THE UNIVERSAL CAR '
The Ford cars and trucks are recognized by hundreds
of Owners in Edgefield County to be the Best Car and Truck/
to Operate on Edgefield County Roads /
They are made of the best steel, and can stand the rough wear
to which they are subjected longer than larger and heavier cars.
The tire bill is less and the oil and gasoline cost per mile is very
much lower than other cars.
People are realizing this more and more, which accounts for the
steady stream of buyers who file their orders with us. These or
ders are filled as they'are filed-no one can secure an advantage
over any other buyer. Have you placed your order ]'et? If not,
you had better get on the list, so you will, not have to wait long.
THE FORDSON TRACTORS
are also growing day by day in popularity with farmers,
not now supply the demand.
