Farmers are waging a light in
the Nebraska legislature to gain an
equal footing with the speculator

changes of the state, one of the
measures providing that the ex
changes of the state should be held
to be public markets and that all
who agree to comply with the rules
should be entitled to membership. It

the markets of the state with the
speculator, but the speculator does
not want the man who produced and
first owned the foodstuffs of the
state to have the right to an open
market. He will fight to the last
ditch to prevent such a law going
upon the statute books. There is
not a single good reason why the
co-operative institutions of the
state, should not have access to all
of the markets of the state, except
the perfectly selfish reason of tin

against the ultimate consumer as

Nearly five thousand of our boys in khaki ami

course, make a plate in our organization for every
, one of them, but we wish to do it without throw

places and have worked faithfully for us ever
since. This is not gtung to be so easy for us as

In order to do this we must move forward to the
farm some thousands of tractors that are ordered
for delivery at various dates up to May 1st, and
we shall also have to ship a large number of trac

Our Eariy-Deiivery Discount Plan
If you will take delivery of a Mogul or Titan tractor now, we will
reward your co-operation as follows: To those who will accept de
livery of a iMogul or Titan 10-20 on or before March 8th we will
give an Early Delivery Discount of 5 per cent from the price of the
tractor. (This amounts to $61.25 in the case of the Titan 10-20 and
$56.25 on the Mogul 10-20.)
After March 8th the following discounts will be given:
For delivery during; week of March 10 to March 15, inclusive 4 per cent
For delivery during week of March 17 to March 22. inclusive 3 per cent
For delivery during week of March 24 to March 29, inclusive 2 per cent
For delivery during week of March 31 to April 5, inclusive 1 per cent
This discount will go a long ways toward paying the fuel bills
of your tractor during this season.
P.y taking advantage of this Early-Delivery
Discount, you will not only be helping yourself,
but will enable us more easily to put back to
work our army of returning boys without break
ing up our present organization.
You will I that you need a few weeks to
get acquainted with your new tractor. The man
who has his tractor early' can In-come, familiar
with it, so that when the first day of good plow
ing weather dawns, he will be able to get in the
field without a moment's lost time. That in it
self is a very good reason fur taking early delivery.
Go to your dealer and tell him that you will
accept immediate delivery of your Mogul or Titan
ln-20 horsepower tractor, so he can make up his
carload shipments without delay.
