Progressive Business Man.
Mr. W. P. Yonce of the Yonce Mo
tor Company is not among fios?' who
sit? with folded hands and say busi
ness has gone to the bow-wows, theres
fore it is no use to try. On the con
trary, instead of waiting for ' some
thing to "turn up" he'is alert and ac-*
tice, using every means at his com
mand to turn something. He is suc
ceeding, too. Ford orders are already
coming in faster than Ford cars can
be h?d. His large advertisement in
this issu? is positive proof that Mr.
Yonce.-is going after the business.
The advertising campaign ^ which he
projected some time ago is 'bringing
results. The easy payment plan of
seling Fords which he'tells our^read
ers about this week is proving very
popular, enabling persons of limited
income to become owners of V car
for business pr pleasure for the. fam
ily. He also calls attention to the
splendid Ford Service wich >can be
had at his garage.^ Both Ford owners,
and prospective Ford buyers should
read Mr. Yonce's advertisements this

friends. While attending school iii
Edgefield as a sweet young girl Mrsi
Lyon made, many friends here who,
besides her many relatives, are de
lighted that, she has come to1, redside
permanently ambng us. The happy
groom towers in every respect above
the,, average young man of his day
and generation, being a young man
of sterling quafities who is held in
high esteem by all who know him.
Mr. and Mrs. Lyon will be at home
to their friends after May 1 at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Fuller.
Our superior Ginger Ale is stead
ily increasing in popularity. Many
dealers who have given it a trial wil"
buy no other, as the consumers ask
fer it and will accept no substitute.
