Do you want the wheels on one side of your wagon to follow the rut While those on the,other side ride on rough ground, jolting and wracking your wagon, putting an extra strain on your horses and spoiling the road for y-our^ own-or. other autos? "When everybody uses "auto" track wagons,—as we believe everybody will in the near future,—all this road trouble will be overcome.
