What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Ak I'd GEYSER, MONT., FEB. 11 1916 - NO. 0 POWICR OF GAS -TRACTO* The rapid progress whieb has been occuring in the development of the farm gas tractor and the c•eatantly increas- ing number of men who are purchasing or contemplating the purchase of one of these outfits seer* to warrant the is- suing of some information with regard to a feature concerning which there is considerable confusion, i. e., the pow- er rating of tractors. Nearly everyone knows the defini- tion of a \horsepower\ as given in school arithmeties, ete„nainely, \the power required to raise a weight of :13,000 pounds to a height of one foot in one minute.\ As this is a definite. fixed ualt of power, one would nehmen,: suppose that the horsepower ratings of two tractors would be a logical and re- liable means of comparing their ability to perform work; that a tractor rated at 39 horsepower on the drawbar, would be twice as powerful and capable of doing twice as much work as one rated at 15 horsepower on the drawbar, for example. This supposition would •orreet . but_for the fact that then liiis been no definite standard used in ertaining the horaepewer developed by tractors and the percentage of the pow- er actually developed, which should be taken for their catalogue rating. The various manufacturers have followed their own judgement in the matter, and as a result several methods of titling are being used, with a consequent lack of uniformity. It is because of this fact at the pres- ent it is quite comma' to find two‘tra- etora doing practically the Maine amount of, _work although with w ilIs differ- ent catalogue ra it obtioue that either the outfit with a plow cata• kt-nr ratlaghas beers underrated by ite 111117101.111u1r,•,.that the squad ineeh• inc has been overrated, or perhaps both have occurred. It would seem advi-e- able, therefore, that steps be taken to bring about a standard rule for aseert• Dining and designating the horsepower of tractors. It Is not so important, per - hope, what particular method is follow• ed so long as the same method is used by all manufacturers, thus avoiding having machinee of the same power giv en such varying ratings. A movement is already on foot in the department to bring abcut the adoption of some staniard. Until one has been decided upon and adopted, it is suggest- i•d that farmers, in comparing different makes of tractors, should give partic- ular attention to the number of plows pulled and the amount of work done by . the various_ machines, and that teem at._ tent ion be paid to the catalogue ratings. When outfits can be seen working side by side, as at the tractor demon- strations which are being held through- out the country, the amount of work done is of more value in i-untpaiing the relutive power than ere ths mann factAirers' ratings, unle , :s exavtly same method has been used in encl CAW. It is obvious that two traetors—eael pulling the same number of plowi ol equal site, at equal depths, in the sam and each moving at the seine spec( - -are exerting practically equal amount! of power on the drawbar. In such ease if each is pulling its normal load, they should have the same drawbar rutin:2. It is not at all uncommon, however, 11c previously stated, to find tra..-tors un der such conditions with widely diffm ent ratings. By using as a standard the amount of work done by differin tractors, therefore, a very fair tompar- ison of the drawbar horsepower ean b, obtained. With this known, n gess idea of the power of the motor cciii I,- gaincd. if, in the ease just iii. - ntioned one of the nutehinca was eonsidertibl !wavier than the other, it is apparen; .hat it woo hi require more power t• - H ove its own weight and that it wont. rherefore be capable of exerting on lb Intwbar as large a perce.itage ii th. •notor's total as ii in il Cie lithe naehine, mistiming that the les s o lower through gecrs, etc.. in the trans mission was the same. It nal uricih ollows that the motor on the hea vies nachine would thvelop more priwerii he belt than wonld the 00000 • on th• ighter outfit. In comparing the power of two trac ors the speed at which they are me' must alwayls be eonsldered. rector pulling two plows at 2 miles a: ,our will do the same amount of wort :is one pulling one plow and travelin at 4 miles an hour, other conditions le flg equal, and the horsepower develop -el at the drawbar is the same, beeaus, the element of the time enters into the letermination of horsepower. The slow- -r ray given trator is geared to move lie greater will be tlit• load whieh it con cull et the drawbar, as it pulls it leas :•apidly. The amount of work exerted vihl remain practically the same. Itis obvious that in the ease mention - 1d that a tractor pulling one plow and ;tinning twice a s fast as the one poll- :ng two plows must move its own weight ever.Abelegroni4 twice, as trimly ! - inlets as will the other tractor. It the weight of the two tractors is the sani,. I it will be seen that twice LIS 1111E'll !ewer has been expended in moving the weight of the h;gli-speed tractor a.; ho-. ..etn used by the one with low sped.

God's plan And measure of a stalwart man, Limbed like the old heroic breeds Who stand self posed on mannood's solid earth, Not forced to frame excuses for he birth, Fed from within with all the strength he needs. 3uch was he, our martyr chief, Whom late the nation he had led, With ashes on her head, Nept with the passion of an angry grief. Forgive me if from present things I turn To speak what in my heart v;ili beat and burn And hang my wreath on his world hon- ored urn.
