Thero are but two concrete grain elevators In western Kansas. One of them Is in Spearulle, and the other other in Beilefont, six miles east. Both were recently built, both are owned by the Grain Belt Elevator Co. and they are alike. Tut passengers on the Santa Fe trains passing by cannot fall to noticeu tho tall, cylindrical cylindrical grain vats, standing seven stories stories high, landmarks on the prairie visable for many miles. They are of reenforciKl concrete, have a capacity of 70,0~00 bushels each, are 84 leet in diameter and !)2 feet hlsh. There is a concrete elevator at Mc.Phergon, and Wm. Kelly will soon build one in Hutchinson. But these iu Speurvilie and Ueilclonl are the only ones west of Hutchiuson.
