our Millinery Sale? Well, I guess yes.
Hat after Hat was snapped up by the
wise women of La Grande. , One wo
man was heard to say, "How can hats
be sold for so little money?" No won-,
der she was surprised and delighted
with our prices for they are very, very
low. Assortment is still fine but won't
be long. If you want a netw hat hurry.

Will be Fords - What a Valuable Message to the World
That old, reliable 4-cylinder, 5-passenger. Model T touring car, unchanged during its four years-before the public; except for a few
refinements, put on the market now for $775, equipped to the last detail. The Model T Commercial Roadster for $680. The Model T Town
Car for $900. And a new Delivery Wagon on the same Model T. Chassis for $800. These prices include full equipment: ".Extension Top,
Automatic Brass Windshield, Gas Lamps, Generator, Speedometer, 3 Oil Lamps, Tubular Horn and Kit of Tools. Is there any wonder that
'"When Ford speaks the World listens"? Prices F. O. B., La Grande, Ore.
If this were the announcement of a new model you might be skeptical of the car's merits, but.Fdrd Model T is thebest known car on
earth. More of them are on the highways of the world than there are of any other motor car.
This is the fifth season of thtf Model T and its absolute reliability has been proven by 80,000 satisfied Model T owners. Think how that
car has been tried and tested in four years, of hard service. Ford owners in every quarter of the globe' will tell you today that their Model
T cars are reliable in every emergency and of surprising efficiency and utility under any and pJl conditions. After all of the millions of miles
those cars have traveled, everybody knows the Ford Model T is right.
And that's the same sterliner car that is beiner built for 1912 75.000 of them with added features which eo to make it even more
convenient ana vamaDie ior users, uv reason or tne larereiv increased nroaucuon. witn conseaiient economv m mivirrff ana maitinc. tne
price for 1912 has been largely reduced. ; , r
Some of the Original and Exclusive Features which have made the Ford Model T the
Most Popular, Most Widely Bought and Most Serviceable Car in the World are as follows:
Marvelous Simplicity in Design Few parts, but even- part in
harmony with scientific principle. There is nothing superfluous
in Ford design, every part has its specific place and purpose and
is especially prepared to care for the demand made upon it, mak
ing a chassis compact, clean-cut, neat with great strength and ex
ceeding lightness in weight.
A Car of Vanadium Steel, intelligently and scientifically heat,
treated. Mark the fact that there is a great distinction between
heat treated steel and steel which is simply heat-hardened. Heat
treated steel combines strength with flexibility, giving a wonder
fur resistance against crystallization and breaking. Heat harden
ed steel lacks flexibility and is susceptible to breakage through
severe vibration or shock. Vanadium steel is the stronest of all
steels under tensile stress, against vibration and shock. FORD
MODEL T is the only motor car in all the world in which the en
tire chassis or car is constructed of heat treated Vanadium Steel.
Ford Magneto. A triumph of inventive genius, one of the
greatest inventions of the age, bocause of its unlimited utility as
applied to motor ears. Ford magneto is built into and becomes
a part of the fly-wheel. There are no wearing surfaces, no mov
ing wires, no ignition troubles. The simplest, safest and least lia
ble to trouble of all megnetos.
Ford Spur Planetary Transmission, through which the driver
has complete control of the car instantly, by which the motor is
always connected with the car, no time lost in shifting speeds
no crunching or stripping of gears. FORD MODEL T starts op
the instant and picks up speed with the fleetness of a deer. M"
Ford has demonstrated the corrytcness of his genius in this de
vice. It is scientifically rie;ht and is one of the elementary fea
tures in the increasing demand for Ford cars.
FORD MODEL T ride- easier, smoother, and goes over ob
structions or ruts in the road wi h less damage to the tires or t
car than any other motor car in the world. The flexibility of the,
springs coupled with the extreme light weight of the car fairly
lifts it over road obstructions. This is why one set of tires on a
FORD MODEL T will make from eight to ten thousand miles. '
Another reason why your upkeep is kept down if you buy a Ford.
There is No Weight on the moving parts or vital mechanism of
FORD MODEL T.
The Spring Suspension is unique and in. perfect accord, with
scientific principles perfectly balanced riding free from jolts,
jars and other discomforts so common to most motor cars.
The Rear Axle of the FORD MODEL T is in a class by itself,
it is not luinbered up with any burdens, of weight. It is f rep' to
do its duty, and it does it. Simple as can be strong as can be
useful as can be. It passes entirely through the hub of the wheel,
another exclusive element of safety, steadiness, and dura
bility. You know the wheels of the Ford run straight. They nev
er bow in at the top or bottom, but carry the load on an even keel.
This is also a tire economy.'
FORD MODEL T is tlie lightest weight car in the world, size,
power and capacity considered. It has the most horsepower per
pound of car weight and this is a mighty important feature,, not
only from a standpoint of hill climbing and traveling through
sand and snow, mud and sleet, but it is immensely economical on
tire wear and consumption of gasoline the heavier the car,, the
sooner tires wear out, and the more fuel is required to run it. If
weight in a motor car is necessary, why do not the makers- of
heavy cars advertise the big weightt
7 FORD MODEL T is the only 4-cylinder car in the world, size,
power and capacity considered, selling at the same low price;
Tliis is made possible by producing in large quantities, buying
materials for spot cash andhavir.g an organization that is perfect
in all departments. ,
FORD MODEL T is the che?pest car in the world to buy and
maintain, and simplest to operate. This is because of the heat
treated Vanadium Steel construction the simple and accurately
scientific design both in motor and chassis and its general .all-
FORD MODEL T is the highest priced quality car in the
worhl No exceptions, because it is made of the highest priced
materials used in the construction of motor cars.
WE ARE NOT BOASTING in any sense, but simply stating,
m justice to the prospective buyer, the facts as they exist, that,
having all these things dearly in mind, the prospective buver
can readily understand that, from the standpoint of design, con
struction and operation of the FORD MODEL T car, our price is
made possible without in any manner cheapening the product.
