The TORO is the final achievement in use-
ful, adaptable farm power equipment that
makes the motorization of the farm complete.
It is two standard machines in one—an effi-
cient two-row cultivator and a dependable
tractor. Each operates independently of the
other and the dual equipment |does the work
of from two to four horses.

What farm experience has taught
Jim Littlefield about overalls
WHEN Jim Littlefield, of Braden,
Oklahoma, turned in his cotton
crop last year, he got a ten-cent
Eremium on every pound. Experience
as taught him the grade of cotton that
pays him best. And this same experience
has taught him the sort of work clothes
that wear best on the job.
James Littlefield has tried a lot of over-
alls since he started cotton raising—and
today you'll find him in Blue Buckle
No matter how heavy the work is on
his farm, he has found that Blue Buckles
stand every test he gives them. And
today millions of men, raising the nation's
food supply, running trains, mines, and
factories, have found that Blue Buckles
meet every test.
Find out for yourself about Blue
Buckles. Test the long-wearing denim
cloth, the wide, double-stitched seams.
Try on a pair. Feel the comfort of the
big, roomy Blue Buckle pattern—the free
swing raglan sleeves in the coats. Blue
Buckles never bind or rip. Solid work-
manship in every detail is bound to give
you your money's worth.
All sizes—Men's, Youths', Children's.
Ask your dealer today for Blue Buckles.

On the farm, just as in the big factories in the city, the
machine way of doing things is quicker, easier, better. The
Fordson way is the machine way of farming. It will help
you to raise more per acre, thus increasing your income. It
will help you to do more work in a day. "it will lighten your
work; and make your work easier for you.
The Fordson doesn't stop with the field work. It is a
flexible, all around power plant, ready for use during the
entire year, and at a remarkably low cost of upkeep. And
there's work for the
Fordson on every farm
every day in the year.
The Fordson is very
simple to operate—a
school-boy can drive it.
We will be glad to ex-
plain it to you, and tell
you why it is a profitable
investment. Come in and
