Aligning the Tractor. Prof John S. Glass of the Iowa State College offers some simple but valuable suggestions for setting the tractor for belt jobs. Four operations are necessary to get the belt outfit set and ready for work. First, set the machine in con- venient position so that the operators will not have to work in the dirt. Next, uncouple the tractor from the ma- chine and drive forward away from it several feet. Then quickly cramp the] steering gear to the right and proceed! until the tractor has straightened out at right angles to its former position. Stop, reverse the drive, cramp the wheels to the left and back up until facing the machine again, This will bring the tractor into very close align- ment. Further aligning may be done by backing away from the machine and then driving toward it, sighting along the edge of the pulleys. Prof. Glass does not advise the use of a belt which makes the distance be- tween pulleys less than 30 feet. A short belt is difficult to keep in good adjustment.

Take him into your confidence if your business is legitimate and you silence knocking. The Standard Oil has won favor by its policy of publicity and the favor is deserved.

Aligning the Tractor. Prof John S. Glass of the Iowa State College offers some simple but valuable suggestions for setting the tractor for belt jobs. Four operations are necessary to get the belt outfit set and ready for work. First, set the machine in con- venient position so that the operators will not have to work in the dirt. Next, uncouple the tractor from the ma- chine and drive forward away from it several feet. Then quickly cramp the] steering gear to the right and proceed! until the tractor has straightened out at right angles to its former position. Stop, reverse the drive, cramp the wheels to the left and back up until facing the machine again, This will bring the tractor into very close align- ment. Further aligning may be done by backing away from the machine and then driving toward it, sighting along the edge of the pulleys. Prof. Glass does not advise the use of a belt which makes the distance be- tween pulleys less than 30 feet. A short belt is difficult to keep in good adjustment. Fred Schultz of Odessa township Suffered a very painful accident cn Wednesday last week, in operating a circular wood saw, his right hand com- ing in contact with the blade, nearly severing his thumb; m 3 MORE CREAMERY , UNITS TO ORGANIZE Creameries Producing Half of State's Co-operative Output Join.

Aligning the Tractor. Prof John S. Glass of the Iowa State College offers some simple but valuable suggestions for setting the tractor for belt jobs. Four operations are necessary to get the belt outfit set and ready for work. First, set the machine in con- venient position so that the operators will not have to work in the dirt. Next, uncouple the tractor from the ma- chine and drive forward away from it several feet. Then quickly cramp the] steering gear to the right and proceed! until the tractor has straightened out at right angles to its former position. Stop, reverse the drive, cramp the wheels to the left and back up until facing the machine again, This will bring the tractor into very close align- ment. Further aligning may be done by backing away from the machine and then driving toward it, sighting along the edge of the pulleys. Prof. Glass does not advise the use of a belt which makes the distance be- tween pulleys less than 30 feet. A short belt is difficult to keep in good adjustment. Fred Schultz of Odessa township Suffered a very painful accident cn Wednesday last week, in operating a circular wood saw, his right hand com- ing in contact with the blade, nearly severing his thumb; m 3 MORE CREAMERY , UNITS TO ORGANIZE Creameries Producing Half of State's Co-operative Output Join.
