After the railroad, whose sphere of activities is circumscribed by the location of tracks and terminals, the most important transportation unit is the automobile, truck or other automotive conveyances. These machines know no limitations. They can go wherever the need for transportation exists. To keep them in action; to make it possible for them to operate under all and every condition, two things are necessary—fuel and lubricating oil. Sensing this need, the Standard Oil Company (Indiana) long ago began building distribution depots and service stations, at convenient intervals, throughout ten Middle Western states, from which the car owner could secure his requirements of gasoline' and lubricants in such quantities as serve him best. To supply these outlets, enormous investments have been made enlarging the refining facilities of the Company and millions more have been spent getting the refined'products to points Tchere effective, economical distribution can be made. Throughout the ten states where Standard Oil Company (Indiana) service is organized and in operation, the motorist will find a station every few miles in the country; every few'blocks in the city. At these stations he can secure his gasoline and lubricants of highest quality at the lowest market prices and he has at his command free air, free water, rest rooms and comfort stations. Conveniently located throughout the territory served, these stations are practical symbols of the effort this Company is making to adequately serve a community of thirty million people.

Are Made Which Party Shall Win in a Very Interesting Contest. (By The Associated prens) 8t. Paul, Minn., July 10.—Voters of Mlnueaota today aro -writing tUo verdict In tho unprocodentad contest Involving tha Belecttoa ot a Unltod Statea senator in succession to the lato Knute Nelen. In 8,250 polling precincts, tmllots are being marked, determining wnoth- or a supporter ot the Harding administration shall go to tho senate «or if this state shall throw its complete senatorial strength to the La Follette group. While there are ttireo candidates, It is between Gov. J. A. ft-ous, Republican and a Harding adherent, and Magnus Johnson, farmor-Iaborlto and follower of Robert M. LaFollettQ, that tha real contest lies, -James Carley, state senator and Democrat choice, Is the third candidate, but' oven his close political friends counted him out of the race before tho vol's opened at six a. m. today. Campaign Is Unusual. Tho election ends a campaign unusual in the political annals ot the state. '.Called specilleally to fill the vacancy Senator Nelson's death created, the primary Juno 18, -was markod by apathetic-balloting that attracted only a few more than 300,000 of the state's 800,000 votes. It had been expected that Gov. Pi-eua would resign uud accept appointment to the sonata, but the chief exueutivo, acting on an opinion of the state's attorney gou- eral, held auch procedure would be Illegal, and his call for the spoclal primary and election followed, immediately after tho primary there was no apparent change In the attitude ot tho RYSTage voter, and it was indicated that today's election would roll around with a repetition ot the primary vote In prospect. Thou It appearod thnt the country at large was cttally Interested in tho outcome —that it viewed It as a test between the policies of the 'Harding administration and things advocated 'by .the J_,al'\>lleuo 'bloc. This national tuterest, many politicians said, went a long way toward arousing the voters of the state to the Importance of the contest and the expectation early today was that a vote considerably Inrgor thau the primary poll would bo cast today. No Predictions, « Neutral observers found but little on which to base predictions or^ the outcome. In the general election last fall, Minnesota those as United Stales senator^ Dr. Dourlk Shipsteac!, a farm- er-laborito, giving him a total of 325,- jSIVvotes as compared to HI,S33 for Senator Frank B. Kellogg, republican. Competing In the gubernatorial vice in the some election. Gov. Preus defeated Maguns Johnson, 30',t,75G voles to 295,479 with tho candidates bearing the same party affiliation as they do today. Proua supporters say the Johnson vote last fall was carried through by the Shlpstead showing; Johnson adherents say tho farmer-laborltes made no fight for the governorship, concentrating on the senatorial raco, and that today, with all interest centered on tho single• conest, Johnson will poll a, vote in ratio to that given Shipstead- over Kellogg. Harvard, Wisconsin and Northwaat- orn. Tho new system Is said by oftidiats of tho association to bo one of the moBt progressive steps over' taken in tho clothing trade, as It Is Intended to show the merchant how to keep down the overhoad and get his goods to the ultimate consumer at the least possible expense, and at the anmo time rouder better service.
