WHY NOT HAVE STEAM
10 YOUR WORK?
Steam is the only reliable method of
developing power lorjengines for the heavy operations of agriculture,for grading, heavy hauling,
plowing, pulling stumps and moving buildings. One of the most important requirements of
traction and portable engines is a safe, strong boiler of suitable proportions, well made and thor
oughly tested. As a measure of absolute safety the J. I. CASE boiler is first put under a cold water pressure of
200 lbs. to the square inch; second, when the completed engine comes from the erecting room it is kept under 130
lbs. steam presure for several hours and worked on a Prony brake. Thus you are sure of having a boiler that will
not leak and an engine that is not defective. A traction engine similar to cut, is rated at 20 horse
power, 10x10 inch cylinder and sells at

climbed hills others couldn't go and is a popular one with threshermen. Price

well to Show Hi3 Contempt for
All Things Royal.
Everyone who tins handled paper rec
ognizes foolscap as a sheet 13 by 15
Inches. This is used as a standard
size all the world over, officially and
commercially. U will therefore be In
teresting to know where and how this
word originated. After the execution
of Charles I. Cromwell and his staff,
in organizing the commonwealth, made
all possible effort to remove every
thing which had anything to do with
the old monarchy. The paper In offi
cial use up to the time had as a water
mark the king's crown; and. when
Cromwell was asked what should he
1 at In the place of the crown, to show
his overwhelming dislike for anything
concerning royalty, he directed a fool's
cap to ho put in place of the crown.
This was done, and when Char! s 11.
ascended the throne (if Kngland, it was
at first forgotten to replace the cap by
something else, and then, too hit:', tli?
king was afraid to do anything to re
call things dangcrors to touch, au.i so
It was neglected and the fool's cap
may h- seen a a water-mark on near
ly all British ott'ulal infers.
