Few Drivers Fail In Vision Test , Only about one-half of one per cent of persons seeking renewals of their drivers licenses here have been refused because they failed to pass the 20-40 vision test which became effective this month. Richard Christiansen, drivers license examiner, says that since the new law started operating there have been only five or six refusals in Kossuth county. Persons with defective vision have in some instances been asked to get new glasses and when that has been done most of the applicants have passed the vision test. Starting Saturday, July 24, the court house will be open from 8 a. m. until 4 p. m. for license examination. It is no longer possible to have a license renewed by mail or by a friend. Every applicant must appear in person! A new iyp^ ol farm tractor lhal may prove to be the iinal threat io horses on the farm will be on display Friday at Bradley Bros., local Allis-Chalmers dealer. Bradley Bros., predict it will replace that last team of horses on many farms by serving as a chore tractor, and that it will fill complete power needs on many other farms. The new Allis-Chalmers model differs from previous tractor design in that it has a rear-mounted engine with implements attached in front within unobstructed view of the operator. Moving the engine to the rear keeps the front oi the tractor clear for mounted implements, any of which can be attached or detached in five minutes. Even the plow is front- mounted. Joe Bradley points out that many farms keep one last team of horses for a few seasonal jobs, such as corn planting or hauling. Although such tasks are few and far between, the horses 'eat lheir_ heads off" all year long ,and at present feed prices, "that ain't hay."'The new tractor, he says, will do such work on 2 or 3 quarts of fuel an hour—and eats only when it works. The owner just presses the starter button, wilh no currying, harnessing or hitching xip. One feature of special interest for close work such as cultivating vegetables, plowing out the corners or chore jobs is a special 3 4-mile per hour low gear. The four speeds forward range up to 6.9 miles per hour. Wheel treads can bo adjusted io fit any row spacing. The tractor serves as a portable power unit on bell-operated machines like water pumps, elevators, feed grinders and feed mixers. New mounteC rmp'.emenis designed to work with the new, tractor include a 12-inch plow, 2-row drill planter, 5-foot mower, single row .cultivator. _60-inch .double tool bar cultivator, 80-inch single tool bar cultivator, independent gang cultivator for vegetable beds, power driven seeder for truck crops and ground driven seeder. Regular pull-behind implements include a S-foot disc harrow, 2-sfeClion peg tooth harrow and 1-section spring tooth harrow. It was said that this is the first riding tractor to answer the needs of part lime farmers, of which there are now more than one million in this country. The Company's slogan for the tractor is: "For some jobs on all farms and all jobs on some farms." The new tractor is pictured in Bradley Bros, advertisement in this issue. (Adv.) T^ The study of medicine is a selective process in itself. Seven years of intensive study in college, plus one year of practice in a hospital, are the minimum requirements. It is wise to trust your precious health only to a conscientious physician of recognized standing. Avoid the quack, the charlatan, the "cure all" type of doctor. Almost invariably they do more harm than good. Select your physician as you should your pharmacist—with care and confidence. When your physician writes a prescription, bring it to us to be filled. We are specialists at this work. NATIONAL JULY 25th tb 31st ' ' You know belter. If you'd slop and think, your common sense would warn you you're pulling your worst fool forward when you chop wood like Ihis. Bui you're in a hurry to gel Ihis chore done.

Bui you lake a chance and somelimes you gel away wilh it, but somelimes you don'l. Just Io save a few seconds you pour gasoline or kerosene into the slove. You know you're risking a serious burn or an explosion fire that could turn your home in- to a charred pile of rubble. You know belter, but you lake a chance, because V° u haven't had a fire—yel. Thai Second you save won't mean much if you have to spend years of hard work rebuilding your home, painful months in a hospital. Don'l join the thousands that are disfigured or made helpless every year by burns. Don'l 'lake chances with firel Farm animals cause one out of five accidental farm work deaths. So be careful around animals. Approach them witlj a friendly word or pat. You may be gored or kicked to death unless you do! The dramatic warning pictures shown here illustrate but a few of the countless ways in which farm accidents occur. Annually, the cost is great—in lives lost, in injuries suffered, in work days and farm revenue lost. So don't take chances! A careless minute . ^ saved may mean a life lost. Inspect your farm for possible causes of accidents—and always "play safe". i Be careful-the life you may save may be your own! Fall* cause more than a third of all fatal accidents to farm people. Why put off repairing dangerous ladders, steps, fences and floors? The chance you take may put you in the hospital.
