Tractor Makes a
Run of 1,000 Miles
The most effective test of endurance
ever tried by any manufacturer of farm
tractor engines wss recently completed
In Fremont when the Wallls "Cub"
tractor, handled by the J. I. Case Plow
works, finished Its 1,000-mile d'srabtmy
nm, from Cleveland, O., to Fremont
There were no previous records in th
ttsctor business with which to compare
thl work, but the thousand miles wa
made In thirty days actual running time,
with a dally average of thirty-three and
a third miles. This with a machine whose
maximum speed Is stated aa four and a
half miles per hour.
Th run started June XI and finished
July 28. Sundays were rest days, but all
other days were used to the limit and
erlth this rather remarkaVie time was
coupled the fact that the engine under
went no repair from th time of leaving
Cleveland until Fremont wa reached.
Not even a spark plug wa changed, but
the engine la running nearly aa well as
the day it started.
Through Ohio, Indiana and Illinois
the trip was uneventful, the smooth
"Pike" roads giving absolutely no trouble,
but with th Mlseteslpi behind, th
wearher man took a "hand In the game.
Rain, clay roads and flooded valleys all
did their best to hinder the "Cub's"
progress. With roads turned Into rivers
and valleys Into lskes, the tractor pa
tiently plodded across Iowa and Omaha
was reached at last
Mora bad weather was encountered be
tween Omaha and Fremont, and when
the "Cub" and It's trailing wagon fin
ally pulled Into their destination, they
were mud from radiator to tall board.
This cross-country run mark a new
era In tractor building. Several features
were brought Into prominence, and lines
for futur Improvement were firmly
established. Spring mounting, . light

and surplus power were demonstrated
to be th foundation of the dependable

CORN PROSPECTS ARE GOOD
The Burllngton'a crop report for
the week ending last Saturday ia far
from being satisfactory, ao far as
Nebraska and Kansas are concerned,
the discouraging feature being too
much rain. For tba week, the pre
cipitation, according to the . reports
from the agents, ranged from one
half to four ond one-half inches, with
almost constant rains since the clos
ing of the report. Several stations in
Nebraska reported from two to four
inches during Saturday and Sunday,
with still more rain falling.
Dealing with the wheat throughout
Nebraska, considerable damage ha been
done by the excessive and continued
rain and In many localities the loss
is thought to be quite extensive. It Is
estimated that in the state, et the close
of lsat week, K per cent of the small
