Mr. Yonce urges our readers to
"buy a Ford and spend the differ
ence." His easy payment plan makes
it easy now to buy a Ford. By the
way, Mr. Yonce took a 1910 model
Ford in trade a few days ago and
sold it right away to a man who is
getting good service from it. Think
of a car 12 years old stiii rendering
good service. In 1910 that car cost
$950 at the factory, while today the
same model costs only $298 at the
factory. The present low prices put
Ford cars in reach of practically ev
Great Bargain Sale.
The Economy Store announces in
its advertisement this week that it
will put on a great bargain sale com
mencing on Friday, November 10.
Some very great bargains will be giv
en in this sale. The Advertiser's job
department has printed some large
double-page circulars giving in detail
the very low prices. These have been
widely distributed by Mr. Jake
Wynne, the proprietor of the Econo
my Store. Do not fail to reap the
benefit of this harvest of low prices
for dependable merchandise. The sale
begins Friday of this week.
Sustained Heavy Loss.
Thursday afternoon Mr. F. F.
Rainsford lost one of his large barns
by fire. He had gathered his corn",
peas and a large quantity of fodder
and stored it in the building which
was burned, making his loss very
heavy besides the value of the build
ing. Unfortunately he carried no in
surance on the building or the con
tents. The origin of the fire is un
known. Mr. Rainsford was away at
his saw mill at the time the building
caught fire but arrived in time to
prevent the fire spreading to other

Community Fair a Pronounced I
As this is our publication day, it
will be impossible for us to give a re
port of the Community Fair such as
it deserves. Next week we will pub
lish a complete list of the prize win
ners in every department.
Great crowds are going in and out ^
of the store in the hotel building
where the fair is being held and the
great variety and beauty of the ex
hibits in every department baffle de
scription. Mr. C. J. Balk, the florist
from Augusta who is the judge of
the flower department of the fair,
says he never saw, except on one | j,
occasion, such very fine xhrysanthe
mums as are on display at the Com
munity Fair. He stated that many
of the chrysanthemums would sell
for one dollar each in cities. Many
of our own people are amazed thein- v
selves at the beautiful display of fine s
flowers. The judges in the other de- 0
partments were Mrs. D. R. Day, Mrs. _
F. W. Miller and Mrs. P. B. Day, Jr., J
The ladies are serving a bountiful
lunch today for the small sum of 50
cents, which includes admission into
the fair. We are delighted that these
good women who never grow weary
in well doing are being so generously
