Oneowner writes—"TheFordTuilorSedanlam driving has covered 59,300 miles through oil kinds of weather. It is still giving perfect satisfaction." Another owner descrihcs a trip of 3217 miles in 95 hours over bad roads and through heavy rain and sleet in the mountains. "Throughout the entire trip," he writes, "the Ford performed excellently and no mechanical (rouble of any kind vas experienced. The ehattcr-proof glass undoubtedly saved us from serious injury when a prairie chicken struck the windshield while we were traveling at 65 miles an hour." Sec the nearest dealer and have him give you a demonstration ride in the Ford.

Ton con bur " Ford for a imatl JoKn payment, on economical monthly Irrmi,through lh» Authoring Ford Finance Plant of the Vnitetul Cfcail Company,) hoofs of grazing cattle Southwesr HE pioneer cittltmin who crowded the heels bf savagery was of the breed which met emergency with resourcefulness, his • word and honor needing no sureties. lii the face of adversity he wrapped himself in his abounding fortitude and calmly awaited the opportunity to again forge ahead. Like the mesquitc tree, he rvas the first to occupy the vacant space and, like the metquite in a drouth, which dies back from the top but whose roots arc deep in the soil, auspicious showers found him ready to again thrust out green boughs and luxuriant foliage. But t new wealth was destined to turn Che resourcefulness and energy of the pioneer cattle- man and farmer into more lucrative channels. In 1894 traces of crude petroleum showed in a well that was intended to bring water to the City of Corsicana, Texas. Exercising an inherent pioneer progressivencss, a group of far-sighted citizens began drilling for oil. Their visi /and foresight were rewarded when, In 1896, a producing well was brought in, marking the beginning of the first important oil field in the Southwest. Within a few brief months a movement was itarted co build a refiner)'. On Christmas Day, 1898, the first still in the Southwest was charged at Corsicana by the J. S. Cullinan Company, which, through a series of developments, bccamt the Magnolia Petroleum Company in 1911. Before the accidental discovery of oil at Cor- •icana in 1894, the vision of a Jules Verne could hardly have conjured a picture of the Southwest thirty-seven years hence. Oil, like black magic, plus the same kind of resourcefulness and forti- tude possessed by the early Southwestern pioneer, has brought untold wealth and prosperity to 2 land that would otherwise have been cattle pas- tures or cotton fields. As oil transformed the cattle range into cities and oil fields of beehive activity, the founders of the Magnolia Petroleum Company kept pace with each new need for petroleum products. As the kerosene lamp replaced the ancient and troublesome tallow candle, bringing new con- venience and pleasure to the ranchman and firmer, so was a new era of smokeless, ci.idcrlcsi luxury introduced to the traveler when, in the early part of 1901, the first oil-burning loco- motive left Corsicana over the Houston 8c Texas Central, burning Magnolia fuel oil. The Magnolia Petroleum Company, as the original refining company of the Southwest, like its pioneer predecessors, has grown with its responsibilities and opportunities until today we see the pioneer, who a generation back read his letters from home by the light of Magnolia kerosene, hurtling across his range in an eight- cylinder motor car, still served by Magnolia .. . his need's supplied bctcr than ever before by * Socony Motor Oil and Magnolia Hthyl or Max- imum-Mileage Gasoline.
