Hrnry T. Tarrett. of tlio TarrpU Trac
tor company. Is "dec-llghtPd" with the
Omaha convention and the interest shown
In the tractor business by the dealers an 3
the farmers as well.
"We can talk to them all," says Mr.
Parrrtt, "brcause we hnve an all pur
pose trartor that does all that we claim
f"r It. Because of the flexible frame
construction and proper distribution of
weight oir tractor can and does operate
successfully In soft or uneven Kround."
"Th Barrett" Is mado In one size only
which weighs 5.000 pounds and has a
horse power of 10-25. Kxc.eptlonal agency
contracts are offered by the Parrvtt
company with a result ..iat they will be

iind lntwrst shown by th" peoiJe of this
district and Is highly pleased with the
fact that his company Is exhibiting here.
"Waterloo Boy" Has
a Kerosene Motor
and is Easy to Run
"V.'e arc delighted with this convention
nnd duly surprised that so many outsklo
dealers have come here with such bad
weather, and It convinces us that fie
estimate we placed on the season's trac
tor business wan not excessive.'
The above was the way J. I. Scofield,
one of the travelling representatives 'or
the Waterloo Tractor company, summed
up the Omahu convention. Mr. Scoficll
Is here In company with Mr. Johnson.
sccrrtary-treasuror of the company, and
Joss Goodcll and George Wilson, two
other representatives. They are all very
jttuiBlaptic over the wospects of thi
oming season In the tractor game.
The Waterloo company makes lha
Waterloo Boy," a tractor that has deni-
inHtta'Lcrt ls efficiency In many of th;
'cmoiiKlta t ions nnd tests over the country
anil it actual work on the farms, it has
a kerosene motor and is constructed, for
xlM'on.'iry or portable duty. One of the
claims Is that It is so simple in operation
that a school boy can handle it. Several
new principles are employed in the con
. ''Miction of this trmtor that makes u
si fug appeal to the man who wants a

Hall of Quincy is
Pleased With the
Big Tractor Show
U G, Hall of the Electric Wheel com
pany, Quincy. 111., ts one of the en
thusiastic representatives of tractor
manufacturers at the Implement Dealers'
convention this week.
Mr. Hall's company hakes the Light
All Work Tractor, which has sprung Into
si-ch favor since tho development of the
tractor business became so marked. This
tractor Is built to pull three fourteen-lnch
plows and weighs 4.R0O pounds. The en
gine Is four-cylinder construction, with
a five-Inch bore and six-Inch stroke The
exhibit at the Auditorium is attracting
tho favorable comment of a large num
ber of the dealers.
"This Is a dandy convention." said Mr.
Hall. "The dealers all seem to bo alive
to the possibilities of the tractor game,
and wo are going: to have no trouble
lining up all the agency contracts we
want. I think this Is also true of all the
manufacturers who are represented. Our
tractor appeals because wo have an ex
cess of power over the load we guarantee
the machine will pull, and this assures a
long life of It. Omaha certainly ought to
he congratulated on the evident success
of this convention."
i Sandusky Tractor
at Implement Show
The Sandusky tractor, manufactured
by he Pauch Manufacturing company
of Pandusky, O., Is one of the machines
that Is helping to make Interesting the
xhihlt at the Auditorium this week.
The design of the Sandusky Is original
throughout and no changes in principles
have been necessary in many years of
experience. There have, of course, been
many changes and refinements embodied
In tho tractor since Its inception, but
the principle as first applied was cor
rect. The construction throughout Is of
steel, giving maximum strength with
minimum weight. The motor la set
crosswise In the frame, doing away with
loss of power through bevel gearings.
Tho wheel Is short, which, together with
the right and left hand short turning
breaks, makes It possible to turn the
Pandusky tractor t as sharp an angle
as Is practicable with plows or other
