Boiled down and atripped of all cam-

law were changed to read that the pas-

evidence that It was to he used for un-
Iswful purposes, Willi s clause stating
that proor by the defendant that be

far toward effertiug the real intent
and purpose of the law.
Furthermore, accottllng to Judge Ta-

We have l««eti wondering here why

A superintendent of a penitentiary
estimates that only fifteen men from
the fnrniN to eighty-five from the cities
have checked through his office to serve
prison sentences during twelve years.
He also ban discovered that farmer*

different from city criminals, in that
having once served a prison sentence
they seldom or never repeat au offeuse.
They can learn a lesson.

Home building is coming back to a price at
which no family can afford to pay rent. Prices
are down as low as actual cost production, based
upon the readjusted wage scale, will permit.

It not surprising that there is i
victim ia the minds of a majority of tractor uasra
that theOUPull is the standard of value ia its Arid.
Nor is it dMruft to see just what has formed this
intensely favorable attitude. A large number of
features ia the OdPull stand out proanacBtly over
and above anything found la other tractors.
For instance, the OdPull is the only tractor backcd
by a written guarantee to satisfactorily use kerosene
at all loads and conditions up to ita brake horse-
power. It plows aa acre of ground at less coat than
any other tractor. For many years it has bdd
the world's tractor fuel economy record.
The OilPull is the only tractor cooled with oil.
No bailing no freesing no rusting no leaking—
no constant refilling, and no other tractor has the
OilPull feature of a double lubrication system.
There are other features which may appeal to you
even stronger than these—have us explain them.
