The Cleanest Farms
In Any Community
FORDSON farms have that reputation. Early fall plow
ing is what keeps these farms free of weeds,
"That's easy to talk about, but how are you going to plow
when the ground is so hard and dry, and the weather so hot
that a team can't work?" That, probably is your objection to
the formula. '
"Use a Fordson-Oliver Plowing Outfit," is the answer. Heat
and hard soil and dry weather don't bother a bit when you use
Fordson power instead of- horses. Early fall plowing with 3
Fordson tractor and an Oliver No. 7 plow will enable you to
turn over the soil the time you know it will do the most good?..

Controversy between citizens of
City and Sheriff Fischer

years, came to the surface during

was that he would give up all effort
to obtain renomination and hold the
office for the remainder of the year
in name only, giving actual powers
to a chief deputy to be chosen in
the place of his son.
