ONLY CLEAN GRAIN
FROM THE NEW
ELEVATOR
C. H. M'LEOD EXPLAINS THE NEW
PLANT, ITS METHOD AND
ITS PURPOSE.
By A. L. STONE.
There was an advertisement in The
Missoulian yesterday morning and in
The Sentinel last night which marks
an important change in the grain I
business of western Montana and
which, therefore, is of more than
passing importance to every farmer
and every business man in this part
of the state. It is an advertisement
which should be read by everybody
who is interested in the development
of western Montana, so much of
which depends upon the improvement
of farming methods and marketing
systems.
The advertisement mentioned was
the announcement of The Missoula
Mercantile company: "Our new grain
elevator now ready for business." It
was not a large advertisement and it
was modestly worded. Yet it told of
the beginning of new things in the
grain business of this end of the
state.
Prompted by the advertisement,
President C. H. McLeod of the Mis
soula Mercantile company was asked.
yesterday afternoon, for a statement
regarding the big elevator, its equip
ment and its purpose.
"The elevator is running-that's the
main thing," said Mr. McLeod. "It
is quite a plant and it means that we
are not going to sell anything but
clean grain now. Every bit of grain
that we handle will be first-class. It
means, too, that we can handle grain
much more cheaply than we could be
fore and can grade it absolutely. The
elevator makes it possible for us to
guarantee the quality of the grain
which we handle which was impossi
ble when cars were loaded at farm
sidings and shipped direct to the pur
chaser. TWe never saw much of the
grain which we handled under the old
system. Now we inspect it all, clean
it all and sort it all.
"The elevator has a capacity of 60,
000 bushels. It contains 17 bins, hold
ing from 1,000 to 4,000 bushels each.
Conveyors and elevators make it pos- !
sible to unload grain either from
wagon or car and to place it in what
ever bin is acsired. There is a dump
scale for grain delivered by wagon,
which reduces the handling of the
grain to a minimum of effort. From
this scale, the grain is elevated to
any of the bins.
"The cleaning machinery is of the
latest type; it removes all the im
purities from the grain and delivers
it clean and bright. The clipping ma
chinery takes the tips from thie oats
and is specially useful in handling
grain which contains a percentage of
wild oats. It removes all the barbed
ends and makes this grain just as
desirable for feed as if there were nu
wild oats in it.
"This clipping process increases the
weight of the oats by the bushel; we
shipped a lot of oats yesterday which
weighed 49 pounds to the busheel:
that is an increase of about 10 pounds.
With the Price

It's worth while to consider the double advantage - economy and health-of
using cereal food.
Wheat and barley are rich in Nature's nutriment, and there's substantial evi-
dence that cereals give one greater endurance than meat.

One of our customers wrote the other
day, asking us to ship our oats in
wheat sacks hereafter, their weight
being too great for the usual oats
sack.
"We have also a feed-grinder and
mixer, which we shall use for the
preparation of all classes of chopped
and mixed feed. The whole plant is
complete and gives us what is so de
sirable, complete control over the
quality of the grain which we ship."
The new elevator is built on a
heavy concrete foundation. It is
operated entirely by electric power;
all of the machinery is modern and
every appliance is the best that could
be obtained.
Tylar B. Thompson, manager of the
wholesale department of the company,
yesterday exhibited samples of oats
treated at the elevator. The clipped
oats are as smooth and firm as
wheat; their weight is apparent. Re
plying to a question, Mr. Thompson
said:
"We shall sell no seed grain from
the elevator. Under the new seed law,
all grain must be tested as to its fer
tility and we shall buy all our seed
grain from sources which are reliable
and which are equipped with proper
testing plants."
