LOMAS Hardware Company freight problems by breaking the grip of the railroads on fann-to-market transportation! That's the idea behind the nation wide better highway movement that will result in the expenditure, within five years, of Two Hundred Million Dollars for improving country roads. From these sown millions will be reaped billions, say good roads en thusiasts and an additional crop will he immeasurable the wilting out of jealousy between cities and country districts. The good road, auto, and parcel post already have done much to eliminate this century-old jeal ousy, proponents of better highways say. When the country was young there was a movement for hard-surface Three Carloads OF FirestoneTires JUST UNLOADED f|T An Evidence of Firestone Leadership. •J It Means Quality and Service.

But the rise of railroads ended the good roads movement in its infancy. This continued until the nation was at the mercy of privately-owned rail roads. Development of the automobile gave the present road movement its impetus but opinions differ now as to whether the highway propaganda owes much to the auto industry, or vice versa. There are today 2,250,000 autoes in use in the United States and 70 per cent of those made in the last two years have been bought by farmers, who certainly would have bad little use for a^tos were it not for the recent better ment of roads. There are now 2."0,000 miles of fair ly good roads in the country, out of a total mileage of 2,275,000. The federal government has voted $7"),000,000 to be distributed among the road departments of the states in the next five years, on condition the states raise amounts equal to the United States fund. Five millions of this amount are available this year, the amount being increased by five millions each year so that 1921 will see the greatest activity of history in roadJbuilding, with more than $50,(KM), 000 to be spent. Besides the $150,000,000 to be spent, by the federal government and the1 states in conjunction, it is estimated at least a third of that amount will be spent in the next five years by counties and small divisions and by good roads and motoring associations bringing the total good roads appro-j priation to $2^0,000,000. The federal appropriation can be used only for roads so situated as to form part of a national highway scheme. Stubs and roads that mere ly connect two trunk lines cannot be considered in making up the plan of* routes to foe improved, all of which must be o. k.'d by the office of pu'b lie roads and rural engineering of the department of agriculture. The federal appropriation is ex pectcd to produce 25,000 miles for first class road—not merely fair or good roads but high grade roads that will be kept in as good shape throught the year as is the average city street. It will then be up to the local com munities to provide connecting links and 'feeders" that will put every part of the state or county within touch of the main lines. The United Stales fund is intended merely to start the hail a-rolling af ter the tirst $l50,00ti,000 is expended it is believed the country will he so satisfied with the new highway sys tem ithat more and larger appropria tions will be demanded, until the whole nation is spanned by motor roads the equal of any Europe can boast.

The exceptional mechanical excel lence of BURD -111(1 II COMPRES SION PISTON RINGS is best evi denced by the fact that many of the foremost automobile engineers have adopted them as standard factory equipment, for the cars in which they have pledged their professional repu tation*. Equally as convincing is the practice of still other automobile man ufacturers who insist upon the use of BI RD PISTON RINGS in service sta tion renewals.

There is no I waste—no loss—no escape of explod ed gases past piston rini openings. Complete combustion takes place, Evey ounce of energy generated by the explosion is focused upon the pis ton head and in turn transmitted to the crank shaft. None of it gets by. Over-rich mixtures are, as a conse I quence, unnecessary. The carburetor may be adjusted to a point where a decided increase in miles per gallon will be clearly apparent without loss I of power. BURD R1NOS insure the lowest possible gas consumption. When cartoon deposits inside the I combustion chamber become heated to the "glowing" point, they ignite the compressed gases before combustion is timed to take place. The irregular explosions that follow subject, the hearing to great strain and will in I the end wreck the engine. BURD' PISTON RING'S, by preventing the formation of carbon, overcome the possibility of pre-igniiion. Another disturbing factor, due to leakage in piston rings, is that which arises when the hot gases escape through the ring openings and, com ing in contact with the cooling sys tem, condense and precipitate water upon the cylinder walls. This water, with the residue of lubricating oil, drains into the crank case and in time pollutes the oil to a degree where it has but little lubricating value. Tho dangers incident to such a condition are entirely overcome hv tho use of BURD PISTON RIXCS. RACINE IIS The Corwin Motor Company has a slogan. "When You Want Tires Say RACINE," and from the looks of tlie cars on the Bismarck streets, there must be quite a few saying it. The Racine Country Tread casing has the unique distinction of'being practical-j ly the only really high grade tire in the 5,ooi)-mile guarantee class, to sell at a nominal price. The local linn took on the distributing contract for the Racine last summer, and Mr. Co.r in a at in he tho business, he never saw a line stand up under severe service to match the Country Tread. \.t -i.i. r«A "When you travel, ride in a Pullman The Republic Dispatch is manufactured in but one size of chassis, but equipped with either a. canopy top express body for seven hundred and ninety-live dollars, or with a beautifully enameled panel body for eight hundred and twenty dollars.. f: A Honest in Construction.

STEARNS lias never attempted to build to fit a price. Factory standards have been maintained, and today the reputation of these cars throughout the world is second to none for perfection of body design and long road service. When the Knight motor attained its greatest popularity abroad, STEARNS purchased the first American rights. For six years the STEARNS-KNIGHT has proven the correctness of the sleeve valve principle, and the reputation of the Knight motor in this country is due entirely to the performance of the STEARNS. THE STEARNS-KNIGHT "EIGHT" is the very acme of motor luxury. Developing almost eighty horsepower, this model makes sport of the hills and on the level street is practically noiseless. The car weighs less than the average, and is unusually economical in gasoline consumption. We know of no car showing so line upholstery. The riding qualities are perfect. We oiler the STEARNS agency in counties west to the Montana line, and invite correspondence from those who expect to purchase a high grade car this season.
