LAWLER, April 9.--The Farmers' elevator was destroyed by fire about 4 o'clock Sunday morning.

Besides the building,. equipment and small stock, there were 21,000 pounds of timothy seed, 14,000 bushels of oats, 1,000 bushels of shelled corn, 500 bushels of barley and other grains and seeds In the building. Mike Kelly, an engineer on the Chicago, Milwaukee, St Paul and Pacific railroad, first saw the blaze when it came through a window in the top of the elevator. He was driving a light westbound engine. After stopping, he blew his whistle until the night watchman came to investigate. The watchman turned in the alarm.

Six trucks, two tractors and 50 or 75 men cleared a warehouse of some valuable seeds and removed almost all of the equipment from the nearby garage and implement shop owned by Valley Stone.

It holds every major record on land, on water and iii the air. It has the stuff that makes a winner in any grueling test . . . speed to go into the lead and the endurance to hold that lead to the finish. For it takes more than speed to win under the severest racing conditions. It takes efficiency of a rare order and the ability to keep going when the others drop out. TKat's why record-breaking automobiles, speed boats and seaplanes use the V-type engine. And like these V«lype engines, the Ford V-8 can take it. Right there is the reason for the outstanding performance of the New Ford V-8. No other low-price car can match it on the road because no other low-price car has a V-8 engine. Fact is, you have to pay more than $2000 to get a V- type eight-cylinder engine in any- other car but Ford. We invite you to drive the New Ford V-8 and let it tell its own revealing story of performance, safety and comfort. T F W E I N -- FORD DEALERS' RADIO PROGRAM. FRED "WARING and His PENNSYI VANIANS.
