Interesting news article from 1916 about farming w/ tractors vs. horses

I found this today, and it's very interesting to read it in the context of the day. Here is a link:

If it's FREE, it's for ME!

ALWAYS remember to remove the spark plug wire from the plug before sticking your hand in the machine!!!! The fingers you save could be your own.

Interesting...men were cut from a different cloth back then, they were almost as rugged as their equipment...running a tractor from daylight till dark could comprise of 18 hours depending on where you were located...To do that day in and day out must have been taxing.
