that this life was not all, and
commanded them not to grieve
for all was well with him. He

The Proper Place to Store Your Grain is on the Fariii
And if you are thinking of an' elevator at the track, we are now designing and building many
track elevators of from 15,000 bushels up to 100,000 bushels, and can furnish complete plans and
Rapidly fluctuating prices on material make it impossible to protect above prices for any length
We hear a lot of talk now about concrete elevators-Let's see if there is any economy in concrete
elevators-Take a 60.000 bushel track elevator costing in timber construction hot to exceed $7,000 00
fully equipped with most expensive machinery and costing in concrete at least $20,000.$- the In
creased investment at 8 per cent would be $1040.00 yearly.
Say you carfiCcf no insurance on the concrete elevator, and the Insurance on the timber elevator
fully insured at $1.75 per $100 would be 60,000 bushels $0,70 insured' for 6 months-$367.00. $7000.00
building for 12 months at $1.75, or $122.00, or a total of $189.00 yearly insurance on timber against
$1040.00 yearly interest on increased investment of concrete 4 saving of about 55'). 66 yearly by
having a timber elevator and you are fully lnSiire'd.
There is only a limited amount of elevator ilrhber in this country it's being used up now.
Every day sees another community adopt the bulk system of handling grain.
