To Whom It May Concern: '
Instruction for shipping: First,
determine about the amount of
wheat you wish to load into a car.
Second, go to your depot agent and
placeman order for car of sufficient
capacity to hold the amount of wheat
you wish to ship. Notify this office
of placing this order with the agent
Third, if the order has Eeen placed
for the car then proceed to load it
s first, have your wheat weighed to
determine the number of pounds you
are placing in the car. If loaded
through an elevator have the mana
ger furnish you a weight certificate
showing the amount loaded into said
car. This amount must be stated
to your agent so that he can regis
ter the same on the bill of lading.
Agent will make bill of lading and
surrender to you an original and one
duplicate copy. Retain at all times
the duplicate copy. The original must
be mailed to this office.
If shipping for sale and in case
you need funds at once, take the
original bill of lading to your bank.
Instruct your local banker to draw
a draft against this bill of lading
for not to exceed 90 per cent of the
value of the car. Instruct the banker
to draw the draft to read, "hold un
til car arrives and, is inspected," and
instruct your banker further, to
take this draft through the South
West State Bank of Wichita.

der", notify Kansas Wheat Grow
ers' Association. Immediately upon
arrival of your car the Association
will order the same inspected to es
tablish the credit. This inspection
will cost you $1.00. We will then
sell your car on the highest market
available In the United States and we
will remit to you for the same in full
just as toon as payment is made by
the purchaser. The Association will
charge 1 H cents per bushel as hand
ling charges. Freight on these cars
will be paid by the purchaser.
This method of shipping and sell
ing your own wheat to a sales agency
composed of wheat growers will give
you the benefit of the terminal mar
ket rather than the local market.

ing and billing, but do not draw

terminal are: lc for the first fifteen
days. . This includes your loading in
and loading out and the issuance of

your warehouse receipt and also!
wheat stored in the terminal, we will
secure for the shipper if needed, a
loan of 60c per bushel. Also the As-
I sociation will pay the freight and de
I duct the same from the loan for the
j shipper. Upon sale of this wheat up
i on a later date, the freight paid by
the individual will be handed on to
the purchaser, and, regardless of
where sold, the- purchase price will
be with freight added.

This church had a splendid audi
ence at both services on last Sunday.
Yet a close observer noticed several
nice, choice seats down close to the
front which remained unoccupied.
Funny. One goes to the theater
or Chautauqua tent, and make a
grand rush for the front row, and
is disappointed 1f he fails. The same
individual enters the church and gets
the very back seat, and wishes for
one further back. Funny old world,
Anyway, you are very cordially
invited to the church, bear our mu
sic, and listen to the pastors mes
sage. We are sure you will be paid
for the effort
