occupying the position of 
vice-president 'and assistant gen- 
eral manager. In 1921 he was 
appointed treasurer of the com- 
pany. His many friends in the 
trade throughout the West will 
learn with pleasure of his well 
merited promqtion to the import- 
ant position he now occupies. 

A New Australian Tractor 

An Australian inventor has per- 
fected a rein-controlled tractor 
for farm work which is to all in- 
tents and purposes a mechanical 
horse and is driven from the seat 
of the farming implement drawn 
behind. At a recent practical dem- 
onstration given on a farm near 
Melbourne it was shown that the 
tractor, which is of the two- 
wheeled type and weighs lj4 ton, 
could handle a 7-ton load. 

Timken to Open Canadian

The Timken organization now 
have long established and up to 
date plants manufacturing their 
complete bearings at Canton, 
Ohio; Columbus, Ohio; Birming- 
ham, England ; and Paris, France. 
They have their steel and tube 
mills at the home plant at Canton. 
The new location in Canada is 
a strategic distributing point. 

National Farming Machinery Co. 
Close Plant 

The National Farming Ma- 
chinery Co., Montmagny, Que- 
bec, has closed down its extensive 
plants after a period of depres- 
sion in demand for the lines pro- 
duced. This plant did a big bus- 
iness in munitions nnd supplies 
during the war, at one time em- 
ploying 3000 men. Approximate- 
ly $5,000,000 ha.s been invested in 
the enterprise, but it is stated 
that the production of too many 
machine lines was taken on, also 
that too much capital was tied up 
in fixed assets. An Eastern paper 
reported that the plants had been 
purchased by the International 
Harvester Co., but the L'arvester 
organization states that they 
have never considered such a 

New Editor For Harvester 

C. B. Clark has been appointed 
editor of the "Harvester World" 
the house organ lof the Interna- 
tional Harvester Company, Chica- 
go, succeeding G. F. Whitsett, 
who resigned last month. Mr. 
Clark has had seventeen years 
experience with th^ Harvester 
organization mostly with branch 
houses, as cashier, block man, 
advertising man and in various 
other positions. His knowledge 
of both the wholesale and retail 
trade admirably bejfits him for 
editing the house organ of the 
company, which keeps the Inter- 
national dealers, branch houses 
and factory staffs in contact. 

Dairy Farming Profitable 

Year in and year out the dairy 
cow is a sure, safe and profitable 
proposition. The prices of dairy 
products fluctuate, to be sure, 
but not to such extremes as do 
most other farm crops. Those 
men who stick with dairy cows 
over a period of years are bound 
to come out ahead in the end, 
and the best part of all is- that 
their soil is usually as good if 
not better in the end than when 
they started, instead of being ex- 
hausted as so often happens under 
one crop systems. 

Ideas are like rivets; they 
should be driven home and 
clinched while hot.

Canadian Farm Implements 







No dealer needs to be reminded of the abso- 
lute need of this combination to intensive and 
profitable farming and what possibilities there 
are in pushing its sale till every farmer has 
one. It is the biggest factor in feeding the 
depleted soil and in preventing soil drifting. 
One man will easily put on or take off the 
straw-spreading attachment in 30 minutes. The 
beater is driven from, the right hand rear wheel 
by means of sprockets and a heavy chain. A 
compression spring on the mounting arm relieves 
the starting strain and prevents breakage. Wind- 
shields keep the straw from blowing on a 
windy day. 


The Deere-Dain two horse pull-power press 
is an all-steel, continuous travel, full-circle 
press. The plunger makes two strokes to each 
round of the team. Capacity — one-half to one- 
and-a-half tons an hour. Low step-over; not 
over seven inches. The motor Press with Ec- 
centric Gears is a splendid investment for any 
man who bales his own hay and does custom 
work. Made in three sizes with capacity run- 
ning from lYz to 3 tons per hour. It will 
pay you to get special circular and prices of 
these hay presses. 








have taken a big plunge in price, 
but their sterling qualities have 
correspondingly increased. Many 
new improvements both in trac- 
tor and plow which we want you 
to know about. This is the ideal 
combination of power and plow 
that comes in at a price most 
any farmer can entertain, and 
that leaves you a handsome 
margin. You'll find few things in 
1922 more easily handled or more 
worth while when you have sold 
them than a sale of the "Wa- 
terloo Boy" with its own John 
Deere Plow. 

The Right Plow for the 
Right Tractor 


By mounting beater on the axle, clutches, chains, 
stub shafts and other cumbersome adjustments have 
been done away with. The rear wheels play the 
part the horses do on a horse power and the beat- 
er plays the part ot the tumbling rod. Beater runs 
on roller bearings and the driving gears are ex- 
tra strong and well protected by an oil-tight hous- 
ing. Drive wheels are well back out of the way 
and this with exceptionally low box, makes the 
John Deere Spreader very easy to load. Uniform 
spreading — light draft. The rake is operated by the 
load moving towards the beater. It requires no 
driving power and actually lessens draft. 


Its "counting out" method gives the same accura- 
cy as if the kernels were counted and carefully 
planted by hand. Will plant thick or butt kernels 
without losing this high degree of accuracy. No 
springs in valve action. Valves do not scatter or 
clog. Even checking, regardless of team speed. Can 
be instantly changed for planting 2, 3, or 4 kernels 
per hill without stopping team or leaving seat. 


With the CORN CULTIVATOR illustrated below 
the corn crop is an assured success provided the 
seed is of undoubted germinating quality. You can 
use no finer corn crop tool than a John Deere "J. B." 
Cultivator — level lift, single or double row. 

With this fine equipment cultivation can be started 
as soon as the com is up. 



The Famous Kramer Attachment will 
fit any gang or sulky plow and makes 
a perfect job of pulverizing the soil 
immediately behind the plow. It cuts, crushes and lev- 
els the soil without extra labor and better than it can 
be done in any other way or at any other time. Very 
little extra draft to the horses and the saving in 
time and labor is enormous. Get to know all about 
this tool and have one on your floor without delay.

Bearings Service Company Open 
Western Canadian Branch 

The Bearings Service Company, 
Detroit, Mich., have opened a 
Western Canadian branch at 327 
St Mary's Ave., Winnipeg. Their 
branch for Eastern Canada is lo- 
cated at Toronto. W. L. Spain, 
formerly connected vfiih the 
Chevrolet organization, and well 
known to the Western Automobile 
trade, has been appointed branch 
manager, at Winnipeg, where a 
full stock of the bearings handled 
will be carried. 

This new branch of the Bear- 
ings Service organization, dis- 
tributing Timken, Hyatt and New 
Departure anti-friction, bearings, 
will be of the utmost service to 
dealers throughout the Western 
Provinces. These bearings are 
now standard equipment upon 
practically all tractors, cars and 
trucks in operation in the West. 
With 39,000 tractors operating 
west of the Lakes, and over 150,- 
000 cars registered in Manitoba, 
Saskatchewan and Alberta, deal- 
ers now are assured prompt access 
to Timken, Hyatt and New De- 
parture bearings for replacement 
use. Much over-hauling will be 
done this year and the replace- 
ment demand for bearings will be 
far heavier than in 1921. Not 
only for cars and tractors are anti- 
friction bearings required today. 

They have been adapted to the 
construction of binders, mowers, 
threshing machines, disc harrows, 
windmills, etc., as a means of re- 
ducing draft and eliminating the 
problem of friction. 

The Bearings Service company 
acts as the service department 
of the Timken Roller B;earing 
company and the New Departure 
Mfg. company. It was organized 
with the purpose of handling re- 
placements of bearings in any 
type of automotive vehicle equip- 
ped with bearings manufactured 
by any one of these three big 
companies for which it is acting. 
The lines along which it is oper- 
ating are unique in merchandis- 
ing, and the character of its ser- 
vice is best illustrated by the rap- 
id increase of its distributing 

International Speed Trucks 

E. C. Dufify, of the Internation- 
al Harvester truck sales depart- 
ment says that while the truck 
season in Canada is later in open- 
ing up the 1922 prospects for 
truck business in the Dominion 
are, if anything, brighter than in 
the States. Eastern branches of 
the company are especially en- 
ergetic in the sale of the Inter- 
national speed truck, and the 
West is getting into action. 

It is reported by the company 
that several thousand of their 

dealers have already accepted 
the company's special offer to 
share in financing the pur- 
chase of an International speed 
truck. This truck is made up 
specially for the International 
dealer and it should prove a valu- 
able assistant in getting the deal- 
er business throughout his ter- 
ritory. With such a truck the deal- 
er can take machines out through 
his district, visit the prospect 
in his own barnyard and sell him 
the goods. It greatly increases 
the dealer's ability to round-up 
business and give service to 
his customers. 

Burd's Announce New Cycloidal 

The Burd Ring Sales Co., of 
Canada, 322 Mclntyre Blk., Win- 
nipeg, announce the new cycloidal 
quick-seating piston rings. This 
ring is stated to be the result of 
a cycloid pattern shape from 
which the ring casting is made. 
No hammering is necessary — the 
tension results from the shape of 
the pattern and special metal used. 
The tension is said to be cast 
into the metal so that the outer 
edges lap in more quickly and con- 
form more nearly to the contour 
of the cylinder wall, whether used 
in new, reground or old cylinders, 
than any other type going. The 
new rings are made for practically 
every make and model of tractor, 
and truck, car and engine in stand- 
ard sizes and oversizes varying 
from .005 inch to .045 inch over 

Binder Tvsrine Prices Mean Lower 

Farmers who have been hit by 
the decline in the price of farm 
products should have no com- 
plaint at their twine outlay this 
season which will be lower than 
it has been for some years. The 
prices issued by the Brantford 
Cordage Co., Brantford, show a 
decline from 1921 prices averag- 
ing from 30 to 40 per cent, and 
less than half the prices issued 
for twine four years ago. 

It has been pointed out by 
writers in publications devoted 
to the binder twine industry that 
at present cost prices of raw ma- 
terials ,there is not sufficient mar- 
gin to cover manufacturing costs 
and expenses of dstribution. The 
Brantford Cordage Company state 
that at the time prices were an- 
nounced in . March, they had 
purchased raw materials on a 
favorable basis sufficient to cover 
practically their entire season's 
output, and they do not expect 
that it will be necessary for them 
to make any advance in their 
prices this year. 

A Western Breaking Plow 

The Edmonton Iron Works, Ed- 
monton, Alta, report a good de- 
mand for their line of Van Slyke 
breaking plows which have 
proven very successful in west- 
ern territory in meeting the de- 
mand for a strong and powerful 
plow for breaking up land which 
has never been cultivated, virgin 
sod abounding in roots, stumps 
and brush and land too heavy for 
the ordinary plow to handle. 

The Van Slyke is stated by the 
makers to be the only plow of the 
kind on the market which pro- 
duces a flat, unbroken furrow. 
The furrow is cut before it begins 
to lift owing to the flatness of the 
share and moldboard, making easy 
draft. The result in laying a flat 
furrow is assisted by the peculiar 
angle of the coulter as well as 
the action of the side fin cutting 
the roots. The 1922 model of this 
plow, adaptable for horse or trac- 
tor haulage, about 6 feet long and 
of ^ X 3 inch steel set on edge, 
the fin cutter slicing under the 
landside of furrow about 6 inches. 
The wheels are controlled by two 
levers, each independent, so that 
the plow can be set at any angle 
to cut any depth required frorti 
4 to 10 inches. 

When the Van Slyke plow is 
lifted to full height by the levers 
it has a clearance of 6 inches be- 
tween the ground and share 
By setting the carriage an 18 or 
20 inch furrow can be cut at will. 

Tire Business 

It is stated there are 150,000 
automobiles in operation in Man- 
itoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, 
which means that there is a re- 
placement demand for tires that 
is of direct value to some dealers 
in practically every town and vil- 
lage. A large percentage of im- 
plement dealers have car agencies, 
and there is no good reason why 
the implement dealer should not 
carry a line of tires to meet the 
needs of his community. A little 
consideration will enable the deal- 
er to size up the most popular 
type of car in his territory, which 
means the clue to the suitable 
types and sizes of tires he should- 
stock . It is not necessary to 
carry a heavy stock, simply an ade- 
quate supply to meet a reasonable 
demand which can be developed 
by judicious display of the line, 
local advertising and letting the 
community know that you are in 
the tire business. 

Some folks spend so many 
nickles that they never have a

The Motor Truck 
Pays the Dealer 

In connection with calling up- 
on his prospects the implenment 
dealer will find that the modern 
motor truck is a valuable assis- 
tant in more ways than one. It 
enables him to greatly reduce his 
time between visits, while it oi¥ers 
a great opportunity of showing 
the customer seasonable ma- 
chines. In going out through his 
territory the dealer can load up 
his truck with samples, such as 
binder twine, cream separators, 
fanning mills, feed grinders, sta- 
tionary engines, washing ma- 
chines, etc. The advantages of 
showing the customer how the 
machine operates, its construc- 
tional features and efficiency, right 
in his barn or home, is not to 
be overlooked, Many a cream 
separator or washer has been sold 
on the kitchen floor of a farm 
house, and many will yet be sold 
by this method of bringing the 
demonstration to the home of 
the prospect. 

Beyond the fact that the lighter 
lines of equipment can be taken 
over the sales territory, the deal- 
er can load some of his specialty 
lines into the truck and very often 
can develop enough "catch trade" 
to make his trip a profitable one 
from an immediate fina:ncial 

It is assumed that the dealer 
who owns a motor truck will have 
a truck agency. Granted that, the 
fact that he uses his truck when 
canvassing is an excellent means 
of seeking out and developing the 
dormant demand for trucks in his 
sales field. In both town and ter- 
ritory truck prospects may exist, 
and a motor truck is not a thing 
that can be readily sold from an 
illustration and list of specifica- 
tions. His truck is a moving 
advertisement, a ready means of 
giving prompt service, and a mov- 
able demonstration floor for many 
of the lines which the dealer 
handles. In one territory in the 
United States, while a dealer sat 
last fall and wondered where the 
.stove and kitchen range business 
had gone to, ah enterprising sales- 
man was out through his terri- 
tory with samples on a motor 
truck and unloaded forty ranges 
on that dealer's customers. The 
motor truck, wherever used by the 
dealer, has been the greatest help- 
er he can have in giving prompt 
and efficient service — and a ser- 
vice that can be made practically 
self-supporting through the bus- 
iness that can be developed. Every 
time you visit a farmer you have 
an opportunity to make an inven- 
tory of his equipment and to size 
up his present and future require- 
ments. You have first-hand know- 
ledge of his value as a prospect 

for certain lines such as you can 
never get by merely asking him 
reg-arding his equipment when he 
visits your place of business. As 
a helper in connection with his 
business the motor truck is an in- 
vestment that nets the modern 
implement dealer handsome re- 

Weed and Stubble Burners in 

Enquiries from dealers and

exhibiting a live interest in equip-

recent type placed on the market

Win More Medals 

At the Dumfriesshire and Kirk- 
cudbrightshire Plowing Associa- 
tion's Annual International 
Tournament for the Champion- 
ship of Great Britain', held on 
January 7th, 1922, at Dumfries, 
Scotland the Case 10-18 tractor 
was awarded first prize and 
Gold Medal, as well as second 
prize and Silver Medal. There 
were nine other tractors entered 
in the trials. 

The following points were 
taken into consideration by the 
judges: 1. Area to be plowed 
in a given time. 2. Quality of 
work done. 3. Weight of ma- 
chine on land. 4. Men in atten- 
dance (Cost). 5. Fuel consump- 
tion. 6. Oil consumption. 7. 
Ease of transport. 8. Simplicity 
of design and strength. 9. Ac- 
cessibility and facility of repair. 
10. Ease of handling at work 
and on headland. 

That the British farmer is in- 
tensely interested in power farm- 
ing, is shown by the fact that 
there were 1465 persons who paid 
for admittance to the trials. The 
Case Branch at 134 King Street, 
Hammersmith, London, reports 
the demonstration disclosed many 
tractor prospects. 

U. S. Taking Census of Implement 

The census for the year 1921, 
covering the manufacture and 
sale of agricultural implements, 
vehicles and other farm operat- 
ing equipment, will be taken by 
the U. S. Bureau of Census of the 
Department of Commerce. The 
questionnaire submitted to U. S. 
manufacturers calls for the fol- 
lowing information : 

1, number of machines manu- 
factured; 2, total value of pro- 
duction ; 3, number of machines 
sold in the United States; 4, 
value of domestic sales; 5, num- 
ber of machines sold for export; 
6, value of foreign sales. 

Detailed information by styles 
and sizes will be grouped under 
the following general classifica- 
tions : 

1, tractors and tractor engines, 
including steam traction engines ; 
2, plows and listers ; 3, tillage im- 
plements ; 4, planting machinery ; 
5, cultivating machinery; 6, hay 
machinery; 7, harvesting ma- 
chinery; 8, machines for prepar- 
ing crops for market or use; 9, 
horse drawn vehicles, including 
buggies and light spring vehicles ; 
10, all other items.

Hat, Alta. The makers claim 
,that their machine is meeting 
with general favor Avherever it 
is used. 

The Western farmer has for 
many years been asking for a 
machine or instrument which 
would effectively burn weed or 
stubble land and give a good seed 
bed without the need of disturb- 
ing or loosening the soil so that 
it is exposed fto the drying in- 
fluences of the climate. When 
stubble and weeds are burned off 
the weeds from the previous' 
year's germination and growth 
are almost entirely destroyed. 
Cut-worms and other insect pests 
are desitroyed by the burning off 
process in spring, as the eggs 
which lie dormant through the 
winter are burned so that the 
worm cannot develop. 

Further, burning over in early 
spring is stated to conserve the 
moisture as ithe weeds and stub- 
ble, when left standing, reniove 
available moisture by capillary 
action. Soil drifting is also said 
to be prevented by the burning 
off process, and it is claimed that 
a crop seeded immediately on 
burned off soil thait has previous- 
ly been in a good state of cultiva- 
tion invariably gives a better 
yield than any field spring or fall 
plowed. The burning off meth- 

made with the "Flaming Dragon" 
burner, the manufacturers esti- 
- mate that a ton of straw will give 
a flame sheet to (treat four to 
eight acres. Better runs of flame 
-can be had by operating with the 
wind, so that in one test about 
500 lbs. of straw actually burned 
off some 15 acres of weeds. 

The machine is hitched behind 
a wagon or straw rack, the straw 
being fed into a fuel chute. The 
fuel feed is operated from the 
wheels of the burner, feeding in- 
to the firebox, which is 1^x2x6 
feet, of heavy sheet metal. A 
forced draft fan operates from 
the left drive wheel, as the whole 
machine travels on four wheels, 
24x2 in front and 30x2j^ in the 
rear. The fuel is fed into the 
hopper at the end of the ♦fuel 
chute and is carried into the fire- 
box by the feeder forks attached 
to a chain drive. The total 
weight of this interesting machine 
is 925 pounds, for the size that 
will burn off an eleven-foot strip. 

Prison Twine Prices 

The North Dakota state prison 
twine prices for 1922 have been

A Million Prospects Overni 

Our recently announced tractor and twine price reductions, coupled with the remarkable free 
plow offer, good up to May 1st, has uncovered our McCormick-Deering Dealers a 
vast number of live prospects. These can be closed at once if you can 

get to them rapidly. 

Dealer's International Speed Truck 

will help you reach these newly discovered tractor, twine and machine prospects in record time. This 
is an opportunity to secure a high class hauling and delivery unit at an exceptionally low price. The of- 
fer is limited strictly to our dealers and closes in the near future. 

This year tractors and other farm equipment are not go- 
ing to be sold to any extent in the dealer's store. 
Right out on the farm is where most deals will be 
closed and every McCormick-Deering dealer should 
have one of these "Red Service Trucks" to help him 
get the business. 

Attractively painted in red and lettered , with the 
dealer's name and business, it is an outfit that awak- 
ens the buying spirit and stamps the dealer as farm 
machine headquarters in his community. 

Time is a big element and the Red Truck will enable 
the dealer to see more customers and do more busi- 
ness during the Spring rush. Samples of engines, 
cream separators and other farm machines can be 
taken to the farm door in this Red Truck and dem- 
onstrated. It's just like taking your sample room 
to the farmer. Never go out empty. Go out loaded 
every working day. Don't forget this truck is es- 
pecially adapted to carrying twine. Some dealers 
take out twine and make twine sales pay the can- 
vassing expense. 

The Harvester Comany fully realizes that the dealer is the backbone of sales and service in the 
implement business. In 1921 the dealers problems were many, varied and in some cases almost insur- 
mountable. In the last 30 days we have had many indications that the tide has turned — that there 
is acute need for new farm equipment in almost all sections. The dealers who have made an earnest ef- 
fort to get out on the farms and canvass have been -rewarded. The company is doing everything possi- 
ble to assist its dealers, and to bring conditions back to normal.

Kfoyer Motors Move Plant 

Kroyer Motors Company, man- 
ufacturers of the Wizard 4-Pull 
tractor, who formerly had their 
factories at Stockton, Cal., have 
moved their plant to Los Angeles 
Harbor, San Pedro, where they 
will enter production in the wards 
of the Los Angeles Shipbuilding 
and Drydock Corporation. 

The shipbuilding company, lo- 
cated on an excellent harbor, dur- 
ing the war expanded their equip- 
ment so that they had ' capacity 
for building six 11,000-ton steel 
freighters at a time. To do this 
they expanded their machine 
shops in proportion. During the 
war period they built some 35 
steel cargo ships for the U. S. 
Government, employing at one 
time over 13,000 men. 

When the war ceased the lo- 
cal requirements for ship con- 
struction called for only about one- 
third of their plant and, Sihop 
facilities. The company looked 
around for other products to 
handle with their existing ma- 
chine shop equipment. At Stock- 
ton the Kroyer Motors Co. were 
looking for new premises and ar- 
rangements was made for the 
transferance of the tractor plant 
to Los Angeles Harbor.

Inventors and Manufacturers 

Over 35 Years of Success 

man of over 30 years experience, 
who is credited with one of the 
most successful American tractors 
every built — namely the Samson 
tractor — which he later sold out 
to the General Motors Company. 
Mr. Kroyer conceived the idea of 
a four wheel drive tractor having 
shoes on each wheel at such 
angles as would secure the best 
of traction under all soil condi- 
tions ; the shortest known turn- 
ing radius ; the greatest ease of 
operation and the utmost depend- 
ability by a quality of construc- 

parts exposed being the wheels 
and fan. All moving parts run in 
oil and a geared starter is pro- 
vided. Bosch ignition is used and 
Timken bearings are^ standard 
equipment on this tractor. 

Commercial Failure In Canada 

That the rise in the commercial 
mortality during; 1921 was not 
confined to the United States, is 
evidenced by the insolvency re- 
turns for the Dominion of Canada. 
The later record also discloses a 



tion throughout which would in- 
sure exceptionally long service 
with a minimum of repairs. He 
secured basic patents on his 
wheels and after exhaustive tests 
during some two years, com- 
menced the manufacture and sale 
of this tractor which he called 
the Wizard 4-Pull and which is 
not only adapted to general pur- 
poses, but also for road building, 
logging, general industrial use and 
particularly effective for break- 
ing virgin ground. 

It is claimed that the Wizard 
motor, when doing its normal 
work, has 35 per cent of its pow- 
er in reserve for extra heavy duty. 
The parts of the tractor are over- 
size — and the whole design is 
staunch and powerful. No oil or 
grease cups are used — it is auto- 
matically lubricated throughout. 
The working parts of the Wizard 
are absolutely enclosed — the only 

very material increase in both 
number of failures and amount of 
liabilities, the 2,451 defaults of 
the past year involving the un- 
usually heavy indebtedness of 
$73,299,111. The previous largest 
number of insolvencies was in 
1915, when the total was 2,661.

Power Utility of the Lighting 

The time has arrived when deal- 
ers should emphasise the power 
adA'antages of farm home electric- 
al systems. Too much stress has 
been put on the mere lighting 
feature of these plants. By dem- 
onstrating power advantages 
such as the operation of cream 
separators, milking machines, 
washing machines, and other 
operations usually classed as 
farm drudgery, the dealer in 
lighting plants is able to interest 
the entire family in the use of 
electric light and power outfits. 

Sunflowers as Ensilage 

An Albert farmer gives details 
of how he grew sunflowers dur- 
ing 1921. Fourteen acres had 
been sown, seven pounds of seed 
to ithe acre; being used ;(in an 
ordinary machine drill, plugged 
so that the rows were 30 inches 
apart. The cost of the seed was 
$10 for each one hundred pounds. 
When in the fourth leaf there was 
a frost of 4 degrees which did 
not hurt them in the slighest. 
One cultivation was all that ap- 
peared necessary. The crop was 
harvested first week in Sept. 
when from 10 to 14 ft. high and 
about two-ithirds in bloom. A 
corn binder was used and no 
difficulty was experienced except 
in a few places of exceptional 
height. The binder handled up 
to 10 feet nicely. The 14 acres 
produced 214 loads, and with this 
23 large loads of clean oat straw 
was run through the cutting box 
and mixed so as to absorb most 
of the surplus juices. 

Ford Production 

On February 1st, the Ford 
Motor Co. of Canada went on a 
44-hou;r week ait full machine cap- 
acity taking as a scheduled output 
for the month of 400 cars and 
trucks. In February 1921 slightly 
over 3000 cars were manufactured. 
If the present rate of production is 
maintained, the 1921 output of 
42,349 cars from the Canadian 
plant should be exceeded.

The Dealer's Success 
Is Our Success 


HE DEALER is the "backbone" of the tractor industry, 
believe in the dealer. 


Twenty- one years' tractor building experience has taught Hart- Parr 
Company that unless the dealer makes money the factory cannot be 
permanently successful. 

The Hart- Parr contract is extremely liberal, and allows the dealer 
enough territory so that he can get volume of business. 

Solid As a Rock 

Hart- Parr tractors 15 to iq years old, still at work, lend prestige to 
the Hart- Parr dealer. Our long experience enables us to build a 
tractor that pays a maximum profit on the investment both to the 
farmer and the dealer. 

You will always find Hart-Parr Comany and their dealers "top of 
the heap," because the organization is founded on principles solid as 
a rock. 

We have a real proposition for real red-blooded men.

Sales Features in the Storage 

When the car owner buys a 
storag-'e batiterj", while he may 
not be quite clear as to what type 
of battery is going to give him 
greatest satisfaction, what he 
wants is a battery that will give 
him longest possible life for the 
amount invested. On this basis 
the Breen Motor Co., Winnipeg, 
are offering to dealers and car 
owners the Philadelphia Diamond 
Grid Storage Battery, which is 
made in several types to fit any 
make of car. ' This battery is 
built up on three basic, patented 
features, found only in this make. 

The Breen Motor Co. state 
that the Diamond Grid plate is 
stronger than the ordinary plate, 
and for this reason gives great 
resistance to internal sitrain and 
exceptionally long service. The 
quarter-sawed hardwood separa- 
tor, another feature of this bat- 
tery, is so cut that it leaves aliter-

nate strips of resinous and porous 
wood in between each plate. The 
resinous wood will not decay, 
and will last as long as the plates 
themselves, while the porous 
strips allow perfect circulation of 
the electrolyte. In the Phila- 
delphia Diamond Grid Battery 
another constructional feature is 
the Philco retainer — a slotted 
sheet of hard rubber placed on 
both sides of the positive plates, 
preventing the active material 
from shedding off the plajtes. This 
greatly lengthens the life of the 
battery, and is a patented feature 
of the Philadelphia line. 

Plates and separators are the 
vitally important things in a 
storage battery, and the Breen 
Motor Co. state that during the 
past six years their experience 
with the Phidadelphia Storage 
Battery is such that they con- 
sider it the highest grade battery 
on the market today. The com-

A Self-Oiling Windmill 

The Aermotor Company, Chica- 
go, have been manufacturing 
their line of windmills for more 
than a quarter of a century, and 
have steadily aimed at the pro- 
duction of a mill .that would run 
in the ligh|f est winds." They have 
developed and are now selling 
their new auto-oiled Aermotor, a 
windmill in which every working 
part is constantly and completely 

The gears of this mill are en- 
closed in a case and run in oil. 
The case is stated to hold enough 
oil to keep every bearing flooded 
with oil for a year or more. The 
oil is kept in circulation by the 
gears and flows through every 
bearing in a steady stream so 
long as the wind wheel revolves. 
The work of pumping is equall}"- 
divided between the two pairs of 
gears, which are cut with maithe- 
maticai accuracy. The -shaft of 
one gear goes into the sleeve of 
the other so that the load is per- 
fectly balanced. V Each gear is 

stated to take its exact half of the 

The main shaft has three bab- 
bitt metal bearings of ample 
design, all of which are flooded 
with oil so that friction and wear 
are almost entirely elimijnated. 
A galvanized steel helmet covers 
the gear case and makes it rain 
and dust-proof. The manufac- 
turers say that two quarts of oil 
will keep every bearing and the 
gears of the Aermotor flooded 
with oil for a year or over. 

It is stated by the Aermotor 
Co. that their 8-foot mill is large 
enough for pumping from an 
ordinary well to supply household 
purposes, and to water 150 to 
200 head of stock. With deep 
wells where much water is need- 
ed for irrigation or ranches and 
a more powerful mill is needed 
they supply their mills in 10, 12, 
14 or 16-fooit sizes. For their 
product the company claim that 
the Aermotor is the lightest run- 
ning mill on the market. Four- 
post towers, strongly braced and 
girted every six fee,t,.are supplied 
in 33, 40, 47, 53, 60, 67, 73, and 
80 feet heigjits and stub towers 
of various heights are made. The 
company issue complete descrip- 
tive literature of their auto-oiled 
Aermotor, which «can be had by 
interested dealers on request. 
They are open to consider dis- 
tributing arrangements for their 
line in Western Canadian terri- 
tory. In addition to windmills 
they manufacture storage tanks, 
itank towers, stock tanks, pumps, 
cylinders, woodsaws, and gaso- 
line pumping engines.

been reduced by 33 per cent. 
Plows and plow parts have fallen 
10 to 15 per cent. Cultivators 
and harrows are down 10 per cent, 
from 1921 quotaitions. The price 
of binder twine to the farmer 

in Great Bi-itain has been set at 
$344 per long ton, or say 15 1/3 
cents per pound. The new prices 
remain in force until next October. 

According to the "Implement 
and Machinery Review", the im- 
mediate requirements of British 
users of tractors is in the direc- 
tion of types possessing g'rea- 
ter simplicity. Our contemporary 
condemns the present tendency 
towards cheap productions, and 
states that (the British farmer 
must be prepared to pay for 
quality construction and depend- 
ability. According to this trade 
authority, in Britain the manu- 
facturers of farm equipment show 
no tendency to extend production 
— and are employing their time 
in concentrating upon new and 

improved designs. Manufacturers 
are passing onto the purchaser 
all reductions made possible by 
lower overhead charges and drops 
in material and labor values. 
A few of the price comparisns 
for 1921-22 are given herein. 

The Exchange Value of Tractors 

The Haft-Parr Co., Charles 
City, Iowa, recently published an 
interesting chart showing the cost 
of a Hart-Parr "30" tractor in 
terms of its exchange value for 
farm crops in 1922 as compared 
with 1913. 

On the basis of value of early 
every staple crop in the United 
States and Canada the tractor is 
cheaper today than it was before 

the war. To have bought the 
tractor in 1913 would have requir- 
ed 2072 bu. of corn in 1913 and 
2029 of 1921 corn. With other 
farm production the comparison 
is as follows: Wheat, 1423 bu. 
in 1913, 800 in 1921; oats, 3453 
and 3174 bu. ; barley, 2103 and 
1900 bu. ; rye, 2033 and 918.5 bu. ; 
hay, 82 and 53.5 T. ; cotton, 20.5 
and 16.7 bales ; hogs, 78.5 and 81 
200-ft). animals ; cattle, 16,238 and 
15,909 ft. ; potatoes, 2023 and 825 
bu. ; rice, 32,134 and 33,900 fts. ; 
butter, 4281 and 3169 fts.; eggs, 
178 and 133 cases. 

They tell us not to strike a man 
when he's down, but sometimes a 
good, swift kick, properly placed, 
is a god-send.

A New Type of Tractor Wheel 

The Traction Wheel Corpora- 
tion of America, 82 Wall Street, 
New York, was recently organiz- 
ed to manufacture and sell the 
Coe Tractor Wheel. J. C. Trues- 
dell is vice president and general 
manager of the company. The 
design of this wheel, which is 
shown on this page shows a type 
of wheel which seems to be able 
(to develop traction without the 
weight ratio heretofore consider- 
ed necessary. 

Under certain soil conditions 
lugs fill up until traction becomes 
a matter of the coefficient of 
sliding friction, and this depends 
upon the weight borne by the 
wheels. As will be seen the Coe 
wheel is of open type, lattice de- 
sign, and is claimed to be self 
cleaning. It is simple, light, 
strong and should be cheaply 
manufactured. This wheel would 
seem to solve the problem of posi- 
tive traction in many ways, and 
it is claimed to meet the require- 
ments of every locality whatever 
the soil conditions. It has been 
tested in every v.ariety of condi- 
tions from Western Canada to 
the south of Forida. 

Instead of depending on grous- 
ers, lugs or spikes to obtain trac- 
tion the Coe wheel sinks into the 
soil ito sufficient depth to prevent 
slippage and side slip. It can be 
driven over highways without 
injtjry to the road. Its- design 
permits easy adaptability to 
varying conditions : sharp spade 
lugs for hard baked ground, cross 
lugs for sand, caulks for ice, extra 

width for swamp work, and 
wherever there is a bottom the 
Coe will find it, get a toe hold 
and pull out. 

The all steel trussed arch con- 
struction with the cast steel hub 
insure maximum strength with 
minimum weight. Because of 
the fact that the wheel is not de- 
pendent upon grousers, spikes or 
studs for traction with the con- 
sequent necessity for sufficient 

The Coe Tractor Wheel 

weight to force the wheel into 
the ground, it is said to be pos- 
sible to make this wheel approxi- 
mately 50% lighter with a con- 
sequent saving in gasoline con- 

One of the principal claims 
made for the Coe Wheel is that it 
will not pack the soil. There has 
been an insistent demand by the 
farmers for a wheel that gives 
positive traction and at the same 
time cannot pack the soil. The 
Coe Wheel has exactly the op- 
posite effect. Instead of pack- 
ing the soil, it has a tendency to 
disc harrow it and the open spaces 
in the tread effectually prevent 
the wheel from filling up, thus 
eliminating slippage. The saving 
in weight and the positive trac- 
tion result in considerable added 
power at the draw-bar. It can be 
adapted to binders, and all heavy 
machines with equal success. If 
the Coe wheel will do what the 
inventors claim, it will be wel- 
comed by tractor manufacturers, 
for the heavier tvpe tractors labor 
under a great handicap. Weight 
costs money if built into the ma- 
chine, yet traction on all the stan- 
dard type wheels depends abso- 
lutely on weight. It is made in 
standard sizes adaptable to Ford- 
son, Samson and other types of

The Great- West Life Assurance Company is daily paying out large 
sums of money to Policyholders whose contracts have matured. The 
profits added to the originally stipulated sum are so surprising to the 
many that scores of letters are received expressing regret that the 
writers had not taken insurance many times more than the amount 
they did. 

Not surprising at all— the Company's watch words are "Service to 
Policyholders" — meaning rigid economy, advantageous investments and 
careful selection of risks^ 

The moral is, if a policyholder increase the amount of your insur- 
ance, if not, write the Company and let them explain their many at- 
tractive plans.

The Most Effective Weed 
Destroyers on the Market 

"CLIMAX" Cultivators 

For Horse or Tractor 

fplAJlMERS realize that one of the best assurances of maximum crops lies in 
proper soil cultivation. With the "Climax" they can keep their land in 
good tilth and eradicate the weeds that otherwise would rob it of moisture 
and nutriment. 


On summer fallow the ""Climax" has no equal. Its wide 
overlap of teeth, backed up by its rugged strength and effi- 
cient design, keeps the land black. It is giving splendid service 
on thousands of farms and makes a friend of every purchaser. 

Power Lift Cultivators are supplied for either horse or 
tractor use. The lift is automatic and raises or lowers the 
points as desired. Handy adjustments vary the depth of cut. 
Strong safety springs save breakage of teeth. A size to suit 
every farm.

Developing a Demand for Haying Equipment 

Making hay in 1922 is a dif- 
ferent process than when hay 
was cut and cured fifty years 
ago. How many farmers in your 
territory today own a mower 
and a dump rake and imagine 
that they are fully equipped for 
quick work in the hay field? It 
is the business of 'the dealer to 
show them that this is a delu- 
sion and that while the mower 
and rake are all right so far as 
they go, they don't enable the 
farmer to make hay rapidly with 
the minimum number of help- 


Have you studied the econo- 
mics of hay harvesting? If not 
now is the time to start. When 
you go after the hay tool busi- 
ness this season, increase your 
sales by showing farmers how 
they can accomplish rapid work 
with small crews providing they 
invest in such modern haying con- 
veniences as stackers and load- 
ers. There is no getting away 
from the fact that the farmer who 
pitches hay by hand is a back 
number. The modern way con- 
sists in using machinery for load- 
ing and stacking. Modern stack- 
ers and loaders are popular, they 
are popular because they deliver 
service in the hay field. And 
you should take steps to capi- 
talize on the popularity of these 
labor saving, money making ma- 

The Mechanical Equipment 

Let us consider a few of the 
hay machinery lines you can han- 
dle in 3^our district. There are 
enough good makes of mowing 
machines manufactured to offer 
your customers a wide range of 
choice. In many districts the 
5-ft. mower is in common use. 
A fair day's work with the 5-ft. 
cut mower is about 9 acres. 
From 12 to 15 acres can be cut 
in a day with the'' seven or eight- 
foot cut mowers. This means 
that one man, equipped with an 
8-ft. ■ cut mower, will do two- 
thirds more work per day than 
when a 5-foot cut machine is 
used. The saving in labor charg- 
es with the larger machine will 
in most cases more than offset 
the slight additional overhead 
expense of interest and deprecia- 

tion on the larger initial invest- 
ment involved. 

If you investigate conditions 
in your 'territory, you will likely 
find many opportunities for sell- 
ing large sized mowers. The on- 
ly valid objections to the use 
of the large machines are a small 
acreage of hay rough and un- 
even ground and exceptionally 
heavy growths of weeds or fine 

The larger size of mowers re- 
duce the size of the haying crew 
required and save time at cri- 
tical periods. Large, heavily con- 
structed mowers are most suit- 
able for use ' behind tractors. 
When planning your mowing 
machine business, see whether 
there isn't a chance to introduce 
the large sizes in sufficient num- 
bers to prove their worth to local 

Sales Arguments 

A few sales arguments which 
may be advanced in favor of a 
mowing machine include a sub- 
stantial frame, simple gears, ease 
of control, superior shafting, 
easily operated shifting lever, 
automatic shifter and high quali- 
ty cutting apparatus. If a mow- 
er is to stand up under hard and 
continued use the frame must 
be substantial and of right 
weight. The stronger and more 

simple the gears, the less chance 
there is for breakage. Wheels 
which have ample traction fa- 
cilitate free and easy cutting, as 
sufficient power is developed to 
drive the knives in any condi- 
tion of hay crops. 

Rakes, Stackers and Loaders 
The implement dealer who 
isn't prepared to push the sale ^ 
of sweep rakes, stackers and 
loaders should lose no time in 
outlining an advertising cam- 
paign which will put pep in his 
sales campaign. 

Are you preparing to handle 
hay stackers? If farmers in your 
section make a practice of stack- 
ing hay in the open they should 
be equipped with machine stack- 
ers. The modern stacker is a 
great help to 'the busy farmer. 
Used in conjunction . with push 
rakes, it entirely eliminates the 
tiresome work of pitching hay 
by hand. The modern stacker 
has many points of merit which 
keep a dealer supplied with sales 
arguments. Its portable feature 
is a grea,t convenience, especi- 
ally when a farmer has several 
patches of hay, and must move 
the haying equipment from place 
to place. 1 

Sweep rakes sell readily; two 
'or three sweep rakes, and a ma- 
chine stacker make an efficient 

When Haying Machinery Comes in Useful 

combination for putting up hay 
in the field. The sweep rake 
offers the farmer opportunity to 
reduce by 50 per cent the la- 
bor of handling hay. It is an 
inexpensive tool and is popular 
wherever hay is stacked in the 

Even where comparatively 
small loads are hauled on a 
sweep rake, it will be found con- 
siderably quicker and more econ- 
omical than loading hay on a 
wagon and hauling to the stack. 
Two men operating sweep rakes 
with a third man operating a 
modern stacker, handle hay at 
a rapid rate. 

The sweep rake is valuable not 
only because of the direct sav- 
ing it effects, but also because 
of 'the rapidity with which hay 
may be handled. Quick work 
in the hay field will often reduce 
loss from rain to a minimum. 

The machine loader is popu- 
lar with hay growers. It is 
particularly adapted for use 
where hay is loaded on racks and 
hauled to a mow or hay barn. 

The modern hay loader, used 
under average conditions, will in- 
crease the efficiency of the hay- 
ing crew fully 30 per cent. The 
loader is a valuable machine ; 
its saving in labor costs is con- 
siderable. The following points 
of meri't about a good loader 
make effective sales arguments : 
Rakes clear, but doesn't dig in- 
to the earth under windrow. 
Gathers no trash, handles hay 
gently so a minimum of leaves 
are lost ; large capacity ; high 
and narrow delivery (which is 
a distinct adv^antage where big 
loads are put on the racks) ; 
draft ; does good work on un- 
even ground ; has great durabil- 

Side Delivery Rakes 

Air cured hay is better than 
hay cured in the sun. This is 
why implement dealers should 
make a specialty of equipping 
farmers with side delivery rakes. 
The side delivery rake is of spe- 
cial value when used for getting 
the hay in shape for a machine 
loader. Many successful farmers 
show a preference to curing al- 
falfa, clover and other hay crops

in 'the windrow. The modern 
side deliverj'^ rake is the tool for 
the purpose as it follows the 
mower and handles the hay in 
the order it is cut down. 

From Forked Stick to Steel Share 

By G. B. Gunlogson 
(Copyright 1922, by J. I. Case T M. .Co.) 
Ages ago, when man had barely 
learned to fashion crude tools of wood 
and stone, agriculture began. A few 
roving wild animals Avere taken in 
charge because they furnished a more 
sure supply! of food than the hunters 
could bring in. To keep this stock from 
starving these early herdsmen sent their 
women and children out into the open 
fields to gather wild grains and grasses. 
Either in storing or feeding, some 
grains fell, germinated and grew, giving 
to some prehistoric genius the idea of 
planting for a crop. Who shall say 
that this unknown primitive man was 
not the greatest of all benefactors of 
the human race? The advancement of 
man took its most important forward 
step on the day when the first seeds 
were deliberately planted for the pur- 
pose of growing a crop. 

So began our first era in agriculture 
and in this primitive way it continued 
for untold generations. The harvests, 
rich or lean, served to supplement the 
food that Nature provided in her own 
way. The only tools employed were 
the grimy hands of the worker and per- 
haps his stained war club, or stone axe. 
^ » * » » » 

Our next historic glimpse of agricul- 
ture is in Egypt. Here along the fer- 
tile banks of the Nile we find fields of 
wheat and other edible grains and veg- 
etation und,er (cultivatioriv We ^haye 
now advanced to the second stage in 
agi-iculture where the grain is sown by 
hand in furrows made with a crooked 
stick. The crops are harvested with a 
crude sickle and threshed on the thresh- 
inf floor as spoken of in the Bible. 

During all the centuries from that 
early time to the childhood days of 
the passing generation agriculture 
practically stood still. Empires rose and 
vanished. Kings and potentates fought 
bloody wars for more land, and for more 
glory Ninety per cent of the people 
toiled from dawn to darkness all the 
days of their Uves in an effort to scratch 
frofti the earth a sufficiency of food for 
themselves and the other ten per cent. 
Agriculture for the most part was the 
occupation of iserfs land slaves, ,and 
famine was ever close at hand. 

Even in this country, the home ot 
land owning farmers, of opportunity 
and plenty, up to the time of the break- 
ing out of the Civil War agriculture as 
we know it today did not exist. 

The average farmer led a stern and 
weary existence. Long hours and drudg- 
gery were his lot. Over 60 hours of 
hand labor were required to produce an 
acre of wheat with the best tools he 
liad in those days, as compared with 
less than three hours today. His plow 
was a crude, inefficient implement; his 
seeding was done by hand; a scythe 
was used for harvesting the crop; and 
all through the winter months Jie 
labored, flailing and winnowing the 
precious grain. And so, up to the mid- 
dle of the nineteenth century, the farm- 
er labored wearily on. The end of each 
daiv found him tired and aching as he 
stumbled at twilight along the beaten 
pathway leading to his home. 

Something was wrong. Art and litera- 
ture flourished, but the one industry 
on which humanity depended for its ex- 
istence stood still. The farmer had 
labored long and well, but for want ot 
tools his rewards were small and there 
was no progress. The crude implements 
he possessed were made by himself or 
at the village smithy. There was no 
time to experiment with new imple- 
ments and no one to specialize in the 

making of better ones. Agriculture was 
a simple, nay a crude, business by it- 

Tlie dawn of progi-ess came, and the 
third great era in agriculture began, 
wilien the first steps were taken to divide 
agriculture into its two gi-eat component 
parts. Certain men began to specialize 
in the manufacture of farm machinery 
while others specialized in the use of 
that machinery. The world owes much 
to these few men who first recognized 
the needs of their fellow farmers. They 
had the vision and courage to attempt, 
and ability to succeed in, building new 
and better farm machinery that re- 

hours 3 minutes to 9 minutes 58 seconds. 

The cost of [producing wheat had 
dropped from $4 per acre to $1.12. 

The end of this development and co- 
operation between the farmer and the 
builder of farm machinery is not yet 
in sight. So long as farmers grow crops 
the development and manufacture of 
farm machinery must go on. There is 
as much being done for agriculture by 
the implement manufacturer today as 
there is on the farm. The workman 
Avho fashions the parts for a plow is 
doing as much for farming as the man 
who guides the finished plow in its 
furrow. The man who erects a thresh-

Primitive Plows aire Still Used on the Siberian Steppes 

volutionized agriculture. The specialists 

in the production of farm tools today 

are the implement manufacturers; and 

the men who specialize in their use are 

our modern farmers. So today, both 

classes are essential. Bach is dependent 

upon the other 'and agriculture and 

civilization on both. 


While agriculture has progressed 
farther and faster in the last seventy 
years than in all the centuries before, 
the introduction of every new device 
and method was met with opposition 
and ridicule. All these beginnings are 
well illustrated by the introduction of 
what was perhaps the first cast-iron 
plow, made by Charles Newbold about 
the year 1800. The plow was used with 
much success on his own farm, but fin- 
ancially, his enterprise was a failure. 
The farmers were opposed to new fangl- 
ed notions and contended that the use 
of cast iron poisoned the land, injured 
its fertility, and promoted the growth 
of weeds. Not until fifty years later 
did the cast iron plow come into general 
use. So, in spite of disappointments 
and failures, the new and better ma- 
chines and methods found their way, 
and will continue to find their way, into 

The Effect of Machinery 

With the introduction of farm ma- 
chinery the farmer began to expand. He 
has been relieved of much drudgery, and 
his hours have been shortened; his work 
has been made easier and more pleasant; 
he has gained leisure and facilities to 
seek pleasure and diversion for his 
family and himself, all of which have 
made him a broader man and a better 

The farmer's ability has been multi- 
plied through the miracle of machinery. 
He now produces in minutes that which 
took .hours before. The following start- 
ling comparisons show what had taken 
place as early as 1896— less than fifty 
years after the introduction of the 
cruder types of modern machinery: 

Each man on the farm was produc- 
ing five times as much as in 1850. 

The labor time required to produce 
an acre of barley had been reduced from 
63 hours 35 minutes to 2 hours 42 

The labor time required to produce a 
bushel of wheat was reduced from 3

able to agriculture as the man who 
pitches thie sheaves or operates the 

The salesman and dealers who form 
the contact between the manufacturer 
of the machinery and the user are as 
useful to the world as the farmer who 
markets the crop. From now on there 
can be no divorce between the machine 
builder and the machine user. Each 
has proved himself indispensable to the 
progi-ess of agriculture, and each is de- 
pendent for his gi-eatest success upon 
the intelligence and good will of the 

New Features in Advance-Rum- 
ely Tractors 

In Advance-Rumely tractors a 
new feature added is the enclos- 
ing of the final drive gears. A 
shield completely covers the gears 
and inside the spokes. The outer 
sheet extends outward to the in- 
ner side of the wheel rim. This 
cover keeps out dust and dirt. 
On each wheel side an extension, 
from the side of the cab covers 
the top and the inner side of the 

The gears are lubricated, as be- 
fore, by gravity feed. Inspection, 
holes on the inside of the cab 
show the gears are being lubri- 
cated and wearing. There is an 
inspection plate on the outer plate 
provided with a slide. 

Another change on the Ad- 
vance-Rumely (tractors is the set 
spark magneto with a new type 
of impulse coupling. The Bosch 
magneto is used. 

The last annual report of the 
United Grain Growers, Ltd. as 
for the fiscal ye^ar ending August 
31 last, in connection with (the 
sale of farm machinery and sup- 
plies shows a net loss in this 
department of $282,302. 

The loss in the machinery and 
supply department in 1919 was 
$52,069, and in 1920 totalled $59,- 
246. This is shown in a sum- ■ 
mary of the business as presented 
by the general manager. This 
total loss of nearly $394,000 in 
three years developed from a 
turnover in that period of $17,- 

The operating expenses of the 
department in 1921 were $595,- 
155. In 1920 $737,388, and in 

1919 $739,744. The grand (total 
sales in 1919 were $6,180,359. In 

1920 they were $6,908,896 and in 

1921 totalled only $4,676,918. This 
means a drop in volume of from 
nearly $7,000,000 to a little over 

The heavy losses in 1921, ex- 
plains the reporit, were due in 
some measure to heavy deprecia- 
tion to be faced. The general 
manager in his report states that 
as the prices depreciated from 
time to time during the year, the 
losses were merely absorbed in 
the (turnover, no special write- oflf 
in inventor)^ being made during 
the period. Reductions were 
made in the Hnes handled at ir- 
regular intervals. Prices on farm 
machine lines were lowered, but 
not so much as after the closure 
of the fiscal year when the most 
remarkable prices were set on 
implement h'nes — greatly below 
any possible replacement -cost. 

Calculating an average loss of 
but 10% on the stock in hand at 
the "commencement of the year, 
the item of depreciation in the 
'last fiscal year alone should have 
totalled approximately $158,000.

for your customers 

The Rumely Ideal 
^^Saves All the GrsUn** 

FARMERS are today more criti- 
cal of costs and savings than ever 
before. And that is as it should be. 
It gives you dealers the opportunity 
to do a service to your customers 
and neighbors and make a profit for 
yourselves by selling implements that 
save money for the user. It gives you 
a chance to show them that good 
machinery at a fair price saves them 
the most money— a7/ the time. 

The Rumely Ideal Separator is that 
kind of a machine. Its price is the 
lowest at which the superior, money- 
saving service it gives you can be 
bought. You do your customer a last- 
ing favor when you sell him one. 

The Rumely Ideal saves money for 
the farmer because it saves his grain. 
Due to the perfected principle upon 
which it is built an even flow of straw 
is maintained from the time it enters 
the machine until the straw, clear of 
grain, leaves the stacker. Clogging, 
winding and bunching are overcome. 
Its reputation for great capacity and 
clean, fast work is nation-wide. 

Sell your customers the Rumely Ideal 
Separator and save money for them. 
There are five sizes— the small as 
efficient as the large. 
There is some valuable territory open.

Self -Oiling Windmills 

The Biggest Selling Point Toronto 
Windmills Have Ever Offered. 

T~*ORONTO Windmills may now be secured equip- 
ped with an absolutely automatic oiling 
feature; double gears running constantly in oil — 
requiring fresh oil but once a year. Think of the 
selling points offered in connection with the saving 
of time — the troubles and dangers of frequent 
oiling eliminated. 

This big improvement alone adds greatly to Toronto 
Windmill value. In addition, any Toronto Wind- 
mill, new or in use, may now be made absolutely 
automatic in operation— starting or stopping itself 
as the pressure of the water in the supply tank 
decreases or increases. Or any Toronto Windmill 
now in use may be made self-oiling by the addition 
of the automatic oiling unit. 

These are big improvements that will go far in 
increasing sales. Write immediately for our special 
dealer proposition — get the Windmill business in 
your district with these big features NOW.

The Huber Mfg. Co., Marion, 
Ohio, in a recent -announcement 
state : — We have not recently an- 
nounced any reduction in the 
price of our tractors, buit have 
made a few reductions on some 
of our threshers to bring them 
down to practically a pre-war 
price. However, our tractors are 
now selling at a price as low as 
they ever sold before the war. 

G. B. Gunlogson of the adver- 
tising depart., of the J. I. Case 
Threshing Machine Co., Racine, 
Wis. says: "There is a very evi- 
dent improvement in sales of trac- 
tors and power farming machinery 
now in all sections of the counitry. 
We believe that all tractor manu- 
facturers are finding it so, and the 
outlook for continued improve- 
ment is good.''

John Lauson Dead 

John Lauson, president of the 
John, Lauson Mfg. Co., New Hol- 
stein, AVis. died April 15 follow- 
ing an operation. The late Mr. 
Lauson was born Jan .21, 1868, 
and started work as a mere boy. 
He commenced business for him- 
self at the age of nineteen — nev- 
er dreaming that he was laying 
the foundation for one of the 
largest gas engine and tractor fac- 
'tories in the United Staes. 

In 1880 he erected a small ma- 
chine shop, using a windmill as 
motive power. Shortly after his 
shop was destroyed by fire. Un- 

daunted by adversity, he rebuilt. 
He added to his premises and 
commenced the manufacture of 
marine and stationary boilers. 
This business was hardly under 
way Avhen another fire reduced 
the shop to ashes. He rebuilt for 
the second time. Entering into 
the boiler business with renew- 
ed energy, the establishment rap- 
idly expanded and by 1893 twen- 
ty-five men were employed in 
the shop. Another of the pro- 
ducts manufactured was the dou- 
ble cylinder tractor engine known 
as the Uncle Sam. 

In 1898 the John Lauson Mfg. 
Co. was organized, and incor- 
porated in 1899. Shortly afte 
this the first 4 h. p. Lauson gaso 
line engine appeared. As earl 
as 1910 the Lauson factory be- 
gan building and experimenting 
with gasoline and kerosene 'trac- 
tors. Production was commen- 
ced in quantities in 1916. 

The late Mr. Lau'son was great- ' 
ly esteemed for his sterling char- 
acter and desire to assist young 
men to get aheadi. He was a 
member of the Masonic order and 
thq Elks and was often spoken 
of as one who "Never made an 
enemy." He is survived by a 
widow, a son and a daughter, al- 
so three brothers, one of whom 
was an associate with him in the 
business. His funeral, on April 
18 was attended by a large con- 
course. •

The Very Low Twine Prices 

announced by the BRANTFORD CORDAGE COMPANY LIMITED over two 
months ago mean a much smaller outlay for Binder Twine than for some years 
past. On some grades there is a reduction of 6}4c. a pound — one third less than 
last year, or about half the price of four years ago. 

the only surviving strictly Canadian Binder Twine 
Factory in Canada, has had no tariff protectioii since 
1896, yet is today the largest producer of binder twine 
in the British Empire. These facts alone give the great- 
est testimony to the quality of Brantford Twines. 

Any wise dealer or farmer fully understands that we 
never could have reached our present position as the 
largest Binder Twine Manufacturers in the British Em- 
pire, in the face of keenest competition, if our quality had 
not been the very best. 

Our mills are equipped with the most modern machin- 
ery and devices which give our twines that outstanding 
uniformity, length, strength, firmness and finish which 
mean a saving of a lot of money, time and trouble in the 
harvest field. 

All our twines are submitted to a special treatment to 
make them insect proof.

ies or orders to our Western Office,

Western Canada's Twine Demand 

Last year the total area of 
grain j^rown in the Canadian 
West was 45,000,000 acres. To 
harvest this gigantic grain field, 
one 8-foot cut binder Avould have 
to travel 46,349,000 miles, and 
would take 1 ,760 years to do the 
job. Figure out yourself if it 
would last thait long. 

Now about the twine to bind the 
trrain on 45,000,00 acres. At a con- 
servative estimate of Zj/a fts. of 
twine per acre, a total of 112,500,- 
000 lbs. of. twine would be needed, 
or 2,250,000 bales. Placed end to 
end bales would form a 
solid chain 1,065 miles long. A 
twenty story building 240 feet 
high and 130 feet square could be 
l^uilt from these bales, and there 
would be enough twine left to 
completely fill it. Counting 600 
bales to (the caidoad it would re- 
quire a solid train of 3,750 cars 
extending 40 miles to haul it. 

Standard manila twine runs 
550 feet to the pound, so we get 

the pleasin- figure of 61,875,000,- 
000 feet of twine to bind the grain 
of 45,000,000 acres. 

Taking .sitandard manila twine, 
550 feet, at 12j/2 cents a pound, 
the dealers of Western Canada 
would sell $14,062,500 worth of 
twine to bind the grain on this

A New Garden Tractor 

The Gilson Mfg. Co., Port 
Washington, Wis., announce a 
new garden tractor known as the 
Bowden Power Hoe. This ma- 
chine has offset handle? so that 
the operator cat) walk between 
the rows. It is arched so as to 
work over a row without damag- 
ing the plants, The tractor is 
equipped with a 4-cycle one 
cylinder type, air-cooled itype, 
2^x2 J/2, with a speed range of 
800 to 1200 revolutions. The 
tractor can be throttled down to 
a travel speed of -j^ to 1^ miles 
per hour. 

Implements and tractors ex- 
ported from the United States 
during February were $G,127 less 
in value than those exported dur- 
ing January. This means that 
they have been on practically the 
same level for the first two 
months of 1922. 

Reports from Washington shovv 
an increase of more than $12,000,- 
000 in the exports of implements 

in J 921 as compared with 191.'i. 
lCx])orts of tractors incrcase<: 
$4,000,003. The gain in number 
exported was proi)ortionately al- 
mo.s't as great as the increase in 
value, which indicates only a 
slight increase in price. 

Exports of pumps increased by 
more than $8,000,000 as a result 
of the increased use of pumps for 
irrigation purposes.

power ' unit on the farm, as op- 
posed ito the tractor, car or truck. 

In a series of advertisements in 
the faim press the Live Stock 
Branch of the Department of 
Agriculture at Ottawa is conduct- 
ing a campaign for greater and 
better live stock production which 
nearly equals the propaganda of 
the Horse Association in the 
United States. 

Let us say at the outset thait 
we have no animus against Friend 
Dobbin as a farm power. The 
horse has, and- always will have, 
his place on the farm. He will 
be an auxiliary power which, in 
conjunction with the tractor, will 
make possible mo,re economical 
production. For some operations 
he will be more economical than 
the (tractor, but we have yet to 
develop Percherons with belt pul- 
leys. Further, for the sake of 
the horse itself, in a brief hot 
summer we would rather see a 
snorting tractor than teams that 
are suffering from hard work un- 
der the broiling sun. 

But to revert to our Depart- 
ment of Agriculture : In a recent 
advertisement they say that there 
is a ,g?reater demand for ig-'ood 
horses — drafters, saddle horses, 
medium weight and farm horses 
—than the trade can supply. In 
their advertising they deplore the 
fact that of laite proper attention 
is not being given to the breeding 
of good horses. One advertise- 
ment states : 

"People were misled into the idea that 
trucks and tractors were more profit- 
able. Labor was scarce and very costly. 
Feed was higli. Greater production of 
foodstuflfs was imperative. Cost of 
production was not considered.

'no longer profitable to do without horses 
for either city or farm work. 

"The economy and efficiency of the 
horse is at last realized by delivery and 
transport companies in the lowering of 
distribution costs. 

"Horses cost less to buy. They cost 
little or nothing for repair. Horses do 
not depreciate as fast. Their working 
life is longer. The cost of oare and 
management is less. The price of feed 
has been cut in two." 

Such advertising, and (there are 
later ads. that attack even more 
strongly the truck and traqtor, 
is, to say the least, a splendid 
invitation to start a controversy 
with truck and tractor interests. 
It is to be regretted that the 
Department of Agriculture takes 
this stand. There is no question 
of the horse versus the tractor. 
Both have a place to fill on the 
farms of Canada, and each factor 
— horse breeder or manufacturer 
of tractors — will do well to stick 
to their own line. 

The farm press are correct in 
criticising this type of advertis- 
ing, although all will agree that 
a campaign for more and better 
horses is a good policy. In com- 
enting on the campaign, "The 
Nor'-West Farmer," , Western 
Canada's leading farm publica- 
tion, says editorially: 

"Farmers were not misled into buying 
farm tractors. They bought them be- 
cause on the average farm in this 
country the tractor has a place which 
it can fill more economically than any 
other form of power. Neither is it 
true that in the cities the truck is 
being replaced by the horse. Little use 
beguiling ourselves with that hope. The 
statistics are all against the return of 
the horse to work on the city streets. 
Fewer horses are at work in every city 
in the land than five years ago, fewer 
still will be at work five years hence. 
There is no hope of the draught horse 
ever driving out the truck in city work, 
no more hope than there is of sailing 
ships replacing steam, .stage coaches the 
railroads or light horses the automo- 

Last year Wayne Dinsmore 
made a rush trip through West- 
ern Canada and then announced 
broadcast that nearly every trac- 
tor owned by the farmers in this 
territory was standing in fence 
corners — that their upkeep cost 
was such that farmers all over the 
west were using hors'es. This 
was disproven by facts published 
by the Imternational Harvester 
Co., showing that farmers did use 
their tractors in 1921. 

Now we have another con- 
troversy under way in Nebraska. 
Prof. Derrick of the Animal Hus- 
bandry Dept. of the University 
of Nebraska declares in the 
"Daily Star" of Lincoln, Neb., 
that "practically 75 per cent of 
the tractors purchased in recent _ 
years have not been used to pro- 
"duce the 1921 crop." Quite a 
"Dinsmorian" statement that. 

However, the International 
Harvester Co. again instituted an 
enquiry into the veracity of this 
statement. They sent question- 
naires to farmer owners of their 

tractors in Niebraska. Three 
hundred and forty replies were 
returned, of which 24 were not 
considered because the farmers 
had either sold their tractors or 
ithe data furnished was too gen- 
eral in nature. The International 
found that of 300 farmers using 
their tractors only 16 did not use 
their machines owing to operait- 
ing cost. This means that only 
5.06 of the farmers did not use 
their tractors as against 99.94 who 

There is no sense in the issu- 
ing of erroneous information by 
horse enthusiasts, or for that mat- 
ter by tractor enthusiasts but it 
will be better for both schools of 
modern power (to, "ho€ their own 
roes" silently and efficiently. And 
it is a pity that the Canadian 
Dept. of Agriculture should lend 
itself to the possibility of being 
charged with instituting propa- 
ganda ins(t)ead of >:.onfining its 
efforts to a perfectly laudable end 
— that of developing better horses 
for use on the farms of Canada 
and for transportation in our 

Tractors on American Farms 

It is estimated that in the Unit- 
ed States there are available for 
use on the farms this year about 
440,000 tractors, an increase of 
193,860 over the number on hand 
at Jan. 1, 1920. At thatt date, 
says "Farm Implement News," 
Chicago, in an interesting review, 
there were 246,139 tractors on 
229,334 farms. As regards owner- 
ship of tractors Illinofis, Iowa, 
Kansas and Minnesoita lead in 
the order given, but Minnesota 
pressed Kansas strongly for 
third place. 

■ The above authority estimates 
that tractors on the farms of the 
staites named at the present time 
total :-Ohio, 20,275 ; Michigan, 13,- 
370 ; Indiana, 18,475 ; Illinois, 
39,765 ; Wisconsin, 23,365 ; Iowa, 
33,425; Minnesota, 28,405; Kan- 
sas, 29,815; North Dakota, 19,- 
600; South Dakota, 20,490 and 
Missouri, 12,680. 

The grand total on U. S. farms 
is estimated at 439,970 tractors. 
"Farm Implement News," in re- 
ferring to Fordson traqtors says 
that "Those in rhore or less touch 
with the Ford interiests state 
that there are approximately 
180,000 Fordsons in use in this

A New Sales Opportunity for Progressive Dealers 

THE THOUSANDS of tractors sold the last few years have multiplied the opportunities 
for thresher sales. Nearly every tractor owner is now a thresher prospect. 

There are two reasons why Case dealers can get the big share of this business — 
their opportunity now is greater than it has ever been before. 

One reason is the Case Thresher. These machines are made in 7 sizes to meet the re- 
quirements of all tractor owners and all farm conditions. 

Case Threshers handle every kind of grain and seed satisfactorily. They are efficient, 
thresh clean and save the grain. 

The average life of a Case Thresher is easily 20 years. Most of the first Case steel 
machines sold in 1904 are still in use and the machines built today are even more durable. 
Compare this with any other farm machine you sell — this is a great selling advantage. 

Every part in a Case machine is made to do its work properly and efficiently. Changing 
from one kind of grain to another usually does not require more than three simple adjust- 
ments and all can be made without stopping — this is a feature that will appeal to farmer 

The first Case threshing machine was made 80 years ago. Constant development and 
improvements have made the Case a popular machine in every country where grain is 
grown and today more Case machines are sold annually than of any other make. 

Another advantage now available to aggressive dealers is a new plan for working up 
thresher sales. This is now ready. See the Case salesman or write for the details of this 
sales plan. You'll find it is a business getter.

Shipments and Service 

Probably as a result of condi- 
tions branch houses and distribu- 
tors in the farm machinery busi- 
ness make the complaint that 
many dealers seem to have adopt- 
ed the policy of waiting for the 
business to come to them be- 
fore they consider it advisable to 
order stocks. 

As an .example, in the smut 
machine trade, few stock orders 
were placed this year, but at the 
last moment, just before seeding, 
manufacturers had phone calls 
and wires from dealers asiking 
that machines be delivered on 
the rush — or quicker. This con- 
dition is anything but satisfac- 
tory, to say the least. The man- 
ufacturer has to have a large 
stock of machines of any type 
made up to meet a demand the 
size of which he cannot compute. 
If he does not tie up capital in 
machines erected and finished, he 
has to rush them up at the last 
minute to meet such orders as 
above mentioned. The result is 
unsatisfactory service, for which 
the manufacturer or wholesaler 
gets blamed. 

The function of the implement 
dealer is service not only in 
connection with the machines 
when sold, but in being able to 
supply them when they are re- 
quired. Even under present con- 
ditions it is not a paying policy 
to do business without stock, 
ordering as the customer con- 
cludes he wants the machine. If 
the dealer is to live up to the 
function he is in business to ful- 
fill he should, if at all possible, 
make an estimate of his needs in 
'specific lines and should have 
stocks sufficient to meet the prob- 
able demand, with in addition a 
small surplus for urgency or- 

No estimate of the machine 
needs of a territory can be gain- 
ed by guessing at it in the store. 
The accurate method is to can- 
vass the territory sizing up the 
equipment and probable needs 
of the farmers. The probable 
demand, plus a iknowledge of 
what he has sold in previous 
years of this or that type of im- 
plement, will allow the dealer to 
make an estimate of his needs 
which will be of real value. 

No man can contract for 
goods by guess, and guessing is 
about as futile as the policy of 
not placing orders at all. What 
is the ultimate effect of his lat- 
ter policy? The wholesaler or 
manufacturer cannot obtain any 
degree, of accurate information 
from a dealer organization as to 
what the probable demand for a 
line of machines will be. In 
these days of high production 

cost it is an expensive matter for 
the manufactuirer to hazard a 
guess as to the volume of a 
given line he should make up. 
They need, and their wholesalers 
need, the co-operation of the 
dealer to meet the situation. If 
the manufacturer adopts the poli- 
cy of making nothing ,as no vis- 
ible demand appears, then when 
the farmers want the goods the)' 
cannot get them, and the indus- 
try as a whole is condemned as 
a result. 

It is very true that to-day the 
farmer will rarely give any de- 
finite idea of what his machine 
needs will be, but it should be 
the policy of the dealer to point 
out the alternative possibility 
that if the manufacturer does 
not know requirements the ma- 
chines may not be available. At 
all events, the dealer should, as 
a matter of business, have sam- 
ples of his lines on hand — and in 
cases even samples have not 
l)een evident in retail warehouses. 

Last minute orders lead to the 
dealer complaining about the ser- 
vice he get.s from the factory 
or distributor — but who is ini- 
tially responsible for the fact 
that the factory diid not know 
what volume of machines might 
be required? Each link in the 
chain of distribution is in'terde- 
pendent---factory, wholesaler and 
dealer and each factor must work 
with the other to assure a sat- 
isfactory supply of goods. 

Poor service on shipments may 
not be the fault of the wholesale 
house, but that of the dealer be- 
cause he made no efifort to anti- 
cipate the demand. An eleventh 
hour demand is one of the worst 
features in the business, either 
in connection with new machines 
or repairs. 

All reputable factories or dis- 
tributors do not wish to load up 
the dealer with goods, but there 
is an extreme in the matter of 
not stocking goods which can be 
followed that will act as a de- 
terrent to the success of the re- 
tail dealer. It is a good policy 
to look ahead, to get out into 
the territory and try to make as 
close an estimate as possible of 
what you will need. Such a visit 
to the farmers uncovers pros- 
pects for many sales you did not 
know existed ; and action is bet- 
ter any old time than sitting 
in the office and bemoaning the 
fact that there "aint no sich ani- 
mal" as business. 

Quality Counts 

There will always be farmers 
who will buy Fordson because 
of the price, but the great mass 
of farmers will continue to buy 
those tractors which will sdrve 
them best in the long run. Quali- 
ty counts even to the extent of 
buying second hand quality 
goods in preference 'to cheaper hand goods. 

Sales Possibilities 

In preparing for business this 
year there are a few facts which 
the dealer should consider. While 
it is no time to lay in stock 
without forethought, it is no time 
to try to do business with an 
empty warehouse — ordering the 
goods as the customer is sold 
them. Such a method invites 
the loss of business. 

Consider the fact that the far- 
mers market is a rising one, and 
that at to-day's prices he can 
in most cases make a satisfac- 
tory profit. Another fact is -that 
the commodities which the far- 
mer must purchase have been 
materially decreased in price, in 
a number of cases below the^ 
pre-war level, and in practically 
all cases the wide spread be- 
tween the market in which the 
farmer sells and that in which 
he purchases has been eliminated. 
The equilibrium has been re- 
stored in very large measure, 
and this fact has had the eflPect 
of putting the farmer in a men- 
tal condition that permits him 
to face the proposition of going 
into the market in practically 
a normal fashion. 

The Sale of Lighting Plants 

Distributors of electric light 
plants remark upon a live in- 
terest being shown in this type 
of equipment. In selling light- 
ing plants it is always advisa- 
ble for the dealer to have a sam- 
ple plant on his floor. If there 
is on local power plant he uses 
his sample plant to light his 
premises, which is an excellent 
way of demonstrating tlip effi- 
ciency of the outfit. 

Lighting plant sales are not 
confined to the rural demand. 
In "his town the dealer can devel- 
op a good business. He can sell 
installations for store light- 
ing, for halls, school.?, churches, 
etc. There are so many capaci- 
ties being manufactured that lie 
can always sell a plant to meet 
the views of the prospect, and 
these may be either 'belt driv- 
en or direct connected. 

Demonstration of plants in 
successful operation is a big fac- 
tor in developing lighting plant 

After the dealer has installed 
some lighting outfits he can prove 
their utility to his prospect by 
showing them at work under ac- 
tual farm conditions. He may 
say to his farmer prospects that 
he will take them to these farms. 
Or maybe the farmer would ra- 
ther go there alone and get the 
other farmer's candid opinion of 
it. In such a case, just tell the 
prospect to go around to Jones' 
farm and hear what Jones and

his family have to say about 

But even then you have not 
sold an outfit to your prospect. 
You have only started to get him 
interested. The next rtiove on 
your part is to visit his farm. 

Is It Economy 

Most progressive business men 
believe in advertising and in the 
maintenance of sales effort even 
during periods of dull trade. 
But all are not of this idea, 
and the point arises whether it 
is economy to discontinue sales 
efifort, and to lay oft salesmen, 
because of a too stringent poli- 
cv of retrenchment. 

'I'd many business men, a 
period of depression, such as that 
which we have been going 
tliro.ugh, means the cutting down 
of selling appropriations and a 
ruthless slashing of advertising. 
Tt takes courage for the direc- 
tors of a business to spend mon- 
ey for advertising when their 
collections are slow and when it 
requires all the cash which can 
lie scraped up to keep the ma- 
chinery moving. Nevertheless, 
the men who have already been 
through such times before and 
those who have the judgment and 
the vision which make successes 
know that it is only by aggres- 
siveness in selling and in adver- 
tising that they can gain the ad- 
vantage in the years to come.

Sulky Rake 

Is guaranteed to do every class of work required of 
a sulky rake, and do it in perfect shape. Built al- 
most entirely of steel, with principal working parts 
reversible, it will do its job and stick to it longer and 
with less repair than any ordinary hay rake. Axles 
are cold rolled and slightly arched, giving the wheels 
correct pitch. Fifty-four inch wheels can be inter- 
changed. Dump rods are reversible and number of 
teeth can be varied for fine or coarse raking.

Selling the 

Auto-Oiled Aermotor 

We believe that more real profit is made from the sale of 
Aermotors than any other line of farm equipment. The discount 
to the dealer is liberal and he doesn't have to spend all of his profit 
in running back to make the outfit satisfactory. The Auto-Oiled 
Aermotor, when once properly erected, requires no futher attention 
from the dealer. 

REMEMBER that the Auto-Oiled Aermotor is the genuine 
double- geared, self -oiling windmill, with gears inclosed and running in 
oil. Oil it once a year and it is always oiled. After 7 years of use in 
every part of the world, it has proven its ability to run 2 or 3 years, 
or even longer, with one oiling and without its ever being necessary 
for anyone to go on the tower- 

The Aermotor gives more service, with less attention, than any other piece of machinery 
on the farm. The Aermotor is skillfully designed, well made, and backed by a company 
which has a reputation for doing things right.

Reliable Equipment Needed for 

The usual summer discussion 
r egarding- roads and tours, heard 
wherever motorists get together 
reminds us of Perry Gomery's 
■search for a Canadian transcon- 
tinental motor route. There art 
seven transcontinental motor 
routes in the U. S., but none in 

Gomery's was the first attem])t 
to cross Canada from east to west 
in a car. His route was by the 
Ottawa River, across Sault Ste. 
Marie, thence to Duluth and Win- 
nig, across the prairies until 
he passed the Great Divide and 
the main range of the Rockies. 
At Cranbrook he steered south 
and travelled several hundred 
miles through the state of Wash- 
ington, arriving at Vancouver in 
36 days. 

In describing his cqnipmor.t, 
Mr. Gomery says : 

In selectmpr tlie brand of tire for 
(his gruelling test, I would 
against any unknown brand. If you 
l)uy tire« tliat cannot afford to be 
bad. you have liitdied your wagon to 
a star, or, to be strictly correct, stars 
to your wagon. Even the tires that 
come on a new car may not be good 

"Before leaving Montreal, I had new 
'■(Jutta Percha" Cross-Tread Tires all 
lound and two spares. I gave them a 
square deal, which is more than tires 
usually get. At Winnipeg I had them 
thoroughly inspected and did the same 
(or them in my own way frequently. 
The result I am almost — but not quite 
— too modest to state. In the recorded 
run of 3,370 miles, plus mileage expense 
of losing the trail (which we did al- 
most every day), side trips, etc., mak- 
ing a total mileage of 3,840,' I experi- 
enced with those "Gutta Percha" tires 
not a single puncture. 

"After the collision I had with the 
telephone company's car in the Crow's 
Nest Pass, I found a front casing and 
tube badly damaged, but with this 
exception I arrived at Vancouver on 
the same tires with which I started. 
Cliains were used twenty to fifty miles 
at a stretcli, and evei-y conceivable 
shape and form oif stone was encoiin- 
tered for long distances. If I eetab- 
li.shed no other record, I am of opinion 
that I have one in tires."

and so prevent re-growth.

Engine Fuel at Sc Per Gallon 

Bannatyne Ave. WINNIPEG 

Scientists have made so many 
promises of cheaper engine fuel 
that the opening up erf a new 
industry for the production of 
a new type of engine fuel will 
be welcomed. 

North Borneo, in the East In- 
dies, is thickly covered with for- 
ests of a tree called the Nipa 
palm. It is an established fact 
that an acre of ground planted 
Avith this palm yields 250 gal- 
lons of alcohol-like spirit a year, 
so that the possibilities of the new 
industry are practically unlim- 
ited. Under existing conditions 
it could be produced at a cost 
of about 8c per gallon. Most 
of the trees belong to tb.e na- 

The use of Nipa palm fur mo- 
tor fuel is by no means new, 
'.ilthough up to the present the 
only place in which it has been 
tried on anything approaching a 
commercial scale, is in 'the Phil- 
ippine Islands. It is stated that 
the fuel causes no carbonization 
whatever. That alone should re- 
commend it to all automobile 
users. It considerably minimi- 
ses engine trouble, has slightly 
grea'ter power, and produces quite 
as much mileage as gasoline. 
Any engine can be changed over 
from gasoHne to nipa palm spir- 
it with practically no adjustment 
whatever. In fact, the only 
change is that slightly more air 
is needed. 

Nipa spirit has no odor and, 
at its present production price 
could be sold the car, tractor or 
engine owner at 25c per gallon.

Twin City Announces New 
- Thresher 

The Twin City Co., Minnea- 
polis, are issuing new attractive 
wall hangers, finely colored. One 
illustrates their Twin City trac- 
tor and their thresher, shown in 
section, the other diepicts the 
new Twin City Junior Thresher, 
which is built in three sizes, 
22x36, 26x42, and 28x46. In 
commenting on 'the new thresher 
the company states : 

"To the farmer who wants a 
small machine with big capacity 
to thresh, separate, clean and 
save all grains and seeds, we 
offer the TWIN CITY 22x36. 
With this machine he can 'thresh 
his own crops and then thresh 

for a few of his neighbors. A 
two plow tractor nearly any 
make will furnish sufficient pow- 
er to properly operate. The .24x 
42 and 28x46 are suited to 
neighborhood and custom work. 
They possess all of the qualities 
for big capacity, thorough, fast, 
clean work and the strength of 
their construction insures long- 

These threshers are made of 
carefully selected lumber and are 
of exceptionally strong design. 
The prices are stated to be in 
line with those of the manufac- 
turers of this type of separator. 
Complete specifications will be 
shown in a catalogue which 
the company will issue soon. 
The Twin City Co. anticipates 
a big sale of threshing machines 
this year and is urging its deal- 
ers to get ready. 

Avoiding Tire Troubles 

The Armored Inner Tire Co. 
of Canada, 216 Bannatyne Ave., 
Winnipeg, report a 'good demand 
for their line of armored tires. 
They state that many doctors 
and business men who have to 
travel over all conditions of road 
surface strongly endorse the 
economy of their tirds, whiclh 
are also being sold by 'the Ash- 
down Hardware Co. 

This inner tire is claimed to 
absoluteiy prevent punctures and 
blowouts. They have been on 
the m.ariket for over four years 
and have been tested over all 
kinds of road and owners state 
that they have pulled out nails, 
tacks, glass and every concei- 
vable cause for punctures from 
the covers, yet the car ran along 
with no trouble. 

This inner tire is said to go 
into the casing as readily as an 
inner tube. It is made of fa- 
bric, the finest Para rubber and 
patented inter-connecting steel 
discs. Fabric is on the outside, 
three plys of rubber inside, and 
between them lie outer and inner 
armored plates, flexible, overlap- 
ping discs or pliable steel. The 
whole — fabric rubber and plates 
—are vulcanized into a resilient 
casing on which the car rides 
like a feather. Extreme pressure 
of air in the tires in not neces-

Mccormick binder 


McCormick and Deering Binders and Harvester 
Brands of Twine are Made to Work Together 

It^is Good Business to Sell them Together 

The farmers of Canada are being urged to use Harvester twine in McCormick 
and Deering binders. The reason is evident —good binders operate to complete 
satisfaction only when threaded with good twine. The best twine is helpless 
when used with a worn-out, poorly constructed knotter. 

McCormick and Deering Binders 
are made by the International Harv- 
ester Company, the only 
manufacturer in the 
world making both binders 
and twine. In design and 
construction, in materials and 
workmanship, they are the 
best binders money can buy. 
Such products build a good 
foundation for continued 

This year Harvester twine 
prices are lower than in over 
five years— yet the high quali- 
ty remains the same. The 
spread in price today between 
Harvester twines and inferior 
twines is a mighty small item 
—the spread in quality as great 
as ever. No farmer can afford 
to use cheap twine. No dealer 
can afford to sell it. 

Sell the Big Balls 

International Harvester 
brands of twine are wound 
in the original Big Ball. 
This is a real, practical fea- 
ture and one that you can 
recommend to your custo- 
mers. It means less snarl- 
ing, fewer twine stops, and 
greater satisfaction. Tell 
your customers about the 
Big Ball. 

Sell your customers Harvester 
twine in the original Big Ball and 
then point out to them 
the advantages of starting 
the season with new Mc- 
Cormick and Deering Binders. 
You will build good business 
and put the farmer on the road 
to greater harvest-time satis- 

If you are not already in a 
position to sell McCormick 
and Deering Binders and 
Harvester brands of twine, we 
suggest that you get in touch 
with the nearest branch 
house and learn how to be- 
come an International agent.

Bosch Brings Out New Spark 
Plugs and Announces Policy 

The manufacturing and market- 
ing policy which will govern the 
production and sale of Bosch 
Spark Plugs during 1922 is es- 
pecially interesting, not only be- 
cause it includes a price reduction 
and the bringing out of new types 
but because the policy itself is 
based upon the expressed opinions 
of the prominent automotive job- 
bers of the country. 

The American Bosch Magneto 
Corporation decided last summer 
that they would make a careful 
and thorough investigation to de- 
termine just what constituted an 
ideal spark plug line, and what 
rules should be followed in its 
sale and distribution. They de- 
cided ithat, as no group of indivi- 
duals was better able to give this 
information than the jobbers, 
questionnaire letters would be 
sent out and the jobbers asked to 
give their opinions. This was 
done, and the corporation's field 
representatives personally inter- 
viewed many leading jobbers on 
the same object. 

The jobbers were asked to state 
what size and types of plugs a 
manufacturer should produce to 
cover practically all engine re- 
quirements, and other pertinent 

Before the questionnaire was 
sent out, there were only three 

ly designed to conform with this 
opinion and the Bosch line now 
consists of seven types of the fol- 
lowing sizes: % inch standard 
with large hex, % inch standard 
with S. A. E. hex, % inch long 
with large hex, % inch extra long 
with lar^e hex, % inch long with

types of Bosch Spark Plugs, but 
it was the opinion of most of those 
questioned that seven types were 
needed to meet the requirements 
of practically all well known en- 
gine types. Four new types of

Lightning Rod Installation In 

The Lightning Rod Act in 
Saskatchewan comes into force 
on June lsit. This act provides 
that no person may sell material 
or apparatus to be used for 
lightning protection or install 
such apparatus on any building 
unless authorized to do so by a 
license obtained from the Fire 

A. E. Fisher, Fire Commission- 
er for the province recently dis- 
cussed ithe regulations governing 
ithe installation of lightning rods 
vvith representatives of manufac- 
turers and dealers in this line of 
equipment. The above act was 
explained to the dealers, and met 
with little opposition. 

Mr. Fisher reminded the deal- 
ers and distributors of lightning 
rods that the new legislation will 
require each representative in the 
province to be bonded to the ex- 
tent of $5,000. In (this regard, he 
said, the Government would 
recognise any regular bonding 

He stated also that in cases 
where lightning does damage to 
a building equipped with rodding, 
the manufacturer of the protec- 
tive apparatus will be liable for the 
amount of the damage or the 
amount of the installation costs. 
In cases where the manufacturer 
fails to pay the amount, the Fire 
Commissioner may take action 
against the bond for the amount. 

Every agent employed by a 
company, Mr. Fisher stated, will

require a license, for which he 
will have to make application to 
the Fire Commissioner. He urg- 
ed the dealers present to employ 
no agents until they had obtained 
such license. 

Rock Island Announce Light- 
Draft Spreader 

The Rock Island Plow Co., 
Rock Island, 111., recently added 
to their line the new model "B" 
manure spreader. Many new 
features are incorporated in this 
machine; the most noteworthy 
being the installing of Hyatt rol- 
ler bearings on the beater and 
broadcaster. The bearings are 
enclosed in dirt proof, oil tight 
boxes, assuring maximum service 
with a minimum of attention. 

Usually, we find the manure 
spreader is required to operate in 
all kinds of weather and is left 
Sitanding outside a good deal of 
the time, with the result that the 
beater and broadcaster become 
in such a condition that they re- 
quire a great deal of added power 
to turn them at the high rate of 
speed necessary to get right 
results. The use of anti-friction 
bearings at these points of high 
speed, assure free running, light 
draft at all times, under all con- 
ditions even though ithey be oiled 
only at long intervals. In fact, 
very little time need be spent in 
' oiling anti-friction bearings after 
they have once been well filled 
with grease. 

It is mos,t essential that the 
beater and broadcaster be in good 
working order at all times to 
secure an even distribution of 
the material spread, and in order 
to obtain the best results manure 
should always be spread evenly 
over the surface of the ground. 
The practicing of economy in the 
use of fertilizer is as important 
as is economy in other branches 
of farming. 

The use of anti-friction bear- 
ings on the beater and broadcast- 
er results in a considerable re- 
duction in draft, smoothness of 
operaition making for even dis- 
tribution and a less waste of ma- 
terial, as well as lessening the 
possibilities of either of these two 
units becoming jammed while 
operating at high rates of speed. 

International Annoulice New 

The International Harvester 
Co. has just announced a new 
15-30 hp. gear drive model, with 
all gears inclosed. It is equipped 
wiith a 4}^ inch bore by 6 inch 
stroke engine running at a speed 
of 1,000 rpm. The complete ma- 
chine weighs 5,575 pounds. 

Boosting The Tractor 

By J. B Bartholomew, 
President, Avery Company 

An analysis of the subject 
shows that we have several kinds 
of "Boosters" in connection with 
the tractor and power farming in- 
dustry. Boosting which consists of 
"knocking" every other machine 
but your own, by which practice 
you gain a self-satisfied jolly that 
gives that false sense of superior- 
ity but which your competitors 
fail to recognize, and too often 
you overlook the depressed effect 
that it leaves upon a prospective, 
buyer — especially one tKat docs 
not look upon your particular 
machine with too much favor — 
under which circumstances, if 
you are able (to convince him thai 
all other machines are inferior, he 
is apt to conclude that yours is 

Boosting of a kind which per- 
suades everybody that tractor 
and power farming is a better, 
cheaper and quicker method of 

doing farm work, is a protection 
to the indus;try, and immediately 
brings the prospective buying 
mind to the point of becoming 
seriously interested. 

Boosting wherein all reference 
to competitive machinery is drop- 
ped and a thorough and compet- 
ent explanation of the design and 
construction, the materials and 
workmanship, the advantages of 
operating your own goods, and 
what they will do to promote 
cheaper production of crops by 
better tillage and the saving of 
time and doing the work at the 
right time, (which is the essence 
of farming) how they will actual- 
ly save money and make money 
for the owners and users, all tends 
to bring about favorable decisions 
and the resolve to buy. 

Operating Costs of Lighting 

Tests held by the Missouri Ex- 
periment Station show that the 
cost of electricity produced by 

the average farm lighting plant 
is becoming very reasonable. The 
tests reported show that the aver- 
age fuel cost, in a number of 
trials, was only 53^ cents per 
kilowatt hour when using kero- 
sene. Allowing $25 a year for 
depreciation of the plant, the fig- 
ures would compare very favor- 
ably with the cost of electric cur- 
rent used in the city home. The 
reduction in price of this equip- 
ment is stimulating popular in- 
terest over the state, according to 
a report.

Old Dealer Hubbard went to the cup- 

To get a big farmer a bearing. 
But when he got there the cupboard was 

And so the big farmer left, swearing. 
The bearing had busted and the big far- 
mer trusted 
Old Hubbard would have one in stock; 
He had been such a booster he crowed 
like a rooster. 
But from then on did nothing but 

Old Hubbard was nervous on f^e subject 
of service. 
He was positively nutty, in fact; 

He had an aversion, beyond hope of con- 

To the thought that goods sold should 
be backed. 

He heMi to the notion with tragic 

That service was all a big blunder; 
How any concern with profits to earn 
Could fall ioT it made Hubbard 

"What I can't comprehend is how in the 

This service can pay any money, 
And hiring a man with a wrench and oil 

Strikes me as outlandishly funny." 
Old Hub was dismayed to find that 
his trade 
In volume was rapidly shrinking; 
It had gone to predition, due to general 
Acieording to his way of thinking. 
His business was dying through sheer 
lack of buying, 
If we should let him do the telling; 
But a better solution of his sales dim- 

Is found in an absence of selling. 
Then there came without warning, one 
bright winter morning, 
The sheriff, who nailed up the door ; 
And he said to old Hubbard, as he 
looked in the cupboardi; 
"I should have done this long before." 

A New Tractor Disease 

The "Cletrac Courier" tells a 
good story about an owner of 
one of their tractors who came 
to their dealer with his magneto 
which he claimed was weak. He 
got a new magneto and the old 
one was sent to the repair shop. 
The following week, the • farmer 
again appeared with the new mag- 
neto — which he also said was 

The owner's son who had been 
away upon a visit, returned to 
the farm at this time and found 
upon investigation that the Cletrac 
had been idle for six or eight, 
weeks. During this period some 
barn mice had investigated the j 
Cletrac, entered the exhaust 
manifold and made their nest in 
one of the cylinders. When the 
son tore the machine down, he 
found one cylinder and the encire 
manifold lined with rags and pap- 
er which made an ideal nest for 
the baby mice which he found. 

Moral — don't always blame 
the magneto, it may be mice in, 
the manifold.

For 80 years it has 
been our estab- 
lished policy to 
build only machines 
of the highest qual' 
ity and to sell them 
at the lowest pos- 
sible prices. T o- 
day, as a conse- 
quence, more Case 
threshers are sold 
than any other 

More than any other class of buyers, farmers want efficient 
machinery, and before they buy they want to be shown why the 
machine is efficient. The dealer who sells Case Steel Threshers 
has a machine of the highest quality in its line. In their construction he can point to the 
many exceptional features that have made Case threshers famous. 

Some of the outstanding qualities of Case threshers that will appeal to experienced 
farmers and threshermen are — 

STEEL CONSTRUCTION assures permanent efficiency. Great strength and rigidity 
of frame resist all twisting or wearing strain to which a threshing machine is constantly 

LONG LIFE. The average life of a Case thresher is easily 20 years. Most of the first 
Case steel machines sold in 1904 are still in use and the machines built today are even more 
durable. Compare this with the life of the average farm machine you sell. This is a great 
selling advantage. 

SELF ALIGNING BEARINGS are used in all important places. This type of bearing 
contributes to smooth, easy running, requires less attention and is more easily replaced than 
the other bearings. Compare these bearings with ordinary bearings on grain threshers. 

CASE FEEDERS have many practical advantages found in no other feeder. They will 
absolutely feed any kind of grain that is fit to thresh, evenly and without slugging. Every kind 
of seed and grain can be threshed with Case threshers. They thresh fast and save the grain. 

A STANDARD MACHINE. More grain is threshed every year with Case threshers 
than any. other make. . Every farmer knows Case threshers and prefers to have his work 
done with Case machines. Case machines are standard machines and have the highest 
resale value. 

In addition to having a superior product to sell, Case dealers have many other advantages. 
A new plan for developing thresher sales is now being offered all Case dealers. See the Case 
salesman or write for details of this plan.

Knowledge of Costs Essential for Dealer's Success 

Under present conditions it is 
more important than ever before 
that the implement dealer has 
really accurate information on his 
exact cost of doing business. He 
may be a good bviyer and an ex- 
pert salesman, but if he doesn't 
know what it is costing him to do 
business he is like a rudderless 
ship. He may arrive at the end 
of the year and show a net profit, 
but it is more due to luck than to 
merchandising skill. 

We too often think that we know 
what it is costing us to do business 
when we do not. Often small 
items of expense escape us, or 
have not been provided for in our 
system of accounting. A small 
leak in a retail implement business 
makes a mighty big puddle by the 
end of the year. Goods may be 
taken from stock for use around 
the store — such as bolts, nails, 
screws, oil or gasoline. These 
are not charged up. Again, an 
allowance may be made the cus- 
tomer at settlement time, or goods 
damaged by careless handling 
may have to be sold at a loss. 

In determining the cost of doing 
business, first allow yourself a 
good salary, as much as you 
would demand if you were manag- 
ing a similar business for some 
other man. When setting your 
salary, remember the present cost 
of living. Carry plenty of insur- 
ance in the mutual companies, so 
that in event of fire you will not 
^suffer. Fire protection is a very 
necessary expense. 

Make your expense account 
carry a life insurance policy of 
$10,000 to $20,000 on your life, 
running to your estate, so that in 
event of death your administrator 
could clean up all your indebted- 
ness and not be obliged to sell 
your business at a forced sale and 
consequent loss. Have this policy 
in addition to any life insurance 
you carry for the protection of 
your wife and family. Remember 
that some day you must go to 
your reward, and think how much 
easier it would be for your son or 
wife through a manager to con- 
tinue the business if they had 
$10,000 or $20,000 to use in liquid- 

ating your indebtedness. This in- 
surance is a legitimate item of 
expense to be carried by your 

Items of Expense 
Provide for donations, deprecia- 
tion of buildings, merchandise and 
furniture and fixtures, including 
your trucks and automobiles. De- 
duct 2 per cent on brick buildings, 
3 per cent on frame buildings, 10 
per cent on furniture and fixtures, 
and more than that on your trucks 
and autos. 

Provide for losses occasioned by 
4DOor accounts, notes and collec- 
tion fees. Include freight and ex- 
press in your expense account, as 
that is the only place that you will 
get it all in. Consider it in mark- 
ing your goods but count it an 
expense just as you do cartage, 
which it really is. 

Include every item that you can 
possibly count as expense. This 
will help to cut down your annual 
income tax. Don't try to keep 
your expense account down by 
leaving out some items. Better 
get them all in even if it does 
make your expense account look 
big. It will get big these days, 
whether you have it all on your 
books or not, and will only fool 
you. Get it all down, face the 
situation as it is, and make tie 
business carry it, and render y.u 
a fair profit besides. 

Figure your cost of doing busi- 
ness on your sales instead of cost 
of merchandise. 

If you estimate that you can 
sell $50,000 worth of goods during 
the year, then your expense ac- 
count should total not more than 
$10,000. If it does you will show 
no net profit at the end of the 
year. Keep your table of ex- 
pense and sales before you 
throughout the year. Make com- 
parisons at the close of each 
week's business and prove how 
you are living up to your esti- 

Hold regular meetings of your 
sales' staf¥. Let them see what 
must be done to make the year 
successful. Many of them will be 
surprised to know what it costs 
to run a business, and they will 

appreciate what your job as mana- 
ger means. Put the matter up to 
them in the right spirit and you 
will secure their hearty co-opera- 
tion and loyalty. Show them that 
if sales do not keep up the per- 
centage of expense will automatic- 
ally increase, as the items of ex- 
pense are largely fixed and do not 
fluctuate with the sales. Devote 
an entire meeting occasionally to 
the topic of lost sales. Every 
sale that could have been made, 
but that failed in consummation 
for some reason, cuts down your 
volume and increases your per- 
centage of expense on sales. 

At another meeting take up the 
topics of depreciation, general ex- 
pense and bad debts. Get every- 
one to take part in the discussion. 
You may learn something from 
your clerks. There are items of 
expense that your salesmen and 
employes can help keep down if 
you enlist their co-operation. 
Show them that if they carelessly 
break a plowshare or casting that 
costs 80 cents that they will have 
to sell several shares without 
any net profit to make up for the 
one broken. Teach them to be 
careful in the use of .supplies. 
Calculating Your Overhead 
Subdivide your expense account 
into several divisions, such as ad- 
vertising, collections, losses, de- 
preciation, donations, cartage, 
heating, help, light, interest, office 
supplies, postage, fire insurance, 
life insurance, rent, repairs, sal- 
aries, taxes, telephone and tele- 
grams, trade papers, garage, and 
miscellaneous. If you have these 
separate items before you, you 
can discover if any are excessive 
and make an effort to lessen them. 

At the end of each month fill in 
a table of expenses and on such 
items as taxes, heat, insurance and 
other items that are, not dis- 
tributed throughout each month 
of the year, approximate the 
monthly amount and include 
them. Then determine the cost 
of doing business on your sales 
for that particular month. Add 
your expenses to the expense of 
the preceding months of the year, 
and likewise your sales, and de- 

termine the percentage of expense 
for those months. At the end of 
three or four months you will 
have a very accurate estimate of 
your cost of doing business for 
the year, if you haven't an accu- 
rate account of last year's expen- 

If you find that your cost of 
doing business is excessive, you 
are confronted with a situation 
that demands immediate atten- 
tion. Either you must increase 
your volume or mark up, or cut 
down your expenses. If you do 
not do one of these things your 
annual statement at the close of 
the year may not show any net 

A great deal of staple merchan- 
dise is sold at margin less than the 
overhead expense or cost of doing 
business. This means that other 
lines must carry sufficient profit 
to ofifset this loss. To get this 
profit is often a real problem. The 
time to determine the profit is 
when the goods are marked. 

Take your next invoice and sit 
down and mark opposite each item 
the selling price you usually place 
on such items. Figure out the 
amount that this bill of goods 
will bring when all are sold at 
the prices that you have indicated. 
Then determine the cost of doing 
business as it relates to this par- 
ticular invoice, the gross profit and 
then the net profit. You may be 
surprised when you see just how 
little net profit there really is. 

The net profit on some particu- 
lar line of goods may be very 
satisfactory, but you must con- 
sider that you sell a large volume 
at a much less margin of profit. 
For instance, wagons, binders, 
fencing, tractors and automobiles, 
etc. You will be surprised how 
rapidly the sale of goods on which 
there is a small margin of profit 
cuts down your average percent 
age of profit one dealer says: 

Our average profit in 19 days 
say in the month of February was 
32.59. Supposing that the sales 
were $5,000, the cost of the mer- 
chandise sold would be $3,375 and 
the gross profit $1,625. Our cost 
of doing business for last year was 


Canadian Farm Implements 

June, 1922 

21 per cent on sales, which would 
leave a net profit of $575, or llj^ 
per cent. This is a very satisfac- 
tory net profit on sales, but this 
was during the month of Febru- 
ary when we were selling very 
few, if any, large implements that 
show a very small margin of 
profit. To this record of February 
business, let us add just one aver- 
age day's business during the busy 
implement season and notice how 
materially one day's business cuts 
down the percentage of net profit. 

I selected a day in which we 
sold a grain binder, a wagon, a 
large bill of nails, 100 rods of fence 
and $150 worth of miscellaneous 
hardware. The net profit on the 
day's business was only $11.25, or 
2.1 per cent on sales. I added the 
total of this day's business to the 
total for the nineteen days of Feb- 
ruary and found that the net profit 

on the twenty days' business had 
been reduced from 11 5^ to 9.8 per 
cent. You can readily see that 
your net profit account would get 
pretty small if this were carried on 
for a time. This shows that some 
lines must carry a greater profit 
to make up for the loss on staple 

T believe that we should always 
strive to get profit enough on 
every sale to take care of our 
overhead. If we did this we 
M'^ould have more money in the 
bank at the end of the year. 

Install a system of accounting 
that will give you from day to day 
the information about your busi- 
ness that you would like to know. 
It is the most profitable thing that 
you can do. Eliminate the guess- 
work and get on a basis where you 
know exactly what you are doing. 

The Annual Battle With Weeds 

The modern tillage tool is 
the farmer's greatest artillery in 
his annual struiggle to lower 
the losses incident to weed 
growth. Weeds thrive and grow 
where nothing else will. Heat, 
unseasonable cold, hail, any 
combination of the elements, 
don't disturb weed growth. The 
farmer cannot carry on his con- 
tinual fight against weeds unless 
he has the right kind of equip- 
ment. Clean fields are the re- 
sult of using modern cultivators. 
Don't be afraid to inform farm- 
ers of that fact. The old culti- 
vator is a damage instead of a 
help in many cases. A modern 
cultivator soon destroys enough 
-weeds to repay its cost. To do 
without a good cultivator is 
poor economy for your custom- 

The implement dealer should 
know just what the mo'dern 
farmer looks for in a cultivator. 
In the first place he is looking 
for an implement that is easy 
to operate. A good cultivator, 
properly adjusted, is easy on 
both the horses and the operat- 
or. It is easy to exterminate 
weeds with a good cultivator, 
because every part of the imple- 
ment is easily adjusted and mov- 
ed into correct position. 
Quack Grass and Sow Thistles 

The field cultivator, equipped 
with spring gangs, is the most 
satisfactory implement for work- 
ing out the roots of the quack 
grass. These roots are really 
underground stems, and they 
must be brought to the surface 
and allowed to dry up, or be 
raked and burned. As a general 
thing, they are so numerous in 
the ground that it is necessary 
to remove them before the work 

can be continued. It is not 
possible to wofk out the roots 
of the sow thistle as they break 
up very readily. The method 
employed is to keep them from 
forming leaves above ground 
which will starve out the roots. 
The leaves are the stomach of 
the plant. 

A good cultivator is an ef- 
fective exterminator of weeds be- 
cause very few weeds can slip 
through between the shovels. 
The shovels are evenly spaced, 
and when swung sideways they 
continue to cut their full swath 
no matter how far the operator 
swings them. 

The Duck-Foot Cultivator 

On some light soils summer 
fallow can be accomplished 
without the necessity of plow- 
ing, particularly if this type 
is available. This could be used 
in the fall, and early in the 
spring, so as to be certain of 
germinating all the weed seeds, 
and then used often to keep the 
weeds down. If the weeds get 
too much of a start the duck- 
foot cultivator may clog up, but 
where it is used at sufficiently 
close intervals the weeds ma.y 
be entirely eradicated, and .the 
ground left in the best possible 
condition. The rigid condition 
in which the duck-foot cultivator 
leaves the soil prevents blowing, 
except under extreme conditions. 

On soils that are liable to 
bloAv, particularly if there is a 
stubble on the ground, the duck- 
foot would probably be the most 
satisfactory tool to use for sum- 
mer fallow, as the stubble and 
trash would be left on top, to 
protect the sol! from blowing. 

The general purpose cultiva- 
tor can be used as a riding or 

walking implement, a pivot-pole 
cultivator, or a straight and rigid 
cultivator. Close-coupled it does 
the work in sight of the opera- 
tor. It will be found in some 
territories that farmers show a 
preference for cultivator wheels 
which are high and strong and 
with wide concave tires and 
long hub bearings. 

Sales Arguments 
There are numerous sales 
arguments which can be advanc- 
ed in favor of the up-to-date 
cultivator. A point which in- 
terests farmers is quick hill 
dodging. Perfect balance for all 
drivers, no matter whether a 
two hundred pound man or 
small boy happens to operate 
the implements, is of prime im- 
portance in the eyes of the 

In some districts the dealer 
may have calls for heavy duty 
implements which are designed 
for use in sections of the coun- 
try where the ground is hard 
and field conditions such that 
heavy gangs are required. 

It is a good plan for an im- 
plement dealer to make a special- 
ty of the sale of cultivators. We 
cannot find a more popular or 
interesting line. Every farmer 
who grows any kind of cultivat- 
ed crop needs at least one good 
cultivator. This is why oppor- 
tunities for selling cultivators 
are always numerous. 

The cultivator season is now 
at hand. If we will make a 
determined effort to assist farm- 
ers to cope with the weed pest 
we can place a large number of 
cultivators with men who will 
appreciate them. 

Canadian Fairbanks-Morse Show 
Loss in Operations 

The annual report of Canadian 
Fairbanks-Morse Co. with head 
office at Montreal, as issued re- 
cently, shows that the company 
made a loss of $1,425,056 in the 
last fiscal year. This included 
operating loss on branches and the 
Toronto factory of $432,338, in- 
ventory adjustments fand write- 
offs, $790,959; development ac- 
counts written off, $85,156; 
absorption deficit of E & T. 
Fairbanks Co., Ltd., $116,573. In 
1920 the company showed earn- 
ing of $279,563 after deductions, 
but after payment of dividends, 
depreciation, etc., there was a 
deficit of $113,805 to deduct from 
common stock and surplus, leav- 
ing this account $3,726,697. In 
the current report this item is 
down to $2,168,761, a decrease of 
$1,557,938 during the year. 

Current assets are down from 
$7,069,820 to $4,192,391 ; current 
liabilities from $3,531,338 to $1,- 

929,496, and working capital from 
$3,538,432 to $2,261,895. 

In his report H. J. Fuller, 
president of the Company, com- 
mented on the great drop in 
commodity values and the diffi- 
culty experienced in liquidating 
inventories in the face of an 
extraordinary falling off in busi- 

"Our sales in the year 1921," 
he says, "showed a decline of 
more than half from the preced- 
ing year. W orking on a declin- 
ing market as we were through- 
out the year, gross profits show- 
ed a still greater decline, .as well 
as necessarily reflecting the in- 
ventory adjustments at the end 
of the year. The inventories 
were reduced by sales and write- 
downs approximately 40 per 

In the early part of the year 
1921 sales began to show an 
improvement, though still under 
those of the previous year. 
Abnormally low prices of farm 
products in the fall, however, 
affected agricultural and other 
trades to such a degree that de- 
mand declined greatly. 

Portage Plowing Match 

The directors of the Portage 
Plowing Match Association have

the city. The first day will be

tractors. Last year some 25 
tractors competed for the hand-

"The Cheapest Farm Power" 

Sell the Tractor that 

Saves Most Money 

for Your Customers 

FARMERS are more critical of price than ever before. And they are 
right. They should get the most value for their money. You can do 
your customers a service and make profit for yourself by showing them 
that they should buy a tractor that saves them money every day of its life. 

The OilPuU produces the cheapest farm power. This is proved by its 
records on fuel economy, low upkeep and long life. 

It saves money for your customers on fuel, reducing the cost as much as 
39% under average conditions, according to exhaustive expert comparative 
tests. Requires only half the upkeep expense — another saving. Average 
life of OilPuU is over 10 years — a big saving in depreciation. And the pur- 
chase price is the lowest at which such cheap, reliable power can be bought- 

Your customers want power. Whether it comes in the form of a two or 
four-cylinder, kerosene or gasoline burning tractor is not the question. They 
want the cheapest and most reliable power available. They want OilPull 
power, "The cheapest farm power." 

Selling the OilPull is always a satisfsnng job. You know your customers 
will be satisfied. You know they will save money and boost for you. You 
know your profit will remain yours because little service will be necessary. 
And the longer you have the OilPull agency, the easier your sales and profits 
will come. It pays to sell a product that you can believe in yourself and be 
proud of. If you think your locality can be more thoroughly represented, 
write us for details of the OilPull proposition.

Four Vital 

A tractor to produce cheap- 
est power must combine 
the following four factors: 

1 — Lowest Fuel Cost, 

2 — Lowest Upkeep Cost, 

3 — Longest Average Life, 

4 — Reasonable Price. 

OilPull records prove that 
it is the first and only trac- 
tor to combine all four. 



Triple Heat 

A gallon of cheap kerosene 
contains more actual power 
than a gallon of expensive 
gasoline. This is a recog- 
nized fact among experts. 
The problem has been to 
get the power out. 

Triple Heat Control is a 
scientific system of oil econ- 
omy that positively does 
get the power out.

The Very Low Twine Prices 

announced by the BRANTFORD CORDAGE COMPANY LIMITED over two 
months ago mean a much smaller outlay for Binder Twine than for some years 
past. On some grades there is a reduction of 63^c. a pound — one third less than 
last year, or about half the price of four years ago. 

the only surviving strictly Canadian Binder Twine 
Factory in Canada, has had no tariff protection since 
1896, yet is today the largest producer of binder twine 
in the British Empire. These facts alone give the great- 
est testimony to the quality of Brantford Twines. 

Any wise dealer or farmer fully understands that we 
never could have reached our present position as the 
largest Binder Twine Manufacturers in the British Em- 
pire, in the face of keenest competition, if our quality had 
not been the very best. 

Our mills are equipped with the most modern machin- 
ery and devices which give our twines that outstanding 
uniformity, length, strength, firmness and finish which 
mean a saving of a lot of money, time and trouble in the 
harvest field. 

All our twines are submitted to a special treatment to 
make them insect proof.

ies or orders to our Western Office.

this system satisfactory. With 
the new branch they will be in 
excellent shape to maintain the 
high standard of service which 
is a feature of the company. 

The complete line includes the 
following machines: "Water-

Canadian Farm Implements 

June, 1922 

Is this Competition Nearing its 

In the merry implement days 
of the war period, when grain 
prices were at the peak and cash 
sales easy, the sale of implements 
by mail was. a feature that serious- 
ly af¥ected dealers in many dis- 
tricts. In addition came the sale 
of machinery by the farmers or- 
ganizations, but now that times 
have chang-ed there seems little 
likelihood that this form of com- 
petition will maintain its former 
proportions. The farmer's organ- 
izations, and also the mail order 
machine concerns, have lost mon- 
ey in handling farm machinery. 
If the past year has been one of 
terrific strain upon the resources 
of large implement concerns with 
big capital and wide-spread or- 
ganizations, it has lalso had a 
dire efifect upon the direct selling 
firms who had to buy their stocks 
here, there and everywhere, in 
job lots, and who often paid ex- 
ceptionally high prices for the 

The direct selling concern 
which does not operate its own 
factory has in the past had to hunt 
for supply sources at many 
points on the map. 

When it placed an order it paid 
cash for the goods, and often 
they were not of a quality that 
warranted the price paid for pro- 
duction, or the price charged in 
the catalog. This changing from 
factory to factory for supply led 
to a multiplicity of makes and 
types, so much so that, humor- 
ously enough, the farmer's, sale 
organizations today do not, in 
.cases, know where to get repairs 
for the machines they themselves 
sold in bygone years. This, be 
it said, in a territory where imple- 
ment sales are meant to be under 
Farm Machinery Acts, with their 
stipulations regarding the stock- 
ing of repair parts by vendors for 
a given period for machines sold. 

The concerns selling imple- 
ments by catalog, of whatever 
variety, sold them for one of two 
reasons :- To give their customers 
an implement line in addition to 
groceries or clothing, or to prove 
to the down-trodden farmer that 
the implement '^manufacturers 
were the world's greatest bandits. 
Yet time seems to have proven 
that to sell implements — even 
good implements — at a cut 
price does not pay and that 
there is more entailed in im- 
plement merchandising than 
a picture and a price. The day 
is passing when the farmer will 
buy implements at long range 
from a picture book. He has 
proven that pictures are deceptive 
and that price is not so important 
a factor as dependability, effici-

The New Steel Combination 

It is reported that the new 
steel combination projected in 
the United States, is about to 
be completed. Some of the larg- 
est steel manufacturers in that 
country are alleged to have com- 
mitted themselves to join the 
new combination, which would 
have a capital aggregating from 
800 million to 1000 million dol- 
lars. Two companies have al- 
ready consolidated, and it is 
stated that before long the 
measure will include all the in- 
dependent companies. 

It is reported that the U. S. 
Steel Corporation controls 50 
per cent, of the iron and steel 
production of the United States. 
In 1920 the U. S. Supreme Court 
refused to dissolve this alleged 
monopolistic trust upon the 
ground that great public in- 
conveniences would result. 

Assuming that the new com- 
bination takes place, the whole 
steel trade of the United States 
will be under the control of two 

gigantic corporations. What, 
may be asked, will come of the 

The two corporations can by 
agreement absolutely fix prices 
and control the market because 
the tariff shuts out any foreign 
competition. An effort will be 
made to restrain the Indepen- 
dents from going into a merger, 
but even if that be successful, 
the control of the iron and steel 
business of the United States 
will still be vested in a small 
number of corporations. They 
may compete, but they are more 
likely to have price agreements 
of one kind or another. 

The production cost of trac- 
tors and all farm implements 
and equipment depends to a 
very great extent upon the cost 
of iron and steel. Should im- 
mense combinations control the 
supply of iron and steel, the 
effect upon the tractor and im- 
plement prices may be vast, for 
even the largest producers have 
generally to contract for stock 
at the best price they can ^et. 
What will that price be when 
no independent steel and iron 
producers exist? 

Wagons, being used the. year 
around, should be saleable at 
numerous times during the year. 
The dealer should be able to make 
an occasional wagon sale in a sea- 
son when business in other lines 
is dull. 

The real power farming deal- 
er is considerably more than a 
retail merchant. He has some- 
thing more than a tractor, plow 
power farming service to sell — 
a service which once installed 
will do the farm work better, 
cheaper and quicker than it can 
be done with horses and at a 
lower cost for labor and which 
at the same time will assure 
larger crops and bigger bank bal- 
ance at the end of the year. 

When the season has advanc- 
ed to June or July the power 
farming dealer makes selling 
arguments out of the hot horse- 
killing work in the hay fields 
and the harvest fields. He knows 
that these jobs are the hardest 
of the year for both the farmer 
and his horses and he can show 
the farmer that a tractor will 
get this work done in better shape 
and in less time than by any 
other method. The tractor's 
ability to do the heavy work of 
summer and early fall is exactly 
. as good a reason for its purchase 
in July as its plowing ability is 
the reason for a purchase in 
April or September. 

There are other summer jobs, 
not all of them farm work, but 
all of them power work, and all 
done by farmers, which can be 
made to show the farmer that 
he can afford to buy a tractor in 

Road work can be done be- 
tween the haying and harvest 
seasons, new ditches can be run, 
and many other jobs seen to. 

The power farming dealer who 
Avill use these jobs to demon- 
strate the tractor's worth doesn't 
need to depend upon the plow- 
ing season alone to bring him 
sales. When he wants business 
he gets it no matter what the 
season or the work at hand. 

But there is another factor 
fully as important as the power 
farming dealer's aggressive sales 
methods. He must select the 
tractor he is to sell for its 
natural ability to work in every 
season, under the widest variety 
of conditions and on all sorts of 
farm jobs. If he is selling a 
tractor which meets these re- 
quirements he can be sure of a 
summer market and a winter, 
spring and fall market as well. 

Get Business by Going After It. 

Western Canada was never a 
territory prone to pessimij'.m, and 
the "Hverish" outlook of some 
men in the implement trade today 
is without justification. We 
know that the time v/hen tlie far- 
mers ran after dealers for machin- 
ery is past; now the deaier r.ust

do the hunting. To sit still and 
say that no business exists, is the 
lie'st way to assure that none will 
exist. Get out and sell ; the se are 
the days when salesmanship will 
l)ring home the orders. 

With good crops assured in the 
qreat majority of districts ther? 
is no reason why satisfactory 
business can not be secured. But 
it will not be secured withou: ef- 
fort. To say that the farmer has 
quit buying is very questional" Ic. 
Have you quit trying to sell?^ — 
that's the point that cour'ts. 

There is much in mentality, 
and the man who is impressed 
with the idea that sales cannot 
be made will not make them. 

Manufacturers who do not adver- 
tise aggressively today ni.ike a 
great mistake. They only help 
the dealer arrive at a wrong con- 
clusion. Observe the humble 
hen When worms arc scarce, 
she scratches the harder. That 
policy applied to advertising and 
sales effort will assure a resump- 
tion of business. When thii day 
comes that the farmer can oper- 
ate without implements; is the 
time to throw up your hands — 
which, as Euclid says, is aasurd. 
Use some pep and perspiration, 
and you'll find that the fellow 
who goes after the business,

t^ie new territory has been ex- 
cellent this spring, and advance 
orders for harvesting machinery 
are better than last year. Mr. 
Baker states that the improv- 
ed rail facilities in the Dunve- 
gan and Waterhole districts will 
do much to improve these fine 
grain growing areas. 

We regret to report the death 
by accident of Willard M. An- 
derson, of Anderson & Card,

Sask. Mr. Anderson died in hos- 
pital at Moose Jaw from in- 
juries received when his car 
crashed into a pillar in the C. P. 
R. subway. L. Mead, owner of 
the Royal George Hotel, Moose 
Jaw, was in the car with him 
but was unhurt. Mr. Mead 
must bear a charmed life. Last 
fall, while in a car driven by 
Pete Arnott, late manager for 
the Advance-Rumely Co. at 
Regina, an accident took place 
in which Mr. Arnott was killed, 
while Mr. Mead escaped without

Case Announce New 2-3 Plow 

The J. I. Case Threshing Ma- 
chine Co., Racine, Wis., announce 
a new size kerosene tractor to 
be known as the Case 12-20. 
This latest addition to the Case 
line of tractors is built along- 
similar design to the other sizes. 

The idea that prompted the 
Case people to produce this new 
tractor, was to have a tractor of 
practically a 2-plow size,' yet 
one that would pull 3 plows un- 
der ordinary conditions. In this 
manner the efficiency of this 
small tractor is much increased, 
as it stated that it will do 50% 
more Avork than the averag'e 2- 
plow tractor.

The Case 12-20 is recommended 
to handle a 22x36 thresher with 
all attachments, in ordinary 
threshing. It will operate a 12 or 
14-inch silo filler, elevating to 
the average silo. In plowing it 
will handle three 14 inch plows 
under average conditions, plow- 
ing 7 inches deep. In heavier 
work, such as breaking, two 14 
inch plows are recommended. It 
pulls an 8 foot double disk in 
high gear in the average field, 
as well as a 12 foot grain drill 
and an equal width of harrow. 

The manufacturers claim that 
it is a machine of 100% useful- 
ness as an all around farm trac- 
tor, being equally as satisfac- 
tory on the belt as at the draw 
bar work. This tractor has a 
one-piece frame that holds all 
bearings, shafts and gears in 
alignment. The frame is rigid 
and all parts are so balanced that 
there is very little vibration. All 
working parts are enclosed in 
dust proof housin;gs and operate 
in oil. 

The engine in this new size 
tractor is of the vertical, four 
cylinder valve-in-head type. The 
cylinder bore is 4-1/8 inches and 
the stroke is 5 inclies. At norm- 
al governed speed of 1050 R. P. 
M., a maximum brake power of 
25 is attained. The cylinder head 
is removable for cleaning out 
carbon or grinding valves. The 
entire surface of each combus- 
tion chamber is machined

Sold and Used 
Throughout the Dominion 

No farmer would willingly lessen the profits of 
his whole year's work by threshing with a 
worn-out, inefficient rig. Yet he often does it un- 
intentionally. Here is the chance for the McCor- 
mick-Deering Dealer to make a life-long friend 
of the farmer by selling him one of the popular, 
grain-saving McCormick-Deering (International) 

Farmers like the McCormick-Deering because, 
first of all, it gets all the grain there is. It is 
quickly adjustable to Hght or heavy straw and 


will take any kind of grain equally well. The sep- 
arating device is the result of long experience and 
turns out clean grain without waste. The highest 
grade of material, expertly assembled with ac- 
curately fitted self -aligning bearings, assures long 
life and low repair expense. 

r The Titan 10-20 Tractor is equally well-known 
among [farmers, and is a very satisfactory unit 
to sell with the McCormick-Deering Thresher. 
In this outfit you have a complete rig that 
can't be beat. Why not go out and tell the farmers 
about it?

Barney Baker Jobbing Hart-Parr 

The Hart-Parr Company, 
Charles City, announce that 
Barney Baker one of the best 
known tractor men in Western 
Canada has taken the contract 
for jobbing Hart-Parr tractors 
in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. 
Mr. Baker is known to implement 
dealers all over Canada and the 
U. S. as he has been prominently 
connected with several of the 
leading companies, latterly with 
the sale of the Tillsoil tractor. 

Barney has organized a dis- 
tributing company known as the 
Barney Baker Co., Ltd., with 
head office in Hart-Parr build- 
ing at Regina. The business 
for Manitoba will be handled by 
F. N. McDonald Company, 156 
Princess Street, Winnipeg, as 

In a recent interview Mr. Baker 
was very enthusiastic over trac- 
tor prospects in the future. He 
is convinced that the business is 
on the upward swing to big 
sales, and that within five years 
every farm worth while in Can- 
ada will be motorized. Backing 
his judgment which is valuable 
as one who pioneered in the 
tractor industry, Mr. Baker has 
taken on distributing contracts 
for a complete line of power 
farming implements and belt 
power machinery as well as Hart- 
Parr tractors. 

Hart-Parr Reduce Prices 

On June 1st the Hart-Parr 
Company lowered the price of 
the Hart-Parr "30" to $1250 f. 
o. b. Winnipeg, and the price of 
the Hart-Parr "20" to $1070 f. 
o. b. Winnipeg. The company 
have come through the dull time 
in the trade in excellent shape, 
and were not caught with ex- 
cessive inventories. They are 
increasing their production. 

The new price of the Hart- 
Parr "30" is $600 below the peak 
price of 1921, and that of the 
"20" $400 below the peak price 
last year. The company an- 
nounces that the new prices are 
absolutely rock-bottom, and with 
conditions in the labor and ma- 
terial markets, no guarantee is 
given by the company as to the 
length of time the new prices 
will continue. 

U. S. Implement Production In 

A recent report issued by the 
U. S. Department of Agricul- 
ture shows that farm machinery 
to the value of $536,945,000 was 
manufactured in the United 
States during 1920. All but 
$66,626,000 worth of this pro- 
duction was sold at home. The 
data for this report was collect- 
ed from 583 manufacturers. 

Plows and listers were manu- 
factured in the largest numbers, 
the total for the year being 1,- 
361,578. More than 580,000 
cultivating machines were made, 
472,000 planting machines, 411,- 
000 haying machines, and more 
than 200,000 gas tractors. Few- 
fer than 30,000 gas tractors, ac- 
cording to Department figures, 
were made in 1916; and esti- 
mates from other sources show 
that in 1910, just a decade be- 
fore this investigation was made, 
only 4,000 were manufactured. 
The Tractor Industry 

The growth of the tractor in- 
dustry in the United States is 
clearly shown by the figures 
given. The production of trac- 
tors from 1910 to 1915 is esti- 
mated as follows: 1909, 2,000; 
1910, 4,000; 1911, 7,000; 1912, 
11,000; 1913, 7,000; 1914, 10,000; 
1915, 21,000. 

The production from 1916 to 
1920 is recorded from figures 
given by the manufacturers, be- 

1916, 29,670; 1917, 62,742; 
1918, 132,697 ; 1919, 164,590 and 
in 1920 203,207. The heaviest 
exporting of tractors was in 1918, 
when 36,351 were sold abroad 
(including Canada), and in 1920 
29,143 were exported. 

In 1920 the total value of the 
203,207 tractors produced was 
$193,563,000, the largest number 
of a given rating being those 
machines developing 16 to 18 
belt horsepower, of which 107,- 
782 were manufactured. In 1920 
143,542 tractor plows were man- 
ufactured, 87,059 being 2-bottom 
types. Some of the other lead; 
ing lines manufactured were : 
Harrow sections, spike tooth 
pattern, 169,529; 164,586 horse 
discs; 67,095 tractor discs; 6,- 
962 weeders and 31,085 pulver- 
izers. A total of 580,179 culti- 
vators were made, 239,165 mow- 
ers and 84,495 sulky rakes. 

Grain binders totalled 139,- 
372, valued at $24,593,000, of 
these 25,122 were exported. 
Thresher Production 

Wood threshers are listed in 
wood and steel types. Of the 
wood makes, 9,639 were 46 inch 
and under and 3,948 47 inch and 
over. Their value was $12,801,- 
000, of these 1,022 were export-

ed. Steel threshers, 46 inch and 
under, totalled 7,260, and 47 inch 
and over, 1,312. The value was 
$6,258,000. Of this- type 939 ma- 
chines were exported. 

Over 49,000 two-horse " wag- 
ons, and 47,238 wood wheel 
trucks were manufactured. The 
' total number of trucks, wagons 
and buggies exported was 3,810. 
A total of 132,246 buggies were 
turned out in the year 1920, and 
none are reported as sold for 

268,287 stationary and portable 
engines were made, 22,059 being 
sold for export. Over 222,000 
cream separators are the figures 
given for this class of machine. 

Eastern Dealers in U. S. Form 

At a recent meeting in New 
York, the Eastern Federation 
of Farm Machinery Dealers was 
reorganized and hereafter will be 
known as the Eastern Federa- 
tion of Implement Dealers' As- 
sociation. This federation em- 
braces the New England, New 
York Eastern, Virginia and 
North Carolina associations. 

If It Be Glory 

We note in the recent number 
of the new publication issued by 
the United Farmers of Alberta a 
full page advertisement of the 
United Grain Growers with the 
arresting heading: "Still the Main 
Factor in Lowering Prices." 

Below are quoted some of the 
prices, which are assuredly low — 
if not too low to be sensible. We 
wonder, however, just how big a 
factor the U. G. G. has been in 
lowering prices, or if they are 
this factor, has the glory been 
a profitable one. As a matter of 
fact, one of the leading full line 
implement houses lowered its 
prices about three months before 
the avalanche in price which was 
instituted so as to give the U. G. 
G. its place in the sun in the 
farm equiprrient field. 

Ford Tractors Giving Satisfac- 

In our May issue appeared a 
paragraph which implied tliat 
the Fordson tractor was sold on 
a price basis only, and lacked 
quality and endurance in service. 
We regret the publication of 
this paragraph, inasmuch as the 
Ford Motor Co., Winnipeg, ad- 
vise us that their tractors, of 
which several hundred have been 
sold this season, wherever used, 
are giving very satifactory ser- 
vice to their owners. 


111 addition to the sc^ores of small fairs 
in the towns throughout the Canadian 
West, there are five principal exhibitions 
this season, at all of which it is expected 
large machine and implement displays will 
be made. The dates for the leading fairs 
which follow, show that each exhibition 
lasts a week, there being no overlapping. 

In the prairie provinces the first exhibit 
opens in Calgary on June 3Qth, and the 
last closes at Regina on August 5th. This 
enables exhibitors to swing right around a 
big circle. Dates for this year's exhibi- 
tions are as follows: — ■ 


(Calgary, .June :iOth to..July 7th. 

Edmonton, Jul}' 8th to 1.5th. 

Saskatoon, July 17th to 22nd. 

Brandon, July 24th to 29th. 

Regina, July :jlst to August 5th. 
British Columbia 

The principal exhibitions held in British 
Columbia are those in Vancouver, Victoria 
and New Westminster. There are in addi- 
tion quite a number of fall fairs held in 
centres like Chilliwack, Kamloops, Kelow- 
na, Vernon, etc. Dates for the former 
are : — 

Vancouver, August 19th to 26th. 
New Westminster, September 11th to 

Victoria, September 18th to 23rd. 
Ontario and Quebec 

The Canadian National Exhibition is, 
of course, the largest exhibition in the 
East but there are also important fairs 
held at London, Ottawa, Sherbrooke and 
Quebec. Dates for the larger fixtures are 
as follows: — 

Toronto, August 26th to Sept. 9th. 

London, Sept. 9th to 16th. 

Kingston, Sept. 19th to 23rd. 

Quebec, Sept. 2nd to 9th. 

Sherbrooke, August 26th to Sept. 2nd.

In his Budget brought forward on May 
23rd, the Minister of Finance, Mr. Field- 
ing, said that it was not proposed to 
reduce the tariff on American goods with 
the exception of one pr two items, among 
which are agricultural implements coming 
in from the United States. The reductions 
which were proposed had been made 
generally under the British preference 
provisions, and not in that section of the 
tariff applying to the United States. 

He reported that the Government had 
decided to repeal the act which required 

that goods imported by Canada must be 
marked with the country of origin. 

In the farm industry business Mr. 
Fielding announced reductions of customs 
duties as follows: 

Mowing machines, harvesters, binders 
and reapers, reduced under the general 
tariff 23^ per cent. 

Cultivators, harrows, horse rakes, seed 
drills, manure spreaders and weeders 
redii-jed under the general tariff per

ential and 5 per cent, under the general 

Dairy tin hollow- ware reduced 2 J4 per 
cent, and 5 per cent. 

Automobiles ■ are now entitled to be 
entered as farmers effects by farmers only. 


It may be noted that the budget pro- 
posals give a reduction of 2 J/^ per cent .on the 
implements that bulk largest in imports. 

In the eleven month period of the last 
fiscal year, for which figures are available, 
it is shown that there were $3,000,000 
worth of the implements imported on 
which a, 2)4. per cent, reduction is being 
given, which amounts to the trifling sum 
of $99,000, while $908,000 worth of imple- 
ments on which the 5 per cent, reduction 
is being made, a saving of $45,000 in duty 
would be effected on that basis. Alto- 
gether, on the basis of last year's imports, 
$144,000 in revenue would be saved by 
these reductions. 


The budget proposals will without 
doubt mean higher priced cars, when the 
duty and increased sales tax are con- 
sidered. In fact the reductions made in 
the past year may be more than offset by 
the increase. 

Canadian built cars selling for $1,200 
and less must now bear a combined sales 
and. excise tax of 9J^ per cent, while im- 
ported cars of the same price will face a 
tax of 11 per cent., against the present 
sales tax of 3 and 4 per cent., respectively. 

The sales tax is increased by 50 per 
cent., which will have a marked effect 
upon the price of the more expensive 
machines and implements. 

The tax on imported passenger automo- 
biles is 5 per cent, up to $1,200 value, 
and 10 per cent, for cars over $1,200 value. 

The stamp tax on cheques will be 2 
cents for every cheque up to $50, and 2 
cents additional for every additional $50. 

An insurance tax of 5 per cent, will be 
placed on premiums paid unlicensed com- 
panies. The tax on telegrams is increased 
from 1 cent to 5 cents. 

Transfers of stock are increased from 2 
cents to 5 cents per share. 

The increase of the sales tax by 50 per 
cent will have a marked effect upon the 
cost of higher priced machines, such as 
tractors and threshers.

Tractor Sales in the Canadian 

In connection with the sale of 
farm machinery, the records of 
the leading jobbers in the Can- 
adian West, as covering 1921, 
show that last year the average 
volume would only be about 33 
to 40 per cent of. the previous 
year. This percentage of drop 
in volume also held true in re- 
lation to tractor business, as is 
disclosed by a recent investiga- 
tion made by the Nor'-West 
Farmer in regard to the number 
of tractors sold by dealers in 
Western Canada during 1921. 

The figures show that in 1921 
the total number of tractors 
sold in Manitoba, Saskatchewan 
and Alberta was 3,428 internal 
combustion tractors and 97 steam 
tractors, a total of 3,525 ma- 

The total sales in Manitoba 
were 1,057 tractors; in Saskat- 
chewan 1,655, and in Alberta 716 
tractors. In Manitoba 30 steam- 
ers sold ; in Saskatchewan 54, 
and in Alberta 13. 

In contrast to this, the sales 
for the last five years are of in- 
terest. In 1917, 5,000 tractors 
were sold; in 1918, 7,5i0O ; in 
1919, 9,000; in 1920, 10,279, and 
in 1921, 3,525. 

Estimates of the number of 
tractors owned in the Canadian 
West vary. The above farm 
publication estimates that the 
total ownership is about 30,000. 
We believe that this is a very 
conservative figure, and grant- 
ing a reasonable number discard- 
ed annuallv as worn-out, there 
should be 'from 35.000 to 38,000 
tractors in use. It is to be re- 
gretted that the Bureau of 
Statistics at Ottawa does not 
record, from the census esti- 
mates if possible, the number of 
machines owned in the various 

In Western Canada the aver- 
age period of operation for trac- 
tors owned is 88 days in the 
year. This comprises an aver- 
age of 37 days plowing, 19 days 
threshing. 22 days on other land 
work, and odd jobs estimated at 
10 days in the year. ■ It is also 
estimated that the number of 
threshing machines operated by 
steam engines is only 17 per 
cent, of the total. 

Replies to a questionnaire re- 
cently circulated among tractor 
owners show a general feeling 
of satisfaction among farmers as 
. regards dealer service, operation 
of machines and return on the 
investment. 70% of the owners 
reported that they used their 
tractors as much as ever in 1921. 
85% reported that another trac- 
tor would be bought whenever 

it was necessary. 60% use the 
tractor for both field and belt 
work, only 12% use it for field 
work only. 

This report from tractor users 
seems to place doubt upon the 
recent publicity drive for horse 
use as shown in the advertising 
of the Canadian Dept. of Agri- 
culture. In connection with the 
facts on the economy of horse 
use in this advertising, as op- 
posed to the tractor, a correspon- 
dent sent us the following critic- 
ism : 

This gentleman claims that the 
bulk of the advertising being 
issued is a rehash of a letter 
written by Wayne Dinsmore, 
secretary of the Horse Associa- 
tion of America, to C. S. Noble, 
of the Noble Foundation Farms 
in Alberta. It is also pointed 
out that in Canada the average 
cost of stubble plowing by aver- 
age operators (not experts) is 
$1.25 per acre. One farmer 

who keeps records gives his cost 
per acre as 74 cents. Many 
owners give fuel and oil costs 
of only 55 cents per acre. 

In the original letter from Mr. 
Noble, it is stated that "we have 
not yet been able to bring our 
horse power up to the point 
where the work can be done at 
the proper season." This state- 
ment does not appear in the 
advertising of the Live Stock 

In concluding his letter this 
correspondent says : 

"The fact that there is not an 

agricultural college in Canada or 
the United States which does 
not include in its curriculum a 
course in tractors, tractor mac- 
chinery and power farming and 
that increasing time is being de- 
voted to these subjects is 
abounding evidence that motor- 
ization is a vital factor in mod- 
ern agriculture." 

The Tractor and Implement 
Blue Book 

We have just received from 
the publishers of "Farm Machin- 
ery — Farm Power," St. Louis, 
Mo., the 1922 issue of their 
"Tractor and Implement Blue 
Booik". This handy pocket size 
dictionary is an excellent ready 
reference book for all interested 
in tractors and farm equipment. 

It lists all lines of farm ma- 
chinery produced in the United 
States giving names of manu- 
facturers and the trade name of 
the implement. The tractor 
section not only 'gives complete 
specifications of all tractors man- 
ufactured but also lists and 
specifications of tractor operated 
machinery, such as plows, 
threshers, silo fillers, etc. This 
useful book costs but $1.00 and 
is well worth, many times the

U. S. Implement Exports In 

The exports of March 1922, 
in the United States were 25 per 
cent, less than in the same 
month in 1921. The total value 
of implements sent out of the 
country was $3,200,296. It is 
shown that 475 tractors were 
exported and 41 crawler or 
track-laying tractors. 

During March the U. S. ex- 
ported 4,471 passenger cars and 
590 motor trucks. 

Appointed Manager For Ault- 
man-Taylor Machinery Co. 

J. A. Christensen has been 
appointed manager of the West- 
ern Canadian head office of the 
Aultman-Taylor Machinery Co., 
which is located at Portage la 
Prairie. He succeeds Mr. Kane, 

Mr. Christensen, who is well 
known to the trade in Manitoba 
and Saskatchewan, has been 
with the Aultman & Taylor 
organization for over twelve 
years. He first entered the trac- 
tor business with the Gas Trac- 
tion Company, at Minneapolis, 
which is his native city, and 
in 1910 he joined the Aultman, 
and Taylor Co. and later, 
•in 1912, was transferred to 
the Canadian organization. He 
was located in Saskatchewan 
territory, where for five years he 
took care of field work and also 
conducted schools of instruction 
carried on by his company. 

In 1917 he was connected with 
the sales end of the business in 
Saskatchewan, and in 1920 he 
opened the company's branch as 
a sub-branch of the Portage 
head office in the West. In 1921 
he was appoitjted assistant man- 
ager of the cojnpany at Portage 
la Prairie, and on May 1st, 1922, 
was promoted to the important 
position of branch manager. 

With his wide experience in 
the tractor and thresher trade 
and thoroughly conversant with 
Western Canadian requirements 
and conditions, we believe that 
Mr. Christensen will be a dis- 
tinct asset to his company in 
his new post. He is well known 
to the trade especially in Sask- 
atchewan territory where he 
was located for over ten years. 
Mr. Christensen reports that the 
company control the West Can- 
adian business from the Portage 
office, and have sub-branches at 
Regina and Calgary. 

The Aultman-Taylor line 'of 
tractors and threshers comprises 
tractors in 15-30, 22-45 and 30- 
60 h. p. ; and threshers in the 
following sizes: 23x36; 27x42; 
32x50; 36x56 and 42x64. The 
company are now completing 
tests on a new type tractor 
which, it is stated, is a great 

Recently J. B. Willis, vice- 
president and general sales man- 
ager of the company at Mans- 
field, Ohio, spent six weeks at 
the company's branch at Port- 
age la Prairie. Mr. Willis . re- 
ports a great improvement in 
tractor and thresher demand in 
the United States and believes 
that, granted a good crop, norm- 
al business will be done in West- 
ern Canada this Fall.

Cut ^ 



Hart-Parr Company has, for twenty-one years, led the world in tractor quality. 
This price cut is made on the same quality tractor, with many improvements, which in 
the last few years has spectacularly won the economy and power tests. 

Just think of a $600 cut on this tractor from the 1921 price. Only our exceptional 
financial condition and our ability to build the Hart-Parr "30" in sufficient quantities 
to meet the demand which the new price will create, permits us to make this reduction. 

We are determined to maintain, not only "our lead in the tractor business, but to price 
the Hart-Parr "30" so low that every farmer can own one. This new price gives the world 
the cheapest farm power known. 

New Contract Best Ever Offered 

It gives the dealer an exclusive territory, large or small, as desired. It is very liberal 
in discounts. It provides for extreme co-operation in sales, advertising and service. 

This price reduction will be advertised in farm papers throughout Canada. We have no inven- 
tory on hand. The demand will tax the output of our large, modern factory to the limit. The Hart- 
Parr Contract is going to be a mighty profitable one. Someone in your vicinity is going to see 
the wonderful opportunity it offers. If you want it, act quick; write or wire now for territory res-

New Business 

A new and inter- 
esting booklet on 
silo fillers is now 
ready for distribu- 
tion. Every dealer 
should have a 
copy. Write for 
yours today. 

WITH new silos going up in every direction, and less than half of the present silo 
owners filling their own silos, the market for Case silo fillers offers an unusual 
opportunity for dealers. 
Farmers have not realized fully the advantage of being able to fill their silos at the right 
time, and to fill them completely. They are rapidly coming to understand and appreciate 
those advantages, and they are buying Case silo fillers because : 
There is a size to meet every requirement. 
They can be operated by farm tractors and engines. 

They have great capacity and will fill any silo in the short time when the corn is at its 
best. ^ 
They can be set and fed rapidly. 

They cut uniform lengths. Case-cut silage packs and keeps well. 
They can be used for neighborhood jobs, bringing in cash returns. 
They can be transported easily and safely. 
They are safe to handle ^d operate. 
They last for years. 

There are few machines that pay a farmer better than a silo filler and, at this time of 
year, their sale offers progressive dealers a profitable business opportunity. 

We have new and better selling arrangements on silo fillers to offer progressive dealers.

The Possibility For Silos Sales 

It will pay every dealer in 
Western Canada to tell 
farmers. what the silo idea stands 
for. It pays to convert farmers 
to the silo. Before silos were 
introduced about forty per cent, 
of a corn crop was wasted, be- 
cause there was no way in which 
the full feeding value of the 
stalks could be conserved. Cut- 
ting a corn crop into fodder 
didn't solve the problem ; for fod- 
der is a bulky feed to handle, 
rapidly loses its nutrients when 
left in the field, and as a rule 
the most of the stolks an left 
uneaten. All this means un- 
necessary labor and waste; the 
silo eliminates waste by permit- 
ting the farmer to make pa'at- 
able feed of th.e corn stalks, as 
well as the ears and leaves. 

There is a disposition on the 
part of farmers to consider the 
silo as a necesF.ary improvement 
on tvery well managed farm. 
There is no longer any doubt 
regarding the advantages it of- 
fers. Under existing conditions 
silage is necessary for the econ- 
omical feeding of live stock, 
and is especially desirable for 
the profitable production of milk 
and beef. The results of thou- 
sands of feeding experiments car- 
ried out on farms with silage as 
a part of the ration gives con- 
clusive proof of its great value 
to the man who handles live 
stock. It is interesting to note 
that the silo ofifers more pos- 
sibilities for increasing profits 
than any other structure which 
can be erected on the farm. It 
•proAddes a safe and convenient 
place to store all the crop, as- 
sists the farmer to utilize other 
feeds, such as straw, and permits 
him to keep more live stock on 
the farm, which gives a larger 
supply, of manure for fertilizing 
the soil. The best way to en- 
sure economical and succulent 
feed is to store a corn crop in 
the silo. The silo will take care 
of your corn crop and leave the 
field clear for early fall plowing. 

Under existing conditions, it 
is necessary to make good use of 
a corn crop in order to secure 
a satisfactory profit. The way 
to secure maximum returns is 

to build a good silo, and make 
the corn crop into ensilage when 
the ears are nicely glazed. The 
sorghum crops make high grade 
ensilage if allowed to mature be- 
fore putting into the silo. Sor- 
ghum crops, cut too green, will 
make acid silage. 

Some farmers have not built 
silos because they haven't got 
the right view point regard- 
ing the value of ensilage as a 
feed for live stock. Some farm- 
ers do not use ensilage because 
they think the work of filling a 
silo will interfere with other 
farm operations. A little con- 
sideration 6f the matter will show 
that it is better to rush opera- 
tions a day or two, and have a 
supply of good feed at hand 
ready for use at any time, in- 
stead of hauling a few shocks of 
fodder day after day. 

The fact of the matter is a silo 
saves much labor. It not only 
enables its owner to feed more 
cattle to the acre of corn, but 
also' saves the labor expense of 
one man to every herd of cattle. 
At a conservative estimate the 
silo increases the value of a corn 
crop one-third ; this is an im- 
portant item on high-priced 

Ensilage Invaluable Feed 

A farmer cannot appreciate 
the value of succulent feed until 
he has introduced it into the 
ration for his live stock. Suc- 
culent feed is not only nourish- 
ing, but assists in keeping the 
animal's digestive system in con- 
dition for properly assimilating 
flesh building elements. Silage 
is especially valuable for the 
dairy. It is suitable either for 
fall and winter feeding, or for 
use in the summer should pas- 
tures become short. Most dairy- 
men agree that a cow will give 
more milk on a silage ration 
than when fed solely on dry 
feed. Good silage not only pro- 
duces a heavy flow of milk, but 
also produces milk which gives 
a s"ood return of butter fat. 
Without silage it is difficult to 
balance a ration for dairy cows 
in winter. There are instances 
where good milk cows will pay 
without silage, but the profits 

will more than double with the 
use of silage in the ration. 

When feeding silage to dairy 
cows it is advisable to have some 
feed to go with it which is strong 
in protein. Either alfalfa or 
clover* hay can be used to ad- 
vantage. Cow pea hay is also 
satisfactory. Concentrated pro- 
tein feeds which are suitable for 
balancing the silage ration are 
cotton seed meal and linseed 

The aim of the dairyman is 
to use a ration which is econ- 
omical and elTective for produc- 
ing milk. He will find that corn 
silage is the cheapest form of 
carbohydrates, and that legume 
hay furnishes an economical 
form of protein. While the 
quantity of milk a cow produces 
depends largely upon her type 
and natural ability, the ration 
given must be adapted for the 
requirements of her system. She 
needs succulent, palatable feed. 
Silage supplies this. An acre of 
corn silage is equal in its feeding 
value to at least four acres of 
pasture, and in many instances 
is equal to five or six acres. 
Profitable Rations 
A dairy cow will use from 
thirty to forty pounds of silage 
per day, depending upon her 
size. A ration composed of 
silage, thirty-five pounds; corn 
meal, three pounds ; legume hay, 
ten pounds; oats, three pounds 
and four pounds of bran is un- 
usually efTective for producing 
a maximum flow of rich milk. 

Silage is noted for its ability 
to put fat on the steer. This 
is why so many farmers are 
planning to put up enough en- 
silage this season to permit them 
to feed cattle economically dur- 
ing the autumn and winter. A 
thousand pound steer will eat 
about thirty-five pounds of silage 
per day. He needs from six to 
eight pounds of legume hay 
along with this quantity of ensil- 
age, together with a grain mix- 
ture of corn and cotton seed or 
linseed meal. It usually hap- 
pens that the cheapest gains are 
made on small grain rations, 
the quantity of grain feed per 
steer ranging from four to seven 

pounds. Silage in the steer's 
ration insures rapid, economical 

Silage made from well-matur- 
ed crops, and which is not 
mouldy or frozen, gives good re- 
sults when fed to sheep. Horses 
and mules are fed bright silage 
with good results. 

The hog raiser secures eco- 
nomical gains by using silage. 
He finds this palatable, succu- 
lent feed especially suited to the 
requirements of brood sows and 
stock hogs. 

Corn, which will produce six- 
ty bushels per acre, makes about 
twelve tons of silage per acre. 
Kaffir corn will prodiuce from 
seven, to ten tons per acre, while 
cow peas usually make from 
four to six tons of silage per 

Observer Reports on Russia 

In view of the varying char- 
acter of press cables from Russia 
concerning agricultural condi- 
tions, first hand information on 
this subject, which is of world- 
wide importance, will be received 
with interest, especially from a 
Harvester man. T. H. Anderson, 
for many years connected with the 
Harvester Company's Russian- 
business, and S. G. McAllister, 
in charge of European manufac- 
turing, accompanied by A. C. Ban- 
ner, whom many will remember 
as an old-timer in the foreign ser- 
vice of the company, visited Rus- 
sia last fall. 

"I found on my recent visit to 
Russia," said Mr. Anderson, "that 
press reports in general during 
the past three years have pictured 
conditions in agricultural Russia 
more pessimistically than t found 
them. The real wealth of Russia 
is in its agriculture, and in the 
mines and forests, which are prac- 
tically intact. The breaking dcv.'n 
of transportation has prevented 
the movement of grain from gen- 
erously cropped sections tj the 
starving provinces, and when 
the Russian farmer gets proper 
equipment to till his land he'll 
come back."

Legge Appointed President of 
International Harvester Co. 

At a meeting of the Board- of 
Directors, held to elect officers 
for the ensuing- year, Alexander 
Legge was vmanimously elected 
the Company's president. This 
action was taken after Harold 
F. McCormick had declined re- 
election and had nominated Mr. 

Harold F. McConuick was el- 
ected chairman of the newly- 
created executive committee. 
This committee was elected from 
the directoral body and consists 
also of: Cyrus H. McCormick, 

President, International Harvester 

chairman of the Company; Alex- 
ander Legge, president ; William 
D. McHugh, general counsel ; 
John P. Wilson, consulting 
counsel. This committee is 
" vested with the powers of the 
Board of Directors, when the 
Board is not in session. The 
other officers elected are : Vice 
Presidents, H. F. Perkins, A. E. 
McKinstry, and H. B. Utley; 
general counsel, William D. Mc- 
Hugh, George A. anney; comp- 
troller, W. M. Reay; consulting 
counsel, John P. Wilson. 

Harvester men will feel a 
positive sense of inspiration in 
the story of Mr. Legge's steady 
rise from a collector's duties 
thirty-one years ago to the Com- 
pany's principal executive office. 

From the inauspicious posi- 
tion of collector in a remote 
branch office to the president's 
chair in one of the far flung in- 
dustries of the country — that is 
the story of Alexander Legge 
who yesterday was elected head 
of the International Harvester 
Company, to succeed Harold F. 

Mr. McCormick declined re- 
election to the presidency of the 
Harvester Company and nomin- 
ated Mr. Legge to succeed him. 

and Mr. Legge was at once un- 
animously elected. 

Alexander Legge's career has 
been one of hard work, the story 
of which would make pithy ma- 
terial for a business novel. It 
is said of him that his advance 
has been as steady as the pass- 
ing of time. His kindly, brusque ♦ 
manner,^ say his associates, and 
his rugged statute — he is 6 feet 
2 inches tall and built propor- 
tionately — is known to thou- 
sands of Harvester company 

Harold F. McCormick Retiring 
President, Said: 

"The chang-e in the presidency 
of the Company and the creation 
of an executive committee have 
been in contemplation for more 
than a year. I felt that I could 
give more time to the policies of 

HAROLD F. Mccormick, 

Cliairman, Executive Committee 
International Harvester Co. 

the Company and the larger 
questions which arise from time 
to time under the new arrange- 
ment than was possible while I 
was president of the Company. 
I do not contemplate any dim- 
inution 'in my interest in or 
service to the Company. 

"The Company is singularly 
fortunate in having Mr. Legge 
for its President. His great 
ability, faithful service and un- 
bounded loyalty and zeal for the 
Company make it a pleasure to 
serve with him in administering 
the business of the Company. We 
have been working together 
since 1896 and I have for him a 
deep personal friendship." 
With Harvester Co. 30 Years 
Mr. Legge has been connected 
with the harvester industry for 
more than thirty years. He 
made his start as collector of 
farmers' paper, selling agri- 
cultural implements on the side, 
in 1891, in the Omaha branch of 

the then McCormick Harvester 

In 1894 he was made collection 
manager in charge of farmers' 
paper, in the Council Bluffs office 
of the McCormick company. In 
1898 he was made branch man- 
ager at Council Bluffs. 

A few years before this Har- 
old F. McCormick, then a youth 
just out of college, set out to 
learn the business. Mr. Mc- 
Cormick went first into the ma- 
chine shops of the then McCor- 
mained for a kw cmfwyp shr 
mick company, where he re- 
mained for a time learning this 
end of the industry. Later he 
went to the Council Bluffs office, 
a student of collections and 
salesmanship, and it was here he 
met Alexander Legge. 

The two men soon became 
warm friends — a friendship which 
has weathered the years. Mr. 
McCormick returned to Chicago 
in 1897 and in 1898, about a year 
later, came Mr. Legge's appoint- 
ment as branch manager at 
Council Bluffs. In 1899 he was 
called to Chicago and made 
inanager of the collection depart- 
ment of the old McCormick 
Harvester Company. 

From this time on Mr. Legge's 
advance was rapid. In 1902, 
when the International Har- 
vester Company was formed 
through the consolidation of the 
McCormick company, the Deer- 
ing company and a number of 
smaller concerns, Mr. Legge was 
appointed assistant manager of 
domestic sales. 

In 1906 came his appointment 
as assistant general manager of 
the International Harvester 
Company; and in 1913 he became 
general manager. He was ap- 
pointed vice president and gen- 
eral manager in 1919, the posi- 
tion he has occupied up until his 
. election as president.

Conditions Improve in U.S. 

Reports from the U.S. National 
Association Farm Equipment 
Manufacturers show that imple- 
ment business in that country 
steadily improves. Dealers are 
not ordering in advance of re- 
quirements, however, and farmers 
are buying conservatively. Never- 
theless, there seems to be a better 
tone evident than was the case a 
few months ago, and even those 
companies whose shipments thus 
far in 1923 do not equal those of 
the corresponding period last year 
find cause to anticipate a greater 
volume of business during the re- 
maining months of 1923 than was 
the case last year.

The old decision regarding 
donations to fairs was approved 
and several matters of import- 
ance dealt with. The leading 
feature of the meeting was an 

address by the guest of the day, 
H. W. Hutchinson, vice-pres. 
of the Sawyer-Massey Co., Hamil 

In a thoughtful talk Mr. 
Hutchinson compared the old 
days in the industry with the 
present, outlining the difficulties 
that had been the lot of both 
wholesalers and manufacturers 
during the past years. He be- 
lieved that real salesmanship was 
now the greatest need, for the 
days of ea'sy buying were gone, 
possibly for good. He, however 
saw no cause for pessimism, for 
the country that can produce 
two billion three hundred and 
twenty six million dollars worth 
of agricultural products had a 
solid base and would carry on. 
And this was done when we 
have but one-twelfth of the land 
under cultivation. 

The speaker believed that pro- 
fits would be small this year as 
the business would be limited. 
The main thought would be to 
turn inventory into cash or re- 
ceivables of good character. 

Prices, said Mr. Hutchinson, 
would not go lower than pre- 
sent planes for some time, as 
steel was stiff in price and ship- 
ments were slow showing a 
demand. The speaker was heart-

Co-operation Between Town and 
Country Essential for Busi- 
ness Betterment 

Following a month spent with 
the Better Farming Trains which 
traversed Manitoba, Prof. P. G. 
Holden, director of Agricultural 
Extension work for the Interna- 
tional Harvester Company and 
one of the leading agricultural ex- 
perts in North America, address- 
ed members of the Bankers' As- 
sociation, Board of Trade and 
Technical Agriculturists in Win- 
nipeg, May 31st. 

Prof. Holden, in a remarkably 
interesting address, shov. fd clear- 
ly that the farmer^ in the Cana- 
dian \¥est must ^-eak away from 
the one crop system and change 
to the diversified and livestock 
farming systems. -He instanced 
how better farming methods and 
mixed farming, with proper crop 
rotation, had built up communi- 
ties in the United States. The 
city has obligations to the. coun- 
try beyond selling it goods. He 
believed that each community 
should put in a Board of Trade 
or Chamber of Commerce, a Com- 
munity Club and a Bureau of 

He urged business men to di- 
rect their attention to helping the 
farmer acquire pure-bred live- 
stock, the building of silos, the 
growing of alfalfa and feed. They 
should get together a bunch of 
prominent business men, bankers 
and merchants, to travel over the 
province and study conditions. 
Winnipeg should not feel tbat its 
duties ended in this province. It 
would be an excellent thing if 
Winnipeg could help other places 
in the province to make out such 
a programme. That would be 
a wonderful movement. In con- 
nection with such propaganda 
he argued that it would be a good 
thing if agricultural colleges and 
such institutions could have pos- 
tal franking privileges. 

A Short-Sighted Policy 

The efforts of the business iiv 
terests which suffer through such 
replacement of horses "as has oc- 
curred and will continue to 
place are as futile to prevent the 
continued and increasing use of 
tractors and trucks as an atternpt 
to sweep back the tide of the 
ocean wih a whisk broom. Sim- 
ilar efforts have been made by 
various interests against practi- 
cally every modern invention. 
The owners of sailing vessels op- 
posed the introduction of steam- 
ships; stage coach owners, as 
well as boat owners, opposed the 
laying of the railroads; the rail- 
roads opposed the laying of elec- 
tric lines ; the telegraph compan- 
ies opposed the telephones; the 
cradlers opposed the reapers, and 
so on throughout a long list. In 
every case the men who felt that 
their business would slip away 
from them or be injured by the 
new inventions did everything in 
their power to discredit and op- 
pose them. We look back upon the 
men who opposed such inventions 
as short-sighted and unpatriotic, 
men who placed their personal 
gains above 'the welfare of the 
masses and who, instead of recog- 
nizing the situation as it actu- 
ally existed and falling in line 
with the improved devices which 
would have resulted to theii own 
financial benefit and at the same 
time been of much -greater bene- 
fit to the community, wasted 
their efforts and money in trying 
to prevent the inevitable. The 
members of the Horse Association 
and those who are lending their 
influence towards such propagan- 
da will in a few years be looked 
upon in exactly the same man-

Motherwell Supports Power 

On page 12 of our May issue 
we commented on the advertis- 
ing put out by the Department 
of Agriculture, containing figures 
indicating that the use of horse 
power on the farm was both 
preferable and cheaper than 
power farming. As we pointed 
out, the figures used were very 
misleading and altogether in- 

The Hon. W. R. Motherwell, 
Minister of Agriculture, reached 
Winnipeg July 3rd on a tour of 
the West in the interests of his 
department, and members of the 
V/holesale Implement Dealers' 
Association got in touch with 
him, anid' he very courteously 
agreed to meet them in the Board, 
of Trade Building. 

Notwithstanding the short 
notice, a very full attendance 
of the Wholesale Implement 
Dealers' Association was pres- 
ent to meet him. There was a 
very full and friendly discussion 
of the situation. The Hon. Mr. 
Motherwell said that while the 
advertisement had not received 
his personal attention, he felt 
that there were statements in 
it which should not have been 
made. He pointed out the fact 
that on his own farm he used 
both horse power and mechan- 
ical power, and had no hesita- 
tion in saying that without the 
use of the tractor on his farm, 
work would be greatly retarded 
and satisfactory results could not 
have been realized. He especial- 
ly asked the Association to con- 
sider his position in the matter. 

In the short time that has 
been at his disposal in Ottawa, 
he has not as yet been able to 
get the Department fully organ- 
ized. He pointed out the diffi- 
culty of the Departme:it work 
at Ottawa dealing with the en- 
tire country, as compared with 
the Provincial work in Regina 
v.'hen he was only dealing with 
the one province. 

The general consen.sus of 
opinion in the meeting was that, 
so far as the Westerti Provinces 
are concerned, the tractor and 
power farming are practically 
indispensable. The Hon. Mr. 
Motherwell expressed frankly 
his personal opinion that a com- 
bination of both horse power 
and mechanical power were vital 
to the success of farming in the 
Western Provinces. 

A very hearty vote of thanks

ESTABLISHED good will through contin- 
ued performance is the greatest asset any 
business can have. The good will attached to 
a product is invariably reflected in increased 
sales and prestige for the dealer who handles it. 

For seventy years E-B farm implements have 
been recognized leaders. In mechanical oper- 
ation, in results, in economy, the E-B line has 
established a reputation as "the best there'js." 

E-B built the first successful four-cylinder ker- 
osene-burning tractor. Today the E-B 12-20 is 

the outstanding value in the tractor field. Its 
conservative rating of 12 h. p. at the drawbar 
and 20 h. p. at the belt is ample for every 
farm need. 

E-B tractors have always been moderately 
priced— but at the new reduced prices are 
a still greater tractor value.

A Proven, Profitable Success 

No one who has the shghtest 
regard for the truth can assert 
that the tractor and truck have 
been anything but a genuine suc- 
cess. The early models of both, 
it is true, were far from being all 
that could be desired, but in con - 
sidering the economic value of 
any machine one cannot consider 
the machine of a past day, but 
must judge by those of the pres- 
ent. However, trucks and trac- 
tors in the past few years have 
been profitable in the majority of 
cases. It is safe to say that there 
is a smaller percentage of cases 
where losses occur through the 
use of trucks and tractors than 
through the use of horses. Far- 
mers and business men do not 
buy new machines simplybecausc 
they are approached by good 
salesmen, but because they recog- 
nize their own needs. The man 
who sells horses or who sells 
goods to be used with them does 
not have the same realization of 
the expenses and shortcomings of 
animal power as the man who 
uses the horses. , .A few instances 
where men have lost money 
through the use of trucks and 
tractors are made much of l^y the 
man who is attempting to discredit 
the improved power and Avho is 
prejudiced in favor of horses. 
The same man, however, will 
overlook the thousands of cases 
where farmers have lost heavi- 
ly through the use of horses not 
only because of their inefficiency 
and high cost but through tiiir 
premature death. They conveni- 
ently forget the various epi'dem- 
ics which have killed horses by 
the thousands, with a financial 
loss to horse users running mto 
enormous figures. They also for- 
get the thousands of horses which 
die each year as the result of hot 
weather. In a limited territory 
in Ottawa, only three years ago, it 
was estimated that at least one 
thousand horses died within one 
week, with a consequent loss of 
many thousand dollars to the far- 
mers of that section, and numer- 
ous other similar cases could be 

It is a fact that the supply of 
horses has greatly diminished. 
The reasons for this are simple 
and clearly understood by anyone 
who looks the facts squarely in 
the face. The market for horses 
has been declining rapidly for the 
past few years, and farmers and 
breeders who had beer accustom- 
ed to raising horses ior the mar- 
ket found they were not able to 
produce them at a profit. It was 
only natural, therefore, that they 
reduce their efforts along that 
line and that many of them realiz- 
ed that the same wor*k an'd feed

devoted to the raising of hogs, 
poultry, sheep or cattle would re- 
turn much greater profits and in 
a shorter period of time ; hence it 
was only natural that they should 
give up the raising of horses and 
engage in the more profitable 

It seems remarkable that a 
body of scientific men, such as 
are represented by the Dominion 
Lives Stock Branch, should take 
such a biased and unscientific 
attitude toward mechanical 
power. If a new breed of 
horses were discovered or pro- 
duced they would at once make 
a careful study of its merits, as- 
certain its advantages, and re- 
commend it for the conditions 
where it wa« likely to be satis- 
factory. They would doubtless 
advise farmers how they could 
get the best results from the 
new breed and just how to 
handle it. The same thing would 
take place in the branch of plant 
industry in the case of a new 
crop or variety of crop. That 
is, an impartial investigation 
wouid be made and the crop 
would be recommended for the 
conditions where it promised 
success. In cases where it fail- 
ed, the reasons for failure would 
be ascertained and made known. 
At the same time the require- 
ments for successful growing of 
the crop would be given out in 
order to help the growers raise 
the crop at a profit. 

In the case of the truck and 
tractor, however, the attitude is 
apparently antagonistic, and in- 
stead of helping the farmers use 
these improved machines so as 
to insure success and advertis- 
ing them how to avoid failure, 
the only notice taken of them 
seems to be an attempt to pre- 
vent their introduction and use. 

One very pertinent fact which 
is frequently overlooked by the 
men who oppose mechanical 
power for farm work is the^ 
rapid improvement which usual- 
ly takes place in machinery of 
any kind. The tractor has been 
no exception to this rule. Not 
only have these machines under- 
gone remarkable improvements 
which have increased their life, 
efficiency and economy, but their 
first cost has also been reduced 
to a small fraction of that which 
existed a few years ago. 

Fibre Prices Lower 

The Sisal Sales Corporati-.nhas 
reduced the price of Mexican 
Sisal to cents New York a)id 
6 cents Gulf, lune-Octci>er ship- 
ment, the pric£=' being guaranteed 
against a decline. Buyers are to 
.agree to take 50 per cent, ex- 
warehouse and 50 per cent, cur- 
rent production. There are ru- 
mors of heavy buying by a large 
consumer ; but the Cordage Trcule 
Journal has no confirmation of it. 

The facts of the situation to- 
day can be verified by anyone 
who wishes to take the trouble. 
The market for horses in the large 
cities has been very materially 
reduced by the adoption of motor 
trucks and the lost ground will 
never be regained. There are 
still many lines of work and con- 
ditions in city hauling for which 
horses will doubtless be used for 
a long time to come, and it seems 
probable that the reduction in 
the horse market in our large 
cities will be somewhat slower in 
the future than in the past, due to 
the fact that trucks have already 
been adopted in a very large per- 
centage of the cases where they 
are best suited. Anyone who 
expects any material improvement 
or increase in the horse market 
in our cities is as certain to be 
disappointed as the man who an- 
ticipates an increasing demand 
for flintlock guns and keiosenc 


Saving in Labor Hours 

Mechanical power units in 
nearly every case mean faster 
work because they permit one 
man to control a greater amount 
of power than can be handled 
in the form of horses. It it, of 
course, unafifected by weather 
and has maximum endurance, 
while animals are limited to a 
few hours work per day. Greater 
power and unlimited endurance 
naturally mean a better quality 
of work because there is no need 
of skimping, and the ability to 
do work faster means that there 
is time for dtoing of a more 
thorough job than when the 
slower method of animal power 
is employed. These reasons 
have naturally had great weight 
with farmers in the past, while 
it is true that until a few months 
ago it was an open question 
whether the cost per unit of 
work on farms where tractors 
were used to supplement horses 
was cheaper than where horses 
only were used today the ques- 
tion is settled decisively in favor 
of the tractors due to the lower 
first cost. 

Furthermore, the tractors have 
become more reliable than horses, 
due to their improvements 
due to their repair service which 
is available for them. Hundreds 
of cases are on record where 
these machines have run for 
several seasons without the 
slightest trouble or need for re- 
pairs, and when breaks do hap- 
pen, the new parts can be obtain- 
ed and installed in a few hours' 
time, whereas with horses, ac- 
cidents, sore shoulders, etc., mean 
delays of days or even weeks

unless several extra horses are 
kept on hand for use in emergency 
which, of course, means an extra 
large and unnecessary expense. 
This practice, however, is common 
and really necessary. On the 
other hand, while with the early 
tractors it was common to keep 
a stock of repairs on the farm, 
this is no longer necessary. 

It will be noticed that in all 
propaganda in favor of horses 
the question of belt power is 
never referred to in any way. 
Just how they expect farmers 
to get their belt work done is 
difficult to understand. If the 
writers of such material are at 
all familiar with farm conditions, 
they must realize that on nearly 
every farm it is just as impor- 
tant to have the belt work done 
right and done on time in order 
to place the crop on the market 
in proper condition as it is to 
perform any operation in con- 
nection with the growing of the 

We Have No Pullied Percherons 

One of -the most important 
features of the farm tractor, and 
one which largely accounts for 
its growing popularity with 
farmers, is its ability to furnish 
the power needed to do thresh- 
ing, ensilage cutting, and the 
various other belt jobs, some of 
which are found on practically 
every farm. In other words, the 
tractor is an all-round farm 
power plant while the horse can 
only be used for tractive efifort. 
This means that the farmer who 
owns a tractor not only obtains 
power for his belt work at mini- 
mum cost, but has it always at 
hand and can do his work when- 
ever desired and when conditions 
are just right without delay or 
without unnecessary haste. The 
advantages of this are obvious to 
every farmer, and on many farms 
this feature is considered equjal to 
the tractor's value for field work. 
A farm where no tractor is own- 
ed either possess a station- 
ary engine or hire a custom rig. 
The former means an invest- 
ment practically equal to the 
cost of a tractor but with only 
half its usefulness. The latter 
means a cash outlay each year, 
which will usually pay good 
interest on the present prices of 
" first-class kerosene tractors. 

Considering the question on 
actual facts, it is apparent that 
anyone who urges the use of 
horses to the exclusion of trac- 
tors shows a very limited know- 
ledge of practical farm condi- 
tions and requirements. On 
many farms the value of the 
tractor for belt work alone is 
sufficient to justify its purchase, 
and when its value for both field 
and belt work is taken into 

Canadian Farm Implements 

consideration there are very few 
real farms with average soil anid 
topography where the tractor 
will not be a profitable invest- 
ment if given a fair trial. 

Harvesting Repair Period Set in 

Mr. E. Oliver, secretary of sta- 
tistics in the Saskatchewan De- 
partment of Agriculture, states 
that July 1 to July 15 has been 
set aside as a period during which 
all farmers of the province should 
examine their machinery and or- 
der whatever repairs may be found 
necessary from the implement 
companies. These repairs may be 
ordered for delivery at a future 
date, and can be paid for cash on 

This should be done in order to 
make sure that all necessary re- 
pairs are on hand before harvest 
or threshing begins. Others also 
will be wanting repairs and by 
waiting to order until the last 
moment, somebody will be liable 
to suffer from delay. 

As dealers know, farmers over- 
look the fact that the time of har- 
vest and threshing is also the time 
that fruit shipments are coming 
from the coast, and express .com- 
panies must give preference to 
perishable goods, so that machin- 
ery repairs are necessarily delay- 
ed. By ordering in good time 
the implement companies will be 
in a position to ascertain what the 
special demand will be and can 
assemble the necessary repairs ac- 

"The department," says Mr. 
Oliver, "is very anxious that there 
should be no hinderance or avoid- 
able handicap this year, now that 
there is an excellent prospect of 
a more than average harvest. For 
instance, there is no reason for a 
recurrence of the situation of a 
couple of years ago, when 'the im- 
plement companies were entirely 
out of binder canvases. Just be- 
fore harvest orders for canvases 
poured in from all sides and there 
was the utmost difficulty in filling 
them, with the result that many 
could not begin cutting when the 
grain was ready, and losses oc- 
curred which would have been 
unnecessary had orders been 
placed well in advance."

Fire Loss in Saskatchewan 

Property to the value of $3,- 
750,000 went up in smoke in 
Saskatchewan last year, involv- 
ing a per capita waste of $5, ac- 
cording to statistics which have 
been prepared by Arthur E. 
Fisher, Fire Commissioner for 
the province. 

The total includes $722,000 al- 
lowance for unreported fires. 
The remaining $3,028,000 repre- 
sents a loss in buildings amount- 
ing to $1,348,322 and contents 
valued at $1,679,678. The worst 
month of the year was Septem- 
ber, when property loss amount- 
ed to $458,124, April being a 
close second with a loss of $403,-

every implement dealer should 
carry adequate fire insurance on 
his store and home.

In connection with the recent 
announcement regarding the ex- 
pansion of the Cleveland Tractor 
Co., it is shown that the Allyne- 
Zeder Company will bring back 
to the automotive industry two 
members of the Studebaker 
family who have been prime 
movers in the reorganization. 
They are Clement Studebaker, 
Jr., and his brother, Col. George 
M. Studebaker. Both formerly 
were directors of the Studebaker 
Corporation and they are the 
controlling factors in the Citi- 
zens National Bank of South 
Bend. Both have other large 
financial interests. Clement 
Studebaker will be chairman of 
the board and his brother vice- 
president. Rollin H. White, 
president of The Cleveland Trac- 
tor Co. and a director of the 
Aluminum Manufacturers, Inc., 
will be president of the new cor- 

The other officers will be R. 
T. Hodgkins, general sales man- 
ager of The Cleveland Tractor 
Co., vice-president; A. F. Knob- 
loch, works manager of The 
Cleveland Tractor Co., vice-pre- 
sident and works manager; F. M. 
Zeder, vice-president and chief 
engineer; C. D. Fleming, treas- 
urer of The Cleveland Tractor, 
Co., treasurer; E. B. Wilson, 
formerly sales manager of the 
Willys Corporation, general 
motor car sales manager. 

The Cleveland Tractor Co. is 
an Ohio corporation with a capi- 
tal of $6,000,000. It has been 
turning out Cletracs at its plant 
in Cleveland for the past five 
years, these tractors being sold 
all over the United States and 

The balance sheet of the re- 
organized company, based upon 
appraisals made this year, shows 
total net assets of approximately 
$10,325,000, of which about half 
will be available for plant exten- 
sions. The productive capacity 
of the factory will be 50 cars and 
50 tractors a day. About 
$1,250,000 will be spent in plant 
extension. Promoters of the 
organization expect that a pro- 
duction of 12,000 automobiles 
and 12,000 tractors will be reach- 
ed in 1923.
