New Uses For the Automobile?

   It remained for a Belmond young man to find a new use for his automobile. We have all read of the farmer who does the churning, grinds the feed, pumps the water, and then rides to town in his automobile, but this young man goes him one better. He plows the garden. With plenty of room to work the auto, and a friend, to hold the plow handles, he did a great job, only using up two dollars worth of gasoline to plow the garden, which any teamster would have been glad to have done for fifty cents.
