U Oats andan Elgin H ERE'S the story, as it comes from Illinois, vouched for by the superin tendent of the grain elevator where the thing happened: " Here's to the Elgin Watch ! While clipping oats a few days since, our man in charge of oat clipper found one of your watches in the oats. That watch in the oats had been unloaded from the cars with power shovels down through iron grates to hopper-onto con veyor belt-to elevator-up 110 feet-discharged into garner over scales-dropped into scale hopper-then out to another conveyor belt- unloaded by tripper into storage bin-drawn out on third conveyor belt-into elevator-up 110 feet-down through garner and scales again to clipper bin-out over clipper riddle to trash box, where we found it. "The case was only slightly sprung, and the crys tal broken. We wound the watch and it started right off, and seems to run as well as any watch." This watch was not an expensive Elgin! The incident goes to prove the fact that all Elgin Watches, both for men and women, are built to withstand all the strenuous moments in busy folks' lives.
