Let the Devil
The Hart-Parr "Little Devil" Oil Tractor
Burns cheapest kerosene and other low grade fuels.
Only small oil tractor in tne world
If you're farming only an average size farm, you probably have
$1,2 :0 to $1,500 or more invested in horses, and probably $300 to $600 more in portable or stationary gas
engines necessary to do this work of ONLY ONE "Little Devil." Working or idle, your horses require ex
pensive fuel but the "Little Devil" uses cheapest kerosene for fuel and' requires no care, costs nothing
when not actually working. i
v Sell three or four of your horses. Invest the money in a "Little
Devil." Then you can do half again more horse work and all of your belt work, without investing a single
penny more than you have invested. The "Little Devil" uses the same plows, cultivators, listers, discs,
drags, harrows, harvesters, corn binders, etc., that you now use with horses.
And best of all, it does all the horse and belt work ever so much
cheaper and more seasonably. It more than pays for itself in a single season out of what it saves. That's
why no farmer can afford to be without one. 1
The "Little LJevil" will plow deeper, cultivate more seasonably and
save you money at every turn. It burns cheapest kerosene reducing fuel bills to one-half and has auto
matic, liquid cooling system, preventing all damage to the engine from over heating or freezing, with conse-
quent costly repairs. ' .

When C. W. Hart and C. H. Tarr were
boya In college they were earning their
own way. Turing this time they built
their first tractor. Before they could
build another they had to sell the first
one. which wss no easy task. Besides
that was fourteen years ago when peo-
Tle who had use for tractors didn't know
I, anit the tractor were not tha finished

Farmers Must Have
Tractors to Save
Expenses on Farm
C. F. Loomls of the ePorla Tractor
company haa the distinction of being one
of the pioneers In the tractor business.
Mr. Loom is, with Fred Olover of the
Avery company and D. M. Hartsotigh,
mads and placed on the market the first
four-cylinder tractor. This was over six
teen years ago.
"At that date the people were pretty
skeptical of the tractor for farm !ower,"
says Mr. Loomls. "My associates and X
didn't have an opportunity to bring our
machines to a fine big exhibit and con
vention like this then and have the deal
ers and farmers come in and take an in
terest. There has been a big change In
the business and right now we are facing
the greatest business that tractor people
have ever known. The farmers ahve had
it demonstrated to them that the tractor
will do their work cheaper and setter
than horses and they are uslmf them
they must have them."
The tractor the ePorla people are put
ting out now is a J -pound machine.
They have only one size. It has an eight
horse power pull at the drawbar and
twenty horsepower at the belt. Agency
contractors are coming in nicely, accord
ing to Mr. Loomls.
