Here’s an item from the front page of the May 26, 1921 edition of the Skidmore News:
Township Buys Tractor.
The Nodaway township board has purchased a Case 22-40 tractor for use on township roads, and the machine was unloaded here yesterday.
The township’s old Flower City tractor was traded in on the new machine, the transaction being made with W. G. Carpenter. — Burlington Junction Post.
