Advertiser yesterday that the Ford
factories shipped upwards of 43,000
cars during the month of March, the
largest shipments in om month
since the Fi rd cars were put on the
market. Mr. Lombard entertains the
belief that the sales will reach 300,
000 cars for the year, entitling the
purchases to a special rebate of
about $40.00 on each car.
Johnston's New School Building.
In The Advertiser's columns this
week will be found an itemized
statement of the funds received for
the erection of the handsome new
school building in the town of John
ston and the statement also shows
how the money was paid out. Those
who know the personnel of the
board of trustees that have had
charge of the building and the dis
bursing of the funds know that
every cent intrusted to them has
been wisely spent. They are men
who are not only above reproach
but they have good sound judg
ment and they concentrated
their best efforts to the end that
the people receive a maximum re
turn for their money. Study the re
port and you will see what money
wa? received and how it was spent.
Johnston will never regret the day
that the bonds were voted for the
new building. It was a good invest
ment, one that will bring large re
turns-both visible and invisible.
Death of Mr. W. S. Covar.

field county was published a fort
night ago, two veterans who receiv

Mr. W. R. Covar, Thursday at
noon. Mr. Covar enlisted in the
Confederate army at the beginning
of the war and served for four years.
He went to the front with the first
company that was formed in this
county. All down through the years
he has been loyal to the cause, the
events of the var being as fresh in
his mind as if they occurred only a
Mr. Covar was a member of the
Methodist church and was a regu
lar attendant until the weight of
years bore heavily upon him. To
his pastor, Rev. J. R. Walker who
visited him frequently in His last
illness, he spok i of his readiness to

Shadow of Death. Mr. Covar was
buried from the Methodist church

ker being assisted in ?the funeral
service by Dr. Jones and Rev. R.
G. Shannon h 01 se. Unfurled near
the altar of the church was the old
time-worn, batt-e-scarred flag which
Mr. Covar so bravely carried in the
war as color corporal of bis compa
ny. He loved the old rlag as tender
ly as ie did the members of his
home circle, and it was peculiarly
fitting thu it should have a place in
paying the last tribute to this faith
ful and brave Confederate veteran.
The interment took place in the
village cemetery at noon Friday.

W. R. Covar, and two sisters, Mrs.

Flies are the most dangerous insects known to man.
Flies are the filthiest of all vermin. They are born in filth, live on filth and carry
filth around with them. They are maggots before they are flies.
Flies may infect the food you eat. They come to your kitchen or to your dining
table, fresh from the privy vault, from the garbage can, from the manure pile, from the
cuspidors from decaying animal or vegetable matter, or from the contagious sick-room
with this sort of filth on their feet, in their bodies and they deposit it on your food,
and YOU DO swallow filth from privy vaults, etc., etc., if you eat food that has come
in contact with flies.

A New Model Typewriter
BUY IT NOW
Yes, the crowning typewriter triumph is here!
It is ju?t out-and comes years before experts expected it!
For makers have striven a life time to attain this ideal machine. And Oliver has won
again, as we scored when we gave the world its first visible writing.
There is truly no other typewriter on earth like this new Oliver "9." Think of
touch so light that the tread of a kitten will run the keys!
The new-day advances that come alone on this machine are all controlled
by Oliver. Even our own previous models-famous in their day-never
had the Optional Duplex Shift. It put the who|e control of 84 letters and characters in the little fin
gers of the right and left hands. And it lets you write them all with only 28 keys, the least to operate
of any standard typewriter. Thus writers of all other machines can immediately run the Oliver Num
ber 4V\with more speed and greater ease.
%MJ 1^ B9 f?fcJ H f?kl f rjLh?8 i)rilliarU oew 0!iver comes at the old-time price. It costs no
WW A%TC?I^HBI^m . more than lesser makes-now out-of-date when compared with this
discovery. For while the Oliver's splendid new features are costly- -we have eqaulized the added ex
pense to us by simolifying construction. Resolve right now to see this great achievement before you
spend a dollar for any typewriter. If you are using some other make you will want to see how much
more this one does. If you are using an Oliver, it naturally follows that you .want the finest model.
m pm rn . r> ^ Remember this brand-new Oliver "9" is the greatest value ever given in a
Lt Lents a Dav: typewriter. It has all our previous special inventions-visible writing, auto
matic spacer, 6 1-2-onnce touch-plus the Optional Duplex Shift. Selective Color Attachment and all these other
Yet we have decided to sell it to everyone everywhere on our famous payment plan-17. cents a d?y! Now
