The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, August 11,1936 NEW TRACTOR TO DO STUFF',, THUR. Leo Lichter to Demonstrate New Case at Schoby Farm Oto August 13, at the Fred Schoby farm Itt miles west of the junction of highways 18 and 169 history will repeat Itself when farmers gather to Witness the performance of the new Case Centennial tractor plow Being demonstrated here by Leo J. Lichter. Many of those planning to attend say that they want to see for themselves how well this latest "creation In a hundred years of plow progress lives up to its claims of easy pulling, ability to handle and cover bulky trash, correct crumbling of soil for the root-bed, and IftVel, uniform work with its high speed bottoms. Mr. Lichter recently took over the Case machinery llrie and is located lust a block and 6 half east, and one block south of the Standard Oil tanks. It was nearly a hundred years ago thai the discouraged, incredulous farmers of northern Illinois fathered at Grand Detour to see that first steel plow tried out in the sticky prairie soil—to see if it would really scour, and thereby open the way to successful tillage of their fertile lands. Though they came on horseback or In creaking Dragons, some of them drawn by plodding oxen, they came from fttr and wide. For Mr. Lichter's demonstration they will come with the swiftness of rolling rubber driven By gasoline. The Centennial plow which they come to watch Is a direct, lineal descendant from the Grand Detour plow of 1837. That flrtt plow of a century had one revolutionary feature—the mater.. iftl of Ita moldboard. This latest plow of the century has several revolutionary features, and many other* that bring striking advances in strength, speed, ease of handling, quality of work, and long life. Starting at 1 p. m. the Centennial will be put through its paces under as wide a variety of conditions as can be found in the available fields. The keenest and most critical attention will be centered on the am- asing design and performance of the new plow: high lift, greater trash c ! -(trance, no landaide pressure, high speed bottoms, easy- reach levers, light draft and long life. Due to its capacity for putting into the toil large volumes of organic matter, rank cover crops, tall weeds, loose straw, long stalks, etc. —It has been dubbed the "soil- conservation plow." So, too, will be studied the crumbling, compactness, covering and level finish of the furrows when turned at the high tractor speeds for which the Centennial's bottoms are designed.

Akr*a, Spcclacular "bar man* KighU daily, in addition to huge all-star Thrill'* program THE LATTtN 80 Humboldt County Is regarded by almost everyone as being among the best In Iowa. We prefer to hold lands such as we are offering In this sale and dispose of less valuable lands. We cannot await the better range of values which we believe near at hand, but instead, we must sell lands as we go along. We have listed two farms for this sale. The Collins or Lattln 80 and the Andrew Miller place. This 80 acres Is surely well located and it is fertile land with fair improvements. A small outlay in cash and considerable work would make this tract a choice Humboldt County farm home. There is a good road, being on State Highway No. 10. There Is good water and not far away Is a good school. All farms In this part of Iowa have brought in good incomes. Either the investor or the home owner should carefully consider these properties. THE MILLER FARM Some time, sooner or later, we are going to recognize the worth of Iowa pasture land. The cost of getting feeding stock from far away ranges and the unstable supply on account of droughts and hot winds is going to make it of more and more importance that a constant supply of feeding stock be had closer to the corn lands. The Miller place Is nearly a balanced farm. It haa some pasture land that has always produced a wonderful lot of grass ever since the country has been settled. The farm has a nice lot of farm land, capable of good crops of alfalfa, corn and small grains. This farm will furnish feed for fifty cows and grain to feed out the calves every year. Or, It will nicely balance a lot of corn land that la not capable of producing pasture. Only the fact that we must dispose of lands as we go along causes us to offer these properties. SALE TERMS The Lattln farm In leased to J. C. Bommel and R. E. Newton; the Miller farm to M. A. Miller. Leases will be aaalgned to buyer. Pouesslon Sept 15, 1936, subject to lease*.
