Purple Ore New In Osmand.
Purple oro Is an unknown quantity
to tho uninitiated. To the Initiated It
to a heavy purplish powder used chief
ly as ballast by ships leaving French
ports. 80 little worth was attached
to the ore flvo months ago that It sold
In Bordeaux for l'-VSO franca a ton.
Since then It has been put to new uses,
nnd, with tho rise In demand, there
has been a corresponding rise In price.
Purple oro tins a rich Iron content, nnd
that fact has been sufficient to prompt
KngllMi manufacturers to devise new
uses for the powder. Its sudden leap
Into the limelight will porhnps stimu

minerals, the possibilities of which
may have been overlooked In Hie rapid
march of all branches of engineering.
The Reduced Cost of Tire
Mileage forYour Small Car
Do you realize that Goodyear Tires
are priced no higher today than in
1910 and that their mileage actually
costs less than it did a decade ago?
During this period Goodyear has been
able steadily to increase the amount
of mileage built into its tires and,
consequently, the cost; of Goodyear,
mileage has actually declined.
In no part of the Goodyear line has
this decline been more marked than
in the present 30 x 3, 30 x 3- and
31 x 4-inch sizes of Goodyear Tires,
made especially for small cars.
If you own a Ford, Chevrolet, Dorr,
Maxwell or other car taking these
sizes, co to your nearest Service Sta
tion tor them get the unusual value
contained in their construction and
delivered in their mileage
