New Tractor on the Job, 1921

Monroe Township had purchased a brand new tractor, and the community was getting its money’s worth, as we see in the July 14, 1921 edition of the Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri) on page 1:

New Tractor on the Job.
The township’s new Rumely 20-40 special tractor is on the job and the roads bear evidence that it is doing its duty well.

The new tractor was unloaded at Quitman last Thursday night, and since that time one mile of road east of town and two miles west have been put in first class condition. The second two-mile stretch west of town is being graded now.
