An Interview with Mr. Ford. f
The following interview was given by Mr. Ford to one of the aggressive Fortl agents,
who returned to his home am) gave it to his territory in the following newspaper advertise
ment: "On a personal visit to Mr. Henry Ford I broached the subject of a possible August 1st
The Ford Company announced last year as you well remember-that if their total
sales reached 300,000 cars between August 1, 1914, and August 1, 1915, each purchaser
during that period would receive back a refund of $40.00 to 60.00
"Mr. Ford," I suggested, "is there anything I can say to our people with regard to the
Ford Motor Company's 300,000 car rebate plan?"
"We shall sell the 300,000," was the quiet reply, "and in 11 months, a full month
ahead of August 1st!"
"Then a refund is practically assured?"
"Yes, barring the totally unexpected. We are 50,000 to 75,000 cars behind orders to
day. Factory and branches are sending out 1800 daily."
I then said to Mr. Ford: "If I could make a definite refund statement we would increase
our local sales 500 cars."
"You may say," was Mr. Ford's deliberate and significant reply to this, "You
may say that ve shall pay back to each purchaser of a Ford car between August
1, 1914, and August 1, 1915, barring the unforseen, the sum of $50. You may
say that authorized you to make this statement.''
, What can I add to the above? $15,000,000 cash coming back to Ford owners! And to
prospective Ford owners up lo August 1, 1915, it actually means. Ford Touring cars for
$490, less the $50 rebate! Ford Runabouts for $140 less the $50 rebate! What is there
left for me to say?

O. A. Bartholomew was Monday night
found in bed at his home thirty-five
miles northwest of tho city on a homo-
stead. All indications point to tho
fact that the man had committed sul-
cde a week or more before the body
was found. The body was found by a
brother, I. J. Bartholomew.
Bartholomew was sixty-three years
of ago at tho time of his death. lie
had been living on a ranch in the sand
hills for several years and It Is
thought he became demented which
caused hfs rash act. Tho revolver
which ho hold was a .32 calibre with
four loaded cartridges and an empty
shell In tho magazine. Tho body was
in a horrible condition and wbb lo
cated by tho awful smell which could
bo noticed nearly a half a mllo away.
Shorlff Salisbury and Corner Mulon-
ey were called out Monday night and
after driving near the placo they lo
cated tho body by tho odor. Tho cor
oner decided that no inquest was nec
essary as tho cause of deatli was so
evident, and tho body was buried Wed
nesday near tho home.
Bartholomew had retired before tiio
deed was committed. Ho was dressed
in his night clothes nnd ovor his heart
was a powder burnt holo indicating
where tho bullet had entered. Nothing
irregular was noticed in his habits
before his deatli and nothing was sus
pected. A search of Ills houso failed
to indicate anything that would causo
him to commit tho act.

throwing burning gasoline all over
and setting nro to her clothing. A

Mrs. Peters died yostoruy nuornoon
at three-thirty at tho Good Samaritan
hospital after suffering much pain.
Much of tho time liowovor, sno was
unconscious. Every posslblo means
wns exhausted in vain attempts to
safe her life. Miss Anna O'Connoll,
a special nurse, constantly attended
her. Her condition was so wean irom
a recent operation that sho was un
able to rally, although shortly boforo
her deatli she waa thought to be im
nrovlnK. Tho burns were very bad
over her body but her face was not
so badly burned.
Sarah W. Evans was born in spana,
Wis., Juno 1, 1887. She grew to wom
anhood there, and waa married there
to William rotors of tills city. After
her marriage sho came to this city,

occurred. At tho tlmo of tho acci
dent Mr. Peters was out on his run.
The sympathy of tho entiro community
is extended to tho- bereaved husband.
