Profit-Sharing With Retail Buyers
On August 1, 1914 we maaVthe announcement that if wP
could make and sell at retail 300,000 Ford cars between
August 1, 1914 and August 1, 1015 we would share profits
with the retail purchasers, to the extent of from $40 to
$G0 on each car. We have sold over 300,000 Ford cars in
the time specified, and profit-sharing checks of $50 each
will be distributed as rapidly as possible after August 15,
1$15. Retail purchasers who have not yet mailed us their
profit-sharing coupons, properly endorsed should do so
without delay.
Our plan 'to profit-share with retail purchasers Of Ford'
cars during 1914-eo has teen most successful. We thor
oughly believe in it, bat realizing the uncertainty of con
ditions generally makes it advisable 'to defer any' an
nouncement of future profit-sharing until a later dak.
We are, however, confident of our inability to reduce
costs for several months, and therefore can offer no profit
sharing for cars deliverad during August, September and
October, 1915.

Train Delayed
Mr. Iile returned from Madras,
yesterday. He was on the- train
caught in the washout Monday bet
tween North Junction and South
Junction where the train was held
from four o'clock Monday afiert
noon until three the next morning',
but he felt . almost repaid by the
sight of a cataract of mud and
dust flowing over a bluff about 80
feet in height hurrying .and under-
mining the track. '
R, E. Campbell, ari ' pld time
resident of the Wamic 'section,
was brought to The Dalles yes
terday afternoon by Dr. Dodds
of Dufur. Mr. Cambell has been
adjudged mentally unbalanced
by an examining board. He is
being detained here awaiting
conveyance to the Eastern Ore
gon hospital for the insane. Mr.
Cambell is an old time -resident
of the Wamic country and has
relatives there. It is thought
that his affliction is only tempory
and that a few months rest at
the hospital will completely re
store him to his former self.
