"The Ohio tractor has been under
rigid test since November. 1919, and
has stood up under the most exact

of parts." said Garrett. "Under dy

three 14-inch plows in seven-year-old
alfalfa sod to a depth of 14 inches
with plenty of power to spare. The
machine is equipped with a heavy
Wisconsin motor and- with more
standard parts than are assembled on
any other tractor. A distinct feature
of the Ohio tractor is that in plow
ing the power from the motor is de
livered directly to the patented
double-reduction rear system with
out turning a wheel in the trans
mission. Its final drive is through
double reduction of worm and couple
gears, all inclosed in a dust-proof
housing and running in a bath of
lubricant. The power connection is
an undershot worm, with oiling ar
rangements which insure a film of
oil on all working parts at all times
without pump or pressure. The ma

highest grade of material and under
conditions of the most skilled and

The above interesting account of
tractor development, concerns the
activities of Uarry D. Clarke, one
time foreman at the O-K garage in
this city and a man well knoVn to
automobile owners in this vicinity,
as well as in other communities.
At the time of the completion of
the new garage, Mr. Clarke was as
sociated with J. H. McMaken &
Sons, and although the war was in
its midst he foresaw that with its
ending, days of production would
come, and with them greater need
for improved farming devices.
Here, in a little-inner room at the
O-K garage, Mr. Clarke worked away
incessantly while others were asleep,
perfecting the machine which is now
so highly spoken of. As noted above
the new machine is called the "Ohio
tractor" and is a wonder in execu
tion. To Mr. Clarke is Justly due the
credit of this new machine. Quietly
he labored with it thru long, ,weary
days and nights, and here in Platts
mouth finally completed the designs
which will mark its improvement in
the tractor field. After having corn
pleted the models, he went east and

Mr. Coble will make an inspection
of R. V. D. No. 2 on which an ex
tension was ordered several months
ago. There has been more or less
disagreement over this extension,
owing to the condition of the road
and the inability of a carrier to get
over it, but recently work has been
done on the road making it practical
for travel and its condition will be
looked over by the inspector.
