A Watch for the Graduate
For the event of his life get Inn.- a
timekeeper for life. A good watch,
by the service it performs, teaches the
same lesson that school and college
training gives-accuracy, precision and
faithful performance of duty. A good
watch is a constant reminder of the
value of time, a dollar and cents asset
When you think of a graduation gift,
decide upon a watch. A pretty little
bracelet watch lor the girl and a thin
model for the boy.

Tho park board has been delayed
in making Improvements at tho now
city park through inublllty to' secure
a landscape gardener tto lay out tho

result so far, and other cities will bo

is havo a plan of tho park bluo printed,
showing whore dlfforont pleasure at
tractions aro to bo placed, trees plant

that from year to year, as tho money
is forthcoming, to mako Improvements
that will finally complcto outlined
plans. Otherwlso if a haphazzard
plan was pursued thoro would bo
neither beauty nor system to tho park,
and lmprovomonts mndo ono year might

Mogul 8-1 .6 Saves Its Own Price
In Fuel Bill Reduction
THAT'S true. A Mogul 8-16 kerosene tractor
saves its own price in fuel bill saving, as com
pared with a gasoline tractor.
Ujitil April 1st the price remains at $675 cash
f. o. b. Chicago. Fortunate early purchases of ma
terial still allow you this low figure. After April 1st
the price will be $725, same terms.
At either price the Mogul 8-16 is by far the most eco
nomical tractor because it operates on cheap, common kero
sene or coal oil. Gasoline to run the gasoline tractor costs
over 100 per cent more than the kerosene a Mogul 8-16
will use. Which is best for you?
You know what gasoline costs you, and you know what
you pay for kerosene. Figure it out yourself, or see your
dealer. This is a saving you can't afford to miss.
