In Hotel Lobby
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
USCOIjN, Jan. 3. (Special Telegram.)
For over an hour this evening Charles
W. Bryan and Representative Fred
Hoffmelster engaged In a heated dis
cussion In a remote corner of the lobby
of the LIndell hotel, at times the waving
of arms and the shaking of fingers '' i
dlratlng that the discussion was Inter
esting. The trouble was over the appointment
ot a postmaster at Imperial, the home
of the representative from Hitchcock
county, the latter objecting to Brother
Charlie butting In after Congressman
elect Shallenberger had been given the
right to name postmasters In the Fifth
district. Bryan Insisted that Campbell,
the Shallenberger candidate, was not the
right kind of a democrat, while Hoff
tnelstcr Insisted that the people of Im
perial were able to do their own select
ing without the aid of Prince Charlie.
At the close of the argument both men
said the argument was a friendly one,
but It was noticed that the representa
tive continued considerably excited when
talking about the matter.

Here Are Some of the Proof s-The Reasons Why
the Hart-Parr "Little Devil" Oil Tractor
Is So Positively Reliable and Durable
In a previous announcement we told you, in a general way, what the
"Little Devil" is and what it does. In this advertisement, we give you positive proof
that the "Little Devil" is more reliable, more durable, and far superior to any other tractor on the marm.
Frame This is the arch plate girder type. Hot riveted throughout,
giving the stiff est, strongest and lightest form of frame construction known.
Gears Only seven gears and pinions used in getting two speeds for
ward and two speeds reverse. No differential gears with their multiplicity of parts
to cause trouble; no governor or cam gears. Just a total of seven gears. All are
spur gears not a bevel gear in the outfit and all are made of toughest steel-all well protected and well lu
bricated All except two encased and running in oil. That's why there's no chance for gear breakage and
mighty little chance for gear wear in the "Little Devil."
Heavy Duty Ball Bearings Throughout except engine and rear
axle bearings. You know how ball bearings work. They do away with friction
need no adjustment. They wear longerwork smoother will stand more abuse and
run longer, without oil, than any other bearings known. They are expensive but they are the bestthe most re
liable most durable. That's why we use them in the "Little Devil.' '
The Motor Has no cams, cam gears or push rods. No valves, valve
levers, springs or flippers of any kind no valve timing. Just two, smooth, substan
tial cylinders, with some holes in them of proper sizes and in the proper places-not
one thing about them to adjust or to get out of adjustment. Nothing but the two pistons and their connections
that even move consequently nothing else to wear. You know what causes the trouble in motors the cams

an auto. All other vital, moving parts are thoroughly well protected from dust, dirt and grit.
Two Complete Systems of Ignition One standard magneto, the other
dry cells. If one system gets out of order, you can go right ahead on the other,
without a moment's delay.
Simplest Form of Carburetor Known has positive feed injection,
without fuel or water pump. No air valves or springs, nothing to adjust, nothing to
get out of order.
Lubrication Positive, automatic, force feed lubricator. Just pour
in the oil and the lubricator does the rest.
Automatic Liquid Cooling System The cooling liquid is furnished
with the tractor and lasts for years. It can't freeze or lime up. It cools the motor
perfectly in hottest -or coldest weather and requires absolutely no attention.
JOIN FORCES WITH THE ''LITTLE DEVIL"
If you're a farmer, you want a "Mttle Devil" on your farm. You'll need It for getting your spring plowing done and your
rrons started on time. It does all the work three or four good teams ran do even cultivating growing crops and it does It better,
Quicker and cheaper than hoibes. In addition, it will do all your belt work, for which you now use one or more stationary or
portable khh engines. But don't delay. "The Little Devils" are. going mighty fast. And the sooner you get your order In, the
more likely you will be to receive your "Little Devil" in time fo'r spring work. The prlco is only
Just $1C0 per horse, equivalent horse (&7Cirii

A TIP TO DEALERS
U you're a deuler, don't overlook the golden business-building, trade-cementing possibilities which will be yours If you handl
the "Little Devil" In your locality. Don't let your competitor beat you to It. But get in touch with us at once and close for tha
territory you want. If It isn't already taken.
The "Little Devil" is now on exhibition at the Auditorium. Conie and look it over. See for yourself why this wonderful farm
