Power at Rear Wheels
In the ordinary automobile much energy is
wasted in transmitting power from the engine
to the rear wheels through universal joints , or in
other words around corners.
In the Rambler , the power is transmitted in a direct
line from the crank shaft to the rear axle. This straight
line drive insures the delivery of maximum power.

With the coming of Improved inn-
rhliu-ry tin1 probluin of what to buy
and what to gut along without has bo-
t'omc it serious one. The- farmer has
more moni'y tied up ' " machlnory than
In any one thing besides his land.
Having too much machinery is nearly
as bad as having too Httlu. What la
needed Is a wtso selection.
It Is always well to do a little figur
ing before buying a new machine. Di
viding the cost of ( hi ! Implement by
the number of years It may bu reason
ably expec-ttd to hint will give the
amount that must be charged to de
preciation each year. Add to this an
allowance for repairs , storage and
each year's share of the Interest , and
you will have thu yeaily eost of the
machine. A little further figuring will
Klmw whether the benefit received
froai It In a year will warrant this
Machinery may be roughly divided
Into live classes tillage , planting. hayIng -
Ing , harvesting and miscellaneous. Of
the many tillage Implements there are
some that are absolutely necessary on
any farm. Among these are the plows
Kor the farmer on a quarter section a
sixteen Inch riding plow will be all
: hat Is needed for the field work. In
uddltlon It may be well to have n
cheap walking plow for plowing the
garden , turning out potatoes and for
ise In cane of an emergency. A gang
plow requires too many horses to be
practicable on the average 100 ncre
farm. On larger farms , where plenty
of horses are available , a gang plow
will save the time of an extra man. It
Is a good plan to have the plow sup
plied with two or three moldboards
of different slants. A steep moldboard -
board pulverizes the soil more anil for
this reason Is a good thing to use on
stubble land. On clover sod , however ,
a longer moldboard should bo used * In
order to lessen the draft.
One of thu most Important tillage
Implements Is the disk. No other ma
chine will pulverize the soil so quick
ly or thoroughly. The use of a tongue
truck a small two wheeled arrange
ment under the rear end of the
tongue Is of considerable advantage
In taking the weight off the horses'
necks. Solid wheel disks pulverize
the ground more thoroughly than
spaders or cutaways.
A good harrow Is a necessity on any
farm. The flexible type Is best for all
conditions , as It gels down Into the
hollows and rides over trash better
than will n solid frame harrow.
Spring tooth harrows , rollers and
weeders all have their special uses ,
but can hardly bo said to be neces
sary oil the average quarter section.
Next In order come the cultivators ,
and there are so many stylus of these
that choosing Is a illlllcult matter. The
most Important part of the cultivator
Is the shovels. A happy medium Is
struck In the six shovel type. The
shovels on this can be run deep
l. XXIII-A HANDY TVl'K Ol1 OA80LINU
enough to loosen the soil well the
first two times over the field and can
later be bet shallow enough to avoid
serious Injury to the spreading roots.
If you are In the corn business ex
tensively enough to afl'ord two sets
of cultivators It Is well to have spe
cial surface machines for the last two
cultivations. Some co' ipanlcs make
Hiirfaio blades which can be attached
In place of the shovels when so dc-
Iral. In the hands of a careful man
I'.ie two row cultivator does good aud
I'Irst In the Hue of planting ma
chines come thu seeders. While costIng -
Ing a llttlo more at llrst , there Is no
better Implement for sowing small
grain than the disk drill. The disks
cut through cornstalks and other
trash , and the seed Is deposited evenly
and at a uniform depth. The result
ing evenness of stand will cause an
Increased crop sutllelent to pay the
entire cost of the drill In n year or
In selecting n corn planter the ma
nor typo of furrow opener Is prefer-
ab'le to the disk , since the latter Is
hard to guide. The essential point in
planters , however , Is the drop. If you
are In the habit of grading your seed
corn carefully so that the kernels are
all about the same sl/.o the edge drop
plates will give a more even stand
than will the round hole drop. Plant
ers In which the plates are turned by
n chain from the axle and the wire
used only to open the shoe arc surer
to drop every time than those In
which all the work Is done by the
There nro two haying Implements
that are absolutely essential , the mow
er and the rako. He sure to pick a
wide cut mower. Six feet Is a good
width. The extra draft amounts to
little , and considerable time will be
saved In going over the field.
Where much hay Is made the old
way of raking in bunches and pitchIng -
Ing It on'to the wagon by hand Is too
slow and laborious. A much better
plan Is to rake the hay Into wlndrown
with a side delivery rake and gather
It up with a hay loader. Where the
liny Is put hi the barn a sot of double
harpoon forks will make short work
of the unloading. If It Is to be stacked
some form of stacker will save a great
deal of hard work.
The most important harvesting ma
chine Is the self binder. The binder Is
Flo. XXIV LOADING THE MANCRII
EU Dinner rnou THE IIAIINITH A LIT-
fJie most complicated machine on the
farm and the one most likely to get
out of order. In buying a binder sim
plicity of construction , case of adjust
ment and handlness of oiling are Im
portant points to look after. A tongue
truck Is an attachment that should go
with every binder. This Is the only
menus of eliminating side draft that
has yet been discovered. A tongue
truck Is rather expensive , but so arc
sore shoulders and necks on the horses
at harvest time.
Where much stock Is kept the corn
binder Is a necessary Implement , liy
cutting n largo share of the corn and
using It as fodder or sllago much feed
Is saved that would otherwise be wast
ed. About -10 per cent of the entlro
feeding value of the corn plant Is In
the stalk. When these arc left stand
ing In the field the greater part of this
feed Is wasted. The shocked fodder
may profitably bo run through a shred
der before feeding. This will husk the
corn and leave the stalks In the best
shape to bo fed or used for bedding.
One of the most Important of the
miscellaneous implements Is the wind
mill. No farmer can afford to pump
water for his stock by hand when the
wind will do It for nothing after the
mill has once boon put up. In erecting
n windmill bo sure that It Is put on n
high enough tower so that surround
ing trees or buildings will not cut off
the wind. A mill which Is geared back
so that the wheel makes three revolu
tions or so to one stroke of the pump
will run In a lighter wind than will
the straight geared type. A three
egged tower Is just as strong as n
four and considerably cheaper.
A machine that Is almost Indispensa
ble on a stock farm Is the gasoline en
gine. The original cost of these en
gines reasonable , and the amount
required for fupl and repairs Is small.
With a gasoline cnglno to furnish the
power to run a shcllcr and grinder
feed can ho cheaply nnil easily prepared -
pared for the stock. The cnglno will
also saw wood , If you arc fortunate
enough to Imvo any to saw , run the
sllago cutter , grindstone , separator ,
churn and washing machine. It may
also replace the windmill as n source
of. power for pumping.
In selecting a gasoline engine bo
pnro to got one largo enough to do the
required work easily , remembering at
the sumo time that whcro much light
work Is to be done a small cnglno
will do it with much less gasoline
UIAII will be used by a large one.
This objection to n largo engine can
bo overcome to n large extent by so
arranging the work that several light
machines may bo run at the same
time. The most reliable typo of en
gine Is the four cycle , in which there
are two revolutions of the flywheel to
one explosion. The witcr system of
cooling la the most etllclent , though
nlr cooled engines nro nil right for
Another necessary machine of the
ctock farm Is the manure spreader.
Not only does this save n great deal
of work , but It also applies the ma-
mire more evenly and will cover n
greater amount of ground with a giv
en quantity of manure. There should
be llttlo wood in a manure spreader ,
since It rots out quickly. ,
