for such estimable citizens.
The acreage in oats in this county
is much smaller than usual, being due
to the drought that prevailed at
plant season last fall. It behooves
those who have a good prospect for

done so. A liberal application of soda

i Remember the splendid Lyceum
attraction in the Edgefield Opera
House on Friday evening. If you
want to hear something really good
and laugh in the right sort of way
and in the right sort of humor, go
and hear Booth Lowrey in the Opera
Hottse on this occasion. Edgefield has
a reputation for culture and good
taste, so do not disappoint the ladies
of the Civic League who are putting
on these high class attractions for the
benefit of the uplift of our town.
Don't go to Augusta that night for
an entertainment which will cost you
a great deal more and will do you
much less good.

Ford metallurgists have been studying these problems1 for sixteen years and
know just how each unit should be made to endure a maximum of wear and
tear. They know that best results can be obtained only by the use of special
formulas for different parts, and that honest Ford parts wear from thirty-five to
one hundred per cent longer than counterfeits.
We carry complete assortments of genuine Ford parts for both passenger cars
and trucks. And our garage is equipped to give careful, prompt Ford service
from minor adjustments to complete overhauls. Drive in, it's better to be safe
than sorry. Come to the Authorized Ford dealer for service.
