of his rank. This thoughtful act was
performed with the chivalry and gal

Buy a bottle of Chamberlain's Col

prospecting trip. Neither can it be ob

Why You Should Buy a Ford
FIRST and Foremost-IT IS A BETTER CAR.
SECOND-It must be judged independently of
it price. Large production makes selling prices
THIRD-One-half of all the cars on American
roads are FORD cars.
FOURTH-The. Ford car has back of it the
biggest financial responsibility in the automo
FIFTH-Think of it: you can never get very
far away from Ford service. And you will
find it quick, economical and courteous.

your order the quicker you will get your FORD.
