Because of the Millions of Ford Cars iii Daily
THE UNIVERSAL CAR
the Ford Motor Company will extend the giving of service to owners of Ford cars by selling the genuine Ford
Parts to all reliable garages throughout the country, when such garages pledge the prompt and efficient giv
ing of service-the standard Ford service-to owners of Ford cars.
Up to this time, the Ford Motor Company has confined the sale of genuine Ford Parts exclusively to the
authorized Ford Dealers. Therefore, many garages throughout the country, while giving service to Ford cars,
use duplicate or imitation parts, not made by the Ford Motor Company, although charging the Ford owner
the same price as if the genuine Ford Parts had been used.
Garages that use genuine Ford Parts are Yonee Motor Company, Lyon Brothers and Tompkins. When Ford cars
are repaired at these garages none but genuine Ford Parts are used.

Mr. Newt. Broadwater was in town
Monday and was smiling as broadly
as a colored brudder at a watermil
licn feast. His effervescence of spirit
was due to the home-coming of his
only son, N. L. Broadwater, Jr., who
volunteered for service in the navy
two years ago. Mr. Broadwater said
that as he sat ruminating on his
piazza Sunday afternoon he espied a
man walking down the railroad some
distance in front of his home and
'soon recognized his boy walking from
Bouknight's station. He could not
wait for him to reach the threshold,
but ran to meet him. Nick volunteer
ed two years ago when he weighed
160 pounds and now he weighs 196.
He entered the navy at a salary of
$30 per month and was paid $60 per
month at the time he was discharged.
He served as a third-class fireman
when he entered the service and when
he was discharged he was a first-class
engineer. His record was without a j
mark against him. No wonder old
man Newt, is proud of his boy and
the record he has made. Who' would
