WIST III Seneca Saturday night, The

In tho case, and the lady and chil
dren ure now at the Oconee Orphan
age, above Walhalla, whore they are
being cared for by Hov. Whitman,
the manager of the orphanage."
The Oconee Orphanage has hid a
hard road to travel almost s.nce its
inception, lt has truly "seen bard
lines." and lins suffered much in its
endeavors to accomplish good in its
Held of endeavor. Thero has been
much criticism, and wo have no de
sire or intention of saying that none
of the criticism was merited, but we
firmly believe that not all of the
criticisms were just. He that as lt
may, Hov. S. O. Whitman is, we be
lieve, a conscientious man, laboring
under grave dll?cultles to accomplish
pood in a field that most any man
not imbued with right desires and
strong convictions that he is called
to do such a work as ho has under
taken, would htive long since given
up in despair.
Again, he that as it may. this very
brief statement as to the unfortu
nate woman and her children is such
ns to commend anew this worthy in
stitution, the Oconee Orphanage, to
the careful and thoughtful consider
ation and liberal support of the pub
lic of our county. It ls an institu
tion, we believe, well worthy of the
charitable consideration of our en
tire people. Mistakes have been
made in management, we grant that,
but probably many of us under sim
ilar circumstances would have made
graver errors; doubtless few of us
would have done beter or as well. At
an rate, it seems to us that an insti
tution in our midst that can and will
take in and care for such unfortu
nates as those referred to above ls
well worthy of tho fullest considera
tion of the general public of Oconee.
Let us consider what this institution
means lo Oconee; let us consider
bow much more it could mean if it
had the backing that such an insti
tution should have -and must have
to reach its highest degree of effi
ciency and good.

THE UNIVERSAL CAR
A 1ST IN" OIJ IN" C g M ENT.
Mr. Edsel B. Ford, President of the Ford Motor Company, makes the fol
"We are making another reduction in the prices of Ford cars and the Ford
trucks, effective September 2, 1921. The new prices average $70.00 under
former prices, and are the lowest at which Ford cars and trucks have ever been
sold. List prices, F. O. B. Detroit, are now as follows:
NEW PRICK. OM) I Mt Ki:. Keductiot.
CHASSIS.$31)5.0? $845.00 $ SO.00
RUNABOUT. 325*00 i*70.00 15.00

COUPE.55)5. O?) ?05.00 loo o o
SEDAN . 000.00 700.OO 10O.00
This is the third price cut during the past twelve months. On Sept. 22,
1920, the price of the Ford touring car was reduced from $575 to $440; June
7th to $415, and now to $355, making total reductions in this type of $220, or
38 per cent. The same proportionate reductions have been made in all other
types. One year ago the price of the Ford Sedan was $975; now it lists at
$660 with thc same equipment.
We arc taking advantage of every known economy in the manufacture of
our products in order that wc may give them to the public at the lowest possible
price, and by doing that, we feel that we are doing the one big thing that will
help this country into more prosperous times. People are interested in prices,
and are buying when prices are right.
The production of Ford cars and trucks for August again broke all previous
high records with the total reaching $117,696. This is thc fourth consecutive
month in which our output has gone over the hundred mark, the total for the
four months being 463,074, which has gone a long way in making possible the
the present reductions. June this year, with an output of 117,247, was the
previous record month.
One noteworthy feature of our sales is the increased demand for Ford
trucks and cars for salesmen. This class of commercial business has been
gradually increasing the past sixty days and we interpret it as a very good sign
of improvement in general business.
No reduction has been made in thc price of the Fordson tractor, and none
Go over these new prices! See how little it costs to become the owner of
a Ford car or a Ford truck. Can you really afford to do without one any longer?
Let us tell you more about it, and advise you regarding the delivery of the
particular type of car in which you you are interested.
